Trivia Question of the Day


Born Peggy Louise Snyder in Des Moines, Iowa, this TV mom made her debut on Broadway in her teens. By what name is she better known?

                                  



Send your answer to Marty









Trivia Question from Yesterday


Where in the superstate of Oceania is the dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four set?


      Airstrip One                                                      Source


Nineteen Eighty-Four, sometimes published as 1984, is a dystopian novel by English author George Orwell published in 1949. The novel is set in Airstrip One (formerly known as Great Britain), a province of the superstate Oceania in a world of perpetual war, omnipresent government surveillance and public manipulation, dictated by a political system euphemistically named English Socialism (or Ingsoc in the government's invented language, Newspeak) under the control of a privileged Inner Party elite, that persecutes individualism and independent thinking as "thoughtcrimes".        Source






Marian was first, and correct, with:
   Where I am right now...Airstrip One formerly Great Britian. We are in London until Thursday. It was not AOL's fault that I missed yesterday's question. I was sleeping off jet lag.



Alan J wrote:
   Airstrip One, which is Great Britain.



Jim from CA, retired to ID, said:
   Nineteen Eighty-Four is set in Oceania, one of three inter-continental superstates that divided the world after a global war. Most of the plot takes place in London, the "chief city of Airstrip One", the Oceanic province that "had once been called England or Britain



Deborah responded:
   Thanks for the dubious distinction, Marty (and gmail). I could do worse.
  I definitely took off Sunday - I overslept and had barely an hour to eat breakfast and show up for the weekly group ride, and took the rest of the day from which to recover.
  Today's answer is Airstrip 1, if I recall correctly.
  Here's to the start of what I hope is a stellar week and month, y'all. (Lifts coffee cup.) Cheers!




Adam answered:
   Airstrip One.



Soon to be irradiated Dale of Diamond Springs, Norcali replied:
   Airstrip One, formerly Great Britain, specifically in the town of London, Orwell's 1984 takes place. Doublespeak, mind fucking perpetual war (hasn't that been our state since the end of the second world war) and Newspeak are the realities we face today. Power to the Penis!!!! Just because Rand Paul can stop the Patriot Act, do you think our government has stopped spying? After reading 1984 at the age of 14, I was more concerned about Barry Goldwater dropping the 'BIG ONE", than a giant totalitarian state. Fear ruled back then as much as it does today. Lookee at these clowns! I'm meandering all over the fucking place today!


  I go for Anal Invasion #four Mañana. This time I have the pleasure of receiving a 'barium enema'!!!




DJ Useo said:
   Airstrip 1, if I recall correctly. I feel like we live in that book, so I don't enjoy the subject as mere fiction anymore.
  I've read countless "news" articles today on the Patriot Act vote from Sunday night, & it's ramifications.
  The news media did a fine job of obfuscation with their "reporting", which is disgusting.
  However, I do feel confident the "secret spying" will continue much the same.
  I'm surprised no one in the government has declared a "war on privacy".

Critics' Choice Television Awards

Seth MacFarlane

Seth MacFarlane pulled no punches in accepting the Louis XIII Genius Award at the Critics' Choice Television Award, taking aim at "Duck Dynasty," himself and TV critics in his remarks.

"Let's not forget I'm being declared a genius on a network that airs 'Duck Dynasty,' a show whose cast members believe hurricanes are created by gay marriage. I wish I was joking," he said on the live telecast that aired on A&E Network.

He also noted that after getting plenty of rough reviews in his career, getting the genius award from a critics org is akin to dealing with a "remorseful abusive dad. 'I'm sorry about the cigarette burns. Here's $5 because it's Easter.' "

MacFarlane received the Critics' Choice award on the same night that the Fox/National Geographic TV science-oriented docu series that he produced, "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey," was honored in New York with a prestigious Peabody Award.

Spotlight On Rohingya

Matt Dillon

American actor Matt Dillon put a rare star-powered spotlight on Myanmar's long-persecuted Rohingya Muslims, visiting a hot, squalid camp for tens of thousands displaced by violence and a port that has been one of the main launching pads for their exodus by sea.

It was "heartbreaking," he said after meeting a young man with a raw, open leg wound from a road accident and no means to treat it.

Mothers carrying babies with clear signs of malnutrition stood listlessly outside row after row of identical bamboo huts, toddlers playing nearby in the chalky white dust.

"No one should have to live like this, people are really suffering," said Dillon, one of the first celebrities to get a look at what life is like for Rohingya in the western state of Rakhine. "They are being strangled slowly, they have no hope for the future and nowhere to go."

Removes 'Love Locks'

Paris

Paris, known worldwide as the city of romance, began the heart-breaking process Monday of removing hundreds of thousands of "love-locks", padlocks chained to the city's bridges by adoring couples.

Yellow-vested officials were out early Monday morning on the city's iconic Pont des Arts, wielding cutting equipment to free the padlocks while a handful of curious tourists looked on.

What couples see as a harmless act of romance is for city authorities a potentially dangerous headache.

Last year police hurriedly ushered tourists off the Pont des Arts when a section of the footbridge collapsed under the weight of the locks covering the 155-metre-(509-foot-)long bridge.

Fortune-Telling Charges

Pennsylvania

A Pennsylvania woman went on trial on Monday for the rarely prosecuted offense of fortune-telling, accused of persuading a client she could lift a cloud of "spells and curses" in exchange for payments that likely reached thousands of dollars.

April Uwanawich, 38, of Philadelphia faces 55 counts of fortune telling, theft by unlawful taking and theft by deception in the Chester County Court of Common Pleas.

She is accused of approaching Jennifer Gardiner in 2009 at a convenience store, where she identified herself as a fortune teller and said she could rid Gardiner of her "dark cloud," according to a police complaint.

During the following two years, Gardiner met with Uwanawich on a regular basis, "continually paying Uwanawich to work on her life, to rid it of evil and to get rid of spells and curses," the complaint read.

Her financial loss probably ran into "tens of thousands of dollars" but only about $10,000 could be verified, the complaint said.

Family Feud

Robin Williams

Robin Williams' wife and children have resolved differences over how to split up thousands of the late actor's personal items, but they remain at odds over some clothing and money to maintain one of his homes, attorneys said at a court hearing Monday.

Meredith Bushnell, an attorney for Williams' children from previous marriages - Zachary, Zelda and Cody - said about 300 personal items are in dispute after the two sides met with a mediator at a judge's suggestion.

Williams' wife, Susan Williams, would like to keep items such as her husband's slippers, T-shirts and some boxer shorts, her attorney, James Wagstaffe, said after the hearing.

San Francisco Superior Court Judge Andrew Cheng gave the two sides until the end of July to resolve the differences but said he was encouraged by the progress they had made.

The sides also need to resolve the value of a reserve fund to allow Susan Williams to maintain the San Francisco Bay Area home that the actor left to her, Wagstaffe said. The couple shared the home where the actor hanged himself in August, and he left instructions that she receive enough money to keep it up through her lifetime.

Judge Dismisses Case

Vegas

A federal judge in Nevada dismissed a criminal case Monday against a wealthy Malaysian gambler who was arrested last year after FBI agents impersonated Internet repair technicians to get a peek at what he was doing in suites at a Las Vegas Strip resort.

Gone is the allegation that Wei Seng "Paul" Phua headed an illegal bookmaking operation that reaped $13 million after converting high-roller villas into a worldwide sports betting hub during the FIFA World Cup soccer tournament.

Phua, 51, won the return of a $2 million cash bond and the $50 million private aircraft he had surrendered as collateral, and he immediately planned to leave Las Vegas for home, defence attorney David Chesnoff said.

U.S. District Judge Andrew Gordon's decision was not unexpected. Last week, the judge upheld a federal magistrate's earlier recommendation and threw out, as the product of an illegal search, evidence collected by FBI and Nevada Gaming Control Board agents from three exclusive high-roller suites at Caesars Palace.

Defends Australian Cardinal

Vatican't

The Vatican on Monday moved to defend its finance chief George Pell after he was accused by one of Pope Francis' commissioners for child protection of being "almost sociopathic".

Spokesman Federico Lombardi said Peter Saunders, who called for Pell to be dismissed over allegations he covered up abuse and denigrated victims, was expressing his "personal views" and not speaking on behalf of the commission.

Cardinal Pell, formerly the top Catholic cleric in Australia, has replied to all questions posed by the authorities and his defence "must be considered reliable and worthy of attention and respect," Lombardi told journalists.

Pell has become embroiled in the probe in his homeland which last week heard evidence from paedophile priest Gerald Ridsdale, who abused at least 50 boys over two decades.

The cardinal, who accompanied Ridsdale to court in 1993 when he admitted the abuse, has repeatedly denied knowing about any of the offences, helping move the priest to another parish or that he tried to buy a victim's silence.

We Now Know

Stats

The federal government does not keep comprehensive records of how many Americans are killed by police each year. It's an omission that came to light in the media last fall after a string of high-profile police shootings, including the officer-involved death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.

The Washington Post today released its own analysis, shedding further doubt on the government's record-keeping skills when it comes to police killings. According to journalists who analyzed police reports, local news accounts, and interviews detailing each incident, 385 people were shot and killed by police around the country between January and May 2015-an average of more than two deaths a day.

That is double the rate of police shootings counted by the federal government over the past decade. The FBI's Justifiable Homicide Report-which, as its title suggests, only tracks self-reported killings deemed "justifiable"-put the number of police killings at about 400 annually. The Post's analysis, however, shows roughly the same number of deaths in just five months.

The new findings show that about half the victims were white, and an overwhelming majority were men. Eighty percent were armed with potentially fatal weapons like guns, knives, or machetes. But the numbers hardly tell the whole story. A deeper look at the data confirms what many activists have long suspected: Minorities and the mentally ill-the latter group accounting for nearly a quarter of all victims-were killed at disproportionately high rates. Among the unarmed victims, two-thirds were black or Hispanic. And when Post reporters took into account the population of the census tracts where the shootings took place, another startling statistic emerged: Blacks were killed at three times the rate of other groups.

Experts say that tracking police shootings is an essential step toward reducing their occurrence. In the absence of government databases, several grassroots efforts to track the shootings have emerged: the crowdsourced national database Fatal Encounters, a Google doc launched by Deadspin's Kyle Wagner, and the interactive data site Mapping Police Violence.

Strikes Off Northwest Coast

Five Earthquakes

Five earthquakes ranging in magnitude up to 5.9 have struck off the coast of the Pacific Northwest, but they weren't strong enough to generate tsunamis, scientists said.

The earthquakes were shallow, at 6 miles deep, often a signal of a dangerous quake.

It usually takes an earthquake of magnitude 7 or better to trigger a tsunami, said geophysicist Paul Caruso of the U.S. Geological Survey.

The quakes were clustered in an area about 300 miles west of Coos Bay, Oregon, along what's known as the Blanco Fracture Zone.

The first of the five earthquakes came a few minutes before midnight Sunday, Pacific time, at magnitude 5.8. The fifth, at magnitude 5.9, came shortly after 1 p.m. Monday. The weakest was magnitude 4.3.

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.
