Sarah Silverman just life-coached everyone who's felt undeserving. Such a cool perspective.

A real-life moment of unequal pay turns into a beautiful discussion of hard work, pressure, appreciating yourself, and ... BASKETBALL.

Sarah got $10, and her friend and fellow comedian Todd Barry got $60 for the same job.

That's a big pay gap. Even bigger than the usual 78 cents on the dollar.

A $50 difference.

Before you think ANYTHING ELSE, STOP.

Here's Sarah talking about it -— using basketball (that's right!):

"I've always played basketball. But I have been playing with mostly men, and when you do that ... every basket you miss is like missing 100 baskets. And that comes from inside.

The guys shoot and miss all the time. Most of the time, and they get better. I'm old now, and since I have realized that, and realized that it's come from inside me of how you think — what you think you deserve.

That's the realness.

Yes, unequal pay is unfair, and something should be done about it. The outside world is unfair.

It can feel so hard to feel like you have to fix it all on your own. Almost like you have to shoot 100 baskets.

But being fair to yourself* inside your own mind? That's so possible. Right now.

(*Whether you're a lady or a dude or neither or both!)

Nothin' but net.

The recent passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg not only marked the end of an illustrious life of service to law and country, but the beginning of an unprecedented judicial nomination process. While Ginsburg's spot on the Supreme Court sits open, politicians and regular Americans alike argue over whether or not it should be filled immediately, basing their arguments on past practices and partisan points.

When a Supreme Court vacancy came up in February of 2016, nine months before the election, Senate Republicans led by Mitch McConnell refused to even take up a hearing to consider President Obama's pick for the seat, arguing that it was an election year and the people should have a say in who that seat goes to.

Four years later, a mere six weeks before the election, that reasoning has gone out the window as Senate Republicans race to get a nominee pushed through the approval process prior to election day. Now, they claim, because the Senate majority and President are of the same party, it makes sense to proceed with the nomination.

Schools often have to walk a fine line when it comes to parental complaints. Diverse backgrounds, beliefs, and preferences for what kids see and hear will always mean that schools can't please everyone all the time, so educators have to discern what's best for the whole, broad spectrum of kids in their care.

Sometimes, what's best is hard to discern. Sometimes it's absolutely not.

Such was the case this week when a parent at a St. Louis elementary school complained in a Facebook group about a book that was read to her 7-year-old. The parent wrote:

"Anyone else check out the read a loud book on Canvas for 2nd grade today? Ron's Big Mission was the book that was read out loud to my 7 year old. I caught this after she watched it bc I was working with my 3rd grader. I have called my daughters school. Parents, we have to preview what we are letting the kids see on there."

"Very nice!" It appears as though Kazakhstan's number one reporter, Borat Sagdiyev, is set to return to the big screen in the near future and the film's title is a sight to behold.

Reports show that the title submitted to the Writer's Guild of America, "Borat: Gift Of Pornographic Monkey To Vice Premiere Mikhael Pence To Make Benefit Recently Diminished Nation Of Kazakhstan" is even longer than the first film's, "Borat: Cultural Learnings Of America For Make Benefit Glorious Nation Of Kazakhstan."

As the title suggests, the film is expected to feature an encounter with U.S. Vice President Mike Pence as well as President Trump's TV lawyer, Rudy Giuliani.
