how kavanaugh likely violated doj policies while working for ken starr
according to president trump, brett kavanaugh is an “extraordinary man” with an “unblemished record” and an “impeccable reputation.” sen. orrin hatch describes the supreme court nominee as a “person of immense integrity” who has always been “honest” and “truthful” and “very, very decent.” these two and other kavanaugh defenders argue that, because the judge’s “character and integrity” are purportedly “unassailable,” christine blasey ford’s allegations against him should be disbelieved. as the nation has repeatedly learned, such rosy character attestations are of limited value in judging the merits of an allegation of sexual misconduct against a prominent individual. furthermore, in kavanaugh’s case, reliance on claims about his “character and integrity” are all the more dubious given that a number of serious questions regarding his professional conduct remain unanswered in the wake of the senate judiciary committee’s rushed confirmation hearings. there are still substantial questions, for instance, regarding kavanaugh’s tenure as a white house staffer in the george w. bush administration. most notable among them is whether he knowingly misused materials stolen from democratic senators’ offices to further efforts to confirm several controversial bush judicial nominees and whether he lied about the matter under oath during multiple hearings. other questions regarding kavanaugh’s white house tenure could not even be mea...

bananas and blow: an anonymous music lover brought ween’s classic beach anthem to life by hiding $18 million worth of cocaine in crates of prison-bound bananas
in the music world, there are fans, and then there are fans. and as cnn reports, the anonymous music lover who paid tribute to ween’s classic summer anthem “bananas and blow” by attempting to smuggle $18 million worth of cocaine into the texas prison system in a crate of bananas is definitely a fan. the texas department of criminal justice explained the amazing tribute to america’s favorite rock band on their facebook page: for now, all the texas department of criminal justice would say was that the bananas were donated from the port of america in freeport, texas, and that an investigation was underway. (not to do the police’s job for them, but there is a rental property in nearby surfside beach known as the “banana cabana,” which seems like a good place to start.) of course, when you’re dealing with the music of gene and dean ween, judging the precise valence of someone’s appreciation can get tricky, because the songs themselves are so tongue-in-cheek. there are nearly as many ways to enjoy “bananas and blow” as there are ways to enjoy bananas and blow, so we hope the texas department of criminal justice’s cocaine-and-banana-smuggler profilers consider the possibility that this was the work of a confused jimmy buffet fan. either way, here’s the song that—thanks to one dedicated music lover in texas—has finally become a reality: if music, bananas, and cocaine be the food of love, play on!

the worst part of that putrid titans-jaguars game
the tennessee titans beat the jacksonville jaguars 9-6 on sunday in a game that should be wiped from the record books. burn the footage and make everyone in attendance sign ndas so they can’t poison the general public with descriptions of what they saw. there were no touchdowns. the only highlight came before kickoff, when titans lineman taylor lewan puked through his face mask. it’s hard to pick a worst moment, but the brutal hit to tennessee quarterback blaine gabbert was especially terrible. he suffered a concussion, and the titans replaced him with usual starter marcus mariota, who had been held out due to nerve damage in his elbow. that mariota even had to appear in the game was bad, yet he somehow managed to outduel jacksonville’s blake bortles. the jaguars quarterback stammered his way through the afternoon, passing for 158 yards on 31 throws. it was an awful affair, but it was made even worse by the baffling uniform situation. i mean, what the hell is this? the aquamarine of the jacksonville pants was similar to tennessee’s teal jerseys, and because both teams wore white as the other dominant color, the squads were nearly indistinguishable from each other during scrums. that’s confusing! it looks like a bag of gummy sharks exploded. it’s a dang trapper keeper orgy. the game was a magic eye puzzle, except there was no reward for staring at this mess for hours on end. all nfl teams have three separate uniforms, with three color options for ...

poll shows opposition to kavanaugh grows as more voters believe accuser
support among voters for brett kavanaugh’s confirmation to the supreme court is on the decline as more people believe christine blasey ford’s claims of sexual assault than his denials. a fox news poll released sunday appears to confirm the trend as it shows that 50 percent of registered voters oppose kavanaugh’s confirmation while 40 percent are in favor. that marks an increase in opposition from last month, when voters were pretty evenly split, with 45 percent approving the confirmation compared to 46 percent who were against. as could be expected, support for kavanaugh is split along party lines with 81 percent of republicans supporting the confirmation and 82 percent of democrats opposing it. significantly though, support for kavanaugh’s confirmation among independents has plunged 12 points since august. this decline in support among independents comes as more people say they believe ford. while 36 percent of voters say they believe ford’s claims, only 30 percent believe kavanaugh’s denials and 34 percent say they aren’t sure about who’s telling the truth. the fox news poll isn’t the first to show american voters are opposed to kavanaugh’s confirmation. an nbc/wall street journal poll from earlier this week found that opposition to kavanaugh’s confirmation increased nine points since last month, with 38 percent saying they’re against it and 34 percent are in favor. this marks the first time since the nbc/wsj poll began in 2005 that a suprem...

ford friend says she doesn’t recall party where alleged kavanaugh assault took place
a longtime friend of christine blasey ford named leland ingham keyser says she doesn’t know supreme court nominee brett cavanaugh and doesn’t recall attending a party with him. ford said keyser was at the party where kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when they were both in high school, but she says she has no memory of it. “simply put, ms. keyser does not know mr.kavanaugh and she has no recollection of ever being at a party or gathering where he was present, with, or without, dr. ford,” keyser’s lawyer, howard walsh, said in a statement. keyser’s lawyer wrote the statement after she was contacted by the senate judiciary committee for information about the alleged incident. “i understand that you have been identified as an individual who was in attendance at a party that occurred circa 1982 described in a recent washington post article,” a committee staffer wrote keyser earlier this week. keyser told the washington post in a “brief interview” that she was close friends with ford and believes her allegations about kavanaugh. ford herself had told the post she didn’t think keyser would remember the party since she had no reason to think anything really out of the ordinary happened there. ford’s lawyers emphasized that point after keyser’s statement to the committee became public. “it’s not surprising that ms. keyser has no recollection of the evening as they did not discuss it. it’s also unremarkable that ms. keyser does not remember attendi...

josh allen is hurdling dudes and the buffalo bills are going to win the super bowl this year
like many nfl observers, i have had some fun at the buffalo bills’ expense this season. they got blown out in their opener, their cornerback retired from the sport of football in the middle of their second game, and the team’s official twitter account thought minneapolis was in wisconsin this weekend. we’ve all had our yucks, but that’s all over now because the buffalo bills are going to win the super bowl this year. i loathe jumping to conclusions, but i have no choice because josh allen, buffalo’s rookie quarterback, is literally jumping over defenders. bad things usually happen to quarterbacks when they leave their feet like that, but allen has been airborne during much of sunday’s game against the vikings and it’s yielded superb results. it took the bills just one quarter to build a 17-0 lead over minnesota, and they’ve forced two fumbles from quarterback kirk cousins. allen, meanwhile, has been carving up the viking’s vaunted defense. is anything ever “vaunted” beyond defenses? perhaps that’s a thought for another day, as today belongs entirely to the buffalo bills. unless they blow their 24-0 second-quarter lead. but they would never do that. they’re the bills, for crying out loud. their quarterback can fly.

it’s official: kavanaugh accuser christine blasey ford will testify thursday morning
christine blasey ford will testify before the senate judiciary committee on thursday about her allegations that judge brett kavanaugh sexually assaulted her more than three decades ago when they were both teenagers. ford’s lawyers said some details still need to be worked out but that won’t prevent her from testifying. “we committed to moving forward with an open hearing on thursday sept. 27 at 10 a.m.,” ford’s attorneys said in a statement following a call with staff from the senate judiciary committee that lasted about one hour. “despite actual threats to her safety and her life, dr. ford believes it is important for senators to hear directly from her about the sexual assault committed against her,” the statement read. ford’s lawyers, debra katz, lisa banks and michael bromwich, also wrote that “important procedural and logistical issues remain unresolved.” chief among them is whether republican senators would use staff attorneys to question ford rather than do it themselves. “we were told no decision has been made on this important issue, even though various senators have been dismissive of her account and should have to shoulder their responsibility to ask her questions,” ford’s attorneys wrote. “nor were we told when we would have that answer or answers to the other unresolved issues.” ford’s attorneys also complained that lawmakers had “refused to invite other witnesses who are essential for a fair hearing that arrives at the trut...

white house wants to deny green cards to immigrants who receive public benefits
the trump administration is continuing its effort to restrict immigration, this time by proposing a new set of rules that could deny green cards to legal immigrants who receive public benefits. the new rules could affect those who receive food assistance, housing vouchers, and medicare subsidies, to name a few of the benefits that could be affected. the white house is justifying the move as a way to limit immigrants who would be considered to be a drain on the economy. but the timing also suggests the administration considers there could be an electoral upside to pushing a tough message on legal—as well as illegal—immigration. the proposal, which will be open to a period of public comment before being implemented, amounts to a rewriting of a 1999 rule. under that regulation, those receiving cash benefits have a lower chance of receiving a green card. but it didn’t take other non-cash benefits into account. the new rule would “ensure that those seeking to enter and remain in the united states either temporarily or permanently can support themselves financially and will not be reliant on public benefits,” the department of homeland security said in a news release. any changes are likely to result in court challenges. in a tweet, the american civil liberties union said the move amounted to a “new attempt to kick and keep immigrants out of our country and attack people with disabilities.” marielena hincapié, executive director of the national immigration law ...

are the allegations that cain murdered abel worth investigating, or should we blame this mysterious doppelganger i found online instead?
okay, i’ll begin laying out some information concerning god’s allegations against cain. abel may well have been the victim of a severe murdering by someone 13,000 years ago. his allegations are so vague as to such basic matters as when and where that it is impossible for cain to “prove” his innocence. but there are compelling reasons to believe his categorical denial. let’s look at one set of reasons. according to genesis, the murder occurred “in the field.” the “only other two human suspects on the planet at the time” that god has identified are adam and eve. neither of the two lived in the vicinity of a field. adam’s home was 3.6 miles away from the nearest field, eve’s 4.3 miles. here is part of joseph moxon’s 1695 “paradise. or the garden of eden. with the countries curcumjacent inhabited by the patriarchs,” showing adam and eve’s original home, the new home an angel with a flaming sword drove them to, and no fields. here is a house that is less than a half-mile from a field. street address: 216 emory st., baltimore, md. here is the field’s floor plan: the floor plan corresponds closely to god’s description of the field where the murdering took place. here’s “left field,” which is right next to “center field” and the “in field.” at the lowest point of the field, altitude-wise, is the earth. this matches god’s account of the earth “which hath opened her mouth to receive thy brother’s blood.” compare ...

andy richter gives his side of the story before the cult murder scandal breaks
lately, it seems like the news has been just one depressing scandal after another, followed by even more depressing attempts at crisis management. so it’s heartening to see andy richter take the right approach, getting out in front of the rumors with an honest, heartfelt account of what really happened: it’s another masterful performance from richter and his publicity team, who helped richter deal with the consequences the last time he got in trouble: if the weinsteins and spaceys of the world had taken a page from richter’s book and made silly jokes on television about obviously false scandals instead of actually doing horrible things to actual other people in the actual real world, they might have salvaged their careers, inasmuch as they wouldn’t have done anything wrong. congratulations to mr. richter on another narrow escape.

kavanaugh accuser christine blasey ford reaches preliminary agreement to testify thursday
minutes before a 2:30 p.m. deadline on saturday, christine blasey ford agreed that she would testify before congress next week about her claims that supreme court nominee brett kavanaugh sexually assaulted her when the two of them were in high school. lawyers representing ford wrote to the senate judiciary committee saying that their client “accepts” the request to testify but expressed optimism they would be able to negotiate conditions at the hearing. a few hours later, the senate judiciary committee and ford’s lawyers reportedly reached a tentative agreement for her to publicly testify on thursday in what the new york times characterized as “an apparent breakthrough in halting negotiations.” although there were still lots of details to work out, the concession by republicans to allow ford to testify thursday seemed to be a confirmation that they want the public session to take place. negotiations between the committee and ford’s lawyers are set to continue sunday. “dr. ford accepts the committee’s request to provide her first-hand knowledge of brett kavanaugh’s sexual misconduct next week,” debra katz and lisa banks, wrote in the afternoon message to the committee. “we are hopeful that we can reach agreement on details,” they added. “can we set up a time for later this afternoon to continue our negotiations?” the lawyers also said they were “disappointed with the leaks and the bullying that have tainted the process.” blasey’s attorne...

what is an ‘executive director of research and identity,’ and why did the los angeles clippers hire a magazine writer to be theirs?
the los angeles clippers made a most unusual offseason signing last week when the team hired sports illustrated writer lee jenkins to become their executive director of research and identity. it’s a newly invented job title for jenkins, who is best known for his engaging, soft-focus profiles of basketball superstars. jenkins is a talented feature writer, but will he make a good, uh, identity director? jenkins has a knack for getting close access to nba stars. for example, when lebron james returned to the cleveland cavaliers in 2014, he announced the move in a first-person story written with jenkins. the clippers, it seems, want to have someone in their ranks who knows how to understand players at a certain level. “[reporters] try to put it together like puzzles until we’ve formed a portrait of a person,” jenkins told espn last week. “i’m going to try to bring that same process to the clippers in hopes it will complement what their incredible group of evaluators already accomplish.” jenkins’ new title is vague and, by the sound of it, so is the job it describes. “it’s not sports psychology,” he told the new yorker’s ben mcgrath. “when it comes to identity, they’re trying to figure out where they’re headed.” he noted that the clippers are a tough squad. “there’s a culture to build around that, and there are elements of the organization at large that will dovetail with that. it won’t all be player-based. there are ways to help build a...

sean hannity warns trump not to fire “anybody” after rosenstein report: “it is all a setup”
fox news host sean hannity had a clear message for president donald trump on the bombshell report that deputy attorney general rod rosenstein suggested secretly taping the commander in chief and invoking the 25th amendment to oust him from office: don’t do anything. hannity characterized the new york times piece as a trap designed to get the president to react and turn the issue into a scandal. “i have a message for the president tonight,” hannity said on his show friday night. “under zero circumstances should the president fire anybody.” hannity, who reportedly speaks to the president regularly, said he had heard from “multiple sources” that the president’s opponents are “hoping and praying” trump gets mad and fires someone as a result of the report. “the president needs to know it is all a setup,” hannity said. “he needs to know that regardless of whether he steps in or not, and i would argue he should definitely not, the deep state tonight is crumbling from within at this very hour. they are now turning against each other.” hannity wasn’t the only one who warned trump to be careful. south carolina republican sen. lindsey graham warned in a tweet that trump needed to “beware of anything coming out of the @nytimes.” not everyone at trump’s favorite cable news channel agrees with hannity. laura ingraham, for example, quickly called on the president to fire rosenstein. but it seems maybe she’s thinking her advice over because she ...

the new york times stands by its rod rosenstein scoop
in a blockbuster story in friday’s new york times, adam goldman and michael s. schmidt reported that deputy attorney general rod rosenstein suggested covertly recording president donald trump’s conversations in 2017. according to the story, rosenstein also suggested that people at the f.b.i. interviewing with trump to be the bureau’s director could also record him. of course, trump needed a new fbi director after firing james comey on may 9. rosenstein reportedly made his suggestions in two meetings while behaving “erratically” in the following days, which the story calls “disorienting.” the story also reports that rosenstein discussed invoking the 25th amendment, which would have the cabinet remove trump from office. the piece has drawn widespread attention, in part due to rosenstein’s vehement denial to the paper and to broad fears that trump would fire rosenstein over the story, ultimately impairing special counsel robert mueller’s russia probe, which rosenstein oversees. the times story does not quote directly from anyone who attended either meeting, but it does note that the reporters spoke with people who were briefed on the conversations or on memos that arose out of them, including ones written by andrew mccabe, the then-acting fbi director who was later fired. the washington post and others have followed up on the times’ reporting, with the post quoting one person who suggested that a rosenstein comment on recordings was meant sarcastically....

six siblings of republican congressman call on voters to support his opponent
six of rep. paul gosar’s nine siblings are taking a family feud to a whole new level, starring in a series of ads for their brother’s democratic opponent in november, david brill. in the ads, tim, david, grace, joan, gaston, and jennifer gosar all speak directly to the camera and explain why they think their brother does not have the best interest of arizona’s 4th district. “if he actually cared about people in rural arizona, i bet he’d be fighting for social security, for better access to health care,” jennifer gosar says in one ad. in another ad, the siblings repudiate their brother’s views and make clear they don’t share his values. “it would be difficult to see my brother as anything but a racist,” grace gosar says in one of the ads. joan gosar, for her part, says at one point that her brother “traded a lot of the values we had at our kitchen table.” rep. gosar responded to the ads on saturday by criticizing his siblings but painting it as nothing more than a family squabble. “you can’t pick your family.  we all have crazy aunts and relatives etc and my family is no different,” he wrote on twitter. “i hope they find peace in their hearts and let go all the hate.” in another tweet, gosar also characterized his siblings who spoke up as “liberal democrats who hate president trump” and called them “disgruntled hillary supporters” who “put political ideology before family.” the tension in the gosar family became public ar...

buffalo bills twitter account announces team’s arrival in minnesota, may not know where minnesota is
it’s been a rough season for the buffalo bills. they’ve suffered two lopsided losses, their offense has looked completely out of sorts, and one of the team’s cornerbacks retired from football in the middle of a game. the bills face the minnesota vikings on sunday, and there is probably little hope for buffalo on the road against one of the league’s best teams. the rules state they still have to play the game, though the team’s official twitter account seemed a little confused as to where it will be taking place. in a since-deleted tweet from saturday, @buffalobills posted an animated map documenting the team’s business trip for this weekend’s game, which has apparently led them to the wisconsin-illinois border. geography enthusiasts will note that this is rather far from minneapolis, where the vikings actually play. the tweet announcing that “your bills have arrived” raises a few pressing questions. —are the bills actually in madison, wisconsin right now, as the helmet suggests? —if so, will they make it to minneapolis in time for sunday’s game? —the tweet says the team travelled 944 miles to get to their destination. as the crow flies, minneapolis is only 730 miles from buffalo. where the hell are they? —how did they overshoot their destination while simultaneously coming up short? —did nathan peterman pilot the plane? —should somebody call for help? good luck to the buffalo bills, wherever they may be.

watch hilary duff confront an aggressive paparazzo, simultaneously satisfying your need for celebrity news and your need to feel above celebrity news
when it comes to celebrity news, it can sometimes be difficult to keep the doublethink going. on one hand, our hunger to live vicariously through people who are richer, more talented, or better looking than we are has created a world in which the very artists whose work we ostensibly admire and celebrate are constantly harassed and made miserable by paparazzi working on our behalf to keep the photo pipeline flowing. on the other hand, it is very, very enjoyable to live vicariously through people who are richer, more talented, or better looking than we are. one way to reconcile the cognitive dissonance is to acknowledge and embrace it, so here’s some guilt-free celebrity gawking: an instagram post from actress hilary duff in which she confronts a paparazzo who creeped her out: i think we can all agree that it’s a miserable shame that there are economic incentives for someone to follow hilary duff around trying to take her picture. we can also all agree that there is a meaningful distinction between reporting that hilary duff had an unpleasant interaction with a paparazzo after going to her son’s soccer game and reporting that hilary duff showed off her baby bump at the beach. similar logic applies, of course, to the morality of reading stories about hilary duff, so here is an extremely journalistically sound transcript of the conversation hilary duff had with the unnamed paparazzo: hilary duff: … months pregnant, and i have the flu, and i’ve asked you once...

gunmen open fire at iran military parade, kill at least 25
gunmen who were disguised as soldiers opened fire at a military parade in southwest iran, killing at least 25 people and wounding around 60 others. almost half of those who were killed were members of the revolutionary guard, turning the attack into one of the deadliest ever on the elite force. civilians, including children, were also among the victims. four attackers dressed up as soldiers opened fire from behind a viewing platform during the parade in the city of ahvaz that was being carried out to mark the anniversary of the end of the war with iraq. although some reports claim all the attackers were killed, others state that three were killed after they opened fire while another was arrested. an anti-government group, known as the ahvaz national resistance, and islamic state (is) both claimed responsibility for the attack but neither of them provided any evidence to back up their allegations. iran’s foreign minister mohammad javad zarif blamed other countries in the region and their “u.s. masters” for the attack. “iran will respond swiftly and decisively in defense of iranian lives,” zarif wrote on twitter. a spokesman for the revolutionary guard specifically pinned the blame on saudi arabia. “the individuals who fired at the people and the armed forces during the parade are connected to the al-ahvaziya group which is fed by saudi arabia,” he said. if the arab separatist group is responsible it “would suggest a resurgence of separatist militancy a...

spokesman for gop on kavanaugh nomination resigns amid questions of past harassment claims
a media adviser that was working with the republican majority on the senate judiciary committee to get supreme court pick brett kavanaugh confirmed has resigned from his position after questions about claims of previous sexual harassment allegations against him. garrett ventry, 29, who served as a communications aide to the committee, stepped down after nbc news asked him about evidence that he had been fired from a previous job due to a sexual harassment claim against him. nbc reported that ventry had been fired a few months into a job as a social media adviser for north carolina house majority leader john bell in 2017. sources told nbc news that ventry had been fired because “parts of his resume were found to have been embellished, and because he faced an accusation of sexual harassment from a female employee of the north carolina general assembly’s republican staff.” ventry denied any past “allegations of misconduct” in a statement to nbc. ventry was also a former employee of crc public relations, according to politico that details how the powerful company played a key role in guiding conservative legal activist ed whelan on how to roll out a crazy conspiracy theory that was supposed to exonerate kavanaugh. whelan has since apologized and deleted the theory that he had laid out in a twitter thread. ventry began working for the committee after the federalist society called on the crc to send someone over to assist the nomination process, reports politico. ...

sean hannity tells trump not to fire “anybody” after rosenstein report: “it is all a setup”
fox news host sean hannity had a clear message for president donald trump on the bombshell report that deputy attorney general rod rosenstein suggested secretly taping the commander in chief and invoking the 25th amendment to oust him from office: don’t do anything. hannity characterized the new york times piece as a trap designed to get the president to react and turn the issue into a scandal. “i have a message for the president tonight,” hannity said on his show friday night. “under zero circumstances should the president fire anybody.” hannity, who reportedly speaks to the president regularly, said he had heard from “multiple sources” that the president’s opponents are “hoping and praying” trump gets mad and fires someone as a result of the report. “the president needs to know it is all a setup,” hannity said. “he needs to know that regardless of whether he steps in or not, and i would argue he should definitely not, the deep state tonight is crumbling from within at this very hour. they are now turning against each other.” hannity wasn’t the only one who warned trump to be careful. south carolina republican sen. lindsey graham warned in a tweet that trump needed to “beware of anything coming out of the @nytimes.” not everyone at trump’s favorite cable news channel agrees with hannity. laura ingraham, for example, quickly called on the president to fire rosenstein. but it seems maybe she’s thinking her advice over because she ...

trump vows to “get rid” of “lingering stench” at justice department and fbi
president donald trump came out swinging at a familiar target friday night, when he expressed optimism that he would be able to soon discard a “lingering stench” in the justice department and fbi. although most of the people who opposed his administration in the department have left, there are still a few bad apples left, trump said at a rally in springfield, missouri. “just look at what is now being exposed at the department of justice and the fbi … i want to tell you, we have great people in the department of justice, we have great people. these are people, i really believe, you take a poll, i got to be at 95 percent,” trump said. “but you had some real bad ones. you’ve see what’s happened at the fbi—they’re all gone, they’re all gone, they’re all gone. but there’s a lingering stench and we’re going to get rid of that too.” trump’s comments came mere hours after the new york times reported — and other outlets later confirmed — that deputy attorney general rod rosenstein had suggested the idea of secretly recording conversations with president donald trump. rosenstein also reportedly discussed the possibility of invoking the 25th amendment to remove trump from office. rosenstein has issued two statements denying the allegations. “i never pursued or authorized recording the president and any suggestion that i have ever advocated for the removal of the president is absolutely false,” rosenstein said. trump was in missouri friday...

why is autumn the only season with two names?
this article originally appeared in the fall/autumn of 2012. we've reprinted the post for the first day of the season, below. it’s the first week of fall—or perhaps i should say “autumn.” how did autumn become the only season with two names? before it was autumn and fall, it was harvest. while the modern names of winter and summer have been around for more than 1,000 years, the names of fall and spring are more recent—and less constant. this is partly because the two seasons were long viewed as secondary to summer and winter. as late as the 18th century, english speakers were less likely to think of the year as having four seasons, focusing instead on the coldest and warmest portions of the year. even when they spoke of fall, they couldn’t agree when, exactly, it took place. in the 17th and 18th centuries, dictionaries by both thomas blount and samuel johnson noted that some thought that fall began in august and ended in november, while others contested that it began in september (at the equinox) and ended in december (with the solstice). both spring and autumn used to go by different names. in the 12th and 13th centuries, spring was called lent or lenten, while fall was called harvest. in the 14th century things got a little chaotic. lenten disappeared around the beginning of the 1300s, and the later lent similarly vanished only a few decades later. (it survives, of course, as the name for a religious observance.) by the end of the 14th century there was n...

christine blasey ford’s lawyer issues scathing letter in response to judiciary committee’s deadlines
update, 12:30 a.m., sept. 22: senate judiciary committee chairman chuck grassley sent a series of late night tweets extending the negotiations for christine blasey ford’s potential testimony, ending on a familiarly rueful-sounding note: original post: the senate judiciary committee tried to initiate a friday night game of chicken with attorneys for christine blasey ford, the woman accusing supreme court nominee brett kavanaugh of sexual assault. the committee had issued a 10 p.m. ultimatum for ford to agree to testify by wednesday, stating that the vote to confirm kavanaugh would proceed on monday without her agreement. ford’s lawyers did not bite. ford’s attorney debra s. katz responded to the ultimatum with a strongly-worded letter decrying the “aggressive and artificial deadlines” as an attempt “to bully dr. ford.” katz explains that ford had “traveled to meet with the fbi for several hours about the death threats she had been receiving,” and that her legal team requested time “to be able to provide you with a well-considered response.” “your cavalier treatment of a sexual assault survivor,” katz writes, “is completely inappropriate.” committee chairman chuck grassley’s office had sent a letter to ford’s lawyers earlier on friday “providing a notice of a vote to occur monday in the event that dr. ford’s attorneys don’t respond (by 10 p.m. tonight) or dr. ford decides not to testify.” that deadline was not the first of ...

a new california bill would require better passwords for internet of things devices
in 2016, the internet broke a little. major sites like twitter, netflix, and reddit went down after being hit with the mirai botnet—malware that took advantage of routers and security cameras with poor security to cause distributed denial-of-service attacks. it was made possible because owners of the affected devices hadn’t updated the factory-default usernames and passwords. in 2017, there were about 20 billion connected devices worldwide, according to statista, which projects that that number will be more than 75 billion by 2025. more gadgets are inundating our living rooms, more internet of things device–based attacks are occurring; three times more such attacks have happened so far this year than in all of 2017, channelnomics reported. now california is considering legislation that would institute stricter password security for the network of smart physical devices that collect and share data that they acquire from users and their surroundings. this policy comes at a time when iot is taking over every inch of our homes—on thursday, amazon introduced about 15 new alexa-enabled products, including microwaves, clocks, and car gadgets. with it comes the increased risk of hackers abusing that collected data. sb 327 addresses that flaw. it requires manufacturers of a connected device to equip it with a “reasonable security feature or features,” beginning from jan. 1, 2020. the bill also mandates that manufacturers must provide default passwords that are ...

theresa may can’t win when it comes to brexit
the consensus in the british media is that thursday’s informal brexit summit in salzburg, austria, was a “humiliation” for theresa may, with several papers running a photo of the red-jacketed prime minister standing in a crowd of black-suited male eu leaders to emphasize her isolation. may was getting it from both sides of the channel. european commission president donald tusk posted a snarky instagram caption implying that she was trying to cherry-pick only the parts of eu membership the british like: may had gone to salzburg to present the so-called chequers plan for brexit, first unveiled at the prime minister’s country estate in july. the plan, which called for britain to continue to operate “as if” it were part of the eu customs union, with all the attendant regulations, was seen as too much of a “soft” brexit for hard-liners in may’s cabinet and prompted several of them, including foreign minister boris johnson, to resign. but the response to chequers from eu leaders at salzburg wasn’t much better. tusk declared that the deal, which would end the free movement of people between the eu and britain and exempt the country from contributions to the eu budget, “will not work.” french president emmanuel macron called the proposal “unacceptable” and gave a speech calling on fellow european leaders to “stay united” in the face of may’s demands. the timing couldn’t be worse for may, coming just a week before a conservative party confe...

what christine blasey ford remembers
on this week’s political gabfest, david plotz and emily bazelon are joined by david french, senior fellow at the national review institute, to discuss the sexual assault allegations made by christine blasey ford against supreme court nominee brett kavanaugh. a transcript of this conversation, which has been edited and condensed for clarity, is below. david plotz: should christine blasey ford testify on monday? emily bazelon: i think the request for an investigation is a completely reasonable one and makes sense if you’re trying to ascertain the truth of these accusations. that’s what investigators do: they look into surrounding circumstances and look for corroborating evidence. this accusation is about something that took place 36 years ago, and it’s possible that people aren’t going to remember whether this party happened, when it was, etc. but at least one would want to allow investigators a chance to try to sort that out, especially because kavanaugh has said that he wasn’t at this party. and that seems like something that it’s possible to at least find out more about. so i understand why blasey’s asking for the investigation. i think republicans are going to refuse to do it, which seems to clearly be their position—none of the republican senators who asked for the hearing, meaning flake and corker and collins and murkowski, are demanding an investigation. i think the republicans have decided that the politics don’t force them to do one. and...
