          Drug users think they've finally found a good use for Fitbits      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

Drugs can be bad. But data? That's some good shit.

The most ingenious of consumers, the illicit substance user, has finally found what they claim to be a practical (albeit potentially dangerous) use for Fitbit health trackers — and it's just as sketchy as you might expect. 

Apparently, people are doing lots of cocaine and then checking their fitness tracker to make sure their heart isn't about to explode.

So reports CNBC, which spoke with one San Francisco tech worker about the trend. 

"If someone says, 'Let's do a line,' I'll look at my watch," the 20-something explained. "If I see I'm at 150 or 160, I'll say, 'I'm good.' That's totally fine. Nobody gives you a hard time." Read more...

          Comment on Sourdough: It’s not just for crusty artisan breads. by Kat      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
I too have a starter similar to the Amish Friendship style. It is from an old established sourdough mother. Is there a way I can feed it with flour/water to create more of a San Francisco 'sour' sourdough taste vs the 'mild' flavored dough I get with the potato flake/sugar/water feed? Or is mine just a complete different type of Sourdough and must be fed as directed? Thanks!

I am so glad that my first husband and I came to San Diego from South Bend where I had my first job after college. We wanted to come to CA but didn't want San Francisco cuz I don't like that weather. I love warm weather, and sure enough got picked up with some help from my then Congressman. I did 34 yrs. with SocSec and enjoyed 3 offices in SD Co. There was a rally right off in Ocean Bch, but can't remember what it was about but Frank Gormlie led it. We rented the front of a duplex on Greene St.; The 2 families in the back were Filipino as their fathers were in the military. I tutored the 5 yr. old in English. Next door was a retired Portuguese fisherman and his wife would always call about our car being parked in front of our house even though they had a garage. After 2 yrs. there, we bought a house on Santa Cruz Av. which had much parking available. The neighbors next door above us (on a hill) were a Portuguese family, and the father was captain of a fishing boat, and it was good money; the family then moved to La Jolla, and his Portuguese sister and wife moved from Portugal. They didn't know much English, but were very nice neighbors, and I tutored the 2 kids. One of the paperboys was Portuguese,and his father was an accountant but he wanted to make more money by fishing, so he went on a fishing trip but could not swim. The fishermen gather at night and play cards, etc. and sadly, he drowned on his way to a nearby boat. Then the paperboy's mother died of cancer. So sad. Anyway, a lot has happened in 48 yrs.

          Benildean filmmakers make it to FACINE 25      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   


Wazzup Pilipinas!
Four capstone projects from the Digital Filmmaking program of De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde (DLS-CSB) School of Design and Arts (SDA) will vie for the Best Short Film at FACINE 25: The 25th Annual Filipino International Cine Festival from October 18 to 21 in San Francisco, California.

Among those which made it as finalist to FACINE's short film competition are "Caramel Child" by Kim Timan, "Rufyla" by Coleen Tanco, "Suerte" by Carlo Fajarda, and the documentary "Hope Spots" by Joseph Dominic Cruz.





"Caramel Child," co-written by Timan with Palanca awardee Lino Balmes, is a light drama about a Filipino-American girl Katherine Kaye Jones (Angelica Ulip), or Kakay, who tries her best to look for her absentee father. Kakay's curiosity is triggered by a regional science quiz bee poster and an American client (Savino Bellini) of her mother (Sue Prado). It won Best Film, Best Direction, Best Screenplay, Best Performer and Best Musical Score (Marcus Santos and Joseph Salcedo) at Pelikultura: The CALABARZON Film Festival 2018. It also brought home the Best Screenplay award from De La Salle University’s Indie Un-film Festival 2017 and competed in the short film category of Cinema One Originals Festival last year.




In "Suerte," two student filmmakers are shooting a documentary about the drug trade within their city until it descends into a very dangerous obsession for them. As they go on along with their subjects, they slowly become characters in their own film, crossing the line between observer and creator. The film competed at the Busan International Film Festival in South Korea, 28th Singapore Int'l Filmfest and Taipei Film Festival in Taiwan.




In "Rufyla," a T'boli tribeswoman dances for a living and encounters a dramatic turn of events in pursuit of a better life for her family. The short film is a CineFilipino 2018 student category finalist.

"Hope Spots," a finalist in the documentary category of UP Cinema's Piling Obrang Vidyo, looks into the debut of women wrestlers in a fight sponsored by the Philippine Wresting Revolution. It zeroes in on the local professional wrestling scene, presenting the polarizing sport of pro wrestling through the lens of the homegrown promotions' first female talent.






The competition will open FACINE 25 on October 18 at the San Francisco Main Library and the SF Philippine Consulate. The winner will receive a $100 cash prize and certificate of recognition. Special citations will also be awarded in any category upon the jury's discretion.

Aside from the four Benildean student films, "Hulid" (Lie Together) by BenildeFilm program coordinator Jan Philippe Carpio also made it to the competition. The experimental narrative questions sexual pleasure, voyeurism, detachment and the paradox of public anonymity.

The selected films cover a wide range of format, genre, style and subject, with varying lengths of 45 minutes and less, both student and professional works, including notably films by non-Filipino filmmakers with the Filipino as subject.

"The finalists cover a wide range of genre, format, style and subject, all 45 minutes and less in length, both student and professional works, including notably films by non-Filipino filmmakers with the Filipino as subject," FACINE Director Mauro Feria Tumbocon Jr. said.

Meanwhile, nine full-length films will slug it out for the Best Film and other awards in the main competition from October 19 to 21 at the Roxie Theater, also in San Francisco. Vying for awards in the different categories are "2 Cool 2 Be 4gotten" written by Jason Paul Laxamana and directed by Petersen Vargas; "Bomba" by Ralston Jover, "Kita Kita" by Sigrid Andrea P. Bernardo; "Meet Me in St. Gallen" by Irene Emma Villamor; "Melodrama / Random / Melbourne" by Matthew Victor Pastor; "Ang Pamilyang Hindi Lumuluha" by Mes de Guzman; "Pauwi Na" by Paolo Villaluna; "Tale of the Lost Boys" by Joselito Altarejos; and "Tu Pug Imatuy" written by Arnel Mutia Mardoquio and directed by Arbi Barbarona.

FACINE is organized by the Filipino Arts and Cinema International, a nonprofit media arts organization that aims to promote and develop Filipino cinema from the Philippines and the Filipino diaspora. It has organized the festival for the past 25 years.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A decade ago, Apple opened a store peddling iPhone apps, unlocking the creativity of software developers and letting users truly make their mobile devices their own. The resulting explosion of phone apps — there are now more than 2 million for the iPhone alone — has changed daily life for billions of people around the world. It has unleashed new ways for us to work and play — and to become so distracted that we sometimes forget to look up from our screens. It has created new industries — think ride-hailing services like Uber, which would be unimaginable without mobile apps — and pumped up demand for software developers and coding schools.

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

           Augur Launches Decentralized Prediction Marketplace      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Augur Launches Decentralized Prediction Marketplace

Augur, a blockchain-based predictions platform, has opened to the general public. The platform becomes the “world’s first” decentralized prediction-market platform.

Augur was created by the Forecast Foundation, a not-for-profit corporation whose goal is to build “open-source, public forecasting tools.”

Prediction markets — which are a general type of financial market — have long been dominated by the likes of Paddy Power and DraftKings, which are centrally owned, operated and regulated.  

This centralization causes all kinds of problems, such as restrictions for users in certain regions, higher associated costs to use and limitations on the types of markets that users could create.

A key differentiator for Augur is its global and decentralized nature.

With the launch of the platform, anyone, anywhere, can launch their own events and bet on them. This also allows the platform to create a higher level of liquidity and volume, as well as a diversity of topics not typically covered by traditional prediction markets.

Beyond trading, Augur also solves a key problem by moving “real world information” onto Ethereum’s blockchain in a secure manner where results can’t be altered.

Vitalik Buterin, founder of Ethereum and advisor to the Forecast Foundation, while commenting on the launch of Augur’s decentralized platform said, “I have been excited about the possibility of prediction markets on Ethereum for a long time, and I’m pleased to see Augur being a leader in releasing such a sophisticated system into the wild.”

Furthermore, the platform ensures that events in the markets are accurately reported on. It does this by incentivizing users to report and correct “markets that have been incorrectly reported on” in exchange for “fees from the market” and a chance to earn more Reputation (REP) tokens — which is the cryptocurrency associated with Augur.

Tom Kysar, head of operations at the Forecast Foundation, said, “Today’s launch of Augur represents three years of relentless work to realize the goal of creating the first — and best — decentralized oracle and prediction-market platform.”

Augur raised about $5 million in its initial coin offering (ICO), and its REP token, which launched in October of 2016, now has a $384.1 million market capitalization.

Don’t miss the Fireside Chat at Distributed 2018 in San Francisco on Friday, July 20, when Augur co-founders Joey Krug and Jeremy Gardner will discuss Augur’s journey, as well as the importance of prediction markets. Register here.

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

JUUL In Hand Female Black Tank Small


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

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

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

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

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

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

Teen Juuling presents an ethical dilemma

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

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

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

The FDA could start regulating Juuls and other vapes

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

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

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

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

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

Local governments could push for more limits on e-cigs

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

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

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

AirTalk®

President Trump has nominated Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court to fill the vacancy left by retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy.

          Una escuela diseñada por un maestro espiritual      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Pues a lo mismo a lo que vinimos a esta vida. A desarrollar la conciencia. Escribe Swami Sivananda de Rishikesh, en su libro Bliss Divine, escrito hace más de 80 años, que la educación es el desarrollo de todo el ser humano: intelecto, corazón y cuerpo. Y que el fin último de la educación es despertar la divinidad inherente de cada persona. 

Educación es preparación para la vida y el propósito de la vida es la evolución de la conciencia, el auto perfeccionamiento y el desarrollo espiritual. Habitar este cuerpo y esta tierra, venir acá, para aprender las lecciones necesarias, sanar los núcleos familiares, corregir nuestros defectos, ejercer nuestros dones y misiones, ayudar a otros, transformar nuestros patrones negativos, disolver nuestros karmas y nudos, y expresar nuestro máximo potencial, intelectual y de conciencia. 

Las dimensiones que Swami Sivananda propone para trabajar en las escuelas son las siguientes:  

  • Desarrollo ético y moral, con el ejemplo de los profesores, como la base de la escuela
  • Desarrollo del intelecto: enseñar a pensar, desde lo artístico, lo científico y lo práctico, de una manera no fragmentaria.  
  • Desarrollo del carácter: ayudar a forjar un carácter firme, puro y bondadoso.  
  • Desarrollo del cuerpo y de la salud, a través del juego, el ejercicio, el deporte y el yoga. 5-Desarrollo de aspectos prácticos: para poder conseguir un trabajo, ganarse la vida y desenvolverse en el mundo, como complemento al desarrollo intelectual.  
  • Desarrollo espiritual, que sería lo más importante.  

Lo espiritual debe ser la base de la escuela, como valor último y propósito de la vida. Con un enfoque teórico y práctico. Sivananda sugiere empezar los días con silencio, con meditación, con oración, con canto, con música, con gratitud, con autorreflexión.

Así mismo, realizar estudios sobre las diversas escrituras sagradas y las enseñanzas espirituales universales, y de la vida de sabios, santos y seres inspiradores para aprender de sus virtudes (pensemos por ejemplo en Gandhi, o en Mandela o en grandes artistas y científicos). 

El profesor debe ser un guía amoroso, nunca un “patrón”. Es deber del profesor ganarse el respeto y el afecto de sus estudiantes (y no miedo u odio), con su calidez, rigor y conocimiento. El sólo progreso intelectual no hace grande al profesor. Su pureza de corazón y su bondad son necesarias. Los profesores deben llevar una vida espiritual rica. Deben meditar, deben explorar el autoconocimiento, deben trabajar en sí mismos, en su sanación, en el desarrollo de su conciencia. Así los estudiantes podrán encontrar inspiración en las vidas de sus profesores. Los profesores deben ser conscientes que su dedicación es esencial para formar a los futuros ciudadanos. Su labor es única y muy poderosa. 

Nos mueve el dinero, el éxito material, la fama y los títulos. Por ello, el ser interno debe ser educado para que pueda prestarse un servicio a sí mismo, realizarse, ayudar a los otros y a la sociedad. Por su parte, las escuelas no pueden ser negocios porque el criterio último es la ganancia y no la evolución de la raza humana. 

Sería maravilloso que los ejes curriculares de nuestras instituciones educativas fueran las dimensiones del desarrollo humano, como las mencionadas arriba, y no las áreas del conocimiento, fragmentadas. Que niños y profesores fuéramos a los colegios a desarrollar esas dimensiones y a evolucionar en conciencia, a aprender a vivir y a aprender a pensar. Que nos sacaramos de la cabeza tanta tara con las pruebas estandarizadas, la productividad y los indicadores macroeconómicos porque, como dicen sabios y maestros, el propósito con que habitamos esta tierra es mucho mayor. Y eso no se nos enseña en las escuelas. 

Swami Sivananda de Rishikesh es considerado uno de los maestros espirituales más importantes del siglo pasado. En India es considerado como un San Francisco de Asís del siglo XX. Publicó más de 300 libros y dedicó su vida al servicio de los pobres, a la medicina y a la difusión de la enseñanza espiritual. En Colombia es conocido pues fue maestro de Swami Satyananda, quien visitó Colombia y fundó la Academia Satyananda hace más de 40 años, una escuela de conciencia y de yoga muy seria. Recomiendo su libro Bliss Divine, en el que habla, entre otros, sobre educación.

It stopped prosecuting quality-of-life offenses and, unsurprisingly, the quality of life for the city’s residents and visitors decreased sharply. In 2015, San Francisco courts stopped enforcing bench warrants for such offenses.

The filing met a statute of limitations deadline and will be heard by an independent arbitrator, an NFLPA spokesman said.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    NFL Players Union Files Grievance Over Kneeling Mandate On Tuesday, the NFL Players Association filed a grievance against the league, arguing that the kneeling policy infringes on players’ rights. NFLPA, via Twitter The new policy was mandated in May, and called for players to “ stand and show respect for the flag and the Anthem.” If not, they are to retreat to the locker rooms, and wait until the anthem is over. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, via CNN The kneeling protests were started in 2016 by former San Francisco 49ers player Colin Kaepernick and went on to become a hot topic in political and cultural debates across the country.

              Pop-up restaurant dinners come to Lodi wine country!      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Pop-up dinner at R&G Family Farms' Bing cherry orchard

    “Welcome to our family’s first ‘Evening In the Orchard!’” exclaimed Drew Rotner, co-owner of R&G Family Farms, to a table of 24 Lodi wine and food lovers set in the shade of 29-year-old Bing cherry trees.

    For the event, the Rotner and Gotelli families collaborated with three extraordinarily talented chefs with Lodi backgrounds, now working as independent contractors in the modern day tradition known as “pop-up restaurants.” Pop-ups are more like restaurants with no walls: Chefs put together gourmet meals, usually very adventurous multi-course affairs, and invite “friends” to sit down and enjoy. For a set fee, of course. It can take place in the rented space of a warehouse, an old Victorian, a penthouse or professional catering kitchen; or maybe in someone’s backyard, the middle of a desert or top of a remote, forested hill. Or in this case, this past Saturday (July 7, 2018), the pop-up happened in the middle of a Lodi Bing cherry orchard planted in 1989 by Gotelli family.

    R&G Family Farms' Drew Rotner (right) greeting guests with Chefs (from left) Dawnell O'Brien, Danica Aviles and John Hitchcock; plus Pati Waggoner-Myers (second from right) of Bella Festa

    One of the three chefs, Dawnelle O’Brien, acts as sort of a spokesperson for this particular group. Ms. O’Brien is the former Pastry chef at Wine & Roses Hotel’s Towne House Restaurant in Lodi, where she worked with her other two pop-up partners-in-crime, so to speak: John Hitchcock (former Executive Chef of Towne House Restaurant) and Danica Aviles (former Town House Restaurant Chef de Cuisine).

    At one time, very recently, all three chefs were working under the guidance of Wine & Roses Hotel’s legendary, James Beard Award winning Culinary Director, Bradley Ogden. But today, all three are pursuing separate independent careers: O’Brien as the owner of her own, Stockton-based cake company, D’z Desserts; Aviles as co-proprietor of the San Francisco-based pop-up restaurant called Pinoy Heritage (specializing in contemporary, Filipino-inspired cuisine); and Hitchcock, who now labors as what he calls a “machinist” for his family’s Lodi-based hydraulic company (although Chef Hitchcock primarily spends his time at a computer, designing equipment with 3-D CAD software).

    Guests enjoying pop-up dinner reception with imaginative hor d'ouevres and summer fruit sangria

    “When we get together,” says O’Brien, “we call ourselves a ‘trifecta,’ or ‘three amigos.’” You might also think of them as like Crosby, Stills & Nash getting together; because, set free from the four walls of Wine & Roses Hotel’s lavish Town House Restaurant, these three chefs are now soaring with dishes singing with culinary imagination like never seen before in Lodi wine country, as evidenced by their pop-up dinner menu in the Gotelli orchard. And believe you us, these dishes looked and tasted even better, and fresher, than they sound on paper:

    Stone Fruit, Arugula, Chèvre, and Pickled Red Onion in Vanilla Bean Vinaigrette

    Heirloom Tomato and Burrata in Calivirgin EVVO and Aged Balsamic

    Duo of Fresh Summer Beans

    Thyme Confit Marble Potatoes

    Brentwood Corn Salad, Medley of Peppers and Heirloom Cherry Tomatoes

    Fresh Ratatouille

    Roasted Skuna Bay Salmon and Chimichurri

    Mary’s Airline Chicken and Lemon Jus

    36-Hour Sous-Vide Short Ribs in Pinot Noir Jus

    Lemon Posset with Macerated Fruit (R&G Family Peach, Blueberry and Blackberry)

    Micro-sized Hawaiian loco moco reception appetizers

    Pictures tell thousands of words, and so we’ll let our images do the talking, and unleash your imagination.

    While the pop-up “Evening In the Orchard” took place on the bare, fluffy, sandy dirt between Bing cherry trees that, less than two weeks ago, gave up the last of Lodi’s 2018 harvest, you can clearly see that the table setting was befitting the most lavish multi-star-restaurant. That is because the chefs and Rotner/Gotelli families also enlisted another well known Lodi talent, Pati Waggoner-Myers: Director of Operations for the Bella Festa party planning company, and who has also coordinated countless weddings at Wine & Roses Hotel.

    D'z Desserts Chef Dawnelle O'Brien with her shrimp summer folls with peanut dipping sauce

    Assisting the chefs, and responsible for the stunning flower arrangements on the pop-up dinner table, was Lorraine Hitchcock: the former Culinary Education Coordinator of Wine & Roses Hotel (who also happens to be Chef Hitchcock’s mother and, of course, lifetime head cheerleader).

    As if the 10-course menu wasn’t enough, the 24 paying guests were also treated to an apéritif of fresh white peach sangria (heaven-sent at the end of another warm, sleepy, dusty Delta day); served with a bewildering array of hors d’oeuvres that included Fried Oyster Gribiche, Fresh Tomato Water Paté de Fruit with Spiced Cherry Preserve, Shrimp Summer Rolls with Peanut Dip, and the tiniest version of the Hawaiian dish called Loco Moco (ground beef layered with a quail’s egg, rice and a smidgen of pan gravy) ever assembled.

    Uvaggio Cinsault Rosé from Lodi's historic Bechthold Vineyard

    Once seated at the table at 7:00 PM, all the guests uncorked their own bottles of wine (BYOW is typically part of pop-up restaurant dining), which were readily shared with newfound table partners. Our own contribution to the communal table:

     A soulful, bone dry and meaty textured 2016 Uvaggio Bechthold Vineyard Lodi Cinsault Rosé (crafted from Lodi’s oldest vines, planted in 1886)

     A crisp, perfumey, silken fine 2017 Oak Farm Mohr-Fry Ranches Lodi Sauvignon Blanc

     An ultra-spiced, nostril-tingling, layered, lithe and lingering 2016 Turley Steacy Ranch Lodi Zinfandel (from an ancient vine planting dating back to 1907)

    Gotelli Farms' Missy Gotelli (center) with Drew Rotner and her daughter Ashley Rotner

    When greeting the adventurous diners at the table, Mr. Rotner – standing alongside the chefs and his wife, Ashley Rotner (of the Gotelli family) – told the visitors to his family's farm: “When we first started talking to the chefs about a pop-up, we said how cool would it be to do it on long table set in the middle of the orchard. This would be taking farming-to-fork to the next level. This is our first pop-up, but we definitely something plan to do more in the future.”

    Mr. Rotner acknowledged his in-laws, Tom and Missy Gotelli, also seated for the dinner in the orchard. “Ashley’s grandparents established their farm in the 1920s, and together we started up R&G Family Farms three years ago, selling primarily to local restaurants, which is how I got to know this motley crew of chefs.”

    Relaxing in the shade of R&G Family Farms Bing cherry trees

    Rotner, as it were, understates the impact of his increasingly significant role in the Lodi region’s blossoming culinary culture. He is already known for his willingness to pack up boxes of fresh picked pomegranate, or cherry, pumpkin, peach, blackberry, blueberry or walnut and deliver to a local restaurant in the middle of an evening shift, if a kitchen happens to run out of anything. And these include a good number of San Joaquin Valley’s finest restaurants: besides Towne House Restaurant, also Downtown Lodi’s Rosewood Bar & Grill (where Rotner once tended bar) and Fenix, Pietro’s Trattoria, and Market Tavern in Stockton.

    Longtime Lodi Certified Farmers Market patrons are also long familiar with the family that Mr. Rotner married into: Missy Gotelli and her two daughters, Ashley and Shelby, qualify as School Street institutions; offering tastes of their Lodi grown cherries to everyone and anyone ever since the girls were 4-year-olds (the two, irresistibly cute, cherry-hawking “kids” are now grown up, with husbands).

    Pinoy Heritage Chef Danica Aviles

    If you are interested in keeping track of future R&G Family farm-to-fork events, you may inquire with Drew and Ashley Rotner at rgfamilyfarms@gmail.com.

    As for the three-amigo chefs, the best way to keep tabs on future pop-up dinners (their trifecta dinner in the orchard was just their second collaborative event) may be through the Facebook page of Chef O’Brien’s D’z Desserts, where you can contact her directly.

              Realizan “marcha-carreteo” para concientizar choferes utilizan carretera San Francisco de Macorís-Nagua      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    SAN FRANCISCO DE MACORÍS, Duarte. La Federación de Trabajadores de Transporte del Cibao (Fesitrapu) realizó este martes una “marcha-carreteo” con el objetivo de concientizar a los choferes para reducir la cantidad de accidentes de tránsito en la carretera San Francisco de Macorís-Nagua.

    La manifestación se inició en la avenida Manolo Tavárez Justo y culminó en la parte frontal del edificio gubernamental de aquí.

    Los organizadores indicaron que buscan educar a sus colegas para que utilicen y exhorten a sus pasajeros colocarse el cinturón de seguridad, así como evitar el uso de teléfonos móviles al momento de estar en el volante.

    Recordaron que en el referido tramo carretero se producen constantemente accidentes de tránsito, muchos de ellos con saldos lamentables.

    Por otro lado, los dirigentes choferiles deploraron los aumentos en los precios de los combustibles que se han ejecuta en los últimos meses.

    El presidente de Fesitrapu, Cristino Rodríguez (Villa), declaró que el Gobierno está llevando a la desesperación al sector transporte.

    “Las autoridades no nos está dejando otro camino que aumentar el pasaje, algo que nosotros no queremos”, indicó Rodríguez.

    Agentes de la Dirección General de Seguridad de Tránsito y Transporte Terrestre (Digesett) franquearon todo el recorrido.


              How Silicon Valley Created a Modern Caste System      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Although Silicon Valley has changed the world through its proliferation of tech companies, it has also created a bunch of problems, says Antonio Martínez from Wired. He says that Silicon Valley has created a modern caste system.

    But it is the vision of the future that San Francisco offers: highly stratified, with little social mobility. It’s feudalism with better marketing. Today’s “sharing” economy resembles the “sharecropping” of yesteryear, with the serfs responding to a smartphone prompt rather than an overseer’s command…Inequality rarely decreases, and when it does it’s often as the result of wars, revolutions, pandemics, or state collapse.

              One year at this agency made me happy to give up design forever      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    My first year at Ueno.

    When I graduated from art school it was my dream to live in San Francisco and work at a design agency. Ten years later and I’ve finally realized that dream—sort of. I live in the East Bay, not SF, and I work at a “full service” agency (you might have heard of it), which does design and so much more.

    And, as you may have guessed from the title, I’m not a designer anymore.

    Ten+ years trying to make it as a designer

    Starting in 2005, I spent summers as an intern in my family’s advertising business and created our very first digital ads. In 2008, I landed a full-time design job at a small print shop and took on development work too.¹ In 2010, I worked from someone else’s dining room and helped build a new e-commerce business from scratch. In 2011, I had a client who cared about quantity over quality, so I wrote template-driven sites to deliver better layouts in less time.

    In 2013, I strove to provide meaningful designs, despite having no direct client contact. I experienced loss, both personally and professionally. I moved to SF, and slept on a friend’s couch for six months. In 2014, I was unemployed for too long, but used that time to volunteer within the design community. By 2016, I had stagnated at a startup, where I spent two years engulfed in flames, as the only web designer.

    I was being challenged in all the wrong ways

    I realized I was no longer growing my skills. At the end of 2016, I pulled the “if you can’t do, teach” move, which allowed me the flexibility to travel the world. I tried to appreciate what I had, even if it wasn’t what I had once envisioned.

    I still wanted a taste of life at a big agency. I imagined creating work that I was proud of and serving clients with household names. I dreamt of work that was always new, interesting, and challenging. I longed to work alongside people who were better designers than me, whom I could respect and learn from. I wished for the energy that replaces frustration when a problem is important and exciting. I fantasized about doing something I loved and still making enough money to feel comfortable buying new socks when my old ones formed holes.

    I wanted to do something I loved

    I applied to 155 jobs in seven months. I know this because I kept a spreadsheet to ensure I didn’t apply for the same role more than once. I calculated the percentage of interest I received from my applications to keep myself from getting discouraged when a new “Thank you for your interest…” rejection letter hit my inbox. I got ghosted by someone I had hoped would be a great mentor. I worked with recruiters…bless their hearts.

    I felt dread where I used to feel passion

    I applied for Product Design and UX jobs that I felt unqualified for. I made a fool out of myself in interviews because I was embarrassed by my work and couldn’t articulate the value in my experience. I thought about switching careers and becoming a sign fabricator or a project manager.

    To keep myself going, I got back into volunteering, no longer too busy with work. I organized a bar crawl and built an app for it, giving myself an excuse to learn React. I attended events I hadn’t previously had time for.

    Then Ueno reached out to me

    Someone at Ueno had come across my information via a JavaScript event I had registered for. They were interested in me for a developer role. Even though I had always had “designer” in my title, I had been coding my entire career. The idea of being a developer at an agency, where I would be surrounded by wonderful designers, thrilled me.

    I was sent a coding challenge, which was right up my alley: to recreate a Photoshop document in code. I used it as a playground to try out CSS grid. “The team […] gave a big thumbs up!” and I got an interview—the best one I’d had in a long time.

    I felt confident, I felt relevant.

    I got the job

    My first assignments were bug fixes and additions to existing, internal projects. I got my feet wet on these smaller tasks, gaining familiarity with the Ueno tech stack and programming style. I was given far more time to get comfortable than I was comfortable with. I was sure I would be fired because there was so much I didn’t know.

    But after ten years of teaching myself development, I knew how to figure it out. I wasn’t fired and I found working at an agency to be everything I’d imagined.

    In the last year, I’ve contributed to at least eleven client projects—including some big names, as well as brand new ones. I am proud of my work on every one. Each assignment has expanded my knowledge of a language, framework, or library. The seven internal projects I’ve touched have served as a particularly valuable space for me to take on technologies I thought were beyond my capabilities. Each person I’ve worked with has inspired and supported me. I have endured Gene Ross’s relentless puns, while managing to avoid being on the receiving end of Jenny Johannesson’s eyebrow. I’ve wrestled with challenges, gotten stuck, and been frustrated, but I still look forward to coming to work everyday, because there is nothing like the rush of solving a new problem. I love what I do, and can now comfortably buy new socks when I need them, but I still think $12 for a single pair is a bit much.

    GitHub contribution graph for the previous year showing 1,143 contributions#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

    At Ueno, developer-life is about more than Github contributions

    I proofread (almost) every one of Ueno’s newsletters and blog posts. I added 10 custom emoji to our Slack — half of which are food items. I can now tell you what M means in an SVG file—it’s not the same as m. I ate more açaí bowls than I can count. I submitted pull requests for typos in the documentation for libraries I was learning. I played hours of Rocket League and didn’t improve at all. I accidentally wrote copy for a billboard. I sang karaoke in Iceland. I saw my coworkers, Carolyn, Elliott, Karli, Kyle, Liz, Najla, and Robbin, earn new titles. I learned to appreciate the subtle texture that confetti adds to my lunches. I served as on-camera talent. I was happily reimbursed for my time with cheeseburgers.² I became a member of the FWA jury. I joined my first book club.³ I QA’d websites and apps. I felt brand new, and I felt my opinions were valued.

    In some ways, I feel just as much like a designer as I always have

    I have always taken on more than my title implied, because it all was design to me. The process of translating a design into a real working website or app is chock full of decisions, large and small, that I consider design decisions. My end-users may be a lot different, but they aren’t any less important. They are the other developers at Ueno who work alongside me and our clients’ engineers who will expand on my work in the future. They are the servers which deliver the code and the browsers that render the final product.

    I continue to design — in my own way

    In my next year at Ueno, I will employ new frameworks (React Native) and take on new tasks (help plan the first Ueno conference). I will seek discomfort and keep learning, but I probably won’t get better at Rocket League. I will write more code and the occasional blog post.

    I will be so thrilled to never source another stock photo. I will feel no nostalgia for the process of finding the right typeface. And I will not miss having “designer” in my title.

    [1] I couldn’t stand that my designs were being built by someone who used table-based layout in 2008, so I developed them myself.
    [2] I owe cheeseburgers to Carolyn, Tom, Shannon, Halli, and Amy for proofreading this for me. Thank you.

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

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

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

    It’s called GoLocal Suites.

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

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

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

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

    And they are ready for your test drive.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    “We’ve lost 6 million jobs by sending items and jobs to China that, by the way, we are perfectly capable of making here,” he added. “There is a market demand for these items and domestic competition here will drive the prices down for everybody. There are plenty of people in the heartland and throughout the country that can start manufacturing these items with the right attention and the right demand. And there is definitely a demand.”

    Flynn is not a novice in the corporate and vacation rental world. His company has grown steadily since its inception in 2012, and landed on the Inc. 5000 list in 2016 with a 557.13 percent growth. Northeast Suites came right back last year with an 82 percent growth. Flynn has 20 employees and the company brought in a gross revenue of $12 million in 2017.

    Other than Flynn’s current properties, he is pitching his GoLocal system to Airbnb hosts, hotel brands and corporate housing providers.

    “I am on my own here and don’t have any investors,” Flynn said. “But I have plenty of evidence of proof of concept. My ultimate goal is to get the right partner to blow this up in a bigger way. I want to expand the GoLocal concept to all of my properties. I hate that I haven’t been able to do that yet. I want to eventually furnish thousands of these apartments with Made in America items.”

              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

    Drugs can be bad. But data? That's some good shit.

    The most ingenious of consumers, the illicit substance user, has finally found what they claim to be a practical (albeit potentially dangerous) use for Fitbit health trackers — and it's just as sketchy as you might expect. 

    Apparently, people are doing lots of cocaine and then checking their fitness tracker to make sure their heart isn't about to explode.

    So reports CNBC, which spoke with one San Francisco tech worker about the trend. 

    "If someone says, 'Let's do a line,' I'll look at my watch," the 20-something explained. "If I see I'm at 150 or 160, I'll say, 'I'm good.' That's totally fine. Nobody gives you a hard time." Read more...

              Lick up this Winona Ryder Movie Marathon at Alamo Drafthouse       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Being a fan of a movie star can be a tricky thing. Everyone’s career has to start somewhere, and sometimes they make a movie for non-artistic reasons — unless you’re Winona Ryder, in which case a Winona Ryder movie marathon is pretty much just a guaranteed good time.

    Breaking out at age 17, Ryder’s third-ever film credit was the iconic role of the spiritual goth Lydia in Beetlejuice. Since then, she’s made being the odd girl look cool with every performance, from a high school clique leader whose conscience catches up to her in Heathers to the only girl in suburbia not afraid of Edward Scissorhands, and the moody but brainy sister among the Little Women. For a generation of kids, if Winona Ryder could make it, there was hope for the rest of us.

    All of which is to say, it’s safe to assume Alamo Drafthouse’s Winona Forever: A Winona Ryder Mystery Marathon will be a good time no matter what they choose.

    Taking place Saturday, Aug. 25 starting at noon, Alamo Drafthouse Downtown Brooklyn will hold “a day of worship,” in their words, screening four of Ryder’s most iconic movies that won’t be revealed until each film begins. (If you absolutely must know and don't mind risking tickets being sold out, additional screenings of Winona Forever are set for San Francisco on Aug. 5 and Austin on Aug. 19.) Will it be 20s angst with Reality Bites? Trippy times in the psych ward in Girl Interrupted? Or the artful horrors of Black Swan?

    Whatever the movies, it’s not a Winona Ryder movie marathon without sharing a few of our own stories of obsession, so come prepared with your best on-brand ‘90s kid material. There will be themed drink specials and other surprises — think of it like a daytime sleepover where everyone is just as obsessed as you.

    And note, Alamo Drafthouse, if there isn’t a dance break for The Banana Boat Song, you’re not invited to our next birthday party. Because really, “What is your damage, Heather?”

              Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City by Gordon Young      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Now Available for Pre-Order on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Waterstones in Great Britain, and Indigo.

    Praise for Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City by Gordon Young

    "One can read Teardown and go 'My, my, my! What a horrid town! Thank God I don't live there!' Oh, but you do. Just as the 'Roger & Me Flint' of the 1980s was the precursor to a wave of downsizing that eventually hit every American community, Gordon Young's Flint of 2013, as so profoundly depicted in this book, is your latest warning of what's in store for you — all of you, no matter where you live — in the next decade. The only difference between your town and Flint is that the Grim Reaper just likes to visit us first. It's all here in Teardown, a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once great American city."
    — Michael Moore 

    "There must be a thousand good reasons to flee Flint. I can't assume there are many reasons to return. Gordon Young's Teardown supplies a few of these answers. A humorous, heartfelt and often haunting tale of a town not many could love. Fortunately for us, a few still do."
    Ben Hamper, author of Rivethead: Tales From the Assembly Line

    Teardown is the tragic and somehow hilarious tale of one man's attempt to return to his hometown of Flint, Michigan. Gordon Young is a Flintoid at heart, and his candid observations about both the shrinking city and his own economic woes read heartbreakingly true.”
    — Novella Carpenter, author of Farm City: The Education of an Urban Farmer

    “Armed with an aluminum baseball bat and a truth-seeking pen, Gordon Young returns to the post-industrial wasteland of his hometown — Vehicle City, aka Flint, Michigan — in search of a derelict house to buy and restore. At least that's his cover story. Young's true mission is to reclaim his past in order to make sense of his present. If you're bewitched by the place where you grew up, you'll find comfort and a sense of home in the pages of Teardown.
    — Jack Shafer, Reuters columnist and a former Michigander

    “Like so many other Flintites, I visit my hometown with a mix of sadness, repugnance, and anger. Flint is too easy to criticize, but I look back in gratitude for the values Flint instilled and the bonds I made that remain with me to this day. You can take the boy out ofFlint, but you can’t take Flint out of the boy.”
    Howard Bragman, author of Where’s My Fifteen Minutes?

    Teardown is a funny and ultimately heartbreaking memoir. The travails of house hunting are skillfully interwoven with Gordon Young’s attempt to reconcile life in his adopted city of San Francisco with his allegiance to Flint, Michigan, the troubled city of his childhood. The result is an all too contemporary American story of loyalty, loss, and finding your way home.”
    — Tom Pohrt, artist and author of Careless Rambles by John Clare, Having a Wonderful Time, and Coyote Goes Walking.

    Murder In Celluloid (Aired July 2, 1946)
    The Casebook of Gregory Hood, starring Gale Gordon in the title role, took over where Sherlock Holmes had left off. Sponsored by Petri wine, it used the same "weekly visit" format and the same team of Anthony Boucher and Dennis Green that had written The New Adventured of Sherlock Holmes. Gregory Hood was modelled after true-life San Francisco importer Richard Gump, and many of the stories revolve around a mystery surrounding some particular imported treasure. Hood's sidekick Sanderson "Sandy" Taylor was played by Bill Johnstone. The show aired from June, 1946 through August, 1950. There were an additional couple of shows aired in October 1951. Hood and Sanderson were played in later episodes by Elliott Lewis and Howard McNear, respectively. THIS EPISODE: July 2, 1946. Mutual network. "Murder In Celluloid". Sponsored by: Petri Wines. A movie actress is found strangled in her dressing room. What is the connection to the map drawn by a child actress on the same movie? Sheila Graham appears as a diner in a restaurant (and plugs her new series on Mutual). Gale Gordon, Harry Bartell (announcer), Dean Fosler (composer, conducto), Denis Green (writer), Anthony Boucher (writer). 28:40. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

    Drugs can be bad. But data? That's some good shit.

    The most ingenious of consumers, the illicit substance user, has finally found what they claim to be a practical (albeit potentially dangerous) use for Fitbit health trackers — and it's just as sketchy as you might expect. 

    Apparently, people are doing lots of cocaine and then checking their fitness tracker to make sure their heart isn't about to explode.

    So reports CNBC, which spoke with one San Francisco tech worker about the trend. 

    "If someone says, 'Let's do a line,' I'll look at my watch," the 20-something explained. "If I see I'm at 150 or 160, I'll say, 'I'm good.' That's totally fine. Nobody gives you a hard time." Read more...

    Wir sind ein älteres Paar in den 70ern und sind rundum begeistert von unserer Rundreise per Mietwagen durch den Goldenen (Süd)Westen der USA. Die vorgeschlagene Route (von L.A. nach Osten bis Monument Valley und in einem nördlichen Bogen via Nationalparks nach San Francisco und dann die Pazifikküste entlang zurück nach L.A.), der Flug mit AF Premium Economy, der geräumige komfortable SUV-Mietwagen, die Unterkünfte (meistens B&B) und die Tipps entsprachen unseren Vorstellungen in jeder Beziehung. Die Reiseplanung sowie die hervorragende Dokumentation waren erstklassig – wirklich alles klappte auf Anhieb.
    Da wir als Senioren eine 'entschleunigte' Reise vorzogen, schätzten wir sehr, dass wir jeweils für zwei Übernachtungen am selben Ort bleiben konnten, um uns zu erholen und die Sehenswürdigkeiten vor Ort zu geniessen. Die USA sind tatsächlich das Reiseland par excellence und die nötigen Infrastrukturen, gerade auch für Senioren, stehen überall zur Verfügung und erleichtern die Reise enorm. Trotz der doch recht langen Reisedauer von 3 1/2 Wochen blieben wir sowohl physisch als auch moralisch bis zum Schluss fit!
    Als Tipps für Zion National Park und für Yosemite National Park: Da es sich bei beiden Parks effektiv um Canyons (d.h. hier weite Schluchten) handelt, sind kurze (45 Min.) bis mitttellange (90 Min.) Wanderungen angesagt, um die Schönheiten von Nahem zu entdecken. Wer dazu nicht in Lage ist, beschränkt sich besser auf eine Tal-Rundfahrt per Mietauto oder (übervollen) Gratis-Shuttle-Bus und fährt dann selbst zu den Canyon-Rändern wie z.B. Glacier Point in Yosemite (unbedingt empfehlenswert!) oder sogar bis zum Tioga Pass. Das erspart menschenverursachten Stress und bringt oft mehr. Und noch ein Tipp: Wer San Francisco besucht, muss unbedingt warme Kleidung mitnehmen – wer's nicht glaubt, friert sogar im Hochsommer! Die Golden Gate Bridge verschwand im kühlen Nebel, als wir selbst darüberfuhren ... wir meinten zu fliegen, da es weder unten noch oben gab!
    Fazit: Wer das Gefühl der grandiosen Weite erfahren will, ist mit dieser oder einer ähnlichen Route bestens bedient und erlebt die verschiedensten Aspekte der amerikanischen Grosszügigkeit. Umfulana bringt's!

              Trump Taps Brett Kavanaugh for Supreme Court      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    President Trump on Monday named “judge’s judge” Brett Kavanaugh for a seat on the U.S. Supreme Court. The president sought a nominee of “impeccable credentials” who would “do what the law requires” and “apply the Constitution as written.” He found such a person in Kavanaugh, 53, who has served on the D.C. Circuit court of appeals since 2006. The conservative Yale Law alum clerked for the associate Justice Anthony Kennedy, who stepped down just 12 days ago. 

    Democrats see the Supreme Court as a robed politburo that will give them what they can’t win through the electoral process. Democrats appear to believe they own the court and even before President Trump’s announcement they were gearing up for the fight. 

    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, who doesn’t have a vote on the nominee, said she is “determined to avenge President Obama if it’s the last thing I do.” Other Democrats, led by Charles Schumer, said they would oppose any Trump pick for the high court. The battle to confirm Kavanaugh is certain to be fierce, so all age groups might review the Democrats’ grand inquisitors of the past. 

    Ohio Democrat Howard Metzenbaum, a veteran of the Communist Party fronts such as the National Lawyers Guild, took the lead against black conservative Clarence Thomas in 1991. Metzenbaum thought he was intellectually superior to the Bush nominee, but Thomas, a Yale man like Kavanaugh, made him look a fool. It was likely Metzenbaum who leaked Anita Hill’s fake story, and the leftist Democrat pushed hard on the sexual harassment allegations. 

    When black businessman John Doggett testified in favor of Thomas, Metzenbaum charged that Doggett was also guilty of sexual harassment. White liberal Joe Biden also attacked on that front. 

    “From my standpoint as a black American,” Thomas said, “as far as I’m concerned, it is a high-tech lynching for uppity blacks who in any way deign to think for themselves, to do for themselves, to have different ideas, and it is a message that unless you kowtow to an old order, this is what will happen to you. You will be lynched, destroyed, caricatured by a committee of the U.S. Senate, rather than hung from a tree.”

    Thomas’ “high-tech lynching” charge enraged West Virginia Democrat Robert Byrd, a former Ku Klucker who also voted against Thurgood Marshall, the first black Supreme Court Justice. Byrd voted against Thomas and so did Sen. Ted Kennedy who in 1969 left Mary Jo Kopechne to die at Chappaquiddick. In 1984, Kennedy colluded with KGB boss Yuri Andropov to prevent the reelection of Ronald Reagan, who in 1987 nominated Robert Bork to the high court. 

    “Robert Bork’s America is a land in which women would be forced into back-alley abortions,” Sen. Ted Kennedy famously charged. “Blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters, rogue police could break down citizens’ doors in midnight raids, schoolchildren could not be taught about evolution, writers and artists would be censored at the whim of government, and the doors of the federal courts would be shut on the fingers of millions of citizens for whom the judiciary is often the only protector of the individual rights that are the heart of our democracy. America is a better and freer nation than Robert Bork thinks. Yet in the current delicate balance of the Supreme Court, his rigid ideology will tip the scales of justice against the kind of country America is and ought to be.” 

    And so on, with high-volume accompaniment from Norman Lear’s People for the American Way, which was anything but.  

    Metzenbaum and Kennedy are tough acts to follow but Democrats are up to the task. Their lead inquisitor will be Dianne Feinstein, 85, ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee. Long before Donny Deutsch charged that even Trump voters are Nazis the San Francisco Democrat, now 85, was the loudest voice for the leftist boilerplate that America is overflowing Nazis and that religious conservatives are Nazis. 

    In 1992 in rural Idaho, FBI sniper Lon Horiuchi shot Vicki Weaver through the head as she held her 10-month-old daughter. As husband Randy told the Senate in 1995, “She was not wanted for any crime. There were no warrants for her arrest.”

    Democrats Herb Kohl and Patrick Leahy showed sympathy but as the San Francisco Examiner reported, “Feinstein dealt sternly with Weaver, asking whether his children wore Nazi arm bands and shouted Nazi slogans at neighbors.” Feinstein sought to show that the family was a pack of Nazis, implying that the killing of Vicki Weaver might have been justified. 

    Last September, in a confirmation hearing involving Amy Coney Barrett and Joan Larsen, both on President Trump’s original list, Feinstein said the backdrop for the hearing was the “neo-Nazis and white supremacists” in Charlottesville. “These are ideologies that people across the world died in a war fighting to defeat Nazism,” and just in case anybody wondered, “there isn’t any good in Nazism.” 

    Feinstein recently compared immigration policies under President Trump to “Nazi Germany.” Under her lead, Democrats will doubtless deploy the Nazi smear in the confirmation hearing for Brett Kavanaugh, along with the usual fake accusations and sub-infantile non-arguments. In 2018, as in 1991 and 1987, bigotry, fakery and slander live loudly within them.

              Saiba quem é Brett Kavanaugh, indicado a vaga na Suprema Corte dos EUA      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Juiz indicado por Donald Trump deve assumir cadeira de Anthony Kennedy, que vai se aposentar. A nomeação não mudará a divisão ideológica do tribunal, que já tem maioria conservadora, mas pode incliná-lo para a direita. Donald Trump aplaude o juiz Brett Kavanaugh ao indicá-lo para vaga na Suprema Corte dos Estados Unidos. Kavanaugh foi à cerimônia acompanhado da mulher e das duas filhas Alex Brandon/AP O juiz indicado pelo presidente americano Donald Trump a uma vaga na Suprema Corte pode consolidar um viés conservador no tribunal. Caso o nome seja aprovado pelo Senado dos Estados Unidos, Brett Kavanaugh, de 53 anos, poderá mudar a posição da Corte em casos como aborto e casamento entre pessoas do mesmo sexo. Católico, Kavanaugh se formou na Universidade de Yale e ficou conhecido por manter uma interpretação originalista da legislação – ou seja, decide de acordo com o que está disposto "na letra da lei". Análise: Um juiz conveniente para Trump Trump indica novo juiz e reforça tendência conservadora na Suprema Corte americana Quando seu nome foi anunciado por Trump na Casa Branca, na noite desta segunda-feira (9), Kavanaugh entrou no Salão Leste acompanhado da mulher e das duas filhas, com quem vive em Maryland. Aos políticos presentes, ele se descreveu como "humilde" e "profundamente honrado pelo convite" ao fazer um breve discurso. "Minha filosofia jurídica é direta. Um juiz deve ser independente e deve interpretar as leis, não fazer as leis. Um juiz deve interpretar os estatutos tal como estão escritos. E um juiz deve interpretar a Constituição tal como está escrita, informado pela história, tradição e precedente." No anúncio do nome, Trump disse que seu escolhido é "considerado o juiz dos juízes, um verdadeiro líder entre seus pares". "Ele é um jurista brilhante, com um estilo de escrita claro e eficaz, universalmente considerado como uma das mentes jurídicas mais refinadas do nosso tempo." Kavanaugh vinha atuando como juiz em tribunais de apelações dos Estados Unidos, no Distrito de Columbia, desde 2006, sendo autor de mais de 300 opiniões, incluindo 11 que foram confirmadas pela Suprema Corte. Antes de se tornar juiz, ele trabalhou como advogado da Casa Branca para o presidente George W. Bush. Polêmicas O juiz irritou ambientalistas ao rejeitar regulações sobre emissão de gases estufa na época do governo Barack Obama no Distrito de Columbia, onde fica a capital Washington. Ele também se tornou célebre por ser contra a recontagem dos votos na Flórida nas eleições de 2000, quando George W. Bush venceu Al Gore na disputa presidencial. A votação se notabilizou justamente porque a vitória do republicano naquele estado, por uma pequena margem, garantiu que Bush governasse o país nos quatro anos seguintes. Kavanaugh também esteve à frente do relatório do pedido de impeachment de Bill Clinton, em 1998. Ele argumentava, à época, que o então presidente deveria ser afastado do cargo por ter mentido sobre o escândalo sexual com Monica Lewinsky. Mudanças na Corte Kavanaugh deve assumir a cadeira de Anthony Kennedy, que vai se aposentar. A indicação não mudará a divisão ideológica de um tribunal que já tem uma maioria conservadora de 5 a 4, mas pode incliná-lo para a direita. Em algumas ocasiões Kennedy se uniu a seus colegas liberais em decisões cruciais sobre questões sociais polarizadoras, como os direitos ao aborto e dos gays – uma prática que seu substituto pode não seguir. Kennedy foi indicado pelo republicano Ronald Reagan depois que o Senado recusou seu nome preferido, Robert Bork, numa batalha histórica. No tribunal liberal então liderado por William Brennan, era visto como um voto conservador. Na corte encabeçada por John Roberts, que emergiu da presidência George W. Bush, foi em diversos casos um voto pendular e decisivo. Desde 2010, Kennedy votou com a maioria em 92% dos casos, Em 2016, Kennedy votou com a maioria liberal pela derrubada de leis que procuravam restringir o direito ao aborto no Texas. Neste ano, reviu sua posição tradicional contra políticas de ação afirmativa num caso envolvendo a Universidade do Texas. Mas apoiou o veto do governo Trump à entrada no país de viajantes de países específicos (quase todos de maioria muçulmana) e o direito de confeiteiros não fornecerem o bolo de casamento a um casal homossexual. Veja quem são os atuais juízes da Suprema Corte americana: Primeira fila, da esquerda para a direita: Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Anthony Kennedy, John Roberts., Clarence Thomas e Stephen Breyer. Na fila de trás: Elena Kagan, Samuel Alito, Sonia Sotomayor e Neil Gorsuch Suprema Corte dos EUA John Roberts No tribunal desde setembro de 2005, Roberts nasceu em Nova York e foi criado em Indiana, Frequentou um internato na adolescência, mas também passou verões trabalhando em uma siderúrgica. Depois de cogitar se tornar um historiador em Harvard, foi para a faculdade de direito e passou a trabalhar para um juiz. Passou muitos anos como advogado no governo Reagan e depois trabalhou num escritório privado, servindo como um dos vários conselheiros legais de George W. Bush no caso da recontagem presidencial da Flórida. Conservador, Roberts é o terceiro mais novo presidente da Suprema Corte, confirmado aos 50 anos de idade. O mandato do ano passado viu mais da metade de seus casos decididos por unanimidade, algo que muitos observadores da corte citam como o resultado do desejo de Roberts de promover acordos entre os magistrados através de decisões mais restritas. Ele também relatou, de maneira notável, a votação de 5 a 4 que derrubou um grande desafio à lei de saúde do presidente Barack Obama, o Obamacare. Ele dá sinais de não querer grandes oscilações, exceto em áreas que ele sente muito fortemente, como o papel do governo em questões raciais, a relação de financiamento de campanha para a liberdade de expressão e a estrutura da Constituição. Ele também se noabilizou ao procurar manter o decoro no banco durante os argumentos orais. Elena Kagan Juíza da Suprema Corte desde agosto de 2010, cresceu em Nova York e é de origem judaica. Depois da faculdade de direito em Harvard, ela trabalhou com o juiz Thurgood Marshall e foi a primeira reitora da Harvard Law School. Também foi brevemente procuradora-geral dos Estados Unidos, ou seja, a principal representante do governo federal na Suprema Corte dos EUA, antes de ser nomeada pelo então presidente Barack Obama para a Suprema Corte. Kagan é a primeira integrante da casa em décadas a não ter servido anteriormente como juiza. Ela faz parte da “ala esquerda” da corte, mas foi relatora de muitas decisões recentes unânimes ou quase unânimes. Sua escrita é muitas vezes fácil para um leigo entender, sem sacrificar a análise jurídica, e ela é uma questionadora agressiva durante as sustentações orais. Sonia Sotomayor Juíza na suprema corte desde agosto de 2009, ela nasceu de pais porto-riquenhos no Bronx. Como estudante da Universidade de Princeton, ela lutou pela admissão de mais professores e alunos latinos naquela universidade. Foi promotora em Nova York e mais tarde foi nomeada para o Segundo Tribunal de Apelações. Sotomayor tem sido uma das juízas em maior evidência dentre os colegas da corte. Seu livro de memórias aparece na lista de best-sellers do New York Times e ela até apareceu duas vezes no programa Vila Sésamo. Ao discordar de uma decisão por 5 a 3 num caso envolvendo a proibição de políticas de ação afirmativa, Sotomayor argumentou diretamente contra os juízes conservadores sobre como o tribunal deveria tratar os desafios às leis raciais. "A raça importa. A raça é importante em parte devido à longa história das minorias raciais" tendo negado o acesso ao processo político, disse, na ocasião. Samuel Alito Membro da Suprema Corte desde janeiro de 2006, Alito cresceu em Nova Jersey em uma família de imigrantes italianos. Enquanto estava na Universidade de Princeton, participou de grupos conservadores e libertários, bem como no Corpo de Treinamento de Oficiais de Reserva do Exército. Depois de fazer a faculdade de direito de Yale, foi promotor em Nova Jersey e serviu na administração Reagan, no Departamento de Justiça, inclusive como assistente do advogado-geral, onde chegou a debater perante a Suprema Corte. Segundo informações da BBC, o presidente George H W Bush nomeou-o para o Terceiro Tribunal de Apelações em 1990, onde permaneceu até sua indicação para a Suprema Corte. Alito é conservador e nem sempre é falante em sustentações orais, mas suas perguntas são nítidas, com o objetivo de separar a lógica de um argumento. Tem sido apontado como "pró-governo" em casos criminais, e mostrou menos disposição do que seus colegas conservadores para proteger a liberdade de expressão nos casos em que ela é preconceituosa ou incitadora de ódio. Alito votou com a maioria num caso trabalhista em que o tribunal decidiu que sindicatos não poderiam cobrar honorários de trabalhadores de saúde em Illinois que não quisessem se filiar, apesar de estarem cobertos por acordos coletivos. "Se aceitássemos o argumento de Illinois", aprovaríamos uma violação sem precedentes do princípio fundamental de que, exceto talvez nas mais raras circunstâncias, nenhuma pessoa neste país pode ser compelida a subsidiar a fala de um terceiro que ele ou ela não deseja apoiar”. Stephen Breyer Na Suprema Corte desde agosto de 1994, cresceu em San Francisco com um pai advogado e uma mãe militante política ativa, e é considerado da ala mais liberal do tribunal. Frequentou a Universidade de Stanford e depois a escola de direito de Harvard. Depois de trabalhar com o juiz Arthur Goldberg, ele entrou para o governo, trabalhando como advogado em vários cargos no Congresso, inclusive como promotor especial assistente na investigação do caso Watergate. Passou um longo período de tempo no Primeiro Circuito da Corte de Apelações e foi considerado para uma indicação ao Supremo Tribunal em 1991, mas não chegou a ser indicado naquele ano. O então presidente Bill Clinton apontou Breyer em 1994. Breyer acredita que o tribunal precisa considerar a história das leis, a opinião do Congresso e as conseqüências de suas decisões. Ele formula questões hipotéticas na tentativa de aproximar as opiniões dos demais membros do tribunal. Foi o que fez por exemplo ao relatar uma decisão que resultou em 9 votos a 0 num caso sobre o poder do presidente de nomear juízes e outras autoridades durante os recessos do Senado. Conservadores e liberais concordaram em votar contra o presidente, mesmo não concordando com todos os detalhes. Ruth Bader Ginsburg Outra nova-iorquina, ela é juíza da Suprema Corte desde 1993. Estudou em Cornell, Columbia e Harvard. De perfil mais liberal, como advogada e professora, se concentrou na área do direito das mulheres, começando o primeiro jornal de direito focado no tema e atuando em seis casos a respeito perante a Suprema Corte. Foi confirmada para o tribunal federal de apelações do Distrito de Columbia em 1980 e, 13 anos depois, foi nomeada pelo presidente Bill Clinton para a Suprema Corte. Clarence Thomas Juiz da Suprema Corte desde outubro de 1991, nasceu em uma pequena cidade na Geórgia e esteve num seminário por algum tempo, estundando em seguida no Holy Cross College e na escola de direito de Yale. Trabalhou no governo de Missouri e em Washington antes de ser nomeado presidente da Comissão de Oportunidades Iguais de Trabalho, uma agência que responde a reivindicações de discriminação no local de trabalho. Depois de uma audiência de confirmação contundente, na qual uma ex-funcionária o acusou de assédio sexual, Thomas foi aprovado para a Suprema Corte, com apenas 43 anos. Apesar da origem afro-americana, este conservador é considerado um “desconfiado” das políticas de ação afirmativa. Neil Gorsuch Membro da Suprema Corte desde abril de 2017, quando tinha apenas 49 anos, este nativo do Colorado estudou em Harvard e Oxford. Antes, foi indicado ao 10º Circuito de Apelações dos EUA em 2006 pelo então presidente George W. Bush. Iniciou sua carreira trabalhando com os juízes da Suprema Corte Byron White e Anthony Kennedy, e também atuou num escritório privado em Washington por uma década, além de servir como assistente adjunto da Procuradoria Geral no Departamento de Justiça sob o governo Bush. Gorsuch sucedeu o falecido juiz da Suprema Corte Antonin Scalia e é considerado pelos conservadores como alguém que tem uma interpretação igualmente estrita da lei. Em seu primeiro ano na corte, ele consolidou a vantagem conservadora de 5 a 4, e isso foi visto em uma série de decisões sobre questões como o veto à entrada de imigrantes de Trump, taxas sindicais e o chamado “gerrymandering”, a manipulação de distritos eleitorais para favorecer determinado partido, como nota a rede BBC.

Donald Trump cumprimenta o juiz Brett Kavanaugh, novo integrante da Suprema Corte dos Estados Unidos Reuters/Jim Bourg O presidente dos Estados Unidos, Donald Trump, indicou o conservador Brett Kavanaugh para ocupar uma cadeira na Suprema Corte do país. O anúncio foi feito na noite desta segunda-feira (9), na Casa Branca, em Washington. O nome de Kavanaugh ainda depende de aprovação do Senado dos Estados Unidos. Kavanaugh, 53 anos, era juiz da Corte de Apelações do Distrito de Columbia. O indicado vai ocupar a vaga deixada por Anthony Kennedy, que vai se aposentar. No anúncio, Trump elogiou a "impecável qualificação" de Kavanaugh, a quem chamou de "um jurista brilhante", para o cargo. "Não há ninguém nos Estados Unidos mais qualificado e que mereça mais do que Kavanaugh", disse Trump. Kavanaugh agradeceu Trump pela confiança e discursou acompanhado da mulher e das filhas. "Um juiz deve interpretar a lei, e não escrevê-la", disse, em discurso. Próximos passos A escolha de Trump ainda não coloca Kavanaugh na cadeira antes ocupada por Kennedy. O novo juiz da Suprema Corte terá ainda uma dura batalha no Senado dos Estados Unidos para garantir a aprovação. Isso porque Trump detém uma minúscula maioria no Senado: são 51 senadores Republicanos - do partido do presidente - contra 49 senadores democratas. Poucos minutos depois da nomeação de Kavanaugh, o senador Chuck Schumer, líder da minoria democrata, anunciou que vai lutar para barrar o juiz indicado. "Vou me opor [à nomeação] com tudo que eu puder", disse Schumer, acrescentando que "os direitos reprodutivos da mulher estarão nas mãos de cinco homens na Suprema Corte". A aprovação ou rejeição de Kavanaugh deve ser decidida no Senado nos próximos dias. Quem é Brett Kavanaugh? O indicado por Trump manteve a tendência do presidente em selecionar nomes conservadores à Suprema Corte. Católico, Kavanaugh se formou na Universidade de Yale e ficou conhecido por manter uma interpretação originalista da legislação - ou seja, decide de acordo com o que está disposto "na letra da lei". Kavanaugh irritou ambientalistas ao rejeitar regulações sobre emissão de gases estufa na época do governo Barack Obama no Distrito de Columbia, onde fica a capital Washington. Ele também se tornou célebre por ser contra a recontagem dos votos na Flórida nas eleições de 2000, quando George W. Bush venceu Al Gore na disputa presidencial. A votação se notabilizou justamente porque a vitória do republicano naquele estado, por uma pequena margem, garantiu que Bush governasse o país nos quatro anos seguintes. Kavanaugh também esteve à frente do relatório do pedido de impeachment de Bill Clinton, em 1998. Ele argumentava, à época, que o então presidente deveria ser afastado do cargo por ter mentido sobre o escândalo sexual com Monica Lewinsky. Consolidação conservadora A aposentadoria do juiz Anthony Kennedy deu a Donald Trump a oportunidade de consolidar um viés conservador na Suprema Corte. Como aponta o colunista do G1 Helio Gurovitz, a indicação de um juiz de perfil mais conservador que Kennedy poderá mudar a posição da Corte em casos críticos em que ele votou com a metade liberal, que incluem: casamento entre pessoas do mesmo sexo pena de morte e prisão em solitária ação afirmativa leis ambientais aborto Kennedy foi indicado pelo republicano Ronald Reagan depois que o Senado recusou seu nome preferido, Robert Bork, numa batalha histórica. Seu perfil ideológico sempre foi difícil de classificar. No tribunal liberal então liderado por William Brennan, era visto como um voto conservador. Na corte encabeçada por John Roberts, que emergiu da presidência George W. Bush, foi em diversos casos um voto pendular e decisivo. Desde 2010, Kennedy votou com a maioria em 92% dos casos (76% nos decididos por um voto) – embora sua média tenha caído para 84% no último ano, atrás de Roberts, com 87%. Aborto e homossexualidade Em 2016, Kennedy votou com a maioria liberal pela derrubada de leis que procuravam restringir o direito ao aborto no Texas. Neste ano, reviu sua posição tradicional contra políticas de ação afirmativa num caso envolvendo a Universidade do Texas. Mas apoiou o veto do governo Trump à entrada no país de viajantes de países específicos (quase todos de maioria muçulmana) e o direito de confeiteiros não fornecerem o bolo de casamento a um casal homossexual. Uma nova tentativa estadual de legislar a respeito do aborto poderia ter mais sucesso com um juiz conservador. Punições duras aos criminosos, como as solitárias (que hoje abrigam algo como 100 mil americanos), teriam chance de apoio num tribunal sem Kennedy. Embora contra as solitárias, ele sempre foi um voto confiável nas decisões favoráveis à pena de morte. Sua posição a favor do casamento gay decidiu dois casos históricos, de 2013 e 2015. “A esperança deles é não estar condenados a viver na solidão, excluídos de uma das instituições mais antigas da civilização. Pedem por dignidade igual aos olhos da lei”, escreveu. “A Constituição lhes garante tal direito.” Mesmo com um novo juiz mais conservador, é improvável que essa conquista dos homossexuais esteja ameaçada. Meio ambiente e porte de armas Na legislação ambiental, Kennedy foi voto decisivo num caso sobre a poluição dos rios e noutro que obrigou o governo a determinar se emissões de gases causadores do efeito estufa oferecem risco à saúde ou ao clima. Há pouca chance de que um juiz indicado por Trump não seja mais simpático às indústrias poluidoras, de petróleo ou carvão. Em 14 dos 17 casos recentes em que seu voto definiu o resultado, Kennedy ficou com a maioria conservadora. Além de apoiar os confeiteiros e o veto aos viajantes, aprovou o redesenho de distritos eleitorais texanos, ainda que por critérios interpretados como raciais. Votou também pelo direito individual ao porte de armas, pelo enfraquecimento das limitações à identificação dos eleitores (impondo uma restrição indireta ao voto de negros e latinos) e contra qualquer limite ao financiamento privado de campanhas eleitorais, em nome do direito à liberdade de expressão. Nenhuma dessas decisões mudaria com um novo juiz de perfil conservador. Veja quem são os atuais juízes da Suprema Corte americana: Primeira fila, da esquerda para a direita: Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Anthony Kennedy, John Roberts., Clarence Thomas e Stephen Breyer. Na fila de trás: Elena Kagan, Samuel Alito, Sonia Sotomayor e Neil Gorsuch Suprema Corte dos EUA Anthony Kennedy Na Suprema Corte desde fevereiro de 1988, californiano de uma família de juristas, frequentou a Universidade de Stanford e a London School of Economics antes de assumir o escritório de seu pai. Após trabalhar com o então governador da Califórnia, Ronald Reagan, foi indicado, aos 39 anos, como o mais jovem juiz num tribunal de apelação federal no país na época. Inicialmente preterido para uma nomeação do Supremo Tribunal, Reagan o indicou novamente para ele depois que seu primeiro candidato, Robert Bork, foi rejeitado pelo Senado. Como informa a rede britânica BBC, Kennedy, que agora se aposenta, foi várias vezes o voto decisivo da Suprema Corte, dando o voto de 5 a 4, e votou com a esquerda em algumas ocasiões, como no caso do casamento gay. O princípio de Kennedy para muitas dessas decisões foi se as leis permitem a "dignidade". Kennedy considerou o Ato de Defesa do Casamento (Doma), uma lei que proíbe o reconhecimento de casamentos entre pessoas do mesmo sexo, inconstitucional, apontando que seu “objetivo principal é impor a desigualdade” e “diz aos casais [homossexuais] e a todo o mundo que seus casamentos válidos são indignos do reconhecimento federal (...) E isso humilha dezenas de milhares de pessoas e de crianças sendo criadas por casais do mesmo sexo". John Roberts No tribunal desde setembro de 2005, Roberts nasceu em Nova York e foi criado em Indiana, Frequentou um internato na adolescência, mas também passou verões trabalhando em uma siderúrgica. Depois de cogitar se tornar um historiador em Harvard, foi para a faculdade de direito e passou a trabalhar para um juiz. Passou muitos anos como advogado no governo Reagan e depois trabalhou num escritório privado, servindo como um dos vários conselheiros legais de George W. Bush no caso da recontagem presidencial da Flórida. Conservador, Roberts é o terceiro mais novo presidente da Suprema Corte, confirmado aos 50 anos de idade. O mandato do ano passado viu mais da metade de seus casos decididos por unanimidade, algo que muitos observadores da corte citam como o resultado do desejo de Roberts de promover acordos entre os magistrados através de decisões mais restritas. Ele também relatou, de maneira notável, a votação de 5 a 4 que derrubou um grande desafio à lei de saúde do presidente Barack Obama, o Obamacare. Ele dá sinais de não querer grandes oscilações, exceto em áreas que ele sente muito fortemente, como o papel do governo em questões raciais, a relação de financiamento de campanha para a liberdade de expressão e a estrutura da Constituição. Ele também se noabilizou ao procurar manter o decoro no banco durante os argumentos orais. Elena Kagan Juíza da Suprema Corte desde agosto de 2010, cresceu em Nova York e é de origem judaica. Depois da faculdade de direito em Harvard, ela trabalhou com o juiz Thurgood Marshall e foi a primeira reitora da Harvard Law School. Também foi brevemente procuradora-geral dos Estados Unidos, ou seja, a principal representante do governo federal na Suprema Corte dos EUA, antes de ser nomeada pelo então presidente Barack Obama para a Suprema Corte. Kagan é a primeira integrante da casa em décadas a não ter servido anteriormente como juiza. Ela faz parte da “ala esquerda” da corte, mas foi relatora de muitas decisões recentes unânimes ou quase unânimes. Sua escrita é muitas vezes fácil para um leigo entender, sem sacrificar a análise jurídica, e ela é uma questionadora agressiva durante as sustentações orais. Sonia Sotomayor Juíza na suprema corte desde agosto de 2009, ela nasceu de pais porto-riquenhos no Bronx. Como estudante da Universidade de Princeton, ela lutou pela admissão de mais professores e alunos latinos naquela universidade. Foi promotora em Nova York e mais tarde foi nomeada para o Segundo Tribunal de Apelações. Sotomayor tem sido uma das juízas em maior evidência dentre os colegas da corte. Seu livro de memórias aparece na lista de best-sellers do New York Times e ela até apareceu duas vezes no programa Vila Sésamo Ao discordar de uma decisão por 5 a 3 num caso envolvendo a proibição de políticas de ação afirmativa, Sotomayor argumentou diretamente contra os juízes conservadores sobre como o tribunal deveria tratar os desafios às leis raciais. "A raça importa. A raça é importante em parte devido à longa história das minorias raciais" tendo negado o acesso ao processo político, disse, na ocasião. Samuel Alito Membro da Suprema Corte desde janeiro de 2006, Alito cresceu em Nova Jersey em uma família de imigrantes italianos. Enquanto estava na Universidade de Princeton, participou de grupos conservadores e libertários, bem como no Corpo de Treinamento de Oficiais de Reserva do Exército. Depois de fazer a faculdade de direito de Yale, foi promotor em Nova Jersey e serviu na administração Reagan, no Departamento de Justiça, inclusive como assistente do advogado-geral, onde chegou a debater perante a Suprema Corte. Segundo informações da BBC, o presidente George H W Bush nomeou-o para o Terceiro Tribunal de Apelações em 1990, onde permaneceu até sua indicação para a Suprema Corte. Alito é conservador e nem sempre é falante em sustentações orais, mas suas perguntas são nítidas, com o objetivo de separar a lógica de um argumento. Tem sido apontado como "pró-governo" em casos criminais, e mostrou menos disposição do que seus colegas conservadores para proteger a liberdade de expressão nos casos em que ela é preconceituosa ou incitadora de ódio. Alito votou com a maioria num caso trabalhista em que o tribunal decidiu que sindicatos não poderiam cobrar honorários de trabalhadores de saúde em Illinois que não quisessem se filiar, apesar de estarem cobertos por acordos coletivos. "Se aceitássemos o argumento de Illinois", aprovaríamos uma violação sem precedentes do princípio fundamental de que, exceto talvez nas mais raras circunstâncias, nenhuma pessoa neste país pode ser compelida a subsidiar a fala de um terceiro que ele ou ela não deseja apoiar”. Stephen Breyer Na Suprema Corte desde agosto de 1994, cresceu em San Francisco com um pai advogado e uma mãe militante política ativa, e é considerado da ala mais liberal do tribunal. Frequentou a Universidade de Stanford e depois a escola de direito de Harvard. Depois de trabalhar com o juiz Arthur Goldberg, ele entrou para o governo, trabalhando como advogado em vários cargos no Congresso, inclusive como promotor especial assistente na investigação do caso Watergate. Passou um longo período de tempo no Primeiro Circuito da Corte de Apelações e foi considerado para uma indicação ao Supremo Tribunal em 1991, mas não chegou a ser indicado naquele ano. O então presidente Bill Clinton apontou Breyer em 1994. Breyer acredita que o tribunal precisa considerar a história das leis, a opinião do Congresso e as conseqüências de suas decisões. Ele formula questões hipotéticas na tentativa de aproximar as opiniões dos demais membros do tribunal. Foi o que fez por exemplo ao relatar uma decisão que resultou em 9 votos a 0 num caso sobre o poder do presidente de nomear juízes e outras autoridades durante os recessos do Senado. Conservadores e liberais concordaram em votar contra o presidente, mesmo não concordando com todos os detalhes. Ruth Bader Ginsburg Outra nova-iorquina, ela é juíza da Suprema Corte desde 1993. Estudou em Cornell, Columbia e Harvard. De perfil mais liberal, como advogada e professora, se concentrou na área do direito das mulheres, começando o primeiro jornal de direito focado no tema e atuando em seis casos a respeito perante a Suprema Corte. Foi confirmada para o tribunal federal de apelações do Distrito de Columbia em 1980 e, 13 anos depois, foi nomeada pelo presidente Bill Clinton para a Suprema Corte. Clarence Thomas Juiz da Suprema Corte desde outubro de 1991, nasceu em uma pequena cidade na Geórgia e esteve num seminário por algum tempo, estundando em seguida no Holy Cross College e na escola de direito de Yale. Trabalhou no governo de Missouri e em Washington antes de ser nomeado presidente da Comissão de Oportunidades Iguais de Trabalho, uma agência que responde a reivindicações de discriminação no local de trabalho. Depois de uma audiência de confirmação contundente, na qual uma ex-funcionária o acusou de assédio sexual, Thomas foi aprovado para a Suprema Corte, com apenas 43 anos. Apesar da origem afro-americana, este conservador é considerado um “desconfiado” das políticas de ação afirmativa. Neil Gorsuch Membro da Suprema Corte desde abril de 2017, quando tinha apenas 49 anos, este nativo do Colorado estudou em Harvard e Oxford. Antes, foi indicado ao 10º Circuito de Apelações dos EUA em 2006 pelo então presidente George W. Bush. Iniciou sua carreira trabalhando com os juízes da Suprema Corte Byron White e Anthony Kennedy, e também atuou num escritório privado em Washington por uma década, além de servir como assistente adjunto da Procuradoria Geral no Departamento de Justiça sob o governo Bush. Gorsuch sucedeu o falecido juiz da Suprema Corte Antonin Scalia e é considerado pelos conservadores como alguém que tem uma interpretação igualmente estrita da lei. Em seu primeiro ano na corte, ele consolidou a vantagem conservadora de 5 a 4, e isso foi visto em uma série de decisões sobre questões como o veto à entrada de imigrantes de Trump, taxas sindicais e o chamado “gerrymandering”, a manipulação de distritos eleitorais para favorecer determinado partido, como nota a rede BBC.

    KELLY CALDWELL

    Overnight, someone left three fat softballs in the dog run in Tompkins Square Park, and this morning, the dogs are delirious with joy. A few skirmishes break out, but for the most part, the dogs just play. They tug-of-war, and take turns “losing.” They catch a softball and then coyly entice one another to chase. They race back and forth in pairs or clumps of three, shoulders bumping, fetching and catching, til all of their long, pink tongues are drooping out the sides of their mouths.
         In New York City, people avoid eye contact and don’t talk much to one another in public spaces, but in the Tompkins Square Park dog run, on early weekday mornings, it’s different. We talk. We know each other’s names, not just the dogs’. Usually, we move around, following our dogs, sipping hot drinks and chatting with whoever we’re nearest to.
         Today, though, we’re knitted together at one end of the run. The only thing on anyone’s mind is the news: More than 2,000 migrant children separated from their parents at the U.S. borders. It’s a firestorm that’s been raging for four days. We ruminate over the details: The audio released on Monday by ProPublica—seven minutes of children wailing, calling for Mami or Papa, and one clear, small voice repeating her aunt’s phone number again, and again. The ever-shifting and inadequate attempts by Administration officials to justify the policy. The lawsuit revealing that some children were subdued with powerful psychiatric drugs.
         We pause for a moment. A dissonance hangs over us, between the comic antics of our dogs and the heaviness in the air.
         It’s the stupid, pink dog dish all over again, I’m thinking.
         Three days ago, in my Advanced Memoir class, we talked about the subjective lens of the narrator, and a passage from Story Genius by Lisa Cron: “After all, we know from personal experience that when something genuinely horrid is going on, it’s always with us, no matter how much we pretend it isn’t. It not only filters everything we see, it tells us what to look for.”
         No matter what is happening in the scene, I told my students, you have to get the deeper emotion onto the page. The examples I gave were comparatively low-stakes: how after your first break-up, just buying your morning bagel was searing and poignant because it was your first break-up bagel.
         The example I did not give, but that I was thinking about, was of another morning in Tompkins Square Park, nine months earlier. My dog Pops and I had left the run, and stopped near the rose bushes so I could give him a drink before heading home. While I pulled out a water bottle and a hot pink collapsible dog dish from my bag, I was listening to NPR report that, in the wake of Hurricane Maria, more than half the people in Puerto Rico didn’t have clean water. In desperation, Puerto Ricans had reopened wells that were closed because of superfund-level contamination; they were drinking water mixed with untreated sewage. Water-borne diseases were breaking out, and health officials were worried about cholera.
         Puerto Rican men, women, and children are at risk of cholera, I thought, and I’m pouring filtered water into a pink, plastic dish for my dog.
         I’m not apologizing for watering a thirsty animal. That’s my responsibility. It is also someone’s responsibility to bring clean water to Puerto Rico.
         That was October, and still, every time I pull out that stupid pink bowl, I remember it. I’m thinking about it again, this morning, as Pops and I leave the run and I take out the dish. Thankfully, I’m interrupted, because we bump into Kate, a work colleague and a poet. She and I are both a bit sheepish at first, because she’s in workout clothes and I’m in grubby dog run clothes, but we get over it pretty quickly, partly because Pops is mugging and wriggling for her attention, but also partly because we’re genuinely delighted to see each other. “I can’t believe we’ve lived this close to each other all this time!” she says.
         That’s another thing I love about this park. In the heart of Manhattan’s East Village, it’s a magnet that draws in everyone. As Kate and I chat, there’s a teenage girl, possibly a runaway, panhandling for change, while nearby, parents in expensive suits and shoes lead backpack-laden kids to the bus stop. An older Hispanic man wheels a giant speaker past us—he’s a fixture here. He’ll set up near the basketball courts and blast salsa music for hours. The benches are all dotted with people in coveralls or khakis or sapphire blue blazers, eating egg sandwiches, drinking coffee, and scrolling on their phones, a few moments of quiet before heading to work.
         At my work, it’s a day of meeting, talking, and teaching. I interview a teaching candidate who wrote and illustrated a charming and funny picture book about a mouse and a chipmunk fighting over an acorn. Lesson? Learn to share. One of our interns wants to write an op-ed about the treatment of women in the music industry, and we work together to develop her ideas. I trade emails with my friend and fellow teacher Mary, who I haven’t seen since April, when she got hit by a car. She gives me an update on her shattered leg, and I tell her how much everyone at the office misses her.
         I’m running late to dinner, but I take a big, blue CitiBike down the Hudson River Parkway anyway. I don’t want to risk being even later because of a subway delay, but also, I want to take in the sunset. I’m not the only one with that idea—the paths are crowded with New Yorkers jogging and strolling and biking, and I have to pay extra close attention, because everyone’s eyes are trained on the river. Tonight, the sunset really is that beautiful.
         Dinner is a celebration. After two years of working in DC, our friend Indrani  found a great job back home in New York City, and she and her wife Dina are finally living under the same roof again. They got married last August and after their honeymoon, they rode separate trains to separate homes. Commuter relationships put a strain on both partners, and though Dina and Indrani handled it well, my husband and I could see it wearing on them. You can acknowledge your privilege all day long—we’re lucky we can afford two apartments, they’d say; we’re lucky to have such great support, they’d say—but when you’re exhausted because you got up at 4a.m. to take a three-hour train ride to work, you’re exhausted. When you yearn for someone, you yearn for them.
         Kent and I are thrilled that this separation is over, and selfishly, we’re thrilled that we’ll get to see our friends more often now. Indrani’s office is not far from mine, and we talk about meeting for lunch or after work in Bryant Park, a swath of green behind the New York Public Library, the branch with the stone lions.
         When our drinks come, we raise our glasses and all four of us toast at once. “Welcome home, Indrani!” I say. “Here’s to good friends and more good times together,” Dina says. “Well done, Indrani,” Kent says.
         Indrani chimes in last. “Here’s to being together,” she says, her voice thick with emotion.
         It brings everything to a screeching halt, and for one long moment, we gaze at one another, anguished. We will carry on with our celebrating, but all evening, thrumming beneath everything, is one, insistent thought: It’s not a privilege, being with the people you love. Or, it shouldn’t be. 
         At home, Kent and I find that Pops has soiled the living room floor. After more than two years of good behavior, he’s insulted the rug three times in just the last week. It’s been a busy week, and Pops has been home alone a little more than usual. “He might be a bit too accustomed to having you around,” I say to Kent as we clean up.
         But secretly, I sympathize. When your people are missing, you’ve got to do something.

    LAWRENCE LENHART 

    DO

    I peek over the wife-shaped hump in the bed, see the baby monitor lit green. Our eleven-month-old son is standing in his crib, his fingers curled around the rungs. We had decided the night before that I would be the one to wake with him this morning.

    THINK

    This is a good system, deciding on these sorts of things the night before as it prevents the kind of pleading, arguing, groveling that happened during the first months (e.g., “I did it the last two days. Will you get him today?” “I didn’t get to bed until late. I need more sleep.” “I fed him twice last night. Will you please step the fuck up?”).

    DO

    I alternate between sleepy eyes as I change his diaper, throw it in the pail, remind myself I need to change the bag SOON.

    DO

    In the kitchen, I make a bowl of cereal for myself (Trader Joe’s Vanilla Almond) and prepare a goblet of Cheerios (no milk) for Milo. That’s my son.

    DO

    I set him on the floor in the living room and surround him with his favorite toys. He smiles at me like he’s just hit the jackpot. Like he might be spoiled. I turn on The Vietnam War. I’m only 6.5 hours into the 18-hour Ken Burns documentary.

    THINK

    I am watching it because 1) it’s summer and I have the time; 2) it fits into my ritualist disenchantment process with America; and 3) my wife just discovered (through Ancestry.com) that she has a half-Vietnamese uncle. Apparently, her grandfather had an affair during the war. After some encouragement from his Amerasian friends, her half-uncle signed up for an Ancestry account and discovered his half-sister (my mother-in-law).

    THINK

    There’s this one thread that’s not working concerning Denton Crocker Jr. (aka Mogie). I see what Burns is trying to do with his story, and maybe that’s the problem. It’s a Stalinesque maneuver: a single death is a tragedy/a million deaths is a statistic. Oh, wait: spoiler alert.

    DO

    I look up the wonderfully mimetic word ‘loblolling’ after a Vietnam veteran uses it to describe bombs descending toward the earth, toward his platoon.

    DO

    Milo has recently been fascinated with a martyoshka-style book. There are ten cubes total, and the walls of each cube are illustrated (with a snake, a saguaro, a cactus wren).

    THINK

    I worry that if he gnaws the smallest one too much, he will deface it beyond recognition and I won’t remember what it says when he’s verbal and asks, “What did it use to say?”

    DO

    I take a picture of each side of the cube just in case. Milo crawls away, and I pull him back by his leg. He crawls away again, and I pull. He cracks up.

    DO

    Milo and I take the tortoise to the backyard. I fill his bath with water from the hose. I admire the bath that I’ve created. It’s an inverted RV skylight filled with landscaping rocks, positioned in a dry stream in the backyard.

    THINK

    I worry there is too much pine pitch in the bath. I think I read tortoises can die if they ingest sap.

    DO

    The tortoise excuses himself from the bath and begins wandering through the yard. I hoist Milo to the bells we’ve hung from branches in the tree. We walk from bell to bell. I call it Bell Walk (a pun after Sedona’s Bell Rock). I ask him if he remembers when we bought these bells at Byodo-In Temple in Oahu. These at the Ferry Building in San Francisco. These in—I don’t remember where we got these.

    DO

    My wife wakes up. I give her a kiss. She wrinkles her nose in resistance because she hasn’t brushed her teeth yet. While she feeds Milo, I go for a run. I run across the cul-de-sac, down the mulch trail to the paved trail, along the paved trail past the park and into the designated “open space,” which is a ponderosa meadow. I cross the road to the trail’s extension (1.0 mile), all the way to the airport (1.74 miles). I turn around, facing the mountain now, and do my best to negative split. My IT band begins hurting, a years-old injury that I can’t seem to overcome. I check my time at the 5K (a sluggish 26:31).

    THINK

    While running, I start daydreaming about when I used to run in high school. I think about our rivals, Latrobe High—alma mater of Arnold Palmer and Fred Rogers. I wonder if their coach was really as shrewd as we made him out to be. It’s the coach’s responsibility to walk the visiting team all around the 3.1-mile course before the meet. I am remembering the time he gave us the wrong directions. I turned right and had to backtrack, which cost us the match. We assumed he did it on purpose, but maybe he didn’t. I think I am finally coming to peace with this defeat now, twelve years later. It is as cathartic as it is pathetic.

    DO

    I finish the run. On a boulder at the end of my driveway, I sit and analyze the splits on my running app.

    DO

    We leave the house as a family. Go to coffee, lunch, the playground, Walgreen’s. We need to kill two hours while the cleaners do their thing.

    META

    (At this point, I feel the need to defend this very bourgeois sentence. But I don’t feel like it this time.)

    SUMMARY

    Coffee highlight: none.

    Lunch highlight: the men behind us—workers on their lunch break—speak English until six police enter the building, at which point they begin speaking in mostly Spanish. I tell Andie I need to wash my hands before we leave. I look at myself in the mirror in the bathroom and can’t work myself up to smile. I cry a little bit. Because there’s no line as I cross the counter on the way back, I decide to buy a $1 sugar cone. I hand it to Andie who shares it with Milo. I congratulate myself on being a good father, good husband. 

    THINK

    There was a time in my life when I thought sharing an ice cream cone with other mouths was the ultimate repulsion.

    SUMMARY

    Playground highlights: A man locks his car with a padlock and tries to make Milo laugh by putting a cup in his mouth like a beak. Milo doesn’t laugh. We forgot the sunscreen, so Milo has to stay mostly in the shade. There are drums and xylophones and chimes on the playground. Andie picks up the mallets and begins playing. She used to be in the drum pit in high school. Milo smiles as she plays. I smile too. We’ve been together for six years, but she still finds new ways to entertain me.

    SUMMARY

    Walgreen’s highlight: They changed her birth control on her again. We curse at the misogyny of it. My prescription isn’t ready. I worry that I’ll be wheezing in Belize. I say it aloud: “I’ll be wheezing in Belize.” Andie replies: “I won’t let that happen to you.” She is so emphatic and protective, it makes us both laugh. Her tone was clearly accidental. She immediately calls our GP and reups my prescription.

    THINK

    It would have taken me at least 3 days to make that call on my own.

    DO

    Because we haven’t quite killed two hours, we decide to look for houses for Andie’s parents who are thinking about moving to Flagstaff. We discover a new neighborhood in Flagstaff and drive laps around it, three times. We find “the perfect house” for them, but then discover there are phone lines criss-crossing over the backyard. Andie’s dad will veto. It’s no longer the perfect house.

    DO

    Milo is sleeping in the carseat. We have a mirror attached to the back-center headrest that reflects his activities back to the rearview mirror. I wave to him, and he waves back, choppily. When he falls asleep, I peek at him. My new car tells me: “Driver Attention is Low.” Fuck that. I’m paying attention.

    DO

    “Do you not want your Father’s Day card?” Andie asks. I tell her I do. “Then why did you put it with the old mail?” I remind her I was just consolidating stacks of paper the day before when my friend Mia came over. I go to the bathroom.

    META

    (Come to think of it, I must have gone to the bathroom earlier too. I just didn’t record it. Not paying attention after all.)

    THINK

    Here, I am reminded of Georges Perec’s Species of Spaces. I think about this one exercise in the book, very similar to this “What Happened on June 21” series, in which a family wakes up and goes through their morning routines. The woman is running around, trying to help her husband get on his way to work with pressed clothes and a good breakfast. She does the same for the son. It’s very suburban. Just like us, I suppose. And then, the surveillance-style narrator reports that in her first moment alone, the woman goes to the WC and “performs her toilet.” No matter how objective the narration is, I think it’s supposed to be comical. You have to read it.

    DO

    Andie calls her parents. She yells at her mom because her dad is so picky about the housing. I FaceTime my mom, and she and Milo spend a few minutes waving at each other.

    DO

    Andie watches television (The Bachelor) while she plays with Milo. Halfway in, she says, “I don’t think I’m going to watch this show anymore.” She’s been saying that for the past four seasons, maybe more. I work on my book proposal. It’s the boring part of the book proposal where I’m supposed to compare my proposed book to other titles on the market. I spend a lot of time trying to find a less specific word for “doudouism,” or at least one with a less French connotation. It leads me to an essay by Frantz Fanon. I download a couple essays by Epeli Hau’ofa, read them. Wish I had the whole book. ILL it. I encounter Jane McAdam’s name on several texts.

    THINK

    I would like to meet Jane McAdam someday, ideally in a casual setting like, “Oh, you’re Jane McAdam? That’s cool. I really like your ideas. I just ordered a caipirinha. Would you like something as well?”

    THINK AGAIN

    I wonder if this sounds like I’m trying to pick her up. I’m not. I decide she’ll decide for herself.

    DO

    Andie pauses the television, and asks, “Is that a tear?” The man currently on a one-on-one (date) with the bachelorette is talking about his divorce. He is being unusually vulnerable. I look at his glistening cheek and confirm that he is, in fact, crying. She continues watching the show.

    THINK

    Because my friend Joe spoiled the show for me (“So, how about I was with Carly the other night and she told me that X wins the Bachelor?” he texted), I don’t have to pretend to care about the evolving chemistry of the bachelorette and her misbehaved contestants. At the time, I chastised Joe, but now I think I should thank him.

    DO

    With the show over and the book proposal nearly finished, we take turns getting ready. We are going on a date tonight—our first in months. I text the babysitter’s mom with some details. They live across the street. I put Gillian Welch on shuffle (Spotify). We are going to the Gillian Welch concert tonight. I text my uncle one of the songs: “Here is a song by the musician we’re seeing tonight. It reminds me of something you would like. Very Appalachian,” I say. Andie puts on an olive romper-style jumpsuit. I love the way it looks on her. She curls her hair. Puts glitter on her chest. Picks up Milo. He spits up on her outfit, and we take turns scrubbing and blow-drying the stain. It doesn’t come out. She threatens to change her outfit. And I say, ‘No, you still look great.” She keeps the outfit on. I get ready while Andie walks the babysitter through each room of the house. It’s her first time watching Milo. I use the following products to get ready (in this order): rosemary shampoo, oatmeal exfoliating body scrub, Neutrogena facewash, Dollar Shave Club lather and razor, Proraso aftershave, Degree deodorant, BVLGARI AQVA cologne, Aquafresh toothpaste, TheraBreath Oral Rinse. “I like her voice,” my uncle texts. “It’s soothing.”

    THINK

    I promise myself that I’ll go to my uncle’s funeral when he dies.

    DO

    I cry in the mirror.

    THINK

    Because I don’t wear makeup, crying before a date doesn’t really change anything.

    DO

    Laugh a little.

    THINK

    I have been depressed for about 40 days now. Most days, I am functional. I do a good job of hiding it to the point where Andie usually forgets and Milo doesn’t notice. I congratulate myself on my covert depression.

    DO

    I change Milo’s diaper, get the tortoise out of the backyard. There’s a spider attached to his tail. It “balloons” through the air. We quietly leave the house, not even saying goodbye to our son for fear he’ll freak out.

    DO

    We go to the Annex for dinner. Our first seat doesn’t work out because one of the ladies at the table next to us is desperate for attention. She actually said, “Look at me in this picture” while pointing at her phone’s screen. Look at me. We eat at the bar instead. Andie tells me about a word she’s invented in a new poem: crud-rudder. I love it. We have fun talking about that word. We discuss the neologisms of Paul Celan. I tell her about loblolling. She likes that word too. We start talking about Vietnam, but then the mescal cocktail is too good. I tell her that when I’m in Tucson tomorrow, I’ll buy a whole case of mescal. We both knows it’s just a fantasy, that it’s unlikely I’ll even buy a single bottle. I feel myself blushing as she talks. “We used to talk about your poetry a lot,” I say to her. I’m reminded of our first dates together—back in Tucson. We’re both giddy. Our friends text. They’re already at the concert. We don’t rush. Not until Nicole texts “Two songs in.” Then we pay the bill and repark the car.

    DO

    The cashier at Will Call hands me the tickets so quickly, it makes me think I’m the last person to arrive. The Orpheum is packed, but silent—everyone listening to Welch’s “serene” vox.

    THINK

    I realize I haven’t been to a church since Ireland two summers ago. Before that, it had been a few years more. That’s two churches in five years.

    DO

    After the first set, I see Ted. I see Peter. I see Luke. I see another Luke. Each of them has seen Gillian Welch before. Peter and Luke are talking about the status of their chicken coops. Each has eight chickens. “But who’s counting,” Peter asks. “I am,” I say, somewhat seriously.

    THINK

    I want to ask: Are eight chickens the recommended number for a starter package? Instead, I just listen.

    DO

    I see Annette. She congratulates me on my new job, but reminds me that there are others, including herself, that are not so lucky. I say something like, “My new contract doesn’t start until August.”

    THINK

    I worry I sound cocky. Really, I’m just nervous and worried about professional confrontation.

    DO

    Andie is talking to her friends during the second set. I step away. Standing strategically between speaker and subwoofer, I enjoy a private view of Gillian. I see the new white boots she’s been complaining about (the left one hurts). I see her age, but refuse to put a number to it. In between songs, I go to the merch table and buy Andie a shirt (“the pink one”) and Milo a poster (signed). I ask the cashier where she’s from, if she plays music too. She’s from Nashville. And yes, she plays music too. She detects her own redundancy as we exchange money. Andie doesn’t like the gin and tonic I get her, so I get her Maker’s Mark instead. I get a cup of cubes in case she wants it on the rocks. And a cup with ginger beer in case she wants a mixer.

    THINK

    Andie’s concert etiquette is often brazen. The thrill of a good performance does it to her. I am reminded of her earlier that day, banging the xylophone with the mallets.

    THINK

    She still has secrets, I think. In a good way.

    DO

    Her talking during someone’s favorite song causes a large, angry man to approach her. He waves his hand in front of her face demonstratively and forbids her from speaking for the rest of the show. If it was anyone else asking her to stop talking, I would feel mortified. But because it’s this guy+telling her to stop talking, I feeling activated. Erik and I walk toward him until his back is literally against the wall.

    THINK

    I wonder if I am immature for craving a fight.

    DO

    “Do you know how many square feet are in this place?” I ask him. He shoves me. His girlfriend hails security. “Go find another spot,” I tell him. My lips inches from his.

    THINK

    It’s kind of erotic.

    THINK AGAIN

    Maybe that’s the point?

    DO

    They leave. All this adrenaline at a sedate Gillian Welch show gives me cognitive dissonance. Andie and I stand apart from our friends during the encore. She sings “Look at Miss Ohio.” Andie cries a little. For the past eleven months, we have been singing this melody at bedtime, replacing “Miss Ohio” with “Mr. Milo” as in “Oh me oh my oh, look at Mr. Milo.” I cry too.

    THINK

    It feels more appropriate to cry at a concert than in the mirror.

    DO

    Andie asks me to text the babysitter, but my phone is dead. We hurry home. Inside the door, we see the babysitter at the edge of the couch. The cat is on the arm of the couch. “Riding the rails,” my friend Tommy calls it. “How’s Milo?” Andie asks. “He’s so cute,” the babysitter says. She’s young. Cuteness matters. “How’d it go?” my wife wants to know. “It was good. He had a hard time falling asleep.”

    THINK

    I remember how difficult it was for me to answer How questions when I was younger, especially that one time at the barber. “How are you doing, Larry?” Nancy would ask me. I got tongue-tied. My parents never asked me questions like that.

    DO

    The babysitter has rearranged the pillows on the couch. They’re symmetrical, cool. I almost take a picture to remember the formation, but remember my phone is still dead. I ask Andie if maybe it was the cleaners who did it. “No,” she says. I go to the bathroom—

    META

    (oh yeah, I forgot: I went to the bathroom once at the concert too…) Have you ever seen the episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm where a receptionist [Chacha] in Larry David’s office building counts the frequency with which he uses the restroom?

    DO 

    “Come check this out,” I call for Andie from the bathroom. She enters dubiously. I point at the end of the toilet paper. It’s folded into a triangle. “Did the babysitter do this?” I ask. “Now that was cleaners,” Andie says. And then almost immediately: “Aww, that means the babysitter didn’t use the bathroom the whole time we were gone.” We both laugh at that.

    DO

    We talk in bed, each of us taking turns yanking the concert wristbands off. Apropos nothing, my wife falls asleep while telling me about her first orgasm. “Why are you telling me this?” I ask. Then, she says it was during her first night of babysitting. “I was very young,” she said, almost nervously. It was on a couch after the kid went to bed.

    THINK

    Not that I was really trying to, but I can’t picture our babysitter masturbating. I congratulate myself on a failed imagination.

    DO

    “Andie?” I ask. “Andie?” again. She is sleeping. I scroll through my charging phone, realizing I’ve recorded too much of my day, that I’ll inevitably have to leave a lot out.

    OUTTAKES 

    Descendents’ “Suburban Home”—ironic or not?

    Pause Bachelor to stare at infographic on suicide rates.

    Dave Rawlings (who plays with Gillian Welch). I’d like to look like him when I’m older. Great autograph.

    Fifteen minutes wasted practicing time signatures on my knee—5/4 is fun

    I’ve never had to fire someone per se, but I did have to kick a bass player out of my punk band in high school. (Sorry, Geoff!)

    My car’s corrective driving makes me a less retaliatory driver, but gives me cognitive dissonance.
    Before they’re sentences, these notes feel like a bloated Jason Bredle poem.

    What Happened on June 21, 2018: brain-eating amoeba, commitment, and left-over burgers

    Mornings are sometimes tense between Adam, and me. Adam is my fiancé. [1] Adam thinks my morning routine takes too long. His morning routine is to wake up and immediately take a shit, then proceed from there. My morning routine follows: pee, scrape tongue, brush teeth, nasal irrigation, eye drops, splash face with water. Because we only have one bathroom, I’m often forced to complete my morning routine at the kitchen sink. I use a purple ceramic neti pot filled with water that is initially filtered through a Big Berkey water filtration system, and a quarter teaspoon of uniodized Morton’s Salt. [2] (Distilled water is recommended to avoid introducing bacteria and brain-eating amoeba to my nasal passages, where these bacteria and brain-eating amoeba can live and cause potentially fatal infections, but I don’t use distilled water. [3])
         To avoid having to use the kitchen sink, I try to get out of bed a few minutes before Adam and take care of my business before he gets out of bed and insists on the need to take care of his. If I miss this small window of opportunity, I do small chores around the house. This morning, Adam was up first and so I put away the laundry that had been hanging for days on three separate drying racks in our living room. After he was finished, he lit the lilac and hyacinths candle that sits on the back of the toilet. [4] But, even with the candle, I continued to pace around the house with my toothbrush poking out of my mouth instead of returning to the bathroom to brush my teeth in the steamy-from-the-shower, lilac-imbued stink of our small bathroom. [5]
         After the pacing, I completed my routine and we convened in the kitchen. In the kitchen, at approximately 7:30a.m., I suggested (not for the first time) that Adam see a therapist. As you can imagine, this was a fantastic way to start to the day for both of us.

    Me: “I know you think that we’re having a hard time because we’re both in stressful situations and that it will all get better once work quiets down for you, but the reality is that if things go as we talk about wanting them to go in our Five Year Plan—both of us starting graduate school, buying a house, having babies, getting married, all that—this is only the tip of the iceberg.” [6]

    Me: “Especially the whole baby thing. Just imagine all of this going on between us if we were only ever allowed to get two or three consecutive hours of sleep for months on end? Imagine it. Imagine!!!” [7]

    Me: “Don’t you think things have been better between us since I started seeing a therapist again?”

    Me: “I love you and I think it would be better for us if you also had a stronger support network, or at least started to cultivate that now. I know you talk about not having that since moving to St. Louis, but from what you’ve told me, you haven’t really had the kind of support I’m talking about, and that you deserve, ever. Would you agree with that?”

    Me: “Does that resonate with you? Does what I’m saying resonate with you?” [8]

    Me: “When you glance at your watch when I’m in the middle of sharing something with you, I feel like you’re not listening.”

    Me: “What I need from you is for you to communicate with me if you’re getting anxious about time. Okay? See, there’s another example of something I learned in therapy, or sort of. Actually, that was just yoga school.”

    Me: “What do you mean what am I talking about? The When you ______ , I feel ______ , what I need is ______ formula. Oh, really? Well, we can talk about it tonight.”

    Me: “I still have the names of the therapists my therapist gave me when I asked her for recommendations for you a couple of months ago. But that was when I wanted to stop having to break things down for you about what I was going through with all the sexual stuff. This is different.”

    Me: “Please stop looking at your watch.”

    Me: “Have you heard back from your Aunt Nancy yet about driving to Dayton this weekend? I need to know so I can see about getting someone to cover my shift on Sunday. Do you want me to go along?”

    Me: “What’s different is that I don’t feel crazy. I’m not crazy!”

    Me: “No, I’m not going to send the names of the therapists unless you ask me, so don’t say, “If you want to send them.” This is about what you want. I’m just trying to be clear about what I want and what my needs are.”

    Me: “You know when I’m angry that doesn’t mean I don’t love you.”

    Then, he left for work.

    I had the day off. I had a lot of things on my list of things to do. I only accomplished a few of them, and not even the highest priorities. When Adam returned home for lunch, I was angry at him for the way our morning began and the way this beginning impacted me and my state of mind—and, therefore, my productivity. All morning, I had the apartment to myself. It was quiet but for the buzzing of the neighbors’ air conditioning compressors, so easily heard through the single-pane windows at all times. After Adam left for work, I made myself pancakes and slathered them with butter and grape jelly and a scoop of Greek yogurt. I ate the pancakes while reading the contributor’s notes and correspondence sections for the March or May issue of The Sun Magazine. It was a very pleasant hour.
         Then I moved slowly down the list of things to do. I made several calls to United Healthcare and the orthopedic office at the Barnes-Jewish hospital in go in order to try to figure out how much it would cost me out-of-pocket after insurance to get an MRI (a lot), a call to the dentist to confirm my appointment for a six-month cleaning (feeling on top of things), wrote an email to a friend about the “What Happened on June 21, 2018” project (with a commitment to participate), and made a few changes to and comments on my sister’s cover letter and resume (much easier to get into than working on my own resume). I put the dishes away from last night’s dinner and did dishes from breakfast. I practiced yoga with the guidance of an audio recording and did my physical therapy exercises. And finally, I wrote out my work schedule for next week in my planner. [9] I stared at the weeks and months that make up the rest of the summer. They seemed spent already.
         Around noon, Adam came home for lunch. He works only a few blocks away and so often comes home for lunch. He works for the city and his office is on the fourth floor with a view, in an old octagonal building that was originally built to house a women’s magazine in—I’ll look up the year later, but I think it was the early 1900s. When he came home and poked his head in the “office” (my bedroom) to ask if I wanted any eggs, I tried to ignore him. I carried on emailing my friend as if I were doing important work.
         “No thank you,” I said, still staring intently at the screen. He made himself some eggs and the kitchen had that fishy smell from burning olive oil in the cast iron skillet. When he was done cooking, I went to the kitchen and started to make myself lunch: a salad with strawberries, green onions, a lemon garlic dressing, chopped pecans, and shredded parmesan. As I spun greens in the salad spinner, he walked in with his plate in hand to eat at the butcher block. He was trying to spend time with me.
         “How was your day so far?” I asked. I was trying to be cool, or at least to avoid “getting into things” again. But all he said was, “Fine.” Okay, I thought, so that’s what we’re doing. Pretty soon, we were back to the question of whether or not we’re “on the same page” in our house hunting search and who’s leading the way in terms of the “authentic communication” we both talk about wanting.

    Adam: “I’m sorry about the house. I just wasn’t ready to make a decision so quickly.”

    Adam: “Is there never a time that you feel like I also contribute to honest communication?”

    Adam: “I’m trying really hard. I feel overwhelmed.”

    Adam: “Yes, I am. Every day that I go to work I’m working toward our future family together!”

    You can probably imagine my side of things. We stood in the kitchen hugging for a while. I tried to kiss him, but he went for my forehead instead.
         This morning, when he went to leave on his bicycle, he didn’t say, “I love you.” He just said, “See you later.” I followed him to the door and said, “I love you,” sort of angrily. I didn’t want to deal with feeling guilty for leaving on a bad note if he were to get hit by a car and become brain damaged or paralyzed on the way to work. [10] He relented and said, “I love you, too.” I think it’s okay to say it even when you aren’t necessarily feeling it. I do this all the time with my family. I think maybe we were trying to connect in the kitchen after lunch so that “I love you” would come more naturally when he left again.
         After our brief embrace, he told me about some work stuff and I complained about the cost of health care in the U.S. I reported back to him some of the horrors I’d heard on NPR that morning. And then he put his helmet on and left for work and I got back to my important emails to friends.

    I got to my therapist’s office at 3:30 even though my normal slot is 2:30. We scheduled this one for 3:30 because I asked if I could get a later slot now that I’m working Thursday mornings. Today (Thursday) was the only day she could do 3:30, so we scheduled it. But then I didn’t get scheduled for work today. When I arrived at 3:30, she said she’d been expecting me at 2:30. However, instead of apologizing profusely and insisting I must have been the one who got mixed up, I said what I knew to be true, which was that we’d scheduled it for 3:30 weeks ago. As it turned out, she had 45 minutes until her next client, so I stepped over her dog, Herbie, and sat down in the recliner.
    I was sort of hoping, when she said she had been expecting me at 2:30, that she wouldn’t have time and I wouldn’t have to stay. I’d been taking a nap before driving over and wasn’t really feeling like talking. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to talk about. I’ve actually been feeling sort of hopeful about things for a couple of days, maybe more like 36 hours. And it’s been really nice. I thought going to therapy might ruin the nice, hopeful feeling. [11]
         For the entire session, I talked about Adam. I told my therapist all the details about the house we had looked at last Friday and about the way he’d resisted my intuition and put up a wall. I told her how these things had really pissed me off. I said I was still attached to the idea of the house, which someone else put an offer on immediately upon viewing, which is what I would have liked to do, and the seller accepted it before we even had a chance to put one together. Adam wanted to sleep on it. I told him, “We can’t sleep on it with the market the way it is!” I said this as if I were a realtor or had any real understanding of “the market.” All I knew was that I had written to the realtor the week before that what I (we) really wanted was something grandma had lived in for 50 years and then the universe gave us exactly that. The woman selling the house had lived in it for 52 years and had just moved out of state to be closer to family. And here’s the real kicker, the sign from the divine that we were meant to put in an offer immediately and not “sleep on it”: the grandma’s last name was Brown.
         My last name is Brown.
         And Adam’s last name is Brown.
         And we’re not even married yet. It’s just coincidence that we have the same last name. [12]
    So, obviously, this was a sign. I was sold on the place—big, dry basement (for him to play music) with a finished bathroom (bonus); big yard with enough sun for a big garden; on a cul-de-sac (with children playing in the street = instant friends for my niece and nephew when they visit); and the price was right. But Adam didn’t want to hear it. All he could see was the carpet and wallpaper and huge ornate dining room set. He was anxious about being late to dinner with friends and didn’t want to go over the details of the contract even though I had my notebook and pen out and was taking notes as we re-capped things with our realtor. He wanted to sleep on it and talk about it the next day, even though I had to work at 7:00 the next morning and had already explained to him that I wouldn’t be available to discuss anything until the evening, which would probably be too late. And so, we went to dinner. And we didn’t get the house.
         I told all of this to my therapist, who doesn’t usually hear too much about my current life but instead hears a lot about my childhood and the many questions I have about my childhood. She said my energy was different and that she thought it was because I was talking about issues that were grounded in the present and not in the past. I guess that’s a good thing. Present. Not past.
         People keep telling us that purchasing a home is one of the most stressful things for a couple. I keep telling Adam that he should trust me more because I’m naturally a more practical person. He keeps telling me that he just needs more time because it’s a big decision. All this desire for more time makes my therapist wonder if the two of us aren’t quite ready for commitment. People keep asking us if we have a date set and I give the same line about how I didn’t want to be looking at venues for a reception and tent rental companies when I was supposed to be finishing my thesis for graduate school in the spring. Or I say that Adam’s starting grad school in the fall and I’m planning to start (another program) in the spring, so the earliest we’re thinking is next summer or fall. Sometime. Maybe a year from now. Who knows! Or else I say that we don’t have any money, which isn’t not true. Or that we’re trying to buy a house, which maybe isn’t true after all.
         My therapist asked some questions that resonated: Are you sure you’re ready to buy a house together? Are you sure you’re both ready for that type of commitment? 
    Me: “Well…we might just put it in Adam’s name because we haven’t combined finances. I can’t imagine doing that! Super scary. I’ll just sort of pay him rent. And if I help out with household projects and renovations, we’ll figure out a way to make that fair for me. I’ll get a stake in the property, or he’ll take some agreed upon amount off the top of my rent that month. So really, it’s not that big of a commitment. We just want to stop paying our slum-lord-y landlord rent. And I really want a yard so I can have a garden.”
         Of course, then the therapist asks if I’m sure I want to get married, with all this talk of paying him rent and making things fair. I have a ring on my finger, but the truth is, I’m not sure. And neither is he. Is anyone ever totally sure? [13]
         From the beginning, I told Adam I wouldn’t marry him until he was out of debt. And that I wouldn’t have kids with him until at least one of us had a stable income. [14] And that health insurance would be good. Just a few months ago, for my 31st birthday, he tucked a printout of his credit card statement into a birthday card. It had a $0.00 balance. Happy Birthday, honey. I paid off my credit card! I guess now my “yes” is now more official than it was when he pulled the ring out of his sweatpants pocket in front of City Hall on our walk home from the library last September. 
         Anyway, it’s been three and a half years since we met, and we’ve been living together for about three of those and engaged for, I guess, about nine months. I’m on his insurance plan through work, but I pay him for it. We share a car (really, it’s mine) and a phone plan, split according to use. We split bills and groceries. [15] Here’s what my therapist wanted to know: Did Adam’s hesitation to purchase the $75,000 starter home of our dreams have a deeper meaning? And her questions led me to my own line of questioning: Is my dharma to bake lemon bars for my fiancé’s office co-workers and create a detailed filing system for all of our shared accounts and household projects (user manuals, car insurance statements, notes on construction loan products we might look into)? Or should I be focusing on my writing and the evening writing classes I keep talking about putting together to teach and job applications so that I can stop waitressing? In other words, should I be focusing on my own life? On “me” instead of “we”?

    After therapy, I went to Starbucks to write down what happened, something I do most weeks. [16] I ordered an iced chai latte and texted back and forth with my sister for a while, then located the graduate course I plan to take in the fall in the course catalog and noted the time. I started another “to-do” list for tonight, which had “What Happened on June 21, 2018?” at the top. [17] Then I went across the street and purchased the pair of running shoes I’d placed on hold last week because I’d wanted time to think about the decision before committing to the $93.75 investment. It started to rain.

    By the time I went for a run it was after 8:00p.m. and significantly cooler than it had been here for days. It was a chilly 75 degrees, or thereabouts. While running, I thought about my grandpa’s daily diaries. My maternal grandfather kept a daily diary for years. The first one began as a joint effort. He and my grandma commemorated the day of their wedding, June 2, 1956, with an inaugural diary entry. I wonder now, was the daily diary a wedding gift from someone? Perhaps my great Uncle Claire, who was a writer. [18] After a while, my grandma’s handwriting fades away, but my grandfather continued to record each day’s events for years on his own. Of course, finding an entry for 1958 or 1968 would be ideal (for a nice, round number), but I don’t have those diaries on hand. As far as I know, they’re located in my Aunt Laura’s basement. But what I do have is the actual diary from 1956.
         The details of their day on June 21, 1956 are in my grandfather’s squat handwriting, easy to tell apart from my grandmother’s neat, right-leaning script. The entry reads,
    We drove to New Providence last night to my folks, and got there near ten. We went into Eldora this morning, where I saw Dr. Nyquist. He said I was OK, and time would make me more peppy. Later, we went to Marshalltown and ordered another Hide Away bed from Mr. Cox, plus two chrome steel yellow cushioned kitchen chairs. We looked at washing machines on our way home. In the evening, we saw the Deep River Softball girls beaten by one run at Wellston.
         Added later are the prices of the items. $169 for the Hide Away bed. $6.66 for the chairs, though it’s unclear if that was per chair or altogether. These are the notes of two newlyweds preparing for their conjugal home.
         Twenty-nine years and 364 days later, on June 20, 1986, after a six-month battle with leukemia, my grandma died. My grandpa’s entry for that day reads,
    Elizabeth died at 9 p.m. today. She had been breathing heavily and had been on oxygen all day. She passed peacefully. I was holding one hand and Julie and Sheilah were holding the other hand. Connie and Colleen had been up earlier—also Laura, Mark and Alisa. [19]
         One year later, on June 21, 1987, I was exactly two months old my grandfather recorded his visit to the Quaker meeting house he regularly attended, and the genealogy work he accomplished that day. It’s disappointing to find that the entry for this day, 31 years ago, isn’t one of the many in which he comments on how proud he was to show me off at the courthouse, where he was the County Supervisor, or makes note of my overall health. Those are the types of entries I enjoy. [20]
         I didn’t remember to call my mom and ask how she was doing yesterday, on the anniversary of her mother’s death. I don’t always remember to do this, but, in recent years, I’ve been making an effort. I don’t know what it would have felt like to lose my mother at age twenty-one, and I don’t know what it would have meant to have a baby at twenty-two. I’m thirty-one now and I’m not sure I’ll know what it’s like to have a baby at all.
         On my run, I took a route I hadn’t taken for a while. It was a beautiful summer evening and for once not too hot, and I saw a total of one person in their yard. The only other people out of doors were the orange-vested energy company workers for Spire.

    For dinner, Adam and I had leftover hamburgers from a grill out earlier this week. Adam made basil-mayonaisse with basil from our porch box, but he over-blended it so that it was watery. It looked pretty disgusting, but I put it on my burger anyway. I had a brownie and ice-cream for dessert. The small white bowl I ate out of is still sitting next to me on the coffee table. It’s one of a set of three I scored a few months ago from Goodwill. Handcrafted Cabana porcelain. It’s the exact size of half a grapefruit. Adam has fallen asleep on the other couch with a book laid open on his chest. It looks like he’s about a quarter of the way through the latest Naomi Klein book; something about “NO” is all I can see in the title from here. I’ve stayed up two hours past my goal bedtime of ten p.m. to record all of this. Perhaps one day my descendants—if I have any, if I am not first infected by a brain-eating amoeba—will be as interested in what I had to say about today as I am in what my grandfather had to say about every day for the years he kept a daily record. Or perhaps not. As of five minutes ago, Central Standard Time, June 21, 2018, is over.

    1. I wish the word fiancé didn’t sound so pretentious. It’s not that I think all French words are pretentious, just that saying “fiancé,” which is what he is, instead of “boyfriend,” which is what he was before, seems to be making a big announcement. “Everyone! We’re going to get married!” But, this isn’t an announcement I want to make. We don’t have a date set and I’m not sure we ever will. I sort of pressured him into getting me a ring, I think, and now I don’t really like wearing it. I really don’t like the added hassle of having to clean it either, but it looks a lot nicer when I do.
    2. The Big Berkey system was a big (read: expensive) purchase that felt necessary when my fiancé, Adam, and I moved into the rental where we live two years ago. The tap water had—and still has—a dusty flavor and scent that was amplified when we boiled water for tea or carbonated it using the Soda Stream. Also, fancier salt is often marketed as being crucial to proper nasal irrigation, but I’ve relied on the Morton’s girl and her umbrella in the rain for years with no problems.

    When POPSUGAR editor Brinton Parker began planning her big day, we all knew it would be a celebration to remember. Her love of movie fandoms, sweet treats, and trendsetting beauty came together flawlessly when she tied the knot with her longtime partner, Christopher Botkin. The breathtaking ceremony took place on Treasure Island, San Francisco, with the cityscape as the background. Friends and family gathered to watch the pair say their vows - which included sweet Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings references, of course.

    "I cried so. freakin'. much. on the wedding day, but I'd say that the most emotional moment for me was when Christopher began reading the vows that he wrote," Brinton said. "He's typically not an outspoken romantic, but every word of his vows was so heartfelt and personal that it made me choke up."

    The reception followed at The Winery SF, where guests were treated to a visit from the Johnny Doughnuts truck and were surrounded by lush floral decor.

    "My florist, Flower Girl Em, absolutely blew us out of the water," Brinton said. "We opted for scattered bud vases instead of centerpieces as a cost-saving move, but Emily went above and beyond everything I could have ever expected. She incorporated fruits like fresh oranges into the head table arrangement, every single piece - from boutonnieres to bouquets - was flawless. Her creativity astounds me and she's one of my favorite people to follow on Instagram!"

    "Then, I'd say that our doughnut truck was a verrry close second favorite detail; who doesn't love carbs on wheels arriving halfway through a party? I've never gotten so many compliments about a dessert . . . several of the vegan guests said that their vegan options were the best doughnuts they've ever eaten."

    The happy evening came to a close when guests hit the dance floor and took some snaps in the gold sparkly photo booth. You could feel the love everyone had for the newlyweds as they enjoyed one of those most important days of their lives.

    "From the get-go, Christopher always told me that he didn't care how our wedding looked, as long as we got to celebrate with our loved ones and we walked away as husband and wife. If I had to guess his favorite moment, I would say it was tearing up the dance floor and partying with all of our friends and family - he danced so hard, he split his pants!"

    And that's what we call a successful wedding.

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


    Early in Warren Buffett’s life, his father failed to get hired at the family grocery store during the Great Depression. Without a job, and without any money after a run on the banks, the family of four ran up a tab of grocery bills at the store to put food on the table, and even then, his mother sometimes skipped meals. Leila Buffett, beset by stress and with a mind likely impacted by linotype fumes she inhaled as a child, would often berate her two small children.
    From this nadir, the family gradually achieved more secure financial footing. His father started a stock brokerage and eventually went on to become a four-term congressman. Young Warren started showing an aptitude for numbers. He became obsessed with timing everything, calculating odds, even tallying the frequency of the letters that appeared in the bible most frequently, according to The Snowball: Warren Buffett and the Business of Life. By age 15 he managed to earn thousands working his local paper route. The rest, as they say, is history.
    Warren Buffett
    Photographer: Daniel Acker/Bloomberg
    On Friday, the legendary investor, 87, was surpassed in wealth by 34-year-old Mark Zuckerberg. The gap was closed in part by Facebook’s surging stock—up 15 percent this year so far—and in part by Buffett’s large charitable cash outflows. Today, the three richest people in the world, Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates and Zuckerberg, have all made their fortunes in tech.
    Compared to Buffett and many of his contemporaries, Zuckerberg’s childhood was more banal. He grew up in Dobbs Ferry, a small middle-class suburb of New York, the son of a dentist and a psychiatrist. He started using his father’s computer at a young age, and showed an early facility for programming, before graduating from an elite prep school.
    Mark Zuckerberg in 2007.
    Photographer: Daniel Acker/Bloomberg
    Zuckerberg’s story is typical of the slate of newly minted technology billionaires in the ranks of the Bloomberg Billionaires Index. And there are a lot of them. With 64 technology businessmen and women on Bloomberg's list, which tracks the world’s 500 richest people, the industry has produced more billionaires than any other (unless you count inheritances—there’s a lot of inherited wealth on the list, too). This year alone, tech has created 11 new billionaires.
    But there's something missing from the foundational stories of this new group of self-made men (yes, they’re mostly men). Where earlier generations' formative experiences revolved around paper routes and pathos, today's prototypical founding story involves an upper-middle-class childhood, early access to a computer, and an elite education—even if that education was abandoned. Before he famously walked out of Harvard University, Zuckerberg created an instant messaging system for his dad's dental practice at age 12. At 15, Twitter's Jack Dorsey was dazzling his bosses during a programming internship. And Uber's Travis Kalanick was writing code by middle school.
    Jack Dorsey
    Photographer: David Paul Morris/Bloomberg
    The self-made man has always played a profound role in the American imagination. Horatio Alger wrote stories of plucky, lower-class strivers who made their way in the world by dint of honesty and hard work. Hollywood has fetishized the underdog since movies were invented. And for years, the business world offered real stories too.
    But the modern rise of the Harvard dropout (or New York University in Dorsey's case, or UCLA in Kalanick's case), complicates that story. Today's founders are long on brilliance, but short on hardship. It's difficult, after all, to become a computer prodigy without a computer. That dollop of privilege speaks to a larger trend in the American economy: For millions of low-income people, it's getting harder to build something from nothing. In order to drop out of Harvard, first you have to get in.
    Buffett, with a father who was a politician and investor, often jokes that despite the family’s temporary bout with poverty, he won the “ovarian lottery.” He would eventually attend Columbia Business School and study with renowned investor Benjamin Graham. But for many leaders of Buffett’s generation, dorm rooms weren’t a part of the origin story. Consider Bruton Smith, who until he stepped down as CEO of Speedway Motorsports Inc. in 2015 at age 88, was one of the oldest serving public company leaders. Smith grew up on a farm, never went to college, and once took a shotgun to a construction site to settle a labor dispute. Oil baron Harold Hamm, born in 1945 as the youngest of 13 children of Oklahoma sharecroppers, drilled his first oil well at age 25 (it eventually paid for college).  And then there's recently deceased casino and movie magnate Kirk Kerkorian, born in 1917, who faked documentation of a high school graduation in order to join the military as a pilot.
    In some ways, it's great to live in the age of the nerd. And it’s tough to mourn the decline of Wall Street-style corporate machismo. But a poor kid growing up today may find it much harder to emulate the life path of someone like Zuckerberg, who coded an instant messaging system before hitting puberty, than that of even Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein, who grew up in Brooklyn housing projects and at one point served concessions at Yankee Stadium to earn extra money.
    Statistically as well as anecdotally, true American rags-to-riches stories are getting rarer. Class mobility, as defined by the percentage of children who earn more than their parents, has been in a state of mostly uninterrupted decline since the 1940s. Economist Raj Chetty found that only about half of the children born in 1980 have surpassed their parents’ income. In 1940, that number exceeded 90 percent.
    Of course, most successful entrepreneurs have earnings that vastly outstrip their parents’. In fact, they outstrip the earnings of nearly every human in history. In by-now-familiar statistics, the rate of income growth at the top levels of earning in the U.S. have far outpaced growth at the bottom segments (in the 1980s, it was the other way around, according to research by Thomas Piketty, Emmanuel Saez and Gabriel Zucman). Last year Oxfam International found that more than 80 percent of earnings went to the top 1 percent of the world population.  
    That so many of today’s new billionaires mostly come comfortable backgrounds is emblematic of a broader concentrating of wealth in the U.S. According to recent Federal Reserve data, the median family's net worth had not recovered its pre-recession value by 2016, while the top 10 percent gained double digits since 2007.
    Of course, you can still find evidence of rough patches and plenty of hard work in the early childhoods of today's wealthiest tech luminaries. Elon Musk, 47, an immigrant from South Africa, came from wealth, but was bullied as a kid before moving to Canada alone at just 17, where he enrolled in Queens University and transferred to the University of Pennsylvania, before eventually dropping out of a Stanford University PhD program. Jeff Bezos, 54, was born when his mother was 16 years old, and was adopted by her second husband, a Cuban immigrant and an engineer. And Sergey Brin, 44, came to the U.S. as a six-year-old, when his parents traded the anti-Semitic backdrop of Moscow academia for a new life in the U.S.
    But even these founders, who all had at least one parent with a science background, stand in contrast to an earlier era. According to the Bloomberg Billionaire Index, the second-oldest self-made American billionaire is Amway’s Richard DeVos, born in 1926. DeVos was a boy when his father lost his job as an electrician during the Great Depression, and the family moved in with his grandparents. He remembered stuffing a baseball with fabric and tying it together because he and his friends couldn’t afford a new one. As a sophomore, he was labeled “not college material,” sent to trade school, and had to work to pay his way back into the local Christian high school.
    Ted Lerner, who at 92 is the oldest self-made man on the Bloomberg index, is the son of a clothing salesman from Palestine. He grew up in an immigrant community in Washington, and recalled to a local paper, “I remember chickens being plucked and koshered on Georgia Avenue.” Casino mogul Sheldon Adelson, 84, now a controversial figure in U.S. politics, grew up in a working-class Boston neighborhood as the son of a taxi driver. Eli Broad, born in 1933, is the son of a Lithuanian house painter, went on to become the only man to found two Fortune 500 companies in two different industries: housing and financial services.
    It is, of course, not the fault of tech's young luminaries that the economy has shifted toward technological skills. Even as it's boosted Americans’ standard of living, the rapid pace of innovation has made education an increasingly important factor in determining income, a trend that in turn has exacerbated rising inequality. Overall educational attainment in the U.S. is rising, but nearly 70 percent of the adult population has still never graduated from college. That's even though higher education has increasingly become a prerequisite for white-collar work. The college wage premium, or what bachelor’s degree holders make compared to high school graduates, has skyrocketed since the 1970s and now hovers at about 50 percent, near-record levels.
    The so-called "digital divide" between rich and poor households, has reinforced the gap between haves and have-nots. Despite the pervasiveness of personal computing, poor kids today are less likely to have access to the programs that could help them develop early coding genius. According to Pew Research Center data, 87 percent of households with an income of $75,000 or higher use broadband at home. But for households making less than $30,000, it's only 45 percent.
    That inequality of opportunity is rising is hardly a matter of debate. What's still unclear, though, is the eventual result. Besides barring the path for talented people of limited means, a widening chasm between the rich and everyone else also presents political problems. Witness mounting anger at tech companies in cities like San Francisco and Seattle. The Seattle city council voted to levy a punitive per-worker tax on Amazon and other large employers in response to the area's growing homelessness problem. Seattle officials relented, but tensions still simmer beneath the surface nationwide, threatening to boil over in unpredictable ways.
    And unlike yesterday's titans, the newest of generation billionaires don’t have histories likely to assuage popular resentment. The three youngest self-made billionaires on Bloomberg's index are all Facebook cofounders. Their story is legend: After Zuckerberg's auspicious beginnings in Dobbs Ferry, he created a hotness-ranking tool called Facemash before he and his friends dropped out to found Thefacebook.com. Just above them on the list in age is Sean Parker, now 38, who took up programming early and interned for future Zynga CEO Mark Pincus while he was still in high school.
    This is not a lamentation of the comfortable childhoods of corporate leaders. In some ways, the American myth of the up-from-nothing elite was always mostly imagined. The likelihood that a child today will rise from the lowest to the highest quintile of earnings, is less than 10 percent. That’s low compared to other rich countries, according to Chetty’s data, but it’s not much changed since the 1970s.
    The American Dream has always been a story we told ourselves, bolstered by the hardscrabble tales of men who rose from nothing to become magnates. Today, Zuckerberg is a moral leader—a family man, and a donor to noble causes. But those looking to follow in his footsteps will cast an eye back to his early days: To the comfortable Westchester upbringing, the fencing club captainship at an elite prep school, the insouciant Harvard days, and to Facemash. American youth may aspire to climb the same ladder. They’re likely to find it’s missing some rungs.

    Recording a thought’s fleeting trip through the brain

    UC Berkeley neuroscientists have tracked the progress of a thought through the brain, showing clearly how the prefrontal cortex at the front of the brain coordinates activity to help us act in response to a perception.

    Recording the electrical activity of neurons directly from the surface of the brain, the scientists found that for a simple task, such as repeating a word presented visually or aurally, the visual and auditory cortexes reacted first to perceive the word. The prefrontal cortex then kicked in to interpret the meaning, followed by activation of the motor cortex in preparation for a response. During the half-second between stimulus and response, the prefrontal cortex remained active to coordinate all the other brain areas.

    For a particularly hard task, like determining the antonym of a word, the brain required several seconds to respond, during which the prefrontal cortex recruited other areas of the brain, including presumably memory networks not actually visible. Only then did the prefrontal cortex hand off to the motor cortex to generate a spoken response. The quicker the brain’s handoff, the faster people responded.

    Interestingly, the researchers found that the brain began to prepare the motor areas to respond very early, during initial stimulus presentation, suggesting that we get ready to respond even before we know what the response will be.

    “This might explain why people sometimes say things before they think,” said Avgusta Shestyuk, a senior researcher in UC Berkeley’s Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute and lead author of a paper reporting the results in the current issue of Nature Human Behavior.

    The findings, including the key role played by the prefrontal cortex in coordinating all the activated regions of the brain, are in line with what neuroscientists have pieced together over the past decades from studies in monkeys and humans.

    “These very selective studies have found that the frontal cortex is the orchestrator, linking things together for a final output,” said co-author Robert Knight, a UC Berkeley professor of psychology and neuroscience and a professor of neurology and neurosurgery at UCSF. “Here we have eight different experiments, some where the patients have to talk and others where they have to push a button, where some are visual and others auditory, and all found a universal signature of activity centered in the prefrontal lobe that links perception and action. It’s the glue of cognition.”

    While other neuroscientists have used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and electroencephelography (EEG) to record activity in the thinking brain, the UC Berkeley scientists employed a much more precise technique, electrocorticograhy (ECoG), which records from several hundred electrodes placed on the brain surface and detects activity in the thin outer region, the cortex, where thinking occurs. ECoG provides better time resolution than fMRI and better spatial resolution than EEG, but requires access to epilepsy patients undergoing highly invasive surgery involving opening the skull to pinpoint the location of seizures.

    Clues from epilepsy patients

    The current study employed 16 epilepsy patients who agreed to participate in experiments while undergoing epilepsy surgery at UC San Francisco and California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco, Stanford University in Palo Alto and Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.

    “This is the first step in looking at how people think and how people come up with different decisions; how people basically behave,” said Shestyuk, who recorded from the first patient 10 years ago. “We are trying to look at that little window of time between when things happen in the environment and us behaving in response to it.”

    Once the electrodes were placed on the brains of each patient, Shestyuk and her colleagues conducted a series of eight tasks that included visual and auditory stimuli. The tasks ranged from simple, such as repeating a word or identifying the gender of a face or a voice, to complex, such as determining a facial emotion, uttering the antonym of a word or assessing whether an adjective describes the patient’s personality.

    During these tasks, the brain showed four different types of neural activity. Initially, sensory areas of the auditory and visual cortex activate to process audible or visual cues. Subsequently, areas primarily in the sensory and prefrontal cortices activate to extract the meaning of the stimulus. The prefrontal cortex is continuously active throughout these processes, coordinating input from different areas of the brain. Finally, the prefrontal cortex stands down as the motor cortex activates to generate a spoken response or an action, such as pushing a button.

    “This persistent activity, primarily seen in the prefrontal cortex, is a multitasking activity,” Shestyuk said. “fMRI studies often find that when a task gets progressively harder, we see more activity in the brain, and the prefrontal cortex in particular. Here, we are able to see that this is not because the neurons are working really, really hard and firing all the time, but rather, more areas of the cortex are getting recruited.”

    In sum, Knight said, “Sustained activity in the prefrontal cortex is what guides a perception into an action.”

              Venture investment topped $57 billion in the first half of this year — and the money will probably keep on flowing      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Travis VanderZanden

    • The amount of money flowing into venture-backed companies jumped to $57.5 billion in the first half of this year — up 50% from the same period a year earlier, according to a new report from PitchBook and the National Venture Capital Association.
    • The lion's share of the dollars flowed into software companies and those based on the West Coast.
    • Much of the boom is coming from nontraditional venture investors, such as private equity firms.


    For entrepreneurs looking to raise money for their tech startups, this year has been the best of times.

    Venture capital-backed firms raised a whopping $57.5 billion in the six months ended June 30, according to a new report from Pitchbook and the National Venture Capital Association. To put that in perspective, that's more than was invested in such firms in any full year between 2008 and 2013, and it's 50% more than was invested in the first half of last year. 

    "For an industry that has been characterized by capital availability over recent years, the first half of 2018 has only exacerbated feelings of excess," Pitchbook and the NVCA said in the report. The report continued: "To say capital availability is high would be putting the true state of the US VC industry lightly."

    But if you wanted to get some of that cool venture cash, your best bet was to be in the software business – and to be located on the West Coast. Software startups raked in $23.7 billion in venture investments in the first half of this year. That's about 41% of the total, and about even with the same period last year. They also accounted for about 42% of all venture deals in the first six months of this year.

    Some 62% of all the venture capital money invested — and 40% of the deals — in the most recent period went to West Coast based startups. In the same period last year, startups based in San Francisco, Seattle and other West Coast locations accounted for 55% of the money invested and 41% of the deals.

    Overall, the number of venture investments ticked up only slightly, from 3,917 in the first half of 2017 to 3,997 this year. But the size of those deals swelled. For example, the median seed-stage investment jumped from $1.6 million in the first half of last year to $2.1 million this year. Meanwhile, the median amount invested in Series B round jumped to $29.3 million from $24.3 million for all of last year.

    Interestingly, much of the money flowing into venture-backed startups isn't coming from traditional venture capital firms. In fact, about 63% of the total dollars invested in the first quarter came from private equity and other nontraditional sources.

    And it looks like the good times will continue to roll. Venture capitalists raised $20.2 billion in the first half of the year, up from $19.1 billion in the same period last year, putting the industry on track to top $30 billion in funds raised for the fifth year in a row.

    "We don’t believe that current trends will subside in the near term," PitchBook and the NVCA said in the report.

    The new funds flowing in are "adding dry powder to a market already awash with capital," they continued.

              San Francisco's tech boom is so expansive that the city's median home price rose by $205,000 in the first half of 2018, one of the biggest swells in its history      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    san francisco painted ladies city scape homes

    • San Francisco's median house price rose by $205,000 in the first half of 2018, as iterated in a mid-year report by real estate agency Paragon.
    • The price swell is one of the city's biggest in its history, sending the average home price in the city to a whopping $1.62 million.
    • There's a direct correlation between these price hikes and the tech industry's ever-expanding presence in the Silicon Valley region.

    San Francisco's median house price rose by $205,000 in the first half of 2018, according to a mid-year report by real estate agency Paragon. The swell is one of the city's biggest in its history.

    The rise in median home value now makes the average price for a house in the city a whopping $1.62 million, at a time when the average income of a San Franciscan household clocks in at $118,400, according to The East Bay Times.

    There's a direct correlation between these price hikes and the tech industry's ever-expanding presence in the Silicon Valley region in recent years. Tech behemoths like Google, Facebook and Apple operate out of the Bay Area and recruit a lofty volume of high-earning workers that need to find living quarters here.

    These workers' high salaries, combined with the city's already dwindled housing supply, have spawned an affordability crisis within the real estate market, jacking up home values to an astronomical degree.

    Override Mech City Brawl

    Modus Games y The Balance son las compañías encargadas de haber anunciado el desarrollo de 'Override: Mech City Brawl', el cual nos presentará un videojuego de luchas en escenarios en 3D en el que controlaremos a unos mechas de un gran tamaño.

    El título permitirá a los jugadores pilotar estas gigantescas máquinas que se diferenciarán unas de otras por sus diferentes estilos de juego, movimientos especiales y ataques definitivos. En total se podrá elegir entre 12 mechas distintos igual de grandes que un rascacielos, como bien podéis comprobar en el primer tráiler que ha salido a la luz.

    Override Mech City Brawl 02

    Como suele suceder en la series de este tipo, como los 'Power Rangers' o 'Evangelion', los combates transcurrirán en ciudades como Tokyo, Egipto, San Francisco o México en las que sus edificios se podrán destruir con los impactos de los golpes que se proporcionen. Además, el juego dispone de un modo historia para un solo jugador, un modo versus y hasta un modo cooperativo.

    En el caso de este último se podrán reunir hasta cuatro personas, cada una encargada de controlar las diferentes piezas del mecha, lo que tiene pinta de que acabará volviéndose un caos. También será posible customizar a los mechas modificando sus accesorios o su aspecto o incluso existirá la opción de que cada uno diseñe su propia máquina.

    Override: Mech City Brawl está siendo desarrollado para Xbox One, PlayStation 4 y PC y está previsto que salga a la venta el 4 de diciembre en formato físico y digital. En el caso de su edición física solo se distribuirá con la denominada Super Charged Mega Edition, en la que se incluirá un pase de temporada que dará acceso a cuatro mechas adicionales y 16 skins.

    No obstante, si tenéis ganas de participar en estos emocionantes combates, Modus Games ha comunicado que del 10 al 12 de agosto tendrá lugar una beta cerrada. Para apuntaros a ella solo tenéis que pulsar en el siguiente enlace.

He won the Lead Actor Tony, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle, and Theatre World Awards, becoming the only American actor in history to win all four for a Broadway debut. He sings lead vocals on the Platinum, Grammy Award-winning Jersey Boys original cast album. He made his West End debut playing Valli at London's Piccadilly Theatre and re-created the role onscreen in the Warner Brothers film adaptation. He played Marius in Les Misérables at the Hollywood Bowl. He has played at New York's Café Carlyle, Carnegie Hall, the White House, Lincoln Center, Radio City Music Hall, Feinstein's at the Nikko in San Francisco, Yankee Stadium, Dodger Stadium, McCarter Theatre Center, New York's Town Hall, and with the National Symphony Orchestra conducted by Marvin Hamlisch.

    My guest for episode #220 is somebody I've wanted to interview for a long time, Dr. Robert Wachter, one of the leading voices in the modern patient safety movement. He's most recently author of a brand-new book The Digital Doctor: Hope, Hype, and Harm at the Dawn of Medicine's Computer Age. His book was excerpted in this New York Times Op-Ed piece, "Why Health Care Tech Is Still So Bad." In this episode, we cover topics including: How Bob got into the patient safety field Of all of the estimates of patient harm and death caused by medical errors, which does he find most valid? His perspectives on the interface between Lean principles and practices and the modern patient safety movement What were some of the pros and cons of the $30 billion in federal government incentives for EMR/EHR adoption? Is it fair to say that EHR systems solve some patient safety problems while solving others? Some of the new waste introduced by new "meaningful use" regulations The story of a preventable medication error that harmed a child - a combination of technology problems, human factors, and bad process Finding the balance between "system problems" and personal accountability (see this article) Disclosure: I received an advance copy of The Digital Doctor from the publisher. I highly recommend the book for its balanced presentation of the promise, successes, and challenges of healthcare IT. The book discusses why electronic medical records haven't been adopted more quickly, why government incentives were introduced, and EMR/EHR systems are not the panacea that some had promised. Previously, Dr. Wachter has written books on patient safety (that I've read and recommend) including Understanding Patient Safety and Internal Bleeding. He received one of the 2004 John M. Eisenberg Awards, the nation's top honor in patient safety and quality. He has been selected as one of the 50 most influential physician-executives in the U.S. by Modern Healthcare magazine for the past seven years, the only academic physician to achieve this distinction. I was honored when Dr. Wachter recently interviewed me about Lean and patient safety for his AHRQ "Web M&M" series. Dr. Wachter is Professor and Associate Chairman of the Department of Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, where he holds the Lynne and Marc Benioff Endowed Chair in Hospital Medicine. He is also Chief of the Division of Hospital Medicine, and Chief of the Medical Service at UCSF Medical Center. He has published 250 articles and 6 books in the fields of quality, safety, and health policy. He coined the term "hospitalist" in a 1996 New England Journal of Medicine article and is past-president of the Society of Hospital Medicine. He is generally considered the academic leader of the hospitalist movement, the fastest growing specialty in the history of modern medicine.

              Santa Clara votes on STV      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Ranked choice voting had one of its biggest months ever this past June, with two successful RCV elections -- San Francisco’s closely contested mayoral contest, and Maine’s first use of RCV in its statewide partisan primary elections -- along with a strong win in Maine’s referendum to keep RCV in place for future primary and congressional elections. But another, more complicated story, also took place in June: Voters in Santa Clara, California voted on the single transferable vote (STV) form of ranked choice voting.

    Better Elections for Santa Clara faced a very tough campaign promoting Measure A, facing real, funded opposition and antipathy from the local media. The opponents and the local news outlets were driven mostly by a belief that the city should be settling a lawsuit brought under the California Voting Rights Act. Although Measure A narrowly lost, gaining 48 percent of the vote, in many ways the campaign was a success, and that success deserves to be highlighted.

    HH2-edited.pngMeasure A would have moved Santa Clara from a city council consisting of six members elected at-large using numbered posts, a winner-take-all method, to the single-transferable vote form of ranked choice voting in two multi-winner districts, each electing three. Santa Clara would have divided into a northern and southern district, with half the city electing its three councilmembers every two years. It also would have applied single-winner “instant runoff” ranked choice voting to all other city offices, including the mayor.

    Before Measure A had been developed, Santa Clara was sued under the California Voting Rights Act, arguing that its winner-take-all system illegally diluted the votes of its Asian American voters. Such lawsuits have a history of pushing cities into switching from at-large elections to single-winner districts. However, Santa Clara is a particularly well-integrated city - it is very difficult to draw a single-winner district map that includes a district where Asian American eligible voters are more than half of the voter pool (enabling them to elect a candidate of choice), and even harder to draw a district where Asian Americans were make up a majority of those who actually vote, given that the Asian American population of Santa Clara has a pattern of lower turnout than the general population.

    To address the vote dilution, the city put together a charter commission made up of Santa Clara residents. They considered various options and recommended the approach that ultimately became Measure A. FairVote’s own analysis of Measure A - after its district map was announced - demonstrated that Measure A would be a success for including Santa Clara’s diverse communities in city elections. We estimated that it would reliably allow election of three candidates of choice of people of color rather than none.

    Early polling showed that the campaign had an uphill climb ahead of it. March 7-9, Public Policy Polling surveyed just over 300 voters on Measure A and other questions. Voters were nearly evenly split three ways - those leaning yes with 34 percent, those leaning no with 31 percent, and those who were not sure with 36 percent. Conventional wisdom in campaigns suggests that undecided voters tend to wind up voting against ballot measures. Given that, the campaign deserves credit for bringing Santa Clara to such a close results.

    The poll showed a similar level of support for the idea of electing its city council from single-winner districts. About 40 percent opposed the idea, about 38 percent supported it, and the remaining 23 percent were undecided. Ranked choice voting on its own was more popular: 52 percent supported it and 40 percent opposed it.

    Notably, there was one idea on which Santa Clarans were not at all undecided: “Some people would like to have the city council pick a councilmember to be mayor rather than have voters elect the mayor directly. Do you think this would be a very good thing, a somewhat good thing, a somewhat bad thing or a very bad thing.” Here was the breakdown:

    Very good 4%

    Somewhat good 7%

    Somewhat bad 23%

    Very bad 56%

    Not sure 9%

    Clearly, the idea of losing their separately elected mayor is very unpopular with Santa Clarans, with only 11 percent thinking it was a good idea and a strong majority seeing it as a very bad idea.

    These results for different ideas for ways to change Santa Clara elections ultimately point to one clear fact: Santa Clarans disagree with each other as to how Santa Clara elections should be conducted. Some voters like the current system. Some like the approach taken in Measure A. Some prefer districts.

    Perhaps the biggest challenge Measure A faced is that it had to take on every alternative to Measure A. If a voter preferred districts, they were likely to vote ‘no.’ If a voter preferred to stick with the current system, they were likely to vote ‘no.’ If a voter had some issue with the specific district line that Measure A would adopt, they were likely to vote ‘no.’ Again, the campaign deserves a lot of credit for getting as close to a win as they did.

    There is some evidence that the benefits of Measure A for communities of color was effectively communicated to those communities within Santa Clara. A precinct-by-precinct analysis of the Measure A vote (embedded below) came to the following conclusions:

    1. Precincts with high populations of people of color drove support for Measure A
    2. The three precincts with the highest proportion of Asian-American registered voters supported Measure A at much higher levels than the city overall.
    3. Northern Santa Clara (which has the highest Asian American populations) voted yes on Measure A by 55 percent to 45 percent.
    4. There is a strong negative correlation between a precinct’s proportion of white registered voters and the precinct’s support for Measure A.

    https://fairvote.app.box.com/embed/s/qti8hmtq1eagmmqrak0nqlzt0uam8t528005500

    We are disappointed that Santa Clara did not adopt Measure A. However, FairVote recently filed to participate in the California Voting Rights Act case against the city. We plan to introduce these facts and others to convince the court that something like the approach taken in Measure A would be a good remedy to Santa Clara’s vote dilution. Santa Clarans deserve fair representation.

              Argentina: Consagran Buenos Aires al Sagrado Corazón de Jesús      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   


    BUENOS AIRES, 10 Jul. 18 (ACI Prensa).- En el marco del Te Deum del 9 de julio por el 202° aniversario de la Declaración de la Independencia Nacional de Argentina, el jefe de gobierno de la ciudad de Buenos Aires, Horacio Rodríguez Larreta, consagró su vida, su gestión y la ciudad al Sagrado Corazón de Jesús.

    “Quiero presentarme ante Dios como jefe de gobierno, consagrando mi vida, mi gestión y la Ciudad de Buenos Aires al cuidado del Sagrado Corazón de Jesús, lo hago bajo la protección del Inmaculado Corazón de la Virgen, su Madre, cuyo nombre lleva esta Ciudad”, manifestó Rodríguez en la ceremonia llevada a cabo en la Catedral Metropolitana.

    Ante el Arzobispo de Buenos Aires y Primado de Argentina, Cardenal Mario Aurelio Poli, y numerosos fieles presentes en la catedral, el jefe de gobierno de la ciudad capital prometió “construir una sociedad justa, pacífica, basada en el respeto y la solidaridad”.

    Además, pidió a Dios por todos los habitantes de Buenos Aires y quienes pasan por la ciudad, especialmente por los enfermos y marginados, para que “sepamos hacer por ellos todo lo que está a nuestro alcance, no olvidándonos mirar sus rostros cada día y ver en ellos la razón de nuestro trabajo”.

    Como acto de consagración, Rodríguez y todos los fieles presentes elevaron la oración por la paz atribuida a San Francisco de Asís.

    La Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires es la capital de Argentina y uno de los 24 estados que conforman el país. Con San Martín de Tours como patrono, es la urbe con mayor población a nivel nacional y el cuarto estado más poblado.

    Fue fundada el 3 de febrero de 1536 por el conquistador español Pedro de Mendoza, quien llamó al lugar “Real de Nuestra Señora Santa María del Buen Ayre”, en cumplimiento de la promesa que hizo a la Patrona de los Navegantes y de la Cofradía de los Mareantes de Triana a la que pertenecía.

    En su refundación el 11 de junio de 1580, Juan de Garay la nombró “Ciudad de la Trinidad”, sin embargo los habitantes siguieron llamándola Buenos Aires. En 1996 la Constitución de la Ciudad le dio oficialmente el nombre de “Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires”.

              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.

    45.00 USD

    I've teamed up with the beautifully talented San Francisco Bay area photographer, Shannon Clark of www.sscphotography.etsy.com! Her photo images are magical, colorful and vibrantly delicious. Together, we're thrilled to bring you a dazzling photo locket collection that will adorn your necks with brilliance and make you swoon!

    This vibrant and colorful peacock feather photo image is printed on Kodak Endura's gorgeous metallic paper. The colors are exceptionally vivid and the image has a unique three-dimensional quality. The paper has a lovely pearlescent sheen and it's simply stunning in it's brass frame. This striking "Bohemian" photograph is mounted on an antique oxidized brass locket pendant which hangs on a brass rolo chain. It's sealed with a glass-like coating for protection and shine and the chain is finished with a lobster clasp. Length-16 inches but can be lengthened to 18 or 28 inches per your request!

    Inside the locket, there are 2 empty recessed areas for you to mount your favorite pictures of your own choosing. These openings measure 3/4 of an inch around. The outside diameter of the locket measures 27mm (just over 1 inch).

    This would make a fabulous gift for that special someone!

    To see more of Shannon's lovely photography, please visit her shop www.sscphotography.etsy.com

    My photo lockets are proudly made in the USA! Enjoy!

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Victor Caratini hit an RBI double during a decisive seventh inning, helping the Chicago Cubs back Jose Quintana in a close game and beat the San Francisco Giants 2-0 on Tuesday night.

    A night after losing 2-1 in 11 innings despite a strong start from Kyle Hendricks, the Cubs had enough offense for Quintana (8-6).

              Monsanto 'Bullied Scientists' and Hid Weedkiller Cancer Risk, Lawyer Tells Court      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

    As ill California man’s landmark case begins, attorney attacks Roundup maker’s response to researchers’ findings

    Monsanto has long worked to “bully scientists” and suppress evidence of the cancer risks of its popular weedkiller, a lawyer argued on Monday in a landmark lawsuit against the global chemical corporation.

    “Monsanto has specifically gone out of its way to bully … and to fight independent researchers,” said the attorney Brent Wisner, who presented internal Monsanto emails that he said showed how the agrochemical company rejected critical research and expert warnings over the years while pursuing and helping to write favorable analyses of their products. “They fought science.”

    Wisner, who spoke inside a crowded San Francisco courtroom, is representing DeWayne Johnson, known also as Lee, a California man whose cancer has spread through his body. The father of three and former school groundskeeper, who doctors say may have just months to live, is the first person to take Monsanto to trial over allegations that the chemical sold under the Roundup brand is linked to cancer.

    Preparing food—and letting others in our communities cook for us—is how we become good citizens who engage with the communities around us.

    My arms hurt as I walked through Brooklyn on a cold December night. I was carrying a 10-pound, party-size tray of macaroni and cheese with three cheeses, cooked to just a touch beyond al dente, with a breadcrumb topping. I was headed to a community potluck and had spent the better part of that morning making (read: babying) a mornay sauce, cooking the pasta, and baking the mixture in the oven. As I walked the six blocks from the subway station to the venue where the meeting was being held, my arms started to shake. I started to wonder why I didn’t just pick up a bag of chips and a jar of dip and call it a day, but then I remembered the excited messages I received when I told my fellow event-goers that I would be bringing macaroni and cheese to our potluck. It was my way of making my friends and community members happy on a cold night and my way of providing comfort as we talked about the future of our community.

    Why do we cook? First, we cook to sustain ourselves and our families. But in the current culture of food-as-art-form, we also cook to express ourselves. Cooking may seem like an act of self-preservation, an act that is both self-serving and necessary, but if you look beyond the immediate and beyond the narrow definition of what cooking is, you can see that cooking is and has always been an act of resistance.

    Sometimes what we don’t cook says more than what we do cook. For chef Sean Sherman, fry bread is a dish that he will not make. In his cookbook, The Sioux Chef’s Indigenous Kitchen, he talks about fry bread, viewed as a sacrosanct part of indigenous cuisine, and explains why this seemingly simple dish is more than the sum of its parts. “I’m often asked why we don’t have fry bread on the menu or offer a recipe for fry bread in this book,” he writes. “It originated nearly 150 years ago when the U.S. government forced our ancestors from the homelands they farmed, foraged, and hunted, and the waters they fished.” For Sherman and for many indigenous communities, fry bread is an edible reminder of the injustices of colonialism and the loss of the ability to explore and develop indigenous cuisine using ingredients from the region. “They lost control of their food and were made to rely on government-issued commodities—canned meat, white flour, sugar, and lard—all lacking nutritive value,” Sherman explains. “Controlling food is a means of controlling power.”

    Every time we step to our stoves to make a meal we’re engaging with the society around us. Each ingredient that we use, every technique, every spice tells a story about our access, our privilege, our heritage, and our culture. The foods and dishes we consume are all part of larger forces that impact our lives. Our appetites and what we crave are the result of our place in the world at that time.

    Three cookbooks—Feed the Resistance, The Sioux Chef’s Indigenous Kitchen, and The Immigrant Cookbook—show how the act of cooking can be a platform for social justice and social action.

    For Sherman, creating dishes using ingredients that were available to his ancestors is how he reclaims Native American foodways and supports the indigenous community. In his book, he explains how the work that he does now is about continuing to explore these foodways and create dishes using ingredients that are native to Minnesota. Instead of fry bread, Sherman creates corn cakes with braised bison or smoked duck because these ingredients represent indigenous cuisine and its reliance on the land and ingredients in a more holistic way.

    “They taste of a time when we, as a people, were healthy and strong, and of the promise that we can stand up to the foods that have destroyed our health, the forces that have compromised our culture,” he writes. “And our corn cakes are easier to make and far tastier than any fry bread.”

    Reclaiming a culture’s cuisine is a clear act of using food in a way to create social change. But home cooking can create change in smaller communities and ways. Feed the Resistance is technically a cookbook, but it’s also a collection of essays from chefs, writers, nonprofit founders, and others who are busy using their stoves in their resisting. Author Julia Turshen writes cookbooks and recently created Equity at the Table, a database for women and nonbinary people of color in the food world. She’s also an activist and intends for the book to be used as a way to support local activism. The recipes are divided into sections for activists who need to feed a crowd or bring portable snacks to a bake sale, or if someone just needs to make a quick meal for herself. They are accompanied by an introduction or essay by the creator of the recipe about what this specific dish means to them and what they are actively “resisting” when they make it. “Homemade food is an act of self-care that will serve you while you’re resisting,” Turshen writes above a simple recipe for roasted broccoli and quinoa with cashew dressing. “It’s important to take care of yourself so you can better take care of the world.”

    Feed the Resistance can feel like a diary at times and offers readers a peek into the kitchens of people all over the United States who are actively working in the social justice space. In the essay “How Food Can Be a Platform for Activism,” Shakirah Simley, co-founder and organizer of Nourish/Resist in San Francisco, talks about using food to discuss police brutality with her brother and the function that food has when it comes to activism. “In my work, we seek to nourish so that we may resist,” she writes. In this way, it isn’t just the food that is important, but the act of eating together that creates a platform where activism can happen.

    In activism, and in food, there’s also the question of who gets the mic and who gets to tell their story or share their ideas. In The Immigrant Cookbook the recipes are courtesy of chefs and writers from all over the world who have made America home. Well-known chefs like Daniel Boulud, José Andrés, and Nina Compton share recipes alongside chefs who are less known, but each one represents the story of a person or family coming to this country—and bringing their heritage and foodways with them.

    Cultures and history come to the stove with us each time we cook, and every recipe in The Immigrant Cookbook is proof of that. Immigrants bring their food and recipes to this country and add to our shared American table. We may think of “American” food as apple pies and hot dogs and hamburgers, but these recipes, with their substitutions and roots in cuisines from other countries, are just as American. American food is a mixture of indigenous cuisine and food from other places adapted to incorporate American ingredients. Cooking these dishes is a way of embracing all of the “recipes that make America great,” as the book says.

    When I think about cooking at my stove, or going grocery shopping, I often think about the feeling that I want to have when I sit down to eat. Am I trying to make something healthy so I feel good? Am I trying to comfort myse
