Andrew Tobias: Extra1 Extra1 Read All about It!
Instead [of repealing Obamacare], here are three major ways to improve Obamacare: 1) Negotiate lower prescription drug prices. It's nuts that under current law, the Federal government must accept whatever price the drug companies set. Trump is supposed to be a good negotiator. 2) Add 2% to the tax on income above $1 million in order to lower deductibles and co-pays for those struggling to get by. 3) Stop attacking it, discouraging people from signing up and insurers from making it work.
Mary Kaye Schilling: "Marti Noxon Isn't Afraid of the 'Ugly Stuff'" (Vulture)
"I'm feeling a little murder-y," says Marti Noxon, which sounds not unlike something you'd hear from the mouth of Buffy Summers, the iconic cheerleader turned Hellmouth avenger. This is not surprising, given Noxon began her writing career on Buffy the Vampire Slayer back in 1997. Come to think of it, when I meet her for breakfast at a hotel in Tribeca, she looks much as I imagine Buffy might, if the character had made it to the age of 52.
Benjamin Lee: "Holly Hunter: 'Sometimes I take a movie that I know is not great'" (Guardian)
We sit and she's offering to serve me tea before talking through why it's so much better in the UK ("All I drink is tea but in a way, we just don't know how to do it") and offering up career-based empathy ("It's got to be a weird job when you have to have to talk about movies that you don't like"). Needless to say, most interviews don't tend to start with such informal warmth.
Eleanora Fagan (April 7, 1915 - July 17, 1959), professionally known as Billie Holiday, was an American jazz musician and singer-songwriter with a career spanning nearly thirty years. Nicknamed "Lady Day" by her friend and music partner Lester Young, Holiday had a seminal influence on jazz music and pop singing. Her vocal style, strongly inspired by jazz instrumentalists, pioneered a new way of manipulating phrasing and tempo. She was known for her vocal delivery and improvisational skills, which made up for her limited range and lack of formal music education. There were other jazz singers with equal talent, but Holiday had a voice that captured the attention of her audience.
Mark. was first and correct with:
Holy cow! I didn't know that one of my favorite singers was born
Eleanora Fagan. She would be Miss Billie Holiday to you.
Billie Holliday. She did some amazing songs, including the controversial Strange Fruit. She nick-named Lester Young. He was Prez to most of his fans after that.

Deborah sadly responded:
In the middle of the night my husband's Schipperke was showing signs of extreme distress, so he took him to UC Davis, where his latest doctor was. He isn't coming home. UCD is paying for the necropsy but meanwhile I'm inconsolable. I can't explain to the other diog what happened. What an awful day this is.

The shadowy hacker collective Anonymous believes that NASA is about to announce that it has discovered alien life of some kind.
"We've looked into these claims and concluded they are, at best, a bone-headed misunderstanding of mundane statements from a NASA official in April, or, at worst, a bold-faced lie playing all of us for clicks.
Either way, it's not worth our time to fully debunk or yours to deeply consider. Simply put, there's no evidence that NASA is about to reveal that it's found aliens.
Anonymous cites out-of-context testimony from Thomas Zurbuchen, the associate administrator of NASA's Science Mission Directorate, given during an April 26 hearing before the House Science, Space and Technology.
A Spanish judge on Monday ordered the remains of artist Salvador Dali to be exhumed to settle a paternity suit, despite opposition from the state-run foundation that manages the artist's estate.
Dali, considered one of the fathers of surrealist art, died in 1989 and is buried in his museum in the northeastern town of Figueres.
Pilar Abel, a tarot-card reader from the nearby city of Girona who was born in 1956, says she is the offspring of an affair between Dali and her mother, Antonia.
At the time of the alleged affair, Dali was married to his muse, Gala, who died seven years before the painter. Gala had a daughter from an earlier marriage but the couple had no children of their own. Upon his death, at age 84, Dali bestowed his estate to the Spanish state.
On Monday, a Madrid court statement said that tests with DNA from Dali's embalmed body were necessary because there were no other existing biological remains with which to make a genetic comparison.
Ocean levels rose 50 percent faster in 2014 than in 1993, with meltwater from the Greenland ice sheet now supplying 25 percent of total sea level increase compared with just five percent 20 years earlier, researchers reported Monday.
The findings add to growing concern among scientists that the global watermark is climbing more rapidly than forecast only a few years ago, with potentially devastating consequences.
Hundreds of millions of people around the world live in low-lying deltas that are vulnerable, especially when rising seas are combined with land sinking due to depleted water tables, or a lack of ground-forming silt held back by dams.
Major coastal cities are also threatened, while some small island states are already laying plans for the day their drowning nations will no longer be livable.
"This result is important because the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)" -- the UN science advisory body -- "makes a very conservative projection of total sea level rise by the end of the century," at 60 to 90 centimetres (24 to 35 inches), said Peter Wadhams, a professor of ocean physics at the University of Oxford who did not take part in the research.
Australia's under-pressure Great Barrier Reef is an asset worth Aus$56 billion (US$42 billion) and as an ecosystem and economic driver is "too big to fail", a study said Monday.
The World Heritage-listed reef is the largest living structure on Earth and its economic and social value was calculated for the first time in the Deloitte Access Economics report commissioned by the Great Barrier Reef Foundation.
Using economic modelling, it said the reef -- bigger than Britain, Switzerland and the Netherlands combined -- was worth Aus$29 billion to tourism, supporting 64,000 jobs.
The "indirect or non-use" value -- people that have not yet visited the reef but know it exists -- was estimated at Aus$24 billion, with recreational users such as boaters making up the rest.
The study, based on six months' analysis, comes as the reef suffers an unprecedented second straight year of coral bleaching due to warming sea temperatures linked to climate change.
A rhino breeder in South Africa is planning an online auction of rhino horn, capitalizing on a court ruling that opened the way to domestic trade despite an international ban that was imposed to curb widespread poaching.
The online sale of rhino horn belonging to breeder John Hume will happen Aug. 21-24 and revenue will be used to "further fund the breeding and protection of rhinos," according to an auction website . Van's, a Pretoria-based auction house, is overseeing the sale and a "physical" auction will occur on Sept. 19, it said.
Rhino breeders believe poaching would be undercut by a regulated trade in rhino horn, though critics say trade will spur poaching that has occurred at record levels in the past decade. Poachers killed 1,054 rhinos in South Africa last year, a 10 percent drop from 2015, according to the government. By some estimates, South Africa has nearly 20,000 rhinos, representing 80 percent of Africa's population. Asia has several rhino species, including two that are critically endangered.
Hume has more than 1,500 rhinos on his ranch and spends more than $170,000 monthly on security for the animals, in addition to veterinary costs, salaries and other expenses, the auction website said.
Hume plans to sell half a ton of rhino horn in the upcoming auction, which is the first of its kind, said Johan van Eyk of the Van's auction house.
Dutch scientists on Monday celebrated the rare discovery of meteorite in The Netherlands, which at 4.5-billion years old may hold clues to the birth of our solar system.
"Meteorites are very special because we do not have rocks of this age on earth," said geologist Leo Kriegsman from the Naturalis biodiversity centre in Leiden in a YouTube video marking the occasion.
The fist-sized meteorite, weighing about 500 grammes (one pound), crashed through the roof of a shed in the small town of Broek in Waterland, just north of Amsterdam, in January probably travelling at the speed of a high-velocity train.
It was discovered the next morning by the residents under a broken pile of wood from the roof, but despite an extensive search, no other fragments have been found in the area.
This is only the sixth meteorite found in the past 200 years in The Netherlands, and the last such find dates back to 1990. So Kriegsman said it was "very exciting" when the home-owners contacted them about their find.
