Henry Rollins: Humanity Is at an All-Time Low, but at Least the Music Sounds Great (LA Weekly) In the omnipresent dimness in which humanity currently toils, music sounds better than ever. I am not an escapist, but when your kung fu sucks, I leave the dojo, the village and the valley, to paraphrase a badly overdubbed martial arts film I saw years ago.

Jordan Weissmann: Hillary Clinton Has a Quietly Bold Idea to Stop Drug Price Spikes (Slate)
Hillary Clinton already had a plan to lower prescription drug costs. In fact, it was one of the first pieces of her agenda that she rolled out. But following the furor over Mylan's decision to increase EpiPen prices by some 500 percent, her campaign has released a new proposal specifically aimed at stopping "unjustified" price spikes on pharmaceuticals. And it's surprisingly bold.

Michelle Goldberg: Why Isn't It a Bigger Deal That Trump Is Being Advised by Sadistic Pervert Roger Ailes? (Slate)
A vicious misogynist and workplace predator is working with the Republican presidential nominee. This is not normal.

the mogul's New York modeling agency, Trump Model Management, has profited from using foreign models who came to the United States on tourist visas that did not permit them to work here, according to three former Trump models, all noncitizens, who shared their stories with Mother Jones.

Trivia Question from Yesterday

Craig Ferguson played the part of Drew Carey's boss, Nigel Wick, on The Drew Carey Show. Who portrayed Mr. Wick's mother, Maggie?

       Richard Chamberlain                                                      Source

The Drew Carey Show is an American sitcom that aired on ABC from 1995 to 2004, and was set in Cleveland, Ohio, and revolved around the retail office and home life of "everyman" Drew Carey, a fictionalized version of the actor.        Source

Richard Chamberlain ... Maggie Wick (2 episodes, 2002)        Source

   Richard Chamberlain, well that came as a surprise. I don't know why it should have though, I never watched The Drew Carey Show. In fact I do my best to avoid Drew Carey in every way possible. That's a shame because I used to enjoy The Price I Right. No longer, I'm afraid, no longer.

Embraces Modern Technology

Jane Goodall

Best known for rolling with chimpanzees in the African wild and revealing the apes' true nature as never before, Jane Goodall is now embracing modern technology in her mission to save the planet.

And at 82, the British primatologist said she has more energy than ever, particularly due to her work with young people around the world.

"I do have hope for the future, even though I think I have seen as much as anybody of the harm that we are inflicting on this planet," Goodall told attendees at the International Union for Conservation of Nature's World Conservation Congress in Honolulu.

She was the first researcher to give names -- rather than numbers -- to the apes, and was the first to observe them using tools, a capacity that was until then thought to belong only to humans.

Now, her Jane Goodall Institute is using satellite imagery, digital mapping and NASA technology to encourage large-scale conservation projects in the forests of Africa.

Climate Change Skeptics

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said on Sunday that climate change scepticism is over, the day after the United States joined China to ratify the Paris agreement to curb climate-warming emissions.

Climate change skeptics dispute the widely held understanding that excessive levels of emissions in the atmosphere cause global warming and harm the environment, and have become increasingly side-lined at international summits.

"The debate over climate phenomenon is over scientifically and environmentally," said Ban, adding that the influence of climate change deniers or skeptics has waned.

"It is affecting our day-to-day life," Ban said, at a new conference ahead of a G20 summit in the eastern Chinese city of Hangzhou.

Russian Blogger Faces Jail

Pokemon Go

A young Russian blogger has been charged with inciting hatred and offending religious sensibilities after filming himself playing Pokemon Go in a Yekaterinberg cathedral.

Ruslan Sokolovski is in detention for two months, a statement by the investigative committee said Saturday, and could face a five-year jail term if convicted.

On August 11, Sokolovski published a video on his YouTube channel showing him entering the Church of All Saints in Yekaterinburg and playing Pokemon Go on his iPhone throughout the cathedral.

But investigators said searches on his home had shown evidence of incitement to hatred and attacks on the liberty of faith.

New Type Of Tourniquet

Combat Medics

Throughout the history of modern warfare, countless wounded fighters have been saved from bleeding to death by tourniquets -- the straps or ties that wrap around a damaged limb and staunch hemorrhaging.

But what if a soldier is shot through the pelvis, or in the armpit, where a tourniquet would be of no use?

Militaries the world over have grappled with the question for decades, and the issue took on new urgency during the US-led wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

The service currently is training and equipping its combat medics with a new device, called a junctional tourniquet.

It looks a bit like a belt, but comes with two inflatable bladders that can be pumped up to put pressure over a wound, even in locations where a traditional tourniquet would be ineffective.

Gets Support In Gag Order Lawsuit


Technology, media, pharmaceutical and other companies, along with major corporate lobbying groups, filed legal briefs on Friday in support of a Microsoft Corp lawsuit that aims to strike down a law preventing companies from telling customers the government is seeking their data.

Friday was the deadline for filing of friend-of-the-court briefs by nonparticipants in the case. The filings show broad support for Microsoft and the technology industry in its latest high-profile clash with the U.S. Justice Department over digital privacy and surveillance.

Microsoft's backers included the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the National Association of Manufacturers, Delta Air Lines Inc, Eli Lilly and Co, BP America, the Washington Post, Fox News, the National Newspaper Association, Apple Inc, Alphabet Inc's Google, Inc, the Electronic Frontier Foundation and many others.

Microsoft filed its lawsuit in Seattle federal court in April, arguing that a law allowing the government to seize computer data located on third-party computers and often barring companies from telling their customers that they are targets is unconstitutional.

Microsoft says the government is violating the Fourth Amendment, which establishes the right for people and businesses to know if the government searches or seizes their property, in addition to Microsoft's First Amendment right to free speech.

Hires Fired Missouri Educator


A University of Missouri assistant communications professor fired after interfering with journalists and police during student protests nearly a year ago has a new job with a university in Washington state.

Melissa Click, whose profile now appears on Gonzaga University's website, has been hired to a one-year lecturer job in the undergraduate communication studies department at the private Catholic school in Spokane.

Click's firing by Missouri in February followed run-ins with police during October 2015 protests in Columbia and with two student journalists weeks later on the campus, including a videotaped confrontation in which she called for "some muscle" to remove a student videographer from the protest area.

That video went viral, and more than 100 Missouri lawmakers, mostly Republican, called for her ouster. Click later said she regretted her actions but insisted her firing was unfair.

Elisabeth Mermann-Jozwiak, dean of Gonzaga's College of Arts and Sciences, said in a statement to Missouri media outlets that Gonzaga officials were aware of Click's recent past but, after a national search, deemed her "the most qualified and experienced candidate for the position."



California state Senate president Kevin De Leon calls for the removal of Santa Clara County Judge Aaron Persky from the bench, at a protest outside the Santa Clara County Jail in San Jose, Calif., Friday, Sept. 2, 2016. Willingham and others called for the recall of Persky because of the six-month jail term he sentenced Brock Turner to for a sexual assault conviction. Turner was released from the jail earlier Friday after serving half of his six month sentence.

10 Strange Animals You Didn't Know Existed


'One Step From Going Extinct'

Eastern Gorillas

The world's largest gorillas have been pushed to the brink of extinction by a surge of illegal hunting in the Democratic Republic of Congo, and are now critically endangered, officials said Sunday.

With just 5,000 Eastern gorillas (Gorilla beringei) left on Earth, the majestic species now faces the risk of disappearing completely, officials said at the International Union for Conservation of Nature's global conference in Honolulu.

Four out of six of the Earth's great apes are now critically endangered, "only one step away from going extinct," including the Eastern Gorilla, Western Gorilla, Bornean Orangutan and Sumatran Orangutan, said the IUCN in an update to its Red List, the world's most comprehensive inventory of plant and animal species.

War, hunting and loss of land to refugees in the past 20 years have led to a "devastating population decline of more than 70 percent," for the Eastern gorilla, said the IUCN's update.

One of the two subspecies of Eastern gorilla, known as Grauer's gorilla (G. b. graueri), has drastically declined since 1994 when there were 16,900 individuals, to just 3,800 in 2015.

Balkan Countries Contest Heritage

Saint Teresa

When Pope Francis canonises Mother Teresa on Sunday, two Balkan countries will be celebrating the sainthood of a woman they both fiercely claim as their own.

While she is famed for her work with the poor in the Indian city of Kolkata, the late missionary's origins have been hotly disputed in southeastern Europe, where she grew up.

Born Agnes Gonxha Bojaxhiu in 1910 in multi-cultural Skopje -- then part of the Ottoman Empire and now capital of the Republic of Macedonia -- Mother Teresa had an ethnic Albanian mother whose family came from Kosovo.

Her father's roots are more debated: most people, especially in Albania, say he too was ethnically Albanian, although some Macedonians have argued he was a Vlach, another Balkan ethnic group.

The squabble exposes old ethnic rivalries in the Balkans, with neighbours Albania and Macedonia taking competitive pride in the Nobel Peace Prize winner -- both countries have statues, roads, hospitals and other monuments in her name.

Weekend Box Office

'Don't Breathe'

The horror thriller "Don't Breathe" topped the box office for the second straight week, while several new releases struggled to find traction over a typically sleepy Labor Day weekend at North American movie theaters.

The Sony Screen Gems release made an estimated $15.7 million in its second weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday. The R-rated "Don't Breathe," about an ill-considered home invasion of a blind man, is on pace to make $19.4 million over the four-day holiday weekend. Produced for just $10 million, the film has made $51.1 million in total.

Its success spelled doom for the other horror film trying to gain a foothold: "Morgan," a low-budget science-fiction thriller directed by Ridley Scott's son, Luke Scott. Opening on more than 2,000 screens, it bombed with just $2 million.

Heading into a fall that includes some seemingly surefire blockbusters such as "Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them," ''Doctor Strange" and "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story," the 2016 box office is running 5.7 percent ahead of last year.

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to comScore. Where available, the latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Tuesday.

    1. "Don't Breathe," $15.7 million ($5.3 million international).
    2. "Suicide Squad," $10 million ($11.8 million international).
    3. "Pete's Dragon," $6.5 million ($3.3 million international).
    4. "Kubo and the Two Strings," $6.5 million ($1.7 million international).
    5. "Sausage Party," $5.3 million ($4.6 million international).
    6. "The Light Between Oceans," $5 million.
    7. "Bad Moms," $4.7 million ($5 million international).
    8. "War Dogs," $4.7 million ($3.6 million international).
    9. "Hell or High Water," $4.5 million.
   10. "Mechanic: Resurrection," $4.3 million ($7.6 million international).

Do you have something to say?
Anything that increased your blood pressure, or, even better, amused or entertained?

Do you have a great album no one's heard?
How about a favorite TV show, movie, book, play, cartoon, or legal amusement?
A popular artist that just plain pisses you off?
A box set the whole world should own?
Vile, filthy rumors about Republican hypocrites?

Just plain vile, filthy rumors?

In other words, submissions are welcome.
