Mister Monkey
by Francine Prose
Hardcover, 285 pages

Is Francine Prose just monkeying around? Is she taking a comic break after the much weightier exploration of creeping xenophobia, anti-Semitism, and right-wing proto-fascism in her last novel, Lovers at the Chameleon Club, Paris 1932?

Mister Monkey, her 22nd book of fiction, is a dark comedy about the mainly sad, disappointing lives of everyone involved in a woeful way-off-Broadway revival of a painfully bad musical based on a made-up classic children's book called Mister Monkey — itself an unlikely success — written by a Vietnam veteran.

Sartre on the Nobel Prize
Jean-Paul Sartre, translated by Richard Howard

Jean-Paul Sartre; drawing by David Levine

Jean-Paul Sartre explained his refusal to accept the Nobel Prize for Literature in a statement made to the Swedish Press on October 22, which appeared in Le Monde in a French translation approved by Sartre. The following translation into English was made by Richard Howard.

I deeply regret the fact that the incident has become something of a scandal: a prize was awarded, and I refused it. It happened entirely because I was not informed soon enough of what was under way. When I read in the October 15 Figaro littéraire, in the Swedish correspondent’s column, that the choice of the Swedish Academy was tending toward me, but that it had not yet been determined, I supposed that by writing a letter to the Academy, which I sent off the following day, I could make matters clear and that there would be no further discussion.

I was not aware at the time that the Nobel Prize is awarded without consulting the opinion of the recipient, and I believed there was time to prevent this from happening. But I now understand that when the Swedish Academy has made a decision it cannot subsequently revoke it.

My reasons for refusing the prize concern neither the Swedish Academy nor the Nobel Prize in itself, as I explained in my letter to the Academy. In it, I alluded to two kinds of reasons: personal and objective.

Why the Nobel Committee repeatedly dissed this "world-bluffing Jewish physicist"
By Virginia Hughes|Thursday, September 28, 2006

When Albert Einstein listed the most important honors of his life, he began with the German Physical Society's Max Planck Medal, named for a physicist he revered. He went on from there to list the prizes and honorary doctorate degrees awarded him in many nations. Conspicuously absent was the plaudit with the highest profile and payout: the Nobel Prize. But in context this omission isn't so surprising. The Nobel nod—17 years after Einstein published his special theory of relativity—came long after recognition by the physics world and even the general public. Even more bizarre, the prize was awarded to Einstein not for his relativity revolution, but for the comparatively obscure discovery of the photoelectric effect. Why? After years of sifting through letters and diaries of the Scandinavian archives, science historian Robert Marc Friedman says it was an intentional snub fueled by the biases of the day—a prejudice against pacifists, Jews, and, most of all, theoretical physics.

In 1905, while working as a patent clerk in Switzerland, 26-year-old Albert Einstein published five seminal papers on the nature of space, light, and motion. One paper introduced the special theory of relativity, which dramatically broke with Newton's universally accepted description of how physics worked. Special relativity did away with the notion of absolute space and time—Einstein said they were instead "relative" to the observer's conditions—effectively flipping the Newtonian model on its apple-bruised head. In 1915, Einstein expanded the theory by incorporating gravity: it was not just a force of attraction between bodies, he said, but the result of distortions in space itself. This new, more robust version was called the theory of general relativity.


DUNGAN og kamatay ang duha ka magsuon dihang nagpinatyanay niaging adlaw didto sa Barangay Eureka, dakbayan sa Gingoog, Misamis Oriental.

Giila ang magsuon nga sila si Mansueto ug Rey Pabular, pulos hingkod ang edad ug mga residente sa maong dapit.

Sa imbestigasyon sa Gingoog City Police Station sa pagpangulo ni Police Chief Inspector Esperidion Biado II, nasuta nga daan na nagbikil ang magsuon gumikan kay gikaulit ni Rey ang giingong pagsuway og luba ni Mansueto sa ilang amahan kaniadto.

Giingong taod-taod na kining gidumtan sa igsuon hinungdan dihang lango sila sa ilimnong makahubog niadtong tungora mikuha og improvised shotgun si Rey ug gipusil si Mansueto apan wala kini deretso mapuruhi ug nakakuha pa kini og kutsilyo ug giluba si Rey makapila ka higayon hinungdan sab sa kamatayon niini.

Ang patay’ng lawas sa magsuon gihaya sa puloy-anan sa mga biktima diin ang mga kabanay niini wala na mihatag og reaksyon.

CEBU, Philippines - Ang Provincial Health Office (PHO) gipangayoan og report ni Bokal Christopher Baricuatro, chairman sa Committee on Health sa hunta probinsiyal kabahin sa problema na usab sa langaw sa lungsod sa Asturias.

Sa Facebook account ni Princess France, iyang gi-post nga sa ilang lugar sa Brgy. Buswang Bago sa lungsod sa Asturias ug mga silingan nga barangay, nagkinahanglan og dinaliang atensiyon tungod sa kadaghan sa langaw sa ilang dapit. Ang poultry sa lugar maoy ilang gibasol nga hinungdan sa pagdagsa sa mga langaw.

Kagahapon nangayo siya og report sa PHO kabahin niini alang sa himoon nila nga aksyon. Posibleng ang mga opisyal sa lungsod ug ang mga poultry operator ipatawag sa hunta probinsiyal aron manubag sa mga reklamo sa mga residente.

Si Dr. Niño Ismael Pastor, hepe sa public health sa PHO niingon nga nagpadala na sila og tawo nga niimbestigar. Gibutyag niya nga ang poultry owners nanghatag og iti sa mga mag-uuma aron iabuno sa ilang mga tanom. Apan wala na maato ang gidaghanon sa iti ug nabasa sa uwan hinungdan nga gidugok og mga langaw. Giingong adunay grupo nga nipirma og waiver nga dili sila moduso og reklamo batok sa poultry kay nakabenepisyo sila niini. Matud ni Ismael nga nihimo na og mga intervention ang tag-iya sa poultry samtang ang lokal nga kagamhanan sa Asturias dili makahimo og lakang kay ang reklamo igo lang gi-post sa social media o walay  nipadangat og pormal nga reklamo.

‘They’re Lies’: Melania Trump Rejects Women’s Claims That Husband Groped Them

Melania Trump, who has been all but invisible as her husband confronts a campaign crisis over allegations that he sexually assaulted women, emerged on Monday to forcefully defend him and question the honesty of the women making the accusations.

Ms. Trump, in an extensive interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, said the women who had accused Donald J. Trump of groping and kissing them were lying, and likened her husband to a teenage boy who engages in macho boasting.

She echoed her husband’s complaint that he was the victim of a broad conspiracy between the news media and the Clinton campaign.

“I believe my husband, I believe my husband — it was all organized from the opposition,” Ms. Trump said. “They can never check the background of these women. They don’t have any facts.”

Her appearance comes as Mr. Trump and his aides grapple with the worst stretch of the campaign so far, after the airing 10 days ago of an “Access Hollywood” recording from 2005 that captured Mr. Trump bragging to the host Billy Bush that he kisses women without invitation and that he can grab women’s genitals because he is a “star.”

Ms. Trump, 46, called the exchange between Mr. Trump and Mr. Bush “boy talk,” and said Mr. Trump had been “egged on” by the host “to say dirty and bad stuff.”

But she stressed that she believed that Mr. Trump was simply being boastful and did not engage in the behavior he described.

Mosul offensive: Territory recaptured from ISIS
By Nick Paton Walsh and Euan McKirdy, CNN
Updated 0707 GMT (1507 HKT) October 18, 2016

Near Mosul, Iraq (CNN)A suicide car bomb, sowing panic as it plows relentlessly toward Peshmerga positions. An ISIS fighter who ambushes Kurdish troops from a concealed tunnel before blowing himself up.

These were the visceral indications of how dedicated and single-minded Mosul's ISIS occupiers can be, and equally how bloody and grinding Iraq's battle to take back the city could be.

As dawn broke Tuesday, the second day of the offensive to liberate Iraq's second largest city from ISIS, a diverse coalition of Iraqi troops, Kurdish Peshmerga allies and thousands of Iraqi irregulars gritted their teeth and prepared to again meet militant forces in the dusty scrubland outside the city.

One Iraqi soldier was killed and another two injured while repelling car suicide bombs targeting troops around 30 miles south of the city, according to Maj. Amin Shekhani of the Iraqi army. He added that 10 ISIS fighters were killed in the operation.

Pentagon spokesman Peter Cook said Monday that Iraqi forces have "met their objectives" so far and are "ahead of schedule," but added that the offensive "will be a difficult campaign that could take some time."

Since attacking at first light Monday, Iraqi forces had made "substantial progress along several avenues of advance," in the "largest battle (Iraqi forces) have taken on to date," US Central Command spokesman Col. John Dorrian told CNN's Christiane Amanpour.

"The noose is tightening on Mosul."

More than 75 square miles of territory and as many as nine villages had been taken from ISIS control.

Salabtunon kaayo ang bakanteng langit
Ang dagway sinaw kon hapuhapon
Wa ganiy mga butlog moungot sa mga kamot
Huping pa sa hangin nga nasangit sa ilong ko
Sa akong panghupaw ikaw nakasabot niini:
Di ko motuo sa kahimtang nga kanunay
Magpasilong ta sa landong sa kahangturan.
Kay mangluod man sab ang limpiyong panganod
Ning atong pagsunod-sunod sa mga adlaw
Mokalit lag paghot ang mga dugdog
Ibabaw sa atong agtang diin kita mauknol sa lanog
Mowiriswiris dayon ang mga tudlo sa kilat
Apan di ka malisang kay ako na ning gigunitan
Imong gipaabot na lang ang pag-ulbo sa langit
Ang pagpanulong sa nanagong mga ulan
Kay mikitoy-kitoy kang mihiram sa akong kaisog.

Ang mga deboto gilangkoban sa mga kababayen-an, kabataan ug mga senior citizens  aron sa pagyukbo.

CEBU, Philippines - Misamot kadaghan ang mga deboto sa Birhen sa Lindogon nga niyukbo kagahapon atol sa pagdala sa imahen diha sa Basilica Minore del Sto. Niño de Cebu gikan sa International Eucharistic Congress Pavilion sa Brgy. Mabolo ning Dakbayan.

Usa ka healing mass ang gihimo kagahapon sa hapon nga gipangulohan mismo sa Singing Priest nga si Fr. Jonas Mejares. Ang mga deboto gilangkoban sa mga kababayen-an, kabataan ug mga senior citizens  aron sa pagyukbo.

I mean, he’s so blatantly stupid. He’s a punk. He’s a dog. He’s a pig. he’s a con, a bulls—t artist, a mutt who doesn’t know what he’s talking about, doesn’t do his homework, doesn’t care, thinks he’s gaming society, doesn’t pay his taxes. He’s an idiot.

Colin Powell said it best: He’s a national disaster. He’s an embarrassment to this country. It makes me so angry that this country had gotten to the point that this fool, this bozo, has wound up where he has.

He talks [about] how he wants to punch people in the face? Well, I’d like to punch him in the face. This is somebody that we want for president? I don’t think so. What I care about is the direction of this country. And what I’m very, very worried about is that it might go in the wrong direction with someone like Donald Trump.

If you care about your future, vote for it.

We kept telling each other — almost convincing ourselves — that it was subtle. Sure, there was bias against women, but it was “unconscious” bias, and awareness would make it go away. Yes, studies showed a glass ceiling, but that was because of the signals we were sending, and if we just dressed differently, or stood differently, or spoke differently at meetings, we could “lean” it all away.

Most of all, we told ourselves, it was a different world now — what with the first woman well on her way to being president.

What irony (predictable, perhaps, but ironic nonetheless) that the single greatest achievement of a woman in American history serves to show how far women haven’t come.

WALAY kabutangan sa kalagot sa usa ka 50-anyos nga ginang human gipasinglan nga "wakwak" ang iyang inahan ug banggiitang manghiloay ang iyang amahan.

Alas 10 sa buntag niadtong Martes nagpa-blotter sa Talomo Police Station ang usa ka Coring (bansagon gitago), 50, minyo, nagpuyo sa Lower Dampa, Barangay Magtuod, Talomo District, dakbayan sa Davao.

Gisaysay ni Coring sa police officer sa presinto tres nga duha sa iyang mga kaila nga sila Gemma, 45, ug Merna, 49, (mga bansagon gitago), taga Barangay 5-A Bankerohan, nagtabi sa ilang mga silingan sa Lower Dampa nga wakwak ang iyang inahan ug banggiitang manghiloay ang iyang amahan.

Una niini, giingong dihang nagabhian sila Gemma ug Merna nga gikan sa ilang higala sa Lower Dampa, nakakita sila og dako nga langgam gikan sa pantawan nila Coring.

Giingong nanagan sila Gemma ug Merna kay nanindog ang ilang balahibo dihang ilang nadunggan ang pagsiyagit sa dakong langgam kay nasangit sa kawayanan.

Dugang pagsaysay ni Coring nga nanabi pa sila Gemma ug Merna nga banggiitang manghiloay ang iyang amahan gumikan gipanakitan og tiyan ang ilang silingan nga nakigtagay og tuba.

Sa kasuko ni Coring sa bakak nga pasangil, nagpa-blotter nalang siya sa kapulisan aron sa barangay sila maghusay batok sa duha niya ka mga higala.
