Trivia Question of the Day

This herbaceous perennial was often referred to by the nickname "pie plant" in many 19th-century cookbooks. What do we call it today?

Trivia Question from Yesterday

What is the only Japanese song to reach number one on the Billboard pop charts in the United States, a position it maintained for three weeks in 1963?

       "Sukiyaki"                                                      Source

Kyu Sakamoto (Sakamoto Kyu, born Hisashi Sakamoto (Sakamoto Hisashi), raised as Hisashi Oshima (Oshima Hisashi), 10 December 1941 - 12 August 1985) was a Japanese singer and actor, best known outside Japan for his international hit song "Ue o Muite Aruko" (known as "Sukiyaki" in English-speaking markets), which was sung in Japanese and sold over 13 million copies. It reached number one in the United States Billboard Hot 100 in June 1963, making Sakamoto the first Asian recording artist to have a number one song on the chart. Sakamoto died on August 12, 1985, in the crash of Japan Airlines Flight 123, the deadliest single-aircraft accident in history.

His most popular song, "Ue o Muite Aruko" ("I look up when I walk") remains the only Japanese song to reach number one on the Billboard pop charts in the United States, a position it maintained for three weeks in 1963. It was also the first ever Japanese language song to enter the UK charts, though it only climbed to number 6 with no further chart entries.        Source

The lyrics tell the story of a man who looks up and whistles while he is walking so that his tears will not fall. The verses of the song describe his memories and feelings. Rokusuke Ei wrote this song while coming back from a protest against the Treaty of Mutual Cooperation and Security between the United States and Japan and feeling dejected about the failure of the protest movement, but the lyrics were rendered purposefully generic so that they might refer to any lost love. The English-language lyrics of the version recorded by A Taste of Honey are not a translation of the original Japanese lyrics, but instead a completely different set of lyrics arranged to the same basic melody.

The title "Sukiyaki", a Japanese hot pot dish, does not appear in the song's lyrics, nor does it have any connection to them; it was used only because it was short, catchy, recognizably Japanese, and more familiar to English speakers. A Newsweek Magazine columnist noted that the re-titling was like issuing "Moon River" in Japan under the title "Beef Stew".        Source

   That's probably Kyu Sakamoto's big hit Sukiyaki.

The Sideshow - by Avedon Carol


Takes Sides


After President-for-now Trump (R-Corrupt) unleashed a verbal tirade on the NFL at a rally in Alabama on Friday, and NFL owners and players responded on Saturday, many wondered how NFL sponsors would respond to the controversy.

On Monday, Nike responded-and took a clear position.

In a statement sent to the media, the company said: "Nike supports athletes and their right to freedom of expression on issues that are of great importance to our society."

It's a short statement, but it speaks volumes. Nike came out in support of the players' right to protest. That's not the same as saying Nike supports the protests themselves, but even supporting the players' right to protest represents a big risk for the brand.

Barred From Entering Canada

Chelsea Manning

Chelsea Manning, a former American soldier jailed for leaking troves of classified information, said on Monday that she was banned from entering Canada due to criminal convictions in the United States.

Manning had tried to cross at the official border office at Lacolle, Quebec, on Friday. On Monday, she posted a letter from Canadian immigration officials to her Twitter account that said she was not admitted because she was convicted of offences deemed equivalent to treason in Canada.

"So, I guess Canada has permanently banned me? Denied entry b/c of convictions similar to "treason" offence," she wrote.

The document said that Manning had committed a crime outside the country that "would equate to an indictable offence, namely treason" in Canada and which carries a maximum sentence of 14 years imprisonment.

Committing a crime elsewhere that would carry a maximum sentence of at least 10 years in Canada is grounds for a person to be denied entry, the document said.

Under Fire

Megyn Kelly

Megyn Kelly's debut episode of "Megyn Kelly Today" is getting slammed online -- for more than one reason.

The former FOX News correspondent welcomed the cast of "Will & Grace" onto her new morning show on Monday morning ahead of the hit NBC sitcom's revival, and a comment that she made while talking to a superfan of the show is garnering Kelly criticism on Twitter.

Kelly brought lawyer Russell Turner onto the stage to meet his idols saying, "Russell didn't know this was going to happen!"

"Is it true that you became a lawyer -- and you became gay! -- because of Will?" she jokingly asked.

"I don't know about the lawyer thing, but I think the 'Will & Grace' thing and the gay thing is going to work out great," she said.

Sphinx, Baboon and Cat Statues Found

Ancient Egypt

After years of being washed, perfumed and fed in ancient Egypt, the statue of a revered Egyptian deity was given a proper burial with other "dead" statues more than 2,000 years ago, a new study finds.

Ancient Egyptians buried the statue of the deity Ptah - the god of craftsmen and sculptors - with other revered statues, including those of a sphinx, baboon, cat, Osiris and Mut, in a pit next to Ptah's temple.

The statue of Ptah had likely sat in the temple for years, but it and the other sacred objects were respectfully buried after they accumulated damage and were declared useless by the ancient Egyptians, the researchers said. [See Photos of the Ptah, Sphnix and Other Statues]

"We can consider that when a new statue was erected in the temple, this one [of Ptah] was set aside in a pit," said study co-researcher Christophe Thiers, director of the French-Egyptian Center for the Study of the Temples of Karnak. "The other artifacts were also previously damaged during their 'lifetime' in the temple, and then they were buried with the Ptah statue."

Archaeologists discovered the pit in December 2014 at Karnak, an Egyptian temple precinct, and spent about a month excavating its rich assemblage. The pit held 38 objects, including:

Revels In Drama Over Spat With NFL


President-for-now Donald Trump (R-Pendejo) is indulging in his favorite kind of drama - personal, aggressive, culturally volatile and entirely of his own making.

During a week in which a crucial Senate health care vote, his tax plan, the North Korean nuclear threat and Puerto Rico's post-hurricane suffering vied for attention, Trump carried his feud with the NFL over players who kneel in protest into the new week with a fresh volley of tweets.

But for some, Trump's argument with professional athletes had everything to do with race.

Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, D-N.Y., called Trump a "racial arsonist" and said he was using the manufactured controversy to pander to his conservative political base.

"He uses race to advance his own ends," Jeffries told CNN.

Newly Released Recordings


Donald Trump (R-Crooked) thinks Ivanka "looks down on me," concedes he has groped Melania in public, knows his compulsive handwashing "could be a psychological problem" and once suggested deploying sleeping gas on planes to deter terrorists, according to a new archive of all the conversations he had on air with The Howard Stern Show.

Those comments, along with various eyebrow-raising but predictable vulgarities, can be found in a new, online archive of Trump's 15 hours of radio banter with the shock jock. In them, he discusses the relative hotness of his wives (and almost every other female celebrity of the moment) and his feelings about his daughter Ivanka, while chortling with Stern's crew as they joked about who was more "gay" and whether getting vomited on was more gross than eating food that had been on someone's anus.

In one September 2004 call, Trump and Stern were bantering about how Ivana was dating a "blue blood" from Bedminster, New Jersey, and joking about how their kids were more blue-blooded than they were. "I think my daughter looks down on me," Trump admitted. "She said, 'Oh my God-'"

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Stern refused to re-air any of his conversations with the Republican nominee. "I feel Donald Trump did the show in an effort to be entertaining and have fun with us, and I feel like it would be a betrayal to any of our guests if I sat there and played them now where people are attacking him," Stern said on his SiriusXM show.

Newsweek exclusively obtained the full audio and transcripts of all 15 hours of Trump talking to Stern, from 1993 to August 25, 2015. Taken together, the Stern interviews are a rich, Freudian case study, a gold mine for anyone trying to understand the president of the United States. The real estate magnate usually called in when he had something to hawk-a book, a prizefight, his TV show-but almost always stayed around to banter with Stern, whose preoccupation with sex and unctuous questioning style led the real estate magnate to free-associate on everything from his parents, children and upbringing to money, enemies, politics and, of course, breasts, enhanced or not.



Activist Convicted For Refusing To Unlock Phone


An activist with a London-based rights group was convicted of a terrorism offence on Monday for refusing to divulge the passwords for his phone and laptop computer to the police.

Muhammad Rabbani, international director at the Cage advocacy group, was stopped for questioning at London's Heathrow airport on November 20, 2016, and arrested after refusing to divulge the passwords.

Cage has campaigned since 2003 on behalf of people who have allegedly suffered abuses in the United States' fight against terrorism.

"It was a case involving the US against an individual who was allegedly tortured over the course of 12 or 13 years in US custody," he said.

"There were around 30,000 (documents) which I was especially uncomfortable handling and I felt an enormous responsibility to try and discharge the trust that was given to me," he said.

Suspending Foreign Visits


Visits by foreigners to the sometimes volatile Himalayan region of Tibet will be suspended until the end of a major Chinese political meeting in Beijing next month, a tour operator said Monday.

A woman who answered the phone at the state-run Tibet International Travel Service in the local capital of Lhasa said no foreigners would be issued special permits to visit until Oct. 29. The Communist Party's national congress, held once every five years, is due to begin Oct. 18 and is expected to run about 10 days.

The woman, who spoke on condition of anonymity because she was not authorized to talk to the media, said she had been told that all rooms at Tibetan hotels where foreigners are permitted to stay had been booked by the government.

China routinely imposes strict security measures around sensitive political dates. Tibet has frequently been closed to tourists during anniversaries of events such as 2008's deadly anti-government riots that broke out in Lhasa and spread through numerous Tibetan regions.

Beijing says Tibet has been Chinese territory for more than seven centuries, but many Tibetans believe they were essentially an independent nation for most of that time. Some complain that Chinese rule and an influx of migrants are eroding Tibet's Buddhist culture and traditional way of life.



Just Outside Rome


The city's symbol is a she-wolf suckling the infant brothers Romulus and Remus, and now wolves have been spotted outside Rome for the first time in more than a century.

The predators were photographed by hidden cameras in startling proximity to the city - roaming a nature reserve just outside the busy three-lane ring road that encircles the Italian capital.

The reserve at Castel di Guido is not far from Leonardo da Vinci international airport - the city's biggest - and is run by LIPU, the Italian League for the Protection of Birds.

Hidden cameras captured a pair of mature cubs drinking from a watering hole and loping through the undergrowth of the protected area.

Biologists believe there are at least two cubs and two adults living in the reserve. The male adult has been nicknamed Romulus by researchers.

A popular artist that just plain pisses you off?
A box set the whole world should own?
