RAGE. White House rages at Mueller in leaked letter: ‘In the April 19 letter to the Justice Department obtained Thursday by Fox News, White House Counsel Emmet Flood laid out a series of concerns with the Mueller report, specifically on the team’s handling of the investigation into whether Trump obstructed justice. “The Special Counsel and his staff failed in their duty to act as prosecutors and only as prosecutors,” Flood wrote, complaining that the report “suffers from an extraordinary legal defect” by failing to comply with the “requirements of governing law.”‘ Grave miscalculation?

OUTBREAK. Scientology cruise ship quarantined due to measles.

AND THEN THERE WERE 22. Senator Michael Bennet enters presidential race: ‘Michael Bennet, the moderate, studious Democratic senator from Colorado known for his work on education and immigration reform, announced his candidacy for president on Thursday. He joins a field so packed with candidates that it now includes six of his colleagues in the Senate and his former boss, John Hickenlooper, a past governor of Colorado.’

AND ANOTHER. Montana Governor Steve Bullock prepping 2020 announcement. ‘Bullock’s announcement won’t be a big surprise. He formed a political action committee, Big Sky Values PAC, in mid-2017, to fund political travels and activity around the country, and he’s hired political veterans as staffers for the PAC, including an organizing director in Iowa.’

NAME-CALLING. Trump spends much of the day obsessing over evil nicknames for his 2020 rivals. “With Trump, everything is personal. So for Trump, a lot of the day is spent trying to assess the weaknesses of the other candidates. Trump believes that if you can encapsulate someone in a phrase or a nickname, you can own them. Low-energy Jeb, Little Marco — that kind of s— really diminishes people and puts you in control of them, and that’s what Trump is a genius for doing.”

CONVICTED. Florida man threatened to behead Bernie Sanders.

TRUMP CAMPS. 3rd migrant child dies in custody.

JOE BIDEN. Barr should resign.

RUSSIA. Putin wants a separate internet for Russia: “Russian President Vladimir Putin has signed into law new measures that would enable the creation of a national network, able to operate separately from the rest of the world, according to documents posted on a government portal on Wednesday. For now, the network remains largely theoretical though, with few practical details disclosed.”

CONNECTICUT. State to consider bills to ban ‘gay panic’ defense and to “create an advisory committee to study discrimination on the basis of gender identity or expression that occurs in workplaces and schools in the state.”

WASHBOARD. Chris Hemsworth’s post-surfing bod.

SMILE. Tennis pro Andy Murray got new teeth.

VICE. Publication unblocking words such as “gay,” “fat,” “Muslim” and “transgender,” and “calling on advertisers to reconsider the standard brand-safety practice of blacklisting keywords like these in their media buys.”

JULIAN ASSANGE. Wikileaks found will fight extradition to United States: ‘At a court hearing Thursday, Assange said he would not surrender to extradition for doing what he called “journalism that has won many awards.”’

PALO ALTO. Gay man says officers kicked down his door, beat him, and arrested him unlawfully. ‘The lawsuit further alleges that the officers mocked and humiliated Alvarez because of his sexual orientation and were motivated by their “hatred and prejudice” of gay men.’

STEVEN ANDERSON. Homophobic pastor will not be allowed into the Netherlands.

AMERICANS FOR THE EQUALITY ACT. Dustin Lance Black and Karamo Brown.

The Blazers’ innovative ‘strategy’ to leave Nuggets shooters wide open and scream at them, explained

This is probably not a deliberate strategy by Portland … we think.

The Portland Trail Blazers are under-manned in their efforts to beat the Denver Nuggets and reach the Western Conference Finals. With center Jusuf Nurkic out with a fractured fibia and tibula, the Blazers no longer have the rim protection they had in the regular season. To compensate, they’ve created corner three-point shield by using their … voices.

Allow us to explain. Led by assistant coach Nate Tibbets, Meyers Leonard, and Enes Kanter, the Blazers have used the age-old tactic of screaming and flailing from the bench in order to distract Nuggets corner shooters from sinking otherwise open shots.


And it’s working! In two games, the Nuggets have played 48 minutes in front of Portland’s bench — the first half of each game. In Game 1, Denver took and missed just one three in the space of the Blazers’ bench contingent. The Nuggets ended up scoring 121 points in a victory.

But in Game 2, they were almost welcomed to launch from in front of Portland’s bench. Portland allowed the Nuggets to take EIGHT attempts from the left corner. They bricked each and every one.


Tibbets was the most animated courtside attendee. The five-year Blazers assistant coach has stood up on Nuggets shots from deep, and at times has seemingly reached his arms outwards as if he’s about to play actual defense himself. He’s really had to be pulled back!



Tibbets wasn’t the only one to interfere on that Monte Morris three. Check out Kanter, running a few steps laterally in his bright red uniform, yelling lord-knows-what white towel clenched in an aggressive fist.


That wasn’t the only Blazers bench bonanza. Watch as Evan Turner rises from the abyss behind Gary Harris to mock-swat him.


Look closer now.


The joint effort was STRONG on this early first-quarter Harris three, too, with everyone being their quintessential selves.


Tibbets’, the catalyst for the night, pointed at Harris, which ignited the deep bench mob (Jake Layman, Anfernee Simons, Leonard) to rise and shout. Turner then yelled from his chair and Seth Curry muttered something from a wall-sit position(?)


Will this strategy work for an entire series? Probably not. There’s no supporting data to suggest that vocal annoyance is a sustainable way to stop elite basketball players from making open shots. Also, in theory, it is utterly ridiculous. If seven-foot arms in these guys’ faces don’t work, screams will?

Not to go super-nerd, but corner threes are also the shortest distance from the basket from deep range. Teams shouldn’t be leaving these open!

But for now, for whatever reason, the Trail Blazers’ Monsters Inc.-level scream power is prevailing. Don’t question it.

Be a Part of History By Volunteering for WorldPride 2019 | Stonewall 50

This summer, get ready to celebrate Pride like never before. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising, NYC Pride is hosting WorldPride, the first time the massive international celebration has come to America in the event’s nearly 20 year history.

Iconic events like the NYC Pride March and PrideFest will be bigger and better than ever before, while the entire month of June will boast an array of events and activities in the city where the contemporary LGBTQ+ liberation movement began.

All that’s missing is you.

“I grew up in the midwest, not necessarily the most welcoming place for people who were different,” said Brian Heck, a fifth year Pride volunteer. “When I first came to New York and saw the march, I was really inspired by all the diversity I saw; I knew then that I wanted to save up money so I could move to New York.”

From cosplay to cinema, there are activities awaiting to please every stripe in the LGBTQ+ rainbow. In fact, WorldPride 2019 is themed “Millions of moments of Pride” celebrating the countless diverse experiences of our unique community.

“My first Pride was in 1998,” said 20-year Pride volunteer, Diana. “Other people have told me, ‘Diva, you did Pride in 1998, and you’re still doing it?’ I say ‘Well, it’s something that I like and I enjoy, so I’m going to continue doing it.’”

There are so many ways to be a part of WorldPride, but the most important way is to volunteer. This movement was started by LGBTQ+ people, and it’s the community that will continue this fight for acceptance, equality and dignity. With such a massive non-profit event coming together, volunteers are crucial part of WorldPride’s success.

“I wanted to be a volunteer, because this is how we bring that to the next generation,” said second-year volunteer Hannah Simpson. “To say this didn’t end 50 years ago, this just began.”

When volunteering with NYC Pride, there’s a chance to make real, significant input to the planning and execution of the largest Pride celebration in New York City’s history. Organizers work with volunteers to find a suitable assignment that leverages their temperament, experience and personal preference.

In addition to the satisfaction of being part of the history-making affair, volunteers have the chance to forge connections and support other members of the community. Long-lasting friendships are created between volunteers, and the experience is designed to re-energize the community. Volunteers are motivated by helping others, and they inspire the people they work with.

“It’s necessary for me to stand up and speak out and volunteer and inspire,” said first-year volunteer Keith Young. “It’s my purpose to help people.”

Volunteers have a unique opportunity to especially affect change with the younger generation.

If you’re interested in volunteering at WorldPride this summer visit nycpride.org/volunteer.

“People who want to help out and volunteer who are under 21, a lot of them do not have the support from their family, they’re not out, they’re looking for that sense of community,” Heck said. “We’re here to let them know that it’s ok, and they don’t have to go through this alone.”
