Mets’ Taijuan Walker rebounds after whistling flap, but annoyed by early hook

No longer appearing to be tipping his pitches — or hearing whistles from the visiting dugout — Taijuan Walker delivered a bounce-back performance Friday night. The only thing that left him bothered was an early hook, not what his opponent may or may not have been doing, in the Mets’ 4-3 loss to the Phillies...

The Man Behind Erdogan’s Worst Spat With the West
President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is leading Turkey toward its biggest showdown with key Western allies since he assumed power two decades ago. At the heart of the row is a joint call on Turkey by ambassadors from 10 countries -- including the U.S. and Germany -- to free Osman Kavala, a 65-year-old businessman and philanthropist sent to jail four years ago, when Erdogan’s allies began accusing him of conspiring to overthrow the president. Kavala denies the accusations. Erdogan says the call for his

Four Years After Deadly Rally, Charlottesville Nazis Are Headed to Court
Shay Horse/NurPhoto via Getty ImagesIn the four years since Charlottesville, Virginia residents filed a sprawling lawsuit against some of the nation’s most prominent white supremacists, two of those defendants have gone missing. Others have served jail time, paid hefty sanctions, or seen their far-right groups dissolved under pressure of the lawsuit.On Monday, the case is finally going to trial.The case, Sines v. Kessler, takes aim at the organizers of Unite The Right, the deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia. The two-day rally began with a torchlit march, during which white supremacists assaulted counter-demonstrators, and concluded with neo-Nazi James Fields Jr. driving his car into a crowd of protesters, murdering one and injuring dozens more. Survivors of the attacks were left with lasting injuries and emotional distress. Sines v. Kessler, which represents nine survivors, argues that event organizers planned for violence. And after four years of dramatic pre-trial developments, the plaintiffs are finally going to make their case.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Living to 150 May Be Possible. But Is Society Ready for It?
Getty ImagesJay Olshansky, 67, once attended a party where he was one of the youngest people in the room. The party was for “SuperAgers”, people over the age of 80 that have the cognitive abilities of someone 30 years younger, as part of an ongoing research study. Olshansky, a professor at the Center on Aging at the University of Chicago, felt lucky to be in the rarified presence of the 1 percent of our population whose cognitive abilities do not deteriorate with age.“When I sat around the table with them, if I closed my eyes I could’ve been at a roundtable with a bunch of CEOs of major companies,” Olshanksky told The Daily Beast. “They were that sharp. Their age was completely irrelevant.”The SuperAgers study, run by the Mesulam Center for Cognitive Neurology and Alzheimer’s Disease at Northwestern University, is part of an emerging body of new research on aging and what a world where we live longer and healthier might look like. Back in the 1500s, humans used to have a life expectancy of 30. Now, life expectancy is about 77, and it might be increasing from there. One May 2021 study in Nature estimated that humans could live until 150. A September 2021 study in Royal Society Open Science journal said there is no upper limit. Other studies say nanotechnology can delay death—in some estimates, by beyond 100 years.Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip? Send it to The Daily Beast here
Why Is Dressing for Fall So Damn Hard?
Photo Illustration by Kristen Hazzard/The Daily Beast/GettyBianca Arlia, a 22-year-old from Rhode Island, cites Rihanna and Bella Hadid as her two “biggest inspirations” when it comes to fall dressing. “No one is doing street style like them,” Arlia, who works in retail, said. “Whether they’re dressing casually or going out, they always look so effortlessly cool.”She’d love to channel their layering prowess, whether it’s Rihanna in a marabou-lined mini skirt and sweatshirt slung over a black bra, or Hadid looking very Matrix-y in black leather flares and a quilted black jacket. But most of the time, Arlia conjures another unexpected autumnal influencer: midlife crisis-era Adam Sandler.“I always get so excited to dress during fall,” Arlia explained. “I love it all, from cozy knit to pleather to flannels to faux fur. The reality is that most days I end up looking like Adam Sandler. Sometimes it’s just way too cold to care what you look like and he really gets that. Even though he’s worth tens of millions of dollars he dresses just like the rest of us.”Read more at The Daily Beast.
How Crossword Puzzles Help You Island Hop from the Comfort of Your Couch
Rebecca TulisYou'll find lots of islands in crossword puzzles, and we had a bunch of them this week: Brooklyn's CONEY Island on Monday, Spain's IBIZA on Wednesday, Florida's Key LARGO on Thursday, and an 8-letter Caribbean island on Sunday (which I won't mention here in case you haven't solved it yet).Why so many islands in puzzle grids? Because there are so many around the globe, often with short, vowel-rich names, and these names tend to come from many different languages, which gives unusual (for English) letter combinations that are highly useful for puzzle writers.Taking a quick global tour: Hawaii alone gives us very handy MAUI, LANAI, KAUAI and OAHU, and the Pacific also yields GUAM, FIJI, and the island nations of TONGA and SAMOA.Read more at The Daily Beast.
“Pour One Up, Pour One Out” with T-Pain and His Favorite Drinks
Olivia McGiffGiven that T-Pain’s biggest hit song is “Buy U A Drank,” it’s not surprising that he has a favorite drink himself. What is surprising is how simple it is to make.“It’s literally just straight tequila—not going to lie,” he admits. “I like my drinks to not be work. If this just came already chilled, I’d probably just drink it out the bottle.” Though it’s not complicated, it can’t be made with just any tequila or served in just any glass. The Grammy Award-winning musician has specific requirements for every aspect of his signature beverage. He typically makes it after his kids are settled in for the night, when he retires to the music and podcasting studio in the basement of his Atlanta home. “It’s my chill-out thing,” he says. “It makes me so happy.”T-Pain will soon let the world know all of his thoughts on the subject of cocktails with the release of his book Can I Mix You a Drink?, which he wrote with top bartender Maxwell Britten.Read more at The Daily Beast.
