'Shame' Spray-Painted On Confederate Monument In Virginia

Someone spray-painted the word “SHAME” in big yellow letters on the base of a Confederate monument in Norfolk, Virginia, making the city the latest to confront rising tensions over the preservation of such structures in public spaces. Norfolk police are in the “preliminary stages of investigation” after officers responded to a vandalism report about 8:45 a.m. on Monday, department spokesman Daniel Hudson told HuffPost. City workers removed the graffiti in less than two hours, Lori Crouch, the city’s corporate communications director, said. "Shame" spray painted on Confederate monument in Norfolk https://t.co/MTLVcho2dI pic.twitter.com/z1YcBFkbGu— WTKR News 3 (@WTKR3) May 22, 2017 Trying to wash it clean: this #confederate monument was spray painted with the word "SHAME" in Norfolk, Va. pic.twitter.com/etrtG5uo0a— Sarah McCammon NPR (@sarahmccammon) May 22, 2017 The monument, which features a 15-foot bronze Confederate soldier perched atop a granite base, “commemorates the last reunion of surviving Confederate soldiers,” according to the Downtown Norfolk Council’s website. It was unveiled in 1907. Many see such monuments as symbols of white supremacism and the slavery system that the South fought to maintain. The push to rid public spaces of Confederate iconography gained momentum after the June 2015 massacre at historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina, where white supremacist Dylann Roof shot and killed nine black parishioners. South Carolina, after many years of balking, passed legislation to remove Confederate flags from its state house grounds shortly after the shooting.  New Orleans, Louisiana, began the process of tearing down four Confederate monuments last month after the city council voted for their removal. Some residents have protested against statues’ removal ― even sending death threats to contractors hired to remove the monuments. The Norfolk City Council, which included three black members at the time, decided against removing the downtown Confederate monument in September 2015. The black members agreed that removing the structure was unneccessary, The Virginian-Pilot reported. Crouch said she wasn’t aware of any formal requests recently to have the city’s three Confederate statues taken down. Norfolk Mayor Kenneth Cooper Alexander did not immediately respond to HuffPost’s requests for comment. Joe Dillard, president of the NAACP’s Norfolk Chapter, speculated the vandalism could have been inspired by news coverage of a contentious battle in Charlottesville, Virginia, over its city council’s decision to remove a statue of Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. While Dillard said he believes the spray-painter in Norfolk was likely someone “disgusted and fed up with these monuments of hate,” he said his organization doesn’t condone the vandalism. “There are better ways to accomplish having these symbols of hate removed,” Dillard told The Virginian-Pilot. type=type=RelatedArticlesblockTitle=Related... + articlesList=59224866e4b094cdba54eece,58fddcb8e4b00fa7de15a674,56efb1afe4b084c67220b6fd -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Choosing your fuel

The work is difficult. Overcoming obstacles, facing rejection, exploring the unknown--many of us need a narrative to fuel our forward motion, something to keep us insisting on the next cycle, on better results, on doing work that matters even more. The fuel you choose, though, determines how you will spend your days. You will spend far more time marinating in your fuel than you will actually doing breakthrough work. Richard Feynman was famously motivated by the joy of figuring things out. His scientific journey (which earned him a Nobel Prize) also provided him with truly wonderful days. Here is a partial list, in alphabetical order, of narratives light and dark that can serve as fuel to push us to do work that others might walk away from: Avoidance of shame (do this work or you'll be seen as a fraud/loser/outcast) Big dreams (because you can see it/feel it/taste it) Catastrophe (or the world as we know it will end) Competition (someone is gaining on you) Compliance (the boss/contract says I have to, and even better, there's a deadline) Connection (because others will join in) Creative itch (the voice inside of you wants to be expressed) Dissatisfaction (because it's not good enough as it is) Engineer (because there's a problem to be solved) Fame (imagining life is better on the other side) Generosity (because it's a chance to contribute) It's a living (pay the writer) Peer pressure (the reunion is coming up) Possibility (because we can, and it'll be neat to see how it works in the world) Professionalism (because it's what we do) Revenge (you'll show the naysayers) Selection (to get in, win the prize, be chosen) Unhappiness (because the only glimmer of happiness comes from the next win, after all, we're not good enough as is) They all work. Some of them leave you wrecked, some create an environment of possibility and connection and joy. Up to you.

Hero Pairs Trump's Team With 'Real Housewives' To Get Through The Week

Since the White House is increasingly resembling the Bravo clubhouse these days ― with more drama than the four-part “Real Housewives of Atlanta” reunion ― it only seems fitting that we use some reality TV show foolery to understand this current political moment.  Luckily, young adult author Victoria Aveyard heard our prayers and crafted an epic Twitter thread pairing President Donald Trump and members of his cabinet and family with some of the greatest “Real Housewives” moments over the years.  Yes, Abby Lee Miller and a Kardashian or two slip in there, but given how Trump is a former reality star president who allegedly counts Sonja Morgan as a former consultant, there’s something undeniably Housewife-ian ― let it happen ― about No. 45. Even Andy Cohen thinks so.  In the thread, Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner and Steve Bannon all get the housewives treatment because, as the great philosopher Ramona Singer once said, “If people can’t handle the truth, it’s really not my problem.” State of the Union in GIFs (Tweets by @VictoriaAveyard) -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Eighties pop heart-throbs Bros return: ‘We’re like Noel and Liam’

From police escorts, private jets and fan hysteria to catastrophic debt, not speaking and new careers, the Goss brothers are back – but Ken doesn’t want to playHello Bros! You’re back! After 25 years!Luke Goss (drums): In a weird way, I’ve always been in Bros. It’s always had a presence and suddenly we had a conversation and it was just: “Let’s go play some fucking music again. Even if there’s one person in the audience.” We had jams, over the years, either at my brother’s place or my place, but when we decided to come back we were in a music store. It was probably the most low-key reunion in popular music history. Continue reading...

Thursday's Morning Email: The Latest In The Comey Fallout

TOP STORIES (And want to get The Morning Email each weekday? Sign up here.) THE COMEY FALLOUT CONTINUES Multiple reports indicated that days before his firing, James Comey had asked for additional people and funding for the investigation into Russia’s influence in the 2016 election. While President Donald Trump tried to tamp down the outcry over Comey’s firing, reports surfaced about the president’s anger directed at the former FBI director. Here’s why the deputy director of the FBI, who is currently interim director, is under investigation by the Department of Justice ― which is already interviewing people for the interim job. The deputy attorney general is reported to have threatened to quit following the White House narrative that it was his recommendation to fire Comey. Here’s what it’s like inside the FBI right now. And read Comey’s final letter to the staff of the FBI, where he writes: “I will be fine, although I will miss you and the mission deeply.” [HuffPost] CHAFFETZ CALLS FOR DOJ TO EXPAND RUSSIAN PROBE TO INCLUDE COMEY’S FIRING While the Republican House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz thinks the probe should be expanded, House Speaker Paul Ryan has sided with Trump over Comey’s firing. All the while, the Senate Intelligence Committee has subpoenaed Michael Flynn for Russia-related documents. [HuffPost] RUSSIAN PRESS ALLOWED ACCESS TO TRUMP’S WHITE HOUSE MEETING WITH RUSSIA’S FOREIGN MINISTER While the meeting was closed to the rest of the press in a move Andrea Mitchell called “unprecedented.” [HuffPost] AND HERE’S AN INTERVIEW RUSSIAN PRESIDENT VLADIMIR PUTIN GAVE ABOUT COMEY’S FIRING While in hockey gear. [HuffPost] MORE BAD REVELATIONS FOR FOX The company has now paid $45 million for Roger Ailes’ sexual harassment settlements, and reports have surfaced about an incident where Bill O’Reilly dragged his ex-wife down the stairs. [HuffPost] AS DEPARTMENT STORES CLOSE, THIS ONLINE MAIL-ORDER CLOTHES SERVICE THRIVES Stitch Fix has gained popularity by taking out the shopping part of shopping for clothes. [NYT] WHO EVEN WANTS TO FLY ANY MORE? After news of the latest airline brawl. [HuffPost] WHAT’S BREWING SEWAGE SAVED THIS MAN’S LIFE. SOMEDAY IT COULD SAVE YOURS. “When Thomas Patterson woke up from a two-month coma in March 2016, he learned two things he couldn’t believe: Donald Trump was soon to become the Republican nominee for president, and his wife, Steffanie Strathdee, had saved him from dying of an antibiotic-resistant superbug by injecting him with viruses harvested from sewage.” [HuffPost] LIFE EXPECTANCY IN THIS COUNTY IS LOWER THAN SUDAN’S Welcome to Oglala Lakota County, South Dakota. [HuffPost] HOLD ONTO YOUR RED WINE GLASS Turns out we only have one more season of “Scandal” and Olivia Pope left. [HuffPost] WHEN TRUTH IS STRANGER THAN FICTION Here’s how Frank Underwood and “Parks and Recreation” have weighed in on the Comey firing.

What you need to know about “avocado hand.” Why nuns are winning 2017. Talk about a bad day: Snapchat founders just lost a billion each. Why the casting of a white actor as a Native Hawaiian matters. No, but really: Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson wants to be president. The clip highlighting the upcoming return of Spicey is all we could ever want from Melissa McCarthy and “SNL.” Inside the resurgence of neglected tropical diseases in the South.

Stephen Colbert Had A ‘Daily Show’ Reunion Just When You Needed It Most

They’re back!  On Tuesday night, Stephen Colbert brought some of his former “Daily Show” colleagues onto the set of “The Late Show” to talk about old times.  Colbert was joined by former “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart along with Samantha Bee and John Oliver ― each of whom now host their own late-night shows ― as well as Ed Helms and Rob Corddry, who have lucrative TV and movie careers.  In the first segment, above, the crew flash-back to 2005. “I know there’s one thing for sure,” Bee deadpanned to the camera. “There is no scenario in which I will ever say ‘God, I wish George W. Bush was president.”  Check it out above.  Then, the group participated in a two-part interview, complete with clips from some of their earliest “Daily Show” pieces.  “This arrangement that we have right now is exactly something we would have made fun off on the ‘Daily Show,’” Colbert said. “It looks fake. It looks like a morning show right now.” -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Long Lost Family: What Happened Next review – if this doesn't make you blub, you're a robot

This sequel series to the programmes that reunited long-separated family members brims with heart-stopping momentsYou know when you make olive oil? You press the olives, then you press them again to get more out ... Well, maybe not you (unless you’re actually Filippo Berio, I know Filippo reads this column), but olive oil makers. Well this – Long Lost Family: What Happened Next (ITV) – is a bit like that, a second pressing. Same people, same stories, more to come out.Not olive oil, clearly, but tears. Their tears, your tears, my tears, so many tears, television doesn’t get more teary. Because it’s about the things that most make people cry: separation, unhappy childhoods, memories, loneliness, searching, and then – hopefully – reunion, happy tears. You might have tried to fight it, said you weren’t going to have your emotions manipulated again, you’re first-pressing, extra-virgin only … but if you got involved and watched, it will have got to you again, reopened those floodgates.

Fact: U.S. and Nazi Soldiers Fought as Allies Once During World War II

Sebastien Roblin Security, Europe A strange Second World War tale. In 1943, Heinrich Himmler, leader of the SS and an all-around monster, decided it would be a good idea to take the top members of France’s political and cultural elite and imprison them in a medieval castle in Austria. That sentence alone should tell you that the Nazis’ predilection for acts of Hollywood villainy was deep-seated and incurable. But real events soon became stranger than fiction. A small American recon platoon managed to liberate the captives during the closing days of the war, and fought a desperate last stand to prevent their SS captors from returning. Fighting alongside the small American force against the Waffen SS were more than a dozen Wehrmacht (Army) soldiers—making the Battle at Itter Castle possibly the only engagement in which U.S. and German troops fought on the same side in World War II. This unique conflict has been most thoroughly documented in The Last Battle by Stephen Harding, whose book has since been optioned as a movie—and inspired a heavy-metal music video. Harding’s work particularly focuses on the fourteen French notables stuck in the castle, which included both French prime ministers at the start of World War II, Édouard Daladier and Paul Reynaud, and top military commanders Maxime Weygand and Maurice Gamelin. For a good measure they also threw in Marie-Agnès Cailliau, the sister of the current leader of the Free French; Michel Clemenceau, son of the French leader during World War I; and French tennis star Jean Borotra—because, well, why not? There were also several wives and one husband who elected to join their partners in the prison. This forced reunion of French VIPs, many of whom passionately hated each other, included both Vichy collaborators, such as Borotra and Weygand, and members of the Resistance, some of them transferred there from concentration camps. It had the making of a grotesque hostage situation—or, the captives feared, a soon-infamous massacre. Read full article

Stephen Colbert Is Reuniting Your Favorites From 'The Daily Show'

Remember when Matt LeBlanc didn’t want the “Friends” cast to reunite on his spinoff show “Joey” because he had a deep desire to make it on his own and viewers were like, We just want to see those funny friends together again; what is this Los Angeles-based abomination? Well, this isn’t exactly like that, but now that Stephen Colbert is beating the Jimmys (Kimmel and Fallon) in the late-night ratings wars, the former “Daily Show” comedian is getting his own friends back together for a reunion. Next week on May 9, Jon Stewart, Samantha Bee, John Oliver, Ed Helms and Rob Corddry will all be guests on Colbert’s “The Late Show.” All except Helms have been on the show before, but this is the first reunion of the full group. Unfortunately, Steve Carrell is not scheduled to appear, but maybe he’ll show up via PiperChat Google Hangouts or some other remote method. Both Colbert’s show and competitor Jimmy Fallon’s are heading into sweeps — a good opportunity for Colbert to ensure his viewership ratings are particularly high. What will it be like when “The Daily Show” crew reunites? Will Stephen’s first line to the newly reunited cast be, “How you been doin’?” Tune in to find out. function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidible_track(e)}!function(e,i){if(e.vdb_Player){if('object'==typeof commercial_video){var a='',o='m.fwsitesection='+commercial_video.site_and_category;if(a+=o,commercial_video['package']){var c='&m.fwkeyvalues=sponsorship%3D'+commercial_video['package'];a+=c}e.setAttribute('vdb_params',a)}i(e.vdb_Player)}else{var t=arguments.callee;setTimeout(function(){t(e,i)},0)}}(document.getElementById('vidible_1'),onPlayerReadyVidible); -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.
