    Star Trek: Discovery adds Crouching Tiger alum as first cast member

    Consulting producer Nicholas Meyer told Coming Soon that Michelle Yeoh (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) has joined the cast, making her the first apparent hire for the new live-action Star Trek series. We know the series will focus on a first officer, as opposed to a captain, though there’s no word on which role Yeoh will apparently fill. Outside of the casting coup, Meyer didn’t offer up many other details.

    Historic Victory Against Hyper-Partisan Gerrymandering Emerges From Wisconsin

    “On Tuesday, the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin struck down hyper-partisan legislative redistricting maps declaring them to be “an unconstitutional political gerrymander.” The maps were drawn in secret in 2011 by a Republican legislature that controlled both houses and the Governorship.

    “The ruling was unprecedented and “truly historic” Milwaukee attorney Peter Earle told the Center for Media and Democracy. “It provides voters with an opportunity to fix a cancer growing on our democracy”…

    “The system IS rigged” said plaintiff Bill Whitford, Professor Emeritus at the University of Wisconsin Law School, “and against Democrats. Hopefully we can fix some of the problem with this litigation.” (BBM)

    Democrats’ Leadership Fight Pits West Wing Against Left Wing http://www.nytimes.com/2016/11/22/us/politics/democrats-leadership-fight-pits-west-wing-against-left-wing.html
    “WASHINGTON — Struggling to respond to Donald J. Trump’s victory, a group of shellshocked Democrats moved swiftly to endorse Representative Keith Ellison of Minnesota for chairman of the Democratic National Committee, hoping that he would be a fresh face for a party with a depleted bench.

    But after steadily adding endorsements from leading Democrats in his bid to take over the party, Mr. Ellison is encountering resistance from a formidable corner: the White House.

    In a sign of the discord gripping the party, President Obama’s loyalists, uneasy with the progressive Mr. Ellison, have begun casting about for an alternative, according to multiple Democratic officials close to the president.”

    “Some Democrats, in Mr. Obama’s orbit and beyond, say that elevating Mr. Ellison would amount to handing the party to Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont, Mrs. Clinton’s primary race opponent, and his liberal followers.”

      As much of the United States prepares to mark Thanksgiving this weekend, many Native Americans will gather in Plymouth to commemorate the 47th National Day of Mourning. This year is dedicated to water protectors at Standing Rock and to the struggle for recognition of Indigenous Peoples’ Day. To discuss this and more, we’re joined in San Francisco by indigenous historian and activist Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz. She’s the author of An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States and co-author of All the Real Indians Died Off: And 20 Other Myths About Native Americans.

      “…So, that’s — you know, the people at Plymouth, I send greetings to them. They have, for many years — I think it’s almost 40 years now — stood up and testified to the lie of Plymouth Rock, the Mayflower, the pilgrims. And this is very hard for people to give up. This is the national — nationalism. It’s actually — Americanism is white supremacy and represents negative things. There’s almost no way to reconcile it. It simply has to be deconstructed and faced up to; and, otherwise, there will be no social change that’s meaningful for anyone.”
