    A US judge has approved a $41m (Β£25m) settlement between New York City and five men wrongfully convicted of the rape of a woman jogger in 1989.

    The five, all black or Hispanic teenagers at the time, confessed to the attack in Central Park after interrogation, but later recanted.

    They served prison terms ranging from seven to 13 years, before their exoneration in 2002.

    New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said the settlement was “long overdue”.

    Details of the deal had been reported in June but were publicly disclosed for the first time on Friday when US Magistrate Judge Ronald Ellis in New York approved the deal.

    OMG—I just sat through the extreme ODS of Andrea Mitchell telling Rachel a series of lies that as an aggregate are stunning.

    First, the Iran/US talks are stalled—-Not what the Iranians are saying.
    Next, the President won’t do anything on immigration before the mid-terms because red-state dems, blah blah something
    Then the ridiculous statement that today was a bad day for POTUS.
    It is Opposite Day in Mitchell-Land.

      She is such a detriment to journalism, absolutely hate that @maddow fawns all over her (like she did with Nicole Wallace — but at least Wallace came up with a memorable line — I think about Sarah Palin — coocoo for cocoa puffs).

      She definitely needs to retire — probably hates spending time at home with her awful Ayn Rand-loving husband.

        Get this. Mitchell will be a regular on the new Chuck Todd “Meet The Press”. I’ll sure she will play the Peggie Noonan role. Joe Scarborough will also be a regular. Apparently MTP wasn’t right wing enough.

      Vicki–I commend you for intestinal fortitude. I can … not… stand to hear or watch Andrea Mitchell. It is long past the time when her bitter, partisan self needs to retire and spend her millions.

      Instead of saying there was another month of job growth, NPR took a negative spin that the job growth did not meet the experts prediction.

      Mitchell is married to Alan Greenspan. You can’t be more “establishment elite” than that. The “elite” hates President Obama. Plain and simple. They have such contempt for him. He doesn’t bow to them, he’s never paid “dues” to them. Barack Obama’s first loyalty is to ordinary americans, He is not the puppet of Corporate America; he is not the puppet of the military-industrial-complex.

      Boy, they just can’t wait for him to get out of the Oval Office, so they can return to “normal”. When the Washington Elite has complete access to the White House. When the one in the Oval office regularly seeks, and follows, their advice. When the one in the Oval office takes good care of their interests.

      President Obama has never, ever been one of them. And never will be. He’s a man of the people. And they know it. They’ve worked tirelessly to limit his power. Because deep down, they’re afraid of him. A man of his stature and charisma can change the world. And they don’t want anything to change.

    Photo-sharing company Twitpic is to close over a trademark dispute with one of its earliest collaborators, Twitter.

    Twitpic, which was launched in 2008, said the social network had demanded it drop an application for a trademark.

    If not, the photo-sharing firm would have been denied access to data that allowed it to develop for the Twitter platform.

    Twitter said it was sad that the firm was shutting down, and that Twitpic could have continued to use its name.

    The photo-sharing firm gained a loyal following after its 2008 launch. The company built its third-party service for use on Twitter’s platform, and was developed to allow people to post and share pictures on the social network.

    Twitter has since added its own photo-sharing feature.

    I have no idea what it means, so stop asking me questions.

    On that tweet I posted on the previous thread, I got the following response:

    I tweeted back that I won’t refer to it as ISIS again, but will use ISIL, as that or IS is actually what they call themselves now.

      I’ve seen comments here that make it clear that Richard Engel is not universally loved by TODville, but IMO he did an excellent job explaining the ISIL/ISIS crisis and why it’s so dangerous to unilaterally dismantle ISIS… think power vacuum, what happened in Iraq after Saddam was deposed.

      This is from August 27 and is part 2 of a single segment, so it awkwardly begins with the doomed plea from the mother of Steven Sotloff for mercy.

      Thank you Chips!

      Love the Stonehenge videos.

      About 10 years ago I saw a documentary on Stonehenge at a friend’s house — think it might have been PBS, but may be wrong about that.

      The POV of this man was that the way the lateral rocks are placed was based on the monthly lunar cycle — the dramatic placement for solar displays at the solitices was important, but leaves some questions unanswered.

      I know nothing about Druids/Celts or archaeology, but I found the theory fascinating — haven’t heard anything more about that theory, though. 😦

      Oh my goodness he looks so excited, so happy, so … free ! One of the most endearing videos I’ve seen of him.

      One of my former coworkers was a mom to three boys too (no girls).

      Her boys were a bit older, and she loved being treated like a Queen by her family, LOL.

    I almost tweeted this vicious comment …

    “Oh I thought I heard … oh never mind it was Joan Rivers.”

    … in response to that vicious Peggy Noonan tweet. But why stoop to her level?

    The teacher of the earth science class was lecturing on map reading.

    After explaining about latitude, longitude, degrees and minutes the teacher asked, “Suppose I asked you to meet me for lunch at 23 degrees, 4 minutes north latitude and 45 degrees, 15 minutes east longitude?”

    After a confused silence, a voice volunteered, “I guess you’d be eating alone.”
