The English Beat - I Confess (VIDEO)

Question for sports parents out there.

Do you ever reach the point at which you grow sick and tired of hearing the voice of your kid's coach (even for no legitimate reason)? In there now.

Joss Whedon set to direct Batgirl movie

Batgirl is flying solo. The superheroine is getting her own standalone movie from filmmaker Joss Whedon.

Whedon is nearing a deal to write, direct, and produce an untitled Batgirl pic for Warner Bros. as part of its DC Extended Universe.

No other producers are currently attached. Toby Emmerich, president and chief content officer of Warner Bros. Pictures Group, is overseeing with Jon Berg and Geoff Johns. The new project originated in the past month.

Batgirl is one of the most popular superheroes in the world, but has never gotten her own movie. The project will also feature other characters from the world of Gotham.

Batgirl first appeared in DC Comics in 1967 as Barbara Gordon, the daughter of Gotham City police commissioner James Gordon in “The Million Dollar Debut of Batgirl!” by writer Gardner Fox and artist Carmine Infantino.



Kellyanne Conway Worked for Accused Felons

New financial disclosures show Counselor to the President Kellyanne Conway worked for the Center for Medical Progress, a pro-life group facing felony criminal charges in California for allegations that it illegally used false identities to record undercover videos of conversations with abortion providers.

The Center for Medical Progress (CMP) released its first round of videos in July of 2015, which drew attention to the fact that numerous abortion providers provide fetal tissue to biomedical researchers, who in turn provide them with financial compensation to offset those costs. CMP’s videos energized pro-life activists and drew significant criticism from supporters of abortion rights, who argued they were doctored and intended to stigmatize the abortion procedure.

Abortion has always been a political lightning rod, but the CMP videos forced the issue in a way that hadn’t been seen before. Planned Parenthood rallied a bevy of patients and celebrity supporters to defend the procedure and its providers, and Hillary Clinton—then a presidential candidate—as unequivocal about her support for the group and abortion rights. Meanwhile, Trump and his allies ripped the organization. And pro-life outside groups, including the Susan B. Anthony List, organized activists in swing states to push back against the procedure.

The Center for Medical Progress is listed as one of many that Conway consulted for in 2016. That list was made available through her Executive Branch Personnel public financial disclosure report, which the White House released on Friday night.


Shit's getting real.


God, I love being a public employee.

State holiday for me. Took the kid to school and picked him up. Took a nap. Took the family out to dinner and now I'm chilling at the top of Nob Hill. I'll never be rich but you can't put a price on days like this.
