          MEJO, East Madison Community Center Kids, and Gambian Youths of Wisconsin Go Fishing!      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
On Saturday, July 7, the MEJO Starkweather project team, kids in the East Madison Community Center summer programs, and Gambian Youths of Wisconsin went to the mouth of Starkweather Creek to fish. It was a beautiful day and the fishing was great. Many kids and adults caught a fish or two (mostly panfish, but also a bass and pike!). The kids, many who had never fished before, had a wonderful time and would love to go fishing again. Though some fish were thrown back, 18 panfish were kept. Are these fish safe to eat? Generally speaking, the small panfish in Lake Monona are low in contaminants (mercury, PCBs) compared to larger fish. General Wisconsin statewide fish consumption advisories recommend one panfish meal a week for women of childbearing age and children under 15, and there are no consumption restrictions for women over 50 and all adult men. It is good that the state issues advisories for safe fish consumption. But we believe nobody should have to worry about fish contaminants at all; fish is local, fresh food and fishing is a healthy outdoor activity that connects people to waterways. Our Starkweather EJ team is engaging the community in discussions about pollution affecting the creek—as the largest tributary to Lake Monona, it is one of the main sources of toxic contamination to the lake and its fish. We’re talking with people in the community about their knowledge and concerns about the creek, and their recommendations about how to clean it up so that in the future we can go down to the creek and lake, catch fish, and eat them without any concerns about toxic contaminants. See more photos of our fishing trip below: Oh, the waiting can be so hard… Mack catches the first fish!! Learning to cast… Caught a fish! Touyeng was the “go to” bait man! Counting the catch… Eating pizza after counting the catch (fishing makes you hungry!)

          Cabaret at Everyman Theatre Stars Broadway Actors Judy McLane and Philip Hernandez in a program called 'Broadway Favorites: A Summer Cabaret      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

I congratulate Everyman Theatre for presenting their initial Summer Cabaret which includes the stars from their wonderful production of LOS OTROS, Judy McLane and Philip Hernandez. The event will be at Everyman's intimate rehearsal hall Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m.

Judy McLane (MAMMA MIA!) and Philip Hernandez (LES MISERABLES) will be singing numbers from the Broadway songbook.

"Whether it's THE IMPOSSIBLE DREAM from MAN OF LA MANCHA or familiar tunes from MAMMA MIA!, "Broadway Favorites: A Summer Cabaret" is sure to be a joyous experience" said Cabaret Director Noah Himmelstein. "We are delighted to reunite the remarkably talented stars of 2017's LOS OTROS for an evening of best loved Broadway entertainment.

Tickets are $40 for general admission (table seating) and are available online at www.everymantheatre.org, by phone at 410-752-2208 or at the Everyman Theatre Box Office (315 W. Fayette Street, Baltimore, MD.

The following is a Q. and A. with Hernandez, Himmelstein, and Musical Director Dan Green.

FOR PHILIP HERNANDEZ

1.How and when did you know about this Cabaret performance?

Noah Himmelstein, our director from Los Otros, called and said he was interested in having Judy and I kick off a Cabaret Series at Everyman. So, of course, I said 'Yes.'

2. You and Judy worked so well together. How do you feel about being reunited?

Working with Judy and Noah on Los Otros was a wonderful experience and I jumped at the chance to work with them both again. This is the fourth time that Judy and I will be working together. She's an exceptional talent and always a joy to work with. Everyman is a world class theatre and I'm so excited to be working here again.

FOR Noah Himmelstein:

1. How and when did you get the opportunity to direct BROADWAY FAVORITES?

As Associate Artistic Director at Everyman, I am often looking for programming that compliments the productions happening on the main stage. Vincent M. Lancisi, the Artistic Director, and I were talking about how wonderful it was to do the new musical Los Otros last year and how much we wanted to get music back into our space this summer. Creating a cabaret for two weekends this summer was a way to do this during a time when we are usually not producing. It so happened that the first idea I had-to bring back down two of our favorite artists, Judy McLane and Philip Hernandez-happily worked out.

2. Have you ever directed musicals or cabarets before?

Much of my work is in the development and directing of new musicals. I did a couple cabarets when I was first starting out, and have directed several gala performances-which requires crafting pre-existing material in the form of songs and stories to create a compelling, whole experience. I recently collaborated with writers Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty in this type of work.

3. The shows that are being represented include EVITA, WEST SIDE STORY, LES MIS, WICKED BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY, MAN OF LA MANCHA...who selected these? By the way....BRIDGES is one of my favorites.

I wanted this to be a celebration of the music and memories of two artists who have an immense body of work on the Broadway, off Broadway and regional stage in many joyous and well-known pieces, in addition to material I believe our audiences would love to hear them do and that they would get a kick out of learning. It's been a very happy rehearsal period of much laughter and exquisite singing and storytelling.

4. Have you ever worked with Judy or Philip?

Last year, I directed Los Otros; a beautiful new musical by Ellen Fitzhugh and Michael John LaChiusa at Everyman that featured Judy and Philip. It's a stunning piece about the identity, social and racial politics of two Californians covering 40+ years of their lives. Judy and Philip gave remarkable performances as Lillian and Carlos, from ages 12 into middle age. The audience adored their epic talents and warm, engaging personalities. I'm thrilled to be working with them again in a much more informal environment where they'll be performing in our spacious rehearsal room.

5. How much time will you have to rehearse with them and how does one direct something like this?

It's about selecting specific material and arrangements with the actors and creating a narrative that feels part of, comments on, enriches the space and time we are performing it in. It's about balancing humor, pathos, and fun, in the hopes of crafting an evening that can deliver a theatrical experience with the life stories of two wonderful artists. With our second collaboration, we've developed a shorthand in working together. Judy and Philip also have performed in several shows together before Los Otros, including the original Broadway production of Kiss of the Spider Woman, so there is a long relationship to build upon.

6. What are you next working on?

I have several projects in development coming up at regional theatres and in New York. Most notably at Everyman, I'm directing a really terrific play by Chelsea Marcantel-Everything is Wonderful-about an Amish family who is irrevocably transformed by a freak accident in their community. I think those who were fans of The Book of Joseph will especially be thrilled by this piece, which also involves a deeply emotional time convention and mysticism to allow a family to really see each other. It begins performances late January 2019.

FOR DAN GREEN:

1.How did you get involved with this Cabaret?

I first met Noah Himmelstein, the director, from work we had done together with the composer Andrew Lippa on his oratorio I Am Harvey Milk-this fantastic choral piece celebrating the life of the gay rights activist. I'm also a composer and Andrew has been a longtime mentor to me, so it was nice to meet Noah in that capacity. I've split my career between composing and music directing. I have a passion for both, and I've been fortunate to meet some performers, directors, etc. on projects that I was music directing that I was then able to work with on my writing, and vice versa. I have a couple musicals that are hopefully getting premiere productions in the next couple years, in New York and around the country, so stay tuned!

2. What is it like be on the piano in the pit for the hit musical WICKED?

I've been lucky to sub for several Broadway shows since moving to New York. Wicked was one of my first and, thankfully, it has enjoyed a healthy run! I'm not there every night, so it takes a while to get used to jumping back into the show, but I've played it long enough now that I can relax and enjoy it-and the crowd cheering at the top never gets old.

3. How did you enjoy being associate conductor of ROCKY and how would you define Associate Conductor.

Rocky was a fantastic experience. I started assisting the songwriters, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, before the very first reading, and stayed with the show through its development until Broadway. Associate conducting meant that I was usually playing piano, but a couple times a week would get to conduct the show. The end of the show was the epic boxing match between Rocky and Apollo and the ring actually slid out into the house, over the conductor podium! We had a little button to press to bring the podium down to the floor so we didn't get decapitated. I wish we'd been able to keep the show open longer, but all of us had a blast and I was so lucky to work on it.

4. Have you worked before with Judy and/or Philip?

This is my first time working with Judy and Philip, but they had me in stitches within minutes of our first meeting, so I know Baltimore audiences are in for a treat!

5. Will there be any other instruments besides you on the piano?

Judy and Philip are pros who have worked together before, so they know what they want out of an evening like this-my job is to give them a nice musical support system. I'll write a few arrangements of existing tunes and accompany them from the piano. It will be great to celebrate some classic Broadway songs as well as some more contemporary numbers-there should be something for everyone.

FOR PHILIP HERNANDEZ

1.How and when did you know about this Cabaret performance?

Noah Himmelstein, our director from Los Otros, called and said he was interested in having Judy and I kick off a Cabaret Series at Everyman. So, of course, I said 'Yes.'

2. You and Judy worked so well together. How do you feel about being reunited?

Working with Judy and Noah on Los Otros was a wonderful experience and I jumped at the chance to work with them both again. This is the fourth time that Judy and I will be working together. She's an exceptional talent and always a joy to work with. Everyman is a world class theatre and I'm so excited to be working here again.

          Uso creciente de aire acondicionado agrava la contaminación atmosférica      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

El uso creciente del aire acondicionado, especialmente en épocas de verano y ante las altas temperaturas, está degradando aún más la calidad del aire y agravando la contaminación atmosférica, según un estudio publicado en la revista PLOS Medicine.

Tal es el efecto, que un equipo de investigadores de la Universidad de Wisconsin-Madison (EU) pronosticó mil muertes adicionales por año en la zona este del país a mediados de siglo por culpa de niveles elevados de contaminación del aire provocados por el mayor uso de combustibles fósiles para enfriar edificios.

El análisis combina proyecciones de cinco modelos diferentes para pronosticar un mayor uso de energía durante el verano en un mundo más cálido y cómo eso afectaría el consumo energético de los combustibles fósiles, la calidad del aire y, en consecuencia, la salud humana en unas décadas.

El autor principal del estudio, Jonathan Patz, de la UW-Madison, aseguró que durante las épocas veraniegas del futuro, en las que las olas de calor aumentarán en frecuencia e intensidad, el aire acondicionado "salvará vidas".

Sin embargo, el profesor Patz advirtió de que si este uso ascendente de aire acondicionado depende de la energía derivada de los combustibles fósiles, la contaminación atmosférica "causará más enfermedades y muertes".

Los edificios residenciales y de oficinas son los mayores consumidores de energía en Estados Unidos, responsables de más del 60 % de la demanda energética en el este del país, donde se ha desarrollado el estudio.

El informe proyecta 13,000 muertes humanas adicionales anuales causadas por niveles más altos de partículas finas en el verano y 3,000 ocasionadas por el ozono en Estados Unidos a mediados de siglo.

La mayoría de esos fallecimientos serán atribuibles a procesos naturales como la química atmosférica y las emisiones naturales, que se ven afectadas por el aumento de las temperaturas.

Sin embargo, alrededor de mil de esas muertes cada año ocurrirán debido a un mayor uso de aire acondicionado impulsado por combustible fósil, según el análisis.

Los resultados del nuevo estudio, de acuerdo con el equipo de Wisconsin, subrayan la necesidad de cambiar a fuentes de energía más sostenibles, como la eólica y solar, y desplegar más equipos de aire acondicionado que ahorren energía.

          Comment on How Higher Wages for Uber Drivers Could Cut Traffic on NYC Streets by Jay      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
There are many Uber vehicles due to demand. And that's because the mass transit system has failed many New Yorkers. What DeBlasio, Cuomo & Lander refuse to recognize is that it is not the Uber & other vehicles clogging traffic. Rather, it stems from failed policies of the Bloomberg and DeBlasio Administrations. For example, instead of five lanes of traffic on an Avenue, there are now four- why? Because one lane is reserved for bikes. Of course, when squeezing 100% into 80%, traffic will occur. On top of this, there are now two lanes reserved for Buses on some Avenues so there are only 2 lanes available for cars on Madison Avenue. Further complicating matters is the insistence of both DeBlasio and Lander to close traffic off in Central (and Prospect) Park, forcing cars which would have flowed through Central Park, back on our streets; this backs up cars for miles on Avenues on both the East and West Sides. Finally, there the Bloomberg street parks which closes off Broadway to traffic from 50th Street to 32nd Street, forcing cars onto adjacent streets, causing backups not only on the Avenues, but the side streets too. Get rid of the bike lanes, the pedestrian islands, the double bus lanes, pedestrian malls, re-open up Broadway and Central Park and the lanes around Union Square to traffic and one will start seeing buses and cars moving much faster.

          September 29 - PHUN      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
PHUN
PHUN began on a snowy January afternoon in 2009 when Guitarist Mike Scieszinski called four musicians together for the first rehearsal in Madison. But the seeds for PHUN were planted long ago in a dorm room in Steven's Point.

Mike and Bassist Mark Norman shared a dorm room at The University of Wisconsin - Steven's Point in 1999. The experiences they shared studying music by day, and gigging at local bars by night, formed a friendship that has lasted two decades. They listened to a LOT of Phish:)

Three of the 4 members of the band are former members of the Madison based Progressive Jam Rock group Run Side Down. Jon, Joe and Mike were members of that band that would become PHUN.

PHUN began with the simple mission; to play the music of Phish because it would be a good time. These days, that mission is being fulfilled in more ways than we imagined! Spreading the gospel according to Fishman, one show at a time, and melting faces along the way; just Sharin' in the Groove, and trying to have, dare we say it................ PHUN?
          November 23 - The R&B Cadets      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The R&B Cadets
The R&B Cadets played their first gig shortly after New Year's in 1980 and their last in the summer of 1986. In that time they got a lot of folks out on the dance floor, playing a distinctive mix of of deep soul cuts from Paul Cebar's massive record collection and some sparkling originals, written by John Sieger, often in tandem with Michael Feldman, a friend and now longtime host of Public Radio's Whad'ya Know?

Splitting lead duties with Sieger and Cebar was the lovely chanteuse, Robin Pluer. Owner of one the lovelier voice heard in the midwest, Ms. Pluer was a dollop of sweetness at the top of the band's deep range. Rounding out the lineup was Mike Sieger, John's brother and vocal doppelganger, who played bass. Original drummer Cy Costabile, was later replaced by Bobby Schneider and the saxophonist Juli Wood was replaced by keyboard/sax man Bob Jennings.

In it's prime, the band had a large following in Milwaukee, where they were pretty much the house band at the late, lamented Century Hall. They travelled well too, with fans in the Twin Cities, Chicago, Madison and even New York where they played legendary clubs like CBGB's, The Knitting Factory and The Lone Star. Their only record, Top Happy, came out in 198-. It featured a song produced by Nick Lowe, a fan who had stumbled across them after playing a show in Milwaukee. The record got great reviews and could have been the start of even bigger things, but like many bands, people were pulling, and being pulled, in different directions.

The positive result of their breakup was two, then three very vital and entertaining acts. There was Semi-Twang, which concentrated on John's songs and did a record, Salty Tears for Warner Brothers that gathered more love than sales. John later moved to nashville and had many of his songs recorded by artist like Dwight Yoakam, Flaco Jimenez and The Bodeans.

Paul and Robin continued with the beefed up and ever-popular Milwaukeeans, releasing a record in the 1990s on Shenachie that got radio play around the country. That lineup stayed around until Robin bid adieu. Tired of touring and now married, she headed to New York for a while, before returning. She has carved out a special niche between soul, swing, standards and the French chanson that she loves, and is still performing today.

In 2009 Semi-Twang reunited and have released two CDs, both of which garnered raves. Paul has continued non-stop, his latest was out last year with his most recent moniker, Tomorrow Sound. The three headed beast has been in rehearsal, tightening up songs old and new. The crowd at their first reunion gig in many years was up and dancing at the first down beat, you probably will be too.

          Cabaret at Everyman Theatre Stars Broadway Actors Judy McLane and Philip Hernandez in a program called 'Broadway Favorites: A Summer Cabaret      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

I congratulate Everyman Theatre for presenting their initial Summer Cabaret which includes the stars from their wonderful production of LOS OTROS, Judy McLane and Philip Hernandez. The event will be at Everyman's intimate rehearsal hall Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m.

Judy McLane (MAMMA MIA!) and Philip Hernandez (LES MISERABLES) will be singing numbers from the Broadway songbook.

"Whether it's THE IMPOSSIBLE DREAM from MAN OF LA MANCHA or familiar tunes from MAMMA MIA!, "Broadway Favorites: A Summer Cabaret" is sure to be a joyous experience" said Cabaret Director Noah Himmelstein. "We are delighted to reunite the remarkably talented stars of 2017's LOS OTROS for an evening of best loved Broadway entertainment.

Tickets are $40 for general admission (table seating) and are available online at www.everymantheatre.org, by phone at 410-752-2208 or at the Everyman Theatre Box Office (315 W. Fayette Street, Baltimore, MD.

The following is a Q. and A. with Hernandez, Himmelstein, and Musical Director Dan Green.

FOR PHILIP HERNANDEZ

1.How and when did you know about this Cabaret performance?

Noah Himmelstein, our director from Los Otros, called and said he was interested in having Judy and I kick off a Cabaret Series at Everyman. So, of course, I said 'Yes.'

2. You and Judy worked so well together. How do you feel about being reunited?

Working with Judy and Noah on Los Otros was a wonderful experience and I jumped at the chance to work with them both again. This is the fourth time that Judy and I will be working together. She's an exceptional talent and always a joy to work with. Everyman is a world class theatre and I'm so excited to be working here again.

FOR Noah Himmelstein:

1. How and when did you get the opportunity to direct BROADWAY FAVORITES?

As Associate Artistic Director at Everyman, I am often looking for programming that compliments the productions happening on the main stage. Vincent M. Lancisi, the Artistic Director, and I were talking about how wonderful it was to do the new musical Los Otros last year and how much we wanted to get music back into our space this summer. Creating a cabaret for two weekends this summer was a way to do this during a time when we are usually not producing. It so happened that the first idea I had-to bring back down two of our favorite artists, Judy McLane and Philip Hernandez-happily worked out.

2. Have you ever directed musicals or cabarets before?

Much of my work is in the development and directing of new musicals. I did a couple cabarets when I was first starting out, and have directed several gala performances-which requires crafting pre-existing material in the form of songs and stories to create a compelling, whole experience. I recently collaborated with writers Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty in this type of work.

3. The shows that are being represented include EVITA, WEST SIDE STORY, LES MIS, WICKED BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY, MAN OF LA MANCHA...who selected these? By the way....BRIDGES is one of my favorites.

I wanted this to be a celebration of the music and memories of two artists who have an immense body of work on the Broadway, off Broadway and regional stage in many joyous and well-known pieces, in addition to material I believe our audiences would love to hear them do and that they would get a kick out of learning. It's been a very happy rehearsal period of much laughter and exquisite singing and storytelling.

4. Have you ever worked with Judy or Philip?

Last year, I directed Los Otros; a beautiful new musical by Ellen Fitzhugh and Michael John LaChiusa at Everyman that featured Judy and Philip. It's a stunning piece about the identity, social and racial politics of two Californians covering 40+ years of their lives. Judy and Philip gave remarkable performances as Lillian and Carlos, from ages 12 into middle age. The audience adored their epic talents and warm, engaging personalities. I'm thrilled to be working with them again in a much more informal environment where they'll be performing in our spacious rehearsal room.

5. How much time will you have to rehearse with them and how does one direct something like this?

It's about selecting specific material and arrangements with the actors and creating a narrative that feels part of, comments on, enriches the space and time we are performing it in. It's about balancing humor, pathos, and fun, in the hopes of crafting an evening that can deliver a theatrical experience with the life stories of two wonderful artists. With our second collaboration, we've developed a shorthand in working together. Judy and Philip also have performed in several shows together before Los Otros, including the original Broadway production of Kiss of the Spider Woman, so there is a long relationship to build upon.

6. What are you next working on?

I have several projects in development coming up at regional theatres and in New York. Most notably at Everyman, I'm directing a really terrific play by Chelsea Marcantel-Everything is Wonderful-about an Amish family who is irrevocably transformed by a freak accident in their community. I think those who were fans of The Book of Joseph will especially be thrilled by this piece, which also involves a deeply emotional time convention and mysticism to allow a family to really see each other. It begins performances late January 2019.

FOR DAN GREEN:

1.How did you get involved with this Cabaret?

I first met Noah Himmelstein, the director, from work we had done together with the composer Andrew Lippa on his oratorio I Am Harvey Milk-this fantastic choral piece celebrating the life of the gay rights activist. I'm also a composer and Andrew has been a longtime mentor to me, so it was nice to meet Noah in that capacity. I've split my career between composing and music directing. I have a passion for both, and I've been fortunate to meet some performers, directors, etc. on projects that I was music directing that I was then able to work with on my writing, and vice versa. I have a couple musicals that are hopefully getting premiere productions in the next couple years, in New York and around the country, so stay tuned!

2. What is it like be on the piano in the pit for the hit musical WICKED?

I've been lucky to sub for several Broadway shows since moving to New York. Wicked was one of my first and, thankfully, it has enjoyed a healthy run! I'm not there every night, so it takes a while to get used to jumping back into the show, but I've played it long enough now that I can relax and enjoy it-and the crowd cheering at the top never gets old.

3. How did you enjoy being associate conductor of ROCKY and how would you define Associate Conductor.

Rocky was a fantastic experience. I started assisting the songwriters, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, before the very first reading, and stayed with the show through its development until Broadway. Associate conducting meant that I was usually playing piano, but a couple times a week would get to conduct the show. The end of the show was the epic boxing match between Rocky and Apollo and the ring actually slid out into the house, over the conductor podium! We had a little button to press to bring the podium down to the floor so we didn't get decapitated. I wish we'd been able to keep the show open longer, but all of us had a blast and I was so lucky to work on it.

4. Have you worked before with Judy and/or Philip?

This is my first time working with Judy and Philip, but they had me in stitches within minutes of our first meeting, so I know Baltimore audiences are in for a treat!

5. Will there be any other instruments besides you on the piano?

Judy and Philip are pros who have worked together before, so they know what they want out of an evening like this-my job is to give them a nice musical support system. I'll write a few arrangements of existing tunes and accompany them from the piano. It will be great to celebrate some classic Broadway songs as well as some more contemporary numbers-there should be something for everyone.

The following is the result of questions to Hernandez, Himmelstein, and Musical Director Dan Green.

FOR PHILIP HERNANDEZ

1.How and when did you know about this Cabaret performance?

Noah Himmelstein, our director from Los Otros, called and said he was interested in having Judy and I kick off a Cabaret Series at Everyman. So, of course, I said 'Yes.'

2. You and Judy worked so well together. How do you feel about being reunited?

Working with Judy and Noah on Los Otros was a wonderful experience and I jumped at the chance to work with them both again. This is the fourth time that Judy and I will be working together. She's an exceptional talent and always a joy to work with. Everyman is a world class theatre and I'm so excited to be working here again.

FOR Noah Himmelstein:

1. How and when did you get the opportunity to direct BROADWAY FAVORITES?

As Associate Artistic Director at Everyman, I am often looking for programming that compliments the productions happening on the main stage. Vincent M. Lancisi, the Artistic Director, and I were talking about how wonderful it was to do the new musical Los Otros last year and how much we wanted to get music back into our space this summer. Creating a cabaret for two weekends this summer was a way to do this during a time when we are usually not producing. It so happened that the first idea I had-to bring back down two of our favorite artists, Judy McLane and Philip Hernandez-happily worked out.

2. Have you ever directed musicals or cabarets before?

Much of my work is in the development and directing of new musicals. I did a couple cabarets when I was first starting out, and have directed several gala performances-which requires crafting pre-existing material in the form of songs and stories to create a compelling, whole experience. I recently collaborated with writers Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty in this type of work.

3. The shows that are being represented include EVITA, WEST SIDE STORY, LES MIS, WICKED BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY, MAN OF LA MANCHA...who selected these? By the way....BRIDGES is one of my favorites.

I wanted this to be a celebration of the music and memories of two artists who have an immense body of work on the Broadway, off Broadway and regional stage in many joyous and well-known pieces, in addition to material I believe our audiences would love to hear them do and that they would get a kick out of learning. It's been a very happy rehearsal period of much laughter and exquisite singing and storytelling.

4. Have you ever worked with Judy or Philip?

Last year, I directed Los Otros; a beautiful new musical by Ellen Fitzhugh and Michael John LaChiusa at Everyman that featured Judy and Philip. It's a stunning piece about the identity, social and racial politics of two Californians covering 40+ years of their lives. Judy and Philip gave remarkable performances as Lillian and Carlos, from ages 12 into middle age. The audience adored their epic talents and warm, engaging personalities. I'm thrilled to be working with them again in a much more informal environment where they'll be performing in our spacious rehearsal room.

5. How much time will you have to rehearse with them and how does one direct something like this?

It's about selecting specific material and arrangements with the actors and creating a narrative that feels part of, comments on, enriches the space and time we are performing it in. It's about balancing humor, pathos, and fun, in the hopes of crafting an evening that can deliver a theatrical experience with the life stories of two wonderful artists. With our second collaboration, we've developed a shorthand in working together. Judy and Philip also have performed in several shows together before Los Otros, including the original Broadway production of Kiss of the Spider Woman, so there is a long relationship to build upon.

6. What are you next working on?

I have several projects in development coming up at regional theatres and in New York. Most notably at Everyman, I'm directing a really terrific play by Chelsea Marcantel-Everything is Wonderful-about an Amish family who is irrevocably transformed by a freak accident in their community. I think those who were fans of The Book of Joseph will especially be thrilled by this piece, which also involves a deeply emotional time convention and mysticism to allow a family to really see each other. It begins performances late January 2019.

FOR DAN GREEN:

1.How did you get involved with this Cabaret?

I first met Noah Himmelstein, the director, from work we had done together with the composer Andrew Lippa on his oratorio I Am Harvey Milk-this fantastic choral piece celebrating the life of the gay rights activist. I'm also a composer and Andrew has been a longtime mentor to me, so it was nice to meet Noah in that capacity. I've split my career between composing and music directing. I have a passion for both, and I've been fortunate to meet some performers, directors, etc. on projects that I was music directing that I was then able to work with on my writing, and vice versa. I have a couple musicals that are hopefully getting premiere productions in the next couple years, in New York and around the country, so stay tuned!

2. What is it like be on the piano in the pit for the hit musical WICKED?

I've been lucky to sub for several Broadway shows since moving to New York. Wicked was one of my first and, thankfully, it has enjoyed a healthy run! I'm not there every night, so it takes a while to get used to jumping back into the show, but I've played it long enough now that I can relax and enjoy it-and the crowd cheering at the top never gets old.

3. How did you enjoy being associate conductor of ROCKY and how would you define Associate Conductor.

Rocky was a fantastic experience. I started assisting the songwriters, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, before the very first reading, and stayed with the show through its development until Broadway. Associate conducting meant that I was usually playing piano, but a couple times a week would get to conduct the show. The end of the show was the epic boxing match between Rocky and Apollo and the ring actually slid out into the house, over the conductor podium! We had a little button to press to bring the podium down to the floor so we didn't get decapitated. I wish we'd been able to keep the show open longer, but all of us had a blast and I was so lucky to work on it.

4. Have you worked before with Judy and/or Philip?

This is my first time working with Judy and Philip, but they had me in stitches within minutes of our first meeting, so I know Baltimore audiences are in for a treat!

5. Will there be any other instruments besides you on the piano?

Judy and Philip are pros who have worked together before, so they know what they want out of an evening like this-my job is to give them a nice musical support system. I'll write a few arrangements of existing tunes and accompany them from the piano. It will be great to celebrate some classic Broadway songs as well as some more contemporary numbers-there should be something for everyone.

          The Definitive List: Ranking All The ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race' Queens From 1 to 126      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

A total of 126, you read that right, one hundred and twenty six queens have sashayed their way into the work room on RuPaul's Drag Race over the past ten years. 

The show, which started off pretty small in 2009, has grown into a multiple Emmy-award winning program that has given a platform to drag like it never has before. 

Many of the queens who competed on the show have taken that platform and done some wonderful things with it. They have developed larger social media followings than many celebrities out there, as all kinds of people are completely enamored with who they are both on and off the show. It's a testament to how the times have changed for the LGBTQ community in terms of acceptance and visibility, and each and every single one of these queens should feel proud about what they have accomplished.

I have come up with, in my own special way, a ranking list of all the queens that have competed since season one. To each their own, of course, but this list only focuses on how they did in their individual seasons. It does not include their lives post-show (for the most part), and it also doesn't mention anything about All Stars as that is a separate entity.

So, without further ado, take a look at who landed where from their time on the best reality competition program in the world. 

1st. Bianca Del Rio (Season 6). A no brainer here. Just a standout drag queen who stayed true to herself the whole time and pulled out an easy win in the end of the show’s best season.

2nd. Alaska (Season 5). Here’s someone who tried out for all five seasons, watched her boyfriend Sharon make it on after his first try and win, and still come through and bust her ass to make it to the end. If Ru ever needs someone to fill in or replace her at some point, it would have to be Alaska as her love for drag and this show is undeniable and her work ethic to get to where she was on that season was downright incredible to see.

3rd. Latrice Royale (Season 4). The Oprah of drag. You just love her. You love her confidence, her laugh, her fashion, her humor… everything. Just an amazing spirit and human being.

4th. Katya (Season 7). Weird and original is a delicious formula, and Katya was the textbook definition of that in S7. Should’ve made it further than she did, but she’s an easy winner in our books all this time later.

5th. Jinkx Monsoon (Season 5). We rooted for Jinkx in season 5 as she had to deal with so much hateration from several other queens and Michelle Visage that it was sort of a foregone conclusion that she would win in the end from all the support she had. And she did.

6th. Bob the Drag Queen (Season 8). Commanded the werk room from day one. Never really faltered. Won in the end. Remained humble. Fin.

7th. Alyssa Edwards (Season 5). One of the most unintentionally funny queens to ever compete on RPDR. All Stars helped cement this, but season 5 helped with it and made her a household name for a variety of reasons from Alyssa’s Secret to “Back Rolls” and so much more.

8th. Sharon Needles (Season 4). Sharon paved the way for future queens who didn’t fit the pageant and glamour aesthetic that the show was sort of known for in its first three seasons. Her type of drag and personality would’ve either got her sent home first or had her go to the distance, and it was beautiful to see her do the latter and take home the crown in the end.

9th. Adore Delano (Season 6). Here’s a queen that could’ve gone home during the first two episodes she was on in her season and then did a complete 180 to almost win the whole thing in the end. Her journey was one that this sort of show was made of, and it was beyond fun to watch as she kept creeping towards the top.

10th. Willam (Season 4). The only queen to be disqualified from the show and still has an IDGAF attitude about it. Willam was the star of season 4 and let that be known while many of the other girls grew frustrated about his attitude. We, the public, loved it, and continue to do so to this day.

11th. Raja (Season 3). Fierce all the way through, took no s**t, was funny, creative, innovative, etc. etc. etc. Easy winner for S3.

12th. Raven (Season 2). The eternal runner up and the true winner of season 2. The best damn makeup artist the show has ever had and a personality that is equally captivating and scary all at the same time (in the best of ways possible).

13th. Detox (Season 5). The people’s queen. Season 5 had so many amazing cast members, none of which came close however to Detox in terms of personality and just being a kickass bitch in every single episode. Was fun to watch from start to end.

14th. Jujubee (Season 2). Is there anyone more loved from this show than Juju? She never won the show, never won a competition… but who CARES! She’s that queen we all want to be, the one we would want to hang out with in high school and helped put this show on the map in its early years.

15th. Sasha Velour (Season 9). So many other queens were deemed front runners in the beginning of season 9 that didn’t really include Sasha. She showed them, time and time again, just how much of a competitor she won, and blew our freaking heads off to earn that win in the end (rose petals. Duh.)

16th. Manila Luzon (Season 3). A good mixture of the four qualities that make up a Drag Race winner but came up short against Raja in the end.

17th. Violet Chachki (Season 7). Jaws dropped every time she came onto the runway. Came there to win… and she did, even if it meant that she wouldn’t be in the best light for most of the season.

18th. Trixie Mattel (Season 7). All Stars not included, Trixie got a raw deal early in season seven but was so freaking well liked that it was a foregone conclusion that she would return. That definitely rings true to this day.

19th. Kim Chi (Season 8). So. Much. Fun. To. Watch. Every outfit was great, no matter what she wore, but she also had a great back story to her in terms of her insecurities and family life. Would’ve won easily if Bob wasn’t in her way.

20th. Aquaria (Season 10). Easily the most fashionable queen from her season and maybe top 5 in all seasons. What was great about Aquaria is that her personality developed so well from someone who read as cold and reserved to somewhat of a sweetheart by the time she took the season 10 crown.

21st. Ginger Minj (Season 7). Should’ve won that season. She’s the type of queen you want to see when you go to a drag show. I still don’t understand to this day how she lost.

22nd. Shea Coulee (Season 9). It was Shea’s game to lose, and it’s a shame that the new “lip sync for the crown” format f***ed that up for her. If that didn’t change, she would have the crown on her head today.

23rd. Chi Chi DeVayne (Season 8). I think a lot of people pegged Chi Chi to go home first but she proved many of us wrong on several levels. Her comedy, fashion sense and likability propelled her into the top four and could’ve easily gotten her a top three spot according to many fans of the show.

24th. BenDeLaCreme (Season 6). Effervescent with a quirky and unique attitude, Ben was easily one of the biggest stars of season 6 and played her drag character extremely well… much to the chagrin of Michelle.

25th. Shangela (Season 2 and 3). Halleloo! She went home first in season 2 only to emerge (out of a box) and dominate the next season. It was a ton of fun to see her take on the “Heathers” and knock a couple of them out in the process as well.

26th. Phi Phi O’Hara (Season 4). The original Drag Race “villain” of sorts… but was she? Phi Phi came ready to win at all costs, and it rubbed the other queens and viewers the wrong way. It’s worth taking a look at the show again, as she really was in it to win it and wasn’t taking anyone’s bulls**t along the way.

27. Nina Flowers (Season 1). Nina was the first queen to make it to the end of her season having never lip synced or be in the bottom two. An arguable winner against the one who took the crown.

28th. Eureka (Season 9 and 10). Would’ve gone the distance in season 9 most likely but made up for it in season 10 to become the only big girl to really have a shot at the crown (other than Ginger).

29th. Naomi Smalls (Season 8). The modeliest (sp?) of models to compete on RPDR, Naomi commanded the werk room the moment she walked in. Not only that, but she had a refreshing and fun personality to boot.

30th. Roxxxy Andrews (Season 5). I will always wonder how different Roxxxy would’ve been if Jinkx Monsoon wasn’t on the season. She spent so much time negatively critiquing her, that if she spent half that effort focusing on herself and how good she was, then she may have actually won the show’s fifth season.

31st. Peppermint (Season 9). Peppermint was the little engine that could in her season as she almost went home a handful of times. Still, she persevered and worked her way into the final two. That is something she should be incredibly proud of.

32. Chad Michaels (Season 4). Chad had a drag aesthetic of yesteryear but made it look great for the time she was on the show. Also, no one will ever do Cher better than she can… even Cher herself.

33rd. Ongina (Season 1). Criminally eliminated early on. She made bald look great in a wig-filled drag world and was fun, honest and exciting to watch in the show’s debut season.

34th. Asia O’Hara (Season 10). Asia was the mother-type on the most recent season and helped many queens out with their aesthetics and emotions. The butterfly thing was hard to watch but it really doesn’t matter as her career right now is brighter than ever (no pun here).

35th. Valentina (Season 9). Love her or hate her… she made good television. Valentina would’ve won season 9, we all know this, but she either forgot the words to a song or wanted to have a dramatic exit. Regardless, she’s become the licorice of Drag Race: you either want to beeline for it or avoid it at all costs in the supermarket.

36th. Kennedy Davenport (Season 7). Kennedy was classic drag in a modern era. Very southern, very pageantry, but it worked and helped her get to the final four in her season. Also her impression of Little Richard proved that a drag queen doesn’t need to impersonate a woman in order for it to be freaking hilarious.

37th. Yara Sofia (Season 3). Hands down one of the top three makeup artists to ever be on the show. Her looks were sickening each and every week, and she should’ve had more wins under her belt if the judges weren’t gagging for Raja’s looks all the time.

38th. Pandora Boxx (Season 2). The top three in season two would’ve been a lot more fun if it was Pandora, Raven and Jujubee. The first really funny queen to ever compete on RPDR where her talent outweighed her fashion choices (proving you don’t need that to win this show).

39th. Bebe Zahara Benet (Season 1). She exuded elegance all throughout season one which seemed to appeal to what RuPaul was looking for in a winner for the show’s first season. That worked wonders for her and helped get her the crown in the end.

40th. Trinity Taylor (Season 9). Trinity called every single person out that needed to be called out (Valentina, Charlie Hides, Eureka) and gave no f***s about it. We need more queens like her to tell it like it is without worrying about a social media backlash.

41st. Monet X Change (Season 10). So freaking lovable. It’s hard to say anything negative about Monet when she was such a joy to watch in season 10. One of the most likable queens to come out of the show in recent seasons, easily.

42nd. Courtney Act (Season 6). Courtney propelled herself into the top three of her season by showing consistent look after look after look while showcasing her phenomenal voice and fun acting talent. She wasn’t going to win against Bianca or Adore IMHO (maybe in another season sure), but she was heck of a lot of fun to watch on and off the runway.

43rd. Pearl (Season 7). Hmm. I would’ve never thought of Pearl as being a top three finalist, but she made it. Not sure how, really, but her whole “waking up” storyline in season 7 sort of helped in that and it got her to the end due to some strong showings as the show progressed.

44th. Tatianna (Season 2). Keep in mind, I’m only including original seasons here. If All Stars was a factor, she would be much higher. Tati was controversial for many reasons but did a really good job at holding her own against Raven and other queens who saw her as less than. She wasn’t and she isn’t… at all.

45th. Miz Cracker (Season 10). So talented. So funny. So original. So misunderstood. So frustrating. Didn’t deserve to go home at all. Calling my cable provider.

46th. Alexis Mateo (Season 3). She won as many challenges as she was in the bottom, it seems, and made it to the final three as the only quote unquote “booger” that season against Raja and Manila Luzon. She did, however, play a great game throughout and kept it real each and every episode.

47th. Carmen Carrera (Season 3). Such a knockout, beauty, etc. Probably the most stunning queen the show had up until that point. She did sort of rely on her body, as Michelle would say, but during the competition but it worked for her and got her very far in a sea of very talented competitors.

48th. Kameron Michaels (Season 10). Proof that quiet can get you far. Kameron is one of only two queens (besides Coco Montrese) to survive three lip syncs. Some thought she coasted throughout S10, but she was just playing a relaxed game while everyone else was pretty much going haywire.

49th. Tyra Sanchez (Season 2). The most controversial winner in RPDR history. Was Tyra good at fashion? Yes. Was she good at anything else? That’s arguable. She may have won but didn’t possess a lot of the characteristics that future winners had even when they first entered the werk room.

50th. Vanessa Vanjie Matteo (Season 10). How someone who went out first became the most memorable part of season 10 is quite frankly unreal. But saying your middle name three times while walking backwards will do that for you.

51st. Alexis Michelle (Season 9). A tad confident some would say but backed it up in a ton of challenges like her impressions of Kris Jenner and Liza Minnelli.

52nd. Joslyn Fox (Season 6). Quite possibly the most underrated queen the show has ever had. Go back and look at her Snatch Game and Reading Challenge performances for those receipts.

53rd. Aja (Season 9). Blunt, brutal, in your face and had a song created over her “aggressively complimenting” Valentina. Awesome.

54th. Miss Fame (Season 7). Could’ve easily been rotten and mean given how pretty she is, but was a simply sweet lady with a fashion sense that was some of the best the show has ever seen.

55th. Acid Betty (Season 8). There is no one like Acid Betty in terms of her makeup artistry and costume construction. She was so much fun to look at, but didn’t really seem like she was having that great of a time… at all.

56th. Darienne Lake (Season 6). Darienne did a good job in some of the challenges, primarily ones that highlighted her comedy ability, but she sort of got lucky in getting herself to the top 4.

57th. Monique Heart (Season 10). I didn’t get the hype with her originally. Now I think she’s awesome, hilarious and one of the most authentic queens to ever step foot into that werk room.

58th. Cynthia Lee Fontaine (Season 8 and 9). Queens like Cynthia are smart when it comes to finding something that is memorable only to them. “Do you want to see my cucu?” or any variation of the word “cucu” proves that point.

59th. Thorgy Thor (Season 8). The Raven of being a runner up in one season. She came close to winning so many challenges that Bob took, and then got kind of bitchy towards the end of it. She didn’t exactly redeem herself in All Stars either.

60th. Milk (Season 6). She got shat on by other queens for challenging drag stereotypes by dressing with a beard or in men’s clothing, but it so worked on her. One of my favorite queens from the best season of RPDR.

61st. Max (Season 7). Max did not deserve to go home that early on. She was uniquely talented in her character and viewpoint, but sadly did a bad Snatch Game impersonation and lost the lip sync later on in the episode.

62nd. Ivy Winters (Season 5). Yes, Ru made her name a catchphrase (it got annoying), but Ivy’s sweet exterior and fashion ability were fun to watch in season 5.

63rd. Trinity K. Bonet (Season 6). Fashion forward but lacked the confidence needed in a season that had a variety of headstrong personalities. Best lip syncer of the season… IMHO.

64th. Shannel (Season 1). Shannel could’ve easily won season one (or at least made it to the end) if she didn’t let her ego get in the way. She represented that classic, Las Vegas type showgirl that is underappreciated in today’s drag world.

65th. Jessica Wild (Season 2). The only queen to impersonate RuPaul really well (sorry, Trixie). Also needs a spot on All Stars at some point.

66th The Vixen (Season 10). Controversial, outspoken, polarizing, unapologetic. Everything we need in a drag queen. There should be more Vixen-types for the upcoming seasons.

67. Kenya Michaels (Season 4). Super fun, stylish, and contrary to popular opinion did a good job as a crazed Beyonce in Snatch Game.

68. Nina Bo’Nina Brown (Season 9). Nina had crazy potential but let her insecurities and demons completely wreck her on S9.

69. Derrick Barry (Season 8). “It’s Britney… bitch?” (question mark is there on purpose.)

70. Jiggy Caliente (Season 4). One of the most lovable queens from a season that was insanely dramatic. Also, the owner of the worst ensemble ever created on the show (we all know what that was).

71. Mariah (Season 3). Study Joan Crawford… last longer. Simple as that.

72. Farrah Moan (Season 9). Became more known for her whining, which was oddly endearing. Plus her epic showdown with Valentina during the reunion was legendary.

73. Coco Montrese (Season 5). Talented queen but didn’t really get a chance to shine as the entire season was focused on her rivalry with Alyssa.

74. Stacey Layne Matthews (Season 3). Her version of Mo'nique in Precious is still one of the best Snatch Game performances of all time.

75. Jaidynn Diore Fierce (Season 7). Criminally underrated.

76. Gia Gunn (Season 6). “How is she though?” and “ABSOLUTELYYYY” are forever embedded in my brain.

77. Blair St. Clair (Season 10). One of the sweetest queens to ever compete, with a sharp eye for fashion. Was eliminated too early, IMHO.

78. Morgan McMichaels (Season 2). Came out the gate a strong contender (won the first challenge) but faded shortly after that.

79th. Laganja Estranja (Season 6). Laganja is proof that creating an exaggerated character doesn't work for every person. 

80th. Robbie Turner (Season 8). Robbie’s shining moment was her Les Chicken Wing performance, but her acting abilities (something she claimed to be an expert at) faltered all over the place.

81st. Delta Work (Season 3). Delta’s insecurities and her blunt attitude towards “the boogers” was her downfall in season 3.

82. Sahara Davenport (Season 2). Sahara had a presence to her that read as extremely regal and poised. It’s something that many other queens wish they had but don’t. Rest in peace, queen.

83. Mayhem Miller (Season 10). I pegged Mayhem to go the distance early on, as she was already so well known outside of RPDR. It just didn’t happen for her, sadly, as her quieter persona hurt her in the end.

84. Mimi Imfurst (Season 3). Mimi would’ve gone the distance had she not lifted up India. Her personality was off putting but hey, at least she had some compared to the other girls that season.

85. Lineysha Sparx (Season 5). One of the most physically stunning queens to ever enter the werk room (both as a boy and a queen). And yes, I thought her rendition of Celia Cruz was hilarious for all the wrong reasons.

86Rebecca Glasscock (Season 1). It’s pretty much known by longtime RPDR fans that Rebecca should not have been in the top three, nor anywhere near the top that season. She got by on looks with little to back anything else up. But, regardless, she made it to the finale that season over someone way more deserving: Ongina.

87. Milan (Season 4). So underrated when it came to her lip sync abilities. She destroyed Madame, Kenya and almost Jiggly in her effort to win the season 4 crown. 

88. Mrs. Kasha Davis (Season 7). “There’s always time for a cocktail.” Should’ve been the one to come back instead of Trixie, but I understand why that didn’t happen.

89. April Carrion (Season 6). She got royally screwed in season 6. Sort of shocked she hasn’t been asked to do All Stars yet (she actually campaigned for it during the S6 reunion).

90. DiDa Ritz (Season 4). Love DiDa and her personality, but I struggle to still find out she made it to the top 5 in her season.

91. Serena Chacha (Season 5). She’s only this high on the list for the fact that she took on her entire cast in Untucked during the second episode and was delusional enough to believe she was in the right the entire time.

92. Tammie Brown (Season 1). Was the first queen to really get into it with Ru at one of the reunions. It took almost ten years for that to happen again. Also… “I don’t see you walking children in nature” and “Teleport us to Mars” is just… well, iconic.

93. Dusty Ray Bottoms (Season 10). Dusty had a great style and edge to her, and gave Monet a run for her money during the lip sync to Nicki Minaj’s “Pound the Alarm.”

94. Monica Beverly Hillz (Season 5). Monica was very brave to open up about being a transgender woman on the show. I wish she would’ve lasted longer but she seemed defeated the entire time.

95. Madame LaQueer (Season 4). Don’t wear green... ever… at least in front of Michelle Visage.

96. Jasmine Masters (Season 7). Jasmine’s most memorable moment was when Nina Bo’Nina Brown impersonated her on Snatch Game.

97. Mystique Summers Madison (Season 2). I’m not really keen on them doing another All Stars season, but Mystique would benefit from being on it given her amazing transformation over the past couple of years. Also... “I AM FROM CHICAGO!”

98. Jade Jolie (Season 5). You gotta give Jade this: she was able to read the house down for someone who was very reserved. We wouldn’t have the legendary “back rolls” comment from Alyssa Edwards if she didn’t say it originally.  

99. Vivacious (Season 6). Not sure if I should write Vivacious or Ornacia here.

100. Victoria Porkchop Parker (Season 1). The first queen to ever be eliminated on RPDR. I love how RuPaul finds a way to speak about her at every reunion, further solidifying her legendary status on this show.

101. Laila McQueen (Season 8). Such a cutie but got so screwed early on that season.

102. The Princess (Season 3). One of the few bald-headed queens (Sasha Velour, Ongina) from RPDR. Had a great aesthetic that would’ve been fun to watch had she made it further. Darn, those quiet personalities.

103. Nicole Paige Brooks (Season 2) … “from Atlanta, Georgia.”

104. Yuhua Hamasaki (Season 10). ANKH ANKH!

105. Akashia (Season 1). Arguably the best lip syncer in the show’s debut season. And let’s not forget her epic fall on the runway which she turned into something seriously fierce a second later.

106. Tempest DuJour (Season 7). I personally loved Tempest and her personality. However, she was sent home twice in the same season. Ouch.

107. Kimora Blac (Season 9). Adjective.

108. Kelly Mantle (Season 6). The judges WERE NOT feeling her bacon.

109. Jaymes Mansfield (Season 9). Super cute and quirky but was swallowed whole by the big personalities of season 9.

110. Sonique (Season 2). Just never seemed like she really wanted to be there.

111. Dax ExclamationPoint (Season 8). I liked Dax’s viewpoint as a cosplay sort of queen, but her attitude both episodes was really her downfall.

112. India Ferrah (Season 3). Sweet queen, but only remembered for being lifted up by Mimi Imfurst.

113. Charlie Hides (Season 9). Her lip sync had more excuses than actual footsteps taken during it.

114. Lashaun Beyond (Season 4). “Post Apo-po-lop-tic” (SP?)

115. Phoenix (Season 3). Her showdown with India Ferrah during the werk room entrance was so dramatic and over the top but amazing nonetheless.

116. Vivienne Pinay (Season 5). Overconfident fish.

117: Honey Mahogany (Season 5). Caftan.

118. Sasha Belle (Season 7). “I kind of misunderstood the assignment.”

119. Jade (Season 1). Fierce but got destroyed by Rebecca Glasscock in her lip sync. 

120. Magnolia Crawford (Season 6). Quite possibly the most negative person to ever be on RPDR.

121. Naysha Lopez (Season 8). The most pointless bring back ever.

122. Kalorie Karbdashian Williams (Season 10). She knew how to make that ass jiggle. I’ll give her that.

123. Kandy Ho (Season 7). I struggle to find anything that she did good outside of her several lip syncs that she was in (which were great).

124: Alisa Summers (Season 4). Her one hilarious point from season 4 was mentioning how she could’ve turned it out in the first lip sync had she worn sneakers like Jiggly Caliente did.

125: Venus D'Lite (Season 3). Her attitude during the one episode she was there was really off putting, and she made the lip sync against Shangela really uncomfortable to watch.

126: Penny Tration (Season 5). You should be lucky you even made it onto this list when the one who sent you home was Serena Chacha.

          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.”

From www.foxnews.com:

A Texas mother said she didn’t think twice about shooting a would-be carjacker when the man jumped into her vehicle at a Dallas gas station while her two sons were in the backseat.

Michelle Booker-Hicks was at the Shell station along Interstate 35 around 10 p.m. Wednesday when Ricky Wright, 36, attempted to steal her vehicle while she was paying her gas bill, police said. Booker-Hicks told FOX4 Dallas her two sons, ages 2 and 4, were sitting in the backseat at the time.

“I proceeded to jump in my backseat and told the gentleman to stop, to get out the car. He would not get out of the car. He turned around and looked at me. I reached over the armrest to get my glove compartment and that’s when I fired at him once I got the gun from my glove compartment,” Booker-Hicks recalled to the news station.

The hammer attack on a 16-year-old girl at a Near North Side McDonald's was captured on cell phone video by another patron.

A series of video clips show the altercation at the McDonald's at North State Street and West Chicago Avenue Monday night. The man who filmed them, who asked to have his name withheld, was there with his girlfriend at the time. He pulled out his cell phone and recorded the moments after the confrontation began.

"I was kind of lost initially, kind of blacked out once everything started happening," he said.

Hannah Walker, 36, is facing a misdemeanor battery charge. She is seen in the video swinging a hammer at 16-year-old Jasmine Ware, hitting her in the face.

"The only one who seemed to be getting in the middle of it was a security guard," the witness said.

Ware said the woman started fighting her and her friends about their place in line.

Police Chief Jim Cervera is calling on Congress to pass stricter gun laws like universal background checks.

"All the recommendations that we're asking for are totally reasonable," Cervera said in an interview on Friday.

Cervera recently returned from a meeting with other police chiefs from around the country. He's a board member of the Major Cities Chiefs Association. During the meeting, the group updated its firearms violence policy to include calling for more background checks, banning high capacity magazines, and reinstating the assault weapons ban.

"I'm very passionate about it because I've seen the carnage weapons cause on the street and I see how many weapons that my officers are taking from bad guys every day," he said.

From www.ammoland.com:

The deadline to register, aka comply, with California's “bullet button assault weapons” registration is this Saturday, June 30, 2018 – see the alert below from GOC.

Also, there’s some interesting food for thought with how the gun industry is being hung out to dry by corporate America. What’s even more interesting, though, is that Americans have bought more guns in the past two months than even our military has on hand. According to the FBI, May was a solid month in gun sales, with over two million background checks being run according to the FBI.

Plus, it’s always good to keep track of anti-gun Leftist Michael Bloomberg, who has pledged to spend $80 million – that’s $80 MILLION, folks – in an attempt to sway the election in November.

That means on average, he’s going to spend roughly $4.2 million anti-gun dollars a week. If this isn’t a direct assault on our rights, then what is? Make sure you are armed, informed and involved this election cycle. Our 2nd amendment rights depend on it!

Talk about being a good neighbor.

A pregnant pizza driver was being beaten with a rifle by two teens in southwest Atlanta on Wednesday night when a nearby resident, who owned a gun, saw the incident and sprang into action, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

Dennis Madaris told the station he pulled out his weapon and told the suspects, “Drop the gun or I’ll drop you,” according to the station.

That’s when Madaris said the teens ditched the weapon and took off running.

A 16-year-old boy and girl were later arrested in connection with the attack. They were charged with assault, possession of a firearm and attempt to commit robbery, the station reported.

The pregnant woman suffered minor injuries and was taken to a hospital as a precaution.

From www.breitbart.com:

The California DOJ is using a countdown clock to warn residents they have less than a week to register “bullet button assault weapons.”

“Bullet buttons” are simple mechanisms which a gun owner can depress using a tool–or the tip of a bullet–in order to achieve the release of an empty magazine. The empty mag can thereby be replaced with a full one. But California Democrats are working hard to eliminate detachable magazines, thus the ban on “bullet button assault weapons.”

Breitbart News reported the Gov. Jerry Brown (D) signed the ban on “bullet buttons” on July 1, 2016, and the effective date of that law is now approaching.

From www.brownells.com:

In the 1920s and 1930s, Bob Brownell was a middle-America businessman who owned and managed a gas station and sandwich shop in his small hometown, Montezuma, Iowa. In his free time, Bob was a devoted shooter and outdoorsman who enjoyed repairing and customizing firearms. He started by working on his own guns, but news of his talent spread quickly and he soon began accepting jobs from friends. By 1938, his gunsmithing hobby was making profits, so Bob added part-time gunsmith to his list of businesses.

As the gunsmithing business continued to grow, so too did Bob's need for good quality tools. He searched the few gun supply catalogs available at the time, but came to the conclusion that some of the most necessary tools just couldn't be purchased anywhere. When he did find tools and products that worked, he bought extras to sell to fellow gunsmiths who were also having difficulties finding supplies.

From www.brownells.com:

In the 1920s and 1930s, Bob Brownell was a middle-America businessman who owned and managed a gas station and sandwich shop in his small hometown, Montezuma, Iowa. In his free time, Bob was a devoted shooter and outdoorsman who enjoyed repairing and customizing firearms. He started by working on his own guns, but news of his talent spread quickly and he soon began accepting jobs from friends. By 1938, his gunsmithing hobby was making profits, so Bob added part-time gunsmith to his list of businesses.

As the gunsmithing business continued to grow, so too did Bob's need for good quality tools. He searched the few gun supply catalogs available at the time, but came to the conclusion that some of the most necessary tools just couldn't be purchased anywhere. When he did find tools and products that worked, he bought extras to sell to fellow gunsmiths who were also having difficulties finding supplies.

A man and his daughter are recovering from a coyote attack.

The Davie County Sheriff says it happened on East Depot Street around 3:15 p.m. on Saturday, May 19.

The man said his 7-year-old daughter was playing on a swing in their backyard when he heard something, ran outside and saw what he thought was a coyote attacking the girl. The dad says he pulled the coyote off of her and it ran off.

The dad received stitches around his eye and the girl has a bite mark and stitches on her thigh.

This is the second coyote attack reported in Davie County this year. In March, a 9-year-old girl was attacked by a coyote at her home in Advance.

From chicagocitywire.com:

An armed security guard associated with staunch anti-gun and nationally known social activist, Father Michael Pfleger, was arrested on May 27 outside St. Sabina’s Roman Catholic Church on the South Side where Pfleger is a senior pastor.

The Chicago Police (CPD) charged Henry Eugene Hale, 35, with possessing a firearm without a valid Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) card. He was released on $150 bond.

A spokesperson for the CPD told Chicago City Wire that police officers approached Hale at the church, which is at 1200 W. 78th Place, when “they saw him holding a firearm.”

Records with the Illinois Department of Financial & Professional Regulation show that Hale’s FOID card expired in December 2017. Records also show that he is certified to work in Illinois as a security guard, and that he was once disciplined but it doesn’t explain why.

A May 29 blog post on “Second City Cop” referred to Hale as “Pfleger’s security” and said that “Pfleger and his minions called 006th dist (sic) nonstop to try to get the guy out of arrest.”

From www.mysuncoast.com:

The City of Sarasota says it wants to make streets and local families as safe as possible this summer.

Gun owners can give the firearms they no longer want or need right to Sarasota P.D. instead of making it available on the resale market.

Phillip Carey served in the British Royal Navy early in his life, now the 20-year resident is serving the City of Sarasota, by giving away his military grade rifle. City Manager Tom Barwin says it's something he wanted to do.

"Concerned about what's happening in our schools and thinking a lot about the Parkland aftermath, having a child in school himself said only bad things can happen with this military grade weapon that I own."

It's an act that has now led to the creation of a program called "Done with the Gun". Barwin says it's a collaboration between the city and Sarasota Police where anyone can relinquish a firearm they no longer need. The rifle donated by Carey will be used by the Police SWAT team, but most of the guns collected will be melted down. Barwin says, it's just a step in the right direction.

Only people 21 and older would be able to buy rifles and shotguns under a bill just passed by the California Senate.

The Senate on Tuesday approved the measure by Democratic Sen. Anthony Portantino of La Canada Flintridge, sending it to the Assembly on a 23-10 vote.

The measure would also ban people from buying more than one rifle or shotgun each month. These limits currently only apply to handguns.

Republican Sen. Jim Nielsen of Gerber says California should instead target criminal gangs and those with mental disabilities whom he said will obtain the guns no matter the legal limits.

Walmart and Dick's Sporting Goods previously announced age limits on gun sales.

It is not a rhetorical question. What is a gun? What does it mean for a free man to possess a gun? There are many reasons to own firearms, but only one reason will preserve the possession of a gun as an inalienable right.

Jarrad reminds you that Hillsdale College has a US Constitution course available for every American. He even put the direct link in the show notes for you.

During our SOTG Homeroom from Crossbreed Holsters, we will consider the idea of “my gunfight” versus being in “a gunfight”. There is an absolute difference in the two and how you prepare for them.

The U.S. Constitution is the key to securing liberty for all Americans -- yet very few know exactly what it says, and what freedoms it protects. Hillsdale College is dedicating this year to educating millions of Americans about this critical document. That's why the College is offering its most popular course, "Constitution 101" for free, when you sign up now.

Hillsdale's course, Constitution 101: The Meaning and History of the Constitution, features the same professors who teach this course on Hillsdale College's campus. Hillsdale is one of the only colleges in America -- outside of the military academies -- that requires every student to take a course on the Constitution to graduate.

The course is delivered via email, with one lesson per week for 10 weeks. Each lesson features lively teaching and discussion boards, suggested readings, weekly quizzes, and more.

A 5-year-old Colorado girl is in good condition after she was attacked by a black bear outside her home.

The attack happened early Sunday near Grand Junction, about 240 miles west of Denver.

The girl's mother told state wildlife officers that her daughter went outside around 2:30 a.m. to investigate noises she thought might be coming from her dog. The mother said she then heard screaming and went out to find her daughter being dragged by a large black bear. She says the bear dropped the girl after she began screaming at the animal.

“She came out … she yelled at the animal,” Colorado Parks and Wildlife spokesman Mike Porras said. “She screamed at it, and by doing so, she probably saved her little girl’s life.”

SOURCES

From www.chicagotribune.com:

A school resource police officer is being lauded as a hero for intervening when a former student at Dixon High School opened fire Wednesday morning near the school gym where students were gathered for a graduation rehearsal, authorities said.

The officer, identified by the city as 15-year department veteran Mark Dallas, shot and injured the gunman after the suspect fired at the officer while trying to flee, police said.

The suspect, identified as 19-year-old former student Matthew A. Milby, was taken into custody, and no one else was injured in the gunfire exchange, authorities said.

Late Wednesday, officials confirmed that they have charged Milby with felony aggravated discharge of a weapon and set his bond at $2 million. Illinois State Police said the investigation continues and more charges could be forthcoming.

Officials with the city, which is about 100 miles west of Chicago, said the suspect was being treated at a hospital for injuries that were not considered life-threatening and was under 24-hour police watch.

Authorities said the incident began about 8 a.m. when the suspect “fired several shots” near the gym. Dallas, who has worked as a school resource officer at Dixon High for five years, rushed to the area. He confronted the suspect, who then fled but, with the officer in pursuit, fired several shots at Dallas but did not strike him, police Chief Steven Howell said.

From chicago.suntimes.com:

Some Illinois lawmakers want to give extra money to schools that replace armed security officers with unarmed social workers and behavior therapists, an approach to safety that’s far different than a national push to add police or arm teachers following a mass shooting at a Florida high school.

Rep. Emanuel “Chris” Welch, a Hillside Democrat, said he proposed the plan after hearing from advocates who argue that investing in mental health resources is the best way of treating the epidemic of violence.

His plan, which is backed by 16 other Democrats in the House, would allow schools to apply to an optional grant if they promise to reallocate funding for school-based law enforcement to mental health services, including social workers or other practices “designed to promote school safety and healthy environments.”

But the measure could be a tough sell, especially amid a widespread effort to employ more of what’s known as school resource officers — fully armed law enforcement officers often paid for by schools.

As of early April, 200 bills or resolutions have been introduced in 39 states regarding school safety, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. More than half of these measures were introduced following the events in Parkland, Florida. Thirty-four bills in 19 states address regulations and training for school resource officers.

New Haven police were called to a school Thursday afternoon after a child made a toy gun out of Legos and was pointing it at others.

School officials said it happened at the Jepson Magnet School, which has students in grades pre-kindergarten through eighth.

A school spokesperson said this is an example of schools "proactively" intervening, and discouraging concerning behavior.

From fox61.com:

School officials said a child built a toy gun out of Lego at the Jepsen Magnet School in New Haven Thursday.

School administrators called police to the school after the child made the gun and started pointing it at the other kids.

Will Clark, COO of New Haven Public Schools released the following statement:

“School leaders and local police partners were able to investigate and resolve the issue internally with use of restorative practices. Appropriate steps were taken at the school level to insure the safety of all students and to impress upon the students the seriousness of engaging in positive peer interactions while avoiding conduct that may pose risk or concern to others. All children need to feel safe and secure within the learning environment and we all have a role to play to make that happen.”

From www.foxnews.com:

A New Jersey high school came under fire Friday after it allegedly suspended two students over a gun photo taken during a family visit to a shooting range.

News of the unnamed students' suspension circulated through a Lacey Township Facebook group, according to NJ.com.

Amanda Buron, a Lacey resident and family friend of one of the suspended students said one of the photos shared on SnapChat featured four rifles, magazines, and a gun duffel with the caption "fun day at the range," NJ.com reported.

Buron said the two students received a five-day in-school suspension after the picture drew the attention of Lacey Township High School officials, who argued that it violated the school’s policy on weapons possession.

From www.dailywire.com:

On Friday, Parkland survivor Kyle Kashuv went to the gun range to learn to fire a gun for the first time, alongside his father. He tweeted this:

It was great learning about our inalienable right of #2A and how to properly use a gun. This was my first time ever touching a gun and it made me appreciate the #Constitution even more. My instructor was very informative; I learnt a lot. #2A is important and we need 2 preserve 2A pic.twitter.com/4rcOZbpl88

[More Tweets]

According to Kyle, “My dad was there and I shot with an AR-15. After, I posted a few pictures and videos.”

Kashuv was quickly called out for visiting a gun range and posting about it by a variety of other students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. But that wasn’t the end of the story. When Kyle went to school today, his principal informed him that other students had been upset by his posts, but that he hadn’t done anything wrong...

From www.lifesitenews.com:

ORANGE COUNTY, California, April 19, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – California is about to implement new abortion- and homosexualty-promoting sex education lessons, and one school district has told parents they have no choice but to expose their children to them.

California enacted the California Healthy Youth Act in 2015, but only now are its controversial provisions starting to take effect in classrooms. Under the auspices of health, the law says it will equip students to develop “healthy attitudes” on “gender [and] sexual orientation,” among other things. It also says it will inform students about the “effectiveness and safety of all FDA-approved contraceptive methods,” and facilitate “objective discussion” about “parenting, adoption, and abortion.”

RedState contributor Kira Davis, a resident of Orange County, California, warns that among the teaching materials approved for use under this law are a study guide for the transgender children’s book I Am Jazz, as well as a “sexual health toolkit.”

APRIL 18 2018 - Adolf Hitler and his Nazi party are famous for many things. Among them, the slaughter of innocent Jews, gun reform, public school systems, and Adolf’s foray into triggering choices in facial hair. But Hitler also liked to warm his hands over the flames of burning books. The only knowledge Hitler and his brown-shirted minions wanted the people to have had to be cleared by the government first. Gotta protect the people from scary books containing knowledge, facts, stories, and the dreaded verboten opinions of others. Which is my segue into this story: California leftists want to ban the sale of certain books. Specifically, books which run counter to the LGBT narrative.

As a public service to New York slaves, we wanted to remind you that it is once again time to beg permission from His Majesty the King. New York gun owners are required to “re-certify” with the state or face subsequent penalties.

During our Quiet Time Moment from SilencerShop.com Professor Paul will consider a different form of personal quiet time than we have previously. Your father and grandfather did it and we think you should as well.

Also, our SWAT Fuel Warrior of the Week has a question about “the scan” or “looking around” on the training range. Is this valuable or just tactical fashion?

From wnyt.com/news:

For the first time in five years, gun owners in New York have to re-certify their assault rifles under the Safe Act. It's no surprise that some people aren't happy about it.

Though re-certifying is free and can be done online from the comfort of your own home, gun rights advocates are wondering why it's necessary at all.

"The purpose of it is to just know that those gun owners still haven't broken any laws, they're still the law abiding citizens that they are," Regional Coordinator for New Yorkers Against Gun Violence Pat Tuz said.

Some disagree:

"The imposition of these restrictions on lawful gun owners is doing nothing to make the people of New York State safer," Executive Director of New York State Rifle & Pistol Association Tom King said.

Advocates also disagree over how effective recertification is in reducing instances of gun violence.

When writing textbooks about slavery, which words best reflect its cold, hard reality? Some historians are dropping the word "slave" in favor of terms like "enslaved person" and "captive," arguing that these terms are more accurate. And raising a bilingual child is tough enough, but what about teaching them three languages? It's an ambitious goal, but there's help if you want to try. Plus, a class of sixth-graders wonders about the playful vocabulary of The Lord of the Rings. Where did Tolkien come up with this stuff? Also, funny school mascots, grawlixes, that melon's busted, attercop, Tomnoddy, purgolders, and dolly vs. trolley vs. hand truck.

FULL DETAILS

In an earlier episode, we discussed funny school mascot names. Listeners wrote in with more, including the Belfry Bats (the high school mascot of Belfry, Montana) and the Macon Whoopie hockey team, from Macon, Georgia.

A Fort Worth, Texas, couple disagrees about how to pronounce the word gymnast, but both JIM-nist and the more evenly stressed JIM-NAST are fine.

A musician from Youngstown, Ohio, is designing an album cover for his band's latest release. He wants to use a grawlix, one of those strings of punctuation marks that substitute for profanity. "Beetle Bailey" cartoonist Mort Walker coined the term, but is there a grammar of grawlixes?

Quiz Guy John Chaneski has a puzzle about words and phrases that people have tried to trademark, including a two-word phrase indicating that someone's employment has been terminated, which a certain presidential candidate tried unsuccessfully to claim as his own.

He's a native English speaker who's fluent in Spanish. She grew up in Cameroon speaking French. They're planning a family, and hoping to raise their children to speak all three. What are the best strategies for teaching children to speak more than two languages? The Multilingual Children's Association offers helpful tips.

Offbeat mascot names from Montana include the Powell County Wardens (so named because the high school is in the same county as the Montana State Prison), and the Missoula Loyola Sacred Heart Breakers.

Growing up in Jamaica, a woman used to hear her fashion-designer mother invoke this phrase to indicate that something was good enough, even if it was flawed: A man on a galloping horse wouldn't see it. Variations include it'll never be seen on a galloping horse and a blind man on a galloping horse wouldn't see it. The idea is that the listener to relax and take the long view. The expression has a long history in Ireland and England, and the decades of Irish influence in Jamaica may also account for her mother's having heard it.

The country of Cameroon is so named because a 15th-century Portuguese explorer was so struck by the abundance of shrimp in a local river, he dubbed it Rio dos Camaroes, or "river of shrimp."

The organization Historic Hudson Valley describes the African-American celebration of Pinkster in an exemplary way. It avoids the use of the word slave and instead uses terms such as enslaved people, enslaved Africans, and captives. It's a subtle yet powerful means of affirming that slavery is not an inherent condition, but rather one imposed from outside.

A sixth-grade teacher from San Antonio, Texas, says he and his students are reading The Lord of the Rings. They're curious about the words attercop, which means "spider" (and a relative of the word cobweb) and Tomnoddy, which means "fool." Grant recommends the book The Ring of Words, as well as these online resources: Why Did Tolkien Use Archaic Language? and A Tolkien English Glossary.

If you're in the Ozarks, you might hear the expression that means the same as water under the bridge or spilled milk: that melon's busted. The idea in all three cases is that something irrevocable has happened, and there's no going back.

A listener from Abilene, Texas, recounts the incredulous reaction he got when he was in England and asked some burly fellows for a dolly, meaning a wheeled conveyance for moving heavy loads. He asked for a two-wheeler, then a hand truck, and finally learned that what they were expecting him to ask for a trolley.

Madison East High School in Madison, Wisconsin, is the proud home of the Purgolders. That school mascot resembles a golden puma in purple attire, with a portmanteau name that combines those two colors.

This episode is hosted by Martha Barnette and Grant Barrett.

          Gung Ho - 5 March 2018      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The stories behind symbols and expressions around the world. The peace symbol popular during 1960's antiwar demonstrations had been around for decades. It originated in the antinuclear movement in the UK. Also, why do we say someone who's enthusiastic is all "gung ho"? The term derives from Chinese words meaning "work together." It was popularized by a Marine officer who admired the can-do spirit of Chinese industrial collectives. Plus, a tasty spin on stuffed foccacia that originated in eastern Sicily and is now a popular menu item in Omaha, Nebraska. Also: curling parents, sharking, ribey, a great book for young readers, and man lettuce.

FULL DETAILS

In English-speaking countries, overprotective Moms and Dads are called helicopter parents for the way they hover and meddle in their children's lives. In Denmark, they're called curling foraeldre, or curling parents, alluding to the sport of curling and frantic efforts to sweep away all obstacles in their offspring's path.  

A man in Orlando, Florida, asks if there's a word for slowly circling a parking lot in search of a space for your car. Slang terms for this practice include sharking and sharking for parking, and sometimes such drivers are jokingly called vultures.

Following up on our conversation about the need for a collective noun for librarians, a Ranchester, Wyoming, man suggests a Marian of librarians, a nod to The Music Man. And a woman in Bennington, Vermont, suggests that although many people are likely to propose a hush of librarians, she thinks a far more appropriate term would be a riot of librarians.

A Chicago, Illinois, man says his Appalachian relatives describe a thin or gaunt person as ribey. This adjective probably derives from the Scots term ribe, meaning a tall, scraggly plant and by extension a tall, thin person.

The low, wheeled device that auto mechanics use to slide under a car is called a creeper.

After noting how similar the word genre sounds to his own first name, Quiz Guy John Chaneski crafted a quiz that involves replacing the letters gen- with John- to form an entirely new word. For example, he says, from now on when you talk about a person's role in society as a man or a woman, as opposed to their biological sex, you'll be talking about not gender, but ...?

A Huntsville, Alabama, man asks: What's the origin of the peace symbol? A good resource on this topic is Peace: The Biography of a Symbol, by Ken Kolsbun.

In cycling slang, on the rivet refers to putting out maximum effort, and derives from the way cyclists lean all the way forward on the hard bicycle seat, which traditionally has a flat rivet in the very front.

An Omaha, Nebraska, woman wonders about an Italian food that's like a stuffed, pizza-size calzone stuffed with potatoes and spinach, or meat, or broccoli. She's seen it spelled several ways, including goodierooni, goudarooni, and cudaruni. The original version, cudduruni, comes from Sicily and is found in Sicilian dictionaries as far back as the 16th century.

A Mandarin Chinese speaker is curious about the origin of gung ho, referring to great enthusiasm. It derives from an anglicized Chinese expression, kung-ho, meaning "work together," which was adapted and popularized by Marine officer Evans Fordyce Carlson as gung ho.

Grant recommends a book for young readers by Rita Williams-Garcia. It's called One Crazy Summer, and it's about three girls who travel to Oakland, California, in 1968 to meet the mother who abandoned them.

The parent of a highschooler in Madison, Wisconsin, says that at the beginning of each semester, when her daughter's classmates introduce themselves and their preferred pronouns, gender-neutral students often say their pronouns are they and their. Linguist Denis Baron has compiled an extensive list of other epicene pronouns. Although they and their may be applied to an individual, in that case, it's best to use plural verb.

Texas journalist Molly Ivins delighted in collecting colorful expressions from state legislators, including Who put Tabasco sauce in his oatmeal?, said of a suddenly invigorated colleague.

A Houston, Texas, woman asks: Why are there so many different dictionaries?

What's man lettuce? A Tallahassee, Florida, listener uses that term for beard. If you have a beard you might be said said to be barbigerous. If you get it trimmed, you've had a pogonotomy.  

This episode is hosted by Martha Barnette and Grant Barrett, and produced by Stefanie Levine.

          When Jessica Chastain decided to speak up      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Jessica Chastain is one of Hollywood’s hardest working stars, with the upcoming X-MEN: DARK PHOENIX, the IT sequel and not one but two biopics on the horizon, first as ‘Stand By Your Man’ country singer Tammy Wynette and then three-time Oscar winner, the luminous Ingrid Bergman of CASABLANCA, GASLIGHT, BELLS OF ST. MARY’S, MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS and AUTUMN SONATA.  But lately she’s taken on a new, some might say controversial role as an outspoken social critic.  During an interview at Manhattan’s Crosby Street Hotel, an upbeat, exuberant Chastain spoke about that, the possibility of directing and a recent Oscar winner who made every day on the WOMAN WALKS AHEAD set something special.

Q: You’ve become passionately vocal about issues recently.  When did that start?  When did you feel you had to speak up?

JESSICA CHASTAIN: I don’t know why I’m so outspoken about things. I do know that, thinking back on it, I think it started after ZERO DARK THIRTY when I started speaking up and people were going, ‘Shhh. Just act.’ [laughs] Because I’d just spent months playing this woman who was constantly discriminated against or belittled because of her gender.  So I’m playing this woman in a true story and the movie comes out and I’m watching Katherine Bigelow being treated differently than male directors I’d worked with.  And I found it incredibly sexist. That was the first time I really started -- when I saw something that was kind of messed up I would start saying it.  And in the beginning, people would look at me because I wasn’t playing the role I was supposed to be playing.  They tried to fabricate a feud between Jennifer Lawrence and myself during the Oscars. I was, ‘Not true’ and completely spoke out against it. But I realized I had the power to go against a system that for 30 years had put women in one box and pitted them against each other. I have the power to say: I’m not allowing that to happen.  It just really freaked me out. So maybe that’s when it started.  But I’m not interested in being a lecturer, I’m more interested in listening. So, talking to someone and then hearing what their experiences are and then amplifying it. I’m not using my voice; I’m saying, ‘This is what happened to Katherine Bigelow – and it’s gotta stop!’

 

Q: Did you get terrible feedback?

JC:  In the beginning I did, for sure.  Even in October last year when everything started to go down [about Harvey Weinstein and #MeToo] and I was very vocal about amplifying the voices of the survivors, some people that I respect told me to be careful.  And be quiet. I think now we’ve gotten to where everyone is starting to examine the situation in themselves. 

 

Q: Have you any interest in directing?

JC: I don’t know… There was something I was going to direct actually. I was very passionate about it and I thought I could tell a great story with it.  But I must say that during the negotiations I asked for a producer -- because they wanted me to direct and act in it.  And they wouldn’t allow me that, so I said, ‘Okay I’m not going to do it.’ Because a lot of female filmmakers I’ve noticed, they’re not given a producer, an ally, somebody to bounce things off. Especially if you’re acting uou need someone you can trust on the other side. A lot of women I talked to, they were never given that, where men were. I just thought, I’m not going to start on the wrong note. So I was sad to let it got but I let it go.

 

Q: You may yet direct in the future then?

JC:  If I’m going to direct, it’s something that has to hit me. And that script hit me extremely strongly that this was a story I wanted to tell. It would have to be something like that. 

 

Q: Can you talk about Sam Rockwell who is so good in WOMAN WALKS AHEAD in a role as a soldier who could have been a one-dimensional bad guy but is much more complex?

JC: I’ve always respected Sam but he surprised me in a big way. He showed up [in New Mexico for the 8 week shoot] and he was really there to explore and figure out the character and discover new things and he worked his butt off.  He would be with Michael [Greyeyes who plays Sitting Bull] on weekends about [speaking] the Lakota. He was so freaked out about that scene at the end.  And every time we were doing a scene, Sam would – and this is what I admire so much -- play the unexpected.  Something that’s off the page a little bit but lifts the page at the same time. He’s almost super generous. Some people can suck all the energy on a set and you’re like, ‘Let’s just get thru the day.’ [laughs] But Sam is someone who brings the energy up and everyone works harder, is kinder and inspired by his kindness. You get nervous with someone who’s been in the industry so long but he was heaven.

 

 

 

HIDDEN: Unsettling, disturbing Welsh crime drama

Following the hit BBC One Wales miniseries KEEPING THE FAITH (available July 24 on Blu-ray and DVD 3 disc, 8 episode sets), HIDDEN (AcornTV, beginning Monday, July 16) is a more than worthy companion.  It too is partially in Welsh with English subtitles and also benefits from the spectacular natural beauty of Wales’s valleys and forests. Unlike Eve Myles’ incredulous housewife in KEEPING THE FAITH, HIDDEN’s female protagonist DCI Cady John (Sian Reese-Williams) is a divorced detective returned to her roots to cope with her elderly dad, an ex-cop whose deteriorating health is prompting a family crisis with debates on how best to handle his care.  Then comes a disturbing case involving a murdered, long missing, young girl with evidence she was held captive since 2011 .  When one young woman is attacked and another girl goes missing, time becomes an additional pressure if several lives are to be saved as a search begins in the nearby mountains. HIDDEN is genuinely creepy with a enveloping sense of dread as we see a disturbed, mother-dominated loner make his moves.

 

 

NEW DVDs:

The unstoppable James Franco who triumphed with his brilliant Oscar-nominated biopic THE DISASTER ARTIST now stars in and co-directs (with Bruce Thierry Cheung) FUTURE WORLD (Blu-ray + Digital, Lionsgate, R). Yes, another post-apocalyptic fantasy with echoes of MAD MAX and DUNEFUTURE WORLD is an arid zone without water and gasoline.  Lucy Liu’s sick Queen needs medicine, so a Prince leaves the safety of his shelter in search of a life saver. Along the way is Franco’s Warlord accompanied by his Robot (Suki Waterhouse). As the hardy band trek thru desperate, desolate wastelands, Milla Jovovich (recently seen as Rob Reiner’s wife in SHOCK AND AWE) and Snoop Dogg join the party.  The extras include a Franco interview and behind the scenes featurette.

 

A film essay narrated by the internationally known German actor Udo Kier (ANDY WARHOL’S DRACULA, MY OWN PRIVATE IDAHO, DOWNSIZING), HITLER’S HOLLYWOOD (DVD, Kino Lorber, Unrated) uses clips from the Third Reich’s movies, a well-oiled propaganda machine that embraced melodrama, costume epics, romances and war films to convince German moviegoers that the Nazi way was the only way.  If Jean-Luc Godard pronounced every film a political statement, HITLER’S HOLLYWOOD proves it. The Nazi films from 1933-45 were under the personal supervision of Minister of Propaganda Josef Goebbels.  Facts were bent or destroyed to convey their screeds, incendiary statements and images about Jews or Russians. A constant theme appealed to the noble sentiment of sacrificing one’s life for the regime. Ultimately, the filmmaker notes, Nazi films could be said to all be about … Death.

 

Billy Wilder’s IRMA LA DOUCE (Blu-ray, Kino Lorber Classics, Unrated) stands as the brilliant writer-director’s last hit movie.  This 1963 adaptation of a stage musical saw Wilder drop its musical elements to present a farcical romantic comedy that reteamed his terrific twosome from his 1960 Oscar-winning THE APARTMENT: Shirley MacLaine as Sweet Irma, a happy hooker, and Jack Lemmon as uptight Parisian cop Nestor who loves Irma so much he pretends to be a Lord who demands that he be her only client.  Fine except that Irma falls in love with the Lord, not Nestor.  What’s Nestor to do?  With its sensational stars, legendary filmmaker and naughty but nice plotting, IRMA LA DOUCE triumphed, adding to its box-office fortunes with Oscar nominations for Best Actress MacLaine (she wouldn’t win until TERMS OF ENDEARMENT), Joseph LaShelle’s color cinematography and Andre Previn’s score (the film’s sole Academy Award winner).  Why Wilder, whose classics make a laundry list of some of the greatest movies ever made – DOUBLE INDEMNITY, THE LONG WEEKEND, SUNSET BOULEVARD, SOME LIKE IT HOT, A FOREIGN AFFAIR, SABRINA, STALAG 17 – never was able to connect with a mass audience again is heartbreaking.  His mix of cynicism, romance and sophistication put Wilder on top for 20 years -- and then he was not.  The bonus here is not one but two audio commentaries:  First, HOW DID LUBITSCH DO IT? author Joseph McBride, and then film historian Kat Ellinger. 

 

Film Noir is enjoying a renaissance, a rediscovered category of influential cinema. These postwar movies, often B pictures at major studios or shoestring productions from Hollywood’s ‘Poverty Row,’ reflected the disillusionment following the greatest war the world had ever seen, a war that introduced the Atomic Age.  I WALK ALONE (Blu-ray, Kino Lorber Classics, Unrated) from 1947 is now available on Blu-ray in a brand new HD master from the 35 mm safety dupe stored in the Paramount Pictures Archives.  That means this is the best version of Byron Haskins’ gangster classic you’ll ever see.  Two noir icons, Lisabeth Scott and Burt Lancaster, are teamed here alongside Kirk Douglas, pro footballer turned wrestler turned actor Mike Mazurki and menacing Marc Lawrence. I WALK ALONE follows Lancaster’s Frankie Madison, just released from a 14 year stretch behind bars and ready to claim the half share of the swank nightclub Douglas’ Dink Turner has created.  Frankie feels Dink owes him for taking the rap.  Dink has another, perhaps deadly perspective. Producer Hal Wallis gives this noir an impeccable sheen, burnished by the memorable performances of Lancaster as a guy losing his center and Douglas as the wily, serpentine, super-confident manipulator. Throughout her career Lisabeth Scott battled accusations that she couldn’t, well, act. Yes, she looks iconic and in her defense could anyone have made sense of this ridiculous role as the woman who instantly is caught between the massive masculinity of her two rivals?  There’s a bonus audio commentary from film historian Troy Howarth.

          Oilily 7.5 wide or 8 Kiwi Green Suede Riding Boots Rare Color Size 38 Vintage Boho Bohemian Gypsy Artsy Artistic 80's Made in Italy by BackThennishVintage      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

165.00 USD

Made in Italy.
Oilily women’s size 38 (fit like a 7.5 D) bohemian appliqué suede boots in *rare* Kiwi green.
They're so much fun! Pre-owned, sweet layered flowers of brown turquoise and pink on the sides, full length zipper, lovely deep kiwi green printed leather lining and a clean leather footbed with the Oilily logo at the bottom.
I do believe Oilily has discontinued their line of women's footwear.
Back in the 80's and 90's this was my favorite place to shop (only when they had sales, as I could never afford their stuff otherwise! ) Who remembers the Oilily store in upper Manhattan on Madison? I'm saddened to learn they've closed all their New York stores.

There's a couple of light stains on the right vamp, there are fade lines going up the center in the front and the back of both boots and some top toe scuffing.
The soles have very little wear. I mean really like no heel wear.
Some wear on the ball of foot and that's about all.

Kiwi green suede that was hard to photograph.
That color seemed to change from one location to the next.
I want you to see their color in relation to everyday backgrounds so you'll know what to expect when you get them.

Feel comfortable as heck especially if you're a 7.5 wide.
I have wide hobbit feet and wear a US 7.5 yet these boots fit great with regular trouser socks.
Marked 38 (8US), and probably true to size, but a 7.5 wide is a match.
Refer to measurements below and the chart for a sure fit.
Use zoom feature to see all photos close up.

If you don't know how boots will fit you, please compare the measurements below to a similar pair of boots you already have for a sure fit. Look at the last photo for instruction.
By following my measurements and placing your own boot 'heel against the wall', you will get the right numbers to make your comparison.
Your own boots MUST have the SAME HEEL height
and if the numbers match, these will fit you.
It's how I buy all my pre-owned boots online.

Boot measurements as follows:
With heel up against the wall, heel to toe measurement 10 3/4".
Bottom sole width 4"
Height of boot 14 1/2"
Stacked heel 1 5/8"
1/4" thick sole
8” vamp (across the widest part of the top of your foot)
Calf opening 6 7/8” measured flat across.

NOTE: I buy a lot of my favorite boots online and by following the rule of measuring boots, I am rarely disappointed when I open my package.
So do your homework. Boots are not returnable.

Lesson 19
 
Progressive Era Amendments
            16th Amendment: Income Tax
 
Income Tax is a direct tax. The Founding Fathers prohibited direct taxes in Article I, Section 9, Clause 4 of the United States Constitution.
The concept of an income tax emerged during the American Civil War as a means of assisting in paying for the Union war effort. In 1861, Congress drew up a bill to tax personal and corporate incomes. This first income tax measure in the United States called for a 3% tax on incomes over $800. The bill quickly passed in both the House and the Senate, but it was never put into operation.
In 1862, Abraham Lincoln signed a bill that imposed a 3% tax on incomes between $600 and $10,000 and a 5% tax on higher incomes. The bill was amended in 1864 to levy heavier taxation on higher incomes. The 1862 income tax law was repealed in 1872 and was declared to be unconstitutional, in violation of Article I, Section 9, Clause 4 of the United States Constitution.
Progressivism was on the rise in the United States around the turn of the 20th Century. Americans were concerned about the large national debt that remained with the United States as a result of the Spanish-American War, and the growing social inequality between the rich and the poor. The idea that there should be a tax that "soaks the rich" began to take root among progressives of both major parties. The Democrats took to progressivism more than the Republican Party, and the progressives of the Democrat Party were looking for a way to embarrass the conservative arm of the GOP so that they could gain some traction in the next election.
With social unrest rising among the population, a Democrat proposed the Bailey Bill with the express hope the Republicans would reject it. The theory was that after the Republicans rejected the bill, the Democrats could then point a finger at the Republicans, claiming for political purposes that the Republicans were in cahoots with the corrupt wealthy corporate types. A Republican rejection of the Bailey Bill, which would have imposed an income tax on the rich, would serve as proof of such an alignment between the Republicans and the wealthy. The slogan used by proponents of the Bailey Bill was "soak the rich," a direct call to tax people they considered to be profiteers, a class of plutocrats they claimed were in collusion with the Republicans.
The conservative Republicans knew what the progressives of the Democrat Party were up to, and launched a counter move. They proposed a constitutional amendment that would impose an income tax on the rich, and when the States refused to ratify the amendment, the Republicans would use that failure to ratify the amendment as proof that the people, through their State legislatures, were against the idea of a new income tax. In turn, that would defeat the Bailey Bill, for how could Congress approve an income tax against the rich through the Bailey Bill after the people and States rejected a constitutional amendment that would have done the very same thing?
The proponents of the 16th Amendment promised that if it were to be ratified (remember, it was fully expected not to be ratified) the income tax would only be imposed on the top 5% wage earners, it would be voluntary, and it would be temporary.
The progressives of the Republican Party, however, rallied behind the proposed amendment, and the Secretary of State announced the amendment was ratified on February 12, 1913.
Progressives, satisfied the 16th Amendment was ratified, hoped to use it to tax the rich. In the beginning, only 5% of the people were required to submit tax returns. Many of the rich, however, avoided the tax with charitable deductions, and other creative strategies.
During World War II Franklin Delano Roosevelt saw the income tax as a way to vastly increase revenue, and initiated a policy of withholding from "all" wages and salaries, not just the highest incomes enjoyed by the rich.   Rather than the rich paying the tax at the end of the year, the tax was collected at the payroll window before it was even due to be paid by the taxpayer. This style of collection shifted the tax from its original design as a tax on the wealthy to a tax on the masses, mostly on the middle class.
In addition to violating the original intent of Article I, Section 9 prohibiting direct taxation, the income tax also opposes the 4th Amendment which requires that a citizen's privacy be protected. An income tax enforced by the Internal Revenue Service violates the privacy of the home, business, personal papers and personal affairs of the private citizen. Since the tax is based on income, the IRS has the task of making sure everyone pays his fair share. This task is physically impossible without prying into the private papers, private business and personal affairs of the individual citizens.
Since the ratification of the 16th Amendment, there have been questions about whether the proper number of State ratification votes were ever achieved. Despite the argument by some researchers that the 16th Amendment was never properly ratified by the requisite three-fourths of the states, and that politicians of the day were aware of the discrepancy, Secretary of State Philander Knox fraudulently declared ratification. Some may suggest that he did so under the urgings of wealthy bankers like J.P. Morgan.
 
Terms:
 
Bailey Bill - Income Tax introduced in April 1909 by Senator Joseph W. Bailey, a Democrat from Texas, designed to embarrass conservative Republicans when they voted against it. The introduction of the bill was one of the factors that led to the proposal of the 16th Amendment.

            Federal Reserve
 
The same year the 16th Amendment created the income tax, the Federal Reserve was also created. The Federal Reserve is not a federal agency, and is actually a privately owned corporation owned by a secret group of international bankers. The Federal Reserve holds a monopoly on the creation of money in the United States. Whenever the U.S. Government needs money it borrows the money from the Federal Reserve. The Federal Reserve gladly loans that money because doing so results in a good profit for the bankers.
The Federal Reserve is not the first central bank, but it is the longest lasting. The First Bank of the United States in 1791, created by Alexander Hamilton, became a system of control over the American economy, and was, as described by Jefferson and Madison, "an engine for speculation, financial manipulation, and corruption."
In order to properly function, a central bank needs a collection of large sums of money from the people to pay off the interest on the money the government borrows. The creation of the income tax provided that opportunity.
The Federal Reserve Act surrendered control of the monetary system to the international banking cartel and guaranteed the eventual abandonment of the gold standard. The Federal Reserve's debt-based money guaranteed the enslavement of every American under a crushing debt burden. The Federal Reserve guaranteed the ability of the international banking cartel to confiscate wealth through artificially created boom/bust cycles.
The result is that the U.S. Government, and the bankers in charge of the Federal Reserve, can manipulate the economy simply by the amount of money they decide to pump into the system. The more currency is pumped into the system, the greater the rise of inflation rates. A reduction of the printing of money then results in a recovering economy. Government spending, in relation to the national debt, has a direct impact on the economic cycles we experience. The more the government borrows, the more fiat money is pumped into the system. The result is increased inflation, and a stalled economy. Cutting spending results in less money being borrowed, which then returns value to the dollar, and in turn reduces the level of inflation while encouraging capitalism to thrive.
The welfare system was created to compensate for the damage caused by the Federal Reserve and the income tax.
The 16th Amendment allows for the taxation on income from whatever source derived, which gives Congress, for the most part, carte blanche to tax at will, while giving the IRS the power to do all of the things the founders specifically disallowed the federal government from doing. This invasion of privacy, without due process, will continue as long as the 16th Amendment remains in force.
The income tax is in line with the Marxist philosophy of destroying a capitalist society by steeply graduating taxes on income and applying heavy levies upon the estates of people when they die.
 
 
Terms:
Capitalism - An economic system characterized by private or corporate ownership of capital goods, by investments that are determined by private decision, and by prices, production, and the distribution of goods that are determined mainly by competition in a free market.
 
Carte Blanche - Unrestricted power to act at one's own discretion; unconditional authority; derived from "blank cheque."
 
Federal Reserve - A privately owned corporation owned by a secret group of international bankers. The federal reserve holds a monopoly on the creation of money in the United States. Whenever the U.S. Government needs money it borrows the money from the Federal Reserve, thus creating a national debt.
 
Fiat Money - Money that derives its value from government regulation or law, but is not backed by any tangible collateral; money that lacks any intrinsic value.
 
Inflation - A sustained, rapid increase in prices, over months or years, and mirrored in the correspondingly decreasing purchasing power of the currency.
 
Questions for Discussion:
 
1. What are the similarities between Alexander Hamilton's National Bank, and the Federal Reserve?
 
2. How does the existence of Federal Reserve adversely influence our economic system?

17th Amendment: State Representation in the Senate
To comprehend the 17th Amendment, we need to go back in history to understand how our political system was originally established. The Founding Fathers included a number of checks and balances during the creation of the federal government in the hopes of providing enough safeguards to protect the people from an ever expansive, tyrannical, consolidated central government. The separation of powers between the three branches of government, and between the federal government and the States, were an integral part of these protections against tyranny. However, not all of the checks and balances put in place were obvious, nor are all of the checks and balances taught to us during our school years.
The dynamics of the federal government were set up to prevent any part of government from having access to too much power. Too much power in any one part of the system could be dangerous, and this includes too much power in the hands of the people.
The general population, just like the government, cannot be fully trusted with absolute power. To prevent the danger of too much power residing in any part of government, power needed to be divided as much as possible so as to keep it under control. Too much power in the hands of anybody has the potential of being a dangerous proposition, including in the hands of the voting public.
The United States is not a democracy. All of the voting power was not given directly to the people. The voting power was divided to ensure the Republic was protected from the mob-rule mentality of democracy.
The vote of the people, or the people's full and unquestioned voice in government, was, and still is, manifested in the U.S. House of Representatives. Then, as now, the representatives were voted into office directly by the people. Each Representative represents a district. The members of the United States Senate were not voted in directly by the people during the time period immediately following the ratification of the United States Constitution. U.S. Senators were voted in by an indirect vote of the people.
The Senators were appointed by their State legislatures. The State legislators are voted into office by the people of the State. Therefore, during the early years of this nation, the Senators attained office by an indirect vote of the people through their State legislatures.
The people are represented indirectly by the States in the U.S. Senate, and by the States appointing the Senators, the method of appointment allowed State's interests to be represented in the U.S. Congress.
Since they were appointed by the State legislatures, the Senators looked at the political atmosphere in a different manner than the members of the House of Representatives. Members of the House of Representatives are directly voted into office by the people, so their concerns are more in line with the immediate concerns of the people, no matter how whimsical those concerns may be.
The Senate functioned in a very different manner because when the Senators were appointed they were expected to abide by the wishes of the State legislatures. The Senators were expected to be representative of what was best for their States; State's Rights, State Sovereignty, protecting the States not only from a foreign enemy, but from a domestic enemy, should the federal government become the potential tyranny that the Founding Fathers, and especially the Anti-federalists, feared a central government could become.
The federal government exists because the States allow it to. The powers derived by the federal government were granted to it by the States, so in a way the States birthed the federal government, making the States the parents of the government in Washington, D.C. The federal government is not supposed to be able to do much of anything without the permission of the several States. The Senate was the representation of the States so that the States could ensure the federal government remained within its authorities.
The States having representation in the federal government through the U.S. Senate was also another way that checks and balances were applied to the system. The House of Representatives represented the people, and the Senate represented the States. Through this arrangement, it gave the people the ability to check the States, and the States the ability to check the people, and together they checked the Executive. The dynamics of our government through this arrangement were a built in check and balance.
The States could not get too far without the people approving of a senatorial proposal. The people could not get much done without The States agreeing with a proposal that originated in the House of Representatives. The executive branch could get little done without both the people and the States approving of it. However, if the President did not like what the people and the States were trying to accomplish, he could veto the bill. If the people and the States felt the legislation was important enough, they could override that veto with two-thirds of a vote in both Houses.
Looking at it in another way, a bill would be approved by both the people and the States before it went to the President to become law. This gave the Executive and both parts of the legislative branch the opportunity to approve or disapprove potential laws.
In 1913, the Seventeenth Amendment changed the originally intended dynamics of the American form of government. The amendment removed the States' representation from U.S. Government proceedings. The Seventeenth Amendment changed the appointment of the Senators from that of the State legislatures to that of the direct vote of the people. As a result, the protection of State Sovereignty was removed, and in its place was inserted ideology, and the willingness of Senators to buy the votes of individual voters through gifts from the treasury in a manner that was already emerging from the House of Representatives.
 
            Vacancies in the Senate
 
The Seventeenth Amendment also provides for appointments should a seat in the U.S. Senate be left vacant for any reason. The governors of the States, should the legislatures allow such, may make temporary appointments until a special election takes place. The State legislatures may change these rules as they deem necessary, such as requiring an immediate special election instead of allowing the governor to temporarily appoint a replacement. This leaves most of the power regarding filling vacancies in the hands of the State legislatures.
Massachusetts, during the reign of Democrat governors, used the rule that if there was a vacancy in the U.S. Senate, the governor could appoint the new Senator to complete that term of office. When Mitt Romney, who was a Republican, was governor, the Democrat dominated legislature feared a Republican appointment should one of the Massachusetts Senators die, so they changed the rule to require an immediate special election, fully confident the people would put another Democrat into office should one of the seats be vacated. The Massachusetts legislature even overrode a veto by Governor Mitt Romney to accomplish their rule change.
Romney did not run for reelection in 2006, and his gubernatorial term in Massachusetts ended January 4, 2007.
The new governor of Massachusetts in 2007 was Deval Patrick, a Democrat. When Senator Edward "Ted" Kennedy passed away August 25, 2009, since the State of Massachusetts had a Democrat governor, the Democrat-led legislature hurriedly changed the rule to enable the governor to appoint the new Senator as had been allowed before Mitt Romney was governor, just in case the people could not be trusted.
The appointed Democrat Party senator held the seat until a special election in January of 2010 that pitted Republican Scott Brown against Democrat Martha Coakley. To the surprise of the entire nation, Scott Brown won the election, sending tremors through the political establishment, which included the Democrats losing a filibuster-proof majority in the U.S. Senate. Brown was defeated in 2012 by Democrat Elizabeth Warren, returning the Senate Seat back to the Democrats when she took office on January 3, 2013.
 
            More like a Democracy
 
In the end, the real damage caused by the ratification of the 17th Amendment was that State representation in the Congress was removed. Senators, after the ratification of the 17th Amendment, would be voted into office by the vote of the people, making the U.S. Senate more like the House of Representatives, eliminating a very important check and balance, and making the United States more like a democracy and less like the Republic the Founders originally intended.
The people, fooled by a relenting rallying cry of "The will of the people," and a common belief that the leaders of the States could not be trusted, demanded that the federal government be changed into something more like a democracy. As the progressives desired, and planned, the American form of government moved closer to a democracy with the 17th Amendment.
Karl Marx once stated that "Democracy is the road to socialism."
Progressivism was on the rise in the United States during those early years of the 20th Century, and the statists knew that one of their main obstacles to consolidating government power into the grasp of the central authority in Washington was the independent and sovereign voice of the States. The 17th Amendment was one of the vehicles the statists used to begin the process of silencing the States, with the ultimate goal of making them irrelevant in regards to the running of the federal government.
The statists did not reveal their true intentions. If they had proclaimed that they desired the ratification of the 17th Amendment so that they could proceed in their quest to change the United States into a socialist system, the people would have rejected it. Instead, they used a populist argument. "It is for the will of the people. You deserve a Senate voted into office by the democratic will of the people. If you directly vote for the Senators, they will be more apt to act in line with the will of the people. After all, the States are corrupt, and they can't be trusted. You, the voting public, in the interest of democracy, deserve to be able to directly vote for the Senators yourselves."
As a result, the whole American political system has been turned on its head. The entire dynamic of our government system as it was originally intended to function has changed.
The damage to the American form of government reached deeper into the dynamics of our Constitutional Republic than immediately meets the eye.
The Founding Fathers made the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate different from each other for a reason.  
If a President of the United States signs a treaty, before that treaty goes into force, it must be ratified by the U.S. Senate, which back then was the voice of the States. It was the Framer's way of making sure the States could act as a protective mechanism against a President who might make treaties that were dangerous to State Sovereignty. However, now the Senate no longer represents the States, so that important safeguard is no longer in place. Senators more apt to defend an ideology, rather than the best interest of their State, are in office now. The ratification of treaties has totally changed in a way that could place State Sovereignty in jeopardy. The States no longer have a voice in that part of the governing process anymore, and as a result it has become easier for the federal government to enter into treaties that compromise State interests, or local issues over which the federal government would normally not have any authority.
Another point to examine in regards to the Senate ratification of treaties, is since the people, through their States, are the final arbiters of the Constitution, the Founders felt no worry about unconstitutional treaties being ratified. After all, the final arbiters of the Constitution, the States, were the ones in charge of the ratification of all treaties. Now, since ideology now takes precedence over States' Rights in the Senate, we are faced by a number of draconian treaties . . . and there is nothing the States can do about it.
The appointment of judges, such as Supreme Court Justices, has also been altered by the passage of the 17th Amendment. Imagine how different the hearings regarding the appointment of Supreme Court Justices would be if the Senators were appointed by the State legislatures?
Do you think it would be as easy for an activist judge to be appointed?
Do you think the nominees would be asked questions geared towards the Constitution, and protecting State Sovereignty?
The people were told that the States could no longer be trusted in their appointment of the Senators, and the States got lazy and didn't wish to participate in that manner anymore. As a result, the 17th Amendment was ratified, and look at the mess it has caused.
Let's return to the concept of "dividing power" for a moment. The Founding Fathers divided the voting power. By the States appointing the Senators, it divided the people's voting power.
During the early years of this nation the State legislatures also appointed the Electors for president.
The people only directly voted into office the Representatives of the U.S. House of Representatives.
This division of voting power was put into place because the Founding Fathers knew that should the people be fooled while they completely controlled the vote, a tyranny could ensure that it was voted into the three primary parts of government: the Executive, the House of Representatives, and the U.S. Senate. Once tyranny had control of those three parts of government, the judicial branch would be sure to follow, if not already in collusion with the other two branches.
The Founders knew that should the uninformed electorate vote in a tyranny, while caught up in some kind of cult of personality, it would spell the beginning of the end of the United States as we know it.
The Founding Fathers knew that democracy of that kind would destroy the system, so they divided the power of the vote. The voting power was divided so as to protect us from the excesses of democracy.
Looking back on 2006, 2008, and 2012 we see an example of exactly what the Founding Fathers warned us about. A single ideology, one that is hostile towards the U.S. Constitution, and hostile to the American System, fooled the people, and took control of some of the most vital parts of government. The destructive reasoning by the statists of the Progressive Era for the passage of the 17th Amendment was fulfilled.
The 17th Amendment, combined with the creation of the Federal Reserve, and the implementation of an income tax, was all a part of a scheme to change the American System into a model of socialism through the guise of democracy.
We are not a democracy, and we were never meant to be a democracy. The 17th Amendment moved us in that direction. The Founding Fathers continuously spoke out against the dangers of democracy. They knew that democracies lead to mob-rule. As much as the government couldn't be trusted with too much power, neither could the voting public.
The Constitution is filled with checks and balances. Yet, the people of that time period were fooled so easily by the statists. James Madison five times in his Federalist Papers writings wrote, "We are a Republic, by which I mean. . ." and then he would explain what a republic is. He felt the need to do so because those who opposed the Constitution because they believed the political system should be one of nationalism argued that democracy and republicanism were the same.
Thomas Jefferson said, "Democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those that are willing to work and give to those who would not."
John Adams said, "While it lasts, Democracy becomes more bloody than either an aristocracy or a monarchy. Democracy never lasts long; it soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There is never a democracy that did not commit suicide."
Thomas Jefferson said, "A democracy is nothing more than mob-rule, where 51% of the people may take away the rights of the other 49%."
James Bovard said, "Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for dinner."
A friend of mine, the late Tim "Loki" Kerlin, added that a republic is "two wolves, and a well-armed sheep contesting the vote."
Benjamin Franklin, after asked what the Founders created in the Constitutional Convention, replied, "A republic, if you can keep it."
With freedom comes responsibility. It is up to us to repeal the 17th Amendment.
 
Terms:
 
Activist Judge - A public officer charged with applying the law in order to administer justice, but also interprets the law, and modifies the law according to his opinion; a judge who legislates from the bench.
 
Checks and Balances - An internal system in government where each part of government can counter the actions or decisions of the other parts. This arrangement ensures transparency, and prevents domination of the government by any part.
 
Collusion - Conspire together.
 
Constitutional Republic - Government that adheres to the rule or authority of the principles of a constitution. A representative government that operates under the rule of law.

Direct Vote - Citizens vote themselves; popular vote.
 
Ideology - A set of political or economic ideas that forms the basis of economic or political theory and policy.
 
Indirect Vote - Representatives of Electors vote instead of the citizens. The indirect vote may be based on criteria that includes the will, or portions of the will, of the citizens; before the 17th Amendment, United States Senators were chosen by an indirect vote of the people, in which State representatives who attained their office by a direct vote of the people appointed U.S. Senators to represent their State in Congress; the President is elected by an indirect vote of the people through electors who traditionally follow the popular vote of their State, but have the choice to change that vote if believed to be necessary, and a President may be elected based on an Electoral majority that does not reflect the national popular vote.

Nationalism - Political ideology which involves a strong identification of a group of individuals with a political entity defined in national terms. There are various strands of nationalism. The ideology may dictate that citizenship in a state should be limited to one ethnic, cultural or identity group. Nationalism may also include the belief that the state is of primary importance, which becomes the unhealthy love of one's government, accompanied by the aggressive desire to build that governmental system to a point that it is above all else, and becomes the ultimate provider for the public good.
 
Republic - Form of government that uses the rule of law through a government system led by representatives and officials voted in by a democratic process. The United States enjoys a Constitutional Republic.
 
Republicanism - Rule by law through a government system led by representatives and officials voted in by a democratic process. The United States enjoys a Constitutional Republic.

Statists - Individuals that hold that government should control the economic and social policies of the system it serves.
 
Questions for Discussion:
 
1. Why are the originally intended checks and balances so important to safeguarding freedom?
 
2. What was the concept of the separation of powers designed to protect against?
 
3. How does the Seventeenth Amendment add to the withering away of State Sovereignty?
 
4. How is socialism and democracy related?
 
5. Why would dividing powers include dividing the voting power of the people?

          Washington Capitals: 2017-2018 By the Tens -- Defensemen: Matt Niskanen      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Matt Niskanen

“Slow but steady wins the race.”
-- Aesop


Coming into this season, Matt Niskanen was one of 26 active defensemen to have appeared in at least 700 games and recorded 250 points.  Not an exclusive club, but not one of wide membership, either.  In his first three seasons with the Washington Capitals after signing a contract as a free agent in the summer of 2014, he posted consistently better point total – 31 points in 2014-2015, 32 points in 2015-2016, and 39 points last season.  He averaged more than 22 minutes of ice time per game in each of those three seasons, and he improved his discipline, taking a diminishing number of penalty minutes – 47 in 2014-2015, 38 in 2015-2016, and 32 last season.

Niskanen was also a durable player, missing a total of only four games with the Caps over three seasons (all of them last season) and 53 over ten seasons entering the 2017-2018 campaign.  His durability was put to the test early in the season.  He dressed for the first four games, skating more than 20 minutes in all of them, more than 25 minutes in two of them.  He was on his way to adding to that string in the Caps’ fifth game of the year, in New Jersey against the Devils.  But late in the second period of a 2-1 game, Caps in front, he was slashed by Jimmy Hayes.  He sat out the remainder of the Caps’ 5-2 win and then was placed on long-term injured reserve, ultimately missing 13 games.

Niskanen’s absence mattered.  The Caps went 7-6-0 in those 13 games he was out of the lineup, and they lost the first two games he played upon his return when he skated 20:33 in a 6-3 loss to the Nashville Predators and only 17:56 in a 6-2 loss to the Colorado Avalanche.  In those 15 games, the Caps allowed 51 goals (3.92 per game).  Niskanen recorded his first point since Opening Night in the Caps’ next game, an assist on the game-winning goal by Dmitry Orlov in a 3-1 win over the Minnesota Wild.

Niskanen was durable thereafter, playing in 61 of 62 games starting with that game against the Wild when he returned to the score sheet.  Over that span he was 7-21-28, plus-24, a scoring line that on a per-82 game basis would have been 9-28-37, plus-32. With durability came consistency.  In his last six ten-game segments he had four or more points in five of them and was a “minus” player in just one of them.


Fearless’ Take… Unlike a lot of players, whose heavier ice time loads are accompanied by a lack of team success, the Caps did quite well when Niskanen assumed a heavier ice time burden.  In 19 games in which he skated more than 24 minutes, the Caps were 14-2-3.  And when he was productive, so were the Caps.  Washington was 6-1-0 in games in which Niskanen scored a goal, 20-5-0 in games in which he recorded a point.

Cheerless’ Take… In some respects, a more active Niskanen was not a more effective Niskanen.  When recording at least three shots on goal, the Caps were just 8-7-2.  They were 9-5-1 when he was credited with at least three hits.  And before we get to the “odd” Niskanen fact, here is a strange one.  The 2017-2018 season was Niskanen’s first in the NHL in which he did not record a power play point.

Odd Niskanen Fact… Matt Niskanen is one of two NHL defensemen to finish the season at plus-20 or better the last two seasons.  Pittsburgh’s Justin Schultz is the other.  He is also one of just two Capitals defensemen to record as many as two plus-20 or better seasons with the club since the 2005-2006 season (Mike Green was the other), and he is one of just five defensemen in team history to record as many as two seasons at plus-20 or better (in addition to Green, Sylvain Cote, Sergei Gonchar, and Darren Veitch).

Game to Remember… December 8th vs. New York Rangers

Between injury and circumstance, Matt Niskanen went into an early December game against the New York Rangers having not recorded a goal in 16 games played.  That game – his 17thof the season – was a milestone of sorts, his 750th game in the NHL.  And when Nicklas Backstrom added a second period goal to one scored by Jay Beagle in the first period to give the Caps a 2-0 lead, it looked as if it would be a happy night for the Caps and Niskanen.  However, Michael Grabner scored with less than a minute to go in the second period to halve the Caps’ lead, and Jesper Fasdt scored mid-way through the third period to tie the game, 2-2. 

With less than four minutes left in regulation, the Caps took the lead back, thanks to an unlikely player from an unlikely spot on the ice.  The Caps set up a conveyor belt inside the Rangers’ blue line, Christian Djoos backing off from the top of the left wing circle before leaving the puck off for Nicklas Backstrom circling in Djoos’ wake.  Backstrom did the same, backing off and then leaving the puck for Alex Ovechkin curling out from the circle.  Ovechkin snapped a shot at the Rangers’ net.  That drive was stopped by goalie Henrik Lundqvist, but the rebound popped out to the low slot.  Tom Wilson reached out and swept it to his left, where Niskanen parked himself.  Fighting off Boo Nieves, Niskanen swatted the loose puck behind Lundqvist for what would be the game-winning goal in the Caps’ 4-2 win.  It was also Niskanen’s 50th goal in the NHL.

Game to Forget… February 11th vs. Detroit

The Caps had just won both ends of a tough home-and-home set against the Columbus Blue Jackets when they hosted the Detroit Red Wings in the second week of February.  Matt Niskanen came into this game with points in three of his previous four contests.  On the other side, the Wings came into the contest losers of three in a row and were lit up for seven goals in a 7-6 overtime loss to the New York Islanders in the game preceding this one.

When Alex Ovechkin scored just 4:20 into the game, it appeared that the Caps’ good fortune would continue, as would the Red Wings’ woes.  That was until the Wings scored four straight goals over a 26-minute span over the first and second periods.  Matt Niskanen was on the ice for two of them.  The Caps did mount a comeback and tied the game on a power play goal by Nicklas Backstrom with just 16.7 seconds left in regulation to salvage a standings point.  However, Detroit scored in overtime on a Tomas Tatar goal to capture the second standings point.  For his part, Niskanen skated 21:56 without recording a point or a shot on goal (his only shot attempt was blocked).  He had one hit and one giveaway, and he finished minus-2, his only minus-2 game of the season.

Postseason… Matt Niskanen was a minutes-eater in the postseason, and it was a critical element of success for the Caps.  In the 11 games in which he skated at least 24:29, the Caps went 9-2, both losses coming in overtime against Columbus in the opening round.  He skated two games with more than 30 minutes in ice time; Only Seth Jones of the Columbus Blue Jackets had more such games (four; John Carlson also had a pair for the Caps).  And his performance in the “grittership” areas gave support to the idea that some such numbers aren’t that good to have.  In the 13 games in which NIskanen’s combined hits and blocked shots were fewer than five, the Caps were 10-3.  They were 6-5 otherwise.  As far as scoring was concerned, his nine points in 24 games was almost equal to his combined total with the Caps in three previous postseasons covering 36 games (11 points).

In the end…

Four seasons into his seven-year contract with the Capitals, Matt Niskanen has established himself among the better defensemen to have played for a franchise with a long history of superior defensemen.  He is one of 20 defensemen to have appeared in at least 300 regular season games for the club (310/20th) and is one of only ten to have dressed for at least 50 games (63/8th).  He is one of 17 defensemen with at least 20 goals as a Cap in the regular season (21/T-15th), one of 14 with at least 125 points (131/14th).  He is tied with Karl Alzner for fifth-best plus-minus among Caps defensemen (plus-61).  He has done it largely by being in the lineup, no small thing at a position where physical wear and tear is considerable.  He is one of 16 NHL defensemen to log at least 7,100 minutes over the last four seasons.

With the Caps sustaining a departure of half of their defense the ended the 2016-2017 season (Alzner, Nate Schmidt, and Kevin Shattenkirk) and having to break in rookies at the position to start this season (Christian Djoos and Madison Bowey), his consistency, durability, and steadiness as the season wore on was an important ingredient to the Caps’ success.  It will no doubt continue to be important and valuable as the Caps try to extend their good fortune to the 2018-2019 season.

Well aren’t you just a naughty little ABDL PHONE SEX LOVER. Mommy Tawny had to all about your naughty behavior from your babysitter last night. You promised Mommy that you would behave while she went in a date with her boyfriend. You promised that you would be a perfect angel for your babysitter. But that is the exact opposite of what happened your babysitter told me how when you started to misbehave right after I left. You told your sitter you were a big boy and took off you diaper and tried to use that tiny excuse for a penis to have sex with her. Of course it didn’t work and she laughed at how small you were. But I am just apalled that you would even have the nerve to try something like that while I was gone. Mommy has a real man she was spending time with a real man who knows exactly how to please a woman. And I have decided as punishment your going to have to sit in you high chair with you big cock pacifier in your mouth and watch Mommy and the babysitter get fucked hard by a real man not a little SISSY ABDL BABY.
