Parkway Sign Lettering Altered to Read ‘Crooked Hillary’

(BRENTWOOD, N.Y.) — A sign marking the Crooked Hill Road exit off a suburban New York parkway has been altered to read “Crooked Hillary.” Newsday reports the defaced green traffic sign on the Sagtikos Parkway on Long Island was reported to the state Department of Transportation on Wednesday. A sign marking the Crooked Hill Road exit on the Sagtikos Parkway was defaced to “Crooked Hillary,” officials said https://t.co/7KBwLtEuWt pic.twitter.com/JwX2lEIRKq — Newsday (@Newsday) June 15, 2017 A DOT spokesman says the sign has been removed and “defacing public signs is illegal.” Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump often used the moniker “Crooked Hillary” when referring to Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton, who at the time suffered from the mistrust of many voters. Trump won the election and in a recent tweet said “Crooked Hillary Clinton now blames everybody but herself, refuses to say she was a terrible candidate.” Clinton tweeted back “People in covfefe houses shouldn’t throw covfefe,” a dig at Trump for tweeting the mystifying nonword.

Landmarks and City Halls Across the Globe Go Green in a Show of Support for the Paris Climate Accord

Municipal governments around the world are bathing their city halls and landmarks with green light to show their support for the Paris Agreement on climate action, after President Donald Trump announced Thursday that the U.S. would withdraw from the accord. In France, the 2015 climate accord’s namesake lit up its city hall in a vibrant hue, fresh on the heels of Trump’s announcement. “Regardless of Trump’s decision, cities will apply [the] Paris Agreement,” tweeted Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo, in both French and English.

Trump Expresses ‘Boundless’ Gratitude to Fallen Troops

President Trump on Memorial Day spoke at Arlington National Cemetery to express America’s “boundless and undying” gratitude to those who have fallen in battle. Trump described the stories of two soldiers who died in Afghanistan: Christopher D. Horton, of the Oklahoma National Guard and Green Beret Capt. Andrew D. Byers, of Colorado Springs. Trump honored the fallen men and their families, saying “they paid the ultimate price for freedom.” He added, “Words cannot measure the depth of their devotion, the purity of their love or the totality of their courage.” Read more at The Daily Beast.

Trump Adviser Gary Cohn: Coal Doesn’t ‘Make That Much Sense Anymore’

Top White House economic adviser contradicted President Donald Trump’s message on coal, telling reporters aboard Air Force One that “coal doesn’t even make that much sense anymore as a feedstock.” Cohn also touted renewable energy including solar and wind. On the campaign trail, Trump often said he would support coal miners and scale back regulations that hurt the industry, slamming Democrats’ “war on coal.” The Trump administration is set to soon decide on whether to remain in the Paris climate accord, which was agreed to under the Obama administration. As a candidate, Trump indicated he would pull the U.S. out of it. Read more at The Daily Beast. […]

Ultimate Old Soul Lorde Is Obsessed With Hanging Out at a 24-Hour Diner

Old soul and star singer Lorde is quirky: it’s her trademark, along with the signature offbeat, stripped-down music with lyrics that pack punch. So it should come as no surprise that the “Green Light” artist has some old-school preferences when it comes to hangout locales. Namely, she enjoys spending downtime in a nondescript 24-hour diner while she’s in New York, according to a new New York Times profile of the 20-year-old Kiwi. “Some low-key genius did the decorating,” Lorde explained of her attachment to the place, an unassuming open-all-night spot in midtown Manhattan dotted with potted houseplants and serving up her preferred eggs and zucchini sticks. “There’s something beautiful in every corner.” Plus, apparently the clientele is “mostly old,” leaving her unnoticed. She often tries to fly under the radar, taking public transportation and Ubers, where apparently she doesn’t get recognized. “I spent about four months here last year with my laptop out and my headphones on, listening to demos, looking at lists of what I needed to get done and writing songs,” she further elaborated on her connection to the diner. “People must have thought I was an aspiring poet or something.” The one downside: she needed to block out the Top 40 music the restaurant played at all times. The precocious Lorde, who catapulted onto the global pop stage after debuting breakout album Pure Heroine in 2013, has spent the last four years mostly out of the spotlight. Her sophomore album, Melodrama, drops in June. […]

President Trump Asked for Border Wall Plans. This Group Suggested a Hyperloop Instead

When the deadline came for submissions to build President Trump’s proposed wall along the Mexican border earlier this month, many went for a straightforward design. But not every plan is as straightforward. Some took the design process as a chance to express outlandish ideas (a 100-foot trench filled with nuclear waste), troll the President or just put forward their own utopian visions of how the border could work. Calling themselves the MADE collective, one group of 14 engineers, architects, ecologists, urban planners based in the U.S. and Mexico submitted a plan that’s basically the opposite from a “big, beautiful wall” entirely. The group proposed a shared territory between the U.S. and Mexico that would allow people and goods to flow freely between the two countries. A hyperloop — a type of mass transit that achieves super-fast speeds using low-pressure tubes — would stretch from San Diego/Tijuana, across the southwestern region to the Texas/Mexico border—connecting the cities that would form the new, independent Otra Nation. Commissioners from the area would be elected to represent the Otra Nation within the U.S. and Mexican government. Ninety thousand square kilometers of solar panels would allow the territory to create its own energy. The full proposal is laid out on a detailed website that includes photos, an application for their high-tech ID system, and a Change.org petition that will be hand-delivered to the presidents of the U.S. and Mexico if it gets 250,000 signatures. The whole thing sounds a bit like a scenario thought up by an amateur futurist late at night, but the creators behind the project insist they are sincere. In an interview with TIME, Memo Cruz, a member of the MADE collective based in Southern California, said the group consulted with constitutional lawyers and combined their collective knowledge to create a feasible—though notably far-fetched—plan. Cruz admits there is about a one in a million chance their proposal gets the time of day (in fact, he calls it an “eternally optimistic” plan) but he says the group hopes it at least sparks conversations about how border communities currently work and function and the impact a physical barrier could have on the current ecosystem. They believe the citizens of the U.S. and Mexico should have a say in a plan that could change their lives for generations to come. “The border situation is a very serious topic and its much more nuanced than a physical boundary,” Cruz says. “We understand the relationship between border cities both economically and through transit and so we wanted to have a positive, proactive solution,” based on economic stability, security based on trust, and collaborative government structures. The MADE collective wasn’t the only group to take a whimsical approach to the submission process. An informal discussion held by a group of Pittsburgh based artists led to the development of a series of proposals including a border wall made of pipe organs, a string of hammocks and a memorial to those who have died attempting to cross the border into the U.S. Artist Jennifer Meridian sketched out their thoughts, which were formally submitted to the federal government and shared on her Instagram. Leah Patgorski was among the artists tossing out ideas about alternative walls and she told TIME they think the idea of border wall itself is preposterous. “It’s obvious what they’re looking for and the motivations behind it so we thought it warranted a response that had sort of a different take,” she said. “As artists and designers we’re kind of in a position where they could shed a different light on these things.” Cruz insists their plan wasn’t made in protest and is a serious-minded effort to present an alternative solution to President Trump, though they recognize that some will laugh at it. Since reports of their design went public last week they’ve received angry responses from people on the left who are angry they’re even trying to help the president and those on the right who’ve threatened to “drop off” undocumented immigrants at their respective doorsteps. But the criticism has not bothered the group. They’re currently hoping to get enough signatures on their petition to push the governments of the U.S. and Mexico, both of which were sent copies of their plan, to come together and discuss the development of Otra Nation. “There are only two people we want to hear from: (Mexican President Enrique) Peña Nieto and Donald Trump,” Cruz said.

Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong on Trump: the ‘Harry Potter Generation’ Will Defeat Evil

Green Day—the punk rockers who brought us 2004’s American Idiot and the more recent politically-charged Revolution Radio—have never shied away from taking a rebellious approach to the U.S. social and political landscape. But in a new backstage interview with Rolling Stone, frontman Billie Joe Armstrong shared a somewhat more optimistic worldview. So Armstrong did not mince words when it came to the current administration. “Bush, as far as I’m concerned, is a war criminal,” Armstrong reflected on the era in which the band wrote American Idiot. “With Trump, we have no idea. Right now it’s just a freak show.” When asked about his kids’ futures (Armstrong is father to two aspiring musician sons), he said he looks at them as the “Harry Potter Generation,” referring to J.K. Rowling’s ubiquitous, popular magical universe and its built-in lessons in morality and resilience. “There’s a sense of justice about that, in beating Voldemort,” he explained of the story’s ultimate narrative arc of overcoming the villain. “It’s a classic tale of good versus evil. To have a role model like Harry Potter that says you can defeat evil, but still be a complicated human being. That gives me a lot of hope.” Armstrong and his bandmates Mike Dirnt and Tré Cool are in the midst of a giant tour that will take them around the world through the fall. […]
