RealClear Cyber Today host Andrew Walworth discusses the future of cyber conflict and the quickly evolving world of cyber strategy with New York Times National Security Correspondent David Sanger, author of the new book The Perfect Weapon: War, Sabotage and Fear in the Cyber Age. In an era marked by increasingly aggressive use of cyber weapons by a range of adversaries, US policymakers have been slow to develop a coherent strategy for their use, even as America deploys its own cyber arsenal against foreign targets. In an in-depth interview, Sanger discusses how the US is already both an aggressor and defender in a multitude of cyber conflicts, and why it is vital that American policymakers develop strategies and norms regarding cyber weapons and their use.

Stephen J. Choi (New York University School of Law), G. Mitu Gulati (Duke University School of Law), & Robert E. Scott (Columbia University - Law School) have posted Hidden Holdouts: Contract Arbitrageurs and the Pricing of Collective Rights on SSRN.  Here is the abstract: Research on the law and economics of contract typically analyzes the explicit pricing of the contract terms in a debt contract by modeling a bilateral debtor-creditor relationship, a framework we call the “classical model.” Under this model, contract terms that affect the debtor’s repayment obligations are reflected in the price the debtor pays. Much of commercial lending, however, occurs in thick markets with standardized multilateral debt instruments. Depending on the degree to which key contract terms implicate collective decision making among dispersed and anonymous creditors, the classical bilateral model of debt contracting can err in its predictions on the…

          Justin Bieber Got Stephen Baldwin's Permission Before Proposing to Hailey Baldwin      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Stephen Baldwin was more than happy to give Justin Bieber permission to propose to Hailey Baldwin.

A source confirms to E! News that the 24-year-old "Baby" singer asked Hailey's dad for his blessing to propose before getting down on one knee, adding that the conversation happened more than a few weeks ago.

"Stephen was thrilled to give his permission," the insider tells us.

It was actually Stephen who introduced Justin to his daughter for the first time while at the Today show when they were just teenagers. The father-daughter duo later attended Justin's 2011 Never Say Never premiere in New York City and posed with the singer on the red carpet.

Was It Destiny? See Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin's First Red Carpet Together as Teens

Justin and Hailey were first romantically linked in 2015, but went on to have separate relationships. Then last month, the duo fueled relationship rumors when they packed on the PDA in Miami. Since that time, Justin and Hailey have been inseparable, leading Justin to propose to the 21-year-old model on Saturday night while on vacation in the Bahamas.

After news broke of the couple's engagement, Hailey's dad took to social media to react to the news, tweeting a Bible quote along with #blessed. He then tweeted and deleted, "Sweet smile on my face ! me&wife (Kennya) Always pray 4 Gods will !! He is moving in the hearts of JB&HB Let's all pray for His will to be done...Love you 2 so much !!! #Godstiming #bestisyettocome Congrats ❤️ @JeremyBieber @pattiemallette #PraiseJesus."

How Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber's Parents Reacted to Their Engagement

Justin's dad, Jeremy Bieber, posted a photo of the singer on Instagram Sunday along with the caption, "@justinbieber Proud is an understatement! Excited for the next chapter!"

On Monday, Justin broke his silence on the engagement, confirming the news in a lengthy post on Instagram. "Was gonna wait a while to say anything but word travels fast, listen plain and simple Hailey I am soooo in love with everything about you! So committed to spending my life getting to know every single part of you loving you patiently and kindLY. I promise to lead our family with honor and integrity letting Jesus through his Holy Spirit guide us in everything we do and every decision we make," his message began.

"My heart is COMPLETELY and FULLY YOURS and I will ALWAYS put you first!" Justin continued. "You are the love of my life Hailey Baldwin and I wouldn't want to spend it with anybody else."

Hailey then wrote on Twitter, "Not sure what I did in life to deserve such happiness but I am so utterly grateful to God for giving me such an incredible person to share my life with! No words could ever express my gratitude. ❤️"

On Tuesday, the couple was spotted celebrating their engagement with a boat ride in the Bahamas.

The reported couple, who caused a media whirlwind when news of their apparent relationship spread last year, looked less than picture perfect in a series of photographs published in the Daily Mail. The pair seemed to be arguing, with Rihanna jabbing her finger in the Saudi businessman’s direction — but for all we know, they could have been engaged in a lighthearted game of charades.

NEW YORK (AP) — It's no secret that Twitter has been purging fake and malicious accounts in an attempt to make its platform more welcoming for real people. But when a Washington Post report put an actual number on the effort — 70 million accounts deleted in May and June — the company's shares tumbled. Investors worried that the removals could put a dent in the company's reported user figures. As of the first three months of this year, Twitter had 336 million monthly users. The San Francisco-based company's stock plunged as much as 9 percent Monday before closing down $2.51, or 5.4 percent, at $44.14. But Twitter Chief Financial Officer Ned Segal says most of the removed accounts haven't been active for 30 days or more.

Unter dem Oberthema Liquid City / Flüchtige Stadt hat die belgische Stadt  internationale Künstler und Architekten eingeladen, darüber nachzudenken, wie flexibel, fließend und belastbar eine historische Stadt wie Brügge in einer Zeit sein kann, in der nichts sicher scheint. Verteilt über die innere Stadt befinden sich Installationen und Skulpturen, die sich ganz unterschiedlich dem Oberthema nähern. „Our first thought led us to thinking about the biggest liquid city on the planet (the ocean), how it connects us all, and how the waste produced and consumed in our cities, specifically plastic waste, ends up in the ocean.“ Eine Installation, die es uns ganz besonders angetan hat, ist die 11 Meter hohe Skulptur Skyscraper (The Bruges Whale) von STUDIOKCA. Das Architekturstudio aus New York hat als Beitrag für die Triennale einen Wal aus Plastikmüll gebaut, der in der Innenstadt von Brügge aus einem Kanal ragt, so als würde das Tier gerade zum Sprung ansetzen. Alle Plastikteile, aus denen die Skulptur gebaut ist, stammen von Meeresstränden. Vier Monate lang hat ein Team im Vorfeld Müll an verschiedenen Stränden gesammelt, um daraus im Anschluss den 11 Meter großen Wal zu formen. „THE STORY OF SKYSCRAPER: 5 tons of plastic waste pulled ...

          The round the world life of a Clipper Race Crew Supporter       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
HotelPlanner.com

With arrivals into Derry-Londonderry this week it only seems fitting that our latest ‘Meet the Race Crew Supporter’ is Patrick Merrick. Patrick’s wife, Mary Frawley, is a ‘round the worlder’ crew member on HotelPlanner.com and is currently racing the final miles towards her home Stopover as the couple live in Tipperary.

Whilst Dairy farmer Patrick admits that he is neither a sailor nor an adventurer, he did not want this to stand in the way of Mary and her ambition.

When Mary had first received the Clipper Race brochures she had broached the subject of them doing it together – something Patrick said no to but quickly following this with ‘you go for it!’.

Until Mary signed up, Patrick hadn’t heard much about the Clipper Race but is now a fully immersed in the Clipper Race Crew Supporter family which is run by Ruth Charles, Race Crew Supporter Coordinator.

Running a dairy farm is a full-on business and the couple had only holidayed every two years, but Mary’s round the world adventure has meant new travel experiences for both of them. Originally Patrick had pencilled in a few Stopovers to welcome and cheer Mary on. However, the Supporter bug soon took hold and his travel list soon had Liverpool, Uruguay, Cape Town, all three Australian Stopovers, Seattle, New York and of course Derry-Londonderry.

It’s a hard call but Patrick says that Uruguay has been his favourite Stopover so far. He says: “I think it’s my favourite because it was the first. I was going for Mary and to be part of the race but at that point I didn’t know anyone. But I met so many fellow Supporters like me.” He says these Supporters are friends now and they meet up at each Stopover.

He’s an avid reader of the Race Viewer, scouring Mary’s progress every breakfast time and reads all the HotelPlanner.com Crew Blogs too. Patrick says of the Crew Blogs: “They are essential for people back at home who are following their loved ones. I like to read what life is like on board and helps me keep in touch.”

Patrick says life at sea suits his wife. “She’s happier. She’s always been brave but not one to seek the limelight. At each Stopover she doesn’t seem to hide at the back of a group so much and I’m very proud of her.” And he can’t wait for Derry-Londonderry too. As it’s so local, he can keep an eye on the Race Viewer so he knows when to set off from home to welcome in Mary.

It can seem daunting being separated from family for so long but Patrick has advice for anyone who anyone who’ll be a Race Crew Supporter in future races. He says: “It’s their dream and you can’t stand in the way of this. Try to go to as many Stopovers as you can – it takes time and also money but for me it has been all worth it. And involve yourself in as much of the race as you can. You’ll make lots of friends along the way.”

Mary and her Hotelplanner.com teammates are due to arrive into Derry-Londonderry in the coming hours, keep an eye on the Clipper Race Viewer and Clipper Race: LIVE Facebook page. To find out more about being a Race Crew Supporter, click here.

PSP Logistics arrives into Derry-Londonderry

It was a very warm welcome for PSP Logistics as the team arrived into Derry-Londonderry despite the grey skies and light drizzle in the air. The team completed Race 12 at 07:27 UTC on 10 July to finish sixth and after opting to play their Joker Card will add 14 points to their overall tally from this race.

For Skipper Matt Mitchell this was his seventeenth transatlantic crossing and from past experience opted to seek out the benefits of the Gulf Stream to the south of the Rhumb line. Unfortunately it was to no avail and the team found themselves in tenth position. On arrival today he said: “The Gulf Stream wasn’t quite what I expected it to be this time. It had worked for me in the last edition but when we got ourselves in exactly the right place it just didn’t really happen for us unfortunately. We found ourselves in tenth position and so decided to try something a bit different.

In true PSP Logistics style, the team then took a risk and headed north to try and get the better of the wind forecast and avoid the area of high pressure that is currently engulfing the remainder of the fleet. This tactic payed off. Whilst the final result was not what they had originally hoped for after winning the previous race into New York, the team were pleased with what they had achieved.

Arriving into Derry-Londonderry was extra special for Michael McGahern as he’s from five miles outside the, home city. The Site Manager, who is now living in London, signed up to take on the final leg of the Clipper 2017-18 Race and on his arrival said: “It’s been tough, but great to be home. It was a bit rough, bit wet and a bit cold but we got here. It was what I expected and more! ”

HotelPlanner.com, Skippered by Derry-Londonderry local, Conall Morrison, will be the next team to arrive into the Foyle Port Marina. Estimated to be in between 1800-1900 today (10/07/18). Keep track of HotelPlanner.com’s progress and the rest of the fleet on the Race Viewer and the latest ETAs here.

          Who Is Brett Kavanaugh? A Supreme Court Reading Guide      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

President Trump on Monday night nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the seat on the U.S. Supreme Court that Justice Anthony Kennedy will vacate at the end of the month. Kavanaugh is a judge on the powerful U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. Below, we’ve gathered some of the best reporting on Kavanaugh.

Did we miss anything? Leave a link in the comments or tweet to us with #scotusnominee.

Potential Nominee Profile: Brett Kavanaugh

SCOTUSblog, June 2018

SCOTUSblog’s profile of Kavanaugh provides a comprehensive summary of the judge’s background, from his upbringing in the Washington area to his college and law school years at Yale to his prestigious positions in various parts of the federal government. As the profile notes, Kavanaugh was a law clerk for Kennedy, whom he has been nominated to replace. The piece offers a highlight reel of Kavanaugh’s time on the federal appeals court in Washington. Ultimately, the article concludes, Kavanaugh “brings a pragmatic approach to judging,” albeit with a serious conservative bent.

Brett Kavanaugh, a Conservative Stalwart in Political Fights and on the Bench

New York Times, July 2018

The New York Times’ Adam Liptak examines Kavanaugh’s personal and professional history. The profile depicts Kavanaugh as a decidedly conservative Washington insider but hardly a rank partisan. He’s known as a nuanced and careful thinker, and although his judicial opinions are often lauded by voices on the right, he has shied away from absolutist positions, at times to the chagrin of conservatives. He has “formed lifelong friendships with liberals, many of whom praise his intellect and civility,” and those who worked with him before he became a judge described him as “often a moderating force.”

Kavanaugh Paper Chase Threatens to Draw Out Confirmation Battle

Politico, July 2018

Kavanaugh’s nomination “presents a band of government archivists and White House officials with a herculean task: wading through what could be millions of pages of records” ahead of his confirmation hearings. The paper trail leads back to the two years Kavanaugh spent in Bush’s White House Counsel’s Office and another three years he spent as Bush’s staff secretary. Politico’s Josh Gerstein takes a look at how the extensive documentation of Kavanaugh’s executive branch career could slow the judge’s confirmation process.

Trump’s Supreme Court Frontrunner Is the “Forrest Gump of Republican Politics”

Mother Jones, June 2018

This Mother Jones profile casts Kavanaugh as a consummate insider of the D.C. conservative establishment who “frequently inserted himself into high-profile political battles.” Kavanaugh worked on the team of Kenneth Starr, the independent counsel who investigated President Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky. He represented the Miami relatives of Elian Gonzalez in a high-profile immigration dispute in 2000, in which they sought to keep the Cuban boy in the United States. He worked on George W. Bush’s legal team during the contentious 2000 presidential election recount in Florida — and went on to oversee judicial nominations in Bush’s White House Counsel’s Office. His ubiquity earned him the nickname the “Forrest Gump of Republican politics.”

How Four Potential Nominees Would Change the Supreme Court

FiveThirtyEight, July 2018

FiveThirtyEight draws on a tool to measure judicial ideology developed by legal scholars and political scientists to assess Kavanaugh’s potential effect on the Supreme Court’s jurisprudential makeup. The conclusion: a Justice Kavanaugh “would likely represent a reliably conservative voice and vote on the high court”—“to the right of Gorsuch and Justice Samuel Alito, and just to the left of the arch conservative Justice Clarence Thomas.” That would leave Chief Justice John Roberts as the “new median justice.” FiveThirtyEight adds a caveat, however, about the metric it’s relying on: it’s based on the ideology of the politicians who nominated a judge—in this case, Bush—rather than the judge’s rulings.

Brett Kavanaugh, Supreme Court Front-Runner, Once Argued Broad Grounds for Impeachment

The New York Times, July 2018

The Times’ Mark Landler and Matt Apuzzo take a look at Kavanaugh’s time on Starr’s team — and its implications for Trump. Starr’s report as independent counsel, which Kavanaugh co-wrote, argues that lying to staff members and misleading the public are grounds to impeach a president for obstruction of justice. That “broad definition of obstruction of justice,” Landler and Apuzzo write, “would be damaging if applied to President Trump in the Russia investigation.”

Top Supreme Court Prospect Has Argued Presidents Should Not Be Distracted by Investigations and Lawsuits

The Washington Post, June 2018

The Washington Post examines a 2009 law review article in which Kavanaugh argued that a sitting president shouldn’t have to deal with “time-consuming and distracting” lawsuits and investigations. The distraction “would ill serve the public interest, especially in times of financial or national security crisis,” Kavanaugh wrote. That, the Post notes, “puts him on the record regarding a topic of intense interest to Trump — and could be a central focus of his confirmation hearing.”

Holding Court

The New Yorker, March 2012

In this comment, Jeffrey Toobin describes Kavanaugh as a judge in thrall to partisan politics. Toobin characterizes Kavanaugh’s work as an appeals judge as “startling.” He accuses Kavanaugh of “pandering to the base” in a dissenting opinion he wrote in a case challenging Obamacare. Kavanaugh “appeared to offer some advice to the Republicans who are challenging Obama in the election,” Toobin wrote — whatever courts hold, a Republican president could simply decline to enforce the health-care law because he deems it unconstitutional.

Leading Contender to Be Trump’s Supreme Court Pick Faces Questions from Social Conservatives

The Washington Post, July 2018

The Washington Post’s Robert Acosta and Josh Dawsey survey conservative misgivings about Kavanaugh’s record on the federal appeals court in Washington. Where Toobin saw Kavanaugh as a right-wing partisan, many social conservatives fear he’s not enough of a hardliner. The conservative response to the White House floating Kavanaugh’s name included “a clamor from those who see him as out of step on health care and abortion, or too tied to George W. Bush’s White House.” The concerns arise from opinions Kavanaugh wrote in cases challenging the Affordable Care Act and in a recent case over the right of an immigrant teenager in federal custody to have an abortion. The judge dissented in those cases, but did not go as far as “ideological purists” would have liked.

Federal Judge Downplayed Role in Detainee Cases

NPR, June 2007

NPR’s Ari Shapiro reported on what some Democratic senators saw as misleading testimony Kavanaugh provided during his 2006 confirmation hearing to become a federal appeals judge in Washington. Kavanaugh had told Sen. Richard Durbin, D.-Illinois, that during his time in the Bush White House he was not involved in conversations about the rules governing the handling of detainees captured in the War on Terror. In fact, he had been involved in 2002 discussions about whether detainees had a right to an attorney. Durbin told NPR he felt “perilously close to being lied to.” (Kavanaugh, through a court spokesman, called his testimony accurate.)

          Der künftige Goldman-Sachs-CEO hat einen Song veröffentlicht, den es bereits jetzt auf Spotify gibt (GS)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

david solomon

Goldman Sachs' Chief Operating Officer, David M. Solomon, ist in seiner Freizeit am liebsten an den Turntables als DJ aktiv. Und das bereits seits Jahren. Anfang Juni veröffentlichte Solomon nun seine erste Single, wie Business Insider erfuhr. „Don't stop“ heißt der dreimiütige EDM-Track, den Solomon unter dem Künstlernamen „D-Sol“ bereits auf Spotify und Apple Music veröffentlicht hat.

Dass Solomon für seine DJ-Auftritte das Pseudonym „D-Sol“ verwendet, mag zum einen daran liegen, dass er in seine Funktion als DJ und Produzent nicht als Investmenbanker von Goldman Sachs verstanden werden möchte. Zum anderen möchte Solomun aber womöglich auch Verwechslungen mit dem bosnisch-deutschen weltbekannten DJ und Produzenten Mladen Solomun vermeiden, der schlicht als Solomun produziert und auftritt. 

Der Track von „D-Sol“ wurde bei Spotify bereits zu den Playlists „Happy Summer Beats“ und „Fresh Electroni“ hinzugefügt.

Solomon gilt als Nachfolger des Goldman-CEO Lloyd Blankfein. Seine Nebenrolle als DJ wurde von der „New York Times“ erstmals breit publik gemacht, Solomon hatte sein Hobby aber ohnehin nie heimlich gehalten. Angeblich nutzte er sogar seine Vorliebe für elektronische Tanzmusik bei einem Pitch für eine Berater-Tätigkeit beim Börsengang des Streamingdienstes Spotify.

In einer Episode des Podcasts „Exchanges at Goldman Sachs“ beschrieb Solomon sich als ein schon lange von der modernen Musikindustrie faszinierter Audio-Liebhaber.

Fallon, who served as press secretary for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, took to CNN last night, where he gave Chris Cuomo a preview of his organization’s likely attacks on Kavanaugh.

We are SO INSPIRED by the hundreds of thousands (yes! HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS) of people who rallied last weekend all over the country in support of immigrant children and families! Your voices are making a difference! We have already defeated two very bad immigration bills in the last few weeks because Congress heard the outraged voices of people like you!

This week we're continuing to speak out about immigration, and demanding Wells Fargo stop financing private prison corporations that are profiting off the pain and separation of families. We're also sharing important actions around gun safety and early learning.  

As always, please read, share, and flex those parent powers before enjoying your weekend. Thank you for all you do!  

1. Tell Wells Fargo - Stop Financing Pain For Corporate Gain! 

BACKGROUND: Let’s use our power as consumers to cut off the corporate money behind Trump’s unconscionable immigration policies! Private prison companies are not only making huge profits from the incarceration and detention of immigrants, they are also a huge political force in lobbying for the legislation and policies that criminalize immigrants and communities of color in the U.S. But private prisons are not the only ones making money here. Two of the private prison industry leaders, CoreCivic and GEO Group, depend on debt financing from Wells Fargo and other banks to conduct their day-to-day business operations, finance new facilities, and acquire smaller companies. This is a big deal. An analysis of U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filings over the past 10 years, shows that Wells Fargo has played a leading role in financing these debts. As consumers, we have the power to stop this!  *Join us to tell Wells Fargo to STOP financing CoreCivic and GEO Group, private prison corporations that are profiting off the pain and separation of families. 

 

2. Stop the Opening of New Floodgates for Gun Sales! 

BACKGROUND: The NRA and gun manufacturers want guns everywhere, for everyone, not just here in the United States, but around the world. They are pushing hard for a rule change that would move the handling of export licenses of semiautomatic assault weapons and other powerful firearms from the U.S. State Department (focused on safeguarding our nation) to the U.S. Commerce Department (focused on promoting American business). This transfer of authority would open new floodgates for arms sales internationally, with serious implications for our national security. *Submit a comment now to the State Department and the Commerce Department through the link above. You can write in something like: “I oppose this rule change that would switch the regulations of firearms export from the U.S. State Department to the U.S. Commerce Department.” The public comment period for this rule change ends on July 9.

3. Speak Out: Imprisoning Kids With Parents is Still Imprisoning Kids!

BACKGROUND: President Trump’s June 20th Executive Action did not end the zero tolerance policy, and did not stop the continued detention of children--rather it allows for the detention of children with their parents, while also speeding up the process for deporting immigrant families applying for asylum. It is well-documented that family incarceration has serious negative consequences for the mental and physical health of children and families. Research has consistently shown that even a short amount of time in detention is harmful for children, compounding on trauma they have already experienced in their home country and on their journey. Children deserve to be with their families outside of cages and they deserve to have their rights protected! Get the latest information on how to stop family separation and detention on the MomsRising blog

 

4. Tell Congress: Families Need Affordable, High-Quality Child Care for All!

BACKGROUND: This week the New York Times released a new poll that is absolutely no surprise to us--one of the top reasons young adults aren't having children is the high cost of childcare. This is NOT good. The lack of steady population growth can negatively impact our economy with a declining workforce. Thankfully, a real solution to the childcare crisis is already here! The Child Care for Working Families Act if passed would help comprehensively address the struggles our families are facing every day to find high-quality, affordable childcare. Urge your representatives in Washington, D.C. to co-sponsor and support the Child Care for Working Families Act to expand access to affordable, high-quality early learning for all our children!

 

5. Share your #FamiliesBelongTogether Photo 

We are so awed and inspired by the amazing mobilizations against family separation and detention that took place across the country this past week. And we'd love to see your photos! Please take a moment to share your #FamiliesBelongTogether snapshots on social media (using that hashtag), and we'll be sure to give them some love! And check out photos on our Facebook page from events across the country. THANK YOU for helping us make some noise that cannot be ignored!

          Quackcast 382 - Suspension of disbelief      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

LISTEN!

 This week we talk about maintaining suspension of disbelief: the way you  have to convince people of the world you comic is set in and keep them  there. Everything you do is done for that, to convince them your  characters make sense and the world works. There's a very mistaken idea  that this ONLY applies to fantasy or SciFi. No, tt applies to ALL  fiction and even non-fiction in the case of stories and jokes from your  friends, biographies and autobiographies. You have to maintain a  suspension of disbelief in all these things in order to fully enjoy and  be a part of the story.
MANY things can knock you out of it or shake  it, not just “magic and dragons” or spaceships and aliens. The story  could be about a New York homicide investigation and you use incorrect  procedure, or your syntax and slang is wrong… Something as simple as  that can break you out of your immersion in the story. A notable  instance from me was when I was reading the stories of Brigadier Gerard  by noted Sherlock Holmes author Arthur Conan Doyle. They're about a  Hussar in Napoleon's Imperial army. Doyle hadn't done his research and  didn't know that a Brigadier in the French army was a very low rank  unlike in the British army, Gerard was also supposed to be a towering,  well built brute of a man, when French hussars were small, lightly built  young men on light horses. Doyle was so fundamentally ignorant of his  subject that suspension of disbelief was a struggle.
We chat about  problems with Avatar, Indiana Jones, and also breaking the fourth wall:  where you deliberately attack suspension of disbelief and in doing so  strengthen it. We offer up some solutions for maintaining suspension of  disbelief.

This week Gunwallace has given us the theme to RIDDICK  Q LOSS TALES. This is fast paced cool, speedy jazz for the active  person, wild and frenetic buzzing trumpets with an awesome rhythm  section. It’s all happening here! The club is jumping and the music’s  pumping!

          Even Before Nominee Named, Left Turns to Court-Packing to Save ‘Democracy’      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
On 07.09.18 01:41 PM posted by Jarrett Stepman Justice Anthony Kennedy’s retirement sent many on the left over the edge. Even before President Donald Trump announced his nominee to replace Kennedy, progressives were lining up in fierce opposition. While it’s understandable that those on the left would be aggressively opposed to adding another advocate of the Constitution to the Supreme Court, some of the proposed counter moves to Trump’s pick range from silly to reckless. A Campus Reform video (https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=11100) showed students at New York University denouncing the Supreme Court pick as “extremist” and “racist” before Trump even made his selection.

07.09.18 09:01 PM In a rant which appeared in Friday’s New York Times, the editorial board of what many consider the global paper of record shrieked “Democrats: Do Not Surrender the Judiciary.” While still trying to comprehend how The Times’ chief muckety-mucks managed to conclude the Judiciary belonged to the Democrats to begin with, I slogged into an editorial which not only belied The Times’ previous claim that “conservatives weaponized the First Amendment,” it murdered it and threw it in the dumpster out back. The Times referred to their screed as a “call to arms.” I say it was as outright an endorsement of violence against everyone to the right of the Castro brothers. In the second paragraph, they urge Democrats “to take a page from The Godfather and go to the mattresses on this issue.” I somehow doubt that in the halls of a publication as august as the “Old Gray Lady,” not one of of the people who green-lit that kicky little turn of phrase hasn’t seen The Godfather.

          Theatre Of Note Presents MARIAN, OR THE TRUE TALE OF ROBIN HOOD      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Theatre of NOTE continues its 2018 season with the West Coast premiere of MARIAN, OR THE TRUE TALE OF ROBIN HOOD, written by Adam Szymkowicz and directed by Christopher Johnson.

MARIAN, OR THE TRUE TALE OF ROBIN HOODis a gender-bending, patriarchy-smashing, hilarious new take on the classic Robin Hood myth. In Szymkowicz's retelling of the tale, Robin Hood is (and has always been) Maid Marian in disguise, and leads a motley group of Merry Men (a few of whom are actually men) against the greedy Prince John. As the poor get poorer and the rich get richer, who will stand for the vulnerable if not Robin? What is the cost of revealing your true self in a time of trouble? Modern concerns and romantic entanglements clash on the battlefield and on the ramparts of Nottingham Castle. A play about selfishness and selflessness and love deferred and the fight. Always the fight. The fight must go on.

MARIAN, OR THE TRUE TALE OF ROBIN HOOD will preview Friday and Saturday, August 17 and 18 at 8pm, and will open on Thursday, August 23 at 8pm and run through Saturday, September 22 at Theatre of NOTE, 1517 N Cahuenga Blvd (just north of Sunset) in Hollywood.

          Exclusive: Susan Egan Talks Reprising Belle In BEAUTY AND THE BEAST in California      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

5-STAR THEATRICALS will soon host Broadway's original "Belle" Susan Egan as she reprises her iconic performance once again (for one last time!) in its final show of its 2017-2018 season, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST.

Triple threat performer Susan Egan is no stranger to theatre audiences. She originated Belle in Beauty and the Beast on Broadway and is now reviving it 20 years later for 5 Star Theatricals. She took time out of her busy rehearsal schedule to discuss the role and explain why it means so very much to her and her career.

How do you feel playing this role again?

It's such a wonderful surprise having the chance to play this role again. It's funny - it honestly feels like I've come full circle - playing 'Belle' all those years ago - breaking that princess image with roles like 'Sally Bowles' in Cabaret - and now coming back to where it all began for me. I think I had to travel far from this in order to have a better perspective of it. I'm wiser now and get to bring that into the character. But I did wonder - and worried - it might feel odd, but it doesn't at all. It feels like the most natural thing in the world!!! This character has been hibernating, but woke right back up in me, and playing her feels like the most comfortable pair of jeans you've ever worn!

Is it your favorite role? If not, what is?

When I worked with director Sam Mendes in Cabaret, he said to me that every actor seems to have the perfect role at the perfect time in their lives: there is always something in the actor's life that can uniquely inform that character, AND there is always something in the character's story that can teach the actor something about their life. I've always found that to be true, so my honest answer is, my favorite role is whatever I'm playing at the moment! I try to mine each character and discover as much as I can, and that's still the case. Even after almost 800 performances as 'Belle,' there is more to learn and I'm loving that process!

Talk a bit about your costars and your director. Are any familiar to you or is it a completely different cast this time around?

Almost everyone in this cast is new to me and I'm LOVING it!! Listen, I was spoiled in the original cast, working with the best actors in the world in each and every role. I was nervous doing another production, and honestly, THAT is what has kept me from doing the role again! BUT Yvette Lawrence Bishop is directing, and for me that was the reason to have faith and say, "yes." She and I were the only two actresses to play 'Belle' in the Los Angeles company of Beauty, so I knew I'd be in wonderful hands. Well, she has outdone herself in casting!!!! I am THRILLED with this company - from Beast and Gaston to every enchanted object and my papa, Maurice - any one of these actors could have (and should have!) played these roles in New York! They are marvelous, as is our extraordinary ensemble; and the nuances Yvette is bringing in her direction are truly magical. These rehearsals feel exactly as they did all those years ago!

Tell us about the changes at Cabrillo. Is Patrick Cassidy taking an active part in this production?

I have never worked at 5 Star Theatricals before - other than a one-night concert last February - but already this has been a lovely experience. It was a bonus that Patrick Cassidy stepped in; he and I have been pals for too many years to count, and it's wonderful having him support this show!!! The experience at 5 Star is truly the best of both worlds: absolute professionalism mixed with the warmth and humor of community theatre. The result for audiences, is that this production will have all the spectacle and pizazz to rival any Broadway tour, and the heart that emanates from a company who truly loves what they do. It's a perfect combination for this show in particular!

What is your favorite musical of all time? Why?

I cannot narrow it down! I love shows that are jewels for what they are - whether a large cast with lots of special effects, or an intimate two-person show that melts your heart. I do happen to have one daughter who is Hamilton obsessed, and so I've loved sharing that show (and it's brilliance) with her.

Who is your favorite composer? Why?

Again, I appreciate the writers who excel in their genre and particularly those who move the medium forward - Lin Manual Miranda, Pasek and Paul - I love where musical theatre has been heading. I've also been lucky enough to become close with so many writers, and I love and am grateful for them all from Alan Menken to Jason Robert Brown. As an actress, I take something from the page and hopefully bring it to life, but the writers .... they bring something into existence from thin air. I'm dazzled and inspired by that!

Talk a bit about doing Putting It Together a few years back...and working with Carol Burnett and John Barrowman...

Only very, very lucky people get to meet their heroes, and it's nearly impossible for those icons live up to the expectation - but Carol Burnett surpassed every hope and dream I could have had. I went to UCLA and won a Carol Burnett scholarship, so to have the chance to work with her (as the only two women in the show!) was beyond anything I could have hoped for. And then, to learn first-hand how warm, gracious, generous, and hilarious she could be .... sigh. She's brilliant, yes, but she's also a cheerleader who celebrates if YOU get the laugh. She's there if you've had a bad day; she congratulates you on a success... I hope I can be a fraction of Carol. As for John Barrowman ....bring it on! He is just about the craziest, most-wonderful person to work alongside - a practical joker and a light.

Anything you care to add about this new production of Beauty?

I seldom take jobs these days that don't have some obvious, strategic reason for doing them - otherwise I'd rather be with my kids! This job I took on a lark, not sure where it would lead - nervous how it might look to the industry - but trusting that it was meant to be. The timing is funny, because I just started a partnership with Broadway's Cinderella Laura Osnes and musical director, Benjamin Rauhala, producing our Broadway Princess Party concerts across the country and beyond. I had thought my princess years were behind me, but because of Laura and Benji the door opened again in my heart, then 5 Star called and offered me this job.

At first I laughed and politely said, "no thank you." I mean it's been 20 years! But I was sitting with my pal, Bambi at lunch and she said "you could totally still do it." I laughed it off, but called Benji in New York and he said, "Do it!" I talked with my husband (who didn't know me yet when I was playing 'Belle' the first time) and his eyes lit up; and my daughters (age 8 and 11) told me to go for it. So I took a leap of faith .... but still not quite sure why. I mean, I had thought I might have an opportunity to share with this cast and crew a bit of how the show originally came together, maybe help bridge the community theatre world and the professional world for them. How silly I was!!! (Oh, the hubris, Susan!) Yvette is currently staging the prologue of the production - her own, new vision of the prologue. It's magical.

She's creating - channeling the spirit of our production from years ago, but taking it to the next level, and the dedication of this cast and crew is marvelous to watch. I love it. THAT'S the reason I'm here. I see it now. To be surrounded by a group of people who love this, and then share that love with audiences. Like the show itself, it's all about love.


BEAUTY AND THE BEAST features music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman & Tim Rice, book by Linda Woolverton (based on the Disney film), musical direction by Dan Redfeld, choreography by Cheryl Baxter and directed by Yvette Lawrence. BEAUTY AND THE BEAST will open on Friday, July 20, 2018 and runs through Sunday, July 29, 2018 at the 1,800-seat Kavli Theatre at the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza, 2100 Thousand Oaks Boulevard in Thousand Oaks.

          Maya Moore is SLAM’s First Female Cover Star in 20 Years      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Female covers Slam Magazine

217-IG-MayaIn 2008, 18-year-old University of Connecticut small forward Maya Moore became the first-ever freshman (male or female) to be named Big East conference player of the year in basketball.

Ten years and four WNBA championships later, Moore is making history again.

SLAM magazine, the self-styled "Basketball Bible," revealed today the cover of its forthcoming September/October issue, featuring the Minnesota Lynx player as just the second female cover star in the magazine's 24-year history—and the first since 1998, when Moore was nine years old.

"A SLAM cover is huge because it’s a very obvious and intentional symbol of where we’re going as a game," said Moore in a video accompanying the cover story, a profile by contributor Steve Marsh. "I see it as a really big move that feels good, feels right, going in the right direction."

The sole issue of SLAM's 216 previous editions with a female cover star arrived in October 1998, with Tennessee Lady Vols standout Chamique Holdsclaw (who would go on to be selected first overall in the 1999 WNBA draft) featured wearing a New York Knicks jersey.

As for why it took two decades and 24 different LeBron James covers to feature another woman, SLAM's overwhelmingly (89 percent) male audience probably has something to do with it. But if the 2018 way of measuring a successful cover reveal serves as any indication, it took Maya Moore's a mere two hours to outpace SLAM's previous cover, featuring Phoenix Suns first-round pick DeAndre Ayton, in terms of Instagram likes.

Although New York’s Capital District has held plenty of pleasant bar and bat mitzvahs, mine was epic. A comic artist sketched for guests during cocktail hour and every attendee left with a copy of X-Men #30: the wedding of Cyclops and Phoenix. The yentas couldn’t stop talking about how great it was.

But after becoming a man, I distanced myself from comics and Judaism. It wasn’t until after college that I rediscovered my passion for sequential art. At the same time, I learned of the Jewish background of many creators. Superman was imagined by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, both members of the tribe. Stan Lee celebrated Passover. So did his uncle, the owner of Marvel comics, who gave him a job. Adam Sandler could have written a Hanukkah song about the industry. While I once felt shame over my heritage, attending middle and high school as one of the only Jews in Voorheesville, New York, I took pride after recognizing the large role we played in the genesis of my favorite art form.

          Finanztip zum Hören: Interview mit Sara Zinnecker über Geldanlage 2018      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Über Sara:Sara ist Wirtschaftsjournalistin bei Finanztip und schreibt über Verbraucherthemen, Geldanlage und Altersvorsorge.Woher kommt dein Interesse an Wirtschaft und Finanzen?Ich hab schon immer super gerne gelesen und bereits als Schülerin immer den Wirtschaftsteil durchgeblättert, fand das aber ganz schön kompliziert. Da kam schon der Wunsch in mir hoch, das alles besser zu verstehen und eines Tages vielleicht sogar besser verständlich aufzuschreiben.Ich habe dann während meines Volontariats bei der Georg-von-Holzbrinck Wirtschaftsschule für Journalisten in verschiedene Redaktionen reingeschnuppert, unter Anderem beim Handelsblatt und der Wirtschaftswoche. Insgesamt war ich mehrere Monate beim Geldressort der Wirtschaftswoche. Der erste Text, den ich dort machen musste, war irgendwas zur Rentenlücke. Das hat mich sofort reingezogen und so bin ich dabeigeblieben.Jessica Schwarzer war damals die Teamleitung, das war ein super Team und man hat sehr viel gelernt.Als Experte für ein Thema muss man sich als Journalist auch auf dem sich wandelnden Arbeitsmarkt keine Sorgen machen.Welche Aufgaben und Themen hattest du beim Handelsblatt?Das ging relativ schnell Richtung Verbraucherthemen. Altersvorsorge, Versicherungen, das sind die Themen, die die Leser interessieren. Da habe ich von Haftpflichtversicherungen über Krankenversicherung bis hin zu Riester alles querbeet mal machen müssen. Das war ein gutes Training.Du bist jetzt seit fast zwei Jahren bei Finanztip. Möchtest du das Verbraucherportal mal kurz vorstellen?Es ist wie gesagt ein Verbraucherportal, also nur online, wir haben keine gedruckte Ausgabe. Wir sind ein Team von Redakteuren und konzipieren ausführliche Ratgeber, die dann kostenlos jedem zur Verfügung stehen, der sich für ein bestimmtes Thema interessiert. Diese Ratgeber werden laufend von uns aktualisiert, es muss aber nicht jeden Tag ein neuer Text auf die Seite. So kann ich lange und tief recherchieren, viel rechnen und viel diskutieren, bis ich das Gefühl habe, das Thema wirklich verstanden zu haben. Das sehe ich als großes Glück.Wir finanzieren uns durch Affiliate Links und haben einen Newsletter mit 300.000 Abonnenten. Du hast im Online-Journalismus drei Möglichkeiten: Entweder du schaltest Werbung auf der Seite, du machst eine Zahlschranke oder du machst das Modell der Affiliate Links. Meine Kollegen von der Monetarisierung versehen unsere Texte mit Links und nehmen mit den Anbietern der verschiedenen Produkte Kontakt auf. Wenn dann die Leser von unserer Seite den Link betätigen, bekommen wir dafür ein bisschen Geld. Unter jedem Text steht auch immer ganz genau, wie wir vorgegangen sind. Finanztip ist gemeinnützig, wir haben keine Gewinnabsicht, sondern wollen einfach nur die Kosten decken. Dein Chef, Hermann-Josef Tenhagen, taucht immer mal wieder als Experte im Fernsehen auf und erzählt dort etwas über Geldanlage. Finanztip ist ja eine echte Erfolgsstory…Ja, Hermann ist unser Gesicht nach außen. Er ist schon so lange im Geschäft und kennt sich so gut aus, dass es für mich und meine Kollegen auch einfach toll ist, mit ihm zu arbeiten.Worüber schreibst du hauptsächlich?Offiziell nennt sich das „Redakteurin im Bereich Bankprodukte“ – nicht sonderlich griffig. Es geht im Moment bei mir um private Geldanlage und private Altersvorsorge, und da vor allem um das Thema Geldanlage-Strategie. Also wie muss ich vorgehen im Bereich Aktien, ETFs, Depotanbieter, etc… Mit letzteren habe ich mich sehr eingehend beschäftigen dürfen.Beim Thema Altersvorsorge geht es zunächst mal darum, den Leuten die Notwendigkeit zu erklären, warum sie überhaupt etwas tun müssen. Das Thema ist ein Dschungel und ich sehe meine Aufgabe darin, die Leute da besser durchzuführen.Thema Depots: Welche Bank hat die beste Benutzerführung in deinen Augen?Ich glaube, dass die onVista Bank in unserem Vergleich ganz gut vornelag. Flatex auch, was die Benutzerführung angeht, die haben dann aber wieder andere Nachteile. Und tatsächlich haben die Online-Banken, die man dann so kennt, das meistens ein bisschen komplizierter. Die sind aber natürlich auch nicht nur auf den Wertpapierhandel spezialisiert.Zum Finanztip-DepotvergleichDu hast auf dem Finanzbarcamp einen Vortrag über ETFs gehalten, bei dem man gemerkt hat, wie gut du dich damit auskennst. Ein großer Vorteil ist, dass du einen direkten Draht zu den ETF-Anbietern hast. Was sind die häufigsten Fragen, die du zum Thema ETFs erhältst?Grundsätzlich spreche ich mit Anbietern und vielen anderen unabhängigen Experten. Ich versuche, mir eine breite Basis zu verschaffen und im Detail zu verstehen, worüber ich schreibe. Der Kontakt zu ETF-Anbietern wie comstage und iShares ist sehr praktisch wenn es um Detailfragen geht. Wie funktioniert ein Swap, wie viel kostet er, wie funktioniert das Ausgeben und Einstampfen von ETF-Anteilen, was machen die Market Maker …das sind Fragen, die ich mir von den Experten erklären lasse. Das will ich nicht aus zweiter Hand nachlesen, sondern da bin ich an der Quelle.Bei den Fragen unserer Leser kommt es auch total auf den Kenntnisstand an. Es gibt die Einsteiger, die haben mal was von ETFs gehört und fragen nach den Kosten oder wollen was über Sparpläne wissen. Und es gibt die, die sich schon etwas besser auskennen und fragen, wie ein synthetischer ETF funktioniert oder was das mit diesem Swap soll.Alle grundlegenden Informationen zu ETFsAlle grundlegenden Informationen zum MSCI WorldDie Frage nach den synthetischen ETFs bekommen wir Finanzblogger auch wieder und wieder gestellt – ich habe auf dem Finanzbarcamp gelernt, dass die Sicherheit fast genauso hoch ist wie bei einem physischen ETF. Ist das so?Ein synthetischer ETF funktioniert im Grunde so, dass der ETF-Anbieter selber gar nicht die Aktien einkauft, die in dem Index stecken, den der ETF abbilden soll. Bei einem MSCI World kauft der Anbieter also nicht 1.600 Aktien sondern vielleicht 30 und das ist z.B. ein DAX-Portfolio. Den eigentlichen Wert des Index bildet eine Bank für ihn ab, sozusagen als sein Tauschpartner. Der ETF-Anbieter geht ein Tauschgeschäft mit der Bank ein und bietet sein Portfolio, das sogenannte Trägerportfolio, der Bank an.Im Gegenzug garantiert ihm die Bank die Wertentwicklung dieses Index.Das Risiko liegt dann eher bei der Bank, weil die besagte Wertentwicklung auch irgendwie hinkriegen muss. Die Bank hinterlegt dafür eine Sicherheit, zum Beispiel sichere Staatsanleihen. Wenn also diese Bank tatsächlich in die Pleite gehen würde und mein ganzer Warenkorb an Aktien, die der ETF umfasst, wäre quasi mit Pleite, dann hätte ich als Anleger Anspruch auf diesen Aktienkorb, den mir mein ETF-Anbieter bietet, beispielsweise die 30 Aktien, und was dann an Wert fehlt zu meiner eigentlichen Wertentwicklung, wird über die Sicherheit (die Staatsanleihen) abgedeckt. Du gehst also eigentlich ein gesichertes Geschäft ein, und das Risiko ist genauso hoch wie bei einem physischen Fonds.Bei der Untersuchung von physischen und synthetischen ETFs sind wir bei Finanztip anders vorgegangen. Wir wollen die Leute dazu bringen, sich zu trauen, mit kleinen Beträgen in diese breitgestreuten ETFs zu investieren und einfach mal anzufangen. Natürlich sind die synthetischen ETFs ein bisschen günstiger und die physischen vielleicht manchmal ein bisschen teuerer, aber auch physische ETFs haben Möglichkeiten, ein bisschen Rendite gutzumachen, indem sie zum Beispiel Wertpapiere verleihen. Jeder ETF-Anbieter macht das ein bisschen anders. Was uns also interessiert ist Wertentwicklung nach Kosten. Wie gut trifft die den MSCI World Netto-Index? Wenn man das mal über fünf Jahre mittelt, kommt erstaunlicherweise heraus, dass es da gar nicht wirklich große Unterschiede gibt. Manchmal läuft ein ETF, der eigentlich höhere Kosten hat, besser als ein günstiger ETF.Deswegen auch der Appell: Wie hoch die laufenden Kosten sind, ist nicht so wichtig. Schaut euch lieber an, wie viel es euch kostet, die ETF-Anteile zu kaufen oder ob ihr Dividenden ausgeschüttet haben wollt oder ob der ETF die Dividenden im Fondsvermögen wieder anlegen soll…Wer sich informieren möchte, was wir bei Finanztip grade gut finden im Bereich ETFs, kann sich das gerne auf der Internetseite angucken. Da stehen dann generell auch alle Rechnungen dabei. Kritik an ETFs – Was davon zu halten istEs gab in den letzten Monaten große Diskussionen über die Umstellung auf kostenpflichtige Sparpläne bei einigen Anbietern. Welche Möglichkeiten habe ich als Anleger, diese Kosten zu sparen?Das ist auch wieder Typsache. Wenn man bequem sein will, muss man die Kröte schlucken. Diese Angebote mit kostenlosen Sparplänen sind meistens zeitlich begrenzt, weil die Anbieter das nutzen um Kunden anzulocken. Die bequemste Variante ist also dabeibleiben und zahlen. Wir haben das mal hochgerechnet: Wenn man einen ETF über 15 Jahre bespart und der würde sich mit durchschnittlich 5% im Jahr entwickeln, dann würde man etwa 400 Euro verlieren wenn der Sparplan nicht kostenlos ist. Wenn man bereit ist, sich ein bisschen Arbeit zu machen, kann man gucken ob es vielleicht bei der gleichen Bank einen anderen ETF-Anbieter gibt, der auch einen ETF auf den gleichen Index anbietet, aber eben kostenlos ist. Das war bei der Consorsbank zum Beispiel so, die haben Comstage jetzt nicht mehr kostenlos drin, dafür aber neu die db x-Trackers. Da könnte man den Comstage-Sparplan also ruhen lassen und stattdessen einen kostenlosen ETF auf den gleichen Index besparen.Wenn das nicht geht, weil deine Bank keinen kostenlosen ETF-Anbieter hat, dann kannst du dir auch ganz viel Arbeit machen und das Depot wechseln. Hier geht es zum Finanztip-Artikel mit den ETF-Sparplan-AlternativenEinige Anbieter kaufen ETF-Anteile zu ungünstigen Kursen. Worauf muss ich als Anleger achten?Wir haben mal versucht über einen Leseraufruf die Kaufkurse der letzten sechs Monate bei verschiedenen Banken zu vergleichen um das herauszufinden. Wir haben dafür beispielhaft den ETF von Comstage auf den MSCI World genommen. Als Referenzkurs haben wir den XETRA-Eröffnungskurs genommen und geguckt, wie weit der Preis abweicht. Dabei haben wir eigentlich festgestellt, dass es keine signifikanten Unterschiede gibt. Man bekommt den mal besser und mal schlechter und im Durchschnitt waren die bei sechs Monaten alle ungefähr gleich. Das ist natürlich nicht representativ, aber es ist zumindest eine Art Indikator.Wer davon nicht überzeugt ist und wissen will, wann man mit dem fairsten Preis rechnen kann: Mit dem fairsten Preis rechne ich, wenn ich an einer Börse kaufe, wo viel Handel getrieben wird. Also lieber auf XETRA als an der Börse München oder Stuttgart, weil da viel mehr Handel drüber läuft und sich die Preise deswegen schneller bilden. Und dann vielleicht nicht unbedingt um neun Uhr morgens kaufen wenn die Börse grade aufmacht, sondern irgendwann am Nachmittag zu einer krummen Uhrzeit, wo im besten Falle die Börsen in New York auch schon offen haben, zum Beispiel um 15:33 Uhr. Dann fange ich den Handel, der da drüben stattfindet, nämlich auch mit ab. Nach meiner Kenntnis macht das momentan aber nur eine Bank so.ETF-Sparpläne: Broker kaufen zu guten Kursen ein!Worauf müssen Anleger bei der Investmentsteuerreform 2018 achten und ab wann müssen sie die neue Steuer bezahlen?Die Investmentsteuerreform hat für den Anleger eigentlich kaum Auswirkungen, außer dass es sich vielleicht ein bisschen verbessert und dass alles einfacher wird. In meinem Artikel steht das alles ganz genau erklärt, aber wer eigentlich nur wissen will, ob er jetzt irgendwas beachten muss, den kann man wirklich beruhigen.Es wird einfach nur etwas umgestellt, die Besteuerungsgrundlage ist eine andere, sie ist künftig für alle Fonds und ETFs die gleiche Grundlage, also egal ob der Fonds im Ausland oder Inland aufgelegt ist, egal ob er Dividenden ausschüttet oder thesauriert, ob er synthetisch repliziert oder physisch. Es gibt eine Pauschale und die gilt für alle. Das bedeutet, dass ich mir künftig als Anleger zumindest aus steuerlicher Sicht überhaupt keine Gedanken mehr machen muss, welchen ETF ich wähle, weil es da keine Unterschiede mehr gibt.Mach dir keine Gedanken über deine Steuererklärung, es wird alles automatisch einbehalten. Wenn du allerdings schon weißt, dass deine Erträge sowieso nicht über deine 801 Euro Freibetrag im Jahr kommen, dann stell auf alle Fälle einen Freistellungsauftrag, dann wird gar nichts einbehalten und dann musst du auch keine Steuererklärung dafür machen.Angenommen du hast einen ausschüttenden ETF und bekommst zweimal jährlich Dividende gutgeschrieben. Dann gibt es die Pauschale, auf die 25% Abgeltungssteuer einbehalten wird. Wenn du aber über die 801 Euro nicht drüberkommst, dann wird überhaupt nichts einbehalten.Und wenn das Verrechnungskonto leer ist, in dem Moment wo das Finanzamt das Geld einziehen will, ist die Bank in der Pflicht, das nachzureichen – die müssen dich dann anschreiben, dass du dein Konto denkst, selbst da musst du also keine Angst haben!Man kann natürlich auch einfach einen ausschüttenden Fonds nehmen, dann ist da immer ein bisschen Geld auf dem Verrechnungskonto und dann zahlt man die Steuer aus der Dividende direkt.Hier geht es zum Artikel zur Steuerreform und RechenbeispielenWorauf sollte man bei der Aufstellung des risikoarmen Teils eines Portfolios achten?Die Finanztip-Linie wäre jetzt Tagesgeld und Festgeld in einer Staffelung, das ist zur Zeit die sicherste Art der Anlage. Und dann muss man sich einfach überlegen, in welchem Verhältnis man Aktien und sichere Komponente gewichtet.Bei Gold haben wir mal Renditeentwicklungen und Schwankungsanfälligkeit untersucht, und daraus den Schluss gezogen, dass Gold sich wirklich nicht als langfristige Geldanlage eignet, denn über die letzten 42 Jahre hätte eine Aktienanlage eine durchschnittliche Jahresrendite von etwa 8% erreicht und Gold nur ungefähr 4% – dabei aber stärker geschwankt als die Aktien.Hier geht es zum Artikel über Gold von SaraThema Riester/Rürup. Lohnt sich ein Vehikel wie Riester in Anbetracht der Kosten und Laufzeiten?Für jemanden, der überlegt, einen Riester neu abzuschließen, gibt es tatsächlich günstige Verträge, man muss sie nur finden. Die allermeisten sind nicht günstig. Erste Bürgerpflicht ist daher informieren!Bei Finanztip oder anderen Verbraucherseiten findet man Infos, welche Verträge günstig sind.Seit Anfang 2017 ist es vorgeschrieben, dass Anbieter ein sogenanntes Produktinformationsblatt zur Verfügung stellen müssen, in dem alle anfallenden Kosten ganz transparent als Effektivkostenquote ausgewiesen werden. Diese Quote kann man direkt von der Rendite abziehen und weiß dann, wie teuer der Vertrag wirklich ist.Riestern mit Fonds – So geht esUnd wenn ich jetzt seit Jahren einen Riestervertrag rumliegen habe und den bespare – wie komme ich da wieder raus?Niemals kündigen! Bei Riester kann man zwar kündigen, muss dann aber alle Vorteile, die man genossen hat, also staatliche Förderung, komplett zurückbezahlen. Das ist ein ganz ganz schlechter Deal.Wenn man nicht mehr einzahlen möchte, kann man den Riestervertrag auf beitragsfrei stellen.Hier findest Du einen weiteren Artikel von Sara über Riester-VerträgeStichwort Kryptowährung. Wie viele Anfragen bekommt ihr zum Thema Bitcoin?Interessanterweise kriegen wir dazu nicht viele Anfragen. Vielleicht sind die Leser schon zu vernünftig!Wir haben trotzdem in einfachen Worten aufgeschrieben, was das eigentlich ist, und wie eine Blockchain funktioniert.Die Message ist hauptsächlich: Macht das bitte nicht. Man weiß nicht, wie das weitergeht, es funktioniert nicht als Zahlungsmittel im Moment, es ist nicht abgesichert, da steckt keine Zentralbank dahinter, die den Wert garantiert, es gibt keinen materiellen Wert… Man sollte sich nicht drauf verlassen, damit seine Rente finanzieren zu können. Wer allerdings einfach mal mitmachen will, der kann natürlich mal 100 Euro in die Hand nehmen, aber dann ist das wirklich so Geld, was man nicht braucht und was einem nicht wehtut.Hier geht es zu Saras Artikel über den Bitcoin-BoomWie legst du denn selber an?Ich befolge ganz brav die Empfehlungen von Finanztip. Ich habe ein bisschen Geld in einem ETF auf den MSCI World und auch ein, zwei Sparpläne, wo ich noch ein bisschen streue. Und ich habe Festgeld und Tagesgeld.Wordshuffle:Fintech – Ein großes Ding, es gibt ganz viele neue Anbieter, die versuchen Finanzdienstleistungen smarter und transparenter zu machen. Ich persönlich bin vielleicht dafür schon zu alt, ich lade mir nicht jede App sofort runter. Reisen – Ja, Reisen ist klasse! Ich reise supergerne und finde es immer spannend, zu sehen wie Menschen anderswo an Dinge herangehen, wie die kommunizieren… man lernt immer unglaublich viel.Crash – Ich hab noch nie einen Crash am eigenen Leib miterleben müssen, von daher bin ich lustigerweise sehr wenig emotional gegenüber diesem Wort. Für mich ist das eher ein Phänomen, das man beschreiben kann.Geldpolitik – Finde ich total spannend. Also überhaupt zu kapieren, was ist Geld, wie funktioniert Geld, wie kommt Geld auf den Markt. Aber vor allem auch, wie schafft es ein Organ wie eine Zentralbank, das stabil zu halten.Frauen und Geldanlage – Ich habe überhaupt kein Problem mit Geldanlage. Und auch das Team, wo ich gearbeitet habe, das waren mehr Frauen als Männer. Dass das so eine Männerdomäne wäre, kann ich jetzt aus meinem persönlichen Umfeld gar nicht bestätigen.Rockmusik – Oje, leider ist das nicht so meins. Ich bin eher für Akustikgitarre und Jazz.Bayern – Da bin ich geboren und habe viele Jahre meines Lebens dort verbracht. Schön ist es in Bayern!Glück – Also ich glaube, es ist ein großes Glück wenn man in seinem Leben einen Beruf findet, der einen auch erfüllt. So wie ich das Glück habe mit meinem Schreiben und dem Transportieren wichtiger Botschaften in einfacher Sprache – das ist für mich schon ein großes Glück. Ich sehe das nicht als selbstverständlich an.Zur Investmentsteuerreform 2018 https://finanzrocker.net/geldanlage-2018-etfs-gold-riester-bitcoin-interview-mit-sara-zinnecker-von-finanztip/

A Week On The Wrist gives us a chance to find out what it's like to actually live with a watch, albeit for a limited time. Sometimes it's a watch that's the equivalent of a daily driver, and working with it gives us a chance to see how it holds up under real world conditions in terms of legibility, general aesthetic appeal, accuracy, and the like. Sometimes, however, we get a watch in to test drive which puts us in the position of a car journalist being thrown the keys for a Bugatti Chiron for the weekend, and such a watch is this one: the Bulgari Octo Finissimo Minute Repeater Carbon, a $160,000 superwatch that not only turns quite a few conventions about luxury watchmaking upside down, but also flies in the face of conventional wisdom about what high end watchmaking from Bulgari is all about as well. This is the first time we've done A Week On The Wrist with any minute repeater – we've covered a rattrapante, and a perpetual calendar, but never a repeater, and this is one of the most unusual minute repeaters anyone's making right now.

          US stocks trade higher amid earnings, data      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

New York, July 11 (IANS) US stocks traded on an upbeat note on Tuesday as investors were digesting a slew of corporate earnings and economic data.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average jumped 153.26 points, or 0.62 per cent, to 24,929.85. The S&P 500 was up 9.34 points, or 0.34 per cent, to 2,793.51, Xinhua news agency reported.

The Nasdaq Composite Index climbed 14.23 points, or 0.18 per cent, to 7,770.43.

Shares of PepsiCo rose 3.74 per cent around mid-day after the company released better-than-expected quarterly revenue and profit.

Although concerns over trade tensions between the US and other major economies continued to weigh on the market, investors were likely to turn their attention to earnings reports as earnings season kicked off, experts said.

On the economic front, US small business optimism index fell 0.6 point from May to 107.2 in June, the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) reported on Tuesday.

The reading was still high by historical standards, as business owners continued to create new jobs and increase compensation, according to NFIB. The index measures the opinion of small businesses on the economic conditions in the country.

          This strategy could help younger at-risk students master math      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
math researchLow-income minority kindergartners learn math better when taught in small groups, according to a new report from University of Michigan (U-M) researchers. This type of instructional approach not only has a positive impact on achievement, but can help bridge the gap with higher-income peers, the researchers say in a report. Robin Jacob, co-director of the U-M Youth Policy Lab, and Brian Jacob, professor of education and public policy, evaluated 655 kindergarten students in the one-year math enrichment High 5s program in 24 low-income elementary schools in New York City. The High 5s program aims to provide a consistent instructional approach and alignment of content from the pre-K math curriculum to kindergarten, and it is designed as a hands-on program to engage young students. They discovered that students who participated in the program received 30 percent more time on math instruction with more individualized attention, and were exposed to a wider range of advanced math topics and more interactive activities. Researchers were able to pinpoint a variety of ways the High 5s program helped students strengthen their math skills: 1. High5s students received an additional 75 minutes of math instruction compared to students in the control group--an increase of about 30 percent. 2. The High5s program used a different instructional approach. Students in the kindergarten control classrooms worked mostly in whole-group instruction or completed seat work, while High5s students worked in small group activities using interactive approaches and a variety of manipulatives. They also learned slightly more advanced mathematical topics, along with a wider range of topics in general. 3. Instructional climates differed, too, and students seemed to enjoy High5s math activities, with facilitators in those activities more likely to ask open-ended questions, encourage reflection, and differentiate instruction. The achievement gap between low-income children and their higher-income peers is already noticeable in kindergarten, and it widens over time. Early intervention is one way to address that gap. The report references past research showing that math skills are closely related to later math achievement, reading achievement, high school completion, and college attendance. "By intervening early, the High 5s program narrowed the achievement gap between low-income children and their higher-income peers at the end of kindergarten," says Robin Jacob. Students enrolled in the High 5s program met in groups of four, with a trained facilitator, for 30 minutes three times a week. Activities were delivered in a game-like format and intended to be fun, engaging, interactive, and developmentally appropriate.

          Trump Pardons Oregon Ranchers Whose Convictions Triggered Malheur Occupation      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
“The Hammonds are devoted family men, respected contributors to their local community, and have widespread support from their neighbors, local law enforcement, and farmers and ranchers across the West.” On Tuesday, July 10, President Donald Trump pardoned two Oregon ranchers whose convictions of torching public lands triggered an armed occupation at an eastern Oregon wildlife refuge in 2016.  Dwight Hammond, 76, and his son Steven, 49, had a long history of conflict with the U.S. government which culminated in their convictions for setting fires, one in 2001 and another in 2006, on federal lands. They were each sentenced to five-year prison terms, which attracted the attention of other anti-government protesters, including Ammon and Cliven Bundy. In January, 2016, an armed group of sympathizers, including Ammon Bundy, took over the Malheur Wildlife Refuge in eastern Oregon. Nearly a month later, a total of 26 people, including Bundy, were arrested on federal charges of conspiracy. The charges were ultimately dropped against Bundy and nearly all of the other militants. The New York Times reports that during Tuesday morning's media briefing, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced that Trump had pardoned the Hammonds. “The Hammonds are multi-generation cattle ranchers in Oregon imprisoned in connection with a fire that leaked onto a small portion of neighboring public grazing land,” said  Sanders. “The Hammonds are devoted family men, respected contributors to their local community, and have widespread support from their neighbors, local law enforcement, and farmers and ranchers across the West.” Reporters Eileen Sullivan and Julie Turkewitz of the Times write, "The pardons appear to represent the Trump administration’s support of ranchers in the battle over federal lands and also undo an Obama administration appeal to impose longer sentences for the Hammonds." …

          Here's Why Right-Wingers Are So Threatened by Hearing Foreign Languages in the Trump Era      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Xenophobia runs deep among the far-right.

In many countries, studying foreign languages in public school systems is not only encouraged—it is mandatory, which is why so many Swedish, German, Norwegian and Dutch high school students have learned to speak English fluently even though it isn’t their native language. But among many right-wing Republicans in the U.S., being monolingual is considered a badge of honor. And in the Trump era, some ugly racial incidents demonstrate that speaking a language other than English in public can be met with verbal abuse.

In May, New York City-based attorney and strong Trump supporter Aaron Schlossberg went into a xenophobic anti-immigrant tirade in a Mid-town Manhattan restaurant, the Fresh Kitchen, when he overheard an employee speaking Spanish with two of the customers. Angrily, Schlossberg ranted, “My guess is they’re not documented; so, my next call is to ICE to have each one of them kicked out of my country. If they have the balls to come here and live off of my money—I pay for their welfare, I pay for their ability to be here—the least they can do is speak English.”

More recently on July 4, a Petaluma, California man named Larry Lappin showed his ignorance when he heard the family of his neighbor, Ivette Celedon—a third-generation U.S. citizen of Mexican descent—enjoying some Latin music in their backyard. Lappin was furious; as he saw it, listening to music that was performed in Spanish on the 4th of July was disrespectful and unpatriotic. And he angrily confronted them, insisting they had no right to “disrespect my fucking country” by listening to Spanish-language music on America’s Independence Day.

Lappin later apologized after a smartphone video of his rant went viral. But he certainly wasn’t the first American xenophobe to feel threatened by the use of Spanish in public, and he won’t be the last. To some racists, using any language other than English in the U.S.—even as a secondary or tertiary language—is akin to burning the flag.

Democrat Barack Obama found out that out during his first presidential campaign in 2008, when Bill Bennett and other knuckle-dragging Republicans were deeply offended because he asserted that foreign-language study should be a much higher priority in American schools. Obama stressed that although immigrants to the U.S. should be able to speak English as well as possible, he believed that Americans would be much better off from an education standpoint if they could achieve fluency in Spanish, French and other languages.

Obama asserted, “I agree that immigrants should learn English. But instead of worrying about whether immigrants can learn English—they’ll learn English—you need to make sure your child can speak Spanish. You should be thinking about how can your child become bilingual. We should have every child speaking more than one language.”

The president-to-be also asserted, “It’s embarrassing when Europeans come over here. They all speak English, they speak French, they speak German. And then, we go over to Europe—and all we can say is ‘Merci beaucoup.’”

Nothing Obama said was even remotely offensive. In fact, Obama was spot on: achieving fluency in two or more foreign languages would be great for American students from an educational standpoint just as Dutch students benefit when they’ve achieved fluency in English and German.

But xenophobia runs deep among far-right wingnuts, who see the use of Spanish, Mandarin and other foreign languages in public as a threat to the English language. In 2012’s Republican presidential primary, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich ran an attack ad in South Carolina that lambasted Mitt Romney for being proficient in French.  According to Gingrich’s ad, Romney’s French-speaking skills meant that he didn’t deserve the GOP’s nomination (which, of course, Romney received anyway before losing to President Obama in the general election).

Fear of foreign languages is one thing that Republicans often have in common with fascist dictators like Italy’s Benito Mussolini in Italy and Spain’s Francisco Franco. In Spain, Franco was bitterly opposed to Spaniards learning any language other than Spanish; speaking Catalan in the streets of Barcelona was illegal under the Franco regime. Mussolini, similarly, wanted Italians to speak Italian exclusively—and this type of hyper-nationalism is alive and well among right-wing Americans like Schlossberg and Lappin who become enraged when they hear a language other than English spoken in public.

Although Trump is married to a Slovenian woman, his supporters love the aggressive hyper-nationalism he has championed. And when Latinos are harassed or abused merely for having private conversations in Spanish in New York City or Petaluma, California, it is a symptom of Trumpism and the type of fearful xenophobia he has helped create.

Ideally, foreign-language study in the U.S. should be mandatory and start as early as kindergarten just as studying English from an early age is mandatory in parts of Europe. Spanish should be a requirement, given the language’s importance—with studying German, French and other languages encouraged as well. There is no reason why, as Obama suggested, American students shouldn’t be able to graduate from high school fluent in two, three or more languages.

The U.S. is in no danger whatsoever of losing its status as a predominantly English-speaking country. But encouraging American students to achieve fluency in Spanish and other foreign languages would certainly benefit them from an educational and employment standpoint—even it does trouble some conservatives quite deeply.

          The Trump Administration's Human Cages Aren't New — They Have a Long and Shameful American History      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Our forebears once flocked in staggering numbers to “human zoos,” where thousands of kidnapped natives from various countries were displayed.

When Donald Trump recently accused “illegal immigrants” of wanting to “pour into and infest our country,” there was an immediate outcry. After all, that verb, infest, had been used by the Nazis as a way of dehumanizing Jews and communists as rats, vermin, or insects that needed to be eradicated.

Nobody, however, should have been surprised. The president has a long history of excoriating people of color as animal-like. In 1989, for instance, reacting to the rape of a white woman in New York’s Central Park, he took out full-page ads in four of the city’s major papers (total cost: $85,000) calling for the reinstatement of the death penalty and decrying “roving bands of wild criminals roaming our streets.” He was, of course, referring to the five black and Latino youngsters accused of that crime for which they were convicted -- and, 10 years late, exonerated when a serial rapist and murderer finally confessed.

Trump never apologized for his rush to judgment or his hate-filled opinions, which eventually became the template for his attacks on immigrants during the 2016 election campaign and for his presidency. He has declared many times that some people aren’t actually human beings at all but animals, pointing, in particular, to MS-13 gang members. At a rally in Tennessee at the end of May, he doubled down on this sort of invective, goading a frenzied crowd to enthusiastically shout that word -- “Animals!” -- back. In that way, he made those present accomplices to his bigotry. Nor are his insults and racial tirades mere rhetorical flourishes. They’ve had quite real consequences. It’s enough to look at the cages where undocumented children separated from their families at or near the U.S.-Mexico border have been held as if they were indeed animals -- reporters and others regularly described one of those detention areas as being like a “zoo” or a “kennel” -- not to mention their parents who are also trapped behind wire barriers, even if arousing far less attention and protest.

A History of Caged Humans

All the president’s furious contemporary rants and rallies, along with those cages and detainee centers, have certainly brought Nazism to mind for some, but it might be more illuminating to think of them as echoing an earlier moment in history when comparing dark-skinned humans to animals would hardly have caused a stir.  It would have been considered part of normal discourse, in both Europe and the United States.

Indeed, in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, millions of Europeans and Americans considered it perfectly natural to treat certain members of our species quite literally as if they were beasts. They were unfazed, so the historical record suggests, by the idea of seeing such “animals,” such oddities, displayed in literal zoo cages at boisterous public events. It may now be hard to believe, but our forebears once flocked in staggering numbers to “human zoos,” where thousands of natives kidnapped from Asia, Africa, and Latin America were exposed to scrutiny, curiosity, and derision, as well as, sometimes, undergoing scientific experimentation.

Today, such mindboggling violations of human rights have almost entirely vanished from public memory. I had only vaguely heard of human zoos myself, before I became obsessed with them when research for my latest novel, Darwin’s Ghosts, led me into the world of human menageries. I discovered that the phenomenon had been launched in the most modest of ways.

One hundred and seventy years ago -- 1848, a year of revolutions across the globe -- a Hamburg fishmonger, Claus Hagenbeck, decided to charge customers to take a peek at some Arctic seals swimming in a large tub in the backyard of his house. Soon enough, that first timid entrepreneurial step developed into a highly lucrative family business exhibiting wild animals, while feeding growing demands for wondrous beasts to populate circuses and fill the private collections of monarchs and other wealthy individuals.

In the end, animals were not enough. By the early 1870s, in conjunction with the Jardin d’Acclimatation in Paris and American impresarios like P.T. Barnum, the Hagenbeck family started dabbling in displaying “savages” from the farthest corners of the planet. The first victims of this desire to bring exemplars from the rest of humanity to viewers in the West were Laplanders, displayed in a setting meant to look like one of their villages. (A similar urge gave birth to the dioramas that soon began to flourish at museums of natural history.)

That first exhibition in Hamburg of “the little men and women” of Lapland proved so sensational -- tours were organized to Berlin, Leipzig, and other German cities -- that the desire to see more “primitive” humans soon became insatiable. Scavengers who had previously specialized in locating and bringing African and Asian wildlife to Europe and the United States were now instructed to be on the lookout for similarly exotic human wildlife. They should not be, it was quickly stipulated, so monstrous as to disgust audiences, but neither should they be so beautiful as to cease to be bizarre.

The Laplanders were followed by a multitude of indigenous inhabitants of the planet forcibly removed from their habitats: Eskimos, Cingalese, Kalmuks, Somalis, Ethiopians, Bedouins, Nubians from the Upper Nile, aboriginal Australians, Zulu warriors, Mapuche Indians, Andaman Islanders from the South Pacific, head-hunters from Borneo. The list went on and on, as those human zoos spread from Germany to France, England, Belgium, Spain, Italy, and the United States, all of which -- what a coincidence! -- just happened to be the globe’s imperial powers of that era.

Representatives of ethnic groups from all over the planet soon became an expectable feature of then-popular World’s Fair pavilions. Besides providing entertainment for the whole family -- they might be thought of as that moment’s equivalents of reality TV shows -- those exhibitions were proclaimed “educational” experiences by the enterprises cashing in on them. Such tableaus of “prehistoric” people offered a way for affluent visitors to gawk at and be amazed by the bizarre habits of the bizarre inhabitants of the faraway lands that their countries were incorporating with great violence into “civilization” via colonial dominion. In fact, that violence was such that some of the native populations on display, like diverse groups of Patagons from Tierra del Fuego at the southern tip of Latin America, were already then on the verge of becoming extinct. One of the draws of seeing living specimens of those strange men, women, and children was to do so before their last remnants, along with their languages and their cultures, disappeared from the face of the Earth.

Even if you were among the millions of Americans and Europeans who couldn’t personally visit such folk displays, ethnic villages, and human zoos, you could still inexpensively and vicariously experience those exotic others. The images of the captives -- who, of course, had been photographed without their consent -- were commercialized on an industrial scale. The postcards upon which their faces and bodies were flaunted soon became an everyday feature of domestic life, one more way that the human zoo was normalized, whitewashed, and sent into the home with barely a thought about the horrors, the suffering being visited on those captives or how their children, husbands, wives, mothers, fathers, relatives, and friends, left behind, were dealing with the trauma of having their loved ones torn from their midst.

Nor were such acts repudiated by the most illustrious members of those “advanced” societies. Quite the opposite, many of the abductions had been financed by scientific institutions eager to discover how such specimens might fit into Darwin’s theory of evolution. Their research, in turn, was backed by government officials more than ready to show their respect and support for scholars looking into the origins of humanity. Were those Africans and South Americans entirely human or did they constitute missing links in the great chain of beings that became our species? Eminent naturalists and doctors debated just such matters, gave lectures on them, wrote treatises about them, and (in what then passed for scientific experimentation) poked at or into the bodies of those who had made the mistake of being born far from the so-called civilized world.

The Ota Bengas of Today

Today, of course, human zoos and the medical experiments on live human beings that went with them are inconceivable. The consciousness of humanity, enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights adopted by the U.N. 70 years ago, has made such practices disgraceful and intolerable. Who today could stomach the fate of Ota Benga, a pygmy from the Congo who was housed with the primates at New York’s Bronx Zoo in 1906 and committed suicide a decade later when he realized that he would never be able to return to his native land? Who among us would bring their children to gape at “missing links” like Thai dwarfs, Amazonian Indians, or Sudanese villagers as if they were freaks of nature, not human beings?

Unfortunately, congratulations are not (yet) in order, given how often the same racist impulses resurface today, and not only in the president’s intemperate diatribes equating humans and animals (none of which have so far provoked indignation in most of his followers). A similar dehumanization of strangers with darker faces and skins appears to animate current anti-immigrant sentiments in many lands, a desire to escape “infestation” from abroad and maintain mythical versions of racial purity and national identity. Are we really that removed from the spectators who watched their fellow humans abused in zoo-like conditions a century or so ago without blinking or being disturbed?

In retrospect, what’s most sobering about the human zoos of an earlier time is how oblivious those who participated in such degrading spectacles were to the crimes being committed before their eyes. Many of them would have judged themselves decent, enlightened citizens, shining advocates of progress, science, and freedom. And yet, in Berlin in 1882, the police had to be called in to quell a riot by visitors to an exhibition of 11 Kaweshkar natives abducted from Tierra del Fuego. Thousands of customers, having imbibed copious gallons of beer, began to stone the hostages, demanding that they mate in public. Or consider the fate of two female Kaweshkar whose sexual organs, after they died in captivity, were carved from their dead bodies and sent to be examined by a prominent German researcher interested in discovering how such creatures might be distinct from European women.

So many decades later, it’s easy enough to condemn such offenses. More difficult and painful is to ask what injustices are happening now that we take to be as normal as human zoos (or the disempowerment of women and child slavery) were just a few generations ago. Is it the thoughtless annihilation of immeasurable species, the plundering of nature, the loss of wisdom stored for millennia by ethnic groups that are fast disappearing? Is it the punitive incarceration of millions, so many lives wasted? Is it our incredibly counterproductive “war on drugs” that unnecessarily ravages cities, nations, and lives? Or our inability to rid ourselves of the plague of nuclear proliferation, the brutality of widespread hunger, America’s endless wars, the detention centers for immigrants and their children in this country, the spectacle of undocumented minors shut up in cages and crying for their parents, or the overflowing refugee camps elsewhere in the world? And what of so many children displaced in their war-torn lands or incarcerated in poverty? Where is the indignation about them? Who marches to have them released from their structural captivity? And who even noticed the 10,000 children murdered or maimed in armed conflicts in 2017 alone, deaths invisible to us if you didn’t happen to catch a brief news item quickly forgotten?

In reality, those human zoos of the not-so-distant past pose a terrifying question for us: What everyday horrors of our world will our descendants look back on with disgust in the future? How, they will wonder, could their ancestors have been so blind as to condone such transgressions against humaneness and humanity?

Nos bastidores, reuniões envolvendo os Cavaleiros de Malta, agentes russos do FSB, sociedades secretas asiáticas e outros, estão preparando o caminho para um anúncio econômico, que muito bem poderia ser um genuíno Jubileu acompanhado de um novo sistema financeiro, de acordo com fontes envolvidas nas negociações. Uma vez que as negociações estão em andamento, os detalhes ainda precisam ser discutidos, embora já exista um consenso geral, dizem as fontes.

A chave pode ser a iminente tomada da Suprema Corte pelo Presidente dos EUA, Donald Trump, que abriria caminho para julgamentos de crimes de guerra e o reconhecimento jurídico de um novo sistema financeiro. quando for convocado em Outubro, disseram fontes do Pentágono.

Nessa frente, a "batalha se intensifica, na medida em que a super elite de Trump deteve Brett Kavanaugh, agente de Bush e pode ter sucesso na nomeação de uma mulher ou de um indígena [nativo americano]", disseram as fontes.

A situação chegou ao ponto do New York Times realmente ter anunciado de táticas de “Poderoso Chefão” e rebelião armada, pelo fato de Trump e seus apoiadores estarem preparados para assumirem o controle da Suprema Corte.

Não se surpreendam se em breve a polícia militar ocupar os oficiais desse jornal de traição, uma vez que eles tem de forma consistente e criminosa suprimido a verdade sobre o assassinato de 3.000 nova-iorquinos, em 11 de Setembro de 2001, movimento esse que já  estaria muito atrasado.

Também, temos o ex-secretário de Defesa dos Estados Unidos (e traidor) Leon Panetta, dizendo que os líderes europeus "estão morrendo de medo" de que as tropas americanas sejam retiradas da Europa.

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/trump-us-troops-europe-leaders-scared-eu-panetta-germany-uk-france-baltic-a8437111.html?utm_source=reddit.com

Realmente, devem estar morrendo de medo, já que em sua maioria são criminosos de guerra que já deveria ter sido presos e possivelmente executados se os militares americanos não estivessem a protegê-los.

Agora, a imprensa corporativa, também, está seguindo este boletim informativo (lembre-se de que leram aqui primeiro), ao relatar que a OTAN/NATO e o sistema do pós-guerra estão em perigo mortal, quando temos a Bloomberg informando que a chanceler alemã Angela Merkel está decidida a "lutar pela sobrevivência das instituições globais pós-Segunda Guerra Mundial".

http://www.bakersfield.com/ap/national/merkel-warns-of-worldwide-financial-crisis/article_2dff7b52-12a8-5a67-86b0-e4b9324607aa.html

Também, temos a prostituta khazariana, o bardo da corte, o roqueiro irlandês Bono, alertando centenas de funcionários da ONU que as Nações Unidas, a União Européia, a OTAN e o Grupo dos Sete estão “sob ataque”.

https://www.yahoo.com/news/prime-minister-honors-87-irish-un-peacekeepers-died-175547438.html

Estão sob ataque, porque sua liderança  está conspirando para matar 90% da humanidade, e sua incompetência está levando à maior destruição da vida no planeta, desde que os dinossauros foram extintos, há 65 milhões de anos.

É claro que, como sempre, a máfia khazariana está tentando matar, mentir e subornar para permanecer no poder. Sua mais recente vítima foi o presidente do grupo chinês HNA, Wang Jian que, na semana passada, notícias afirmam que "caiu para a morte ao posar para uma foto na França".

https://www.rt.com/news/431745-hna-chairman-dead-france-wang-jian/

Fontes do Mossad dizem que "não foi um acidente" e que ele foi "afastado, porque estava prestes a testemunhar numa audiência fechada sobre as impropriedades ainda a serem reveladas do Deutsche Bank, possivelmente suficiente para liquidar com o banco. Em certos círculos, sabe-se que a rede  de Hotéis Hilton é um serviço global de lavagem de  dinheiro escuro e que  a família de Wang recebeu uma ordem de mordaça.

“Como sabem, o Deutsche Bank é um estabelecimento George H.W. Bush-Sherff Quarto Reich”, explicou uma fonte da CIA.

É provável que a morte de Wang esteja ligada à execução no Japão, na semana passada, do mandante do ataque com gás Sarin ao metrô de Tóquio e guru do culto Aum, Shoum Asahara e seis de seus principais tenentes, segundo fontes japonesas de extrema direita, próximas ao Imperador.

O governo escravo japonês de Shinzo Abe teme que as verdades sobre o ataque de gás ao metrô, bem como o o assassinato em massa, o evento nuclear e tsunami de Fukushima, sejam divulgados em breve, agora que a Coréia do Norte está cortando suas ligações com os mafiosos khazarianos, dizem as fontes. A execução da liderança da Aum os impede de que sejam questionados por terceiros sobre o que realmente aconteceu.

A conexão com o Deutsche Bank, provavelmente, teria a ver com a lavagem de dinheiro de drogas. Vários jornalistas japoneses foram assassinados depois de informar que o culto de Aum Shinrikyo - aquele do ataque ao metrô - estava vendendo anfetaminas norte-coreanas para gângsteres japoneses, como confirmam fontes do sindicato Yamaguchi Gumi. Além disso, todos os depoimentos e provas sobre o negócio de drogas ilegais, foram retirados do processo de julgamento relacionado à Aum, há décadas.

Esse escritor já foi abordado por um ex-escravo sexual relacionado com a Aum, que disse que a principal hierarquia do culto envolvida nos ataques de gás eram os gângsteres norte-coreanos e que acima deles havia "judeus do tipo Al Qaeda". Aum era a fachada da Igreja de Unificação do Reverendo Moon, que há muito trabalhou no negócio internacional de narcóticos e de armas com os nazistas sob o comando do Fuhrer Bush, disseram as fontes da direita japonesa.

Além disso, no dia do ataque com gás ao metrô, em 20 de Março de 1995, balões da Coréia do Norte carregando um “líquido não identificado” aterrissaram em todo o Japão, levando a mensagem de que esse ataque era “vingança pelo centésimo aniversário do assassinato da Imperatriz Myung Sung”. Myung Sung desejava estreitas relações com a Rússia, a fim de combater as tentativas japonesas de colonizar a Coréia e, por isso os japoneses a assassinaram e começaram a colonizar a Coréia. Também, vale a pena notar que o culto Aum possuía dezenas de milhares de seguidores russos.

Em geral, a situação é muito complicada e envolve muitas pessoas, muitas delas ainda no cargo que, somente, a criação de uma comissão da verdade pode ser a única maneira da opinião pública mundial descobrir o que realmente aconteceu.


Nessa frente, coreanos e japoneses devem notar que o recém-eleito presidente mexicano López Obrador, está contemplando a criação de comissões da verdade para resolver a guerra às drogas naquele país. Legalizar e regular as drogas, ao mesmo tempo em que oferece anistia aos chefões das drogas, seria um grande golpe para a máfia das drogas de Bush. O México, agora, é o mais recente dominó a cair, na medida em que a máfia khazariana perde o controle de país após país.

O próximo dominó a cair bem que poderia ser o Brasil. Lá, a governança cleptocrática do presidente Michel Temer está cambaleando sob o peso de uma greve de caminhoneiros de dez dias que está sendo apoiada agora pelos trabalhadores do petróleo. Por sua vez, os militares não seguiram ordens para acabar com a greve. A raiva pelo saque do Brasil em nome de mestres estrangeiros (erroneamente rotulado como “privatização”) é a principal razão para essa greve.

“A luta continua para retomada de poder da direita e reverter a liberalização econômica, abrindo as portas para a possibilidade de um tipo diferente de sociedade”, foi como Alistair Farrow, do Socialist Worker News, descreveu a situação.

https://socialistworker.co.uk/art/46690/Truckers+in+Brazil+show+the+power+of+workers+after+strikes+humiliate+Temer

Com a queda do regime criminoso brasileiro, a resistência khazariana remanescente seria o regime alemão de Angela Merkel, o regime escravo francês do presidente Emmanuel Macron, o regime escravo de Shinzo Abe no Japão e, claro, o arqui criminoso e nazista Benjamin Netanyahu, de Israel. Uma vez que eles sejam removidos, será o fim de jogo.

Nesta frente, precisamos lembrar aos leitores que, durante seus anos como empresário, toda vez que Donald Trump ia à falência, eram os Rothschilds que o resgatava. Na semana passada, um agente do Mossad enviou a seguinte mensagem ao escritor: “Diga ao seu amigo que ele está 100% correto com sua analogia de Trump com ‘A Família'. Eles o apoiaram, não apenas financeiramente, mas também abrindo portas difíceis, permitindo que ele se misturasse com as elites, desde os dias de Roy Cohn. 

Todavia, os agentes do Mossad não são todos maus. Dentro dele, existem aqueles que estão manobrando eventos em favor de Trump e ajudando-o a drenar o pântano. ”

Eles também enviaram a seguinte foto mostrando Trump em Teerã, no Irã, em 1979, onde ele planejava abrir um cassino, antes que a revolução iraniana interrompesse seus planos.

O que isto significa é que, enquanto a oligarquia khazariana foi dividida entre nazistas (“guerra ao terror” somado ao dinheiro das drogas) e os aquecedores globais (fraude do comércio de carbono), parece que uma terceira facção para “drenar o pântano” está emergindo. Teremos que esperar e ver se estes, realmente são "os mocinhos". Suas ações dirão.

Do jeito que as coisas estão agora, de acordo com fontes do Pentágono, “o sistema financeiro quântico, apoiado por ativos, está pronto, mas que, no entanto aguarda a cúpula de Trump-Putin, a redefinição global das moedas, prisões em massa e soluções geopolíticas”.

As fontes também estão dizendo que a quarentena no planeta Terra pode ser levantada e que, em breve, “a força espacial de Trump poderá ter uma guarda espacial para policiar as viagens espaciais civis”. Parece ótimo, todavia, só acredite quando puderem comprar uma passagem para outro planeta em sua agência de viagens local.

Numa nota final não relacionada, a seguinte notícia sobre aranhas voando “milhares de quilômetros usando eletricidade” chamou nossa atenção.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-5918477/Electric-fields-atmosphere-secret-spiders-FLY-thousands-miles.html

Anos atrás, um pesquisador russo me disse que descobriram que os insetos usavam a antigravidade. É por isso que os zangões podem voar, embora a teoria aerodinâmica atual diga que eles não possam. Se os insetos podem usar a antigravidade, também, poderemos fazer isso. Mais uma vez, porém, só acredite quando você pode comprar um tapete voador ou uma scooter antigravidade em sua loja local.

Concluindo, tudo o que, com certeza, podemos dizer é que a humanidade está entrando em território desconhecido.

          'IEX has sunk to a new low': NYSE blasts upstart rival's claims that it's misleading its listed companies in brutal letter      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

new york stock exchange traders

  • The debate over rebates tearing apart Wall Street has gotten even more heated. 
  • In a new letter, NYSE is blasting IEX's accusations that it is misleading listed companies. 


Just when we thought the war tearing apart Wall Street couldn't get any more heated, it just did.

The New York Stock Exchange has submitted a brutal letter to the US Securities and Exchange Commission, responding to accusations made by IEX in its own comment letter about a pilot that would shake up US stock trading.

The so-called transaction fee pilot would ban exchanges in certain instances from using rebates, which are incentives to lure traders to their venues. Upstart exchange IEX has long-called for the elimination of rebates, but most recently it blasted rival NYSE for calling on its listed companies to urge the SEC to pump the brakes on the pilot.

IEX criticized NYSE's actions, noting that many of NYSE's listed companies have shareholders that publicly support the pilot. IEX says this is tantamount to NYSE urging listed companies to act against the interest of shareholders. Notably, a string of large asset managers and pension firms from Fidelity to the Ontario Teachers Pension Plan have sided with IEX on the pilot. 

"We believe that issuers and investors should be able to trust that exchanges will deal with them in an honest and transparent way, especially on matters of market structure," IEX said. 

Now, NYSE has responded. And the exchange venue didn't mince its words, starting off with a frank criticism of IEX, which was granted approval by regulators to operate as an exchange in 2016. 

"By any objective measure, IEX has failed to have a meaningful impact as an exchange," NYSE said in a letter dated July 10. "So how does it try to cling to relevance when its high-cost, low-volume business model is jeopardized? By blaming others and disparaging NYSE’s name to attract attention."

As for whether NYSE is acting against the interest of its listed companies, the exchange operator said IEX's claims were "untrue and offensive."

NYSE said, "Most issues have two or more sides, and reasonable people can disagree. NYSE Group understands that many professional investment managers strongly dislike maker-taker pricing."

The letter reaffirmed the NYSE's position that the pilot would widen-spreads, which would adversely impact investors.

          The Google superstar Apple poached is now in charge of Siri (AAPL)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

John Giannandrea

  • Apple announced that it will combine its machine learning, artificial intelligence, and Siri groups.
  • They will report to John Giannandrea, who Apple poached from Google earlier this year. 

Apple announced on Tuesday that it combining many of its machine learning-focused teams under John Giannandrea, a Google veteran that the iPhone maker poached earlier this year.

Apple is moving its existing Siri and "Core ML" groups under him, a spokesperson confirmed to Business Insider. Giannandrea will lead a new "AI/ML" team at Apple. 

According to a bio added to Apple's leadership page on Tuesday, he reports to CEO Tim Cook and his title is "Chief of Machine Learning and AI Strategy." He is one of 16 executives who report directly to Cook. 

From his bio: 

"Prior to Apple, John spent 8 years at Google where he led the Machine Intelligence, Research, and Search teams. Before this he co-founded two technology companies, Tellme Networks and Metaweb Technologies. Earlier in his career John was a Senior Engineer at General Magic."

When Giannandrea unexpectedly stepped down at Google to join Apple, it was a big deal. He was the chief of search and artificial intelligence at Google during a period where the search giant embraced the technologies.

The New York Times said he was "perhaps the most eligible tech executive on the market" during the brief period before he announced he planned to work for Apple. 

Apple has another high-profile machine learning expert on staff, Carnegie Mellon professor Russ Salakhutdinov.

          A vape pen startup that’s taking over America is speeding toward its goal of raising $1.2 billion, despite safety concerns      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

JUUL In Hand Female Black Tank Small


A vape pen startup that's taking over America is speeding toward its ambitious goal of raising $1.2 billion.

The company, called Juul Labs, announced the benchmark last week as part of a financing round which valued the company at $15 billion.

Juul has already closed on $650 million of the funding round, according to an SEC filing posted on Monday.

In the US, Juul has had wild success disrupting the existing tobacco market by appealing to former smokers. But concerns about the startup's leading product — a trendy, high-nicotine vape pen known as the Juul — worries scientists and public health advocates who say the device could be creating a new generation of smokers.

Chief among those concerns is emerging research on the health and safety of the Juul and its highly addictive potential. Other issues include a Food and Drug Administration query into whether the company marketed its products to teens, as well as increasing demands from Congress members for the FDA to review the product's safety.

Local initiatives like San Francisco's recent ban on flavored tobacco could put additional pressure on the company, which has advertised sweet and fruity flavors as a key part of its appeal.

Teen Juuling presents an ethical dilemma

JUUL In Hand Female Denim Jacket copyJuuls are especially popular among American teens, who post viral selfies and videos showing friends pulling drags from the discreet, USB-stick-like devices in class. Scientists and public health experts have sounded the alarm on the practice, known as "Juuling," saying the e-cigs pose a major health concern to young people.

Chief among their worries is the Juul's uniquely high concentration of addictive nicotine, which is more than double that of other leading e-cigs and may be especially problematic for young people whose brains are particularly susceptible to addiction.

The US Food and Drug Administration is currently looking into Juul's marketing practices to determine whether the company previously advertised to young people, who cannot legally use the devices until age 18.

The FDA could start regulating Juuls and other vapes

The FDA could also decide to review the safety of Juul vape pens and other similar brands, which could put a major hold on the devices until they are cleared as safe.

Because of an existing rule, several e-cig manufacturers are not required to apply to the FDA for review until the summer of 2022. But many members of Congress have publicly pushed the agency to change this practice and look into regulating the devices, citing their popularity among young people.

In a recent letter to the FDA, congress member Frank Pallone (D-New Jersey) wrote, "The availability of Juul and e-cigarettes to youth is extremely troubling."

Ashley Gould, Juul's chief administrative officer, told Business Insider in March that the soaring interest in the device among youth runs counter to Juul's mission.

"Juul is a company that was started by smokers with an objective to switch smokers to non-combustible products," Gould said, adding that the company is vehemently opposed to anyone under 18 using their products — and even has a number of campaigns aimed at addressing and curbing underage use.

Local governments could push for more limits on e-cigs

juul e-cig vape pen california prop e posterBeyond these issues, some local governments are taking it upon themselves to enact bans on some of the most enticing components of vape pens, like their sweet flavorings.

In June, the city of San Francisco — long known for its progressive ballot measures like the plastic bag ban — passed an initiative banning flavored tobacco products that includes Juul flavor packs (known as Juul Pods). The current flavor line-up includes options like "Cool Cucumber" and "Creme Brulee."

Several big names have come out in support of the flavor ban, suggesting that it could spur similar moves in other cities. Michael Bloomberg, the former mayor of New York City and the CEO of Bloomberg Philanthropies, called the move "an important step forward for public health" in a recent statement, adding: "This vote should embolden other cities and states to act."

          Did The U.S. Threaten Ecuador Over A Breastfeeding Resolution?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
U.S. officials made threats to Ecuador in an attempt to water down a resolution in support of breastfeeding, according to a report in The New York Times . The news report has garnered strong reaction from the U.S. government. President Trump tweeted that it is a "Fake News story" that "must be called out." A State Department official told NPR that "media reports suggesting the United States threatened a partner nation related to a World Health Assembly resolution are false." The tension over the breastfeeding resolution came to a head in Geneva in May, when the decision-making body of the World Health Organization held its annual meeting for government officials and other stakeholders to discuss a range of health policy issues. The Times story, from reporter Andrew Jacobs, details how what was initially thought to be a noncontroversial resolution, aimed at promoting breastfeeding, allegedly resulted in the U.S. making threats to cut trade and withdraw some military aid from Ecuador.
          Behind Bars, Mentally Ill Inmates Are Often Punished For Their Symptoms      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
By some accounts, nearly half of America's incarcerated population is mentally ill — and journalist Alisa Roth argues that most aren't getting the treatment they need. Roth has visited jails in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Atlanta and a rural women's prison in Oklahoma to assess the condition of mentally ill prisoners. She says correctional officers are on the "front lines" of mental health treatment — despite the fact that they lack clinical training. "Most of [the correctional officers] will talk about how this is not what they signed up," Roth says. "Most of them have not had much training in dealing with mental illness — or they've had none at all." Roth witnessed high-risk prisoners in solitary confinement or chained up or wearing restrictive jumpsuits — which tended to exacerbate the prisoners' distress. Therapy, when available, was often conducted under stressful conditions. Roth describes one session in the Los Angeles County jail that took place through the slots of a

For political journalists, writes Walter Shapiro on the US Brookings website, there is safety in a system that places inordinate emphasis on objective measures like polls and campaign coffers.

Before the votes are tallied, everything else in campaign stories is subjective. Experienced reporters make arbitrary decisions on who to quote, which anecdotes are relevant, and the “underlying mood of the electorate.” Sometimes their instincts are right, sometimes they become overly wedded to an existing storyline like Hillary Clinton’s inevitability.At a moment when all reporters worry about accusations of bias, it is comforting to say their candidate assessments are based on tangible numbers from polls and fund-raising tallies. This invariably leads to group-think campaign coverage in which only the most iconoclastic reporters are willing to challenge the conventional wisdom about who will win.

Sometimes the herd gets it wrong when unexpected candidates run campaigns that go viral and the media ends up surprised.That's what happened recently in a couple of Democratic primaries and the You Tube videos show why two political unknowns defeated well established incumbents.In New York Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's “The Courage to Change” narrates a capsule history of her life, recounting how she was born in the Bronx, worked as an educator, organiser and waitress and became a candidate because “every day gets harder for working families like mine to get by.”

MJ Hegar, running in Texas, describes how "my whole life has been about opening, pushing, and sometimes kicking through every door in my way. Ready for a Congress that opens doors for Americans instead of slamming them in our faces? "

Rescue Team

After a few of the young soccer players trapped in a cave in Thailand were rescued on Sunday morning, monsoon rains continued to hinder the rescue efforts, according to the New York Post.

During a brief break in the weather, rescuers were able to pump some of the excess water out of the Tham Luang cave in the Chiang Rai province and rescue at least four boys, who had been trapped in there for over two weeks.

However, the rain shortly recommenced, putting a halt to the rescue operation. The province is expected to experience flooding on Monday and Tuesday, further delaying the rescue effort. Now, it could take up to four days to rescue the rest of the team and their coach, weather permitting.

Rescuers have already predicted that it will take another 10 to 12 hours to free the eight remaining boys and their coach from the cave.

          U.S. Opposes U.N. Breastfeeding Resolution – Threatens To Sanction Ecuador      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Baby formula

The New York Times reported Sunday that United States threatened to sanction Ecuador if they did not drop the United Nations-affiliated World Health Assembly’s resolution to encourage breastfeeding.

Aside from encouraging parents to breastfeed, the resolution urges countries to try to limit the inaccurate marketing of formulas, or breast milk substitutes. A Lancet study from 2016 revealed that breastfeeding could potentially prevent over 800,000 infant deaths worldwide, in addition to yielding billions in savings.

U.S. officials, however, attempted to dilute the resolution in order to continue to support the economic interests of formula manufacturers. Officials removed passages strictly calling for countries to protect children by promoting the practice of breastfeeding instead of buying formula.

          Did The U.S. Threaten Ecuador Over A Breastfeeding Resolution?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
U.S. officials made threats to Ecuador in an attempt to water down a resolution in support of breastfeeding, according to a report in The New York Times . The news report has garnered strong reaction from the U.S. government. President Trump tweeted that it is a "Fake News story" that "must be called out." A State Department official told NPR that "media reports suggesting the United States threatened a partner nation related to a World Health Assembly resolution are false." The tension over the breastfeeding resolution came to a head in Geneva in May, when the decision-making body of the World Health Organization held its annual meeting for government officials and other stakeholders to discuss a range of health policy issues. The Times story, from reporter Andrew Jacobs, details how what was initially thought to be a noncontroversial resolution, aimed at promoting breastfeeding, allegedly resulted in the U.S. making threats to cut trade and withdraw some military aid from Ecuador.

She says correctional officers are on the "front lines" of mental health treatment — despite the fact that they lack clinical training. "Most of [the correctional officers] will talk about how this is not what they signed up," Roth says. "Most of them have not had much training in dealing with mental illness — or they've had none at all." Roth witnessed high-risk prisoners in solitary confinement or chained up or wearing restrictive jumpsuits — which tended to exacerbate the prisoners' distress.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          Dyckman Farmhouse in New York, New York      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The Dyckman Farmhouse

Built sometime around 1785, the Dyckman Farmhouse is a Dutch Colonial-style home that once stood on a 250-acre farm. Long since overrun by the booming city of New York, it now stands in a small park in the Inwood neighborhood of upper Manhattan. It’s both the oldest remaining farmhouse on the island, and the only one in the Dutch style. 

Now a museum, the Dyckman family home tells the story of rural Manhattan and the lifestyle of its early residents, as the island gradually changed from a farmland community to an ever-expanding urban metropolis.

In the mid-1600s, Jan Dyckman made the long voyage from Westphalia to New Amsterdam on Manhattan Island. Here he settled, built a farm and raised a family. By the time of the American Revolution, the family land had passed down to Jan’s grandson William. But when the British occupied Manhattan from 1776 to 1783, William Dyckman and his family fled to upstate New York.

Upon their return after the war, the Dyckmans found their family home and orchards in ruins. William soon began to rebuild, however, albeit at a slightly different location on Kingsbridge Road (now Broadway). Less than five years later, the family and their slaves had rebuilt the farmhouse, and rescued the orchards and 250 acres of land.

William died in 1787, at which time the family put the property up for sale. But his son, Jacobus, decided to keep the farm, and moved in to the house around 1793. He had a large family, including his wife Hannah and their 11 children. But between 1809 and 1822, the Dyckmans were struck by one family tragedy after another, and Jacobus lost not only his wife but also four sons, a daughter, and a grandson.

Jacobus continued on, growing crops such as corn, cucumbers, cabbage and hay, and filling his orchards with cherry and apple trees. He died in 1832 and the land passed on, eventually to his grandson Isaac Michael Dyckman, whose two daughters would be responsible for the preservation of the farmhouse in 1915. By this time, much of the land had been sold off or divided between various family members. And all the while, the city was creeping in.

Rapid development in the area was quickly turning the land from rural to urban, and with it many of the old farmhouses were being demolished. Seeing their old home under threat, Mary Alice Dyckman Dean and Fannie Fredericka Dyckman Welch bought the property in 1915 specifically to save it from being swallowed up by the urban sprawl.

Along with their husbands, they began a major restoration and furnishing project, striving to return the house to what they believed was its earliest appearance. In July 1916, the farmhouse was opened to visitors and has remained open ever since. 


          Offer - Outsourcing Will Surely Aid Cost Saving When all Other Cost-Saving Techniques Fail! - USA      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
To a company, business or individual who hasn’t experienced the incredible power of outsourcing in saving cost, the assertion above may sound overboard. But, in all truthfulness, if you have struggled so hard in vain to greatly reduce business running cost and maximize profit, you should try outsourcing!An Overview of OutsourcingIt is most likely you’re not hearing the word outsourcing for the first time. But, it’s possible you don’t have a good grasp of what this term is all about. In a nutshell and without any ambiguity, outsourcing is simply hiring someone or a company to perform certain business tasks from their own location/office.It’s just like a contractual work relationship. And, just like other job contracts, outsourcing comes with cost saving benefits and even much more than the regular contractual job relationships.See How Outsourcing Helps to Save Huge CostYou are not spending a dime on setting up an office for the employees. It is cost intensive to set up an office space for new employees. From renting a space to equipping the space with the necessary office equipment’s, a company or business will definitely dig deep into its profit to set up a new space, plus regular maintenance expenses.But, with outsourcing, the outsourcing company or freelancer doesn’t need your own space to offer their services to you. Some of them work from home, while some have their own already-set space for the task you need accomplished. So, when you calculate the enormous cost you’ve bypassed by taking advantage of someone else’s office space, it is indeed desirable and impressive.The outsourcing provider is not paid allowances and there’s no need for healthcare schemes. These are significant items of expenditure when it comes to full-time staffing. And of course, these allowances (e.g. housing allowance) and health-care programs) are often not optional. They dent the profit of any company significantly.On the other hand, the employee who offers service in a freelancing manner helps you to bypass full staffing costs significantly. You can employ a couple of full-time employees and use outsourcing to execute tasks that are temporary so that you can save cost.Offshore outsourcing offers the best cost saving benefit. Outsourcing jobs to Philippines and other top offshoring destinations offers the most cost saving benefit to a company or business.There’s consistently huge difference between the service price of an offshore outsourcing company and an onshore outsourcing company, which is why offshoring is very popular among business operators and companies.So, if other cost saving techniques have brought only little result, try outsourcing!Daven Michaels is a New York Times Best Selling Author and CEO of premiere global outsourcing company, 123Employee.

          How Pie-Throwing Became a Comedy Standard      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
article-image

One of the last places you might expect to find a commemorative plaque is on a concrete self-storage building in Los Angeles. But there, on 1712 Glendale Blvd., a plaque memorializes what was once a sprawling film lot known as Keystone Studios. The film company, now located in present-day Echo Park, was famed for its uproarious slapstick comedies—particularly those involving tossed pies.

For over a century, flinging a pie into someone's face has been a comedy trope, thanks in part to Keystone. Established in 1912 by director Mack Sennett, the studio was once touted as a comedy pioneer, and had a hand in making pie-throwing ubiquitous. Yet pie-tossing is a more common stunt in the popular imagination than it is in reality.

This phenomenon can be traced back before the earliest days of pre-1920's silent film. Tossing a pie into someone's face for comedic effect first existed on the vaudeville circuit. The hilarity of seeing an elegant dessert hit an an actor, and watching them react with either anger or bewilderment, soon made its way to the screen. In 1913, Sennett's muse Mabel Normand and Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle "launched the first such missile in a Keystone film," notes The Oxford Companion to Food. Soon, the studio became known for pie-tossing shenanigans, and the high-flying desserts flew so freely that the studio needed its own bakery to make them.

article-image

The answer turned out to be right across the street. One Sarah Brener owned a variety store there, but she also supplied the studio with its pies. Sometimes, they were delicious. Charlie Chaplin said that Brener's pies were the best in town (he once gave her one of his trademark canes as a memento, too.) But often, they had to be specially formulated for films. The ones Keystone used were "a special ballistic version of the pie, with heavy-duty pastry and especially slurpy 'custard.'" As pie fights in film grew more elaborate, Brener's bakery was soon making nothing else.

Filmmakers preferred custard pies for flinging. They were appropriately messy and, without a top crust, likely less painful than a lattice-edged cherry pie would be to the face. In one biography of the silent film comedy star Buster Keaton, author Marion Mead recorded his pratfall-ready custard pie recipe. In it, two baked pie crusts were welded together with a solid foundation of flour and water. Then, they were filled with an inch of thick flour-and-water paste. If the pie was to be thrown at a blonde or a man in a light suit, a chocolate or strawberry garnish was added. For a man in a dark suit, the pie would be garnished with lots of whipped cream for the wreckage to show up well on camera. He also gave advice on how to throw it: like a Roman discus, for instance.

article-image

For a time, Keystone Studios was a powerful studio, launching stars like Charlie Chaplin to prominence. But by the time the 1920's rolled around, people had grown tired of the custard-pie shtick. It wasn't long before comedies were being advertised on their pie-less merits: one ad trumpeted that "a custard pie and a pretty girl or two in a bathing suit do not make a comedy." Pieing was so commonplace that Sennett had even developed rules for what characters could be taken down a notch with an ignominious pie to the face: mothers-in law, yes, mothers, no. (The humbling effect of a pie to the face has also made them a tool of political commentary.)

Widespread pie-throwing faded, but it didn't die completely: Comedic films and animation alike have been peppered with pieing ever since, from Bugs Bunny to the Three Stooges. In 2015, The New York Times even reported that a "holy grail" of film history had been re-discovered: the second reel of the Laurel and Hardy 1927 short "The Battle of the Century", where 3,000 pies sail through the air. It was supposed to be the pie fight to end all others, but in 1965 the film "The Great Race" promised viewers "the greatest pie fight in history." Thousands of real pies were used, and after filming, the entire set stank of the rotting dessert.

          Medical Clinics That Treat Refugees Help Determine The Case For Asylum      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Dr. Nick Nelson walks through busy Highland Hospital in Oakland, Calif., to a sixth-floor exam room, where he sees patients from around the world who say they have fled torture and violence. Nelson, who practices internal medicine, is the medical director of the Highland Human Rights Clinic , part of the Alameda County health system. A few times each week, he and his team conduct medical evaluations of people who are seeking asylum in the United States. The doctors listen to the patients' stories. They search for signs of trauma. They scrutinize injuries, including electrocution scars, bullet wounds and unset broken bones. As the Trump administration looks to reduce the number of applicants for asylum, citing loopholes and fraudulent claims, this clinic — and others like it in San Diego, Los Angeles, New York and Chicago — seeks evidence that can help determine whether someone should gain asylum in the U.S. The Highland clinic opened in 2001 as a place for asylum-seekers and refugees
          Offer - Outsourcing Will Surely Aid Cost Saving When all Other Cost-Saving Techniques Fail! - UNITED ARAB EMRIATES      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
To a company, business or individual who hasn’t experienced the incredible power of outsourcing in saving cost, the assertion above may sound overboard. But, in all truthfulness, if you have struggled so hard in vain to greatly reduce business running cost and maximize profit, you should try outsourcing!An Overview of OutsourcingIt is most likely you’re not hearing the word outsourcing for the first time. But, it’s possible you don’t have a good grasp of what this term is all about. In a nutshell and without any ambiguity, outsourcing is simply hiring someone or a company to perform certain business tasks from their own location/office.It’s just like a contractual work relationship. And, just like other job contracts, outsourcing comes with cost saving benefits and even much more than the regular contractual job relationships.See How Outsourcing Helps to Save Huge CostYou are not spending a dime on setting up an office for the employees. It is cost intensive to set up an office space for new employees. From renting a space to equipping the space with the necessary office equipment’s, a company or business will definitely dig deep into its profit to set up a new space, plus regular maintenance expenses.But, with outsourcing, the outsourcing company or freelancer doesn’t need your own space to offer their services to you. Some of them work from home, while some have their own already-set space for the task you need accomplished. So, when you calculate the enormous cost you’ve bypassed by taking advantage of someone else’s office space, it is indeed desirable and impressive.The outsourcing provider is not paid allowances and there’s no need for healthcare schemes. These are significant items of expenditure when it comes to full-time staffing. And of course, these allowances (e.g. housing allowance) and health-care programs) are often not optional. They dent the profit of any company significantly.On the other hand, the employee who offers service in a freelancing manner helps you to bypass full staffing costs significantly. You can employ a couple of full-time employees and use outsourcing to execute tasks that are temporary so that you can save cost.Offshore outsourcing offers the best cost saving benefit. Outsourcing jobs to Philippines and other top offshoring destinations offers the most cost saving benefit to a company or business.There’s consistently huge difference between the service price of an offshore outsourcing company and an onshore outsourcing company, which is why offshoring is very popular among business operators and companies.So, if other cost saving techniques have brought only little result, try outsourcing!Daven Michaels is a New York Times Best Selling Author and CEO of premiere global outsourcing company, 123Employee. The company employs hundreds of young bright individuals on three continents. His International event, Beyond Marketing Live! inspires entrepreneurs build & grow their business with revolutionary new theories and systems allowing them to design the business and personal lifestyle of their dreams.

As The Post noted, “human waste-related complaints in San Francisco have skyrocketed 400 percent from 2008 to 2018,” and “In 2017 alone, more than 21,000 reports were received.” What happened in San Francisco is obvious. It stopped prosecuting quality-of-life offenses and, unsurprisingly, the quality of life for the city’s residents and visitors decreased sharply. In 2015, San Francisco courts stopped enforcing bench warrants for such offenses. Police continued writing up tickets for public drunkenness or sleeping in parks, but when the accused failed to show up to their court appearance […]

I am sitting here typing in the patio as we moved the typewriter here to be a little cooler.  The weather was just too warm to try use the dining room this evening.  At least I can see a breeze blowing the leaves of the trees.  Mary Virginia has gone to Villars Chapel to hear some singing group with the Rankins.  Dad and I are talking about going for a bicycle ride.  We just finished supper – the last of some banana yogurt that we made when the Hortons were here (which was plenty soupy then for we waited too long for it to season but refreezing it seemed to help it).  Also had some honeydew melon – not as ripe and good as the previous one (it was a real buy for 39¢ and delicious).

We were glad to hear from all of you this past week – another record !!  It was good talking to Catherine and also getting the letter.  Before I forget I'd better say now that don't give up hope if you call and don't find anyone at home next Thursday evening as Dad is to work at the ball park and Mary Virginia and I usually end up over there and sometimes helping there too. We were happy to hear that Wendy had acquired her second tooth without too much difficulty and glad to hear that she adapts so well to camping life.

Really glad that you made the decision to stay in New Jersey and not rush back to Arizona, Roberta.  Mary Virginia really held her breath for if you had gone back that would have left her wondering what to do the middle of July.  She is happy to get to see Marion and I.T. since their visits coincide.  Too bad that you will have to make so many trips to the airports – MV is also wondering if you will have room for her in their old room since it is so small and you already have a roommate.

Glad that we were finally able to find you at home, Serena, and hope that things work out for you to get a fellowship or possibly a chance to go to Denver yet.  You must really have an IN with UMKC if you are staying at the home of the head of the program there.  We do hope that you will plan to come home between summer school and fall semester or quarter if you aren't doing else.

Your letters are spaced wide apart, John, but glad to hear of you thru Roberta's.  Sound like those new t-shirts are going well as well as other things in the canteen.  Too bad you weren't reached sooner by Bell's office or whoever it was that wanted a youth coordinator but wonder how you would find much time for all you do now.

We went down to Rocky Fork Restaurant for lunch today as Grandma had been wanting to go – had planned to go while the Hortons were here but it didn't work out.  They now have a buffet available on weekends which they called a smorgasbord but though the view is wonderful we didn't find the food nor the service too good not to elaborate but servings generous!!   Dr. Hull's Fun in the Sun was not open but the miniature golf available.  I don't know whether it is closed permanently or what for this is certainly the season and Sunday would be one of the best days to be open.

Had a little more difficulty with the Mercury Friday when Wilma, MV and I went to Washington Court House to do a little shopping.  We scraped the bottom of the gas tank and it began to leak profusely and so ended up with us having to get it replaced.  In the meantime the fire department had to hose the streets and the service station.  Guess I was lucky no one was around throwing matches or cigarettes or it would have followed me fast!!  As Dad keeps saying the next thing to go is the exhaust system but so far that is about the only original fixtures under the body and hood.

Monday was quite a day too for Duffie Doo Silver Streak unbeknownst to me rode to Wilmington and refused to come home.  I hated it especially for Roberta's sake for know how unhappy she will be on her next visit if that little furry thing isn't on hand to greet her.  Mary Virginia took it very well – it saved solving some questions of what to do about her while we are away but I am still having dreams of her and what may have happened to him (it).Patty Walker Ryan had a little girl just a little over a week after Jacalyn's wedding day so all came out okay.  Just noticed it in yesterday's paper so hope she got along okay.  They have named her Shellie Jo to accompany Shannon Dee.  If Jim was at the wedding we didn't know it for he is unknown to us but doubt if he made it.  Nancy sounded as if she has about given up going to Europe.

Tuesday didn't start off too sunny but we were on our way around 8AM and met Bob Gooding at the Canoe Livery (Morgan's) where we took their bus to the Caesar Creek area.  There Beverly was waiting with their canoe and we were soon on our way.  It was good that it was cloudy for it wasn't too hot.  The sun did come out while we were having a picnic lunch at the roadside park near the I-75 bridge.  We thought the tables would all be taken but they had closed the road dow to it because of a mud slide across the road.  Darlene Linkhart went with Mary Virginia.  Bob had to leave for Salt Lake City the next day for a couple of days so we separated after the canoeing.  Darlene had never been to Fort Ancient since she was real little so stopped to see the view there and the museum which really fascinated her.  There are several competitors for the Morgans now so had no trouble getting a canoe but had made reservations earlier.

Wednesday night was Lions Club and Dad was on the committee, had a basic menu of roast beef, baked potatoes, succotash, salads and pistachio pudding.  For the thirty people the cost for the four of us averaged about $7.00 each.  For the program we had a fellow from near Hillsboro who had been to Brazil and who was excited enough about it that he even wanted to buy land down there.  He is really sold on it as a place for the future.

Clyde Irwin brought a big mess of green beans last Saturday – ours will be ready in a few days.  We should be having tomatoes in a couple more weeks.  We should have an earlier garden next year for plan to get some more fertilizer before the next season.

The Wolfroms (all except little Jeannie) are leading a canoe trip in Canada.  The group is leaving tomorrow morning – Rev. Wise, Keith Rittenhouse and David Thornburg are among those going.  They are to be gone ten days.  If Dad didn't already have plans made to be gone he might have been influenced to have gone with them.

We have not told anyone around here about our upcoming trip but plan to leave Cincinnati Monday evening, July 17th.  Mary Virginia will be going that same afternoon to Hudson Guild to stay until we go over the first week of August.  We are due back I believe Tuesday, July 25th so hope to hear from all of you before we go and also have a letter when we get back ???  Grandma is planning on going to New Jersey with us about Aug. 3rd and if all goes well we will be at the farm that evening and then go to New York a couple of days later – more details later.  She (G'ma) will stay at the farm while we are at the Bar Meeting but hope that Roberta, and John may get to come into New York while we are there.  What are your chances of going with us, Serena, or are you interested?  Think Mary Virginia is coming to New York for some of the time.

Your trip into Oregon and possibly Washington sounds interesting, Catherine and Gerry and hope you get some possible prospects through the International Harvester dealers.  We would certainly love to see all of you and wish that we might all be together for a reunion.  I just finished reading a book written by Laura Hughes' sister about their family – their move to Ohio from Kentucky and the hardships they faced during the early 1920's and 30's.  Pictures of Mrs. Hughes as a little girl look so much like Weegie as I remember her growing up.

We do want to get this into the mail so that Catherine gets if before she leaves Oregon (Hillsboro) where she will be visiting her Kalamazoo classmate Sue . . . can't recall her name now and don't have the letter too handy.

We shall be thinking of all of you and always look forward to hearing from you.  Also glad to hear that Rob is enjoying Hudson Guild and vice versa.

With much love to you all and a special kiss for Wendy

John H. Tucker discusses his recent investigation for New York Magazine, Rape at Rosie’s,” along with Darcell Marshall, who is featured in the piece and won $1.2 million in a suit against the city last year.  A recent anonymous survey of 53,000 inmates in 358 jails nationwide put Rikers’ Rose M. Singer Center among the top ten worst jails in the country. Tucker’s investigation looks into how female inmates are being sexually assaulted by staff. Of the 307 allegations of sexual misconduct made in 2016 and 2017, 85% of those cases haven’t been resolved. Of the 45 cases that have been resolved, the Department of Corrections has ruled in favor of the female complainant only once.

          Did The U.S. Threaten Ecuador Over A Breastfeeding Resolution?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
U.S. officials made threats to Ecuador in an attempt to water down a resolution in support of breastfeeding, according to a report in The New York Times . The news report has garnered strong reaction from the U.S. government. President Trump tweeted that it is a "Fake News story" that "must be called out." A State Department official told NPR that "media reports suggesting the United States threatened a partner nation related to a World Health Assembly resolution are false." The tension over the breastfeeding resolution came to a head in Geneva in May, when the decision-making body of the World Health Organization held its annual meeting for government officials and other stakeholders to discuss a range of health policy issues. The Times story, from reporter Andrew Jacobs, details how what was initially thought to be a noncontroversial resolution, aimed at promoting breastfeeding, allegedly resulted in the U.S. making threats to cut trade and withdraw some military aid from Ecuador.

          Behind Bars, Mentally Ill Inmates Are Often Punished For Their Symptoms      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
By some accounts, nearly half of America's incarcerated population is mentally ill — and journalist Alisa Roth argues that most aren't getting the treatment they need. Roth has visited jails in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Atlanta and a rural women's prison in Oklahoma to assess the condition of mentally ill prisoners. She says correctional officers are on the "front lines" of mental health treatment — despite the fact that they lack clinical training. "Most of [the correctional officers] will talk about how this is not what they signed up," Roth says. "Most of them have not had much training in dealing with mental illness — or they've had none at all." Roth witnessed high-risk prisoners in solitary confinement or chained up or wearing restrictive jumpsuits — which tended to exacerbate the prisoners' distress. Therapy, when available, was often conducted under stressful conditions. Roth describes one session in the Los Angeles County jail that took place through the slots of a

Through their 'Hometown Heroes' initiative, the two indie stalwarts want you to put your home on the map.

In a commendable effort to discover and expand upon the wealth of cinematic stories being told, Seed&Spark and Mark and Jay Duplass are teaming up for another round of the Hometown Heroes crowdfunding competition. With New York and California often taking up a bulk of the "homegrown sights" portrayed on movie screens, this competition encourages filmmakers located outside of the world's largest cities to give their hometown their rightful due.

Launched last year, the worldwide initiative seeks to encourage filmmakers from underrepresented communities to pitch a film that's in some part centered around their hometown (with, if chosen, 75% of production taking place there as well).

New this year will be the acceptance of documentary work—last year was strictly a narrative-focused affair—and the pitches must conceivably be for a feature-length project. If selected, you could have the chance to receive $50,000 in funding and have the Duplass Brothers sign on as Executive Producers.

          Diabetes Late Nite inspired by Patti Austin      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
We’re celebrating Divabetic's 8 Year Anniversary of Diabetes podcasting with musical inspiration from Patti Austin. Grammy Award-winning Singer Patti Austin is in constant demand globally for live performances, thanks to a legacy of recordings that started in 1955, continued through the ‘60s with success as a teenage R&B star before establishing herself as a mainstay among jazz and soul audiences through her ‘70s recordings.  By the ‘80s, Austin became known to the wider international audience as a result of the Grammy-nominated “Baby Come To Me” and “How Do You Keep The Music Playing”, her early ‘80s classic duets with James Ingram. In New York, they referred to Patti as the “Queen of Studio” for her singing abilities. When she arrived on set to work for Randy and Michael Brecker, Patti met Luther Vandross for the first time.The moment created a lasting friendship. “Another thing (besides music) that bonded me to Luther was our weight issues,” she said. The two dialed each other often. “When touring, if we were in the same city, we attended movies together.” “He would usually pick some silly movie like [Scary Movie]” she said, expanding on the personal side of their relationship in a loving, humorous way. “I had type 2 diabetes,” says the former 285- pound singing sensation. “I had obesity-driven diabetes,” continued the now 140-pound Austin. To reach her new weight, Patti Austin had gastric bypass surgery and the result has been remarkable. Guests include Poet Lorraine Brooks, Jill Weisenberger MS, RDN, CDE, CHWC, FAND, Chris Pickering co-founder of ‘The Betes Bros, Patricia Addie-Gentle RN, CDE, and Mama Rose Marie. Throughout this podcast we will be featuring songs from ‘The Best Of Patti Austin’ album courtesy of SONY Music.

FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER, FANS WILL HELP SELECT  THE WINNER OF THE 2018 MR. OLYMPIA
Per Bernal

NEW YORK, July 10, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- American Media, Inc. (AMI), owner of the Mr. Olympia contest and Joe Weider’s Olympia Fitness & Performance Expo, today announced that for the first time in the event’s history, fans will cast one of the votes to select the 2018 winner of the Mr. Olympia, the sport’s premier event. This also marks the first time ever that this type of voting will be used at an IFBB Professional League event.

“Having our fans vote for Mr. Olympia continues AMI’s tradition of adding new and exciting experiences to the sport’s premier event each year,” said AMI Chairman and CEO David J. Pecker. “The 2018 Olympia will make history because it raises the stakes for all the competitors, ensuring that the field taking the stage at Orleans Arena on September 14 and 15 will be the best ever.”

Ticket holders for the judging round on Friday, September 14, and the finals on Saturday, September 15, will receive a special code with which they can evaluate each competitor and cast their vote on their phones. The fan votes will be collectively counted as one vote, joining the votes of the judges on the panel.

“The audience at a bodybuilding contest is different from those of the UFC, the NFL, and other sports,” IFBB Pro League President Jim Manion says. “The fans are more than spectators—they live bodybuilding and fitness. Just go to any show and you can see it isn’t your normal passive crowd. Many compete or have competed before. They are experts and know what to look for, and I believe they deserve a say in the final outcome.”

In the event the athlete earning the fan vote does not win the title, that competitor will be crowned the 2018 People’s Champion.

Today’s announcement generated an immediate reaction from the IFBB pros planning to compete:

“Hearing that the fans will have an active role in who they feel should be the 2018 Mr. Olympia is a great idea! I will do my very best and give it my everything to be the last man standing in Las Vegas come September.” —William Bonac, 2018 Arnold Classic champion and 2017 Mr. Olympia second runner-up.

“Fan voting changes the game and will make a huge difference. I am all for officially naming a People’s Champion, because I am always the People’s Champion.” —Shawn Rhoden, 2016 Mr. Olympia first runner-up.

“Yes! I think this is going to be great! I’m always the People’s Champion, so this could finally be Sandow No. 2 for me!” —Dexter Jackson, 2008 Mr. Olympia.

Interestingly enough, Phil Heath, the current Mr. Olympia, who will be going for his record-tying eighth Sandow trophy, had no comment on the fan voting.

In addition to the latest updates on the 2018 Mr. Olympia and the hundreds of events and exhibitors on display at Joe Weider’s Olympia Fitness & Performance Expo, you can also find complete contest rules, the official schedule of events, and much more.

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

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

12:15 a.m.

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

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

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

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

11:15 p.m.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

10:55 p.m.

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

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

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

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

10:15 p.m.

What came first, the chicken or the goal?

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

Why?

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

____

10:09 p.m.

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

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

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

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

___

9:46 p.m.

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

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

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

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

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

___

9:10 p.m.

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

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

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

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

___

9 p.m.

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

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

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

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

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

___

8:50 p.m.

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

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

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

8:10 p.m.

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

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

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

___

7:55 p.m.

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

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

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

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

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

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

____

7:45 p.m.

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

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

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

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

7:30 p.m.

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

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

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

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

___

7:15 p.m.

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

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

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

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

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

6:15 p.m.

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

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

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

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

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

5 p.m.

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

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

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

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

4:45 p.m.

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

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

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

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

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

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

3:30 p.m.

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

Paris, Russia, that is.

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

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

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

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

3 p.m.

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

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

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

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

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

1 p.m.

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

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

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

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

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

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

New York Sun, by Editorial Posted By: Toledo- Wed, 11 09 2018 12:09:18 GMT Senator Chuck Schumer says he knows why President Trump ended up picking Judge Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court. Mr. Schumer, according to the dispatch in the New York Post, is “worried” about Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller’s probe and reckons Judge Kavanaugh would be a “barrier” to the investigation. All we can say is that if it’s true, it’s the best of the many wonderful things people are saying about Judge Kavanaugh. The judge has certainly been in the thick of the fight to defend separated powers, which are so threatened by the very concept of independent (and special) counsels.

          What If Jonathan Chait Has Been a Useful Idiot Since 2013?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Back in 2013, when former Communist Party member Ron Radosh was whipping up a Pravda-style disinformation campaign against my anti-communist bookAmerican Betrayal, New York Magazine's Jonathan Chait stepped up and wrote an essay knocking "West's paranoia." While I'm not certain, I strongly suspect Chait was inveigled by Radosh to write the New York Magazine piece; I imagine Radosh blanched at Chait's positive-ish headline: "Conservative Historian Has Interesting Ideas."

Still, Chait's essay bears the familiar stamp of the Radosh/Horowitz-led assault in its repeated misrepresentations of my footnoted analysis of the influence (not "control") on US policy-making potentially exerted by hundreds of Soviet "agents of influence" and fellow travelers covertly embedded inside the US government -- the subversive force that "court historians," who bestow glory on political favorites rather than shed light on the past, ignore or deny to this day. Not that it is likely journalista Chait cracked the book. All he had to do was pretend, a la Radosh & Horowitz, that I had advanced a theory, as Chait put it, that "the Soviets controlled the American government in the way they controlled, say, East Germany." As any reader knows, this is cartoonish rubbish -- but a handy way to deceive readers into dismissing the book as such.

I am reminded of this because Chait has now spun up an East-Germany-style vision of Donald Trump as Putin's Honecker, a traitor to the USA since 1987. 

Titled "What If Trump Has Been a Russian Asset Since 1987?," the Chait piece does not even rise to the level of "conspiracy theory," Chait having presented no conspiracy to theorize about. His technique is to raise, magnify and connect doubts. "How do you even think about the small but real chance — 10 percent? 20 percent? — that the president of the United States has been covertly influenced or personally compromised by a hostile foreign power for decades?" he asks. One answer is, you write a few thousand pointless words.

But only about Trump. Chait takes everything back to Trump's July 1987 visit to Moscow. That's because in September of that same year Trump took out a series of full-page ads in prominent newspapers noting that "Japan and other nations have been taking advantage of the United States.″ In his open letter to the American people, Trump asked, ″Why are these nations not paying the United States for the human lives and billions of dollars we are losing to protect their interests?"

Classic Trump -- or was it really Gorbachev in disguise? As Chait notes, it is the Kremlin's propensity to seek splits between the US and its allies. He writes: "The safest assumption is that it’s entirely coincidental that Trump launched a national campaign, with himself as spokesman, built around themes that dovetailed closely with Soviet foreign-policy goals shortly after his Moscow stay. Indeed, it seems slightly insane to contemplate the possibility that a secret relationship between Trump and Russia dates back this far. But it can’t be dismissed completely." (Emphasis added.)

OK, I won't dismiss it completely. But it is also a fact that Japan by this same point in the mid-1980s was making massive inroads into the US construction market, very much including Manhattan. One Japanese company even built a 20-story addition on top of a building formerly owned by Donald Trump, as the New York Times noted in an article on the expanding share of Japanese construction business in the US. In its story of July 27, 1986, the Times noted: "Japanese construction companies certainly have both the cash and the contacts to create more and more American business. `'Any major Japanese contractor has money to burn,' said an officer of one leading Japanese builder, who asked not to be identified."

Nah, that couldn't possibly have driven Developer Donald a little nuts, eventually inspiring him to take out those ads the following year to tell the American people that we (and he) were being taken advantage of. The Kremlin made him do it.   

I jest, of course. The point is, Chait would have rather more credibility on this score if, when the "party line" was a little different, he had not previously rejected on cue the copious historical record of Kremlin influence assembled in American Betrayal as "West's paranoia." Indeed, I don't recall Chait raising, magnifying and connecting such doubts about, say, the Moscow trip of Bill Clinton, whose "themes" as a draft-dodging, war-protesting tourist certainly "dovetailed closely with Soviet foreign-policy goals" both before and after his1969-1970 winter travels to Brezhnev's Moscow, then Prague, still reeling from the Soviet crushing of "Prague Spring."

Then there's what has been regrettably nicknamed the Trump "pee tape." Chait: "There is growing reason to think the pee tape might indeed exist." Really? Well, there is also reason (whether growing, I can't say) to think that the Czech intelligence recruitment tape of Bill Clinton might indeed exist. Meanwhile, the tape of Barack Obama promising "flexibility" to, as Chait aptly calls him, "former KGB agent" Putin via Medvedev does exist. I know it does because I've seen it. Has Jonathan Chait? (Watch here.) While he's on this sudden Kremlin Influence kick, Chait would also do well to peruse the FBI files on the Soviet/communist connected family of Obama senior advisor, Valerie Jarrett, and also brush up on the Soviet/communist troika that politically birthed that winning 2008 team of Obama-Axelrod-Jarrett. 

It's guaranteed he won't because Chait's pursuits are not about truth-seeking or intellectual stimulation; they are all and only about political manipulation. Nowhere is his agit prop more thickly laid on than when he talks about Donald Trump as Putin's "much-needed flank against not just Obama but his former secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her aggressive position against Russia." In transforming Hillary "Reset" Clinton into a regular George Patton, Chait conveniently omits the valuable goodies Obama-Clinton bestowed on Mother Russia, from permanent normal trading status, long coveted by the "former KGB agent," to the massive "civilian" high tech transfer via the Clinton-Foundation-enriching Skolkovo set-up, where, as the Army warned in 2013, hypersonic cruise missile engine technology was already coming online. One has to wonder: Does Chait really think the KGB-linked bank in Moscow gave Bill Clinton that $500K speaking fee in 2012 for nothing? Meanwhile, ask yourself: If you are sitting in the Politburo and one US candidate is promising to revitalize the US military, very much including its nuclear arsenal (Trump), and the other US candidate is arguing that "the last thing we need" is next-generation nuclear-armed cruise missiles (Clinton), whom would you rather "collude" with?

Such thoughts, however, pose a clear and present danger to Chait's miasmic belief that "the Cold War that Americans had long considered won has dissolved into the bizarre spectacle of Reagan’s party’s abetting the hijacking of American government by a former KGB agent." 

For the record, I will note that American Betrayal argues America lost the "Cold War," that ever-undermined-from-within struggle against the expansion and entrenchment of communistic ideologies. This probably accounts for some share of the wrath it aroused on the part of Cold War triumphalists who seek to ensure Americans never actually understand how our institutions, from the halls of power in Washington (definitely including the "IC") to the pulpits to the campuses to the culture, were long ago Marxified according to well-executed and well-documented Kremlin strategy executed by masses of genuine American traitors.  

If America lost the Cold War long ago -- after also losing World War II, American Betrayal's other argument, identifying the Soviet Union as the true victor (thanks to those hundreds of agents of influence at the beating heart of every government, Allied and Axis) --  then it cannot be "Reagan's party abetting the hijacking of the American government" in 2016; it was already a long way toward a fait accompli before Trump ever began his completely unlikely and wholly unexpected political rise on a heretofore unseen counter-revolutionary "America First" platform. 

Chait's essay, then, is just so much narrative control, just so much framing, just so much warding off of the counter-revolution that President Trump's victory made possible, at least. I could be wrong, but I wouldn't be surprised if it all didn't begin with a heavy dose of Radosh.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          Behind Bars, Mentally Ill Inmates Are Often Punished For Their Symptoms      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
By some accounts, nearly half of America's incarcerated population is mentally ill — and journalist Alisa Roth argues that most aren't getting the treatment they need. Roth has visited jails in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Atlanta and a rural women's prison in Oklahoma to assess the condition of mentally ill prisoners. She says correctional officers are on the "front lines" of mental health treatment — despite the fact that they lack clinical training. "Most of [the correctional officers] will talk about how this is not what they signed up," Roth says. "Most of them have not had much training in dealing with mental illness — or they've had none at all." Roth witnessed high-risk prisoners in solitary confinement or chained up or wearing restrictive jumpsuits — which tended to exacerbate the prisoners' distress. Therapy, when available, was often conducted under stressful conditions. Roth describes one session in the Los Angeles County jail that took place through the slots of a
