Hillary Clinton doesn't get it

Since the explosion of #MeToo in October 2017, many of us have become jaded to the stock responses we can often expect from certain figures to stories of sexual harassment and abuse.

It is galling in another way, however, to hear #MeToo undermined from an unexpected quarter -- as it was a few days ago by Trump's 2016 opponent, Hillary Clinton.

Why LGBT supporters need to watch Kavanaugh

Brett Kavanaugh has replaced Anthony Kennedy on the US Supreme Court. For all the scrutiny of Justice Kavanaugh's personal life, his hearings told us little about where he will land on gay rights. Americans across the political spectrum have reason for concern -- especially pro-LGBT conservatives like ourselves who relied on Justice Kennedy as a champion of limited government. With the polarizing Kavanaugh confirmation now behind us, gay rights advocates need to prepare for the political reality of a rightward shift in the Supreme Court, because much more than marriage is at stake.

Owatonna middle school students do the 'Kirk Cousins dance'
Tue, 16, Oct 2018 9:30
Owatonna middle school students do the 'Kirk Cousins dance'

Welcome to the Tuesday edition of The Cooler, where sometimes you start a revolution without even knowing it. Let’s get to it: *The Vikings have made touchdown celebrations a thing, and quarterback Kirk Cousins … well, he displayed a very special brand of partying on Sunday after scoring in a 27-17 win over the Cardinals. You’ve surely seen by now what Cousins calls the Dead Arm Dance — borrowed from Adam Thielen, who brought it from his college days in Mankato, where local boys probably learned it from watching their fathers awkwardly try to dance at VFW wedding receptions through the years. Mock Cousins if you must, but know this: If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery than he has some big fans in Owatonna. Josh Storm, the head boys’ hockey coach at Owatonna High and a physical education teacher at the middle school, posted a video Monday of some of his weight training class students doing the Cousins Dance in tribute. I’m not sure if this will quite catch on like the Skol clap, but let’s take a look at the video: *Former Cowboys tight end Jason Witten has had a rough transition to the broadcast booth, and on Monday night he became a Twitter punchline when he declared that, in the midst of a comeback win over San Francisco, the Packers’ Aaron Rodgers pulled another rabbit out of his … head? Yes, that’s what he said. I fully expect this to become a novelty T-shirt within 48 hours, but in the mean time give Witten credit for this: Shortly after the game ended, he went on Twitter and owned the amusing gaffe with a tweet of his own. *Sometimes things get lost in translation when athletes talk. But I still keep circling back to this quote from Wild wing Zach Parise after Monday’s 4-2 loss at Nashville. “I know we didn’t win the game,” Parise said. “But at least we were involved.” It sounds worse than it is, of course, with Parise trying to express that despite the loss the Wild can take some positives out of the way it played — particularly in comparison to the first four games of the season when Minnesota was badly outshot. But it still doesn’t sound good, particularly for a team in Game 5 of a pivotal season for the direction of the franchise. It’s a message of hanging on, not moving forward. *Nobody cares, and nobody asked, but you all will bear witness to my fantasy football relief nonetheless. In the midst of Jimmy Butler Drama this week, I neglected to set my fantasy football lineup before Thursday’s game in both my leagues. Sometimes that’s not a problem; this week it was less than ideal given that the Eagles played Thursday and injured running Jay Ajayi was in both of my starting lineups. But I am pleased to report: My stupidity didn’t cost me. I eked out a win in one league and lost in another where a replacement running back wouldn’t have helped change the outcome. I have learned zero lessons about actions and consequences, but I feel better. *This tweet from ESPN’s Darren Rovell about the vision of the late Paul Allen — Microsoft co-founder and owner of the NBA’s Blazers and NFL’s Seahawks — is worth examining.

Paul Allen dies aged 65: Tributes to Microsoft co-founder who 'changed the world'

Paul Allen dies aged 65: Tributes to Microsoft co-founder who 'changed the world'Paul Allen, who founded Microsoft alongside Bill Gates in 1975, has died at the age of 65.  Mr Allen, who suffered from non-Hodgkin lymphoma, was also a prominent philanthropist, donating billions to science, conservation and the arts.  Eight years after starting the company he received his first cancer diagnosis, but it was treated successfully, though it forced him to retire early from his role at Microsoft. He developed non-Hodgkin lymphoma in 2009, which had been in remission until it returned earlier this year.  In a statement released at the start of this month, Mr Allen said he planned to fight the disease "aggressively".  “A lot has happened in medicine since I overcame this disease in 2009. My doctors are optimistic that I will see good results from the latest therapies, as am I," he said.  Bill Gates, left, and Paul Allen chat during a basketball game in Seattle Credit: AP On Monday his sister Jody Allen called him a "remarkable individual on every level".  "While most knew Paul Allen as a technologist and philanthropist, for us he was a much loved brother and uncle, and an exceptional friend.   "For all the demands on his schedule, there was always time for family and friends.  "At this time of loss and grief for us - and so many others - we are profoundly grateful for the care and concern he demonstrated every day," she said.  Mr Gates led the tributes from the tech world, remembering Mr Allen as "one of my oldest and dearest friends." "Personal computing would not have existed without him," Mr Gates added. "He was fond of saying, 'If it has the potential to do good, then we should do it.' That's the kind of person he was." Very sad to hear of Paul Allen’s passing. His passion for invention and pushing forward inspired so many. He was relentless to the end. My heart goes out to Paul’s family and friends.— Jeff Bezos (@JeffBezos) October 15, 2018 Current Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella said his contributions to technology had been "indispensable". "As co-founder of Microsoft, in his own quiet and persistent way, he created magical products, experiences and institutions, and in doing so, he changed the world," he said.  Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, said the tech industry had "lost a pioneer and our world has lost a force for good". Mr Allen never married and had no children, and was sometimes described as reclusive.  His early exit from Microsoft meant he dedicated much of his life to scientific and technological research, including the foundation of the Allen Institute, which began by focusing on neuroscience but has widened its approach to cover bioscience, and a more recent project to build a reusable space plane, designed to launch satellites.  So sad to hear about the passing of Paul Allen. Among many other things he was a pioneer of commercial space travel. We shared a belief that by exploring space in new ways we can improve life on Earth. All our thoughts are with his loved ones.— Richard Branson (@richardbranson) October 15, 2018 He also owned American football team the Seattle Seahawks and basketball team the Portland Trailblazers.  In a joint statement the organisations paid tribute to Mr Allen.  On their behalf Bill Hilf, CEO of Vulcan, which oversaw his businesses, said: "All of us who had the honour of working with Paul feel inexpressible loss today.  Sad to hear of the passing of Paul Allen, who was a strong advocate for environmental protection. He and the team at Vulcan played a pivotal role in developing the Shark Conservation Fund alongside LDF. His legacy lives on via his incredible work as a philanthropist and investor.— Leonardo DiCaprio (@LeoDiCaprio) October 16, 2018 "He possessed a remarkable intellect and a passion to solve some of the world’s most difficult problems, with the conviction that creative thinking and new approaches could make profound and lasting impact. "Millions of people were touched by his generosity, his persistence in pursuit of a better world, and his drive to accomplish as much as he could with the time and resources at his disposal."

With barely three weeks before the midterm elections on November 6, officials and aides are trading in recriminations and finger-pointing, as they appear to be faced by a “blue wave”. At the same time, the White House is reaching out to Democrats on Capitol Hill, in preparation for having to deal with them after the autumn ballot.
