Paul Krugman: Nobody Said That (NY Times)
In the age of unacknowledged error, soul-searching and apologies about faulty predictions are conspicuously missing.


Dave Bry: Algorithms are like invisible judges that decide our fates (Guardian)
Companies now use 'voice analysis' software to determine whether to hire us. And, once we're employed, to predict if we'll stay.


Michael Freedland: "'I'd sooner vote for the devil': the lost art of election heckling" (Guardian)
These days politicians are carefully kept clear of any member of the public who might cause them trouble - which means we're missing a lot. A veteran of 60 years of British elections recalls the greatest heckles and putdowns.


Gavin Haynes: "Neon bible: the woman who shaped the Las Vegas skyline" (Guardian)
Betty Willis, who died last week, created the iconic 1959 sign welcoming visitors to the centre of the gambling universe. Yet much of her work has since been destroyed.

When Michael Booth was told his book about his family's foodie tour of Japan was becoming an anime film and manga comic he headed to Kyoto to see what he looked like as a cartoon ...


Cheryl Eddy: New Little Prince Trailer Has Us Even More Excited To See The Movie (io9)
Back in December, we were surprised to see The Little Prince would be told as a story-within-a-story with contrasting animation styles. Now, the film's second trailer has dropped, giving us an even greater idea of what to expect. We're excited; it looks gorgeous, plus who can resist the golden throat of Jeff Bridges?

Catoptromancy, also known as captromancy or enoptromancy, is divination using a mirror.

In Ancient Rome, the priests who used catoptromancy were called specularii.        Source

Luminous Lois Of Oregon said:
   Ever since the first "looking glasses" were fashioned about six thousand years ago, bitches have been staring into them at every opportunity. Some attempt to cover their narcissism with claims to be divining the future, but we know better, ( although I suspect some guys encouraged medieval broads to gaze into pools of water so to offer a "peek" down their bodice ). Do they have a "fortune telling" app for selfie takers?




Dale of Diamondy Sprungs, Norcali answered:
   A Mirror is the correctly divine answer today. Today is the hell with narcissistic assholes. You know, the kind of assholes that stop at every mirror to gleam and preen themselves. The kind of dickheads and pussymouths that demand constant service, admiration and attention. Yeah, I'm pissie today! But I'd rather be a hammer than a nail, or an anteater feasting on grasshoppers.



  And for Lascivious Lois

Joe S     said:
   Oh my. The answer is so obvious, divination using a cat of course. But on the other hand you can't really "use" a cat, because cats won't be used. You can ask a cat, very politely, to help you out with your divination, and if you are in good graces with the cat it may do it for you. Maybe. Witches use cats for divination all the time, but of course witches have a special relationship with cats that normal, unmagical people don't have. Witches and cats kind of work together on the task, but do not be fooled. The cat's in charge.


  PS If people try to tell you the answer is a crystal ball, don't believe it. That's just obfuscation.

BartCop

Hello Bartcop fans,

As you all know the untimely passing of Terry was unexpected, even by him. We all knew he had cancer but we all thought he had some years left. So some of us who have worked closely with him over the years are scrambling around trying to figure out what to do. My job, among other things, is to establish communications with the Bartcop community and provide email lists and groups for those who might put something together. Those who want to play an active roll in something coming from this, or if you are one of Bart's pillars, should send an email to active@bartcop.com.

Bart's final wish was to pay off the house mortgage for Mrs. Bart who is overwhelmed and so very grateful for the support she has received. Anyone wanting to make a donation can click on this the yellow donate button on bartcop.com

But - I need you all to help keep this going. This note isn't going to directly reach all of Bart's fans. So if you can repost it on blogs and discussion boards so people can sign up then when we figure out what's next we can let more people know. This list is just over 600 but like to get it up to at least 10,000 pretty quick. So here's the signup link for this email list.

More Favor Democrats

American Doctors

American physicians remained more likely to donate to Democrats in the 2014 midterm elections even as voters passed control of Congress to the Republican party, a study finds.

While the percentage of doctors contributing to Republicans has for the most part been declining since the mid-1990s, 55 percent of physician donors backed Democrats in the last election cycle, just as they did in 2012, according to the study published in JAMA Internal Medicine.

"There is this traditional notion out there that if you are a physician, you are a Republican, and we're now seeing that the profession as a whole is on the Democratic side," said senior study author Dr. David Rothman, a researcher at Columbia University's Center on Medicine as a Profession. "We believe it's going to be a long term trend."

The shift in political party allegiance among physicians is probably a byproduct of changes in how medicine is practiced and who is entering the profession, Rothman said. More women are becoming doctors, and more physicians are working for nonprofit healthcare organizations instead of going into private practice, he said.

Membership Sinking

Unions

Labor union membership has sunk across the United States over the past 15 years for most jobs except legal workers, mathematicians and, ironically, management, according to a study published Monday.

The Pew Research Center's new survey said that the number of union members in jobs classified as "management occupations" rose from 438,000 to 562,000 in the 2000-2014 period.

Over the same period, the number of union members in manufacturing jobs fell by nearly half to 1.1 million.

In another once relatively strongly unionized sector -- installation, maintenance and repair occupations -- the number of union members fell from 933,000 to 655,000, according to the study.

Overall union membership sank to 14.6 million people last year, or just 11 percent of the workforce, marking a steady slide since the peak of the labor movement in the 1950s, when nearly 35 percent were in labor unions.

Calms Upset Fans

Stephen Hawking

What is the cosmological effect of singer Zayn Malik leaving the best-selling boy band One Direction and consequently disappointing millions of teenage girls around the world?

The advice of British cosmologist Stephen Hawking to heartbroken fans is to follow theoretical physics, because Malik may well still be a member of the pop group in another universe.

The physicist took a break from speaking about his work as one of the world's leading scientists to answer the question from one upset fan during a talk at Sydney Opera House at the weekend.

"My advice to any heartbroken young girl is to pay attention to the study of theoretical physics because, one day, there may well be proof of multiple universes.

"It would not be beyond the realms of possibility that somewhere outside of our own universe lies another, different universe and, in that universe, Zayn is still in One Direction."

Rising in US

Man-Made Earthquakes

New earthquake hazard maps signal a watershed moment: They show that fracking's byproducts are clearly to blame for swarms of earthquakes plaguing several states.

The maps highlight 17 hotspots where communities face a significantly increased risk of earthquakes, and the accompanying report links the earthquakes to wastewater injection wells. Previous maps did not include earthquakes that are induced by human activities.

The earthquake hotspots include the states of Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas, Ohio, Arkansas, Alabama, Colorado and New Mexico. Until recently, many of these states were some of the places in the United States least likely to have an earthquake. But then, high oil prices brought in companies eager to exploit ancient seabeds where oil and gas mingle with brine.

For instance, in Oklahoma, state records show that companies injected more than 1.1 billion barrels of wastewater into the ground in 2013, the most recent year for which data is available. The following year, Oklahoma had more magnitude-3 earthquakes than California. The quakes clustered around wastewater injection wells.

Oklahoma's current earthquake rate is now 600 times higher than its prefracking rate, which was based on the state's natural seismicity, the state geological survey said Monday.

Very Hot Days

Climate Change

If you find yourself sweating out a day that is monstrously hot, chances are you can blame humanity. A new report links three out of four such days to man's effects on climate.

And as climate change worsens around mid-century, that percentage of extremely hot days being caused by man-made greenhouse gases will push past 95 percent, according to the new study published Monday in the journal Nature Climate Change.

Lead author Erich Fischer, a climate scientist at ETH Zurich, a Swiss university, and colleague Reto Knutti examined just the hottest of hot days, the hottest one-tenth of one percent. Using 25 different computer models. Fischer and Knutti simulated a world without human-caused greenhouse gas emissions and found those hot days happened once every three years.

Then they calculated how many times they happen with the current level of heat-trapping gases and the number increases to four days. So three of the four are human caused, the team said.

And when the scientists dialed up the greenhouse gases - using current pollution trends - to simulate a world about mid-century, they got 26 of those super-hot days, "almost a whole month," Fischer said.

Deadly Prison Mystery

Nevada

This much is certain: Two handcuffed inmates at one of Nevada's toughest prisons brawled in a hallway, and one ended up dead from several shotgun blasts. The other was declared guilty of murder, even though he never touched a gun.

Prison officials acknowledged the death in November with only a short statement, and for months they never mentioned that a weapon was involved or that it had been fired by a trainee guard. Since then, the mystery of the shooting near the showers in a segregation unit at High Desert State Prison has only deepened.

Now attorneys for both inmates are accusing prison guards of instigating the fight to set up a gladiator-style contest and then trying to cover it up by blaming the surviving prisoner.

The first news release, issued on Nov. 13, reported only that Perez had died. The 78-word announcement made no mention of a shooting or of Arevalo.

Prison officials did not publicly disclose that Perez had been fatally shot by a guard until March 25 - more than four months after the slaying and three weeks after a coroner declared the death a homicide caused by gunshot wounds.

Too Much Fluoride In Water

Splotchy Teeth

The government is lowering the recommended amount of fluoride in drinking water because some kids are getting too much, causing white splotches on their teeth.

It's the first change since the government urged cities to add fluoride to water supplies to prevent tooth decay more than 50 years ago. Now, fluoride is put in toothpaste, mouthwash and other products as well.

One study found about 2 out of 5 adolescents had tooth streaking or spottiness. It's primarily a cosmetic issue, said Deputy Surgeon General Boris Lushniak, in announcing the new standard Monday.

Grand Rapids, Michigan, became the world's first city to add fluoride to its drinking water in 1945. Six years later, a study found a dramatic decline in tooth decay among children there, and the U.S. surgeon general endorsed water fluoridation.

Lone Gray Wolf

Oregon

A rare male gray wolf has been detected roaming an Oregon Indian reservation, state fish and game officials said on Monday, days after wildlife managers ordered a review that could lessen state protections for once-decimated populations of the species.

The animal, dubbed OR-25 for its satellite tracking-collar number, was born about two years ago into an Oregon pack but had been living in Washington state until recently, said Michelle Dennehy with the state Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Detected by signals picked up from its radio collar, it is the third lone male identified in central Oregon since 2013, and wildlife officials say at least eight breeding pairs have also whelped pups in the state in recent years.

Gray wolves, native to Oregon but wiped out in the state by an eradication campaign during the early 20th century, first returned in 2008 and have now spread out to multiple parts of the Pacific Northwest state.

While wolves throughout Oregon are protected by state law, they lost their federally protected status in eastern Oregon in 2011 when Congress lifted Endangered Species Act safeguards for various wolf populations in several states. Protections remained in place for any animals in the western two-thirds of the state.

In Memory

Jayne Meadows

Actress and TV personality Jayne Meadows, who often teamed with her husband Steve Allen, has died.

Meadows' son, Bill Allen, says she died Sunday in her home in the Encino area of Los Angeles.

A spokesman said Monday that Meadows was 95 and died of natural causes.

The red-haired Meadows was best known as Allen's wife and the sister of "Honeymooners" star Audrey Meadows. But Jayne Meadows also appeared on Broadway and in movies, won three Emmy nominations for TV acting and was a staple of game shows such as "I've Got a Secret."

She frequently teamed with Allen on his various talk shows. They married in 1954 and were together until his death in 2000.

Welcome!


You have reached the Home page of BartCop Entertainment.

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.
