Congressman Doug Collins (R-GA): Adam Schiff Is Running The House Judiciary Committee More Than Chairman Jerry Nadler

 Cache   
Congressman Doug Collins (R-GA), Ranking Member of the House Judiciary Committee, joined Brian Kilmeade to discuss the letter Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler sent President Trump telling the President that he and his legal team are welcome to participate in the public impeachment hearings in the Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, December 4. Collins said he is so disappointed in Chairman Nadler for convening next week's public hearing he can hardly put it into words. Collins does not yet know who the Republicans or Democrats plan on calling as witnesses at the hearing and believes nobody would fault President Trump if he does not send anyone on his behalf to participate in the hearing. When asked if his opinion has changed after recent reports that President Trump only released the aid to Ukraine after he was informed about the whistleblower, Collins said no because the President did not do anything wrong. Plus, Congressman Collins on being humbled by President Trump's support for him to be appointed to fill the seat being vacated by retiring Senator Johnny Isakson and reports that Georgia Governor Brian Kemp (R) prefers Atlanta businesswoman and co-owner of the Atlanta Dream, Kelly Loeffler. Watch here: Full transcript below: Brian Kilmeade: Last week, I asked the ranking member, "Do you know what's going on with impeachment?" He said, "I don't know." I said, "Did you ask Jerry Nadler?" He said, "Yeah, he doesn't know." Now he knows. Joining us now, Congressman Doug Collins off the treadmill. Hi, Congressman. Doug Collins: Hi, Brian. How are you, bud? Brian Kilmeade: You were running this morning doing our show, right? Doug Collins: I did. I was out there running, get me through it. Got me through about three miles or so. Got to work off this Thanksgiving potbelly, here. Brian Kilmeade: Yeah. You have like zero percent body fat, but -- Doug Collins: Brian Kilmeade: -- now you're the ranking member. Can you tell our audience, Congressman, what we're going to be looking at next week? Doug Collins: Next week? I am so disappointed in Chairman Nadler; I can't even properly put words to it. But what we're going to see next week is the judiciary, where the Democrats promise would be a fair process for the president, for everybody involved, and to sort of handle the Schiff-show fiasco, is we're going to have next week, a made for television event in which you're going to have academics who are media commentators on other more liberal networks, typically, who are going to come on, and they're going to tell us, "Oh, well, this is possibly an impeachable offense.". Really, this is an affront to the American people. We've been waiting for what their determination as to what the president did wrong. We found nothing. And now we're going to use our valuable time to have academics tell us what they think an impeachable offense is. Why don't we actually have Adam Schiff? How do we have -- you have a fact witness who dealt with a whistleblower, his staff or others, coming under -- and testify under oath to what they actually knew and what they actually didn't know. This is a disgrace. But this is the way -- I mean, the whole thing is it is a smoke and mirrors because they have nothing on the president. Brian Kilmeade: So, Congressman, who you guys calling? Doug Collins: It looks like right now -- we're filming the final debate, but we've got one, I'll be able to -- we haven't announced yet, but I'll announce it later. But we have one more that's coming. Brian Kilmeade: Do you know who they are calling? Doug Collins: No. We haven't found out yet. But will if -- this is an interesting thing, Brian, do you realize that this is a rerun of the same basically hearing we had in June. Brian Kilmeade: No. Doug Collins: We've had this hearing before. We've had this hearing before, and, you know, but there's a difference here. And I think it's interesting to note and I sort of made this -- I made this, you know, discussion before. But what we saw with Mr. Goldman last week, what we see with, you know, Norm Eisen and Barry and the embassy in our committee, that paid consultants, what I call "Bring a Donor to Workday" and get to ask questions. If you're a large enough donor to the Democratic Party, you get to ask questions in a committee hearing. What we thought last week, and then we're going to see this week, it didn't allow their counsels to ask these questions, you know, and make it look like this formal proceeding to get to the president. But actually, I have a question. How is having academics talk about impeachment actually giving the president any way to question those who have accused him? It doesn't. And so, I think this is the problem we're having in this whole show is they don't know what to do. And it's almost as bad as last week when Jerry Nadler didn't know what he was doing. Now we know what he's doing, and he might as well just not have had anything. Brian Kilmeade: So, a letter from Nadler, here's an excerpt. "I'm hopeful that you and your counsel" -- meaning the president -- "will opt to participate in the committee hearing consistent with the rules of decorum and with the solemn nature of the work before us." So, they're asking the president to go. Should he? Doug Collins: I think that if the president wants to, he's more than welcome to come to this sideshow that we're going to have next week. If he doesn't send an attorney or someone from his legal counsel, I don't think anybody would fault him, because this is a farce. This is something that anybody could put -- even if you believe everything Adam Schiff has told you, even if you believe everything from the Democrats to come into this, to say this -- and believe me, Brian, behind the scenes, Democratic members of Congress have come to me, and they have said that they would hope that the Judiciary Committee would actually be a place where, you know, they could actually make a case and have due process and everything that follows, because they know the substance -- of the substance that he's done nothing wrong is out there. But they came to me and said, "If this is the way it's going to be," then they're struggling with it, and they're going to be put in a bad position by the speaker and by Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler on something. So, we'll see where it goes from here. We've sent several letters giving Chairman Nadler the opportunity to fix it. We give him every opportunity to make it right, to have a true hearing, if this is what you want to do. And so far, we've gotten back absolutely zero. I don't know the is not working or what. But they -- have shows, not the answer. Brian Kilmeade: And then, what you would have is this and then that's it. Or then -- so Schiff walks over, delivers his articles of impeachment, then you just vote on it? Or you guys go debate his articles of impeachment? Doug Collins: No, well see, he's not going to bring us articles. He's going to bring us the findings of his committee. They leave it up to the Judiciary Committee. I'm assuming a with Schiff, because Schiff, frankly, seems to be running our committee more than Chairman Nadler is. They'll come over, and they'll work on the articles over the next couple of weeks, if that's what they're looking to do. And then, my hope is that we actually have some facts or witnesses. We're going to send over, you know, this discussion. We'll have this discussion about what witnesses we get. I think Adam Schiff, who's made himself out on several occasions to be the, quote, "Special counsel with the investigator." If that be true, and he writes a report, then there's no reason in the world that he should not be put under oath in front of our committee, answer questions from both Republicans and Democrats and the president's council -- just like, if he compared himself to Ken Starr, Ken Starr did during the Clinton impeachment. He needs to make it -- but I don't think he'll have the -- I don't think without the gavel in his hand and ability to make up his testimony, he'll be willing to do that. But I'm challenging him right now. If you believe this president has does something wrong, you should have the temerity to come and tell us what and answer questions from everyone, including your own contact, or your staff's contact, with the whistleblower. Brian Kilmeade: If they stop short and just go for censure, would you be okay with that? Doug Collins: No, because the president has done nothing wrong. I think this is the bottom line. I mean, they're now trying to find a way out of what the American people now see, for real, is a farce and a sideshow. The president did nothing wrong in that call. I mean, when you look at it from over time, that is the factual basis of what they're discussing. In fact, think they knew that this discussion was working when they had to go out and poll test what words can make the American people upset about what the president did? And then they couldn't prove it. So, no, I think they just need to -- if they want to do this, drop it. They'll pass you at 68. They'll actually pass the -- American -- legislation. Go actually pass something. If they can go out the American people, say, "Sorry, we wasted eleven months of taxpayer dollars, but we now are trying to get something done for you. Would you vote for us again?" Brian Kilmeade: Congressman Collins is with us now from Georgia. Congressman, there's two revelations that popped up in The New York Times today that Donald Trump knew of the whistleblower complaint when did he release the aid to the Ukraine. And number two is when the aid was withheld, two OMB directors resigned, workers resigned because they were upset about it. Does that change your point of view? Doug Collins: No, not really. I mean, this is what we've seen so far in this investigation. You've seen government workers who believe that they are above -- that are the policy writers, and that they're the ones who ought to be listened to. I mean, whether it be OMB or what we saw with Kent and Taylor, which -- the first day of public hearings when you had the two of them talk about how they're 30 plus years of government service, they should be the ones making and helping the president decide? You know, forgets that the president is the one who makes actual the policy. And if you if you're resigning over policy differences, then that's what you should be doing because you shouldn't be working, where -- somewhere where you can't agree with policy. I think the other issue is the president never felt he did anything wrong on the call of whether a whistleblower said he did or didn't. And when you look at the facts of the case, they didn't -- he didn't do anything wrong. So, I don't think it makes any difference. This is a last gasp attempt by the -- and it's been going around. If you looked in the Democratic media for the last little bit, this has been out there, and now they're just trying to bring it forward, to life now because they failed in the public hearings, and now they're trying to bring it up before it gets the judiciary. Brian Kilmeade: I was surprised. Yesterday, the president talked to Bill O'Reilly, and he said this about Rudy Giuliani. Cut one. Brian Kilmeade: What was Rudy Giuliani doing in Ukraine on your behalf? President Trump: Well, you have to ask that to Rudy. But Rudy, I don't even know. I know he was going to go to Ukraine, and I think he canceled a trip. But, you know, Rudy has other clients other than me. Brian Kilmeade: So, you didn't direct him to go there on your behalf, you didn't -- President Trump: No, but you have to understand, Rudy is a great corruption fighter. Brian Kilmeade: Giuliani is your personal lawyer. So, you didn't direct -- President Trump: Yeah. Brian Kilmeade: him to go to Ukraine or do anything -- President Trump: No, I didn't direct him. Brian Kilmeade:-- or put any heat on him? President Trump: But he is a warrior. Brian Kilmeade: So, does that surprise you? Because I thought the president had directed him, this was with Gordon Sondland said. Gordon Sondland: Secretary Perry, Ambassador Volker, and I worked with Mr. Rudy Giuliani on Ukraine matters at the express direction of the president of the United States. Brian Kilmeade: So, what's going on here? Do you know? Doug Collins: No, not really. I mean, I think what you look at, though, is you go back Mr. Sondland's comment. This is also the same guy who started the line and train of the quid pro quo. And then when directly questioned, he said, "Well, that was my presumption." And now he makes this flat-out statement? I mean, I'll have to let the president -- you know -- I would trust the president's recollection better than I would Ambassador Sondland. But I mean, that's something for the president -- you know, again, it goes back to why you're having hearings and why you're not. And, you know, at this point in time, you know, the issue is, is the president can choose to dictate on how he wants to do foreign policy. Any way he wants to do it, that's given to him in the Constitution. So, yeah, his foreign policy being in the power of the executive. So, I would defer to him, and, you know, let him stand with that statement, and Sondland's already had enough issues. Brian Kilmeade: All right. I want to bring something to you personally. The president's a big fan of yours, and you've been so impressive, I think, that both sides look at Jim Jordan, you, and John Radcliffe as people pretty formidable, who actually understand the issues, are able to react in real time. And you've impressed the president enough that he evidently sat down with your governor and said, "If someone's going to replace Congress -- Senator Isakson, it should really be" you. And Kemp comes back and says, "I want it to be Kelly Loeffler, who I don't know. But evidently, he's a fan of Romney, not Trump." What could you tell us about this? Doug Collins: Well, I just -- I'll tell you this. We have put in -- the governor who's been over the last almost hundred days trying to figure out what he want from -- this pick it -- the governors and the governors alone. We feel like we have a very strong rhythm. We ask for a portal to be open. We actually submitted our as resume in the portal. I've not heard from the governor. But I know he has heard from the president and others. And we would be honored to have that pick. We could work. We believe that not only working for nominee and -- this -- with the administration on what we've been doing, but for the state of Georgia. We hope he would make that pick, but we're just sitting back waiting, and then we can make a determination of what we need to do, you know, after he makes his pick. But right now, it's sort of in a holding pattern, if you would. Brian Kilmeade: Did you know how the president felt? Doug Collins: The president told me. And he's been very supportive when he first heard about it. And again, we've just been quiet because we have a job to do in D.C. and we're going to continue to do that job. We feel like our resume could speak for itself, and then we've been very humbled by the president, his board, and others who have come to say that they would like to see if we feel humbled by that. Well, hopefully the governor will be a part of that. But we'll see how it works out. Brian Kilmeade: Do you have an opinion on Kelly Loeffler? Doug Collins: Don't know her that well. I mean, I know there's been a lot of issues, you know, coming up. She's never been in public office, so we'll just -- you know, that that's for the governor to decide. Brian Kilmeade: Do you worry about Georgia? They say Georgia is no longer a layup for Republicans. Is it changing? Doug Collins: Georgia is a state that is changing, but it is silly. It is still a conservative state. And I think that's what most people miss when they come into our state and they talk about it. Look, Stacey Abrams did everything she possibly could last year, including lie about the current governor trying to suppress votes, and she's still not governor. And what we've got to do is we've got to be able to continue to reach into the suburbs where the demographic is changing. But, Brian, for me, not only, you know, supporting the president, working for conservative values, but I've also, over the last couple of months have been awarded a bipartisanship award from the Javits Foundation in New York and from Allegheny College, because we worked on criminal justice reform, a bipartisan thing. Brian Kilmeade: Yeah. Doug Collins: It helps people in suburbs and inner cities. That was our bill. That was something the president took on and he's championed it. It's been amazing. We did music. We've done data privacy. So, I know how to work across the aisle. I know how to work with folks who don't agree with me all the time. We all play roles, but we've also played that role of actually helping people in the state of Georgia and the country. And I think that's the way you win voters, you go convince them from the hearts and minds. And I think that's what you do when you actually, you know, communicate with people. So, Georgia's -- I don't think it's in play as liberals would like you to believe it's in play. And -- but we need a strong force from our base and from a reaching out perspective to keep it. Brian Kilmeade: And just to bring it all home, and I know you got to get going, and I hope it breaks your way. But I have a book signing December 15th at the Books-A-Million in Lawrenceville, Georgia, right outside Atlanta. Start time's 1:00 o'clock. I'm not saying it's mandatory to come but would certainly help your grade. Doug Collins: All right. One of those -- I'm sure I'll talk with you before that. But Lawrenceville, I've got aunts who live in Lawrenceville. Well, I look forward, if I can. I'll look forward to seeing you. Brian Kilmeade: All right. Same to you from the Alamo Avengers. Congressman, thanks so much. Appreciate it. Back in a moment.

THE TRUTH BEHIND THE BRAWL BETWEEN JOHN LENNON AND CHRIS MONTEZ IN 1963! EXCLUSIVE!

 Cache   

Eyewitness accounts finally reveal what really happened in the brawl between John Lennon and Chris Montez, which has become one of the great urban legends of rock & roll!

It was March, 1963. Chris Montez’s rock & roll career had just reached its zenith, but was already on the slide. The Mexican-American singer who’d been promoted as the new Ritchie Valens; was slipping off the charts. Chris’s single, “Let’s Dance”, had peaked at #4 on the Billboard charts the previous November, and his follow-up, “Some Kinda Fun,” missed the Top 40 by that much in January.

The future was a bit rosier for Montez’s touring buddy, Tommy Roe. The 20-year-old from Atlanta who’d been touted as the new Buddy Holly ever since his Peggy Sue rip-off, “Sheila”, landed at #1 in September 1962. Then Tommy’s follow-up single cracked the Top 40, but just.

So in March 1963 the two guys were still hustling. Their careers were born thanks to The Day The Music Died in the wreckage of a chartered single-engine V-tailed Beechcraft 35 Bonanza, near Clear Lake, Iowa.

And they were getting as much mileage as they could from their one-hit-wonders.

Now, following a tour through the segregated Jim Crow South, with a revue of acts that included Sam Cooke, Clyde McPhatter and Smokey Robinson, Chris and Tommy were heading to England. Both their follow-up singles had made it to Top 10 in the UK, and British audiences were always excited to see pop stars from the States, even those past their expiration date.

As Andrew Loog-Oldman, the future Rolling Stones producer who did publicity for the tour, said, “America was everything, in music and on the screen. It gave us our language. It gave us our hope, so to speak. It gave us our music.”

Chris and Tommy were given the month of March, a tour that pinballed around the UK, from Bristol to Bedford, East Ham to Exeter; twenty-one dates over twenty-three days. Joining them would be their opening act: an up-and-coming band from Liverpool.

Tommy Roe remembered: “The agent called me and said, ‘You’re going to England to do a tour with Chris Montez.’
“And I said, ‘Oh, great. We’re old buddies, so that should be fun.’
“So we get to England, and on the bill with us is this group called the Beatles. Nobody in the States had ever heard of the Beatles. We didn’t know who the Beatles were.”

Chris Montez and Tommy Roe

The two young Americans found out pretty quickly, once they stepped out of the rickety bus and were crushed by Beatlemania. The Beatles second single, the handjob-begging, blue balls anthem, “Please Please Me,” just happened to be at the top of the UK charts that week. And Parlophone was in the process of rush-releasing their first album, while masses of fans swarmed through every door and window at every stop along the way.

Chris Montez said, “Once we got rolling, we couldn’t go anywhere, Tommy Roe and myself and the Beatles. You never know how shocking it is until people rush at you and start tearing at your clothes and screaming. And you’re thinking, ‘Wow, yesterday I was doing nothing, today people are screaming in my face!’ It was kind of exciting.”

Please Please Me - The Beatles

Tommy Roe remembered, “We started the tour and these guys have a huge following. They’re just kicking off their career, but their fans are everywhere. They’re chasing them around the theaters and it was really pandemonium. The only time I’d ever seen anything like this was with Elvis.”

The four young Beatles had a busier time than Chris and Tommy, breaking away from the tour, and driving to London to appear on the BBC, or to EMI Studios on Abbey Road for final touches on their debut album. And, for several nights early on, John Lennon was knocked out by a cold, so the Beatles performed as a trio.

Chris remembered the tour this way: “We got along good together. They seemed like regular guys, just rockers. And they loved music. I don’t think the Beatles were aware what was going to happen in their career. Paul was real humble and real nice. Ringo and George were real cards. You know, I had a lot of respect for Lennon, and even more now. But he was who he was. Lennon was, I guess, kind of rambunctious.”

Tommy said, “They were very nice. They were very inquisitive about America. I mean, they asked tons of questions about America. And John, he had a Gibson guitar, and first thing he did on the bus, was say, ‘You know, we did your song ‘Sheila’ at the Star Club in Hamburg and people loved it.’
And he said, ‘But I don’t think I’m playing the chords right….’
And he played it, and sure enough, he was playing a D before the E.
I said, ‘Nah, it goes like, A, E, D, A, like so…’
And he said, ‘Ah, that’s it!  I knew I was doing something wrong.’
And then John let me use his guitar on the bus, to write songs.”

The Beatles were driven off on the morning of March 14 for business in London. When they arrived back at the hotel, it was time for the show in Wolverhampton. Chris was holed up with a beer, in a private den set aside for the musicians, safe from the packs of screaming girls outside.

Chris remembered what happened next. “I said, ‘Hey, where were you guys?’
“They said, ‘Oh, we were finishing our album.’
“I said, ‘Really?’
“And they said, ‘You want to hear it?’
“And I said, ‘Yeah,” and they put the record on. The first cut. When they put the needle down, it just knocked me out. I said, ‘What a rocker!’
“And they played me the rest of the album and I said, ‘Paul, play that one again for me. I love that one. That’s my favorite.’
“He said, ‘You like that one?’
“I said, ‘Yeah!”

That first cut on the Beatles’ first album was “I Saw Her Standing There,” the one that began with the count-in: “One, two, three, FUCK!”

Chris Montez and Tommy Roe

Chris Montez would turn out to be the last pop star the Beatles would open for. He was also the first to hear The Beatles’ debut album. And, by the final week of the tour, Chris would be the one standing right in the middle of the road, the first victim of Beatlemania, run over by the locomotive of sex, adolescence and rock & roll, stoked by those four words. One. Two. Three. FUCK!

As Andrew Loog Oldman remembered, “Chris came in just as the curtain was coming down and he watched. He had a wonderful experience, as we all did, but there was just now no denying what was happening with this incredible phenomenon, the Beatles. By April, they were it.”

The tour moved along. Everyone got along on the bus. The Beatles did their half dozen numbers and made way for the American headliners. Chris learned to perform with the Beatle fans stragglers rushing the stage.

The album Please Please Me was released on Friday, March 22. On Saturday night, way up in the northeast, in Newscastle-Upon-Tyne, there was a celebration after the show, and the dispute that until now has been the most disputed moment in rock & roll history.


John comes in, all the Beatles come in, and John’s got a beer in his hand and he’s really whacked, you know, just drunk out of his head and…”


Late Saturday night, March 23, 1963, or possibly in the early morning hours of March 24th, John Lennon and Chris Montez got into it.

As Tommy remembered it, “Somebody in the business threw them a party. It was in a beautiful house, kind of a country house out in the forest. Everybody was drinking beer and having a good time. And Chris had left the party and was on the bus asleep in his seat. And we all come piling back on. I come on, I sit down next to Chris. And John comes in….”

One would think that this would be one triumphant night on which Lennon would have held his fire, except for the fact that he never could hold his liquor. Remember March 14, 1974?
The Troubadour, West Hollywood?
You know, the waitress who responded to his, “Do you know who I am?” with, “Yeah, you’re some asshole with a Kotex on his forehead.”

Tommy continues, “I sit down next to Chris, and John comes in, all the Beatles come in, and John’s got a beer in his hand and he’s really whacked, you know, just drunk out of his head and…”

Chris interrupts, “Lennon poured beer on my head!”

Tommy continues, “He pours the beer on Chris’s head, sitting in his seat, and Chris wakes up, he’s wet with beer, and he goes, ‘Oh man, what’s that?’ He was pissed!”

Chris interjects, “And John says, ‘You son of a so and so.’ I was shocked. I was perturbed, I got real pissed, and I got up and I said, ‘Hey, you! What the hell you think you’re doing? You want some?’ and started rushing at him.
“Because I didn’t take any of that crap, you know?
“We started throwing punches and we got tied up together.”

Tommy picks it up, “And the big scuffle starts, and we start fighting in the aisles and scuffling and, you know, it was kind of ugly.”

Chris said, “Actually, Tommy Roe stepped in and broke it up.”

Tommy again, “I got between them, everybody was scuffling, and we kind of scuffled down in the floor, got between the seats and stuff.”

Chris recalled, “Tommy said, ‘If you want anything with him, you want something with me, too!’”

Tommy said, “Well, it was only against a dozen, man. We were the only American acts. Chris was getting ready to hit him, and it’s like, we don’t want to go there. We’d already had a fight on that tour between the road manager and one of the guys in the band.  And the road manager butted this guy, and his face just opened up. It was like a really a rowdy group, from what we were used to.”
“And that’s how it ended. There was no winner.”

Chris said, “Paul sat by me and said, ‘Come on, Chris, let’s be friends….’
“I said, ‘Paul, just get away from me, I don’t want nothing to do with you guys. You know, you pissed me off!”As for Lennon, Chris recalled, “John? I guess he was a wise guy. But I got the sense that, I shouldn’t say this, that he was jealous of who I was or what I did. I don’t know what his problem was, but I didn’t like it too much.”The next day, the show rolled into Liverpool. It was a homecoming for the Beatles, and a chance for Chris Montez to show he didn’t harbor any hard feelings.

Chris remembered it this way, “When we arrived in Liverpool, I told my manager, ‘This is their town. Let them close the show.’
“He said, ‘You sure?’
“I said, ‘Yeah, It’s no big thing.’
“And that’s the way it was with me.’”

The Beatles closed the show in Liverpool and they wound up headlining the remaining six nights of the tour. Chris Montez had no problem with that, either, although it turned out that one performer did hold a grudge that final week on the bus. Turned out, John was just a jealous guy.

Tommy said, “Before the fight, John was letting me use his Gibson guitar on the bus to write songs. The next day he said, ‘You can’t use my guitar anymore!  That’s it. That’s it! No more. Leave my guitar alone.’
It just got cold after that. And by this time, they had the tour locked up.
It was really a Beatles tour by this time.”

It really was.

The Sinister Scientist Behind the CIA’s Mind-Control Mayhem

 Cache   

The Sinister Scientist Behind the CIA’s Mind-Control MayhemPhoto Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast/APStephen Kinzer has written books about civil wars, terror attacks, and bloody coups, but his latest might be his most alarming. “I’m still in shock,” Kinzer says of what he learned about the appalling experiments conducted by a government scientist most Americans have never heard of. “I can’t believe that this happened.”These aren’t the words of an author trying to fire up the hype machine. Though the events recounted in Kinzer’s Poisoner in Chief: Sidney Gottlieb and the CIA Search for Mind Control took place a half-century ago, they’re scandalous in a way that transcends time.For much of his 22-year CIA career, Gottlieb ran mind-control projects designed to help America defeat Communism. In the ’50s and ’60s, Kinzer writes, Gottlieb “directed the application of unknowable quantities and varieties of drugs into” countless people, searching for the narcotic recipe that might allow him to mold his human test subjects’ thoughts and actions.Gottlieb and a network of medical professionals gave LSD and other drugs to prisoners, hospital patients, government employees, and others—many of whom had no idea they were being dosed. A CIA staffer died in highly suspicious fashion after Gottlieb had his drink spiked with LSD. Meanwhile, when his bosses considered killing a foreign leader, Gottlieb developed custom-made poisons. Numerous people were harmed by Gottlieb’s work, but because he destroyed his files on the eve of his 1973 retirement, it’s hard to quantify the carnage he wrought.Perilous Discoveries: The Unintended Consequences of Scientific SecrecyThe broad outlines of Gottlieb’s story have been public for years. Major newspapers ran obituaries when he died in 1999. In 2017, he was portrayed by actor Tim Blake Nelson in Errol Morris’ Wormwood. But Kinzer’s book, the first proper Gottlieb biography, includes fascinating new facts about the end of his career and fresh details about disturbing episodes he orchestrated. Poisoner in Chief describes Gottlieb’s little-known participation in torture sessions at U.S. military sites in foreign countries and reports that in at least one case a doctor who worked with Gottlieb gave LSD to children. Gottlieb was “the Josef Mengele of the United States,” Kinzer, a former New York Times reporter and the author of many books, told me in a recent interview.How did Gottlieb, the Bronx-born son of Hungarian Jews, become a man who would earn comparisons to a ghoulish Nazi doctor?After getting a doctorate in biochemistry from the California Institute of Technology, Gottlieb joined the CIA in 1951, a time of fear and uncertainty. Just six years after the end of World War II, American troops were fighting in Korea. Washington was increasingly worried about what many believed was the existential threat posed by the Soviet Union. Gottlieb was on the job for a few weeks, Kinzer writes, when he was tapped “to invigorate” what would be known as the Artichoke project.Artichoke—the name was essentially meaningless; it might’ve been a CIA boss’ favorite vegetable—gave Gottlieb broad license to carry out mind control projects. Kinzer cites a CIA memo that describes the mission: “the investigation of drug effects on ego control and volitional activities, i.e., can willfully suppressed information be elicited through drugs affecting higher nervous systems? If so, which agents are better for this purpose?”The CIA aimed to create truth serum to use on prisoners and other compounds that would help wipe away memories of events that would cause trouble for the agency. If all went as planned, intelligence officers would have the ability to program people to carry out missions like those later seen in Richard Condon’s novel The Manchurian Candidate and the subsequent movie.Artichoke projects often amounted to “medical torture,” Kinzer writes. Inspired in part by brutal experiments conducted by the Japanese military and the Nazis in the ’40s, Artichoke included the “dosing (of) unwilling patients with potent drugs, subjecting them to extremes of temperature and sound (and) strapping them to electroshock machines.” Artichoke squads worked with impunity at American military sites in Europe and Asia. Such projects were closely guarded secrets, but Poisoner in Chief contains details that will be new to most readers.For instance, Kinzer notes that when “Artichoke scientists came up with a new drug or other technique they wished to test… they asked the CIA station in South Korea to supply a batch [of] ‘expendable’ subjects.” A related CIA memo said the subjects were needed for the testing of an unnamed but “important new technique,” adding, “Technique does not, not require disposal problems after application.” This is ambiguous language, but it suggests that the CIA knew that in some cases, human test subjects might be killed in the process.Gottlieb oversaw a scientific unit at Maryland’s Camp Detrick (since renamed Fort Detrick), where chemists researched the effects of LSD, heroin, and other drugs, sometimes trying the substances themselves. But he was not just a creature of the lab. “We know that he participated in torture sessions in East Asia,” Kinzer says, speaking from his home in Massachusetts. “We know that he made repeated visits to Germany, which, like Japan, was under U.S. occupation, so he didn’t have to obey any laws. And he was also active in other parts of Europe.”In time, Gottlieb became intimately familiar with LSD’s mind-altering effects. He admitted that he’d used the drug more than 200 times. “When I look at the variety of the projects that he was involved in,” Kinzer says, “from hypnotism to electroshock to parapsychology to handwriting analysis, I begin to think that maybe it was while he was on LSD that he was thinking, ‘I got another idea.’”By 1953, Kinzer writes, “Artichoke had become one of the most violently abusive projects ever sponsored by an agency of the United States government.” That year, Allen Dulles, one of Gottlieb’s ardent backers, got the CIA’s top job. The new boss, Kinzer writes, was among Washington’s leading mind control proponents: “Dulles never recoiled from the most extreme implications of ‘brain warfare.’” Dulles wanted “to intensify and systematize” the work done under Artichoke, Kinzer adds, and he tapped Gottlieb to head a new program: MK-ULTRA, named for the “ultra-sensitive” activities it was expected to carry out.With a generous budget and an “effectively unlimited supply” of LSD—the pharmaceutical company Eli Lilly manufactured the hallucinogenic drug for the CIA—Gottlieb became perhaps “the most powerful unknown American of the 20th century,” Kinzer says.A key MK-ULTRA initiative involved medical professionals who agreed to administer drugs to their patients—often without the patients’ knowledge or consent. For instance, when Gottlieb wanted to know how much LSD a body could withstand, he got in touch with Harris Isbell, a researcher at a Lexington, Kentucky addiction center who had made his curiosity about LSD known in a letter to the CIA.Working with a group of men who “were not told what sort of drug they would be fed or what its effects might be,” Kinzer writes, Isbell administered large doses of LSD. He reported that the men experienced anxiety, hallucinations, and “choking.” As always with CIA projects of this kind, it’s tough to say how much damage was done. But Kinzer writes that at least one patient did speak out, saying that “for the rest of his life he suffered from delusions, paranoia, panic attacks, and suicidal impulses.”Another keen CIA collaborator chaired the pharmacology department at Emory University. “As subjects,” Kinzer writes, Dr. Carl Pfeiffer “used inmates at the federal prison in Atlanta and at a juvenile detention center in Bordentown, New Jersey,” administering depressants and hallucinogens in volumes that resulted in seizures and hallucinations that lasted for days. One of Pfeiffer’s subjects was James “Whitey” Bulger, who later became a notorious Boston gangland killer. Bulger said that as a young inmate, he was given LSD daily for more than a year.Another doctor—a New York allergist named Harold Abramson, who got an $85,000 MK-ULTRA stipend—“developed a special curiosity about the impact of mind-altering drugs on children,” Kinzer writes. “He closely monitored experiments, including one in which 12 ‘pre-puberty’ boys were fed psilocybin, and another in which 14 children between the ages of six and 11, diagnosed as schizophrenic, were given 100 micrograms of LSD each day for six weeks.”In Manhattan, meanwhile, Gottlieb helped set up a CIA safe house, where, with the hands-on help of a local narcotics cop, “unsuspecting citizens would be lured and surreptitiously drugged,” their behavior monitored via surveillance equipment in an adjoining apartment.It was around this time that Gottlieb attended a retreat with some other CIA men. The colleagues began drinking, and a few minutes later, Kinzer writes, “Gottlieb asked if anyone was feeling odd. Several said they were. Gottlieb then told them that their drinks had been spiked with LSD.” The incident triggered an emotional crisis in one of the men, a scientist named Frank Olson. Days later, Olson plunged to his death from the window of a Manhattan hotel. As seen in Morris’ film Wormwood, there’s compelling circumstantial evidence that Olson was murdered because the CIA feared he would divulge one of the secret projects he’d worked on.One of Gottlieb’s most remarkable duties involved adversarial foreign heads of state. According to colleagues, he prepared “a pre-poisoned tube of toothpaste” meant for Congolese Prime Minister Patrice Lumumba (it went unused) and ran a scientific team that considered a bizarre plot to disgrace Fidel Castro. Believing that the Cuban leader’s charisma was linked to his facial hair, Gottlieb wanted to have thallium salts sprinkled in his boots. “His beard would then fall out,” Kinzer writes, “leaving him open to ridicule and overthrow.” This, of course, never came to pass.By 1963, MK-ULTRA’s final year, Gottlieb and his colleagues “were forced to face their cosmic failure,” Kinzer writes. “Their research had shown them that mind control is a myth—that seizing another person’s mind and reprogramming it is impossible.”Nonetheless, Kinzer believes that Gottlieb left a deeply lamentable imprint on the modern CIA. He says there’s “a direct line between Sidney Gottlieb’s work and techniques that U.S. agents taught to Latin American security services in the 1960s and ’70s—these techniques were also used in Vietnam—and then later on to the techniques of torture and so-called extreme interrogation that were used at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo.”Though Gottlieb’s decision to destroy his files means that there’s much we’ll never know, Kinzer appears to be the first journalist to directly tie his departure from the CIA to the scandal that ended Richard Nixon’s presidency. Gottlieb’s team, he reports, “prepared false identity papers for two of” the men who broke into the Democratic National Committee’s offices in the Watergate complex. The break-in set off a chain of events that result in the ouster of CIA Director Richard Helms. “Helms,” Kinzer explains, “was Gottlieb’s number one promoter and enabler and sponsor for 20 years.” Nixon fired Helms in February 1973. Gottlieb retired four months later.After the CIA, Gottlieb took steps to reinvent himself. The long-married father of four joined an arts council in his Virginia town, acted in local holiday plays and worked with children who had speech problems. “It definitely seems from the recollections of people that knew him in his last 20 years that he was a very gentle soul, kind of an eco-hippy,” Kinzer says. “Nobody had any idea of what he had done in the past, but he was tormented by it.”Gottlieb died in March 1999, and when a cause of death wasn’t announced, at least two observers came to believe that he killed himself to derail intensifying legal inquiries into his actions. Eric Olson—Frank’s son—and Sidney Bender, a lawyer for a man who says his life was ruined by a Gottlieb dosing, had both tried to hold Gottlieb to account while he was alive. Instead, Kinzer writes, “they drank a toast to the death of a man they considered a monster.” Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

The Suburbs Are Kicking the Animals Out. Enter the Animal Rescue Squad.

The Suburbs Are Kicking the Animals Out. Enter the Animal Rescue Squad.ATLANTA -- In a small suburban park on a muggy morning a few months ago, a woman in elbow-length gloves was armed with a net, a loaf of bread and a tall cardboard box, all in hopes of catching an elusive goose.The goose, whose left leg was tightly wound in fishing line, walked with a pronounced hobble; as it swam, the leg dragged listlessly in the water. Yet despite its condition, animal instinct prevailed. The goose simply refused to be caught.Cindy Rooker, the would-be captor, hoped to retrieve the recalcitrant Canada goose, tuck it into the cardboard box she had brought, and drive it to a wildlife rehabilitation center a few hours away in South Carolina, where the bird would receive medical attention.But after several attempts, Rooker knew it was time to call it a day. Birds are easily stressed, and waterfowl have an inconvenient and frustrating knack for flying right into the center of a pond. Also, she didn't bring a kayak this time.A police officer who lives in Canton, Georgia, Rooker, 56, volunteers for the Wildlife Resources and Education Network (WREN). She started working with the organization at the beginning of the summer, and has since completed about 10 transports, crisscrossing the northern half of the state with the likes of orphaned baby opossums and injured hawks in the cab of her Nissan pickup truck.WREN connects people like Rooker -- committed animal lovers in the Southeast with spare time, spare gas money and an empty back seat -- with wildlife rehabbers and veterinary clinics that lack the resources to transport an animal on their own.In other words, Rooker and her fellow transporters are Mother Nature's unpaid Uber drivers.Robert Jones, an animal lover whose other pursuits include military history and small-business consulting, started WREN with Liz Crandall in 2016. The two met at the Southeastern Raptor Center at Auburn University, where Crandall worked and Jones volunteered and, later, interned.They formed WREN as a wildlife educational initiative, but with time, sharpened their focus largely on transportation after seeing the same challenge day after day: More people seemed to be stumbling upon injured wildlife every passing year, but few wanted to transport the animals to rehabbers themselves."It's a really large gap," said Jones, 34, who now lives in Jonesborough, Tennessee, and is the executive director of the Tilted Tavern Animal Sanctuary. Nonprofits like the raptor center don't always have the resources or staff to send someone out to fetch an animal, especially one that's hours away.That's where WREN -- and a handful of similar organizations, like the Connecticut Emergency Animal Response Service -- step in.When I first spoke with Crandall, 46, by phone, she had just finished up "a fawn call" (which, at least in this instance, is not a pun). Crandall, who is the assistant director of the Tilted Tavern Animal Sanctuary, said that she fields roughly a dozen calls a day and manages a handful of transports each week, often across state lines.That number is increasing each year, for reasons both dismal and hopeful: While humans are pushing into wildlife territory more and more, some of them are also becoming more aware of, and attuned to, the wildlife in their backyards."I think people are more conscientious," Crandall said. "They want to help more."WREN uses Slack to communicate to its volunteers and manage logistics, like making sure each transporter has an appropriate container for the animal (typically a cardboard box or a lidded Rubbermaid bin with holes for oxygen).Driving a captured animal requires total silence in the car -- no phone conversations, no podcasts or music -- sometimes for hours on end."It takes a lot for people to commit to something where they'll get a call maybe once a month, or maybe every day," Crandall said. Working with nature has inherent challenges and frustrations. It requires patience and flexibility, not to mention thick skin: Not every case has a happy ending.One of the organizations WREN works with is the Chattahoochee Nature Center, where Kathryn Dudeck works as wildlife director. Dudeck said that the center fields 400 to 500 phone calls a month, and takes in more than 650 animals for rehab each year.Those cases range from natural causes, like nestlings blown out of their nests in a hurricane, to injury explicitly at the hands of humans: an owl with buckshot in its wings, a red-tailed hawk hit by a car. "Needless to say, Mother Nature didn't invent the vehicle or the gun," Dudeck said. "So, we have a moral obligation to assist."David Crawford is the founder of Animal Help Now, a 911-like website and smartphone app that links people to wildlife rehabbers and transporters like WREN. App usage has increased every year since its inception in 2012, he said."As we expand and build new roads and build new suburbs, you have a lot more interaction with animals," he said. Then, he added, there is climate change: more destructive hurricanes will yield more injuries and habitat destruction; prolonged droughts, raging forest fires and searing heat waves will continue to push desperate animals further into human habitats."People are going to be interacting with wildlife a lot more than they are right now," said Crawford. He estimates that by the end of 2019, Animal Help Now will have been used in 40,000 wildlife emergencies across the country.A week after the first attempt, Rooker was back at Laurel Park. This time, there was a scrum of additional helpers, including Crandall, along with two kayaks. There were, however, no geese.Just before the group split off to search nearby ponds for the flock, Darcell Patterson, a sneaker-shod woman, intercepted the volunteers. Patterson, 66, has walked around the park every day for the last four years, she said, and brings dried food pellets with her to "establish rapport" with the resident ducks and geese.She matter-of-factly informed the group that the injured goose is named Gary, and that his leg has been wrapped in that line for a couple of years. Gary, it seems, can survive on his own, and has not yet been ostracized from his avian comrades.Crandall decided to let Gary be for now, knowing he was under Patterson's watchful eye. As long as the bird can still fly, walk and eat, Crandall explained, the stress of relocation isn't justifiable yet."Gary's got friends in high places," Patterson said.While it wasn't the Disney-worthy victory that the volunteers may have had in mind this go-round, it was still a victory by their standards."Sometimes letting wild be wild is the right thing to do," Jones said. "You teach people what situations need our intervention, and what situations don't."This article originally appeared in The New York Times.(C) 2019 The New York Times Company

To fly or not to fly? The climate question

 Cache   


I am a retired Catholic. The Church hierarchy sometimes trades in the curious institution of special dispensation, the granting of a waiver to allow otherwise frowned-upon conduct. The most famous incident of special dispensation in popular culture took place in The Godfather III.


In the otherwise-unfortunate movie, an aging Michael Corleone is granted special dispensation for his family's three-movie legacy of drugs, prostitution, gambling, and leaving severed horses' heads in peoples' beds. All he had to do is write a seven-figure check to the Archdiocese of New York and the score was evened with a forgiving-but-cash-strapped Almighty.

Lately there's been much angst and breast-beating among climate scientists and activists about the use of air travel to do one's work. "Flight shaming" has become something of a cause in recent years: Imposing guilt on oneself or others for the carbon footprint of flying.

There's nothing wrong with a little introspection on this: Industry estimates credit passenger air travel with between 2 percent and 3 percent of all greenhouse gas impact.

However, I'd like to propose a more honorable form of special dispensation for anyone who wears a hair shirt due to taking a cheap seat on Southwest. Relax and enjoy the flight, along with a record 31.6 million other Americans this weekend. They apparently didn't get the memo. Instead, channel your angst onto the airlines, which have been slow to fit their carbon footprint into the overhead bin.

Climate communicators, the world desperately needs to hear from you, and more often than not, you'll need to go to them. There's no personal shame in using the best-available form of long-haul transit. If it's hypocrisy, it's a trivial one at best – far less insincere than the people who would negate your moral authority because you didn't travel to New York or Madrid by stagecoach or Roman trireme.

Greta Thunberg, the Swedish teenager who became an instant climate celebrity this year, famously traveled to the U.N.'s Climate Week by crossing the Atlantic by sailboat. The two-week trip garnered some headlines. She's currently on the return trip, which has predictably generated less press, as she sails toward Lisbon and an appearance at climate talks in Madrid in early December.

Her media lightning having already been captured in a bottle, Greta's next long stretch at sea will have little symbolic or media value. The four weeks she spent at sea crossing the Atlantic twice would next be best spent rallying the troops or otherwise raising her quiet, dignified brand of hell.

Some climate scientists have found their happy medium. A website called NoFlyClimateSci is a gathering spot for scientists and their fellow non-travelers to contemplate their flying habits. A scientist like Georgia Tech's Kim Cobb, who has become something of a rockstar climate communicator, now schedules academic presentations remotely, but doesn't invoke an ascetic self-ban on air travel. It would make it pretty hard to make connections between Atlanta and the South Pacific corals she studies.

The scientists' partial no-fly zone may strike the right chord: Fly less, but only if it doesn't compromise your vital work. Should a Nobel Prize or Presidential Medal of Freedom await you (not likely for now), don't phone it in. If a potential million-person rally take place on the National Mall, don't make it a million person conference call.

Be thoughtful about your travel. But be more thoughtful about your goal.

Vasquez-USA TODAY SportsThere has been a ton of debate going around about whether or not Ohio State QB Dwayne Haskins will be the 2nd QB selected in this draft, or if he is about to experience a fall to the back half of the 1st round or even further. The rumors have been full swing on Haskins with him going anywhere from the Giants at 6 to the Raiders at 24 Charles Woodson Jersey , the question I pose to you is where would you consider it acceptable to draft a QB who likely wouldn’t see the field in the first season? Is there any point where you would be ok with the Raiders going after Haskins in this draft? The huge needs Oakland has all over the field makes drafting a QB a tough pill to swallow for many to see them spend a high pick when they already have Derek Carr. There is no doubt that they need many playmakers yet on both sides of the field, QB is not tops on the list of things the Raiders are in desperate need for.However, there is always a shopper when it comes to quarterbacks in the NFL and getting a good one is a premium that can pay dividends in many ways. Dwayne Haskins would be one hell of a back up plan to Derek Carr if he does struggle in 2019, and he could easily demand a premium in trade if Carr regains his franchise QB status. The one fact that we all agree on is that the NFL is a cold business, and if the team thinks they can improve they will do it no matter who they already have in place. If Jon Gruden is not completely sold on the future of the franchise under Carr then you better believe that he’d be willing to spend a high pick on someone he considered an upgrade.That brings us back to the rumors swirling around Dwayne Haskins’ possible fall in the draft. As good of a prospect as he appears to be, he only has one starting season under his belt and he is competing with a 3 ½ year starter in Drew Lock of Missouri to be the 2nd QB picked in 2019. To make matters worse for Haskins, he might not even be 3rd because of the sudden hype lifting Duke QB Daniel Jones into the 1st round conversation as well.ESPN’s Todd McShay touched on this topic on the morning show ‘Get Up’ the other day when he spoke about the possibility of other QB’s leap frogging Haskins due to his lack of experience. Though he does say that he ultimately sees Haskins going in the top 10, he sees the best fit with the Giants who could easily pass on taking a QB at 6 because they have another pick coming at 17th overall.“If any of these quarterbacks are going to fall a little bit, it might be Haskins,” Todd McShay said on ESPN’s ‘Get Up!’ “It will be interesting to see. I keep hearing the Giants may not be in love with Haskins. I put him there because it’s kind of the only place in the top 10 I felt good about putting him. I do think, ultimately, he’ll wind up going somewhere in that range. But it may be a team moving up. The Giants could just pass on him and wind up taking Drew Lock a little bit later with that 17th pick.”That isn’t the only NFL insider that believes that the 10-17 range is entirely possible for the Ohio State QB either, Adam Schefter also said he ultimately believes that will be the range that Haskins will be picked in as well. He spoke on the issue on Sirius XM radio, and he also said that some teams don’t even have a 1st round grade on Haskins going into this draft.This chatter hasn’t escaped the attention of Haskins, though he says he couldn’t care less about it. That’s actually a great attitude to take about the situation because if you can’t control it then why worry about it.“I couldn’t care less,” Haskins said on ESPN’s First Take. “I did well at the Combine, did well at meetings at the Combine. I threw the ball well at Pro Day and I did well at my visits and my meetings. I did what I had to do as far as this process. It’s just been a long time. I’m ready to go play football again. Draft is next week, so we’ll see what happens.”There is also the opposite opinion of Haskins’ draft stock with Trent Dilfer stating that he believes he is Tom Brady-ish in his intelligence and Bar Stool Sports put out this bold tweet on Haskins’ behalf.That brings us back to the Raiders who very well could decide to take a chance on Dwayne Haskins if the price was right for them. He is a tall QB with a quick release that could translate very well into Jon Gruden’s quick strike offense. Though Haskins wasn’t pressured often in Urban Meyer’s Ohio State offense, he did have phenomenal stats in his one year starting with him completing over 70% of his passes and throwing 50 touchdowns.If the Giants do pass on him for a different signal caller in this draft then the Raiders might be a great fit for him to sit for a season and learn from a QB guru coach in Gruden. It also could help motivate Derek Carr into a better season with him knowing without a doubt in that circumstance that he needs to step up or he would be being shipped out.What do you think Raider Nation? At what point do you think it’d be worth it to consider Dwayne Haskins in this draft or is it just too high of a pick to use on a player that likely wouldn’t contribute in his rookie season? There is a lot to like about Haskins, but is he worth a high pick in this draft for the Raiders?

Are ‘Vaping’ And ‘E-cigarettes’ The Same, And Should All These Products Be Avoided?

 Cache   
As concerns over vaping continue to grow, researchers and public health officials are investigating the causes of more than 40 deaths and 2,000 illnesses. It’s confusing even for experts. The term “e-cigarette” refers to a battery-powered device used to inhale an aerosol that typically, but not always, contains nicotine, along with flavorings and other chemicals, but not tobacco. The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recognize e-cigarettes as a broad category that includes a variety of different products that operate similarly and contain similar components. So, “e-cigarettes,” “vapes,” “vape pens,” “Juul,” etc., all refer to the same class of products, with “e-cigarette” being the product itself, and “vaping” referring to use of the product. The devices can have different uses. Although e-cigarettes in the U.S. are regulated as tobacco products rather than smoking cessation tools, Juul – the biggest maker of these devices – has

Right Whale Spotted Off Florida Coast

 Cache   
The first right whale of this year’s calving season has been spotted off the coast of Florida. Surveys to spot the endangered mammal have not started yet, but fishermen saw a whale last weekend. Biologist Barb Zoodsma with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Fisheries said boaters who see whales need to back away and leave them alone. Repeated encounters with humans are an added strain on them as they struggle to survive. “It’s hard to do, these are awesome animals,” she said. “It’s hard to do but we just can’t love them to death. We’ve just got to give them space.” People who spot a right whale should also call 1-877-WHALE-HELP so NOAA can alert other ships in the area. Zoodsma said pregnant females tend to arrive earlier, so it is possible the whale seen in Florida is getting ready to give birth.

Hurricanes And Tariffs Hit Georgia Pecans

 Cache   
The end of the year outlook for Georgia’s main nut crop is mixed. And you can blame both the weather and Chinese tariffs. Southwest Georgia pecan growers are harvesting as little as 20% of their average crop this year thanks to Hurricane Michael, the storm that downed thousands of trees in 2018. That’s according to Lenny Wells, pecan expert with the UGA Agricultural Extension Service. And while he says, sure, that sounds bad, he’s says he’s still feeling pretty good about 2020. “Historically, if you look at what’s happened following a major hurricane like that, the year right after the hurricane is usually pretty bad. And then the next year after that is surprisingly good,” Wells said. That’s because the trees that are left after the storm will have had an extra year to spread their crowns and grow new fruit bearing limbs. Plus, growers are planting new trees. Still, Wells says it will be at least five years before Southwest Georgia growers are back on their feet. Meanwhile, Chinese
          

Department of Education Updates List Of Schools Getting Special Aid

 Cache   
The Georgia Department of Education has updated its list of Georgia schools that receive special academic support from the state. The federal Every Student Succeeds Act mandates that states keep track of high poverty schools or at-risk groups of students that struggle academically. That way state education departments can target extra aid to those schools or demographics within a school population. The good news is that this year 47 Georgia schools rolled off the list, including five in Fulton county and two in rural Macon County. Of the schools still slated for help, most are in urban districts in Atlanta and the state’s second tier cities, places like Augusta and Columbus. A handful of state-run charter schools are also of concern, including Cirrus Academy in Bibb County, founded as an alternative to neighboring elementary schools which will also continue receiving extra resources from the state.

Willow's Epitaph

 Cache   


Willow left us September 20, 2019.  Twp months ago today.  Here are some random thoughts about my little babe.

(opps!  If you are re-reading this you will see that Willow last living dater is a month earlier than I said.  How time flies!)

Everything in this house reminds me of Willow.

Willow effected our living habits and routines very much so.  We are going through a readjustment period now.

For instance, when I pick up the barber tools she yipped with joy.  She loved for Anna to cut my hair.  While I was being barbered on the deck, Willow would run back and forth up the stairs.   Go down to the ground and sniff around and then come up and check  too see what we are doing and go back downstairs.   No more.

When we went to Costco we all ways bought a roasted chicken for $4.99 and when we got home Anna would strip the chicken and the Willow-Edible. not edible-to-us parts was put into a canister and mixed with her dog food for the next few days

When we first adopted Willow she was about one year old.  Our back yard was crowded with furry little animals such as chipmunks, squirrels, and rabbits.  She ate them all.  After so many years the furry little vermin learned not to get close to our back yard.   What they did not know that Willow has aged in the past couple of years and now she was feeble and blind.  She still enjoyed the outdoors but prefer to go out when I could go out and bodyguard her.



Also when we first adopted her at the Atlanta Humane Society one of the volunteers told us she has been returned twice.  She sort of insinuated that 3 times and she  is out.

I think that is because about a year ago, at night, in the dark, I took her for last bathroom walk  for the night and a big dog came up out of the dark and tried to get her to play.  Willow snapped at it.  I'm sure her point of view was that she was blind and she was too old to play.  Then the big dog leap on her growling and snapping.  And I jumped on the dog growling and swinging fists.  I hit the dog in his face several good knocks and finally it ran off.

When we first adopted Willow she was a runner.  and very lively and full of energy.   Anytime the gate was left opened she would run free.  I could not catch her.  I just had to sit down and wait until she smelled everything in every yard near by and disappear for a while.   When she got good and damn ready she returned on her own.  My only fear with her running across yards and streets is that I didn't think she was that wise on how traffic operated.... like could run over her and smash her.

I think Willow was an excellent human body-language reader.  If we were discussing whether to go someplace or stay there she would get in a position where her view point she could see both of us and our interactions and facial expressions.  Sometimes She knew what we would decide what we were going to do before we did.  If she came to the conclusion we were leaving she would walk back to her sleeping area.  Sometimes if it was "iffy" and we "might include her, she would whine and do her little dance.

If she saw that one of us was upset or hurt physically she would lick us, in the wounded spot and console us.  I think sometimes she knew her saliva had a healing ensign.



Once before daylight she and I was running.  She was wearing he leash.  I tripped on a little blue embedded road mark and fell with a smack.  My hand, leg, and face was bleeding.  When I hit the pavement I think I let go of the leash.  Normally, that would be an excellent time for her to take off running.  But she stayed by me, trembling.  After I calmed her down she started licking me with her medicine.

In her last six months when I took her out for a bathroom use I had to help her down and up our steps going to the back yard.

After she died for weeks the little furry critters still stayed away.  Then I suppose her particular smell went away and now I see chipmunks and squirrels in the yard again.

I still sense her presence in the house.  And I even hear her collar jingle, or maybe it is my imagination.


Willow was a diabetic.  We gave her two insulin shots a day.   I think she knew the shots were good for her.

She is the last of our line of hairy best friends.  I am too old to outlive another one.   We loved her and  have fond memories we will miss her deeply.

Her insulin, vet sugar level checks, boarding fees and misc now probably adds up to over two grand a year.  Financially,  Willow absence is almost like getting a raise.





          

Week 13 Preview: Turkey day action and a MNF beat-down

 Cache   

Liz Loza and Matt Harmon are back with a special Wednesday edition of the fantasy football podcast, ahead of the turkey apocalypse otherwise known as Thanksgiving!


[Play in Yahoo’s NFL $200K Baller. $10 entry fee and $20K to first place]


But Thanksgiving is on Thursday, how about that you-know-what whoopin’ the Ravens put on the Rams on Monday night? Liz & Matt gush about Lamar, lament the Rams & preview the NFC West matchup between the Rams & Cardinals later in the week. Are we sure Arizona is the worst team in the division? (05:00)


Back to the holiday spirit, our experts run through all the Turkey Day action, starting with ... ugh ... Bears vs. Lions. In the event that the questionable Jeff Driskel can’t take the field on Thursday, his backup is, and this is not a mistake, David Blough. Blerg. Is there anything positive to take away from this matchup. Our experts try to find the marshmallows in this rotten bowl of sweet potatoes. (09:05)


They then move on to Buffalo vs. Dallas in what might be the most interesting matchup of the holiday. Both teams have been criticized for being weak against squads over .500. Which team will silence the doubters on Thursday? (12:01)


Finally, our football dinner ends with a dessert of New Orleans vs. Atlanta. Can New Orleans prove their surprising loss to the dirty birds two weeks ago was just an aberration? Or will this flightless Falcons team put up one last fight against a division rival before they pack it in for the season? (19:03)


After the Turkey Day discussion, Liz and Matt look towards the weekend and preview each game from the remainder of Week 13 and tell you the one thing you should look for in each game. (25:45)

166: Indoor-Outdoor Living Series: Integrity is Key

 Cache   
Chris Guido, Owner of Guido Materials, and Patrick Gruetzmacher, CEO of Summit Automation, join us on this episode 166 of Art of Construction.   We are so excited to be offering you this Deep Dive Series, Indoor-Outdoor Living brought to you by Summit Automation. In this series we will be diving deep into Big Doors! Many words are used to describe this hot trend like Moving Walls, Scenic Doors and alike, but no matter which term we use it is undeniable that floor to ceiling glass is the new big thing in home construction. What does this mean for contractors and affiliates? What adaptions must we make to take this new approach to design and construction head-on and use it to grow our business? Joined by PJ Gruetmacher, CEO of Summit Automation, we will be interviewing three owners of window & door dealerships across the US to find out the answers to those questions and so much more!   In this second episode, Chris Guido tells us all about the story of Guido Materials, his style of leadership, and how his company is tackling the expansion of the Big Door movement. As glass panel sizes continue to get bigger, jobsite safety during installation becomes a bigger issue as well.  That is why Chris’s team at Guido Materials heavily vets each Big Door project long before they’re on site to ensure a safety issue doesn’t arise later on. Along these same lines of increased safety, PJ dives a little deeper into how Summit Automation is working to ensure their products pass safety certifications that guarantee these huge moving walls won’t ever hurt someone in your home.   Ultimately, Chris and PJ both agreed that when it comes to these new, bigger projects, integrity is key. As homeowners continue to want to go bigger, building in these new Big Door products requires increased levels of coordination and communication between the builder, manufacturer and subcontractors. It also means sticking to your word if you want to be successful.    Join Devon as he goes on a journey with Ben and PJ outside Window Dealer Days at Glass Build America 2019 in Atlanta to uncover all there is to know about the new Indoor-Outdoor Living Movement!

Angelina wachtte de avond. Ze was van plan om haar jongere zus Jessica voor de lunch te ontmoeten. Zij scheidden een maand geleden. Ze werd gretig verwacht te horen over de nieuwe avonturen van haar zus. Ze hoopte dat ze kon lopen langs het strand, als de zachte regen zou stoppen. Het weer bleef winderig en nat. Het alternatieve plan was om terug te rijden naar haar geheime kasteel aan de Franse kant van de grens.

Enslaved Couples Faced Wrenching Separations, or Even Choosing Family Over Freedom

Loved ones could be sold away at any time. Here’s how married couples coped.

Photo: Soldier and Companion, c.1861-65 (tintype with brass mat & leather case), American Photographer, (19th century)/Detroit Institute of Arts, USA/Founders Society Purchase, DeRoy Photographic Acquisition Endowment Fund and Coville Photographic Fund/Bridgeman Images

(History.com) For enslaved African-Americans, the ideal of marriage as an enduring lifelong bond was rarely an option. When couples stood before clergy or other officiants, they couldn?t share the traditional, age-old promises of permanent fidelity because their vows had a built-in asterisk: ?Do you take this woman or this man to be your spouse?until death or distance do you part??

Understanding those altered words, couples married with trepidation, fully aware of the turmoil that might result from trying to maintain and nurture their ties while enslaved. Still, they continually took leaps of faith, driven by burning passions to form families of their choosing?and create fundamental human bonds that could help soften the harsh conditions of human bondage.

These leaps were necessary because, for nearly 250 years, the vast majority of African-Americans were considered chattel property. Within this system, white slaveholders made all the decisions: They determined whether and when enslaved people could wed. They split them apart when finances dictated. They sometimes chose who would marry who. Or brazenly violated enslaved couples? marriages by forcing the women to serve as their own concubines. And those in political power set laws that made it exceedingly difficult for freed black people to reside for long near their still-enslaved families without being sucked back into the harrowing state of bondage themselves.

Since marriage was both a civil right and a religious rite afforded only to those with legal standing, enslaved people, who had no recognizable standing in society, could not make contracts of any kind. Their marriages were neither legally binding, nor sanctified by the Christian church, which routinely allowed one of its holiest rites to be tarnished by power, money and whim. Property owners were its leading constituents, and their rights prevailed over human rights. So enslaved people were forced to settle for conditional unions that could be torn asunder at any time.

Decades After Racial Strife, Returning to A&M

Forty-five years ago, Bill Mahomes endured suspicion and scorn as the first black student to graduate from Texas A&M University’s Corps of Cadets. Now, he helps run the school.

Bill Mahomes

Bill Mahomes in his office at Mahomes & Bolden PC in Dallas. Mahomes was the first black cadet to make it through the Texas A&M Corps of Cadets and is now a member of the Texas A&M System Board of Regents. (Mark Graham)

(Texas Tribune) Two decades after becoming the first black student at Texas A&M to spend four years in the school’s Corps of Cadets, Bill Mahomes received a call from an old classmate. They hadn?t spoken since graduation, but the man wanted to apologize.

He had screamed at Mahomes once ? not uncommon in A&M?s massive, ROTC-like military program. But this instance had crossed the line. Words were too harsh. Racial slurs may have been used. The incident had weighed on the classmate ever since.

Mahomes listened to the apology but didn?t know what to say. At first, he couldn?t even remember the incident. That kind of thing happened so often at A&M in the 1960s that he usually endured it and moved on.

The apology, however, left a more lasting impression. Looking back, the 68-year-old lawyer says, it was one of many healing moments that helped him reconnect with his university ? a school he kept his distance from after graduating during the painful civil rights era. (more)


Azellia White, trailblazer for African-American women in aviation, dies at 106

Native of Gonzalez, Texas

Azellia White(The Washington Post) Azellia White, who said she found freedom in the skies, becoming one of the first African American women to earn a pilot?s license in the United States, died Sept. 14 at a nursing home in Sugar Land, Tex. She was 106.

Her death was reported Nov. 18 in the London Daily Telegraph but had previously gone largely unnoted in the U.S. and international news media. A great-niece, Emeldia Bailey, confirmed her death and said she did not know the cause.

Mrs. White, the daughter of a sharecropper and a midwife, was drawn to aviation by her husband, Hulon ?Pappy? White, a mechanic who served during World War II in Tuskegee, Ala., as a mechanic for the storied unit of black military pilots known as the Tuskegee Airmen. (more)

As a pro, he was the first pick in the 1968 NBA draft by the San Diego (later Houston) Rockets, and would also star for the Baltimore/Washington Bullets. Hayes retired in 1984 as the second-leading scorer in league history with 27,313 points, was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1990, and was named one of the NBA?s 50 greatest players in 1996.

Baylor University logoOn this day in 1963, Baylor University?s athletic council announced it would integrate all of the school?s athletic teams, effective with the opening of the spring semester, Jan. 30, 1964. At the time, the school had no black students, but had announced its intention to open enrollment. John Bridgers, head football coach and athletic director said, ?We don?t know of any Negro athletes right now that we?re interested in, but there may be some we will want to look at and investigate?there are some tremendous Negro athletes all over the country.? Bridgers said he personally agrees with the action of the trustees and the athletic council. ?I feel it?s something that should be, from a standpoint of being right.? Ironically, Baylor was the first program in the Southwest Conference to have a black player take the field when running back John Westbrook, a walk-on, carried the ball twice in the Bears victory over Syracuse University on Sept. 10, 1966. A week later, Southern Methodist University?s Jerry Levias became the SWC?s first black scholarship player.

1960s Revisited

October 1st, 2019

Over the last few years our society has spent a great amount of energy reliving and analyzing the 1960s. Every event ? from the deaths of the Kennedy brothers, MLK and Malcolm X, landing on the moon, war protests, and the hippie revolution ? has been scrutinized through the microscope of history. The interesting thing about history?s microscope, though, is that it often blots out the nasty and the ugly. The concept of revisionism centers?(more)

The first 40 minutes of “Ariel” make this seem like the most generically, palatable episode of Firefly. It’s a fun but simple heist episode. Then comes the twist. The ending gives us a deeper look at what motivates and drives the characters of Malcolm Reynolds and Jayne. We talk about keelhauling a crew member and a touching way of asking for forgiveness after betraying the crew.

FIVE MINUTE SHOW SUMMARY
Episode 9: Ariel - Written by Jose Molina

Plot synopsis:

Marc - The Serenity is headed for Ariel, a core planet of the Alliance, because Inara is due for her annual Companion physical exam and license renewal. Following an incident in which River attacks him, Jayne demands that she and Simon be left on Ariel. Mal quashes any talk of leaving people behind, but privately warns Simon that River has to be kept under control. Simon acknowledges that his sister is getting worse.

Mikey - Simon approaches the crew with a job: he wants to get into the hospital in Ariel's capital city in order to scan River's brain with an advanced piece of medical equipment, and he needs the crew to get him inside. As payment, he will tell the crew how to steal valuable medical supplies undetected (they will be replaced automatically by hospital machines).

Marc - Simon drugs himself and River so they appear dead, allowing the crew to enter Ariel city's hospital using a scrapped medical shuttle they refurbish and fake EMT IDs. The group then split up, with Jayne guarding Simon as he analyses River's condition while Mal and Zoe steal drugs from the hospital. However, Jayne betrays the Tams, placing a call to an Alliance officer who agrees to pay their bounty.

Mikey - Once awakened, Simon dresses as a doctor and takes River to the diagnostic ward with Jayne. There, Simon discovers that River's brain has been surgically operated on many times, disabling her ability to suppress emotions. With the analysis complete, Jayne leads them to a rear entrance, where they are arrested by Federal marshals, Jayne included, the Alliance officer deciding to keep the reward money for himself. Meanwhile, Mal and Zoe return to the medical shuttle with the loot, but realize that Jayne and the Tams are late so head back into the hospital to find them.

Marc - The three prisoners are moved to a holding area where Jayne and Simon overpower their escorts and escape. Shortly afterwards, two blue-gloved men arrive to take custody of the Tams, using a mysterious sonic device to kill all the marshals when the pair learn that some of them talked to the Tams. Meanwhile, a terrified River leads Jayne and Simon to a locked door, which is opened from the other side by Mal and Zoe, enabling the group to escape.

Mikey - Inara returns to Serenity just as the medical shuttle arrives. Once everyone else has left the cargo area, Mal knocks Jayne out. Jayne awakens to find himself in an open airlock as the ship begins to leave the atmosphere. Jayne eventually confesses that he betrayed Simon and River, but denies double crossing Mal. Mal tells him that what he did was the same as betraying him. As Mal turns to leave, Jayne asks him not to tell his shipmates about the betrayal. Mal closes the outer door, sparing Jayne's life.

A TEMPERLEY SE LE ESCAPÓ SOBRE EL FINAL E IGUALÓ CON ATLANTA

 Cache   
EL CELESTE DEJÓ PASAR UNA BUENA OPORTUNIDAD DE SUBIRSE A LA PUNTA DE LA ZONA A DE LA PRIMERA NACIONAL AL IGUALAR ESTE MARTES 1-1 EN SU VISITA A VILLA CRESPO.
Temperley disputó este martes un encuentro lleno de emociones frente a Atlanta en el que igualaron 1-1, por la fecha 14 de la Zona A de la Primera Nacional. A raíz de la parda conseguida en Villa Crespo, el Celeste dejó pasar la oportunidad de alcanzar en la cima del torneo al Bohemio. El gol para el Gasolero lo anotó en el arranque de la primera etapa Lucas Baldunciel, mientras que Eugenio Olivera, debutante en el local, estampó la igualdad a poco de la finalización del partido. Por otra parte, en un encuentro que tuvieron promediando el complemento, Gonzalo Asís, del Celeste y Juan Rago, arquero de Atlanta, se fueron expulsados. El cierre del primer semestre de la temporada para Temperley será el martes próximo cuando reciba, por la fecha 15, a Ferro. El objetivo para los de Walter Perazzo será sostener la marcha positiva e irse con una victoria al descanso de verano. EL PARTIDO Temperley y Atlanta protagonizaron un encuentro de ida y vuelta en el que ambos buscaron el arco rival. En el primer tiempo esa tendencia fue más clara ya que la posesión la repartieron, aunque el local no generó chances claras. El Celeste golpeó primero gracias al tanto de Baldunciel a los 16 minutos de juego, el volante empalmó una volea imposible de atajar y rompió la paridad. Con ese triunfo parcial, el Gasolero era líder del torneo, asimismo en el complemento las cosas cambiaron. Cómodos con el 1-0, los de Perazzo retrasaron las líneas en los 45 finales, por lo que Atlanta aprovechó, pero tampoco fue tan claro. A diez del final, Asís y Rago tuvieron un entredicho y vieron la tarjeta roja. El Bohemio no tenía más cambios por lo que cada aproximación a su área fue de peligro a favor de Temperley. En esa vorágine, una desatención compartida entre Matías Castro y Alarcón le sirvió el empate al debutante Olivera, quien punteó la pelota hacia la red frente a la errónea salida del arquero del equipo de Turdera. Finalmente repartieron puntos en un duelo entre dos conjuntos que les gusta proponer y mostraron en cancha porque son partícipes de la parte alta de la tabla de posiciones. LO QUE DEJÓ Posterior al encuentro, el entrenador del Celeste habló con los medios presentes y valoró el juego de su equipo. “Me voy muy conforme con el partido que realizamos, tuvimos muchas situaciones claras”, indicó. Por otra parte, analizó la levantada del grupo y enfatizó en la importancia de terminar el año peleando la punta: “Las metas eran sumar para escalar posiciones, clasificar a la Copa Argentina y terminar el año lo más cerca del puntero. Hoy se vio un equipo serio, agresivo”. LEONARDO REULA (INFOREGION)

Wrong Richard Spencer! MSNBC Apologizes for Showing White Supremacist Instead of Ousted Navy Secretary

 Cache   

MSNBC’s “AM Joy” mixed up their Richard Spencers on Sunday morning when they accidentally put up a picture of white supremacist Richard Spencer during a piece about Richard V. Spencer, the former Navy secretary who was fired by the Trump Administration over the president’s decision to reverse the demotion of Navy SEAL Eddie Gallagher.

“We are very deeply sorry for that mistake,” host Joy-Ann Reid said on the broadcast shortly before ending the segment.

Reid and her guests were discussing the Washington Post op-ed written by former Sec. Spencer in which he criticized Trump’s intervention in the court martial of Gallagher, who was found guilty of multiple war crimes, including posing for a picture with the corpse of a teenage ISIS fighter. Gallagher was stripped of his SEAL Trident status and demoted to petty officer first class, but Trump used his powers as commander in chief to reverse the demotion.

“The Navy will NOT be taking away Warfighter and Navy Seal Eddie Gallagher’s Trident Pin,” Trump tweeted last week. “This case was handled very badly from the beginning. Get back to business!”

Spencer, who was nominated Naval Secretary by Trump in 2017, was then fired by Defense Secretary Mark Esper for going outside the chain of command to request a further review process of Gallagher’s SEAL status with the White House. In his Post op-ed, Spencer acknowledged he was wrong to go outside the chain of command but called Trump’s intervention a “shocking and unprecedented intervention in a low-level review.”

“It was also a reminder that the president has very little understanding of what it means to be in the military, to fight ethically or to be governed by a uniform set of rules and practices,” he wrote.

But while discussing that op-ed, MSNBC presented a quote from Richard V. Spencer’s op-ed next to a picture of the other Richard Spencer, who also made headlines this past month after fellow alt-right personality turned rival Milo Yiannopoulos leaked a tape on YouTube that he claimed contained audio of the white supremacist using racist slurs against Jews and African-Americans. The audio was recorded in the immediate aftermath of the 2017 Charlottesville riots, with Spencer vowing to return to the Virginia town for additional far-right protests.

Watch the MSNBC mixup in the tweet above.

Kibbles and Picks 2019 - Week 13

Kibbles and Picks 2019 - Week 13

And look at that – I’m back on top!

Granted, it’s just one game, thanks to my 10-4 week. Stella did just fine at 9-5, but it wasn’t quite enough. And so I’ve regained my lead. Again – good weeks for both of us … just slightly better for me.

That could all change pretty quickly here in Week 13. Stella and I are at odds on eight games – fully half of the full 16-game slate. That’s a lot of room for one of us to make a move, although with the even number, we could just as easily wind up with another push.

We’ll start on Thanksgiving, where Stella and I disagree on two of the three contests.

First up is the game in Detroit, where I have the Lions holding serve at home against the Bears. While I don’t necessarily love the Lions offense, I feel like they’re due for a good win on Turkey Day. Plus, the Bears haven’t looked like world-beaters over the last few weeks. Stella thinks my hunch is nonsense; she doesn’t have any real affection for the Bears, but she’s pretty sure that Chicago will be able to take down the Lions with little issue. We agree, however, that this will be a bad game.

In an even more hunchy pick, I’m taking Buffalo to win in Dallas against the Cowboys. The Bills defense has had some hiccups in the last few weeks, but they still have something to offer. And I’m thinking that Buffalo QB Josh Allen will be able to handle his business; the Cowboys have struggled with some injury issues. Stella likes the Cowboys here; she thinks that Dak Prescott is the best player on either team and that he will have little problem against even this strong Bills defense. And don’t sleep on Zeke Elliott, either.

Next, in maybe the most brazen pick of this year’s entire Kibbles and Picks season thus far, Stella is picking the Bengals to win their first game of the year. I went with the Jets, even though the Jets are not very good, because they’re riding high after their big win over Oakland and QB Sam Darnold looks like he might be figuring some stuff out. Stella refuses to back down from this pick; she feels that the Bengals are not going to go 0-16 and that this is perhaps their best shot at the W. With rumors swirling that Andy Dalton is returning to his place under center, she’s ready to roll the dice.

In a game with potential playoff implications, I’m going with the Colts to win at home against the Titans. I know that Indy is dealing with some major injuries – the hand issue for running back Marlon Mack foremost among them – but I still like them to hang in there and score enough to eke out a narrow win. Stella likes Tennessee here; she doesn’t think that Ryan Tannehill is actually as good as he’s been in the last month, but she thinks he’ll keep it going long enough to beat the Colts. She also expects Derrick Henry to continue his excellent stretch running the ball. Those elements combined mean that the Titans should win fairly easily.

We’re at odds on the rematch between the Browns and the Steelers. I’m going with the Steelers to win at home. Yes, the quarterback situation is still a mess and they’re on their third-string running back, but the Pittsburgh D is solid and Cleveland isn’t ready to bounce back from the controversy. Stella thinks that the absence of Myles Garrett will be a nonissue. She’s expecting good things from Baker Mayfield and Odell Beckham and the double-decker backfield threat of Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt. Either way, expect fireworks – and not the great kind.

There’s always at least one inconsequential game on these lists – this time, we’re looking at Tampa Bay/Jacksonville. I’m going with the Jaguars at home, Stella’s going with the Buccaneers on the road. Mine’s the safe pick, hers is the exciting one. Neither of us really care all that much.

I’ve got the Rams winning in Arizona against the Cardinals. Obviously, the Rams haven’t looked great over the past month or so. Jared Goff has struggled under center, as has the rest of the offense. The defense has had its glitches as well. That being said, I have to think that they’ll turn it around – and Arizona is a great place to do that. Stella disagrees; she’s counting on a big game out of QB Kyler Murray. She doesn’t think that L.A. can stop him. She’s warier of the Arizona running game, but she still likes their chances.

Finally, in the Monday night game, I’m going with the Vikings to win on the road against Seattle. It’ll be interesting to see how Kirk Cousins leads the Minnesota offense against the Seahawks. They’ve got some strong weapons, led by running back Dalvin Cook, and a surprisingly solid defense to boot. It won’t be easy, but it should be enough. Stella likes Seattle to take the win at home; she loves Russell Wilson against this Vikings team. Her main concern regarding the Seahawks offense involves Chris Carson holding onto the ball. As long as they avoid turnovers, they’ll be fine – and she thinks they’ll avoid them just fine.

And there we have it. Eight games. We’ll have to wait and see if my newly-achieved one-game lead will hold up or if Stella will retake command. If she wants to make a move, she needs to do it soon. As you might imagine, she remains unconcerned.

Adult Toys Does anyone store their silicone toys in plastic bags (like a Ziplock freezer bag or something like that)? Are there any potential concerns in doing this? I generally store everything in cloth bags or original packaging, but I run out of space (again) by keeping things in original packaging plus I have a hard time finding cloth drawstring pouches. Not to mention I have to open all my pouches when I forget which black bag the toy I want is in. I always avoided plastic bags because I felt like somehow it would mess up the material, but then I thought that the original packaging is plastic so I guess it would be okay. Adult Toys

Grand Teton Music Festival Musicians Petition to Reinstate 3 Orchestra Members

 Cache   
By Laurie Niles: A labor fight has embroiled another orchestra - this time in the Rocky Mountains.

Grand Teton Orchestra
Grand Teton Music Festival Orchestra.

Musicians of the Grand Teton Music Festival are circulating petition to reinstate three members of the orchestra who they say were "terminated without cause." So far the petition to reinstate has more than 1,500 signatures. All three musicians were long-time members of the festival orchestra who were deeply active in orchestra politics; two were members of the Player's Committee and one was a musician representative to the board.

In a press release issued last week, the musicians said that the three musicians -- bassoonist Juan de Gomar, violinist Jennifer Ross, and violist Kristen Linfante -- were issued termination letters by Grand Teton Music Festival management "on the grounds of 'comportment” and 'disruptive behavior."

Nearly 100 of the musicians have written letters stating that they will not return to the festival this summer unless the the musicians are reinstated, according to a statement from the GTMF Players' Committee. Those musicians have written letters to Grand Teton Music Festival President and CEO Andrew Palmer Todd and General Manager Jeff Counts.

Representatives for the Grand Teton Music Festival said that because the orchestra is an invitation-only ensemble, it is inaccurate to categorize the non-invitations as terminations.

"The selection of this orchestra has been invitation only for its entire existence," CEO Todd told the Jackson Hole Daily. "Each year there’s occasionally people that are not invited."

Linfante, who is Principal Violist of Apollo’s Fire Baroque Orchestra and has been a member of the Grand Teton festival orchestra for 23 seasons, also was Chairwoman of the festival orchestra’s Players’ Committee. Gomar, who is a bassoonist and contrabassoonist in the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and has been a member of the festival for 19 seasons, also was on the Players’ Committee. Ross, who is former Principal Second Violinist of the Pittsburgh Symphony and has been a member of the festival for the past 38 seasons, is a recent musician representative to the Board of Directors at the Grand Teton Music Festival.

"The commonality among these three musicians is that each openly expressed grave concerns of the musicians at weekly scheduled 'town hall' meetings organized by the festival’s management this past summer," said the musicians' press release. "While town hall meetings typically provide a safe and open forum for discussion, these meetings appear to have done the opposite. The terminated musicians expressed collective concerns surrounding new directions that the festival appears to be going in at the direction of President and CEO Andrew Palmer Todd – a shift that places more focus on the festival as a presenting organization of outside, one-off performers, and less focus on the foundation upon which the festival was built nearly 60 years ago, its internationally recognized orchestra, made up of musicians from the nation’s top orchestras and learning institutions that come together each summer for the seven-week festival."

Representatives for the Grand Teton Music Festival said that "we cannot comment on the specifics of any personnel issues" and that "the festival’s orchestral concerts remain the heart of the festival."

Berlín estrenará aeropuerto en octubre de 2020, con 9 años de retraso

 Cache   

La apertura tantas veces postergada del nuevo Aeropuerto de Berlín Brandenburg (BER) Willy Brandt tiene una nueva fecha, después de nueve años durante los cuales se sucedieron una serie escándalos relacionados con la corrupción y el diseño de mala calidad. Según han anunciado este viernes sus operadores, está previsto que la que será la principal infraestructura de la capital alemana finalmente esté operativa el 31 de octubre de 2020.


El aeropuerto reemplazará a los dos viejos aeropuertos capitalinos de Tegel y Schönefeld que alguna vez fueron los principales aeropuertos de las . de los antiguos Berlín Occidental y Berlín Oriental, respectivamente. Su construcción fue iniciada a mediados de 2006 y su inauguración estaba inicialmente prevista para noviembre de 2011.

Ahora ya, el proyecto plagado de problemas y su demorado estreno, se han convertido en una especie de material cómico para todo tipo de chiste y objeto de risa en Alemania, particularmente, teniendo en cuenta la reputación de eficiencia y rigurosa puntualidad del país que BER ha dejado por los suelos.

Desde entonces, se han fijado 10 fechas de puesta en marcha. Su presupuesto inicial fue de 2.830 millones de euros, una cifra que se ha disparado a más de 7.000 millones de euros después de casi 15 años de planificación y construcción.

Lufthansa, que se convertirá en la aerolínea de referencia -inicialmente era la desaparecida airberlin- aseguró que, en esta oportunidad, los operadores del aeropuerto habían hecho una promesa firme.

El director general del aeropuerto, Engelbert Lütke Daldrup, dijo que está seguro de que los primeros aviones aterrizarán allí el 31 de octubre de 2020, y que las primeras salidas se realizarán al día siguiente. Sin embargo, el presidente del Consejo de Supervisión, Rainer Bretschneider, comentó que todavía había "deficiencias" que debían abordarse rápidamente para alcanzar este objetivo.

El nuevo aeropuerto

El aeropuerto tiene fijado el objetivo de gestionar un tráfico de 27 millones de pasajeros al año inicialmente, una cifra que supone la mitad del tamaño del principal aeropuerto de Alemania, el de Frankfurt, y menos de un tercio del tamaño del aeropuerto más transitado del mundo, el de Atlanta. Será el tercero más grande de Alemania.

Sectores del país reclaman que, casi tres décadas después de la caída del Muro de Berlín y de que el gobierno se trasladara a Berlín, la capital de Alemania sigue a la espera de su nuevo aeropuerto internacional.

"El aeropuerto estaba destinado inicialmente a ser un escaparate de la capital alemana, en consonancia con el creciente estatus de la ciudad como un gran destino turístico y un centro de poder político", han apuntado.

Do you really think the current crop is smarter than JFK or FDR?

 Cache   
It was good enough for FDR.  It was good enough for JFK.


  1. Seeing this shook me. I was 5 yrs old when JFK gave this speech. 57 years later, we're still fighting for . Dem establishment is telling us we're "too far left" & warning us about purity tests for our candidates. is the only candidate willing to fight for it.



But Joe Biden, Tiny Pete and so many others just know better, right?

Does anyone really think Joe and Tiny Pete are smarter than FDR?  Or JFK?

They're not.  They're just money grubbers who will deny We The People what we need so that corporations will toss more money at them.

Be for Bernie.  Be for Elizabeth.  Or Dario Hunter or Howie Hawkins.  But don't support any piece of trash who tells you we can't have Medicare For All.

"Iraq snapshot" (THE COMMON ILLS):
Monday, November 25, 2019.  Protests continue in Iraq amid rumors of a coup while, in the US, Joe Biden's campaign continues to struggle.


Starting in the United States where the race for the Democratic Party's presidential nomination continues.  Nate Poole (MAINE CAMPUS) observes:

The fifth installment of the Democratic debate series took place on Wednesday, Nov. 2, in Atlanta, and Joe Biden was recorded on stage with his foot more firmly secured in his mouth than Americans have yet seen this election cycle. As disheartening as it is to admit it, image is vital in politics, and Biden appears to be hell-bent on constructing himself as befuddled and out of touch with his own party. The most recent debate seemed to make one thing very clear; Biden is not sharp enough to compete on the debate stage. The fact of the matter is that the former vice president may simply be too old to keep up. 
Throughout the majority of the previous debates, Biden has been the preferred target of nearly all the other candidates as he has been leading in many polls since launching his campaign. One might think that two previous runs at the presidency in 1988 and 2008, along with decades of experience in politics, might have prepared Biden for these attacks, but unfortunately, his greatest challenge on the debate stage is himself. Biden’s first major stumble occurred when he was discussing how to prevent sexual assault and violence against women from happening on college campuses by repeating “we’re gonna keep punching at it,” resulting in audible scoffs from the audience. 


Joe was the press favorite.  They excused him, they ignored and minimized his mistakes.  They thought they could carry him over the finish line.  That was then.  Carl Golden (THE TRIBUNE DEMOCRAT) notes how Joe's abilities are being questioned:

The establishment nervousness is two-fold:
• Despite his lead, Biden is in danger of losing the nomination to either Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts or Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, both of whom share far left fringe positions which will doom their chances of defeating President Donald Trump.
• Even if Biden secures the nomination, his campaign has been marked by gaffes and stumbles, raising serious doubts about his ability to compete with Trump. Lurking in the background is the alleged conflict of interest posed by his son’s accepting a $50,000 per month position on the board of directors of Burisma, a Ukraine energy company, while his father served in the White House.


Life's a lot harder for Joe these days.  Steve Ahlquist (UPRISE RI) reports:

As former Vice President and current Presidential candidate Joe Biden left his car in the pouring rain to enter the East Side Providence home of Sally Lapides and Arthur Solomon for an exclusive fundraiser, he was approached by climate activist Michael Kearney. At first Biden seemed to welcome Kearney, but when Kearney, a 22 year old Providence resident, brought up the subject of climate change, Biden brushed him off.
“Why are you putting the fossil fuel industry over us?” yelled Kearney, as Biden left reporters and protesters alike outside in the rain. “You said you wouldn’t take Super PAC money and now you take Super PAC money!”
“I’m really scared for my family who’re in California and suffering the worst effects of wild fires,” said Kearney to reporters. “Every day I am afraid for their lives and their homes. I’m scared for those of us in Rhode Island, because we’re facing the worsening effects of more severe weather events.


Last week, Joe Biden told an immigration activist Carlos Rojas to vote for Donald Trump.  Eric Blanc interviews Carlos for JACOBIN:


People across the country have been sharing the video of your action last night. Can you explain why you decided to challenge Joe Biden?
CR
There’s a presidential election unfolding right now where immigration has received a lot of attention.
And the immigration crisis is felt deeply by many people, not only immigrants. We’ve seen record numbers of allies mobilize to express their outrage about children in cages, family separation, and deaths at the border. Hundreds of thousands took to the streets when Trump declared his “zero tolerance” policy.
But sometimes it feels like the American public thinks Trump started this crisis. So we wanted to take this opportunity to remind voters that even under the Obama administration — with Biden as VP — we had a daily immigration crisis, with an average of over a thousand deportations every single day, 3 million in total.
And yesterday was not first time Biden has been asked about this. It’s really concerning to me that Biden continues to embrace Obama as someone who was supposedly a friend of immigrants. I’m terrified when I hear presidential candidates talk only about rolling back Trump’s policies. Just going back to the Obama status quo is completely unacceptable; it would be a betrayal of the immigrant community.

EB
One of the things Silvia Morreno told Biden was that, given Obama’s broken promises, “it is hard for me to trust you.” Can you speak more about this distrust?


CR
Yes, as I mentioned last night, I had been a volunteer for Obama in 2008. I remember hearing Obama sit down with Jorge Ramos from Univision and promise to legalize the undocumented. And I bought into that — it gave me hope. I believed. A lot of people did.
You know, Obama in 2008, and 2012, depended on immigrant voters — Latino, Asian, African — to win. We carried him to victory in states like Florida, Wisconsin, and Michigan. And one of the reasons we did that is because he promised to pass immigration reform.
But the rest is history; Obama didn’t meet his promises. Not only did he never prioritize immigration, he ended up deporting 3 million of the same people he had promised to help.
We’ve been down this road before. We’re used to presidential candidates adopting positive rhetoric on immigration only when it’s convenient for them. We’ve experienced broken promises leading to family separations. That’s why we’re really focused on this demand that all presidential candidates pledge on day one of taking office to pass a moratorium on deportations through executive order.
Given the magnitude of the crisis, this is the minimum. The mistrust is deep; many immigrants right now are skeptical that either party could be a vehicle for change. Clearly Trump is terrible and he has scapegoated us, but the Obama legacy is still strong. It was not long ago; immigrants remember what happened. So supporting an immediate moratorium on deportations is a critical litmus test — it will take that level of commitment to even begin to restore trust.
We know that Congress is the only body that can pass full legalization, but it would leave candidates off the hook if we only called for a pathway to citizenship. We can’t rely only on Congress. Presidents have executive power to protect immigrants — and they need to use it.



Joe Biden is a nightmare who voted for the Iraq War.  The destruction in Iraq continues.  Brian Bienkowski (ENVIRONMENTAL HEALTH NEWS) reports:

Iraqi children living near a U.S. army base have elevated levels of dangerous metals in their bodies and are more likely to suffer from birth defects, according to a new study.
These disorders at birth can be severe and debilitating — including deformed limbs, congenital heart defects, and brain defects such as spina bifida.
The study, though small, adds to growing evidence that toxics from war — dispensed bombs, bullets, detonation of chemical and conventional weapons, and burn-pit emissions—pollute the environment and local people long after the battles are over, leaving a toxic legacy from U.S. occupation.
"The past decade of war in the Middle East evinces that overwhelming amounts of toxic metals have been injected into the Iraqi environment through thousands of bombings and millions of expended bullets," the authors wrote in the study published today in Environmental Pollution.
The researchers went to Bint Al-Huda Maternal and Child Teaching Hospital in the Nasiriyah region of Iraq and examined 19 children lived near a U.S. Army Base— Tallil Air Base—and 10 children who lived away from the base, comparing the kids' contaminant levels and health problems. The U.S. targeted Nasiriyah both in the early 1990s and 2003, and, according to the Department of Defense, open air burn pits have been used at Tallil Air Base starting in 2003.
"The U.S. maintains stockpiles of radioactive material at bases, and also stockpiles ammunition that has these things in it," lead author, Mozhgan Savabieasfahani, an independent environmental toxicologist based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, told EHN.
They found that the most severe birth defects and the highest levels of thorium—a radioactive byproduct of depleted uranium—were found in children living closest to the United States' Tallil Air Base.


Meanwhile, the protests continue.

A total of 11 protesters have been killed and 289 others injured from Nov. 21 to 24 in the protests in Iraq
 
 
 

Talia Kaplan (FOX NEWS) reports:

At least 13 anti-government protesters were killed Sunday by Iraqi security forces in one of the “worst” days of violence in the country's south amid widespread ongoing demonstrations against corruption, officials said.
Since the anti-government protests broke out in early October, at least 342 people have been killed and thousands more wounded in Baghdad and various southern provinces.
Demonstrators have taken to the streets by the tens of thousands over what they’ve called widespread corruption, a lack of job opportunities and poor basic services, despite the country’s oil wealth.

Leading Up to Sunday’s Game, Fans Can Play NBC Sports’ New ”Sunday Night 7” Free-to-Play Game Featuring $2 Million in Guaranteed Cash Prizes

STAMFORD, Conn.Nov. 26, 2019 – NBC Sports’ Thanksgiving week NFL coverage begins this Thursday with a special primetime matchup in Atlanta, as Matt Ryan and the Falcons host Drew Brees and the NFC South-leading Saints at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, with coverage beginning at 8 p.m. ET on NBC. Coverage continues with Sunday Night Football on Dec. 1, as Tom Brady and the New England Patriots visit Deshaun Watson and the Texans at Houston’s NRG Stadium in a battle between two AFC division leaders. Coverage begins at 7 p.m. ET with Football Night in America, followed by SNF at 8:20 p.m. ET.

This week’s action, which features three first-place teams (Houston, New England, and New Orleans), ties the mark for the most combined wins (29) by the four teams competing on NBC in primetime during Thanksgiving week (NBC began airing the Thanksgiving night game in 2012).

The Saints (9-2) enter Week 13 in first place in the NFC South following a 34-31 win over Carolina. Brees passed for 311 yards and three touchdowns, while kicker Wil Lutz converted the game-winning, 33-yard field goal as time expired. Saints WR Michael Thomas, who had 10 receptions for 101 yards and a touchdown last week, leads the league in receptions (104) and receiving yards (1,242) this season, and is on pace to surpass Hall of Famer Marvin Harrison (143 in 2002) for the most catches in a single season in NFL history.

Atlanta (3-8) has won two of its past three games, including a 26-9 victory over the Saints in New Orleans on Nov. 10, highlighted by two Matt Ryan touchdown passes and 2.5 sacks from DT Grady Jarrett. Ryan has 49,654 career passing yards and earlier this season, surpassed Hall of Famer Warren Moon (49,325) for the 10th-most passing yards in NFL history.

On Thanksgiving night, Mike Tirico (play-by-play), Tony Dungy (analyst) and Rodney Harrison (analyst) will shift from the Football Night in America studio into the broadcast booth to call Falcons-Saints. Three-time Emmy Award-winning reporter Michele Tafoya will report from the sidelines in Atlanta, and will award the traditional postgame turkey legs and game balls. Three-time Super Bowl referee and SNF rules analyst Terry McAulay joins Tirico, Dungy and Harrison in the booth.

Atlanta-based multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning Zac Brown Band will headline NBC Sports’ show open for the Sunday Night Football “Thanksgiving Special.” Gathered in Atlanta around a Thanksgiving table with all the trimmings, the special show open begins with Zac Brown receiving a text from Carrie Underwood, the star of NBC’s Sunday Night Football show open, who has the holiday off.

Brady and the Patriots moved to 10-1 with last week’s 13-9 victory over Dallas and are tied with the San Francisco 49ers for the best record in the NFL. Brady has 60 career wins in the month of December, the most in NFL history. New England’s defense is off to a historic start through 11 games, leading the league in points allowed per game (10.6) and turnover differential (+19), while ranking second in total yards allowed per game (248.0). The Patriots, who have allowed nine touchdowns this season, could approach the record for fewest defensive touchdowns allowed in a 16-game season. The mark is held by the 1985 Chicago Bears and 2000 Baltimore Ravens, who allowed 16 touchdowns each, and both went on to win the Super Bowl.

The Texans (7-4) defeated division-rival Indianapolis, 20-17, last week to take a one-game lead in the AFC South. Watson is one of three quarterbacks in the NFL this season with 2,850+ passing yards (2,899) and a 100+ passer rating (103.4), while WR DeAndre Hopkins ranks second in the league with 81 receptions.

Calling Packers-49ers is Al Michaels (play-by-play), in his record 34th season as the voice of the NFL’s premier primetime package; 16-time Emmy Award-winner Cris Collinsworth; and Tafoya. SNF rules analyst McAulay joins Michaels and Collinsworth in the booth.

Tirico will host Football Night in America alongside Dungy, Harrison, NFL Insider Mike Florio and former NFL quarterback Chris Simms. Liam McHugh will co-host Football Night in America on-site from NRG Stadium.

NBC’s coverage of Sunday Night Football is led by executive producer Fred Gaudelli and director Drew Esocoff. FNIA begins every Sunday at 7 p.m. ET, and is produced by Rob Hyland and directed by Mike Sheehan.

SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL AVERAGING A TOTAL AUDIENCE DELIVERY OF 20.6 MILLION VIEWERS – THE HIGHEST 12-WEEK AVERAGE FOR THE SERIES SINCE 2015

San Francisco’s 37-8 victory over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night – despite the biggest Week 12 NBC Sunday Night blowout ever and largest SNF halftime differential (23 points) in over three years – averaged a Total Audience Delivery (TAD) of 21.3 million viewers, ranking as the best SNF Week 12 viewership since 2015 (Denver-New England).

Through 12 weeks (13 games), NBC’s SNF is averaging a Total Audience Delivery of 20.6 million viewers – the highest 12-week average for the series since 2015, and up 4% from the same point last season.

Bye-bye Spanish Moss and dear Friends...

 Cache   
On December 6 of 1990, it was our final day at home in Dublin and for Dad it was bye-bye Spanish Moss and dear Friends where he'd stayed with us the first days before we moved into our new home.
Dad loved this section of Akerman St. in Dublin, GA where the Spanish Moss hung so lavishly.
Can you imagine this was on December 6?!
Blue sky and Dad walks in his shirt...
Uncle Bo Whaley stopped by to say his goodbye...
Dear friend Somai stopped by to drop off a gift for Mom, for Dad to take home next day...
We all 3 did stay with her and husband Bob for five nights till we could make our own beds here in the new home, after finding everything inside those 110 boxes...
Always tough to leave friends, home and everything behind when flying across the Oceans, back to work in Indonesia...
Bye-Bye Dublin, Georgia...
Next day we flew with Dad on KLM Royal Airlines to Amsterdam, The Netherlands where all of us would gather at the Meeting Point.
Mom with my brother Piet and Rianne and sister Gerd were there!
Dad treated us all on a coffee and they drove home, back to the South in Limburg.
This time they managed to get into the car with 5 adults, contrary to November 11, when brother Harry had his little 3-year old son Johnny with him and thus no space for Mom in his Citroen BX...???

Dad had a nice America adventure and we had great help from him by moving into our new home.

Now it's back to work, next flight to Delhi and then Singapore and finally arriving in Jakarta, Indonesia... Next day flying to final destination, driving up into the mountains where we lived and worked.

Thanks for your visit and comment!

Liberty Tire Recycling to Match First $5,000 Donated to The Ray on Georgia Gives Day

 Cache   

 Liberty Tire Recycling announced today that they will be matching the first $5,000 donated to The Ray on Georgia Gives Day, December 3, 2019.

Georgia Gives Day falls each year on Giving Tuesday, a national day of giving following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and is an opportunity for Georgians to take one day out of the shopping season to prioritize philanthropy and support nonprofits’ missions and year-round work.

Liberty Tire Recycling and The Ray are natural partners and have worked together on a signature project of The Ray - a two-mile rubberized asphalt paving project adjacent to The Ray’s 18 miles of I-85 in west Georgia. In 2017, the two partnered with Troup County to pave the new Tom Hall Parkway with 6,560,000 pounds of rubberized asphalt paving mix using rubber from scrap tires. This year, the Georgia Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration funded a one mile test section of rubberized asphalt on all four interstate lanes of The Ray, from the Georgia-Alabama state line to mile marker one, as well as the entire parking lot of the Georgia Visitor Information Center in West Point. Approximately 42,240 pounds of processed rubber were upcycled into the asphalt project, accounting for 3,520 scrap tires.

Rubberized asphalt roads are a boon to the surrounding community. First, they remove scrap tires out of landfills or illegal dumps where they are breeding grounds for disease-carrying mosquitos and fire hazards. Those tires are then upcycled into a premium road that lasts 50 - 100 percent longer, are quieter, adept at managing stormwater, and is resistant to cracking even in extreme temperatures.

"Quiet, resilient and safe roads are core to our vision for the highway of the future,” said Harriet Anderson Langford, founder and president of The Ray. “We are so grateful for this support on Georgia Gives Day from our partners at Liberty Tire Recycling.”

“Liberty Tire Recycling and The Ray believe that innovation can make roads safer,” said Dewey Grantham, regional Vice President of Liberty Tire Recycling. “Innovation in transportation can be complication - but it can also be simple. Using scrap tire rubber in the road asphalt is one of those simple innovations that benefit everyone. Roads are safer and quieter to drive on, they have a longer life, and they are crack resistant. The rubber road on The Ray’s interstate is what Ray Anderson would call ‘so right and so smart.’ This is why Liberty and The Ray are perfect partners for road safety, sustainability, and innovative pavement.”

“Liberty Tire Recycling was one of the very first partners of The Ray. From day one they have shared research and data that has informed our work with Georgia DOT. In this season of giving we are grateful for their continued support and generosity,” said Allie Kelly, executive director of The Ray.

For more information about The Ray’s Georgia Gives Day Campaign please visit their campaign webpage. Donations are being accepted now.

About The Ray

The Ray is a proving ground for the evolving ideas and technologies that will transform the transportation infrastructure of the future, beginning with the corridor of road that is named in memory of Ray C. Anderson (1934-2011), a Georgia native who became a captain of industry and was recognized as a leader in green business when he challenged his company, Atlanta-based Interface, Inc., to reimagine the enterprise as a sustainable company—one that would pursue zero environmental footprint. Chaired by Ray’s daughter Harriet Langford, The Ray is an epiphany of the Ray C. Anderson Foundation. Learn more.

About Liberty Tire Recycling

Liberty Tire Recycling is the premier provider of tire recycling services in North America. By recycling more than 150 million tires annually, Liberty reclaims about 2.2 billion pounds of rubber for innovative, useful products. The recycled rubber produced by Liberty is used as crumb rubber and industrial feedstock for molded products; as tire-derived fuel for industrial kilns, mills and power plants; and as rubber mulch for landscaping and playgrounds. The company maintains a network of processing plants and comprehensive door-to-door collection services. Learn more.


          

A Decade of Care: Hanes Launches 10th National Sock Drive to Help the Homeless; Tops 3 Million Donated Pairs

 Cache   

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., November 22, 2019 /3BL Media/ – Small gifts often have the most meaning.

For the millions of people living homeless, a clean pair of socks is often described as “the gift of humanity.” Hanes, America’s No. 1 basic apparel, underwear and sock brand, is partnering with organizations fighting homelessness nationwide to deliver comfort to those who need it most through the Hanes National Sock Drive. The brand is marking 10 years of helping provide care and compassion during this year’s drive by:

  • Donating more than 250,000 pairs of socks directly to organizations fighting homelessness in all 50 states, along with Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. Since the program’s inception in 2009, Hanes has provided more than 3 million pairs of socks – one of the most requested items by relief agencies – to help the homeless.

  • Giving an additional pair of socks for every order of any apparel placed in December on Hanes.com. Socks will be provided to local homeless shelters.

  • Partnering with Rainier Fruit Company for its second “Pears for Pairs” campaign, which is currently running in United Supermarkets, Harris Teeter, Wegmans, and Lunds & Byerlys stores. From late September through January, Rainier is donating a portion of the proceeds from bulk and bagged pear sales to the Hanes National Sock Drive. In 2018, the Pears for Pairs campaign resulted in 20,000 pairs of socks being donated to five nonprofits.

  • Offering consumers the opportunity to participate directly in the program by visiting www.hanes.com/donate to gift socks ($1), women’s underwear ($1), men’s underwear ($1.50) and bras ($6) that will be distributed in needed styles and sizes.

  • Continuing its 10-year collaboration with Invisible People and its founder, Mark Horvath, to help raise awareness about homelessness. Invisible People uses innovative storytelling, educational resources and advocacy to help change how the public views homelessness and those living homeless in the United States and abroad.

“Most of us take basic apparel for granted, but we know a new, clean pair of socks can mean a lot to those experiencing homelessness,” said Sidney Falken, chief branding officer, HanesBrands. “We are committed to bringing a little comfort to those who need it most – and it is incredibly gratifying to have others, including many individuals across the country, join us in this effort.”

More than 100 agencies, including The Salvation Army Bell Shelter (Bell, California), Homeward Bound (Asheville, North Carolina) and Compassion Outreach Ministries (Columbus, Ohio), have received sock donations from Hanes.

“Small things really do make a big difference to our clients,” said Steve Lytle, director of The Salvation Army Bell Shelter. “The smile on a client’s face when she received a clean pair of socks for the first time in months was priceless. There was joy in her eyes and it was clear that the socks were the most precious gift she could have received in that moment. Another client said his gift of clean socks was a sign that there are people who care and that his life did matter.”

Homeward Bound distributes more than 2,000 pairs of socks a month to those living homeless.

“Homelessness is a community problem and it will take everyone’s support to help end the epidemic,” said Ashley Campbell, the agency’s outreach specialist. “Right now, some of your neighbors are living outside, in tents and under bridges, vulnerable to inclement weather and violence, stripped of dignity and our collective respect.

“There are so many ways to help,” Campbell continued. “Educate yourself about homelessness in your community, volunteer at your local agency fighting this issue or simply make a donation that would help a nonprofit save its limited resources.”

Jeffrey Tabor, director of TWO Men’s Ministry House for Compassion Outreach Ministries of Ohio, added that there is no donation too small to be used for good to fulfill a basic human need.

“Imagine the importance of just one pair of socks when you are focused on keeping your feet dry and warm during the cold winter months,” Tabor said. “That’s why we are so thankful for our partnership with Hanes, which has fulfilled an immediate, basic human need for so many people.”

Lytle underscores, however, that sometimes it all boils down to human contact. “Acknowledge people who are experiencing homelessness with a smile or hello,” he said. “By engaging with a person who is experiencing homelessness we are saying ‘I see you and you matter.’”

The Hanes National Sock Drive is part of Hanes for Good, the corporate responsibility program of Hanes’ parent company, HanesBrands (NYSE:HBI).

Mueller, Barr, Giuliani, Comey and Kallstrom Once Fought Terror Together—Now Trump Has Them Fight Each Other

 Cache   

Mueller, Barr, Giuliani, Comey and Kallstrom Once Fought Terror Together—Now Trump Has Them Fight Each OtherPhoto Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast/GettyThe constellation of federal investigators, attorneys, prosecutors and judges orbiting Donald Trump in the last three years have a unique, shared history.Relatively unknown to the American public is the fact that before many of them became household names, cast as either the heroes or villains of the Trump saga (depending on where you stand on Trump), they were colleagues in the trenches of some of America’s biggest terrorism cases. They crossed paths numerous times in courtrooms and at crime scenes, often united by a single case.  From my perch working for the House Intelligence Committee, at the FBI as a congressional liaison, and then on the 9/11 Joint Inquiry, I observed what in many respects were their finest achievements, how those played out politically, how they fought their turf battles at home and with foreign governments, how they learned to communicate with the American public after each tragedy—and ultimately, fundamentally how they changed America’s approach to national security.  If Trump’s Rage Brings ‘Civil War,’ Where Will the Military Stand?In the 1990s, as hundreds of Americans were being slaughtered in acts of terrorism from Oklahoma City to Kenya to lower Manhattan—and while Donald Trump was hosting teenage beauty pageants—these men helped capture, extradite, prosecute, and put away for life some of the worst mass murderers of American citizens in our nation’s history. But now they have become caricatures and cable news fodder—and their reputations are part of the professional carnage that comes to almost everyone who is part of the Donald Trump story. They are known to the American public primarily for the things they have said, for one reason or the other, about Trump—and even more to the point, for what he has said about them.Rudy Giuliani, James Comey, Robert Mueller, William Barr, James Kallstrom, and Louis Freeh have all taken divergent paths over the past few years. But in the more than two decades that preceded Trump’s descent down the golden escalator on election night 2016, their résumés overlapped as they worked to find the perpetrators and bring them to justice in such cases as Pan Am 103, a 747 blown up over Lockerbie, Scotland; the devastated Federal Building in Oklahoma City; the Khobar Towers full of American personnel, blown up in Saudi Arabia; the Atlanta Olympics bombing; the devastated American embassies in Tanzania and Kenya; the attack on the USS Cole at anchor in Yemen; then, of course 9/11. And it’s a sad fact that the work they did during their impressive law enforcement careers got lost in the noise created by Trump’s presidency.Most interesting of all, however, is the fact that for most of these men, what they thought of Trump in 2016 had a lot to do with their opinion of the occupants of the White House—Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton—during those years their lives had intersected. Those opinions proved to be enduring and consequential. * * *THE DIRECTOR* * *In September 1993, Federal Judge Louis J. Freeh walked out of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York and into FBI Headquarters as its new Director. Both his youth, 43 years of age, and his background as a former FBI agent, made him an inspired choice to lead the Bureau when nominated by the new American President, Bill Clinton. Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast/Cynthia Johnson/The LIFE Images Collection viaGettyFreeh’s predecessor, William Sessions, had not completed his 10-year term as director before a report alleging ethical improprieties was released by President George H. W. Bush’s Attorney General William Barr (yes, the same William Barr who is today Trump’s Attorney General).Sessions refused to exit his position voluntarily, so it was left to Clinton’s new attorney general, Janet Reno, to fire him. Clinton may wish he had held on to Sessions. The new president and the new FBI Director would soon be at loggerheads. Although there was still a sense of excitement in Washington over the generational shift that the 1992 election represented, the fact was the Clinton administration began as an unmitigated disaster. It seemed undisciplined and chaotic to Freeh, and its early days were consumed with FBI investigations into Filegate, Travelgate, Whitewater, Paula Jones and Jennifer Flowers, and even an investigation into China’s attempts to meddle in the 1992 elections. And, most mysteriously, there was the investigation into the shocking suicide of Bill and Hillary’s long-time friend from Arkansas, Deputy White House Counsel Vince Foster. FBI agents walked around the halls dispirited, talking about their affection for George H.W. Bush and their disdain for the dirty campaign they felt the Clintons had waged against him. While Clinton came off cool (playing sax on The Arsenio Hall Show, for example), “The Wimp Factor” tagline stuck to George H.W. Bush—a man who had flown 50 combat missions during World War II, had been one of the Navy’s youngest aviators and was a recipient of the Distinguished Flying Cross.  Freeh, who had been appointed a federal judge by the senior Bush, had a deep affection for him. He accepted the job as FBI Director even though he believed not only that the wrong man had won the presidency, but was firmly convinced that the winner, Clinton, was dirty. In those years, the FBI’s antipathy towards the Clintons flowed from the top down—and would become ingrained in its organizational culture. For his part, had Clinton wanted an FBI Director who would do his bidding and sweep his scandals under the rug (which the current president seems to believe is part of the job description), he knew damn well it wouldn’t be Freeh. Yet, he courted Freeh. Freeh, considered tough and clean as a hound’s tooth, would give the new Clinton Administration a patina of ethical validity it desperately needed. But Freeh’s FBI was immediately immersed in investigating Clinton’s skeletons. Freeh gave back his White House pass that had allowed him unlimited, unrecorded, access to the White House believing it would pose a conflict of interest while the Clintons were under investigation. Clinton, now realizing Freeh would be breathing down his neck, was not happy with this slap in the face. But during his entire administration, and with the endless ethical clouds that hung over him, Clinton did not dare fire Freeh.Freeh and Clinton would not speak for four years, until the bombing of the USS Cole.* * *THE HILL* * *Freeh was an instant darling with Members of Congress, and was accorded great deference and latitude. He would need it. The FBI Freeh walked into had a plethora of problems and investigations of its own to contend with. His earnest demeanor served him well—and he was complemented by his equally earnest Congressional liaison chief, John Collingwood, who was spectacularly effective at putting out the FBI’s fires. Without a drop of arrogance and possessing a deep belief in the mission of the Bureau, Collingwood was also a master at turning every FBI screw-up into an opportunity—for more resources or more law enforcement authorities. He was perhaps the greatest asset the Bureau had when facing its many challenges with Congress. When I worked in his office, I learned from Collingwood a simple formula for dealing with the Hill that most federal agencies refused to learn: Congress can be your best friend if you don’t treat its members and staff like the enemy. Give them (most of) what they ask for, be personable and on a first-name basis with staffers, and give them a heads-up to important stories before they hit the media—even if its means calling them at home at 2 a.m. (which we often did). If trust is built, Congressional staffers will, in turn, give you a heads up to potential problematic or embarrassing issues that could otherwise blindside the Director at an oversight hearing. (The first rule of any good staff work, anywhere: never, ever allow your boss to be surprised by bad news.)Collingwood could wrap his arm around the shoulder of Senator Robert Byrd (the most powerful man in Congress at the time), and Byrd would feel the entire goodwill of the FBI in that gesture—especially after Byrd made it possible for the FBI to move its badly outdated Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) to Clarksburg, West Virginia, Byrd’s home state. The CJIS is the largest division of the FBI responsible for, among other things, its automated fingerprint identification lab and national instant criminal background check system. Byrd was known as “the king of pork” for his ability to shovel millions of dollars to West Virginia. The FBI was smart enough to seize on the opportunity Byrd was offering, thus giving him a stake in the sustainability of the FBI, as well as much needed jobs for West Virginians.And the FBI’s sustainability was not a given. Freeh took charge of an FBI still reeling from its role in the carnage that occurred at Ruby Ridge, Idaho, and Waco, Texas. Both locations had been the site of standoffs between citizens and federal agents, and Waco and Ruby Ridge had become rallying cries for anti-government militias. The overly aggressive actions of federal agents had left 83 Americans dead. The country’s faith in federal law enforcement was at an all-time low. Armed, anti-government militia groups were sprouting up across the nation. At the same time, far removed from Ruby Ridge and Waco, in lower Manhattan an even more insidious threat was about to make itself known. On Feb. 26, 1993, a rental truck carrying 1,400 pounds of ammonium nitrate exploded under the North Tower of the World Trade Center. Six people were killed in an attack right in the heart of America’s financial center.The Soviet invasion of Afghanistan had energized the jihadist movement around the world. After the Soviets pulled out of Afghanistan, mujahideen veterans and fellow-travelers seemed to replace their anti-Soviet fervor with an extreme anti-American ideology. Many began congregating in Islamic centers and mosques across the U.S., including New York and New Jersey. Although American military assistance had helped turn the tide for the mujahideen in their war against the Soviets, they now turned their sights toward the U.S. This was known as “blowback.” But blowback would not be coming just from Afghanistan’s jihadists. It was also developing in America’s heartland.* * *OKLAHOMA CITY* * *The security guard sitting outside the offices of the House Intelligence Committee stopped me and pointed to the television on his desk. On the screen was a horrific scene coming out of Oklahoma City. A building was sheared in half. Under tons of rubble lay an unknown number of bodies. A moon-like crater was obvious in the street where a Ryder rental truck had detonated 4,000 pounds of ammonium nitrate—a much bigger and more powerful bomb than the one used in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.  Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast/Ralf-Finn Hestoft/CORBIS viaGettyWhen Timothy McVeigh was apprehended, the motive for the carnage became clear. The date of the slaughter was April 19, 1995, exactly two years after the federal standoff at David Koresh’s compound in Waco, Texas. This was McVeigh’s revenge—blowing up the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, killing 168 people, including 19 children.The scale of the Oklahoma City attack, the very audacity of it, the very cruelty of it, committed by an American against other Americans, seemed like evil incarnate. Here was an “all-American white boy,” as people said, brutally killing fellow innocent Americans and children right in America’s heartland because of his hatred for federal agencies. If this level of anger existed out there in the country, how and where else might it express itself? Federal law enforcement and the media became obsessed and slightly hysterical over the idea of anti-government militias, even though McVeigh had no formal ties to any of them. Ultimately, however, McVeigh’s actions had an effect opposite to the one he intended. Instead of adding fuel to the anti-government movement, militia members resented the fact that the Feds would now be breathing down their necks. And they certainly were disgusted by the killing of so many innocent children. Some militia members began cooperating with the Feds, alerting them to possible violent extremists in their midsts. The FBI created a Domestic Terrorism Planning Section which found itself handling mostly threats against abortion clinics and crimes committed by radical animal rights groups, like the Animal Liberation Front (ALF). Without reasonable cause, there was little the FBI could do to surveil American citizens traipsing through the woods with legally owned firearms playing weekend warrior. They couldn’t be arrested simply for their views. But after Oklahoma City, the FBI drafted a wish list of expanded authorities to monitor potential terrorists domestically. A coalition of left and right civil libertarians on the Hill thwarted attempts to pass these measures. (Some of the expanded authorities gained new life after 9/11 when they became part of The Patriot Act.)Trump Is First to Use PATRIOT Act to Detain a Man Forever* * *THE SAUDI MIRROR* * *One again the terror spotlight was about to shift. On June 26, 1996, just weeks after the FBI had successfully concluded an 81-day standoff with the anti-government Freeman group in Montana, a truck bomb exploded in a housing complex in Khobar, Saudi Arabia, killing 19 Air Force personnel who were there to enforce the no-fly zone imposed on the regime of Saddam Hussein in Iraq. Hezbollah in the Hijaz (or “Saudi Hezbollah”) took credit for the attack. Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast/GettyThe Saudis knew more than they let on to the FBI about this group, but getting information from the Saudis involved a very delicate diplomatic dance—something FBI agents abhor. The deference paid to the Saudis after Khobar would never be accorded to another country within whose borders American servicemen had been killed. Less than a year before the Khobar bombing, another bomb had exploded in Riyadh, killing five U.S. Defense Department contractors. But before the FBI could interrogate the suspects, the Saudis extracted confessions from them and had them beheaded. Now 19 American airmen had been killed in Saudi Arabia, and the United States was once again saying “pretty please” to Saudi royals to get them to share information. It’s hard to determine whether it was Freeh’s strained relationship with the Clinton administration, or the Clinton administration’s hope for a rapprochement with Iran that led to other roadblocks in the Khobar investigation. Iran was clearly behind Saudi Hezbollah, but it was the Saudis, and the Saudis alone, who held the key to the investigation. With the information they possessed on the attack the year before, Khobar might have been prevented.  To shake information loose from the Saudis, and with less than enthusiastic support from the Clinton Administration, Freeh turned again to his friend, former President George H.W. Bush, who had liberated Kuwait from Saddam’s occupation and guaranteed the security of Saudi Arabia four years earlier. Freeh also weighed in with his own pal, the flamboyant Saudi ambassador to the United States, Prince Bandar bin Sultan.  As Lawrence Wright reported in his Pulitzer Prize-winning book, The Looming Tower, John O’Neill, the chief of the FBI’s Counterterrorism Section, had angered Freeh (who valued his relationship with Bush, Prince Bandar, and his ability to gain access to Saudi Arabia without help from the Clinton White House) by telling him on a flight home from the Kingdom, “Boss, they’re blowing smoke up your ass.” The FBI did finally get access of sorts to the Khobar detainees held by the Saudis—but only by watching behind a two-way mirror as members of the Mabahith, the Saudi secret police, asked the questions. * * *PRECEDENTS* * *To understand how the Bureau developed its response to terrorist attacks you’d have to go back to the 1988 bombing of Pan Am 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, which killed 270 people. Pan Am 103 was the first major terrorist attack against American civilians. A Hezbollah bombing of the US Marine Barracks in Beirut, Lebanon three years earlier had killed 220 Marines and 21 civilians. But Pan Am 103 was a watershed: 190 passengers had been American citizens on their way home for the Christmas holidays; 43 were British, and at least 19 other nationalities were represented among the lost. Among those killed were 35 students from Syracuse University returning to the U.S. after a semester studying in London. The U.N. Commissioner for Namibia, the CEO for Volkswagen America, the CIA’s Beirut Deputy Station Chief and a group of other U.S. Intelligence specialists were on that flight, raising suspicion that it might have been specially targeted. Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast/Bryn Colton/GettyLegislation was passed giving the FBI extraterritorial jurisdiction over investigations wherever Americans were killed, and the Pan Am 103 investigation would be handled by the Justice Department’s Criminal Division—headed by one Robert S. Mueller—a recent Bush 41 appointee. Mueller had been overseeing the prosecution of Manuel Noriega and mob boss John Gotti, but Pan Am 103 had the greatest emotional impact on him. As recently as 2018, Mueller met once again with family members of that ill-fated flight, including the now-adult children of victims, telling them, “There are those who say that time heals all wounds. But you know that not to be true. At its best, time may dull the deepest wounds; it cannot make them disappear.”  Photo Illustration by Elizabeth Brockway/The Daily Beast/Ron Sachs/Consolidated News Pictures/GettyOn Nov. 19, 1991, Acting Attorney General William Barr (yes, the same William Barr who is attorney general today), announced the indictments of two Libyan intelligence operatives for placing the bomb that destroyed Pan Am 103. A trial would not begin until 2000. In 2003, Libya would pay $2.7 billion in compensation to the families of the victims. The man found guilty, Abdelbasit Ali Mohmed al Megrahi, would ultimately die at home in Tripoli in 2017.But in 1988, never having dealt with a terrorist attack on the scale of Pan Am 103, the Bureau received very poor marks for its outreach to the grieving families. So when the Khobar Towers bombings occurred, Freeh would go out of his way to promise justice to the victims’ families—a justice that would, however, have to be finessed to suit Saudi sensibilities.In his 2005 memoir, My FBI, Freeh credits the ultimately successful indictments of the Khobar Tower suspects to his hand-picked choice as prosecutor, James B. Comey. (Yes, that James Comey.) “I will always be grateful for his leadership and pursuit of justice,” Freeh wrote of Comey, who was responsible for a federal grand jury in Alexandria, Virginia returning a 46-count indictment against 14 defendants charged with the bombing of the Khobar Towers.But the Bureau barely had time to catch its breath. Just three weeks after the Khobar Towers attack, the genuine, overwhelming desire by the FBI to convince grieving families they would receive justice would be tested in unimaginable ways. On July 17, 1996, TWA 800 exploded over the Atlantic shortly after taking off from JFK airport, killing 240 people.END OF PART ONETOMORROW: CONSPIRACIES AND DISASTERSRead more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

FINAL DE TEMPORADA - 2/12, segunda-feira, 20h15

Temporada de Casas Inimagináveis termina nesta segunda com duas transformações incríveis

Em Casas Inimagináveis (You Can't Turn That Into a House), série exclusiva do LIFETIME, os irmãos Taimoor e Rehan viajam pelos Estados Unidos reescrevendo as regras do design de residências. Eles transformam estruturas não convencionais, bizarras e perigosas em casas surpreendentes, engenhosas e luxuosas.

Não há trabalho que eles não possam assumir, seja renovando um trailer velho para uma casa móvel para convidados, transformando uma lixeira industrial em um refúgio à beira de um lago, ou juntando dois ônibus escolares para formarem uma estrutura única.

Com a sabedoria em negócios de Taimoor e o talento artístico de Rehan, além da ajuda do amigo e arquiteto Kyle Davis, esse time se une para tornar sonhos realidade, criando as propriedades mais excêntricas e casas inimagináveis.

No primeiro inédito de hoje, Retiro de caça, Taimoor e Rehan querem transformar um celeiro gigante fora de uso em um rústico refúgio para os amantes da caça. Será que eles vão conseguir acertar em cheio com o seu projeto? E, no último episódio, Casa de pedra, os irmãos vão para o Missouri com uma missão: transformar uma residência redonda abandonada em uma ostentosa casa de veraneio de estilo francês. Para conseguir atingir seu objetivo, eles deverão lutar contra uma avalanche de pedidos e uma estrutura inflexível. O projeto dará certo? Classificação indicativa: 10 anos

LIFETIME estreia a série nacional Criativos.BR – Moda e Identidade, sobre moda brasileira

A partir desta segunda, o LIFETIME exibe a série inédita Criativos.BR – Moda e Identidade. A produção faz uma viagem pela moda brasileira, e explora temas como identidades, talentos pouco conhecidos, a matéria-prima usada na produção de vestuários e acessórios, e os desafios criativos ligados a moda. Por meio de uma perspectiva inovadora, busca nas identidades uma ponte de diálogo com a critividade e a arte na moda.

A série é apresentada pela fashion stylist e consultora de moda e imagem Samantha Urban. Em cada episódio, um produtor convidado e o fotógrafo do programa, Lucas Assis, devem realizar um ensaio com produtos de diferentes cidades.

O LIFETIME exibirá episódios inéditos de segunda a sexta, às 23h20.

No episódio de estreia, Despretensiosamente Brasil, Samantha Urban desembarca em João Pessoa, na Paraíba. Ela visita a Estação Cabo Branco, complexo arquitetônico projetado por Oscar Niemeyer, um espaço que respira cultura, arte, ciência e tecnologia e é um dos principais pontos turísticos e cartões postais da cidade, onde será o primeiro ensaio. Samantha também viaja para o interior da Paraíba e conhece as etapas da produção e uso do algodão colorido, no Assentamento Margarida Maria Alves.

3/12 – terça-feira

Em Inventividade, Samantha  desembarca em Olinda, e é nas ruas da cidade que se realizará o ensaio fotográfico com o tema Inventividade. Um município brasileiro do estado de Pernambuco, Olinda está situada na mesorregião Metropolitana do Recife. A matéria-prima utilizada neste ensaio será o algodão colorido trazido da Paraíba, apresentado no episódio anterior, e as modelos serão algumas drag queens da cidade. Samantha passa pelas cidades de Pesqueira e Recife investigando a renda renascença, matéria-prima que levará para o ensaio em Fortaleza no Ceará, em mais uma ponte criativa.

4/12 – quarta-feira

No episódio Retrato de família, o segundo ensaio será em Fortaleza, cidade conhecida pelas belezas de suas praias, pela presença do sol na maior parte do ano, pela culinária, pela irreverência do seu humor, pela alegria do seu forró, dentre outras coisas. O ensaio acontece no Theatro José de Alencar, referência artística, turística e arquitetônica no país, além de ser tombado pelo Instituto do Patrimônio Histórico e Artístico Nacional, e terá o tema Retratos de Família. As modelos são familiares que conseguem traduzir nas fotos o tema do ensaio, utilizando a renda renascença. Enquanto o ensaio é produzido, Samantha irá em uma fábrica de moda íntima investigar a próxima matéria prima da ponte criativa, a lingerie.

5/12 – quinta-feira

Em Entre nós, Samantha vai a Campina Grande, na Paraíba, levando para o ensaio a matéria prima do Ceará, a moda íntima. O ensaio é realizado na Fazenda Casa de Cumpade que traz todo a estética da cultura nordestina, e terá como tema “Entre Nós”, sendo protagonizado por mulheres que venceram o câncer utilizando a moda íntima de Fortaleza. Enquanto isso, Samantha irá investigar em Campina Grande a matéria prima que protagonizará a próxima ponte criativa: os calçados.

6/12 – sexta-feira

O segundo ensaio do episódio Fronteiras será no Palácio do Rio Branco em Salvador, Bahia. Localizado na Praça Thomé de Sousa, ao lado do principal cartão postal de Salvador, o Palácio do Rio Branco é um monumento à História do Brasil. Foi sede política e residência dos primeiros governadores e vice-reis do país por mais de dois séculos na então colônia portuguesa, chegando a abrigar a Família Real portuguesa na sua passagem pelas terras brasileiras. O ensaio será estrelado por imigrantes utilizando a matéria prima da Paraíba, os calçados. A matéria prima que será investigada para o próximo ensaio são os tecidos étnicos. CI: livre

Em episódio inédito de Project Runway, os estilistas terão de criar looks com materiais de segurança

Heidi Klum, Tim Gunn e Nina Garcia estão no LIFETIME, na 16ª temporada de Project Runway. Em cada episódio, a série vencedora do Emmy celebra o melhor do design, do mundo das passarelas e da indústria da moda. Com criatividade e inovação, os estilistas competidores buscam alcançar um nome no competitivo mundo da moda.

A 16ª temporada – a última com a participação de Heidi Klum e Tim Gunn - sai do convencional e se torna mais inclusiva, apresentando modelos de todos os tamanhos na passarela, do 36 ao 52. E os estilistas terão de demonstrar sua habilidade em criar looks incríveis para todo tipo de mulher.

Os novos episódios mantêm o exigente júri do mundo do espetáculo e da moda: a colombiana Nina García, diretora de Moda da revista Elle, e o multipremiado designer Zac Posen. Entre as juradas convidadas desta nova temporada estão Olivia Munn, Demi Lovato, Katie Holmes e Jessica Alba.

Em Looks seguros, o desafio será com materiais não-convencionais e ninguém estará a salvo. Os estilistas deverão utilizar materiais de segurança para criar um visual deslumbrante. A poucos dias do início da Semana de Moda, quem vai se destacar? A atriz Carly Chaikin, de Mr. Robot, é a jurada da vez. CI: 12

A tensão entre as mães pode estragar os planos de Abby para as Nacionais, no inédito de Dance Moms

Dance Moms, sucesso do LIFETIME que conquistou a América Latina e o Brasil, está em sua oitava temporada.

Abby Lee dirige sua escola com mão de ferro, mas sempre arruma tempo para ensinar suas jovens e talentosas alunas, e também para lidar com as exigências das mães das garotas, que fazem de tudo para que as filhas realizem seus sonhos profissionais.

No inédito desta sexta, Renascer das cinzas, a apenas uma semana das Nacionais e da chance de se redimir em Pittsburgh, a pressão aumenta para a equipe.

O melhor amigo de Oscar reaparece na vida de Alejandra para tentar ajudá-la, nos episódios inéditos de O Píer

Exclusiva do LIFETIME, a produção O Píer (El Embarcadero), dos mesmos criadores de A Casa de Papel, conta a história de um triângulo amoroso entre um homem e duas mulheres aparentemente muito diferentes. Depois da morte repentina dele, elas descobrem que compartilharam seu amor sem saber, durante oito anos.

Protagonizado por Álvaro Morte (o Professor, de A Casa de Papel), Irene Arcos (Vis a Vis, Elite) e Verónica Sánchez (Os Serranos), este thriller romântico já tem sua segunda temporada confirmada. Em oito episódios, O Píer rompe os esquemas tradicionais dos relacionamentos e levanta uma questão: é possível amar duas pessoas ao mesmo tempo?

Na trama, Alejandra (Verónica Sánchez), além de receber a noticia do suicídio de seu marido, Oscar (Álvaro Morte), descobre que ele levava uma vida dupla, com uma filha e outra mulher, Veronica (Irene Arcos). Apesar de estarem casados há 15 anos, ela percebe que não o conhecia totalmente. E se faz passar por uma desconhecida para investigar a vida de Veronica em busca de respostas, o que a levará pelo mesmo caminho trilhado por Oscar.

As duas mulheres são de universos opostos: Alejandra é uma arquiteta bem-sucedida de Madri, urbana, perfeccionista, controladora, e tudo na sua vida precisa se encaixar. E Veronica vive em Albufera de Valência, região dedicada ao cultivo de arroz. Ela é uma mulher espontânea, destemida, que possui um grande magnetismo, força e sensualidade.

O LIFETIME exibe dois inéditos por semana, aos sábados, às 21h40.

No primeiro inédito de hoje, chega o momento de encarar a verdade. Veronica vai à cidade para a leitura do testamento de Oscar mas, antes de ir, ela quer conversar com a outra mulher dele, contar que eles tinham uma filha e que viveram uma história de amor de oito anos. No entanto, a mulher que encontra não se parece em nada com a Alejandra carinhosa de que Oscar falava.

Em seguida, no sexto episódio, Alejandra começa a se desestabilizar, não entende por que não consegue virar a página e deixar de ver Veronica. Katia, Blanca e Ada se mobilizam para ajudá-la e a apoiam em seu pior momento: está triste, desorientada e não quer saber mais nada dos arranha-céus em que ela trabalhou por tantos anos. É quando reaparece Fran, o melhor amigo de Oscar, para tentar devolver a paz à sua vida. CI: 18

NBAのジュニア選手育成事業。女子スポーツの活性化にも繋がるか

 Cache   

女子バスケットボール

NBAでは「Jr.NBA」という6歳から14歳を対象としたジュニア選手育成事業を展開している。Jr.NBAは無料の会員制サービスで、自チームを登録すれば、Jr.NBA主催のバスケットボールクリニックやイベントに参加が可能。さらに指導者は、ホームページで提供されている幅広い練習メニューや、指導方法の動画にアクセスすることができる。

動画引用元:jr. nba

この事業の一環として2018年に始まったのが、女子選手に特化した育成プログラム「Her Time to Play」だ。このプログラムでは、登録チームとリーグに対して、初心者と上級者の2つのレベルに応じた独自のカリキュラムを配布。競技の技術力向上だけでなく、チームワークやリーダーシップ、目標達成能力なども重視し、全人的な教育を行っている。

またNBAは、全国各地でのバスケットボールクリニックを通して、直接的な指導にも力を入れる。アトランタ・ホークスは、女子を対象としたクリニックを開催しており、60人以上の選手が参加。様々な練習メニューに加え、車いすバスケットボール女子アメリカ代表のベイリー・ムーディー選手や、WNBA選手のレニー・モンゴメリー選手によるトークセッションも行われた。

2008年以降、若い世代のスポーツ参加率は7%ほど減少しており、女子バスケットボールへの参加率も低い。女子が14歳までに団体競技をやめる割合は、男子の約2倍であることも分かっている。

Her Time to Playでは、女子バスケットボールを通して人間的にも成長できる環境を提供。また、現役選手や関係者をロールモデルにすることで、女子の継続的なスポーツへの参加を促進している。このような取り組みが、女子スポーツの活性化に繋がることを期待したい。

Air Peace boss Onyema’s passport seized by EFCC over $44.9 million wire deals

 Cache   


The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) has seized the passports of airline magnate Mr. Allen Onyema pending investigation into his indictment for alleged $44.9 million wire deals and money laundering in the United States (US).

His movement has also been temporarily restricted until the outcome of the probe.

Onyema and his chief finance officer Ejiroghene Eghagha are facing the probe which followed the EFCC’s receipt of their indictment by the US Department of Justice (DoJ).



Six US agencies, including the immigration office, sources said, are handling the case in America.

According to the US government, the suspects are to face trial for alleged bank fraud, credit application fraud, money laundering, and aggravated identity theft.

An EFCC special panel is investigating the Nigerian component of the deals. Onyema, a source said, was grilled on Wednesday.

Read Also: Fraud allegations: Group urges FG to protect Onyema
It was learnt that the fate of the Air Peace boss and Eghagha hangs on the Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty (MLAT) between Nigeria and the US. The treaty borders on the extradition of suspects to face trial in either country.

The source, who gave an update on the case, said: “Following his interaction with our detectives, it became imperative to restrict his movement to the country because we will need him from time to time.

“We have seized his passports for unfettered comprehensive investigation. And so far, he has cooperated with our team.

“During our interaction, he maintained his innocence. We have, however, made progress in our preliminary investigation”.

On the likelihood of extraditing Onyema to the US, the source added: “This depends on the MLAT between Nigeria and the US. For now, we are only investigating.

“The extradition process is within the purview of the Office of the Attorney-General of the Federation. You should not forget that the EFCC has to investigate, establish prima facie case and arraigning the suspects in court before any extradition application can be initiated.

“The US government knows what to do as far as the invocation of the MLAT is concerned. We are only fulfilling our own part of the collaboration with the relevant US agencies.”

The US agencies handling the case are the Drug Enforcement Administration, Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation, Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations, Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Commerce, and Department of Treasury.

Onyema and Eghagha were indicted on November 19 by the US Attorney’s Office, Northern District of Georgia in the DoJ.

They were charged with:

“Conspiracy to commit bank fraud;

“Bank fraud;

“Conspiracy to commit credit application fraud;

“Credit application fraud.

Additionally, Onyema was charged with 27 counts of money laundering; while

Eghagha was accused of one count of aggravated identity theft.

A document by the US DoJ itemised the allegations against the suspects and described how the prosecution is being coordinated.

The document said: “The Drug Enforcement Administration, Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations, Federal Aviation Administration, Department of Commerce, and Department of Treasury are investigating this case.

“Assistant U.S. Attorney Garrett L. Bradford, Deputy Chief of the Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs Section and Lead Strike Force Attorney, Irina K. Dutcher, and Christopher J. Huber, Deputy Chief of the Complex Frauds Section, are prosecuting the case, with assistance from the Department of Justice’s Money Laundering and Asset Recovery Section and Office of International Affairs.

“This prosecution was brought as a part of the Department of Justice’s Organised Crime Drug Enforcement Task Forces (OCDETF) Co-located Strike Forces Initiative, which enables agents from different agencies to collaborate on intelligence-driven, multi-jurisdictional operations against a continuum of priority targets and their affiliate illicit financial networks.

“These prosecutor-led co-located Strike Forces capitalise on the synergy created through the long-term relationships that can be forged by agents, analysts, and prosecutors who remain together over time, and they epitomise the model that has proven most effective in combating organised crime.

” The specific mission of the Atlanta Strike Force is to disrupt and dismantle the most significant drug trafficking and money laundering organisations designated as Consolidated Priority Organisation Targets or Regional Priority Organisation Targets and their affiliates impacting the Atlanta metropolitan area and the Northern District of Georgia.”

Raptors empfangen Rockets zum Spitzenduell

 Cache   

Die NBA startet wieder voll durch.

Trotz des Rücktritts von Dirk Nowitzki, der nach 21 Jahren bei den Dallas Mavericks im vergangenen Sommer aufhörte, ist die beste Basketball-Liga der Welt attraktiver und spannender denn je.

Nach dem irren Trade-Sommer, in dem zahlreiche Superstars wie Anthony Davis (zu den Lakers), Kawhi Leonard (zu den Clippers), Russell Westbrook (zu den Rockets) und Kevin Durant (zu den Nets) die Franchise wechselten, ist eine Aussage zu den Kräfteverhältnissen extrem schwer.

Toronto ohne Leonard nur Außenseiter

Eines gilt als sicher: Die Toronto Raptors werden nach dem Abgang von Finals-MVP Leonard ihren Überraschungstitel aller Wahrscheinlichkeit nach nicht verteidigen können. Aber welches Team wird der Nachfolger?

Die Houston Rockets, ein Team aus Los Angeles oder vielleicht doch ein Team aus dem Osten? Die im Neuaufbau befindlichen Golden State Warriors sind spätestens nach der schweren Handverletzung von Superstar Stephen Curry auch kein Titelkandidat mehr.

One of the most compelling (and for the teams most maddening) realities of the NFL is that most games are close games Youth Donald Trump Jerseys , with the potential outcomes going either way. Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers recently illustrated that point in relation to his team’s 2018 season.“We could have won them all,” Rivers told Nick Hardwick and Jon Schaeffer of XTRA 1360 in San Diego. “Like we could have gone undefeated. We could have. And we also could have gone 6-10.”The Chargers went 12-4, and three of the losses came by 10 or more points. But they could have indeed won each of those three games — vs. Chiefs, at Rams, and vs. Ravens.The challenge for the Chargers in 2019 will be to forget about 12-4 and, more importantly, to forget about the way the season fell apart in the divisional round and to focus on winning one game at a time. All too often, teams that managed to string together a bunch of wins one year can’t duplicate it the next year, because they allow themselves to think based on a great record that it came easier than it did.It never comes easy. Which makes what the Patriots continue to do even more impressive. They’ve found a way to expunge the outcome of the prior season from their brains, and to focus obsessively on what’s next. If the Chargers can do that in 2019, they may get another crack at the Pats in January. A look at the teams selecting Friday night and where the Patriots fit in."The NFL Draft resumes tonight at 7 PM, and the Arizona Cardinals will be on the clock first at pick 33. Typically Friday is the more exciting day, especially for Patriots fans, because there is a lot of movement between teams.Last night, 5 picks in rounds 2 and 3 changed hands. The picks were: Other than that Donald Trump Jerseys Stitched , the draft order hasn’t changed since yesterday. Of course, there are rumors that Josh Rosen may be on the move at some point today, so that could certainly change, but, for now, the board looks mostly the same as it did yesterday.The Patriots have the most picks (five) tonight, with the Colts and Rams both having four. The Colts, however, have three picks in the second round, while the Rams have three in the third. As you probably know, the Patriots have two in the second and three in the third. Some teams that may be even more likely to trade picks are the Texans, Chiefs, and Eagles.That’s because they have picks bunched close together. The Texans have back to back picks at 54 and 55.Unless they love 2 guys there, it would be a great opportunity to get the guy they want and still trade down and get more picks. The Eagles are in a similar situation with picks 53 and 57, and the Chiefs hold nearly back to back picks at 61 and 63. All of those teams could be focused on one player in the spot they’re in and Youth Stephen Gostkowski Jerseys , while getting him, also trade back and pick up more assets.As far as the Patriots are concerned, the wait won’t be quite as long for them tonight, as they are picking 24th tonight, at pick 56. Then they’ll have a pick just eight picks later at 64, and nine picks after that at 73. Having picks relatively close together may allow them to trade back, or, possibly, trade a pick or two for a veteran who can make an immediate impact. Look for the Patriots to make some noise at the end of the second and top of the third. After 73, they have to wait until 97, but they again have picks very close together, because they will be on the clock again at 101.Having the number of picks they do, and the relatively small gap between most of their picks gives the Patriots a ton of options tonight. Last year, the Patriots dealt one of their 3rd rounders for Trent Brown. Will we see the same type of move this year? Will the Patriots trade up for a player they covet early in the second? Or, will the Patriots do what they did last year Stephen Gostkowski Jerseys Stitched , and use those picks to get some extra draft capital for next season?I think it could be a little of everything. With five picks, they can draft a few players, pick up a veteran, or maybe second year player (come to me, Josh Rosen), or even make a trade for a higher pick next year. I’m hoping for some fireworks, which we always assume that we won’t get, but, then again, we’ve always said we wouldn’t see the flashy first round WR, and that already happened, so maybe Bill has some more surprises for us this year.Full 2nd and 3rd Round OrderRound 2 33.

Trump cheesed off because Georgia governor doesn't want loudmouth impeachment defender for Senate

 Cache   

Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp has the ordinarily enviable opportunity to make someone's political career by appointing them to the Senate when Sen. Johnny Isakson resigns at the end of the year, but like so much else in Republican politics, Donald Trump has managed to make the once-pleasurable suddenly miserable.

Kemp recently squired his preferred pick, wealthy financial services executive Kelly Loeffler, to a secret White House meeting last weekend to secure Trump's blessing, but by all accounts, it went very poorly. According to the Wall Street Journal, the gathering "turned tense and ended quickly" because Trump strongly prefers Rep. Doug Collins, a loudmouth who has aggressively defended Trump throughout the impeachment process and will soon have an even more visible perch to do so as the top-ranking Republican on the House Judiciary Committee.

Trump reportedly even asked Kemp what the purpose of their meeting was if the governor had already made up his mind, though it's not clear that he has. Choosing Loeffler would make a certain amount of sense, though: As a first-time candidate, she doesn't have the same sort of baggage the arch-conservative Collins would bring in next year's special election, and she hails from the fast-growing Atlanta area while Collins represents a rural district in the state's northeast corner.

Loeffler is also fantastically rich: She's a part-owner of the Atlanta Dream, a WNBA team, and her husband, Jeffrey Sprecher, purchased the New York Stock Exchange (yes, he bought the stock exchange itself) for $8.2 billion in 2012. With the Peach State playing host to two competitive Senate elections in 2020, a self-funder could take some pressure off Republican Sen. David Purdue. Given Georgia's leftward political trends, all of this suggests Loeffler would make for a more appealing nominee than Collins (though the fact that she's a woman likely won't help the GOP as much as Republicans would like to believe).

But these considerations, of course, mean little to Trump—though what Trump cares about means a lot to Kemp.

AK-Sen: Former Democratic Sen. Mark Begich is hosting a fundraiser next month for orthopedic surgeon Al Gross, an independent who is seeking the Democratic nomination. Gross already had the support of the state Democratic Party in his bid to take on Sen. Dan Sullivan, the Republican who narrowly ousted Begich in 2014, and he currently faces no serious primary opposition.

Alaska backed Donald Trump 51-37, and neither party is acting like they expect this to be a major Senate battleground next year. Gross, though, may have the resources to make things interesting. The challenger, who entered the race in early July, raised $800,000 from donors and self-funded an additional $210,000 during the third quarter, and he ended September with $682,000 in the bank. Sullivan hauled in a smaller $667,000 during this time, but he finished the quarter with a $3.34 million war chest.

AL-Sen: The anti-tax Club for Growth has long detested the establishment-aligned Rep. Bradley Byrne, and they’re out with a TV spot hitting him well ahead of the March GOP Senate primary. The commercial takes aim at Byrne for supporting the Export-Import Bank, which is another favorite Club target.

The narrator accuses Byrne of voting “to fund a government giveaway program that hands out billions of dollars to help big companies make more profits overseas.” The narrator continues by saying that this group, which goes unnamed in the spot, sends “U.S. tax dollars to countries like China, Russia, and even Sudan, a state sponsor of terrorism.”

There is no word on the size of the buy, but Politico says it will run in the Mobile market, which includes all of Byrne’s 1st Congressional District, on Saturday during the Iron Bowl between in-state football rivals Auburn University and the University of Alabama. Politico also says that the commercial will run later on Fox News.

WV-Gov: GOP Gov. Jim Justice is going up with his first TV spot on Tuesday, a move that comes about five months after his main primary rival, former state Commerce Secretary Woody Thrasher, first began airing ads. Advertising Analytics reports that Justice’s inaugural ad campaign will run for $56,000 through Dec. 8, which is a fraction of the $879,000 that they say Thrasher has already spent on advertising.

Justice’s commercial opens with two well-known former West Virginia college football coaches, West Virginia University’s Don Nehlen and Marshall University’s Bob Pruett, declaring that most politicians are “full of empty promises,” but that Justice is different. The ad then shows people praising Justice for building roads, fighting for programs to combat opioid addiction, and being “a lot like Trump.” The spot concludes with Justice’s wife, state First Lady Cathy Justice, telling the audience that the governor “serves for all the right reasons. He loves West Virginia.”

AL-01: The anti-tax Club for Growth is out with another poll from WPA Intelligence that finds their endorsed candidate, former state Sen. Bill Hightower, taking first place in the March GOP primary for this open seat with 35% of the vote.

That’s still well short of the majority Hightower would need to win outright, though, and the survey finds state Rep. Chris Pringle edging Mobile County Commissioner Jerry Carl 16-13 for the second spot in a hypothetical runoff. Two other candidates, businessman Wes Lambert and Army veteran John Castorani, take just 2% and 1%, respectively.

All of these numbers are all almost identical to WPA’s late July poll, which showed Hightower at 34% as Pringle led Carl 16-12. Lambert also took 2% then, while Castorani had not yet joined the race and so wasn’t tested.

MO-Gov: The Democratic Governors Association is out with a survey from Public Policy Polling that gives GOP Gov. Mike Parson a 45-36 lead over Democratic state Auditor Nichole Galloway. The DGA argues in their memo that, while Parson holds a clear lead right now, the fight over the eight-week abortion ban that he signed into law over the summer could “drastically alter” the contest. A federal judge halted the law in August one day before it was to go into effect, and the state is currently appealing the ruling.

NC-05: GOP Rep. Virginia Foxx announced earlier this month that she would seek re-election even though it’s not yet clear what map she’ll be running under. The GOP legislature recently passed a congressional map, but plaintiffs are challenging it in state court.

Tuesday, Nov 26, 2019 · 7:42:03 PM +00:00 · Jeff Singer

NY-01: Suffolk County Legislator Bridget Fleming announced Tuesday that she would seek the Democratic nomination to take on GOP Rep. Lee Zeldin. Fleming was elected to represent the Southampton are on the county legislature in 2015, three years after she unsuccessfully ran for the state Senate, and she won her third term earlier this month by a 60-40 margin.

Fleming joins 2018 nominee Perry Gershon and Stony Brook University professor Nancy Goroff in the primary in what is already shaping up to be an expensive contest for this eastern Long Island seat. Goroff entered the contest in July and raised a hefty $518,000 during her opening fundraising quarter, and she ended September with $418,000 in the bank.

Gershon, who lost to Zeldin 51-47 last year, hauled in just shy of $200,000 during the third quarter of 2019, and he had $475,000 to spend. Zeldin has always been a strong fundraiser, and he took in $601,000 and had $1.17 million in the bank.

This seat swung from 50-49 Obama to 55-42 Trump, but it shifted back to the left last year. However, Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo still only carried the district by just a 49.1 to 48.6 spread while he was winning a 23-point blowout statewide, so this is still challenging turf for Team Blue even in a good year.

Tuesday, Nov 26, 2019 · 7:58:03 PM +00:00 · Jeff Singer

NY-17: This week, two new candidates joined the crowded Democratic primary for this open and reliably blue seat. One of the new arrivals is Army veteran and combat veteran Asha Castleberry-Hernandez, who served as engagement officer in Iraq and Kuwait in 2014 and 2015 and later worked on the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign as a Middle East foreign policy advisor.

Castleberry-Hernandez, who is the first black woman in the race, stressed her support for gun safety by saying, “I was almost a victim of gun violence in White Plains when I was almost shot at walking through a line of fire with my sister … where a young man has a small arm shooting at one of his opponents.”

The other new Democratic candidate is former federal prosecutor Adam Schleifer. Schleifer was involved in the Operation Varsity Blues investigations of several wealthy parents in the college admissions scandal, and he represented the government when actress Felicity Huffman appeared in court in March after being charged with bribery.

TX-13: Asusena Reséndiz, who finished a stint last year as head of the Fort Worth Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, announced Tuesday that she would seek the GOP nod for this seat in the Texas Panhandle. Reséndiz also was appointed in 2017 to serve on the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs by GOP Gov. Greg Abbott.

GA-Sen-B: Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp has the ordinarily enviable opportunity to make someone's political career by appointing them to the Senate when Sen. Johnny Isakson resigns at the end of the year, but like so much else in Republican politics, Donald Trump has managed to make the once-pleasurable suddenly miserable.

Kemp recently squired his preferred pick, wealthy financial services executive Kelly Loeffler, to a secret White House meeting last weekend to secure Trump's blessing, but by all accounts, it went very poorly. According to the Wall Street Journal, the gathering "turned tense and ended quickly" because Trump strongly prefers Rep. Doug Collins, a loudmouth who has aggressively defended Trump throughout the impeachment process and will soon have an even more visible perch to do so as the top-ranking Republican on the House Judiciary Committee.

Trump reportedly even asked Kemp what the purpose of their meeting was if the governor had already made up his mind, though it's not clear that he has. Choosing Loeffler would make a certain amount of sense, though: As a first-time candidate, she doesn't have the same sort of baggage the arch-conservative Collins would bring in next year's special election, and she hails from the fast-growing Atlanta area while Collins represents a rural district in the state's northeast corner.

Loeffler is also fantastically rich: She's a part-owner of the Atlanta Dream, a WNBA team, and her husband, Jeffrey Sprecher, purchased the New York Stock Exchange (yes, he bought the stock exchange itself) for $8.2 billion in 2012. With the Peach State playing host to two competitive Senate elections in 2020, a self-funder could take some pressure off Republican Sen. David Purdue. Given Georgia's left-ward political trends, all of this suggests Loeffler would make for a more appealing nominee than Collins (though the fact that she's a woman likely won't help the GOP as much as Republicans would like to believe).

But these considerations, of course, mean little to Trump—though what Trump cares about means a lot to Kemp. Trump's unexpected intervention in last year's GOP primary for governor was a major factor in Kemp's dominant come-from-behind win in the runoff over the establishment favorite, Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle, who’d led the voting in the first round. Trump also campaigned for Kemp in central Georgia just before Election Day; whether or not that rally was actually a boon is an open question, but Kemp's indebtedness to Trump is not.

That debt might explain the statement a Kemp spokesperson provided after the WSJ published its article, saying the governor "plans to appoint a strong supporter of the President who will end the impeachment circus and advance conservative policies that Keep America Great." But while that might sound like a nod toward Collins, Loeffler similarly pledged to "stand with President Trump … to Keep America Great" in her application for the soon-to-be-vacant Senate post.

As for when all this drama might finally conclude, no one's sure. Isakson has said he'll step down on Dec. 31, though there's nothing stopping Kemp from acting before then. The WSJ says that Kemp's team "has discussed announcing the decision after Thanksgiving," but the upshot of that discussion we aren't privy to.

MO-02: The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that both parties expect Democratic state Sen. Jill Schupp to challenge GOP Rep. Ann Wagner next year in this suburban St. Louis seat, though Schupp has not yet said anything publicly. Missouri’s 2nd Congressional District backed Donald Trump 53-42, but Wagner only won re-election last year 51-47.

Schupp flipped an open GOP-held seat during the 2014 red wave by defeating Republican Jay Ashcroft 50-47 in a district that had backed Barack Obama by the same spread two years before. Senate District 24 went on to support Hillary Clinton 53-42 in 2016 (Ashcroft was elected secretary of state that same year), and Schupp won re-election in 2018 61-37 after raising what the paper describes as a “menacing $1 million.”

TX-17: Republican Renee Swann, who runs an eye surgery practice in Waco, announced Tuesday that she was joining the March primary for this open seat.

FL-15 : The Justice Department is currently investigating whether freshman Rep. Ross Spano violated campaign finance laws during his 2018 GOP primary, and he could face a rematch with the person he beat in that contest. The Ledger recently asked former state Rep. Neil Combee, who lost 44-34 last year, if he was considering running in next year’s GOP primary, and while he responded, “I have not,” Combee didn’t stop there.

After speaking at length about Spano's predicament, Combee concluded, "I would not do anything until this is settled." That could just be some free consulting advice to anyone who might be listening, or could mean that Combee is waiting to see how everything wraps up before deciding whether to run for this seat a second time.

Combee did say that he’d heard that other Republicans are considering challenging Spano, but he refused to name anyone. However, Sean Harper, who took third place in the primary with 10%, told the paper he didn’t plan to run, though there’s no quote from him in the story.

PA-16: Republican Rep. Mike Kelly was busted hard by a local news station earlier this year for selling used cars that were subject to safety recalls, including some with deadly airbags, so what has he done since then? Continued to sell used cars that are still subject to safety recalls—including some with deadly airbags.

Kelly, who represents the 16th Congressional District in Pennsylvania’s northwest corner, had refused to comment when dogged WTAE report Paul Van Osdol first broke this story in May, but Van Osdol was finally able to track down Kelly in person. Kelly was non-responsive, though, when Van Osdol directly asked him, "Why were you selling vehicles with open safety recalls?" But when asked if he was still selling such cars, Kelly made an offer that he now wishes he could take back: "Why don't you come up and check it like you did last time?" the congressman proposed. "You can do that, come up and check them and maybe we'll have someone show you through our lot. You can take a look and see."

Of course, Van Osdol did just that. He found 15 vehicles still under active recalls at just one Kelly dealership, with one sedan still carrying a type of airbag, made by a company called Takata, that's been responsible for at least 24 deaths. Those killed include 26-year-old Jewel Brangman, who died in 2014 when a Takata airbag went off after a minor crash, firing a burst of metal fragments into her neck that severed her carotid artery.

Van Osdol also discovered that Kelly's website was advertising five affected cars as "GM-certified," even though General Motors only allows vehicles to be designated as such if all outstanding recalls have been addressed. A GM spokesperson insisted that the vehicles had been removed from the "certified" list but couldn't explain why the dealership was still describing them that way. Meanwhile, Kelly's son Brendan, who runs the lot in question, declined to speak with Van Osdol.

You may be wondering at this point how it's even possible Kelly could sell such cars in the first place. It turns out that in his home state, it's perfectly legal: After an organized push by used car dealers in at least 11 states, both Pennsylvania and Tennessee changed their laws to allow dealers to sell vehicles that have been recalled—as long as they note the recall "somewhere in a stack of sales documents," as one in-depth investigative report put it.

As Van Osdol noted in his original exposé, when a similar bill came before Congress in 2015, one key supporter insisted, "There is not a single person in our business that would ever put one of our owners in a defective car or a car with a recall." That congressman's name? Mike Kelly.

NJ-02: Freshman Rep. Jeff Van Drew infuriated progressives across the country after he was one of just two Democrats to vote against formalizing the impeachment inquiry into Donald Trump, but he may have more immediate problems with Democratic power brokers at home in this competitive South Jersey seat.

Six unnamed Democratic leaders tell the New Jersey Globe’s David Wildstein that Van Drew “could lose contests for organization lines at county conventions early next year,” which would be a very big setback for him in the June primary. In New Jersey primaries, a candidate endorsed by the local party appears in a separate column on the ballot along with other party endorsees, a designation known colloquially as the “organization line.” Party machines are still quite powerful in the Garden State, so Van Drew could struggle if a rival can win over enough organization lines next year.

Van Drew doesn’t currently face a serious intra-party foe, but Montclair University political science professor Brigid Callahan Harrison says she’s considering taking him on. Harrison declared that the congressman's opposition to impeachment has “made himself persona non grata within his party and the House leadership, which impacts every resident of New Jersey’s 2nd Congressional District.”

Harrison also argued that Van Drew’s stance has already hurt his party at home. Harrison pointed to the results of the Nov. 5 legislative election in Van Drew’s old 1st Legislative District where a trio of Democratic incumbents, who ran as the “Van Drew team,” all lost. Harrison said that the result in LD-01, where the GOP scored their only pickup of the night, demonstrated that local Democratic voters “rejected the Van Drew team because of his impeachment vote and crossed party lines” to support the Republicans.

Harrison has only run for office once. Back in 1993, she ran what Wildstein describes as a “strong race for Atlantic County Freeholder” where she narrowly lost to a GOP incumbent.

Other Democrats may also be interested in challenging Van Drew. One local leader mentions Assemblymen Vince Mazzeo and Adam Taliaferro as possibilities, though Mazzeo quickly said it was unlikely he’d take on the incumbent.

If Van Drew does win renomination, he’ll need to quickly prepare for an expensive general election in a seat that Trump carried 51-46. Wealthy businessman David Richter, who is the only notable Republican in the race right now, only raised $113,000 from donors during his opening quarter, but he self-funded another $300,000 and had $390,000 to spend at the end of September. Van Drew took in $529,000 during this time and had $932,000 in the bank.

Hempstead, NY Town Supervisor: On Thursday, Democratic incumbent Laura Gillen conceded defeat to Republican Donald Clavin. Gillen had been waiting for absentee and affidavit ballots to be counted from the Nov. 5 election, but they ended up increasing Clavin’s lead from 1,392 votes to 1,650. Gillen’s win two years ago gave Democrats control of Hempstead, a Long Island town with a population of 775,000, for the first time in over a century.

CA-25: Former Trump campaign adviser George Papadopoulos, who filed paperwork with the FEC late last month, kicked off his campaign for California's vacant 25th Congressional District on Monday—on Fox and Friends, of course. Papadopoulos, the son of Greek immigrants, declared his fealty to Donald Trump's racist worldview in announcing he'd pursue "an American First agenda," despite the fact that the district he's seeking to represent has moved sharply away from the GOP in the Trump era.

Aside from his questionable political instincts, Papadopoulous brings some serious baggage with him: He was sentenced to two weeks in prison last year after pleading guilty to lying to federal investigators about his contacts with the Russian government as part of special counsel Robert Mueller's probe. He also does not appear to live in the 25th District, as the address on his FEC forms lists a residence in the 28th District (which is represented by none other than Adam Schiff). In fact, in his Fox appearance, Papadopoulous, who hails from Illinois, said he'd only been living in California for a year and a half.

He'll also be joining two other Republicans in the race who have much deeper ties to the area, former Rep. Steve Knight and Navy veteran Mike Garcia. Two Democrats are also running, Assemblywoman Christy Smith and political commentator Cenk Uygur. All candidates will run together on a single ballot on March 3 (the same day as California's Super Tuesday presidential primary); if no one wins a majority of the vote, a runoff will take place on May 12.

WA-Gov: Conservative activist Tim Eyman said last week that he didn’t currently have a party affiliation for his run for governor, and on Monday, he filed to run as an independent. Eyman is competing in the August top-two primary to take on Democratic Gov. Jay Inslee.

Republicans are hoping to win this office for the first time since the 1980 election, and right now, one of their candidates has considerably more money available than any of his intra-party rivals. Developer Joshua Freed, who is a former mayor of the Seattle suburb of Bothell, raised $115,000 from donors from early September through the end of October and self-funded an additional $500,000, and he ended last month with $533,000 in the bank. Two other Republicans, state Sen. Phil Fortunato and Republic police chief Loren Culp, had $40,000 and $10,000 to spend, respectively.

Inslee, who is seeking a third term, had $821,000 to spend at the end of October.

AR-Sen: On Monday, state Democratic Party chair Michael John Gray said that the party couldn’t find a “viable path” to get a new candidate on the ballot in the weeks since their only Senate contender, Josh Mahony, dropped out hours after the filing deadline. GOP Sen. Tom Cotton is currently running for re-election without a major-party opponent in what has become a very red state over the last decade.

IN-AG, IN-Gov: While former Evansville Mayor Jonathan Weinzapfel had been mentioned as a possible Democratic candidate for governor earlier this year, he recently told the Evansville Courier & Press that he was considering a 2020 bid for state attorney general instead.

Weinzapfel has often been named as a potential aspirant for higher office, but if he decides to go for it this time, he won’t face any opponents in a primary. Rather unusually, both parties in Indiana select nominees for attorney general at June conventions, and state Sen. Karen Tallian is already competing for the Democratic nod.

The picture for Republicans is also unsettled, though for far different reasons. That’s because the incumbent attorney general, Curtis Hill, is awaiting the outcome of disciplinary hearings that were held last month. In 2018, four women accused Hill of groping them at a party in March of that year, which prompted widespread calls from Hill’s fellow Republicans that he resign—calls he’s refused to heed.

That could change when former state Supreme Court Justice Myra Selby, who presided over Hill’s recent hearing, issues a report to the Indiana Supreme Court that could include a recommendation for his punishment. The court will eventually decide if the incumbent should face sanctions, which could lead to the loss of his law license—and thereby his job.

However, experts tell the Indianapolis Star they don’t think the court will disbar Hill, saying it’s much more likely that it will hand down some form of reprimand. It’s possible, though, that the court could issue a lengthy suspension that would force Hill to leave office since he’d be unable to perform his duties. It’s not clear when the Supreme Court will issue its ruling, though the paper says the process could take until the early spring.

Hill, however, is undeterred—and so are his critics. Earlier this month, Hill said that he’ll seek a second term, while a spokesperson for Republican Gov. Eric Holcomb quickly put out a statement saying, “The governor and lieutenant governor have been clear and consistent from the beginning: Curtis Hill should not be Attorney General of the State of Indiana.” Hill already faces a challenge for the nomination from attorney John Westercamp at the GOP’s convention next year.

FL-03: GOP Rep. Ted Yoho still hasn’t said if he’ll run for a fifth term despite his 2012 promise to only serve eight years, but a new poll says he wouldn’t have any trouble in a primary if he did.

The local firm Meer Research, which was assisted by the national GOP pollster Vox Populi, released a poll finding Yoho taking at least 71% of the vote in hypothetical matchups against 2018 opponent Judson Sapp, businesswoman Amy Pope Wells, and Clay County Commissioner Gavin Rollins. Meer tells us this survey was not done for a client.

Both Pope Wells and Sapp, who lost to Yoho 76-24 last year, are running, while Rollins says he would only consider if Yoho retired. Florida’s filing deadline isn’t until April, so Yoho can keep everyone guessing for a while longer. This North Florida seat, which includes Gainesville and Ocala, backed Donald Trump 56-40.

East Baton Rouge Parish, LA: An effort to form a new city in Baton Rouge's mostly white southeastern suburbs faces an uncertain future after opponents filed a lawsuit earlier this month challenging its creation. The move follows an October election where residents of the proposed city of St. George, which would be the fifth-largest in Louisiana, voted to establish their own municipality by a 54-46 margin.

The suit, led by East Baton Rouge Parish Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome, charges that St. George’s backers have failed to explain how the new city, which is currently unincorporated and receives services from the parish government, would provide necessary services like sanitation and policing on its own.

It also argues that St. George's incorporation would have a "substantial adverse impact" on the city of Baton Rouge, as well as other unincorporated areas of East Baton Rouge Parish, by necessitating cuts to government operations. Though the initial filing doesn't delve into details, the St. George area is more affluent than Baton Rouge; if it became its own city, it would divert a sizable proportion of current sales tax revenues away from Baton Rouge's own operating budget.

In addition, the suit says the proposed incorporation would violate the parish's governing charter, which specifies, "No additional city, town or village shall be incorporated in East Baton Rouge Parish" beyond the four in existence when the charter was last amended in 2007. Opponents say a parishwide election to again amend the charter would therefore be necessary, though St. George supporters claim the provision in question runs afoul existing state law.

While the lawsuit's opening salvo covers a lot of ground, the issue at the heart of this incorporation drive goes unmentioned. St. George supporters have said their ultimate goal is to create their own school district, which opponents have slammed because it would effectively set up a segregated school system, since St. George's 86,000 residents are overwhelmingly white while Baton Rouge is more than half black. The suit does allude to this backdrop, though: It says that after an earlier effort to incorporate a larger version of St. George failed in 2015, organizers shrunk the city's proposed boundaries and, in so doing, reduced its "minority representation" from 23% to 12%.

For now, the establishment of St. George is on hold: The law under which plaintiffs have brought their challenge specifies that the courts must first sign off before a new municipality can be incorporated. Opponents are also encouraging residents who don't want to become a part of St. George to ask Baton Rouge to annex their property, a step several hundred have already reportedly taken.

TX-17: Three more Republicans have joined the March primary to succeed retiring GOP Rep. Bill Flores over the last few days. On Friday, Elianor Vessali announced that she would resign her seat on the College Station City Council to run here. Vessali was only elected last year, but she’s currently the only candidate in the race who has held local office in this district.

Another new GOP arrival is Todd Kent, who has worked for a number of universities. Kent has a doctorate from the local Texas A&M University, and he went on to serve as an assistant dean for their Qatar campus and recently finished a stint as head of the University of Utah’s Asia Campus. Real estate agent Kristen Alamo Rowin also kicked off her bid for the GOP nod in recent days.

On the Democratic side, Marine veteran David Anthony Jaramillo also joined the contest. Jaramillo served in Iraq and later became attached to the White House Military Office. Jaramillo joins 2018 nominee Rick Kennedy, who lost to Flores 57-41.

This seat, which includes College Station, Waco, and a slice of the Austin suburbs, supported Donald Trump by a wide 56-39 margin, but Republican Sen. Ted Cruz defeated Beto O'Rourke here last year by a narrower 54-45 spread. This district should remain in Republican hands, but it's possible the trends here could give Democrats an opening if they field a strong candidate.

NY-21: GOP Rep. Elise Stefanik said Friday that she’d raised $500,000 in the two hours following her Fox News appearance the previous evening. Her announcement came days after Democrat Tedra Cobb said that her own campaign had raised $1 million during the previous weekend. Cobb also challenged Stefanik last year in this 54-40 Trump seat and lost by a similar 56-42 spread.

Stefanik infuriated progressives and delighted Trump fans nationwide with her antics during an impeachment hearing earlier this month. Stefanik sought to violate House Intelligence Committee rules by asking questions during time reserved for the committee's chair, Democrat Adam Schiff, and its top-ranking Republican, Devin Nunes. She then hopped on Twitter to lie about why she'd been cut off, falsely claiming that Schiff "REFUSES to let duly elected Members of Congress ask questions to the witness, simply because we are Republicans."

CA-22: Republican Rep. Devin Nunes unsurprisingly became the latest Trump sycophant to find himself dragged into the impeachment story when CNN reported on Friday that Lev Parnas, an associate of Rudy Giuliani's, is prepared to tell Congress that that Nunes met with an ousted Ukrainian prosecutor last year in order to dredge up dirt on Joe Biden.

Parnas, along with another associate, Igor Fruman, had been sent to Ukraine late last year by Giuliani to unearth information that might damage Biden, a potential Trump opponent in next year’s elections. One of the people Parnas connected with was Ukraine's former top prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, who was dismissed by the country's parliament early in 2016 after an international pressure campaign to secure his ouster on the grounds that he'd thwarted efforts to fight corruption.

According to his attorney, Parnas says he also set up a meeting between Shokin and Nunes in Vienna last year, shortly after Republicans lost the midterm elections. Parnas’ attorney now says that Shokin told his client that Nunes had specifically sought the same thing Parnas had been looking for: muck that could be used to smear Biden.

Shokin has denied he met with Nunes, but in an appearance on Fox News on Sunday, Nunes refused to answer a direct question about whether such a meeting had taken place. Instead, he predictably called said CNN's reporting "fake news” and threatened to sue the network, as well as the Daily Beast, which published a related story.

Nunes also bizarrely claimed he'd pursue some sort of criminal complaint, saying "it is not okay to work with someone who has been indicted on serious federal crime to build a media narrative and dirty up a member of Congress," and arguing that the very normal reporting these media outlets have engaged in amounts to "likely conspiring to obstruct justice." (It doesn't, but this is the sort of legal analysis we can expect from a guy suing a cow.)

That bit about an indictment, by the way, is reference to the fact that Parnas was arrested last month (while attempting to leave the country with one-way plane ticket) on charges that he'd illegally sought "to funnel foreign money" to U.S. politicians in a bid to gain influence.

But while Parnas may have a newfound desire to cooperate with investigators as a prison sentence looms, Nunes could still face serious trouble. As the Washington Post's Amber Phillips put it, "If these allegations are true, it would mean a powerful member of Congress who is deciding whether to impeach Trump over pressuring Ukraine attempted to help Trump by working to further his political goals in Ukraine." At the very least, he could face an ethics investigation by the House, which one senior Democrat, Washington Rep. Adam Smith, called "quite likely."

Whiteston Motion Pictures Making "History" [FJ014]

 Cache   

The inspirational rise and fall (and rise again) story of how Whitestone Motion Pictures came from the brink of throwing in the towel, to shooting a project for The History Channel.

If you've been listening to this podcast since the beginning, you know that there is only one person who's been featured on the show more times than show regulars JD and Yolanda. That person is Atlanta filmmaker Brandon McCormick of Whitestone Motion Pictures. After posting last week's bonus episode about Brandon's incredible database of feature film screenshots, it occurred to me that out of all the episodes in which he's appeared, I've never really given any kind of in-depth story about the history of Whitestone and his journey as a filmmaker. So today, that's what I have. This week's episode is a tad longer than normal, but I promise you'll savor every inspirational minute.

We cover such topics as:

  • How and why they do the kind of work they do
  • His affection for nostalgic and period pieces
  • His thoughts on artists vs. artisans and the significance of the difference
  • The trials and tribulations of almost making their first feature film and the lessons he learned
  • How the History Channel project came about
  • And of course, it wouldn't be a Brandon McCormick episode without some profoundly poignant ending that makes you wanna go out and conquer the world!

"The Salieri Syndrome: Feeling Mediocre - A New Perspective" [RFS-FJ009]

 Cache   

For all you artists who've ever felt mediocre, this episode is for you.<img title="Read more..." src="data:image/gif;base64,R0lGODlhAQABAIAAAAAAAP///yH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7" alt="" data-wp-more="more" data-wp-more-text="" data-mce-placeholder="1" />

"Amadeus" is easily one of my favorite movies. I can watch it over and over. It tells the tragic and fictional tale of Italian composer Antonio Salieri and his "complicated" relationship with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. It won F. Murray Abraham his first (and I think only) Oscar for Best Support Actor. In the film, Salieri laments at being just a mediocre composer when compared to the likes of Mozart (whom he claims to have killed).

As artists, we sometimes feel like Salieri, don't we? We see other people's work and feel like we pale in comparison. That we're just...mediocre. Today on the show we're going to explore this topic and see if we can't come to a new perspective that is healthier for our craft (and career).

On this episode, we'll hear from some talented Atlanta-based filmmakers, namely Chris Fenner (who you may remember from the very first "Short Ends" episode "What the Hell Are You?"); Dan Duncan of Remedy Films; and music video filmmaker Isaac Deitz. We also hear again from a Radio Film School favorite, Brandon McCormick of Whitestone Motion Pictures. Lastly, we hear from Yolanda Cochran, who recently finished a 6-month consulting gig at Netflix.

Short Ends - "It's Personal: The Power & Purpose of Passion Projects"

 Cache   

If you've ever had a desire to start (or finish) that passion project, THIS is the episode for you.

In all the years I've interviewed creatives from filmmaking to photography to music, a common theme I always hear is the necessity and desire to produce passion projects and personal work. In today's "Short Ends" episode, you will be inspired to complete your own. You'll glean insights into both the artistic and commercial justifications for doing personal work.

I follow up on my own journey to produce my passion project "Mixed in America," first referenced in RFS episode 3 "S.O.S. Atlantis." You'll hear me share some raw emotions via audio diaries I kept during the production.

You'll hear from Vimeo darlings Dan Riordan and Dana Saint of Gnarly Bay Productions. They share why they do personal work and how it's helped their business.

Canadian filmmaker Brent Foster of Foster Visuals shares how regret led him to produce his popular personal project "While I'm Here: The Legacy Project."

Finally, you'll be inspired by the words of Atlanta filmmaker Brandon McCormick of Whitestone Motion Pictures on why he perseveres as a filmmaker, despite dark times.

Liberty Tire Recycling to Match First $5,000 Donated to The Ray on Georgia Gives Day

 Cache   

 Liberty Tire Recycling announced today that they will be matching the first $5,000 donated to The Ray on Georgia Gives Day, December 3, 2019.

Georgia Gives Day falls each year on Giving Tuesday, a national day of giving following Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and is an opportunity for Georgians to take one day out of the shopping season to prioritize philanthropy and support nonprofits’ missions and year-round work.

Liberty Tire Recycling and The Ray are natural partners and have worked together on a signature project of The Ray - a two-mile rubberized asphalt paving project adjacent to The Ray’s 18 miles of I-85 in west Georgia. In 2017, the two partnered with Troup County to pave the new Tom Hall Parkway with 6,560,000 pounds of rubberized asphalt paving mix using rubber from scrap tires. This year, the Georgia Department of Transportation and the Federal Highway Administration funded a one mile test section of rubberized asphalt on all four interstate lanes of The Ray, from the Georgia-Alabama state line to mile marker one, as well as the entire parking lot of the Georgia Visitor Information Center in West Point. Approximately 42,240 pounds of processed rubber were upcycled into the asphalt project, accounting for 3,520 scrap tires.

Rubberized asphalt roads are a boon to the surrounding community. First, they remove scrap tires out of landfills or illegal dumps where they are breeding grounds for disease-carrying mosquitos and fire hazards. Those tires are then upcycled into a premium road that lasts 50 - 100 percent longer, are quieter, adept at managing stormwater, and is resistant to cracking even in extreme temperatures.

"Quiet, resilient and safe roads are core to our vision for the highway of the future,” said Harriet Anderson Langford, founder and president of The Ray. “We are so grateful for this support on Georgia Gives Day from our partners at Liberty Tire Recycling.”

“Liberty Tire Recycling and The Ray believe that innovation can make roads safer,” said Dewey Grantham, regional Vice President of Liberty Tire Recycling. “Innovation in transportation can be complication - but it can also be simple. Using scrap tire rubber in the road asphalt is one of those simple innovations that benefit everyone. Roads are safer and quieter to drive on, they have a longer life, and they are crack resistant. The rubber road on The Ray’s interstate is what Ray Anderson would call ‘so right and so smart.’ This is why Liberty and The Ray are perfect partners for road safety, sustainability, and innovative pavement.”

“Liberty Tire Recycling was one of the very first partners of The Ray. From day one they have shared research and data that has informed our work with Georgia DOT. In this season of giving we are grateful for their continued support and generosity,” said Allie Kelly, executive director of The Ray.

For more information about The Ray’s Georgia Gives Day Campaign please visit their campaign webpage. Donations are being accepted now.

About The Ray

The Ray is a proving ground for the evolving ideas and technologies that will transform the transportation infrastructure of the future, beginning with the corridor of road that is named in memory of Ray C. Anderson (1934-2011), a Georgia native who became a captain of industry and was recognized as a leader in green business when he challenged his company, Atlanta-based Interface, Inc., to reimagine the enterprise as a sustainable company—one that would pursue zero environmental footprint. Chaired by Ray’s daughter Harriet Langford, The Ray is an epiphany of the Ray C. Anderson Foundation. Learn more.

About Liberty Tire Recycling

Liberty Tire Recycling is the premier provider of tire recycling services in North America. By recycling more than 150 million tires annually, Liberty reclaims about 2.2 billion pounds of rubber for innovative, useful products. The recycled rubber produced by Liberty is used as crumb rubber and industrial feedstock for molded products; as tire-derived fuel for industrial kilns, mills and power plants; and as rubber mulch for landscaping and playgrounds. The company maintains a network of processing plants and comprehensive door-to-door collection services. Learn more.


          

A Decade of Care: Hanes Launches 10th National Sock Drive to Help the Homeless; Tops 3 Million Donated Pairs

 Cache   

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C., November 22, 2019 /3BL Media/ – Small gifts often have the most meaning.

For the millions of people living homeless, a clean pair of socks is often described as “the gift of humanity.” Hanes, America’s No. 1 basic apparel, underwear and sock brand, is partnering with organizations fighting homelessness nationwide to deliver comfort to those who need it most through the Hanes National Sock Drive. The brand is marking 10 years of helping provide care and compassion during this year’s drive by:

  • Donating more than 250,000 pairs of socks directly to organizations fighting homelessness in all 50 states, along with Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. Since the program’s inception in 2009, Hanes has provided more than 3 million pairs of socks – one of the most requested items by relief agencies – to help the homeless.

  • Giving an additional pair of socks for every order of any apparel placed in December on Hanes.com. Socks will be provided to local homeless shelters.

  • Partnering with Rainier Fruit Company for its second “Pears for Pairs” campaign, which is currently running in United Supermarkets, Harris Teeter, Wegmans, and Lunds & Byerlys stores. From late September through January, Rainier is donating a portion of the proceeds from bulk and bagged pear sales to the Hanes National Sock Drive. In 2018, the Pears for Pairs campaign resulted in 20,000 pairs of socks being donated to five nonprofits.

  • Offering consumers the opportunity to participate directly in the program by visiting www.hanes.com/donate to gift socks ($1), women’s underwear ($1), men’s underwear ($1.50) and bras ($6) that will be distributed in needed styles and sizes.

  • Continuing its 10-year collaboration with Invisible People and its founder, Mark Horvath, to help raise awareness about homelessness. Invisible People uses innovative storytelling, educational resources and advocacy to help change how the public views homelessness and those living homeless in the United States and abroad.

“Most of us take basic apparel for granted, but we know a new, clean pair of socks can mean a lot to those experiencing homelessness,” said Sidney Falken, chief branding officer, HanesBrands. “We are committed to bringing a little comfort to those who need it most – and it is incredibly gratifying to have others, including many individuals across the country, join us in this effort.”

More than 100 agencies, including The Salvation Army Bell Shelter (Bell, California), Homeward Bound (Asheville, North Carolina) and Compassion Outreach Ministries (Columbus, Ohio), have received sock donations from Hanes.

“Small things really do make a big difference to our clients,” said Steve Lytle, director of The Salvation Army Bell Shelter. “The smile on a client’s face when she received a clean pair of socks for the first time in months was priceless. There was joy in her eyes and it was clear that the socks were the most precious gift she could have received in that moment. Another client said his gift of clean socks was a sign that there are people who care and that his life did matter.”

Homeward Bound distributes more than 2,000 pairs of socks a month to those living homeless.

“Homelessness is a community problem and it will take everyone’s support to help end the epidemic,” said Ashley Campbell, the agency’s outreach specialist. “Right now, some of your neighbors are living outside, in tents and under bridges, vulnerable to inclement weather and violence, stripped of dignity and our collective respect.

“There are so many ways to help,” Campbell continued. “Educate yourself about homelessness in your community, volunteer at your local agency fighting this issue or simply make a donation that would help a nonprofit save its limited resources.”

Jeffrey Tabor, director of TWO Men’s Ministry House for Compassion Outreach Ministries of Ohio, added that there is no donation too small to be used for good to fulfill a basic human need.

“Imagine the importance of just one pair of socks when you are focused on keeping your feet dry and warm during the cold winter months,” Tabor said. “That’s why we are so thankful for our partnership with Hanes, which has fulfilled an immediate, basic human need for so many people.”

Lytle underscores, however, that sometimes it all boils down to human contact. “Acknowledge people who are experiencing homelessness with a smile or hello,” he said. “By engaging with a person who is experiencing homelessness we are saying ‘I see you and you matter.’”

The Hanes National Sock Drive is part of Hanes for Good, the corporate responsibility program of Hanes’ parent company, HanesBrands (NYSE:HBI).

Family, food and football. Three of the best things in life came together on Thanksgiving with the NFL’s tripleheader slate on Thursday. As everyone came together to watch football, the NFL delivered a satisfying day we’ll never forget. Sports fans sat down with their families expecting the Chicago Bears-Detroit Lions clash to be the green bean casserole of the NFL’s Thanksgiving menu. Instead, it delivered plenty of entertainment and only increased everyone’s appetite for more great football with a close contest that came down to the final minute. The matchup between the Buffalo Bills and Dallas Cowboys served as the side dish for Thursday’s slate. The Bills catered some exciting plays and incredible performances for everyone to enjoy. Meanwhile, the Cowboys fell flat in front of another national audience and left everyone wondering about their future. NFL fans then received quite the dessert to end Thursday night.

Friday, Nov 29

SAINt JHN, Kodie Shane
Saint Jhn first showed up on my radar when he came in crooning alongside Blue Ivy Carter on “Brown Skin Girl,” a stand-out track from Beyoncé’s The Lion King: The Gift. After some further digging, it quickly becomes clear why Yoncé invited the Guyanese-American rapper/singer/songwriter/producer, who grew up splitting time between Brooklyn and Guyana, for the track. Sonically speaking, everything is working on his sophomore full-length, Ghetto Lenny’s Love Songs, from opening track “Wedding Day” to slappable songs like “Trap” featuring Lil Baby, and “Who Do You Blame.” Now he’s touring in support of the project, with Kodie Shane, a Black, queer rapper from Atlanta, as opener. Shane’s recent vibey single “End Like That” should convince you to get to the Hawthorne in a prompt manner. (Fri Nov 29, 8 pm, Hawthorne Theatre, $22-25, all ages) JENNI MOORE

Ha-Ha Harvest Comedy Fest
The Ha Ha Harvest Comedy Festival is bringing a cornucopia of laughs to town this holiday weekend and with a line-up featuring hometown hero Nathan Brannon, LA oddball Ron Lynch, Denver’s Janae Burris and Adam Cayton-Holland, NYC’s Dave Hill, and more, we've got plenty to be thankful for. Boasting a multi-venue format that echoes the Bridgetown Comedy Festival days of yore, you’ll spend the entire weekend hopping between clubs and venues while catching beloved homegrown shows like Pitch, Please!, Minority Retort, and Spec Script, delightful offerings from out-of-towners, along with more traditional stand-up showcases. Visit the event website for a complete list of venues, performers, and shows, along with ticketing info. (Fri-Sun Nov 29-Dec 1, Various Locations, $29-79) CHIPP TERWILLIGER

Amenta Abioto, Noah Simpson Group
I just can’t shut my trap when it comes to Amenta Abioto, whose work is a fluid combination of jazz, hip-hop, soul, and African music. To see her perform live is a real treat—Abioto has been at the top of her game recently, having perfected her soul-stirring vocals, improvised song-construction, and spot-on comedic timing. (Fri Nov 29, 8 pm, Turn! Turn! Turn!, $5-10) JENNI MOORE

Sleepover Club, Dress Forms, Ex-Kids
Everett's Sleepover Club link up with Portland's Dress Forms and Ex-Kids for a Friday-night punk, garage and post-punk bill at No Fun. (Fri Nov 29, 9 pm, No Fun, $5)

Turnover, Men I Trust
Turnover is clearly having some sort of major growth spurt. A few years ago, the Virginia Beach band was part of emo’s new wave, cranking out buzzy pop-punk tunes on a couple of albums released by Run for Cover Records. But on Good Nature, Turnover completes its transition into a dreamy indie pop band, with chiming guitars, laid-back vocals, and gauzy vibes. Often when this kind of thing happens, the artist stays tight-lipped on the reasons, but Turnover is open and honest about the stylistic shift, which it attributes to a wider palette of influences over the past few years: vintage soul and blues, Frank Ocean, electronic, the Beach Boys, bossa nova music, and jazz.

Starving for Laughs: A Benefit for the Oregon Food Bank
Forget the buying and consuming part of Black Friday, and instead celebrate the laughing and helping part at this holiday comedy stand-up showcase benefitting the Oregon Food Bank, hosted by Jono Gindhart, Bryan Bixby, and Chase Anderson, with sets from Zehava Glazier, Chris Johnson, Cam Strong, Kandyce August, and Will Weldon.

Snap! Y2K: The Missy Elliott Party
The November installment of the beloved monthly '90/'00s dance night invites you to come down and work off that Thanksgiving hangover with a little help from the sounds of Missy Elliott, along with resident DJ's Freaky Outty, Colin Jones, and Introcut. (Fri Nov 29, 9 pm, Holocene, $6-7)

Portland Trail Blazers vs. Chicago Bulls
When I was a kid, I’d load up EA’s Bulls vs. Blazers and the NBA Playoffs into the ol' Sega Genesis, and I'd rewrite history; Terry Porter always scored 70 points a game, and Michael Jordan won nothing. Hopefully tonight, when the Blazers take on the Chicago Bulls, they can bring a video game to life better than, say… any of the Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat movies. Because yiiiikes.

Shpongle, Android Jones, Kayla Scintilla, VOLO, Luxora Major
Producer Simon Posford and flutist Raja Ram bring their pioneering psybient and psych-infused trance project across the pond to head up a special audio-visual experience in Portland. Android Jones, Kayla Scintilla, VOLO, and Luxora Major round out the proceedings, along with a full array of artisan vendors, stage performers, and more.

Kikagaku Moyo, Mope Grooves
Psychedelic five-piece Kikagaku Moyo started out busking on the streets of Tokyo in 2012, and now they’re touring the world as one of this decade’s most highly coveted acts. A couple years ago, the band came to town to play a pair of Pickathon sets, and, despite trying my best to make it to their performance at the Galaxy Barn, the venue hit capacity before I (and countless others) could make it inside. So it’s only right that Kikagaku Moyo—whose moniker translates to “geometric patterns” in Japanese—is making another visit to the City of Roses this fall. After all, Portland’s scene of eclectic, psychedelia-loving listeners is exactly the kind of audience the band wanted to engage when they left Japan.

Brian Posehn
The beloved comedian, writer, and actor known for his roles on Mr. Show, W/ Bob and David, The Sarah Silverman Program, and most recently, The Mandalorian (he's the space-Uber driver who gets eaten by a giant ice worm thingy after picking up a fish-faced Horatio Sanz! Spoilers! It's a weird-ass show!) brings his unrivaled charm and wit back to town for a headlining show at Revolution Hall. (Sat Nov 30, 8 pm, Revolution Hall, $25-30, all ages)

Thievery Corporation, Brazilian Girls
An evening of dub, electronica, and trip hop with the Washington, D.C.-based recording artist and DJ collective headed up by Rob Garza and Eric Hilton. (Sat Nov 30, 8:30 pm, Roseland, $42.50-69.50)

The Sisters of Mercy: Divine Sketch Comedy
The Siren Theater is where you go if you want to be blessed by divine sketch comedy minds like the ones counted among The Sisters of Mercy: Shelley McLendon, Laura Sams, Lori Ferraro, Erin Jean O'Regan, and Marie Murphy. Tonight is the last chance to catch this show. Do not live a life absent of witnessing this comedy divinity! (Sat Nov 30, 8 pm, Siren Theater, $10-15)

Mr. Carmack
The rising Honolulu-based producer brings his experimental beats and EDM back to town for an all-ages stop on the "Immersion" Tour. (Sat Nov 30, 9 pm, Hawthorne Theatre, $19-22, all ages)

The Grotto's Christmas Festival of Lights
The Grotto's annual Festival of Lights celebration is a bonafide Portland tradition, transforming the serene grounds into one of the largest Christmas choral festival in the world. Walk a one-quarter mile long light trail, enjoy outdoor caroling, puppet shows, and a live petting zoo, and then take in one of over 190 concerts taking place in the Grotto's chapel. (Sat Nov 30, 5 pm, The Grotto, $6.50-12.50, all ages, through Dec 30)

Jana Crenshaw
Portland Singer/songwriter and theater score composer Jana Crenshaw takes over the Fixin' To for an early, all-ages show and a late-night, 21 & up performance celebrating the release of her latest, Bend & Break, which collects stand-out tracks from her previous three albums. Mic Crenshaw, Blacque Butterfly, Rain Ezra, Daisy Posada, Natalia Uribe, DonnaMation, and students of Ethos Music Center lend their talents to the proceedings. (Sat Nov 30, 12:30 pm & 9 pm, The Fixin' To, $7-10)

RAF, The Reverberations

(Sat Nov 30, 9 pm, Star Theater, $10-15)

La Fête du Macaron
A celebration of the French Macaron, filling the Pix pastry case with a wide variety of flavors. Also includes a contest to get your flavor carried at Pix past the celebration, and something called the "cupcake stomp," which seems like an abomination (why the hell would you want to destroy a perfectly good cupcake) but is supposedly "messy but fun." (Sat Nov 30, 2 pm, Pix/Bar Vivant)

Gloria!
The Portland Choir and Orchestra links up with Big Horn Brass for their annual Christmas concert at the Newmark Theatre, with over 150 performers bringing your favorite holiday classics to life in a wallet- and family-friendly performance. (Sat Nov 30, 2 pm & 7 pm, Newmark Theatre, $15-22)


Sunday, Dec 1

Lisa Prank, Rose Melberg
Seattleites have long sung the praises of their fave one-woman pop punk band, Lisa Prank (singer/songwriter Robin Edwards), and with good reason—her live shows are straight-up FIRE. Mining the fertile ground tilled by the Ramones, Shonen Knife, the Runaways, the Donnas, and various others of the riot grrrl persuasion, Edwards skillfully turns any room inside-out with her masterful expertise on electric guitar and a Roland MC-505 drum machine. Her newest release, Perfect Love Song, is more of the same mosh-pit perfection, guaranteed to jump-start any crowd into pogoing hysterics. Bring a sweat towel, you’ll need it! (Sun Dec 1, 9 pm, Doug Fir, $12-15) WM. STEVEN HUMPHREY

Morbid Angel, Watain, Incantation
Friends, have you accepted Satan into your heart and pledged fealty to the Dark One, embracing his message of materialism, sexual deviancy, and a rejection of the Judeo-Christian myths of yore? I can see some of you are still on the fence about this, unconvinced that a one-way ticket to Hades is the only way forward for all of us. If my message is not persuasive enough, please join me for tonight’s command performance by two of our finest death metal missionaries: Morbid Angel and Watain. The former are still promoting their 2017 album Kingdoms Disdained, a blistering collection that welcomed bassist/vocalist Steve Tucker back into the fold to help spread the gospel of evil. The latter comes to us from our outpost in Sweden to sing to us of sacred damnations and sleepless evils as they bathe us in animal blood. Hail Satan. (Sun Dec 1, 8 pm, Hawthorne Theatre, $30-35, all ages) ROBERT HAM

Breakfast with Santa
The Crystal Ballroom's Breakfast with Santa lets you and your family skip the mall and department store lines, giving you the chance to relax and enjoy a buffet style breakfast and house roasted coffee while waiting for a turn with Santa. It also happens to be one of the hottest tickets in town. (Sun Dec 1, 8:30 am & 11 am, Crystal Ballroom, $13-18, all ages)

Black Nativity
PassinArt presents this staging of Langston Hughes' "gospel song play," reinterpreting and reimagining the Nativity story. (Sun Dec 1, 2 pm, Bethel AME Church, $5-25, all ages)

My Friend Chuck
A live podcast episode of My Friend Chuck, the show about friendship, erotica, dinosaurs (sometimes), and much, much more, starring McKenzie Goodwin and two-time Hugo nominee Dr. Chuck Tingle, author of landmark works like Space Raptor Butt Invasion and Breaking the Fourth Butt: Eight Hot-to-Trot Meta Tinglers. (Sun Dec 1, 8 pm, Dante's, $20)

Olympia Provisions 10 Year Anniversary Party
For those who consider themselves to be fans of fine wine, salty meat, and combining the two at meal times, you might be a fan of Olympia Provisions, even if you've never been there before, and tonight's 10th Anniversary party is a good opportunity to finally go. Admission includes "a plethora of delicious food samples" with a full bar available as well. (Sun Dec 1, 4 pm, Olympia Provisions, $13)

Donte Thomas, King Wess
The latest installment of Sunday Sessions at Rontoms doubles as a music video premiere and release party for "Off White," the latest from Portland hip-hop artist Donte Thomas. Fellow rising local rapper King Wess rounds out the proceedings. (Sun Dec 1, 8 pm, Rontoms, free)

The Jackie & Laurie Show
The comedy podcast starring a pair of veterans in a stand-up scene that isn't particularly easy on women comes to Kickstand for a live episode. (Sun Dec 1, 1 pm, Kickstand Comedy Space, $20-25)

DOA Pro Wrestling: Naughty or Nice?
You haven't really done the holidays right if you don't start them by watching Santa himself come off the top rope with swagger and aplomb. Along with Saint Nick bringing the pain, the December DOA show includes the Portland debuts of Logan Stunt, MV Young, and the amazing Effy. (Sun Dec 1, 1 pm, Harvey's Comedy Club, $15-100, all ages)

Janresseger: Beware: Opponents of Elizabeth Warren’s Education Plan Have a Vested Interest in Expanding School Privatization

Janresseger: Beware: Opponents of Elizabeth Warren’s Education Plan Have a Vested Interest in Expanding School Privatization

In October, Elizabeth Warren released an exemplary plan for public education. As she campaigns across the country to be chosen as the Democratic candidate for President in 2020, I hope she will continue to advocate for the important principles in her public education plan.

In the past decade public schools in many places have been beleaguered by dropping state revenue in the 2008 recession and politicians further cutting taxes. And over several decades, a new philosophy of education has been acted into law by ideologues who promote corporate accountability driven by evaluating schools and teachers by students’ standardized test scores and punishing schools that fall behind in a system based on competition. Because aggregate test scores in any school have been shown by a half century of research to correlate with the family income of the students in the school, and because our society has become highly segregated by income, this system has shut down public schools in the poorest neighborhoods, produced state takeover of struggling big city schools and school districts, and prescribed school privatization—more charter schools and vouchers—as though it is a solution.

Warren’s plan turns away from corporate, test-and-punish school reform and calls for strengthening America’s public schools.  The plan demands that Congress quadruple the federal investment in Title I, the 1965 Great Society program to support public schools serving concentrations of children in poverty. Warren’s plan calls on Congress fully to fund the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, a federal program which mandates that schools provide specialized services for disabled students. In 1975, Congress promised to fund 40 percent of IDEA’s cost, but last year Congress continued years of underfunding when it chose to fund only 15 percent of the IDEA’s mandated programming.  Warren calls for adding 25,000 Community Schools, making these public schools into neighborhood centers for families in impoverished neighborhoods—with schools housing wraparound health, social service, and after school and summer programs right in the school building.  Warren calls for strengthening English language education for students whose primary language is not English, and she insists that the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights be strengthened after four years of Betsy DeVos’s weakening civil rights enforcement.

Warren also calls for reining in out-of-control diversion of public school funds to privatized charter schools and vouchers.  Warren would not only ban for-profit charter schools but she would also ban the lucrative arrangements by which states now permit nonprofit charter schools to be operated by for-profit management companies, which reap massive profits from our tax dollars.

Finally, Warren advocates ending the federal Charter Schools Program (CSP), a stream of federal grant money used by states authorizing charter schools and charter management organizations to start-up new charter schools. In a scathing report, Asleep at the Wheel, released last March, the Network for Public Education found that the federal Charter Schools Program, launched in 1994, has awarded $4 billion in federal tax dollars to start up or expand charter schools across 44 states and the District of Columbia.  This program has provided some of the funding for 40 percent of the charter schools across the country, but, as the Network for Public Education has shown, at least a third of the schools receiving CSP dollars either never opened or opened and then quickly shut down due to financial or academic problems. The findings by the Network for Public Education are mirrored in a series of  biennial investigations, beginning in 2012 by the U.S. Department of Education’s own Office of Inspector General, which has repeatedly condemned this program for lack of record keeping and the utter absence of oversight of states’ and charter management organizations’ use of the funds.

It shouldn’t be surprising that supporters of the rapid expansion of charter schools have begun condemning Warren’s education plan. Warren makes a solid case for curtailing the publicly funded expansion of privatized alternatives to public schools.  Advocates for  public education, however, strongly endorse Warren’s plan and dispute the arguments of the charter school supporters who are criticizing it.

Three weeks ago, in the Washington PostCarol Burris published a column to refute arguments being made against Warren’s education plan by charter school supporters.  Burris, was one of the authors of the Network for Public Education’s Asleep at the Wheel report.  In her column, Burris points out that in 2018, under U.S. Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, the federal Charter Schools Program was expanded to include a new funding stream, the National Dissemination Grants Program, under which DeVos began awarding federal grants from the CSP to charter school advocacy organizations themselves. In 2018, for example, under the new National Dissemination Grants Program, the National Alliance of Public Charter Schools received a federal grant of $2,385,960.  Burris explains: “The new National Dissemination Grants Program has… been a financial windfall for charter advocacy groups … Grants to private organizations totaled $16 million in 2018, federal records show.  Joining the National Alliance were the National Association of Charter School Authorizers and the California Charter Schools Association….”

Burris describes strong condemnation of Warren’s plan, for example, by Nina Rees, the president and CEO of the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools, who responded to the release of Warren’s plan in a fundraising letter: “Today Presidential candidate and Senator Elizabeth Warren called to end federal funding for the expansion of charter schools… Please contribute to the Charter Schools Action PAC today.”

Burris also describes resistance from Tom Torkelson, the leader of one of the nation’s largest chains of charter schools, IDEA Charter Schools. Burris explains: “Torkelson, the CEO of the IDEA charter chain has a… vested interest in the preservation of the Federal Charter Schools Program.  IDEA Charter Schools has received $225,000,000 from the Charter Schools Program since 2010. In 2018, IDEA had nearly $900 million in assets. That year, Torkelson earned over $550,000 from the charter chain and its related organization….” When Elizabeth Warren released her education plan, Torkelson sent this to his allies: “Senator Warren has proposed to cut the entire charter schools federal program. We need your help today.”

Finally Burris quotes Richard Barth, CEO of the KIPP Foundation and one of the founders of the huge Knowledge is Power Program (KIPP) charter school chain.  Barth condemned Warren’s education plan in a fund raising plea from the National Alliance for Public Charter Schools PAC. He wrote: “Friends, We can’t let Senator Warren’s plan of cutting charter school funding become reality.”  Burris adds that in 2010, KIPP charters received $218,457,063 from the federal CSP.

In a second column last week, Burris responds once again to charter school advocates’ attacks on Elizabeth Warren’s education plan.  In her recent column, Burris is joined by Kevin Welner, director of the National Education Policy Center at the University of Colorado at Boulder and a professor of education policy.  The Washington Post’Valerie Strauss published the column from Burris and Welner, and she adds that Welner, “was among the researchers consulted by Warren’s policy team as they drew up her education plan—but they (NEPC researchers) had no involvement in, or awareness of, this commentary” by Burris and Welner.

Burris and Welner confront charter school operators who have said they would lose essential dollars if the federal Charter Schools Program were eliminated. Burris and Welner note that because charter schools, like traditional public schools, receive federal Title I dollars and IDEA dollars, charter schools would gain more from Warren’s plan than they would lose from the elimination of the federal CSP: “Consider two… elements of Warren’s education plan.  First, she proposes quadrupling Title I funding so that it rises to levels that have long been pledged by Washington politicians but never actually reached. Secondly, and similarly, she would more than double federal funding for students with special needs served under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA)—again aiming for levels long promised but never fulfilled.”

Burris and Welner criticize charter schools for serving fewer English language learners, fewer students with disabilities, fewer homeless students, and fewer students eligible for subsidized lunch than the traditional public schools in their neighborhoods.

Burris and Welner add that federal Charter Schools Program grants have disproportionately been awarded to the enormous chains of charter schools which enrich their operators with huge salaries: “(A) greatly disproportionate amount of the funding has been funneled to large Charter Management Organizations.  The Success Academy charter chain in New York City, for example, has received $47,540,399 from CSP, even as it paid its CEO nearly $800,000 in 2016.”

Last week, charter advocates gathered in a public demonstration against Warren’s education plan.  As Warren addressed an audience at Clark Atlanta University, a crowd of charter school advocates in matched t-shirts showed up to challenge her proposal to cut support for charter schools.  It turns out that this was not a spontaneous grassroots protest; instead the crowd was recruited by charter school support organizations from across the country and led by Howard Fuller, the charter school advocate who also led organizing for the Milwaukee voucher program twenty years ago.  Chalkbeat‘s Matt Barnum reports: “Fuller, former Milwaukee schools chief and advocate for private school vouchers, told Warren that her language is helping anti-charter efforts across the country. A number of states, including California, Illinois, and Michigan, have recently moved to limit charter schools or cut their funding.”

Who were the people at the Clark Atlanta University protest? Barnum reports: “Fuller told Chalkbeat that roughly 200 people from a number of overlapping groups took part in the protest. That included the Freedom Coalition for Charter Schools, a group that Fuller started with Connecticut charter school leader Steve Perry. They (protest organizers) worked with the Powerful Parent Network—a collection of groups in Atlanta, Nashville, Memphis, and elsewhere… They were funded by an online campaign, which has raised over $16,000 from a mix of small donations and several anonymous $1,000 contributions.”  One of the participating groups, Memphis Lift, “has received $1.5 million from the Walton Family Foundation since 2015.”  Another participating group was the Oakland Reach: “(M)ost of the staff of the Oakland Reach, a parent group, was in Atlanta for the protest.  The Oakland Reach is funded by local and national foundations, including Walton and The City Fund, which is backed by John Arnold and Read Hastings… Bryan Morton, who leads a Camden group supported by The City Fund, was also present.”

Elizabeth Warren’s education plan is radical, ironically, simply because it supports America’s traditional system of public schools. While advocates for charter schools imagine using public tax dollars to create escapes for a small percentage of students from public schools into an unregulated education sector which has, incidentally, become saturated with corruption and academic failure, Warren’s plan aims instead to ensure well funded, high quality public schools in every school district.  Warren is suggesting the kind of adequate funding, for example, that public school teachers, on strike in Chicago, bargained for last month when they won a promise for an additional $35 million every year to restore reasonable class sizes across the district’s schools. The size of that increase alone for class size reduction is the clearest indication I have observed of how totally out-of-kilter funding for education has become in many states. Similarly, a central demand by striking teachers in Los Angeles was for the most basic level of staffing in every public school—including a school nurse, a certified librarian, a social worker, and an adequate number of guidance counselors.

Whatever happens with Warren’s candidacy in the Democratic primary election season, I hope she won’t back off her plan to demand justice for the public schools which serve nearly 50 million children and adolescents across the United States.

The 2019 NFL offseason has begun (no replies)

for the Philadelphia Eagles Jerome Brown Jerseys 2019 , which means Howie Roseman and Doug Pederson will spend the next couple of weeks evaluating the 2018 roster. It’s time to start figuring out what this team needs to do to get back to the Super Bowl. Today we’ll continue this roster outlook series by looking at the wide receiver position.THE PLAYERSNELSON AGHOLORRegular season stats: 982 snaps, 97 targets, 64 receptions, 736 yards (11.5 average), 4 TD, 3 rushes for 32 rushing yards, 1 passing attempt for 15 passing yards, 1 fumblePlayoff stats: 9 targets, 4 receptions Black Reggie White Jerseys , 38 yards (9.5 average), 1 rush for 12 rushing yardsReview: Agholor really stood out to me during the offseason. He simply looked faster than I ever remember, routinely burning corners deep during practice. I was thinking he was really going to build off his turnaround 2017 season. That never really happened, though, as he finished the 2018 season with volume numbers similar to last year. He was worse in efficiency, however, with four fewer touchdowns and a decrease in yards per reception.Outlook: It’ll be really interesting to see how the Eagles handle Agholor this offseason. The 2015 first-round pick is currently under contract at a $9.4 million cap figure for 2019. None of that money is currently guaranteed, though, since it’s a fifth-year team option. I really can’t see the Eagles being fine with keeping Agholor at that number. I would guess they’ll try to sign him to a team-friendly contract extension Reggie White Jerseys 2019 , citing Agholor’s massive struggles over his first two years as why the team can’t pay market price for him. If the Eagles and Agholor can’t agree to an extension, they might just have to move on. That would stink for the Eagles because he wouldn’t factor in to their compensatory pick formula when he signs elsewhere. Again, this is a tricky spot for the Eagles. It would be nice to not have to add slot receiver to the list of Philly’s needs this offseason but they shouldn’t overpay to keep Agholor around. PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Ezekiel Elliott took one giant leap that may have saved Dallas’ season.But it was Elliott’s go-ahead 1-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter that helped the Cowboys finally hurdle the Super Bowl champs.The Cowboys showed a second-half spark — and cooled the hot seat for coach Jason Garrett a few degrees — in a 27-20 win over the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night.Cowboys owner Jerry Jones burst into the locker room and channeled his inner Ric Flair with a “Wooo!” that perked up the winners. Jones hit the locker room like a politician stumping for votes, shaking hands with anyone within reach.“Now that was a win, I’ll tell you right now,” he said to a small circle of Cowboys.The Cowboys are just 4-5 but the victory steadied a franchise that saw Garrett again under fire and Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman call for major organizational changes for a franchise far removed from the Super Bowl heyday.Elliott and Dak Prescott quieted the doubters after a dazzling Sunday that put the champion Eagles’ season on the rocks.“You can imagine the way Jason Garrett, his resolve before the game,” Jones said. “I asked him before the game, ‘You feeling any pressure?’ (Garrett replied) ‘It just makes me want to go out and do more to turn this thing.'”Elliott made highlight reels and kept the Dallas’ NFC East title hopes alive when he extended a play in the first half. The Cowboys tried a fake punt on fourth-and-2 from their 31 and Jeff Heath took a direct snap and ran three yards. A few plays later Black Mike Quick Jerseys , Elliott hurdled Tre Sullivan on a 32-yard run to the Eagles 8. Michael Bennett sacked Prescott on third down and Brett Maher kicked a 31-yard field goal for a 6-0 lead.Was it Elliott’s best bound over a defender?“I’ll leave that up to you guys to decide,” Elliott said.Jones was positive it was Elliott’s finest.“We’ve seen him make that move before,” Jones said. “But I don’t know when I’ve ever seen him totally clear it.”While the Super Bowl champions are reeling, the Cowboys didn’t exactly look a serious threat to the NFC East crown. Prescott had 270 yards passing, tossed for one touchdown and also ran for a score. Elliott also had a TD reception , against an Eagles secondary depleted by injury.The Cowboys will need a win at Atlanta (4-5) next week and then a win Nov. 22 against division-leading Washington to really establish themselves as a playoff contender. It’s a leap of faith larger than anything attempted by Elliott that the Cowboys can wrest their way into the NFC playoff picture.But for a night, it was enough.“We had no choice but to win,” said Elliott, who cupped his hand to his ear as he walked off the field to boos.Garrett Mike Quick Jerseys 2019 , who has yet to lead Dallas to even an NFC title game, knew the magnitude of the rivalry game.“We were in a challenging situation,” he said. “We had to come up here and win a football game.”Both teams felt the pressure even before former President George W. Bush performed the coin toss . The Cowboys and Eagles got into a small pregame scuffle that ended on the sideline before players were ushered back into the tunnel.Dallas took a 10-3 lead into the half before Elliott and Prescott got rolling. Elliott ran in from the 1 to give Dallas a 27-20 lead after Prescott completed passes of 24 yards to Amari Cooper and 23 yards to Allen Hurns on the drive.It was the kind of drive that might have impressed Aikman. Aikman, who won three Super Bowls with the Cowboys, said this week “there has to be a complete overhaul of the entire organization .”The Cowboys just shrugged it off as just another controversy that didn’t concern them.“We’re Dallas Cowboys. You guys love to talk about us, you guys love to make stories,” Elliott said. “We’re used to ignoring all the extra stuff and focusing on us.”Eagles fans were spotted transporting a Cowboys coffin into Lincoln Financial Field , perhaps as a symbol of some sort of burial of Dallas’ season.Don’t hold those last playoff rites for the Cowboys just yet.“When you’re feeling low and you see the Grim Reaper,” Jones said Black Chuck Bednarik Jerseys , “and then you come in and have your team perform the way these guys did, I promise you, it is a special feeling.”

Carson Wentz was at his best back on the move again.Wentz tossed two touchdown passes Authentic Joejuan Williams Jersey , Darren Sproles ran for a score and the Philadelphia Eagles stayed in the hunt for the NFC East title with a 28-13 victory over the depleted Washington Redskins on Monday night.The Eagles (6-6) won consecutive games for the first time since Nick Foles led them to a Super Bowl victory over the Patriots.The Redskins (6-6) lost backup quarterback Colt McCoy to a serious right leg injury in his second game replacing Alex Smith, who broke his right tibia and fibula on Nov. 18. Mark Sanchez took his place.Redskins coach Jay Gruden said after the game that, from what he understands, McCoy fractured his fibula and will miss the rest of the season.Adrian Peterson ran 90 yards for a touchdown on Sanchez's first play under center, giving the Redskins a 10-7 lead. It was the longest run Philadelphia has allowed in franchise history but Washington's lead didn't last long.Wentz, who hasn't scrambled much since returning in Week 3 from surgery to repair two knee ligaments, didn't run for any yards. But he ran around and made big plays when he improvised and on designed rollouts."Anytime he can extend plays with his legs, he's such a great athlete, that's an advantage to the offense," coach Doug Pederson said. "Being able to do that allows us to stay on the field. He's gifted in doing that. It comes natural to him."Sproles put Philadelphia up 14-10 on a 14-yard TD run in the second quarter. Wentz tossed a 4-yard TD pass to Jordan Matthews and connected with Golden Tate on a 2-point conversion to extend the lead to 22-13 early in the fourth quarter.The Eagles twice failed to score inside the red zone and still managed their second-highest point total this season.They had a first down at the Redskins 2 in the second quarter Joejuan Williams Jersey Boys , but Josh Adams was stopped for a loss on fourth down from the 1.They had a first down at the Redskins 5 in the third quarter, but Wentz threw an interception right to Josh Norman.Wentz finished 27 of 39 for 306 yards. He came out firing and led the Eagles to a score on their opening drive for only the third time season.First, he scrambled out of the pocket, motioned Tate to go deep and lofted a 19-yard pass down the left sideline on a first-and-15. Wentz finished the drive by firing a 6-yard TD pass on the run to Tate."Play-action, bootlegs, nakeds, getting me on the edge, gives me a chance to make plays and we used that effectively," Wentz said.Dustin Hopkins kicked field goals of 47 and 44 yards for Washington."We have to get a plan ready for Mark moving forward," Gruden said. "We've got to play great football around him Youth Irving Fryar Jerseys , which we didn't do tonight."SANCHIZE TIMESanchez, a former first-round pick who led the New York Jets to consecutive AFC championship games in his first two seasons, is now a starter for the first time since he played for the Eagles in 2015."I'm grateful for the opportunity. I was praying for the opportunity," he said, adding his "heart definitely breaks for" McCoy and Smith.WELCOME BACKSproles scored his first TD since Dec. 22, 2016. Sproles only played three games last season before he tore a knee ligament and broke his forearm on the same play. He was sidelined since Week 1 this year because of a hamstring injury."I'm really happy for him," center Jason Kelce said. "I don't usually know who is back there but when I saw it was him and he got in the end zone, I had a big sense of joy. He's a phenomenal guy."RECORD SETTERZach Ertz broke Brian Westbrook's franchise record for receptions in a season. Ertz has 93 catches and is closing in on Jason Witten's single-season record (110) for tight ends. Westbrook had 90 catches in 2007."That's awesome, but I'm sure he's just happy we won," Wentz said.INJURIESRedskins: LG Jonathan Cooper (arm) Irving Fryar Jerseys Stitched , RB Tony Bergstrom (ankle), CB Fabian Moreau (knee) and LB Ryan Anderson (hamstring) left the game.Eagles: DT Tim Jernigan (back spasms) left in the first quarter and LT Jason Peters came out on the final series with an undisclosed injury.UP NEXTRedskins: Host the New York Giants (4-8) on Sunday.Eagles: Visit the Dallas Cowboys (7-5) on Sunday. It’s been a bad year for the Falcons. The best thing that happened to the 1-6 franchise arrived earlier today, when Atlanta finagled a second-round pick for receiver Mohamed Sanu.With Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley the top two options in the passing game both now and in the future, Sanu became expendable. To unload him for a second-round pick (even a very low one, which it surely will be) is a coup for the organization.It’s unclear whether other teams were chasing Sanu. He signed with the Falcons when Kyle Shanahan served as offensive coordinator, and it’s long been believed that the third-year 49ers coach would like to get Sanu to San Francisco. Regardless, the Falcons got a second-round pick, dumped the balanace of Sanu’s $6 million salary, and avoided his $6.5 million pay for 2020, the last year of his deal.Sanu’s highest output from a yardage standpoint came in 2018 Infant Yodny Cajuste Jersey , with 838. He was on pace for 715 in 2019. In his last game with the Falcons, Sanu caught one pass for three yards.With one week to go until the trade window closes, Sanu may be far from the last player to get a one-way ticket out of Atlanta. Given the Falcons’ current struggles, plenty of others may be hoping that they end up with a contending team, too.

This Year, I Am Thankful for… the Women of Supermarionation

With Thanksgiving fast approaching, we often find ourselves becoming more introspective, reflecting on the people and things for which we are thankful. As we at Fanbase Press celebrate fandoms, this year, the Fanbase Press staff and contributors have chosen to honor their favorite fandoms, characters, or other elements of geekdom for which they are thankful, and how those areas of geekiness have shaped their lives and values.

In the UK throughout the 1960s, Gerry and Sylvia Anderson produced a series of science fiction TV shows aimed at younger viewers using puppets, specifically marionettes—Stingray, Thunderbirds, and Captain Scarlet to name a few—and although the marionettes’ strings were evident and facial expression was limited in the beginning, after further development the strings grew thinner and stronger, and lip movements became electronically synchronized with pre-recorded dialogue, hence Gerry Anderson’s trademarked Supermarionation.
 
This was hard "sci-fi" for kids. Flying cars, spaceships, space travel, aliens, piranha fish submersibles, rockets, tunnel borers, futuristic (at the time) espionage and global terrorism, future-tech gone disastrously awry, and villains that the James Bond franchise would be proud of. Some of the later shows grew very dark and morally ambiguous, too: Captain Scarlet, for example, crossing swords with the Mysterons, against whom we’d fired the first shot.
 
And while the 1960s were evolving into a place where women couldn’t do this or that—too weak, too distracting—these shows offered a different view, where men and women were working together (Imagine that!) on a variety of tasks, on land, in the air, and in space.
 
First and foremost, Sylvia Anderson deserves a major hat-tip. Co-creator, co-writer, co-producer, and responsible for character development and costumes within the shows, she also provided the voices for Thunderbirds’ Lady Penelope and Fireball XL5’s Doctor Venus. And although critics argue that most of the initial female characters are stereotypically white, blond, and big-eyed, by the time we arrive at Captain Scarlet, its all-women team of fighter pilots is multi-national and could easily pass the Bechdel Test.

In Fireball XL5, Doctor Venus has five years of space adventure under her belt and is a doctor of space medicine. A full member of the ship’s crew, she is frequently in the midst of the action on behalf of the World Space Patrol, occasionally with stethoscope in hand, helping to save the day.
 
In Stingray, and despite their romantic inclinations being focused on the same guy (Troy Tempest, naturally), Lieutenant Atlanta Shore and Pacifican mermaid Marina still maintain a firm friendship, and as members of the World Aquanaut Security Patrol (WASP), keep the oceans safe from Titan and his fleet of Terror Fish. At the beginning of every show, we’re told, “Anything can happen in the next half hour!” It can, and does, and the women are always in the thick of it.
 


 
Thunderbirds is perhaps the most famous of the Supermarionation shows and possesses its very own Scarlet Pimpernel in the form of Lady Penelope Creighton-Ward, International Rescue’s London agent. Poised and unflappable, she (and her safe-cracking butler, Parker) thwarts many a villain throughout the series, invariably getting her hands dirty while hiding behind an aristocratic and socialite façade.
 


 
Finally, in Captain Scarlet's “war of nerves” against the Mysterons, Spectrum’s Cloudbase is defended by a multi-national squadron of women fighter pilots—code names Melody, Destiny, Harmony, Symphony, and Rhapsody Angel. This is a much darker show, but instead of remaining in the background while their male counterparts are shot, blown up, and buried, over and over, the women are on the front lines, similarly under threat.
 


 
Like a lot of older shows, they’re probably dated by now and will certainly have their flaws, but they undoubtedly inspired this little girl back in the day, by offering me a world of can-do, rather than can’t. During this Thanksgiving, I shall raise a glass: To the women of Supermarionation!

Tom Hanks portrays Mr. Rogers, Franklin Graham: Trump made America great again, 40 Hong Kong Christians threatened by phone

 Cache   

It’s Monday, November 25th, A.D. 2019. This is The Worldview in 5 Minutes heard at www.TheWorldview.com. I’m Adam McManus.

40 Hong Kong Christians threatened in eerie phone messages

More than 40 Hong Kong Christians who have been vocal in the ongoing protests have received threatening messages to their WhatsApp accounts, reports International Christian Concern.

According to the Hong Kong Christian Times, dozens of Christians from different churches and groups have seen intimidating messages from unknown sources in their cell phones, demanding that they stop voicing their opinion.

These messages came from a few callers, mostly pay-as-you-go SIM card users. They seem to have lots of personal information about the targeted individuals, and used derogatory comments and profanity against these Christians, with threats such as “if you don’t stop voicing your opinion, all the members of your family will die.”

Trump on Fox & Friends: “I want a trial!”

In a lengthy interview with Fox & Friends on Friday morning, the first since the impeachment inquiry hearings appear to have wrapped up, President Donald Trump proclaimed, “I want a trial,” in the matter of his alleged plot to seek domestic political help from Ukraine, reports Fox News.

Fox and Friends co-host Brian Kilmead seemed surprised.

KILMEADE: "You want a trial?”

Franklin Graham:  Trump has made America great again

Rev. Franklin Graham appeared on “The Eric Metaxas Show” last Thursday, reports The Daily Caller.

After urging listeners to consider sending a shoebox filled with toys and school supplies in the name of Christ to third world kids through Operation Christmas Child and Samaritan’s Purse, the son of the late evangelist Billy Graham spoke of one reason why he supports President Trump’s re-election.

GRAHAM: “If you look at what the President has done just just for our country, regardless of whether you're Republican or Democrat, the unemployment is at the lowest in 70 years.  More African-Americans are working, more Latinos are working, more Asians are working, more everybody is working. We have an economy that is just screaming forward.

“Here's what that does for churches are Christians. That means more people working, so there's more people tithing and giving to the churches. There's more money for missions.

The outrage by respected Christian leaders over Chick-fil-A’s decision to cave to the homosexual activists continues to grow by the day.

The list, among others, includes John Stonestreet, president of the Colson Center for Christian Worldview, Dr. Albert Mohler, president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Tony Perkins, President of the Family Research Council, and Christian talk show hosts Michael Brown and Eric Metaxas.

According to the Christian Post, Mat Staver, the Chairman of Liberty Counsel, noted that Chick-fil-A’s President and Chief Operating Officer, Tim Tassopoulos, continues to serve as an advisor to the Atlanta Boy Scouts.

This alone should raise a red flag considering the Boy Scouts also capitulated to the LGBT agenda.

Mr. Tassopoulos stated: “There’s no question we know that, as we go into new markets, we need to be clear about who we are.”

In 2014, Chick-fil-A decided to stop funding the Paul Anderson Youth Home because it was accused of being “anti-LGBT.” Now Chick-fil-A also stopped funding the Salvation Army and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, both of which are also falsely accused of being “anti-LGBT” because they have biblical policies on marriage and sexuality.

Tassopoulos states that Chick-fil-A will now fund Covenant House International, which is much smaller than the Salvation Army (in only 31 cities) and an LGBTQ activist itself.

Staver documents that the founder of Covenant House, a Catholic priest pedophile, was sued for allegedly sexually abusing the youth who were seeking shelter and food there. Covenant House proudly promotes LGBTQ on its website, is recognized as a national funder of LGBTQ causes, and supports the New York City Gay Pride parade with its own float, banners, and t-shirts.

Plus, Covenant House does not stop at LGBTQ activism; it also takes girls to abortion mills.  Think about that the next time you’re tempted to eat at Chick-fil-A.

Romans 12: 2 declares, “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—His good, pleasing and perfect will.”

Sign the AFA petition urging Chick-Fil-A to reverse course.

Tom Hanks portrays Mr. Rogers in new film

And finally, in this era of partisan divisions, Joanne Rogers often laments how much this generation of children could use the kindness radiated by her late husband Fred Rogers who hosted “Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood” on Public Broadcasting Television, reports NBC News.

Tom Hanks portrays the beloved Presbyterian pastor in the red sweater in a new film called "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood."

NBC’s Savannah Guthrie talked with Hanks on the Today show who emphasized how Mr. Rogers was focused like a laser beam on the children in the audience, making them feel more comfortable sharing their emotions.

HANKS: “It's not for us. It's not for grown-ups who know how the world works. It's not for grown-ups here awaiting to be flummoxed or dazzled. It's for children who are looking to be invested in by somebody who cares about them.  That comes up as nefarious to some people, right? What's the diabolical scheme that he is actually pulling on over us in order to make us feel better about ourselves? And there was none.”

Guthrie explained why she thought Mr. Rogers had such appeal.

GUTHRIE: “What I think is so interesting about Mr. Rogers is that he was ultimately vulnerable by being so kind. He really put himself on the line to be so kind. The opposite of cynicism is vulnerability.”

Jesus said, “By this everyone will know that you are My disciples, if you love one another." (John 13:35)

How Americans perceive Evangelicals

Thirty percent of adults in the United States have a “positive” perception of evangelicals as Americans increasingly view the religious demographic through a political lens, newly released Barna Group research indicates, reports the Christian Post.

When broken down by political leanings, 49 percent of respondents who said they are “mostly conservative” said they have at least a somewhat positive perception of evangelicals, while 52 percent of respondents who are “mostly liberal” said they have at least a somewhat negative perception of evangelicals.

When asked for the reasons why they hold a positive perception of evangelicals, 61 percent of the 322 respondents who said they have positive opinions of evangelicals said it is because “they are committed to their beliefs.” Meanwhile, 51 percent said “they are loving” and 49 percent said “they are honest.”

Sixty-seven percent of the 268 respondents who held negative perceptions of evangelicals said they do so because “they are too pushy with their beliefs,” while 61 percent said, “they are hypocritical.” Fifty-one percent said “their beliefs are outdated” and 50 percent said “they are homophobic.”

325 cases of European discrimination against Christians

The Observatory on Intolerance and Discrimination Against Christians in Europe released their 2019 report this month, documenting 325 cases of intolerance and discrimination against Christians in Europe last year.

Forms of persecution included negative stereotyping in the media, legal action against Christian businesses, and Christian parents being harassed for trying to raise their children according to their faith. But the cases also included violence, aggression, and arrests involving Christians and vandalism of Christian sites.

1 Peter 4:12-13 says, “Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ's sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.”

Pastor U Maung Maung released in Myanmar

Praise God! Pastor U Maung Maung, who was kidnapped on October 26 by the Arakan Army in Rakhine State, Myanmar, was released on November 5.

Pastor U Maung Maung, from the predominately Christian Chin ethnic group, was traveling with his wife and infant before being separated from them and abducted with 57 others by the Arakan Army.

The army has threatened him if he shares what he experienced during the abduction with the Myanmar government.

On November 3, the Arakan Army also kidnapped a Chin Christian parliamentarian, U Hawi Tin, who is still missing.

President Trump flips Second Circuit Court of Appeals

In more good news, last week the U.S. Senate voted to confirm President Trump’s nominee, former White House attorney Steven Menashi, to the New York-based Second Circuit Court of Appeals, flipping the court to a majority of Republican-appointed judges.

And this week, the Senate confirmed Florida Supreme Court Justices Robert Luck and Barbara Lagoa to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals.

Now the Sixth, Seventh, and Eighth Circuit Courts have more Trump appointees on the bench than judges appointed by Democrats, reports Courthouse News.

CA Supreme Court vs. Catholic group over tax-funded abortions

On Wednesday, California’s Supreme Court rejected a Catholic organization’s challenge to state regulations that designate the murder of unborn babies as “medically necessary.”

Missionary Guadalupanas of the Holy Spirit has been fighting the 2014 regulations that would force it to cover abortions in its members’ health insurance plans.

Isaiah 5:20 says, “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil.”

GOP Congressman: “These proceedings have been anything but fair”

U.S. lawmakers are wrapping up a week of impeachment hearings over President Trump’s dealings with Ukraine.

The Democratic House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff said Democrats would decide in the coming days on next steps in the inquiry after hearing from a dozen witnesses.

Yesterday, Republican Congressman Chris Stewart of Utah, who serves on the House Intelligence Committee, said this during the impeachment inquiry.

STEWART: "The American people expect a lot in politics. They understand the tussle, the fight, the debate.  But they also expect basic fairness. And these proceedings have been anything but fair. The Senate has an opportunity to fix that. I am confident they will. And I look forward to them completing the job that we could have done here."

Democratic presidential candidates affirm abortion -- again

During Wednesday night’s MSNBC Democratic presidential debate in Atlanta, Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren, and Bernie Sanders expressed their support for the impeachment inquiry

Additionally, Rachel Maddow asked this question of Senator Warren.

MADDOW: “Louisiana re-elected Democratic Governor John Bel Edwards. He has signed one of the country's toughest laws restricting abortion. Is there room in the Democratic Party for someone like him, someone who can win in a deep red state, but who does not support abortion rights? Senator Warren.”

WARREN: “I believe that abortion rights are human rights. I believe that they are also economic rights and protecting the rights of a woman to be able to make decisions about her own body is fundamentally what we do and what we stand for as a Democratic Party.”

Pew study: Most people think churches should not engage politically

A Pew Research survey found a majority of Americans believe churches and religious organizations do more good than harm and strengthen morality in society.

However, nearly 80 percent of Americans think religion is losing influence in America, and half of those say this is a bad thing.

But sadly, most Americans believe churches should not engage in public matters like politics and supporting candidates. Thirty percent even said religious organizations have too much influence on politics while 28 percent said churches don’t have enough influence.

Jesus tells the church in Matthew 28:19-20 to “make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you.”

17-year-old girl saves elderly man with dementia in freezing temps

And finally, 17-year-old Katie Qualls of Madison, Mississippi saved the life of an elderly man with dementia recently after she learned he had gone missing based from a friend’s Facebook post, reports WLBT.

Madison told her parents she couldn’t sleep until they found the gentleman, prompting her to join the search party in freezing temperatures.

QUALLS:  “I immediately went to my parents and said, ‘I’m not going to be able to go to sleep until that this person is found, just like, thinking about if that was my grandfather or somebody just didn’t sit right with me.”

She followed a different path than the rest, finding the man on the ground among some bushes.

QUALLS: “I hear something and I turn to my left. And he’s like back up in the bushes and he blended in with the mulch. Let me tell you, I don’t know how I picked him up, but I picked his whole body up and carried him out. He was shaking really bad.”

Madison explained to the TV cameras why she believed she was the one to find the man with dementia.

QUALLS: “I realize it was just all God and how He led me there. I don’t know. It’s crazy, but He works in mysterious ways and He’s amazing. I know that for sure.”

Madison said, “I truly believe He made that happen for a reason. With all the stuff that’s happened in my life recently, I feel like He has a plan for me and I don’t know what it is, but I know it’s going to be helping people.”

Jeremiah 29:11 says, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

AIDS Memorial Quilt Goes Home to San Francisco

 Cache   

See this story at GayCityNews.com.

BY MATT TRACY

Community News Group

More than three decades after it was created in San Francisco, the world famous AIDS Memorial Quilt is returning home for good.

The quilt will be moved from Atlanta to the National AIDS Memorial in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park for long-term preservation and educational purposes, while related archival collections will be under the care of the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress in Washington.

The NAMES Project Foundation, which oversaw the development of the quilt, and a slate of elected officials, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Congressmembers John Lewis of Georgia and Barbara Lee of California, announced the planned move on November 20.

The idea for the quilt stemmed from a candlelight vigil and march in 1985 that was originally intended to remember the assassinations seven years earlier of out gay San Francisco City Supervisor Harvey Milk and Mayor George Moscone. Cleve Jones, who was close with Milk, asked individuals at that event to write the names of people who had died of AIDS and post the names on a wall. Jones then realized that the names looked similar to a quilt.

Roughly two years passed before Jones and his friend, Joseph Durant, acted on the idea and created individual quilts for 40 friends who had succumbed to AIDS. They then sewed quilts together and it grew in size as more folks learned about it and contributed to it. The quilt was beneficial in multiple ways because it not only served as a memorial for lost loved ones, but also generated media attention on the epidemic’s rapid spread.

The quilt has been displayed at the National Mall on multiple occasions, the first time in 1987 during the National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights. At that time, it filled a space larger than a football field and included 1,920 panels. Its display on the Mall — in 1988, 1989, 1992, and 1996, as well — were the only times it was displayed in its entirety. In 1996, it filled the entire National Mall.

According to the NAMES Project Foundation’s most recent information, the quilt currently has 49,000 panels that are arrayed on 5,956 blocks measuring 12 feet by 12 feet. It is the world’s largest community art project.

The press release accompanying the November 20 announcement stated that since 1981 636,000 Americans have died from AIDS, with more than 1.1 million currently living with HIV.

Jones, who was fired as executive director of the NAMES Project in 2004 over an apparent disagreement regarding the way the quilt should be displayed, was on hand for the November 20 announcement at the Library of Congress. He delivered a heartfelt speech during which he recalled the quilt’s origins and discussed the way in which the artwork grew over the years.

“I could not be happier and more grateful for this outcome,” Jones said. “There is no scenario I can imagine other than this never having to have happened that would bring me greater sense of peace to know that this extraordinary work of art is going to be preserved.”

Pelosi, whose Congressional district encompasses the city of San Francisco, delivered remarks at the event and remembered a time in 1987 when Jones visited her home to discuss his idea of creating the quilt. Despite having raised five children and knowing how to knit, she explained, she did not know how to sew and assumed that many others also did not.

“I say to Cleve, ‘Cleve, a quilt? Nobody sews,’” Pelosi recalled. ‘I said, ‘Cleve, I just don’t know about this project. Can’t we do something else? Like, I don’t know what.’ And he said, ‘No, this is it. We’re sticking with this.’ And, of course, look at this.”

The quilt will be on display at the National AIDS Memorial beginning in early 2020 and is slated to be a key component of a forthcoming Center for Social Conscience that will be built by the National AIDS Memorial in the years to come.

‘Star Wars’ Actor Billy Dee Williams On Being Gender Fluid – ‘I See Myself As Feminine As Well As Masculine’

 Cache

Star Wars actor Billy Dee Williams is opening up about his sexuality. More inside...

Actor Billy Dee Williams – who’s best known for his role as Lando Calrissian in the Star Wars franchise – sat down with Esquire to talk about his legacy and he dropped deets about his sexuality, revealing he's gender fluid.

“I never tried to be anything except myself. I think of myself as a relatively colorful character who doesn’t take himself or herself too seriously,” the 82-year-old actor told the publication.

Billy Dee Williams reprised his role as Lando in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, which hit theaters December 20, 2019.

“And you see I say ‘himself’ and ‘herself,’ because I also see myself as feminine as well as masculine. I’m a very soft person. I’m not afraid to show that side of myself,” he continued.

You can read his full interview here.

"Atlanta" creator/star Donald Glover plays a young Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story. Writer Jonathan Kasdan confirmed the character is pansexual.

The Huffington Post reported:

So, given the opportunity to speak with father-and-son “Solo” co-writers Lawrence and Jonathan Kasdan, I asked them about Lando’s possible sexual fluidity. Is he pansexual?

“I would say yes,” Jonathan Kasdan emphatically said.

“There’s a fluidity to Donald and Billy Dee’s [portrayal of Lando’s] sexuality,” Kasdan continued. “I mean, I would have loved to have gotten a more explicitly LGBT character into this movie. I think it’s time, certainly, for that, and I love the fluidity ― sort of the spectrum of sexuality that Donald appeals to and that droids are a part of.”

“He doesn’t make any hard and fast rules. I think it’s fun,” Kasdan said. “I don’t know where it will go.”

There you have it. Folks living their life with no worries. Love it.

Serial Scammer Who Swindled $80K From Women He Met On Dating Apps Sentenced To Prison

 Cache   

 photo scammermugshot.png

A man who scammed thousands of dollars out of women using dating apps has been sentenced to prison. Find out how much time the serial scammer received inside…

A serial scammer who swindled thousands of dollars out of women via dating apps has learned his fate.

34-year-old John Hill reportedly pleaded guilty to one count of theft by taking and one count of perjury, and has been sentenced to seven years in prison and 13-months probation, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

You’ll recall, Hill was arrested in May after being accused of scamming an Alpharetta woman he met on Match.com out of more than $80,000.

Hill was able to swindle the money out of the Alpharetta woman after convincing her he was a millionaire and within a week of meeting on the dating site, they agreed to get married. The money he asked her for was intended to go toward the purchase of their first home and for furniture. Once she sent him the funds, POOF! He disappeared.

“The woman said she is in a relationship with the suspect. However, she didn’t know what his profession was,” Gwinnett Cpl. Michele Pihera told WSB. “Also, she said he was only home on weekends. During the week, she didn’t know where he went.”

The woman had no idea Hill was already living in an apartment in Duluth with another woman and a child. Investigators revealed Hill had changed his name more than five times in the past three years and allegedly committed similar crimes in Virginia, Delaware, Maryland and New Jersey. At the time, it’s unclear if he still faces charges in those states.

Hill has also been ordered to pay the Alpharetta woman $83,500 in restitution and sign over a white BMW that he allegedly purchased with the money he took from her. The judge also prohibited him from ever creating an online dating profile again.

Serves him right. Got to be careful out here ladies.

Do you think his prison sentence was harsh enough?
