The Most Wanted Man
2014-07-25 17:22:13 (13 minutes ago) 

I didn’t really mind that Anton Corbijn’s A Most Wanted Man had the problem, common to adaptations of John le Carré’s spy novels, of focusing so intently on the subtle power machinations among its large cast of characters that the international espionage plot in which they’re ostensibly embroiled remains blurry and hard to follow. Even if this film’s story, about a small intelligence unit in post-9/11 Hamburg, Germany, tracking the movements of a suspected Muslim terrorist, had clicked into place with the precision of a Swiss watch, I wouldn’t really have been paying attention. I wasn’t there for cloak-and-dagger intrigue. I was there to watch Philip Seymour Hoffman for the last time as the lead in a feature film. His birthday was this week—he would have turned 47—which added to the sense that these last couple of borrowed hours in his presence amounted to a kind of valediction, a chance to see this exceptional actor at work again and start to really, finally, say goodbye. (Hoffman will appear in his final role in the fall—a now-truncated supporting part in Mockingjay—which he was in the midst of shooting when he died, suddenly and still somehow unbelievably, of a heroin overdose in February.)

Getting Married in Heaven
2014-07-25 17:32:33 (3 minutes ago) 

On their way to get married, a young Catholic couple is involved in a fatal car accident. The couple find themselves sitting outside the Pearly Gates waiting for St. Peter to process them into Heaven. While waiting, they begin to wonder: Could they possibly get married in Heaven? When St. Peter showed up, they asked him.

St. Peter said, 'I don't know. This is the first time anyone has asked. Let me go find out,' and he leaves.

The couple sat and waited, and waited. Two months passed and the couple are still waiting. While waiting, they began to wonder what would happen if it didn't work out; could you get a divorce in heaven. After yet another month, St. Peter finally returns, looking somewhat bedraggled.

'Yes,' he informs the couple, 'you can get married in Heaven.'

'Great!' said the couple, 'But we were just wondering, what if things don't work out? Could we also get a divorce in Heaven?'

St. Peter, red-faced with anger, slammed his clipboard onto the ground. 'What's wrong?' asked the frightened couple.

'OH, COME ON!', St. Peter shouted, 'It took me three months to find a priest up here! Do you have any idea how long it'll take me to find a lawyer ?

Judge: Executions are 'brutal, savage events', so stop trying to hide that
2014-07-25 17:30:46 (5 minutes ago) 
If we're going to be barbarians, why try to mask it? Gotta agree with this appellate judge:
"Using drugs meant for individuals with medical needs to carry out executions is a misguided effort to mask the brutality of executions by making them look serene and beautiful — like something any one of us might experience in our final moments," U.S. 9th Circuit Court Chief Judge Alex Kozinski wrote in a dissent in the Arizona death penalty case of Joseph Rudolph Wood III.

"But executions are, in fact, brutal, savage events, and nothing the state tries to do can mask that reality. Nor should we. If we as a society want to carry out executions, we should be willing to face the fact that the state is committing a horrendous brutality on our behalf."

Kozinski revealed his views in a dissent filed Monday to an order in which the full 9th Circuit refused to review a decision of a 9th Circuit three-judge panel to put Wood's execution on hold.

Now keep in mind that Kozinski, a Reagan appointee, is pro-death penalty, and is concerned that legal challenges to drug cocktails are keeping many death-row inmates alive. Yet this makes perfect sense:
"If we as a society cannot stomach the splatter from an execution carried out by a firing squad, then we shouldn’t be carrying out executions at all." He may be blood-thirsty enough to welcome this (and the guillotine, too, which would be his preferred method), but society might not be so tolerant. And even if they were, let people know what is really being done in their name.

The initial intensity is thus kept at 40 knots. Global models as well as statistical guidance continue to forecast an unfavorable environment near the cyclone. In addition, the cyclone is heading to an area of lower sea surface temperatures. This should result in gradual weakening during the next few days. Genevieve has slowed down a little bit and is now moving westward at 6 knots. An eastward-moving trough in the westerlies is weakening the subtropical ride north of the cyclone, and consequently, the cyclone is forecast to decrease in forward speed during the next day or so. The ridge is forecast to rebuild westward as the trough moves out, and this pattern will keep Genevieve on a general west to west-northwest track for the next 5 days. During the latter portion of the forecast, the cyclone will likely become a shallow post-tropical cyclone, steered westward by the low-level flow. The official forecast continues very close to the multi-model consensus guidance.

So today I finally had sex with this guy I really really like for the first time. It was so spontaneous and in the heat of the moment that we didn't use protection and neither of us cared because we were so into it. So he was really deep and said he was about to finish. At this point my legs are as high in the air and far apart as they would go. As he was in the process of finishing, for some unknown reason I blurted out, 'I can feel myself getting pregnant!' He immediately pulled his pants up, looking like he'd seen a ghost and took off. Needless to say he's not answering my calls or messages.

FACT SHEET: Visit of President Perez Molina of Guatemala, President Hernandez of Honduras, and President Sanchez Ceren of El Salvador
2014-07-25 17:02:53 (33 minutes ago) 

On July 25, the President and Vice President hosted Presidents Otto Perez Molina of Guatemala, Juan Orlando Hernandez of Honduras, and Salvador Sanchez Ceren of El Salvador to discuss how the United States and Central American governments are cooperating to disrupt smuggling organizations and promote safe, legal, and orderly migration.  The leaders discussed how we can work together with other members of the international community to accelerate development, economic growth, and security improvements in the region and address the systemic factors that are causing Central American citizens to undertake the dangerous journey to the United States.

Unaccompanied Migrant Children

The Administration remains greatly concerned by the numbers of unaccompanied children who are crossing into the United States. These children are some of the most vulnerable, and many become victims of violent crime, gang recruitment, exploitation, or sexual abuse along the dangerous journey.  This is a humanitarian matter and our first priority is to make sure these children are housed, fed, and receive any necessary medical treatment. We will also enforce U.S. immigration laws and the most effective way to deter the use of these dangerous human smuggling routes is to repatriate those who have crossed the border recently and have no relief from removal.  We have made clear that migrant children and adults arriving with their children are not eligible to benefit from the passage of immigration reform legislation or from the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) process. The Department of Justice (DOJ) and Department of Homeland Security are enhancing enforcement and removal activities.  DOJ is deploying additional immigration judges to increase capacity to process the cases of recent undocumented entrants, and to handle immigration court hearings as efficiently as possible while ensuring due process to safely return unlawful migrants to their home countries more quickly.

Shared Responsibility

The Governments of El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras have coordinated closely with the United States in responding to increased irregular migration. They have implemented public awareness campaigns on the dangers of irregular migration, increased their consular presence on the border, and strengthened their enforcement efforts against smuggling organizations. In addition, the United States is working in close coordination with each country to ensure the safe, orderly, and dignified return of their citizens and to ensure adequate repatriation and reintegration resources in each country.  The United States is also providing $9.6 million in additional resources to support and expand repatriation center capacity and to provide training to immigration officials on migrant care and to increase the capacity of these governments and non-governmental organizations to provide expanded services to returned migrants.

Commitment to Central America’s Security and Development

Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador face very complex challenges that have contributed to the recent increase in individuals emigrating from their home countries, including high levels of violent crime, poverty, and lack of opportunities.  The United States recognizes these serious challenges and is committed to promoting the evolution of a Central America that is prosperous, democratic, and secure. We continue to operate robust programs to support our Central American partners providing $161.5 million this year for Central America Regional Security Initiative programs that are important to enabling Central American countries to respond to pressing security and governance challenges.  The United States also provides almost $130 million in ongoing bilateral assistance to El Salvador, Honduras, and Guatemala for a variety of programs related to health, education, climate change, economic growth, military cooperation, and democracy assistance.

The Administration is working to increase its support for Central America, beginning with $300 million in foreign assistance in the emergency supplemental request sent to Congress. The United States seeks to work with Central America, Mexico, Colombia, multilateral development banks, and other international partners to develop a sustained, well-coordinated plan to address the challenges facing Central America.  This effort will require the leadership of Central American governments, in close collaboration with civil society and the private sector to foster broad-based, lasting improvements in social and economic conditions in the region.

A Call Answered: Unlocking America's Cell Phones
2014-07-25 17:02:53 (33 minutes ago) 

Last year, over 114,000 of you made your voice heard and petitioned the Administration to restore a basic consumer freedom: to take your mobile service — and a phone or tablet you already own — to the carrier that best suits your needs. 

It's common sense, good for competition and innovation, and essential to consumers.  That's why the Administration declared last March that "It's time to legalize cell phone unlocking," and today the President commended Congress for doing just that:

I applaud Members of Congress for passing the Unlocking Consumer Choice and Wireless Competition Act. Last year, in response to a "We the People" petition from consumers across our country, my Administration called for allowing Americans to use their phones or mobile devices on any network they choose. We laid out steps the FCC, industry, and Congress should take to ensure copyright law does not undermine wireless competition, and worked with wireless carriers to reach a voluntary agreement that helps restore this basic consumer freedom. The bill Congress passed today is another step toward giving ordinary Americans more flexibility and choice, so that they can find a cell phone carrier that meets their needs and their budget. I commend Chairmen Leahy and Goodlatte, and Ranking Members Grassley and Conyers for their leadership on this important consumer issue and look forward to signing this bill into law.

Everyone has done their part to get here -- from the FCC convening carriers, to the industry agreeing to voluntary steps to make their unlocking process transparent and reliable.  And as he said today, the President looks forward to signing this bill into law. It's just one more way he is taking the lead in making life a little easier for the middle class, and ensuring our technology remains the envy of the world.

You called, the President answered, and together we made cell phone unlocking happen.

ESPN's Stephen A. Smith gets hammered for on-air remarks on domestic violence
2014-07-25 16:51:09 (44 minutes ago) 

I'm so glad there are so many pro athletes who are terrible people. It's allowed us to have so many serious national conversations about things lately. Or, you know, not:
Listen up, ladies, ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith has a message for you, and it’s basically: Stop provoking men into beating you so Smith and his “fellas” don’t have to get your back.

Smith’s point—and it’s a bad one—goes something like this: Men should never hit women, but it’s really on women to make sure they don’t do anything that would trigger a violent response.

If you like watching videos of train wrecks, that one's a doozy.

Smith took to Twitter after the predictable storm of complaints:

Upon hearing what I had to say, although admitting I could have been more articulate on the matter, let me be clear: I don't understand how on earth someone could interpret that I somehow was saying women are to blame for domestic violence.

[...] But what about addressing women on how they can help prevent the obvious wrong being done upon them? In no way was I accusing a women of being wrong. I was simply saying what that preventive measures always need to be addressed because there's only but so much that can be done after the fact....once the damage is already done.

So that'll go well. On the other side, ESPN's Michelle Beadle was one of the people who called Smith out on his remarks. Her reward has been a steady stream of vulgarities and bile tweeted out from the internet's worst denizens.

This really has been a learning experience, hasn't it?
