Gorsuch hearing puts spotlight on medical aid in dying

Gorsuch hearing puts spotlight on medical aid in dyingAs Supreme Court nominee Judge Neil Gorsuch faces a Senate confirmation vote, a 2006 book he authored arguing against assisted suicide and euthanasia is receiving renewed attention, and so is the related, although distinct, practice of medical aid in dying. The husband of the late Brittany Maynard, who ended her own life with medication in 2014 after being diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor, says Gorsuch would alter his views if he saw the reality of the practice. “The experience that I went through … if Neil Gorsuch or anyone in his position had seen firsthand what medical aid in dying is, he would probably have a much different opinion,” Dan Diaz said in an interview with Yahoo News Global Anchor Katie Couric.

Gorsuch frustrates Democrats at confirmation hearing

Gorsuch frustrates Democrats at confirmation hearingDuring a 10-hour grilling from senators Tuesday, Judge Neil Gorsuch offered few hints as to his judicial philosophy, frustrating the Judiciary Committee’s Democrats in a polished and calm performance. Gorsuch — sprinkling his answers to the committee’s questions with “gosh” and “golly” and “goodness” — deftly dodged Democratic senators’ attempts to pin him down on abortion, the scope of the Second Amendment and the Citizens United campaign finance decision. The 49-year-old Colorado judge also repeatedly insisted he would maintain his independence from President Trump and said no one in the administration had asked him to promise to rule a certain way on cases once he got to the court–neutralizing one of Democrats’ main lines of attack against him.

Apparently the Cleveland Cavaliers Are Trolling Everyone in the NBA With PB&J’s
Petty champs

The Cleveland Cavaliers have a recent history of trolling, led by the master of this delicate craft, LeBron James.

The internet noticed when James wore hats and shirts that appeared to have fun with the Warriors loss after the Cavs took the 2016 NBA Finals. (He eventually explained at least one wardrobe choice was coincidental.) But later last year, there was James’ annual Halloween party where King James had tombstone cookies for the Warriors players Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. The most recent development from the team, however, might just be the most unusual yet.

Tucked neatly into ESPN‘s Baxter Holmes’ in-depth look into why the humble peanut butter and jelly sandwich is the NBA’s secret weapon of choice is a brief but pertinent anecdote about how the Cavs use even a simple PB&J as an opportunity to let rivals know exactly how they feel about them.

According to Baxter, the Cavs offer about a dozen Smucker’s prepackaged “Uncrustables” PB&Js to their opponents — the “Uncrustable” being a processed, once-frozen and sugary snack that players looking to play at their best should probably avoid.

The Cleveland players feast on “20 artisanal PB&J’s prior to tip-off, with homemade grape and raspberry jelly, as well as almond butter-and-banana and peanut butter-and-banana sandwiches,” a move that Baxter calls a form of “asymmetric nutritional warfare.”

The Cleveland Cavaliers, 2016 NBA champions and trollers extraordinaire.
