John Garvin "Johnny" Weir (born July 2, 1984) is an American figure skater. He is the 2008 World bronze medalist, a two-time Grand Prix Final bronze medalist, the 2001 World Junior Champion, and a three-time U.S. national champion (2004–2006).
July 27, 1972 - September 7, 1972
Dean Martin Presents: The Bobby Darin Amusement Company premiered on NBC at 10:00pm EDT on Thursday July 27, 1972. It was a variety hour that co-producers Saul Illson and Ernest Chambers described as "a comedy show with music."
The supporting cast featured Geoff Edwards (later of The New Treasure Hunt), comedian Rip Taylor, Richard Bakalyan (who was featured with Bobby in the movie Pressure Point) and Steve Landesberg (Barney Miller).
Some of the many characters that appeared on the program included Bobby's Groucho impression; the "Godmother," in which Darin was dressed in drag and interviewed by Geoff Edwards; and "Dusty John Dustin," a hippie poet backed by his drummer Tommy Amato on bongos. Some of other characters on the program were Landesberg's psychiatrist role, in which he comically analyzed Bobby every week; and "Skyway Silverman," a helicopter pilot portrayed by Rip Taylor. One weekly segment, "The Neighborhood" was a popular and significant part of the show, featuring Bobby and Bakalyan as two friends sitting on the front porch stoop of their old Italian neighborhood.
Bobby also showed off his muscial talents that summer too. Backed by his band (which included Terry Kellman, Tommy Amato and Bobby Rosario,) Mr. Darin sang many songs such as "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You," "Charade," "That's All," "Artifical Flowers," "Talk to the Animals," and "Work Song."
Each week during the summer series, Bobby had different guest stars ranging from Burt Reynolds to George Burns to Joan Rivers to Mimi Hines. He also had musical guests including Bobbie Gentry, Dusty Springfield, Dionne Warwick and Debbie Reynolds.
Darin's summer series became the highest rated summer replacement show on NBC and received overall good reviews. It returned to the air the following January.

The ultimate B-movie body, Buster Crabbe was an Olympic hero who played not only "Tarzan" but "Buck Rogers" and "Flash Gordon" (his most famous role), too, in movies and serials of the '30s and '40s. When Richard Lamparski, he of the Whatever Became Of...? book series, approached Crabbe in the '60s about speaking of his movie career, the semi-retired star was flabbergasted that anyone would care. But how could his fans be expected to forget the guy who played the three biggest, larger-than-life heroes of the era? For good measure, he was also "Billy the Kid" and "Billy Carson" in a series of low-budget pictures. Pulp friction.

What is International Sex Worker Rights Day, and how did it start?
International Sex Worker Rights Day began in 2001 when over 25,000 sex workers gathered in India for a festival organized by a Calcutta-based group called Durbar Mahila Samanwaya Committee (Unstoppable Women’s Synthesis Committee). In 2002, Durbar invited organizations from around the world to join them in commemorating Sex Worker Rights Day on March 3rd:
We felt strongly that that we should have a day what need to be observed by the sex workers community globally. Keeping in view the large mobilization of all types of global sexworkers [Female, Male, Transgender], we proposed to observe 3rd March as THE SEX WORKERS RIGHTS DAY.
Knowing the usual response of international bodies and views of academicians and intellectuals of the 1st world [many of them consider that sex workers of third world are different from 1st world and can’t take their decision] a call coming from a third world country would be more appropriate at this juncture, we believe. It will be a great pleasure to us if all of you observe the day in your own countries too…We need your inspiration and support to turn our dreams into reality.
Since 2002, sex workers and advocates around the world have organized protests, gatherings, film screenings, art shows, and lectures on and around March 3 to raise awareness about human rights abuses sex workers face.
Ultimately, March 3rd provides an opportunity to shine a spotlight on sex worker activism, resilience, community and strength, and away from salaciousness, violations and paternalism. Sex worker organizing extends across the globe, with efforts aimed at demanding recognition of sex worker autonomy, freedom from criminalization and legal protection from violence and abuse.
Some Global Sex worker Rights Goals
- Stop police harassment and violence against sex workers, including robbery and rape
- Ensure sex workers have safe, fair working conditions
- Eliminate barriers to accessing healthcare, housing, mainstream employment, and financial services.
- End stigma and discrimination.
- Identify and assist victims of sex trafficking and reduce vulnerabilities to trafficking.
- Increase economic, racial and gender equality to address economic compulsion.
- Stop harmful brothel raids, sting operations, and crackdowns on sex worker communities online and outdoors. Decriminalize sex work.
10 Things to Do to Celebrate March 3rd
- Organize a film screening – Show a feature film, like Live Nude Acts Unite! Or The American Courtesans. Or show a half-dozen short films from around the world! There are many amazing sex worker rights videos: we’ve organized some on YouTube, and you can find more on other video-sharing sights.
- March or Protest – Organize a protest at the legislature, the court house, the public square. You can protest a specific local issue, or you can also just demonstrate to raise awareness about sex worker rights!
- Organize a public discussion – About global sex worker organizing, sex worker human rights abuses and what’s being done to stop them, or how to be an ally.
- Hold a community organizing and strategic planning day – Use “International Sex Worker Rights Day” to bring your sex worker community together and create goals and advocacy objectives.
- Use your event to create a consensus statement or new resource – Organize a guided discussion about “decriminalization” or “how to be an ally” or “what I love about myself” or priority issues, take notes, and then turn your notes into a statement or hand out! Or hold a discussion of issues people in your community has and turn the notes into a needs assessment or the start of community participatory action research.
- Launch a social media campaign – Fighting stigma or to raise awareness about a specific human rights abuse or issue. Chose a slogan or hashtag, get poster board or dry erase boards and markers, and take photos of people with the signs – Tweet & FB post!
- Hold a sex worker self-care day – March third is just as much about celebrating sex worker communities as it is about making change — and we need to take care of ourselves too! Organize a potluck picnic or brunch. Play beauty salon. Give each other back rubs.
- Hand out and/or put up flyers in high-traffic areas – If you want to do something public but are short on man-power, handing out flyers downtown, in a train station, or at a shopping center only takes one or two people. Shy? Put up flyers on coffee shop boards and flyer racks.
- Organize an art show – many sex workers are creative, talented people! Showcase some of their work!
- Organize an open-mic night at a local bar or coffee shop!
What Sex Workers and Advocates Say About Sex Worker Rights
We are not ONLY “victims” or ONLY “empowered”- the reality of the sex trade is complicated and our lives don’t fit into a box. Don’t ignore our reality by assuming we are one or the other (we might be both or neither – let us define how we view our lives.

[W]e believe that the right to do sex work legally (and as safely as possible) has parallels with the right to legal and safe abortion. Both issues directly involve the rights to life, liberty, security of the person, equality, privacy, and conscience, and in the case of sex work, the right to free expression and association as well…But when abortion or sex work is criminalized, those affected have even less choice and control – for example, they can be more easily exploited or harmed by unaccountable third parties, putting their lives and health at risk. Just like women who have abortions, sex workers face stigma and judgment and are often shamed and silenced, especially women and transgender workers.

The assumption is that sex workers are nothing but spreading disease and that places a heavy stigma on sex workers. If you’re a sex worker it is assumed that you must have HIV or you must be at a very, very high risk, but illogically your access to condoms is cut short.

[We] believes in the essential dignity of every human being and recognizes that marginalized communities must take the lead in addressing the challenges they confront if we are to make lasting progress toward social justice…In many of the countries where AJWS works, sex workers face extreme stigma, violence and discrimination—with severe consequences for their health and human rights. They face multiple barriers to accessing health services and information, including denial of treatment by health care providers.

By equating sex work to trafficking in persons, the very complex phenomenon of human trafficking is narrowed down to a moral issue, an approach that fails to address the economic, political and social root causes of trafficking. Furthermore, trafficked persons in all other industries are not recognised and remain unprotected.
The conflation of sex work and trafficking in persons leads to inadequate counter-trafficking policies and to counter-productive prostitution policies. The two issues are both complex and need their own individual approach and policy.

If all demands of sex workers could be summarised in one word, it would be decriminalisation. Progressive governments in New Zealand and New South Wales in Australia adopted a decriminalisation model to improve the situation of sex workers. Recently, the New Zealand government and the New Zealand Prostitutes Collective evaluated this model positively. The results of this evaluation demonstrate a significant reduction in the vulnerability of sex workers and improved access to human rights.

Criminalizing sex work, and conflating the buying or selling of consensual sex between adults with trafficking, aggravates the risks sex workers face. It also undermines the response to HIV, and perpetuates harmful patriarchal ideologies and gender stereotypes.

As the largest network of service providers to the victims of trafficking in the United States, we are dismayed to see the continued conflation of sex trafficking with sex work, and the ongoing confusion between buyers of sexual services and traffickers. We are concerned about the consequences of such tactics on sex workers and trafficking victims alike. The unintended consequences of these programs include increased isolation and vulnerability to violence and exploitation, as well as a deepening of the rift that prevents many trafficking victims from reaching out to law enforcement when they seek to escape their situation.

Even for those who believe that sex work is inherently harmful, criminalizing sex work creates harm in and of itself and only adds to the hardship of those working in the commercial sex industry. Criminalization creates stigma. Criminalization allows authorities to harass, intimidate, and exploit sex workers and individuals who are profiled as sex workers. Criminalization entrenches people in poverty and forecloses the ability of people to leave the sex trade. To protest the decriminalization of selling sex is to insist on further harming sex workers, including those trafficking victims who are forced into sex work.

In environments where many aspects of sex work are criminalized – including, for example, soliciting, living off the earnings of a sex worker (the latter generally penalizing families and children of sex workers the most), or other provisions criminalizing third parties — sex workers face discrimination and stigma which undermine their human rights, including to liberty, security of the person, equality, and health.

As we have repeatedly argued, regulating autonomous sex work and repealing any laws that indirectly encourage harassment and violence against us is the suitable way to respect and guarantee the human rights of those who voluntarily choose to engage in sex work.
“The key demand of the sex workers’ movement in Burma, in Asia and all around the world is simple. We demand that sex work is recognized as work. But we have one other key demand, specific to certain parts of the women’s movement. We demand that we are not treated as victims.”

“Legislation that governs sex work without consulting sex workers and advocacy organizations such as SWOP, inevitably falls short of understanding the complex nature of the sex industry. Sex workers demand inclusion. NOTHING ABOUT US WITHOUT US!

This 1983 Canadian (so you know it’s awesome) slasher stars the faboo Samantha Eggar and Linda Thorson (so you know it’s awesome). A bevy of young, nubile actresses converge on a remote mansion to audition for a director. Below you can see one of the film’s “Moments of WTF” that contribute to its greatness.
Written by Francis Scott Key, the Star Spangled Banner is the national anthem of the United States of America. On National Anthem Day, we celebrate and honor this song.
The story behind the Star Spangled Banner is as moving as the anthem itself. While an attorney, Key was serving in the Georgetown Light Field Artillery during the War of 1812. In 1814 his negotiation skills as a lawyer were called upon to release Dr. William Beane who was a prisoner on the British naval ship, Tonnant. Early in September Key traveled to Baltimore in the company of Colonel John Skinner to begin negotiations.
Key and Skinner secured Beane’s release but since the British navy had begun attacking Baltimore, the trio had to wait at sea to return to Georgetown.
Fort McHenry is built on a peninsula of the Patapsco River and the city of Baltimore is just across the Northwest Branch. In 1814, the population of Baltimore was roughly 50,000 people, hardly the metropolis it is today. The country itself was still young and often families of soldiers lived nearby and provided support to their soldiers.
The British navy abandoned Baltimore and turned their full attention on Fort McHenry on September 13. As the 190 pound shells began to shake the fort, mother nature brought a storm of her own. Thunder and rain pelted the shore along with the bombs and shells. Through out the night, parents, wives and children in their homes could hear and feel the bomb blasts across the way. There were reports of the explosions being felt as far away as Philadelphia. It was a long night of fear, worry and providing comfort to one another.
At sea, Key had a similar night. Being a religious man, one who believed the war could have been avoided, he watched the bombs bursting in air over the water and steadily pummeling Fort McHenry. It was surely a sight to behold.
For 25 hours the star shaped fort manned by approximately 1,000 American soldiers endured over 1,500 cannon shots. The fort answered with their own with almost no effect.
In the early morning of September 14th, after Major George Armistead’s armed troops stopped the British landing party in a blaze of gun fire, he ordered the oversized American flag which had been made a few months before by Mary Perckersgill and her daughter, raised in all its glory over Fort McHenry, replacing the storm flag which had been raised during battle.
As Key awaited at sea for dawn to break and smoke to clear, imagine the inspiring sight in the silence of the morning to see his country’s flag fully unfurled against the breaking of the day and the fort standing strong.
Key was so moved by the experience he immediately began penning the lyrics to a song which were later published by his brother-in-law as a poem titled “Defence of Fort M’Henry”.
The song officially became our national anthem on March 3, 1931.
