Michael Moore: Trump Is Not The Only Grabber Who Must Go (Huffington Post)
The rats are quickly jumping from the sinking ship of Trump. But not so fast, dear Republican senators and congressmen. Trump may have verbalized his misogyny, sexism and abuse of women into an open microphone, but over the past decades you ? YOU ? have LEGALIZED it.

       Captain Beefheart                                                      Source

Don Van Vliet (born Don Glen Vliet; January 15, 1941 - December 17, 2010) was an American singer, songwriter, musician and artist best known by the stage name Captain Beefheart.

   Captain Beefheart

Deborah replied:
   Back from vacation to typical fall weather with a threat of an "atmospheric river" arriving this weekend. Rain, anyone?
  So Don Glen Vliet is better known as Captain Beefheart. He and Frank Zappa made some really far-out music.

John I from Hawai`i says,
   "Captain Beefheart."

Dave in Tucson responded:
   I believe Don Vliet had the non-de-plume of Captain Beefheart

  With Frank Zappa. And contrary to legend the two never had a "gross out" contest.

DJ Useo answered:
   In fact, I'm currently reading "Beefheart : Through The Eyes Of Magic", so I know well the answer is Captain Beefheart.
  I urge you to enjoy his collaboration with Frank Zappa called "Bongo Fury".

Construction Resumes On Pipeline

Standing Rock

The Native American tribe at the center of protests against an oil pipeline in North Dakota reacted angrily Wednesday to the resumption of construction on lands the tribe considers sacred.

The US government has twice asked the operators of the Dakota Access Pipeline to voluntarily pause construction near the tribe's reservation, while authorities reconsider the pipeline's route.

The latest request came Monday, after a weekend appellate court decision refusing to compel Energy Transfer Partners to halt construction within 20 miles (32 kilometers) of the disputed area.

The company resumed construction Tuesday, on what the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe says is land that contains ancient and sacred sites. The tribe also contends that the project threatens its drinking water supply.

"They have bulldozed over the burials of our Lakota and Dakota ancestors and have no regard for the sanctity of these places," Dave Archambault, the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe chairman, said Wednesday.

Top-Earning Dead Celebrity

Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson topped an annual list of the top-earning dead celebrities on Wednesday for the fourth straight year, far outstripping fellow musical icons Prince and David Bowie who passed away earlier this year.

Jackson, who died in 2009, raked in a bumper $825 million in earnings for the 12 months ending Oct. 1, according to estimates from Forbes. That came mostly from the Jackson estate's $750 million sale of the late singer's remaining stake in the Sony/ATV music publishing catalog - which includes the rights to many Beatles songs - to Sony Corp.

Sales of Prince albums soared after the musician died of an accidental drug overdose in April. Forbes ranked him in fifth place overall with estimated earnings of $25 million, just below Elvis Presley with $27 million.

Bowie, whose surprise death of cancer in January came days after a new album release, outsold both Presley and Jackson in albums and singles in 2016, but the British singer's overall estimated earnings were a comparatively small $10.5 million, Forbes said.

Golf legend Arnold Palmer, who died in September at age 87, claimed the No. 3 spot with earnings of $40 million, mostly from licensing and endorsements of his signature Arnold Palmer iced tea and lemonade drink, leisure wear label, and golf course designs.

Rod Stewart Gets A Knighthood

Sir Roderick

Pop singer Rod Stewart can now call himself Sir Roderick.

The London-born singer, whose career includes such hits as "Maggie May," "You Wear It Well" and "Tonight's the Night," was knighted by Prince William at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday for his services to music and charity after more than 50 years in show business.

"It feels wonderful, it really, really does. It's mind-blowing," Stewart, 71, told reporters afterward.

The three-times-married Stewart was accompanied to the ceremony by his wife, Penny Lancaster, and his two youngest children, Aiden and Alastair.

How Canines Evolved


For decades a fossilized carnivore jawbone sat largely unnoticed in a drawer at Chicago's Field Museum.

Now the scientist who grew curious when he opened that drawer has established with a colleague that the fossil belonged to an early, long-extinct relative of dogs, foxes and weasels known as a beardog. The Field Museum fossil and another at the University of Texas each represent a new genus, the taxonomic rank above species.

The researchers believe these beardogs, which lived up to 40 million years ago, may eventually tell the world more about the evolution of dogs and other carnivores and how animals adapt to changes in climate.

According to a paper to be published Wednesday in the journal Royal Society Open Science, the jawbones belonged to two closely related types of Chihuahua-sized beardogs, new genera now named Gustafsonia and Angelarctocyon.

The fossil was discovered in Texas in 1946 and 30 years ago was loosely classified as some type of carnivore. But no one knew where it fit into the carnivore family, said Tomiya, who authored the paper with Jack Tseng of the State University of New York at Buffalo.

Born In Wild

Condor Chick

A California condor chick has hatched in the wild, survived and flown out of its nest at Pinnacles National Park for the first time since the 1890s, officials said Wednesday.

The Santa Cruz Sentinel reports the female bird, born in April, is not the first chick to be born in the park. But it is the first to survive long enough to leave the nest and begin its flight to adulthood.

"She is staying near the nest, doing lot of practice flights," said Rachel Wolstenholme, condor program manager at Pinnacles. "Her parents will help her learn how to fly and where to feed and how to interact with the other wild birds out there."

Scientists say it's a success story for North America's largest bird as it continues a slow but steady path from near extinction.

As of Dec. 31, there were 435 California condors living in zoos and in the wild, an increase of nearly twentyfold over the past 30 years, the newspaper reported.

Religious Rites Trump

Animal Rights

Just as the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur began, a federal judge lifted a temporary restraining order against a California synagogue performing a ritual where chickens are twirled in the air before they're slaughtered.

Judge Andre Birotte Jr. lifted the order Tuesday night. He had granted it last week at the request of an animal rights group called United Poultry Concerns and scheduled a hearing for Thursday. But that would have meant Yom Kippur would be over by the time he ruled, so Birotte moved up the ceremony.

The ritual is typically performed before Yom Kippur, which began Tuesday evening and ends Wednesday evening. It's not clear whether Chabad Irvine would perform it this year at all in spite of the decision.

But the synagogue's attorneys praised the lifting of the order as a victory that safeguards First Amendment rights.

The attorneys for United Poultry Concerns say they will continue with the long-term lawsuit over the practice despite the temporary setback.

Classic Social Panic

Creepy Clown 'Madness'

With a wave of hysteria about sightings of "creepy" or "killer" clowns sweeping the United States and far beyond -- forcing McDonald's to limit the appearances of its mascot Ronald McDonald -- AFP asked experts how the phenomenon could have taken such a grip.

"Everybody is acting as if this is unprecedented, that it has never happened before," said sociologist Dr Robert Bartholomew, author of "The Martians Have Landed: A History of Media-Driven Panics and Hoaxes".

"But exactly the same thing happened in France in 2014 and it was also fuelled by social media, bogus sightings and video hoaxes. Now it's happening in America people are paying attention. But it was quite intense and violent in France" leading to the arrest or jailing of a dozen teenage "killer clowns".

"The clown scare is a classic social panic involving an exaggerated fear about some evil threatening the public," Bartholomew told AFP.

The New Zealand-based academic said while the clown panic may seem like a very modern "outbreak of madness and stupidity", such scares were common long before social media was there to drive them.

Walrus Crowd Emerges

Point Lay

Pacific walruses have started to gather on an Arctic beach in Northwest Alaska, continuing what has become a near-annual ritual for the animals living in a habitat that is losing its summer and fall sea ice.

A crowd of approximately 1,000 walruses had gathered onto a Chukchi Sea beach near the Inupiat village of Point Lay, federal regulators learned Friday.

The big Point Lay gatherings have happened almost every fall since 2007, a year notable for sea-ice retreat. Walruses normally use floating ice as platforms to rest between dives to forage for food, but summer and fall melt in 2007 drove sea ice extent to what was, at the time, a record low.

When there is no floating ice, the animals are forced to go to shore, putting them farther away from the best food sources and at risk of trampling injuries and deaths as they pack tightly onto beaches.

As of Friday, this year's Point Lay gathering was - so far - much smaller than the crowds of tens of thousands of animals that came ashore in past years. The exact crowd size is still unknown and could change, Medeiros said.

Putting Ronald on the Down-Low


McDonald's and its franchisees are giving Ronald McDonald a lower profile until the current clown sightings outbreak eases.

The burger chain's decision Tuesday comes in the wake of scary clown sightings across the country that have led police to respond in many cases. The sightings started in August in South Carolina after unconfirmed reports of clowns trying to lure children into the woods. Scary clown sightings have now been reported in more than two dozen states.

So while Ronald McDonald is a key marketing tool for McDonald's, he is going on the down-low for an undetermined amount of time.

"McDonald's and franchisees in the local markets are mindful of the current climate around clown sightings in communities and as such are being thoughtful in respect to Ronald McDonald's participation in community events for the time being," a McDonald's spokeswoman told Fortune by email.




In Memory

Tommy Ford

Actor Tommy Ford, a regular on the Fox comedy "Martin" and UPN sitcom "The Parkers," was taken off life support an Atlanta hospital Wednesday afternoon, TMZ reports. Ford was on life support after an aneurysm ruptured in his abdomen. He was 52.

A Los Angeles native, Ford's other credits included the Fox 1990s drama "New York Undercover," the 1990 CBS sitcom "Uncle Buck," and NBC's short-lived "Singer & Sons" from the same year.

On "Martin," Ford usually played the straight man to star Martin Lawrence in the sitcom about a radio and TV personality. Ford played the lead character's best friend. He was nominated for an NAACP Image Award in 1996 for his work on "Martin," which ran from 1992-97.

In recent years Ford had been a mainstay as an actor and producer of independent films and telepics geared toward African-American audiences, including 2016's "Blues for Life" and "Love Different," 2015's "Every Family Has Problems," and "Conflict of Interest."

From 2006 to 2008 Ford hosted TV One's comedy competition series "Who's Got Jokes."

In the 1990s and early 2000s Ford logged a slew of guest shots and supporting roles in films. His TV resume ranged from "Law & Order" and "MacGyver" to "Judging Amy" and "House." His film credits included 1989's "Harlem Nights," 1992's "Class Act," and 1997's "Against the Law."
