Given the money and political power stacked against him, Fetterman says he needs Sanders’ help to have any chance next Tuesday, the same day as the Pennsylvania presidential primary. So far, however, it has not been forthcoming. There’s been no endorsement, no fundraising support, no joint appearances. Fetterman’s campaign finds this confounding. On the ground, he says, there’s enormous overlap between his supporters and the Sanders grassroots. (“The crowd at the Fishtown brewpub is young, liberal, urban. They rave about Sanders—and Fetterman,” says a recentPhiladelphia Inquirer story.) In a three-way race, he believes, Sanders’ backing could be decisive; Fetterman estimates that he’ll win if he gets 60 or 70 percent of Sanders’ voters.

The evidence is now clear: Exercise is excellent for health, but it's not important for weight loss. The two things should never be given equal weight in the obesity debate.

In the midst of our shock and anger over this entire situation, I got a couple of writers, who are also CASTLE fans and reviewers and we came to the conclusion that Stana Katic deserved so much better than this. So these are our thoughts over this unfortunate, heartbreaking news:

In photography, your success is based on not only your skill, but your business practices and ambition. There will always be more to learn, while complacency will ensure your irrelevance. You will often work 16+ hour days, sometimes for very little pay, sometimes for free. There will be intense highs—I find that work in this industry tends to come in waves—and extreme lows. It will be 20 percent work and 80 percent hustle, and you will deal with a lot of assholes to boot.

A spokesman for the Greensboro Coliseum, where Springsteen and his E Street Band where scheduled to play April 10, said the cost of losing Bruce amounted to $100,000 in lost ticket sales...$68,000 in lost sales from 10,000 tickets to Cirque du Soleil, and $20,000 for 1,500 tickets to Boston.
The cancellations also result in lost shifts for hundreds of part-time workers who were scheduled to work the shows. This includes the 600 people who would have worked Springsteen's show and the 225 people who would have worked the seven shows of Cirque du Soleil.
In addition, the concessions company Spectra Food Services & Hospitality loses its opportunity to make $20,000 from the three events, and would have employed 20 to 60 workers for each event, according to Greensboro Coliseum.

The Little Chef was over-run with a 40-strong crew for the Scoop Films production as well as many onlookers who had extended their service station stopover to watch.
One onlooker said: ‘We were watching Greg Wise film a scene and then suddenly Eric Clapton arrived at the petrol station. It was very funny because we all thought he was there to be part of the film, but then a police car pulled up. Eric had to sit in the front seat with the policeman. He was in there for ages and was clearly getting a good telling off — either that or the copper was asking him about his favourite tracks.
‘By the end Eric was apologising profusely. I’ve no idea how fast he had been going, but maybe he was pleased to just be getting a speeding ticket and not something more serious.’

Two years ago, when Chobani received a loan from TPG Capital, a private equity firm, the company’s value was estimated at $3 billion to $5 billion. At the $3 billion valuation, the average employee payout would be $150,000. The earliest employees, though, will most likely be given many more shares, possibly worth over $1 million.

Rich Lake, lead project manager, was one of the original group of five employees Mr. Ulukaya hired for the plant in New Berlin. Mr. Lake said on Tuesday that he did not expect Chobani shares to change his life much. “I’m not one for living outside my means,” he said.

Rather, he said, the shares are an acknowledgment of what he and the other employees have put into Chobani.

“It’s better than a bonus or a raise,” Mr. Lake said. “It’s the best thing because you’re getting a piece of this thing you helped build.”

Radical Cartography has a cool interactive #map showing the rise of #slavery from 1790 to 1860.
--
Mapping slavery presents a number of difficult problems. The vast majority of maps — both old and new — use the county as the unit of analysis. But visually, it is tough to compare small and large counties; the constant reorganization of boundaries in the west means that comparisons across decades are tricky, too. And like all maps that shade large areas using a single color, typical maps of slavery make it impossible to see population density and demographic breakdown at the same time. (Should a county with 10,000 people and 1,000 slaves appear the same as one that has 100 people and 10 slaves?)

Sen. Sanders should not drop out of the Democratic primary. He has a message that is too important for voters not to hear. Bernie Sanders should spend the coming weeks using his national platform to rally the American people against income inequality, the greed of Wall Street, and the billionaires who are trying to buy the government. However, it looks like Sen. Sanders has virtually no chance of winning the nomination.

Nowhere in his statement does Bernie Sanders mention winning the Democratic nomination. Instead, he is focused on shaping the agenda at the Democratic convention. The Sanders rationale for staying in the race is that he wants to gather as many delegates as possible so that he and his supporters can have a strong voice in shaping the party’s platform.
In other words, after a good run, Bernie Sanders is admitting that he can’t win the Democratic nomination.
The Sanders campaign should stay in the race until the end. Sen. Sanders has good ideas about fighting economic inequality and the billionaires who are trying to buy the government.

It's not just the environment; at some point the demand for electricity slows.
-----
In the face of the slowest economic growth in a quarter-century, electricity demand has fallen so sharply in China that some coal-burning power plants are operating only 40 or 50 percent of the time. Construction of wind turbines and solar panels has also eaten slightly into the market share of the coal plants.
Yet in China’s highly regulated power industry, market signals are weak, and planning and construction of new power plants had continued apace, pushed forward by local governments eager for the construction jobs and expanded tax base. With its new decrees, the central government seems to be trying to halt the development of power plants that might well be underused if they were built.

I've just been IM'ing with a friend about this week's episode, and there are a couple of logic issues. Here's the biggest one:
How did some of the plane's passengers wind up in boats in the water, but that chunk of fuselage ended up on that beach, and many more walker passengers even farther from the water over that hill?
I would think that if the plane broke up over water, spilling passengers, it's extremely unlikely anyone would have survived that fall. And the fuselage could not have washed up on the beach, it would have sunk.
Opinions?

Now, after a sabbatical from the studio “coming to terms with health issues and getting older,” Ms. Sherman, 62, has produced her first new photos in five years. They are more explicitly about herself than ever before — images that confront what aging means to a woman. In the series, which starts May 5 at Metro Pictures gallery in New York, she plays the veteran leading ladies of cinema’s Golden Age, turning herself into avatars of Gloria Swanson, Greta Garbo and others in their twilight years.

Elleithee says there are two ways to go — graciously or lashing out.

"It's a dangerous place to be in," Elleithee said, "and you've got to keep your head about you and remember what it is you're fighting for. That doesn't mean you have to get out, but it does mean you need to kind of keep your focus in the right place."

Keep in mind, in the Obama era, the deficit has shrunk by $1 trillion. That’s “trillion,” with a “t.” As a percentage of the economy, the deficit is now down to just 2.5%, which is below the average of the past half-century, and down from 9.8% when the president took office.

To capture this iconic image the astronaut/photographer used a 70-millimeter Hasselblad camera with an 80-millimeter lens. It was virtually impossible to tell who on the Apollo 17 crew actually took the photograph—Eugene Cernan, Ronald Evans, or Harrison Schmitt—all of whom took many photographs with the Hasselblad cameras aboard the spacecraft during the mission. More recent analysis credits Schmitt with the photo, but it cannot be determined for certain.

To capture this iconic image the astronaut/photographer used a 70-millimeter Hasselblad camera with an 80-millimeter lens. It was virtually impossible to tell who on the Apollo 17 crew actually took the photograph—Eugene Cernan, Ronald Evans, or Harrison Schmitt—all of whom took many photographs with the Hasselblad cameras aboard the spacecraft during the mission. More recent analysis credits Schmitt with the photo, but it cannot be determined for certain.

"People see the world through our eyes," says Ponomarev. "I attended a conference on refugees once. The speakers were all about numbers and statistics, and I could tell no one there had ever seen these refugees. My speech was the last one that day — and the photographs I showed simply bowled the audience over." _Photography is a universal storytelling language, he says. "People don't need to know a foreign language to understand photographs."
Arguably, photography is losing its power to change the course of events. No longer can it stop a war like it could in the 1960s and 1970s, says Ponomarev._

With absolutely no experience, you’ll build your own pinhole camera, take a photograph and even upload your photo to a gallery on the Worldwide Pinhole Photo Day’s website. Learn more about this old, but not outdated, process. It might take a moment to adapt from any Instagram tendencies, but by the end of the workshop, guests will have a foundational understand of the process and the materials to continue to experiment at home.

“There does come a point when Democrats, and those who believe we can’t afford a Trump or Cruz presidency, should recognize that we need to start thinking about what’s best for the presumptive nominee going forward,” said Gov. Jack Markell of Delaware, a Clinton supporter whose state holds its primary on Tuesday. “The good news is that Bernie Sanders will remain in the Senate, where he can continue to speak out and continue to inspire new people into the process.”

Sanders campaign manager Jeff Weaver announced that not only will Bernie Sanders stay in the Democratic Party for life, but he will also support Hillary Clinton if she is the Democratic nominee.
Mark Halperin asked Weaver, “If Sen. Sanders is not the nominee, will he stay in the Democratic Party forever now?”
Weaver answered, “Well, he is a Democrat. He’s said he’s a Democrat, and he’s going to be supporting the Democratic nominee, whoever that is.”
Halperin followed up, “But he’s a member of the Democratic Party now for life?”
Weaver said, “Yes, he is. Yes, he is.”

March was also the 11th consecutive month to set a record high for temperatures, which agencies started tracking in the 1800s.
With the release on Tuesday of its global climate report, NOAA is the third independent agency — along with NASA and the Japan Meteorological Association — to reach similar findings, each using slightly different methods.

Sanders did notch a few notable victories in high-turnout primaries, but it would be cherry-picking to focus only on primaries. Sanders has mostly won caucuses, which have produced the lowest turnout rates of 2016 across the board. And while Sanders did win the handful of states where Democratic turnout increased over 2008, these increases were tiny, casting doubt on how significant an accomplishment this is.
The statement contains some element of truth but ignores critical facts that would give a different impression, so we rate it Mostly False.

The unintended consequence is that by criticizing Clinton for the fundraisers, Sanders opened the door to an examination of how little he is doing to help Democratic candidates get elected in House and Senate races in 2016. By his own admission, Sen. Sanders has raised money for Democratic candidates in the past but has done nothing for the party that he wants to lead in 2016. Sanders isn’t raising money to help Democrats take back the House and Senate this year, and the increased turnout that he has touted as responsible for his victories has been exposed by PolitFact as largely a myth.

Given the money and political power stacked against him, Fetterman says he needs Sanders’ help to have any chance next Tuesday, the same day as the Pennsylvania presidential primary. So far, however, it has not been forthcoming. There’s been no endorsement, no fundraising support, no joint appearances. Fetterman’s campaign finds this confounding. On the ground, he says, there’s enormous overlap between his supporters and the Sanders grassroots. (“The crowd at the Fishtown brewpub is young, liberal, urban. They rave about Sanders—and Fetterman,” says a recentPhiladelphia Inquirer story.) In a three-way race, he believes, Sanders’ backing could be decisive; Fetterman estimates that he’ll win if he gets 60 or 70 percent of Sanders’ voters.

"If your workflow depends on making videos with Creative Cloud, perhaps you would be better off using a Mac until this is sorted out."
Which is ironic given that QuickTime is an Apple product, and Apple has decided not to fix these issues.

#YouTube is rolling out a number of changes to its platform today, which will allow anyone with a 360-degree camera to live-stream events.
The new feature on YouTube could be an important stepping stone to taking immersive video mainstream. The launch is timed to coincide with this weekend's #Coachella music festival, where some performances will be live-streamed in 360 degrees for the first time.
It's the first service to launch 360-degree live-streaming and arrives alongside the launch of spatial audio on YouTube, which promises to blast sound from all directions "just as in the real world".

The truth about the accomplishments of Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders can, and are being twisted, stretched, and omitted in effort to make each look better or worse. Many titles I see these days about our Democratic candidates are sensationalized, mean-spirited, exaggerated and/or blatantly false. The thing is, our liberal sites and social media networks reach millions. We can disgrace ourselves to the country and resort to Tea Party/FOX tactics — or we can do this thing right. I’m not talking about political correctness. I’m searching for responsibly to the truth. Somewhere in my life, someone told me, “When you hear something negative about someone, consider the source.” As Liberals, Progressives and Democrats most of us know, way down deep, we know — #WeAreBetterThanThis

Verizon has shown a remarkable lack of interest in expanding its Fios high-speed Internet network, despite strong demand.

But why doesn’t Verizon want to invest? Probably because it doesn’t have to: many customers have no place else to go, so the company can treat its broadband business as a cash cow, with no need to spend money on providing better service (or, speaking from personal experience, on maintaining existing service).

And Verizon’s case isn’t unique. In recent years many economists, including people like Larry Summers and yours truly, have come to the conclusion that growing monopoly power is a big problem for the U.S. economy — and not just because it raises profits at the expense of wages. Verizon-type stories, in which lack of competition reduces the incentive to invest, may contribute to persistent economic weakness.

The hard work is to draft a bill that your co-legislators can get behind, in the political climate that exists and in the place where you work. I concluded that Sanders was less interested in actually accomplishing anything than he was in staging protests where he could claim some kind of moral high ground, not interested in getting in the weeds and doing anything to actually achieve his goals within the Congress he worked in.This research put Sanders’ supposedly pristine progressive agenda in perspective: it is very easy to maintain that agenda if you never make the hard choices necessary to get things done. Classic protester — yet handily collecting his $200,000 pay check and his lifetime of benefits while doing little to enact actual progressive policies to improve people’s lives.
