    Following the announcement of casting actor Esai Morales as Deathstroke, DC Universe's live-action Titans has cast Chella Man as Jericho, a hero in his own right and the son of DC's famed mercenary. Though he's not a big name in Hollywood, Man, who self-identifies as deaf, genderqueer and a queer artist, has seen his profile grow both as a deaf activist and as a model. In 2017, the Jewish/Chinese-American actor began to transition from female to male and has quickly become a noted figure in LGBTQ+ circles, documenting his transition on Instagram, YouTube and a series of columns for them....

    The European Union agreed on Tuesday to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2) from new trucks and buses by 30 percent by a 2030 deadline as part of its commitment to cut its output of greenhouse gases. […] The EU currently has no limits on emissions from heavy-duty vehicles, unlike the United States, China, Japan and Canada. Trucks account for almost one quarter of the bloc’s transport-related emissions. […] Curbs on the transport sector, the only one in which emissions are still rising, aim to help the bloc meet its overall goal of reducing greenhouse gases by at least 40...

  • Ancient ring found by TV-inspired metal detector

    12/20/2018 2:52:45 AM PST · by csvset · 28 replies
    A silver medieval ring thought to be up to 600 years old has been unearthed by a man who took up metal detecting after watching a TV sitcom. The gold-gilded ring was found by Gordon Graham in a field in the north of the Isle of Man. Archaeologists believe the piece, which is engraved with geometric shapes, dates from between 1400 and 1500 AD. An inquest hearing at Douglas Courthouse declared the ring can be officially classed as treasure. Allison Fox, a curator of archaeology at Manx National Heritage, said it may date back to the time when the first...

    During the construction of London's massive "super sewer," archaeologists discovered something unusual in the mud: a 500-year-old skeleton of a man still wearing his thigh-high leather boots. The Museum of London Archaeology (MOLA) announced this week that the skeleton was unearthed on the shores of the Thames, near a bend in the river downstream from the Tower of London. "By studying the boots, we've been able to gain a fascinating glimpse into the daily life of a man who lived as many as 500 years ago," said Beth Richardson, a finds specialist who analyzes artifacts at MOLA Headland, a consortium...

    There are often things that inspire us. This is most especially true when you are young and looking for direction. In my case, I was greatly influenced by the books that I read. My favorites were short-length science fiction “pulps”. These were often paperback books that I could shove in the rear pocket of my bluejeans. I would read them, and often reread them. The authors of these stories varied, but my favorites included Ray Bradbury and Robert Heinlein. Here is one such story. This story illustrates that sometimes, it take one person to take a necessary action. Often that...

    Brett Kavanaugh on Monday said he will "not be intimidated into withdrawing" from his Supreme Court nomination after a second woman came forward with a sexual misconduct allegation against him. Kavanaugh sent a letter on Monday to Sens. Chuck Grassley(R-Iowa) and Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) — the chairman and ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, respectively — saying the accusations against him are "smears, pure and simple." "They debase our public discourse. But they are also a threat to any man or woman who wishes to serve our country. Such grotesque and obvious character assassination—if allowed to succeed—will dissuade competent...
  • Flowerboys and the appeal of 'soft masculinity' in South Korea

    09/09/2018 1:12:57 AM PDT · by 2ndDivisionVet · 23 replies
    A man wearing make-up on the street may elicit unwelcome glares, questions about his masculinity and even his sexuality. But in South Korea, ideas about how to look good as a man are changing attitudes and influencing the world, as the BBC's Saira Asher reports. When the BBC posted a video about the make-up routine of a 16-year-old YouTuber in Seoul on Facebook, the reactions ranged from intrigued to downright vitriolic. Some assumed this meant he was gay, while others admonished him for his choice saying "real men don't wear make-up". There were, of course, those that argued for his...

    In preparation for that glorious day in October when the Conciliar Lifetime Achievement Award for Service to the Revolution will be bestowed upon Pope Paul the Pathetic, the Vatican PR machine recently spit out a puff piece extolling his… ahem… heroic virtues. The Roman spin masters are obviously attempting to gin up excitement for the event among the undernourished masses, but in so doing they inadvertently managed to provide the faithful (those with a handful of Catholic brain cells left, that is) with precisely the reason why Montini is deserving of nothing short of the severest condemnation.The headline to the...

    Wednesday, June 20, 2018 04:57PM DURHAM, N.C. (WTVD) -- A 911 call released Wednesday gives more insight into the moments before three people were pulled from a pool at a Durham apartment complex earlier this week. The three people -- 15-year-old Abril Yuliana Flores-Ojeda, 16-year-old Brian Manuel Benites, and 21-year-old Luis Enrique Delgado-Romero -- all died at the hospital. In the call, the caller told dispatchers that a man, who appeared to be in his 20s, had knocked on the door of the apartment where he was staying and said his friend was drowning at the pool. The friend tried...

    And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. (Genesis 2:7)In all of the rest of Creation, the LORD God spoke and it was. Creation by Fiat, The Lord said…”Let there be Trees, fish, beasts, domestic animals, etc.” . But when He made man, The Most High got down in the clay, and formed with his own hands the marvelous body of the first man, Adam. Then he did something completely intimate, something very close to ‘mouth to mouth’ , He breathed...

    A man who held a 39-year-old man at gunpoint in New Orleans and told him to drive to a location was arrested after the driver bailed out the vehicle in front of a Westwego police officer, according to court records. On Wednesday (May 16) around 3 p.m., Elvis Jackson, 31, met the 39-year-old in the parking lot of a Walmart at 4301 Chef Menteur Highway, police said. Once inside the vehicle, Jackson allegedly pulled out a gun, stole $100 from the driver and instructed him to drive to the home of a man named "Bo." The driver began to drive...

  • Man who tried to drown himself in Fairfax, Va. pool is suing the people who pulled him out

    04/30/2018 2:05:37 PM PDT · by BBell · 34 replies
    When he was made assistant manager of a pool in Fairfax, Virginia, two years ago, Mateusz Fijalkowski spoke barely any English and did not know how to swim. In the United States from Poland on a summer program, Fijalkowski spent most of his time here hospitalized after nearly drowning in that pool. Now Fijalkowski, 23, is suing the police officers and lifeguard who pulled him out. Often police are sued for being too aggressive with mentally ill people; in this instance, they are accused of not doing enough to stop a man in the midst of a bipolar episode. Fijalkowski...

    The Northwest Inlander ^ | 3/8/18 | Mitch Ryals (as told by his bun)
    We're standing in line for coffee when out of nowhere, I get honked. The lady behind us reached up, wrapped me up in her grubby paw and squeezed. "Your man bun is so soft," she says to the man to whose head I'm affixed with a black elastic hair tie. "I've never touched one before." An innocent compliment to most, but to me this violent assault is just another example of the indignities of my existence. I'm just a bun, after all. I didn't choose to be tied to a man. Women gawk and stare. Sometimes they'll shout: "Nice man...

    Rewriting English to excise the word “man” is not about inclusion or de-sexing what science has dubbed homo sapiens. It’s about excluding and erasing God from the vernacular and, in effect, society. Removing “man” from language can’t change Creation There is a growing contingent of overzealous cultural reformers who believe that excising the word “man” from the English language will instantly do away with inequality on every level of existence. As one friend once put it, “What form of reality are they living in?” The meaning is apparent when individuals decide ‘reality’ is based on their feelings. (And this is...

    Here’s a bit of trivia about me: My great-great-grandmother on my dad’s side was a full-blooded Mexicana. For whatever reason, this trace of Mexican blood manifested itself quite strongly in me – more so than in my other family members – and I credit my swarthy skin, thick black mane, and Pancho Villa-like mustache to this lineage.To celebrate our family’s Mexican heritage, on Christmas Eve we would eat tamales, enchiladas, sopapillas, and pozole. Both my brother Larry and I eagerly devoured everything on the menu except for the pozole, which we despised. (For those of you who don’t know,...
