Flagged For Fraud: Suspected Staged Accidents Involving 18-Wheelers Under Federal Investigation

 Cache   
The United States district attorney’s office is looking into federal insurance fraud cases surrounding staged accidents in the New Orleans area. Court documents obtained by WDSU Investigates show the investigation is expanding. "I don’t think we are the sole venue for insurance fraud and staged accident claims, it really is across the country," said attorney Harry Rosenberg, a former United States attorney for Southeast Louisiana. "We do seem to have a disproportionate share down here." Rosenberg oversaw federal investigators cracking down on insurance fraud rings. "It happened in the ’90s, it happened again 10 years later, and just last week the U.S. attorney indicted five individuals," Rosenberg said. "I think it is a pattern really, impacts billions of dollars."

Nicholas Payton Reimagines Musical Tradition With 'Black American Symphony'

 Cache   

Last month, trumpeter and composer Nicholas Payton had the U.S. premiere of his Black American Symphony with the Colorado Springs Philharmonic.

Payton, who's 46, is a trumpet virtuoso who grew up in a New Orleans jazz family. He first laid the groundwork for his symphony in a controversial 2011 blog post, titled "Why Jazz Isn't Cool Anymore." He suggested that the label "jazz" should be replaced with "Black American Music," and the idea hit a nerve.

"I was talking about my disdain for the word jazz and that really created a firestorm of events that was far-reaching well outside of the jazz world," he says.

At the time, he was writing a symphony for the 2012 Prague Proms, an international music festival in the Czech Republic. Payton became inspired by Czech composer Antonín Dvořák's advocacy of "Negro melodies" in American classical music and chose to center jazz composer-arrangers — like Gil Evans — and certain figures within R&B, funk and soul — like Charles Stepney, who was a producer and writer for Earth, Wind & Fire in the band's heyday — in his work.

The result was a six-movement symphony, for Payton's own quartet and an orchestra, that characterizes the history of Black music: from enslaved Africans' forced migration all the way up to the present day.

Black American Symphony had its European debut in 2012, but it wouldn't come to America for another seven years. The wait for its U.S. premiere may reflect some structural inequalities: According to the Institute for Composer Diversity, works by composers of color represent about only 6 percent of the music in this season's U.S. orchestra programs. Payton also says his provocative online persona might have had something to do with it.

"I think there were some people who didn't want to touch me cause I got labeled as the angry black guy," Payton says. "But you know, whereas I was talking about race 10 years ago, now everyone's talking about it every day and I don't seem so crazy anymore."

Of course, Black American Symphony did eventually come to America. Michael Sawyer, an assistant professor of Race, Ethnicity and Migration studies in the English department at Colorado College, spearheaded the effort to bring the Black American Symphony to Colorado Springs.

"I think what Nicholas is doing is centering our question of black culture in a way that doesn't push it to the margins where it's not tolerated, but it's being celebrated," Sawyer says. "When you start looking at yourself as centered rather than marginal, it changes everything."

Negotiating the divergent cultures of the orchestra and Black American music took some work in rehearsal. For most philharmonic musicians, Payton's music was a radical departure from the typical repertoire.

"He's often writing modern licks — jazz licks — for us to play," principal flutist Paul Nagem says. "These are licks that would be improvised, and then we're supposed to read them. And it's a challenge for it to sound appropriate and slightly authentic."

Payton's quartet and the orchestra had trouble syncing up rhythms, so Payton requested the removal of a plexiglass sound shield the Philharmonic had placed between the orchestra and his drummer, Marcus Gilmore. Losing that shield made all the difference for principal clarinetist Sergei Vassiliev. "Usually we're all locked in on the conductor," he says. "Here we have to listen to the sound of the drums; we have to listen to the bass. We have to move together."

For Michael Sawyer, the orchestra's focus on the drummer's timekeeping illustrates Payton's aim to center black culture. "The seat of power shifted from the conductor, who wanted to set the pace, to the drummer, who literally is the pacemaker for what Nicholas understands as Black American music," he says.

Years after his public dispute with the jazz world, Nicholas Payton remains intent on provoking change in both music and the broader culture. He may have just made his strongest statement yet, standing as a black American on a symphony stage, soloing over 60 musicians as they perform his own work.

"It's so epic," Payton says. "To have a section of, you know, 20, 30 strings as a pad behind you: It's like being in an alternate reality or something. It's just transportive. If I could feel that every night, that would be awesome."

GuestMagic.AI by InnSpire Becomes the 2019 HTNG TechOvation Winner

 Cache   

NEW ORLEANS (April 10, 2019) – Hospitality Technology Next Generation (HTNG) crowns GuestMagic.AI by InnSpire the 2019 HTNG TechOvation Award Winner at the HT-NEXT Awards Program in New Orleans, LA on April 10.

GuestMagic.AI is an online AI-driven platform for hoteliers that uses machine learning to anticipate the next step of the guests to deliver the right service at the right time. It’s device agnostic from smart-phone to tablet, to TV, to voice, and beyond. Using the digital guest journey as a footprint to enhance every technical touch-point in the guest’s path, the result is to have the experience flow like magic.

“I am extremely pleased that the industry sees the value in what we are trying to create; a fully customized and personal guest experience, that engages the guest from when they book until they book again – while using automation and AI to scale that experience,” said Martin Chevalley, CEO & Co-founder of InnSpire. “Combined with easy to use, relevant, proven and innovative technologies, our partner hotels are utilizing the digital guest journey, big data, social media, and their hotel CRM systems to ensure that what they are offering is personal, relevant and instantly accessible."

Data Laundry by dailypoint was a finalist in this year's TechOvation Award. The patent-pending and fully automated cleaning method, Data Laundry, reviews key data points collected by dailypoint, merges duplicates, corrects mistakes from human errors and ultimately creates a single profile for each guest. The clean data is then pushed back to the PMS and stored in dailypoint so all data is up-to-date across sources, allowing hotels to have a single source of truth for all guest data.

TraknProtect’s Safety Button was also a finalist in this year's TechOvation Award. This safety button is designed to protect guest room attendants in the hospitality industry, where instances of sexual harassment and assault have become too common. When feeling threatened or uncomfortable, a housekeeper can press the safety button. Once pressed, designated security personnel are alerted and given a precise location in order to provide immediate assistance in a situation where every second counts.

Datatrend Technologies served as the HT-NEXT Awards Program sponsor for the third year in a row. "Datatrend consistently strives to help organizations leverage technology to drive business outcomes and we are honored to sponsor these awards. We are highly invested in elevating solutions in the hospitality industry, as continuing to improve the guest experience is essential to enduring growth and success,” said Vice President Rob Graves of Datatrend Technologies. “This year’s TechOvation Award Winner, InnSpire, blew us away! We are impressed by the innovation and creativity displayed by the 2019 participants and look forward to advancing hospitality technology together. Congratulations to all on this huge accomplishment!”

The 27 Best Concerts in Portland: November 7-20

Cher! Brittany Howard! Summer Walker! Blitzen Trapper! by Mercury EverOut Staff

THURS NOV 7

{{image:7, align:right, width:250}}

CRITIC’S PICK: Seefeel
You don’t listen to the music of Seefeel—you submerge yourself in it. Each release by the UK quartet—four full-lengths and a bunch of EPs—is constructed from the usual rock-group elements: guitar, bass, drums, keyboard, and vocals. But from those pieces, the group bends and manipulates every sound with delicious indulgence, generating lush, balmy compositions that hang thickly in the air.

In Seefeel’s earliest incarnation, albums like 1993’s Quique and 1995’s Succour fell into an amorphous zone where shoegaze and the earliest blushes of EDM found common cause—the same place where groups like My Bloody Valentine and Curve were planting their flags. Led by core members Mark Clifford and Sarah Peacock, Seefeel were, by contrast, much softer and lighter. (Clifford also makes wonderful electronic rackets on his own and in the duo Oto Hiax; Peacock works with the more dance-oriented outfit Scala.) Their immersive, foggy material brought in the influence of dub reggae, Brian Eno’s ambient compositions, and the sleek futurism of Tokyo’s “environmental music” movement.

After a 1996 album, (CH-VOX), recorded for Aphex Twin’s label, tensions within the group split Seefeel apart for the better part of a decade. But an invite to play an anniversary party for Warp Records and a reissue of Quique in ’07 got Clifford and Peacock speaking and collaborating again, bringing in a new rhythm section comprised of former Boredoms members Iida Kazuhisa and bassist Shigeru Ishihara to complete the picture.

The subsequent years have hardened Seefeel’s sound, as evidenced by their 2008 self-titled album. The drum tracks are rigid and spare, and the music surrounding them is glitchy and agitated. It’s a reflection, perhaps, of our anxious modern age, but one that still slots in well with the evolution of their aesthetic as individuals and as a group. (Thurs Nov 7, 9 pm, Star Theater, 13 NW 6th, $25; w/Patricia Wolf, Wild Card) ROBERT HAM


FRI NOV 8

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 Lounge, 830 E Burnside, $20-23) KATHERINE MORGAN

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, 3939 N Mississippi, $15-17) RYAN J. PRADO

Yung Bae, Birocratic
Read our story on Yung Bae. (Sat Nov 9, 9 pm & Sun Nov 10, 7 pm, Holocene, 1001 SE Morrison, Sat sold out, Sun $15-17)

Robert Forster
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 suddenly passed away a year later.) Much has happened in Forster’s 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, 3939 N Mississippi, $22-25) ROBERT HAM


SUN NOV 10

Blitzen Trapper, The Parson Red Heads
The experimental folk-country monster pairing of Blitzen Trapper and the Parson Red Heads alone would make for a formidable evening at Revolution Hall, but tonight’s all-ages, fully seated show has a more philanthropic bent. The concert will benefit Do Good Multnomah, a local nonprofit working to assist veterans with housing by way of “relationship-building, one-on-one engagement, supportive services, and direct community participation.” Both bands are staples of Portland’s psych-oriented roots-rock scene and have transcended the city’s confines with their last several albums. Check them out and help a good cause at the same time. (Sun Nov 10, 7 pm, Revolution Hall, 1300 SE Stark, all ages, $30) RYAN J. PRADO


MON NOV 11

June of 44, Belonging
June of 44 disbanded soon after perfecting their squirrelly amalgam of post-rock and post-hardcore on 1999’s Anahata. For listeners of a certain (suddenly somehow old) age, the band’s return will trigger flashbacks to a time when it was illegal to make a student film without at least one Tortoise song on its soundtrack, but June of 44’s unexpected reunion promises to be more than a nostalgia trip. They were always a little too restive and mercurial to settle into a groove, so even a pitch-perfect recreation of their glory days will be nervy enough to light up the now. (Mon Nov 11, 7:30 pm, Star Theater, 13 NW 6th, $22-25) CHRIS STAMM

Son Little
Son Little has been making musical alchemy ever since releasing his debut EP in 2014. But on his early work, including his 2015 self-titled debut, you can hear Little only beginning to refine his unique sound—a mix of soul, blues, and electronica—which he’d come close to perfecting on 2017’s brilliant sophomore album New Magic. For his new EP, Invisible, Little traveled to Paris’ famed Studios Ferber, and the six new songs show the multi-instrumentalist and singer still continuing to develop and experiment with his craft. Tonight’s show at the Old Church isn’t to be missed; this preacher’s son is sure to give a sanctified and transcendent performance.

Bea Miller, Kah-Lo, Kennedi
Popping onto the scene as a 13-year-old X-Factor contestant with a jaw-dropping voice, Bea Miller is all grown up (at the age of 20) both physically and emotionally. Her voice has matured as well, with a full, husky, and soulful sound that drops into radio-ready dance club jams with little effort. But there’s depth in her lyrics as well, as exemplified by songs from her sophomore album Aurora, which showcase her deep moods about problematic relationships (“Burning Bridges”), slut-shaming (“S.L.U.T.”), and ultimately self-love (“Repercussions”). If you’re a complicated person with complicated feelings, Miller is on your team, stylishly and confidently pushing all the right emotional buttons.

Summer Walker
Atlanta-born singer/songwriter Summer Walker has become R&B’s newest “It Girl” on the heels of her single “Girls Need Love” (along with a Drake remix), and her outstanding studio debut Over It. Vocally speaking, Walker’s appropriately titled project is basically flawless. There are obvious standouts, like “Playing Games” featuring Bryson Tiller, “Wasted,” and “Come Thru” which both samples and features Usher. Another notable release is an older cut, “Session 32,” which Walker sometimes likes to perform on acoustic guitar. And from the sounds of her live performances online, she tends to sound identical to the record. If you’re into the sex-positivity of Megan THEE Stallion and like well-seasoned R&B vocals riding on a trap beat (à la H.E.R. and Ella Mai), Summer Walker’s impeccable soul-singing is right up your alley.

Hustle and Drone, Karma Rivera, Kileo
It’s been five years since Portland-based electro-pop band Hustle and Drone released its debut full-length album, Holyland. At one point, members Ryan Neighbors and Andy Black thought they’d made major progress on a follow-up effort, with 25 songs written over a two-year period. But when producer Sonny DiPerri heard them, his response—described by the band only as “tough love”—prompted the duo to scrap everything and start over from scratch. This time, their work turned into an actual album, What an Uproar, which finds Hustle and Drone exploring a very moody take on synth and beat-driven electro-pop. Upbeat but not cheerful, catchy but not effusive, What an Uproar is a collection of dark and danceable bummer-songs that befit our times. (Thurs Nov 14, 9 pm, Bunk Bar, 1028 SE Water, $7) BEN SALMON

Rodney Crowell, Joe Robinson
Among a particular school of songwriters, Rodney Crowell is country music royalty. His place in the Nashville firmament was secured by not only the run of number one singles he scored in 1988-89 (all from his album Diamonds & Dirt), but also his work with Emmylou Harris and lesser known masterpieces like “Voilà, an American Dream” and “Stars on the Water.” With that pedigree, Crowell should be headlining a much bigger venue than the Alberta Rose Theatre. But rather than gripe about that, let’s instead revel in the fact that we’ll get to experience his intimate songs in an appropriately intimate setting.

Death Valley Girls, Crocodiles, Kate Clover
Death Valley Girls creates fuzzed-out, overdriven, guitar-heavy rock ’n’ roll that owes just as much to riot grrrl pioneers like Bikini Kill as to proto-punk icons like the Stooges and Dead Boys. Formed in 2013 by guitarist Larry Schemel and frontwoman Bonnie Bloomgarden, the LA band has released only a few albums, including their 2014 Burger Records debut, Street Venom, but their new single, “Dream Cleaver,” released this August on Suicide Squeeze, might be their catchiest work yet, proving that their best material is still ahead of them. For proof of their proto-punk credentials, check out their 2018 music video for “Disaster (Is What We’re After),” starring a very bemused-looking Iggy Pop eating a hamburger.

Brother Ali, Evidence
The beauty of hip-hop’s multifaceted evolution over the past couple of decades is that there’s something out there for everyone. If, for example, sing-song pop-hop or slurry Soundcloud rap isn’t your thing, you can dig into artists like Brother Ali and Evidence, two skilled MCs connected to respected indie hip-hop label Rhymesayers Entertainment. Ali is the better known of the two, thanks to a two-decade career built around his thoughtful, soft-spoken style and his social activism. His most recent album All the Beauty in This Whole Life is another banger in an incredibly consistent catalog. Evidence’s sound is more aggressive, both in its lyrical content and its beats. He came up with LA’s Dilated Peoples, one of the giants of the ’90s underground, but he ain’t falling off: His most recent album Weather or Not was one of the best releases of 2018, regardless of genre.

Amy Rigby
In my dream Coachella-style music festival, Amy Rigby would be the big headliner. She’s certainly got the talent and the tunes to command an audience of thousands. Just give a spin to her spotless 1996 debut album Diary of a Mod Housewife or her equally perfect 2018 release The Old Guys, records that are brimming with chiming power-pop tunes and Rigby’s arch yet sensitive worldview. As it is, Rigby will be bringing her inestimable skills to the much smaller confines of Turn! Turn! Turn! to perform some tunes and read from her recently published memoir Girl to City.

Sea Caves, Lee and the Bees, Jame Doe
After being nearly finished writing and recording their latest record, founding Sea Caves member Shiloh Halsey fired himself as lead singer, and the group searched for someone new to front the band. Having recently reformed with singer Sydney Rohrs, at the helm, Portland dream-pop five-piece Sea Caves is set to release Across the Water, their follow-up to 2016’s easily likeable Bright Forest. Across the Water (out November 15) comes after two excellent singles, “Dart” and “Birds”—and the rest of the album is just as pleasant. The 10-track project embraces change in spite of the inevitable discomfort that typically accompanies it. (Sat Nov 16, 9 pm, Bunk Bar, 1028 SE Water, $10) JENNI MOORE

Ulthar, Tithe, Hungers
Oakland’s Ulthar are the musical equivalent of some ethereal being from an H.P. Lovecraft story; a grotesque sin against nature, dripping goo from its unreasonable amount of appendages and eyeballs, handily exposing mankind’s flaws with its ancient knowledge and biological superiority. Ulthar is scathing, ever dissonant, and, depending on which side of the creature you’re hearing, straight death metal, black metal, or even crust. And wouldn’t you know it, upon further research, their lyrical themes are Lovecraft-inspired as well. Sound, meet context. The band formed in 2014, releasing their first full-length Cosmovore last year. Seeing as how this monster is in the early gestation period, you can expect Ulthar to get even stranger and more dangerous.

Devon Welsh, Sorry Girls
Devon Welsh’s voice is a little miracle, a consoling gift akin to dawn light streaming through a lover’s window or the smell of rain on hot concrete. It’s hard to describe how a voice like this echoes inside of the listener. It is a presence, not a force. And thank god. There is too much force in the world and not enough presence. There are too few subtle sharpenings of time and space, too few voices like Welsh’s, which seems more poured than pushed, something purified and released back into the world from which it came, where it will dirty itself once again. It is the sound of being alive inside a self that is inside something too huge to comprehend. (Sun Nov 17, 8 pm, Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi, $12-14) CHRIS STAMM

The Preservation Hall Jazz Band
The 56-year-old Preservation Hall Jazz Band embodies the best of New Orleans’ slightly sloshy French Quarter: the music. A cornerstone of the city’s jazz scene, Preservation Hall’s upbeat, brassy tunes sound plucked from a Frenchmen Street second line procession. So It Is (2017), the septet’s second album containing all-original melodies, infuses the band’s historic jazz tunes with Afro-Cuban beats, adding to Preservation Hall’s magical ability to transform melodies into a layered history of New Orleans. Now the prolific band is touring in support of their new record A Tuba to Cuba, out on November 29. Their recent main-stage set at Pickathon was worthy of all the standing ovations, and their upcoming show, while indoors, should be just as marvelous.

Big Freedia, Low Cut Connie
New Orleans bounce artist Big Freedia comes to Portland quite a bit. Most recently, Freedia played a wild, twerk-forward opening set at the Roseland while on her joint tour with fellow NOLA act Tank and the Bangas. Freedia is known for her high-energy live shows, and inviting a bunch of audience members on stage, where they can present their best twerking skills while Freedia hypes them up. Having toured with other contrasting acts like LCD Soundsystem and the Postal Service, Freedia’s current tour with roots rockers Low Cut Connie should come as no surprise.

Cher, Nile Rogers and Chic
If you were wondering if Cher, now 73, is ever going to stop performing—she’s not. Cher is a goddamn juggernaut of energy, hits, and sass that will outlast the final cockroach crawling on Earth after climate change has burned the rest of us to a crisp. She will rise out of whatever ashes are left, surrounded by sequined flames, looking FABULOUS, and rocketing into the stratosphere singing, “Do you BELIEVE in life after love?” And as she and her gorgeous contralto voice soars, hurtling headlong into space, she’ll still be tweeting sweet shit-talk at Donald Trump, and plotting her fifth comeback (YES, FIFTH—LOOK IT THE FUCK UP) eventually landing in some galaxy far, far away, ready to entertain and delight every person, alien, or thing that is lucky enough to be in her glorious path—just as she has for the past 44 years. Nile Rogers and Chic (“Le Freak,” “Good Times”) are fortunate enough to be sharing this bill (those lucky sons of bitches). (Tues Nov 19, 7:30 pm, Moda Center, 1 N Winning Way, all ages, $27-647) WM.

Liturgy, Truck, U SCO
Like foie gras and Snickers and amusement parks, Liturgy songs are deeply satisfying until the second you’ve had enough, at which point you just want to bail and not think about having a body and brain anymore. This is not a knock on band mastermind Hunter Hunt-Hendrix’s boundary-nudging black metal. His compositions mess with the cloistered world of extreme music in rewarding ways, but they can be kind of a lot. Take this not as a warning but as a promise: Liturgy will push you past the line between too much and way too much, and you’ll definitely feel it in the morning.

Julia Jacklin, Christian Lee Hutson
Anyone present at either of Julia Jacklin’s Pickathon performances this past summer (but especially her Treeline Stage set) are keenly aware of the Australian artist’s hypnotic stranglehold on timeless folk songwriting. Her 2019 sophomore record, Crushing, catapulted her into the echelon of Aussies/Kiwis apparently plotting to take over the singer/songwriter world (along with Courtney Barnett, Aldous Harding, and Stella Donnelly, to name a few). “Crushing” is a great descriptor for Jacklin’s easy-breezy pop tunes, too, like the driving, heavy-lidded “Head Alone” or the more raucous “Pressure to Party.” Give her a great welcome back to Oregon tonight in the cozy Aladdin.

Best known as the keyboard player in Nine Inch Nails and the frontman for electronic-alternative band SONOIO, Alessandro Cortini is coming to shake things up at Holocene. Strangely, Cortini’s solo artistry is almost unheard of, which makes describing why you should see this show harder than normal. Cortini’s an artist who cares about his craft; every note is calculated, but only you can determine how they are deciphered. Attending a Cortini show almost feels intimate, but he is a master of tone and bass, so even when you feel alone, it will warm your soul to know that you aren’t. Get out on the dance floor and get ready to have your mind blown. (Wed Nov 20, 8 pm, Holocene, 1001 SE Morrison, $18-20) KATHERINE MORGAN

CRITIC’S PICK: Brittany Howard
Brittany Howard has more than proven herself as a leader in the retro-soul movement. After two critically acclaimed albums with roots-rock band Alabama Shakes (2012’s Boys & Girls and 2015’s Grammy-winning Sound & Color), singer/songwriter Brittany Howard dropped her solo studio debut Jaime in September. On this new album, Howard has full artistic control and pushes the envelope of soul music with an authentic, modern angle that doesn’t shy away from the vulnerable or political. The stunning record is a testament to Howard’s expert vocal control, and its songs reveal that she’s done her fair share of soul-searching—where do I even start? Lead single “History Repeats” was already exceptional, but the vintage-sounding “Stay High” has become one of my favorite (and most applicable) love songs of 2019. (Howard also recently released a gorgeous video of her performing a stripped-down, acoustic version of the song in a rural New Mexico setting, and it’s a master class in musicianship.) Other highlights include... the entire fucking thing, but especially “He Loves Me,” “Goat Head,” the weary “13th Century Metal,” and “Georgia.” As Howard explained during her recent performance on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series, “Georgia” was written from “the perspective of being a little young Black gay girl having a crush on an older Black girl, and not knowing how to tell her, or what to say or how I was feeling.” The song starts with a sweetly sung chorus that repeats “I just want Georgia to notice me,” and then Howard opens each verse as if she’s addressing a letter to the titular character, crooning the familiar melody of “Georgia on My Mind” for just a moment. Howard’s careful and tender vocalizations beautifully express her feelings of uncertainty during the song’s climax: (“Is it unnatural?/Georgia, is it cool?/I wanna tell you that I love you”); but it’s the exquisite, mounting sound of organ keys and a swelling guitar solo that make the love confession song a full-blown masterpiece. From watching all the videos of her recent live sessions, it’s hard to determine whether Howard and her band sounds better live or recorded, but her upcoming gig at the Roseland will give Portlanders a chance to decide for themselves.

Doctors held by ICE shocked by conditions at facility

 Cache   
The two men haven't met, but their stories are strikingly similar.

They grew up in Cuba, studied to become doctors and swore an oath to do no harm.

Then, years later, they ended up somewhere they never expected: a privately-run US immigrant detention center in rural Louisiana.

Held behind bars as they pleaded for asylum, these men say they watched people around them receiving poor medical care, but -- despite their years of training -- felt powerless to help.

It's a rare perspective that hasn't been heard in the US immigration debate.

These men aren't auditors paid by prison companies. They aren't government experts dropping by for occasional inspections. They aren't activists protesting conditions they haven't had a chance to see with their own eyes.

They're doctors who became immigration detainees themselves -- held for more than a year inside a system that they warn is putting people's health at risk daily. One remains detained; the other was just deported after more than 15 months behind bars.

Among their allegations, made in court filings and detailed in interviews with CNN: mold on the walls, incorrect diagnoses and improper use of quarantines.

In a statement released to CNN, the private prison company that runs the facility said it "strongly disputes" any allegations of inadequate medical care. ICE said it couldn't comment on the specific allegations due to pending litigation, but said the agency provides "comprehensive medical care" and is committed to the welfare of everyone in its custody.

The doctors' observations come amid growing concerns about illnesses and diseases spreading behind bars as ICE detains more people.

"Their perspective and their insight is extremely eye-opening," says Laura Rivera, director of the Southeast Immigrant Freedom Initiative at the Southern Poverty Law Center, which is representing the doctors in a class-action federal lawsuit over ICE detention and parole practices. "Here you have people who understand what it means to take an oath to do no harm. ... They're trained to evaluate and diagnose and treat, and they're seeing the failures of the system at every step of the way."

He said guards painted over mold on the walls rather than fixing the problem

It was July 2018 when a Cuban doctor arrived at the Laredo, Texas, port of entry, and told authorities he was fleeing persecution in his home country and seeking protection in the United States. Like thousands of others who arrive at the border seeking asylum, he was transferred to Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody.

The moment he settled into his bunk at the Pine Prairie ICE Processing Center in Pine Prairie, Louisiana, the 31-year-old Cuban doctor says he noticed something was off. Mold grew on the wall and water dripped down onto his bed, he wrote in a sworn declaration filed in court in June. He covered part of the wall with garbage bags to keep it away from his pillow.

Still, he said, water would run down the wall and pool onto the floor.

He and fellow detainees pointed the mold out to guards, he said, and warned that the pooling water was a safety hazard. Their response: repaint the wall.

"They did nothing for two months," he wrote in his declaration. "Then they simply painted over the mold."

The doctor was recently transferred to a detention center in Alabama and deported after being held for more than a year at the Pine Prairie facility. His attorney asked CNN not to name him out of fear for his safety.

While he waited for months to learn his fate, the doctor told CNN he felt he had no choice but to speak out about what he'd witnessed in the United States -- just as he says he spoke out about unjust medical care he saw in Cuba.

"It's what I know," he said, "and it's the only way I can help."

In his June court filing, he described the conditions he observed at Pine Prairie as "unsafe, unsanitary and discriminatory."

One day, a detainee slipped and fell in a puddle made by the pooling water and broke both his arms, the doctor said in the court filing.

That's not the only injury that could result from the conditions, the doctor said. He worried that mold on the walls and poor ventilation were causing deeper medical problems that could emerge years later.

"It has become quite clear to me that our safety is not a priority of the staff here, which is deeply upsetting," he alleged in his June court filing.

ICE says it spends $260 million every year on health care for detainees

The Pine Prairie ICE Processing Center, where both doctors who spoke with CNN were detained for the majority of their time in US custody, is about 45 miles south of Alexandria, Louisiana, and about 200 miles from New Orleans.

Owned and operated by one of the nation's largest private prison companies, The GEO Group, it can house nearly 1,100 adult male detainees, and it's currently one of nearly a dozen detention facilities ICE uses in Louisiana, a growing hub for the agency in the past year.

ICE declined to respond to the specific claims the doctors made, citing the agency's policy not to comment on pending litigation. "Lack of comment should not be construed as agreement with or stipulation to any of the allegations," spokesman Bryan Cox said in an email.

ICE detainees across the US have access to physicians, nurses, mental health care providers, dental care and 24-hour emergency care, Cox said. And nationwide, he said, the agency spends more than $260 million annually on health care services for detainees.

A GEO Group spokesperson said the company disputes any allegations of inadequate medical care at its facilities.

"We recognize the majority of residents would prefer to be outside these Centers," the statement said, "but while the immigration and legal processes run their course which our company plays no role in, we are committed to protecting those entering our facilities and ensuring they are provided high-quality, culturally responsive services in safe, secure and humane environments, and are treated with compassion, dignity and respect."

GEO says detainees undergo medical, mental health and dental screenings when they arrive at Pine Prairie and are provided with 24/7 medical services. The medical program there is accredited by national organizations and "strictly complies" with ICE detention standards established under the Obama administration, according to GEO.

Pine Prairie's last annual inspection, which included experts in medical care, took place in April, Cox said. The facility was "found to be fully compliant with all 40 categories reviewed by the inspection team," he said.

Such inspections have been criticized by immigrant rights advocates and the DHS inspector general, which has noted they do little to ensure compliance with ICE's standards.

Unable to see patients, he offered to mop the infirmary floors

While playing baseball was his first love, the doctor said practicing medicine was a calling that inspired and defined him. He loved connecting with his patients and helping to heal them. Even in his spare time, he'd watch medical dramas like "ER," "Grey's Anatomy" and "House," then eagerly research the rare illnesses he'd learned about in each episode.

Even though he left his career in Cuba behind when he fled to the United States, the doctor said he mentioned his profession during his initial medical checkup when he arrived at Pine Prairie last year. He hoped he'd be able to assist them somehow -- to be a bridge between his fellow detainees and the facility's medical staff. Later, once he realized that wasn't a possibility, he asked if he could take on a different task.

"I wanted to clean the infirmary," he said. "At least I'd be more or less in my world, even though I'd be cleaning."

Instead, he said, he was given a job working in the kitchen.

It's not clear how many of the more than 50,000 people detained in ICE facilities are doctors. Those who spoke with CNN said they'd heard of other doctors being detained, but never met them.

Instead of the white coat he once wore making hospital rounds, on most days at Pine Prairie, the doctor sat in his bunk wearing a white T-shirt and orange pants. But he said fellow detainees started coming to him for help as word of his past life spread.

"Here, I am not a doctor. I cannot prescribe anything," he told CNN in a phone interview from the detention facility over the summer. "But I give them advice. I tell them, 'Go to the doctor and tell them this is what you have, and when you were sick with it another time, this is what you took.'"

He's concerned medical problems are minimized

In his court-filed declaration, the doctor detailed how he and others who've sought treatment while detained felt their concerns weren't taken seriously.

"They don't see you as a patient," he told CNN. "They see you as a prisoner."

He said this led to incorrect diagnoses, improper treatment and delays in care -- problems he believed he saw play out time and again in the more than a year he was held in ICE detention.

"If an urgent medical request is filed, it can take four or five days for officers to take the sick individual to the medical unit," the doctor said in his court declaration. "I have met individuals with many medical conditions who are not receiving the treatment they urgently need."

In the filing, the doctor described what he said was a particularly troubling example.

At one point, he wrote, a bunkmate with night sweats, skin lesions and swollen lymph nodes was only treated with Tylenol even though he was likely suffering from a serious illness.

The doctor acknowledged he didn't know what his bunkmate's final diagnosis was, but feared the man missed "months of necessary treatment."

Budgets and bottom lines seem to matter more in decisions, the doctor believes, than symptoms and sickness. He fears healing patients isn't the only priority for staff at Pine Prairie and other ICE detention facilities.

"It's to save money," he said.

Another Cuban doctor who was transferred into ICE custody after asking for asylum at the border told CNN he's had a similar experience while he's been detained, advising fellow detainees as medical problems come up. That doctor, who said he fears persecution in Cuba and asked to be identified only by his initials, P.S.P., described what he said in a June court filing were "foul conditions" at Pine Prairie. He spent months there and was transferred to a different facility in Mississippi over the summer.

"It's been very, very difficult and draining to be here, seeing people keep getting deported," he says.

P.S.P. hopes to study medicine again in the United States and embark on a new career here. But he's worried he won't get the chance.

"I have lost myself since being in detention," he said in a court filing this year. "I may never be able to practice medicine again."

They question whether quarantines were handled properly

Inspectors noted in April that a mumps outbreak at Pine Prairie had required quarantining more than 500 detainees there.

The first doctor who spoke with CNN said he was one of them. A quarantine forced him to miss a court date and made it harder to meet with his lawyer, he says in his court declaration. But, he said at the time, no one around him showed any sign of the illness.

"As a doctor, I know how to recognize the symptoms of mumps, and I never saw a single person in my bunk with mumps while we were quarantined," he wrote in his court declaration.

Another time when he and several others did have symptoms of the disease, he said, they weren't diagnosed with it or placed in quarantine.

"I think it is highly unjust for doctors to review patients and fail to provide them with an accurate diagnosis and proper treatment," he said in his court declaration. "It seems to me like the jail only uses quarantines when it is convenient for them."

P.S.P. also says he saw multiple mumps quarantines during his time in detention.

"Often, the prison officials use illness as a weapon to punish all the inmates, by placing us under quarantine, which is very similar to isolation," he said in his court declaration.

ICE said thousands of detainees across the country were quarantined for exposure to mumps or chicken pox over the summer. And in August, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued its first report on mumps outbreaks in detention facilities, noting that nearly 900 adults held in immigrant detention facilities had contracted the contagious disease in the past year.

In June, an ICE official told CNN that the agency had successfully prevented communicable diseases from spreading in the past, but added that the recent wave of quarantines would likely lead to increased time in detention and delays in deportations.

They sued over ICE's parole practices

Both doctors are plaintiffs in a lawsuit filed against ICE earlier this year.

But medical care in custody wasn't the focus of that class-action case, which was filed by the SPLC and the American Civil Liberties Union of Louisiana and has nearly a dozen plaintiffs.

The federal suit alleges that ICE officials in the agency's New Orleans district -- which covers Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee -- have been violating their own policies and issuing blanket denials of parole to asylum seekers who could qualify for release.

Government attorneys denied that accusation and asked a judge to dismiss the case.

A judge ruled in the plaintiffs' favor last month, issuing a preliminary injunction ordering ICE to follow its policies and weigh each parole request individually.

The case is still pending, and attorneys are sorting out the next steps.

Meanwhile, the doctors' descriptions of mold, quarantines and medical care are just a few paragraphs in a growing stack of legal filings.

Why mention such matters in this lawsuit at all?

The doctor who was recently deported said the oath he swore to uphold was still guiding him.

"It's what I know -- medicine. And it's the only way I can help, by denouncing the bad treatment of people and the bad medical attention. I denounced it in my own country. And I came here and denounced it, too," he told CNN in a phone interview from Pine Prairie, weeks before his deportation.

"We are talking about human lives. It is more important than parole. It's more important than all of this, that lives are not lost."

NOLA celebrates opening of new terminal at Louis Armstrong International Airport

NOLA celebrates opening of new terminal at Louis Armstrong International Airport

NEW ORLEANS – The much-anticipated opening of the new Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport has arrived. On Wednesday morning, the facility's very first departure flight took to the skies, headed for Atlanta.

According to WWL, the new $1.3 billion terminal was celebrated on Tuesday with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and in true New Orleans fashion, a second line.   

During the ribbon-cutting, Governor John Bel Edwards applauded the state’s investment in the new facility, saying, “This is an exciting day. It’s not every day you get a billion-dollar investment where you actually get to go out and cut a ribbon and do the grand opening.”

New Orleans Mayor, LaToya Cantrell and a host of other local dignitaries also cut the ribbon on the new 972,000 square foot airport. 

The updated facility offers an entirely new experience for travelers; it features music venues, three rooms for mothers to bring small children, charging locations for electronic devices, and plenty of parking, with 8,000 available spaces.

    The last of Halloween Reading

    My Best Friend’s Exorcism by Grady Hendrix. A horror novel set – very specifically, with many pop culture references – in 1988. Abby and Gretchen, high school sophomores, have been best friends for years and years, the sort of best friends that have secret codes and personal rituals and phone calls every night to dissect that day at school, despite Abby being from the poor side of town and Gretchen's parents being extremely wealthy and WASP-y. Until one summer night, when Abby and Gretchen experiment with LSD and Gretchen ends up alone and lost in the nearby woods for hours. Or... maybe not alone, because the next day she begins to act differently. Subtly, at first – not showering, not sleeping, claiming she hears voices. Then she begins to lash out violently, actively destroying her friendship with Abby and sabotaging the other girls in their class. Was she raped that night, and this is all some form of PTSD? Is she being abused by her parents? Or did she encounter a secret group of Satanists and is now possessed by the devil?

    As you might guess from a plot that involves both Satanic conspiracies and the dangers of trying drugs, My Best Friend’s Exorcism is extremely enamoured of its 80's setting. (Look at that cover! This was published in 2016, but someone clearly knows their stuff.) However, what the novel's really about, more than anything else, is the friendship between Abby and Gretchen. I was shocked when I realized that the author is a man, because it's such a perceptive, kind, respectful depiction of teen girls and their bonds. It's honestly hard to believe Hendrix was never himself a sixteen year old girl! There is horror (warning for a dead dog) and humor (the exorcist Abby eventually turns to is a bodybuilder who lifts weights for Christ and who, as becomes increasingly obvious, has never actually led an exorcism before), but every element – including a climax that is equally scary, hilarious, and emotional – is a celebration of their friendship. An excellent book for anyone who has the slightest affection for lifelong friendships and their importance.


    The Last Pirate of New York: A Ghost Ship, a Killer, and the Birth of a Gangster Nation by Rich Cohen. God, I had so many problems with this book. Let's start with the title. The Last Pirate of New York is the nonfiction account of Albert Hicks, who murdered three men in 1860 in a crime that set off a media frenzy, making him hugely famous. Hicks was hung on Liberty Island (before the statute was installed, of course) with a watching crowd of between ten and twenty thousand people, the last man to be publicly executed in New York. This is enough to base a book on! This is an interesting story in and of itself! This is not remotely the story of either a pirate or a gangster!

    Okay, fine. Hicks technically was tried for piracy, but only because – no one having found the bodies of his victims, which presumably were at the bottom of New York Harbor – the state was afraid he'd escape a murder charge. He did commit the murders on board a boat, but a boat that never made it to the open ocean, staying within the harbor for the entirety of this doomed voyage. Not really what I think of when I see a book with "pirate" on the cover. Especially because NYC did have real pirates of the stereotypical sort, most famously but not limited to Captain Kidd! Secondly, if we're going to count killing people in a bay as piracy, Hicks is not the last; Cohen several times mentions other river pirates operating around the same time.

    Thirdly, Hicks is even less of a gangster than he is a pirate. Cohen is obviously very enthused about New York's history with gangsters and spends a lot of time discussing them, bragging about his interactions with their still surviving relics. (I mean all of this is in regards to gangsters of The Godfather and Boardwalk Empire sort, not gangsters of Boyz n the Hood or The Wire sort, which I feel is an obvious point of confusion but one which Cohen never deigns to acknowledge.) Hicks worked alone, and had no followers, accomplices, or any sort of larger organization that one might call... you know... a gang. You can't be a gangster by yourself. Cohen does argue that Hicks became a legendary figure in the NYC underworld after his death, his story told and retold for generations. But this theory, which could have been fascinating and a major focus of the book, is relegated to a few pages in an afterword and we're never shown evidence that it actually happened.

    Another problem I had with The Last Pirate of New York is that the majority of the pages are spent on the police investigation and subsequent trial, which is fine in and of itself; many a true crime book has chosen that focus. But Cohen gives us a detailed description of Hicks's actions during the murder at the beginning of the book, which means the subsequent 120 pages have no tension or suspense. We know he did it. There's no question of if they're following the right guy, or if maybe the suspect is really innocent, or if he did it but won't be found guilty. All of that is obvious from the very beginning, leaving nowhere new for the book to go. Bizarrely, Cohen details the step-by-step of the murder at the beginning of the book, then does so again near the end, when Hicks confesses. Not only is it the same scene told twice, Cohen uses many of the exact same phrases. And it's not a particularly long book, so wasting pages on this retelling really stands out.

    Cohen also spends a lot of time on Hicks's confession, which he sold in book-form to a publisher immediately before his execution. Personally, I was extremely skeptical that anything in this confession actually happened; not only did Hicks supposedly participate in every single important event of mid-1800s America (he visited the California gold rush! He was in the Mexican-American war! He lived in Hawaii, Tahiti, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, New Orleans!) but it hits every trope of the standard penny dreadful (he was the only survivor of a shipwreck – twice! He killed hundreds of men but was too good to rape women! He protected mistreated cabin boys! He buried $200,000 in Mexico and the treasure is still out there for you to find! All of these crimes attributed to a famous bandit were actually committed by Hicks!). Cohen doesn't seem to have made an effort to verify any of the stories that happened outside of NYC. And I get it, the historical records for rural Mexico on crimes that were never tried are not going to be a great source of information, but that's not an excuse to spend dozens of pages uncritically recounting this story.

    Cohen uses a lot of photographs to illustrate his story, but they were mostly taken much later than the events in question, sometimes up to sixty years later. And again, I understand the choice – there's not a lot of useful photographs from the 1850s; a building won't have changed that much in appearance – but the fact that he never explicitly acknowledges this discrepancy bothered me.

    So, is there anything good about The Last Pirate of New York? Cohen's writing isn't terrible... at least, not all of the time. His descriptions of Old New York can be quite well-written: The little party followed State Street across Bowling Green, then walked up Broadway, which had once been an Indian trail. Before the Civil War, you could still see evidence of that, in the hard-packed dirt, in the way it rambled, and in the smells, which were the smells of America old and new, smells of horse manure and leather and human sweat, but also the stench of factories; of putrid meat from the slaughter yards and tanneries, of oil from the gasworks and refineries.
    Unfortunately it's also not always accurate, since south Broadway was absolutely not a dirt road in 1860. Alas, such an intriguing title, such an annoyingly deficient book.
    I read this as an ARC via NetGalley.

    LOW KEY SPLIT: Anthony Mackie Divorced His Wife - His Childhood Sweetheart - LAST YEAR

     Cache   

     photo spl247714_024_zpsea9wktvj.jpg

    Anthony Mackie flew solo to all the Avengers: End Game festivities this past year.  It isn't totally out of the ordinary for him, but this time there was a real reason. He quietly divorced his wife...last year!  Details inside.

     

    Big screen star Anthony Mackie is officially single, seeing that he quietly filed for divorce in 2017 and finalized it just last year.

    According to reports:

     

     

     

     

     

     

    The secrecy makes sense. They kept the birth of their three kids and their 2014 Dominican Republic wedding out of the media as well.

     photo anthony-mackie-girlfriend-wife-Sheletta_Chapital1_zpspye8y4nx.jpg

    The super private New Orleans natives got married back in 2014, but they've been together for what seems like an eternity - they're childhood sweethearts.

    They both seem to be in good spirits. Sheletta is supposedly a housewife and hasn't shared much on her social media, and Anthony's got a lot going on to keep him busy.  The Marvel superhero just started shooting "The Falcon & The Winter Soldier," Marvel’s First Disney+ series.  Plus, he just wrapped The Woman In The Window, hitting theaters May 2020.

    Welp.  That's that.

    San Francisco Looks To Remain Undefeated Vs. Wilson, Seattle

     Cache   

    By TERESA M. WALKER AP Pro Football Writer

    The San Francisco 49ers are the NFL's last undefeated team, while Russell Wilson is making a very strong case for MVP consideration in Seattle.

    Something in the NFC West is about to give.

    The 49ers (8-0) have home-field advantage Monday night and have had 10 days to prepare for Seattle (7-2) in the first of two divisional showdowns between the teams this season. The Seahawks get to wrap up the season hosting San Francisco on Dec. 29. They've already lost twice at home, making a road win now even more crucial in the NFC West.

    The Seahawks maybe, just maybe, got caught looking ahead last week when Tampa Bay forced them to overtime before Wilson finished off the win with his fifth touchdown pass.

    The 49ers just moved to No. 1 in the AP Pro32 poll, with the Seahawks not all that far behind at No. 5. The Niners will counter with Jimmy Garoppolo and a very stingy defense. They're favored by six at home despite having lost nine of the last 10 in this series.

    Staying undefeated in the NFL this late in the season isn't easy. Just ask the Patriots.

    UPSET SPECIAL: SEAHAWKS 31, 49ers 30.

    No. 19 Los Angeles Chargers (minus 1) at No. 16 Oakland

    The Chargers not only have won four straight in this series, they have found something since coach Anthony Lynn fired offensive coordinator KenWhisenhunt. After a big win over Green Bay, not even all the talk about London calling will knock Philip Rivers and Melvin Gordon off target.

    CHARGERS, 24-21

    No. 6 Kansas City (minus 3½) at No. 20 Tennessee

    NFL MVP Patrick Mahomes is expected back. Tennessee has a habit of playing to the level of its competition, but that won't be enough.

    CHIEFS, 33-30

    No. 11 Buffalo (plus 2½) at No. 26 Cleveland

    The Bills play very stingy defense and get what they need from their second-year quarterback. Cleveland has so many pieces, but the Browns can't get enough from their second-year quarterback no matter what cleats his receiversare wearing.

    UPSET SPECIAL: BILLS, 21-17

    No. 22 Arizona (plus 4½) at No. 25 Tampa Bay

    Quarterback Kyler Murray and coach Kliff Kingsbury have the Cardinals far more competitive than expected in their rookie season. Bruce Arians is a much more experienced coach. Better yet, Jameis Winston looks like he's meshing with coordinator Byron Leftwich.

    BUCS, 30-24

    No. 27 New York Giants (minus 2½) at No. 31 New York Jets

    The black cat should be safely tucked away far from the field, and the Giants are being treated as the true home team as the favorite. It's also been longer since the Giants got a much-needed victory.

    GIANTS, 28-24

    KNOCKOUT POOL: Yes! The AP prognostication crew has survived to this point of the season. And yes! It's getting much tougher with nine teams unavailable to find a good bet to stay alive another week. Baltimore would be the easy pick visiting winless Cincinnati, but the Ravens were the Week 6 pick. Indianapolis is very tempting hosting Miami, but FitzMagic is real — until it isn't.

    No. 28 Atlanta (plus 13) visiting No. 2 New Orleans makes the Saints the easy choice, even with both teams coming off their byes.

    SAINTS, 34-20

    No. 4 Baltimore (minus 10) at Cincinnati

    The NFL's last winless team is starting rookie Ryan Finley, which is why Baltimore would have been the knockout pool pick. Instead, this consolation prize.

    BEST BET: RAVENS, 30-14

    No. 14 Carolina (plus 5) at No. 7 Green Bay

    How long will the Packers' LA hangover last? Aaron Rodgers is back home facing Kyle Allen.

    PACKERS: 30-21

    No. 18 Detroit (plus 2 ½) at No. 23 Chicago

    The Lions have a much shorter trip than last week to the West Coast. The Bears have bigger issues on offense.

    LIONS, 20-18

    No. 29 Miami (plus 10 ½) at No. 13 Indianapolis

    Getting one win this season was surprising enough out of the Dolphins.

    COLTS, 28-20

    No. 12 Los Angeles Rams (minus 3½) at No. 17 Pittsburgh

    The Rams are rested thanks to their bye and looking for a third consecutive win. The Steelers have won three straight to climb back to .500, and they're at home.

    RAMS, 26-21

    No. 8 Minnesota (plus 3) at No. 10 Dallas

    Kirk Cousins and Dalvin Cook taking on Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott. The Cowboys are at home.

    COWBOYS, 30-24

    ___

    2019 RECORD:

    Last Week: 7-6 against spread, 9-5 straight up.

    Season Totals: 73-60-1 against spread, 85-48-1 straight up.

    Best Bet: 7-2 against spread, 7-2 straight up.

    Upset special: 5-4 against spread, 5-4 straight up.

    FBI Files: American Politicians, Aides, and Appointees

     Cache   

    It comes as no surprise, as celebrities and gangsters were being watched — so were the politicians.  The following is a list of released records. Document Archive Acheson, Dean [587 Pages, 143MB] – Dean Gooderham Acheson (April 11, 1893 – October 12, 1971) was an American statesman and lawyer. As United States Secretary of State in the administration of President Harry S. Truman from 1949 to 1953, he played a central role in defining American foreign policy during the Cold War. Acheson helped design the Marshall Plan and was a key player in the development of the Truman Doctrine and creation of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. Agnew, Spiro [1,454 Pages, 65.05MB] – Spiro Theodore Agnew (1918-1996) was a Maryland politician and U.S. vice president from 1968 to 1973. He resigned as vice president and later pleaded no contest to tax evasion charges pursued by the IRS; the FBI investigated him for bribery, but he was not prosecuted on that charge. This release consists of FBI records concerning the bribery investigation as well as threats made against Agnew. It ranges between 1969 and 1986 (mostly between 1969 and 1973). Anderson, Wendell [13 Pages, 1.8MB] – Wendell Richard “Wendy” Anderson (February 1, 1933 – July 17, 2016) was an American politician and the 33rd governor of Minnesota, serving from January 4, 1971, to December 29, 1976. In late 1976, he resigned as governor in order to be appointed to the U.S. Senate after Senator Walter Mondale was elected Vice President of the United States. Anderson served in the Senate from December 30, 1976, to December 29, 1978 (after losing the 1978 Senate election to Rudy Boschwitz, he resigned a few days before the end of his term to give Boschwitz seniority). Although the FBI said that files were destroyed relating to Anderson, I did dig up some that were at the National Archives. Bell, George Tillson [115 Pages, 56.5MB] – George T. Bell (January 21, 1913 – March 4, 1973) was a former special assistant to President Richard Nixon. He wrote the Nixon’s Enemies List compiled by Charles Colson. Before joining the President’s staff, Bell worked for General Electric and was later President of Geonautics, Inc., an engineering research company. When questioned about Nixon’s infamous “enemies list,” Colson told the House Subcommittee Investigating the Watergate scandal that the “late George Bell” was responsible for the master list of Nixon political opponents. Bell died in Washington, D.C. following a long illness. Black, Hugo – [ File #1 | File #2 ] – Hugo Black was a U. S. Senator from 1927 until 1937. He was appointed an Associate Supreme Court Justice in 1937 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Shortly before his death in 1971, he resigned from the Supreme Court. The FBI records reflect several threats against Justice Black, as well as cordial correspondence between him and FBI Director Hoover and numerous newspaper articles. Bodman, Samuel [399 Pages, 14MB] – Samuel Wright Bodman III (November 26, 1938 – September 7, 2018) was an American politician, who was the 11th United States Secretary of Energy serving during the George W. Bush administration from 2005 to 2009. He was also at different times the Deputy Secretary of the Treasury and the Deputy Secretary of Commerce. In December 2004, Bodman was nominated to replace Spencer Abraham as the Energy Secretary and was confirmed unanimously by the United States Senate on January 31, 2005. During his tenure, he oversaw the security problems at Los Alamos National Laboratory and a budget in excess of $23 billion and over 100,000 federal and contractor employees. Boggs, Sr., Thomas Hale [399 Pages, 23.9MB] – Thomas Hale Boggs Sr. (February 15, 1914 – presumably October 16, 1972 but not declared dead until January 3, 1973) was an American Democratic politician and a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from New Orleans, Louisiana. He was the House majority leader and a member of the Warren Commission. In 1972, while he was still majority leader, the twin engine airplane in which Boggs was traveling disappeared over a remote section of Alaska. The airplane presumably crashed and was never found. Congressman Nick Begich, of Alaska, was also presumed killed in the same accident. Brady, James [19 Pages, 9.5MB] – James Scott “Jim” Brady (August 29, 1940 – August 4, 2014) was an assistant to the U.S. President and White House Press Secretary under President Ronald Reagan. After nearly being killed and becoming permanently disabled as a result of the attempted assassination of Ronald Reagan in 1981, Brady became an ardent supporter of gun control. On August 8, 2014, Brady’s death was ruled a homicide, 33 years after the gunshot wound he received in 1981. The FBI does admit Brady has a file, but it was either lost or destroyed, and they could not come up with material. The documents listed here is the entire FOIA Case File to show the behind the scenes communications at the FBI attempting to locate the records. Brown, Pat [495 Pages, 33.5MB] FBI Vault Release – Note: PDF File has bookmarks that differentiate the different releases by the FBI. Brown, Pat [74 Pages, 33.5MB] FBI Release #2 (Not on The Vault) – Edmund Gerald “Pat” Brown Sr. (April 21, 1905 – February 16, 1996) was an American politician and lawyer who served as the 32nd Governor of California from 1959 to 1967. Born in San Francisco, Brown had an early interest in speaking and politics; he earned a law degree in 1927, and subsequently began legal practice. As district attorney for San Francisco, he was elected Attorney General of California in 1950 before becoming the state’s governor in 1959. As governor, Brown embarked on massive projects building important infrastructure and redefined the state’s higher education system. While running twice for President in 1960 and 1964, finishing second and first in the primaries, respectively, he was never a serious contender in the national conventions. While losing his bid for a third term in 1966 to future President Ronald Reagan, his legacy earns him regard as the builder of modern California. His son Edmund G. “Jerry”...

    ABB's VGMs help make New Orleans safe

     Cache   
    In the event of a storm surge, three pump stations will be able to quickly move water from the canal system into Lake Ponchartrain.

    Vertical gearmotors are optimal for pumping their smaller physical size reduces the footprint, while bringing the advantages of low-pole motor efficiency and power factor, and greater reliability.

    To prevent the devastation caused by hurricane Katrina in New Orleans 14 years ago from happening again, a new flood control project was implemented. As part of this, vertical gear motors from ABB have been chosen to power the enormous pumps installed.

    Nothing could have prepared New Orleans and its residents for the full-blown disaster that Hurricane Katrina left in her wake some 14 years ago. When the storm surge struck, it overwhelmed many of the city’s unstable levees and drainage canals, flooding more than 80% of the city. In all, Hurricane Katrina killed nearly 2,000 people and affected almost 35,000 km2 of the US.

    In the aftermath, government officials were faced with the challenge to not only rebuild the city, but also foster a sense of security among its devastated residents. Authorities had to win their trust by finding a way to guarantee that such a catastrophe would never happen again along the US Gulf Coast.

    In 2013, the New Orleans Permanent Canal Closures and Pumps (PCCP) project, worth nearly US$615 million, was approved to revamp the city’s three main drainage outfall canals to prevent them from being overwhelmed in future superstorms. The three canals are a critical element of the flood control system, serving as drainage conduits for much of the city.

    Sustainable solution
    Today, the state-of-the-art PCCP comprises permanent gated storm surge barriers and three pump stations situated at the mouth of the 17th Street, Orleans Avenue and London Avenue canals. The PCCP provides a permanent and more sustainable measure for reducing the risk of a 100-year level storm surge entering the outfall canals.

    The enormous Patterson-made pumps are turned by vertical gear motors (VGMs) supplied by ABB. These giant pumps can transfer 50 million liters (11 million gallons) per minute, which is enough to empty out an Olympic-size swimming pool in less than four seconds.

    The pumps will move rainwater out of the canals, around the gates and into Lake Pontchartrain on an emergency basis during storm surges. They are also equipped with a standalone emergency power supply capacity, so that the pumps can operate independently of any public power utility. In total, ABB has installed 17 VGMs distributed over the three pumping stations.

    Ten of these motors boast a mammoth 3,728 kW, 5,000 hp each while the remaining seven are 1,864 kW, 2,500 hp each. They are also fitted with ten ACS5000i and seven ACS1000i medium-voltage variable frequency drives respectively, which enables a cold-start up for the motors should swift action be required.

    Optimal for pumping
    The VGM integrates proven planetary gear technology with a low-pole count motor designed for low-speed vertical pumping applications with high-power requirements. This approach is more efficient than typical pump technologies that utilize high-pole-count motors or right-angle reducers with horizontal motors. Not only is the VGM more cost competitive than other technologies, it’s also smaller and lighter, which meant substantial savings associated with the civil work required at the pump stations.

    The higher power factor delivered by the VGM design ensures more efficient use of electrical power with less reactive power drawn by the system. Utilizing the reducer to accommodate thrust load is also more cost effective than designing this functionality into the motor. Beyond savings, the VGM also provides maximum pump performance. Using the specific gear reduction ratio required for a specific application enables optimized pump speeds to be attained.

    The capability of the VGM to provide the exact output speed makes it possible to lower vibration levels, decrease radial and axial loads, and create optimal discharge pressure. The efficient design also results in improved reliability and reduced maintenance.

    Drainage officials in Jefferson Parish, one of the largest suburbs of New Orleans, use a supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) system, provided by ABB, to predict the amount of rainfall in specific areas and the capacity at which the parish’s pumps are running. This helps the authorities to better understand the possible impact of a storm and forewarn residents about hazards such as falling trees and snapped power lines.

    Many advantages
    Patrick Standley, business development manager, ABB Motors and Generators, said “The 17th Street pump station itself has six 5,000 hp gearmotors, and two 2,500 hp gearmotors. In an emergency we can now move water from the canal system quickly and evacuate it into the lake. ABB is a leader when it comes to manufacturing motors and gearing, and this solution provides so many advantages in terms of capital costs, efficiency and footprint. However, the biggest benefit of all is that it provides real protection to the citizens of New Orleans from floodwaters.”

    While the VGM is an ideal solution for the pump stations, it can also be used for circulating water in power plants, desalination plants, irrigation systems and wastewater pumping systems.

    Maximum Wellness Extra: Transforming Linda Hamilton for Terminator: Dark Fate

     Cache   

    After 43 years of sports performance management — with over 3,000 pro athletes, such as my eleven years with world champion tennis player Serena Williams, sports teams, and since 2012, volunteer work with special forces, it came as a surprise, when I was contacted in April of 2017, by Hollywood producer, director, and innovator James Cameron.

    Cameron wanted me to consider taking on a project consistent with my “so called” reputation of extending careers. Cameron said he wanted to change Hollywood’s mantra of, “throwing female actors away, after the age of forty.” Initially, I wasn’t interested in the project, until he made that comment about discarding human beings based on age. 

    The project involved transforming Linda Hamilton from her present state — yet to be determined — to be able to perform the physical demands of Sarah Connor — the role Hamilton created in Terminators 1&2 — over 28 years ago.

    I was skeptical that Hamilton, 61 when we started, would be able to survive the training long enough to get to the production. That is, until I met her here in New Orleans.

    I informed Cameron that I would accept the project, if Hamilton passed extensive medical and physiological evaluations. Hamilton would then have to survive three weeks of training with me to see if she could hold up under the training stress — both physical and mental. She did. 

    Hamilton’s biggest concern was that the audience would compare her to what she looked like 28 years ago. 

    The studio budget provided for the creation of a home gym to be built in the annex of Hamilton’s home in New Orleans — used for training and any injury related rehabilitation, should one occur.

    The first 12 weeks of work encompassed 6 days per week of 1.5 to 2 hours of circuit training exercises — using a cable weight apparatus with  arms — permitting functional human movement patterns, core training using a stability ball, steady state and interval cardio training on an elliptical device, power training with a specially-designed medicine ball — along with specialized pre-habilitation (injury prevention) exercises based on her biomechanical analysis. 

    Hamilton had two AM/PM additional, scripted, heart rate monitored sessions on the elliptical lasting 45 minutes.  

    Over the remaining 9 months of the one-year project, our training became more functional to her character’s movement, as the script developed — moving to the Newman School football field to emphasize footwork, short sprints, agilities (cone drills), and combative training.

    In Terminator 2 twenty-eight years ago, Hamilton was quite ripped by body building standards, especially in her arms — what I would hear from most women. 

    The potential for muscle and strength loss — accelerated with age — was a big concern.  Understanding the effects of sarcopenia — loss of muscle with age and dynapenia — the associated loss of strength — technology from wound care and my prior experiences,  provided a partial solution — the use of an amino acid blend — arginine, HMB, a metabolite of the anabolic amino acid leucine, and glutamine, among other medically approved nutrients.

    Research also demonstrated that the standard 0.8 grams per kilogram for protein requirements would not begin to address Hamilton’s needs with the associated intense training. Based on DXA scans every six weeks, the daily protein requirement was determined down to the gram, as with my athletes. 

    In one of his last communications, when Cameron was provided with pictures of Hamilton just prior to the project completion, he emailed me to say in the words of Arnold Schwarzenegger before T2, “Linda, you look ripped and shredded.”

    CHEF ISAAC TOUPS HEATS THINGS UP WITH NEW HOT SAUCE LINE

     Cache   

    Two-time finalist for James Beard “Best Chef: South,” Chef Isaac Toups, launches new hot sauce line.

    Smokey Green and Louisiana Liquid Snake Now Available for Sale

    Two-time finalist for James Beard “Best Chef: South,” Chef Isaac Toups exemplifies the new guard of Cajun chefs. Owner of Toups' Meatery and Toups South in New Orleans and author of critically-acclaimed cookbook Chasing the Gator – Isaac Toups & the New Cajun Cooking (Little, Brown and Company), Toups continues to expand his culinary horizons with the launch of his brand new hot sauce line and has just unveiled his first two in the collection: Smokey Green and Louisiana Liquid Snake.

    “It was a natural step for me,” says Toups. “My customers are always asking me for my ‘secret sauce’ and now I’m able to give it to them. Both sauces are versatile enough to use in recipes or on top of dishes and will add a new depth of flavor to home cooking.”

    Available for purchase at both restaurants and online, each sauce encompasses the intense flavor Toups puts into every dish. Smokey Green is big, bold and bodacious. The verde hot sauce is a unique blend of jalapeños, poblanos, garlic, smoked paprika and dashi – a freeze dried Asian fish stock that adds a natural umami to the sauce. Perfect for cooking, the sauce lends a smokiness and acidity with just the right amount of heat. Use it in gumbo to add a smoky, bright flavor.  

    Louisiana Liquid Snake is the quintessential hot hot sauce; red in color and big in flavor. Using red wine vinegar, lots of garlic, salt, sugar and cayenne pepper, this snake sauce definitely has a bite! Toups says, “A little bit goes a long way. This sauce packs some serious heat and is not for the faint of heart.” Add to collard greens and dirty rice for an added kick.

    Priced at $10 per bottle or 2 for $18; Toups’ hot sauces can be purchased online at https://toupsmeatery.bigcartel.com/products or at both New Orleans restaurants: Toups Meatery, 845 North Carrollton Avenue and Toups South, 1504 Oretha Castle Haley. Just in time for the holidays, guests can purchase a gift package featuring two sauces and a signed copy of his book, Chasing the Gator – Isaac Toups & the New Cajun Cooking, named one of the best cookbooks by both The New York Times and Southern Living, for $50. Gift packages are limited so buy early.

    Check out some of Chef Toups’ recipes using the hot sauces at: Toups Recipes

    Two-time finalist for James Beard “Best Chef: South,” Chef Isaac Toups, launches new hot sauce line.

    Smokey Green and Louisiana Liquid Snake Now Available for Sale

    Two-time finalist for James Beard “Best Chef: South,” Chef Isaac Toups exemplifies the new guard of Cajun chefs. Owner of Toups' Meatery and Toups South in New Orleans and author of critically-acclaimed cookbook Chasing the Gator – Isaac Toups & the New Cajun Cooking (Little, Brown and Company), Toups continues to expand his culinary horizons with the launch of his brand new hot sauce line and has just unveiled his first two in the collection: Smokey Green and Louisiana Liquid Snake.

    “It was a natural step for me,” says Toups. “My customers are always asking me for my ‘secret sauce’ and now I’m able to give it to them. Both sauces are versatile enough to use in recipes or on top of dishes and will add a new depth of flavor to home cooking.”

    Available for purchase at both restaurants and online, each sauce encompasses the intense flavor Toups puts into every dish. Smokey Green is big, bold and bodacious. The verde hot sauce is a unique blend of jalapeños, poblanos, garlic, smoked paprika and dashi – a freeze dried Asian fish stock that adds a natural umami to the sauce. Perfect for cooking, the sauce lends a smokiness and acidity with just the right amount of heat. Use it in gumbo to add a smoky, bright flavor.  

    Louisiana Liquid Snake is the quintessential hot hot sauce; red in color and big in flavor. Using red wine vinegar, lots of garlic, salt, sugar and cayenne pepper, this snake sauce definitely has a bite! Toups says, “A little bit goes a long way. This sauce packs some serious heat and is not for the faint of heart.” Add to collard greens and dirty rice for an added kick.

    Priced at $10 per bottle or 2 for $18; Toups’ hot sauces can be purchased online at https://toupsmeatery.bigcartel.com/products or at both New Orleans restaurants: Toups Meatery, 845 North Carrollton Avenue and Toups South, 1504 Oretha Castle Haley. Just in time for the holidays, guests can purchase a gift package featuring two sauces and a signed copy of his book, Chasing the Gator – Isaac Toups & the New Cajun Cooking, named one of the best cookbooks by both The New York Times and Southern Living, for $50. Gift packages are limited so buy early.

    Check out some of Chef Toups’ recipes using the hot sauces at: Toups Recipes

    Review by Tom McCarter

    Reviewed: 2019-11-05
    Genre: General

    Review: Vocalist Anel’s music is a hybrid of jazz, folk, soul and pop combined with a powerfully unique vocal style. Her voice, by turns rapturous and confessional, runs poetic rings around you, as the music undulates and churns. The result is pure feeling over pristine chops on nine heartfelt tracks.

    FINALS UPDATE: NCIS: New Orleans (0.6) adjusted down.

    WHAT MATTERS:
    • ABC got an extraordinary performance out of The Little Mermaid Live! (2.6), the biggest showing for one of these live musical events in raw numbers since Grease Live! (4.3) in early 2016. On an A18-49+ basis, it should easily top Grease (which had a 295ish) and become the biggest one of these on record. But it provided only a two-tenth boost for rookie drama Emergence (0.7) at 10/9c.
    • Against the big event, the competition had a mixed to negative night. NBC's The Voice (1.3) actually managed a rebound, but dramas This Is Us (1.3) and New Amsterdam (0.7) inched down.
    • CBS was down a tick with NCIS (1.0) but even later in the night (0.8/0.7), while Fox was steady with The Resident (0.7) but down again with Empire (0.7). The CW's The Flash (0.4) and Arrow (0.2) also dropped a tenth.

    January 11 - January 26
    HOW TO LOAD A MUSKET written by Talene Monahon, directed by Jaki Bradley
    With cast TBA
    Produced by Less Than Rent Theatre
    Tickets: $25 ($20 for 59E59 Members)
    On sale now!

    Every year, across the country, thousands of historical reenactors stage the bloodiest, most divisive battles fought on American soil. Pursuing total authenticity, they fire muskets, chew hard-tack, and wear handmade period clothing in brutal weather. Playwright Talene Monahon began interviewing reenactors in 2015, spending time with Revolutionary War units in Massachusetts and New York before making her way down South to speak to the reenactors of the Civil War. Woven from these verbatim conversations, HOW TO LOAD A MUSKET explores this unique and all-consuming hobby and the people who practice it as they find themselves caught in the crosshairs of a national battle over how history is told.

    February 6 - February 23
    THE COMMONS by Lily Akerman, directed by Emma Miller
    With cast TBA
    Produced by The Hearth
    Tickets: $25 ($20 for 59E59 Members)

    Missing almonds, empty apologies, and a pizza box in the recycling bin that clearly belongs in the trash. When space is at a premium, there's no room for weak links. The Commons is a play about living with strangers and the things that seem small until they aren't.

    Following their critically acclaimed production Athena in 2018, The Hearth continue their commitment of nurturing the next generation of female artists with this world premiere by Lily Akerman.

    February 11 - March 8
    THE SABBATH GIRL by Cary Gitter, directed by Joe Brancato
    With cast TBD
    Produced by Penguin Rep
    Tickets: $25 - $35 ($26 for 59E59 Members)

    Angie Mastrantoni has a lot going for her: a job at a hip art gallery; a new apartment on the Upper West Side. But not much time or hope for relationships. Then her neighbor Seth, a divorced Orthodox Jew with a knish store on the Lower East Side, knocks on her door.

    A brand new romantic comedy written by Cary Gitter, a two-time O'Neill semifinalist and Jewish Plays Project finalist, THE SABBATH GIRL explores the loneliness of big-city life and the possibility of finding love next door.

    February 28 - March 15
    MR. TOOLE by Vivian Neuwirth, directed by Cat Parker
    With Linda Purl, Ryan Spahn, Lou Libertore, Stephen Schnetzer, and John Ingle
    Produced Articulate Theatre Company, in association with Lagniappe Productions
    Tickets: $25 ($20 for 59E59 Members)

    The teacher a student will never forget becomes a legend the world will always remember.

    Award-winning playwright Vivian Neuwirth creates a deeply personal reflection on the life of John Kennedy Toole, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, A Confederacy of Dunces.

    Before he was an author, John Kennedy Toole was a teacher. That's how Lisette, one of his students at an all-girls college in New Orleans knew him and loved him. Through her eyes, amid the music, magic, and mystery of the Big Easy we, too, learn to love "Mr. Toole."

    March 12- April 19
    Press Opening: Tuesday, March 24 at 7 pm
    WHISPER HOUSE music & lyrics by Duncan Sheik, book & lyrics by Kyle Jarrow, directed by Steve Cosson
    With a cast TBD
    Produced by The Civilians, in association with 59E59 Theaters
    Tickets: $25 - $70 ($49 for 59E59 Members)

    An eerie lighthouse stands on the remote coast of Maine at the height of World War II. After losing his parents, young Christopher is sent there to live with his aunt Lily, whom he's never met, and Yasuhiro, the Japanese man who works for her. Soon Christopher begins to hear strange music seeping through the walls. Is his imagination getting the better of him? Or are there ghosts here, warning of real danger? Then the whispers become something louder...

    Written by Grammy and Tony winner Duncan Sheik (Spring Awakening, America Psycho) and Tony-nominated and Obie winner Kyle Jarrow (Spongebob Squarepants, The Broadway Musical, The Wildness) and directed by The Civilians' Artistic Director Steve Cosson, WHISPER HOUSE combines a lush original score with a haunting story of loss, love, and forgiveness.

    March 18 - April 5
    BAROCOCO directed by Mark Jaster and Sabrina Selma Mandell, devised by Happenstance Theater
    With Gwen Grastorf, Caleb Jaster, Mark Jaster, Sabrina Selma Mandell, Sarah Olmsted Thomas, and Alex Vernon
    Produced by Happenstance Theater
    Tickets: $25 - $35 ($26 for 59E59 Members)

    BAROCOCO dives into the late Baroque and flaunts 18th-century finery, wigs, panniers, gestural styling, elaborate ornamentation and the excesses of Rococo in this unique physical comedy. A charming and charismatic six-person ensemble exposes an indulgent aristocratic lifestyle precariously perched on the edge of its extinction. Happenstance Theater invites you to experience the charade - from parlor games to pantomime, from the exquisite to the revolting - in this delightful comedy of manners.

    March 26 - April 12

    Innovation in the Delta

     Cache   
    Over at The Bitter Southerner is a well-written and positive piece about how gas stations have managed to survive in the rural Mississippi Delta -- by addressing the need for restaurants and small grocery stores in a region that unimaginative "activists" and government bureaucrats know only as a "food desert:"
    Image by Nsaum75, via Wikimedia Commons, license.
    Other nearby operations have adjusted their business model to service both a hungry crowd and those needing fuel. Spend one day traveling the two-lane highways of the Mississippi Delta and you will undoubtedly come upon one of some 50 Double Quick stores scattered throughout the region. With nearly a century under their belt in the petroleum business, the Gresham family, owners of the Double Quick chain, have learned to accommodate the near-constant fluctuation in gas prices by operating these shops as full-fledged restaurants and occasional grocery stores.

    "We tend to think of ourselves as a food destination first, that just happens to sell fuel," says Damon Crawford, director of marketing for Double Quick. Customers in search of fried chicken tend to agree.
    And it's not all fried chicken: The combination of variety and quality in unexpected places reminds me a little of the first time I read about some of the hole-in-the-wall establishments described by the late Richard Collin in The New Orleans Underground Gourmet as a teen. A short list ranges the gamut from a particularly inspired take on the moon pie (not for me, but still), through boudin sausage, to Indian cuisine.

    As a native Mississippian, it wasn't the quality or variety of what was available so much as where it was showing up that surprised me. But I grew up in Jackson, and am not very familiar with that part of the state, despite the fact that my father's side of the family comes from there.

    But, should I happen to go through there, I look forward to making a stop or two for the food.

    Háromszoros Grammy-díjas énekes, Cécile McLorin Salvant a Müpában

     Cache   
    Három évvel és két lemezzel később, immár háromszoros Grammy-díjasként tér vissza Budapestre Cécile McLorin Salvant. A 30 éves amerikai dzsesszdíva ezúttal Sullivan Fortner New Orleans-i zongoristával duettben lép fel november 18-án a Bartók Béla Nemzeti Hangversenyteremben.

    Cécile McLorin Salvant 2010-ben megnyerte a Thelonious Monk Jazzversenyt, albumai azóta mind a közönség, mind a szakma körében egyöntetűen kedvező fogadtatásra találtak - közölte a Müpa az MTI-vel. Az énekesnőt gyermekkora óta körülvette a zene, a művészet és a pezsdítő kulturális közeg: édesapja haiti származású, édesanyja Tunéziában született, de francia, guadeloupe-i és amerikai gyökerekkel rendelkezett. Négyéves korában már zongoraleckéket vett, nyolcévesen pedig klasszikus zenét és éneklést tanult, majd tizennyolc évesen felvételt nyert a dél-franciaországi Darius Milhaud Konzervatóriumba, ahol a szaxofonos Jean-François Bonnel hatására került intimebb kapcsolatba a dzsessz műfajával. Hangjától és előadásmódjától el voltak ragadtatva a kritikusok, a The New York Times egyenesen Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan és Ella Fitzgerald utódjának kiáltotta ki. 2013-ban jelent meg első saját albuma, a WomanChild, amely rögtön Grammy-jelölést hozott. A két év múlva, 2015-ben kiadott For One to Love című koronggal be is gyűjtötte a díjat, ezt követte a 2017-es Dreams and Daggers és a tavaly megjelent The Window, amelyekért szintén hazavihette a legjobb vokális dzsesszalbumnak járó arany gramofont.

    WEEKEND EVENTS ON STATEN ISLAND (11/6-11/11/19)

     Cache   
    Did you take advantage of the warm albeit rainy weather this past week? It was hard for the kiddies to go Trick or Treating with the intermittent rain, but they did get a reprieve with the heat and were able go out later in the day without coats.

One of my gentle readers, Diane--a fit, healthy, energetic grandmother of four who works out every day to remain so shared photos of a 10-mile hike she took through the Staten Island Greenbelt with Protectors of Pine Oak Woods. She added the following, “Having just celebrated another birthday recently, I can happily say that this gal’s still got her hiking legs... but oh my aching feet... and it was still worth every mile” I am so inspired by Diane and wish her well in her goal to stay happy and healthy.    People ask me, “How can I receive the “Weekend Events” blog.

The hypocritical Angelo propositions her instead, leaving Isabella with an impossible choice: save her soul or her brother’s life.

    USA | Jagt den Klimaleugner aus dem Weißen Haus!

     Cache   
    Der nächste Präsident muss dem Pariser Klimaabkommen wieder beitreten und der Welt zeigen, dass die USA bereit sind, beim Klimaschutz eine führende Rolle zu übernehmen
    Jagt den Klimaleugner aus dem Weißen Haus!

    Präsident Trump hat sein verhängnisvolles Versprechen, die Vereinigten Staaten aus dem Pariser Klimaabkommen herauszuholen, nun erfüllt. Dieses Abkommen ist das Ergebnis jahrzehntelanger Arbeit sowohl demokratischer als auch republikanischer Regierungen, um ein gemeinsames Ziel zu erreichen: alle Länder der Welt zusammenzubringen, um die Klimakrise, die existenzielle Bedrohung unserer Zeit, zu bewältigen.

    Trump überraschte niemanden mit seiner Entscheidung, sich aus dem Abkommen zurückzuziehen. Es ist eine weitere rücksichtslose Entscheidung im Einklang mit seinen bisherigen Bemühungen, unsere Umweltgesetze, die seit Jahrzehnten unser Wasser und unsere Luft sauber halten, zurückzunehmen. Das schmälert nicht die Ausmaße seines letzten Vorstoßes. Trump gibt nicht nur die amerikanische Führung im Kampf gegen den Klimawandel an einem kritischen Punkt ab, sondern verschenkt auch amerikanische Arbeitsplätze in der sauberen Energiewirtschaft der Zukunft – und verzichtet auf die größte wirtschaftliche Chance unserer Zeit.

    Die Wissenschaft ist sich einig: Die Kosten des Klimawandels sind noch höher, als wir dachten. In der Tat, ein Bericht, der letztes Jahr von Trumps eigener Regierung veröffentlicht wurde, ergab, dass der Klimawandel bis zum Ende des Jahrhunderts die amerikanische Wirtschaft jedes Jahr Hunderte von Milliarden Dollar und Tausende von Menschenleben kosten wird. In den USA spüren wir bereits die Auswirkungen der Untätigkeit – stärkere Waldbrände in Kalifornien, Rekordüberflutungen im Mittleren Westen und verheerende Hurrikans von Houston bis New Orleans. Die globalen Risiken sind noch größer: Der Klimawandel lässt bereits instabile Regierungen noch instabiler werden, schürt internationale Konflikte und schafft Klimaflüchtlinge auf der ganzen Welt. Darüber hinaus breiten sich Krankheiten in neue Teile der Welt aus und kosten immer mehr Menschenleben. Von Jahr zu Jahr richtet die Klimakrise mehr Unheil an.

    Doch anstatt Menschenleben zu schützen und gut bezahlte Arbeitsplätze zu schaffen, haben wir die Klimapolitik in Washington von großen Ölkonzernen bestimmen lassen. Diese Unternehmen haben drei Jahrzehnte lang die Öffentlichkeit im Hinblick auf die Klimakrise getäuscht sowie Lügen und Fehlinformationen durch ihre Lobbyisten verbreitet. Mit Donald Trump im Weißen Haus haben sie jetzt einen Klimaverweigerer an der Spitze.

    Wir scheuen nicht den Kampf

    Präsident Trump hausiert weiterhin mit Lügen über die Klimakrise, während er große Umweltverschmutzer wieder dazu bringt, unsere Luft und unser Wasser zu vergiften. Er behauptet zu Unrecht, dass die Einhaltung des Pariser Abkommens die Amerikaner „Milliarden Dollar kosten und Millionen von Arbeitsplätzen gefährden“ würde, „ohne dass eine sinnvolle Reduzierung der Emissionen stattfinden“ würde. Nichts könnte weiter von der Wahrheit entfernt sein. Die Weltbank schätzt, dass das Pariser Abkommen in den nächsten zehn Jahren eine Investitionsmöglichkeit von 23 Milliarden US-Dollar in den 20 wichtigsten Entwicklungsländern geschaffen hat. Da sich diese Länder in Richtung 100 Prozent sauberer Energie bewegen und andere Länder der Welt es ihnen gleich tun, werden die Märkte für Amerikas Innovationen im Bereich der sauberen Energien weiter wachsen.

    Mein Green Manufacturing Plan wird die Entwicklung sauberer Energien hier in den Vereinigten Staaten vorantreiben. Mit Investitionen von zwei Milliarden Dollar, um saubere Energien im In- und Ausland zu fördern, und gleichzeitig Millionen neuer, gut bezahlter Arbeitsplätze schaffen. Und mein Green Marshall Plan würde Ländern im Ausland unmittelbar helfen, saubere Energieprodukte aus den USA zu kaufen, was die Märkte für umweltfreundliche Produktion weiter vergrößern würde.

    Die nächste Präsidentin der USA muss dem Pariser Abkommen wieder beitreten, doch das allein reicht nicht. Sie muss der Welt zeigen, dass die Vereinigten Staaten bereit sind, auf der internationalen Bühne wieder eine Führungsrolle zu übernehmen. Der erste Schritt besteht darin, eine neue Verpflichtungserklärung der USA im Rahmen von Paris einzureichen, mit der wir unser bisheriges Ziel – eine schnelle Emissionsreduzierung – erhöhen. Ich habe einen Plan dafür. Als nächstes müssen wir andere Nationen wie China und Indien dazu ermutigen, diesen Kampf mit uns zu führen. Und der Klimaschutz muss ein wichtiges Prinzip in der amerikanischen Diplomatie sein. Das bedeutet: Egal ob es sich um die Aushandlung neuer Handelsabkommen oder die Bewältigung von Sicherheitsbedrohungen handelt – meine Regierung würde die Auswirkungen des Klimawandels berücksichtigen, wenn wir außenpolitische Entscheidungen treffen.

    Die Welt steht vor einer der größten Bedrohungen, denen wir je begegnet sind. Aber US-Amerikaner entziehen sich keinem Kampf. Wir führen ihn an. Im November 2020 wird nicht nur Donald Trump zur Abstimmung stehen, sondern auch die Chance, die amerikanische Klimaführerschaft für eine sicherere, sauberere, sicherere und wohlhabendere Zukunft zu erneuern.

    Crime and Incarceration

    The article about Elizabeth Hinton (“Color and Incarceration,” by Lydialyle Gibson, September-October, page 40) included an observation by Hinton when she visited a loved one inside a California prison and saw “all these black and brown families.” I work for the Anti-Recidivism Coalition (ARC), dedicated to helping incarcerated men and women successfully transition back into society and reform our criminal justice system. I have walked into numerous prisons in California, which has one of the world’s largest prison systems. Each time I step into one of these institutions, my breath is taken away by the image of a sea of black and brown bodies in oversized blue prison uniforms, slowly pacing these prison yards in a fog of hopelessness.

    I’ve also seen how education can help break through this fog. Sam Lewis, ARC’s executive director, often speaks with me about how education dramatically changed his life during his 24 years of incarceration in a California prison. I applaud and second Hinton’s call for Harvard to invest in prison education. Education is and will continue to be critical in developing the leadership of those most impacted by our justice system. As an alum, I would love to see Harvard lead in this effort.

    Bikila Ochoa, Ph.D. ’09

    Speak Up, Please

    Harvard Magazine welcomes letters on its contents. Please write to “Letters,” Harvard Magazine, 7 Ware Street, Cambridge 02138, or send comments by email to yourturn@harvard.edu.

     

    Hinton’s critique of our criminal justice system, and her call for policy reform, are compelling and convincing. But aside from a few casual references, the article ignores an essential dimension of the story: the victims. It is as if none of the incarcerated had committed an offense graver than possession of recreational drugs. Yet in many if not most cases, the victims of crime are from the same disadvantaged socioeconomic, racial, or ethnic groups as the perpetrators. Moreover, victim compensation, sometimes in lieu of incarceration, should be a key element of humane and effective offender rehabilitation.

    In portraying the perpetrators as the victims, the author airbrushes the real victims out of the story. Truly, justice is blind.

    Andrew Sorokowski, A.M. ’75
    Rockville, Md.

    The article was disappointing because it left out an important part of the story. Gibson overlooked James Forman Jr.’s book, Locking Up Our Own, subtitled Crime and Punishment in Black America, which won the Pulitzer Prize for general nonfiction in 2018. I am interested in the topic because I have been a criminal defense lawyer for most of my career, beginning in 1981.

    The article sums up Hinton’s book as:

    [telling] the story of how federal policies—shaped by presidential administrations and endorsed by Congress—ratcheted up surveillance and punishment in black urban neighborhoods from the 1960s through the 1980s, how criminalization was steadily expanded, and how all of this was driven by deeply held assumptions about the cultural and behavioral inferiority of black Americans.

    Gibson overlooks the most important point of Locking Up Our Own: that “amid a surge in crime and drug addiction,” black mayors, judges, and police chiefs who took office in the 1970s, “fearing that the gains of the civil rights movement were being undermined by lawlessness, embraced tough-on-crime measures, including longer sentences and aggressive police tactics” (as the dust jacket puts it). Those officials responded to the demands of black people to do something about the crime in their neighborhoods.

    There were big changes in the late 1980s with the advent of the federal sentencing guidelines. Drug cases, even for small amounts of illegal drugs, were prosecuted in federal court instead of state court to take advantage of long mandatory minimum sentences. While many black people were sentenced to prison for crimes involving crack cocaine in urban areas, white people were imprisoned for methamphetamine offenses in rural areas.

    ~The Editors

     

    In effect, our country decided to treat illegal drug possession and sales as a criminal-justice problem instead of a public-health challenge. Many public officials, black and white, were making decisions with the best of intentions that resulted in what is now called mass incarceration. Fear of crime motivated all races to do something. I hope Hinton is telling the whole story to her classes about how we got to now.

    Patrick Deaton, M.P.A. ’87
    St. Louis

    The statistics are painfully clear: 50 percent of U.S. murders are committed by 6 percent of our population, black males. A very high violent crime rate in black communities requires police presence to (a) protect potential victims, mostly black, and (b) deter more serious crime. But Hinton concludes that history and white racism are to blame for black crime and imprisonment. Are we to believe that the black community bears no responsibility for its behavior?

    Richard Merlo ’57
    Elkin, N.C.

    “Color and Incarceration” tells a tragic story. To the extent Hinton’s and others’ research in this field defines the problems to be solved, it is useful. This past August 30, Norfolk, Virginia’s, black police chief said, after a bloody week in which 10 people were shot and 5 killed, he is forming a committee to address the public-health crisis of young black men and gun violence the in the same way that they look at the opioid crisis. This means looking at poverty, education, and children regularly witnessing and being victims of gun violence. Black men are either suspect or victim in 93 percent of shootings in Norfolk, often both.

    The chief said those demographics have persisted throughout his 30-year career. Black men were victims in 71 percent of the 450 homicides from 2006 to 2017. In the 320 killings in which police arrested someone, that suspect was black 78 percent of the time. He has been saying to groups: Guns are everywhere, shooters are getting younger, and Norfolk residents aren’t energized enough.

    The racial makeup of Norfolk is : 47.1 percent white; 43.1 percent African American; 0.5 percent Native American; 3.3 percent Asian; 0.2 percent Pacific Islander; 2.2 percent other races; and 3.6 percent two or more races. Hispanics or Latinos of any race were 6.6 percent.

    Where are the calls for Pareto analyses and research that help will help us set things right?

    Professor Elizabeth Hinton seems to view poverty and racial oppression as the underlying causes of violent crime.

    The homicide offending rate for blacks in St. Louis is about 116 per 100,000 (https://www.slmpd.org/images/2018_Homicide_Stats_for_Website.pdf). This is 13 times the rate of 9 per 100,000 in New York City (https://www1.nyc.gov/assets/nypd/downloads/pdf/analysis_and_planning/yea....). The poverty rate in St. Louis is 23 percent, versus 19 percent in New York City.

    New York City’s overall homicide rate declined from 31 per 100,000 in 1990 to 3.4 per 100,000 in 2018. Its poverty rate was 19 percent in both years.

    Varying levels of poverty and racial oppression do not explain the homicide offending rate for blacks being 13 times higher in St. Louis than in New York City or the 90 percent decline in New York City’s homicide rate since 1990. What does?

    Elizabeth Hinton has done valuable research, but the her book From the War on Poverty to the War on Crime and the article give a misleading picture of the origin of the dramatic growth in our prison population. Chronological plots of crime statistics from Baltimore* and Massachusetts offer a better picture of what happened (*FBI UCR Crime data from a student research project led by me at George Mason University [in preparation]).

     A combination of factors including rise in drug use and other developments in the 1960s led to a huge surge in crime nationwide. This ultimately led to a bipartisan-supported increase in police resources and stiffening of sentencing that peaked with the 1994 Violent Crime Control Act. The Baltimore plot suggests it had major effect in reducing crime. 

    Blacks bore the brunt of increased incarceration because higher percentages lived in poverty-burdened neighborhoods that are breeding grounds for crime. The anti-crime movement overreacted—a typical American behavior—but was fundamentally motivated against lawlessness, not a vendetta against African Americans.

    Angela Davis

    Harvard Magazine’s hagiographic paean to Angela Davis (“Revisiting Angela Davis,” the sidebar to “Color and Incarceration,” September-October, page 44) at least does touch on reality by noting a few of the details of her part in a horrible terrorist murder in the 1970s. Too bad the tone about that incident is so forgiving and low key.

    However, to then pass off her totalitarian sympathies by simply saying she was a “member” of the Communist Party is an outrageous evasion. She was the vice presidential candidate of the American Communist Party twice, supported the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia in 1968, and was awarded the Lenin Peace Prize in 1979 in Moscow. It’s nice that Davis cares, or says she does, about prisoners in this country. However, when Czech dissident Jeri Pelikan publicly called on her to defend his imprisoned dissident comrades, she refused. When Alan Dershowitz asked her to support Eastern bloc political prisoners, she told him that “they are all Zionist fascists and opponents of socialism.” Which of course calls attention to her strong support for the anti-Zionist BDS movement, which aims to dismantle the Jewish homeland.

    Angela Davis is a thoroughly reprehensible extreme leftist and a hypocrite when it comes to prisoners’ rights. It is a shame that such a puff piece on her made it into your pages, and it is a disgrace for Harvard to have anything to do with glorifying or honoring her.

    Jonathan Burack ’64
    East Lansing, Mich.

    In “Revisiting Angela Davis,” on the exciting, upcoming exhibit from the papers of Angela Davis recently acquired by the Schlesinger Library, there is a questionable characterization of the “attack on the Marin County Courthouse” in 1970 that resulted in her arrest and trial on multiple charges related to this event.

    Often referred to as the August 7 Revolt or Rebellion, the courthouse action was initiated by Jonathan Jackson, the younger brother of George Jackson, who was the most influential of the radical black prisoners referred to as the Soledad Brothers after being accused of the murder of a guard in the California state prison of that name. The sidebar states that the courthouse action was “intended to free the Soledad Brothers but instead left four people dead…,” a claim that was actually used by the prosecution in her trial to support the argument that Davis’s personal relationship with George Jackson was the principal motive for her involvement with the incident. The prosecution could not present definitive evidence for this claim, as detailed in Davis’s Autobiography, describing the cross-examination of chief prosecutor Albert Harris by the defense on that point. The implication that the four deaths resulting from the action were attributable to the brutality of Jackson and three militant prisoners during that incident was also contested in the cross-examination. Jonathan Jackson, prisoners James McClain and William Christmas, and Judge Haley were shot and killed inside a van by San Quentin guards in line with the policy at that time that all escapes must be prevented, even if the killing of hostages might be involved.

    Bureau of Study Counsel

    We are the five living former directors and associate directors of the Bureau of Study Counsel (BSC), representing nearly a half-century (1971-2019) of the BSC’s existence since its founding in the mid 1940s. We are concerned about the characterizations of the bureau offered as justification for its closing (“Bureau of Study Counsel, R.I.P.”; harvardmag.com/bsc-to-arc-19). We appreciate the magazine’s recognition that something important to students’ educational experience will likely be lost (“A Chill in the Air?” September-October, page 5). In our direct and extensive experiences of the BSC, we know it as an office that is deeply committed to an educational mission and model and that has continuously evolved to support the learning and developmental needs of an ever-changing student population.

    The primary mission of the BSC has always been educational. BSC services have helped students sharpen their academic skills (reading, time management, problem-solving) with the broader goal of helping each student develop an independent mind that can, among other things, take thoughtful perspective on sources of knowledge and authority; reckon with complexity and uncertainty; generate and evaluate new possibilities; engage difficult endeavors with rigor and purpose; and weigh choices and consequences against deeply considered values. These capabilities are central to the College’s mission and the aims of a liberal arts and sciences education and are as relevant today as they were in the post-World War II era of the BSC’s founding.

    When the College hired a new director in 2005, it expressly reconfirmed the BSC’s mission as an academic support office, not a mental-health service—a clarification that was necessary given that Harvard had moved oversight of the BSC to the University Health Services the previous year (a shift which the BSC counselors at that time cautioned against). In 2015, the staff welcomed the move back to the College as a renewed endorsement of the BSC’s original and continuing focus on learning and development.

    During the last few decades, at Harvard and beyond, the term “mental health” has slipped almost unquestioned into everyday parlance and has become overly applied to human experience, including the inherently personal and emotional aspects of education and learning. The best educational/developmental support welcomes the rich complex whole of students’ experience of learning. Although such support—including that offered by the BSC—is appropriately informed by the fields of psychology and neuroscience, it is not mental-health treatment.

    Listening closely to students’ experiences of learning has helped the BSC staff identify and bring early attention to emerging educational issues and trends—often long in advance of these becoming College priorities—including diversity, inclusion, and belonging in the University; plagiarism and academic integrity; academic stress and resilience; the role of technology in the college experience; and the value of a holistic approach to learning and development. The BSC has a longstanding record of hiring diverse staff from the fields of education and psychology as well as a history of drawing upon and contributing to evolving models and materials in the field of student learning and development.

    For over 70 years the BSC has provided an educational setting in which students from every background have found the practical support, illuminating perspectives, and personal courage needed to engage in transformational learning. We five educators who lived and led two-thirds of the BSC’s long history are grateful to have been a part of such an innovative and inclusive learning service dedicated to promoting the intellectual and ethical development of our students.

    Climate Change

    In an essay on “Climate Change” [President Lawrence S. Bacow’s regular letter to readers, September-October, page 3], it is stated that “The scientific consensus is by now clear:” Convenient, because there is not a word in the article to support this so-called science. Nor is there any mention that carbon dioxide, a small fraction of one-half of 1 percent of the earth’s atmosphere, is essential for plant life, and so for all life on earth—including us. One shudders to think how long life could “flourish” in this academically ideal “decarbonized future.”

    Of course, the “scientific consensus” on the structure of the universe was settled by Ptolemy, creation by the Bible, gravity by Newton—until someone like Galileo, or Darwin, or Einstein, with the imagination and courage to challenge consensus, follow-the-crowd thinking came along. One hopes for something better from a major university. Nullius in verba.

    William J. Jones, J.D. ’60
    Warren, N.J.

    Editor’s note: The nearly universal scientific consensus, worldwide and among Harvard experts, is that increased man-made emissions of heat-trapping gases such as carbon dioxide and methane are accelerating the warming of the planet and climate change—as has been scientifically predicted for decades. No one disputes that plants use carbon dioxide. Decarbonization refers to reducing man-made emissions from combusting fossil fuels, burning forests, and so on—not to changing the natural chemistry of the atmosphere. The magazine’s extensive coverage of these issues is searchable online at www.harvardmagazine.com; the president’s letter is about University affairs from his perspective, not an article or a report summarizing the underlying science.

     

    I read with admiration and sadness the Undergraduate column by Isa Flores-Jones ’19, who writes of the disempowerment she felt as a climate activist trying, in vain, to convince Harvard to divest its holdings from oil and gas companies before her graduation (“Movement Ecology,” September-October, page 35). As Undergraduate columnist from 1985 to 1987, I well remember the “Divest Now” balloon tethered to my and many classmates’ graduation mortar boards—referring not to the University’s fossil-fuel assets, but to holdings in companies doing business with then-apartheid South Africa.

    Then, as now, the Overseers made student activists feel they had no agency. As Flores-Jones describes: they listened politely, acknowledged students’ quaint idealism, and disclaimed any power to change the status quo. Affirmation and moral conviction came, instead, from afar: a graduation-day phone call from Archbishop Desmond Tutu to student movement leaders, assuring them their efforts would matter in the end. And matter they did.

    Although the lesson of history is that we don’t learn from history, the denouement of the present divestment story seems particularly obvious. Couldn’t Harvard simply cut to the finish, and show that America’s most powerful institutions can occasionally be leaders rather than laggards?

    I write to challenge President Bacow’s call for a “decarbonized future.” While all scientists agree that the earth has warmed and is still warming since the end of the Little Ice Age in 1850, there is no “consensus” that anthropogenic carbon dioxide (CO2) is the cause of either past or future warming. See, e.g., www.PetitionProject.org, where 31,487 scientists expressly dispute the “consensus” to which President Bacow erroneously refers. In my view, the current climate-change hysteria is based solely upon the projections of several dozen relatively crude and defective computer climate models. All of those models assume their own conclusion that: current and future anthropogenic CO2 will “cause” the glaciers to melt, the seas to rise, and shorelines to disappear. I liken the scary predictions of those modelers to the Wizard of Oz. President Obama has appropriately disregarded all of that CO2 hysteria and recently purchased his dream home on the immediate shoreline of Martha’s Vineyard Island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. He obviously has no fear of future sea-level rise.

    Ten years ago, two distinguished German physicists destroyed the modelers’ unsupported CO2 hypothesis (see “Falsification of the Atmospheric CO2 Greenhouse Effects Within the Frame of Physics,” by Gerhard Gerlich and Ralf D. Tscheuschner, Int.J.Mod.Phys.B, vol. 23, no. 3, 2009). Since that time, no physicist at Harvard, or any other institution, has even attempted, much less succeeded, in showing that Gerlich and Tscheuschner’s falsification of the “anthropogenic CO2 warming hypothesis” is scientifically incorrect. Because there is no valid scientific evidence that the “anthropogenic CO2 warming hypothesis” has any basis in physics and/or the real world, there is obviously no need to put the entire world through the unimaginable and impossible task of “decarbonization.”

    Don W. Crockett, J.D. ’66
    Washington, D.C.

    President Bacow in his essay says, “If the future is our genuine concern, we must face up to the stark reality of climate change.” He proceeds to tout Harvard’s “research, education, and engagement” but refers to the reasonable demand that Harvard act on its principles by divesting from its fossil-fuel investments only by noting that the debate about divestment “will no doubt continue.” What is he waiting for? How long can Harvard continue to urge its employees and students to recycle their cups while avoiding taking the ethical step—and showing true leadership among universities—by divesting? And he doesn’t even mention the advocacy for Harvard to divest from its investments in prisons, which are huge parts of a greedy and profoundly racist and classist set of enterprises.

    Relative to the health of Mother Earth, the question is whether divestment is primarily a moral or a practical issue. Due to insatiable demand, the overuse of fossil fuels may be permanently damaging the planet; consumption is out of control, for political and economic reasons only indirectly related to good and evil. Thus the corruption of the fossil-fuel industry, and whether or not using a plastic toothbrush is morally superior to smoking a cigarette, are both incidental; unchecked consumption is the issue, regardless of the moral character of fossil-fuel sellers who merely supply the market with what it wants. And because they sell to anyone, as far as good and evil are concerned it is their absence of morality that should concern us; cold, mercenary, and devoid of conscience, they bargain with saints and sinners alike. This is what an Exxon share really signifies—a for-profit investment in a ruthless trade that does not trouble itself with delicate matters of conscience, and soils its hands as conditions require.

    So the least the apologists for fossil-fuel investment can do is stop patronizing us with their pseudo-moral arguments of convenience—for the sake of intellectual honesty, if nothing else. Otherwise we must take their position for what it is: a timid, unprincipled concession to the raw power of a worldwide behemoth, to which many research universities are now attached like remoras to the back of a whale. And since we are known by the company we keep, we are left with two questions; for what do we stand, and how will we be remembered. Slavery once had its share of ardent defenders who saw positive moral good in it; how long, then, will it take the fossil-fuel apologists to see the bankruptcy of their position for themselves.

    In his September message to the Harvard community, President Bacow summarized his concerns on climate change and fossil fuels: Climate change is a crisis…fossil fuels are the problem…We hope to be fossil-fuel free by 2050. 

    Is the “We” President Bacow is referring to, to make all buildings of the Harvard community fossil-free by 2050? If so, how would one measure the cost and benefit to the University? Or is “We” referring to a larger entity?

    As we debate the extent and location of “Climate Change” problems, we must not forget the Hockey Stick hoax of East Anglia University, which most agree was based on manipulated data. 

    On August 8, 2019, there was a United Nations Intergovernmental Panel that announced that global warming was devastating crop production and threatening food shortages. This news was contradicted 20 days later, by a Wall Street Journal article that global crop production is setting new records. 

    I would like to see a report by a skilled scientist of the Harvard community evaluate the research done by the petroleum engineer Robert Rapier in his paper, published by Forbes on July 1, 2018, titled “China emits more carbon dioxide then the U.S. and EU Combined.” Rapier’s statistics indicate a substantial growth of global emissions of CO2 between 1990 and 2017 from 11 to 18 billion tons/year. In 1990, free Europe and the U.S. combined emitted 9 billion tons, and in 2017 it dropped to 8 billion tons. During the same period the emissions of CO2 in China increased from 2 to 10 billion tons. 

    A question for our Harvard community should be, what is the measure we should be using in defining the dangers of carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere?. And what is the view of Professor William Happer of Princeton? 

    David Scott ’51, M.B.A. ’53

    I was disappointed by Mr. Bacow’s column, particularly by his comment that “The scientific consensus is by now clear.”

    While periodically scientific consensus may be clear, it is never immutable nor settled. Science is based on observation; and as we continue to observe more and gain more facts, scientific consensus moves on.

    The “scientific consensus” was settled that everything revolved around the earth before Galileo. In the Soviet Union, the “scientific consensus” was settled under the Lysenkoist theory that changes to living beings could be passed on genetically. And so on.

    I would also observe that “climate change” is and always has been ongoing. As far as I can understand, the earth’s climate has been changing for several million years. It is hard to know what exactly is different right now and why we should suddenly be alarmed about a process that does predate us by the aforementioned several million years and which seems not to have resulted in catastrophe for tens of thousands of years (ever since the last Ice Age.)

    I applaud Mr. Bacow’s call for additional research. But the president of Harvard, of all people, should not indulge in unscientific and even anti-scientific appeals to a current consensus.

    Tom Neagle, M.B.A. ’72
    Fort Mill, S.C.

     Larry Bacow’s climate-change column was the most globally important piece I recall reading in Harvard magazine in decades.

    By way of background for this comment, I spent many years studying various fields of science before becoming a Humphrey Fellow at Harvard Business School a lifetime ago. With my M.B.A. degree in hand, I worked as a management consultant for Arthur D. Little Inc., then headed up a similar but smaller firm with a reputation for high-quality consulting work. From this education and experience, through HBS, ADL, and a nearly 40-year-long career, I learned how to sort out the real from the fake, and the important from the trivial. 

    Now, as a parent, a grandparent, and someone who cares about other people, I feel obligated to speak up and say that no truer words have been written about climate change and its overarching importance than those in Larry’s column. World-famous scientists who understand climate change, including many at Harvard, shake their heads in sad disbelief at the huge gap between their fact-based concern for our future and the widespread nonchalance of the general public—not to mention the outright denial among some.

    Larry’s column provides a welcome and overdue brightening of the glimmers of climate-change light that now emanate from various Harvard schools, including HBS. For that I am grateful. Now it’s time for Harvard, the university that educates leaders who make a difference in the world, to show others the way forward by establishing a University Climate Initiative to put Harvard at the cutting edge of this critical existential issue.

    Roger Shamel, M.B.A. ’74

    The global warming alarms that sounded late in the last century initially were very troubling. But time was not kind to the alarmists, who have since been discredited: none of their dire forecasts has come to pass. We’ve had no temperature increase at all over the past 20 years, even as atmospheric CO2 concentration continues to rise steadily.

    Agreement seems to be emerging among numerous credible scientists that:

    • CO2 probably is not a significant factor in global warming. There certainly is no “consensus” to the contrary, and studies claiming to have found one have been refuted.
    • Warming and cooling cycles occur through natural forces which we can’t control, with solar activity likely being one of the most important.
    • CO2 is a good thing, not a bad thing, and so are fossil fuels. Increased atmospheric CO2 produces many beneficial effects on natural plant and animal environments.

    Thus, I was very disappointed to read Harvard president Larry Bacow’s “View From Mass Hall: Climate Change.” He merely parrots the popular media narrative: “…we must face up to the stark reality of climate change. The scientific consensus is by now clear: the threat is real, the potential consequences are grave, and the time to focus on solutions is now.”

    Well, no, not really. That is to view climate change from the alarmist extreme of the debate.

    Many respected scientists now know better; they offer a more balanced view of things. Future generations may well look back upon the climate change panic as the worst case of mass hysteria since the Church of Rome convulsed over Galileo. Too bad that Harvard’s leadership is following politics, not science, doing little to calm the hysteria or expose the decarbonization mania for the folly that it is.

    Baseball’s Rules

    Jacob Sweet’s baseball profile, “All Instincts” (May-June, page 32), states that a batter cannot steal first base. But a batter may attempt to steal first on a wild pitch when there are no on-base runners.

    About That Vole

    Although I greatly appreciated the article about me (“A New Way of Being in the World,” September-October, page 67), there’s something I would like to clarify. The article ends with a vole who is cornered on my porch by two of my cats. She knows she can’t escape, she believes the end has come, and she covers her eyes with her hands. That part’s okay, but I’ve had some criticism from readers for letting this happen, and the truth (which didn’t appear in the article) is that I didn’t let it happen. I ran toward the cats, shouting at them, they turned to look at me, the vole saw she had a moment to escape, and she dashed away to safety. That’s in the book, and I’d appreciate your publishing this letter so readers won’t think too badly of me.

    Thank you and Nell Porter Brown for the “Explorations and Curiosities” series (Harvard Squared).

    Nell Porter Brown’s feature on “Purgatory—and Beyond” brought me to full attention.

    I haven’t thought of Purgatory in Sutton, Massachusetts, for decades. It was a destination for a few summer outings for us kids coming from the heat of the nearby city of Worcester. Although it lacked a swimming hole, the rocks provided entertainment sufficient for an afternoon. Thanks for the photo and for the text which stirred some very good memories, and which in turn inspired the poem I attach.

    Station Yourself on the Rock

    Purgatory Chasm in Sutton, Mass.—
    a geological anomaly—meant
    more than that to you and me
    (no scientists we at five and seven)
    who had come with parents
    to picnic a lifetime ago.
    Pictures emerge in my mind
    of sharp outcroppings of towering rock
    intimidating in their seeming leaning
    at a cautionary angle that said, Take care,
    and we did, climbing that rocky place
    named by Puritans as Purgatory
    where the soul is cleansed by fire
    before coming into the presence of God
    enabled to bear the beatific vision
    which otherwise it could not, recalling
    Moses, hidden in rock and waiting to see
    the glory of God pass by, but only
    allowed the hindmost parts, as no one
    could look on the face of God and live.
    As smoke rose up from our charcoal grill—
    hot dogs, chips and tonic ready—
    we sat at a picnic table and shared
    the family meal before God.

    Diversity

    Regarding the New York Times Magazine’s cover story on litigation before Judge Burroughs (9/1/19):

    While the author sets out to analyze the litigation from the viewpoint of second-generation Asian immigrants, the point I draw from it is quite different. The Harvard admissions process is about diversity for the benefit of the student body, not for the purpose of righting old injustices; it has nothing to do with affirmative action. Harvard may quite properly have a purpose not focused on addressing the harms of historic, institutional racism. One can quite properly argue whether this is the “right” purpose for a private institution or not, but it’s not a federally justiciable issue. 

     William Malone ’58, J.D. ’62

     Not White, not Black; Asian. Hispanic.

    My son’s high school writes to ask me about his race. There are very few choices and so, I reply, none of them describe the diversity he represents. 

    I hesitate to tell the information officer that my son is African American. Yet that’s exactly what he is: his father was born under a tree in the Sahara. His first language was not Arabic dialect but the tribal language of the Saharawi. 

    In New Orleans, I think, my son isn’t black. But I’m wrong. He isn’t white. And what else is there? In this town, where people have been mixing for 400 years, the reality of Code Noir and Jim Crow has left lasting divisions. My son came home from day care, at age three, and confided in us that he was glad that his father was not a slave because, as his caregivers had told him, this had been the fate of black people in Louisiana. 

    So why do I get it wrong, on the form, and say—because there is no category for my son—white? It is the same box that his young, African-American, English teacher puts him in, ignoring the experience he brings to their reading of African and Asian, Muslim, literatures. But the following year, another English teacher, white and on the verge of retirement, puts him in that other box, the one in which people, no matter how smart they might be, are not seen as competent in English. People with my son’s strange name and curly dark hair. 

    Harvard students representing diversity have recently testified about their experience. I applaud them. I did not know what it was like to be “taken for” something, to be projected onto, until I watched my son. 

    I worried about my son applying to Harvard with less than perfect scores, less than perfect grades. But he understands something better than I do. He understands that, wherever he is admitted, he will bring needed diversity: intelligence and experience, but also that fact that some people might not have seen him the way I do and also for that reason might not have given him the grade he deserves. And this, too, makes him who he is: “white” or African American, beur or Arab; in the UK, Asian, Muslim; and in Spain, Spanish, like his uncle, and other members of the tribe born before the Sahara was de-colonized.

    He checks all the boxes. Why ask me? He knows who he is.

    Errata

    The fourth paragraph of the Vita on suffragist Adella Hunt Logan (September-October, page 54) contained inaccuracies in dating and other details involving Hunt Logan’s interactions with Susan B. Anthony, which were pointed out by Anthony biographer Lynn Sherr. Details appear at harvardmag.com/vita-logan-19. We regret the errors.

    The profile of Elizabeth Marshall Thomas (“A New Way of Being in the World,” September-October, page 67) reported that she had “three dogs and three cats”—but one of those dogs is her son’s.

    The report on a collection obtained by Radcliffe’s Schlesinger Library (“Revisiting Angela Davis,” September-October, page 44) indicated that Professor Elizabeth Hinton and two graduate students sorted and organized the materials for an exhibition. In fact, their selections for the exhibition were preceded by processing of the materials by Schlesinger staff archivists Jenny Gotwals, Amber Moore, and Jehan Sinclair.

    As published, the letter from Robert H. Goldstein (September-October, page 6) omitted a significant word, rendering “my humorously intended comments incomprehensible,” he notes. The letter should have read: “Among certain ethnic groups, the theological question of when life begins is reputed to be answered, ‘On graduation from law school,’” with the italicized word here restored.

    Comment on CE102004 Lotion to Powder Freshener by Jen

     Cache   
    I used this on a recent trip to New Orleans where the heat and humidity felt like 100 everyday. I brought some dresses and can say it made all the difference. Normally I would never wear dresses in that heat due to chub rub but this definitely helped me feel way more comfortable and lasted all night. I just put some on the inside of both thighs and was able to walk around all night without my thighs feeling like they were on fire. So Thank you!

    Lights on the Hill

     Cache   
    This year’s InLight tackles the complex histories of Chimborazo Park.

    Like so many places in Richmond, the history of Chimborazo Hill is complicated. It’s both the location of the largest Confederate military hospital during the Civil War and the site of a community for formerly enslaved African Americans following emancipation. 

    This year’s InLight, the annual two-night public exhibition of light-based art and performances organized by 1708 Gallery, takes place in Chimborazo and focuses on the park’s social and geographic history. 

    “We were inspired by the complex histories that have defined Chimborazo Park and were interested in commissioning artists to create works that directly consider this site,” says 1708 Gallery’s director, Emily Smith.

    As a result, all curated and juried artists’ works consider the multiple narratives of the hilltop location. In addition to many Richmond-based artists, InLight 2019 includes artists from Detroit, New Orleans, New York and Philadelphia. As with past years, the event kicks off with a community lantern parade in which everyone is invited to participate. Ten local food vendors as well as a beer sponsor will be on hand to fuel the evening.

    To multimedia artist Eva Rocha, Chimborazo Hospital was a place built to treat victims of a war that left a scar on the country’s collective unconsciousness. After the war, it became a camp for homeless freed slaves trying to build new lives, essentially a place for refugees seeking asylum.

    “Chimborazo was and is a place where many layers of history took place,” she says. “I think of history as a living organism with its own scars. I like to think those scars can be healed collectively.” 

    She dubbed her submission, “Cot: Refugees, Freedmen and Abandoned Lands.” For Rocha, for whom English is a second language, the sound of the word cot resembled the word caught. But she also saw a cot as a metaphorical object because of its extensive use in war zones, in hospitals during wartime, in prisons, in concentration camps, in refugee camps and in very poor homes.

    “My goal with this work is to layer, to call attention to the relationship between different forms of constrictions and sufferings and how they affect us all collectively,” she says. “My goal is to offer this work as a place to heal historical wounds by considering the complex human suffering of this site. I propose a collective healing.”

    Not surprisingly, the audience for InLight has grown every year, a fact that heartens the organizers. But Smith also points out that 1708 Gallery has gotten better about working directly with artists to develop projects that first and foremost directly engage the site. By doing so, it facilitates an exhibition that feels timely and relevant. 

    “I’m also proud that through the continued support of our partners, we’ve been able to provide increasingly greater resources to our artists,” she says. “More money, more production assistance and more opportunities to build community.”

    Artist Logan Dandridge works in film and video, primarily multichannel video installations. This is the Hanover County native’s second year showing work at InLight and he acknowledges that Chimborazo and similar historic landmarks are vital to his work.

    “Certain themes like identity, history and spirituality were formative to the work,” he says of this year’s installation, “The Sound Is the Picture,” which he considers a synthesis of those themes through the poetics and aesthetics of experimental cinema. “The film is entrenched in cultural critique and addressing the legacy of the Confederacy.” 

    While you’re exploring InLight, look for the signs that offer information about each project and remember: There is no single path to explore. The organizers suggest visitors use the maps provided or ask a volunteer to make sure that they see everything. For those worrying about the ease of parking, the simplest solution is to park at Stone Brewing and take the free shuttle to Chimborazo. And although InLight is free, donations are welcome and there will be volunteers with buckets as well as the option of donating via text. 

    Smith says the gallery has known from the first year that the accessibility of InLight is a gateway for many people to connect with contemporary art and, more importantly, to connect with the compelling stories that inform different parts of the community.

    “By pushing the exhibition to be as site-specific as possible, we’re doing more to make these connections for our audiences.”

    And that means all audiences, so selfie moments will be built into this year’s event.

    Artist Jonathan Rosen’s large format mirror with the words “Shine Like” written on it is an Instagram post waiting to happen.

    Because as we all know, if there’s no picture, you weren’t really at InLight 2019.

     InLight will be held on Friday, Nov. 15, and Saturday, Nov. 16, from 7 - 11 p.m. at Chimborazo Park, 3215 E. Broad St. Free.

    VETERAN ACTOR AND SINGER/SONGWRITER JOHN ALLEE
    DIVES FULL FATHOMS INTO HIS LIFELONG PASSIONS FOR SHAKESPEARE & JAZZ on BARDFLY 
    AVAILABLE OCTOBER 11, 2019

    SOUNDCLOUD      DOWNLOAD      
    (for your eyes/ears only... please don't share/post, except feel free to post VIDEO link!)

    "Now entertain conjecture of a time - maybe it's 1958, maybe it's 1598, maybe it's today..." With those words, spoken slyly over a cool, hipster jazz groove, JOHN ALLEE draws us into BARDFLY, an otherworldly, super-literate and supremely swinging realm that finds the veteran stage and TV actor, singer-songwriter and all-around creative hyphenate fusing his dual lifelong passions for all things Shakespeare and jazz.

    Showcasing his wide array of talents as a vocalist, composer, lyricist and dramatic performer, the eclectic 13-track set - in which he assumes the persona of Feste "The Bardfly" Johnson - mines compelling verses from a wide swath of the Bard's canon from Othello to Henry IV as a foundation for everything from blues, ballads and hymns to compelling spoken word and swingin' ditties. An award-winning author and composer of musical plays, the Los Angeles based Allee composed all the music for BARDFLY. While he set some of Shakespeare's lyrics directly to music, on seven pieces he added words and phrases to dazzling dramatic effect, essentially becoming a co-writer with his muse. Allee also wrote the clever "Bardfly Blues," the opening number which serves as an invitation into the overall experience.

    The collection finds Allee ensembling with a quintet of some of the most storied jazz cats in L.A., including MAHESH BALASOORIYA (longtime touring pianist with Arturo Sandoval), drummer AARON MCLENDON (Scott Bradlee's Postmodern Jukebox, Taylor Eigsti), bassist DOMINIC THIROUX (Kamasi Washington, Renee Olstead), saxophonist JAVIER VERGARA (aka the "Mexican Coltrane," who has played extensively with Poncho Sanchez) and trumpeter MATT VON RODERICK (Brad Mehldau, John Medeski).

    Allee's first professional "collaboration" with the Bard came via an LA Opera production of Benjamin Britten's musical adaptation of A Midsummer Night's Dream, directed by Gordon Davidson in which he played an airborne Puck. Among dozens of stage credits, Allee's career since has included performances in other Shakespeare plays. In fact, BARDFLY grew organically out of Allee's role as Twelfth Night's Feste the Clown in a theatrical mashup called Barfly Shakespeare, presented at a night club in North Hollywood. He was tasked by the director with coming up with a jazz club vibe for the tunes and first landed on "The Wind and the Rain," which he recast as an easy swinging, hepster strut. He would later choose that tune as the perfect closer to the album.
     
    "People who are perhaps not so well-versed in Shakespeare may not know this," the singer says, "but all of his plays had music in them. And he included lyrics to many songs in his works. When I first started playing around with his lyrics, I realized that they are almost like beat poetry -- they sound so cool when you swing them. He was also a shameless adapter of songs. So taking his lead, I gave myself permission to adapt his songs, sometimes even grabbing little snippets of lyrics he references in a scene and developing them into full blown songs," as Allee did with the penultimate ballad "Never Come Again," based on Ophelia's scattered ramblings in her famous mad scene from Hamlet.

    "Shakespeare was all about dichotomy," says Allee "light and dark, tragic and comic, lowly and exalted." And it's a blast to follow the highs, lows and dynamic rhythmic variations from track to track, scene by scene. Allee caps his opener by segueing soulfully into the torchy, jazzy blues of "Samingo," then eases into the gently reflective piano driven ballad "Until the Break of Day." It's not all gloomy for Ophelia, as Allee sends up another of her well-worn catches with dazzling original lyrics, turning "Tomorrow is St. Valentine's Day" into a witty and playful romp as he duets with Von Roderick's snazzy trumpet over a marching, swinging New Orleans beat. Allee keeps the NOLA magic boppin' on the high octane "Philomel/Hold Thy Peace," a medley of weaving spiders and thorny hedgehogs.

    Allee is all about romantic jazz with "Mistress Mine" (wistfully singing the famous line "present mirth hath present laughter") and "Sigh No More," sweet, reflective ballads that showcase the gentler side of his artistry. Taking its title to heart, the singer roars in witty talk-sing  conversation with the horns through the sexy, seductive prowling of "The Hungry Lion." "Green Willow," a hypnotic ballad based on Desdemona's famous prescient lament in Othello, finds Allee artfully bridging the worlds of jazz and musical theatre."Full Fathom Five" is a melancholy hymn of varying tempos with a whimsical 5/4 coda. One of BARDFLY's most buoyant numbers is the bold and brassy "Heigh Ho the Holly," a straight-ahead jazz tune that showcases the instrumental soloists' virtuosic chops over some tricky changes. True to the dichotomous nature of the project, he follows this with the solemn yet somehow life affirming ballad "Come Away Death" before taking us out on a high note.

    About John Allee

    HIP, CONTEMPORARY 19-PIECE BIG BAND BIG BEAT
    RELEASES FIRST FULL-LENGTH ALBUM, 
    "SOUNDS GOOD, FEELS GOOD"
    AVAILABLE FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2019



    The big band jazz sound has gone through many variations in its 100+ year history. From the earliest days in New Orleans, through the Swing era, to the modern, progressive jazz interpretations of Thad Jones in the 1960s and Sun Ra's avant garde Arkestra in the 1970s, the big band sound has remained an important part of the American music soundscape, growing and changing with the times. Now, BIG BEAT,a band comprising mostly younger musicians, has taken up the big band mantle, imbuing the music with a contemporary edge while still hewing to the traditional big band spirit.
     
    SOUNDS GOOD, FEELS GOOD is Big Beat's first full-length project. They previously released two EPs: one in 2017, recorded live on the college station 88.7 - Brave New Radio - and another in2015. SOUNDS GOOD, FEELS GOOD, like their previous recordings, is a swinging, high-energy party of original, pop, and R&B tunes. It's performed by a 19-piece orchestra made up of the some of the finest up-and-coming East Coast musicians who are destined to populate the upper echelons of the jazz firmament.
     
    The co-leaders and founders of the band are four young men who all graduated with Master's Degrees in Jazz Arranging from William Paterson University in New Jersey. They are bassist CHARLIE DOUGHERTY, saxophonist PHIL ENGSBERG, trombonist CALEB RUMLEY, and pianist RYAN TOMSKI. In addition to their mastery of their respective instruments, each one is a top-notch arranger and composer.
     
    The band coalesced in July 2014. They all loved big band music and were writing and arranging swing tunes with a funk, gospel, soul, and R&B feel. It wasn't easy finding bands to play their music, so they decided to form their own. One of the first things they did was bring on board vocalist ALLISON MCKENZIE, a young woman with a powerful but lyrical voice that easily bridges the jazz and pop worlds. She is a superb songwriter and contributed four original tunes to this album. McKenzie and Rumley were dating when she joined the band. Since then, they have gotten married and now have an adorable baby.
     
    Big Beat is made up of 5 saxophones, 4 trombones, 4 trumpets, guitar, piano, bass, drums, vocals, and a conductor. The 19 musicians on SOUNDS GOOD, FEELS GOOD have been members of Big Beat almost from its inception, and all, despite their busy and often conflicting schedules, make the time to regularly perform with the band.
     
    Although the leaders of Big Beat are millennials, the members of the band cross generations. PETE McGUINNESS, an educator at William Paterson University and a mentor to the band's founders, produced the album. McGuinness is a trombonist who has received several Grammy nominations and has worked with the likes of Maria Schneider and Charles McPherson. He also fronts his own eponymous jazz orchestra. MIKE SPENGLER, who plays lead trumpet, was a member of Diana Ross and Bruce Springsteen's horn section. CHRIS ROGERS, another member of the trumpet section, has played extensively at major festivals around the world, and bass trombonist TIM NEWMAN has played with top jazz acts like Winard Harper, Cecil Bridgewater, and Toshiko Akiyoshi.
     
    The album opens with "I Wanna Talk With You," composed by McKenzie and arranged by Engsberg. This is a high-powered tune with a Tower of Power R&B vibe featuring a smoking bone solo by Rumley, who also conducts the band for this outing. McKenzie also penned "I'll Be Burning for You," arranged by Dougherty. The song is one of the band's earliest and is always a crowd-pleaser in their live performances. "All the Love," was arranged by Rumley and inspired by Stevie Wonder. "Miss America," the closing tune, was the only tune not arranged by a band member. It was arranged by trumpet maestro CECIL BRIDGEWATER, who has been a teacher and long-time supporter of the Big Beat leaders. He produced their first EP and asked to produce this song, which McKenzie wrote in response to the racially-motivated shootings in Charleston, South Carolina on June 17, 2015.
     
    "A Penny for Your Thoughts" is another tune composed by a band member. Written and arranged by Engsberg, it's a funky instrumental that features an electrified trombone solo by ADAM MACHASKEE and a bass trombone solo by Newman.
     
    The band also performs Stevie Wonder's pop classic "Knocks Me Off My Feet." The tune was arranged by Rumley who added horns that sound like they were arranged by Stevie Wonder himself. In a similar vein is Dougherty's arrangement of "I Want You Back" by the Jackson 5, a high energy, mixed meter take on the Motown classic. For the vocal tracks on the album, the band brought in DENISE RENEE to produce McKenzie's vocals. Renee, who goes by the name Stout for her own performances and recordings, has performed and/or recorded with Alicia Keys, Beyonce, Stevie Wonder, Childish Gambino, John Legend, and Harry Connick Jr, to name a few. "It's Love" was written by R&B/soul singer Jill Scott and arranged by Engsberg, who was greatly influenced by Gil Evans on this number. The song features layered harmonies and back-up vocals, all sung by McKenzie.  
     
    Based on the modern jazz tradition, Big Beat's innovative arrangements bring the big band sound into the 21st Century with elements of funk, soul, R&B, and gospel. With McKenzie's soaring vocals and the band's tight-knit, spot-on musicianship, SOUNDS GOOD, FEELS GOOD, as the name indicates, is an album that undoubtedly sounds good and feels good.
     
     
    SOUNDS GOOD, FEELS GOODwill be available online and in store on September 27, 2019.

    40 Local Food Blogs to Follow Around the World

     Cache   
    If you're anything like us, food is a very important part of your travel plans. Whether we're on the road for work or flying halfway across the world for fun, we always try to sample the best local food.

    That's why the coolest thing about traveling to London, San Francisco and New Orleans with Chowzter over the past two years has been meeting all the other contributors from around the world. They write blogs, run tours and share incredible photos of the local food/culture that we're dying to experience.

    Even better, we've realized that they are just like you and me - regular people who love to eat/drink, love their cities and love the communities that are built around food. That's the perspective we trust and want to lead us to our next meal.

    If you're traveling to any of the following cities this summer, please check out these great local writers we've met for their posts, videos, podcasts, tweets, instagrams, etc. with ideas on what to eat. And remember that much of what they write about are "fast feasts" - not fast food and not fine dining, but all the great local, affordable dishes in between (can you say Rotolo?) And if you don't see your destination city here, check out Chowzter.com and their new video site www.foodiehub.tv for quick suggestions in about 100 other cities.

    The Walking Dead: Saint & Sinners

    Skydance Interactive vient de dévoiler une nouvelle vidéo montrant de nouveaux lieux pour The Walking Dead : Saint & Sinners. Le jeu prend la direction d’une ville dont les visuels sont bluffants.

    Le jeu avait été annoncé au mois de juillet dernier avec une date de lancement initialement prévue pour cette année. Si cela a été repoussé au 23 janvier 2020, les visuels s’avèrent particulièrement prometteurs.

    The Walking Dead : Saint & Sinners, un jeu qui s’annonce incontournable

    Ceux, comme nos confrères du site Upload VR, qui ont déjà pu tester le jeu s’avouent particulièrement impressionnés par le résultat. The Walking Dead : Saint & Sinners est un jeu de survival qui propose un contenu vraiment immersif et vous poussera à faire de lourdes décisions éthiques dans votre quête de survie. Le rendu visuel de la Nouvelle Orléans, comme il vient d’être dévoilé dans une nouvelle vidéo, est pour le moins tentant. Les images sont vraiment bluffantes et l’équipe explique pourquoi cette ville a été choisie.

    « Je pense que la résilience de la ville, celle que nous connaissons tous, c’est quelque chose que nous essayons d’explorer du côté humain des choses. Mais The Walking Dead a la capacité de montrer la résilience d’une ville au-delà des années » explique Davidson Cole, un des auteurs du jeu. On sait aussi à quoi va ressembler votre camp de base dans le jeu. Placé dans un cimetière, entouré par des hauts murs, vous pourrez ainsi ne pas voir les morts-vivants. Un ancien bus sera lui rempli d’armes et de cartes pour vous aider. The Walking Dead : Saint & Sinners sortira fin janvier sur Oculus Rift, HTC Vive et Valve Index.

    AL-02: Citing poor fundraising, state Rep. Will Dismukes dropped out of the GOP primary on Wednesday for this safely red open seat.

    Thursday, Oct 31, 2019 · 3:43:01 PM +00:00 · Jeff Singer

    KS-Sen: On Thursday, both the DSCC and EMILY’s List endorsed state Sen. Barbara Bollier’s campaign for this open GOP-held seat. Kansas famously hasn’t elected a Democratic senator since 1932, but Team Blue is hoping for an opening next year especially if 2018 GOP gubernatorial nominee Kris Kobach wins his primary.

    Bollier, a former moderate Republican who switched parties late last year, entered the race in mid-October and quickly emerged as the heavy favorite in the Democratic primary. Former U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom dropped out just one day after Bollier jumped in and endorsed her, and she also soon earned the backing of both Gov. Laura Kelly and former Gov. Kathleen Sebelius. Bollier still faces Manhattan Mayor Pro Tem Usha Reddi in the August primary, but Reddi raised very little money during her first month in the race and has little outside support.

    NJ-02, MN-07: On Thursday, the House voted to formalize its impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump, with all but two Democrats in favor and every Republican voting again (Republican-turned-independent Justin Amash was an "aye"). The two Democratic dissenters were longtime Rep. Collin Peterson, who represents the reddest district held by a Democrat, and freshman Rep. Jeff Van Drew, who was thanked by Trump for his anti-impeachment comments in September.

    In explaining himself, Peterson largely echoed discredited GOP talking points about process, and his decision was likely driven by raw political preservation: His once-blue district in rural northwest Minnesota voted for Trump 62-31 and is likely to keep getting redder. Peterson has also drawn what's likely going to be his toughest challenge ever from former Lt. Gov. Michelle Fischbach, who recently earned House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy's endorsement.

    Two decades ago, though, Peterson felt quite differently. In October of 1998, he voted in favor of a Republican resolution opening an impeachment investigation into Bill Clinton, even though the crimes Clinton was alleged to have committed were far less grave than what Trump stands accused of. And while Peterson has always been one of the most conservative members of his caucus, his district had voted for Clinton by a 45-40 margin in 1996. (He ultimately voted against all four articles of impeachment that December.)

    Van Drew, meanwhile, faces the opposite political calculus, though he doesn't seem to realize it. Van Drew's district in southern New Jersey also went for Trump, but by a considerably smaller 51-46 margin, and it previously backed Obama twice. In addition, calculations by analyst J. Miles Coleman show that Democratic Gov. Phil Murphy carried the district 50-48 during his successful 2017 run.

    By virtue of representing swingy turf, Van Drew was always likely to be a Republican target next year, regardless of his vote on impeachment. Now, though, he's upped the likelihood he'll face the wrath of progressives in June's primary.

    Wichita, KS Mayor: On Tuesday, Democratic state Rep. Brandon Whipple filed a defamation lawsuit against a man named Matthew Colborn and two unnamed “John Doe” defendants over a web ad that falsely accused Whipple of sexual harassment.

    Whipple is running to unseat Jeff Longwell, the Republican mayor of Wichita, and his lawsuit alleges that “supporters of the Mayor entered into a civil conspiracy to publish defamatory claims against the plaintiff with the intent of harming his candidacy.” Longwell has condemned the spot and denied any involvement with it.

    The ad features several young women describing how they were sexually harassed while they were interns in the Kansas state legislature, and concludes with them all saying in unison, “Stop Brandon Whipple.” However, while the stories the women recount come from media reports describing harassment at the state capitol, none of them involved Whipple. The anti-Whipple ad even quotes one intern recounting how a legislator asked her, “Do your panties match your outfit?” but it fails to note that those words were attributed to a Republican state senator.

    The web video was paid for by a New Mexico group called Protect Wichita’s Girls LLC, but state records don’t reveal any information about who’s behind the organization. However, one of the actresses who appeared in its ad came forward to tell The Wichita Eagle that she had been paid $50 to read a script for the video and identified GOP operative Matthew Colborn as the producer, saying Colborn told her she was working on “an ad against domestic violence.” The actress added that she had no idea who Whipple was when she took part, but said that “knowing that it’s a lie now, I just feel terrible.”

    Colborn has served as campaign manager for Republican state Rep. Michael Capps, and he filmed the ad in an office he shares with Capps and another Republican, City Councilman James Clendenin. Clendenin has acknowledged that he knows Colborn but denied that he had anything to do with the video. Wichita’s mayoral election is Tuesday.

    New York City, NY Ballot: On Tuesday, New York City will vote on whether to adopt instant-runoff voting for all city primaries and special elections. If a majority votes in favor of Ballot Question 1, instant runoffs would come in to affect for races for mayor, public advocate, comptroller, borough president, and the New York City Council starting in 2021.

    The measure would not impact general elections, where it still would take just a simple plurality of the vote to win, but if New York City does adopt instant-runoff voting, it would be by far the largest jurisdiction in America to do so.

    The city has long allowed candidates for mayor and other citywide offices to win party nominations with considerably less than a majority of the vote, and that’s put Democrats in some rough spots more than once. The most notorious incident arose in 1969, when City Comptroller Mario Procaccino, a conservative Democrat who declared, “We must stop coddling the criminals and pampering the punks,” was the beneficiary of a crowded primary.

    That year, the liberal and moderate vote split between the party’s frontrunner, former Mayor Robert Wagner, and Bronx Borough President Herman Badillo. Procaccino ended up winning the nomination with just 33% of the vote while Wagner and Badillo took 29% and 28%, respectively. (Pulitzer Prize-winning author Norman Mailer also competed in that race and finished a distant fourth with 5%.)

    Procaccino, with his denunciations against “limousine liberals” and calls to “stop coddling the criminals and pampering the punks,” alienated the Democratic base, and in so doing, he gave incumbent John Lindsay a boost. Lindsay himself had narrowly lost the GOP nomination to a conservative opponent, state Sen. John Marchi, but he forged on as candidate of the now-defunct Liberal Party and beat beat Procaccino 42-35, while Marchi wound up with just 23%.

    With Democrats eager to avoid a repeat, the state legislature passed a new law requiring citywide primary candidates to win at least 40% of the vote to avoid a runoff. Procaccino sued, saying that the new rule “discriminates against poor guys like me.” However, the law stood, and it remains in effect today.

    But while the new rules have prevented a conservative like Procaccino from winning another Democratic primary, they’ve still caused headaches for Team Blue. Republican incumbent Rudy Guliani was termed out in 2001, and Democrats were initially optimistic about retaking the mayor’s office after eight years in the wilderness. However, the primary between Bronx Borough President Fernando Ferrer and Public Advocate Mark Green went into a nasty second round that ended with a 51-49 victory for Green.

    Less than a month later, Republican Michael Bloomberg defeated Green 50-48; while Bloomberg benefited from his massive spending and Guliani’s renewed popularity in the aftermath of the Sept. 11 attacks, the negative Democratic primary likely also played a role in the narrow GOP win.

    In 2013, the Democratic primary to succeed Bloomberg almost went to a runoff, but late-counted votes put Bill de Blasio just over the top with 40.8% of the vote. De Blasio will be termed-out in 2021 and if Question 1 passes on Tuesday, what could be a crowded Democratic primary to succeed him will be held under instant-runoff rules.

    NC-Sen: On Thursday, the DSCC endorsed former state Sen. Cal Cunningham in the primary to take on GOP Sen. Tom Tillis. Cunningham faces a few opponents in the March contest, but none of them have raised much money. Cunningham had $1.1 million in the bank at the end of September while his nearest intra-party foe, state Sen. Erica Smith, had only $13,000 to spend.

    LA-Gov: Edgewater Research and My People Vote are out with a poll of the Nov. 16 runoff that gives Democratic Gov. John Bel Edwards a 50-47 lead over Republican Eddie Rispone, which is the same margin that the GOP firm JMC Analytics recently found in their survey for the media company Nexstar Communications. Edgewater Research is run by veteran New Orleans pollster Ed Chervenak.

    Meanwhile, Donald Trump has announced that he will hold a rally sometime next week for Rispone in Monroe. The city is located in the 5th District, which is represented by defeated all-party primary candidate Ralph Abraham. Abraham endorsed Rispone on the night of his defeat, but Edwards has been running TV spots in the 5th District reminding voters about the ugly contest between the two Republicans.

The first spot is positive and touts her as "the most bipartisan senator," while the second ad blasts supposed "extreme-left" groups for spending millions of dollars on ads that the narrator claims are false without specifying any of the attacks against Collins.

    MD-07: On Thursday, Del. Talmadge Branch became the first elected official to announce that he would compete in the special Democratic primary to succeed the late Rep. Elijah Cummings. Branch is the chamber’s majority whip, and he is also a former chair of the Legislative Black Caucus.

    This week, former Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake and Del. Terri Hill also each expressed interest in joining the February primary for this safely blue seat. Rawlings-Blake was a rising star in state and national Democratic politics for years, but she was widely criticized for her handling of the unrest that followed after a black man named Freddie Gray died in police custody in 2015.

    Rawlings-Blake had initially announced that she would seek re-election as mayor, but several prominent local politicians began making noises about challenging the weakened incumbent in the primary. Rawlings-Blake ended up announcing that she would retire later that year.

    A number of other Democrats are also eyeing this race, but state Sen. Antonio Hayes took his name out of contention this week.

    CA-25: Democratic Rep. Katie Hill has confirmed that her resignation will take effect on Nov. 1 Meanwhile, Democratic Reps. Julia Brownley and Brad Sherman have endorsed Assemblywoman Christy Smith, who appears to have the inside track with the party establishment ahead of a 2020 special election, the date of which has yet to be announced. However, despite Smith's growing support among prominent state and local Democrats, Politico reports that Virgin Galactic CEO George Whitesides is considering running as a Democrat, but he has yet to say anything publicly.

    TX-22: Wealthy fundraiser Kathaleen Wall is already launching a cable TV ad well before the March 3 GOP primary, and the ad primarily focuses on touting her Christian faith, along with hitting generic Republican themes of "building the wall" and opposing abortion.

    TX-13: On Wednesday, businessman and GOP donor Chris Ekstrom announced that he would seek the nod for this safely open seat in the Texas Panhandle.

    Ekstrom has a habit of taking on the state party establishment, and he made news late last year when he and his conservative nonprofit launched a persuasion campaign to try and convince incoming (and now outgoing) state House Speaker Dennis Bonnen to keep a plaque in the state Capitol that lionized the Confederacy and pledged to teach that the Civil War "was not a rebellion nor was its underlying cause to sustain slavery." Ekstrom’s effort failed, and the historically inaccurate plaque went down earlier this year. Ekstrom’s group also has attacked a Dallas city councilwoman for voting to take down a statue of Robert E. Lee in a city park.

    While GOP voters probably won’t hold this campaign against Ekstrom, they may not be too keen to support a former Never Trumper. In 2016 Ekstrom was part of the Free the Delegates movement that made a last ditch effort to try and deny Donald Trump the GOP nod at the Republican National Convention. Ekstrom argued at the time, “It’s now our time and our duty to say that this is a conservative platform in the Republican Party, and we simply will not abandon it.” Unsurprisingly, though, Ekstrom now calls himself “a conservative Christian Trump Republican.”

    It’s also not clear if Ekstrom has close ties to this seat. Multiple media reports have said that Ekstrom is based in Dallas, and as recently as May, the Texas Observer identified him as a “Dallas Republican donor.” While this seat extends to the outskirts of the Dallas-Fort Worth area, the city of Dallas is about 55 miles away from the border of the 13th District.

    BWW Review: DEAR EVAN HANSEN, Welcome to New Orleans, It's Going to Be A Great Time

     Cache   

    Dear Evan Hansen, today is going to be a good day and here's why: you're in New Orleans now. After the incident with the Hard Rock Hotel closed down the Saenger Theatre, New Orleans theatergoers were concerned about the state of the upcoming season. With a relocation to the Mahalia Jackson theater, Dear Evan Hansen made it to the Crescent City after all, and it is not a show you will want to miss.

    Dear Evan Hansen is one of the most contemporary shows of our time. Leaning heavily on social media, with references to specific platforms like Facebook, Dear Evan Hansen explores the world through the eyes of anxious teen, Evan, who gets caught up in a never-ending lie. When the class outcast Connor steals Evan's letter-writing assignment for his therapist, a simple misunderstanding progresses into a web of falsities for Evan.

    This show is visually stunning. While the set pieces are fairly simplistic, the show uses impressive screens as a backdrop to the scenes. Projected you will often see social media feeds or snippets of Evan's letter or video clips. It serves as an overt reminder for the world in which these teenagers exist.

    The casting for the Dear Evan Hansen tour is unmatched. While Ben Platt set an impossible standard or all the Evans to follow, Stephen Christopher Anthony slips into the cast, both figuratively and literally, with a quiet vulnerability. Anthony's voice is powerful. He delivers "Waving through a Window" and "For Forever" with perfect timing and heart. Particularly notable is the fan favorite "You Will Be Found," in which his acting and vocals blend together beautifully to deliver the show's main anthem.

    This cast is packed with talent. Stephanie La Rochelle plays a moody and hurting Zoe Murphy and she shines in "Requiem." The dynamic between Noah Kieserman's Connor Murphy and Alessandro Constantini's Jared matched with Stephen Christopher Anthony livens up an otherwise heavy show. Notably, Jessica E. Sherman in the role of Heidi Hansen could singlehandedly demolish what's left of the Hard Rock with her belting ability.

    Dear Evan Hansen is not an easy show to watch. Triggering for suicide and those who have lost loved ones, the musical is clear on its point of view. "Words Fail" displays arguably one of the most uncomfortable and heart-wrenching scenes set to stage. While the first act provides comic relief in songs like "Sincerely Me," prepare the tissues for the second act, which does not let up in emotion.

    Dear Evan Hansen's book by Steven Levenson and music by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul come together to create a show that will stay with you long after you leave the theater. The show will play through November 10th at the Mahalia Jackson Theater. Tickets can be purchased at www.broadwayinneworleans.com or (800) 982-2787.


              

    See 'Em On Stage Will Present CABARET

     Cache   

    The Big Easy Award-winning theatre company, See 'Em On Stage ("Lizzie"-Best Musical 2016), presents CABARET (1998 Version) with music and lyrics by John Kander and Fred Ebb and book by Joe Masteroff. "Cabaret" is based on the true stories of Christopher Isherwood which he documented in his book "Goodbye to Berlin". "Cabaret" made its Broadway debut in 1966 before becoming a 1972 Oscar-winning movie starring Liza Minnelli. In 1998, "Cabaret" returned to Broadway in the Tony Award-winning production starring Alan Cumming. This production uses the script and score from that version.

    Cabaret's political and social themes resonate as strongly now as they did when the show premiered 53 years ago, which is why the company decided to take this on as their next project. Director Christopher Bentivegna said, "Not only does Cabaret have one of the best books written for a Broadway musical and tunes that audiences have been singing for decades, but it has a social relevance that is important to explore today. Cabaret's themes of intolerance and political power and abuse along with its message about taking a stand or being passive when the world around you is collapsing makes for poignant and dramatic theater." "This process has been very collaborative with the actors and production team from the start and the final result is a production that has been created by a passionate and talented group of theater makers", added Bentivegna.

    In addition to the production itself, See 'Em On Stage has partnered with The New Orleans Art Center (the host venue) in order to include visual artists as well. An art exhibit entitled "neVertheless" is curated by Christina Juran with work inspired by political, provocative, and poignant themes which can be found in "Cabaret". It will also focus on some of the more lighthearted themes as well to create the warmth of a home engulfed by the diverse realities of humans and the day-to-day.

    "Cabaret" stars Clint Johnson as the Emcee, Kali Russell as Sally Bowles, and Josiah Rogers as Cliff Bradshaw. Margeaux Fanning and Ken Goode are featured as Fraulein Schneider and Herr Schulz. Alec Barnes, and Shelby Duhe play the roles of Ernst Ludwig and Fraulein Kost. The Kit Kat Klub dancers/singers are Chad Gearig-Howe, Daniel Oakley, Erin Routh, Kristen Swanson, Lara Taylor, Kendra Unique, and Juliana Wagner.
    The production is directed and choreographed by Christopher Bentivegna. Chad Gearig-Howe is the music director. Kali Russell is the co-choreographer. Katy Maddox is the production manager. Erin Routh is the costume design consultant and has created the unique looks for the Kit Kat Klub Women's Ensemble. Lights are a co-design by Bentivegna and Liz Blessing. The production will include a live band featuring Robert Pate Jr. on piano.
    "Cabaret" runs on November 8, 9, 10, 15, 16, 17, 22, 23, 24 (Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays at 8pm; November 9th at 9pm) at The New Orleans Art Center (3330 St. Claude Ave, NOLA)..

    This production contains adult language, adult humor, and sexual situations and is not appropriate for children under 16 years old.
    Tickets are available at our.show/cabaret/nolaGeneral admission tickets are $22 and special VIP tickets are $30. Student and senior citizen discount tickets are available for $18.

    C.W. Stoneking at Tiki Bar Athens

    November 5, 2019 to November 6, 2019
    C.W. Stoneking is an artist for whom ‘unexpected’ is probably the default setting. How else to describe such a fine purveyor of American roots music who also happens to be a towering, youthful-faced white Australian man? He surprises first-time listeners, throws curveballs at long-time fans, and everything he does contains at least some background level of bafflement for all involved.There are multitudes in Stoneking’s music. It’s probably easiest to describe him as a ‘blues artist,’ but the term disguises what makes his music special. There’s so much in there. A 1920s pre-war blues sound is key, but there’s almost equal helpings of New Orleans jazz, jug band music, hokum, country and calypso, and he’s lately brought in elements of jump jive, early rock’n’roll and gospel. His gift is that he brings them all together without anything sounding out of place. He finds the strands that connect all of these different styles and gently braids them together. It’s what he values more than anything: “It’s getting everything to unify really. The music, the flow of it, keeping it moving, with no dead spots. Then I guess having the lyrics and the meaning that flows in that too, you know? Getting it all to knit together in a way that, if you didn’t speak English maybe, you’d still be able to feel the melody, or the sounds of the words. If you did, then the meaning would also flow. That’s sort of what I’m trying to do, I guess.” When so many on the blues scene are trying to sound ‘authentic’ – whatever that is – it’s that unity of sound that allows Stoneking to actually achieve it, and with apparent ease, too. Back in the day, no-one was ‘just’ a blues musician, or a jazz or country musician, and so neither is he.See More

Following, Ron Petersen will give a presentation: The War of 1812 on Cape Cod at 1:30pm. The public is welcome at all or part of the meeting. 

    Most people are familiar with the Battle of New Orleans, which took place in January of 1815. Less than a month earlier, another one occurred: The Battle of Orleans on December 19, 1814, when British marines and seamen landed in Rock Harbor. Learn what happened when the Orleans Militia responded, and why the battle earned Orleans the motto “defiant and self-reliant."

    NFL WEEK 10: Our official predictions for who wins this weekend

     Cache   

    Minnesota VikingsDenny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

    • Week 9 of the NFL season was a rough one for our bets, with our picks going 4-9-1 against the spread.
    • This week, the Raiders and Chargers kick off the action in Oakland on Thursday night, followed up by a full slate of games on Sunday.
    • Once again, we're picking every game of the week against the spread with the hopes of making a little money.
    • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

    Week 9 was a rough one for our NFL picks.

    In a week where the home teams dominated, we had a little to much faith in the road warriors, going a dismal 4-9-1 against the spread with our picks.

    Thankfully, there's another full slate of games this week, and we're back at it picking every game with hopes of making a little cash.

    Take a look below at our best bets for Week 10 of the NFL season (* indicates home team).

    LAST WEEK: 4-9-1
    OVERALL: 71-63-1

    Oakland Raiders* (+1.5) over Los Angeles Chargers

    Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

    The Chargers are coming off their best performance of the year, stifling the Packers offense in a dominant 26-11 victory. Next week they host the Kansas City Chiefs in primetime on "Monday Night Football."

    It feels like this trip to visit the Raiders is a classic trap game for Los Angeles to come out a bit slow against a hot Oakland team ready to play for the home crowd.



    Cincinnati Bengals* (+10) over Baltimore Ravens

    Steve Flynn-USA TODAY Sports

    After beating the Patriots 37-20, every casual bettor is going to be on the Ravens to win big again this week against the lowly Bengals.

    But that's not how gambling works, and there's value in Cincinnati as double-digit home dogs in this spot, as painful as it may be to put money down on.



    Atlanta Falcons (+13) over New Orleans Saints*

    Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

    I still don't understand what's wrong with the Falcons, but these two teams tend to play each other close, so we're going to take the points and hope the trend holds.

    Just two of the past 12 meetings between these teams have been won by a two-touchdown margin, with one 14+ win for the Falcons and Saints apiece. If Atlanta were ever going to get its act together, it'd be for this game.

    Deep Dialogues

     Cache   

    “Deep Dialogues” is a series of in-person community conversations, recorded to air on the radio, on topics that matter to New Orleanians. These series is hosted by WTUL News and Views (91.5 FM in New Orleans) and Bridge The Gulf Project, and was made possible by a grant from the Public Insight Network. We hosted three Deep Dialogues in 2013, look out for more in 2014.

    Deep Dialogue 1: Where are you from?
    Where are you from, originally? This simple question was the topic of the first Deep Dialogue at Community Book Center in New Orleans in May 2013, and prompted a sweeping conversation about race, class, displacement, and what it means to be from this rapidly changing city with deep roots. More.

    Deep Dialogue 2: Using Media in the Wake of Disaster (Detroit/New Orleans exchange)
    How does mailing books to prisoners connect to throwing dance parties in a bankrupt city? What does making a film about coastal land loss have in common with using hand signals to create focus in a 2nd grade classroom? These are all ways people in New Orleans and Detroit are using media to respond to disasters, both macro and micro. These stories, and more, came out when we took our Deep Dialogues series on the road to Detroit for the Allied Media Conference. More.

    Big Easy, Little Choice

    ashana bigardA parent advocate says run—don’t walk—from New Orleans-style school choice

    By Ashana Bigard, originally posted on EduShyster.comWhen I talk about *choice* in New Orleans I use quotations with both fingers and I wink too. Supposedly we have what’s called a *choice model for excellent education* but the reality is that the overwhelming majority of schools in New Orleans now operate the exact same way. They have rigid disciplinary codes that punish poor kids forbeing poor and are neither nurturing nor developmentally appropriate.

    I’m an advocate for parents in New Orleans, which means that I work with them and represent them when their kids are suspended or expelled from school. Last year we had 54 school districts in New Orleans and all of those different districts make their own rules. For six years after the storm, the schools all set their own expulsion policies. As of last year we have a uniform expulsion policy but individual schools still make their own suspension rules.

    Punished for being poor
    Most of the cases I see involve kids who are being discriminated against and criminalized for being poor. Think about it. If I’m setting up a school in a city where half of children live in high-poverty neighborhoods why would I punish kids for not being able to pay for things that are clearly out of the range of what their families can afford? It isn’t logical. Yet as an advocate I have to go and argue with the school that if this child doesn’t have a belt or his mother can’t afford a size 15 uniform shoe that costs $200, you don’t have the right to put them out of school and keep them from being educated. This is a child we’re talking about. Even if you’re saying *we’re going to teach this child a lesson,* what are you teaching him other than that *if your parents are poor, you can be hurt*? What is the lesson?

    Case closed
    The case that still breaks my heart involved a 14-year-old who kept getting demerits because his uniform shirt was too small and came untucked basically every time he moved. His mother was a veteran, well-educated, and had sold real estate but got divorced and ended up losing her job, and became homeless. They were living with friends and really struggling. The school expelled the child because he’d had three suspensions—the last one for selling candy to try to raise enough money to buy a new shoes and a new uniform shirt. I felt that if the mother went and told her story that the school would understand and wouldn’t hold up the expulsion. She didn’t want the school to know how impoverished she was but I convinced her to do it, so she came and told all of these people what she was going through—about her struggles. I thought for sure the board would overturn the expulsion, not just because her story was so compelling, but because there wasn’t actually anything in the school’s discipline book about selling candy. But they upheld it and it broke my heart that this kid was being put out of school because he was poor.

    Little prisons
    The majority of schools in New Orleans have these overly rigid disciplinary codes—they’re run like little prisons. The schools aren’t nurturing and they aren’t developmentally appropriate. Children need social development time. They need recess, they need to be able to talk at lunch. You’ll hear the schools say *we’re providing structured social development*—but there’s no such thing! If you have to manage kids’ social development, it’s not social development. Typically you’ll hear from school leaders that they have to have this overly rigid school climate because the school has just opened and it’s chaotic. They’ll say something like *we need these rules in place until we get a structured, calm environment, then we can make it less rigid. But first we have to calm these children and get them to a place of orderliness.* But children will never be calm, orderly robots unless there’s something wrong with them. They’re never going to get to the place that you’ve decided is necessary before they can have more freedom. In order for children to know how to operate in freedom, they have to have freedom to operate in. We don’t teach kids to eat with a fork and spoon by not giving them a fork and spoon!

    Recess and recourse
    When parents ask me for advice about schools in New Orleans they never ask *what are the best schools*? They want to know what the least terrible schools are. I tell them to go for one of the Orleans Parish School Board schools because at least then they’ll have some recourse. I tell them to look for schools that have recess and try to find the good teachers. And if they end up at a school where the teachers are really young, look for developmentally appropriate material and bring it to the teacher—kind of like *educate the educator.* So many of the teachers in New Orleans are brand new—this isn’t their profession. They don’t know about child development or adolescent development. I also tell parents to document absolutely everything. If you have a problem with something that happens at the school, keep a record. Try to create an email trail and keep a log of everything that happens. At some point there is going to be a class-action suit because our children’s rights are being violated and we need as much documentation as possible.

    The choice to leave
    My daughter attended a kindergarten where the students spent most of the day doing worksheets. I didn’t feel that this was in any way developmentally appropriate. At six years old, my daughter should love math—I love math!—but the school was basically fostering a hatred of math. Their response was basically *if you don’t like our program, you have the choice to leave.* So I left. As of last year, though, parents in New Orleans no longer have the choice to leave schools they’re unhappy with after October 1st. In order to transfer, you have to get the approval of the school board to agree to release your child, and you have to get the other school to agree to take your child. Our children are prisoners—are kids are inmates—and in order to get them out, we have to beg for pardons, which may or may not be granted.

    A sorting mechanism
    OneApp, the centralized enrollment system for the New Orleans schools, is supposed to make it easy for parents in the city to have their choice of schools. But parents aren’t going to have real choice just because they filled out the OneApp application. For example, you can’t see a school’s discipline guide before you register your child. And if I want my child to go to a school that has recess, art or educates the whole child, I have very little choice at all. I can try for one of the high-performing charters—the magnet schools that existed before the storm—but which are now even harder to get into than they were before Katrina. Parents of special needs kids, by the way, have even less choice, because so few of the schools will accept their children at all. What OneApp does is ensure that the various charter operators get the enrollment that they were promised. No matter how bad the school is, or how terrible the climate, we’re going to make sure that you get those kids.

    Fight harder than you’ve ever fought
    If New Orleans is being held up as a model for the schools in your community, I have some advice for you. Fight harder than you’ve ever fought to make sure that this doesn’t happen to you. Because once you’re in it, it’s so hard to get out of. Fight tooth and nail. If people come to your community and try to sell you bull crap, come down here and talk to us first. Read anything you can get your hands on. They’ll tell you that your input matters, that your schools are going to be run according to a community model. Don’t believe it. At the end of the day, they could care less about what kind of schools you want. In fact, I’m pretty sure that we said that we wanted arts and music in our schools—that those were really important to us in a city like New Orleans that’s build on arts and music and culture. Instead we got prisons.

    BreakOUT! Responds to Gabourey Sidibe "Tranny" Comments on Arsenio Hall

     Cache   

    By Trinity and BreakOUT! Crossposted from the BreakOUT! blog. As one of the “trannies” residing in New Orleans, Louisiana I took offense with the statement made by one of the Black actresses I adore and love to watch behind the camera, Gabourey Sidibe, a.k.a. Queenie from Coven, when she recently repeatedly used the word “tranny” on Arsenio Hall.

    “There’s a bar that we would frequent…and when we were leaving every single time there was always a gang of cops arresting trannies.”

    She went on to say, “I don't know what goes on with trannies, but that tranny on tranny crime needs to stop.”

    The words she uttered over and over again were not funny and didn’t sit well with me. Although the Bible says thou shall not judge, I just couldn’t help but to call it like I see it, and take an eye for an eye. I found myself stereotyping her and her body as a large, Black woman right back, instead of thinking about the real issue at hand.  As Black women who have had our bodies scrutinized, I didn’t understand how she would have any room to throw awful names and make light of a situation she clearly knows nothing about.

    “Tranny, tranny, tranny, tranny, tranny” is all that I heard during that brief segment with Arsenio Hall and Gabourey Sidibe.

    It all started when Ms. Sidibe was asked what her time in New Orleans was like. She proceeded to say it was slow. As long as I’ve lived in New Orleans, it’s been the port of all things great. It sounds to me like she just didn’t know where to get down at our many clubs, venues, and hole-in-the-wall bars around the city! Being a native of New Orleans and having traveled to all the major hotspots in the United States, I know that can’t no other area code party like the 504.  And, THAT is what caused the first strike against Queenie.

    But being a woman of transgender experience and a member of BreakOUT!, an organization built around young trans women in New Orleans, is what made Ms. Sidibe’s next statement cut even deeper.

    Ms. Sidibe reported on live television that every time she would go to one of the many bars in the French Quarter, she would see a “gang of cops” arresting trannies.  She blamed it on “tranny on tranny violence.”

    If only she knew.

    If only she knew what type of trauma transgender women go through on a daily basis in the city of New Orleans.

    If only she had been informed prior to going on Mr. Hall’s show that the police specifically target and harass transgender women and that it’s actually “cop on tranny” violence.

    If only she knew that there are entire organizations like BreakOUT! that specifically target this kind of violence by the police that has such a deep and troubling history in our City.

    Probably the only thing Ms. Sidibe got right in her critique of New Orleans is that it truly is a “gang-like” mentality that causes our police department to be so violent.  This corruption, in turn, breeds crime.

    As transwomen, we have a story to tell about the about the New Orleans Police Department and their unjust treatment of members of the LGBTQ community.

    Most transwomen who are workers in the underground sex industry have really seen the wrath of the New Orleans Police Department- from being raped, wrongfully arrested, and even being stopped for no reason at all.  Most of us don’t even get the pleasure of walking down our City’s main attraction, Bourbon St., for all of the scrutiny and bashing by both the police and patrons.

    Can you imagine buying the best of clothes, stepping out on Bourbon St. at night and taking in the ambiance, only to not even make it a block down the street before you’re being swiffed away in handcuffs, accused of a crime you never committed?  Well, Ms. Sidibe, that is our reality as so-called “trannies” in New Orleans.

    Gabourey pulled a cheap shot but when it was all said and done, she did apologize. In this world, we have to learn to forgive and forget. Eventually people will get the picture that we as transwomen are fabulous in every way and we are here to stay. We as transwomen know where we where we come from and we know where we are going. We know that we don’t need anyone’s approval to live our lives, whether it is gangs of police officers or Hollywood actresses.

    Our lives are full of bumps and forks in the road, but as trans women we strive to become better and better everyday no matter what.  Someday we will get respect and people will see our struggle- but until then, we will continue to organize and demand respect both from the state and the streets through groups like BreakOUT!  We will be the best, hardest working Black women to ever grace this Earth.  We are not "trannies."  We are transgender women.  We are women!
