At a time of high tension between Democrats and Republicans, he gave us a couple things we could all agree on: his awesomeness and how adorable he is. Saturday Night Live.
That Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton could find something they liked about each other when prompted to do so. On that note, Craig K. Governor Brown signed a law which will require farm workers to get overtime after an eight-hour day. No developed society I know of has been this committed to a decent life for those who labor for our food.
Trump was defeated in California by over 3 million votes. Big old California gives me hope for America. Thanks to everyone—and there were several—who suggested Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump simply dress as each other to achieve peak scariness. But props to Joanne Allard from Tucson for a truly creative submission: Allard suggested Clinton will dress as Ellen Ripley , the protagonist from the film Alien , while Trump go as the alien, wearing an orange headpiece. From Joanne:. I will resist the temptation to suggest her obvious catchphrase, except to point out that it would, of course, be delivered upon her reaching in to grab, er, to extract The Donald.
A handful of other costume ideas came from Jane Wilson, who got really into word play. For Trump:.
Trump again comes up short for Gallup's 'Most Admired' honor | MSNBC
Back then, during the election, Tina Fey famously guest-starred to play then-vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin. Here are some of the best responses. Thanks to David H. You know it. The American people know it. He has always had a fascination with outer space and once proposed that California launch its own space satellite.
We got loads of submissions for classics like The Candidate , Mr. Big props to Michael J. Sweat for reminding us about the film Idiocracy , starring Luke Wilson. Hitler: A Career : The rise and fall of a firebrand and despot who uses pure emotion to rile the masses. Evita : Wife of a dictatorial president who yearns to break out on her own. And thanks to John Donovan for offering a selection of more obscure political films based on genre:. Satire— Bulworth : A flawed film but dead-on depiction of the nihilistic political hucksters gutting our democracy.
Serious— Battle of Chile : Historic documentary filmed as the overthrow of Allende happened. Corruption has never been funnier … until maybe Chris Christie. Cult— Maidstone : written, directed, and starring Norman Mailer who plays a presidential candidate. Famous for scary, semi-real assassination attempt by hammer-wielding method actor Rip Torn. Pure madness. Furthermore, we also see the results of a government bureaucracy the L.
Department of Water and Power captured by business interests, and the paralyzing effects of the distorted incentives for law enforcement officials. Jeb Bush, one of the Republican presidential candidates this year, made a cameo as a limo driver during the Emmy Awards last Sunday night. This week, we asked readers where they expect to see the former presidential contenders on television, and we got some great answers. But our personal favorite comes from reader Joanne Allard, who expects Dr. Alternative: Game of Thrones , because Winter is Coming. Gary Johnson: Big Bang Theory.
There have, of course, been massive changes to the institution over the past few generations, leading the occasional cultural critic to ask: Is marriage becoming obsolete? But few of these people seem genuinely interested in the answer. More often the question functions as a kind of rhetorical sleight of hand, a way of stirring up moral panic about changing family values or speculating about whether society has become too cynical for love. In popular culture, the sentiment still prevails that marriage makes us happy and divorce leaves us lonely, and that never getting married at all is a fundamental failure of belonging.
Dolly Lucio Sevier evaluated dozens of sick children at a facility in South Texas. She found evidence of infection, malnutrition, and psychological trauma. More than 1, migrant children sat in the detention facility here, and Sevier, a local pediatrician, had been examining as many as she could, one at a time. Five years ago, the flight vanished into the Indian Ocean.

Officials on land know more about why than they dare to say. At a. The designator for Malaysia Airlines is MH. The flight number was Fariq Hamid, the first officer, was flying the airplane.
He was 27 years old. This was a training flight for him, the last one; he would soon be fully certified. His trainer was the pilot in command, a man named Zaharie Ahmad Shah, who at 53 was one of the most senior captains at Malaysia Airlines.
In Malaysian style, he was known by his first name, Zaharie. He was married and had three adult children.
He lived in a gated development. He owned two houses. In his first house he had installed an elaborate Microsoft flight simulator. These words came from an elderly woman sitting behind me on a late-night flight from Los Angeles to Washington, D. The plane was dark and quiet. To hear more feature stories, see our full list or get the Audm iPhone app. I listened with morbid fascination, forming an image of the man in my head as they talked.
I imagined someone who had worked hard all his life in relative obscurity, someone with unfulfilled dreams—perhaps of the degree he never attained, the career he never pursued, the company he never started.

Since , blooms of Sargassum have wreaked havoc on tropical shores. A new study explains why this is likely a new normal. In , as seaweed piled up on beaches throughout the Caribbean, it began to rot. Already stinking and sulfurous, the thick layers began to attract insects and repel tourists.
The seaweed—a type of brown algae called sargassum—had grown in the ocean and washed ashore in unprecedented quantities. It prevented fishers from getting into the water, and entangled their nets and propellers. It entangled sea turtles and dolphins, too, fatally preventing them from surfacing for air.
It died and sank offshore, smothering seagrass meadows and coral reefs. Barbados declared a national emergency. In normal years, sargassum is a blessing rather than a curse. Mats of it drift around the ocean, held afloat by gas-filled bladders that look like grapes. The Sargassum fish, for example, is a small, frog-faced predator whose body has adapted to perfectly mimic the seaweed. Hong Kong and Taiwan long had a relationship built around trade and tourism. But as China clamps down in Hong Kong, ties between the pair are strengthening.
It was China was in the early days of its economic rise and was experiencing one of its most politically free periods under Communist rule; Hong Kong was the booming financial hub and crown jewel of what remained of the British Empire; and then there was Taiwan, which was nearing the end of nearly four decades of brutal martial law. At the time, if you had wagered on which of those places would be the freest 35 years later, Taiwan would have had long odds. When kids separated from their families on the U.
On Monday, when ProPublica released the now infamous seven-and-a-half minutes of audiotape recorded inside a U. Within seconds, however, Narvaez, a professor of psychology at the University of Notre Dame who specializes in parenting and child development, had hit the mute button. Many describe conditions in which, whether by official policy or not, shelter staff are prohibited or prevented from hugging or touching the detained kids —hundreds of whom are younger than 13 years old—to comfort them.
A new hypothesis suggests that their vaunted intelligence and short-lived, solitary nature are all linked to a fourth trait. A small shark spots its prey—a meaty, seemingly defenseless octopus. The shark ambushes, and then, in one of the most astonishing sequences in the series Blue Planet II , the octopus escapes.
Once released, it moves to protect itself—it grabs discarded seashells and swiftly arranges them into a defensive dome. Thanks to acts like these, cephalopods—the group that includes octopuses, squid, and cuttlefish—have become renowned for their intelligence. Octopuses, for example, have been seen unscrewing jar lids to get at hidden food, carrying coconut shells to use as armor, barricading their den with stones , and squirting jets of water to deter predators or short out aquarium lights.
T he horrors detailed in the press were hard to believe. The images so traumatized the Northern public that after the war, the warden of the prison, Henry Wirz, became one of the only people tried for war crimes. Much more so than in , there is a widely held belief that all humans are created equal. That was prescient. There is no great victory to celebrate, as in , no special anniversary to mark, as in , and nowhere near unanimity in the proper direction for the country going forward.
