*EXAMINER – FROM THE INDEPENDENT CENTER:

If your politics lean right, you likely didn’t hear that the DOJ was a driving force behind President Trump’s child separation policy.

If your politics bend to the left, you probably didn’t hear that one of the arrested suspects in the plot to kidnap Michigan Gov. Whitmer, previously posted that Trump was an “enemy” and a “tyrant”.

*DISASTER – VIEWERSHIP FOR NBA FINALS FINALE CRASHES NEARLY 70%

On a night when the NBA broadcast its most important game, you would think that the league would own the night. That, once again, turned out to not be the case. The viewership numbers for the sixth and final game of the NBA Finals are in, and they are atrocious. Game 6 drew, at its peak, 6.028 million viewers. To put that in perspective, Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals, which included a team from Canada and did not include LeBron James, drew 18.34 million viewers. Those figures represent a 66 percent drop. The heavy viewership losses are consistent with disastrous viewership numbers from the first half of the series when games one through three drew consecutive, historically low numbers. Indeed, the low numbers are consistent with an entire season of bad television viewership performances. The NBA restarted its season, after a five-month hiatus due to the coronavirus, by making social justice messaging and imagery a centerpiece of their television broadcasts. That messaging was greeted with historic drops in ratings, drops largely due to fan dissatisfaction with the overtly political nature of the games.

*NEVER ENDING – STATUES OF LINCOLN AND ROOSEVELT PULLED DOWN WITH CHAINS IN PORTLAND:

Two statues of Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt in Portland, Oregon, have suffered a now-familiar fate after being torn down by protesters late Sunday night and daubed in red paint. According to KATU News, a gathering of protesters in the southwest of the city was declared a riot by police after the statues were targeted. Earlier in the night, Portland Police said protesters had been caught trying to pull down a statue with a chain, and warned that they would use tear gas and “impact weapons” if the gathering didn’t disperse. The warning apparently fell on deaf ears as police later declared a riot, and photos published by KATU showed that the two statues had been pulled to the ground.

*NYT’S BRET STEPHENS TORCHES COLLEAGUE NIKOLE HANNAH-JONES’ ‘FAILED’ 1619 PROJECT

New York Times opinion writer Bret Stephens criticized colleague and racial injustice reporter Nikole Hannah-Jones’ landmark 1619 Project in his latest column, saying that points made within it were “illogical.” The project argues for readers to reimagine 1619 as the country’s birth year rather than 1776 due to the contributions made by slaves. Stephens argues that the impact of decisions made in 1776 outweighed those of 1619. While praising the project’s ambition, he wrote that “for all of its virtues, buzz, spinoffs and a Pulitzer Prize…the 1619 Project has failed.”

“It [the project] issued categorical and totalizing assertions that are difficult to defend on close examination,” Stephens wrote. “Virtually every writer in the project seems to sing from the same song sheet, alienating other potential supporters of the project and polarizing national debate.” Stephens mentions other critics’ issues with the project’s transparency, objectivity, and accuracy. Hannah-Jones pushed back on Stephens’ criticism, arguing that the case for making 1619 the country’s “true” birth was “always a metaphoric argument” and not intended to be taught to students.

*DEMENTIA RISK TIED TO PERSONALITY: ANXIOUS, MOODY PEOPLE MORE PRONE TO BRAIN DISEASE

As we age, the countless cells and neurons in our brains can come under attack from harmful tangles and plaque build-ups. This interference is the common cause of dementia, which destroys the memory and thinking abilities of many seniors. While scientists continue to work on treatments for dementia, a new study finds your personality may be the best weapon you have. Researchers at Northwestern University say anxious and moody people are more susceptible to the affects of brain damage later in life. A review of patient brains donated to science finds certain people can still function at a high level despite having the same neuropathology of someone suffering from cognitive decline. Reviewing annual psychosocial surveys these patients took before their deaths, researchers discovered individuals with a greater tendency for self-discipline, organization, diligence, high achievement, and motivation fight off the causes of dementia better than others.

This personality, known as having a high level of conscientiousness, shows a link to better resilience against memory and thinking problems. On the other hand, patients who experience anxiety, moodiness, impulsivity, and generally worry more have less cognitive function before their deaths. “These findings provide evidence that it is possible for older adults to live with the neuropathology associated with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias while maintaining relatively healthy levels of cognitive function,” lead study author Eileen Graham says.

*COLIN KAEPERNICK CALLS FOR ABOLISHING POLICE AND PRISONS IN NEW ESSAY SERIES:

The series titled “Abolition for the People: The Movement for a Future Without Policing & Prisons” is a partnership between Kaepernick Publishing and the Medium publication Level that builds on a rich tradition of Black organizing and freedom-fighting, according to the website. “Over the next four weeks, we will publish 30 essays from political prisoners, grassroots organizers, movement leaders, scholars, and family members of those affected by anti-Black state violence and terrorism,” Kaepernick wrote in the debut essay titled “The Demand for Abolition” that was published on Tuesday. The essays will focus on several themes, including police and policing, prisons and carcerality, and abolition of police instead of reform. The former NFL quarterback explained what each of the categories means and what it will encompass in the series.

*KENTUCKY MAN FOUND GUILTY OF CANNIBALISM MURDER:
 

A Kentucky man was convicted Friday in the horrifying cannibalism murder of his ex-girlfriend, the Louisville Courier-Journal reported. Joseph Oberhansley now faces life in prison for stabbing Tammy Jo Blanton, dismembering her, and eating part of her organs six years ago. When he was found in the Jeffersonville house, Blanton’s body was in the tub and her skull and bones were on a plate near a frying pan. Oberhansley initially confessed—then rejected an insanity defense and claimed at trial that two intruders were responsible.

*CHIEF PEACEKEEPER, SCOTT LEVIN, GETS CERTIFIED IN
“THE BETTER APART METHOD”:


Renowned attorney-mediator, Gabrielle Hartley, recently published a phenomenal book titled ‘Better Apart’ and she has taken to teaching a course to divorce professionals titled by the same name. This week founding partner and Chief PeaceKeeper, Scott Levin, took this course and became certified by Ms. Hartley. “I believe greatly in the benefits of continuing our education and to help improve our skills.

Gabrielle Hartley is a warm and caring guide who can help you compassionately part from your partner. Whether your separation is amicable, or your ex is combative, “Better Apart” is aimed to help you find peace, calm, and hope. Blending practical advice from a legal perspective together with spiritual wisdom, Gabrielle is an expert and realist who has created a simple five-step process that uses original meditations, perspective-shifting exercises, and fresh suggestions to help navigate the common legal and emotional pitfalls of divorce. Gabrielle’s insight of practices and exercises are accessible for all. She shows you how to meaningfully shift your mindset and to move forward though any—or all—parts of the emotionally fraught process. Scott Levine concludes, “I feel that I am now better able to help clients start on the road to divorce in a positive manner and to help them reframe disputes and conflict with a positive slant. This will help us improve the results for our mediation clients.”

WHAT’S UP with Sarah Garcia:


  *** Millions of youths were sequestered in their apartments and basements, unemployed, without school, and worried over their career prospects. Many simply wanted to vent their rage at the world and almost everything in it. The media romanticized the “summer of love” unrest and downplayed the violence. Newspapers ran bizarre photo essays on the chic garb at the protests — umbrellas, leaf blowers, wooden shields, armor, and colored bike helmets. Many in the street seemed as interested in taking selfies as they were in smashing windows.

*** Mathew Sanders of Los Angeles, 30, has spent the summer bouncing between his full-time sales job and rallies in L.A. County against police shootings of people of color. He has found a community of like-minded people who’ve made attending protests part of a weekly routine, in a wave of activism against police brutality that has continued into the fall in L.A. and across the country. “I think it’s become part of a lifestyle for many people who have lost employment or who are working the gig economy,” said Shannon Thomas, 28, a conflict resolution consultant who has driven to the South L.A. protests from Santa Monica. “If we’re working 24/7 on our computers, what are we going to do that feeds our souls? This has been like church for me.”

*** A teachers’ union in North Carolina is demanding sweeping benefits for illegal immigrants to lower COVID-19 cases and reopen schools. In a recent statement denouncing the school district’s reopening plan, the Durham Association of Educators (DAE) called for universal healthcare, as well as guaranteed income regardless of a person’s immigration status.

*EXAMINER – HEALTH:
SNACK WITH CAUTION – WATCHING TV WHILE EATING PREVENTS US FROM REALIZING WHEN WE’RE FULL



Do you ever wonder how that giant bag of popcorn is empty by the end of the movie? A recent study finds snackers have a hard time realizing they’re full and wind up overeating while focusing on other things. Researchers say the more our brains lock in on something, especially watching television, the less it’s able to tell when we should stop eating. The findings offer a clear strategy when it comes to snacking while watching TV: limit yourself to a healthy portion. Trusting our gut, in this case, to tell us when to stop simply won’t do us any good. And it’s not just television that’s the culprit. Any activity that engages us will take our mind off our appetite, the study shows.

The study by the University of Sussex examines 120 people, giving them low or high-calorie drinks while completing various perceptually-demanding tasks. The British team reveals activities which require lots of attention trick many participants into overeating, even if their drink was more filling. Those engaging in highly-demanding tasks ate the same amount of snacks after their test, regardless of having low or high-calorie drinks before eating. Participants doing less-engaging activities however, are able to tell when they’ve had enough snacks.

*WOKE – PINTEREST LIMITING SEARCH RESULTS FOR CULTURALLY INAPPROPRIATE HALLOWEEN IDEAS:

Social media platform Pinterest announced that it would be limiting recommendations for Halloween costumes that could be considered culturally insensitive. The photo-sharing company issued a statement on its website announcing the move, adding that it would be prohibiting “advertisements with culturally inappropriate costumes, and make it possible for Pinners to report culturally-insensitive content right from Pins.” The platform also said that certain searches, including “Day of the Dead costumes,” will lead users to information developed by experts and Pinterest employee group PIndigenous “on how to celebrate thoughtfully and respectfully.”

*NEO-NAZI NORDIC RESISTANCE MOVEMENT TARGETS JEWS ON YOM KIPPUR:

The Neo-Nazi Nordic Resistance Movement targeted Jews in Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Iceland with antisemitic campaigns throughout the week leading up to Yom Kippur – the holiest day in the Hebrew calendar. Websites belonging to the neo-Nazi movement reported actions taken by the group in almost 20 different cities. Pictures allegedly showing the actions taken by the group show members confronting Jewish worshipers and standing in front of synagogues, antisemitic posters placed in public areas and flyer distributions in public areas. The movement wrote that it was choosing on Yom Kippur to “make the Nordic people aware of foreign customs and Zionist ruling plans throughout the Nordic region,” with posters displayed in multiple countries attacking kosher slaughter, circumcision and the custom of kaparot.

*NYC VOTERS GET ABSENTEE BALLOT ENVELOPES WITH WRONG NAMES:

  The New York City Board of Elections is blaming an outside contractor for a debacle with some absentee ballots. An unknown number of Brooklyn residents received “oath envelopes” with someone else’s name and address on them. Voters are supposed to place their completed ballot in those envelopes and seal and sign them before mailing them back or dropping them off. But signing an envelope with the wrong name would render the ballot invalid, Gothamist reports. The Board of Elections says Phoenix Graphics, the vendor that printed the ballots and envelopes, is responsible for the mistake. “We will ensure on behalf of the voters in Brooklyn that the proper ballots and ballot envelopes are in the hands of the voters in advance of Election Day so they can vote,” Executive Director Michael Ryan told Gothamist. “This problem will get corrected.”

*’NO TIME TO DIE’ DELAYED TO EASTER WEEKEND 2021 AS PANDEMIC TAKES A GRIP AT BOX OFFICE:


MGM’s No Time to Die is officially heading to April 2, Easter weekend, and vacating its November 20 release date. Interestingly enough, this puts the James Bond film starring Daniel Craig on the same weekend with Universal’sF9I hear that the latter is bound to move. Universal is providing no comment on that release date change. UPDATE: The F9 release date indeed has changed..
  “MGM, Universal and Bond producers, Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, today announced the release of No Time To Die, the 25th film in the James Bond series, will be delayed until 2 April in order to be seen by a worldwide theatrical audience.  We understand the delay will be disappointing to our fans but we now look forward to sharing No Time To Die next year,” said the studio in a statement. MGM was the first studio to foresee how the pandemic was going to stall exhibition, and jumped No Time to Die from its Easter weekend release date of April 10-12 to the Thanksgiving frame. 

*YIKES!- AVERAGE PARENT IS NO BETTER AT MATH OR SCIENCE THAN A 6TH GRADER:

How many of your childhood math or science lessons do you remember today? If the answer is barely any, you aren’t alone. A recent survey of 2,000 U.S. parents finds the average parent these days has the math and science skills of an 11-year-old. Respondents were asked what grade they would be placed in today if they had to take a placement test, and the average answer was sixth grade for both math and science. It’s unrealistic to expect anyone to remember everything they were taught in school as a child, of course. Yet the extent to which many American adults feel clueless when it comes to academics is shocking. In all, 42% say they would be “lost” trying to teach their child mathematics. Another 35% express the same sentiment regarding scientific topics.

*GAYS, LESBIANS, AND BISEXUALS AT HIGHER MIGRAINE RISK, STUDY FINDS:


Sexual minorities are significantly more likely to experience migraines than heterosexuals, according to a new report suggesting minority stress and discrimination may be the culprit. Researchers interviewed more than 9,800 adults from the ages of 31 to 42 as part of the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health. “We know stress in general can trigger migraines, and since sexual minorities experience discrimination and added stress, it seems logical that could trigger migraines.”

Just over 85 percent of respondents identified as exclusively heterosexual, 10 percent were “mostly” heterosexual but somewhat attracted to the same sex and about 4 percent identified as gay, lesbian or bisexual. (The survey did not encompass gender identity.) Gay, lesbian and bisexual participants had 58 percent higher odds of a migraine than their strictly heterosexual counterparts. The “mostly straight” participants had an increased rate of migraines equal to other sexual minorities. Migraine headaches often produce an intense throbbing pain on one side of the head, though both sides can be affected. They can last hours or even days and be accompanied by nausea, vomiting and a sensitivity to light, sound or other sensory input.

*NEW JERSEY WOMAN GAVE UP HER SON FOR ADOPTION, THEN USED HIS ‘DEATH’ FOR BOGUS GOFUNDME CAMPAIGN

A New Jersey woman is facing criminal charges after prosecutors say she tried to dupe the public out of thousands of dollars with a GoFundMe campaign seeking donations for her dead son’s funeral—the same son she’d actually given up for adoption. Holly Garcia, 33, was taken into custody in late September and now faces charges of computer criminal activity and attempted theft by deception, the Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office said in a statement Wednesday. Garcia wound up on police radar in June after a couple who had adopted her 4-year-old son alerted authorities to a GoFundMe campaign using his photo to seek $5,000 in funeral expenses after he had supposedly died of cancer, authorities said.

She is said to have created a slew of other fundraising campaigns, including one seeking assistance to care for her toddler son who was going blind in one eye, and another seeking money to buy an urn for her dead son’s ashes. Prosecutors say GoFundMe caught wind of the schemes before she could collect any of the donations. She made her first appearance in court last week and now faces possible indictment by a grand jury.

*WHAT’S UP? BY SARAH GARCIA:


  *** Author Horace Cooper said that The Bail Project is “a radical assault on our criminal justice system” that assumes poverty forces people to commit crimes. The organization’s website promotes the group as “a critical tool to prevent incarceration and to prevent racial disparities in the bail system.” “This is a radical assault on our criminal justice system,” Cooper said.

*** NBA legend Charles Barkley joined the growing chorus of sportscasters willing to bring their political views to sports coverage. However, those views are in stark contrast to what most are spitting. Barkley, a reliably unfiltered voice, was blunt with his analysis of those who would defund the police, calling them “fools on TV.”

Though lauded as an Aryan idol in Germany, Schmeling was neither political nor racist.

*MILITARY SUICIDES UP 20 PERCENT AMID CORONAVIRUS, WRS, NATURAL DISASTERS, AND CIVIL UNREST:

Military suicides have increased by as much as 20 percent in 2020 over the same period in 2019. Senior military leaders say there has also been an increase in violent behavior due to the stress caused by the coronavirus pandemic, war-zone deployments, natural disasters, and civil unrest. Some army officials say they have seen a 30 percent increase in active duty suicides and are considering shortening combat deployments to try to ease stressful situations. The Pentagon did not share official data, but the military officials interviewed by the AP say the timing of the increase and the pandemic and other disasters leaves little doubt that they are related. “I can’t say scientifically, but what I can say is—I can read a chart and a graph, and the numbers have gone up in behavioral health related issues,” Army Secretary Ryan McCarthy said. “We cannot say definitively it is because of COVID. But there is a direct correlation from when COVID started, the numbers actually went up.”

*THREE TRAYS OF MAIL, INCLUDING ABSENTEE BALLOTS, FOUND IN WISCONSIN DITCH:

Three trays of mail which allegedly included absentee ballots were found in a Wisconsin ditch Tuesday, and police are now investigating how the mail ended up there. The mail was found around 8 a.m. Tuesday morning near a highway intersection in Greenville and was quickly brought to the United States Postal Service (USPS), the Outagamie County Sheriff’s Office said. It is unclear how many absentee ballots were found and whether or not they were filled in. “The U.S. Postal Inspection Service is investigating this matter,” a spokesman for the U.S. Postal Inspection Service said.

*NETFLIX SUBSCRIPTION CANCELLATIONS SOAR AFTER ‘CUTIES’ CONTROVERSY:

Forget Netflix and chill, more like Netflix, and cancel. The mega-streaming company has seen a slew of subscription cancellations after the release of “Cuties,” amid charges that the film is tantamount to child pornography. Netflix released the movie on Sept. 9, followed quickly by a campaign by critics urging subscribers to #CancelNetflix. Three days later, cancellations increased to eight times the daily averages recorded in August. With the #CancelNetflix hashtag continuing to trend on social media, it is possible elevated churn could continue in the coming days, according to the firm,” Variety wrote, citing data from research company YipitData.Things might get worse for Netflix. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) is urging the Department of Justice to launch an investigation into Netflix’s involvement with the movie.

“The film routinely fetishizes and sexualizes these pre-adolescent girls as they perform dances simulating sexual conduct in revealing clothing, including at least one scene with partial child nudity. These scenes in and of themselves are harmful. And it is likely that the filming of this movie created even more explicit and abusive scenes, and that pedophiles across the world in the future will manipulate and imitate this film in abusive ways,” Cruz wrote to Attorney General William Barr.

*MINNEAPOLIS COUNCILLORS WHO VOTED TO DEFUND THE POLICE NOW REGRET IT:

Minneapolis shocked the country in June when the majority of its city council pledged to defund the police department in the wake of George Floyd’s death. But some of the nine council members who supported the pledge  told The New York Times they now regret it. Many activists and observers took the pledge to be literal but Councilor Andrew Johnson said he intended it to be “in spirit.” Councilor Phillipe Cunningham said the language in the pledge was “up for interpretation” and had been understood differently by each councillor. Lisa Bender, the council president, said it had “created confusion.”
  A recent spike in crime in Minneapolis has led many residents to reevaluate their support for reducing police numbers, and some told the Times they never supported the idea to begin with. Mayor Jacob Frey, who was booed out of a protest for refusing to support defunding the police, said the pledge was confusing and vague.

*EXAMINER – INVESTIGATES: PUPPY LOVE- NEW DATING SITE ‘PINDER’ CONNECTS LONELY PETS
 

  It’s puppy love at first swipe. A new relationship Web site has hit the dating market, but there’s a catch: All users must have four legs. The site, called Pinder, is a play on the widely popular dating app Tinder, but instead of swiping right or left on a potential human hookup, all of the eligible singles are pets. “We’re just taking the effective format of Tinder and applying it to the pet community,” said Pinder founder Kevin Botero. The site is new, but a quick scan of users shows a pooch named Max from Seattle dressed as a postman, a Brooklyn-based terrier named Charlie rocking a “Where’s Waldo” suit, a pig named Lucy who’s based in Austin and loves to snack on cabbage and more. While Pinder was created primarily for pet parents to hook up pals for their pooches, finding a human mate is also part of the fun.

“I personally know relationships that have come about through people walking their pets in the park, so it’s definitely possible,” said Botero, 26. “On Pinder, you’re getting that level of pet-obsessed parent you’re looking for, which in reality is somebody just like you.”Pet parents aren’t the only ones getting frisky: “Finding a dog to breed with is [also] possible.” Users start by creating profiles for their furry friends — including a photo, location and favorite snack — and can get to swiping “yes” or “no” (signified with a heart or X icon) on the cutest pups and kitties.Once a match is made, the pet parents have the option to start privately communicating with one another via social media including Facebook, Instagram or TikTok.

*EXAMINER – THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:


  In the second and final volume of his biography of Hitler, author Volker Ullrich argues that the very qualities that accounted for the dictator’s astonishing rise were also what brought about his ultimate ruin. “Hitler: Downfall, 1939-1945” arrives in English four years after the publication of “Hitler: Ascent, 1889-1939.” It’s a biographical project that consumed eight years of Ullrich’s life and “took a definite psychological toll,” he writes in his introduction to the second volume.

Like the British historian Ian Kershaw, who divided his own two-volume biography of Hitler into “Hubris” and “Nemesis,” Ullrich suggests that the Hitlerian regime was capable of only two registers: euphoria and despair. Hitler was shrewd about seizing power, but he was too restless and reckless to govern. A Third Reich that cultivated peaceful stability was simply unfathomable.
