          Don't make me fill your compost bag with my weeds!      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
by Anonymous

After being on the waiting list for 3 years(!) to get a community garden plot, a spot finally opened up in a park by my place. I was so pumped to have the space, dirt, sunlight, etc to start a garden after living in apartments for the past seven years. I figured that most people would be like me in the sense they didn't have a yard but wanted to grow a few things. Then I discovered what people I would really be sharing it with. How much unsolicited gardening advice can I take?! Please shut the hell up and mind your business. I don't give a shit that you own A HOUSE but still take up plots (or two!) here, I could care less when you think I should have planted my tomatoes, and if you stare at me or question if I should be here one more time, I swear to god I will come for your precious vegetables, herbs, and flowers, I will bring in all the bugs you don't want, I will leave the gate open so dogs and kid wander in, and I will fill your compost bag with my weeds! I will become THAT APARTMENT PERSON you are so scared of.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What is Your Greatest Strength?

It might actually be my continued ability to get out of bed in spite of the fact that I am so discouraged by my job search.

What is Your Greatest Weakness?

My overabundance of strengths. My perfectionism. My inability to stop working, ever, because I am so dedicated.

But really, probably the crushing insecurity that only increases each day I DON’T HAVE A FUCKING JOB.

Where Do You See Yourself in Five Years?

Hopefully with a FUCKING JOB. Not a job that involves fucking, mind you. Not my thing. But a job. Pls. K thx.

Why Have You Had So Many Jobs in the Past Few Years?

Many were temporary contracts. I finished my projects on good terms.

But yes, I wonder the same. damn. thing. all. the. time. I would love for this cycle of instability and unpredictability to stop.

And you know HOW that cycle will stop? IF SOMEONE FUCKING HIRES ME.

Why Have You Had This Large Employment Gap?

BECAUSE I NEED SOMEONE TO FUCKING HIRE ME.

Maybe ask the other companies I have applied to in the past year? And if you do, can you let me know what you find out? I’d love to know, too. Thanks!

          Green Day's "American Idiot" Soaring Up UK Charts in Anticipation of Trump Visit      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
by Sean Nelson

This album is nearly 14 years old, the same age as its ideal listenership
This album is nearly 14 years old, the same age as its ideal listenership

One good thing about the United Kingdom, aside from its surprisingly strong showing at this year's World Cup, is that they still care about pop charts there. Every so often, a percentage of the British population bands together to ensure that some album or song gets to number one by a particular date. The last one I remember was in 2008, when a campaign to make a cover of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" number one the week of Christmas resulted in three versions of the song landing in the top 40 (including the numbers one and two slots).

The latest iteration of this culture jamming impulse has a slightly more caustic aim. A Facebook group is campaigning to make Green Day's 2014 single "American Idiot" number one in the charts during the time when US President Donald Trump is in the country for a "working visit." According to CNN, the effort is working, and it's only one of several art-based anti-Trump protests gaining momentum.

The nearly 14-year-old song is currently sitting at number 18 with just over a week to go. And here I thought life under George W. Bush was the only condition stultifying enough to make that song and album feel like bold political gestures...

Okay, here's what NSKN replied back to me concerning the Seasoned Traveller pledge and the Paladin sleeves that will be available during the pledge manager:

Hi!

The prices for sleeves and Seasoned Traveller will not change with group pledges, but we can make it possible for you to order both sleeves and the expansion with your group pledge order.

Please message us when the PM opens about the expansions and sleeves, and we will find a way to make it a bit more attractive than via a regular plege - perhaps finding a way to slash the shipping.

Best regards
Błażej


So it sounds like we may be able to get significant discount on the shipping of these pledge manager extras. These will be dealt with as a separate deal from the above group pledges. Meaning, the payment for the above group pledges will take place a few days before this Kickstarter campaign ends. Then when the pledge manager opens, anyone who wants a set of sleeves for the game and/or a Seasoned Traveller pledge will let me know at that time. I will then work with NSKN to get the best deal we can on the shipping of those extras. Those who order them will split any shipping attached to those items.

BTW, if you want to stay in touch with this KS campaign after it ends, I would suggest you pledge a $1 so you can get all the updates. That will also let you know when the pledge manager opens and you'll be able to see what is available for purchase. Then come back here and let us know what you want extra. I will likely add all the above to the main entry so you won't have to keep hunting for this info later on.

Thanks everyone! Exciting to see we are now working on our 5th set of 6! Sure would be cool if we reached 36. And good news, we can even go beyond 36. If necessary, I'll go find out those additional group pledges soon. But if we do go beyond 30, I may also start sending GM to everyone who pledged so I can start gathering actual payments via PayPal or Venmo.

I believe this was through messaging the folks running the campaign.


Yes, that's correct. I contacted NSKN via Kickstarter to ask.

          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.

Updated at 12:05 p.m. ET President Trump signed full pardons on Tuesday for Oregon cattle ranchers Dwight Hammond Jr. and son Steven Hammond, whose long-running dispute with the federal government ended with prison sentences for arson — and later inspired the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge occupation. In its statement announcing the pardon, the White House said, "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." It added: "Dwight Hammond is now 76 years old and has served approximately three years in prison. Steven Hammond is 49 and has served approximately four years in prison. They have also paid $400,000 to the United States to settle a related civil suit." As for when the pair might be freed from federal prison, that event seems imminent: Larry Matasar, a Portland, Ore., attorney who represents the Hammonds, tells NPR that he

There is no constitutional right that says you get to live wherever you desire. I think I deserve to live in Bel Air. The real market dictates that if the area becomes to expensive, people move out. They go to Oakland or out of State. We see that "real" market in action all the time. Just ask Portland. If the quality if living is low(which it is in Berkeley for the money) then market forces a migration OUT. The real market also would allow for developers to come in and sell units for maximum profit. Then you may get a surplus, which begets a slowing in price inflation. All the YIMBYs here want to drop massive projects all over the City, at the expense of the people who already reside here-and degrade their property values. That's basically confiscation through ENVY.

    Here's thoughts, pointers, from opposite ends of the social sphere: Real Wealth means anonymity. We're not talking the kitty-litter of having a few hundred millions. Sure, there's a few poster-boys (inevitably men) for the billionaire+ set, but ask yourself a simple question: before the age of Trump, did you really realize that there was a legion of mobbed up rich oligarchs running things? Who all knew each other? And who you wouldn't recognize if they walked past you? I mean: the odd Football Club Owner you might faintly recognize... but the owner of Nestle? Not a chance. In opposition to this, there's the truism that the poor are always invisible (addendum: the ugly / plain in the Land of Selfies & Instagram). But that's the easy mode option: how about this - the last revolutionary act available to said people, targeted by Adware, Universal Panopticons, Credit Scores, Security Cameras across society, is becoming invisible to the <em>system</em>[0].

Those who are not really there, really aren't there: not to spoil it, but try this model (without being a vegan-hipster-who-made-millions-in-bitcoin-before-retiring-to-Portland) - ok, everyone reading this will have to pretend, but really, try it on a stranger <em>without</em> running it as a "Media Toxin Purge" or "Happen to be Amish, yo": "<em>Hi, I'm X - blah blah, I have no social Media imprint, don't watch TV, my phone is used for emergencies only, I email once a week, I don't run guns to Central American Rebel Groups and I'm not ultra wealthy or Jim Jones...</em>" Watch the reactions. It's... odd. As for little Miss Muffet on the plane: I'd have just cloned a profile that was akin to her boyfriends but <strong>much richer</strong> and played it right back to her pretending to be a new follower "insanely impressed" by her media smarts (Pretending I was an exec @ Vox or Buzzfeed?

    Generalmente de la ciudad de Portland ( Oregon) lo que se cuece es una fuerte escena de Black Metal por eso sorprende el debut de esta banda de metal clásico, los Axecrack. Lo que mas destaca de esta banda es su fe en el metal, adrenalina y aires juveniles.
    Debutan con este trabajo por lo tanto. Necessary Evil tiene los ingredientes del clásico metal americano, un sonido del bajo diferenciador, medio tiempo, groove y estribillo típico del Rock, sin mas historia. Delirum Inebrium es un tema lento que tarda demasiado en arrancar, con el bajo amplificado y los coros en el estribillo tratan de darle un aire oscuro a la composición típico del " horror metal " americano, pensad por ejemplo en bandas como Halloween entre otras.
    Las influencias de esta banda no pueden ser mas clásicas, un poco del Judas Priest en el acompañamiento y los cambios de ritmo, las intros acústicas de los Scorpions como en Born to Die, la atmósfera de los Maiden, el aspecto comercial de Dio y Metallica, incluso de Manowar y ese toque de Horror Metal antes comentado.
    El problema que nos vamos a encontrar es que resulta una banda agradable de escuchar, pero es de esa clase de escuchas que van perdiendo gas a medida que avanzan las escuchas, buscan un estribillo facilón y se quedan solo en eso, temas como Break my Fall son demasiado sencillos. Porque todos los temas tienen una duración similar de unos tres minutos y todos buscan lo mismo, acompañamiento de base rítmica poderoso y el estribillo facilón sin nada, sin un cambio de ritmo creativo o agresivo, sin el trabajo de la guitarra solista, sin pizca de originalidad, todos suenan igual.
    Liar sigue cotizando a la baja pese a la fortaleza de sus coros y el aire rockero de su riff, pero siempre buscan el medio tiempo con el acompañamiento del bajo. Menos mal que hay un par de temas donde buscan algo de esencia, ya no de creatividad. Lo que mejor se le da a esta banda de Portland es la balada lo vuelven a demostrar en Running Free, donde empiezan con acústica y unas notas de piano que le quedan muy bien, cuando cambian de ritmo y arrancan el tema lo hacen con un Hard Heavy Melódico donde nos regalan un buen solo.
    Blood and Bone es el único tema largo del trabajo y se lo podían haber ahorrado. Quiere darle ese toque oscuro y atmosférico que es un cruce entre Lizzy Borden y Wasp, alargan sin ninguna necesidad el tema y lo único creativo vuelve a ser el aporte de su bajista.
    A Billion Silent Screams pretende calcar el clásico inicio de un tema de Iron Maiden, es decir, de menos a más y cambian de ritmo sin ninguna lógica a un ritmo agresivo que no pega ni con cola con el inicio del tema. Los Axecrack tienen madera para hacer algo mucho mejor. Quieren sonar comerciales y no se desmelenan y nos regalan simples pinceladas de unos temas excesivamente comerciales y sencillos que una vez que escuchas varias veces pierden todo el efecto.

              Re: Sanders Speaks Out for UVM Medical Center Nurses      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    As stated below, it seems like Portland ME is a reasonable comparison for wages for a nurse...one must use cost of living as a reasonable comparison when seeking wage parity in comparing one groups wage to a similar group as a basis for seeking wage increases. I just don't see where or how a Burlington area nurse could justify a 20% raise - 5% perhaps, but not 20% plus. They should strike if they feel they can get a hefty raise, but on same note, the nurses should be willing to accept that they could be locked out or others take their jobs, or accept a reasonable and small pay raise to out them in parity with cities in the region with similar cost of living numbers.

    Sean L -- "I think Portland, ME is a closer analog than Boston for Burlington in terms of its general qualities (population, region, major medical center, je ne sais quoi)."

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

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

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

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

    Perhaps there are aspects of the Boston and Burlington markets beyond cost of living that account for some of the difference in median nurse pay. While Doug Hoffer is using superior data, interpretations may vary. Again, I think this is a flawed way to determine fair compensation, but...

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

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

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

              Sidewalks... reduce traffic crashes by 74%      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Sidewalks are as old as Pompeii (2000 years or so)

    Sidewalks are paid for by the land owners of the property they run across, whether they wish for the sidewalk to be constructed or not,  Town of Minden v. Stewart et al. Southern Reporter, Vol. 77. November 26, 1917. pp. 118–121.

    Research has found that riding bicycles on sidewalks is more dangerous than riding in the street.

    Children who walk to school have been shown to have better concentration.

    In the United States and Canada, the most common type of sidewalk consists of a poured concrete sidewalk, with horizontal strain-relief grooves faintly visible, examples of which from as early as the 1860s can be found in good repair in San Francisco, and stamped with the name of the contractor and date of installation.

    When quantities of Portland cement were first imported to the United States in the 1880s, its principal use was in the construction of sidewalks. Its name is derived from its similarity to Portland stone which was quarried on the Isle of Portland in Dorset, England. It was named by Joseph Aspdin who obtained a patent for it in 1824.

    Portland cement is one of the lowest-cost materials widely used over the last century. Concrete produced from Portland cement is one of the world's most versatile construction materials.

    Portland cement had been imported into the United States, and in the 1870s, it was being produced near Kalamazoo, Michigan.

    By the early 20th century, American-made Portland cement had displaced most of the imported Portland cement.


    Sidewalks often were made in Ohio as a result of the urban postmasters insisting that before they would deliver mail for free in a city (in excess of 20,000 pre-1887, after 1887, the postal department opened the service up to areas with either populations exceeding 10,000, or postal revenues in excess of $10,000) the city had to put in sidewalks.

    Before agreeing to establish free city delivery, postmasters could ask that the city's sidewalks be paved, the streets lit, the houses numbered, and that street names be placed at intersections.

    Rural postmasters would later demand that roads be easy to travel and free of obstructions before service could begin.

    The founding fathers of the United States believed the delivery of mail to be so essential to a healthy democracy that the establishment of Postal Offices and Post Roads was enshrined it in Article 1, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution

    On Tuesday, July 10, 2018, members of the Portland Police Bureau Central and North Precincts' Neighborhood Response Teams (NRT), assisted by members of the Drugs and Vice Division and the Tactical Operation Division's Special Emergency Reaction Team (SERT), served a search warrant, arrested two suspects and located illegal drugs at a residence in the 3100 block of Southeast 21st Avenue.

    This investigation began on June 21, 2018, when area residents contacted Portland Police regarding suspected drug activity at a residence in the 3100 block of Southeast 21st Avenue. Members of Central Precinct's Neighborhood Response Team contacted multiple concerned community members during the investigation. Based on information gathered by the officers, investigators applied for and obtained a warrant to search the location.

    As the warrant was served, two suspects were taken into custody. Officers also located and seized as evidence heroin, methamphetamine and cocaine during the search of the location.

    The two suspects that were taken into custody during the search warrant were identified as 42-year-old Dustin J. Fink and 43-year-old Carlo J. Celestine. Fink and Celestine were lodged at the Multnomah County Jail. Fink was lodged on a warrant for a previous conviction of Delivery of Heroin. Celestine was lodged on a probation violation warrant for a previous conviction of Possession of Methamphetamine.

    Investigators are continuing this investigation and ask anyone with information about Fink, Celestine or the location to contact Central Precinct Neighborhood Response Team Officer Matthew Jacobsen at 503-823-0097 or Matthew.Jacobsen@portlandoregon.gov.

    ###ORIGINAL MESSAGE BELOW###

    On Monday, July 9, 2018, North Precinct officers responded to the Goodwill, located at 5950 Northeast 122nd Avenue, and shortly afterwards to the Safeway, located at 6901 Northeast Sandy Boulevard. On both occasions, the officers responded to the report that an adult male had inappropriately touched a juvenile female in a sexual manner.

    During the separate investigations, the officers gathered information from witnesses and victims. Based on the information gathered, the officers believed the incidents were perpetrated by the same suspect.

    North Precinct officers contacted detectives with the Portland Police Bureau Family Service Division's Child Abuse Team (CAT). Child Abuse Team detectives responded to assume the investigation. During the investigation, detectives learned of a possible residence of the suspect. Child Abuse Team detectives arrived in the 1900 block of Southwest River Drive and contacted the suspect and took him into custody without incident.

    The suspect was identified as 55-year-old Ricardo Sanchez-Garcia. Sanchez Garcia was lodged at the Multnomah County Jail on two counts of Sex Abuse in the First Degree.

    Further investigation indicates that there may be additional victims. Anyone who may have been victimized by Sanchez-Garcia or has additional information about this investigation is encouraged to contact Detective Stephen Gandy at 503-823-0185 or Stephen.Gandy@portlandoregon.gov.

This Northern California premiere celebrates the human spirit as it chronicles Hirabayashi's journey from college in Seattle all the way to the Supreme Court, and eventually to a Presidential Medal of Freedom. Directed by Lisa Rothe, with Joel de la Fuente starring as Hirabayashi, Hold These Truths shares the story of a young man who passionately defends his Constitutional rights against an unexpected adversary: his own country. It will be presented July 11-August 5, 2018 (press opening: July 14) at the Lucie Stern Theatre, 1305 Middlefield Rd., Palo Alto. For tickets ($40-$100) and more information the public may visit TheatreWorks.org or call (650) 463-1960.

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

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

    This is not so much the holiday podcast as the pre-holiday podcast, because for all we are away now, I recorded this on Thursday night before going away, as we prepare ourselves for the unspeakable burden of doing absolutely fuck all for two weeks.

    I am taking a pile of books and a pile of new music and we are going to do pretty much nothing at all.  My parents used to do really adventurous travelling when we were young, but honestly I don't have the energy.  I am so incredibly fucking exhausted from constant Toadery that actually, despite having a holiday inferiority complex, pretty much all I can cope with at the moment is a couple of weeks of fuck all.

    Even last year when we went to Portland for a couple of weeks, we took all the technology and recorded interviews and all sorts at Pickathon.  It was relaxing and nice, but I still got a hell of a lot of work done.  This time I will take along some tunes which I have been meaning to catch up with, perhaps record a podcast or two, and basically spend the rest of the time lying in the sun by the pool.  My folks might not be all that impressed, but the recharging of the batteries is the sole purpose of this trip and I think we might manage just that.

    Bill Oddie, for those of you who don't know, is a legendary British television birdwatcher - twitcher as they're known.  He is also the subject of one of the most famous of all mondegreens: Madonna's "Bill Oddie, Bill Oddie, put your hands all over my body". 

    Anyhow, as a legendary feather flutterer it seemed only appropriate that his name should adorn a podcast entirely made up of bands with ornithological names.  We have everything here, from the albatross to the gull to the guillemot to the owl to the sparrow to the pigeon.  Honestly, this podcast could have been twice the length that it is, there were just so many appropriate bands - no Flock of Seagulls, for example, no Sparrow & the Workshop, no Sheryl Crow.

    So I hope you enjoy it.  While you're listening to this, Mrs. Toad and I will be enjoying the End of the Road Festival, and hopefully getting a few interesting interviews in for you all.  It'll be my first ever attendance as a legitimate press person, so I am feeling very full of myself at the moment, but with a bit of luck I'll justify the inflated sense of self-importance and bring back some fine bits and pieces for you to enjoy in the next week or two.

    Seattle food & drink specials to try in July. by Stranger Things To Do Staff

    Lazy summer days are the perfect excuse to partake in Seattle's bounty of treats. Read on to get the scoop on seasonal specials like pistachio fig cheesecake ice cream, POG macarons, and smoked peach pie cake.

    Bakery Nouveau
    The beloved bakery has rung in berry season with a strawberry tart consisting of pâte sucrée crust filled with vanilla bean pastry cream, and topped with fresh local strawberries.

    Bluebird Ice Cream
    The small-batch artisan ice cream maker is scooping up grasshopper ice cream: mint ice cream with Hydrox cookies (a.k.a. "America’s first chocolate sandwich cookie," which debuted in 1908 and pre-date Oreos by four years).

    Cookie Counter
    Greenwood's vegan ice cream shop and bakery has two new rotating flavors, Lavender Berry, a light floral ice cream made with a lavender base plus marionberries and raspberries, and S'mores, made with Equal Exchange Chocolate, marshmallows from My Dandies, and homemade graham crackers in a homemade vanilla base. You can also get the S'mores flavor in a Campfire Sundae.

    Central District Ice Cream
    The Central District gem known for its bold and unconventional flavors has outdone itself with its July offerings: Pistachio Fig Cheesecake, a Turkish fig and cream cheese ice cream with pistachio crust crumbles; Urfa Biber Chocolate, a Turkish-spiced chocolate flavor created in collaboration with chef Tarik Abdullah; Blackberry Molasses, a tangy blackberry and molasses ice cream; Chamoy and Tamarind, a flavor based on the Mexican salty-sweet hot sauce Chamoy with a tamarind caramel swirl; Advieh Vanilla, another flavor created in collaboration with Chef Tarik with Persian-spiced vanilla ice cream; Salted Honey, a salted honey ice cream with pink and green peppercorns; Ube Queso, ube ice cream with salty cheese; and Coconut Coffee, a coffee and coconut dairy-free flavor. Tip: If you go before Wednesday, July 11, you can get mini scoops of all eight flavors so you don't have to make the impossible decision of which to get (and you can even get it in a waffle cone or bowl).

    Cupcake Royale
    Seattle's first cupcake bakery doesn't just do cupcakes: right now, they've got a banana split ice cream that they describe as a "sundae in a cone": a fresh banana vanilla ice cream similar to banana cream pudding, with a swirl of house-made strawberry sauce, toasted walnuts, dark chocolate bark, and rainbow sprinkles on top. They also have a new salted cookie dough ice cream with Jacobsen sea salt. Of course, they've also got cupcakes too: Blackberry Mascarpone, a coconut cupcake with blackberry mascarpone frosting and topped with toasted coconut and smashed blackberry; Strawberry Shortcake, a vanilla cupcake filled with strawberry compote, swirled with whipped strawberry cream cheese frosting, and topped with graham cracker streusel and sprinkles; Peach Bourbon Crumble, a brown butter vanilla cupcake filled with peach compote, swirled with bourbon maple buttercream frosting, and topped with streusel and a dollop of peach compote; and Washington Blueberry Lemonade, a blueberry vanilla cupcake made with Washington blueberries and topped with lemon frosting and a blueberry.

    D'ambrosio Gelato
    Need a caffeine buzz while you sate your sweet tooth? Ballard gelateria D'ambrosio has rolled out a new affogato menu that combines their scoops with espresso. Options include the Il Bronte (pistachio gelato, espresso, whipped cream, and crushed pistachios), Salted Caramel Affogato (salted caramel gelato, espresso, whipped cream, caramel, and Maldon sea salt), Ca Phe Da (a Vietnames coffee-inspired affogato with coconut gelato, espresso, infused condensed milk, caramel, and whipped cream), the Zenzero (lime sorbetto, Rachel's Ginger Beer, lime, whipped cream), and the Matcha Menta (mint chip gelato, matcha latte pour-over, whipped cream, and chocolate sauce).

    Frankie & Jo’s
    The plant-based ice creamery's July flavors include Berries & Fermented Cream, a vegan creme fraiche ice cream with fermented cashew milk plus berry coconut milk ice cream and almond flour lemon cake pieces; Taro Root Sea Foam, made with roasted taro roots, a coconut milk base, house-made sea foam candy, and Theo Chocolate cacao nibs; and Kale Lime Leaf, a zingy flavor made with lime leaves steeped in a coconut milk base and Oxbow Farms lacinato kale.

    General Porpoise
    Though their flavors change on the daily, Renee Erickson's doughnut and coffee shop has lately been stuffing their fluffy doughnuts with seasonal fillings like PB&J and "Nectarcot" jam (a portmanteau of nectarine and apricot, of course).

    Hot Cakes
    Autumn Martin's dessert emporium has announced their new molten cake and vegan shake flavors for July: Smoked Peach Pie Cake, a "dark chocolate cake filled with cold smoked organic peaches, served with a side of vanilla ice cream, buttery pie crust, and more smoked peach filling for good measure," and a Vegan Melon Rose Shake, made with Frankie & Jo's brown sugar vanilla ice cream, honeydew, cantaloupe, and rosewater.

    Lady Yum
    For July's flavors of the month, the macaron maven is rolling out a fruity POG macaron based on the delicious Hawaiian passion-orange-guava nectar; an Almond Joy macaron; an orange cream macaron; and Mermaid, a returning twinkly star-bedecked turquoise macaron that tastes like "sea salt caramel coconut chip with a hint of nutty sweet almond."

    Li'l Woody's
    The burger joint's current weekly special is the Fry Sauce Burger, a special for French Fry Day with fry sauce, French fries, American cheese, and grass-fed beef (available until Monday, July 16). We'll update here when the next week's special is announced.

    Molly Moon's Ice Cream
    The current seasonal flavors at Molly Moon Neitzel's ever-popular ice cream shop include Strawberry Shortcake, made with organic Viva Farms strawberries and homemade shortbread scones; Cherry Chunk, made with organic Alberg Farms dark cherries and Theo dark chocolate chunks; Vegan Cherry Chunk, a dairy-free version with a coconut milk base; and Arnold Palmer Sorbet, a refreshing, frosty version of the classic beverage made with Mountain Rose Herbs breakfast tea and organic lemon juice. Their sundae of the month is the Cherry Buzz Sundae, made with cherry chunk ice cream, homemade dark cherry compote, house-baked crunchy cherry streusel, whipped cream, and a Chukar cherry. Plus, to celebrate their ten year anniversary, the shops will feature a limited quantity of handmade Party Cones dipped in chocolate and sprinkles each week.

    Rachel's Ginger Beer
    The spicy-sweet soda shop's current seasonal is the brightly hued Raspberry x Hibiscus.

    Raised Doughnuts
    The brand-new Central District doughnut shop's first round of monthly specials includes ube coconut, black sesame, strawberry pie, and blueberry basil, available through the end of July.

    Salt and Straw
    The Portland-based artisan ice cream shop's line of seasonal flavors for July all revolve around berries: Goat Cheese Marionberry Habanero, made with Sweet Fire-flavored chevre from Portland Creamery; Birthday Cakes & Blackberries, which tastes like frosting and features chunks of cake and blackberry jam from Oregon Hill Farms; Fresh Sheep's Cheese & Strawberries, with a fresh sheep's cheese cooked into a custard for a "barnyard-funk-cheesecake" base for jammy roasted Fresh Hood strawberries; Wild-Foraged Berry Sherbet, made with mountain berries foraged by Northwest Wild Foods (including blackberries, blueberries, huckleberries, and strawberries); and Raspberry & Almond Frangipane, made with Whatcom County raspberries simmered in cream and sugar and swirled with thick almond frangipane.

    Trophy Cupcakes
    The gourmet cupcakery's current special flavors include Blueberry Pie, a Madagascar vanilla cake filled with house-made blueberry pie filling and topped with vanilla buttercream, a farmers market blueberry, and a piece of flaky pastry crust; Chocolate Graham Cracker a.k.a. S'more, a Martha Stewart-approved flavor originally created when Trophy appeared on the domestic mogul's TV show, with Valrhona chocolate cake, toasted marshmallow meringue frosting, and bittersweet chocolate graham cracker crust; Strawberry Lemonade, fresh lemon butter cake filled with strawberry jam and topped with strawberry buttercream; and Peanut Butter and Jelly, a Madagascar bourbon vanilla butter cake filled with strawberry jam and swirled with strawberry and peanut butter buttercream and adorned with pastel confetti sprinkles.

    Trove
    Rachel Yang and Seif Chirchi's Capitol Hill noodle joint's monthly special is a refreshing chilled noodle dish with soba, beef, white kimchi, and egg, perfect for hot summer days.

    Former NBA player Kermit Washington, who is best remembered by many for a 1977 on-court brawl in which he landed a punch that fractured Rudy Tomjanovich’s face, was sentenced to six years in federal prison for charity fraud. Washington spent his career in the NBA with several teams, most notably with the Portland Trailblazers and Los Angeles Lakers. He was named to the All-Defensive team twice, and appeared on one All-Star team. When his playing days ended, Washington became a representative with the National Basketball Players Association (NBPA) and chaired the charity he founded, The Sixth Man Foundation.

              Re: Job Search Hell      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    I feel your pain. Sounds like every single job search I've ever had in my life (I believe there were at least 8, before that it was just "fill out this application and we'll either hire you or we won't"). Sadly, job culture, corporate culture, work 'til you die, join our cult and fit in or die, capitalist culture is not going to change anytime soon. Change your perspective, think of it as a personality test or a philosophy test or whatever gets you through it. No one with a soul has answers to these inane questions. The answer to every single one is I WANT TO BE ABLE TO PAY MY BILLS AND LIVE MY LIFE. The people interviewing you don't actually want your answers to these questions. They want to know if you know about their company, what their culture is like, and most importantly (the only thing that matters, honestly, and I'll never get over it - but I know it to be true, since I've been fired from numerous jobs where I did a shit ton of work) DO YOU FIT IN AND WILL THEY LIKE WORKING WITH YOU?

    The only thing worse than the hell you are stuck in right now is not being able to work. I haven't been able to work on what will soon be 11 years. I'd give anything to be well and have to wake up and go out tomorrow and answer stupid and unimaginative questions over and over and over, trying to get a job. I'd love to be able to live where I want to live, be able to drive a car again, be able to walk without braces, a walker, or having to use a wheelchair, to not have more doctors in my contacts than family and friends, to not have to take medications 4X a day, to not be in constant pain, to not have to be dependent on someone else to do the simplest tasks of daily living, and to not be facing a progression of disability and ultimately a death that would make most people put a bullet in their head.

    Everything is relative and everything can be viewed through the lens of "this is shitty." And then there's a whole different level of shitty and scary.

    I hope you find a place where you want to work and they like you enough in the interview to hire you so that you can get off the interview wheel. You're not alone - for the most part everyone has to do it. Good luck.

    “Don’t fuck with a guy from Florida.” by Anonymous

    I moved to town in February and secured a room online. Based on the pictures and our correspondence, I thought that my 900 bucks a month would get me a chill space where I could sleep, live, and study. I thought wrong. You inconsiderate alcoholic assholes partied every night and were gross slobs. When I found out I was paying 40 percent more than any of you, I knew I had to GTFO. Two months in and I gave notice. You guys got even worse, and I couldn’t get out of there fast enough. After you refused to give me my deposit back, I realized I could either go to court or get revenge. Revenge it was. I smashed raw shrimp into the dryer. I topped off everyone’s shampoo with morning asparagus pee. I also wiped my ass on the corners of your bedsheets and sprinkled my pubes in a bag of micro-greens. Don’t fuck with a guy from Florida.—Anonymous

              Nancy Review: More Frustrating Than Mysterious      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    A movie in which very little actually happens. by Ciara Dolan

    It’s impossible to describe the titular character in Nancy, writer/director Christina Choe’s feature debut, with any degree of certainty. Everything about her life is shapeless and fluid, filling whatever void it’s invited into: The 35-year-old Nancy (Andrea Riseborough) works as a temp and still lives at home in small-town New Jersey with her ailing, overly critical mother (Ann Dowd). She spends the rest of her time and energy maintaining several different online identities and telling lies about vacationing in North Korea and being pregnant.


    Both Nancy the person and Nancy the film live in a vacuum where it doesn’t actually matter what’s true and what isn’t.


    Nancy’s elaborate lies make her seem untrustworthy, but never malicious—maybe she thinks her stories are true, or maybe they’re embroidered half-truths. But the stakes are raised shortly after the death of her mother, when Nancy sees a news segment on TV about an older couple—professor Ellen (J. Smith-Cameron) and psychologist Leo (Steve Buscemi)—whose daughter disappeared 30 years ago. Nancy does the math, compares her own features to the artist’s rendering of the missing girl (she’s got Buscemi eyes!), and becomes convinced that she was kidnapped as a child and these are her real parents.

    Nancy is being sold as a psychological thriller, and while there’s some extremely subtle suspense, and while Nancy’s meeting with Ellen and Leo certainly breeds some uncomfortable tension, the plot is really fueled by all three characters’ desperation for and fear of the truth. But they’re reluctant detectives: At one point Ellen explains, “People get taken from you, just like that. We have to appreciate what we have now. It’s the only thing that’s real.”

    So instead of searching for concrete answers, both Nancy the person and Nancy the film live in a vacuum where it doesn’t actually matter what’s true and what isn’t. The focus is more on the sadness that inspires people to lie, both to each other and to themselves. It’s obvious that something traumatic happened in Nancy’s childhood, and though she’s a frustrating protagonist, her willingness to shapeshift and become whatever other people want her to be is relatable—she just wants to make sense of her existence.

    Yet while Nancy’s drama can feel real and intense, the film’s ultimately more frustrating than mysterious. Very little actually happens! Sure, each scene is saturated with nebulous subtext, and yes, the truth might be irrelevant—but it’s still unsatisfying for a story to reveal so little.

              Three Identical Strangers Is Heartwarming, Then Haunting      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Tim Wardle’s compulsively watchable documentary goes to some dark places. by Ned Lannamann

    If Three Identical Strangers were a book, it would be the kind of page-turner that you devour in a single weekend. Unlike most paperback potboilers, though, Three Identical Strangers’ bizarre, emotional rollercoaster lingers with you—and not merely because it all actually happened. Tim Wardle’s documentary ends up taking viewers to a very dark place, and, even as it remains a compulsively watchable and digestible experience, it refuses to offer the kind of clear-cut resolution we demand from mysteries.

    All of this makes Three Identical Strangers an easy film to recommend but a difficult one to synopsize. Its twists and turns, from euphoric highs to shattering lows, are best experienced knowing as little as possible, so I should be careful. Or maybe I’m making too big a deal out of it: Many of the events in the movie are public knowledge—some were big news in their day—and there’s even another documentary, Lori Shinseki’s The Twinning Reaction, that covers much of the same ground (a chunk of it aired in March on 20/20).


    All of this makes Three Identical Strangers an easy film to recommend but a difficult one to synopsize. Its twists and turns, from euphoric highs to shattering lows, are best experienced knowing as little as possible.


    But let’s assume you’re going in cold. The film’s opening scenes possess their own kind of page-turning fascination, and apart from some awkward reenactments, Wardle unspools the yarn with incredible tact and technique. A 19-year-old student, Robert Shafran, goes off to college in 1980, and arrives on campus only to have his new classmates—total strangers—behave as if they already know him. It’s eventually determined that he’s been mistaken for Eddy Gallan, another student, and within a matter of hours, Robert and Eddy, both raised by adoptive parents, are staring at each other and realizing they’re long-lost twins. Their story is treated as a type of feel-good, can-you-believe-it soap opera by the newspapers—and the very photos published of the identical Robert and Eddy catch the attention of a third look-alike, David Kellman, who turns their reunited-twins story into a reunited-triplets one.

    The three brothers quickly make up for lost time, becoming inseparably close as they turn into tabloid sensations. The archival footage from the early ’80s is indescribably charming: All three men, with huge, toothy grins and matching curly hair, look deliriously happy. We see them on talk shows like Donahue, where they emphasize their similarities: same mannerisms, same vocabulary, same brand of cigarettes, same taste in women. And simultaneously, we think we can maybe detect an undercurrent of sadness, a hint of what they’ve lost in the years they’ve been apart. But the film moves so swiftly and compulsively through this first phase of the story that as soon as you begin to form a question—“Okay, sure, these guys are eerily similar, but what about...?”—you’re thrust into the next big revelation. There’s even a subplot about one of the brothers being involved in a murder, which is dismissed almost as quickly as it’s introduced. This movie is not about that story.

    The first signal that something isn’t quite right is the absence of Eddy from the modern-day interview footage. And Robert and David, looking significantly less alike than they did in 1980, don’t just look older—they look worn, sad, broken. So what happened in the intervening years? Were these three men so eager to redefine themselves in terms of their new status as celebrities—even opening a trendy Manhattan restaurant called Triplets—that they ended up muting their own identities? And how on earth did they get separated in the first place?

    I wouldn’t dream of answering these questions—but Three Identical Strangers does, to shocking and profound effect. And the questions it doesn’t answer are even more fascinating.

              Man says he left baby after car crash because he was heavy      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — A man told investigators he left a 5-month-old baby boy in the woods after a weekend car crash because the baby was very heavy, court records said.

    Officers found the baby — cold and hungry — under a pile of debris and sticks early Sunday, several hours after the crash.

    Francis Carlton Crowley, 32, is scheduled to appear in court in Missoula Tuesday on charges of assault on a minor and criminal endangerment.

    Deputies were called to Lolo Hot Springs at 8 p.m. Saturday because Crowley was creating a disturbance and threatening to fire a gun, Missoula County prosecutors said. Officers learned he and the baby had been in a crash earlier that day.

    Crowley was disoriented, likely because of drug use, and unable to help officers find the baby or say how long ago the crash had occurred, charging documents said.

    "Officers continued to search in the various areas where the defendant stated the baby was located, but they had difficulty given the defendant's numerous inconsistent statements about the baby's whereabouts," court records said. Crowley variously said the baby was lying on the side of the road or had died and was buried in the woods.

    Federal, state and local agencies joined the search, and U.S. Forest Service Officer Nick Scholz arrived with an off-highway vehicle. He and Missoula County Deputy Ross Jessop followed a forest road on which Crowley said he had traveled. They continued on a game trail where they spotted small-diameter trees that had been damaged. Eventually, they spotted Crowley's crashed car, but the baby was not inside, court records said.

    This photo shows a 5-month-old infant with dirt under their fingernails after authorities say the baby survived about nine hours being buried under sticks and debris in the woods. (Missoula County Sheriff's Office via AP)

    Officers followed a trail of personal items, including baby formula and a diaper bag, down the slope from the crash. Jessop and Scholz then searched up slope from the crash, following a game trail until they heard a faint noise about 2:30 a.m.

    Jessop found the baby face down, covered in small sticks and dressed in only a wet and soiled onesie.

    The baby was taken via ambulance to the hospital. One the way, the baby coughed up small sticks, the charging document said. He was treated for dehydration, lack of food and scratches, cuts and bruises and was placed in the custody of the Department of Public Health and Human Services.

    Crowley, who acknowledged using methamphetamine and bath salts, was jailed, with his bail set at $50,000.

    "For all of us at the sheriff's office, this is what we call a miracle," the sheriff's office said in a statement Monday. "For the officers who were present for this event, it's especially hard knowing what this small baby endured in the last 24 hours."

    Crowley is from Portland, Oregon, and was previously arrested in June in Missoula on a fugitive warrant from Oregon, the Missoulian reported. Crowley was released when Oregon officials decided not to extradite him, Deputy Missoula County Attorney Jason Marks said.

    The nature of Crowley's relationship to the baby was not immediately clear. There was no information on whether Crowley had an attorney.

    On Tuesday, July 10, 2018, members of the Portland Police Bureau Central and North Precincts' Neighborhood Response Teams (NRT), assisted by members of the Drugs and Vice Division and the Tactical Operation Division's Special Emergency Reaction Team (SERT), served a search warrant, arrested two suspects and located illegal drugs at a residence in the 3100 block of Southeast 21st Avenue.

    This investigation began on June 21, 2018, when area residents contacted Portland Police regarding suspected drug activity at a residence in the 3100 block of Southeast 21st Avenue. Members of Central Precinct's Neighborhood Response Team contacted multiple concerned community members during the investigation. Based on information gathered by the officers, investigators applied for and obtained a warrant to search the location.

    As the warrant was served, two suspects were taken into custody. Officers also located and seized as evidence heroin, methamphetamine and cocaine during the search of the location.

    The two suspects that were taken into custody during the search warrant were identified as 42-year-old Dustin J. Fink and 43-year-old Carlo J. Celestine. Fink and Celestine were lodged at the Multnomah County Jail. Fink was lodged on a warrant for a previous conviction of Delivery of Heroin. Celestine was lodged on a probation violation warrant for a previous conviction of Possession of Methamphetamine.

    Investigators are continuing this investigation and ask anyone with information about Fink, Celestine or the location to contact Central Precinct Neighborhood Response Team Officer Matthew Jacobsen at 503-823-0097 or Matthew.Jacobsen@portlandoregon.gov.

    ###ORIGINAL MESSAGE BELOW###

    On Monday, July 9, 2018, North Precinct officers responded to the Goodwill, located at 5950 Northeast 122nd Avenue, and shortly afterwards to the Safeway, located at 6901 Northeast Sandy Boulevard. On both occasions, the officers responded to the report that an adult male had inappropriately touched a juvenile female in a sexual manner.

    During the separate investigations, the officers gathered information from witnesses and victims. Based on the information gathered, the officers believed the incidents were perpetrated by the same suspect.

    North Precinct officers contacted detectives with the Portland Police Bureau Family Service Division's Child Abuse Team (CAT). Child Abuse Team detectives responded to assume the investigation. During the investigation, detectives learned of a possible residence of the suspect. Child Abuse Team detectives arrived in the 1900 block of Southwest River Drive and contacted the suspect and took him into custody without incident.

    The suspect was identified as 55-year-old Ricardo Sanchez-Garcia. Sanchez Garcia was lodged at the Multnomah County Jail on two counts of Sex Abuse in the First Degree.

    Further investigation indicates that there may be additional victims. Anyone who may have been victimized by Sanchez-Garcia or has additional information about this investigation is encouraged to contact Detective Stephen Gandy at 503-823-0185 or Stephen.Gandy@portlandoregon.gov.

              Zach LaVine's big contract brings last summer's Wolves trade into focus      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Welcome to the Monday edition of The Cooler. Nothing’s hotter than The Cooler, I always say. (I never say that). Here we go: *Aside from the opportunity to acquire a genuine star player in the prime of his career — which is reason enough — the Wolves dealt for Jimmy Butler last summer because there was a lingering fear that signing three extremely young players to huge contract extensions would be a bad idea. The Wolves were in that position because of good drafting and trades from the late Flip Saunders. He turned Kevin Love into No. 1 overall pick Andrew Wiggins in 2014 and drafted Zach LaVine No. 13 overall that year. (Whatever shortcomings both players have, both of those were strong moves). Flip then nabbed Karl-Anthony Towns at No. 1 overall in 2015. Wiggins already signed a max extension last offseason. Towns is due for one this season. LaVine, the third wheel in that young Big Three, was always the wild card in all that but also emerged as enough of a dynamic scorer in years 2 and 3 before his knee injury that he figured to command a big contract as well. Just how big became official over the weekend when the Bulls matched a four-year, $78 million offer sheet from the Kings after LaVine reached restricted free agency. Assuming Towns signs an extension this offseason that kicks in next year and averages somewhere around $30-35 million per season (yes, you read that right), and Wiggins is already making close to an average of $30 million per season, adding LaVine to that mix at close to $20 million would be pricey. The Wolves will face the same conundrum with Butler, but Jimmy is far more accomplished that LaVine on both ends of the floor. LaVine was a good dude and an emerging talent, so it would have been fun to have him around. But in pure basketball terms, I’d rather have Butler on whatever contract he gets than LaVine on his new deal. If Butler walks? I might rather have the cap space than LaVine’s contract. “I’m happy that I have this contract,” LaVine told reporters Sunday, “and I’m happy that I have a little extra motivation to go out there and prove it to some people that don’t believe in me.” *Damian Lillard sounds kinda sort of happy to still be in Portland. “I’m not unhappy,” Lillard told The Oregonian on Sunday. “I love where I live. I love the organization. I love our coaching staff. I love where I am.” If he ever tried to force a trade to, say, Minnesota … that would be cool. *Former NBA player Tyler Honeycutt died this weekend of a reported self-inflicted gunshot wound after a shootout with police. Honeycutt starred at UCLA and played 24 games with the Kings earlier this decade. He was only 27 years old. Former Minnesota prep standout Royce White, who was drafted in the first round of the 2012 NBA draft by the Rockets and has since become a determined and necessary mental health advocate, tweeted about the response on Monday.

              Comment on Fighting one fight but ignoring the other… US liberalism… by Dermot O Connor      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    As mentioned before, I live in Portland Oregon, ground zero of American 'Liberalism'. Most US liberals would drink their own diarrhea rather than think of class / economics. They are obsessed with race / identity to a degree that is now well in the realm of mental illness. The idea that you can do more to combat racism or sexism via a direct attack on economic grounds does not and will not occur to them. Their mindset is that of a liberal: all social events are seen as the cumulative result of individual actions; free Enlightenment rational actors acting in their own self interest (18th century hogwash, of course). Hence the incessant obsession with focusing their ire on individual villains - and every week produces a new baddie who can be excoriated with hashtags on twitter. Note that corporate america LOVES this liberal identitarian garbage: they're the first to use it in order to signal their virtue...because using liberal idpol allows them to maintain business as usual, while continuing to gouge workers and the planet. You should see the look on the face of liberals here when I start talking. It's like they've met someone from another planet. "What, liberalism is the ideology of corporate america? Does not compute". I recently returned from 3 days in San Francisco, ground zero of the tech bubble. You wouldn't believe the homeless situation there. Most streets in the city are lined with tents or shuffling derelicts. But the liberal people there barely talk about it, they're more focused on issues of 'social justice' around race/ethnicity, sex, etc etc etc. Which won't do any of them much good 10 or 20 years from now when they can't afford a dentist. Sure, you'll hear the occasional slogan from the liberals about 'structural racism' or 'structural racism' or some other post modern culture war cliche, but every time they man the barricades, it's to attack some lone individual transgressor. Always they attack the man, they never take a shot at goal. I don't know what % of US libs do talk about class / economics, but would hazard a guess that it's about the same % of Irish who vote for PBP/Sol.

    Portland, Dorset: The gentle greens and yellows of our last visit are now bleached and tarnished, tall grasses faded to blond, wood spurge dried to rust

    A stone archway, framing sea and sky. The threshold to another world, a world unsuspected by visitors hurrying over the windswept plateau to the Bill, Portland’s beak-like southern tip.

    Under the eye of Rufus Castle, we wander down between spindly ivy-sashed trees and warm, lichened walls bright with valerian, to the cove where shuttered beach huts curve round a bank of big, pale stones. The sense of otherness increases. Earlier this year, we were met by the sight of three pebble minarets silhouetted against the waves. If we hadn’t taken photos, we’d have thought we had dreamed them.

              Trump pardons Oregon ranchers whose arrest lead to standoff      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    US President Donald Trump granted two full presidential pardons [White House press release] Tuesday to Dwight Lincoln Hammond, Jr., and his son, Steven Hammond, cattle ranchers in Oregon who were serving 5-year sentences for arson on federal land. It was this sentencing that set off a 41-day armed occupation of Oregon’s Malheur National Wildlife Refuge [official website] in 2016. While the two were acquitted on most charges regarding the incident, Dwight Lincoln Hammond, Jr. had served three years of a five-year sentence. Steven Hammond was on his fourth year. “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. Justice is overdue for Dwight and Steven Hammond, both of whom are entirely deserving of these Grants of Executive Clemency,” said a White House statement. In October 2016, a jury in Portland acquitted…

    Ex-Gonzaga big man Zach Collins did not play for Portland. Gary Trent Jr. scored 20 points to lead the Trail Blazers.

    Wade Baldwin IV scored 16 points and Jake Layman scored 15 points for the Trail Blazers. Portland made 11 of 21 threes and outscored the Spurs 24-11 at the free-throw line.

    Jaron Blossomgame and first-round pick Lonnie Walker IV each scored 12 points and Olivier Hanlan and Trey McKinney-Jones added 11 for the Spurs.

    Here’s a look at how other local players fared:

    Sacramento Kings 94, Memphis Grizzlies 80

    Ike Iroegbu (WSU/Kings): 5 minutes, 1 rebound, 0-for-1 FG.

    Los Angeles Lakers 109, New York Knicks 92

    Johnathan Williams (GU/Lakers): 23 minutes, 9 points (3-for-5 FG, 1-for-2 3-pointers), 2 rebounds, 1 block.


              Former Idaho star Victor Sanders stays positive despite lack of playing time at summer league      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    LAS VEGAS – Control what is controllable.

    It’s a motto Victor Sanders abides by and from which he never wavers.

    For instance, when the NBA Summer League opened last Friday on the UNLV campus, he saw zero playing time with the Denver Nuggets, who told him and several others they’d be using a 10-man rotation during the tournament and they weren’t a part of it.

    Even a 21-point lead over Minnesota heading into the fourth quarter didn’t get the former Idaho standout out of his warm-ups.

    It was out of Sanders’ control, and he’s fine with that.

    “I just control what I can do and how I put my effort into whatever I’m doing,” Sanders said. “I can’t control who likes me, I can’t control who thinks I’m good enough or not good enough. But what I can control is how hard I play and how much I work on my game.”

    Which is exactly what he’s been doing, during the five-day minicamp before the league started, and during team practices with players who are in the regular rotation.

    Rather than mope, Sanders knows he can be seen by any coach, at any time. So, he said, just making a summer roster is a big opportunity and a blessing.

    “And a great experience,” the Portland native said. “Having these opportunities is a testament to my hard work and to everything that I’ve put into this game since I was young.”

    Such as when he annually visited Las Vegas with AAU teams while his father spent time in prison after being convicted of assault and kidnapping. By the time LaWan Sanders was released, his son was a junior in high school.

    Being fatherless for 10 years was simply another uncontrollable circumstance he overcame, and never used as an excuse. Instead, he honed in on his long-range game, as he graduated from Idaho as one of the school’s most prolific shooters. Sanders scored 1,804 points, drained 272 3-pointers and made 440 free throws – the most by a Vandal – during his four-year college career in Moscow, Idaho.

    “I’m just really proud of Victor and the way he has came through so much,” LaWan Sanders said. “Throughout that whole situation, my son missing me for all those years, I was able to write letters (and) stay connected to him, keep that relationship tight-knit and that’s how we was able to build.

    “It’s a learning process for him, he’s so much of a positive now. I’m totally opposite of him. I just try to show him, stuff that happened to me, it don’t have to happened to you. God has a better plan for you.”

    A plan that after years of visiting Las Vegas with club teams or to watch the summer league as a fan, has him in a uniform and on an NBA roster.

    “It’s just a great experience and a blessing overall,” Sanders said. “When you’re in an NBA environment for five days, you get a real taste of what the NBA life is like. It’s something that I want more of. It’s something that I’m willing to work very hard for, work on my game and just be the best player that I can be in any system that I go to and just have a great attitude all around.”

    Put simply: controlling what is controllable.

              Riots: 3 Places All Hell Has Broken Loose In The Last Few Days      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Authored by Daisy Luther via The Organic Prepper blog,

    A lot of people like to think that the SHTF is some distant thing that probably won’t ever happen. But, in reality, it happens every single day, someplace in the world. Riots have occurred all over the world recently, stranding travelers, destroying property, and causing serious injuries and death.

    Here are 3 different places where all hell has broken loose in just the past few days.

    Haiti

    It’s a bad time to be in Haiti right now. Apparently, an increase in gasoline prices has caused people to take to the street. A number of American missionaries are currently hunkering down in fear for their lives. They’re unable to get out of the country because many airlines have canceled all flights in and out of the country.

    Savannah Peek, a missionary with a team from Richmond County, North Carolina, told WSOC said they are terrified for their lives…

    …“We heard gunshots start and they were very close,” said Peek. “At this point, we all dropped immediately to the ground. We’re all on our hands and knees. Everyone’s screaming, everyone’s crying.”

    Peek said guns were handed out to civilians for protection.

    “People started passing out guns to civilians because we thought the (men) were about to break in and rob us, kill us, start a fire. We had no idea,” she said. (source)

    The US Embassy in Haiti issued the following alert:

    Due to continuing demonstrations, roadblocks, and violence across Port-au-Prince and throughout Haiti, U.S. citizens should continue to shelter in place.  Do not travel to the airport unless you confirmed your flight is departing.  Flights are canceled today and the airport has limited food and water available.

    Telecommunications services, including Internet and phone lines, have been affected throughout Haiti.  It may be difficult to reach people through normal communication methods.

    U.S. Embassy personnel are still under a shelter-in-place order.  The embassy will continue to monitor the situation.

    The U.S. Embassy will be closed for routine services Monday July 9.  Non-emergency appointments will be rescheduled for a later date.  The Embassy remains open for emergency U.S. citizen services.

    Actions to take:

    • Shelter in place. Do not attempt to travel at this time.
    • Avoid protests and any large gathering of people.
    • Do not attempt to drive through roadblocks.
    • If you encounter a roadblock, turn around and get to a safe area.
    • Let family and friends know if you are safe. (source)

    Here’s some shocking video footage of the riots.

    France

    In Nantes, a city in France, a battle has been going on between African migrants and the French police for days now, after the police shot a 22-year-old migrant named Aboubakar Fofana. The riots went on for 4 days but eased when relatives of the Aboubakar Fofana said they were filing a lawsuit.

    Initially, police said that the victim was shot because he tried to run over a police officer with a car. Later, they admitted the shooting was in fact NOT self-defense, but an accident.

    The worst of riots looked like a war between police and migrants.

    Ouest-France reports:

    The police forces were deployed massively in the neighborhoods of the rioters. They fired Molotov cocktails at Breil and Bellevue and responded with tear gas grenades.

    In total, 35 vehicles were burned. To prevent a resurgence of fires, since last night, Friday, July 6, the Region has banned the retail sale of fuel and fireworks.

    In the Breil district, the beginning of a fire hit a building of the Nantes Habitat social landlord. The damage, however, seems small: except for some traces of fire near the building, only a window is barred by a sign; the building is intact.

    “Put your weapons, gang of assassins” or “you are going to be afraid in your houses” are the slogans that were launched to the CRS came to reinforcement in the districts. (source)

    According to Zero Hedge, things are only going to get worse in France.

    The  GEFIRA team expect riots in France to become more and more violent and eventually lethal. Like most Western European societies and the US, the demographic change and the gradual replacement will come with a hefty price.

    There are signs that white French bourgeoisie youth will join the violent protests, like Black bloc and Antifa. (source)

    Here’s some video footage of the chaos in Nantes.

    Portland

    And right here in the United States, violent riots have erupted over the Trump administration, political differences, and immigration policies. Portland has been the heart of many political movements since the election of President Trump, starting the day after the election in which Hillary Clinton suffered a surprise loss.

    The riots in the city have been going on for the past couple of months, with some particularly heated moments occurring in early July. A Patriot Prayer rally turned violent when members of Antifa showed up and began pelting them with firecrackers, eggs, and water bottles.

    The counterprotesters were identified as the Eugene Antifa, who named their demonstration“Defend PDX: Patriot Prayer’s Violence Must End.”

    “It is very important that antifascists keep up the pressure so that we can stop them once and for all,” a Facebook event page for the counterprotest read.

    “While many acolytes have broken away from Gibson at this point, the core that remains, largely Proud Boys, have grown increasingly violent,” the page said. “For this reason we must sustain our campaign, and keep up our efforts on as many fronts as possible until they completely cease their despicable activity.” (source)

    The demonstrators didn’t hesitate to fight back and police used firecrackers, smoke bombs, flash bangs and “aerial distraction in an attempt to disperse the crowd.

    This isn’t the first time the groups have gone head to head. They also became violent toward one another in early June and previously, in 2017. Below is a video of what some people are calling “The Battle of Portland.”

    What can we learn from all this?

    I’m all for protesting and demonstrating against things that are unjust. The right to peaceful protest is written right into the American constitution.

    But what we can all learn from this is how quickly something that starts out as a peaceful protest can be disrupted and turned into a violent riot. It can happen anywhere, at any time, and if you are unfortunate enough to be nearby, it can be a life-threatening emergency in some cases.

    Here are the things to remember:

    • Learn to watch the signs and foresee when violence is about to erupt so you can get yourself and your family safely away.

    • Make a plan to keep your family safe during times of civil unrest if it should occur near your home. (This article can help.)

    • Avoid situations that are likely to become violent.

    • Remember that fire is one of the most common weapons used in a riot.

    • If you are traveling when violence erupts, plan to hunker down. Contact the American Embassy for help. DO NOT go to the airport unless you know for sure your flight is definitely taking off.

    • Remember that the police and military may be every bit as violent as the crowd and will not have time to differentiate between you and a protester.

    • If you’re caught in a crowd, move diagonally to get yourself out of the masses. Hold on to children so that you do not get separated.

    The best thing you can do is avoid trouble. The second best thing you can do is know how to handle it if trouble comes to you.

              Hulu Hit ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ Bafflingly Launches Wine Line      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    As far as unlikely merch spinoffs go, Hulu’s new line of Handmanid’s Tale-inspired wines may take the cake -- and such an offer even feels oddly tone deaf given the show's exploration of decidedly serious and prescient themes, including fundamentalism and female subjugation.

    Nevertheless, The Handmaid’s Tale unveiled three varietals today in collaboration with Lot 18 -- an online wineseller that also creates custom wines for other media properties, People reports, including Portlandia and The Bachelor. Each of the varietals was inspired by one of the breakout series’ characters, including: protagonist Offred (portrayed by Elisabeth Moss), fellow handmaid Offglen (Alexis Bledel), and antagonist Serena Joy (Yvonne Strahovski).

    Moss and Bledel’s characters both inspired reds, given that their characters are subjugated women in a future dystopia who are perpetually bedecked in long, crimson robes. Offred’s Pinot Noir is described by Lot 18 as a wine that “will stay with you long after you’ve finished your glass,” while Ofglen’s Cabernet Sauvignon marks “a daring testament to the heights that Oregon Cabs can reach.” Strahovski’s blend, on the other hand, is a white wine -- a Bordeaux Blanc. Her character is part of the subjugating system -- though “a few sips reveal it to be hiding layers of approachable white grapefruit and lemongrass,” according to the label.

    Riprendiamo da Cruxsancta la notizia delle deliberazioni liturgiche assunte dal vescovo della diocesi di Portland, Oregon (U.S.A.)

    Appunti del liturgista
     
    Postura dopo l'Agnello di Dio

    Questo fine settimana ho intenzione di condividere con voi la lettera dell'Ufficio del Divino Culto nell'Arcidiocesi di Portland per quanto riguarda la nostra postura e il movimento dopo il Agnello di Dio. L'arcidiocesi di Portland in Oregon, sotto la guida dell'Arcivescovo Sample, sta collaborando strettamente con ogni parrocchia dell'Arcidiocesi per promuovere la bellezza del Sacra Liturgia. A questo proposito, la nostra comunità qui a Nostra Signora del Perpetuo Soccorso  coopererà a questa iniziativa dell'arcidiocesi nell'attuare la GIRM (Istruzione generale del Messale Romano) con devozione in ogni Liturgia che celebriamo. Ci piacerebbe incoraggiare ciascun membro nella nostra comunità, mentre  cooperiamo con l'arcidiocesi, a supportarci e a collaborare con noi, rendendo bella la Liturgia e attuando nel modo giusto la celebrazione.

    "Con l'inizio della solennità del Santissimo Corpo e Sangue di Cristo (Corpus Christi) quest'anno, l'Arcivescovo Sample ha stabilito che durante la celebrazione della Santa Messa, dopo l'Agnello di Dio, i fedeli si inginocchino. L'attuale Istruzione generale del Messale Romano (GIRM) afferma sotto la sezione riguardo ai movimenti e alle posizioni che: 
    "I fedeli si inginocchino dopo l'Agnus Dei a meno che il Il Vescovo diocesano non determini diversamente."
    In precedenza, l'Arcidiocesi aveva istruito i fedeli a rimanere in piedi dopo l'Agnello di Dio. [L'istruzione generale sul Messale Romano del 2000 - Revisioni e adattamenti per l'arcidiocesi di Portland nell'Oregon.]
    L'Arcivescovo Sample ha considerato che, con la scelta di questa posizione, si otterrà una celebrazione più riverente dell'Eucaristia. Inginocchiarsi è una postura di adorazione e ha fatto parte del Rito della Comunione per molti secoli. Inginocchiandosi dopo l'Agnello di Dio, i fedeli si preparano al momento in cui il sacerdote presenta loro l'Agnello Sacrificato [Ecce Agnus Dei - Ecco l'Agnello di Dio]. Questa posizione di adorazione è la kkpiù appropriata a precedere l'accoglienza della santa comunione. Dopo l'Agnello di Dio, i fedeli devono rimanere in ginocchio fino a quando non si spostano dal banco per ricevere la santa comunione. 
    La tradizione di rimanere in ginocchio dopo il ricevimento della santa Comunione fino a quando il sacerdote è tornato al suo posto è lodevole.
    Coloro che non possono inginocchiarsi a causa di infermità o altro impedimento dovrebbero restare seduti così da non impedire la vista di quelli che si inginocchiano.
    Questo cambiamento ci unirà alla Chiesa universale, alla maggior parte della diocesi nel Stati Uniti e sicuramente alle altre diocesi nello Stato dell'Oregon. Ma, cosa ancora più importante, L'Arcivescovo Sample ritiene che migliorerà la riverente partecipazione dei fedeli alla  Santa Messa e aumenterà la loro devozione alla Santa Eucaristia. 
    Questo cambiamento avrà effetto a partire da tutte le Messe della Solennità del Santissimo Corpo e sangue di Cristo, il 3 giugno 2018. "



    Nota:
    Le istruzioni generali sul Messale Romano del 2002 prevedono, nel paragrafo 43, le varie posture del popolo durante la Messa.
    Questa norma liturgica universale stabilisce che "il popolo stia in piedi...dall'offertorio fino alla fine della Messa, eccetto nei momenti indicati più avanti in questo paragrafo."
    I momenti indicati sono la Consacrazione, "quando si inginocchiano", e durante il periodo dopo la Comunione, durante il quale essi possono "stare inginocchiati, in piedi o seduti". (Congregazione per il culto divino, Notitiae 10, p.407).
    Lo stesso paragrafo consente a ciascuna Conferenza nazionale dei Vescovi "di adattare le azioni e le posture...agli usi del popolo"
    I vescovi americani l'hanno fatto, prescrivendo la pratica Tridentina, Nella quale è previsto come uso americano, messo in pratica nel Messale del 1970, di inginocchiarsi dopo l'Agnus Dei. Nell'adattamento americano delle Istruzioni Generali alla terza edizione del Messale Romano (2002), vi è questa norma:
    43 Il fedele si inginocchi dopo l'Agnus Dei a meno che i vescovo diocesano non decida in altro modo.
    Quindi, la norma per gli Stati Uniti, è di continuare la pratica di inginocchiarsi dopo l'Agnus Dei, a meno che il vescovo stabilisca, per l'intera diocesi, la pratica di rimanere in piedi.
    Non vi è facoltà per le singole parrocchie, di farlo, creando un patchwork (mosaico) di pratiche all'interno della stessa diocesi.
    Per coloro che volessero inginocchiarsi, laddove è previsto di stare in piedi, il diritto di farlo è comunque assicurato dalla Santa Sede. (Colin B. Donovan, STL)

    I recommend Troy Thompson, who is a fee-only certfified financial planner, NAPFA member, and a member of the Alliance of Comprehensive Planners - a national group of planners that emphasizes comprehensive financial planning rather than just investment management. http://www.thompson-advisory.com/



    He does some project work, but mostly works with clients on an ongoing basis using a flat fee retainer rather than a variable AUM fee.



    Disclosure: I’m in the same industry in another area of the country and know Troy professionally. But I have absolutely no financial connection with him or his company.

              Man says he left baby after car crash because he was heavy      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    MISSOULA – A faint whimper in the darkness was all it took.

    Missoula County Sheriff’s Deputy Ross Jessop and U.S. Forest Service Law Enforcement Officer Nick Scholz rushed toward the sound after hours spent searching the Montana woods for a missing infant.

    Jessop was about to take another step when he heard a stick crack underfoot. He looked down to find a cold, wet, soiled 5-month-old boy face-down under a pile of debris.

    “I abandoned any police training or any chance of saving evidence there – I didn’t care,” Jessop, a father of three, told reporters Tuesday. “I scooped up the baby, made sure he was breathing. He had a sparkle in his eye. (I) warmed him up, gave him a couple of kisses and just held him.”

    The baby, who had been abandoned for at least nine hours before Jessop and Scholz found him at 2:30 a.m. Sunday, was cold, hungry and had scrapes and bruises, but was otherwise in good condition. They wrapped him in a coat and carried the boy out of the woods to safety.

    “It was the happiest 15-20 minutes of my career,” Scholz said of the walk out. “I was just stunned. Walking in to this situation, you were mentally prepared for the worst.”

    The baby drank a whole bottle of Pedialyte in under a minute, then drank two more, said Missoula County Sheriff’s Capt. Bill Burt. The baby’s tiny, dirty hand grasped Burt’s finger with surprising strength, then he fell soundly asleep as hospital officials hooked him up to an IV, Burt said.

    The rescue that Sheriff T.J. McDermott called a miracle was recounted moments before Francis Crowley, 32, appeared in court to hear charges against him that included assault on a minor and criminal endangerment.

    Crowley told investigators he left the boy in the woods after crashing his car because the baby was heavy, according to court records. He appeared in Missoula County Justice Court from jail by video, and he broke down repeatedly as he heard the allegations against him.

    Crowley doubled over, then fell to the floor and covered his face with his hands, sobbing. He exclaimed twice, “I love that f——— kid,” and implored the judge not to take him away.

    Public defender Ted Fellman said Crowley had no money and was living near Lolo Hot Springs. Sheriff’s officials said Crowley, the child’s mother and the boy were living in a camp near the hot springs in Lolo National Forest.

    Crowley is from Portland, Oregon, and was previously arrested in June in Missoula on a fugitive warrant from Oregon for a probation violation, Missoula County prosecutors said. He has a string of prior arrests that include burglary, assault, drug and criminal mischief charges, Deputy County Attorney Brittany Williams said.

    The nature of Crowley’s relationship to the baby was not immediately clear.

    Crowley did not enter a plea during the court hearing. Judge Marie Andersen set bail at $200,000 and scheduled his next court date for July 25.

    Deputies were called to Lolo Hot Springs at 8 p.m. Saturday because Crowley was creating a disturbance and threatening to fire a gun, Missoula County prosecutors said.

    Crowley was disoriented, likely because of drug use, and unable to help officers find the baby or say how long ago the crash had occurred, charging documents said. He variously said the baby was lying on the side of the road or had died and was buried in the woods.

    But Crowley described crashing along an abandoned road that Jessop recognized as one that he started searching a little while earlier until it got too rough. He called for a four-wheel drive vehicle and he and Scholz found the wreck beyond the road’s end. They followed a trail of items that included baby formula and a diaper bag before hearing the child.

    The baby was taken via ambulance to the hospital. On the way, the baby coughed up small sticks, the charging document said. He was treated for dehydration, lack of food and scratches, cuts and bruises and was placed in the custody of the Department of Public Health and Human Services.

    For Jessop, who has three daughters, the rescue gave him encouragement in what he described as an emotionally draining job. In 2010, a coroner’s inquest cleared Jessop in the fatal shooting of a man who had tried to shoot the deputy during a late-night traffic stop.

    “To experience this, to have God help me, let me experience something like this, just gives me an extra boost,” Jessop said. “You know what? Cops actually do matter sometimes. We actually do a good job. So it’s pretty encouraging for me.”


              Heroes or criminals? Trump pardons 2 Oregon ranchers      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    SALEM, Ore. – Rugged individualists to some, dangerous arsonists to others, a father and son who were convicted of intentionally setting fires on public land in Oregon were pardoned Tuesday by President Donald Trump.

    The pardon is raising concerns that it will encourage others to actively oppose federal control of public land, which is a sensitive issue in the U.S. West where the federal government owns almost 50 percent of the land.

    Six years ago, Dwight Hammond and his son Steven, part of a family of ranchers in the high desert of eastern Oregon, were convicted of arson. Their stiff prison sentences led armed protesters to seize a national wildlife refuge in 2016 in Oregon near the Hammond ranch.

    Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, a well-known figure in the battle over public land and whose sons led the refuge takeover, welcomed the pardons, saying the Hammonds were victims of federal overreach.

    “Now we’ve finally got a president of the United States who is paying attention to what is going on,” Bundy said.

    Jamie Rappaport Clark, president of the group Defenders of Wildlife, countered that the Hammonds were convicted of arson, a serious crime.

    “Whatever prompted President Trump to pardon them, we hope that it is not seen as an encouragement to those who might use violence to seize federal property and threaten federal employees in the West,” Clark said.

    While the Hammonds were regarded by land-rights activists as heroes, and victims of the federal government, federal prosecutors painted sinister portraits of them at their trial.

    Witnesses testified that a 2001 arson fire occurred shortly after Steven Hammond and his hunting party illegally slaughtered deer on federal Bureau of Land Management property.

    One said Steven Hammond handed out matches with instructions to “light up the whole country,” and another testified that Hammond barely escaped the roaring flames.

    The fire burned 139 acres of public land and destroyed all evidence of the game violations, the U.S. attorney’s office said.

    The jury also convicted Steven Hammond for a 2006 blaze that prosecutors said began when he started several back fires, violating a burn ban, to save his winter feed after lightning started numerous fires nearby.

    The Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act of 1996 called for mandatory five-year sentences for the convictions. But U.S. District Judge Michael R. Hogan said such a lengthy sentence “would not meet any idea I have of justice, proportionality … it would be a sentence which would shock the conscience to me.”

    Hogan instead sentenced Dwight Hammond to three months in prison and Steven Hammond to a year and one day. However, in October 2015, a federal appeals court ordered them to be resentenced to the mandatory prison time.

    The new sentences became a cause celebre for those who oppose federal control of public lands, leading to the armed occupation of Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon for 41 days in 2016.

    One occupier was shot dead by Oregon State Police. They say he reached for a pistol at a roadblock.

    The U.S. attorney for Oregon, Billy Williams, justified the mandatory sentences, saying they’re “intended to be long enough to deter those like the Hammonds who disregard the law and place firefighters and others in jeopardy.” Williams declined to comment on the pardons.

    Dozens of armed people, many from out of state, who occupied the refuge near the Hammond ranch said the father and son were victims of federal overreach. They changed the name of the refuge to Harney County Resource Center, reflecting their belief that the federal government has only a limited right to own property within a state.

    Ammon and Ryan Bundy, two sons of Cliven Bundy, and five other defendants were acquitted in 2016 by a federal jury in Portland on charges stemming from the takeover.

    In a statement Tuesday, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders called the five-year sentences for the Hammonds “unjust.”

    “Justice is overdue for Dwight and Steven Hammond,” she said.

    “Our family is grateful to the president and all who worked to make this possible,” the Hammond family said in a statement.

    Lyle Hammond, another of Dwight Hammond’s sons, said Tuesday that his father and brother have been released from a federal prison south of Los Angeles but he didn’t know their whereabouts.

    Republican U.S. Rep. Greg Walden of Oregon said Trump’s action is “a win for justice, and an acknowledgement of our unique way of life in the high desert, rural West.”

    Oregon Wild, which works to protect and restore Oregon wildlands, wildlife and waters, sees a darker impact from the pardon.

    “From the Bundys to logging and oil companies, special interests are working with the Trump administration to dismantle America’s public lands heritage, and this will be viewed as a victory in that effort,” spokesman Arran Robertson said.

              Thad Matta Dream Team: Additions of Greg Oden, Jared Sullinger Make Scarlet and Gray A Generational OSU All-Star Team      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    For the better part of the last few seasons, Ohio State basketball wasn't nearly as exciting as Buckeye fans would have liked. 

    That is no longer the case. 

    Upon his arrival in Columbus, Chris Holtmann took Ohio State back to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2015, knocking off a pair of top-three teams in the process. And while the current Buckeyes gear up for another postseason run, there is another team wearing the school colors trying to win a title. 

    Team Scarlet and Gray, Ohio State's alumni team in The Basketball Tournament, returns this summer for its second stint in the showcase, hoping to claim the $2 million prize awarded to the winner of the tournament. Last summer, Scarlet and Gray advanced all the way to the semifinals, only to fall in the closing moments. 

    They are back this season with the additions of arguably two of the best big men in school history, as they announced Monday morning that Greg Oden and Jared Sullinger would join the squad. 

    Sullinger played for the team last season, leading the team in scoring and rebounds. Oden, on the other hand, has not played competitive basketball in nearly three years, but should Scarlet and Gray make it out of the first weekend, he will join the team for the third round of the tournament. 

    Alongside the likes of William Buford, Aaron Craft, Jon Diebler, Dallas Lauderdale, David Lighty, Byron Mullens and other former Buckeyes, the team is compiled with some of the best players in the last 20 years to play at OSU. Sullinger said that while it isn't quite an Ohio State dream team, it is probably fair to call it a Thad Matta-coached dream team. 

    "It's a generation team. You can't take away from the Jerry Lucas and the Jim Jackson's. It's the 'what ifs' of the Matta era," Sullinger said. "It's going to be a lot of 'what ifs' that Coach Matta is probably going to be sitting back and watching like, 'Damn, what if they stayed all four years?'"

    Two names that are missing from the Scarlet and Gray roster that would surely be added if they were not still playing in the NBA are Mike Conley and Evan Turner. Conley has spent every year of his NBA career with the Memphis Grizzlies while Turner, who is participating as an assistant coach for Scarlet and Gray, is with the Portland Trail Blazers. 

    Unfortunately for a few former Buckeyes, there wasn't room for everyone on the team this summer. Andrew Dakich, who exhausted his eligibility with a final graduate season at Ohio State in 2017-18, wanted to join the roster, but Scarlet and Gray did not have any spots open. Dakich ended up starting his own team, Big X, which is placed in Scarlet and Gray's region. Should both teams win their first two games, they would meet in the TBT version of the Sweet 16, a matchup that Scarlet and Gray head coach Scoonie Penn is hoping happens. 

    "Listen, I love Dakich. (But I said) Dakich, this is not for you buddy," Penn said Monday, laughing. "If you know Dakich, he can be the biggest pest. 'C'mon Scoonie, I can be a good glue guy.' Yes, he can do those things well, but we have glue guys. 

    "He's lucky if we don't run into him down the road. Imagine Dakich bringing the ball up against Aaron Craft. That's all I have to say."

    Instead of adding Dakich, Scarlet and Gray added former Penn State guard Talor Battle. The former Nittany Lion played in Happy Valley from 2007-2011, leading Penn State to the Big Ten Tournament title game his senior season, ultimately losing to the Buckeyes. 

    His addition gives Scarlet and Gray another point guard, a luxury it didn't have last summer. 

    "He is going to be a big addition to the squad. He is battle-tested. We know he can score," Penn said of Battle. "We know Craft is a defensive, lock-down guy, but bringing in another guy to handle the ball and be a point guard, that will be big for us because we lacked that last year."

    As for wearing the Ohio State school colors, Penn said Battle "will be fine."

    "There is no problem. He knows these guys," Penn added. "We can have some honorary Buckeyes. We have a few, so it's alright."

    Scarlet and Gray isn't the perfect Thad Matta dream team, but considering the players that are available, it might be the closest you can get. With the team Penn has assembled, expectations for the team are as high, if not higher, than they were when the former Buckeyes played as students in Columbus. 

    Now playing for a $2 million prize, Scarlet and Gray is expected to at the very least get back to the final four, if not win the entire tournament, and Penn said his team has accepted the lofty expectations they face.

    Scarlet and Gray
    Last summer's Scarlet and Gray team advanced to the semifinals before being knocked out of The Basketball Tournament.

    "These guys took it hard last year when we didn't win it all. We really felt we should have, we had the best team in the tournament," Penn said. "The fact that it is here, we just want Buckeye Nation to come out and support. If I am a casual basketball fan, I would come out and watch these guys. They are playing right here in the city, so we should have a good crowd and good support, and it will be good basketball to watch as well."

    Scarlet and Gray is set to open the tournament with its first round game played at Capital University's Performance Center on July 21 at 4 p.m. Should they win, Scarlet and Gray would return to the floor the following day at 2 p.m., with both games scheduled to be televised on ESPN.

    Got another snap before we left the parking area on Bridge Avenue: as I said earlier, the west end of the bridge runs right into the hillside. At that end, the roadway makes a T-intersection with Bridge Avenue which allows a good viewpoint for a straight-on view up the road.


    The pavement makes it easy to snap this POV without having to walk out into traffic to do it and really puts the gothic arch details of the tower into viewable aspect, letting them be the star.

    This corner of Portland is quite far out from the city center, nearly seven miles out. Views south and east from the roadway, both NW Bridge Avenue and NW St Helens Road, reveal the working harbor of Portland, the lowest few miles of the Willamette River - wide, cool, and mighty.

    That lift span bridge in the middle distance is Portland's hidden bridge, which doesn't even have a name really, and carries the railroad main line north into the cut through the North Portland peninsula and to Vancouver and points north.

    Though the area on the west side of the river does have a rather descriptive name: Willbridge. 
     

    NW Saint Helens Road travels between industry and tank farms on the left as you're inbound to city center, and on the right, the towering, forested hills of Forest Park. Old, careworn industrial lots and orphaned gas stations predominate on the right hand side of the road as well, with a handful of homes (including two rather incongruous vintage fourplexes) scattered amongst, and a few avenues intersecting numbered in the NW 60s running back only about a block before dead-ending into the hill.

    Very soon on the end of this district, at the cross street of NW Kittridge Avenue, the main road swerves and assumes the name NW Yeon Avenue, Saint Helens Road assuming the role of the old highway and straightlining amongst the industrial district toward the center of town. It's then, more than three miles out, that you notice the great arch of the Fremont Bridge, one of the other iconic river landmarks.

    It's somewhat intimidating when you get to the point illustrated here:


    ... and you're still more than a mile away.

    Several news sources reported that on the last day of June competing rallies were held in Portland, OR. The encounter brought violence. Since an “Antifa” detachment appeared to block a march it disapproved, the news is no surprise.

    The purpose of this piece is not to ascertain who had started the brawl by “retaliating” to a “provocation”. The significance of the scrap is not the event but its implications. The plea here is that a culture of civilized interaction that replaced physical violence with the contest of debated ideas is petering out. Blame modern liberals for that as they make the defense of one’s identity a crime. The point is that, with the fading of the civilized politics of restraint, disturbing perspectives open up. Once the non-violent dispute between reasoned positions is jettisoned in favor of direct physical confrontation, we open up a new age of political decision making.

    It is a defect of our species that, even in the best systems, there will be isolated marginal groups that reject it. One cause is in the realm of psychology and that points to a disorder located beyond the limits of political writing. Their denial of the democratic order’s legitimacy has a practical reason. Under normal circumstances, -even if no order is devoid of problems because perfection does not exist, – radical rejectionists cannot take power lawfully.

    Radical cabals, responding to the salvation promised by their world-view, have a hard core of supporters. It is recruited from the pool of born fanatics, – defectives that abound everywhere and at all times. This element needs a legitimizing moral excuse to justify its deeds when it acts out its destructive instincts. Such fanatics are governed by compulsion and, accordingly, they are immune to arguments or good will. These “True Believers” serve reliably the messianic leaders of extremism. At the same time, the militancy and its platform will only have a limited attraction to the average person. He might have crows to pick, but he is, being moderate, not willing to change the “system” by destroying it. Not an imaginary world is wanted: the existing one is to be improved.
    Those programmed to be radicals form a counter-elite. It benefits from being tight-knit and from rejecting decency’s inhibitions. Freed from traditional values, its righteous “fighters” are enabled to commit any crime. Once decent folks retreat into the permissive inaction of neutrality, being more brutal than the competition becomes a decisive advantage. That might have been the case in Portland.

    What makes these people into effective political gangs is the reason why they cannot win elections and why they are limited to be an “extra- parliamentary opposition” –which is, fittingly the name of a radical tribe in Germany. The inability to gain power legally, therefore needing to grab it in street battles, remains a sectarian act until a crisis – Russia’s defeat in 1917, or Germany’s Depression- destroys society’s fabric. With that, the impression arises that the rubble demands a break with the past’s outdated morality. Millions have died due to this misdirected search for a recovery.

    Once overriding forces shatter society, and the order of rights and obligations is devastated, the principle of liberty under the law degenerates into a hollow slogan. In such a situation, the formal order is in shambles, and its earlier advocates will be disoriented. When structures crumble, loyalty and the points of reference shift. At the end of the process, the individual is isolated in an atomized society. Once persons are deprived of the organizations through which they used to express their interests –family, church, unions, parties- they are weak and “alone”. With that dawns the hour of the armed parties of the True Believers. In this situation, sneering elites that are liberated from the morality of civilization, attain supremacy. Regardless of their small size, being clinched fists, they get the upper hand as their “front” only faces isolated persons. Surmounting the disadvantage of size, their depicted attributes convert into an advantage over the confused mass. With that, as the Nazi anthem put it, the “streets are free for the brown –and red- battalions”. In Lenin’s words, the power to be usurped “lays on the street” to be picked up. Like in a mafia district, the average person is unable to resist and must march along. A paralyzed, society can be kidnapped by those totalitarians that had “out brutalized” their competition.
    To those that accept this narrative, the tendency to formulate policy through the resort to street-level violence will be disturbing. However, timely preventive action to “government by riot” is hindered by cultural factors. Ironically, if politics by violence cannot be stopped, those who claim to represent virtue, and who, once in power, reject all limits imposed on their rule, will abolish the democracy that now limits resistance to authoritarians that claim to exercise their rights.

    In accordance with the Enlightenment’s tradition, democracy affirms worthy principles; due process, the right to assemble, to express opinions. The totality of such provisions assumed that all share its values. It appeared to be “self-evident” that society shares a definition of what liberty is, and how to maintain it in a context determined by limited government.

    This presumed “natural” unanimity is decaying. Its cause is the spreading of ideas produced by incompatible cultures that extend respectability to dehumanizing collectivism. Imported non-democratic traditions abound and claim to express the ethnic identity of their gangland holders. The tendency is that, as all thoughts may be expressed in a free society, to allege that all ideas are of equal merit. The upshot is not freedom but a license to act. The freedom intended to protect the rights of the citizen metamorphoses into the privilege of protected crooks and cuddled fools to act without penalty.

    Due to its principle of tolerance, the open society finds it difficult to defend itself against its principled enemies. The reason is that its protagonists are restrained by their principles that thereby become self-imposed handcuffs. Enemies are at work who wish to subvert systematized liberty by exploiting freedom’s institutionalized principles. This element has become skilled in using freedom’s protection for their subversion that undermines liberty as a system.

    The defenders of freedom as a system in an individualism- and merit-centered democracy must learn that saying “no” can be a must and not a sign of a thick skull. That the law is to be enforced, that letting violators off is no generosity. Oppression is not when agreed upon rules are enforced. Furthermore, legitimate regulations do not require the consent of its violators – not even if they claim to act out their own principle or cultural tradition. Mainly, order and freedom are, contrary to rampaging radicals, not contradictory, but complimentary. Group traits -race, religion- do not legitimize crimes even if an approving subculture demands that as a right. Violation is not a right even if the malefactors share traits that allow them to claim a status for which the privilege of immunity can be invoked.

    Finally, resistance to absurd and extralegal demands does not prove racism, and the resolute defense of the rule of law applied to all is not a sign of “insensitivity”.

    In the light of that, the staunch defense of an order that handles its subjects equally is a right and an imperative as a duty. Democracy’s legitimacy in the developed world does not need the approval of the native or immigrant enemies of freedom. Much rather, it commands that we defend its achievements firmly. The personal security and prosperity enjoyed in democracies commands us to know that, without its order’s unyielding defense, the system’s credibility and utility will be lost. In this struggle, there are no “innocent bystanders” and no “dialogue” can substitute for principled action.

              Chat - Shay and Toni      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Hello dear friends.  Shay and Toni here, having a chat!

    Toni:  an aside, Shay was surprised by my slow southern drawl!

    Shay:  I was! Happy to be here with the only person whose haiku I like. Your writing is as unique as you are. You're clearly drawn to Asian (or strictly Japanese?)styles and customs. it adds such a richness to what you write. What sparked your interest in these things?

    Toni:  When I was a wee lass our next door neighbor Jamie, was Professor of Eastern Studies, specifically Japanese. I was in and out of his house exploring all the incredible things he brought back,including a full Samurai armor. I began writing Japanese forms that summer.  We would sit on his front porch at times while he basically taught me his classes. His house man and valet would bring us glasses of lemonade while we talked and often joined us. He was actually Jamie's life partner but in those days, he posed as servant. Jamie taught me Japanese culture. Then later I began to explore and learn on my own.  Also when I was 11, I was bored and went to the kitchen where my grandmother and started whining. She told me to look after dinner (I started cooking with my father when I was 5) and she went to our library and came back with books:  Whitman, Dickinson, T.S. Eliot and said here, this will keep you busy for awhile. It kept me busy for two weeks and then I read them again. I also used the ladder in the library to get to the good stuff after that.  I started writing that summer.  Long, sad ponderous stuff!  What got you started writing, Shay?

    Shay: My father was a newspaperman and I grew up in a house full of books, mostly my father's, but also those my two much older brothers had left around. Later, at about 16 or 17, I bought a book of poetry by a man named Grover Lewis, called "I'll Be There In The Morning If I Live." I still have it, though it has to be handled carefully after all these years. I bought it at the Little Professor Book Store, and carried it to the lawn of the public library--it was summer--and read it cover to cover. The rest, followed from that; I've been writing ever since.

    My inspirations: Lewis, as I said (though no one knows him), Poe, Dickinson, Rossetti, Whitman, Ferlinghetti, Corso, Russell Edson, Tennyson, Longfellow, the last two for the sheer loveliness of how they make words sound. "The Lady Of Shallot" just blows me away, and I have the famous painting of her on my living room wall, forever in her boat among the lily pads. And of course, Lorca is a huge influence.

    I actually had a 20 year gap in my poetry writing. I wrote and got published maybe 3 dozen times between the ages of 18 and 26, wrote a dribbling of poems for a couple of years, then stopped entirely while I was married, raising a child, and working full time. Then in 2006 I saw an on line forum that had a poetry section and I got started again. Two years later I started Word Garden. The funny thing about being published is that it's a huge kick the first few times, then starts getting routine. My interest in getting published in 'zines is pretty much nil, though i have sent off a couple of things at the urging of friends. No response. I guess they don't like symbolist war haiku.

    Enough about me, girl.  Nature is a constant theme of yours which you portray vividly. What first drew you to the natural world? Does it have a healing property for you? What animals/birds do you love best?

    Toni:  Wow. Your father was a newspaper man.   I'll bet you truly enjoyed being raised by him.

    Shay: I did. He was a huge influence on me, and I was definitely a daddy's girl. 

    Toni:  Nature and mujo (change) is part of the Japanese culture. The seasons and changes are celebrated, observed. I learned as a child the nuances of these changes : the summer nights, soup in the winter, the bare trees against the sky. Jamie taught me a lot. I had a Japanese lover for several years who taught me a lot. He taught me kendo,  Japanese martial arts and how to use a katana. I keep up with the forms and exercises to this day.  I was drawn by Issa and Basho, their haiku and haibun.  I have had a few haiku published in such journals and an anthology but being published isn't the end-all be-all for me. I just write because I must.

    Shay: I will make it my business not to cross you! Please talk some more about nature's influence on you and your writing.

    Toni: We had a huge garden when I was growing up. I loved being in the garden and was often there, sitting in the dirt between rows of corn, reading. I loved dealing with the produce when it was mature - canning, pickling, freezing. Cooking family meals. I loved walking past the tomatoes and touching the plants and then smelling my hands. I was also an avid tree climber and still am. I have an oak tree I climb a couple of times a week and sit and be quiet, observing. Sometimes I read, sometimes I play my violin for the trees.  I was heavily influenced also by Whitman, Dickinson, Tennyson, Bukowski, T.S. Eliot, Basho, Issa. 

    Shay: Question 2 for you--where have you traveled and lived? 

    Toni: I have traveled to Japan several times and have stayed there for a few months at the time, England, Scotland, Ireland, most of the states in the US.  I even planted rice in Japan on one trip.  One of the most poignant trips I ever took was following the footsteps of Basho. That is the day I spent planting rice in a field with local women (https://kanzensakura.wordpress.com/2016/02/28/haibun-rice-planting) . I have lived and worked in Philadelphia, Southampton, NYC, DC. New Orleans, Tampa.

    Shay: I have lived almost all my life here in the Detroit area, but in my 20's I lived 6 years in San Antonio, Texas, and also for more than a year on the island of Luzon, Philippines. I lived in Denver for several weeks during that time, and have traveled all over the USA. Of course, Canada is right across the river from here and I love it there. I've also been to London, England. I've been to Mexico a couple of times. The places I loved best--however briefly or not--were Manila, Portland (Oregon), San Antonio, Austin, Montana (just gorgeous), and Vancouver Canada. I also like little old Windsor, Ontario. My unfavorite places were London (UK), Houston, and L.A. Too big, too sprawly, too busy. And yes, I loved the Filpino food. Sisig and pandesal! But balut is evil. Ugh!

    Toni, you and I are the long and short of it, I'm afraid, with me being 5-11 and you having told me you are under 5 feet tall (4'10"). Being tall has helped shape who I am; how has your stature affected your life or your writing?  

    Toni:  I never realized I was short until some of the kids began picking on me. My father taught me how to box, my grandfather taught me how to fight dirty. Another writer said he would never consider me small because of the force of my poetry and personality. Ha!  I climb shelves in the grocery to get what I need. Like a racoon or a squirrel.  

    Shay: I wouldn't disagree with him! And hey, you could always yell for me, if you'll get the bottom shelf for me. ;-)

    Toni:  Sounds like a plan to me!

    Toni: What makes you laugh?

    Shay: Well, as a good Gemini, I am of two minds about this. I love very low humor, like pratfalls and stuff, and that is part of my love of silent comedy. (I love silent films of all kinds, btw.) My father loved W C Fields and passed that on to me. "It's A Gift" just demolishes me into a giggling lump of mush. I also love dry humor, bon mots, zingers and the like.

    The Producers
    Toni: Being a Scorpio I  too love low humor, the Three Stooges for example. I also enjoy sly acerbic wit and love the Producers. I love winter and fall. I am a night person in the hot summer.  I love England and London, some of the friendliest folk in the world. I am particularly smitten with London 1870 - 1900. I love Tennyson. Dickinson and the other poets you mentioned. In our bedroom I have a picture of Ophelia floating among the lilies by Waterhouse!  Amazing.  We both are drawn to this character.

    Shay: I love that Ophelia painting and pretty much anything by Waterhouse. We'll have to disagree about London. (Toni smiles and thinks she could change Shay's mind - wink!)

    Toni:   I love traveling and finding out about what people eat.  That's how you get to know about people - what they eat! I also love wandering around their markets. You share their food and their culture.  When they cook you something, they tell you something about themselves.  Tell me about living in Luzon. Why did you live there?

    Shay: I was in the U.S. Air Force and was stationed there. Manila surprised me--it is in many ways just like any large city anywhere, but in other ways distinctly Asian. One thing I will never forget is that Marcos had had the ghettos painted pastel yellow. I mean, every stick, pastel yellow. It was bizarre. Other things I recall are how surprised I was to find a baseball stadium in Manila. They told me Babe Ruth once played there. I also saw the Manila American Cemetery. That's a serious, sobering place, much like the Alamo in my old adopted home town of San Antonio. In the Philippines  also visited a beach resort and was out in the water when I noticed I was surrounded by jellyfish. Oops. My friend and I were standing waiting for a boat with a bunch of locals, and when it came up to the dock, WHOOSH! everybody leaped on at once and my friend and I were left standing there with our mouths open. e could only look at each other and laugh. After that, we learned to be quick. I also recall the autobuses. People brought chickens and stuff on the bus. The windows were open and every time the bus would stop, kids would come up and they'd sell you sodas or whatever. These old buses would careen around the mountain roads, with no guard rails, and it was a little bit hair-raising. 

    Toni:  I'll bet!  Scary stuff but, broadening.  Travel is broadening and enriching.  Like that day I spent planting rice with women in Japan.  That changed my life.  Truly.  And you were in the Air Force!  What an adventure.  You know, I feel I need to talk about this for a minute because it has affected both of us deeply for different reasons - Tony Bourdain's suicide.  He and I are of an age and we both had similar experiences cooking the 70 and early 80's.  It was nothing but drugs and drinking in those days.  One day I burned out on cooking.  I had had it with the snooty jockeying around for position and the elitism that is so often found among chefs.  I walked out.  I got my knives together and walked.  I almost suicided that day, almost went home and hung myself.  Now all these years later, Tony Bourdain, for whatever reasons, hung himself.  I met him a couple of times and he was a true delight.  I almost suicided the day I walked away from professional cooking but I didn't. I burned out, he didn't and went on to become an icon. But I lived and he didn't. So I want to say to you all out there, if you are considering suiciding or harming yourself, please talk to someone, please call.  Suicide is never the answer.  800-273-TALK

    Toni: We have chatted so much.  I love your poetry.  It is so sharp and yet, at times it makes me weep with the emotion in it.  Not fakey lovey-dovey emotion but pure, real, raw emotion.  And at times it makes me nod to myself or laugh out loud.  Your poetry is as unique as you (as someone said about me, recently! grin).

    Shay: Really? Who? ;-) 
    Toni:  Well (she drawls slowly) somebody we both know and respect.

    Robbie Knott, Special Effects Guru on ‘The Muppet Movie,’ Dies at 73

    The Hollywood Reporter
    By Mike Barnes
    July 10, 2018

    Robbie Knott, who worked on special effects for such films as The Muppet MovieField of Dreams and The Nutty Professor remake before a scuba-diving accident ended his career, has died. He was 73.

    Knott died June 29 in Portland, Oregon, his son, Brian, told The Hollywood Reporter. His death was due to complications from the accident that occurred in 2006 during a visit to Micronesia, when Knott got the bends and became paralyzed from the waist down, he said.

    Knott helped build the giant Animal puppet with a 15-foot head that came crashing through a roof after accidentally ingesting one of Dr. Bunsen's "insta-grow" pills in The Muppet Movie (1979).
    "There were things like having to pull six-foot custard pies out of your hip pocket within a week — plus a mechanical billboard to throw the pies," Knott told American Cinematographer in a 1979 interview. "We were asked to provide very top-budget film-type gags, with no time to do them. But it was fun."

    Knott's film résumé also included Repo Man (1984), Oscar best picture winner Dances With Wolves (1990), Cabin Boy (1994), Dante's Peak (1997), Donnie Darko (2001), Stuart Little 2 (2002) and his final credit, For Your Consideration (2006).

    He also worked on such television programs as NBC's Remington Steele.

    Born in Hollywood, Knott attended Hollywood High School and was raised near the Paramount lot, where his mother served as an assistant to legendary costume designer Edith Head.

    In addition to his son, survivors include his daughters Misty, Victoria and Scarlet; grandchildren Alex, Andrea and Alexis; and nephew Jeffrey Knott, a special effects technician on films including this year's Avengers: Infinity War and Ant-Man and the Wasp.


    KNOTT, Robbie
    Born: 1945, Hollywood, California, U.S.A.
    Died: 6/29/2018, Portland, Oregon, U.S.A.

    http://jumpingjackflashhypothesis.blogspot.com/2012/02/jumping-jack-flash-hypothesis-its-gas.html


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



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

    Quote: "Dean Batey with Duck River Electric was working to repair a security light on a power line pole outside Manchester when the lift bucket he was in caught fire.

              Original LGBTQ Musical SONATA 1962 To Star Five-Time NYMF Favorite Erin Leigh Peck      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Award-winning playwright Patricia Loughrey and composer Thomas Hodges announce that five-time NYMF alum Erin Leigh Peck (Motherfreakinghood, Grease! on Broadway) will step into the lead role of Margaret Evans in their original LGBTQ musical Sonata 1962.The production, which will make its Off-Broadway debut this August as part of the 2018 New York Musical Festival's Next Link Project, was originally slated to star Becca Ayers who has had to step out of the show due to booking a Broadway contract.

    Previously presented as readings at San Diego's Breakthrough Workshop Theatre and at The Celebration Theater in Los Angeles in 2017, Sonata 1962 aims to bring to light the story shared by many LGBTQ people who experienced medical "treatments" designed to suppress their same-sex desires in the years in which homosexuality was categorized as a mental illnesses. Such brutal medical interventions are the precursors to today's conversion therapies.

    When Margaret Evans' musically-gifted daughter Laura is awarded a scholarship to a prestigious university, it seems like a dream come true. But when Laura falls in love at school - with a girl - that dream is threatened. Inspired by historical events, Sonata 1962 is a heartbreakingly beautiful chamber musical about the length to which a mother will go to save her daughter in a time when same-sex desire was viewed as both criminal and curable.

    Sonata 1962, featuring direction by Katherine M. Carter, will star Ms. Leigh, Romelda Teron Benjamin(Brooklyn), AnnEliza Canning-Skinner, Christina Maxwell, Aaron Ramey (The Bridges of Madison County, The Visit), and Laura Yen Solito (Kismit at NY City Center).

    Performances of Sonata 1962 will take place at The Acorn Theatre at Theatre Row (located at 410 W 42nd Street, between 9th and 10th Avenues) according to the following schedule: Wednesday, August 1 at 8:00pm;Thursday, August 2 at 1:00pm; Friday, August 3 at 9:00pm; and Sunday, August 5 at 2pm & 5pm. Tickets forSonata 1962 and the rest of this year's New York Musical Festival selections can be purchased online atwww.nymf.org

    http://jumpingjackflashhypothesis.blogspot.com/2012/02/jumping-jack-flash-hypothesis-its-gas.html


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



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

    Quote: "Dean Batey with Duck River Electric was working to repair a security light on a power line pole outside Manchester when the lift bucket he was in caught fire. 'He basically jumped from the bucket to keep from getting burned up. And we think the jump is what killed him? Yes,' said Smith."

    Quote: "Batey fell about 15 feet. Duck River Electric president and CEO Michael Watson said Batey did not make contact with the power lines."

    Quote: "For now, investigators simply do not know what sparked the blaze. 'I've never heard of this type of incident. The first fatality ever in the company,' said Watson."

              Underwater Concrete Market: Company Profiles, Financial Perspective, Top Technologies, Upcoming Strategies by 2025      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/11/2018 -- Concrete is the most common and primary material used for construction in the world. Underwater concrete is employed for the construction of complex structures which are partly or fully immersed in water such as dams, bridges, swimming pools, or any other structure where a part or the whole structure lies underwater. The utilization of underwater concrete is not new or recent, it has been used for construction purposes since a long time. In recent years, through improved methods of manufacturing and employment of developed equipment tremendous technological progress has been made. Further improvements have been aimed for with regards to the mix proportions design, the methods of implementation, and the quality of concrete admixtures itself. Different methods of implementation include tremie method, pump method, and hydrovalve method.

    The demand of high strength raw materials such as admixtures, cement, sealants, and adhesives in the construction industry coupled with a large presence of concrete contractors and manufacturers in developing nations such as India and China are anticipated to drive the expansion of the market during the forecast period.

    In terms of raw materials, the global underwater concrete market can be segmented into admixtures, cement, aggregates, and others. The aggregates raw materials segment held a prominent share of the underwater concrete market in 2016, which can be attributed to the superior binding properties of the aggregates. Furthermore, the increasing usage of recycled aggregates in addition to natural aggregates is estimated to boost the expansion of the market for the segment during the forecast period. The cement raw material segment also held a considerable share of the underwater concrete market in 2016. The development of Portland cement is a key driver for this segment. The advanced cement has improved properties which have aided in a hassle-free placement of cement with the help of anti-washout technology. Admixtures and others raw materials segments are projected to expand consistently during the forecast period.

    In terms of applications, the global underwater concrete market can be segmented into hydro projects, marine, underwater repairs, tunnels, swimming pools, and others. Demand for concrete in hydro projects such as the construction of hydropower generations plants has been significant in the last few years. Demand is projected to rise on account of increasing efforts by national governments toward the development and adoption of renewable and clean hydro energy. Demand for concrete in the construction, repair, and maintenance of marine structures such as dams and foundations of bridges has also been considerable in 2016. The repair and maintenance of existing structures is a primary driver for expansion of the application segment. The increase in disposable income to experience lavish lifestyles has been a key factor fuelling the increase in demand for concrete in the construction of swimming pools around the world.

    Key players operating in the global underwater concrete market include Sika AG, HeidelbergCement AG, Conmix Ltd., Five Star Products Inc., and Cemex S.A.B. de C.V.. The companies are focusing on mergers, acquisitions, and other strategies to increase their market share.

    I'm very interested in buying one for my rainy Portland commute. However, there is no way I'm going to plunk down $16K on a bike I've haven't even sat on let alone ridden. I'll wait until I can test ride one.

    My lease is up in 16 months so I have time to wait. If they aren't available to test ride at that point I'll go with something else. I don't buy bikes I haven't ridden.

              Why People With Disabilities Want Bans On Plastic Straws To Be More Flexible       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    It was a hot day at the zoo when Jordan Carlson's son, who has motor-planning delays, got thirsty. "We went to the snack bar and found out they had a 'no straw' policy," Carlson says. "It was a hot day and he couldn't drink."

    Their only option was to leave the park and look for a business that sold drinks with a straw. Without one, her son can't drink beverages. At home they use reusable straws and she tries to keep some on hand when they leave the house, but "I'm human and sometimes I forget," Carlson explains. People with disabilities have to be much more conscious of what businesses and communities offer, Carlson says.

    On social media, many people are ecstatic about the crush of cities and businesses pledging to ban plastic straws once and for all. Ever since a video showing a sea turtle with a straw stuck up its nose went viral, campaigns like #StopSucking for a strawless ocean have gained considerable traction. Seattle this month implemented a citywide ban on plastic straws, Starbucks announced on Monday that it will phase out the use of plastic straws by 2020, and many other municipalities and businesses are likely to follow suit. As one Twitter user posted, "My waiter asked 'Now, do we want straws OR do we want to save the turtles?' and honestly we all deserve that environmental guilt trip."

    But for many people with disabilities, going without plastic straws isn't a question of how much they care about dolphins or sea turtles; it can be a matter of life or death.

    There are many alternatives to plastic straws — paper, biodegradable plastics and even reusable straws made from metal or silicone. But paper straws and similar biodegradable options often fall apart too quickly or are easy for people with limited jaw control to bite through. Silicone straws are often not flexible — one of the most important features for people with mobility features. Reusable straws need to be washed, which not all people with disabilities can do easily. And metal straws, which conduct heat and cold in addition to being hard and inflexible, can pose a safety risk.

    "Disabled people have to find ways to navigate through the world because they know it was not made for us," says Lei Wiley-Mydske, an autistic activist. "If someone says, 'This does not work for me,' it's because they've tried everything else."

    "Also, what if you decide on the spur of the moment to go have a drink with friends after work but forgot your reusable straw that day?" adds Lawrence Carter-Long, communications director for the national Disability Rights Education & Defense Fund. "[That] doesn't leave a lot of room for spontaneity — something nondisabled folks get to largely take for granted."

    On social media, many people have responded to claims that people with disabilities need plastic straws by asking what people did before plastic straws were invented. "They aspirated liquid in their lungs, developed pneumonia and died," says Shaun Bickley, co-chair of the Seattle Commission for People with DisAbilities, a volunteer organization that's supposed to advise the city council or agencies on disabilities issues.

    How much plastic straw and stirrer pollution is out there? Scientific estimates vary. One report suggests they make up more than 7 percent of the plastics found in the U.S. by piece. By comparison, the same report found plastic bottle caps alone accounted for nearly 17 percent. But straws make up a much smaller percentage of pollution by weight.

    Environmentalists have latched onto a figure stating that Americans use over 500 million plastic straws every day — a number that was derived from phone calls made by a 9-year-old boy in 2011. Despite its frequent repetition, there's uncertainty over the accuracy of that figure.

    In a post detailing how the plastic straw became the cause du jour for those who love the oceans, Dune Ives, executive director for the Lonely Whale Foundation, wrote, "We found plastic water bottles too endemic, plastic bags already somewhat politicized, and no viable alternative for the plastic cup in ALL markets." So they chose plastic straws, a "playful#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000" alternative and a "'gateway plastic' to the larger and more serious plastic pollution conversation."

    Most of the plastic in the ocean does come from land, says Darby Hoover, senior resource specialist for the Natural Resources Defense Council. She notes that because plastic breaks up into smaller and smaller particles, it can be hard to tell what it used to be in some cases.

    "Straws are maybe not the biggest source of either plastic pollution or disposable plastic we consume, but they're in there," Hoover says.

    And for many people who want to consume less plastic, she says, straws are low-hanging fruit.

    Yet in general Hoover says that she's wary of outright bans on things. "I personally think we as a country use way too many disposable water bottles. That said, there are times when I'm caught somewhere, don't have a reusable bottle, and want the option to have water and not a sugary drink."

    "They key is breaking habits," Hoover says. "Is something a habit because you truly need it or because you got used to doing it that way?"

    Carter-Long says he's sympathetic to environmental concerns about plastic pollution, but any public policy aiming to reduce the use of straws needs to make accommodations for people who might need them. Ideally, he says, "each restaurant owner [would] follow their own conscience, maybe keep a stockpile of plastic straws in their store rooms for people to use who need them."

    A spokesman for Seattle Public Utilities confirmed to NPR that the city's new plastic straw ban does include a waiver allowing restaurants to give disposable, flexible plastic straws to customers who need them for physical or medical reasons. But Carter-Long and Bickley say there doesn't seem to be widespread awareness of the exemption. Bickley says he asked over a dozen Seattle chain restaurants – including McDonald's and Chipotle – "if they had plastic straws available for people with allergies or need, and they told me no."

    And just because an exemption is written into law doesn't mean businesses will comply, even if they know about it. "So many businesses try to get around already ignoring things with ADA [the Americans With Disabilities Act] until someone says, 'I need a ramp or wider hallway or ramp in bathroom or Braille menu,' " says Jordan Carlson. "Sometimes you need to bring a lawsuit just to have your voice heard."

    Although Bickley serves on a commission that is supposed to advise Seattle's city agencies on disability issues, he says no one consulted the group before passing the plastic straw ban.

    Dianne Laurine, who lives in Seattle, has cerebral palsy, is quadriplegic and has no use of her extremities. "She is old enough to remember a time before plastic and everybody just used rubber straws," Laurine's caretaker, Bill Reeves, says on her behalf, since she has a severe speech impediment.

    "They ended up being disgusting, hard to clean. The advent of plastic in the 1950s changed her life," Reeves says.

    When asked what it felt like when the straw ban went into effect without consulting those with disabilities, Laurine audibly repeated one word, "Awful. Awful. Awful."

    "You're putting this burden on disabled people to come up with a solution. You're not asking companies that manufacture straws to come up with a version that works for us," autism activist Wiley-Mydske says. "You won't even take the bus instead of driving your car somewhere," she says, adding, "How many of you are willing to die for the environment?"

              On the Purpose of NATO & the Cost of European Defense      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    The anxiety leading up to this week’s NATO summit is unusually intense, thanks in large part to President Trump’s fractious relationship with European allies. Trump’s political values are often in tension with that of his transatlantic counterparts, and the White House is inching ever closer to an all-out trade war with Europe and Canada, but the real drama of the NATO summit will center on Trump’s brash accusations of allied free-riding. He recently sent letters to many European capitals berating them for not meeting their pledge to spend at least 2 percent of GDP on defense.

    In a post at the International Institute for Strategic Studies, Lucie Béraud-Sudreau and Nick Childs try to push back on the notion that providing for European defense is all that costly for the United States. While it is true that the $602.8 billion the United States spent on its military in 2017 “was the equivalent of 70.1% of aggregate spending by all NATO member states,” this exaggerates the true cost, they argue.

    Direct U.S. spending on European defense, by their estimate, is only about $30.7 billion in 2017 and $36 billion in 2018, or between 5.1% and 5.5% of the total U.S. defense budget.

    How do they calculate this number? They tally up the cost of three things: (1) direct funding for NATO, including common procurements; (2) the costs of the U.S. military presence in Europe; and (3) U.S. foreign military assistance.

    Now, $30-$40 billion every year is nothing to sniff at. That is an enormous chunk of change for an America that is $21 trillion in debt to be spending on the defense of a region that is remarkably rich, powerful, and safe.

    The problem, however, is that this understates the true cost of America’s NATO commitments. It is misleading to count the U.S. contribution to NATO solely as a sum of direct annual costs. The tally should also account for the indirect cost of maintaining a military big enough to fulfill our security commitments in Europe. It must account for some share of the permanent force structure that would shift to the reserves, or disappear entirely, if the United States wasn’t pledged to treating an attack on Paris, France or Podgorica, Montenegro as synonymous with attacks on Paris, Texas, or Portland, Maine. This more inclusive count is very difficult if not impossible to calculate with precision, but it is more honest.

    Moreover, if the debate about NATO burden sharing boils down to bickering over budget accounting, it would seem like proponents of the status quo are playing hide the ball. The object of U.S. foreign policy is to discourage other countries from spending more on defense. It is disingenuous to pretend otherwise. Free riding is not a bug of U.S. grand strategy, it is a feature of it — a point made perhaps too candidly by the Manhattan Institute’s Claire Berlinski: “How is it, then,” she asks, “that suddenly, we’re consumed with rage that Europe is ‘taking advantage’ of us? How have we forgotten that this is the point of the system? We designed it this way…”

    She’s right. As Hal Brands, one of the leading scholarly proponents of America’s post-war grand strategy, explains in his book American Grand Strategy in the Age of Trump, the United States provides “protection that allows other countries to underbuild their militaries.” Or, as Christopher Layne writes in his book The Peace of Illusions, Washington “used NATO…to foreclose the possibility that the West European states would re-nationalize their security policies.”

    If America is going to have a debate about security guarantees, it must be an informed one. It should not rest on downplaying the true costs of such policies, nor should it pretend that free riding is some kind of mistake. It seems rather futile to defend the strategy by arguing against its very logic.

    GOOD MORNING, BLOGTOWN! All the world's a candy store, he's been trick or treatin'. LET'S GO TO PRESS.

    Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler has made a startling discovery: The mayor's job is NO FUN.

    A man has been sentenced to 33 years in prison for a 2011 rape thanks to a previously untested rape kit.

    Former Portland Trail Blazer Kermit Washington has been sentenced to six years in prison for "spending hundreds of thousands of dollars in charity donations on vacations, shopping sprees and plastic surgery for his girlfriend." Who does this guy think he is? Scott Pruitt?

    Speaking of corrupt criminals, President Trump kicked off the NATO summit in a very Trumpian way—by insulting our allies and accusing Germany of being under the thumb of Russia. OH, THAT'S RICH.

    Trump continues escalating the trade war with China, slapping tariffs on such products as air conditioners, bed sheets, clothing, and televisions. Even stupid Republicans think this is stupid.

    Democrats are rightly worried that Trump's Supremes pick, Brett Kavanaugh (who, by the way, once called Hillary Clinton "a bitch"), will go easy on him when the president is ultimately charged with his many, many crimes.


    The lawyer for former FBI attorney Lisa Page says she won't heed a GOP subpoena to answer charges that she worked against Trump during his campaign.

    Conservative Rep. Jim Jordan is in the political fight of his life after being accused of turning a blind eye to sexual abuse during his time at Ohio State.

    ICE agents in California are accused of confining nine immigrant women in a hot, windowless van for hours, causing them to faint and vomit.

    This will make you feel better: Failed Republican Sarah Palin was duped into appearing on Sacha Baron Cohen's new Showtime series Who is America?, and she is MAAAAAAD.

    More to make you feel better: The 12 young soccer players and their coach who were trapped in an underwater cave in Thailand have been freed and are recovering nicely.

    And this will make you feel better, too: "Neo-Nazi Site Daily Stormer Takes Down Pepe Images After Getting Copyright Claims From Its Creator."

    In SPORTING NEWS: France defeats Belgium 1-zip to gain a spot in the World Cup finals.

    Now what about this WEATHER we're having: Here comes that HOT streak, with a high of 88 today and 95 tomorrow.

    And finally, this magician really confuses his dog (and me) with his disappearing act.

    Emily Cole, a nanny in Portland, Maine, was visiting Ferry Beach with the kids when they encountered a squirrel eating out of a condom. The footage, captured on July 9, shows a squirrel munching on something inside a condom - it doesn't seem to be nuts. It looks like a balloon says one of the kids. Is there stuff inside of it? Emily can't believe what she is witnessing. 'Oh my god!' she keeps saying in the video. She could have used the experience for a teachable moment but decided to let the kids assume it was a balloon. Emily writes: ''When we pulled into our parking spot the kids yelled squirrel. ''I looked over and couldn't believe what I was seeing: a squirrel munching on a used condom. ''It was a mix of hilarious, uncomfortable and just disturbing. ''As funny as it was, it was also pretty sad to know that we leave our world so trashed, but the utter shock kinda outweighed that part for me at the moment. ''Hope he enjoyed his salty beach snack.''

              The Great Millennial Rent Scam      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    I do not care for the millennials.

    I'm fully aware their generation was the most lied to.
    I'm fully aware they were trained and indoctrinated to be complete tools of socialism.
    I am also fully aware they were essentially trained to be obedient hosts to other parasitic generations.

    These handicaps aside, it's the arrogance and cockiness of this smug generation that gets me.  Never has such a generation been so completely brainwashed and easily duped, yet been so completely convinced of their faux intellectual superiority.  And so I watch them with great amusement as this generation suffers all while assuring me they know exactly what they're doing.

    There is no more justified punishment for them than their own existence.

    But there is more punishment on the way.  And while there is a chance millennials might listen and avoid this punishment, I'm going to have faith in their arrogance and assume they're too ignorant and close-minded to heed this warning.

    The millennials have transferred roughly $10 trillion in their wealth through the higher education scam.  Yes, some of those trillions were indeed spent on quality degrees.  Yes, some millennials (1 or 2 of them, perhaps even 3) are gainfully employed, working real jobs and contributing to GDP.  But the majority of them wasted said $10 trillion on worthless pieces of paper, enriching baby boomer deans and Gen X professors.  What's worse is there was no said "wealth" to transfer.  Nearly all of them had no wealth to give and thus had to mortgage their futures to borrow the money to pay their Baby Boomer and Gen X socialist indoctrinators.

    But if this wasn't enough they're about to fork over (by my estimations) twice that amount.  And this ever-so-roughly $20 trillion in wealth will come from the devil that is known as "luxury apartments."  Aka "rent." 

    Understand that rent unto itself is not a scam like worthless college degrees.  Rent is a real service that provides real value and people should be happy to pay for it.  The real issue is whether that rent is worth it or not.  And here several clouds are forming to create the perfect storm of wealth-transfer from the smartest generation ever to its predecessors.

    First, you had Obama (owned completely by the millennials) triple the money supply and expand upon (admittedly) GW's quantitative easing.  This has flooded the global asset markets, driving prices of stocks, bonds, mutual funds AND real estate up to pre-bubble levels.  While the artificially low interest rates and "free money" was meant to get the economy booming again, all it really managed to do was inflate asset prices.  And since housing prices are at all time highs against, this only drives up rents since low interest rates on high mortgages balances result in high rental rates. 

    Second, we have replaced genuine economic growth and investment with bubble spending.  Be it government spending, quantitative easing, welfare or education spending, there is not any real investment occurring.  This may mean low unemployment, but don't expect wages to come up anytime soon.  And certainly don't expect company pensions and 30 years working at the same place.  In other words, millennials can expect to rent because they don't have the employment stability of those evil nasty racist and sexist 50's.

    Third, and this is the key one, "where all the action is"

    "Where all the action is" is a big lie that older generations have told younger generations for generations.  In the 80's baby boomer land lords in LA told my generation California and Los Angeles was where all the cool hip kids went.  In the 90's is was the Sex and the City gals that convinced thousands of Gen X women New York was the place to be.  But wherever it was, it was a major metropolitan area, with over priced rent and over priced drinks that all 20 somethings were convinced to move.  The only difference is in 1998 I was paying $300 for a studio apartment in downtown Minneapolis.  Today, it goes for $1,200.  But!!!!

    "That's where all the action is kids!"

    And this is how more wealth will be transferred from naive Millennials to Gen X and dwindling Baby Boomer land lords.  With housing prices so high, taxes so high, and all self-inflicted by the socialist voting millennials, nearly every major US town is unliveable.  You need $100,000 just to survive in San Francisco, $80,000 to make a go of it in Seattle, and New York is still the preserve of privileged white grad students or white women who have rich husbands as they finance their faux journalism career at XOJane.  But the millennials will line up in equal droves as they did for worthless college degrees in the 00's because "that's where all the action is."  The cool night clubs are there.  The completely-conformist-but-not-conformist hipster brew pubs are there.  Hot chicks that you're not supposed to like, but like anyway even though you fakely claim to like your tatted up nose-ringed roller derby millennial girlfriend, are also there.  And didn't you see the TV shows and listen to what your professors all said?  The cities are the most open-minded and progressive places on Earth!  That's where all the action is!

    And so to capitalize off of this migration of sheep land lords and land owners are rushing to provide millennials the luxury and over-priced apartments they so desperately want.  Some so pricey they don't even list the price...because if you have to ask...you can't afford it...(but it's where the action is!!!).

    The question is whether the millennials, who are now thoroughly ensconced in their 30's, are going to wise up and start becoming adults.  Are they going to buy property at reasonable rates?  Starter homes in blue collar neighborhoods?  Are they going to move to states where standards of living are higher, but not as exciting as Seattle or Portland?  Are they going to learn to fix their own properties and actually invest in something long term and more valuable than their Creative Writing degrees?

    Or are the going to keep on keeping on like they have?

    I know many of you millennials who tune in to the ole Capmeister are already well down the path of investment and adulthood.  I know you guys are well ahead of your peers when it comes to exercising true independent thought.  But for the rest of your generation, they are going to borrow $30,000 to buy Chevy Cruzes, add it to their $45,000 in student loans, and shell out $2,500 per month for a luxury apartment in the "cool, hip uptown area" because (say it with me now) "that's where all the action is."  Oh, and they'll be stuck in traffic-jammed shitholes like Portland and LA because they won't want to live in fly-over country with the loser "hicks" and their $150,000 ramblers.

    I just don't want to hear these same millennial brats when they're 63 making the same complaints my baby boomer clients do today about "not having enough saved up for retirement."  But something tells me they will and they'll blame it on "patriarchy" or demand the government bail them out of their life-long track record of horrendously stupid decisions and mistakes.

    Oh well, enjoy the decline.

    It was a hot day at the zoo when Jordan Carlson's son, who has motor-planning delays, got thirsty. "We went to the snack bar and found out they had a 'no straw' policy," Carlson says. "It was a hot day and he couldn't drink."

    Their only option was to leave the park and look for a business that sold drinks with a straw. Without one, her son can't drink beverages. At home they use reusable straws and she tries to keep some on hand when they leave the house, but "I'm human and sometimes I forget," Carlson explains. People with disabilities have to be much more conscious of what businesses and communities offer, Carlson says.

    On social media, many people are ecstatic about the crush of cities and businesses pledging to ban plastic straws once and for all. Ever since a video showing a sea turtle with a straw stuck up its nose went viral, campaigns like #StopSucking for a strawless ocean have gained considerable traction. Seattle this month implemented a citywide ban on plastic straws, Starbucks announced on Monday that it will phase out the use of plastic straws by 2020, and many other municipalities and businesses are likely to follow suit. As one Twitter user posted, "My waiter asked "Now, do we want straws OR do we want to save the turtles?" and honestly we all deserve that environmental guilt trip."

    But for many people with disabilities, going without plastic straws isn't a question of how much they care about dolphins or sea turtles; it can be a matter of life or death.

    There are many alternatives to plastic straws — paper, biodegradable plastics and even reusable ones made from metal or silicone. But paper straws and similar biodegradable options often fall apart too quickly or are easy for people with limited jaw control to bite through. Silicone straws are often not flexible — one of the most important features for people with mobility features. Reusable straws need to be washed, which not all people with disabilities can do easily. And metal straws, which conduct heat and cold in addition to being hard and inflexible, can pose a safety risk.

    "Disabled people have to find ways to navigate through the world because they know it was not made for us," says Lei Wiley-Mydske, an autistic activist. "If someone says, 'this does not work for me,' it's because they've tried everything else."

    "Also, what if you decide on the spur of the moment to go have a drink with friends after work but forgot your reusable straw that day?" adds Lawrence Carter-Long, communications director for the national Disability Rights Education & Defense Fund. "[That] doesn't leave a lot of room for spontaneity — something non-disabled folks get to largely take for granted."

    On social media, many people have responded to claims that people with disabilities need plastic straws by asking what people did before plastic straws were invented. "They aspirated liquid in their lungs, developed pneumonia and died," says Shaun Bickley, co-chair of the Seattle Commission for People with DisAbilities, a volunteer organization that's supposed to advise the city council or agencies on disabilities issues.

    How much plastic straw and stirrer pollution is out there? Scientific estimates vary. One report suggests they make up more than 7 percent of the plastics found in the U.S. by piece. By comparison, the same report found plastic bottle caps alone accounted for nearly 17 percent. But straws make up a much smaller percentage of pollution by weight.

    Environmentalists have latched onto a figure stating that Americans use over 500 million plastic straws every day — a number that was derived from phone calls made by a 9-year-old boy in 2011. Despite its frequent repetition, there's uncertainty over the accuracy of tha
