Market Scan® Teams with Industry Leader to Help Automotive Lenders Better Understand the Local Finance Market and Increase Market Share

 Cache   

 Camarillo, Calif. and New York, N.Y., October 29, 2019 – Market Scan Information Systems, Inc., an industry-leading automotive data and solutions provider, today announced a joint effort with Experian to help automotive lenders gain insight into competitors’ ever-changing rate and programs pricing. Through the collaboration, Experian and Market Scan will offer mGauge, a state-of-the-art analysis tool, to automotive lenders hoping to gain more insight into the interest rates that competitors offer based on geography, vehicle and credit risk tier.  

“We are excited and proud to join with Experian to evolve automotive commerce,” said Market Scan President and Co-Founder, Rusty West. “With Experian’s extensive industry relationships and Market Scan’s unique software, data and calculation technologies, this joint effort builds on the natural synergies between our two companies. Together, we will offer one-of-a-kind solutions that empower automotive lenders and OEMs to create compelling and competitive programs for their clients and specific offers directed at consumers.”     

Powered by Market Scan’s proprietary technology, analytics and data, mGauge, analyzes competitors’ published lease and loan finance programs. This enables lenders to create and offer competitive finance options for in-market car buyers and automotive dealers—ultimately leading to an increased bottom line and improved customer loyalty. For example, a lender could see that a competitor will offer a subprime car shopper a specific rate on a full-sized pickup truck—opening the door to offer a better interest rate or match the loan terms. 

“In an overly competitive marketplace, lenders need to find ways to attract and retain car shoppers—comparable loans terms are a keen way to accomplish that goal,” said John Gray, Experian’s President of Automotive. “Unique insight into how competitors are pricing vehicles can level the playing field across the lender spectrum. More importantly, consumers can access favorable loan terms that can make vehicles more affordable and improve their financial health down the road.”

Opinion | Personalization Has Failed Us - The New York Times

 Cache   
Our tastes are rarely simple enough for an algorithm to make sense of. You may love the Beatles but hate the Rolling Stones. You might despise William Gibson but adore Neal Stephenson. You may be a fan of Deep Impact or Armageddon, but (probably) not both. Our preferences about what we like are often arbitrary, disjointed from the logic required for an algorithm to function. Over at Vox, Kyle Chayka discusses this in regard to fashion, asking, “How good of a tastemaker can a machine ultimately be?” These recommendations rarely go past the boundaries of what we already know and enjoy, and that’s not usually how we find our next favorite thing. There’s no risk factor with curated media. via www.nytimes.com True, true, true.

Thirteen International Artists Showcase Figurative, Introspective Works in "Universe 2"

 Cache   

The Garage Gallery in Amsterdam is holding a group exhibition featuring 13 international artists whose "creative practices relies on building their own casts of characters, settings, and events." Curated by Sasha Bogojev, a writer, curator and contributing editor at Juxtapoz Magazine, "Universe 2" continues to push the boundaries of figurative art, showcasing contemporary styles that range from polished pop art to gestural-based depictions. A vibrant selection of works update traditional painting styles with the playfulness and experimentation of the modern world. The artists are connected through their figurative artwork, but draw inspiration from different sources like photography, pop culture, cartoons and manga. Influenced by historical art movements like abstraction, surrealism and classic portraiture, the artists draw viewers in with familiar elements, simultaneously leaving them perplexed with their expressive scenes.For example, Baldur Helgason's anxious self-portrait contrasts with So Youn Lee's gentle, "cotton-candy psychedelia."

Ksubi Taps Street Artist Hidji for "The Seven Deadly Sins" Collection

 Cache   

After partnering with Travis Scott for a capsule collection in 2017, Australian fashion label Ksubi is teaming up with New York City-based street artist Hidji World for a graphic-heavy collection of hoodies and T-shirts. Shot by AWGE associate Bladi, the accompanying lookbook spotlights the items on models lounging in a luxurious apartment.Entitled "The Seven Deadly Sins," the collection showcases Hidji's artistic interpretation of all seven sins, often seen in a matching setting. For example, showcased among piles of food, a black hoodie with a bold abstract graphic and the phrase "Eat Me" refers to the sin of 'Gluttony.' T-shirts sporting illustrations of hearts and money represent 'Lust' and 'Greed,' respectively, as money floats by from off-camera.Throughout, Ksubi's black-and-white staple pieces are updated with Hidji's distinct designs to portray the "Seven Deadly Sins" in a playful, almost childish way; Hidji's vibrant colorways and a loose, doodle-like style lend serious topics such as wrath, envy and pride a lighthearted touch.To celebrate the launch, Hidji is developing an art installation at Ksubi's New York store location which will be unveiled on November 21. On that same day, the entire Hidji x Ksubi collection will be available to purchase at Ksubi's global flagship stores and select retailers.Elsewhere, Helmut Lang recruited artist Marc Hundley for a collection of limited-edition, hand-stenciled pieces.

NYT: В Ливию прибыли около 200 российских бойцов

 Cache   

Около 200 российских бойцов прибыли в Ливию за последние шесть недель в рамках обширной кампании Кремля по восстановлению влияния на Ближнем Востоке и в Африке, сообщила газета The New York Times. По данным издания, Россия вмешалась в конфликт в интересах лидера ополченцев Халифы Хафтара.

Издание пишет, что теперь Россия ведет более прямолинейную работу по влиянию на результат хаотичной гражданской войны в Ливии.

Она отправила в страну передовые истребители «Сухой», наносит скоординированные ракетные и высокоточные артиллерийские удары и использует снайперов, то есть разыгрывает тот же сценарий, который сделал Москву влиятельной силой в гражданской войне в Сирии, отмечается в публикации.

«Происходит в точности то же самое, что и в Сирии», – заявил изданию Фатхи Башага, министр внутренних дел временного правительства национального единства в Триполи.

Каким бы ни оказалось его влияние на результат, российское вмешательство уже, по сути, предоставило Москве право вето на любое урегулирование конфликта, указывает New York Times.

Россия вмешалась на стороне лидера ополченцев Халифы Хафтара, который базируется в восточной Ливии и также поддерживается Объединенными Арабскими Эмиратами, Египтом, Саудовской Аравией и иногда Францией.

Газета пишет, что сторонники Хафтара связывают с ним свои самые большие надежды на сдерживание радикального ислама, подавление боевиков и восстановление авторитарного порядка.

Trump to appeal NY tax case ruling to Supreme Court

 Cache   

Washington: A US federal appeals court has ruled the accounting firm that works for President Donald Trump must release his tax returns to New York state authorities investigating him, but an attorney said the decision would be appealed to the Supreme Court.

"The decision of the 2nd Circuit will be taken to the Supreme Court," Jay Sekulow, an attorney for the President, said in a statement on Monday.

"The issue raised in this case goes to the heart of our Republic. The constitutional issues are significant."

On October 7, a federal judge in New York rejected a lawsuit filed by Trump in an attempt to avoid having to turn over his tax returns after the Manhattan District Attorney's Office sought to obtain the documents as part of an investigation into hush money payments made during the 2016 campaign, reports Efe news.

Trump's attorneys argued that the tax returns did not have to be released, citing presidential immunity.

The three-judge appeals panel, however, ruled on Monday that prosecutors had requested the tax returns and other documents from Mazars USA and not the President, and ordered the accounting firm to comply with a subpoena issued by the District Attorney's office.

"We hold, however, that any presidential immunity from state criminal process does not extend to investigative steps like the grand jury subpoena at issue here," the ruling written by the panel's chief judge, Robert Katzmann, said.

Trump contends that the investigation by the District Attorney's office is politically motivated and has fought efforts by prosecutors to obtain his tax returns.

Mazars USA, for its part, said it would comply with the appeals court's ruling.

"Mazars USA will respect the legal process and fully comply with its legal obligations... We believe strongly in the ethical and professional rules and regulations that govern our industry, our work and our client interactions.

"As a matter of firm policy and professional rules, we do not comment on the work we conduct for our clients," the accounting firm said in a statement.

While the Constitution does not require heads of state to release their tax returns, Trump is the first President since Gerald Ford (1974-1977) who has not made his tax return public each year.


          

US stocks close higher on energy, tech gains

 Cache   

New York: Gains in energy and technology stocks helped Wall Street's three main indexes close higher.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 114.75 points, or 0.42 per cent, to 27,462.11 on Monday. The S&P 500 rallied 11.36 points, or 0.37 per cent, to 3,078.27. The Nasdaq Composite Index was up 46.80 points, or 0.56 per cent, to 8,433.20, Xinhua reported.

Seven of the 11 primary S&P 500 sectors traded higher around market close, with the energy sector up 3.15 per cent, leading the winners.

The majority of the 30 blue-chip stocks in the Dow extended gains around the closing bell, with shares of Chevron and Walgreens Boots Alliance up nearly 4.61 per cent and 3.96 per cent, respectively, leading the gainers.

Shares of widely-watched trade sensitive 3M and Intel also advanced over 2.83 per cent and around 1.95 per cent, respectively.

Shares of Under Armor slumped 18.92 per cent, after the athletic apparel brand slashed its full-year revenue guidance.

On the economic front, US factory goods orders retreated 0.6 per cent in September, following an 0.1-per cent drop in August, the Census Bureau said Monday.

The reading came worse than an estimated 0.5-per cent fall by economists polled by Reuters and an expected 0.4-per cent decrease by a MarketWatch survey.

Wall Street had a massive rally on Friday with the 30-stock index closing up 301.13 points to 27,347.36, fueled by better-than-anticipated jobs data.

US employers added 128,000 jobs in October, the US Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Friday. The reading topped the 75,000 forecast of economists surveyed by MarketWatch.


          

Adobe joins NYT, Twitter to ensure digital content attribution

 Cache   

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Attribution Science Is Empowering Lawyers To Turn Climate Change Into The Next Asbestos Liability

 Cache   
The work of a Norwegian geography academic is finally bearing fruit. Richard Heede spent a decade trying to determine whether he could pin down to what degree individual companies contributed to climate change. By 2013, according to this report in Politico, he had his answer. Heede determined that through mergers and acquisitions and other economic activity, 90 companies worldwide were responsible for emitting nearly two-thirds of the world’s greenhouse gases since the dawn of the industrial revolution. So what does this mean? In the area of liability, Heede’s discipline of “attribution science” is being put to the test in the courts. New York’s Attorney General Letitia James sued Exxon Mobil, accusing the company of securities fraud. She alleges that Exxon Mobil was duplicitous in how it measured the impact of carbon-reduction policies on its business. She alleges that the company had an internal estimate for that cost that was different than the estimate it presented to investors. But the potential for liability in this case goes far beyond Exxon Mobil’s clash with James.

Noah, Norton Slam Trump as 'Racist Landlord from New York Who's Destroying the World'

 Cache   
On Tuesday, Daily Show host Trevor Noah sat down with actor/director Edward Norton to talk about his new movie "Motherless Brooklyn." When discussing the plot of the film, Noah argued that "although the story's set in the 50s, it feels very much applicable to what life is like today." While he stressed that he did not want to "spoil anything" for his audience, Noah decided to inform them that "this is basically a story about a racist landlord from New York who's destroying the world." Seeming to agree with Noah's implicit yet obvious comparison of the movie character to President Trump, Norton highlighted how "he's played by Alec Baldwin," who has made a career out of mercilessly mocking the President on Saturday Night Live. Norton could not resist taking shots at Trump either, claiming "there's no wigs involved, no small hands" while denying that the antagonist in the movie was "based on our insane clown President."

New Bill Would Require Schools to Monitor Social Media

 Cache   

newly introduced federal bill seeks to heighten security at American schools by encouraging districts to adopt social media monitoring programs.

The controversial practice, which uses algorithms to crawl and index public profiles of popular sites like Twitter and Facebook, has grown in popularity over the last several years, as administrators look to new and emergent technologies to heighten school safety — and potentially head off the next mass shooting.  

Now the Restoring, Enhancing, Securing, and Promoting Our Nation's Safety Efforts Act or RESPONSE Act, introduced by Texas Sen. John Cornyn, advocates for numerous policies aimed at increasing school security, including a "Children's Internet Protection" amendment that encourages districts to invest in programs that detect "online activities of minors who are at risk of committing self-harm or extreme violence against others." Under the bill, almost all federally funded schools would be required to install software of this kind.

The bill comes at a time when schools are already investing more heavily in this technology. Earlier this year, a review by the Brennan Center for Justice of self-reported procurement orders from schools across the country showed that the number of school districts purchasing such software rose from just 6 in 2013 to 63 in 2018. 

Companies like Geo Listening, Varsity Monitor and Snaptrends have all made a name for themselves by offering school administrators the ability to monitor and potentially police signs of violent thoughts and behavior, as well as offensive behavior and language. The net cast can often be wide, like one recently deployed in Juneau, Alaska, that scans for all "mentions of violence, self-harm, drug use, sexual content and cyberbullying" in students' school email accounts. 

The relative affordability of these programs — with a median annual expense of $8,417 — makes them appealing additions to district security systems. 

These businesses take slightly different approaches, depending on their specific security focus. Geo Listening, for instance, is marketed as a straightforward monitoring system that sends administrators daily reports with screenshots of flagged content from the monitored sites. These reports will include the poster's name, the time and location of the posting, and a short commentary of why the post was flagged. Posts are typically "flagged for negative content ... counter to the school code of conduct, evidencing violent threats to other students or the school, cyberbullying, or self-harm," according to a recent study in which the company was profiled.  

Varsity Monitor, meanwhile, is geared specifically toward surveilling student athletes at major universities, for the purposes of making sure the students are compliant with ethics codes. Schools pay upward of $7,000 a year to track "obscenities, offensive commentary or words like 'free,' which could indicate that a player has accepted a gift in violation of N.C.A.A. rules," according to the New York Times

However, while there is a growing demand for these services, researchers are largely split on whether these programs actually prevent violence.  

"Aside from anecdotes promoted by the companies that sell this software, there is no proof that these surveillance tools work," the Brennan Center report concludes, also critiquing the software's propensity for error, and the kinds of misinterpretation that can take place when machines sift through the slang-saturated conversations of teenagers. 

When paired with other forms of surveillance, the software has concerned critics for its broad reach and lack of public oversight.

The Aspen Institute, for instance, recently released a brief report on data collection at school systems in Florida, where the state's Department of Education recently launched a controversial Schools Safety Portal (FSSP). The portal mandates that state schools collect large amounts of student data — a process that is augmented by the deployment of social media monitoring programs.  

The report argues that "preventing school shootings through data is fraught with ethical and technical risks, including a lack of data quality and the potential for biases across multiple levels of predictive algorithms." The report doesn't outright indict the practice itself, arguing instead that policies should be developed to increase process transparency and accountability, while deploying experts to ensure data quality.

The RESPONSE Act has seen significant support among a constellation of mental health and law enforcement organizations. In October, the bill was referred to the Senate Committee on the Judiciary where it is awaiting further review.

Isabella Lundgren - Out of the Bell Jar

 Cache   
Isabella Lundgrens nya album

Recension: Jazzsångerskan Isabella Lundgren tolkar Bob Dylan på sitt nya album Out of the Bell Jar. Visst går hon utanför sin egen säkerhetszon, men som hon gör det. I varje ton som hon sjunger kan man höra hennes kärlek till Dylans texter och musik.

Jazzsångerskan Isabella Lundgren tolkar Bob Dylan på sitt nya album Out of the Bell Jar. Visst går hon utanför sin egen säkerhetszon, men som hon gör det. I varje ton som hon sjunger kan man höra hennes kärlek till Dylans texter och musik.

 

Hennes relation till Bob Dylan började genom att hennes första stora kärlek var en stor Dylan-fan. Mest för att kunna imponera på honom, genom att slänga ur sig ett citat ur någon Dylan-låt när de passerade varandra i skolkorridoren så gick hon och köpte sig "The times they are a changing".

Ett par år senare följde Isabella Lundgren i Bob Dylans fotspår då hon flyttade till New York där hon träffade bluesmusikern Brian Kramer. De hade då, i april 2010 ingen aning om att de skulle komma att samarbeta på den nu, 2019, nysläppta skivan. Amerikanen Brian Kramer har nämligen skrivit musiken till Isabella Lundgrens text till titelspåret "Out of the Bell Jar".

 

Brian Kramer berättar för mig om deras första möte.

- Vi träffades på Café Vivaldi i Greenwich Village. Isabella jobbade där. Det var kvällen innan jag skulle åka hem till Sverige igen.

 

Brian uppträdde där två kvällar.
- Ägaren frågade om vi kunde spela något tillsammans eftersom han visste att Isabella var sångerska. Vi körde en enkel blues och det var helt fantastiskt. Isabellas röst lät som en trumpet och vi kände samhörighet genom musiken.

Brian som då ledde bluesjam på Stampen i Gamla stan, bjöd dit Isabella. I september kom ett mail att hon ville sjunga blues. Ett år eller så efter det upptäcktes Isabella. De har hållit kontakt sedan dess. Brian blev ändå förvånad när han, för en tid sedan, plötsligt fick ett sms från Isabella med en text hon ville att Brian skulle tonsätta. Brian läste texten och försökte att hitta rytmen i orden. Efter bara 10-15 minuter hittade han ackorden och en struktur. Han spelade in sitt melodiförslag och skickade till Isabella.

- Jag undrade så vad hon skulle tycka?

 

Isabella Lundgren gillade Brians melodi på en gång även om hon ville att den skulle gå lite långsammare. Detta blev till slut titelspåret till albumet. Brian spelar naturligtvis gitarr på inspelningen. Fast detta är det enda spåret som inte är någon tolkning av Dylan så ger det verkligen en Dylan-känsla.

 

Isabella Lundgrens text beskriver inte bara hennes egen "resa", utan hon har snyggt vävt in kända titlar av Dylan-kompositioner i texten. Brian Kramers fina gitarrspel förhöjer också känslan.

Isabella Lundgrens övriga tolkningar av 6 stycken Dylan-låtar är också helt magnifika. Hennes röst trollbinder mig och orden framträder på ett helt annat sätt än när Dylan sjunger. Den jazziga inramningen av låtarna gör dem till något helt annat än originalen. Att de är så annorlunda är också vad som gör dem så bra. Det känns verkligen att Isabella Lundgren älskar Bob Dylans texter och musik. En mer storartad hyllning har jag svårt att föreställa mig. Jag hoppas verkligen att Bob Dylan själv kommer att få höra detta. Han borde älska det!

 

Det finns förstås inget annat betyg att ge Isabella Lundgren och hennes album, Out of the Bell Jar, än 10/10

Trump i pełzający zamach stanu...

 Cache   
Obserwując dzisiejsze zmagania wśród elit politycznych US można powiedzieć, że Trump jest granatem rzuconym w dotychczasowy wypracowany porządek globalnych  sił i układów, dlatego wiele dłoni chciałoby go jak najszybciej pochwycić i odrzucić tak szybko i daleko jak tylko się da!Trybun Trump wykazując niesmak wobec upachnionego politycznego szamba, zdecydował się naruszyć interesy elit globalnego supermocarstwa, dlatego dziś jest pod stałym ogniem globalistów dzień i noc. Zachciało mu się odbudowania suwerenności Ameryki, powrotu do respektowania jej tradycyjnych wartości, granic, wolności, praw, rodziny i szacunku do swoistego patriotyzmu. Przez to narusza dotychczasowy międzynarodowy biznesowy i polityczny układ sił stworzony przez swoich poprzedników (np. polityka wobec Chin), jak również nie dążąc do wojny (Iran, Rosja, Korea Płn.) zagraża również dobrze prosperujacemu amerykańskiemu sektorowi zbrojeniowemu. Zagraża lukratywnym amerykańskim  interesom wzbogacającym potężne korporacje, narażając się rozpasanym lobbystom jak i powiązanej z nimi wynarodowionej biurokracji.  Trump zapragnął wyprząc Amerykę z już rozpędzonego na podbój świata globalistycznego zaprzęgu, dlatego naraził się biurokracji Deep State i siłom globalnego socjalizmu. Nikt nie wie jak skończy się ten nierówny pojedynek Dawida Trumpa z Sorosem Goliatem. Na naszych oczach globalistyczni lewacy przygotowują stos (impeachment) na którym z uśmiechem i satysfakcją chcieliby spalić szanse Trumpa na drugą prezydencką kadencję. Jednak dla zamachowców Trump (nawet bez własnego politycznego zaplecza) opierający się na pragnieniach zwykłych Amerykanów, nie jest i nie będzie łatwym orzechem do zgryzienia. Czas pokaże, że niejeden polityk w tym procesie straci własne zęby…     Speaker Nancy Pelosi, dziewczynka z zapałkami...W Ameryce wrze, magnateria i mandarini starego imperium skupieni w tłustym i skostniałym Deep State, wspomagani przez kompleks militarno-przemysłowy, przed którym przyszłe pokolenia już w latach 50-tych ubiegłego wieku ostrzegał prezydent Dwight Eisenhower dzielnie stawia opór trybunowi Trumpowi, który wchodzi w rolę Kemala Ataturka i poniekąd Putina. Ci panowie również podjęli się trudnego zadania odbudowy zagrożonego imperium w nowych niesprzyjających warunkach. Jest zrozumiałym, że dzisiejsi bankowi włodarze świata chcą przemienić zastany, stary świat państw narodowych, lokalnych systemów wartości, religii i kultur w ociekający słodką nadzieją i krwawą praktyką totalitarny Nowy Wspaniały Świat. Staremu rozkwitającemu  od tysięcy lat światu grozi już rozpędzony Nowy Światowy Porządek, który montuje swoje uderzeniowe sotnie z rozmaitych mniejszości posługując się socjalizmem, rasizmem, ateizmem, genderyzmem i anarchizmem.Jedną z głównych zasad i praw tego świata obok cykliczności zjawisk jest przemijanie. Słowem “nic nie może wiecznie trwać” jak śpiewała wspaniała Anna Jantar, co również odnosi się do kolejnych historycznych imperiów. Według popularnego w Polsce amerykańskiego politologa (George Friedman, “Następne 100 lat”) każdy naród wyposażony jest jakby w swoje geny, swój blue print, zapis kodu szkieletu swoich charakterystycznych tendencji i historycznych predyspozycji. Pochód Ameryki na drodze do osiągnięcia statusu światowego hegemona związany jest z pomaganiem mocarstwom będącym w potrzebie, co jest dość intratnym biznesem. Tak było w I jak i w II wojnie światowej, kiedy wchodzącej w ostatnim stadium rozgrywającej się wojny  Ameryce pozwalało zdobyć niekwestionowaną pozycję lidera, szczególnie po wygraniu “zimnej” wojny z Sowietami. Amerykańskie korporacje wykorzystywały żołnierskie buty do wchodzenia na najbardziej zyskowne rynki tego świata, w ten sposób jednak nabijając sobie kiesę rozprzestrzeniały nowoczesne technologie co pozytywnie wpływało na wydobycie setek milionów ludzi z ubóstwa (Chiny, Indie). Jednak w ten sposób chodowały sobie konkurencję z którą dziś muszą walczyć o utrzymanie swojej dominującej pozycji. Jednocześnie poprzez silne związki elit biznesowych z obsługującymi je biurokratami z Deep State, powoli zapomniano o interesach Państwa i obywateli, którym powinno przecież  służyć. Kupieni przez globalistycznych bankierów biurokraci zaczęli reprezentować ideologię Nowego Porządku Światowego, często ze szkodą dla interesu swoich wyborców. Od czasu do czasu używając siły militarnej Ameryki, nie dlatego aby bronić jej żywotnych interesów, ale żeby przyspieszać kolejne etapy w urzeczywistnianiu nowej wizji świata, czasem wprost ze szkodą dla Ameryki. Z historii wiemy, że rewolucja jest ladacznicą, rozhuśtaną emocjonalnie dziwką, gotową na radykalne zmiany, zupełnie nie zainteresowaną w utrzymaniu starego porządku rzeczy.  Witamy wśród dylematów i zmagań dzisiejszej Ameryki...Panując w sferze politycznej, władając wypasem medialnym  wobec wyborców, używając tłustych kotów z wielkich korporacji i wpływając na nie przez antagonizowanie sponsorowanej anarchizującej lewicy, panując i rewolucyjnie uzbrajając system edukacji, ośrodki kierownicze NWO były na kursie i na ścieżce. Wtedy jak z kapelusza magika pojawił się Trump. Biznesmen, showman, gwiazda telewizyjna ze skomplikowanym i urozmaiconym życiem osobistym i rodzinnym, były członek Partii Demokratycznej, Partii Reform (Ross Perot) i wreszcie Republikanin. Biznesmen od dawna zaprzyjaźniony z nowojorskimi Żydami dziś zbliżony (córka Ivanka przeszła na judaizm) z sektą Chabad Lubawicz (o wielkich wpływach w Rosji, na Ukrainie i w Polsce). Trump uchodzi za najbardziej pro żydowskiego prezydenta US, w Izraelu nazywany nawet  “królem żydowskim”. Człowiek dobrze znający polityków, ich skorumpowany świat, człowiek odważny, owładnięty potrzebą sukcesu i wyposażony w mega ego. Po niespodziewanym znokautowaniu tradycyjnych pretendentów do prezydentury z ramienia Partii Republikańskiej, praktycznie wszystkich zaskoczył wygrywając z mocno osadzoną w systemie Hillary Clinton. Przypomnijmy, że zwycięstwo Trumpa oznaczało początek rozgałęzionych wariantów spisku elit gdyż pokonane w procesie wyborczym nigdy nie uznały jego zwycięstwa i natychmiast przystąpiły do kreowania kolejnych pułapek, mających na celu skompromitowanie Trumpa i pozbawienia go prezydentury. Co interesujące wśród “never-Trumpers” znaleźli się też związani z klanem Bushów neocons (byli trockiści zwolennicy ciągłych interwencji na Bliskim Wschodzie na rzecz Izraela), obawiali się oni Trumpa gdyż krytykował generalnie te niepotrzebne wojny (kasa, krew) i zapowiadał ich zakończenie.  Jednak atakowany Trump szybko znalazł sojuszników wśród amerykańskich syjonistów (tak Żydów, jak i wpływowych protestantów) co przełożyło się na kontrowersyjne przeniesienie ambasady US z Tel Awiwu do Jerozolimy, oraz uznania suwerenności Izraela nad okupowanymi syryjskimi Wzgórzami Golan. Przypomnijmy, że amerykańscy Żydzi w swojej większości (ok.70%) głosowali na Hillary Clinton (rywalkę Trumpa), są wyznania lewicowego i nie popierają dyskryminacyjnej polityki Izraela wobec Palestyńczyków. Trump próbuje zakończyć całe lata trwające wojny, chce zabezpieczenia południowej granicy z Meksykiem (integralność, suwerenność państwa), próbuje zachęcić amerykański kapitał do powrotu z Chin i innych krajów i produkcji w US, obcina jak może biurokratyczne regulacje dławiące biznes, właśnie dlatego naraża się globalistom. Oni tak ciężko pracowali nad osiągnięciem swoich celów, nie to , aby jakiś zwariowany spadochroniarz broniący idei państwa narodowego im to wszystko teraz zepsuł! Dlatego bolszewicka czujność i przekonanie o wdrażaniu jedynej sprawiedliwej, nowoczesnej i najlepszej wizji nowego świata nie pozwala im tolerować takie próby zawracania kursu historii przez jakiegoś amatora ciemnogrodu.Mamy pewne podobieństwo do sytuacji polskiej, kiedy jakiekolwiek patriotyczne reformy nawet nieśmiałe próby “polonizacji” sądów, próba przywrócenia prawd historycznych i pozamiatania po zdechłym imperium sowieckim, którego cuchnące aktywa przejęli amerykańscy globaliści (Soros plus) z ich młodszymi braćmi z Berlina i Brukseli powoduje inspirowanie anarchizującej tłuszczy i jej “zeuropeizowanych” liderów poupychanych przez brukselko-berlińskich globalistów w rozmaitych lewackich partyjkach i biznesach aborcyjnych,  gender, czy innych sotniach postępu.Naturalnie, że w związku z powyższym Trump jest w poważnych kłopotach i walczy w ciągłym okrążeniu jednak pod ręką ma też poważne atuty. W ciągu jego prawie 3 letniej kadencji gospodarka ma się naprawdę dobrze mimo, że Trump podejmuje się dość ryzykownych reform na kierunku chińskim, aby liderów chińskiej dyktatury komunistycznej zmusić do proporcjonalnej wymiany, na równych warunkach. Problem w tym, że Trump tu naraża się ważnym rodzinom i korporacjom amerykańskim przez całe dekady czerpiącym ogromne dochody z aktywności na kierunku chińskim. Jednak dla Trumpa najważniejszym tu jest przyszłość amerykańskiej mocarstwowej pozycji, stąd jego prośba do amerykańskich biznesów i korporacji o opuszczenie Chin i przeniesienie produkcji i technologii do US, bądź innych państw. Jak wiemy dotychczasowy oszałamiający roczny wzrost chińskiej gospodarki ulega już spowolnieniu, choć jest ciągle wysoki. Ciągle atakowany i dekoncentrowany Trump ma się czym pochwalić. W ciągu niespełna 3 lat przybyło ok. 6,5 mln nowych miejsc pracy (w tym 500 tys. w wytwórczości), przeciętnie 161 tys. nowych miejsc pracy miesięcznie w 2019 r! Stopa bezrobocia jest najniższa od 50 lat i wynosi 3,5%, wzrost płac przeciętnie ok. 3%. Giełda; DOW poszedł w górę 15,6% (w tym roku), NASDAQ 24%, S&P500 20,6%. Od początku kadencji Trumpa DOW poszybował 47,1%, NASDAQ 58,7%, S&P500 41,3%. Więc wszyscy powinni bić mu brawo, a jednak pamiętajmy, że co unosi się w górę, będzie również spadać…Oczywiście nie wszystkie drogi Trumpa wyściełane są różami, szczególnie od kiedy w Kongresie (zatwierdzającym budżet i wydatki) większość zdobyli Demokraci. Wiadomo, że polityka to scena brudnej przepychanki. Kiedy więc Trump chciał więcej pieniędzy na modernizację armii, Demokraci zażądali podobnej podwyżki na swoje postępowe cele. W konsekwencji federalny deficyt budżetowy  na rok 2019 osiągnął $984 mld, czyli był aż 26% wyższy od poprzedniego z 2018 r. Co prawda rząd z tytułu ceł uzyskał $71 mld, aż 70% więcej niż w 2018 r. jednak ogromnie wzrosły wydatki na obronność i opiekę medyczną. Wpływy z podatków osiągnęły o 4% więcej (w porównaniu do roku ubiegłego) i wyniosły $3,4 bln (po miejscowemu 3,4 trylion), jednak deficyt skoczył aż 8% do $4,4 bln.  Dla ciekawych podam, że podatki od korporacji wynosiły $230 mld (wzrosły o 12%), a podatki od indywidualnych podatników wynosiły $1,7 bln (wzrost o 2%). Zwykle w okresie prosperity deficyt zmniejsza się, ale zaproponowane przez Trumpa cięcia w wydatkach nie znalazły zrozumienia w demokratycznym Kongresie. Trzeba przypomnieć, że Trump dwa lata temu przeprowadził reformę upraszczającą strukturę podatkową, w konsekwencji zmniejszającą podatki o $1,5 bln  argumentując, że pobudzi w ten sposób ekonomię, ograniczy bezrobocie i wydatki na pomoc społeczną i zwiększy wpływy właśnie z podatków...  Cały czas Demokraci są w ataku, totalnej opozycji przyświeca idea impeachmentu. Wielki Inkwizytor demokrata z Kalifornii Adam Schiff (ustosunkowany, jego siostra była żoną syna Sorosa) łżąc jak bura suka przy pomocy speaker Nancy Pelosi (demokratka z San Francisco, jedna z najbogatszych kobiet w Kongresie) usiłują uwikłać Trumpa w “mataczenie” i utrudnianie prac kilku komisji kongresowych, które pilnie poszukują materiałów, dowodów obciążających Prezydenta. Pierwszy atak nie wypalił, po dwuletnim poszukiwaniu przez specjalnego prokuratora Muellera  dowodów na “Russian collusion”, czyli rzekomą współpracę Trumpa z Putinem przeciwko Hillary Clinton w ostatniej kampanii prezydenckiej, choć to przecież sztab Hillary współpracował z Brytyjczykami i Rosjanami przeciwko Trumpowi (słynne “Steele dossier”). Wymyślono następne “mataczenie” tym razem zarzuca się Trumpowi, że naciskał nowo wybranego prezydenta Ukrainy  Żeleńskiego (podczas rozmowy gratulacyjnej) na wszczęcie antykorupcyjnego postępowania wobec przeciwnika Trumpa w nadchodzących prezydenckich wyborach, literalnie Joe Bidena i jego syna Huntera.  W 2014 r. wiceprezydent Joe Biden odpowiadał w administracji Obamy za ukraiński odcinek. Wtedy jego syn Hunter otrzymał lukratywną posadę w ukraińskiej firmie gazowej Burisma Holdings od biznesmena o imieniu Mykola Zlochevsky (były minister zasobów naturalnych). Zatrudnienie Huntera miało dać firmie osłonę przed antykorupcyjnymi podejrzeniami ukraińskiej prokuratury. Każdego miesiąca młody Biden  nie mający zielonego pojęcia o ukraińskim gazie otrzymywał od $60,000 do $80,000. Na światło dzienne wyszło nagranie Joe Bidena w którym chwalił się, że kiedy firmie Burisma zagrażał prokurator , Joe zadzwonił do prezydenta Ukrainy i poinformował go, że jeśli w ciągu 6 godzin (klasyczne ultimatum!) nie wyrzuci tego prokuratora to Biden wstrzyma amerykańską pomoc dla Ukrainy w wysokości $1 mld ! Oczywiście naiwny prokurator wylądował na bruku! Właśnie teraz Demokraci próbują wkręcić Trumpa w grzechy Bidena, oskarżając go o wykorzystywanie urzędu do wywierania nacisku na prezydenta Ukrainy, w celu wznowienia śledztwa przeciwko konkurentowi do prezydentury. Trump przed rozmową wiedząc o szalejącej tam korupcji wstrzymał również ok. $400 mln pomocy dla Ukrainy, ale rzekomo Ukraińcy o tym nawet nie wiedzieli. W Kongresie Demokraci wreszcie zdecydowali się przegłosować rozpoczęcie prac nad impeachmentem (dotąd robili to pół oficjalnie) czego dokonali posiadając większość, bez udziału Republikanów. Trzeba przypomnieć, że cała rozróba zaczęła się od doniesienia 33 letniego “whistleblower” (Eric Ciaramella), zaniepokojonego i oburzonego postępowaniem Trumpa w czasie rozmowy z prezydentem Żeleńskim. Okazuje się, że 33 latek jest stronniczym demokratą i nie miał dostępu do toczącej się rozmowy prezydentów, a jedynie poznał relację, jednego z przysłuchujących się członków National Security Council. Ten sam “donosiciel” jakiś czas temu stracił pracę w NSC przy prezydencie z powodu podejrzenia, że dokonywał nielegalnych przecieków do mediów i obecnie pracuje w centrali CIA. Również okazało się, że wcześniej pracował jako analityk CIA na odcinku ukraińskim dla Bidena i zagożałego przeciwnika Trumpa, byłego szefa CIA (za Obamy) Johna Brennana. Jego informatorem odnośnie rozmowy prezydentów był ppłk Alexander Vindman (kiedy miał 3 lata przybył do US z rodzicami z sowieckiej Ukrainy), dekorowany weteran i członek NSC w Białym Domu, który było nie było doniósł na prezydenta totalnej opozycji. Sprawa może mieć drugie dno, gdyż Vindman  wcześniej odbywał rozmowy z politykami z Ukrainy podobno radząc im jak mają postępować z Trumpem. Na każdą próbę krytyki Vindmana Demokraci stają za nim murem wyliczając jego kombatanckie zasługi, co stoi w sprzeczności z ich dotychczasowym stosunkiem do służby wojskowej i braku szacunku do weteranów (np. sprawa gen. Michaela Flynna). Mając potrzebną większość w izbie niższej (Reprezentantów) Kongresu Demokraci mogą na podstawie nawet mało przekonywujących dowodów przegłosować impeachment Prezydenta i przesłać dalej do Senatu, który mając republikańską większość (do skazania prezydenta potrzebne jest ⅔ Senatu, czyli przynajmniej 67 głosów) może kongresowe artykuły impeachmentu po prostu odrzucić. Więc cała gra Demokratów raczej obliczona jest na obniżenie popularności Trumpa i osłabienie jego wizerunku w nadchodzących prezydenckich wyborach. Przy stałym nagłaśnianiu w posiadanych mainstreamowych mediach rozmaitych oskarżeń, ustawicznym rzucaniu błotem w Trumpa, Demokraci liczą na wywołanie złych skojarzeń i zwiększaniu szans  ich kandydata w wyborach prezydenckich. Aż 93% Demokratów popiera dalsze prace nad impeachmentem, wśród niezależnych wyborców poparcie wynosi 58% i wśród Republikanów ok 10%. Na dziś 46% ankietowanych pozytywnie ocenia prezydenta Trumpa, a 56% negatywnie (Rasmussen Reports), czyli mimo ciągłej negatywnej kampanii nie ma tu większych zmian.  Pewien problem jest z kobietami, 56% popiera impeachment, wobec tylko 42% mężczyzn. Trzeba przypomnieć, że już w dniu inauguracji Trumpa 20 stycznia 2016 r. “The New York Times” zamieścił tekst: “The Campaign to impeach President Trump Has Begun”. Do akcji przystąpił establishment imperium aktywizując Demokratów, media,  FBI, CIA i republikańskich Never Trumpers, wtedy na scenę wszedł Trump zewsząd otoczony ludźmi czyhającymi na każde jego potknięcie.Nie chcę cytować politycznych prognostyków od procentów, wszak oni byli w błędzie aż do ostatniej godziny przed zwycięstwem Trumpa w 2016 r. Uogólniając, w ogólnokrajowych sondażach Trump przegrywa z wszystkimi liderami demokratów, którzy kandydują na prezydenta, weźmy tylko jednego: Biden 51%, Trump 39%. Jednak jest to ocena na rok przed wyborami i jeszcze wiele może się wydarzyć, coś co może podnieść, lub zniszczyć szanse Trumpa. Ta grupa liderów peletonu u Demokratów (Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren (słynna Pocahontas, ulubienica Sorosa), Bernie Sanders (komuch, wnuczek Ziemi Beskidzkiej, nawet okazało się, że ma serce, ostatnio miał zawał), czy Kamala Harris, nie będą w stanie zwyciężyć z Trumpem, nie mają charyzmy, czy porywającego tłumy magnetyzmu. Dlatego wśród Demokratów pojawiają się nawet propozycje, aby jednak wystawić sprawdzoną 71 letnią Hillary Clinton, czy nawet miliardera, byłego burmistrza NYC Michaela Bloomberga. Czy szanse utrzymania prezydentury przez Trumpa rzeczywiście maleją? Tak jak w poprzednich wyborach Hillary Clinton nokautowała Trumpa w krajowych sondażach i rzeczywiście wygrała “popular vote”. Jednak w amerykańskim republikańskim  systemie o wyborze prezydenta nie decyduje (jak w demokracji) ogólna ilość głosów w kraju, ale głosowanie stanowych elektorów. Dlatego podobnie jak w ostatnich wyborach, podobnie i 2020 r. trzeba obserwować tak zwane wahające się stany, których elektorzy  zdecydowali o zwycięstwie Trumpa. Są to stany: Pennsylvania, Michigan, Florida, North Carolina, Wisconsin and Arizona. Na dzień dzisiejszy 43% wyborców w tych stanach chce impeachmentu Trumpa, ale aż 53% tego sobie nie życzy. Więc na razie Trump jest jeszcze bezpieczny, możemy tak powiedzieć szczególnie jak oglądamy nieprzebrane tłumy entuzjastycznych zwolenników Trumpa na jego wiecach.Przewodniczący Kongresowego Republikańskiego Komitetu Narodowego Tom Emmer wysłał list do swoich członków w którym ostrzega przed trudną walką wydaną zwolennikom Trumpa przez 3-ch miliarderów i zarazem radykalnych lewaków, którymi są: George Soros, Michael Bloomberg i  Tom Steyer (wszyscy są Żydami, ostatni po ojcu, obecnie episcopalian). Ci globalistyczni lewacy zarzucają wyborców setkami milionów dolarów tworząc ostrą anty republikańską propagandę.W sumie w tej toczącej się na naszych oczach walce wszyscy jesteśmy na ringu, albowiem walka toczy się między totalitarnym socjalistycznym globalizmem przed którym ostrzegał nas już George Orwell, a szansą Narodów na utrzymanie swoich tradycji, kultur, religii i wolności. Prawda jest taka, że ta walka wchodzi w krytyczną fazę, jeśli prześpimy, nie zachowamy się odpowiedzialnie  i nie staniemy w obronie naszych ideałów to wkrótce pozostaną nam już tylko walki odwrotowe... Jacek K.

When America Tried to Deport Its Radicals

On a winter night a hundred years ago, Ellis Island, the twenty-seven-acre patch of land in New York Harbor that had been the gateway to America for millions of hopeful immigrants, was playing the opposite role. It had been turned into a prison for several hundred men, and a few women, most of whom had […]

Yorick van Norden in Amerika

 Cache   
18 augustus 2018

We gaan onder de noemer 'Heaven Presents...' ons sterk maken voor bijzondere artiesten die een groter publiek verdienen. De eerste artiest waarmee wij een bijzondere samenwerking aangaan is Yorick van Norden. In de jongste Heaven kon je alvast lezen over zijn bijzondere nieuwe album The Jester dat op 14 september zal verschijnen bij Excelsior Recordings en de komende maanden zal Yorick met zijn band onder de noemer 'Heaven Presents... Yorick van Norden' door het land reizen. Deze week verscheen zijn nieuwe singleTrain In The Station (beluister hier).

Lees hieronder alvast het eerste deel van het reisverslag dat hij speciaal voor Heaven bijhield tijdens zijn reis naar de Verenigde Staten. Op haar verzoek bezocht hij de ernstig zieke Dawn Tessman Visser (48), die een groot fan is van de Haarlemse musicus.

Maandag 9 juli

Rond het middaguur vertrok ik vanaf Schiphol met een rechtstreekse vlucht van Delta Airlines naar Minneapolis. Om er zeker van te zijn dat ik mijn Martin D-35 gitaar uit 1976 als handbagage mee zou mogen nemen, had ik alvorens mijn vluchten te boeken al het nodige speurwerk verricht. Er bleek een website te zijn van een muzikantenvakbond waarop alle grote internationale luchtvaartmaatschappijen werden gerangschikt op hun beleid ten aanzien van vliegende musici. Sommige maatschappijen kregen een groen stoplicht, anderen een oranje stoplicht, maar verreweg de meesten het rode.

Dankzij het in-flight board entertainment, een gezellige buurvrouw en het naar luchtvaartmaatstaven goede eten en drinken vloog de negen uur durende reis letterlijk voorbij.

De muziekselectie aan boord verdient overigens nog een vermelding. Het aanbod was beperkt, maar zeer opvallend: meerdere liveplaten van Frank Zappa uit de jaren 80 (doe mij maar Zappa's werk uit de jaren zestig en vroege jaren zeventig) en de geweldige Sunshine Tomorrow 2 compilatie van The Beach Boys. Voor de gemiddelde passagier niet de meest voor de hand liggende titels naar het mij leek, geweldig! Om 14:50 uur plaatselijke tijd landde ik in Minneapolis, waarna ik Dawn en John voor het eerst ontmoette. Toen we elkaar enkele dagen eerder hadden gezien en gesproken via Skype had ik er al een heel goed gevoel bij, wat direct werd bevestigd bij onze eerste ontmoeting: wat een ontzettend lieve, warme, hartelijke mensen! We vertrokken naar hun huurhuis in de wijk East-Harriet om mijn spullen weg te brengen, waarna we de rest van middag doorbrachten op een steiger aan het prachtige Lake Harriet. Terwijl we met onze benen in het verfrissende water van het meer bungelden zwom er plots een schildpad voorbij. Eenmaal thuis gekomen ben ik even gaan zitten op de bank die Dawn en John 'the narcoleptic couch' noemen. Ik heb het geweten. Jetlag. Ergens halverwege de nacht werd ik er wakker, waarna ik toch maar naar mijn logeerbed ben geslopen voor het vervolg van de nacht.

Dinsdag 10 juli

Vanmorgen brachten we een bezoek aan Saint-Paul. Saint Paul vormt samen met Minneapolis de tweelingstad Minneapolis-St. Paul. De steden liggen naast elkaar en lopen zelfs in elkaar over.  Ondanks het feit dat Saint Paul slechts 300.000 inwoners telt tegenover de 422.000 inwoners van Minneapolis, is Saint Paul de hoofdstad van de staat Minnesota. In Saint Paul wachtte ons een rondleiding bij Minnesota Public Radio, oftewel MPR. De in 1967 opgerichte publieke staatsomroep huist in een enorm pand in downtown Saint Paul en behelst 46 radiozenders met een totaal bereik van circa 18 miljoen luisteraars per week. De rondleiding bracht ons dan ook langs talloze redactievloeren, archieven, radiostudio’s, een opnamestudio en zelfs een grote theaterzaal. Tijdens onze rondleiding ontmoetten Michael Barone. Dawn heeft ooit als grafisch vormgever voor MPR’s popzender The Current gewerkt en zij vertelde mij dat iedereen altijd een beetje bang was voor Michael, aangezien hij zo’n vakidioot was dat hij vaak weinig op had met ‘small talk’. Michael presenteert het programma Pipe dreams, gespecialiseerd in klassieke orgelmuziek. Toen hij hoorde dat ik uit Nederland kwam lichtten zijn ogen op en ontstond er tegen alle verwachtingen in een ontzettend leuk gesprek. Michael was namelijk jaren eerder een aantal keer in Nederland geweest om beroemde pijporgels te bezoeken in diverse kerken. Haarlem, Alkmaar, Amsterdam; hij was er allemaal geweest. Eigenlijk was Michael een oude hippie met een enorme passie voor klassieke muziek. Hij gaf mij drie cd’s uit zijn Pipe Dreams reeks cadeau en wij rondden onze rondleiding af.

Na een typisch Amerikaans ontbijt met pancakes en Maple Syrup bezochten we de Mississippi. Nooit geweten dat de rivier ook door Saint Paul stroomde. M’n gedachten dwaalden af naar de Mississippi Delta. Ik dacht aan oude blues helden en ik dacht aan Jeff Buckley, die in de rivier zijn noodlot trof.

We vervolgden ons bezoek aan de stad met een kijkje bij het Science Museum of Minnesota, alwaar in de Omniversum-bioscoop de documentaire Dream Big: Engineering Our World was te zien. Een indrukwekkende film over bouwkundige wonderen van over de hele wereld – van de Chinese muur en ’s werelds hoogste wolkenkrabbers tot aan onderwaterrobots en solarwagens.

Er is ook een Omniversum in Den Haag, maar deze heb ik helaas nog nooit bezocht. Ik ben ook nog nooit bij de Zaanse Schans geweest. Zo gaat dat soms wanneer je in de nabijheid woont van iets unieks; je neemt het voor lief.

Na een korte ‘nap’ vertrokken we rond etenstijd naar Minneapolis voor mijn eerste concert op Amerikaanse bodem, in The Aster Café. Zo gewichtig als ik het nu omschrijf beleefde ik het overigens helemaal niet hoor. Maar ik keek er wel ontzettend naar uit.

The Aster Café deed me enigszins denken aan de Waag in Haarlem, een plek waar muziekliefhebbers onder het genot van speciaalbieren en kwaliteitswijnen samenkomen om zittend naar concerten van singer/songwriters te luisteren.

Om niet in de problemen te komen met de autoriteiten was ik slechts aangekondigd als ‘mystery guest’. Hoofdact was Todd Eckart, zowel in verschijning als in klank een soort kruising van Roy Orbison en Chris Isaak. Na een korte soundcheck eenmaal begonnen aan mijn show kwam ik er na één nummer achter dat ik geen seconde had nagedacht over het feit dat ik tussen de nummers door natuurlijk in het Engels mijn verhalen zou moeten vertellen. Op zich niet zo’n probleem, maar wel ietwat onwennig. Ik kan enkele accenten imiteren, van ‘posh English’ tot ‘scouse’ of 'mancunian', maar dat vind ik altijd een beetje nep om als Nederlander te doen. Schotten, Ieren, Australiërs; ze spreken allen een vorm van Engels met een zeer eigen accent. Dus waarom zou ik niet gewoon als een Nederlander mogen klinken? Vinden ze vaak alleen maar sympathiek. Tegelijkertijd stoor ik me altijd aan steenkolenengels. Wat is het leven soms toch moeilijk. Een bekend grapje over de Engelse uitspraak van toenmalig premier Wim Kok dat mijn leraar Engels mij ooit vertelde ging ongeveer als volgt: Kok: ‘Do you fok horses, Mr. Clinton?’ Clinton: ‘Pardon?’ Kok: ‘Yes, paarden!’

Het was een fijn optreden en na afloop dronken John en ik beiden een heerlijke whiskey old fashioned, John's specialiteit. Fijn om whiskey te mogen schrijven, het is één van de zeldzame gevallen waarin ik de Amerikaanse spelwijze rijker vind dan de Engelse.

Woensdag 11 juli

Vanmorgen met Dawn en John een Skype interview gegeven voor de website van De Telegraaf. Vervolgens de auto gepakt om van Minneapolis naar Chicago te rijden. Nadat ik Dawn tijdens onze eerste mailwisselingen had verteld over mijn Amerikaanse familie in Illinois had ze enthousiast geantwoord met de woorden: ‘I LOVE it that you have family in the Chicago area! John and I will take time off of work, and we'll road trip there together! It's less than 7 hours away from us!’. Een mooier voorbeeld van een cultuurverschil tussen Amerikanen en Europeanen kan ik zo makkelijk niet bedenken. Met zeven uur rijden zit je een uur onder Parijs. Dat is voor ons Europeanen toch wel een reis om even goed over na te denken alvorens deze te maken. Maar naar Amerikaanse maatstaven is het een haast onmogelijk grote toevalligheid, dat je zo vlakbij familie hebt wonen.

Ik vond het een geweldig voorstel en keek dan ook enorm uit naar de roadtrip. John besloot de avond van tevoren niet mee te gaan omdat hij helaas te veel werk had liggen om er twee dagen tussenuit te kunnen knijpen. Rijdend door Minnesota viel het me op hoe Europees, haast Nederlands het landschap in deze staat er eigenlijk uitziet.

Ik herinner me nog het verhaal dat 3voor12 ooit publiceerde over Bob Dylan, die bij bezoekjes aan Nederland volgens de legende steevast afreisde naar Groningen omdat de omgeving hem zo deed denken aan Duluth, Minnesota waar hij opgroeide.

Ik dacht na over de migranten die de oversteek naar de Nieuwe Wereld besloten te maken in de hoop op een beter leven en over hoe vele Europeanen besloten moeten hebben om in deze omgeving te gaan wonen, omdat het ze aan thuis deed denken. ’s Avonds zou ik erover lezen en bleek inderdaad dat Minnesota sinds de 19e eeuw vooral werd bevolkt door grote groepen Duitsers, Noren, Zweden en Nederlanders.

Terwijl we vanuit de auto Chicago in de verte zagen opdoemen spookte Sufjan Stevens door mijn hoofd met zijn briljante liedje Chicago van zijn meesterwerk Illinoise.

Omdat het vanaf de rand van de stad nog een uur zou duren om naar ons hotel downtown te rijden besloten we onderweg te stoppen om te eten bij een restaurant met de veelbelovende naam Thai Lagoon. Het eten was zeer smaakvol, maar haalde het toch niet bij persoonlijke favorieten als Bird in Amsterdam of Erawan in Haarlem.

Later  die avond kwamen we aan in The Whitehall Hotel, door Dawn omschreven als een ‘fancy pants hotel, with valet parking’. Er was geen woord van gelogen. Een waanzinnig mooi hotel op een geweldige locatie.

Donderdag 12 juli

Hoewel de bedden van het Whitehall Hotel heerlijk lagen, heb ik toch slecht geslapen. Sinds het verschijnen van het artikel over mijn reis in de Telegraaf werd ik gedurende de hele nacht regelmatig geappt en gebeld door verschillende redacties. Hartstikke leuk natuurlijk en bijzonder onverwacht ook, maar ook wel lastig door het flinke tijdsverschil van zeven uur. Het goede ontbijt in de hotellobby deed gelukkig wonderen en ik merkte daarnaast dat alle opwinding over de reis me ook wel een dosis energie gaf.

Door het geplande bezoek aan Champaign later die dag, hadden we helaas niet de tijd om Chicago uitgebreid te bekijken. Er waren wel musea die ik had willen zien en ook 2120 S. Michigan Avenue, de bekendste locatie van de Chess studio’s en tevens de titel van een Rolling Stones nummer, stond op m’n verlanglijstje.

Wat we nog wel hebben kunnen doen was het maken van een prachtige wandeling door de Magnificent Mile wijk en een bezoek aan Ohio Street Beach aan Lake Michigan. Vanaf deze locatie heb je een prachtig uitzicht op de stad. Uiteraard hebben we ook even een kijkje genomen bij Marina City, een appartementencomplex aan de oever van de Chicago River. Het complex bestaat uit twee torens van elk 179 meter hoog en de onderste 19 verdiepingen zijn parkeerplaatsen.

De torens van Marina City kende ik van de hoesfoto van Wilco’s Yankee Hotel Foxtrot. Een iconische plaat en dito staaltje architectuur.

Begin van de middag stapten we in de auto voor de reis naar Champaign-Urbana. Champaign is een universiteitsstad in de Amerikaanse staat Illinois. Mijn oudoom en oudtante Tom en Louisette Zuidema hebben er een groot deel van hun leven doorgebracht en mijn achternichtjes Paquita en Annegien en achterneef Lucho zijn er allen geboren. Oom Tom, zoals we hem altijd noemden, was in 1927 geboren in Haarlem als oudere broer van mijn opa Bert. Na zijn studie Antropologie studeerde hij Spaans in Madrid en verhuisde in 1957 naar Peru. In 1964 publiceerde hij zijn eerste boek, genaamd The Ceque System of Cuzco en ging hij lesgeven in San Cristóbal aan de universiteit van Huamanga. Na drie jaar verhuisde het gezin naar de Verenigde Staten en begon hij als hoogleraar Anthropology and Latin American and Caribbean Studies aan de Universiteit van Illinois in Urbana-Champaign. Door de jaren heen reisde het gezin geregeld naar Nederland voor familiebezoek en we zagen elkaar dan ook zeer regelmatig. Ik vind het jammer dat ik Tom en Louisette nooit in Champaign heb kunnen bezoeken terwijl ze nog leefden, maar heb altijd alsnog graag eens willen zien waar ze het grootste gedeelte van hun levens hebben doorgebracht.

Direct was ik gecharmeerd van het universiteitsstadje; de mooie huizen en gebouwen, de haast Europese sfeer en het vele groen. Op enkele honderden meters van de universiteitscampus arriveerden we halverwege de middag bij het voormalige huis van de familie Zuidema. Ik stapte uit de auto om de straat en het huis eens goed in me op te nemen. Wat bijzonder om hier te zijn! Hier was het dus, waar ze hun leven hebben doorgebracht. Wat een moedige stap moet het geweest zijn om al het bekende achter hun te laten voor dit grote avontuur. Maar wat moet het hier ook fijn geweest zijn. Terwijl we een aantal foto’s maakten van het huis kwam de overbuurvrouw naar buiten. Ze had waarschijnlijk direct haar vermoedens, het zal vast niet elke dag gebeuren dat toeristen foto’s nemen van dit willekeurig huis in deze willekeurige straat. Ze bleek mijn oudoom en oudtante goed gekend te hebben, bevriend met ze te zijn geweest. Vooral met mijn oudtante, Tom was altijd vooral in de weer met zijn boeken. Vele mooie verhalen volgden en ze wist mij echt een inkijkje te geven in het dagelijks leven van de laatste jaren van Louisette en Tom. Over hoe Tom dagelijks naar café Strawberry Fields liep voor een kopje koffie en The New York Times en hoe hij ook wandelend naar de campus ging. Ze nam ons mee naar het huis van mijn achternichtje Annegien, een paar straten verderop. Voor mijn reis hadden we contact gehad, maar helaas zat ze deze week in Maine.

Toen we afscheid namen gaf ze mij één van haar dichtbundels cadeau met daarin een prachtige eulogie, opgedragen aan Louisette. Later stuurde Gale me nog een heel lief e-mail bericht:

‘I couldn't remember your last name but I thought the encounter was lovely and at dinner that night I was going to tell my daughter (who is 20) about it.  So I said, ‘So I met this guy named Yorick...’ and before I could get any further her eyes got really wide and she said "Yorick the Musician???? and then she immediately calmed herself and kind of laughed at herself and said, “no he lives in Holland.’  And I said yeah I think that’s him – he's related to Tom and Louisette – and she ran and got her phone and said....This guy?  I said, I think so.  Turns out a friend of hers at college (in Kentucky) is a big fan and introduces everyone to his music.  Anyway I thought that was a good coda to the day.’

Wat een bizar toeval! Alsof het al niet gek genoeg was dat Dawn mijn muziek had leren kennen in Minneapolis.

Na een bezoek aan café Strawberry Fields vervolgden we onze reis naar de campus. Helaas was de universiteit door de summer break nagenoeg verlaten. Bij de afdeling Antropologie in de gang hing een grote wereldkaart met daarop geplaatst gekleurde punaises met vlaggetjes met namen. Op het vlaggetje bij de in Cuzco, Peru geplaatste punaise stond ‘Zuidema’. Ontroerend.

Vrijdag 13 juli

Het grootste gedeelte van vandaag stond in het teken van de terugreis naar Minneapolis, vanaf ons motel in Rockford een slordige 540 kilometer. ’s Avonds bezochten we ‘REBEL REBEL: ROCK FOR PUSSY XIV — A TRIBUTE TO DAVID BOWIE’ in de legendarische concertzaal First Avenue, voorheen bekend als The Depot, Uncle Sam’s en Sam’s. In de nachtclub begon het succes van menig artiest uit de Twin Cities (zoals bijvoorbeeld Prince, The Revolution, The Replacements, Hüsker Dü, Soul Asylum en The Jayhawks) en daarnaast stond bijna iedere bekende Amerikaanse popartiest die sinds de jaren zeventig opkwam er weleens op de planken. Ik was dan ook erg benieuwd naar dit stukje pophistorie.

Van tevoren was ik een beetje huiverig geweest voor het bezoeken van deze avond, aangezien ik nooit zo gecharmeerd ben geweest van tribute bands. Ironisch misschien, daar ik zelf ook wel eens op de planken sta met eerbetonen aan The Beach Boys, The Summer of Love, Elvis, Frank Sinatra’s Watertown etc. 

Maar ik vind de meeste tributes simpelweg niet smaakvol en goed uitgevoerd. Als er dan ook nog eens opplaksnorren, pruiken en replica’s van iconische outfits in het spel zijn weet je meestal wel hoe het laat is. Plat spektakel en goedkoop entertainment winnen het nogal eens van goede sounds en een smaakvolle songselectie. ‘Het laaghangende fruit plukken’, noemde Anne Soldaat dat eens zo mooi in het persbericht van onze muziekvoorstelling Unsung Heroes

Maar de Bowie tribute night was ontzettend goed. De creme de la creme van de alternatieve popscene van Minneapolis stond op de planken. Een eerbetoon van liefhebbers voor liefhebbers. Smaakvol. Dawn en John hadden gelijk, deze jaarlijks terugkerende avond was zeer de moeite waard en First Avenue was een fantastische venue.

EBRD to sell Istanbul bourse stake after jailed banker named CEO – report

Components

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development will sell its 10-percent stake in the Istanbul stock exchange after Turkey named a banker convicted of breaking U.S. sanctions on Iran as its chief executive, Reuters reported.

The EBRD told the Turkish authorities that it would sell the shares as soon as possible, Reuters said on Wednesday, citing two unidentified people familiar with the plans.

Mehmet Hakan Atilla was released from U.S. custody earlier this year after being convicted by a New York court in January last year of helping to funnel billions of dollars of Iranian cash through the U.S. financial system while working as deputy CEO of Turkey’s state-run Halkbank.

Officials at the EBRD were not immediately available to comment, Reuters said.

The appointment of Atilla was the latest concern that the EBRD had over the running of the bourse, convincing it to sell its shares, the sources said. The appointment comes at a time when foreign investment in Turkey is in decline, hampering the government’s efforts to stimulate economic growth following a currency crisis and recession last year.

Turkish Treasury and Finance Minister Berat Albayrak, the son-in-law of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, named Atilla CEO last week. Atilla returned to Turkey in July.

The EBRD said last week it had the right to end the investment after Albayrak announced Atilla’s hiring.

New York prosecutors charged Halkbank two weeks ago with taking part in the sanctions-busting scheme. Erdoğan has said the accusations against Atilla and Halkbank were fabrications aimed at damaging his government and the country.

Erdoğan likely to push Trump to reverse ‘double whammy’

Erdoğan likely to push Trump to reverse ‘double whammy’

Components

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has repeatedly shown the ability to influence and manipulate U.S. President Donald Trump, though two resolutions passed by the U.S. House on Tuesday highlight the Turkish leader’s lesser influence among U.S. lawmakers. 

After a December 2018 phone call between the two presidents, Trump announced that U.S. troops would withdraw from Syria. The move was soon reversed, but it shocked Washington’s foreign policy establishment and led to the resignations of two key U.S. officials, Defense Secretary James Mattis and counter-Islamic State (ISIS) envoy Brett McGurk. 

After the two met during the June G-20 summit in Japan, Trump told reporters that he appreciated Turkey’s position on its purchase of Russian S-400 air defence missiles. In the months since he has refrained from applying the Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act against Turkey, which its deal with Russia should have triggered. 

Last month, following another phone talk with Erdoğan, Trump again announced U.S. troops would be leaving Syria, allowing Turkey to go forward with its long-planned offensive against the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) and its affiliate People’s Protection Units (YPG). Turkey views the YPG as an extension of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, which has led an insurgency in Turkey since 1984 and is labelled a terrorist group by the United States and European Union, as well as Turkey. 

“Erdoğan has learned to manipulate Trump and Erdoğan has been able to influence Donald Trump’s personal talking points,” said Aaron Stein, director of the Middle East programme at the Foreign Policy Research Institute. 

Stein said Turkish officials identified Trump as their preferred U.S. presidential candidate back in October 2016. “I thought Donald Trump would be an Islamophobe that would work against Turkish interests,” he said. 

“But the Turks rightly concluded that Trump was corruptible and not very smart, and therefore he was manipulable - he could be a transactional partner that would work toward Turkey’s interests,” Stein added. “It took three years, but they ultimately got it.”

The two leaders are set to meet in Washington on Nov. 13, and observers expect Erdoğan to seek to reverse or neutralise two House resolutions passed this week, which the New York Times described as a rebuke to Trump and one analyst described as a “double whammy” against Turkey.  

The first resolution marks an official recognition of the Armenian Genocide. The House move, which came on the anniversary of the birth of the Republic of Turkey, is not unprecedented. In 1975 and in 1984, the House also adopted resolutions acknowledging the Armenian Genocide. And in April 1981, President Ronald Reagan issued a Presidential Proclamation on the matter. 

The second House resolution, which like the first must be approved by the Senate to become binding, calls for sanctioning Erdoğan and other Turkish officials involved in the Syria offensive, as well as Turkish banks linked to the defence sector, and penalising Turkey for its purchase of Russian S-400 missiles.

Russian officials told Turkey on Tuesday that Syrian and Russian forces had successfully cleared the YPG from a strip of land along Turkey’s border, as per last week’s agreement between Erdoğan and Russian President Vladimir Putin, and that joint Russian-Turkish patrols could begin.

Stein said he expected Russia would soon integrate the YPG into the forces of Syrian President Bashar Assad, which would raise security issues for Turkey and give Assad and Putin some leverage over Erdoğan. 

Turkey’s offensive in northeast Syria has thus far displaced some 180,000 people, and many, including former U.S. Ambassador Samantha Power, have described Turkish actions there as ethnic cleansing, in part because Erdoğan has repeatedly expressed his desire to settle mostly Syrian Arab refugees in the area, much of which has had a Kurdish majority in recent decades. 

“Erdoğan has said he wants to move 2 million people into these areas. I think that would be tantamount to ethnic re-engineering,” said Stein.

Stein does not foresee Ankara being able to implement that plan, nor does he see a coherent Turkish approach in northeast Syria, but rather the significant influence of Russia. Reports this week have said Turkey is also considering buying Russian Su-35 fighter jets. Also this week, Pentagon officials said Turkey’s S-400s are expected to be operational by the end of the year. 

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has cautioned U.S. officials to think carefully before sanctioning Turkey and pushing Ankara further toward Russia. In the Washington Post last week, Ilhan Omar, a member of the House of Representatives, also argued against sanctioning Turkey, saying that while Turkey’s Syria offensive had been a disaster, sanctions tend to be incoherent and counter-productive. 

“I don’t understand the point of collapsing Turkey’s economy or even threatening to do it for an invasion of Syria,” said Stein, though he did understand punishing Turkey for its S-400 purchase. 

“Turkey has met the threshold for CAATSA sanctions,” said Stein, pointing out that Ankara even aired live video of the arrival of the S-400s, “rubbing the nose of the Americans in the faeces of this deal”.

There have been reports that Trump is negotiating with Turkish officials behind the scenes in an effort to secure the purchase of U.S.-made Patriot missiles to replace the S-400s. Still, most U.S. officials would prefer not to sanction Turkey. 

“People don’t want to alienate a NATO ally,” said Stein, who said it was possible Turkey would buy Patriots at next month’s summit. 

“But a negotiation entails a give and take on both sides, and Turkey never gives, it only takes,” said Stein, who thinks Turkish officials do not realise how few defenders they have left in the White House. 

“Erdoğan played his cards right,” Stein added. “He got another face-to-face meeting with Trump where he can present his case, and when he gets a meeting with Trump, Trump usually capitulates to his point of view.”

Turkish Islamic business group aims to triple U.S. membership

Components

Turkey’s biggest business group Islamic-leaning businessmen aims to more than triple its membership in the United States in one year, Dünya newspaper reported.

The Independent Industrialists’ and Businessmen’s Association (MÜSİAD), which has grown rapidly in Turkey since President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s ruling party won power in 2002, is seeking to increase its membership in the United States to 250 firms from 80, Dünya said citing Ayhan Özmekik, the group’s new head of U.S. operations.

MÜSİAD will expand its network of offices in the United States and locate them closer to Turks living in the country to help boost its popularity, said Özmekik, who runs the Park Café in west New York. For example, it will open an office in Paterson in New Jersey, where many Turks live, he said.

Turkey is seeking to expand annual bilateral trade with the United States to $100 billion from around $20 billion under targets outlined this year by Erdoğan and U.S. President Donald Trump. Relations between the two countries have suffered from bilateral tensions over Syria, Turkey’s detention of a U.S. pastor last year and the U.S. residence of Islamic preacher Fethullah Gülen, who Turkey blames for orchestrating a failed military coup in 2016.

MÜSİAD aims to open libraries at its offices in the United States, to help Turkish citizens residing in the country and to hold round table meetings to foster relations, Özmekik said, according to Dünya.

Pierre Yovanovitch exhibit explores "budding romance" between imaginary characters

Love by Pierre Yovanovitch at R &C

Bear-shaped armchairs and cushions embroidered with red lips are among French designer Pierre Yovanovitch's latest collection of furnishings, which are on display at New York gallery R & Company.

Yovanovitch has transformed the R & Company gallery space into several domestic scenes to display the collection titled Love. He has decorate the interior to bring life to the imaginary character Miss Oops, who regularly appears in his designs.

Love by Pierre Yovanovitch at R &CPierre Yovanovitch has transformed the R & Company gallery into a series of domestic scenes for his fictionalised character Miss Oops

"The exhibition will lead guests through an unfolding narrative centred around an imaginary recurring character in the designer's work called Miss Oops," R & Company said.

"Visitors encounter different domestic scenes symbolising the emotional evolution of the Miss Oops' budding romance: starting in the parlour, leading to the dining room, then the boudoir, and ending in the bedroom."

Love by Pierre Yovanovitch at R &CPentagon-shaped Match table and a set of Madame and Monsieur Oops chairs form the exhibit's dining room

Miss Oops first appeared in Yovanovitch's work at the Design Parade Toulon festival in France in 2018, marking the beginning of the designer's exploration with "scenography".

"To bring my work out of the context of a private home and into a scenography of my creation is so special, as it not only allows me to dabble in my passion for set design and narrative and showcase my designs to the greater public, which is something I rarely have the privilege to do," Yovanovitch said.

Yovanovitch worked with woodworkers, ceramists, ironworkers, glass makers and upholsterers to create the chairs, sofa, tables, cushions, rug and bed frame that make up the Love series.

Alongside the 20 new items are several contemporary works – like paintings and sculptures – that Yovanovitch selected from New York galleries Perrotin New York, Lehmann Maupin New York, Salon 94, Almine Rech New York and Kamel Mennour.

Additional whimsical graphic elements, deep-coloured walls and soft lighting are paired with the pieces to further explore the exhibition's theme of love.

Love by Pierre Yovanovitch at R &CTo continue the collection's narrative, Yovanovitch adorned the Oops chairs with faced

"Yovanovitch's interiors have an amazing warmth, beauty and subtlety which makes the spaces dynamic. By adding humour to serious design, he creates a new aesthetic," R & Company co-founder Zesty Meyers added.

Two ear-like nubs top the Daydream Mama and Papa Bear armchairs placed in the space's parlour room, which features dark blue walls and a neon sign. The cosy chairs are also decorated with embroidered hands and arms that were woven onto the custom upholstered pieces to give the allusion that it is being hugged.

Love by Pierre Yovanovitch at R &CSeveral cushions and textiles featuring lips and other lust-influenced symbols were created for the collection

Placed within the exhibition's dining room is the large pentagonal Match table with dark blue patinated steel legs. Surrounding the table are Yovanovitch's Madame and Monsieur Oops chairs, defined by their almost identical shapes. The Madame design features a heart-shaped upholstered back, while the cushioning on its masculine counterpart inverts that design.

Other pieces in the collection include Take Off, a rounded bed frame made from oak, Frolocking rug, which weaves together wool, mohair and silk and several cushions, and bedspreads detailed with lips and other lust-influenced symbols.

Love by Pierre Yovanovitch at R &CThe final room in the gallery space is the bedroom where Yovanovitch designed a rounded bed frame and embroidered bed spread

The Love series and accompanying exhibition will be on display at the R & Company White Street gallery 6 November 2019 to 4 January 2020.

R & Company is a New York based design exhibition space founded by Zesty Meyers and Evan Snyderman. Other designers that have displayed work in the gallery include Sebastian Errazuriz who created a chandelier using 100 stuffed birds and Bae Se Hwa with his series of curvaceous dark wood benches and lounge chairs.

Yovanovitch founded his Paris studio in 2001. His previous projects include other fuzzy bear-shaped armchairs, a boldly painted gift shop in Paris, and a London restaurant with salmon pink walls and a cooking-themed mural.

Queen Latifah N Shaggy In Little Mermaid Live!!!

 Cache   

Queen Latifah N Shaggy In  Little Mermaid Live. On last night both Queen Latifah and Shaggy starred in the television live production of the animated movie “The Little Mermaid.” Legendary rapper Shaggy’s performance was great, as well. The TV production of Little Mermaid was a success According to some media reports Queen Latifah and Shaggy’s performance was very impressive. In fact, Shaggy’s performance of “Under The Sea” which is from the animated character Sebastian was riveting. Also, Queen Latifah’s character Ursula (The Sea Witch) was one of her best performances ever, as reported by The New York Times. The other characters (Auli’i Cravalho as Ariel, Graham Phillips as Prince Eric and John Stamos as Chef were great. Overall, the television live version of the Little Mermaid did a lot better than expected. Of course, there were some who think that mixing the live performances with animated parts of the film were a bit kiddish. However, so many love the story of the Little Mermaid so it was worth watching. On another note, this is not the first time Queen Latifah has been one of the stars in a musical productions. Queen Latifah was in the movie “Chicago”, which gained mainstream success for the rapper. Queen Latifah has continued to evolve as one of the best entertainers in the industry. So I am not surprised that Queen Latifah’s performance in the Little Mermaid Live was well received. Having said that, people were very impressed with rapper Shaggy’s live performance in the Little Mermaid. It has been a long time since Shaggy has been in the public eye. It sounds like most people really enjoyed the live performance of the Little Mermaid which aired on Disney’s owned channel ABC. For more Hip Hop TV Show News check us out at Hip Hop News Uncensored.

So, heute wurde Silencia also ein Teenager, passend dazu hat sie meiner Meinung in den letzten Wochen auch noch einen entsprechend großen Sprung getan und ja, Madame wird groß. Nach ihrem Wochenendtrip nach Bonn ging's gestern dann noch mit Freundinnen nach Stuttgart zum Shoppen (also zwei T-Shirts kaufen ;-), eins mit der Rolling Stones Zunge und dem Tour Jahr 1975 ... ) und heute dann eben Geburtstagsfeier im Kreise der Familie, anschließend dann zu Freundinnen, um dort dann gemeinsam Halloween zu feiern. Geburtstagsparty wurde erst mal verschoben, weil so viele Herbstferien-technisch nicht kommen können.

Das Kind wurde dieses Mal reichlich beschenkt, VSCO-Girl-technisch (ich finde das ja so witzig, weil ich die - warum auch immer - namensgebenden Foto-Filter-App schon benutzt habe, als diese Kinder wirklich noch sehr kleine Kinder waren, aber gut, so bin ich wenigstens auch in den Augen von Teenagern noch so ein bisschen cool ;-)


(gab's nur, weil wir ja Beziehungen in die Outdoor-Branche haben
ansonsten bei den Preisen: Ich glaube es hackt!)



Tzja, und bei diesem Wunsch wurde das Mutter(und auch das Vater)herz schwach ...
(ähnlich wie bei anderen Familienmitgliedern, die von mir unbedingt ein Antifa-T-Shirt im Stile von Friends haben wollten, okay, etwas kostengünstiger ...)
miomarito und ich erzählten uns also mehrer Abende lang ach-damals-meine-Docs-Geschichten und fanden es dann irgendwie dann doch okay, ihr den (ja ebenfalls sauteuren) Wunsch zu erfüllen.
Ich habe aber auch das Recht, mir die Docs mal auszuleihen ... und wir hoffen, dass sie tatsächlich keine größeren Füße mehr bekommt ...


Und neben klassischer Jugend-Krimi-Literatur gab's dann auch noch das.
Ich hatte vorher etwas reinlesen und glaube, ich kann es auf jeden Fall auch weiter empfehlen,
vielleicht auch noch irgendwann mal etwas ausführlicher dazu. 


Und weil ich eh gerade darauf warte, dass miomarito und Tertia aus dem Zirkus in Böblingen (!!) wieder kommen (ilfiglio ist nach Hagen (!) unterwegs bzw. inzwischen wohl dort, silencia eben bei ihren Freundinnen), gibt es jetzt noch schnell ein paar Wort zu Modern Love (bei Amazon prime).

Hervorragender Kitsch, wirklich. Schöne Geschichten, gute Schauspieler, tolle "Locations". Verschiedene Erzählungen rund um die Liebe, die wohl alle einen wahren Hintergrund haben und in der New York Times in einer gleichnamigen Kolumne veröffentlicht wurden. Manche haben mir besser gefallen (When the Doorman Is Your Main Man), andere weniger (Rallying to Keep the Game Alive), andere mich sehr irritiert: Moriarty (Andrew Scott) als werdender schwuler Vater ;-).
So, kritisch oder wirklich überraschend ist dabei aber wirklich gar nichts (es sei denn man hat schon Probleme mit unehelichen Kindern oder zwei Männern, die ein Kind adoptieren), es ist reines Wohlfühl-Fernsehen. Aber wenn das Wetter so mies ist und man außerdem New York City mag (ganz viele tolle Aufnahmen), dann ist das genau das richtige für einen gemütlichen Abend auf dem Sofa. Happy End und Tränchen im Auge garantiert. Und es soll wohl auch eine zweite Staffel geben.

Als nächstes dann aber wieder etwas weniger Zuckerguss.

'A Marvelous Life' Holds Stan Lee High As The Man Who Made Superheroes Matter

 Cache   

In 2018, Marvel Studios released Black Panther. The film grossed 1.3 billion dollars and was nominated for 7 Oscars including Best Picture (a first time for a superhero film).

Beyond the money and awards, the release of Black Panther was a global event. The story of a super-powered African king, leader of the most technologically advanced nation on Earth, allowed the film to address racism and the history of colonial oppression in entirely new and unexpected ways. If anyone was still raising questions about comics mattering for culture, Black Panther meant the definitive end of the argument. Marvel comics and their characters were culture.

So how did we get here? How did superhero comics, the supposed realm of nerdy teenagers, end up conquering the world?

The answer, in many ways, comes down to a single name — Stan Lee. Across a lifetime of creativity, collaboration and endless hustle, Stan Lee saw possibilities no else could imagine and made them real. And if you want to understand how Lee and Marvel did it, Danny Fingeroth's new book A Marvelous Life is the place to start. As a lifelong fan of Spider-Man, The X-Men, Star-Lord and the rest, it was delightful introduction to a guy I'd never met but felt I'd known my whole life.

Fingeroth, who did his own award-winning time at Marvel, begins by laying out the contours of Stan Lee's early life as the son of a Jewish New York immigrant family (Lee was born in 1922 as Stanley Martin Lieber). Through the 1950s, Lee managed to build a solid if unimpressive career working in comics. But then in the late 1950s, the comics industry crashed as TV gave teenage boys a different venue for their interests. By 1960, Lee felt stymied and trapped. He was planning on quitting comics once and for all to do something "important." It was that frustration that led Stan Lee to what Fingeroth calls "a midlife crisis heard 'round the world."

Seeing that other publishers were having some success reviving superhero teams, Lee's boss tasked him with coming up with a new comic. Lee took the assignment, but he didn't just want to create just another group of costumed do-gooders. Instead, he set out to imagine a different vision what it meant to be a superhero.

In this and the work that followed, Lee asked himself what would happen if an ordinary person got superpowers. Would it make their lives better or would it make them harder? What Lee was picturing were superheroes who weren't gods from another world or perfect, infallible examples of human righteousness. Instead, he wanted stories of flawed men and women, full of neurosis and anguish, who suddenly found they could fly or stretch or punch their way through brick walls. What would happen then?

What happened was The Fantastic Four. And then The Hulk. And then Thor and Spiderman and Doctor Strange and Iron Man and The X-men. Over the next few years, Lee along with the equally legendary Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko, managed to create a large fraction of what we now call the Marvel Universe. Many of the characters had huge, real-life challenges like Tony Stark (aka Iron Man) and his drinking problem. That meant these characters lived in a recognizable world. "I wanted to make it as realistic as possible" says Lee in an interview quoted in the book. "Instead of [superheroes] living in Gotham City or Metropolis, I felt I will have them live in New York City." Just as important, these new Marvel characters lived in the same world where they crossed paths, formed alliances (or broke them), had romances (and broke those too), all of which formed one, giant, seamless story.

It wasn't just the stories that were new. Lee saw something few others could recognize — a nascent adult audience for superhero comics. Rather than just a backwater of teenage fantasy, Lee understood that with the right stories, superhero comics could gain relevance in the rapidly emerging world of ever-present mass media. Then Lee went further. He not only saw the change coming, he understood how to become its personification.

Most folks only know Stan Lee through his charming and quirky cameos in modern Marvel films. But if you were serious about comics back in the day (for me "the day" was the mid-1970s when I was 11 years old), Stan Lee was a constant presence. One of Lee's great innovations in Marvel comics was to develop a relationship with his readers through the "Bullpen Bulletins." These were a kind of editor's news and information page where Lee drew back the curtain to let you see what was happening at Marvel's offices. And as Lee described it, something amazing was always happening including the occasional visit from a rock star or famous movie director who'd popped by to express their Marvel admiration.

That was Lee's genius. "Little by little [he] was making himself and Marvel into celebrities" writes Fingeroth. By becoming a regular presence within Marvel's pages Lee was "mythologizing what he and his peers did for a living, making himself and them as important as the characters whose stories they told." But Lee was making us, his readers part of that story too. He was convincing us that we, too, were part of something very important just by buying those slim volumes of The Avengers, Silver Surfer or Nick Fury and His Howling Commandos.

A Marvelous Life gives us strong insights into the forces that drove Lee and Marvel to success. But Stan Lee was also a complex man who could be both beloved and reviled. In particular, Lee's conflicts with collaborators, who felt he had stolen credit for their work, is also an important part of his story. This was particularly true for Jack Kirby. Fingeroth spends some time in the book unpacking Lee's long running dispute with Kirby and others. He also mentions abuse allegations previously noted by media. These sections were not particularly compelling to me, but they are an important part of Lee's legacy and Fingeroth handles them with grace.

One small criticism of the book is that it tells us very little of Lee's response to the founding and runaway success of Marvel Studios (beginning with Iron Man in 2008). That seems a strange omission given how much of Lee's later story is him trying to get Hollywood to pick up Marvel properties.

Taken as a whole though, A Marvelous Life is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand how Stan Lee set Marvel on the path to world domination (in a good way).

'We're All Struggling': Writer Saeed Jones Reflects On Identity And Acceptance

 Cache   

As a black gay kid growing up in Texas in the 1990s, poet Saeed Jones remembers getting negative messages about his identity from every aspect of his life. It was around the time of Matthew Shepard's murder in Wyoming, and Jones felt alone and unsafe.

"I was seeing these cautionary tales connected to identity," he says. "It was so clear that it was perilous to be a black gay boy in America."

And yet he couldn't be any other way: "Being gay isn't a choice, just like being black isn't a choice," Jones says. "I don't stop. I do not give up. I do not take America's 'no' to my identity for an answer."

In his new coming-of-age memoir, How We Fight for Our Lives, Jones reflects on his struggle to embrace his identity. The "we" in the title is intentional; he hopes the book will spark a conversation among a cross section of readers.

"We're all struggling," he says. "I want you to experience what's going on in my book and think about it in relation to your own life, whether that's because you're like, 'Oh this is totally different!' Or because you're like, 'Hmm. This is really familiar.' I think that's a useful way of thinking about memoir."


Interview Highlights

On his first sexual encounter with a man, hooking up in a library bathroom and trying to kiss and being refused

He was like, "Oh, absolutely not." And so I felt embarrassed and I think the only thing more painful than not getting what you want is almost getting it and then being shamed right at the last minute. ...

I was deeply ashamed. I thought I had messed up. But I think really he admitted he couldn't go there. He was working through some things, and so he was ashamed of what he was feeling or not feeling. I think that's something that, whether people are in the closet or not, they continue to struggle with, being vulnerable and true intimacy. I think it's possible to have sex with someone and not be intimate with them, and that's kind of what it looks like sometimes.

On equating sex with death because of AIDS

I think this is true for my generation. I'm 33 years old. I was born in 1985 and I would say until, frankly, the last two or three years — with the introduction of PrEP/Truvada — for most gay men, a defining aspect of our sexual experiences has been an awareness of not just STIs (STDs that we all need to be aware of and thoughtful about), but, "Am I going to get HIV/AIDS?" Which is no longer a death sentence, as I understood it at the time. But certainly, that is a lifelong condition that's going to require treatment and support. There is a heaviness to that. There is a deep sense of foreboding that I think often turns into shame with time, because it feels like you're risking punishment.

On coming out to his mom by making a joke

I'd gotten a little memento from my speech team to celebrate the year or whatever, and everyone had a little motto, and my motto was like, "Not even his clothes are in the closet anymore," which I thought was very funny. And so I was talking to her about it and she was like, "What does that mean?" And I was like, "My clothes aren't in the closet anymore. Like I'm not in the closet anymore." She didn't find it funny. She was confused and she had a lot of follow-up questions. And that's how I ended up coming out to her. ...

I'm such a Sagittarius. I am a practical joker, like, I love to laugh, but I felt like I had messed up. This was actually really significant to her. And that I'd been cracking jokes on a moment that I had been waiting for years, right? And so I felt really bad, but then she called me back and was like, "Hey, I forgot to say, I love you, and you seem happy and that's all that matters, you know?" And that meant the world to me. It was really important for me to see that.

On how he "erased" himself in order to have a good relationship with his mother

We laughed a lot. We could talk about literally anything except my being gay, which began to feel more and more like a void. But you know, we talked about the news, and we would laugh, and she was so proud of how I was doing in school and as a student and in speech. ... It's this weird dynamic where you're struggling and you end up prioritizing the other person's feelings over your own, and I did it because I loved her. I did it because I felt like I was causing her pain by trying to talk about this, but she was still my mom. I needed to have her wisdom in terms of love and relationships, and I didn't get it, and really struggled as a result.

On knowing he was a writer from an early age

It was the thing that I could always count on to get praised [for] in school. ... Middle school was when I started really going for it, like asking for extra credit, and like taking risks and doing more. Then also in literature discussions about short stories and fiction or whatever, it all made so much sense to me. I remember learning the narrative arc in maybe the eighth grade — resolution and climax — and it just made sense. I was like, "Oh, duh! Duh." And I literally never heard it before ... but kind of like with queerness, it felt like I was being given language to explain something I already understood. I just get it. It's just in me.

On why he moved to Columbus, Ohio after Trump became president

Honestly, America's depressing, right? If you're paying attention in any substantive capacity, America is really stressful and anxiety-inducing and depressing. And I now understand that as an adult, and it's not [my] fault. And then Trump became president, and truth is, on Inauguration Day, January 2017, I had a total breakdown. I had an absolute breakdown. I knew it was coming because I took a personal day, so I was home so I already knew on some level. But I remember watching Barack Obama and Michelle Obama walking to the helicopter, and I absolutely fell apart. I could not stop crying, and I opened the knife drawer in my kitchen. I was looking at those knives and I started saying, "I can't go back. I can't go back. Please don't make me go back." And the "back" was the months after my mom passed away. It was the worst, the most raw I had ever felt, and I'm glad that I talked to a friend and I started therapy and that helped tremendously.

But, you know, the last few years working in media [at BuzzFeed], it's required so much of all of us, really, and certainly people [for whom] this is our job to talk about these issues: We can't just turn off our phones and stop reading the news, unfortunately. That's a high demand. And I was starting to feel really threadbare on an ongoing basis. And so I knew I wanted to change. And so I wanted to leave New York and I wanted to leave media in the way I was working in it, to go back to the basics.

Ambassador: Giuliani, Acting In Trump's Interest, Tried To Cast Biden In 'Bad Light'

 Cache   

Updated 2:45 p.m ET

William Taylor, the top U.S. diplomat to Ukraine, told congressional investigators that President Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who was orchestrating an international pressure campaign on Ukraine, was acting in the president's interests and trying to cast former Vice President Joe Biden "in a bad light," according to a transcript of Taylor's testimony released Wednesday.

"I think the origin of the idea to get President [Volodymyr] Zelenskiy to say out loud he's going to investigate Burisma and 2016 election, I think the originator, the person who came up with that was Mr. Giuliani," Taylor said, referencing Burisma, the Ukrainian energy company that Biden's son Hunter sat on the board of.

New Jersey Democrat Tom Malinowski followed up, asking Taylor, "And he [Giuliani] was representing whose interests in — "

"President Trump," Taylor replied.

Wednesday was third straight day that congressional investigators released full depositions of key players in the Ukraine affair, which has led to the impeachment inquiry into Trump. At issue is whether the president sought a quid pro quo from his Ukrainian counterpart in the now infamous July 25 call: the release of military aid in exchange for an investigation into the Bidens. The president insists his call with Zelenskiy was "perfect."

But as Taylor said during his deposition: "That was my clear understanding, that security assistance money would not come until the president [of Ukraine] committed to pursue the investigation."

When Taylor testified Oct. 22, he opened the window wide into the pressure campaign, according to his opening statement.

Taylor testified that he "became increasingly concerned" that "irregular, informal channels" were running contrary to U.S. foreign policy toward Ukraine.

The U.S. was withholding military aid that had been allocated by Congress to Ukraine, which was fighting Russian troops in the eastern part of the country.

Taylor and others have testified that it became clear that Trump, through this irregular channel led by Giuliani, was withholding the funds to get Ukraine to investigate conspiracy theories about the 2016 presidential election and the Bidens.

Later in his full testimony, Taylor said he believed Trump and Giuliani wanted Burisma looked into in order to cast Biden "in a bad light" and for the benefit of Trump's re-election.

"[A]s I understood the reason for investigating Burisma was to cast Vice President Biden in a bad light," Taylor said.

Rep. Patrick Maloney, a Democrat from New York, followed up to be clear: "To cast Vice President Biden in a bad light?"

"Right," Taylor replied.

"And the political campaign would be what political campaign?" Maloney asked of Taylor's reference to Burisma being beneficial to a campaign.

"A political campaign for the reelection of President Trump," Taylor said.

Taylor expressed his disapproval at the time, according to text messages that have been released as part of the investigation.

"I think it's crazy to withhold security assistance for help with a political campaign," he wrote to Gordon Sondland, Trump's ambassador to the European Union.

As a result of Taylor's — and others' — testimony, Sondland amended his original deposition to acknowledge that he had, in fact, told an aide to Ukraine's president that it was unlikely Ukraine would receive the aid unless its leader made a public statement that the country was looking into the conspiracy theories.

According to former Ukraine special envoy Kurt Volker's testimony, released Tuesday, Giuliani, who was seen as speaking for the president, insisted that any public statement to fight corruption include the two investigations. If not, Giuliani said, according to the testimony, it would show Ukraine was not serious.

Taylor's October testimony appeared to rock some Democratic members of the committees who questioned him.

Andy Levin, a freshman Democrat from Michigan, called Taylor's closed-door testimony his "most disturbing" day serving in Congress.

Taylor has been a U.S. diplomat for decades and was first appointed ambassador to Ukraine by Republican President George W. Bush.

The interviews were conducted separately and have been edited into a “roundtable” conversation format.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

A Christmas Story

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

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

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

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

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

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

Coate: What is the legacy of A Christmas Story?

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

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

Long live Jean Shepherd and his A Christmas Story.

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

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

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

We’ve also heard from Sony that the previously reported 12/18 street date for Venom (which came from retail sources) is not correct. We’re hearing the actual date may be 1/8/19, but the studio would like you to know that officially the title is still TBA. Warner’s Smallfoot now appears to be a 12/11 release. And it looks like Julius Avery’s Overlord is coming to 4K as well, sometime early in 2019 from Paramount. We’ve updated our 4K Ultra HD Release List here at The Bits accordingly.

And Lionsgate will release The Oath on DVD on 1/8, with the Digital release on 12/28. They also have American Renegades coming to Blu-ray and DVD on 1/22.

In other news today, if any of you are fans of classic cinema and director Orson Welles, I highly recommend you check out his final film that was recently finished and released on Netflix: The Other Side of the Wind. And I also highly recommend you check out the new documentary about the making of this film on Netflix: They’ll Love Me When I’m Dead. Both are absolutely fascinating insights into to the mind and genius/madness of Welles in his later years. They’re really not to be missed.

Also today, our old friend, director, and longtime special edition producer Robert Meyer Burnett has just posted the first episode of his new Robservations web series on YouTube. It’s meant to be a deep dive into various aspects of pop culture Geekdom. As anyone who knows Rob personally will tell you, he’s the perfect host for such a journey. The first episode is a visit with an old childhood friend in Seattle who’s now a member of the 501st Legion, building screen accurate replica Star Wars costumes and Landspeeders. Yes, Landspeeders. It’s pretty cool... 39 minutes of serious nerdvana. I highly recommend your pour yourself a cup of coffee and check it out here...

And finally today, we have a pair of deaths that must be acknowledged. The first is Canadian actor Douglas Rain, better known to many of you as the voice of the HAL 9000 computer in Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. He was also one of the founding members of the Stratford Festival. Some of you may not know this, but he also voiced the computer and robot butlers in Woody Allen’s Sleeper (1973). You can read more about him here.

News of this next death came in just as I began working on today’s news post here at The Bits, and it’s a toughie: Stan Lee, the legendary chief writer and editor of Marvel Comics, and creator/co-creator of so many iconic superhero and comic book characters has died this morning at the age of 95. Many, many people around the Internet will be posting tributes and remembrances of Lee today, to which the best I can add is that in all my many years as the editor of The Bits, I can scarcely remember a convention I attended in which I didn’t see Lee, pass him in the hallways, attend one of his panels, or hear his gravely but enthusiastic voice. And every time, it made me smile. He was a force of nature and had a tremendous impact on the entire pop culture universe and all its many inhabitants. He will be missed. You can read more about him here at The New York Times.

Tiffany "New York" Pollard Tells All About Secret Hookups, Flavor Flav and Her Best Lover

 Cache   

New York is in the mother f--king house!

It's hard to believe that it's been more than 10 years since Tiffany "New York" Pollard graced the small screen on her hit reality show I Love New York.

But even a decade later, fans can't help but follow the iconic reality TV star who first appeared on Flavor of Love to win over Flavor Flav's heart.

During an exclusive sit-down interview for E! News' digital series Just the Sip, Justin Sylvester had to get the tea from the beloved TV star. Let's just say New York came to play.

"I'm a diamond honey and there's so many facets to me," she explained to us. "I say New York is my sassy side, my edgy, punched up self if you will. Tiffany is a little bit more cooler. I'm a nerd. I'm a tomboy. I sit at home and watch black and white movies."

Missed an Episode of Just the Sip? Watch all the Juicy Interviews Here

When appearing on Flavor of Love, New York says she was absolutely attracted to the rapper.

"Honestly, with me. It's always personality first. I don't care what you look like," she explained. "As long as your personality is at a 10, that's so attractive to me."

But when she appeared on her own show, New York couldn't help but be blown away by some of the eligible bachelors.

"I've had some nights with [Chance] outside of the show. But you want to know who was really, really good? Buddha!" New York shared when revealing the best lover. "He's the one who climbed through my damn window. He was a pleaser too. He wanted to do everything. He pleasured me so well."

Climbing windows? Oh yes, let us explain.

When it was time for bed and cameras stopped rolling, some contestants tried to spend some quality alone time with New York.

"They were climbing through my windows at night. When the producers go home, they would climb through my windows," she confessed. "I'm like, 'Damn! They're already in here.' Pandora's box is open."

When asked about her current relationship status, New York tried her best to stay mum. And even though she didn't find everlasting love with a Vh1 star, the self-proclaimed HBIC is more than hopeful that she'll have a happy ending.

"He's floating around but until I have that rock on my hand, I'm single. Yah, I said it," she shared. "I'm looking for someone that can add to this complete masterpiece."

To hear even more from New York, listen to the Just the Sip podcast available wherever you stream your favorite podcasts.

Teresa Giudice and Kids Travel to Italy to See Joe Giudice Amid Marriage Drama

 Cache   

Teresa Giudice is on her way to Italy to reunite with her husband, Joe Giudice.

The Real Housewives of New Jersey star, who hasn't seen Joe in-person in over three years, is heading overseas with the couple's four daughters for the family reunion.

The Bravolebrities' daughters, Gia and Milania, both posted footage from the John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York on Wednesday.

"Never been more excited," Milania wrote on Instagram alongside an image of an airplane. "I can't wait to see you buddy @joegiudice."  

Joe has been in Italy since October, after being released from ICE custody. He's currently awaiting a decision on his deportation appeal.

It was just over a week ago that Teresa and Joe—who are also parents to Gabriella and Audriana—opened up about the future of their marriage during a bombshell interview with Bravo's Andy Cohen.

"If we stay together, we stay together," Joe said via video chat from Italy. "If we don't, we don't. You know, it's a conversation that...you know, we'll see."

Joe also addressed Teresa's comments about their marriage from earlier in the year, saying, "I mean, listen, I don't like that she said that...No matter what happens, I'll always love her."

Teresa & Joe Giudice Accuse Each Other of Cheating

Over the weekend, Joe took to what appears to be his new Instagram account to share a series of photos from Italy, including pictures with Teresa's father.

"On the other side of the world," Joe captioned the Instagram post, adding the hashtags #familyandfriends #forgetaboutit.

Ahead of the family reunion, Gia took to Instagram to gush over her dad, commenting on one of his pictures from Italy.

"You look so good daddy," Gia wrote, adding two heart emojis.

The 18-year-old also shared that same photo of Joe on her own Instagram page, captioning the post, "see you soon daddy."

Since his first Instagram post, which went up on Halloween, Joe's account now has over 70,000 followers. We'll have to wait and see if the Giudice family posts any reunion photos on social media during their time together in Italy.

(E! and Bravo are both part of the NBCUniversal family.)

Lake Michigan College to host refugee speakers, other events for International Education Week

Lake Michigan College will host a series of public and student events on its Benton Harbor campus in honor of International Education Week, November 18-22. 

International Education Week is a joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education. It is celebrated annually across the nation to acknowledge the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. 

LMC will host a free, public Lunch and Learn event on Thursday, November 21, 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. in the Todd Center, rooms 1304 -1308. Guest speakers Asu Iyakaremye and Imran Mohammad will speak about their experiences as refugees, followed by a question and answer session. LMC will provide international coffee and chocolates made by LMC culinary professor and chocolatier, Chef Luis Amado. Guests should bring their own lunch.

Twenty-five-year-old Imran Mohammad was born stateless in Rohingya. At age 16, he fled Myanmar to save his life and search for freedom. He ended up in a Papua New Guinea detention center on Manus Island for four years where he taught himself to read and write in English before arriving in Chicago in 2018. His story has been featured in the New York Times and ABC’s “Foreign Correspondent” series.  

Asu Iyakaremye was just three-years-old when he and his parents escaped the 1994 Rwandan genocide. They eventually landed in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where Iyakaremye attended college and now works at Bethany Christian Services helping unaccompanied refugee children.    

Both men are making the most of their new lives in the U.S. as they work through the trauma they experienced on their journeys. They share their stories to bring hope and understanding to others.  

Other International Education Week events include “Listen to Our Stories – Beyond the Borders” on Monday, November 18, noon – 2 p.m in the Hawk’s Nest second floor. Guests can view poster displays and picture collages, and hear student-led presentations and audio stories. 

Trivia Tuesday will be on Tuesday, November 19, noon – 1 p.m. in the Hawk’s Nest second floor. Student teams will compete in a Jeopardy-style game to test their knowledge of international facts.

International Celebration Day will be held Wednesday, November 20 with a parade beginning at 11 a.m. at the Welch Center, a program at noon in the Main Building, and a celebration at 12:30 p.m. in the Hawk’s Nest, second floor.

DAGWOOD'S CHOCOLATE SANDWICHES: National Sandwich Day

 Cache   
What is more fitting than Dagwood's Chocolate Sandwich for National Sandwich Day. I believe that Dagwood probably would have added lots of other ingredients such as bananas and peanut butter, and that would be great, but how can you go wrong with chocolate, butter, and bread?

I've posted several Chocolate Sandwiches over the years,  so today I turn to my "Tie-In" Cookbook collection and specifically Blondie's Cook Book for today's recipe. Dagwood is the iconic King of Sandwiches. My Dad used to make Dagwood Sandwiches... they were sandwiches that contained every thing but the 'kitchen sink'. FYI: My father never added chocolate.

Dagwood Bumstead, in case you don't know, is one of the main characters in comic artist Chic Young's long-running comic strip Blondie. He first appeared in the U.S. sometime prior to February 1933.

What's Cooking America defines the Dagwood Sandwich as a multi-layered sandwich with a variety of fillings. The term is used to denote a sandwich put together so as to attain such a tremendous size and infinite variety of contents as to stun the imagination, sight, and stomach of all but the original maker. Dagwood sandwiches is a term so well-known that it's in the Webster's New World Dictionary.

According to the creator of the comic strip, Murat Bernard “Chic” Young (1901-1973), the only thing that Dagwood could prepare in the kitchen was a mountainous pile of dissimilar leftovers precariously arranged between two slices of bread. Dagwood became known for his huge sandwiches he created on evening forays to the refrigerator. The comic strip is produced today under the direction of the creator's son, Dean Young, the strip has continued to keep up with the times.

Blondie's Cook Book: Chic Young's Classic Cook Book with New Comic Art Selections by His Son Dean Young (Gramercy Books, New York 1947, 1996)

This Comic says it all:


CHOCOLATE SANDWICHES RECIPE: Not sure how many sandwiches (or layers) this is supposed to make, but that's a lot of sugar, even if the chocolate is probably sugarless. I've never followed this recipe, so I'm thinking the amount of sugar might be a mistake.




          

New York Courts Continue to Differ on Interpretation of Primary and Noncontributory Clauses

 Cache   
Most insurance professionals encounter additional insured coverage issues on a daily basis, and priority of coverage is sometimes part of an additional insured analysis. Policies issued by insurance carriers contain primary and noncontributory language on an increasing basis, and that language is sometimes located within a separate endorsement or may be part of the additional insured endorsement. Generally speaking, a primary and noncontributory provision modifies the policy’s other insurance provision to specify that coverage provided under the policy to an
          

The five best Brutalist buildings in the District

 Cache   

We published this post on April 13, 2017. We’re sharing it again for a fun read over the weekend.

When Metro began painting the interior of one of its original stations in 2017, the ensuing uproar shone a spotlight on how unpainted concrete surfaces are a part of the area’s architectural heritage. Metro was just one part of a building boom that swept Washington in the 1960s and 1970s, leaving DC with a substantial legacy of Brutalist structures that celebrate the geometry and texture of raw concrete. This post highlights five buildings that combine the Brutalist style with a human scale.

Perhaps Brutalist architecture never got a fair chance because of a false cognate. The public has long misunderstood this least lovable of architectural styles, but several local buildings show that even Brutalism can be beautiful.

In English, “brutal” architecture sounds harsh and cruel. Yet the term originated in French, where “brut” means wild, rough, or unfinished: “brut” Champagnes haven’t been sweetened with added sugar.

Le Corbusier, the controversial Modernist architect, marveled at how reinforced concrete combined steel’s flexibility with concrete’s rigidity. Reinforced concrete could leap in organic curves and span vast distances without support; it could be cast into novel shapes and its surface raked with three-dimensional textures. Corbusier left his concrete structures “brut,” thus inspiring “Brutalism.”

“It does no good to pretend that Brutalist buildings are easy to like, or that everyone can be convinced to like them,” writes New Yorker critic Paul Goldberger. “But ease and user-friendliness are not the only architectural virtues…. The earnestness of the best Brutalism—the belief in the power of architecture that it represents—continues to be inspiring.”

Brutalism’s brash idealism—its emphasis on big and bold shapes, honest use of mass-produced materials, and rejection of elitist finery—combined with its (yes) low costs to make an irresistible choice for its era’s expanding government bureaucracies. Brutalism was “authoritatively civic in the time of Kennedy-era optimism and the Great Society, before US attitudes toward the public realm changed so dramatically that it has become hard to evaluate the aesthetics on their original terms,” write Michael Kubo, Mark Pasnik, and Chris Grimley.

The results surround us here in Washington, where Brutalist buildings house Great Society legacies like HHS and HUD, plus the university libraries of Georgetown and George Washington. Few will mourn other infamous local examples of Brutalism, like the FBI headquarters or the now-demolished Third Church, particularly since they suffer from the clumsy and pedestrian-unfriendly streetscapes common during their era.

But Washington also boasts several buildings that showcase Brutalism’s sculptural and textural possibilities, while also supporting the urban fabric around them.

1. Washington Metro stations, completed in 1976 and onwards by Harry Weese & Associates.

Last year, the American Institute of Architects bestowed its 25 Year Award, which goes to an architectural design that has stood the test of time, onto the Metro system.

The “Great Society Subway,” as Zach Schrag‘s landmark book called it, shapes simple concrete into heroic vaults that impart a bit of the capital’s majesty to commutes. The coffered vaults also serve practical purposes, distributing structural loads and keeping sightlines open.

The book District Comics includes a comic-strip retelling of Metro’s design process by Jim Ottaviani and Nick Sousanis.

2. Federal Home Loan Bank Board and Liberty Plaza (now Consumer Financial Protection Bureau), completed in 1977 by Max O. Urbahn Associates (architect), and Sasaki Associates (landscape architect).

This structure shows that Brutalism can respectfully frame not only a variety of historic buildings but also human-scaled open spaces and the mixed-use street grid. The building shelters a small plaza that is one of the most popular paved plazas downtown.

The Commission of Fine Arts recently panned proposed renovations, saying they “would have the overall effect of transforming noteworthy modernist architecture into a more conventional, contemporary office building.”

3. The American Institute of Architects, completed in 1973 by The Architects Collaborative.

The AIA’s headquarters stand as an elegant, tiered rear scrim for the curious Octagon House, built in 1801 as one of Washington’s grandest private houses. Although it’s hardly visible from the street, the building’s dynamic boomerang curve stands apart in a city filled with acute angles. The yard interposed between the two buildings, split between a hardscaped plaza on the headquarters side and a soft lawn on the house side, creates a quiet, shaded respite from the busy roads in front.

4. Sunderland Building, completed in 1969 by Keyes, Lethbridge & Condon.

Image by the author.

Just south of Dupont Circle and behind the Heurich House, this office building is just a bit taller than it is wide, but the pattern of window and door openings lighten what could otherwise have been a plain concrete cube. The windows sit deep behind angled frames that score the facade with a grid of of shadows that subtly change depth from different perspectives, while the top floor’s wide porches keep the façades off-center. The ground floor arcade lifts most of the ponderous concrete mass well above the sidewalk.

5. Brewood Office Building, completed 1974, Wilkes & Faulkner

Image by the author.

This tiny townhouse-sized building, a leftover from before the Golden Triangle flowered with hulking office blocks in the 1980s, might inspire a double take. At first glance, the facade’s irregular, flowing texture and drilled “nail holes” read as a wooden structure, but like its high-rise neighbors it’s entirely concrete.

“Board-formed concrete” takes its texture from wood that disappeared years ago—the wooden “formwork” that encased the concrete when it was being poured left its mark, and here, in a hallmark of Brutalism’s attention to process, the architects have celebrated this artifact.

Honorable mentions

In addition to these five buildings, two other buildings garner honorable mentions for being fine examples of Brutalism, although one’s located outside the District and the other had to hide its concrete under limestone panels.

1. Dulles Airport, completed in 1962 by Eero Saarinen.

Surely the most striking concrete form in this area is the suspended roofline of Dulles’ soaring terminal. Its roof upends all conventions, dipping inwards with what looks like an unstable curve and inexplicably resting its massive weight upon airy glass walls. Yet this instability subtly reminds us that flight itself is no mean feat of physics. The recessed curtain wall appears like a solid Washingtonian wall of stone columns on the exterior, and on the interior it dissolves into a faceted lens that scatters light throughout the day.

2. Embassy of Canada, completed in 1989 by Arthur Erickson.

Although this building is mostly clad in the federal precinct’s requisite limestone and was completed decades after the others on this list, Erickson has a reputation in his native Canada for sculpting concrete into daring, angular geometries. Here, Erickson allowed unfinished concrete to peek out from underneath the limestone skin in key locations, like this rotunda of columns at the building’s prow.

Historic preservation in DC prioritizes loud neighbors, not fine buildings

 Cache   

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

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

The biggest weapon in the arsenal

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

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

A rush to judgment

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

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

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

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

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

Still not special enough? A district often has lower standards

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

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

Other cities take a proactive approach to preservation planning

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

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

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

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

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

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

Are we collecting, or hoarding?

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

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

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

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

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

Preservation costs nothing today, but a lot tomorrow

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

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

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

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

Beware the starchitects, beware repetition

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Breakfast links: Delayed service

 Cache   

More streetcars, maybe late

DC is buying another streetcar from Oregon Iron Works, but there is some worry that the company might fall behind on the 2 cars it’s supposed to deliver by next August. (WBJ)

Can you hear me now?

The company that’s bringing cell phone service to Metro is having financial trouble and may not make an October 16 deadline to have service in Metro’s underground areas. (Examiner)

Golf course to buildings?

The owner of Reston National Golf Course, which happens to be right next to 2 Silver Line stations, wants to know if it can build something in place of the golf course. Many residents (and Tom Jackman) aren’t keen on the idea. (Post)

The man who’d fix Southwest

Misguided architects and planners turned Southwest from a solid though somewhat suffering rowhouse neighborhood into an excessively “masculine” superblock wasteland. Vancouver architect Bing Thom is working hard to repair it, but this time, the change will come by adapting existing structures and filling in spaces rather than forcibly tearing anything down. (City Paper)

Safer than that

Some reports make walking look unsafe in DC, but traffic fatalities and pedestrian deaths are on the decline, though there is still work to be done. (d.ish)

@Bikeshare gets 5 stars

Capital Bikeshare got 5 stars in a comparison of bikeshare operators’ Twitter usage; the account replies to others and tweets bad news as well as good. With 5,374 followers, it’s 3rd among operators worldwide. (Suprageography)

NY (heart) biking

Two-thirds of New Yorkers like bike lanes, despite tabloid reporters’ and even New York Times reporters’ spin that casts biking as fringe or bikeshare as thus-far-unpopular. (Streetsblog, Ben Ross)

And…

Breakfast links: Improvements

Fares will increase less

Thanks to an improving economy and cost-cutting measures, Metro riders will likely have to shoulder a smaller fare increase than initially thought. (Examiner)

Now you see Silver, now you don’t

Governor Bob McDonnell had offered $300 million to help pay for the Silver Line but now he refuses to pay a dime. Phase II might not get built, and if it does, tolls will have to rise substantially. (Post)

From parking to high rises

Once dominated by parking lots, the Mount Vernon Triangle neighborhood has seen nine high rises built, with a dozen more on the way.  New restaurants have attracted more people to an area that now feels safer. (Post)

See ideas for the Mall

The Mall redesign competition has chosen its finalists.  You can see the designs this week at the Smithsonian Castle and Museum of American History but they aren’t online

or on the competition website. (Post)

Modify the Ike memorial?

The Eisenhower Memorial commission should ask Gehry to modify the design, and scale down the memorial to become part of a park instead of dominating, says Roger Lewis. But a Post editorial says full speed ahead. (Post)

Hard to grab lunch in Anacostia

By highlighting race, Marion Barry distracted from an otherwise valid point that it’s tough to find a decent lunch in Anacostia. The low density of the surrounding neighborhood hampers retail development. (R. U. Seriousing Me?)  (Tip: @ruSERIOUSINGme)

A city that still sleeps

2 restaurants recently opened in the U Street corridor with late night hours, but have now scaled back. They hoped the influx of new residents is turning DC into a 24-hour city, but it appears that time hasn’t quite yet come. (Post)

Brutal preservation

Breakfast links: What’s historic?

 Cache   

Taller can still be historic

The HPRB will consider the Hine project on Thursday. Neighborhood opponents want to make most aspects shorter, but the Historic Preservation Office thinks a tall(ish) building isn’t so bad. (Housing Complex)

Not historic enough, says HPO

Historic Preservation staff are recommending against designating the Market Deli at 1st and L, SE as a historic landmark. They say it’s typical of a historic period, but not exceptional enough to be a landmark. (JDLand)

Arlington GOP opposes CaBi

The Arlington GOP is now railing against Capital Bikeshare, claiming that the 8 parking spaces removed for 4 stations will cost Arlington revenue while ignoring the revenue from CaBi. (TheWashCycle) … Why can’t Arlington have a Republican leader like Pat Mara?

Some Maryland officials support TOD only in theory

Maryland’s housing agency is moving to New Carrollton as Governor O’Malley keeps his smart growth promises. Comptroller Peter Franchot says he supports TOD, but he’s more concerned with keeping Anne Arundel County drivers happy. (Citybizlist)

Orange plays race card in final weekend

Vincent Orange started distributing a racially-charged flyer in black neighborhoods that says, “He walks like us. He talks like us.” (Post) … Nobody really knows who’s going to win tomorrow. (Post)

Paying drivers to avoid traffic

DDOT is offering 2,000 drivers $50 a month to avoid the New York Avenue bridge during construction. Is spending $100,000 a month to encourage people to switch modes a good idea? Won’t traffic congestion be a strong and cheaper incentive? (WAMU)

DC USA gets more stores

Modell’s, DSW, and Panera Bread will fill much of the remaining space at DC USA. But will Columbia Heights have independent retailers? Some space is set aside for local or minority business, some of which is leased to a Peruvian restaurant and an IHOP franchisee. (Post)

Bus stop proximity by income

Bus riders have shorter walks to the bus stop in DC’s high-income neighborhoods than in its low-income neighborhoods.  One explanation might be that the city’s densest neighborhoods, where transit service is also the densest, are rarely low-income. (Human Transit)

And…

Arlington businesses are frustrated about new and uncertain sign rules (Examiner) … More Montgomery county employees are getting free vehicles that they can also take home (Examiner) … Third Church has picked an architect to design a successor to their Brutalist structure. (Post)

Huobi Global va geler les comptes des utilisateurs américains

 Cache   

Huobi Global

Huobi Global, le 3e exchange en termes de volume échangé sur le marché d’après les données de CoinGecko, a annoncé qu’il allait prochainement geler les comptes de ses clients basés aux États-Unis. L’annonce a été communiquée le 4 novembre et la modification pour les clients américains de la plateforme prendra effet le 13 novembre prochain.

Migration vers Huobi US

Huobi a affirmé dans son communiqué que son contrat avec les utilisateurs interdit expressément aux clients des États-Unis d’utiliser sa plateforme de trading. Expliquant les raisons de cette décision, Huobi a cité les lois et réglementations des États-Unis en ce qui concerne les crypto-actifs. L’exchange originaire de Singapour encourage les clients américains à se tourner vers son partenaire américain, Huobi US (HBUS).

L’exchange américain est dirigé par Frank Fu, un ancien employé de l’application chinoise de retouche photo Meitu. Huobi précise que ceux qui ont commandé les cartes de paiement prépayées de Huobi, les remboursements seront effectués en Tether (USDT).

La plateforme demande aux utilisateurs américains de retourner les fonds de margin trading et de retirer tous leurs actifs. Les utilisateurs ne sachant pas quoi faire doivent s’adresse au support de la plateforme et Huobi Global « les escortera vers la sortie ».

Dans le cas où un compte dont les fonds sont inférieurs au montant minimum requis pour effectuer un retrait ou s’il contient des cartes de points non utilisées, ces fonds pourront être convertis en Bitcoin (BTC) et en USDT.

Une réglementation difficile

Comme dans le cas de Binance US, Huobi US propose des paires de tradings distinctes de celles de Huobi Global et fonctionne indépendamment de sa structure mère. La complexe réglementation américaine autour des cryptomonnaies est la raison pour laquelle certaines plateformes doivent créer une nouvelle entité pour rester dans la légalité et pour toujours être accessibles aux clients américains.

L’offre de Huobi US est donc relativement pauvre par rapport à Huobi Global qui propose 227 tokens différents. La nouvelle plateforme se concentrant sur le marché américain n’en propose que 56. Comme pour Binance US, si HBUS souhaite ajouter une certaine cryptomonnaie à sa plateforme, une approbation en amont des régulateurs est nécessaire.

Le marché américain semble difficile à approcher aussi bien pour les cryptomonnaies en elles-mêmes et les exchanges. Lors de la récente séparation de Poloniex avec la société mère Circle, le marché des États-Unis a été mis de côté et les clients américains ne sont plus en mesure d’effectuer des transactions sur la plateforme depuis ce jour. Depuis quelques mois, Bittrex a pris la décision de retirer certaines cryptomonnaies de son catalogue par crainte d’une action de la Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Ce choix de la part de Huobi Global pourrait aussi lui être bénéfique pour l’obtention de la BitLicence. Celle-ci se présente sous un ensemble de réglementations élaborées par le Département des Services Financiers l’État de New York pour les entreprises liées au Bitcoin et aux cryptomonnaies. Son obtention donne le droit à l’entreprise concernée d’ouvrir ses services aux habitants de l’État de New York et par conséquent d’améliorer sa visibilité globale.

From Football to Changing Trees & Pink Bikini Punch

 Cache   
Blog Topic: 
Body: 

      Well, the leaves for the most part have finished changing colors and with the winds and latest rains are pretty much either off the trees or are holding on for deal life. And my Directv signal is back to full strength and no channel diggy out. This past spring was the first time in the 7 years I have lived here that I have had a problem with the signal due to my neighbors trees getting to dense with leaves to pull a full signal and the first time in about 20 years that I have had Directv that I have had a problem at all of any kind, including weather related. So I am a happy man, especially in light that college football is coming down to playoffs and by December will be bowling and Division 2 & 3 championship playoffs. Yes folks I am a football junkie and I watch and follow teams from all over the country. I also enjoy football tailgating food, which constitutes more finger foods than anything else and I mean making them as much as I enjoy eating them. Although the Cape is not a hub of football activity like the mid-west were I grew up and spent most of my years. In the land I come from we put it simply like this, once a Buckeye, always a Buckeye and we all bleed Scarlet & Gray. But up here on the Cape I have had to learn to live with other Big !0 fans, until the day we play each other than all bets are off for that day. Pro football is another story up here, and is different than being off Cape. The Cape is now more of a hodgepodge,  potpourri or mishmash of people from around the country who have settled here. Sure our patriots are strongest, but we have people from that weird state of New York (ok take a laugh right now, its a joke, yet not as serious as to Ohio State Buckeyes the state up north during football season, we don't use the M word at all, still it's a joke). But literally we have east coast rooters, west coast rooters, AFC, NFC of all divisions. So we can mix fairly well out here and have fun at it. Bottom line however is football is not that big of a deal as it is in the mid-west whatever division you follow. So getting my signal back is like a kid on Christmas seeing all the gifts under the tree, not knowing which one to open first. What game to watch, do I go split screen or quad screens, and do I stay up till 1:30 am to watch the west coast games. Get the picture here. So having the winds come through and clear that path has been wonderful for me, as much as I enjoy seeing all the color that the change in season brings to the trees. But what is left are all the pine trees, still green, still protective of the blowing wind and sand, still beautiful, and still filling the air with that pine sent so many of us love. That sent combined with the salt-air was the give away we were so close to the Cape when we were traveling to vacation on the Cape over the years. That is what reminds us of what is so special here, not just in the warm summer months but also throughout the year. The birds that live here year round that call the pine trees their homes like the Warblers Nutcrackers to Wrens, Owls and more. The animals that crawl into their protection like coyotes and foxes to rabbits and chipmunks. The Cape is full of these protective shelters and our nature walks and preserves can be a place to find so much of what really happens here on Cape Cod. Sure I love my football, as many of us do, but sometimes we need to put the remote down and step outside and see all that is going on around us here on Cape Cod, besides worrying about who is going to clean up all those leaves and if I hide long enough watching football they will all go away by themselves. (P.S. some will say they are find just where they are at until spring,) So here is to fall football, if that is your thing, but please be sure to find a good weekend and go exploring what has not been revealed by the leaves falling off the trees and what new is showing up in the trees that are still so green and prevalent here on the Cape. Now let's have a great and wonderful fall in all that we do and let's explore this great and wicked awesome place we call as our home, old Cape Cod.         

      So small business report time, First a great place for breakfast, someplace I enjoy is the Keltic Kitchen. Folks it is the off season, so time to take advantage of some of these places you can not come close to eating at during high season and Keltic Kitchen is one of them. Located in West Yarmouth on Rt 28, facebook or try their website at keltickitchen.com, open daily from 7am-2pm. Reasonably priced for what you get and trust me, you won't leave hungry. And when you get don't forget to check out their gift shop in the back the Keltic Kottage, a wicked good place to pick up some of those Christmas or Holiday gifts and get your shopping done early. Good eats, and good gifts, and great staff to make your morning a great morning, and open year round. 
       And for Lunch or Dinner if you have not done so yet, you have got to try the Naked Oyster on Main St in Hyannis. Watch for their specials of $1 dollar oyster specials couple that with some clam chowder or puffed duck soup and folks I can be just has happy as a clam in the Cape Cod Bay. Just telling you. And now that it is scallop season, they are running specials with freshly harvested Nantucket Scallops, can you just pass me the towel now as I am drooling all over the keyboard right now. Folks this is one of the best restaurants here on the Cape, and off season is one of the these best times to get to know these folks better.
      As I am sitting here, with my glass of Cranberry Harvest Beer from Cape Cod Beer writing this blog, I have to make mention of my friends at Kappy's, located at 333 Iyannough Road, or online at hyannis.kappys.com or on facebook or twitter and instagram. This month they have two big events coming up, the first on November 16th is their Autumn Wine Tasting event from 2pm-5pm. Lots of good wine to taste and special on multiple bottle purchases.This is a major event for those who are wine lovers and a chance to try something new that you would have not otherwise tried. Then the following weekend, and just a weekend before Thanksgiving on November 23rd is their Grand Whiskey Tasting event. Folks what is a good holiday feast without a good Bourbon, Scotch, Rye, or some other great whiskey or is it whisky. Try something you have never had before, try something you thought you didn't like, maybe your tastes have changed. Talk to folks who make whiskey their business on pairings to go with Holiday dinners and especially desserts.Don't ruin a great dinner with bad whiskey, come check it out and and get the right whiskey for you and yours this Holiday season. Hope to see you there, I know I will be.     
      Well, it has been a busy place around here the past few weeks, with lots of weather, lots people of all ages and lots of fun. But now is the time to take a deep breath, get all these decorations cleaned up, picked up and put away, and get ready for the next holiday and that being Thanksgiving. No, we are not in Christmas mode yet. Unlike a lot of others, we still celebrate Thanksgiving here at the old homestead guard station and lighthouse. A few of the decorations from the last holiday will stay up, but we will also add quite a bit that notes our thanks to both the Pilgrims and the Native Americans as in the beginning they worked together, not against each other. We will have other displays of others who may have even come before the pilgrims like the Vikings and others. This display will be up through Thanksgiving weekend, Then we do a quick turn around and on December 5 start our Christmas, Hanukkah, and Kwanzaa which will run through January 5th. So we look forward to seeing you and your family sometime throughout the holiday seasons. 
      As far as what is happening with the actual lighthouse, LOL, well in between everything else is going on we still have station to run, see that the beacon is burning brightly, and the fog horn is sounded when needed. The weather meters and gauges still need read and reported on. Even with all the weather issues we have been overly fortunate that especially with all the high winds there were no high sea boating issues that we had to deal with. The sad thing is there was quite a bit of erosion but as the beach line changes so do the sandbars and channels. So as you fishermen and ladies head out over the next several weeks, be careful of changes that have occurred and continue to change those channel openings. Some may have changed drastically and want you safe. Also with the temperatures changes, there is fog out there, the horn will be sounding but again please be careful. I hope that all you recreational folk have a great time and please be sure our local harbor masters and coast guard folk are still on patrol, keeping things legal and honest, and making sure that your safety is top priority, so keep the PFD handy, the fire extinguishers up to date and all your licenses in a handy but dry place. Now we need to get to work get the changes need done, so that we can see you back here with the next display. I hope you have a great and wonderful and especially if you can do it right here on old Cape Cod.  
      This month's cocktail is more of a party style punch than an individual cocktail. It is holiday season and with lots of parties going on, I thought this would be perfect for any party (other than those going on at the actual work place). You know I normally do not do these types of drinks, but I feel this month it is appropriate, as I know a lot of folks like to prepare a nice punch style adult beverage. So with all that the name stays in the category, and since all the sites I found make it the same way not sure who came up with it but it is a real goodie. So please enjoy to the max, but be a responsible drinker, a responsible host and always have a designated driver, an alternative in transportation or an extra bed ready for those who need to just stay put. Now have a great and wonderful and let's get this party rolling.

      This week's recipe: Pink Bikini Cocktail Punch

      1      1.75 L      bottle of Raspberry Lemonade. (such as Minute Maid, Simply Lemonade, or your favorite)
1 3/4      cups        coconut rum
      1      cup          amaretto liqueur

      Combine raspberry lemonade, coconut rum, and amaretto liqueur in a large pitcher. Stir well, and serve over ice. You can easily double or triple this receipt for larger groups. And float a raspberry lemonade ring with mint leaves in it or raspberry lemonade ice cubs to keep cold.

The 25 Best Canadian Dividend Stocks for U.S. Investors

The 25 Best Canadian Dividend Stocks for U.S. Investors

The U.S. is home to literally thousands of dividend payers, which would seem to eliminate the need to look elsewhere for income. But there's a convincing case to be made for at least a couple dozen Canadian dividend stocks.

Newer income investors often look for the highest-yielding dividend stocks. They see a 7% yield as being better than 6%, 8% yields superior to 7%, and so on. But that's a much riskier proposition than it seems; sometimes, high yields are indicative of a troubled stock or company.

A safer approach is selecting companies with more reasonable current yields that consistently grow their payouts over time. Here in America, many investors look to the Dividend Aristocrats - a group of 57 dividend stocks in the S&P 500 that have improved their annual payouts for at least 25 consecutive years. But America isn't the only part of the world with Aristocrats. Canada, for instance, has 82.

The Canadian Aristocrats' standards aren't as stringent as those of their U.S. counterpart. To qualify for the Canadian Dividend Aristocrats, a stock must be listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange, be a member of the S&P Canada BMI (Broad Market Index), increase its annual payout for at least five consecutive years (it can maintain the same dividend for two consecutive years) and have a float-adjusted market cap of at least C$300 million.

We've trimmed down that list to 25 Canadian dividend stocks that are best suited for American investors. The following 25 Canadian Dividend Aristocrats trade on either the New York Stock Exchange or Nasdaq, and have increased their dividends annually for at least seven years.

Once Seen as a Novelty, Ranked-Choice Voting Gains Ground Nationally

 Cache   

Voters in New York City have revised the city charter to adopt ranked-choice voting, a new way of deciding who has won an election that is steadily gaining in popularity across the country. Supporters of ranked-choice voting include Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D.-N.Y.)

Under current election rules in most places in the U.S., the winner is determined by what is described as a “first across the post” system, meaning that the person with the most total votes wins. In a two-party slash two-candidate race, a person with 1,000 votes beats a person with 999 votes, for example. 

Of course, many races feature more than two candidates, and that’s where ranked-choice voting promises to offer voters a better way to navigate their choices.

Ranked-choice voting allows voters to select a favorite candidate, and then a second-favorite candidate, and so on. In New York City, the plan calls for allowing residents to rank their top five choices. 

If no candidate achieves a majority of the vote after the first round of counting, first-place votes for candidates at the bottom of the heap are set aside and those voters’ second-place votes are distributed among the top candidates, and so on, until a candidate achieves a majority.

It’s important to note that each voter still only has one vote—but under ranked-choice voting, the voter also has a new mechanism for maximizing the impact of that vote.

Critics argue that ranked-choice voting creates a muddle for voters, upending centuries of tradition that have, for the most part, worked pretty well. They also raise the concern that tabulation errors will be more likely in the future, given the sorting of ballots between those for the candidate who ultimately wins the election, and the so-called “exhausted ballots” of candidates with low vote totals, which are by design counted differently. All of this, they argue, will reduce confidence in the democratic process at a time when our institutions are already under pressure, thanks to allegations of foreign interference in the 2016 election and the mind-boggling, hanging-chad theatrics of the 2000 Bush v. Gore Florida recount.

But proponents counter that the system reduces the need for arduous runoff elections, and that it is particularly well-suited for municipal elections in which a diverse, multi-candidate field—often from within a single political party—resu

ClassPass Turns to Corporate Wellness for Growth

 Cache   

ClassPass started as a way for fitness-minded consumers to book classes across studios. But the wellness platform has found another line of business: corporate deals adding ClassPass to employee benefits packages.

In the past six months, ClassPass’s corporate business has “quintupled,” according to CEO Fritz Lanman. “We believe it’s the first corporate wellness program that aligns incentives between the corporate [human resources] team, the provider, and the studios,” he says. “We make more money if people work out more.”

Founded by Payal Kadakia in 2013, ClassPass says it will offer its service—which charges consumers a monthly fee to attend fitness classes or wellness activities in a variety of different studios—in 30 countries by the end of the year, up from just four in mid-2018. As part of this period of growth, ClassPass began piloting its corporate wellness program a year ago. Companies signed on so far include Etsy, Facebook, Gatorade, Glossier, Google, Morgan Stanley, Southwest Airlines[/hotlink ignore=true], and Under Armour.

The company is diving into the market at an opportune time. This summer, consumers launched boycotts of SoulCycle and Equinox—a popular corporate gym membership offering—when parent company chairman Stephen Ross held a re-election fundraiser for President Trump. Analysis of SoulCycle booking records found that attendance declined between 6% and 7.5% in the weeks following the boycott.

Lanman declined to comment on how the boycotts of ClassPass’s competitors (SoulCycle doesn’t offer its classes through the platform) affected the company’s business, but says, “What we learned from the Equinox debacle is that customers do care.”

The company has endured some growing pains in its six years. Its original hook was a $99-a-month membership that provided access to an unlimited number of fitness classes in New York. The startup steadily raised prices before introducing a credits-based system, which it overhauled last year to incorporate fluctuating class prices based on the studio’s availability and demand. Consumers now pay between $19 and $199 a month for between 10 and 130 credits that can be spent on classes.

Consumers have for the most part adapted to the new ClassPass and its new value proposition, says Kadakia, who is now the company’s executive chairman: “A lot of the friction and constraints we’ve had, we’ve been able to get over.”

That helps on t

One whale is worth a thousand trees

One whale is worth a thousand trees
Marco Magrini looks at the carbon capturing power of the ocean’s giants

In the mid 19th century whales were on the route to extinction. Albeit hunted for a very long time, whales had become the main source of the oil rich Americans used to illuminate their homes. Whaling rapidly rose to an industrial level, with a fleet of nearly 800 ships, taking a tremendous toll on the world’s biggest animals.

Thankfully, the cetacean species were spared by the almost concurrent invention of the kerosene lamp (in 1857) and the discovery of the first oil field in Pennsylvania (in 1859). Petroleum smelt better and did not spoil on the shelf, as whale oil did.

We now are at odds with what happened thereafter, when crude oil powered the most radical economic and social change in human history. Just today, the world will have consumed an average of 100 million barrels, or 15.9 billion litres. If we add other fossil fuel usage – coal and gas – we get the resulting emission of (a record) 37.1 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide spewed into the atmosphere last year. Oil saved the whales, yet it is endangering the entire planet.

Now, it turns out that we would be best off restoring whale populations to pre-whaling times. ‘When it comes to saving the planet,’ reads a recently published International Monetary Fund study, ‘one whale is worth thousands of trees.’ The equation is simple. Whales accumulate carbon in their bodies during their lifespan of 60 years. On average, each great whale sequesters 33 tons of CO2, which ends up at the bottom of the ocean when the animal dies.

But there’s more. Phytoplankton thrives on the iron and nitrogen found in cetacean excrements. ‘These microscopic creatures not only contribute at least 50 per cent of all oxygen to our atmosphere, they do so by capturing an estimated 40 per cent of all CO2 produced [by mankind],’ the study argues. In other words, having the original five million whales defecating in our oceans (instead of the current 1.3m) would be a blessing.

The IMF’s authors suggest an urgent world moratorium on whaling, to be compensated with international financial mechanisms. Emmanuel Macron said, at the (failed) UN Climate Summit in New York, that France will not strike trade deals with non climate-abiding countries. To be more effective, he should have told countries still engaging in whaling to simply stop killing the creatures.

Seattle race between socialist and Amazon-backed candidate too close to call

 Cache   

Seattle race between socialist and Amazon-backed candidate too close to call* Amazon funneled $1.5m into city council elections * Egan Orion currently ahead of incumbent Kshama Sawant Egan Orion poses for a photo at his headquarters in Seattle on 28 October 2019. Photograph: Elaine Thompson/APA Seattle city council race between socialist Kshama Sawant and business-backed Egan Orion that saw unprecedented financial contributions from the local corporate giant Amazon and some of its top executives was too close to call early Wednesday – although Orion was ahead in early counting.Amazon funneled $1.5m into the local city council elections by way of the Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce’s political action committee, which backed Orion and six other candidates considered to be business-friendly. In 2015, the tech corporation and its employees only contributed about $130,000 to the city council candidates, according to the New York Times.With about half of Seattle’s ballots counted, incumbent council member Sawant trailed Orion by about eight percentage points. But given that later voters in the city often lean far left, it was difficult to predict in the early hours of Wednesday which candidate would ultimately prevail.Orion said he was excited about the initial results and while he thought the funds from Amazon may have had a very minor impact, he considered them unnecessary.“From my perspective, I think that the Amazon money was a big distraction when we were trying to make our closing arguments with voters,” said Orion.Some top local-based global giants such as Amazon, Boeing and Microsoft also contributed to Orion’s campaign. Kshama Sawant speaks at City Hall in Seattle. Photograph: Ted S Warren/AP“We have run a historic grassroots campaign, with working people, community members rejecting Amazon and billionaires’ attempt to buy this election, and that doesn’t mean we’re going to win every battle against the billionaires,” said Sawant..“What matters is the political clarity that the billionaires are not on our side and that this is going to be a struggle.”At a time when many Seattleites are already critical of Amazon’s influence in the city – with many pointing to the role it has played in Seattle’s rising cost of living and growing income inequality – the contributions left an unsavory taste in some residents’ mouths.Sarah Champernowne, 29, a tech worker in Seattle who is a strong supporter of Sawant, said she was concerned about the corporation contributing this type of money in the election.“It’s supposed to be a democratic process and it’s not a democratic process when Amazon can contribute that much to basically a small election,” she said.Sawant, a member of the Socialist Alternative party and former tech worker, has long been a fierce critic of big business and its influence on the city. After winning a council seat six years ago and becoming the first socialist on the Seattle city council in almost 100 years, she soon helped lead the push to bump the city’s minimum wage to $15 an hour (a first for a major US city). She also helped secure better protections for renters, such as barring landlords from increasing rent on substandard homes.But her battle against the influence of big business came to a head with her push last year for the Head Tax. The proposal would have implemented a per-employee tax on corporations making more than $20m each year to fund housing and services for the homeless in a city that has the third largest homeless population in the US, according to a 2018 federal report. With about 45,000 workers in Seattle, Amazon would have probably had to pay millions each year through the tax.The nine-member council unanimously approved the tax. But after Amazon, another locally based global giant, Starbucks, and other companies contributed financially to the campaign to kill it, called No Tax on Jobs, all but two members of the council then quickly voted to repeal it. Sawant and Democratic council member Teresa Mosqueda, who is not up for re-election this year, were the only two who voted for the tax.Sawant has said that if she were re-elected, she would push for the tax again. She has also been very vocal about the need for rent control in Seattle (it is currently banned in the city), and recently proposed a plan in which rent increases each year would not be allowed to outpace inflation.Orion, an LGBTQ community leader and huge advocate of small businesses who considers himself a progressive liberal, does not support the Head Tax or rent control. Instead, he proposed plans that involve landlords being prohibited from increasing rent more than about 10% annually and a partnership between Seattle and King county to create 1,500 units of permanent supportive housing.

The 25 Best Canadian Dividend Stocks for U.S. Investors

 Cache   

The U.S. is home to literally thousands of dividend payers, which would seem to eliminate the need to look elsewhere for income. But there's a convincing case to be made for at least a couple dozen Canadian dividend stocks.

Newer income investors often look for the highest-yielding dividend stocks. They see a 7% yield as being better than 6%, 8% yields superior to 7%, and so on. But that's a much riskier proposition than it seems; sometimes, high yields are indicative of a troubled stock or company.

A safer approach is selecting companies with more reasonable current yields that consistently grow their payouts over time. Here in America, many investors look to the Dividend Aristocrats - a group of 57 dividend stocks in the S&P 500 that have improved their annual payouts for at least 25 consecutive years. But America isn't the only part of the world with Aristocrats. Canada, for instance, has 82.

The Canadian Aristocrats' standards aren't as stringent as those of their U.S. counterpart. To qualify for the Canadian Dividend Aristocrats, a stock must be listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange, be a member of the S&P Canada BMI (Broad Market Index), increase its annual payout for at least five consecutive years (it can maintain the same dividend for two consecutive years) and have a float-adjusted market cap of at least C$300 million.

We've trimmed down that list to 25 Canadian dividend stocks that are best suited for American investors. The following 25 Canadian Dividend Aristocrats trade on either the New York Stock Exchange or Nasdaq, and have increased their dividends annually for at least seven years.

Student Robotics 2019: An Educator’s Guide

In our inaugural Educator’s Guide, 90 pages of rich and riveting robotics, coding, and real-world relevant learning—featuring exclusive interviews with leaders in the field. 
THE STATE OF | by Mark Gura

In 1994 (wow—that’s a quarter of a century ago!), I was a young, fresh faced, new district-wide instructional leader charged with bringing innovative, tech-based approaches into schools throughout New York City. By far, the most interesting and successful was the student robotics program I brought into middle schools. The very first time I saw kids working on robotics, I realized that something truly special was in progress.
Since then, the field of student robotics has gotten richer and recently, far more popular. Robotics, I believe, is something that every school should offer all students at some point in their educational experience.
Beyond school, the robotics industry continues to grow as well—but preparing kids for an increasingly robotics-saturated workplace is just one reason and frankly, not even the most important one, for educators to make robotics part of the instructional program. Robotics is simply the best way to teach the full spectrum of the STEAM Curriculum, which is why I’m so proud to have worked on this report and guide.
Some of what’s inside includes:
– An up-to-date, “State of” report on Student Robotics: What’s going on? How is robotics being integrated into the learning experience and where is it happening?
– A guide for Educators on where in the instructional program does robotics makes a good fit.
– An overview of the types of materials and resources available – including info from leading providers about what’s special about the materials they offer.
– Stories about how student robotics strongly enriches the lives of students and teachers.

Those are just a few of the things you’ll find in this free publication. I hope you enjoy it,

Writing ‘Akhnaten’

 Cache   

Akhnaten, Philip Glass’ “Egyptian opera,” opening at the Metropolitan Opera this weekend, premiered in 1984 and since then has been produced in many different stagings, primarily in European cities, where the composer has a very large and enthusiastic audience. Akhnaten’s American production story has been much more modest. In New York, it was first staged at the New York City Opera when that company was directed by Beverly Sills.

Three decades ago Glass was still thought of as an avant-garde downtown composer. Uptown audiences, especially those who went to the Metropolitan Opera, were not yet ready for his heady minimalist music and his extravagant theater-music conceptions. As co-author of Akhnaten’s libretto, and as compiler and translator of its vocal texts, I have traveled to consult on and see at least a dozen of the opera’s productions in cities around the world. But as a native New Yorker, I can’t help but being especially thrilled anticipating its reception at the Metropolitan Opera. For it was in 1956, at the “old” Metropolitan Opera House (before Lincoln Center was built in the early 1960s) that I saw my first opera—a performance of Verdi’s great “Egyptian opera” Aida, which featured a live elephant and made a deep impression on me, perhaps leading to a lifelong interest in matters Egyptian and Middle Eastern.

News Roundup

 

Zuckerberg, Facebook under mounting pressure over political ads

 

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

 

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

 

It’s a mess.

 

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

 

Facebook sued for age, gender bias in financial services ads

 

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

 

US launches Tik Tok investigation

 

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

 

 

Snowden: Facebook as untrustworthy as the NSA

 

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

The rental listing on Airbnb prohibited parties and the renter claimed it was renting the space for family members who were suffering from smoke inhalation from the fires in the Los Angeles area.

China launches 5G network

 

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

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

60s Futurism

 Cache   

The housing situation in California is too complicated even for the margins of this blog post, but Steve Jobs built a big round suburban office park with 14,000 parking spots not near transit and whatever precisely led to that, it's pretty hard to unshit that bed.
New York (CNN Business)Apple announced a $2.5 billion financial package to help address the housing crisis in California, which has worsened in part because of the rapid growth of tech companies.

The company laid out a five-point plan, including $1 billion for an affordable housing investment fund, $1 billion in mortgage assistance for first-time home buyers and opening some Apple-owned land valued at $300 million for development. The remaining $200 million will go toward a San Francisco housing fund and to support vulnerable populations.
In San Francisco, roughly 7,000 people are homeless. There is a shortage of affordable homes across the Bay Area, which is pushing out middle and low-income workers like teachers and restaurant employees. Critics say the influx of tech companies and their well-paid workers has contributed to the ongoing housing crisis.
Despite the (not quoted) headline they aren't going to "spend $2.5 billion" as much of this is just credit support.

Trini artist for Atlanta exhibition

 Cache   

THE WORK of Trinidadian artist Andrea McKenzie has been recognised with an award in Atlanta, Georgia, US, and will also be displayed this month in the Atlanta Mayor's Gallery.

McKenzie, who is based in Atlanta, recently won the 2019 I am Black, I am Power, Art and Creativity award from the Black People United Global Network with "Black" being an acronym for Beautiful Living Ancestors Controlling Kingdoms Irreplaceable Amazing Melanin.

The founder and CEO of Black People United Global Network, Dr Angela Harris, said the body, which was founded in December 2015, seeks to "strategically honour people of all nationalities and religions in the black race from all around the world.

"Our mission is to collectively come together under one roof to give recognition to well-deserving individuals who have gone above and beyond to help the relevancy of our image as a race to have a positive influence on our families, communities and business through their God-given gifts and talents."

[caption id="attachment_794566" align="alignnone" width="742"] Atlanta, Georgia-based Trinidadian artist Andrea McKenzie with her award I am Black, I am Power, I am Creativity from the Black People United Network with a portrait of the group's CEO and founder Dr Angela Harris. -[/caption]

McKenzie told Newsday via e-mail that she was nominated anonymously for the award.

"I felt honoured to be recognised amongst thousands of artists in the city of Atlanta, Georgia. I always work hard towards perfecting my craft and achieving my goals. Receiving this award brought great fulfilment and pride to be able to represent my country internationally in the arts."

McKenzie's work was also selected by the mayor of Atlanta, Keisha Lance Bottoms, to be exhibited at the Mayor's Gallery, City Hall, Atlanta, from November 14- January 4 in a dual exhibition called SANKOFA (go back and get it).

"I'm very excited to be given this amazing opportunity."

The exhibit will feature ten pieces from McKenzie of mixed media including glass, acrylic, resin, glitter and cowrie shells. She said her new, unique style is giving her the breakthrough, "as no one is doing it in Georgia."

[caption id="attachment_794568" align="alignnone" width="481"] The piece I Am by Andrea McKenzie. -[/caption]

Atlanta's Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs (OCA), in an online post, announced the exhibition by McKenzie and Ghana-born artist Alfred Addo. The joint exhibition commemorates the ideas embodied in Ghana’s Year of Return, a reflection on the 400th anniversary of the first enslaved Africans' arrival in Jamestown, Virginia.

Addo was born to a family of artists and has been exposed to art since infancy. OCA noted his primary inspiration came from his father, who exhibited his work regularly and challenged Addo to produce unique artwork.

"Although Addo was passionate about art, he also possessed a keen interest in the physical sciences, a field he found satisfyingly challenging. He was torn between going to college to study medicine and pursuing his passion to be a professional artist. In the end, he chose to follow his passion and pursue art full-time.

[caption id="attachment_794567" align="alignnone" width="452"] The piece is titled Unchained Love by Andrea McKenzie. -[/caption]

"Since then, Addo has specialised in sculpture as his core medium. Interestingly, his physical science background led him to experiment with different materials, including sawdust, which he played with as a child in the sawmill where his father bought and cut wood for his sculptures. Naturally, Addo grew up loving this medium and decided to make it the main material he uses in all his artwork. Passionate about the sustainability of the earth, Addo perfected the method of recycling sawdust and waste materials to create various types of sculptures and relief works."

Addo has successfully participated in many international art exhibitions in places including Johannesburg, Cape Town, New York, Chicago, Washington, DC, Miami, Santa Fe, New Mexico, Atlanta, San Diego, California, Martha’s Vineyard and in his home city Accra, Ghana.

OCA described McKenzie as "a true island girl" who comes from one of the most culturally diverse nations in the world, TT, and her natural aptitude for creativity was nurtured at an early age because of her family’s involvement in the nation’s world-famous Carnival.

"McKenzie’s fascination with contrast, textures, and fabrics was the fuel behind her kaleidoscope-like pieces. She uniquely infused glass, acrylic, and other materials on varying canvas, which propelled her into achieving a viable international clientèle."

OCA noted throughout her young career, she has exhibited works in multiple nations including TT and neighbouring Caribbean islands. Her art has also been exhibited in New York, Washington, DC, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Seattle, London and Australia.

[caption id="attachment_794569" align="alignnone" width="638"] Atlanta, Georgia-based Trinidadian artist Andrea McKenzie. -[/caption]

In 2013, after losing her job in event marketing, McKenzie pursued her passion for art and became a full-time artist, with clients in the US and Europe. As a full-time artist, she does commissioned pieces where people contact her via e-mail or on her website and let her know what they want, whether it is for their homes or businesses.

Her first exhibition, Pieces of Me, was held in Trinidad in 2013 and featured 25 pieces about her and life experiences, including first love and first disappointment.

McKenzie has clients from countries such as the US, Sweden, England, Scotland and TT. She works primarily with acrylic on canvas or wood board. Her dream is to have her pieces featured in the set decoration of successful television shows and box office movies and showcased all over the world.

To see more of McKenzie’s work visit her Instagram @andreas.heart and her art page on Facebook at Andrea’s Unique Art.

Sociocultural and Collaborative Antagonism in the Harold Prince-Stephen Sondheim Musicals (1970-1979)

 Cache   

“I can get an idea for a musical…from getting politically roiled up about one or another thing.” - Director/producer Harold Prince “I couldn’t have been less interested in politics.” - Composer/lyricist Stephen Sondheim Despite the above seemingly incompatible quotes, Harold Prince and Stephen Sondheim somehow ended up forming one of Broadway’s most enduring collaborative legacies. Prince, who strived to challenge his audience’s political complacency, often clashed with Sondheim, whose primary consideration was individual characterization and narrative arc. Prince also chose other collaborators who were more interested in creating politically challenging works, contrary to Sondheim’s focus. When collaborating, Prince and Sondheim independently followed their own paths and intuitions, a mode of creation that I call antagonistic collaboration. Focusing on four musicals – Company (1970), Follies (1971), Pacific Overtures (1976), and Sweeney Todd (1979) – I show how Prince and Sondheim’s antagonistic collaboration yielded politically and culturally complex works. My project builds on and challenges prior scholarship by insisting that the Broadway musical is a collaborative art informed by its historical and sociological contexts. Scholars from several disciplines have examined the texts that Sondheim created, but the nature of these analyses has tended to use an auteur model that ignores the embodied performance and the specific historical contexts for which these shows were created. My project provides a necessary intervention by investigating the interplay between the creative, collaborative process of each musical production and the larger socio-political context of 1970s New York. Each chapter offers a case study in antagonistic collaboration between Sondheim and another artist in the context of the cultural politics of the time. Chapter 1 explores Sondheim and Prince at work making Sweeney Todd. Sondheim’s music and lyrics zoomed in to Sweeney’s inner desire for revenge, as Prince’s staging and Eugene Lee’s set-design zoomed out to frame Sweeney as a victim of class oppression. Chapter 2 explores how Sondheim’s entirely aesthetic interest in Japan while writing Pacific Overtures worked independently from Prince and bookwriter John Weidman’s goal of critiquing American imperialism and pushing for Asian American representation on stage. Chapter 3 illustrates how Prince and co-director Michael Bennett turned Follies from a murder mystery into a show that intimately embodied discourses around sexism and aging, especially as related to the female body. Finally, Chapter 4 moves to the final collaborator, the audience, arguing that generational differences within the gay community led young people to read the main character of Company as gay against Sondheim’s and Prince’s authorial intent. Focusing only on Sondheim’s contributions to these important expressions of American culture misses the ways that Sondheim’s necessary collaborators explicitly put these shows in dialogue with the tumultuous politics of the 1970s, working against Sondheim’s attempts to avoid doing so. Highlighting the collaborative process and expanding the definition of who counts as collaborators allows for previously marginalized voices to become central to understanding the original context and enduring content of these works. The status of the musical as a collaborative performance done at a specific time and place, rather than a definitive text set down on paper, affords a flexibility of meaning. A range of creative figures involved in a production have their own agency to shape meaning. Historians of the musical must take this distributed, often antagonistic agency into account when attempting to understand the past.

Ehető ruhák bemutatójával nyílt meg a párizsi csokoládé kiállítás

Október 29-én startolt el Párizsban a Salon du chocolat közel egyhetes eseménysorozata, amely a világ egyik legfontosabb szakmai és egyben szabadidős eseménye a csokoládé szerelmesei számára – tudtuk meg az esemény honlapjáról.

A rendezvényen - amely egyébként a 25. jubileumát ünnepli - workshopok, bemutatók, versenyek is lesznek, miközben 60 ország mintegy 500 képviselője mutatja be termékét, szaktudását a nagyközönségnek. Az országok között szerepel például Szaúd Arábia és Tahiti. Magyarországról két kiállító érkezett: az egyik a Caffé Perté, akik kávéikról ismertek, de forró csokoládét is forgalmaznak; a másik pedig a Choco Me manufaktúra lesz, amelynek tulajdonosával, Mészáros Gáborral készült korábbi interjúnkat itt olvashatja. A kiállítás honlapja szerint a Salon du Chocolat-n öt kontinens kakaótermelői jelennek meg minden korábbinál nagyobb bemutatótérrel. 

Az eseményt kedd este egy rendhagyó divatbemutatóval nyitották meg, amelynek Chocolate Fashion Show neve is már sokatmondó. A show-n a csokoládé 500 éves történetét mutatták be, és  csokoládéból készült ruhakölteményekben vonultak fel a modellek. A ruhákat 24 neves divattervező és cukrász közös munkája fémjelzi. A gourmet-est egyben a szolidaritás estje is volt, amelyet az Afrikai Gyermekekért Alapítvány nevében rendeztek meg – ennek alapítója, Dominique Ouattara is jelen volt, aki egyben Elefántcsontpart first lady-je is.

 

Az ötnapos eseménysorozat másik fontos állomása a Nemzetközi Kakaó Díj ceremónia, amely tízéves fennállását ünnepli idén, és amelyért 55 kakaótermelő ország 225 mintája mérkőzik meg. A legérdekesebb azonban a Nemzetközi Cukrászati verseny lesz, amelynek első két napján amatőrök mérik össze tehetségüket egy bárki számára látható műhelyben, ahol kétféle süteményt kell elkészíteni három óra alatt. November 1. és 3. között aztán hat profi cukrász méri össze tudását, akik minden nap hat órán át küzdenek meg a konyhában egymással.

A Salon du Chocolat globális rendezvény. Novemberben még Lyonban, Bejrútban és New Yorkban is megrendezik, majd a jövő évben Szöul, Tokió, Brüsszel és Moszkva lesznek a házigazdái.

Törzs

Éppen az Arkangyal-tekintetű albatroszhoz címzett tengerparti kiskocsma teraszán ücsörögtek, és pokrócokba csavarkózva figyelték, ahogy a szél újra és újra megpróbálja a sarokba söpörni a fodros szélű hullámokat. Ön szerint hol van a tengerpart sarka? – törte meg a szélcsendet Bandika. Ervin jobb keze mutatóujját emelte fel fáradtan, és mutatta, hogy szerinte ott. Eltelt húsz perc, Bandikából pedig kibuggyant a felháborodás az új New York-i májtörvények miatt. Szerinte ugyan letagadhatatlan, hogy az emberiség nagy vétkeket produkál a táplálkozás, még inkább a táplálkoztatás terén, ám nem biztos, hogy épp a libamájon kéne elverni a port. Szegény libamáj semmiről sem tehet. Nem tehet a szalámikultúrát átszövő szalámitaktikáról, sem a gyomirtózott gabonából készült fehérlisztes akármikről, de még a pálmaolajról sem, ami mindenben ott van, és amelynek kitermelése a trópusi lakosságot erdőirtásra ösztönzi. 

Egy jó libamáj mindig egy jó libamáj lesz, kacsamájjal sosem helyettesíthető, kiabálta a parti szélbe Bandika. Mennyivel szenved jobban egy tömött liba, mint a négyzetdeciméternyi ketrecekben tojatott tyúkok milliárdjai? – fordult Ervinhez. New Yorkban régóta kampányolnak az állatvédő szervezetek az ínyenc étel ellen, mivel annak előállítását állatkínzás eredményének tartják. A tenyésztők ugyanakkor azt állítják, hogy a gyakorlatot, mármint a tömést, nagyon humánus módon végzik – lobogtatta a napilapot. Persze a szél erősebb volt, kikapta Bandika kezéből, azonnal lapjaira bontotta és belefújta a tengerbe. Ervin behúzta nyakát kabátja gallérjába és megállapította, hogy ha mindenki ezt csinálná, amit most Bandika, vagyis több mint hétmilliárd ember, akkor a világtengerek helyén nem maradna más, mint egy nagy átázott újságpapír-galacsin. Egy magazinmocsár. Mellesleg azt sem érti, miért érvel a libahizlaló vállalat azzal, hogy humán módon tömi a libákat. A humán azt jelenti: emberi. 

A liba viszont, ha megkérdeznék, nem biztos, hogy emberi bánásmódot szeretne, inkább libait, vagyis hogy bánjanak vele libához méltóan.

Mert ugye ha a liba hizlalná az embert, és a liba kijelentené, hogy minden rendben, hiszen libául bánunk velük, attól az ember sem nyugodna meg (ha közben meg is hízna a mája). Bandika szerint a libamájhoz házi tarhonya passzol, meg friss csalamádé. Ervin szerint tört krumpli, amelyet a máj kisütésekor visszamaradt, töpörtyűtörmelékkel gazdagodott zsír aljában érdemes törni, valamint savanyú paprika, lehetőleg fehér.

Mocskos kocsonyává kezdett összeállni az avar, amikor Bandika és Ervin megtudta, hogy New York államban betiltják a hízott libamájat.

'A Marvelous Life' Holds Stan Lee High As The Man Who Made Superheroes Matter

Jason LaVeris / FilmMagic

In 2018, Marvel Studios released Black Panther. The film grossed 1.3 billion dollars and was nominated for 7 Oscars including Best Picture (a first time for a superhero film).

Beyond the money and awards, the release of Black Panther was a global event. The story of a super-powered African king, leader of the most technologically advanced nation on Earth, allowed the film to address racism and the history of colonial oppression in entirely new and unexpected ways. If anyone was still raising questions about comics mattering for culture, Black Panther meant the definitive end of the argument. Marvel comics and their characters were culture.

So how did we get here? How did superhero comics, the supposed realm of nerdy teenagers, end up conquering the world?

The answer, in many ways, comes down to a single name — Stan Lee. Across a lifetime of creativity, collaboration and endless hustle, Stan Lee saw possibilities no else could imagine and made them real. And if you want to understand how Lee and Marvel did it, Danny Fingeroth's new book A Marvelous Life is the place to start. As a lifelong fan of Spider-Man, The X-Men, Star-Lord and the rest, it was delightful introduction to a guy I'd never met but felt I'd known my whole life.

Fingeroth, who did his own award-winning time at Marvel, begins by laying out the contours of Stan Lee's early life as the son of a Jewish New York immigrant family (Lee was born in 1922 as Stanley Martin Lieber). Through the 1950s, Lee managed to build a solid if unimpressive career working in comics. But then in the late 1950s, the comics industry crashed as TV gave teenage boys a different venue for their interests. By 1960, Lee felt stymied and trapped. He was planning on quitting comics once and for all to do something "important." It was that frustration that led Stan Lee to what Fingeroth calls "a midlife crisis heard 'round the world."

Seeing that other publishers were having some success reviving superhero teams, Lee's boss tasked him with coming up with a new comic. Lee took the assignment, but he didn't just want to create just another group of costumed do-gooders. Instead, he set out to imagine a different vision what it meant to be a superhero.

In this and the work that followed, Lee asked himself what would happen if an ordinary person got superpowers. Would it make their lives better or would it make them harder? What Lee was picturing were superheroes who weren't gods from another world or perfect, infallible examples of human righteousness. Instead, he wanted stories of flawed men and women, full of neurosis and anguish, who suddenly found they could fly or stretch or punch their way through brick walls. What would happen then?

What happened was The Fantastic Four. And then The Hulk. And then Thor and Spiderman and Doctor Strange and Iron Man and The X-men. Over the next few years, Lee along with the equally legendary Jack Kirby and Steve Ditko, managed to create a large fraction of what we now call the Marvel Universe. Many of the characters had huge, real-life challenges like Tony Stark (aka Iron Man) and his drinking problem. That meant these characters lived in a recognizable world. "I wanted to make it as realistic as possible" says Lee in an interview quoted in the book. "Instead of [superheroes] living in Gotham City or Metropolis, I felt I will have them live in New York City." Just as important, these new Marvel characters lived in the same world where they crossed paths, formed alliances (or broke them), had romances (and broke those too), all of which formed one, giant, seamless story.

It wasn't just the stories that were new. Lee saw something few others could recognize — a nascent adult audience for superhero comics. Rather than just a backwater of teenage fantasy, Lee understood that with the right stories, superhero comics could gain relevance in the rapidly emerging world of ever-present mass media. Then Lee went further. He not only saw the change coming, he understood how to become its personification.

Most folks only know Stan Lee through his charming and quirky cameos in modern Marvel films. But if you were serious about comics back in the day (for me "the day" was the mid-1970s when I was 11 years old), Stan Lee was a constant presence. One of Lee's great innovations in Marvel comics was to develop a relationship with his readers through the "Bullpen Bulletins." These were a kind of editor's news and information page where Lee drew back the curtain to let you see what was happening at Marvel's offices. And as Lee described it, something amazing was always happening including the occasional visit from a rock star or famous movie director who'd popped by to express their Marvel admiration.

That was Lee's genius. "Little by little [he] was making himself and Marvel into celebrities" writes Fingeroth. By becoming a regular presence within Marvel's pages Lee was "mythologizing what he and his peers did for a living, making himself and them as important as the characters whose stories they told." But Lee was making us, his readers part of that story too. He was convincing us that we, too, were part of something very important just by buying those slim volumes of The Avengers, Silver Surfer or Nick Fury and His Howling Commandos.

A Marvelous Life gives us strong insights into the forces that drove Lee and Marvel to success. But Stan Lee was also a complex man who could be both beloved and reviled. In particular, Lee's conflicts with collaborators, who felt he had stolen credit for their work, is also an important part of his story. This was particularly true for Jack Kirby. Fingeroth spends some time in the book unpacking Lee's long running dispute with Kirby and others. He also mentions abuse allegations previously noted by media. These sections were not particularly compelling to me, but they are an important part of Lee's legacy and Fingeroth handles them with grace.

One small criticism of the book is that it tells us very little of Lee's response to the founding and runaway success of Marvel Studios (beginning with Iron Man in 2008). That seems a strange omission given how much of Lee's later story is him trying to get Hollywood to pick up Marvel properties.

Taken as a whole though, A Marvelous Life is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand how Stan Lee set Marvel on the path to world domination (in a good way).

'We're All Struggling': Writer Saeed Jones Reflects On Identity And Acceptance

As a black gay kid growing up in Texas in the 1990s, poet Saeed Jones remembers getting negative messages about his identity from every aspect of his life. It was around the time of Matthew Shepard's murder in Wyoming, and Jones felt alone and unsafe.

"I was seeing these cautionary tales connected to identity," he says. "It was so clear that it was perilous to be a black gay boy in America."

And yet he couldn't be any other way: "Being gay isn't a choice, just like being black isn't a choice," Jones says. "I don't stop. I do not give up. I do not take America's 'no' to my identity for an answer."

In his new coming-of-age memoir, How We Fight for Our Lives, Jones reflects on his struggle to embrace his identity. The "we" in the title is intentional; he hopes the book will spark a conversation among a cross section of readers.

"We're all struggling," he says. "I want you to experience what's going on in my book and think about it in relation to your own life, whether that's because you're like, 'Oh this is totally different!' Or because you're like, 'Hmm. This is really familiar.' I think that's a useful way of thinking about memoir."


Interview Highlights

On his first sexual encounter with a man, hooking up in a library bathroom and trying to kiss and being refused

He was like, "Oh, absolutely not." And so I felt embarrassed and I think the only thing more painful than not getting what you want is almost getting it and then being shamed right at the last minute. ...

I was deeply ashamed. I thought I had messed up. But I think really he admitted he couldn't go there. He was working through some things, and so he was ashamed of what he was feeling or not feeling. I think that's something that, whether people are in the closet or not, they continue to struggle with, being vulnerable and true intimacy. I think it's possible to have sex with someone and not be intimate with them, and that's kind of what it looks like sometimes.

On equating sex with death because of AIDS

I think this is true for my generation. I'm 33 years old. I was born in 1985 and I would say until, frankly, the last two or three years — with the introduction of PrEP/Truvada — for most gay men, a defining aspect of our sexual experiences has been an awareness of not just STIs (STDs that we all need to be aware of and thoughtful about), but, "Am I going to get HIV/AIDS?" Which is no longer a death sentence, as I understood it at the time. But certainly, that is a lifelong condition that's going to require treatment and support. There is a heaviness to that. There is a deep sense of foreboding that I think often turns into shame with time, because it feels like you're risking punishment.

On coming out to his mom by making a joke

I'd gotten a little memento from my speech team to celebrate the year or whatever, and everyone had a little motto, and my motto was like, "Not even his clothes are in the closet anymore," which I thought was very funny. And so I was talking to her about it and she was like, "What does that mean?" And I was like, "My clothes aren't in the closet anymore. Like I'm not in the closet anymore." She didn't find it funny. She was confused and she had a lot of follow-up questions. And that's how I ended up coming out to her. ...

I'm such a Sagittarius. I am a practical joker, like, I love to laugh, but I felt like I had messed up. This was actually really significant to her. And that I'd been cracking jokes on a moment that I had been waiting for years, right? And so I felt really bad, but then she called me back and was like, "Hey, I forgot to say, I love you, and you seem happy and that's all that matters, you know?" And that meant the world to me. It was really important for me to see that.

On how he "erased" himself in order to have a good relationship with his mother

We laughed a lot. We could talk about literally anything except my being gay, which began to feel more and more like a void. But you know, we talked about the news, and we would laugh, and she was so proud of how I was doing in school and as a student and in speech. ... It's this weird dynamic where you're struggling and you end up prioritizing the other person's feelings over your own, and I did it because I loved her. I did it because I felt like I was causing her pain by trying to talk about this, but she was still my mom. I needed to have her wisdom in terms of love and relationships, and I didn't get it, and really struggled as a result.

On knowing he was a writer from an early age

It was the thing that I could always count on to get praised [for] in school. ... Middle school was when I started really going for it, like asking for extra credit, and like taking risks and doing more. Then also in literature discussions about short stories and fiction or whatever, it all made so much sense to me. I remember learning the narrative arc in maybe the eighth grade — resolution and climax — and it just made sense. I was like, "Oh, duh! Duh." And I literally never heard it before ... but kind of like with queerness, it felt like I was being given language to explain something I already understood. I just get it. It's just in me.

On why he moved to Columbus, Ohio after Trump became president

Honestly, America's depressing, right? If you're paying attention in any substantive capacity, America is really stressful and anxiety-inducing and depressing. And I now understand that as an adult, and it's not [my] fault. And then Trump became president, and truth is, on Inauguration Day, January 2017, I had a total breakdown. I had an absolute breakdown. I knew it was coming because I took a personal day, so I was home so I already knew on some level. But I remember watching Barack Obama and Michelle Obama walking to the helicopter, and I absolutely fell apart. I could not stop crying, and I opened the knife drawer in my kitchen. I was looking at those knives and I started saying, "I can't go back. I can't go back. Please don't make me go back." And the "back" was the months after my mom passed away. It was the worst, the most raw I had ever felt, and I'm glad that I talked to a friend and I started therapy and that helped tremendously.

But, you know, the last few years working in media [at BuzzFeed], it's required so much of all of us, really, and certainly people [for whom] this is our job to talk about these issues: We can't just turn off our phones and stop reading the news, unfortunately. That's a high demand. And I was starting to feel really threadbare on an ongoing basis. And so I knew I wanted to change. And so I wanted to leave New York and I wanted to leave media in the way I was working in it, to go back to the basics.

A Film Grows In Edward Norton's 'Motherless Brooklyn'

 Cache   
Edward Norton Masterclass - 14th Rome Film Fest 2019
Ed Norton wrote, directed and stars in a new adaptation of Motherless Brooklyn.
Ernesto S. Ruscio/Getty Images for RFF

Meet Lionel. He’s a private eye with Tourette’s syndrome. His boss is shot dead in mysterious circumstances, and Lionel is on the case.

That’s the premise of Motherless Brooklyn, the new film that Edward Norton wrote, directed and in which he stars.

The film is loosely based on a Jonathan Lethem detective novel of the same name which is set in the ’90s. But Norton sets his movie version in the 1950s, and he invokes famous New York City planner Robert Moses to explore how the powerful figure reshaped the city.

Hear our interview with Robert Caro, the author of “The Power Broker,” about Moses.

We talk to Norton about his new film, his long career and what’s next.

Produced by Michelle Harven.

Amerikanske leger pålagt å opplyse om risiko for lymfødem

 Cache   

Opptil 10 millioner amerikanere lider av lymfødem. Som i Norge opplever pasientene problemer med å ha en diagnose. Legene vet ikke nok om sykdommen, og pasientene er sent for behandling.

Men nå skjer noe. Den 2. oktober i fjor signerte guvernør i New York, Andrew Cuomo, en lov som er den første i sitt slag i USA. Loven fastsetter at alle pasienter som har stor risiko for å utvikle lymfødem, må informeres ...

全球自由民主的退潮之五 比美國更自由的台灣 ——惡鄰進逼,處境艱險

 Cache   
40多年前還住在台灣的時候,當時還在戒嚴令下。什麼事都難以推動,動輒得咎。報禁、黨禁、髮禁、無所不禁。還有一陣子電視上只能唱三首「愛國歌」。到海邊或海港區參觀、遊玩、照相,都有海防人員來加以禁止。那時剛開有一條從基隆港航行到花蓮港的花蓮輪航線,好奇一下去乘坐個來回。結果是關卡嚴格,檢查人員對每個背包、手提行李都要打開調查。在我背後排隊的一位西方觀光客看了搖頭嘆息。1979年來美後,發現美國海闊天空,幾乎百無禁忌。一位朋友的岳父走船來美,朋友要我帶他去見他岳父。我的車子直接開入港區,停靠在船邊。到機場接機也可直接進入登機門,到飛機門邊接送朋友。台灣與美國在自由度上真有如天淵之別。 但,曾幾何時,這個局勢卻一直在逆轉中。 1997年第一次回台後,覺得台灣的自由民主有很大的進步,社會也開放了許多。加上後來在沒經歷過威權統治的年輕世代的參與下,台灣也越來越走向自由開放的道路。反過來說,美國的自由民主反而在倒退中。這當然與2001年後的反恐有關,但更重要的是川普上台後,使美國的自由民主度一直在持續倒退中。以自由之家2019年的報告來看,台灣在政治權利、民權、與自由度的列比上都居1.0,總分數是93。美國在列比上居1.5 ,總分數是86。這種互調是我在四十多年前難以想像的。 自由之家的評鑒是基於政治權利(political rights)與民權(civil liberties)來算的。有一個總分(aggregate score)與一個自由度的評分(由最好的1到最壞的7)。全球滿分的只有三個國家:芬蘭、挪威、瑞典。與台灣同分的有四個國家:奧地利、英國、與兩個小國。比台灣還自由的有22個國家(許多是很少聽見過的小國)。台灣於今年通過同婚,可以預見的是自由之家明年的評比將會對台灣加分。與東亞的一些國家做比較,日本列等1,總分96;南韓列等2,總分83;新加坡列等4,總分51;香港列等3.5 ,總分59;印度列等2.5 ,總分75;菲律賓列等3.0 ,總分61;中國列等6.5 ,總分11;北韓列等7.0 ,總分3;紐西蘭列等1,總分98;澳洲列等1,總分98。 看到台灣有這麼好的成就不免令人覺得欣慰,也感到與有榮焉。只是,用美國的衰退為例來看,自由民主也不是那麼穩定而歷久不衰的。在感到為台灣欣喜之時,也應考慮到該如何維護這得來不易的果實。 記得當年還住在台灣時,身邊支持國民黨的有一大堆人。因為那時台灣的經濟有所成長,也有部分自由,夫復何求。但反對國民黨的朋友也相當多。但在這些反對國民黨的人中,許多人也覺得相當無奈,只有哀嘆的份。但台灣後來是走上自由民主的轉型了。那麼,這個推動自由民主的動力在那裏。 如果說那個時代的台灣人是愛好自由民主的話,那也未必如此。在過去的美國,要了解一個州或一個城市的自由度指標,首先你得看對女權的接受度。在女權一般都受到尊重而漸漸的平權後,再來則是看對同性戀權益的接受度。以台灣而言,整個社會的氛圍(尤其是中南部)在目前都還算是保守的,對同婚的議題而言,難以說得到大部分的同意。在同婚議題的接受度上固然有城鄉與世代的差異,但至少台灣是通過了同婚法案。另外在廢死議題上,社會反對的聲音還是很大。其他就有關接納更多移民與難民的議題來看,可能還有很長的一段路要走。 顯然對自由民主的追求,並非當年推動民主化的主要動力。主要動力無寧是源於對二二八事件的平反要求,與要求能夠公開的討論台灣前途的議題。也就是說,台灣民族獨立運動才是台灣民主化的主要動力,自由民主運動則為其次。但這兩者一直都是同攜共進的。台灣的民族民主運動是仍需要一直持續下去的。運動固然有退有進,但有一股暗流是以前沒有,而我們應該加以警覺與防範的。那就是網路謠言在中共官方的操控下的大量運作。 在過去十多年來,普亭下的俄國開始積極的運用網軍,去操控歐洲的民意與選舉,製造分裂。歐洲極右翼勢力的升起與得票數的增加,多少與俄國的網軍有關。2016年的美國大選,俄國的黑手更是處處皆是,多少造成了川普的當選。俄國的這種「成就」中國當然不會不注意到。近年來中國的網軍也於台灣肆無忌憚的大行其道。多年來一直對台灣軟硬兼施,無所不用其極的中國,於2018年的台灣選舉中打出了漂亮的成績單,特別是韓國瑜的當選(Specter of Meddling by Beijing Looms over Taiwan’s Elections, New York Times, 11/12/2018; Josh Rogin: China’s interference in the 2018 elections succeeded – in Taiwan.

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