This Is Why Disney Characters Rarely Have Moms - MSN Movies News - http://movies.msn.com/movies...
"“I’ll give you two stories that are the reasons. I never talk about this, but I will. One reason is practical because the movies are 80 or 90 minutes long, and Disney films are about growing up. They’re about that day in your life when you have to accept responsibility. “Simba ran away from home but had to come back. In shorthand, it’s much quicker to have characters grow up when you bump off their parents. Bambi’s mother gets killed, so he has to grow up. Belle only has a father, but he gets lost, so she has to step into that position. It’s a story shorthand." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
“The other reason—and this is really odd—Walt Disney, in the early 1940s, when he was still living at this house, also bought a house for his mom and dad to move into. He had the studio guys come over and fix the furnace, but when his mom and dad moved in, the furnace leaked and his mother died. The housekeeper came in the next morning and pulled his mother and father out on the front... more... - Steve C Team Marina

'Cosby Show': Our 10 favorite moments - CNN.com
"It's hard to believe that "The Cosby Show" premiered 30 years ago this month. For eight seasons, beginning in 1984 and ending in 1992, the Huxtables made us laugh and love them all the more for the wonderful family life they portrayed. Here are 10 of the show's moments that we just can't forget: 1. 'Night Time Is the Right Time' No "Cosby Show" list is complete without this family performance, which featured the Huxtables lip-syncing the Ray Charles hit.

Fallon's epic battle with Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani - CNN.com
"So what happens when "The Tonight Show" host has two popular singers perform songs by not actually singing? A whole bunch of awesome, apparently. The setup is simple: Each celebrity contestant selects a song and then lip-syncs a snippet. Shelton kicked it off with Taco's '80s hit "Puttin' on the Ritz," including some faux tap dancing. That was followed by Fallon's version of Ellie Goulding's "Burn," and Stefani ended the round with Call Me Maybe" - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Metro yanks Fox TV show bus ads branded as racist, offensive to women - LA Times
"The ads for the series that premiered this week show actress Octavia Spencer next to the words “Scary Bitch.” Metropolitan Transportation Authority spokesman Mark Littman said the agency decided to remove the ad because that label “denigrates women.”"....." Littman said CBS Outdoor, which handles the agency’s advertising contract, usually flags possibly questionable ads for review, but these were not flagged." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Iranian youth behind 'Happy' video sentenced - MSN Music News
"TEHRAN, Iran (AP) Six young Iranian men and women videotaped dancing to Pharrell Williams' "Happy" and the homemade video's director have been sentenced to suspended jail terms and lashes, their lawyer said Friday. The Iranians' case attracted international attention when they were detained in May for participating in a production deemed indecent by hard-liners in Iran. The video showed the men and women, none of whom wore obligatory headscarves, dancing together in sunglasses and silly clothes on Tehran rooftops and alleyways. Lawyer Farshid Rofugaran said the seven received suspended sentences of six months in jail and 91 lashes each. He said the suspended jail term was punishment for acting in the video and the lashes for ignoring Islamic norms." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
"The suspended sentences mean that verdicts against the defendants won't be carried out unless they commit crimes and are found guilty in the next three years.

Antidepressants rapidly alter brain architecture, study finds - LA Times
Show all
" A single dose of a popular class of psychiatric drug used to treat depression can alter the brain’s architecture within hours, even though most patients usually don’t report improvement for weeks, a new study suggests. More than 1 in 10 adults in the U.S. use these drugs, which adjust the availability of a chemical transmitter in the brain, serotonin, by blocking the way it is reabsorbed. The so-called Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors, or SSRIs, include Prozac, Lexapro, Celexa, Paxil and Zoloft." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
"The findings could be a first step toward figuring out whether a relatively simple brain scan might one day help psychiatrists distinguish between those who respond to such drugs and those who don’t, an area of mystery and controversy in depression treatment." - Steve C Team Marina

Craig Ferguson says he used to drop acid with Doctor Who - LA Times
""When the rest of the guys were at Emerson or Harvard or doing stuff like that, I was taking acid in the back of a van with the guy who ended up playing the Doctor," Ferguson said. The Dreamboys was a Glasgow-based punk band that featured Capaldi on lead guitar and vocals and Ferguson on drums. According to the BBC, the band released a three-song vinyl album in 1980, but the group didn't remain together for long. As Ferguson notes, the band unfortunately, shared a title with the most successful male stripper act in Britain. "We didn't strip," Ferguson said.

"New Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Cat Stevens is taking the "Peace Train" back on the road. He announced Monday that he will make a six-city concert tour in North America this December, his first series of shows in the U.S. since 1976. His conversion to Islam followed, putting his music career on hold for a quarter century. Stevens, who also is releasing a blues album on Oct. 27 produced by Rick Rubin and titled "Tell 'Em I'm Gone," is using that stage name along with Yusuf, the name he took when he converted. The performer of 1970s-era hits "Wild World," ''Morning Has Broken" and "Peace Train" has slowly broken back into secular music during the past decade and has made only a handful of semi-public and television appearances in the U.S." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Bill Cosby to loan art collection to Smithsonian - MSN TV News
"WASHINGTON (AP) -- After amassing a private collection of African-American Art over four decades, Bill Cosby and his wife Camille plan to showcase their holdings for the first time in an exhibition planned at the Smithsonian Institution. The Smithsonian's National Museum of African Art announced Monday that the entire Cosby collection will go on view in November in a unique exhibit juxtaposing African-American art with African art. The collection, which will be loaned to the museum, includes works by such leading African-American artists as Beauford Delaney, Faith Ringgold, Jacob Lawrence, Augusta Savage and Henry Ossawa Tanner. The Cosby collection of more than 300 African-American paintings, prints, sculptures and drawings has never been loaned or seen publicly, except for one work of art. "It's so important to show art by African-American artists in this exhibition," Cosby said in a written statement.

Autism's Gut-Brain Connection | Fast forward | OZY - http://www.ozy.com/fast-fo...
"But scientists have found promising clues in the gut. Research has revealed striking differences in the trillions of bacteria — collectively known as the microbiome — in the intestines of children with and without autism. But the gut bacteria in individuals with autism aren’t just different. Researchers at the California Institute of Technology have shown for the first time that they may actually contribute to the disorder. They reported in the journal Cell in December 2013 that an experimental probiotic therapy alleviated autism-like behaviors in mice and are already planning a clinical trial. Today autism is treated primarily through behavioral therapy. But the new study suggests that treatment may one day come in the form of a probiotic — live, “friendly” bacteria like those found in yogurt. “If you block the gastrointestinal problem, you can treat the behavioral symptoms,” said Paul Patterson, a professor of biology at Caltech who co-authored the study. University of Colorado Boulder professor Rob Knight hailed the finding as “groundbreaking” in a commentary in Cell." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
"Among the most common health complaints from children with autism? Gastrointestinal problems.

San Diego cabbies cry foul over body odor test
"Body odor is among 52 criteria that officials at San Diego International Airport use to judge taxi drivers. Cabbies say that smacks of prejudice and discrimination. For years, inspectors with the San Diego Regional Airport Authority run down their checklist for each cabbie — proof of insurance, functioning windshield wipers, adequate tire treads, good brakes. Drivers are graded pass, fail or needs fixing. Anyone who flunks the smell test is told to change before picking up another customer. Leaders of the United Taxi Workers of San Diego union say the litmus perpetuates a stereotype that predominantly foreign-born taxi drivers smell bad. A 2013 survey of 331 drivers by San Diego State University and Center on Policy Initiatives found 94 percent were immigrants and 65 percent were from East Africa. Drivers wonder how inspectors determine who reeks. Driver Abel Seifu, 36, from Ethiopia, suspects they sniff inconspicuously during friendly conversations in the staging area. Airport authority spokeswoman Rebecca Bloomfield said there is "no standard process" to testing." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Drivers, start your eyeballs, the three-foot rule for cyclists is here - LA Times
"California law requiring drivers to maintain a distance of three feet when passing cyclists on the road goes into effect next week. The Three Feet for Safety Act, passed last year by the Legislature, is the latest sign of an important cultural shift in a state famously dominated by automobiles. Do you bike in L.A.? Watch this to see what concerns all those drivers. Drivers discuss the challenge of sharing the road with bicycles in this Los Angeles Times video. The building of a bike-friendly society is a long, slow process. Officials in Los Angeles are in the midst of a 35-year project to build out 1,684 miles of bikeways. But as more people opt to get out of their cars and onto their bicycles, it is increasingly important to figure out how motorists and cyclists can share the road safely." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
I knew this was coming, but I need a video tutorial on how this works. If they are in a marked bike lane, am I okay to pass them if I'm smack dab in the middle of the lane next to them? What if I'm coming up alongside a bike and about to pass, but there's no bike lane? - Corinne L
If there's no bike lane, I think you treat them as if they were a car fully in the lane. If you can't pass them without at least 3 feet room, you have to hang out behind until you can legally pass (which is the same as it'd be if a slow car were in front of you on a single lane road).

How I am supposed to estimate 3 feet? That's sounds like circus performer level precision to me. - Todd Hoff
Yardstick. If you're unsure, be generous. The point is not to pass a slow moving vehicle (in this case a human-powered cycle) unless you're certain you can do so safely, without menacing someone. - Spidra Webster
I have this image of my reaching out the window with a yardstick to measure the distance and then loosing control and, well, you can fill out the rest of the image. But I'm not being facetious, there's no training for distance estimation at speed, how does anyone know they are 3 feet from anything.? And of course I only pass when I think it's safe. - Todd Hoff
How do you estimate your distance to the car in front of you or when to activate your turn signal, since there are laws governing those distances as well? - Victor Ganata
I don't of course. I doubt anyone else does either. - Todd Hoff
We did training for distance estimation - it was part of driving school. Hell, it's part of the test for your license in WA. Stopping distance from a curb, following distance at speed, how far to park away from a curb, when you're required to signal a turn. - Jennifer Dittrich
And when you operate your vehicle are you really constantly saying I'm X feet away or are you judging that I am a safe distance given my experience, conditions, and vehicle? - Todd Hoff
I'd love mythbusters to give this a try. Take X people in Y different kind of cars in different conditions and see how good people are at estimating distances. Maybe I'm the only one that sucks. - Todd Hoff
I judge the distance by "if you are close enough that I can kick your vehicle, then you are too frickn close" or "can I put a dent in your door with a swing of my u-lock? if yes, then too close." erring on the side of caution is generally a safe bet. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
Honestly, quibbling over the three feet isn't even really the point, though I do consider distance measurement pretty damn important. That's the minimum. If you don't feel capable of knowing exactly where that is, it's fine - err on the side of giving more room. - Jennifer Dittrich
These comments are why I'm hoping there will be a video PSA from CalTrans that demonstrates how this works in real world conditions. - Corinne L
Are we really having conflict over what 3 feet means? Hold you your arm and add about another foot or so to the end of your fingertips and that should give you an idea of what 3 feet is. If you (or a passenger) could reach out the side of the car nearest a cyclist and touch them without too much effort/leaning out then you're too flippin' close. - vicster: full-bodied

Double standard: We condemn Ray Rice; but what about Mayweather? | SI.com
Here are two star athletes embroiled in the same issue: domestic violence. One plays football. Or played football, anyway. A video released this week shows him striking his then-fiancée, now-wife, in an elevator, knocking her unconscious. It’s impossible to watch the footage and not feel sick to your stomach. The other is a boxer. He has been accused of domestic violence on multiple occasions, including recently. He has gone to jail for assaulting one mother of his children, the charge reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor. As recently as Tuesday, speaking specifically about the other athlete’s video, he told reporters, “I think there’s a lot of worse things that go on in other people’s households, also. It’s just not caught on video, if that’s safe to say.” It’s not. Not safe. Not smart. Not humane. It’s impossible to hear that and not feel sick to your stomach.
