  Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg dies

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg dies

BY JOHN KRUZEL - 09/18/20 07:34 PM EDT

[Image: wYfwX4w.jpg]

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, the liberal leader of the Supreme Court
and a trailblazing champion of women’s rights, died Friday.
She was 87 years old.

The Supreme Court said in a statement that Ginsburg died "surrounded
by her family at her home in Washington, D.C., due to complications
of metastatic pancreas cancer."

Seen as a moderate when President Bill Clinton nominated her to the
bench in 1993, Ginsburg went on to leave a lasting mark in the realm
of gender equality, civil liberties and pay equity, and grew to achieve
improbable late-in-life recognition as a pop culture icon and hero of
the progressive movement.

Her first major opinion as a justice came in 1996 when she wrote the
majority decision in United States v. Virginia. The ruling struck down
the Virginia Military Institute’s 157-year-old policy of male-only
admissions as unconstitutional, and set a stricter legal standard for
government action that treats men and women differently.

"Women seeking and fit for a VMI-quality education cannot be offered
anything less under the state's obligation to afford them genuinely
equal protection," Ginsburg wrote in the 7-1 decision.

Ginsburg also gained renown for her cogent and sharply worded dissents.

According to Linda Greenhouse, a longtime Supreme Court reporter and
analyst for The New York Times, it was through Ginsburg’s dissenting
opinions during the mid-2000s that she “found her voice, and used it.”

One such dissent came in 2007 after the court ruled 5-4 on procedural
grounds to bar a pay discrimination claim brought by former
Goodyear Tire employee Lilly Ledbetter.

Ginsburg took the relatively rare step of reading her dissent from the
bench to signal the intensity of her disagreement, with the 5-foot-1-inch
tall justice donning a gold-embroidered black jabot for the occasion.
It would not be the final word on the case, however.

In 2009, President Obama signed his first official legislation with the
Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, which effectively overturned the
Supreme Court’s decision by making it easier to file pay discrimination
suits. Ginsburg kept a framed copy of the bill, signed by Obama,
in her chambers.

Though Ginsburg became the high court’s leading liberal, she was
best friends with its leading conservative. The late Justice Antonin Scalia
and Ginsburg were an unusual pair — he a gregarious conservative,
she a soft-spoken, self-described “flaming feminist litigator” — but they
bonded over their love of the opera.

Scalia considered Ginsburg the Thurgood Marshall of women’s rights,
a reference to the legendary civil rights lawyer who helped end racial
segregation before becoming the nation’s first African American
Supreme Court justice.

Similarly, Ginsburg spent the early part of her career as a legal pioneer
in her own right, embarking on a ground-shifting legal crusade in the
1970s for gender equality under the law as an attorney at the
American Civil Liberties Union that included successfully arguing
several cases before the Supreme Court.

At the tail end of her career, the octogenarian Ginsburg became a
pop culture sensation. She captivated millennials, who affectionately
dubbed her the “Notorious R.B.G,” a nickname inspired loosely by
the late rapper Notorious B.I.G.

Ginsburg was the subject of a documentary, a feature film starring
actor Felicity Jones, memes, merchandise and several books, including
one on her exercise routine at age 85: pushups, planks and squats.

At speaking engagements, Ginsburg was often asked how she balanced
her judicial career with her family. That was when she spoke fondly
about her husband.

“He’s the only boy I’ve ever known who cared I had a brain,” she said
while speaking at Georgetown Law in 2018.

Her husband, the late Marty Ginsburg, died from cancer in 2010.

While Ginsburg long credited her husband’s Washington influence for
helping her get nominated to the Supreme Court, former President Clinton
said it was Ruth's interview that secured her seat on the bench.

“Literally within 15 minutes I decided I was going to name her,”
Clinton told CNN.

Survivors include Ginsburg's two children, Jane Ginsburg and
James Ginsburg, and her grandchildren, who affectionately
called her “Bubbe.”

Has anyone had any encounters with this UK based site? They seem to have glowing reviews on Trust Pilot.

I just tried placing a small order myself to test the waters, and chose to pay by bank transfer. It gave me my order number and said I'd get an e-mail within 15 minutes with my invoice and bank transfer details.

Been over half an hour now and still no e-mail.

I'm guessing it's because it's still very early here (5:20am) and the staff aren't working yet.

I'll keep you guys updated if anything happens.

The Director of the CDC has come out and bluntly stated that there have been far more 
deaths from suicides and drug overdoses than from COVID-19. The leftist media will no 
doubt claim the CDC is wrong. The social media firms will scrub any mention that this 
COVID has been a hoax. These people from Jeff Zucker the head of CNN to Klaus Schwab 
of the World Economic Forum are allegedly responsible for the rising death toll from 
destroying everyone’s future. These two individuals have allegedly been responsible for 
more deaths than COVID-19. Zucker because he personally hates Trump and is a disgrace 
to CNN while Schwab is the typical academic fool who has never left his ivory tower to see 
how the real-world functions. Schwab prefers his theory of stakeholder responsibility where 
corporations owe no allegiance to their shareholders 
– something the Big Techs seem to have adopted. – 

Unemployment globally has now exceeded 300 million people. In the United States, most 
people lose their jobs and they also lose their healthcare. None of these Marxist media 
organizations from the New York Times, Washington Post, and CNN who lead the way, 
will ever take responsibility nor will they ever stop in their attempt to constantly destroy 
the economy on the hopes that no president is reelected during an economic decline 
– i.e. Herbert Hoover or George Bush. 

[Image: CDC-Director.jpg]
The Director of the CDC said: “But there has been another cost that we’ve seen, 
particularly in high schools.” Mr. Redfield continued: “We’re seeing, sadly, far greater 
suicides now than we are deaths from COVID. We’re seeing far greater deaths from 
drug overdose that are above excess that we had as background than we are seeing 
the deaths from COVID. So this is why I keep coming back for the overall social 
being of individuals, is let’s all work together and find out how we can find common 
ground to get these schools open in a way that people are comfortable and their safe.”

[Image: New-Green-World-Order-Class.gif]

Everyone should write to the Attorney General and demand a criminal investigation 
into Zucker, Gates, Soros, Schwab, and of course Fauci. These people may have 
far more blood on their hands than anyone knows on a global scale. You cannot sit 
as an academic and create their utopian world of a New Green World Order and 
this Global Reset discounting all the people who have lost everything as necessary 
collateral damage. Proof of their arrogance is that they will never admit a mistake 
or report the truth.

Anyone have any ideas with this one, or am I at a loss?

  Diana Rigg, Star of ‘The Avengers’ and ‘Game of Thrones,’ Dies at 82
Posted by: IceWizard - 09-11-2020, 11:35 AM - Forum: World News - No Replies

Diana Rigg, Star of ‘The Avengers’ and
‘Game of Thrones,’ Dies at 82

[Image: s1CkyTi.jpg]

Sep 10, 2020 6:36am PT

Diana Rigg, the Tony and Emmy winner who splashed into the world
of television with her commanding turn as intelligence agent
Emma Peel on “The Avengers” in the 1960s and played
Lady Olenna Tyrell on “Game of Thrones” decades later, died Thursday
at her home in England. She was 82.

Rigg was a venerable figure in Britain’s entertainment industry
who worked incessantly on stage, TV and film. She famously
thumbed her nose at convention in her private life and in later
years seemed to enjoy her status as a grande dame.

“She was a beautiful kind and generous human being that enhanced
the lives of all that knew her as well as a great actress. She leaves
a great void in my heart,” said Lionel Larner, Rigg’s longtime friend
and talent agent.

Having a key role in the biggest TV series of the past decade was a
fitting career capper for Rigg. On HBO’s “Game of Thrones,” Rigg
recurred as Olenna Tyrell, also known as the Queen of Thorns,
beginning with the third season in 2013. She was Emmy nominated
for guest actress in a drama for her work on the show in 2013, 2014
and 2015.

Rigg also made a number of notable appearances on the big screen.
She played a significant role in the history of the James Bond film
franchise by portraying, with great élan, Tracy Di Vicenzo, the woman
whom Bond, played by George Lazenby, marries with great joy in
1969’s “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service,” only to see her murdered
by the minions of arch villain Ernst Stavro Blofeld.

On ITV’s “The Avengers,” the British espionage series that blended
sci-fi, fantasy and surreal elements with caper stories and offbeat
humor, Rigg’s intelligent, witty and catsuit-wearing Mrs. Peel was
by far the most memorable. In the TV show — which starred
Patrick Macnee from 1961-1969 as bowler hat-bedecked John Steed —
the actress appeared in 51 episodes of the series from 1965-68,
and was twice Emmy nominated for her work, in 1967 and 1968.
In 2000, she shared a special BAFTA Award with Honor Blackman,
Joanna Lumley and Linda Thorson, who had all appeared opposite
Macnee’s Steed in “The Avengers.” A feature adaptation of the series,
starring Ralph Fiennes as Steed and Uma Thurman as Mrs. Peel,
was released in 1998. Macnee died in June 2015.

More recently Rigg also appeared in BSkyB and NBC’s
"You, Me and the Apocalypse ” in 2016 and guested on the BBC/HBO’s
“Extras” in 2006 and on “Dr. Who” in 2013. She played Mrs. Higgins
in the 2018 Broadway production of “My Fair Lady.”

In between, she won an Emmy for playing Mrs. Danvers in a TV
adaptation of “Rebecca” in 1997. She also received an Emmy nomination
in 1975 for lead actress in a special program for “In This House of Brede,”
in which she played a London businesswoman who opts to become
a nun, and in 2002 for supporting actress in a miniseries or movie
for “Victoria & Albert.”

Enid Diana Elizabeth Rigg was born in Doncaster, Yorkshire, England;
she spent her early childhood in India. She did her training as an
actress at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art from 1955-57, and
made her professional stage debut in Brecht’s
“The Caucasian Chalk Circle” in 1957.

Rigg was a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company from 1959-64,
touring Europe and the U.S. as Cordelia in a RSC production of “King Lear”
(she revisited the play in 1983, when she was Regan to Laurence Olivier’s Lear);
she was also Viola in a 1966 RSC staging of “Twelfth Night.”

Rigg appeared on Broadway four times, starring in “Abelard and Heloise” in 1971
(her nude scene in the play and critic John Simon’s tart assessment of her
body generated publicity);
Moliere’s “The Misanthrope” in 1975; “Medea” in 1994; and playing 
Mrs. Higgins in the production of “My Fair Lady.” She earned a Tony
nomination each time, winning for “Medea.”

Reviewing “Medea,” the New York Times said, “Unlike Zoe Caldwell,
who emphasized the sexuality of the character (and won a Tony Award
in 1982 for her efforts), Ms. Rigg sees Medea as a woman of restless
intellect. An orgiastic fervor informed Ms. Caldwell’s performance; she
had a savage growl in her voice. A passionate sense of injustice propels
Ms. Rigg, whose voice never entirely loses its intrinsic musicality.”

The actress also starred with George C. Scott in the Arthur Hiller-directed,
Paddy Chayefsky-penned satire “The Hospital” (1971); the classic
Vincent Price horror film “Theatre of Blood” (1973); the 1982 Agatha Christie
adaptation “Evil Under the Sun,” in which she played the despised and
thus dispatched Arlena Marshall; and most recently 2006’s “The Painted Veil,”
in which she played the Mother Superior.

Other film credits include “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” (1968),
“The Assassination Bureau” (1969), “Julius Caesar,” starring Charlton Heston (1970),
“A Little Night Music,” with Elizabeth Taylor (1977), “The Great Muppet Caper” (1981),
“Snow White,” as the Evil Queen (1987), Bruce Beresford’s “A Good Man in Africa,”
starring Sean Connery (1994), “Parting Shots” (1998) and “Heidi.”

Rigg had her own sitcom vehicle, NBC’s “Diana,” in 1973-74 and later
hosted PBS’ “Masterpiece Mystery” from 1989-2004.

She starred as Clytemnestra in a BBC miniseries adaptation of Aeschylus’s
“Oresteia” in 1979, and she starred in an adaptation of “Hedda Gabler” for
English television in 1981. The following year she starred in a Hallmark Hall
of Fame remake of “Witness for the Prosecution,” in which she took the part
played by Marlene Dietrich in the 1957 Billy Wilder film
(others in the cast included Ralph Richardson and Deborah Kerr).

The actress starred with David MacCallum in the excellent 1989 BBC/PBS
miniseries “Mother Love”; starred with Angela Lansbury in the 1992 CBS
telepic “Mrs. ‘Arris Goes to Paris”; co-starred in the excellent “The Fortunes
and Misfortunes of Moll Flanders,” starring Alex Kingston; and starred in
the BBC/PBS series “The Mrs Bradley Mysteries”  in 1998.

Though she had considerable stage experience, Rigg had few TV credits
when she was cast in her career-making role in “The Avengers” in 1965.

The actress was a member of the National Theatre Company at the Old Vic
from 1972-75, essaying Lady Macbeth in 1972. She was Eliza Doolittle in
a 1974 production of Shaw’s “Pygmalion.” Rigg played leading roles in
premiere stagings of two Tom Stoppard plays, “Jumpers” in 1972 and
“Night and Day” in 1978. In 1982 she toured in the U.S. in the musical
“Colette,” based on the life of the French writer and co-created by
Tom Jones, but a planned Broadway staging did not materialize.
In 1987 she had a leading role in a West End production of
Sondheim’s “Follies.”

During the 1990s she turned in impressive stage work in Brecht’s
“Mother Courage,” Albee’s “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf” and
Racine’s “Phedre” and “Britannicus.”

More recently she starred in Tennessee Williams’ “Suddenly, Last Summer,”
the stage adaptation of Almodovar’s “All About My Mother,” Chekhov’s
“The Cherry Orchard,” and a revival of Noel Coward’s “Hay Fever.”
In 2011 she returned to “Pygmalion,” this time in the role of Mrs. Higgins
in the West End.

During the 1960s Rigg lived for eight years with actor-director
Philip Saville, who was both older and otherwise married; she caused
some scandal in the British tabloids when she proclaimed no interest
in marrying Saville, saying she had no desire “to be respectable.”

She married Israeli painter Menachem Gueffen in 1973, but the couple
divorced three years later.

She was married to theatrical producer Archibald Stirling from 1982
until their divorce in 1990; they broke up when Stirling had an affair
with actress Joely Richardson.

Rigg is survived by a daughter she had with Stirling,
actress Rachael Stirling.

The memorial museum and news.



New York Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Saturday afternoon that the annual September 11 light installation, during which two columns of light are projected into the night sky from ground zero as a tribute to the victims of the 2001 terror attacks, is back on. Earlier this week, officials announced that the event was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

"I am glad that we can continue this powerful tribute to those we lost on 9/11 and to the heroism of all New Yorkers," Cuomo tweeted with the announcement.

The governor said that the state will provide health care personnel and supervision in order to ensure the safety of the large crew required to assemble the "Tribute in Light" installation, which features eighty-eight 7,000-watt xenon light bulbs positioned on the roof of a parking garage.

"Honoring our 9/11 heroes is a cherished tradition. The twin towers of light signify hope, resiliency, promise and are a visual representation of #NewYorkTough," Cuomo said, thanking former Mayor Mike Bloomberg for his partnership. "The virus has taken so much and so many. But now the tribute will continue."

The installation beams four miles into the sky each year, typically visible dozens of miles away from downtown Manhattan. But for safety reasons surrounding the pandemic, officials originally decided to cancel it for 2020.

"'Tribute in Light,' the world's beloved twin beams of light, will not shine over lower Manhattan as part of this year's 9/11 commemoration," the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, which oversees the installation, said in a statement this week. "This incredibly difficult decision was reached in consultation with our partners after concluding the health risks during the pandemic were far too great for the large crew required to produce the annual 'Tribute in Light.'"

Tribute in Light Marks the 18th Anniversary of the 9/11 Attacks in New York City
The moon passes through the annual Tribute in Light, illuminated on the skyline of lower Manhattan on the 18th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks in New York City on September 11, 2019, as seen from Jersey City, New Jersey.

"We hope to resume this iconic tribute for the 20th anniversary," in 2021, it added.

Instead of the beams, iconic buildings across the city had planned to illuminate their spires and facades with blue lights. Now that the Tribute in Light is back on, it is unclear whether or not the alternative tribute is still happening.

That tribute was set to start at dusk on September 11 and last until dawn the following morning, as is customary with the traditional yearly memorial.

Family members of victims of the attack will still gather at the museum's outdoor memorial this year, with strict social distancing guidelines in place. However, recorded name readings will be played aloud rather than relatives reading the names in person, to limit the length of the ceremony and the crowd that typically gathers.

  Regular Scammers
Posted by: Charon - 09-10-2020, 06:58 PM - Forum: Scam Pharmacy Forums - Replies (6)

I got this charmer in my spam mail. I remember someone warning about this type of scam months and months ago. Thing is, I do not go to such places. I cover my camera always. I aint learning bitcoin for this piece of garbage. He picked the wrong alleged "victim" to try to scare. I know some people are new to the types of scams one can get from a forum. This did not come to me with specificity. But if you are nervous during the pandemic, don't fall for this. You may get a letter claiming "they" know you purchased meds online. Never seen that though. But, desperation is growing. Government stimulus payments are not going out again. Just be careful all. The criminals are all in Brooklyn, Bronx, NYC, and now, very much so online.


Lets get directly to the point.

Not one person has paid me to check about you.
You do not know me and you're probably thinking why you are getting this email?

in fact, i actually placed a malware on the adult vids (adult porn) website and you know what, you visited this site to experience fun (you know what i mean).
When you were viewing videos, your browser started out operating as a RDP having a key logger which provided me with accessibility to your display and web cam.

immediately after that, my malware obtained every one of your contacts from your Messenger, FB, as well as email account.
after that i created a double-screen video. 1st part shows the video you were viewing (you have a nice taste omg), and 2nd part displays the recording of your cam, and its you.

Best solution would be to pay me $1042.
We are going to refer to it as a donation. in this situation, i most certainly will without delay remove your video.

My -BTC -address: 1MqwjWSjCs4TESfyqZFcRpNHzh56kfWnZw
[case SeNSiTiVe, copy & paste it]

You could go on your life like this never happened and you will not ever hear back again from me.

You'll make the payment via Bitcoin (if you do not know this, search 'how to buy bitcoin' in Google).

if you are planning on going to the law, surely, this e-mail can not be traced back to me, because it's hacked too.

I have taken care of my actions. i am not looking to ask you for a lot, i simply want to be paid.

if i do not receive the bitcoin;, i definitely will send out your video recording to all of your contacts including friends and family, co-workers, and so on.

Nevertheless, if i do get paid, i will destroy the recording immediately.
If you need proof, reply with Yeah then i will send out your video recording to your 8 friends.

it's a nonnegotiable offer and thus please don't waste mine time & yours by replying to this message.

  Is it 2021 YET!!!!!!!

Hi All!
I have really had enough of 2020!!  Remember all the hype about "And This Is 2020"????

Well for most of us 2020 has just SUCKED!!!!

Sorry but I have a little rant!!

I was outside over the long weekend trying to clean up the flower bed and containers.  Had the hose out, a few tools -
rakes, etc.

Well in my infinite wisdom I picked up a large clay pot with dead flowers in it and it was dried out.  So I figure
I can move it to where I was dumping the pots onto a tarp.

Picked it up, which is hard on me on a good day, and I started towards the tarp.  GRACEFUL is NOT my middle name.
I tripped on the hose and to no great surprise, down I go, Pot and All.  The pot landed on the top of my foot!!!!

F****king OUCH!!!   Four hours later I am leaving Emergency Care with a fracture of my left foot. 
Today I was changed to one of those blow up boots, which if you ask me, are a danger themselves!!

So now I am on crutches which are painful to use but my walker doesn't come high enough up to use with this

All I can say is yes, it may have happened any year but REALLY????   2020???? 
The last place I wanted to be was in any type of medical setting!!!!!!  For 4 Hours!!!

So, my mind is made up!!  A wreath on the door and 1 already potted Mum and Happy ******* Fall to All!!!!

Thanks for listening!!  And yeah, today I can have a little chuckle.................  Ha ha
