- An Ode to the High Road; a reflection on Haute Route Alpe D’Huez — THE MOUNTAIN MUTTON
Haute Route, famed for their brutal seven day stage races / sportives, launched their new concept three day events this year, and I rode the first in the calendar – the Haute Route Alpe D’Huez. OC Sport nailed the route. It perfectly caputured all the different facets of the mountains that makes me so love […]

- Dear HBO: About that Alt-Reality “Confederate” Show. — Afroculinaria
Ok. HBO has created tremendous buzz about a show that has everybody talking, even me. It’s a show called “Confederate,” the South won, time moved on, slavery and abolitionist sentiments and battles over freedom evolved through our own day. To put it in Entertainment Weekly’s words: But wait, isn’t that already the reality we essentially […]

The Republican health care bill failed in the Senate after the defections of three key GOP members. But those votes — and many of the other obstacles that ultimately tripped-up the attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act — did not come out of thin air. They were enabled by a massive grassroots protest movement against any major cuts to health coverage that was organized mostly by and for women.
While Sen. John McCain of Arizona defected from GOP leadership because of his objections to the unorthodox legislative process, Sen. Susan Collins of Maine and Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska repeatedly cited the enormous outcry from their constituents as a reason for their consistent opposition. Thousands of new activists all across the country have spent the last seven months staging protests, visiting offices, writing postcards and making phone calls to urge their Senators to oppose the GOP health care plan. According to organizers, the vast majority of them were women.
Republicans have been promising to repeal and replace Obamacare for years, but extreme pressure from constituents made it harder than they ever imagined. To attribute the failure of the bill to internal politics alone is to ignore the hundreds of thousands of Americans who have spent the last six months begging their representatives not to slash their health care.

My first dad died when I was almost four. I have a few clear memories of him. For a while, only one side of him worked with the help of a leg brace. And then neither side did. The curve of the wheelchair when I’d sit on his lap as he wheeled me back to […]

- Brief delights — Harvesting Hecate
Summer is a season of brief delights. Tiny beings on gossamer wings cloud the air for fleeting moments. Meadows undulate in an abrupt dazzle of colour. Birds swoop in from their long journeys to a frenzy of feasting and breeding. It is a season where things appear like magic, before vanishing as though they were never there. […]

There is no song in the entire musical universe that better encapsulates the decadent torpor of a season spent with no responsibilities. Wet bathing suits pulling at groins, Bomb Pops smeared across faces, the hush of city roads, unused, while drivers fill downtown skyscrapers. The summertime world is languid. It is the snick-snick-snick of sprinklers. […]

Forgive me, for capturing you.
Snapped. Framed. I heard,
although you did shout,
that someone forgot to lock
the car, and you were sent
ambling back. I was after
the architecture, actually,
and to show a pewter sky
doubled in the river gloss.
The swans came soon,
and the water purled from
their bone-white plumes
as they drifted the river,
but I had to go before
I was invited to read at a poetry night earlier this week in Bradford-on-Avon. It’s a small town of lovely architecture, quaint shops, and humble history. Whilst I only had a few minutes to walk through the town, between arriving and the poetry starting, I had to capture a part of it.

Newly-appointed White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci issued a warning to the media on Saturday morning: leave my family alone.
“Family does not need to be drawn into this. Soon we will learn who in the media has class and who doesn’t. No further comments on this,” he posted on Twitter.
A day earlier, Scaramucci tweeted: “Leave civilians out of this. I can take the hits, but I would ask that you would put my family in your thoughts and prayers & nothing more.”

Ethiopians ruling party, the Tigray People’s Liberation Front (TPLF), has been using“the fight against corruption” as a political strategy of settling internal power struggles as well as rooting out officials whose loyalty to the regime is questioned. If the Ethiopian government refuses to address the issues of corruption and quality of higher education, the current flourishing economy will likely evaporate, as it will be too late to take sustainable measures. Ethiopian government has to admit the basic structural changes, and show willingness to allow development of multiparty democracy system in the country. Though, the ongoing non-violent revolution in Ethiopia has both encouraging and discouraging news about the near future for the country: the discouraging features of the non-violent resistance includes: massacres of innocent civilians by the TPLF and the neglect of the atrocity by Western Media. Whereas the encouraging features of the resistance includes: the revolution is ignited and ushered by millions of determined young people and is a grassroots movement against repression and corruption. The non-violent revolution has created some sort of solidarity between the two largest ethnic group Amhara and Oromo; for these reasons, the resistance against dictatorship entered into irreversible phase that will consolidate democracy in Ethiopia. The prevalence of the recent political corruption in Ethiopia had had a number of consequences. It affects country’s GDP and rewarded unproductive employees in both private and public sectors.
- Kathy Griffin Says She Is No Longer Under Federal Investigation
Comedian Kathy Griffin posted on Twitter Friday that she is no longer under investigation for posting a photo of herself holding a bloody fake head resembling President Donald Trump.
“TODAY. The @AP has to clarify. I am no longer under federal investigation. The case is closed, I have been completely exonerated. Finally,” Griffin tweeted.
In June, Griffin’s lawyer confirmed that her client was being investigated by the Secret Service and was interviewed by the agency, The Hill reported.
- U.S. Navy Says Warning Shot Fired Near Iranian Vessels ‘Safe and Professional’
(TEHRAN, Iran) — The U.S. Navy has responded to a report by Iran’s official news agency that a U.S. aircraft carrier fired a warning shot during an “unprofessional” confrontation with Iranian vessels in the Persian Gulf on Friday.
The Navy describes the encounter “as safe and professional.”
The Bahrain-based 5th Fleet says one of its helicopters was on a routine patrol in international airspace when it saw several Iranian vessels approaching American ships “at a high rate of speed.” The Navy says the helicopter tried to establish communications but received no response, so it sent out flares, prompting the Iranian boats to halt their approach.
A man-made power outage — not an approaching hurricane — forced 10,000 tourists to flee two North Carolina islands and turned summer vacation into a messy nightmare for many.
Cars lined up Friday to get on ferries, the only way off Ocracoke Island, after a mandatory evacuation order was announced. Gas stations ran perilously low on fuel and ice, and business owners complained about losing a chunk of their most lucrative time of year due to a construction crew accidentally severing a main transmission line. Without power, air conditioners went silent and ceiling fans stopped humming as extremely humid temperatures reached 80 degrees (26 Celsius).
“We were really disappointed. You’re used to things like this happening from Mother Nature on Ocracoke, but not from human error,” said Kivi Leroux Miller, who awoke in a hot rental house Thursday morning.
