Summer Booty 2017 The Summer Mashup Album

By DJ Useo

I wasn't going to do another Summer Booty collection.

Ten volumes had me quite satis5d (sic) until people started sending me tracks too great to decline.

I had ten incredible tracks received, when I gave in & decided to do another volume.

Now that it's done, I got'ta say, I'm so glad to have it.

If you've heard any of it yet, you know why I'm so happy.

Thanks to all 25 contributors, & especially to Chocomang, AtoZ, DJ Petrushka, & Sgt Mash (U.S.) who all helped so very much.

( But check out the complete playlist. So many excellent bootleggers! )

During the time spent assembling this collection, time & time again circumstances worked hard to prevent it's release, not least of which was my wife's two heart attacks.

Well, she's doing much better now, ( After a terrible scare ) & the album, it's also so much better.

Please to be enjoying!

Trivia Question from Yesterday

This American actress, singer, and songwriter was born Lucille Wood Smith, but when she was an infant, her name was changed to Frances Octavia Smith. Later, after a divorce, she changed her name to promote her singing career. By what name is better known?

       Dale Evans                                                      Source

Dale Evans (born Lucille Wood Smith; October 31, 1912 - February 7, 2001) was an American actress, singer, and songwriter. She was the third wife of singing cowboy Roy Rogers.

Dale Evans was born Lucille Wood Smith on October 31, 1912 in Uvalde, Texas, the daughter of T. Hillman Smith and Bettie Sue Wood. She had a tumultuous early life. Her name was changed to Frances Octavia Smith while she was still an infant. At age 14, she eloped with her first husband, Thomas F. Fox, with whom she had one son, Thomas F. Fox, Jr., when she was 15. A year later, abandoned by the father, she found herself in Memphis, Tennessee, a single parent, pursuing a career in music. She landed a job with local radio stations (WMC and WREC), singing and playing piano. Divorced in 1929, she took the name Dale Evans in the early 1930s to promote her singing career.        Source

Makes Prediction

Stephen Hawking

The Earth is a sinking ship, and we all have to get on spaceship lifeboat and go to another planet if we want to survive, according to physicist Stephen Hawking.

Speaking via Skype in the science and art festival Starmus in Norway this week - a weeklong event about life and the universe that also included Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin and astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson among its speakers - Hawking reiterated his stance that humans need to colonize Mars and set up shop on other planets within the next 100 years or we will all be doomed, according to Vox.

It's just the latest in extreme predictions Hawking has made about the future of Earth and humanity. Last month it was reported that he was working on a documentary for the BBC about how the human species will have to leave Earth and colonize other worlds if we are going to make it.

It could be climate change, a disease epidemic, nuclear war, an enormous asteroid strike or some other catastrophic series of events that could lead to our downfall, but Hawking doesn't see much hope for our future on this planet. One of his recent predictions is that scientists will genetically engineer a virus - making or modifying it on a genetic level - that, while perhaps designed and created with noble medical intentions, will end up accidentally spreading and wiping us all out.

The physicist has long called for colonizing Mars or exploring other locations in space for habitation as a way to escape the dreadful demise of life on Earth as he foresees it.

Gets A Makeover


Ken, the all-American, muscular male with luxuriant hair, is getting a makeover. Barbie's iconic boyfriend is breaking out 15 new looks, including man bun, cornrows and freckles.

Times are changing and doll manufacturer Mattel is playing catch-up as it also battles to boost declining sales.

Ken's makeover was unveiled 18 months after Barbie, the stereotypical blue-eyed blonde bombshell, was given three new body types -- tall, petite and curvy.

Mattel's Next Gen Ken will come in three body types -- "broad", "slim" and "original," seven skin tones, eight hair colors and nine hairstyles, 56 years after the first Ken doll hit the market.

The man doll will also sport "modernized fashions" ranging from casual business attire to athletic wear. Ken dolls were shown on the company website Tuesday dressed in hipster-style checked shirts, denim shorts and skinny jeans.

Stamp Fever

Hong Kong

Enthusiasts in Hong Kong snapped up stamps issued to mark 20 years since the city was handed back to China by Britain Tuesday with a design paying tribute to the Chinese military.

The first stamp, released ahead of the July 1 anniversary, depicts marching troops from China's People's Liberation Army under the title "The Mighty and Civilised Forces".

It comes as the city remains deeply divided between those loyal to Beijing and groups demanding political reform who feel China is threatening Hong Kong's cherished freedoms.

The semi-autonomous city's liberties were guaranteed for 50 years in the handover agreement, but critics say China is trampling the deal with interference in a number of areas, from politics to education and the media.

Collectors said the stamps, which cost HK$10 ($1.28) each and are on sale for three months, were more nationalistic than previous commemorations as they gathered to buy them at Hong Kong's General Post Office.

Inspires 'Breakthrough' Adhesive Patch


The clinging power of octopus tentacles has inspired a breakthrough new adhesive patch that works on wet and oily surfaces with potentially huge medical and industrial uses, according to South Korean researchers.

Octopuses are among the most intelligent and behaviourally diverse of all invertebrates, but it was their extreme strength that attracted the interest of the research team from Sungkyunkwan University.

"Two years ago, we bought an octopus from a Lotte Supermarket, put its suction cups under a microscope and analyzed how they worked," researcher Sangyul Baik told AFP.

The team found the octopus' impressive suction power was thanks to small balls inside the suction cups that line each of their tentacles.

The new "wet-tolerant" adhesive patch has been hailed as a breakthrough by the country's science and technology ministry and there are hopes it will be able to be used for everything from heavy industry to dressing wounds.

Data Firm Exposed Voter Files


A data analytics firm that worked on the Republican campaign of Donald Trump (R-Crooked) exposed personal information belonging to some 198 million Americans, or nearly every eligible registered voter, security researchers said Monday.

Researchers at the consultancy UpGuard said they discovered a "misconfigured database" containing sensitive personal details of the US voter database operated by Deep Root Analytics and used by the Republican National Committee in the 2016 election campaign.

A blog post by UpGuard said the researchers were able to view "names, dates of birth, home addresses, phone numbers, and voter registration details, as well as data described as 'modeled' voter ethnicities and religions."

The information was described as "a treasure trove of political data and modeled preferences used by the Trump campaign," and the discovery offered a rare glimpse into the sophisticated voter targeting efforts used by the Trump camp during the White House race.

The statement added that the data accessed included "proprietary information as well as voter data that is publicly available and readily provided by state government offices."



Dalyan Johnston, 14, (L-R) Lisa Rubio, 51, and Isabel Balboa, 50, pose for a portrait during the Resist March against Donald Trump in West Hollywood, California, U.S., June 11, 2017. Balboa said: "He's not going to change so we're going to change America because he's not going to change us."

Police Implore Author

Forrest Fenn

New Mexico's top law enforcement officer is urging the author and antiquities dealer who inspired thousands to search remote corners of the American West for a hidden chest of gold and jewels to end the treasure hunt.

The plea from State Police Chief Pete Kassetas follows what authorities believe is the latest death related to the effort to uncover Forrest Fenn's treasure.

Colorado pastor Paris Wallace disappeared last week while searching for the bounty in a rugged area along the Rio Grande in northern New Mexico. His family reported him missing, triggering an extensive search.

State Police believe a body recovered Sunday is Wallace's. Medical investigators were working Tuesday to make a positive identification.

Kassetas told reporters that Fenn should retrieve the treasure from wherever he hid it and stop what he called nonsense and insanity.

3-Year Global Event

Coral Bleaching

A mass bleaching of coral reefs worldwide is finally easing after three years, U.S. scientists announced Monday.

About three-quarters of the world's delicate coral reefs were damaged or killed by hot water in what scientists say was the largest coral catastrophe.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced a global bleaching event in May 2014. It was worse than previous global bleaching events in 1998 and 2010.

The forecast damage doesn't look widespread in the Indian Ocean, so the event loses its global scope. Bleaching will still be bad in the Caribbean and Pacific, but it'll be less severe than recent years, said NOAA coral reef watch coordinator C. Mark Eakin.

Places like Australia's Great Barrier Reef, northwest Hawaii, Guam and parts of the Caribbean have been hit with back-to-back-to-back destruction, Eakin said.

So, I don't agree with his choices, I don't agree with anything he does and I really hope that Americans wake up and reelect representatives who really look out for their rights."

Decline Worsens

Atlantic Salmon

Fewer of North America's Atlantic salmon are making it back to rivers to spawn, which bodes poorly for the future of the imperiled fish, an international conservation group says.

Atlantic salmon were once abundant in the rivers of New England and Atlantic Canada, but they are now endangered or have disappeared in parts of both areas. The salmon are born in rivers, swim to the Atlantic and return to their natal river to spawn.

The New Brunswick, Canada-based Atlantic Salmon Federation released a report this month that says total estimated returns of the fish to North America in 2016 was a little more than a half million salmon. That is a 27 percent decrease from the previous year.

The group says young salmon who spent only one winter at sea before returning to the river, called grilse, fared especially poorly last year. They returned at a rate nearly a third lower than 2015, the group said.

Atlantic salmon face a number of challenges in the wild, ranging from the presence of river dams to continued fishing pressure off of Canada and Greenland.

Jose Jimenez" routine that made him one of America's most beloved comic performers of the 1960s - died Thursday at his home in Nashville, Emerson College announced. He is survived by his his wife of 36 years Evelyn (Evy) Shular Dana.

Born William Szathmary in 1924, Bill was the youngest of six children to parents Dena and Joseph (of Hungarian-Jewish descent) and grew in Quincy, Massachusetts.

After graduating from Emerson College on the GI Bill, he entered show business, beginning his career as an NBC page at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, but quickly rose through the ranks when he began writing for comedian Don Adams - penning the famous "Would You Believe?" jokes.

Hired as a writer on the original Tonight Show, Bill eventually became head writer on "The Steve Allen Show", and is also known as the creator of the popular José Jiménez character in 1959 which resulted in his own NBC series, "The Bill Dana Show" (1963-1965).

Bill Dana

[on Richard Nixon] I hated everything he stood for, but I got on his enemies list and it destroyed me. It was terrible. I was on his IRS enemies list. They crucified me. I was sick in bed and they were crawling all over my house with tape measures, looking to see how much of the house I had written off for an office. He is a devil to me. I just despise the thought of Richard Nixon and anyone who had anything to do with him.
