    A co-founder of Twitter says he’s sorry if the popular social media platform helped put Donald Trump in the White House, as the president has suggested. In an interview with The New York Times, Evan Williams says Twitter’s role in Trump’s populist rise is “a very bad thing.” The president has credited Twitter with his election to the highest office in the land. When confronted with that notion, Williams said: “If it’s true that he wouldn’t be president if it weren’t for Twitter, then yeah, I’m sorry.” …

    Snips from excerpt only website: His body was found in an extra-large North Face bag, a type which is favoured by explorers because of its 140 litres of storage capacity, durable material, double stitching, twin haul handles and locking zips.  Erotic asphyxiation is defined as the intentional restriction of oxygen to the brain for sexual arousal. There were also rumours that Mr Williams was the victim of a professional ‘hit’. Other theories included the suggestion that he had been murdered by Russian agents.  Tests on his body were ordered to establish whether he was poisoned, as happened when Polonium 210...
  • What the hell was Brian Williams thinking?

    MSNBC’s Brian Williams came under fire Friday for coming up with another broadcast “beauty” during his coverage of the US strike on Syria. Williams – who was famously bounced from his NBC gig for fabricating stories – was apparently mesmerized by the sight of cruise missiles blazing through the night sky. “We see these beautiful pictures at night from the decks of these two UN Navy vessels in the eastern Mediterranean,” Williams told his viewers on “The 11th Hour.” “I am tempted to quote the great Leonard Cohen: ‘I am guided by the beauty of our weapons,’” he added. “They...

    While college administrators and professors accept disgraceful behavior, we as taxpayers, donors and parents should not foot the bill. Let's look at some of that behavior. A University of Washington Tacoma Writing Center press release told students that expecting Americans to use proper grammar perpetuates racism. The University of Nebraska Omaha will host a workshop for "anti-racist allies" to develop "action plans" that confront America's "foundation of systemic oppression" in the context of "the current political climate." The workshop was inspired by professor Tammie Kennedy's recent book, titled "Rhetorics of Whiteness." She will lead a discussion on "taking action against...

    What about inclusiveness in dating? Would academics criticize people who expressed a desire to date only people of their own race? Would they criticize people who openly refused to date someone of the same sex? Would the "inclusiveness and diversity" people condemn or sanction same-race marriages? In other words, what limits would they impose to bring about inclusiveness and diversity?

    LOS ANGELES - A tennis commentator dropped by ESPN for a remark about Venus Williams during the Australian Open has sued the sports network for wrongful termination. Former tennis pro Doug Adler maintains he was describing Williams’ aggressive style last month as “guerrilla” tactics and not comparing her with a “gorilla.” He apologized for his poor word choice but was let go from ESPN mid-tournament.

    The big news for the GOP majority on Capitol Hill last week came as a tweet — and it was not from President Trump. Matt Drudge, the proprietor of The Drudge Report, the conservative website which played a leading role in the rise of the new president, raised eyebrows with this note: “Republican Party should be sued for fraud. No discussion of tax cuts now. Just lots of crazy. Back to basics, guys!”

    We will never understand liberals and progressives until we recognize that they often see reality as a social construct subject to being challenged and changed. For example, throughout the world, boys and girls have different toy preferences. Typically, boys like to play with cars and trucks, whereas girls prefer dolls. Liberals explain this with the assertion that boys and girls are socialized and encouraged to play with different types of toys by their parents, peers and "society." Growing scientific evidence suggests that toy preferences have a biological origin. Even studies of male and female primates find that they exhibit similar...

Television detective series, Bourbon Street Beat and Surfside 6, died Nov. 29 of kidney failure at his home in Scottsdale, Ariz., his wife of 57 years, Vicki, told The Hollywood Reporter.

    Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “The Five,” co-panelists Kimberly Guilfoyle and Juan Williams reacted to the minorities, particularly in the state of Florida, that had voted for President-elect Donald Trump in Tuesday’s election. Guilfoyle noted out Trump had outperformed these voter compared then-GOP presidential nominee former Gov. Mitt Romney (R-MA) in the 2012 presidential, to which Williams suggested it might have something to do with those voters being “not comfortable with a woman as a leader.”

    American tennis player Serena Williams took to Facebook on Tuesday to say she "won't be silent" about race relations and tension with police. Williams, 35, said she had the moment of reflection while riding with her 18-year-old nephew. She wrote that she saw a cop on the side of the road and checked to make sure her nephew was driving at the speed limit, prompting her to think about the case of Philando Castile, who was shot after being pulled over in Minnesota.

    Despite his fall from prominence due to serial lying and removal from the anchor desk of NBC Nightly News, current MSNBC breaking news anchor Brian Williams will be given another chance to rein over a daily news program when, according to CNN’s Brian Stelter, MSNBC awards him a half-hour show at 11:00 p.m. at a date to be determined. Stelter reported late Monday night that Williams's program will be slated to run from Labor Day to Election Day and last for only a half-hour "wrapping up the day's campaign news, the sources said." Of course, this brings to mind Williams’s...

    The prospects for a better future are nearly hopeless for roughly 20 percent of black people — those who reside in big-city crime-infested and dysfunctional neighborhoods. There is virtually nothing that can be done about it without a major rebuilding of the black community from within. Let's examine some of the aspects of the problem and the dismal prognosis, given the status quo. The most important social unit is the family. Many talk about the "breakdown" in the black family when a far more accurate description is that the family doesn't form in the first place. About 73 percent of...
