America: You're Wrong About San Francisco
Huffington Post - 9 months
Before I lived here, I shared the stereotype that many Americans have of San Francisco, that it is run by pushover liberals. Lo and behold, I have come to learn this stereotype is wrong. San Francisco is run by Dirty Harry, enabled by ambitious liberals who care more about the next office they can attain than the people of San Francisco. Abundant evidence makes it clear that it is currently impossible in San Francisco to call 911 and have peace of mind that the officers who respond will be free of racial bias and ethical. To be fair, many, perhaps most, SFPD officers are fine, but there is an overarching cultural problem with SFPD that allows bad officers to act without accountability. As a San Francisco citizen, voter, taxpayer, homeowner, small business owner, mother and daughter, I find this situation unacceptable. In all the other places I have lived- even New York City with NYPD's challenges- I have never felt that I could not have confidence in the police. De ...

VIDEO: I’m Disappointed in Gov. Romney – He Stooped to ‘Dirty Harry’ Reid Tricks
Fox News - about 1 year
Mitt Romney doesn’t know what’s in Donald Trump’s tax records. But through innuendo, he did to ‘The Donald’ what Harry Reid did to him in 2012 – and that’s disappointing. Watch my “Off the Record” comment from last night’s ON THE RECORD and sound off. The post VIDEO: I’m Disappointed in Gov. Romney – He Stooped to ‘Dirty Harry’ Reid Tricks appeared first on Gretawire.

'Men Explain Lolita To Me'
Huffington Post - about 1 year
It is a fact universally acknowledged that a woman in possession of an opinion must be in want of a correction. Well, actually, no it isn’t, but who doesn’t love riffing on Jane Austen? The answer is: lots of people, because we’re all different and some of us haven’t even read Pride and Prejudice dozens of times, but the main point is that I’ve been performing interesting experiments in proffering my opinions and finding that some of the men out there respond on the grounds that my opinion is wrong, while theirs is right because they are convinced that their opinion is a fact, while mine is a delusion. Sometimes they also seem to think that they are in charge, of me as well of facts. It isn’t a fact universally acknowledged that a person who mistakes his opinions for facts may also mistake himself for God. This can happen if he’s been insufficiently exposed to the fact that there are also other people who have other experiences, and that they too were created equal, with certain i ...

Guns, Violence and Video
Huffington Post - about 1 year
30,000 hours of this has an impact Another mass shooting. Another round of the usual comments from politicians, police, TV personalities, blah blah blah. More gun control. Mental illness. Our prayers go out. Always the same platitudes, but always nothing changes. Clearly, there is something wrong. According to the Washington Post, there are now more guns in America than there are people. But the issue is not really about guns. Switzerland has nearly as many guns, on a per capita basis, as America, but they just don't experience the kinds of mass shootings that have become, quite literally, a daily occurrence in American society. Clearly, something else is at work here. Something that makes us an inherently violent society. For the past 50 years, Americans, more than anyone else, have been engaged in a rather unique and national sociological experiment -- the results of which, I think, are starting to show now. Beginning in the late 1950s, Americ ...

Follow ScreenCraft on Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube. "You’ve got to ask yourself one question. Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?" -- “Dirty” Harry Callahan The one word that rings true in so many conversations with successful screenwriters, actors, directors, producers, and beyond, is luck. They attribute luck as the overall deciding factor in much of their success. There's truth to it for sure. Being at the right place, at the right time, with the right person is often the common factor in nabbing that first big screenwriting assignment, being cast in that pivotal role, getting financing for that breakthrough debut film, etc. The sad fact is that this notion ...

Jeffrey Gundlach, on his year as new ‘King of Bonds’
Reuters.com - about 2 years
By Jennifer Ablan When Bill Gross shocked the investment world on Sept. 26 by storming out of Pimco, the most prominent bond investor in the world didn’t stop leaving people stunned. It was later revealed by Reuters that Gross had paid an unlikely visit to his fiercest rival: Jeffrey Gundlach. For two decades, the two had no relationship or interaction at all, even though their personas were intertwined, compared and contrasted often in the financial media and by other bond market players. (Morningstar named Gross “Fixed Income Manager of the Decade” in 2010, an award for which Gundlach was a finalist. Then in 2011, Barron’s magazine anointed Gundlach as the new King of Bonds.) Gross not only unexpectedly departed his firm for under-the-radar Janus Capital but also considered joining Gundlach’s DoubleLine Capital. Gundlach said the so-called “Dream Team” didn’t work out but “you never know what will happen in the future.” Overall, the gesture by Gross officially affirmed the inve ...

Philip Seymour Hoffman: As great as Bogart?
Salon.com - about 3 years
I saw Philip Seymour Hoffman less than two weeks ago at Sundance, genially taking audience questions from the stage after the premiere of Anton Corbijn’s film “A Most Wanted Man,” in which Hoffman plays a German counterintelligence agent in present-day Hamburg, trying to use a Chechen rebel to reel in a major financier of terrorism. The movie’s a mixed bag, but Hoffman is its heart, soul and intellect, giving a burdened, brooding, intensely physical performance as a Teutonic-bureaucrat version of Dirty Harry, a decent man who finally becomes aware he’s trapped by indecent circumstances. At the end of the film, Hoffman’s character leaves a car running in the middle of a Hamburg street and simply walks away. Continue Reading...

How Campbell McLaren Spun UFC Into the American Cultural Milieu
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
In the 20 years since its inception, the UFC has transformed from a cage-fighting spectacle into one the most lucrative sports franchises in the world. But long before the world embraced the UFC, Semaphore Entertainment Group (SEG) Executive Producer Campbell McLaren thrust mixed martial arts into the American media spotlight, launching the Ultimate Fighting Championship amid a campaign of controversy. With only six months to create, develop, brand, and promote the inaugural Ultimate Fighting Championship, held on November 12, 1993 at Denver's McNichols Arena, McLaren and SEG went on the media offensive, borrowing from acclaimed media philosopher Marshall McLuhan, who famously coined the phrase "the medium is the message." For McLaren, the medium of controversy was the perfect vessel for his message of no-holds-barred pugilism, and soon slogans and taglines like 'banned in 49 states' and 'there are no rules' captured the nation's attention. "There were no rules for the marketing of ...

Emotions Analytics to Transform Human-Machine Interaction
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Our devices are quite smart. They know what we type and touch, what we say and where we are; they even know how we look like, but they are quite clueless when it come to how we feel and what we mean. This still-absent bond between humans and machines is also the chief theme of the Gartner's 2013 Hype Cycle for Emerging Technologies, suggesting "machines are becoming better at understanding humans and the environment -- for example, recognizing the emotion in a person's voice. "We all agree that human emotions are complicated, and arguably, the human voice might be the most personal and revealing "emotional designator." But currently, this is still the next big revolution waiting to happen -- the most important, non-existing interface out there. Or is it? We all know that words alone don't always tell the whole story. No doubt to truly understand we need to reach beyond the verbal. In many cases, it's not what we say, but how we say it. We know this intuitively, and studies in neurop ...

A Touch of Sin or the Turin Horse
Huffington Post - over 3 years
You may reconsider your views on gun control after seeing Jia Zhangke's parable of modern China A Touch of Sin. It's as if you gave Stockman, the crusading doctor of Ibsen's An Enemy of the People, Dirty Harry's .44 magnum. At least that's how the film starts. Dahai (Wu Jiang), a local crusader against corruption (who bears some resemblance to Ai Weiwei), walks around with a blood splattered face after he rids his world of corruption. Nietzsche purportedly came upon the site of a horse being beaten on the streets of Turin and was so traumatized that he never wrote again. Zhangke is plainly drawn to thugs and violence as a metaphor for the violence of the broken social contract that is contemporary China, but also because of its esthetic possibilities. Blood runs throughout the movie like the drip in a Pollock. The director recapitulates this famous scene from Nietzsche, albeit to a different end. After Dahai kills the horse beater, the horse is seen wandering confusedly, pulling its ...

Clint Eastwood's 27-year-old son Scott Eastwood may have matinee idol looks, but he's happy to stay out of the spotlight and lead a normal, chill life. In fact, a source tells Us, "He's very laid-back." "He lives in San Diego in a beachfront house. He's very humble," the source adds of the actor, who recently posed in a fashion spread for Town & Country's October issue.

Clint Eastwood's Wife Dina Eastwood Files For Legal Separation In California
Huffington Post - over 3 years
LOS ANGELES, Sept 10 (Reuters) - The wife of actor-director Clint Eastwood has filed for legal separation after 17 years of marriage, her attorney said. Attorney C. Michael McClure said he filed the petition on Monday on behalf of Dina Eastwood in Monterey County Superior Court in Northern California. McClure declined to comment about why Dina Eastwood, 48, a former television journalist, had filed for separation or if she would eventually seek a divorce. The Eastwoods married in 1996. A representative for Clint Eastwood, 83, was not immediately available for comment. Eastwood rose to fame a gunslinger in "spaghetti Westerns" such as "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" in the 1960s and as tough cop in the 1970s "Dirty Harry" movies. He won best director and best picture Oscars for the 1992 Western "Unforgiven" and the 2004 boxing drama "Million Dollar Baby." His most recent movie was 2012's "Trouble ...

Tim Wise: Racism, Injustice and Explaining America to My Daughter
The Huffington Post - over 3 years
You remember, forever and forever, that moment when you first discover the cruelties and injustices of the world, and having been ill-prepared for them, your heart breaks open. I mean really discover them, and for yourself; not because someone else told you to see the elephant standing, gigantic and unrelenting in the middle of your room, but because you saw him, and now you know he's there, and will never go away until you attack him, and with a vengeance. Saturday night, and I am writing it down so that I will not forget -- because I already know she will not -- my oldest daughter, who attained the age of 12 only eleven days ago, became an American. Not in the legal sense. She was already that, born here, and -- as a white child in a nation set up for people just like her -- fully entitled to all the rights and privileges thereof, without much question or drama. But now she is American in the fullest and most horrible sense of that word, by which I mean she has been tr ...

Andy Ostroy: Critical Points About the Trayvon Martin Case
Huffington Post - over 3 years
As Yogi Berra once famously said, "It's deja vu all over again." That's precisely the feeling I get about the trial of George Zimmerman, who prosecutors have charged with second-degree murder in the February 26, 2012 death of 17-year-old black youth Trayvon Martin. It's the Johnny Cochran Magic Glove Circus Part 2 and, I fear, with the same ultimate outcome. There's a few key points that need stressing, as I believe they speak to the heart of this case and why it's painfully clear to anyone with half a brain in their heads that Zimmerman, like O.J. Simpson, appears to be a ruthless, unrepentant killer. Critical fact #1: Zimmerman was an armed adult, in a car, who was instructed by a 911 dispatcher to stay put and not pursue Martin, an unarmed kid. In his own statement to police the night of the shooting Zimmerman wrote, "The dispatcher told me not to follow the suspect and that an officer was in route." His attorneys can muddy the waters with all their 'if it don ...
