I've been bouncing back and forth between Romancing SaGa 3 and Mafia III. SaGa is ridiculously tough, but entertaining. Mafia III has absolutely wonderful setting, and I love everything about that. Unfortunately, it is still a reminder as to why I generally don't like sandbox games like this and GTA. The mission structure just gets painfully boring after a couple hours. Shame too, because I really love the backdrop of New Orleans during the Civil Rights era.

In order to select a specific record collection on FamilySearch, go to  https://familysearch.org/search/collection/list and use the "Filter by collection name" feature in the upper left-hand corner and use keywords (e.g. "church england") to find collections with those keywords.

My friend, Marshall, has come up with a program to determine which collections are ADDED, DELETED or UPDATED.  Thanks to Marshall for helping me out here!
Each one of the collections listed above has a Research Wiki page (use the "Learn more" link).  It would be very useful if the Wiki page for each collection listed the dates for when the collection was added as a new collection and the dates for major updates also.

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

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)

NBA Buy or Sell: Are starts by Blazers, Spurs, Lakers, Luka Doncic for real?

Yardbarker NBA writers Pat Heery and Sean Keane address the hottest issues in the NBA. This week's topic: Buy or sell on early trends.  Heery: When the season began, I had Wednesday, Nov. 27 circled as one of the best days of basketball this season. Not only will 28 of 30 teams play, but the schedule-makers decided that Thanksgiving Eve would be when the Nets' Kyrie Irving plays in Boston and Lakers' Anthony Davis plays in New Orleans. I was prepared for anything -- NSFW chants from the crowd in Boston, The Brow voodoo dolls, etc. Sadly, because Irving has a shoulder injury and the Zion-less Pelicans (6-11) are floundering, neither of these games has the intrigue we initially expected. Therefore, instead of previewing a double homecoming this week, we're going to take a more omniscient view of the league and do a little "Buy or Sell." So ...  1) Buy or sell the Spurs (6-11) and Blazers (6-12) missing the playoffs. 2) Buy or sell the Wizards (5-9) finishing the season with a top-five offense (currently second

Yet like earlier transplants John Latrobe and Lafcadio Hearn, he was able to perceive and describe something remarkable that natives mostly overlooked. “Sitting in a Decatur Street Italian restaurant,” opened Branan, “and gazing [in] open-mo...

Bill Kirchen reminiscences on Commander Cody, Iggy Pop, and Bob Dylan before the Ann Arbor guitar legend's Honky Tonk Holiday

Excerpt from Bill Kirchen's Holiday Honk Tonk 2019 poster

Ann Arbor native Bill Kirchen is instrumental in creating the rootsy country-rock-blues-folk mix we today call Americana. 

Kirchen hit it big early in his career as the lead guitarist for Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen; he’s responsible for the dazzling guitar work on their enduring 1972 hit “Hot Rod Lincoln.” He’s since become known as an absolute master of the Telecaster guitar, playing with a nearly endless list of impressive names through the years. 

Most recently, though, Kirchen has found one more way to shine: He’s become well known for his Honky Tonk Holiday tours, which showcase some of the most amazing, overlooked Christmas-themed gems you’ve never heard, alongside some other favorites from throughout his storied career.

On Sunday, Dec. 1, Kirchen brings his annual holiday spectacular home to Ann Arbor for a show at The Ark.

Dusting off should-be-classics like “Daddy’s Drinkin’ Up Our Christmas,” “Silent Surfin’ Night,” and “Truckin’ Trees For Christmas,” Kirchen -- now based in Austin -- will appear with his backing band The Hounds of the Bakersfield, featuring Rick Richards on drums and David Carroll on stand-up bass. 

Kirchen took the time to answer a few questions via email, reflecting on the upcoming show and his time in Ann Arbor.

Bill Kirchen in 1954, Ann Arbor News

Caption from the Ann Arbor News, May 14, 1954: "Nature makes mistakes sometimes, and five-year-old Billy Kirchen of 1507 Abbott Ave. is holding one of them. Three dandelions fused into a single stem and then grew a triple flower head." Donated by the Ann Arbor News. © The Ann Arbor News.

Q: You’re based in Austin, Texas, now?
A: Yep. Chased the grandkids, daughter, and son-in-law down here almost 10 years ago. I’ve been coming down here to play music the better part of 50 years, so I have a lot of friends and history here. It’s still a soulful town. We’re struggling with explosive growth, but that comes with the territory. It’s a magnet town for pickers and writers, with no actual music industry! I like the community here, but need to make a lot of my livelihood on the road.

Q: How long have you been playing with the Hounds of the Bakersfield?
A: Since I moved to Austin, though we rotate the band name. I’ve known bass player David Carroll much longer, at least 20 years. Drummer Rick Richards I met when I got here.

Q: How often do you get back to Ann Arbor? Do you still have any family here?
A: At least once a year. Still have a sister Betsy and a brother Harold and sister-in-law Pam in Ann Arbor.

Q: Do you have any particular favorite memories of your days in Ann Arbor? Any favorite hangouts or events that you still think of fondly? 
A: Heck yeah. A great place to “grow up,” and I use the term loosely. Favorites? The Ark. The Cinema Guild, for old B&W movies as a kid; then, later, George Manupelli’s Film Festivals. The MUG in the Union and Dominick’s were where I’d find the bohemian crowd in the mid-'60s. While a senior at Ann Arbor High, I created a work/study program that allowed me to leave for the day at lunch, head up to campus, and just hang out. Sweet. It turned out to be actually very enriching, not to mention way more fun than school at that point.

There was a tremendous folk music scene here. Herb David’s Guitar Shop saw it all come and go. He fixed up a banjo for me that my mom got during a 1930s banjo craze. I saw Clarence and Roland White and the Kentucky Colonels at the Golden Vanity downtown, Junior Wells and Buddy Guy, then the Kweskin Jug Band at the Canterbury House, and much more. Odetta, Bill Monroe, Dave Van Ronk, Pete Seeger, Mike Bloomfield, Brownie McGee, all at various places on campus. I watched Bob Dylan, solo ’64, at my high school from up in the light deck right above the stage.  

Bill Kirchen in 1962, Ann Arbor News

Caption from the Ann Arbor News, Sept. 3, 1962: "Bill Kirchen, 14-year-old of Mr. and Mrs. Calvin J. Kirchen of 1507 Abbott Ave., is shown on his extended, high-seat bicycle he and a neighbor friend, John Gostic, created as an interesting diversion on a summer day. Bill is riding high this last week of summer vacation. He is an Ann Arbor High School 10th grader." Donated by the Ann Arbor News. © The Ann Arbor News.

Q: What was it like to be part of the Ann Arbor music scene back in those days?
A: Ann Arbor was a crossroads for musicians, artists, fellow travelers, and advanced thinkers, many of whom I’m still friends with today. For every name artist I mention, there were a dozen locals and visitors who had a very big impact on me.

When I started, I met a lot of musicians at the U of M Folklore Society meetings. Three of them were, among other things, country-blues players. They had an apartment with motorcycles in pieces in the kitchen, a living room crammed with guitars, cool blues records, and a harpsichord one of ’em built. I was just a kid, a junior in high school, but they’d let me come over, play records, and show me how to fingerpick guitar.

I loved Mississippi John Hurt, who I heard there. They said why don’t you go to the Newport Folk Festival and see him? So summer of ’64, barely 16, I hitchhiked to the festival, saw John Hurt, The Staple Singers, Bob Dylan, Jim Kweskin, Lightnin’ Hopkins, Skip James, Son House, The Swan Silvertones, Jimmie Driftwood, Doc Watson, Johnny Cash, Judy Collins, the list goes on and on. That festival, and the one next year, pretty well blew away the competition for what I was going to do before I, or if, or when, I grew up. 

In ’64 this guy drives up and parks right on the sidewalk of the Union in his Peugeot car, which actually still had a crank you needed to stick in the front to start it, if your starter motor was broken, like his. I visited him at the Tassajara Zen Center in Big Sur, and still see him today in Vancouver where he teaches ocean sailing and celestial navigation. Another guy came through town who had played with Bill Monroe, and I sat in with him and sang a song. He sold me a Martin D-18 guitar and taught me how to hop freight trains.

In 1966, two buddies and I hopped those freights back from SF to Ann Arbor, where we started my first electric band, The Seventh Seal. Psychedelic folk-rock. We rented the bandshell in West Park for $15 a pop and put on the town’s first outdoor rock shows one summer, every Sunday afternoon. ["Local Group Denies Playing Riot-Causing Music," Ann Arbor News, July 19, 1967]

Two noted musicians from the U of M rock ’n’ roll scene saw the Seal on stage at the Cinema Guild, playing along with some Warhol movie while Gerard Malanga danced around the stage in chains. They invited me to play with them, and that became Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen. We played Mark’s Coffeehouse basement, Mr. Flood’s Party, The Blind Pig, the Canterbury House, Hill Auditorium, frat parties, the Cinema Guild, the Ozone Homecoming Parade, and doubtless many more that have slipped through the cracks. 

The Seventh Seal playing the West Park band shell in 1967

Caption from the Ann Arbor News, July 19, 1967: "Sunday Concert in West Park: Ron Miller of 1023 Church (right foreground) plays the electric bass guitar at one of The Seventh Seal's Sunday concerts in West Park band shell. Bill Kirchen sings into the microphone just behind Miller. Steve Elliott plays the drums at left. Dan Chesluk is playing the electric organ at center. The concerts are well attended, with hundreds of persons showing up last Sunday. Many city residents have joined the crowds -- some to satisfy their curiousity." Donated by the Ann Arbor News. © The Ann Arbor News.

At the ’65 high school senior talent show I put together a jug band, The Who Knows Pickers. We had learned “Subterranean Homesick Blues,” already out and on the air, a rock ’n’ roll record by Dylan. I electrified my guitar, but the director wasn’t having it. He’d gotten hay bales for us, and that was that. I went back to Newport that summer of ’65 and saw Dylan go electric with Bloomfield. I heard no boos. My take is that people in the audience overwhelmingly loved it. Booing as an audience team sport began later. 

The Iguanas were also on that high school talent show. Jim Osterberg (Iggy Pop) sang “Jolly Green Giant” from atop a tall riser while drumming. About a year later I caught the tail end of the first Stooges (then the Psychedelic Stooges) performance at their manager’s house, right up the street from me. Iggy had spray-painted his face gold and was sitting on the floor shoving a mic in and out of a vacuum cleaner. A little later, when he got the band up and running, they were undeniable. We did a couple great shows with them in the late ‘60s. 

One more Ig-related influence: Danny and Michael Erlewine’s The Prime Movers, with Iggy on drums, were fantastic. Blues, New Orleans, heavy roots stuff. Danny was my first electric guitar hero. Two songs, in particular, stuck with me. Their keyboard player, Robert Sheff, worked at Discount Records, and when asked he found me the album Home of the Blues with “Ooh Poo Pah Doo,” by Jessie Hill, plus a Swan Silvertones album with “Seek Seek and Ye Shall Find.” Quite possibly the best two albums I’ve ever owned. Sheff, now Blue Gene Tyranny, is a longtime avant-garde composer living in NYC. The Once Group, a free-wheeling Ann Arbor music and art collective, had lured him up to town from his native Texas.

Q: Your “Honky Tonk Holiday” shows are known for showcasing little-known but fantastic gems of holiday music. How do you find these songs? Have you specifically sought them out, or just stumbled across them over the years?
A: They find me! There are a lot of vernacular music genres where holiday songs of questionable taste are not a problem.

Q: What makes for a good holiday song? What are a couple more traditional holiday songs that you love?
A: I love all the traditional carols, probably know at least a dozen, but only the first stanza or so. Someday I’d like to go caroling again, where you go around in the evening and stand under people’s windows and serenade them. Pro tip: This Christmas, buy a bunch of kazoos, enough for all the family and guests; then get everybody on ’em and buzz through the carols. You will thank me.

Q: As one of the founders of the Americana movement, how would you assess the overall health of the genre today? Any particular favorite artists you think deserve a wider audience?
A: I think that’s a young man’s job. I like a lot of what I’ve heard and am certainly not worried about the future of Americana, or pop, or acid death metal. Technology will change and the genres will morph and sort themselves out. I enjoy it when friends recommend great new stuff, or my pals put out cool new stuff, or I discover tunes online. But I don’t seek it out or really keep track.

I already have way more music under my roof than I’ll get a chance to hear in this lifetime. Now you kids get off my lawn.

Jami Attenberg, "ALL THIS COULD BE YOURS" w/ Alissa Nutting

 Cache   

From critically acclaimed New York Times best-selling author Jami Attenberg comes a novel of family secrets: think the drama of Big Little Lies set in the heat of a New Orleans summer

"If I know why they are the way they are, then maybe I can learn why I am the way I am," says Alex Tuchman of her parents. Now that her father is on his deathbed, Alex--a strong-headed lawyer, devoted mother, and loving sister--feels she can finally unearth the secrets of who Victor is and what he did over the course of his life and career. (A power-hungry real estate developer, he is, by all accounts, a bad man.) She travels to New Orleans to be with her family, but mostly to interrogate her tightlipped mother, Barbra.

As Barbra fends off Alex's unrelenting questions, she reflects on her tumultuous life with Victor. Meanwhile Gary, Alex's brother, is incommunicado, trying to get his movie career off the ground in Los Angeles. And Gary's wife, Twyla, is having a nervous breakdown, buying up all the lipstick in drug stores around New Orleans and bursting into crying fits. Dysfunction is at its peak. As each family member grapples with Victor's history, they must figure out a way to move forward--with one another, for themselves, and for the sake of their children.

All This Could Be Yours is a timely, piercing exploration of what it means to be caught in the web of a toxic man who abused his power; it shows how those webs can tangle a family for generations and what it takes to--maybe, hopefully--break free.

Attenberg is in conversation with Alissa Nutting, assistant professor of English at Grinnell College.

Louis C.K. Tells Israeli Audience He’d ‘Rather Be In Auschwitz Than New York City’

 Cache   

Disgraced comedian Louis C.K. inserted his foot in his mouth again, telling an audience in Israel that he’d prefer to be in the concentration camp where millions of Jewish people were massacred than be in New York City.

“I’d rather be in Auschwitz than New York City,” C.K. said during a Thanksgiving night performance in Holon, a city south of Tel Aviv, according to multiple reports.

“I mean now, not when it was open,” he added.

Auschwitz was a concentration camp built and operated by Nazi Germany where 1.1 million men, women and children were exterminated during World War II, including 865,000 Jews who were gassed on arrival. Many who were not gassed died of starvation, beatings and disease.

Although many on social media got a belly laugh out of the joke – one Twitter user said they bought tickets to his show because of it – and the Daily News reported that “the audience burst into applause” for the comedian, others on Twitter went berserk:

C.K., who is of Jewish descent, is in the middle of an international comedy tour that includes sold-out shows in Slovakia, along with performances in Hungary and a series of U.S. shows in Detroit, Akron, Reading, Mobile, New Orleans and Houston.

During his Holon set, C.K. also addressed his behavior as being wrong, according to the New York Daily News.

“If they say ‘yes,’ then still don’t do it, because it’s not popular,” he said in apparent reference to the growing #MeToo movement.

But this isn’t the first time C.K. has referenced masturbating in front of women during a comedy set. Earlier this year in a San Jose comedy club, C.K. told the audience, “I like to jerk off, and I don’t like being alone.”

Jazz this week: Jeremy Davenport, Steve Ross, Jeanette Harris & Althea René, and more

 Cache   
While this week's calendar of live jazz and creative music in St. Louis is slightly curtailed by the Thanksgiving holiday, there nevertheless are several noteworthy gigs happening, including the annual return of a noted local expat now living in New Orleans; a visit from one of NYC's most storied cabaret performers; and a tour stop by two "Queens of Soul Jazz." Let's go to the highlights...

Wednesday, November 27
This week's free "Wednesday Night Jazz Crawl" in Grand Center features multi-instrumentalist Jacob Alspach and friends at The Stage at KDHX, the jam session led by bassist Bob Deboo at the Kranzberg Arts Center, and trumpeter Brady Lewis and BLStet at The Dark Room.

Also on Wednesday, singer Joe Mancuso and guitarist Dave Black are back at Scarlett's Wine Bar; Miss Jubilee performs vintage swing, hot jazz and more at Schlafly Bottleworks; and trumpeter Jim Manley does his weekly gig at Sasha's Wine Bar.

Friday, November 29
Trumpeter, singer and U City native Jeremy Davenport (pictured, top left) returns to his hometown for the first of two nights of his annual post-Thanksgiving performances at Jazz St. Louis. Davenport, who leads the house band at the Ritz-Carlton in his adopted home in New Orleans, usually draws a sell-out crowd, so advance reservations are strongly advised.

Elsewhere around town, singer and pianist Steve Ross, nicknamed the "Crown Prince of Cabaret" and a noted interpreter of the music of Cole Porter, will perform songs by Porter and more for the first of two nights at Blue Strawberry.

Also on Friday, there are two shows by local acts promoting debut recordings, with Annie and the Fur Trappers playing traditional jazz at the Focal Point and singer and pianist Katarra Parson offering songs from her album Cocoa Voyage at The Dark Room.

Saturday, November 30
Saxophonist Jeanette Harris and flute player Althea René (pictured, bottom left) bring their "Queens of Soul Jazz" tour to the Sheldon Concert Hall.

The two teamed up earlier this year to release the singer "We Are One," but both have had successful solo careers leading up to the collaboration. For more about both women, and some live performance videos, check out this post from Saturday before last.

Also on Saturday, saxophonist Tim Cunningham is back at Troy's Listening Room; pianist Carolbeth True and Two Times True return to the Parkside Grille; and The Gaslight Squares are playing at the Frisco Barroom.

Sunday, December 1
Dizzy Atmosphere plays Gypsy jazz and vintage swing for brunch at The Dark Room; the Jazz Troubadours play their monthly show at Evangeline's; and pianist and singer Jesse Gannon leads a trio at The Judson House.

Monday, December 2
The Folk School of KDHX hosts their weekly Traditional Jazz Jam Session.

Tuesday, December 3
The Route 66 Jazz Orchestra plays their fourth annual "1/2 a Christmas Concert" at the Sheldon Concert Hall.

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.

the first thing you look for when shopping for a realistic dildo

animal dildo Spend thrift University of California campus Chancellors put University of California Berkeley into financial crisis. Just how widespread is the budget crisis at University of California Berkeley? University of California Chancellor Robert J Birgeneau's ($500,000 salary) eight year fiscal track record is dismal indeed. He would like to blame the politicians, since they stopped giving him every dollar he has asked for, and the state legislators do share some responsibility for the financial crisis. animal dildo

horse dildo On a basic level, "one size fits all/most" is true. I am a size 10/11 in jeans and had absolutely no trouble with these fitting around (what I shall affectionately refer to as) 'dat ass'. The ties make it easy to fit a wide range of sizes, but the material rationing from ass to crotch appears to be scarce, especially if you're a lady with a little more to love. horse dildo

vibrators So, my recommendation is, if the material that glows is non porous, I wouldn worry about it unless you are extremely sensitive, and by that I mean, pretty much anything causes you to break out or get yeast infections (most people don have this problem). If the material that glows is porous dildos, be a bit more cautious with insertion, but it still shouldn be a problem. Perhaps use a condom if it worries you.. vibrators

horse dildo She has been a tireless, outspoken advocate for sexual freedom and considers herself a sex positive feminist who seeks to "educate others from a place of practice and not just theory."Nina has been a visible industry spokesperson who seeks to change negative perceptions of adult entertainment and sex itself. In 1993, she and ten other adult film stars were arrested in Las Vegas for "having a lesbian performance in the front of an audience." She actively supports the Woodhull Foundations whose goal is to promotes sexual freedom as a fundamental human right. She challenges the radical feminist view that the porn industry, by definition dildos, victimizes women instead dildos, she points out that in her lengthy career, she seen few examples of coercion of performers on set, and none of a physical nature. horse dildo

wholesale dildos The bottom located right above the on/off button will rotate through the 7 different functions that are listed above. While the vibe is waterproof, the remote is not! The two push buttons illuminate blue when turned on. The ring fits very well and can be stretched for that perfect fit. wholesale dildos

g spot vibrator "Here's what these visiting 'educators' were telling those kids: Condoms fail. They fail so often, they are pointless. There is no birth control except condoms. Why do I have negative feelings about this stuff in the first place? We often been brought up to feel embarrassed about women bodies and some of their functions, from menstruation to vaginal or general body smell to our genital "cleanliness." We taught that basically all of our sexual functions should be hidden or removed to the best of our ability. We been conditioned to believe that when we actually have sex, we should be as clean, neat, pretty, and perfect as possible. There also been a lot of money to be made in making women feel they must buy products to mask menses or vaginal smells. g spot vibrator

horse dildo But yeah. Kids are where I can drop any decorum and play dildos, chasing them, coming up with foolishness. I guess it where I out of the younger awkward INTJ state and more comfortable. After getting past the smell of the product and decided to try it anyways I massaged the suggested pea sized amount onto my clit and found that I had enough to massage down the labia and external vaginal opening as well, I was pleased by this since it comes in such a small tube. I felt it beginning to warm up within the first minute or so and it tepidly went from warm to OMG that's starting to get hot! This was not the tingling sensation that the product claimed, I was actually starting to become alarmed at how hot it was until i laid a cool cloth against my burning skin for just a second and suddenly everywhere that had been burning turned fiercely cool and slightly tingly. Maybe this was what they originally planned? I don't know if this was how it is meant to work. horse dildo

horse dildo I was with my boyfriend for a year and a half. This was my first true relationship and the boy i lost my virginity to. I fell in love with him i would do anything at all for him. I planning on seeing a gyno soon for similar reasons, I just need to find a good one before I settle. My periods are very heavy, somewhat similar to yours. I don use tampons, but I have to wear these just for casual use and I changing that every hour. horse dildo

vibrators Ms. Narvez Varela went on to explore Mexican and American identities using Spanglish, the mixing of languages in the same sentences. In her poem "Real Mexican," she describes, in raw and troubling language, a Mexican American ex convict so confused about his Hispanic identity he doesn't know what name to call himself. vibrators

wholesale sex toys My grades dropped, I started cutting myself, drinking and doing drugs every day. I became a walking cliche a poster girl for teenage angst. My anorexia started not too long after and things deteriorated until I landed myself in hospital. At any time, regardless of the current function, just press this button again to turn off the toy.

horse dildo Sometimes we also need to accept what our body does totally out of our control, whether we like it or not. That might be ejaculating before we'd like, farting during sex, making certain noises or things like muscle spasms, urinating during some kinds of sex or having certain body parts just stop working when we're not done using them yet. Some people with some kinds of disabilities need to accept that it might take them longer to connect with their own bodies sexually or with someone else's in some ways, or take longer to learn to be sexual with others: this is a flexibility a lot of people, especially young people, could benefit from nurturing with sex and sexuality.. horse dildo

Brady and Patriots Visit Watson and Texans in Battle of AFC Division Leaders on NBC’s Sunday Night Football

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.

For the first time ever, fans will be able to record content on the bus to share directly to their social platforms, with new experiences including augmented reality mirrors in the locker room and a green screen booth to replicate the iconic player intros in the SNF broadcast.

In addition, fan favorites returning to the bus include the official Player of the Game Ball signed at the end of every SNF matchup, a replica Football Night in America desk, and a brand new On Her Turf photo experience celebrating the power of every football fan.

** Thanksgiving Night Game

FLEXIBLE SCHEDULING: Flexible scheduling will be used in Weeks 11-17. Additionally, in Weeks 5-10, flexible scheduling may be used in no more than two weeks. In Weeks 5-16, the schedule lists the games tentatively set for Sunday Night Football on NBC. Only Sunday afternoon games are eligible to be moved to Sunday night, in which case the tentatively scheduled Sunday night game would be moved to an afternoon start time. Flexible scheduling will not be applied to games airing on Thursday or Monday nights.

A flexible scheduling move would be announced at least 12 days before the game. For Week 17, the Sunday night game will be announced no later than six days prior to December 29. The schedule does not list a Sunday night game in Week 17, but an afternoon game with playoff implications will be moved to that time slot. Flexible scheduling ensures quality matchups in all Sunday time slots in those weeks, and gives “surprise” teams a chance to play their way into prime time.

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).

1.

The House Intelligence Committee is moving forward with the impeachment inquiry. Members will reportedly begin reviewing a report on the panel's investigation into President Trump's alleged efforts to pressure Ukraine to investigate his Democratic rivals Monday. They will reportedly have a 24-hour window to sift through the report before it goes to a vote Tuesday. The vote is mainly a formality and is expected to be split along party lines, which means it will likely be approved and then passed along to the House Judiciary Committee. The Judiciary Committee will then begin its own proceedings Wednesday. President Trump's counsel have been invited to attend and participate in the initial hearing, but there is no indication that will happen. [NBC News, Politico]

2.

Nine passengers were killed after a single engine plane crashed near Chamberlain, South Dakota, on Saturday. Among those killed were the pilot and two children. Three passengers survived and were taken to Sioux Falls, South Dakota. The plane was headed to Idaho Falls, Idaho. Chamberlain was reportedly in the midst of a winter storm at the time of the crash, though the National Transportation Safety Board is considering weather as just one possible factor in its investigation of the incident; no cause has been determined yet, and a preliminary investigation report is expected to be released within two weeks. The model of plane reportedly can carry no more than one pilot and 10 passengers. [The Associated Press, NPR]

3.

New Orleans Police said 11 people were shot early Sunday in the city's French Quarter, and two people are reportedly in critical condition. Initially, 10 people were taken to two different hospitals for treatment before another person walked into a hospital on their own. Police confirmed they were in the immediate area, just feet away from the shooting, since large crowds were gathered for the Bayou Classic football game between Southern and Grambling State. But the amount of people in the vicinity made it difficult to determine who fired the shots. One person was reportedly detained, but it isn't clear if the individual was involved in the shooting. The investigation is ongoing. [ABC News, NBC News]

4.

Former Vice President Joe Biden launched an eight-day, 18-county bus tour in Iowa on Saturday, as he looks to make progress in the state before the Democratic presidential primary caucus in February. The tour, which has been named "No Malarkey," will reportedly allow Biden to meet face-to-face with Iowans, with a particular emphasis on the state's rural communities. Biden is aiming to appeal to people he meets by showing how his healthcare, agriculture, education, and climate change plans will benefit those communities, but he also reportedly wants to focus on their values, which he said were under attack from President Trump. [The Des Moines Register]

5.

Tens of thousands of pro-democracy, anti-government protesters returned to the streets Sunday in Hong Kong. The latest march was approved by authorities and began peacefully, but eventually ended with police clearing the demonstrators, dispersing crowds with tear gas. Some protesters reportedly veered off the sanctioned paths and and hurled insults at police, whom they have accused of brutality, while carrying vulgar signs. After the march, some masked protesters in the city's Whampoa district damaged traffic lights, blocked roads, and vandalized shops and restaurants believed to have links to mainland China, prompting riot police to arrive at the scene. At least three people were were arrested in the area. [The South China Morning Post, The Washington Post]

6.

A shootout Saturday in the town of Villa Union, a small town near the U.S. border, resulted in the deaths of 10 suspected cartel gunmen and four police officers. Six other police officers were reportedly injured. The governor of the northern state of Coahuila, Miguel Angel Riquelme, said the state acted "decisively" in response to the presence of the cartel members. The heavy fighting reportedly began around noon and lasted for more than an hour. Riquelme said authorities identified 14 vehicles involved in the attack and seized more than a dozen guns. The fighting took place following President Trump's announcement that he was preparing to designate the cartels as terrorist groups, which didn't sit well with Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who hopes to avoid direct foreign intervention in Mexico. [The New York Times, Al Jazeera]

7.

Black Friday shoppers reportedly spent $7.4 billion online, making Friday the second-largest online shopping day ever, trailing only last year's Cyber Monday event. Online sales rose by 19.6 percent from last year. Meanwhile, brick-and-mortar retail fell by 6.2 percent compared to last year, signaling a growing preference for online purchasing. The decline, though, may also be related to growing store traffic on Thursday evening, which increased by 2.3 percent. "There is no longer one way to shop on Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday," said Brian Field, senior director of global retail consulting for ShopperTrak. Estimates for Cyber Monday are as high as $9.4 billion. [CNBC, Reuters]

8.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is leading a Democrat-only congressional delegation consisting of 13 House members and one senator to Madrid's COP25 summit. "One of the goals we have is to make sure that all of those who are in the Paris Accord know that the Democratic majority in the Congress of the American people are very concerned about the climate issue, understand that we have to set goals and have a plan on how to achieve them, and to talk about some of the things that we have done," Pelosi told Bloomberg Environment before departing for Spain. The Democrats attending reportedly range from members of Congress who support the Green New Deal to those who want to approach Washington's environmental policy more cautiously in the hopes of hammering out legislation alongside Republicans. [Bloomberg, CBS News]

9.

Actor Leonardo DiCaprio denied accusations made by Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro that he was funding arson in the Amazon. Earlier this week, Bolsonaro alleged DiCaprio was donating money to non-governmental organizations that he alleges contributed to the forest fires that ravaged the rainforest earlier this year. In an Instagram post Saturday, DiCaprio denied Bolsonaro's claims and stated his support for Brazilian groups working to protect the Amazon, but he said he did not fund the groups targeted by the president. Additionally, two major environmental groups protecting the Amazon criticized Bolsonaro's accusations, calling them an attempt to "undermine environmental defenders and distract the general public from policies that directly lead to environmental disasters." [CNN, The Daily Beast]

10.

Free-agent wide receiver Terrelle Pryor reportedly was in critical condition following surgery after he was stabbed in the chest and shoulder at his apartment in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on Friday evening, but he is expected to make a full recovery. An unidentified woman faces an attempted homicide charge, and Pryor also reportedly faces an unknown charge. Pittsburgh Police said they are investigating the incident. A male stabbing victim reportedly walked into the hospital at 4:30 a.m. E.T. on Saturday. Police didn't identify the man, but a source confirmed to ESPN that it was Pryor. The 30-year-old Ohio State alum began his NFL career in 2011 and suited up for the Oakland Raiders, Cleveland Browns, Washington Redskins, Buffalo Bills, and New York Jets through 2018. He hasn't played this season after being released by the Jacksonville Jaguars in September. [ESPN]

Boeuf River, NSDAR learns about history

 Cache   

Bouf River Chapter, NSDAR, met November 18, 2019 in the Richland Parish Library with Mary Pruitt as hostess.

Memembers enjoyed delicious refreshments and a social time before the program. Regent Mary Griffin called the meeting to order. Program Chairman Jody Waller introduced Carolyn Calloway, American History Teacher at Riverfield Academy. Emphasis on American History is one of our aims. Carolyn had been teaching for approximately 20 years. 

As we know our history is really important, expeciall to the young generation. The Chapter presented her a book and a certificate to honor her. We all should value and remember our past and the heroes of our country. Through the years we have studied and respected men of the past and their strength for the great issues and they established. 

This year we are learning about some of the great women patriots and their combined plans that help make this great country:  Jane Adams 1860, Susan B. Anthony, Angela Munsan, an immigration Judge to mention a few. 

Also Gayle Waller gave an interesting study on Margaret Cockran  Corbin. She was considered a hero at the American Revolution. Her live inspired courage and resilience that served her well at that time Corbin was a great example then and now. She was hailed as taking a large part in the War for Liberty. Lady of Honor was her title. 

A brief summary on the early history of Louisiana was read. Baton Rouge was an important location at this time and also the Pentagon Barracks are one of the historical landmarks from that time. 

A business session followed the program. Kay Sharbono read the President General message. Minutes were read, the treasurer’s report was given. The Wreath Across America donations was stated. Also one of our members, Jan Marie Hales Stickland, is philanthropy chairman in the Junior Monroe Garden Club and noted they did a herb garden at the Northeast Louisiana Veteran’s Home. The veterans can enjoy this and use the herbs. 

A new DAR Chapter in Louisiana, the Cane River Chapter, has been organized. The oldest DAR Chapter in the state, Spirit of 76, is in New Orleans, which began in 1895. There are 41 chapters in Louisiana. Many facts of interest were presented in this meeting. 

The December meeting will be in the Richland Parish Library.

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.

DETROIT (AP) — Looks like the Minnesota Vikings have a feel for desperation.And desperation pass plays.Kirk Cousins took a shotgun snap Replica Olisaemeka Udoh Jersey , rolled slightly to his right, stepped up and heaved a pass from near midfield into the end zone.Article continues below ...Kyle Rudolph leaped to make a go-ahead touchdown catch.Cousins’ 44-yard Hail Mary to Rudolph as time expired in the first half put the Minnesota Vikings ahead and they beat the Detroit Lions 27-9 Sunday, moving a step closer to playing in the postseason.“It was a big way to gain some momentum going into the half after a slow start,” Cousins said. “They were calling it a Hail Rudy after it happened.”Minnesota famously beat New Orleans in the playoffs last January on Diggs’ game-ending, 61-yard touchdown reception to advance to the NFC championship game.The Vikings could have clinched a spot in the playoffs with a win and losses by Washington and Philadelphia this weekend. The Redskins lost to Tennessee on Saturday, and shortly after Minnesota walked into its locker room at Ford Field, the Eagles beat Houston on a game-ending field goal.Minnesota (8-6-1) can still earn a spot in the postseason by closing the regular season with a win against NFC North champion Chicago at home, or by having wild-card hopefuls lose in Week 17.“We don’t want to leave it up to anyone else,” Rudolph said.The Vikings overcame an awful start offensively, scoring two touchdowns on Cousins’ passes over the last 1:32 of the second quarter, and relied on their defense all afternoon against Detroit.Minnesota had almost as many punts (4) as yards (5) before Cousins led an eight-play, 69-yard drive that ended with an 8-yard touchdown pass to Stefon Diggs late in the first half. On the Vikings’ next possession after calling timeout with 2 seconds left in the second quarter against a three-man rush, Cousins capped a 70-yard drive with his Hail Mary to Rudolph, who didn’t have much traffic in front of him,.“I didn’t have to move one step off of my spot. I was able to jump,” said the 6-foot-6 Rudolph, who was a highly touted high school basketball player in Cincinnati. “I joked earlier I had a lot of rebounds in high school basketball and at that point, it turns into another rebound, so maybe see if I can get that added to my career total.”In the same end zone three years ago, Aaron Rodgers connected with Richard Rodgers on a winning desperation pass to lift the Packers to a win over Detroit to help them make a push to get into the postseason.Cousins finished 21 of 28 for 253 yards with three touchdowns, matching his career high with 29 set in 2015 with the Redskins. Rudolph had a career-high 122 yards receiving, matched a career high with two touchdown receptions, and had a season-high nine receptions.The Lions (5-10) wasted opportunities to have a comfortable cushion in the first half because their offense stalled repeatedly. They had to settle for three field goals and a 9-0 lead, and then they had to deal with a 14-9 deficit after the Hail Mary.“When those things happen, certainly they have a little bit of a toll on you,” coach Matt Patricia acknowledged.Detroit has dropped four of five and seven of nine since reaching .500 in late October Olisaemeka Udoh Jersey nfl draft , falling apart in Patricia’s first season as a head coach after the franchise fired coach Jim Caldwell with a 36-28 record over four seasons.The playing-for-pride Lions got off to a strong start defensively against the playoff-hopeful Vikings, holding them without a first down until there were three-plus minutes left in the first half.With the ball, though, Detroit could not to take advantage of favorable field position against a stingy defense. The Lions were relegated to Matt Prater kicking one field goal in the first quarter and two in the second.The Vikings opened the second half with a field goal for a 17-9 lead that looked like it would be enough against a team that failed to score a touchdown against them in two games this season. Minnesota sent a lot of fans out of Ford Field early in the second half when Cousins threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to Rudolph to go ahead by 15 points.STAFFORD SITSMatthew Stafford was 18 of 32 for 116 yards and was replaced with 4:10 left by Matt Cassel, who was welcomed by cheers before the Lions were called for a false start prior to his first snap.“It’s frustrating that that’s the way the game went,” said Stafford, who is playing through a back injury. “Coach makes those decisions. Always want to be out there, understand where he’s coming from with it. He knows what I’m dealing with and going through. As far as fans’ reaction, it doesn’t make any difference.”INJURY REPORTVikings: CB Marcus Sherels left with a foot injury in the first quarter and didn’t return. CB Xavier Rhodes (groin) limped off the field in the fourth quarter. FB C.J. Ham (elbow) had an elbow injury.Lions: TE Luke Willson (concussion), DT A’Shawn Robinson (knee), DeShawn Shead (knee) were hurt during the game.UP NEXTVikings: Host the Bears on Sunday.“It’s going to be like a playoff game,” Rudolph said.Lions: Close the season at Green Bay on Sunday.

Not a whole lot of news on the Vikings front since our last mock. They’ve signed Adam Thielen to a nice extension, a couple of AAF players, and a backup QB, but overall, it’s nothing that should affect their draft strategy in any meaningful way. So, let’s get on with with another mock, our eighth. If you care about any of the other ones I’ve done, you can check them out here:But if you are a person imbued with common sense, self-worth Minnesota Vikings Jerseys 2019 , and dignity and want to skip those, please do. No one will blame you; conversely, people might actually think better of you, if we’re being brutally honest here.You’re still here? Okay. I’m as surprised as you are, but let’s get going. Consider these the ground rules for how I do these mocks:I’m not a professional scout, coach, or GM. I am, however, a Professional Idiot.If you EVER get to the point where you think ‘man this guy is pretty sharp about drafting and stuff’ go back and read the previous sentence. Then talk to any member of my family, immediate or extended, and they’ll set you straight.My methodology is fairly straightforward. I’m using Fanspeak’s On The Clock deluxe, high falutin’ draft simulator, that allows me to make and receive trade offers.In formulating and/or accepting trades, I’m using the 2019 Drafttek Trade Value Chart. I know most teams don’t follow it to the number, and other trades include players, like the Percy Harvin trade a few years back. Trading players in this simulation isn’t an option, and you have to have some kind of baseline, so this is mine:Minnesota’s biggest need is still the offensive line, even with free agency essentially done...but I don’t think it’s a mandatory, gotta pick in the first round kind of need anymore. I still believe it’s the primary area of concern, so with that in mind this is what I feel are the Vikings needs:Offensive lineDefensive lineTight End/Wide Receiver In the past, I said I would try to mimic GM Rick Spielman, but I think I’m just gonna be me for this one, as in ‘what would I like to see happen?’ I would like to see the Vikings trade down, if possible, and get a couple extra picks. If the Vikings could get an extra day one or two pick by making a trade Olisaemeka Udoh Minnesota Vikings Jerseys , I think it would help shore up both lines, and give them more top talent on the roster.In setting up the draft variables, I chose to use the On The Clock Composite Big Board, just to change things up a bit. The computer is using multiple, as will be the case in real life, the setting is classic, and team needs are user voted.These are the picks the Vikings have heading into the 2019 Draft:1st RoundWhen the round opens, I get two trade offers:I’m going to be honest here: I’m half tempted to trade up with Denver to get in a position to draft Dwayne Haskins, and I’m not even kidding. But I don’t think he’d be there, so I’m going to turn that offer down. But that Patriots offer? Kind of farther down than I’d like to go, but it’s still in the first round, and I get an extra second and third round pick. I accept the offer.These are my new picks:I let the draft run through 26 picks, and most of the top offensive linemen are gone. I want to get a top guy and not risk losing out on marquee talent at my biggest position of need, so I’m going to try and swing a trade with Oakland. I make this offer:They accept, and although I lose my forth round pick, I get a high pick in the fifth round, while still keeping both second round picks and a third round pick. I am now on the clock, and this is my big board:Selection: Cody Ford, T, OklahomaRationale: He’s the best offensive lineman for a team that desperately needs one. I’m not overthinking this one.2nd RoundI get no trade offers when the round starts, but I get two when I come on the clock I get offers for both my second round picks:Eh, it’s a nice haul of picks, but I’d rather get top shelf talent in the first couple rounds, which is why I made the initial trade with the Patriots anyway, so I turn these offers down. Here’s my big board for the first selection:Selection, pick 50 (2/18): Irv Smith Youth Alexander Mattison Jersey , TE, ROLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL TIDERationale: So here’s the deal. If you think Kyle Rudolph will be around 3-4 more years, and/or the TE’s currently on the roster can step up and start, then this is a dumb pick. However, if you think Rudy is gone in a season or two (he will be), and/or the guys behind him can’t step up (I don’t think they can), then Smith makes a ton of sense here. I like having a pass catching threat to go with Stefon Diggs and Thielen, without wasting a pick on a wide receiver.Here’s the big board for my next second round pick:Selection, pick 56 (2/24): Chase Winovich, EDGE, That Team Up NorthRationale: For me, this pick was between either Winovich or Elgton Jenkins. WIth the moves the Vikings made in free agency, I think they have done more to address the offensive line than the defensive line, so I went with the defensive guy here.3rd RoundNo trade offers, so here’s my big board:Selection: Michael Jordan, G, THE Ohio State UniversityRationale: Although I think the Vikings have addressed the o-line, and I got Cody Ford, are the guys they signed in free agency long term answers? Jordan is a player that can push for a starting job, or at least be a realistic option for immediate depth on the interior.4th RoundNo Selection.5th RoundBig board for round five:Selection: T.J. Edwards, LB, WisconsinRationale: The Vikings need linebacker depth, and as we head into the fifth round and later, grit becomes a big factor in these selections as well as talent and need. All Wisconsin recruits are football Nick Puntos, and Edwards is as Nick Punto-y as Nick Punto.6th RoundWe’re pretty much through the ‘let’s make trades’ portion of mock drafts, because the actual late round trades on draft day are boring Super Bowl Alexander Mattison Jersey , much less fake ones. Big board:Selection, pick 190 (6/17): Lil’Jordan Humphrey, WR, TexasRationale: The Vikings need a WR, but between Troy Williamson and Laquon Treadwell, I don’t want them to pick a WR earlier than here ever again in the draft. Wait, I’ll be okay with a fifth, as long as it is the clone of Stefon Diggs. As we get to the sixth round and later, we add to ‘grit’ with ‘dudes with cool or weird names’. Boom, done.Selection, pick 209 (6/36): Gary Johnson, LB, TexasRationale: After several unsuccessful Presidential runs on the Libertarian ticket, the former governor of New Mexico will try to fulfill his childhood dream of playing in the NFL.7th RoundBig board:Selection, pick 247 (7/33): Johnnie Dixon, WR, THE Ohio StateRationale: I literally picked the highest ranked OSU player left. And I like DIxon.Selection, pick 250 (7/36): Easton Stick, QB, North Dakota StateRationale: When Stick to Dixon becomes more mythical than Montana to Rice, remember you heard it here first.RecapHere’s the draft class for A Mock Story:I like it. I got two offensive linemen and an EDGE rusher to shore up both lines, the best tight end in the draft that didn’t go to Iowa, and addressed pretty much all the remaining team needs. To get here I made these trades:

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.

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).

New Orleans Shooting Leaves 10 Injured

 Cache   


Early Sunday morning, at least ten people were shot on Canal Street, at the edge of the French Quarter New Orleans. NPR reports that two out of the ten victims were in critical condition.

None


Per CNN, New Orleans Police Department Chief Shaun Ferguson told reporters that the two people in critical condition suffered from gunshot wounds on their torso.

None


The shooting began at about 3:21 am, after the festivities for Saturday's 46th annual Bayou Classic college football game. Luckily, police officers were close by. "We had officers right there within that very block that actually thought that they were being fired upon and took a position to respond to this," Ferguson said to the press." An individual was arrested near the scene of the crime. However, their involvement in the incident is still under investigation, and no further details were given.

None


New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell tweeted a statement saying, "When people resort to gun violence to resolve problems, it never creates solutions — only innocent victims and trauma." She continued, "The shootings on Canal Street early this morning were an ugly disruption of an otherwise beautiful holiday weekend. We will do everything we can to wrap the victims and their families in our love and support, and to bring the criminals responsible to justice."

Panthers fear DT Dontari Poe done for season with torn quad

 Cache   
The Panthers fear that Dontari Poe suffered a torn quadriceps muscle in Sunday’s loss to the Saints (Twitter link via NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport). Poe is having an MRI to confirm the injury, but the club thinks it already knows the result, which will end Poe’s season.  The Panthers’ thin playoff hopes took a major blow on Sunday with the loss to New Orleans, and it figures to be rough sledding the rest of the way without Poe, who was an anchor for the defensive line. Through 11 games (10 starts), Poe notched four sacks from the interior, plus 22 tackles and seven tackles for a loss. For his work, Pro Football Focus has Poe rated as the No. 40 interior defensive lineman in the league. The Panthers can be expected to look into DT help between now and Sunday’s game against the Redskins. While they’re at it, they may also shake up the kicker spot by replacing Joey Slye with another leg.

Gerald McCoy had funny compliment for Christian McCaffrey while mic’d up

 Cache   
Christian McCaffrey has been virtually unstoppable this season, and his Carolina Panthers teammates are still in awe of what he is able to accomplish on a weekly basis. On Sunday, Gerald McCoy had a great way of expressing that. McCoy was mic’d up for the Panthers’ game against the New Orleans Saints, and the defensive lineman told the NFL Films crew on the sideline that McCaffrey is the “most skilled white dude in NFL history.” He also called McCaffrey a “bad white boy.” It’s rare for a non-quarterback to win the NFL MVP Award, but McCaffrey is a legitimate candidate. He already had over 1,500 total yards from scrimmage and 14 touchdowns entering Sunday, and that was in just 10 games. McCaffrey is arguably the best running back in football, and he has been trying to counter the white running back stereotype dating back to his days at Stanford. He sent a very subtle message before the season hinting that we should expect big things from him, and to say he has followed through would be an understatement.
          

Winners and losers from Thursday's Thanksgiving NFL action

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.

Queen & Slim Is Thrilling, Powerful, and Strikingly Black

 Cache   
by Jenni Moore

Andre D. Wagner / Universal Pictures

Queen & Slim may be the best—and is almost certainly the Blackest—film of 2019. One of the most striking things about the movie is that it’s intentionally absent of the white gaze. The directorial debut of Melina Matsoukas (of Master of None and “Formation” fame), it’s also the first film-length screenplay written by Lena Waithe, who knocked bestselling author James Frey’s original story idea out of the park after also making the jump from acting and writing on TV (Master of None and The Chi).

In Waithe’s recent interview circuit on shows like The Breakfast Club, The Daily Show, and Sway's Universe, she calls Queen & Slim “a meditation on Blackness,” and explains that a bunch of production companies were pursuing her and Matsoukas to get the ball rolling, desperately sending them gifts because they knew Queen & Slim would have a big impact. One of their requirements for signing on with Universal was an ample budget and a guarantee that Matsoukas and Waithe would have say over the final cut—a choice Waithe says was to ensure the film wasn’t influenced whatsoever by the white gaze. They only did one test screening, with an all-Black audience; the result is a new American romance/drama written in the Black American language, told via a fully Black lens, and including a diverse array of characters who show that Black people are not a monolith. For 48 hours after seeing this movie, I couldn’t stop thinking about it.

The trailer for Queen & Slim—in which one man says “Well, if it isn’t the Black Bonnie and Clyde”—could lead one to believe this movie is another lazy attempt to remake an old story (but make it Black!). But that comparison isn’t accurate at all. Unlike Bonnie and Clyde, Queen and Slim (Jodie Turner-Smith and Daniel Kaluuya) are ordinary law-abiding citizens who, after an okay Tinder date, get pulled over by a racist cop who decides to create a life-or-death altercation over a missed turn signal. While Queen, a licensed attorney, has a more confrontational “Malcolm X” response to the officer’s aggressive demeanor, Slim embodies MLK’s turn the other cheek approach—but not enough to offset Queen's behavior. After the unreasonably angry cop escalates the situation, unnecessarily searches the car, and shoots Queen in the leg, Slim ends up grabbing the cop's gun and killing the officer in self-defense. The two decide they have no choice but to evade law enforcement to survive.

My first thought at this point was: Don’t they know about the cop’s dash cam that undoubtedly filmed this entire incident!? Right then, the movie answered my query: The dash camera footage is released to the public and goes viral, and the two are labeled “cop killers,” becoming celebrities overnight—making their on-the-run road trip across the country all the more stressful and riveting. From the film’s start, we get the feeling that this won’t end well, but it’s their epic journey and and the growing relationship—between two people who probably wouldn’t have gone on a second date—that instantly becomes a thrill to watch. They may not have liked each other when the film began, but the longer they drive, the more they see the humanity in each other, fall in love, and shape the rest of their lives together.


Queen & Slim is perhaps most poignant for its gorgeous, complex, and multifaceted portrayal of the Black experience, where sparks of joy and love exist alongside pain, struggle, and oppression.


Queen & Slim is perhaps most poignant for its gorgeous, complex, and multifaceted portrayal of the Black experience, where sparks of joy and love exist alongside pain, struggle, and oppression. While there are definitely triggering parts (I cried twice), I also laughed a lot and, like many of the film’s characters, I genuinely enjoyed rooting for the criminalized, on-the-run protagonists. On top of all the beautiful shots and engaging storytelling, the film is also just flat-out entertaining: Everything out of Uncle Earl’s (Bokeem Woodbine) mouth was hilarious; the soundtrack is excellent as it deepens the impact of the pair’s road trip from Cleveland to Savannah and New Orleans as they try to make their way to Cuba, where they hope to find political asylum (similar to Assata Shakur's journey); and after the perfect amount of build-up, Queen & Slim delivers the hottest sex scene I’ve seen in a quite a while, with it quickly becoming apparent how rare it is to see two dark-skinned bodies make love like this on screen.

Even though Queen and Slim spend the entirety of the film on the run and oppressed for simply trying to survive a traffic stop, Black unity is one of the film’s most notable driving forces. The two lean on favors from family, friends of family, and perfect strangers (mostly Black, but there are a couple white ones) who help them get a little bit further on their journey. Even when it comes to the Black characters who aren’t on their “side,” or who may disagree with Queen and Slim’s choices, almost all of them still have respect for the no-snitching code, or at the very least stay out of the couple’s way. I loved seeing this film with the Black man that I love, in a theater filled with other Black people; it felt appropriate to experience another layer of Black unity in our shared reactions to the film’s plethora of emotionally charged twists and turns.

While this film was absolutely made by and for Black people, non-Black folk will also enjoy (and likely be mesmerized by) Queen & Slim’s unfiltered storytelling of the modern Black American experience. The movie’s got a sharp focus on the critical choices Black people must make: stand up to authority or survive; kill or be killed; surrender to an unjust system or leave the only home you’ve ever known; live free or die. The film’s creators do not shy away from addressing America’s current reality of police brutality and the fact that the criminal justice system is designed to punish and enslave people of color.

At the film’s heart are powerful, too-true themes about Black people’s constant search for freedom, even in modern society. In Queen and Slim’s case, their entire trip together is a relentless quest for freedom, and they have a really good run until the bitter—and iconic—end.


Queen & Slim opens Wed Nov 27 at various theaters.

Richard Arnold: US authorities investigate after mass shooting in New Orleans

 Cache   
New Orleans police are investigating a mass shooting that wounded 10 people early Sunday near the city's famed French Quarter.
Two of the 10 were in critical condition in local hospitals, Police Superintendent Shaun Ferguson said. No arrests were announced by midday Sunday.
"What happened in our city overnight was a cowardly and senseless act that we cannot and will not tolerate," Ferguson said in a statement.
Ferguson told The New Orleans Advocate/The Times-Picayune that a person of interest has been detained, but it was not immediately clear whether the person had any connection to the shooting.
The shooting happened about 3:20 a.m. on a busy commercial block of Canal Street that has streetcar tracks and is near many hotels.
Ferguson said police quickly responded to the scene as patrols were heightened for this weekend's Bayou Classic, the annual Thanksgiving weekend rivalry football game between Grambling State and Southern University at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
"While this investigation is in the very beginning stages, one thing is certain — we will not stop until we identify and arrest those responsible," Ferguson said in his statement.
New Orleans Mayor Latoya Cantrell also pledged to bring the perpetrators to justice.
"The shootings on Canal Street early this morning were an ugly disruption of an otherwise beautiful holiday weekend. We will do everything we can to wrap the victims and their families in our love and support, and to bring the criminals responsible to justice," she said via Twitter on Sunday.
Kenneth Culbreth told The New Orleans Advocate/The Times-Picayune that he had gone into a CVS pharmacy in the early morning hours to make a quick purchase. Moments later, he walked out to a crime scene.
"On my way out of the CVS, I heard pops," Culbreth said. "It was so many, I couldn't keep count."
Culbreth spent the rest of the morning watching the scene, with law enforcement and several emergency vehicles moving in and out at a rapid pace.
Police initially said 10 people were wounded. They later said 11 were wounded, but the police department then sent a statement saying the correct number was 10.
          

REPORT: 11 People Injured, 2 In Critical Condition After Shots Ring Out In New Orleans

There are reports that 11 people have been shot – 2 in critical condition – early Sunday in New Orleans’ famed French Quarter. Details inside…

Shots rang out early Sunday morning in New Orleans’ French Quarter and it resulted in 11 people being shot, leaving 2 of them in critical condition.

The New Orleans Police Department initially said there were 10 victims. However, they added an additional person after that person walked into a local hospital seeking treatment.

 

 

 

 

The shooting happened right off of Bourbon Street near a busy commercial block of Canal Street. There was a high police presence in the area due to the annual Bayou Classic football game between Grambling State University and Southern University that’s played at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The game always brings out a crowd, so police were in the mix.

 

 

While police reported they detained someone near the scene, they still haven't made any arrests yet. Police Supt. Shaun Ferguson said police didn't waste any time to respond to the shots since they were already in the area.

New Orleans mayor LaToya Cantrell issued a statement via Twitter addressing the shooting:

EVERYBODY'S GIVING BACK! Megan Thee Stallion, 21 Savage, Big Sean & More Host Tons Of Families For Thanksgiving

Celebs are lacing families with food so they can enjoy a Happy Thanksgiving. More inside…

Happy Holidays!

It’s that time of year again for turkey, stuffing, greens and all your Thanksgiving food staples to enjoy while spending time with family and friends. Before spending time with their own families, several celebs hosted Thanksgiving dinners for those less fortunate.

Megan Thee Stallion trekked it back to her hometown and made a beeline to the Houston Food Bank to donate turkeys to families in Houston.

”I landed right off my flight and came straight to the @houstonfoodbank and hotties we’ve already donated over 1,000 turkeys to families in Houston and still giving them out tonight and tomorrow!!!,” she captioned a video of herself handing out turkeys. “Thank you @houstonfoodbank and all the volunteers that came out for helping me give back to the city.”

 

 

 

 

The Houston Chronicle reports the FEVER rapper donated $15,400 worth of turkeys that were distributed to 1,050 households for Thanksgiving. The Fifth Ward, Southwest Houston and Kashmere Gardens were the neighborhoods that received the donations. 

An IG user hopped in Megan's comments and tried to discredit her good deed, but she served up the perfect response:

21 Savage has yet to receive a court date for his immigration case, however, he's still taking time to give back to others. According to reports the 27-year-old rapper is not being allowed to tour outside of the US after being arrested and detained by ICE due his immigration status. It could take years before his immigration case is heard and he could still face deportation at that time.

"It is an honor and a pleasure for the Durant family to support families in our community during this holiday, and we do so with humble hearts and grateful spirits," Wanda said. She said her passion is to inspire under-served children and single mothers in communities much like those Kevin grew up in and others.

In Atlanta...

 

 

Superproducer Jermaine Dupri gave away vegan Thanksgiving meals.

"You know I’ve noticed everyone is feeding the needy families and homeless doing a great job but the overall thought is if your in either one of these positions, you have no choice,that’s where I come in," he wrote on Instagram. "Many traditional Thanksgiving foods are already vegan—like sweet potatoes, cranberries, pumpkins, and string beans.people just need alil education,once again thank you @Peta for making this possible @handsonatl @sweeac @cafesunflower and @the_tofurky_company God bless and Happy Thanksgiving"

Jermaine has been vegan for more than 10 years. He joined forces with PETA to feed 50 Atlanta families vegan eats for the holidays.

In Michigan...

 

 

Rapper Big Sean and actor Hill Harper helped Michigan Lieutenant Governor Garlin Gilchrist to give away more than 5,000 turkeys right before Thanksgiving.

In this roundtable entitled "Narrating Migration: Emerging Methods and Cross-Disciplinary Directions," held at the 2019 Middle East Studies Association Annual Meeting in New Orleans, two historians--Reem Bailony and Andrew Arsan--and two sociologists--Rawan Arar and Neda Maghbouleh discuss their experiences and approaches to studying migration. Throughout this conversation with our four authors about their own research, we speak to the following questions: What are the promises and dangers of narrative in migration studies? What role do language and affect play in writing migrant stories? How should we write them? How do different disciplines approach migration? What challenges and possibilities are presented by the source base? How do various sources (e.g., state, personal, oral) intersect or diverge? What are overlooked areas (e.g., spatial, temporal, political, social) with regard to migration and the modern Middle East? How do experiences of MENA migration and diaspora contribute to migration studies broadly speaking? How does this work impact historiographies of the Global North, South-South relations, and other places where MENA migrants have gone? What promise might the study of MENA migration hold for decolonial scholarship?

Former racing commission official, Neal Cormier, fined for ethics violation
NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A Louisiana Ethics Board has fined a former racing commission official for ethics violations from seven years ago.
  
The Times-Picayune/The New Orleans Advocate reports a $50,000 penalty was levied against Neal Cormier on Nov. 18.
  
Cormier is accused of leasing stall space to racehorse owners and trainers regulated by the commission. The ethics board charged Cormier and two others with separate violations in 2012 - one member was fined but didn’t admit guilt and the other’s case was dismissed.
  
The board called Cormier’s dealings “illegal gains,” though it reported no evidence was found that Cormier took advantage of his status to achieve them.
  
The newspaper reports the ethics board has been criticized for drawn-out legal processes. He was appointed in 2008 by Gov. Bobby Jindal.

New Orleans police say 10 people shot near French Quarter
NEW ORLEANS (AP) - New Orleans police say 11 people were hit in an early morning shooting on the edge of the city’s famed French Quarter.
  
A police release says two people are in critical condition and no arrests have been made. Police Supt. Shaun Ferguson tells The New Orleans Advocate/The Times-Picayune that a person of interest has been detained.
  
Police say 10 people were taken to two hospitals and an 11th was a walk-in. Further details haven’t been released.
  
The shooting took place on a busy commercial block of Canal Street that has streetcar tracks and is near many hotels. Ferguson says police quickly responded to the scene as patrols were heightened for this weekend’s Bayou Classic, the annual Thanksgiving weekend rivalry football game between Grambling State and Southern University that’s played at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Southern clinches SWAC West title, 30-28 over Grambling
NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Ladarius Skelton passed for two touchdowns and Southern blocked a field goal with 5 seconds left to clinch the Southwest Athletic Conference West Division title with a 30-28 win over Grambling in the Bayou Classic on Saturday.
  
The Jaguars (8-4, 6-1) travel to Alcorn State for the conference championship next Saturday. Alcorn State beat Southern 37-28 in last year’s championship game.
  
Jarod Sims scored on a 36-yard TD run to give Southern a 30-28 lead with 14:11 left in the game. The PAT was blocked, which gave Grambling a chance to go ahead with a field goal in the final seconds. But Miguel Mendez’s 40-yard attempt was blocked.
  
The Tigers (6-5, 4-3) led 21-3 in the second quarter. Southern closed the deficit to 21-17 before halftime and took the lead at 24-21 late in the third quarter.
  
Sims finished with 89 yards rushing and two TD runs for Southern.
  
Keilon Elder had 112 yards rushing and a TD run for Grambling.

Holiday traffic keeps travelers in BR longer than they'd like

Holiday traffic keeps travelers in BR longer than they'd like

BATON ROUGE – The Thanksgiving holiday has come to an end. Mix that with a big weekend for college football means traffic Sunday morning and throughout the afternoon was slow going.

Dec. 1st is one of the biggest travel days of the year. Baton Rouge Police are aware of this so staffed ten extra officers along the interstate to ease congestion.

The gridlock only affected westbound lanes. Many were either heading back home after visiting family in the capital area, heading to Texas after the LSU, Texas A&M game or coming back from New Orleans after the Bayou Classic.

“I'm thinking that I should have gotten up and left at 6 am this morning instead of sleeping in,” said Gabriel Sausnock who was in town to see the Tigers play. She says traffic looked a lot better coming in. “It was heavy coming from Texas to Louisiana but just coming over the bridge is the only place we ever got stopped.”

At one point, traffic backed up for 13 miles making some travelers stick around before taking off.

“Hopefully it will be cleared out by the time we get back on the road,” said Collin Brewer heading back home to Mississippi. “It seems like traffic is at a standstill. It’s really congested.”

Moulin Rouge! The Musical, directed by Tony Award nominee Alex Timbers and with a book by Tony Award winner John Logan, choreography by Sonya Tayeh and music supervision, orchestrations and arrangements by Justin Levine, is now playing on Broadway at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre (302 W. 45th Street, NYC).

Enter a world of splendor and romance, of eye-popping excess, of glitz, grandeur and glory! A world where Bohemians and aristocrats rub elbows and revel in electrifying enchantment. Pop the champagne and prepare for the spectacular spectacular...Welcome to Moulin Rouge! The Musical.

Baz Luhrmann's revolutionary film comes to life onstage, remixed in a new musical mash-up extravaganza. Moulin Rouge! The Musical is a theatrical celebration of truth, beauty, freedom, and - above all - love. Moulin Rouge! The Musical is more than a musical; it is a state of mind.

"Spectacular! Euphoric! In Moulin Rouge! The Musical, life is beautiful," raves Ben Brantley of The New York Times. "Moulin Rouge! The Musical is a fabulous new musical. The high begins the instant you walk into the theatre," says Johnny Oleksinski of the NY Post. And Leah Greenblatt of Entertainment Weekly concludes that "it's easy to believe that Moulin Rouge! The Musical could run for 50 years."

As in the film, Moulin Rouge! The Musical celebrates some of the greatest popular music of the last 50 years. The stage musical features many of the iconic songs from the movie and also includes recent hits released since the movie premiered 18 years ago.

The Moulin Rouge of Paris is a dazzling and spectacular universe, the symbol of the Parisian way of celebrating since 1889. Starting life as a popular cabaret and dance hall, the venue became an iconic music hall in the Roaring Twenties, and then a theatre where numerous famous French and International Artistes stepped out into the limelight.

The Moulin Rouge! The Musical US national tour launches in November 2020 at New Orleans' Saenger Theatre. The musical will have its Australian premiere at Melbourne's Regent Theatre in 2021 and open in London's West End at the Piccadilly Theatre in March 2021.

The Moulin Rouge! The Musical Original Broadway Cast Recording is now nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album. The album, produced by Baz Luhrmann, Justin Levine, Matt Stine & Alex Timbers, is now available by Baz Luhrmann's label, House of Iona, and RCA Records. The album debuted at #1 on Billboard's Cast Album chart.


          

ICYMI: News & Notes from Acquia, November 2019

ICYMI: News & Notes from Acquia, November 2019

Welcome to our Acquia News & Notes series where we’ll recap top announcements, customer stories and media drivers over the past month! 

Acquia’s been making news all over the world this month from London to Ottawa to Munich and, of course, to New Orleans for our annual user conference, Acquia Engage! Engage was a rousing success full of inspiration from our partners, customers and our keynote, two-time World Cup champion and Olympic gold medalist Kelley O’Hara. With so many digital leaders in one space, it’s not surprising that the insights and conversations from Engage kept going long after the event itself had wrapped. 

Roy Varghese, CIO of NOAA Fisheries, expanded on his Engage presentation in an interview with DMN on why the agency chose Acquia to redesign and consolidate more than 20 of their websites. “We liked the openness of the platform so that it can be extended for the other products and services that we may or may not build on this platform, so it gives us maximum flexibility,” Roy said. 

We also had several publications cover the event and our news including Forbes, CMS-Connected and TechTarget. Some key highlights include: 

  • “The Acquia survey offers a way for enterprises to up their CX capabilities. Personalization is key, with four of five consumers saying ‘brands that know their customers best will earn their loyalty.’ More than half (60%) said that brands who should know them, don’t.” - Forbes
  • “Understandably, the audience was quite aghast at these stats. With those statistical bombs being dropped, personalization became the white-hot topic for conference participants; clearly, there is an urgent need for work to be done in this area.” - CMS-Connected
  • “Acquia needs to remain heavily involved in Drupal, even though the investment of engineering resources might not show up as bottom-line revenue for Acquia's new owners, said Geoffrey Bock, analyst and principal for Bock and Company, an IT advisory firm in Newton, Mass.” - TechTarget

Engage is always a unique opportunity to showcase our vision for the future and weigh in on how digital is transforming how brands communicate with customers. Mark Grannan, senior analyst at Forrester, offered his perspective on the Digital Experience Platform (DXP) market during his main stage presentation. Mark spoke on Forrester’s assertion that the rise of agile CMS signals a new era for the entire industry. He also expanded on the observation in his recent blog that “open strategies are being rewarded” in the content management space.

Acquia Founder and CTO Dries Buytaert also backed the belief that “open source has won” when it comes to the future of digital content in a five-part series for InfoWorld. Dries advocated for open source sustainability and encouraged more widespread contribution to open source projects as a way to move toward a more democratized web. “I believe open source to be the only way to build a pro-privacy, anti-monopoly, open web. This will require open source communities to be long-term sustainable—possibly for hundreds of years,” he wrote. 

Moving forward, Acquia continues to be a top advocate for the power of open source, the Drupal community and building better digital experiences. Check back next month for the latest news and innovations from the Acquia newsroom.

Acquia Gives Thanks to Open Source Giants

At Engage New Orleans, our team had the pleasure of celebrating the best examples of our customers' and partners' work through the Acquia Engage Awards. We’ve shared stories of how ambitious brands are closing the CX gap, integrating content and commerce, and increasing donor engagement

In 2019, we also introduced a new category to pay homage to our open source roots, and to showcase the organizations contributing back to Drupal. The Open Source Giants category recognizes the strongest contributions to the Drupal ecosystem, whether it be through code contributions, event sponsorship, community mentorship or technical excellence.

In the spirit of Thanksgiving and giving back, we want to commemorate our 2019 winner and finalists in the inaugural Engage Awards Open Source Giants category.

Mediacurrent (Winner) 

Mediacurrent is an open source development and digital marketing agency that partners with enterprise, nonprofit, higher ed and government organizations. They believe in open source principles and adding value back into the community that allows others to improve. Each week, their staff dedicates time to contribute code, maintain modules and add to their repository of open source resources so that others can learn from their work. Some of their ongoing notable contributions include blogs, code, presentations, event planning, case studies and sponsorships.  

Some of the significant ways Mediacurrent has worked to propel the momentum of Drupal forward include:

  • 500+ content assets on the Mediacurrent Blog and Resource Center, covering the latest Drupal developments and best practices for digital strategy, UX and design.
  • 30+ Drupal case studies sharing lessons learned with the community.
  • 75+ Drupal events organized, as well as participation at camps, cons and user groups across the nation.

In 2019, the Mediacurrent development team created Rain: an enterprise-grade Drupal 8 installation profile. Rain provides free, out-of-the-box editorial, administrative and media enhancements to the core Drupal 8 installation. For two years, Mediacurrent conducted audits of the websites they built and identified the common modules, components and needs to create a successful Drupal 8 website. They gathered all their learnings and aligned this toolset in one place to share with the community along with the training resources, so that everyone can leverage Rain.

Elevated Third (Finalist)

With a presence in the Drupal community for more than 11 years, Elevated Third has contributed to Drupal in terms of code, community building and thought leadership. In 2019 alone, Elevated Third spoke at four separate Drupal events. They believe that “the foundation of a strong national and international community is a strong local community.” Whether it’s through sponsorship, organization or expert presentation, their team members take pride in sharing knowledge about enterprise B2B marketing, personalization, performance and admin user experience. Many members of the team were already putting in hours outside of their normal workweek to support Drupal, the community and software project that allowed them to do what they love every day. 

Elevated Third found that the projects they were working on aligned with the needs of their clients and established a contribution budget to reward employees for their efforts and continue pushing these projects forward. A few key achievements that came from this initiative included:

  • Release of the 8.x-1.x branch of the Demandbase module and multiple patches merged into the 8.x-1.x branch of the Pardot module
  • Beta release of Paragraphs Browser, which makes managing 100+ individual Paragraphs significantly more user-friendly
  • Presentations given at DrupalCamp Asheville and DrupalCon Seattle educating attendees on personalization and website-building best practices

Elevated Third understands that “It Takes a Village to Raise a CMS” and that everyone from individuals to large enterprises to digital services to developer teams play a part in making Drupal successful. As an agency, they’re working to promote contributions beyond developer communities and spread awareness and education to the B2B enterprise space including, seamless integrations with marketing tools personalized website experiences and better execution of the entire customer journey at scale. 

Palantir.net and Digital Services Georgia (Finalist)

Full-service web agency Palantir.net believes in a mission to “Create good inside and out.” In the open source community, they do good by sharing their internal Drupal expertise with other individuals and companies to help them elevate their own projects. 

Back in 2016, with the announcement that the Google Search Appliance was reaching its end of life, many government entities and universities started looking around for replacement options. Palantir.net wanted to provide an open source solution that would help constituents find the information they need to stay informed and educated.

So, Palantir.net built Federated Search, which is freely available at Drupal.org and offers the following capabilities: 

  • A simple way to store, retrieve and parse content.
  • A cross-platform search application.
  • A speedy, usable, responsive front end.
  • A flexible, extensible, reusable model.

These features of Federated Search made it easier for constituents to find what they need. Palantir.net sought to create a way for enterprise customers to leverage open source search tools in order to enable a networked search across multiple versions of Drupal. When they migrated over 80+  sites from D7 to D8, Digital Services Georgia relied on the Palantir.net team to adapt the current search experience across their websites to new features available in Federated Search, including search filters for site, content type and date range.

As active members in the Drupal community, Palantir team members have made contributions to every facet of the Drupal project: core development, contributed modules, themes, financial assistance, training, documentation, conference organizing and participation on the Board of Directors and Advisory Board for the Drupal Association. 

Thank you to all of our Open Source Giants for setting an exceptional precedent for what it means to give back. To hear more of the inspiring stories from this year’s Engage Awards, check out our gallery of winners and finalists.

Packender Playoff-Kampf! So steht's im Super-Bowl-Rennen

 Cache   

Das Playoff-Rennen in der NFL ist in vollem Gange. Noch vier Spieltage haben die Teams zu absolvieren, dann steht der Weg bis zum Super Bowl LIV am 2. Februar 2020 in Miami fest.

Erst ein Team hat sich das Ticket gesichert, zahlreiche weitere Franchises kämpfen entweder um einen Platz in den Playoffs oder den wichtigen Heimvorteil in der eigenen Conference.

Sicher in die Playoffs ziehen die acht Division-Sieger ein, außerdem erhalten je zwei weitere Teams mit der besten Bilanz pro Conference einen Platz in den Wildcard Games der NFL. (SERVICE: Die Tabelle der NFL)

SPORT1 fasst das aktuelle Playoff-Rennen zusammen:

SICHER DABEI:

NEW ORLEANS SAINTS (10-2):

Die Saints haben dank fünf Siegen Vorsprung auf die Verfolger bereits Platz 1 in der NFC South sicher. Für New Orleans geht es nun darum, die beste Bilanz aller Teams in der NFC zu erreichen.

Die Chancen darauf stehen gut, mit vier weiteren Siegen würden Drew Brees und Co. aufgrund des gewonnenen Direktvergleichs bis zum Finale den Heimvorteil sicher haben. Der ESPN Football Power Index (FPI) gibt den Saints die beste Chance auf den Conference-Sieg (42,2 Prozent).

DIE AKTUELLEN DIVISION-LEADER:

AFC NORTH - BALTIMORE RAVENS (10-2):

Dank des Last-Minute-Sieges gegen die San Francisco 49ers am Sonntag und der Niederlage der New England Patriots in Houston haben sich die Ravens auf den ersten Platz der AFC geschoben. Da das direkte Duell gegen die Patriots gewonnen wurde, wäre der Heimvorteil bei vier weiteren Siegen bis zum Conference-Finale sicher.

Es sieht danach aus, als ob der Weg zum Super Bowl für alle AFC-Teams über Baltimore führt.

AFC EAST - NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS (10-2):

Durch die unnötige Niederlage bei den Texans haben die Patriots ihren Heimvorteil über die gesamten Playoffs nach aktuellem Stand der Dinge abgeben müssen. Das Restprogramm spricht mit drei Heimspielen und auswärts in Cincinnati (1-11) aber für den Meister, Tom Brady und Co. werden die Ravens unter Druck setzen. Von hinten lauern in der AFC East allerdings auch noch die Buffalo Bills (9-3), gegen die es im zweiten direkten Duell am vorletzten Spieltag noch um den Division-Sieg gehen könnte.

AFC SOUTH - HOUSTON TEXANS (8-4):

Der überraschende Triumph gegen die Patriots hat die Texans nicht nur zu einem harten Konkurrenten auf dem Weg zum Super Bowl gemacht, sondern auch die Playoff-Hoffnungen der Franchise deutlich erhöht.

Die Ravens und Patriots dürfte Houston nicht mehr einholen, Platz 3 in der AFC ist das Höchste der Gefühle. Entscheidend könnte am letzten Spieltag das Duell mit Tennessee werden, das in der AFC South nur einen Sieg hinter Houston liegt.

AFC WEST - KANSAS CITY CHIEFS (8-4):

Durch den klaren 40:9-Sieg im direkten Duell mit den Oakland Raiders haben die Chiefs Platz 1 in der AFC West bei zwei Siegen Vorsprung fast sicher. Ob Patrick Mahomes und Co. die Texans noch von Platz 3 in der Conference verdrängen können, hängt maßgeblich von deren Restsaison ab - das direkte Duell hat Kansas City verloren.

NFC WEST - SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS (10-2):

Bis Mitte November spielten die 49ers noch eine perfekte Saison, zwei Thriller-Niederlagen gegen Seattle und die Ravens haben San Francisco aber in eine ganz gefährliche Situation gebracht. Gewinnen die Seahawks (9-2) das Monday Night Game gegen die Minnesota Vikings, würden die 49ers in der NFC West auf Platz zwei und in der gesamten NFC auf Platz fünf abrutschen. (NFL: Seattle Seahawks - Minnesota Vikings am Dienstag ab 2.15 Uhr in den LIVESCORES)

Außerdem warten mit den Saints, Rams und Seahawks noch drei ganz dicke Brocken, zwei davon obendrein auswärts.

NFC NORTH - GREEN BAY PACKERS (9-3):

Die Packers haben in der NFC North zwar genauso viele Niederlagen kassiert wie die Minnesota Vikings, diese sind aber im Monday Night Game bei den Seahawks gefordert. Da die Packers das erste direkte Duell mit den Vikings gewonnen haben (21:16), spricht auch dieser Fakt für Green Bay - am 16. Spieltag treffen die beiden Teams erneut aufeinander und spielen dann wohl den Division-Sieger untereinander aus.

NFC EAST - DALLAS COWBOYS (6-6):

In der qualitativ schwachen NFC East reicht den Cowboys im Moment bereits eine ausgeglichene Bilanz, um die Führung und damit einen Platz in den Playoffs innezuhaben.

Die Philadelphia Eagles (5-7) haben nach drei Niederlagen in Folge nur noch eine realistische Chance auf den Division-Sieg, wenn sie das direkte Duell mit den Cowboys in drei Wochen für sich entscheiden. Kurios: Dallas hat in dieser Saison noch kein Spiel gegen ein Team mit einer positiven Bilanz gewonnen.

GUTE PLAYOFF-CHANCEN:

SEATTLE SEAHAWKS (9-2):

Zurzeit liegen die Seahawks lediglich auf Platz fünf der NFC, allerdings ist das letzte Wort noch längst nicht gesprochen. Ein Sieg gegen die Vikings im Monday Night Game würde Seattle an San Francisco vorbei an die Spitze der NFC West befördern und sie damit auch am Conference-Sieg schnuppern lassen.

Das direkte Duell mit den 49ers am letzten Spieltag dürfte den Sieger in der NFC West bestimmen - und womöglich auch den Heimvorteil für die gesamten Playoffs entscheiden.

BUFFALO BILLS (9-3):

Die Bills haben sich dank des 26:15-Sieges gegen die Cowboys in eine ausgezeichnete Position gebracht, um zumindest einen Platz im Wildcard Game zu erreichen. Die Chance auf den Playoff-Einzug liegt laut FPI bei 96,6 Prozent, bereits ein weiterer Sieg würde die beste Bills-Bilanz seit 1999 garantieren. Um die AFC East zu gewinnen, müssen die Bills auf Patzer der Patriots (10-2) hoffen - vielleicht ja im direkten Duell am vorletzten Spieltag.

AKTUELL NOCH IN DEN PLAYOFFS:

PITTSBURGH STEELERS (7-5):

Der Division-Sieg in der AFC North geht nur über die Ravens, die Steelers können dank sechs Siegen aus den letzten sieben Spielen aber auf das letzte Wildcard-Ticket in der AFC hoffen.

Im Vergleich mit den Tennessee Titans (7-5) spricht aktuell die bessere Conference-Bilanz für Pittsburgh, laut FPI liegt die Chance auf den Playoff-Einzug bei den Steelers (42,5 Prozent) minimal höher als bei den Titans (38,6 Prozent). Allerdings spielt Pittsburgh noch gegen die Bills und bei den Ravens.

MINNESOTA VIKINGS (8-3):

Zwar liegen die Playoff-Chancen der Vikings laut FPI bei 94,1 Prozent, allerdings droht im Monday Night Game in Seattle eine womöglich entscheidende Niederlage. Siegen die Vikings jedoch und gewinnen auch das direkte Duell gegen die Packers (9-3) in drei Wochen, ist sogar der Division-Sieg möglich. Von hinten droht noch Konkurrenz von den Los Angeles Rams (7-5).

DÜRFEN NOCH AUF DIE PLAYOFFS HOFFEN:

In der AFC hoffen vor allem die Tennessee Titans (7-5) noch, die Steelers vom letzten Wildcard-Platz zu verdrängen. Die Oakland Raiders, Indianapolis Colts (je 6-6) und Cleveland Browns (5-7) haben Außenseiterchancen.

In der NFC sind die Rams (7-5) den Vikings auf den Fersen, die Philadelphia Eagles (5-7) haben wohl nur noch eine Chance, wenn sie sich in der Division noch an den Cowboys vorbeischieben. Leise Hoffnungen können sich womöglich noch die Chicago Bears (6-6) machen, für die Tampa Bay Buccaneers (5-7) und die Carolina Panthers (5-7) wird es wohl nicht mehr reichen.

Der Playoff-Stand in der NFL im Überblick:

AFC
1. Baltimore Ravens (10-2)

Trump Got His Wall, After All

 Cache   

IN THE TWO YEARS AND 308 DAYS THAT DONALD Trump has been president, he has constructed zero miles of wall along the southern border of the United States. He has, to be fair, replaced or reinforced 76 miles of existing fence and signed it with a sharpie. A private group has also built a barrier less than a mile long with some help from Steve Bannon and money raised on GoFundMe. But along the 2,000 miles from Texas to California, there is no blockade of unscalable steel slats in heat-retaining matte black, no electrified spikes, no moat and no crocodiles. The animating force of Trump’s entire presidency—the idea that radiated a warning of dangerous bigotry to his opponents and a promise of unapologetic nativism to his supporters—will never be built in the way he imagined.

And it doesn’t matter. In the two years and 308 days that Donald Trump has been president, his administration has constructed far more effective barriers to immigration. No new laws have actually been passed. This transformation has mostly come about through subtle administrative shifts—a phrase that vanishes from an internal manual, a form that gets longer, an unannounced revision to a website, a memo, a footnote in a memo. Among immigration lawyers, the cumulative effect of these procedural changes is known as the invisible wall.

In the two years after Trump took office, denials for H1Bs, the most common form of visa for skilled workers, more than doubled. In the same period, wait times for citizenship also doubled, while average processing times for all kinds of visas jumped by 46 percent, even as the quantity of applications went down. In 2018, the United States added just 200,000 immigrants to the population, a startling 70 percent less than the year before.

Before Trump was elected, there was virtually no support within either party for policies that make it harder for foreigners to come here legally. For decades, the Republican consensus has favored tough border security along with high levels of legal immigration. The party’s small restrictionist wing protested from the margins, but it was no match for a pro-immigration coalition encompassing business interests, unions and minority groups. In 2013, then-Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions introduced an amendment that would have lowered the number of people who qualified for green cards and work visas. It got a single vote in committee—his own. As a former senior official at the Department of Homeland Security observed, “If you told me these guys would be able to change the way the U.S. does immigration in two years, I would have laughed.”

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP REVIEWS PROTOTYPES FOR HIS “IMPENETRABLE, POWERFUL, BEAUTIFUL” WALL. (AP/EVAN VUCCI)

Senior adviser Stephen Miller is usually regarded as the White House’s immigration mastermind, but his maneuvering is only a sliver of the story. The most fine-grained and consequential changes would never have been possible without a group of like-minded figures stationed in relevant parts of the government—particularly the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service, the agency within DHS that administers visas. Early in Trump’s presidency, said the former DHS official, there was a “strategic sprinkling” of people who “shared a common vision and were ready to outwork everybody.” They included Gene Hamilton, Miller’s “terrible sword at DHS” (his actual title was senior counselor to the secretary), and Francis Cissna, the soft-spoken former head of USCIS whom colleagues describe as “an encyclopaedia of immigration law” and “a total immigration nerd.” “If you said to him, what’s on page 468, second paragraph” of the Immigration and Nationality Act, another former DHS official marveled, “he would quote it to you.”

Amidst the chaos at DHS, the restrictionists have already radically scaled back America’s asylum and refugee programs for years to come. But no category of immigrant ( 1 ) The major avenues for legal immigration are via family (including marriage), employment and humanitarian programs for refugees and asylum seekers.has escaped the uptick of denials and delays—not the Palestinian student with a Harvard scholarship who was deported upon landing in Boston, or the Australian business owner forced to leave after building a life here. Not the Bolshoi Ballet stars who somehow failed to meet the criteria of accomplished artists, or the Iraqi translators who risked their lives for the U.S. military and whose annual admissions went from 325 to just two after the change in administration. Then there are the consequences that are harder to capture in headlines or statistics: the couples whose marriages broke down when the foreign spouse was forced to wait far longer than usual in their home country, and the unknown number of people who have abandoned the attempt to stay because of financial hardship or the strain of living with a level of uncertainty that becomes untenable.

“What became clear to me early on was that these guys wanted to shut down every avenue to get into the U.S.,” the first former senior DHS official said. “They wanted to reduce the number of people who could get in under any category: illegals, legals, refugees, asylum seekers—everything. And they wanted to reduce the number of foreigners already here through any means possible.” No government in modern memory has been this dedicated to limiting every form of immigration to the United States. To find one that was, you have to go a long way back, to 1924.

GERMAN-JEWISH REFUGEES ABOARD THE MS ST. LOUIS, WHICH WAS TURNED AWAY FROM THE UNITED STATES AND CUBA IN 1939.(BETTMANN VIA GETTY)

“ANATION OF IMMIGRANTS”—THESE FOUR WORDS, ( 2 ) The phrase was popularized by John F. Kennedy, who used it as the title of his 1958 book.genius in their concision, mask the messiest of histories. People like to recall that George Washington wanted America to “be an Asylum to the persecuted of the earth.” Less often praised: Ben Franklin’s contention that immigrants are “the most ignorant Stupid Sort of their own Nation.” Americans have been having some version of this argument ever since. And for much of the country’s existence, public opinion towards immigration has ranged from tepid to hostile. As Daniel Tichenor, author of the comprehensive history, “Dividing Lines,” puts it, “We love the immigrant past and dread the immigrant present.”

One rare exception came after the Civil War, when the country was desperate to replace the men who had died on the battlefield. A flourishing postwar confidence revived the idea that the country could absorb a never-ending stream of foreigners and fuse their best characteristics into that superior being, an American.

The turn began in the 1880s. Extremes of wealth had sparked massive labor strikes; out West, people fretted that the land was running out. Now, newcomers were a threat, and the more foreign they seemed, the more threatening they were. An early warning was the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882, the first-ever prohibition of all people of a specific race. Over the next decade, a surge of European migrants accounted for 40 percent of population growth. From the 1890s, this wave was dominated not by English, Scandanavians, Germans or Irish, but by poorer southern and eastern Europeans and Russian Jews. As the country slid into a long depression, the new immigrants became the source and the target of a tinderbox anxiety. There were lynchings of Italians in New Orleans; attacks on Jewish farmers by Mississippi nightriders; a riot against Russian Jewish factory workers in New Jersey.

For decades, nativists in Congress tried and failed to translate this hostility into new immigration laws. It wasn’t until the early 1920s, after Warren Harding was elected president on an “America First” platform, that two Republican lawmakers, Representative Albert Johnson and Senator David Reed, finally realized a restrictionist dream: a comprehensive racial quota system devised to keep American bloodlines pure. “[T]he country would never be the same,” wrote John Higham in his definitive account of American nativism, “Strangers in the Land”—“either in its social structure or in its habits of mind.”

To build the public case for their legislation, Johnson and Reed teamed up with the leading eugenicists of the day. Johnson enlisted Harry Laughlin, who in 1936 received an honorary degree from a German university for his contributions to the “science of racial cleansing,” to conduct research for the House Immigration Committee. Johnson also worked closely with Madison Grant, whose manifesto, “The Passing of the Great Race,” is a deranged codification of white men into three “races” of descending desirability—Nordics, Alpines and Mediterraneans. Grant’s conclusion, drawn from spurious analyses of skull shape and nose width, was that the new immigrants should be scientifically excluded from the definition of whiteness. They were “human flotsam … breeding out their masters and killing by filth and by crowding as effectively as by the sword.”

In 1924, President Calvin Coolidge signed the Johnson-Reed Act, which accorded with his own belief that that “America must be kept American.” The law would ultimately shut down most immigration except for a meager inflow dominated by people Madison Grant would have called Nordics. Everyone else faced waitlists of 10 to 75 years, depending on the quota allotted to their country of origin. The law also birthed a national immigration bureaucracy—what Tichenor calls “an increasingly elaborate immigration control system of racist design.”

Until this point, nearly everyone who arrived at a port of entry like Ellis Island was admitted to the United States. There was no requirement for a visa. Johnson-Reed was deliberately engineered to prevent most immigrants from ever boarding a steamship, by requiring them to obtain visas from U.S. consulates abroad. The State Department, which ran the consulates, was notoriously anti-Semitic: In 1921, the chief of the Consular Service supplied a report to Congress describing Jewish people as “filthy, un-American, and often dangerous in their habits.” By the 1930s, as Hitler launched his assault on the Jews of Europe, the new visa system was perfectly calibrated not to help the growing ranks of refugees, but to keep them out.

In 1934, President Franklin Roosevelt ordered consulates to give Jewish refugees “the most humane and favorable treatment possible under law.” After that, admissions actually went down. Mere presidential preference was no match for the immigration bureaucracy, which erected, in the words of historian David Wyman, a formidable “paper wall.”

The paper wall’s architect was Samuel Miller Breckinridge Long—Breckinridge Long to the public. Thin and rangy, intermittently beset by nervous ailments, Long was born to a family that was practically Confederate aristocracy. He’d glided through Princeton, married into money and spent a good deal of his career as a bureaucrat of middling talents. Thanks to his old pal “Frank” Roosevelt, in 1939 he was put in charge of refugee admissions, though he had no relevant experience. From then on, Roosevelt essentially abdicated refugee policy to Long because he was so spooked by the politics: In 1938, the year of Kristallnacht, 86 percent of Americans opposed an emergency increase of refugee admissions.

BRECKINRIDGE LONG (MYRON DAVIS/THE LIFE PICTURE COLLECTION VIA GETTY)

From the nativists' perspective, Long was the best possible man for the moment. He believed the overwhelming majority of refugees were propagandists, subversives, freeloaders and derelicts. And he knew exactly how to protect his country from the “alien influx”—with the merciless application of rules, regulations, procedures and forms.

In 1940, Long issued a memo instructing subordinates to avoid granting visas to European refugees for a “temporary period of indefinite length.” From today's vantage point, his methods are eerily familiar. “We could do this by simply advising our consuls to put every obstacle in the way and to require additional evidence and resort to various administrative devices which would postpone and postpone and postpone the granting of the visas,” he explained. Later, he would crow in his diary: “The cables practically stopping immigration went!”

Consular officials had enormous latitude in determining a refugee’s fate. In France, you had to obtain an exit visa, a transit visa, an entry visa for the U.S., moral and political affidavits of support, certificates of good behavior and a paid ticket for the ship. You couldn’t get a visa without a ticket, which were sold out months in advance, and you couldn’t get a ticket without a visa, which were only valid for four months, and if just one of your documents had expired on the day of departure, you had to start all over again.

“IT TAKES MONTHS AND MONTHS TO GRANT THE VISAS AND THEN IT USUALLY APPLIES TO A CORPSE.”

One of the most powerful tools employed by visa officials was the public charge rule—a component of federal law which states that a person can’t be admitted to the United States if they are likely to become a burden on the state. Although the rule had been on the books since 1882, it was barely observed until the Depression. Under Long, consulates wielded it with abandon. To Jewish refugees of Nazi Germany, the rule must have seemed like a sadistic joke, since throughout the 1930s they had been forced to relinquish up to 90 percent of their capital when they left the country. Even if they were lucky enough to have American financial sponsors, the standards of proof were constantly shifting. As a result, there were multiple years after Hitler seized power in which the U.S. did not fill its annual quota of just under 30,000 immigrants from Germany. In 1938, for example, the State Department admitted 19,552 former residents of the Third Reich, not all of whom were Jewish.

And yet Breckinridge Long wasn’t satisfied. Convinced Germany was infiltrating America with spies disguised as refugees, he created, for the first time, a centralized immigration processing system based in Washington. Applicants submitted letters of support, financial records and character testimonies. Sponsors were scrutinized. Five committees from different agencies reviewed every application. After that, the flow of refugees nearly stopped altogether. In a speech, Representative Emanuel Cellar blamed Long for the “gruesome bottleneck.” He observed: “It takes months and months to grant the visas and then it usually applies to a corpse.”

A MEETING OF THE WAR REFUGEE BOARD IN 1944. SECRETARY OF THE TREASURY HENRY MORGENTHAU, JR., IS IN THE CENTER. (FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT LIBRARY)

In January 1944, Treasury Secretary Robert Morgenthau demanded a meeting with Roosevelt and Long to discuss the situation. He came armed with an investigative memo, which he titled “Report to the Secretary on the Acquiescence of This Government in the Murder of the Jews.” It documented Long’s machinations in devastating detail. Roosevelt immediately agreed to create a War Refugee Board outside Long’s control. Its work during the remainder of the war demonstrated just how many more lives could have been saved: According to Wyman, it managed to rescued around 200,000 people in 18 months.

Long fumed at his demotion, raging to his diary that he had been “thrown to the wolves.” One of his great regrets was that he no longer enjoyed the favor of his old friend Frank. The loss of status gnawed at him. He retired by the end of 1944, and after writing a memoir that failed to find a publisher, mostly concentrated on breeding race horses, which usually lost. To the end of his life, according to his biographer, Neil Rolde, he never acknowledged, or apparently even realized, the magnitude of what he had done.

And yet even after the horrors of the Nazi regime were fully revealed, Johnson-Reed wasn’t overturned for another two decades. The law that replaced it, the Hart-Cellar Act of 1965, is often celebrated as the moment that America opened its doors to the world. At the time, though, its authors had more modest goals. Shamed into action by the civil rights movement, they planned to abolish the racial quotas and create a merit system allowing for limited immigration from outside of Europe.

It was only a last-minute nativist intervention that turned the law into something very different. An antsy Democratic congressman named Michael Feighan secured a provision allowing people to qualify through family ties as well—reasoning that since most immigrants were white, it would protect the racial status quo. “The bill that we sign today is not a revolutionary bill,” President Lyndon Johnson promised. “It will not upset the ethnic mix of our society,” Senator Ted Kennedy agreed.

Instead, the law changed the composition of America by accident. Among other things, Feighan completely failed to consider that people from non-European countries would qualify under the merit system and then sponsor their relatives, the process restrictionists term “chain migration.” ( 3 ) “Congress was saying … 'We need to open the door for some more British doctors, some more German engineers,’” sociologist Stephen Klineberg told NPR. “It never occurred to anyone, literally, that there were going to be African doctors, Indian engineers, Chinese computer programmers who’d be able, for the first time in the 20th century, to immigrate to America.”The foreign-born population grew from 9.6 million in 1965 to 45 million in 2015, with 90 percent of those new arrivals coming from outside Europe—mostly from Asia, Africa, and Latin America. The United States became, wrote historian Aristide Zolberg, “the first nation to mirror humanity.” To restrictionists, the 1965 reforms are the original sin, the moment when America betrayed its workers, sacrificed a mythic social cohesion and placed the country’s heritage and its future at mortal risk. And ever since, reversing those reforms has been their overriding goal.

NEW CITIZENS IN LOS ANGELES ON SEPTEMBER 13, 1995.(GILLES MINGASSON/GETTY)

BACK WHEN JEFF SESSIONS WAS A U.S. SENATOR, HE routinely selected a few staffers to join him in his office for a seminar-style discussion of whatever happened to be on his mind that day. Increasingly over the years, the subject was immigration. These conversations could last for hours. Some staffers surreptitiously tried to work on their phones while the senator dialed up an academic or wended his way through an idea as if preparing to argue a case before a jury. But Sessions’ communications director, Stephen Miller, was invigorated by the intellectual exchange. “They kind of fed off each other,” said one regular attendee. Late in the day, Sessions often took Miller along to his hideaway—the unmarked nook each senator has near the chamber. There, Sessions would decant that day’s conversation into a speech written on a legal pad and deliver it on the floor. “I don’t know how many people listened,” a former staffer said.

Miller, though, was paying close attention. He’d been railing against immigrants since his high school days as a minor conservative talk radio celebrity in Santa Monica, but his vitriol tended towards the generic—immigrants shouldn’t speak Spanish; their communities were incubators for terrorism and crime. By contrast, Sessions’ desire to curb immigration was part of a wider set of concerns about Americans who had been shut out of the modern economy, underpinned by a cohesive historical argument. On numerous occasions, he praised Johnson-Reed, ignoring its explicitly racist motivations and painting it simply as an effort by Coolidge to raise wages, as well as the sole engine of America’s postwar prosperity.

THEN-SENATOR JEFF SESSIONS AND HIS COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR, STEPHEN MILLER, IN JANUARY 2014 (ANDREW HARNIK/THE WASHINGTON TIMES)

Similar historical references were cropping up in Miller’s private emails, too. In a series of messages from 2015 obtained by the Southern Poverty Law Center, Miller pinged Breitbart reporter Katie McHugh with ideas for stories celebrating “the heritage established by Calvin Coolidge” and lamenting the damage done by the 1965 legislation. The culmination of the Miller-Sessions mindmeld was a 25-page primer hand-delivered to every Republican congressional office that year. Written by Miller, it lauded the 1924 reforms for ushering in “a sustained slowdown that allowed wages to rise, assimilation to occur, and the middle class to emerge.” It would become a foundational document for the Trump campaign’s immigration platform.

The day after Trump’s election victory, Gene Hamilton started assembling a team to develop an immigration roadmap for the transition and beyond. Hamliton, then a legal adviser to Sessions in his thirties, relied heavily on staffers for Sessions and Senator Chuck Grassley, whose offices had for years been a lonely beacon for restrictionist groups like the Federation for American Immigration Reform, or FAIR; the Center for Immigration Studies and NumbersUSA. From the outset, according to “Border Wars,” by Julie Hirschfeld Davis and Michael Shear, Hamilton’s small braintrust knew they had to fight on two fronts—against liberal-minded career staffers and mainstream Republican appointees wedded to the status quo.

Hamilton himself had a deep knowledge of DHS ( 4 ) Before working for Sessions, Hamilton had spent two years working for various DHS offices, and also interned at Immigration and Customs Enforcement while in law school.and a knack for the inside game, both of which became valuable assets when he joined the department. “He would take the pen on a lot of things,” the former DHS official said—meaning he’d assume responsibility for writing a document, giving him the power to set the terms of the debate and the process. “He was sort of the political commissar,” another former senior DHS official explained. “You had to work with him to make sure you weren’t going to get your legs chopped out underneath you.”

For USCIS director, Hamilton recommended Cissna, a DHS lawyer who’d spent the past two years detailed to Grassley’s office. “Our family is literally a product of our nation’s legal immigration system,” Cissna said at his confirmation hearing, explaining that his grandparents were Peruvian, his wife’s family was Middle Eastern and that he only spoke Spanish to his kids at home. Although he largely shared Miller’s policy goals, his position on immigration “wasn’t a race thing,” the second former DHS senior official told me. Instead, the official said, Cissna saw himself as a “steward of the law,” which he believed should be enforced according to the narrowest interpretation. Quiet and not overtly political, he was nonetheless a canny operator. When he took over at USCIS, “he knew which small things could change to have a big effect,” said Mark Krikorian, the executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies. “He couldn’t be bamboozled by bureaucrats. He knew their job in a way a lot of political appointees don’t.”

FRANCIS CISSNA. (WIN MCNAMEE/GETTY)

Kathy Nuebel Kovarik, a veteran Grassley staffer, was put in charge of the USCIS policy office a couple of weeks after her former boss recommended her to Trump via tweet. (“@POTUS If u want a real expert on fixing H1B a former staffer of mine just moved to HomelandSecurity Call my office I will tell WHO SHE IS.”) She brought in Robert Law, FAIR’s governmental relations director, as her senior adviser. Law was smart but rigid. “You couldn’t convince him of anything he didn’t already believe,” said a person who worked with him at USCIS. Along with other alumni of restrictionist groups, ( 5 ) Julie Kirchner, a former FAIR executive director, became USCIS ombudsman, and Jon Feere, a former CIS analyst, became a senior adviser at ICE.Law became a resource for some DHS officials who lacked an immigration background but found the issue consuming their jobs. “They could tell you, this is the law, this is the history of it. It was fascinating,” said one. “They had been following this for decades.”

At first, things didn’t move as nearly quickly as Miller and Hamilton wanted, mostly because of Trump’s first DHS Secretary, John Kelly. “He was a difficult guy for people to mess with. Even Stephen Miller,” recalled the former DHS official. It wasn’t until Kelly became White House chief of staff in July 2017, another former official explained, that Miller was able to “consolidate his strength.”

A couple of months later, a meeting was convened at the department, with the acting secretary, Elaine Duke, the most senior figure present. According to a person who was there, Hamilton abruptly took control of the gathering, cutting Duke out of the conversation completely. “Everyone was looking at each other. We’d never seen anything like this—a guy with no standing [taking over the meeting].”

Hamilton informed the group they needed to produce memos outlining how to enact 10 White House policy priorities, including how to get rid of a 20-day limit on holding children in detention and how to use family separation to discourage migration. He wanted the memos within days.

The DHS policy office started work according to normal operating procedure—gathering information and assessing the legality and merits of the proposals. Normally, this would take months. “It drove the White House crazy,” said the former DHS official. “Duke’s chief of staff kept asking, ‘Dude, where are the memos?’ He was getting pounded by the White House.” Many of the memos were never produced, the official added, because “some of the [ideas] were so clearly bad.” (Hamilton didn’t respond to a request for comment.)

GENE HAMILTON “WAS SORT OF THE POLITICAL COMMISSAR,” A FORMER OFFICIAL SAID. “YOU HAD TO WORK WITH HIM TO MAKE SURE YOU WEREN’T GOING TO GET YOUR LEGS CHOPPED OUT UNDERNEATH YOU.”

At USCIS, the pressure to scrap old policies and roll out new ones was relentless. In theory, the chief counsel’s office was supposed to conduct thorough legal analyses of all new initiatives. Sometimes the office was cut out of the loop; sometimes lawyers were informed of a new memo the day before it dropped, requiring them to scramble till midnight or later to ensure it met basic legal standards. Comment skirmishes broke out within draft documents, with career staff inserting concerns and political appointees stripping them out. The political appointees “really didn’t care about the operational impact of different policies or litigation concerns,” recalled a former agency lawyer. Hamilton himself has essentially confirmed this. “That sounds like the craziest policy you could ever have,” he said in a deposition when asked if DHS had assessed the litigation risk of ending Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA. “You could never do anything if you were always worried about being sued.”

Kovarik and Law also pushed staffers to dig up evidence for their preferred policies, even when the facts didn’t oblige. For instance, they insisted on advancing the termination of temporary protected status ( 6 ) A temporary status provided to nationals of certain countries experiencing problems that make it difficult or unsafe to return there.for several “shithole countries”—the president’s term—even when experts at State and USCIS recommended extensions. The problem with the official analysis for Haiti, Kovarik explained to a career staffer in an October 2017 email, “is that it reads as though we’d recommend an extension because we talk so much about how bad it is.” The staffer replied, carefully, "We can comb through the country conditions to try to see what else there might be, but the basic problem is that it IS bad there.” Later that month, Law assigned an “important research project” to a low-level employee. “I need positive data on the current status of Haiti to bolster the recommendation to terminate TPS. Improvements or the like that I can plug in,” he wrote. “Be creative.”

In a separate exchange, Cissna complained that staffers hadn’t done a very elegant job of massaging the facts in order to end TPS status for Sudan. "The memo reads like one person who strongly supports extending TPS for Sudan wrote everything up to the recommendation section and then someone who opposes extension snuck up behind the first guy, clubbed him over the head, pushed his senseless body of out of the way, and finished the memo,” he wrote.

Even though USCIS had announced plans to kill DACA and end TPS for six countries, the political appointees were being bombarded by Miller to go faster. One of his obsessions was a regulation for a far tougher version of the public charge rule, which had to go through a mandatory administrative process. In June 2018 emails obtained by Politico, Miller berated Cissna for the “unacceptable” timeframe, writing, “I don't care what you need to do to finish it on time.” Cissna stuck to his principles. “He believed,” said the former DHS official, that “this could all get done through the rule of law.”

OVER AND OVER, IN PUBLIC AND TO HIS STAFF WITHIN USCIS’s boxy beige headquarters on Massachusetts Avenue, Cissna insisted that his mission was simply to enforce the law as it was written. At an event last year, he brought along his copy of the Immigration and Nationality Act, a brick of a book stuffed with yellow post-it notes, and patted it almost affectionately. “Everything we do at the agency should be guided by that, not by, you know, any other thing,” he said in his halting manner. “That’s our Bible.”

It was an effective claim, and a disingenuous one. So much of America’s immigration code is open to interpretation. There’s no objective test for whether a concert violinist meets the legal standard of “exceptional;” whether a full-stack Java developer is a “specialized” occupation; whether a certain type of kidney condition technically qualifies as a “hardship.” Many decisions inevitably come down to the judgement of individuals, which means they’re susceptible to the peculiar psychology of the immigration bureaucracy.

“In my own office, I am queen,” one former visa adjudicator told me. What she meant was that the guy down the hallway might require a lot more evidence than she did, or interpret the legal criteria more stringently, and that it wouldn’t be remotely strange if they each reviewed the same case and reached opposite conclusions. Within processing offices, “people get reputations,” she said. There are the officers inclined to give applicants the benefit of the doubt and those hunting for a reason to deny. Many aren’t ideological at all, but are swayed by the preferences of their supervisors. “Everyone learns to write for the teacher,” one officer observed.

All this variability gives each USCIS office a distinct culture. It’s why lawyers regard the Vermont processing center as reasonably fair and efficient and the one in California as more of a crapshoot. You can sense these distinctions as an immigrant, even if you don’t understand them. You file one application and it goes through smoothly; then a subsequent one gets snagged on some unseen impediment. A new boss, maybe, or a big immigration controversy, or some directive that causes the culture within the agency to change.

A few months after Cissna was confirmed, in February 2018, he removed the phrase “nation of immigrants” from USCIS’s mission statement. Less noticed but more significant was his decision to strip references to “customer service” from internal manuals. Staffers knew exactly what this meant. USCIS started referring to applicants as “customers” during the Obama administration, and the change was detested by more skeptical employees, who preferred terms like “foreign nationals” or “aliens.” León Rodriguez, the agency’s director from 2014 to 2017, explained that the deletion of the word “customer” could reshape every aspect of an officer’s work: “It’s a statement that your performance will not be judged based on how you treat the people with whom you’re interacting. Your courtesy, transparency, care in explaining things, compassion. Over time that changes what people prioritize.”

“THE STATISTICS FOR VISA APPROVALS AND DENIALS FOR THE LAST DECADE WERE RELATIVELY CONSISTENT,” SPAULDING SAID. “THEN ABOUT TWO YEARS AGO, ALL HELL BROKE LOOSE.”

The new priority was visa fraud. There had long been a subset of staffers, including upper-level employees, who were convinced that most immigrants were trying to cheat the system in some way. They were mostly kept at bay because the agency’s own statistics showed consistently low levels of fraud. Under Cissna, that all changed. “There was a sense of urgency across the agency that was palpable,” said Spaulding, who worked as an investigator for the fraud unit in Philadelphia from 2006 until 2019. He described the new mandate as: “Your job as adjudicator is to ferret out fraud. Good adjudicators find fraud. Bad ones don’t.” Adjudicators were also trained in more adversarial styles of interviewing, Spaulding said, “like a Customs and Border Protection officer.” (USCIS spokesperson Matthew Bourke said adjudicators regularly receive training to detect fraud but are not instructed to be adversarial.) Across the agency, there was a pronounced shift to what Rodriguez called a “law enforcement model—the sort of culture change very much driven from the top.”
Meanwhile, the political appointees under Cissna were churning out memos announcing administrative changes to visa processing that were devastating in their banality. “If you go through the statistics [for visa approvals] for the last decade, they were relatively consistent,” Spaulding said. “Then about two years ago, all hell broke loose.”

The first memo, issued in October 2017, eliminated something called “prior deference.” Previously, if a person had been greenlit multiple times for certain visas, the adjudications officer would check the circumstances that had changed since the last one. Now, every petition has to be reviewed as if the person was a first-time applicant—a vastly more time-consuming exercise. A former USCIS lawyer told me the memo was very much motivated by the new emphasis on fraud: Excavating old applications provided an opportunity to “get that gotcha moment.” Publicly, though, the agency couldn’t cite that as the justification, “because the stats didn’t back it up. So we had to say something else.”

The administration, Miller included, often insisted that its policies weren’t anti-immigrant, that it wanted to prioritize high-skilled workers over family-based migrants. And yet the changes coming out of USCIS seemed designed to make it difficult for those workers to come to the United States, too. Denials for first-time H1B applicants, who need a bachelor’s degree, jumped from 6 percent in the 2015 financial year to 32 percent in the first quarter of 2019. And even those numbers don’t tell the full story. An H1B visa typically lasts three years, but lawyers report a pattern of approvals for durations so short they are effectively useless—a week or even a day. In a hearing in D.C. district court, the judge asked the lawyer representing USCIS whether a one-day approval was “as good as a denial.” The government’s lawyer admitted: “There's little practical difference, I would agree with that.”

EVERY USCIS OFFICE HAS ITS OWN DISTINCT CULTURE. (JOHN MOORE/GETTY)

For immigrants trying to navigate the rapidly changing rules, everything just kept getting harder. The length of most forms has doubled or tripled or worse. Fees are going up for many visas. Under a new policy of mandatory in-person interviews for employment green cards, the average processing time has gone from around 10 months to more than two years in multiple cities. Yet another memo enabled the government to reject applications without giving the person a chance to correct errors, even incredibly trivial ones. ProPublica found a case that was rejected “because the seventh page, usually left blank, was not attached.” Another was denied “because it did not have a table of contents.” (USCIS has since said it does not intend to reject petitions for “innocent mistakes.”) Meanwhile, the agency has barricaded itself from communication. It is in the process of shuttering 16 of its 23 international offices. Where lawyers could once call or email the office that was handling a case, now they spend hours on hold in a Kafkaesque game of phone tag with a national customer service center. If they miss a return call, they have to start the inquiry from the beginning.

Inside USCIS, the new restrictions and requirements created a “pattern of chaos,” Spaulding said, as adjudicators struggled to “respond to what they think their superiors want.” For instance, the agency is issuing far more RFEs, or requests for additional evidence. ( 7 ) In the first quarter of 2019, the agency issued RFEs in 60 percent of H1B cases, compared to only 20 percent in 2016.“RFEs used to be common sense under Obama—if you can show the evidence, you get approval,” said Matt Cameron, a Boston lawyer who handles both employment and asylum cases. Now, they’re used as a stalling device. Lawyers are routinely asked for basic documents they’ve already submitted. One attorney was told to prove that the client’s mechanical engineering degree was relevant to his job as a mechanical engineer. Another was instructed to provide additional evidence that her client’s marriage was genuine. “I’m like, are you high?” the lawyer said. “Two people who have adopted a child together eight years ago have a fake marriage?”

More often, though, attorneys say they simply receive the same vague, boilerplate questions for multiple clients. For an officer behind on his caseload, Spaulding explained, an RFE is “one of the best ways to buy time.” While the applicant prepares a response, the case is no longer counted as open on the officer’s docket. By the end of 2018, USCIS’s total backlog of pending cases was a record 5.7 million.

Still, Stephen Miller wasn’t satisfied. He kept pushing Cissna to rush out the public charge regulation before it had been fully vetted. When word started to spread that Cissna could be forced out, restrictionist groups told reporters his ouster would be a “colossal mistake.” But it was too late. On May 24, Cissna resigned at Trump’s request in a Miller-driven purge that also claimed DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. (Cissna didn’t respond to requests for comment.) For the past two years, one USCIS career staffer recalled, she and her demoralized colleagues kept telling themselves that “it could be worse.” Then, in June, Ken Cuccinelli was named the agency’s acting director—“and it did get worse.”

LATE THIS SUMMER, KEN CUCCINELLI INSTALLED A lumpy human-sized replica of the Statue of Liberty in USCIS headquarters, by a window overlooking Massachusetts Avenue. It was a very on-brand bit of trolling: About two weeks earlier, he had finally announced the public charge regulation at a press conference at the White House. There, Cuccinelli suggested that the famous Emma Lazarus poem affixed to the Statue of Liberty (the real one) would be more accurate if it read: “Give me your tired and your poor who can stand on their own two feet and who will not become a public charge.” The poem, he added, was about “people coming from Europe.”

Cuccinelli is a very different political animal from Cissna, one far more suited to Trumpworld. One of his conditions for accepting the job, according to a source, was that a government car ferry him every day to Washington from his home an hour and a half away in rural Nokesville, Virginia. A conservative purist with a showman’s instinct, he tweets a lot, often about Immigrations and Customs Enforcement or CBP operations that seemed to excite him more than the work of his own agency. Some of the tweets are transparently bespoke for an audience of one. In September, he posted an image of a framed photograph of Trump next to a giant stack of paper, which was a new USCIS policy changing all uses of “foreign nationals” to “aliens.”

He also shares his boss’s impatience with the slow pace of policy-making. “It seems like everybody in government defers to DOJ,” Cuccinelli told Mark Krikorian at a recent panel discussion. “I don’t operate that way. Lawyers advise and they can deal with my decision as best they can. They may not be [happy].” A former DHS official who worked with Cissna told me Cuccinelli “respected what Cissna did. But where Cissna would have to get something to 98 percent to make him feel good, I think Ken Cuccinelli is much more of a 60 or 70 percent kind of guy.”

Some DHS leaders, though, felt Cuccinelli’s Trumpian pronouncements were getting in the way of Trump’s agenda. Exhibit A was the outrage provoked by his comments on the Statue of Liberty. “There was concern at DHS that you had an extremely complicated rule, the public charge, which deserved a full policy discussion,” said one former official. “It was fettered by this discussion of the poem, which bore no relevance to the issue.” Asked whether Cuccinelli had ignited the controversy by accident or on purpose, the official paused for an uncomfortably long time and finally said, dryly, “He thinks of himself as a very talented communicator.”

Out of all the administration’s immigration reforms, the public charge rule has been the most ambitious by far. In the past, the term was defined to mean anyone who was primarily dependent on government assistance. Restrictionists pointed out that only cash benefits were counted—excluding major entitlements like food stamps, Medicaid and housing subsidies. But the new definition is aggressively broad. Most new immigrants aren’t actually eligible for welfare. But the rule grants officers vast discretion to determine whether the applicant might become a public charge at any point in the future. They would be empowered to collect reams of personal financial information and reject any applicant whose income is lower than 250 percent of the poverty line, even if that person has a financial sponsor.

In essence, the rule would create a backdoor mechanism to alter the composition of immigrants to the United States. Low-income legal immigrants tend to be nonwhite, and they also tend to come here via family-based green cards. According to an analysis by the Migration Policy Institute, the new definition would potentially exclude more than half of all family-based green card applicants. That is, 71 percent of applicants from Central America, 69 percent from Africa, 52 percent from Asia—but only 36 percent from Europe, Canada and Oceania. The regulation, said Ur Jaddou, chief counsel of USCIS during the Obama administration, “fundamentally changes who gets to use our legal immigration system by race and class without an act of Congress.” (In October, a few days before the rule was due to go into effect, it was temporarily halted by three federal judges. The government is expected to appeal.)

Cuccinelli’s other priority was asylum, one of two major humanitarian categories of legal immigration. (The other is the refugee program, for people requesting protection while in a foreign country rather than at the U.S. border.) Miller had long been incensed that around 90 percent of people pass the “credible fear” screening—the initial interview that determines whether a claim will go before an immigration judge. People explained to him in meetings that the first hurdle was set intentionally low by Congress, to ensure asylum seekers get a fair hearing, and that only a minority (28 percent) eventually succeed. But Miller was convinced the screenings were an outrageous loophole and demanded they be made more restrictive. Cissna pointed out that the agency couldn’t change the requirements without breaking the law. At one meeting, when Miller kept hounding him about it, Cissna finally erupted. “Enough. Enough. Stand down!” he shouted, according to The New York Times. Cuccinelli had none of these qualms. On his second day on the job, according to Buzzfeed, he sent the division an email scolding officers for failing to prevent “frivolous” claims.

THE “SHEER NUMBER OF BOTH SIGNIFICANT AND LESS SIGNIFICANT CHANGES IS OVERWHELMING,” SAID THE FORMER USCIS CHIEF COUNSEL. “IT WILL TAKE AN AMBITIOUS PLAN OVER A SERIES OF YEARS TO UNDO IT ALL.”

Within USCIS, asylum officers have always been a band apart. They work in a separate office from visa adjudicators and wear plain clothes, no badges. When the division was launched in the 1980s, it was something of a scandal to visa officers when it was staffed with human rights lawyers and refugee workers. Today, the asylum corps is especially resented by border patrol agents, a longtime officer said. “In their view, we’re a bunch of hippies letting in people they try to keep out.”

But there’s nothing hippie-ish about the work they do. Asylum officers go through hundreds of hours of rigorous training, learning to distinguish the person who has assumed a false identity because they’re fleeing a violent gang from the person assuming a false identity because they’re a member of that gang. Vetting an applicant can take anywhere between two and five years. “I have to make sure I’m not getting the wool pulled over my eyes by a war criminal,” the officer explained. Since Congress isn’t likely to overhaul the asylum criteria anytime soon, Cuccinelli set about changing the culture of the division itself. Under a DHS pilot program, around 60 border patrol officers are now conducting credible fear screenings. According to government data obtained by Buzzfeed, they have approved less than half of applicants so far. The agency is also hiring 500 new asylum officers, targeting people with law enforcement or military backgrounds, who, according to USCIS spokesperson Matthew Bourke, are “uniquely equipped to support the agency’s improved vetting procedures and fraud-detection efforts.” In a particularly unsubtle move, the division’s head, John Lafferty, was replaced by the director of the fraud unit.

When you put all of this together, it’s clear that the Trump administration has fundamentally altered the nature of humanitarian immigration to the United States—initiatives that are supported by both parties and have been an essential component of foreign policy since the end of World War II. In 2017, Gene Hamilton and Stephen Miller tag-teamed to reduce annual refugee admissions from 110,000 to 45,000. Since then, the number has been slashed to an all-time low of 18,000. In October, the administration started implementing a regulation ordering that asylum seekers be turned away from the southern border if they have passed through another country without seeking asylum there first. What this means, in practice, is that the only people able to seek asylum at the border are Mexican citizens.

And yet the restrictionists still aren’t satisfied. After all, the administration hasn’t come close to their goal of halving legal immigration. “Any real changes”—such as ending birthright citizenship or the visa lottery—“are the kind of thing Congress would have to approve,” said Krikorian. FAIR’s governmental relations director, RJ Hauman, told me Trump “botched” his first year with a flawed rollout of the travel ban on seven Muslim-majority countries. “It tainted everything,” he said, especially the president’s chances of getting more ambitious reforms through Congress.

SHERIFFS FROM AROUND THE COUNTRY MEET PRESIDENT TRUMP AT A FAIR EVENT IN SEPTEMBER. (WHITE HOUSE/JOYCE N. BOGHOSIAN)

In response, the administration is doing its utmost to appease its most hardcore supporters. For 13 years, FAIR has held an annual convention in Washington D.C. to connect conservative talk radio hosts and anti-immigration personalities. Under previous presidents, it was a niche affair, but this September’s event might as well have been sponsored by the Trump administration. FAIR flew in nearly 200 sheriffs, who received a briefing at the White House from Kellyanne Conway, as well as a photo op with Trump. Afterwards, they made their way back to the Phoenix Park Hotel, just around the corner from DHS. Some 70 radio hosts were crammed into a couple of conference rooms. “We’re in the heart of the swamp, up to our knees in muck,” FAIR’s communications director, Dave Ray, remarked to a talk show host named Tom Roten, who has blamed immigrants for his West Virginia county having “the highest concentration of HIV in the country, maybe even the world.” (This is not true.) Ray went on to discuss the “human carnage caused by criminal aliens and drugs;” at one point, Roten asked, “What if we cut the snake off at the head at the border?”

Cuccinelli spent an entire morning powering through eight back-to-back interviews, fueled by his usual cup of McDonalds sweet tea. He talked about family separation with Roten who complained that “the media only shows these kids crying.” Children were constantly crossing the border with different adults, pretending to be related, he stated. “You’re exactly right, Tom. They’re being recycled,” Cuccinelli agreed. (Greg Navano, ICE’s assistant director of investigative programs, said that among other methods, the agency sometimes conducts DNA tests of family units, and that around 15 percent of the tests uncovered an adult falsely claiming to be a child’s biological parent.)

In November, Cuccinelli was promoted to DHS deputy acting secretary. Kathy Nuebel Kovarik became acting deputy at USCIS and Robert Law, the former FAIR lobbyist, ascended to the head of the policy office. The agency has promised a new flurry of major policy changes before the end of the year. And in what is perhaps the purest expression of the administration's intentions so far, it started sending Central American asylum seekers to Guatemala with no access to an attorney, no review by an immigration court, far away from the border infrastructure of activists and reporters and lawyers or any form of help at all.

IT’S EASY ENOUGH TO BELIEVE THAT BECAUSE NONE of the Trump administration’s reforms are entrenched in law, they can be overturned as quickly as they were introduced. And yet even though, in theory, the policy memos can all be withdrawn, the “sheer number of both significant and less significant changes is overwhelming,” said Jaddou, the former USCIS chief counsel. “It will take an ambitious plan over a series of years to undo it all.” Formal regulations, like the third-country asylum rule and public charge rule, if it succeeds, will be especially hard to unravel.

The institutional implications run deeper. The backlog of delayed cases will likely take several years to get under control. The administration has promoted six judges with some of the highest asylum denial rates to the Justice Department’s immigration appeals court, including one who threatened to set a dog on a 2-year-old child for failing to be quiet in his courtroom. Those appointments are permanent.

The refugee program, too, will take years to rebuild. The plunge in admissions caused a plunge in funding to the nine resettlement agencies, which have closed more than 100 offices around the country since 2016. That’s a third of their capacity, according to a report by Refugees Council USA. “The whole infrastructure is deteriorating,” said Rodriguez, the former USCIS director. Because the application process is so lengthy, even if a new administration raises refugee admissions on day one, it would take as long as five years before increased numbers of people actually make it to the United States. Consider that in January 2017, the State Department briefly paused in-bound flights for refugees who had finally made it through the gauntlet of health, security and other checks. As of this summer, some of those refugees were still waiting to leave. While the flights were grounded, they missed the two-month window during which all of their documents were current. When one document expires, it can take months to replace, causing others to expire and trapping the refugee in what the report called “a domino effect of expiring validity periods.”

Even harder to repair is the culture shift within USCIS. New visa adjudicators will remain in their jobs long after the political appointees have gone—kings and queens of their own offices. Employees who were promoted for their skeptical inclinations will stay in those positions, setting priorities for subordinates. The multitude of changes at USCIS are the product of an administration that regards immigration as its political lifeblood. There’s no guarantee—or indication—that any of the potential Democratic nominees would apply the same obsessive zeal to overturning them.

Back in 1924, Johnson-Reed’s supporters never anticipated the Holocaust, and yet they expanded its horrors. We don’t know where our own future is headed, but we live in a time of metastasizing instability. Last year, the United Nations’ official tally of refugees passed 70 million, the highest since World War II. Mass migrations, whether because of violence or inequality or environmental calamity or some murky blend of factors that don't conveniently fit existing laws, are the reality and challenge of our era. There aren’t any easy solutions. But already, what started as a series of small, obscure administrative changes is resulting in unthinkable cruelty. If left to continue, it will, in every sense, redefine what it means to be American.


          

Geneva couple recalls fighting South Africa's apartheid system

 Cache   
GENEVA – Nobody knew how dangerous the relationship between Paula Merrington and her husband Gary van Breda was until she mentioned it during a candidate forum while she was running for alderman.

They met in Cape Town, South Africa. She was a white woman and he was – in the vernacular of apartheid in 1988 – a colored person.

“Apartheid was still the law of the land,” van Breda said.

Apartheid – meaning “separateness" in Afrikaans – was a system of institutionalized racial segregation.

The irony here is that van Breda himself is descended from one of the founding families of the white branch of Africaner people in South Africa. They arrived in 1719. His ancestry is a mix of black and white people that predate formal apartheid.

When van Breda and Merrington first began dating in 1991, it was illegal under the Immorality Act, which made sexual relationships between white Europeans and anyone who was not white a crime.

“We had to pretend we were not dating,” van Breda said.

“There were no public displays of affection,” Merrington said. “It was still on the law books and the police – it was hit and miss how they would respond.”

Merrington and van Breda got married on March 12, 1994 while the Prohibition of Mixed Marriages Act was still the law of the land.

But the apartheid system was coming apart, amid protests and other nations putting sanctions on South Africa.

“We got married outside, under a big, beautiful tree,” Merrington said.

They voted in the nation’s first democratic elections in April 1994 – the first in which citizens of all races were allowed to participate.

Then they moved to the U.S. to follow job opportunities and to get away from the vestiges of apartheid.

"We had lived with it and we were just tired," van Breda said.

First living in New Orleans for three years, then Seattle for nine years, then Atlanta for eight, they have now called Geneva home for the past five. Their son Shaun, 19, is a college student, and their daughter, Grace, 16, is a junior at Geneva High School.

Merrington was a Red Cross nurse and a pediatric ICU nurse, but currently works as a contractor for FONA.

Van Breda is McDonald’s director of global food safety, and is currently working on a master’s degree in food science with a concentration on pathogenic microbiology.

Their story seems to mirror a frightening past that is being resurrected with a current rise in white nationalism and racism in general.

“It doesn’t surprise me that this is happening now,” van Breda said. “Why would it have gone away?”

‘There was no crossing over’

In 1988, van Breda was studying microbiology and biochemistry at the University of Cape Town.

He and Merrington met because he needed a place to stay that was closer to campus.

“Certain areas were restricted for black, colored, Asian and white students in transportation, housing, schools, jobs and marriage and relationships in general,” van Breda said. “The off-campus housing where I was living was a part of Cape Town designated for colored people (that was) pretty far from the university. There was no crossing over."

South Africa was in a crisis in the 1980s, he said.

To put things in historical perspective: It was not uncommon for him to be on a bus, on his way to class, when it was suddenly turned around because there were tires on fire in the road or people being shot with tear gas or rubber bullets.

The violence was such that he had trouble focusing on his studies in what was a daily struggle just to go back and forth to school. So he looked for on-campus housing and saw an ad for an available room very close to the university.

“I just took a stab without really having any expectation. So I knocked on the door and Paula answered,” van Breda said. “I said, ‘Well, I really need a place to stay.’ ... I was expecting, ‘Well, we don’t have accommodation for people like you.’”

As van Breda prepared to be refused, Merrington told him, “Well, if my dog likes you, maybe we have a chance.”

Her dog Gia was a rescue mutt, a big Alsatian-mix who liked van Breda. The dog used to accompany him to class.

“I wanted a good person to share a home with,” Merrington said. “I did not care about anything else.”

'It was a police state'

Van Breda was born in South Africa, while Merrington was from Zimbabwe, born there during the civil war, from 1965 to 1980.

She left in 1980 to go to nursing school in Cape Town.

As it turned out, they were both politically active.

“The thing that really brought us together was because there was an escalation of violence in South Africa at that point. Paula and I were part of an organization that provided support for protest marches that were illegal," van Breda said.

Merrington belonged to the Health Workers Society, founded in 1980, one of several health organizations that advocated for a democratic health system in South Africa.

They put together little first-aid kits that Merrington and others used to provide medical support for those injured during apartheid protests.

“It was a police state,” Merrington said. “They had this law that you could not have … more than six people congregating at one time. … There was no free press at this time. It was a state-controlled media, television and newspapers. Journalists were put in prison all the time and they disappeared."

Because of that, details of what happened was word of mouth, oral history, she said.

Music, art, poetry and plays were used to protest apartheid, something the government could not control, Merrington said.

‘We could hear the bullets all around us’

They were friends first, but eventually – and dangerously – they became romantically involved. So there was this double danger of breaking the apartheid law and of going to protests against apartheid to provide aid to protesters.

“Gary went to hear a famous religious leader and we were waiting outside a church to go in and he got hit across the face,” Merrington said.

“They smashed my face and my nose was broken,” van Breda said.

Another time, they went to a funeral for two activists.

“Police arrived and told us to disperse ... and they just started firing with no warning,” Merrington said.

“We ran to a church and within seconds, they fired tear gas into the church. We went out … to a driveway breezeway and down the driveway, maybe 200 yards away, police were pointing guns at us,” Merrington said. “They just started firing at Gary and me.”

“We could hear the bullets all around us,” van Breda said.

An anti-apartheid march on Sept. 2, 1989 in Cape Town, was called The Purple March because police fired water cannons with purple dye on thousands of protesters with the intent of identifying them later for arrest. Merrington and van Breda were both sprayed purple.

“They said, ‘The purple shall govern,’” Merrington said. “It was a play on words: ‘The people shall govern.’ … On this particular day, a protester took control of the water cannon and he sprayed government buildings."

As they were running away, someone pulled them into St. George’s Cathedral, she said.

“Bishop Desmond Tutu was actually … grabbing people off the street and giving them clean clothes" so they would not be identified by the purple spray, and be arrested by police, Merrington said.

Considering the current times with a rise of racism and white nationalism, Merrington said, “Have we learned nothing from the last 100 years?”

“Gary and I nearly lost our lives fighting (racism). … That is why we are passionate about being out there,” Merrington said. “You see little micro-aggressions. Little things. People laughing at 'slightly' racist jokes. And we’ve lived with this threatening our lives. It’s not funny. It’s real.”

Van Breda said he did not expect racism go to away – then or now.

“The only change in our lives was that the law went away. But people with with that type of attitude toward people of color still remain,” van Breda said. “Having said that, I think that I’m pretty inspired by the new generation, as I talk to people who are my son's and my daughter’s age and younger. There is less entrenched racism.”
