J.K. Rowling Helps Astrophysicist School Troll On Climate Change Science
Huffington Post - 6 months
Someone get this troll some ointment, because he just got seriously burned. Twitter user @gary4205 picked a virtual fight on Monday with astrophysicist Dr Katherine J Mack after she tweeted her expert opinion on climate change. But it didn’t end well for him, after the respected Australian scientist shut him down with a killer reply that many other tweeters endorsed, including Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling. The existence of Twitter is forever validated by the following exchange. pic.twitter.com/f3TciHPFFh — J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) August 16, 2016 “The existence of Twitter is forever validated by the following exchange,” the British writer posted alongside a screen grab of the exchange Tuesday. It’s now going viral. The brief “discussion” between Mack and the troll began when the University of Melbourne-based astrophysicist posted this on the micro-blogging service: Honestly climate change scares the heck out of me and it makes me so sad to s ...

Fade Away
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Six months ago, it would have been a sucker's bet. A serious climate plan from the province of Alberta, Canada? Sure... and Senator James Inhofe is about to swear off snowballs to find work as a solar panel installer. Are we talking about the same Alberta that sits on top of the world's largest known reservoir of tar sands oil? For Alberta to cut back on tar sands would be like the Koch brothers fighting over who gets to ask Hillary Clinton to the prom. But as we just saw in Paris when 195 nations signed the most important climate agreement in history, the world is changing. No longer can a rational person look at Alberta's tar sands without also seeing how dangerous this gargantuan "carbon bomb" is to our climate. When the entire world is challenging itself to cut carbon emissions, extracting and burning tar sands oil starts to feel like conspicuous combustion. And so, last November 22, the new premier of Alberta, Rachel Notley, announced a new climate action plan that, for the firs ...

'The Originals' Recap: 'Girl In New Orleans'
MTV News - over 3 years
by Ryan J. Downey It goes without saying that recaps are full of spoilers, but this week, it bears repeating. There be some doozies up in here. Last night's episode of "The Originals" gave us two deaths that turned out to be fake outs, new revelations about Klaus' little baby hybrid in the making, some mysterious players on the hunt for Hayley, much of Cami's backstory, the supernatural ninja-like return of Elijah, and Klaus' possession of Marcel's secret weapon, a.k.a. Davina The Teenaged Witch (that's gonna become a thing, right?). And somewhere in there, Rebekah wore a corset in a mix of dreamworld/telepathy/flashback/fan-fiction (er, wait, maybe that's just me on the last part...), one of Marcel's right-hand guys expressed some frustration with the tyrannical bossman, and we met a powerful un-compellable vervain-swallowing priest whose church was the site of a grisly massacre and who has a tense alliance with Marcel. Charles Michael Davis shares Joseph Morgan's talent ...

Huffington Post - over 3 years
TORONTO - CN Rail's (TSX:CNR) strong and swift response to the derailment of a fuel-laden train in Alberta shows how anxious the company is to quell safety concerns as more dangerous goods travel by rail, experts said Sunday. The railway company dispatched its top brass, led by Chief Operating Officer Jim Vena, to handle the crisis after 13 cars carrying crude oil and liquefied petroleum gas came off the tracks and caught fire early Saturday west of Edmonton. Within less than 24 hours, the company had publicly apologized for the disruption, while stressing the vast majority of its cargo arrives safely without incident. "They have their COO out there, they've apologized, they're keeping everybody informed — that's all really good stuff," said Michael Davis, managing director of the Vancouver consulting firm Reputations. Story continues after slideshow "The reason is they're terrified they're going to pop up... above the radar and all of a sudden they're going to start getting all ...

'Ironside,' 'The Originals' new dramas on TV
San Francisco Chronicle - over 3 years
The pilot tells us how Ironside lost the use of his legs through a series of flashbacks showing him getting shot while on a case with his partner, Gary Stanton (Brent Sexton, "The Killing"). The character exposition is set against the supposed suicide of a beautiful young woman who had worked in an investment firm. Good supporting castUnderwood is OK, if a little too hungry to chew the scenery, but the supporting cast is very good, including Sexton as the other "victim" of the shooting, who feels guilty for not having his partner's back; TV's busiest character actor, Pablo Schreiber ("Orange Is the New Black"), as one of Ironside's team; Spencer Grammer ("Greek") as brainy and beautiful cop Holly; and Kenneth Choi ("House") as the captain whose primary job is to tell Ironside to follow the rules. The Originals" is about actual vampires, not to mention witches and hybrids - that would be a werewolf-vampire mix, not a Toyota Prius - and it's a spinoff from another CW hit, "The Vampire ...

Michael Davis, D.C. Hammer Attacks Suspect And Brother Of 2 NFL Players, Faces More Than 15 Gov't Witnesses In Upcoming Trial
The Huffington Post - over 3 years
WASHINGTON — District of Columbia prosecutors plan to call at least 15 witnesses in the trial of a man charged in a series of random hammer attacks last year, according to a letter sent this week to his lawyers. One of the witnesses is prepared to testify that 20-year-old Michael Davis, the younger brother of NFL players Vernon and Vontae Davis, was not taking medicine for a psychiatric illness at the time of the attacks in late April 2012, prosecutors wrote. Another witness responsible for giving Davis his medication could not remember administering the drug over the course of several days, including on April 24, when authorities say Davis fatally attacked a man visiting from Colorado.

Darryl Woodard: Outland Sci-Fi Remake, What's The Hold Up?
Huffington Post - over 3 years
In just the past few weeks I've found out the classic science fiction film Outland was slated for a remake. Then afterwards I checked further info about the remake of the film that starred Sean Connery, which all pertaining articles seeming to corroborate two facts. One, that Director Michael Davis who directed Shoot 'Em Up with Clive Owen was to helm the sci-fi remake as mentioned in the article, SHOOT 'EM UP's Michael Davis to Direct OUTLAND Remake by Charles Mihelich. And two, all sources of info that originally announced the remake were all seemingly dated on August 19, 2009, coming up on four years ago! Which now has to make me wonder, has Michael Davis been channeling his inner Stanley Kubrick? The late legendary Director Stanley Kubrick is to this day well known for directing long film shoots. A good example is the classic sci-fi film he directed, 2001: A Space Odyssey. Originally titled Journey Beyond The Stars in a press release for MGM on February 23, 1965, the sc ...

Janet Tavakoli: President Obama's Elevator
Huffington Post - over 3 years
In 2004, Barack Obama became the freshman U.S. senator for Illinois by winning the vote -- including mine -- by a landslide. So it was with high hopes that I set off on July 16, 2007, for a presidential campaign contributors' breakfast speech in the office building where the Obamas first met. A friendly crowd of mostly-male business-types assembled dressed in dark-colored suits. I stood out in a bright plum colored blouse and happened to be seated directly in (then) Senator Obama's line of sight. Unlike the rest of the breakfasters, I took notes on a bright yellow legal pad. When it came time for questions, mine was the first hand up. Senator Obama saw my hand, looked away, and looked back again. Finally, another hand went up and he took that question and other questions, but he never took mine (on Iran), despite the fact that I kept raising my hand. One man quipped: "You intimidated the next president of the United States!" But the evidence only shows that he didn ...

The CW is just days away from airing the "Originals" pilot, but you can get a first look above. The "Vampire Diaries" spinoff -- set to air as a backdoor pilot on Thursday, April 25 at 8 p.m. ET -- sees Klaus (Joseph Morgan) head to New Orleans and connect with his protégé Marcel (Charles Michael Davis). At the end of the most recent episode of "The Vampire Diaries," Klaus received a letter from Katherine (Nina Dobrev), which explained that there was a witch in the Big Easy plotting against him.

"Welcome to the dark side of New Orleans, where the living are easily lost and the dead stick around to play," a mysterious man tells Klaus in the promo.

    More Details Hide Details The Washington Star was highly critical of an African-American lawyer legally challenging the District's Dual school system when the principal of Noyes School refused to admit Mike Davis at five years of age, stating that the District citizens had long accepted separate schools for blacks and whites and that the suit brought by John P. Davis would cause even deeper divisions in the nation's capital. The U.S. Congress, in response to John P. Davis's suit, appropriated federal funds to construct the Lucy D. Slowe elementary school directly across the street from his Brookland home in the neighborhood of Washington, D.C. Davis attended the Fieldston school in New York, New York.
