Austin Is A Tepid Contender For Amazon's HQ2

 Cache   
From Texas Standard : One question Amazon's Alexa won't be able to answer – at least not yet – is where Amazon will build its next headquarters. It's been a year since the tech company announced it has outgrown its Seattle home base and needs to expand elsewhere. But the $1 trillion company has been tight-lipped about where that might be. Since that announcement, 238 U.S. cities ingratiated themselves to the company, trying to win its favor. Amazon whittled that list of bids to 20 finalists, and among them are Austin and Dallas.

A Grip on Sports: Every sport seems to have some sort of presence in October, which makes weekends pretty fun

 Cache   

A GRIP ON SPORTS • A weird confluence of American sporting events occurred over the weekend and you might not even have noticed it. Just call it the overlap weekend and move on.

•••••••

• Winter may be the season of ice and snow, spring of rebirth and summer of the lazy day, but fall? Fall is special. It’s when everything in the sporting world intersects.

It’s hard to think of a better example than yesterday.

The NFL dominated, of course, as it would no matter which of the 52 Sundays it is. But it wasn’t alone on the stage.

The MLS held its final competitions of the regular season, deciding which teams would make the playoffs and where they would be slotted. All the games were played at the same time, forcing fans to continually check scores in the afternoon hours.

The NBA continued its preseason preparations, which included an international incident of some import.

The NHL season is underway, with the regular season just a prelude to one of the best playoffs in all professional sports. Unless, you know, your team is based in Canada.

Golf is actually in the midst of the 2020 season, even as we wait for the Presidents Cup to fill our team match-play competition desire before 2019 hits the 19th hole.

And baseball? It’s rolling toward its finale, as summer held on in the Eastern part of the nation and the Nationals bullpen couldn’t hold off the Dodgers.

No matter which sport you love beyond all others, be it boxing, horse racing, college hoops or even tennis, there was something going on in the weekend just past. And not just some always some exhibition, even though, as Kansas’ basketball program discovered, too much of that can cause problems.

Yesterday, for example, we sat in front of the TV for a couple hours and watched, in order of excitement, the RedZone, baseball playoffs, a soccer match from Portland and Kevin Na make a whole bunch of long putts.

It was the Granny’s Buffet of sports. And it was all you could consume.

• What’s ahead this week?

Well, baseball continues its playoffs, with the Braves and Dodgers seemingly headed toward a National League showdown reminiscent of the 1980s, and the Yankees and Astros, both winners of 100-plus games, doing the same in the American League.

College football features a whole bunch of big games Saturday, including what was once the greatest intersectional rivalry in sports (USC vs. Notre Dame). The Cougars also return to the field with a new man (or men) in charge of their defense.

The NFL continues its regular season, as the Seahawks prepare to play the Cleveland Browns (and I read up on the correct way to grill a kielbasa). Will this be the week Russell Wilson finally throws an interception and the national pundits can declare him “overrated?”

Winter may be just around the next bend but, for a while at least, we can forget about it. Our thoughts can be on the smorgasbord of sports we have to consume. What a great way to fatten up for the cold ahead.  

•••

WSU: Not a lot in the football arena today, but the soccer team did score a big win in the Bay Area on a golden goal. … Elsewhere in the Pac-12 and around the nation, there are a whole bunch of teams still undefeated after five weeks of the football season. They all have made their way near the top of the Associated Press Top 25. … Washington’s passing offense seems to have stalled recently. How did that happen? … Oregon State’s offense seems to be on fire, though it’s hard to tell after the Beavers just played a woeful UCLAdefense. We will know more after they play Utah this weekend. The 15th-ranked Utes are coming off a bye. … Don’t expect Chip Kelly to quit. … Oregon may have struggled a bit against California, but everyone does. … Arizona is atop the South Division standings. That is all. … USC travels to South Bend this weekend.

Gonzaga: Mark Few spoke out last week concerning the California legislature’s interjecting itself into the likeness and image discussion. As we reported, he wasn’t too happy with the “help.” He expounded on that a bit Saturday and his thoughts are part of this Justin Reed story. … Seth Davis came to Spokane recently and had a meal at Jack and Dan's. Ya, that's what he had there. More importantly, he spoke with a bunch of former Gonzaga players about the past – and the present.

Chiefs: Everett figured out a way to slow what had been a potent Spokane offense and it resulted in a 4-3 Silvertips win last night at the Arena. Kevin Dudley was there and has this coverage. Libby Kamrowski also has a photo gallery.

Seahawks: The trade deadline looms, but getting Jarran Reed back will be a bigger deal.

Sounders:Roman Torres returned from his suspension and scored the only goal in a 1-0 win over Minnesota. The victory locked up second in the West for Seattle. … Portland won 3-1 and earned a playoff berth. … Real Salt Lake picked up a victory that moved into third in the West.

• Once, a long time ago, my father-in-law came up for a visit. He brought his tools with him. Nice man. He and I were doing some work in the back of the house. He was disgusted with my inability to complete many of what he considered simple tasks. I get it. My skills in that regard were – and are – limited. His were spectacular. Finally, he turned to me and said something I still remember today, some 25 years later. “If I had known (Kim) was going to marry someone like you, I would have taught her more.” I’m thinking of that today as a contractor comes out to my home to fix things I should be able to. At least I’m pretty good at writing a check. Until later …


          

A Grip on Sports: Young Zags and an old story highlight a Cougar-less Saturday

 Cache   

A GRIP ON SPORTS • It’s a rare fall Saturday the past couple decades in which we haven’t had to work. Which opened an almost unlimited vista of opportunities on a clear, crisp day. We stayed (or went) inside. But that doesn’t mean we didn’t watch sports. And learn some things.

•••••••

• Thanks to a family friend, Kim and I were able to attend the Kraziness in the Kennel with some VIP perks. What does that mean? Our line was shorter, we got to mingle and watch TV, enjoy a cold beverage – don’t worry, I had diet soda – and sit in decent seats.

Oh, and catch up with some old friends, which is always nice. Then find out the oldest of Gonzaga’s friendly men’s basketball players is out again, though Mark Few wouldn’t term Killian Tillie’s absence Saturday injury-based. Sure, Tillie had surgery again, but it was preventative, sort of like why we take a cholesterol pill every night.

We do it to make sure there are no problems down the road.

As John Blanchette points out in his column this morning, that would go down easier with the Zag faithful if it applied to anyone other than Tillie, the most snakebit player Gonzaga has had since at least Josh Heytvelt.

The guy sitting in front of me sure had a lot to say about that, none of it positive. His response to the news of Tillie's surgery seemed a little out of proportion, venom-wise. And we thought GU fans were more of the nurturing, loving type.

Few is going to have to be a bit more nurturing and loving this season, that’s for sure. All but three players on the court yesterday afternoon were new to the roster (four when you count Tillie). Two are senior transfers (Admon Gilder and Ryan Gilder, both guards and both players who will contribute). The rest are freshmen.

Six of them.

Do they have talent? Of course they do. They wouldn’t be at GU if they didn’t. But nothing can make them older except time, practice and a tough non-conference schedule.

The Zags will scrimmage with Michigan State, a lot of folks’ pick to win the NCAA title. They will play at Texas A&M, Gilder’s old school. They will face quality in the Bahamas at a Thanksgiving tournament. They play at Washington and Arizona, two of the Pac-12’s better teams, in December. And they host North Carolina, the bluest of blue bloods.

No wonder Few told the crowd it would play a bigger-than-usual role in helping his team this season.

Their voices and support won’t help, though, as much as the passage of time.

• There is one nice perk when the Pac-12 team you follow (in my case, for work) has a bye. You get to focus on the conference’s other games. Sometimes that isn’t good.

If you happened to watch Stanford’s upset of Washington (and I did) last night, you were able to experience a little of why the conference has such a poor reputation concerning its officiating.

Sorry to go there, but there were so many little things done poorly, it undermines the fans’ confidence the conference’s representatives will get the big things right.

Case in point, a first-half punt. What happened seems minor, but it isn’t. Mainly because it was so embarrassing.

With time running down in the half and Stanford hoping to extend a 13-10 lead, the Huskies’ Joel Whitford uncorked a line-drive punt. It was so short it hit a Washington player in the leg at the Stanford 27-yard line, then kicked forward and rolled dead at the 10.

Everyone in the stadium knew it happened, including the officials and the ESPN announcers. What the former group didn’t know, however, was exactly where. Those of us at home did – as should of the folks in the replay booth. All we (and they) had to do was hit one button on the remote to see. It was the 27. That’s where the ball should have been marked. It wasn’t. When referee Kevin Mar came on our screen to explain, he told us about the touching and where it occurred. He said the 20-yard line, a point at which the ball had been rolling free. He and his crew were wrong.

This is what replay is meant for. The clock is stopped, the mistake is obvious. Buzz down and fix it. Nope. The ball stayed at the 20. Thousand of people watching at home, including the folks in charge of the conference’s officiating and those in charge of its image, knew it was wrong. Fix it. Nope. The ball stayed at the 20.

By the way, those seven yards may have ultimately cost Stanford a shot at a long Jet Toner field goal attempt. We will never know. But we do know the Cardinal didn’t start their possession in the right spot.

•••

WSU: Even though Theo Lawson was enjoying the bye week by celebrating friends’ nuptials (hey, he put his plans on Twitter, so I don’t feel bad sharing), he still talked with Mike Leach and let the Cougar coach enlighten us on defensive coordinator Tracy Claeys’ departure. Though Leach’s comments didn’t shed a whole lot of light on the change. …The letters to the editor on Leach's comments following the Utah loss were mixed in nature. … Elsewhere in the Pac-12, the standings seem a bit upside down right now. … Stanford controlled the line of scrimmage, made plays when it had to and ultimately held off Washington in the upset of the day. The Huskies never found their rhythm in the loss. … California shut outOregon for a half, then the Ducks asserted themselves to gain a tight home win. The Bears' lack of offense cost them in the end. … The Arizona offense came alive behind a healthyKhalil Tate and the Wildcats won in Colorado. The Buffs might be better than their record, however. They certainly are beat up. … UCLAcertainly isn't all that good. The Bruins looked poor again as Oregon State went into the Rose Bowl and outscoredthe host team, adding to Chip Kelly's woes. … The college athletic model will change.

Gonzaga: The Kraziness in the Kennel was just that, especially in the way the Gonzaga students went out of their way to make a quartet of recruits feel wanted (Justin Reed has a story). Besides the Killie injury (as we said, covered in John’s column), the news was a nearly new roster for the Zags. In Mark Few’s years on campus there has probably a season with more turnover – after more than three decades as an assistant and a head coach, it’s hard to imagine anything new – but we can’t think of one. Jim covers that aspect of the day. … Jim has another story as he passed along the news freshman Oumar Ballo, the most physically impressive player on the court, is still waiting for the NCAA to rule on his eligibility. … Jesse Tinsley braved the crowds of cameras for the best shots in this photo gallery.

EWU: Our Ryan Collingwood was in Sacramento, probably to catch up with his yearly quota of In-N-Out, but also to cover the game. He has this story. … Around the Big Sky,

Idaho: A week after dropping a road game to woeful Northern Colorado – the Bears are 1-5 after losing at Northern Arizona yesterday – the Vandals looked like a Big Sky contender again Saturday. But fourth-ranked Weber State was able to hold on for 41-35 win in the Kibbie Dome. Peter Harriman has the coverage.

Whitworth: The Pirates finally played at home Saturday and my, how did they play. How does winning 82-7 sound? Dan Thompson was at the Pine Bowl and has this game story.

Preps: There was one football game left over from Friday night, pushed back to Saturday after some lightning around Albi Stadium. The was some lightning yesterday, but it was all confined to the playing surface and most of it supplied by Lewis and Clark’s Keani Guthmueller. Dave Nichols was there and he has this story on LC’s 43-36 win over Post Falls. … Gonzaga Prep wing Liam Lloyd announced his college commitment yesterday, going on social media to tell everyone he will be playing at Grand Canyon College. Dave has a story on that as well. … Mead golfer Matt Jones was under par last weekend in an event at Pebble Beach. That news is part of our local briefs.

Chiefs: Spokane’s offense stayed hot, rolling Tri-City 7-1 last night in Kennewick.

Seahawks: No game today. Isn't that odd? Let's look ahead instead.

•••       

• Because Kim and I were out and about yesterday, I didn’t get anything I wanted done. Which means my Sunday will be busy. At least the sun will be out and  temperature is going to be in the high 50s today, making the mowing and raking and fertilizing a little more enjoyable. Until later …

Timbers Step Up, Qualify for Postseason in Style

Craig Mitchelldyer/Portland Timbers
Heading into the decisive final day of the MLS regular season, there were plenty of bad omens for a struggling Portland Timbers team in need of a result to qualify for the playoffs.

Brian Fernandez was suspended. Diego Valeri was out with a lingering calf injury. And the San Jose Earthquakes were coming into Providence Park with everything to play for — in need of a win to keep their own season alive.

This time, though, after a month of of ugly soccer and bad breaks and disappointing results, the Timbers got the job done and did it with room to spare.

Goals from Larrys Mabiala, Dairon Asprilla, and Sebastian Blanco were more than enough to lift the Timbers to their first win in six games on a lovely fall afternoon, jump into sixth place in the Western Conference, and bring the curtain down on San Jose's remarkable season.

All of the sudden, after all they endured this fall, the Timbers can look forward to a third-straight playoff appearance that will begin with a game against Real Salt Lake — a team that they've already beaten twice this year, at a venue that they've won at in both of their previous visits under Giovani Savarese.

Things are looking up. Facing the biggest test of their season, the Timbers had the right gameplan and executed it to near-perfection.

With San Jose man-marking in the ubiquitous system installed by their Argentinian manager Matias Almeyda, Savarese — in a move reminiscent of Portland's surge last fall — set his team up to defend deep and hit the 'Quakes on the break.

The early returns were positive. The Timbers nearly took the lead after a quarter of an hour when a Blanco corner hit Chris Wondolowski and forced San Jose goalkeeper Daniel Vega into a sprawling save, and generally were contesting the game on their terms.

The Timbers were getting traction going forward, and while the Earthquakes had plenty of the ball — they'd finish with 61 percent possession and complete nearly 200 more passes than the Timbers did — they were completely unable to break down the Timbers' defensive lines.

A slaloming, one-man run aside, Jorge Villafaña held the dangerous Cristian Espinoza was held in check. Vako completed only four passes during the entirety of the half on the opposite flank, Wondolowski just two from his position at center forward.

The Timbers' attack was limited somewhat with Asprilla and Andy Polo playing on the wings, but with Ebobisse dealing up top and Blanco slashing through the middle, it had a balance that had often been missing over the last several months.

It was on a set piece, though, that the Timbers would strike first.

Just before the half hour mark, Asprilla settled a recycled corner on the edge of the penalty area and slipped a ball wide left for an onrushing Villafaña, who whipped a pass across the face of goal that Mabiala, who had stayed in the box after the initial clearance, stuck out his trailing leg and dragged in.

Just like that, San Jose was in serious trouble — in need of multiple goals, with a third of the game gone, having failed to create a single significant chance yet. But they still had Wondolowski, and, with him, the ability to conjure a goal from thin air.

With halftime closing in and the score 1-0, that's exactly with they did. Off of a pre-planned corner routine, Espinoza hit a cross to the near post and the 36-year-old record MLS goalscorer beat everyone to the ball and flicked a diving header off of the ground, off of the underside of the crossbar, and in to tie the game.

Craig Mitchelldyer/Portland Timbers
It was vintage Wondolowski — a purely instinctual, fearless finish, his record eleventh goal against Portland, a one of the most important of his season.

As the second half began, with Dallas running riot over Sporting Kansas City, everything was on the table. One of these teams was going to be playing its final 45 minutes of the season, one was going to move on.

Enter, not for the first time and not ever unremarkably, Asprilla. Handed his first start in a month ahead of Marvin Loría, the Colombian with a penchant for scoring the most timely of goals repaid Savarese's faith with another memorable contribution.

Just before the hour mark, Asprilla drifted inside to pick up a cross-field pass from Ebobisse, cut past Florien Jungwirth with an excellent first touch, and went barreling through on goal. Vega stopped his first shot, but the rebound squibbed underneath him — and Asprilla, at the second time of asking, tucked it in.

Whatever his past, for a player who has had the most abject of seasons, this was a stunning moment: a truly excellent goal, all of his own making, thanks to the kind of decisive turn of pace that you almost never see him make when he receives the ball.

At this time of the year, though, there's no rhyme or reason when it comes to Asprilla. He's just a different player.

Almeyda emptied his bench almost immediately the goal, making all three of his substitutions and trying to push his team — again in search of two goals, now with just 30 minutes left to play — into a more overtly attacking posture.

In the process, which included removing a defensive midfielder, the 'Quakes opened themselves up on the counter. The Timbers had several chance to ice the game in the following minutes, with Ebobisse and Cristhian Paredes coming closest, but it'd take a special moment from Blanco to make the result secure.

With a quarter of an hour to play, and Valeri off the field, it was the diminutive Argentine who stepped to a free kick from 25 yards away and fired it into the top corner.

No player on the field more deserved to score. The Timbers were never worse over the last month than when Blanco was out of the lineup, and on a day when they were missing their two most high profile attackers, he brought the heat in every phase of the game.

With that, San Jose was buried. They finished the season having lost six straight, a sour end to an otherwise triumphant first MLS campaign for Almeyda.

The Timbers' run-in wasn't much prettier. But Savarese, who has never missed the postseason as a manager, was understandably pleased with his team's perseverance. They didn't throw in the towel, and they made it to the finish line with their season intact.

"It has been a very difficult season in so many ways," Savarese said after the game. "So that’s why I think even in this moment that we have been able to make the playoffs, I’m more proud than ever for all the guys we have on the team.”

The slate is clean. Salt Lake away, a team the Timbers know they can beat, and then the specter of another playoff meeting with Seattle. The possibilities, just as they should at this time of the year, abound.

Si en época de verano tenemos la fortuna de poder disfrutar de días más largos, con mayor iluminación y calor, la llegada del otoño cambia todo.

5 Bulls Found Dead in Oregon; Then the Story Gets Weird……

Oct. 1, 2019 at 9:38 pm Updated Oct. 2, 2019 at 5:55 pm

 By Andrew Selsky

The Associated Press

SALEM, Ore. (AP) — The first dead bull was found in a timbered ravine in Eastern Oregon. There was no indication it had been shot, attacked by predators or eaten poisonous plants.

The animal’s sex organs and tongue had been removed. All the blood was gone. In the next few days, four more Hereford bulls were found within 1.5 miles (2.5 kilometers) in the same condition. There were no tracks around the carcasses.

Ranch management and law enforcement suspect that someone killed the bulls. Ranch hands have been advised to travel in pairs and to go armed.

Ever since the bulls were found over several days in July, Harney County sheriff’s Deputy Dan Jenkins has received many calls and emails from people speculating what, or who, might be responsible.

The theories range from scavengers such as carrion bugs eating the carcasses to people attacking the animals to cause financial harm to ranchers. Jenkins, who is leading the investigation that also involves state police, has run into only dead ends and has no witnesses.

“If anyone has concrete information or knows of any cases that have been solved in the past, that would definitely be helpful,” he said. Colby Marshall, vice president of the Silvies Valley Ranch that owned the bulls, has another theory: “We think that this crime is being perpetuated by some sort of a cult.”

The case recalls mutilations of livestock across the U.S. West and Midwest in the 1970s that struck fear in rural areas. Thousands of cattle and other livestock ranging from Minnesota to New Mexico were found dead with their reproductive organs and sometimes part of their faces removed.

Ranchers began carrying guns. Folks said helicopters had been heard around the kill sites. A federal agency canceled an inventory by helicopter of its lands in Colorado, worried that it would get shot down.

A couple of U.S. senators urged the FBI to investigate, according to FBI documents. After saying it lacked jurisdiction, the FBI agreed to investigate cases on tribal lands. But the mutilations stopped.Former FBI agent Kenneth Rommel, who headed the investigation, said there was no indication that anything other than common predators were responsible.

Cases have emerged sporadically since then. In the 1980s, a few cows were found dead and mutilated in eastern Oregon. More recently, there have been cases on a ranch near Flagstaff, Arizona.

Some of the mutilations can be attributed to natural causes. An animal drops dead, the blood pools at the bottom of the carcass, it bloats, and the skin dries out and splits. The tears often appear surgical. Carrion bugs, birds and other scavengers go for the soft tissues.

Dave Bohnert, director of Oregon State University’s Eastern Oregon Agricultural Research Center in Burns, said he believes people killed the most recent bulls because there is no indication they were felled by predators or had eaten poisonous plants.

However, the state of the carcasses could be attributable to nature, said Bohnert, who is not officially investigating the case.

If people killed the bulls, a motive could be to financially harm the ranch, he said, noting that breeding bulls cost thousands of dollars each, and the 100-plus calves each of them sire are collectively worth much more.

Marshall doubts it was a malicious attack on the ranch, which employs 75 people, many from local communities. Silvies Valley Ranch covers 140,000 acres (57,000 hectares) of deeded and leased National Forest lands around a mile above sea level.

In 2006, a wealthy veterinarian bought the ranch and made it a combination working ranch and an elite destination resort. It has four golf courses, a spa, shooting ranges, fishing and luxury cabins going for up to $849 per night.

Marshall suspects the bulls were killed to get the organs of the free-ranging bulls for some reason. The bull parts would be available cheaply or free at a slaughterhouse, but he believes some people are going to a lot of trouble to get these parts on the range.

There’s no sign that scavengers removed the organs of the bull.

"Going Galt": America's Wealth Producers Vs. Wealth Redistributors

 Cache   

Enough. These "Tea Party" protests spanned the sunny Santa Monica pier to the icy streets of Chicago and Cleveland to rain-drenched Atlanta, overflowing the grounds of the St. Louis Gateway Arch, with massive turnouts in Greenville, S.C., and crowds of several hundred each in New York City and Washington, D.C., and all points in between. Like those who demonstrated before them in Seattle, Denver, Mesa, Ariz., and Overland Park, Kan., two weeks ago, the Tea Party participants held homemade signs that said it all: "Your mortgage is not my problem"; "Liberty: All the stimulus we need"; "No taxation without deliberation."

The speed and scope with which they mobilized were due not to nefarious outside conspiracists, but to social networking websites Facebook and Twitter, where a burgeoning network on Twitter called Top Conservatives became the central clearinghouse for information. Planning for a new wave of demonstrations on April 15 has begun at www.taxdayteaparty.com#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/28372&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com.

Enough. While they take to the streets politically, untold numbers of America's wealth producers are going on strike financially. Dr. Helen Smith, a Tennessee forensic psychologist and political blogger, dubbed the phenomenon "Going Galt" last fall. It's a reference to the famed Ayn Rand novel "Atlas Shrugged," in which protagonist John Galt leads the entrepreneurial class to cease productive activities in order to starve the government of revenue. (Not coincidentally, Rand's novel sales are up and John Galt references punctuated many of the Tea Party demonstrations.) Dr. Smith was inundated with stories like these:

"I have frozen hiring in my firm. ... No investments will be made in taxable accounts -- only 401k/IRAs. I am buying silver and gold instead of CDs or stocks with non-qualified money and savings. I have stopped taking new clients, thus freezing my income. I barter more and more. Spend less. I stopped leveraging assets (don't borrow)."

"I have cut WAY back -- I'm no longer buying retail, driving out of a 10-mile radius, spending money on eating out or putting my money in a savings account. I am using the money to pay off all of our debt. It has made our family closer, more appreciative."

Another blogger wrote: "Last year my family paid nearly $1,000 a month in federal taxes, and we are not by any stretch of the imagination rich. I'm going to make it my business to cut that amount in half, using every legal means possible and reducing my income so there is less to tax."

Enough. Those business owners are not alone. This week, ABC News spotlighted upper-income earners going Galt in response to Obama's proposed tax hikes on families with incomes of $250,000 or more. A Lafayette, La., attorney told the reporter she was cutting back on her business to avoid the tax threshold: "Why kill yourself working if you're going to give it all away to people who aren't working as hard?" Tax hikes have consequences. Incentives matter. Only self-deluded wealth redistributors living in la-la land believe otherwise.

Another business owner, Dr. Sharon Poczatek, explained: "The motivation for a lot of people like me -- dentists, entrepreneurs, lawyers -- is that the more you work the more money you make," said Poczatek. "But if I'm going to be working just to give it back to the government -- it's de-motivating and demoralizing."

The perpetual Borrow-Spend-Panic-Repeat machine in Washington depends on the capitulation of the wealth producers. There's only one monkey wrench that can stop the redistributionist thieves' engine. It's engraved with the word: Enough.


          

Obama's New Commerce Secretary Nominee: Not So "Squeaky Clean"

 Cache   

The left-leaning Seattle Weekly newspaper notes that Locke presided over a $3.2 billion tax break for Boeing while "never disclosing he paid $715,000 to -- and relied on the advice of -- Boeing's own private consultant and outside auditor." Then there's the tainted matter of Locke's "favors for his brother-in-law (who lived in the governor's mansion), including a tax break for his relative's company, personal intervention in a company dispute, and Locke's signature on a federal loan application for the company." Locke's laces ain't so straight.

The glowing profiles of Locke have largely glossed over his troubling ties to the Clinton-era Chinagate scandal. As the nation's first Chinese-American governor, Locke aggressively raised cash from ethnic constituencies around the country. Convicted campaign finance money-launderer John Huang helped grease the wheels and open doors.

In the same time period that Huang was drumming up illegal cash for Clinton-Gore at the federal level, he also organized two 1996 galas for Locke in Washington, D.C. (where Locke hobnobbed with Clinton and other Chinagate principals); three fundraisers in Los Angeles; and an extravaganza at the Universal City, Calif., Hilton in October 1996 that raised upward of $30,000. Huang also made personal contributions to Locke -- as did another Clinton-Gore funny-money figure, Indonesian business mogul Ted Sioeng and his family and political operatives.

Sioeng, whom Justice Department and intelligence officials suspected of acting on behalf of the Chinese government, illegally donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to both Democratic and Republican coffers. Bank records from congressional investigators indicated that one Sioeng associate's maximum individual contribution to Locke was illegally reimbursed by the businessman's daughter.

Checks to Locke's campaign poured in from prominent Huang and Sioeng associates, many of whom were targets of federal investigations, including: Hoyt Zia, a Commerce Department counsel, who stated in a sworn deposition that Huang had access to virtually any classified document through him; Melinda Yee, another Clinton Commerce Department official who admitted to destroying Freedom of Information Act-protected notes on a China trade mission involving Huang's former employer, the Indonesia-based Lippo Group; Praitun Kanchanalak, mother of convicted Thai influence-peddler Pauline Kanchanalak; Kent La, exclusive distributor of Sioeng's Chinese cigarettes in the United States; and Sioeng's wife and son-in-law.

Locke eventually returned a token amount of money from Huang and Kanchanalak, but not before bitterly playing the race card and accusing critics of his sloppy accounting and questionable schmoozing of stirring up anti-Asian-American sentiment. "It will make our efforts doubly hard to get Asian Americans appointed to top-level positions across the United States," Locke complained. "If they have any connection to John Huang, those individuals will face greater scrutiny and their lives will be completely opened up and examined -- perhaps more than usual."

That scrutiny (such as it was) was more than justified. On top of his Chinagate entanglements, Locke's political committee was fined the maximum amount by Washington's campaign finance watchdog for failing to disclose out-of-state New York City Chinatown donors. One of those events was held at NYC's Harmony Palace restaurant, co-owned by Chinese street gang thugs.

And then there were Locke's not-so-squeaky-clean fundraising trips to a Buddhist temple in Redmond, Wash., which netted nearly $14,000 from monks and nuns -- many of whom barely spoke English, couldn't recall donating to Locke, or were out of the country and could never be located. Of the known temple donors identified by the Locke campaign, five gave $1,000 each on July 22, 1996 -- paid in sequentially ordered cashier's checks. Two priests gave $1,000 and $1,100 respectively on Aug. 8, 1996. Three other temple adherents also gave $1,000 contributions on Aug. 8. Internal campaign records show that two other temple disciples donated $2,000 and $1,000 respectively on other dates. State campaign finance investigators failed to track down some of the donors during their probe.

But while investigating the story for the Seattle Times, I interviewed temple donor Siu Wai Wong, a bald, robed 40-year-old priest who could not remember when or by what means he had given a $1,000 contribution to Locke. He also refused to say whether he was a U.S. citizen, explaining that his "English (was) not so good." Although an inept state campaign-finance panel absolved Locke and his campaign of any wrongdoing, the extensive public record clearly shows that the Locke campaign used Buddhist monks as conduits for laundered money.

The longtime reluctance to press Locke -- who became a high-powered attorney specializing in China trade issues for international law firm Davis, Wright & Tremaine after leaving the governor's mansion -- on his reckless, ethnic-based fundraising will undoubtedly extend to the politically correct and cowed Beltway. Supporters are now touting Locke's cozy relations with the Chinese government as a primary reason he deserves the Commerce Department post. Yet another illustration of how "Hope and Change" is just another synonym for "Screw Up, Move Up."

Biotech experts gather at the White House for ‘Summit on America’s Bioeconomy’

Federal officials discuss America’s bioeconomy during a White House summit. (OSTP Photo via Twitter) More than 100 biotech researchers, industry executives and government officials met at the White House today for a summit focusing on America’s bioeconomy — the range of products, services and data derived from biological processes and bioscience research. “The bioeconomy is already an integral part of the general economy,” White House chief technology officer Michael Kratsios told the attendees. “In 2017, revenues from engineered biological systems reached nearly $400 billion.” He cited figures from SynBioBeta suggesting that the private sector alone invested more than $3.7 billion in early-stage biological engineering and manufacturing tech companies during 2018. “But we are not only here because of what biotechnology has done — we are invested in what biotechnology is going to do,” Kratsios said. For example, in 2017 the Food and Drug Administration approved the first treatment that makes use of CAR-T immunotherapy to fight leukemia. CAR-T — that is, chimeric antigen receptor T-cells — involves the use of genetic engineering to help a patient’s own immune cells kill off cancer cells more effectively. Several Seattle institutions , including the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, are leaders in the field. Kratsios also cited the example of Project Medusa , a Pentagon-backed experiment that uses bacterial processes to harde

Something's been missing from Michigan gamedays since the free programs ceased being economically viable: scientific gameday predictions that are not at all preordained by the strictures of a column in which one writer takes a positive tack and the other a negative one… something like Punt-Counterpunt.

PUNT

By Bryan MacKenzie
@Bry_Mac

My bad.

Life doesn’t always stop for college football Saturdays, and like despite my best planning, I occasionally find myself with unavoidable conflicts. When I was younger, there wasn’t much to be done. If you had a thing, you missed the game. You could catch the score later by watching Sportscenter for 30 minutes, or you could get back to your home or dorm to your Gateway 2000 to see those scores loading, one at a time, at 28.8 kbps. That was how I watched Michigan/Michigan State in 2002; I saw a score, and I said, “cool,” and that was it.

clip_image001

Adjusted for inflation, that equals nearly $372,000.

Then smart phones came along. The early ones they didn’t provide much more than a score, a clock, and if you were lucky a down-and-distance, they allowed you to take the game with you. I ‘watched’ Tate Forcier shred Notre Dame in 2011 on my Blackberry in the back of a wedding reception.

[After THE JUMP: clickbait.]

But DVR changed the game. Now you can delay the start of the game by a minute, an hour, or a day. This created a choice that we didn’t have before: do I try to go radio-silent and start the game later, or do I start watching it live whenever I can?

Like many of you, I have taken both approaches. But having looked a little deeper, I fear my decisions to DVR Michigan games have been detrimental to the point of disaster. Consider:

  • October 27, 2012: The Tigers were in the World Series, and I wanted to watch Game 3 with co-workers. So I recorded the Michigan/Nebraska game. It was the last time Denard Robinson started at quarterback for the University of Michigan. The Tigers lost 2-0, and eventually got swept. Everything was bad.

  • October 4, 2014: Gary Nova. I don’t want to talk about it. Has it really been five years, Gary?
  • November 8th, 2014: I had a social engagement with my wife, and Michigan’s season was already well into its final collapse, so I recorded the game between Michigan and Northwestern. That game took a combined 3,746,121 years off our collective lives, though my soul ached on about a three hour delay from the rest of you.

clip_image002

  • October 3, 2015. Had a family engagement in the morning (noon games kick off at 11:00 here), and missed most of the first half of the Maryland game. Michigan was a significant favorite, but their first 6 drives went punt, fumble, fumble, missed field goal, barely-made field goal on a short field, three-and-out. Things stabilize upon my return, and Michigan cruised to a 28-0 win.
  • September 16, 2017. I ran a Tough Mudder that started in the late morning, so I recorded the Air Force game. Sorry, Tarik.

This takes us to this year, and the part where I apologize. See, my son is on a 7/8-year-old baseball team (Go Lake Monsters), and I’m one of the coaches. The games start anywhere between 9:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. central. Thus far this year, I’ve been able to see all of MTSU and Rutgers, but I missed the first half of Army and Wisconsin. And as you may recall, those first halves did not go particularly well.

And this is the really bad part: I’m going to have to miss almost the entire game today. And this is the really really bad part: I’m gonna record the game.

See, there are too few of these opportunities in a season. I used to enjoy watching the game because I enjoyed watching the game. More and more, it feels like every week has become about the result, and whether a Michigan win will keep Twitter from melting down, keep the chattering class of omnipresent pundits from jabbering in my general direction. I want to get back to that place where it isn’t about the outcome for the outcome’s sake, but rather where it is about enjoying a hobby because the hobby is enjoyable. And that starts, I think, with watching the game.

clip_image003

If you all feel the need to chase me down like Coleman Reese in the Dark Knight in the interest of the Greater Good, I fully understand. Perhaps finding me and spoiling the score will avenge the football gods. Perhaps more serious measures need to be taken. Perhaps simply acknowledging the curse is enough to lift it. Or maybe there's some sort of animal we could make a sacrifice to. Like a giant buffalo. Or some sort of monster like something like the body of a walrus with the head of a sea lion. Or something with the body of an egret with the head of a meerkat. Or just the head of a monkey with the antlers of a reindeer with the body of a porcupine. I don’t know. Curses can be finnicky. But I made it a point last year to insist that there is no such thing as ghosts, and I think Michigan is the better team.

Good luck, and happy hunting. I’ll catch up with y’all around the fourth quarter. Michigan 27, Iowa 13

COUNTERPUNT

By Internet Raj
@internetraj

 

YO WHAT UP FOOLS WELCOME TO THIS WEEK’S COUNTERPUNT BROUGHT TO YOU BY ZIP RECRUITER, SEATGEEK, AND KRAFT EASY MAC.

IF YOU’RE WONDERING WHY THERE HAS BEEN A SUDDEN SHIFT IN TONE, STYLE, OVERALL QUALITY, AND CAPITALIZATION IN THIS WEEK’S EDITION, DON’T WORRY ONE BIT, BROSKIS (THAT’S SOMETHING DRAKE SAYS). YOU MIGHT HAVE HEARD ABOUT THIS WEEK’S REORGANIZATION OF SPORTS ILLUSTRATED WHEREIN ITS OWNERS CAPITULATED TO THIS REALLY RAD MEDIA STARTUP, THEMAVEN, WHICH IS DEFINITELY NOT A ‘WANNABE TECH COMPANY” OPERATED BY DUMB, INDEFENSIBLE HUCKSTERS.

NO, THIS IS NOW THE FUTURE OF SPORTS WRITING. NO MORE SUBSTANTIVE, DELIBERATIVE, AND INCISIVE ANALYSIS. INSTEAD, JUST A RANDOM VERBAL SPLATTER PAINTING OF SEO-OPTIMIZED KEYWORDS THAT HAPPEN TO BE TRENDING AT THE TIME. JIM HARBAUGH. HOT SEAT. FIRED. KIM KARDASHIAN.

WELL, IT PLEASES US TO ANNOUNCE THAT THE “COUNTERPUNT” COLUMN AND ALL OF THE COPYRIGHTS, TRADEMARKS, IMAGES AND PROPERTY RELATED TO THE “COUNTERPUNT” BRAND HAVE BEEN IRREVOCABLY SOLD TO THEMAVEN. MOVING FORWARD, THIS COLUMN WILL NOW BE WRITTEN BY THEMAVEN’S NETWORK OF BARELY-PAID AND VERY HUNGRY (I’M SO HUNGRY) CONTRIBUTORS. EXPECT A LOT LESS WRITING AND A LOT MORE COMPLETELY OUT-OF-CONTEXT SLIDESHOWS, EMBEDDED TWEETS AS A SUBSTITUTE FOR SUBSTANCE, DECEPTIVE SPONSORED ADS MASQUERADING AS JOURNALISTIC CONTENT, AND OTHER SHORTCUTS TO COMPENSATE FOR ACTUAL WRITING. BASICALLY, EXPECT ELEVEN WARRIORS. ALSO CAPS LOCK. OF COURSE, IT SHOULD COME AS NO SURPRISE THAT THE OLD BORING ASS WASHED UP BUM WRITER RAJ HAS BEEN TERMINATED FROM MGOBLOG.

clip_image002[5]

Expect more fun interactive content like this in future Counterpunts. I don’t know what grilled cheese I am but Kirk Ferentz is definitely the one that starts spontaneously oozing when its fourth-and-1 in plus territory

ANYWAYS, THIS GAME IS GOING TO… HOLD ON, LET ME LOG ON TO OUR PROPRIETARY IN-HOUSE ALGORITHMIC DATABASE OF COOL SAYINGS THAT OUR ANALYTICS SHOW GENERATE THE MOST ENGAGEMENT… “SLAP DIFFERENT”. YES THIS GAME WILL “SLAP DIFFERENT” AND I DON’T MEAN THE MSU BASKETBALL TEAM ACTUALLY MAKING A DEFENSIVE STOP. OOPS SORRY, THAT LAST CORNY PART WAS A JOKE WE WERE CONTRACTUALLY OBLIGATED TO INCLUDE PER RAJ’S MGOBLOG SEVERANCE.

OK:  MICHIGAN VERSUS IOWA. CAN’T BELIEVE IT. THAT’S PRETTY MUCH ALL I HAVE TO SAY BECAUSE I DIDN’T HAVE TOO MUCH TIME TO RESEARCH THE GAME BECAUSE I’VE BEEN IN A WINDOWLESS ROOM CHURNING OUT MEANINGLESS CONTENT FOR THE LAST 20 HOURS WITH ONLY ONE 2 MINUTE MEAL BREAK THAT WASN’T EVEN ENOUGH TIME TO HEAT UP MY EASY MAC IN THE MICROWAVE AND THE NOODLES DIDN’T COOK ALL THE WAY AND I ACTUALLY CHIPPED A TOOTH BITING DOWN ON A RAW-ASS EASY MAC NOODLE. UNFORTUNATELY, I DON’T HAVE ANY SORT OF DENTAL OR HEALTH INSURANCE BUT DON’T WORRY ABOUT ME I’M MAKING A WHOLE 9 CENTS FOR EVERY WORD I PRODUCE HERE, WHICH WILL GO A LONG WAY TO PAYING DOWN THE $250,000 IN DEBT I TOOK ON TO GET MY ENGLISH LITERATURE DEGREE AT NYU.

WHOO SORRY ABOUT THAT DETOUR THIS COLUMN TOOK. I THINK THAT’S THE HUNGER-INDUCED DELIRIUM THAT HAS WASHED OVER MY ENTIRE CONSCIOUSNESS. DID I MENTION ALL I’VE HAD IN THE PAST 24 HOURS WAS 7 EASY MAC NOODLES? OK WELL, TO THE GAME. MICHIGAN VS. IOWA. WOW. WHAT A GAME. LET’S LOOK AT THE ONLY ANALYTICS THAT MATTER: ACCORDING TO THE COLD, DETACHED CORPORATE RESEARCH CONDUCTED BY EMPTY SUITS WHO NOW CONTROL LARGE SWATHS OF IMPORTANT JOURNALISM, 76% OF YOU HAVE SKIPPED OVER EVERY WORD ABOVE TO GET TO THIS PART, THE END, THE SCORE PREDICTION. I’VE BEEN TOLD THIS IS WHERE THE MOST LUCRATIVE ADS AND IN-TEXT PRODUCT PLACEMENT GO, SO I ENCOURAGE YOU TO TRY ON A NEW PAIR OF MEUNDIES (PROMO CODE: “PLEASEUSETHISPROMOCODEBECAUSEIFYOUDOIGET5DOLLARSANDICOULDBUYME2MOREEASYMACSYESTHISISREALLYALLPARTOFTHEPROMOCODEEVENTHISEXTRAPART”).

SO WHO’S GOING TO WIN? WELL THIS IS A MICHIGAN FAN SITE SO TO OPTIMIZE CLICKS AND ONLINE ENGAGEMENT, I WILL NATURALLY PICK THE NON-MICHIGAN TEAM TO WIN. YOU’RE ALL GOING TO BE ANGRY AND COMMENT AND CLICK A LOT, AND WHILE I WON’T SEE A DIME FROM THOSE AD-GENERATED REVENUES, AT LEAST SOME DISEMBODIED PROFIT SUCKING CORPORATE VAMPIRE WILL.

HERE'S AN AUTOPLAY VIDEO DON’T WORRY I MADE SURE YOUR SYSTEM VOLUME IS ON MAX.

MICHIGAN: 99 IOWA: 100 A COLD REFRESHING BUDLIGHT: 101

I too have found myself watching more and more games on delay, mostly because of family responsibilities (dance class waits for no one!).  So I get it.  I'll probably watch part of this game at the start and then be off to something in the afternoon.  I catch up with the DVR and it's actually a bit less stressful because I know the outcome, but it can be infuriating knowing what will happen and, at times, seeing all the opportunities where it didn't need to happen.  Like how I assume Doctor Strange felt during Infinity Wars.

As for Raj, the fact this post looks not unlike what a lot of Fansided/SBNation/Bleacher Report/etc. sites churn out is depressing.  SI should be a held to a higher standard.  Hell, the Athletic has started down this road and that was supposed to be the Tech Bro version of the sports journalism that still employed journalists.  

Anyway, Michigan wins.  It'll be not-fun for a while, but they should win.

October 5th, 2019 at 8:51 AM ^

I watch virtually every game on delay.  

Negatives:

Can't participate in the oh-so enlightening banter in the open thread

Have to turn phone off until game over or caught up time wise

Pros:

No commercials

No halftime

Can watch when I want

If Michigan is pummelling someone (like Rutgers) I can get to the good parts quickly 

If Michigan is getting pummelled (like Wisconsin) I can fast forward to see if we've caught up any and if not, turn it off 

And Raj's column is fucking genius. Great, great job.

I loved SI back in the late 60’s through maybe the 80’s.  Then it started to slide and lose its focus on sports people cared about.  Then it stopped writing thoughtful, in depth pieces.  Somewhere along the way, I stopped reading it.  But this latest iteration makes the lousy SI of 2000 sound like Pulitzer Prize winning stuff.

Sheed In Space

October 5th, 2019 at 9:29 AM ^

Agreed. 
 

I have to watch it live, or not at all. I’ll be missing most of today’s game to go get shithoused with thousands of my Polish-American brethren at dingy Polish halls around Grand Rapids, most of which do not have TVs. 
 

My gut feeling says it may be a blessing in disguise that I’ll be too drunk to function, but that might just be the BPONE talking.

Bryan: I have to watch the game on tape because when I watch live, bad things happen. I attended The Horror, I was in Columbus for TGWW-BD (The Game We Won—But Didn't), not to mention two Rose Bowls we lost.

I watch every game on delay even when I don't have to, like today. That way I can fast forward past the commercials. If I give the game a good 45 minute head start I still run into live action by the forth quarter sometimes. I would not do this if there were only a moderate amount of commercials. But the score-commercial-kick off-commercial and 4th down-commercial-punt-commercial patterns have become too much for me.

Also, Raj's post made me sad. I know some young adjunct professors who do that type of "content writing" to supplement their income and between the two jobs they make less than a waiter and receive no benefits.

I don't even find watching the game that enjoyable anymore. The mid-game and post-game hot takes online and among friends are (a) too much of the experience now to miss and (b) simultaneously fun and infuriating. Live sports feeds my Twitter addiction. But to watch the game without the live analysis, the puns and jokes, the complaining about the announces and referees and players and coaches, it's underwhelming to me now.

Engineer: Ethiopian Airlines went into records after crash

 Cache   
SEATTLE – Ethiopian Airlines’ former chief engineer says in a whistleblower complaint filed with regulators that the carrier went into the maintenance records on a Boeing 737 Max jet a day after it crashed this year, a breach he contends was part of a pattern of corruption that included fabricating documents, signing off on shoddy repairs and even beating those who got out of line.

Yonas Yeshanew, who resigned this summer and is seeking asylum in the U.S., said that while it is unclear what, if anything, in the records was altered, the decision to go into them at all when they should have been sealed reflects a government-owned airline with few boundaries and plenty to hide.

“The brutal fact shall be exposed ... Ethiopian Airlines is pursuing the vision of expansion, growth and profitability by compromising safety,” Yeshanew said in his report, which he gave to The Associated Press after sending it last month to the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration and other international air safety agencies.

Yeshanew’s criticism of Ethiopian’s maintenance practices, backed by three other former employees who spoke to AP, makes him the latest voice urging investigators to take a closer look at potential human factors in the Max saga and not just focus on Boeing’s faulty anti-stall system, which has been blamed in two crashes in four months.

It’s not a coincidence, he said, that Ethiopian saw one of its Max planes go down when many other airlines that fly the plane suffered no such tragedy.

Ethiopian Airlines portrayed Yeshanew as a disgruntled former employee and categorically denied his allegations, which paint a blistering counterpoint to the perception of the airline as one of Africa’s most successful companies and a source of national pride.

Yeshanew alleged in his report and interviews with AP that Ethiopian is growing too fast and struggling to keep planes in the air now that it is carrying 11 million passengers a year, four times what it was handling a decade ago, including flights to Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington and Newark, New Jersey. He said mechanics are overworked and pressed to take shortcuts to get planes cleared for takeoff, while pilots are flying on too little rest and not enough training.

And he produced an FAA audit from three years ago that found, among dozens of other problems, that nearly all of the 82 mechanics, inspectors and supervisors whose files were reviewed lacked the minimum requirements for doing their jobs.

Yeshanew included emails showing he urged top executives for years to end a practice at the airline of signing off on maintenance and repair jobs that he asserts were done incompletely, incorrectly or not at all. He said he stepped up his efforts following the Oct. 29, 2018, crash of a Lion Air Boeing 737 Max in Indonesia that killed all 189 people on board. One email Yeshanew sent to CEO Tewolde Gebremariam urged him to “personally intervene” to stop mechanics from falsifying records.

Those pleas were ignored, he said. And after the March 10, 2019, nosedive crash of an Ethiopian Boeing 737 Max outside Addis Ababa that killed all 157 people on board, Yeshanew said it was clear the mindset had not changed.

Yeshanew said in an interview that on the day after the crash, Ethiopian’s Chief Operating Officer Mesfin Tasew openly agonized that the airline could get blamed because of its maintenance “issues” and “violations,” and he ordered that records on the downed Max plane be checked for “mistakes.”

“We pray to God that this will not point to our fault,” Yeshanew quoted the COO as saying.

That same day, Yeshanew said in his report, someone logged into the computerized maintenance record-keeping system, specifically on the records from the downed plane that detailed a flight-control problem – “a roll to the right” – that pilots had reported three months earlier. Yeshanew included in his report a screenshot of a directory of the records related to the problem that showed a final entry that was time-stamped March 11.

Yeshanew said he didn’t know what was in the records previously or if they were changed, only that the records were left to say that tests had been done and the issue had been resolved. While he doubted that the flight-control problem brought the plane down, he said any changes to the records would call into question the actual condition of the airplane at the time of the crash as well as the integrity of the airline as a whole.

Aviation experts say that after a crash, maintenance records – specifically, log books and task cards containing notes by pilots and fixes by mechanics – are required by international air safety regulators to be immediately sealed off, and any attempt to manipulate them is a serious violation tantamount to trampling on a crime scene.

“If there is an accusation that you went into records, it means you’re hiding something, you have something to hide,” said John Goglia, a former member of the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board and an expert in aircraft maintenance.

In its response to AP, Ethiopian denied a history of tampering and shoddy maintenance, and denied its COO or anyone else ordered someone to change the maintenance records on the downed 737 Max. It said that as soon as the accident happened, those documents were sealed, stored in a secure place and delivered to Ethiopia’s Aircraft Accident Investigation Bureau. It added that while “a technician tried to see the aircraft records,” its review found no data was changed or updated.

Ethiopian is Africa’s biggest airline, is profitable and is one of only a few on the continent that have passed the tests necessary to allow their planes to fly into Europe and North America, with a relatively good safety record.

The company confirmed Yeshanew served as director of aircraft engineering and planning but said he was demoted because of a “serious weaknesses in leadership, discipline and poor integrity.”

“He is a disgruntled ex-employee who fabricated a false story about Ethiopian Airlines, partly to revenge for his demotion while working in Ethiopian, and partly to probably develop a case to secure asylum in the USA,” the airline said in an email to AP. “We would like to confirm once more that all his allegations are false and baseless.”

Yeshanew and his attorney, Darryl Levitt, said that he was never demoted and, in fact, his steady rise through the ranks over a 12-year career at Ethiopian continued even into this year when he was tapped to oversee a new venture making aircraft parts and investigate two pilots who botched a landing in Uganda and nearly skidded into Lake Victoria. Yeshanew said his recommendations after that incident – fewer inexperienced pilots in cockpits and better training – went unheeded.

Yeshanew also attached internal emails to the report that he contends show faulty paperwork and repairs, and investigations from parts suppliers that point to similar errors, including ones that led to two cockpit windows shattering in flight, a de-icing mechanism burning, and missing or incorrect bolts on key sensors.

“I personally saw that many task cards are signed without even doing what is written in the instruction,” Yeshanew wrote to COO Tasew in 2017. “Such violations may even result in a serious safety issue.”

Others have made similar claims. In 2015, an anonymous employee told an FAA safety hotline that mechanics often cleared planes for takeoff with “unresolved” mechanical issues. It was unclear if the complaint led to any action by the FAA or the airline.

Three other former Ethiopian employees made such allegations to AP, including one who provided documents that he said show faulty repairs and paperwork errors stretching back years, and another who said mechanics felt they had no choice but to “pencil whip it” – industry jargon for signing off on repairs never done.

“They would actually lie about it,” said Franz Rasmussen, who flew for the airline for two years before leaving in 2016. “There was a philosophy: You can’t ground an airplane – it’s go, go, go.”

Among the allegations in Yeshanew’s report is that Ethiopian maintains a jail-like detention center on the grounds of its Addis Ababa headquarters that it used to interrogate, intimidate and sometimes beat up employees who got out of line. Yeshanew said he knows of at least two mechanics beaten up in the past three years after falling out of favor with the company, and he feared the same fate awaited him.

Yeshanew said in the report and later interviews with AP that he was taken to the single-story, dirt-floored detention center in July on suspicion he was talking to news organizations, and after 10 hours of questioning was told he would be thrown into jail “like all the other persons before” him if he didn’t keep quiet. He took that as a threat of torture.

“If you are in jail, it means you’ll be beaten, you will be tortured,” he told AP. “There is no difference in the current political system of Ethiopia.”

Four days later, Yeshanew fled to the U.S. with this wife and two children and settled in the Seattle area.

A former spokesman for the airline union, Bekele Dumecha, told AP that he met with more than a dozen workers over six years who had been beaten at the same detention center, including one of the alleged victims identified by Yeshanew. Dumecha said he saw that person an hour after he was released, bruised and staggering.

“He couldn’t walk properly,” said Dumecha, who is now living in Minnesota and also seeking asylum. “He was mentally and physically destroyed.”

Human Rights Watch said in an April report that torture in jails and “unmarked detention centers” have long been a “serious and underreported problem” in Ethiopia, and its former researcher there said he personally interviewed three airline workers who alleged they were tortured by the government, the most recent three years ago.

“It was all about ensuring the positive image of the company and the country is kept intact,” said HRW researcher Felix Horne. “Many people who tried to speak out against government-controlled companies were inevitably thrown in prison and beaten up.”

In its statement, Ethiopian Airlines denied that a detention center for torture exists and offered to show an AP reporter around the grounds. But after AP sought such a tour this past week, Ethiopian officials said it would take several weeks to arrange.

Yeshanew’s allegations are the latest to cast a light on factors other than what has become the overriding focus of the Max crash investigations – a system on the plane called MCAS, for Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System, that automatically pushes the plane’s nose down when it is at risk of stalling.

Preliminary reports indicate it misfired in both fatal crashes, with pilots losing control of the planes as they fought against it. Regulators have grounded nearly 400 737 Max planes while Boeing tries to fix the problem.

Another whistleblower from Ethiopian, veteran pilot Bernd Kai von Hoesslin, told the AP in May that after Indonesia’s Lion Air crash, he pleaded with Ethiopian’s top executives to give pilots better training on the Max, predicting that if pilots are not sufficiently drilled on Boeing’s protocols for how to disable the autopilot system in the event of a misfire, “it will be a crash for sure.”

Ethiopian has said the pilots followed all the steps Boeing laid out. But the preliminary report on the crash showed they deviated from the directives and made other mistakes, notably flying the plane at an unusually high speed and inexplicably reactivating the anti-stall system shortly after manually overriding it. Six minutes into the Max flight, the plane with passengers from nearly a dozen countries cratered into the ground about 40 miles from the airport.

For the 39-year-old Yeshanew, the decision to become a whistleblower has come at a heavy price. He is leaving behind relatives and a job that he called “the dream of my life,” one with prestige and a big enough salary for him to buy a three-story house. He is not sure of what kind of job he can get in the U.S., or if he will even be granted asylum.

Ultimately, he said, he has dreams of returning to his native Ethiopia and even going back to work at Ethiopian Airlines.

“I have to reveal the truth, the reality to the world, so that the airline will be fixed,” he said, “because it can’t continue like what it is doing now.”

‘Big Bad Trusts’ Are a Progressive Myth

Today’s tech titans, like yesterday’s industrial giants, will diminish in time thanks to competition

The resurgence of progressivism in America has brought growing support for a return to Progressive-era trustbusting. Sen. Elizabeth Warren has a plan to break up tech companies like Google, Amazon and Facebook. Berkeley professor Robert Reich, once the resident progressive of the Clinton administration, opines, “Like the robber barons of the first Gilded Age, those of the second”—the tech giants—“have amassed fortunes because of their monopolies.” Even in Amazon’s hometown of Seattle, a newspaper headline declares, “Big tech needs to face a Theodore Roosevelt -style trust busting.”

According to progressive legend, when trusts and cartels in the late 19th century exploited consumers, trustbusters rode to the rescue. Today’s progressives are ready to reincarnate yesteryear’s remedies. The problem with this narrative is that it has little basis in fact.

If the Gilded Age was plagued by anticompetitive behavior, the data should show output falling and prices rising in monopolized industries. In a 1985 study, economist Thomas DiLorenzo tested this hypothesis for industries accused of being monopolistic during the debate on the Sherman Antitrust Act of 1890. He found that output in those industries actually increased by an average of 175% from 1880-90—seven times the growth rate of real gross national product. On average, prices in the so-called monopolized industries fell three times as fast as the consumer-price index. When it comes to the progressive itch to attack large firms, a famous line comes to mind: “Ignorance lies not in the things you don’t know, but in the things you know that ain’t so!”

Steel output grew by 242% from 1880-90, but during the 10 years after the Sherman Act, it grew by only 135%. Other “monopolized” industries with large differences in growth rates in the decades before and after the Sherman Act include copper (330% vs. 133%), petroleum (74% vs. 39%), refined sugar (65% vs. 48%) and cigars and cigarettes (121% vs. 40%).

Prices tell a similar story. On average, in the industries for which data are available, inflation-adjusted prices fell at a faster rate, or rose at a slower rate, in the decade before the Sherman Act than in the decade after it. The real price of steel rails fell by 43% from 1880-90, but fell by only 0.7% from 1890 to 1900. The wholesale price of sugar fell 22.4% from 1880-90 but fell by only 6.1% from 1890-1900. A similar pattern played out for copper, pig iron and anthracite coal.

In reality, the turn of the 20th century was an era of vigorous industrial competition driven by the implementation of new technologies, new sources of supply, and improved management. Economies of scale produced industrial concentration. Most of the trusts and cartels that subsequently formed to keep out competition gradually failed without any government intervention.

The history of the American Sugar Refining trust, which formed in 1887, illustrates this pattern. The Sugar Trust had only fleeting success at limiting production or raising prices over the ensuing 20 years. U.S. refined-sugar production more than doubled from 1887 to 1907. Despite the trust’s efforts to keep them out, competitors built factories and undercut its prices in less time than it took to prosecute a major antitrust lawsuit. In 1893, when the Grover Cleveland administration filed its first Sherman antitrust suit against American Sugar, the margin between the prices of raw and refined sugar was 1.15 cents a pound. By the time the Supreme Court decided the case in 1895, new competitors had driven the margin down to 0.88 cent a pound—a 23% decrease.

Unlike the trusts, tariffs and regulations actually succeeded in squelching competition in the Gilded Age. Standard Oil benefited from tariffs on oil and refined products. Henry Havemeyer, the first president of American Sugar, stated at a congressional hearing in 1899 that “the mother of all trusts is the customs tariff bill. . . . Without the tariff, I doubt if we should have dared to take the risk of forming the trust.”

The first legislative action of the trustbusting era came with the establishment of the Interstate Commerce Commission in 1887 to regulate rail freight rates. Economist George Hilton and historian Gabriel Kolko found that railroads supported federal regulation because their attempts to stabilize rates through cartels had repeatedly failed. Real rail freight revenues fell 17.7% per ton-mile from 1870-90. The Interstate Commerce Act banned price rebates, the mechanism the overbuilt railroad system had used to reduce prices. When trucks began to compete with the railroads, Congress brought trucking under ICC regulation. Whatever its initial impact or intent, over time evidence mounted that transportation regulation actually impeded competition.

By the 1970s, the anticompetitive effects of economic regulation, especially in transportation, were acknowledged by progressives from Ralph Nader to economist Alfred Kahn. In the greatest deregulatory effort of the 20th century, President Jimmy Carter led the opening of competition in the railroad, airline and trucking industries. Peer-reviewed economic studies have consistently shown that the transportation deregulation of the Carter era produced significant price reductions and improvements in service.

The rise of Big Tech is virtually a replay of the rise of scale-driven industrialization at the turn of the 20th century. We’ve seen rapid growth of large firms fueled by technological innovation and economies of scale accompanied by declining prices. This time around, extraordinarily, the new “monopolies” are giving many of their products away.

There are legitimate policy concerns involving Big Tech, such as claims of censorship. But history shows little evidence that breaking up big tech companies or regulating them as monopolies will benefit consumers. Before policy makers repeat the failed experiments of the past, they should determine whether trustbusting is really about protecting consumers or merely about expanding the power of government.

Book Review: ‘Order Without Design,’ by Alain Bertaud

An Urban Planner Describes the Flaws of His Profession

Who should run cities, economists or urban planners? This is a trick question: the answer is that neither group can fully know how to run such complex systems. But if planner Alain Bertaud had to choose, he’d vote against his own profession.

In his recent book Order without Design: How Markets Shape Cities, Bertaud writes that planners have largely botched urban growth worldwide, and should approach it by using more insights from economics. For decades, Bertaud has trotted the world to study and help plan cities himself. He worked first for the United Nations, then the World Bank, then as a private consultant. He’s now a research scholar at NYU, where he’s learned from that school’s renowned economists.

Economics would be useful to planners, he writes, because it’s scientific. It uses technical, real-world data to create models on how cities behave, and how they would behave if given variables change. This means economists can better understand markets, predict outcomes, and determine best practices based on a defined set of goals.

Planners, by contrast, are “normative”, meaning they shape their premises not through empiricism, but norms and fads from their micro-culture. Their use of terms like “quality of life”, “neighborhood character”, “livability,” and “sustainability” are not technical, but derive from how they and their peers subjectively define these words. This means that planners depend on truisms and pseudo-science to shape policy.

One example Bertaud describes comes from his time spent in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, which in the 1970s was exploding in population, as rural Haitians migrated there to escape poverty. Bertaud was part of a team of U.N. bureaucrats who visited the city to advise on its growth. Many of his colleagues thought the growth should be dispersed nationwide, rather than concentrating in Port-au-Prince.

“At the time,” writes Bertaud, “planners were debating about the optimum size of cities, usually advocating for a size between half a million and a million people.”

Yet the economics literature had already debunked this notion. Economists back then were saying (as they do now) that cities get more productive the more they grow, due to agglomeration benefits, and there was no reason to cap population at one million people. Bertaud didn’t understand these benefits until he met an economist for the first time, while in Haiti. From then on, he became convinced that economists should have a bigger role in educating planners.

If that happened, planners would then be less prone to view cities as tabula rasas that should be designed based on their own cultural tastes, and more prone to view cities as what they actually are: labor markets. This “cities as labor markets” theory is the second big premise of Bertaud’s book.

A city’s fundamental raison d’etre is that it’s where people go to find jobs. Cities grow based on their ability to provide economic opportunity, and decline if that opportunity vanishes. The key role planners should play is not to choose which industries bolster these labor markets, but to set the conditions for growth, by allowing the development of housing and transportation that lets people access and expand these labor markets. Housing and transportation is where Bertaud thinks planners could better apply economic thinking. For example, rather than mandating zoning laws that are arbitrary and fixed, planners should observe the price signals in their markets, and use it as feedback to adjust the zoning. Every few years, zoning regulations should be subject to cost-benefit analyses, to ensure they’re accomplishing their stated goal, not just inflicting financial hardship and high home prices.

For transportation, planners should ignore their preconceived biases about the “right” transport modes and layouts, and instead focus on what will actually shorten commutes and improve mobility. This too can be done through price signals – namely tolls and congestion charging – that more efficiently delineate road space and ease traffic flow. Whether or not this leads to the overwhelming use of rails, buses, carpools or single-occupancy vehicles will vary by city, and depend on how those respective modes are priced.

One flaw of Order Without Design is that Bertaud never really defines “planner”, which causes him to isolate planners for unfair blame. Globally speaking, planners from the U.N. or federal governments may have power over land-use decisions. But in the U.S., policy is made less by professional planners—who graduated from planning schools and have AICP certification—than by politicians. The anti-economic thinking that drives our land-use policy is really more a reflection of the American people and who they vote for than of urban planners, who are largely powerless (if still misguided) advisors.

But the basic message of Bertaud’s book holds. Cities are often viewed and treated like aesthetic or cultural objects, rather than labor markets where people go to work. Their housing and transport grids are planned as such, ignoring this functional role of cities. Introducing economics to the urbanization process would help solve the problems now common in cities worldwide.

Jeff Jacoby: Instead of resurrecting the 'People's Pledge,' let's bury it for good

REPRESENTATIVE JOE KENNEDY, the youngest member of the Massachusetts congressional delegation, announced last week that he would run against Senator Ed Markey, the oldest member, because, he said, "I've got new ideas and a new approach." Really? In nearly seven years in Congress, Kennedy has emitted few whiffs of originality or unconventional thinking. Why would that change if he replaced Markey in the Senate? In any case, as skeptics promptly pointed out, on political issues there are no meaningful differences between the two left-wing Democrats.

As if to validate the skepticism, Kennedy's first big campaign proposal, delivered in a press release on Tuesday, was a so-called People's Pledge to keep third-party advertising out of the Senate race. That was anything but a new idea: Markey had proposed the exact same thing when he first ran for the Senate in 2013 — and he was only recycling a gimmick from the race between Elizabeth Warren and Scott Brown a year earlier.

But the People's Pledge isn't just a tired, old idea. It's a tired, old, bad idea. It is arrogant and antidemocratic, and its purpose is to squelch free speech — in particular, the form of speech most valued in the American constitutional system: speech about politics, candidates, elections, and issues.

Kennedy wants his rivals (who include attorney Shannon Liss-Riordan and businessman Steve Pemberton, in addition to Markey) to repudiate in advance any "outside" advertising — that is, any advertising from any source other than the candidates' own campaigns. The purpose of the "People's Pledge" is to put teeth into that repudiation. It provides that if an outside organization spends money on TV, radio, or online ads in support of any candidate in the race, the campaign being helped would pay a penalty: It would have to donate half the value of the ad buy to a charity named by the other campaign. Political groups wanting to weigh in on the Massachusetts Senate fight would thus be dissuaded, since the more they spent to assist any candidate, the more cash that candidate would have to forfeit.

Warren and Brown were extravagantly praised when they agreed to this arrangement in 2012. Their pledge was welcomed as a victory for "civility," and the candidates were awarded props for coming up with a way to reduce the influence of money on their high-profile Senate race.

But the "People's Pledge" proved a bust. When all was said and done, the 2012 Brown/Warren race, far from restoring civility to politics, was among the nation's nastiest. And the candidates' agreement did nothing to diminish the importance of money. According to the Center for Responsive Politics, the Brown and Warren battle turned out to be the most expensive Senate campaign in the country. As Rosie Gray reported in BuzzFeed, Brown and Warren's much-admired pledge "appears to have accomplished roughly the opposite of its goal."

So when Markey, running for the Senate a year later, attempted to revive the pledge, his Republican opponent sensibly declined. When Secretary of State Bill Galvin tried the same ploy during his reelection fight in 2018, his Democratic challenger, calling it an "empty gesture," likewise refused.

Now that he's facing a serious challenge to his Senate seat, Markey no longer seems quite so enamored of the idea that third-party advertising should be kept out of the race. His campaign manager agreed only to "review the proposal" made by Kennedy. It's hard to imagine that Markey, facing the toughest reelection fight of his career, will spurn the help of independent groups. One such group, Environment Massachusetts, has already said it will raise $5 million for a campaign "to promote the senator's remarkable record" to the state's voters.

"Remarkable" isn't the word I would choose to describe Markey's congressional career. But if Environment Massachusetts and its supporters want to spend money to sing Markey's praises, why should they be stifled? If the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, which has endorsed Kennedy, wants to run ads promoting his virtues, why shouldn't it do so? For that matter, why should any group with strong opinions about the Senate race – charities, corporations, political parties, advocacy organizations, houses of worship, or simply an ad hoc amalgam of interested citizens – be deterred from weighing in?

The winner of the Massachusetts Senate race will have power to influence the lives and livelihoods of tens of millions of Americans, here in the commonwealth and around the nation. Health care, housing, taxes, immigration, foreign policy, judgeships, war and peace — senators have a say in all of them. Which means that virtually everyone has an interest in who gets elected, and compelling reasons, perhaps, to influence the voters' decision. Should they be silenced? Of course not!

Anyone with something to say about the Massachusetts Senate race should be encouraged to say it. No group with strong views on the issues or the candidates should be denounced for spending money to disseminate those views. Robust political expression is the very quintessence of free speech, and in an election campaign, "outside" and "third party" voices are just as legitimate as those of the candidates themselves.

The "People's Pledge" is a terrible idea. Let's hope we've heard the last of it.

Australia: Evidence of Cardinal Pell's innocence suppressed by the police.  They were always out to "get" him

Cardinal Pell was convicted of pedophilia on uncorroborated evidence

There was an interesting report in The Australian yesterday about two women of irreproachable standing whose testimony was sidelined by Victoria Police during its investigation of George Pell. Inexplicably, the women were not called by the defence. Jean Cornish and Lil Sinozic are not run-of-the-mill observers or blow-ins. Church office-holders and former senior school teachers with a hawkish concern for the safety of children, they were arguably the most authoritative eye-witnesses of all. Like everyone else who was at St Patrick’s Cathedral, they dismiss the claims against Cardinal Pell as impossible nonsense. By now the revelation is not surprising.

At the committal hearing for the case in March 2018, Detective Christopher Reed admitted he didn’t bother taking statements from “nuns, choir members and other church officials which he told the court were favourable to Cardinal Pell.” He also failed to obtain the exact dates the Cardinal presided at mass in 1996. Asked why, under cross-examination by Robert Richter QC, Reed admitted that he executed a warrant at the wrong address. “I didn’t know where the archives were,” he said. It is a concern when a detective in a case of this magnitude doesn’t have the skillset of a Dominoes delivery driver. Surprisingly, Reed and Detective Superintendent Paul Sheridan managed to find their way to Rome to interview Cardinal Pell.

From the start, VicPol’s decisions about whose statements to heed, whose to avoid, who to pursue and who to disregard have been peculiar; some would say suspicious. Remember “the swimmers”? They were the public prosecutor’s B Team. If the “choirboys” failed, the swimmers would be beckoned forth from the red-brick shed of times gone by to regale a second jury with tales of surreptitiously brushed buttocks and sneakily squeezed privates beneath warm waves of sun-drenched, chlorine-flavoured play contemporaneous with the last Shah of Iran. There were, of course, no corroborating witnesses for this malarkey but there were many exculpatory witnesses. Alas for the pool accusers, their case was thrown out by County Court chief judge Peter Kidd in February.

Having hoisted them aloft to make a splash, the ABC (also known as the Keli Lane channel) subsequently abandoned the swimmers. Both video and transcript of its bizarre special on their accusations have been deleted. That’s understandable. As well as actionable, the 7.30 Report episode is embarrassing. The transcript can still be found online, however. If the men were so credible that they merited the combined power and treasuries of the ABC and Victoria Police, why were recollections of “repeated abuse by a female relief teacher” and a “vicious teacher who made him masturbate and perform oral sex” not pursued? Robert Richter asked police if they scorned these allegations (at the high end of seriousness) because officers were only interested in ‘getting’ Pell. “Detective Superintendent Sheridan rejected the assertion, telling the court there could have been a viable explanation.” But he didn’t say, and apparently didn’t know, what it was.

One of three possibilities logically follows: one, the supposed culprits are dead. Two: that Victoria Police allowed two hard-core child rapists to remain unsought so as not to imperil their manic Pell operation. A public failure to find or successfully charge “female relief teacher” and “vicious teacher” would have been fatal to the more banal charges against the Cardinal. Or three: that police concluded the accusations against the mystery teachers were either false or indemonstrable but charged Pell using the complainant duo’s other ‘evidence’ anyway. Whether the latter two scenarios would be justiciable as perversions of the course of justice is for legal officials in Victoria to determine. I’m sure they’ll be all over it any day now.

Were it a leftist beloved of leftists and not Cardinal Pell in solitary confinement – I should say, being tortured in solitary confinement (cf. the UN Special Rapporteur and the ABC, 2014) – the calls for a royal commission would be frenzied and incessant.

American "liberals" often deny being Leftists and say that they are very different from the Communist rulers of  other countries.  The only real difference, however, is how much power they have.  In America, their power is limited by democracy.  To see what they WOULD be like with more power, look at where they ARE already  very powerful: in America's educational system -- particularly in the universities and colleges.  They show there the same respect for free-speech and political diversity that Stalin did:  None.  So look to the colleges to see  what the whole country would be like if "liberals" had their way.  It would be a dictatorship.

MAGA Hat Wearers Harass the Elderly (Kidding, It Was Antifa)

Antifa's special brand of bullying madness has arrived in full force in Canada. Left-wing thugs can be seen on video chanting, "Nazi scum! Off our streets! Nazi scum! Off our streets!" at an elderly couple trying to do nothing more than use a public crosswalk. As you can see, the woman can apparently get around only with the aid of a walker, yet still poses some kind of threat to Antifa.

The reason for Antifa's appearance was to "protest" an event at Mohawk College sponsored by Maxime Bernier, leader of the People’s Party of Canada, and American libertarian political commentator Dave Rubin.

ASIDE: Pardon the scare quotes above, but a in my mind it isn't a protest when you're there to harass private citizens. That's nothing better than a temper tantrum at best.
The local Hamilton Spectator reports that more than 100 Antifa showed up at the sold-out event. The school allowed Sunday's show to go on, despite "concerns" raised by various students and faculty members' about PPC's supposed "far-right" agenda.

Bernier is a former Canadian cabinet member under PM Stephen Harper's Conservative party government, but left to form the PPC last year. Bernier complained that the Conservatives had grown too "intellectually and morally corrupt" to take on "extreme multiculturalism," which he believes creates division among Canadians.

Sunday's event sold out the 1,000-seat McIntyre Art Centre at $50 per ticket. Not a bad showing at a school of 30,000 students, and the extra security the administration had to provide wasn't to keep the conservatives and libertarians in line.

Meanwhile in Seattle, Major League Soccer caved to Antifa hooligans, agreeing to allow the black flag to fly during a Seattle Sounders games at CenturyLink, and elsewhere.

Give in to thugs, get more thuggery.

I was about to say things are going to get ugly, but they already have. The question is, how much uglier we'll let things get before the inevitable backlash.

Another false accusation of abuse from a female

It's been a running gag at Instapundit for years now that if it weren't for fake hate crimes, there'd be hardly any hate crimes at all. So it probably shouldn't come as a huge surprise to learn that yet another fake hate crime allegation has been proven false.

It was all over the major papers late last week, when 12-year-old Amari Allen, a black student, claimed that three white boys held her down and forcibly cut some of her dreadlocks at their Christian school.

Wiser bloggers demurred from covering the story until more information could come to light.

Yet the NYT and other outlets breathlessly reported the sixth-grader's accusation in a phone interview. "They put me on the ground," she claimed. "One of them put my hands behind my back. One put his hands over my mouth. One cut my hair. They were saying that my hair was ugly, that it was nappy." And Twitter was all lit up because of the supposed Mike Pence connection -- his wife Karen teaches at the Immanuel Christian School where the assault never happened.

DailyKos is on it! Let's see if A) They retract this tweet, or B) double down on stupid.

No, they didn't. The girl recanted. Nevertheless, school principal Stephen Danish released a statement this morning bemoaning the "tremendous pain for the victims and the hurt on both sides of this conflict."

Both sides? Did Allen's feelings get hurt when she had to retract her false accusation?

Well, we almost have all the daylight we need on this one, thanks. I do have one question still unanswered: Will Allen face anything like the discipline the boys would have (and should have) if her accusations hadn't been lies?

Who Cares About You?

Walter E. Williams
  
During my student days at a UCLA economics department faculty/graduate student coffee hour in the 1960s, I was chatting with Professor Armen Alchian, probably the greatest microeconomic theory economist of the 20th century. I was trying to impress Alchian with my knowledge of statistical type I and type II errors. I explained that unlike my wife, who assumed that everyone was her friend until they prove differently, my assumption was everyone was an enemy until they proved otherwise. The result: My wife’s vision maximized the number of her friends but maximized her chances of betrayal. My vision minimized my chances of betrayal at a cost of minimizing the number of my friends.

Alchian, donning a mischievous smile asked, “Williams, have you considered a third alternative, namely, that people don’t give a damn about you one way or another?” Initially, I felt a bit insulted, and our conversation didn’t go much further, but that was typical of Alchian — saying something profound, perhaps controversial, without much comment and letting you think it out.

Years later, I gave Alchian’s third alternative considerable thought and concluded that he was right. The most reliable assumption, in terms of the conduct of one’s life, is to assume that people don’t care about you one way or another. It’s an error to generalize that people are friends or enemies, or that people are out to either help you or hurt you. To put it more crudely, as Alchian did, people don’t give a damn about you one way or another.

Let’s apply this argument to issues of race. Listening to some people, one might think that white people are engaged in an ongoing secret conspiracy to undermine the achievement and well-being of black people. Their evidence is low black academic achievement and high rates of black poverty, unemployment and incarceration. For some, racism is the root cause of most black problems including the unprecedentedly high black illegitimacy rate and family breakdown.

Are white people obsessed with and engaged in a conspiracy against black people? Here’s an experiment. Walk up to the average white person and ask, “How many minutes today have you been thinking about black people?” If the person isn’t a Klansman or a gushing do-gooder liberal, his answer would probably be zero minutes. If you asked him whether he’s a part of a conspiracy to undermine the achievement and well-being of black people, he’d probably look at you as if you were crazy. By the same token, if a person asked me: “Williams, how many minutes today have you been thinking about white people?” My answer would probably be, “Not even a nanosecond.” Because people don’t care about you one way or another doesn’t mean they wish you good will, ill will or no will. They just don’t give a damn.

What are the implications of the people-don’t-care vision of how the world works? A major implication is that one’s destiny, for the most part, is in one’s hands. How you make it in this world depends more on what you do as opposed to whether people like or dislike you. Black politicians, civil rights leaders and white liberals have peddled victimhood to black people, teaching them that racism is pervasive and no amount of individual effort can overcome racist barriers. Peddling victimhood is not new. Booker T. Washington said: “There is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs.” In an 1865 speech to the Anti-Slavery Society in Boston, abolitionist Frederick Douglass said that people ask: “‘What shall we do with the Negro?’ I have had but one answer from the beginning. Do nothing with us! Your doing with us has already played the mischief with us. Do nothing with us!” Or as Patrick Moynihan urged a century later in a 1970 memo to President Richard Nixon, “The time may have come when the issue of race could benefit from a period of ‘benign neglect.’”

Teaching girls to fear boys

Bettina Arndt

I’ve long been contacted by parents and teachers concerned about anti-male bias in school curriculums – I’ve made a previous video  with an Australian teacher about this issue.

So, I was really delighted to be contacted by a South Australian teacher, Christopher Vogel, who told me he’d just finished his Masters thesis showing his state’s school curriculum is systematically teaching children that males are the abusers with females as their innocent victims.

Christopher analyzed Keeping Safe, the mandatory child protection curriculum taught in all public schools in SA from kindergarten to year 12.

He talks to me about his fascinating results in my new video.



I hope you will help me promote this important research. We need to expose this education department for teaching girls to fear boys.

His research reveals systemic bias against boys. The curriculum provides 84 examples of males being aggressive to females (including child rape and abuse) and only one instance of a female being aggressive to a male (looking in his room without permission). See examples in the graphic below.

The introduction to the curriculum reveals the clear bias against boys, quoting from feminist advocacy groups like White Ribbon which are known to distort violence statistics, presenting only males as aggressors. Here’s a breakdown of the proportion of male to female aggressors in the introduction.



The bias against boys increases with the older age groups, as you can see here.



It wasn’t so long ago that our society realised, to our shame, that we’d failed victims of sexual abuse by choosing not to hear their stories. But now we have an entire school curriculum which deliberately ignores male victims of abuse, denying their experiences and making them reluctant to seek help. In Australia we have recently had hundreds of victims of child sexual abuse paraded in the media, as part of the Royal Commission into institutional sexual abuse. It was startling how many of these were boys.

It’s just one example of the dangerous grip of feminist ideology on our institutions, including school curriculum. South Australia certainly isn’t the only state where this is happening. I hope this inspires parents and teachers to check out whether children in your schools are being fed similarly dangerous nonsense. I’ll post Christopher’s thesis on my website to give the detailed information you might need to ask tough questions. You’ll be pleased to hear Kit received an HD for his thesis and was asked to present his results to senior education bureaucrats. We need to be writing to education ministers across the country seeking more balanced treatment of our children.    

Here are some of the curriculum’s examples of male aggression:

Flashback: A Dress Worthy of a Nobel Prize

 Cache   

The winners of the 2019 Nobel Prizes are being announced this week, and the Nobels always remind me of an unusual fashion story I wrote for the Huffington Post in 2012. I've been republishing my HuffPost pieces on this blog, because I'm worried that they'll vanish into the ether one of these days, and this was my favorite HuffPost article by far so I'm grabbing it while I can!

A Dress Worthy of a Nobel Prize

What do you wear on a day that encompasses both grief and unexpected joy? Maybe something wholly unexpected.
It could be the happiest day of your life. Or the saddest. It could be a wedding or a funeral. Either way, it doesn't matter how you feel about fashion. You still have to get dressed, and whatever you wear will be meaningful. So what do you wear on a day that encompasses both grief and unexpected joy? Maybe something wholly unexpected.
[caption id="attachment_43497" align="aligncenter" width="498"] A close-up of dendritic cells silkscreened on tulle. Photo by Nando Alvarez-Perez.[/caption]
That's what lawyer Jenny Carroll decided upon when she was preparing to attend the Nobel Prize ceremony in Stockholm last year. Her father-in-law, Ralph M. Steinman, a professor of immunology at Rockefeller University, had won a Nobel Prize, but he wouldn't be there to enjoy the honor. He died three days before the award was announced. Dr. Steinman had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2007. For four years, he was treated with traditional chemotherapy and an experimental vaccine based on his own research into dendritic cells. (Dendritic cells -- discovered by Dr. Steinman and the late Zanvil A. Cohn in 1973 -- stimulate the immune system.) Dr. Steinman spent time with his three grandchildren and, Carroll says, "worked till he couldn't work anymore, till the last week of his life." With the cancer invading his liver and bones, he spent that last week in the hospital, surrounded by his family. He died on Friday, Sept. 30, 2011. His survivors -- wife Claudia; twin daughters Alexis and Lesley; and son Adam (Carroll's husband) -- were overwhelmed by grief. "He had so many colleagues all over the world," Carroll says. "We weren't going to tell anyone over the weekend until people were back at their labs. We notified family members. We dealt with the children and their emotions."
In the early morning of Monday, Oct. 3, 2011, the notification process was taken out of family members' hands. Text messages and calls popped up on their phones; the Nobel Foundation was trying to reach Dr. Steinman to tell him his work with dendritic cells had won a Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine. (He split the prize with Bruce A. Beutler and Jules A. Hoffman, who also made discoveries in immunology.) With congratulatory calls and emails pouring in from people who had yet to learn of Dr. Steinman's death, the family informed Rockefeller University and the Nobel Foundation. Nobel Prizes aren't normally awarded posthumously, so the foundation would have to reconsider. Only a few hours passed before the organization reaffirmed the award, stating that its secret deliberations and decision had been made in good faith, without knowledge of Dr. Steinman's death. Dr. Steinman's family was invited to Stockholm for the Nobel Prize ceremony and a week of festivities in December.
A strict dress code called for women to wear floor-length gowns, and a powerful mix of sorrow and happiness made two of the Steinman women act out of character. Fashion-loving daughter Alexis, a Los Angeles-based costumer (Showtime's Weeds), found she had no heart for shopping. "All that mattered was that I would be in an appropriate gown that would make my father proud," she says. She was happy to borrow a black, mermaid-style gown from the owner of Shareen Vintage, who offered the dress free of charge when she heard what it was for. Thrifty Dr. Steinman would have liked that, Alexis says. Her twin sister Lesley also borrowed a dress.
Meanwhile, in New York, daughter-in-law Jenny Carroll channeled her emotion into a special project. Formerly a public defender in Seattle, Carroll is now a Seton Hall University criminal-law professor and a mother of two who takes little note of fashion. "I'm not a fancy dress person," she says. "Unless I have to be in court or class, I'm wearing a t-shirt, comfortable pants and running shoes." Carroll -- daunted by the idea of shopping for a dress that would be beautiful, appropriate and somehow symbolic of Dr. Steinman -- asked a friend for advice and was referred to Jean Kormos of Ghost Tailor. Kormos is a couturiere and tailor who happens to have a passion for biology. Over the course of four meetings between Oct. 31 and Nov. 25, Kormos whipped up a gown of muted pinkish-beige silk crepe and charcoal-gray tulle. The tulle skirt was subtly silkscreened with the image of dendritic cells.
[caption id="attachment_43503" align="aligncenter" width="498"] Jean Kormos and Jenny Carroll in the Ghost Tailor studio. Photo by Nando Alvarez-Perez.[/caption]
Together, Carroll and Kormos had found a way to make a true fashion statement: As hoped, the dress led to dialogue with attendees at the Dec. 10 celebration, who were curious about the unusual print. "I wanted them to see why I'm at this event," Carroll said before leaving for Stockholm. "How did a public defender [originally] from South Texas end up at the Nobels? Because Ralph looked through a microscope and didn't give up. When he first discovered the cell, people didn't even believe it. He believed it was a significant find and a way to unlock the immune system."
[caption id="attachment_43498" align="aligncenter" width="468"] Jenny Carroll at Ghost Tailor. Images of dendritic cells can be seen on the tulle skirt. Photo by Nando Alvarez-Perez.[/caption]
Still, Carroll says, the best compliments were from family. Dr. Steinman's wife, Claudia -- who was clad in black -- said her husband would have loved the creativity. Carroll's elder daughter, the now-seven-year-old Isla, declared she wanted to be married in the dress.
[caption id="attachment_43499" align="aligncenter" width="498"] Daughter Isla takes a closer look at Jenny Carroll's dress during the Nobel Prize event in Stockholm. Photo courtesy Lesley Steinman.[/caption]
Isla, who attended the Nobel ceremony with her parents, is a science enthusiast like her grandfather. In 2010, during Dr. Steinman's last Christmas, the professor and Isla were discovered in an improvised bathroom "lab" using baking soda and vinegar to shoot cotton balls through the air. Dr. Steinman told Isla that he would attend the Nobel ceremony when she won a prize. Reflecting on her daughters, Carroll -- back in jeans -- sees her foray into fashion as a successful experiment. "My two girls are always faced with the false dichotomy of you can be beautiful or you can be smart," she says. "You can be all. The dress can be beautiful and tell a story. You can be beautiful and tell a story."

DOUBLE DIP RECESSION IN WA STATE CONFIRMED!

 Cache   


Washington State Continues to Falter!





There was more national bad news from the US Department of Labor Friday Morning with the Obama U3 number going to 9% (that’s the percentage of the workforce collecting unemployment benefits) and the U6 number climbing to 17.8% (that’s the percentage of the workforce that is unemployed!). Even though hiring perked up some, the economy lost a net 190,000 jobs in April: NOT GOOD NEWS.

The latest numbers in Washington State has the U3 number at 9.7% or 340,330 and the U6 number at 599,963 which is the actual number of people unemployed in Washington State. Again a number of people left the workforce and gave up trying to find a job: 2,430. Snohomish County is still having a major problem with employment coming in at 10.1% for U3 and 18.4% for the U6 number. That means 70,157 people remain unemployed in SNO County.

Realtytrac’s March numbers were stunning with regard to State and County wide foreclosures. March foreclosures added 3,613 new defaults/foreclosures bringing the statewide total year to year to 35,049 foreclosures. King County led the foreclosure parade with 1,392 and Seattle was hit hard with another 490 foreclosures. For those of you who read the bogus, male bovine excrement story in Friday’s Seattle Times, I had a roll in the floor laugh at their expense: Link

Over the commercial real estate side of the fence the CBA or the Commercial Brokers Association in Washington State now has over 19,000 listings for rent, lease or sale: AN ALL TIME RECORD.

With regard to the billions in deficits that the State Legislature if fiddling around with in Olympia the Economic and Revenue Forecast Council has issued a report that is gloomy to say the least. Meaning: the state cannot count on sales tax revenue to fill up almost 6 Billion in deficits; instead they will have to cut more spending. With the idiot Democrats in control down in the SWAMP (Olympia) that does not sound like a very likely scenario.

Editor’s note: The State of Idaho business licensing department over at Coeur d'Alene has had to add more personnel to handle the increasing numbers of business in the Spokane area who are leaving the Evergreen State.
Seasonal Adjusted Numbers for those of you who read my blogs you know that these numbers that the Washington State Department of Employment Security and the US Department of Labor issue to the leftist press are nothing short of a manipulated LIE! The Seasonal adjusted numbers have no basis in reality!

          

Sign Holders

 Cache   
I saw a festively plump (as Cartman would say) female holding a sign at the end of the SR520 ramp that connects to 148th Ave in Bellevue. The sign was brand new and written on a large piece of poster board. It had big bubble letters filling in with a rainbow of colors. It was asking for handouts. Anything will help the sign concluded.

After turning on to 148th I came to the 24th Street intersection. There were two more people holding signs. They were advertisements for local businesses. Whenever I am in this part of the state I regularly see people standing on the corners holding signs for local businesses.

I know some look down upon such activities, but I think it is great. They are attempting to make their own way -- willing to take a job rather than begging for a handout.

On a side note many areas around Seattle and Spokane have lots of people who beg for money. It seems harder and harder to find an off ramp where people are not begging for money. The only reason why people keep coming back is because they are making money.

Look at their sign. It is folded up and reused day after day. One of the biggest scams is begging for money because they need gas money or are stranded. It is pretty lucky for them they happened to have a sign they could hold up at a freeway off ramp. Those who give money are suckers who do nothing to help the situation.
          

How Dare a teacher Punish My Child?!

 Cache   
I was in school when the teacher was able to spank students if there was parents' permission. When the paddle came out you know someone deserved it. There were always some issues with kids, but they never got very bad when the kid knew a paddle was waiting.

If I got in trouble at school the last thing I wanted is for my parents to find out because I would get in even more trouble for acting out at school.

It seems like there might have been a change in how parents react to their children getting in trouble at school.

"A Washington mother who says a teacher taped her 7-year-old son to a classroom chair is angry and calls the incident 'child endangerment.'" -- SeattlePI.com#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/109467&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com website

The kid described it as a "tape seat belt".

I think the solution is as soon as a kid acts up, he is taken out of the classroom and a parent is called to take the child home for the rest of the day. How much do you want to bet that parents would quickly start changing their tune about discipline in school after getting called to school and having to leave work more than once?
          

Fearing for his Life?

 Cache   
There is a video of D'Vontaveous Hoston, a 17-year-old male, who is in a small convienence store in Seattle. As he is there a drug bust is going bad and a cop is getting beat. An undercover cop goes chasing after a suspect. That is when Hoston goes outside to see what is going on. He goes back into the store. The officer sees Hoston and thought he was the suspect. The officer goes into the store.

Hoston explains what happened saying, "I'm like hey man I had nothing to do with that and he looked at me and said get the "F" on the ground and I'm like what?" (From q13fox.com#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/109468&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com)

So he clearly heard the officer order him to the ground. After not going to the ground, but just simply raising his arms up, the officer kicks Hoston on the side of the leg then goes hands on taking him to the ground.

Q13fox.com#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/109468&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com continues, "He intends to file a lawsuit against the City of Seattle and SPD for what happened to him. Hoston says, 'Since this happened I feel like I got to be looking over my shoulder in case police officers do something, you feel me? I feel like my life is threatened.'"

So Hoston feels like he is in fear for his life because a cop kicked him. Makes no sense to me. In fact, when ordered to the ground, that is the time to do what was ordered.

Too often people try to argue with the police at the moment of initial contact. Until the officer has the scene under control there is no time for debate. Simply complying with the orders will get the scene under control and then you can have your discussion with the officer.

News That Matters

Seattle/Tacoma’s Very High Home Foreclosures now rank in the top 5 metro foreclosure areas in the nation, states this report out this week. A lot of these Foreclosures are condos and guess what? There are a lot of Strategic Foreclosures in this mix. Here is what RealtyTrac has on this problem as of December. Seattle’s economy is in the dumper! The US Department of Labor is reporting the new unemployment rate nationally at 9% but that is a statistical Abnormality! Read this!

Major increases in Syphilis, Gonorrhea in King, Pierce and Snohomish County have public health officials scratching their heads and in a panic. This is the largest increase in VD in the Tri-County area in many years. Here is the situation in King County.

President Obama (without teleprompter) and talking to reporters got his wars all confused. Some of the reporters with FOX News were stunned by this gaffe! Is he losing it?

Insiders tell the FOX Business Network this week that more than a thousand businesses and labor unions are scrambling to join more than 300 organizations to get themselves EXEMPT from the Obama Health Care Plan by the President himself.

Bogus unemployment stories keep coming out of the local newspapers, the local leftwing TV outlets and Olympia. The issue is the SEASONAL ADJUSTED NUMBERS being used that are worthless and a statistical lie!
For example this FRONT PAGE PIECE in the Seattle Times is a bogus story. Seasonally adjusted data on employment are numbers made up by statisticians to try and look for trends, they are not the REAL NUMBERS. Here is the definition of Seasonal Adjusted Stats.
Here is what Gallup found
when it did its study of unemployment and their take on these bogus seasonal adjusted numbers!

Been in the grocery store lately? You may have noticed that your favorite box of cereal has gone up in price or your steak is now more than it was a few weeks ago. Think that’s bad? You ain’t seen nothin’ yet! Here is what is coming down the road with commodity prices. Beef along with corn, rice, soy beans, wheat and sugar prices are going to go through the roof. It is called INFLATION! That also includes the price per gallon of gas. We may be looking at $100 per barrel oil and $5 per gallon gas in the weeks to come.

The Snohomish County Executive November 2011 election race is underway! Aaron Reardon this time faces Mike Hope the very popular GOP 44th District Legislator. Mike is already raising money and with a sizable number of supporters has a good chance to beat Reardon; whose administration has been rocked by scandal after scandal. Let’s look at a few:

Reardon is a member of the Department of Ecology’s Nincompoopial
Climate Action Team. Every member of this group is either ignorant, a socialist or brain dead or any combination of the three. Take your pick.

Reardon formed his own Climate Change Task Force which has come under fire at several town hall meetings including a heated one in Monroe. There is no such thing as global warming/climate change and EVERYONE knows it!

There was Reardon’s $160,000 Garbage truck that didn’t work (how many public works employees does it take to design a garbage truck?)

Reardon’s solid-waste director Sam Chandler claimed he was fired because he caught employees at the garbage transfer stations stealing cash and reported it. County Union officials put an end to Sam’s tenure.

Reardon’s Snohomish County Planning Director fired for getting drunk and exposing himself to a female on a golf course (he already had a history of this sort of behavior!).

One of Reardon’s Medical examiners arrived inebriated at the scene of a drunken driving accident that took 4 victims to their graves and he was promptly arrested and fired because of public outcries.

Reardon’s energy drink commercial was the laughing stock on YouTube. It was promptly taken down from the internet during howls of laughter.

Looks like Mike Hope is going to have a field day with Reardon!



Washington State’s Democrats in Legislature go insane! Here are a few examples:

Dem’s want to cut education funding to provide money to drunks and crack heads.

Dem’s want to legalize dope!

Dem’s want to establish a State Socialized Worker’s Bank!

Dem’s want to drive more business’s out of the state by raising the employer supplied unemployment insurance costs.

Dem’s want to give the Transportation Commission the authority to violate the people’s will (2/3 vote to raise taxes, majority to raise fees) by raising fees through the roof through a legislative trick, that may be illegal!

Dem’s want to scale back and cut to shreds the Guaranteed Education Tuition program, which by the way is 255 Million Dollars in the hole already! Tuition costs are going up so rapidly that in the end unless you come from a rich family, you ain’t going to school at U Dub or WaZoo!

EDITORIAL: I woke up this morning and thought that I was having a nightmare and that I had been transported back in time to 1979 while watching the morning news showing rioting in Egypt. I think what we have here is a Jimmy Carter clone: OBAMA with his Secretary of State that has been fowling things up since she has been in office. If they have miscalculated and Egypt is taken over by the Muslim Brotherhood (terrorists) this will be a 500 pound rock around Obama’s neck when he runs for re-election, in addition to being a strategic DISASTER for peace in the Middle East AND US foreign policy.

          

Washington Unserious Job Creation

 Cache   
The good news is that Washington experienced a net gain of 5900 jobs in October. The bad news is that more than two thirds of those jobs were in the public sector. Admittedly, my formal training in economics is limited to about 8 units several decades ago, but I’m reasonably confident that a job market that creates two public sector jobs for every private sector job is not sustainable. It is the private sector that creates the wealth that provides sustenance for the public sector, and there is simply no way that a single private sector employee can generate enough wealth to support his own family and two others. The 5900 jobs “created” in October bring the 2010 total in Washington to 6000. That’s all. For the whole year.

October’s private sector job creation included 1500 professional and business services, 800 service jobs in the wholesale trade, 400 service jobs in information, 400 service jobs in the financial services sector and 300 jobs in retail sales. All of these jobs are in the service sector. No one was hiring “activists.”

Meanwhile, the manufacturing sector lost 400 jobs, as did transportation. Another 200 disappeared from the mining and logging industries as did 300 in hospitality and leisure.

So if you’re coming to Washington looking for a job, don’t plan on actually creating or building anything.

Another news story I read this last week noted that the few private sector jobs that our country is creating are mostly in low tax, right-to-work states, which certainly makes sense. Washington’s high tax, union dominated political climate recently drove Boeing to start construction of a new 787 assembly plant in South Carolina.

Even someone with my limited economic training can figure out that this is not going to last. If Washington is ever going to dig itself out of its economic hole, its ruling class will have to look past the interests of its traditional campaign contributors and power brokers and take difficult decisions.

Unfortunately higher education in this state (and in every other state for that matter) is not contributing as much as it could to economic vitality. For all of the hand wringing and political posturing dedicated to the problem of underwater mortgages, mortgages in which the principal balance exceeds the value of the property, higher education is creating a bubble of its own with underwater college degrees.

Universities are pouring out graduates with degrees in subjects that have little or no market value. And to get these worthless degrees the students have accumulated mountains of student loan debt which will weigh heavily on their own futures.

Mortgage lenders have become favorite targets of our ruling class for their supposed “predatory lending practices,” otherwise known as subprime mortgages. Subprime mortgages invited people with poor credit histories and lower incomes to purchase homes that they otherwise could not afford. This practice was forced upon lenders and was once touted by the same ruling class that now condemns it as a means to provide lower income people with an opportunity to accumulate equity. It worked until it collapsed under its own weight.

In its own way, higher education has engaged in its own predatory lending practices by encouraging student to incur heavy debt loads with the promise that a college degree will increase future earning potential sufficiently to make that loan a good investment. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. I recently stopped by a booth at an academic fair to pick up a recruiting brochure that was being handed out to prospective freshmen. It included a fanciful list of careers that this particular academic major supposedly prepared its graduates for. One of those jobs was as that of an “activist.” I don’t know that there are all that many jobs for professional troublemakers but I do know that the few that do exist don’t pay well and certainly do not contribute even one thin dime to wealth creation. It will take some time for an activist to pay off $50,000 or more in student loans. A recent New York Times article told the sad tale of a woman who accumulated $100,000 in student loan debt earning a degree in women's studies and is now discovering that her Bachelor’s degree is worth less than a high school diploma. Some investment.

Colleges and universities are not necessarily trade schools. But we do no one any favors by turning out graduates who won’t even be able to pay off their student loans.

Team / 2 octubre 2019 - Las tarjetas QSL han sido impresas y han sido enviadas hoy por Alfio, IT9EJW, desde Sicilia. Esperamos recibirlas pronto. Todos los cazadores que deseen solicitarlas directamente, están amablemente invitados a hacerlo de inmediato, para garantizar que sus tarjetas se envíen por correo con el primer lote.


Dx World / 9 setiembre 2019 - Sandro VE7NY y el Equipo K7TRI se mudaron al interior del faro ayer. Sabré más tarde si es nuestra última noche. Helicóptero tiene planeado ir la tarde de hoy. Al mediodía hora local GMT-8 se detendrá la operación si se confirman los vuelos ( N3QQ )
Información / 7 setiembre 2019 - Cezar ve3lyc, inauguró la operación en 30mts / Cw. Se trabajaron los primeros pile up, y la segunda estación trabajó Europa en 40mts / Cw a las 06.00z. ---> SPOTS

Información / 6 setiembre 2019 - Después de varios vuelos de comprobación, los pilotos dieron el OK al transporte. A las 17.00z como estaba previsto, los operadores y materiales pusieron rumbo a Tillamook. A las 20.40z los pilotos avandonaron la isla y comenzaron a comprobar sobre el terreno la ubicación de antenas y materiales.

Team /  5 setiembre 2019 - El equipo llegó a Seaside, OR, y se reunió con los pilotos y el equipo de mantenimiento de los propietarios. El piloto de uno de los helicópteros, garantizará el transporte de los pasajeros, mientras que el piloto del otro helicóptero, proporcionará el transporte de los equipos / materiales. Los pilotos comentaron algunos problemas logísticos, que podrían haber resultado en serios obstáculos para el transporte de materiales peligrosos (incluido el gas para generadores), pero lograron encontrar soluciones, y esperamos intentar el transporte mañana, 6 de septiembre.

Todos se reunirán en el hall del hotel para el desayuno a las 8 am, después de lo cual saldrán a organizar los transportes. Esta noche había mucha niebla, se espera que levante alrededor de las 10-11 am hora local (17-18 UTC). Queremos tener todo planeado y estar listos para entonces. ¡Dedos cruzados!


Team / 3 setiembre 2919 - El equipo volverá a revisar con mucho cuidado toda la lista de verificación, después de lo cual empaquetaremos todo, preparándonos para el gran viaje a Seaside, OR. Todos los suministros de alimentos y agua se comprarán mañana. También revisamos varias opciones para la instalación de las antenas, con el fin de prepararnos para cualquier condición en el sitio.

Team / 25 agosto 2019 - El equipo informa que todos los componentes necesarios para este proyecto se han reunido, excepto el gas (para los generadores) y los alimentos, que se comprarán el 5 de septiembre. Sandro conducirá desde Vancouver (Columbia Británica) a Seattle (WA) el 5 de septiembre , donde se reunirá con Yuri, que debe regresar a casa desde Alaska el 3 de septiembre. En su camino a Seaside (OR), recogerán a Cezar y Adrian del aeropuerto de Portland (OR), que ya compraron sus billetes de avión.

El cronograma del pronóstico de la propagación para varias regiones del mundo también se ha finalizado. Nuestros operadores lo verificarán con las condiciones reales de propagación después del inicio de la operación, para ajustarlo, según corresponda.

Estamos muy contentos de que varias asociaciones, fundaciones y clubes hayan asignado graciosamente subvenciones invaluables para este desafiante proyecto. Además, deseamos exponer humildemente que, hasta la fecha, los cazadores de islas de 31 DXCC en 6 continentes nos brindaron su apoyo financiero, lo que nos ayudó a sufragar algunos de los costes caros asociados con esta operación. Gracias a todos, desde el fondo de nuestros corazones.

Nuestro agradecimiento también a los diversos boletines de dx y otros de noticias Dx, como (en orden alfabético) 425 DX, Daily DX, DX News y DX World, por haber mantenido a los DXers y cazadores de islas informados de inmediato sobre todos los aspectos relacionados con este proyecto.

¡Continuamos buscando apoyo de la comunidad, y esperamos que más cazadores de islas puedan y estén dispuestos a ayudar!

Team / 20 agosto 2019 - Se han comprado equipos para acampar, así como tres generadores Yamaha. El mástil para la Urban Beam consta de pequeñas secciones, que serán fáciles de manejar y transportar. Todos los componentes deben estar debidamente embalados y pesados ​​antes del transporte en helicóptero. En los próximos días estaremos trabajando para elaborar el pronóstico de propagación para diferentes regiones del mundo. La información recopilada para diferentes bandas se integrará posteriormente en una tabla, y cada una de las posiciones de la estación la imprimirá. Los operadores podrán tomar notas sobre ellos con respecto a las diferencias entre las condiciones reales y previstas, que se utilizarán durante toda la operación.

El equipo desea agradecer a los 155 cazadores que ya han apoyado este proyecto. Un agradecimiento especial a Shu, JN6RZM, quien se encargó de energizar a los cazadores de JA, 52 de los cuales ofrecieron donaciones hasta la fecha. Además, muchas gracias a Tom, SM3DMP, que energizó a los cazadores de islas SM, un total de 14 actualmente en la lista de donantes. Mientras tanto, esperamos que más cazadores continúen interviniendo y respalden nuestro esfuerzo.

Team / 16 agosto 2019 - Para garantizar el transporte del heli según lo programado, el equipo tuvo que pagar la cotización completa por adelantado,  $ 14k. Tener en cuenta que el 50% de esta cantidad no es reembolsable en caso de que cancelemos el viaje.

Cambiando de tema, decidimos llevar con nosotros en este viaje una Urban Beam, y deseamos agradecer a SteppIR por proporcionarnos una a corto plazo. Este es una beam de dos elementos de hasta 20 m, que funciona como un dipolo giratorio de 30 y 40 m.

Tiene un radio de giro de poco menos de 5 m. No será fácil encontrar espacio para instalarla en la isla, pero estamos comprometidos a hacerlo. La beam, su controlador y el mástil pesan al menos 60 kg, lo que aumentará aún más una carga ya pesada. Como tal, actualmente estamos reevaluando cada componente de radio, artículo del campamento y comida para mantener el peso total dentro del límite de transporte.

Estamos muy lejos de nuestro objetivo en el presupuesto, por lo tanto, apoya este proyecto si aún no lo has hecho. ¡Realmente necesitamos todo el apoyo que los cazadores y DXers de IOTA estén dispuestos y puedan ofrecer!

Team / 10 agosto 2019 - El equipo continúa trabajando para garantizar que toda la logística necesaria esté en su lugar. Nos complace reconocer las subvenciones recibidas de RSGB, Clipperton DX CLub y DX News, junto con el apoyo individual ofrecido por casi 90 cazadores de islas de 21 DXCC, por lo cual estamos muy agradecidos.

Una nota especial de agradecimiento a JF4VZT, N6VR y ON4IZ por su apoyo a este proyecto, ¡aunque ya tienen confirmada la referencia NA-211!

Mientras tanto, nos gustaría transmitir a todos los cazadores, una vez más, que estamos buscando su apoyo. ¡Ayúdanos a sufragar algunos de los enormes costos asociados con este proyecto al considerar una donación! Gracias de antemano por tu consideración.


Team, 4 agosto 2019 - Tillamook Rock Lighthouse cuenta para la Amateur Radio Lighthouse Society (ARLHS) como USA-849. Nuestra tarjeta QSL incluirá esta referencia.

Team, 2 agosto 2019 - Tillamook Rock se encuentra a 2 km del parque estatal Ecola, entre Seaside y Cannon Beach, Oregón. Construir un faro en él fue una hazaña de ingeniería, y permaneció operativo entre 1881 y 1957. Situado en una roca solitaria de un acre en un área tormentosa conocida como el Cementerio del Pacífico, este faro apodado el Terrible Tilly, era el más caro de mantener y difícil de operar por el hombre en los Estados Unidos.

Sentado a 133 pies sobre el nivel del mar, el faro de Tillamook Rock tiene 62 pies de altura. Es el único faro de la costa de Oregon de propiedad privada en el Registro Nacional de Lugares Históricos. Es un cementerio no visitable desde 1981, con una anidación de vida silvestre protegida del 15 de marzo al 1 de septiembre. Tillamook Rock pertenece a la referencia IOTA NA-211. Lanny (W5BOS) llevó a cabo la primera y única operación de radioaficionados desde allí en 1998, o hace 21 años.

Nuestro equipo intentará operar desde Tillamook Rock entre el 6 y el 9 de septiembre de 2019. Los propietarios gentilmente nos permitieron llevar a cabo esta actividad y, a cambio, estamos firmemente comprometidos a ayudarlos a realizar reparaciones durante este período de tiempo. El transporte a la isla será proporcionado por un servicio de helicóptero, y requerirá un vuelo de reconocimiento, seguido de varios vuelos para llevar a todas las personas y materiales allí, y varios más para el regreso. Los costos adicionales asociados con este proyecto, que incluyen pasajes aéreos, transporte terrestre, alojamiento en hoteles, alquiler de generadores, alimentos, equipo de campamento, etc., elevan el costo total del proyecto a $ 20,000.

Este es un proyecto muy costoso y desafiante, estamos buscando activamente posibles apoyos de cazadores y DXers de IOTA en general. ¡Todos los donantes serán reconocidos de inmediato en la web del proyecto!

Seattle Schools Community Forum: WA State Charter Schools to Benefit from DeVos Largess

WA State Charter Schools to Benefit from DeVos Largess

The Seattle Times has a story about how Washington State charter schools are eligible to apply for dollars from a $20M grant that the Washington State Charter School Association will receive from the Department of Education.  To note, Betsy DeVos has been instrumental in sending out many more federal dollars to help shore up the starting-to-lean-like-the tower-in-Pisa charter school business.  Washington state was just one of five states to receive a grant.

Although they receive state funding for each child who attends, they do not benefit from local tax levies, which pay for school districts’ building and construction costs. Charters have to raise money for these and other upfront costs by fundraising, turning to philanthropists and seeking grants.”
The original charter law would have allowed access to local school levy dollars and luckily, that got changed. I’m glad for a couple of reasons. 
Districts have to pay for these elections and there was no wording in the law that charters would have to contribute. Why in the world would they get the benefit of school levy dollars without helping to pay for levies AND going out to help pass them?

Also, the Gates Foundation has a non-profit group just for charter schools and their capital needs. I’m surprised the Times didn’t admit this fact into the story. Of course, the Foundation has its favorites so only those that Gates wants to see succeed get those dollars.

To note, Seattle charter schools can now access levy funds from the City’s CONTINUE READING:

The Stranger Beside Me: The Ted Bundy Story

 Cache   


The Stranger Beside Me: The Ted Bundy Story on Blu-Ray + Digital from Mill Creek Entertainment has an MSRP of $14.98 and stars Billy Campbell (TV’s Cardinal), Barbara Hershey (TV’s The X-Files), Kevin Dunn (Above Suspicion), Suki Kaiser (TV’s Arrow), and Brenda James (Slither). Ann Rule is an ex-cop working the suicide hotlines in Seattle. To make ends meet, she indulges in another obsession writing true-crime stories. She has a daughter, a fulfilling life, and a good friend in a man named Ted Bundy a handsome and intelligent charmer who’s just been accepted into law school in Utah.


What’s captivating Ann’s attention now is a string of brutal murders missing-women cases that have stretched from Utah to Seattle. It’s being called the most intriguing unsolved series of crimes since Jack the Ripper and she's been offered the chance to turn her articles into a book. But the more she digs and uncovers, a dreadful and unavoidable truth is staring her directly in the face her friend Ted.
Unbelievably authentic and terribly shocking- The Stranger Beside Me is based on Ann Rule's New York Times bestseller of her eyewitness account from the darkest depths imaginable. The story of a friend who became a stranger, and a stranger who became one of the most notorious serial killers.
My Opinion: This is a thriller and we all remember the Ted Bundy murders and this movie is chilling as it is her friend, you never know who is secretly a murder.

Monday 2/2 Super Bowl Hangover Quickie

 Cache   
*The decision not to give the ball to Marshawn Lynch is the worst play call in the history of pro football.

*It's been a while since I went full-blown "instant history/hysteria," so it's nice to stretch my legs a bit. (That makes me more productive than Marshawn Lynch on the Seahawks' last offensive play of the season.)

*The justification for the "Worst. _____. Ever." siren is the combination of the stakes (Super Bowl championship), the moment (come-from-behind TD, virtually the final play of the game, coming after one of the greatest catches in NFL history) and the context (would have denied the Pats a title), the context (would have won a back-to-back title for Seattle) and the context (Lynch is the NFL's best RB).

*It's not enough to say "Worst play call in Super Bowl history" -- because it is the Super Bowl, that makes it vastly bigger than if the play call happened in, say, Week 6 (or even an earlier playoff round). It is the context that justifies the superlative.

*Looking for a reasonable/rational defense of the play call? Vox outlines a good one, but it comes with a worthwhile caveat about over-thinking it. (Let's also say that Malcolm Butler made a phenomenal play -- if that ball drops for an incompletion, it's very likely Lynch runs it in on one of the next two plays, and the history of the NFL is altered. That Butler was an undrafted rookie makes it all the more incredible.)

(Update: As always, read Bill Barnwell for a measured take on the situation.)

*All in all, it was as entertaining of a Super Bowl as you could have asked for.

*Postscript: The ads. It was basically a given that Budweiser would run away with the ad title, but improbable that Nationwide would be the ad "everyone is talking about," if only because of how grim it was. Personal favorite: Always' #LikeAGirl ad. (Notable: There were a LOT of "dad ads" -- I liked the Toyota Camry one. The Nissan one didn't speak to me at all.)

*Adam Silver's resolve.
*Becky Hammon's new gig.
*Michael Sam's moment.
*Russell Wilson.
*Richard Sherman's rant.
*Seeing UConn women's hoops in person.
*Florida's Final Four run.
*Watching Peak Spurs in June.
*Kevin Durant's MVP speech.
*Kliff Kingsbury at SXSW.
*Charlie Strong at Texas.
*Casper mattresses.
*Nuzzel (launched-in-2014 app I use most).
*Serial.
*Rooting for Paul Pierce (wait...what?)
*Northwestern beating Notre Dame.
*Two more teams for a college football playoff.
*Great sportswriting (Quickish 14 for 14 TBD).
*Watching my kids play sports.
*TinyLetter (Subscribe!)
*The Wizards' playoff run.

Most of all, thanks to you for your continued support of this blog, the newsletter and all of the other things I'm futzing around with. More than a decade after I first connected with many of you, I appreciate it more than ever.

People on Reddit are slamming a 200-square-foot San Diego 'shed' that rents for more than $1,000 a month, but it's just the latest example of America's unaffordable housing market

 Cache   

4735 1/2 Oregon St, San Diego, CA 92116

A 200-square-foot studio hit the top of Reddit's San Diego page last week, and not because the Redditors were charmed by how quaint the minimalist space was.

The apartment, located at 4735 1/2 Oregon Street in San Diego, California, is currently listed by JD Property Management and Realty. The listing describes the unit as an "updated studio with 1 bath and small kitchen" in the University Heights neighborhood. San Diegans on Reddit were outraged to see that the tiny unit, which many of them deemed a "shed," was asking $1,100 per month to rent.

4735 1/2 Oregon St, San Diego, CA 92116

"Someone is really charging people $1,100 to live in a shed! And they want you to have a 650+ credit score too," Reddit user terrificheretic posted, referencing the listing's stated rental requirements (income of 2.5 times the monthly rent, a FICO score at or above 650, no legal evictions on record, and "good rental references").

"I'm all about charging market value but this seems a tad... over-valued, to say at the least," one commenter wrote.

"I was making $8.50 an hour and my first apartment was $190 a month. It was cool 40 years ago. I can't believe how difficult it is for people now. We have f----- up the middle class," another commented.

Realtors say this pricing isn't unusual

But Joshua Dillon, a broker with JD Property Management and Realty, says this pricing is "not uncommon."

4735 1/2 Oregon St, San Diego, CA 92116

"There are several other units around town that are comparable," Dillon told Business Insider via email.

He noted that the "typical/average" one-bedroom in the larger San Diego County rents for between $1,300 and $1,500 per month and that the asking price of the Oregon Street studio (now reduced to $1,050 a month) "is not much more than people are paying to rent rooms within houses ($800-$900)."

Ranking and review site Niche puts the county's median rent at $1,467.

Dillon also clarified that the apartment is not a shed, despite its shed-like appearance: "This unit has its own electric meter, its own address, etc., and has been here since the end of World War II per the owner, due to the housing shortage at that time."

4735 1/2 Oregon St, San Diego, CA 92116

The "shed" on Oregon Street is just one symptom of a nation-wide issue

The housing crisis is on clear display across the US, particularly with the astronomical cost of living in areas like New York City, San Francisco, and Palo Alto.

Read more: San Francisco's housing market is so out of control, 60% of tech workers say they can't afford homes

Business Insider's Libertina Brandt previously reported that the median rent for a Manhattan studio apartment in July and August hit $2,700, while Brooklyn's median face rent hit an all-time high of $3,000 per month in June. Brandt separately reported in September that the tiniest apartment in San Francisco, just 161 square feet, was asking over $2,200 a month in rent. Renters in San Francisco are even dishing out $1,200 a month to rent a single bunk bed in co-living buildings and over $2,000 a month to rent rooms in vacant Victorian homes.

Landlords in New York City were even caught renting out "micro rooms" — illegal sub-units with no windows, sprinklers, or fire-safety systems — with ceilings reported to be a mere 4.5 to 6 feet tall.

Quinisha Jackson-Wright, a freelance journalist for Business Insider, wrote about how her rent more than doubled — from $800 a month to $2,000 — when she moved from the Midwest to Santa Barbara, California.

Recognizing the issues, some states are attempting to tackle the affordable housing crisis: California recently became the third state (after Oregon in March and New York in June) to pass a rent control bill in an effort to curtail the problem. And tech companies are attempting to find solutions as well; Microsoft announced in January that it would pledge $500 million to help alleviate Seattle's growing housing crisis in light of the city's influx of tech companies, Business Insider previously reported.

Sara L. on "Party dress help"

 Cache   

Ugh, I thought I had this figured out but then I decided to try on my party outfit last night and decided it's not as figured out as I thought.  I thought I would just wear the same dress I wore last year because I like it and haven't had many occasions to wear it.  I really don't think anyone will remember (or care).  Last year I wore it with dark red shoes and black tights (Photo 1).  I thought I would wear nude fishnets and my new rose-gold shoes.  But I don't like the combo as much as I I thought I would so here's a whole bunch of options (ignore my ponytail hair and no make-up).  I really want to wear these rose-gold shoes - they're comfortable and shiny.  I'll add some sparkly jewelry to whichever dress I eventually choose.

This is an employee appreciation party that my company throws every year.  It's in Seattle so it will be a cold evening.

#1 - Last year
#2 - Same dress, nude fishnets, gold shoes
#3 - Green dress, nude fishnets, gold shoes
#4 - Floral dress, black fishnets, gold shoes
#5 - Green dress, black fishnets, gold shoes
#6/7 - Floral dress with maroon tights. 
#8 - Jumpsuit with jacket

I also have black micro fishnet tights and sheer black hose.  I just got tired of trying stuff on.  Do you have an opinion on large fishnet vs. small fishnet?  Is one more sexy than the other?  I feel like I usually have a good feel for that sort of thing but I don't when it comes to fishnet.

"I'm not going anywhere..." Utopia has debuted the first official trailer for a small town indie drama called Mickey and the Bear, marking the feature directorial debut of actress Annabelle Attanasio.

Event Update For 2019-10-06

 Cache   






The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.




A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

Note: There was just an article the other day about how cold fresh water from the ice in Greenland melting is causing the Atlantic Ocean's circulation system to slow down. One sign that that is happening would be colder weather in Europe, since it is that circulation system that transports heat from the Gulf of Mexico across the Atlantic Ocean to Europe. Much of Europe is at the same latitude as Siberia and it is only that 'conveyor belt' transporting oceanic heat to the area that keeps the climate in Europe as mild as it has been. So the more that circulation system slows down, the colder it will get in Europe, offset to some degree by the overall warming that the planet is experiencing...

Repressed Memories Are Back, Baby!

The widely debunked concept of repressed memories has been rebranded for the current era. by Katie Herzog

In 1983, a 26-year-old woman named Nancy Tyson took her father to court in Washington state. Tyson claimed that her father, Dwayne Tyson, had sexually abused her on a regular basis when she was between the ages of three and 11, and that she had been so traumatized that she blocked out all memory of it. It wasn’t until she started going to therapy as an adult that she’d remembered what had taken place.

Nancy Tyson wanted to sue her father for damages, but there was a problem: The statute of limitations for sexual abuse was, at the time, just three years after an alleged assault or the victim turned 18, and she was well past both.

Tyson v. Tyson went all the way to the Washington State Supreme Court, but the court did not rule in Nancy’s favor: The majority decided that the potential adverse effects on the state judicial system—as well as the lack of empirical evidence supporting her claims—were serious enough side with the defendant.

Two years later, however, the Washington State Legislature did what the court refused to do, and passed a law revising the statute of limitations: Instead of requiring suits to be filed within three years of the alleged crime or the victim turning 18, now the statute of limitations would be expanded to three years after the victim remembered it. It was the first state in the nation to do this, but others would soon follow suit.

Nancy Tyson was one of tens of thousands of adults and children who claimed to remember horrific physical or sexual abuse after undergoing psychiatric counseling. Many of these cases have become famous: In 1995, for instance, 43 adults in Wenatchee, Washington, were arrested on 29,726 charges of child sexual abuse involving 60 children. Parents and Sunday school teachers were accused of participating in an organized sex abuse ring called "The Circle," where they passed children around at sex parties and church events. After the allegations were made, children were taken from their families and placed into foster care, and in all, 18 people went to prison.

The problem was, it wasn’t true, and later, after law students and faculty at the University of Washington Innocence Project Northwest took up the case, all the verdicts were overturned or the charges reduced. This saga is now remembered as the “Wenatchee witch hunt,” and it’s not the only case of “repressed memories” gone wrong in Washington state.

In another famous case, Paul Ingram, a deputy in the Thurston County Sheriff’s Department and chair of the county Republican Party, was accused by his daughters of molestation. The family were members of a Pentecostal church that preached the idea that Satan could take over peoples’ minds, force them to commit unspeakable crimes, and then wipe all traces from their memories. Ingram’s children accused a number of their father's colleagues in the Sheriff’s Office of partaking in hundreds of satanic rituals and of murdering 25 babies. One of Ingram’s daughters said she’d gotten pregnant and caught an STD from her dad—claims later disproved by a physician.

All the accused were eventually cleared of charges except for Ingram, who quickly admitted his guilt when questioned by law enforcement. He couldn’t remember abusing his daughters or anyone else, so, he thought, he must have repressed it. He later recanted his confession but still spent 10 years in prison.

Stories like this happened all over the country through the ‘80s and ‘90s as people reported memories of just-recalled abuse. Some said they were kidnapped, tortured, and raped by satanic cult members who stole into their childhood bedrooms at night and whisked them away to secret locations. They were so traumatized by these events that they forget they even occurred and were only able to access them, years later, through therapy.

The roots of the “repressed memories” movement is often credited to Sigmund Freud, who was influenced by the hypnotists of his era. Freud believed that the aim of psychoanalysis was to make the unconscious conscious. Many clinicians specializing in repressed memories claimed to do just that, arguing that recovering the repressed trauma is necessary for the patient to find relief from it. Like many of Freud’s theories, this was more based on his imagination than empirical evidence, but the concept has persisted through time.

In 1973, the idea of repressed memories became popularized with the publication of Sybil, a “nonfiction” book by journalist Flora Rheta Schreiber. Schreiber claimed that under psychiatric treatment, a patient whom she called Sybil recalled severe abuse by her mother, abuse that later manifested as 16 different personalities that all lived within her. The book sold over 400,000 copies and was later made into a movie, bringing the idea of both multiple personality disorder, and repressed memories, into pop culture.

Sybil was later reinvestigated by journalist Debbie Nathan, who concluded that most of the story was based on lies. But the book sparked an industry. Therapists all over the country began to specialize in this treatment, and more and more books and articles were published legitimizing wild, outlandish stories of abuse.

Michelle Remembers, for instance, a 1980 memoir written by Michelle Smith and her psychiatrist-turned-husband Lawrence Padzer, detailed memories that Smith “recovered” while under Padzer’s care. Smith had initially gone to Padzer for treatment for depression after a miscarriage, but over the course of treatment, which included over 600 hours of hypnosis, Smith began recalling what she thought were repressed memories from her childhood. She said that she had been tortured and raped, made to drink blood, had witnessed murders, and that she was forced into a car with a human corpse—a car that was intentionally crashed. Smith said her torturers, which included her mother, were members of a satanic cult that performed rituals to summon the devil himself. The cover of Michelle Remembers shows a young girl in a blue dress, holding a baby doll and surrounded by candles. Above her, a devilish face with pointed ears looks down, cackling. The book, which was used in social work training programs, became a best-seller.

After publication, Padzer became famous. He was considered the expert in the phenomenon of recovered memories, and he appeared on 20/20, where he talked about satanic cults that he said where infiltrating previously quiet communities all over. He lectured to law enforcement, took part in seminars on satanic ritual abuse, testified in court, and, by the end of the decade, claimed to have consulted in over 1,000 cases involving recovered memories of ritual abuse. The media ate it up, as did many social workers, clergy members, and feminists: A 1993 cover of Ms. Magazine showed a baby being swaddled in a serpent’s tail. The text on the cover reads: “BELIEVE IT! Cult Ritual Abuse Exists.”

The problem is, it didn’t. The FBI investigated and found there were no cults terrorizing American suburbs at night and no teenage mom being force-fed their own babies and then forgetting about it by the time the school bus came the next day. In 1992, the Department of Justice concluded that widespread ritualistic satanic sex abuse cults were a myth. Eventually, many of the criminal cases were overturned and lawsuits were filed against the therapists and police departments who investigated them. The psychological establishment went through quite a reckoning, and after much research and internal debate, the entire concept of “repressed memories” was largely debunked. This episode went down in history as a moral panic, not that different from the Salem Witch Trials or the persistent idea that Halloween candy is regularly laced with poison or razor blades.

And yet, not that many years after the repressed memory craze has ended, it’s coming back. The terms have been updated: Today, “repressed memories” are called “traumatic dissociation,” but the concept is the same, and a new review of the research published in the journal Perspectives on Psychological Science found that 76 percent of clinical psychologists believe traumatic memories can be blocked for many years and then recalled later on, a rate that has grown since the so-called "Memory Wars" of the 1990s. They also found high rates of belief among law enforcement personnel, judges, and jurors. In fact, laypeople were actually less likely to believe in this concept than psychologists and other clinicians. The group least likely to believe it? Scientists working in the field of memory.

One of the more well-known skeptics of repressed memories is Elizabeth Loftus, a former professor at the University of Washington (her time at UW is a story in itself) and a co-author of this latest study. (Loftus also developed the "lost in the mall" experiment, which demonstrates how easily false memories can be implanted. Basically, if you tell people they were lost in the mall as children, they tend to "remember" it, even if the event never happened.)

Today, Loftus serves as an expert witness in abuse cases, and I spoke to her a few months ago, before this latest paper came out. “We've pretty much demolished the idea of mass repression as having any credible scientific support,” she told me. “So what the clinicians did to try to sell the idea is, they started calling it ‘dissociation.’ You can't really say there's no credible evidence against ‘dissociation’ because it's an umbrella term that includes many phenomena that do exist, things like thinking, ‘Oh my god, I can't remember if I shut the garage before I left.’ But I don't care what you call it. Show me any proof that you can be raped for years and be completely unaware of it and reliably recover it later. Just show me the scientific evidence.”

Loftus maintains that memory doesn’t work that way. Instead, she argues, trauma tends to be seared into the memory, and while memories are malleable and can be easily manipulated, evidence suggests that people do tend to remember traumatic, life-changing events.

“The notion that traumatic events can be repressed and later recovered is the most pernicious bit of folklore ever to infect psychology and psychiatry,” wrote Harvard psychologist Richard McNally in a letter to the Supreme Court when it was hearing a case that stemmed from recovered memories in 2005. “It has provided the theoretical basis for ‘recovered memory therapy’—the worst catastrophe to befall the mental health field since the lobotomy era.”

And yet, not only do therapists continue to treat people for “traumatic dissociation” (including at least one of the children who accused Jerry Sandusky of abuse) it’s also coming back in media and popular culture. In December 2018, a few months after Christine Blasey Ford testified against Supreme Court Justice Bret Kavanaugh in Congress, Cosmopolitan published an article about “Zoe,” a woman who claims to have been raped and remembered it years later. The author’s only acknowledgment that the entire concept of repressed memories has been debunked is captured in one parenthetical: “(the term ‘repressed memories’ is controversial among psychologists).” She goes on to define it as “a form of dissociative amnesia, a disorder in which a patient doesn’t actively remember something traumatic that happened to them, usually because they detached mentally during the event as a coping mechanism.”

According to Loftus and others, this is just repressed memories, updated and rebranded for the current era. And there is real danger to this: As we saw during the last repressed memory craze, believing allegations without evidence can, has, and will ruin lives. The psychological establishment, as well as victims’ advocates and the press, would do well to remember the past and work to prevent it from taking hold once again.

Either Tax the Rich or Make Money Spoil Like Cheese

 Cache   
by Charles Mudede
The New York Times piece by David Leonhardt, "The Rich Really Do Pay Lower Taxes Than You," claims that "for the first time on record, the 400 wealthiest Americans last year paid a lower total tax rate — spanning federal, state and local taxes — than any other income group..." The middle class, which has experienced very slow to no growth in wages, has not benefited much from this striking state of affairs. As for the working classes, they have seen money wages (what they earn, say $7 an hour) remain flat while their real wages (what that $7 an hour can buy) sharply decline.

Leonhardt correctly points out that low tax rates on the rich "actually harm[s the] American economy," but he fails to provide the needed link between taxes, which are collected by the government, and the economy, which is governed by the market. A proper explanation of this link is of vital importance because few in the public know what money actually is and what it does in a market-directed economy. The common opinion is that taxes fund the government, which, for many, has a dubious redistributive function. Even on the left, taxes are often described in purely moralistic terms. The government must punish those who have plenty so that it can reward those who are not fortunate. In this respect, taxes can be reduced to a matter of envy.

But the essential reason why it is necessary to heavily tax the rich is not so that the government can pay for social programs. The function of taxes is purely capitalistic. Taxes spoil money in much the same way that time spoils cheese or a loaf bread.


At this point, I must inform the reader that I'm eco-socialist (free energy, no-growth), and so what is presented below is not my opinon on the matter, but is instead an effort to make clear what capitalism is and what its limits and strengths are.

Now, for a deeper understanding of the function of money in a capitalist system, one needs to read the 17th chapter of John Maynard Keynes 1936 book, The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money. In that chapter, titled "The Essential Properties of Interest and Money," it's stated that, one, interest on money is "nothing more than the percentage excess of a sum of money contracted for forward delivery" (or, put more straightforwardly, that borrowed money will be returned in the future with more money added), and, two, that other capital-assets (something that can be bought or sold on the market) also have this property. You can have some form of interest set on bread or milk. But what makes money peculiar from other capital assets is that it has exceptionally low carry costs, and the consequence of this is that its "liquidity-premium" is very high. A banana, for example, has very high carrying costs. You need to store it, transport it, and sell it before it goes bad. These costs quickly diminish its value as a capital-asset. Not so with money.

John Maynard Keynes writes:

Different commodities may, indeed, have differing degrees of liquidity-premium amongst themselves, and money may incur some degree of carrying costs, e.g. for safe custody. But it is an essential difference between money and all (or most) other assets that in the case of money its liquidity-premium much exceeds its carrying cost, whereas in the case of other assets their carrying cost much exceeds their liquidity-premium.

An excellent example of one of the few carrying costs of money can be found in the report of a ATM machine that was stolen from a general store, Big Wally's, in a sleepy town that's between Washington's biggest cities, Seattle and Spokane, Coulee City. This is what happened: A man and woman used a cutting torch to break into the general store and unplugged the ATM, which stood next to a F'real fridge stocked with milkshakes, smoothies, and frozen cappuccinos. The machine was also beneath a mural of a monstrous fish (buggy eyes, razor-sharp teeth, muck-green scales, a fin like flames). The man and woman dragged the machine out of the store, loaded it into their SUV, and split. It is not hard to imagine what happened to this ATM after the theft, its body (wires, circuits, and chips) was eviscerated by an axe until it exposure its belly of cash. Indeed, “split the lark and you'll find the music." And what you will also find is one of the carrying costs of money: the need of safe custody.


Because the liquidity-premium of money is much higher than its carrying costs, it's an ideal medium for connecting the present to the future. The value it has now can be expected to remain a year from now. A egg, which is a commodity, just can't do this. But this peculiar property of money, as Keynes calls it, throws all sorts of difficulties and contradictions into the proper functioning of a capitalist system.

Recall Marx's words about how a miser "is merely a capitalist gone mad" because the way capital expands in a market economy is "by constantly throwing it afresh into circulation." Here, Marx was wrong, and Keynes saw the matter in a much better light. The business of throwing cash into circulation may have vividly been there at the early stages of capitalist accumulation, but soon, the future-value of money began to dominate. What Keynes understood is that it's not easy to induce capitalists to make big investments (building plants, producing goods, employing workers). They would much rather hold onto cash (liquidity preference) because cash has a much better connection with the future than, say, a factory or a restaurant. The consequence of the dominant propensity to hoard is that it removes capital from circulation, and this gums up the market's machinery. The idea that giving the rich money in the form of tax cuts because they will make investments is pure madness. The rich do not want to be entrepreneurs. Their goal is to accumulate wealth by-way-of rents (value increases on financial assets like property or bonds).

How can we prevent hoarding, and the resulting capital scarcity? By, of course, doing what carrying costs do to a banana. Meaning, by making money rot if it is stocked or stored for a long period of time. One way to make this happen is through deep, negative interest rates. Another, which Keynes mentions in the penultimate chapter of his book, is to put a time stamp on money—meaning, you need to use it or reissue it before the date on the dollar. Both these solutions, however, have the same flaw, which Keynes describes in this way:

The idea behind stamped money is sound. It is, indeed, possible that means might be found to apply it in practice on a modest scale. But there are many difficulties which Gesell did not face. In particular, he was unaware that money was not unique in having a liquidity-premium attached to it, but differed only in degree from many other articles, deriving its importance from having a greater liquidity-premium than any other article. Thus if currency notes were to be deprived of their liquidity-premium by the stamping system, a long series of substitutes would step into their shoes—bank-money, debts at call, foreign money, jewelery and the precious metals generally, and so forth.

Exactly. Taxes, however, are as fluid as the medium of money (change it, and we can tax that change), and can also make money rotten. This is why the rich hate taxes so much. It's not that money is taken away from them, but that high taxes turn money, to use Keynes' expression, into "green cheese." At that point, you can finally force, by state authority, the rich to become Marx's sane capitalists, or you can fund, in Mariana Mazzucato's sense, state entrepreneurialism. As Keynes wrote: "The important thing for government is not to do things which individuals are doing already, and to do them a little better or a little worse; but to do those things which at present are not done at all."

Combine state intervention with taxes and the rich must throw cash into actual investments, into circulation, to keep them rich. This is not trickle down economics; its deluge economics. And this flood would eliminate the scarcity of capital.

UK Show Press Makes You Wonder Why There Aren't More Shows About Newspapers

 Cache

Not to toot my industry’s own horn, but a newspaper's office is the PERFECT setting for a TV show. It’s an infinitely rich mine of opportunities for drama: The day-to-day pressures of deadlines. The excitement of landing a secret scoop. The ever-shifting sands of a changing industry model. The hierarchy of office politics. The familial camaraderie of a high-pressure workplace. The ambition of those starting out juxtaposed with the wisdom (or lack thereof) of the higher-ups on the food chain. The sexiness of being near the center of national discourse combined with the drudgery of meeting word counts. The moral dilemma of being urged to bury a compromising piece. The feeling of self-righteous heroism that comes with protecting one's sources. The ridiculousness of the fame-hungry and powerful who seek (or try to elude) coverage. The detective work of gathering facts and putting together an investigative report.

The six-episode BBC show Press—which is on KCTS 9 on Sundays as part of PBS’s Masterpiece—covers all these types of stories and more. Set at two competing London newspapers, Press sets the struggling, social-justice-oriented Herald against the slick, sleazy Post.

It’s tempting to compare the latter paper to the Sun, but the makers of the show—writer/creator Mike Bartlett and director Tom Vaughn—say there’s no direct correlation between their two fictitious papers and any real-life Fleet Street analogues. Similarly, the politics of the day are utterly ignored, save for a slight tug-of-war between the liberal writers at the Herald and the jaundiced, somewhat unethical reporting style of the Post. Brexit, for example, is mercifully not mentioned at all.

The show is capital-T Television, in that it favors pot-boiling and methodical plotting in favor of realism. Crises accumulate like used coffee cups in the break room, and the reporters and editors are all quirky, quick-quipped, and superhumanly competent at their jobs. There’s something comforting and Aaron Sorkin-y about the way Press bubbles along, with a clutch of neatly interlocking characters all defined entirely by their work.

The two main figures are the Herald’s idealistic, hard-working deputy news editor Holly Evans (Charlotte Riley) and the glib, dirty-dealing editor-in-chief of the Post, Duncan Allen (Ben Chaplin). The supporting characters are equally strong, including Amina (Priyanga Burford), the Herald’s fiercely intelligent editor-in-chief, David Suchet as the mysterious owner of the Post, and Ellie Kendrick (Game of Thrones’s Meera!) as a plucky up-and-coming reporter. The one weak link is Paapa Essiedu as Ed, a new hire at the Post; his character’s moral ambiguity seems at odds with his seemingly conflicted inner emotional life.

The problem with Ed gets ironed out as the show goes along, and indeed all of Press improves as it progresses—always the sign of a good show. There’s a fair amount of table-setting to be done in the first two episodes, and some of the characters and relationships require a leap of faith to fully invest in. It’s not a perfect show by any means (it’s not even really a great one), but it is a very entertaining thing to watch indeed, as it's in the old-fashioned vein of pre-peak TV, in which a versatile setting and well-written characters provide never-ending fuel for all kinds of episodic situations. Chaplin, in particular, gets more interesting as the show goes on, once you’ve decided to buy into his character’s utter assholery. Other characters, like Amina, reveal new depths as things unfold; and unlike the reset factor that exists in so many weekly shows, the characters do evolve over time.

This first season (or “series," as they call it in the UK) ends somewhat abruptly on a cliffhanger, so one has to assume more Press is on the way from the BBC. It could be a year or two until it gets here, but they’ve laid more than enough groundwork to last several seasons. And although the show is not particularly edgy or fresh—it’s airing stateside as part of granny favorite Masterpiece, after all—it is fun, and fully addictive. And while the show offers a kind of heightened-reality, not-particularly-authentic version of working at a newspaper (huge problems are revealed, then immediately solved during bizarrely frequent—and meticulously scripted—editorial meetings; characters work through the night with alarming regularity), it does get enough little things right to make its significant leaps of faith forgivable.

And the show's imperfections reminded me of the frantic, slap-a-coat-of-paint-on-it nature of a real-life working newsroom. In fact, Press is a fertile enough milieu to make you wonder why we’ve hardly gotten any shows set at newspapers over the years. Magazines? Sure, plenty of shows about those. But newspapers? We’ve got Shrill, Lois and Clark, that one season of The Wire, and… that’s about it? Some American studio should steal the premise from Press and make its own show set at a newspaper—before it’s too late and all of the papers are gone from this earth.


Press shows on KCTS 9 on Sundays at 10 p.m.

Track of the day is the hypnotic percussion storm "Banyuwangi" by Peruvian innovators Dengue Dengue Dengue. by Dave Segal
Best new band alert.
Best "new" band alert. Enchufada

Dengue Dengue Dengue, "Banyuwangi" (Enchufada)

Over the last seven years, Berlin-via-Lima, Peru ensemble Dengue Dengue Dengue have progressed to the forefront of South America's digital cumbia movement. The press release for their extraordinary new album, Zenit & Nadir, refers to genres (zouk, kuduro) and an instrument (the quijada, a percussive tool forged from a donkey’s jawbone; you can see it played here) with which I'm not very familiar. However, no esoteric knowledge is necessary to realize that this shit is amazing. The strange timbres and unconventionally hypnotic rhythms that DDD generate from these elements coalesce into a record that feels at once ancient and futuristic, as well as inexhaustible in its inventiveness.

For this album, DDD members Felipe Salmon and Rafael Pereira enlisted members of the Ballumbrosio family, a revered Peruvian musical dynasty. The Ballumbrosios bring their expertise for landó, festejo, and crioullo rhythms (all new terms to me) to DDD's mysterious, hyperreal productions, helping the duo to cast wicked spells over Zenit & Nadir's 12 tracks.

"Banyuwangi" burbles with an undulating swiftness, like a Southern Hemisphere cousin of Talking Heads' "I Zimbra." A woodwind instrument—ocarina? piccolo? flute?—flutters spiritually over the oddly metallic percussive ripples, and by the track's midpoint, I don't who or where I am... nor do I care. You have no idea how rare and wonderful a feeling this is. "Banyuwangi" is one Ricardo Villalobos remix away from becoming a global dance sensation. Somebody in Seattle please book Dengue Dengue Dengue.

🚨What's Their Issue?🚨 Dan Strauss vs. Heidi Wills

 Cache   
What do Strauss and Wills disagree on? by Nathalie Graham

Welcome to the election column from The Stranger that looks at the biggest policy issue dividing each pair of candidates fighting for a seat on the Seattle City Council.

In District 1, it was funding homeless service policies. In District 2, it was the candidates' approach to police accountability. District 3, it was progressive taxation. District 4 was zoning. District 5 was the criminalization of homelessness. Today...

District 6: It's Dan Strauss, the chief policy adviser to Council Member Sally Bagshaw and former Ballard paperboy, vs. Heidi Wills, the ex-city councilmember who went down in a Strippergate shame spiral but who's raring to sink her teeth back into city politics.

1570144024-council-district-map_1_.jpg#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/147518&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com

What’s the biggest issue that divides Strauss and Wills?

Strauss says: Campaign contributions.

In a statement to The Stranger, Strauss wrote:

The contrast between us is demonstrated through our support and contributions. I am running a grassroots campaign and I have the most organizational endorsements. I have maintained the highest number of overall donors and in-district donors and have an average donation of $80, while my opponent's average donation is $107. I have received $91.24 in independent expenditure support, while my opponent has received $111,901.74.

My opponent is out-fundraising me with support from the same people who funded her last campaign: developers, downtown special interests, and the biggest businesses. I have returned checks that I think have strings attached - because I am accountable to the people of District 6, not special interests.

Wills says: Nothing.

Wills did not respond to multiple requests for comment from The Stranger.

We say: Homeless sweeps.

Homelessness has Ballard up in arms. Last year, homelessness quadrupled in the neighborhood. The city even introduced a "park concierge" this summer in the Ballard Commons to make sure everything is hunky-dory (aka, there are no homeless people camping in the park). Current City Council Member Mike O'Brien, though affable and progressive, won himself little favor amongst his constituents for his championing of homelessness issues. Whoever helms District 6 next will be faced with similar challenges as Seattle's homeless population continues to grow. Will they steer clear of O'Brien's approaches? Will they let public outrage dictate how they legislate?

Wills supports sweeping homeless encampments. At a recent debate, she called them “the only tool the city has to help people find the services that they need."

This, additionally, was her vague answer to Real Change News when she was asked twice about her position on sweeps:

I think that the people living in tents in parks and in open spaces without hygienic facilities is really problematic, and I think that we need to ensure that there’s a place, of course, for people to go.

Strauss, on the other hand, is against sweeps. He said in that same debate that he was against them unless there's a public-health reason for clearing an encampment. If not, the Navigation Team, the team that conducts the homeless sweeps, is "wasting money," Strauss said.

"Unless there’s a public safety or public health reason," he added, "we’re just using our dollars inefficiently because we don’t have a place for people to go."

According to a recent report by Erica C. Barnett, the Navigation Team is infective and "only about 8 percent of people the Navigation Team contacts when they’re removing encampments—128 out of 1,583—actually end up in shelter."

Tim Heidecker’s Mister America Is Funny (If You’ve Also Seen Everything Else Tim Heidecker Has Ever Done)

 Cache   
by Morgan Troper
Some of you might not get it and thats okay.
Some of you might not get it and that's okay. Magnolia Pictures

At the end of 2017, Tim Heidecker’s On Cinemaa web series lampooning film criticism that the comedian co-hosts with Gregg Turkington—apexed with a five-hour long, fictitious murder trial. Despite overwhelming evidence that Tim Heidecker’s character was guilty of several counts of murder (several attendees at a fake music festival he funded overdosed on vape pens, which these days hits a little too close to home), Heidecker was found innocent—and promptly launched a garish social media campaign around his implausible candidacy for San Bernardino district attorney.

This is where the feature-length film Mister America—which screens at the Beacon on Wednesday—comes in. It's a spin-off of a spin-off of a goofy web-series, and will likely only entertain those who have fully immersed themselves in the On Cinema universe—which, when taking into account the show’s 10 seasons, its annual Oscar specials, and its self-contained offshoot Decker, clocks in at an agonizing 20 hours of content.

If you are one of those people, Mister America is frequently funny. At best, it plays like a bizarro version of The War Room—just sub George Stephanopoulos with a woefully incompetent publicist-turned-campaign advisor named Toni (Terry Parks) and Bill Clinton for Heidecker’s On Cinema persona, a mix of O.J. Simpson and Trump. But just as often, Mister America's comedy is imperceptible: Take one early scene, when Heidecker and Toni discuss immigration. It doesn’t seem like a parody, and there’s no punchline. It just feels like a legitimately racist conversation, and it speaks to the dangers of ineffective satire. By the end of the film, when Heidecker breaks down and apologizes to his constituents after a violent outburst at a town hall debate, you don’t even feel sorry for the guy. You just want him out of your sight.

Slog AM: State Department Blocks Trump-Ukraine Witness, China Wars with NBA, Southwest Pilots Sue Boeing

The ire of China: The Houston Rockets. Also South Park. And Hong Kong. Its a whole thing.

Seattle City Council limits environmental reviews: Wait! Don't sharpen those pitchforks just yet. This is a good thing. The council has curbed State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA) appeals because they are a hindrance to progress and used as a speed bump by critics of projects. SEPA has been weaponized to slow down controversial construction. The council will ban SEPA appeals on all up-zoning projects around transit stations, allowing multifamily units on single-family zoned parcels, and more. There will also be a 120-day limit for appeals unless both sides agree to more. Maybe this will speed up the ol' Seattle process?

State Department orders Trump-Ukraine witness not to speak: Gordon Sondland, the United States ambassador to the European Union, has been ordered by the Trump administration to not appear for his scheduled hearings in front of three House committees on Tuesday. He has no choice but to comply, according to his attorneys. The House Democrats have warned the Trump administration not to interfere in the investigation. This could be used as evidence of obstruction, something on par with impeachment, in the House's opinion. Trump and his team are attempting to quell further cooperation.

Representative Adam Schiff speaks up: Mike Pompeo also missed a Friday deadline to produce documents. The House has now subpoenaed those. One witness has failed to show and another has been pressured not to. Other witness testimonies this week are shakier now.

Sondland's testimony and his evidence are held hostage: According to Schiff, the State Department is holding onto Sondland's texts and e-mails that are on his personal device:

Cause of Ballard fire still unknown: Crews had yet to determine the cause of a three-alarm fire in Ballard on Monday that caused the total destruction of five beloved small businesses. The first 911 call came when a Supercuts employee smelled smoke. A GoFundMe was established by the Ballard Alliance and has, of Tuesday morning, raised a little over $9,000.

Everyone should have naloxone: Listen, the opioid crisis isn't going anywhere and it's even deadlier since fentanyl, the synthetic opioid stronger than heroin, is so prolific. It's safe to assume that any given drug could be tainted with fentanyl. While health officials have tests that can determine whether fentanyl is in a drug, there's no way to tell how much. Everyone should have naloxone, the overdose-reversal drug. There's a statewide prescription.

It's nippy out today: How did we ever get anything done in the winter? It's too cold to even leave my bed right now. I think I might have to be buried here. Or maybe it's time to turn the heat on in our house.

Don't drink and e-scoot: Oktoberfest attendees in Germany found that out the hard way. There were 414 people who were caught driving e-scooters while intoxicated during the Munich beer festival. They lost their licenses.

And now a dispatch from Lester Black: Dave Segal promised that Tinariwen's trance-like blues rock would "flow like medicine for the heart," and Monday night's show at Benaroya Hall proved the prescience of those words. Tinariwen wove a dazzling mix of chants, guitar riffs, and Taureg percussion into an epic tour de force while the crowd danced in the aisles of the symphonic venue, providing demonstrable proof that Seattleites have no rhythm. Although maybe it was just a weird crowd; I saw one goateed man burst into tears during one of opener Lonnie Holley's rambling psychedelic masterpieces.

Southwest Airlines is suing Boeing: Because of the grounding of the 737 MAX 8 planes, the aircraft responsible for two fatal plane crashes. Southwest Airlines had more than 30,000 flights canceled, which cost pilots more than $100 million in lost wages.

China dumps South Park: The most recent episode of the animated series has offended the Chinese government and the show is now banned in China. It took aim at China's censorship practices and how media companies (cough Disney cough) must capitulate to Chinese standards in order to do business there. Anyway, it's a whole hubbub. This is the apology that Trey Parker and Matt Stone, South Park's creators, issued:

Wait, what was that about the NBA and China? The general manager of the Houston Rockets tweeted a message over the weekend in support of the pro-democracy protesters in Hong Kong. China is not happy. The NBA quickly groveled, apologizing for the comments and trying to separate them from the league itself. This week, the Lakers and the Brooklyn Nets will play two exhibition games in China. The most recent development is that the Taiwanese owner of the Brooklyn Nets called the Hong Kong protests a "separatist movement," echoing the language Beijing has used.

NBA commissioner Adam Silver defended the pro-Hong Kong tweets: And now China is reevaluating their entire relationship with the NBA. They have suspended the current broadcast arrangement for preseason games in China.

California will allow HIV prevention pills without a prescription: It's the first state to do so.

Happy Tuesday: I hope it can be at least a little bit like this video.

Today's EverOut picks are: A talk on US transit systems with Christof Spieler, the quasi-adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, Austen's Pride, and a show with much-loved '70s-era punks Stiff Little Fingers. See more on our EverOut Things To Do calendar.

Slog PM: Three-Alarm Fire in Ballard; Fancy Anti-Sawant Sign in D3; Ballard P-Patch Wants Some of That Sweet, Sweet Soda Tax Money

 Cache   
by Chase Burns
Seattle homeowners are out here adopting Trumpian rhetoric to kick out a council member building a movement for rent control.
Cute! A Seattle homeowner put up this pretty sign to encourage people to vote out a council member building a movement for rent control! Anonymous

A friend of Stranger reporter Eli Sanders spotted this sign while walking through District 3: For more reporting on Council Member Sawant and her opponent, Egan Orion, read Lester Black and Rich Smith here and here.

McConnell bucks Trump: Today, Trump announced he would pull US troops from northern Syria. The announcement, sponsored by Trump's "unmatched wisdom," brought chaos to Washington.


Republicans and Democrats sorta united in their criticism against Trump: McConnell said the move would cause "a precipitous withdrawal of US forces from Syria [that] would only benefit Russia, Iran, and the Assad regime." He continued: "Major new conflict between Turkey and our partners in Syria would seriously risk damaging Turkey's ties to the United States and causing greater isolation for Turkey on the world stage." TRUMP, BABY, WHY ARE YOU DAMAGING ALL YOUR RELATIONSHIPS? (Is it because Putin's got that pee-pee tape?)

Warren is going off about Facebook and Trump: In related news, Washington state is going after Facebook again for failing to disclose details about the local political ads it sells in the state.

The Impossible Burger is the "Lizzo of the plant-based food market": Impossible Burger, meet the Impossible Comparison.

These retired gardeners aren't fucking around: The Ballard P-Patch is so popular that it has a two-year waiting list. Now, the garden is threatened by potential redevelopment and must raise funds to stay on the property: up to $2 million, reports the Seattle Times. They've raised approximately $49,000, which isn't close to $2 million. But the people are not afraid. They think they can get some of that $3 million the soda tax raised to save their P-Patch. (Unlikely.) I especially liked this passage from the Times report:

Another volunteer is Cindy Krueger, 67, who put in years at everything from a firm that managed projects, to another that ran creative productions and events. It’s a background that means she’s not intimidated by big PDF documents or bureaucracies.

“Back in 1985, we did the first Microsoft meeting, 85 people at the Red Lion in Bellevue. Steve Ballmer with a slide projector – ‘This is Windows,’ ” she remembers.

Now saving the P-Patch has become her full-time job.

Three-alarm fire in Ballard: A major fire broke out in the heart of Ballard on the corner of Northwest Market Street and 24th Ave this afternoon, with firefighters coming from around the city to battle the blaze for over three hours. A total of ~150 firefighters fought the fire, getting it under control by about 3:30 p.m. Several businesses—La Isla, Pho Big Bowl, Supercuts, Kitchen N Things, and Octo Designs & Jewelers—were severely impacted by the fire. "All five businesses were expected to be a total loss," a Seattle Fire Department spokesperson originally told the Seattle Times, although now it looks like Pho Big Bowl may be somewhat saved. Crews are expected to stay at the site overnight to make sure the fire doesn't start up again. The Times has more coverage of the fire here.

One of The Stranger's Tech-Savvy/At-Risk Youth lives near the fire and sent us an update: "All the hydrants in use have stirred gunk up in the water main; this is what's coming out of my faucet right now." A pic:

Gross.
Gross. Grant Hendrix

Ew: Sorry, Grant!

Trump must reveal his tax returns: A federal judge has rejected Trump's attempt to prevent Manhattan state prosecutors from reviewing his tax returns. His returns are still protected, however, for now. "His lawyers quickly appealed to the Second Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan, which agreed to temporarily delay enforcement of the subpoena while it considers arguments in the case," writes the New York Times.

Rainbow crosswalks are hitting the nation: But the federal government is asking cities to get rid of them, suggesting they're unsafe. A letter sent by the Federal Highway Administration reads that the gay-ass crosswalks diminish "the contrast between the white lines and the pavement, potentially decreasing the effectiveness of the crosswalk markings and the safety of pedestrian traffic.” But urbanists are saying this is bullshit. (Mr. Pence, I think you have bigger things to worry about right now??)

The youth may not rock the vote this fall: But maybe the techies will.

Landlords are worried they may have to pay the price now that WeWork is crashing: Two London landlords told the Financial Times they're creating backup plans for when the company goes down in smoke. (Too soon?) "It would not be prudent for us to do anything [new] with them until we see how the new management will operate," said one landlord. Meanwhile, we over here in Stranger World Headquarters are patiently eating popcorn and waiting to see what will happen with the half-empty mega WeWork office being built next door to us.

This gender reveal video is really funny: My gender is also an intangible black balloon. (Black Balloon, by the way, is the name of a movie that stars Toni Collette.)

Roller Derby Finds a Home in Bitter Lake

 Cache   
by Nathalie Graham
Thats a FRESH white line for roller derby and roller derby alone.
That's a FRESH white line for roller derby and roller derby alone. Nathalie Graham

Roller derby finally has a permanent home in Seattle.

Bitter Lake Community Center became the first community center in Seattle to get permanent roller derby lines painted on its gym floor. There are currently no facilities where derby can play besides in community centers, and no other community center in Seattle has painted derby lines.

There was a ribbon-cutting ceremony over the weekend. The space—though not very big—is enough. The derby community, happy and relieved, turned out in droves for the first official skate on the track.

It all started over some tape.

Seattle roller derby, after losing facilities first in Southgate and then in Shoreline, had nowhere to practice or play save for Seattle community centers. Though they appreciated the space, it wasn't meant for roller derby; there weren't any lines on the floor to designate a derby track.

Potential Fresh Meat (PFM), a local recreational derby league, was fine with that. They would just tape their lines down. Except, the Magnuson Community Center was worried it would damage the floors. Couldn't derby just use cones? Despite PFM making their case (No, they couldn't use cones, they needed lines), it was determined that they could not use tape on the gym floors.

So, roller derby jumped skates first into the Seattle process.

"It was like 60 meetings within six months," Melissa Hall, a former Seattle City Council candidate and forever derby girl, told me.

What started as an issue about taping down lines became a call to action for getting permanent derby lines painted on community center gyms across the city.

"There was a tangible fear that derby would disappear," Hall told me.

According to PFM, derby in Seattle is 95 percent women and Seattle was the first city to start a junior league—the Seattle Derby Brats (SDB). Youth derby is growing exponentially; SDB has a deep waitlist and PFM just kickstarted their own junior league last month.

PFM say they lobbied committee after committee. They showed up to Seattle Park District Board meetings. They sent letters. They appealed to council members just so they could stay alive as a sport. Eventually, it worked.

"After reviewing the various sizes of our gyms, gathering input from the roller derby community," Seattle Parks and Recreation wrote in a statement, "we are proposing the painting of permanent roller derby lines at up to 17 sites across Seattle Parks & Recreation Community Centers over the next two years as floors are refinished on our typical cycle."

For now, derby has the opportunity to continue as a sport. The other gyms that will have permanent derby lines painted on them have yet to be decided. In the meantime, PFM will be allowed to use tape on the floors of the Magnuson Community Center.

"Having this kind of buy-in really matters," Hall said while hoisting up her young daughter who was wobbling unsteadily on pink skates. "This is how we secure roller derby for a long time. It's how I'm sure my baby will be able to play if she wants to."

🚨What's Their Issue?🚨 Debora Juarez vs. Ann Davison Sattler

 Cache   
What do Juarez and Sattler most disagree on? by Lester Black

Welcome to a new election column from The Stranger that looks at the biggest policy issue dividing each pair of candidates fighting for a seat on the Seattle City Council this fall. In District 1, we decided it was funding homeless service policies. In District 2, it was the candidates' approach to police accountability. In District 3, it was progressive taxation. In District 4, it was zoning laws. Today...

District 5: Council Member Debora Juarez versus challenger Ann Davison Sattler. Juarez, a veteran attorney specializing in Native American law, is running for her second term on the council. Sattler, also an attorney, is running for office for the first time. Jaurez earned 45.1 percent of the August primary vote while Sattler won 26.7 percent of the primary vote. If you're wondering where District 5 is:

What’s the biggest issue that divides Juarez and Sattler?

Juarez and Sattler say: Absolutely nothing. Neither candidate responded to our repeated requests to participate in this story.

What we say: the criminalization of homelessness.

Sattler has focused much of her campaign on solving the city’s homelessness crisis and a central tenet of her platform is forcing homeless people off the streets. She’s called on the city and the Seattle Police Department to aggressively go after people sleeping outside and force them into shelters, writing on her website that “the only way to ensure the crisis will improve is by enforcing no-street-camping regulations.”

Many service providers and homeless people themselves say removing encampments does not reduce the visible homeless population and only further destabilizes at-risk populations. They also point out that there are legal problems with enforcing anti-camping laws.

A recent federal court case led to a ruling that it’s “cruel and unusual” punishment for cities to ban camping if they don’t also provide enough shelter space for the people being removed. But Sattler has a somewhat crazy plan to solve this: she wants to create “refugee style” tent shelters to house thousands of people together inside three abandoned warehouses across the city. A shelter expert said the financial numbers behind her plan did not make sense, on top of it being problematic to house thousands of people together in makeshift shelters.

Juarez has called for the removal of specific encampments in her North Seattle district, saying in one Facebook post that city departments need to “enforce the laws of the city of Seattle,” but she has also said she opposes aggressively sweeping the homeless. Juarez told the Stranger Election Control Board (SECB) that she does not support Mayor Jenny Durkan’s increase in the frequency and aggressiveness of homeless sweeps (Durkan’s administration removed 75 percent more encampments in the first four months of 2019 compared to the previous year, according to the Seattle Times). Juarez also told the SECB that cops should instead focus on actual crimes.

“If people are selling drugs,” Juarez told the SECB, “if they are assaulting people, if there are raping people, if they are running a sex ring which we had on Lake City Way, they should be arrested. I don’t care if you are in a tent or a house. But I don’t think that just because a bunch of neighbors are pissed off that someone put up two tents because they have nowhere to go, that you should send out three officers to remove them.”

Reader Floats Potential Fix For Frustrations of Online Dating

Savage Love Letter of the Day by Dan Savage
SAVAGE-Letter-of-the-Day-STAMP-2019.jpg#utm_source=googlier.com/page/2019_10_08/147526&utm_campaign=link&utm_term=googlier&utm_content=googlier.com
A bit about me, I am in my 30s, female, single, and looking for something serious.

I’ve done online dating off and on over the past ten years. I’ve had some great experiences, and some not so great… who am I kidding? I’ve had some nightmares. I’m tired of investing a lot of time getting to know someone through online messaging and then it goes nowhere. Or spending hours getting ready for a date—after the requisite getting to know you through online messaging—only to find out mid-date that he's already in a 15-year relationship and thought I’d be cool with non-monogamy. (I'm not, David!) Or, after 5-6 dates that have progressed to the overnight stage finding out he is not interested in a long-term relationship or even better, he's ghosting me. (I just assume they died horrible tragic deaths—because what other explanation could there be? I mean, your penis was in my vagina and then you just... what? Decide you never want to talk to me again? No goodbye? No peace out?)

Anyhow... I get it, these are the risks of dating, and even if I date someone for a year or five years, it could all be for naught. My problem is that I am incredibly busy—I'm doing my PhD and working 3 jobs—and I can’t juggle talking to a bunch of people or going on multiple first dates. I don’t want to call it quits (although I am okay with being single) but I want a more efficient process. So after doing a cost benefit analysis, the amount of effort, time, and resources put into this process makes it seem like a losing game. I’m at a point in my life where I want to meet someone and be in a serious long-term, monogamous relationship. Whereas in the past I didn’t really care if these things went nowhere (I was 25 years old!) now I am finding it very frustrating and mostly just a waste of my time.

So… I had this idea: I’d send a message to all my prospective matches (guys who I matched with but hadn't had a conversation with yet) and tell them that I’d like to save us both the time and effort and so I am hosting a meet-and-greet session. I plan to be at a certain coffee spot on a certain date/time and they are welcome to stop by and meet me, but this invite will be sent to about twenty other people, so they go in knowing other guys may be there. I figure a handful will actually show, so it’s a useful way to meet a few guys and also weed out others. I’ll include the message I was thinking of sending out (as an appendix at the end) so you can see what I mean.

I am getting some mixed reviews. My friend sent it to her brother who is doing online dating and he reacted by saying “That’s insane! Any normal guy would pass on that prospect. If she sent me that letter I’d block, delete, and share with all my friends along with the laughing face emoji!” (Just for reference he is 29.) The same friend’s father, also single (age 60) and doing online dating, reacted differently: “This is brilliant. Just be safe.” Of course I would be safe.

So, my questions for you, Dan, are these: Is this idea crazy? Am I going to attract the wrong type of guy? Or no guys? Or all the guys? Should I just play the dating game as it’s been established and hope for the best?

Operation Meet & Greet

P.S. I'm live outside Toronto, and I was hoping to come and see you on Friday, if I can fit it into my schedule. On the other hand, I might be putting OMG into action on that date!

Appendix: OMG Message to Prospective Dates

Hi [insert name],

You are [shared interest here] and so I think we’d be a great match! I don’t know what your experience has been with online dating, but I have been wishing there was a more efficient process so that I don’t waste my time or someone else’s with chats that go nowhere or first dates that end up being a dud. I’m incredibly busy and the thought of going on fifty first dates that go nowhere, or having 100s of conversations that turn into nothing, makes this whole dating process really time-consuming with little, or no, return on time and effort invested.

So, that being said, I had this crazy idea where I would invite a bunch of potential first dates to a meet-and-greet session. You can stop by and say hello—or you can leave if you catch a glimpse of me and decide you’d rather not meet. We can chat for five minutes or an hour. Then if you're interested in a legit first date, you can message me after the meet and greet and we can set something up if the feeling is mutual.

I want to assure you I’m not interested in a casual hook-up and I am taking this seriously, but I just want to find a way to meet people that is respectful of both of our time, and allows us to meet without all the pressure that can come with online dating. I’ve never done this before, so it’s a bit of a leap for me. I plan on being at the [name of coffee shop] located at [address of coffee shop] between the hours of 7 pm and 10 pm on [insert date here]. If you are free and want to stop by and say hello, I would love to meet you.

[My name here]

So... basically... you're inviting twenty guys to a cattle-call audition or to appear on your own personal, low-key, low-stakes version of The Bachelorette?

While I imagine it would be an interesting experiment and while I hope you go ahead with it and report back to us, OMG, my hunch is more men will react like your friend's brother than your friend's father. As much as any individual dude might've wanna meet you... at least until that email came... most guys aren't gonna want to wait in line for five minutes alone with you. I mean, would you wanna wait in a line of twenty women for five minutes alone with a man who didn't think—based on your profile—that you were worth a quick DM exchange and a short solo coffee date? Do you not see the implicit insult built into the ask?

As I understand it, OMG, it's the suitors jockeying for position/advantage that makes The Bachelorette compelling viewing, OMG, as perceived/engineered scarcity and sexual competitiveness invariably bring out the worst in everyone. (Men on The Bachelorette, women on The Bachelor.) So before you went ahead with this experiment, OMG, you should do what I haven't done and watch a few episodes of The Bachelorette. Then ask yourself if the kind of guys you might be inadvertently self-selecting for are really to your taste.

Finally, you say you're too busy to date, with three jobs and a PhD to finish. Do you really have time for a relationship at all right now? Monogamous or not? Short-lived or life-long? If you wanna have that partner nailed down before you finish your PhD, I would suggest setting one lunch break aside a week for a quick meet up with an individual—just one—match from a dating app. And my recent advice for SLAP applies to you too...

If you stay on the apps, invest less time and energy in the men you're matched with in advance of a first face-to-face meeting. That means no more marathon, weeks-long text exchanges with someone you've never met and might never meet and who might not be single or might not look like his pictures or might not even be a man. Exchange a few texts to establish interest and then ask them to meet up for coffee or a drink. If you're too busy at work on a particular week to meet up with someone in the next few days, stay off the apps that week. If someone can't meet up with you or ghost on you, block 'em and move on.

And, hey, if you do attempt this on Friday... maybe do it in the afternoon before my show in Toronto? Then you can come to the talk and give me (and my audience) a full report!

New Vape Ban Details: Pot Terpenes OK, Bubblegum Not So Much

It's hard to make sense of Inslee's emergency action. by Lester Black

The Washington Department of Health (DOH) released new details Friday night regarding Gov. Jay Inslee’s emergency ban on flavored vaporizers, specifying exactly what the state will consider a “flavored” vape cartridge when the expected ban goes into place, likely later this week. The ban will block anyone from selling e-cigarettes or pot vaporizers that taste like anything other than cannabis or tobacco.

That means e-cigarettes that taste like fruit, menthol, mint, or any other non-tobacco flavor will be outlawed in Washington. Pot vaporizers flavored with non-cannabis flavorings will also be blocked under the ban.

E-cigarette retailers in Washington have warned that the ban will destroy their businesses. Vape store owners in Massachusetts and New York have filed lawsuits seeking to block flavor bans in those states.

Inslee announced his emergency vape ban last month amid a nationwide outbreak of vape-related lung disease. The outbreak has sickened more than 1,000 people and 18 deaths have been associated with the mysterious illness. Health officials are confident vaping is causing the sickness, but they have yet to determine exactly what is making people sick.

The majority of the cases have been connected to black market pot vaporizers and evidence has emerged that harmful additives like vitamin E oil and heavy metals leaking from shoddy black market cartridges could be getting people sick.

The emergency flavor ban is expected to be voted on at the state Board of Health’s Wednesday meeting in Seattle. The temporary ban will go into effect the following day and last for 120 days, according to Kelie Kahler, a spokesperson for the State Board of Health.

"While we can’t speculate how the board will vote, the ban, if it were to go into effect... would go into effect the next day," Kahler said.

Inslee’s flavoring ban is unusual because the governor himself admitted at a press conference that there was zero evidence flavorings are causing the outbreak. Yet the legal language behind his flavor ban says exactly the opposite (emphasis added):

The immediate adoption of a rule prohibiting the sale of flavored vapor products is necessary to prevent and reduce youth and young adult exposure to severe lung disease associated with the use of vapor products.

Tara Lee, a spokesperson for the governor, said the flavored vape ban will prevent exposure to the lung illnesses because it will stop kids from getting addicted to vaping in the first place.

"As the governor said at the press conference, flavors are often used to hook kids, to get them started vaping in the first place," Lee said in an e-mail. "If kids don’t start vaping, then they won’t be exposed to the chemicals and other potentially harmful ingredients in the vaping liquids. That seems pretty straightforward to me."

Inslee’s emergency rules do not take any action regarding the regulation of additives, heavy metals, pesticides, or other compounds that are known to cause illnesses when inhaled and have been found in black market vaporizers. For example, vitamin E acetate, a compound that we know gets people sick and we know has been found in black market vaporizers, is still a completely legal additive for cannabis vaporizers in the state. His emergency rules are also not calling for direct regulation of E-cigarettes i
