New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly appeared on both ABC’s “This Week” and NBC’s “Meet the Press” to continue his defense of stop-and-frisk, following the landmark federal ruling that the NYPD tactic was unconstitutional and racially discriminatory.

Kelly maintained that the practice was valid, as violence primarily takes place in “minority neighborhoods”(this, despite the fact that of 5 million stops in New York in recent years, 86 percent led to no arrest, let alone conviction.)

NAACP President Ben Jealous responded to Kelly’s comments, noting that it should “send chills down the spine of everyone in this country” if a police force must habitually violate the constitution to make us safer. Trayvon Martin’s parents appeared and back up Jealous’ comments:

As noted here earlier, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., told “Fox News Sunday” that the NSA’s surveillance programs were “unconstitutional” and could be beyond improvement by congressional oversight. Ever-hawkish GOP Rep. Peter King, R-NY, lashed back at Paul on the same show. “That was just a grab bag of misinformation and distortion,” King said, in defense of the dragnets:

RNC Chair Reince Priebus defended his party’s decision to boycott both CNN and NBC from hosting 2016 GOP primary debates. Earlier this week former Romney adviser Eric Fehrnstrom criticized the decision on Twitter, commenting, “Attacking the media is a loser’s game.”

Priebus hit back at on “This Week” Fehrnstrom by mocking him with a 2012 election throw back.

“Well, I don’t know if his Etch A Sketch is on tilt. … I’m not really taking advice from Eric Fehrnstrom right now,” Priebus said.

    On a weekend trip to buffalo from Toronto we made a pit stop at Niagara Falls on the Canadian side. I took this shot with my nexus 5 smartphone. I was randomly shooting the falls themselves from different viewpoints when I happened to get a pretty lucky and interesting shot of this lone seagull on patrol over the falls. I didn't even realize I had captured it in the shot until I went back through the photos a few days later

    Lucky timing! The oxpecker was originally sitting on hippo's head. I could see the hippo was going into a huge yawn (threat display?) and the oxpecker had to vacate it's perch. When I snapped the pic, the oxpecker appeared on the verge of being inhaled and was perfectly positioned between the massive gaping jaws of the hippo. The oxpecker also appears to be screeching in terror and back-pedaling to avoid being a snack!

    This wave is situated right near the CBD of Sydney. Some describe it as the most dangerous wave in Australia, due to it breaking on barnacle covered rocks only a few feet deep and only ten metres from the cliff face. If you fall off you could find yourself in a life and death situation. This photo was taken 300 feet directly above the wave from a helicopter, just as the surfer is pulling into the lip of the barrel.
