Adrien Brody: aActors are attention seekers. But Iam an introverta
From https:

Adrien Brody could have been a magician, and now heas rediscovering his passion for painting. But with a dizzying array of major roles and a new Wes Anderson film coming out, the Oscar-winner explains why this is very much aa special timea

Roughly a year after Adrien Brody became the youngest recipient of the Academy Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role, he sat for an interview and a aglammed-upa photo shoot for the August 2004 issue of Details magazine, the now-defunct menas publication. The cover shows Brody wearing a white T-shirt, athe perfect all-American looka, leaning backwards with both hands behind his head and meeting the camera with a gaze both remote and charged. Also on the cover, in all caps: aADRIEN BRODY LOVES BEING FAMOUS.a Brody never said he loved being famous. It was not something head ever expressed. Not only was the coverline incongruous to who he was, but as an actor whoad only recently climbed into the industryas highest level of visibility, he was still digesting the ways his life would change as a public figure. aI was so shocked by it,a he says now, over breakfast at the Whitby Hotel in New York. aIt was so flippant. It justa|a He hesitates, as if debating whether to complete the thought, because he is otherwise unfailingly polite. aIt made me look like a dick.a

Brody is once again sitting for a cover story. Heas come straight from Good Morning America, the popular breakfast TV show, and is still wearing amake-believe clothesa lent by a stylist: a white button-up and a smart black over-shirt. His appearance this morning had gone well: aQuick and painless. It was literally two minutes. I mean, itas a whole to-do, and then youare on, thinking aI hope I donat blow it!a And theyare, like, aGood morning!a And Iam, like, aHello!a And then theyare like, aGoodbyea, and then Iam like, aI love you, thank you!aa Because the show had run smoothly, his publicist had texted me to say head be early for our appointment. I arrived early, too, and through the hotel window I could see him pacing the pavement in a leisurely manner with a phone pressed to his ear, enjoying a conversation. He was talking to his father. When he breezed in minutes later a 6ft tall, a spring in his step a he smiled in an avuncular sort of way, and told his dad he had to go, that he was headed into a meeting, and that he loved him.

Health officials in the US are concerned about how to divert key resources to combatting a rise in sexually-transmitted infections (STI) that is now continuing despite the social restrictions of the coronavirus pandemic and is now in its sixth consecutive year of increase.

America has continually combatted rising STI rates pre-pandemic, one of many poor public health outcomes in the US, despite massive spending on healthcare. But, following an artificial dip in STI rates during the Covid-19 pandemic, STI rates are now on the rise again while health funding is still being allocated to address the pandemic.

Lethal aforever chemicalsa taint our food, water and even blood. The EPA is stalling | David Bond
From https:

There is no longer any population or place on earth untouched by PFAS contamination. We are living through a toxic experiment with no control group

This week the EPA announced a new roadmap to research, restrict, and remediate PFAS a a group of industrial aforever chemicalsa that have been linked to cancer and are found in our food, water, and even our blood. President Biden is requesting $10bn in the infrastructure bill to address PFAS. But this new attention still falls short of whatas required to confront an unprecedented crisis that affects the health of the entire United States and countless people across the world.

Today, toxic per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are everywhere weave thought to look for them. As engineered, these synthetic chemicals glide through air and water with ease, evade all natural processes of decay, and inflict debilitating injuries even at exceedingly low levels of exposure. The petrochemical industry has its fingerprints all over the ubiquity of PFAS, yet that very ubiquity is now being used as an excuse against doing anything about it. PFAS are becoming too toxic to fail.

Why is the idea of agendera provoking backlash the world over? | Judith Butler
From https:

Increasingly, authoritarians are likening agenderisma to acommunisma and atotalitarianisma

In June, the Hungarian parliament voted overwhelmingly to eliminate from public schools all teaching related to ahomosexuality and gender changea, associating LGBTQI rights and education with pedophilia and totalitarian cultural politics. In late May, Danish MPs passed a resolution against aexcessive activisma in academic research environments, including gender studies, race theory, postcolonial and immigration studies in their list of culprits. In December 2020, the supreme court in Romania struck down a law that would have forbidden the teaching of agender identity theorya but the debate there rages on. Trans-free spaces in Poland have been declared by transphobes eager to purify Poland of corrosive cultural influences from the US and the UK. Turkeyas withdrawal from the Istanbul convention in March sent shudders through the EU, since one of its main objections was the inclusion of protections for women and children against violence, and this aproblema was linked to the foreign word, agendera.

The attacks on so-called agender ideologya have grown in recent years throughout the world, dominating public debate stoked by electronic networks and backed by extensive rightwing Catholic and evangelical organizations. Although not always in accord, these groups concur that the traditional family is under attack, that children in the classroom are being indoctrinated to become homosexuals, and that agendera is a dangerous, if not diabolical, ideology threatening to destroy families, local cultures, civilization, and even amana himself.
