Mark Morford: Read a book! Smart people live longer (SF Gate)
If you're intelligent, you can already deduce why the above headline is true, and it has less to do with smart people having some sort of mysterious genetic advantage - though that appears to be at least partly the case, as well - and more to do with higher intelligence translating directly to, well, better life choices, more skillful self-care, improved deftness at survival, at not being crushed by the ever-present specter of doom.


Mark Morford: "Forbes endorses LSD: Is the end near?" (SF Gate)
it's a brave new drug-addled world, darlings, one in which pretty much everyone under 40 is already taking some sort of stimulant, activator, mood-modifier brain-accelerator nerve-tamer, be they Big Pharma classics like Adderall or Zoloft, or brain-enhancers like modafinil , or cannabis oil, or any of a whole new category of home-grown, unclassifiable, unregulated "herbal ecstasy" concoctions, and well beyond.


Paul Krugman: Bully for Neurotoxins (NY Times Blog)
The other striking thing is that the editorial simply takes it as a given that any regulation is bad, including regulations on mercury and coal ash (which is also loaded with mercury and other heavy metals like lead). Let's see: mercury is a neurotoxin, which can impair intelligence; other heavy metals can cause cancer and poison people in a variety of ways. In what moral or even economic universe is it obviously wrong to limit emissions of neurotoxins?


Josh Barro: "Dear Powerball Winner: Take Our Advice and Take the Annuity" (NY Times)
Your Powerball win is likely to bring a lot of long-lost friends and relatives out of the woodwork with stories about why they need money. Being able to tell them that this year's check is only for $22.6 million, and that's really not very much after taxes and the new mansion and the summer house and the cars and the boats and the new political magazine, will help you conserve your fortune.


Christian Lorentzen: Can Short Stories Still Shock? (Vulture)
It seems a quaint idea now, but there was once such a thing as a celebrity anthologist.


Leo Benedictus: "Vitally important news: over-65s don't get sarcasm" (The Guardian)
A new study concludes that older people can't tell when others are being a bit sarky. However will they cope?

Send your answer to Marty









Trivia Question from Yesterday


This musician was born Brian Hugh Warner. By what name is he professionally known?


       Marilyn Manson                                                      Source


Brian Hugh Warner (born January 5, 1969), known professionally as Marilyn Manson, is an American musician, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, shock-rocker, actor, painter, multimedia artist, and former music journalist. He is known for his controversial stage personality and image as the lead singer of the band Marilyn Manson, which he co-founded with Daisy Berkowitz and of which he remains the only constant member. His stage name was formed by juxtaposing the names of two American cultural icons, namely actressMarilyn Monroe and murderer Charles Manson.        Source






Alan J was first and correct with:
   Marilyn Manson.



Adam answered:
   Marilyn Manson.



Jim from CA, retired to ID, wrote:

Marian said:
   Marilyn Manson



Deborah replied:
   I looked this up - Brian Hugh Warner is better known as Marilyn Manson. Not my taste in music (or sartorial style).
  It's been a week and I can't seem to shake this crud. Is it a worse bug than in past years? Have I gone soft since I've not been ill in a few years? Who knows? It's just an ugly thing is all I know.
  Happy Hump Day.




Dale of Diamond Dementia Springs, Norcali responded:
   How do you misbehave when the "suits" ain't around? Still not up to snuff yet.
  Marilyn Manson, no David Bowie! I'm still tripping on Bowie. Saw him at Winterland in October of 72. Ziggy Stardust blew everyone away. Sylvester and His Hot Band and Flo & Eddie opened. Shape shifting and mind bending show!





Lois Trapped In The Murky Depths Of A Diseased Mind said:
   Apparently, Marilyn Manson was once a real boy! However years of looking like Nicolas Cage drove him over the edge and forced him to alter his appearance drastically, trying his best to pass for Demi Moore or, at times, Buffalo Bill on acid, and even going so far as to impersonate a giant humann hot dog for the amusement of children of all ages. Well, at least he still has his NOSE!





DJ Useo answered:
   I actually know this one already. It's Marilyn Manson.
  I'm very mixed on his tunes, but I actually have some of his albums.
  One of my most popular mashups is him singing over the Lawrence Welk Orchestra. Lol.





Gateway Mike responded:
   Wasn't he that kid Paul on the "Wonder Years"? NO, not ever...
  He's The Real Marilyn Manson!
  The Rams are gone from St. Louis.
  Part of what I read locally said that Stan K took the Rams from LA to St. Louis for a bigger stadium and more money. Now he's taking them to LA for a bigger stadium and more money. The fix was in.
  Greed seems to know no bounds.
  We were worried when he added the "Top Tier" escape clause to his contract with St. Louis.
  It's like every worker in America can get an above average income. (Not possible)
  I'm just really glad that Bart got to see them win the Super Bowl.
  (Takes a shot)

  OMG! Marilyn Manson! (shudder) I don't like Marilyn Manson. He scares the shit out of me. He's like the epitome of big scary clowns.

Shutting Down

Al-Jazeera

Al-Jazeera America, the cable news channel launched by the global Qatar-based media group with great fanfare in 2013, will be shut down April 30, the company said Wednesday.

An internal memo from director general Mostefa Souag said the decision was "driven by the fact that our business model is simply not sustainable in light of the economic challenges in the US media marketplace."

Souag said the move would be accompanied by an expansion of Al-Jazeera's digital services "to broaden our multi-platform presence in the United States."

The shutdown comes less than three years after a massive investment in a cable news operation aimed at rivaling CNN, Fox News and MSNBC, but which failed to attract significant numbers of viewers.

While its channel struggled to reach viewers, Al-Jazeera's journalism won a number of awards including commendations from Peabody, Emmy, Gracie, Eppy and DuPont.

Won't Work For GOP Candidates

Duke Nukem

Maybe you saw on Twitter that Donald Trump attempted to hire the voice of Duke Nukem, Jon St. John, to be the advertising voice for his campaign. Well, that may be true. Or it may have been Ted Cruz.

In a Facebook post St. John wrote, "I don't like to turn down jobs...especially when it's a national ad campaign that pays pretty well. But I have a conscience and could not accept a gig to be the advertising voice of the Republican party's leading candidate for president. Thanks for the kind offer, but I will sleep just fine at night knowing I made a choice I can live with. Meanwhile I'm happy to be recording a new video game today."

A tweet by @killhouse_vanho assumed St. John was implying Donald Trump, the current top-ranked candidate in most polls.

But when contacted for comment, St. John clarified:

I should have written "a leading GOP candidate for president. It might have been Trump or Cruz. Either way, I would not have done it."

Wins Pritzker Prize

Alejandro Aravena

Chilean architect Alejandro Aravena won the prestigious 2016 Pritzker Prize Wednesday, earning praise for "powerful" designs that address key social and economic challenges of the 21st century.

The 48-year-old Aravena, who is based in Santiago, will receive the $100,000 award and bronze medallion at a ceremony at UN headquarters in New York on April 4.

He is the 41st Pritzker laureate, and only the fourth from Latin America.

The Pritzker jury highlighted Aravena's work at ELEMENTAL, a Santiago architectural group that focuses on projects of public interest and social impact.

It has produced more than 2,500 units of affordable housing, including an innovative "half a good house" that allows residents to complete the work themselves, thereby incrementally raising their living standards.

Bedecks Beard With Lego Bricks

Ai Weiwei

Dissident Chinese artist Ai Weiwei published photos of himself with Lego hanging off his moustache and beard on Wednesday, celebrating the toymaker's decision to back down on rules that blocked his bulk order of bricks.

Lego said on Tuesday it had dropped restrictions on large orders after facing a storm of criticism for declining his request for pieces for a large public work in Australia in October.

Ai, known for his criticism of China's rights record, had accused the Danish toymaker of censorship and set up collection points for people to send him bricks.

Lego said at the time it had a long-running policy of not fulfilling bulk orders or donating bricks if they knew they would be used as part of a "political agenda".

Customers wanting to build public displays out of Lego bricks would now only have to make it clear that the company did not endorse the project, it added.

Stave Off Next Ice Age

Global Warming

Global warming is likely to disrupt a natural cycle of ice ages and contribute to delaying the onset of the next big freeze until about 100,000 years from now, scientists said on Wednesday.

In the past million years, the world has had about 10 ice ages before swinging back to warmer conditions like the present. In the last ice age that ended 12,000 years ago, ice sheets blanketed what is now Canada, northern Europe and Siberia.

In a new explanation for the long-lasting plunges in global temperatures that cause ice ages, scientists pointed to a combination of long-term shifts in the Earth's orbit around the sun, together with levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.

They said the planet seemed naturally on track to escape an ice age for the next 50,000 years, an unusually long period of warmth, according to the study led by the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research.

But rising man-made greenhouse gas emissions since the Industrial Revolution began in the 18th century could mean the balmy period will last for 100,000 years, they wrote in the journal Nature.

Bulgarians carry cow bells as they perform an ancient Surva ritual in the village of Kosharevo, south of the capital Sofia, late Wednesday, Jan. 13, 2016. The authentic pagan festival called Surva, is held every year on 13th and 14th of January in western part of Bulgaria to mark the New Year. Surva is performed by costumed men, some in sheepskin, or other colorful garments, bells and masks, who walk around and dance to scare away the evil spirits, in hope to provide a good harvest, health, fertility, and happiness.

Senator From Goldman Sachs

Ted Cruz

Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz failed to disclose to the Federal Election Commission a loan from Goldman Sachs for as much as $500,000 that was used to help finance his successful 2012 U.S. Senate campaign, the New York Times reported on Wednesday.

The loan does not appear in reports the Ted Cruz for Senate Committee filed with the FEC, in which candidates are required to disclose the source of money they borrow to finance their campaigns, the newspaper reported.

Other campaigns have been fined for failing to make such disclosures, which are intended to inform voters and prevent candidates from receiving special treatment from lenders, the Times said.

Cruz and his wife, Heidi, who is on leave as a managing director at Goldman Sachs, also received a loan from Citibank for up to $500,000, but it was not clear whether that money was used in the campaign, the newspaper said.

Appeals Surrogacy Ruling

Sherri Shepherd

Actress Sherri Shepherd is appealing a Pennsylvania court ruling that found her responsible for a child born to a surrogate before she divorced.

The Legal Intelligencer reports Wednesday that Shepherd is appealing the Superior Court decision to the state's high court.

Shepherd's ex-husband, Lamar Sally, is raising the 1-year-old boy in Los Angeles and has sought $4,100 in monthly child support from the actress.

Court papers show Shepherd paid more than $100,000 in fees to a New Jersey agency and supported the Pennsylvania surrogate's pregnancy until her marriage faltered. She then tried to void the contract.

Surrogacy advocates say the Superior Court ruling last year is the first to declare surrogacy contracts legal and binding in Pennsylvania.

Bison Slaughter To Continue

Yellowstone

Large numbers of migrating Yellowstone National Park bison are likely to face slaughter for at least the next couple of winters as officials weigh changes to a 15-year-old agreement that drives the practice, the park's superintendent said.

Most of the bison removed from America's first national park are captured and sent to slaughter over concerns they may transmit the disease brucellosis to Montana livestock.

Yellowstone Superintendent Dan Wenk said he's hopeful the slaughters eventually will be phased out and replaced by hunting. However, that's not feasible in the short term with a near-record population of about 4,900 park bison, Wenk told The Associated Press.

The park has agreed to reduce bison numbers as a way to minimize conflicts with landowners in Montana. It plans to cull 600 to 900 of the animals this winter using a combination of hunting and shipments to slaughter.

No bison-to-cattle transmissions of brucellosis have been recorded in the wild, which Wenk said was one gauge of success for a 2000 bison management agreement between federal agencies and Montana officials. Brucellosis was introduced into Yellowstone's bison herds by domestic livestock brought into the region by early settlers.

Ocean Search Finds

2nd Shipwreck

The undersea search for the Malaysian airliner that vanished almost two years ago has found a likely 19th century shipwreck deep in the Indian Ocean off the west Australian coast, officials said Wednesday.

A sonar search for the wreckage of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 found what appeared to be a man-made object on Dec. 19, the Australian Transport Safety Bureau said in a statement.

A follow-up investigation using an underwater drone captured high-resolution sonar images on Jan. 2 that confirmed that the find was a shipwreck, said the bureau, which is running the search for the Boeing 777 which vanished on March 8, 2014.

The Shipwreck Galleries of the Western Australian Museum conducted a preliminary review of the images and advised that the wreck was likely to be a steel or iron ship dating from the turn of the 19th century, the bureau said.

The bureau on Thursday corrected the potential age of the wreck to the middle of the 19th century or later.
