’I stand with Greta’: Mnuchin’s wife posts — then deletes — support for climate activist
Publisher:  POLITICO
Saturday, 25 January 2020 18:14


Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin’s wife on Saturday appeared to publicly break with her husband over support for Greta Thunberg's climate change activism.

“I stand with Greta on this issue. (I don’t have a degree in economics either),� actress Louise Linton wrote in a now-deleted Instagram post after Mnuchin chided the 17-year-old’s call for governments to end their support of fossil fuels at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, saying she should attend college and study economics.

“Is she the chief economist? Who is she, I’m confused,� Mnuchin was quoted as saying during a news conference before later claiming he was joking.

Thunberg responded to Mnunchin’s apparent dismissal of her by tweeting out a graph from a U.N. report on the world’s remaining carbon budget, a topic she also addressed in her Davos speech.

“My gap year ends in August, but it doesn’t take a college degree in economics to realise that our remaining 1,5° carbon budget and ongoing fossil fuel subsidies and investments don’t add up,â€� Thunberg wrote without addressing Mnuchin by name.

“So either you tell us how to achieve this mitigation or explain to future generations and those already affected by the climate emergency why we should abandon our climate commitments,� she added.

Linton echoed Thunberg’s position in her post.

“We need to drastically reduce our use of fossil fuels,� she wrote. “Keep up the fight @gretathunberg.�


The post was deleted after about 30 minutes according to journalist Olivia Nuzzi, who flagged the post to her followers.

Mnuchin isn’t the only member of the Trump administration to mock Thunberg, who has gained worldwide fame for her support of climate change initiatives.

“So ridiculous. Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill!� President Donald Trump, who has routinely gone after Thunberg for her activism, tweeted in December after she was named Time’s Person of the Year.


Sat Jan 25 '20 Announcement from Art We There Yet?

Hello dear backer family!

We have started a video series of musicians recorded in the first four months of Art We There Yet.

These are paths that crossed ours. Some are souls met by pure, random chance along the way. Others are friends from the distant past that we planned to visit from the start.

Aspiring young artists, seasoned professionals, and student songwriters. Jazz, country, hip-hop, old-time, and folk. Covers and originals.

The vision for this series is still evolving, so you’ll see changes in production style throughout. And videos in the future will probably look different.

In the meantime, here are some souls from across a wide spectrum of backgrounds and places. Souls who share a common thread:

The love of music.

Here are the first two videos!

‘Bachelor’ Alum Jade Roper Stripped Of $1 Million DraftKings Prize After Being Accused Of Cheating

Jade Roper attends The Season 6 Premiere of Marriage Boot Camp Reality Stars at Up & Down on September 22, 2016 in New York City.

Bachelor alum Jade Roper is losing out on her $1 million prize after the fantasy sports site DraftKings apparently determined that she and husband Tanner Tolbert broke the rules to win it.

Roper made headlines earlier this year when she came in first place in a Millionaire Maker fantasy football competition during the NFL’s wild card weekend. As Us Weekly reported, the contest had been under investigation after it came forward that both Tanner and Jade made the maximum number of entries and that all 300 entries between them were unique. That pointed to the couple coordinating in order to get around the site’s rules, which prevent people from working together to enter more than the maximum amount.

The site announced on Saturday that it had provided retroactive updates to some tournaments, not mentioning Jade directly.

Former NFL All-Pro Receiver Hints at Desire To Sign With Patriots
Publisher:  Heavy.com
Saturday, 25 January 2020 18:08

Dez Bryant is once again teasing his desire to sign with the New England Patriots.

A couple months prior, Bryant flat-out stated that he’s interested in signing with the Patriots — among several other teams. Fast forward to late January towards the conclusion of the 2019 season and the former All-Pro and Pro Bowl wide receiver is hinting at suiting up for the Patriots again.

Check out one of Bryant’s latest tweets where it appears he teases not only signing with the Patriots, but possibly the Dallas Cowboys, Baltimore Ravens and a black and gold team — presumably, the New Orleans Saints.


Bryant Has History With the Cowboys and Saints

As far as the Cowboys and Saints are concerned, Bryant has previously been under contract for both teams. Bryant played his entire eight-year career with the Cowboys from 2010 until 2017 and is the franchise leader in career touchdowns.

And as far as the Saints are concerned, although Bryant never appeared in an official game with the franchise, he was signed by the team midway through the 2018 season. Unfortunately for Bryant, he tore his Achilles and was immediately placed on injured reserve.

Bryant has teased his return before, doing so late in the 2019 season over Twitter. He mentioned several teams — all of whom were considered championship contenders.

In other words, Bryant’s tune hasn’t changed much over the past season. This time around, he forgot to mention the Kansas City Chiefs. But the other four teams’ color schemes were mentioned in his latest tweet.


Would the Patriots Be Interested in Signing Dez Bryant?

Although the Patriots do desperately need pass catchers — the offensive unit ranked 16th in receiving touchdowns and 18th in yards per attempt — there’s a major question of whether the Patriots would even be interested in the 31-year-old wide receiver.

As just mentioned, Bryant is 31 years old. By the time 2020 comes around, it will have been three full seasons since the veteran wide receiver has appeared in an NFL game. Furthermore, he’s coming off of an Achilles’ injury that he suffered at the age of 30. There aren’t many receivers who regain their explosion when suffering such a serious injury at an advanced age.

Furthermore, it has to be a bit concerning that Bryant echoed his desire to return during the 2019 season — which one would assume meant he was fully healthy — and not a single NFL team showed even a little bit of interest. Bryant didn’t have any reported workouts with the aforementioned NFL teams this season.

However, if there is one positive, it’s this — Bryant would come on the cheap and with no risk. The Patriots could always sign Bryant to the veteran’s minimum on an incentive-laden contract and merely just cut him if he’s not good enough to contribute.

It’s worth noting that Bryant has expressed nothing but positive compliments about Bill Belichick and Tom Brady on Twitter. He has even stated that he would be willing to play a secondary role on a team — meaning he doesn’t need to be a starter.
