  • San Francisco chokes on toxic air as wildfires rage

    11/16/2018 3:25:53 PM PST · by Olog-hai · 58 replies
    Schools and tourist attractions across the San Francisco Bay Area were shut Friday and residents were urged to remain indoors as smoke from California’s deadliest ever wildfire — a three-hour drive away — produced air quality levels worse than in polluted megacities in South Asia. The closures came as the number of people missing from the giant Camp Fire, which has devoured an area roughly the size of Chicago since it broke out last week, soared to more than 600, with 63 confirmed dead. President Donald Trump is set to visit the tinder-dry state on Saturday to meet victims of...

    The Kardashians' hometown of Calabasas was put under mandatory evacuation on Sunday as two wildfires burned near Los Angeles. Kourtney Kardashian's house was pictured covered in flame-retardant chemical Phos-Cheek in the hopes of keeping the blaze at bay, days after Kim's Range Rover was spotted driving away from the same neighborhood loaded up with boxes. Meanwhile Robin Thicke, Gerard Butler and Miley Cyrus all revealed they lost their homes to the blazes, which have killed 31 people across the state. Somehow Lady Gaga's mansion escaped being torched in the Woolsey fire despite being located in badly-hit Malibu, while the flames...

    From Delish Ahead of National Sandwich Day, Oscar Mayer decided to settle a very important debate that's been around for quite some time: they declared hot dogs official members of the sandwich family. That is, they believe hot dogs are sandwiches. Just for funsies (and advertising purposes, but we'll get to that later), they also dropped an official Oscar Mayer "Is a Hot Dog A Sandwich?" hotline this morning, which you can reach at 1-833-SNDWICH. The hotline is toll-free and asks you to give any and all thoughts-whether you agree with the company on their stance or not-on the subject....

    Former CIA Director John Brenna announced his support for Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke, who is battling Sen. Ted Cruz in the Texas Senate race. He wrote: “As a former resident of Texas and a proud UT-Austin alumnus, I believe Beto O’Rourke is the type of individual Texans need in the U.S. Senate to represent their best interests. He has the integrity, intellect, and character that is in short supply in Congress. Vote!” The tweet brought a quick blast from Cruz on Twitter, who responded: “John Brennan — who publicly admitted voting for the Communist Party candidate for president in 1976...

    Barbra Streisand: ‘Doesn’t matter’ if I offend Trump supporters with my music By Chris Mills Rodrigo - 10/31/18 09:24 AM EDT American singer Barbra Streisand said "it doesn’t matter" if her new music offends supporters of President Trump in an interview with New York Times released Tuesday. Streisand discussed her new, politically driven album "Walls," which does not hold back in its criticism. "I would lie awake at night with Trump’s outrages running through my head, and I had to do another album for Columbia Records, so I thought, why not make an album about what’s on my mind?" she...

    New York Times ^ | October 22, 2018 | Sarah Mervosh and Christine Hauser
    L.G.B.T. activists mobilized a fast and fierce campaign that included a protest outside the White House on Monday to say transgender people cannot be expunged from society, in response to an unreleased Trump administration memo that proposes a strict definition of gender based on a person’s genitalia at birth. The existence of the draft memo, the administration’s latest effort to roll back the recognition and protection of transgender people under federal civil rights law, was reported by The New York Times on Sunday morning. Within hours, the hashtag #WontBeErased circulated on social media. By Sunday evening, a rally for transgender...

    Hey there, Democrat Senators Feinstein, Booker, Harris, Blumenthal, et al. Hope you enjoyed your time in the limelight during the Kavanaugh hearings. But sadly, dear Spartacus & Friends, the time has come to pay the bills—at the polls. On Morning Joe—notoriously no fan of things Republican—there was consensus today that the Kavanaugh hearings have provided a "huge bump" for the GOP, while amounting to a "disaster" for the Dems. The comments came after polling maven Steve Kornacki reported that Republicans have moved ahead in four key Senate races: Tennessee, Texas, Nevada, and Arizona. Get the rest of the story and...

    From controlling the media to stoking nationalism, Russian President Vladimir Putin has always known how to keep his approval ratings high. But Russians’ lives are not getting any better – and Mr. Putin’s declining approval rating shows it. His tried-and-true tactic for renewing his popularity – say, annexing territory from a neighbouring country or intervening in a civil war – is not a practical long-term strategy... After Russia invaded Ukraine and annexed Crimea in March 2014 – his approval rating reached a dizzyingly high 87 per cent. When the United States, under President Barack Obama, showed itself to be unwilling...

With the Great Sphinx of Giza and the pyramids visible over her shoulder, first lady Melania Trump expressed support for Brett Kavanaugh, her husband's nominee for the Supreme Court, on the final day of a trip to Africa trip that focused on her advocacy for children. The first lady had stayed largely quiet about the Supreme Court battle that had raged in Washington since Kavanaugh was publicly accused of sexual assault by Christine Blasey Ford last month, but Melania Trump spoke about what the...
