Nuclear Plant Helps Save Endangered Florida Crocodiles

Normally we hear about how bad nuclear plants are, but when was the last time you heard a story about how they save animals? One nuclear power plant in Florida is helping animals; namely crocodiles. Canals designed to divert power plant water are giving them a safe habitat and allowing them to thrive. This species once numbered fewer than 300 in the U.S. in the 1970s and at the time it was feared that we might lose them.

The crocodiles’ only habitat in the U.S. is in south Florida, but it has been eroded over time by modern development. So why are they flocking to these canals? It’s simple. The system channels warm water into the canals heating their habitat and making it perfect for nesting.

In 1977, employees found a crocodile nest in one of the plant’s cooling canals. At that time a monitoring program was set up to make sure that the animals did not get hurt. Apparently not a single one has suffered any radiation and as a bonus, this program has helped to monitor their fantastic rebound.

It’s a win/win situation for everyone. The monitoring process consists of capturing them, microchipping them and weighing them. Today there are about 1,500 crocodiles in south Florida, with hundreds living around the plant, some as long as 15 feet and as heavy as a ton.,50487317.html,50487331.html,50487303.html

A Nightmare On Elm Street: The True Story That Inspired Freddy Krueger

Matthew McConaughey has recounted the audition that landed him the lead villain role in the 1994 horror movie Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation. While Next Generation remains a black sheep in the slasher movie franchise and was met with an overwhelmingly negative reception, the film was a milestone for soon-to-be Hollywood superstars McConaughey and co-star Renée Zellweger. The Next Generation was McConaughey’s second high-profile film after 1993’s Dazed and Confused, and served as Zellweger’s first major role.

The Next Generation centers on a group of Texas teenagers who run into Leatherface, the notorious chainsaw-wielding murderer from the original 1974 Texas Chainsaw Massacre film, on their prom night. Zellweger plays Jenny, one of the teenage gang, while McConaughey plays Vilmer, a psychotic killer who, along with Leatherface, terrorizes Jenny and her friends. Both Vilmer and Leatherface are discovered to be part of a twisted family of murderers, the Slaughters, working on the instruction of a man named Mr. Rothman (James Gale).

The True Story That Inspired Texas Chainsaw Massacre

In an interview with THR, McConaughey recalled his bizarre audition for The Next Generation. The actor explained that he originally auditioned for a small, non-speaking role in the film and planned to move to Los Angeles immediately afterwards. After the meeting, however, McConaughey decided he wanted to try his luck at the lead villain and asked the director for an official audition on the spot, but had to improvise through it. He told THR:

The state party on Saturday overwhelmingly

At a rally at the Westin Jekyll Island on Friday night, Vernon Jones, a former Democrat-turned-Trump-supporting Republican who is Kemp’s most prominent opponent so far, called Kemp a “RINO,” and Jones’ supporters were among the most vocal booing Kemp the following day. Debbie Dooley, a founder of the Tea Party movement in Atlanta who is supporting Jones, called him “the Donald Trump of Georgia,” and a vocal contingent of Jones supporters crowded around him in the convention halls.

But Jones’ own history as a Democrat, in addition to the rich opposition research file on him, is disconcerting to many Republicans in the state.

“If his opponent’s Vernon Jones, I think Brian Kemp’s going to be the nominee,” said Jay Williams, a Georgia-based Republican strategist. “He’s a former Democrat, man … Vernon Jones is the crazy uncle we’ve known for a long time.”

The problem for the GOP, said Donna Rowe, a party official from Cobb County in the Atlanta suburbs, is that “we eat our own in the primary.”

“We’re still going to win it, but it’s going to be a bloodbath,” she said.

Kemp is not yet “out of the woods” with the base, Allen said. That was evident in the cacophony of boos he received during his remarks at the convention, a gathering that typically draws a state’s most fervent activists. The convention, one of the most widely attended in state history, featured many first-time delegates who had joined the convention largely because they believe the lie that the election was stolen from Trump.

The partisan divide in vaccinations is starker than you realize

Yet even among that far-right audience, Kemp has fared better than some other Georgia elected officials who refuted Trump’s baseless accusations of widespread voter fraud. One of them, Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan, who along with Raffensperger did not attend the convention, recently announced he would not seek reelection. Another, Attorney General Chris Carr, was nearly drowned out by boos when addressing the crowd on Friday.

Raffensperger, however, has seen the worst of it — he not only repudiated Trump’s claims that the election was stolen, he was also closer in his office to the counting of ballots than Kemp.

One of Raffensperger’s primary opponents, David Belle Isle, the former mayor of Alpharetta who Raffensperger defeated in a 2018 runoff for the nomination, distributed literature at the convention depicting Raffensperger with devil’s horns on his head. Rep. Jody Hice, who defended Trump’s effort to overturn the election and is running with his endorsement, distributed boot-shaped pins that read, “Boot Brad.”

The state party on Saturday overwhelmingly passed a resolution to censure Raffensperger.

Bruce Thompson, a Georgia state senator who had called for additional reviews of the November election, said Raffensperger is “done.” But he said the calculation surrounding Kemp has changed.

Though “the base is still pissed off,” he said, Kemp “has managed this as well as he could, as far as the pandemic and getting us open, being a governor … Brian has done a good job since the election with the economy and signing SB 202. And he’s traveling the state.”

That’s a formula that isn’t lost on Republicans who have angered Trump in other states. In Arizona, Gov. Doug Ducey, similarly reviled by Trump — and censured by Republicans in his state — cheered conservatives when he issued an executive order in April banning the use of some “vaccine passports.”

Just as with Ducey, Trump derided Kemp as a “RINO” at the height of their post-election feud, when the former president pledged to campaign against Kemp in 2022. As late as April, Trump was asserting that Kemp “caved to the radical left-wing woke mob.” He said he was “ashamed” he endorsed Kemp in 2018.

But the governor’s rebound may limit Trump’s options in the state. Former Rep. Doug Collins, a Trump ally, said in April that he would not run for governor, after Trump floated him as a potential contender.

“If Brian Kemp keeps doing what he’s doing, which is the election law stuff, getting through another session with Dems saying he’s a terrible person,” Williams said, “I think he’s probably one really big issue away from kind of ensuring his nomination.”

Ga. — Few Republicans have taken more abuse from Donald Trump than Brian Kemp, the Georgia governor whose resistance to overturning the November election results in his state enraged the former president.

As a result, much of the state’s pro-Trump base is in open revolt against Kemp. On Saturday, Republicans booed him at their state convention.

But what didn’t happen at the party gathering may ultimately matter more. Convention delegates did not censure Kemp, even as they formally rebuked another Trump enemy, Brad Raffensperger, Georgia’s Republican secretary of state.

Kemp’s standing with the rank-and-file has, improbably, improved, according to interviews with more than 30 party officials, strategists and activists here. And in his partial rehabilitation — the product of a relentless focus on so-called election integrity issues and culture war staples to excite the base — Kemp may serve as a model for dozens of Republicans elsewhere who have incurred Trump’s public wrath and are seeking to regain their standing with Republicans at home.

Kemp’s fate looms especially large in Georgia, a swing state where Trump not only was defeated by Joe Biden but saw Republicans lose both U.S. Senate seats in the state’s runoff elections in January. Fearful that Trump’s frequent criticism of Kemp could lead to a damaging primary and depress Republican turnout in a close general election — potentially a rematch with Democrat Stacey Abrams — several Georgia-based Republicans and Republicans with ties to the state have privately appealed to Trump to hold back, according to multiple sources familiar with the conversations.

Former President Donald Trump said the Republican Party will take back Congress and the White House “sooner than you think.”

He was speaking in a video for the National Republican Senatorial Committee that was shared online Friday.

“We’re going to take back the Senate, take back the House, we’re going to take back the White House, and sooner than you think. It’s going to be really something special,” Trump said in the video.

“The love, and the affection, and the respect that you’ve given all of us, it’s really important,” he added, thanking people for their support. “The Republican Party is stronger than its ever been, and its going to be a lot stronger than it is right now. We’re going to turn it around, we’re going to turn it around fast.”

“I think he wins [next year’s GOP primary] with 65, 70 percent of the vote,” Robert Lee, a Georgia-based Republican strategist, said in a crowded hall shortly after Kemp spoke on Saturday afternoon.

That assessment — widely shared here — is one that Republicans blistered by Trump elsewhere could learn from. Earlier this year, Kemp’s polling had fallen off, GOP activists in several counties reprimanded him, and it was unclear whether the governor, seeking his second term next year, could even survive a primary challenge.

On Saturday, Kemp was met by a cheering section to compete with the booing. Then, he lingered for several hours in the convention halls — shaking hands and posing for photographs.

Clint Day, a former state senator who just months ago was far more pessimistic about Kemp’s prospects, said, “I think he could be reelected.”

The proximate cause of Kemp’s improved standing is the controversial voting law Kemp championed, which, among other restrictions, makes it more difficult to cast absentee ballots. Signing it in March not only reaffirmed his conservative credentials on voting access but cast him as a central figure in the GOP’s war over the issue with Democrats and corporate America.

Joel Allen, a party official in suburban Atlanta’s 6th Congressional District, said “Kemp really did a service to himself with SB 202,” referring to the voting bill.

And while Republicans may have been disappointed in Kemp they gained a common foil in Major League Baseball, which announced that it would move its All-Star Game out of Atlanta in protest of the legislation. Condemnations by two Georgia-headquartered companies, Coca-Cola and Delta, gave Kemp another platform to push back against perceived excesses of corporations and the left.

Kemp has also directly inserted himself into the GOP’s broader culture wars. In fundraising appeals in recent weeks, he has seized on leading wedge issues, saying critical race theory “has NO PLACE in our Georgia classrooms,” while pillorying “cancel culture” and “’Defund the Police’ nonsense taking hold in liberal strongholds and with the Democrats in Washington, D.C.”

Meanwhile, the governor has significantly relaxed coronavirus restrictions in the state, while issuing an executive order late last month banning state agencies from requiring Covid-19 vaccine passports.

By April, Kemp’s approval rating among Georgia Republicans had climbed 15 percentage points from its post-election low, according to Morning Consult, settling at 74 percent. Internal campaign polling showed improvement from earlier this year, as well.

“I’m in a lot better standing than what the media wants to tell people I am,” Kemp said on Saturday, while otherwise declining to comment.–166180693/–166180985/–166181103/–166180693/–166180985/–166181103/ 


The process is a simple exercise

It was an 11th-hour breakthrough, quite literally.Less than 30 minutes before his midnight deadline, Israeli opposition party leader Yair Lapid announced Wednesday night that he and Naftali Bennett — the tech millionaire leading one of Israel’s ultraright wing minority parties — had reached an agreement to form a governing coalition that could oust long-serving Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

The coalition also includes an Islamist party, the first time in Israeli history that an Arab party has agreed to join a governing alliance.

It’s a big deal. The controversial Netayahu, leader of the right-wing Likud party, is Israel’s longest-serving prime minister and is in his 12th year in power despite facing numerous corruption charges, which he denies.

And this newly formed alliance between his opponents only came together after four inconclusive elections in less than two years.

Israeli PM Netanyahu faces removal after coalition agrees to form new government
The arrangement for Lapid and Bennett rests on the agreement that Bennett, who leads the minority right-wing Yamina party, becomes prime minister, with the centrist Lapid as foreign minister, until 2023. At that point, Lapid would take over the premiership.

But it’s not over yet — Netanyahu still has some time to fight back, as the vote confirming the new government is not expected for around 12 days.

And the fragile coalition between Lapid and Bennett, and the parties whose support they had to secure to achieve the magic number of a 61-seat majority in the Israeli Parliament, or Knesset, is baffling to many onlookers. The parties making up the likely future government of Israel represent a vast array of differing political ideologies: right wing, left wing, centrist — and Islamist.

‘Considerable’ limitations to power
Lapid, the 57-year-old former TV anchor and finance minister, is described as being on the center-left politically. He supports a two-state solution with the Palestinians and upholding secular values. Bennett and his right-wing Yamina party are unapologetically nationalist and support the expansion of Israeli-Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank, something that has repeatedly sparked conflict and international condemnation.

Arab Islamist party Raam, an unlikely partner in the alliance, is likely to push for more funding and better treatment for Arab-Israeli communities.

One of the sole things they all have in common is the desire to unseat Netanyahu. Bennett was in fact a protege of Netanyahu, formerly serving as his defense minister. Under the agreement with Lapid, Bennett is in line to be prime minister.

Israel’s potential coalition will be ‘too unstable to survive for long’: Expert
But even if he becomes prime minister, Bennett will be far more limited in what he can do, given that his power rests on the support of so many other parties of dramatically different ideologies from his.

“Even to the extent that (Bennett’s) ideology is similar to that of Netanyahu, or even somewhat more hawkish on some issues, the limitations are much more considerable than any that Netanyahu has faced,” Ofer Zalzberg, director of the Middle East Program at the Herbert C. Kelman Institute, told CNBC from Jerusalem.

“Any major decision will need to pass Lapid’s veto,” Zalzberg said. “Lapid is publicly supportive of a two-state solution, and publicly opposed to any form of annexation, so from that point of view Lapid’s party is also considerably larger than Bennett’s and there are other left-leaning parties in the coalition. … So Bennett’s ideology will face significant coalition restraints.”

To Matt Masterson, the review of 2020 ballots from Maricopa County, Ariz., that’s currently underway is “performance art” or “a clown show,” and definitely “a waste of taxpayer money.”

But it’s not an audit.

“It’s an audit in name only,” says Masterson, a former Department of Homeland Security official who helped lead the federal government’s election security preparations leading up to November’s election. “It’s a threat to the overall confidence of democracy, all in pursuit of continuing a narrative that we know to be a lie.”

By lie, he means the assertion from former President Donald Trump and some of his allies that election fraud cost him a second term in the White House.

Former Election Security Official Says It Will Take ‘Years’ To Undo DisinformationFormer Election Security Official Says It Will Take ‘Years’ To Undo DisinformationAnd, Masterson says, the strategy chosen by the state’s Republican state Senate leaders is working as intended to undermine confidence in the outcome of last year’s vote.

The process is a simple exercise in how disinformation spreads and takes hold in 2021. And experts fear it presents a blueprint for other states and lawmakers to follow, one that is already showing signs of being emulated around the country.

“Now we have a playbook out there,” said Masterson, who is currently a policy fellow with the Stanford Internet Observatory. “Where if you don’t like the results — by the way in an election that wasn’t particularly close … you just claim you didn’t lose and in fact the process itself was rigged against you.”

Step 1: Create a false reality

At a basic level, it’s a victory for those looking to sow doubt in the 2020 election results just to have them still being litigated six months after Election Day.

To be clear, Maricopa County’s election results have already been audited multiple times by companies with experience in the field, with no issues being uncovered.

Biden Says He Will Ramp Up Push To Expand Voting Rights, And Puts Harris In ChargePOLITICSBiden Says He Will Ramp Up Push To Expand Voting Rights, And Puts Harris In ChargeThis latest process however is being run by a company without election experience that’s led by a CEO who has spread election-related conspiracy theories.

Actual election audits have consistent and transparent procedures, often established in state law, but this has none of that, says Jennifer Morrell, a former election official and a national expert on election auditing. Morrell observed the process in person in Arizona for a week.

“They were sort of making up the process,” Morrell said. “They were improvising as they went along.”

Vote counters used conveyer wheels to tally ballots, often having to grab the wheel to stop it from moving too quickly past them. Other volunteers did data entry into a spreadsheet with no quality control checks in place to make sure they entered it correctly. Observers from the Arizona Secretary of State’s office have documented a series of ” problematic practices, changing policies, and security threats that have plagued this exercise from the start.”

The coalition will also depend on the active support of Raam, the Islamist party, and the passive support of other Arab parties, Zalzberg added — which he says “can lead to its toppling.”

“It’s unprecedented for an Israeli coalition to be based on active support of a non-Zionist Arab party. So this coalition will have an interest in treating Israel’s Arab Palestinian citizens differently,” he said.

A different approach to Washington?
At the same time, “Lapid is pragmatic. He’s not leftist, he’s not rightist, he’s pragmatic,” said Gideon Rahat, a senior fellow at the Israel Democracy Institute and faculty member of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem’s political science department. “If there will be a settlement that would satisfy Israel’s security, he would support it.”

Lapid and Bennett favor liberal economic policies and reforming the judiciary, Rahat said. But “Bennett is more hardline in terms of security. … In terms of the Palestinians, it’s clear that Bennet is right wing and Lapid is pragmatic.”

Tom Friedman: Biden may be the last pro-Israel US president
Both leaders want to improve Israel’s relationship with the U.S. Democratic Party, and vocally criticized Netanyahu’s heavy reliance on the Republican Party — specifically the Donald Trump wing — for support.

“The emerging coalition, unlike Netanyahu, is more interested in fostering bipartisan support for Israel in the U.S.,” Zalzberg said.

“The coalition will want more of a cooperative relationship with the Biden administration. … It will likely have to, at minimum, find ways to advance improvements for the quality of lives of the Palestinians, and these should be done in ways that are visible to gain acceptance and goodwill in Washington.”–166053361/–166053617/–166053922/–166053361/–166053617/–166053922/–166053361/–166053617/–166053922/


has warned that white supremacist groups might target events commemorating it.

Monday will mark 100 years since the Tulsa race massacre destroyed “Black Wall Street,” and the US Department of Homeland Security has warned that white supremacist groups might target events commemorating it.

“We assess those upcoming commemoration events associated with the 100th anniversary of the Tulsa race massacre in Oklahoma probably are attractive targets for some racially or ethnically motivated violent extremist-white supremacists to commit violence,” the department said, according to a memo obtained by NBC News.

The memo did not mention any specific events, but Tulsa Police Chief Wendell Franklin said that his forces have plans in place to ensure a Tuesday visit by President Joe Biden goes smoothly.

“We are going to be hopefully overprepared. I want a bunch of policemen working, and my hope is none of them have to take any action, but we are prepared if need be,” he said during a press conference.

Franklin also said that the public should remain vigilant throughout the weekend, and should report sightings of unattended packages and large vans in odd places. “If anyone sees anything suspicious, across our city, report that, ” he added.

About 15,000 people are expected to attend commemorative events over the coming weekend, the Department of Homeland Security said.

There will be a candlelight vigil and a prayer wall dedication event, according to Oklahoma’s News 4.

A nationally-televised ‘Remember & Rise’ even scheduled for Monday, featuring John Legend and Stacey Abrams, has been canceled.

The organizers said the cancelation was due to “unexpected circumstances with entertainment and speakers,” The Hill reported.

The Tulsa race massacre saw mobs of white residents attack Black residents and businesses in the Greenwood District of Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1921. Somewhere between 30 and 300 people died, mostly Black people, according to the Britannica Encyclopedia.

The massacre destroyed more than 35 square blocks of the wealthiest Black community in the US, CNBC said.

It has been referred to as the “single worst incident of racial violence in American history,” according to the Oklahoma Historical Society.–165897536/–165896214/–165896214/


Billboard Music Awards 2021: How to Watch, Date, Time Shows Live-stream free

Watch Billboard Music Awards 2021 Live Stream Will Air Live Have you cut the cord on cable TV, but still want to watch pro sports live? Rest assured, you have plenty of options for streaming your favorite sports online. Games are available to watch on nearly any device you own. The trick is subscribing to the best sports streaming service for you, or figuring out how to watch live sports for free.


Before we dive into the options and pricing, be aware of each league’s blackout rules. For those who don’t speak sports, a blackout happens when a local game does not sell out.
