Cindra Ladd, with her producer husband Alan Ladd Jr., is the latest woman to accuse Bill Cosby of sexual assault. …
Bill Cosby's comedy tour continues, as do thestanding ovations, but that hasn't silenced his growing number of accusers. Another woman has come forward to share her story about being a victim of "America's dad."
Cindra Ladd, a former entertainment executive in the movie business and the wife of Blade RunnerBraveheart, and Chariots of Fire producer Alan Ladd Jr., penned an essay detailing her alleged rape by Cosby, who she also claims drugged her, when she was a 21-year-old living in New York City in 1969.
Like many of the accusers, Ladd said Cosby, who was married to his wife Camille at the time, befriended her and was a "perfect gentleman," she wrote on Huffington Post. One night when they were headed to a movie, she came down with a headache and when she considered canceling, he told her he had a "miracle cure his doctor gave him," in the form of a capsule. When she questioned him about what it was, "He asked, 'Don't you trust me?' Of course I did. This was Bill Cosby."
"For more than 45 years I have tried to recall exactly what happened that night," Ladd wrote. "To this day it remains a blur. I have a vague recollection of feeling like I was floating while walking through Times Square and watching some kind of Japanese samurai movie with him. I don't remember where the theater was nor very much of the evening."
She continued, "What I do recall, vividly and clearly, is waking up the next morning nude in the bed of his friend's apartment and seeing Cosby wearing a white terrycloth bathrobe and acting as if there was nothing unusual. It was obvious to me that he had had sex with me. I was horrified, embarrassed and ashamed. There was a mirror above the bed [of his friend's apartment], which shocked me further."

Ladd said that after making some awkward small talk, she hightailed it out of there. "Once in the elevator, I broke down crying, which I continued to do as I walked home to my apartment," she said. "It never occurred to me to go to the police. It was a different time and 'date rape' was a concept that didn't exist. I just kept asking myself over and over in disbelief why this had happened to me. Other than my roommate, I did not discuss that night with anyone for 36 years."
It was when Andrea Constand, the director of operations for the women's basketball program at Cosby's alma mater Temple University, publicly accused Cosby of drugging and sexually assaulting her in 2005 that Ladd revealed the incident to her husband of 30 years.
"I always thought I was the only one," she wrote. "I couldn't believe he had done this to others. I told my story to our attorney, who is also a good friend, because I was considering going public then, but eventually chose not to because the case was settled."
Ladd, who went on to become an entertainment executive and now is focused on philanthropic endeavors, said, "This is the first time I have chosen to speak out about that night. It is also the last time I intend to address it publicly. I have no plans to sue, I don't want or need money. I have no plans for a press conference or for doing any interviews. So why speak out at all and why now? The simple answer is that it's the right thing to do. The truth deserves to be known."

Ladd concluded her essay by sharing that she came into contact with Cosby one time since the alleged rape "when my husband, a highly successful Oscar-winning film executive and producer, introduced me to him," she wrote. "I was shaking, wondering if he would recognize me by my unusual first name. His reaction spoke volumes. To Bill Cosby, I was just another stranger."
Ladd joins a list of more than 20 women, including models Janice Dickinson and Beverly Johnson, who have accused The Cosby Show veteran of similar misconduct. His lawyer has repeatedly denied the claims of all the women, calling them "unsubstantiated, fantastical stories about things they say occurred 30, 40, or even 50 years ago" in a statement.
Cosby, who saw several of his comedy projects axed due to the allegations, continues his comedy tour across the United States. While several performances have been canceled, his next date is Jan. 30 in Ohio followed by nine performances in February. He has received standing ovations at many of his recent shows.

from Jig Saw Jam: how to do the puzzle fast

Yesterday's Comments
dkmGames: Should I increase the fit tolerance for challenges? It is currently fixed at 5 (max = 20).
bambi: what is going on this wont load either!
annlacko: I think it could be slightly increased. Since I don't see numbers, just a sliding bar to adjust fit tolerance, I would say 7 or 8 (centered under the black little square with the back color selections).
bambi: finally was able to open the puzzles. Many thanks
foobar: Should you make pieces snap together more easily? No. I think the current level of challenge is fine. I think if you made it easier there would be more rejected sub 4 minute times.
akimbo: I thought it was on my end. I almost always (on the challenges) have to click a piece into position multiple times to get it to attach to the puzzle.
LThomson: Seems like the current level is fine.
artanis: If people are finishing this puzzle at 5 minutes, then I think the tolerance is fine. I too sometimes have to click a couple of times, but I don't waste time trying to get them in. Instead I go to the next piece and since the puzzle jumps a little with every connection, they sometimes go in by themselves. If not, I nudge them in at the end. But then again, I'm NOT a big finisher! :)
WB8FBG: where was the picture taken, please.
katshe: I'd love to see the tolerance upped a little. Thank you, dkmGames, for being on top of things and also for reading our comments! Whether you decide to change settings or not, being heard is much appreciated.
peardrop: I've done puzzles for more years than I want to remember. I don't possible see how someone does these in 5 minutes. H---, I can't even find the edges in that amount of time. And the "Edges" click doesn't work. I'm never out of the +150 finished range. Not complaining, I do enjoy doing them. I just can't figure out these folks who do it in the 15 minutes or so range. Happy Monday, peardrop
Alain: Il est vrai que d'être entendu est bien. Je pense qu'il n'est pas nécessaire d'augmenter la tolérance. J'ai un petit truc pour ceux qui veulent baisser leur temps. Ne placer pas la dernière pièce et recommencer le puzzle, en faisant cela plusieurs fois on peut gagner 4 à 5 minutes, en effet notre cerveau s'habitue aux formes et couleurs des pièces, même si la main reste imprécise.
Google Translate :
It is true that to be heard is good. I think it is not necessary to increase tolerance. I have a little something for those who want to lower their time. Do not place the last piece and start the puzzle, doing this several times you can earn 4 to 5 minutes, in fact our brain gets used to the colors and shapes of the parts, even if the hand remains unclear.
martha: I would like you to increase tolerance. It's frustrating when you know a piece goes somewhere and you have to click several times to get it on. I often arrange pieces and I would lose those pieces that were difficult to fit.
Sharona: The people who complete the puzzles under 5 minutes very likely train on the puzzle before actually completing it to the last piece. Having said that, the speed of completion also depends on the technology used. My brother has a sensitive touch screen, since he got his ipad his times are so much faster.
Sharona: i am in favour of increasing the tolerance a bit. Let's give it a two week trial, and see what people think. Liek Martha, I have to re-click several times sometimes.

dkmGames, I made a suggestions a few days ago that the comments page will be accessible by clicking on a link, so if someone comments on the mystery, this does not ruin the surprise for others; some people obviously feel very passionately about this.
hebebear: Nice puzzle I sent in from a trip to Belgium some years ago. The netting made it into a much more interesting puzzle that it at first seemed.
Sharona: Beautiful photo for the challenge!
tribble: Derek, what happened to the note you added to the comment section about not spoiling the mystery puzzle? It was there for some time but it is gone now, it seemed to do the trick for stopping the spoilers!
As for people who practice the challenge puzzle and click the back button before the last piece is put in, is there a way to make it so we can't restart the challenge?
tsii: I think a slight increase in tolerance will work. Right now, tablet users have a great advantage. Perhaps would be interesting to post next to the time if the time was done using the app (so tablet was used). Would be interesting statistic. 
toots: Maybe there should be an "auto" finish for the last 3 - 5 pieces. The people who are going back would be THWARTED---HAHAHAHA ARH!

Wichita Airport: New Name New Look New Logo

Wichita Airport Unveils New Logo

WICHITA, Kan.  -  Wichita city leaders today unveiled a new logo for the Wichita Dwight D. Eisenhower National Airport.

The new logo contains a dominant "W" for Wichita and a smaller "E" for Eisenhower.

The Wichita City Council approved the name change last year.

The airport name pays tribute to President Dwight D. Eisenhower. His granddaughter Mary Eisenhower was in Wichita for today's unveiling. "My grandfather loved aviation and the great state of Kansas, of course," Mary Eisenhower said. "I don't think it could get any better for him than this right now."

Some 20 highway signs are already being switched out to reflect the name change.

"You'll see the new name reflected in everything from highway signage, to marketing materials, and the social media channels," said airport director Victor White.

This is the third name in Wichita airport history. It was first known as Wichita Municipal Airport before being renamed Wichita Mid-Continent Airport in 1973.
