Judah Smith Launches 'Guided Prayers' That Justin Bieber Says Have Been Helping Him

 Cache   

Earlier this week, Judah and Chelsea Smith launched a new feature on their Churchome app: "Guided Prayers."

In an Instagram post announcing the new prayer feature, Judah says he and his wife—who both pastor Churchome in Seattle, Washington—appear in videos to guide people through prayers that are relevant and five minutes or less.

"Guided prayer is a spiritual experience," he says. "It's much more than just a method. It's much more than just content to consume. It's an experience to be had. It's a moment to be in, completely present, connecting with God. It's based on Scripture. It's based on the way Jesus taught His 12 disciples to pray."

Judah also says the feature uses the Lord's Prayer as an outline to help people take time to pray—whether it's late at night or early in the morning. Their goal, he says, is to give people "the best chance they could have to experience the presence of Jesus and actually follow him in their ordinary, everyday lives."

In September, Justin Bieber shared one of the Smiths' guided prayers on Instagram.

"When you have a quiet moment, get into a comfortable position and listen," Bieber wrote. "They have really been helping me and thought I would share."

Scientists Created Fake Rhino Horn. But Should We Use It?

 Cache   

Scientists Created Fake Rhino Horn. But Should We Use It?In Africa, 892 rhinos were poached for their horns in 2018, down from a high of 1,349 killed in 2015. The decline in deaths is encouraging, but conservationists agree that poaching still poses a dire threat to Africa's rhino population, which hovers around 24,500 animals.Now, in the hopes of driving down the value of rhino horn and reducing poaching even more, scientists have created a convincing artificial rhino horn made from horsehair."We're not trying to supplant boots-on-the-ground, vigilant customs officials and protection of rhino habitat," said Fritz Vollrath, a biologist at the University of Oxford and senior author of the study, published in Scientific Reports. "But these measures alone so far have not been sufficient to save the rhino, so what we're doing here is bringing out a really good fake."The product that Vollrath and colleagues at Fudan University in China have produced looks identical to rhino horn under a microscope. It has a similar chemical signature and behaves like rhino horn when cut or shaved. It even smells the same when burned.With such properties, Vollrath believes his artificial horn could be used to covertly flood the market with a cheap, convincing replacement, reducing the demand that leads to rhinos being slaughtered.A number of experts pushed back, however, saying such a product is unnecessary and even dangerous.Some wealthy elites in China and Vietnam continue to give rhino horn as gifts and, in Vietnam, bring it to parties as a hangover preventive. In China, it's also carved into jewelry and ornate cups, and collected for speculation purposes."What we've seen is that most rhino horn is now being used for status symbols," said Olivia Swaak-Goldman, executive director of the Wildlife Justice Commission, a nonprofit organization that investigates wildlife trafficking networks.Status depends on rhino horn's exclusivity, high price and rarity, things that Vollrath believes his artificial horn could undermine.Rhino horn, as Vollrath puts it, is "nothing but a tuft of nose hair stuck together with glue that comes out of the animal's nose glands." He and his colleagues chose horsehair as a basis for their fake rhino horn because horses are a close relative of rhinos. They cleaned and tightly bundled the hair, then bound it together with a mixture of liquefied silk, which stood in for the collagen found in rhino horn, as well as cellulose, which represented the plant material that gets rubbed in as rhinos sharpen their horns.Pembient, a Seattle-based bioengineering company, is exploring the development of 3D-printed rhino horn. Matthew Markus, Pembient's chief executive, said he would be open to testing the new horsehair formula.But his company has also faced pushback from conservationists.Critics say that fake rhino horn risks stimulating demand for real horn and that it would complicate policing. "There's already scarce resources for wildlife crime, and we don't want to make it even more difficult for law enforcement," said Swaak-Goldman, who works with governments and law enforcement agencies.Peter Knights, chief executive of WildAid, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending illegal wildlife trade, added that the market in Vietnam was already flooded with convincing fakes, like water buffalo horn, which accounts for up to 90% of what's sold as rhino horn.Frederick Chen, an economist at Wake Forest University, said that there was more than one way to flood a market, however. "Conservation groups tend to clump different strategies under one roof and have a knee-jerk reaction that they have to reject them all," he said. "But the dangers they point out don't apply to all strategies."Chen agreed that introducing a product marketed as an artificial alternative would risk driving up demand for real rhino horn. But covertly introducing a product that passes as real rhino horn but later reveals itself to have some undesirable defect -- horns that deteriorate after purchase, for example, or horns that, when consumed, trigger a stomachache -- could ultimately undermine demand. "If you introduce quality uncertainty into the market, you are trying to create confusion and essentially destroy the rhino horn market," he said.For now, these ideas remain in the realm of theory, and much of that theory goes against real-world evidence suggesting what might happen if the market was flooded with fake horn, said Solomon Hsiang, an economist at the University of California, Berkeley. Hsiang cautioned, for example, that experiments trying to undermine black markets in elephant ivory by selling legal ivory backfired and ultimately led to increased poaching.Engineering fake rhino horn "seems like an elaborate technological approach that is not without potentially serious risk," Hsiang said, when a much simpler strategy would be to focus on targeted demand reduction.According to Lynn Johnson, founder of Nature Needs More, a nonprofit organization that aims to reduce wildlife demand and supply, demand reduction campaigns should focus on top rhino horn users, who are usually wealthy, elite men.Johnson interviewed 20 such individuals in Vietnam and found that they did not fall for fakes: They take measures to ensure their purchase is genuine, including working with a trusted supply chain and requesting the rhino's tail as proof of provenance.They also told her that they view rhino horn as a luxury product that confers prestige. A 2018 study involving 30 Vietnamese rhino horn buyers found that most no longer believed it could cure cancer, a newfangled use that became popular around a decade ago, but they still sought it out as a symbolic final gesture to comfort terminally ill relatives.Belief in rhino horn's traditional medical properties also seems to be on the decline. A survey of 400 people in Vietnam carried out by WildAid in 2016 revealed that 23% thought rhino horn had medicinal value, down from 69% in 2014.But as long as influential people continue to hold rhino horn in high regard, Johnson says that younger and less successful people will also continue to see it as something desirable. "As soon as people can afford the real thing, they'll buy it," she said.Changing the minds of top users, something Johnson and her colleagues are trying to do, is therefore key to quashing demand, she said."I'm a scientist, but you have to know when science won't help," she said. "Calls for fake rhino horn just shows that there's a lack of understanding about the true commercial nature and consumer desire of current demand."This article originally appeared in The New York Times.(C) 2019 The New York Times Company

Студия Sun Records

Здание студии Sun, Мемфис

Где: Memphis, TN 38103, США
GPS-координаты: 35° 8′ 21.29″ N, 90° 2′ 15.64″ W

Диджей радиостанции “WLAY” в Алабаме Сэм Филлипс мечтал о собственной студии с ранних лет, однако своего смог добиться только в 27 лет, переехав в Мемфис: 3 января 1950 года он открыл “Memphis Recording Service”, где не только записывал музыку, но и делал коммерческие записи свадебных церемоний, похорон, торжественных речей и так далее.

Сам Филлипс заявлял, что намерен записывать черных артистов с Юга, которым больше просто некуда было пойти: затея провалилась после первого же релиза - сингла Джо Хилла Льюиса "Boogie in the Park", после чего Филлипс начал активно работать с такими лейблами, как цитадель черного блюза Chess Records и фирма Modern Records, звездами которой были Айк и Тина Тернер, Джон Ли Хукер и Литтл Ричард. Филлипс создавал демо-записи и мастер-ленты для этих лейблов, и именно тогда записал песню Джеки Бренстона "Rocket 88", которую многие считают первой песней в стиле рок-н-ролл. А в начале 1952 года вновь открыл студию, назвав ее “Sun Records”, и записывал опять же все, от Би Би Кинга и Хаулин Вульфа до The Prisonaires - черного вокального квартета, члены которого отбывали срок в местной тюрьме и были временно выпущены на свободу, чтобы записать сингл "Just Walkin' in the Rain" в июне 1953 года. Песня стала хитом и на нее обратила внимание местная газета: не исключено, что именно это обстоятельство привело на студию молодого шофера грузовика по имени Элвис Пресли.

Студия звукозаписи Sun: Здесь родился рок-н-ролл

Остальное, как говорится, уже история: именно под руководством Филлипса Элвис сделал первые и едва ли не лучшие свои записи, но денежные проблемы и невозможность полноценной раскрутки привели к тому, что Пресли был «передан» в более надежные руки компании “RCA”. «У нас на контракте уже были две новые восходящие звезды - Карл Перкинc и Джонни Кэш, когда мы расстались с Пресли. Я не жалею, что продал его контракт. Я считаю, что все вычислить наперед невозможно, даже на полгода», - говорил впоследствии Сэм. Еще одной звездой лейбла стал Джерри Ли Льюис, однако уже к середине 60-х Филлипс записывал песни крайне редко, продал студию в 1969 году другому продюсеру и ушел в гостиничный бизнес и дела нескольких открытых им радиостанций. В 1987 году, через десять лет после смерти Пресли, здание студии вновь открылось для музыкантов: в разное время там записывались U2, Def Leppard и любитель рокабилли и баллад в духе того же Элвиса Крис Айзек (помните его хит “Wicked Game”?). А в 2003 году здание было включено в число исторических памятников: не забывают его и многочисленные поклонники короля рок-н-ролла.


Памятник Фредди Меркьюри

Где: Площадь Place Du Marche, Монтрё, Швейцария

Тело вокалиста группы Queen, умершего 25 ноября 1991 года от СПИДа, согласно его завещанию было кремировано. Первоначально памятник планировали воздвигнуть в Лондоне, однако единственным местом, предложенным для него, стал задний двор художественного колледжа, где учился Фредди, и друзья посчитали это оскорблением памяти великого музыканта. В итоге в пятую годовщину его смерти возле Женевского озера в швейцарском городе Монтре была открыта статуя работы скульптора Ирены Седлецки: на открытии присутствовали отец Фредди Боми Бульсара, Монсеррат Кабалье и коллеги по Queen Брайан Мэй и Роджер Тэйлор. Статуя попала на обложку посмертного альбома группы “Made In Heaven” и быстро стала объектом почитания фанатов со всего мира, а также местом сбора поклонников Queen в День памяти Фредди Меркьюри, который проводится в первые выходные сентября начиная с 2003 года.

Зал Славы рок-н-ролла

Зал славы рок-н-ролла, Кливленд. Фото: 10awesome.com

Где: 1100 E 9th St, Cleveland, OH 44114, США
GPS-координаты: 41°30'30.15" N -81°41'43.80" W

Инициатором создания «Зала славы рок-н-ролла» стал глава знаменитой фирмы “Atlantic Records” Ахмет Эртегюн: по его задумке, членами Зала должны были стать наиболее известные и влиятельные исполнители, продюсеры и другие личности, оказавшим значительное влияние на музыкальную индустрию.

Первая церемония введения в Зал славы состоялась в 1986 года, но какое-то время у Зала не было собственного здания. Его предлагалось поставить то в Нью-Йорке, то в Мемфисе, где гремели студии “Sun” и “Stax Records”, то в Детройте, породившем “Motown Records”, то в Филадельфии, откуда были родом первый исполнитель рок-н-роллов Билл Хейли и передача “American Bandstand”, также пропагандировавшая рок-н-ролл. В итоге победил Кливленд - родной город диск-жокея Алана Фрида, который первым употребил термин «рок-н-ролл» по отношению к записям, крутившимся на его радиостанции.

Музей был открыт 1 сентября 1995 года, на открытии присутствовали, помимо прочих, Йоко Оно и рок-н-ролльщик Литтл Ричард. Здание насчитывает семь этажей, на первом из которых располагается так называемый зал Ахмета Эртегюна с выставками, посвященными корням рок-н-ролла - музыке госпел, блюзу, ритм-энд-блюзу, фолку, кантри и блюграссу, а также ключевым городам истории рок-н-ролла - Мемфису, Детройту, Лондону, Ливерпулю, Сан-Франциско, Лос-Анджелесу, Нью-Йорку и Сиэтлу. При этом тематика выставок не ограничивается рок-н-роллом, затрагивая и родственные стили типа соул-музыки и хип-хопа. На других этажах располагаются выставочные пространства, посвященные отдельным музыкантам и группам, кафе и сцена для выступлений, несколько кинотеатров, транслирующих фильмы по истории рока - одним словом, настоящему любителю музыки скучать здесь не придется!

Парк Виретта или «парк Курта Кобейна»

GPS-координаты: 47° 37' 9.2640'' N 122° 16' 55.7688'' W.

«Парк Курта Кобейна» (таково неофициальное название этого места) - еще один стихийный мемориал, созданный фанатами в парке рядом с домом, где Кобейн покончил с собой. Как и у других кремированных знаменитостей, у Кобейна нет могилы, хотя Кортни Лав, как говорят, захоронила часть его праха под деревом перед домом. Поэтому фанаты приезжают в парк, чтобы оставить подарки для Курта, а заодно и автографы на одной из двух скамеек, где иногда сидел Курт. Увы, все это совсем не по вкусу соседям.

«Это злобный райончик»

«Они крайне ненавидят все это дело, - говорит автор биографии Кобейна «Тяжелее небес» Чарльз Кросс. – Это злобный райончик. Если вы оглядитесь вокруг, вы увидите знаки, на некоторых из них написано «Не нарушать границ владения» по-французски. Так что представляете себе. Говард Шульц, генеральный директор “Starbucks”, жил в одном из домов вон там. Питер Бак из R.E.M жил вон в том доме. Речь идет о наследниках промышленных корпораций, миллиардерах от «Майкрософта» – все они живут в этом районе. Так что одна мысль о том, что кучка нечёсаных парней из Аргентины может прийти сюда на скамейку попить пивка в любой час дня и ночи, вызывает у них бурю негативных эмоций». Власти города также не торопятся увековечивать память Кобейна, вероятно, полагая, что наркоман, выстреливший себе в голову из ружья, вряд ли заслуживает памяти.

Могила Майкла Джексона

Король поп-музыки скончался 25 июня 2009 года на 51-м году жизни, однако похоронен был только в начале сентября, поскольку у родственников певца возникли разногласия относительно места похорон. Один из братьев Джексона Джермейн настаивал на том, что певца нужно похоронить в парке его знаменитого поместья Neverland, однако мать певца Кэтрин Джексон заявила, что Майкл не хотел бы быть похороненным в месте, напоминавшем ему о многомесячном суде по делу о совращении несовершеннолетних. В итоге Джексон был похоронен на кладбище “Forest Lawn”, неподалеку от Лос-Анджелеса, на котором покоятся такие знаменитости, как Хамфри Богарт, Уолт Дисней, Элизабет Тейлор, Кларк Гейбл и Нат «Кинг» Коул. Склеп с изображением трех ангелов, которые символизируют детей певца, скорбящих над могилой отца, принадлежит основателю “Motown Records” Берри Горди - именно на фирме “Motown” были сделаны первые записи семейного ансамбля Jacksons Five.

Закрытый для посещений мавзолей с гробницей Майкла Джексона.

Разумеется, место погребения не могло не стать местом паломничества: уже через год после смерти певца администрация кладбища заявила, что фанаты певца являются для них нежелательными гостями, а возле входа в усыпальницу Джексона будет разрешено находиться только членам семьи, которые обязаны заранее сообщить о своем визите. Смягчились ли столь жесткие требования со временем, пока неизвестно.

Приют “Strawberry Field”

Где: Beaconsfield Rd, Liverpool L25 6DA, Великобритания
GPS-координаты: 53° 22′ 49″ N, 2° 53′ 2″ W

«С утра и до позднего вечера Джон был счастлив, как птичка», - утверждали родственницы Джона Леннона в Ливерпуле во главе с незабвенной тетушкой Мими. Так это или нет, но его детство не было таким уж безоблачным: летний поход в кино, рождественская пантомима в театре «Эмпайр» и пикник в саду детского дома Армии спасения «Земляничные поля». «Как только начинал играть оркестр Армии спасения, Джон начинал подпрыгивать на месте и приговаривать: “Мими, пошли, не то опоздаем“», - вспоминала тетушка Джона. В 1967 году The Beatles выпустили сингл, одна из песен которого называлась “Strawberry Fields Forever”, и вызвали новую волну внимания к этому месту, ставшему еще одним обязательным пунктом посещения истинного битломана. Сам приют был закрыт в 2005 году: сообщалось, что здание и парк вокруг него планируется открыть для публики, а в самом здании открыть учебный центр и постоянную выставку, посвященную истории приюта и песне "Strawberry Fields Forever", однако этого пока так и не произошло.

Стена Цоя

Стена Цоя на Арбате

Где: стена дома 37 по улице Арбат, Москва.
GPS-координаты: 55.751199,37.589872

«Народный мемориал» Виктора Цоя появился в 1990 году, когда кто-то неизвестный вывел на стене дома № 37 по Арбату надпись «Сегодня погиб Виктор Цой». В ответ кто-то приписал: «Цой жив», а со временем на стене появились и другие надписи. «Для хипующей молодёжи стена была ещё и способом коммуникации, своеобразной «цыганской почтой». Здесь оставляли послания для друзей, с которыми не удалось увидеться, и назначали новые встречи», - пояснил художник Вадим Сидоров. Хотя местные жители весьма недовольны регулярными нашествиями фанатов группы «Кино», стена стала одной из самых известных культурных достопримечательностей столицы, а главный архитектор Москвы Сергей Кузнецов назвал ее одним из феноменов уличной жизни и культуры.

«Минуло четверть века, а слава его живёт»

«Наличие в Москве такой стены памяти, настоящего народного мемориала, имеет для меня значение, мне это важно. Когда Вити не стало, казалось, пройдет лет пять и о нём забудут. Но минуло четверть века, а слава его живёт», - говорил отец Цоя Роберт Максимович. Увы, за время существования стены она пришла в неудовлетворительное состояние: инициативная группа поклонников музыканта неоднократно предлагала провести реставрацию стены, но активистам не удалось договориться с собственником здания. Идею реставрации предлагалось вынести на общественное обсуждение с помощью системы электронных референдумов «Активный гражданин», однако сейчас о ней ничего не известно. Тем не менее остается надеяться, что этот вопрос рано или поздно будет решен.

Мемориал Джона Леннона “Strawberry Fields”

Где: W 72nd St, New York, NY 10019, США
GPS-координаты: 40°46'18.59" N -73°58'17.39" W

Трагическая гибель Джона Леннона 8 декабря 1980 года вызвала скорбь во всем мире и стала знамением окончания целой эпохи, поэтому не увековечить его память в городе, где он прожил последние десять лет своей жизни, было бы по меньшей мере странно. В 45-й день рождения Джона, 9 октября 1985 года, мэр Нью-Йорка Эд Кох и вдова экс-битла Йоко Оно открыли в Центральном парке мемориал “Strawberry Fields”: через дорогу от входа в него располагается печально известная «Дакота», на пороге которой был убит Джон. Йоко написала главам государств во всем мире с просьбой прислать растение, камень или минерал, которые могли бы представлять эту страну в мемориале, и на ее просьбу откликнулось сто двадцать шесть государств. В центре треугольного мемориала, спроектированного как зеленая зона, расположена круглая мозаика, в центре которой выложено слово “Imagine” - отсылка к самой известной из сольных песен Леннона. Мозаика — копия сохранившихся полов в разрушенных Помпеях: ее изготовили и подарили парку неапольские мастера. А поклонники Джона регулярно выкладывают на мозаике значок «пацифика», используя для этого лепестки цветов.

Клуб “Cavern” («Пещера»)

Любитель джазовой музыки Алан Ситнер основал клуб “Cavern” после того, как побывал в парижском джаз-клубе “Le Caveau” («Погреб»). Изначально ливерпульская «Пещера» также была джаз-клубом, однако вскоре стала приютом для скиффл-групп, одной из которых были основанные Джоном Ленноном The Quarrymen. В 1959 году Ситнер продал клуб Рэю Макфоллу, который быстро сориентировался в новой моде и стал предоставлять сцену блюзовым и бит-группам: помимо The Beatles там выступала группа Rory Storm And The Hurricanes с Ринго Старром на ударных, а в раздевалке работала будущая певица Силла Блэк. “Cavern Club” быстро стал новой штаб-квартирой The Beatles, а после их взлета там выступали такие звезды, как Rolling Stones, The Kinks, The Who, Стиви Уандер и Элтон Джон. Однако в марте 1973 года клуб был закрыт для строительства ветки метро и засыпан грунтом.

Метро в Ливерпуле так и не появилось, а в апреле 1984 года открыл свои двери новый клуб, собранных из 15 тысяч камней и кирпичей первоначального здания. С тех пор он стал одной из основных площадок легендарного летнего фестиваля музыки The Beatles. А 4 декабря 1999 Пол Маккартни представил в клубе альбом ”Run Devil Run”: концерт, вышедший на DVD, оказался одним из лучших в наследии экс-битла.

«Я чувствую себя дома только когда я в Грейсленде».

«Я чувствую себя дома только когда я в Грейсленде. Это мой дом. Я нигде больше не хотел бы жить», - заявлял король рок-н-ролла Элвис Пресли о поместье, которое он купил за 100 000 долларов в 1957 году. Поместье стало резиденцией Пресли, где он мог жить, совершенно не соприкасаясь с внешним миром, плавать в бассейне, записывать пластинки… Именно там Элвис скончался и был похоронен вместе с родителями - Верноном Пресли и Глэдис Лав Смит.

7 июня 1982 года поместье было открыто для публики вдовой музыканта Присциллой Пресли и стало настоящей Меккой для его поклонников, как можно увидеть, к примеру, в фильме Джима Джармуша «Таинственный поезд». В начале 1980х поместье посетил знаменитый певец Пол Саймон: песня, написанная им под впечатлением от поездки, стала заглавной в альбоме 1986 года “Graceland”, который, в свою очередь, определил направление его деятельности на десятилетия вперед. А в 2003 году сэр Пол Маккартни оставил на могиле своего кумира медиатор, «чтобы Элвис смог сыграть и на небесах».

Могила Джима Моррисона

Где: Кладбище Пер-Лашез, 16, Rue du Repos, Париж, Франция
GPS-координаты: 48.861944, 2.394167

Могила лидера The Doors на кладбище Пер-Лашез занимает пятое место в списке самых посещаемых парижских достопримечательностей: с самого начала поклонники Моррисона «отмечались» не только на месте его погребения, но и на соседних могилах. В 1981 году хорватский скульптор Младен Микулин установил на могиле бюст своей работы и новое надгробие: фанаты и кладбищенские вандалы со временем изуродовали бюст, а в 1988 году и вовсе украли его. В 1989 году Микулин сделал новый бюст Моррисона, а в 2001 году - его изображение из бронзы, однако ни того, ни другого на могиле сейчас нет. Впрочем, видимо, со временем успокоились и рок-фанаты: знаменитый сфинкс на могиле Оскара Уайльда носит на себе куда больше «знаков любви». Возможно, сказался и тот факт, что сегодня могила Джима защищена от рок-вандалов оградой.

Студия звукозаписи Abbey Road Studios и пешеходный переход возле нее

Где: 3 Abbey Rd, Лондон, Великобритания
GPS-координаты: 51°31'32.95" N 0°10'25.24" E

В легендарной студии звукозаписи недалеко от станции метро “St.John’s Wood” записывались “Dark Side Of The Moon” Pink Floyd, “OK Computer” группы Radiohead, первые пластинки Alan Parsons Project, саундтрек к шестому эпизоду саги «Звездные войны», и, конечно же, альбомы The Beatles. Сфотографироваться на переходе, увековеченном на обложке битловского “Abbey Road” - святая обязанность каждого битломана, посещающего Лондон. А вот как к этому относятся водители, которым приходится проезжать знаменитую «зебру», увы, неизвестно.

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 ...

Gilman, Roeder Named 2020 AAAS Fellows

 Cache   

Fred Gilman and Kathryn Roeder

Carnegie Mellon University's Fred Gilman and Kathryn Roeder have been selected fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).

AAAS is the world's largest general scientific society and publisher of several highly regarded journals, including "Science." Fellows are elected by their peers to honor their scientifically or socially distinguished efforts to advance science or its applications. This year, AAAS has elevated 443 of its members with this honor.

Gilman, the Buhl Professor of Theoretical Physics was recognized for his work elucidating the fundamental nature of CP violation and his sustained and successful leadership in the particle physics and cosmology communities.

Gilman has a record of national and international professional service and leadership. Most recently, he served for six years as chair of the committee overseeing the construction of the Large Synoptic Survey Telescope. From 1999 to 2005, he chaired the High Energy Physics Advisory Panel, which advises the National Science Foundation and the Department of Energy (DOE) on setting the nation's priorities for particle physics. For over a decade he was one of three senior advisors designated by the DOE under the U.S.-China Agreement on Cooperation in High Energy Physics. This led to new Chinese facilities and increased collaboration in particle physics experiments in both China and the United States.

Gilman joined the Carnegie Mellon faculty in 1995. He was the head of the Department of Physics from 1999-2008, where he led its growth in emerging fields such as cosmology and biological physics. He was dean of the Mellon College of Science (MCS) from 2007-2016, where he ushered in many new innovations. He was deeply engaged in and actively oversaw the development and implementation of a new MCS Core Education for undergraduate students; introduced a framework for decreasing bias and increasing diversity in recruiting that has been adopted by other colleges at the university; joined with the dean of the College of Engineering to provide seed funding for new interdisciplinary collaborations; and led the construction of a major neurobiology facility while renovating many labs and creating interactive common spaces in the Mellon Institute.

Prior to arriving at Carnegie Mellon, Gilman was the associate director of the Superconducting Supercollider (SSC) and led the physics research portion of the SSC project. He previously spent 23 years as a faculty member at Stanford University.

Gilman's research has focused on the physics of heavy quarks and leptons and on the difference in the behavior of matter and antimatter (CP violation), which in turn is a key component of an explanation of the dominance of matter over antimatter in the universe.

Roeder, UPMC Professor of Statistics and Life Sciences, is being recognized for her distinguished contributions to statistical genetics and genomics methodology, outstanding research in genetics of autism spectrum disorder and contribution to statistical theory for mixture models.

Roeder started her research career in biology but was soon drawn to statistics. According to Roeder, "every question that interested me could only be answered by solving an even more intriguing statistical puzzle." Her first major data project was in DNA forensics, helping to solidify the credibility of this form of evidence in the judicial system.

As her scientific career advanced, Roeder transitioned to developing statistical and machine learning tools for finding associations or patterns in data. She focuses on high dimensional inference problems with applications such as analyzing variation in the whole human genome and how it relates to disease. Her work has contributed to a better understanding of schizophrenia, autism and other genetic disorders.

"My results for mixture models have been used to better understand a broad range of scientific phenomena," Roeder said. "This, for me, is the most satisfying aspect of statistics, when methods you develop are applied to answer important scientific questions."

Roeder holds a joint appointment at CMU, joining the Department of Statistics & Data Science in the Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences in 1994 and the Computational Biology Department in the School of Computer Science in 2004. She also served as the university's vice provost for faculty from July 2015 through June 2019.

Roeder has published more than 150 scholarly articles and was elected to the National Academy of Sciences in 2019. She is an elected fellow of the American Statistical Association and the Institute of Mathematical Statistics. She received the Snedecor Award for outstanding work in statistical applications, the Janet L. Norwood Award for outstanding achievement by a woman in statistical sciences and the Committee of Presidents of Statistical Societies Presidents' Award for the outstanding statistician under age 40.

Roeder previously served as the statistics section chair for AAAS and has played an integral role in organizing conference sections aimed at helping her community improve how statistics are communicated across scientific disciplines, as well as to the public.

"I am deeply honored to receive this recognition by my peers," Roeder said. "I will continue to push the boundaries of statistics to uncover the genetic underpinning of diseases and disorders, like autism, and I will continue to work with my colleagues in other fields to translate these findings into biology and therapeutics."

Gilman and Roeder are among 33 AAAS Fellows who have called CMU home. They will be inducted on Saturday, Feb. 15, 2020 during the AAAS annual meeting in Seattle.

ใครคือผู้ก่อตั้ง Kubernetes และปัจจุบันเขาไปอยู่ที่ไหนกัน?

 Cache   

ตำแหน่งซอฟต์แวร์ที่ร้อนแรงที่สุดในปี 2019 ย่อมเป็นของ Kubernetes ที่บริษัทไอทีสายองค์กรทุกแห่งต้องวิ่งเข้าหา (อ่านบทความ Kubernetes คืออะไร ประกอบ)

เราอาจรู้ประวัติของ Kubernetes ว่าเริ่มสร้างโดยวิศวกรของกูเกิลในปี 2014 หลังจากนั้นคือปี 2015 ยกให้องค์กรกลางคือ Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) ดูแลต่อ แต่ถ้าถามว่าใครคือผู้สร้าง Kubernetes อาจไม่มีใครตอบได้ในทันที

Kubernetes เริ่มสร้างโดยวิศวกรของกูเกิล 3 คนคือ Joe Beda, Brendan Burns, Craig McLuckie ซึ่งปัจจุบันไม่ได้อยู่กับกูเกิลแล้วสักคน พวกเขาทำอะไรกันอยู่ในตอนนี้?

Made in Seattle

สำนักงานใหญ่ของกูเกิลอยู่ที่เมือง Mountain View ในรัฐแคลิฟอร์เนีย แต่กูเกิลมีสำนักงานอยู่หลายแห่งทั่วโลก และผลิตภัณฑ์หลายๆ ตัวของกูเกิลก็ไม่ได้สร้างขึ้นที่ Mountain View เสมอไป (ตัวอย่างที่ชัดๆ คือ Google Maps สร้างโดยทีมงานในออสเตรเลีย)

Kubernetes เองก็เช่นกัน มันถูกสร้างขึ้นที่สำนักงานของกูเกิลในเมือง Seattle ซึ่งเป็นฐานที่มั่นของไมโครซอฟท์

สองคู่หู Joe Beda และ Craig McLuckie เคยเป็นพนักงานของไมโครซอฟท์มาก่อนในยุค 2000s (Beda อยู่กับไมโครซอฟท์ระหว่างปี 1997-2004, McLuckie อยู่ระหว่างปี 2001-2008 และ 2012-2013) ทั้งสองคนโคจรมาพบกันที่กูเกิลสาขา Seattle ราวปี 2013-2014

ส่วน Brendan Burns เคยเป็นอาจารย์มหาวิทยาลัยมาก่อน แล้วย้ายมาอยู่ที่กูเกิล Seattle ตั้งแต่ปี 2008 จึงเป็นแกนหลักอีกคนในการสร้าง Borg ที่ภายหลังกลายเป็น Kubernetes เช่นกัน

ผู้ก่อตั้งทั้งสามคนร่วมกันสร้าง Kubernetes ในปี 2014 และเปิดตัวสู่สาธารณะในปี 2015 หลังจากนั้นก็ถึงทางแยกของแต่ละคน

Brendan Burns ไปไมโครซอฟท์

Brendan Burns ที่ไม่เคยอยู่กับไมโครซอฟท์มาก่อนเลย ลาออกจากกูเกิลในปี 2016 ไปอยู่กับไมโครซอฟท์ (ซึ่งก็ยังอยู่ในพื้นที่ Seattle) ปัจจุบันเขามีตำแหน่งเป็น Distinguished Engineer ของ Azure Container Service (AKS) รวมถึงดูแลงานด้าน DevOps ด้วย

Joe Beda และ Craig McLuckie ไป VMware

ส่วนคู่หู Joe Beda และ Craig McLuckie ลาออกจากกูเกิลในช่วงเวลาไล่เลี่ยกัน (2015-2016) และร่วมกันเปิดบริษัทสตาร์ตอัพ Heptio ในปี 2016 ซึ่งก็แน่นอนว่าทำธุรกิจเกี่ยวกับ Kubernetes

Heptio ถูกซื้อกิจการโดย VMware ในปี 2018 เพื่อนำความเชี่ยวชาญของทีมงานมาช่วยพัฒนา Kubernetes เวอร์ชันของ VMware (PKS หรือ Pivotal Kubernetes Service)

ปัจจุบันทั้งสองคนยังอยู่กับ VMware ในฐานะแกนนำคนสำคัญของโครงการ Kubernetes โดย Beda มีตำแหน่งเป็น Principal Engineer และ McLuckie เป็น Vice President

ทั้งสองคนยังอยู่ในพื้นที่แถบ Seattle เช่นเดิม


          

My Sister's Machine : Wallflower

 Cache   
My Sister's Machine, comme pas mal de groupes de l'époque, ne fut pas qualifié de grunge (mais probablement de metal alternatif) alors qu'il venait pourtant bien de Seattle, allez donc comprendre - et le sera aujourd'hui à fort juste titre, tout comme un Nudeswirl (dont le groupe partage, à sa propre sauce, cette sorte de groove indolent et incandescent à la fois, tout en wah-wah et ondulation), car après tout, est-on davantage ici en terre hard rock que dans un Badmotorfinger, ou chez un... Alice in Chains ?
Car Wallflower (au fait, ce titre-là associé à cette pochette-là, qui me fascinent sans faillir depuis 26 ans : je réalise seulement aujourd'hui à quel point c'est à sa façon une déclinaison du principe poétique derrière Soudgarden et l'album sus-cité), c'est tout bonnement Alice - chopée quelque part entre Facelift et Dirt - qui décide tout à coup que bat les couilles putain, moi aussi je vais me sentir bien, je me mets aux gros pecos et à Corrosion of Conformity et niquez vous bien, putain : moi aussi je vais groover dur et je vous merde.
Inutile de vous dire que je préfère cent fois, à n'importe quoi qu'ont pu sortir les autres balourds sans Layne, écouter ce disque chaud, ambré, moelleux et pourtant râpeux, gorgé de toutes sortes de choses rentrées qui nouent le gosier avec dignité, viril et sensible, dont on ne voit guère de meilleur cousin que Gruntruck, voilà, et qui donne envie de faire dorloter son mal-être par les granuleux rayons d'un soleil opioïde.
Toute cette histoire de grunge, au fond c'est juste une façon journaliste de dire "soulful hard".

stress and fear at being judged

sex toys Take a moment to think before you decide on your Discussion Topic. Obviously you want to get the communities attention, and to have people comment on your discussion. Because it is easy to think a post is spam due to blatant misspellings, incomplete titles, bad grammar, or text speak as the title your thread may be passed over when you had a legitimate topic of conversation for the group.If you create a discussion titled "Anal" vibrators, you are not really asking the community anything. sex toys

animal dildo Do not leave the oven on longer than a minute or two though, you just want it to heat up a bit like a cozy room. When I cover my bread, I like to use a tea towel that is damp from hot water so it can kind of add warmth and moisture while it rising. Plastic wrap also works alright for that.. animal dildo

Adult Toys Let the slick, non greasy formula of this high quality anal lube grease the wheels to some titillating anal exploration. Water based and free of any added dyes, paraben, and glycerin, the premium formula provides a silky smooth gliding texture for maximum comfort, but cleans easily with soap and water. Made in the USA with high quality ingredients.. Adult Toys

animal dildo Similarly, Trump apparently no longer thinks that climate change is a Chinese hoax and has "an open mind to" future discussions. When retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, Trump's apparent choice for defense secretary, told the president elect that he could get more information from a prisoner with a couple of beers and a pack of cigarettes than by waterboarding, Trump said vibrators, fine, he will rethink waterboarding.. animal dildo

animal dildo It was a whole different world in Chicago, a separate self contained world in which the middle class mingled with the lowest down, in which black doctors and lawyers and preachers and schoolteachers strove to establish standards and set realistic expectations for a community that included every type of individual engaged in every type of human endeavor, from numbers kings to domestics, from street players to steel workers, from race heroes to self made millionaires. It was a society which, despite a form of segregation as cruel and pernicious as the Southern kind, could not be confined or defined, a society of which almost all of its variegated members, nearly every one of them an immigrant from what was commonly referred to as South America, felt an integral part. It was a society into which the Cook family immediately fit.. animal dildo

dog dildo The high end butt plug Njoy Pure Plug 2.0 is the most striking model in the Njoy range. Reserved exclusively for more experienced users, this butt plug is not recommended for beginners. Its slightly curved head and rounded shape enable an insertion that gets gradually deeper and sweeter. dog dildo

animal dildo My Hitachi has taken a bit of a back seat to my Fairy massager in terms of direct clitoral stimulation, but it does get its use with this attachment, and I really like the intense stimulation this provides. Internally, this is very strong, and I just love the way the bubbles hit my g spot. There's no denying the Hitachi generates powerful vibrations, and the Jollies Bubbles transmits the vibrations wonderfully.. animal dildo

horse dildo It stimulates the female clitoris with extended ticklers for reaching orgasm, and also effectively prolongs the length and firmness of the male erection.

wholesale sex toys Some contested catches that Kupp may have pulled down, and there was that one play where he could have converted a 3rd down but he didn't have the vision to see that there was no one between him and the sticks so he ran laterally and gave us a chance to close on him. Oh and btw that is another thing that we did incredibly well on defense that those teams probably can't replicate closing in on tackles for no big plays.In any case I do like what you're saying, and I'm also rooting for home field in the divisional round. I guess I'm just a lot more pessimistic on the likelihood of that happening I see it as a miracle scenario.. wholesale sex toys

Tickling Truman is completely watertight and is made of medical grade platinum silicone. This makes him not only very hygienic, but also easy to clean with water and a mild soap.

Realistic Dildo When used for masturbation, this toy is suitable for both beginners and advanced users. Advanced users may find themselves longing for more girth while beginners will enjoy being able to use a firm, smooth toy. When purchasing for use by a partner, it is recommended that you and your partner be aware and conscious of each others' needs before use of this sex toy. Realistic Dildo

dildo It makes me mad when I hear of guys acting like that because it makes the rest of us look bad vibrators, and not all of us are like that. I have a libido as much as anyone, but I'm far more interested in LOVE than sex. If I had to choose between the two I'd choose love. dildo

Adult Toys Soldier's Girl is a TV movie about a man who joins the US army, and falls in love with a transgender nightclub performer. The acting is amazing (Lee Pace is a genius), and it deals with some really heavy themes while still being beautiful, tender, and unexpectedly touching. I watched it simply because it had one of my favourite actors in a unique role, and came away a bit rattled and incredibly grateful I watched it. Adult Toys

wholesale dildos A lot of Canadian landlords really love to play feudal lord with their tenants though. Because they own the property they think it gives them rights to control how the tenant lives their lives and conducts themselves on their properties. It doesn at all and it is because of people like this who do sketchy things to their tenants that the laws are as strict as they are. wholesale dildos

wholesale sex toys The other guy was supportive. Sort of, but I didn't really feel like he was very supportive of my sexuality and what I needed to have good sex he didn't like that I masturbated in order to orgasm and become aroused enough to have comfortable intercourse first, he said that it was like I was off in my own little world. Well, it's pretty hard to feel turned on when I can tell that someone views my needs as an inconvenience and a distraction and when they LICKED MY FACE without asking even though I have very complicated feelings about saliva being somewhat OCDish and that's just an unusual thing to do that you don't just go in for without asking. wholesale sex toys

sex toys Even though it might be a 400 degree oven, as you probably know from sticking your hand in to retrieve something, the air of an oven doesn burn you very fast. However, put a 400 degree piece of glass in some ice or a puddle of water vibrators, and I would bet it cracksGlass dildos are also much thicker than cookware, so internal stresses could develop between inside and outside, leading to a crack. It unlikely to happen at the low temperatures of boiling water, but you also never know if there is already a defect inside the glass that makes it more susceptibleAnother caution when boiling glass: wrap the glass in a dishtowel then place it into the water. sex toys

dog dildo The first three are steady vibrations from low level, which is a very gentle thuddy vibration, to high, which is powerful but not numbing. Setting four is a repeating pattern of one short buzz and one longer one of the high vibration level. Five is a pattern of two short buzzes and one longer, also of the highest vibe intensity. dog dildo

wholesale dildos I think knowing your local market wants/needs is important and something that can easily be lost with centralization of a lot of the processes. Supermarkets have local buyers to avoid this but you definitely run the risk of alienating customers if you try to make the experience too "corporate" or generic/centralized. Local laws/taxes can also be a nightmare that manufacturers can let dealers handle.. wholesale dildos

wholesale sex toys An example of a good (terrible) anti joke would be: "why didn the skeleton go to the Halloween party? Because the skeleton was an asshole." The skeleton being an asshole doesn really mean anything in the context of the joke. Another good (terrible) example is: "what did the fish say to the other fish in the tank? Glub glub." In this one, you expect the joke teller to say something about them being in a war tank. As a hindu, it not that deep for most of us. wholesale sex toys

We have a mutual understanding about how the gifts work for us.

Once you've created a conclusion, you get to act it out. (Ex. You're working late at the office. Some of the vitriol vibrators, as I understand it, against Uncle Ike comes from the owners setting up their first shop smack dab in the middle of Seattle rapidly gentrifying historically black Central District. And then aggressively ignoring any concerns of the existing community. Considering the fact that there are a lot of black folk imprisoned for weed, I think that relevant..

The playwright's comic opportunism doesn't help.

And when the survivors band together to produce a series of "Milton's Got Talent" fund raising shows that we are roundly invited to mock, the play's more serious concerns are contaminated with a farcical off taste dog dildo.

Movies and TV Shows Filmed in Baltimore

 Cache   

Does that scene look familiar? Baltimore is no stranger to the big screen—or to the television set. The city has been the backdrop for many on-screen stories, and also served as a stand-in for New York City and Washington, D.C., among other cities. Below is a selection of recognizable movies and television shows set in Charm City.

Blockbusters Set In Baltimore

”Diner” (1982), “Tin Men” (1987), “Avalon” (1990), and “Liberty Heights” (1999)

Director Barry Levinson set several films in his hometown of Baltimore. The first was “Diner,” which was filmed in the chrome diner that now sits vacant at 400 East Saratoga Street. The building was a central cast member in the film, and also made appearances in Levinson’s “Tin Men” (1987) and "Avalon" (1990), as well as in Nora Ephron’s “Sleepless in Seattle.”

Blockbusters Set In Baltimore

“Pink Flamingos” (1972), “Female Trouble” (1974), “Hairspray” (1988), “Cry-Baby” (1990), Cecil B. Demented (2000), and more

John Waters grew up and still resides in Baltimore, and it’s where he has set many of his films. An itinerary that traces Waters’ filming locations would be incomplete without the Senator Theatre, which is shown in “Cecil B. Demented” and was where many of Waters’ films premiered, as well as The Avenue (36th Street) in Hampden, where scenes from both “Hairspray” and “Pecker” were filmed. While in Hampden you can take a detour to Atomic Books; Waters receives fan mail through this independent shop—you might catch him picking it up!

Blockbusters Set In Baltimore

“Sleepless in Seattle” (1993)

In this romantic comedy, Meg Ryan plays Annie Reed, a Baltimore Sun reporter. The recognizable rowhouse that she lives is located adjacent to Broadway Pier in Fell’s Point. If you stop by in the summertime on a Wednesday evening, you can catch a free outdoor movie as part of Films on the Pier. The Mount Vernon neighborhood is also featured in the film—you’ll easily spot the Washington Monument and the George Peabody Library.

Blockbusters Set In Baltimore

“He’s Just Not That Into You” (2009)

Several Baltimore neighborhoods—including Mount Vernon, Brewer’s Hill, and Federal Hill—star in this romantic comedy. Watch carefully and you’ll spot the Domino Sugar sign, a neon sign that was first illuminated in 1951, as well as Baltimore water taxis, National Bohemian beer labels, and other familiar sights.

Other Scenes Shot In Baltimore

“Runaway Bride” (1999)

Baltimore was a stand-in for New York City in this romantic comedy starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere. The iconic white church from the movie is about a half hour northeast of Baltimore in Glen Arm, and many of the main-street scenes were filmed in Berlin, a small town on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.

Other Scenes Shot In Baltimore

“The Replacements” (2000)

Keanu Reeves and Gene Hackman star in this sports comedy about the fictional Washington Sentinels. Many of the team’s on-field performances were filmed on the Ravens’ home turf, which was called Nextel Stadium but is now M&T Bank Stadium. Oriole Park at Camden Yards also makes an appearance—and it’s where stadium scenes from “Major League 2” were shot.

Other Scenes Shot In Baltimore

“Live Free or Die Hard” (2007)

Die-hard Baltimoreans will recognize that scenes set in the traffic-congested streets of Washington, D.C. were actually filmed in Charm City. At one point, Baltimore’s Battle Monument is clearly in view. The monument commemorates the Battle of North Point and the Bombardment of Fort McHenry during the War of 1812, which inspired Francis Scott Key to compose “The Star-Spangled Banner.” The helicopter chase scene also gives a bird’s-eye view of Baltimore’s central business district.

As Seen on TV

“Ace of Cakes” (2006–2011)

“Ace of Cakes,” one of the highest-rated shows in Food Network’s history, was shot on location in a converted church in Baltimore’s Remington neighborhood. Charm City Cakes, celebrity chef Duff Goldman’s custom cake shop, has since expanded—but the headquarters remains in Baltimore. If you want to learn from the pros, cake-decorating classes are offered to the general public throughout the year.

As Seen on TV

“Veep” (2012–2015)

For four years, this political satire TV series starring Julia Louise-Dreyfus was filmed mostly in Baltimore and other parts of Maryland. Although an entire episode was filmed at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, for the most part Baltimore was made to look like historic buildings—such as the U.S. Capitol—in Washington, D.C.

As Seen on TV

“House of Cards” (2013–present)

Fans of this political drama set in Washington, D.C. will immediately recognize many exteriors that were filmed in Baltimore. Among them are the residence of Frank Underwood (Kevin Spacey), the apartment of reporter Zoey Barnes (Kate Mara), The Washington Herald offices (the Baltimore Sun’s offices), Hotel Cotesworth (The Peabody Conservatory), and more. The Baltimore Museum of Art, Wit & Wisdom Tavern at the Four Seasons, and Tio Pepe restaurant also make appearances on this hit program.

As Seen on TV

“Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives”

TV host Guy Fieri has visited Baltimore on numerous occasions—around 20 restaurants in the city have been featured on his show. Among them are Joe Squared, Miss Shirley’s Cafe, Slainte, Jimmy’s Famous Seafood, and more.

  2. Favorite hobbies:​ I love being outside—hiking, cycling, climbing—and playing ultimate frisbee.​
  3. What is one thing you will never do again? Learn how to drive a motorcycle through trial and error. (Take a class!)
  4. What motivates you to work hard? I love to enable, promote, and empower the next generation of citizens and thought leaders.
  5. If you could choose to do anything for a day, what would it be? Paraglide across the alps (with proper instruction and safety, of course)

Kristiina Hurme
Lecturer, full-time

Education:

B.A. Princeton University
Ph.D. University of Connecticut

Expertise:

I’m a Behavioral Ecologist that has studied parental care, territoriality, male-male combat, vocal communication, mating and courtship in frogs, birds, and fish throughout the Neotropics. In zoos I designed enrichment for monkeys and frogs, and used positive reinforcement to train monkeys and sea lions, skills that I am now using to study wild hummingbirds!

Most fascinating research discovery:

For my dissertation, I studied maternal care in a neotropical frog, Leptodactylus insularum, in Panama. These large frog mommas often care for schools of 1000s of tadpoles in temporary ponds. I found that they reached metamorphosis surprisingly quickly, growing from egg to juvenile froglet in about two weeks! In order to grow and develop so fast, these tadpoles were constantly active and foraging. This activity attracted a lot of attention from predators, such as fishing spiders and herons, and I found that the only schools that survived to metamorphosis had a mother guarding them. These courageous moms not only fought off predators (even my hand!), but also communicated with the schools, guiding them to safe foraging areas. Some males have large and muscular arms with thumb spines (intrasexually selected weapons), and the only males I observed breeding were huge and covered in battle scars.

Accolades:

I received Honorable Mention for the Graduate Student Teaching Excellence Award at the Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Department, University of Connecticut.

Our recent paper on Intrasexually Selected Weapons was selected as the cover of the latest volume (five issues) of Biological Reviews: onlinelibrary.wiley.com/loi/1469185x/year/2019

Extracurricular:

  1. If not a Biology professor, I would bean artist, a zookeeper, a scientific illustrator, a wildlife film maker – something that allows me to observe and appreciate the natural world and share it with others.
  2. What is your favorite book? “My Family and Other Animals”, by Gerald Durrell. Growing up as a young naturalist on a Greek Island – what a dream!
  3. What is your proudest accomplishment? Working as a team with my husband Alejandro. In life, raising our daughters, Sierra and Aurora. In research, training wild hummingbirds to voluntarily drink from intimidating experimental setups, resulting in a stress-free way to measure behavior and physiology. Check out the PBS nature documentary “Super Hummingbirds” for examples!
  4. What are your hobbies? Fencing, anything related to horses, nature photography, exploring nature with two little kids.
  5. What makes you happy? Seeing the “aha” moment in students, sharing a love and enthusiasm for biology and observation of the natural world, showing students cool and surprising animal behaviors, often with the help of David Attenborough!
  6. Why did you choose to work at UW Biology? I fell in love with the department because of how everyone prioritizes excellence in teaching biology and collaborates on assessing how students learn! I am so excited to be in a place where I will be supported and encouraged!

Jeff Rasmussen
Assistant Professor
WRF Distinguished Investigator

Education:

2011, Ph.D., Molecular and Cellular Biology, University of Washington, Seattle, WA
2002, Sc.B., Computational Biology, Brown University, Providence, RI

Expertise:

I am broadly interested in cell and developmental biology, in particular how cells adopt and maintain specific shapes. My lab uses zebrafish to gain molecular and cellular insights into the development and repair of somatosensory neurons, which are some of the largest and most complex cells in the body. Somatosensory neurons build enormous and elaborate peripheral axons that innervate the skin to detect pain and touch. Our current focus is on understanding interactions between these somatosensory axon endings and the various specialized cell types they encounter in the skin.

Most fascinating research discovery:

As a graduate student, I discovered that cells within the worm embryo could fuse with themselves to form tiny, single-cell tubes in the shape of a donut.

Accolades:

2018, Hilde Mangold Postdoctoral Presentation Award, Society for Developmental Biology (SDB) 77th Annual Meeting, Portland, OR

2013—2016, Postdoctoral Fellow, Jane Coffin Childs Memorial Fund

2007—2010, Predoctoral Trainee, NIH Training Grant in Developmental Biology, University of Washington

Extracurricular:

  1. If not a Biology professor, I would be: pursuing something artistic.
  2. What are your hobbies? Playing soccer, running, and eating vegetarian food.
  3. What makes you happy? A sunny day in Seattle.
  4. Why did you choose to work at UW Biology? For the opportunity to work with fantastic colleagues and great students.
  5. What is your morning routine? I make breakfast for my kids, give my daughter a big hug when I drop her off at preschool, run to campus and enjoy a big mug of green tea while thinking about science.
  6. If you could choose to do anything for a day, what would it be? You mean I get to choose my superpower? Teleportation! That way I could visit the Wonders of the World without any lines.

Alejandro Rico-Guevara
Assistant Professor
Walt Halperin Endowed Professor
WRF Distinguished Investigator

Education:

Biologist - Universidad Nacional de Colombia
PhD- University of Connecticut, Miller Fellow- UC Berkeley.

Expertise:

I perform theoretical and empirical research on Behavioral Ecophysics, which I define as the study of organismal mechanisms (e.g. physiology, biomechanics) and their explicit links to biotic and abiotic interactions. My recent discoveries on nectar collection and intrasexually selected weapons revive questions on how animals balance caloric gain and expenditure, and on foraging theory in light of both exploitative and interference competition. I have focused on the most specialized vertebrate pollinators, hummingbirds, and working on such a data-rich mutualistic system opens the door to quantitative (e.g. energetics) and comparative (e.g. other nectarivores) assessments of trade-offs between energy optimality and fighting proficiency in nature.

Most fascinating research discovery:

How hummingbirds actually drink, associated adaptations in their feeding apparatus, and deviations under opposing selective pressures (e.g. bills as weapons).

Accolades (2-4 maximum):

Frank A. Pitelka Award for Excellence in Research, International Society for Behavioral Ecology. behavecol.com/awards-1

Kimberly G. Smith Outstanding Student Paper Award, Organization for Tropical Studies, 7th Annual Competition. tropicalstudies.org/research

Best Doctoral Dissertation, Greg and Mona Anderson Award, Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of Connecticut. eeb.uconn.edu

Best Oral Presentation Award, IV Colombian Zoology Congress (selected among 2000 presentations). vccz.aczcolombia.org

Extracurricular:

  1. If not a Biology professor, I would be: Most likely I would have looked for an occupation that would have kept me in touch with nature and being outdoors: a farmer, a birdwatching guide, a park ranger, a mountain rescue responder, a scuba instructor, something like that. To some degree, I’ve tried all of the above at different stages of my life!
  2. What makes you happy? Being with my loved ones, but it doesn’t really matter what I’m doing (from hanging out in my grandma’s house for lunch, to family fencing being beaten by my in-laws!). Especially treasuring day-to-day unrepeatable moments with my wife, Kristiina, and watching our little fledglings, Sierra Annaleema and Aurora Delta, grow.
  3. Why did you choose to work at UW Biology? Because of the supportive and collaborative spirit, world-class academic excellence, its integrative approaches, the strong emphasis both in research and teaching, its interdisciplinarity, and the tight links with the Burke Museum, highlighting the importance of science communication, among many other reasons!
  4. What is your favorite childhood memory? Going on weekend trips and vacations with my parents and sisters, regardless if it was to stop on the side of the road, or going to the closest river to cook on a campfire, and all the way to when we were able to “meet the sea”. My dad is a naturalist at heart, and we have had tons of fun exploring nature together. I’m a biologist because of him!​
  5. What motivates you to work hard? A deep desire to understand the mysteries of life. Whether that means doing careful lab experiments and developing home-made devices, or spending a lot of time in the field chasing elusive behaviors; the motivation is always to go beyond the limits of our knowledge. And now supporting others to pursue similar dreams!

Adam Steinbrenner
Assistant Professor
WRF Distinguished Investigator

Education:

BS Tufts University
PhD UC Berkeley

Expertise:

My lab studies the plant immune system.  Plants defend themselves from pests and pathogens (bacteria, fungi, herbivores, etc) by detecting molecular signatures of attackers.  We are interested in receptor proteins that recognize different types of pests and how these receptors evolve in both nature and agriculture.  We hope that better understanding plant defenses will inform and inspire strategies to reduce pesticide use and develop sustainable pest control.

Most fascinating research discovery:

In my most recent position at UC San Diego, we identified a plant immune receptor that detects peptides in larval oral secretions (i.e. caterpillar spit).  Interestingly, this receptor gene is unique to the genomes of certain legume crop species such as bean and black-eyed pea, suggesting they have a unique defense strategy against attacking insects.

Accolades:

HHMI Postdoctoral Fellow 2016-2019

NSF Graduate Research Fellow 2010-2015.

Extracurricular:

  1. What is your favorite book? Team of Rivals by Doris Kearns Goodwin, Master of the Senate by Robert Caro, Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoy
  2. What are your hobbies? Running, Hiking, Fermentation + gardening projects at home
  3. Why did you choose to work at UW Biology? UW Biology has an incredibly integrative atmosphere that fits my research style.  I try not to stay too focused on a single topic or technique, but look for links across molecular biology, genomics, and evolution/ecology.  I’m looking forward to growing my lab’s connections in the department and across campus.
  4. What is your favorite childhood memory? My mother was a landscape designer and I grew up visiting gardens and arboretums around Philadelphia.  I especially loved identifying trees and observing them across the seasons.  It is fun to see paperbark maples around Seattle – one of my old favorites from the east coast!
  5. What was your favorite subject in school? History and Political Science.  It is fascinating to learn about other societies, institutions, norms.
  6. What’s the most interesting thing you can see out of your office or kitchen window? The Space Needle view from 5th floor LSB is fantastic​
  7. What motivates you to work hard? Beyond the day to day joy of experiments, it is motivating to know that basic findings in biology can eventually translate into amazing applied breakthroughs.  In a recent example, the set of tools for CRISPR-mediated genome editing originated from observations and experiments in basic microbiology / RNA biochemistry.  The previous generation of genome editing molecules, TALENs, were originally identified from bacterial pathogens of plants that used similar proteins to manipulate their hosts.

Julie Theriot
Professor
Benjamin D. Hall Endowed Chair in Basic Life Sciences

Education: 

BS Biology and Physics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology
PhD Cell Biology, University of California, San Francisco

Expertise

The research of our group explores the mechanics and dynamics of cell self-organization and movement in a variety of cells ranging from bacteria to fish skin cells.  Our current work focuses on three areas:  1) the actin-based motility of intracellular bacterial pathogens such as Listeria monocytogenes, 2) the whole-cell crawling of epithelial cells and leukocytes, and related processes such as phagocytosis in macrophages, and 3) the dynamics of cellular organization in bacteria and diatoms.  A strength of our work is its highly interdisciplinary nature, bridging cell biology, microbiology, and biophysics.  By studying diverse questions in diverse biological systems, using both bottom-up approaches (biochemical reconstitution, single-molecule force measurements, mathematical modeling) and top-down approaches (genetic and pharmacological perturbations, quantitative video-based analysis of cell movement, shape, and mechanical coupling), we aim to develop a broad conceptual understanding of the organizational rules that give rise to large-scale cell structure and coordinated movement.

Wyze says it will 'temporarily' yank people detection from its security cameras in January

 Cache   

One of the best features of Wyze’s budget-priced security cameras is their people detection functionality, but the company just announced that it’s planning on removing the feature—temporarily, it says—next month.

According to an email sent to Wyze cam users on Tuesday, the company says it’s pulling the free people detection feature because Xnor.ai, the Seattle-based, on-device AI company upon which Wyze’s people detection functionality relies, has terminated its lease agreement with the camera manufacturer.

However, Wyze promises to come up with its own people detection feature sometimes next year, and that the feature will still be free once it arrives.

Risk of gestational diabetes mellitus in relation to maternal dietary calcium intake.

 Cache   

OBJECTIVE: The present study sought to examine the association between dietary Ca intake and risk of gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM).

DESIGN: We assessed periconceptional (i.e. before conception and early pregnancy) Ca intake and consumption of foods rich in Ca using an FFQ among 3414 participants in a prospective cohort study. Diagnoses of GDM were abstracted from medical records. We used multivariable generalized linear regression models to derive estimates of relative risk (RR) for GDM and 95 % confidence intervals.

SETTING: A prospective cohort of women in Seattle and Tacoma, WA, USA.

SUBJECTS: Women (n 3414).

RESULTS: A total of 169 GDM incident cases were identified in the cohort (4·96 %). Higher dietary Ca intake was inversely, although not statistically significantly, associated with GDM risk. After adjusting for confounders, the RR (95 % CI) for GDM according to successive increasing quartile of Ca intake was 1·00, 0·63 (0·41, 0·98), 0·66 (0·39, 1·11) and 0·57 (0·27, 1·21), respectively, with the lowest quartile as the reference (P trend=0·131). Compared with women in the first quartile for Ca intake, women in the higher three quartiles (≥795 v./d) had a 42 % (RR=0·58; 95 % CI 0·38, 0·90; P=0·015) lower GDM risk. GDM risk was inversely associated with low-fat dairy (P trend=0·032) and whole grains (P trend=0·019) consumption.

CONCLUSIONS: These findings suggest that higher levels of periconceptional Ca intake, particularly intake of Ca-rich low-fat dairy products and whole grains, are associated with lower GDM risk.

KENT, Wash. — Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos’ Blue Origin space venture is rapidly expanding on several fronts, ranging from its headquarters facility south of Seattle to a new beachhead in the Los Angeles area — within the orbit of its main competitor, Elon Musk’s SpaceX. Just three and a half years ago, Blue Origin’s workforce amounted to 600 employees, and even then, Bezos said his company’s 300,000-square-foot office and production facility in Kent was “busting out of the seams.” Now the employee count is at around 2,500, heading toward 3,500 in the next year. That’s according to a report from… Read More

Anthropology, actually — Kyle Trembley conducts multispecies ethnography in Seattle and India

 Cache   

Kyle Trembley, a third year PhD student in sociocultural anthropology was recently awarded a very prestigious and competitive American Institute of Indian Studies (AIIS) fellowship for his dissertation entitled, "Rattus Hierarchicus: Rats, Caste, Masculinities, and Care in Rajasthan." Kyle will head out to conduct fieldwork in 2020.

What brought you to anthropology?

When I entered college at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign as a first-generation student, I had absolutely no clue what I was doing. I remember when I told my undergraduate advisor of my broad interests surrounding politics, society, and religion in the US and South Asia, he insisted “you should major in anthropology!” That semester, I enrolled in my first anthropology course. However, my advisor failed to inform me that anthropology is a diverse field that includes biological, linguistic, sociocultural, medical anthropology and archaeology. I ended up taking a biological anthropology course on human evolution, and, while interesting, it failed to inspire me to pursue further coursework in anthropology. Instead, I found my broader interests engaged with more deeply in religious studies, which then became my undergrad major. This led me to pursuing an MA at the University of Chicago Divinity School. It was there that I took my first sociocultural anthropology course, the "Anthropology of Religion.” I was instantly captivated by the method of participant observation or “deep hanging out” and the ways I saw anthropologists raise broader theoretical questions from situated experiences and speak to contemporary politics and social issues. From that moment, I decided to pursue further training in anthropology, which ultimately led me to the PhD program in sociocultural anthropology at UW.

How would you describe your field of study/research to a friend who is not in your graduate program?

I would tell them I work in the area of multispecies ethnography, which seeks to understand how nonhumans, such as animals and plants, are entangled within human social, political, and economic systems. Particularly, I study how material relationships between humans and rats in both India and the US intersect with processes of social differentiation along the lines of race, caste, and gender.

What drew you to your topic?

Actually, when I was young, I always wanted to be a zoologist and study nonhuman animals. As I grew older, I became more interested in human politics and religion. While at the University of Chicago though, I first came across and became deeply influenced by literature in anthropology, queer studies, and critical race studies that raised questions surrounding the category of the “human” and the complex relationships between humans and nonhumans. After completing my MA, I spent a year in Jaipur, India as part of a Hindi-language program. During that time, I first travelled to the Karni Mata Temple in Deshnoke, India, which is a popular pilgrimage and tourist site that many often sensationally refer to as “the rat temple.” Seeing the ways that people and rats related there and the various practices of care enacted for the rats instantly made me begin questioning the diverse range of relationships with rats across various social spaces: in Deshnoke, as ancestors and kin but also in the broader laboratory use of rats, rats as pets, and, most of all, rats as pests that must be exterminated.

What’s been your experience so far?

I’ve been privileged to receive a Pilot Research Grant from the University of Washington Department of Anthropology and a Boeing International Fellowship to conduct preliminary fieldwork at the Karni Mata Temple during the summers of 2018 and 2019. Due to these periods of pilot research, I have been able to deepen my relationships with many interlocutors in Deshnoke and raise questions surrounding the complexities of relations between humans and rats there. I have also done small ethnographic projects in Seattle with exterminators, owners, and breeders of rats. Having extraordinary guidance from faculty advisors, particularly Radhika Govindrajan and Maria Elena Garcia, has been beyond instrumental in the development of my project and my thought.

What do you enjoy most about Seattle?

I enjoy having escaped from the frigid Chicago winters that I grew up in. Most of all, I love the greenery and the views of the sound and the mountains.

What’s next?

I’m currently in the process of preparing for my general exams, writing other grant applications for fieldwork, and preparing my research competency paper to officially become a PhD candidate. I will be returning to Deshnoke in late-August of 2020 to begin my extended fieldwork at the Karni Mata Temple.

What advice would you give to your past self about graduate school?

The quarter system moves extremely fast but try your best to move at your own pace. Go slow. Read broadly and widely. Stay creative and experiment with thought. Build community and get involved both within and outside of academic spaces. Don’t be so hard on yourself and do whatever you need to do in order to enact self-care.

Kibbles and Picks 2019 - Week 13

Kibbles and Picks 2019 - Week 13

And look at that – I’m back on top!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Top 2020 Prospects: Colorado Rockies

 Cache   
I had a nightmare the week I was researching the Rockies. In the nightmare, I was a late round pick crushing it in Colorado’s system while “living” on peanuts, eating the cheapest things I could find whenever I had time to find them, and knowing in the depths of my soul that I would never really get a chance to play in Colorado.  Then I woke up and saw Evan White was signing an extension in Seattle, where Jerry Dipoto apparently thinks it’s a good idea to play prospects. The fool.  Anyway, some organizations are fun to think along with and easy to like. Colorado is not one of those organizations.
          

US Colleges Struggle with Increasing Demand for Mental Health Services

 Cache   
More college students are turning to their schools for help with anxiety, depression and other mental health problems. The Associated Press, or AP, reports that many students must wait weeks for treatment or find help outside the campus community as school clinics struggle to meet demand. This is just one of the findings from an AP study of over 30 public universities in the United States. Over the past five years, the number of students in the U.S. higher education system has changed little. Yet on some campuses, the number of students seeking treatment for mental health issues has nearly doubled. This increase has been tied to a better understanding of such issues, along with rising rates of depression and other disorders. Universities have expanded their mental health clinics, but that growth is often slow, and demand keeps rising. Long waits have led to protests at schools from Maryland to California, in some cases following student suicides. In addition, campus clinics increasingly require their mental health specialists to do more work. However, this can lead to tired, “burned-out” employees. Jamie Davidson is associate vice president for student wellness at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. She told The AP her school struggles with large numbers of students who need mental health help. The university has 11 trained counselors for 30,000 students, but her team still finds the work difficult. “You’re never going to talk to anyone in the mental health field who tells you we have sufficient resources,” Davidson said. The Associated Press requested five years of records from the largest public university in all 50 states. A total of 39 provided year-by-year data from their counseling clinics or health centers. The records show that most universities are working to expand their mental health services, but many are simply unable to meet demand. Since 2014, the number of students receiving treatment at the universities has grown by 35 percent. Yet the total number of students attending those schools rose just 5 percent. By last year, nearly 1 in 10 students were coming for help, but the number of trained counselors changed little. That means one counselor for every 4,000 students on some campuses, including at Utah Valley University. Experts suggest at least one mental health specialist for every 1,500 students, but few of the 39 universities met that benchmark. One student’s experience When Ashtyn Aure sought treatment at Utah Valley’s clinic last year, she was suffering anxiety attacks and had not slept for days. Her mind kept returning to painful experiences from her past. When she asked to see a counselor, one worker told her the wait list stretched for months. She left without getting help. “That was the place I was supposed to go. What do you do after that? Do you go to the hospital? Do you phone a friend?” said Aure. In the end, she turned to her religious group, which helped her find therapy at an off-campus clinic. “If it wasn’t for that,” she said, “I don’t know.” Officials at Utah Valley said they are working to avoid such cases. If officials know a student is having serious problems, they said, a counselor can see that person in a few minutes. But workers have only a brief period to make decisions about treatment. “Unfortunately, stories like this are not uncommon,” said William Erb, senior director of student health services at Utah Valley. “We train, review and revise these procedures so that situations like this can be avoided as much as possible.” At most universities, students considering suicide or facing other serious issues are offered help right away. Others are asked to make an appointment. For cases that are not urgent, the wait can last from hours to months, depending on the time of year and the design of the clinic. Many schools that provided data to The AP said it takes weeks to get a first appointment. At Utah Valley, students waited an average of more than four weeks last year. At the University of Washington at Seattle, it was three weeks. During busy times at Louisiana State University, wait times stretched to four or five weeks. To some students, waiting is just a minor problem. But it raises the risk that some young people will give up on seeking treatment, possibly leading to a worsening of their condition. At several universities, students have organized campaigns to improve counseling services. But for mental health cases that are not urgent, some argue that waiting is not necessarily bad — and could even lead to better results. A recent study found greater reductions in anxiety and depression at clinics that provide students ongoing meetings with counselors as opposed to a single meeting when conditions worsen. But under this system, the student might have to wait for a therapist’s caseload to open up. The rising demand for campus mental health care has been linked to many things. Public recognition of the issue has improved, leading more students to get help. Disorders that once prevented students from going to college are no longer seen as a barrier. Some people believe social media fuels anxiety, while others say the current generation of students simply has more trouble dealing with stress. Many universities are now rethinking how they provide help, such as offering more short-term treatment programs. More students are being pushed towards group therapy or classes on dealing with anxiety. Counseling centers offer activities like yoga, and many train students to provide emotional help to one another. Rising demand has also opened doors for businesses promising solutions. Some schools work with services that provide mental health therapy over the telephone or through video meetings. Others urge students to try software programs on their smartphones. I’m Dorothy Gundy. And I’m Pete Musto.   Collin Binkley and Larry Fenn reported this story for the Associated Press. Pete Musto adapted it for VOA Learning English. George Grow was the editor. We want to hear from you.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 Cache   

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Rams crush cardinals 34-7; The Good, Bad and Ugly

 Cache   
Not dead yet. The Rams came off the canvas after an embarrassing blowout loss monday night to baltimore and played their most complete game of the year, crushing the cardinals in the desert 34-7 in a game that was not as close as the final score indicated. The Rams pushed their record to 7-5, dominating on both sides of the ball early and knocked out arizona probably before half, while coming out after halftime and putting the nail in the coffin with two quick td's, one on offense and one on defense. The Rams clearly showed that they are not going to quit, and while this season has certainly been a disappointment, we are really only a play or two away from having a functional playoff caliber season. Alas, a missed kick at the end of the seattle game and a brutal year in the nfc still has us in longshot playoff position, but we are alive for at least another week with a chance to see if we can avenge the early season loss and beat the seachickens at home next sunday night. The Good Total domination. A great team effort. At one point, before total garbage time took over in the fourth quarter, we had 480 yards of offense and they had 81! We had 550 yards in essentially 3 quarters and 27 first downs, holding arizona to 13 first downs, most of which came in total garbage time. D was solid on 3rd down (2-13). Third down was a huge difference today. Goff was great today, albeit against the worst pass defense in the nfl. He wound up 32-43-424 and 2tds with no ints and a rating of 120.7. He was 24-31 and over 300 yards in the first half with a terrific drive right before halftime for a field goal. Made some great throws today and was certainly helped by outstanding pass protection and a solid run game. Nice to see him bounce back and show us all what he is capable of. The td throw at the end to kupp was just perfect and so were a number of other throws. Nice to see us finally use the tight ends. Higbee had a huge day with 7-107 in the first half. Great to see us throwing to gurley in the flat and higbee underneath on third and 4 and 5 rather than always trying to throw deep down the field. I really think the tight ends need to be a bigger part of our offense. Both our guys are very talented, they should get more chances. Woods was sensational. 13-172 with a 50 yard wide receiver screen where he reversed field completely and picked up a nice block by goff converting a third down. Donald had 1.5 sacks, we had 6 sacks as a team (fowler, littleton, brockers half, joseph day) and completely shut down murray who did zero until garbage time in the 4th quarter. Littleton led the team in tackles again and had a sack. Rapp had a pick six. Also had a dropped pick six and another INT that was reversed for a penalty, but a very solid game.
          

Gordon Sondland accused of sexual misconduct by 3 women

 Cache   

Three women — Nicole Vogel, Jana Solis, and Natalie Sept — have accused U.S. Ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sondland, a key witness in President Trump's ongoing impeachment inquiry, of sexual misconduct, ProPublica and Portland Monthly report.

ProPublica and Portland Monthly began reporting the story in October right around when Sondland first testified in the impeachment inquiry. The next day, Nicole Vogel (who owns Portland Monthly but was not involved in the story's editorial process, though she cooperated as a source) addressed her allegations while speaking at a luncheon in Seattle. Vogel said when she met the hotelier-turned-ambassador 16 years ago, Sondland seemed enthusiastic about investing in the magazine. But after she rejected a kiss from him while on a tour of one his hotels, she said he decided not to invest.

Solis, a former associate of Sondland, said the businessman exposed himself to her during a work interaction in 2008 and that she also had to escape another meeting when he again made advances. After that, Solis said, he screamed at her over the phone about her job performance.

Sept, who is 27 years younger than Sondland, said the ambassador was willing to help her land a job in 2010. But he then allegedly tried to kiss her following a meeting and she pushed him aside before leaving in her car. She said she never heard from him about the job again.

Sondland and his lawyer have both denied all three allegations. Read more at ProPublica.

De Marck Zuckerberg a Amancio Ortega: dónde viven y cuánto cuestan las casas de cinco de los hombres más ricos del mundo

La lista Forbes 400 nos ha vuelto a mostrar recientemente quiénes son algunos de los hombres más ricos del mundo. Una lista en la que, para entrar, es necesario tener una fortuna mayor que 2.100 millones de dólares y en la que en 2019 se han mantenido a la cabeza el fundador y CEO de Amazon, Jeff Bezos, y Bill Gates en segunda posición. Los dos, además, tienen otra cosa en común y es que son vecinos. Algo que nos ha llevado a preguntarnos: ¿dónde y cómo viven los que más tienen?

Bill Gates

Thisisbillgates 60404632 167340817604432 397222388008281226 N

La pequeña localidad residencial de Medina en Washington (Seattle) es uno de los códigos postales más ricos de todo el país norteamericano. Allí viven unas 3.000 personas con una renta per cápita media que ronda los 190.000 dólares al año. Siendo así, no es de extrañar que el valor medio de las casas sea de casi 2,8 millones de dólares. La del dueño de Microsoft es tan famosa que tiene hasta su propia página de Wikipedia.

Se trata de una mansión valorada en 127 millones de dólares que se llama Xanadú 2.0 en honor a la del personaje principal de la película Ciudadano Kane y que cuenta con 6.000 metros cuadrados construidos.

Residence Of Bill Gates

En 1998, Gates pagó dos millones de dólares por todo el terreno. A los 300 obreros que trabajaron en su construcción les llevó un total de siete años y 63 millones de dólares construir la casa, fabricada con madera de pinos Douglas de más de 500 años de antigüedad.

Tiene un total de 24 baños, 6 cocinas, diversos aparcamientos con capacidad para 23 coches, una biblioteca con 20 sofás y un salón capaz de albergar hasta 150 comensales en una cena o 200 personas de pie en un cóctel. Todo ello, además, de gimnasio con vestuarios separados para hombres y mujeres, baño de vapor, cine de estilo Art Deco con aforo para 20 personas y una casa de invitados de 176 metros cuadrados, por nombrar algunas prestaciones.

Bill Gates House 2015

La piscina (olímpica) también cuenta con su propio edificio y está dotada con un equipo de sonido que permite escuchar música dentro del agua. Aunque más estrafalario aún resulta que la cama elástica también tenga su propio cuarto, con techos de diez metros de altura, o que la arena de la playa se la traigan todos los años del Caribe.

Jeff Bezos

Jeff bezos

Por su parte, Jeff Bezos ha situado su casa en Medina cerca de la sede central de Amazon y a solo un kilómetro de la de Gates. Se trata de un terreno de más de dos hectáreas que alberga una casa principal de más de 2.600 metros cuadrados y una cabaña de campo de 400. Las dos cuentan con 5 dormitorios y 4 baños. La propiedad le costó a Bezos 10 millones de dólares cuando la compró en 1998, está situada a orillas de lago Washington y cuenta con 94 metros de costa.

Aunque el magnate, cuya fortuna valora Forbes en 135.600 millones de dólares, es famoso también por poseer otras muchas y espectaculares propiedades. Por un lado, tiene una villa de estilo español, de más de 20 millones de dólares, en Beverly Hills (Los Ángeles). Esta mansión dispone de siete habitaciones, el mismo número de baños, pista de tenis, piscina, cuatro fuentes y garaje con seis plazas.

Bezos Beverly Hill

Cambiando de estilo, compró un rancho en Van Horn, Texas, de más de 10.000 metros cuadrados y, en 2017, adquirió la casa más grande de Washington DC, que era un antiguo museo textil reconvertido en vivienda de lujo. Por ella pagó 23 millones de dólares, a los que habría que sumar los 12 que les costó reformarla. La reforma supuso construir 11 habitaciones, 25 cuartos de baño, cinco salas de estar, dos ascensores y un solarium.

Bezos Museo

Además, tiene diversas propiedades en los mejores rincones de Nueva York. Empezó en 1999 adquiriendo tres edificios de apartamentos en el Upper West Side. Una construcción, con espectaculares vistas a Central Park, que es un emblema del Art Decó. La última transacción en Manhattan la ha llevado a cabo este mismo año con un ático triplex y los dos pisos vecinos por 72 millones de dólares. Si el empresario uniera las tres viviendas tendría una sola de casi 1.600 m2 y 12 habitaciones.

Está ubicado en la Quinta Avenida y tiene vistas al Madison Square Park, gimnasio, simulador de golf, sala de juegos y una sala de cine. La vivienda también cuenta con varias terrazas al aire libre. Están decoradas con vegetación en las paredes y disponen de camas balinesas, tumbonas para tomar el sol.

Warren Buffet

Warren Buffett

Warren Buffett es uno de los hombres más rico del mundo. Más concretamente, está posicionado el tercero en la lista de Forbes. Inversor y empresario, su fortuna está valorada en 87.000 millones de dólares. A pesar de ello, vive en la misma casa desde 1958, una mansión, más modesta que las anteriores, situada en un barrio tranquilo de Omaha (Nebraska). Buffett la compró, en su momento, por 31.500 dólares, lo que supone un 0,001% de su patrimonio. Aunque, según datos de Bussiness Insider, en la actualidad estaría valorada en unos 652.600 dólares.

Casa Warren Buffet 4 Jpg 231334169

La vivienda de 610 metros cuadrados, fue construida en 1921 y cuenta con 5 dormitorios, 3 baños, jardín y se encuentra vallada y protegida por cámaras. La razón por la que nunca se ha mudado es, como él mismo declaró en una famosa declaración recogida en un documental de la BBC, porque en ella es feliz y solo se mudaría si pensara que en otro lugar iba a ser más feliz.

Mark Zuckerberg

Zuck 13285280 1736055476633086 1416897415 N

La casa de Mark Zuckerberg, el cuarto en la lista Forbes 400, es una propiedad de 500 metros cuadrados, más sencilla que las de Bill Gates y Jeff Bezos. Se encuentra en la exclusiva zona de Edgewood Drive, en Palo Alto (California), a menos de 10 minutos en coche de la sede de Facebook en Menlo Park.

Casa De Mark Zuckerberg 768x576

Zuckerberg la adquirió por 5,6 millones de dólares en 2011. Una compra a la que ha ido sumando las casas que la rodean por motivos de privacidad y para poder decidir personalmente quiénes son sus vecinos. Se trata de cuatro casas por las que pagó 24 millones de dólares.

Interior

Dispone de cinco habitaciones, la misma cantidad de baños y una piscina de agua salada. Aunque una de las partes más atractivas de la casa es su perímetro ya que dispone de un gran jardín al aire libre, ideal para organizar fiestas y eventos.

Mark Zuckerberg House Palo Alto

El interior de la casa se compone de suelos de madera y muebles sencillos y tradicionales, con una decoración bastante austera. No obstante, a pesar de su sencillez, la vivienda cuenta con un pabellón de entretenimiento, chimenea, barbacoa y spa.

Amancio Ortega

Amancio Ortega

Según el ránking de las personas más adineradas del mundo que realiza anualmente Forbes, Amancio Ortega es el sexto hombre más rico del mundo y la primera fortuna de España.  La misma publicación ha estimado su fortuna en 63.200 millones de euros. No obstante, el empresario es conocido por su estilo de vida relativamente sencillo. Un reflejo de ello se encuentra en sus propiedades.

Tras su separación de Rosalía Mera en 1986 se instaló en un dúplex con vistas a la playa de Orzán en el barrio de clase media de Zalaeta (A Coruña). Un barrio al que se le conoce popularmente como "Zaraeta" por el gran número de ejecutivos y mandos intermedios de Inditex que viven en él.

Actualmente, Amancio Ortega reside en su casa de O Parrote, también en el centro de A Coruña, donde se celebró la boda de su hija Marta con Carlos Torretta. Se trata de un edificio de cuatro plantas, con una superficie construida de más de 3.000 metros cuadrados, que data de principios del siglo XIX y que fue rehabilitado por el empresario.

Vista Aerea De La Zona Donde Estan La Casa De Ortega Y El Club Nautico Google

Con un singular valor arquitectónico por su amplio frente, sus inmensas puertas de arco y por sus tres galerías, es uno de los edificios que conforman la emblemática fachada marítima de galerías de A Coruña. Además, Amancio Ortega cuenta también con una residencia familiar en el Pazo de Anceis, en una zona rural a las afueras de la ciudad.

Jmrey42 50682948 209093873384917 8996150897976296470 N

No ha trascendido por cuánto dinero podría haber adquirido el empresario sus propiedades pero la zona de O Parrote es conocida por tener los alquileres más caros en el centro de la ciudad. Según un estudio de la Federación Galega de Empresas Inmobiliarias el precio por metro cuadrado del vecindario casi duplica la media de la ciudad de 7,3 euros.

Mystery Sounds From Storms Could Help Predict Tornadoes

 Cache   
Mysterious rumbles that herald tornadoes could one day be used to predict when and where they will strike, according to researchers. From a report: Storms emit sounds before tornadoes form, but the signals at less than 20Hz are below the limit for human hearing. What causes these rumbles has also been a conundrum. Now researchers said they have narrowed down the reasons for the sounds -- an important factor in harnessing the knowledge to improve warnings. "The three possibilities are core oscillations [in the tornado], pressure relaxation, and latent heat effects," said Dr Brian Elbing, of Oklahoma State University, who is part of the team behind the research. "They are all possibilities because what we have seen is that the signal occurs before the tornado touches the ground, continues after it touches the ground, and then disappears some time after the tornado leaves the ground." The latest work was presented at the annual meeting of the American Physical Society's Division of Fluid Dynamics in Seattle. The low-frequency sound produced by tornadoes has been known about for several decades, but Elbing said a big problem has been a lack of understanding of what causes the sounds, and difficulties in unpicking them from a tornado and other aspects of the weather. The subject has seen renewed interest in recent years, with Elbing saying it could prove particularly useful for hilly areas such as Dixie Alley, which stretches from Texas to North Carolina. "Infrasound doesn't need line of sight like radar, so there is hope that this could significantly improve warnings in Dixie Alley where most deaths [from tornadoes] occur," he said.

No NAFTA 2.0 vote until it’s fixed

 Cache   

 

As Washington prepares to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the 1999 World Trade Organization protests in Seattle, a move is afoot in the other Washington to pass another “free trade” agreement that makes the same mistakes as its predecessors by putting corporations at the center of the deal, and not working people.

Last week, a group of Democrats attempted to pressure House leaders to bring President Trump’s U.S. Mexico Canada Agreement (USMCA), a deal intended to replace the failed NAFTA, up for a vote. While progress is being made to improve this agreement, the AFL-CIO’s position on the USMCA remains unchanged: Congress should not put the deal to a vote until the fixes America’s unions have insisted upon are incorporated into the final agreement.

TAKE A STAND — It’s not clear whether any of Washington’s Democratic congressional delegation was among those pressing for a vote to pass this new NAFTA, but the AFL-CIO is urging all union members to call members of Congress at 1-855-856-7545 and tell them: No vote until NAFTA is fixed. (Download, print and share this flyer urging others to do the same.)

“Our allies on Capitol Hill understand that getting this done right is more important than getting it done fast,” said AFL-CIO President Trumka as the Trump White House and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce try to rush a vote on the new NAFTA. “So until the administration can show us in writing that the new NAFTA is truly enforceable with stronger labor standards, there is still more work to be done.”

Trumka is reportedly meeting with congressional Democrats today to make that clear.

BACKGROUND — Trade relationships can be an opportunity to strengthen democracy, stimulate economies and uplift the well-being of working people here and around the world. But, they can also be used as a way to harm and undermine us. For a generation, corporations have used trade deals to rig the rules of the economy in their favor, at the expense of working families.

Now, the conversation around trade is changing. We shouldn’t be talking about minimizing the collateral damage of corporate trade deals. We should be talking about how to write agreements that actually advance our interests.

NAFTA isn’t broken. It’s done exactly what it was meant to do. It’s exploited workers in Mexico, and disrupted lives here in the United States. It’s taken money out of workers’ pockets and put it in the hands of a few billionaires.

So, the solution can’t be a new NAFTA. It can’t be a rebrand or a sliver of change. The only answer is to include a strong enforcement mechanism for raising wages and protecting the rights of working people.

This renegotiation process is an incredible opportunity. It’s a chance to secure that kind of change — to create trade policy that truly prioritizes working families. Unfortunately, that has not yet happened. As it stands, this agreement is nothing more than NAFTA with some pluses and minuses. But, there’s still a chance to make it work for working people. Here’s how that can happen:

  • Mexico must show it can fund and implement long overdue labor reforms allowing workers to form real unions and negotiate better wages and working conditions. Passing laws isn’t good enough.
  • The agreement’s labor standards and enforcement provisions need to be dramatically strengthened. The International Trade Commission’s recent report confirmed what we already knew: without a way to hold all three countries accountable, this deal isn’t worth the paper it’s written on.
  • The administration needs to loosen pharmaceutical corporations’ death grip on prescription drug prices. The current deal would hand Big Pharma a guaranteed, continent-wide, decade-long monopoly over life-saving medicines, locking in exorbitant prices. These provisions must be removed.
  • The deal must strengthen rules of origin for all manufacturing sectors and allow country-of-origin labeling for agricultural products.

This deal is incomplete. A vote would be premature. And any effort to force it through as is will be met by nationwide opposition from the labor movement.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

AR-Sen: On Monday, state Democratic Party chair Michael John Gray said that the party couldn’t find a “viable path” to get a new candidate on the ballot in the weeks since their only Senate contender, Josh Mahony, dropped out hours after the filing deadline.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Monday, Nov 25, 2019 · 11:03:08 PM +00:00 · David Nir

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

[SE26] Technology & Filmmaking: Form Following Function

 Cache   

It's NAB this week, and we have a new technology and filmmaking episode you must hear before you spend a dime!

Because the nature of this show involves taking bits and pieces of longer episodes, I have a veritable vault full of as yet unmined content from fantastic interviews. In honor of it being NAB this week (that annual mecca to Las Vegas for media professionals all over the world), we have as yet unaired excerpts from interviews I conducted last season.

Peabody award-winning filmmaker and documentarian Elaine McMillion Sheldon, who won that acclaimed award for her interactive documentary experience "Hollow", chimes in on how the architectural design concept of "form following function" should be applied to storytelling and technology. Also, Seattle Film Institute executive director David Shulman uses makes an appearance with an example of how a master's approach to filmmaking can be applied to our use of the latest and greatest. And it all starts with a simple (or not so simple) question asked by my 12-year-old aspiring filmmaking son.

A Special Announcement About the Future of the Show [FJ25]

 Cache   

Today I bring you a special announcement about the history, and more importantly, the future of the show.

September 1, 2016, marks the 1-year anniversary of Radio Film School's official premiere. It's been quite a year. Since launching, we've been #1 in our podcast category on iTunes, have been on iTunes New and Noteworthy (we still frequently make it into the top 50), named by No Film School as "the filmmaker's podcast we've all been waiting for", and this summer, Cinema5D named us one of the top 5 filmmaking podcasts to binge listen during the summer. As we approach the beginning of season 2, I want to share some thoughts I have about what we've been able to accomplish, where we're going, and other important changes you'll want to know about if you're a fan.

Alfred Hitchcock: Anatomy of a Genius [FJ17]

 Cache   

There are few filmmakers in the history of the craft who are as revered for their work, and as associated with a particular style, as Sir Alfred Hitchcock.

Hitchcock's work is so distinctive, his name has become an adjective to describe a well-executed, suspense thriller or drama (e.g. David Fincher's "Se7en" is a Hitchcockian thriller filled with mystery, murder, and suspense-filled thrills worthy of the master of suspense himself.)

No doubt that if you're passionate about filmmaking and cinema, you've seen plenty of interviews and/or video essays about Hitch. But as usual, my hope is to share some insight that you might not have heretofore come across.

This week's episode is chock full of experts:

Technology & Filmmaking: This Is Not Your Mother's NAB Wrap-up [FJ15]

 Cache   

Last month we had one of the most attended NAB Shows ever. But in true Radio Film School style, our "coverage" of it won't be what you expect.

The National Association of Broadcasters (aka NAB) had its annual expo and convention last month. There were over 100,000 people in attendance. And as is the case every year, NAB was the place to find all the most anticipated tech, tools, and toys that will be the next, over-hyped "game-changer." This week on the show we're going to talk about technology and the role it plays in the lives of storytellers and filmmakers. But if you are expecting a run-down of the latest and greatest cameras, drones, lenses, microphones, digital recorders and capture cards, I'm sorry to disappoint you. You won't find that here.

However, if you enjoy a deeper conversation about technology and how we as filmmakers relate to it, the good and the bad, then sit back, relax, and enjoy the show.

This week we hear from:

A Brief History of Cinema | A Circa Podcast Collaboration [SE13]

This week we premiere our first podcast collaboration with the Circa Podcast as we look at a history of cinema.<img title="Read more..." src="data:image/gif;base64,R0lGODlhAQABAIAAAAAAAP///yH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7" alt="" data-wp-more="more" data-wp-more-text="" data-mce-placeholder="1" />

Last summer when interviewing David Shulman, executive director of the Seattle Film Institute, we got into a lively discussion about how the history of cinema, in many ways, has come full circle. I wanted to explore this idea, so I enlisted the help of Zac Lovelace, creator and host of another 6-month old podcast, Circa. I like to call Circa "the 99% Invisible" of history. Zac describes it like this: a podcast about the stories lost in time, and how they can help us understand ourselves better.

Today's show delves into the rich beginnings of cinema (starting with Thomas Edison and the Lumiere Bros) then takes us through the advent of television, and finally ends up at the smart phone. Zac's storytelling style is immersive and engaging. You'll immediately know why I chose Circa as a collaboration partner on this episode.

After the credits there is one of the funniest bonus segments we've had. So be sure to stick around for that too.

Women in Film Pt. 3: What Role do Women Play in Their Own Prosperity

 Cache   

This week we continue our Women in Film series with part 3: "What role do women play in their own hindrance or advancement in the business?"

I honestly believe this is one of the most important episodes I ever have, or will, publish. I strongly feel this episode should be heard by everyone woman in the industry. Heck, I think it would be great for women in any profession to hear from the various guests on the show today. We have a full slate of women at the top of their game in their respective fields.

First, we bring back my 4-person panel in Seattle: Scilla Andreen (CEO of IndieFlix), Stefanie Malone (executive director of NFFTY), Ryan Davis (co-founder of Smarthouse Creative) and Nancy Chang (executive director of ReelGrrls). I also speak to Nichelle Protho, VP of the television and online video production company Sander/Moses; Lauren Haroutunian, dean of Freddie Wong's Rocket Jump Film School; and the director of the interactive documentary "Hollow," and co-host of the She Does Podcast, Elaine McMillion Sheldon. We also hear from Universal Pictures Chairman Donna Langley and 20th Century Fox co-chairman Stacey Snider, in excerpts from Hollywood Reporter's studio executive roundtable; and Sheryl Sandberg in a clip from the TED Radio Hour has some poignant commentary as well.

Oh, and I contribute a few halfway-decent comments now and then too. :)

RFS007 Mind Your Masters Pt. 2 - Invisible Influences

 Cache   

Today we continue our discussion - should filmmakers of today study the masters of yesterday?

When we left off on this discussion, we heard from a wide range of filmmakers (and a photographer) that studying the masters was important. Today we hear from a wide range of filmmakers (and a photographer again) who will give insight into 1) why it’s important to study the masters, and 2) the issue of copying. We'll hear from David Shulman, Director of the Seattle Film Institute, Julieanne Kost (Adobe's leading Photoshop evangelist), my film school prof, Zaki Lisha of De Anza College, and the director of the interactive documentary "Hollow," Elaine McMillion Sheldon.

RFS006 - Mind Your Masters Pt. 1 & Women in Film

 Cache   

Do up-and-coming filmmakers of today really need to study the masters of yesterday? Also, we begin our "Women in Film" series.

About five years ago I wrote a blog post posing the question, "Should young filmmakers of today study the masters?" It generated a lot of great debate and conversation. That question has always sat with me, particularly now in an age where YouTube celebrities gain millions of views with little to no formal filmmaking education (let alone film history). So, what value, if any, is there to know the work of master filmmakers like Kurosawa, Hitchcock, Ford, Ophuls or Chaplain? This week we hear from six filmmakers and one master photographer on the topic.

Women in Film

Today we also formally begin our "Women in Film" series as we hear an excerpt from a 4-person panel I conducted on the topic. Is that fact that I even have to make a special "series" a problem in itself?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Spies really are everywhere, including Twitter

 Cache   


One of my classmates in business school was a Saudi woman. She was from a very well to do family but not, as far as I know, part of the royal family. After graduation, she stayed in the States. There was no way she could have had much of a business career if she’d gone home.

Saudi Arabia: no country for women, young or old.

It’s also no country for dissidents. male or female, young or old. Those who oppose “reformer” Mohammed bin Salman routinely end up imprisoned and tortured. In the case of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, it was torture, death, dismemberment…

Social media has afforded Saudi dissidents some element of “freedom” but, of course, the Saudi government invests in spying technology – and in spies - to try to sleuth out who’s saying what under cover of Facebook or Twitter anonymity.

And they’ve apparently gotten Twitter employees to help them figure out who’s tweeting anything that they perceive as against their regime.

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

The Twitter employees – both former employees – used “their employee credentials to gain access without authorization to certain nonpublic information about the individuals behind certain Twitter accounts.”

One of those ex-employees is Ahmad Abouammo, 41, of Seattle.

Now for all I know Ahmad Abouammo is the John Smith of Arabic names. And Seattle may be crawling with Ahmad Abouammos who are social media gurus who used to work for Twitter. But there is someone (still) on Linkedin who fits the bill, and his tagline is:

I build digital brands

Indeed.

Currently, Ahmad is the cofounder of a startup that focuses on redefining social media. Previousl [sic: the “y” is missing] Ahmad led branding and content strategy for multiple orgs in Amazon, developing and implementing strategic digital media and marketing at scale. Prior to Amazon, Ahmad was Head of Middle East and North Africa at Twitter, where he successfully helped launch Twitter in the region and drove users growth and content, making the Middle East the fastest growing market on Twitter.

So, he “successfully helped launch Twitter in the region and drove users growth and content…” Hmmmm.

In addition to being charged with “acting as [an] illegal agent of a foreign government,” the feds claim that Abouammo messed around with records that their investigation was after. Not a good look.

According to Abouammo’s Linkedin profile:

His time in the region enabled him to build a strong, comprehensive foundation of the region and how brands can transcend boundaries by understanding, contextualizing and adapting. Ahmad endeavors to forge stronger relationships between brands and consumers and transform and build brands for digital age. He is heavily influenced by creative art, innovative design, and social connections.

Well, the Saudi brand – other than in the White House – is pretty awful. But maybe that’s just me and my unwillingness to “transcend boundaries by understanding, contextualizing and adapting.”

But I’m struggling to see how, in giving Saudi agents information that puts dissidents at risk, he is helping “forge stronger relationships between brands and consumers.”

I do get how Abouammo is heavily influenced by social connections, especially  bad actors who got him to play footsie.

It’s one thing for those of us in free societies to wing something off in 280 characters worth of Twitter without having to worry about being rubbed out by our government. (For now, anyway.) But if you’re in a terrible place like Saudi Arabia, it’s very risky. And that risk is heightened when a malign government gets social media insiders to help them do their dirty work.

Omar Abdulaziz, a Saudi dissident exile living in Canada, is suing Twitter, claiming that Twitter never bothered to tell him that his account had been hacked. (The person Abdulaziz believes is responsible is not Abouammo but, rather, one of the other men charged.)

Abdulzaia, in his filing:

…claimed the hack led Saudi agents to discover plans for a social media protest that he was planning last year with Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi. Months later, Khashoggi was slain in the Saudi embassy in Istanbul.

Aboudammo appears to be from Lebanon, not Saudi Arabia. Maybe he got duped (or blackmailed) into giving up confidential information that’s put others at grave risk.

On his personal Twitter account (dormant for a year now), he bills himself as a “social media preacher” and “digital believer.”

Something tells me that his career as a digital believer, building digital brands, is about to come to a crashing halt.

Career suicide is always painful to see…

12 Erroll Garner Albums Reissued in Octave Remastered Series

Image

Fans of pianist Erroll Garner (1923–’77) have rejoiced in recent years, as reissues and new titles have shone a spotlight on the work of the legendary Pittsburgh native. The resurgence continues with the 12-album Octave Remastered Series, a joint effort between Mack Avenue and the Garner estate. The dozen albums—each of which has a previously unreleased bonus track—are newly restored from analog masters of releases from the 1960s and 1970s. The series represents a treasure trove for Garner fans and completists.

The first four titles in the series—Dreamstreet, Closeup In Swing, One World Concert and A New Kind Of Love—were released Sept. 27. The series will continue, with one album released per month—A Night At The Movies, Campus Concert, That’s My Kick, Up In Erroll’s Room, Feeling Is Believing, Gemini, Magician and Gershwin & Kern—leading up to the kick-off of Garner’s centennial celebration in June 2020, concluding on his 100th birthday in June 2021.

The master tapes for all 12 albums were transferred and restored using Jamie Howarth’s Plangent Process playback system, which removes machine noise and unwanted fluctuations from the original analog recordings. “The experience of it is more like you’re listening to Garner through the monitors in a professional studio, rather than listening to him off the tape copy,” said Peter Lockhart, senior producer of the project and vice president of Octave Music.

Lockhart originally began working on the Garner archives in 2015 with pianist Geri Allen, then director of jazz studies at the University of Pittsburgh. “Geri was our creative center and our ‘North Star’ in terms of the Garner project,” he said. “After she passed [on June 27, 2017], we were trying to figure out where to go from there. Geri had introduced us to Christian Sands after a three-piano Garner tribute they did with Jason Moran at the Monterey Jazz Festival in 2015, so we started talking to Christian. Then early last year, he became our creative ambassador. Christian is very passionate about performing Garner’s music in concert with his High Wire Trio, and he’s been a great ambassador for the Garner project.”

In 1959, Garner successfully sued Columbia Records to remove an album the company had released without his permission. Garner and his manager, Martha Glaser, subsequently founded and launched Octave Records, whose 12 releases make up the Octave Remastered Series.

The reissue of Dreamstreet contains the bonus track “By Chance,” an engaging, medium-tempo Garner original, while Closeup In Swing includes “Octave 103,” another original that showcases the pianist’s impeccable sense of time. One World Concert, recorded in Seattle at the 1962 World’s Fair, includes the hauntingly beautiful Garner ballad “Other Voices,” and A New Kind Of Love, featuring the pianist with a 35-piece orchestra, includes a new trio version of “Paris Mist.”

Lockhart explained that many of Garner’s spontaneous intros to tunes on the live recordings were cut to fit the time limitation of the LP format. Those same off-the-cuff intros have been restored for the new releases. “For instance, there’s an extra minute of an introduction for ‘The Way You Look Tonight,’ an extended introduction for ‘Sweet And Lovely’ and a really amazing one for ‘Mack The Knife,’ where he goes through these progressions and modulations that are really hip and that no one’s ever heard before.

“It’s such a unique catalog,” Lockhart continued. “There are so few artist-owned catalogs that are this important and this large and have so much unexplored material to work with. And it’s not just the music but a million pieces of paper—all of his telegrams and correspondence, contracts, pictures, and then there’s his clothing, jewelry, artwork. There’s so many things to explore, and we’re trying to encourage more people to go to the [Erroll Garner Archive at the University of Pittsburgh] and engage in scholarship about his life and his work.”

Gordon Sondland Is Reportedly a Sexual Harasser Who Reportedly Cherishes the Photo He Took With George W. Bush's Dog

TFW you want a hug.
TFW you want a hug. U.S. MISSION TO THE EUROPEAN UNION

A new article from Portland Monthly and national investigative reporting outlet ProPublica reveals a new side of local-billionaire-turned-ambassador-turned-impeachment-doofus Gordon Sondland. According to the Monthly's and ProPublica's reporting, Sondland has a habit of making unwanted sexual advances on women he works with—and retaliating after they reject him.

The article recounts the experiences of three women who worked with Sondland in Portland, all of whom bravely chose to make their full identities public. The women's ages, work fields, and relationships with Sondland all vary, but they share one thing in common: When Sondland managed to get them alone, he allegedly attempted to get physical with them.

One of these women is Jana Solis, an insurance executive who met with Sondland in 2008 to discuss a potential business relationship between Solis' insurance firm and Provenance Hotels, Sondland's hospitality company. After a professional lunch, Sondland reportedly called Solis his "new hotel chick," slapped her on her ass, and told her he looked forward to working together.

Next, Sondland invited Solis to his West Hills home so he could show off his art collection to her. Here's what happened next, according to the Portland Monthly/Propublica piece, which you should absolutely read in full:

"The two toured Sondland’s home in Portland’s exclusive West Hills... And then, she recalls, he told her there was even more of his collection to see in the pool house. She’d meet him there, she said, excusing herself both to go to the bathroom and map out a potential exit strategy.

'I get out to the pool house, and he is now naked from the waist down,' Solis remembers. 'He said something about, "I thought we could chat." And I said something, trying to keep his ego intact — not that he needed that, not that it wouldn’t have been anyway — I said something like, "I can’t have that conversation."'

That wasn't the end of Sondland's and Solis' interactions—he also shoved his tongue down her throat inside his hotel penthouse in Seattle—but their working relationship soon ended after Sondland called Solis to scream at her.

The other two accounts come from Nicole Vogel, the publisher of Portland Monthly, and Natalie Sept, a former staffer for Portland Commissioner Nick Fish. Fish said he was "outraged" by Sondland's alleged behavior in an online statement, and said he had donated $1,500 to Call to Safety, formerly known as Portland Women's Crisis Line, to make up for the $1,500 campaign donations he received from Sondland in 2008 and 2009.

Both Vogel's and Sept's stories have the same broad framework of Solis' story: What begins as a friendly business relationship soon escalates into one-sided sexual advances, ending in a cruel about-face from Sondland after he's rejected.

There's nothing surprising about the fact that a man who would jump at the chance to buy a position in Donald Trump's administration is an alleged workplace sexual harasser. (I suppose I should note here: Sondland fully denies all allegations of misconduct.) There's also nothing funny about the situation Sondland reportedly forced these three professional, accomplished women into. But there are a few funny, telling pieces about Sondland here that I personally will be chewing on for weeks:

• "The hotelier showed off pictures of himself with then-President George W. Bush and Bush’s dog."

• "He initially supported Jeb Bush’s presidential campaign." (Editor's note: please clap.)

• Sondland brought not one, but two of the women to El Gaucho, a fancy Portland steakery whose food looks like barf (thanks, Yelp!).

• Sondland apologizes for allegedly exposing his penis to a female colleague with the line "Sorry I was such a dud.”

• Like every creep you've ever known in this life, every past life, and every parallel universe, Sondland loves using the phrase "Can I have a hug?"

Anyway, I've said it once and I'll say it again: read the whole article. Happy Thanksgiving!

The 31 Best Things to Do in Portland This Week: Dec 2-5

 Cache   
by Mercury EverOut Staff

Hello, December 2019. It looks like you're getting off to a very lively start so far, and Portland is definitely benefitting from a whole bunch of amazing Things to Do this week, including the start of the Holiday Ale Fest, another installment of the I, Anonymous Show, the Christmas Ships are coming through, and (checks notes) KENNY G IS HERE!?!? As always, that's only the BEGINNING—hit the links below and plan your week accordingly


Jump to: Monday | Tuesday | Wednesday | Thursday

Monday, Dec 2

Battles, Palm
Of the experimental New York foursome that were Battles, only two remain: Ian Williams and John Stanier. No, they didn’t actually battle each other (although they should say they did). It’s funny to think of their 2006 track “Tras”—which sounded like a metal song that became a math equation—as this group’s hit single, but that’s what we were nodding our heads to on the way to shows. Over the past few albums, Battles has fooled with incorporating vocals into their complex and symmetrical “bleep bloop” compositions, and on their new album Juice B Crypts they include one-off collaborations with singers like Xenia Rubinos, rappers like Shabazz Palaces, and groups like Tune-Yards. But I still like their instrumental tracks like “A Loop So Nice” best. (Mon Dec 2, 8 pm, Hawthorne Theatre, $20-25) SUZETTE SMITH

Takács Quartet
The folks at Friends of Chamber Music have been welcoming world-class players to Portland for more than 75 years, and tonight and tomorrow, they host four of the best with a sublime program tucked up their collective sleeve. The Takács Quartet, having performed in legendary concert halls around the globe for several decades, is what's known in certain classical music circles as "the shit." (Mon-Tues Dec 2-3, 7:30 pm, PSU Lincoln Performance Hall, $32-57) BRIAN HORAY

Daughters, Lingua Ignota
It almost goes without saying that Rhode Island noise rock band Daughters comes with a lot of baggage. Even as they debuted in 2003, with their much-lauded Canada Songs, they were seeking to cast off their past lives as the grindcore group As the Sun Sets. Canada Songs was a controlled chaos of screams and blistering guitar licks; by the time you could tell the songs apart, they had you. The band fell out around their third record, as bands do, but reformed to release 2018’s You Won’t Get What You Want which collects a variety of discordant music styles into an interesting and controlled catalog. These days it seems like Daughters frontman Alexis Marshall wants to employ more throbbing-noise and altar calls than chaotic screaming freak-outs, which I would say is a sign of maturity if he hadn’t suggested last year that people should punch journalists they don’t agree with. (Mon Dec 2, 8 pm, Bossanova Ballroom, $20) SUZETTE SMITH

Sir Woman
Prolific Austin-based singer/songwriter Kelsey Wilson (Wild Child, Glorietta) brings her newly-minted funk project to the Doug Fir Lounge for a headlining show supporting her solo debut, Party City. (Mon Dec 2, 9 pm, Doug Fir, $15)

(Mon Dec 2, 4 pm, The Benson Hotel, free, all ages)

Pizza Night
The two words in the title alone should be enough to capture your attention and hold it there, but in the interest of fully informing you: Olympia Provisions, home of godlike meats, has a night dedicated to making meaty pizzas, as well as a wine menu featuring selections perfectly paired with the flavors available, and only local bands on the speakers. (Mon Dec 2, 5 pm, Olympia Provisions, free)

Fact two: In 1997, Kenny G held the world record for playing the longest continual note on a saxophone (an E-flat for 45 minutes and 47 seconds). BANG! Fact three: Kenny G is super popular in China!

(Tues Dec 3, 6:30 pm, Southeast Wine Collective, $20)

Goat Boys never grow up, and Jim Breuer has been touring non-stop ever since leaving Saturday Night Live, with a resume containing successful radio shows and podcasts alongside more well known entries like his role in the stoner-classic Half Baked. He also is maybe the best one-man AC/DC impersonator who ever lived? Pretty specific niche, yes, but a very loud and entertaining one. (Tues Dec 3, 8 pm, Aladdin Theater, $32.50-50, all ages)

Drag Queen Bingo: Benefit for Animal Aid and Project Pooch

(Wed-Sun Dec 4-8, Pioneer Courthouse Squre, $40-100)

Mount Eerie, Julie Dorion
It’s been over a decade since the release of Lost Wisdom, the beautifully sparse 2008 collaboration that saw Mount Eerie's Phil Elverum link up with his musical hero, Julie Doiron of Eric’s Trip, along with Canadian musician Fred Squire. Recorded in Elverum’s hometown of Anacortes while Doiron and Squire were on a brief layover between touring and recording sessions of their own, the album was embraced by fans and quickly tucked away, with Elverum moving on to experiment with black metal on Wind’s Poem and Doiron returning to her indie rock roots with I Can Wonder What You Did with Your Day. Fortunately, Elverum and Doiron have reunited for Lost Wisdom pt. 2; the accompanying tour gives Elverum another chance to share the stage with his favorite singer and fans an opportunity to witness these desolate, yet endearing songs in a live setting. (Wed Dec 4, 8 pm, Revolution Hall, $20, all ages) CHIPP TERWILLIGER

The group’s compilation, Everything Hits at Once, will get you on the dancefloor with classics like “I Turn My Camera On,” “The Underdog,” and “The Way We Get By,” and a bonus new single “No Bullets Spent.” (Wed Dec 4, 8 pm, Crystal Ballroom, $38-42) ALEX ZIELINSKI

Thursday, Dec 5

Christmas Ships Parade
Since 1954, the mighty waters of the Columbia and Willamette have been home to the ONLY Christmas tradition that’s worth a damn: THE CHRISTMAS SHIPS, a mighty fleet of delightfully decorated boats that patrol our land's dark, dangerous waves—bringing us boisterous light and joy, and banishing sinister sea lions and razor-toothed mer-people to the rotting, watery depths! Nearly every night until Christmas, this jaunty procession of slow-moving, light-spangled boats will valiantly cruise through all sorts of territory, from Milwaukie to Vancouver—AND there’ll be meet and greets, where you can cram your eye-holes with close-up views of the festive boats (!) and meet the fearless skippers (!!) who heroically navigate their vessels across our rivers and into our hearts. (Thurs Dec 5-Sun Dec 22, Tom McCall Waterfront Park, free, all ages) ERIK HENRIKSEN

The Thesis
The Thesis is known for consistently bringing together some of the most promising names in Portland hip-hop, and this month’s lineup is true to form: esoteric rapper Donte Thomas, R&B/pop crooner Kid Indigo, commanding MC Mickey Taelor, skilled sampler Trox, and locally beloved DJ Verbz. But my personal favorite artist on this month’s bill is Maarquii, the dynamic genderqueer rapper/performer whose latest singles feature a full, expertly produced sound and a good amount of lyrical swagger. “Won’t you bump that new Maarquii?” they ask on “Day Ones.” Indeed, won’t you? (Thurs Dec 5, 9 pm, Kelly's Olympian, $10) BLAIR STENVICK

Jamie Lee
Jamie Lee is best known for appearances on Girl Code, @Midnight, Chelsea Lately, and HBO's Crashing, but her stand-up is as good a place as any to be wowed by not just her punchlines but her presence. (Thurs Dec 5, 8 pm, Helium Comedy Club, $25-33)

Madame Gandhi, MILCK, SassyBlack
Los Angeles-based producer, drummer, and activist Madame Gandhi (AKA Madame Gandhi) brings her percussive electronic afrobeat sounds to the Doug Fir Lounge for a Portland show supporting her electrofeminist solo EP series. Fellow LA-based artist MILCK and Seattle's SassyBlack round out the bill. (Thurs Dec 5, 9 pm, Doug Fir, $15)

The Chainsmokers, 5 Seconds of Summer, Lennon Stella
The Chainsmokers' overblown, triumphantly loud type of EDM is perfectly curated for giant arenas and outdoor partying. Remember to stay hydrated since you'll be dancing to this set all night. (Thurs Dec 5, 7 pm, Moda Center, $14-119)

Channel Tres, DJ Shi Shi, DJ Black Daria
Having supported Vince Staples and JPEGMAFIA on a tour that hit the Roseland earlier this year, Compton-hailing DJ, producer, and musician Channel Tres brings his unique blend of house-infused hip-hop and R&B back to town for a headlining set of his own. (Thurs Dec 5, 8:30 pm, Holocene, $12-15)

The Winning Films of the 15th Annual HUMP! Film Festival

 Cache   
by Dan Savage


The 15th Annual HUMP! Film Festival opened in Seattle, Olympia, Portland, San Francisco, and—for the first time ever—Vancouver, B.C. earlier this month with a brand new slate of 21 amazing films. And after three weeks, dozens of screenings, and thousands of audience ballots cast and counted, we're ready to announce the winners of the 2019 HUMP! Awards!


Since 2004 HUMP! has been the film festival that makes it possible for people to be porn stars for a weekend in a theater without becoming porn stars for eternity on the internet. Although some HUMP! filmmakers and performers choose to release their own films online, most HUMP! filmmakers and performers don't—and we never release HUMP! films online and destroy all of our master copies at the end of the annual tour. Which means at HUMP! audiences get see films and enjoy performers they'll never see or enjoy anywhere else!

image0.jpeg

This year's amazing collection of HUMP! films will tour to over fifty cities over the next year so you still have a chance to catch the festival in 2020! There will also be encore presentations of the this year's festival in Seattle on May 9 and Portland on April 4. You can already order tickets for the 2020 HUMP! Tour and encore presentations at humpfilmfest.com.


Only audiences at the opening HUMP! Festival get to vote for their favorite films and give out the HUMP! Awards. Audience members in Seattle got to hang out and cast their ballots in our swanky new HUMP! Lounge, a pop-up night club where HUMPers could discuss their favorite films over a drink, cast their ballots, and shoot commemorative Hump 2020 Boomerangs. We’re planning on opening the Hump lounge next year for all Seattle shows, not just Friday & Saturday screenings, so we'll see you there!


B2213025-D259-4A38-8A1A-A3F0488D76FF.jpeg

BEST SEX ($2,000 Prize): Wildfire "Inhibitions are burned to dust while this hedonistic group lusts around the fire."
BEST SEX RUNNER UP ($1,000 Prize): Good Kitty "When the kitten collar comes out, so do the sacred oils and earthly delights in this cunnilingual ceremony."


BEST HUMOR ($2,000 Prize): Best in Show "Mountains! Bondage! Flash paper! Puppets! Paint! A couple attempts to pack every winning HUMP! trope into their five minute film."
BEST HUMOR RUNNER UP ($1,000 Prize): Just Four Fans Only "When a group of friends decides to film an orgy in a Vegas hotel room, an unexpected participant slips into the mix."


BEST IN SHOW ($10,000 Grand Prize): Best in Show

Steven Humphrey and Kate Murphy in Portland, the HUMP! Team in San Francisco, and Hattie Hotpants in Olympia. And HUMP! couldn't happen without HUMP! producer Tracey "Peaches" Cataldo.

Hit the links below and plan your weekend accordingly

Friday, Nov 29

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

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

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

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

Turnover, Men I Trust
Turnover is clearly having some sort of major growth spurt. A few years ago, the Virginia Beach band was part of emo’s new wave, cranking out buzzy pop-punk tunes on a couple of albums released by Run for Cover Records. But on Good Nature, Turnover completes its transition into a dreamy indie pop band, with chiming guitars, laid-back vocals, and gauzy vibes. Often when this kind of thing happens, the artist stays tight-lipped on the reasons, but Turnover is open and honest about the stylistic shift, which it attributes to a wider palette of influences over the past few years: vintage soul and blues, Frank Ocean, electronic, the Beach Boys, bossa nova music, and jazz. (Fri Nov 29, 8 pm, Wonder Ballroom, $25-28) BEN COLEMAN

ZooLights
One of Portland's most beloved holiday traditions returns, transforming the Oregon Zoo into winter wonderland of illuminated, multicolored brilliance, featuring over a million lights creatively arranged throughout the zoo. (Fri Nov 29, 5 pm, Oregon Zoo, $14.95-19.95, through Jan 1 2020)

Starving for Laughs: A Benefit for the Oregon Food Bank
Forget the buying and consuming part of Black Friday, and instead celebrate the laughing and helping part at this holiday comedy stand-up showcase benefitting the Oregon Food Bank, hosted by Jono Gindhart, Bryan Bixby, and Chase Anderson, with sets from Zehava Glazier, Chris Johnson, Cam Strong, Kandyce August, and Will Weldon. (Fri Nov 29, 7:30 pm, Kelly's Olympian, $10)

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

Portland Trail Blazers vs. Chicago Bulls
When I was a kid, I’d load up EA’s Bulls vs. Blazers and the NBA Playoffs into the ol' Sega Genesis, and I'd rewrite history; Terry Porter always scored 70 points a game, and Michael Jordan won nothing. Hopefully tonight, when the Blazers take on the Chicago Bulls, they can bring a video game to life better than, say… any of the Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat movies. Because yiiiikes. (Fri Nov 29, 7 pm, Moda Center, $27 & Up) BOBBY ROBERTS

Sullivan King, Lick, Grabbitz, Swarm
Los Angeles-based multi-instrumentalist and EDM producer Sullivan King heads back up the coast for the Portland stop on the "Thank You For Raging" Tour. (Fri Nov 29, 7 pm, Roseland, $25)

Shpongle, Android Jones, Kayla Scintilla, VOLO, Luxora Major
Producer Simon Posford and flutist Raja Ram bring their pioneering psybient and psych-infused trance project across the pond to head up a special audio-visual experience in Portland. Android Jones, Kayla Scintilla, VOLO, and Luxora Major round out the proceedings, along with a full array of artisan vendors, stage performers, and more. (Fri Nov 29, 8:15 pm, Crystal Ballroom, $50 & Up)


Saturday, Nov 30

Kikagaku Moyo, Mope Grooves
Psychedelic five-piece Kikagaku Moyo started out busking on the streets of Tokyo in 2012, and now they’re touring the world as one of this decade’s most highly coveted acts. A couple years ago, the band came to town to play a pair of Pickathon sets, and, despite trying my best to make it to their performance at the Galaxy Barn, the venue hit capacity before I (and countless others) could make it inside. So it’s only right that Kikagaku Moyo—whose moniker translates to “geometric patterns” in Japanese—is making another visit to the City of Roses this fall. After all, Portland’s scene of eclectic, psychedelia-loving listeners is exactly the kind of audience the band wanted to engage when they left Japan. (Sat Nov 30, 8:30 pm, Crystal Ballroom, $20-22, all ages) JENNI MOORE

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

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

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

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

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

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

RAF, The Reverberations
Portland's RAF brings the sounds of England's mod movement to the Star Theater stage to celebrate the release of their latest album, with like-minded local psych-pop outfit the Reverberations rounding out the proceedings with their own '60s influenced sounds. (Sat Nov 30, 9 pm, Star Theater, $10-15)

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

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


Sunday, Dec 1

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The 26 Funniest Things to Do in Portland: December 2019

 Cache   
by Mercury EverOut Staff

John Oliver
Apparently this guy has a "comedy/news" show on cable or something? He's no Wendy Williams, that's for sure. But if you're hoping to watch this anonymous English man tell news jokes (I've already forgotten what he looks like and his picture is right there) then this is probably the show you've been waiting for. It'd be cooler if this was a Wendy Williams show, but hey, you can't always get what you want. (Sat-Sun Dec 28-29, 7 pm & 9:30 pm, Keller Auditorium, $65-95)


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

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

Jim Breuer
Goat Boys never grow up, and Jim Breuer has been touring non-stop ever since leaving Saturday Night Live, with a resume containing successful radio shows and podcasts alongside more well known entries like his role in the stoner-classic Half Baked. He also is maybe the best one-man AC/DC impersonator who ever lived? Pretty specific niche, yes, but a very loud and entertaining one. (Tues Dec 3, 8 pm, Aladdin Theater, $32.50-50, all ages)

Relentless Splendor's 99-Minute Comedy Fest
Suki's plays host to this comedy smorgasbord from Relentless Splendor, packing a whole comedy festival's worth of entertainment into 99 minutes, with sets from Simon Gibson, Whitney Streed's Rants Off Dance Off, Chris Khatami's Spec Script, and more. (Tues Dec 3, 7:30 pm, Suki's Bar & Grill, $5)

The I, Anonymous Show
If you love sick secrets, crazy rants, and side-splitting laughs, have we got a show for you! The I, Anonymous Show stars the fabulous Kate Murphy, who selects the wildest, strangest submissions from the beloved Mercury column and reads them live on stage. Joining Kate is a panel of whip-smart comedians—this month it’s Tory Ward, Jake Silberman, and Dylan Jenkins—who dissect these submissions with hilarious precision. If you’re looking for serious fun, the I, Anonymous Show is the place to be! (Wed Dec 4, 7:30 pm, Curious Comedy Theater, $10)

Jamie Lee
Jamie Lee is best known for appearances on Girl Code, @Midnight, Chelsea Lately, and HBO's Crashing, but her stand-up is as good a place as any to be wowed by not just her punchlines but her presence. (Dec 5-7, Thurs 8 pm, Fri-Sat 7:30 pm & 10 pm, Helium Comedy Club, $25-33)

A John Waters Christmas: Filthier & Merrier
The crown prince of perversion, John Waters, returns to Portland with his one-of-a-kind one-man show, A John Waters Christmas. Those who are faint of heart beware and prepare for an evening of hilarious blasphemy. (Fri Dec 6, 8 pm, Aladdin Theater, $37-46)

Drunk Herstory

Psydoll. (Sun Dec 8, 6 pm, Funhouse Lounge, $6-40)

The Bold and the Beardiful
A hirsute comedy show for some of the city's fuzziest stand-ups, and for those who think jokes work better when they're leaving a scruffy face. Hosted by Ernie Olson and James Bozquez, with performances by Adam Pasi, Brandon Lyons, Jake Breslauer, and Jake Tooley. (Thurs Dec 12, 8 pm, Helium Comedy Club, $12)

Dear Diary: 1-Year Anniversary Show
The improv show dedicated to taking all those things you put in your diary during your tween years, and loosing them upon the stage in the most hilarrible ways is celebrating its first anniversary, and to commemorate the occasion, show creator Anne Zander will take the stage as this month's guest diarist. The performers tasked with taking her mortification and turning it into comedy gold are Natalie Haddad (Show Ridiculous), Katie Kester (Show Ridiculous), Roland Mechanik (Cut and Run), Brianna Núñez-Webb (Cut and Run), Emily Shankman (Show Ridiculous), Lauren Sinner (Night Cheese), and Emilie Sites (Papa?)

Martin Austin, and Kat Buckley, with a special burlesque performance by Vanity Thorn. (Fri Dec 13, 9:30 pm, Curious Comedy Theater, $15-20)

Trevor Noah
It took a little bit, but comedian Trevor Noah finally made The Daily Show all his own, and he's using that momentum to propel himself into his latest tour, "Loud & Clear," stopping at the Moda this winter. (Sat Dec 14, 7:30 pm, Moda Center, $36-92)

Minority Retort
Fresh off shows at both the Pacific Crest and Ha Ha Harvest Comedy Festivals, Portland's best stand-up comedy showcase spotlighting comedians of color returns with a December installment, featuring sets from Jaren George, Stephanie Patricio, Richie Aflleje, Thomas Lundy, and headliner Adam Past.

Comedian Dan Weber and a slew of his funny friends bring his bible-reading podcast to life on the Helium stage. (Tues Dec 17, 8 pm, Helium Comedy Club, $12)

The Siren Theater's Best Christmas Ever!
Somebody has to say it: Holiday spectaculars are reliably unspectacular. But not when they star the gut-busting geniuses at the Siren Theater. That’s right! Charming goofballs Shelley McLendon, Erin Jean O'Regan, Justin Himes, Jed Arkley, Kirsten Kuppenbender, and the Mercurys own Wm. Steven Humphrey are back with an all-new sketch comedy holiday treat. Turn off Netflix’s Yule Log and get out there! (Wed Dec 18-Sat Dec 21, 7:30 pm, Siren Theater, $14-20)

BenDeLaCreme & Jinkx Monsoon: All I Want For Christmas Is Attention!
BenDeLaCreme and Jinkx Monsoon are both Seattle gals (though Jinkx actually grew up and started her drag career right here in Portland), and were both on RuPaul’s Drag Race, but they are total opposites. BenDeLaCreme provides the sugar, while Jinkx comes hard with the spice. Come see these hilarious queens as they contrastingly deal with the stressful holiday season. (Thurs Dec 19, 8 pm, Aladdin Theater, $32-39)

Natasha Leggero & Moshe Kasher
One of comedian Natasha Leggero’s greatest strengths is her crowd work, and now that’s she’s married to (the also very funny) Moshe Kasher, this pair of laugh-makers are legitimately qualified to offer their audiences on-point relationship advice. Though it shouldn’t be very difficult, drag your partner to this show, confess your deepest relationship problems to Natasha and Moshe, and prepare to be buried alive underneath a pile of hilarious knowledge, opinions, and (of course) jokes from this charming dynamic duo of comedy. (Dec 19-21, Thurs 8 pm, Fri-Sat 7:30 pm & 10 pm, Helium Comedy Club, $25-33)

Disowned
The return of Jenna Vesper's stand-up showcase with a twist: Instead of just telling jokes about the parents, comedians will be telling jokes in front of their parents, followed by a Q&A with said parents about what the hell it was like raising a stand-up comedian, and what it felt like to hear that come out of their mouth just now. Tonight's guests include Miss Maddie, Vee Chattie, Lacy Day, and Emma Pace Jonas. (Fri Dec 27, 7:30 pm, Kickstand Comedy Space, $10)

Jay Larson
Spend your New Year's Eve with Massachusetts-raised, Los Angeles-based comedian Jay Larson.

Universal Standard launches concept shop in NYC

 Cache   

Dubbed 'Universal Standard 1:1' – a new experiential retail space “for all of US, as we are," the space was designed to be both a shopping space and a community space.
 
Located on the fourth floor at 192 Mercer Street, customers can come to shop in-store or reserve the community space for personalized gatherings such as dinners, networking, book clubs, and exhibitions. Universal Standard will also host its own curated programming and community events with local brands, artists, and organizations for unique events and gatherings. 
 
“Everything is changing. Shopping in a physical space needs to be about much more than the purchase transaction,” said Alex Waldman, Universal Standard co-founder and COO, in a news statement. 
 
“Bringing delight and value beyond the product is everything. We wanted to create a space our customers felt was theirs as well – their pied a terre in the heart of every city a 1:1 exists.”
 
The 1:1 spaces are also available to customers for free.
 
“There are no rental fees, no membership fees because we have learned that generosity is never wasted on our customers. Universal Standard is about access – period – and the community we see coming together in these spaces all over the country is everything we intended to bring into being when we started our company,” added Waldman. 
 
The New York City location is the company’s fifth, after Seattle, Chicago, Portland and Houston. Meanwhile, the company plans for ten more openings over the next 12 months.
 
The fashion brand was founded by Polina Veksler and Alexandra Waldman with the overarching mission of “Fashion Freedom” and style without size barriers.

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!

'Cosmic Crisp' apple coming to Washington store shelves

 Cache   
The Cosmic Crisp apple is on its way to grocery store shelves.

The new apple is the result of twenty years of research at Washington State University. Growers in Washington, who paid for the research, now have the exclusive right to produce and sell the apple for the next ten years.

It's called Cosmic Crisp because of the bright yellowish dots on its skin, which researchers said looked like distant stars. Researchers say the red apple is a cross between an Enterprise and a Honeycrisp – making it perfect for eating and baking. It is also engineered to brown far slower than contemporary apples, keeping it fresher for longer.

The apples begun being sold in the Seattle area over the weekend. They should be available in stores throughout the state this week.

If you don't see the new apple at your grocery store, the product's website said "The best way to ensure Cosmic Crisp® apples in your local store is to ask your produce retailer for availability."

Producers say 450,000 40-pound boxes will be available for sale this year. That number is expected to jump to over 2 million in 2020, and more than 21 million by 2026.

JLL Arranges Financing for The Peaks of Nanuet Apartment Community in New York

 Cache   
HOUSTON, TX - JLL announced today that it has arranged acquisition financing for The Peaks of Nanuet, a 504-unit apartment complex in the suburb of Nanuet, Rockland County, New York. JLL worked exclusively on behalf of Mill Creek Residential Trust LLC and an institutional equity partner to arrange the 10-year, floating-rate acquisition loan through Freddie Mac. The loan will be serviced by Holliday Fenoglio Fowler LP, a JLL company and a Freddie Mac Optigo℠ lender. JLL also brokered the sale of the property to Mill Creek Residential, details of which were released in a separate announcement. The Peaks of Nanuet consists 504 units across 64 buildings set on 54 acres that comprise a mix of one-, two- and three-bedroom units averaging 1,208 square feet, with approximately 40% of homes also inclusive of lofts. Units feature nine-foot ceilings, intrusion alarms, separate dining rooms, spacious closets, full-sized washers and dryers, and patios or balconies. The transit-oriented property is located at 100 Avalon Gardens Drive less than a mile from the intersection of the Garden State Parkway, Interstate 287 and Palisades Interstate Parkway. Due to its central location, The Peaks of Nanuet is convenient to Manhattan, the New Jersey state line and Westchester County via car and a variety of mass transit options. Community amenities include a fully equipped fitness center and a resident lounge. The property was 95% occupied at closing. The JLL Capital Markets debt placement team representing the borrower included Senior Managing Director Andy Scott and Directors Matthew Pizzolato and Scott Findlay. JLL was excited to be a part of this transaction by advising the borrowers on their acquisition of The Peaks at Nanuet, Pizzolato said. We were able to get Freddie Mac to step up and provide excellent terms that will allow the borrower to execute their business plan at the property.
