Stephen Curry Is the Woke 'Father of Daughters'

On Sunday, the Golden State Warriors’ Stephen Curry penned an op-ed arguing for the importance of gender equality with the headline, “This Is Personal.” It’s personal, explains Curry, because he has two daughters. “I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that the idea of women’s equality has become a little more personal for me, lately, and a little more real,” he writes.

It’s not that Curry had...

DOTS - Lifestyles Center Parking Lot Edition

Two interesting spots while I was in town today! One of my local towns has a ‘Lifestyle Center’ which has the town swimming pool, arena/concert space and library in it. I had to pop in there to the library earlier today and caught these in the parking lot!

First up, on my way back to my car was a lifted 2005 or so Chevy Silverado pickup......on aftermarket rims and performance tires. I noticed...

La vida de este hombre era tan aparentemente normal que fue el protagonista de una novela de Stephen King 

En una habitación oscura, Dennis Lynn se acerca a la grabadora y le confiesa a la doctora Katherine Ramsland mirándola fijamente a los ojos: “Nunca sé cuando va a entrar el monstruo, pero tengo claro que está aquí para quedarse”. Ramsland llevaba cinco años tratando de descifrar a quién tenía delante.

Cada mañana a la misma hora la doctora forense tenía el mismo encuentro. Un señor de habla...

Knots Happen: Equipment Malfunction At Rhythmic Gymnastics World Championships

You ever watch rhythmic gymnasts and wonder how the ribbons that they twirl while executing complex leaps, turns, and tosses doesn’t get constantly tied up in knots like your charger/laptop/game console wires do in that corner of your apartment that you never ever clean because then you’d have to deal with the wire mess?

Well, the answer is yes, the ribbons do get tied up in knots. They also...

Simona Halep Might Be Changing The Future Of Romanian Tennis

When Simona Halep won the French Open last week, it was almost inevitable that someone would bring up Nadia Comaneci, the Romanian gymnast who scored seven Perfect 10s at the Olympics in 1976. That feat turned Comaneci into an icon and inspired generations of gymnasts and led to decades of Romanian superiority in women’s gymnastics. In the New York Times, Ben Rothenberg made the connection...

Por qué duele tanto cuando te golpeas en el codo (y por qué lo llaman el hueso de la risa) 

Lo llaman el hueso de la risa, pero ni es gracioso ni es un hueso. A diferencia del resto de nuestro cuerpo, cuando nos damos un golpe en el codo sentimos un dolor inusual que rápidamente recorre todo el brazo como una especie de latigazo intenso. Esta es lo que está pasando.

Y es que el hueso de la risa, el área donde se produce el dolor intenso después de golpearnos, se llama nervio cubital....

Two Doctors in the hospital?

You might recall that the Seventh Doctor’s last stay in hospital ended when Dr Grace Holloway (Daphne Ashbrook) killed him. A night in the morgue and he rose again with a new face.

He’s back on the wards soon, but the old Doctor (Sylvester McCoy) might fare better this time since at least one person on the staff has personal knowledge of Time Lord biology.

McCoy is filming for an Autumn...

Procrastination

36 hours from now I’ll be on a flight back to OC for vacation, and I’m barely ready. Laundry is underway, although postponing it for this long means way more loads than expected, even though I have all three washers at my disposal. There’s just so much to do, so much to find, but I don’t have a great deal of time since I have to be in the office at 0400. At least I have a list of what I need...

California Abolished Cash Bail But Created a New System of Inequality

California Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation Tuesday that will make his state the first in the nation to abolish cash bail for suspects awaiting trial. But what looks like a victory for criminal justice reform on the outside is actually an opening for a new system of inequality.

As the Washington Post reports, when Brown signed the bill, he said the California Money Bail Reform Act would...
