Winnie the pooh voice actor accused rapist/animal abuser

quote [ Jim Cummings, who has voiced both Winnie the Pooh and Tigger in Disney films, has been accused by his ex-wife of rape and physical violence. ]

Granted the accusations come from his ex wife and not proven so I'd take it with a grain of salt, but the accusations aren't mild.

Everything You Know About Obesity Is Wrong

quote [ For decades, the medical community has ignored mountains of evidence to wage a cruel and futile war on fat people, poisoning public perception and ruining millions of lives. It's time for a new paradigm. ]

As someone that has been a competitive athlete and a fatty and lost over 150 Lbs then regained some (thankfully not all) of it back this article tells a tale so many people who have dieted understand all too well. Almost everyone who diets and loses weight eventually gains it back if not gaining more back.

The War To Sell You A Mattress Is An Internet Nightmare | Fast Company

quote [ Why did Casper sue a mattress blogger? A closer look reveals a secret, multimillion-dollar battle to get you into bed. ]

Big mattress as evil as most corps--no surprise; I know I will almost certainly never buy a casper mattress in light of their apparent practices in this case

Is an Open Marriage a Happier Marriage?

quote [ What the experiences of nonmonogamous couples can tell us about jealousy, love, desire and trust. ]

I studied human sexuality in my undergrad along with anthropology, sociology, and psychology, and the model of normal human mating and partnership that I saw was clearly not lifelong monogamy. I think people should be free to structure their relationships as they want and I particularly dislike marriage as it exists as a state institution because it's way too wrapped up in religion and moral judgment that far exceed those necessary for fostering a strong family core for the good of the state. Thankfully, I see open marriage and just plain serial monogamy as gaining more ground as we move into the future. Anyway it's a good if a bit long article worth reading.

Fentanyl and you,. The real villains in the opioid overdose epidemic are counterfeit pills

quote [ When investigators sent counterfeit pills seized after the Sacramento poisonings for testing at the University of California, they found a wide disparity in the amount of fentanyl each contained. Some pills had as little as 0.6mg. Others were stuffed with 6.9mg of the drug, which would almost certainly be fatal. ]

As someone who depends on strong opioids to maintain a minimal quality of life. I truly hope that we can stop demonizing fentanyl and other strong medicines and focus on the real problems; i.e. poor addiction treatment, counterfeit drugs, and poor overall health care. The last thing the country needs is a revitalization of the war on drugs, which is what demonizing the drugs will do.

Say, Who Was That Mysterious Man Behind Hillary Clinton?

quote [ she has “a little chuckle to myself” when she thinks about the current debates over health care. “I don’t know,” Mrs. Clinton said. “Where was he when I was trying to get health care in ’93 and ’94?”

The answer: “Literally, standing right behind her,” a Sanders spokesman, Mike Casca, said on Twitter, posting a photo from a 1994 news conference that shows Mr. Sanders next to Mrs. Clinton when the then first lady spoke about the White House’s proposed health care overhaul. ]

I voted for Hillary in the primary against Obama, but I am truly in support of Sanders because I believe he is what he stands for, and I can't say that as surely about Clinton. I also believe he has a true chance of ushering in meaningful change for the better of most if not all of us.

quote [ AC/DC are ending their 41 year career on a terribly sad note.

Plans were underway for a new studio album, their first since 2008's monumental Black Ice, and a '40th Anniversary' world tour, 40 huge shows across the globe.

More than a month ago, founding member, rhythm guitarist, co-producer and co-songwriter Malcolm Young had a stroke, which left a blood clot on his brain. ] favorite band...can't believe it's over
