Mark Morford: "Coca-Cola asks: How stupid are you, really?" (SF Gate)
It's a pertinent question, sadly: Just how dumb are you, average American? How gullible, how blindly trusting of corporate double-speak, of murky science, the idea that companies famous for making drinks that burn rust off your car really care about your health?

Marion Nestle: Coca-Cola says its drinks don't cause obesity. Science says otherwise (The Guardian)
Soda companies spend generously to convince researchers and health professionals not to worry about health effects from sugary drinks.

Mark Morford: How to defeat Trump, King of the Trolls (SF Gate)
He speaks his mind, such as it is. Says whatever he wants. Jumps the rails of the standard narrative, blasphemes right inside the GOP's own church (Fox News), demeans women and immigrants and science, offhandedly sort of maybe once endorsed single-payer healthcare, snorts, flips off the world, shrugs.

And it was out of juice, so he couldn't just call it. There are all sorts of high-tech "find my phone" options - we love them. (Android , too.) But have you thought of sticking a little piece of adhesive to the back of your phone with your email address? Or with your partner's cell phone number? That way, the party host or cab driver will instantly know whose phone was left behind and have a way to arrange its return. It could help to include the word "REWARD!"

Stuart Heritage: "It's official: if you're middle-aged and not sleeping enough, you're rotting away"(The Guardian)
The government is launching a campaign to warn about the effects of sleep deprivation on people aged between 40-60.

Gwilym Mumford: "Game Of Thrones's Natalie Dormer: men are as objectified as women on TV" (The Guardian)
The actor has joined the debate about objectification in TV and film, saying both genders are judged equally on looks.

Wendy Bradley: Something is rotten in this Hamlet production - and it's not Benedict Cumberbatch (The Guardian)
I'm a Cumberbatch fan and a keen 59-year-old theatregoer who's shelled out a lot of money to see his Hamlet. I don't need to be policed like an unruly schoolkid.

Trivia Question from Yesterday

What is the the longest-running syndicated game show in the United States?

       Wheel Of Fortune                                                      Source

Wheel of Fortune (often known simply as Wheel) is an American television game showcreated by Merv Griffin. The show features a competition in which contestants solve word puzzles, similar to those used in Hangman, to win cash and prizes determined by spinning a giant carnival wheel.

Wheel of Fortune ranks as the longest-running syndicated game show in the United States, with over 6,000 episodes aired. TV Guide named it the "top-rated syndicated series" in a 2008 article, and in 2013, the magazine ranked it at #2 in its list of the 60 greatest game shows ever. The program has also come to gain a worldwide following with sixty international adaptations. The syndicated series' 32nd season premiered on September 15, 2014.        Source

Antenna TV to Air Full 'Tonight Show' Episodes

Johnny Carson

Tribune Media's Antenna TV, the multicast digital channel devoted to vintage television shows, will run full-length episodes of "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" nightly at 11 p.m. ET/8 p.m. PT starting Jan. 1.

Antenna TV has struck a multi-year deal with Carson Entertainment Group to license hundreds of hours of the NBC late-night institution. Antenna will run episodes that aired from 1972 through the end of Carson's 30-year reign in in 1992. Because NBC owns the rights to "The Tonight Show" moniker, Antenna TV's episodes will be billed simply as "Johnny Carson."

"The Tonight Show" ran in a 90-minute format from the start of Carson's run in 1962 until 1980, when it was trimmed to an hour. Antenna will air hourlong episodes on weeknights and 90-minute installments on Saturday and Sunday at 10 p.m. ET/7 p.m. PT.

The scheduling of episodes will be carefully curated to run as themed weeks or months, as well as episodes that coincide with notable anniversaries, holidays and other milestones. Those could include everything from a week's worth of "Tonight Show" debuts by future comedy superstars such as Jerry Seinfeld, Jay Leno, Ellen DeGeneres, Richard Pryor, David Letterman, Jim Carrey and Tim Allen to a month of Christmas episodes in December. Antenna's "Tonight Show" run will begin with the New Year's Day episode from 1982 featuring Eddie Murphy and "MASH" star McLean Stevenson.

Sold To Academy For $10


An agreement approved by a judge will allow the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences to pay $10 to reclaim a 1940s-era Oscar statuette that was auctioned last year without its permission.

The amount is a fraction of the $79,200 paid by a Los Angeles-based auction house for Joseph Wright's Academy Award for colour art direction of the 1942 film "My Gal Sal."

Superior Court Judge Gail Ruderman Feuer approved an agreement between the academy and auction house Nate D. Sanders on Tuesday after more than year of litigation. The academy sued a Rhode Island auction firm that sold the Wright Oscar to Nate D. Sanders in June 2014, arguing its bylaws prevented the sale.

The academy has had a rule since 1951 that Oscar winners and their heirs cannot sell statuettes without first offering it to the organization for $10. The settlement agreement states Nate D. Sanders, which has previously sold Oscar statuettes, was aware of the requirement.

National Register of Historic Places

Ernest Hemingway

An Idaho house where Ernest Hemingway wrote his last works before killing himself in the main entryway in 1961 has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Nature Conservancy owns the two-story, 2,500-square-foot house in the central Idaho resort town of Ketchum and announced the listing Tuesday.

Hemingway experts say the famed author worked on "A Moveable Feast" and "The Dangerous Summer" at the house he owned from April 1959 until his suicide in July 1961 at age 61 when, biographers say, he feared he had lost the ability to write to his standards.

The National Park Service, which manages the National Register, said the Ernest and Mary Hemingway House was listed because of its ability to provide insights about Hemingway. The Nobel Prize winner was drawn to the region for its hunting and fishing, said Paul Lusignan, a historian with the National Register.

Stamp Ceremony

Priscilla Presley

The Elvis Presley "Forever" stamp is going on sale this week at post offices nationwide.

Priscilla Presley, ex-wife of the King of Rock 'n' Roll, joined Postmaster General Megan Brennan at a dedication ceremony Wednesday outside Graceland, Presley's longtime home in Memphis. Another ceremony is planned Thursday at the Elvis Presley Birthplace in Tupelo, Mississippi.

The stamp, a black-and-white image of a youthful Elvis accompanied by his signature in gold ink, is part of the Postal Service's "Music Icons" series. The Postal Service also is exclusively releasing "Elvis Presley Forever," a CD of 18 Presley hits.

Presley was born in Tupelo on Jan. 8, 1935, and moved to Memphis with his parents at age 13. He was 42 when he died on Aug. 16, 1977, in Memphis.

States Warned

Planned Parenthood

The U.S. government has warned states moving to defund women's health group Planned Parenthood that they may be in conflict with federal law, officials said on Wednesday.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, a federal agency, was in contact with officials in Louisiana and Alabama this month, said a spokesperson for the agency's parent, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

The agency warned those two states that their plans to terminate Medicaid provider agreements with Planned Parenthood may illegally restrict beneficiary access to services, the spokesperson said in a statement.

Planned Parenthood has been at the center of a national debate since the anti-abortion group Center for Medical Progress last month began releasing undercover videos showing doctors discussing the sale of fetal body parts.

Federal law requires state Medicaid programs to cover family-planning services and supplies for anyone of child-bearing age. Ending the agreements with Planned Parenthood would limit beneficiaries' access to care and services from qualified providers of their choice, according to HHS.

Charges Filed Against Reporter

Wesley Lowery

A Washington Post reporter arrested last year while covering protests in Ferguson, Missouri, following the police shooting of an unarmed black teenager has been charged with trespassing and interfering with a police officer, the newspaper said on Monday.

Wesley Lowery, 25, was arrested after police asked him and another reporter to leave a McDonald's restaurant being used as a staging area for press coverage of the demonstrations that occurred after the Aug. 9, 2014, shooting of Michael Brown.

The Post said Lowery received a court summons dated on Aug. 6 ordering him to appear in St. Louis County municipal court on Aug. 24 or face the risk of arrest.

"Charging a reporter with trespassing and interfering with a police officer when he was just doing his job is outrageous," the Post's executive editor, Martin Baron, said in a statement.

"You'd have thought law enforcement authorities would have come to their senses about this incident," Baron added. "Wes Lowery should never have been arrested in the first place. That was an abuse of police authority."

Suspected Thief Said Nothing


Philip Johnson was dying of pancreatic cancer when he brought his former wife, Thanh Tran, to the basement of his home in Venice, California. Under a tarp that was weighted down with bricks was a violin case with a combination lock.

He gave the case to Tran. He didn't say a word about it, and she assumed it contained an antique violin that she had once bought for him.

It wasn't until nearly four years later that Tran learned the truth: The case contained a famous Stradivarius that had been stolen from renowned violinist Roman Totenberg in 1980, likely by Johnson, who died in November 2011 at age 58.

Totenberg died the following May, at age 102. The last time he saw the Stradivarius was in 1980 when he left it in his office after a performance at a music school in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

In an interview with The Associated Press on Tuesday, Tran said her biggest regret was that she didn't discover the instrument sooner and return it while Totenberg was still alive.

Intense Wildfire Season


In the Alaska wildfire season of 2004, 6.6 million acres-10,300 square miles-of boreal forest went up in flames. It remains the state's worst year for wildfires in 64 years of record keeping.

On Friday, the 2015 season moved into second place when the area of land burned passed 5 million acres, or roughly 8,000 square miles. With temperatures in the state cooling and rainfall increasing, typical weather for this time of year, 2015 isn't going to break 2004's all-time record, according to experts. But "it is quite significant," said Scott Rupp, a University of Fairbanks forestry professor and an expert in fire ecology. "This year is definitely within a handful of fire years in which we're burning this much acreage, fitting what is setting up to be a consistent trend in the past 25 years."

Between 1950 and 1989, said Rupp, eight Alaska fire seasons surpassed 1 million acres, with only two reaching or surpassing 3 million acres. By contrast, "from 1990 up through and including this year, we've had 11 years where we've burned more than a million acres," he said, "and we've surpassed 3 million [acres] four times, and we came within 50,000 acres in 2009 of being able to say we did that five times."

The extreme wildfire season is another sign of the region's fast-changing climate. Temperatures in the state have risen several degrees above historical norms on average, compared with smaller increases in the lower 48 states as climate change accelerates.

Mysterious Inscription

Medieval Sword

A medieval sword inscribed with a mysterious message is stumping researchers and causing a stir among armchair historians.

The 13th-century weapon was found in the River Witham in Lincolnshire, in the United Kingdom, in 1825. It now belongs to the British Museum, but is currently on loan to the British Library, where it's being displayed as part of an exhibit on the 1215 Magna Carta.

The sword looks fairly ordinary at first glance. Weighing in at 2 lbs., 10 ounces (1.2 kilograms) and measuring 38 inches (964 millimeters) long, the weapon is steel, with a double edge and a hilt shaped like a cross. But on one side of the sword is a mysterious inscription, made by gold wire that has been inlaid into the steel, which reads, "+NDXOXCHWDRGHDXORVI+."

What does this strange group of letters mean? No one knows for sure, according to the British Library, which recently posted information about the weapon on its website, along with a request for readers to help crack the seemingly incomprehensible code.

The River Witham sword was forged in Germany, which was then the blade-making center of Europe, according to the British Museum. And pre-Christian Germanic tribesman inscribed runes onto their swords, axes and armor to "endow the items with magical powers," the Fyris Swords Project researchers wrote in a paper published in the journal Waffen- und Kostümkunde (Weaponry and Costumes) in 2009.

In Memory


Uggie, the Jack Russell terrier who became a canine star for his scene-stealing role in the Oscar-winning movie "The Artist," has died.

Uggie was euthanized Friday after a bout with prostate cancer, his owner, Los Angeles animal trainer Omar Von Muller, said Wednesday. The dog was 13.

In "The Artist," Uggie played the canine companion to Jean Dujardin's fading silent-film star. The movie won Academy Awards for Best Picture, lead actor and director in 2011.

Uggie shared scenes in the film with his brother Dash and another Jack Russell named Dude. Uggie's other credits included the movies "Water for Elephants" and "Mr. Fix It."

He retired in 2012 in a ceremony at the famous Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, where he became the first dog to leave his paw prints in concrete alongside the prints of human stars.

Uggie was a rescue dog, a cause that his owner championed.

Von Muller made it a point to keep Uggie in shape and feeling young with exercise, including using a dog treadmill.

Von Muller announced Uggie's death in Facebook post, saying, "Our beloved boy has passed away."
