    AFP via TheLocal.ch ^ | 22 October 2017 15:33 CEST+02:00
    The head of the World Health Organization on Sunday reversed his decision to name Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe as a goodwill ambassador, following widespread uproar. “Over the last few days, I have reflected on my appointment of H.E. President Robert Mugabe as WHO Goodwill Ambassador for (Non-communicable diseases) in Africa. As a result, I have decided to rescind the appointment,” the head of the UN agency, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, said in a statement. […] Tedros had announced the appointment earlier this week during a speech in Uruguay, where he praised Zimbabwe as “a country that places universal health coverage and...

    Former NFL player Albert Haynesworth accused his ex-girlfriend, former basketball player Brittany Jackson, of repeatedly physically abusing him and calling him racial slurs in a string of tweets today. TMZ reported that Haynesworth tweeted in response to Jackson’s accusations that he wasn’t paying child support for their son, although TMZ doesn’t say where those accusations came from—none of Jackson’s social media accounts made any reference to that as of Wednesday night, and TMZ doesn’t refer to any court records. Haynesworth labeled his tweets “The Ugly Truth about Brittany”:

    Kathy Griffin says that she is no longer sorry for disseminating a photo of her holding up a severed, bloodied head resembling President Donald Trump's. Griffin spoke with an Australian television show where she was asked about the controversy, and said she was not sorry for it. The fallen comedian blamed her career downfall on Trump supporters, despite the fact that Democrats, including a self-described friend, actress Debra Messing, and Chelsea Clinton condemned the photo

I’m only the messenger of this giant’s downfall, who no doubt touched us all. Rapper Shawty Lo has died in a car accident in Atlanta.

Walker leaves behind 11 children from 10 different mothers. He made headlines in 2013 when the television network Oxygen announced a special about the rapper...

    The following is 'an' essay on Luke 21, as relating to The Rapture of Believers and Jesus's Prophecy for Jerusalem. Another thread is stuck where this would have been posted as a response. I'll ping the freepers who might have interest. The essay is long, so it will be divided into to posts, the body of the thread then the body of comments. Before setting to this post, I listened repeatedly to Matthew 24, Mark 13, and Luke 21, having gone to bed listening to Matthew 24 from the Andrew Scourby reading of the King James Bible.

    He has won praise from a neoconservative magazine editor, taken star turns on HBO and “This American Life,” and likened President Trump’s political ascendance to that of Adolf Hitler. Just months into his second term, Representative Seth Moulton has demonstrated a knack for drawing attention. Now he is stirring speculation that he could run for higher office in three years — not just the US Senate, the frequent path of congressmen, but for the White House, a direct route from the House to the top job not taken since James A. Garfield in 1880.

    Philly.com ^ | Ellen Gray
    I am so over TV news’ obsession with the big “gets.” Maybe Megyn Kelly should be, too. In her first few weeks anchoring NBC’s Sunday Night with Megyn Kelly, the former Fox News host has made headlines for drawing Russian president Vladimir Putin to the interview chair and for attempting, at least, to introduce conspiracy peddler Alex Jones to a wider audience. With an average of just 3.5 million viewers, the news magazine edition featuring the segment on Jones came in behind reruns of CBS’s 60 Minutes and ABC’s America’s Funniest Home Videos, and was down slightly from the 3.6...

Larry Wilmore In late February 2016, the host of Comedy Central's now-canceled "The Nightly Show" joked about then-candidate Donald Trump: “I don’t want to give him any more oxygen.

    NEW DELHI (AP) -- India has reported three cases of the Zika virus for the first time, including two pregnant women who delivered healthy babies. Health Ministry officials said Sunday that the three patients in western Gujarat state had recovered. "There is no need to panic," Dr. Soumya Swaminathan, a top health ministry official, told reporters. The World Health Organization said in a statement released Friday that the three cases that India reported to the WHO on May 15 were detected through routine blood surveillance in a hospital in Ahmadabad, Gujarat's capital. Two cases were detected in February and November...

    Zbigniew Brzezinski, the hawkish strategic theorist who was national security adviser to President Jimmy Carter in the tumultuous years of the Iran hostage crisis and the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in the late 1970s, died on Friday at a hospital in Virginia. He was 89. His death, at Inova Fairfax Hospital in Falls Church, was announced on Friday by his daughter, Mika Brzezinski, a co-host of the MSNBC program “Morning Joe.” Like his predecessor Henry A. Kissinger, Mr. Brzezinski was a foreign-born scholar (he in Poland, Mr. Kissinger in Germany) with considerable influence in global affairs, both before and long...

As the cash-strapped U.N. health agency pleads for more money to fund its responses to health crises worldwide, it has also been struggling to get its own travel costs under control. Despite introducing new rules to try to curb its...

    More than a decade ago, actress Allison Janney played White House press secretary C.J. Cregg on the NBC drama The West Wing. So it's not shocking that Samantha Bee borrowed that character for the opening skit of her "Not the Correspondents' Dinner" special on TBS on Saturday night. In this skit, Janney ripped into a cartoonish right-wing media full of urine-drinkers, teenage Breitbart staffers, and redneck uncle bloggers. JANNEY: Yes? You're 18 in your father's suit, obviously from Breitbart. TEENAGER: Yeah. Doesn't having a female host for this dinner demonstrate a clear anti-white male bias? [Fist-bumps another white guy.] JANNEY:...

    Mathematical model of a 'TARDIS' takes the 'fiction' out of science fiction Summary: After some serious number crunching, a researcher says that he has come up with a mathematical model for a viable time machine: a Traversable Acausal Retrograde Domain in Space-time (TARDIS). He describes it as a bubble of space-time geometry which carries its contents backward and forwards through space and time as it tours a large circular path. The bubble moves through space-time at speeds greater than the speed of light at times, allowing it to move backward in time.

    Actress Patricia Arquette, an outspoken critic of President Trump, says climate change is the one issue really keeping her up at night. It's "something we can't turn back the clock on," Arquette said Monday night in Washington, D.C. “Dismantling the [Environmental Protection Agency] and rolling back all these climate regulations … we’re going to pay a huge price for that." “I’m concerned with legislation, but I at least hope we can change that again. But as far as climate change, there’s no negotiating the devastating effects of disregard and destruction at that level,” she added. Arquette was one of four...

    The new series of Doctor Who will see the Time Lord joined by his first openly gay companion. Bill Potts's sexuality will be revealed pretty much straightaway in her second line of dialogue when the show returns to BBC One on 15 April. "It shouldn't be a big deal in the 21st Century. It's about time isn't it?" Pearl Mackie, who plays Bill, told the BBC. "That representation is important, especially on a mainstream show." She added: "It's important to say people are gay, people are black - there are also aliens in the world as well so watch out...

    Conservative commentator Tomi Lahren is not coming back to The Blaze, where she hosted a daily show on the conservative website's network. The decision, outlined in a published report, to permanently pull her comes less than a week after The Blaze suspended her without providing a reason. Lahren ignited anger from some conservatives for saying on "The View" that she believes in abortion rights and calling conservatives hypocrites.
