Paul Voosen: Bringing Up Genius (Chronicle)
Before Laszlo Polgár conceived his children, before he even met his wife, he knew he was going to raise geniuses. He'd started to write a book about it. He saw it moves ahead.
Norman Lloyd (born Norman Perlmutter; November 8, 1914) is an American actor, producer, and director with a career in entertainment spanning nine decades. He has worked in every major facet of the industry including radio, theatre, television and film dating back to the Great Depression, and at 101 years of age is the oldest working Hollywood actor of 2015.
When Orson Welles and John Houseman left the Federal Theatre Project to form their own independent repertory theatre company, the Mercury Theatre, Lloyd was invited to become a charter member. He played a memorable role in its first stage production, Caesar (1937), Welles's modern-dress adaptation of Shakespeare's tragedy Julius Caesar - streamlined into an anti-fascist tour de force. In a scene that became the fulcrum of the show, Cinna the Poet (Lloyd) dies at the hands not of a mob but of a secret police force. Lloyd called it "an extraordinary scene [that] gripped the audience in a way that the show stopped for about three minutes. The audience stopped it with applause. It showed the audience what fascism was; rather than an intellectual approach, you saw a physical one."
In the 1980s Lloyd played Dr. Auschlander in the television drama St. Elsewhere over its six-season run (1982-88). Originally scheduled for only four episodes, Lloyd became a regular for the remainder of the series. In addition to Ed Flanders and William Daniels, St. Elsewherei ncluded a roster of relative unknowns, including Ed Begley, Jr., Denzel Washington, Stephen Furst, Eric Laneuville, David Morse and Howie Mandel.

The answer is Norman Lloyd. We thought he was old in "St. Elsewhere", and he
was just in "Trainwreck".
I think we read the same interview- Norman Lloyd
I looked this up - it's Norman Lloyd. I'd probably recognize him if I saw him, but otherwise, I have no idea who he is.
Rain wasn't substantial but the howling north wind that followed it and continues today is unrelenting and brutal. Ugh.
And so another Monday rolls in…

Norman Lloyd, wow…didn't even know that dear old Dr Auslander from St. Elsewhere was still alive. A true anti-Fascist. Oh by the way, Fuck the perpetrators of Religious hatred….and stupidity.

What a sad state of careless, lazy, stupid news people!
I keep hearing various news people--NBC, ABC, etc--say France is awash in red, white, and blue. Idiots! Those are OUR colors. Even a preschooler ought to be aware that France's colors are BLUE, WHITE, and RED (Bleu, Blanc, et Rouge to be more exact). Do they do zero research before opening their mouths and spewing forth their ignorance?
Linda >^..^< We are all only temporarily able bodied.
I think it's a prime example of what happens when better than 90% of the media is held by only 6 corporations - profits über alles
Deregulation and consolidation threw hundreds of thousands out of work and the overseas bureaus were closed, all to boost the bottom line.
Most of today's 'reporters' are kids who are financially able to 'intern' for months, if not years - over-privileged kids, who never have (and never will) need to work for a paycheck.
A few have backgrounds in right-wing propaganda - like Jonathan Karl on ABC and Chuck Todd on NBC, although they're now the 'old-guys'.
Regardless, they all parrot their corporate masters message quite well.
The fairness doctrine is a quaint memory, and lying is not only acceptable, it's the standard of today's media.
So, yeah, careless, lazy, and stupid won.

Singer and actress Barbra Streisand, filmmaker Steven Spielberg and baseball great Willie Mays are among 17 Americans who this year will receive the nation's highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the White House said on Monday.
President Barack Obama will award the medals to a star-studded list of Americans to honor their accomplishments in public service, entertainment and sports during a Nov. 24 ceremony, the White House said.
Gloria Estefan, Grammy Award-winning Cuban-American singer, and her husband Emilio Estefan, a producer and songwriter, will each receive the medal, along with Broadway composer Stephen Sondheim, award-winning conductor Itzhak Perlman, and singer James Taylor, the White House said.
Bonnie Carroll, known for her work with veterans, also will be honored, as will long-serving Democratic Maryland Senator Barbara Mikulski, former Indiana Democratic Congressman Lee Hamilton, NASA mathematician Katherine G. Johnson, and former Environmental Protection Agency head William Ruckelshaus.
Posthumous honors will be given to New York Yankee catcher Yogi Berra, African American trail-blazing Congresswoman Shirley Chisholm, Indian treaty rights advocate Billy Frank, Jr., and Japanese-American civil rights activist Minoru Yasui, the White House said.
The Grammy-winning group will kick off its "DCX MMXVI World Tour" on June 1 in Cincinnati. It wraps up the tour Oct. 10 at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.
The group will visit more than 40 cities, including New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Detroit, Dallas, and Toronto.
The Dixie Chicks are Natalie Maines, Emily Robison and Martie Maguire. Their last album, "Taking the Long Way," was in 2006. It won the Grammy for album of the year. And its hit single, "Not Ready to Make Nice," won song and record of the year Grammys.
Charlie Sheen is set to make a "revealing" personal announcement during a live interview with NBC, the network announced Monday, as celebrity websites reported the US star was HIV-positive.
NBC gave no further details on what the actor, who has long battled drug and alcohol problems, would disclose in the interview to be aired Tuesday morning on the network's "Today" show.
The celebrity website TMZ said Sheen, who was fired in 2011 from the top-rated "Two and a Half Men" set after a much-publicized spat with Warner Bros. over his behavior, was making his HIV status public because several former partners were threatening him with lawsuits.
Access Hollywood, a nightly entertainment program, said on its website that Sheen's former wife Denise Richards, with whom he has two daughters, had long known that he was HIV positive.
Quoting a source close to Richards, it said Sheen contracted the virus after the couple divorced in 2006.
A Utah judge who sparked an outcry when ordered a foster child to be taken from the home of her married lesbian foster parents removed himself from the case on Monday.
Seventh District Juvenile Judge Scott Johansen disqualified himself from the case and referred it to the court's presiding judge, Mary Manley, according to a copy of the court order published online by gay rights organization Equality Utah.
The licensed foster parents, Beckie Peirce and April Hoagland, had cared for the 9-month-old girl since August, but Johansen last week ordered state child welfare workers to remove the baby from the couple's home because of their sexual orientation and find new foster parents within seven days.
He later amended his ruling, dropping the removal order in favor of a hearing to determine what was in the baby's best interest.
The couple, licensed as foster parents earlier this year, are already parents to Peirce's 12- and 14-year-old biological children and said they were planning to adopt their foster child at the request of the girl's biological mother, the Salt Lake Tribune and other news media have reported.
U.S. Roman Catholic bishops, at an annual assembly Monday, gave two standing ovations to the Vatican ambassador behind Pope Francis' controversial meeting with the Kentucky clerk who was jailed for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano received the warm reception as he made his customary address to the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, his first major public appearance since the stir over Kim Davis. Vigano turns 75 in January, the age when bishops are required to submit their resignations to the pope.
In his speech Monday in Baltimore, Vigano didn't mention Davis. He urged the bishops to persevere in working to "preserve a moral order in society" and said they should not "fall prey" to "secularized and increasingly pagan" practices in broader society. He said Catholic colleges and universities, specifically those founded by Jesuits, should do more to shore up Catholic identity at the schools.
The public sessions of the bishops' meeting run through Tuesday, when the conference is expected to vote on a document the bishops issue during every presidential election that aims to provide moral guidance to Catholic voters.
Drew University in New Jersey has rescinded an honorary degree given to Bill Cosby.
The university said in a statement Monday that its board rescinded the degree because of Cosby's admissions in sworn testimony that he engaged in conduct toward women that violates the school's values and standards.
Cosby has never been criminally charged and denied allegations he had sex with women incapacitated by drugs he allegedly provided. In out-of-court testimony released earlier this year, however, Cosby acknowledged using quaaludes during consensual sexual encounters.
Drew gave Cosby the degree in 2002. The board voted to rescind it on Oct. 23, but didn't release that information until Monday after a reporter from NJ.com asked.
A German suspected triple agent charged with treason admitted Monday to spying for the CIA, telling a court he had done so out of dissatisfaction with his secret service job.
"No one trusted me with anything at the Federal Intelligence Service (BND). At the CIA it was different," Markus Reichel told a Munich court at the opening of his trial.
Reichel's case emerged during a furore over revelations of widespread US spying, revealed by former CIA intelligence contractor Edward Snowden, which has also sunk its partner service the BND into an unprecedented crisis.
Besides accusing him of sending "scores of documents and internal information" to the US Central Intelligence Agency, prosecutors said Reichel also provided three documents to the Russian secret service in the country's Munich consulate.
Want to impersonate another person's email account? It's shockingly easy to do, as a new Gmail bug reported by independent security researcher Yan Zhu reveals. Speaking with Motherboard, Zhu explains that all you have to do is to change your display name in your settings on the official Gmail app in a way that will conceal your actual email address.
In this instance, Zhu entered in ""firstname.lastname@example.org" as her display name in Gmail. Note that she used two sets of quotation marks at the start of it - apparently, doing this will cover up your actual email address and make it look like the email you're sending is coming directly from Google's own security team. Obviously this is something that can be used in phishing attacks by people impersonating different entities and organizations that ask you to send them sensitive information.
OK, so Google must be all over this, right? Sadly, no. Zhu informed Google of this bug late last month and they responded by telling her that they don't consider this bug to be a security vulnerability.
This is a puzzling attitude. As Motherboard explains, "it's always been possible to spoof email envelope addresses, but spoofed emails now usually get caught by spam filters or get displayed with a warning in Gmail… with this bug, a hacker can get around these protections." And even if Google doesn't consider this to be a critical security vulnerability, what would be the harm in fixing it?
