'Survivor' Season 33 begins - 'Millennials vs. Gen X' *SPOILER*

So apropos!

For the first time ever, the "cast" was evacuated from their unfinished shelters on the first night because a storm was coming!

No word on if they stayed in Jeff Probst's basement for the night!

You 'boomers' know why I'm laughing! I guess we're too old to do anything but watch!

For The First Time In 2016 CNN, MSNBC, and Fox Carry Clinton Rally And Ignore Trump

By Jason Easley at PoliticusUSA

For the first time in the 2016 general election, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump held competing rallies and all three cable networks chose to cover Clinton over Trump.


CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News all took Clinton’s remarks about the recent police shooting in Tulsa, OK and Charlotte, NC live. The networks had a chance to cover a Trump rally from Toledo, OH, and passed.

It is impossible to call this decision a coincidence after Donald Trump suckered the press to his new hotel in Washington, D.C. with the promise of a press conference, and then refused to take any questions.

Since Donald Trump isn’t spending money on ads or building an actual presidential campaign, free media is the lifeblood of his presidential bid. If the press stops covering every Trump rally, the Republican candidate for president is going to have a major problem.

The scariest thing about Alabama's creepy clowns


Nick Saban is the highest-paid public employee in America: Here are numbers 2-10

Source: Leada Gore at al.com

The old adage "you get what you pay for" certainly is true when it comes to University of Alabama football coach Nick Saban.

Alabama football generated a record-breaking $95 million in revenue in the 2015 national championship season with a profit of almost $47 million. That's a pretty good return even if you factor in the almost $7 million per year Saban is paid to coach the Crimson Tide.

What people often forget, however, is that Saban is a public employee, just like someone who works at the Department of Motor Vehicles or the Alabama Forestry Department. Those DMV workers aren't paid like a coach, of course. In fact, according to a ranking by 24/7 Wall Street, Saban isn't just the highest-paid public employee in Alabama, he's the highest-paid public employee in America.


Highest paid public employee in each state:

1.Nick Saban, University of Alabama football coach, Alabama - $7.09 million

2.Jim Harbaugh, University of Michigan football coach, Michigan - $7 million

3.John Calipari, University of Kentucky basketball coach, Kentucky - $6.88 million

4.Urban Meyer, Ohio State University football coach, Ohio - $5.86 million

5.Bob Stoops, University of Oklahoma football coach, Oklahoma - $5.86 million

6.Charlie Strong, University of Texas football coach, Texas - $5.16 million

7.Jimbo Fisher, Florida State University football coach, Florida - $5.15 million

8.Sean Miller, University of Arizona basketball coach, Arizona - $4.95 million

9.Bill Self, Kansas University basketball coach, Kansas - $4.94 million

10.James Franklin, Penn State University football coach, Pennsylvania - $4.4 million

Highest-paid state employees that aren't coaches:

1.Kayvan Khiabani, professor of surgery, University of Nevada Reno, Nevada - $987,638

2.David Engle, neurosurgeon, Hawaii Health Systems Corp., Hawaii - $786,000

3.Joshua Wynn, Vice President for Health Affairs and Dean of the University of North Dakota School of Medicine and Health Science, North Dakota - $674,587

4.Lewis Pasternak, anesthesiologist and CEO of Stony Brook University Hospital, New York - $673,596

5.Mary Nettleman, Dean of the University of South Dakota Sanford School of Medicine, South Dakota - $577,650

6.Frederick Morin III, Dean of the College of Medicine at the University of Vermont, Vermont - $559,644

7.Keith Meyer, president Alaska Gasline Development Corp., Alaska - $550,000

8.Mark Huddleston, president, University of New Hampshire, New Hampshire - $492,800

9.Clay Christian, Montana's Commissioner of Higher Education, Montana - $309,207

10.James Page, chancellor, University of Maine System, Maine - $277,500

If you haven’t heard already, Donald Glover’s 'Atlanta' is the best new show this Fall.

TV Review: Atlanta Series Premiere

Source: TheYoungFolks.com, by Jennifer Baugh

If you haven’t heard already, Donald Glover’s Atlanta is the best new show this Fall. Originally pitched by the multi-talented artist as something along the lines of “Twin Peaks but for rappers”, many have commented on how the show manages to brilliantly tiptoe around the conventions of similar non-comedy, comedy shows – like Louie and Girls – to offer up something more spiritually-offbeat and personal from a cast of characters we don’t normally get to see on the small screen.

The double-episode FX special featured Tuesday night rightfully set up the series as semi-biographical in its heightened and, at times, mythical depiction of the streets of Atlanta. The show itself is about the rise and fall of two distant cousins Earnest Marks and Alfred Miles – both played by Donald Glover and Brian Tyree Henry – and their absentminded entourage of one Darius – played by Keith Stanfield – who quickly find themselves on the verge of hip hop notoriety within a small community of growing fans and villains. There’s legitimate reason why everyone is so hyped about this new show. Here are five things Atlanta definitely has going for it.

1.) The city of Atlanta in the show is not only a place but a state of mind.

2.) The voices of the characters are so distinctly different from one another that each could warrant their own individual spin-off.

3.) Hiro Murai.

4.) The show employs elements of fantasy and surrealism.

5.) The show slyly addresses the elephant in the room – offering up some fresh commentary on the present controversies and social taboos of everyday race relations.


Hillary Clinton Surges Back Into The Lead Over Trump After Pneumonia Scare

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton leads Republican rival Donald Trump by 4 percentage points, and her recent bout with pneumonia doesn't appear to have scared away her supporters, according to a new Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll.

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton leads Republican rival Donald Trump by 4 percentage points, and her recent bout with pneumonia doesn’t appear to have scared away her supporters, according to a new Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll.

The Sept. 9-15 tracking poll showed that 42 percent of likely voters supported Clinton while 38 percent backed Trump. Clinton, who has mostly led Trump in the poll since the Democratic and Republican national conventions ended in July, regained the advantage this week after her lead briefly faded in late August.

Clinton and Trump candidates have since released details of their personal health. Clinton’s doctors said her physical exam was normal, apart from the pneumonia, and that she was in excellent mental condition. Trump released a note from his doctor saying that he was in “excellent physical health.”

Americans do not appear to be overly concerned with the health of either candidate. According to a separate Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted this week, most American adults said the issue would make “no difference” to how they voted.
