cropped-Authsignatureimage-1webheaderv2

Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial cartoonist Tony Auth, whose sharp and creative commentary appeared in The Philadelphia Inquirer for more than 40 years, died of cancer on Sunday. He was 72.

“He never ever shied away from tackling the major issues of the day. Few journalists in this city have performed their craft with such a combination of compassion and artistic brilliance.”

–  Stan Wischnowski, the Inquirer’s editor

Auth had worked for the past two years as the artist-in-residence at NewsWorks/WHYY, which announced his death.

“Tony Auth was a great cartoonist, a fine journalist and an even better friend.”

–  Chris Satullo

said Chris Satullo, WHYY’s vice president for news and civic engagement. Satullo previously served as the Inquirer’s editorial page editor, where he also worked with Auth.

Family members told the Inquirer that Auth had been battling brain cancer and recently went into hospice care.

Auth worked at the Inquirer for 41 years starting in 1971. He won the Pulitzer for editorial cartoons in 1976 and was a finalist twice after that. Read the rest of this entry »

[VIDEO] DESPERATION: Nancy Pelosi: ‘Civilization as We Know It Would Be in Jeopardy’ if GOP Wins Senate

Bill Maher spoke with Nancy Pelosi tonight in his live D.C. show, Pelosi said, “It would be very important for the Democrats to retain control of the Senate. Civilization as we know it today would be in jeopardy if Republicans win the Senate.” and talked with her about all things midterm-related. But Maher also challenged Pelosi on how “warmongers” appear to be the dominant voice not just in the GOP, but in the Democratic Party too.

CIVILIZATION-DRUDGE

Maher brought up the predictions that the Democrats will lose the Senate in November, and asked Pelosi if things are so gridlocked in that chamber anyway, “why do I care if they lose the Senate?” Pelosi said (somewhat jokingly), “Civilization as we know it today would be in jeopardy.”

Pelosi said Democrats need to turn out, but Maher said they generally don’t, because no one votes to say “thank you,” but “the angry people” (a.k.a conservatives) always come out in droves. Read the rest of this entry »

NFL Announces New Zero-Tolerance Policy On Videotaped Domestic Violence

700

NEW YORK—Following public outcry over his mishandling of Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice’s aggravated assault of his then-fiancée, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell announced Tuesday that the league has adopted a new zero-tolerance policy toward all videotaped domestic abuse. “We hold our players to the highest standards both as professional athletes and as people, so any violence toward women that is recorded, authenticated, and then publicly distributed will be met with an automatic suspension and fine,” said Goodell, adding that the new, stricter guidelines reflect the league’s hard-line stance against any spousal abuse that is clearly and irrefutably captured on film. “I can assure you that any member of this league who strikes a woman in front of a live camera will face swift and heavy consequences.

The Private Self(ie)

Originally posted on TIME:

Since the Jennifer Lawrence photo hack, Internet security has come under scrutiny. But why do many young women feel the need to take and share nude selfies in the first place? Don’t get me wrong: I think hackers are morally reprehensible and should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. But I also think that we need to build an alternative to the dogma “If you’ve got it, flaunt it.” Young women are told that it’s a sign of being proud of your sexuality to “sext” young men—a philosophy that has turned girls into so many flashing beacons, frantic to keep the attention of the males in their lives by striking porn-inspired poses.

Today if you watch the famous Algerian-French singer Enrico Macias singing to his late wife, Suzy, about how he “won her love,” their dynamic seems as if it’s from another planet. Some might watch this…

‘Batman: Arkham Knight’ Out June 2015

official-batman-arkham-knight-announce-trailer-father-to-son-youtube-1

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has announced June 2, 2015 as the release date for “Batman: Arkham Knight.”

The massive open-world game originally had been set to be released this fall, but Warner Bros. wanted to give developer Rocksteady more time to finish the company’s final installment in its trilogy, which also includes the hits “Batman: Arkham Asylum” and “Batman: Arkham City.”

This year marks Batman’s 75th anniversary.

However, the date shift will also move “Batman” away from other big tentpole releases like this month’s “Destiny,” from Activision Blizzard, as well as the next installment of the “Call of Duty,” and “Assassin’s Creed” franchises.

A new Lego Batman game — “Lego Batman 3: Beyond Gotham” — will still debut this fall.

Warner Bros. made the announcement via the game’s Twitter feed.

“Arkham City” bowed in 2011, with “Arkham Asylum” starting the franchise in 2009. Read the rest of this entry »


How Jennifer Lawrence’s Boobs Broke the Internet: Fake Links to Nude Celebs Overload New Zealand’s Telecommunications Network

Malware trap Brings New Zealand’s Internet to its Knees

AFP – It is believed a handful of computer users clicked links on Friday evening believing they would take them to the illicit images, but instead they inadvertently installed malware triggering a crippling Internet attack.

“For obvious reasons, clicking on links to ‘naked celebrity’ photos, or opening email attachments would be a very bad idea right now, expect criminals to ride this bandwagon immediately.”

It took telecommunications giant Spark, the rebranded Telecom Corp., until Sunday to fully repair what it termed a “dynamic” cyber-attack that overloaded its system covering more than 600,000 customers.

“Our scanning brought to our attention some freshly-concocted schemes targeting those looking for the photos borne from the aforementioned leak.”

Robert Downey Jr: No Plans for ‘Iron Man 4′

The Butcher:

Say it isn’t so!   

Originally posted on Variety:

Don’t hold your breath, Tony Stark fans.

In a new interview with Variety, Robert Downey Jr. shot down speculation about a fourth “Iron Man” movie.

“There isn’t one in the pipe,” Downey said. “No, there’s no plan for a fourth ‘Iron Man.'”

The actor, in Toronto to promote his new film “The Judge,” signed with Marvel and Disney for two “Avengers” sequels, which hit theaters summer 2015 and 2018, but has been reluctant to commit to any more superhero films.

When asked if he would “let” somebody else play Tony Stark, Downey laughed off the idea.

“I like that the idea is that it would be up to me, like I’m casting director for Marvel,” he said.

“Don’t give it to anybody else,” his “Judge” costar Robert Duvall advised.

Downey did joke about the possibility of “The Judge” being a trilogy when talking about how much he…
