Des images contre les clichés sur les oubliés de Calais

Dans son livre 
Des hommes vivent ici (1), 
la photographe Marion Osmont raconte le quotidien des migrants le long du littoral de la 
Manche, dix ans après 
la fermeture du camp de Sangatte. Un travail
 plein d’humanité 
et de dignité.

calais_m

Un grand hangar vide. Au loin, un groupe d’hommes. Sept ou huit Africains, assis ou debout autour d’une table, jouent aux cartes. Un clair-obscur d’humanité au milieu du néant. « Je suis contente d’avoir pu prendre cette image, raconte son auteure, la photographe Marion Osmont. Berlusconi, le passeur (en capuche – NDLR), m’a dit “Tu fais ce que tu veux”, cet état de grâce a duré trois secondes. Cette image montre l’attente d’une journée ordinaire. Il ne se passe rien. »

Pendant plus de deux ans, Marion Osmont a photographié la vie quotidienne des migrants de Calais. Elle publie ces photos dans un livre au titre éloquent Des hommes vivent ici. D’une grande sobriété, ses images montrent la vie dans le dépouillement : la préparation du feu, la cuisine, les nuits dans le squat, l’ennui, le linge qui sèche sur un arbre, la traque, le froid, la peur. Loin des clichés vus et revus sur les migrants de Calais, les photos de Marion Osmont sont remplies d’humanité et de dignité.

« On parle trop souvent d’eux et de nous »

Son travail est le résultat d’une démarche mûrement réfléchie. « On parle trop souvent d’eux et de nous. Je ne voulais surtout pas ça. Je pense que beaucoup de gens, s’ils savaient ce qu’il se passe à Calais, ne trouveraient pas ça normal. J’ai donc travaillé à créer de l’empathie. » MarionOsmontcouv

Pour cela, la photographe s’attache à suivre deux migrants « au plus près », Ammanuel et Haroon. Les deux hommes ne se laissent pas simplement photographier, ils sont des acteurs à part entière de la démarche du livre. « Ils m’ont montré des lieux, des campements, m’ont raconté leurs parcours. Ce n’était pas facile pour eux, mais il leur paraissait important que leur histoire soit connue. Pour que ça puisse provoquer des changements. »

Deux migrants suivis au quotidien

Marion Osmont attend quelques semaines après le démantèlement de la jungle pachtoune en septembre 2009 pour commencer son travail. « Tous les migrants étaient revenus, il fallait montrer que cette opération n’avait servi à rien. » Parisienne, elle passe ses week-ends à Calais pour suivre ces deux migrants qui ne sont pas « de passage », contrairement à ce que prétendent les ministres de l’Immigration de Nicolas Sarkozy. Tous les deux demandeurs d’asile, ils attendent la réponse de l’Office français des réfugiés (Ofpra) dans le plus total dénuement.

Des hommes vivent ici montre la vie des migrants en plan large. « C’est une forme de respect, dit-elle. Ils sont sous pression en permanence, les flics les réveillent toutes les nuits, les journalistes peuvent être parfois intrusifs. Je voulais des photos assez douces. » Exclues donc les images de la distribution, où l’on voit les migrants dans les files d’attente ou manger sur un bout de trottoir. Pendant longtemps, la photographe s’est aussi refusée à immortaliser ces séances durant lesquelles les migrants se brûlent les doigts pour échapper aux renvois vers d’autres pays d’Europe.

Trajet décomposé

Dans cette vie quotidienne calaisienne, la police est omniprésente. Dès l’aube, lorsqu’elle intervient dans les squats pour arrêter les migrants. Dans les évacuations de campements ou les destructions de squats. À chaque fois, il faut trouver un nouvel endroit où dormir, toujours plus loin, plus caché. Dans la série de photos Chez Haroon, Marion Osmont décompose le trajet pour rejoindre la cachette du Soudanais : « Traverser un hangar / se glisser dans un trou / longer un tunnel aménagé sous le sol / passer un premier mur / marcher le long d’un corridor à travers ronces / passer un deuxième mur / marcher sur un toit / passer par une fenêtre cassée / monter un escalier défoncé. » Délogé, Haroon devra s’installer encore plus loin…

Aujourd’hui, Haroon et Ammanuel, tous deux déboutés du droit d’asile après des années d’attente, sont partis vers d’autres horizons. « Je les imagine quelque part en Europe, à la rue», dit Marion Osmont. Encore plus brisés que lors de leur arrivée à Calais, il y a quelques années. « Il était encore temps de les aider alors. Avec des soins psychologiques, peut-être qu’ils auraient pu se récupérer. C’est un immense gâchis. » Aujourd’hui, environ 300 migrants survivent à Calais même. Quelque 500 autres s’éparpillent dans des petits campements le long du littoral. Dans des conditions toujours plus précaires.

Selling Dog Meat May Be Banned At This Year’s Yulin Dog Meat Festival

Animal rights activists are reporting that the local government in Yulin, China, will be banning the sale of dog meat at the city?s controversial Lychee and Dog Meat Festival in June.

However, officials in Yulin did not confirm the ban when questioned by media outlets, leading some to question whether the purported ban is happening at all.

The annual festival, which involves the sale and consumption of dog and cat meat, has incited protests both within China and internationally. National Geographic reports that in China, young people in particular are opposed to the dog meat trade.

According to Humane Society International and the Duo Duo Project, officials told traders that restaurants, vendors and market traders will be temporarily prohibited from selling dog meat, beginning one week before the June 21 festival. Peter Li, HSI?s China policy specialist, said the ban is set to last until the festival is over and that there?s no evidence the ban includes any restrictions on cat meat.

But city officials would not confirm any ban at all when both The New York Times and the BBC reached out to them. The BBC also reports that ?some vendors? told the outlet they hadn?t heard of a ban.

But Humane Society International told HuffPost it is confident in its sources and that it isn?t surprised Yulin officials won?t confirm the ban to the media.

?It?s likely not in [the local government?s] interests to appear to be responding to national or global pressure,? Wendy Higgins, HSI international media director, said in an email. ?The contacts in China of HSI and Duo Duo Project have spoken directly with a number of traders, all of whom confirm the ban, and that traders were told to attend a meeting at which the ban was explained.?

So, what would be the point of a ban if officials won?t confirm it?

Li said the likely goal is to prevent activists and journalists from taking gruesome-looking photos of canine carcasses.

?What the authorities are trying to accomplish is not a ban announcement, but the disappearance of slaughtered dog bodies,? he said.

And Higgins said that not formally announcing the ban was a logical strategic move.

?If the ban is a failure, the officials can say ?what ban?? because they never confirmed it, and if it is a success, they can say ?see what we have done? and hopefully build on it next year until the problem goes away,? she told HuffPost.

In an interview with the BBC, Li said the policy appears to stem from the new Communist Party secretary of Yulin, Mo Gong Ming, who wants to improve the city?s reputation around the world.

Opponents of the Yulin festival often face criticism from those who point out it?s irrational to be more outraged over the slaughter of dogs than the slaughter of less traditionally cute and fuzzy animals like pigs and chickens ? which are killed and eaten in far greater numbers worldwide.

But Li countered that there are specific reasons to oppose the Yulin festival besides the species of animals involved. For one thing, he said, dogs killed in the festival are often stolen pets. Eating dog meat is legal in China (as well as in many U.S. states), but stealing dogs is not.

?Dogs slaughtered for food come from suspicious sources,? he said. ?Many are stolen pets and rural guard dogs.? He noted that Chinese activists would protest a beef festival, too, if the animals were stolen cattle.

And Higgins pointed out that many groups, including HSI, that oppose the dog meat festivals also actively fight for the rights of all animals that suffer in the food industry.

?HSI doesn?t shy away from exposing and challenging the suffering of all animals killed for food around the world, including in Western countries such as the U.K. and U.S.,? she said. ?Whilst we realize that we can?t stop the suffering of all animals for the food industry overnight, we shouldn?t use the suffering of pigs or chickens in one country as an excuse for inaction to stop the suffering of dogs in another country.?

U.N. Sees Slavery Risk As Number Of Solo Migrant Children Hits Record High

A record number of refugee and migrant children are traveling solo to escape violence and poverty, falling prey to abuse and human traffickers in their journey to a new life, the United Nations children?s agency said on Wednesday.

Be it to escape war in Syria or gang violence in Central America, natural disaster or famine, increasing numbers of children are on the move and are traveling alone, UNICEF said in a report.

About 200,000 unaccompanied children applied for asylum across 80 countries from 2015 to 2016 and another 100,000 children were stopped at the U.S.-Mexico border, UNICEF said.

Taken together, 300,000 children traveled alone worldwide from 2015 to 2016 – a five-fold increase since 2010, when 66,000 children were reported to be on the move, UNICEF said.

?Ruthless smugglers and traffickers are exploiting their vulnerability for personal gain, helping children to cross borders, only to sell them into slavery and forced prostitution,? Justin Forsyth,UNICEF deputy executive director, said in a statement.

?It is unconscionable that we are not adequately defending children from these predators.?

UNICEF said the central Mediterranean route between north Africa and Italy is one of the world?s deadliest, with 4,579 deaths last year, including some 700 children, many from Eritrea, Gambia, Nigeria, Egypt and Guinea.

Unaccompanied and separated children accounted for 92 percent of all children arriving in Italy by sea last year.

While the Mediterranean route is favored by traffickers – some children have even had organs removed – traffickers are also active on other routes, the report said.

Boys and girls account for three in every five victims of human trafficking in Central America and the Caribbean, according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime.

Many of them face likely sexual exploitation, said Maria Cristina Perceval, UNICEF?s Latin America regional director.

?Because the difference with this and other crimes and exploitation is that a girl who is exploited sexually is seen as merchandise that can be used again and again,? Perceval told the Thomson Reuters Foundation in a phone interview.

Most children from Central America migrate to escape gang violence and poverty, or to join relatives living abroad.

UNICEF said human smugglers who guide children along their journey use rape, violence and extortion en route.

One migrant, 17-year-old Mary from Nigeria, was trapped in Libya for more than three months where she was raped by her smuggler as she tried to reach Italy, UNICEF said.

?He said to me, if I didn?t sleep with him, he would not bring me to Europe. He raped me,? Mary, who traveled alone, is quoted as saying.

Some smugglers operate a ?pay as you go? deal ? asking for no money up front, but later demanding sums children may not be able to pay. They are then put to work to pay off the debt, through forced labor and prostitution, the report said.

One migrant, 16-year-old Aimamo, said he and his twin brother were forced to work on a farm in Libya for two months to pay their smugglers.

?If you try to run they shoot you and you die. If you stop working, they beat you,? Aimamo is quoted as saying in the report. ?After working, they lock you inside.?

Someone Broke Into Amber Rose’s Home And Straight-Up Chilled For Hours

Amber Rose is the latest celebrity to fall victim to a home invasion. 

When the homes of the rich and famous are vandalized, the intruders typically grab the goods and go. But the man who broke into Rose?s Los Angeles home early Wednesday morning stayed put for hours while she slept soundly in a nearby room, according to TMZ, which was first to report the break-in.  

He reportedly gained entry between the hours of 6 a.m. and 10 a.m. through her pantry by breaking a kitchen window. Rose, along with her mother, son, assistant, and bodyguards were all in the residence at the time, but somehow no one noticed that the man remained in the home for four hours. Her assistant reportedly even got up to make food while the intruder was in the house and didn?t suspect anything. 

It wasn?t until Rose noticed shattered glass in the kitchen area later that morning and checked her home surveillance footage that she discovered video evidence of a man breaking in and then leaving hours later. She then phoned the police who are now investigating the crime. 

Nobody was harmed in the home invasion and the suspect reportedly didn?t even make off with any of Rose?s possessions. 

Rose?s home invasion is part of a string of attacks on homes of celebrities including Emmy Rossum, Kendall Jenner and Jaime Pressly in recent months. Earlier that same day, armed robbers reportedly broke into rapper A$AP Rocky?s Beverly Grove home, a mere 12 miles away from Rose?s residence, and made off with $1 million in cash and jewelry.

Goya Foods Makes ‘Business Decision’ To Pull Sponsorship Of Puerto Rican Day Parade

Goya Foods will not sponsor this year?s Puerto Rican Day Parade. The decision ends, until further notice, the company?s continuous 60-year partnership with the organization behind the annual event. 

The New Jersey-based company cited a ?business decision? as the reason for pulling their sponsorship of the annual event that?s being held in New York City on July 11 this year. The Puerto Rican Day Parade, which also hosts a variety of other cultural, educational and social events, said the decision could affect the students who receive scholarships from the non-profit organization.  

?Goya has made a business decision not to participate in this year?s Puerto Rican Day Parade,? the company said in a statement to HuffPost on Wednesday. 

As for whether the decision would apply for future Puerto Rican Day Parades, the company said ?that has not been decided.?

On Monday night, the Spanish-language newspaper El Diario reported that Director of Public Relations of Goya Foods Rafael Toro had written a letter to the Puerto Rican Day Parade saying they had withdrawn their sponsorship because the company had been targeted by boycotts that opposed the parade?s intentions of honoring recently released Puerto Rican nationalist Oscar López Rivera.   

The company told HuffPost ?the letter was false and NOT written by Rafael Toro… or any employees or affiliates of Goya Foods.? El Diario has since removed any mention of the letter in their report. 

In response to Goya Food?s decision to end the six-decade-long sponsorship, the Puerto Rican Day Parade issued the following statement to the New York Daily News on Tuesday:

We are very disappointed at Goya for pulling out of our Parade via a phone call and with no rationale other than ?it was a business decision.? We have learned more through the press, since we have not yet received any official notification, in writing. After a 60-year partnership, we would expect to, at the very least, discuss this very serious matter face-to-face. In the end, Goya is jeopardizing the parade?s commitment to 100 college and college-bound students who stood to receive parade scholarships.

HuffPost also reached out to the organization for comment but had not heard back at the time of publication.

What You Should Know If You Love Someone With High-Functioning Depression

Everything feels a lot harder when you?re dealing with high-functioning depression ? including relationships.

Experts say the condition often isn?t noticeable to most people, because those who experience it tend to mask it well. This arguably makes the disorder difficult for partners to detect and the people who deal with it hesitant to speak up in the first place.

The symptoms are aligned with those of depression, including irritability and extreme sadness. But the average observer wouldn?t necessarily know it based on how the sufferer is acting.

Luckily, knowledge is power. Education about mental health issues helps people who don?t experience them understand the disorders a little bit better. And in a world where only 25 percent of people with mental illness feel like others are sympathetic to their condition, compassion can go a long way.

We asked our Facebook communities to share some truths they wished their loved ones knew about high-functioning depression. Here?s what they had to say:

1. High-functioning depression zaps energy.

?I wish my fiancé understood that some days, I can?t turn my depression off. I can?t always just get out of bed immediately and take on the day like he does. I need to motivate and really push myself to do so, and it takes a great amount of effort.? ?Lindsey Diamond 

2. Just because the condition is hard to see, doesn?t mean it isn?t there.

?I may seem happy and I am able to joke, but when I get home, the mask comes off and I cannot function beyond basic necessities … Everything is difficult.? ?Theresa Allen 

3. Sometimes it stands in the way of social gatherings.

?[I want them to] stop demanding that I attend every party with them because they need to know I want some time alone.? ?Samra Suleman

4. Other times it helps to stay distracted.

?For me, it is having to be busy at all times. The point is to mentally exhaust myself so the bad thoughts don?t creep in as I lie in bed each night.? ?Katherine Deubner 

5. The condition isn?t anyone?s fault.

?I wish he knew when I?m at my low points it?s no ones fault. Sometimes I?m just sad, sometimes I just need to lay in bed, sometimes I need him to do what I normally do around the house.? ?Sandra Ringle 

6. There?s often no explanation for why it?s happening.

?I wish my partner knew that there is rarely (if ever) a specific ?cause? to my depressed states. I do not have a tangible answer to the question, ?What?s wrong??? ?Beranger LeFranc

7. It feels like an internal battle.

?Basically it?s like an argument between my heart and my brain. While I?m crying my heart out my brain thinks, ?What the hell is wrong with you. Look at how great things are!? And my heart says, ?If you can?t figure it out, we?re going to die.? That?s what it seems like when for no obvious reason I find myself in a total emotional meltdown.? ?Michael Aldieri 

8. High-functioning depression is unintentionally isolating.

?I wish he knew that I don?t want to shut him out, I just don?t know how to let him in.? ?Liv Kerr

9. An affectionate gesture goes a long way.

?I just need to be held and then left alone for a while. What I?m feeling is as if I?m underwater and my lungs can?t get air.? ?Sandra Ringle

10. It?s hardly in a person?s control.

?I wish my partner understood how little control I really have over my depression. I can do every little thing correctly, eating right, taking care of myself, exercising daily, centering my mind with yoga and all it takes is one trigger to undo all that work.? ?Emily Maia 

11. You?re not doing anything wrong.

?I wish he knew that even though he is the most amazing man I?ve ever met, there is a piece of me that is broken and it has nothing to do with him. He could make me smile every day, but as soon as that switch gets flipped I will have a really hard time being able to pump the brakes on my depression and anxiety.? ?Emily Thomas

12. Your support is so important.

?I wish he knew how overwhelming being sad during a depressive state is … sometimes it would be really nice to get a hug, instead of just the cold shoulder and being ignored because it is difficult to understand. Support is worth more than words could ever say.? ?Avarie Downs 

The bottom line is this: Don?t give up on someone with high-functioning depression. Your love means everything.

However Well Black Students Perform, Teachers Still Think They’re Struggling

Hua-Yu Sebastian Cherng, assistant professor of international education at New York University, has written thousands of pages? worth of research and commentary over the course of his career. But growing up, his teachers gave him no reason to believe he would end up in this position. As an Asian-American student living in Maryland, he consistently ran up against stereotypes suggesting that he should be uninterested or incompetent in English language arts. 

In elementary school, Cherng was placed in remedial English, even though there was no evidence he needed it. When he won a high school poetry contest, he said, an English teacher reacted with indifference.

He attributes the behavior to stereotypes that Asian students are foreign-born, and thus at a disadvantage in English language arts. Instead, teachers expected Cherng to excel in math, even though that?s a subject in which he would have appreciated extra help.

?I was born in the U.S. and having many English teachers assume I wasn?t interested in the topic or that I wasn?t good at English, it became a self-fulfilling prophecy,? Cherng said. ?At the end of high school, I thought I wasn?t good at writing.?

Because of Cherng?s experiences, he was less than surprised at the outcome of his latest research looking at the relationship between teacher expectations and student achievement. Stereotypes about students? race and class affect how math and English teachers expect students to perform, even after taking students? test scores and rates of homework completion into account, according to the research.

Math and English teachers are significantly more likely to think their classes are too difficult for black and Latino students. English teachers also have lower expectations for Asian students. This, in turn, negatively affects these students? expectations of themselves. 

Black students, in particular, bear the brunt of low expectations. Compared to white students, math and English teachers are more than twice as likely to say that black students cannot handle the difficulty of their classes.

However, black students do not shirk these academic challenges, even in the face of bias. Overall, students? grades are negatively impacted by teachers? underestimations, per Cherng?s research. However, black students? grades do not suffer as much as those of other groups, even though they face heightened prejudices. These results suggest a ?narrative of resistance,? in which black students work extra hard to prove their teachers wrong, according to Cherng.

In an optimistic way, it?s a problem we can solve. If we change things like how we train teachers… I think [it] could make a world of difference.
Hua-Yu Sebastian Cherng, assistant professor of international education at New York University

?If a student is in a classroom and can sense a teacher thinks poorly of them, black students in particular may resist that narrative, resist fulfilling that narrative, and within the classroom may be able to fight it,? Cherng said. ?This could translate as not being as harmed as other students in the short term or medium term.?

In the long run, though, these biases can be devastating. Black students hold harsh views about whether or not they can succeed in higher education.

?The longer-term consequences on things, like whether or not they think they can go to college, it takes years to form these ideas,? Cherng said. ?In that sense, it?s a more subtle influence that can actually hurt black students more than other students.?

To glean his results, Cherng used data from the Education Longitudinal Study of 2002, which surveyed 10,000 high school students and their teachers. This survey asked teachers about their expectations of students, which Cherng then compared to students? expectations of themselves and their GPAs. 

While the results are depressing, Cherng says they also give him reason to hope. 

?In an optimistic way, it?s a problem we can solve,? he said. ?If we change things like how we train teachers, if we change things like making teachers able to acknowledge that they have biases, I think [it] could make a world of difference.?

Protecting The Environment And Growing The Economy Go Hand-In-Hand

San Francisco has reduced its carbon emissions by 28 percent since 1990, while growing its GDP by 79 percent. And it?s far from alone. Across the country, cities have been proving that protecting the environment and growing the economy go hand-in-hand.

A big part of this story is that cities ? large and small, in red and blue states ? have been transitioning away from coal and toward cleaner sources of energy. Clean energy sources are at their cheapest prices in history, and since burning coal leads to asthma, lung disease, cancer, heart disease, birth defects, and countless other illnesses, consumers are increasingly demanding cleaner energy. As a result, coal production is no longer economically competitive.

In fact, since 2010, nearly half of all U.S. coal plants have closed or switched to cleaner energy sources. As a result, the number of Americans dying each year from pollution from coal-fired power plants has been cut from 13,000 to about 7,500. That is great news for our health and environment ? and it?s also been good for our economy.

Today, nearly a half million people work in the solar and wind industries, while only about 65,000 people work in coal mines. Jobs in the mines started dying long before coal plants started to close, because technology has allowed coal companies to mine with very few miners. There were more than 800,000 miners in the U.S. in the 1920s. By the time coal production peaked in 2008, the number was down to 82,000. As cleaner energy replaces coal, that number has fallen even further.

We ought to demand that government leaders do more to spur job growth outside of mining in coal communities.

In the years ahead, as the price of clean energy continues to fall, clean energy jobs will continue to grow ? and cities like San Francisco are helping to lead the way. Seventy percent of greenhouse gas emissions come from urban areas, which means that cities play a vital role in accelerating the transition to cleaner energy.

San Francisco is one of twelve U.S. cities that belong to the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group. Together, the twelve have pledged to deliver up to 131 million metric tons of CO2 savings by 2025. As part of this work, San Francisco has pledged to make its electricity at least 50 percent renewable by 2020, and 100 percent by 2030. And technology companies, from Apple to Facebook, have turned to clean energy as well?because they recognize that doing so is good for their business.

Replacing coal with energy from solar, wind, and natural gas is bringing broad benefits to communities across the U.S. But the economic side effects ? the lost jobs in coal ? are concentrated in a few regions.

We cannot forget that coal workers powered America for more than a century. In recent years, coal companies have been walking away from the health care and pension obligations they owe their workers, while politicians have been making promises they can?t possibly keep about putting miners back to work. We should not tolerate either.

The economic reality is coal mining jobs aren?t coming back. Washington can no more save those jobs than it could have saved the jobs of horse-and-buggy drivers 100 years ago. Instead, we ought to demand that government leaders do more to spur job growth outside of mining in coal communities. San Francisco?s transition to 50 percent renewable sources is expected to generate over 5,000 clean energy jobs in the solar and wind industries.

The impact of coal on our health and planet, and what we can do to help coal communities affected by job losses, is the subject of a new film that will air next month on the National Geographic Channel called ?From the Ashes,? co-produced by Bloomberg Philanthropies. The film features several organizations in the Western and Appalachian regions that are providing economic development assistance and job training for out-of-work miners. To support this work and raise awareness of the need for more of it, Bloomberg Philanthropies has created a $3 million grant for these organizations and is matching donations from the public.

Citizens, cities, and businesses are leading where Washington won?t. Together, we can build a coal-free future that benefits all Americans, in all regions of the country ? while also allowing the United States to continue to be a global leader on climate change.

John McCain: Trump Scandals ‘Reaching Watergate Size And Scale’

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) just used the ?W? word when talking about the growing scandals surrounding President Donald Trump

?We?ve seen this movie before. It?s reaching Watergate size and scale,? he said at a Republican event on Tuesday night, according to GOP strategist Ana Navarro. ?This is not good for the country.?

However, despite the Watergate comparison, McCain also said he was against appointing a special prosecutor, according to New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman. 

McCain was speaking to Bob Schieffer of CBS News at the International Republican Institute dinner hours after news broke that Trump reportedly asked James Comey, who was FBI director at the time, to drop his investigation into former national security adviser Michael Flynn

According to the Daily Beast, Schieffer asked McCain what advice he would give to Trump. 

The senator told the former ?Face the Nation? host that he would tell the president ?the same thing that you advised Richard Nixon, which he didn?t do … get it all out … it?s not going to be over until every aspect of it is thoroughly examined and the American people make a judgment. And the longer you delay, the longer it?s going to last.?

McCain also called Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov ?an old KGB apparatchik stooge.?

Lavrov was in the Oval Office last week with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak when Trump reportedly shared ?highly classified information,? according to a Washington Post article Monday.

Drew Brees Talks Balancing Football With Raising 4 Kids

Drew Brees is one of the NFL?s good guys. Few players are more involved in the community, and few are more respected on and off the field. The 38-year-old quarterback of the New Orleans Saints is now working to raise awareness about the signs of exertional heat stroke, a significant cause of death in high school athletes, with ?The Heat Factor? campaign.

The onetime Super Bowl winner and MVP is a 10-time Pro Bowl selection who won the prestigious Walter Payton Man of the Year Award in 2006. Brees talked with HuffPost about exertional heat stroke, the challenges of being a dad in the NFL (he has four kids) and why he doesn?t play basketball.

There is often a misdiagnosis between concussions and exertional heat stroke. 

Well, I would just say the symptoms are similar. If you see somebody on the football field kind of stumbling around, you might initially think he?s concussed, took a shot to the head. Whereas it might be a case of EHS, and his body temperature is now at 104 or above and he?s extremely dehydrated and he?s starting to go into some type of organ issues that?s affecting his brain as well. That?s obviously a different situation that requires immediate attention. There?s protocols in place to try to get the body to cool down immediately before getting any type of organ damage or potentially death.

I think the concussion element is, short term you?re going to be OK, but long term there?s serious effects. If you don?t address a concussion right now and give it the proper rest ? really with the concussion just comes rest, allow it to heal. With EHS, it?s not we?re just going to rest and allow yourself to heal. It?s we got to cool the body down now or else we?re risking organ failure or death.

So I?d say there?s obviously a difference. While the symptoms might appear to look the same on the field, they?re obviously different protocols.

How do you pair being a dad with being an All-Pro quarterback? 

It is [hard], and I think it gets harder as the kids get older, because they?re involved in so many activities and you want to be at all of them. But I?d say my kids know that when I go to work, ?Dad?s got a great purpose for what he?s doing at work.?

How hard is it to physically leave the house and go to work?

So while at times it?s hard to leave the house because maybe my daughter is saying ?don?t leave? and stuff like that, I feel like I have a good system in place. My wife is so supportive and such a cornerstone with her communication, like ?Hey, daddy?s gotta go to work, or daddy?s working hard to support the family, or daddy?s gotta get ready to go play the big football game and we?re gonna go see him in the game this weekend.? They understand it.

She?ll bring them up to the facility sometimes, like if I know I?m going to have a late night, she?ll bring them up to the facility and maybe have dinner together and run around the indoor facility just for a little while. But for the most part, I structure my day around, ?OK, when are they going to be awake? When am I going to be with them?? I try to be there for them at night to read them a book before they go to bed on the busy days, so we have our moments.

What is the daily routine? 

I leave the house before everybody is up. I?m an early riser. In the offseason, I usually get up around 4, 4:30 ? that?s the offseason so I try to get work done before the kids get up around 6, 6:30. But during the season I usually get up around 5, head into the facility, and kind of start my day off by watching film, getting ready for the day, going to the weight room, get my body loose, go get breakfast, and we kinda start the day.

It?s meetings, about three hours. It?s all installation, game planning, looking at film of the opponent, then you go out on the field and you?re in practice for three hours, then it?s back to the weight room. You?ve got your media responsibilities, then it?s going to the training room ? let?s take care of the body ? and then go to the post-practice meetings where we watch practice and make corrections. Then it?s all right, let?s study the game plan. Make sure to head home at a certain time to know I?ll catch the kids before bed. It?s a full day.

What role then does sleep play for you?

Right at seven hours, seven-and-a-half hours, is kind of my sweet spot. Unfortunately, I probably get a lot less than that. When I?m in heavy training during the season, I really try to do that because the recovery is vital, it?s vital ? healing the body, healing the mind. But during the offseason, I probably don?t get as much rest as I should because I?ve got a lot going on.

Do you dabble in hoops at all?

I love basketball, but I don?t really play because of the injury risk. I dunk on people all the time though. [Laughs] No, no dunking on people.

Zac Efron Will Use His Washboard Abs To Play Serial Killer Ted Bundy

Zac Efron has been a good ?Neighbor? in the past, but you won?t want him living next door this time. The handsome abs magnate will play handsome murder magnate Ted Bundy in an upcoming movie.

?Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile? will incorporate the perspective of Bundy?s longtime girlfriend, Elizabeth Kloepfer, a role that hasn?t been cast yet. Kloepfer suspected Bundy was responsible for the murders of at least 30 women and ultimately turned him into the police. 

Joe Berlinger, best known for his ?Paradise Lost? documentary trilogy about the murder convictions of the West Memphis Three, will direct the movie. First-time screenwriter Michael Werwie, who also adapted the nonfiction serial killer book Lost Girls as an Amazon vehicle for Sarah Paulson, wrote the script, which was on the 2012 Black List. In a 2013 interview, Werwie said the movie will forego the violence of Bundy?s murders in favor of a psychological examination.

?The common thread among everyone who knew him was that he had this facade that led you to believe that there was no possible way for this to be true,? Werwie said. ?It was essentially a con-man story. It was a classic unreliable narrator. … And remember, the drama is not from his admission of guilt ? it?s from his admission of guilt to the person he loves most.?

Efron has gone dramatic before, namely in ?The Paperboy? and ?Parkland.? Still, this is a left turn for a guy who last year starred in ?Dirty Grandpa? and ?Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates? and will soon be seen in a big-screen ?Baywatch? reboot. But it also makes sense: Bundy was infamous for using his charisma to lure victims, and that?s basically what Efron did to America. This will be an interesting opportunity for the 29-year-old actor to break out of his bro-comedy bubble.

Producer Michael Costigan said the thriller will operate in the vein of ?Nightcrawler? and ?The Jinx,? according to Deadline. Production reportedly begins Oct. 9, though no target release date has been announced.

Lawmakers From Both Sides Of The Aisle Fume Over Trump Leak Allegations

Members of Congress from both sides of the aisle were upset by revelations that President Donald Trump may have revealed highly classified information during a meeting with the Russian ambassador last week.

On Monday, The Washington Post reported that Trump had disclosed ?code word? intel to Ambassador Sergey Kislyak, ?jeopardized a critical source of intelligence on the Islamic State? and harmed U.S. ties with an unnamed ally.

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) characterized the report as ?disturbing? and said, if true, such behavior would put ?at risk the lives of Americans and those who gather intelligence for our country.?

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) called the leak a ?very serious matter? during a CNN town hall on Monday. She tweeted that if Trump ?blew a classified source unwittingly, it is a problem. If it happened intentionally, the stakes are even higher.?

Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) said such a revelation ?breaks the trust of our allies and puts lives at risk.?

?If literally anyone else did what President Trump is reported to have done, there would be an immediate criminal investigation,? Booker stated.

Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.), the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, described Trump?s alleged behavior as a ?slap in the face to the intel community.?

Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) went one step further.

?I believe that the president is desperate for attention and needs psychological help,? she said in a statement provided to CBS Miami.

Other Democrats also chimed in: 

On the Republican side, Rep. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) said the White House has ?to do something to bring itself under control and in order.?

?Obviously, they?re in a downward spiral right now, and they?ve got to figure out a way to come to grips [with] all that?s happening,? Corker said.

House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) had a more subdued reaction. Through a spokesperson, his office said ?protecting our nation?s secrets is paramount,? then requested a ?full explanation of the facts.?

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) called the report ?disturbing,? but also noted to The Associated Press that the president ?does have the right to do that.?

Other GOP lawmakers expressed similar thoughts, reiterating concerns about the cozy relationship the Trump administration seems to have with Russia.
