Jacob Brogan: The One Oscar That Mad Max: Fury Road Deserves Most of All? Costume Design.(Slate)
No one who has seen Mad Max: Fury Road should be surprised by the attention it has received from the Academy, which nominated it for 10 awards. Though Mad Max has a shot at all of them-including best picture-it's entirely possible that it will come up empty. If it does, it may be because its gestalt overshadows the contributions of its various nominees. Fluid and seamless as the film is, its parts sometimes shine more dimly than the whole. But for all that, the film's costumes still stand out.

Key Survival Milestone

California Condors

A captive breeding program that at one time included every living California condor has passed a key milestone in helping North America's largest bird return to the wild.

For the first time in decades, more condors hatched and fledged in the wild last year than adult wild condors died, officials with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said Monday.

Fourteen young condors took flight compared with 12 that died. Officials say it's a small difference but a big step since the last 22 wild condors were captured in the 1980s to start the breeding program that releases offspring into the wild.

In 2011, California condors in the wild for the first time outnumbered condors in captivity since the start of the breeding program. The wild population has since grown to 268 wild condors, with 167 in captivity.

Officials also counted 27 wild condor nests last year. Nineteen were in California, three in the Arizona-Utah border area and five in Mexico's Baja Peninsula. Grand Canyon National Park in Arizona has a condor nest, officials said, as do Zion National Park in Utah and Pinnacles National Park in central California.

Fraud Trial

T-rump

Here's a part of the political calendar that nobody in the Republican Party seems to have noticed: This spring, just as the GOP nomination battle enters its final phase, frontrunner Donald Trump could be forced to take time out for some unwanted personal business: He's due to take the witness stand in a federal courtroom in San Diego, where he is being accused of running a financial fraud.

In court filings last Friday, lawyers for both sides in a long-running civil lawsuit over the now defunct Trump University named Trump on their witness lists. That makes it all but certain that the reality-show star and international businessman will be forced to be grilled under oath over allegations in the lawsuit that he engaged in deceptive trade practices and scammed thousands of students who enrolled in his "university" courses in response to promises he would make them rich in the real estate market.

Although the case has been winding its way through the courts for the past five years - and Trump has denied all wrongdoing - the final pretrial conference is now slated for May 6, according to the latest pleadings in the case. No trial date has been set, but the judge has indicated his interest in moving the case forward, the pleadings show.

Trump's new lead lawyer in the case, Daniel Petrocelli, best known for representing one of the slain murder victims in a civil suit against O.J. Simpson, did not respond to emailed questions about Trump's upcoming testimony, including how long he expects his client to be on the witness stand.

The core case revolves around the operations of a school Trump launched in 2005 with a promotional You Tube video, as well as ads that proclaimed, "I can turn anyone into a successful real estate investor, including you," "Are YOU My Next Apprentice?" and "Learn from my handpicked experts how you can profit from the largest real estate liquidation in history." The plaintiffs, former students at Trump University, allege they were misled into maxing out their credit cards and paying up to $60,000 in fees for seminars in hotel ballrooms and "mentoring" by Trump's "hand-picked" real estate experts. The lawsuit against the school, which is no longer in business, alleges the seminars turned into little more than an "infomercial" and the Trump mentors offered "no practical advice" and "mostly disappeared." New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman filed a separate suit in 2013 alleging fraud on the part of the "university," which was never an accredited institution and awarded no degrees.

British Street Artist Gets It

T-rump

At least according to street art, Donald Trump isn't the most popular figure in Britain at the moment.

Just last month, an unnamed Londoner painted a giant mural of Trump purely so he could hurl eggs at it. Now another street artist has created a painting comparing the Republican candidate to Hitler.

The following artwork was made by a London-based street artist known as Pegasus. He painted it last Thursday on the side of the Hen and Chicken pub in Bristol, UK. Pegasus told Mashable the piece took over five days in total - two to design, two to draw, one to cut and two hours to paint.

"Every hate speech makes him sound more and more like a dictator instead of a presidential candidate," he said. "I wanted to send that message in the most obvious way."

"History often repeats itself," Pegasus added. "People are too often ignorant to the fact or surrender to fear mongering. Hopefully my image, along with thousands of other images created by artists all over the world will give voters the wake up call they need."

$40K Toilet

Cambodia

A luxury commode custom-built for a Thai princess's visit to Cambodia was left unused despite its hefty $40,000 price tag, local officials said Tuesday, in a poor country where the majority of rural dwellers do not have access to a toilet.

The convenience was built for a visit on Monday by Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn to Yeak Lom lake in northeastern Cambodia.

But her two-hour visit ended without her ever having experienced the lavish water closet, community leader Ven Churk told AFP.

The toilet was later "removed" and the adjoining bathroom will now be turned into a security post for tourists visiting the tree-ringed lake, he added.

While the pricey privy has made international headlines it has not received any media attention in Thailand, where a severe lese majeste law punishes any perceived criticism of the royal family with up to 15 years prison.

'Arbitrary' Conviction Of Activist Blogger

Alexei Navalny

The European Court of Human Rights ruled Tuesday that Russia's conviction of opposition leader and blogger Alexei Navalny on charges of embezzlement was "prejudicial", saying he had been deprived of a fair trial.

The Strasbourg-based court said the 2013 conviction of Navalny and co-accused Pyotr Ofitserov, a businessman, was based on an "arbitrary application of the law".

"The trial court convicting the co-accused had worded its judgement in a manner that could only be considered prejudicial as regards (their) alleged involvement in the crime," it said, noting that the courts involved had found them "guilty of acts indistinguishable from regular commercial activities."

The court also ordered Moscow to pay damages of 8,000 euros ($8,800) to Navalny and Ofitserov, and to cover their court expenses.

Navalny, 39, who has repeatedly denounced the corruption of Russian elites, lauded the decision on his blog.

Seeking Investor For Paramount

Viacom

Media-entertainment giant Viacom said Tuesday it was seeking a minority investor for its Paramount studios in Hollywood to adapt to a shifting industry landscape.

Viacom's chairman and chief executive Philippe Dauman said the company had "received indications of interest from potential partners" and that it would explore these options.

Dauman took on the title of chairman earlier this month, replacing 92-year-old Sumner Redstone amid concerns the company was failing to keep pace with its rivals.

Viacom owns the large Paramount studios in Hollywood and cable networks including MTV and Nickelodeon, but its stock has been hit by growth concerns, as well as by the uncertainty surrounding Redstone, who had remained in firm control despite failing health until recently.

Market Struggles

Coal

Vast coal seams dozens of feet thick that lie beneath the rolling hills of the Northern Plains once appeared almost limitless, fueling boasts that domestic reserves were sufficient to power the U.S. for centuries.

But an exhaustive government analysis says that at current prices and mining rates the country's largest coal reserves, located along the Montana-Wyoming border, will be tapped out in just a few decades.

The finding by the U.S. Geological Survey upends conventional wisdom on the lifespan for the nation's top coal-producing region, the Powder River Basin. It also reflects the changing economic realities for companies seeking to profit off extracting the fuel as mining costs rise, coal prices fall and political pressure grows over coal's contribution to climate change.

"You're looking at a forty-year life span, maximum, for Powder River coal," said USGS geologist Jon Haacke, one of the authors of the analysis.

Claims that the U.S. had reserves sufficient to last as long as 250 years came from greatly inflated estimates of how much coal could be mined, Haacke added. They were based on data put out by the U.S. Energy Department last updated comprehensively in the 1990s.

Mysterious High-Pitched Tone

Oregon

An unexplained high-pitched tone has kept residents of a Portland suburb awake at night for at least a week, confounding the best efforts of police and firefighters to pinpoint its source, officials in the community said on Monday.

Adding to the mystery is the fact that the noise, a steady, whistle-like note resembling a flute, has only been reported after dark in Forest Grove, a rustic community of 22,500 located about 25 miles (40 km) west of Oregon's largest city.

Former residents say they remember a similar sound echoing through the night air several decades ago, according to reports filed with Forest Grove Fire and Rescue, an agency spokeswoman said.

The tone is unusual for its combination of high pitch and ambiguous point of origin, said audio engineer Tobin Cooley, president of the company Listen Acoustics, who agreed to informally assess the phenomenon for Reuters on Monday.

"Higher frequencies like this tone are very directional sounds, versus low-frequency sounds which can seem to come from anywhere or everywhere at once," Cooley said, cautioning that he had listened to poor-quality recordings but not made a thorough investigation.
