New Mapping Platform Charts Construction in Cities

 Cache   
Seattle waterfront

A new platform allows users to see how construction and other work is affecting travel in cities.

It's called dotMaps, and as its name implies, it's essentially a map, albeit one with dots indicating a wide range of development work, including everything from minor streetlight repairs to the construction of a major high-rise development project. The aim of the platform is to help residents, visitors, business-owners and anyone else occupying urban spaces to stay informed about mobility around them. To this end, users can draw a boundary around an area displayed on dotMaps — maybe it’s their neighborhood or perhaps their workplace — and zero-in on what projects are happening, getting notifications outlining construction work as it stops, starts or otherwise changes mobility.

The project that would become dotMaps was started in 2017, intended in the early stages to be used internally by public servants and city officials in Seattle. Seattle created dotMaps with the help of SADA Systems, a technology consulting services company, with the goal of giving various city departments and agencies a better means of coordinating the flurry of communications related to building developments, as well as info about how those projects impact the public space. City officials estimate that they have saved some $18 million since introducing dotMaps through improved coordination across agencies. 

They have also spread it to other cities, giving it the potential to essentially be built anywhere.

“We can replicate [the platform] for any city to connect and collaborate across agencies, and provide visibility to city projects and street closures for their citizens,” said Narine Galstian, a spokesperson for SADA.

In fact, it was replicating the platform in other cities that eventually led it to the public-facing status it has now. See, by working with SADA and input from the Chicago Department of Transportation, Seattle officials were able to create a public-facing map, complete with customized email alerts about places that are most relevant to them, said Heather Marx, director of downtown mobility for the Seattle Department of Transportation. 

Seattle also shares the dotMaps data with common wayfinding apps like Waze and Google Maps, which Marx said enables users to quickly learn which roads on their routes may be blocked.

The construction mapping information could likely not have come at a better time. Seattle is awash in building projects — both real-estate and transportation related.

“There is something unusual happening every single day," Marx said. "So, the more people who know about this tool, the more people can engage with this tool, the better off all of us will be, because everyone will be making smarter choices. One of the things that I really like to say to folks is that, we’re building the infrastructure for the city that we’ve already become."

Earlier this year, transportation officials began shutting down the Alaskan Way Viaduct, an elevated two-level freeway along the Seattle waterfront, in preparations for demolition. The highway, built in the 1950s, has long been in need of replacement. In January, the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) closed the structure, which averaged nearly 80,000 cars every weekday, for three weeks.

“The closure was difficult from a transportation coordination standpoint. But what is really transformational is those 90,000 people who used to use the Viaduct, every single day to get to where they’re going, they have to do something else now,” said Marx. “We want to make sure that everybody has as much information as we can provide to them about how to get from here to there because it’s changing all the time.”

And Seattle is not alone in this. In April, collaborating city Chicago released its own ChiStreetWork site, which is developed by SADA and also provides construction and street repair information for the public, similar to dotMaps. 

“Now the public can look to it if there's work in the public right of way on their block — they can find if there's a permit issued and they can actually pull up the permit online to see who obtained the permit,” explained Michael Claffey, director of public affairs at the Chicago Department of Transportation. “They could also find out if the work is happening without a permit.”

Voters Cast Ballots On Affirmative Action, Sanctuary Cities, In Off-Year Elections

 Cache   

Election Night 2019 is in the books. And while much of the focus is on the winning candidates in Kentucky, Mississippi and Virginia and what that might mean for the 2020 presidential election, millions of voters also decided on a range of ballot measures. Here's a short list of results from around the U.S.

Tucson, Ariz.

Proposition 205: Making Tucson a Sanctuary City fails

While Arizona remains a conservative-leaning state, Democrats control the state's second largest city. Six years after the City Council designated Tucson an "immigrant welcoming city," some sought to push that mandate even further by allowing residents to decide on whether it should become a "sanctuary city."

Given the chance on Tuesday, Tucson residents roundly rejected the measure, with initial results showing more than 70% of voters disapproving. If approved, Prop 205 would have put in place more restrictions on how law enforcement officials there impose immigration laws.

As member station Arizona Public Media reports, if Proposition 205 had been OK'd, "it would likely have faced legal challenges based on potential conflicts with SB 1070."

That's the controversial Arizona law that allows law enforcement officials to check immigration documents if they suspect someone is in the country illegally.

Even Tucson's newly elected Democratic mayor, Regina Romero opposed the measure, according to Arizona Public Media. Romero made history Tuesday by becoming the first Latina and first woman to win that post — even got a shout out by Democratic presidential candidate and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

Colorado

Proposition CC Fails. Proposition DD too close to call

Both these propositions have to do with taxes. Proposition CC would allow the state to take money intended for tax refunds and put it toward education and transportation costs. Proposition DD sought to legalize sports gambling and then use the tax dollars casinos would pay to the state to fund the Colorado Water Plan, a range of projects related to conservation and the environment.

As Colorado Public Radio explains, Proposition CC "would have allowed the state to keep money that would normally be returned to taxpayers because it exceeds revenue caps set in the Taxpayer's Bill of Rights." However, voters rejected the measure, according to initial returns tallied by The Associated Press.

Backers of Proposition CC had pledged that future tax refunds from the state "would have gone to transportation, K-12 and higher education," as the member station reported.

Proposition DD would legalize sports betting and impose a 10% tax on a gambling establishment's house winnings. As of Wednesday afternoon, the margin between those for and against the measure was separated by about 1 percentage point, with a slight edge in favor.

Jersey City, N.J.

Question 1 [restrictions for short-term rental properties] passes

In what was called "the most expensive municipal referendum" in New Jersey history, Jersey City residents overwhelmingly approved increasing regulations on short-term rentals. The move was widely seen as a blow to Airbnb and VRBO.

Voters said "yes" to limits on what units and properties are eligible for the part-time rentals, as well as capping the number of nights a property can be used as a rental at 60 per year, among other provisions.

According to NJ.com, Airbnb spent more than $3 million to defeat the measure, but the company failed to make much of an impact, as more than 69% of voters said "yes" to Question 1.

San Francisco

Proposition C [on ban of e-cigarettes sales] is rejected

In June, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a ban on the sale and distribution of e-cigarettes in the city until the Food and Drug Administration completes a product safety review. Proposition C, which was supported by e-cigarette maker Juul Labs, sought to overturn the board's decision before the ban goes into effect at the start of the new year.

The ballot measure failed.

As member station KQED reports, "voters overwhelmingly rejected the referendum, with the 'no' side pulling into a strong position just after polls closed Tuesday night and only strengthening its margin of victory as the evening progressed."

The Board of Supervisors' ban prohibits the sale of e-cigarettes in brick and mortar stores, and also bars vaping devices bought online from being delivered to addresses in San Francisco. KQED adds that Juul spent more than $18 million to defeat this ban.

Texas

Proposition 4 [state income tax ban] passes

Residents of Texas don't pay state income tax. On Tuesday night, Texans made sure it stays that way by approving a measure that make it even more difficult to impose such a tax.

As the Dallas Morning News reports, Texas typically promotes the lack of a state income tax as "a conservative bona fide and part of a key attraction for businesses."

With the passage of Proposition 4, the newspaper notes, "two-thirds of the Texas House and Senate will be required to vote to repeal the amendment."

If that weren't enough, lawmakers now also have to schedule a statewide election to implement any state income tax.

Washington state

Referendum 88 [restricting affirmative action] too close to call

People in Washington state appear poised to send a message to lawmakers: Race, sex and ethnicity should not be factors when selecting a qualified applicant.

Voters banned affirmative action in 1998. Earlier this year, however, lawmakers passed a measure called Initiative 1000 that essentially reimposed affirmative action and allowed the state to weigh certain characteristics when making considerations on employment, contracting and acceptance in schools.

Referendum 88 put I-1000 to a vote — enough "no" votes would keep the initiative from going into effect. As of Wednesday afternoon, the referendum was failing by a narrow margin. Assistant Secretary of State Mark Neary says Washington state is still counting roughly 365,000 mail-in ballots.

As Seattle's KUOW notes:

"After majority Democrats passed [I-1000] in the final hours of the Legislative session this April, opponents gathered enough signatures over the summer to put the new law to a public vote.

"The opposition effort was led by a group of Asian Americans who said they feared their children would be passed over for university admissions in favor of other racial minorities. ...

"A mostly African American coalition delivered Initiative 1000 to the Legislature in January. This fall, a diverse coalition of business, labor and advocacy organizations, known as the Washington Fairness coalition, campaigned to protect the law from repeal."

The affirmative action vote more than 20 years ago was "emotional and highly charged," The Seattle Times notes, adding that Tuesday's vote in essence served as a new "barometer for feelings about the state of equity and discrimination."

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.

Also from Sony, look for White Boy Rick on Blu-ray and DVD on 12/25, with the Digital release expected on 12/11.

In other release news, HBO has set The Deuce: Season Two for Blu-ray and DVD release on 2/5/19.

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.

That’s all for now, except to send out a nod of thanks in honor of all you veterans out there.

Ex-Twitter Employees Charged in Saudi Government Spy Plot

 Cache   

Two former Twitter employees and a Saudi national were charged by the U.S. with helping the Saudi government spy on dissidents who used the social network.

“Saudi agents mined Twitter’s internal systems for personal information about known Saudi critics and thousands of other Twitter users,” U.S. Attorney David Anderson in San Francisco said Wednesday in a statement announcing the criminal complaint.

Twitter said it’s committed to protecting those who use its service and applauded the Justice Department’s actions.

The two former Twitter employees are Ali Alzabarah, 35, of Saudi Arabia, and Ahmad Abouammo, 41, of Seattle. According to the complaint, they were recruited by a third Saudi, Ahmed Almutairi, 30, to “use their employee credentials to gain access without authorization to certain nonpublic information about the individuals behind certain Twitter accounts.”

All three are charged with acting as illegal agents of a foreign government. In addition, Abouammo is charged with destroying, altering, or falsifying records in a federal investigation.

“We recognize the lengths bad actors will go to try and undermine our service,” Twitter said in a statement. “Our company limits access to sensitive account information to a limited group of trained and vetted employees. We understand the incredible risks faced by many who use Twitter to share their perspectives with the world and to hold those in power accountable. We have tools in place to protect their privacy and their ability to do their vital work.”

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.

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

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

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

The subsequent years have hardened Seefeel’s sound, as evidenced by their 2008 self-titled album. The drum tracks are rigid and spare, and the music surrounding them is glitchy and agitated. It’s a reflection, perhaps, of our anxious modern age, but one that still slots in well with the evolution of their aesthetic as individuals and as a group.

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

Mikal Cronin, Shannon Lay
Mikal Cronin possess the uncanny knack for penning effortless-sounding pop gems. On his fourth record, Seeker, he mines his self-introspection and the comeback from a bad case of writer’s block with convincing aplomb, conjuring Tom Petty melodies on the single “Show Me” with help from Ty Segall’s Freedom Band (of which he is a card-carrying member). There’s a lot of inferno-inspired writing coming out of California following last year’s devastating wildfires, and Seeker is no different, exploring ideas of rebirth from destruction. Cronin seems a gentle soul armed with the ability to pull wisdom from a chaotic world. (Fri Nov 8, 9 pm, Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi, $15-17) RYAN J. PRADO

Much has happened in Forster’s life since then, including a regular gig as a music critic, an impassioned memoir about his work with McLennan, and three fantastic solo albums. His most recent, Inferno, finds Forster in peak form, with a folk-pop backing band, ambling through his back pages and unblinkingly facing his waning years with grace.

The concert will benefit Do Good Multnomah, a local nonprofit working to assist veterans with housing by way of “relationship-building, one-on-one engagement, supportive services, and direct community participation.” Both bands are staples of Portland’s psych-oriented roots-rock scene and have transcended the city’s confines with their last several albums.

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

For his new EP, Invisible, Little traveled to Paris’ famed Studios Ferber, and the six new songs show the multi-instrumentalist and singer still continuing to develop and experiment with his craft. Tonight’s show at the Old Church isn’t to be missed; this preacher’s son is sure to give a sanctified and transcendent performance.

Her voice has matured as well, with a full, husky, and soulful sound that drops into radio-ready dance club jams with little effort. But there’s depth in her lyrics as well, as exemplified by songs from her sophomore album Aurora, which showcase her deep moods about problematic relationships (“Burning Bridges”), slut-shaming (“S.L.U.T.”), and ultimately self-love (“Repercussions”). If you’re a complicated person with complicated feelings, Miller is on your team, stylishly and confidently pushing all the right emotional buttons.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

SUN NOV 17

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

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

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

TUES NOV 19

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

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

WED NOV 20

Julia Jacklin, Christian Lee Hutson
Anyone present at either of Julia Jacklin’s Pickathon performances this past summer (but especially her Treeline Stage set) are keenly aware of the Australian artist’s hypnotic stranglehold on timeless folk songwriting. Her 2019 sophomore record, Crushing, catapulted her into the echelon of Aussies/Kiwis apparently plotting to take over the singer/songwriter world (along with Courtney Barnett, Aldous Harding, and Stella Donnelly, to name a few). “Crushing” is a great descriptor for Jacklin’s easy-breezy pop tunes, too, like the driving, heavy-lidded “Head Alone” or the more raucous “Pressure to Party.” Give her a great welcome back to Oregon tonight in the cozy Aladdin. (Wed Nov 20, 8 pm, Aladdin Theater, 3017 SE Milwaukie, all ages, $18-22) RYAN J PRADO

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

{{image:8}}

CRITIC’S PICK: Brittany Howard
Brittany Howard has more than proven herself as a leader in the retro-soul movement. After two critically acclaimed albums with roots-rock band Alabama Shakes (2012’s Boys & Girls and 2015’s Grammy-winning Sound & Color), singer/songwriter Brittany Howard dropped her solo studio debut Jaime in September. On this new album, Howard has full artistic control and pushes the envelope of soul music with an authentic, modern angle that doesn’t shy away from the vulnerable or political. The stunning record is a testament to Howard’s expert vocal control, and its songs reveal that she’s done her fair share of soul-searching—where do I even start? Lead single “History Repeats” was already exceptional, but the vintage-sounding “Stay High” has become one of my favorite (and most applicable) love songs of 2019. (Howard also recently released a gorgeous video of her performing a stripped-down, acoustic version of the song in a rural New Mexico setting, and it’s a master class in musicianship.) Other highlights include... the entire fucking thing, but especially “He Loves Me,” “Goat Head,” the weary “13th Century Metal,” and “Georgia.” As Howard explained during her recent performance on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series, “Georgia” was written from “the perspective of being a little young Black gay girl having a crush on an older Black girl, and not knowing how to tell her, or what to say or how I was feeling.” The song starts with a sweetly sung chorus that repeats “I just want Georgia to notice me,” and then Howard opens each verse as if she’s addressing a letter to the titular character, crooning the familiar melody of “Georgia on My Mind” for just a moment. Howard’s careful and tender vocalizations beautifully express her feelings of uncertainty during the song’s climax: (“Is it unnatural?/Georgia, is it cool?/I wanna tell you that I love you”); but it’s the exquisite, mounting sound of organ keys and a swelling guitar solo that make the love confession song a full-blown masterpiece. From watching all the videos of her recent live sessions, it’s hard to determine whether Howard and her band sounds better live or recorded, but her upcoming gig at the Roseland will give Portlanders a chance to decide for themselves. (Wed Nov 20, 8 pm, Roseland Theater, 8 NW 6th, all ages, $54.50-69.50, w/Georgia Anne Muldrow) JENNI MOORE

The Latest in Portland Hip-Hop: Sir Nai’s Geek Tape, Wynne’s “Ego Check,” the Thesis, and More!

 Cache   
The latest in Portland hip-hop. by Jenni Moore

As I write this column, I’m still coming down from the for-once-not-weed-induced high of seeing Dodgr sell out an unrecognizable Roseland Theater last Saturday. With bill support from regional favorites Maarquii and Blimes & Gab, it was inspiring to see Dodgr set a glimmering precedent for other artists in the city who have hopes of doing the same. Now that we’ve bid Dodgr a fond farewell (for now), let’s dive into what else is new in the scene.

“Ego Check,” Wynne feat. JID 

On October 12, Lake Oswego’s Wynne released “Ego Check,” featuring Dreamville rapper JID, the latest track from Wynne’s forthcoming debut mixtape If I May... (out October 25). And if I may, I’d like to deem this song my new favorite from the blonde-haired MC. The song illustrates the experience of getting (ego) checked before entering a venue, with both rappers confidently talking their shit about where they’re at in their respective careers. Over a simple beat that brings back the classic, vinyl-scratch sound, Wynne delivers some of her best bars in the first verse, opening it up with “I don’t look backsothey ho assnever see my face, okay/Being passive-aggressiveis in my DNA, okay.” Wynne’s sung chorus (“You can’t even get past the fucking bouncer/Who do you know here?”) glides easily above the beat, and then JID’s featured verse is pure fire. One of the most ear-catching lines is when he says, “Tell me what the fuck you niggas talm’bout/I’m tired, might put a Tommy gun in Tomi Lahren’s mouth.” [AIRHORNS] “Ego Check” also includes a short cameo from DJ O.G. ONE, who closes out the song with a nod to Portland: “It’s official, you know what time it is/Rose City.” Wynne also recently revealed the track list and credits for her mixtape, and now I’m dying to hear the rest of it.


Portlandsterdam, Swiggle Mandela

Also on October 25, Portland rapper Swiggle Mandela is dropping Portlandsterdam, an absolute monster of an album (mixtape?)  with 29 tracks. Why so many songs? You might ask. Well, the project is meant to celebrate Swiggle Mandela’s 29 years of life. Opening track “Lit Tonight,” includes a verse from Seattle’s Raz Simone—the only listed feature on the project. There’s also Swiggle’s twerkable lead single “Adobo,” alt-weekly diss track “Dear Willamette Week,” as well as “Dear White Portland” and much, much more. Also on the day of the album’s release, Swiggle Mandela is throwing a release party at Bit House Saloon hosted by Shrista Tyree, with—I kid you not—19 rappers on the bill. (Fri Oct 25, 9 pm, Bit House Saloon, 727 SE Grand, $10-20)


Geek, Sir Nai

ICYMI back in August, Portland-based producer Sir Nai dropped a very cool tape of instrumentals called Geek, following it up with a beat set at the Thesis.  “I called this project Geek simply because I’m called one a lot, usually for the collection of things I own,” Sir Nai says in an email. With just five tracks clocking at under than 12 minutes, Sir Nai says there are no samples on the project; all are original, personal arrangements “meant to be chill, easy and bright.” This tape would work really well on one of those lo-fi YouTube playlists by ChilledCow that are great aids for chill/relax/study time. Now, manifest!


Ladies First! Hip-Hop/Soul Showcase: Karma Rivera, Amenta Abioto, Lisa Vazquez, KayelaJ

Set in the Jack London’s cozy basement bar, the first installment of the Ladies First series from Moss Media brings together some of the town’s stalwart music acts. From rapper/radio personality KayelaJ to MC/loop-pedal maestro Lisa Vazquez to a high-energy performance from Karma Rivera, there’s lots to see here. But perhaps the most moving part of the evening will be a partially improvised set from soul singer/multi-instrumentalist Amenta Abioto, who also uses looping techniques to create her music, weaving vocal sounds together with kalimba, synths, drum machine, and guitar. Originally from Nashville but residing in Portland, Abioto’s soothing Southern accent and joyful experimentalism are a breath of fresh air. (Fri Oct 25, 9:30 pm, Jack London Revue, 529 SW 4th, $12-15) 


The Thesis: [E]mpress, Harvee Bird, KisHerGoodnight, Verbz

The November 2019 installment of Portland’s most poppin’ hip-hop showcase—which, full disclosure, I help out with—is gearing up to be a fun, rock-tinged time. This month’s headliner is [E]mpress, an MC who makes an original blend of hip-hop with EDM and classic rock influences. In early 2019, the young rapper (finally) made her first live appearance at the Thesis, having been put on ice until she turned of age. Her headlining show should mark the beginning of a new era for the artist. The all-Portland lineup will also showcase the similar vibes of Harvee Bird and KisHerGoodnight. (Thurs Nov 7, 9 pm, Kelly’s Olympian, 426 SW Washington, $10)

Working alongside a partner or spouse is challenging in any scenario, let alone the service industry. Some couples, however, are lucky enough to survive — and even thrive. Seattle’s Anu Apte and Chris Elford are one such duo. The husband-and-wife team co-owns bars No Anchor, Navy Strength, Vinnie’s Raw Bar, and Bar Bazaar. Anu owns Rob Roy as well. Together, they are becoming synonymous with Seattle’s growing drinks scene.

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.

A New Parks Policy Threatens to Hurt Portland’s Poorest Residents

 Cache   
by Alex Zielinski

It’s just after 1 pm on a bright, cold Wednesday at Sunnyside Park, and several people in knit caps and down jackets carry pots of coffee and cream of broccoli soup to a picnic table. For dozens of houseless Portlanders who live near the Southeast Portland park, this is the start of the best part of their day: A free, warm lunch with friends after a long night outside.

“This is something I definitely look forward to,” says Jeff Callicrate, taking a slow sip of coffee and turning his back to the biting October wind. “It’s how I stay connected with people. It’s how I stay positive.”

He waves at a bundled couple as they approach the table, where volunteers with the homeless advocacy group Portland Assembly unpack homemade cookies and sandwiches. Nearby, several men chat about their mornings over cups of steaming soup.

“Last night was bitter cold,” Callicrate says. “This makes those nights more bearable.”

Scenes like this one are happening elsewhere across the city, too. Later in the afternoon, more than a hundred people will gather downtown in Director Park for another free meal, this time provided by the group Free Hot Soup. Around the same time, volunteers with Food Not Bombs will dish out free vegan dinners in East Portland’s Montavilla Park, and the next day, volunteers with yet another organization, Night Strike, will meet at Tom McCall Waterfront Park to serve dinner to anyone in need.

In Portland, public parks have become go-to gathering spots for organizations that offer free meals to the city’s poor communities. But the creation of a new park permit that will be required for any group hosting these “social service” gatherings has threatened to limit the ability of these scrappy, volunteer-led organizations to use public spaces to share food with Portlanders in need.

City leaders say the change is meant to help coordinate social services, while still allowing equal access to public parks for all Portlanders, regardless of economic status. But in a city in the throes of a housing crisis—and with diminishing access to affordable food and health care—restricting free services for those in poverty could exacerbate Portland’s inequity issues.

The new Portland Parks and Recreation (PPR) permit requires that any group that uses public parks to host events that support “improved health, safety, and quality of life” must purchase event liability insurance and pay a $137.75 application fee for the permit. (If the group applies for a permit at least 30 days before its planned event, that application fee will be waived.) The permit also restricts the number of social service gatherings in parks, with each Portland park only being allowed to host one per week.

Previously, social service events have been required to apply for a generic event permit from PPR, but that rule was only sporadically enforced. Organizations that serve meals on multiple days in a row at the same parks, like Portland Assembly and Free Hot Soup, say that despite not having permits, they’ve always felt supported, not policed, by Parks staff. At least, they say, until 2018.

According to Portland City Commissioner Amanda Fritz, who served as the Parks Commissioner from 2013 to 2018, the permit is the result of a single conflict at one park. When the city created Director Park in 2009, the public plaza at SW 9th and Park was expected to be financially self-sufficient. The city hoped the permit fees associated with renting the space for private events would cover the general maintenance costs.

Then Free Hot Soup began using the centrally located plaza to serve meals every weekday evening. The group didn’t have a permit.

Fritz says Free Hot Soup’s nightly presence in the small park kept other groups from getting a permit to rent out the space, with those groups also citing fears that Free Hot Soup’s popular gathering would crowd out their private events. Without any revenue coming in from Free Hot Soup, this created a problem.

“Parks depend on revenue for a certain amount of its budget,” says Fritz. “That’s the reality.”

Fritz says Free Hot Soup’s gatherings, which often attracted nearly 200 guests nightly, sometimes left Director Park in disarray, leaving unexpected work for park staff the following morning. Park rangers had also grown tired of having to intervene when groups that had obtained permits for the plaza clashed with Free Hot Soup volunteers about who could use the space.

In August 2018, Fritz was in the process of helping Free Hot Soup find a more permanent, less budget-draining location when Mayor Ted Wheeler decided to redistribute city bureaus among city commissioners. Suddenly, the Parks bureau became Commissioner Nick Fish’s responsibility. Fritz says she briefed Fish on the Free Hot Soup quandary, but notes that at the time, Fish was rightly preoccupied with addressing the PPR’s broader budget shortfalls.

{{image:1}}

Free Hot Soup didn’t hear anything from the Parks bureau for months and continued serving meals in Director Park. Then, in October 2019, the Parks bureau unveiled the social service permit as a citywide solution to the dust-up at Director Park. Unlike Fritz, Fish says the decision had nothing to do with finances.

“Revenue is not the driver here,” says Fish. “The goal was always to reduce barriers to providing these kinds of services, balanced against the need for our parks to be available for all users.”

While he’s grateful that groups like Free Hot Soup are serving “a real need,” Fish says he wants to ensure that all Portlanders have equal access to public parks. That means every group that uses a park needs to follow the same rules.

“It is not an unhealthy thing to require some mutual accountability,” says Fish.

“We’re always trying to improve the way Parks serve the public,” says Todd Lofgren, the deputy director of PPR. Lofgren adds that the new permits will help staff to both better prepare for planned events and refer those needing free meals to planned gatherings at specific parks.

The new rules, and the costs that come with them, won’t have the same effect on every social service provider. Groups that already serve people in parks only once a week, as well as groups that have the money to buy insurance, don’t expect to be impacted by the permit requirements.

“As a larger organization, this change won’t affect us,” says Lesley Snider, founder of Night Strike, a nonprofit that, since 2012, has had a permit to run its weekly program in Waterfront Park. “But it could have a big impact on the smaller groups who aren’t insured.”

If the city begins enforcing the new policy, groups that operate on shoestring budgets—like Free Hot Soup, Portland Assembly, and others—say they’ll be forced to shut down, cutting off a critical service to poor people living in Portland.

“This is a revenue problem that’s the city’s own doing,” says Sara Rudolph, a volunteer with Portland Assembly. “And the city’s poorest populations have been caught in the crossfire.”

Fish says he would never approve a policy that targeted a vulnerable group, and he’s dismissed concerns about the new permit by offering to help raise funds to cover insurance costs. As for the groups that are built on a model of serving a daily meal at a consistent location, Fish suggests they simply relocate to a different park every day of the week. (As long as those other parks don’t have their own social service gatherings scheduled that week.)

Volunteers familiar with the homeless community say that proposal could do more harm than good.

“Our folks are hyperlocal,” says John Mayer, a coordinator with Beacon PDX, another group that serves lunch at Sunnyside Park. “To expect them to hop around and not have a solid place to meet, the city is promoting instability.”


“If you have money in this city, we have a lot of spaces where you can freely exist. But if you don’t have a car or a house, there are very few places where you can exist. When we further limit those spaces, we’re making a city that is skewing towards wealth.” -Kaia Sand, director of Street Roots


A commitment to consistency is reflected in Mayer’s work. He previously helped run a weekly dinner program in the basement of the United Methodist Church across the street from Sunnyside Park. That Wednesday gathering, “Hard Times Dinner,” abruptly ended its 38-year run in September after receiving an eviction notice from the church’s new owner.

Mayer and other Hard Times volunteers formed Beacon PDX as a way to continue serving the Southeast homeless community, partnering with Portland Assembly to make free lunch a weekday staple at Sunnyside Park.

“So much about their lives is unpredictable,” Mayer says of those who benefit from the service. “Giving this community something stable to depend on is the least we can do.”

David C., a regular at the Sunnyside lunches and one of the many Portlanders who lives in a tent, says the gatherings allow him to stay in touch with friends. He also appreciates the relatively rare opportunity to be taken care of. “It’s the people that make this,” he says. “The people who take time out of their day to bring us food and show us they care. That means a lot.”

For some, these daily gatherings are also critical for survival. Craig Bordelon, who lives in a car in Southeast Portland, struggles to live off his monthly Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) stipend of $200—especially since he doesn’t have a way to cook food. Warm meals in public parks have become an essential part of his diet. “I’d probably get sick or starve without them,” Bordelon says.

Mayer expects the new permit was partially inspired by complaints from homeowners and business leaders who don’t want to see homeless people in nearby parks. He says his group is regularly harassed by Sunnyside Park neighbors.

By instituting the new permit policies, Mayer says, “The city is signaling to the public that those who own a home are worth more than people without.”

Kaia Sand, director of the street newspaper and homeless advocacy group Street Roots, echoes Mayer’s concerns. She says she’s wary of any restrictions to public space that appear to fall along class lines.

“If you have money in this city, we have a lot of spaces where you can freely exist,” says Sand. “But if you don’t have a car or a house, there are very few places where you can exist. When we further limit those spaces, we’re making a city that is skewing towards wealth.”

Portland Assembly’s Rudolph says groups like hers fill a need that isn’t being met by city and county services. She believes if low-income Portlanders had more access to affordable housing—where they could prepare and cook their own food and store perishable items—groups like hers wouldn’t have to use public spaces to feed others.

We go to where the people are,” says Rudolph. “And right now, that’s outside. We are fighting so hard to do a little to help the city’s poorest people, but [the city] keeps making it more difficult.”

Troy Howard, a volunteer with Free Hot Soup, says his group chose to hold its nightly events in Director Park—a bustling plaza in an upscale part of downtown Portland—to draw the public’s attention to the above-average levels of food insecurity in Multnomah County.

“A big part of our location is to create a spectacle,” says Howard. “To show as many people as possible that others living in this city are food insecure.”

Howard says the new permit program shows that City Hall is out of touch with the needs of Portland’s low-income and homeless residents. He says the program also illustrates the pitfalls of a city government where major bureaus are led by rotating politicians, who may or may not be well-versed in the services their bureaus are expected to provide.


“I will welcome being arrested for feeding people in need, if it comes to it. We’re reasonable people and we’re doing reasonable work.” -John Mayer, volunteer with Beacon PDX


“It’s super frustrating,” says Howard, pointing to the clunky handoff of PPR between Fritz and Fish. “We have been very consistent and reliable from the start. It’s [the city] that has not been consistent, and we’re going to be the ones that pay for it.”

But the smaller social services groups—the ones that are the most threatened by the new regulations—aren’t shutting down without a fight. Howard, Rudolph, and Mayer all say they’d risk arrest to continue serving meals to Portlanders.

“I will welcome being arrested for feeding people in need, if it comes to it,” says Mayer. “We’re reasonable people and we’re doing reasonable work.”

And if the city plans on strictly enforcing the permit rules, a number of the groups say they’re prepared to sue. They wouldn’t be the first social services organizations to challenge a regional government over these types of restrictions. Volunteers in major cities like St. Louis, Houston, Philadelphia, and Orlando have all filed costly lawsuits against their city governments for introducing policies that place limitations on feeding the homeless in public. In 2018, Florida’s 11th US Circuit Court of Appeals decided that sharing food with people in need is a protected form of political expression, ruling that it was unconstitutional for the City of Fort Lauderdale to force its local Food Not Bombs group to obtain a permit to serve food in public parks.

Oregon’s 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which is generally considered more progressive than Florida’s 11th Circuit, has yet to hear a similar case.

Tristia Bauman, an attorney with the National Law Center on Homelessness and Poverty, says what’s happening in Portland is similar to the Fort Lauderdale case.

“When we know people need hot food and the city has provided no alternatives, and we know people will continue to break rules to feed the public—that’s a political statement,” Bauman says. “Any restriction of that could end in a legal challenge.”

While PPR says it will waive the permit application fee for social service groups, Bauman says the restrictions that accompany that policy—like only waiving the fee if groups apply a month in advance and can afford to purchase insurance—could also be interpreted as restricting free speech.

“Portland is opening the door to legal challenges. Why?” asks Bauman. “If the city wants to end food sharing in parks... instead of costly litigation, it could invest in more shelter spaces or creating its own food-sharing program.”

Fish says he’s looked into city programs in cities like Seattle that provide indoor kitchen and dining spaces that can be used by social services groups to serve the public. He’s also spoken with a downtown church that’s interested in providing space for Free Hot Soup. But before looking for permanent solutions, Fish says the bureau will prioritize educating groups about the new permits and helping them to comply with the new restrictions.

Back at Sunnyside Park, the conversation has turned to the autumn weather. A group of men talk about finding new sleeping bags and blankets that would make nights spent outside a little more tolerable.

“It’s getting colder and darker,” says David C., holding his cup of soup. “That’s another reason why these warm meals are so important. If the city is planning on taking this away, it’s going to be a long winter.”

Savage Love: Feminist Mom Disapproves of Son's Choice of Sex Toy

 Cache   
by Dan Savage
SAVAGE-Letter-of-the-Day-STAMP-2019.jpg
I need your help. I have entered into a period of my life where I am devoting all my mental resources toward my academics—grad school—and am not interested in dating. Thus, I bought a Real Doll so that I may enjoy fantastic masturbation during this loveless period. Unfortunately, while my parents were visiting, my mom discovered it and she reacted very, very badly. You see, my dear mother is a feminist and she is very upset by the doll and believes that it is an indication that I have lost all respect for women. I do not feel this is true. I view myself as a feminist, and I realize this society sexually objectifies women. But I also believe that I can masturbate with a rubber woman and have wild fantasies and then come back to reality and respect everyone—men, women, others. My mother, however, is extremely upset, and we haven't been able to have a civil conversation since. I am hoping you can possibly give me some perspective.


Dolled Up

My perspective: Your masturbatory routines—including your masturbatory aids/aides—are none of your mother's fucking business. And if your mother wants to be shocked by something, DU, it ought to be that her son-the-grad- student had $5K to plunk down on a sex toy.


Your options at this stage are pretty limited. You can apologize to your mother and tell her what she wants to hear ("You're right, Mom, I'm making an appointment with a therapist and donating my Real Doll to sex-starved grad students in Africa..."). Or you can tell your mother to fuck off and butt out ("It's my dick, Mom, and I'll stick it in whatever I want. You remember that 'my body, my choice' stuff, right?").


That said, DU, your claim that you bought a Real Doll so you could "enjoy fantastic masturbation during this loveless period" doesn't quite pass the smell-of-day-old-spunk-moldering-in-the-lifeless-orifice-of-a-silicone-dummy test. Most guys manage to tough out their loveless periods with the help of the porn industry and their own right hands. And most guys who opt for insanely expensive, life-size, hard-to-hide sex dolls do have issues with women—most are plagued by feelings of inadequacy, not superiority—so you may want to entertain the possibility that your mother might be right.


But even if you do have issues with women—still an if—they're still none of your mother's fucking business.

Hit the links below and load your plate accordingly


Jump to: Friday | Saturday | Sunday

Friday, Nov 8

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

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

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

Lit Crawl Portland
A boozy jaunt to literary parties all throughout downtown's bars and other nontraditional venues for readings, including stops at the Dorsa Brevia, Kickstand Comedy, Oregon Humanities, Literary Arts, The Big Legrowlski, Valentine's, and more! Click here for a complete schedule and list of participating venues. (Fri Nov 8, 6 pm, Various Locations, free)

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

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

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

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

Saturday, Nov 9

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

The Pacific Crest Comedy Fest
Portland’s comedy scene is bonkers (bonkers GOOD) which is why the addition of a brand-new comedy festival that features the greatest comedians from around town and across the nation is very welcome indeed! It’s the Pacific Crest Comedy Fest, featuring Steph Tolev and Maggie Maye; hometown gals made good Caitlin Weierhauser, Bri Pruett, and Amy Miller; local heavy hitters Nariko Ott, Amanda Arnold, Shain Brenden, Kate Murphy, Amanda Arnold; and many more! But that ain’t all: Expect awesome podcasts and regular shows like Earthquake Hurricane, Minority Retort, Speechless, the return of Lez Stand Up, pant, pant, pant… TOO MANY TO MENTION! Good god, that’s a lot of laughs in a short amount of time. (Sat-Sun Nov 9-10, Siren Theater) WM. STEVEN HUMPHREY

Yung Bae, Birocratic
Portland producer Yung Bae brings an array of future funk and disco jams out to Holocene for a two-night hometown stand. (Sat-Sun Nov 9-10, 9 pm, Holocene, $13-17)

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

Dune Rats
Brisbane-based garage punk trio Dune Rats comes back to Portland for a night of boisterousness finely honed down under. (Sat Nov 9, 9 pm, Bunk Bar, $15)

The I, Anonymous Show
Fuck off, Avengers! When it comes to once-in-a-lifetime superhero team-ups, NOBODY can compete with the lineup of comics that are assembling for the next installment of the Mercury’s beloved I, Anonymous Show! This time around—and in conjunction with the Pacific Crest Comedy Fest—our live show will feature host Kate Murphy, former host Bri Pruett, and former host Caitlin Weierhauser! AND they’re bringing along the hilarious Steven Wilber for the ride! In other words? If you want top-notch comics reading and reflecting on some of the Mercury’s funniest, weirdest, creepiest, and (very occasionally) sexiest submissions to our popular I, Anonymous column, you can’t do any better. And who knows, maybe Hawkeye will show up too. Not like he’s got anything better to do. (Sat Nov 9, 6 pm, Siren Theater, $10) ERIK HENRIKSEN

Max Bemis, Perma, Museum Mouth
Say Anything frontman Max Bemis steps out for a solo show at the Hawthorne Theatre, with Perma and Museum Mouth on-hand to round out the all-ages bill. (Sat Nov 9, 8 pm, Hawthorne Theatre, $19-23, all ages)

Del McCoury Band, The Jacob Joliff Band
Del McCoury's band is a well-oiled machine of precisely plucked strings and high lonesome vocals that should sound positively divine bouncing around the Aladdin Theater tonight. (Sat Nov 9, 8 pm, Aladdin Theater, $42.50-45, all ages) BEN SALMON

Matt Andersen, Gaby Moreno, Liz Vice
The Canadian guitarist and singer/songwriter out of New Brunswick brings his brand of blues through Portland as part of the "Roots Rising" Tour, with Guatemala-hailing folk and blues artist Gaby Moreno and Portland gospel and R&B singer/songwriter Liz Vice rounding out the bill.

Do you need love, or do you need carbs? Taylor Tomlinson says they’re basically interchangeable and anyone who’s ever had baked macaroni and cheese will confirm: carbs are flat-out better. But would we have put this hilarious truth together before Tomlinson swept in like a wildly funny eagle with that gag clenched in her razor-sharp talons? Things I have compared Tomlinson to: a joke-firing machine gun and a powerful eagle. Needless to say, I’m hella excited to hear this up and coming comedian tape her next Netflix special in OUR CITY. Prepare to hear all her best material because THIS is going to be on the internet! (Sun Nov 10, 5:30 pm & 8 pm, Aladdin Theater, $20) SUZETTE SMITH

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

No. 9 Utah keeps rolling, rallies past Washington 33-28

 Cache   

SEATTLE (AP) — The past month looked, and felt, so easy for No. 9 Utah. One blowout after another. No tests for the Utes to answer.

They knew traveling to Washington would be different, and they were right. The Utes were challenged; falling behind early and rallying late, and in doing so solidified their spot in the College Football Playoff conversation.

Tyler Huntley threw for one touchdown and ran for another, Jaylon Johnson returned an interception 39 yards for a score, and No. 9 Utah overcame an 11-point first-half deficit to beat Washington 33-28. The Utes did their part in keeping pace in the Pac-12 South race and bolstered their CFP resume with a road win over a talented opponent in a place where it's never come easy for Utah.

"It says a lot. We've had a lot of games, the last three games or whatever it's been by putting up 40 points and our defense looking impeccable," Utah running back Zack Moss said. "When we can do this and come on the road and win a game like this and doing it the way we did, that's what championship teams do and that's what we've been missing the last couple of years."

The Utes (8-1, 5-1 Pac-12) picked up just their second all-time win over the Huskies — oddly enough both coming in Seattle — leaning on a defense that forced Washington quarterback Jacob Eason into three turnovers and got just enough offense from Huntley and friends to rally from an early 14-3 hole.

Huntley hit Moss on a 9-yard TD late in the first half and added a 1-yard touchdown run early in the fourth quarter to give Utah its first lead, 26-21. Huntley's TD run capped a drive that featured a key third-and-12 conversion where Huntley was able to hit Jaylen Dixon for a 41-yard completion.

That was the appetizer before Huntley's brilliant fourth quarter. Huntley added a pair of key third-down conversions on Utah's...


          

Washington's Quade Green eligible after NCAA grants waiver

 Cache   

SEATTLE (AP) — Washington guard Quade Green will be eligible immediately after his waiver was granted by the NCAA.

Green, who started his career at Kentucky, transferred to Washington last January and sat out due to NCAA transfer rules. He was seeking to become eligible for the start of this season rather than missing the first month.

The ruling is a huge boost for the Huskies as Green is expected to be their starting point guard and Washington faces a challenging first month with games against No. 16 Baylor, Tennessee and No. 8 Gonzaga.

Green was a five-star recruit out of high school and averaged 9.3 points in 34 games as a freshman at Kentucky. He played in nine games last season off the bench before deciding to transfer to Washington.

The Huskies open the season next Friday against Baylor in Anchorage, Alaska.

Senior Software Development Engineer, AWS - Relocation Available - 831531-0 (Elizabeth,NJ)

 Cache   
DESCRIPTION

We're looking for an experienced Software Development Engineer (SDE) that is excited about the opportunity to build a new suite of applications on AWS, for AWS! We're an agile development team based in Seattle tasked with creating applications that empower internal employees to help AWS customers make better business decisions. Specifically, our team enables thousands of AWS employees to make proactive, data-driven recommendations that lower customer spend on AWS, predict customer migration costs to AWS, encourage customers to utilize relevant AWS programs, and recommend AWS services that meet the technical requirements of customer workloads.

We leverage Big Data technologies (EMR, Spark, and Redshift), a suite of highly available backend services, and modern JavaScript web frameworks (React.js and Redux) to build highly interactive and data-driven applications that seamlessly scale across the entire company. If you're looking for the full stack experience, this team is for you!

At AWS, we obsess over our customers. The AWS Business Development (BD) team has focused much time and effort to understand how AWS can add value for customers from a business perspective, outside of launching new AWS services or feature enhancements to existing services. The AWS BD team has manually tested and proven a handful of these business recommendations and now we're ready to build a suite of web tools that can scale these recommendations to customers and internal AWS employees around the globe. Our goal is to build a suite of applications that empower employees to cultivate a deeper relationship with customers, turning Amazon into a strategic business partner, in addition to being a world-class cloud computing provider.

As a SDE on the AWS BD Engineering team, you'll work with a team that's fully responsible for every aspect of the software development cycle, including software architectural design, data integration from various internal systems, building backend services for data recommendations, development of highly interactive web applications, software deployment using continuous integration tools, and monitoring to ensure high availability. You'll participate in all major software/architectural design decisions, help to define and optimize the team's development workflow, ensure code quality is of the highest possible quality, and ensure the team is adhering to software development best practices.

At Amazon, individual engineering teams are responsible for selecting the appropriate languages, frameworks, or technologies best suited to solve the problems at hand. Additionally, the AWS BD Engineering team has full access to every AWS Service and many other powerful, proprietary Amazon tools that improve developer productivity, ultimately leading to more powerful applications. The team works in agile methodology, to ensure we're adding value with each iteration. Success will be defined not only by applications that meet functional business requirements, but applications that can gracefully operate at AWS's ever increasing scale.

If you've worked at a startup or in a similar face-paced environment, you're excited to work with modern tools that address complex business problems, you have excellent computer science skills (OO, Algorithms, Data Structures, Design Patterns, etc.), and you're looking for experience as a full stack SDE, this job is for you!

BASIC QUALIFICATIONS

Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science (or related field) OR commensurate experience
7+ years professional experience in software development

PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS

Computer Science fundamentals in object-oriented design, data structures, algorithm design, problem solving, and complexity analysis
Knowledge of at least one modern programming language such as Java, Python, JavaScript, Scala

Experience taking a leading role in building complex software systems successfully delivered to customers
Knowledge of professional software engineering practices & best practices for the full software development life cycle, including coding standards, code reviews, source control management, build processes, testing, and operations
Experience with distributed computing and enterprise-wide systems
Hands-on expertise in many disparate technologies, typically ranging from front-end user interfaces through to back-end systems and all points in between
Experience developing in a Linux environment
Experience in communicating with users, other technical teams, and senior management to collect requirements, describe software product features, technical designs, and product strategy
Experience mentoring junior software engineers to improve their skills, and make them more effective, product software engineers
Experience influencing software engineers best practices within your team
Knowledge of microservice architectures
Knowledge of SOA architectures and an understanding of CI/CD practices
Knowledge of AWS Services and building services in AWS

Yield Growth Hits the Accelerator after Revenues Jump in Q3-- CFN Media

 Cache   
Seattle, WA - (NewMediaWire) - November 6, 2019 - CFN Media (OTCQB: CNFN), the leading agency and financial media network dedicated to the North American cannabis industry announces publication of an article discussing The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE: BOSS) (OTCQB: BOSQF), its Q3 earnings, and new product development.Figure 1: BOSS Revenue ChartThe global winds for legalization of marijuana continue to gain speed despite a policy paradox within many countries. In North America, Canada made recreational cannabis legal a year ago and expanded product forms last month. 33 U.S. states now allow medical and/or recreational marijuana, despite the plant remaining illegal at the federal level. Overseas, the European Parliament earlier this year voted for advancing medical marijuana. With the resolution, Parliament joined the World Health Organization in recommending rescheduling cannabis under international drug agreements, while incentivizing countries to expand access to the plant and its medically beneficial compounds.That's a nice backdrop for The Yield Growth Corp (CSE: BOSS) (OTCQB: BOSQF) to build its international footprint, and it shows in the company's third quarter results and developments to ring in the fourth quarter.Urban Juve Leads Revenues UpwardsYield Growth has seven subsidiaries, including the newly-minted edible mushroom brand Flourish Mushroom Labs, which gives the company diverse revenue streams and exposure to cannabis, hemp and edible mushroom segments within the $4.2 trillion global wellness market.The flagship brand is Urban Juve, a hemp-based, Ayurveda-inspired skincare line sold internationally via the company's e-commerce site and North American brick and mortar points of sale. Additionally, a broad and growing distribution network of potential new retail locations has been established throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe. North American brick and mortar distribution began this year through a sales partnership. This subsidiary is already in revenues with licensing and sales revenues received and 14 product SKUs now for sale.The sales efforts are paying off. After logging revenues of around $200,000 in Q2 2018, quarterly revenue has taken an uphill trajectory, topping $1.0 million for the first time during the second quarter of this year.The third quarter was even stronger, with revenue improving 61% quarter-over-quarter to $1.9 million. That was an increase of 355% from about $400,000 in Q3, 2018.Furthermore, Yield Growth maintained its practice of growing value without taking on convertible debt, an anomaly amongst cannabis/hemp-focused companies. In fact, BOSS has zero short-term loans, no long-term loans and no commercial debt. All the while, growing total assets to $6.5 million at the end of Q3 from $2.6 million at the end of 2018.Strong Quarter, Bright FutureAmericans want legal marijuana, as evidenced by a recent Gallop poll showing two out of every three people favor legal cannabis. As mentioned, more products are coming to the Canadian markets with new laws dubbed Cannabis 2.0. European authorities are supportive of legal cannabis. Yield Growth is well positioned to capitalize on the worldwide trend with its hemp-derived Urban Juve products that fall under the parameters of international treaties and the 2018 U.S. Farm Bill that legalized hemp sales nationwide, as well as with the Wright & Well™ brand in Oregon.Recreational marijuana has been legal in Oregon since 2014. The company recently attained Oregon Liquor Control Commission final approval for 9 Wright & Well products, allowing the new products to be sold through cannabis retailers across the state.On the heels of obtaining Compliance Certificates for the sale of Urban Juve products in Europe, Yield Growth forged a newpartnership with performance marketing company Green Space Worldwide. Per the accord, Green Space, who prides itself on only taking on a limited number of premium-brand clients, will market Urban Juve's product bundles across all facets of digital media, leveraging their internal media buying teams and rolodex of ...

MIKE’S DOORS

Mike Pember
Museum Doors
It is with sadness that we report the passing of former Cavendish Historical Society (CHS) board member Mike Pember. Mike quietly went about getting things done, be it the painting of the fence around the War Memorial, or getting the right things we needed for the Grange Hall Curtain. However, he had two questions. “What are you gonna do with it?” was his favorite as we’d go through collections. The second and more frequent question was  “Where are those doors?” The doors to the Museum have been installed and painted and will be  remembered as “Mike’s doors.” Our condolences to his wife Sandra Russo, to his children and to his many friends and family.

NO, MR. HICKERNELL IS NOT BURIED IN THE BASEMENT


Hickernell House
We posted this story on the CHS website, linking it to several Facebook sites. There was an incredible response with people posting about the HIckernells, who lived in the Gothic revival stone house that can be seen from 131. Below is the story with the addition of various comments made.

This past winter, while talking with Phyllis Bont, we learned about what happened when Mr. Hickernell died. Supposedly he went missing around the same time Mrs. Hickernell had a cement floor poured in the basement. Not surprisingly, the rumor ensued that Mr. Hickernell was murdered and buried in the basement. Phyllis was quick to reply that Mr. Hickernell had died in the garage, as her husband Dr. Gene Bont, responded to the incident.

Theresa Hickernell, who claimed to have been from Austria and educated in private schools, had issues with Gene over the funding of public schools. Needless to say, it was a bit challenging for her to have him respond and ask what would have felt like extremely personal questions,, yet they were required in order for him to render the most appropriate care. “She just said all sorts of things to people about Gene after that,” Phyllis explained. “Fortunately, people knew what she was like.”

While CHS board member Bruce McEnaney, when learning of how Mr. Hickernell actually died, was disappointed to see “a perfectly good story wrecked,” he was surprised at what we were able to learn about Theresa Hickernell thanks to various leads Phyllis provided.

As it turned out, there is no evidence that Theresa Ruth Swetitch Hickernell-Smith was raised in Austria. She was born in St. Louis, Missouri on July 22, 1912 and died in St. Louis County, Minnesota Jul 22, 2003 at the age of 90.

To the stories she told of being part of the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) in WWII, we found records that showed she was a trainee in the WFTD Class 43-4 being a “Washback from 43-2.” With no evidence that she graduated from the program, she was a regular contributor to the WASP Newsletter. In March 1980 she wrote the following:

"Yes, I was in the 1943 class of 43-2 at Houston Airport. From Houston, I flew to Goldsboro, NC, to be married to Francis Nelson Hickernell by a real Irish priest in a Catholic chapel. We had been married nine days when he was shipped overseas for four years. In the meantime, I had become associated with an accounting firm in Houston. I was later contacted by one of the generals in Whitehorse, Yukon Territory, to do some auditing, flew to Whitehorse, stayed for two and really got to see the country in the rough. From there down to Seattle to some more flying - even soloed in a seaplane in Ketchikan, Alaska. Then headed for Baranoff Island, Alaska, for special work in accounting and found out how the commercial salmon industry works. Back in Seattle, I started mountain climbing in the Cascades. When the war was finally over, my husband and I met after all those years and decided upon a second honeymoon. We started out in December and ended in June, meanwhile looking for a place to settle and go into business. We decided on Richmond, VA, where we opened up a flower shop that was so successful that after we had had the shop only ten years we were able to close it regularly and do a great deal of traveling. I've been around the world nine times and have made thirteen trips to Europe. After having the shop for 20 years, we retired to Cavendish, VT.

I've climbed many of the high mountains, but the one I take special pride in is Mount Everest. In 1967 & 1968. I was a lone trekker with 8 porters, a cook, and head Sherpa. Although there was a ban on the peak, I was allowed to climb to 21,000 feet. I1 have 2800 feet of color film of this trek.

My husband and I both own a fire opal mine. We do gem hunting and go big-game sport fishing. Again this year I am trying to break the women's world record of 1170 pounds on giant blue fin tuna. Have landed many in the 900 class but I'm still trying for the big one.

These are only a small part of my adventures. I'd love to hear more about 43-2.

Mr. Hickernell's grave
Sgt Francis Nelson Hickernell died on April 8, 1982, approximately two years after his wife submitted her note to WASP Newsletter. He is buried in Lewistown Mifflin County, PA.

Theresa would marry twice more, divorcing her second husband. Her last spouse, Ralph Smith made the decision to move from Cavendish back to his hometown in Minnesota as Theresa had developed Alzheimer’s Disease and he needed assistance caring for her.

In the original post, Phyllis talked about how her son, Geno, deviled Mrs. Hickernell. As it turns out, Carole Bont was the organizer.  

Carol writes, I do remember hearing about Mr. Hickernell's death in his garage. I was also part of an earlier large group of teens who stood across the street from the back of her house while she threatened us with arrest. I believe some deputized adult came by and told us we could not go on her property. After the group of kids I was with left and went elsewhere, we came back by her house on our way home and I saw that someone had covered the top of her fence with shaving cream. She was her own worst enemy. If she had been remotely nice to any of us she would not have attracted our negative attention

Comments to post
• I grew up right next to her house, she used to threaten us kids and leave rat poison for our dogs. One time she told me and my dad she was going to skin our dog alive in front of us.

• We were scared of her when we walked by her house after getting off the bus. She usually yelled something at us.

• She never smiled at all.

• I took photos of this house which was clearly empty of occupants. After developing the film I noticed a white image of a person standing in the window looking out at me. He is still there. Protecting his precious gem collection perhaps.

• I lived next door for 6 years never saw her outside. When I was younger I was in the church youth group and we went to her home and she was very nice, she played a small instrument sort of like a harp but very small after that I wasn't afraid of her or that house.

• I helped build those stone walls... Working for Boy Towle and Melvin Buck... Mr. H was ok... Mrs. H definitely did not like kids... If you wanted to get in trouble, just walk on their lawn....

• Old lady Hickernell was a miserable old gal lol. I remember being a child and walking by her house when her husband had a heart attack shoveling....he wasn’t buried in the basement. Although I wouldn’t have put it past her lol

• If I remember correctly the day Theresa Hickernell died Cavendish experienced the "tornado" that caused all of the damage up through Cavendish Center. [July 2003]….Knowing Tess for many years, we always said that that microburst was Tess coming through Cavendish, one last time!!

• I grew up on the other side of her and learned that she was nice as long as you were respectful of her. She even invited my parents, Sonia and myself over for Almendetto wine one night, I was probably 13 at the time! Worse stuff ever!!! We were always cordial and she even liked my boys.

• When we were kids we would say “Hi, nice day.” to Mr. Hickernell. He would say “Nice day for a murder”. Didn’t think he was serious.

• I remember one time Christmas caroling (I think the youth group from Cavendish Baptist) and she actually invited us into the house for refreshments and gave us a small tour of part of the house. I think we were there a while and she was quite pleasant.

• I painted her house in the early 80's, such a warm, kind, loving and giving woman, just adored my children and insisted that she pay twice the quote I gave for her house. None of this is true, of course, except that I did paint her house.

• I was driving on High St by Frank Guica's house and she was out walking. She turned and saw my car and continued walking down the middle of the road and made me wait until she was ready to move to the side.




Making bracelets
CARMINE GUICA YOUNG HISTORIANS
The first months of the new school year are very busy, and this year is no exception. New this year is the  Preserve &Serve Program where students serve each other, their families, community, state and country. In so doing, they learn basic civics, how their community functions and what type of citizens we want them to become. The students in 5th & 6th graders have been doing fall chores for residents, while the 4th grade is maintaining the school gardens. Grades 2-6 made bracelets, which they sold and raised $317 to help Team Rubicon provide hurricane relief efforts in the Bahamas. The 6thgrade participated in RiverSweep, helping to preserve the Black River.

At Coolidge
Trips so far have included: Calvin Coolidge Homestead; Tings Farm; Fitton Mill; Foliage Train; and Sturbridge Village. We have brought incredible speakers to the school, including the Chief of the Elnu, Roger Longtoe Sheehan, and experimental archaeologist Charlie Paquin.

For our holiday program this year, we will be celebrating “Winter Solstice.” The students will be making luminaries. If you have any Oui Yogurt glass jars, please drop them off at CTES or contact us at the address above to arrange for a pickup.


Center School
CAVENDISH SCHOOLS: Part III Center Rd School

Inspired by the paintings of John Snarksi, which were recently re hung in the Cavendish Town Elementary School (CTES), the spring edition of The Scribbler included the histories of The Cavendish Academy, Wheeler School; Fittonsville School; Duttonsville School; and the Rumke School. The summer edition of this newsletter included Tarbell Hill, featuring stories from Carmine Guica. This issue features stories from Sandra Stearns’ book “ Cavendish Hillside Farms 1939-1957/.

I attended the Center School, a rural one room school for eight years. We had no physical education, as such, but a walk of a mile each end of the day probably filled the need. Jannette, my sister, got married the same year I finished fifth grade. Thereafter I had to walk horses during the winter months before school each morning to clean the barn and feed the heifers there. After school there was wood to lug in, calves and horses to feed, cows to water and milking to be done.

We walked to school, rain or shine, balmy days and sub-zero. Often the roads were not plowed and we waded through snow up to our knees, sometimes almost to our waist. The larger, older ones (Jannette and later Donald Ackley) would go first and break the trail.

On below zero days we wasted no time on the trip and still arrived half frozen. Our fingers would be numb; our ears, nose, cheeks and chin tingling with the cold. When we arrived, if we were lucky, the wood stove in the corner would be burning briskly and our chills soon chased away. However, on the coldest days it took almost all day to reheat the room that had had no heat since the previous afternoon. Usually one of the Johnson children, who lived nearest to the school, was janitor. It was their job to lug wood in from the woodshed, build the fire in the morning and lug water by pail from Quinns. The janitor also had to sweep the floors each day after school and cleaned the chalkboards and erasers.

An oil heater was installed in 1947. Thereafter oil was lugged from the large storage tank in the woodshed and the fire kept going throughout the night, turned low. It went out over the weekend, but the janitor started it late Sunday afternoon in the winter time. ..

We did not have hot lunch. The Johnson children and usually Charlotte Quinn, living so close to the schoolhouse, went home for lunch. The rest of us carried a lunchbox and usually a thermos of milk. Those thermoses were glass lined and often times did not survive the trips to and from school.

I have never regretted the eight years I spent at the Center School. There were sometimes eight grades, usually only 6 or 7, with 15 or 20 students. The older students, when their work was finished, helped the younger ones practice phonics or listened to them read. They provided help with crafts and at playtime.

I was the only one in my grade for seven years so it was quite a challenge when I started high school. I had the best of both world. I did my own work and often did work with the grade above me. I also got to help the grades below me. I could work at my own pace and generally finished with each subject book ever year.

We studied reading, writing, spelling, arithmetic, history, geography, health and language. In the eighth grade we always had a semester of Vermont and local history. Our spare time was filled with craft projects and reading books.

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

 Cache   

airbnb brian chesky

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Verification, refunds, and high-risk reservations

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Going public in the face of local scrutiny

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

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

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

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

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

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

Comentario en BILL Y LA BOLSA por viejecita

 Cache   
Buenassss - A mí, Bill Gates me cae de la patada. Porque no me gustan ni el Excel, ni el Explorer, ni el Windows, y porque mi chico el genio, estuvo trabajando en Microsoft, en Seattle , y no me gustó nada la estructura piramidal de aquello, que se comprende en otro tipo de empresa, pero no en un sitio con tal cantidad de genios geek por metro cuadrado. Y a esos genios geek, hay que dejarles cuerda larga , que si tienen por encima a un burócrata empeñado en seguir y hacer seguir a todos por el camino marcado, no me vale. Y conste que mi chico se marchó de la empresa porque se dió cuenta de que su padre no iba a aguantar otro viajecito de 36 horas de Madrid a Seattle para ir a verle, y se volvió a Europa con una pinza en la nariz. En cambio Jobs y Wozzniak nunca me han dejado tirada. Y llevo con Mac, desde hace ni se sabe. Y Jobs no iba de salvar al mundo, que lo que más le importaba era la buena letra. - En cuanto a los libros ; Cuando salgo de casa, además de mi bolso de los de los antiguos carteros, que me hace una amiga guarnicionera, y que pesa un quintal, no sólo por el cuero de vaca del que está hecho, sino por el manojo de llaves, los tres pares de gafas, el móvil, la agenda, la chequera, la cartera , las gotas para los ojos y para la nariz, la lima de uñas, el monedero, los distintos bolígrafos y rotuladores, los pañuelos, las pastillas contra la tos, un metro extensible, y varios etcéteras, Todo eso aparte , pues, voy siempre cargada, con una talega con asas largas, de tela de tapizar hecha por mí, también en bandolera. Y dentro, además de las carpetas con lo que tenga pendiente para ese día ( escrituras, contratos, presupuestos, facturas... ) llevo siempre un libro. Procuro llevar uno que no pese mucho, y que se pueda leer a poquitos, mientras me hacen esperar en el notario, en la Junta Municipal, en Hacienda, en el Registro , en todas partes. Con un libro , las esperas , que odio, se hacen mucho más soportables. Sobre todo desde que me he hecho con un bastón, y me dejan sentarme en todas partes ( en algunos organismos oficiales, incluso me han llegado a sacar sillas de las de sus cubículos para que no estuviese de pié). Lo de llevar más de un libro , eso es más bien para los jóvenes .

Venkatesh Rao on Waldenponding

 Cache   

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

10:33

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

17:33

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

24:11

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Venkatesh Rao: Exactly.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

34:14

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Venkatesh Rao: It's a learning process.

38:32

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Venkatesh Rao: I think you describe Instagram.

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

45:04

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

51:18

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Russ Roberts:

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

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

The Facebook interview riddle 4:31
The Google interview riddle 6:02
The Apple interview riddle 6:49
The LinkedIn interview riddle 8:19

#interviewriddles #hardriddles #brightside

SUMMARY:
- #1. The riddle goes as follows: “Thirteen rotters stole my answer and they ROTated it by 4 and then ROTated it by 10 and all I have left is Uccr ziqy hc ozz QmpsfTwfgh Uwfzg! — (well you can read this for yourself). Can you help me get my answer back?” Everything in this riddle is right where it should be; there are no mistakes or typos, so take your time and try to solve it yourself.
- #2. Tim Peake, a British astronaut, posted a puzzle on his Facebook page, claiming it was from the test he had taken himself when applying for a position in NASA. Imagine you’re facing a cube. It can roll to the left, right, forward (towards you), or back (away from you). On the bottom of the cube, there’s a dot. Now roll the cube forward, left, left, forward, right, backwards, right. Where’s the dot now?
- #3. You’re about to board a plane to Seattle and you’d like to know if it’s raining there. You call three friends from the city and ask about the weather. Each of them has a 2/3 chance of telling you the truth and 1/3 chance of lying to mess with you. All three of them tell you that it’s raining, though. What is the chance that it’s actually raining there, considering that neither of the three knows the others?
- #4. Why are manhole covers round?
- #5. There’s a table with 100 coins lying on it. 10 of the coins are heads up, while the rest of them are tails up. You only know it, though, but can’t see, feel, or find out in any other way which ones are flipped. Your task is to split the coins into two piles so that there’s the same number of flipped coins in either pile.
- #6. How many golf balls would fit into a Boeing 747?

San Francisco Looks To Remain Undefeated Vs. Wilson, Seattle

 Cache   

By TERESA M. WALKER AP Pro Football Writer

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

Something in the NFC West is about to give.

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

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

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

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

UPSET SPECIAL: SEAHAWKS 31, 49ers 30.

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

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

CHARGERS, 24-21

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

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

CHIEFS, 33-30

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

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

UPSET SPECIAL: BILLS, 21-17

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

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

BUCS, 30-24

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

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

GIANTS, 28-24

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

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

SAINTS, 34-20

No. 4 Baltimore (minus 10) at Cincinnati

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

BEST BET: RAVENS, 30-14

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

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

PACKERS: 30-21

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

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

LIONS, 20-18

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

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

COLTS, 28-20

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

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

RAMS, 26-21

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

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

COWBOYS, 30-24

___

2019 RECORD:

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

AP Top 25 Takeaways: Pac-12, UGA Avoid Playoff Elimination

 Cache   

By RALPH D. RUSSO

The last word before the College Football Playoff selection committee starts ranking teams was elimination.

With most of the top contenders taking the weekend off, a bunch of second-tier playoff hopefuls were trying to stay in the race Saturday. No. 7 Oregon, No. 8 Georgia and No. 9 Utah can look forward to seeing where they are positioned Tuesday when the first CFP rankings are revealed.

No. 6 Florida, thanks for playing. The Gators took their second loss of the season, against Georgia this time, and are done. A two-loss team has yet to reach the playoff. It might happen eventually, but if it does it will be a conference champion. The Gators are likely locked out of the Southeastern Conference championship game after handing first place and the tiebreaker to Georgia.

The Bulldogs have been off the radar since being upset at home by South Carolina last month. Facing Florida was a chance for Georgia to re-establish itself as a team that many thought could break up the Alabama-Clemson national championship monopoly.

Jake Fromm had his best game in about a month as time and again Georgia turned to its junior quarterback to convert on third down against Florida. The Bulldogs converted 12 of 18 third downs and Fromm was 20 for 30 for 279 yards and two touchdowns.

The Bulldogs are still short on offensive explosiveness, which could make it tough to get through No. 1 LSU or No. 2 Alabama down the road. Then again, they also might have the best defense in the SEC.

Over in the Pac-12, it was a very good day for the conference’s playoffs hope, with Utah and Oregon both passing tricky road tests.

The Utes were 1-6 against Washington since moving to the Pac-12. They took an early shot from the Huskies but dominated the second half to win the first game of the high-stakes Pac-12 doubleheader and ensure the doomsday scenario for the conference would not be activated.

Underrated is a weird compliment. Who exactly is doing the rating? It seems, however, to fit Utah quarterback Tyler Huntley, who outplayed the highly touted Jacob Eason in Seattle.

“He’s one of the elite quarterbacks in the country and I stand by that,” Utah coach Kyle Whittingham said.

The Utes then became Oregon fans.

The Ducks fell behind 10-0 early and then buried USC, which beat Utah early this season and needed to be handed another loss to avoid tiebreaker complications for the Utes.

The victory put Oregon and Utah on a clear path to a Pac-12 championship game matching 11-1 teams, with the winner without question a serious playoff contender. The Ducks have the Arizona schools and the Civil War game against Oregon State, which looks like it might be tougher than it has been the last two years when Oregon won by a combined 124-25.

Utah’s remaining games are against suddenly revitalized UCLA, Arizona and Colorado.

When the first playoff rankings come out Tuesday, how will they look? A guess:

1, LSU

2, Ohio State

3, Alabama

4, Clemson

5, Penn State

6, Georgia

7, Oregon

8, Oklahoma

9, Utah

10, Baylor

IRISH ESCAPE

What got Brian Kelly into trouble with Notre Dame fans through the first few years of his tenure as coach were the “bad losses.”

The Fighting Irish lost games to Tulsa, South Florida, Navy, Northwestern and Duke. Some at home.

It is one thing to get smoked by elite teams in bowl games but quite another to allow basketball schools and guarantee-game opponents to celebrate in front of Touchdown Jesus.

The Irish have cleaned that up the past 2½ seasons and deserve some credit for persevering against Virginia Tech on Saturday. The Hokies have a much better pedigree than that bunch mentioned above, but this is not exactly vintage Virginia Tech. The Hokies came in as a 17-point underdog and the Irish did all they could to hand them this game until the very end.

“That was difficult, but our guys responded,” Kelly said.

Ian Book put together a clutch, long touchdown drive that will probably put him back in the good graces of fickle Irish fans, who have been wondering why the quarterback that led Notre Dame to the playoff last year has seemingly regressed.

As for Kelly, he has a good team that probably came into the season with inflated expectations coming off the playoff appearance. The Irish will be favored in each of their final four games (Duke, Navy, Boston College and Stanford) and if they can take care of business, that will give Notre Dame a third consecutive 10-win season, something that hasn’t happened in South Bend since Lou Holtz was coach in the early 1990s.

AROUND THE COUNTRY: From ESPN’s “College GameDay” on Beale Street to dropping 50 on an unbeaten SMU team, Saturday might have been the best day in the history of Memphis football. ... Numerous reports have indicated that USC will be hiring an AD this week. Trojans coach Clay Helton will meet the new boss coming off a 56-24 loss. The next move for USC is now a forgone conclusion. ... All Willie Taggart needed to do was show a little improvement in his second season at Florida State and he would have had no problem keeping his job. The important people at Florida State want no part of another coaching change and paying a $17 million-plus buyout. After getting clobbered by Miami at home, the Seminoles stand at 4-5 with games remaining at Boston College and at home against Alabama State and Florida. A loss to BC would make a second straight 5-7 season likely and could lead to a lot of empty seats at Doak Campbell Stadium the last two weeks. At that point, Florida State might not be able to afford to keep Taggart for another year. ... Syracuse’s collapse this season has been stark. Even if you were skeptical about the Orange being able to follow-up last year’s 10-win season, who would have guessed they’d be this bad: Now 3-6 and 0-5 in the ACC after allowing 496 yards rushing in a loss to Boston College. ... Nebraska gave up a game-winning late fourth-quarter drive to a Purdue team playing a third-string quarterback who was a former walk-on with only Division III offers out of high school. The Cornhusker (4-5) now must win two of three against No. 18 Wisconsin, Maryland and No. 19 Iowa to get bowl eligible and try to avoid a third straight losing season. ... No. 23 Wake Forest (7-1) is in prime position for a trip to the Orange Bowl after it throttled North Carolina State. The Orange Bowl gets the ACC champion, unless that champ goes to the playoff. If that happens, the next best ACC team goes to South Florida, and the Demon Deacons, who are at No. 4 Clemson in two weeks, are well positioned to be that team.

Benj’s keynote presentation, Painting The Photo You Meant To Take, and his workshop, is all about imparting tips and tricks to help you brand yourself as a wedding photographer while taking great photos.

From weddings in Kenya to elopements in Istanbul, Benj loves diving into other cultures and subcultures through the camera and is passionate about sharing his knowledge on what he has learned along the way.

How to get a listing a week: Expanding your ACE after Daylight Savings

 Cache   

On December 7, the sun will go down at 5:29 p.m. in Miami. It’s the earliest sunset of the year for the city. On December 8, Seattle will have its earliest sunset of the year when the sun goes down at 4:17 p.m. Our friends in the Pacific Northwest won’t even get out of the office in time to see the sun (If we’re honest, it will probably never come out from behind the clouds that time of year. So sad.)

 

When we turned back the clocks and enjoyed one extra glorious hour of sleep on November 3, we gave up a significant amount of daylight. These short days will present unique challenges to our industry until we spring forward on March 8.

 

Many agents see 5-8 p.m. as primetime for facetime with prospects and clients. Typically that window allows agents to get in front of people in that sweet spot between the end of the workday and sunset. The fall and winter are not necessarily conducive to that as evidenced above with the short days and early sunsets. Most agents will surrender 70-plus percent of the time that they spend in front of clients. They will accept it as seasonality and not even try to course correct.

 

Why do these early sunsets present such a challenge? First, it’s hard to show properties or have your properties shown in the dark. Buyers can’t get the best impression of a home when it’s dark out. The entire feel of the showing is different. It’s difficult to evaluate the condition of the home, namely from the exterior. As a buyer specialist, your clients may miss a house they would really like otherwise. 

 

As a marketing specialist, the prospective buyers viewing your listing may not be willing to pay as much as they would otherwise if they saw it during the day. We say that we market properties to present them in the best possible light to buyers. In the fall and winter, that needs to be treated literally.

 

Initial consultations held in that same time slot present their own challenges, even if you hold them in your office. Research shows that exposure to sunlight improves alertness, functionality and thus productivity. With shorter days and meetings in the dark, it’s easy to see why your prospects or clients could be less attentive and more drained during evening meetings than they maybe during the spring and summer. We want to be in the best position to convert, and drowsy prospects may be less ready and willing to make a decision to work with you. 

 

That’s enough of the dark side of the shortened days. What are we going to do about it? We have previously discussed the importance of an abundance mindset in the fall season when so many agents dial it back. Every season presents an opportunity, and the short days of the fall and winter are no different.

 

These shortened days provide an opportunity for you to expand your ACE; your authority, celebrity, and expertise. What does it mean to be viewed with authority, celebrity, and expertise? As an authority, you are viewed as an accepted source. You have the information and power to settle disputes and bring clarity to situations. As a celebrity, you are well-known and renowned within the industry. There is social proof that shows you to be someone who is greatly respected in their circle. As an expert, you are viewed as a specialized professional with a valuable set of skills in your field. You are among the best of the best.

 

What the heck does the sun going down earlier have to do with your positioning as an authority, celebrity or expert? Fair question. There are two specific reasons: You are better able to do business during business hours and you are better able to present unique insights to which the rest of the industry is ignorant.

 

Do you know who doesn’t care what time it gets dark? Doctors, lawyers, accountants and numerous other respected professionals who don’t need to convince patients, clients, and customers to meet with them during the business day. When these folks tell customers to show up at a given time, they do it. They value what the experts offer, so they show up when they’re told.

 

Are most realtors as educated as folks in these industries? No. That’s a common yet equally pointless objection. Don’t allow yourself to entertain such negativity. The better question to ask is “Are all realtors capable of being as knowledgeable in their respective field as those folks?” Absolutely. They are fully capable of attaining and communicating that level of expertise. Most won’t though.

 

Thanks to the shorter days, you now have even more clout behind why your prospects and clients should meet with you during the business day. You can communicate to them the challenges we previously discussed to help them understand the importance of meeting on your terms. It is in their best interest to listen to your instructions on the matter.

 

Most clients don’t want to waste their time any more than you want to waste yours. By helping them to foresee the challenges of buying and selling in this season, you’re bringing them a perspective they likely aren’t getting from anyone else. The agents that are still sticking around the market are probably doing everything the same way that they would at any other point in the year, and it’s slowing down their entire process.

 

Furthermore, by inviting them into the office during the day, you will put them in a better position to make an important decision. They will have greater focus and clarity if you meet during the day. Retention of the information about your systems and the process as a whole will be far easier than if you met in the dark after work. It is in their best interest.

 

Think about how great it would feel to better position your prospects to convert, better prepare your clients for the transaction AND get your evenings back. This can totally reshape your business.

 

And this new approach doesn’t need to be limited to the fall and winter. Implementing these strategies now can help you gain momentum heading into the spring. You can set a precedent that this is how you do business: in the office during business hours. You can establish yourself as an expert with a unique and valuable approach. You can expand your ACE in this season.

 

Meeting with prospects and clients during the business day is not a silver bullet for improving your ACE. You still need to bring top-notch information and strategies to present yourself as more comparable to a doctor, lawyer or accountant than you are to the average agent in the industry, but you’re foolish to ignore how this specific strategy and season can positively impact your perception in the marketplace.


          

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

 Cache   

airbnb brian chesky

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Verification, refunds, and high-risk reservations

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Going public in the face of local scrutiny

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

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

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

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

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

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

Comparing Forbes' lists of America's richest people from 1982 and 2019 shows how differently wealth is tracked today

 Cache   

forbes 400 1982 vs 2019

  • For 37 years, Forbes has released an annual ranking of the 400 richest Americans.
  • Business Insider obtained a partial copy of the first Forbes 400 list published in 1982. Comparing it with the 2019 version shows key differences in how wealth was tracked and described then versus today.
  • On the 1982 list, the richest Americans' fortunes are described using vague wording like "probably exceeds $1 billion" and "above $2 billion."
  • Today, the numbers are much more precise — e.g. Jeff Bezos is worth $114 billion and Bill Gates is worth $106 billion.
  • The 1982 ranking was not numbered, but organized into categories like "$500 million and up," while today the individuals are clearly ranked No. 1 (Bezos), No. 2 (Gates), etc.
  • Unlike on the 1982 list, billionaires in 2019 were also ranked by their philanthropy score, based on how much they give to charity. 
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

For 37 years, Forbes has released an annual ranking of the 400 richest Americans.

Today, the Forbes 400 is topped by people like Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, and Warren Buffett, and represents hundreds of billions of dollars.

Business Insider obtained a partial copy of the first Forbes 400 list published in 1982. Comparing it with the 2019 version revealed several stark differences in how wealth was tracked and described then versus today.

The most obvious difference is the sheer quantity of wealth depicted on the Forbes 400 lists. The top five richest Americans today — Bezos, Gates, Buffett, Mark Zuckerberg, and Larry Ellison — are worth a collective $435.4 billion — more than 2% of America's GDP.

The top five richest Americans in 1982 had a combined fortune of roughly $11 billion. But the differences don't end there.

The Forbes 400 in 2019 gives a precise ranking of American billionaires and includes a 'philanthropy score'

In the 2019 list, the billionaires are organized by net worth in a numbered ranking. Other data points include each billionaire's age, home state, source of wealth, and whether or not the individual is an impact investor.

Each person also gets a philanthropy score on a scale of one to five, measuring how much they give to charity. 

The richest person on the list is Jeff Bezos, with an estimated net worth of $114 billion and a philanthropy score of two.

Forbes 400 2019

If you click on a person's name on the online version of the list, a box drops down with more details about the source of the person's wealth. Bezos, for example, has two bullet points:

  • "Jeff Bezos founded e-commerce colossus Amazon in 1994 out of his garage in Seattle. He remains CEO and owns a nearly 12% stake.
  • He divorced his wife MacKenzie in July 2019 after 25 years of marriage and transferred one quarter of his Amazon stake to her."

You can then click "See Full Profile" for a more in-depth description of each individual's life and fortune. 

The original Forbes 400 in 1982 was not explicitly ranked, used vague wording, and represented much less wealth

The original Forbes 400 published in 1982 looks quite different from today's.

For one, the richest person on the Forbes 400 in 1982 wouldn't even make the list today. The richest American in 1982 was Daniel Keith Ludwig with an estimated $2 billion net worth. In 2019, the minimum net worth to make the list was $2.1 billion.

Similar to today's bullet points, each individual got a short blurb noting their age, location, source of wealth, and in some cases, tidbits such as "in continual pain 50 years from back injury" and "principal hobby: sailing."

Forbes 400 1982

But in stark contrast to today's list, the richest Americans' fortunes in 1982 were described using vague wording like "probably exceeds $1 billion" and "above $2 billion." In 2019, those numbers are much more precise — e.g. Bezos is worth $114 billion and Gates is worth $106 billion — although they are still estimates. 

And unlike the 2019 list with its clear, numbered ranking, the 1982 richest Americans weren't numerically ranked.

"They were still ordered by net worth, there just wasn't a numbered ranking explicit on the pages," Christina Vega, Forbes' director of communications, told Business Insider. "They were also further divided into various sections, like '$1 billion and up,' '$500 million and up.'"

Vega told Business Insider that while the Forbes 400 methodology has evolved and improved over the years, "net worth numbers are all still estimates." 

While the Forbes 400 lists have evolved since 1982, two names have consistently appeared on the rich list since the very beginning: Philip Anschutz and William Herbert Hunt.

In 1982, Anschutz was ranked the seventh-richest American with an estimated net worth of "over $1 billion," made in industries including oil, railroads, telecom, real estate, and entertainment. Hunt was ranked the 10th-richest with a net worth "in excess of $1 billion," derived from the oil industry.

Pode conter revelações sobre o enredo

Certa vez, em uma aula de inglês, um professor passou para a turma uma história de uma pesquisadora que virou cuidadora de Gorilas, e que isso era sua paixão. Em suas palavras, era a sua canção. Na formatura do curso, o professor me disse para ouvir a minha canção. Eu ainda não trabalhava com escrita, estava bem longe de publicar meu livro, que já estava escrito, mas na gaveta, e estava frustrada profissionalmente, assim como a protagonista do filme de hoje. 
Bernadette Fox é agorafóbica, sofre de ansiedade e insônia, mas nem sempre foi assim. Há 20 anos, ela foi uma arquiteta revelação nos Estados Unidos, ganhadora inclusive de bolsas de incentivo do calibre da McArthur. Ela também era notável, dona de uma personalidade incrível, engraçada e criativa. Porém, isso ficou no passado: após um incidente traumático, ela se muda da Califórnia para a chuvosa cidade de Seattle, onde estabeleceu família, mas nunca ficou totalmente feliz. Atualmente, a única criação de que tem mais orgulho é a sua filha, Bee. O resto da sua vida está um caos: o casamento está em crise, ela é uma dona de casa frustrada, os vizinhos não a suportam, e ela não faz questão de agradá-los. Seu nível de ansiedade social é tamanho que ela tem uma assistente pessoal virtual, Panjula, para quem envia e-mails solicitando o que precisa. A casa malcuidada reflete bem o estado de espírito da dona: majestosa em outra era, porém caótica e sem vida. 
Para piorar, Bee cobra um presente de formatura do ensino fundamental: uma viagem para a Antártica em família. A iminência da viagem engatilha os sintomas de Bernadette, que antevê os piores cenários possíveis. 
Após uma conversa com seu antigo mentor, Paul Jellinek, somada a uma intervenção promovida pelo marido após um incidente desastroso colocar em risco a família, Bernadette se dá conta que se tornou um perigo para a sociedade e some no mundo. 
A adaptação do livro de Maria Semple publicado em 2012 é divertida, emocionante e nos prende na tela até os créditos finais. Eu estava ansiosíssima para assisti-la, e não me decepcionei. O filme discute várias questões delicadas, como saúde mental, a figura da mãe, relações, o perigo de uma vida sem realização, e a necessidade que temos de escapar no mundo. Me lembrou muito do romance de Gayle Forman, “Quando eu parti”. 
A narração da história fica por conta da filha, Bee, possibilitando um olhar doce, em contraste com a personalidade ácida de Bernadette. 
Temos aqui um mote parecido com o de muitos outros: uma mulher que some no mundo. Porém, o foco aqui é na família que ela deixa para trás, principalmente na filha, que acredita nela e a procura sem descanso. 
Porém, em um artifício interessante, a exposição da história da protagonista é feita por um documentário assistido pelos personagens em diferentes momentos. Isso foi essencial para que soubéssemos do que os demais personagens sabem, sem prejudicar o ritmo. Ponto para o roteirista e diretor, Richard Linklater. Para quem não conhece, o diretor é o mesmo de Boyhood. Apesar de não ser super fã do filme Boyhood (não gostei mesmo), impossível não reconhecer sua visão, já amadurecida aqui. 
“Cadê você, Bernadette” conta com um elenco de peso. Cate Blanchett é uma das minhas atrizes preferidas desde Blue Jasmine, e estou convencida de que pode fazer qualquer papel. Aqui, ela nos deixa nervosos com a dimensão dos problemas de Bernadette, e esperançosos de que encontrará a solução para eles. Cada um dos atores escalados faz um trabalho incrível: a família de Bernadette Fox, composta por Elgie e Bee, interpretados por Billy Crudup e a estreante Emma Nelson, nos faz torcer por eles. Aos olhos da esposa e até da filha, o marido se tornou um homem viciado no trabalho, que negligenciou a família. Porém, é possível ver o lado dele, e se comover com o homem que não sabe o que fazer quando a esposa se transforma em uma reclusa que se recusa a fazer terapia. Em suma, não está fácil para ninguém. 
Outros nomes conhecidos no elenco são Judy Greer, Kristen Wiig, responsável pelas melhores cenas de humor, e Laurence Fishburne, no papel do mentor de Bernadette. E, claro, Kate Burton, conhecida dos fãs de Grey’s Anatomy como a eterna (e intimidadora) Ellis Grey. 
O longa tem um errinho de continuidade, mas nada que comprometa a experiência do espectador. E tem a questão do trailer, que vende uma história bem diferente da que vemos. No trailer, entendemos que a história começa quando ela foge, assim como no livro e que focará no seu novo trabalho na Antártica, em meio a privação de sono e vários perrengues. Aqui, a história da Bernadette é contada até o momento em que ela encontra a estação de pesquisa. Este não é o tipo de filme que tem cenas pós crédito, mas uma parte da história é contada nesse momento. Não saiam da sala ainda. O final é fofinho demais. 
Recomendo esse filme para todos os públicos. Com certeza, é um filme família que diverte e emociona, dependendo do seu estado de espírito e momento que esteja vivendo. O efeito que teve em mim foi o da história da tratadora de gorilas. Então indico principalmente para quem esteja se sentindo meio perdido na vida, como uma fonte de conforto e distração. Serviu para me lembrar de escrever mais. 
E não se esqueçam de procurar a sua canção.

Direct brain to brain interface demonstrated by scientists

 Cache   
SEATTLE — According to a study published in Nature, BrainNet is the first brain to brain interface to link three people and allow two way communication using only their mind. Two senders and a receiver cooperate in a Tetris-like game, using EEG and transcranial magnetic stimulation. According to the study, each of the senders is provided with a monitor that displays the game, and two LED lights flashing at different frequencies. The senders give a binary yes or no signal to the receiver by looking at one light or the other, which indicates whether the Tetris block should be rotated to win the game. When one sender says yes, a transcranial stimulator informs the blindfolded receiver by stimulating the visual cortex, causing the receiver to see a spot or ring of light. A no response did not engage the stimulator and the receiver did not visualize a light spot or ring. The senders can check the receiver's decision and send corrections via BrainNet if they disagree. The results showed that three people were better than one in playing the game. When researchers flipped the responses of a sender deliberately, the receiver learned to disregard bad information, showing BrainNet can overcome interference or an unreliable player.

Amazon's spending in Seattle Council races doesn't deliver

 Cache   

SEATTLE (AP) — Amazon poured $1.5 million into an effort to overhaul Seattle's City Council this year. It didn't deliver.

Though many votes remain to be counted, early returns suggest the online retail giant and other business interests will have fewer obvious allies on the Council than at any time in recent memory.

In Amazon's liberal hometown, that could mean officials who are more willing to tax companies to address the city's homelessness crisis and transportation problems. It could also mean a Council that's ready to rein in corporate spending in city elections.

"On balance, this is not the City Council that Amazon or the Chamber of Commerce wanted to see," Council Member Lorena González, who was not up for re-election, said Wednesday.

Amazon contributed to the political action committee of the Metropolitan Seattle Chamber of Commerce, which supported a slate of seven candidates it perceived as more business-friendly.

Former Mayor Mike McGinn noted that when he took office in 2010, seven of the nine council members were backed by the chamber. After this election, he said, the chamber is likely to have just two or three.

"Amazon's spending helped unite and grow the left," McGinn said Wednesday. "The labor and social justice block gained seats in this election."

Many people in Seattle were displeased with the nine-member Council, especially over its handling of homelessness. Four incumbents declined to seek re-election, and business groups saw a chance to redirect a city government that had recently approved labor-friendly measures such as the $15 minimum wage, requirements that companies post workers' schedules two weeks in advance and protections for hotel workers.

The effort may have backfired by sparking outrage on the left. Democratic presidential...

Beavers beat Rams in playoff rematch

kenr Mon, 11/04/2019 - 5:22pm

By Chuck Mingori

CONTRIBUTING WRITER

Under a bright setting sun inside historic Seattle Memorial Stadium, the Ballard Beavers and Ingraham Rams faced off Friday in a rematch of two top 3A Metro League contenders. These teams just played three weeks ago.  Ballard won that game 29-13.

Now, the stakes were much higher with the winner advancing to the preliminary round of the state playoffs.  The result this time was no  different, but the final score was, as Ballard cruised to an easy 54-3 win, their ninth victory of the season.  Ingraham fell to 6-3 with its third straight loss.

Ballard head coach Ross Humphries emphasized how difficult it can be to beat an opponent twice in one season, let alone two times in three weeks. But the Beavers stayed focused and concentrated on the task at hand.

“We had our best week of practice. We were confident with our game plan going in and our players executed at a high level,” Humphries said outside his team’s locker room.

Ingraham jumped out to a quick 3-0 lead on a field goal after the Rams had recovered an onside kick to open the game.  But Ballard responded at the 2:16 mark of the first quarter when running back Jarman Hauser took off on a 44-yard dash to the end zone. Kicker Joe Zahner kicked his first of six extra points in the game for a 7-3 Ballard advantage.

Roland Schoeneman recovered a fumble, one of six takeaways on the night for the Beavers, to set up the  second score. Quarterback Ryan Blokker found receiver Bryce Wressel first for a 20-yard gain before Hauser tallied his second score on a 14-yard run and a 14-3 Ballard lead with just 19 seconds left in the first quarter.

A Hunter Dynes interception and return of 28 yards to the Ingraham 6-yard line had Ballard knocking on the door again early in the second.  Blokker found Yohanes Teshome for a 3-yard pass play and score as the lead grew to 21-3.  Ballard’s powerful kicking game proved advantageous with Ingraham stuck deep on its side of the field facing a brutal Ballard line of defense throughout the night.

But it was the Ballard offense that had to overcome a deep hole midway through the first half.  After being penalized for holding and then unsportsmanlike conduct on one play in which there were actually three Beaver infractions, Ballard faced an improbable first down and 46 yards to go from its own 20.  Blokker found  junior tight end Nolan Ewaliko open for 27 yards to cut the necessary first-down yardage more than in half. Still looking at third and 12, Blokker dumped a pass off to Hauser, who turned the play into a 12-yard gain and a first down. Hauser reached the end zone for the third time on a 15-yard run as the lead grew to 28-3 with 2:41 remaining before intermission.

Trying to use a running game against a fired-up Ballard defense, Ingraham quarterback Connor Richardson managed to break loose on a 17-yard gain to move into Ballard territory at the 48.  Dajean Wells’ interception and 60-yard return for a touchdown ended the Rams’ hopes as the Ballard lead ballooned to 35-3, just before halftime.

Ingraham’s opening second- half drive, starting at its own 20 after another boot out of the end zone on a kick-off by strong-footed Josh Villarino, ended suddenly on an interception by Ballard’s Davyn Waters. Nolan Ewaliko took in the next Ballard score converting a 36-yard pass play from Blokker into a score making it a 41-3 lead.  

George Blue’s interception returned possession to Ballard at the Beaver 26-yard line.  Ballard marched up field and scored on a 21-yard run by Roman Ewaliko.  Although the PAT was wide for only the second time by kicker Zahner, the clock began to run late in the third quarter.  Sam Slotkin closed out the scoring with a 3-yard touchdown as the spirited Ballard marching band performed yet another school fight song.

Hauser led the Beavers’ balanced ground game with 94 yards on 11 carries and three touchdowns. Blokker completed 11 of 12 passes for 154 yards and two touchdowns.

RENTON - Ability to overcome adversities enabled No. 2 state 4A football team Kennedy Catholic to turn back a determined Federal Way Eagles team 42-28 at Renton Stadium on Fri., Nov. 1, in an NPSL crossover seeding matchup of Mountain Division and Valley Division champions, respectively.

Kennedy (9-0) will host KingCo No. 5 in the first round of state playoffs. Federal Way (7-2) travels to Skyview in Vancouver. 

"We played through a lot of adversity," said KC head coach Sheldon Cross. "It was a good job by Federal Way. It was a rough day and we played like it. We gritted it out and made plays when we had to." 

Adding to the adversity was mourning the death of a long-time and beloved Kennedy teacher earlier in the day. 

Federal Way conceived a game plan of playing ball control football and keeping the ball in the middle of the field to keep the clock running. Misdirection plays kept the Kennedy defense off balance for much of the affair.

The Lancer defense was able to rise up to create turnovers and stops at just the most critical moments at Renton Stadium.

"We played really sloppy," said Sav'ell Smalls. "We need to execute better. There was a lot of adversity, but it builds character. You find out who you really are." 

Behind their strong offensive line, the Eagles controlled the line of scrimmage against the huge Lancer linemen early. 

RJ Tausilli directed a 63-yard drive with steady gains on the ground by Damani Nelson and himself mixed in with a 22-yard completion to Jatavious Magee. 

On third and goal from the three yard line, Shane Aleaga jumped on a loose football following a sack on the eight yard line to stop the threat of scoring. 

On its next possession, FW began a long drive from its own nine. 

Once again, dominating the line, Nelson and Tausilli followed the same pattern as before. A 16-yard pass completion to Ronald Davis plus some good gains by Adam Maiava brought Federal Way to a first and 10 at the Lancer 30. 

Kennedy Catholic jumped offsides for the third time in the game before a five-yard Eagle gain. 

Tausilli fired up the middle for a 13-yard gain ahead of a Nelson eight-yard surge as the first quarter ended with no scoring. 

On the first play of the second quarter, Tausillii scored from four yards out. The extra point put KC in the novel position of being behind this season. 

Quarterback Sam Huard was having a difficult time completing long passes for the Lancers and gave up an interception to Magee, who returned the ball for 13 yards to the 37. 

Continuing to draw Kennedy defenders offside, the Eagles eventually reached the Lancer 28 with a fourth and three. 

On a fake punt, the ball was snapped to Maiva who was swarmed by a host of defenders for only a two yard gain. 

On second and 11, Huard finally got untracked for a 31-yard touchdown pass to Junior Alexander with 3:34 until halftime as the teams were tied at 7-7. 

On their next possession, the Lancers began at their own 48. 

A quick pass to Justin Baker netted 19 yards and a later 16-yard run from Zaire Lozolo matriculated the ball to the Federal Way five. 

Three plays later, Lozolo went through a gaping hole for the touchdown as Kennedy Catholic took a 14-7 lead with just more than four minutes until halftime. 

Keyed by runs from Jaylen Bogan and Kennedy penalties, the Federal Way Eagles put on another march 49 yards away from paydirt. 

Bogan eventually caught a 14-yard scoring pass that was nullified by a penalty with 50.4 seconds until intermission.

On third and 10 from the 14, Tausilli spotted an open receiver on the left side of the end zone, but Kieran Collins intercepted the poorly underthrown pass and returned it to the 26 yard line. A kneel by Huard sent the Lancers into halftime with a precarious 14-7 margin.

KC took the second half kick off and reached the 29 yard line. A Huard to Alexander left sideline reception of 34 yards led to the next Lancer score. 

Running a crossover route on a skinny post pattern, Alexander split the defenders for the 30 yard TD with 11:08 left in the quarter. 

Seemingly in control, Kennedy Catholic reached second and 10 on the 43 yard line when Huard passed for a pick-six as Bogan intercepted for a 54-yard touchdown. 

Suddenly, the resurgent Eagles were within 21-14 with 8:12 left in the quarter. 

Just more than two minutes later, Federal Way strong safety Elijah Graham intercepted the ball in the end zone after Kennedy had reached the Eagle two. 

On third and three from the 23, Magee caught a pass at the 42 yard line and outmaneuvered defenders until he took it to the house for a 77-yard FW touchdown at the 5:07 mark of the frame. 

Locked in a 21-all duel, the Lancers went on a 65-yard drive aided by a pass interference penalty and good rushing yards from Lozolo.

Baker's diving catch in the end zone helped KC grab a 28-21 lead with 3:38 until the fourth quarter. 

Tausilli, Bogan, and Corey Quinn led a covenant of Eagles on a long drive that commenced on their own 34. 

Later in the drive, Tausilli found Quinn for 12 yards for a first and goal at the KC two. 

On the second play of the fourth quarter, Tausilli fumbled into the end zone where Kennedy Catholic recovered. 

Kennedy looked to be clear after Baker crashed into the end zone from three yards out with 9:51 left in the fourth quarter, but the Eagles later recovered a fumble that led to a 17-yard touchdown to Koa Derouin and the score was 35-28 as 6:32 remained. 

Less than two minutes later, Huard spotted Zane Thornton in the right corner of the end zone for a touchdown to extend Kennedy's lead to 42-28. 

TJ Paaga accentuated closure by recovering a fumble and returning it for 12 yards as Kennedy Catholic escaped with a hard fought win. 

Despite the turnover, Huard still passed for 464 yards and four touchdowns. Alexander had 235 receiving yards and two scores. Lozolo earned 50 rushing yards and a touchdown. 

For Federal Way, Tausilli led the way on 76 rushing yards and a touchdown. Magee gained 116 receiving yards with a touchdown.

A Near Dawn

 Cache   


What is this Darkness?

A Near Dawn is a charmingly devastating psychological thriller with amusing highs, gut-wrenching crashes, and mature themes.

When Seattle-based attorney Sam Nichols, a victim to some disturbing psychological difficulties, takes an important new case, he finds himself exposed to progressively dire circumstances that threaten to unravel his reality and destroy those closest to him. With his mentor's firm on the brink of collapse, Sam will have to take on a ruthless multinational corporation being protected by some of the vilest people you could imagine. The odds already seem slim, but you will soon learn that things were never as they appeared - as an even deeper conspiracy begins to emerge. Where will you find yourself if you keep untangling the threads to this mystery? You must be brave to uncover the truth!

A Near Dawn is greatly inspired by traditional Point & Click Adventure games like Broken Sword, Blackwell, and Ace Attorney, and inherits some of their wit, humor, and even interface, compelling you to navigate both the internal and external darkness that threatens to consume our protagonist.

We just launched our KickStarter Campaign to help get support for our project! Please take a look and if there is anything you can do to help share or support us, we would greatly appreciate it!

Features

  • Beautiful artwork and animations rendered in 1080HD
  • Immersive cinematics with frame-by-frame art
  • Original soundtrack composed for the game
  • Fully voiced audio provided by exceptionally talented actors
  • Point and Click interface with puzzles to solve - the flow of this game is inspired by traditional adventure games
  • Dynamic decisions that alter the course of your interactions with others - be they rewards or consequences for your actions
  • Psychological tension - the main character has a darker personality who will come to the surface if you feed that darkness with the decisions you make
  • Multiple endings - there is one true ending, but your successes or failures can take you off course, leading you to a different resolution
  • Episodic narrative - this is a full game, but it is part of an ambitious project with a far-reaching storyline


Minimum:
  • OS: Windows XP and higher
  • Processor: 1.66 Ghz
  • Memory: 1 GB RAM
  • Graphics: DirectX compatible card
