From https:

The office of Kentuckyas governor, Andy Beshear, has shared emails confirming that Joe Biden intended to nominate Chad Meredith, a conservative lawyer who has previously defended anti-abortion legislation, to a federal judgeship.

Reports of Meredithas potential nomination have sparked outrage among progressives and abortion rights advocates, even as the White House has dodged questions about the matter. Biden is already seen by some as not taking a strong enough lead on defending abortion rights.

aIt shattered my worlda: an Ohio soccer coach, sexual misconduct and the system that has protected him
From https:

Exclusive: The Guardian can reveal for the first time the circumstances behind Brad Evansa sudden exit as University of Toledo soccer coach, how the school managed reports about his behavior, and how he has still been allowed to hold prominent positions within the game in the US

Candice Fabry finished training with the under-nine girls team she coached and drove to El Camino Real, a restaurant in Toledo, Ohio. Fabry knew the restaurant from her time as a player with the University of Toledo womenas soccer team. Players would often go there and, according to a team joke, the restaurant didnat necessarily have the best margaritas in Toledo but it definitely had athe most-knowna.

It was July 2007, and Fabry was planning to meet University of Toledo womenas soccer coach Brad Evans and his wife at El Camino Real a as well as the teamas assistant coach Jennifer Whipple. Fabry had previously played for four years on the University of Toledo womenas soccer team, who compete in the Mid-American Conference.

On my way to the bathroom, I saw Brad in the hallway and he grabbed me into a side room, began kissing me and was attempting to put his hands down my pants. I froze for a moment unsure of what was happening, but then quickly pushed him back with both hands and started screaming ano, no, noa.

Candace [sic]

I wanted to confirm that I have received your email. Iam not able to make any comment on it at this timea|.

UToledo did conduct an investigation following a report by a student-athlete in January 2015 of verbal harassment by Brad Evans, who was at the time the Head Coach of the womenas soccer team. The investigation did find that Mr. Evansa conduct toward student-athletes may have violated the Universityas Standards of Conduct policy, however, the case was not referred for possible disciplinary action because by the conclusion of the investigation in March 2015, Mr. Evans had already resigned his position effective Feb. 23, 2015.

Brad Evans did not respond to multiple requests for an interview or emailed questions regarding specific allegations contained in this story. He did provide a statement by to the Guardian about his departure from the University of Toledo:

In 2015 I was asked to answer questions about my relationships with some past co-workers. It was clear that my interactions with those co-workers demonstrated poor judgment on my part, and were against university policy, and resigning was best for all involved.

With the help of counseling, I have learned a lot about the causes of my behavior. I am extremely lucky to have the support of my wife in this process. Together, I continue to learn to become a better person.

Two hours of sitting in your car going nowhere: New Yorkas unique parking rules are back
From https:

After a pandemic pause, alternate side parking returns to New York City with campaigners hoping it will mean cleaner streets

New York City is known for being one of the most difficult cities in the world to own a car a and a return to pre-pandemic parking restrictions could make it even more discouraging. Starting on Tuesday, drivers who park outside will have to move their cars two or three times a week for street cleaners, up from once a week during the pandemic.

This unique dance is called alternate side parking. Under these rules, drivers are allowed to park on many of New Yorkas streets free of charge, except during marked hours when a sanitation truck drives through to clear debris with a mechanical broom. Each side of a street has different cleaning hours, so that cars can move from one side to the other. Failing to move your car gets you a $65 ticket.

Conjuring Kesha: the pop staras ghost-hunting show is a bizarre blast
From https:

Kesha and her celebrity friends search for the paranormal in a ridiculously stupid and ridiculously entertaining new series

For the most part, investigative paranormal shows leave me totally cold. Almost without exception they consist of people in a room, in the dark, performatively overcompensating to clanks. If you have seen one episode of any investigative paranormal show, you have seen every episode of every investigative paranormal show, and anything more than that is overkill.

And then I saw Conjuring Kesha and completely changed my mind. As you may have already grasped, Conjuring Kesha is an investigative paranormal show that happens to star Kesha, the famous pop star. And that means it is, by some degree, much better than anything else the genre has ever produced.

Is it possible to be a mother and pursue a creative life? Yes, but it is never easy | Sophie Brickman
From https:

A new book explores how pregnancy and motherhood affected the lives of artists including Audre Lorde and Susan Sontag. At our current moment, the questions it raises take on additional urgency

When Susan Sontag had an abortion in the early 1950s, the abortion providers used no anesthetic and had to turn up the radio to smother her screams. When Audre Lorde had breakup sex with her boyfriend and later realized shead gotten pregnant, she cobbled together two weeksa pay and gave it to a nurse for a painful and terrifying procedure that she later wrote awas a kind of shift from safety towards self-preservationa. When Ursula Le Guin got pregnant by her Harvard boyfriend, who had assured her that you didnat need to use a condom the second time in a night, her progressive parents paid what amounted to a full yearas tuition at Radcliffe to get her a professional, safe and clean abortion, one she didnat speak about for decades. And Alice Walker opted for illegal abortion because, in the unsparing words of biographer Julie Phillips, aher alternative was suicidea.

aReproductive rights a including access to abortion, contraception, fertility treatment and healthcare a are a necessary part of creative mothering,a Phillips writes in her illuminating new book, The Baby on the Fire Escape: Creativity, Motherhood, and the Mind-Baby Problem, which features the stories of all of these creative women, and more, in a quest to understand that overlap in the Venn diagram of motherhood and creativity. aAll of them saw control over the timing and material circumstances of their pregnancies, whether they were able to achieve it or not, as essential to the practice of their art.a

Punchline: celebrating artists who use humor in their work
From https:

In opposition to the overly serious art world, a new group exhibition brings together artists who lean into the lighter side

aThe people who are the funniest in my life are also the best artists,a curator Yng-Ru Chen told me while discussing her newest show, Punchline, which is taking over Jane Lombard Galleryas Tribeca space from 7 July to 12 August. Existing in the overlap between art and humor, Punchline showcases 11 artists who use a range of approaches to the comedic to imbue their work with memorable twists, personality, authenticity and something a little different.

Chen conceived of the show both as a way to lean into the lighter atmosphere of the summer months, as well as a much-needed departure from the trauma of the Covid years. Eager to create something fun and inclusive, she started with the Guerrilla Girls, an anonymous group of female artists who since 1985 have made a practice of upstaging the art scene with edgy, attention-grabbing feminist political art. Chen told me that, aThey were really the originators of using humor to make a point artistically when the patriarchy and mainstream society did not see the importance of what they were trying to say.a

Girl in the Picture review a the scale of the true-crime monstrosity will leave you reeling
From https:

The awful revelations in Skye Borgmanas documentary about a seeming hit-and-run are utterly staggering a yet it still treats the victims with a rare sensitivity

Girl in the Picture, Netflixas new true crime documentary, is a challenge to director Skye Borgmanas own crown. In 2017, she made Abducted in Plain Sight, an account of the long-term abuse and kidnapping, not once but twice, of Jan Broberg by her parentsa friend and neighbour Robert Berchtold. In a crowded field, the bizarreness of the almost-incredible tale still stood out. If it had been a novel, you would have thrown the book aside as the work of a fool in a fever dream.

But the story behind Girl in the Picture is, if anything, even sadder and stranger, as it traces the deepening mystery behind an apparently simple hit-and-run case. In Oklahoma, a 20-year-old woman is found, groceries scattered about her, by the side of a road, and dies of her injuries a which, it is noted by staff, are quite unlike those you would expect to find on a car accident victim a in hospital soon after. Her much older husband, Clarence, is under suspicion, and their two-year-old son Michael is placed with a foster family. The deceased is identified as Tonya Hughes and her mother is called. When she answers, she tells them her daughter died as a toddler.

aLetas leave the city! Letas get a dog! Letas get a divorce!a Do we regret our pandemic life changes?
From https:

Lockdowns, illness and working from home convinced millions it was time to shake things up. But did they follow through a and did it make them happier?

There was a lot of big talk during the pandemic as we used that eerie combination of silence and panic to re-evaluate our priorities. Fear of change evaporates when everywhere you look there is upheaval you didnat choose. Why not do that thing you have always wanted to do, chuck in your job or get an iguana? Practically speaking, it was a new world, in which life in the city was all downside and no up. Suddenly, the relationships you thought would endure till death parted you wouldnat last five more minutes; at the same time, the person you met on Wednesday was now living with you. The pointlessness of your job leapt out at you, but was it the work itself, or just a proxy for modern life?

Especially in 2020, this all looked as though it was going to bring about huge life changes. By August of that year, one in seven Londoners wanted to leave the city. Nationally, four in 10 people were more inclined to look for houses in rural locations than they were before Covid. Developers in Manchester, Leeds and Liverpool were panicking. In early 2021, one estate agent noted the alargest exodus out of London in a generationa.

The US supreme court is turning the constitution into a suicide pact | Lawrence Douglas
From https:

The constitution is being used to destroy the very democratic governance that it was designed to protect

To paraphrase the great US supreme court justice Robert H Jackson, the US constitution should not be read as a suicide pact. That seemingly obvious bit of wisdom appears lost on the present court. Over the course of the past week, the court handed down three landmark decisions, each disastrous in its own right. But taken together they reveal a dangerously hidebound court intent on turning the constitution into an instrument of obstruction, a formidable obstacle to solving some of the nationas most pressing problems.

First, in New York State Rifle v Bruen, the court, by a 6-3 vote, struck down a New York law that required a person demonstrate aproper causea to carry a concealed handgun. The Sullivan law had been on the books for over a century without running afoul of the constitution. Indeed, between 1791 and 2008, the supreme court had never struck down a government gun regulation, presumably because as Warren Burger, the conservative chief justice appointed by Richard Nixon once observed, the idea that the second amendment creates a personal right to gun ownership is aone of the greatest pieces of fraud a I repeat the word afrauda a on the American public by special interest groups that I have ever seen in my lifetimea.

Itas democracy v plutocracy a this is the endgame for our planet | George Monbiot
From https:

The US supreme court is helping to destroy our climate. But it was a much smaller decision, closer to home, that was the final straw for me

It feels like the end game. In the US last week, the third perverse and highly partisan supreme court decision in a few days made American efforts to prevent climate breakdown almost impossible. Ruling in favour of the state of West Virginia, the court decided that the Environmental Protection Agency is not entitled to restrict carbon dioxide emissions from power stations.

The day before, in the UK, the governmentas climate change committee reported a ashockinga failure by Boris Johnsonas administration to meet its climate targets. So stupid and perverse are its policies on issues such as energy saving that itas hard to see this as anything other than failure by design. On the day of the supreme court ruling, the UK government also announced that it intended to scrap the law protecting the UKas most important wildlife sites.

Worried about abortion and demonic possession? Youad make a great Republican politician | Arwa Mahdawi
From https:

Just when you think youave plumbed the depths of delusion and bigotry, another stalwart of the GOP proves you wrong. Astounding work, Kristina Karamo, Scott Neely and Karianne Lisonbee

Have you mislaid a few brain cells? Do you have increasingly bizarre delusions? Are you completely befuddled about how the female body works? Well, congratulations! You have what it takes to forge a successful career as a Republican politician. Anyone watching recent events unfold would be forgiven for thinking the main skills required for a job in Republican politics appear to be extreme bigotry combined with a knack for saying whatever outlandish thing comes into your head first.

Even so, there are still times when Republican politicians can surprise you with the depths of their inanity. Let me introduce you, for example, to Scott Neely, who is running for the Republican nomination for governor of Arizona. During a televised debate last week Neely discussed an Arizona abortion ban by invoking aliens. aIf we found life on Mars, wouldnat we do everything in our power to protect that life?a Neely asked. aWhy canat we treat human life the same way we would treat alien life?a
