Friday round-up

Coverage and commentary on President Donald Trump’s expanded list of potential Supreme Court nominees continues. NPR’s Nina Totenberg examines how some of the new candidates differ from those on previous iterations of the list. “While the previous three lists included just one elected politician and no administration officials, this list includes three U.S. senators — all fire-breathing conservative Republicans,” Totenberg reports. “All three have, directly or indirectly, criticized Chief Justic...

Pet microchipping bill heads to governor, but other animal welfare efforts come up short

Only one of three bills championed by animals rights groups emerged from the California Legislature this year, a session where the COVID-19 pandemic hung over Sacramento like a wet blanket. On Gov. Gavin Newsom’s desk, awaiting a signature, is a bill requiring all Fluffies and Fidos to be microchipped before leaving animal shelters and rescues. “Honestly, we’re long overdue for this bill to be law,” said Judie Mancuso, founder, CEO and president of Social Compassion In Legislation, which pushed ...

Activists blockade major cleanups at homeless encampments

Activists set up blockades this week along Los Angeles-area streets to resist comprehensive sanitation operations that they contend displace people from their tent homes and makeshift shelters, despite public health guidelines that advise against dispersing homeless encampments during the COVID-19 pandemic. Protesters targeted clean-up operations scheduled around shelters in Hollywood and Van Nuys, where one person was arrested during a clash between protesters and more than a dozen police offic...

NBA players are the most powerful employees in America — and they know it

The NBA is a labor force. Mark J. Terrill/AP Images NBA players made history on Wednesday, when a sudden "wildcat strike" in protest over police violence brought the league's restart, and playoffs, to a sudden halt.The history of the league shows a willingness by players to strike since the 1950s, but activism has never been as common or pronounced as in the Black Lives Matter era.The league, Disney, and ESPN have billions riding on the conclusion of the season, and the players know the lev...

Isaac Stern Was Really Famous. So Why Has His Star Faded?

A century after his birth, Stern is no longer nearly so well remembered as Bernstein, whose posthumous celebrity remains undiminished. By contrast, Stern is essentially unknown to Americans under the age of 60, very few of whom listen to classical music. Moreover, he is increasingly known to older music lovers less for his playing than for his ancillary activities, among them his coaching and encouragement of such protégés as Itzhak Perlman, Pinchas Zukerman and Yo-Yo Ma; his groundbreaking 197...

Cops lie constantly

Police officers lie in arrest reports, court testimony and internal investigations. The lie to suspects, to victims, to judges and to one another. They lie pervasively in the course of their work, a volume of deception enabled by prosecutors, police unions, departmental policies and the lack of government oversight. When they are caught, discipline is so unlikely or mild that nothing changes. When they are sued, the taxpayer foots the bill, not the department. So what, asks Mark Joseph Stern, ca...

California Lawmakers Were Globetrotters Before Pandemic

SACRAMENTO (AP) – It was a different era for California lawmakers before the coronavirus pandemic: business-class flights to Japan, stays at 5-star hotels and dinners with local politicians in the name of promoting economic ties. In February, the Japanese government paid to host six California Assembly members in Tokyo and Fukushima. Between city tours, officials were briefed on Olympics preparedness for the now-postponed event and were wowed by the country’s transit system. Being a California l...

'Looking at an Alien Sky': New Horizons Probe Sees Stars From a New View

Long-time Slashdot reader JoeRobe writes: Space.com and other outlets are reporting on new pictures of Wolf 359 and Proxima Centauri sent back from New Horizons. The images show clear parallax between the view from Earth and from the spacecraft 6.9 billion km away. In effect, New Horizons is looking up at a visually different star field than we are... NASA has even created stereoscopic pairs to get a 3D view. "It's fair to say that New Horizons is looking at an alien sky, unlike what we see fr...

Whicker: Donald Sterling documentary shows limited power of Clippers’ voices

The best, most concise and most truthful NBA documentary of the year is called “Blackballed,” and it celebrates the sacking of Clippers’ owner Donald T. Sterling. It also terrifies all viewers, near the end of its 11th episode (of 12) when it points out that the MVP in this tale wasn’t necessarily Adam Silver, Chris Paul or Doc Rivers. The star of the show is actually a rudimentary tape recorder. Without it, Sterling’s reptilian presence might still be front and center, even at age 86. The Last ...

In the interview, Stern says that Trump "despises" his supporters and would be "disgusted" by them. What a surprise!

Author Scott Turow talks new novel ‘The Last Trial,’ hints at his next legal thriller

Scott Turow is back, and not surprisingly, so is Sandy Stern. The brilliant defense lawyer character, who is 85 and feeling every one of those years in “The Last Trial,” has almost always made an appearance in all nine of Turow’s books set in Kindle County, his fictional Midwestern creation. Turow, who had studied and taught writing at Stanford University before becoming a lawyer, essentially invented the literate legal thriller in 1987 with “Presumed Innocent.” That novel told the twisty story ...

By Liz Ohanesian Jehan Izhar was feeling stressed and “angst-y.” Izhar, owner of The Stage Global fitness and performing arts studio in Pomona, was thinking about her business and about the ongoing COVID-19 social distancing measures. “Usually, you can go out and get rid of that energy by going out in public,” she says by phone. “You go to the gym. You go to the bar. You go hang out with your friends. But all those coping mechanisms are gone.” Instead of leaving the house, Izhar put on a 1980s J...

But what could you learn instead?

The other day, I was talking to a friend in college. He was complaining about a lousy class he was taking, one that was now significantly worse because it was online. I asked why he was even taking it, and he looked at me like I was nuts. He’s in it for the education, not the learning. A colleague, recently graduated from a famous college, told me about the regime of clickers, used to make sure that students actually come to class and don’t fall asleep while they’re there.

Helping Others Can Help You Cope with Lockdown

It’s easy to feel, these days, that we’re swirling in a coronavirus-induced vortex of helplessness. In many regions, COVID-19 case counts are jumping dramatically. Health care workers face impossible decisions about who to disconnect from ventilators. And those of us who remain well must comply with “stay at home” orders, which anchor us in place as the needs of people around us keep growing. Our first instinct may be to hunker down and protect ourselves and our immediate families. But to get ...

LA could be told to stop throwing away large items belonging to homeless people

Los Angeles could be ordered to stop enforcing a law now used by the sanitation department to remove and toss away bulky items stored at homeless encampments, following a tentative decision issued this week. An advocacy group, Ktown for All, and several individuals who are homeless sued the city of Los Angeles in July 2019, contending that law, municipal code 56.11, has resulted in belongings getting seized and destroyed unconstitutionally. The suit contended that homeless individuals have lost ...

Dancer In The Dark: Did Intensive Study Of Butoh Drive A Young American Woman To Suicide?

Sharon Stern was a vivacious, popular, hard-working actor when she enrolled in the MFA program at America’s first Buddhist university. There she met Butoh master Katsura Kan and became his ferociously devoted disciple. That ferocity of devotion — to her teacher, to the art form and the idea of loss of self behind it — concerned her parents, her friends, and ultimately Kan himself. When Stern killed herself, her parents blamed Kan and sued him for wrongful death. – The New Yorker
