Senate Waters Down EARN IT At The Last Minute; Gives Civil Liberties Groups No Time To Point Out The Many Remaining Problems (techdirt)

As expected, the EARN IT Act is set to be marked up this week, and today (a day before the markup) Senators Graham and Blumenthal announced a "manager's amendment" that basically rewrites the entire bill. It has some resemblance to the original bill, in that this bill will also create a giant "national commission on online child sexual exploitation prevention" to "develop recommended best practices" that various websites can use to "prevent, reduce, and respond to the online sexual exploitation ...

Lindsey Graham Uses Benghazi to Defend Trump on Russian Bounties

Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) was among the loudest Republican voices in Congress screaming about the attack on U.S. diplomats in Benghazi, Libya back in 2012. But he apparently has no problem with President Donald Trump’s decision to ignore intelligence about Russian bounties on American soldiers in Afghanistan. In fact, during a Thursday morning appearance on Fox & Friends, Graham actually used the Benghazi attack to defend Trump and accuse his Democratic colleagues of hypocrisy.After co-host ...

Comment on whole lemon meringue pie bars by Leslie

Made these for family of pie lovers and they were a fantastic hit. Based on others’ comments I didn’t add any sugar to the Graham cracker mix in crust, and cut back to 1/2 cup in the filling, and it was just perfect. Still plenty sweet. Used regular eureka lemons. Also baked on regular aluminum foil (not non-stick) and just trimmed off the excess on the sides (we didn’t need a fancy presentation). 10/10 would make again, the lemon flavor really is deeper and more complex than any other I’ve trie...

Comment on whole lemon meringue pie bars by Michellers

I made this with mixed results. Didn’t feel like washing my food processor so bashed the graham crackers in a baggie, added sugar, salt, and cubes of butter and bashed it some more until it was the right texture. Lemons were small so used 1-1/2 and I whirled the lemon mixture on high in my blender, very satisfying. Didn’t want to wash my stand mixer either so used a hand mixer on high for the meringue and it worked fine. I had issues with my overhanging parchment flopping down onto the lemon lay...

Family of black holes

Do you like holes? This perfectly unnerving image of two black holes merging in the accretion disk of another black hole is by Robert Hurt of NASA's Infrared Processing and Analysis Center. It illustrates a paper about energy flaring from merging singularities deep in space. (summarized by and Scientific American). On 21 May 2019, gravitational-wave detectors from the LIGO/Virgo collaboration picked up a possible signal from the merger of two black holes. That candidate event—which has ...

Senators Launch Full On Nuclear War Against Encryption: Bill Will Require Broken Encryption, Putting Everyone At Risk (techdirt)

Another day, another bad bill. Just as we're coming to terms with the EARN IT Act moving forward in Congress, three Senators -- Lindsey Graham, Tom Cotton, and Marsha Blackburn -- have announced a direct attack on encryption. The full bill is here. It's 51 pages of insanity that would effectively destroy privacy and security on the internet. This is five-alarm fire bad. For what it's worth, Graham is also a co-sponsor of the EARN IT Act, which makes me wonder if he's going to agree to an amend...

Alexis Ohanian has left Reddit's board in a 'long overdue' move. Here's how he launched Reddit into a $3 billion behemoth and became an outspoken activist in the tech world.

Alexis Ohanian, who cofounded Reddit in 2005, has been called the "Mayor of the Internet." He and cofounder Steve Huffman built the company over 16 months, then sold it to Condé Nast in 2006 for somewhere between $10 and $20 million. Today, the company is worth $3 billion.  Since then, Ohanian has become a venture capitalist, has helped launch two more companies, and has fought against a bill that would have stifled internet innovation.  In 2015, he met tennis superstar Serena Williams. The co...

Walter Schloss: His rules that beat the market

A nyone cited by Warren Buffett as a super-investor is worth knowing more about. Walter Schloss is one such man. Walter Schloss was born in 1916. He began working on Wall Street at aged 18, while the stock market was still recovering from the Great Crash. Schloss took investing classes from Benjamin Graham, who also taught Warren Buffett.

Race prep: Secrets of the Fasthouse Ducati Desert Sleds

Today’s ‘modern classic’ scramblers are more show than go. Stylistically, they hark back to the golden years of Californian desert racing—but you wouldn’t want to actually race one across the desert. There are only a couple of motorcycles that buck this trend, and the Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled is one of them. Even though it’s not a full-blown enduro machine, it’s surprisingly good off-road. So much so, that most reviewers refer to it as “the Scrambler Ducati should have built in the first ...

Does Senator Graham Realize that (per President Trump and the SG) His Investigation of the Russia Investigation is Unconstitutional?

Do others sense that SCOTUS has become particularly (and problematically?) quiet on sentencing matters?

As the Supreme Court finishes up a unique Term in the coming weeks, there is no shortage of "big" cases still to be resolved on topics ranging from abortion to DACA to LGBT discrimination to Prez Trump's tax returns.  But, disappointingly, we are not awaiting any big cases (or even little cases) dealing with any interesting sentencing issues or even significant criminal justice issues. This reality is partially because two cases that might have been consequential, Mathena v. Malvo on Miller's ap...

Lindsey Graham says "Joe Biden is as good a man as God ever created" in new ad

Before Lindsey Graham became a Stepford Republican, he used to bash Donald Trump and praise Joe Biden. "You want to know how to make America great again?" he once asked in 2015. To which he promptly responded: "Tell Donald Trump to go to hell." Now the old Lindsey Graham is the star of this new anti-Trump ad, created by Republican Voters Against Trump, in which Graham calls Trump a "xenophobic, race-baiting, religious bigot." According to HuffPost, the ad will run in South Carolina, North C...
