Adobe aims to tap $128 billion opportunity in 2022

 Cache   

Los Angeles: Adobe's stock went up after the software major announced robust earnings forecast for its fiscal 2020 that exceeded analysts' expectations.

The total addressable market for Adobe Experience Cloud is expected to increase to $84 billion by 2022, driven by increased demand for data and insights, content and personalisation, commerce, customer journey management and advertising, Adobe said on Monday.

The company forecasts revenue to reach $13.15 billion in the year beginning December 1 and digital Media segment revenue to grow over 19 per cent (year-over-year).

"Our strategy to unleash creativity, accelerate document productivity and power digital businesses is driving our growth and represents a $128 billion opportunity in 2022," said Shantanu Narayen, President and CEO, Adobe.

"Our expanding universe of customers, strong global brand, market-leading products and continued innovation positions us for a stellar 2020," he added.

At its core, Adobe's Creative Cloud strategy is about unleashing creativity for all, which is driving an increase in Creative Cloud total addressable market for 2022 to approximately $31 billion across creative professionals, communicators and consumers.

Adobe continues to benefit from the paper-to-digital transformation.

With trillions of PDFs created every year and approximately two billion Adobe mobile and reader users, the total addressable market for Adobe Document Cloud is expected to grow to $13 billion by 2022, said the software major.

Based on strong quarter-to-date performance, Adobe indicated it is raising its Q4 fiscal year 2019 Digital Media net new annualized recurring revenue (ARR) target to approximately $475 million, an increase of $25 million above its prior target.

Adobe also affirmed it is on track to achieve Q4 revenue of $2.97 billion.


          

Adobe joins NYT, Twitter to ensure digital content attribution

 Cache   

Los Angeles: With an aim to provide proper content attribution for creators and publishers to ensure trust and transparency online, Adobe along with The New York Times and Twitter on Monday announced the "Content Authenticity Initiative".

The goal is to develop an industry standard for digital content attribution and let designers get credit for their work.

"With the proliferation of digital content, people want to know the content they're seeing is authentic," said Dana Rao, Executive Vice President and General Counsel, Adobe.

"It is critical for technology and media companies to come together now in order to empower consumers to better evaluate and understand content online," Rao said, during the "Adobe Max" conference here.

Adobe is developing an opt-in system that will allow creators and publishers to securely attach attribution data to content they choose to share.

The framework is designed to let authors verify their content so that they receive proper attribution and provide consumers with an attribution trail to give them greater confidence about the authenticity of the content they're consuming.

Adobe demonstrated a prototype of its content attribution technology embedded in Photoshop.

"Discerning trusted news on the internet is one of the biggest challenges news consumers face today," said Marc Lavallee, head of Research & Development, The New York Times Company.

"This initiative lays the groundwork for doing that through open standards and protocols."

"Serving and enhancing global public conversation is our core mission at Twitter," said Del Harvey, Vice President, Global Trust and Safety, Twitter.

"Everyone has a role to play in information quality and media literacy. Collaboration on issues as complex as this is key," Harvey added.

Tesla pick-up to be revealed on 21 November, Musk says

 Cache   
Tesla pick-up Autocar render Tesla boss says electric pick-up truck – dubbed Cybertruck – will be shown later this month at an event in LA

Tesla will unveil its long-awaited electric pick-up truck, dubbed Cybertruck, later this month, CEO Elon Musk has confirmed.

Musk took to Twitter earlier today to post: “Cybertruck unveil on Nov 21 in LA near SpaceX Rocket factory”. 

He has linked the date to the original Blade Runner film, which lists the same date in the opening credits. The date also coincides with the Los Angeles motor show, which is likely to be intentional. 

Little is known about the pick-up beyond what Musk has alluded to in interviews and on Twitter. He's claimed before that it will be similar in size to the class-leading Ford F-150, cost less than $50,000 (£38,900) and be more capable than any rival. 

Design-wise, everything seen so far has been purely speculative. Last month, Musk tweeted: "[The Cybertruck] doesn't look like anything I've seen bouncing around the internet. It's closer to an armoured personnel carrier from the future."

Pick-ups are still the biggest-selling vehicles in North America, so the move makes financial sense. Ford sold more than 900,000 F-Series trucks in 2018, making it the best-selling vehicle in the US. Ford plans to launch an electric version of the F-150 before 2022.

Tesla's expansion plans beyond the pick-up also include the Model Y crossover, which will be delivered to customers in the coming months, the new Roadster and the electric Semi lorry.

Ford unveils 888bhp electric Mustang at 2019 SEMA show

 Cache   
Mustang Lithium 1 Mustang ‘Lithium’ prototype has an electric motor by Phi-Power and Webasto battery, delivering 1000lb ft of torque through a six-speed manual gearbox

Ford has unveiled a one-off electric Mustang prototype, which can produce 888bhp and features a six-speed manual gearbox, at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

The car, called the ‘Lithium’ and developed in conjunction with Webasto, touches down ahead of Ford’s upcoming ‘Mach E’ fully-electric Mustang-inspired SUV, due to be unwrapped at the Los Angeles motor show later this month.

The Lithium has several upgrades over the standard Stang. To the basic model, Ford has added carbon fiber body parts and 20-inch wheels. It also receives Ford’s Performance Track Handling Pack, adding modified front struts and track lowering springs that lower the car to be approximately one inch closer to the ground, as well as six-piston Brembo front brakes.

The interior retains much the same layout as the standard car, but benefits from a custom 10.4-inch touchscreen infotainment system. The prototype also gains four new drive modes - Valet, Sport, Track and Beast mode - which are staggered in order of performance and selectable via the screen. The wheel and dash, door insides and gearstick come in a custom blue trim.

Under the bonnet, the typical Mustang V8 is replaced with a Phi-Power dual-core electric motor that's paired with an 800-volt Webasto electric battery. The 888bhp and 1000lb ft of torque it can generate is delivered through a six-speed manual gearbox.

Ford has made no endurance claims for the electric Mustang, but it appears that it was designed for speed rather than a long battery range. By contrast, the range is the only official specification which the company has revealed for its upcoming ‘Mach E’, which will be capable of 370 miles per charge.

New BMW M2 CS: official details of 444bhp, £75k run-out special

 Cache   
BMW CS 2020 official press images - hero front Track-focused version of BMW's smallest M car revealed ahead of LA motor show debut, with carbon parts, new aero features and more power

BMW’s M division is sending the current M2 off on a high with the introduction of a new, limited-edition CS model, and now it's official after leaking online yesterday.

The last-hurrah performance coupé, revealed here ahead of its first public debut at the Los Angeles motor show, goes on sale in the UK this week at a price of £75,320. Right-hand drive deliveries are planned to begin next April

Differentiating the track-focused M2 CS from the £51,425 M2 Competition are a number of exterior upgrades, such as a carbonfibre-reinforced plastic bonnet with a central air vent and a carbonfibre roof. The bonnet’s weight is claimed to be half that of the steel structure used for the M2 Competition.

Further changes include a new splitter element at the front, a unique boot spoiler and a multi-channel diffuser – all made from carbonfibre and boosting downforce. Also part of the package are new lightweight 19in forged aluminium wheels in a black or matt gold finish and a choice of four exterior paint colours.

Power for the M2 CS comes from a reworked version of M division’s S55 engine that uses a redesigned dual-branch exhaust system with controllable flaps for acoustics. The twin-turbo 3.0-litre petrol inline six runs the same state of tune as it does in the M4 Competition, developing 444bhp at 6250rpm. That’s a 40bhp increase on the M2 Competition and gives the M2 CS a power-to-weight ratio of 286bhp per tonne. Torque stays at 405lb ft.

The increased reserves are channelled through a standard six-speed manual or optional seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox and an electronically controlled Active M differential. BMW claims a 0-62mph time of 4.2sec for the manual-equipped M2 CS and 4.0sec for the dual-clutch version. By comparison, the 404bhp M2 Competition has an official 0-62mph time of 4.4sec in manual guise.

The M2 CS’s fourth-gear 50-75mph split is put at 3.3sec for the manual car and 3.1sec for the dual-clutch model. With a Driver’s Package, which includes 245/35-profile front and 265/35-profile rear 19in Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres as standard, the top speed is raised to 174mph.

The manual M2 CS’s fuel consumption is 27.7mpg on the WLTP cycle, with CO2 emissions of 233g/km. The dual-clutch car returns 30.1mpg and 214g/km.

Among the chassis tweaks brought to the M2 CS is standard Adaptive M suspension with the choice of three driving modes: Comfort, Sport and Sport+. Also included are upgraded M Sport brakes, with 400mm steel discs and six-piston calipers at the front and 380mm steel discs and four-piston calipers at the rear.

Despite the carbonfibre body panels, it's actually no lighter than the Competition unless you opt for the optional carbon ceramics, saving 22kg. This because it includes adaptive M suspension and M Sport seats as standard.

 

Inside, the M2 CS receives a carbonfibre centre console, plus M Sport seats from the M4 CS. Further equipment upgrades include adaptive LED headlights and a Harman Kardon sound system.

2020 Mini JCW GP: 300bhp hot hatch priced from £34,995

 Cache   
Mini JCW GP at Goodwood 2019 - front Fastest-ever Mini is priced to match its BMW M135i stablemate, but will be built on a much smaller scale

Mini has announced that its upcoming John Cooper Works GP hot hatch will be priced from £34,995, and that it will be revealed at the Los Angeles motor show later this month.

The brand has also revealed that a development prototype has set a Nürburgring lap time of less than eight minutes, suggesting it could be capable of beating the Renault Mégane RS Trophy-R's 7min 40.1sec lap time, set earlier this year. 

A camouflaged JCW GP prototype appeared at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in July, giving British Mini fans a first taste of the 302bhp hot hatch following its disguised public debut at the Nürburgring 24-hour race.

All the news from the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2019

Development cars wrapped in camouflage took to the 'Ring before the start of the famous endurance race to preview the brand's most powerful and fastest production model yet, which is due to go on sale in 2020. 

Mini used the event to confirm the car would see a limited production run, with just 3000 models produced worldwide - some 1000 cars more than either its immediate predecessor or the 2006 Mini Cooper S with John Cooper Works GP kit.

The British firm previously revealed that the hot hatchback will take its power from a four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine, likely to be shared with the new BMW M135i hot hatch. 

The JCW GP will retain the extreme rear wing design, aggressive bodykit and bespoke wheels seen in the 2017 GP Concept. Preview images released by Mini showed a close-up of the rear diffuser, apparently previewing a design that's revised from the original concept, and four-spoke alloy wheels that aren’t as motorsport-inspired as the centre-locking 19in wheels used on the concept.

The four-cylinder turbocharged engine will make the GP the fastest and most powerful road-going Mini ever built by the company. No performance figures have been confirmed. 

The 2017 concept’s large front and rear aprons are unlikely to be carried over in their entirety to the production model, although its LED rear lights that display half of the Union Jack in a nod to the car’s British origin have since become standard on the regular Mini hatchback.

The prominent use of lightweight materials including carbonfibre, which Mini said optimised the car’s power-to-weight ratio, may yet make it into the final car.

Inside, the concept had a roll-cage and pair of low-mounted bucket seats, with gearshifts controlled by paddles on the steering wheel. Mini has yet to reveal if the production version will follow suit.

The BMW-owned British brand said the concept is inspired by its triumphs at the Monte Carlo Rally in the 1960s, “embodying dynamic flair and the ultimate in driving fun”.

BMW board member Peter Schwarzenbauer previously told Autocar that a JCW GP model was likely to appear again. “The John Cooper Works GP is an important part of the Mini brand,” he said. “It has worked well for us in the past.”

Both the original and second-generation modern Minis offered a JCW GP model near the end of the mainstream models’ life cycle, in 2006 and 2012 respectively. The new JCW GP will arrive shortly before the predicted launch of the new Mini hatchback.

The most recent JCW GP, launched in 2012, used a turbocharged 1.6-litre four-cylinder petrol engine delivering 215bhp, a 7bhp increase over the standard JCW at that time. It hit 0-62mph in 6.3sec and cost £28,790.

The current standard JCW adopted a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol unit with 227bhp and also hits 0-62mph in 6.3sec, so you can expect an increase in speed for the third-generation JCW GP.

Joaquin Phoenix Made Fake ‘Joker 2’ Posters for Todd Phillips

 Cache   
Joker is steamrolling its way to over a billion dollars at the worldwide box office, so a sequel is almost a given at this point. After all, sequels have been announced based on far, far less success (Universal’s Dark Universe, anyone?). But according to Joker star Joaquin Phoenix in a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times, he’s not interested in participating in a sequel “just because the first movie is successful.” Indeed, part of what drew him to the role in the first place was the fact that it was a self-contained story that almost certainly …

Curbside Car-Charging and More Comes to West Hollywood

 Cache   

Car-charging may be headed to the curb.

The small city of West Hollywood, Calif., which is located in the Los Angeles metro area, has installed two multi-purpose devices that combine car-charging, Wi-Fi hubs, environmental sensors, streetlights and more into one “Smart Node.”

“The city is piloting these two nodes for a year to evaluate the technology and determine whether it makes sense to introduce them in other parts of the city,” said Francisco Contreras, acting economic development director for West Hollywood. Contreras has also served as the city’s innovation manager.

The nodes can accommodate small-cell wireless technology, making them ideal for the future rollout of emerging 5G tech. The nodes are provided by the company ENE-HUB, which funds and installs the devices, generating revenue from features provided by poles.

“Customers, including cities and other entities, partner with ENE-HUB to enable features and services that allow revenue to be generated from the infrastructure,” Contreras explained. “Customers sign up to subscription services for the features they would like, and can add, change or delete features in the future as technology evolves.”

A signature feature is the ability to connect an electric car to the charger while parked on the street. In many cities, chargers are installed in facilities like parking lots, garages or other off-street zones. The move is in line with policy positions by many cities to increase charging infrastructure.

“I do think we’re seeing an actual pickup in demand,” said Laura Schewel, CEO of StreetLight Data, remarking on the demand for both electric vehicles and their chargers.

Even if EV numbers are not close to the numbers of gas-powered autos, there are enough of them on the highways for motorists to take note, “and feel that they’re there. They’re not an oddity,” said Schewel in a recent interview with Government Technology to discuss a new planning tool developed by StreetLight Data and Siemens to help cities better plan where to deploy charging infrastructure.

Another feature of the Smart Nodes in West Hollywood is their overall appearance, where they read as attractive street furniture.

“The city is well-known for its attractive urban design and welcoming pedestrian experience,” Contreras said of this city of 34,000 residents living in only two square miles. “Because the city places strong value on urban design, we looked for street lights that are both smart in features and innovative in design, to complement the city’s existing streetscape and enhance the quality of life of our community.”

And also, perhaps because of its small size, West Hollywood has been able to test-drive smart city innovation quickly and effectively, making it a leader in this space.

“We are an ideal dense urban environment in which smart city technologies can test their proof-of-concepts,” said Contreras. “With our pilot projects, we also focus on providing our partners with insights into what works with their products and what needs fine-tuning before they release products or services for a larger market.”

Earlier this year, West Hollywood launched new smart bus shelters, complete with features like USB ports for phone charging, along with other perks such as high-resolution screens displaying transit information. Other pilot projects have involved video cameras and other devices to gather data at different locations to gain insights into pedestrian volume or how residents and visitors use public spaces.

“So while we get to benefit from cutting-edge technology, they [partner companies] benefit from getting real world feedback that cannot be replicated in a lab or virtual environment,” said Contreras. “And because we are nimble, we can troubleshoot issues much faster and can assemble cross-departmental teams within days as opposed to weeks or months as in larger organizations.”

A Christmas Story one sheet

A Christmas Story should be remembered as a small film that had a very large impact.” – Caseen Gaines, author of A Christmas Story: Behind the Scenes of a Holiday Classic

The Digital Bits and History, Legacy & Showmanship are pleased to present this retrospective commemorating the 35th anniversary of the release of A Christmas Story, the humorous and now-classic Christmas-themed film based upon the writings of Jean Shepherd and directed by Bob Clark (Black Christmas, Porky’s).

Featuring Melinda Dillon (Close Encounters of the Third Kind), Darren McGavin (Kolchak: The Night Stalker) and Peter Billingsley (The Dirt Bike Kid) as Ralphie, A Christmas Story opened in theaters across North America 35 years ago this month, and for the occasion The Bits features a Q&A with a trio of historians and pop culture authorities who discuss the film’s enduring appeal.

Michael Coate (The Digital Bits): How do you think A Christmas Story should be remembered on its 35th anniversary?

Eugene B. Bergmann: A Christmas Story is a well-deserved, perennial favorite for holiday viewing. It’s a very funny, clever, and, indeed, pointed commentary on the life and ways of kids. It also comments on the way Christmas has been so heavily co-opted by movies and our society as a whole. For these reasons A Christmas Story deserves a permanent place in American culture. It comments on our gift-oriented way of life, and it does its commenting in a subtle/funny way. Not only as Ralphie goes about promoting his BB gun desires, but as narrator, Jean Shepherd, comments while the family opens its Christmas morning gifts – he says their response is “unbridled avarice,” not the most appropriate way to celebrate the birth of Jesus.

The film should be recognized as a major expression of Jean Shepherd’s legacy. Those reading the opening titles will note four of them devoted to Shepherd: the film is based on his works; the incidents depicted come from his book of kid stories, In God We Trust: All Others Pay Cash; Shepherd co-wrote the film’s script; the voice throughout, of Ralphie as a grown-up, is that of Jean Shepherd.

Thomas A. Christie: I think there’s a good reason why A Christmas Story still enjoys such an esteemed reputation thirty-five years after it first appeared in cinemas, and that is the fact that it captures so perfectly the careful balance between wistful nostalgia for a bygone age and the actual realities of family life with all its idiosyncrasies and occasional absurdities. As the narrator perceptively points out, Christmas is the epicenter of any kid’s year, and we see all the trappings of youth being expressed in larger-than-life terms as though they were high drama. Though the movie may be set in the 1940s, it says so much about childhood that is universal that anyone from the early eighties could easily relate to it, and the characters were so genuinely likeable that even now they are fun to spend time with.

Caseen Gaines: A Christmas Story should be remembered as a small film that had a very large impact. The movie really is a series of vignettes of everyday life, but something about that simplicity made it so universal to everyone who saw it. When you think about the movies that really make a big splash today, they’re filled with special effects and major movie stars. The beauty of A Christmas Story is while, yes, writer Jean Shepherd and director Bob Clark had major successes prior to this film, and yes, several of the actors were very well-known at the time it was released, the enduring beauty of the movie lies in its story and accessibility. Who doesn’t know what it feels like to want something and consistently be told “no”?

A Christmas Story newspaper adCoate: Can you describe what it was like seeing A Christmas Story for the first time?

Bergmann: I didn’t see it when it opened in 1983. When I caught up to it soon after Jean Shepherd died in 1999, I failed to sufficiently appreciate it, but as my family and I have watched it every year since, as broadcast by Turner for 24 hours straight starting Christmas Eve, I’ve come to enjoy it a lot. My wife and I laugh at so many of the funny bits even though we’ve seen them so many times and know just when and how they are about to appear again. That’s how well done this film is.

Christie: It seems strange to believe now, given how enduringly popular A Christmas Story has been in the United States, but here in Britain it didn’t make all that much of an impact when it was first released. In the UK, arguably the best-remembered Christmas movie of 1983 was John Landis’s Trading Places – ironically, a feature that isn’t really considered to be a Christmas movie at all by most critics in the US. But though I didn’t see A Christmas Story until the film was around twenty years old or so, it had by then enjoyed such a stellar reputation within American popular culture that so much of its content was already familiar – Flick getting his tongue stuck to an icy flagpole, Ralphie’s titanic battle of wits with Scut Farkus, and of course Mr. Parker’s infamous “leg lamp.” So the film’s rock-solid cult following came as no surprise.

Gaines: I remember seeing A Christmas Story for the first time and thinking it was actually a very old movie, not made in 1983! I grew up loving the original Our Gang (Little Rascals) comedies, and thought there was a very similar energy to the movie. The flag pole scene was, of course, incredibly impressionable. I had heard of that rumor before seeing the movie, but never actually seen someone fall victim to it. As a black kid in suburban New Jersey, one might not think the film would strike such a strong chord, but it really did. I saw so much truth in all of those characters.

Coate: In what way is A Christmas Story a significant motion picture?

Bergmann: Many people respond to the film with nostalgia, but a perceptive viewer will see that it expresses a sensitive and witty view of the world of kids, families and holidays. It also presents Jean Shepherd’s overall philosophy of life – note that every scene (as we laugh at them all) is somehow a disaster: poor Flick with his tongue stuck to the pole; the dogs snatching Christmas turkey; the longed for BB gun nearly shooting Ralphie’s eye out, etc. The film’s director, Bob Clark, noted that A Christmas Story is “…an odd combination of reality and spoof and satire.” Jean Shepherd hated nostalgia. As the dogs go tramping toward the kitchen’s Christmas turkey, past the oblivious father, narrator Shepherd, presenting his ironic philosophy, says, “Ah, life is like that. Sometimes at the height of our revelries, when our joy is at its zenith, when all is most right with the world, the most unthinkable disasters descend upon us.”

As much as I and millions of others can appreciate the nostalgic aspects of the film, one should note that the metal sign that appears sideways and to which Ralphie attaches his BB gun target, is the cause of the ricochet that nearly shoots his eye out – the dastardly sign, proclaiming a long-gone product and era, is emblazoned with the lovely scripted words: GOLDEN AGE. I strongly suspect that – as all we viewers sigh in the warm glow of nostalgia during the ending, that sweet conclusion of mom and dad watching the snow fall and Ralphie in bed embracing his dangerous BB gun – that warm glow was probably mandated by the film studio as the only way to commercially end a story about Christmas.

Gaines: A Christmas Story is a significant motion picture because, somewhat ironically, it shows the power of radio and television. The stories that make up the film largely come from Jean Shepherd’s radio broadcasts and short stories, and it was by listening to the radio that Bob Clark first fell in love with Shep’s characters and childhood experiences. The movie really wasn’t a success when it first hit theaters, but thanks to cable television and the still-ongoing Christmas marathons, the movie found an ever-increasing audience. About as many people who watch the Super Bowl each year tune in, at some point, to the annual marathon. That’s fascinating.

Coate: In what way was Bob Clark an ideal choice to direct A Christmas Story, and where do you think the film ranks among his body of work?

Christie: Bob Clark had already made a huge contribution to Christmas cinema in the form of the wonderfully atmospheric Black Christmas in 1974 – a movie which became a cult classic for entirely different reasons, effectively launching the Christmas horror as a whole new subgenre and paving the way for films like Christmas Evil (1980) and Silent Night, Deadly Night (1984). Naturally A Christmas Story is a world away from the shadowy suspense of Black Christmas, and the sense of sheer warmth, nostalgia and childhood innocence make it about as far removed from Clark’s earlier work as it was possible to imagine. So in that sense, Clark demonstrated considerable range in presenting this diametrically opposed rendering of the festive season in comparison to his earlier work. It seemed appropriate, given his diversity as a filmmaker – lest we forget that this is the same director who brought us Breaking Point (1976), Murder By Decree (1979) and Tribute (1980), to say nothing of the raucous Porky’s (1982). Intriguingly, of course, Clark’s ill-fated attempt to recapture the magic of A Christmas Story in its belated sequel, It Runs in the Family (1994), was an object lesson in the futility of trying to catch lightning in a bottle.

Gaines: Bob Clark was an ideal choice, but you may not realize it based on his previous films at the time of A Christmas Story’s release. He truly understood what made those stories connect with the audience and, most importantly, he had this uncanny ability to draw great performances out of his actors and make moments that we’ve all seen in our everyday lives seem like a revelation on screen. Porky’s is obviously a very popular film of his, but it’s no surprise that when he passed away, most of his obituaries mentioned A Christmas Story first and foremost among his body of work.

A Christmas Story

Coate: Where do you think A Christmas Story ranks among Jean Shepherd’s body of work?

Bergmann: Because the film encapsulates many of Shepherd’s ideas and humor in a form that millions enjoy, it’s valuable. A Christmas Story is the most visible and popular work of Jean Shepherd. His most ardent enthusiasts consider it a very good piece, but not his best claim to fame and the appellation “genius.” That belongs to his decades of improvised monologues and story-telling on radio that influenced aspiring young intellectuals of New York and surrounding territory. Slyly funny on his broadcasts, he taught us to observe, think, and appreciate American culture and the immensely quirky and delightful humanity around us. We listeners are indebted to him for helping to make us more perceptive observers of our world. For example, Jerry Seinfeld, in his “Season 6” DVD sets of his television show, commented, “He really formed my entire comedic sensibility. I learned how to do comedy from Jean Shepherd.”

The Leg LampCoate: Where do you think A Christmas Story ranks among Christmas-themed movies?

Bergmann: I’m not a good judge of how it ranks among Christmas-themed films because I’ve only seen tiny bits of a couple of the many recent ones – I suspect they’re no better than the average, mindless sitcom. I love A Christmas Story and I avoid the rest.

Christie: Certainly within the canon of Christmas movies throughout the 1980s, A Christmas Story can hold its head high. After a long wilderness period throughout the 1960s and 70s, where there was comparatively little in the way of Christmas-themed cinema (with most of the prominent festive features appearing on TV at the time), suddenly the genre burst back into life in the eighties, and by appearing early in the decade A Christmas Story is now closely associated with this renewal in public and critical interest. It may not have enjoyed the huge publicity of Santa Claus: The Movie (1985), displayed the gleeful subversiveness of Gremlins (1984) or the dark humor of Scrooged (1988), but its good-natured take on what it means to be a child during the tortuously long build-up to the festive season – having to impatiently endure school when all you can think of is the allure of opening Christmas presents – has cemented itself into the public consciousness for good reason. Certainly the movie’s regular marathon screenings over Christmas are understandable, given the way in which it has so successfully established itself across generations as a firm favorite with audiences.

Gaines: Christmas movies are so personal to so many people, so everyone will have a different answer to that question, but I clearly think A Christmas Story is one of the most significant Christmas-themed movies of all time. No other film that I know of has an annual 24-hour marathon, and let’s be honest, when you can make a sexy leg lamp and a Pepto-Bismol-colored pink bunny suit symbols of Christmas, you’ve done something right! It’s easy to turn a movie like Elf into a holiday classic; all the elements are there. But A Christmas Story is so beautifully honest and simple, and subversive at times, it’s great to see the legs the movie has had – pun fully intended!

Coate: What is the legacy of A Christmas Story?

Bergmann: The film’s popularity has resulted in a yearly-produced stage play in scores of towns, a musical Broadway production, many theme products, and the “A Christmas Story House” where parts of the film were made and where visitors can tour a recreation of the film house’s interior. There’s a popular book of reprinted A Christmas Story-related tales and a major behind-the-scenes, illustrated coffee-table book. Those are part of the legacy, but there’s also the importance of Shepherd as its creator.

For me the film’s legacy is that it may forever be by far the most prominently known vessel of Jean Shepherd’s world. As fine as it is, Shepherd deserves more recognition in America’s pantheon of creative forces. For those who care to hear his radio voice, one can find hundreds of complete broadcasts on the Internet – free or cheaply for sale on eBay and elsewhere. Acquire them so that at night, when the cares of the world are shoved aside, relax, open your sensibilities, and absorb the unique and always unexpected commentary by ol’ Shep. (One never knows what quirky mix will ensue.) Maybe he’ll tell a story, maybe he’ll comment on the passing scene, maybe he’ll describe his trip to headhunter country of Peru’s Amazon when he helped deliver 500 pounds of Luden’s cough drops to the natives, or maybe he’ll expertly render a little ditty on nose flute, Jew’s harp, or kazoo. Or maybe he’ll knock out a tune by thumping his knuckles on his head.

Long live Jean Shepherd and his A Christmas Story.

Christie: Fittingly enough, for a movie that is so closely associated with nostalgia, A Christmas Story has benefited from audience fondness of its backwards-looking recollections of the golden age of Christmas cinema in the 1940s and 50s as well as now being affectionately remembered by any children of the eighties who grew up with the film at the time. Thus its evocation of what it means to be a child in the approach to Christmas has never lost its relevance, just as its refusal to present too rose-tinted a view of family life (we see many of the disappointments as well as the joys of youth) feels commendably fresh given the occasionally saccharine tendency that the genre has to idealize hearth and home. As the narrator Ralphie himself wistfully admits, there would never be another Christmas quite like the one we see in A Christmas Story, and I’m sure that statement is true for many of the movie’s fans as well.

Gaines: A Christmas Story is proof that low-budget, small-scale movies can stand the test of time. It is such a testament to Jean Shepherd’s ability to recapture his youth into words, and Bob Clark’s ability to communicate that on screen, all through great performances. No one who worked on that film thought we would be talking about it 35 years later, but now everyone involved knows that 35 years from now, it will still be entertaining new generations of fans. That’s a legacy to be proud of.

Coate: Thank you – Eugene, Thomas, and Caseen – for sharing your thoughts about A Christmas Story on the occasion of its 35th anniversary.

Where Kylie Jenner and Drake Really Stand Amid Romance Rumors

 Cache   

New couple alert? Not so fast...

Kylie Jenner and Drake have been sparking romance rumors lately after a series of hangouts, but not everything is always what it seems. While the beauty mogul was spotted attending the Grammy winner's birthday and Halloween parties in recent weeks, a source close to Drake tells E! News that the celebs are not romantically involved.

"Kylie and Drake are not romantic. They have always been good friends and have been hanging out more that Kylie is single and Drake is in town at his house in Calabasas," a second source tells E! News. "It's a convenient friendship buts it's strictly platonic."

"Drake is notorious for flirting with all of his girlfriends and him and Kylie have a great dynamic," the insider continues, adding that Drake, 33, and Kylie, 22, are "into the same things" and Drake will "come over and chill" with Kylie and daughter Stormi Webster "from time to time."

The source adds, "They aren't hooking up but Kylie is enjoying having him around."

Travis Scott's New Song May Hint at Kylie Jenner Romance Troubles

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star and the "God's Plan" artist are actually neighbors, living in the same area north of Los Angeles.

"They are definitely spending time together and seeing each other more frequently," a source close to Kylie tells E! News. "She's very comfortable with him because she's known him for so long. It may turn into something more than friends. She's exploring things and is happy to be seeing him. But she considers herself to be single."

It was just over a month ago that Kylie's split from beau Travis Scott was revealed to the world. E! News learned in early October that the couple, who share daughter Stormi, decided to press pause on their relationship after two years together.

So, what does Travis think about the relationship speculation involving Kylie and Drake?

"Travis is aware that Drake has been around Kylie more recently and isn't fazed," a source close to the Astroworld artist tells E! News. "Drake and Travis are good friends and Travis knows that Drake wouldn't cross the line."

"Travis thinks that him and Kylie will get back together eventually and isn't worried about it," the insider continues. "Him and Kylie still spend a lot of time together and are regularly talking so he is not intimidated by Drake at all. Travis is busy working on his new music and has been traveling recently, but is always excited when he gets to spend time with Stormi and Kylie."

The source adds that Travis, Kylie and Stormi "will be together for all of the upcoming holidays."

According to the insider, "Kylie does not feel it would be fair to exclude Travis from the family activities and wants him around Stormi to share those special moments."

Historic preservation in DC prioritizes loud neighbors, not fine buildings

 Cache   

DC has many more historically protected buildings than cities several times our size. This surfeit of historic structures results from several factors, notably the broad application of rather vague criteria for designation. As Roger Lewis has written, “the HPRB decision is inevitably a judgment call because much of the evidence for historic designation is inherently subjective.”

Once acquired, historic designation requires even simple renovation plans to clear numerous additional hurdles, incurring additional reviews, hearings, and redesigns that can cost many thousands of dollars, and possibly resulting in outright denial. The delays, uncertainty, and subjective judgments intrinsic to this process makes it the perfect legal cover for busybodies attempting to keep the status quo permanently so.

The biggest weapon in the arsenal

These squeaky wheels turn to historic preservation because it’s the most powerful regulatory tool in a municipality's land-use arsenal. Zoning is strictly limited to regulating broad aspects of a building like its size, shape, and use. As the Supreme Court described in Nectow vs. Cambridge, “zoning… cannot be imposed if it does not bear a substantial relation to the public health, safety, morals, or general welfare.” No one can reasonably say that public morals are jeopardized when the neighbors paint their window shutters hot pink.

That often leaves preservation laws as the only legal remedy a city has to shape a building's appearance. Preservation is only meant to apply in limited circumstances, to buildings of “a special character or special historical or aesthetic interest or value” (as the Penn Central case, which established the constitutional validity of local preservation designations, says). Once it’s in force, preservation concerns get the final say over just about everything else that might be on a community’s wish list, whether it’s sustainability, affordability, or occupant comfort.

A rush to judgment

Since every resident “squeaky wheel” is invited to request historic designation for just about any site in the District, many do — and overwhelmingly, they succeed. A map of DC's historic designations (many of which are historic districts) shows how they're concentrated in DC's most economically privileged areas. While few buildings in Wards 3, 4, 5, 7, and 8 predate the 20th century, Ward 3 has considerably more historically designated structures than its counterparts.

Historic designation applications closely follow development pressures, as Joe Cortright points out: “if other neighborhoods in the city are designated as ‘historic’ and yours isn’t, then you’re more likely to bear the brunt of development pressures. What makes sense from the standpoint of an individual neighborhood quickly leads to a situation that’s bad for a city.”

This rush by loud neighbors to stave off development through historic protections have resulted in numerous unremarkable buildings finding their way onto DC’s historic inventory. One infamous case involves a strip mall parking lot in Spring Valley — not the only local historic strip-mall parking lot, even though that very idea is considered laughable elsewhere. Its structures were deemed worthy of preservation because, as the nomination form points out, they “are unique in the District of Columbia. Developed by one firm and designed or inspired by one architectural vision, the buildings comprise a cluster that reflects national trends in architecture, merchandising, planning, and retail expansion.” In short, it deserves preservation because it's a strip mall, and strip malls are rare within the boundaries of DC — never mind that they're hardly endangered in Maryland, just three blocks away.

Buildings with blue backgrounds have been designated as historic. Buildings in red were designed by I.M. Pei's firm. The one circled in yellow is a condominium. Base map generated from AtlasPlus. Image by the author.

Across town, I.M. Pei's architecture firm designed seven Brutalist high-rises for developer William Zeckendorf in Southwest Washington: three at L'Enfant Plaza and four at Waterside Mall. Two of them are on the National Register — not the best, not the largest, not the least-altered, not the one Pei most directly shaped, not the one most indicative of his style. Instead, the “historic” ones include one building that happened to be gut-rehabbed and converted to condos, and its condo board was upset by a proposal to build on an adjacent parking lot.

Still not special enough? A district often has lower standards

The arbitrary nature of historic designations was made abundantly clear by DC’s historic preservation staff in a rare 2015 recommendation to deny a historic landmark application for a house in Petworth. In it, they said that the house itself wasn’t that special. Yet, if pulled together with its equally unremarkable neighbors, they cumulatively would clear the bar for architectural significance: “[T]he Board has denied applications to designate [eight addresses] on the grounds that, as architecture, they were not important enough examples or of special distinction in their neighborhoods. An architectural landmark must be a particularly noteworthy example and must be significant to the District of Columbia… The house at 16 Grant Circle does not alone stand out in this way… while not eligible for listing as an Historic Landmark, the house at 16 Grant Circle would undeniably contribute to a Grant Circle Historic District.” Sure enough, just months later the HPRB created the Grant Circle Historic District, evidently at the behest of some residents who wanted to stop construction of legal pop-ups.

Anywhere a penny-pinching developer stamps out identikit designs, the resulting buildings will all look unremarkable, all together — but as long as that togetherness was a while ago, it's apparently sufficient to warrant historic protection. Never mind that the individual buildings might be middling, that their architectural unity is compromised by “non-contributing” buildings in the middle, or that there might be better examples somewhere else.

Other cities take a proactive approach to preservation planning

Many other places, including Arlington, Chicago, and Los Angeles, have proactively done comprehensive “historic resources surveys,” a process that a National Park Service handbook calls the “basis for preservation planning.” The National Historic Preservation Act even lists the first responsibility of a State Historic Preservation Officer, a role that the Office of Planning plays in DC, as “direct and conduct a comprehensive statewide survey of historic property and maintain inventories of the property.”

In these surveys, planners go out into the field to visit and inventory every single building, and evaluate whether it could potentially meet the predetermined criteria for historic designation because of its age, architectural merit, or context. A comprehensive survey is the first step in a proactive approach to preservation that identifies and saves those buildings of greatest historic value — whether the oldest structures, the most noteworthy and influential designs, the best-kept examples of various types and styles, or places that shaped important individuals, events, or movements.

A survey could identify the best examples of particular building types, like those from a certain era, style, architect, or use, and make preservation of the most notable structures a high priority. By doing so, it would guarantee that the stories that those types tell are being preserved, rather than rescuing everything for all time.

The Jost-Kuhn House on Madison St. NW was built as a farmstead before the Civil War, and is decades older than many houses now being considered for historic designation. It did not become a landmark until after an OP survey of farmhouses. Image by Google Street View.

However, OP doesn't seem very interested in a comprehensive survey. It has completed many smaller surveys covering neighborhoods and themes, but even its current preservation plan still sees completing a comprehensive citywide survey as a distant goal for some far-off future year. Instead, it advances still more smaller thematic surveys, e.g., of Georgetown alleys, downtown Modernism, and old farmhouses. The most recent attempt at a District-wide inventory was done by the Joint Committee on Landmarks in the 1960s.

Relying instead on a reactive approach to preservation does an injustice to legitimately interesting buildings whose histories have yet to be uncovered, while also bloating the historic inventory with many other buildings of middling merit. A survey-based approach could not only save more hidden treasures — it probably would have resulted in fewer but higher-quality designations. Chicago's historic resources survey found only 17,371 properties citywide that were even potentially eligible for designation as historic, or just two percent of its structures.

Are we collecting, or hoarding?

Randy Frost, a psychologist who studies hoarding, makes this distinction: “When a collector expands acquisitions beyond well-defined collections… it becomes a hoarding problem.”

Institutions that take their collections seriously have well-defined rules for what enters their collections, because of what philosopher G. K. Chesterton called “the eternal revolution”: “If you leave a white post alone it will soon be a black post. If you particularly want it to be white you must be always painting it again; that is, you must be always having a revolution.”

The Corcoran had a magnificent collection of art, but not all of it was deemed appropriate for the NGA's collection. Image licensed under Creative Commons.

The National Gallery of Art was recently offered the contents of the Corcoran museum, but only took half the pieces. As Peggy Loar, the Corcoran's interim president, told the Post: “If they [NGA] take it in, they have it forever — so they have a big fiduciary responsibility to the United States taxpayer.”

Historic building designation also creates a big fiduciary responsibility: it burdens all future generations of residents with the job of maintaining a building forever, even after its original use and structure have become obsolete.

Preservation costs nothing today, but a lot tomorrow

Maintaining past generations' memories also carries another price: by making urban land more scarce and more expensive, it can hurt future generations' ability to build their own places and create their own memories.

The Obama White House's “Housing Development Toolkit” specifically called out “arbitrary or antiquated preservation regulations” among local policies that discourage new housing development — an “accumulation of even well-intentioned land-use policies [that] can restrict housing availability; create uncertainty for developers and limit private investment; exacerbate the imbalance between jobs and housing; and induce urban sprawl.” (At the time, DC’s planning director dismissed the report, saying they’ve implemented most of its suggestions.)

In New York, preservation and development groups recently issued conflicting reports about whether historic preservation stifles economic growth and housing affordability. The debate has led to some changes in how long landmark designation can take.

If DC wants historic preservation to remain a useful tool for broader planning, rather than one that takes over the entire planning system, it should become more discerning about what it adds to its collection of historic buildings.

Beware the starchitects, beware repetition

 Cache

DC resident Jeff Speck wrote Suburban Nation, the best-selling book about city planning since Jane Jacobs. Greater Greater Washington is pleased to present 3 weekly excerpts from his new book, Walkable City: How Downtown Can Save America, One Step at a Time.

We’ve come a long way since the seventies, when every city endeavored to build its own version of Boston’s fortress-like City Hall, a structure that only architects love (yes, I love it). This style of architecture was called brutalism, supposedly after Le Corbusier’s beton brut—rough concrete—but the name stuck for other reasons.

It was characterized by walls so abrasive they could rip your arm open. Happily, this technique is no longer in vogue, but many architects, especially the starchitects, still build blank walls where they least belong.

My old professor, the Spaniard Rafael Moneo, is probably the leading blank wall composer, a veritable Copland of Concrete. In his studios, like all of my architecture-school studios, nobody ever talked about how buildings need to give life to the sidewalk.

We did discuss such things as a façade’s thickness and depth—“sickness and death,” in Moneo’s formidable accent—but these were architectonic qualities, not practical ones. Most architecture schools still promote an intellectual and artistic sensibility that has little patience for such mundane questions as whether a building will sustain pedestrian activity.

This issue was the subject of a now famous exchange that took place at the 2009 Aspen Ideas Festival between Frank Gehry and a prominent audience member, Fred Kent. Kent, who runs the Project for Public Spaces, pointedly asked Gehry why so many “iconic” buildings by star architects fail to give life to the streets and sidewalks around them. Gehry, who was once quoted as saying “I don’t do context,” claimed to be above this criticism, but Kent didn’t buy it. I wasn’t there, so we’ll let The Atlantic’s James Fallows tell the rest:

But the questioner asked one more time, and Gehry did something I found simply incredible and unforgettable. “You are a pompous man,” he said—and waved his hand in a dismissive gesture, much as Louis XIV might have used to wave away some offending underling. He was unmistakably shooing or waving the questioner away from the microphone, as an inferior—again, in a gesture hardly ever seen in post-feudal times.

Gehry was clearly having a bad day, but his imperiousness is worth recounting as a metaphor for some of his work—not all, but some. Kent was no doubt recalling his son Ethan’s visit to Gehry’s masterpiece, the Guggenheim Bilbao, an experience he describes in the Project for Public Spaces website’s “Hall of Shame.” After failing to find the front door and taking note of the treeless, depopulated plaza, Ethan observed a mugging, something he later learned was common there. He adds, “In the span of 10 minutes that we spent around the museum, I witnessed the first mugging of my life—and I’ve lived my entire life in New York City.”

Robberies are no longer very common in New York, but the same goes for Bilbao—except for certain problem places. That one of these places enfronts the Guggenheim is partly Gehry’s fault, the outcome of a landscape (more of a landscrape) conceived as a tabula rasa to show off the building to its best effect. Gehry is actually perfectly capable of contributing to attractive, engaging landscapes—as he has done in Chicago’s Millennium Park—but he rarely does so with his buildings, most of which do not reward proximity. His Disney Hall, in Los Angeles, has about 1500 feet of perimeter, perhaps 1000 feet of which is blank wall of the most slippery sort.

But it’s a concert hall, you say… it needs to have blank walls. Well, take a stroll around the Paris Opera, or even Boston’s Symphony Hall, and let’s talk again. These older buildings’ facades are awash in engaging detail, so that even their blank walls don’t feel blank. Walking next to them is a pleasure.

This discussion reminds me of a wonderful set of drawings by Leon Krier, in which he shows two buildings side by side from three different distances. From far away, we can see that one is a classical palace, the other a modernist glass cube. The palace has its base, middle, and top, while the glass cube is articulated with the horizontal and vertical lines of its large, reflective windows.

As we get closer, the palace reveals its doors, windows, and cornice, while the glass cube remains the same as before: horizontal and vertical lines. Zooming in to just a few paces away, we now observe the palace’s decorative string course, window frames, and the rafter-tails supporting the eaves. Our view of the glass cube is unchanged and mute. We have walked a great distance to its front door but received no reward.

Krier presents these drawings as a powerful argument against modernism. But this is not merely a question of style. Any architectural style—except minimalism, I suppose—is capable of providing those medium- and small-scale details that engage people as they approach and walk by.

The high-tech Pompidou Center, by celebrating its mechanical systems on its exterior, gives life to one of the most successful public spaces in Paris. What matters is not whether the details were crafted by a stone carver or a cold extruder, but whether they exist at all. Too many contemporary architects fail to understand this point, or understand it but don’t care.

But a preponderance of human-scaled detail is still not enough if a streetscape lacks variety. However delicate and lovely a building façade, there is little to entice a walker past 500 feet of it. As Jane Jacobs noted, “Almost nobody travels willingly from sameness to sameness and repetition to repetition, even if the physical effort required is trivial.”

Getting the scale of the detail right is only half the battle; what matters even more is getting the scale of the buildings right, so that each block contains as many different buildings as reasonably possible. Only in this way will the pedestrian be rewarded with the continuously unfolding panorama that comes from many hands at work.

This fact seems to be lost on the vast majority of architects, especially the big names, whose unspoken goal is to claim as much territory as possible for their trademarked signature, even if it means a numbingly repetitive streetscape. It is rarely taught in architecture schools, where there persists a deep misunderstanding of the difference between city planning and architecture, such that most urban design projects are seen as an opportunity to create a single humongous building. Design superstars like Rem Koolhaas, in their giddy celebration of “bigness,” have adopted this confusion as doctrine.

To be fair, egotism and the desire for celebrity are only partly responsible for this orientation. It also comes from an insistence on intellectual honesty. Just as a building supposedly bears the obligation to be “of its time,” it must also be “of its author.” For the designer of a large structure to pretend to be many different designers is to falsify the historical record, especially since the modern myth of the genius architect insists that every designer’s personal style is as unique as his fingerprint.

I still remember (how could I not) the critic at my architectural-school thesis final review who said, “I don’t understand: your two buildings seem to have been designed by two different architects.” My fantasy-world response, twenty years after the fact: “Why, thank you, sir.”

Speck’s book came out on November 13. You can order it on Amazon. For more from the book, see also our first and second excerpts. Speck will also be appearing at Politics & Prose this Saturday.

News Roundup

 

Zuckerberg, Facebook under mounting pressure over political ads

 

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is set to meet with civil rights leaders this week after his company has maintained its policy to leave up political ads containing false statements by politicians. The company has applied the policy unevenly, first allowing Donald Trump to maliciously post an ad with false information about Joe Biden; then leaving up an Elizabeth Warren ad containing false information designed to illustrate the absurdity of Facebook’s ad policy.  During a hearing, Zuckerberg also admitted to Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that if she were to place a false political ad, that the company would probably leave it up. 

 

But Facebook is inexplicably removing false ads placed by Political  Action Committees. One notable example is an ad placed the Really Online Lefty League – ROLL – a Political Action Committee co-founded by Adriel Hampton – which falsely claimed that Lindsey Graham supports the New Green Deal. Hampton, an experienced marketing and political strategist, responded by filing to run for governor of California. Then gubernatorial candidate Hampton posted a false political ad and Facebook took it down, saying his campaign wasn’t legit—that it was just a ploy to place a false ad to see what Facebook would do. Even though Hampton says he fully expects to win the governorship, Facebook hasn’t reinstated the ad.

 

It’s a mess.

 

Top officials from the NAACP, National Urban League, and the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights are scheduled to meet with Zuckerberg this week to express their concerns with Facebook’s political ad policy, which the company now says has been extended to the UK.

 

Facebook sued for age, gender bias in financial services ads

 

A plaintiff in San Francisco filed a potential class action federal lawsuit last week claiming that Facebook discriminates against users based on age and gender in determining who can see financial services ads.  The lawsuit comes 7-months after Facebook agreed to tailor its platform to avoid discrimination on the basis of age, gender and zip code for job, credit, and housing ads.

 

US launches Tik Tok investigation

 

The Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS) has launched a national security investigation into Tik Tok, which is owned by the Chinese firm Bytedance. A bipartisan cohort of lawmakers including Democrat Chuck Schumer, Republican Marco Rubio, and Tennessee Democratic Congressman Bart Gordon have all expressed concern about how the Chinese government uses TikTok’s data. TikTok’s growth has been outpacing the growth of incumbent social media companies in the U.S.

 

 

Snowden: Facebook as untrustworthy as the NSA

 

Whistleblower Edward Snowden, who is exiled in Russia for blowing the lid off the National Security Agency’s mass data collection practices six years ago, told ReCode’s Kara Swisher last week that Facebook is as untrustworthy as the NSA when it comes to privacy. But he didn’t limit his remarks to Facebook. He said that all tech companies are looking to exploit our personal data no matter the consequences. He also said that, on the surface, users may appear not to be concerned about how big tech companies handle their data but that, in reality, users are very concerned but feel powerless.

 

Five people shot and killed at Airbnb rental

 

Five people were shot and killed at an Airbnb rental Northern California during a Halloween party on Thursday. The rental listing on Airbnb prohibited parties and the renter claimed it was renting the space for family members who were suffering from smoke inhalation from the fires in the Los Angeles area. A witness reported to Buzzfeed that the shooting occurred with apparently no provocation. Airbnb has banned the renter from the platform.

 

China launches 5G network

 

Chinese officials announced last week that it would roll out 5G to Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, and Hangzhou 2 months ahead of schedule. The country also announced plans to roll out 5G to over 50 cities by the end of this year. While U.S. telecom companies have begun their 5G roll-out, it’s largely been rolled out on higher frequency bands than the 5G service that’s being rolled out in China. The lower frequency bands that China’s using cover a larger surface area, while the higher frequency bands U.S. companies are using are more powerful but cover less ground.

Hill blames her husband, whom she is in the process of divorcing, for posting the photos.

Scaling-up Child and Youth Mental Health Services: Assessing Coverage of a County-wide Initiative

 Cache   

Over 7 million children and youth have a diagnosable mental illness any given year. There are evidence-based treatments (EBTs) to effectively treat these conditions, but these EBTs reach a very small percentage of their target population with treatment rates between 1-3%.1 We know very little about what influences these coverage rates. Beginning in 2009, the Los Angeles County Mental Health Department (LACDMH) began an ambitious agenda to scale-up the provision of EBTs in child/youth mental health care. The present study seeks to contribute to the scale-up literature by examining three questions based on LACDMH’s initiative: 1) To what extent have the county’s selected EBTs reached their target population?; 2) Are there differences in coverage rates within the county?; and 3) What factors are associated with the coverage rates? To answer these questions, the author used small area variation analysis and geospatial methods to create coverage scores at the county, service planning area, and clinic service area levels. The author aggregated community and clinic characteristics to the clinic service area level (n=254) to assess factors related to coverage. The author used LACDMH administrative claims data for FY 2013-2014 with population data from the American Community Survey 2014 5-yr estimates (ACS). The county reached 17% of its target population during FY 2013-2014. Coverage varied throughout the county. OLS regression results indicated that the proportion of ethnic minorities, immigrants and adults with a college degree were negatively associated with clinic service area coverage scores.

Reflections on the Work of Reuben Wu

photo-eye Gallery Reflections on the Work of Reuben Wu Jamey Stillings
Photographers view the work of other artists using photographic processes through a unique and illuminating lens. This week, using his keen visual literacy and skilled eye, photo-eye Gallery Artist Jamey Stillings reflects on the work of Reuben Wu, currently on view at photo-eye Gallery.
 by Jamey Stillings 

Reuben Wu, AE 1144, 15 x 20 inches, Archival pigment print, edition of 10, $950

If you have yet to spend time with the photographs of Reuben Wu, please do so soon.

Photographers are both blessed and cursed when we encounter the work of fellow artists. By one measure, our visual acuity is refined and deep, having assimilated a vast aesthetic and historical lexicon of photographs throughout our lives – imagery that contextualizes new work we experience. But by another measure, this visual literacy interferes with our ability to observe new work on its terms with focus, curiosity, and naiveté. Instead of simple observation, we can easily be distracted by the technical.

Fortunately, Reuben Wu’s work manifests a visual sensitivity and finesse, which fuses with a refined aesthetic sensibility and technical mastery of his tools. Thus, we are freed to quietly be in the presence of each photograph appreciating it on its terms.


Wu’s work AE 1144, from the series, Aeroglyphs, places us in a different space than many of his other images. Instead of geometric light forms interacting with pristine, seemingly untouched natural landscapes, we encounter a scene that bears the unmistakable marks of human activity. The eerily glowing turquoise waters of the irregular canal, or ditch, are at once seductive and troubling. If we were to enter these waters, would they provide comfort and relaxation, or toxicity? Details along the water’s edge reveal information that, in theory, should help us discern scale, but these forms dissolve into a blackness where our ability to know what is geological or human-formed is masked. The twilight sky, with its panoply of colors and quiet drama, is inviting. Are we looking only at desert clouds or also the dissipating contrails of evening flights? While contemporary in the print’s vibrancy and hues, the surreal tones of water and sky, out-of-balance with how they would be seen in situ, evoke the mystery of Magritte.


Installation view of AE1144 and XT1768 in Aeroglyphs & Other Nocturnes at photo-eye Gallery 


Upon this scene, perhaps fully pre-visualized by the artist, but never experienced as a single moment, Wu scribes three central vertical parallel lines with the light of his drone. As with all light painting, these lines never exist in space to be seen by the naked eye. Instead, the open sensor, which replaces the sheet of film, collects the sum of his temporal activity. Thus, the landscape becomes a set or stage in which a performance occurs, but the results of this ephemeral series of events become apparent only in the finished image. While traditional land art leaves permanent or semi-permanent marks in the landscape, Wu’s art cannot be experienced except in the photograph.

Reuben Wu’s photographic vision – quiet, serene, contemplative, meditative, and formal – adds a valuable perspective to our collective photographic lexicon. Make the time to savor it.

Simson: Eesti on mitmete transpordilahenduste innovaator, kuid koostöös maailma suurte majandustega saame veelgi paremad olla

 Cache   
Majandus- ja taristuminister Kadri Simson esines sel nädalal Los Angeleses toimunud kõrgetasemelisel konverentsil "LA CoMotion: The Global Laboratory of Future Mobility", kus ta tutvustas Eesti unikaalset ühistranspordisüsteemi ning innovatiivseid transpordilahendusi. Minister tõi oma ettekannete peamiste teemadena välja transpordi digitaliseerimise ja innovaatilised lahendused nagu näiteks pakiroboti, piletisüsteemi ja sõidujagamise teenuse arendused Eestis. „Eesti on mitmes transpordisfääri küsimuses maailmale teerajaja ja ma ei pea siinkohal silmas ainult tasuta ühistransporti. Los Angeleses toimunud konverentsil pakkus osalejatele suurt huvi meie töö sõidujagamise platvormide seadustamise osas ning mul oli rõõm tutvustada maailmale ka näiteks meie pakirobotite lahendusi. Transport on üha jõulisemalt liikumas autonoomsete liikumisvahendite suunas ja see on suur väljakutse nii Eestile kui ka kogu maailmale. Külastasin ka Los Angeleses asuvat üht maailma suuremat inkubatsioonikeskust, kus tuli jutuks, et ka Eesti ettevõtjad võiksid sealses tegevuses kaasa lüüa. Los Angelese piirkond moodustab ühe maailma suurima majanduspiirkonna ja sealsed võimalused on suured ka Eesti jaoks,“ rääkis majandus- ja taristuminister Kadri Simson. Majandusministri sõnul on Eesti ühistransport arenemas, kuid valdkonna kiire innovatsioon sunnib riike pidevalt uusi ja paremaid lahendusi otsima. Ministri hinnangul oleme samal ajal ka mitme transpordiprojekti eestvedajad, mida maailmas huviga jälgitakse. „Mõistagi pälvis Los Angeleses palju tähelepanu meie töö tasuta ühistranspordiga. Uuriti nii Tallinna näite kui ka esimesest juulist käivitunud maakondliku ühistranspordi kohta. Meie kasvunumbrid ja ka plaanid tasuta sõidu kõrvalt veel ka liine tihendada ning graafikuid parandada, tulid korduvalt teemana üles ja on rõõm näha, et maailm märkab meie tegevusi. Lisaks tutvustasin nõudepõhise ühistranspordi arenguid, et sõita oleks võimalik ka inimestel, kes elavad tõesti hõredalt asustatud paikades. Rõhutasin ka esinedes, et ühistranspordisüsteemi arendamine on pidev töö ja ühendusi saab muuta veelgi paremaks. See on meie eesmärk,“ lõpetas Simson.

Kadri Simson: Tallinn-Helsingi tunnel pakub huvi kogu maailmale

 Cache   
Majandus- ja taristuminister Kadri Simson viibib sel nädalal visiidil Los Angeleses ning osaleb kõrgetasemelisel konverentsil "LA CoMotion: The Global Laboratory of Future Mobility", kus minister tutvustab Eesti ühistranspordisüsteemi ning innovatiivseid transpordilahendusi. Lisaks Eesti lahenduste tutvustamisele on ministril Los Angeleses mitmeid kohtumisi. Kohtumisel Virgin Hyperloop-One'i kaasasutaja ja CTO Josh Giegeli ning nende uue CEO Jay Walderiga arutati Hyperloopi projekti hetkeseisu ning võimalust kasutada antud lahendust ka võimaliku Tallinn-Helsingi tunneli juures. „Tallinna ja Helsingi vaheline tunnel ei paku huvi ainult Euroopas. Tegemist oleks maailma pikima veealuse tunneliga ning pakub huvi üle kogu maailma. Hyperloopi projekt on järjest arenemas ning seda tuleb kindlasti kaaluda ka Tallinn-Helsingi vahelise tunneliprojektiga edasi liikudes. Kohtumisel Hyperloop-One’i juhtidega selgus, et just meie visiit oli uue CEO Jay Walderi esimeseks ametlikuks kohtumiseks. Eesti on uutest transpordilahendustest huvitatud ja hyperloop on kindlasti üks neist projektidest, millel silma peal hoida,“ rääkis Simson. Majandusminister kohtus ka World Trade Center Los Angelesi presidendi Stephen Cheungiga, kellega arutati, kuidas arendada Los Angelese ja Eesti ettevõtjate vahelist koostööd. „Los Angeles on peamiselt tuntud maailma filmitööstuse südamena, kuid tegemist on ka ühe suurima majandusega piirkonnaga kogu maailmas. Siin on Ameerika suurim sadam ja meeletu arengupotentsiaal ja innovatsioon erinevates majandusharudes. Kohtumisel World Trade Centeri juhiga arutasimegi, kuidas Eesti ettevõtjatele siinsel turul veelgi rohkem uksi avada. Hea näide Eesti ettevõttest, kes on siinsel turul jala maha saanud ja on tegemas tõelist läbilööki, on Digital Sputnik, kes pakub nii riist- kui ka tarkvaraplatvormi filminduses kasutatavatele LED valgustitele ning ettevõte mängib võtmerolli praegu Hollywoodis juurutatavates VR/AR süsteemides. Digital Sputniku loetelu filmidest, kus on kasutatud just nende lahendusi, on juba täna väga muljetavaldav,“ mainis ka Digital Sputniku juhtidega kohtunud majandusminister Kadri Simson. Lisaks ettevõtjatega kohtumisele väisas minister ka Eesti kogukonda ning külastas Soome peakonsulit Los Angeleses. Simsoni sõnul on Eesti valitsus otsustanud rajada Ameerika läänerannikule konsulaadi, kuid selle asukoht on veel otsustamisel. „Los Angeleses on 66 konsulaati ja suur hulk aukonsuleid. Soome peakonsul tervitas Eesti otsust rajada läänerannikule Eesti konsulaat ja julgustas meid valima just Los Angelest, mis on kahtlemata üks võimalus. Siin on ka väga aktiivne Eesti kogukond,“ lõpetas Simson.

President Trump nominates Stephen Hahn as new FDA commissioner

 Cache   
President Donald Trump is expected to nominate Dr. Stephen Hahn to be the next head of the US Food and Drug Administration.

The acting commissioner of the FDA, Dr. Ned Sharpless, will return to his role as the director of the National Cancer Institute, according to a press release from the US Department of Health and Human Services.

By law, Sharpless was only allowed to serve a total of 210 days under the Federal Vacancies Reform Act. His tenure ended Friday at 5 p.m. ET.

Hahn is a well-known radiation oncology expert and is the current chief medical executive of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, where has been a professor of radiation oncology since January 2015.

Asked to describe himself when he was appointed to the leadership position at MD Anderson, Hahn used one word: "Energetic."

The 59-year-old will need that energy to run an agency that employs more than 17,000 people and has a $5.7 billion budget.

The agency protects public health by regulating much more than the food and drugs mentioned in the department's name. The FDA regulates medical devices, tobacco, alcohol, veterinary products, vaccines, blood, microwave ovens, nail polish and much more.

Helping run the daily operations of MD Anderson, Hahn currently manages a $5.2 billion operating budget, 20,300 employees, 7,000 trainees and more than 3,000 volunteers, according to the hospital.

MD Anderson is one of the world's largest cancer centers. It is ranked No. 1 in the United States for cancer care, according to the U.S. News & World Report "Best Hospitals" survey.

It cares for more than 141,000 patients in 2018. It is known as a leading cancer research center, earning the most number of grants from the National Cancer Institute, according to the center. Its staff even includes a 2018 Nobel Prize winner.

At MD Anderson, Hahn had a good reputation for turning its budget around. The center faced serious financial losses in 2016, according to the Houston Chronicle. The paper said when Hahn noticed the problem, he "laid out a slide presentation to top officials that showed the elite Houston hospital was on track to lose up to $450 million in the new fiscal year without swift and decisive action."

"We were in a financial crisis, if you will, and that we had to move in a certain direction," Hahn told the Cancer Letter in 2017 in an extensive interview about that time in his work. He oversaw the largest layoffs in the cancer center history, but the center moved back into solid financial territory.

Money challenges weren't the only test of Hahn's leadership. This year, when MD Anderson received notification from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services that it could become ineligible for reimbursements after investigations found violations with its labs, Hahn publicly promised to fix the problems and took responsibility. MD Anderson explained that corrective action is ongoing, according to a letter MD Anderson sent CMS.

Hahn was first brought to MD Anderson in 2015 to run its radiation oncology division and was appointed chief medical executive in June 2018.

Before his work in Texas, Hahn was chairman of radiation oncology at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine from 2005 to 2014. As vice chairman for research, he led the expansion of the department's research base, which regularly ranked first or second for NIH funding, according to the school.

In 2009, Hahn testified on Capitol Hill, taking responsibility for a doctor who worked for him who had botched the prostate cancer care of dozens of military veterans, according to Hahn's testimony. He asked the doctor to resign and created a new system to prevent future mistakes.

As a clinician, Hahn specialized in treating lung and genitourinary cancers. He is listed as an author on more than 200 peer-reviewed journal articles and other publications that focus on topics including proton therapy, radiotherapy and cost-effective treatments.

In the early 1990s, Hahn worked in Santa Rosa, California, as a medical and radiation oncologist, and took a leadership role early in his career as chief resident of internal medicine at the University of California, San Francisco. He worked from 1993-1995 in Bethesda, Maryland, as chief of the National Cancer Institute's prostate cancer clinic.

Hahn graduated with a bachelor's degree in biology from Rice University in 1980. He went to medical school in Philadelphia at Temple University, graduating in 1984.

The same year he graduated, Hahn married Lota Leigh Morning at the First Presbyterian Church of Allentown, according to the local paper at the time. Hahn told MD Anderson that the worst advice he was ever given was to "never get married."

"If I'd listened to that advice, I'd have missed spending my life with my best friend," he told MD Anderson.

The couple have four children and a rescue dog.

Their online presence shows a love of wine and travel to Italy. He told MD Anderson that he gets up at 4 a.m. every day to read and work out, and if he wasn't a doctor, he'd be running a vineyard.

Hahn has been a Republican donor, according to Federal Election Commission records. Unlike some other FDA leaders, Hahn has received very little money from the medical device and drug industries. According to CMS' Open Payments database, Hahn received $1,021.40 in lodging and travel money from a radiation oncology device company in 2017 — much less than others in his field, according to the report.

To get the top FDA job, Hahn will have to be approved by the Senate. He would inherit an agency that since March has been going through an agency-wide reorganization.

Sharpless has been the acting FDA commissioner since April and had the backing to become the agency's permanent head by dozens of medical associations and past FDA commissioners who sent letters to the White House advocating on his behalf in September.

The agency is managing a vaping crisis that has killed at least 37 people nationwide and has raised real concerns about the safety and regulation of e-cigarettes. The country's opioid crisis has 1.7 million Americans struggling with addiction and there were more than 70,200 overdose deaths in 2017, according to the CDC. There are also challenges involving delays in drug approvals, as well as problems with the manufacturing safety of drugs.

On Friday, medical associations praised Hahn for his work.

"For several years, I served with Dr. Hahn on a National Cancer Institute study section, and I always found him to be an extremely thoughtful and science-oriented grant reviewer," said American Association for Cancer Research President-elect Dr. Antoni Ribas, in a statement. Ribas is a professor of medicine at the University of California, Los Angeles. "He has always put the interests of patients first, by embracing the importance of regulatory science to truly inform and improve the way new cancer medicines are evaluated for safety and efficacy."

"We welcome the nomination of a permanent FDA commissioner at a time when the agency's role to protect and promote public health is only growing in importance," said American Heart Association CEO Nancy Brown in a statement. "Should Dr. Hahn be confirmed, we look forward to working with him to aggressively advance public health priorities in areas including tobacco control, nutrition, drug and device development and review and more."

Correction: This story has been updated to reflect that President Donald Trump has not yet nominated Dr. Stephen Hahn. It has also been updated to include the correct U.S. News & World Report ranking.

CNN's Amanda Sealy contributed to this report.

Trump blasts California governor’s forest management, though last week’s big fires didn’t start in forests

But they did not burn through large swaths of forests.

Bob Dylan - Travelin' Thru, 1967 - 1969: The Bootleg Series, Vol. 15 -Sony Legacy The latest chapter in the highly acclaimed Bob Dylan Bootleg Series revisits Dylan's pivotal musical journeys to Nashville, from 1967 to 1969, focusing on previously unavailable recordings made with Johnny Cash and unreleased tracks from the John Wesley Harding, Nashville Skyline, and Self Portrait sessions. LP 1 finds Dylan in Columbia's Studio A in Nashville recording alternate versions of compositions written for John Wesley Harding (October 17 and November 6, 1967) and Nashville Skyline (February 13-14, 1969) while introducing a new song "Western Road" (a Nashville Skyline outtake). LP's 2 and 3 are centered around Dylan's collaborations with American music icon Johnny Cash including the much sought-after Columbia Studio A sessions and on-stage performances at the Ryman Auditorium (May 1, 1969) for the recording of the premiere episode of The Johnny Cash Show (originally broadcast on ABC-TV on June 7, 1969). LP 3 closes with tracks recorded on May 17, 1970 with Grammy Award-winning bluegrass banjo legend Earl Scruggs for the PBS television special, "Earl Scruggs: His Family and Friends" (originally aired January 1971). Jeff Lynne's ELO - From Out Of Nowhere -Sony From Out Of Nowhere is the new album from Rock & Roll Hall of Famer and music legend Jeff Lynne , and follows up a remarkable run of sold out European and American tours. Jeff Lynnes ELO, whose music has touched fans deeply across three generations now, has found himself in recent years at the peak of his powers as a songwriter, musician and producer. This new collection features a buoyant title song which opens the ten-track record including the wistful Help Yourself to the celebratory Down Came the Rain to the churning rocker One More Time to the sweet closer, Songbird. As does its predecessor, 2015s Alone in the Universe , From Out Of Nowhere shows Lynne finding new facets to his signature sound, at once drawing on his globally loved legacy and forging new paths in both sounds and emotions. Once again, he plays nearly every note of the music on guitars, bass, piano, drums, keyboards and vibes, as well as singing all of the lead and layered harmony vocals. Steve Jay, who also engineered the album, adds some percussion. R.E.M. - Monster: 25th Anniversary Edition -Craft Recordings R.E.M. s ninth album, Monster , was released at a time when the band were coming off the peak of their mainstream success, following Out of Time (1991) and Automatic For The People (1992). Coming from a long break in touring (the band famously didnt tour with the two previous records), Monster represented an intentional shift in R.E.M.s sound, a return to rock with guitar laden, simple arrangements. It was released to strong reviews and significant global success - reaching #1 on Billboard, and least 7 other countries. In 1995 the band promoted that album with their first concert tour since 1989 (although several band members suffered health problems). The album includes the singles; Whats The Frequency, Kenneth?, Crush with Eyeliner, Bang and Blame, and Strange Currencies.Commemorating the albums 25th anniversary, original Producer Scott Litt re-approached R.E.M.s Monster by remixing the entire album. The original 1995 version was dense in guitars and feedback with the vocals mixed within the sonic wall, but on this alternative version the guitars are pulled back and the vocals pushed forward to create a more open sound and showcase often-revealing lyrics.The deluxe edition package also includes previously unreleased demos, a complete live performance, recorded from the Monster tour in Chicago on June 3, 1995, plus a Blu-ray disc which features the bands tour documentary Road Movie, five original music videos, as well as the complete remastered Monster album in 5.1 surround sound and hi-resolution audio.

Our 2019 Portland Book Festival Picks

 Cache   
Who should you check out? by Suzette Smith

The popular, one-day Portland Book Festival (PBF) returns this Saturday to fill area bookshelves, introduce new voices, and provide authors a spotlight to read and discuss their works. This is the fifth year since local nonprofit Literary Arts took over the floundering Wordstock—they changed the festival’s name last year—and, along the way, we’ve watched the fest get a little stronger: crammed to its gills the first year, better organized the second, and so on. Last year the fest was thriving—if conspicuously stamped with Bank of America branding.

The big names at PBF this year are undoubtedly Malcolm Gladwell and Ambassador Susan Rice, former US National Security Advisor. But here are a few excellent writers that you may not have heard about yet, but who are totally worth checking out. SUZETTE SMITH

Steph Cha

It’s hard to believe that Steph Cha’s Your House Will Pay was only just released, because I’ve been hearing buzz about this book for the entire summer. The hype is warranted. Known for her Juniper Song detective trilogy, Cha stepped outside her usual niche with this novel, though the book is still full of suspense, and her two protagonists—a Korean American woman named Grace Park and an African American man named Shawn Matthews—have many mysteries to unravel. Cha based the novel’s story on the tragic ’91 murder of 15-year-old Latasha Harlins, whose death is considered an inciting cause of the ’92 Los Angeles riots. Neither of her appearances should be missed. (Pop-up reading by “Stars and Bars” in the Hank Willis Thomas exhibition, Sat Nov 9, 11:30 am, Portland Art Museum, 1219 SW Park; “Hard Conversations: Race, Family, America,” 1:30 pm, Whitsell Auditorium, 1219 SW Park, w/Jennine Capó Cruset, Mira Jacob, and Mat Johnson) SUZETTE SMITH

Ebony Flowers

There’s something unforgettable about the way Ebony Flowers draws. At a casual glance, the illustrations are rough, but further reading reveals a detailed, unique cartoonist. Her pages convey the restless energy of childhood, and the non-stop motion that churns in rooms full of people talking and reacting. Flowers’ debut work, Hot Comb, is a memoir and primer on Black hair that pulls no punches about the time and pain involved in hair pressing, relaxing, braiding, and more, but along the way Flowers unlocks way more than hair mysteries. Flowers wraps her short stories of friendship, family, and conflicting viewpoints up under the recurring theme of: “Who did your hair?” The end result is a whole new look into a world many never get to see. (“Finding Home: Fiction of Place,” Sat Nov 9, 12:45 pm, Miller Gallery at the Portland Art Museum, 1119 SW Park, w/Kristen Arnett, Kali Fajardo-Anstine, Stephen Hiltner) SUZETTE SMITH

Rainbow Rowell

There will be crowds for celebrated Young Adult—and now comic book—author Rainbow Rowell, but if you aren’t familiar with the YA genre, would you know? In 2013, Rowell received rave reviews for two intriguing works: Eleanor & Park was a YA book that transcended its intended age range. It described the low-level dread of an abusive relationship with a relatability that we, frankly, don’t see in adult fiction, but without overwhelming its youthful audience. Fangirl was lighter, exploring the social and academic conflicts of a college student who loves writing fan fiction. The really cool thing? Rowell’s next book was that fan fiction: a vampire wizard Harry Potter-esque romance/fantasy story called Wayward Son. And it was GOOD. Rowell’s newest book, Carry On, is the sequel, and, in true magical teen fashion, involves a road trip. Rowell has also been writing Marvel’s Runaways since 2017. In August, she debuted Pumpkinheads, her first original graphic novel, illustrated by Faith Evan Hicks. (“Last Chance: Endings and Beginnings,” Sat Nov 9, 1 pm, The Old Church, 1422 SW 11th, w/ Jennifer Dugan, Faith Erin Hicks, and Alicia Tate; interviewed by Jasmine Guillory, Sat Nov 9, 5 pm, First Congregational United Church of Christ, 1126 SW Park) SUZETTE SMITH

Ross Gay

Over the past decade, Ross Gay has built a following around his open-hearted poems that mix heartbreak and glee. In his latest, The Book of Delights, Gay ventures into prose with a series of short essays about daily pleasures. It’s loose, playful, and thoroughly delightful. Without fail, I leave Gay’s writing feeling renewed and grateful for this messy world, in all its complexities. (“Ordinary Life: Exploring the Spaces Between,” Sat Nov 9, 1:30 pm, Winningstad Theatre, 1111 SW Broadway, w/Michael Dickman, Karen Russell, John Freeman) JOSHUA JAMES AMBERSON

Kevin Huizenga

One of a handful of “style kings” in the world of indie comics, Kevin Huizenga’s clean, detailed cartooning is immediately recognizable. Much of his work alternates between Glenn Ganges—Huizenga’s autobio comic cipher—ruminating on straightforward, suburban happenings, and more experimental comics which break philosophical, in an attempt to show readers how small they truly are in the greater schemes of nature. Huizenga is a deep thinker beloved by deep thinkers. (“Stranger Things: Fiction from the Edge,” Sat Nov 9, 4:45 pm, Miller Gallery at the Portland Art Museum, 1119 SW Park, w/Molly Gloss, Karen Thompson Walker, S. Zainab Williams) SUZETTE SMITH

The 36 Best Things to Do in Portland This Weekend: Nov 8-10

Hit the links below and load your plate accordingly

Friday, Nov 8

Morgan Murphy
Listen, I’m not saying that Portland is entirely responsible for the success of Morgan Murphy’s career as a stand up and a comedy writer. But isn’t it interesting that she was born here and then went on to great acclaim as a writer for both Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon’s late-night talk shows and popular CBS sitcom 2 Broke Girls? That’s not even counting her work on stage where she redefines deadpan delivery for our modern hyperbolic age. All I’m saying is that Portland made Morgan Murphy, and I’m hoping she does the right thing by acknowledging that this weekend. (Fri-Sat Nov 8-9, 7:30 pm & 10 pm, Helium Comedy Club, $17-33) ROBERT HAM

HUMP!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! When the annual HUMP! amateur porn fest rolls into town, you know you’re going to be in for a hot time in the old town tonight. Don’t miss 21 new, sexy five-minute dirty flicks made by your friends and neighbors here in the Pacific Northwest that represent every stripe of sexual persuasion. Plus you get to vote on the lucky winners who will take home thousands in sweet cash MONEY. Get ready to laugh, squeal, and feel super tingly (down there) because HUMP! audience members have the time of their lives. But don’t delay, tickets for these shows are hotter than what you’ll see onscreen! (Fri-Sat Nov 8-9, 6:30 pm & 9 pm, Revolution Hall, $20-25, through Nov 23) WM. STEVEN HUMPHREY

Mikal Cronin, Shannon Lay
Mikal Cronin possess the uncanny knack for penning effortless-sounding pop gems. On his fourth record, Seeker, he mines his self-introspection and the comeback from a bad case of writer’s block with convincing aplomb, conjuring Tom Petty melodies on the single “Show Me” with help from Ty Segall’s Freedom Band (of which he is a card-carrying member). There’s a lot of inferno-inspired writing coming out of California following last year’s devastating wildfires, and Seeker is no different, exploring ideas of rebirth from destruction. Cronin seems a gentle soul armed with the ability to pull wisdom from a chaotic world. (Fri Nov 8, 9 pm, Mississippi Studios, $15-17, all ages) RYAN J. PRADO

Lit Crawl Portland

Click here for a complete schedule and list of participating venues. (Fri Nov 8, 6 pm, Various Locations, free)

David Sedaris
If you think you’re too cool for David Sedaris—the first of his name, brother of Amy, author of NPR’s old reliable holiday mainstay (c’mon, the Santaland Diaries is GOOD) and such humorist delights as Me Talk Pretty One Day and Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim—you’re lying to yourself and you need to stop. Sedaris’ dry wit is indispensable in trying times. Go get some! (Fri Nov 8, 7:30 pm, Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall, $32.50-57.50) MEGAN BURBANK

Twin Peaks
Chicago-hailing garage rockers Twin Peaks return to town for an all-ages, headlining show supporting their latest album, Lookout Low. (Fri Nov 8, 9 pm, Wonder Ballroom, $18-20, all ages)

Little Hurricane
With the weather growing colder and the sun going down earlier, now is the perfect time for discovering new music at home, especially when the artist in question—dirty blues band Little Hurricane—provides ideal background music for nocturnal snuggling on the couch. Their minimalist blues-rock has been the soundtrack of five Taco Bell commercials, which, as a cheap-burrito lover, almost makes me love the San Diego duo even more. The only thing better than a Friday night is one spent listening to Little Hurricane’s lo-fi sounds. Check out songs like “Haunted Heart,” “Sun Sets West,” and “Give ’em Hell,” and prepare yourself for one mother of a staycation. (Fri Nov 8, 9 pm, Doug Fir, $20-23) KATHERINE MORGAN

Portland Trail Blazers vs. Brooklyn Nets
The Trail Blazers return home for a Friday night game against Kyrie Irving and the new-look Brooklyn Nets. (Fri Nov 8, 7 pm, Moda Center, $31 & Up, all ages)

Jeffrey Lewis & The Voltage, Wuhlux
What can’t Jeffrey Lewis do? He’s the world’s leading authority on Watchmen, a noted comic book artist, and a brilliant (anti-) folk singer and lyricist. Catch up with him tonight when he brings the latest iteration of his band through the Fixin' To for a Friday-night performance that's guaranteed to lift your spirits heading into the weekend. (Fri Nov 8, 8 pm, The Fixin' To, $10)

IRCO Fundraiser

The Portland Book Festival
This one-day book fair and live reading / discussion event used to be called Wordstock, but no one can deny that Portland Book Festival has grown into its own cool beast. Since it’s only one day, it’s easy to splurge on a bunch of books, get them signed by your favorite authors, and sit in on a talk or two. Then you still have Sunday for laundry and “Book Church,” which is what I call making too much breakfast and sitting around with a huge pile of unread books. If you like the sound of this, but also want to get wild, make sure to scope the always boozy, popular Lit Crawl the night before. (Sat Nov 9, 9 am, Portland Art Museum, $15-20, all ages) SUZETTE SMITH

The Pacific Crest Comedy Fest
Portland’s comedy scene is bonkers (bonkers GOOD) which is why the addition of a brand-new comedy festival that features the greatest comedians from around town and across the nation is very welcome indeed!

But that ain’t all: Expect awesome podcasts and regular shows like Earthquake Hurricane, Minority Retort, Speechless, the return of Lez Stand Up, pant, pant, pant… TOO MANY TO MENTION!

The last time Robert Forster was in the Northwest, it was as a member of the Go-Betweens, performing in Seattle in 2005 during what would become that venerable pop group’s final tour. (Forster’s longtime musical partner Grant McLennan passed away suddenly a year later.) Much has happened in his life since then, including a regular gig as a music critic, an impassioned memoir about his work with McLennan, and three fantastic solo albums. His most recent, Inferno, finds Forster in peak form, with a folk-pop backing band, ambling through his back pages and unblinkingly facing his waning years with grace. (Sat Nov 9, 8 pm, Mississippi Studios, $22-25) ROBERT HAM

This time around—and in conjunction with the Pacific Crest Comedy Fest—our live show will feature host Kate Murphy, former host Bri Pruett, and former host Caitlin Weierhauser! AND they’re bringing along the hilarious Steven Wilber for the ride! In other words? If you want top-notch comics reading and reflecting on some of the Mercury’s funniest, weirdest, creepiest, and (very occasionally) sexiest submissions to our popular I, Anonymous column, you can’t do any better. And who knows, maybe Hawkeye will show up too. Not like he’s got anything better to do. (Sat Nov 9, 6 pm, Siren Theater, $10) ERIK HENRIKSEN

Do you need love, or do you need carbs? Taylor Tomlinson says they’re basically interchangeable and anyone who’s ever had baked macaroni and cheese will confirm: carbs are flat-out better. But would we have put this hilarious truth together before Tomlinson swept in like a wildly funny eagle with that gag clenched in her razor-sharp talons? Things I have compared Tomlinson to: a joke-firing machine gun and a powerful eagle. Needless to say, I’m hella excited to hear this up and coming comedian tape her next Netflix special in OUR CITY.

Sincerity is Gross: The Dirty Thirdiversary
James Barela's stand-up showcase makes it to its third year on this filthy planet, and if you thought this was the show where some sentimentality and (gasp) sincerity poked its head through the crust, you're pretty sadly fuckin' mistaken: Mr. Barela promises that when Anthony Desamito, Lance Edward, Dylan Carlino, Wendy Weiss, and Diana Potter all take the stage? They're comin' with their nastiest shit, son. (Sun Nov 10, 8 pm, The Slide Inn, free)

California Burning

 Cache   
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez blames it on climate change. For someone of such limited grasp of the facts, everything is climate change. As noted here and elsewhere California’s current fires seem to have been produced by bad government policy. Especially, by bad environmentalist policy. After all, California is deep blue. There aren’t any more Republicans left to blame. Thus, blame it on the climate.

Naturally, we want to know how this could have happened, how California could be overrun with fire and be lacking in electricity. Richard Lowry has a cogent take on the problems:

The state could have, if it wanted, pushed the utilities to focus on the resilience and safety of its current infrastructure — implicated in some of the state’s most fearsome recent fires — as a top priority. Instead, the commission forced costly renewable-energy initiatives on the utilities. Who cares about something as mundane as properly maintained power lines if something as supposedly epically important — and politically fashionable — as saving the planet is at stake?

Call Greta Thunberg. She’ll know what to do.

Of course, the environmentally woke citizens of California do not want forests to be cleared and to be managed. 

Meanwhile, California has had a decades long aversion to properly clearing forests. The state’s leaders have long been in thrall to the belief that cutting down trees is somehow an offense against nature, even though thinning helps create healthier forests. Biomass has been allowed to build up, and it becomes the kindling for catastrophic fires.

As Chuck DeVore of the Texas Public Policy Foundation points out, a report of the Western Governors’ Association warned of this effect more than a decade ago, noting that “over time the fire-prone forests that were not thinned, burn in uncharacteristically destructive wildfires.”

In 2016, then-Governor Jerry Brown actually vetoed a bill that unanimously passed the state legislature to promote the clearing of trees dangerously close to power lines. Brown’s team says this legislation was no big deal, but one progressive watchdog called the bill “neither insignificant or small.”

Holman Jenkins makes a similar point in the Wall Street Journal this morning:

The wildfire crisis is ultimately the product of a state politics controlled by interest groups whose agenda has drifted out of any cognizable relationship with the daily well-being of the state’s average citizen.

Because California accounts for less than 1% of global emissions, nothing it does will make a difference to climate, but its ratepayers shell out billions for wind and solar that might be better spent on fireproofing. A generation of ill-judged environmental activism has all but ended forest management in favor of letting dead trees and underbrush build up because it’s more “natural.” At the same time, residents resist any natural or planned fires that would consume this tinder before it gives rise to conflagrations like those now menacing Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Surely, the issue is complex. But, just as surely, the environmental activists in California have a great deal to answer for. Here’s betting that they shift the blame… to the NRA. 

After all, what could be more responsible for raging fires than… firearms.

Airbnb's 'party house' problem could spoil its public listing. Here's why its new rules to stop the rowdy blowouts might not even work.

 Cache   

airbnb brian chesky

Add one more "risk factor" to the upcoming prospectus Airbnb will release when it makes its stock market debut next year: Party houses.

The home-sharing service has built a booming business by making it easy for anyone to rent their homes to vacationers or business travelers looking for an alternative to a hotel. But the instant and easy access to homes has also caught the notice of teens and others looking for a place to throw wild parties. 

Last month, one of these party house rentals turned tragic when a shooting at an Orinda, Calif home left five people dead. As many as 100 people were at the house for a Halloween party, despite an explicit ban by the homeowner on renting the home for parties, according to the Associated Press.

The incident set off a furor and Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky has vowed to crack down on the problem, unveiling new verification and support policies Wednesday that he said would stop "bad actors" from abusing the trust the business has established with users.

But the policy changes are largely reactionary, coming after numerous problems at Airbnb party houses over the years. And many people that Business Insider spoke to were skeptical that the new rules would do much to actually stop Airbnb party houses.

"I think it's great that Airbnb is taking some action to rein in the most extreme cases of so-called party houses. But it should not have taken a multiple homicide incident for that to happen," University of Texas assistant professor Jake Wegmann told Business Insider. Wegmann's research focuses on the impact of short-term rentals on local real estate, and he published one of the landmark studies in 2016 that found the existence of Airbnb in San Francisco increased market rents. 

As Airbnb, which has been valued as high as $31 billion by private investors, moves closer to a public listing, its party problem has become a high-priority.

Verification, refunds, and high-risk reservations

The new rules laid out by Chesky involve four key changes:

  • Verification of all 7 million Airbnb listings to ensure the site listing is an accurate representation of the rental.
  • Rebooking or refunding guests who book locations that are not up to the new verification standards.
  • A 24/7 hotline and prominent customer support phone number for guests and neighbors near Airbnb listings.
  • Screening of reservations that are deemed "high-risk" to deter unauthorized parties.

In addition, Airbnb said it has hired two former law enforcement officials as advisors to help the company combat the range of abuses and problems that can occur with short-term home rentals. 

According to American Family Voices president Mike Lux, the home rental startup rewards absentee property owners that have limited interest in screening guests. American Family Voices sponsored the anti-Airbnb advocacy group Airbnb Watch, which chronicles Airbnb's negative impacts on local neighborhoods and real estate. 

"I don't exactly understand honestly what they are doing with that rule," Lux said. "They are making a lot of noise about it, but I don't know how they are going to enforce it."

A homeowner renting a basement out on the weekends is incentivized to screen potential guests, Lux explained, but a real estate "speculator" with multiple units is incentivized to get as many guests in each unit as possible to maximize profits. This is what leads to so-called party houses, and until hosts feel the pressure from Airbnb, they will continue to operate in their own interests, Lux said.

"I do know that ultimately the problem isn't solved unless you stop multi-unit operators," Lux said. "That's what will stop this wild party house problem. They need to monitor hosts and guests better, and they should take more responsibility when something goes wrong."

In the case of the Orinda house, it's unclear whether the new policies would have stopped the unauthorized party. According to the Associated Press, the unit had been rented by a woman who claimed her family members were concerned about health effects of the nearby wildfires in Sonoma County. The owner, Michael Wang, had received multiple citations from city officials for exceeding the home's capacity in the past according to The San Francisco Chronicle, but it's not clear whether Wang owned multiple rentals in California's Bay Area. 

According to Lux's group, there have been more than 30 news reports about violent incidents at Airbnb parties in recent months, including shootings at similar "party houses" in St. Paul, Minn., and Los Angeles, Calif. and other cities. 

Just weeks before the Orinda incident, a woman was shot in the arm in Arizona at an Airbnb house party, according to the Phoenix Fox television station. In May, an 18-year old was shot at a party in a Seattle home that had been rented on Airbnb, according to local media.

The Orinda Police Department couldn't comment on the specifics of the case as the search for the shooter is still ongoing. Airbnb has a contentious relationship with its hometown, inspiring legislation from San Francisco Supervisors Aaron Peskin and David Campos to fine the company $1,000 each day for unregistered listings. The company settled with the city in 2017 after a lengthy public fight to repeal the regulation.

"Three years ago, we said the law being passed, which was written by Airbnb, won't work because there was no skin in the game in terms of enforcement," Campos told the New York Times in 2017. of this city's relationship to Airbnb.

Going public in the face of local scrutiny

Airbnb has clashed with local governments before, and has continuously fought local legislation that sought to limit the company's influence or applied short-term rental restrictions and taxes at city or county levels. On Tuesday, the company suffered a stinging defeat in New Jersey as voters overwhelmingly approved stricter regulations for short-term rentals, legislation that Airbnb publicly opposed, according to the New York Times.

The company's relationship with local governments will be critical as Airbnb tries to sell itself to public investors. Airbnb has said it plans to list its shares on the stock market by 2020, either through a traditional IPO or direct listing.

At a time when other richly valued startups like Uber and Lyft have struggled in the public markets, Airbnb will face significant scrutiny around its business prospects and the various risks it faces.

"Surely this casts light on the need by potential investors to fully understand what, if any, liability issues this or any other 'bad behavior' on the part of renters raises for the company," IPO consultant and financial advisor Lise Buyer told Business Insider.

For Lux, the Airbnb critic, it comes down to the company taking responsibility. 

"If you put up a mega-platform like this that allows people to do business in this way, you absolutely have to take responsibility as a company," Lux told Business Insider. "You can't let pure libertarianism run amok. That can't be the way society operates."

Mississippi Democratic Party Needs to Overhaul Strategies, Outreach, Diversity

 Cache   
Best-selling author Angie Thomas, a Jackson native, is leaving Mississippi because she cannot stand to live among the toxic politics that hurts so many people. Photo by Anissa Photography.

Prominent novelist Angie Thomas is planning to leave Mississippi due to the toxic politics here, which was on prominent display in last night’s election outcome. The wildly successful graduate of Belhaven College grew up in Georgetown in Jackson and travels frequently to Atlanta, Los Angeles and beyond. Her first novel became a popular feature film, and now her second adapted film is in production. She told me in a recent Let’s Talk Jackson podcast that she is turning her career attention toward the film world as well as writing books.

But, as of now, Angie doesn’t plan to make films in her native Mississippi, even as she is investing in her old neighborhood, fixing up playgrounds and working to inspire kids, much as her hero Nipsey Hussle did in L.A., as she explained in our podcast and a recent cover story by JFP Culture Writer Aliyah Veal.

“I once considered putting my production company in Mississippi, filming projects in Mississippi,” Angie tweeted last night. “But I also realize the money from those projects would benefit politicians who don't see me as an equal. Money talks, and mine walks.”

The Real Root of Mississippi ‘Brain Drain’

Many of the same politicians who won statewide offices last night by pandering to Donald Trump love to talk about stopping Mississippi brain drain, of course. There's even a "Mississippi Brain Drain Commission" with an ugly website. But it’s always about anything but reversing hatefulness and intolerance of anyone not just like those in power.

Angie wasn’t the only one tweeting about this last night: Smart Mississippians crowded into my mentions to say they don’t think they can stay in the state much longer, while the election outcome discouraged many ex-pats who want to return home.

I and my staff have worked mightily to convince young people to stay in the state and use their energy and resources for progress here since I returned 18 years ago and then started this paper. It’s extremely common for me to be out in public—the last time at the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum a couple weeks ago—and a young professional I don’t know walks up to me to tell me that they were uncertain about moving to Jackson for a job or whatever, but picked up the Jackson Free Press while visiting and realized that the state has people who don’t fit the hateful stereotype. This has happened hundreds of times since the Jackson Free Press launched in 2002.

It’s getting hard to ask Mississippians to stay or return now, though. Just the tweets last night showed that their pain is real. A former Mississippi Youth Media Project student I worked with—a brilliant young white woman who attended Murrah High School and now goes to college out of state—tweeted last night that while she loves Mississippi, she doesn’t like it. As much as she was engaged here in trying to lift up the capital city and its public schools, while helping educate others about the state's racist history, I’m not going to hold my breath that she will return to live, perhaps ever.

She is following the path I and so many others chose: Get out before the state killed me with its sexism, racism I’m supposed to share, and cruelty to the less fortunate.

This is especially true for bright young minds because so much of the legislation out of the GOP supermajority is designed to hurt them, especially if they are young people of color, women, an immigrant or LGBTQ. And the state’s leaders disparage them at every turn for thinking differently. If we disagree at all, we are a horrific “liberal” or “socialist” monster—labels that Republicans here hurl around to mean anybody who isn’t a lapdog for Donald Trump or, frankly, someone who believes in true diversity at all tables and race and gender equity in our society.

Free, critical thinking is unacceptable. As Gov. Phil Bryant tweeted yesterday, "Here in Mississippi we are conservatives" ... except we're all not conservatives, and it's our state, too. This language is designed to run off those who don't agree, taking their votes and potential with them, and too often works.

The Problem with Mississippi Democrats

Then there is the Democratic Party in the state—which, truth be told, has been the real culprit, over all, since I returned in 2002. Compare what just happened in Kentucky as I tweeted last night—a state with 87% white population turned blue. Here, the state with the highest proportion of African Americans in the U.S. at around 38% got redder.

Republicans counter now that the Kentucky incumbent wasn't liked there; well, no one actually likes Tate Reeves here, either, it seems, so that doesn't explain it.

I’ve talked about this for years now—a timid, closed groupthink infects the Mississippi Democratic Party from the top, especially among the white men who traditionally control, fund and strategize for it. Certainly, many of them are well-meaning from a macro level; they talk a lot about education funding, which is vitally important but clearly cannot alone carry this party to victory in pretty much any election. Some burn through a lot of often-quiet funding for good causes—trying to change the Mississippi flag, funding fights for public-education laws—but often won’t put themselves out in front of the issues to take the direct hits and model what it looks like to weather them.

Many Democratic leaders here are afraid of offending white conservative voters to a ridiculous fault. I guess they really believe that voters they would lose by actually supporting women’s rights or learning to speak intelligently about racism to black people are the very ones who would turn around and vote for them if they shoot enough guns in TV ads. It’s theater of the absurd, not to mention funny math.

That ship has sailed, gentlemen. This Democratic race to oblivion found the bottom last night.

Ignore, Belittle Women at Your Peril, Dem Men

But here’s the thing: Women can help you right the ship, Dems, just as they are doing in other states, as last night’s results around the U.S., especially white suburbs, showed. You’re going to have to listen to women and invite us to all the tables, though, even as we start creating more forums of our own that are going to challenge all of you, regardless of party.

If there is anything I learned from visits and conversation with so many women over the last year while I recovered from breast cancer is that we’re all fed up, if we’re not the obedient ones already in cahoots with Pat Robertson or the Family Research Council. Starting with the desire to allow a mother to die rather than having an abortion, the state’s leadership is not on women’s side. Any woman.

Women are also talking to each other about the direct slights from men in power, including in the Democratic Party. While I’m not a partisan type by nature (I actually hate the concept of political parties), I have women friends who work with the party in various ways. Most talk about the sexism they encounter when trying to bring new ideas to the table. They are ignored, patted on the head, treated like they don’t know what they’re talking about.

Last night I texted one of my black women friends who volunteers with the party as the writing on the Mississippi wall became clear. She has a brilliant strategic mind and understands politics and what motivates voters backward and forward.

“We coulda told em,” I wrote.

“They wouldn’t listen to me,” she responded. “I don’t know what I’m taking about.”

But she does know. No matter. When it comes to legislation or campaigns targeted to “rural whites” to the exclusion of others, Dem leaders here expect women, African Americans and other people of color to suck it up and vote for the party, even though it keeps losing.

A major moment in this campaign cycle was when the Democratic nominee for lieutenant governor, Jay Hughes, voted for the anti-abortion “heartbeat bill” last session—in the very state where women came together in a grassroots campaign like we've never seen here before or since to defeat the personhood amendment at the polls in 2011. I later saw male strategists trying to take full credit, of course, but it was the bottom-up momentum by women meeting in living rooms that made the difference. My paper ran many columns by women from different backgrounds and political beliefs coming out against personhood that went viral in the state. Women came together like we must do more often.

Like the ads he ran for over a year on a conservative anti-women and racist blog here—the blogger calls women "sluts" and says breast implants should explode and ranks "hottest" young women reporters—Hughes’ reasoning on the heartbeat bill this year was absurd. It was something about making sure white Democrats wouldn’t become extinct. Then last night he took in fewer voters than attorney general candidate Jennifer Riley Collins, a black Democrat the party virtually ignored.

I criticized Hughes' vote rather mildly on Twitter after his heartbeat vote, and got hit with a barrage of personal insults from a sock-puppet account. Apparently, my criticism of his heartbeat bill meant I had a "secret crush" on Hughes.

"Mouth off Yall" tweeted: "It's just been amusing to watch the girl crush that @DonnerKay has had on @Jay4Mississippi over the last year." (Earlier, I had criticized Democrat Hughes for advertising on the misogynistic blog.) He went on: "It's like he dumped her or something. Maybe she's been paid off by the Russians to attack him on everything he does. Just calling balls & strikes here."

My criticism of Hughes couldn't be because I'm a woman, have a degree in political science and a master's in journalism, have watched and commented on politics in Mississippi for years, or because I'm a woman with intelligent opinions. No, it was a "crush." And this one is mild compared to insults I've gotten from Democratic men here with their real names attached. One even lunged at me in a bar one night due to my mayoral endorsement.

This, sadly, is not uncommon for women here. I’ve been called every name for speaking out loud about politics, especially if it is not in lockstep with Democratic leadership logic, which it pretty much never is. Too many men in our state care more about being told they're wrong than actually getting it right.

Many women tell me they are afraid to speak up because they see how men talk to me when I do. They fear losing jobs and opportunities or public smears. Let that sink in.

Sucking It Up for the Party Won’t Work

What I and many other women have been saying for years is now flashing in neon: sucking it up for the party won’t work. What the Dems in Mississippi must do is start today—not in three-and-a-half years—to pack away their defensiveness and create a new kind of welcoming party that doesn’t pander to racists and misogynists. Just go ahead and let the GOP own that. I don’t mean a hard shift to the Bernie Sanders left. I mean the kind of collaboration that can result when more not-white men are invited in, asked for feedback and listened to respectfully. If there’s anything the Mississippi Democratic Party needs right now, it is to put hats firmly in hand, get out into our communities and really listen to people. All of them. The time for timidity and fragility is past.

What must come first is a welcoming attitude to the Democratic tent if that party is to survive here. And, yes, allow a Stacey Abrams into Mississippi to help get out the vote, as well as engage prominent African Americans right here in the state. I mean, look at the mailers and TV ads—Republicans are going to associate Dems, and even reasonable Republicans, with people like Sanders and AOC anyway and call the candidate “socialist” or such no matter what you actually believe. So at least try to get another 50,000 votes out of forming real multiracial coalitions.

Angie Thomas was still tweeting this morning about her decision to leave and take her money with her, even as she still plans to invest back into her community here. “I have plans to create jobs, affordable housing, and recreation. I’m already putting things into place. And I don’t have to live there to do it. What are YOU doing besides Tweeting?” she told people who were complaining about her decision to leave.

She also retweeted @kaykaypolitiks who supported her decision as a way to explain how hard the toxic politics are on black Mississippians not considered welcome here by Republicans. “These elections take a toll on black bodies... creatively, mentally, spiritually, physically etc. I say go where you can be well, @angiecthomas. Much love," @kaykaypolitiks wrote.

I then asked Angie this morning if any Democratic leaders had reached out to her to help them connect to her fan base in the state—kind of an obvious ask for a party that so desperately needs to grow its voter base. The brilliant best-selling author’s answer, sadly, did not surprise me.

“Lol nope. They’re scared to even follow me on social media,” Angie answered.

That just says it all. It's time to wake up, Democrats, to the potential and new voters all around you in Mississippi. Clearly, the alternative is a loser’s game.

But there’s hope in such a dramatic loss for actual Democratic change here to rise from the ashes; the excuses are over. I saw a tweet today from a white male Democrat I’ve tangled with after past elections over the need to hire new strategists in the state who understand the faulty logic of pandering for the same white conservative voters. In our last engagement, he was condescending and dismissive to me.

This morning, he tweeted a mea culpa to his followers: “All is not lost, but things will go SO. MUCH. SLOWER. if white men in this party, including myself, do not directly advocate for more diverse leadership.”

Exactly. Women have been saying that here for a long, long time. It's well past time for men to start listening.

What Paul George's impending return means for the Clippers

 Cache   
The Los Angeles Clippers, who dismissed the rival Lakers to open the season and look dominant with reigning Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard at the helm of the operation, are a week away from gaining strength. Days after ramping up his practice workload over the weekend, injured six-time All-Star Paul George is still targeting the middle of next week for his return to game action, The Athletic's Sam Amick reported. The Clips are reportedly planning for George to debut on the road against either the Houston Rockets on Nov. 13 or the New Orleans Pelicans the following night, resting on one end of that back-to-back.

Гуинет Джоунс (Gwyneth Jones)
валлийская певица (драматическое сопрано). Очень быстрый взлет позволил Гвинет Джоунс занять лидируещее положение в оперном мире, также довольно быстро она и сошла,оставив после себя воспоминание как о `Гламурной примадонне`... Ее любила пресса, критики к ней были неравнодушны, она щеголяла в костюмах от великих кутюрье-словом - звезда...но вполне заслуженная! В годы, когда сошли со сцены великие примадонны оперы как Биргит Нильссон или Элизабет Шварцкопф,их место заняла почти в том же репертуаре Г.Джоунс, став на короткое время примой в операх Вагнера и Р.Штраусса, разумеется, она пела и Верди и Пуччини, но слава и известность принесли ей именно партии в вагнеровско-штрауссовском репертуаре. Вершиной в оперной карьере Гвинет Джоунс стало участие в юбилейной постановки тетралогии Р.Вагнера `Кольцо Нибелунга` под управлением Пьера Булеза - ставшее уже легендарной, перевернувшее представление о вагнеровском цикле,именно в этой, почти скандальной постановке Г.Джоунс исполнила партию Брунгильды--ставшую знаменательной и одной из лучших в ее карьере. Брунгильда-Джоунс очень приземлённая, человечная, так не похожая на холодную и непревзойденную Биргит Нильссон! Джоунс совсем другая - нежная, трепетная, очень женственная, лиричная, и даже в финале она не теряет своего человеческого, приземлённого образа, а пение этой приземлённой Брунгильды полно чувств, эмоций, особого шарма и привлекательности - такой Брунгильды оперный мир тогда не знал - почти переворот, но как показало время, именно такое `очеловечивание`будет преобладать в `Кольце` в дальнейшие годы, а Гвинет Джоунс оказалось первой в ряду таких героинь. Ставшее почти легендарной партия Брунгильды осталось одной из лучших в оперном наследии `гламурной примадонны` Гвинет Джоунс... Участие Г.Джоунс в постановках в Байрейте не только подтвердило реноме Джоунс как ведущей вагнеровской певицы, но и явилось началом `новых времен и постановок` в весьма консервативном оплоте вагнеровского наследия. Вершиной этих `времен`стала легендарная и ставшей эпохальной `Кольцо Нибелунга` под управлением П.Булеза,а сама Гвинет Джоунс стала мегазвездой нового поколения и наследницей великих имен в вагнеровском исполнительском наследии. Оперы Р.Штраусса занимали особое место в репертуаре Гвинет Джоунс. Среди ее героинь были и Саломея, Электра, даже Маршальша в `Кавалере Роз`, но особая удача исполнение партии Елены в `Елене Египетской`(довольно редкая звучащая опера), поставившая Г.Джоунс в ряд крупнейших штрауссовских певиц. Этот образ так подходивший Г.Джоунс был мастерски ею обработан: ее Елена - тонкая, умная женщина, красива, как всегда, несколько рафинирована и очень привлекательна...На многие годы именно образ созданный Гвинет Джоунс в этой редко звучащей опере стал, наравне с Брунгильдой, образом самой Гвинет Джоунс, названной журналистами `гламурной примадонной`...Голос чистый, почти небесной чистоты, доходит в сугубо драматические моменты до полного иступления, переходя почти на шепот, удивляя энергетикой и экспрессией - такова Саломея, одна из лучщих партий Гвинет Джоунс....непередаваемые впечетления.. Совершенно другая Гвинет Джоунс в другой своей эталонной партии - Медея Л.Керубини (в известной записи Л.Гарделли), грозная, ревнивая, но слабая из-за терзающих душу сомнений и тревог, и ради любви, и ради самопожертвования Медея-Джоунс совершает круг ада, погибая, но так и не сломившись перед лицом ее врага-мужчины, которого она любит....Медея в интерпретации Г.Джоунс-красива, опасна, коварна, даже обворожительна, ее пение заходит в заоблачные дали, как и ее месть, не знающая никаких преград... Медея в интерпретации Гвинет Джоунс-одна из интереснейших в дискографии, мало кто смог достичь такого уровня!

Бизада Отекеевна (в Указе – Утекеевна) Жиенгазина
бригадир почтальонов Кустанайского почтамта Министерства связи Казахской ССР. Родилась в поселке Кос-Карасу современной Костанайской области Республики Казахстан в крестьянской семье. Казашка. Отец – Отекей Рыскалиев - был председателем колхоза, мама вела домашнее хозяйство, воспитывал 9 детей. С ранних лет помогала родителям, ухаживала за домашними животными, работала в поле. Окончила 9 классов казахской школы-интерната имени Ибрая Алтынсарина в городе Кустанай. В 1955 году вышла замуж. В феврале 1964 года поступила работать почтальоном на Кустанайский почтамт. Через два года стала бригадиром. В течение многих лет ее бригада из семи почтальонов удерживает первенство в соревновании. Свои обязанности она исполняла аккуратно и быстро, строго соблюдая контрольные сроки подборки и доставки корреспонденции. Не было случая брака в работе. Двадцать своих доставочных участков изучила досконально. А по двум из них разносила газеты и журналы, даже не делая предварительной расписки: по памяти, что куда и кому. Разносила почту, перевыполняя норму. На сортировку пачки газеты было по нормативам отведено 15 минут, а она справлялась за тринадцать. У почтальонов на фальцовку газет уходило 5 секунд, а у Жиенгазиной 2 секунды. В предпраздничные дни заходит в квартиры, предлагает праздничные открытки и конверты. Ежемесячно выручка от такой продажи достигает 80-100 рублей. Более тридцати почтальонов получили у нее путевку в жизнь. Говорили он настоящей «школе» Жиенгазиной. Указом Президиума Верховного Совета СССР от 2 апреля 1981 года за выдающиеся производственные достижения, досрочное выполнение заданий десятой пятилетки и социалистических обязательств Жиенгазиной Бизаде Утекеевне присвоено звание Героя Социалистического Труда с вручением ордена Ленина и золотой медали «Серп и Молот». Стала единственной в Казахстане женщиной-почтальоном и одной из 7 почтальонов в Советском Союзе, удостоенных этой высокой награды. После получения высокого звания ей неоднократно предлагали перейти на должность «оператора», но она очень любила свою работу и продолжала трудиться почтальоном.

Джонни Риверс (Johnny Rivers)
американский рок-исполнитель, автор песен, певец и продюсер. Исполняет народные песни, блюз, а также возрожденные старые рок-н-ролльные композиции. Наибольший успех Риверса пришелся на середину-конец 1960-х – именно тогда он исполнил свои знаменитые песни 'Poor Side of Town', 'Summer Rain' и 'Secret Agent Man'. Настоящее имя музыканта – Джон Генри Рамистелла (John Henry Ramistella), родился он в 1942 году в Нью-Йорке (New York City). Впрочем, позже, когда отец его потерял работу, семье пришлось переехать в Батон-Руж, штат Луизиана (Baton Rouge, Louisiana). Именно там, не получая специального музыкального образования, Джонни полюбил музыку и начал играть на гитаре. Он находился тогда под сильным влиянием 'южной' музыки, слушал мемфисские радиостанции и музыку-кантри из Нэшвилла (Nashville), и уже в возрасте 10 лет мальчик мечтал о создании собственной группы. Будучи учеником старшей школы, Джони организовал группу 'The Spades', и в середине 1950-х ребята уже попробовали первые студийные записи. Играли они на танцах и вечеринках, а в конце 1950-х Джонни отправился в Нью-Йорк. Именно тогда он изменил свое имя на 'Джонни Риверс', в честь реки Миссисипи (Mississippi River). Первые его записи не продавались особенно успешно, и в 1959-м он вернулся в Батон-Руж. К тому моменту самооценка молодого музыканта несколько пошатнулась – Джонни уже не был так уверен в своем таланте и славном будущем. Впрочем, жизнь тем временем продолжалась, и в 1960-м Риверс повстречался со своим именитым земляком Джеймсом Бертоном (James Burton), который сумел 'протолкнуть' одну из песен Джонни. Так, в том же году музыкант отправился в Лос-Анджелес (Los Angeles), где встретился с легендарным музыкантом Рики Нельсоном (Ricky Nelson), после чего композиция Риверса попала в репертуар Нельсона. Он остался в Лос-Анджелесе, работая в студии звукозаписи. Вскоре он получил пост продюсера, продолжая при этом записывать и собственные песни. Успеха, впрочем, по-прежнему не было. Это было начало 1960-х, и Джонни уже написал тогда одну из своих самых знаменитых песен для британского сериала 'Danger Man'. Американская версия шоу называлась 'Secret Agent', а песня 'Secret Agent Man' стала безусловным хитом. Именно тогда пришло долгожданное признание – песня была продана более чем миллионным тиражом. Кстати, к тому моменту Джонни Риверс стал очень востребованным 'живым' музыкантом – ему были открыты двери в лучшие клубы и концертные площадки Лос-Анджелеса, в том числе 'Whisky a Go Go', 'West Hollywood' и 'Sunset Strip'. Причудливую смесь ритм-н-блюза, бита, буги и рок-н-ролла приходил слушать без преувеличения весь голливудский бомонд. Большой популярностью пользовалась песня 'Summer Rain'. Кстати, успешный продюсер, Джоннни уже набрал к тому моменту команду блестящих молодых музыкантов, которые и обеспечивали его новым материалом. Джонни Риверс получил репутацию оного из самых стильных и модных концертных исполнителей. В тех же 1960-х Риверс записал альбомы 'In Action' в 1964-м и 'Johnny Rivers Rocks the Folk' в 1965-м; 'Changes' в 1966-м и 'Rewind' в 1967-м; 'Realization' в 1968-м и 'A Touch of Gold' в 1969-м. Слава Джонни Риверса продолжилась и в 1970-х, он записал девять студийных альбомов, среди которых были 'L.A.Reggae' 1972-го; 'The Road' 1974-го; 'New Lovers and Old Friends' 1975-го; 'Outside Help' 1978-го и другие. Увы, к концу десятилетия популярность музыканта все же пошла на убыль. Впрочем, он все еще оставался весьма востребованным концертным исполнителем, а, кроме того, в Европе интерес к его творчеству был по-прежнему огромным. К началу 1980-х Джонни почти целиком сосредоточился именно на живых выступлениях, постепенно забросив студийные записи. Лишь в 1990-х он возобновил деятельность своего лейбла 'Soul City Records', основанного еще в 1960-х. На сегодняшний день Джонни Риверс продолжает выступать и записываться, он по-прежнему очень популярен в Южной Америке. В 2009-м вышел его альбом 'Shadows on the Moon', а в 2010-м – сингл 'New Home'. В том же 2009-м музыкант был введен в Зал Славы музыки Луизианы (The Louisiana Music Hall of Fame).

Joni Mitchell (700x544, 355Kb)
1943
Джони Митчелл (Joni Mitchell; урожденная - Роберта Джоан Андерсон, Roberta Joan Anderson)
канадская певица, композитор, гитаристка, пианистка. Родилась в Форт МакЛеод, провинция Альберта, Канада. Работала в самых разных стилях: от фолк-рока, пения под гитару до электронной поп-музыки. Однако неизменными оставались всегда два основных элемента – ее смелая и глубокая лирика, построенная на личном опыте, внутренних переживаниях и неповторимый голос: то приглушенный, то звонкий, всегда пластичный и женственный. По рассказам самой певицы, она начала петь, находясь в больнице, будучи в детстве на долгое время прикованной к кровати полиомиелитом. В ранней юности научилась играть на гитаре и увлекшись фолк-музыкой, исполняла традиционные американские песни. Собираясь стать художницей, поступила в художественный колледж, но вскоре музыка заняла главное место в ее жизни, когда будущая Джони Митчелл осознала, что песни – это те же картины, но только написанные словами и звуками. Однако певица не оставила и занятий живописью. Так, большинство дисков Митчелл оформлены ею собственноручно. Имя Джони Митчелл появилось, когда в 1965 она вышла замуж за Чака Митчелла (Chuck Mitchell), также исполнителя фолк-песен. В 1966, вскоре после переезда в Детройт, она рассталась с мужем и начала активно заниматься собственной музыкальной карьерой. В 1967 записала и выпустила свой дебютный альбом «Джони Митчелл» («Joni Mitchell»), который принес ей большой успех. Песня «Обе стороны одновременно» (Both Sides Now) стала одной из ее самых известных песен и впоследствии исполнялась разными музыкантами. Одной из первых свою версию этой песни записала популярная фолк-певица того времени Джуди Коллинз (Judy Collins). Песни Дж.Митчелл часто исполнялись другими музыкантами, что также является свидетельством ее композиторского и поэтического таланта. Два последующих альбома, «Облака» (Clouds, 1969) и «Леди Каньона» («Ladies of the Canyon», 1970) продемонстрировали творческую зрелость молодой певицы. Песни этих альбомов представляли собой баллады исповедального характера, исполненные под гитару или фортепиано. Тексты песен содержали серьезные поэтические достоинства. В основном в них шла речь об отношениях между женщиной и мужчиной, о боли, которую люди часто причиняют друг другу. Преобладающее настроение в песнях Дж.Митчелл – это грусть. Говоря от лица женщины, ей удалось не попасть в рамки т.н. «женской поэзии», т.к. слова ее песен, переживания, описываемые в них и та манера, в которой это сделано, одинаково близки всем людям, независимо от пола. Песня «Вудсток» (Woodstock) из третьего альбома, написанная Митчелл по рассказам ее друзей (сама певица не была на этом знаменитом фестивале 1969), стала гимном ее поколения. Наиболее известна версия этой песни, сделанная в то же время группой «Кросби, Стиллз, Нэш и Янг» (Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young). В третьем альбоме есть еще одна многократно исполняемая другими музыкантами песня – «Большое желтое такси» («Big Yellow Taxi»). Одна из самых последних версий принадлежит американской группе «Каунтин Кроуз» (Counting Crows); она появилась в 2003 и часто звучала в российском радиоэфире. В поисках необходимого звучания начала перестраивать гитару, изобретая собственные способы настройки, т.к. традиционная настройка не всегда ей нравилась и ограничивала ее возможности. Всего она придумала более 50 видов настройки для 6-струнной гитары. Квинтэссеницей творчества Дж.Митчелл в жанре фолк-рока стал диск 1971 «Голубое» (Blue), принесший ей мировую известность. Немало слушателей, не принимающих дальнейших изменений в музыке Митчелл, считают Голубое вершиной ее творчества.
 (699x641, 131Kb)
В записи этого альбома участвовал известный американский гитарист и певец Джеймс Тейлор (James Taylor), с которым Митчелл в тот период неоднократно устраивала совместные концерты. Одно из таких выступлений было выпущено в начале 1970-х на пластинке под названием «Джони Митчелл и Джеймс Тейлор: закрой глаза» («Joni Mitchell & James Taylor: Close Your Eyes»). Став очень популярной певицей, Митчелл решила искать новые пути, чтобы уйти от амплуа фолк-певицы. В ее альбоме «Для роз» (For the Roses, 1972) прослеживается влияние джаз-рока. Вокал Митчелл и до этого альбома обладал джазовыми оттенками. Самым ее коммерчески успешных диском стал альбом «Ухаживания и обольщение» («Court and Spark», 1974). В 1975 вышел диск «Шуршание летних трав» («The Hissing of Summer Lawns»), где она попробовала соединить свои песни с этнической и авангардной музыкой. Во второй половине 1970-х выпустила несколько альбомов в сотрудничестве с джазовыми музыкантами: Уэйн Шортер (Wayne Shorter), Лэрри Карлтон (Larry Carlton), а также легендарным бас-гитаристом Жако Пасториусом (Jaco Pastorius). Первой совместной работой стал диск «Хиджра» («Heijra», 1976), посвященный дорожным путешествиям, за ним последовал «Безрассудная дочь Дона Жуана» («Don Juan's Reckless Daughter», 1977), а в 1979 был выпущен альбом «Мингус» («Mingus»), над которым работала вместе с легендарным джазовым композитором и контрабасистом Чарли Мингусом (Charlie Mingus). Он написал для нее несколько инструментальных пьес, а она сочинила тексты. Альбом посвящен памяти Мингуса, умершего незадолго

BMW 2 Serisi Gran Coupe 2020 Nisan’da Türkiye’de

Borusan Otomotiv’in Türkiye distribütörü olduğu BMW’nin kompakt segmentteki en yeni temsilcisi BMW 2 Serisi Gran Coupe yüzünü gösterdi.

Hizmetix Çar, 11/06/2019 - 16:03

BMW’nin 7 yıl önce başlattığı Gran Coupe akımının son temsilcisi olan BMW 2 Serisi Gran Coupe, BMW'nin sahip olduğu dinamizmi estetik ve duygulara hitap eden bir tasarım ile birleştiriyor. 4 kapılı coupe formu ile oldukça sportif bir tasarıma sahip olan BMW 2 Serisi Gran Coupe, alçak tavan çizgisine rağmen iç mekânda sunduğu geniş ve fonksiyonel yaşam alanı ve teknolojik özellikleri ile segmentinin en dikkat çekici modellerinden biri olacak. 2020 yılı Nisan ayından itibaren Türkiye’de yollarla buluşacak olan BMW 2 Serisi Gran Coupe’de 1.5 litre hacminde 3 silindirli dizel ve benzinli motor seçenekleri görev yapacak.

 

Çerçevesiz kapılar.

Kasım ayında düzenlenecek Los Angeles Otomobil Fuarı’nda dünya tanıtımı yapılacak olan 2 Serisi Gran Coupe’nin öne çıkan özellikler arasında, dinamik olarak gerilmiş siluet, çerçevesiz kapı camları ve bagaj kapağının ortasına kadar uzanan stop lambaları dikkat çekiyor. Markanın bir simgesi haline gelen far tasarımı ve geniş böbrekleri ile bir BMW olduğunu hissettiren BMW 2 Serisi Gran Coupe, standart olarak sunulan LED farları ile dikkat çekici bir ön yüze sahip. 4,526 milimetre uzunluğundaki 2 Serisi Gran Coupe’nin genişliği 1,800 milimetre yüksekliği ise 1,420 milimetre. Sportif tasarımına rağmen 2.670 milimetrelik dingil mesafesi sayesinde iç mekânda da oldukça geniş bir kullanım alanı sunuyor. Ayrıca 430 litrelik bagaj hacmi de geniş yük eşiği sayesinde eşya yükleme sırasında kolaylık sağlıyor. Arka koltukların yatırılmasıyla bu alan daha da genişletilebiliyor.

 

Benzinli ve dizel EfficientDynamics motor seçenekleri.

BMW’nin önden çekişli platformu üzerinde geliştirilen BMW 2 Serisi Gran Coupe, sahip olduğu teknolojik yeniliklerin çoğunu Yeni BMW 1 Serisi’nden alıyor. BMW 2 Serisi Gran Coupe’de biri benzinli diğeri dizel olmak üzere 3 silindirli iki farklı motor seçeneği görev alacak. BMW EfficientDynamics ailesinin en son üyesi olan bu verimli motorların ilkini 116 bg güç ve 270 Nm tork üreten BMW 216d Gran Coupe oluşturuyor. BMW 218i Gran Coupe’deki 1.5 litre hacmindeki benzinli motor seçeneği ise 5.2 litreye kadar inen karma yakıt tüketimi ile 140 bg güç ve 220 Nm sunarak 0’dan 100’e 8.7 saniyede ulaşıyor. Tüm motor seçeneklerinde 7 ileri çift kavramalı Steptronic şanzıman standart olarak sunuluyor. 2 Serisi GranCoupe’nin zirvesini ise M235i xDrive temsil ediyor. BMW M235i xDrive dört tekerlekten çekiş sistemi, mekanik Torsen sınırlı kaydırmalı diferansiyel sistemi, M Sport direksiyon kutusu ve M Sport frenleri ile serinin en güçlü versiyonunu oluşturuyor. 8 ileri Steptronic şanzımanın görev yaptığı bu versiyonda en hızlı kalkışın yapılmasına yardımcı olan Launch Control modu da bulunuyor.

 

Yüksek güvenlik, üst düzey işçilik.

BMW 2 Serisi Gran Coupe’nin yüksek çözünürlüğe sahip dijital göstergeleri ve sportif direksiyonu ile iç mekanda sunduğu premium hissini en üst seviyeye çıkarıyor. Yüksek kaliteli malzemeler ve yenilikçi detayların buluştuğu geniş iç mekânda, arkadan aydınlatmalı trim şeritleri de altı farklı renk seçeneği ile yarı saydam efektler oluşturarak iç mekândaki atmosferi değiştirmeye yardımcı oluyor. Yenilikçi sürüş destek sistemlerine de yer verilen BMW 2 Serisi Gran Coupe zengin güvenlik özellikleriyle dikkat çekiyor. 70 ila 210 km / s arasında çalışan Şerit Terk Uyarısı’nın yanı sıra; Şerit Değiştirme Uyarı sistemini de içeren Sürüş Asistanı, arka çarpışma uyarısı ve çapraz trafik uyarısı özelliklerine de sahip.

 Cache   

Hailey Baldwin's latest outfit is all about comfort. While out and about in Los Angeles, California, the 22-year-old model was seen wearing a silk pajama-inspired set. Her silk separates were by designer Alexander Wang. She left the button-up shirt mostly undone to show off some skin and put her abs on display. The set also came with a matching pair of silk high-waisted trousers. Her stylist Maeve Reilly, who put together her look, called out her amazing sneakers that made us do a double take.

If you take a closer look, Hailey's wearing a pair of black Vans from the brand's collaboration with California-based skate and streetwear brand Rhude. The black kicks feature California license plate-inspired details on the foxing of the sneakers. If you're hoping to get your hands on the coveted sneakers, you're in luck because they are surprisingly still available online for $316. As for her accessories, Hailey wore her go-to gold Jennifer Fisher hoop earrings, which cost $295, and carried a black Staud croc-embossed bag. Keep reading to see all angles of Hailey's laid-back outfit. Then, shop her exact Vans x Rhude sneakers, as well as similar picks for your wardrobe if you're feeling inspired.

Venkatesh Rao on Waldenponding

 Cache   

walden-pond.jpg
Writer and management consultant Venkatesh Rao talks about Waldenponding with EconTalk host Russ Roberts. Rao coined the term Waldenponding to describe various levels of retreating from technology akin to how Thoreau extolled the virtues of retreating from social contact and leading a quieter life at Walden Pond. Rao argues that the value of Waldenponding is overrated and that extreme Waldenponding is even somewhat immoral. Rao sees online intellectual life as a form of supercomputer, an intellectual ecosystem that produces new knowledge and intellectual discourse. He encourages all of us to contribute to that intellectual ecosystem even when it can mean losing credit for some of our ideas and potentially some of our uniqueness.

Intro. [Recording date: September 13, 2019.]

Russ Roberts: Today is September, 13 2019 and my guest is writer and management consultant, Venkatesh Rao, founder and Editor-in-Chief of Ribbonfarm. Our topic for today is a piece from his newsletter about the seductive nature of our devices and social media and it is called "Against Waldenponding." "Against Waldenponding." Venkat, welcome to EconTalk.

Venkatesh Rao: Great to be here, Russ. Thanks for having me on.

Russ Roberts: So what do you mean by Waldenponding? Which is a phrase--I don't think it's going to catch on, but I loved it.

Venkatesh Rao: I don't know about that. I think it's already caught on, at least in my circles. I did a little Twitter poll and one-third of the people in my feed had heard of it from me, but a bunch of people had heard it not from me. So that's a good measure of inception[?] and the zeitgeist. But yeah, it started, like most things do with me these days--I don't know--a gentle insult to troll some of my friends in tech who I think act a little too, I don't know, solemn, [?self-?] serious about the threat of digital devices hacking our brains. So it started out as an insult. Then I did a little Twitter thread on it and realized I meant it more seriously than I was admitting to myself. Then it turned into a newsletter. Then I did another for part two. And since then I've been sort of exploring the concept all over the place in Twitter and other places.

So the basic idea is: You've got this trend of people advocating some sort of retreat from digital media, and of course Waldenponding is a reference to Thoreau's Walden. So, the idea of not necessarily literally retreating to a log cabin in the woods to meditate--though a lot of people actually do some literal version of that--but somewhere on the spectrum of being very online to being completely offline by Waldenpond, any measure of retreat along that axis is what I call Waldenponding. And the pieces I have been sort of developing as sort of a critical pieces advocating against that. There, I argue that Waldenponding is actually a bad thing and it's sort of a misframing of a problem. It's the wrong response to the, whatever is going on there; and there's more effective ways of engaging with digital technology.

Russ Roberts: Yeah. I want to read an excerpt from your, I'm going to call it an essay. It's a set of bullet points really. A numbered set of points that tie together. But you say "The crude caricature"--you're talking about Waldenponding:

The crude caricature is "smash your smart phone and go live in a log cabin to reclaim your attention and your life from being hacked by evil social media platforms." It is less of a caricature than you might think. At an event I was just at, the opening keynote featured a guy who's literally done just that, and I know at least half a dozen people who have executed a Hard Waldenponding plan with varying degrees of literal fidelity. A great many more have implemented a sort of Soft Waldenponding, marked by digital retreat (aided by various amputation tools that sever or loosen your connection to digital prosthetics), but no log cabin.

So you're not literally against stepping back from some technology sometimes, we should get that straight right from the beginning.

Venkatesh Rao: Yeah, absolutely. So it's almost a critique of what you might say has become a religious doctrine around what's really just a practical matter of, on the one hand engineering design evolution on the part of tech companies, and on the part of users just getting used to a new medium and sort of swinging back and forth on the pendulum a few times before finding sort of a happy medium. And I go back to the history of technologies, and it happens with boring predictability: that you have radio and you have a generation complaining that radio is ruining our brains. You have TV, people complaining that TV is ruining our brains. You have video games, you have same complaints, right?

And it goes back to Plato and Phaedrus and him talking about writing, having the same problem of: you are atrophying your memory by using this weird new medium called writing to preserve your thoughts. So the complaint pattern is not new. Neither is this sort of advocacy of retreat. And it's not that the, those who advocate the retreat are unaware of this long history. So Nick Carr, who I think inaugurated this particular trend of when he wrote The Shallows almost a decade ago, he actually quotes Plato and Phaedrus and says, "All right, still this time it's different. Google is making us stupid." So they're aware of the tradition, but somehow they think it's different this time, which is sort of a common pattern in these things.

So, I would say when you approach this as a practical matter, not as a religious one, it's actually not that hard. It's--there are features available. You can put your phone into dark mode. You can build habits around other information consumption. The diagram I included in my thread has a little turnpike-type visualization of, on the one hand you have the X axis of increasing latency of information consumption. And on the Y axis you have the abstraction with which you consume information. So, you might have something like a book that's written several years after something important has happened. So it's several years lagging. But because it's able to go deep and analyze at higher levels of abstraction, it goes up on the Y axis as well. So that's one extreme.

And on the other extreme, you have a real life sense of what's going on on Twitter today and life sense of sophisticated conversations happening. So it's not all shared posting. So if you're able to go up and down the turnpike to suit your needs, you will sort of meet your informational needs. And I think what ends up happening when these people react against people doing just that, making their own decisions on where to be along that axis and how much attention to allocate on each part, they make the mistake of--I think they make three mistakes. The first is they overestimate their own agency as designers of the mechanisms. So you have, for example, Tristan Harris and Nir Eyal--I don't know how to say his name--but both began their careers as actual designers of web technology--

Russ Roberts: Yeah, that's, by the way, that's Nir Eyal. And he's coming to EconTalk in a couple months. Carry on.

Venkatesh Rao: Absolutely. You should ask him about this stuff. And I think both are great people, very thoughtful people. They've seen the design side of this stuff. They've actually worked on hacking attention-type technologies with tech companies. And then they've kind of had almost like a finding-religion moment where they've gone to the other side and sort of in their mind recognized sort of the dark side of this technology. And, they're now in this sort of evangelical mode where some of it almost sounds like an AA [Alcoholics Anonymouse] program where it's like you have to admit you're powerless and the godlike technology has hacked your attention and you have to admit that there's a higher power and you're powerless. I get a very AA vibe from it.

And I think so that's one mistake they make. Just because they've been involved in the design of this sort of attention-manipulation technologies, they overestimate the actual importance of that element of the puzzle.

The second thing they do is they underestimate the actual level of agency we, as users, bring to our information consumption choices. And I don't think that they actually stop to think too hard about the, what I think is the null hypothesis here, which is that if I'm spending say 50% of my time shit-posting on Twitter, 30% writing random little threads on newsletters and only say, 5%, working on "big, serious, solemn" papers and books, that's actually an attention allocation I might want. If I'm watching five hours of TV a day, that's an attention allocation I might want. So I think they underestimate the degree to which there is actually conscious agency here and they attribute too much to the evil UI [User Interface] designers.

And the third thing that I think is part of their big mistake is: they don't realize the extent to which the behaviors we are now experimenting with across the board are actually a response to a much bigger thing. Namely, the information environment has in fact radically shifted. So it's not just a matter of like, you know, clever UI designers are designing infinite scrolling, patterns with sub-microsecond insertions into the attention loop. It is actually, genuinely the case that several orders of magnitude more information has come online, and our old ways of processing information that were sort of evolved in scarcity environments, they just don't work anymore. So everything we are trying, from being like, you know, gonzo present in live Twitter feeds all the way to the other end where you retreat to a log cabin and only read ancient Greek classics--this entire spectrum of experimentation represents very useful and important evolutionary adaptations experiments. And you kind of have to let these things run and figure out what works.

10:33

Russ Roberts: So, a part of that--let me try to summarize that in some of the ways we've been talking about these topics here recently on EconTalk. So, one issue is this addictive question; and you're suggesting that some of that is overrated in terms of how addictive they can make it. And the second is, we have some control over it obviously. I think the question on that is, is whether we get control of it by taking it off our smartphone--a particular app that we have trouble not going to all the time--versus, say, regulating these companies. And listeners know I'm a big fan of letting cultural response to this happen. And you're making the, I think very relevant, point that this is such an early change, the idea that we're going to just stay as we are in how we interact with this technology is absurd. We're going to change in all kinds of ways and we need some time to do that. I think that's very wise.

The deeper point, of course, also you make is that people enjoy these things. We like these things. It's fun. It's not addiction: that's just a word to vilify it and it's a puritanical concept to make it sound wicked or evil.

The third point, which I would also react to, about longer, deeper dives in deeper ideas: The question is whether that seems to have gotten harder. I know for me, I'm 64 and maybe I'm just getting older, but my ability to sit with a text without interrupting it, with email checking, Twitter checking and other types of distraction seems to have changed. Now, that could be because I haven't reacted correctly or fully to this new information stream. It could be, though, that there is something here to be concerned about. The question is what should we do about that concern?

And I think there's a final point I want to add onto that you make I think is the real, in many ways the punchline: We have this cornucopia, this incredible perfusion of stimulus. Some of it is very superficial and just a little dopamine hit of 'I got another follower.' Some of it as superficial as you point out, because it's gossip about somebody's habits online. They're up there with some shortcoming that people want to wave around. That feels a lot like a waste of time. But, if we're careful, that's not the way we spend most of our time on Twitter. It's not the way we spend most of our time on social media. It's not the way we spend most of our time online. There's such extraordinary riches up and down the line of depth versus superficial, which is one of the ways of thinking of the axis that you're describing.

And it's a glorious time to be alive. You know, I think moaning and complaining about how horrible it is, it's a form of virtue signaling, obviously. It's part of--you allude to that in various point, times in your essay. But I think the right way to think about this is: As individuals, let's make a choice. Here we have this unbelievable menu. Yes, there's some really fattening, unhealthy things down at this part of the buffet. But this other part of the buffett--and some of that's, it's fun. You can have an ice cream cone now and then. You don't want to eat it all day, but the rest of the time, you've got this extraordinary profusion of ideas and opportunities to learn and explore. And just the question is: How do we navigate that?

Venkatesh Rao: So I want to react to a couple of things you said because, the way you framed your response to the trends so far is almost--it's an apologist's mode of--it overemphasizes actually the very criticisms that drive Waldenponding, which I think are actually wrong. So if you actually look at the things they're recommending--so, take for example, academic papers or academic books and I come from the academic world, same as you. I spent several years in my Ph.D. and postdoc research diving into archival journals, technical textbooks. And my background is in mechanical and aerospace engineering. And it might not be as bad as say, social psychology, but honestly, 90% of all papers and technical materials I read was junk. And I hated it.

And my own papers--I'm not going to spend my career as anything great. But I think I was an okay researcher. I got maybe a few citations for the few papers I wrote while I was in academic research. But when I moved over to the blogosphere, it's so much a richer environment, and the conversation gets smarter and better so much faster. So, my best blog posts, they've gotten thousands and thousands of reactions and wonderful conversations have come out that. Things that never happened with my academic work, which kind of languish in obscurity. And most academic work, by the way, deserves to languish in obscurity. You'll see this comment a lot in sort of hard line, 'Twitter is good'-people, which I include myself in. Where you'd say things like, 'That book should be a blog post at best and the heated blog post should just be a Twitter thread.'

And this assessment that we are all coming to in my corner of the discourse is because we're starting to see that the appearance and formal structure of depth does not equal actual depth. So the, what I think of as the traditional literary industrial complex of academia, TED talks, very high gravitas, newspaper op-eds and stuff, it has the form and structure of depth. You look at it and you think, 'Hey, this should be good, deep stuff.' But it's not. I mean, you look at the New York Times op-ed section--it's like warmed over, recycled one-week-late clickbaiting that's actually picking up where Twitter leaves off. And the original conversation on Twitter ends up being, like higher signal, lower noise, more interesting and more current than the NewYork op-ed version of it. You look at half the books that come out--they're the same.

So I want to sort of point that out that so this is not a both sides-ist argument. This is actually a comment on humanity. Humans come in grades of, like, sophistication, shallowness, superficiality of interests, depth of interests. And you will find people in every medium who are going deep and doing, like, profoundly interesting things, exploring information spaces. And you will find 90% of people using whatever form the medium offers to produce honestly, bullshit.

17:33

Russ Roberts: Yeah, well--Venkat, I just want to react to that for a sec because I think you're onto something there. The part that--I know you're critiquing my critique a little bit--but, the part I want to really agree with is that a lot of this worry about social media is a form of condescension. It's basically, 'Well, I know how to handle it, of course. I'm sophisticated. I'm deep. I'm thoughtful. It's them, the masses, the rest of the folks. They need help. They need to be controlled because they can't control themselves.' There is a definite paternalism there that I do not like; and I want to make it clear that I don't embrace that.

Venkatesh Rao: Absolutely. There's several dimensions to this. So there's, the one I was going after is almost like foreign structure conflation in understanding media. You're pointing out the sort of elite-versus-commoner relationship of condescension and sort of.

Actually, riffing a little bit more on that, that's been a sort of ongoing theme for about 20 years in conversations about digital media. Right? I mean, you had Surowiecki with his Wisdom of Crowds book. I think that was 2002. So we've been having this conversation for at least a couple of decades, and we now know a lot more. I mean, this is an economics podcast and to a large extent what we're talking about really is in some sense, efficiency and intelligence of information markets. Right? And, 'wisdom of crowds' is a thing. There are times when crowds can act stupid and insane where they uncritically just repeat each other.

But there's other times when crowds are actually constituted of individuals who bring a lot of private knowledge and they're kind of adding a lot of intelligence, and mechanisms sort of coordinate and wire that information together. And a larger emergent intelligence appears.

And we are very familiar with one mechanism by which this happens, namely the economic markets, which is the focus of your world. But I think we are just seeing the emergence of an entirely different mechanism that works on the same principles. And I've written quite a bit about this as well, both in the original thread and in subsequent tweets and newsletters. But I think of this as what I call the graph mind. You can call it the high brain. I also think of it as the global social computer in the cloud.

But, the idea is that this is an extraordinarily powerful computing and intelligence-extracting mechanism that functions something like a market. It's a big distributed computer. But to participate in it, you have to be willing to let your individuality be subsumed in the larger conversation.

So, when you're on Twitter and bantering back and forth with a bunch of other smart people, what you say and what you do and the memes and the clever coinages you come up with--that matters. But who you are doesn't. So this is why one of my metrics of success for myself as a blogger and very online person is, there's nothing better than seeing a meme that you helped create, sort of propagate through the wilderness of social media and nobody knows where it came from. I'm often like really pleased when that happens.

And I've done that a few times. Like one of the coinages I have been credited with is the phrase 'premium mediocre,' which comes from an article I wrote called "The Premium Mediocre Life of Maya Millennial." That blog was a viral hit; a lot of people appreciated it. But what I loved even more was: as that idea percolated through the zeitgeist, through the global social computer in the cloud, and I do Twitter searches, a lot of people are now starting to use it in roughly the way I intended in coining it, and have no idea where it came from. And it's lovely. It's like I have added a small, I don't know, a vitamin pill of intelligence to the discourse, and it's hopefully making the competition and processing of information a little bit more efficient. So, my reaction to this is both surprise and delight at being able to do this.

But for a lot of people, the reaction when this happens is utter dismay. They feel they've been appropriated; they feel their best thinking has been diluted and leaked out into the wilderness rather than captured and monetized.

And I think that comes from the sense of what I've been calling 'fear of being ordinary.' So you've got 'fear of missing out,' which is a syndrome we sometimes think of people like myself having, which is we're online all the time and are afraid we'll miss some exciting new thing that happens. But fear of being ordinary is when you let yourself be that online sort of gonzo present in social media, you kind of lose your individuality and you become just part of this computational soup. And great things come out of the computational soup, but chances are you're not going to get what you think of is the appropriate level of credit for that. So Waldenponding in one sense is a retreat to reclaim your individuality.

So, I have been playing around with metaphors like: you're doing an attention stock buyback and shrinking sort of your presence even at the expense of doing less in the world; You claim more credits for what you do in fact do. So there's a fear of being ordinary. You want to live in a domain where you can claim authorial credit--authorship for the ideas you come up with. You want to be a legible part of a tradition you want to associate yourself with. Like, I looked up your work and you're--what is it?--a fourth generation Chicago school economist, right? And that's a well known legible tradition. You can draw genealogy of generations of economists who worked on a set of ideas and you can trace the descent of ideas.

So that's one kind of idea space where you can kind of trace the provenance of ideas. And that's great. And it's a kind of idea space we are very comfortable being in. It has a calculus of merit and credit and appreciation and advancement and rewards. But on the other hand, you have this great new thing coming up. It can compute answers to questions that are much more complex and subtle than we could ever compute with either the academic tradition or the market tradition or the journalistic tradition. And we have to get used to working in that mode. So my reaction to this is delight; but for a lot of people it's fear of being ordinary, fear of sort of having their individuality lost, even if the output is extraordinarily enlightened insights.

24:11

Russ Roberts: Yeah. So, I'll just add a couple things to that. I think that's a very deep thought actually. And I liked--you talked about the essay FOMO and FOBO--Fear of Missing Out and Fear of Being Ordinary. And my first thought was, when I read that was, 'Well, I'm not really afraid of being ordinary. I have my followers on Twitter. They see what I write. My name's attached to it.'

But you're making a deeper point. I want to try to, let me try to expand on it a little bit. So, somebody gave me your name or I saw a reference to something you wrote on Ribbonfarm, maybe two years ago. And I looked at it, and I thought, 'You know, I'm not sure that's going to make a good EconTalk, but I wish it did. It's interesting, but I'm going to leave it alone.' I put it down and I forgot about you. And then, somewhere along the line, somehow--I don't know how--this Waldenponding piece got referenced to me.

I didn't see you in the hall and say, 'What have you written lately?' and you said, 'Oh, You'll like this.' Somehow, and my wife always says, 'How'd you find out about X?' I always say, 'How do I know?' I don't know how to answer that. Twitter, email, suggestions. I get emails from listeners. So, let's pretend somebody actually sent this to me. It's possible. I've forgotten. I haven't keep track of it. So it's a nice idea to say, 'My guest today is Venkatesh Rao and I want to thank so-and-so for suggesting it.' I've forgotten that.

Worse, I have a quote in my Adam Smith book that starts off 'The universe is full of dots.' And I'm not going to quote it verbatim here, but gist of the quote is: the secret is not what you can do by connecting the dots. The real question is why did you leave out all the other dots you could have included? It's a deep and beautiful way to talk about cherry picking. And people think I said that, because it's in my book; it gets quoted on Twitter all the time. I didn't say it. Sam Thomsen, who I don't know; but I like to point it out. Because it's such a wonderful quote, I like to give him credit.

But as you're pointing out now, you can argue that it's really not important who gets the credit. Now, our egos want the credit. And you could argue as an economist--I'm not going to--that by giving credit, we encourage people to look for more ideas. I think that's kind of silly. I don't think that's why we're generating ideas and clever thoughts. Some of it it's ego. Some of it it's just the part of being human and the delight we get in wordplay.

So Waldenponding--I don't think you sat around saying, 'This is going to make me more money. I'm going to get to be on more media and I'm going to be able to charge more when I speak.' You just enjoyed the phrase. You thought of it. It was a moment of eureka.

But the other point I want to make--and I think this, to come back to your, this idea of the fear of being ordinary--I think there's a tribalism and an identity issue here. So, I'm much less of a Chicago economist than I was when I came out of graduate school. I've sort of shucked off some of that identity. It's kind of a, more like my town than where I live now. And I kind of like that. I'm proud of it because it is this heritage and tradition; and I kind of like that I've moved away. I've made my own distance from it. But I have a new identity. I have a new set of clothes, a new set of style.

And I think what you're suggesting is, is that when you we are on the internet, when we're in these social media clouds and soups and stews, and we have all these wonderful words to try to capture this emergent phenomenon called the wisdom of network conversation--when I'm in that, I kind of don't have an identity. And I think that's your point. I don't have that tribal feeling. And I do think--although I could have my tribes within it, of course: I can't help myself there. I tend to find tribes on my social media, and I think that's a human impulse we have. But ultimately, I'm submerged in the tribe. I'm submerged in Twitter.

And what you're suggesting--and I'm going to try it out and see what you think--kind of suggesting: 'Okay, Twitter is--there's some really bad neighborhoods in Twitter. And there's some high rise apartments that look really beautiful, but once you get inside them, they're not so great. But there's also this wonderful back and forth. There's this neighborhood bar, that's virtual, where I can go hang out. And it's--unlike the bar in "Cheers," nobody knows your name. They know it literally because they see what your Twitter handle is. But, you're creating something.'

And I think the idea that that is something noble, that that is something human, that that is something that's actually productive even, is--it's a novel idea. I think most of us think of it as just entertainment. And that's totally wrong. And I think one of your many insights here is that, you're actually participating in something quite grand that you're not even probably aware of, as is true of any emergent phenomena. We always use the ant and the ant colony. The ant knows nothing about the purpose of the ant colony. It just has this very narrow task of, say, dropping pheromones for other ants to follow to the trail of where the food is. They don't realize what the consequences are, don't think about it. So here we are, just kind of fooling around, yelling. Got my megaphone--it's a very small megaphone--on these social media platforms. And, as we all talk together, we create something unique.

So I think it's a really beautiful idea and it's not an easy idea to sell, but I like it. And I think the fear of being ordinary, the FOBO worry, that I'll be submerged in this soup and only be a virtual cog of some sort. is part of what's going on here.

Venkatesh Rao: Yeah, and you're right. It's one of those things that I think a lot of us are realizing at the same time, that there's something much deeper going on.

And I want to sort of go back to a couple of things you said, like, think of the idea of like the dots you didn't connect or the fact that I pegged you as a Chicago school economist and you clarified that you've kind of drifted off that. So a lot of this idea of, like, ego-validating narrative construction that we think of as the history of an intellectual tradition or tradition of ideas--it's pure myth-making. It's just a pretty story we tell ourselves about what actually happened. It's a narrative on top of a lot of phenomenology. And, arguably it's a false sense of sort of historical clarity on top of a tradition that was never not murky. So Twitter has just made it impossible for us to lie about the truth of our intellectual tradition and histories. You might credit one person with sort of taking you down a bunny trail. You don't know about the six other people who are involved in the soup, and you just could not see the soup before. Now you can see the soup. You can see every connection that the soup is making.

So that's one point to keep in mind: that it was always false. It's not that it became false now, but the soup has always been the actual foundation of the discourse.

Another interesting idea is, you've got the famous Harry Truman quote--what is it? --'It's amazing what's possible when you don't care who gets the credit'?

Russ Roberts: Yeah. Well, it's a good example because Harry Truman didn't say that.

Venkatesh Rao: Exactly.

Russ Roberts: It's gets attributed to Ronald Reagan who certainly--if Harry Truman said it, it probably didn't start with Ronald Reagan. Although it's a deep and obvious truth. So it could have been thought of by more than one person.

As far as I know, the first example that I know of the coining[?] is in David McCullough's book on the Panama Canal. The engineer who built the canal said that; and I'm blanking on his name, which is perfect for this conversation, right? I'm not giving him the credit. I'm going to confuse him with the guy who built the Brooklyn Bridge. But the guy who built the Panama Canal, which took an enormous team of human beings in all different capacities said that, I think at least before Harry Truman. Carry on.

Venkatesh Rao: So that's actually a wonderful example, and it's great that it kind of organically emerged in our conversation [?inaudible 00:32:26]. And interestingly, that phenomenon has a name. Have you heard of Stigler's Law of Eponymy?

Russ Roberts: Of course. He was on my--

Venkatesh Rao: He didn't come up with that.

Russ Roberts: He was on my Committee, and I actually--my Ph.D Committee. But it's George Stigler we're talking about. And it's funny that you mention it because it crossed my mind about six minutes ago and I thought, 'Should I bring that up? Nah, I'll leave it alone.' Explain what it is.

Venkatesh Rao: I think it's perfectly pertinent and it's wonderful that Stigler's Law of Eponymy was not actually coined by Stigler. And it's--you see this sort of thing all over the place. Like, these days when I do actually write a serious longer essay or book chapter and I actually do try to go and look for the provenance of various quotes, I'm amazed at how often that I find, like, True Quote Investigator or one of those sites, just how deep the bunny trail behind every false-attributed quote goes. It's like versions and versions and versions and in the end it gets lost in some murky thing 100 years ago. And I love that, because it tells me that books written 50, 60 years ago where you couldn't do this kind of research as easily are likely absolutely chock full of misattribution. So it's like rotten all the way through, the citational sort of web there. So it's kind of good that we're backing off from that.

Russ Roberts: But describe--you say what it is, Stigler's Law of Eponymy. It's: Things named after people weren't discovered by them.

Venkatesh Rao: Exactly. And I wouldn't sort of generalize that to all ideas. So, not just name things like children's or ideas, just in general. Like take Waldenponding. I know I thought of it independently, but I haven't actually done the research to see, like, in the 100-plus years since Thoreau, whether somebody else came up with that kind of satirical [?]--

34:14

Russ Roberts: Well, it's also possible that someone else thought of it; you saw it, didn't notice it; and it somehow rose in your brand. That happens to me with other people's work; but it happens to me with my own work. I think of what I think is a novel idea, and I thought of it already, but I forgot about it.

Venkatesh Rao: Yep. So all of this, I think what we're both getting at is the absolute richness of thought and intelligence-mining that can come up if you sort of let your identity, not necessarily be dissolved--it's not like we're all joining Twitter as a cult--but sort of set it on the side. It's not like you're losing your identity. You're just not using it at the moment. And you're diving in. So much is possible. And, when you look at the opposite of vector that a lot of people are encouraging us to go on, which is Waldenponding--which ironically, by the way, the biggest evangelists are former technologists who had a hand in designing that end. And this is like a historical pattern. The biggest evangelist for religion are the ones who left the opposing religion. Right? And it's when you've talked to--

Russ Roberts: Sure. More Catholic than the Pope. That's where it comes--that's what that expression is about. Right? The convert is more Catholic than the Pope. It's a real thing.

Venkatesh Rao: And you see, when you talk to, like, regular people who are not part of the Silicon Valley tech economy like we are, they're actually not as--I don't know--they don't take this as seriously. They're just rolling with it and figuring it out as they go along. And most of them are doing a reasonably good job.

Now, this doesn't mean there aren't elements of what they're doing that aren't valuable. I do think, whereas the overall shaming campaign of shaming the tech companies into like broad manifesto-ish stuff that's, like, not helpful. There may be specific ideas of, 'All right, turn off this dark pattern; have this ability to clear dark mode.'

All those are maybe good, but I do want to point out one exception to this general critique, which is: when you have these large, bottom-up platforms of, like, participatory conversations, and something like national cybersecurity agency with like very trained operatives gets in and they are running the equal end of information special ops and misinformation campaigns and things like that, that's something that you do have to kind of take seriously and as a special case of what's happening.

So, hacking of election discourses and things like that is what I'm getting at. So there, yeah. But that's a very special case and that's not something the general Waldenponding, [?] retreat, works on. But the reason I'm bringing that up is if you look at this conversation we've been having it for about 15, 20 years--Nick Carr, Cal Newport on Deep Work, all that stuff. But it got particularly acute in the last three or four years for a couple of unrelated reasons. One is, you've got all this political-grade [?] and just the general PTSD [Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder] of being online at a toxic time. And a lot of that is caused very deliberately by focused bad actors. So, that's one thing that's getting conflated. And the other is that whether it's caused by Russian spies or, you know, generally a lot of toxic baggage being aired, part of the retreat is a pattern of healing rather than actual adaptation to a new information environment. And this, I think, is actually a legitimate thing. So, if you are, say, in, particularly in the politics part of Twitter and you're a good fit and you've been enjoying being part of the big soup computer since before 2016, but in 2016, it just got a little too toxic and you retreated--I think that's a good thing. That's a kind of information-processing hygiene that we all have to develop. We have to learn to retreat when the psychological stress is too much and then go back in when we've kind of recovered and healed a bit. So, managing your sort of emotional reactions to the discourse is actually important.

But this again I would argue is just more intense and democratic right now. But it's always been the case. Like you could have been in an academic seminar 30 years ago where a rude older faculty member sort of said something rude and you had to go away and go on a vacation to recover from the trauma, right?

Russ Roberts: Yeah. You got beat up. Yeah.

Venkatesh Rao: It's a learning process.

38:32

Russ Roberts: I want to give an example of that. And then I want to challenge your--might want to draw the boundary in a different place. So, I'm pretty active on Twitter. Sometimes I worry I'm too active. I do think if I'm not careful, I'm down in the bottom left-hand corner of your diagram on small-minded things--it's more like gossip rather than the deep exchange of ideas. And I recently--it's just it's bizarre, but it took me this long to have this cultural response--I recently started blocking people. And I feel bad--which is funny. Somebody comes online, who follows me on Twitter, somebody tweets; they are nasty. Potentially sometimes antisemitic. They are, at a minimum, rude. And the thing they do that starts to bother me so much that I now put it in my profile on Twitter is: they assume the worst about me and don't bother finding out what I actually think or say.

Russ Roberts: And I just block them. I want to say it's in my profile: I say I now block people who do that. And at first, I thought, like, 'It makes me comfortable.' But what it's really like is a guy is, you're out in your yard and a guy comes down the street, his windows are down in his car and he yells some antisemitic or grotesque insult to you. And it's one thing to say, 'Well, just don't listen to it.' But that's hard to do. It's really hard to do. It's much better just to say, 'I'm going to go inside now. I'm not going to let this guy bug me. I'm not going to let him get at me.' And so now I just block him; and it's fantastic. It is a way to cope with this emotional part of this that I think we're really unprepared for it.

The other example, the other metaphor I like for this--and you can steal this, thank God, and use it in your own: pretend you thought of it--is, to me, Twitter is like somebody putting a bumper sticker on my car. Right? I'm driving down the street. All of a sudden somebody slaps a bumper sticker on my car about my identity or myself. And it's like, 'No, no, no. I get to decide what bumper sticker goes on my car.' And I think that's the dark side of Twitter. And I just block people who put bumper stickers on my car that aren't really describing what kind of person I am. Okay. So, you want to say something: Go ahead.

Venkatesh Rao: Oh, yeah: I think that's a very important point. And I actually made this point in a couple of newsletters ago: that social media has an addictive bias. You're encouraged to acquire followers, post more and more. And it has very few subtracting mechanisms like blocking and muting. And the ones that we do have are primitive and kind of a nuclear option.

So, I would actually state your point in an even stronger form. I also initially did not like blocking because it seemed uncivil; and I think I had the wrong calibration of what civility is. But I've since gone beyond like just blocking rude people or people who are just very objectionably ideologically too far from me, and simply blocking anybody with whom I have too much problem just getting through and it's simply not worth the trouble.

So, I love Jeff Bezos's line that Amazon is willing to be misunderstood for long periods of time. So, I adopt that attitude in my role in places like Twitter, which is: I am willing to be misunderstood for long periods of time. I'm part of some very productive social media, hive-mind competitions, and that I like and I want to be there and I want to be part of that conversation. But other conversations, things I might say very casually and quickly without, like, trying to be very clearly understood by people who don't know me, I am going to be misunderstood. And I'm okay with that. And quite often there's going to be an asymmetry on the part of my relationship with people who I end up confusing. So, I might have very little interest in making sure somebody else understands me correctly, but they might have a very intense interest in making sure they understand me correctly.

And often they get annoyingly, almost jokingly, where they're like constantly dogging me to self-clarify, add detail. And I'm like, 'Sorry, this is not a useful part of a conversation for me and I'm not doing.' So, this is like a market. It's ultimately selfish individual motives. 'I'm not being altruistic here. I'm participating in conversations that are productive for me as well. And if it's not, and you're being a little too annoying, I'm going to mute or block you.' So I've done that multiple times and I become very liberal with that and it's almost become like, it's not a personal thing any more. And most of my blocks and mutes are in fact not about civility at all any more. I would say eight out of 10 of them are, 'You're just being annoying. The conversational gap between our respective computational processes in this global social computer are just too far apart. Let's not bother. It's just not worth trying to cross-pollinate intelligence across these two conversations.'

So that's my reaction. But another sort of related phenomenon I want to point out is, I think of the most productive conversations in places like Twitter as ones that are not tribal. That don't degenerate into tribal derping. So, for me it's like confirmation and disconfirmation are the two least useful things to do on Twitter. The most useful thing is to actually find a new dimension and vector of a conversation that's neither confirmatory nor dis-confirmatory. And a lot of people don't like that. They are in such strong, you know, beef-only mode or psychology or are constantly beefing along tribal lines, all they're interested in is confirmation and dis-confirmation. And that's just not interesting because it's a kind of computation that can be run on, like, the New York Times op-ed section. It's a primitive kind of discourse. I'm just not interested. I'm interested in the more sophisticated discourses that Twitter is capable of.

Russ Roberts: What we need is a website where there would be a microphone; you would say something like 'I like mushroom pizza,' and there would be an enormous roar of like a football stadium size crowd. You know, so that you can get fix of ego and tribal sentiment. You could have different kinds. When you say, 'I don't like so-and-so,' some political figure, the crowd would not just roar, but angrily roar and sound violent. Anyway.

Venkatesh Rao: I think you describe Instagram.

Russ Roberts: Instagram. I'm not much of an Instagrammer, so I can't fully respond to that.

45:04

Russ Roberts: I want to ask you a different question. I think there are two places where I disagree with you in a more fundamental way. And I'll let you react to this. So the first one is, we've never met. You and I have never met. I have an instinctive liking for you based on the way you write and your flamboyant style. The fact that you have all kinds of insights--some of which I don't understand, by the way. Which is fun. That's a plus. That's feature, not a bug. Right? So I've read a few of your pieces before and I like them a lot. So we could imagine in the old days you'd have an article in a magazine, and I would enjoy that, and I would write you a letter. And I would say, 'Dear Mr. Rao, I really enjoyed your piece on Waldenponding. I found it very thoughtful.'

And then I might say something like, 'I wrote a piece that's related to that you might enjoy, if your library has it, blah blah blah.' So that's a 1950s, 1970s interaction. And you'd get that letter to be fun. My father used to write poets and other people, other authors whose work he liked, and they would often write back. Here's a letter from Robert Penn Warren, which shocked me that Robert Penn Warren bothered to respond to my dad--who's in a different part in the soup. But he had time and was either flattered or thought it was important--for whatever reason he responded. It was really sweet. So that's the old style.

Now, today, you and I could have a Twitter friendship. We could go back and forth on Twitter. We haven't, I don't think, much. I did just before an hour or two before the conversation: I tweeted an article about Thoreau and Walden that you, I saw you liked that. I thought, 'That's nice. He's paying attention. That's good. And maybe he'll read it before we do this interview. It's by Kathryn Schulz--and if we don't get to talk about it, we'll put a link up to it--where she explains Thoreau is a wicked and despicable person and a hypocrite. And the whole Waldenponding thing is nonsense.' But it's a great piece, by the way. Very thoughtful and entertaining and written with great, fervent style as Kathryn Schulz often does. So I just mentioned that in passing

But, we could've responded. Instead of having you on EconTalk, we could have gone back and forth on Twitter. But now we got to a new level. We're having an actual conversation, audio. We video-Skyped for a minute when we started this and we could see each other.

And then the fourth level--this is what I want to focus on. The next level would be, the next time I'm in Seattle or you're in the Washington D.C. area, we could sit down and have coffee, and that would be kind of fun just to see each other face to face. But the real, I think the more important thing would be if we could have coffee regularly--and I have friends I have coffee with regularly--a different type of conversation emerges. A different type of human experience emerges. Some of it, by the way, is overrated. Some of it is--Tyler Cowen recently defended social media versus parties. Parties are face-to-face but often loud, empty and superficial. And he's got something to say there. But, at the same time, I don't think we want to underrate deep human face-to-face connection. And I do think that the digital revolution has challenged that. And, there is a temptation to stay in my room all day, flicking through Twitter if I'm not careful. So you didn't mention anything like that. Do you want to say anything about that?

Venkatesh Rao: Oh, absolutely. I think that's because you have, most of your life still in traditional institutions. I believe you are at Hoover. So right now, by the way, I'm not in Seattle: I'm in Los Angeles on a fellowship at the Berggruen Institute, but I've spent much of the last 10 years out in the wild, so to speak. And a lot of what you describe, for me it has happened a lot more intensely out here in the social media wild than it ever did in my institutional settings. So, for four years before I became a free agent consultant blogger, so 2006-2011, I was working at Xerox in their research group and I had like hallway interactions. And before that I was in academia for almost a decade, and I would have the same kind of hallway interactions and extended frequent coffee or lunch dates with colleagues and coworkers.

So I had all that. In fact, there used to be a law called the 50-Foot Law, which was most collaboration happens within 50 feet. This is pre-internet. And one of the first things I ever wrote about Twitter, when I first saw Twitter--this was 2007 or 2008, one of my earliest blog posts about Twitter was the 50-Foot Rule has been sort of refactored online, and now your 50-foot zone is actually global. So now you have to reimagine that 50-foot zone as the zone of what you can think of as intimate conversations on Twitter that are likely to escalate into long, extended relationships that will actually get as intimate as physical distance and geography allows. So there are people who've literally gotten married off Twitter. So that's an extreme case.

But yeah, over the last 10, 15 years, when I look back, I started a conference around my blog. I've had a huge number of wonderful friendships and collaborations emerge from it. There's people I meet as regularly as I can. There's Facebook groups, slacks[?], extended email threads, lots of consulting gigs have come out of this. So I would say, for my sort of extra institutional feral lifestyle for the last decade, the kind of things you say are valuable and precious about the old institutional life, I've experienced them about two x, three x more than I ever did in institutional life. So I think the reason people don't realize this is they still have enough invested in the old institutional life that they have no need to kind of develop it in the social media world. And what ends up happening if you're forced to do that is you discover that it's possible to do that stuff in a lot more deep way and a lot more flexible way. And it's only a question of how imaginative you are and how much you actually want it.

51:18

Russ Roberts: So I think if Nick Carr--whose book, I apologize to Mr. Carr, I have not read--as you say, I think you alluded to earlier, I think he's the guy who said Google is ruining your brain. And he did have a book called The Shallows. I do remember that. What he might respond--and I'm going to disagree with him after I give his fake response, and then you can see if you agree with either of us. You might say, 'Okay, that's all nice. But the truth is, is that our face-to-face interactions have deteriorated as the internet has arisen because now our attention span is shorter. We might be face to face, but we're more likely to check our phone, respond to a text, flick through Twitter, find it hard to stay focused on a person face to face because I want to get back to my email and back to my Twitterverse.'

And what I'm going to disagree with him, and I'm going to use your metaphor: I think that there's some truth to it, by the way. I don't think it's absurd. I think that it is harder for people to sit still at dinner. And we have a rule in our house: we don't answer the phone or look at our phones during meals. I think those are some good rules. I think that's okay. But I think there's a range of face-to-face, a range of physical interaction. You've inspired me: we'll call it--I'm sure there's a cleverer version--brick and mortaring. As a human, I need to get a pun on 'brick,' like friend and mortaring. We'll figure it out later.

But, I have lots of face-to-face interactions that are superficial and somewhat sterile. And then we have really deep ones. We have really extraordinary connections we make with people online and then also face to face. And I don't think we've lost those. I don't think we've lost the ability to have the deep ones. And it's like your continuum of sort of gossipy superficial conversation down in the left-hand corner, and up in the right-hand corner is a profound exchange of ideas that changes the way you look at the world, that connects you to another human being in a way that creates a great emotional reward and delight.

And I think those, if I could take the most charitable view of the internet, is that--and I can say this as the host of EconTalk--I've met more interesting people in the last 10 years face to face, certainly online, certainly over interviewing people. That's been an amazing gift and privilege to be able to do that. But the face-to-face times that I interact with people are still deeply moving and profound. And as you say, I think you're right. I think I have more of them. I have exposure to more interesting people than I did in a world where I'd have that 50-Foot Rule and only interact with the people on my corridor.

Venkatesh Rao: Absolutely. And I would, again, I seem to be in a pattern of taking your points and refitting them in an even stronger form. But I would say, when you talk about brick and mortaring, look back at the reality of our pre-internet sort of highly brick and mortar social life. And, like Tyler Cowen said, many parties are empty. But I would elaborate on that and say: We remember the interactions that are lovely and wonderful face-to-face interactions, but we kind of block out of our memories the ones that are not. And I remember growing up, so many damn boring visits to my parents' friends, ceremonial culture of norms. I'm sure you know what I'm talking about. We used to live in a culture of norms where there was an expectation of sort of polite participation in vast hours, countless hours of like really boring, tedious face time. And I hated it.

And one of the most wonderful things that has happened as a result of the internet is that those online internet norms of 'If I'm bored, I'm going to leave,' they're actually percolating into meatspace. And the way that's happening is--for example, this became the Law of Two Feet in what used to be called open space technology and then became BarCamps. Where, when you do an unconference, you don't have the old academic conference approach of, just because of a respected elder professor is doing the keynote, you're sort of forced to sit, stay in the room, and pay attention even though bored out of your mind. You should leave. So modern unconferences have the internet-like Law of Two Feet, which is: If you're not actually interested in the conversation, if the person is boring, you get up and leave. Do something better with your time.

And I like that that norm is shifting in a more online way. I think Nir Eyal in his book, one of his points--I'm still looking through it--he talks about, I think he calls it a phubber or something. So somebody who is, like, snubbing you with a phone at dinner. So you're at dinner and apparently you're boring your dinner partner. So that person pulls out their phone and starts checking email at the slightest interruption. Right? So that's phone snubbing, or phubbing, as he calls it. But look at what that signifies. It tells you that you're in a fundamentally boring conversation you don't want to be in.

And though the sort of actual behavior may be obnoxious, of pulling out your phone and actually checking out literally, wouldn't it be so much nicer to not have that lunch meeting at all and to be able on Twitter to actually triage that and say, 'All right, it's been fun chatting with you for three minutes on Twitter, but I'm going to say no to coffee with you because you're probably going to bore me and I'm going to end up checking my phone. So let's not go there and insult and snub each other.' Right?

So, I love that that has now become a possibility and we're able to make our more intimate, deeper exchanges more high yielding. More of them are meaningful ,and the ones that are meaningful are more meaningful. Right?

And this is actually probably the biggest meta-critique I have with Waldenponding, which is it fetishizes an old style brick and mortar--and it's actually, by the way, that's actually as perverse a kind of attention hacking as the social media platforms do to you. So the social media platforms might be throwing clickbait at you and dragging you to useless articles you don't want. But equally there's all these sort of evangelists of Waldenponding who are hacking your attention with, like, ritual descriptions of 'Oh, what game nights! Wonderful world campfire lights, wonderful world, like family dinners, wonderful.' And they try to suck you back into that world and you realize that, 'You know what? That's romanticizing the past. And it never actually was that great. And I hate this freaking game night I've been sucked into.'

Russ Roberts:

Russ Roberts: That's awesome. Now, you remind me of my dad who often when he would, we would describe a dinner party, he would often say, 'Nyeah, I wish I'd been upstairs with my book.' It was gauche in the 1950s and the 1960s or '70s or '80s to take out a book in the middle of a conversation. But there were times when my dad would just say, 'I need to go lay down.' And he'd go upstairs and just read his book. Sometimes in the middle of a social gathering. Which had some kind of influence on me, I'm sure.

The other thing that I have to point out, Venkat, which is unbelievably great, is that about fo

UMC’s Western Jurisdiction announces ‘safe harbor’ for LGBTQ clergy

 Cache   

By Emily McFarlan Miller / Religion News Service

(RNS) — The bishops of the Western Jurisdiction of the United Methodist Church have declared their churches a “safe harbor” for LGBTQ clergy.

The Safe Harbor Declaration was announced Wednesday (Nov. 6) as United Methodists’ Council of Bishops wrapped up its autumn meeting in Lake Junaluska, North Carolina.

And it comes months before new restrictions strengthening the denomination’s ban on the ordination and marriage of its LGBTQ members, which are set to take effect on Jan. 1.

“We are haunted by the actions of the 2019 Special General Conference, which impose new and harmful definitions and restrictions on full participation of LGBTQ+ persons in the Church and abandon robust engagement of scripture to narrow biblical literalism,” the declaration stated.

“We do not believe The United Methodist Church has the authority or the power to impose limits on the movement of God’s Holy Spirit in the lives of God’s beloved LGBTQ+ children.”

The restrictions come as part of the Traditional Plan approved in February by a special session of the General Conference, the denomination’s global decision-making body.

The Traditional Plan bars bishops from consecrating, ordaining or commissioning “self-avowed practicing homosexuals,” even if they have been elected or approved by the appropriate church body. It prohibits those church bodies from approving or recommending them as candidates, as well.

The plan also will make it easier to file complaints against LGBTQ United Methodists seeking to enter ministry and against clergy presiding over same-sex weddings, according to the bishops of the Western Jurisdiction.

It strengthens current complaint procedures and penalties in the denomination’s rulebook, the Book of Discipline. A clergy member who performs a same-sex wedding will face a minimum one-year suspension without pay for the first offense and a loss of credentials for the second.

There is nothing else in the denomination’s rulebook, the Book of Discipline, that comes with a mandatory punishment, according to the bishops of the Western Jurisdiction.

The Western Jurisdiction will not withhold or challenge ordination based solely on a person’s gender identity or sexual orientation, according to Wednesday’s Safe Harbor Declaration.

It also will not punish clergy who officiate the marriage of “two adults of any gender or sexual orientation,” it said.

“At the same time, we recognize and will uphold the requirement that LGBTQ+ clergy, with all clergy, ‘maintain the highest standards of holy living’ in their personal and professional relationships,” the bishops said in the declaration.

The jurisdiction’s five bishops invited their fellow bishops, who make up the denomination’s Council of Bishops, to join them in signing the declaration during their autumn meeting.

And they’re hoping other United Methodists will sign online and act on it, as well.

“The bishops of the Western Jurisdiction do not intend to act alone. We call upon the entire Church to offer safe harbor for LGBTQ+ clergy and laity to participate fully in the life of The United Methodist Church,” according to the declaration.

The Western Jurisdiction of the United Methodist Church is represented by five active bishops: Bishop Robert T. Hoshibata of the Phoenix Episcopal Area, Bishop Minerva G. Carcaño of the San Francisco Episcopal Area, Bishop Grant Hagiya of the Los Angeles Episcopal Area, Bishop Elaine J.W. Stanovsky of the Greater Northwest Episcopal Area and Bishop Karen P. Oliveto of the Mountain Sky Episcopal Area.

Oliveto was consecrated as the United Methodist Church’s first openly LGBT bishop in 2016.

Historically, the Western Jurisdiction also has elected the first Asian American bishop, the first African American woman bishop and the first Hispanic American woman bishop, according to a statement it released following the special session.

The jurisdiction includes seven regional annual conferences, including the Alaska ConferenceCalifornia-Nevada ConferenceCalifornia-Pacific ConferenceDesert Southwest ConferenceMountain Sky ConferenceOregon-Idaho Conference and Pacific Northwest Conference.

This particular comment board almost made me want to like Laker fans a little bit. Is that blasphemy for a Jazz fan? Comment of the game: "Snyder looks like a wax statue that melted just a little bit." Other good comments: "Coach Snyder looks like he’s angry that he can’t serial-murder because he has to coach this game." "Uh oh… dr Satan has changed the momentum of the game to the Jazz." Finally, amid much complaining about the perceived not-so-great-play of Laker, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, and numerous suggestions to get him off the floor/team: "Who’s willing to MeToo KCP?"
          

#Win Nash: The Official Biography by Nash Grier & Rebecca Paley (US)

 Cache   
NASH GRIER is a twenty-one-year-old social media phenomenon with more than 25 million followers. Grier started his journey to worldwide celebrity by creating videos on the popular social media network Vine. From there, he has amassed huge followings on YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and Snapchat. As an actor, his credits include You Get Me, Air Bound, The Deleted, The Outfield, Scream, and Gnome Alone. Hailing from North Carolina, Grier now lives in Los Angeles. Visit @nashgrier on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube.

Rebecca Paley is the bestselling coauthor of memoirs by Leah Remini, Betty Halbreich, and more.





A typical American teen, Nash Grier was just trying to figure it all out. He had no idea a single six-second video made to generate a few LOLs, (perhaps an LMAO?), was destined to change his life forever—launching a wildly successful career as a viral social media sensation with legions of fans, including more than 25 MILLION followers across digital platforms.

“WHILE READING ABOUT THE WILD UPS AND DOWNS I’VE EXPERIENCED IN MY LITTLE MORE THAN TWO DECADES ON THIS EARTH, I ALSO HOPE YOU WILL IMAGINE YOUR OWN VISION OF SUCCESS AND FAILURE, DREAMS AND FEARS, PEAKS AND VALLEYS. I WANT YOU TO LAYER INTO MY STORIES PICTURES OF YOUR LIFE, BOTH AS IT IS AND AS YOU’D LIKE IT TO BE.”

Named one of TIME's “Most Influential Teens” and winner of multiple Teen Choice and Kids Choice Awards, the twenty-one-year-old digital media phenomenon shares never-before-told stories about life behind the camera. 


From growing up in North Carolina with two brothers, finding his calling as a social media tastemaker, and landing leading roles in feature films, to being an ambassador for top brands, using his platform to promote change, and relying on the support of his fan base when the going gets tough, NASH is the story of how one Gen Z pioneer found his voice—and how readers can find and share their own.

Ezek lesznek a tévében 2020-ban – helyzetjelentés a Big Picture-ről

 Cache   
November 5-én, Budapesten került megrendezésre a Big Picture – 2020 konferencia, a hazai televíziós iparág legnagyobb éves seregszemléjét, ahol televíziós társaságok és sales house-ok mutatták be, milyen változásokkal készülnek a 2020-as idényre.A november 5-én megrendezett Big Picture - 2020 konferencián mindenki ott volt, aki számít. A színpadon egymást váltották a tévétársaságok és a sales house-ok, ezzel nem csak a hirdetők kíváncsiságát elégítve ki, hanem teljes képet festve a hazai televíziós piacról, és arról, milyen újdonságok várhatóak a képernyőn 2020-ban. A házigazda Magyar Műsorszolgáltatók Elektronikus Egyesülete (MEME) elnöke, Kovács Krisztián egy általános piac- és trendismertető előadással nyitotta meg az eseményt, melyben kitért arra, hogy szignifikáns különbségek vannak a hirdetők és az ügynökségek véleményei között, ami a televíziós és az online hirdetéseket illeti. A hirdetők kevésbé érzik erősnek és olcsónak a TV-t, mint az ügynökségek. Ennek ellenére a televízió továbbra is vezető a reach és a megtérülés tekintetében. 2020-ra nagyjából 7 százalékos növekedésre számítanak, ami egybecseng a globális előrejelzésekkel; a Global Advertising Trends jelentése alapján ez körülbelül 6 százalékra tehető. Ezután a televíziós társaságoké lett a színpad. Szabó Péter a Média Vivantis terjesztési és értékesítési igazgatója nyitotta a prezentációk sorát. A Life TV október 14-i megújulása apropóján beszélt a 2020-as terveikről. A Life TV számos saját gyártású, első sorban női tartalommal jelentkezik. Szulák Andrea vezetésével kerül képernyőre a Nyugi! Köztünk marad... című beszélgetős és játék show, majd OldsCool címmel ad életvezetési tanácsokat három idősebb díva, Esztergályos Cecília, Karda Bea és Bay Éva. A Hello Hollywood exkluzív interjúkat kínál hollywoodi sztárokkal Návai Anikó tolmácsolásában. A lélek titkairól beszélget Peller Mariann a Lélekközösség című műsorban, míg alternatív lélekgyógyászattal foglalkozik majd a Spirit című adás. Hétköznapi emberek nem mindennapi életét hozza el a képernyőre a Hétköznapi hősök. Gasztró vonalon is erősít a csatorna még több műsorral. Míg a Backstage című saját gyártású sorozat a zeneipar háttértörténéseivel ismerteti meg a nézőt. A Life Utazás személyes úti összefoglalókat mutat majd be a világ számos pontjáról. A vásárolt tartalmak között olyan sorozatok szerepelnek, mint az Elizabeth, a Fekete özvegyek, vagy Dynamo, az illuzionista. A csajosabb témák kedvelőinek kedvez az Újra szexi leszek, a Modell leszek vagy a Szerelem a tengeren. A csatorna online is erősödést tervez, és a Facebook jelenlétük is egyre jelentősebb. Emellett bemutatásra került a Média Vivantis portfóliójának másik tagja, az Ozone TV új logója is. Ezután a TV2 Média Csoport képviseletében Fischer Gábor programigazgató beszélt a kábelportfólió eredményeiről. Elmondta: a csatornáik igyekeznek minden nézői igényt kielégíteni. Az új tervek tekintetében nemsoká indul a Mintaapák, amely egy argentin sorozat lokalizált, saját gyártású változata. Ettől sokat vár a csatorna. Szintén november 11-től indul Majka új game show-ja a Nyomd a gombot, Tesó! is. A játékot maga a műsorvezető fejlesztette. Ördög Nóra és Stohl András közös doku-realityje, az Újratervezés szintén idén ősszel kezdődik. A műsorvezetők hétköznapi családok otthonát és életét alakítják át. Egy másik játékkal is készül a TV2. A Catch! Úgyis utolérlek! lényegében egy felturbózott fogócska extrém körülmények között. A műsorvezető Ördög Nóra lesz. Folytatódik az Exathlon is még különlegesebb pályákkal, még egzotikusabb helyszínen. Visszatér jövőre a Sztárban sztár leszek, és folytatódik a Bezár a bazár! című vetélkedő is. A Fuss, család, fuss! viszont sajnos nem váltotta be a hozzá fűzött reményeket, ezért ebből nem érkezik folytatás. A Discovery Networks életében a legnagyobb újdonságok az Eurosport tekintetében érkeznek. A csatorna erősíti az online jelenlétet. Az Eurosport Player oldalon a néző maga választhatja ki, melyik sporteseményeket szeretné nézni. Elindult a honlap is, az eurosport.hosszabbitas.hu. 2020-ban a Grand Slam-tornák mellett jön a csatornán további 41 ATP torna is. A kerékpáros versenyek is visszatérnek jövőre, hiszen a Giro d'Italia 2020-ban Magyarországról indul. A WTCL során jövőre is látható lesz Michelisz Norbert összes futama, és a 2020-as tokiói olimpia közvetítési joga is a csatornacsoportnál van. A Discovery új magyar gyártású műsorral jelentkezik. A Hogyan készült? mintájára Gyetvány Csaba műsorvezetésével követhetjük nyomon, hogyan készülnek egyes magyar termékek a Made in-ben. A csatorna az új műsor exportálására is készül, így könnyen lehet, hogy az nemsoká külföldön is látható lesz. Szabó Balázs a SONY Pictures Television Networks CE-től elmondta, hogy a SONY az állandóságot igyekszik képviselni. A Viasat 3 csatorna műsorában megmarad az Észbontók, az Ide süss!, és a Feleségek luxuskivitelben. A Viasat 6 és a Sony Max is hoz saját gyártású sorozatokat. A SONY Pictures saját gyártású filmjei is műsorra fognak kerülni, de nagy hangsúlyt fektetnek a minőségi vásárolt tartalmakra is. Visszatérnek olyan meghatározó műsorok, mint az Az újonc, a New Amsterdam, vagy a Los Angeles legjobbjai. Jönnek új országos premierek is, és igyekeznek képernyőre hozni olyan népszerű film frenchise-okat, mint amilyenek a Marvel-filmek. MTVA-tól Galavics András főtanácsadó elmondta, hogy az MTVA csatornacsoport idén is megőrizte harmadik helyét. A nézőközönség tekintetében az idősebbek nagyobb számban képviseltetik magukat, és a csatornacsoport előnyei közé tartozik, hogy alacsony a reklámzaj. Az M4 Sport évek óta első. A top műsorok között ott van például a Forma 1. Sokan követik a Magyar labdarúgó-bajnokságot is. Az M4 Sporttal kapcsolatban Székely Dávid csatornaigazgató elmondta, hogy jövőre jön az olimpia mellett a labdarúgó-EB is. A csatorna célja, hogy a lehető legtöbb sportot megismertesse az emberekkel, és minél több emberhez jusson el minőségi közvetítés. 2022-ig meghosszabbították idén a Forma 1 közvetítési jogát. A magyar kézilabda-bajnokságok és a kézilabda-VB közvetítésének a joga is az M4 Sporté. Januárban érkezik a vízilabda-VB, a rövidpályás gyorskori-EB, indul a Bajnokok Ligája. 2020-ban 22 Forma 1-es futamra lehet számítani, és Magyarországról indul a Giro, amit szintén közvetítenek. Lesz úszó-EB is, június-júliusban kezdődik a labdarugó-EB, és az olimpia is. A csatorna adja a Nemzetek Ligája és a paralimpiai játékok közvetítéseit is. A labdarúgó-EB alatt rengeteg háttérműsorra és kiterjedt online jelenlétre is számítani lehet, akárcsak a nyári olimpia idején. M4 Sport lejátszón keresztül meg lehet majd nézni azokat a meccseket is, amelyek nem kerülnek adásba. A Digital Media&Communications-től Nick Doff igazgatósági tag beszélt a saját csatornáikról, melyek dizájnváltáson mentek át. A külalak így letisztultabb, modernebb lett, és a csatornák saját, jellemző színeket kaptak. A TV 4 a családi csatornájuk, ahol újra fut a Tökéletes feleségek és a Grey anatómiája, 2020-ban pedig jön a Galileo, a Tetthely, a Murdoch nyomozó rejtélyei, a Blood & Treasure és a The Affair. A Story 4-en visszatér a képernyőre Endrei Judit, valamint 2020-tól jönnek az orvosos szappanoperák a Circle of Life és a The Young Doctors. A Film 4 francia klasszikus komédiákkal erősít, míg a Galaxy 4-en jönnek a Vera, a Schnell ermittelt és a Kisvárosi gyilkosságok című krimisorozatok. Karin Haijink a Viasat World képviseletében első sorban a Viasat History újdonságairól adott számot, amely csatorna decembertől még több háztartásban lesz elérhető. Elmondta: szemben a versenytársakkal a Viasat History tisztán a történelemről szól, és fókuszál az európai közönségre. A következő hónapokban érkezik a Titanic: történetek a mélyből, majd A Berlini fal felemelkedése és bukása. Izgalmas új sorozatnak ígérkezik a Lost treasures of Central and South America, és érkezik még az örökzöld tartalmak közül a Pompei Rising, mely a katasztrófa sújtotta római város egy olyan részére kalauzolja a nézőket, ahol azelőtt nem járhattak. Az A+E Network a History Channel újdonságairól mesélt. A csatorna filozófiája, hogy élettelien igyekszik bemutatni a történelmet. Új évaddal érkezik a Tűzben edzett és az Ősi idegenek. Még idén novemberben jön David Hasselhoffal a Battle of the 80s Supercars. Decemberben a szablya történetéről érkezik egy új sorozat. Helyi partnerekkel pedig rendszeresen készülnek alkalmi rövid filmek, úgynevezett shortformok is, amelyeket rendszerint lokalizálnak, ilyen volt például idén a Húsvéti rövidfilmjük. Az AMC Networks International vezetője, Málnay B. Levente arról beszélt, hogy egy éve adták át az új stúdióikat, és most igyekeznek megtölteni minél több saját gyártású műsorral. Az eredetileg lakberendezési csatornának indult Spektrum Home mára átalakult életmód csatornává, és megnégyszerezte a nézettségét. Olyan népszerű sorozatok folytatódnak rajta jövőre is, mint a Nő komment, és a D.Tóth Kriszta nevével fémjelzett Elviszlek magammal. A Spektrumon is fontosak lesznek a saját gyártású produkciók. Tavaly jól futott a Tabukról tabuk nélkül, amely új évaddal érkezik. A TV Paprika megszokott sorozatai maradnak, és jelentkezik az Adventi kalendárium című műsor mind a csatornán, mind online, de ezen kívül is érkeznek még saját gyártású tartalmak, amelyekben a gasztrócelebek java szerephez jut. A Sport 1 és Sport 2 csatornákon továbbra is látható lesz a Ferencváros minden mérkőzése, valamint a Bundesliga meccsei. Elindul magyarul is a Jim Jam csatorna, mely a 2-5 éves célcsoportot célozza be. Márciustól pedig megkezdődik a reklámértékesítés is ezen a csatornán. Az AMC-n folytatódik a Fear the Walking Dead, jön a Preacher 4. évada, a Nus4a2 következő részei, jön a Terror 3. évada is, de a tartalma egyelőre még titok. Jövőre a Visionaries sorozatban érkezik a Hop Hop világa, és az 5. évadhoz ér a Breaking Bad spin-offja, a Better Call Saul. Az AMC célja, hogy megbízható, kiszámítható partnere legyen a hirdetőknek, ezt bizonyítja az is, hogy Málnay B. Levente szerint a csatornacsoport évről évre apró lépésekkel, de folyamatosan növekszik. A Viacom International Hungary képviseletében Harsányi Gábor kiemelte, hogy a cég a harmadik legnagyobb portfólió, és a gyerekportfóliója idén 20%-kal nőtt. Új csatornaként létrejött a Nicktoons is. A Comedy Central mellé indítottak egy új Comedy csatornát is. A Comedy portfólióban futnak például a Magyarország szereplek, a Comedy Club, a Susogós mackók, a Tömény történelem és a Mélynyomó című saját gyártású műsorok is. A Viacom esetében az egyik legfontosab hír a CBS-szel való egyesülés, ami valószínűleg még idén bekövetkezik. Ezzel óriási gyártási kapacitás jön létre, hiszen a CBS az amerikai piacon piacvezető portfólió. A Paramount mellé elérhető jó ideje a nonlineáris Paramount+ szolgáltatás, emellé most jön most majd a CBS All Access is. Az RTL Magyarországtól Kolosi Péter vezérigazgató-helyettes és programigazgató mutatta be a 2020-as terveket. Ami a digitális platformokat illeti, a karácsonyi időszakban az összes heti sorozat nézhető lesz az RTL Most+-on. Itt kerül bemutatásra a Négy esküvő és egy temetés, valamint az első három része a Bátrak földjének. A digitális platformra készült a saját gyártású, No filter című sorozat is. Az év elején átkerült az Éjjel-Nappal Budapest az RTLII-re, ami stabilizálta a nézettséget. Idéntől a Showder Klub is teljesen RTLII branddé válik. Az így felszabadult programidőben jelenhettek meg az RTL Klubon az új saját gyártású műsorok. Tavasszal elindul a Cápák között új évada, illetve készül a Bűnös lelkek című bűnügyi műsor az elmúlt évtizedek legbrutálisabb magyar bűnügyeiből. Marad a Drága Örökösök, és indul a Konyhafőnök VIP, valamint jövőre is lesz X-Faktor. 2020-ban indul az első magyar Álarcos énekes is, amelyben jelmezbe öltözött énekesek valódi kilétét kell megtippelni. A csatorna folytatja a saját gyártású és írású tartalmak készítését is. A Bátrak földje egy kosztümös sorozat, mely a kiegyezés idején játszódik. Scherer Péter főszereplésével érkezik az Apatigris, melyben egy elvált apukához hirtelen visszaköltöznek felnőtt lányai. Végül a Mellékhatás című krimi-dráma a béranyaság témakörét járja körül sok akcióval. A tévétársaságok után a sales house-oké volt a terep. Előbb az Atmedia, majd az R-time adta elő a jövőbeni terveit. Az Atmedia reklámzaja csökkent, ugyanakkot nőtt az általános reklámblokkszám és a -blokkhossz. Karácsony László stratégiai és marketingigazgató szerint ez a növekedés lassan tarthatatlanná válik. Eközben a tévéreklámok hatása még mindig megelőzi az online reklámok hatását. Kosaras Klaudia kereskedelmi igazgató a cég portfólióját elemezve elmondta, 2019-ben megszűnt az M3 és a DokuTV értékesítése, az Echo TV pedig beolvadt az Hír TV-be. Márciusban az ATV mellé érkezett az ATV Spirit, és a TV2 bővülésével a képviseletbe került a Moziverzum és Jocky TV is. Október 1-től két új csatorna indult, a Viasat History és a D1. Az év végén elköszönnek a SONY és a Turner csatornacsoportoktól. 2020-ban folyamatosan érkeznek majd a portfolióba a Viasat csatornák, jön az Explorer, a Nature és az Epic Drama. Valamint megkezdődik február 1-től az Eurosport értékesítése is. Ez összesen 43 csatornát jelent. A televízió mellett az online is nő, mivel több tévés partnernél megjelenik online tartalom. Idén bevezetésre kerültek az outstream megoldások, melyek szöveges környezetben elhelyezett videós tartalmakat jelentenek, valamint elindult az együttműködés a FitRadióval is. A kereskedelmi modell 2020-ban nem változik. A sporteseményekre való tekintettel létrehozásra kerülnek foci, illetve olimpiai csomagokat. 2020-ban az új kereskedelmi politika részeként megváltoznak a szezonindexek, elérhető lesz a 18+ vásárlási célcsoport az AtMax és az AtAdults csomagra vonatkozóan, valamint folytatódik az árszintnövelés. Az R-time ügyvezetője, Dudás Gergely pedig elmondta, idén sajnos nem minden ment simán. Bár a kereslet a ratingek iránt növekszik, a reklámidő nem végtelen, szinte minden csatorna a maximális reklámidejével üzemel, ezért kicsi a mozgástér. Ahhoz, hogy kiszámíthatóbb legyen a kampányok teljesítése, elkerülhetetlen az áremelés. 2020-tól két új partner is csatlakozik a sales house-hoz, a Warner Media és a Sony portfólió csatornái. A csomagok megerősítésre kerülnek, bekerülnek az újonnan érkező csatornák is. Finomításra kerülnek a célcsoportok, összevonják a 15-24 és a 18-29-es kategóriát, mert így nagyobb az esetszám, és megbízhatóbban becsülhető meg a kampányok teljesítése. Jön még két általános célcsoport, a 15-59 és a 25-59 is. Tovább fejlesztik a targetálást, valamint az R-time is módosít a szezonálisindexeken, melynek átlagos hatása 9 százalék lesz. A konferenciát egy kerekasztal beszélgetés zárta az Atmedia ügyvezetőjével, Guttengéber Csabával és az R-time ügyvezetőjével, Dudás Gergellyel, mely során körüljárták a reklámpiac jelenlegi helyzetét, és az áremelés szükségességét és körülményeit.
