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
I just saw the ad on Twitter. The fact the white girl was labeled "Mean Girl" shows how normalized it is to just called black women 'bitches'. - Anika

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. "My clients did act in a video and their actions are contrary to religious requirements but are not crimes to deserve legal punishment. Saying prayers is a religious obligation in Islam but no one gets jail terms for not saying... more... - Soup in a TARDIS

Oklahoma City man arrested for washing himself with mayonnaise in public fountain - KJRH.com
"One man was arrested for using mayonnaise to wash himself in a public fountain. Oklahoma City police say they received complaints about the man who was said to be bathing at Reno and Mickey Mantle. Officers reported finding Jorge Arturo Perez, 23, soaking wet and breathing hard in the city fountain. Perez told the police he was taking a bath in the fountain and was washing his hair with mayonnaise." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

Antidepressants rapidly alter brain architecture, study finds - LA Times - http://www.latimes.com/science...
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. "We should have, but we didn't."" - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
I actually knew that! He's discussed in Ferguson's autobiography - Soup in a TARDIS
I had no idea -- but the first episode of the season (the only one I've seen so far) I kept thinking that Capaldi was channeling CraigeyFerg! - RudĩϐЯaЯïan

Map: Kindergarten Requirements Nationwide - http://www.edweek.org/ew...
Map: Kindergarten Requirements Nationwide
"States that require school districts to offer kindergarten differ on whether they must offer a full-day or half-day program, which could be as short as 2.5 hours a day. Districts often choose to offer a full-day program even when the state does not mandate it, with the funding coming from local revenue or fees charged to parents. In other cases, such as in Minnesota, districts may receive state funding for full-day kindergarten but are not required to offer it." - Anika from Bookmarklet
I think we're getting very close on full-day becoming far more standard, and better funded. - Jennifer Dittrich
I didn't know half-day kinder was still a thing. When my brother started kinder in '89, it was full day. Not all public schools offer kindergarten, but they're usually full day. My son's school lost their funding for Head Start, but the IB program requires they offer a pre-k, so they have Transitional Kindergarten which is half-day and partially funded by the district. - Anika
It seems really split here, with urban schools far more likely to have full-day, and rural with more half-day. It isn't fully funded, so if the district doesn't have the cash, you don't do it. Our county is mixed, so some schools have it and some don't - which means that you get that weird competitive kindergarten shuffling from parents to get their kids in the 'right' one, even if their local school doesn't offer it. - Jennifer Dittrich
Kindergarten around here is still split Anika, One friend in Cerritos is half day. One friend in LB is full day. - Steve C Team Marina
At public schools? I know Montessori and many private schools have half-day, but LBUSD follows LAUSD closely and also offers the half-day Transitional Kinder, while Kinder is full. - Anika
In my county, they're almost all half-day and a lot of people fight the idea of full-day kindergarten, usually with the argument that kids that young can't handle a full day. It's almost always a "think of the poor children" argument As it is, a lot more people seem to be waiting year to enroll their kids in kindergarten. I imagine even more would wait to enroll their kids if it went to a full day. But, people here don't like change, either. - Katy S
That's interesting. I thought kindergarten was required in Idaho. Everyone I knew attended. We had full-day kindergarten there. In New Mexico, my oldest had half-day kindergarten but the school changed to full-day kindergarten by the time my second son attended. - Jenny H. from Android

I Was An Extra On The Sleepy Hollow Set, And Here's What I Learned
"Action! The AD walks up behind my co-visitors, leans in DURING THE SCENE and whispers, "OK after he's done talking, just walk in front of the camera." I instinctually decline. He smiles and says, "OK, now." The silent club becomes a reverberating nightmare echo chamber of my shoes clomping around. I walk past the two actors mid-scene with a look that my cat gives when she's leaning back to bite me. "Maybe you'll be a wipe," someone suggests. I'm sorry, America." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
Hah that was hilarious. "Action! Another journalist sits a few spaces down the bar from me, this clever devil has developed cues and interactions with other extras far beyond my own. His character mutely gestures to the lovely co-ed at the bar, asking her if she'd like a drink. She declines. He continues this pantomime every, single, take. It's the Groundhog Day of rejection.

A lot of grade/middle/high schools leave "The Merchant of Venice" out of the curriculum in favor of plays with less antisemitism, but I'd expect someone with a vaguely related humanities degree to at least know the historical use of the term. - Jennifer Dittrich
We never read it in high school, and my college Shakespeare class didn't read that play. Still, I've I've known the reference since I was a teen. - Katy S from iPhone
Yeah, that's the other part of it - it was something I knew long before I read the play (though I did that on my own in HS,) and the character was specifically discussed in our AP English Lit class (along with several others for works we didn't have time to read.) - Jennifer Dittrich

Here's Why Longsword Fighting Is Now A Popular Sport
"If you love sword battles in your fantasy films, then this emerging sport may be perfect for you. Called longsword fighting, it's a revival of a once-forgotten ancient skill.

Social media sleuths aid gay couple beating probe
"Police searching for a group of suspects in the beating of a gay couple say they got an assist from social media users, and a defense lawyer said Wednesday that some of them were turning themselves in for questioning. A security video of the group strolling downtown was posted by police Tuesday and set the online community to work. Within hours, a Twitter user posted a photo of the well-dressed men and women gathered at a restaurant. Another got help figuring out which restaurant, used Facebook to find people who had "checked in" there and started matching faces to names. "This is how Twitter is supposed to work for cops," Philadelphia police Detective Joe Murray tweeted late Tuesday as the crowd-sourced investigation exploded online" - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
