Trevor Noah Takes Down Senate's 'Odious' Trumpcare Plans

The Senate version of Trumpcare was finally unwrapped after weeks of secret talks, “like an odious, festering Christmas package it turns out no one wants,” Trevor Noah declared on “The Daily Show.”
Some — apparently, even President Donald Trump ― may have been hoping for a Senate bill that isn’t as “mean” as the House’s version, but Noah uses a raunchy analogy to explain why the Senate version is actually worse.
While the House bill was “like a rapper ― it was going to screw people hard and fast,” the Senate bill, which makes even deeper cuts to Medicaid, is “like Barry White ― it’s gonna go slower, but so much deeper, baby,” he quips.
In exchange, the bill will fund a tax cut for the rich. “It’s like a fireman running into a burning building and saving the fire instead of the baby,” Noah says.
On the plus side, the “the Daily Show” host noted, the plan is “massively unpopular” across America, including in regions that supported Trump, where many currently rely on Obamacare or Medicaid. I…

Gorilla Dances To 'Maniac' And Another 'Flashdance' Star Is Born

Zola the gorilla has become a viral hit for his twirling moves in a tub at the Dallas Zoo.
But there was something missing ― “Flashdance,” the 1983 film featuring Jennifer Beals as a steel mill worker who tries to prove her worth as a dancer.
And CBS DFW obliged by adding the movie’s smash-hit song “What A Feeling” by Irene Cara as a soundtrack to the zoo video, above.
But the CBS affiliate wasn’t the only one. Below, our favorite, a Twitter user went with Michael Sembello’s “Maniac.”

Mayors Could Shift Nearly 42 Percent Of U.S. Electricity To Renewables By 2025

The country’s largest coalition of cities plans to vote this weekend on a pledge to make 100 percent renewable power a top policy priority over the next decade.
The resolution by the U.S. Conference of Mayors ― who represent a 148 million people and 41.8 percent of the country’s electricity use ― would be the broadest rejection of President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate agreement. If each of the federation’s 1,481 cities actually converted to zero-emissions electricity before 2025, U.S. emissions of planet-warming gases would fall by 619 million metric tons, according to a Sierra Club analysis shared exclusively with HuffPost.
That’s equal to the total combined carbon footprint of the five worst states emitting greenhouse gases: Texas, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Florida and Ohio.
“The more cities that not only pledge to move to 100 percent renewable energy but pass that into a local law or ordinance and begin to work on that transition,” Jodie V…

Sonequa Martin-Green Of 'Star Trek: Discovery' Shuts Down Racist Trolls

Beam her up to hero status.
Star Trek: Discovery” actor Sonequa Martin-Green ― the first black woman to be the lead in the franchise ― proved racist trolls wrong on Thursday, as she praised the universal appeal of “Star Trek” and pointed out its yearslong diversity.
The New Yorker last month reported on the ugly backlash to the new “Star Trek” show’s trailer, featuring Martin-Green as the lieutenant commander and Michelle Yeoh as the Starfleet captain. Some commenters decried the lack of an alpha male in charge, the magazine wrote, calling it a fear of “white genocide.”
But Martin-Green had the perfect advice for bigots.
“I would encourage them to key into the essence and spirit of ‘Star Trek’ that has made it the legacy it is — and that’s looking across the way to the person sitting in front of you and realizing you are the same, that they are not separate from you, and we are all one,” she told Entertainment Weekly on Thursday. “That’s something ‘Star Trek’ has always upheld and I comp…

Boeing Factory In South Carolina Where Trump 'Celebrated' Jobs Braces For Layoffs

President Donald Trump proclaimed while visiting a Boeing plant in South Carolina in February that he was there “to celebrate jobs.”
“Jobs is oneof the primary reasons I’m standing here today as your president and I will never, ever disappoint you” he told the crowd in North Charleston that day. “Believe me, I will not disappoint you.”
On Thursday, Boeing confirmed that it would be laying off workers at the very plant where Trump had spoken so reassuringly five months ago. The aerospace company told CNNMoney that about 200 jobs at its facilities in South Carolina would be cut.

The SC Boeing plant where Trump gave a speech promising to protect US jobs says it's laying off about 200 workers https://t.co/3Q7uwVqRbXpic.twitter.com/32lF58i6Vf — CNN (@CNN) June 23, 2017

Affogato Recipes, Because Espresso Should Come With A Scoop Of Ice Cream

Italy has a great many culinary achievements to be proud of ― the wine, the cheese, the pasta ― but we think Italians’ real genius in the kitchen is best exemplified with the simple affogato.
For those of you new to this espresso-based dessert, an affogato is a scoop of vanilla ice cream with a shot of espresso poured on top. The ice cream is “drowned” in the espresso ―  affogato is the Italian word for drowned ― and it is the perfect pairing of two of our favorite things. 
Vanilla ice cream and espresso is the classic flavor duo, but there are a lot of twists on this combo, of course. We gathered together all the interesting affogatos we could find. (One of them even uses cold brew in place of espresso.) See for yourself:
