Kavanaugh confirmation preview: Tough questions face judge

President Trump's second Supreme Court pick to face grilling from Senate.

The confirmation process for President’s Trump’s nominee to be the next justice on the Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh, has been anything but normal.

At least that’s according to Sen. Amy Klobuchar.

Two days before Kavanaugh’s Senate confirmation hearing is slated to begin, the Minnesota Democrat said the fact that 100,000 pages of records -- from his time on former President George W. Bush's staff -- have yet to be released is not normal.

“You have a nominee with excellent credentials, with his family behind him. You have the cameras there. You have the senators questioning,” Klobuchar argued on NBC News' “Meet the Press.” “But this isn’t normal.”

“It’s not normal, because we are not able to see 100,000 documents that the archivist has just — because the administration has said we can’t see them,” Klobuchar added. “They’ve exerted their executive power — 148,000 documents that I’ve seen, that you cannot see, because they won’t allow us to make them public. So I can’t even tell you about them right now on this show.”

The former president's attorney Bill Burck told the Senate Judiciary Committee in a letter this past Friday that the White House and Justice Department, conducting their own reviews of the presidential records, “have identified certain documents of the type traditionally protected by constitutional privilege.”

According to the letter, most of those documents withheld are about “deliberations and candid advice concerning the selection and nomination of judicial candidates, the confidentiality of which is critical to any president’s ability to carry out this core executive function.” The rest include documents that include advice to Bush, communications among staffers about communications with Bush, and discussion of executive orders or legislation he was considering.

While 287,000-plus pages of documents have been made public from his time in the Bush administration, Democrats have used the withheld 100,000 to argue that the GOP has been impeding on transparency and preventing them from making a fair assessment of Kavanaugh’s record. Many Democratic lawmakers have called for Kavanaugh’s hearing to be postponed and rescheduled until after November’s midterm elections.

“I think that you could ask some very interesting questions about these documents that I’m unable to even say because I’m not able to make them public — and I don’t know what the result would be of a hearing,” Klobuchar said when questioned about whether the documents could prove the judge is unqualified to serve on the Supreme Court.

Ahead of Tuesday’s hearing, senators from both parties also are prepping for the four-day marathon — including Wednesday's multi-hour question-and-answer exchange — in which Kavanaugh's views on the biggest legal issues of the day are expected to be mined for the conservative judge's approach to the law.

Abortion, executive power, campaign finance reform, regulatory oversight and gun violence are among the many topics that could trigger fireworks.

President Donald Trump's pick for the court, a 53-year-old appellate court judge, has long been readying for this moment. A White House operation is focused primarily on defending Kavanaugh and amplifying his answers, with Senate Republicans set to take the lead in going after Democrats on the committee.

The White House has assembled a team of attorneys from the counsel's office, Kavanaugh's roster of former clerks, and other Republican lawyers to document his record and meticulously prepare him for the questions they expect him to face. For every line of questioning, the lawyers and communications aides have prepared suggested responses for Kavanaugh to deploy and amplifying material to release to the public.

The operation is standard for any confirmation process, but given the polarized political environment the White House is preparing for an intense battle.

Fox News' Adam Shaw and The Associated Press contributed to this report.

The Family raises $17.4 million to support European startupshttps://moonpixlar.pw/the-family-raises-17-4-million-to-support-european-startups/ Tue, 25 Sep 2018 17:36:36 +0000 https://moonpixlar.pw/?p=5003

The Family has always been an ambitious startup accelerator. But it has always felt like the company never had enough money to grow as quickly as it wanted. The Family is raising a new $17.4 million funding round (€15 million).

Private banking and asset management group LGT Capital Partners is leading the round, with HummingBird Venture, Project A, eVentures and others also participating.

“It’s the first time an investor understands The Family’s business model. It’s the first time an investor isn’t trying to turn us into a VC fund,” The Family co-founder Oussama Ammar told me.

According to him, The Family is basically going to do more of the same. Except that this funding round “makes [The Family] virtually immortal.” The Family had to double-check its bank account many, many times to make sure that there was enough money to pay all its employees. This funding round should let the company catch its breath.

The Family has fine-tuned its fellowship program over the years. Here’s how it works today. Every quarter, around 20 startups join The Family. They will attend onboarding sessions in Paris, Berlin and London.

In Paris, The Family’s team is focused on product and engineering. In London, The Family can help you raise money. And in Berlin, The Family’s team is all about operations and execution.

After the onboarding stuff, companies can still seek for advice and connections. There’s no demo day and end of batch. The Family plans to support startups when it comes to funding, product, hiring and more.

Being part of The Family is not free of course. Startups need to be willing to give away 5 percent of their equity in exchange of this support system. This isn’t for everyone and many entrepreneurs are already surrounded by a supportive ecosystem. So if you don’t think you’re getting enough value, you can ask for your shares back within a year.

I’ve covered some of The Family’s startups over the years, such as Agricool, Algolia, Clustree, Comet, Doctrine, Fretlink, Heetch, Nestor, Payfit, Side, Stanley Robotics, Trusk and more.

With today’s funding round, The Family plans to invest in every funding round after a startup joins the fellowship. As a startup, if you can find a lead investor, The Family will automatically join the round with the same valuation and conditions.

But the fellowship is just one side of the story. “Our goal with the fellowship is that we never exit because we want to maximize the returns on investment,” Ammar said.

In order to support a staff of 60 people around 3 countries, The Family had to find a way to make money before those long-term exits. That’s why the company has launched other products.

For instance, Pathfinder helps big companies become digital companies, Lion educates startup employees and Kymono sells startup sweatshirts. The Family has spun off all those products into their own companies. They all have a dedicated CEO and team, but The Family retains at least 60 percent of the shares.

And The Family wants to create more side businesses like those. It seems like The Family is leveraging this model to finance all the fellowship activities.

Eventually, The Family’s dream is to be able to follow portfolio companies at every step of the way. It’s clear that you don’t need as much external support if you’re a Series C company. But The Family wants to become an infrastructure company that lets you build European tech giants.

After a lung disease reduced him to nothing, he decided to become a weightlifter.https://moonpixlar.pw/after-a-lung-disease-reduced-him-to-nothing-he-decided-to-become-a-weightlifter/ Tue, 25 Sep 2018 13:17:38 +0000 https://moonpixlar.pw/?p=4999 Bob Donnelly

Jaed Wells of Utica, New York, always wanted to be a professional bodybuilder, but cystic fibrosis held him back from his dream.

Cystic fibrosis (CF) causes a thick buildup of mucus in the lungs, pancreas and other organs. The infections and lung damage caused by disease reduce a person’s life expectancy to just 40 years.

About five years ago, at the age of 16, Jared’s health began to fail.

“For some reason, when I was doing my medications nothing was healing right. I just kept getting sicker and sicker,” he told WKTV.

“I got really close a couple of times that I was not even sure I was going to bounce back and after that it seemed really tough to get out of it but eventually I made my way though and I'm here now," he added.

At 21, his health began to improve and he was released from the hospital. But the years of battling CF had taken a toll on his body. Jared was was frail and had little muscle tone.

Hoping to get back into shape, last March, he began working out the Body Alive gym in Utica with his best friend, Vinny Donnelly.

Vinny’s father, Bob Donnelly, is the owner of the gym.  

He warned the community of bodybuilders not to make any “wise cracks” about Jared’s slight frame.

This is my son's friend Jarod.
Before I hear any wise cracks. Jared has been fighting lung cancer and we almost lost...

Posted by Body Alive on Saturday, March 17, 2018

A few days after Jared started hitting the gym, Bob Donnelly posted an inspiring photo of Jared working his eight-inch biceps on Facebook.

The inspiring photo of Wells fighting back after years of struggle quickly went viral, earning over 19,000 shares.

“We expected it to get the maybe 200 likes that the page usually gets, then all of a sudden it was getting thousands," Wells told NBC News. “It’s kind of exciting, and it's all been really positive.”

Bob Donnelly kept the Body Alive community updated with posts of Jared’s progress.

Jared’s unwavering desire to get fit in spite of living with a terminal disease was an inspiration to many. The support he received from the Body Alive community and social media allowed him to push himself even further.

Vinny Donnelly started a GoFundme page to help with Jared’s medical bills and supplements.

“Jared has been a close family friend for years,” Vinny wrote. “He's strong willed and has been fighting since I've known him. I don't want him to fight alone.  We are going to keep hitting the gym and stay positive.”

By July, Jared gained 35 pounds and was eating 6,000 calories a day.

Here's the most recent photo of Jared from August 22,  just four months after embarking on his journey.

Jared’s story is inspiring on many levels.

Not only did he fight his way back from the brink of death to build a healthy body, but he did so without giving a thought what others in the gym might say. He walked into an intimidating gym filled with muscle-bound weightlifters and pushed his 121-pound body to the absolute limit.

Woody Allens Wife Defends Him Against Molestation Allegations & Claims Mia Farrow Abused Her! – Perez Hiltonhttps://moonpixlar.pw/woody-allens-wife-defends-him-against-molestation-allegations-claims-mia-farrow-abused-her-perez-hilton/ Tue, 25 Sep 2018 08:57:50 +0000 https://moonpixlar.pw/?p=4996

Woody Allen’s wife Soon-Yi Previn has allegations of her own, and she’s saved them for this very occasion.

The 47-year-old defended her husband against those rejuvenated abuse allegations in an interview with New York Magazine on Sunday, and she’s claiming she was abused as well — by Allen’s ex-wife/her adoptive mother, Mia Farrow.

Related: Woody Thinks He’s The Unsung Hero Of #MeToo

She told the publication about Farrow, who adopted her from Korea when she was six:

“I was never interested in writing a Mommie Dearest, getting even with Mia — none of that.”

But here we are, nearly a year after Allen’s adoptive daughter Dylan Farrow reminded the media about the molestation allegations she made against the filmmaker decades ago, prompting stars and studios alike to distance themselves from him.

The way Previn sees it, her estranged mother is manipulating the #MeToo movement to get revenge on the Annie Hall director for his relationship with Previn. She claimed the Hannah and Her Sisters actress “paraded Dylan as a victim,” adding:

“And a whole new generation is hearing about [the allegations of abuse] when they shouldn’t… What’s happened to Woody is so upsetting, so unjust.”

Previn was 10 when Allen started dating her mother. She claims she was kicked out of the house at 21 years old after Farrow found nude photos of her that Allen had taken.

Related: Asia Argento Accuser Accused Of Sexual Misconduct

As for her own relationship with Farrow, Previn claims her mother “wasn’t maternal to me from the get-go,” and that she and her adopted siblings were treated like “domestics” and ordered to look after the younger children, clean and purchase groceries.

Previn also claimed the actress abused her over the years, calling her “stupid” and “moronic” and even once threw a porcelain rabbit at her. She added:

“I really can’t come up with a pleasant memory.”

For what it’s worth, NY Mag states that a family spokesperson denied Previn’s memories of physical abuse, neglect or showing favoritism to one child over another.

Dylan responded to the New York Magazine story on Sunday night, re-stating her molestation claims and blasting the author of the article for writing a “one-sided piece attacking the credibility of his victim.”

She tweeted:

Dylan’s brother Ronan Farrow also condemned NY Mag for the “hit job” against his mother, riding the publication for refusing to “include eyewitness testimony that would contradict falsehoods in this piece.” He shared:

Speaking of Ronan, Woody also spoke up in Previn’s interview, saying he’s not 100% sure the journalist is his son. He shared:

“In my opinion, he’s my child. I think he is, but I wouldn’t bet my life on it. I paid child support for him for his whole childhood, and I don’t think that’s very fair if he’s not mine.”

Expect to hear more about Woody following this piece!

Embarrassed Son Asks Dad Not To Wave At Him In Front Of School Bus, Regrets Doing It For Next 170 School Dayshttps://moonpixlar.pw/embarrassed-son-asks-dad-not-to-wave-at-him-in-front-of-school-bus-regrets-doing-it-for-next-170-school-days/ Tue, 25 Sep 2018 04:27:48 +0000 https://moonpixlar.pw/?p=4992

Parents, they are here to clothe us, feed us and without fail, embarrass us. Sixteen is a particularly ripe age for parental embarrassment and poor Rain Price of American Fork, Utah was no exception. It was the beginning of his sophomore school year and his first time riding the bus so in true embarrassing parent-style his dad Dale waved him off. Mortified, he begged his mom Rochelle to stop Dale from doing it again -  guess who overheard?

To Rain's dismay and Dale's delight, not only did the father decide to wave his son goodbye, he decided to send him off dressed in costume. But wait, this was not just a one-time incident, Dale dressed up every single day for 170 straight school days.

"When he did it the first day I was in shock. You don’t want to see your dad dressing up in a wedding dress, waving at you on the bus," Rain told the Metro, to which his dad responded: "I hope this lives with him for the rest of his life."

Dale became known as the 'Wave At The Bus Dad,' coming out in the most hilarious and elaborate costumes and never repeating the same look. He said he only spend around $50 the whole year and relied on friends and neighbors to loan him costume essentials. So the family could share the ridiculousness with the rest of the world, Rochelle created a blog to document all the outfits.

Rain is now all grown up at 19 and serves as a church missionary in Liberia, West Africa.

From the Little Mermaid to a blushing bride, scroll down below to some of Dale's iconic fashion moments!

Original Post Here: Embarrassed Son Asks Dad Not To Wave At Him In Front Of School Bus, Regrets Doing It For Next 170 School Days

Parents, they are here to clothe us, feed us and without fail, embarrass us. Sixteen is a particularly ripe age for parental embarrassment and poor Rain Price of American Fork, Utah was no exception. It was the beginning of his sophomore school year and his first time riding the bus so in true embarrassing parent-style his dad Dale waved him off. Mortified, he begged his mom Rochelle to stop Dale from doing it again -  guess who overheard?

To Rain's dismay and Dale's delight, not only did the father decide to wave his son goodbye, he decided to send him off dressed in costume. But wait, this was not just a one-time incident, Dale dressed up every single day for 170 straight school days.

"When he did it the first day I was in shock. You don’t want to see your dad dressing up in a wedding dress, waving at you on the bus," Rain told the Metro, to which his dad responded: "I hope this lives with him for the rest of his life."

Dale became known as the 'Wave At The Bus Dad,' coming out in the most hilarious and elaborate costumes and never repeating the same look. He said he only spend around $50 the whole year and relied on friends and neighbors to loan him costume essentials. So the family could share the ridiculousness with the rest of the world, Rochelle created a blog to document all the outfits.

Rain is now all grown up at 19 and serves as a church missionary in Liberia, West Africa.

From the Little Mermaid to a blushing bride, scroll down below to some of Dale's iconic fashion moments!
