Alec Baldwin has now clarified his tweets about Shia LaBeouf’s exit from Oprhans on Broadway and it’s not exactly nice or pretty:

“I can tell you that, in all honesty, I don’t think he’s in a good position to be giving interpretations of what the theater is and what the theater isn’t. I mean, he was never in the theater. He came into a rehearsal room for six or seven days and, uh — you know, sometimes film actors — I mean, there are people who are film actors who have a great legacy in the theater.

…You know, it’s a really very, very long, slow, deliberate — it’s the opposite of film acting. It’s a much more intensive and kind of thoughtful process. And there are people who that’s just not their thing. So for those people who I think it’s not their thing, I’m not really interested in their opinion of it. But thanks.”

And Taylor Swift says:

“For a female to write about her feelings, and then be portrayed as some clingy, insane, desperate girlfriend in need of making you marry her and have kids with her, I think that’s taking something that potentially should be celebrated — a woman writing about her feelings in a confessional way — that’s taking it and turning it and twisting it into something that is frankly a little sexist.”

Also, that there’s a special place in hell for Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.

And so then Amy Poehler said:

“Aw, I feel bad if she was upset. I am a feminist, and she is a young and talented girl. That being said, I do agree I am going to hell. But for other reasons. Mostly boring tax stuff.”

Anna Friel shared this story about the time she sent her father porn:

“I sent an email to my dad with some pictures of Jean Raymond,’ she said. ‘He called me afterwards and said, “I think you’re going a bit far on this one.” I wondered what he meant and then I realized I’d sent him an email attachment of an actual porn shoot that Jean did – I mean, everything. I was mortified.”

‘The hell you say?’ NBC reportedly wanted Jon Stewart to host MTP

‘The hell you say?’ NBC reportedly wanted Jon Stewart to host MTP

According to New York Magazine, that pretty much sums it up:

Unreal. RT @sahilkapur: "NBC was prepared to offer Stewart virtually ‘anything' to bring him over.” http://t.co/KQTSLP7wNx

— Noah Rothman (@NoahCRothman) October 8, 2014

From the Daily Intelligencer:

Before choosing Todd, NBC News president Deborah Turness held negotiations with Jon Stewart about hosting Meet the Press, according to three senior television sources with knowledge of the talks. One source explained that NBC was prepared to offer Stewart virtually “anything” to bring him over. “They were ready to back the Brinks truck up,” the source said. A spokesperson for NBC declined to comment. James Dixon, Stewart’s agent, did not respond to multiple requests for comment.

Dang. That’s a juicy little news nugget, isn’t it?

— Anthony Eboly (@AnthonyBialy) October 8, 2014

OMG. NBC wanted Jon Stewart to host Meet The Press. Oh journalism, how far have you fallen? That’s just pathetic.

— Heather (@hboulware) October 8, 2014

NBC is a reputable news organization. Tough and completely not biased. That's why they wanted Jon Stewart to host Meet the Press. #wait

— RB (@RBPundit) October 8, 2014

Eh, it’s NBC.

Jon Stewart deadpans to camera at thought of NBC hiring him to host Meet the Press (suggested segment title: Bleat the Press)

— Anthony Eboly (@AnthonyBialy) October 8, 2014

Jon Stewart hosting Meet the Press would mean it's just as unintentionally funny.

— Anthony Eboly (@AnthonyBialy) October 8, 2014

So nothing would really change, then.

Jon Stewart hosting a Sunday morning political show is just as unbelievable as having George Stephanopoulos host one. Oh wait…

— Andrew Johnson (@AndrewE_Johnson) October 8, 2014

If people are dumb enough to get their news from Jon Stewart, does it really matter which channel they tune into to do it?

— A.J. Winkelspecht (@ajwink) October 8, 2014

Good point.

Sure, Stewart is a clown. Maybe MTP would do better with a clown. Didja think of that?

— Gabriel Malor (@gabrielmalor) October 8, 2014

They sure as heck couldn’t do much worse.

Kudos to NBC for thinking outside the box w/ the Jon Stewart idea. The old Sunday morning show model is deader than dead.

— jon gabriel (@exjon) October 8, 2014

Jon Stewart is no more a liberal hack than David Gregory. And Stewart is more respectable.

— jon gabriel (@exjon) October 8, 2014

Fair enough!

Roofing should concern any homeowner, especially when there are problems with leaks or poor insulation. You can actually learn more about roofing yourself. Read through this article if you want to learn all about roofing and how to save money on materials or a contractor.

Leaks come from having damaged shingles, but don’t discount a foundation problem as well. Water can enter into many areas that dry rot has occurred. You should examine all entry points to make sure there is no problem.

Don’t go up on your roof during wet weather. A wet roof could cause you to fall; this may result in a bad injury or worse. If you work on the roof on your own, work on it when it is sunny and dry outside.

TIP! Remember: safety first. Don’t try to fix a leaking roof, for instance, while it is still storming outside.

Consider the climate in your area when thinking about roofing. Clay roofs work great for dry climates and may keep the home cool. Clay roof tiles in wet climates as they will cause your roof to deteriorate much quicker than other materials would. If you don’t know what material is best in your area, you can inquire with a roofing professional.

TIP! When you hire a contractor for your roofing project, do some research. You shouldn’t just go with the one who has the best ad or the lowest prices.

Scientists Discover Strange New Brain Cell Shape

In your typical brain cell, the branched dendrites receive electrical signals from other neurons, and once they’re processed, these signals are passed on to other neurons along the axon, a long extension of the cell. Now, researchers have discovered a brain cell shape that has never been seen before — where the axon arises directly from one of the dendrites. The findings were published in Neuron last week.

The axon and dendrites are usually connected by the neuron’s cell body. Rather than conduct signals via the neuron’s center, these unusual nerve cells take a shortcut to transmit information: The signals go around the cell like a bypass road. “Input signals at this dendrite do not need not be propagated across the cell body,” explains study author Christian Thome of Heidelberg University in a news release. And they’re more efficiently forwarded than signals coming from elsewhere. 

The team colored the places of origin of axons of pyramidal cells in the hippocampus, a brain region involved in memory. In more than half of the cells, they found that the axon doesn’t emerge from the cell body but originates at a dendrite instead. Then, to study the effect of signals received at these axon-carrying dendrites, the team injected a neurotransmitter called glutamate into the brain tissue of mice that can be activated by light pulses. Using a high-resolution microscope, the team directed the light beam directly to a specific dendrite, and then activated the neurotransmitter to simulate an input signal.

“Our measurements indicate that dendrites that are directly connected to the axon, actively propagate even small input stimuli and activate the neuron,” says study author Tony Kelly from University of Bonn. They call it “privileged synaptic input.”

Using computer simulations, the team predicts that this effect is particularly pronounced when the information flow from other dendrites to the axon is suppressed by inhibitory input signals at the cell body. “That way,” Kelly adds, “information transmitted by this special dendrite influences the behavior of the nerve cell more than input from any other dendrite.” 

To figure out why these unusual shapes are there, the team is now looking for the biological functions that are strengthened through these sorts of dendrites.
