president donald trump’s administration on sunday continued its assault on press freedom and attacks on the media, with chief of staff reince priebus reiterating trump’s desire to make it easier to sue media outlets who publish stories unfavorable to the president.“i think it’s something we have looked at, and how that gets executed or whether that goes anywhere is a different story,” priebus told abc’s jonathan karl. “but when you have articles out there that have no basis or fact, and we’re sitting here on 24/7 cable companies, writing stories about constant contacts with russia, and all these other matters.”in his attacks against the media throughout his presidential campaign, trump repeatedly claimed that he would “open up our libel laws” in order to “have peop...

that the war in the middle east has gone on for a depressingly long time becomes evident upon viewing christian tureud and david salzberg’s third entry in their military-themed documentary trilogy. revolving around intrepid war reporter alex quade and her involvement with the family of a soldier killed in iraq, danger close provides a vivid portrait of combat and its emotional and physical aftermath. but despite its harrowing footage and moving elements, the film may feel all too familiar to viewers who have become numb in the face of seemingly countless other similar efforts.in the film, quade, an award-winning freelance journalist who has accompanied military units on numerous missions, is shown embedded with u.s. special forces soldiers on a 2007 mission in afghanistan. the excursion ...

can a violent man change? can he stop the assaults on those he is supposed to cherish, and reduce his psychological games?   yes - to some extent - according to optimistic new research that looks at the effectiveness of men's behaviour change programs in australia. men's behaviour change programs have become a popular option for magistrates looking for a penalty for violent men for whom incarceration is not appropriate.  these programs have become the go-to option for magistrates scrambling to find a penalty for men who use family violence where incarceration is not appropriate. once a week (usually for 24 weeks) men attend a group session that encourages them to change their behaviour and their attitudes toward gender stereotypes and build respectful relationships. but there has b...

eons ago — yes, way back before jan. 20 — i urged the american press to “scrutinize, not normalize” the actions of the new administration. given the unusual background of president trump, and his campaign pledges to tear down government as we know it, that seemed a necessity.now, as the president’s first 100 days are being evaluated, it’s fair to ask: what about the news media’s first 100 days?granted, it’s a ridiculous question in some ways, because “the media” is hard to define or generalize about. (are we talking about buzzfeed or breitbart news? the new york times or fox news or the arizona republic?)but because the answer matters, i’ll take a shot at it here, with the help of some expert media observers. we considered the mainstream media: the cable and broadcast...

the greatest break in snooker history is ronnie o'sullivan's legendary 147 at the 1997 world championship. he not only sank every ball with unmatched grace and force, but did so in a record-breaking 5:20s, some two minutes faster than the previous record. but deadspin's ben tippett proves it was executed even faster than the books show.the famous 147 break had everything: the white ball obeyed o’sullivan’s every command, every shot looked easy because he made it so through his honeyed cueing and juno-level precision positional play, the break was fast—the fastest maximum break ever, by a long way—and yet he looked like he had oodles of time. o’sullivan said at the time that he knew a maximum was on after the second red, and the result never looked in doubt. o’sullivan moved aro...
