    A man was set on fire in San Francisco’s Mission District Tuesday morning according to the San Francisco Police Department. At about 10 a.m., officials say a female saw smoke walking down the alley of 24th and Osage Street in the city's Mission District when she noticed a man on fire. The female witness ran to a nearby café to get a bucket of water and asked the café to call 911 then ran back to pour water on the victim, police said. "It was absolutely heroic. Absolutely," Lt. Rachel Murphy said. "It is unknown if it was self-inflicted, accidental...

    Red Double BEFORE GIVING THANKS to God for the miraculous Conversion of the Apostle of the Gentiles, the Church assembles us together for the Feast of his favorite Disciple. Timothy—the indefatigable companion of St. Paul—the friend to whom the great Apostle, a few days before shedding his blood for Christ, wrote his last Epistle—comes now to await his master’s arrival at the Crib of the Emmanuel. He there meets John the Beloved Disciple, together with whom he bore the anxieties attendant on the government of the Church of Ephesus; Stephen, too, and the other Martyrs, welcome him for he...

  • San Francisco Supervisors Rename Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples' Day

    01/23/2018 8:53:12 PM PST · by nickcarraway · 6 replies
    San Francisco supervisors Tuesday voted 10-1 to rename Columbus Day as Indigenous Peoples' Day despite a last-minute effort to delay the vote in response to objections from some members of the city's Italian-American community. Supervisor Aaron Peskin, who represents the North Beach neighborhood, where the annual parade on Columbus Day has long since been renamed as the Italian Heritage parade, asked the board to postpone a vote on the resolution after receiving a large number of emails from constituents. "I would like some time to figure out a path forward that works for our indigenous native peoples as well as...
  • Minnesota Public Radio details 'inappropriate behavior' allegations against Garrison Keillor

    01/23/2018 8:51:11 PM PST · by hiho hiho · 5 replies ^ | January 23, 2018
    For weeks, Garrison Keillor's initial belief that he was "fired" from Minnesota Public Radio last November for simply touching "a woman's bare back" hung in the air, tempting his biggest fans with the hope that perhaps the creator of "A Prairie Home Companion" had been wrongly accused. "In the allegations she provided to MPR, she did not allege that Garrison touched her back, but did claim that he engaged in other unwanted sexual touching," MPR president Jon McTaggart said in the letter. He later said that "the woman's attorney presented us with a 12-page letter detailing many of the alleged...

  • Just how out-of-touch are the Oscars? Forget Best Picture; Check out Costume Design. Seriously.

    01/23/2018 8:37:05 PM PST · by dangus · 10 replies
    The fact that there is a type of movie called, "Oscar bait" is pretty damning. It suggests that there is a certain kind of movie that, regardless of how well it's done, is simply the type of movie (or acting performance) that is more likely than others to get nominated for Academy Awards. It's been often noted that over the past fourty years, there's been a complete disconnect between the sort of movies audiences like and the sort of movies the Hollywood pseudo-intelligentsia likes. Have audienes gotten dumber? Has Hollywood simply abandoned hope of box-office success with high-brow films. In...

      “Exactly how curcumin exerts its effects is not certain, but it may be due to its ability to reduce brain inflammation, which has been linked to both Alzheimer’s disease and major depression,” said Dr. Gary Small, director of geriatric psychiatry at UCLA’s Longevity Center and of the geriatric psychiatry division at the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior at UCLA, and the study’s first author. The double-blind, placebo-controlled study involved 40 adults between the ages of 50 and 90 years who had mild memory complaints. Participants were randomly assigned to receive either a placebo or 90 milligrams of curcumin twice...

    It was after his third mental competency test, all of which he passed, that Joseph Tigano started getting desperate. After all, by that point he had spent six years locked inside the Niagara County, N.Y., jail, awaiting trial on a charge of growing pot. It would be another year before the trial began. The wheels of justice are known for turning slowly, but they moved so sluggishly in Mr. Tigano’s case that on Tuesday, the United States Appeals Court for the Second Circuit issued a scathing opinion dismissing his indictment. In the opinion, the court said the case was the...

Ask yourself an honest question, why would a billionaire who has it all, fame, fortune, a warm and loving family, friends, etc. want to endanger himself and his family by becoming POTUS? Why would he want to target himself and those he cares about? Does he need money? Does he need fame? What does he get out of this?

    A wild mustang charging across an open plain is a symbol of the untamed majesty of nature. But the predators chasing these horses are anything but natural. Controversy has broken out over the U.S. Bureau of Land Management's (BLM) practice of using helicopters to herd horses off public lands and sometimes permanently put them into holding facilities in an effort to control their population. "Sometimes these horses get stampeded for miles and miles," said Simone Netherlands, an animal rights activist and a spokesperson for the American Wild Horse Campaign. Now the government is considering culling these animals for the first...

    Despite claims the Kremlin is driving a campaign to disclose an anti-FBI memo, a source says an early in-house analysis concludes the hashtag has been mostly pushed by Americans. The online groundswell urging the release of House Republicans’ attacks on the Federal Bureau of Investigation appears thus far to be organically American—not Russian propaganda, a source familiar with Twitter’s internal analysis told The Daily Beast. #ReleaseTheMemo has been trending widely since late last week. It urges the House intelligence committee to release what its Republican authors claim is a finding of widespread FBI misconduct aimed at surveilling and discrediting Donald...

  • Exclusive: New signs Gates may be negotiating with Mueller's team

    01/23/2018 7:24:15 PM PST · by janetjanet998 · 24 replies
    (CNN) Former Trump campaign aide Rick Gates has quietly added a prominent white-collar attorney, Tom Green, to his defense team, signaling that Gates' approach to his not-guilty plea could be changing behind the scenes. Green, a well-known Washington defense lawyer, was seen at special counsel Robert Mueller's office twice last week. CNN is told by a source familiar with the matter that Green has joined Gates' team. Green isn't listed in the court record as a lawyer in the case and works for a large law firm separate from Gates' primary lawyers.
