Paul Krugman: Thinking About Brexit, Fast and Slow (NY Times Blog)
The City's smartest people are being forced to admit they were wrong about a 'Brecession'" So says Business Insider, now that good UK PMI surveys have caused Credit Suisse and Morgan Stanley to back off their forecasts of a Brexit-induced recession. But I wasn't wrong. Yay me!


Paul Krugman: Read Me On Twitter! (NY Times Blog)
It has come to my attention that some long-time blog followers aren't aware that I am now Tweeting directly, and that this has to some extent displaced my blogging - especially when it comes to political commentary.


Kevin Drum: Sigh. Yet Another Non-Scandal at the Clinton Foundation (Mother Jones)
Go ahead and read the whole thing. There's really nothing even remotely blurry or scandalous or shady or anything else. It's just the standard way anyone operates who has multiple interests, multiple funding sources, and staffers who do work for multiple organizations. There's no hint that any of the charges were incorrect, or that any of the purchases were misallocated. As near as I can tell, it was all entirely above board, and the GSA was actively involved in scrutinizing everything.


Lindy West: How to tell when a political sex scandal matters - a simple guide (The Guardian)
So your politician did something with his penis. In an age of duelling sympathies - free speech v invasion of privacy, opposing revenge porn v exposing moralistic hypocrisy - it can be difficult to navigate quite how to feel. Should we care?


Jessica Valenti: Phyllis Schlafly won some battles, but she lost the war (The Guardian)
While the conservative crusader helped defeat the ERA, the country has largely embraced the causes she feared most - from working women to LGBT rights.


Arwa Mahdawi: In the great gluten wars, I can't sit on the fence (The Guardian)
Celiac disease is real. 'Gluten intolerance' is probably just your imagination - but may cause involuntary rolling of the eyes and spasms of skepticism in others.


Phoebe-Jane Boyd: If Lena Dunham and Alicia Keys are feminist superheroes, we all are (The Guardian)
The acclaim for acts like not wearing makeup or eating pizza in public (while being female!) is as controlling as the rules they are supposed to undermine. It's an insult to equality.

Trivia Question from Yesterday


Debuting on September 8th, 1966, this TV series was originally pitched to Desilu as "a Wagon Train to the stars". What is the title of this adventure drama?


       Star Trek                                                      Source


Star Trek is an American science fiction entertainment franchise created by Gene Roddenberry and owned by CBS and Paramount Pictures

In early 1964, Roddenberry presented a brief treatment for a proposed Star Trek TV series to Desilu Productions comparing it to Wagon Train, "a Wagon Train to the stars." Desilu worked with Roddenberry to develop the treatment into a script, which was then pitched to NBC.

Star Trek: The Original Series or "TOS" debuted in the United States on NBC on September 8, 1966.        Source

Adds 400 Acres

Yosemite National Park

Officials say Yosemite National Park will add 400 acres of meadows and forest in its largest expansion in 70 years.

The officials said Wednesday the Trust for Public Land, a nonprofit conservation group, bought the land from private owners for $2.3 million and donated it to Yosemite.

Park Superintendent Don Neubacher says the land on the western boundary will be preserved as habitat for protected wildlife.

'Star Trek: Discovery'

Majel Barrett

Majel Barrett played quite a few roles in the Star Trek franchise before her death in 2008. She was Nurse Chapel on the original series, Lwaxana Troi in The Next Generation andDeep Space Nine, and even the second in command in the original Star Trek pilot. But her biggest role in the series was as the voice of the ship's computer in every iteration of the franchise, aka LCARS, the Library Computer Access/Retrieval System. And it turns out Barrett might be coming back with Star Trek: Discovery.

The official Gene Roddenberry account reveals that Barrett's posthumous return to the series is easier than we thought - Majel's voice was recorded phonetically.

The phonetic recording is very, very important. Phenomes are, of course, the components of speech, and most virtual assistants and reconstructed dialogue rely on having them on file. Susan Bennett, the voice of Siri, didn't record that voice for Apple; she did it for a separate project and Apple simply used those phenomes to build the voice iPhone fans know so well.

Granted, it will be fairly strange to hear the voice of someone deceased for nearly a decade coming out of the console when Star Trek: Discovery launches in 2017. But if nothing else, it'll be a nice tribute to Barrett's sometimes forgotten legacy on the show.

WWII Pilot Finally Laid To Rest

Elaine Harmon

After flying military planes during World War II, raising a family, visiting all seven continents and bungee-jumping in New Zealand at 83, Elaine Harmon had one final, seemingly simple wish: to be laid to rest at Arlington National Cemetery.

Harmon got her wish Wednesday, at a funeral with military honors and a flyover, but it took a lobbying campaign by her family and an act of Congress.

In the process, the campaign helped bring to light the long-forgotten exploits of the fearless female pilots known as the WASPs.

Harmon, who died last year at 95, was a member of Women Airforce Service Pilots, who flew military aircraft on support and training missions during World War II so that men were freed up for combat.

The women did not have military status at the time but were retroactively designated veterans in 1977. And for many years, WASPs were eligible to have their ashes placed in urns at Arlington. Last year, though, Army officials concerned about limited space at the cemetery ruled WASPs ineligible for Arlington.

Sudden Departure Messier Than Imagined

Greta Van Susteren

Greta Van Susteren's exit from Fox News came as a bit of a shock, but it seems the most surprised person in the whole situation could be Susteren herself. The long-time Fox News host reportedly expected to leave the network after a few weeks according to CNN Money, but her husband is claiming that the end came a bit more sudden than previously alluded to.

A courier arrived at Van Susteren's Washington, D.C. home at 9 a.m. Tuesday, hand-delivering two letters that said that Van Susteren "was being taken off the air" immediately, according to her husband, John Coale, who is a high-profile Washington lawyer.

Van Susteren was already planning to leave, but she thought she would be hosting her 7 p.m. program "On the Record" for a few more weeks.

Yanking her off the air without a chance to say goodbye was "a bit immature," Coale remarked.

The network announced her departure less than an hour after the courier arrived. Van Susteren was not quoted in the press release.

Foreign Lobbying

Justice Dept.

FBI agents and federal prosecutors disagree over the intent of a foreign lobbying disclosure law, creating confusion within the Justice Department and complicating enforcement, according to a government watchdog report released Wednesday.

The report from the department's inspector general found that prosecutors and agents are at odds on how best to enforce the Foreign Agents Registration Act and on what constitutes a prosecutable case. The 1938 law, known as FARA, requires lobbyists to register if they represent foreign leaders or their political parties, and to disclose details about their work, including how much money they spend and receive.

The law is enforced by a unit within the Justice Department's National Security Division, but few criminal prosecutions are brought and the number of registrations has dropped significantly in the last few decades.

Investigators interviewed for the report said Justice Department prosecutors were slow in reviewing possible cases and reluctant to approve charges, while prosecutors said the primary purpose of the law was to ensure proper registration and public disclosure - and not to pursue criminal charges.

The Associated Press reported last month that a firm run by Donald Trump's campaign chairman Paul Manafort directly orchestrated a covert Washington lobbying operation on behalf of Ukraine's ruling political party. However, Manafort and his deputy, Rick Gates, never disclosed the work under FARA. Manafort and Gates said the registration was not necessary, but Manafort resigned his position with the Trump campaign.

Lifted

Blacklist

Donald Trump's (R-Pendejo) infamous ridiculous media blacklist has come to an end.

Hope Hicks, a spokesperson for the New York businessman's grifter's campaign, confirmed on Wednesday morning that reporters from select media outlets would no longer be barred from covering events.

Trump had prohibited reporters from The Huffington Post, BuzzFeed, Politico, and The Washington Post from covering campaign events.

The "news" was first reported by CNN.

"I figure they can't treat me any worse!" Trump told the cable news outlet of the move.

Violating Native People's Rights

'Conservation'

Some of the world's leading conservation groups are violating the rights of indigenous people by backing projects that oust them from their ancestral homes in the name of environmental preservation, a top UN expert said this week.

UN special rapporteur Victoria Tauli-Corpuz's latest report documents killings, evictions and lands being used for resource extraction without native consent -- practices that affect millions of indigenous people across Asia, Africa and Latin America.

"Projects supported by major conservation organizations continue to displace local peoples from their ancestral homes," said Tauli-Corpuz, who gave a series of talks on her findings at the International Union for Conservation of Nature World Conservation Congress in Honolulu, the globe's largest gathering of conservation leaders.

While she refrained from naming names in her report, she told AFP the groups include the World Wildlife Fund, Conservation International and the Wildlife Conservation Society.

Says No To Camp

Triumph, Idaho

Some residents of the small Idaho community of Triumph near the resort town of Ketchum say they don't want a camp for kids with cancer in their neighborhood, prompting the group planning to build it to reconsider its plans.

Camp Rainbow Gold has previously held its summer camps at a privately owned campsite in the Sawtooth Mountains and organizers announced last month they were working to buy property in Triumph that would serve as a permanent camp location.

But the Idaho Mountain Express reported that residents strongly opposed the plan during a community meeting last week, citing concerns about increased traffic and water and sewage use.

More children with cancer could attend a permanently based camp, Camp Rainbow Gold Executive Director Elizabeth Lizberg said, so the group had planned to apply for a conditional-use permit for the location that is zoned for rural and residential use.

Camp Rainbow Gold became one of the nation's first pediatric oncology camps when it was founded in 1985 by Dave McClusky, a Twin Falls surgeon who was inspired by an 8-year-old cancer patient who wanted to be "normal" and go to camp.

Do you have something to say?
Anything that increased your blood pressure, or, even better, amused or entertained?

Do you have a great album no one's heard?
How about a favorite TV show, movie, book, play, cartoon, or legal amusement?
A popular artist that just plain pisses you off?
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.
