Beyonce Turned Down a Role in Beauty and the Beast

When #BillCondon was rounding out the cast for Disney's live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, he tried—and failed—to involve #Beyonce. He had worked with her before, when she played Deena Jones in his 2006 film Dreamgirls. To date, he's one of just two directors to put her in a musical—the first being Robert Townsend, who directed MTV's Carmen: A Hip Hopera. "Isn't that weird?" Condon recently asked Yahoo! Movies. "God, it seems crazy!"

Massive Shell-Expelling Star G79.29+0.46

Image Credit: NASA, Spitzer Space Telescope, WISE; Processing & License : Judy Schmidt

Explanation: Stars this volatile are quite rare. Captured in the midst of dust clouds and visible to the right and above center is massive G79.29+0.46, one of less than 100 luminous blue variable stars (LBVs) currently known in our Galaxy. LBVs expel shells of gas and may lose even the mass of Jupiter over 100 years. The star, itself bright and blue, is shrouded in dust and so not seen in visible light. The dying star appears green and surrounded by red shells, though, in this mapped-color infrared picture combining images from NASA's Spitzer Space Observatory and NASA's Wide-Field Infrared Survey Explorer. G79.29+0.46 is located in the star-forming Cygnus X region of our Galaxy. Why G79.29+0.46 is so volatile, how long it will remain in the LBV phase, and when it will explode in a supernova is not known.

NFL Update: More and More, NFL Becoming Women’s Game

The numbers certainly are eye-opening, but don’t come as a surprise to many. “We rule the world,” Ben said, smiling. “Ladies rule the world.”

Know more: https://goo.gl/TVwt4X

Wearing all of her Dallas Cowboys swag, Tamy Ben walked around AT&T Stadium before the season opener against the New York Giants last month. Like most in North Texas, she couldn’t wait to get in the stadium and get the 2017 NFL season underway. “I’ve been a Cowboys fan my entire life, ever since I was a little girl,” said Ben, a Fort Worth, Texas resident. “I am a true Cowboys fan.”

#Ben was one of thousands of female fans attending the Cowboys-Giants game that day, and is one of millions who enjoy the game on a weekly basis. Women fans make up almost half of the NFL fan base with more than 45 percent women identifying themselves as fans. Cowboys executive vice president #Charlotte Jones Anderson said #women account for more than 47 percent of their fan base.

In a world in which meta-humans are more populous, where magic hid itself after humanity tried to kill it off, there are still communities that live on, using the old language, growing in urban centers, where most people are simply overlooked. In this world, resides a small, basic neighborhood known as Hell's Kitchen, within the city of New York. There the nights are still and silent...or so it seems. A lot of them are this time in age. There is fear in Hell's Kitchen. The devil can feel it flowing through the veins of those who walk the streets, the good and the bad. He heard it inhale and exhale in the midst of the cold nights. Yet he is unbound by these fears. The city unrolls like a carpet in front of him, above him, behind, below, to either side of him and he can feel its heart racing. He wishes he could say he was here for the view, but even that's too much of a lie, even for him to stomach. He loves the city, loves it deep down to the bones. He is unseeing, and yet, always watching...


"People often call me "fearless." I'd be lying if I said I really minded the title, but I'd also be lying if I admitted any truth to it at all. Everyone is afraid of something. Ask any of my friends, they'll tell you I'm a God-fearing man. While that's true, there are other, mortal things I am afraid of. I don't fear death--that should be a given. If death scared me at all, I wouldn't do what I do. Every night, I tread past death's door, the possibility of not coming home tomorrow is always clear in the back of my head. I'm not afraid of pain, defeat, or most things the everyman may hesitate when faced with...but I have my insecurities. My moments of doubt or hopelessness. I'm human. I still bleed. Sometimes, I simply ignore my fears; sometimes I go on and confront them. Whatever the trick may be in any given case, I can never allow myself give into them. I'm not as fearless as the press gives me credit for, but I do my damnedest not to show it. Fear, after all, does not eclipse courage. Courage comes from rising above your fears."


He listens to the city around him. While it would be considerably quiet to any regular person, the basic sounds of the city are uproarious to the devil's amplified hearing. If he didn't know how utilize his senses properly, every little sound would be deafening to his ears.


"I guess you could say I was a bit of a bookworm as a kid. My father wanted me to be successful in life. He didn't want me to end up like him. An "uneducated pug" he'd say to describe himself. Due to this, it also meant I wasn't allowed to go outside with the other kids. I was bullied in school. The other kids would call me "Daredevil" because of how cautious and shy I was. Until the one time I wasn't. I was walking home from school one day when I noticed an old, blind man crossing the street. At the same time, the driver of a cargo truck carrying toxic waste through New York City traffic wasn't paying attention to the road. I ran towards the man and shouted after him. Deaf too, apparently. So I bolted towards him, jet-fuled by years of pent up fighting spirit. The trucks tires screeched and stopped at a skid, although I was still hit by the truck head on. Barrels of the waste flew out of the back and spilt all over the road. The last thing I ever saw was a glimpse of the sky and the glow of radiation. I was blinded instantly. Later there would be...compensations. The chemical isotope rewired my remaining senses over time--amplified them to superhuman performance."


"At a young age, my Mother abandoned my Father and I. I don't have much memory of her...but my father? My father, Battlin' Jack Murdock, was a prize fighter who was forced into doing some pretty bad stuff for some pretty bad men. He was a worn, small time boxer, who when told to, refused to take a dive during his last boxing match because he wanted his blind son to hear the crowd cheering his name. Later that night, he was shot by a couple of gang members. The man that pulled the trigger was a man named Slade. Didn't have too much information on him. The man who gave the order was Roscoe Sweeney, who called himself "The Fixer."


"My world had become a much darker place when my father was taken from me in a cruel twist of fate. I had to mourn the wrongful loss of my father whilst trying to find light in the darkness. Eventually an old man named "Stick" would find me in the orphanage. He taught me how to control and hone my senses. He taught me how to fight. He showed me everything I was capable of. I hated him, but he taught me well. After he abandoned me, I began my hunt for the Fixer in search of justice and answers. I located him and his followers, including Slade, and pursued them in a chase through a subway station after chasing them away from their headquarters. Before I could get Sweeney to confess, he died of a heart attack. I'd say he got lucky. Slade would deal with life in prison. Once I got a little taste of crime fighting, I decided to put my abilities to good use."


The devil rests nimbly on a gargoyle, where he stalks his prey and tunes his ears into the city. The citizens of Hell's Kitchen see the dark silhouette of a man in the crescent moonlight, save for the two horns protruding from the mask he dons. He listens to the city in case its people call for help. He puts his own life on the line to defend those who can't defend themselves. A man like this does more in a single evening than one true, fashionable hero does in a week.


"This is Hell's Kitchen. It raised me, practically. This city let me breathe its air. Sure, I've lost things in its streets...my father, my eyes, and occasionally...my religion. I'm not sure which hurts me the most anymore, but I've gained things too. "Super friends"...a different kind of family. My lawfirm. When I put on the mask, when I hide my eyes, the ones I forgive this city for taking, that's when the devil comes out. That's when I feel I've lost whatever moral religion I have left. I constantly remind myself that where ever I walk, I walk with my father's composed and fearless demons, because my father had devils of his own, sure enough. He brought the demons with him into the ring and they backed him through every punch, through every win, every loss, and his ghosts were always there watching...waiting...cheering."


A dark and dirty city bleeds and a hero is born in the oozing wound...


"My name is Matthew Murdock, but Hell's Kitchen knows me by another name..."

Velcro on a stick

Common agrimony (Agrimonia eupatoria)

Svartskog, Norway

Yet another species using hooks for seed dispersal, and so many seeds!

In summer this is a plant with lovely yellow flowers swaying on long inflorescences. Come autumn and seed dispersal, furry animals or humans wearing loopy fabrics will most definitely get acquainted with this species as they will stick to your pants or to the fur of your dog as small and annoying balls that you must rip out with hairs and fabric to free yourself from it.

Humanity as for quite some time now acknowledged this to be a most ingenious, fast and very safe way to solve so many of our everyday needs in the form of Velcro. As so many times before, and countless times to come, nature has found the best way to solve fundamental practical problems.

This is one of several plants growing alongside the road in the hill behind my home, and they seem to spread as the seeds are dispersed by people walking their dogs or just enjoying nature here. The locations I found them first have no such expansion, which proves very well how the hooked seeds in areas with a stable flow of humans and furry animals provide an efficient dispersal method.

Obama Begins Calling American People to Console Them About Trump Being President | The New Yorker

Post has attachment
Trump has a desperate need which repeatedly compels him to invent an alternate reality he can inhabit, on an imaginary pedestal constructed of lies.

It's a need arising from deep insecurity, compelling stupid, deceitful statements, like his recent claims that former presidents didn't call the families of fallen servicemen.

No man who lives inside a web of such deceit deserves to be called a president. He's more like a venomous spider, waiting for the next inconvenient truth he can call "fake news"...

From the article linked below:

THE families of slain US soldiers have lashed out at Donald Trump, branding him a “fat f**king liar”, after he falsely said past presidents had never called them.

“When my brother was killed (in Iraq War), Pres Bush listened while I screamed at him & then held me as I sobbed, you fat f**king liar,” Delilia O’Malley tweeted at President Trump.

Her fury was echoed by Gold Star families and the staffers of former presidents, who accused President Trump of blatantly lying.

The Republican leader said in a news conference on Monday he had written letters to the families of four soldiers killed in an October 4 ambush in Niger and planned to call them, crediting himself with taking extra steps in honouring the dead properly.
“Most of them didn’t make calls,” he said of his predecessors. He said it’s possible that President Barack Obama “did sometimes” but “other presidents did not call.”

A research team from multiple institutions says that cetaceans (whales, dolphins, and porpoises) have a more complex society and culture than we realized. Among other things, the members of a cetacean group communicate with each other, have complex relationships, teach each other new skills, exhibit social play, care for youngsters that are not their own, and have signature whistles that act as their names.

We all have fairly stable ideas about what kind of people we are. And that’s all for the best – we don’t have to think too hard when ordering coffee every morning. These ideas about what kind of people we are might also be accompanied by ideas about what kind of people we are not – I’m not going to shop at Costco, I’m not that kind of person. (This way of thinking about yourself could easily slide into moralizing your preferences, but let’s not open that can of worms here.)

There is, however, a deep problem with this mental set-up: people change. There are tumultuous periods when we change drastically – in times of romantic love, say, or divorce, or having children. Often we are aware of these changes. After you’ve had kids, you probably notice that you’ve suddenly become a morning person.

Stars and Dust in Corona Australis
Image Credit & Copyright: Eric Coles & Martin Pugh
https://apod.nasa.gov/apod/ap171018.html

Blue dust clouds and young, energetic stars inhabit this telescopic vista, less than 500 light-years away toward the northern boundary of Corona Australis, the Southern Crown. The dust clouds effectively block light from more distant background stars in the Milky Way. But the striking complex of reflection nebulas cataloged as NGC 6726, 6727, and IC 4812 produce a characteristic blue color as light from the region's bright blue stars is reflected by the cosmic dust. The dust also obscures from view stars still in the process of formation. At the left, smaller yellowish nebula NGC 6729 bends around young variable star R Coronae Australis. Just below it, glowing arcs and loops shocked by outflows from embedded newborn stars are identified as Herbig-Haro objects. On the sky this field of view spans about one degree, corresponding to almost nine light-years at the estimated distance of the nearby star forming region.
