VC Fred Wilson on Duty, Honor, Country
It's a magnificent and beautiful place, full of history and meaning. In 1962, when I was less than a year old, General Douglas MacArthur came to West Point to accept the Sylvanus Thayer Award and gave the famous "Duty, Honor, Country" speech, in which he said: "Duty, honor, country" -- those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you ought to be, what you can be, what you will be." I am reminded of those words upon the passing of John McCain, a man who embodied them in the world of politics that is mostly bereft of them. Though I did not vote for John McCain when he ran against Barack Obama in 2008, I always appreciated the way he conducted himself in a political system that mostly seems to bring out the worst in people. He was a sharp contrast...
Country singer Gretchen Wilson addresses her recent arrest: 'I'm saddened'
ong>Wilsonong> may joke about her arrest in Connecticut last week, but ultimately she doesn't think it's very funny. The "Redneck Woman" singer spoke to Taste of Country about the Aug. 21 incident, revealing little about what happened, but elaborating on her emotions since the incident — and how she shared the news with her mother and teenage daughter. "I'm saddened by the whole thing," she admits. "I don't know that I could say — I mean, I'm embarrassed that that situation got to where it was, but not personally." TMZ was first to report that a verbal and physical altercation took place on an airplane headed for Connecticut, stating that it was over the use of the bathroom. Two days after the arrest, ong>Wilsonong> thanked fans for their patience and said: "The truth...
VC Fred Wilson on Being Public
The back and forth that Elon Musk did over the last few weeks about being public begs the question about whether the challenges of operating a public company outweigh the benefits. "As a public company, we are subject to wild swings in our stock price that can be a major distraction for everyone working at Tesla, all of whom are shareholders. Being public also subjects us to the quarterly earnings cycle that puts enormous pressure on Tesla to make decisions that may be right for a given quarter, but not necessarily right for the long-term. Finally, as the most shorted stock in the history of the stock market, being public means that there are large numbers of people who have the incentive to attack the company. "I fundamentally believe that we are at our best when...

Texan says he's selling 3-D printed gun plans, despite ruling
close The owner of a Texas company that makes untraceable 3-D printed guns is defying a federal court order by selling blueprints through his website. Cody
ong>Wilsonong> said at a news conference on Tuesday that he’ll make the plans available to anyone who wants them at any price. He said sales started Tuesday morning and that he'd already gotten nearly 400 orders. That follows a federal judge in Seattle blocking ong>Wilsonong>'s company from posting the blueprints online. Nineteen states and the District of Columbia had sought an injunction to stop a settlement that the federal government reached with ong>Wilsonong>'s Austin-based Defense Distributed. The states argued that online access to the undetectable plastic guns would pose a security risk and could be acquired by felons or...
Aretha Franklin died without a will
Aretha Franklin, who died last month at the age of 76, did not leave a will. Her four sons and other family members are thus left to find out how much the Queen of Soul was worth, and to divide it up. The process could take years and is likely to play out in public. Read more Estate law experts expressed surprise but not shock that a wealthy person like Franklin would put off a will until it was too late. One of the singer’s attorneys said he urged her repeatedly to draft one. “I tried to convince her that she should do not just a will but a trust while she was still alive,” says Don
ong>Wilsonong>, a Los Angeles lawyer who worked for Franklin for nearly 30 years. “She never told me, ‘No, I don’t want to do one.’ She understood the need. It just didn’t seem to be something she...
Has this Google Maps sleuth actually found missing flight MH370 in Cambodia?
A British man is sticking to his claim that the missing Malaysian Airlines flight MH370 may be in the Cambodian jungle, after a Chinese satellite firm disputed his find. Ian
ong>Wilsonong> now wants the site to be examined by helicopter. ong>Wilsonong> has discovered what looks like the shape of an aircraft on Google Earth amid a thick patch of forest in Cambodia. The unusual find prompted him to speculate that the pixelated shape is none other than the Boeing 777-200ER which went missing in 2014 en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. The story, first reported by the Daily Star, was picked up by other tabloids and soon led many to believe that the site of the long lost flight had finally been found. While other potential findings of the plane had previously been dismissed as other aircraft...

Jadeveon Clowney ‘of Course’ Wants Khalil Mack, Aaron Donald-Size Deal
Getty Houston Texans pass-rusher Jadeveon Clowney. Houston Texans talented pass-rusher Jadeveon Clowney is the next man up when it comes to lucrative defensive contract extensions. After seeing the Los Angeles Rams sign Aaron Donald to an incredible six-year, $135 million deal with $87 million guaranteed, Khalil Mack surpassed that number shortly after. Following a trade from the Oakland Raiders to the Chicago Bears, Mack agreed to terms on a six-year, $141 million extension with $90 million guaranteed.

A 33-year-old man was shot at point black range multiple times in front of his wife in Pretoria on Monday evening, paramedics said. "His wife was in the vehicle, but they didn't harm her," spokesperson for emergency service Best Care Xander Loubser. He said said an unknown man approached the man's car and shot him multiple times through the front window on the corner of Paul Kruger and

3-D printed gun ban extended by judge pending state challenge
close A judge in Seattle extended a ban on publishing instructions for 3-D printed guns during state litigation over the controversial practice, handing a procedural victory to gun-control advocates. The ruling, handed down in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington, marks the latest chapter in the ongoing battle over 3D-printed weapons. Defense Distributed, a non-profit defense firm, had planned to offer the blueprints for download starting Aug. 1 following a multiyear legal battle with the federal government. However, in late July U.S. District Court Judge Robert Lasnik stopped the release of the blueprints. President Donald Trump has also voiced his concern over the weapons. Advocates for gun control have argued that 3D-printed guns could...
Pujara Hits Century As India Take Control On Day 2 Against England
Pujara's innings and his last-wicket stand of 46 runs with Jasprit Bumrah (6) have virtually made the encounter at Rose Bowl a game of second innings. He got to his 15th century, and second outside Asia, with a double over the bowler's head, and well aware of the significance of the knock to the final outcome, the unassuming India number three raised his bat and helmet in celebration. It was appropriate, even as the visitors inched closer to England's first-innings effort. Pujara's footwork against spin, always a feature of his game in home conditions, came to the fore in the first innings of an overseas Test, and it helped India. As he settled down, the batsman looked comfortable against the pacers and ensured there was no hiccup from at least one end. In what turned out to be...
Fred Rogers: a quiet psychological revolution in children’s television
ong>Fredong> Rogers’s television programme Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood was loved by millions of children. Credit: Gene J. Puskar/AP/Shutterstock The Good Neighbor: The life and work of ong>Fredong> Rogers Maxwell King Abrams (2018) At a time marked by repugnant politics, school shootings and the separating of migrant families, many US citizens seem to be turning to an unexpected source of psychological and ethical solace. The hugely popular children’s television show Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood first aired nationwide 50 years ago and ended in 2001; yet a marathon showing of all 886 episodes last year drew more than one million views in its first few days.

Prom 57: On The Town, LSO, John Wilson, review: A brilliant show of sexual tension and symphonic splendour brought Broadway to the Royal Albert Hall
Saxophone sirens scream and car-horns blare in basses and brass; Coney Island’s come-hither song insinuates huskily from the woodwind, while Time Square’s lights glow tawdry-bright in the violins. If New York gets a Best Supporting Actress award for Leonard Bernstein’s West Side Story , then the city stands squarely in the spotlight in On The Town – the composer’s first Broadway hit about three sailors on shore-leave during World War II. But the city of Bernstein’s original musical...
Toronto: Mexico’s Alonso Ruizpalacios on ‘Museo,’ Francois Truffaut, Play
Scoring a 2018 Berlin Silver Bear for best screenplay and some rave reviews – Variety called it “gorgeous, giddy shaggy-dog movie” – Mexican Alfonso Ruizpalacios’ “Museo,” starring Gael Garcia Bernal, now segues to Toronto for its North American premiere before its U.S. commercial bow in New York, via Vitagraph Films, on Sept. 14. Ruizpalacios’ follow-up to 2014’s “Gueros,” a Berlin best first feature winner, “Museo” is inspired by one of Mexico’s most notorious heists: the Christmas Eve 1985 robbery of 140 priceless Mayan and Meso-American pieces from Mexico’s National Anthropology Museum, stolen by two veterinary school faculty drop-outs: Juan and sidekick

We’re All Neighbors Now: Mr. Rogers and YouTube Culture
Last weekend I took my family to see Won’t You Be My Neighbor , Morgan Neville’s brilliant documentary about the life and work of
ong>Fredong> “Mr.” Rogers. As a true early 80s kid, it hit me right in the feels and I low-level cried throughout. But it also left me thinking about how Mr. Rogers would fit in the present day, and what kind of legacy he left behind. The movie makes a lot of hay about how different Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood was to the children’s programming of the day, which was fast-paced, heavy on slapstick and light on any kind of emotional or intellectual connection. By welcoming you into his home and the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, ong>Fredong> Rogers made a personal link to the young minds watching his show, and the documentary shows that was on purpose. He wanted to...

Bikini-barista coffee chain in California drawing criticism from residents near next location
Bottoms Up Espresso is planning a new location in Chico, but residents — and one nearby business owner — aren't happy about it. (Google/iStock) Bottoms Up Espresso is planning to open up a new location in Chico, Calif., but the idea appears to have residents hot and bothered — and not in the way the owners likely intended. The “bikini coffee shop” chain, which already operates six locations in California with female baristas who wear little more than lingerie or swimwear, is drawing criticism from Chico residents, who have already raised concerns with the city manager, the Chico Enterprise-Record is reporting. “There’s nothing we can do. It hasn’t opened,” said City Manager Mark Orme, who told the Enterprise-Record that he’s already gotten numerous phone and email...

French skinheads go on trial over 2013 death of anti-fascist activist
Three French former skinheads are going on trial in connection with the death of a young anti-fascist campaigner which led to protests and the banning of three extreme-right groups. The death in 2013 of Clément Méric, an 18-year-old politics student who had survived childhood leukaemia, shocked France and led to large demonstrations against what was seen as a resurgence of far-right and neo-Nazi groups. In the wake of Méric’s death the government moved to ban three groups that it described as kinds of “private militias” which “provoked discrimination, hate and violence”. Lawyers for Méric’s family say the student was deliberately attacked and that the incident was not merely a street brawl. Esteban Morillo, 25, a security guard, and Samuel Dufour, 25, a baker, are accused of...

$22 million Duesenberg is the most expensive American car ever sold at auction
(Gooding & Co.) Classic cars from European marques selling in the tens of millions will barely get an eyelid to bat these days, and soon that may be true of American cars, too, judging by the auction activity in Monterey, California over the weekend. A 1935 Duesenberg SSJ sold at a Gooding & Company auction on Saturday for $22 million. That makes it the most expensive American car ever sold at auction, smashing the previous record of $13.75 million bid in 2016 for the CSX 2000, the first Shelby Cobra built by Carroll Shelby. However, unlike the Cobra, which had British roots, the Duesenberg is all-American. It was built during dark days at Duesenberg, as the company was struggling from the combined effects of the Great Depression as well as the death of...
PMQs: Theresa May to make statement on novichok attack – Politics live
On Sunday, 4 March, they made the same journey from the hotel, again using the underground from Bow to Waterloo station at approximately 8.05am, before continuing their journey by train to Salisbury. CCTV shows them in the vicinity of Mr Skripal’s house and we believe that they contaminated the front door with novichok.

From Heathrow Airport, they returned to Moscow on Aeroflot flight SU2585, departing at 10.30pm on Sunday, 4 March. We have no evidence that they re-entered the UK after that date. Having taken advice from Public Health England, we are confident that there was no risk to members of the...
