Angelica Jade Bastién: The Enduring Legacy of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, 20 Years Later (Slate)
The show spawned a generation of leather-clad, crime-fighting virtuosos who delivered comebacks between roundhouse kicks. Yet, Buffy was never merely a Strong Female Character. She was too complex, too flawed, too human for that. There have been many well-crafted lead female characters in genre fiction to debut in the 20 years since the show's premiere, but none as expertly acted, beautifully layered, and memorable as Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Sunnydale had an embarrassment of riches - and there's been no television as funny, moving or world-saving since. Buffy remains in a league of her own.

Twenty years after we started, I see that our series gave flesh (and horns) to the demons we all face in life: teenage Buffy's storylines transcended age or gender.

Into every generation, a show is born that changes the course of TV. In the 1990s, that show was Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

As the TV version of Buffy The Vampire Slayer celebrates its 20th Anniversary, some may view its endurability with a bit of shock, but for Joss Whedon the entire "movement" has been part of a master plan. Merchandising, spin-offs, cult and mainstream appeal, critical acclaim - all of it was by design.

Trivia Question from Yesterday

Jean Baptiste Charbonneau is the second child depicted on US Currency. On what legal tender will you find his image?

       Sacagawea one dollar coin                                                      Source

Jean Baptiste Charbonneau (February 11, 1805 - May 16, 1866) was an American explorer, guide, fur trapper trader, military scout during the Mexican-American War, alcalde (mayor) of Mission San Luis Rey de Francia and a gold prospector and hotel operator in Northern California. He spoke French and English, and learned German and Spanish during his six years in Europe from 1823 to 1829. He also spoke Shoshone and other western American Indian languages, which he picked up during his years of trapping and guiding.

Jean Baptiste was the son of Sacagawea, a Shoshone, and her Métis French Canadian husband Toussaint Charbonneau, who worked as a trapper and interpreter for the Lewis and Clark Expedition; he was born at Fort Mandan in North Dakota. He was taken by his parents as an infant across the country. The Expedition co-leader William Clark nicknamed the boy Pomp. He lived with Clark in St. Louis, Missouri as a boy, where he attended St. Louis Academy. Clark paid for his education. Sacagawea and Toussaint Charbonneau also had a second child, a daughter named Lizette Charbonneau who, as there is no later record of her among William Clark's papers, is believed to have died in childhood.

Charbonneau's image appears with that of his mother on the United States Sacagawea dollar bronze one dollar coin. He is the 2nd child depicted on United States currency. Pompeys Pillar on the Yellowstone River in Montana and the community of Charbonneau, Oregon are named for him.        Source

Randall was first and correct with:
   Sacagawea Dollar

Alan J wrote:
   The Sacagawea Dollar.

Adam answered:
   The Dollar coin.

Billy in Cypress said:
   Jean Baptiste Charbonneau's small image with his mother's large image is on the Sacagawea "golden" dollar coin according to a google search.
  A future search revealed a "Fool's Golden*" commemorative coin featuring CpPDJT-ID wearing his emperor's new clothes showing his small fingers grabbing his smaller penis (magnifying glass required for those few who are interested in trivial things). The reverse side features Empress Melania in all her naked splendor, but in faux silver fitting her inferior position as a mere decorative sex slave, 1/10 size of CpPDJT-ID image on obverse.

DJ Useo responded:
   Nicely played. I am well & truly stumped. Hi, y'all.

Joe S     replied:
   Little known fact, you will find him on the Sacagawea dollar coin. Yes it's true, little known fact. Do you know who the first child depicted on US currency? It's Virginia Dare, the first (white) child born on the North American Continent. Well, on an island off the coast. Other than that do you know why Virginia Dare is famous? Well, I'm gonna tell ya.
  Virginia Dare is famous because she was born to the Lost Colony of Roanoke. See, the whole Colony disappeared around 1590 or so, and no one knows for sure what happened, except for one man. Chuck Norris. Little known alternative fact, Chuck Norris was doing a bit of time traveling using his time traveling double-reverse roundhouse kick. This is the same maneuver he tried to teach Superman, but Superman could never get the hang of it so he had to settle for flying very fast in reverse rotation to the Earth. Same results but more time consuming than the double-reverse roundhouse kick. Chuck Norris also tried to teach the double-reverse roundhouse kick to his very good friend Donald Trump, but although Donald Trump has a bigly brain he was unable to perform the maneuver because he is too fat, and slow, and lazy, and not the least bit athletic, and he can't fly, so...
  Anyway Chuck Norris was messing around the Barrier Islands when he detected a large fleet of Spanish Pirates heading for Roanoke so he decided to warn the colonists, to save any trouble as Spanish Pirates are a nasty bunch. So anyway, Chuck Norris shuttled everyone to the mainland and told everyone to head inland and rebuild somewhere safe. Before the colonists left Roanoke they left a guy to write notes to explain what happened so when someone came looking for them. But I guess the guy figured out that if anyone would see the notes it would be the Pirates, so he didn't finish the notes. All he left behind was the word "Croatoan" carved in a tree. So that's how that happened, alternative facts.

Hollywood Walk of Fame

John Goodman

Jeff Bridges hilariously resurrected his iconic slacker character "The Dude" from "The Big Lebowski" Friday as he honored his friend John Goodman at a celebration of the actor's glittering career.

Golden Globe and Emmy Award-winner Goodman, 64, had invited his co-star in the 1998 Coen brothers' movie as his guest speaker as he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Instead of reading out the usual sober tribute celebrities get, along with their star, Bridges took to the stage in the famously laid-back Dude's knitted cardigan and recited a riff on the character's graveside eulogy from the movie.

Describing Goodman as "a man of his times, a man of our times" and "a legend," Bridges finished with a twist on the film's most famous line -- "Goodnight, sweet prince," itself a nod to Shakespeare's Hamlet -- as he commended the star to the Hollywood Boulevard sidewalk.

"A star for you, a star because we love you so well... what time is it? Afternoon? Good afternoon, sweet prince," he said, before the actors shared a warm embrace.

Rare Eeissues For Record Store Day

David Bowie

Two rare recordings from rock legend David Bowie will be reissued next month for the 10th anniversary of Record Store Day, the global celebration of vinyl's rebirth, his label said Friday.

The albums, to be released in limited quantity on Record Store Day on April 22, include a three-LP live album from 1974 called "Cracked Actor."

The concert in Los Angeles came as Bowie, who earlier defined glam rock, embraced the soul music scene of Philadelphia.

The 1974 concert featured Bowie sharing vocals with soul great Luther Vandross.

The second reissue is "Bowpromo," a rare 1971 promotional release with alternative versions of tracks that would come out later that year on one of Bowie's classic albums, "Hunky Dory."

Will Sing Again

Stolen Stradivarius

After a meticulous restoration that took more than a year, a Stradivarius violin that was stolen from violinist Roman Totenberg and missing for decades is about to return to the stage.

Mira Wang, a violinist who immigrated to the United States from China 30 years ago to study under Totenberg, will play the instrument at a private concert in New York on March 13, and more performances after that are possible.

The violin known as the Ames Stradivarius is one of roughly 550 surviving instruments made by Antonio Stradivari, history's most renowned violin maker. Built in 1734, it's likely worth millions of dollars, although it hasn't been appraised since it was recovered.

It was stolen in 1980 while Totenberg was greeting well-wishers after a performance in Boston, and wasn't recovered until 2015, three years after Totenberg died at age 102.

The presumed thief, journeyman violinist Philip Johnson, was himself dying of pancreatic cancer when he showed his ex-wife a locked violin case in his basement. Nearly four years after his death, she took the violin inside the case for an appraisal and learned it was the stolen Stradivarius. It was soon returned to Totenberg's family.

Las Vegas Show Canceled

Criss Angel

Criss Angel's Las Vegas show came to an abrupt halt after the magician reportedly passed out during one of his acts.

The incident occurred Friday night during Angel's Mindfreak Live! show at the Luxor hotel and one concerned audience member took to Facebook to document what happened.

"What an awful experience!" Peter Sehl posted to the official Mindfreak Facebook page. "10 mins into the show, Criss Angel was doing his upside down straitjacket stunt and was almost out after spinning for 2 mins and then they let him down. He stopped moving, curtain down. Break for 15 mins. Now show cancelled. Hope he is ok!! Didn't appreciated peoples comments as they were leaving."

The stunt requires the famous illusionist to hang upside down while buckled into a double-straitjacketed harness. He suffered a shoulder injury when performing a similar routine in New York City's Times Square in 2013, forcing a 10-week hiatus of his show Believe.

Governor Signs Sharia Law

South Dakota

South Dakota joined three other states Friday that have enacted laws giving broad legal protections to faith-based organizations that refuse based on their religious beliefs to place children in certain households.

Before signing the bill, Republican Gov. Dennis Daugaard said he was concerned private child-placement agencies acting in the best interest of a child could be subject to a lawsuit when denying placement to someone in a "protected class," such as members of the LGBT community. He hopes the legislation would forestall that.

Before Friday, Daugaard was mum on the measure that supporters say preemptively protects religious adoption and foster care agencies from things like state funding cuts, revoked licenses and denied contracts if South Dakota were to eventually ban discrimination based on sexual orientation as several other states have done.

Libby Skarin, policy director of ACLU South Dakota, said Daugaard's decision shows South Dakotans that he cares about private agencies more than the needs of children. She said the group is exploring legal challenges to the new law and is encouraging kids and adults who feel negative impacts to step forward.

3,000 Glaciers Are Retreating

New Zealand

New Zealand has more than 3,000 glaciers -- and they're retreating, new images released by NASA Friday show.The glaciers have been receding since 1890 with short periods of small advances, NASA said. Most of the glaciers are located in the Southern Alps on the South Island in New Zealand.

An image taken on Jan. 12, 1990 by the NASA and United States Geological Survey Landsat shows the area, measuring 39 by 46 kilometers, covered in white. That area includes the Mueller, Hooker and Tasman glaciers on New Zealand's South Island.

When you fast forward to 2017, the areas turn from white to gray, an image taken by NASA's Advanced Spaceborne Thermal Emission and Reflection Radiometer (ASTER) on Jan. 29 shows. The most recent image shows less snow cover and larger terminal lakes.

There can be different causes for a glacier's retreat, ASTER Science Team Leader Michael Abrams told International Business Times .

The primary cause is that melting surpasses accumulation of snow," said Abrams. "This change in the precipitation/melting budget can be a local weather condition, or a more regional weather change."

Italian Band Deported

Soviet Soviet

An Italian band was deported for trying to play a gig at SXSW.

The group Soviet Soviet detailed its deportation incident on Facebook, explaining they were arrested and spent the night in jail for "illegal immigration" before being deported to Italy this week.

Soviet Soviet stated they had the necessary paperwork to perform their shows because they were not receiving payment (if they were getting paid, they would have needed work visas).

The mix-up seemed to come down to the details as the shows were charging admission, therefore officials felt the alternative/indie rock group should have obtained work visas.

The trio was individually interrogated for hours and the owner of the label was called to no avail.

Working Longer Hours Under New Guidelines

Doctors In Training

Days may get a lot longer for some doctors in training after the group that oversees medical education in the United States rolled back controversial rules limiting the number of hours first-year residents may work.

Beginning July 1, doctors in their first year of training after medical school may once again care for patients for up to 24 hours at a time and work a total of 80 hours per week, the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) announced on Friday.

In 2011, the group restricted these first-year residents to 16 hours at a stretch over concerns that patient care could suffer if trainees were overly tired.

Opponents at the time argued the restrictions did not protect patients and limited educational opportunities for trainees. Their concerns were largely confirmed by a flurry of new research.

The rule change is consistent with the most recent evidence, said Dr. Michael Leitman, senior associate dean for graduate medical education at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai in New York. But hospitals might not immediately change trainees' schedules, he said.

The Interwar Gender-Bending Glamour of the Beach Pyjama


Time Is Always Blurry

The Quantum Realm

What is time? The complexity of this deceptively simple question was aptly highlighted in the fourth century by Saint Augustine when he said: "If no one asks me, I know what it is. If I wish to explain it to him who asks, I do not know."

You'd think nearly 1,600 years later, we'd know better, but despite our best efforts, we haven't gone beyond witticisms like "time is what happens when nothing else does." We still can't define what time is, we still don't know what gives direction to the arrow of time, and we have no idea if the flow of time from the past to the present to the future is something that is highly subjective or an essential quality of reality.

As if things weren't complicated enough, the picture is further muddled when we take the principles of quantum mechanics and general relativity into consideration. A study published in the latest edition of the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, which has done so, has now revealed a fundamental limitation in our ability to measure time.

"Our findings suggest that we need to re-examine our ideas about the nature of time when both quantum mechanics and general relativity are taken into account," study lead author Esteban Castro from the University of Vienna and the Austrian Academy of Sciences said in a statement.

The study builds upon two fundamental properties of the universe. One, that at its deepest level, nature is inherently uncertain (as described by Heisenberg's uncertainty principle), and two, that the flow of time is disrupted by the presence of masses or sources of energy (as described by Einstein's general theory of relativity).

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.
