    NBC has been accused of anti-Semitism for the second time in a week after a scene from sitcom Nurses sparked outrage on social media for portraying a Hasidic character in a negative light.  The scene - which aired on the network earlier this month - featured an Orthodox Jewish character named Ezriel refusing a bone graph from a 'goyim, an Arab or a woman'. Goyim is a Yiddish word for a non-Jewish person, and is often used in a pejorative manner.  'I don't consent. It's God who heals what he creates,' Ezriel states in the scene, much to the frustration of doctors who appear to view him as prejudiced and anti-science.  Several prominent media figures took to Twitter on Tuesday night slamming the scene for being factually inaccurate.  'For those of you unfamiliar with Jewish law, which puts precedent on healing and saving lives, there is no prohibition on the...

Mather ribbed the layer saying, “He is loud; his English is not tremendous.” Mather also hit up his “bad English” theme when speaking of the team’s Dominican academy and educational programs, saying, “Surprise, surprise! They’d get in trouble because they wouldn’t know how to speak the language or make change or even buy dinner.” In another segment, he...

    Quick note: some of you keep asking about my thoughts on Blazing Saddles. You will find those here and here. Can you believe that we now live in a world where Mel Brooks, George Carlin, Richard Pryor, and Monty Python would be blacklisted? Can you believe Lenny Bruce, the uncompromising comedian who sacrificed everything to further the cause of free speech and unbridled satire, would once again find himself blacklisted today, but this time by America’s left-wing Hitler Youth? I can’t imagine life without these giants, and I cannot even begin to put a price on how their work enriches my life. And it’s not just the laughs. Great satire provokes, makes you uncomfortable, forces you to think, and, best of all, it goads you into laughing at yourself, which is good for the soul. I’ll give you the best example I can… Thirty-five years ago I only agreed with...
    Rudy Giuliani, the embattled former personal attorney to Donald Trump who was at the forefront of false theories about the outcome of the 2020 election, came under fire this week after telling a cringe-worthy story about ogling professional golfer Michelle Wie’s “panties.” An outraged Wie responded on Friday by calling the comments “unsettling” and “highly inappropriate.” Appearing on former presidential strategist Steve Bannon’s “Warzone” podcast on Thursday, Giuliani recounted playing in a 2014 charity golf tournament with right-wing daytime radio host Rush Limbaugh. Limbaugh died one day before the podcast was recorded after a multi-year battle with lung cancer. “Do you have time for a funny story?” Giuliani asked before diving into the details of what transpired. According to the former New York City mayor, he was partnered with Limbaugh who was complaining about the large number of paparazzi that were following him around the course. Giuliani then invited...

    Jalen Johnson caused quite a stir in the college basketball community Monday when the Duke freshman announced he would be leaving the team, focusing on his health and preparing for the 2021 NBA Draft. Blue Devils coach Mike Krzyzewski and his players have expressed support for Johnson, but critics have gone so far as to label him a quitter. Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim seems to lean more toward the latter group. During his weekly radio show, the 76-year-old declared that Johnson was “hurting” Duke and the team is “much better now without him.” “He was just doing some things and keeping other people from playing that are good,” Boeheim said. “They’ve had two monster wins since he’s opted out and they’re playing good basketball. They’ve got very good talent. You knew they were going to play out of this thing and now they’re playing well.” MORE: NBA executive weighs...

    An off-duty police officer in Westchester has been suspended after an investigation into his intervention involving an apparent domestic dispute. On Monday, Feb. 15, an off-duty New Rochelle police officer was involved in an altercation with a person from Mount Vernon, the department announced on Friday, Feb. 18. According to the department, the altercation followed an apparent domestic dispute between the person and a member of his family that was observed by the off-duty officer. An initial review of the incident found that the off-duty officer’s actions were “inappropriate,” and he has been levied a 30-day unpaid suspension, the most severe disciplinary measure the department could impose under the circumstances. It is unclear what “inappropriate” actions the off-duty officer took or the nature of the domestic dispute.  The matter has also been referred to the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office for further review. The New Rochelle Police Department noted that...

    Many years ago I said something inappropriate on Twitter. I took the post down. An enemy of mine saved it and has been circulating it, and when my employer found out, I was fired. I was young and stupid and took it down years ago. Is my sacking justified? Well, I don’t know what you said so I don’t know how bad it was. But most employment is “at will,” which means companies can fire you and you can quit any time for any reason. The only thing an employer can’t do is fire you for any reason that is protected by law, such as age, race, gender and so on. That aside, I am deeply troubled by the gotcha, cancel culture. What if everything you have ever uttered privately had been recorded and played back? If anyone can say that there isn’t anything cringeworthy from their past, write...

    . and . La Jornada newspaperSaturday, February 13, 2021, p. a10 Tokyo Since the intense emotion of the day in which the Japanese capital was chosen as the Olympic venue for 2020, the road to the Tokyo Games, marked a year ago by the Covid-19 pandemic, has been strewn with obstacles. The most recent, the resignation as chairman of the organizing committee of Yoshiro Mori, a week after his sexist criticism that women talk too much, which sparked public outrage. My inappropriate statement has caused a lot of chaos. I want to step down as president as of today (yesterday), Mori, 83, said at a Tokyo 2020 executive council meeting. The important thing is to organize the Games in July, my presence does not have to become an obstacle, added the one who was Prime Minister of Japan (2000-2001).

    Under the belief it was the movie that would most offend today’s Woketards, last week I wrote about the gloriously inappropriate and problematic Animal House (1978). Finding myself in a Belushi mood, a few days later, I watched his next hit, 1980’s The Blues Brothers, and quickly realized today’s Hitler Youth would hate this one even more — a whole lot more. You have no idea how blessed I was to come of age in the 70s and 80s, two of the freest decades, not only in our country’s history but in world history. By 1970, Hollywood’s self-censoring Production Code had been dismantled, the great Norman Lear had pushed the boundaries of television with his masterpiece All in the Family, and suddenly nothing and no one was off-limits. There were no more sacred cows. No limits on satire. No protected groups. And do you want to know the best part?...
    Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) accused Senate Democrats on Thursday of overseeing a “kangaroo court” aimed at convicting former President Donald Trump on impeachment charges. “I think what we’re watching is a total kangaroo court,” Hawley said in an interview with Fox News’ Harris Faulkner. “It is an illegitimate proceeding, it is unconstitutional. If you want to see the proof of that, just look at what happened last night when Sen. Mike Lee [R-UT] pointed out that house managers had blatantly misquoted him. He tried to get it stricken from the record, and what ensued was chaos on the senate floor as Sen. [Patrick] Leahy [D-VT] first ordered a vote, stopped the vote in the middle because [Senate Majority Leader] Chuck Schumer [D-NY] intervened to ask him wait a minute, don’t do the vote.” Hawley was referencing an incident that resulted from Rep. David Cicilline’s (D-RI) characterization of a call between Lee and...

    The Conversation Spain The deaths and illnesses we would avoid if we reduced pollution Shutterstock / bibiphotoIf the top nine emitting countries meet the targets of the Paris Agreement, 1.6 million deaths would be avoided by 2040 due to improved air quality. This prediction comes from a study just published in The Lancet Planetary Health whose authors have analyzed the health benefits that could be achieved if states (Brazil, China, Germany, India, Indonesia, Nigeria, South Africa, the United Kingdom and the United States) they implement sufficiently ambitious climate plans. Along with the decrease in pollution, the work also considers measures related to changes in diet and active mobility, which would prevent 6.4 and 2.1 million deaths, respectively.

    My favorite part of Animal House, by which I mean the part that makes me laugh myself nearly to death, is watching Bluto (John Belushi) — backed by the strains of the great Sam Cooke’s Wonderful World — stuff his face as he makes his way through a cafeteria food line. Don’t know much about history Don’t know much biology… The scene famously ends with a chaotic food fight after Bluto impersonates a zit. Belushi, like Lou Costello, Harpo Marx, and Redd Foxx, was one of those once-in-a-generation talents where everything he did ranged from  lovably amusing to laugh-out-loud hilarious. A change of expression, the lift of an eyebrow, a shrug of the shoulders, and you were on the floor. After nearly 50 years on the air, John Belushi is still the greatest talent to emerge from Saturday Night Live. In the best sense of the word, he was every...

    Billboard advertisement features former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick near Raymond James Stadium ahead of Super Bowl LV. (Patrick Smith, Getty Images) Most Americans don’t like to see political statements made by brands, according to a new poll about the upcoming Big Game in commercial advertising. A Morning Consult poll conducted January 25-26 asked dozens of questions about the Super Bowl, regarding everything from the halftime show to whether watching the game is even a big deal this year. And of course, a lot of questions about the ads. The Super Bowl is the super bowl of advertising, so it makes sense it would be a big part of pre-game polling. Among the many questions regarding advertising, the first was on the subject of political content in ads from brands. Specifically, asking “In general, do you believe it is appropriate for brands or corporations” to “make political statements.” Among adults, only...
    Lincoln Project cofounder Jennifer Horn has terminated her relationship with the anti-Trump organization, citing the “grotesque and inappropriate behavior” of her colleague and fellow cofounder John Weaver, who has been accused of sending explicit messages to young men, offering advice in exchange for sexual favors. The New York Times confirmed Horn’s departure Friday afternoon. She told the outlet, “Upon careful consideration, I have terminated my relationship with the Lincoln Project, effective immediately.” “John Weaver’s grotesque and inappropriate behavior, coupled with his longstanding deceptions concerning that behavior, are sickening,” Horn said. “It is clear at this point that my views about how the Lincoln Project’s efforts are managed, and the best way to move the Lincoln Project forward into the future in the wake of these awful events, have diverged,” she added. According to the Times, Horn offered no further detail on her departure, but the Lincoln Project released a statement...

    A Delaware judge ruled Tuesday that a lawsuit McDonald’s filed against its former CEO regarding an inappropriate relationship he had with a colleague may proceed. Vice Chancellor Joseph Slights III, who serves on the Delaware Court of Chancery, rejected former McDonald’s CEO Steve Easterbrook’s request to toss the lawsuit, The Associated Press reported. In August, McDonald’s announced it would sue Easterbrook demanding to cancel the severance agreement the company negotiated with him upon his removal in 2019. McDonald’s negotiated Easterbrook’s removal in 2019 after it discovered he had a non-physical affair with a subordinate. But the fast food giant determined in July that he had actually engaged in multiple affairs and deleted evidence from his phone prior to the company’s internal investigation into the matter.

    The entertainment giant Disney has chosen to reinforce security on its Disney + streaming platform by removing classic films from the children’s catalog, such as “Dumbo” or “Peter Pan” that include negative representations and / or mistreatment of people or cultures, although they will continue to be available on adult accounts.

Now several of his animation classics such as “Dumbo” (1941), “Peter Pan” (1953), “The Lady and the Tramp” (1955), “The Jungle Book” (1967) and “The Aristocats” (1970 ) have become considered content suitable only for people over 7 years old and have been blocked in children’s profiles (under 7 years old) due to their inappropriate content.

    Age-verification protocols put in place by social media sites are ineffective and easily sidestepped by children, a study has found.  The age at which children are allowed on social media platforms varies depending on country, with the UK and US allowing 13-year-olds to have accounts. France, Ireland and Germany, however, have a minimum age of 16. A report by Lero, an Irish software research centre, found tech-savvy children are able to circumvent these measures with relative ease.  'This results in children being exposed to privacy and safety threats such as cyberbullying, online grooming, or exposure to content that may be inappropriate for their age,' said lead author Dr Liliana Pasquale from University College Dublin.

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Less-lethal weapons like rubber bullets are not appropriate for crowd control. That’s the finding of a new study looking at the unrest in the Twin Cities following the death of George Floyd. An interdisciplinary team of University of Minnesota researchers looked at the injuries people sustained.
