    The second part of an exclusive interview with a high ranking former Google engineer who wishes to remain anonymous reveals the Google experience for conservative employees, and a surprising approach to gender in company restrooms. The former Google engineer (alias “Arthur”), worked at Google for several years in a relatively prominent position within the company. Breitbart News questioned Arthur about the treatment of conservatives at Google and the companies internal culture, described as an “ideological echo-chamber” by recently-fired employee James Damore. Read part one of the interview here. When asked if he worked alongside many conservatives Arthur stated that there...

    Widely regarded as one of the best and most influential films of all time, Francis Ford Coppola's 1972 gangster epic The Godfather turned many of its shooting locations - as well as its lead actors - into movie icons. Visit the scenes of the crimes of the Corleone family in the US and Sicily and you'll discover that they have a few dark - or at least intriguing - tales of their own. THE CORLEONE COMPOUND, STATEN ISLAND, NEW YORK The house on New York's Staten Island where the opening wedding scenes were filmed. THOMAS GOOD/WIKIMEDIA COMMONS The house on...

    Roy Lunn created the GT40 and Jeep Cherokee, and flew in the RAF. What a blokeYou might not have heard of Roy Lunn. But you’ll certainly know his work. He’s sadly passed away at the age of 92, and in short, he’s the ‘godfather of the Ford GT40’. Ford’s words, those. Roy was born in England and worked at AC and Aston Martin – after being an RAF pilot in World War II, naturally – before moving to America in 1958 and joining Ford. He worked on all manner of exciting concepts, including a flying car. But the peak of...

In celebration of the 3rd Annual Chuck Brown Day, which is scheduled for Aug. 19, the D.C. Public Library hosted a series of workshops and screenings, including the panel discussion, “Go-Go, As D.C.

    It’s been very humid and muggy here the last few days, and I’ve wanted fresh, crisp, and cold things to eat and drink. This week’s newsletter from Lee Valley features a kicked–up Bread-and-Butter Pickle: http://www.leevalley.com/us/newsletters/Gardening/2534/Article3.htmI’ve been looking through ‘Square Meals’, a delightful book by Jane and Michael Stern which is, as the preface states, "about the friendly foods of childhood and the bygone dishes that were, not so long ago, in the repertoire of every homemaker". It's a fun book, full of vintage/retro recipes, photos and drawings; and a lot of commentary on the food habits of decades past. In...

    Hate is hate, dead is dead. We should stop politicizing bigotry and violence by demonizing some demographics and giving others a veritable pass. The demonstration by white nationalist haters in Virginia last weekend resulted from the removal a statue of confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. Confederate flag and statue controversies are raging throughout the South. Some view Confederate symbols as disgusting tributes to slave states defeated in the Civil War. Others warn against censoring symbols of a history we should never forget. On the margins are people who wish the South had won. The movement to eradicate confederate symbols began...

    A Historical Perspective On Mass Violence [by Jason Kessler] 12/6/2015 Here's a different kind of question I've often had about large scale tragedies like natural disasters, diseases & gun violence: We get so caught up in the emotion of the violence that we don't consider the long-term, historical consequences. To put it bluntly: the planet is overpopulated already. Maybe we shouldn't try to cure every disease, we shouldn't confiscate all the harmful drugs, etc. Perhaps we'd be happier if we made peace with the fact that rabid animals are going to dwindle the herd from time to time (as they...

    Actress and longtime Donald Trump nemesis Rosie O’Donnell lashed out at the president once more on Tuesday, taking to her Twitter account to say that anyone who “stands” with or “works” with Trump in any capacity is a “Nazi.”The 55-year-old comedian posted several messages on her social media account Tuesday afternoon in an apparent response to a press conference called by Trump in which the president denounced the media’s coverage of Saturday’s deadly attack at a Charlottesville political protest, at which a woman was killed and 19 others injured after a man deliberately drove a car into a crowd. “[R]epublicans...

    Chelsea Manning is making her Vogue debut. The former U.S. Army intelligence analyst, who served time in prison for leaking classified documents, will be featured in the magazine's September issue. She was photographed by the renowned Annie Leibovitz, who has taken pictures of President Barack Obama, Queen Elizabeth II, John Lennon, Michael Jackson and Caitlyn Jenner. Manning was convicted in 2013 for leaking reams of material to WikiLeaks. She was sentenced to 35 years in military prison but was released in May. Obama commuted her sentence days before he left office.

    President Trump resurrected what historians believe is an urban legend about Gen. John Pershing executing dozens of Muslim prisoners with bullets dipped in pigs' blood, telling people to read up on the history after a terror attack in Barcelona, Spain, left more than a dozen people dead Thursday. "Study what General Pershing of the United States did to terrorists when caught. There was no more Radical Islamic Terror for 35 years!" Trump tweeted after he condemned the attack and told Spain to be "tough and strong."

    Lou Tomososki was a high school teen in 1962 when his science teacher told the class about a solar eclipse that was going to take place that afternoon, NBC affiliate KGW reported. Tomososki and a friend viewed the partial eclipse outside Marshall High School in Portland. "The sun at that time, at 3:30 p.m., was in the one o’clock position," said Tomososki. "I said to Roger, 'If you stare at it long enough the brightness goes away.'" By that night, both Tomososki and Roger were having vision problems. He said the vision problems never got any worse — but they...
