Pre-Solstice Unconference 2019

 Cache   
Published on December 1, 2019 5:34 AM UTC

This unconference is a gathering of the rationalist and effective altruist communities, held the day before Bay Area Secular Solstice.

Think something like the New York megameetup: if a bunch of us are all going to be around during Solstice weekend, why not also take the excuse to hang out with each other?

We've rented Omni Commons in Oakland for a day of socializing and information-sharing.

The unconference has a light theme, to create some inspiration (but don't let it constrain you). This year's theme will be **group coordination**:

What ambitious project would you embark upon if you knew for sure that you had the support? What kinds of support can we give each other to help with those projects? What do we ourselves need in order to provide that support to each other?

Buffet style lunch and snacks will be provided. Invite friends!

Register via Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/winter-solstice-unconference-tickets-71860628073

Note: The main Solstice event itself is here – https://www.lesswrong.com/events/Fpaa7hNb8RhdLS9Jj/bay-area-winter-solstice-2019

tl;dr buy a ticket at https://bay-area-winter-solstice-2019.secretparty.io/

Gather with us in a planetarium in the Oakland hills. Huddle and sing against the encroaching cold and dark. Share warmth and light. Together we will celebrate humanity and the things that matter to us, through speeches and songs.

The Bay Area Winter Solstice is an annual gathering organized by the Bay Area rationality and EA community. Come celebrate the longest night of the year with us. We will grieve the hard times, our losses and our struggles, and we will celebrate all that we have accomplished and all that we have to hope for.

Face the cold of winter head-on, together ✨

Logistics: We will again be hosting this year’s Secular Solstice at the planetarium at the Chabot Space & Science Center.

Snacks will be provided by organizers; attendees are welcome to bring additional food to share.

Doors open at 6:30pm. The performance starts promptly at 7:00pm, and ends by 9:00pm. We have the venue available for socializing until 11:00pm.

Purchasing tickets: https://bay-area-winter-solstice-2019.secretparty.io/

Last year, Eventbrite’s waitlist system posed something of a technical obstacle to last-minute ticket transfers; this year, we've solved that problem by switching to Secretparty. It’s not that the party is a secret – it’s that this platform's features should enable ticket transfers to be fully democratized. If you can't make the event, coordinate a ticket transfer to someone else privately or via posting on the Facebook page.

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

Masked men broke into Dartford home to steal car and van

 Cache   

A gang of masked men made off with an Audi Q3 and VW Transporter van after breaking into a house and stealing keys while the occupants slept upstairs

Michelle Cooper says she was left sickened by the theft from their home in Oaklands Road, Fleet Estate, Dartford, at around 3am on Tuesday morning; while partner Hubie Thompson lost his livelihood as the van contained specialist tools for structural glazing.

CCTV of the incident

The incident follows a spate of similar thefts in north and west Kent and the couple are now warning others to be vigilant, while hoping that someone may have information that could help police track the culprits.

"We were asleep upstairs" said Michelle. "Just one of them came in but the lady down the road said five of them were outside.

"The one who broke in came into the living room, then came into the kitchen and I don't know how he knew they were there, but he just put his hand straight in the wine rack and found the keys. It was really bizarre.

"Whether that's an obvious place I don't know. He went through the handbag on the side as well."

The thieves then made off with a gun metal grey VW Transporter with a roof rack, registration LJ18 RXO, and a silver Audi Q3 S Line, registration L17 MLC.

And Michelle said it was traumatising to realise someone had been in their house while they were asleep.

"They took they Audi first and then as soon as that came off the drive they jumped in the van and drove down the road," added Michelle. "It took six minutes from when they broke in, but they were in the street half an hour before casing the road.

"It's been really upsetting - it's hard to talk about.

"My partner - his whole livelihood was in the back of that van. He's a structural glazier and does architectural buildings. He's been doing that since he was 16 and he's built up everything in the back of that van.

"We've had to change the locks because there was a spare door key with them. You don;t know if they might try their luck and come back.

"I do sometimes sleep downstairs so it's scary to think I could have been there. If I had heard the door I would have woken up."

A burglar is caught on CCTV before stealing car keys (22784979)

Kent Police confirmed they were investigating the burglary, and that officers were reviewing CCTV footage and conducting enquiries.

Last week police warned people not to leave car keys in view following a spate of burglaries around north and west Kent, in which thieves targeted high-value vehicles in Gravesend Shorne and Larkfield in November.

Anyone with information on the theft in Oaklands Road is asked to call Kent Police on 01474 366149 quoting reference 46/226178/19.

The Yield Growth Corp. Keeps Growing Like a Weed or a Mushroom -- CFN Media

 Cache   
Seattle, WA - (NewMediaWire) - November 26, 2019 - CFN Media (OTCQB: CNFN), the leading agency and financial media network dedicated to the North American cannabis industry announces publication of an article discussing The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE: BOSS) (OTCQB: BOSQF), its new products, and new distribution agreements to add to its already impressive global reach.While some companies are scratching their heads about what to make of the brutal treatment cannabis stocks have felt this year,The Yield Growth Corp. (CSE: BOSS) (OTCQB: BOSQF) seems undaunted, expanding its cannabis business while rapidly emerging as a leading public company in the mushroom space. The upstart has assembled a management team rich with branding experience earned at companies like Procter & Gamble, Johnson & Johnson, Skechers, Best Buy and M·A·C Cosmetics to build new brands employing old world therapeutics for modern-day ailments.Click here to receive an investor deck and corporate updatesA Global Hemp BrandYield Growth owns the cannabis wellness brands Urban Juve, Wright & Well and Jack n Jane. As hemp-based CBD-based beauty products make their way into the mainstream, Urban Juve, has been featured in popular publications globally, including UK Vogue, Vanity Fair UK and Elle Canada. The timing of the media exposure couldn't be better with Urban Juve products spreading across more than 8,000 retail locations in Canada, Colombia, Brazil, Greece and Cyprus.To the point of Greece, a distribution agreement with Melorganics kicked off this month, sending about 2,500 Urban Juve products to the cradle of Western civilization. Melorganics is responsible for distribution in Greece and Cyprus and with the pact freshly amended, Romania, Bulgaria and Serbia have been added to the list.Urban Juve and Melorganics have moved swiftly to now have 11 Urban Juve products registered in the European Union. With the addition of Romania, Bulgaria and Serbia, Melorganics has committed to place the first purchase order for Urban Juve products for these territories by the end of the year.Click here to receive an investor deck and corporate updatesAt this time, Urban Juve is the primary revenue driver for Yield Growth, so these new sales regions will be important to continue the steep growth trajectory the company is on. During the third quarter, revenue was $1.9 million, a big leap from about $400,000 a year earlier.Trendy Mushrooms, Magic and NotMushrooms are being called by some "the new cannabis," evoking memories of where the cannabis space was a decade ago before the so-called pot stock boom. Yield Growth has moved with a purpose in this field lately, establishing Flourish Mushroom Labs as a subsidiary and making acquisitions that stockpiled the new company with over 130 mushroom recipes for a variety of consumer goods, such as teas, soups and coffees.Flourish Labs intends to initially focus on mushroom coffee, with intentions for the first coffee mix product to be launched in the coming months. It's important to recognize that while "magic" mushrooms, those that contain the psychedelic psilocybin, are certainly part of the equation, they are a smaller part of the strategy right now. Many experts have opined that psilocybin has great potential to treat a number of difficult diseases and conditions, such as depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress disorder, but being a Schedule I drug at the federal level has severely limited clinical research to validate the anecdotal evidence.Recently, Denver and Oakland decriminalized magic mushrooms and reports are that Santa Cruz and Chicago are strongly considering changing their laws as well, perhaps signaling the start of the shift towards legal magic mushrooms much in the same way cannabis and its derivatives have been steadily legalized. Flourish will explore the psychedelic mushroom opportunity as it goes headlong into the functional mushroom space, as many of the product formulas could simply replace one type of functional mushroom with one containing psilocybin as a therapeutic.Click here to receive an investor ...

Derrick Henry’s Dominance, Ryan Tannehill’s Late Touchdown Pass, & The Titans’ Outstanding Special Teams Play, Lift Titans to Huge Road Win Over the Colts (Video)

It’s not about how you start, but about how you finish.

That simple, yet infamous saying rang true for the Tennessee Titans today, as they went on the road and picked up a massive win on the road against the Indianapolis Colts.

This game had pretty much everything.

From the special teams unit making a huge difference in this game, to Derrick Henry & Ryan Tannehill  carrying the load for the offense once again.

Let’s talk about it.

1. Derrick Henry Dominates On The Ground Once Again

Henry’s day didn’t start out so hot, in fact, it started out with a turnover on the first play of the game.

But after that, Henry completely dominated the Colts’ 9th ranked rushing defense. Henry ended the game with 26 carries for 149 yards and a touchdown, ultimately continuing the monstrous tear he’s been on since the end of the 2018 season.

I keep finding myself with some disbelief of how successful Henry has been, especially after the way the offense as a whole has performed. With a QB change, a first year OC trying to find his way, and an OL that isn’t among best, Henry has found a way to find success and sustain it during a season of changes for the Titans.

The Titans have placed their full trust in the 250 lb. running back and it’s paying off handsomely for them as they continue with their playoff hunt.

2. Special Teams Makes Big Plays to Keep Titans In The Game

If you would’ve told me that the Titans would make 2 huge plays on special teams, including one to change the tide of the game, I would’ve semi believed you.

The Titans have found some sort of magic recipe to blocking field goals this year. Whether it’s paying extra attention to the smallest of details in the film room, or simply getting good jumps at the snap, its been working all season long.

The most recent example comes from Dane Cruikshank, who blocked an Adam Vinateri FG late in the 4th quarter to give the Titans the lead in today’s game.

Again, I have no idea what it is, but boy is it working.

3. Ryan Tannehill Starts Slow, Makes Big Throw to Secure Titans Win

How much magic does Ryan Tannehill have in that right arm of his?

Tannehill threw a dime to Kalif Raymond late in the 4th, to secure a big road win for the Titans. I’ll be the first to say, Tannehill’s first half did not go well.

He held on to the ball a little too long too many times, which resulted in 5 first half sacks for the Colts, and a Titans offense looking for some sort of answers.

But once the 4th quarter arrived, and the Titans needed a big play to officially lock down a W, Tannehill dropped a dime to Kalif Raymond for a huge TD.

Stones, stones, stones.

NEXT UP: The Titans hit the road once again next week to take on the Oakland Raiders.

StLJN Saturday Video Showcase: Spotlight on Fred Frith

 Cache   


This week, let's have a look at some videos featuring guitarist Fred Frith, who's coming to St. Louis to perform in a concert presented by New Music Circle on Saturday, December 14 at Joe's Cafe. While he's in town, he also will present a free master class on Sunday, December 15 at the 14th St. Artists Collective in north St. Louis.

Fred Frith, who turned 70 this year, was born in Sussex, England and first came to wide attention in the late 1960s and early 70s as a member of the art-rock band Henry Cow. His 1974 album Guitar Solos made a splash showcasing his unusual approach to improvising, using lots of effects and deploying various found objects, including ball bearings, egg beaters, drumsticks and many more, both to strike the guitar and sometimes to "prepare" it in a manner recalling John Cage's prepared pianos.

In 1979, Frith moved to New York City, where he became part of the then-burgeoning downtown experimental music scene, which led to him forming groups such as Massacre and Skeleton Crew and eventually, collaborating with Brian Eno, Robert Wyatt, Syd Barrett, Mike Oldfield, The Residents, John Zorn, Bill Laswell, and many others.

Frith in the 1980s also began writing music for dance, film, and theater. After spending a couple of years living in Germany, he moved in 1997 to Oakland, CA to join faculty at Mills College, where he taught composition until retiring last year, all the while maintaining an active performing and recording schedule.

For his St. Louis show - his first since a duo performance with John Zorn many years ago at The Sheldon - Frith will be playing solo, and so today, we've collected some performance videos including four solo shows, starting up above with a full performance recorded in April of this year at the Torino Jazz Festival in Turin, Italy.

After the jump, there are two more solo concerts, from February 2019 in Ottensheim, Austria and June 2016 in Paris, France.

Next is a combination solo performance and Q&A session recorded in January 2013 in New York City, in which Frith plays and also talks about five of his favorite songs, followed by another older solo show from March 2007 in Mexico City.

The final video shows Frith and his West Coast trio with bassist Jason Hoopes and drummer Jordan Glenn in December 2018 at Starline Social Club in Oakland, CA.

For more about Fred Frith and his distinctive approach to guitar, check out his interview from 2013 with the website Prepared Guitar, his 2014 interview with Chicago Reader, conducted by experimental filmmaker Lori Felker, and his 2016 Q&A with HitChannel.com.

Kibbles and Picks 2019 - Week 13

 Cache   
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.

Full: Strange Connections, Dec 11

 Cache   
Three duets span global performance practices. Movement artist and storyteller Leonard Pitt and composer, performer, and instrument inventor Paul Dresher perform together for the first time since 1983, creating a new work. Sarod player Manik Khan, son of Ali Akbar Khan, is joined by tabla player Sudhakar Vaidyanathan to perform Indian classical music. And dancer Tandy Beal performs two new works accompanied by her husband, composer Jon Scoville.

In 1981, Paul Dresher and Leonard Pitt were founding members of George Coates Performance Works, with whom they toured internationally and collaborated on The Way of How (1981) and are are (1983). Pitt and Dresher share a deep involvement with the performing arts of Indonesia, having met in 1974 while studying at the Center for World Music.

Manik Khan, the youngest son of Ali Akbar Khan, started his training on the sarod at the age of thirteen. With his brother Alam, he teaches at the Ali Akbar College of Music to preserve the family’s legacy, which dates back to the court of Emperor Akbar in the sixteenth century. Sudhakar Vaidyanathan began his training in tabla under Shri Satish Tare at the age of eight, and continues to study tabla under the guidance of Pandit Swapan Chaudhuri. He has played at Davies Symphony Hall and across the Bay Area.

Tandy Beal, “a choreographer of taste and intelligence . . . with a sure sense of theater” (New York Times), began her career touring worldwide with Alwin Nikolais Dance Theatre, performing off Broadway, and appearing as a guest with Bobby McFerrin, with whom she has worked for over thirty years. In addition, Beal served as artistic director for the Moscow Circus in Japan for two years and for the Pickle Family Circus for ten years. Jon Scoville’s scores have been commissioned by Oakland Ballet, Høvik Ballet (Norway), Compagnie Hors Taxes (Paris), Ririe-Woodbury Dance Company, Armazém Companha de Teatro in Rio de Janeiro, and others. Scoville is a recipient of a California Arts Council Composer’s Fellowship and grants from the Salt Lake Arts Commission and Santa Cruz Arts Council.

Six Monsanto Roundup Cancer Trials Set for January

 Cache   
November 26, 2019
U.S. Right to Know
Carey Gillam

After several months out of the headlines, lawyers for both sides of the nationwide Roundup cancer litigation are gearing up for overlapping trials in the new year as several more cancer patients seek to blame Monsanto for their diseases.

Six trials are currently set to take place starting in January, with one in February, two in March and additional trials scheduled almost every month from April through October 2021. Thousands of additional plaintiffs still are working to get trial dates set for their claims.

The plaintiffs in the upcoming January trials include two children who were stricken by non-Hodgkin lymphoma allegedly after being repeatedly exposed to Monsanto herbicides at very young ages. Also set for January is the trial for a woman named Sharlean Gordon who has suffered several debilitating recurrences of her cancer. Another trial will present the claims of five plaintiffs who claim Monsanto’s herbicides caused their cancers.

Notably, two of the trials in January will take place in the St. Louis, Missouri area – where Monsanto was headquartered for decades before its acquisition in June 2018 by Germany’s Bayer AG. Those two trials will be the first to go before jurors in Monsanto’s home town. Gordon’s case was supposed to go to trial in the area last August but was postponed, as were others set for the second half of 2019, as Bayer and plaintiffs’ attorneys initiated settlement talks.

It is still possible that some sort of settlement – individual case-specific, or larger – could happen before January, but the lawyers on both sides are preparing for a schedule that presents numerous logistical challenges. Each trial is expected to last several weeks, and not only are some lawyers involved in trying cases with overlapping trial schedules, but a small group of expert witnesses will be testifying in multiple cases taking place at the same time.

Three trials have taken place so far  in the sprawling mass tort litigation, which began in 2015 after the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified a chemical called glyphosate as a probable human carcinogen with a particular association to non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Since the 1970s, glyphosate has been the active ingredient in Monsanto branded herbicides, and is currently considered the most widely used herbicide in the world.

Plaintiffs’ attorneys say that the current line-up of cases represent even stronger claims for damages than the prior three trials.  “These are very strong cases,” said lawyer Aimee Wagstaff, who represents Gordon. In March, Wagstaff client Edwin Hardeman won an $80 million jury verdict from a San Francisco jury in his lawsuit against Monsanto.

For the Gordon case, Wagstaff has subpoenaed former Monsanto chairman Hugh Grant to testify live at the trial. Grant has thus far only testified through deposition and not had to testify in front of a jury; nor have other high-level Monsanto executives because the trials were held in California. But with the trial in St. Louis, plaintiffs’ lawyers are hoping to get some Monsanto scientists and executives on the stand for questioning. Grant’s attorneys have objected the making him appear in person, and both sides are awaiting a ruling on that matter.

In the most recent trial to take place, a jury in Oakland, California ordered Monsanto to pay more than $2 billion in damages to Alberta and Alva Pilliod, a married couple who both suffer from NHL they blame on exposure to Roundup.  The first trial ended in August 2018 when jurors in state court in San Francisco ordered Monsanto to pay $289 million  in damages to school groundskeeper Dewayne “Lee” Johnson, who has been diagnosed with a terminal type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma.  The judges in all three of those cases ruled that the awards were excessive and reduced the damage amounts, though the verdicts are currently under appeal.

More than 42,000 people  in the United States are now suing Monsanto claiming that Roundup and other Monsanto’s herbicides cause non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The lawsuits allege that the company was well aware of the dangers for many years but did nothing to warn consumers, working instead to manipulate the scientific record to protect company sales.

Comment on 127 Years of Dallas History Uncovered as Oakland Cemetery’s Records, Once Buried, Come to Light by Michael E. Pollock

Being found a burial register for Maury Cemetery in Richmond, Virginia, that not only predates the public index by roughly 30 years, but also contains information not included in the public index, primarily graves that were not marked at the time the index was created, and also having been told by court clerks that certain records do not exist on multiple times only to come across them on my own, I wonder how often such records as these for Oakland Cemetery in Dallas are presumed to have never existed or no longer exist because they are too rarely used for their existence (and location–the records in question for Maury are NO LONGER AT MAURY) to be widely known?

4 Week 13 NFL games to watch

 Cache   

Week 13 of the NFL season showcases some crucial intra-division matchups, and a possible Super Bowl preview. Here are four games to watch:

Indianapolis Colts vs. Tennesee Titans, 1:00 p.m. E.T. on CBS — Tennessee has transformed since Ryan Tannehill took over at quarterback. The veteran is finally living up to his potential, and he's got the 6-5 Titans looking like a playoff contender. The 6-5 Colts are coming off a tough division loss to the Houston Texans, but they'll look to bounce back against their other AFC South rivals.

Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Cleveland Browns, 1:00 p.m. E.T. on CBS — These AFC North rivals played just two weeks ago, and, well, it wasn't pretty. Both teams have said the drama won't carry over from that game, and many of the players involved in the previous kerfuffle are suspended for this week's festivities. Regardless, this is a big game for two wild card contenders. Pittsburgh's defense will need to continue its stellar play, since the offense is in shambles.

Baltimore Ravens vs. San Francisco 49ers, 1:00 p.m. E.T. on Fox — This rematch of the 2013 Super Bowl, when Baltimore edged the Niners, could also be a sign of things to come. The 9-2 Ravens are probably the best team in the league right now behind their quarterback — and MVP frontrunner — Lamar Jackson, who is worth watching no matter the opponent. But San Francisco is an elite team, as well. These two could very well see each other again in February.

Kansas City Chiefs vs. Oakland Raiders, 4:25 p.m. E.T. on CBS — The 6-5 Raiders received a dose of reality last week when they were trounced by the lowly (but improving) New York Jets. Still, they only trail the AFC West-leading Chiefs by one game. It's been a sloppy season for the 7-4 Chiefs, but quarterback Patrick Mahomes is back in full gear after an injury, so there's every reason to believe they'll cement their playoff position soon enough. A win Sunday would go a long way.


          

10 things you need to know today: December 1, 2019

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]

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]

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]

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]

The State as Our Father (or Loving Mother), by Pierre Lemieux

 Cache   

Current attacks on the Food and Drug Administration for not regulating e-cigarettes enough remind us of an inconvenient truth. In the minds of public health activists and many medical experts, the state is to adult citizens what parents are to their children. This fiction has even been consecrated by a century-old legal principle.

The Wall Street Journal of yesterday (“Researchers Say FDA Has Fallen Down on E-Cigarette Testing”) reports that the current attacks against the FDA are of two sorts:

The Food and Drug Administration has come under fire for not moving quickly to address the health risks of e-cigarettes, but outside the public spotlight it is also under attack for not prioritizing study of whether those vaping products may well be an important way to reduce deaths from traditional smoking.

For some, the FDA is not regulating enough; for others, it’s regulating too much or, at least, not intelligently. The WSJ story shows the FDA as a complex bureaucracy whose right hand ignores what the left hand is doing. The contemporary student of bureaucracy, who knows that bureaucrats pursue mainly their personal interests like anybody else, will not be surprised by policy inconsistencies.

Another interesting fact is the apparent conflict, within the FDA, between some economists and a harder regulating wing. As I explained in a recent Reason Foundation paper, those economists want to incorporate consumer preferences (by way of the “consumer surplus”) in cost-benefit analyses of smoking and vaping, as required by standard economic theory, while the hard regulating wing denies any value to most consumer demand (see “Consumer Surplus in the FDA’s Tobacco Regulations, with Applications to Nicotine Reduction and E-Cigarette Flavors,” June 2019).

To simplify a bit, the hard regulators think that government should protect consumers against themselves like parents protect their children by making choices in their stead. This idea corresponds to the mainstream approach in the public health movement. What is more surprising, perhaps, is that a legal principle going back to the 19th century (in America at least, although a European influence is likely) precisely claims that, in some matters (which have expanded with time), government is the parent and its subjects are the children. Indeed, the legal doctrine has a name: parens patriae, which means “parent of the country.”

This theory is explained in a major textbook of public health law: Lawrence O. Gostin and Lindsay F. Wiley, Public Health Law: Power, Duty, Restraint, Third Edition (Oakland CA: University of California Press, 2016). A few quotes from the book are revealing:

From a constitutional perspective, there exist historic wellsprings of state authority to protect the common good: the police power to protect the public’s health, safety, and morals, and the parens patriae power to defend the interests of persons unable to secure their own interests.

In the United Sates, the parens patriae function belongs primarily to state and local governments. It is traditionally invoked in two contexts: to protect individuals who are unable to protect themselves because they are incapacitated, and to assert the state’s general interest and standing in communal health, comfort, and welfare, safeguarding collective interests that no individual, acting alone, has the capacity to vindicate.

The Supreme Court has recognized the states’ broader parens patriae capacity in the context of quarantine, sanitation, protecting the water supply, and preventing air and water pollution. In recent years, many state and city governments have acted in their parens patriae capacity in litigation against industries that produce and distribute harmful products.

The parental government must be just toward its wards. Gostin and Wiley repeat a mantra of today’s theory of public health:

The idea of social justice is a core value of public health and is foundational of public health law.

As the federal government has gradually replaced, or tried to replace, state governments as the loving mother and severe father of the country, it has extended its public health reach, recently encompassing e-cigarettes, which are legally deemed to be “tobacco products.” Creative laws!

 Cache   

In this episode, Dr. Matthew May (Oakland University) talks about his sociological research that focuses on how religion, health, work and family life intersect with each other.

How do sociologists and social scientists use survey data to give a better understanding of the role of religion in today's society? How does participation in, or doubts surrounding, organized religion influence people's wellbeing, sense of happiness or negative mental health outcomes? Does whether you practice religion affect how people feel concerning their gender roles in work and family life? Do current affairs and recent news inspire sociologists in their development of research questions?

UC SHOULD KEEP ACT, SAT; NOT BE INTIMIDATED

 Cache   

CALIFORNIA FOCUS
FOR RELEASE: FRIDAY, DECEMBER 13, 2019 OR THEREAFTER


BY THOMAS D. ELIAS
    “UC SHOULD KEEP ACT, SAT; NOT BE INTIMIDATED”


          For months, the University of California has been beset by the threat of a lawsuit from parents of minority students and others supposedly looking out for their interests, who insist the UC system’s use of national standardized tests in its admission process is discriminatory.


          Really? The claim propounded by lawyers for the Compton Unified School District, several students and five nonprofits is that the SAT and ACT exams taken by millions of high schoolers across the nation are not fair to minorities and children of the poor.


          They assert that test performances closely correlate with family incomes, parent education levels and race. That’s undoubtedly correct: Higher income families often seek classes and other educational opportunities for their children outside school programs and frequently arrange prep courses for their kids before they take the exams.


          Yes, the College Board, which runs the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) and the American College Testing (ACT) program have changed their exams, making them less likely to favor the economically privileged and white or Asian-American kids.


          But nothing prevents mostly-minority school districts like
Compton from designing test preparation courses of their own, specially targeted to overcome whatever disadvantages they believe their students might have. These classes could be offered free to everyone expected to take either test within two years of the class’s opening date. So far, only a few such publicly-funded classes exist, but where they do, student performances improved.


          Reality is that public schools cannot force parents to take a greater than normal interest in their kids’ education. Numerous studies show that the more educated parents are, the more they participate in parent-teacher activities at their children’s schools and the more assiduous they are about making sure their children do homework and attend school reliably.


          For sure, kids who form bad study and attendance habits from an early age almost always fare worse than others on the SAT and ACT.


          And what about the claim that use of the tests as a factor in UC admissions amounts to racial and economic discrimination? It’s no more discriminatory than the university system’s concurrent use of grade point averages, essays and class rankings, where parental education and financial standing also usually correlate with better performance.


          None of this will satisfy the anti-test advocates. Their unspoken aim: They would essentially like to see UC dumbed down so that more people can enjoy the prestige and the privileged assumptions that go with a diploma from one of America’s preeminent public universities.


          One official of the Oakland-based Equal Justice Society told a reporter that “The SAT has built-in biases that ultimately derail the college aspirations of thousands of hardworking students of color who would thrive in college and make important contributions to the UC community and beyond. The test serves no purpose other than to act as a barrier to higher education for historically disadvantaged students.”


          If there are some discriminatory aspects, they may include the fact that language dialects some students use at home do not jibe well with word usage on the test. This could be overcome by test-prep courses if they were widely offered by public schools in disadvantaged areas. That could be one very constructive use of the extra money the state has sent to schools with large numbers of poor kids under programs begun by ex-Gov. Jerry Brown six years ago. But few districts have done this.


          And there is ample evidence that the SAT and ACT usually serve their stated purpose: test results usually predict college performance by the test takers.


          At the same time, it does not seem to matter to opponents of standardized exams what the testing companies do to make their exams less sensitive to privilege and parental interest. Both firms have redesigned test questions with this factor in mind, but could not stem the complaints.


          The bottom line: In a climate where several UC chancellors and other top officials say they’re open to abandoning the tests, a UC committee is to report in early spring on what the elite system should do. Whatever it does, UC must take care to avoid anything that might undermine its high standing, which draws top faculty and students from around the world.

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.

Top takeaways from Sunday's Week 13 NFL action

 Cache   
Sunday’s Week 13 NFL slate opened with the Baltimore Ravens narrowly defeating the San Francisco 49ers in a potential Super Bowl preview in Baltimore. The day’s action did not get any less interesting from there. It included the Oakland Raiders, Carolina Panthers, Cleveland Browns and Philadelphia Eagles potentially playing themselves out of the playoffs. Meanwhile, the New England Patriots laid a complete egg in a 28-22 loss to the Houston Texans. These are among your top takeaways from an event-filled Sunday of action around the NFL. Super Bowl preview in Baltimore? It lived up to the hype. Both teams played physical, throwback football. It came down to the final seconds.

Panthers move Dontari Poe, Greg Van Roten to IR, sign Stacy McGee, Woodrow Hamilton

 Cache   
The Panthers made a flurry of roster moves on Wednesday morning. Carolina officially moved defensive tackle Dontari Poe and guard Greg Van Roten to the injured reserve and signed defensive linemen Stacy McGee and Woodrow Hamilton, according to Joe Person of The Athletic. The move to injured reserve was expected for Poe after it was reported earlier this week that he had to undergo surgery for a torn quad. Van Roten, however, left Sunday’s game against the Saints with a toe injury and the severity was not yet known. Now, both are officially out for the season. McGee is the more well-known of the two new additions. A six-year veteran, McGee played the first four seasons of his career with the Raiders where he served as a swingman, playing nearly every position along the defensive line. After his tenure in Oakland, Washington signed him to a two-year contract that spanned the 2017-18 seasons. Over his career, McGee has appeared in 75 games (29 starts), recorded 116 tackles, and 4 sacks. Hamilton has bounced bet

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

You Are On Indian Land: There There (On the Same Page 2019), thru Jan 31, 2020

 Cache   
Tommy Orange's debut novel, There There, is this year's On the Same Page program reading. The entire campus community is encouraged to read the book and participate in classes and events this Fall.

“Orange’s debut is an ambitious meditation on identity and its broken alternatives, on myth filtered through the lens of time and poverty and urban life. Its many short chapters are told through a loosely connected group of Native Americans living in Oakland, Calif., as they travel to a powwow. They are all, as in Chaucer, pilgrims on their way to a shrine, or, as in Faulkner’s “As I Lay Dying,” an extended family crossing the landscape. The novel is their picaresque journey, allowing for moments of pure soaring beauty to hit against the most mundane, for a sense of timelessness to be placed right beside a cleareyed version of the here and now.”

-- “The 10 Best Books of 2018” New York Times, November 29, 2018

The Moffitt Library exhibit (3rd floor) showcases the rich campus collections relating to Oakland's Native American community. The exhibit includes photos, videos, posters, and archival materials from the Ethnic Studies Library, Bancroft Library, Main Stacks, and from the Library's online databases. These selections illuminate some of the places and events in the book, including local pow wows, the Intertribal Friendship House in Oakland, and the Native American occupation of Alcatraz.

DaSilva completes his countdown with the most important player on the Rams being ...... you guessed it, QB Jared Goff!Rams vs Raiders: Five key matchups to watc (no replies)

 Cache   
Los Angeles Rams HC Sean McVay(Opening remarks)”Good day today. By the looks of it Johnny Hekker Jersey , feeling good about (LB) Mark Barron’s availability for the game. (TE) Tyler (Higbee) and (G) Rodger (Saffold) were also participants today and then (K) Greg (Zuerlein) will be out for the game. Other than that, feeling good and a great challenge ahead.”(On how aware he is of equally distributing the ball when he’s designing the game plan)”Yeah, I think one of the things that we try to do is use all five eligibles (receivers) and we’ve got a lot of great players at a bunch of different spots and we try to spread the ball around. I think (QB) Jared (Goff) is doing an excellent job, just going through his progressions, getting the ball where the coverage – or whatever the defensive call dictates. You definitely want to be able to get those guys involved and that’s something that we try to be mindful of. Certainly, you don’t always get some of the looks that you’re thinking about and things happen off schedule. But I think overall, he’s done a great job of just getting everybody involved by naturally going through his progressions and whatever the concept that we’re running dictates. Fortunately, a lot of guys are making plays and he’s putting it in great spots and getting great protection.”(On if Barron is on track to start)”Yes.”(On what he thinks Barron will give his defense)”I think it gives us a great player back in the mix. Good communicator, has great athleticism to be able to play sideline-to-sideline Greg Zuerlein Jersey , good understanding of what we’re trying to get done. We’ll watch him and see how he feels. Then, obviously tomorrow and leading up into the game, we’ll be able to kind of have a better evaluation of what does that snap count look like. But, if Mark’s going to go, we certainly want to take advantage of that and get him out there and contribute for our defense.”(On how he tries to mimic the crowd noise in Seattle during practices)”Yeah, I think you probably heard it. We get these loud speakers going, get a lot of complaints around the area. Hopefully we don’t do it too much (laughs). That’s really the closest thing that you can do. I’ve been around where you do the crowd noise and that’s not the most fun way to do it. So, really, as long as you’re creating an atmosphere that really inhibits your ability to verbally communicate – specific to the offense – that’s what we try to do. I thought our guys handled it pretty well. You can never truly mimic what CenturyLink (Field) is going to be like. Hopefully Jacob McQuaide Jersey , we’ll handle it well and it’s going to be a great challenge.”(On if he agrees with Seahawks Head Coach Pete Carroll’s statement that everything revolves around RB Todd Gurley II in the offense)”Well, I think he’s certainly a great player. When you’re a running back that has the ability to do, really, everything in terms of running the ball, catching the ball out of the backfield, protection. He’s an important part of our offense, no doubt. But, we talk about the power of the unit all the time and it’s about all 11 (players). That’s what we believe in and that’s what we feel. We feel really fortunate that (RB) Todd (Gurley II) can do a lot of things for us. We feel really good about putting the game in our quarterback’s hands and when he can distribute the ball to all the different playmakers and we feel great about our offensive line’s ability to protect and communicate and block in the run game. So, to say he’s the centerpiece – you know what a big fan I am of Todd Dominique Easley Jersey , but it’s about our offense and really all 11 (players) are very important, instrumental part of what we’re trying to get done.”(On what Barron’s experience brings to the defense relative to the current players at the linebacker position)”Well, I think any time that you’re getting a player, like you mentioned, that has that experience, it’s very beneficial. It doesn’t take away – I think (LB) Ramik Wilson’s played really good football for us. (S) Marqui Christian is a guy that’s gotten a chance to get a lot more snaps and he’s a player that we have a lot of confidence in that’s continuing to develop and our coaches have done a nice job. But, he’s a great football player. Very smart, instinctual player. You see why he was a top pick coming out of college. That athleticism, where he’s a safety at Alabama Troy Hill Jersey , played safety early on in his career and then transitions when he got traded to the Rams and he’s been excellent as a linebacker playing that inside spot. We’re excited about getting him back.”(On if Barron’s return will impact what LB Cory Littleton does as far as communication)”No, it doesn’t just because (LB) Cory (Littleton) is our MIKE linebacker. He’s done such a great job with that. He’ll continue to do that and Mark plays the MO linebacker position for us.”Random Ramsdom 9/10: Gameday!

Trion Properties Grows Portfolio in Bay Area With Acquisition of 84-Unit Multifamily Community in Newark, California

 Cache   
NEWPORT BEACH, CA - Trion Properties, a private equity real estate firm that specializes in multifamily investments in western markets, has expanded its Bay Area portfolio with the acquisition of The Meadows, an 84-unit multifamily community located in Newark, California for $27.5 million. South East Bay cities have benefited from a Silicon Valley spillover, and the region is experiencing unprecedented population growth and employment boom, according to Max Sharkansky, Managing Partner at Trion Properties. Newark has become one of the fastest-growing cities for top tech businesses to either expand or relocate, explains Sharkansky. With Facebook recently announcing that it will be leasing nearly 1.5 million square feet within two miles of The Meadows, the area is positioned for further growth and resident demand. The asset fits into our investment strategy seamlessly, based on the strong location and potential for upgrades to enhance the quality of this product. Along with Facebook, Tesla, Amazon, HP, Sysco, Boston Scientific, Logitech, and other major firms have offices in the immediate neighborhood. Sharkansky also notes that while Newark has experienced significant growth in the recent years, the average rental rates remain an attractive value alternative to many neighboring Bay Area cities, which will continue to drive potential renters to the city. We immediately recognized the long-term appeal of this property to residents across demographics, explains Andrew Lucas, Director of Capital Markets at Trion Properties. The Meadows is strategically situated between Oakland and San Jose, with close proximity to other major cities including Palo Alto and San Francisco, offering prime access to jobs and social activities. The apartment community is also located near excellent area schools, adding to its desirability. The property, built in 1966, will undergo extensive renovations and a rebranding, according to Farhan Mahmood, Managing Director, Acquisitions at Trion Properties. This acquisition is an opportunity to implement our proven value-add renovation strategies to modernize the community and bring rents up to market, states Mahmood. We will leverage our experience in the East Bay and current portfolio, including multifamily properties in Fremont, San Leandro, and Hayward, to optimize the asset s appeal and efficiencies. The Meadows features a mixture of one-, two- and three-bedroom units, all with private patios or balconies and walk-in closets. According to Mahmood, Trion Properties plans to makeover units with stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, vinyl plank flooring, new cabinetry, Bluetooth locks, upgraded bathroom vanities, and in-unit washers and dryers. Exterior upgrades will include landscaping and new signage to reflect the rebranding. The Newark Community Center Park and Lakeshore Park are easily accessible to the property and offer walking trails, picnic areas, and tennis courts for public use. Further, The Meadows is located within a 15-minute walk of a Sprouts, plus several other local retailers and restaurants. The property is located at 35750 Bettencourt Street in Newark, California. About Trion Properties: Founded in 2005 and headquartered in Los Angeles, Trion Properties is a private equity real estate firm that invests in value-add multifamily throughout the west coast. Trion has completed more than $300 million in transactions, with a portfolio of over $315 million in assets, generating an average internal rate of return in excess of 30 percent. With its fully built-out operator platform, Trion has repositioned and stabilized undervalued assets, leveraging its expertise in real estate finance and renovation of multifamily properties to drive returns for its investors. Since its inception, Trion has acquired the fee interest—or in certain instances the debt secured by the fee interest—of over 2,450 multifamily units. To date, Trion has successfully repositioned and resold over 1,150 units and over 180,000 square feet of commercial real estate space. The principals of Trion Properties are Max Sharkansky and Mitch Paskover, two real estate professionals with over 30 years of combined experience in finance, acquisitions, management and redevelopment.

American workers are fed up. So fed up that they’re taking one of the most radical steps available to them: refusing to work.

This year kicked off with public school teachers in California going on strike to demand higher pay, more support services, and smaller class sizes. In October, Chicago’s teachers followed suit, staging their longest strike in decades. Then teachers in Little Rock, Arkansas, struck for just the second time in the city’s history. In between the teachers’ strikes, 46,000 General Motors workers walked off the job for 40 days, the longest strike by autoworkers in half a century, to call for higher pay, better benefits, investment in American plants, and a path to full-time status for temporary workers—all meant to reverse the belt-tightening implemented during the Great Recession. A number of other workers, from nurses to Uber drivers to grocery store employees, have also walked off the job to make demands of their bosses.

We won’t have the official numbers for how many Americans went on strike this year until 2020. But workers have clearly continued last year’s trend of insisting that they deserve a share of the spoils from the longest US economic expansion on record.

More workers went on strike last year—485,200 of them—than at any time since 1986, the year The Oprah Winfrey Show debuted and Microsoft went public. There were 20 major strikes in 2018, the most since before the recession. Teachers walked off the job in Arizona, Colorado, Kentucky, Oklahoma, and West Virginia to demand better pay and better resources for their students. Fifty thousand hospitality workers voted to strike in Las Vegas, and hotel workers walked picket lines in Chicago. Fast food workers continued their fight for a $15 minimum hourly wage and the right to unionize and had a new demand: that their employers address the sexual harassment they experience at work. McDonald’s workers conducted the first national strike over sexual harassment in the country’s history.

Until the 1980s, American workers regularly staged hundreds of major strikes each year to try and compel employers to treat and pay them better. But in the decades since, that tradition was all but snuffed out, particularly fading during the Great Recession, when people feared losing their jobs. The nadir was in 2009, with just five strikes involving a mere 12,500 people.

If last year and this year have shown anything, it’s that American workers have decided they can’t afford to be afraid anymore. On the surface, they seem to be doing well. The economy has been expanding for a decade now, with healthy job growth and falling unemployment. Work appears to be plentiful.

So why would Americans put down their chalk, wrenches, and spatulas or close their laptops to take to the picket lines? For one thing, wages have barely budged, increasing just 3 percent this year—far less than would be expected with so many people back at work. More than 40 percent of workers are stuck in low-wage jobs, making less than $18,000 a year at the median. No wonder, then, that four in 10 Americans would struggle to cover an unexpected expense of $400 and 17 percent can’t pay all their current bills.

The healthy employment numbers also mask the insecurity many feel. Nearly a fifth of workers have schedules that vary based on their employers’ demands, not their own needs. While the number of uninsured Americans has dropped in recent years, even those with insurance aren’t always saved from financial hardship, given that last year nearly a quarter of all adults went without medical care because they couldn’t pay for it. Over 30 percent of private-sector workers don’t have access to retirement benefits through their jobs. If they need time off, they’re unlikely to get paid for it: About 40 percent don’t have paid sick leave, about 25 percent don’t have paid vacations, and a mere 12 percent have paid family leave.

During the last recession, many employers argued that they had to cut back on jobs, pay, and benefits to make it through dire financial times. Lots of workers felt they had no choice but to swallow those edicts, keep their heads down, and hope for the best.

But a decade of healthy economic growth hasn’t loosened the purse strings. Workers keep fueling the economic expansion without reaping the rewards. Refusing to work is the sharpest tool they have to carve out a fair share of the economic pie. They’ve finally been pushed to wield it.




          

Chiefs rout Raiders 40-9 to seize AFC West control

 Cache   

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Patrick Mahomes threw for a touchdown and ran for a touchdown, Juan Thornhill returned a pick 46 yards for another score, and the Kansas City Chiefs beat the bumbling Oakland Raiders 40-9 on Sunday to seize control of the AFC West.

LeSean McCoy and Darwin Thompson also had TD runs for the Chiefs (8-4), who took a two-game lead over the Raiders by finishing off a season sweep. That means Kansas City can clinch a fourth straight division title with a win over New England and an Oakland loss to Tennessee next weekend.

Oakland (6-6) sure didn’t play like a team fighting for a piece of the division lead... Read More

California and China Strengthen Cleantech Ties as Trade War Smolders

 Cache   

CHENGDU, CHINA — At least a dozen cranes are visible from the Holiday Inn at Tianfu New Area, a state-designated development zone on the outskirts of Chengdu, the capital of Sichuan Province.

The Tianfu New Area is so new, in fact, that the streets and sidewalks below the towering construction equipment are virtually empty.

As Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen have established themselves as epicenters for high-tech investment and innovation, the Chinese government has shifted its focus to building out a competitive technology ecosystem in this cloudy inland metropolis.

Chengdu is already home to several large international corporations, including Dell and IBM. The Chinese tech giant Huawei operates a research center in Chengdu and recently rolled out multidimensional 5G network across the city.

Chengdu’s Tianfu New Area was approved in 2014 to serve as a model for sustainable urban development and a hub for strategic new industries. Now, it is where key stakeholders are concentrating efforts to expand their work on the “energy internet,” or the deep integration of energy and information technology, which was identified as a strategic focus area in China’s 13th Five-Year Plan.

In June, a group of prominent companies, government leaders, researchers and startups from both sides of the Pacific gathered at the Tianfu New Area convention center for the first annual Energy Internet Innovation and Entrepreneurship Summit.

“The energy internet has become a very important part of our strategy for power [sector] development: the integration of power architecture to increase the percentage of renewable energy in our energy mix as well as promote the efficient utilization of energy,” Yinong Zhao, deputy director of the Department of Power at China’s National Energy Administration, said in his opening remarks at the summit, communicated via translator.

He added that in today’s globalized energy economy, “strengthening dialogue is the only way to promote a win-win future.”

The first day of the conference also marked the launch of Tsinghua University’s Energy Internet Innovation and Entrepreneurship Center, a newly built research facility and co-working space equipped with a live power grid simulation testing system. The center — operated in partnership with the Oakland, California-based cleantech accelerator New Energy Nexus — also serves as launch pad for energy startups looking to do business in China.

Despite the ongoing U.S.-China trade war, California policy and business leaders have forged ahead with efforts to collaborate with China on the advancement of low-carbon energy technologies considered both financially lucrative and critical to mitigating the worst impacts of climate change.

U.S.-China relations have been on the rocks for over a year, with both countries imposing tariffs on billions of dollars worth of each other's goods.

Top U.S. officials held a phone call with China's lead trade negotiator this week, and both parties said they remain committed to reaching a "phase one" trade agreement. But tensions remain high as past talks have ended in near-collapse.

“Obviously it’s a period of great tension right now between the U.S. and China,” said David Hochschild, chair of the California Energy Commission (CEC), in an interview over breakfast in Chengdu. “That’s why it’s more important than ever that we’re here representing California, because we want a strong relationship and a strong partnership.”

As economic and technology development powerhouses, California and China have a unique opportunity to partner in building a clean energy future at home and abroad, Hochschild said.

“I think the ability to scale and innovate is incredibly strong in China and California,” he said. “I actually think it’s the most important strategic relationship on energy that there is right now.”

Chinese energy companies visit the Bay Area

Earlier this month, New Energy Nexus hosted a delegation of Chinese energy industry professionals on a tour of the Bay Area’s clean energy sector, building upon relationships established in Chengdu.

“The whole idea is to introduce Chinese clean energy companies to California’s cleantech ecosystem, as we have a...unique one, and to encourage and inspire the same type of ecosystem to grow within China,” said Andrew Chang, director of the New Energy Nexus China program out of Shanghai.

Chang, who is American and previously worked on market expansion for U.S. solar firm Sungevity, noted that California’s approach to public-private partnerships is of particular interest to Chinese stakeholders. Initiatives such as the California Electric Program Investment Charge Program garner attention because they differ from the blanket subsidies provided in China.

Another aim of hosting the Chinese delegation is to identify collaboration opportunities around specific technologies, Chang said. This month’s tour focused primarily on energy storage, energy efficiency, port electrification and electric trucks.

Attendees included representatives from GCL-Poly, one of the world’s largest solar photovoltaic enterprises; Chengdu Tecloman Energy Storage Technology Co., a leading supplier of energy storage systems in China; and GoodWe, a global top-10 solar inverter manufacturer, according to Wood Mackenzie. Many Chinese solar firms are keen to grow their U.S. market presence despite barriers from a lingering solar trade war that precedes the larger trade face-off. 

Members of the delegation met with several California-based cleantech startups, which Chang said has already led to at least one follow-up.

Other destinations on the tour included the California Air Resources Board, which oversees state programs to reduce pollution and fight climate change; Go-Biz, which serves as California’s primary point of contact for foreign direct investment; and the California-China Climate Institute, a new research partnership between UC Berkeley and Tsinghua University, led by former California Governor Jerry Brown.

“The climate threat doesn’t respect borders, and it doesn’t pause for politics,” Brown said at the launch of the partnership on September 23.

Continuing to foster idea exchange through the university system is especially important as trade policy remains in flux, said Chang. He acknowledged that it is a sensitive time to do business with China, but insisted there are still multiple areas ripe for collaboration, and that universities can serve as the hub for that work.

“Right now our biggest challenge is climate change. So in order to [address] that, we need to team up,” he added. “We’re stronger together and we need to build bridges in order to make that happen.”

California startups meet with State Grid

Twenty-five startups displayed and demonstrated their technologies at the Energy Internet Summit in Chengdu. Ten of the participating companies came from California.

The conference presented a unique opportunity for U.S. startups to connect with Chinese investors and utilities, State Grid and China Southern Power Grid. Four of the California-based startups were invited to an additional meeting with State Grid in Beijing. (State Grid refused an interview request at the Energy Internet Summit.)

“We really didn’t know what to expect,” said Zora Chung, chief financial officer at ReJoule, a Garden Grove, Ca.-based startup offering a diagnostic and management platform for electric vehicle batteries.

There were around 30 people in the room at the State Grid meeting and even more listening in via conference call, Chung said, reflecting back on the meeting in a recent interview. While some of the startups were keen to explore investment opportunities in China during their trip, Chung said the State Grid meeting was billed primarily as a “learning experience.”

Entering China is not an immediate priority for ReJoule, despite the impressive size of tte country's EV market, she said. California has a strong clean energy technology landscape, which has already enabled the two-year-old battery company to forge relationships with major automakers. Still, ReJoule is “closely monitoring” China’s EV market and policy landscape.

“Ignoring half the market isn’t the best idea, in my opinion,” said Chung.

While there were no immediate follow-ups stemming from the State Grid meeting, Heather Hochrein, CEO of the peer-to-peer electric car charging startup EVmatch, said learning about the rapid expansion of State Grid’s EV charging network and continuing research on vehicle-to-grid technologies was valuable. Observing Beijing’s charging system, and the city’s dedicated network of curbside fast-charging stations for taxis in particular, also proved to be informative.

“I definitely felt like we’re behind and the U.S. has a lot of work to do,” she said. “It seems like there’s a lot to be learned from China.”

Building trust in an age of IP theft

A central question in the evolving relationship between California and China on clean energy solutions is which entity needs the other more. CEC Chair David Hochschild said he sees exchanges “go both ways." 

Tesla, for instance, has successfully set up operations in China as it looks to tap into the country's massive automotive market. Separately, U.S.-based solar firm SunPower has benefited for years from ties to the state-owned Chinese company Tianjin Zhonghuan Semiconductor. Earlier this month, TZE pledged to invest $300 million into Maxeon Solar Technologies as part of a spinoff of SunPower's solar manufacturing business.

While these types of relationships are mutually beneficial, Hochschild cautioned that “the stakes are very high” for American companies in the longer term. The U.S. auto industry, for instance, trailed Japan in developing hybrid cars and now risks falling behind China on electric vehicles.

“To prevail, you’ve got to be focused on the technology of the future, you’ve got to be investing in that technology, and you’ve got to be supporting that technology with every possible resource you have as a nation — which we’re not doing,” he said.

When asked whether U.S. cleantech startups need investment and purchases from China more or less than China needs U.S. clean energy technology, Taj Ahmad Eldridge, senior director of investments at the Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator (LACI), didn’t mince words.

“I sincerely believe, from my experience looking at the technologies that are being developed at the universities, and [that] they have funding for, we need them more,” he said. “It may be shortsighted from a political standpoint not to mention that.”

Finding domestic sources of funding for hardware solutions has been especially difficult. In China, meanwhile, “that’s their competitive advantage,” Eldridge said. “They don’t shy away from hardware.”

But partnering California-based clean energy startups with Chinese investors is a difficult dance. Chinese funders are often surprised to meet American startups with six-person teams and no government backing, and they can sometimes struggle to take such teams seriously. LACI has hosted dozens of Chinese delegations with very few investments or partnerships to follow. At the same time, U.S. startups can be hesitant to engage with Chinese stakeholders.

“The hardest part of those relationships that we’ve seen is truly building a sense of trust,” said Eldridge.

Protecting their intellectual property (IP) is the chief concern for many entrepreneurs. Several of the U.S. startups that attended the Energy Internet Summit in Chengdu said they were concerned about IP theft — an issue at the center of the U.S.-China trade war. At least one American entrepreneur left their laptop at home to avoid the risk of hacking.

According to Chung, IP theft concerns are not country-specific. Her company has a standard policy to protect sensitive aspects of ReJoule’s technology in public settings. IP protection “is always a concern,” she said.

The U.S. government has been much more targeted in its position, citing Chinese IP theft as a critical issue. To address those concerns, the Chinese government announced this week it would increase penalties on entities found violating IP rights in an attempt to advance trade talks with the Trump administration.

The journey ahead

Trade tensions loomed over the 2019 China-California Business Forum held over the summer in Los Angeles.

California Lieutenant Governor Eleni Kounalakis noted in her speech at the forum that while California does not set trade policy, it has more to gain or lose than any other state. According to Kounalakis, 30 percent of all U.S. exports and 40 percent of all U.S. imports come through California. In addition, trade supports 20 percent of the state’s workforce.

But economics aren’t the state’s only concern. Climate change also poses a serious threat in the form of hotter temperatures, raging wildfires and rising seas, said Kounalakis. That is why California is combating climate change through policy measures and cleantech investments. And it’s another reason why California is looking to enhance its partnership with China.

“As California has charted our ambitious pathway, a strong partnership between California and China has emerged,” said the lieutenant governor. “It is built on a foundation of friendship and a recognition that the earth’s changing climate is a crisis that threatens us all.”

With the COP25 climate talks set to get underway in Madrid next month, all eyes are on China. While the country is investing heavily in the energy internet and a wide array of low-carbon technologies, it is also still adding a significant amount of new coal plant capacity to the grid.

Hochschild noted there’s a purely economic case to be made for supporting clean energy technology development in both the U.S and China, but he added that he’s working to enhance the California-China relationship “for the climate risk."

“We’re at a crossroads for energy development,” said Wang Guanghui, a representative of the State Grid Energy Research Institute, speaking at the Energy Internet Summit in Chengdu via translator. “But in the old Chinese proverb, we say, ‘As long as we start the journey, we will always find a way to reach the destination.’”

Stations: Rincon

 Cache   
In the days when México still controlled California, San Lorenzo Gorge was largely a single land grant that went by the name Rancho la Cañada del Rincon en el Río San Lorenzo de Santa Cruz (Ranch in the Canyon of the Bend in the San Lorenzo River of Santa Cruz). The property was not overly productive nor profitable, but during the 1860s, a small sawmill and accompanying paper mill were established in a flat clearing beside the Eben Bennett Toll Road between Santa Cruz and Felton. The property shortly afterwards passed into the control of the Davis & Cowell Lime Company.

When survey and grading crews for the San Lorenzo Railroad passed through the area in 1868, they stuck close to the river far below, avoiding Sawmill Flat which angered the lime barons, who received no compensation for the timber that was cut on their land by the railroad. Furthermore, the right-of-way was to difficult to access, meaning that they also would not benefit from railroad access. They promptly sued the company and the railroad project fell apart having never lain a single rail.

Enter the Santa Cruz & Felton Railroad. In late 1874, the railroad incorporated and almost immediately started surveying a new route up San Lorenzo Gorge. Rather than following the more logical route low in the canyon, the company realized that it needed to gain the support of the lime company. Therefore, it graded its right-of-way much higher along the canyon wall. At a point about one hundred yards south of Sawmill Flat, it crossed the highest point on the line. South from here, the grade was a continuous incline down to the Monterey Bay, but to the north, it was a relatively gradual downward slope to Felton.

During the Santa Cruz & Felton years, Davis & Cowell never used the railroad, but they did require a 300-foot siding be installed at Sawmill Flat, just in case they needed it. And since it was the first flat area on the route to Felton, it became the primary passing zone for the two trains that operated along the line. The railroad named the location El Rincon, for the rancho, but when the South Pacific Coast Railroad took over the line in 1879, it renamed the location Summit, since it was the highest point on the old route. The station did have one semi-permanent occupant: a railroad agent who lived in a small cabin alongside the tracks and walked the route to Felton every morning to ensure that there were no slides or fallen trees on the right-of-way. In 1883, after four years operating as Summit, the location resumed its old name of Rincon, and that name has remained in use ever since.

For many years, Rincon was little more than a waiting area for South Pacific Coast and, later, Southern Pacific Railroad box- and flatcars. Because of the steep grade from Santa Cruz, shorter trains sometimes hauled heavy loads to the siding at Rincon and then assembled full consists for the long run to San José, Oakland, and San Francisco. In 1885, Davis & Cowell built a small warehouse beside the tracks at Rincon so that lime barrels could be loaded and unloaded there. Full barrels were picked up from the warehouse and taken to various destinations, while empty barrels were dumped along the side of the siding here for reuse. This exchange system increased substantially after Davis died and Cowell took full control of the company in 1889.

Around the turn of the century, Cowell began heavily shifting his preferred transport method to railroad. The destruction during a storm in December 1907 of his ancient pier, located at the end of Bay Street, forced the issue and suddenly expanding operations at Rincon became a priority. Where previously Cowell had used redwood timber to heat his lime kilns, the trend in 1907 was toward crude oil. And oil was most efficiently and safely transported via rail. As a result, the area around Rincon was quickly upgraded into the Cowell Lime Company's primary kilns, opening in 1909.

The seven new kilns at Rincon operated continuously, day and night, and ran off oil and steam. While the quicklime that they produced was not of the highest grade, the speed with which they could produce saleable quicklime more than compensated for the quality. A cooperage was built beside the kilns and a worker village sprang up along the east side of the tracks, above the river. Tens of thousands of barrels of quicklime were produced each year that this facility operated.

To address the increased activity at the location, Southern Pacific installed a longer standard-gauge siding in 1907, that eventually reached 1,300 feet in length. A second siding was also added that ran along the fronts of the kilns, while a spur was built in front of the new storage warehouse. During the off season, a station agent lived in a shack beside the tracks and railroad employees often called upon the agent during bad weather or while waiting for the train to be loaded by work crews.

The kilns at Rincon thrived until the 1920s, and lingered through the Great Depression and war years. After Cowell himself died, his heirs continued the company for a little longer but eventually lost interest as demand for quicklime and lime products in general declined. In 1946, the plant at Rincon shut down, although most of the structures remained. The homeless soon moved into the abandoned warehouse, worker cottages, and other structures. Meanwhile, excursion trains often stopped at Rincon to let off anglers and hikers. Hopper cars from the Olympia sand quarries sometimes sat on the sidings at Rincon, waiting pickup by a passing train.

The sidings at Rincon were removed in 1960, not long after Southern Pacific had switched to diesel locomotives that could handle the climb to Olympia and back without needing to unload cars. The property itself had been sold by the Cowell family to the State of California in 1954 to form the larger part of Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park. The remaining buildings were removed in the 1960s due to safety, security, and aesthetic concerns. The kilns, however, were collapsed and partially buried, but still remain today, currently obscured by blackberry and poison oak bushes.

Today, Rincon is easily and legally accessible. It is located near the south boundary of Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park along State Route 9 at the large pullout north of where the railroad tracks cross the highway. Everything from the parking lot to the tracks was part of the former Cowell limeworks or hosted tracks. Roaring Camp Railroads has an easement for the right-of-way but this is one of the few areas where the public is able to enjoy the tracks without condemnation by locomotive engineers. The location is popular for mountain bikers, who climb up the old hauling roads and mule trails above Rincon to access Pogonip and the University of California, Santa Cruz main campus. It is also popular with anglers, who head down the hill to the river, where it is especially wide and relatively calm. During the summer, the tracks are still used up to four times per day by the Santa Cruz Big Trees & Pacific Railway, so caution is advised when loitering near the tracks.

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. (SERVICE: Spielplan und Ergebnisse der NFL)

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)
2. New England Patriots (10-2)
3. Houston Texans (8-4)
4. Kansas City Chiefs (8-4)
5. Buffalo Bills (9-3)
6. Pittsburgh Steelers (7-5)

NFC
1. San Francisco 49ers (10-2)
2. New Orleans Saints (10-2)
3. Green Bay Packers (9-3)
4. Dallas Cowboys (6-6)
5. Seattle Seahawks (9-2)
6. Minnesota Vikings (8-3)

NFL rumors: Amari Cooper likely won't return to Cowboys next season

 Cache   
After getting off to a 1-5 start in 2018, the Raiders decided to trade former top-five draft pick Amari Cooper to the Dallas Cowboys for a first-round draft pick. General manager Mike Mayock utilized that pick to select Mississippi State safety Johnathan Abram, who had a promising preseason before suffering a season-ending injury in Week 1. It now appears that the Cowboys sent a first-round pick to Oakland for a rental of Cooper, as the team reportedly is looking more and more likely to not be re-signing the wide receiver, CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports citing a source.

On the road again: Nurse heads west with her faithful pup

 Cache   

By Maureen Gilmer, IU Health senior journalist, mgilmer1@iuhealth.org

This Thanksgiving, Tiffany Olmstead will get to do something unusual – sit down for turkey and the trimmings with her extended family.

The emergency department nurse at Riley Hospital for Children often works holidays to give others time with their kids. But this year, she is off because two days after Thanksgiving, she will hop in her Jeep Wrangler with her black lab Elsa for the 16-hour drive to Denver.

She’ll be reporting for work in the ED at Children’s Hospital Colorado. It’s another stop in Olmstead’s traveling nurse adventure, which she started about four years ago, working a few months at a time in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Diego and Oakland, Calif., before heading home to Indianapolis and Riley.

“I always come back to Riley,” she said. “It’s home.”

Olmstead has been an emergency nurse for 11 years, the past eight at Riley. She likes that no day is the same.

“I hate routine.”

It’s a tough job, but she says her colleagues make it easier.

“There are certain situations that each of us thrive in and certain times we say, ‘Nope, I can’t do that.’ It’s nice that everybody knows each other’s limits.”

As she’s talking, Olmstead is trying hard not to cry. Her thoughts have shifted to a child, as they often do.

“Sorry if I am emotional,” she said. “We had one over the weekend that was just hard.”

Moments like that can sneak up on even the hardiest of nurses, who see heartbreaking cases day after day, night after night.

On those really difficult days, a Code Lavender is called. Chaplains descend on the unit rolling a cart with tea and cookies. They talk to the staff and they listen. They do a blessing of the hands. It’s a way to provide a moment of healing amid the pain of loss.

And it truly helps, Olmstead said. Something else helps her, too. Her name is Elsa.

“Luckily, I have a dog that cuddles with me a lot,” she said, absorbing the grief and stress.

Elsa, her rescue pup, is her companion on most all of her journeys, traveling to more states and national parks than a lot of people.

“She comes hiking with me; in LA we went to the dog beach. Pretty much everywhere I go, she comes along.”

The drive to Denver won’t be any different. And Elsa gets the whole back seat to herself, passing the time looking out the window, napping and getting out for the occasional romp at a rest stop or interesting landmark.

Olmstead looks forward to the change of scenery that comes with a different hospital in a different city.

“It keeps me fresh,” she said. “ER nurses have a high burnout rate, so I think it helps keep me fresh, and I get to bring back ideas for our ER.”

Stepping into a new environment comes with its own challenges, of course.

“ER nurses are a different breed,” she said. “When you go into these situations where you know no one, people are very accepting of you because you’re one of them. But there is also that time where you have to prove yourself to them, which I enjoy. Although they’re accepting, they may not be as trusting because they haven’t worked with you. It’s nice to be able to show I know what I’m doing.”

Riley PICU nurse Kelsi Lawless believes her friend Tiffany sets the standard at Riley and in other hospitals that she visits.

“She is truly one of the BEST nurses at Riley,” Lawless said.

If she couldn’t be an emergency nurse, Olmstead, who volunteers in the summer with Camp Riley, would like to be a camp nurse.

“If I could be a camp nurse the rest of my life, I probably would. I love kids and I love camp, so it’s the perfect combo.”

She works with kids who have cerebral palsy and kids with mobility challenges who would otherwise never get to climb and play the way they do at Camp Riley.

“Nowhere else in the country can kids do this stuff, and we’re lucky enough to have it here.”

She’s thought about moving from emergency to intensive care, and then there’s part of her that has always wanted to do flight nursing. But the timing has always been off, she said.

“I have a feeling that no matter what I do, I will be back in the ER. When you do it this long, it’s just part of you.”

Event Update For 2019-11-26

 Cache   






The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.




A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

Chiefs dominan 40-9 a Raiders y toman control divisional

 Cache   

Patrick Mahomes lanzó para un touchdown y anotó otro por tierra, Juan Thornhill interceptó y recorrió 46 yardas hasta cruzar la zona de anotación y los Chiefs de Kansas City arrollaron el domingo 40-9 a los Raiders de Oakland para tomar el control de la División Oeste de la Conferencia Americana.

LeSean McCoy y Darwin Thompson también lograron touchdowns por los Chiefs (8-4), que tomaron una ventaja de dos juegos sobre los Raiders al completar la barrida de la temporada ante Oakland. Eso significa que Kansas City puede asegurar su cuarto título divisional seguido con una victoria sobre Nueva Inglaterra y una derrota de Oakland frente a Tennessee el próximo fin de semana.

Oakland (6-6) lució muy inferior a un equipo que lucha por la cima de la división.

Derek Carr cayó a marca de 0-6 en el estadio Arrowhead con otra miserable actuación, lanzando para 222 yardas, un touchdown y dos intercepciones. Los Raiders no pudieron sumar puntos en dos series en las que llegaron a la zona roja, cometieron 12 faltas para ser castigados 99 yardas, y parecía que se habían rendido cuando Kansas City usó 9:30 minutos en una serie ofensiva en la que su ataque fue casi totalmente por tierra al consumir la mayoría del cuarto periodo.

Cuando los Raiders finalmente se apuntaron un touchdown en el último minuto de juego, los Chiefs bloquearon el punto extra y llevaron el balón al otro extremo de la cancha para sumar dos puntos más _otra ofensa a Oakland en un partido lleno de ellas.


          

40-9. Mahomes dirige a los Chiefs que controlan su división

 Cache   

Kansas City (EE.UU.), 1 dic (EFE).- El mariscal de campo Patrick Mahomes lanzó para una anotación y corrió para una más y los Chiefs de Kansas City derrotaron 40-9 a los Raiders de Oakland.

Con su victoria, los Chiefs toman el control de la División Oeste de la Conferencia Americana.

Juan Thornhill devolvió una selección de jugada de 46 yardas para otra anotación de los Chiefs, quienes tomaron ventaja de dos partidos sobre los Raiders al conseguir barrida de temporada.

Eso significa que el equipo de Kansas City puede asegurar un cuarto título de división consecutivo con una victoria sobre los Patriots de Nueva Inglaterra y una derrota de los Raiders ante los Titans de Tennessee el próximo fin de semana.

Mahomes completó 15 de 29 pases para 175 yardas con un pase de anotación.

Por los Raiders, su mariscal de campo Derek Carr completó 20 de 30 pases para 222 yardas, con un pase de anotación y dos interceptaciones.

Fue la séptima derrota consecutiva de los Raiders en Kansas City.EFE

Not just yet. I would be really interested on hearing your opinion on some of the other teams' alleged cheating.

Here are some of the editorials I've found:

Here is Shaquille O'Neil talking about deflating basketballs before games:

[www.boston.com]

Here is an article alleging that the Oakland Raiders deflated footballs during a playoff game in 1973:

Not to be outdone, the Steelers retaliated two years later:

Here is an article about the 49ers using illegal blocking techniques during their heyday:

Even the Kansas City Chiefs whom, I think, most of us like, are getting into the action:

CREAM’S FINAL TOUR SET FOR FOUR-DISC RETROSPECTIVE

 Cache   

Set for release on February 7th, is the four-CD, special edition of Cream's Goodbye Tour Live 1968. The collection features 36 tracks -- including 29 making their first appearance on CD -- recorded during Cream's farewell U.S. tour in October 1968, along with the band's last show that November 26th at London's Royal Albert Hall. Cream's Goodbye Tour Live 1968 includes 19 previously unreleased tracks, as well as a further 10 tracks from the Royal Albert Hall show, which have only ever been available on DVD. Rolling Stone editor David Fricke wrote the set's liner notes chronicling Eric Clapton, Jack Bruce, and Ginger Baker's last live dates as full-on collective unit.

Among the classic Cream tracks included within the four discs are "White Room," "Politician," "Crossroads," "Sunshine Of Your Love," "Toad," "I'm So Glad, and many more. According to the press release, "For all pre-orders, there will be free downloads made available with "Sunshine Of Your Love" (Live At Oakland Coliseum Arena, California / 1968), followed by "Crossroads" (Live At The San Diego Sports Arena / 1968) on January 13th, 2020."

The original February 1969 release of Cream's Goodbye combined live performances from their last tour dates with a handful of studio recordings, hitting Number One in the UK and peaking at Number Two Stateside.

In the film of Cream's 1968 farewell concert at London's Royal Albert Hall, Jack Bruce spoke about the role volume played in Cream's then-recent gigs: "Suddenly, about two or three years ago, the ideas of dynamics and balance and things changed; I think mainly because of these giant amplifiers were developed. And it's just something that's in its infancy, really. It's something that affects the audience in a physical way, as well as in a mental way. In an audience, especially in a small place -- smaller than this, this size -- you get an actual physical feeling of the, the amount of volume that's coming out, and it's exciting."
