(Sung to the tune of Maniac ): A Satanist who can zip out of chains. He is suave, and he’s smart, and clumsy. He gropes all the chicks, and eats his victim’s brains, Everybody says he’s eeeee-vil
This year’s third Awards dinner honored four people for their remarkable work in films. The emotional tribute was to the real heroes of the film Argo – Tony Mendez and his wife, Jonna, as well as Canadian Ambassador Ken Taylor. Sadly, the Ambassador had planned to attend the award ceremony, but died earlier this month and his funeral was held the day before the event

As more and more of your favorite stars hop on the Snapchat wagon, figuring out how to add them to your friends list can become a difficult task. Celebrities use the rising social media platform to share sexy selfies , funny videos, or behind-the-scenes footage, but unlike Instagram and Twitter, there are no verified accounts or check marks next to their name, so trying to hunt them down can seem like an endless mission.
Before she was whipping her hair back and forth, Willow Smith was her father Will Smith’s little bean. The actress and artist turns 15 this Halloween , and to show her how much he cares, Papa Will penned perhaps his most meaningful words since he and Jazzy Jeff made the ” Fresh Prince ” theme song. Smith took to Facebook to thank Willow for “correcting” his heart and teaching him to love “without constriction or condition”: Happy Birthday, my Bean.
Zombies of China, consider yourselves warned. The holiday isn’t incredibly popular there, but as the tradition is garnering interest, transport police in the southern city of Guangzhou are asking people dressed for the holiday to stay off of public transit for fear other passengers may panic.

By Yusri Mohammed and Ahmed Mohamed Hassan ISMAILIA, Egypt/CAIRO, Oct 31 (Reuters) – A Russian airliner carrying 224 passengers and crew crashed in Egypt’s Sinai peninsula on Saturday, and a security officer at the scene said most passengers appeared to have been killed. The Airbus A321, operated by Russian airline Kogalymavia under the brand name Metrojet, was flying from the Sinai Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh to St Petersburg in Russia when it went down in a desolate mountainous area of central Sinai soon after daybreak, the aviation ministry said.

Fedelissimo di Beppe Grillo e mattatore della kermesse di Imola , di cui è stato principale organizzatore oltreché presentatore dal palco, Bugani sarà designato con tutta probabilità candidato sindaco per le elezioni amministrative del 2016.
After the most recent GOP Presidential whatever-you-want-to-call-it, some of you looking desperately for a Republican who seems, well, not kooky may have cast your gaze toward Ohio Governor John Kasich. He’s low-key, he’s intelligent, his eyes don’t rotate in different directions when he campaigns, and hey! he’s from Ohio, home of presidents, even if you can’t quite remember which
The conjunction between the efforts on Syria and Yemen is interesting, especially as the talks also coincided with Saudi Arabia for the first time agreeing to Iranian participation in an international conference on Syria.
Why people happily spend money on snacks, smartphones, and slot machines–but not coaching or therapy.
I recently entered my 29th year of practice in the field of emotional health. Through the decades, I’ve seen a number of things change–hairstyles, clothing trends, music, cars, technology, and communication preferences
In recent days, the Democratic Party establishment has stepped up efforts to freeze the momentum for Sen. Bernie Sanders, pressing Democratic Party office holders, who are also convention super delegates, to get in line and trying to create an impression that the contest is over
New Century Theatre Company’s Production of Festen; A Complicated Enticing Portrayal of Family Dysfunction
Seattle’s New Century Theatre Company recently premiered Festen , an intricate portrait of seriously dysfunctional family whose issues come to a head when everyone returns home for the patriarch’s 60th birthday. The show is brilliantly staged and keeps the audience on edge speculating and wondering who did what and how it will be resolved (or not).
A 97-year-old woman has received an honorary diploma from a Michigan high school, eight decades after she was forced to drop out to help her family. Margaret Thome Bekema finally was able to don a mortarboard and fulfill her lifelong goal in front of her friends and family on Thursday. School administrators from Catholic Central High School in Grand Rapids presented her with the diploma at the Yorkshire and Stonebridge Manor senior community in Walker.
They walk among us–those agents of change. Sometimes, we just need to be reminded of who they are
After all these years, I finally made it to the Vizcaya Sundowners Halloween Ball. The 29th annual event, to raise money for the upkeep of Vizcaya was held Friday night. “Vizcaya engages the community and its visitors in learning through the arts, history and the environment
This week, a new 21st century debate surfaced: How do we protect the data cloud we have all come to depend on when it is physically composed of cables running across the bottom of the ocean? The issue came to light after it was reported that Russian spy ships were operating near key cable routes. Former NATO Supreme Allied Commander James Stavridis writes that, “Well over 95 percent of everything moving on the global Internet passes through 200 or so highly active cables, some as deep underwater as Mount Everest is tall.” Lixian Hantover offers a profile of what the undersea cloud looks like and what its vulnerabilities are.
As the recent presidential debate showed, the trusty old media-bashing tactic of Republican candidates was alive and well, and this season it is pushing into over-drive with a zest that would make Spiro Agnew cheer. While the candidates’ harsh words for the reporters covering them brought the usual applause from the party’s base, it’s utter nonsense. At the CNBC debate last week, the level of mendacity and hypocrisy that some of the candidates directed toward the media was stunning.
Thank goodness the Republican House approved a budget compromise that lifted the debt ceiling for 2 years, and ignored the Republican Presidential debates. It was a compromise because Democrats were needed to get approval in both houses of Congress. In fact, retiring House Speaker John Boehner was only able to pass it because all 187 Democrats voted for it, and only 79 House Republicans–and the Senate approved it late last night
It boggles the mind that the White House, in announcing the deployment of more Special Operations to Syria, still insists on saying that they won’t have a “combat mission.” They will tell you that sending Special Operations to advise, train, and assist means troops will behind the front lines, and thus, won’t be heading over with orders to join battles. I was an adviser in Iraq, in 2011, and I can tell you, they’re likely to face combat, whether that’s their mission, or not
When it comes to navigating the difficult waters of Silicon Valley, it is important to know who the big movers and shakers in the industry are. These are some of the top people that have shaped the Silicon Valley that the world knows today.

There’s a chance to score a climate victory next week on the super-pollutants called hydrofluorocarbons or HFCs – one that would give a boost to the Paris climate summit next month. I am in Dubai for the annual meeting of the Montreal Protocol, the treaty that saved the ozone layer. This is the last important international meeting before world leaders gather at the Paris climate summit.
Kate Upton , model and “The Other Woman” actress, was once a serious equestrian who competed nationally before becoming famous. In an appearance on the “The Tonight Show,” Upton showed just how obsessed with horses she really is. Host Jimmy Fallon announced that Upton was handing out the Breeder’s Cup trophy on Saturday, and the model got very enthusiastic. “I’m so excited, I’m so excited to meet American Pharoah ,” Upton said of the racehorse. “He got the Triple Crown, now if he wins the Breeder’s Cup, he’ll have a Grand Slam.
This universal problem has turned into a global crisis, as I have heard complaints from women from all over the world and from all walks of life. Especially when their significant other suffers from a simple paper cut, the common cold, a slight headache … to a little swelling from a needle prick, and — even worse — hatching a chimerical plan to get your attention to be mollycoddled
Please listen: I need to tell you a story. The story of a 5-year-old boy who was attacked at his own school. A story where violence, aggression, and viciousness lurked through the halls of a place that is supposed to be safe
Traveling on the cheap doesn’t have to mean seedy motels and a road trip across the U.S. (Though trust us, that’s not a bad plan at all.) But for the wanderluster who wants to go somewhere truly epic , there are a number of options you’re probably failing to consider. Lonely Planet recently named their Best Value Destinations for 2016 , for example.

The Case for Philosophy in America’s High Schools — Part 5: Why is There Suffering in the World? — Eight Theories
We were dealing with Aeschylus’s view of how one might reconcile the goodness of God with the fact that so many good people suffer, as do children and infants, and yet so many bad people prosper. Why was the natural world created in such a way that animals suffer? Why is nature so cruel if it comes from God’s hand?
I’ve never been to summer camp. Always wanted to. In my 14-year-old fantasies, it was a place you sat on a dock at dusk with the best friend you wish you had at home, telling her your deepest and darkest until a sporty, pony-tailed counselor dragged you kicking and screaming back to your bunk
Just to catch you up. If you haven’t been following the previous installments in this series here goes: I was singing and talking too much and I got a hemorrhagic lesion on my right vocal cord (just like Adele and Sam Smith).

What prompts a young woman to shout her abortion or live tweet her IUD insertion? The most lasting effect of the smear campaign against Planned Parenthood may be this: Young women are done — beyond done — with being shamed for the fact that they are sexual beings, with sexual bodies that have tits and asses and twats and vaginas and uteruses. They are done being forced to have sex — fuck rape culture — and they are done being forced to have babies when they choose to have sex
We take things so seriously. I’m not talking about war or climate change. I’m talking about the little things in life that really don’t deserve our attention or focus.
Are White House Insiders with Connections to Big Oil Undermining the President’s Climate Change Agenda?
With only one year to go before the next presidential election, President Obama has begun to focus more intently on his legacy. As such, for much of this year, he has emphasized his belief that climate change is an existential threat that must be addressed through clean energy. If that’s the case, he must explain his decision to gut the Renewable Fuel Standard and hand Big Oil a decisive political victory.
It may not seem so at times, but the USA still commands more of global mindshare than any other nation. What we say and do influences people of all nations in ways meritorious, deleterious, inspirational and inflammatory. The world hangs on every vote in every community in every state of our nation for news of what they hope or fear the outcome to be on the first Tuesday after the first Monday of November on even years
The third Republican presidential primary debate was a sprawling, messy affair that played out more as a battle between candidates and moderators than an exchange among the debaters. At this point the key problem is the sheer number of human beings on stage: it is virtually impossible to design a format that accommodates this many people – ten candidates and a whopping six questioners
Frank Keat had dedicated 65 years of his life to horses. He started working in stables as a teenager, and he later bred the animals and served as a judge at equestrian competitions across England. On his death bed, the 80-year-old, who had cancer, would regale nurses at Bodmin Hospital in Cornwall with stories about his equine career

The two parties have largely built a stacked deck resembling a house of cards when it comes down to determining the winning presidential candidate. In the national context, this house of cards is an Electoral College decided by one swing state like Ohio.
The HECM reverse mortgage is a beautifully designed financial instrument that can meet a wide variety of senior needs. Unfortunately, HECMs offer so many options that selecting the best option can be a challenge.

A few months ago I was asked to write endorsement for a forthcoming book called Pound for Pound: A Story of One Woman’s Recovery and the Shelter Dogs Who Loved Her Back to Life by Shannon Kopp, and I was hesitant because my desk was overflowing with other “stuff” that needed to be done. I’m sure you all know the story — how can I possibly do any more? But, something about the book’s description caught my eye and heart, and I thought about it and then said “yes,” and I’m sure glad that I did.
No one should go through a divorce alone. You need a robust support system, consisting largely of friends and family
Soccer Without Borders Oakland graduates with their coaches on graduation day Standardized testing is one of the most heated debates in education, with President Obama recently calling for limits on the amount of time kids can spend taking those tests. The expansion of standardized testing came from a desire to ensure that every child in America is equipped with the knowledge and tools they need to be successful. Tests are a logical way to measure progress, reward “high-performance” and increase accountability.
October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. For the past 18 years, my organization, the Violence Policy Center , has published an annual study on the most horrifying aspect of domestic violence: women who are murdered by men.

Only in a world where Cosmopolitan magazine can declare the Kardashians “America’s First Family” and the multi-billionaire loose cannon Donald Trump is perceived by millions as the potential steward of our nuclear arsenal could about-to-be Speaker of the House Paul Ryan be savaged as insufficiently right-wing. This is after all a man who made his bones in Congress and the Republican Party as an Ayn Rand-spouting, body building budget-buster slashing away at the body politic like a mad vivisectionist, as well as an anti-choice, pro-gun zealot who never met a government program he liked (except the military, whose swollen budget he would increase until we are all left naked living in a national security state).
If you’re already thinking about what you need to do to prepare for the new year, kudos to you. Doing so now will keep you from feeling the time crunch at year’s end.
