Take the Stress Out of Holiday Light Decorating with This Brilliant Little Tool
Photo Illustration: Scouted/The Daily Beast/AmazonI have no idea what goes on in my attic between early January and mid-November, but whatever is happening up there, it’s not friendly to the Christmas lights. We use seven or eight strands of colored lights on the living (zombie?) tree we put up in the den each year and I tend to add two or three additional strands of white lights to the pre-lit artificial tree that goes up in the living room, so that’s at least ten strands I need each year.Yet without fail, despite all the lights working fine at the end of the season, there’s an attrition rate of about 25% at the start of the next season. One strand will be totally dead. Another is half-illuminated. A third flickers. Yet another may seem fine during initial testing, only to go dead when jostled ever so slightly. (We still use incandescent lights for our indoor holiday décor, for the record. Outside it’s all about LEDs because once those things are up, no way I’d ever climb around fixing strands if one went out.)So each year, I’m presented with one of three options: buy more strands of lights, check each and every bulb on the faulty strands by hand, or sell the house and move into a camper van endlessly rambling down forgotten blue highways out in the western states.Read more at The Daily Beast.

British Court Ruling on Puberty Blockers Stinks of Anti-Trans Cruelty
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast/Getty/APIf you are a trans child or if you’re the parent or carer of a trans kid, the last 24 hours have been traumatic. England’s High Court has ruled that children seeking puberty-blocking drugs will have to demonstrate a higher level of “Gillick competence”—maturity of thinking and understanding of consequences—than in any other comparable, non-trans circumstance. A court order will now be required before clinicians will be able to prescribe the life-saving drugs. The Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust, against whom the case was brought, told the BBC it was “disappointed,” but immediately suspended such referrals for under-16s.Trans children who have waited years for relief from the fear and pain of going through an unwanted puberty have a new and intimidatingly high hurdle to jump. If this smacks to you of discrimination, then that’s because it is. Worse still, it is a decision that stems from the judges swallowing one of the cruellest misinformation campaigns of modern British times.Read more at The Daily Beast.

The NFL Punted on COVID—Just Like Trump
Patrick Smith/GettyThe National Football League premiered Wednesday Afternoon Football on NBC at 3:40 p.m. yesterday when the Baltimore Ravens faced the Pittsburgh Steelers in a game that been postponed three times. The early kickoff was unfortunate but necessary to avoid a conflict with NBC’s broadcast of the annual lighting of the Christmas Tree at Rockefeller Center.It’s come to this: the mightiest of all leagues in the most lucrative of all sports upstaged by a Norway Spruce. The NFL has itself to blame. It tried to play away the virus, wishing it off the field like player’s kneeling during the National Anthem or an epidemic of concussions. But no back-office PR team is a match for COVID.Other leagues have managed better. Baseball shrunk its roster and schedule, banned high-fives, hugs, arguing, and spitting. Mid-season it tightened enforcement after the Miami Marlins suffered a serious outbreak and had a successful World Series. Golf postponed its iconic Masters Tournament until the fall, foregoing blooming magnolias and late sunsets that allowed more hours on the course but bestowing a green jacket on a winner. The National Basketball Association went all out, moving into a bubble in Orlando, isolated players and tested them constantly before crowning Lebron James’ Los Angeles Lakers champions to the roar of a virtual crowd.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Trump Exits Like He Entered—Throwing Mud and Dragging Us Down
Photo Illustration by Sarah Rogers/The Daily Beast/Photo via GettySo Donald Trump is intent on leaving Washington the way he arrived, slithering, blithering, blathering, blundering, a big frumious Bandersnatch snapping at everything in his path, taking his last few because-I-can bites out of the Constitution, and by the way not letting 1,500 American deaths every day deter him in the slightest from obsessively ironing out the kinks in that backswing.It’s a sickening sight, and it’s worse than that—for all the damage Trump has done to democracy and polity in the last 1,400-odd days, he threatens to do even more in his remaining 50-odd days, in at least four ways. Let us examine them.One with a bullet is his continued carrying on about “election fraud.” It’s impossible for us to gauge right now how much damage this is going to do to our democracy, because these things happen year by year, drip by drip. But he and the right-wing media have got something like seven in 10 Republicans to believe that this election wasn’t fair. It won’t take long for them to generalize that to every election—or at least every one that doesn’t turn out the way they want.Read more at The Daily Beast.

This Couple Went on a Mexico Vacation—and Wound Up in ICU
Courtesy of Jocelyn ArellanoWhat was supposed to be a relaxing beach vacation to southern Mexico turned into a nightmare when an older couple came down with COVID-19 last month. Now, their daughter is begging other travelers to stay put.“Even if you’re taking precautions… you don’t know what’s going to happen,” the daughter, Jocelyn Arellano, said. “And if you’re far from your family, from people you know, it’s a horrible experience.”Jose and Gloria Arellano purchased their tickets to Oaxaca in the beginning of the pandemic. By November, they had yet to use them—and they lost money every time they pushed off their travel. So on Nov. 11, just as Mexico’s cases spiked to their highest levels yet, they headed south from their home in Tijuana for what they hoped would be a relaxing two-week respite.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Biden’s Plan to Reunite Immigrant Families Is a Mystery for Now
PEDRO PARDO/AFP via GettyIn the closing days of the presidential campaign, Joe Biden pledged to make reuniting the hundreds of migrant children forcibly separated from their families under the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy a top priority of his new administration.But those who have dedicated much of the past two years to reuniting those children with their loved ones say that the continued challenges posed by President Donald Trump’s family separation policy are far more complicated than merely matching parents and children—and can only be truly addressed by the president-elect backing reforms that would allow parents who were deported without their kids to reunite on American soil.But since Biden’s pledge in the final days of the campaign to form a federal task force to reunite those children with their parents, the makeup of that task force, the resources allotted to it, and its specific plan of action has remained a relative mystery. The Biden transition has kept the planning for the task force, the members of which have not yet been announced, under wraps, and allies in the nonprofit sphere say they’re not sure that the scope of the task force will be enough to fix the damage of one of Trump’s most despised immigration policies.Read more at The Daily Beast.

GA Election Officials Wanted ‘Boring and Simple’ Instead They Get Death Threats
Photo Illustration by Sarah Rogers/The Daily Beast/Photo via GettyATLANTA—On a busy Wednesday morning, Gabriel Sterling—the de facto face of Georgia’s election system—was catching up on his emails when one message caught his eye. He did not recognize the sender, but their message was clear: his home address, followed by a winking face.For weeks, Sterling, the voting systems implementation manager for Georgia’s government, has come before the cameras daily to affirm the integrity of the state’s election in the face of attacks from President Trump and his supporters, who are outraged that President-elect Joe Biden won the state.That public service has earned him protection from local police outside his home in a quiet suburb of Atlanta. When a mysterious FedEx package recently showed up at his door, he turned it over to them; his next-door neighbor has angled his numerous security cameras toward Sterling’s home, just in case. On his neighborhood’s Facebook page, Sterling posted an apologetic note for the increased police presence and general air of tension.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Bill Barr Just Set a Time Bomb for President Biden
Doug Mills-Pool/GettyPresident Donald Trump falsely labeled Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of him a “witch hunt.” It wasn’t.If you want to see what a real political witch hunt looks like, just look to lame duck Attorney General slash personal fixer Bill Barr’s appointment this week of a special counsel meant to probe Joe Biden’s administration before it even begins.While Barr’s order appointing Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham as special counsel is focused on any crimes connected to the opening of the FBI’s investigation into Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign, you’re kidding yourself if you think it necessarily stops here. As a reminder, special prosecutor Kenneth Starr was appointed in August 1994 to investigate Clinton’s real estate dealings (“Whitewater”), well over a year before Clinton even met then White House intern Monica Lewinsky and we saw how that worked out.Read more at The Daily Beast.

The UFO Anti-Sex Cult That Preached Castration and Mass Suicide
HBO MaxDevoid of the mockery that greeted its subjects upon their mass suicide in March 1997 (the largest ever committed on U.S. soil), Heaven’s Gate: The Cult of Cults takes a comprehensive look at the infamous millenarian outfit in order to understand how they came to be, how they came to their fatal end—namely, with numerous adherents castrated and everyone overdosing on phenobarbital and vodka—and, more fundamentally, how such groups operate, both in terms of attracting and indoctrinating devotees. Director Clay Tweel’s four-part HBO Max docuseries (premiering Dec. 3) is thus the fascinating story of a truly out-there collective that sought salvation at the tail of the Hale-Bopp comet, as well as an incisive examination of cult dynamics.Although no matter the seriousness of its analysis, this non-fiction effort can’t fully change the fact that—courtesy of its own philosophy and behavior—Heaven’s Gate ultimately earned whatever ridicule and condemnation it received.The infamous cult was founded by music teacher Marshall Herff Applewhite and nurse Bonnie Nettles, who met in 1972 when the former was treated by the latter at a hospital (for what one interviewee contends was a “psychotic episode”). Together, they came to believe they were messiahs whose teachings could help people physically transform into aliens, at which point they’d be able to board a spaceship bound for heaven (known as “The Next Level”). Their scripture was a combination of New Age philosophy and New Testament dogma, and with many 1970s Americans seeking fulfillment from alternate “religions,” they quickly attracted a following. In 1975, they became brief national news when, in Waldport, Oregon, they convinced 20 attendees at one of their seminars to “vanish” along with them.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Trump 'Fraud' Witness Also Believes Ghosts Are Haunting His Family
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast / Photos via YoutubeTruck driver Jesse Morgan thrust himself into the middle of the post-2020 election drama on Tuesday when he claimed at a press conference that he had unwittingly driven a truck full of suspicious mail-in ballots from New York to Pennsylvania ahead of Election Day.“I know I saw ballots with return addresses filled out,” said Morgan, who claims to work for a Postal Service contractor. “Thousands of them, thousands.”The appearance at a voter fraud event hosted by the right-wing Thomas More Center turned Morgan into the latest viral star on the Trumpist right. And, soon enough, his claims were being amplified by the president, his legal team, conservative groups unaffiliated with the campaign, and Trump supporters themselves all of whom have argued that nearly 300,000 bogus mail-in ballots were used in Pennsylvania, Morgan’s home state, to put Joe Biden over the top.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Mads Mikkelsen on the Joys of Drinking and His Hunger for More ‘Hannibal’
Jeff Pachoud/AFP/GettyMads Mikkelsen has serious moves. That should come as little surprise to those who’ve seen his suave turns as James Bond’s bloody-teared nemesis in Casino Royale and as a dapper cannibal in NBC’s Hannibal. Yet the more dancer-like qualities of his work are often overshadowed by his imposing (if not outright menacing) screen presence—a situation thrillingly rectified by Another Round, Mikkelsen’s new collaboration with The Hunt director Thomas Vinterberg. As a high school teacher who along with three colleagues decides to invigorate his moribund life by maintaining a persistent alcohol buzz, the 54-year-old Danish actor is a dexterous wonder, bringing equal measures of empathetic gravity and humor to his everyman role. His Martin is a lost soul in the throes of a mid-life crisis and, eventually, a burgeoning booze dependency, and his saga culminates in an expressively electric musical number—all leaping, twirling, running euphoria—that stands as the finest scene of the cinematic year.Another Round’s showstopper not only allows Mikkelsen to utilize his considerable dance training—it demonstrates his charismatic versatility. Mikkelsen’s Martin is an ordinary protagonist on an extraordinarily sloshed journey of self-discovery, and the actor brings his plight to life with relatable inner turmoil and reckless abandon, resulting in one of 2020’s most subtle and moving performances. The stellar film proves that Mikkelsen remains completely comfortable operating in small, human-scaled endeavors, no matter the splash he’s made over the past decade in a variety of Hollywood blockbusters (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Doctor Strange) that have turned him into a hot franchise commodity. With rumors swirling that he was about to step into the newly departed shoes of Johnny Depp in the third Fantastic Beasts installment (the casting news was confirmed following our chat), and with Another Round destined for critical accolades when it premieres in theaters on Dec. 4 and on VOD on Dec. 18, we spoke with him about his impressive dance routine, collaborating with Vinterberg, Denmark’s drinking culture, and more.Let’s begin at the end of Another Round, with your amazing dance number. Did you prep your moves ahead of time, or were they improvised?Read more at The Daily Beast.
