Watch the First 4 Minutes of the Walking Dead, Season 5

Things are getting real

YouTube

I guess it’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of the twisting, turning, constantly surprising and often horrifying plotline of The Walking Dead (I started by reading the graphic novels) so now I will inflict upon you, gentle reader, the first four minutes of tonight’s opening episode of Season 5.

Warning: it’s intense.

Don’t miss this exclusive first scene from the Season 5 Premiere of The Walking Dead. For more The Walking Dead videos: goo.gl

There was a promo article at NPR the other day and I snarked about it but I really didn’t think the show was still on. There’s only so much you can do with zombies and Romero did it all a long time ago. < shrug >

This isn’t about the zombies, but about human interaction and tendencies when faced with overwhelming danger.

My distaste for the zombie apocalypse genre stems mainly from the uncomfortable overlap it has with RWNJ eschatology.

Even though The Walking Dead is more sophisticated than most in its genre, that isn’t enough to get me interested. No biggie. Tastes differ.

You could say the same thing about “Dawn of the Dead” as well. I tried reading the comic but didn’t see anything particularly interesting to me. I do appreciate that a lot of folks enjoy it but I’d rather kick back with a nice book of liberal theology like Brian Mclaren’s “Generous Orthodoxy”.

I will look forward to hearing how well you folks enjoy the show though.

Inside academia jokes are not that rare, I think, so it is not surprising that RawStory runs a story on a vulgar nom-de-plume of a non-existent co-author, which was a joke:

Oft-cited ‘total *sshole’ physicist credited in scientific literature is a fake

But sure enough, this is America, land of the free and home of the idiots, and the first comment out of the gate is a truther:

And speaking of education, I have before lamented about the low language level of so many of our Presidents’ speeches, rarely if ever in the past few years getting above the 10th grade reading level.

Today UPI runs a story about a study released the other day:

Presidential speeches have lowered in sophistication over time

Vocativ recently decided to do a study of the sophistication of presidential speeches, from George Washington to Barack Obama, and found they’ve become less sophisticated over time. They analyzed over 600 speeches using the Flesch-Kincaid readability test, which judges speech by assigning it to a grade level. All of their conclusions were analyzed by former Bill Clinton speech writer Jeff Shesol.

The analysis found that President Obama has raised the bar, in terms of speech, but the gap between him and President Bush is not as wide as many make it out to be.

Shesol wasn’t as concerned by the “dumbing down” of presidential speech as one might think.

“It’s actually a sign of democratization. […]

I disagree with Shesol. I think it is patronizing to think that the majority of people cannot build a vocabulary and language skills needed to discuss complex topics.

But it is work, and laziness exists in mental disciplines as much so as in physical work.

John Luke also released a statement, telling Us Weekly: ‘I am so excited to marry my best friend.’

Aside from the racism that’s really behind it, the best way to prevent any kind of abortion remains easily available birth control.

Long term birth control (IUD, Implants, shots, etc) should be free & easily available to anyone who has passed menarche as control of one’s own body leads to strength and freedom. Both of those things will prevent the abuses you’re concerned with.

Which is exactly why the unintended pregnancy rate in most western countries is much lower than ours.

The gop’s plan to ban abortion and make birth control harder to access would be a disaster. Simple math and natural human behavior tell us this, along with reams of data. But when ideology trumps sober public policy, you get trainwrecks borne of rigidity. As in Kansas, where cutting taxes gives the tea party such a boner that no one stops to think about practical concerns like how the hell they’ll be paid for. Say what you want about Democratic overspending; at least they’re not simultaneously calling for massive tax cuts.

It categorically does not bear watching in the US. Selecting sex is one of the worst possible reasons to get an abortion. However, trying to deal with this via an abortion ban is both stupid and indefensible.

It’s much more likely that women will be pressured into not having an abortion because they can’t get one due to the laws passed or proposed by asshats like Ted Cruz.

If Ted Cruz and others really cared about women, they’d make it easier, not harder, to get birth control, and provide reproductive health care. That’s not the intention. Instead they go with scaremongering crap like sex-selective abortions.

Sex selective abortion is already illegal in this country via a federal law that was passed after a bunch of hype over a couple of supposed instances of it occurring.

Cruz is moaning that if the 36 democrats supporting a new bill got their way that would be reversed along with most other state and federal restrictions on abortions. He is using it as a boogeyman since the bill has no widespread support in congress and that isn’t the aim of the bill anyway. It is to roll back all these state laws making abortions harder and harder for women to get.

The current federal law is as easy to get around as just not saying that you are aborting the baby due to its sex. As long as you don’t actually say that your having the procedure because it is a boy or girl and you wanted the other then no one will ever know, will they?

Heck, they would do that if the goal was reducing abortions, but it isn’t. It’s all about punishing women for having sex.

It’s about putting women back into our place. You know, as wives and mothers, taking care of the homestead and all that. Thank God my father (RIP) wasn’t having any of that and insisted his daughters be able to support themselves. I’m not married and I support myself and my sister is her family’s breadwinner. That’s not the way Ted Cruz wants it to be. His vision for the lives of women stinks.

U.S. Senate Race: Let creationists run government

Matthews Bradley says Rep. Steve Daines, R.-Mont., should not be a senator because he is a creationist (letter, Oct. 3). Maybe we should let creationists run the government for a while; the evolutionists have done a rotten job. Creationists wouldn’t do something stupid like declaring CO2 to be a pollutant. In the order of nature, it is a nutrient. Without CO2, agriculture would be impossible, and we wouldn’t be here.

Bradley says, “The evidence for (evolution) is overwhelming.” Not so. A valid theory must make predictions. Charles Darwin predicted numerous transitional forms in the fossil record, which is the only “evidence” for evolution. We have over 100 million identified and cataloged fossils collected for more than 155 years, but none are indisputably or even likely transitional. Instead, the fossil evidence suggests that every organism reproduces “after his kind.”

[…]

Evolution is defined as “random variation by mutation.” The key word is “random,” meaning no plan, no purpose and no direction.

The formerly “simple cell” has been shown by molecular biology to be incredibly complex - mathematically impossible because too many functions would have had to arise (i.e., mutate) simultaneously. […]

If evolution is true, then, as Scott Adams says in the comic strip Dilbert, “You are nothing more than a temporary arrangement of matter sliding toward oblivion in a cold, uncaring universe.” Somehow, creationism seems more comforting, historical and scientific.

Vote for Daines.

White: Parents, not government, should decide what’s best for kids

Throughout President Barack Obama’s tenure in office, we have heard about First Lady Michelle Obama’s initiatives to limit school meals to only include “healthy” food. While they may seem harmless, Michelle Obama’s actions represent yet another assault on our liberty from the White House.

[…]

Through competition among schools, parents would be able to select the best option for their child and prices would come down. Parents would be allowed to choose which curriculum (such as creationism vs. evolution) to have their children taught from. Bad schools would quickly fail, as students would no longer be restricted to going to school in their “district,” and would switch to another school, or their parents could homeschool them.

[…]

I think he is a bit confused by all the “sciency jargon,” while viruses don’t technically meet the definition of “life” they certainly are not dead either.

“Viruses straddle the definition of life. They lie somewhere between supra molecular complexes and very simple biological entities. Viruses contain some of the structures and exhibit some of the activities that are common to organic life, but they are missing many of the others. In general, viruses are entirely composed of a single strand of genetic information encased within a protein capsule. Viruses lack most of the internal structure and machinery which characterize ‘life’, including the biosynthetic machinery that is necessary for reproduction. In order for a virus to replicate it must infect a suitable host cell”.

I watched an interesting YouTube video about Ukrainian brides several weeks ago. On the male side, you’ve got mostly middle-aged or older men who for one reason or another haven’t found a mate in their home country. Some of the men are younger, maybe 30ish. On the female side, you’ve got divorcees, widows and 20ish singles who are fed up with Ukrainian men and want something “better.” There’s also an income disparity. The women were mostly from small towns, where job and dating prospects are limited. For them, hooking up with a foreigner means an escape from their small-town life, better prospects for their future and their kids’ future, as well as (hopefully) a loving, lasting relationship. The men are generally well off enough to pay for a guided tour of Ukrainian brides, and also hope for real love.

The Beeb (if I recall correctly) had a similar report about South American matchmaking tours, with similar demographics. One couple, both in their 40s, ended up getting married.

Seriously, as much of a dick Chuckles is online, I wish him a happy family life. If he and his wife are an ideal match, more power to them. One of my former co-workers in the States, a roly-poly guy pushing 40, married a Filipina he had met on one of those matchmaking sites. He was happy. She seemed happy. And they had a baby girl together, at last report. The two of them spent several months exchanging emails, and he visited her twice, before they decided to get married. They’re happy, so who am I to judge how they met?

It categorically does not bear watching in the US. Selecting sex is one of the worst possible reasons to get an abortion. However, trying to deal with this via an abortion ban is both stupid and indefensible.

Which never stopped the GOP before. There is one reason to enact such a ban. It would give pro-life police and prosecutors license to harass, intimidate and prosecute women and clinics in their quest to end access to safe and legal abortions.

In China, there are laws on the books prohibiting doctors and ultrasound techs from telling couples the sex of their babies, and couples are likewise barred from asking. It has not had a measurable effect on evening out the male-female ratio, however. A little money given the right doctor or tech can work magic.

If his ultra-right wing persona is accurate, that went right over his head. He probably was never allowed to watch The Muppets or Sesame Street as a kid because those shows are part of the nefarious Communist plot to destroy America.

The Guardian had a review of the most recent Doctor Who episode:

“This dripped with so much sexual tension you could make a compelling case for the DVD getting a 12A certificate. It was the Doctor and Clara’s last hurrah, him tuxed up, her in a cocktail dress, both completely impervious to what was appropriate. Clara has decided she’s had enough, and god, are they dragging it out, all loaded moments and unsaid truths. Those forlorn stares and stolen glances are not those of a man with paternal intentions. This was Romancing the Stone. It was Moonlighting. It may have just been a nod to the genre, but nobody even try to deny it - this was hot.”

Yep, I agree. Also, I found it too be much better than the previous episode. And the one before that.

So I just finished watching tonight’s episodes of both The Walking Dead and Talking Dead. A few thoughts:

1. Carol is a badass. That is all.

2. Something that the showrunners mentioned on Talking Dead that I never would have noticed — the first guy to get killed at the trough was the uninfected hippie guy from a couple of seasons ago that Carol and Rick found when they went on a run together and when Rick abandoned Carol.

That hippie guy was played by Robin Lord Taylor, who is now playing Penguin on Gotham.

3. Rick is definitely becoming a lot more bloodthirsty this season. I can’t wait to see where his character goes.

Talk about pathetic. Here’s what it’s like to be a Democrat in South Carolina. Not pretty, that’s for sure.

Nikki Haley is seeking her second term after a disastrous first term of ethics questions, purported affairs, a history of very late tax payments as bookkeeper for her family business, a questionable influence-peddling hiring by a local hospital, refusal of major education and stimulus money, refusal to expand Medicaid to a certain class of low wage earners (predicted to kill hundreds a year), the relentless trashing and misinformation campaign of the Affordable Care Act, pushing for vouchers and school choice, a net net loss of funding for public schools in her term and a total indifference to major polluters, (Lord know how many will die as a consequence), exceeded only by her disdain for the black community and, incredibly, women.

South Carolina probably ranks in the bottom five in more categories of quality of life than all but a state or two, nationally. And they are hanging on to number one in men killing women in greater numbers than anywhere else. What a nightmare record to run on. If you’re not a South Carolinian, that is. It’s red meat for the typical Palmetto state voter.

Yes, on November 4th, she’s going to kick her opponent’s hindquarters by a larger margin than the 2010 four percent, when she faced the same State Senator, Vincent Sheheen.

And it goes on with even more depressing news. Ugh.

Well, one Brit states the obvious anyway, the one and only John Cleese:

John Cleese says: ‘I’ve finally found true love - in a fish and three cats’

[…]

When I ask what else makes him angry, Cleese goes on a rather disorganised rant against a variety of targets. He begins with the police - “It’s very sad for me to realise that the police seem to be so corrupt” - and moves on to the BBC, which “was the greatest television organisation” but is apparently “now completely hopeless”. Then he broadens his attack to France and Italy - they’re in “a terrible mess. There is so much of this country now that is badly run and so much of the world that is badly run. The people who run the Republican Party in America are the most cynical, most disgracefully immoral people I’ve ever come across in a Western civilisation. Their one aim when Barack Obama became President was to deny him any kind of success.”

Yeah, and H1N1 is primed to spread wide and far, becoming the new Spanish Flu. Same with SARS, Swine flu, etc.

Times I wonder if these guys get paid to scaremonger.

SARS, MERS, and influenza, are all biologically capable of causing massive and widespread infections due to their method of transmission. The difference is that the mortality factor isn’t there, and that’s something that can change by mutation. We’ve had years of experience with this kind of change. We have seen this happen.

The fear about Ebola is a change in transmission (from blood/bodily fluids, to airborne), which is something that hasn’t been documented, despite decades of research and understanding about the Ebola virus family.

The Constitution wisely does not provide that option, or Congress would waste even more time than it does now passing futile legislation that can’t pass the constitutionality test.

And I’m sure he’ll tweet back that he refuses to recognize it, as a lot of the wingnuts who hate the idea of the courts being able to rule on laws do. In their minds, SCOTUS was only supposed to serve as a suggestion. That if the nine wise souls ruled against a law, Congress could override them to enforce the “will of the people.”

Once it passes the legislature, it is indeed law. Yet it remains unenforceable until it clears the rules committee (at least in Illinois, IIRC). They are the ones that set in motion the process that lets Law Enforcement et al, know how and when they can actually make an arrest.

Even then the attention didn’t prevent the crash of a C-17 prepping for an airshow in Alaska 16 years later. en.wikipedia.org The conditions causing the crash were insanely similar to what caused the B-52 to crash. Hell, an unladen C-17 is probably easier to pull some of those maneuvers in but it still couldn’t handle it…

Obviously the pilot’s flying ability was greater than the effects of gravity, laws of physics, and those stall warnings be damned!

By using the word “marriage”, the government is forcing religion to change the definition of marriage!

re: #452 RealityBasedSteve

I always figured that Issac had to have some long-term pathology after that whole “Going up the mountain” adventure with Abraham. Probably some trust issues that needed to be worked out.

RBS

Two things:
1) Abraham is shown coming down off the mountain to the slaves that waited for him - alone. This may be due to a redaction from an earlier version of the story where Issac did not survive or it may well be that he no longer had any trust for his father.

2) It has been also noted by Torah scholars that the bible never depicts Issac and Abraham ever talking to each other again. Even Joseph talked to his brothers who sold him into slavery.

There is considerable psychological subtlety in Genesis…

Objectiveness of morality is unrelated to the existence of God.

Now, I don’t believe objective morality is possible or that it is even a coherent concept - no more so than objectively tasty food. If I were to suddenly acquire faith in God, I still would have no reason to believe in an objective morality. God’s opinion on this issue would still be just his own opinion. Just like God, if he exists, can’t make a food item A objectively tasty (even if he can rig everything so that every living creature will find it tasty). It’s still a matter of pure opinion.

So by saying “our objective morality exists and it is grounded in God” believers merely introduce an unnecessary link into the logical chain (God), without thereby dealing with the problem of how morality can be objective.

But then, an atheist who prefers to believe in an objective morality can simply remove this link and say: “objective morality simply exists, regardless of God”. This claim is no less defensible than that of the theist.

No, it’s not the putting on carefully that is dangerous. It’s taking it off after potential exposures. The slightest deviation or breach of protocol can have fatal results.

With the ongoing crisis, I hope that the designers of these biosafety gear products look at new ways to minimize the chances someone can get accidentally exposed disrobing the gear. Fewer pieces of gear - more seamless gear.

Been slowly scrolling though the Wikipedia list of airshow crashes and incidents.

Lots of low-level failures to account for altitude conditions, wind, and I think partially just old planes failing.

This one I think was the most surprising so far regarding cause:

September 11 - (Mannheim, Germany) - A United States Army CH-47 Chinook (serial number 74-22292) crashed while carrying British, French, and German parachutists who planned to jump when the helicopter reached an altitude of 12,000 ft (3,700 m). All 46 aboard were killed. The crash was later found to be caused by an accumulation of ground walnut shells that had been used to clean the machinery.

I’ve reported both of CCJ’s tweets. Twitter needs to come down hard on him, as he’s made it clear he has no intention of following its rules and is not only abusing them but doing so for profit. If you report him make sure to reference the fact that he was suspended once already in the last week for the same behavior. His pettifogging attempt to draw some kind of distinction should not be rewarded.

I just did before I saw your post and mentioned his “time out” last week for doing the same damned thing. I also reported that “doctor.”

re: #322 Feline Fearless Leader

You know, if your town “lives for football” then maybe it’s time to develop other hobbies. Also, and I say this as someone married to a former college football player (who lost his scholarship in chemical engineering because of serious injuries and never got to finish school- his family couldn’t afford it), why is so much money in college tied to sports? Shouldn’t there be a lot of other things we could tie it to instead? In state after state, the highest earning state employee is a college football coach, and no one bats an eyelash, but heaven forbid a high school teacher make 50K a year, why that’s criminal.

I was harassed and bullied in high school constantly by football players and cheerleaders. A friend of mine shot herself (and survived) over the bullying and no one did a fucking thing about it. Because they were valuable and the rest of us weren’t. My son went through the same thing. Athletes should be held to a VERY high standard if they’re going to be put on a pedestal, but they aren’t. I blame the adults in charge for this shit, but at a certain point a young adult needs to be held to account too. A town is divided over this? There’s your priorities. I wish people would get that pissed off over homelessness, poverty and violence.
