The Strange Reason John McCain Refused to Take Direct Flights From Phoenix to D.C. for 30 Years

When federal restrictions prevented airlines from flying directly between Washington, D.C. and any city more than 1,250 miles away, Sen. John McCain took a stand on behalf of his adoptive hometown of Phoenix.

The federal perimeter rule required that all flights to and from Reagan National Airport must be shorter than 1,250 miles, and in 1999, the six-term senator led an effort to repeal it, hoping this would improve business for Phoenix-based airline America West and benefit Arizona in general, according to Travel + Leisure. The flight between Phoenix and Washington, D.C. is 1,979 miles.

The Vietnam vet’s bill failed, but it did encourage Congress to start making “beyond-perimeter exemptions.” Starting in 2000, America West began service from Reagan National Airport to Phoenix, USA Today reports, but McCain never boarded the flight.

Some opponents of the senator suggested McCain’s efforts to eliminate the rule were to shorten his commute, not to benefit the people of Arizona, something he felt he couldn’t stand for.

“To John, that was such an abhorrent thing to be accused of, he just took it off the table and said, ‘OK, I won’t fly it,”’ American Airlines CEO Doug Parker, then the CEO of America West, told USA Today. “I don’t think any other member would make that statement.”

McCain’s stubbornness once got in the way of his professional commitments, Parker shared. The late senator was flying to an event where he was slated to introduce then-President George W. Bush, but his connecting flight was canceled.

The man who would stand in for him, another Arizona Republican, had taken the direct flight.

“He wouldn’t take the nonstop even to get to an event on time,” Parker said.

Sen. Jeff Flake, also a Republic from Arizona, backed up Parker’s story about McCain’s commitment, as well. Flake began his career in Washington, D.C, in 2001, it wasn’t until “years and years” later that McCain finally took the direct flight.

Flake remembers that when he decided to make the switch, he said, “I’ve done my penance, I guess.”

Parker said that one of the first times Sen. McCain used the direct flight was to arrive home in time to see one of his seven children graduate. When there wasn’t any controversy afterward, Parker recalled McCain thought, “OK, no one seems to care. I think the statute of limitations has run out.”

Sen. McCain died on Saturday at age 81, one day after his family announced that he would be stopping treatment for his stage-four brain cancer. He was diagnosed in July 2017.

“Last summer, Senator John McCain shared with Americans the news our family already knew: he had been diagnosed with an aggressive glioblastoma, and the prognosis was serious,” the family’s statement said. “In the year since, John has surpassed expectations for his survival. But the progress of disease and the inexorable advance of age render their verdict. With his usual strength of will, he has now chosen to discontinue medical treatment.”

Sen. McCain will be laid to rest on Saturday at the U.S. Naval Academy Cemetery in Annapolis, Maryland, with a private service at the National Cathedral beforehand. On Friday, there will be a public viewing in the United States Capitol before a procession from to the Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial.

Cumberbatch Currently Unsure When Dr. Strange 2 Would Happen

Marvel Studios is currently not working on Doctor Strange 2, according to Benedict Cumberbatch.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly Cumberbatch, who portrays Dr. Stephen Strange in the MCU, revealed he’s currently unsure when Doctor Strange 2 would happen and that, for the time being, there have been no talks of making a sequel.

“Not at the moment, no,” Cumberbatch said when asked when he might be shooting Doctor Strange 2. “The masterplan is continually in flux, so it would be out of order for me to speculate.”

The first Doctor Strange film released in 2016 and in our review of the movie, we say it successfully “expands the MCU into a very trippy, supernatural realm.” Fans can watch Doctor Strange in action again quite soon in the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War, which hits theaters on April 27.

Strange’s status quo has changed considerably thanks to Marvel Legacy, with the character handing over his home, his magical artifacts and the very title of Sorcerer Supreme to Loki. However, Strange clearly doesn’t trust the god of mischief, and this issue saw him work clandestinely to prevent Loki from harnessing a spell called “The Exile of Singhsoon,” which would allow Loki to harness all the remaining magical energy in the universe. Here he is explaining the gravity of the situation to Bats, his new talking dog sidekick:

Brainiac, Doomsday, Hawkwoman, Adam Strange to Appear on Krypton TV Series

Today at the Comic-Con panel for Krypton — coming to Syfy in 2018 — DC TV head Geoff Johns revealed that, although Krypton is a prequel series, DC heroes Adam Strange and Hawkwoman, and DC villains Brainiac and Doomsday, will be a part of the show.

So how will that work? Well, Johns explained that while Krypton takes place in the past and centers around Superman’s grandfather, Seyg-El (Cameron Cuffe), “it’s about a conspiracy from the present that’s traveled back in time to Krypton to prevent the birth of Superman.” That’s where we get Adam Strange and Hawkwoman battling to stop the evil plan and save the present.

Johns then went on to drop the name Doomsday as another character who will arrive on the show, along with Brainiac. Executive producer Cameron Welsh added “What we love about Brainiac is that not only is he an incredible foil for anyone he faces, but also he has a really deep history dating back to his family on Colu. He is the nexus point between man and machine, which is a very relevant thing to be talking about now. He’s a very real character.”

Goop Deletes Yet Another Strange Health Claim After Getting Fact-Checked By NASA

At this point, we’re not surprised when Goop’s health and wellness claims turn out to be shady. But this latest case is out-of-this-world strange. 

Gwyneth Paltrow’s lifestyle site pulled a claim about “energy-balancing” body stickers after Gizmodo spoke with a NASA expert who pointed out the claim was untrue. Goop initially promoted the pricey Body Vibes stickers ($ 60 for a 10-packby claiming they “rebalance the energy frequency in our bodies” and even treat certain ailments thanks in part to being made with the “same conductive carbon material NASA uses to line space suits so they can monitor an astronaut’s vitals during wear.”

But Gizmodo’s Rae Paoletta published a piece Thursday in which a NASA expert pointed out the agency’s spacesuits don’t contain conductive carbon material at all, not to mention he found the supposed science behind the product to be “a load of BS.” Goop subsequently pulled the spacesuit claim, though not the piece promoting the stickers.  

Meanwhile, Body Vibes’ website still claims its stickers “use an exclusive material originally developed for NASA” that “can hold specific frequency charges that naturally stimulate the human body’s receptors.” 

Suuure they do.

A post shared by Body Vibes (@mybodyvibes) on

Goop is no stranger to sticky health claims: This year alone, the brand caught fire for plugging needless products like leaf-scented perfume and pricey “anti-mold” shower heads. Then there’s the potentially dangerous health advice, like its suggestions to use vaginal eggs and consider iodine supplements, which can actually harm some healthy people. 

Through it all, Paltrow stands by her brand. She recently announced she’s taking a break from acting to focus on being a female business leader, a role “that people are not comfortable with,” she said this week at the Cannes Lions Festival. She also joked to Jimmy Kimmel about her site’s wacky recommendations earlier this month, saying, “I don’t know what the fuck we talk about!” 

After this latest go-round, we definitely don’t either. Meanwhile, Goop is looking into NASA’s comments, according to a statement sent to HuffPost: 

As we have always explained, advice and recommendations included on goop are not formal endorsements and the opinions expressed by the experts and companies we profile do not necessarily represent the views of goop. Our content is meant to highlight unique products and offerings, find open-minded alternatives, and encourage conversation.

Tilda Swinton Releases Email Exchange With Margaret Cho About Whitewashing In ‘Doctor Strange’

Everyone in Hollywood has apparently learned a lesson from the Taylor Swift/Kim Kardashian Snapchat debacle of 2016: always keep your receipts.

On Wednesday, comedian Margaret Cho revealed that Tilda Swinton reached out over email to discuss the controversy surrounding her casting as the Ancient One in “Doctor Strange,” a character who is a Tibetan man in comic book canon. Swinton’s casting was immediately met with resistance from the Asian and Asian-American community, which has historically been erased and stereotyped on screen due to Hollywood selecting white actors to play roles intended for them.

“Tilda eventually emailed me and she said that she didn’t understand why people were so mad about ‘Doctor Strange’ and she wanted to talk about it, and wanted to get my take on why all the Asian people were mad,” Cho told actor Bobby Lee on his podcast TigerBelly. “It was so weird.”

Cho and Swinton evidently had a “long discussion” about whitewashing in the film industry, which the “Snowpiercer” actress asked her not make public. The conversation struck an uncomfortable note for Cho, an unapologetic critic of Hollywood’s representational deficiencies, who in her own words, ended up feeling like a “house Asian.” 

In response to Cho’s interview, Swinton’s team released the entire unedited email exchange on Friday for “the opportunity to clarify and with all good wishes to all,” according to Vulture. Later that night, Cho made a statement reiterating that “Asian actors should play Asian roles,” but writing that she remains a huge fan of Swinton’s.

The five emails between the two actresses were written in May 2016 months before the premiere of “Doctor Strange,” as the backlash to Swinton’s casting gained traction. You can read them below:

Dear Margaret,

We’ve never met, but you’ve been in my head for years – I’m a fan.
I want to ask you a favour now which is sprung out of a truly important social conversation but may be heading for some crazy-making shit.

The diversity debate – ALL STRENGTH to it – has come knocking at the door of Marvel’s new movie DR STRANGE.

I am told that you are aware of this.  But since I am that extinct beast that does no social media, I am unaware of what exactly anybody has said about any of it.  I believe there are some ironies about this particular film being a target, but I’m frankly much more interested in listening than saying anything much.

I would really love to hear your thoughts and have a – private – conversation about it. Are you up for this?  Can we e-mail? 

No wrong answer here.  Tell me to fuck off if you feel like it.  In any and every case,

Sure! I’m a big fan of yours – since orlando! 

Well, what do you know so far? I can tell you from my perspective what’s happening!

The character you played in Dr Strange was originally written as a Tibetan man and so there’s a frustrated population of Asian Americans who feel the role should have gone to a person of Asian descent. 

The largerpart of the debate has to do with the ‘whitewashing’ of Asian and Asian Americans in film. Our stories are told by white actors over and over again and we feel at a loss to know how to cope with it. 

Protest seems to be the only solution- we just want more representative images of ourselves in film. TV is getting better in terms of diversity but film is lagging behind. 

Anyway – hope this helps! We can totally email and we can be private! Best, m

Thank you so much for your reply! So grateful to have a chance to chew this cud with you.  Super clear.

Here’s the situation I reckon Marvel was in. The old comic books from way back when are stuffed with stereotypes that we could all find offensive for any number of reasons. 

The film – like any film adaptation – is a riff on the books. The Ancient One may have been written as a Tibetan man in the comics, but Marvel, in a conscious effort to shake up stereotypes, wanted to avoid tired cliché. They cast Chiwetel Ejiofor as the second lead – a white Transylvanian in the books. And wrote a significant Asian character to be played by Benedict Wong.

With The Ancient One (the ‘wise old Eastern geezer’ Fu Manchu type in the book), wanting to switch up the gender (another diversity department) and not wanting to engage with the old ‘Dragon Lady’ trope, they chose to write the character as being of (ancient) Celtic origin and offered that role to me. Presumably on Ancient grounds. I accepted happily, impressed that, for once, they aimed to disrupt the ‘wisdom must be male’ never-ending story – and, by the way, for once, wanting to feature a woman who’s a badass, over 26 and not simply bursting out of a bikini.

The biggest irony about this righteous protest targeting this particular film is the pains the makers went to to avoid it.

A  – personal – irony to my being even remotely involved in this controversy is what I stand up for and always have.  Whether it is challenging the idea of what women look like, or how any of us live our lives, or how we educate our children, diversity is pretty much my comfort zone.  The idea of being caught on the wrong side of this debate is a bit of a nightmare to me. 

I am as sick as anybody at the lack of a properly diverse cinematic universe. Pretty much sick of the Anglophone world in general, sick of all the men’s stories, sick of all the symmetrical features and Mattel-inspired limbs..

I’m a Scottish woman of 55 who lives in the Highlands. There’s precious little projected on contemporary cinema screens that means a great deal to my life, if truth be told.

So

How best might we focus this thing?  To offer intelligent and empowered thinking..  And see something constructive coming out of this moment? 

Ducking the issue is not what I am about.  I want to meet it, but, if possible, move things forward by how I meet it.

I realise, as far as I am concerned, this possibly means saying nothing:  so far I have attempted to correct the notion that I accepted an offer to play an Asian.. (!!) the most significant and damaging misunderstanding out there, it seems. Beyond that, I don’t feel it appropriate for me to add anything, certainly at this point.

But I would love to know what ideas you – or anyone you know –  have of something properly progressive to bring to this table. The debate is so important for all of us. It needs to build itself on strong ground.

I’m totally unfamiliar with all the comic books so I can’t speak on anything about that – and the efforts to make this film more diverse is unfortunately lost in the translation here. Hopefully that comes up more when the film comes out and is finally brought to audiences! 

I think that it’s just a timing thing – Asian Americans are fed up with not being given roles even if the part called for someone of Asian descent  – and that the Ancient One role was being used as another example of ‘whitewashing’. Social media has grown to the point where we can use it effectively to express – well whatever. 

I believe very much that you as an artist are about diversity and your body of work shows that – but this particular case of the Ancient One is just another in a long list of ‘whitewashed’ Asian characters and so you’re likely to feel the heat of history. 

I am not sure what to say other than I am glad you want to meet the issue head on – it’s a tough one I know.

I think that talking about the issue frankly – as you have done with me is the right way to go. It’s hard I know – people get very angry and it’s difficult to know what to do to get around that anger. But you should know that it’s anger built up over many many years of invisibility within film/tv/media that’s just exploded now with this film. And it’s not just you – It’s also directed at Scarlett Johanssen for Ghost in the Shell.

Maybe what’s best is the highlight the diversity that you do see in the film and that being why you felt drawn to the project.

Also acknowledge that you’re all about diversity and how you want the films you make to be diverse and how film can benefit from that.

I’d even suggest getting into producing content that would give Asian American voices a platform? That’s really what is being asked for. Asian Americans feel as if we have no place in film and so we want one to be created. Whether that is found in supporting projects that would bring Asians into the foreground or even just discussing what it would take to do such a thing would help.

I can’t thank you enough for this.

By the way, the project I have been developing as a producer over the past two years is with Bong Joon Ho – my colleague from SNOWPIERCER – a film called OKJA shooting this summer in Korea, NYC and Vancouver – to my knowledge the first ever half Korean/half English speaking film, which we are making with Plan B and Netflix, in which the lead is a 14 year old girl from Korea and which stars Steven Yeun, amongst others..  fingers crossed it will be a big deal and help the landscape somewhat.. I hope and believe it will.

‘Doctor Strange’ Tops Foreign Box Office With $60.2 Million

Marvel’s “Doctor Strange” topped the foreign box office for the second consecutive weekend, earning $ 60.2 million. The superhero film’s global total stands at $ 492.6 million, which passes the hauls of several previous costumed hero adventures, among them “The Incredible Hulk” ($ 263 million), “Captain America: The First Avenger” ($ 371 million), and “Thor” ($ 449 million).

‘Doctor Strange’ Takes Top Spot At The Box Office For Second Weekend In A Row

LOS ANGELES (Variety.com) – Alien invasion thriller “Arrival” capitalized on strong reviews to score an impressive debut, while Marvel’s “Doctor Strange” topped the box office for the second consecutive weekend.

The superhero adventure picked up $ 43 million to bring its domestic total to $ 153 million. DreamWorks Animation’s “Trolls,” another holdover, came in second, earning $ 35 million to bring its stateside haul to $ 94 million after two weeks of release.

“Arrival” took third, easily outpacing pre-release tracking with a debut of $ 24 million. Heading into the weekend, the film was expected to launch to $ 16 million. “Arrival” was directed by Denis Villeneuve, who has built a steady following with the likes of “Prisoners” and “Sicario.” It focuses on a linguist (Amy Adams) who is recruited to try to communicate with alien visitors. Paramount picked up domestic rights to the film for $ 20 million. FilmNation, Lava Bear and 21 Laps financed the $ 47 million production.

“Arrival’s” strong box office result is a shot in the arm for Paramount, which has weathered a string of flops such as “Zoolander 2,” “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows,” and “Ben-Hur.” The instability starts at the top. Viacom, Paramount’s corporate parent, was engulfed in an internecine war for much of the past year, as Shari Redstone, the daughter of founder Sumner Redstone, successfully worked to oust Philippe Dauman from his perch as the company’s CEO. Paramount chief Brad Grey is trying to convince Shari Redstone that he has the vision to lead the company out of its doldrums, and has pointed to films like “Arrival” as proof that the studio’s slate is improving.

Universal’s “Almost Christmas” debuted to a solid $ 15.6 million across 2,376 locations for a fourth place finish. The comedy about a dysfunctional family gathering for the holidays after their mother dies was economical to produce and carries a $ 17 million budget. It stars Danny Glover, Gabrielle Union, Kimberly Elise and Jessie Usher.

Liongate’s “Hacksaw Ridge” rounded out the top five, earning $ 10.8 million to bring the war drama’s total to $ 32.3 million.

Among the weekend’s other wide releases, EuropaCorp’s “Shut In” stumbled out of the gate, kicking off to a paltry $ 3.7 million from 2,058 locations.

Sony bowed “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk” on two screens where it made $ 120,300. The Iraq War drama is shot at an accelerated framerate, but few theaters will be able to exhibit the film at that speed. The limited release did exhibit the picture in the immersive format that director Ang Lee has pushed theaters to incorporate. It was screened in 4K, 3D, and at 120 frames per second. “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk” will expand next weekend on to more than 800 theaters.

In limited release, Sony Pictures Classics debuted “Elle” on two screens where it earned $ 56,012. The thriller stars Isabelle Huppert as a woman who plots revenge against the man who raped her.

The boys soon discover there is more amiss than the kidnapping of Linus Peres. Other students are reportedly becoming addicted to pain medication. During their incognito investigation, they find the administrators; local doctors who treat the injured students, hiding behind the medical Rule of Double Effect which protects them from prosecution. But Jake smells something even more sinister and discovers strange notes and inferences in the journal of a prominent, female, Doctor of Osteopath, during an afterhour’s search of her office. This discovery leads him to find a way to get closer to the doctor, which may have been a big mistake.A run-in with an over eager police officer sets the investigation back, but the boys get creative and learn that the kidnapped student is being held in the estate of Theresa Stanger, the mysterious, pain doctor who becomes the focus of Jake’s inquiry. Theresa Stanger is a very attractive woman. She is lean and tall and professionally attired. She has a commanding presence and an air of intelligence without being arrogant.

There is no dinner party and Jake is forced into bondage, to a world he never thought existed.

The Strange Life of Nikola Tesla


The Strange Life of Nikola Tesla is the renamed “PART ONE THE LIFE OF TESLA (by Nikola Tesla)” of the book “THE WALL OF LIGHT NIKOLA TESLA AND THE VENUSIAN SPACE SHIP THE X-12” written by Arthur H. Matthews and published in 1973.The Strange Life of Nikola Tesla was published by Kolmogorov-Smirnov Publishing (with no identifying publish date), and subsequently became the first online version of Nikola Tesla’s Autobiography. It was transcribed by John Roland Penner in 1994 from a small typed booklet, photocopied and stapled. Although it is the first electronic version of Tesla’s autobiography available online it contains many significant errors carried over from the original photocopied text. Online Internet scrutiny has subsequently revealed numerous omissions and additions that did not appear in the original serial text published in Electrical Experimenter magazine. The original six-part series published in Electrical Experimenter Magazine in 1919 has been republished in book form as: My Inventions, The Autobiography of Nikola Tesla (Hart Brothers, Williston, 1983).

Shia LaBeouf Gives Strange Silent Hour-Long ‘Interview’

Celebrate your Thanksgiving by watching Shia LaBeouf be silent for an hour. In the Winter 2014 issue of Dazed, writer Aimee Cliff chronicled her time arranging an “interview” with LaBeouf. They emailed at length about his recent projects including the “I Am Sorry” installation in LA, “Fury,” “Nymphomaniac” and “his newfound affinity with metamodernism.” He suggested that when they met in person, they wouldn’t speak. When they finally did sit down in a London hotel, LaBeouf and Cliff strapped Go-Pros to their heads and sat for an hour in silence.

During these emails, LaBeouf also wrote that he had been raped during “I Am Sorry,” the exhibit in which he met people one by one (also in silence) for five days. His account of the incident is below:

One woman who came with her boyfriend, who was outside the door when this happened, whipped my legs for ten minutes and then stripped my clothing and proceeded to rape me…There were hundreds of people in line when she walked out with dishevelled hair and smudged lipstick. It was no good, not just for me but her man as well. On top of that my girl was in line to see me, because it was Valentine’s Day and I was living in the gallery for the duration of the event – we were separated for five days, no communication. So it really hurt her as well, as I guess the news of it travelled through the line. When she came in she asked for an explanation, and I couldn’t speak, so we both sat with this unexplained trauma silently. It was painful.

10 Things I Learned From Screening Love Is Strange

1. The last time I saw John Lithgow acting he played a serial murderer in Dexter, loved seeing him as one-half of a couple in a nearly 40 year relationship.

2. Alfred Molina portrayed the other half of the couple. Spoiler alert: his character has been faithful in the relationship, Lithgow’s character has not been.

3. I know Marisa Tomei has a body of work before and after My Cousin Vinnie but for me,that is her seminal role.

4. The Catholic Church is homophobic, it appears it is okay to be gay and teach in a Catholic school, but ironically you can’t get married.

5. Chopin’s music figures prominently and beautifully in the soundtrack.

6. Best line of the movie, uttered by Molina’s character:

Life has its obstacles, but I’ve learned early on that they will always be lessened if faced with honesty

7. Independent films are alive and well.

8. Morality clauses exist in contracts and are enforced.

9. Some folks would rather live apart in a bunk bed in New York than together in the suburbs in Poughkeepsie.

10. There are lots of relationships in this film and unanswered questions. I am fine with that.

Travels In A Strange State

Travels In A Strange State


By most people’s standards, Josie Dew is hugely adventurous. By American standards, she is completely insane. For Americans drive everywhere: through cinemas, restaurants, banks, even trees. But driving past Josie as she pedalled across America was a new and alarming experience. On her eight-month journey Josie experienced it all; race riots in Los Angeles, impossible heat in Death Valley, Sexual Tantric Seminars in Hawaii. From Utah to the Great Lakes, via improbable places like Zzyzx and Squaw Tit, her two-wheeled odyssey brought her into contact with all the wonders and worries of this larger-than-life country. Highly entertaining, richly informative, TRAVELS IN A STRANGE STATE is a personal memoir of an improbable journey, revealing the United States as it is rarely seen – from the seat of a bicycle.
