A atividade era a preferida do rapaz, que morreu em um tiroteio


família de Renard Matthews fez um funeral um tanto quanto inusitado para o jovem de 18 anos, que morreu durante um tiroteio em Nova Orleans há duas semanas: o colocou sentado, vestindo a camisa do seu jogador de basquete favorito e jogando videogame.

Temeka Matthews, mãe de Renard, disse para a emissora WGNO que jogar videogame era o que ele mais gostava, além do jogador Kyrie Irving, que joga no Boston Celtics, da NBA. Então, para homenageá-lo, colocaram ele com um controle de videogame nas mãos e um pacote de salgadinhos do lado.

O funeral foi realizado no domingo, 8, em uma casa funerária na cidade de Treme e Renard será enterrado na terça-feira, 10.

          SUBURGATORY's Laura Liguori Stars In New Play      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Actress Laura Liguori takes on the role of a Russian poet's enigmatic muse in a true life story of 1930s Russia in the play MAYAKOVSKY AND STALIN will premiere at 8 p.m. on July 21 at the Lounge Theatre, 6201 Santa Monica Blvd. Los Angeles, CA 90038. It will run through Aug. 19.

With a multi-media approach, MAYAKOVSKY AND STALIN will feature more than 300 images and videos projected on screens across the stage, recalling the tumultuous Stalin era of Soviet Russia. Adding to the live performances and imagery is the compelling score of composer John Zalewski.

Written and directed by critically acclaimed American playwright Murray Mednick, MAYAKOVSKY AND STALIN tells the parallel stories of Russian poet Vladimir Mayakovsky and his married lover and muse, Lilya Brik (played by Liguori) and of Russian dictator Joseph Stalin (played by Maury Sterling of "Homeland") and his wife Nadya. Lilya, an actress, convinced Stalin to restore Mayakovsky (played by Daniel Dorr) to the canon of accepted Soviet poets, only to see the political repercussions of Nadya's suicide at a state dinner where she renounced Stalin's policies.

"I am currently reading the actual love letters written between Mayakovsky and Lilya- they were truly soul mates, incarnates of each other, artists, people who lived freely and deeply despite the horror around them," said Liguori who starred in Mednick's "The Gary Plays" last year. "This is a beautiful play, and the cast is just outstanding! It's an honor to play Lilya- she was a true feminist, she lived according to her terms, no-one dictated to her, a beautiful spitfire of a soul."

For his part, Mednick welcomed working with Liguori once again after the success of "The Gary Plays" last year: "Laura Liguori has the perfect combination of intelligence, insouciance, and fearlessness for the role of Lilyana. It's like she channels something. Liguori is open to the spirit of the person she is playing. It's hard to describe. That's her talent and this type of talent is very good for my plays."

Liguori comes to MAYAKOVSKY AND STALIN after her work in Tania Wisbar's 2017 critically-acclaimed World War II play "The Red Dress," where she portrayed a famous German actress at odds with the Nazi regime. She had previously earned praise for her work as Marilyn Monroe in "Marilyn, Madness and Me."

"I am very drawn to strong, brave, complex characters who must battle to overcome severe life challenges she said. "It's all the more compelling to portray an actual person who lived and possibly died for what they believed in."

Born in Scottsdale, Ariz., Liguori grew up with a passion for the theater and acting. She was classically trained at the Oxford School of Drama in Oxford England, and Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles before gaining acclaim for her stage and television work. Among TV credits are the sitcom "The Boogie Dilemma (Amazon)," "Suburgatory," "Ugly Betty," "Weeds," "Growing Up Fisher." Most recent films include "Love Lust, and A Room Key," "Hollywood Girl: The Peg Entwistle Story" in which she starred as Peg Entwistle.

MAYAKOVSKY AND STALIN features Maury Sterling ("Homeland"), Daniel Dorr (Antaeus Theatre Company's production of "As You Like It"), Andy Hirsch ("Big Love"), Casey McKinnon ("The Tragedy of JFK" at the Blank), Rhonda Aldrich ("Sequestered"), Alexis Sterling ("All My Sons" at the Ruskin), Ann Colby Stocking ("The Golden Dragon" at Boston Court) and Max Faugno ("The Brothers Karamazov" at Circle X).

          Vive la France: Les Bleus advance to World Cup final      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

ST. PETERSBURG, Russia — They're young, they're brash and they're collectively worth a billion dollars. The one thing missing for this French squad is an international title.

Kylian Mbappe, Paul Pogba and France are about to get that chance.

Les Bleus are headed to the World Cup final.

Samuel Umtiti clinched a 1-0 win over Belgium — and earned the approval of watching French President Emmanuel Macron in the VIP seats at St. Petersburg Stadium — by scoring on a header off a corner kick in the 51st minute on Tuesday.

"Vive la France! Vive la Republique!" France forward Antoine Griezmann shouted during postgame celebrations.

Umtiti played his part in a strong defensive effort by the French, too, helping to shut out the highest-scoring team at the tournament and leaving Belgium's golden generation of Eden Hazard, Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku to regret another missed opportunity at a major tournament.

"It's me that scored," Umtiti said, "but we all delivered a big game."

France's players danced on the field after the final whistle and their fans sang in the stands long past the end of the match, surrounded by yellow-clad security.

They certainly hope to keep the party going on Sunday in the final in Moscow. France — with an average age of 26 — will face either Croatia or England, who play Wednesday at the Luzhniki Stadium in the Russian capital, and has a shot at redemption after losing its last two major finals — at the 2006 World Cup when Zinedine Zidane was sent off for a nasty head-butt and the 2016 European Championship on home soil.

"We're immensely privileged to be in the World Cup final," France coach Didier Deschamps said. "It was so painful two years ago we have to savor it."

Deschamps now has the chance to become the third person to win the World Cup as a player and a coach, after German great Franz Beckenbauer and Brazil's Mario Zagallo. As France captain, Deschamps raised soccer's most prized trophy in 1998.

Deschamps has faced some criticism for being too pragmatic and functional despite having a squad of superstars, but his team was set up superbly against an opponent that was largely restricted to only minor chances and denied on two occasions in particular by France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

He dived to his right midway through the first half to claw away Toby Alderweireld's shot, then got in front of Lukaku to punch away one of the many crosses sent in by Belgium in the final stages.

In a tournament dominated by goals from set pieces, France's goal came off a corner when Griezmann curled in the ball from the right and Umtiti got in front of tall Belgium midfielder Marouane Fellaini to knock in his header at the near post.

Up in the corporate seats, president Macron reacted to the goal by shaking the hand of King Philippe of Belgium as FIFA president Gianni Infantino watched on between them.

"Unfortunately for us, the difference is just a dead-ball situation, a set play," Belgium coach Roberto Martinez said. "The game was, as you can imagine, very close, very tight, and it was going to be decided (on) maybe the one that could find that final touch in the box."

After reaching the quarterfinals at both the 2014 World Cup and the European Championship in 2016, Belgium again missed the chance to get to an international final and has yet to fulfil its lofty expectations. Leading the scoring in this tournament with 14 goals, many thought this could be their year.

With Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Neymar no longer in Russia, Hazard and Mbappe have taken over as the stars of the World Cup and there was a buzz every time either got the ball.

Yet while Hazard — Belgium's captain — faded after a strong opening 30 minutes, Mbappe was a constant threat. His first touch was after 10 seconds and, after receiving the ball on the right wing, he sped past Jan Vertonghen and then Mousa Dembele on a thrilling run.

At 19, Mbappe wasn't even born when France won the World Cup for the first and only time with a squad that is just as diverse as the one Deschamps is leading 20 years later.

Umtiti was born in Cameroon. Mbappe has Algerian-Cameroonian roots.

"It's a pure pleasure to see these players grow," Deschamps said, "and never give up."

Instead of a trip to Moscow, Belgium will return to St. Petersburg on Saturday for the third-place match no team wants to play.

IN THE STANDS

Along with the French and Gabonese presidents and the king and queen of Belgium, there was rock 'n' roll royalty watching the game.

Mick Jagger was one of the many famous faces in the stands at St. Petersburg Stadium. The Rolling Stones frontman is a big soccer fan, having attended the World Cup final in Brazil in 2014 as well as many England games.

Former Baywatch actress Pamela Anderson, who is the partner of France defender Adil Rami, also was present.

          The Latest: Pogba dedicates France win to freed Thai players      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

MOSCOW — The Latest on Tuesday at the World Cup (all times local):

12:15 a.m.

Paul Pogba has paused after the biggest win of his international career to dedicate it to the Thai soccer team whose last members were freed from a flooded cave hours earlier.

The France midfielder took to Twitter shortly after France beat Belgium late Tuesday to advance to the World Cup final. He posted the boys' photos and said the victory "goes to the heroes of the day, well done boys, you are so strong."

The last of the 12 boys and their coach were freed earlier in the day from a cave where they had been trapped for more than two weeks.

FIFA had invited the team to the World Cup final on Sunday but the governing body announced the boys wouldn't be able to attend since they are receiving medical treatment after their ordeal.

11:15 p.m.

Paris has erupted in firecrackers, flares and shouts and tears of joy after France advanced to the World Cup final.

Red smoke rose up from flares fired by fans on the Right Bank esplanade outside City Hall, where crowds watched a broadcast of the 1-0 victory over Belgium on huge screens Tuesday night.

Fans poured onto streets around the city, from the chic Champs-Elysees to working-class neighborhoods on the edge of town. Firecrackers popped in quick succession, punctuated by car horns and football chants and "On est en finale!" or "we're in the final!"

Some streets were closed to car traffic to accommodate fans. Police vans lined the busiest areas in a city still on guard after extremist attacks.

France will face the winner of Wednesday's semifinal between England and Croatia in the World Cup decider in Moscow on Sunday. The French public, celebrities and politicians have rallied around the national team as it advanced.

Samuel Umititi scored the only goal in the semifinal with a header in the 51st minute at the St. Petersburg stadium in Russia.

Umititi says "We worked really hard together, and it's me that scored but we all delivered a big game."

His live TV interview was interrupted by teammate Antoine Griezmann, who saluted to the camera and said: "Vive la France! Vive la Republique!"

10:55 p.m.

France has reached the World Cup final for the first time since 2006 with a 1-0 win over Belgium in a semifinal match that attracted presidents, royalty and a rock star.

Samuel Umtiti's header in the 51st minute was the only goal in a tense match at St. Petersburg.

France, the 1998 champions and runners-up in '06, will play either Croatia or England in Sunday's final at Moscow. England and Croatia will meet Wednesday in Moscow in the second semifinal.

France President Emmanuel Macron and King Philippe of Belgium shook hands in the VIP section before the match. Mick Jagger was also on the official list of guests.

What came first, the chicken or the goal?

Harry Kane, Dele Alli were among the England players who played a game of toss the rubber chicken at training, a day ahead of a World Cup semifinal against Croatia.

Why?

"That's exactly what I asked our fitness coaches around here," England coach Gareth Southgate said. "Our physical performance coaches try to keep refreshing the warmups of the players and keep them stimulated. Just a bit of fun to get them moving, and some of the mobility exercises."

10:09 p.m.

Samuel Umtiti has headed France into a 1-0 lead against Belgium in the World Cup semifinals.

Umtiti rose brilliantly to head in Antoine Griezmann's corner from the right in the 51st minute, for his first goal of the tournament.

Striker Olivier Giroud won the corner after turning Belgian defender Vincent Kompany, forcing him to put his goal-bound shot out of play.

The winner in St. Petersburg plays Croatia or England in Sunday's final.

___

9:46 p.m.

It's 0-0 at halftime in the World Cup semifinal despite Belgium and France going close to scoring in the first half.

With France's soccer-loving President Emmanuel Macron and Belgian King Philippe watching from the stands, France sat back and hoped to hit Belgium on the counterattack.

Belgium used the space to put France under pressure around the 20-minute mark with Eden Hazard firing a curling shot from the left that Raphael Varane headed over the bar. Hugo Lloris was twice called into action to save France.

The France goalkeeper first punched away a cross by Kevin De Bruyne aimed at Marouane Fellaini and moments later dived to his right to block a shot by Toby Alderweireld.

French teenager Kylian Mbappe's pace was a constant threat on the right and his pass in the 40th minute set up Benjamin Pavard but Belgian keeper Thibaut Courtois stuck out a left leg to deflect the shot wide.

___

9:10 p.m.

Mick Jagger is on FIFA's list of VIP guests at the World Cup semifinal between France and Belgium in St. Petersburg.

The Rolling Stones singer completed the band's world tour on Sunday in Poland.

On stage in Warsaw, Jagger fulfilled a request by former Polish president Lech Walesa by drawing attention to an authoritarian government policy to remove independent judges.

Among the political leaders joining Jagger in the crowd as official are Hungary's Prime Minister Viktor Orban and Ali Bongo Ondimba, the President of Gabon.

___

9 p.m.

The World Cup semifinal between France and Belgium has kicked off at St. Petersburg Stadium, with France President Emmanuel Macron and King Philippe of Belgium in attendance.

France coach Didier Deschamps warmly hugged Thierry Henry moments before the start. Henry is France's all-time leading scorer with 51 goals, but is now an assistant to Belgium coach Robert Martinez. Henry also greeted players on France's bench.

The winner between France and Belgium will meet Croatia or England in Sunday's final.

France was European Championship runner-up two years ago and is aiming to reach its fourth major final this century. Les Bleus won Euro 2000 and lost the 2006 World Cup final.

Belgium is hoping to reach only the second major final, having lost the European final to West Germany in 1980. Belgium lost its only previous World Cup semifinal to an Argentina in '86.

___

8:50 p.m.

France President Emmanuel Macron is attending the World Cup semifinal between France and Belgium at St. Petersburg Stadium. Macron shook hands with King Philippe of Belgium, who was with his wife Queen Mathilde.

Macron and King Philippe shook hands warmly and Macron patted him on the chest.

Macron is an avid soccer fan and supports southern French club Marseille.

8:10 p.m.

Mexico went home from the World Cup more than a week ago, and while its fans are still scattered around Russia, some of them have lost enough interest in the matches that they're selling tickets at face value.

Several fans wearing Mexico's green jerseys approached a larger group of Belgians at a beer garden in St. Petersburg offering seats at "FIFA prices" for the World Cup semifinal. They didn't immediately find any takers among the festive Europeans, who apparently already were set for the Belgium-France match.

Mexican and South American fans came to Russia in huge numbers despite having to travel far greater distances than Europeans. They're still everywhere in the semifinal cities of St. Petersburg and Moscow even though only teams still alive are from Europe.

7:55 p.m.

Belgium coach Roberto Martinez has picked Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Mousa Dembele to replace Thomas Meunier for the World Cup semifinal against France.

Martinez has been forced to reshuffle his back line after Paris Saint-Germain wing back Meunier was suspended for the match in St. Petersburg after picking up his second yellow card of the tournament in Belgium's 2-1 quarterfinal win over Brazil.

After using a four-man defense against Brazil, Martinez has reverted to a three-man backline and four-man midfield of Nacer Chadli on the left, Dembele on the right, and Marouane Fellaini and Axel Witsel in the middle.

Eden Hazard, Romelu Lukaku and Kevin De Bruyne make up a potent three-man attack.

Dembele's inclusion was the only change to the Belgium team that beat Brazil 2-1 in the quarterfinals.

Lineup: Thibaut Courtois, Toby Alderweireld, Vincent Kompany, Jan Vertonghen, Axel Witsel, Kevin De Bruyne, Marouane Fellaini, Romelu Lukaku, Eden Hazard, Mousa Dembele, Nacer Chadli.

____

7:45 p.m.

France coach Didier Deschamps has recalled Blaise Matuidi in the only change to his lineup for the World Cup semifinal against Belgium at St. Petersburg Stadium.

Matuidi, who was suspended for the 2-0 quarterfinal win over Uruguay last Friday, comes into midfield to replace Corentin Tolisso.

Veteran striker Olivier Giroud hasn't scored yet in the tournament but needs one goal to move ahead of Zinedine Zidane into outright fourth spot on France's all-time list. Giroud keeps his place in a forward line featuring 19-year-old sensation Kylian Mbappe and Antoine Griezmann.

France: Hugo Lloris, Benjamin Pavard, Raphael Varane, Samuel Umtiti, Paul Pogba, Antoine Griezmann, Olivier Giroud, Kylian Mbappe, N'Golo Kante, Blaise Matuidi, Lucas Hernandez.

7:30 p.m.

The British government says motorways are expected to have one-third less traffic than normal when England takes on Croatia in the World Cup semifinals.

Highways England says traffic analysis on each of the England match days to date showed that during the games demand reduced by up to 33 percent.

The agency said in a statement that roads were not busier than normal before or after games, "suggesting people are often choosing not to travel or to travel at completely different times."

Frank Bird, one of Highways England's emergency planning officers, says "along with the rest of the country, we'll be cheering on England! We want them to bring it home - and we want everyone on our roads to get home safely."

7:15 p.m.

Thousands more England fans are expected to descend on Moscow for their first World Cup semifinal in 28 years, but there's not much sign of them yet.

The Nikolskaya street near the Kremlin, elaborately decorated with hanging lights, has been the main gathering point for fans in the Russian capital.

There were no more than a few dozen England fans there as of late Tuesday afternoon, with those singing team songs heavily outnumbered by passers-by filming them on phones.

Still, Kevin Miles of the Football Supporters Federation expects between 5,000 and 7,000 fans for Wednesday's semifinal against Croatia, but admits "a lot of people are doing it last minute, so it's very difficult to put numbers on it."

Airlines have offered extra places on flights to Moscow and some Russians have sold their tickets after their team lost to Croatia. Still, Miles says high prices "have put a lot of people off" who were thinking of traveling at short notice.

6:15 p.m.

England manager Gareth Southgate has been surprised at the vest craze back home, where "Waistcoast Wednesday" is trending.

Stores have been pushing waistcoat sales as England advanced to a World Cup semifinal match against Croatia in Moscow on Wednesday, with people taken by Southgate's style of wearing a vest without his suit jacket,

Southgate says "I was not a renowned fashion icon throughout my playing career, so it's rather strange to feel that way now. But we are really proud of the support that we are receiving."

England has reached the semifinals at the World Cup for the first time since 1990, and confidence among supporters is growing that the national team will win the title for the first time since 1966.

Southgate says, "We've had the chance to make a difference. Our supporters, our country has had a long time of suffering in terms of football, and the enthusiasm they have for these players, because of the way they've — not only the way they've played, but the way they're conducted themselves, they've been brilliant ambassadors for our country, and I think everybody can see that they're proud to wear the shirt."

FOX Sports says it will be simulcasting the World Cup semifinal between France and Belgium on Silvercast's high-definition screen known as "Mega-Zilla" in New York's Times Square.

Soccer fans in the United States have watched the World Cup in Russia on big screens around the country, but this is promoted as the biggest of them all.

The "Mega-Zilla," a 78-foot-by-330-foot (24x100-meter) screen being promoted as the largest TV screen in the world, will be located between 45th and 46th Street on Broadway in Manhattan.

France and Belgium will be playing for a spot in Sunday's final in Moscow.

4:45 p.m.

FIFA says players from the youth soccer team rescued from a cave in Thailand will not be able to attend the World Cup final.

The sport's world governing body says it has been informed by Thai authorities that the 12 boys and their coach "will not be in a position to travel" for health reasons.

FIFA expressed its "great joy" at the rescue and says its "priority remains the health of everyone involved in the operation."

FIFA leaders will meet with Thai soccer officials this weekend in Moscow to explore "a new opportunity" to invite the boys to a major event to celebrate their survival.

The last four of the boys and the team coach were rescued Tuesday from a flooded cave in far northern Thailand after an ordeal that lasted more than two weeks.

FIFA expressed "profound gratitude to all persons involved in the rescue operation," and condolences for the family of the diver who died.

3:30 p.m.

They're getting the World Cup croissants ready in Paris.

Paris, Russia, that is.

The village of Paris just outside the Russian city of Nizhny Novgorod is embracing its French links ahead of the World Cup semifinal match between France and Belgium.

The village cafe is decorated with images of the Eiffel Tower and is preparing croissants for the game, plus a Russian menu for any French guests who might happen to drop by.

Mayor Sergei Gromov says "we were supporting Russia but now it's turned out like that (that Russia was eliminated), we're going to support France and wish it success."

The village's full name is In Memory Of The Paris Commune, a reference to a socialist rebellion in 19th-century France. The name is so unwieldy most locals use Paris for short. Not everyone in Paris is pro-France, though. Villager Elena Vasilyeva says she's cheering on Belgium because "they're a real team."

3 p.m.

The Ukraine Football Federation has offered to pay a fine imposed on a Croatia official for making a pro-Ukraine video at the World Cup.

Soccer's international governing body has fined Ognjen Vukojevic 15,000 Swiss francs ($15,150) for "unsporting behavior" after he and Croatia defender Domagoj Vida recorded a video including the phrase "glory to Ukraine" after the team beat host nation Russia in the World Cup quarterfinals.

The video angered some Russian fans, but was welcomed in Ukraine, where both Vida and Vukojevic formerly played for the Dynamo Kiev club. Russia annexed the Crimean peninsula from Ukraine in 2014 and political tensions remain high.

UFF president Andriy Pavelko, wearing a Croatia shirt and scarf, tells Ukrainian broadcaster 112 that he and other members of the UFF management offered to pay the fine and help Vukojevic with legal costs if he wants to appeal the ruling.

The Croatia soccer federation has already removed Vukojevic from its World Cup delegation. Vida was let off with an official warning and no match sanction, leaving him available to play in Wednesday's World Cup semifinal against England.

1 p.m.

The World Cup semifinal stage is beginning with the all-European lineup being celebrated by soccer's governing body on the continent.

Belgium and France play in St. Petersburg on Tuesday and then Croatia and England meet the following night in Moscow.

It is the fifth time the last four has featured only European teams.

UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin says "even though some of our traditional contenders such as Germany, Spain and Portugal were eliminated, there are other teams which have surpassed expectations and can now win the title."

In a statement to The Associated Press, Ceferin added "these results validate all the work that is being done across the continent to develop football, and they also showcase the strength and quality that exists across the whole UEFA region."

          Manchester City signs Riyad Mahrez in record club deal      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

MANCHESTER, England — Manchester City has signed Riyad Mahrez for a club-record 60 million pounds ($80 million) as it further strengthens its team after winning the Premier League title.

The 27-year-old Algeria winger was an integral part of Leicester's astonishing run to the title in 2016, but has been pushing to leave the central England club for a year.

Pep Guardiola's City, which won the league by 19 points in May, confirmed Tuesday evening that Mahrez has signed a five-year contract.

Mahrez will go down as one of the bargains of the Premier League era, having joined Leicester for a reported 400,000 pounds (now $530,000) from French club Le Havre in 2014.

Scoring 17 goals in Leicester's title-winning campaign saw Mahrez voted as player of the year in England in 2016.

"I am so pleased to have joined City, a side playing great football under Pep Guardiola. They're redefining the English game and I wanted to be a part of it," Mahrez said on City's website.

"Watching them from afar has been a pleasure. Pep is committed to playing attacking football, which is a perfect for me, and City's performances last season were outstanding ... I believe my own game can develop under Pep's management."

City director of football Txiki Begiristain said Mahrez "beats defenders and creates space ... We're sure he will bring additional attacking quality to our squad."

Mahrez helped Leicester to a shock league title, and then played a major role in the club reaching the Champions League quarterfinals the following season.

He made 180 appearances for Leicester, scoring 48 goals.

          Southgate, England ready to face music of soccer history      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

MOSCOW — Gareth Southgate and England are ready to face the music.

No other soccer nation dwells on decades of failure quite like the English. Southgate was so demoralized by his penalty kick failure against Germany in the 1996 European Championship semifinals, he avoided The Lightning Seeds "Three Lions," the team's official song when it hosted the tournament.

Now the song, with its repeated chorus of "football's coming home," is a staple again, No. 5 this week on YouTube UK's top music videos chart with more than 2 million views on the day of England's last match.

"'Football's coming home' is a song I couldn't even listen to for 20 years, frankly, so for me it has a slightly different feel," Southgate said Tuesday on the eve of England's World Cup semifinal match against Croatia. "But it's nice to hear people enjoying it again."

When the song first was released, the chorus proclaimed "Three lions on a shirt/Jules Rimet still gleaming/Thirty years of hurt/never stopped me dreaming." A 1998 update changed the third verse to "no more years of hurt."

England hasn't played in the semifinals of a major tournament since Southgate's penalty kick at Wembley was saved by Andreas Koepke 22 years ago, and Andrea Moeller put the next kick over David Seaman and under the crossbar. The most-cherished national team memory remains the 1966 World Cup final victory at Wembley over West Germany, a demarcation point in the island's history as much as 1066 (the Norman invasion) and 1707 (union with Scotland).

"It was a long time ago, so not too many of us can remember that far back," said midfielder Jordan Henderson, born in 1990.

The winner Wednesday advances to Sunday's final against France. Southgate wants to break stereotypes, and not just on the field.

"I'm rare breed. I'm an Englishman that doesn't drink tea," he said.

England and Croatia are teams that innovated over time but have generally been immutable during the World Cup, sticking to virtually identical starting lineups except for group phase finales, after advancement was secure. In the other four games, Croatia's only variable to its 4-2-3-1 formation was whether to start captain Luka Modric in a deep midfield role and Andrej Kramaric more advanced, or to move up Modric and start Marcelo Brozovic.

Right back Sime Vrsaljko limped off during the quarterfinal win over host Russia and goalkeeper Danijel Subasic had a hamstring injury during extra time but remained in the match. When asked about injuries, Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic responded through a translator with inconclusive palaver about Vrsaljko having "this niggle."

England has gone with a 3-5-2, and the only change was to start Ruben Loftus-Cheek in midfield after Dele Alli injured a thigh.

"The biggest thing that the gaffer's brought since he's come in, which he's brought right from day one, was identity, and about the way that we wanted to create a team," Henderson said. "You can see that togetherness on the pitch now, and I think that's valuable in crucial moments in big games, and yeah, I can definitely say this is most together England team that I've been involved in, and so I think that makes a massive difference and you get your rewards for that."

With an average age of 26, England is one of the youngest teams at the World Cup.

"We were never quite sure how far this team could go," Southgate said. "The age of the players, the improvement in the players, the hunger in the players has been apparent for everybody to see. We're really proud in the style that we've played, with the intelligence that we've played, and that we've performed under pressure and dealt with difficult situations in games where we've had to wait until the last minute to score, we've had to recover from conceding in last minute, we've been through extra time, penalties."

Croatia made its only semifinal appearance in 1998, losing 2-1 to host France. Defender Dejan Lovren is a teammate of Henderson's on Champions League finalist Liverpool, and Lovren bristled when asked about a 4-1 loss at Tottenham last October when England striker Harry Kane scored twice.

"It's completely irrelevant," he said through a translator. "Why didn't you ask me how I played well against him? You are just nitpicking my poor performances."

          Coach of England wins the nation's heart by being a nice guy      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

LONDON — In an age of tattoos, tongue piercings and tensions over Brexit, a soft-spoken man in a dark blue waistcoat and striped tie is uniting England amid dreams of victory in soccer's World Cup.

Coach Gareth Southgate is the buttoned-down leader of a new generation of players who speak softly and let their victories silence critics. And England supporters have found that refreshing after years of underperforming teams led by stars such as David Beckham, who became as much a celebrity as an athlete.

"He's very much about a team spirit. It's more about the collective — you can see it in the way he deals with the squad," said Paul Willis, who was in the stands last Saturday in Samara, Russia, when England reached the semifinals with a 2-0 victory over Sweden. "We had superstars, but we didn't have a team."

Southgate's focus on teamwork and civility has made him an unlikely icon in a country that is deeply divided by bitter arguments over plans to leave the European Union and a widening gap between rich and poor. England Captain Harry Kane may be the tournament's leading scorer, but fans are donning waistcoats and ties — even as the country enjoys an unusually hot summer — in homage to Southgate as pundits extol the 47-year-old coach's calm leadership.

"He has shown us the value of courtesy, kindness, hard work and that most derided of virtues, niceness," columnist India Knight wrote in the Sunday Times. "He has redefined not just how to be a manager, but how to be a man."

Southgate displayed his character after England's July 3 victory over Colombia, offering a supportive hug to Colombian player Mateus Uribe after his miss in a penalty shootout helped England advance. The England coach understood Uribe's agony, having missed a similar shot at the 1996 European championships. The moment of empathy also reminded the country how Southgate once lampooned his own failure with a Pizza Hut commercial in which he wore a bag over his head to shield his identity from angry fans.

Southgate's compassion sparked a hashtag for the coach's real and imagined acts of kindness such as "#GarethSouthgateWould stop and help you put the chain back on your bike even if he was all dressed in his waistcoat and late for the game."

Southgate became manager less than two years ago after the Football Association's first choice was forced out after unguarded comments to undercover reporters. Since then he has quietly ushered out the last of the old stars and brought together a group of youngsters who modestly shrug off compliments and give kudos to their teammates.

Perhaps more importantly, he recognized the contribution of the fans, something that had been eroded during the superstar era. After every game, Southgate and his players walk across the field to applaud the supporters who have traveled to Russia to cheer for the team.

"We had lost a bit of connection," Willis, a 57-year-old fan from Birmingham, said of past regimes. "That is now back. All the team and the back room applaud our input to the game."

That has also translated into huge support back home in football-mad England.

At least 20 million people, 38 percent of England's population, watched Saturday's victory over Sweden, according to figures from the BBC. Commentators say the actual number was much higher because so many people watched the game on huge screens in parks and shopping centers.

London authorities are inviting 30,000 fans to the city's Hyde Park for a screening of Wednesday's semifinal against Croatia. Fearing demand will far exceed that, authorities stressed that only those with tickets should come to the park. Ticket services reported hundreds of people were trying to dump theater tickets for Wednesday because they had more pressing business elsewhere.

Social media sites are urging fans to wear waistcoats — please don't call them vests — to the office ahead of the big match — a "Waistcoat Wednesday" if you will. Marks & Spencer, the official tailor to the England team, says sales of the grandfatherly garments have doubled during the World Cup.

Rio Ferdinand, one of the previous "golden generation" of players who is now a commentator for the BBC, has been leading the cheers for this year's team, asking fans to post video of their beer-throwing, chest-bearing, flag-waving celebrations after the win over Sweden.

On Sunday, Ferdinand tweeted his own mea culpa for past failures, while also highlighting Southgate's unique contribution.

"Why weren't the golden generation... the golden generation???" he tweeted. "We as players look at ourselves first...we never performed....but sometimes you have to be allowed to perform! Gareth is allowing this current @England to do this."

That's paying off.

Kane, who turns 25 later this month, has scored six goals in the tournament. Dele Alli, 22, came back from injury to score the team's second goal against Sweden. Fabian Delph, 28, played the last 15 minutes of Saturday's game after missing the previous game against Colombia because Southgate allowed him to go home for the birth of his third child.

Southgate himself recognizes the contributions of everyone, from the physiotherapists to the players who push their teammates in practice but rarely get into a game, even to fans back home.

"Our country has been through some difficult moments recently in terms of its unity, and I think sport has the power to do that and football in particular has the power to do that," he said. "So for us, we can feel the energy and we can feel the support from home, and that's, that's a very special feeling. It's a privilege."

Barring that, it does help to have a snappy waistcoat.

"Quite frankly, I don't care what he wears," Willis said. "He can wear a tutu if we carry on winning."

          Ronaldo leaving Real Madrid to join Italian club Juventus      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Cristiano Ronaldo is leaving Real Madrid to join Italian club Juventus in a move expected to benefit the Portugal forward's tax return.

Juventus said Tuesday it paid 112 million euros ($131.5 million) for Ronaldo, who signed a four-year deal with the Serie A champions.

The move brings an end to a hugely successful nine-year spell in Spain, and takes him further away from a tax fraud case that may end up costing the Portugal forward more than $20 million in fines.

"These years with Real Madrid and in this city of Madrid have been possibly the happiest of my life," Ronaldo wrote in an open letter. "My only feeling is of an enormous gratitude for this club, for these fans and for this city. I can only thank them all for the love and affection I have received.

"But I think the time has come to start a new phase in my life and that is why I have asked the club to accept my transfer. I feel that it is time, and I ask everyone, especially our fans, to please understand me."

Ronaldo joined Real Madrid in 2009 from Manchester United and was the Spanish club's all-time leading scorer with 451 goals in 438 matches. He helped the club win four Champions League titles — beating Juventus in the final in 2017 — and also won the league and cup twice each.

He has scored a record 120 Champions League goals, 105 of them since moving to Madrid — 12 more than Juventus managed in that same period.

But he was unhappy with the way the tax authorities treated him in Spain. Ronaldo, along with several other top players in the country, has been accused of tax fraud, with authorities saying the government was defrauded of 14.7 million euros ($17 million) from 2011-14. Unconfirmed media reports last month said Ronaldo had agreed to pay a fine of 18.8 million euros ($22 million).

In Italy, a new law caps tax on income generated from abroad at 100,000 euros ($117,000) per year for residents who have paid their taxes in other countries for at least nine of the last 10 years.

Other players targeted by Spanish tax authorities in recent years include Lionel Messi, Javier Mascherano and Luka Modric. Former Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho, now at Manchester United, was also investigated.

Ronaldo is currently on vacation in Greece following Portugal's elimination from the World Cup. Juventus president Andrea Agnelli flew out Tuesday to meet the 33-year-old forward.

"Real Madrid wants to express its gratitude to a player who has proven to be the best in the world and who has marked one of the greatest eras in the history of our club and of world soccer," Real Madrid said in a statement.

"In addition to the titles he won, Cristiano Ronaldo has been an example of dedication, work, responsibility, talent and determination," Madrid added. "For Real Madrid, Cristiano Ronaldo will always be one of its greatest symbols and a unique reference for the next generations. Real Madrid will always be his home."

Ronaldo signed a five-year deal with Madrid in 2016, saying he wanted to end his career at the club. But he has also publicly expressed his discontentment about being jeered at times by some Madrid fans at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium.

Ronaldo was also moved by the Juventus fans for giving him a standing ovation after he scored a spectacular goal against the Italian club at the Allianz Stadium in the Champions League quarterfinals last season.

"I gave a lot of thought to this and I know that the time has come for a new era," Ronaldo said. "I'm leaving, but this jersey, this shield and the Santiago Bernabeu will always feel as something that is mine wherever I go."

The signing broke the Serie A record, which Juventus set two years ago when it paid Napoli 90 million euros (then $99 million) for Gonzalo Higuain.

Ronaldo made his debut for Sporting Lisbon when he was 17. His crossover dribble was already famous when Alex Ferguson brought him to Manchester United ahead of the 2003-04 season and gave him the No. 7 shirt of the recently departed David Beckham.

He spent six seasons in England, winning three Premier League titles, one Champions League title and one FA Cup.

Ronaldo led Portugal to its first major title at the European Championship two years ago in France. He helped the Portuguese team reach the semifinals in his first World Cup in 2006.

Portugal was eliminated by Uruguay in the round of 16 of this year's tournament in Russia. Ronaldo scored four goals to take his tally to 85 for his country and break Ferenc Puskas' record as Europe's all-time leading international scorer.

          England fans trickling into Moscow for World Cup semifinals      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

MOSCOW — An influx of England fans is expected to descend on Moscow for the World Cup semifinals, but there's not much sign of them yet.

The Nikolskaya street near the Kremlin, elaborately decorated with hanging lights, has been the main gathering point for fans in the Russian capital.

A few dozen England fans were there on Tuesday afternoon, with those singing team songs heavily outnumbered by passers-by filming them on phones.

Kevin Miles of the Football Supporters Federation expects between 5,000 and 7,000 fans for Wednesday's semifinal between England and Croatia, but admits "a lot of people are doing it last minute, so it's very difficult to put numbers on it."

Airlines have offered extra places on flights to Moscow and some Russians have sold their tickets to the match after the host nation lost to Croatia in the quarterfinals. Still, Miles says high prices for flights and tickets — whether bought through FIFA or from touts — means fans can't be as spontaneous as they'd like.

"The prices have put a lot of people off," Miles told The Associated Press. "There's a lot of people having that idea at home and getting online and seeing the costs and practicalities."

England's influx comes amid political turmoil at home over Britain's exit from the European Union, and as British police linked the death of a British woman to the poisonings of ex-spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia in March. The British government has blamed Russia for the earlier poisonings.

Some fans are expected to travel without tickets, partly because the FSF identified a loophole in Russia's visa-free system for the World Cup for ticketholders. Russian authorities are issuing "Fan IDs," which mean fans with tickets don't need visas, but the application system allows them to use numbers from other people's tickets and even tickets from old games.

"The experience so far of the first five games has been that the place has been very hospitable and very friendly," Miles said. "There's plenty of opportunities to watch the match without a ticket if you want to come, so people shouldn't feel put off at all. No doubt it'll be a great atmosphere on final day in particular."

England fans congregated at some bars on Nikolskaya on Tuesday, but there were far fewer fans than from the big crowds of South Americans who turned the street into Moscow's party central in previous weeks. The few Croats there were outnumbered by sombrero-wearing stragglers from Mexico's thousands-strong fan army, even though Mexico was eliminated eight days before.

Giant England flags were tied to fences, bearing the names of lower-league clubs such as Blackpool, Bristol City and Tamworth.

England fan Barry Walker said he'd been at England's two knockout games and expected fan numbers to double for the semifinals.

"I've loved it," Walker said. "Russians just want to buy us drinks."

          Paris, Russia, to turn French for World Cup semifinals      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

PARIS, Russia — They're getting the World Cup croissants ready in Paris.

The Russian village of Paris, that is.

The village just outside the Russian city of Nizhny Novgorod is embracing its French links ahead of the World Cup semifinal match between France and Belgium.

The village cafe is decorated with images of the Eiffel Tower and is preparing croissants for the game, plus a Russian menu for any French guests who might happen to drop by. The village fire station is setting up benches outside for the crew's friends and relatives to watch the game and has hung a French flag from an old fire truck.

"We're going to support France today because our home is known as Little Paris," Mayor Sergei Gromov said. "We were supporting Russia but now that it's turned out like this (with Russia eliminated), we're going to support France and wish it success."

The village's full name is In Memory Of The Paris Commune, a reference to a socialist rebellion in 19th-century France. The name is so unwieldy most locals use Paris for short.

Not everyone in Paris is pro-France, though. Elena Vasilyeva said she will cheering for Belgium.

"They're a real team," she said. "I like them more."

          World Cup preview: Croatia vs. England semifinal      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

A capsule look at Wednesday's World Cup semifinal match between Croatia and England in Moscow (2 p.m. EDT, 9 p.m. local):

WHY CROATIA WILL WIN

A generation of players in their primes, or just past their primes, led by a strong midfield with Ivan Pericic (29), Ivan Rakatic (30) and Luka Modric (32), with Mario Mandzukic (32) heading the attack.

WHY ENGLAND WILL WIN

After falling short for generations, coach Gareth Southgate has put together a team that is playing like a team. Striker Harry Kane was the only standout heading into the tournament. Plus the Croats are coming off consecutive penalty-kick wins and figure to have to more tired legs.

PROJECTED LINEUPS

Croatia: 4-2-3-1 — Subasic; Vrsaljko, Lovren, Vida, Strinic; Rakitic, Modric; Rebic, Kamaric, Perisic; Mandzukic

England: 3-5-2 — Pickford; Walker, Stones, Maguire; Henderson, Trippier, Alli, Lingard, Young; Sterling, Kane

MAN IN THE MIDDLE

Cuneyt Cakir of Turkey will referee his second straight World Cup semifinal match, after Argentina's penalty-kick win over the Netherlands four years ago. Cakir worked Iran's 1-0 win over Morocco and Argentina's 2-1 victory over Nigeria in the group stage this year, and he refereed Barcelona's 3-1 victory over Juventus in the 2015 Champions League final.

WORLD CUP HISTORY

In England's last semifinal match, Andreas Brehme's 60th-minute shot deflected off an onrushing Paul Parker at the penalty arc and looped over goalkeeper Peter Shilton to put West Germany ahead. England tied the score when Parker's cross bounced off Juergen Kohler and fell to Gary Lineker, who beat goalkeeper Bodo Illgner to the far post in the 80th minute. In the shootout, Stuart Pearce was stopped by Illgner on England's fourth attempt, Olaf Thon converted for a 4-3 lead and Chris Waddle shot over the crossbar.

Croatia went ahead in the 1998 semifinals only 26 seconds into the second half when Aljosa Asanovic split the defense with a pass, and Davor Suker scored his fifth goal of the tournament. Lilian Thuram tied the score a minute later after stealing the ball from Zvonimir Boban near the Croat penalty area and exchanging passes with Youri Djorkaeff. Thuram scored the go-ahead goal with a curling shot in the 70th minute, and France won 2-1.

CROATIA GOALS

vs. Nigeria (2-0): own-goal (32), Modric (71-penalty)

vs. Argentina (3-0): Rebic (53), Modric (80), Rakatic (90+1)

vs. Iceland (2-1): Badelj (53), Perisic (90)

vs. Denmark (1-1, 3-2 penalty kicks): Mandzukic (4)

vs. Russia (2-2, 4-3 penalty kicks): Kramaric (39), Vida (101)

ENGLAND GOALS

vs. Tunisia (2-1): Kane (11, 90+1)

vs. Panama (6-1): Stones (8, 40), Kane (22, 45+1-penalty, 62), Lingard (36)

vs. Belgium (0-1)

vs. Colombia (1-1, 4-3 penalty kicks): Kane (57-penalty)

vs. Sweden (2-0): Maguire (30), Alli (59)

HEAD TO HEAD

Croatians played for Yugoslavia before splitting off in 1990. England has four wins, two losses and one draw in the matchup, including a 4-2 victory in the group stage of the 2004 European Championship. The teams have not met since qualifying for the 2010 World Cup, when England won 4-1 in Zagreb and 5-1 at Wembley Stadium. England goalkeeper Paul Robinson kicked at and missed a backpass from Gary Neville, allowing an own-goal in a 2-0 loss in a European qualifier in 2006. Goalkeeper Scott Carson fumbled Niki Kranjcar's shot into the net for the opening goal as Croatia won 3-2 at Wembley the following year, causing England to miss Euro 2008. England coach Steve McClaren held a large red-and-blue umbrella on the sidelines and was mocked as the "Wally with the brolly," and he was fired the next day. They are drawn into the same group of the initial Nations League, a new competition kicking off this autumn.

SUSPENSIONS

None

INJURY CONCERNS

Croatia right back Sime Vrsaljko walked slowly off the field with an apparent leg injury when he was replaced in extra time of the quarterfinals.

England midfielder Dele Alli has not played a full match since injuring a thigh against Tunisia.

JUST SAYING

Croatia: "It won't be easy for us. We will focus in the next few days to recover as much as possible. We will look for the best solutions ahead the match, considering we have a few players with minor issues after the match against Russia. It won't be easy, but to get into the semifinals it's a new motive for us." — Croatia coach Zlatko Dalic, through a translator

England: "Probably 18 months ago I talked to them about if you have success with England, it will be so much bigger than anything you can imagine, and I think that is probably starting to register with them now." — England coach Gareth Southgate

          Germany makes Mesut Ozil the scapegoat for World Cup exit      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

BERLIN — Same coach, same team manager, same president.

And yet after almost two weeks of reflection, the German soccer federation (DFB) appears to have decided midfielder Mesut Ozil is the main culprit for the team's shock early World Cup exit.

Team manager Oliver Bierhoff wondered in a newspaper interview if Ozil should even have been taken to the tournament in Russia, while DFB president Reinhard Grindel followed up by demanding the player provide an "answer."

Joachim Loew has not commented on the matter since deciding to stay on as coach.

Ozil, long a key player for Loew, has been in the firing line since he and national teammate Ilkay Gundogan posed for photos with Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in May. Both German-born players have Turkish roots.

While Gundogan attempted to distance himself from the incident in Britain, Ozil has maintained his silence - antagonizing the same people who said the issue had been dealt with before the World Cup.

"Only DFB officials can come up with the idea that a photo with Erdogan is responsible for a defeat against the football-giants of South Korea," North Rhine-Westphalia minister president Armin Laschet said on Twitter.

Following Germany's first-round exit, Bierhoff told newspaper Die Welt it might have been better to omit Ozil from the tournament. Bierhoff pulled back after criticism, saying it was a misunderstanding and he did not intend to single out any player for the team's failure.

But Grindel kept the issue alive, telling the latest edition of Kicker magazine: "It's true that Mesut has not commented yet. That has disappointed a lot of fans because they have questions and expect an answer. They are right to expect this answer. That's why it's totally clear for me that Mesut should speak on the issue."

Grindel has received just as much criticism as Bierhoff did. The Berliner Zeitung newspaper accused the DFB president of "throwing oil on the fire to shine a good light on himself."

The DFB itself arguably made the Erdogan-photo affair worse with its public admonishment of Gundogan and Ozil. Grindel was scathing in his criticism of the players, who were summoned for talks.

Now Grindel says, "We have to wait for the sporting analysis and see whether Joachim Loew still counts on him."

Ozil has been one of Germany's standout players since starring at the 2010 World Cup. His performances earned a switch from Schalke to Real Madrid. He has made 92 appearances for Germany, contributing 23 goals from midfield.

Ozil was not the only player to underperform in Russia, where defending champion Germany was knocked out after defeats to Mexico and South Korea. But his performances have come under the most scrutiny because of the Erdogan photos and because of his own high profile within the team.

"He and Gundogan suffered from what happened before the World Cup because they have been vindicated in Germany," Ozil's former Arsenal coach, Arsene Wenger, told Bein Sports.

Gundogan and Ozil were whistled by German fans during matches, while both have been subjected to abuse off the pitch, too.

German comedian Oliver Pocher impersonated Ozil with large fake eyes, saying he was going "home" on vacation and listing off the Turkish cities he was going to visit before returning.

Far-right politicians have been slating the player, while journalist Claus Strunz said "Mesut Ozil does not belong to Germany" after noting he does not sing the German anthem.

"No DFB official has condemned the racist comments against Ozil," the Schwaebische Zeitung newspaper said.

Ozil's father, Mustafa, told the Bild tabloid that Bierhoff's statements were "an affront. In my opinion they only serve to save one's own skin."

Mustafa Ozil, who fell out with his son in 2013, suggested a racial motive for the attacks.

"Unfortunately there are still people in the German population who have reservations and prejudices against us of Turkish descent," he said.

"In Mesut's place I'd resign (from the Germany team). But that's just my personal opinion."

          Interview of Harris-Clichy Peterson by Brian Shoemaker      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Interview of Harris-Clichy Peterson by Brian Shoemaker Peterson, Harris-Clichy Col. Peterson was a participant in the expedition to Antarctica, 1946-47, led by Finn Ronne. Born in Boston to a mother from Uzbekistan and a father from Sweden, he was privileged to enjoy an outstanding education at prestigious Boston Latin School, and briefly attended Harvard before joining the Marine Corps at age seventeen during WWII. He saw combat duty, won a Silver Star, and, as a radar officer, developed impressive technological skills. He was a Second Lieutenant at the time of his discharge. After WWII, Peterson returned to Harvard. As an undergraduate student he found part-time employment with Roche Metallurgical Laboratory making high temperature thermocouples, and he perfected certain technical skills that would be beneficial in his later career. He graduated from Harvard with a B.S. in Physics. After his trip to Antarctica, Peterson graduated from Harvard Business School in 1950. Still a Reserve Office in the Marine Corps, he was called back to active duty for the Korean War. He served for two and one-half years in Korea, and saw a lot of combat. Once that war ended he worked as an investment banker with Kidder-Peabody. This led to a position for many years in Peru with the W.R. Grace Company. His wife is Peruvian and their children were raised there. He spoke favorably of the former President of Peru, Alberto Fujimora, and candidly about economic problems facing Peru today, especially those of the Indian population. At the time of the interview Peterson had left Peru, although he still maintained a house there, and he was working for an unnamed company in Boston. He has also done consulting work in Saudi Arabia. In late 1945 Peterson joined the Ronne expedition. He was personally interviewed by Ronne, whom he remembers as a remarkably physically fit man, a good entrepreneur, and one who knew how to conceive, organize, staff, and get funded innovative new projects. Peterson concedes that Ronne wasn’t perfect but he was able to get things done that Ph.D’s and M.D.’s could likely not accomplish. Departure was delayed briefly when a Beechcraft C-46 aircraft, outfitted with expensive trimetrigon photography equipment, crashed and was destroyed when the hoisting apparatus for the ship failed. Fortunately General Curtis LeMay moved quickly to find a new, acceptable, similarly equipped aircraft, and had it flown to the expedition enroute. There were also two other aircraft, both single-engine. Before departure for Antarctica in early 1946, Peterson obtained contracts for his own scientific research, one from the Franklin Institute for cosmic radiation research, and another from General Electric to seed clouds with iodine to make precipitation. The City of Beaumont, an ocean-going tugboat of about 1500 tons, was lent by the Navy. Once underway, Peterson was called on to fix the electrical rudder control system of the ship, as well as the steering, radar, and other equipment. While passing through the Panama Canal the ship crashed into shore because of a failure in the steering system. It was Peterson who figured out how to fix it. A sad problem was that enroute many of the sled dogs died of dysentery; new dogs had to be obtained in Chile. The ship stopped in Peru and Chile. In Valparaiso two women, Jenny Darlington and Edith Ronne (wife of Finn) joined the expedition. There was some grumbling, and a few strong complaints, from some of the men about women participants. Several sailors got into minor trouble with the police on shore. The Chilean, Jorge Georges de Giorgio, joined the expedition in Valparaiso. The last stop in South America was Punta Arenas, Chile, on the Strait of Magellan. The Drake Passage was “horrendous” with 40 to 45 crest waves. Winds howled at 60 to 70 miles per hour. But once they approached the Antarctic Peninsula the weather calmed, but then they had to watch out for icebergs. Their destination was East Base and Stonington Island in Marguerite Bay. The base was quickly set up, which was fortunate since winter came upon them quickly. Unfortunately, parts of the base had been ransacked earlier by Argentines, and so many repairs were necessary. The British had a base nearby, a fact which Ronne resented since he thought their presence threatened the prestige or uniqueness of his own expedition. There was little cooperation or contact with the British. The British stayed close to their base, did little research, and seemed most interested in planting their flag in case a territorial claim might later be made. One well known member of the British party was Bernie Stonehouse, a meteorologist, and an authority on penguins, and known today as the “grand old man of the Antarctic.” Once in Antarctica, Peterson set about to discharge his scientific duties. He measured solar and cosmic radiation, and atmospheric refraction. He used a heliometer to measure the heat of the sun. His chief responsibility was meteorology. He was not directly involved with the photography, specifically the trimetrigon camera work, but reported that it was handled well, and that the Air Force obtained excellent photographs. Other men got the three planes up and running, and all were well settled in their quarters before the full force of winter hit. Coal, and also kerosene, was used for heating. CITCO, the Venezuelan owned petroleum company, provided much of the fuel needed. The sled dogs were always kept outside unless they were sick. They were all chained to a line, and as the dogs slept the snow would drift up around them. They would stick their noses up through the snow, and this provided the dogs a kind of insulation. When put on a sled the dogs seemed to enjoy the experience. Peterson said that dogs were superior to tractors since if you hit a crevasse you could take the dog team apart and carry them one by one over the crevasse. Dog teams would be flown into advance areas. If this were along the coast a seal might be killed to feed the dogs. Once, Peterson and Bob Dodson spent several weeks alone some 6,000 to 7,000 feet up on the Plateau. They went to make meteorological observations, and carried an anemometer and other equipment. The weather was terrible, and so they could not be resupplied by airplane. When conditions became untenable, and supplies ran low, the two men started to walk back to East Base some 20 to 40 miles away. They walked in total darkness since it was in the middle of the Antarctic winter night. “No problem,” or so they thought. “We had good compasses.” The men decided – contrary to the usual practice -- not to rope themselves together since they feared that if one fell into a crevasse he would pull the other down with him. Their decision would soon be severely tested. Peterson fell into a deep crevasse, possibly 130 feet down. He was knocked out and wedged solidly in the ice. Dodson marked the site carefully with trail flags, took exact compass readings, and returned to base to organize a rescue operation. After two days he was found and rescued. Dr. Butson, a British surgeon, the smallest man on either base, was lowed into the crevasse and miraculously freed Peterson. Peterson suffered severe frostbite, but had no broken bones, and after several months of bed rest he finally recovered. Once Peterson recovered, he participated in spring fieldwork. The New York Times had given the expedition an early version of a facsimile, or fax, machine. By use of a rhombic antenna Peterson used the machine to send weather maps and personal messages every day to New Orleans. He was also deeply involved in map making and trimetrigon photography. Typically this work involved the Weddell Sea, the Antarctic Peninsula, and the Ronne Ice Shelf. Much, if not most, of the exploration of these sites was done by air. By using air drops of fuel tanks planes could venture as much as 1000 miles from East Base. Sometimes geologists, such as Nichols, would be dropped off by plane to make observations on land, at times with a dog team. Peterson said it was possible, but not certain, that this was the first time in Antarctica that dog teams had ever been dropped off by air. This would have been an historic event. (In later years snowmobiles were used to pull the dog sleds.) In the summer Peterson was involved in measuring solar radiation, which didn’t exist in the winter. Usually this could be done at the base. He lacked any equipment to measure ultraviolet radiation. All measurements had to be manually recorded by pencil on paper. He never wrote a verbal text of his scientific work, nor did he keep a diary. He reports that he may have been the first person to make cosmic radiation measurements in Antarctica. There was never any attempt made to take ionospheric measurements. Weather balloons were launched four times a day, every six hours. Hydrogen was made from tanks. Regular reports were sent to the New York Times, one of the sponsors of the expedition. Edith “Jackie” Ronne usually wrote these up, and Kelsey, the radioman, would send them out by Morse code. Occasionally radio contact could be made with a family member back home with the cooperation of a radio amateur. Peterson was unmarried at the time. The pilots for the expedition were Darlington, Lassiter, and Adams. The two-engine aircraft was a Beechcraft C-46. There was also a single-engine plane. Darlington’s wife, Jenny, assisted in generating publicity for the expedition. Peterson remembers her fondly as a cheerful, pleasant, and helpful person. The members of the Ronne Expedition finished their duties by the end of the summer of 1947. The base was boarded up, a key given (presumably) to the British Expedition nearby, and with the help of the icebreakers Edisto and Burton Island, the men (and two women) boarded the ship to leave. Their year’s work had been completed. Once the ship reached Punta Arenas Jenny Darlington, who was pregnant, left the party so that her child could be safely delivered. The ship continued on to New York. After writing their reports the men were free to go their separate ways. In later years the only member of the expedition Peterson continued to see was Bob Dodson. Looking back on his trip to Antarctica Peterson considered it a “wonderful experience.” He was very loyal to Finn Ronne although he acknowledged some of his foibles. He saw Ronne as a strong leader, as a man who could get things done. Ike Schlossback was Ronne’s second in command. Peterson remembers him as fair-minded, and of sound intellect and judgment, but also as one who was reluctant to exert authority. Consequently Ronne didn’t really have anyone to assist him who could function as an Executive Officer. Peterson’s experience with the Ronne expedition proved invaluable in later life. It helped him to see that in any group there would likely be some troublemakers who would defy authority, and Peterson learned how to conduct himself effectively in such a situation. On balance Finn Ronne did things right. The mission was accomplished, everybody got home safe. There was no loss of life, no permanent injury, and no equipment lost.

          Re: Sanders Speaks Out for UVM Medical Center Nurses      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Sean L -- "I think Portland, ME is a closer analog than Boston for Burlington in terms of its general qualities (population, region, major medical center, je ne sais quoi)."

A reasonable comparison (and thanks for digging into the data). But there are other factors, including opportunity. Here are the number of registered nurses in each MSA.

2,370 Burlington
4,520 Portland
43,150 Boston
122,780 NYC

This matters because the competition is based in part on where the jobs are (along with wages). Not surprisingly, there are considerably more annual openings in NYC and Boston (from both growth and replacement) than in Burlington or Portland.

Moreover, most people are in relationships (or at least share housing) so household income is not usually the same as a nurses income so our cost of living musings are of limited value. Obviously, wages can't be based on the personal circumstances of employees, but a 30% higher wage for the nurse in a two-income household is likely to be a significant consideration for a couple looking to relocate (especially since the spouse or partner's income will also be higher in Boston or NYC).

          Re: Sanders Speaks Out for UVM Medical Center Nurses      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Perhaps there are aspects of the Boston and Burlington markets beyond cost of living that account for some of the difference in median nurse pay. While Doug Hoffer is using superior data, interpretations may vary. Again, I think this is a flawed way to determine fair compensation, but...

I think Portland, ME is a closer analog than Boston for Burlington in terms of its general qualities (population, region, major medical center, je ne sais quoi). To add to this ongoing Assumptions/Hoffer debate (using Hoffer's dataset from BEA), regional price parity between Portland and Burlington are pretty close (101 and 103.2 respectively). Looking at the Bureau of Labor Statistics, median hourly wages for nurses in Portland and Burlington are $32.30 and $32.01 respectively. If this were the only analysis I used, I would determine that UVM nurses are reasonably compensated.

Or use Worcester, MA if you want a more favorable outcome for nurses. Small city with the same cost of living according to BEA, but nurse median hourly wage is $38.45. In this example our nurses need a 20% raise.

Conclusions? I hope the UVM nurses get a fair and reasonable raise. Also, if we keep this going we will definitely solve this complex issue within the confines of an internet comments section (sarcasm).

One more thing. The Dept. of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) publishes "Fair Market Rents for all counties and metropolitan statistical areas. Here are the 2018 figures for the Boston & Burlington MSAs. Last I checked they used the 45th percentile (just below the median). Note: I don't think HUD's methodology is optimal, but it's the same everywhere so the numbers are apples to apples.

One bedroom
$1,421 Boston
$1,121 Burlington

Two bedroom
$1,740 Boston
$1,442 Burlington

Boston is certainly higher, but not nearly twice as high.

"Here's greater Boston: $600,000"

Your own citation says otherwise. The one with the median price in all the surrounding towns shows over 40 towns at less than $400,000.

There is no doubt that some housing is more expensive in Boston. But based on what you provided, it is not accurate to make a blanket statement that "Housing is twice as expensive in greater Boston as in northwest Vermont."

It seems the contentions here are that nurses need more pay so they will be in line with pay for nurses elsewhere, and thus more nurses will seek jobs in Burlington and remain. That is reasonable, but one must use cost of living differences (+ and -) if one is using other areas to compare pay to. the salaries paid to doctors and nurses and other staff, is the largest expense driver for health care and health insurance, so if a union is seeking more for their members, it is reasonable to use good data to show why this is justified. Whatever the stated $42/hr pay in Boston area is equal to in Burlington area equates to, given the differences in cost of living additions and subtractions, that would be a fair pay rate.

@ Hoffer:

No, it is you who ignores the core issue here. You seem to argue that the cost of living for a UVMMC nurse is the same as for a Boston nurse. We all know that that's an absurd proposition, Boston being one of the most expensive areas of the country. Yet you continue to argue for it, citing statistics for "Boston MSA" v. "Burlington-S.Burlington MSA." Does your data actually show that the cost of living for a Boston nurse v. a UVMMC nurse is the same? You refuse to answer, bc you know it's not.

          Bills' LeSean McCoy denies allegation of bloodying girlfriend      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Police acknowledged Tuesday that a woman was assaulted during a home invasion at a suburban Atlanta house owned by NFL star LeSean McCoy, hours after graphic posts on social media accused the Buffalo Bills running back of bloodying his former girlfriend.

One female was treated and released from the hospital, while another sustained a minor injury during a targeted invasion early Tuesday, Milton police said in a release responding to requests by The Associated Press.

McCoy denied allegations posted on social media earlier in the day accusing him of hurting his former girlfriend.

"For the record, the totally baseless and offensive claims made against me today on social media are completely false," McCoy said in a statement released on two of his social media accounts. "Further more, I have not had any direct contact with any of the people involved in months."

McCoy was responding to an Instagram post from a person who said she is friends with the injured woman. The post showed a graphic photo of the former girlfriend and accused McCoy of physically abusing her, his son and his dog, as well as injecting steroids.

The woman who posted the accusations and the ex-girlfriend have not responded to messages left by The Associated Press, though both Instagram accounts showed pictures of the women together in London during a music festival, with comments on each other's posts. The AP generally does not identify people who may have been victims of abuse.

Police said it's not clear how many suspects were involved, but one demanded specific items from one of the women in the home.

Police spokesman Charles Barstow said he could not release any further details.

The Bills issued a statement saying they have been in contact with McCoy and the NFL and will continue gathering information. NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said the league is reviewing the matter.

McCoy turns 30 on Thursday and preparing to enter his fourth season with the Bills. He spent his first six seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, where he led the NFL in yards rushing in 2013 before being traded to Buffalo in 2015. He has never been suspended by the NFL for using performance enhancing substances during his nine-year career.

Fulton County Magistrate Court records show that McCoy initiated eviction proceedings against the former girlfriend in July 2017, saying that the pair were no longer in a relationship.

Court records show two attempts to serve the former girlfriend with the document but no other action. Eviction paperwork was filed again last month with McCoy listed as the plaintiff and the woman and "and all others" listed as the defendant.

The sworn statement to initiate the proceedings was signed by Tamarcus Porter, who played football with McCoy in college.

Porter was arrested with McCoy following a nightclub brawl involving off-duty police officers in Philadelphia in February 2016. No charges were filed after prosecutors said they could not prove who initiated the fight in which two officers were injured.

The sworn statement signed by Porter said McCoy is the owner of the house and that his ex-girlfriend was refusing to leave.

No attorney for McCoy is listed in the June 10 filing.

The former girlfriend challenged the eviction June 22, saying she had been in a relationship with McCoy for at least two years and that she and her children have lived with McCoy at his house since October 2016, according to a motion filed by her lawyer.

A hearing on the woman's motion had been scheduled for Tuesday afternoon, but her attorney requested a delay because of a family emergency. The judge issued an order resetting the case 30 days.

McCoy discussed marriage with her over Memorial Day and, on May 29, gave her "a substantial gift," the motion says. McCoy left Georgia the next day and had not returned, the motion says.

The woman went to Virginia on May 31 to attend her sister's graduation. While she was gone, on June 1, McCoy had some of his friends, family members and others remove her furniture and furnishings without her knowledge, the motion says.

The woman saw this happening through security cameras that she could monitor on her cellphone and called the police, the motion says. The police stopped the removal.

The eviction papers were served on the woman's 16-year-old son on June 11.

The woman's lawyer argues that serving the eviction papers on a minor was improper and invalid and the proceedings should be quashed. The lawyer also argues that since Porter is not an attorney, the case should be dismissed.

The woman's attorney claims the eviction action was "completely falsified" by Porter, that McCoy never asked her or her children to leave the home. The last time the pair spoke was on June 1, when McCoy said he was going to meet the woman in Virginia for her sister's graduation.

          NFLPA, league will meet to discuss grievance over anthem policy      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The NFL Players Association filed a grievance Tuesday challenging the league’s national anthem policy.

In a statement, the NFLPA called the policy “inconsistent with the collective bargaining agreement,” noting that it “infringes on player rights.” The league and the Players Association have agreed to engage in discussions regarding the issue, according to the union.

The policy, which was approved by owners in late May, stipulates that all personnel on the field must “stand and show respect for the flag.” Players can remain in the locker room for the anthem if they do not intend to stand. Teams will be subject to fines from the league if its players choose to sit or kneel during the anthem. Additionally, teams can fine personnel, including players, for violating the policy.

The new rule has been widely criticized by players across the league, including those in New England. In May, Patriots safety Devin McCourty summed up his thoughts with three words: “This is dumb.”

“I just don’t think that was the right way, to try to lay the hammer down,” McCourty said following an OTA session. “The NFL is a group where you have owners and players, but it can work together. We’ll see how that works out, plays itself out.”

McCourty suggested an alternate solution: All players remain in the locker room for the anthem.

“It was like that before I got to the NFL (in 2009),” McCourty said. “As captains we came out towards the end to be ready for the coin toss, but we never saw the national anthem.”

Former Patriots defensive end Chris Long, now with the Philadelphia Eagles, also ripped the league for instituting the policy.

“This is fear of a diminished bottom line,” Long wrote on his Twitter account in May. “It’s also fear of a president turning his base against a corporation. This is not patriotism. Don’t get it confused. These owners don’t love America more than the players demonstrating and taking real action to improve it. It also lets you, the fan, know where our league stands.”

The national anthem became a hot-button issue this past September when President Donald Trump blasted players who chose to kneel as a way to protest racial and social injustices in America.

At the time, the league’s game operations manual recommended that players “should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking.” There was no rule in place mandating that all players stand.

Hundreds of NFL players opted to kneel for the anthem in the weekend following Trump’s comments. Seventeen Patriots took a knee prior to their Week 3 game against the Texans. For the remainder of the season, however, all Patriots stood for the anthem, linking arms with each other in the moments before each game.

          NFL players union files grievance over anthem policy      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

NEW YORK — The NFL Players Association filed a grievance with the league on Tuesday challenging its national anthem policy.

The union says that the new policy, which the league imposed without consultation with the NFLPA, is inconsistent with the collective bargaining agreement and infringes on players' rights. The filing met a statute of limitations deadline and will be heard by an independent arbitrator, an NFLPA spokesman said.

In May, the NFL approved its national anthem policy at its owners meetings in Atlanta. The policy allows players to protest during the national anthem by staying in the locker room, but forbids them from sitting or taking a knee if they're on the field or the sidelines.

Teams will be subject to fines if players don't comply and will have the option of punishing players.

When the league announced the policy, Commissioner Roger Goodell called it a compromise aimed at putting the focus back on football after a tumultuous year in which television ratings dipped nearly 10 percent; some blamed the protests for such a drop. The union said at that time that it would file a grievance against any change in the collective bargaining agreement.

The union said Tuesday it has proposed having its executive committee talking to the NFL instead of proceeding with litigation. The union said the NFL has agreed to those discussions.

The NFL declined to comment about the union's action.

In 2016, then-49ers quarterback, Colin Kaepernick began protesting police brutality and social injustice by kneeling during the national anthem, and the demonstration spread to other players and teams. It became one of the most controversial and sensitive issues in the NFL, with players saying their messages last year were being misconstrued, while others — including President Donald Trump — called them unpatriotic. Trump even said NFL owners should fire any player who refused to stand during the anthem.

Following those comments, more than 200 players protested during the anthem that weekend before the number of protesters dwindled as the season progressed.

"We're here for a bigger platform," Raiders tight end Jared Cook said during the spring. "We're not just athletes. We're people that live this. It's people in our neighborhood, it's people that we grew up with, it's people that we know who are actually living through these circumstances. So when we speak on it, it's not like we're just speaking out of the side of our neck. It's things that actually touch home and things that we can actually relate to.

"All I have to say is, I just think it's sad that it's veered from something that stood for good and the whole narrative has changed into something that's negative when that was not what it was initially about in the first place."

The NFL started requiring players to be on the field for the anthem in 2009 — the year it signed a marketing deal with the military.

"We want people to be respectful of the national anthem. We want people to stand," Goodell said at the May meetings, when he dismissed concerns about the lack of union involvement by contending the league met with countless players over the past year.

"We've been very sensitive on making sure that we give players choices," the commissioner added, "but we do believe that moment is an important moment and one that we are going to focus on."

The league and the Players Coalition have been working in tandem on efforts to support player initiatives in the community and for a variety of social issues. The NFL is committing $90 million over the next seven years to social justice causes in a three-segment plan that involves league players.

          Panthers owner under contract to keep Richardson statue      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — While new Carolina Panthers owner David Tepper would like the focus to be on his plans for the team's future, he cannot completely put the franchise's sullied past behind him.

Tepper has to keep the prominent statue of Panthers' founder Jerry Richardson outside of the stadium as part of the NFL-record $2.2 billion deal he agreed to in June after Richardson decided to sell the team in December amid reports of sexual and racial misconduct in the workplace.

Tepper said Tuesday when he was introduced as the team's new owner that he's "contractually obligated" to keep the 13-foot high statue of Richardson standing alongside two growling panthers where it is.

The league substantiated the allegations against Richardson following a six-month investigation and fined him $2.75 million.

Fans have expressed their desire on social media and sports talk shows to remove the statue, which was built in 2016.

And while Tepper said contractually he can't do that, he spoke repeatedly about changing the environment of the Panthers workplace.

Tepper said there will be "no impediment" in employees feeling comfortable coming forward if they if they have any problems on the business side of the organization.

He wants to create an environment where "everybody feels safe like a family."

Sports Illustrated reported in December, citing unnamed sources, that Richardson made sexually suggestive comments to women and on at least one occasion directed a racial slur at an African-American Panthers scout. The report states that he reached settlements that included non-disclosure requirements forbidding the parties from discussing the details.

"Listen, whatever was, was. This is now," Tepper said. "This is going to be an open place. So there are not going to be non-disclosure agreements, no matter what, in this new place. That was then, this is now."

The Panthers are only tied to Charlotte through June 2019 in terms of a stadium agreement, but Tepper reiterated the city is "the most logical place" to keep the team, although adding that a "redo" is necessary.

The Panthers and the city of Charlotte came to an agreement on improvements for the team's stadium in 2013, calling for the city to contribute about $87 million for renovations to Bank of America Stadium in exchange for a six-year hard tether to keep the NFL franchise in Charlotte.

Tepper's focus right now is on new practice facilities.

He said the Panthers are "falling behind a little bit" other teams in the league.

He is considering moving the team's practice facilities to South Carolina, in part to keep both states interested in the team. The Panthers currently practice on three fields within walking distance to their downtown stadium. Tepper said that valuable land could be used for developmental purposes.

Tepper, who grew up playing football, also said he wants more events at the team's stadium, including high school state championship football games and the "right kind of concerts."

He is excited about the football side of the team, praising two-time AP Coach of the Year Ron Rivera and his hiring of new offensive coordinator Norv Turner to replace Mike Shula.

"I'm not looking to do too much there," Tepper said of the coaching side.

However, Tepper plans to hire a new team president to replace Danny Morrison, who left last year, and former COO Tina Becker, who resigned on Monday after seven months in the position. He said he has two replacement candidates in mind, both with some marketing background.

He also likes the makeup of the team's roster with training camp right around the corner, citing how involved players are in the community and charity work.

He cited Spider-Man, saying that "with great power comes great responsibility."

Smuttynose Brewery is back up and running on the Seacoast after declaring bankruptcy and being sold at auction earlier this year. North Hampton-based Runnymede Investments bought Smuttynose after that auction, and brought in former Boston Beer Company CEO Rich Lindsay to head up the brewery. Lindsay says since then, Smuttynose has restarted its canning line, released two new beers and revamped the menu at its brewery restaurant. They've also added new staff and training programs. Smuttynose hosted Gov. Chris Sununu in Hampton Tuesday, to thank his administration for speeding up the regulatory process as the brewery changed hands. Toasting with one of Smuttynose’s new IPAs, Sununu said he was happy to do it. "Look, my philosophy on business is, tell me what I can do to help, and then I'll get the heck out of the way,” Sununu said. “And that's what government should be doing." The brewery employs more than 60 people and brings in $10 million dollars a year in revenue.

          7/10 Games: 15-Hit Shutout; Homer Per Inning; 30 For Willie; Long Gone Garrett & More      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
  • 1901 - The Boston Beaneaters collected 15 hits in 12 innings against Pittsburgh, but failed to score in a 1-0 loss at Exposition Field, setting a record for most hits with no runs. It was part of a four-game sweep by the Bucs. The Bucs got four hits off Bill Dineen, who lost to Jack Chesbro. The Pirates won when Honus Wagner reached second on a throwing error, went to third on a bunt single and scored when Dineen’s pickoff toss to first went by 1B Pat Moran. 
Tommy Leach 1909-11 T206
  • 1908 - At Exposition Park, the Bucs overcame a 4-0 NY Giants lead to win 7-6 on Tommy Leach’s ninth-inning, walk-off homer to center. Honus Wagner, Fred Clarke and Chief Wilson had triples for the Pirates. Sam Leever, who allowed the Giants to tie the game in the top of the ninth, got the win. 
  • 1929 - The Pirates mashed the Phillies, 15-9 at the Baker Bowl. Pittsburgh hit five homers and the Phils banged four. There was one home run hit per inning, an oddity that may never be repeated. George Grantham had a pair for the Bucs, along with Pie Traynor, Lloyd Waner and pitcher Fred Fussell adding to the total.  
  • 1936 - The Bucs dropped a 10-inning, 9-6 decision to the Phils at Forbes Field thanks to OF Chuck Klein. The Hoosier Hammer banged four homers, two of which landed on the right field roof, off three different Pirate pitchers and drove in six runs to almost single-handedly beat the Buccos. His three-run homer in the tenth off Bill Swift sealed the deal for Philadelphia. Paul Waner had two hits, scored twice and drove in a run while Gus Suhr added two more knocks good for a pair of RBI to lead the Pirates. Klein, a Hall of Famer, played for Pittsburgh later when he joined the club in 1939. 
Willie Stargell 1971 Topps
  • 1971 - The Pirates bested the Braves, 5-4, at TRS behind Willie Stargell's 30th home run of the season and his 10th off Atlanta pitching; it was a two-run blast in the eighth that turned a deficit into the lead. Pops also doubled and was joined in the two-knock club by Vic Davalillo, who scored twice, and Bob Robertson; Al Oliver drove in a pair of runs. Dave Giusti saved the game with Mudcat Grant getting the win for a contest Steve Blass started. Captain Willie would go on to have a career year in long flies, knocking 48 balls out of the yard. 
  • 2009 - Garrett Jones joined Ryan Howard as the only player to clear the batter’s eye at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia. He mashed the shot off Joe Blanton on the first pitch he delivered to Jones in the opening frame after striking out the first pair of Pirates. It wasn’t enough, though, as the Bucs fell to the Phillies 3-2.

Hi there - my name is James. I want to take some time to introduce myself and give you some background as to who I am, what I do, and how I’m hoping you can help.

My jobs / occupations are a bit complex. I split my time between working a “regular” job Monday - Wednesday, and I am also a real-estate investor, owner of an e-commerce website, and part-owner of a food truck.

Monday - Wednesday I work in finance / technology at the Boston Consulting Group, located at 1 Beacon St. Boston MA.

Also during the week and weekends, I own a company called Gladstone Capital, which focuses on buying under-valued real estate properties, fixing them up, and either renting them or selling them for a profit.

Additionally, I own and run the website www.big4bound.com, which helps students and working professionals land job offers from the Big 4 accounting firms (PwC, Deloitte, KPMG, EY).

Finally, two friends and I own and run the food truck Mustache Pretzels (www.mustachepretzels.com). We are co-located both in Scottsdale, AZ and Philadelphia, PA. I do not participate in the day-to-day activities, but work with the CEO to think through decisions and keep the business moving forward.

Things I will need help with:


        * Various ad-hoc administrative duties (scheduling, e-mails, some research / data entry, vendor selection)

        * Marketing and e-mail outreach

        * Social media for business

        * Accountability - I may ask you to periodically check in with me to see how I am progressing against various goals and hold me accountable for reaching them (personal and business)

        * Various personal tasks and research


Expectations we should have of each other:


        * Be radically truthful and transparent with everything.

        * You will let me know if something is unclear or not specific enough to complete a task before you start working on it. I will try my best to detail exact instructions and expectations of a task with expected timeframe and due dates before work begins. If you are on-pace to exceed that expectation please let me know as soon as possible.

        * I will consistently pay on time and as agreed, and you will provide high quality work in a timely manner.

        * I will provide detailed feedback and suggestions where appropriate, and you will pay extreme attention to detail and be mindful of spelling, grammar, and double check any data entry for typos.

I’m looking forward to reading your proposal and please let me know if you have any questions!

Best,
James

          What happens when a church is no longer a church?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Vatican City, Jul 10, 2018 / 02:49 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- St. Catherine of Siena Church was built by immigrants in a Catholic Boston neighborhood, in the late nineteenth century. For more than a century, it welcomed the poor, the lost, and the searching. Then in 2008, the church was closed.

A decade later the building opened its doors again, welcoming a new generation of seekers. But while the sanctuary is empty, the basement of the building has become a Dollar Tree, and those who enter are searching mostly for a bargain.

Around the world, with demographic shifts and a decline of worshippers in some countries, a growing number of church buildings are being closed. Safeguarding the sanctity of the once-hallowed ground where believers prayed and worshiped is becoming a perplexing problem for Church leaders.

To answer the tough question about what to do with shuttered churches, the Vatican has decided to host a conference from Nov. 29-30, addressing the issue from a multi-disciplinary perspective, in light of a growing interest in protecting the historic and cultural significance many churches still hold, even if they are unused.

The“God No Longer Lives Here?” conference is being organized by the cultural goods department of the Pontifical Council for Culture, the Italian bishops conference, and the Pontifical Gregorian University's Faculty of History and Cultural Heritage of the Church.

At a July 10 press conference announcing the November event, Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, president of the Vatican's culture office, said the problem of what to do with churches or sacred places that are no longer used is a “transversal” problem, with historic, spatial, socio-cultural and even academic and legal dimensions.

When the idea to host a conference about the topic was initially pitched, Ravsi said he was skeptical, thinking the issue would only be of interest to a small pool of experts, however, instead there was an “extraordinary reaction” not only from bishops conferences, but also academics and even UNESCO, who in the past has sent representatives to episcopal conference meetings to hear their thoughts on the closing of ancient religious structures believed to hold special cultural and historic significance.

In comments to the press, Ravasi said that while the issue of what to do with churches that have been closed has always been an issue, the current increase in interest is “one of the mirrors of the decline of religious practice, of secularization,” and of “a lack of priests.”

The prime reasons churches are shut down is due to the small size of the congregation that attends services, to a lack of priests, or when parishes merge for pastoral reasons, Ravisi said.

The conference, then, will help to highlight the crisis in the decline of belief, but it will also ensure that churches and other sacred places are not sold off to buyers who will but them to profane use given the history of the structure.

Part of the goal of the November conference will be to draft guidelines for what to do with churches that are de-consecrated and potentially sold.

The first day of the conference will be dedicated to several talks pitching ideas for solutions, followed by discussion. The second and final day will be dedicated to further discussion and the drafting of the guidelines, which will either be published as a directive from the Vatican's Council for Culture, or they will be adopted and published at a more universal level as a document from the Holy See, though modifications will likely be made if the latter is the case.

Representatives of bishops’ conferences, the Vatican's culture office and university professors will add their voice to the discussion, offering their own contribution for what the guidelines should include.

Conference organizers also announced a photo contest that will take place primarily on Instagram, with the hashtag “#nolongerchurches,” and will encourage photographers to document what happens to de-consecrated churches. The photos selected will also be displayed in an exhibit, and they will be published in the Italian Magazine “Arte cristiana, Casabella e Chiesa: architettura e communicazione.”

In comments to the press, Archbishop Nunzio Galantino, president of the Administration of the Patrimony of the Holy See (APSA) and until now secretary general of the Italian bishops conference, said the topic of what to do with de-consecrated churches is a “salient issue,” and one that is important for the Italian bishops.

Though the question of what to do with an increase in churches being closed is primarily a problem in France, Belgium, Holland, Germany and Switzerland, according to a press release on the conference, Italy, the United States and Canada have also faced similar dilemmas.

And opposition to the sale of sacred spaces has increased even among non-believers, many of whom believe churches, even if unused, add historic, cultural and artistic value to their communities.

“What is the situation today? We have a change of context,” he said, pointing to the problem of decreasing Mass attendance, priest shortages and the closing of rural churches which have gone unused for years.

The issue is a social, cultural and economic problem, he said, explaining that when these churches belong to dioceses and parishes, it is easier to keep them in use and take care of them, but when these churches are no longer associated with a diocese or parish, often and unfortunately “there is a private interest” involved in what happens to it.

Professor Ottavio Bucarelli, who works at the Faculty of History and Cultural Heritage of the Church at the Gregorian University in Rome, was also present at the press conference, and told journalists the “sacred nature” of places of worship must always be respected.

“A church remains a church even when it is no longer a church, even when it has been transformed into something else,” he said, “so at a certain point we have to respect the faith of so many believers who have prayed and worshiped there for centuries.”

          These Apartments Provide a Place to Stay, and Double as Made in America Showrooms      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

When shopping for a new automobile, most American consumers visit a car dealer’s showroom and take their possible purchase for a test drive.

Patrick Flynn, founder and CEO of Northeast Suites, a corporate and vacation rental apartment business based in Boston, has incorporated this auto purchasing routine into his lodging business.

It’s called GoLocal Suites.

Northeast Suites currently has 250 apartments in the Greater Boston area and another 60 units in other American markets, including New York, Denver, Chicago, San Francisco and cities along the East Coast.

In this highly competitive, $14 billion industry, Flynn had an idea where he would convert his rental suites into more than just a place to lay your head at night.

“When you book our suites, you are supporting local economies and helping businesses grow and maintain jobs in America. It’s our vision to deliver a premium living experience and to promote U.S. business owners who produce quality you can’t find anywhere else in the world.” Patrick Flynn, creator of GoLocal Suites

He decided to turn the apartments into showrooms of American-made products. He has converted 20 of his Boston rentals into GoLocal suites, and each apartment is fully-equipped with products manufactured, sourced or assembled in the U.S.

And they are ready for your test drive.

“It’s an exciting way for us to showcase some of the best American-made products being crafted and manufactured today,” Flynn said. “People who stay in our suites can demo all the products for days or weeks instead of just looking at them in a retail store.”

Each GoLocal suite is equipped with more than 60 items sourced from American manufacturers, from major appliances and furniture to can openers and paper towel holders.

Northeast Suites guests are encouraged to download the GoLocal app on their smart phones so that they can read in detail about each American-made product in the rental unit.

Flynn is betting that after testing these products and reading about their American-made history, guests will order an item on the spot and have that product waiting for them when they return home. He has a provisional patent pending on the process for the ad hoc demonstration of items available for purchase within a rental setting.

“We built this program with one goal in mind – to share stories with our guests about the origins of these great products,” Flynn said. “There’s a certain quality that can only be experienced by seeing, feeling and using our Made in the USA products yourself. And sometimes, you just have to have it.

“When you book our suites, you are supporting local economies and helping businesses grow and maintain jobs in America. It’s our vision to deliver a premium living experience and to promote U.S. business owners who produce quality you can’t find anywhere else in the world.”

When the 37-year-old Flynn started Northeast Suites in 2012, he began renting desirable properties and quickly furnished them with less-expensive foreign products.

“I was buying a lot of the cheaper stuff just to get the business going and to be able to quickly provide more and more rental suites,” he said. “But I had an epiphany about a year ago. I wanted to differentiate from all the other guys that were doing what I was doing.

“I wanted to focus on quality American-made products that my rental guests could see and use because I believed that if people took the time to explore American-made quality, they would not only prefer it, they would buy it. This is my chance to educate people who don’t realize that American-made products are not only superior, but they support families and communities.”

Flynn’s premium suites generally cost about $150 per night, which can be half the price of a hotel room in a major city, and offer a comfortable living experience with separate kitchens, laundry rooms, bedrooms, dining and living spaces.

The amenities in the GoLocal suites are sourced from a variety of companies, ranging from small mom-and-pop businesses to multi-million- dollar corporations.

One example is Hutzler Company in Canaan, Conn. It was founded in the U.S. in the late 1930s and was forced to make kitchen products out of plastic due to the shortage of metals at that time because of World War II. It still provides inexpensive, top-quality plastic kitchen items that are superior to Chinese plastics.

Another supplier, Circle Furniture, has been in business for more than 60 years providing fine-quality tables, chairs and sofas to residents of the northeast from its manufacturing facility near Boston.

“I believed that if people took the time to explore American-made quality, they would not only prefer it, they would buy it. This is my chance to educate people who don’t realize that American-made products are not only superior, but they support families and communities.” Patrick Flynn

Flynn is constantly searching for all American-made products to feature in his rental suites. But because it is not always easy to tell how much of a product is made in the United States, he has created three categories of goods.The first category are items that are 100 percent sourced, manufactured and designed in the United States. The second category and third categories may contain some foreign material sourcing, but the design and assembly of these products is all done in America.

“I have a spreadsheet now of everything in the apartments – the linens, the lamps, the artwork, the rugs, even some electronics that’s aren’t made here but are assembled in the U.S., and that’s fine by me because they still are supporting American jobs,” Flynn said. “I found a pizza cutter that is made in Michigan. I found My Pillow which is made in Minneapolis. The pans are made in Milwaukee. Everything started to connect.

“I have 200,000 square-feet of space that has never been looked at as retail footage. I’m selling stories about families that make the products that make up everyday life in my apartments. They are fantastic stories and people love to read these stories. People don’t know that there are no toasters made in America right now.”

Flynn’s concept is much like the one that echoes throughout the baseball-themed film Field of Dreams: “If you build it, they will come.”

“We’ve lost 6 million jobs by sending items and jobs to China that, by the way, we are perfectly capable of making here,” he added. “There is a market demand for these items and domestic competition here will drive the prices down for everybody.

          Release of 5th 'Indiana Jones' movie pushed to 2021      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

NEW YORK — Indiana Jones won't be swinging back into movie theaters until at least 2021.

The Walt Disney Co. on Tuesday announced that the planned fifth installment in the "Indiana Jones" franchise will be released in July 2021 instead of July 2020. The film was originally scheduled for release in the summer of 2019.

Script issues are reportedly behind the delay. Last month, "Solo: A Star Wars Story" co-screenwriter Jonathan Kasdan was brought on to help write the film.

Steven Spielberg is set to direct the latest "Indiana Jones" film, with Harrison Ford also reprising his role. Ford turns 79 years old in July 2021.

Spielberg also has a number of films in front of "Indiana Jones," including a remake of "West Side Story."

Brett Kavanaugh Is The Wrong Choice For The Supreme Court boston Tue, 07/10/2018 - 12:32
Trump Kavanaugh

President Donald Trump announced last night that Brett Kavanaugh is his nominee to be the next U.S. Supreme Court justice. The president has shown that he has little respect for the separation of church and state, so it is no surprise that he has chosen a nominee who rejects this fundamental value as well. In fact, Kavanaugh believes that the “wall of separation” metaphor, invoked by Thomas Jefferson and long used to explain the protections guaranteed to us in the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, “was wrong as a matter of law and history.”

The separation of church and state is the linchpin of religious freedom. We can’t afford to have a Supreme Court that would undermine it. By nominating Kavanaugh to the court, Trump threatens the vision of religious freedom for which Americans United has fought over the last 70 years. That’s why Americans United must oppose him.

Trump chose Kavanaugh, who currently sits on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia, from a list of conservative judges that the Chicago Tribune explained “had been outsourced to, and approved by, the conservative legal organization the Federalist Society and the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank.” And according to The Washington Post, conservatives were looking for a nominee “willing to shield religious objectors from progressive policies or soften the boundaries between church and state.” They want a justice who will allow religion to be used to undermine antidiscrimination laws that protect LGBTQ people and to obstruct women’s access to health care, including birth control.

According to a new report by Americans United, Kavanaugh’s record demonstrates that he would likely undermine religious freedom in a number of ways.

First, Kavanaugh would likely grant religious exemptions to businesses and nonprofit organizations even where the exemption could cause real harm to other people. In his dissenting opinion in Priests for Life v. U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Kavanaugh argued that employers can cite religious beliefs to obstruct their employees’ access to contraception. Kavanaugh’s dissent suggests that he would permit the government to grant religious exemptions in future Supreme Court cases even if they result in the denial of health care or discrimination against women, LGBTQ people, or religious minorities. The court could distort religious freedom from a shield to protect religion into a sword to harm others.

Second, Kavanaugh is critical of five decades of Supreme Court rulings that prohibit public schools from sponsoring prayer. As an attorney, Kavanaugh wrote a friend-of-the-court brief in Santa Fe Independent School District v. Doe, defending a public school that broadcast student-delivered prayers at its football games. Kavanaugh implied that practices “deeply rooted in our history and tradition” should be permitted even if they “favor or promote religion over non-religion.” The Supreme Court disagreed with Kavanaugh. So does Americans United: Religious freedom requires that the government treat all religions equally, including belief systems that are nontheistic.

Third, in friend-of-the-court briefs in both Santa Fe and Good News Club v. Milford Central School, as well as in a 2017 speech, Kavanaugh argued against long-standing precedent prohibiting the use of public funds for religious activities. If the Supreme Court were to adopt Kavanaugh’s views on public funding of religion, that would upend the bedrock constitutional principle that we each get to decide for ourselves whether and how our money goes to support religion.

When you add all this up, Kavanaugh proves to be the wrong pick for the Supreme Court. With this nomination, the court could be in a position to play favorites and approve practices that promote the majority religion while harming schoolchildren, nonreligious people, women, LGBTQ people, taxpayers and others.

It is crucial that the Senate reject Kavanaugh’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court. Religious freedom for all Americans hangs in the balance.

          Emotions high as Kavanaugh begins fight for confirmation      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

WASHINGTON — Conservative Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh plunged into his confirmation battle Tuesday, meeting face-to-face with Senate leaders in what promises to be an intense debate over abortion rights, presidential power and other legal disputes that could reshape the court and roil this fall's elections.

Kavanaugh is a favorite of the GOP legal establishment, and his arrival as President Donald Trump's nominee was greeted on Capitol Hill with praise from Republicans and skepticism from Democrats. There were also pledges of open minds by key senators whose votes will most likely determine the outcome.

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky called Kavanagh "one of the most thoughtful jurists" in the country but warned of an onslaught of "fear mongering" from liberal groups trying to derail the nomination. He said it was clear that many Democrats "didn't care who the nominee was at all. Whoever President Trump put up they were opposed to."

Chuck Schumer, the Senate's Democratic leader, said his party's lawmakers did indeed care who the nominee was — and what his views were on such thorny issues as abortion and Trump himself.

Trump "did exactly what he said he would do on the campaign trail — nominate someone who will overturn women's reproductive rights," the New York senator said.

He also argued that the president chose the man he thought would best protect him from the investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller into Russian interference in the 2016 election. Kavanaugh has written about a need to free the executive branch from intrusive criminal investigations.

"Not only did Mr. Kavanaugh say that a president should not be subpoenaed, he said a president shouldn't be investigated," Schumer said.

The confirmation marathon is expected to drag on for months, and no date has yet been set for hearings. GOP leaders, with a slim majority in the Senate, are anxious to have Kavanaugh in place for the start of the court's session in October — and before the November congressional elections.

But that may be a tall order. His confirmation is complicated by an unusually long record as an appellate judge and as a George W. Bush administration official — and also his role as part of the Kenneth Starr investigation of President Bill Clinton.

Kavanaugh, just 53, could serve on the high court for decades.

As he arrived on Capitol Hill Tuesday, he huddled with McConnell, Vice President Mike Pence and former Sen. Jon Kyl. He also met with Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, which will determine whether to recommend him to the full Senate.

McConnell, who has been influential in shaping Trump's remaking of the judiciary, said, "What we'd like to see is a few open minds about this extraordinary talent."

Grassley said a speedy confirmation wasn't necessarily the goal. The vetting process, he said, is "going to be thorough and going to be done right." Pence told reporters that Kavanaugh was a "good man."

Republicans have little margin of error for the final vote unless a few Democrats can be brought onboard. McConnell has a 51-49 Senate majority, narrowed further by the absence of ailing Sen. John McCain of Arizona. But they hope to gain support from a handful of Democrats who are up for re-election in states where Trump is popular.

So far, Democrats are uniting behind a strategy to turn the confirmation fight into a referendum on conservatives' efforts to undo abortion access, chip away at health care protections under the Affordable Care Act and protect Trump from Mueller.

Senators will be seeking access to Kavanaugh's writings and correspondence, reams of documents that will take weeks to compile and even longer to review, giving opponents ample opportunity to wage a political battle. Protesters have filled the steps of the Supreme Court in recent days.

By fall, the nomination may turn on a handful of senators who will be under enormous pressure ahead of the midterm elections.

The Democrats are trying to pressure two Republicans, Sens. Susan Collins of Maine and Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, to oppose any nominee who threatens the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision. The two have supported access to abortion services, and activists have already begun sending wire coat hangers, as a symbol of an era when abortion was illegal, to Collins' office.

She said that with Kavanaugh's credentials, "it's very difficult for anyone to tell me that he's not qualified for the job." But she added that other issues also would come into play for her, including "judicial temperament" and "judicial philosophy."

Murkowski said, "We've got some due diligence that we've got to do."

At the same time, Republicans are urging a half dozen Democratic senators, largely those who are up for re-election in Trump-won states, to back the president's choice.

Among their targets are Joe Donnelly of Indiana, Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota and Joe Manchin of West Virginia, as well as Doug Jones of Alabama, who is not up for re-election but represents a conservative state in the Deep South.

Kavanaugh in the past has made statements about respecting precedent that could help in winning over senators, particularly Murkowski and Collins.

In his 2006 confirmation hearing to become a federal judge, he said, "I would follow Roe v. Wade faithfully and fully" because it's "binding precedent" that has been "reaffirmed many times."

Yet there's little doubt that Kavanaugh, a solidly conservative, politically connected judge, would shift the nation's highest court further to the right.

A product of the Republican legal establishment in Washington, Kavanaugh is a former law clerk for retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy. Like Trump's first nominee last year, Justice Neil Gorsuch, Kavanaugh would be a young addition who could help remake the court for decades with rulings that could restrict abortion, expand gun rights and roll back key parts of" Obamacare."

Trump unveiled his pick showbiz style, in a suspense-filled prime-time televised announcement Monday evening. He called Kavanaugh "one of the finest and sharpest legal minds of our time."

"Brett Kavanaugh has gotten rave reviews — rave reviews — actually, from both sides," Trump said Tuesday, a stark mischaracterization of Democrats' comments, as he left the White House for a weeklong overseas trip. "And I think it's going to be a beautiful thing to watch over the next month."

The story behind Starland Vocal Band's one, big hit : An oral history of "Afternoon Delight"

Inspired by the Afternoon Delights Happy Hour menu at Clyde's of Georgetown, "Afternoon Delight" was a huge hit in 1976 for the Starland Vocal Band. The band was made up of "a couple of couples": Bill Danoff and Taffy Nivert & Jon Carroll Margot Chapman.
Danoff and Nivert also wrote "Take Me Home, Country Roads." The cover of the single has a roaring lion, just perfect for the least ferocious song by the least ferocious band ever.

The band won the 1976 Grammy for Best New Artist; singer Taffy Nivert later said winning the award was "basically the kiss of death." The other nominees were Boston, The Brothers Johnson, Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band, and Wild Cherry.
Not nominated: Alan Parsons Project, Blondie, Bootsy's Rubber Band, Heart, The Modern Lovers, the Ramones, The Runaways, and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.

The band's success got them a summer TV show that featured comedy bits by a young David Letterman.
They also inspired Homer Simpson to get a tattoo.

The song is perhaps best known today for its appearance in 2004's Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, but have you seen the music video by the cast? "Now if you don't think this song is the greatest song ever, I will fight you."

          NBA trade rumors: Kyle Korver Sixers Raptors Celtics       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The Cleveland Cavaliers are entering into a new era of basketball this upcoming season, after superstar forward LeBron James signed a four-year deal in free agency with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Without James on the team, Cleveland is not in tank mode yet as they still want to compete in a wide-open Eastern Conference.

However, that does not mean they aren't open to trading some of the veterans still remaining on their roster.

One of the veterans that they are looking to move is three-point specialist Kyle Korver. According to Sam Amico of Amico Hoops, Korver is receiving interest from the Philadelphia 76ers, Boston Celtics, and Toronto Raptors.

All three teams could use Korver as each of them has a shot to potentially to win the Eastern Conference this upcoming season. But there is a kicker to trading for him.

The Cavaliers are looking for a first-round pick in exchange for Korver and all three teams are reluctant to give that up Amico also mentions.

It is kind of shocking to see Cleveland ask for a first-round pick because even though Korver can shoot the ball exceedingly well, he is still 37 years old.

Also not to mention, Korver is owed $7.5 million in the 2018/19. It is hard to imagine any of these teams giving up a high pick, just to take on a contract of that magnitude this late into the offseason.

This past season with the Cavaliers, Korver averaged 9.2 points and shot an impressive 43.6 percent from three-point range off the bench.

Out of the three teams, however, the Sixers could definitely use Korver's three-point shooting to pair with J.J. Redick.

At the start of free agency, Philadelphia lost Marco Belinelli to the San Antonio Spurs, who signed the veteran guard to a two-year, $12 million deal. Philadelphia still has not really replaced his production and a potential reunion with Korver could be in order.

Korver began his NBA career with the Sixers as they drafted him in the second round of the 2003 NBA Draft. In five seasons with Philadelphia, he averaged 10.5 points and shot 40.5 percent from three-point range.

If the Cavaliers' price tag comes down for the 37-year-old Korver, do not be surprised to see him playing with the team that originally drafted him this upcoming season.


          Is Red Sox JD Martinez about to win the Triple Crown?       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

For all this talk of baseball being dead the past few days, the Red Sox – and namely JD Martinez – have their chance to own this town starting now. The Celtics’ hot stove is dying down, and the Patriots won’t play a real football game until after Labor Day. We’re now knee deep in summer, and it’s finally the Sox’ time to shine. A few barnburner wins over the Yankees, and a few more Red Sox JD Martinez jacks should do the trick.

Yeah, Martinez hasn’t been fully embraced by the Boston faithful just yet, but if this current hitting magic continues into October then he will most certainly be knighted.

Martinez’s first year with the Sox has been remarkable, as he is legitimately a contender to win the Triple Crown (leading the league in home runs, RBIs and batting average).

Winning the Triple Crown in baseball is sasquatch-rare, as Detroit’s Miguel Cabrera has been the only MLB player to accomplish the feat in the past 50 years. Before Cabrera broke the dry spell in 2012, the Red Sox’ own Carl Yastrzemski was the last player to do so – in 1967. Since RBIs became an official stat in 1920, only 12 baseball players have done the deed.

Red Sox JD Martinez is currently leading the American League in home runs with 27, and in RBIs with 74. It’s looking like he’s going to run away with the RBI title as he is 12 RBIs ahead of No. 2 on the list – Edwin Encarnacion of the Cleveland Indians with 62. Martinez is currently two up on Mike Trout in homers.

 

Red Sox JD Martinez

The one Triple Crown category where Martinez does not lead right now is batting average, as teammate Mookie Betts is the class of the AL there – hitting at a .342 clip. Martinez is currently fourth on that list with a .329 average, but was hitting above .340 as recently as May 22. Betts has never hit better than .318 over the course of a season, so it’s entirely possible that he and several other contenders will drop.

Either way, Red Sox JD Martinez and Betts have a nice little friendly rivalry going.

“You always see [Betts] on the top step in the dugout every time I come in,” Martinez told MassLive earlier this season. “We’re just kind of laughing, talking smack with each other and stuff like that. We have a good relationship.”

Martinez, who was recently called “the best hitter in baseball” by MLB Hall of Famer Frank Thomas, has an evolving mind for hitting that has affected this year’s Red Sox team monumentally. Martinez has helped Betts with his swing, as well as several other players on the Sox - including Rafael Devers who was enduring a hitting slump earlier this year.

“Devers actually had a great weekend of work in the cage,” Red Sox manager Alex Cora said in early June (via CNHI). “A few things JD noticed and threw it out there to him.”

Lo and behold, in the remaining 18 games played by the Red Sox that month – Devers went on a tear and collected 23 hits.

The Triple Crown is all about individual statistical achievement and is very much a selfish award. But if Betts comes out the winner in batting average at Martinez’s expense, don’t expect No. 28 to put up much of a stink.


          If Kyrie bolts Celtics will add different star - Anthony Davis?       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Kevin McHale, who knows Celtics boss Danny Ainge better than just about anyone on this planet, has said in recent years that Ainge’s patience at roster building has been the key to his success.

“Danny is doing it the right way,” McHale told NBC Sports Boston in 2016. “He’s not panicking … which is the opposite of the guy I know. Danny is one of the most impulsive people I know and I’m shocked he doesn’t make a trade every week. He is a disciplined general manager, which is funny because he is a very undisciplined person.”

Despite sheer chaos last off-season, in trading away Isaiah Thomas and Avery Bradley and acquiring Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward – among others – expect Ainge to stand pat with this current group for this coming season at least.

A trade for rental superstar Kawhi Leonard is not happening. It didn’t seem likely two weeks ago, and it certainly doesn’t seem likely now that Golden State landed DeMarcus Cousins in free agency.

In addition to being patient, Ainge is a realist. He knows that the Warriors would have been tough to beat in a potential NBA Finals matchup even if they didn’t add the second or third best free agent on the market.

 

Kyrie Celtics NBA Anthony Davis

The Celtics, who I fully expect to win the East in 2018-19, will take their best shot at Kevin Durant and Co. in the Finals. They might even be able to steal a game or two based on Brad Stevens’ success against the Dubs in recent years.

But we are talking about trying to take down the greatest roster ever assembled, here. We are talking about taking down the 96 Bulls or the 86 Celtics.

The 2018-19 Celtics will have an outstanding roster, but I don’t think it will be one of the best ever assembled. They’re just not on THAT level.

So, expect Ainge to take a Patriots approach to this thing moving forward. Be in title contention every single year. Some years you will break through and win it all. Some years you will not. Just keep taking your shots for the next decade.

Even if this nightmare scenario of Kyrie Irving leaving in free agency next summer happens, the Celtics will be set up perfectly to simply insert a different superstar-level player immediately either via free agency or trade. You can bet there will be plenty of superstar-level talents banging at the door to join the best team in the Eastern Conference – a team that features rising stars Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. Perhaps even the biggest fish of all – Anthony Davis – becomes available in the next few years.

Now is the time for Patient Danny. And it’s the Danny I think we’re going to get.


          Northeastern students, staff to protest school contract with ICE       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Northeastern University students, staff and faculty will gather on the Boston campus on Wednesday to protest the school’s $7.7 million research contract with the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

More than 2,000 members of the Northeastern community have signed an open letter demanding the university drop the contract and distance itself from the federal immigration agency in light of the government’s recent actions of separating migrant families at the southern U.S. border and keeping children in cages.

Now, hundreds will gather at Northeastern’s Krentzman Quadrangle at noon on Wednesday to voice their opposition.

“People have tried to defend [the contract] as something that’s relatively innocuous,” said Dr. Mary Annas, a faculty member in the school’s English department. “Yet I personally believe that  any collusion with ICE, taking money from ICE, taking money from any organization  that defends ICE is collaboration with them, until they stop separating families.”

Annas plans to attend the Wednesday protest. She is not one of the organizers, she said, but learned about the demonstration and open letter through a mass email that circulated through the school community.

The contract with ICE awards Northeastern more than $7,750,000 to fund data mapping research on "dual-use technologies,” which could be used to make weapons, that are exported from the United States. The research is unrelated to immigration, the school says. The contract began in Sept. 2016 and is set to go until August 2021.

"The contract is with ICE because they are the agency that is responsible for collecting data on exported goods," Northeastern Professor Glenn Pierce, who is conducting the research, told State House News Service. "We're discussing something that has no overlap with [the protestors'] concerns."

northeastern university ice

Still, members of the Northeastern community say any connection with ICE effectively doubles as support for the agency’s recent actions.

"They are taking money from ICE indirectly or directly, and I know that there are people who will be offended [by the protest] because they will say that this kind of research should be supported by every university, that every point of view should be voiced,” Annas said. “But at the same time, I see a direct connection to what’s going on at the border, and I would love to see the university give the money back.”

On a Facebook event for the protest, students are encouraging current students and alumni who cannot attend to take a picture of themselves holding a sign calling on Northeastern to “Drop the contract with ICE” and to share it on Twitter with the hashtag #CanceltheContracts.

“Every university has a responsibility to determine what constitutes ethical research. At this moment in history, when families are being torn apart and children are being locked in cages, collaborating with an agency like ICE is clearly unethical,” said Lester Smiley, a Northeastern University School of Law student helping organize the protest, in a statement. “The administration is trying to spin this to the press and sweep it under the rug, but that’s not going to work. We won’t stop until the university makes clear that this contract will be canceled, and no further contracts with ICE will be pursued in the future.”

Northeastern ICE protest: What to know if you go

When?  The #CancelTheContracts protest will happen on Wednesday July 11 from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.

Where? Rallygoers will assemble on Krentzman Quad.

How: Protesters are encouraged to simply show up, and bring a sign. Organizers said some signs will be made available.

 


          Superb defense takes France close to another World Cup title      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

ST. PETERSBURG, Russia — France's defense made the difference — on both sides of the field.

Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris kept out the shots and defender Samuel Umtiti scored the winning goal from a corner.

It was France's backline, not its slick attackers, that carried the team to the World Cup final with a 1-0 victory over Belgium on Tuesday.

"This is why football is magical, it gives everyone emotions. It's tough not to give into euphoria, but it's a fantastic moment," Lloris said. "We feared them on set pieces, but in the end it was us scoring from one."

France coach Didier Deschamps fell into Umtiti's arms after the final whistle. His superbly drilled defense, led by Raphael Varane, neutralized Belgium's much-hyped attack to record a fourth shutout in six games so far.

"They have so many athletic players, to have resisted in defense is very good. We had to defend very deep sometimes," Deschamps said. "We came up against a very good Belgium side which controlled the game more than us. But we also hurt them."

Umtiti danced in front of the France fans, while center back partner Varane walked over to them and pumped his clenched fist. Varane was injured when France lost the European Championship final two years ago, and he looks determined to make up for it.

The spotlight has been on 19-year-old sensation Kylian Mbappe in Russia, whose electric pace and skill lit up the tournament. But for the second consecutive knockout game, a defender managed to score when Mbappe couldn't.

Against Uruguay last Friday, it was Varane's header that gave France the lead in a 2-0 win. A few days later, it was Umtiti rising to head home a corner from the right in the 51st minute.

"Enormously proud," Umtiti said. "We worked really hard together, and it's me that scored but we all delivered a big game."

Umtiti showed superb timing to leap above Belgium midfielder Maroune Fellaini — the tallest non-goalkeeper on either side — and power a header past Thibaut Courtois.

"When you're not particularly tall you need determination and the will to get in front of the opponent," Umtiti said. "The set piece was really well taken as well, and that helped me beat someone as good as Fellaini in the air."

Forward Antoine Griezmann set up Umtiti's and Varane's headed goals up with his cushioned delivery from set pieces. But like Mbappe, he took a back seat against the Belgians as Lloris and his defense starred at St. Petersburg Stadium.

Varane made decisive headers to cut out dangerous crosses and corners, and read to perfection almost every run from Romelu Lukaku and the fleet-footed Eden Hazard. He also compensated for the times when right back Benjamin Pavard was caught out of position, particularly by Hazard, when Belgium dominated the opening 20 minutes.

When France's defense was breached, the agile Lloris was on hand to make decisive saves — just like against Uruguay. He made a superb, leaping stop to his right to palm away a sudden strike from Toby Alderweireld in the 22nd minute that would have gone inside the left post.

Midway through the second half, Lloris was there again, springing off his line to punch away a dangerous right-wing cross from Belgium substitute Dries Mertens.

With 10 minutes left and Belgium pressing, Lloris flew off his line to his left to push away a powerful shot from midfielder Axel Witsel.

France won its only World Cup 20 years ago, thanks to a commanding goalkeeper — Fabien Barthez — protected by a rock-solid defense which also chipped in with goals.

In 1998, a defender — Laurent Blanc — scored in the first knockout game to defeat Paraguay in extra time; and Barthez saved France in a tense penalty shootout against Italy in the quarterfinals. Then, right back Lilian Thuram scored the only two goals of his career to help France beat Croatia in the semifinals.

France kept five shutouts in seven games back then. With Croatia or England awaiting in Sunday's final, the formula is one game away from working again.

          Lyric Stage Names Courtney O'Connor Associate Artistic Director      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The Lyric Stage Company of Boston's Producing Artistic Director, Spiro Veloudos, Managing Director, Matt Chapuran, and its Board of Directors today announced that they have named Courtney O'Connor as the company's new Associate Artistic Director.

With 75 applications for this position, the choice was anything but easy. But Courtney's background in theatre production, administration, and education made her an exciting choice."

Matt Chapuran added: "I fondly recall Courtney's production of Sin at the Coyote Theatre, produced back when we were all much younger. She's lost none of her vibrancy and wit, and shares our commitment to local talent."

And Courtney O'Connor wrote: "The Lyric Stage has been an artistic home to me as a director here in Boston - a place that has challenged and supported me like no other. And as I have grown during that time, the Lyric Stage has also grown and expanded greatly. With their new programs and partnerships, the continuing deep commitment to supporting local artists, and the dedicated and vibrant staff, the Lyric Stage is an invigorating and thriving company. I am thrilled to be joining in this new role, and look forward to discovering what we can create as we grow together."

Directed by Lisa Rothe, with Joel de la Fuente starring as Hirabayashi, Hold These Truths shares the story of a young man who passionately defends his Constitutional rights against an unexpected adversary: his own country. It will be presented July 11-August 5, 2018 (press opening: July 14) at the Lucie Stern Theatre, 1305 Middlefield Rd., Palo Alto. For tickets ($40-$100) and more information the public may visit TheatreWorks.org or call (650) 463-1960.

Hold These Truths made its world premiere in 2007 at East West Players in Los Angeles. In 2012, the solo play made its Off Broadway premiere at Epic Theatre Company starring Joel de la Fuente, and received a 2013 Drama Desk nomination for Outstanding Solo Performance. Since its world premiere, it has gone on to play throughout the nation including theatres in Boston, Honolulu, Washington, D.C., Portland, and many others. Critics have lauded the period piece as "a top-notch production" (The New York Times), "particularly impactful" (TheaterMania), and a show which "gives hope that the arc of the moral universe does indeed eventually bend toward justice" (Los Angeles Times).

Joel de la Fuente makes his TheatreWorks debut as Gordon Hirabayashi. He has been seen in movies and on many television shows and such asThe Man in the High Castle, Madam Secretary, Hemlock Grove, Nurse Jackie, Hawaii 5-O, ER, Red Sparrow, The Adjustment Bureau, and more. De la Fuente has also performed throughout the United States at theatres including New York Shakespeare Festival, La Jolla Playhouse, The Public Theater, and others.

My little brother is in town visiting, and he is the sound designer for the Boston Ballet, and on Wednesday night (I think) we got obliterated on gin and had something of a musical duel; each taking turns on the stereo, me playing some of the weirder stuff I listen to and him playing bits of classical music.  Honestly, it was fucking ace.  As a DJ set it would have absolutely delighted me anyway, even if everyone else ended up fucking off, but nevertheless, that evening was what music fandom is really about for me.

So this podcast isn't really a recreation by any means (we are far, far too sober and nothing like argumentative enough for starters) but I thought it would be nice to do a podcast along those lines.  Personally, it's maybe not even as classical as I might personally have liked it to be, but never mind, I really like it.

And, as usual, there is a correction to be made.  We describe the them tune to Star Trek Deep Space Nine as Theme for the Common Man, and apparently it isn't that at all.  What it is is heavily heavily borrowed from Aaron Copland's Fanfare for the Common Man.  So the bit of classical music Ben describes hearing before we play that song must actually have been Fanfare for the Common Man, which only reminded him of the Deep Space Nine theme without actually being it.  Whoops.  Next time research before talking!

I’m in America at the moment at my brother’s wedding, but I very kindly recorded this before I went away.  I’ve thrown in some stuff about weddings and some summery happy tunes too.

Also, he’s getting married on Cape Cod, and I worked there as a waiter for two Summers when I was a student - with my everso English accent the tips were quite splendid - so I’ve thrown on a few songs that remind me of my Summers on Cape Cod, although not all are obviously related.  All in all it’s a cheerful, happy mix with a nice atmosphere to it, so you should like this one.

By the time you hear it though I could very easily have sworn myself into exile and ruined my relationship with my new in-laws forever.  Wish me luck, Toadlings, wish me luck.

The Bel Airs
Fronted by brothers Dick and Dave Pruitt on bass and electric guitars, with Michael Cherry on drums, the Bel Airs play a danceable mix with an authentic but eclectic bluesy-country-soul-and-rock-n-roll sound influenced by the likes of Wilson Picket, Slim Harpo, Howlin' Wolf and Johnny Cash.

Living on the road and playing clubs from "Austin to Boston", the Bel Airs are carrying on the tradition of American Rhythm and Blues. The band is fronted by brothers Dick and Dave Pruitt on bass and electric guitars. Growing up on country soul and rock-n-roll, the Pruitt brothers have developed a harmony vocal style all their own. They have been performing together for more than 30 years, wowing audiences nightly with their unique brand of music- leading one reviewer to refer to them as the "Everly Brothers of Blues."

With four acclaimed albums and performances at festivals and night clubs across the USA as well as England, France, Belgium and Spain, the band continues to travel extensively.​ ​ The Bel Airs' musical approach and superbly crafted showmanship make for a more than memorable concert whenever they appear.

Rounding out the roster and making his debut shortly after the console launch via a free update is the heavily armed Draco, who uses a single power while equipping up to eight weapons.

          Belgium's golden generation falls short again at World Cup      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

ST. PETERSBURG, Russia — Belgium's golden generation has come up short at a major tournament. Again.

With Kevin De Bruyne and Eden Hazard in fantastic form creating chances for themselves and Romelu Lukaku up front, Vincent Kompany fit again at the heart of the defense and Thibaut Courtois standing tall in goal, these Red Devils racked up more goals than any other team in the World Cup. Through five matches, it looked as if they could finally deliver on their promise.

But with their King Philippe watching from the stands, there was to be no coronation.

After reaching the World Cup semifinals for the first time since 1986, Roberto Martinez's talent-packed team lost 1-0 to France on Tuesday at St. Petersburg Stadium on a Samuel Umtiti second-half header from a corner kick.

"Damn set piece, that's all I can say," Kompany said.

A Belgium team featuring many of the same stars lost 1-0 to Argentina in the World Cup quarterfinal four years ago and then was shocked 3-1 by Wales in the European Championship quarterfinals two years ago.

Even through the first 30 minutes in St. Petersburg, this side had looked different, carving out chances and containing France's counterattacks.

"We had more chances today, we had more control of the match," Kompany said. "We weren't in control two years ago against Argentina."

But the potent Belgian attack gradually faded as France's rock-solid defense handed Belgium its first shutout of the tournament.

Instead of playing Sunday in Moscow for its first World Cup, Belgium will be back in St. Petersburg on Saturday, playing in the third-place match and wondering if its championship window has closed.

Belgium's beaten players did not want to talk about the end of an era — not with stars like 27-year-old De Bruyne, 26-year-old Courtois and 25-year-old Lukaku in the team and more coming through the youth ranks.

"Generations. Who talks about generations?" De Bruyne said. "We are a small country. We can be very happy and lucky that we can have the team what we have. We don't have the resources, the infrastructure, the money that other countries have. What we have is a really good team that performed really well."

The last time a Belgium team got this far at the World Cup, it lost 2-0 to Argentina at the 1986 tournament in Mexico. A pair of Diego Maradona second-half goals sank Belgium that day.

Long considered the a lesser footballing nation than its neighbor the Netherlands — whose orange-clad teams have reached three World Cup finals and lost them all — this Belgium team has at least dispelled the Dutch shadow.

Kompany, an injury-prone 32-year-old who may well have played his last World Cup in Russia, believes that, despite the loss, the class of 2018 has done his nation a favor.

"Generations come and go," Kompany said. "For Belgian football I think eventually there will still be an opportunity to do well. It allows the country to be more ambitious and believe in its own talent. So maybe for the future we've still done something good for Belgian football."

Martinez didn't talk about the end of an era, but he was already looking to the future after the match.

"As it happens in any big tournament, you need to look at the younger generations and try to become stronger," he said. "From tournament to tournament, that's the drive and the ambition."

Belgium was left Tuesday still clinging to the elusive ambition of reaching a first World Cup final.

          Why Are Young Billionaires So Boring?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   


Early in Warren Buffett’s life, his father failed to get hired at the family grocery store during the Great Depression. Without a job, and without any money after a run on the banks, the family of four ran up a tab of grocery bills at the store to put food on the table, and even then, his mother sometimes skipped meals. Leila Buffett, beset by stress and with a mind likely impacted by linotype fumes she inhaled as a child, would often berate her two small children.
From this nadir, the family gradually achieved more secure financial footing. His father started a stock brokerage and eventually went on to become a four-term congressman. Young Warren started showing an aptitude for numbers. He became obsessed with timing everything, calculating odds, even tallying the frequency of the letters that appeared in the bible most frequently, according to The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life. By age 15 he managed to earn thousands working his local paper route. The rest, as they say, is history.

On Friday, the legendary investor, 87, was surpassed in wealth by 34-year-old Mark Zuckerberg. The gap was closed in part by Facebook’s surging stock—up 15 percent this year so far—and in part by Buffett’s large charitable cash outflows. Today, the three richest people in the world, Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates and Zuckerberg, have all made their fortunes in tech.
Compared to Buffett and many of his contemporaries, Zuckerberg’s childhood was more banal. He grew up in Dobbs Ferry, a small middle-class suburb of New York, the son of a dentist and a psychiatrist. He started using his father’s computer at a young age, and showed an early facility for programming, before graduating from an elite prep school.

Zuckerberg’s story is typical of the slate of newly minted technology billionaires in the ranks of the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. And there are a lot of them. With 64 technology businessmen and women on Bloomberg's list, which tracks the world’s 500 richest people, the industry has produced more billionaires than any other (unless you count inheritances—there’s a lot of inherited wealth on the list, too). This year alone, tech has created 11 new billionaires.
But there's something missing from the foundational stories of this new group of self-made men (yes, they’re mostly men). Where earlier generations' formative experiences revolved around paper routes and pathos, today's prototypical founding story involves an upper-middle-class childhood, early access to a computer, and an elite education—even if that education was abandoned. Before he famously walked out of Harvard University, Zuckerberg created an instant messaging system for his dad's dental practice at age 12. At 15, Twitter's Jack Dorsey was dazzling his bosses during a programming internship. And Uber's Travis Kalanick was writing code by middle school.
Jack Dorsey

The self-made man has always played a profound role in the American imagination. Horatio Alger wrote stories of plucky, lower-class strivers who made their way in the world by dint of honesty and hard work. Hollywood has fetishized the underdog since movies were invented. And for years, the business world offered real stories too.
But the modern rise of the Harvard dropout (or New York University in Dorsey's case, or UCLA in Kalanick's case), complicates that story. Today's founders are long on brilliance, but short on hardship. It's difficult, after all, to become a computer prodigy without a computer. That dollop of privilege speaks to a larger trend in the American economy: For millions of low-income people, it's getting harder to build something from nothing. In order to drop out of Harvard, first you have to get in.
Buffett, with a father who was a politician and investor, often jokes that despite the family’s temporary bout with poverty, he won the “ovarian lottery.” He would eventually attend Columbia Business School and study with renowned investor Benjamin Graham. But for many leaders of Buffett’s generation, dorm rooms weren’t a part of the origin story. Consider Bruton Smith, who until he stepped down as CEO of Speedway Motorsports Inc. in 2015 at age 88, was one of the oldest serving public company leaders. Smith grew up on a farm, never went to college, and once took a shotgun to a construction site to settle a labor dispute. Oil baron Harold Hamm, born in 1945 as the youngest of 13 children of Oklahoma sharecroppers, drilled his first oil well at age 25 (it eventually paid for college).  And then there's recently deceased casino and movie magnate Kirk Kerkorian, born in 1917, who faked documentation of a high school graduation in order to join the military as a pilot.
In some ways, it's great to live in the age of the nerd. And it’s tough to mourn the decline of Wall Street-style corporate machismo. But a poor kid growing up today may find it much harder to emulate the life path of someone like Zuckerberg, who coded an instant messaging system before hitting puberty, than that of even Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein, who grew up in Brooklyn housing projects and at one point served concessions at Yankee Stadium to earn extra money.
Statistically as well as anecdotally, true American rags-to-riches stories are getting rarer. Class mobility, as defined by the percentage of children who earn more than their parents, has been in a state of mostly uninterrupted decline since the 1940s. Economist Raj Chetty found that only about half of the children born in 1980 have surpassed their parents’ income. In 1940, that number exceeded 90 percent.
Of course, most successful entrepreneurs have earnings that vastly outstrip their parents’. In fact, they outstrip the earnings of nearly every human in history. In by-now-familiar statistics, the rate of income growth at the top levels of earning in the U.S. have far outpaced growth at the bottom segments (in the 1980s, it was the other way around, according to research by Thomas Piketty, Emmanuel Saez and Gabriel Zucman). Last year Oxfam International found that more than 80 percent of earnings went to the top 1 percent of the world population.  
That so many of today’s new billionaires mostly come comfortable backgrounds is emblematic of a broader concentrating of wealth in the U.S. According to recent Federal Reserve data, the median family's net worth had not recovered its pre-recession value by 2016, while the top 10 percent gained double digits since 2007.
Of course, you can still find evidence of rough patches and plenty of hard work in the early childhoods of today's wealthiest tech luminaries. Elon Musk, 47, an immigrant from South Africa, came from wealth, but was bullied as a kid before moving to Canada alone at just 17, where he enrolled in Queens University and transferred to the University of Pennsylvania, before eventually dropping out of a Stanford University PhD program. Jeff Bezos, 54, was born when his mother was 16 years old, and was adopted by her second husband, a Cuban immigrant and an engineer. And Sergey Brin, 44, came to the U.S. as a six-year-old, when his parents traded the anti-Semitic backdrop of Moscow academia for a new life in the U.S.
But even these founders, who all had at least one parent with a science background, stand in contrast to an earlier era. According to the Bloomberg Billionaire Index, the second-oldest self-made American billionaire is Amway’s Richard DeVos, born in 1926. DeVos was a boy when his father lost his job as an electrician during the Great Depression, and the family moved in with his grandparents. He remembered stuffing a baseball with fabric and tying it together because he and his friends couldn’t afford a new one. As a sophomore, he was labeled “not college material,” sent to trade school, and had to work to pay his way back into the local Christian high school.
Ted Lerner, who at 92 is the oldest self-made man on the Bloomberg index, is the son of a clothing salesman from Palestine. He grew up in an immigrant community in Washington, and recalled to a local paper, “I remember chickens being plucked and koshered on Georgia Avenue.” Casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, 84, now a controversial figure in U.S. politics, grew up in a working-class Boston neighborhood as the son of a taxi driver. Eli Broad, born in 1933, is the son of a Lithuanian house painter, went on to become the only man to found two Fortune 500 companies in two different industries: housing and financial services.
It is, of course, not the fault of tech's young luminaries that the economy has shifted toward technological skills. Even as it's boosted Americans’ standard of living, the rapid pace of innovation has made education an increasingly important factor in determining income, a trend that in turn has exacerbated rising inequality. Overall educational attainment in the U.S. is rising, but nearly 70 percent of the adult population has still never graduated from college. That's even though higher education has increasingly become a prerequisite for white-collar work. The college wage premium, or what bachelor’s degree holders make compared to high school graduates, has skyrocketed since the 1970s and now hovers at about 50 percent, near-record levels.
The so-called "digital divide" between rich and poor households, has reinforced the gap between haves and have-nots. Despite the pervasiveness of personal computing, poor kids today are less likely to have access to the programs that could help them develop early coding genius. According to Pew Research Center data, 87 percent of households with an income of $75,000 or higher use broadband at home. But for households making less than $30,000, it's only 45 percent.
That inequality of opportunity is rising is hardly a matter of debate. What's still unclear, though, is the eventual result. Besides barring the path for talented people of limited means, a widening chasm between the rich and everyone else also presents political problems. Witness mounting anger at tech companies in cities like San Francisco and Seattle. The Seattle city council voted to levy a punitive per-worker tax on Amazon and other large employers in response to the area's growing homelessness problem. Seattle officials relented, but tensions still simmer beneath the surface nationwide, threatening to boil over in unpredictable ways.
And unlike yesterday's titans, the newest of generation billionaires don’t have histories likely to assuage popular resentment. The three youngest self-made billionaires on Bloomberg's index are all Facebook cofounders. Their story is legend: After Zuckerberg's auspicious beginnings in Dobbs Ferry, he created a hotness-ranking tool called Facemash before he and his friends dropped out to found Thefacebook.com. Just above them on the list in age is Sean Parker, now 38, who took up programming early and interned for future Zynga CEO Mark Pincus while he was still in high school.
This is not a lamentation of the comfortable childhoods of corporate leaders. In some ways, the American myth of the up-from-nothing elite was always mostly imagined. The likelihood that a child today will rise from the lowest to the highest quintile of earnings, is less than 10 percent. That’s low compared to other rich countries, according to Chetty’s data, but it’s not much changed since the 1970s.
The American Dream has always been a story we told ourselves, bolstered by the hardscrabble tales of men who rose from nothing to become magnates. Today, Zuckerberg is a moral leader—a family man, and a donor to noble causes. But those looking to follow in his footsteps will cast an eye back to his early days: To the comfortable Westchester upbringing, the fencing club captainship at an elite prep school, the insouciant Harvard days, and to Facemash. American youth may aspire to climb the same ladder. They’re likely to find it’s missing some rungs.

NEW BOSTON, Texas (AP) — Authorities in East Texas are investigating the death of a 10-year-old girl who was apparently electrocuted as she was reaching behind a clothes dryer to retrieve her kittens.

KSLA-TV in Shreveport, Louisiana, reports that the parents of Greenlee Marie said she was trying to rescue the pets Saturday at the family's home in New Boston, Texas. Authorities were back at the home on Monday investigating.

New Boston police Chief Garry McCrary told the television station that it's "too early right now to go ahead and place blame and responsibility until the investigation is over." He didn't elaborate.

The girl's body was sent to Dallas for an autopsy.

New Boston is about 20 miles from the Arkansas border and about 150 miles northeast of Dallas.

          Worker Cooperatives Are Finding Investors Who Share Their Values      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

You may know Equal Exchange by the food company’s signature bright red logo on its coffee, tea, or chocolate bars. You may know they sell only certified fair-trade products, ensuring just compensation paid to farmers and their workers in countries all over the world. You may even know the company currently earns around $70 million a year in revenues, and has around 150 employees. But did you also know the company is a worker cooperative?

In the 1980s, Equal Exchange’s three co-founders were working in the food industry, but not enthusiastic about the conventional business models they found across the sector, which were based primarily on a “race to the bottom,” cutting costs wherever possible to increase shareholder profits. That usually meant companies paid the bare minimum to workers along the global supply chain — farmers, truck and forklift drivers, packaging machine operators, coffee roaster operators, warehouse staff and others. Equal Exchange’s co-founders came together to form the company in the late 1980s, setting out to prove a point: that you could be a successful, even a profitable company and not treat your workers, suppliers, and other stakeholders like cogs in the money-making machine. You could pay everyone fairly, even give workers ownership and control of the company, and have cash left over to repay investors.

Being a worker cooperative means every worker has an equal say and an equal ownership share in the company. It doesn’t mean every worker has to vote on every day-to-day decision within the business. But on major decisions, this structure helps to guard against making drastic changes such as sacrificing wages and benefits for the sake of profits or shutting down their existing roasting facility and moving it hundreds or thousands of miles away.

For those and other reasons, a growing number of cities from New York City to Cleveland to Rochester to Madison have been exploring worker cooperatives; the goal is to create jobs with better pay and benefits and to support companies that won’t threaten to shift those jobs to other countries or even other parts of the United States.

But access to capital remains a major barrier for most worker cooperatives to achieve their potential to grow and scale to the point where they can influence others in their cities and sectors to change practices and possibly incorporate as or convert to worker cooperative ownership structures. Equal Exchange is one of the few worker cooperatives that has raised a significant amount of capital from investors. They have moved beyond setting an example for how to court investors as a worker cooperative; they’ve directly supported other worker cooperatives to learn how to raise capital and have even connected others to their established network of around 600 investors.

At Equal Exchange’s headquarters, just outside the city of Brockton, Massachusetts — home to office supplier W.B. Mason, and boxers Rocky Marciano and “Marvelous” Marvin Hagler — you’ll find forklift drivers, packing machines and operators, coffee roasters, coffee tasters, and office staff. You may also find Daniel Fireside, who, as capital coordinator, manages the company’s investor relationships.

“I have to explain what my job is a lot, even inside the company,” says Fireside. “When I was hired, I was told different people who’ve had the job [before me] have had different titles, like director of investor relations. I decided to keep capital coordinator, because I think it’s more reflective of what the job is, and [the title is] unusual enough that it often starts a conversation.”

Since the company’s founding, Equal Exchange has raised more than $16 million in capital from outside investors, about half of that since hiring Fireside in 2010. Coming from the cooperative world, he had to learn the investment world. In some ways, managing and cultivating investor relationships for a worker cooperative is the same as doing so for a conventional business — for example, frequent travel to places where current or likely investors are likely to gather; it’s why Fireside spends so much of his working life out of the office.

While the company isn’t publicly traded on the stock market, it does utilize a legal framework under U.S. securities laws (known as the 506 exemption of Regulation D of the Securities and Exchange Act) to sell ownership shares to investors during occasional periods known as private offerings. Unlike standard ownership shares, however, these shares don’t come with any rights to vote or otherwise exert control over the business.

When Equal Exchange decides to have an offering, it’s Fireside’s role to make sure investors are in place, ready to sign checks as soon as possible. You can’t just call someone who expressed interest five years ago and hope they’re in position to make an investment.

“A lot of it is networking,” says Fireside. “I’m selling our stock even when we don’t have an offering. My job is to make sure the capital is available. Whatever plans management has, I don’t want access to affordable capital to be an obstacle.”

The last time Equal Exchange made an offering to investors was a one-year period from 2014 into 2015, and the company raised $4.1 million. It was Equal Exchange’s largest offering ever, and to date remains the largest private offering by any worker cooperative in the United States.

Fireside doesn’t do this all by himself. It’s not only logistically infeasible — investors hail from 36 states plus the District of Columbia — but the legal costs associated with a company marketing directly to most investors would be exorbitant. Instead, Fireside works with partners to raise the capital, partners such Andy Loving, a Louisville, Kentucky-based financial advisor with Natural Investments LLC. When Fireside has an offering for investors, he calls up Loving and a few other financial advisors at Natural Investments and other firms, and gives them each a target dollar amount to raise. Natural Investments doesn’t charge Equal Exchange a penny for the service it provides.

“I’ve been doing this for 25 years now,” says Loving. “I’m an old social activist mostly among more progressive church folk. I tell people when I was a little bit younger I tried to create social change by organizing people, and I decided I’d give a try to organize money.”

Loving’s clients are the people with money to invest. They come from a variety of backgrounds, he says, including folks who have worked in government for many years. Some have inherited money, some are fellow social activists, environmentalists, lawyers, even social workers. His clients aren’t the super-wealthy; most hover between $1 million and $2 million in net worth, and they come from 25 states and counting.

A net-worth of $1 million is an important threshold under the Securities and Exchange Act. Unlike with the stock market, in a private offering, the law says companies can only sell shares to up to 35 investors who have a net-worth less than $1 million. But companies can sell shares to an unlimited number of investors with a net-worth of at least $1 million. It’s a measure meant to protect less wealthy investors from being scammed, although some — including Fireside — believe it’s worth exploring meaningful ways to expand that unlimited pool to include less wealthy investors.

What ties all of them together, what brings clients to Loving and financial advisory firms such as Natural Investments in the first place, is the desire to invest in ways that link some type of social returns — creating living wage jobs, advancing clean energy and investing in historically under-invested communities — to financial returns.

Twenty-five years ago, when Loving first got into financial advising, he worked with a few investors who only cared about maximizing financial return. (“Because I wanted to do things like eat,” he says.) Nowadays, he has more than enough clients to keep him busy (and fed) by investing only in opportunities such as Equal Exchange.

Instead of charging companies like Equal Exchange for raising capital, Loving’s clients pay Natural Investments an annual fee equal to one percent of the assets that fall under the firm’s management. The firm currently has around $500 million in assets under management. Of that, around $90 million comes from Loving’s clients. Loving says around 70 of those clients have invested in Equal Exchange. Other Natural Investments advisors also have clients invested in Equal Exchange.

“As a financial advisor, my fiduciary responsibility is first to my clients,” Loving explains. That means meeting his clients’ financial expectations, which includes not losing any money; but as with most investors, Loving’s clients want to at least beat inflation and grow the value of their assets over time, for the sake of retirement or passing along wealth to the next generation. Beyond that, Loving’s clients aren’t as interested in how fast their assets grow as they are in the social returns of those investments, a philosophy that makes sense from Equal Exchange’s perspective.

“One of the things Equal Exchange always wanted, and why they wanted to work with us, was they wanted values-aligned investors,” says Loving. “They were looking for folks who understood fair trade, who understood worker ownership.

To be as sure as he can about values-alignment with investors, Fireside has a conversation with each potential investor before taking their money. Besides alignment with fair-trade and worker cooperative ideals and philosophies, Fireside checks the investor’s long-term perspective. Equal Exchange’s outside investors must hold on to their shares for a minimum of five years, and can only sell shares back to the company.

“I tell people I can’t guarantee you’ll make a financial return, I can’t guarantee you won’t lose it, but I can guarantee you’ll feel good either way, because we’re doing the right thing,” says Fireside. “That message, after the financial crisis, suddenly meant a lot more to a growing number of people.”

Fireside may sound modest, but the reality is that Equal Exchange has paid an annual dividend to investors for 28 straight years and counting, even during the Great Recession. And during Loving’s tenure selling Equal Exchange shares to outside investors, he’s seen only a tiny handful cash out.

“I’ve spoken to some of our long-time investors who’ve said they thought Equal Exchange was their crazy pseudo-charity, but [then] the financial crisis hit and their 401k’s fell by half in value, while [Equal Exchange] kept paying positive returns, because the business was moving along and it was all based on reality,” Fireside says.

It helps that Equal Exchange shares, while not “tradeable” in the stock market sense, never go down in value. The share values don’t go up, either — each investors’ share price stays fixed at whatever their investment was during the offering. In lieu of going up in value, the company promises to pay an annual dividend between 1 and 8 percent of the value of each investor’s investment every year. So far, over the past 28 years, annual dividend payments have been between 3 and 8 percent, and the company sets 5 percent as an annual target dividend payment for each year.

Those returns don’t attract investors in droves. But in his time as capital coordinator, Fireside says he has had to turn away investors from multiple offerings, or in some cases he has capped the amount a single investor could purchase to make room for other, usually smaller investors. More recently, Fireside has referred other worker cooperatives to Loving and other financial advisors in order to raise capital, co-ops such as Boston’s CERO or Denver’s Namasté Solar (where Fireside is a board member). Namasté Solar, which provides residential and commercial solar installations in Colorado, California, and New York, raised $3.1 million in its second private offering, which concluded at the end of 2016.

“We think the way we do business is great, and we think more people should be doing it,” says Fireside. “We don’t want to be the cool outlier.”

One key limitation: while Fireside and Loving have yet to reach the limits of how much capital investors are willing to move to outfits like Equal Exchange or CERO or Namasté Solar, Loving says he doesn’t feel these investors are the best for startups. It’s too risky for investors who, although they have some flexibility with their wealth, aren’t in a position to invest at the earliest stage of a business, worker cooperative or not. Even in conventional investing, Loving points out, the vast majority of startups fail.

“We really feel like our folks can’t lose all their money in a deal,” Loving says. “Cities and governmental bodies are some of the people that need to help get [more worker cooperatives] off the ground and [give them] technical assistance to get them to work [so they can] establish a track record.”


          AFC exec believes Gronkowski can still be had in trade      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
At least one AFC executive believes star New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski can still be had in a trade. At least until he lands the contract restructure that’s been reported as in the works for a couple months now.“Where’s the restructure of his contract?” the AFC personnel executive asked, per Boston Sports Journal’s Greg A. Bedard. “Until that’s done, I think he’s still available. I wouldn’t be surprised if Belichick is going to test Gronk’s buy-in with the contract.”This may seem far-fetched, but it certainly wouldn’t be out of character for head coach Bill Belichick, who has a history of trading stars before they’ve faded.That said, Gronkowski sure has seemed happy this offseason since making the decision to forego retirement for at least one more year.He’s been like the Energizer Bunny during practices and says he’s “refreshed” and “super excited” about the coming season — he appears to have his passion back for the game.And when Gronkowski is motivated and healthy, there aren’t many players

          What happens when a church is no longer a church?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Vatican City, Jul 10, 2018 / 02:49 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- St. Catherine of Siena Church was built by immigrants in a Catholic Boston neighborhood, in the late nineteenth century. For more than a century, it welcomed the poor, the lost, and the searching. Then in 2008, the church was closed.

A decade later the building opened its doors again, welcoming a new generation of seekers. But while the sanctuary is empty, the basement of the building has become a Dollar Tree, and those who enter are searching mostly for a bargain.

Around the world, with demographic shifts and a decline of worshippers in some countries, a growing number of church buildings are being closed. Safeguarding the sanctity of the once-hallowed ground where believers prayed and worshiped is becoming a perplexing problem for Church leaders.

To answer the tough question about what to do with shuttered churches, the Vatican has decided to host a conference from Nov. 29-30, addressing the issue from a multi-disciplinary perspective, in light of a growing interest in protecting the historic and cultural significance many churches still hold, even if they are unused.

The“God No Longer Lives Here?” conference is being organized by the cultural goods department of the Pontifical Council for Culture, the Italian bishops conference, and the Pontifical Gregorian University's Faculty of History and Cultural Heritage of the Church.

At a July 10 press conference announcing the November event, Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, president of the Vatican's culture office, said the problem of what to do with churches or sacred places that are no longer used is a “transversal” problem, with historic, spatial, socio-cultural and even academic and legal dimensions.

When the idea to host a conference about the topic was initially pitched, Ravsi said he was skeptical, thinking the issue would only be of interest to a small pool of experts, however, instead there was an “extraordinary reaction” not only from bishops conferences, but also academics and even UNESCO, who in the past has sent representatives to episcopal conference meetings to hear their thoughts on the closing of ancient religious structures believed to hold special cultural and historic significance.

In comments to the press, Ravasi said that while the issue of what to do with churches that have been closed has always been an issue, the current increase in interest is “one of the mirrors of the decline of religious practice, of secularization,” and of “a lack of priests.”

The prime reasons churches are shut down is due to the small size of the congregation that attends services, to a lack of priests, or when parishes merge for pastoral reasons, Ravisi said.

The conference, then, will help to highlight the crisis in the decline of belief, but it will also ensure that churches and other sacred places are not sold off to buyers who will but them to profane use given the history of the structure.

Part of the goal of the November conference will be to draft guidelines for what to do with churches that are de-consecrated and potentially sold.

The first day of the conference will be dedicated to several talks pitching ideas for solutions, followed by discussion. The second and final day will be dedicated to further discussion and the drafting of the guidelines, which will either be published as a directive from the Vatican's Council for Culture, or they will be adopted and published at a more universal level as a document from the Holy See, though modifications will likely be made if the latter is the case.

Representatives of bishops’ conferences, the Vatican's culture office and university professors will add their voice to the discussion, offering their own contribution for what the guidelines should include.

Conference organizers also announced a photo contest that will take place primarily on Instagram, with the hashtag “#nolongerchurches,” and will encourage photographers to document what happens to de-consecrated churches. The photos selected will also be displayed in an exhibit, and they will be published in the Italian Magazine “Arte cristiana, Casabella e Chiesa: architettura e communicazione.”

In comments to the press, Archbishop Nunzio Galantino, president of the Administration of the Patrimony of the Holy See (APSA) and until now secretary general of the Italian bishops conference, said the topic of what to do with de-consecrated churches is a “salient issue,” and one that is important for the Italian bishops.

Though the question of what to do with an increase in churches being closed is primarily a problem in France, Belgium, Holland, Germany and Switzerland, according to a press release on the conference, Italy, the United States and Canada have also faced similar dilemmas.

And opposition to the sale of sacred spaces has increased even among non-believers, many of whom believe churches, even if unused, add historic, cultural and artistic value to their communities.

“What is the situation today? We have a change of context,” he said, pointing to the problem of decreasing Mass attendance, priest shortages and the closing of rural churches which have gone unused for years.

The issue is a social, cultural and economic problem, he said, explaining that when these churches belong to dioceses and parishes, it is easier to keep them in use and take care of them, but when these churches are no longer associated with a diocese or parish, often and unfortunately “there is a private interest” involved in what happens to it.

Professor Ottavio Bucarelli, who works at the Faculty of History and Cultural Heritage of the Church at the Gregorian University in Rome, was also present at the press conference, and told journalists the “sacred nature” of places of worship must always be respected.

“A church remains a church even when it is no longer a church, even when it has been transformed into something else,” he said, “so at a certain point we have to respect the faith of so many believers who have prayed and worshiped there for centuries.”

          Sale to square off vs. Colon in series finale      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The Red Sox send ace Chris Sale to the mound for Wednesday night's finale of this three-game series against the Rangers. Sale has been on fire over the last month, going 4-1 with a 1.10 ERA in his last six starts. It will be an intriguing matchup, as the Rangers counter with their ageless veteran Bartolo Colon (5-6, 4.65 ERA). Colon has made 17 career appearances at Fenway Park, going 7-6 with a 3.74 ERA. This is the first time the righty has pitched in Boston since April 23, 2013, when he fired seven scoreless innings for the Athletics en route to victory. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. ET.
