Fall, Future, and Lawyer: Harvey Weinstein Says Oprah Called To Support Him, Oprah's Team Says That's Not True, She Only Wanted An Interview @balleralert Harvey Weinstein Says Oprah Called To Support Him, Oprah’s Team Says That’s Not True, She Only Wanted An Interview – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s been more than a week since The New York Times exposed super producer HarveyWeinstein. Since then, he has lost his job and his wife over the explosive sexual assault allegations against him. However, he says one person has shown him support in this troubling time, Oprah Winfrey. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to TMZ, the producer said Winfrey called him earlier this week to say she was ready to support him publically. Sources say Weinstein told his team that the superstar TV host advised him to speak out and defend himself and said that once he did, she would be his support. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, a spokesperson for Winfrey says that is simply not true. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Oprah has not spoken to Harvey Weinstein directly. Someone from his team reached out to her to see if she would talk to him, and she said she would if it was for an interview. There are no plans for an interview at this time,” the rep said, adding that the host was interested in a “60 minute” interview with the producer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ But, the spokesperson made it clear that Oprah only wanted the truth from Weinstein, if he agreed to sit down with her. “I’ve been processing the accounts of Harvey Weinstein’s behavior and haven’t been able to find the words to articulate the magnitude of the situation,” Winfrey said on Thursday. “This is the story of one predator and his many victims; but it is also about an overwhelming systemic enabling, and until that story is fully told we will fall far short of stopping future depredations on a similar scale,” she added, quoting James Schamus. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the meantime, TMZ reports that Weinstein will challenge his firing by The Weinstein Company on Oct 17 at the board meeting. Although the producer is at a live-in rehab facility at this time, he will be present by phone and his lawyer will be at the meeting to present his case.

Club, cnn.com, and College: NEVER CONFUSE EDUCATION WITH INTELLIGENCE THIS PRISON DEBATE TEAM WENT UPAGAINST THEEREETHOUCHTPROJECTCOM THE PRESTIGIOUS HARVARD DEBATE TEAM... AND WON! New York inmates defeat Harvard debate team Story highlights The Eastern New York Correctional Facility's debate team has also beaten West Point The debate team is part of the Bard Prison Initiative, which has 300 inmates enrolled (CNN)In a debate between Harvard College students and those from any other college, some might guess that the Harvard students would win. And if the other side was a group of inmates at a maximum-security prison? Maybe even more so. That would be a mistake. Inmates from the Eastern New York Correctional Facility defeated the prestigious Harvard debate team in mid-September as part of the Bard Prison Initiative, a program run by Bard College to provide college education to qualifying prisoners, according to the Wall Street Journal. If you knew the prison debate club's record, you might have voted for the inmates. They've defeated a nationally ranked team from the University of Vermont and the U.S. Military Academy in West Point, New York. (They lost a rematch against West Point, and it's become something of a rivalry.) The prison club had invited the Harvard College Debating Union to participate. Inmates had to defend a point of view with which they fiercely disagreed, a common practice in debate competition: "Resolved: Public schools in the United States should have the ability to deny enrollment to undocumented students." After the debate, Carlos Polanco told the Wall Street Journal that he would never want to keep a child from attending school but that he was grateful for his chance to attend Bard College in prison. "We have been graced with opportunity," said Polanco, 31, who is in prison for manslaughter. "They make us believe in ourselves." The Harvard club seemed to take the loss gracefully.

Poop, Roomba, and Rugs: love it with a caveat November 4, 201 By Previously my wife and l read the post about someone's Roomba trailing through dog poop. We laughed and didn't think another thing about it Let me tell you how yesterday went. While at a training for work l receive a text message from my 10 year daughter Dad, please call me the floors are dead.' I assumed that auto correct had gotten involved and was trying to figure out what it had corrected from. Also in the back of my mind l assumed our 14 year old lab Dalmatian mix had passed away, only to be found by our daughter. attempted to call my daughter with no answer and then called my wife. My wife had received the same text and had talked to our daughter Our lab is fine, our daughter was not. It appears that during our absence our 85 pound Band-dog mastiff had a bit of stomach distress. This in its self isn't a big deal as pet owner we understand that periodically "poop happens." What caused our very articulate 10 year daughter to become stymied was the fact that Rudy (our Roomba's name at 1415 hours started his tour of duty Roomba's name) at 1415 hours started his tour of duty Our daughter entered the house at around 1430. Rudy had been diligently cleaning our house for 15 minutes give or take. It seems that he had made a bee line towards the piles of dog stomach distress and then gleefully in a poop filled rampage "cleaned" the house. don't know if dog excrement somehow is a super boost to Roombas (much like speed boosts on video games or if Rudy somewhere deep in his programing has a code built in that basically states "if dog mess is found, crank all operations up to 11 But it appears that in a very small bit of time he had somehow traversed into the master bedroom, the hall way, kitchen and of course the living room As any Roomba owner knows they travel in spiral patterns, they bump into walls and furniture and they stop and spin looking for dust or hair. This built in patterning is truly effective in the elimination of pet hair, dust and small bits of debris. This patterning also seems to mimic the path a three year old hopped up on red bull and given an open full paint can, would have. If you keep the afore mentioned three year old in mind and substitute poop for paint that is what we are looking at. Roombas also have a small propeller like, brush attachment. This attachment sticks out in front of the Roomba. Its' original purpose appears to be reaching into corners where the round Roomba cannot reach. Unfortunately, this attachment also seems to have the ability to violate the known laws of physics by flinging poop in all directions, angles around corners, inside locked cabinets, and oddly straight up in the air to hit a 12 foot ceiling. So give that three year old a fan and let them swing it around as much as possible So back to our daughter, as she entered the house she was struck by a smell that could only be described as Cerebos's backyard after being fed Taco Bell and shock, she looked down, up and around and observed the poopy Pollock patterning on the walls.

Poop, Roomba, and Rugs: love it with a caveat

 Previously my wife and l read the post about someone's
 Roomba trailing through dog poop. We laughed and didn't
 think another thing about it
 Let me tell you how yesterday went. While at a training for
 work l receive a text message from my 10 year daughter
 Dad, please call me the floors are dead.' I assumed that
 auto correct had gotten involved and was trying to figure
 out what it had corrected from. Also in the back of my
 mind l assumed our 14 year old lab Dalmatian mix had
 passed away, only to be found by our daughter.
 attempted to call my daughter with no answer and then
 called my wife. My wife had received the same text and
 had talked to our daughter
 Our lab is fine, our daughter was not. It appears that
 during our absence our 85 pound Band-dog mastiff had a

 had been diligently cleaning our house for 15 minutes

 towards the piles of dog stomach distress and then
 gleefully in a poop filled rampage "cleaned" the house.
 don't know if dog excrement somehow is a super boost to

 So back to our daughter, as she entered the house she
 was struck by a smell that could only be described as
