Daria Musk3,830,636*Expand to read the story and learn how to join live!* Three years ago to the day, I stood in front of my computer - a guitar in my hands, songs in my heart, fingers trembling - about to press a button that said, "Hangout". I was still waterlogged with rainy nights of lugging my amps into tiny clubs and tears from the not-knowing-what-would-happen to my dreams. That night, when I hit "Hangout" you saved my dreams, you saved me. Your faces popped in. We sang all night. Six hours later my heart was six million times bigger and I would never be the same. Every year I want to celebrate that day. I want to thank you face to face. I want to meet back at our special place and sing your praises. It's time for Hangoutiversary III.  *PLEASE, BE CELEBRATED* So please, meet me on July 16th. Right here, inside the place where we had our virtual first date. Comment back and let me know that you're planning to come, I will organize special circles of you all, so we can rotate the 10 seats and meet and meet and meet again. I'll sing our songs of celebration. I'll sing new songs of adoration, to you and this crazy world that gives us a chance just when we think maybe it can't. Come with your hopes and your dreams to be amplified and your updates and your friends and families and fantasies. Let's sing 'til our throats go weak and dance in front of computer screens, like the silly beautiful people we know ourselves to be.   *HOW TO HANG* In case you're new or rusty all you have to do to join this Hangout is:   ✪ RSVP a big fat *yes* here. ✪ On Wednesday, July 16th come back to this page when the Hangout starts (6PM Eastern US Time). ✪ You can watch or click "join" to on my page @100974258168375166691! ✪ Don't for get to comment and let me know if you want to join and around what time.

Last night while you were sleeping, the Senate debated and ultimately passed a budget resolution that provides a pathway for Republicans to strip health care coverage away from 30 million Americans without having a single Democratic vote.

The Senate voted 51 to 48:

1. To end coverage for preexisting conditions, veterans benefits, and aid to rural hospitals.

2. To remove discrimination protection for women in healthcare.

3. Against the provision allowing children to remain on their parent's insurance till the age of 26.

4. To cut off funding for the Child Health Insurance Program (CHIP).

5. Against ACA contraceptive coverage and maternity care provision.

6. To direct committees to send budget legislation to defund and repeal the Affordable Care Act.

This Cat Comes To University Every Day To Help Students With Cuddles

Every university needs a cat like this.

“Caring about the students is the main goal of the Campus cat besides sleeping, sleeping, sleeping...Also the cat walks all around the campus to really see all students from every faculty. A lot of students say Campus Cat helps to relax or chill before tests, papers, exams.” The ginger is always there. And he has a home, too, and is well cared for! He just really wants to take some pressure off the students’ chests. Good kitty!"

6. To direct committees to send budget legislation to defund and repeal the Affordable Care Act.

For those who get health insurance through work, no pre-existing conditions. Lifetime caps for coverage are back for everyone.
Real and disastrous actions are being taken that will affect more than just the 20-30 million people who will lose their health care coverage and the 3 million people who will lose their jobs. Despite their assertions of this being an action to "repeal and replace," no viable alternative plan has been proposed.___Great job, enjoy the playoffs and sports while this is happening.

Gotta test this theory though I get a similar effect when I use Ghee, clarified butter.

Brown butter blows the already great taste of butter out of the park. When you brown butter, you’re not browning the butter as a whole, only the milk solids. As you brown, the milk solids break down into smaller, tastier molecules that vary in flavor from toasty, nutty, sweet, floral, and butterscotchy. The smell alone is intoxicating and worth making this recipe for.___Gotta test this theory though I get a similar effect when I use Ghee, clarified butter.

We need to try this simple Japanese recipe.

Recipe: Otoko-koroshi don or The Man-killer Rice Bowl

This sardine rice bowl is especially simple and bears a slightly frightening name. The Otoko-koroshi don – “The Man-killer Rice Bowl” – is named after a dish that was featured in novelist Yoko Mori’s essay, You’re What’s for Dessert (Dessert wa Anata). It’s said there isn’t a man alive that can finish the whole thing.

Japanese cooks proved that wrong pretty quickly. If you’re brave enough to try it, all you’ll need are a can of sardines, green onions, soy sauce, cooking sake, and rice. Here’s Cookpad user Kyoko0007‘s recipe, which she says is a big hit with her family:

1. Empty a can of sardines into a frying pan and turn on the heat.
2. While the sardines are frying, chop up some green onion.
3. Add a tablespoon each of soy sauce and cooking sake when the sardines are heated through.
4. Finally, put some steaming rice into a bowl and top it off with three sardines and green onion.

Good article about Shakespeare's identity.

" It’s at this point in the story that Wolfe discovered “the smoking gun”. In the Brooke-Dethick feud, it becomes clear that “Shakespeare, Gent. from Stratford” and “Shakespeare the Player” are the same man. In other words, “the man from Stratford” is indeed the playwright. Crucially, in the long-running “authorship” debate, this has been a fiercely contested point. But Wolfe’s research nails any lingering ambiguity in which the Shakespeare deniers can take refuge.

Wolfe is circumspect about making extravagant claims. Speaking carefully, she says that her manuscript discoveries fill in gaps, illuminating Shakespeare’s character. “They point to someone actively involved in defining and defending his legacy in 1602, shortly after his father’s death.”

For Wolfe, it’s Shakespeare the man who breaks cover here. “He’s defending his legacy not only as a playwright but, most importantly to him, as a gentleman.” The derogatory references to arms belonging to “Shakespeare ye player”, she says, show that “he’s playing the same game as everyone else in the period, purchasing land in Stratford to support his case to ‘ancient’ gentility, rather than through his astonishing professional success”. "___Good article about Shakespeare's identity.

Putin's view of the current situation.

Russian aggression? Putin: "check the military maps"
very worthwhile to re-read Fontana;s's long interview. Putin's view, crystal clear, verifiable policies - unable to find this raw material in our daily 1% MSM establishment pages. 'Putin wants to expand' they say? Check the actual source about diverse topics, and ask yourself who can you trust. About Ukraine:

"...let me tell you something else now, and you can decide for yourselves what to publish and what to leave out.

What are the roots of the Ukrainian crisis? Its cause seems to be completely disproportionate to what has become an utter tragedy today claiming many lives in southeast Ukraine. What sparked the crisis? Former President Viktor Yanukovych said that he needed to think about signing Ukraine’s Association Agreement with the EU, possibly make some changes and hold consultations with Russia, its major trade and economic partner. In this connection or under this pretext riots broke out in Kiev. They were actively supported both by our European and American partners. Then a coup d’état followed – a totally anti-constitutional act. The new authorities announced that they were going to sign the Association Agreement but would delay its implementation until January 1, 2016. The question is: what was the coup d’état for? Why did they need to escalate the situation to a civil war? The result (delayed implementation) is exactly the same.

What is more, at the end of 2013 we were ready to give Ukraine $15 billion as a state loan supported by a further $5 billion via commercial banks; plus we already gave it $3 billion during the year and promised to cut gas prices by half if they paid regularly. We were not at all against Ukraine signing an Association Agreement with the European Union. But, of course, we wanted to participate in the final decisions, meaning that Ukraine was then and is still now, today, a member of the CIS free trade area, and we have mutual obligations as its members.

How is it possible to completely ignore this, to treat it with utter disrespect? I simply cannot understand that. The result that we have – a coup d’état, a civil war, hundreds of lives lost, devastated economy and social sphere, a four-year $17.5 billion loan promised to Ukraine by the IMF and complete disintegration of economic ties with Russia. But Russian and Ukrainian economies are very deeply interconnected.

The European Union unilaterally removed its customs duties for Ukraine. However, the volume of Ukraine’s sales to the European market did not grow. Why not? Because there is nothing to sell. There is no demand in the European market for Ukrainian products, either in terms of quality or price, in addition to the products that were already sold before.

We have a market for Ukraine, but many ties have been severed unilaterally by the Ukrainian side. For example, all engines for our combat helicopters came from Ukraine. Now deliveries have stopped. We have already built one plant in St Petersburg and another plant will be completed this year, but the production of these engines in Ukraine will be shut down because Italy, France or Germany don’t need and will never need such engines. It is impossible for Ukraine to divert its production in any way; it will need billions in investment to do this.

I don’t understand why this was done. I have asked many of my colleagues, including in Europe and America, about it.

Paolo Valentino: And what do they answer?

Vladimir Putin: The situation got out of control. ..."

and much more (if you read all the western plethoric you understand we are amidst powerful morons who simply never check reality nor reconsider the veracity of their grave stupidity___Putin's view of the current situation.

Wish we were like Norway, Sweden or Denmark.

America has a lot of history of in-fighting amongst ourselves and our ability to deceive ourselfs into thinking that if we can just work ourselves to death, our lives can get better .. you know ... the "American Dream" ...that we all can be Donald Trump or Bill Gates if we just worked hard enough. But that just can't happen .. for every one Bill Gates, there has to be thousands of those little guys who work 40+ hours at minimum wage. That has to happen in order to have a income difference between a the very rich and the every day worker.

But our minds fool ourselves ... we don't increase taxes on the rich .. it's not fair ... because we feel that one day, we too can become rich.

We don't take care of the poor ... because we've deluded ourselves into thinking that the poor are just not working hard enough.

It's a mental thing. .... same stuff, thought about differently. Like beer ... some attitudes think of beer as a simple good beverage ..then the American attitude is that you drink to get drunk.

Norway has it right, the U.S. has it wrong. I can't imagine we'll ever fix it.

A pants company made a video of Pablo Escobar. There's a Spanish version of Narcos in Netflix, which is a much better and truer version of Pablo Escobar.
