American comedy legend Carl Reiner has passed away from natural causes at the age of 98. Reiner was a man of many talents – a director, a writer, an actor, a producer, and more, who shaped the face of US comedy across multiple decades.

His filmography is perhaps best remembered for his run of iconic comedy movies made with Steve Martin – 1979’s The Jerk, followed by Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid in 1982, The Man With Two Brains in 1983, and All Of Me in 1984 – widely considered to be some of the funniest movies ever made, filled with iconic lines and performances. Reiner also had a legendary partnership with Mel Brooks, the pair creating the 2000 Years Old Man sketch and releasing a series of comedy albums together.

As an actor, Reiner became known to a different generation by joining the cast of Steven Soderbergh’s 2001 Ocean’s Eleven remake, as well as its two sequels. Across those films, he played Saul Bloom – the veteran con artist who acts as a mentor to George Clooney’s Danny Ocean and Brad Pitt’s Rusty Ryan. His final screen role came in last year’s Toy Story 4, in a brief voice cameo as Bonnie’s forgotten dinosaur toy ‘Carl Reineroceros’, joined by ‘Chairol Burnett’, ‘Melephant Brooks’, and ‘Bitey White’ (Carol Burnett, Mel Brooks, and Betty White respectively). “It was fun to partner with Mel Brooks and be a small part of such an iconic franchise,” he told EW of the role.

From Muhammad to ISIS: Iraq’s Full Story

This was published September 12, 2014 By Tim Urban – There have been changes!

 

On the morning of Saturday, August 2nd, I got in a taxi in Erbil, the regional capital of Kurdish Iraq, and asked the driver to take me to the Khazir refugee camp.

This was a scary-ish thing to do.

The “scary” part is a result of the fact that the Khazir camp is outside of the borders of the somewhat autonomous Kurdish region, one of the only secure parts of the country.

The “ish” part comes from the fact that the Khazir camp, though outside of Kurdish borders, is still in an area currently controlled by the Peshmerga—the Kurdish army.

Iraq has been a scary place for a while now, for a number of reasons, but it’s currently scary in italics because of the terrorist group we’ve all gotten to know about in the past three months—ISIS.

One graphic explains why Americans are facing an EU travel ban

US tourists will be excluded from visiting the European Union after the bloc finalized its list of 15 safe countries for travel to member states on Tuesday.

The EU has formally agreed on a set of recommendations for the nationalities of travelers that should be allowed to enter its borders, effective from July 1 — and the US is not included.
And while US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has stressed the “importance” of reconnecting the US and EU during the coronavirus pandemic, one graphic shows exactly why European countries are shutting Americans out.
.
The two curves clearly show the EU and the US heading in opposite directions in dealing with the Covid-19 outbreak. New confirmed daily cases in the EU peaked around mid-March and are on a clear downward trend, with cases below 10,000 for more than a month. In the US, new cases are on a steep upward trajectory.
Many European countries went into a strict lockdown early, and EU nations have been reopening gradually and cautiously as their cases numbers decline.

Catalina Island is made for exploring, with more than 165 miles of trails, from easy to difficult, waiting for you to discover. Eighty-eight percent of Catalina Island is within the Catalina Island Conservancy, one of the oldest private land trusts in Southern California. Many visitors enjoy exploring the 37.2-mile Trans Catalina Trail.

If hiking outside of Avalon, you’ll need a hiking permit. You can get your permit, free of charge, online at the Catalina Island Conservancy, at the Conservancy House in Avalon, the Nature Center at Avalon Canyon, the Hermit Gulch campground office, Airport in the Sky, and Two Harbors Visitor Services.

For your safety, stay on designated trails and follow these recommended hiking tips:

    • Hike in groups of three or more

A Long Walk’s End

On a Saturday morning in May 2015, a group of law enforcement agents, the FBI among them, knocked on the front door of the Montgomery Homestead Inn in Damascus, Virginia. The proprietor, a retired kindergarten teacher who lives across East Laurel Ave. from the inn, happened to be there at the time. She does not know for sure how many agents were on the inn’s porch. She guesses three or four, though her husband told her later another man was positioned at the back door.

“There were just a lot of men out there,” Susie Montgomery said.

Damascus (pop. 800) is in a valley in the Blue Ridge Mountains, along the Appalachian Trail. Downtown consists of about five blocks “but in those blocks, there are five churches,” Montgomery said. A visitor crosses one bridge coming in, another heading out. Idyllic is the word. The Montgomery Homestead Inn is only an old, two-story brick home with four bedrooms travelers can rent. On the morning those FBI agents came knocking, it was the weekend of the annual Appalachian Trail Days Festival when something like 20,000 hikers descend on the town for fellowship and revelry, and the inn’s four rooms had been booked for weeks. Montgomery did not know what business the men crowding the porch could have there.

When she opened the front door, one of the agents held up a photograph of a man and asked if she knew him. She looked at it and said, “Yes. That’s Bismarck.”

On most days, around 6:30, Sandy Jenkins would wake up without an alarm and linger for just a few minutes in silence. This was one of the best parts of his day, a time when life seemed full of possibility. He didn’t sketch out plans or set goals. Preparation wasn’t his strong suit. In those quiet moments, he would lie there and fantasize. He imagined a life filled with travel and prestigious pursuits, scenes set to soaring arias or violins. Maybe he’d be stepping off a private plane, squinting into the distance at a mountain range; maybe he’d be strutting down a street in some exotic locale while people smiled deferentially. He’d play those fantasies in his head until, at 6:35, he placed them on pause, for later.

One morning in December 2004, he slid his legs out of bed, petted his miniature dachshund, Maggie, and stumbled downstairs to make coffee; he preferred it strong and black and poured into a fine china cup. After returning to bed, he and his wife, Kay, watched Good Morning America (he liked Robin Roberts). Then he ate breakfast, showered, slipped on his Rolex, surveyed his close-cropped hair for any sign that it was getting too long and kinky, like his father’s, and wandered over to his closet. He picked out a pair of slacks and then studied his selection of polo shirts from Dillard’s and Foley’s, pondering the same choice he faced just about every day: black or gray.
