Eddie Deezen: George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four (Neatorama)
"It was a bright cold day in April, as the clocks were striking thirteen." Thus begins one of the most chilling, haunting, amazing, and many say prophetic, novels ever written.

Arwa Mahdawi: Is the UK or the US more of a disaster at the moment? It's a fair and serious question (The Guardian)
Theresa May is an automaton and Donald Trump could start the third world war with a 3am tweet. But which country is more xenophobic and who hates the poor most?

Lucy Mangan: Dear Teddy Robinson by Joan G Robinson (The Guardian)
Reading them later that night to Emma, I kept stopping in disbelief and saying to Emma: "You know, I had no idea they were funny too!" I remembered them just as collections of stories about Deborah's "nice, big, comfortable teddy bear with light brown fur and kind brown eyes", who goes with her to hospital, on a bus, accidentally stays out all night when Deborah leaves him behind after playing in the garden - the delightfully domestic micro-adventures that both thrill and soothe the very young. But they are hilarious.

Bonnie Malkin: Time magazine asks Trump to remove fake covers from display at golf clubs (The Guardian)
Framed Time cover featuring president and the headline 'The Apprentice is a television smash!' has reportedly been seen hanging at five of Trump's clubs.

The actor, who appeared as Mikael Blomkvist in the Swedish adaptations of the Stieg Larsson novels, has died of lung cancer.

Lucy Mangan on why we need friends as much as family (Stylist)
"At last!" cried my friend when I first dared to wear red lipstick. "You look great, you dick! Let's go out!" "That looks nice," said my mother when she first saw me wearing it. "It makes you look like something you're not." That, in essence, is why it is no surprise to read new research from Michigan State University which has found that friends tend to make people happier than families.

Jonathan Jones: Portraying a Nation: Germany 1919-1933 review - art at its most deliberately obscene (The Guardian)
Thought Liza Minnelli in Cabaret was the peak of Weimar decadence? Think again. A pungent new exhibition reveals a world of chaos, corsets and bloodstained crosses that the Nazis were about to sweep away.

Public Schools To Teach From The Bible


Kentucky has signed a law allowing public, state-funded schools to teach courses on the Bible.

Governor Matt Bevin participated in the bill signing ceremony in the state capitol building which opened with a Christian prayer.

State Representative DJ Johnson said the Bible "really did set the foundation that our founding fathers used to develop documents like the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights," local news station WDRB-TV reported.

The class would be an elective, not a requirement for students and each local school board has the option to offer the class or not.

No other religious texts are included in the bill, which is set to go into effect on 30 June.



Robert Stone, a local doctor and member of Physicians for a National Health Program, oversees a handful of protesters as local concerned citizens gather to protest the current health care bill being considered in the Senate with a "Die-in" at the Monroe County Courthouse in Bloomington, Ind. Monday, June 26, 2017.

Ranch Burned

Johnny Galecki

Johnny Galecki's estate in California was burned to the ground.

On Monday night, a huge fire spread in San Luis Obispo, burning down the ranch owned by the "Big Bang Theory" star, TMZ reported. It was torched along with other properties affected by the 1,200-acre fire. The area has already been secured, but no one is allowed to enter at the moment. The road is also closed.

The estate, located 190 miles from Los Angeles, was Galecki's getaway home. The "Sadako 3D" actor has not seen the property since it burned down. He reportedly plans to visit the site when things are all clear, so he can salvage anything that was spared.

According to the actor, they have already experienced rebuilding in the past, and they will be doing it again together. The process will make their community closer and stronger. "My heart goes out to all in the area who are also experiencing loss from this vicious fire, the threat of which we live with constantly, which may seem crazy to some, but we do so because living in our beautiful, rural area makes it worthwhile," Galecki said of the fire. "It's never the structures that create a community - it's the people. And if the people of Santa Margarita have taught me anything it's that, once the smoke has cleared, literally and figuratively, it's a time to reach out and rebuild."

Galecki also thanked the fire department and the sheriff's office for their prompt response during the fire. "Endless thanks to CalFire and the Sheriff's Office. I know you guys are fighting the good fight to keep us safe. So very relieved no one has been hurt," said the actor.

Majority Of Americans Would Give Up Alcohol


It is no secret giving up alcohol is trying. There is even a whole charity industry - Sober October and Dry January - which has sprung up in recent years to monopolise on people's struggle to relinquish booze.

This makes it all the more significant and telling that increasing numbers of Americans are willing to give up drinking if it means Donald Trump (R-Grifter) was to be impeached.

A new survey has found nearly 73 per cent of Democrats and 17 per cent of Republicans said they would cut out the liquor if the official political process of removing the President were to be put in motion.

The study carried out by surveyed 1,013 men and women across the US.

Unpopular Worldwide


Donald Trump (R-Buffoon) and his policies are broadly unpopular around the world -- with the notable exceptions of Russia and Israel, according to a poll released Monday.

The Pew Research Center survey, which surveyed people in 37 nations, showed a sharp decline in the average trust for America's leader to do the right thing when it comes to international affairs.

Twenty-two percent reported they had faith in Trump to guide America's role in the world, compared with a 64 percent level of confidence in Barack Obama in the final years of his presidency, Pew Research said.

"In the eyes of most people surveyed around the world, the White House's new occupant is arrogant, intolerant and even dangerous," according to a statement released with the poll, which was carried out between Feb. 16 and May 8.



Digby's Hullabaloo


'Internet Taxes'


Donald Trump (R-Crooked) has launched a strange Twitter attack on the Washington Post and Amazon - accusing them of not paying "internet taxes".

Without explaining what he meant by "internet taxes", a form of tariff that does not appear to exist, the President also accused the newspaper of producing fake news.

"The AmazonWashingtonPost, sometimes referred to as the guardian of Amazon, not paying internet taxes (which they should) is FAKE NEWS," he said.

Mr Trump's remarks left many puzzled. The Associated Press said the White House declined to answer questions about the statement.

It said collects state sales taxes in all 45 states with a sales tax and the District of Columbia, according to its website.

Irish Journalist Posts T-rump's Video

Bizarre Moment

An Irish Journalist, Caitriona Perry, posted a video on her Twitter account Tuesday in which Donald Trump (R-Fabulist) can be seen complimenting her smile while talking to Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar over phone. As Perry described it as 'bizarre moment', Twitterati slammed Trump for his behavior.

While talking over the phone, Trump called Perry to his desk, asked her name and said: "She has a nice smile on her face." The 71-year-old president further added, "So I bet she treats you well."

Perry is the U.S. bureau chief of RTE News agency of Ireland. She was in the White House to report on the President's phone call to congratulate Varadkar for becoming the new prime minister.

RTE news website described the meeting as "Trump call! RTE's Caitriona has Presidential moment" and wrote "Correspondent Caitriona Perry did her bit for the special relationship in the Oval Office on Tuesday when Donald Trump introduced her to new Taoiseach Leo Varadkar."

Twitter users, however, did not seem to like Trump's gesture. Perry's tweet was retweeted more than 7,000 times and more than 12,000 Twitter users liked it. Most people criticized the president's actions in the comments.

Bizarre Moment


German Audience Cheers

Christian Democratic Union

The US Commerce Secretary's speech was cut off for going too long and a German audience cheered and applauded the move.

Wilbur Ross was addressing the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) political party conference in Berlin via video when his feed abruptly ended after 20 minutes due to time constraints.

The crowd laughed and cheered at the organiser's decision to cut him off as they waited for German Chancellor Angela Merkel, sitting on stage in front of the video screen, to speak.

"[He] had promised us a 10-minute statement," said Werner Bahlsen of the CDU, adding that Mr Ross spoke "a bit slowly," according to Bloomberg.

Mr Ross parroted Donald Trump's (R-Corrupt) criticism of the German trade surplus with the US, but did agree with Ms Merkel that negotiations on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) trade agreement should begin again.

Ancient 'Skull Cult'


An ancient "skull cult" might've existed thousands of years ago in present-day Turkey.

Three deeply carved skulls found at the Göbekli Tepe archaeological site suggest that humans disfigured the bones as part of a ritual, perhaps to venerate the dead or absorb the powers of fallen enemies, a team of German anthropologists reported this week in a new study.

Skull cults were common during the Neolithic period, which began around 10,000 B.C. Other digs worldwide have uncovered skulls covered in paint or plaster, or bearing intricate designs. In some modern Pacific Island cultures, skulls still represent a link between the living and the dead.

However, the ancient bones from Turkey are unique among the Neolithic skull cults. These are the first from their era to display a crude, practical-looking marking, according to the study published Wednesday in the journal Science Advances.

Unlike the more stylized or beautified skulls found at other sites, "Our skulls are not very nicely done. It doesn't look very decorative," Julia Gresky, the study's lead author and an anthropologist from the German Archaeological Institute (DAI), said by phone from Berlin.



Invading West Coast

Sea Pickles

Mysterious creatures called sea pickles are showing up in large numbers on the West Coast. These organisms are actually conglomerations of zooids-small, multicellular organisms-which come together into tubular shapes that in this case stretch from about 6 inches to 2 feet long, according to EarthFix, an offshoot of Oregon Public Broadcasting.

Normally these animals, also known as pyrosomes, are found in tropical waters, and they also are bioluminescent, meaning they produce light. (Pyrosome is derived from the Greekpyro for "fire" and soma for "body.") Not very well-studied, they can stretch up to 60 feet long, and look something like a living wind sock.

But this spring they began appearing in the eastern Pacific, from Oregon to Alaska, in quantities never before seen-numbers so large that they've led fishermen to abandon fishing in certain areas. One researcher pulled up 60,000 of them in 5 minutes using a net, National Geographic reports.

These bumpy little sea pickles are basically harmless and feed on algae and small particulate matter in the ocean. But scientists worry that they might all die at the same time, which could lead to a mass of decaying organic matter, which would suck oxygen out of the water and perhaps create a dead zone. Indeed, rotting organic matter (specifically plankton and algae) is what causes the Gulf of Mexico dead zone; this algae thrives on nutrient runoff from the Mississippi River.

Scientists are seizing the chance to study the animals, which are normally rare, and hence known to some as the "unicorn of the sea."
