Seth Meyers Takes Aim At The Trump Administration's 'Alternative Facts'
Huffington Post - 29 days
Seth Meyers called out President Donald Trump’s administration for openly lying on its first full day in office. On Monday night, the “Late Night” host denounced Kellyanne Conway, advisor to Trump, for trying to argue that White House press secretary Sean Spicer did not actually lie during his weekend press briefing, but instead just presented “alternative facts.” “Kellyanne Conway is like someone trying to do the Jedi mind trick after only a week of Jedi training,” Meyers said. Meyers stressed the importance of exposing seemingly inconsequential falsehoods, such as Trump’s claim that his inauguration turnout was the biggest ever. “These may seem like small lies, but the small lies inoculate us against bigger lies,” said Meyers. “They make facts a matter of partisan debate, rather than accepted, shared reality. It may be crowd sizes now, but soon much bigger decisions will come when reality will matter.” The late night host also had some ...

Rachel Carson doc tells the environmentalist's inspiring life story
Yahoo News - 30 days
Before Rachel Carson became the mother of the modern environmental movement, she was stuck in a job that paid the bills but left her restless. A new documentary revisits Carson's days as an information specialist for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in the 1930s and '40s, where at first she filed mundane reports about the agency's conservation work.  It was in that role that Carson learned about DDT — a potent pesticide that farmers sprayed indiscriminately over their crops. Carson exposed the chemical's widespread environmental damage in her groundbreaking 1962 book, Silent Spring.  SEE ALSO: Hawaii's bees are now protected under U.S. Endangered Species Act Her work inspired President John F. Kennedy to launch the first U.S. investigation into the public health risks of pesticides, which later prompted policymakers to create new safeguards for protecting the environment.  The PBS documentary Rachel Carson draws on the biologist's own writings, letters and recent scholarship to tell ...

On a very overwhelming inauguration day, Twitter is abuzz over — you guessed it — a distinct piece of outerwear. Kellyanne Conway wore a red, white and blue Gucci coat (which can be yours for $3,600, if you're interested) to Friday's inauguration festivities. In a brief interview with NBC, she described the piece as "Trump revolutionary wear." Turns out, Twitter thinks it's pretty, uh, revolutionary, too.

High Fashion's Excuse For Not Carrying Extended Sizes Is SO Tired
Huffington Post - about 1 month
If you caught Aidy Bryant on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” Wednesday, you may have only stopped briefly to admire her Tanya Taylor dress for its sparkle and excellent design, because she was mostly dazzling us with a story about passing out in her apartment hallway after an “SNL” cast party. You may not have thought there’d be reason to give the dress any thought at all. But apparently, you’d be wrong. Glamour released “The Full Story Behind The Size 18 Dress Tanya Taylor Made For Aidy Bryant,” Thursday, in which the glossy explained that upon learning “no high fashion designer had ever offered to make ‘Saturday Night Live’ star Aidy Bryant a red-carpet dress in her size (18), Glamour asked New York-City designer Tanya Taylor to create a dress to wear at an upcoming event.” It’s a beautiful dress, and Taylor is a fabulous designer ― her wares have been worn by the likes of Michelle Obama and Olivia Munn.
