Reid Wilson: Which of the 11 American nations do you live in? (Washington Post)
Red states and blue states? Flyover country and the coasts? How simplistic. Colin Woodard, a reporter at the Portland Press Herald and author of several books, says North America can be broken neatly into 11 separate nation-states, where dominant cultures explain our voting behaviors and attitudes toward everything from social issues to the role of government.
Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta (born March 28, 1986), better known by her stage name Lady Gaga, is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. She initially performed in theater, appearing in high school plays, and studied at CAP21 through New York University's Tisch School of the Arts before dropping out to pursue a musical career. After leaving a rock band, participating in the Lower East Side'savant garde performance art circuit, and being dropped from a contract with Def Jam Recordings, Gaga worked as a songwriter for Sony/ATV Music Publishing. There, recording artist Akon noticed her vocal abilities and helped her to sign a joint deal with Interscope Records and his own KonLive Distribution.
Randall was first, and correct, with:
My knee-jerk reaction was to say Gwen Stefani...
but I went on ahead and looked it up and it turns out it's
I'm not a bit fan of Lady Gaga - I'm old: still like the Beatles, the Stones, Dylan, etc.
But I tellya what...
a few years ago I was watching the Today Show and Lady Gaga was supposed to perform outside
and it started raining. You could see her band wanted to call it off but Lady Gaga refused.
They played the set and Lady Gaga sang her guts out and put everything she has into her performance.
I was impressed - lesser 'talents' would have just called it off because of the rain.
hats off to you, Lady Gaga.
(I still don't buy her records though)
I'm not as familiar with her work as I should be
But what little I've heard, I've liked. And I love her ballsiness. Lady
Gaga, all that a lady should be and more.
Dale of Hot Diamond Springs, Norcali said:
Lady Gaga is today's answer. I like her singing with Tony Bennet. Can take her or leave her for her Pop canned music. She acts like a fucking Stefani. Could also be the antichrist .
Oh fucking hey-hey-hey, gonna be a hunnert today!
Lunchmeat Lois Of Oregon replied:
Google tells me that is the actual name of The Amazing Lady Gaga, who is the love child of Marilyn Manson and Nicolas Cage. I don't listen to her music, but I respect the fact that she's making it. Sort of. Also, she's not afraid to play with her food, and once dressed like an egg! Now THAT'S art, and a link to yesterday's trivia!
Marty...LOVE the Star Trek memes!
Such a long name for such a petite lady - Lady Gaga, that is.
Finally the refrigerator tech is repairing my 4-yr.old fridge - of course it was an electronic component. *roll eyes*
Five days living out of a cooler has been challenging. I'm ready to be spoiled by my modern convenience again.
Hey, Dale, is it how where you are? 100* at noon. It's gonna be a scorcher!
DJ Useo answered:
I sure am surprised I know the answer is Lady Gaga.
It's because there was a comprehensive thread about her on one of the mashup forums.
I always figured she was "named" after the Queen song 'Radio Gaga'.
Here's 3 fine mashups of her.

When it comes to influencing politics, few billionaires are more effective than the industrialist brothers Charles and David Koch. Americans for Prosperity (AFP), the nonprofit organization they founded and continue to support, achieved a 95 percent success rate in the 2014 election races where it spent money.
But in Alaska, a state that could be pivotal in the 2016 elections, the group's reception has been surprisingly chilly.
Republicans outnumber Democrats by nearly two to one in America's northernmost state, and the GOP candidate has won every presidential contest in the state for the last 50 years. The conservative AFP's message of free markets and limited government, along with its strong support for oil industry interests, resonates here.
But the same independent spirit that defines Alaskans also makes them bristle at attempts by outsiders to shape their thinking, political analysts say, and the Kochs are viewed as outsiders here by many Democrats and Republicans alike.

Have you ever wondered exactly how many changes Lucasfilm made to the original "Star Wars" trilogy during the special editions? Marcelo Zuniga has. From the big changes like Han shooting first and Jabba's palace turning into a music video to tiny changes you probably didn't even register, Zuniga has created a compilation of EVERY change to the original trilogy from 1977 to 2011.
Some scenes have changed multiple times over the years. Sequences that were cut altogether are added back in or stitched together to create a hybrid. Extra shots are added. Exposition is changed. Backgrounds are extended, CGI added, characters revived from the cutting room floor or regulated to the waste bin of yesteryear. It's all here.
If you've got an hour - or 15 minutes here and there - take a journey through the years below!
The Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously to ban the possession of large-capacity gun magazines on Tuesday, following San Francisco to become the second major city in California to take that step.
The ordinance prohibits Los Angeles residents from possessing a handgun or rifle magazine that fits more than 10 rounds.
Residents would have 60 days after the law takes effect to remove, sell or transfer such magazines from city limits in compliance with state law, or surrender them to the LAPD.
The law would take effect 30 days after Mayor Eric Garcetti signs it, a move that he was "eager" to make, he said in a statement.

Protesters began gathering in a riverside park in Portland Tuesday evening, planning to drop kayaks in the water to protest Wednesday's scheduled launch of a ship to be used by Royal Dutch Shell for Arctic oil exploration.
Following the lead of protesters in Seattle who tried to block ships headed for Shell's planned oil exploration in the Chukchi Sea, the Portland "kayaktivists" said they would conduct a vigil overnight on the Willamette River, which runs through downtown Portland.
"Our goal is to basically demonstrate as much community resistance to Shell's plans to drill for oil and secure new oil reserves in the Arctic," said Meredith Cocks, organizer with environmental activist group Portland Rising Tide.
The activists planned to take to the river early Wednesday morning to block passage by the Fennica, an icebreaker ship, on its way out of the area, though those plans were subject to change depending on the ship's schedule, Cocks said.
Scientists and tech experts - including professor Stephen Hawking and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak - warned Tuesday of a global arms race with weapons using artificial intelligence.
In an open letter with hundreds of signatories, the experts argued that if any major military power pushes ahead with development of autonomous weapons, "a global arms race is virtually inevitable, and the endpoint of this technological trajectory is obvious: autonomous weapons will become the Kalashnikovs of tomorrow."
The signatories included leading figures globally in academia and business studying artificial intelligence - the idea that computer systems could replicate tasks normally requiring human intelligence, such as language translation or visual perception. They were joined by philosophers, historians, sociologists and geneticists.
Those signing letter included Elon Musk, Tesla Motors CEO; Demis Hassabis, who founded Google DeepMind; and Noam Chomsky, an emeritus professor at MIT.
Sean O hEigeartaigh, the executive director of Cambridge University's Center for the Study of Existential Risk, said that he is hoping for a discussion on whether autonomous weapons should fall into the same category as chemical weapons and blinding lasers - namely that they be shunned.
Thai worker gives final touch to an ornately-carved bee wax candle depicting scene from the Buddhist mythology in preparation for a candle procession parade to mark the start of the Buddhist Lent, at a temple in the Ubon Ratchathani province, northeastern Thailand, July 28, 2015. The Buddhist Lent or 'Khao Pansa' is a three-month long period beginning on the first day after the full moon of the eight lunar month which this year falls on July 31. Buddhist monks must reside inside their temples to study and meditate. This is also the most auspicious time for Buddhist ordinations since it marks a period of renewed spiritual vigour.

The California lawmker who made it harder for parents to opt out of vaccinating their children, a stance that earned him death threats, is now launching a campaign to save his job, days after the state certified a recall effort against him.
Democratic State Senator Richard Pan, a Sacramento pediatrician who introduced a measure eliminating California's personal beliefs exemption to vaccination requirements for schoolchildren in response to a measles outbreak at Disneyland, plans to go public on Wednesday with a website and social media campaign aimed at fighting off the recall drive, a spokeswoman said.
The successful bill he introduced, which was signed last month by Democratic Governor Jerry Brown, repealed a portion of the health code that had allowed unvaccinated children to attend school if their parents opted out based on their personal beliefs, whether those beliefs were religious or not.
Under the new law, which goes into effect next year, only children with medical reasons to avoid vaccinations may attend school without them. Unvaccinated children would have to be home-schooled or study in small, private home-schooling groups.
Several earthquakes shook Oklahoma on Monday as the state experiences a sharp increase in the frequency of tremors linked to wastewater disposal from gas and oil drilling, including from fracking, state and federal officials said.
Three of Monday's quakes measured above a magnitude 4.0, with a 4.5 earthquake centered just north of Crescent, roughly 45 miles (72 km) north of Oklahoma City, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) said.
The largest tremor, logged a "significant earthquake" by the USGS, could be felt as far away as Wichita, Kansas, about 160 miles north, broadcaster KOTV reported.
The rate of earthquakes in Oklahoma has increased by about 50 percent since 2013, greatly increasing the chance for a damaging quake, according to the USGS.
Noticeable quakes - above magnitude 3.0 - now hit the state at a rate of two per day or more, compared with two or so per year prior to 2009. During the past seven days, Oklahoma has experienced about 40 earthquakes, according to the USGS.

Archaeologists have uncovered human remains of four of the earliest leaders of the English colony that would become America, buried for more than 400 years near the altar of what was America's first Protestant church in Jamestown, Virginia.
The four burial sites were uncovered in the earthen floor of what was Jamestown's historic Anglican church from 1608, a team of scientists and historians announced Tuesday. The site is the same church where Pocahontas famously married Englishman John Rolfe, leading to peace between the Powhatan Indians and colonists at the first permanent English settlement in America.
Beyond the human remains, archaeologists also found artifacts buried with the colonial leaders - including a mysterious Catholic container for holy relics found in the Protestant church.
The Jamestown Rediscovery archaeology team revealed its discovery at the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History. The museum is helping to study and identify those buried in the church. The burials were first uncovered in November 2013, but the scientific team wanted to trace and identify its findings with some certainty before announcing the discovery.
The team identified the remains of the Rev. Robert Hunt, Jamestown's first Anglican minister who was known as a peacemaker between rival leaders; Capt. Gabriel Archer, a nemesis of one-time colony leader John Smith; Sir Ferdinando Wainman, likely the first knight buried in America; and Capt. William West, who died in a fight with the Powhatan Indians. The three other men likely died after brief illnesses. They were buried between 1608 and 1610.
In this Friday, July 10, 2015 photo, a Karner Blue butterfly rests on the finger of Neil Gifford, conservation director at the Albany Pine Bush Preserve Commission, after it was releaseD at the preserve in Albany, N.Y. More than two decades of habitat restoration and breeding programs have put the endangered Karner blue butterfly on track to recovery in the New York pine barrens where it was discovered by Russian author Vladimir Nabokov. The silvery blue, postage stamp-size butterfly is also making a comeback in parts of Ohio and New Hampshire where it was thought to have been wiped out before 2000. Populations have declined but persisted in Wisconsin and Michigan.
