Schiff, blasted by GOP after Mueller report, says oversight of Trump won’t stop

Rep. Adam Schiff faced Republican calls for him to resign Monday after the Attorney General’s letter summarizing the special counsel’s report on the 2016 election contradicted the Burbank Democrat’s claims of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Schiff stood his ground. “President Trump’s attacks on me, and those of his allies in Congress, are nothing new,” Schiff said in a statement in which the House Intelligence Committee chairman indicated the panel will continue its separate inv...

I Still Love You, the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before sequel director will now be cinematographer Michael Fimognari. The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that Michael Fimog...

Famous Actresses Lobby For Food Service Workers. Workers Say Leave Us Alone

For more than a year, a group of Hollywood actresses waving the banner of the Time’s Up movement have been pressing Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo to apply New York’s minimum wage to workers who earn tips, arguing that it would make waitresses less vulnerable to sexual harassment.

The Disney/Fox Merger Has Forever Changed Hollywood

Disney and Netflix offer the two clearest visions of Hollywood’s future. The former is a media company that’s as old-fashioned as they come, trying to make movies that will pull audiences en masse to the theater. The latter is a tech company that’s largely uninterested in the theater business but has won subscriber loyalty by offering a wealth of viewing options. As the cinema business continues to evolve, perhaps only the biggest films will survive as in-theater experiences, with streaming be...

The film 'The Day After Tomorrow' foretold a real and troubling trend: The ocean’s water-circulation system is weakening

In the movie "The Day After Tomorrow," the Earth is thrown into an ice age after ocean currents in the Atlantic Ocean grind to a halt.  That ocean current system, called the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC), is responsible for western Europe's warm temperatures. But recent research has found that the AMOC could, in fact, slow significantly if enough fresh water from melting ice enters the ocean current.  That weakened circulation could bring more extreme weather to the Northe...

The more things change, the more..........

The more things change, the more they remain the same. Yesterday during rest breaks from re-modeling my tractor/tool shed, I read a long online history of the U.S. between 1945 and 1955 by a former assistant history professor at West Point. Things were very similar then to today. A dynamic senator named Joe McCarthy began warning of the rise of socialism and communism in America, and he was very, very vocal. The current president didn't like very much, him but was not eager to fight him. Pr...
