Rick Valelly, Professor of Political Science at Swarthmore: Our Black Swan (Huffington Post)
Political scientists like me have wrestled over and over with how best to explain the Donald Trump phenomenon. It has been a social science gift: something unusual and very unexpected. Something to be analyzed and explained! But the crisis that has emerged has also startled us. Trump is our black swan. No previous presidential candidate in American political history has been a dangerous demagogue, clearly unfit and unprepared for the office.

Mark Morford: "Trump's trolls: Not long for this world" (SF Gate)
Make a note of this moment. Take some kind of karmic snapshot so you remember the exact qualities of the toxic, debilitating rash right now tearing at the skin of the collective soul, for it is unlikely to be repeated anytime soon. And, I think we can all agree, thank sweet goddess for that.

Colin MacCabe: "A Taste of Honey: Northern Accents" (Criterion)
[Rita] Tushingham was to become one of the major stars of British cinema in the sixties, with hits in both The Knack . . . and How to Get It and Doctor Zhivago, but the spiky, vulnerable Jo is undoubtedly her most memorable role.

Jonathan Rosenbaum: "The Immortal Story: Divas and Dandies" (Criterion)
Aside from William Shakespeare, no writer excited Orson Welles's imagination more than Isak Dinesen, the pen name of Karen Blixen-a Danish baroness who wrote mainly in English-especially when it came to the films he wanted to make. Even though she was born thirty years ahead of him, they shared a capacity for standing outside of their own eras.

Hadley Freeman: "Gene Wilder: a comic enigma whose genius shone brightest in collaboration"(The Guardian)
Enduring partnerships with Richard Pryor, Gilda Radner and Mel Brooks show Wilder's gift wasn't just his own mastery, but an ability to coax it from others, too.

Bennett Madison: As a Boy, I Was Obsessed With the Baby-Sitters Club Books. I Have No Regrets.(Slate)
The first time I ever saw a Baby-Sitters Club book, I was 7 years old, browsing the spinning racks at the public library near my house. It was Baby-Sitters Club No. 2: Claudia and the Phantom Phone Calls . On the bright pink cover, a preteen girl in a funky, oversized sweater clutches a baby in one arm while she cradles a telephone under her chin. Claudia looks slightly haunted, but also-to my young eye at the time-competent, collected, and hopelessly cool. I wondered exactly how sinister this phone call was. I wanted to know more.

Trivia Question from Yesterday

Who wrote the theme song for The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson?

       Paul Anka                                                      Source

Paul Anka wrote the theme song, ("Johnny's Theme"), a reworking of his "Toot Sweet"; given lyrics, it was renamed, "It's Really Love" and recorded by Annette Funicello in 1959. Before taking over The Tonight Show, Carson wrote lyrics for the song, thus claimed 50% of the song's performance royalties (though the lyrics were never used). The theme is heard being played on sound recordings of Carson's first Tonight Show and it was used without interruption through to his very last broadcast on May 22, 1992.        Source

Alan J was first and correct with:
   Paul Anka.

Deborah replied:
   "Johnny's Theme" was written by Paul Anka and Johnny Carson. I remember it being jazzy and catchy.
  That's the 2nd Johnny Carson-themed TQ this week. What's the significance?
  Woke up far too early today and predict a nap this afternoon. I'd sleep in but, dammit, work.

Adam answered:
   I thought Doc Sevrinsen wrote it, but Paul Anka and Carson wrote it.

Jim from CA, retired to ID, responded:
   Paul Anka

Marian said:
   Paul Anka and Johnny Carson

Kevin K. in Washington, DC wrote:
   I'm pretty sure it was Paul Anka.

John I from Hawai`i says,
   "Paul Anka."

DJ Useo answered:
   I'm not recalling any information regarding that subject, but I find it really interesting.
  It would be weird if Johnny was the composer. I mean, Weird Al wrote the theme to the Weird Al show.

Points Out The Hypocrisy

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar

Last week, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick started a media firestorm when, prior to a game, he refused to stand during the national anthem. Naturally, there were those who saw it as un-patriotic, a slap in the face to the men and women serving in our military and risking their lives on a daily basis and an attack on the very idea of America as a shining city on a hill.

But there's a counterpoint to that argument. Kaepernick, who is bi-racial, says the reason he refused to stand was to protest black oppression in this country. He became just the latest in a string of professional athletes - including several NBA players such as Carmelo Anthony, Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade, and LeBron James - to speak out on the highly-politicized issues plaguing the black community today.

NBA legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar , a staunch and outspoken Civil Rights proponent throughout his career and beyond, believes we should celebrate Kaepernick and that there is great hypocrisy involved in how the conversation has hinged on a debate about free speech rather than his initial protest about black inequality in America.

Here's what he had to say in a piece he wrote for the Washington Post on Tuesday:

     What should horrify Americans is not Kaepernick's choice to remain seated during the national anthem, but that nearly 50 years after Ali was banned from boxing for his stance and Tommie Smith and John Carlos's raised fists caused public ostracization and numerous death threats, we still need to call attention to the same racial inequities. Failure to fix this problem is what's really un-American here.

Hosting Netflix Show

Bill Nye

Scientist and broadcaster Bill Nye will present "Bill Nye Saves The World," a look at the impact of science on politics, society, and pop culture, says Netflix.

The talk show will launch in Northern Spring 2017, and each episode will be themed around its own topic.

"We'll discuss the complex scientific issues facing us today, with episodes on vaccinations, genetically modified foods and climate change," Nye said as part of a prepared statement. "With the right science and good writing, we'll do our best to enlighten and entertain our audience. And, perhaps we'll change the world a little."

A mechanical engineering graduate from Cornell University, Nye became well known for five seasons of "Bill Nye the Science Guy" which were first broadcast between 1993 and 1998; most recently he voiced a recurring character in animated Disney Junior series "Miles from Tomorrowland."

Judge OKs Return Of Shield

Acoma Pueblo

A federal judge on Wednesday approved a prosecutor's request for U.S. officials to try to recover a Native American ceremonial shield that tribal officials say turned up for sale at a Paris auction house in May after it was stolen in the 1970s from a New Mexico pueblo.

The decision by U.S. District Judge Martha Vasquez approving the warrant that federal officials requested for the shield came a month after the U.S. attorney's office in New Mexico asked for it.

Federal officials had no immediate comment on how they would try to use the judge's order in their effort to obtain the shield and bring it back to the United States. Court documents filed in New Mexico do not say where the shield has been stored since its auction was canceled.

Tribal leaders say the multicolored, circular shield with leather straps was stolen during a 1970s home break-in at Acoma Pueblo, where a centuries-old village sits atop a mesa. A federal investigation supports the claim, authorities have said, making the shield subject to federal civil forfeiture laws.

The shield was one of seven taken from Acoma Pueblo, authorities said in their forfeiture claim filed in July. One was recovered last year in Bozeman, Montana, by Bureau of Indian Affairs agents executing a search warrant.

Ramon Magsaysay Award

Bezwada Wilson

An activist who campaigned to restore the dignity of India's low-caste Dalits was among six winners of Asia's Magsaysay awards on Wednesday.

The Manila-based Ramon Magsaysay Award, named after a Filipino president killed in a plane crash, was established in 1957 to honour people and groups tackling development problems. It is often described as Asia's Nobel Prize.

Bezwada Wilson, 50, founded a grassroots movement to stop "manual scavenging" -- in which Dalits, mostly women and girls, remove by hand human waste from latrines and carry away baskets of excrement on their heads.

Wilson, born to a Dalit family, was honoured for his "moral outrage" and organising skills in his efforts to ban the demeaning work, judges said.

His group has successfully lobbied for laws supporting scavengers and conducted training to move them to better jobs.

Washington State Begins Killing

Wolf Pack

Wildlife agents authorized to eradicate a group of 11 wolves for repeated attacks on cattle in Washington state have hunted down and killed six animals from the condemned pack and are searching for the rest, a state game official said on Monday.

State biologists fatally shot two members of the so-called Profanity Peak wolf pack from a helicopter on Aug. 5 after confirming five fatal wolf attacks on livestock in that area. Further lethal-control efforts were later called off.

But eradication orders were renewed, and expanded to the entire pack, on Aug. 19 when the state Fish and Wildlife Department determined the same group of wolves was behind additional attacks that left two calves dead and a third injured.

Aerial kill teams have since destroyed four more wolves, including a pup, and wildlife agents are looking for the remaining five members of the targeted pack, said Craig Bartlett, a spokesman for the Fish and Wildlife Department.

The Profanity Peak wolves make up one of 19 wolf packs known to inhabit Washington, 15 of them in the eastern third of the state where federal Endangered Species Act protections for gray wolves were lifted in 2011.

Governor Seeking 'Spiritual Guidance'


Republican Gov. Paul LePage said Wednesday he intends to seek "spiritual guidance" in hopes of quieting a controversy he created when he left an obscene message on a Democratic lawmaker's voicemail and then said he wished he could challenge him to a duel and point a gun at him.

As top Democrats continued their calls for LePage's resignation, a fissure has emerged between House and Senate Republicans over whether the self-described straight talker is taking enough responsibility for his remarks and whether legislative action should be ruled out.

The governor also has gotten an earful from top Republicans across the country, including New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.

LePage apologized to the Democratic lawmaker, state Rep. Drew Gattine, and later blamed the media for fueling the fight. He also denied claims by some legislators that his seemingly erratic behavior was caused by addiction or mental health issues.

LePage denied using "racially charged language" and issued no apology for his remarks blaming out-of-state blacks and Hispanics for fueling Maine's heroin epidemic, despite contradictory FBI data. He said he keeps photos of drug dealers arrested in the state in a binder and it shows 90 percent of them "are black and Hispanic people from Waterbury, Connecticut; the Bronx; and Brooklyn."

Rapidly Declining As Poaching Thrives

Africa's Elephants

The number of savanna elephants in Africa is rapidly declining and the animals are in danger of being wiped out as international and domestic ivory trades drive poaching across the continent, according to a study released Wednesday.

Africa's savanna elephant population plummeted by about 30 percent from 2007 to 2014 and is declining at about 8 percent a year, said a survey funded by Microsoft co-founder and philanthropist Paul Allen.

The aerial survey covered 18 countries using dozens of airplanes to fly the equivalent of going to the moon and partway back. The study, known as the Great Elephant Census and involving 90 scientists, estimated a population of 352,271 savanna elephants.

Overall, researchers spotted about 12 carcasses for every 100 live elephants, indicating poaching at a high enough level to cause population decline. But the rates were much higher than that in some countries.

Angola, Mozambique and Tanzania experienced greater population declines than previously known, and elephants face local extinction in parts of the Democratic Republic of Congo, Cameroon and Zambia, the study said. It also says numbers of elephants in South Africa, Uganda and parts of Malawi and Kenya were stable or partly increasing.

3.7 Billion-Years-Old


Scientists have found what they think is the oldest fossil on Earth, a remnant of life from 3.7 billion years ago when Earth's skies were orange and its oceans green.

In a newly melted part of Greenland, Australian scientists found the leftover structure from a community of microbes that lived on an ancient seafloor, according to a study in Wednesday's journal Nature .

The discovery shows life may have formed quicker and easier than once thought, about half a billion years after Earth formed . And that may also give hope for life forming elsewhere, such as Mars, said study co-author Martin VanKranendonk of the University of New South Wales and director of the Australian Center for Astrobiology.

In an outcrop of rocks that used to be covered with ice and snow which melted after an exceptionally warm spring, the Australian team found stromatolites, which are intricately layered microscopic layered structures that are often produced by a community of microbes. The stromatolites were about .4 to 1.6 inches high (1 to 4 centimeters).

Scientists used the layers of ash from volcanoes and tiny zircon with uranium and lead to date this back 3.7 billion years ago, using a standard dating method, VanKranendonk said.

Angry Elves


Iceland has been forced to bow to pressure from elves and uncover a supposedly enchanted elfin rock after highway workers accidentally buried it -- infuriating the mythical creatures, reports said Tuesday.

The angry elves were suspected of causing a series of mishaps after the rock was covered over when workers cleared away the debris from a landslide, the Morgunbladid daily reported.

Construction sites have previously been moved so as not to disturb the creatures and fishermen have refused to go to sea because of their warnings: in Iceland, elves are part of every day life.

The decision was made that the Iceland Road Administration would unearth the rock -- an artefact according to a 2012 law to protect Iceland's elfin heritage -- and it was subsequently cleaned with a pressure washer last week.

Elves are described by the hundreds of people who claim to have seen them as simple, normally peaceful creatures that look like humans -- but smaller.

There's a new giant panda in Madrid, and it's the first female in the history of the Spanish capital's zoo. The zoo said Hua Zui Ba gave birth just before dawn Wednesday to a cub weighing 180 grams. The zoo says the cub is "well formed, very active and has excellent vital signs."
