Someone please tell Costco that good things really don't have to come to an end, because they seem to think otherwise. 

As reported by the Seattle Times, the wholesale giant will be retiring the Polish dog from their food court menus across the country and replaced with healthier options — and people are livid. 

SEE ALSO: Costco food court items, ranked

Thankfully, you'll still be able to enjoy the cheap delicacies of an all-beef hot dog or chicken bake while you wait in line or peruse the warehouse. But in addition to those classic food items, customers will also be able to buy organic burgers and vegan options, including a meatless plant-based salad called "Al Pastor Salad," and açai fruit bowls.  Read more...

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

Hi!

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

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

Best regards
Błażej


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

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

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

I'm considering creating an item for [url=https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/148661905/dominations-road-to-civilization[/url], but as per above, not sure there's a deal for group orders, or how to find it.


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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hi Hugh, Dean Marks here (from Warner Bros./Time Warner until 2015 and then MPAA from 2015-2017 and now on my own as a consultant and sometimes adjunct Professor).  I have been meaning to write to you for a long time to tell you how much I enjoy your blog.  But the entry below on Dale Chihuly's studio pushed me over the edge.  I have always loved his work and visited the Museum and garden at the base of the Space Needle a couple of months ago when I was up in Seattle for INTA. I had no idea that his studio was in George Pocock's former boathouse.  How fascinating and how great that you received an inside tour!  I loved the "Boys in the Boat" and it is one of my favorite books from recent years.  Aside from the wonderful underdog story and all the interesting personalities, including George, it gave such an insightful view to the Depression era and the daily struggles of individuals.  And was the writing compelling!  Even though I knew before reading the first page that the Seattle boys won the gold medal, I found myself literally cheering them out loud "Go, Go!" when reading the passages about the various races. Where are you living these days?  Back in Canada?  I am still in L.A. and enjoying having my garden patio as my office.  Do you ever get down to L.A.?  If so, it would be great to see you.  I know the Copyright Society meeting was in Toronto in June, but I couldn't attend because I was teaching a course at the Munich IP Law Center. In any event Hugh, it was always such a pleasure to work with you.  You are the embodiment of "gentleman and scholar."  Hope all is well. Best regards,Dean

          14226: Starbucks To Stop Sucking.      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

CNN reported Starbucks plans to eliminate plastic straws in its stores by 2020. And Starbucks hopes to eliminate discriminating against Blacks in its stores by 3020.

Starbucks is eliminating plastic straws from all stores

By Danielle Wiener-Bronner

Starbucks is going strawless.

The coffee company announced Monday that it will phase out plastic straws from all of its stores by 2020.

The changes will help Starbucks (SBUX) eliminate more than 1 billion plastic straws per year, the company said.

Plastic straws contribute to ocean pollution and pose a danger to marine life. Some governments have begun banning them.

To eliminate straws, Starbucks is transitioning from the flat, plastic lids that require them, to ones that feature a raised lip you can drink from. The new designs have drawn comparisons to an adult “sippy cup.”

Frappuccino drinks will still be served with dome lids, but with straws made from paper or compostable plastic. Coffee drinkers who prefer straws for other beverages can request the new eco-friendly versions.

Some Starbucks drinks, like cold brew with cold foam, are already served in cups with strawless lids.

Starbucks will begin rolling out the new lids for all drinks this fall, starting with stores in Vancouver, Canada, and Seattle.

In a statement, CEO Kevin Johnson called the move away from plastic straws a “significant milestone” in the company’s sustainability efforts.

Starbucks had already committed $10 million to help develop recyclable, compostable cups for hot drinks.

Other companies have been ditching plastic straws as bans on the item have gone into place.

Last month, McDonald’s (MCD) said that it would start switching to paper straws in the United Kingdom and Ireland in September. The transition will be complete in 2019, the company said.

The announcement from McDonald’s followed an April proposal by the UK government to ban plastic straws in the country. In May, the European Union also suggested a ban on some plastic items, including straws.

In the United States, local governments are already putting similar restrictions into place. Seattle’s ban on plastic straws and utensils went into effect last week. Oakland and Berkeley, California, and other cities have also banned the use of disposable straws.

The UK government said that 1 million birds and more than 100,000 sea mammals die each year from eating and getting tangled in plastic waste.

“Plastic straws that end up in our oceans have a devastating effect on species,” said Erin Simon, director of sustainability research & development and material science at World Wildlife Fund, US, in a statement. “We hope others will follow in [Starbucks’] footsteps.”

Starbucks said that it is the largest food and beverage retailer to have promised to get rid of plastic straws.

Nicholas Mallos, director of Ocean Conservancy’s Trash Free Seas program, called Starbucks’ decision a “shining example” of how companies can help fight ocean pollution.

“With eight million metric tons of plastic entering the ocean every year, we cannot afford to let industry sit on the sidelines,” he said in a statement.

On the Trail of Big Cats with wildlife photographer Steve Winter

November 7, 2018

Go around the world in search of big cats with award-winning photographer Steve Winter. A determined explorer, Winter will lead you from Asian jungles where resilient tiger populations persist, to the Himalaya, home of the rare snow leopard. Follow him into the rainforests of Latin America to view the elusive jaguar-and to Hollywood in pursuit of the American cougar. He'll share both dangerous and lighter moments: from getting stuck in quicksand to mishaps with remote-controlled cameras. Coauthor of the National Geographic book Tigers Forever, Winter's mission is to share the beauty of big cats while working to save them.

Ocean Soul with underwater photographer Brian Skerry

February 20, 2019

Voyage across the oceans with one of National Geographic's most seasoned photographers and discover a vast, hidden world beneath the waves. Using his camera to communicate, Brian Skerry has spent more than 10,000 hours underwater telling the oceans' stories. His images celebrate the mystery of the depths and offer portraits of creatures so intimate they sometimes appear to have been shot in a studio. Skerry dives eight months of the year, often in extreme conditions beneath Arctic ice or in predator-infested waters, and has even lived at the bottom of the sea to get close to his subjects. This past fall National Geographic Books published Ocean Soul, a landmark retrospective of Skerry's photographs. In the book and this presentation, Skerry takes us from the glacial waters of the North Atlantic, where harp seals face off with commercial hunters, to the balmy central Pacific, where he photographed damaged coral ecosystems rebuilding themselves. On stage, Skerry is a passionate spokesman for the oceans he loves to photograph. His riveting presentations to audiences at TED, Harvard, and London's Royal Geographic Society inspire reverence for the marine realm and offer hope for protecting the vitality of the world's oceans.

More recently, Virts appeared in the 2016 IMAX film ?A Beautiful Planet, ? a breathtaking portrait of Earth from space that features stunning footage-much of it shot by Virts while aboard (and outside) the International Space Station-of our magnificent blue planet and humanity's impact on it. His photography, which provides incredible aerial views of Earth and the vast space that surrounds it, is featured in a new National Geographic book, ?VIEW FROM ABOVE: An Astronaut Photographs the World, which is available wherever books are sold.

              Re: New Seattle Law Requires Gun Owners to Lock Up Firearms or Face Fines      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Almost every mass shooting that has happened in the last few years was due entirely to gun owners giving or making their guns and ammunition freely available and accessible to violent people.

    So I'm not going to bother to respond to the tired and abusive metaphors about cars and knives etc. when those aren't at all relevant to a discussion about guns, which are a single-purpose tool designed solely to kill.

    Even if it is a small step in the right direction, I'm just glad someone in some part of American government at some level is working towards some kind of consequences and liability for the thousands of irresponsible and reckless gun owners out there who don't care if innocent people die.

    I am a relative of the suspect, he is sick with a serious mental illness- he is not a criminal or a monster. There is predisposition of schizophrenia in the family, and as I understand, as of lately he’d been frequently using cannabis “concentrates” as it is legal in Washington State. Reece is in a safe place and will hopefully be taken to another relatives stable home in a different state soon. Thank you RSN neighbor for your genuine care and concern for Reece; the very sad and unfortunate situation is being monitored and handled properly.

    I'm the co-owner of this car, and just wanted to provide an update: Car was recovered by Tukwila PD on July 4th, and impounded. My wife and I went to check it out and it was pretty trashed - steering column ripped open (hotwired), rear plate missing, front plate bent, giant dent in passenger side, and tools and snack wrappers littered all over the floor. Not elegant thieves.  But found a court document in the trunk accusing someone of Robbery in the 2nd degree (lol), turned that over to the police. Thanks to everyone who kept an eye out!

              SI Yanks Notebook: Ford and Swanson rehab a great experience for team      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    While the Triple-A Scranton Wilkes-Barre Railriders ended the first half of their season on a winning note, two of their key players, first baseman Mike Ford and right-hander Erik Swanson, were down in Short-Season Staten Island as part of their rehab assignments.

    At the Short-Season level, any experience that a player can get from someone who has been at that level is valuable. Manager Lino Diaz talked about the impact that Ford and Swanson had in the meetings by giving their advice to the players:

    “Those guys have been great here. They have offered a lot of insight to our young guys. Ford goes to our meetings and brings his experience. That’s invaluable. Swanson is the same way with our pitchers. They are good guys. It’s been a tremendous experience for the guys that are here.”

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ruINz6FqmRQ

    Ford was in Staten Island recovering from an oblique injury, which is something he never had in his career. Meanwhile, Swanson is coming back from a groin injury. Both players discussed the toughest part of the rehab process as they near returning to Scranton for the second half that begins on Thursday.

    “Mentally, it was just getting over the hump and letting it go a little bit in the box. The first two games, I couldn’t let it go even without the pain or the tightness. Just getting over the challenge and letting it go,” replied Ford.

    Being on the DL is never fun. I have been on it for three weeks. Kind of doing the normal treatment every day. Not being able to play is the worst part of it for me. I did all of the things I needed to do with my trainer up in Scranton to get me back healthy and in the right position to get back up there.”, said Swanson.

    When a player gets to go on a rehab assignment to an affiliate they have played at twice before (in Ford’s case), it allows them to help the other players in Short-Season that are just learning the game. Both players mentioned some of the keys are to enjoy the game and to stay patient:

    “It’s been fun over the last couple of days to sit with a handful of guys and have them ask me different questions.”, said Swanson. “My biggest thing is just to stick with it. A lot of the guys are still learning things and getting advice from different coaches and coordinators. Take that information in and translate it to the game. Got to be patient. My biggest thing is to do the right things with it when given the opportunity.”

    “Don’t get too caught up in numbers. Just play your game and enjoy it as much as you can. It becomes a job at this point, but if you can keep it as a game, that’s the biggest thing,” replied Ford.

    When you look at Ford’s season so far, he’s hitting .219 with eight home runs and 27 RBIs. He came back to the organization after being taken in the Rule V Draft by the Seattle Mariners and getting some valuable experience that helped him think he can play that level.

    “It’s helped in so many ways. For me, the biggest thing coming into camp is I know I can play there. Mentally, I think I can. That’s the biggest step for a player. I learned so much from the guys over there.”

    [caption id="attachment_33998" align="alignnone" width="640"] Erik Swanson did not walk a batter in any of his two starts with the Staten Island Yankees. (Robert M. Pimpsner/Pinstriped Prospects)[/caption]

    For Swanson, the 24-year-old is having a breakout year with the Yankees organization. After having a 0.44 ERA in seven games with Double-A Trenton, he was promoted to Scranton, where he has 29 strikeouts to five walks in four starts (5.11 ERA). So, what has been the toughest adjustment for Swanson?

    “Moving up, guys have more of an approach. Guys stick to their gameplan, and you have to stick to your gameplan. You have to do a lot of different scouting report looking at the opponents you are facing.”

    As Scranton Wilkes-Barre heads into the second half, the Railriders are 46-41 and are 5.5 games behind the Lehigh Valley IronPigs for first place in the North Division (two games back in the Wild Card). Both players talked about their goals as they head back to Triple-A:

    “Stay healthy. I want to finish the year healthy. Finish out the year strong. Keep building off what I had going into this rehab stint," said Swanson.

    “Trying to get back to myself. Lay off some pitches I have been swinging at a little bit, get my walks back up, and keep the power where it is. Start driving the ball." said Ford. 

    The unique part about this rehab assignment for both players is that they got to go through this process together with the same team. Both players had great things to say about each other as teammates and how they go about their work. First, here’s Ford on Swanson:

    "It’s been great having him here. Just a friendly face around the clubhouse. He’s a great teammate up in Scranton. I love when he pitches. He works quick, gets the easy outs, and makes our lives easier.”

    "It’s been great having him here,” said Swanson about Ford. "Just a friendly face around the clubhouse. He’s a great teammate up in Scranton. I love when he pitches. He works quick, gets the easy outs, and makes our lives easier.”

    As Ford and Swanson’s rehab stints come to an end, that enters the door for some of the top picks from this year’s MLB First-Year Player Draft. In the last week, Staten Island has added catcher Josh Breaux (Second Round), outfielder Brandon Lockridge (Fifth Round), and right-hander Rodney Hutchison Jr. (Sixth Round).

    It happens on a daily basis in the minor leagues where the roster is constantly changing. Diaz talked about that process how new guys enter a team as the season continues:

    When they come in here, we usually have what we call an orientation with us to get them acclimated with our team. We tell them the things we do. They will be integrated. They were in Florida already, so they kind of know how we work. They are pretty much ready to go into competition. I think it will be a very smooth transition for them.”

    Finally, Staten Island just finished a series where they took two out of three games against a Brooklyn Cyclones squad that had Noah Syndergaard and Jason Vargas on the mound (rehab assignments). This season, the two teams have played six games decided by three runs or less and that experience can be valuable for a young team, according to Diaz:

    “Anytime you play a close game; you are competing. You have to really play well. You can’t afford mistakes; You have to be aggressive. It’s a good thing, and we can benefit from that. It’s a good thing for the young guys.”

    Starbucks, citing ocean threat, is ditching plastic straws

    Starbucks will eliminate plastic straws from all of its locations within two years, the coffee chain announced Monday, becoming the largest food and beverage company to do so as calls for businesses and cities to cut waste grow louder.

    While the straws account for a small percentage of the pollution that ends up in the ocean, they've become a flashpoint because they're seen as an easy way to reduce waste.

    "There are several of these single-use items the public is realizing, hey, we don't actually need these," said Denise Hardesty, a scientist with Australia's Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation who studies plastic pollution.

    A week after its hometown of Seattle banned plastic drinking straws and utensils, Starbucks said Monday that by 2020, it will use straws made from biodegradable materials such as paper and specially designed lids. The company already offers alternative straws in Seattle.

     biodegradable /bàɪoʊdəɡréɪdəbəl/ を取り上げます。接頭辞のbioから、生物に関連することばであることがわかります。『ライトハウス英和辞典』(第5版 研究社)で調べると「微生物の作用で無害物質に分解する、生分解性の」とありました。

     LDOCEには “materials, chemicals etc that are biodegradable are changed naturally by bacteria into substances that do not harm the environment” と定義されています。

     degrade /dɪgréɪd/ は「…の品位(価値、評価)を落とす」という意味の他に、化学では「(物質)を分解する」という意味を表します。(『ライトハウス英和辞典』)これにbioとableが組み合わさることで上記の意味になると考えられます。(aqua)

              Mike Farris - "Silver & Stone"      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Coming off of an incredible GRAMMY win for 2015’s SHINE FOR ALL THE PEOPLE (Best Roots Gospel album), Nashville rocker Mike Farris keeps it earthy and personal on SILVER & STONE, out September 7 on Compass Records. The title refers to his wife's ring, and the album is a celebration of their 23 years of marriage and her steadfastness in sticking by him through his years struggling with addiction and alcoholism. Now sober for 7 years, Farris has the energy and conviction of a man saved, a stack of anecdotes and life experiences that would make most people’s heads spin, and a soulful vocal delivery reminiscent of Sam Cooke or Otis ReddingSILVER & STONE isn’t a “gospel” album by any means, but Farris still takes us to church on these 12 engaging tracks, including a cover of Bill Withers’ “Hope She’ll be Happier.” 

    Produced at Compass Sound Studio (AKA “Hillbilly Central” – the birthplace of Outlaw Country) in Nashville by Compass Records co-founder, Garry WestSILVER & STONE finds Farris imbuing his songs with a vibey, lighthearted feel, returning to his roots as a rocker and soul singer. The album weaves through the traditions of American music the way that Tennessee born and bred Farris has done expertly throughout his 25-year career, starting with his major label band, Screamin’ Cheetah Wheelies.

    Sonically, SILVER & STONE’s warm organic sound and stellar playing recalls the cream of the Stax Records’ catalog. The album opener and Farris original, "Tennessee Girl,” seguing into “Are You Lonely For Me Baby?” and “Can I Get a Witness,” are loose and groove-driven, hitting all the right notes of soul,  and  blues with an effortlessness that shows what a natural Farris is for this sound. 

    The studio band includes famed “Memphis Boy” Gene Chrisman (Dusty Springfield, Elvis Presley, Dan Auerbach) sharing drum duties with Derrek Phillips (Robben Ford, Hank Williams Jr.), keyboardists Reese Wynans (Joe Bonamassa, Double Trouble) and long-time Farris collaborator Paul Brown (Waterboys, Ann Peebles), guitarists Doug Lancio (Patty Griffin, John Hiatt), Rob McNelly (Delbert McClinton) and George Marinelli (Bonnie Raitt) with Steve Mackey (Wallflowers, Delbert McClinton) and producer West splitting bass duties. Farris is quick to credit the crew in the band for putting their modern spin on classic grooves and progressions.  The band was given just enough structure so they could add their own flavor. Among the album's many standout moments is Joe Bonamassa's searing solo on “Movin’ Me” (Bonamassa became a fan and friend while opening for Screamin’ Cheetah Wheelies in the 90's).

    Melding the spiritual and the earthly, Farris says the album is about “reaching something better without actually trying.” This sentiment drives the Farris-penned composition, “Golden Wings”, written for his son, Christian, at “a pivotal point in his life, with so many options in front of him. That feeling of ‘Where am I supposed to be?’” 

    Farris told Rolling Stone Country. "It's one of those songs that just flowed out after I did an exercise where you write a letter to your younger self. It has a dual message— something to say to a young person who is looking for answers, but also a reminder to myself to be free and open to the possibilities of life."

    Another Farris composition, “When Mavis Sings,” hits equally close to his heart. Over his years as a performer, he’s had the privilege of becoming close to legendary singer and gospel icon Mavis Staples.  He says, “Mavis is everything you want your heroes to be.” Julie Farris elaborates, “She calls him ‘Mikey’.”  The song is actually a history lesson on Mavis' life, as it's completely comprised of literal tidbits of her life.  

    “I wanted to explore that upbringing, being in that neighborhood with all of these luminaries and absorbing that music,” he says. “It was exciting to watch all the pieces come together and fit lyrically.”

    The album closes with “I’ll Come Running Back To You,” an acknowledgment of the surrender intrinsic in love by accepting the kind of love that conquers shame and self-doubt.  Where the narrator of this song is losing his identity in service of unrequited love, for Farris, it’s quite the opposite—it’s relinquishing a vision of identity that needs to be served by attention or self-medication and instead takes root and grows through love.

    “It’s the most essential, yet most difficult, part of faith,” Farris says.  “Remembering to open up and allow the universe to have its way with you and your gifts. Be open and free to the possibilities of life.”

    "With a supersized voice filled with the electricity of Saturday night and the godly grace of Sunday mornings ." — Rolling Stone Country

    “Mike Farris has enough heart, soul, and power to light up a city. He mixes up the elements and turns them into something new, beautiful, and uniquely his own.” — Buddy Miller

     "Country and gospel music is in dire need of some pure heartfelt soul right now.  He's like a secret weapon — he's loaded with soul."  — Marty Stuart (Rolling Stone Country)

              Electricity will cost more in Seattle next year      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Electric bills are going up in Seattle. The Seattle City Council has approved a plan that will drive up rates for Seattle City Light customers an average of 4.5 percent a year for the next six years, starting with a 5.8 percent jump in 2019. A typical residential customer’s monthly bill, now $65, would rise $3.77 next year, in 2019, assuming the customer does not lower their electricity consumption in response to higher prices or for other reasons, according to City Light forecasts. Two factors are fueling the rate hikes: conservation and cost overruns. City Light's success at getting customers to save energy means each kilowatt-hour sold has to recoup a greater share of the utility’s fixed costs. Mismanaged megaprojects have driven up rates as well. A new substation on Denny Way, aimed at keeping the lights on in the South Lake Union neighborhood surrounding Amazon’s rapidly growing headquarters, was supposed to cost $89 million. It wound up costing $210 million. A new billing system

              What are the real tradeoffs of the straw ban?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Seattle's straw ban has coincided with hometown coffee chain Starbucks' decision to phase out all single-use plastic straws by 2020. The new sippy cup-esque lid is recyclable - but what it's not is accessible to folks with disabilities who rely on single use plastic straws.
              Starbucks to Stop Using Plastic Straws      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    The company will replace plastic straws with new, strawless drink lids.

    Starbucks Coffee Company announced it will eliminate single-use plastic straws from its more than 28,000 company operated and licensed stores by making a strawless lid or alternative-material straw option available. Starbucks anticipates the move will eliminate more than one billion plastic straws per year from Starbucks stores.

    Starbucks has designed, developed and manufactured a strawless lid, which will become the standard for all iced coffee, tea and espresso beverages. The lid is currently available in more than 8,000 stores in both the U.S. and Canada for select beverages including Starbucks Draft Nitro and Cold Foam. The lid is also being piloted for Nitro beverages in additional markets including China, Japan, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. In addition, Starbucks will begin offering straws made from alternative materials—including paper or compostable plastic—for Frappuccino blended beverages and by request for customers who prefer or need a straw.

    “For our partners and customers, this is a significant milestone to achieve our global aspiration of sustainable coffee, served to our customers in more sustainable ways,” said Kevin Johnson, president and CEO of Starbucks, in a statement.

    Customers in Seattle and Vancouver will be the first to see the strawless lids implemented, starting this fall, with phased rollouts within both the U.S. and Canada to follow in FY19. A global rollout of the strawless lid will follow, beginning in Europe where strawless lids will arrive in select stores in France and the Netherlands, as well as in the U.K. just as the market expands its 5p paper cup charge to 950 stores, to further promote reusability.

    “Starbucks’ goal to eliminate plastic straws by 2020 from their stores globally represents the company’s forward thinking in tackling the material waste challenge in totality,” said Erin Simon, director of sustainability research and development and material science at World Wildlife Fund, U.S., in a statement. “Plastic straws that end up in our oceans have a devastating effect on species. As we partner with Starbucks in waste reduction initiatives such as Next Gen Consortium Cup Challenge and WWF’s Cascading Materials Vision, we hope others will follow in their footsteps.”

    Starbucks has a 30-year track record of focusing on sustainability across all aspects of its business, including achieving 99 percent ethically sourced coffee. In addition to this announcement, Starbucks has previously committed $10 million to develop and help bring to market a fully recyclable and compostable hot cup, in partnership with Closed Loop Partners, through the NextGen Cup Consortium and Challenge.

    As Johnson outlined in his presentation to investors at the Oppenheimer Consumer Conference in June, the company is focused on adapting to rapidly changing consumer trends with cold beverages accounting for more than 50 percent of Starbucks' beverage mix in the U.S., up from 37 percent just five years ago. The movement to eliminate single-use plastic straws has been gaining tremendous momentum globally, with consumers showing increased concern for the greater issue of waste, of which straws is just a part. That’s why Starbucks recognizes the work ahead to build on its long history in sustainability, which includes:

    • Achieving 99 percent ethically sourced coffee.
    • Trialing a 5p paper cup charge in London, which will be expanded to 950 stores in the U.K. later this month, to promote reusability.
    • Offering a discount to any customer who brings a reusable cup or tumbler to company-owned stores around the world.
    • Starbucks cups contain 10 percent post-consumer fiber, introduced in 2006 and a number the company expects to double by 2022.
    • Building more than 1,500 LEED-certified (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) stores in 20 markets, including all 50 states and Puerto Rico, the largest green retailer in its sector.
    • Starbucks purchases Renewable Energy Certificates, currently covering 62 percent of electricity usage globally, with a goal of reaching 100 percent globally by 2020.
    • Expansion of the FoodShare program that donates unsold food to food banks around the country.

    J/122E Joy Ride sailing Vic-Maui RaceJ/122E JOYRIDE Amongst The Leaders!
    (Victoria, British Columbia, Canada)- The Victoria to Maui International Yacht Race, hosted by the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club and the Lahaina Yacht Club, got underway July 1st. The 2,308nm course goes from Victoria, British Columbia to Maui, Hawaii.

    The lone J/Crew sailing the race is the gorgeous J/122E JOYRIDE from Seattle, WA skippered by her owner- John Murkowski. They are one of the most successful offshore racing teams in the Pacific Northwest.

    Day 1- The Start
    And they’re off! At 10:00 am Pacific Time, the 2018 Vic-Maui fleet sailed through the start line outside Victoria Harbour, tacking into a stiff, building westerly breeze.

    In the days leading up to the start, the sun broke out just in time for the fleet Send-off Party that rocked the Wharf Street docks on June 29. Transient orcas (killer whales) patrolled the entrance to Victoria’s Harbour on a damp June 30.

    Today, July 1st (Canada Day) dawned sunny, breezy, and warm (if not exactly tropical).  The Race Committee vessel hung on a tenuous anchor off Brotchie Ledge, while the spectator boat fleet circled and a drone flew overhead.  The VIP spectator boat Midnight Sun elegantly patrolled the spectator boat zone.  

    After the start, the J/122E JOY RIDE pressed hard going west into the Straits of Juan de Fuca.

    Eight hours into the race, the fleet was working its way towards the big left turn at Cape Flattery, and the open Pacific Ocean, where the adventure truly begins.  Weather systems including the North Pacific High, and a developing Low pressure trough, lie ahead in wait.

    Cape Flattery, WADay 2- Past Cape Flattery and Onto the Rhumb Line
    After a great run down Strait of Juan de Fuca, most of the fleet rounded Cape Flattery before the sun set and got to see a sight that most people never get to. Cape Flattery is the very northwest corner of the lower 48 states and a major landmark. But, it is very remote by land and very few sailors venture out into the open Pacific.

    After rounding Cape Flattery, the fleet starts sailing down the rhumb line, more or less, depending on breeze strength and direction around the notoriously wobbly Pacific High. Roll Call happens at 1200 hrs Hawaiian Time (1500 hrs Pacific Time). Today the fleet is relatively close together about 160 miles offshore of Ocean Park, Washington on Willapa Bay.

    The weather pattern is setting up for boats to ride a path between the Pacific High hovering to the northwest of its usual location, and a Low pressure zone along the Washington Coast that caused the cool weather and rain before the start. If this weather pattern holds, it may result in a short, sweet, fast ride to Hawaii. But, the only thing constant about weather is change and the sailors will need to put the beautiful sight of Cape Flattery behind them and focus on figuring out what their weather crystal ball is telling them.

    The match race between the two leading boats in Racing 1 is a tight one. Firefly and the J/122E JOY RIDE are taking turns with the lead. At roll call, it was Firefly with a 10nm lead. But, leads are fleeting, and it remains to be determined which has the right weather track.

    Weather strategy- VicMaui RaceDay 2- Weather strategy update
    Here is a quick primer on weather systems in the Northeast Pacific Ocean, between Cape Flattery and Hawaii (courtesy of David Sutcliffe).

    1) The dominant summer pattern in the Northeast Pacific Ocean is usually the North Pacific High.  Winds blow in a clockwise rotation around the High that is usually centered somewhere North of Hawaii and West of the US West Coast, say about 40N – 150W.  The High usually spreads over a very large area of the ocean and wobbles around, expanding and contracting, usually without the center moving too far.  Sunny and warm!

    2) Temperate zone low pressure weather systems travel from West to East in the temperate zone which technically is between about 23 degrees and 66 degrees North latitude.  Put another way, this zone is roughly between the Southern tip of Baja Mexico and the Bering Strait off Alaska.  In summer, the lows usually travel in the higher or more Northern areas of this zone, and are usually deflected above the High.  Winds blow in a counter clockwise direction around the lows.  Cloudy and rainy!

    3) In summer, the High usually deflects Low pressure systems up into the Gulf of Alaska, keeping nice summer conditions over the West Coast of North America.  When a high and a low system press against each other, there is usually a squeeze zone with stronger winds between the two systems.  Breezy and lumpy!

    4) Trade winds usually blow from the Northeast or East between about 30 degrees and 5 degrees North latitude.  This band is roughly between the USA-Mexico border and just North of the Equator.  Trade winds usually blow steadily, but El Nino and La Nina cycles affect them, and there will usually be some squalls.  The bottom of the High and the North edge of the trade winds blend together over the ocean.  Champagne sailing!

    5) Tropical Low pressure systems usually develop off the coast of Central America, and some strengthen to tropical storm or hurricane strength.  As with other lows, the wind blows counter clockwise around these lows.  These systems usually move Northwest to the open ocean area West of Baja Mexico before weakening and dissipating far from land.  Sometimes, they curve North and East to make landfall in Mexico, and occasionally they travel West towards or all the way to Hawaii.  Pay attention!

    So it’s all very simple, or maybe not!  A dozen mentions of "usually".  Now, imagine being the navigator onboard an ocean racing boat, sleep-deprived, peering at a laptop screen below-deck at “oh-dark-hundred” (0200 hrs local time) while the boat rolls, pitches and heaves.  Your information is limited to weather forecasts and observations that can be obtained over a very low-bandwidth and sometimes expensive communications link using either marine radio or satellite systems.  Nothing is certain, and reality often doesn’t look like the textbook said it would.  The rest of the crew each have their own opinions (of course!), and then there are the armchair quarterbacks back home on dry land, cozy, warm and dry, sipping their coffees.  Which way to go?  What to worry about?  How best to get to Hawaii safely and fast? One eye to weather!

    Day 3- Weather update
    Ocean weather, never a dry topic, is getting more interesting - we have a High, we have a Low, which way to go, don’t you know?   "Green eggs and ham, Sam I am" (Dr Seuss, of course).

    The North Pacific High is established and centered at about 43N 155W. It’s strong – about 1036mb – which is good, and about 600-800nm in diameter. There is a Low developing about 500nm West of Vancouver Island.  A squeeze zone should develop between the High and the Low.  Interesting!

    Tue Jul 3, 0800PDT
    The High is forecast to drift West while the Low is forecast to move SE and should be affecting the fleet from about Tuesday evening (tonight) through to Thursday morning.  Most boats should see sustained wind speeds in the 15-25 knot range, while some may see up to 30 knots, bordering on gale force.  Wind angles will change as the Low crosses the track, leading to a flurry of sail changes, and once settled the angles should be behind the beam and very favorable for fast sailing. Hopefully, fast!

    The fleet is currently sailing very close to the rhumb line, the shortest route to Hawaii.  Shortest, but not necessarily the fastest.  The High is likely to move farther West than usual, and combined with the Low it will be very attractive for the fleet to sail West of the rhumb line. Might be a risky move!

    VicMaui Race trackerWed Jul 4, 1600PDT
    This is not the textbook route to Hawaii!  The risk of being West of the rhumb line is getting swallowed up into the middle of the High if/when it comes back to its usual position.  There is little to no wind in the middle of a High.  On the other hand, trying to go East of the rhumbline means beating into the Low and possible light and variable winds when it dissipates.  So, the navigators will be thinking this routing decision out carefully.  And, there is always the possibility, or probability, that the actual weather will be different from the expected weather.  A conservative strategy might be to sail on the favorable side of the Low, stay as close to the rhumb line as practical, sail less distance, stay in the squeeze breeze, and take less risk of getting becalmed.  Sounds easy!

    Beyond the next few days and the passage of the Low, the trade winds ahead are looking good.  Off to the southeast, there is some tropical system activity to keep an eye on, with TS Emilia reportedly dissipated and TS/Hurricane Fabio strengthening and forecast to dissipate before affecting the Vic-Maui fleet’s probable track to Hawaii.    

    Day 3- Who Stole the Wind?
    After a day and half of blast reaching in conditions best described as “not martini weather”, the fleet has hit the wall. A Low pressure zone (described above) moved over the fleet, substantially altering the weather and putting the brakes on the wind and boat speed.

    The relief from turbulent seas and stress on the boat is welcome. One boat reports that everyone is eating again and, for a lucky few, the daily constitutional has resumed. But, having to fight their way through a region of relative calm is not.

    At Roll Call, the boats are generally about 270 miles west of Tillamook, Oregon.  The leaders in Racing 1 have slowed from 8 kts to 5 kts and the boats in Racing 2 who are 40 miles behind have put the brakes on slowing to less than 2 kts. Ouch!

    In Racing 1, Murkowski's J/122E JOY RIDE sits in second just 16nm back. The boats in Racing 2 are essentially in a dead-heat with all within a few miles of each other.

    The next trick will be who is best positioned to get the wind first as the Low pressure system moves toward the east and the prospect of wind filling in behind it. Will that be Firefly who are positioned a bit to the east, or will it be JOY RIDE and the other Division 2 boats positioned well to the west of the rhumb line. And for the armchair sailors taking bets, it would be wise to consider that multiple winning navigator Brad Baker is calling the weather shots on Firefly.

    The over-arching concern is what happens next with the experienced veterans knowing that the fastest route to Maui is not usually the straight line.

    Oh and did we mention Hurricane Fabio? Fabio (who makes up these names?) is churning away well south of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and is forecast to dissipate well before the fleet arrives. But, big Low pressure systems coming from the south usually disrupt the trade winds.

    Whatever happens, the navigators and weather dudes aboard the boats are going to earn their keep this year.

    Day 4- Three Big Things to Think About
    This is not a textbook year!  The weather situation for this Vic-Maui is developing into a true ocean racer’s challenge, where seemingly small decisions and a few miles one way or the other early in the race could make for big gains and losses.  That doesn’t mean it’s all on the navigators, who do have their work seriously cut out for them, as it’s also on the whole team who will have to sail the boat very well and work hard with sail changes, trim and transitions to get ahead or stay ahead. Here are three scenarios:

    1. Wednesday & Thursday
    The near term weather is all about getting past the Low that is currently (0900 PDT) centered about 42N 133W.
    - All of the boats appear to be going over the Low, varying distances West of the rhumb line.
    - There is a squeeze zone with strong winds, possibly to gale force, predicted.  Careful!
    - Leaders Firefly and JOY RIDE appear to be splitting this morning, with Firefly making a move further West and JOY RIDE staying the course.  With over twenty miles of lateral separation, and the passage of the Low to be threaded, the risk/reward is likely to be significant for both boats.  If one does a better job of passing the Low, they could stretch that into a very significant lead for the next stage of the race.
    - The Low may drift North, back across the fleet’s track, potentially catching the tail-runners in lighter, variable winds.  Sailing fast, now, is especially important for these boats.

    2. Thursday & Friday
    After navigating the Low, the teams will move on to sailing around the High and setting up for crossing the ridge which typically extends to the SE from the center of the High.  The models show a significant “plateau” developing on that ridge, and winds would typically be much lighter in such a feature.  Once again, teams will have to evaluate the risk/return on miles sailed vs. wind speed/angle, and decide where to go to avoid the plateau and to stay in good breeze.  Having parked on a similar plateau (making just 65 miles in 24 hours) in 2006, and had boats pass us on both sides (ouch!), I am going to watch this potential trap with great interest.

    3. Saturday
    The fleet should still be sailing around the High that should be centered about 40N 165W.  It is predicted to continue to be strong at about 1036mb.  One strategy could be to sail an isobar contour line around the high, say at about 1026-1028mb, to stay away from the center, sail in good pressure, and be closer to the rhumb line.  All the while not getting stuck on any “flat” spots.  Lead boats should be looking ahead to curve around the bottom right hand shoulder of the high and set up for calling the port gybe lay line to Maui.  Calling a layline from 800 to 1,000nm out!

    Beyond the One-Two-Three scenarios above, the trade winds ahead are looking good.  Champagne sailing ahead!  Off to the Southeast, there is some tropical system activity to keep an eye on, with TS Emilia reportedly dissipated and TS/Hurricane Fabio forecast to peak and then dissipate without significantly affecting the Vic-Maui fleet’s probable track to Hawaii.   

    Going out on the proverbial limb, I would say the first finishers could arrive in Maui on July 12 or 13.  Or not.  Time will tell.

              Strangers Welcome Strangers      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    When my husband and I moved to Seattle to be near his sister, we didn’t know where we would live or work. A local church helped us find a place: a rental house with many bedrooms. We could live in one bedroom, and rent the others to international students. For the next three years, we were strangers welcoming strangers: sharing our home and meals with people from all over the world. We and our housemates welcomed dozens of international students in our home every Friday night for Bible study, too.

    God’s people know what it means to be far from home. For several hundred years, the Israelites were literal foreigners—and slaves—in Egypt. In Leviticus 19, alongside familiar instructions like “Respect your father and mother” and “Do not steal” (vv. 3, 11), God reminded His people to empathetically care for foreigners, because they knew what it was like to be a foreigner and afraid (vv. 33–34).

    While not all of us as followers of God today have experienced literal exile, we all know how it feels to be “foreigners” on earth (1 Peter 2:11)—people who feel like outsiders because our ultimate allegiance is to a heavenly kingdom. We are called to create a community of hospitality—strangers welcoming strangers into God’s family. The hospitable welcome my husband and I experienced in Seattle taught us to extend welcome to others—and this is at the heart of being the family of God (Romans 12:13).

    TheatreWorks Silicon Valley kicks off its 2018/19 season with Hold These Truths by Jeanne Sakata, an inspiring true story following Gordon Hirabayashi, a Japanese-American student who fought internment to a relocation camp during World War II. This Northern California premiere celebrates the human spirit as it chronicles Hirabayashi's journey from college in Seattle all the way to the Supreme Court, and eventually to a Presidential Medal of Freedom. Directed by Lisa Rothe, with Joel de la Fuente starring as Hirabayashi, Hold These Truths shares the story of a young man who passionately defends his Constitutional rights against an unexpected adversary: his own country. It will be presented July 11-August 5, 2018 (press opening: July 14) at the Lucie Stern Theatre, 1305 Middlefield Rd., Palo Alto. For tickets ($40-$100) and more information the public may visit TheatreWorks.org or call (650) 463-1960.

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

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

              Passenger Overboard From Seven Seas Mariner      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    A cruise passenger reportedly went overboard early this morning from the Seven Seas Mariner

    The cruise ship was returning, eventually, to Vancouver from a cruise to ports in Alaska. The ship was sailing to Victoria on the 10th day of an 11-day Alaska cruise which began in Vancouver on June 30th.  The cruise ship apparently first realized that the passenger had gone overboard when the ship was just north of Cape Flattery, at the northwestern tip of Washington state’s Olympic Peninsula.

    The captain of the cruise ship reportedly told the Coast Guard that video footage showed a passenger jumping into the sea from an eighth-deck balcony at 4:15 a.m.  AIS data shows that the cruise ship Man Overboard Seven Seas Mariner Cruisehas turned around and has sailed to the northwest apparently in search for the overboard passenger.

    Shortly after releasing information about how the passenger went overboard, the Coast Guard in the Pacific Northwest district in the tweeted:

    "In previous post, the word "jump" was used, however we have NO indication of why the individual went overboard. Investigation will help determine what happened. Again, we have NO CLEAR info on what lead to him going overboard; crews actively searching at this time."

    In this case, the Coast Guard has at least accurately reported that the passenger went overboard earlier this morning.  In the last overboard cruise ship case, the Coast Guard erroneously reported that a crew member was seen going overboard from the Norwegian Getaway at 3:20 PM (which is when NCL finally realized that he was missing from the ship) when he actually went into the water at least 12 hours earlier. 

    The Seattle Times reports that the 73 year-old man’s wife "was awakened around 4:30 a.m. Tuesday by “a breeze coming from the balcony door cracked open” and discovered her husband missing, the Coast Guard said in one of several early-morning tweets about the rescue effort." It is less than clear if and when the guest's wife reported her husband missing to the ship's crew. 

    This case is another example of a cruise ship where apparently no automatic man overboard system was installed. Such a system would immediately trigger an alarm in the bridge when someone goes over the railings and then track the person in the water through state-of-the-art infrared and radar technology. Without such a system, the ship has to look through CCTV film to see if it sheds light on if and when a passenger or crew member went overboard. The result is a delayed response and a huge search grid to be searched by Coast Guard aircraft and vessels.

    According to cruise expert Professor Ross Klein, 314 people have gone overboard since 2000. 

    Update: Unfortunately, according to KOMO News the passenger was found, unconscious. He was flown to a Port Angeles hospital where he was pronounced dead.

              Surprisingly Good Wines Can Be Found at Seattle Gas Stations      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    by Charles Mudede

    gettyimages-497156341_mag.jpg

    It's the most incredible miracle in the Bible: Jesus turns water into wine during a wedding in Cana, a dusty and sunny place in Galilee where he performed his first "signs." And his very first sign would prove to be his best.

    Its distinction has nothing to do with the miracle itself. Save for one thing, turning water into wine could not compete with, say, the resurrection of the dead, such as the daughter of Jairus (Jesus tells her father that she's not dead, but sleeping), or the curse of death, like the unfortunate fig tree mentioned in the gospels of Mark and Matthew (Jesus was hungry, he saw a fig tree, he walked to it, found it had no fruit, and cursed it, causing it to wither immediately).

    My Year of Rest And Relaxation is good bad fun. by Rich Smith

    Sophia Coppola would be proud.
    Sophia Coppola would be proud. Moshfegh reads at Elliott Bay Books this Friday at 7:00 p.m. Penguin Press

    Last week my barista asked what I was reading, and I told her I was reading a novel by Ottessa Moshfegh called My Year of Rest and Relaxation.

    "Sounds privileged," the barista said, looking at me like I was wearing Melania's green jacket.

    My reply—a quick summary of the book—didn't do me any favors. "It's about a beautiful young woman with a large inheritance who locks herself up in her well-appointed NYC apartment for a year and takes a bunch of prescription pills in an attempt to sleep away her emotional problems," I said, as I signed for my coffee.

    The barista rolled her eyes, said she'd be sure to check it out, and dismissed me before I could tell her how Moshfegh hides a dimly glowing ball of genuine humanitarianism beneath a thick crust of black humor and Grade-A cynicism—enough genuine humanitarianism that maybe even a moralizing barista would like it.

    Moshfegh's ironic title might turn off Seattleites who don't want to read anything that isn't a protest sign. And even if they do deign to read the first hundred pages, their rolled eyes might stay rolled.

    The story's told from the perspective of a laconic, depressed white woman in the middle of an existential crisis. When she's not tearing down her friend Reva (who works on Wall Street), skewering the world of contemporary visual art, or lying to her drug dealer/psychiatrist, she's leveraging every ounce of her privilege to "hibernate" for a year, a selfish and absurd goal she knows is selfish and absurd. Even if you didn't care to read a book from the perspective of such a character, you'd be forgiven for skipping yet another fucking novel about the particular charms and indignities of living in Manhattan, no matter how much it critiques the genre.

    But you'd also miss out on a lot of extremely good writing, some of the funniest dialogue I've read in a while, descriptions of characters so brutal and accurate they're actually loving. And, of course, you'd be missing the whole point of the book—or one of them, at least.

    You're supposed to dislike the normie characters and the trust fund hipster at the center of the story. Then you're supposed to realize, along with the narrator, that even normies and trust fund hipsters possess rich emotional interiors, that you are, in some ways, deep down, or even right on top, a normie and/or a trust fund hipster, and that your neuroses and your obsession with our own reflection in the pond prevent you from seeing yourself in others, which is the root of your cruelty.

    You're also supposed to laugh a lot about the narrator's fixations (Whoopi Goldberg, terrible mass market movies, bodega food), admire her general lazy brazenness, and nod your head at her excellent implied critiques of consumerism. And I think you're supposed to ultimately see her attempt to void herself from the universe as a metaphor for the level of selflessness required to deal with the unknown without freaking out about it.

    The book's cynical pleasures begin to feel tiresome about 1/3 of the way in, but right when they do Moshfegh makes you very aware of the particular year the narrator has chosen to sleep through. It's late 2000. And then, if you're an idiot like me and didn't see this coming until 1/3 through, you think, “Oh my god 9/11 is going to happen in this book."

    This realization introduces a tension that keeps you reading, if only to figure out how the catastrophe figures in the story. Will the narrator's sleeping beauty routine save her from her self-imposed imprisonment, or does someone so steeped in her own grief and privilege need something as serious as a terrorist attack to wake her up?

    I'm not 100 percent sure Moshfegh sticks the landing. If it were a short story, I think she would have. The book is 280 pages of hilariously mean, misanthropic language and then maybe 5 pages of the opposite of that. If it were 20 pages of the former and the same number of pages as the latter, I think she'd have said all she said and just as powerfully. That said, I really enjoyed reading those 280 pages. So, forget the landing. Embrace the routine.

              Free Will Astrology      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    July 11–17 by Rob Brezsny

    ARIES (March 21–April 19): Your key theme right now is growth. Let's dig in and analyze its nuances. (1) Not all growth is good for you. It may stretch you too far, too fast—beyond your capacity to integrate and use it. (2) Some growth that is good for you doesn't feel good to you. It might force you to transcend comforts that are making you stagnant, and that can be painful. (3) Some growth that's good for you may meet resistance from people close to you. They might prefer you to remain just as you are, and may even experience your growth as a problem. (4) Some growth that isn't particularly good for you may feel pretty good. For instance, you could enjoy working to improve a capacity or skill that is irrelevant to your long-term goals. (5) Some growth is good for you in some ways and not so good in other ways. You have to decide if the trade-off is worth it.

    TAURUS (April 20–May 20): You can't sing with someone else's mouth, Taurus. You can't sit down and settle into a commanding new power spot with someone else's butt. Capisce? I also want to tell you that it's best if you don't try to dream with someone else's heart, nor should you imagine you can fine-tune your relationship with yourself by pushing someone else to change. But here's an odd fact: You can enhance your possibility for success by harnessing or borrowing or basking in other people's luck. Especially in the coming weeks.

    GEMINI (May 21–June 20): You wouldn't attempt to cure a case of hiccups by repeatedly smacking your head against a wall, right? You wouldn't use an anti-tank rocket launcher to eliminate the mosquito buzzing around your room, and you wouldn't set your friend's hair on fire as a punishment for arriving late to your rendezvous at the cafe. So don't overreact to a minor tweak of fate, my dear Gemini. Don't overmedicate a tiny disturbance. Be happy for any opportunity you get to learn patience, practice tolerance, and thrive on imperfections.

    CANCER (June 21–July 22): I pay tribute to your dizzying courage, you wise fool. I stage-whisper "Congratulations!" as you slip away from your hypnotic routine and wander out to the edge of mysterious joy. With a crazy grin of encouragement and my fist pressed against my chest, I salute your efforts to transcend your past. I praise and exalt you for demonstrating that freedom is never permanent but must be reclaimed and reinvented on a regular basis. I cheer you on as you avoid every temptation to repeat yourself, demean yourself, and chain yourself.

    LEO (July 23–Aug 22): I'm feeling a bit helpless as I watch you messing with that bad but good stuff that is so wrong but right for you. I am rendered equally inert as I observe you playing with the strong but weak stuff that's interesting but probably irrelevant. I squirm and moan as I monitor the classy but trashy influence that's angling for your attention, and the supposedly fast-moving process that's creeping along so slowly, and the seemingly obvious secret that would offer you a much better lesson if only you would see it for the chewy riddle that it is. What should I do about this predicament? Maybe the only assistance I can offer is to describe to you what I see.

    VIRGO (Aug 23–Sept 22): Psychologist Paul Ekman has compiled an extensive atlas of how emotions are revealed in our faces. "Smiles are probably the most underrated facial expressions," he has written, "much more complicated than most people realize. There are dozens of smiles, each differing in appearance and in the message expressed." I bring this to your attention, Virgo, because your assignment in the coming weeks—should you choose to accept it—is to explore your entire repertoire of smiles. I'm confident that life will conspire to help you carry out this task. More than at any time since your birthday in 2015, this is the Smiling Season for you.

    LIBRA (Sept 23–Oct 22): Lucky vibes are coalescing in your vicinity. Scouts and recruiters are hovering. Helpers, fairy godmothers, and future playmates are growing restless waiting for you to ask them for favors. Therefore, I hereby authorize you to be imperious, regal, and overflowing with self-respect. I encourage you to seize exactly what you want, not what you're "supposed" to want. Or else be considerate, appropriate, modest, and full of harmonious caution. CUT! CUT! Delete that "be considerate" sentence. The Libra part of me tricked me into saying it. And this is one time when people of the Libra persuasion are allowed to be free from the compulsion to balance and moderate. You have a mandate to be the show, not watch the show.

    SCORPIO (Oct 23–Nov 21): Emily Dickinson wrote 1,775 poems—an average of one every week for 34 years. I'd love to see you launch an enduring, deep-rooted project that will require similar amounts of stamina, persistence, and dedication. Are you ready to expand your vision of what's possible for you to accomplish? The current astrological omens suggest that the next two months will be an excellent time to commit yourself to a Great Work that you will work on for the rest of your long life!

    SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22–Dec 21): What's the biggest lie in my life? That's difficult to say. There are several candidates. Here's one: I pretend I'm nonchalant about one of my greatest failures; I act as if I'm not distressed by the fact that the music I've created has never received the attention I think it should it have. How about you, Sagittarius? What's the biggest lie in your life? What's most false or dishonest or evasive about you? Whatever it is, the immediate future will be a favorable time to transform your relationship with it. You now have extraordinary power to tell yourself liberating truths. Three weeks from now, you could be a more authentic version of yourself than you've ever been.

    CAPRICORN (Dec 22–Jan 19): Now and then you go through phases when you don't know what you need until you stumble upon it. At times like those, you're wise not to harbor fixed ideas about what you need or where to hunt for what you need. Metaphorically speaking, a holy grail might show up in a thrift store. An eccentric stranger may provide you with an accidental epiphany at a bus stop or a convenience store. Who knows? A crucial clue may even jump out at you from a spam e-mail or a reality TV show. I suspect that the next two weeks might be one of those odd grace periods for you.

    AQUARIUS (Jan 20–Feb 18): "Reverse psychology" is when you convince people to do what you wish they would do by shrewdly suggesting that they do the opposite of what you wish they would do. "Reverse censorship" is when you write or speak the very words or ideas that you have been forbidden to express. "Reverse cynicism" is acting like it's chic to express glee, positivity, and enthusiasm. "Reverse egotism" is bragging about what you don't have and can't do. The coming weeks will be an excellent time to carry out all these reversals, as well as any other constructive or amusing reversals you can dream up.

    PISCES (Feb 19–March 20): Poet Emily Dickinson once told a friend that there was only one commandment she ever obeyed: "Consider the lilies." Japanese novelist Natsume Sseki told his English-speaking students that the proper Japanese translation for "I love you" is Tsuki ga tottemo aoi naa, which literally means "The moon is so blue tonight." In accordance with current astrological omens, Pisces, I'm advising you to be inspired by Dickinson and Sōseki. More than any other time in 2018, your duty in the coming weeks is to be sensual, rapturous, lyrical, beauty loving, and festively nonliteral.

              Savage Love      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Can he still call himself bisexual if he is only hetero-romantic? by Dan Savage

    Longtime Savage Love fanboy with a bit of a conundrum—and it's your fault! I'm a bi man in my 30s. To use Charles M. Blow's word, my bisexuality is "lopsided." This means that I fall in love with women exclusively, but I love to have sex with men occasionally. My current girlfriend not only approves, she likes to join in. We have a great kinky sex life, and at times we invite a hot bi dude to join us. You keep saying that to counter bisexual erasure, it is the duty of every bisexual to come out of the closet. If I were a "proper" bisexual, i.e., romantically interested in men also, that would be no problem—my family and work and social circles are extremely liberal. However, your advice to us kinksters and people in open relationships is that we probably shouldn't come out to our parents or colleagues, since when it comes to sex, it's advisable to operate on a need-to-know basis. While I agree with this completely—my mother doesn't need to know my girlfriend pegs me—the rule keeps me in the closet as well. Since I'm only sexually interested in men, wouldn't I be revealing facts about my sex life if I came out as bi? I also wouldn't want to mislead gay men into thinking that I'm available for romantic relationships with them. So which rule is more important: the duty to come out as a bisexual or the advice to operate on a need-to-know basis when it comes to your sex life?

    Bisexual Leaning Out Warily

    There's nothing improper about your bisexuality, BLOW—or Charles M. Blow's bisexuality, or the bisexuality of other "lopsided" bisexuals. While the idea that bisexuals are equally attracted to men and women sexually and romantically used to be pushed by a lot of bi activists ("I fall in love with people, not genitals!"), it didn't reflect the lived/fucked/sucked experience of most bisexuals. Like you and Blow (hetero-romantic bisexuals), many bisexuals have a strong preference for either women or men as romantic partners. My recently "gay married" bisexual friend Eric, however, is one of those bi-romantic bisexuals.

    This popular misconception—that bisexuals are indifferent to gender (and more highly evolved than all those genital-obsessed monosexuals)—left many people who were having sex with men and women feeling as if they didn't have an identity. Not straight, not gay, and disqualified from bi. But thanks to bisexuals like Blow coming out and owning their bisexuality and their lopsidedness, a more nuanced and inclusive understanding of bisexuality has taken root. That nuance is reflected in bisexual activist Robyn Ochs's definition of bisexuality: "I call myself bisexual," Ochs says, "because I acknowledge that I have in myself the potential to be attracted—romantically and/or sexually—to people of more than one sex and/or gender, not necessarily at the same time, not necessarily in the same way, and not necessarily to the same degree."

    Lopsided or not, BLOW, you're a proper bisexual, and if you're in a position to come out to your family and friends, you should. And rest assured, telling people you're bi doesn't mean you're divulging details about your sex life. You're disclosing your sexual orientation, not detailing your sexual practices. You can tell someone you're attracted to men and women—at the same time, in your case, if not in the same way—without telling them about the hot bi dudes you and the girlfriend bed together. And if you and the girlfriend are perceived to be monogamous, and you want to keep it that way, you can allow people to continue to make that assumption.

    Finally, BLOW, most gay men are aware that bi guys usually aren't romantically interested in other men. And that's fine—so long as hetero-romantic bi guys don't mislead us, most gay men are down to fuck. (And gay men who won't date homo-romantic or bi-romantic men? You guys are missing out. My friend Eric was a hot, hung, adventurous catch. Congrats, Christian!) And since you're partnered and presumed to be monogamous, you're also presumed to be unavailable. But if you're worried a gay friend might hire a hit man to off the girlfriend so he can have a shot at your heart, come out to him as hetero-romantic at the same time you come out to him as bi.


    Bi married man here. I was always out to my wife, but two months ago, I came out to our tight circle of friends. Everyone has been supportive, and I'm glad I took this step. But on three different occasions, my wife's best friend has loudly asked me whose cock I would most like to suck out of all the other guys at the party. My birthday is coming up, and I don't want her there. My wife doesn't want to offend her oldest friend, and she makes excuses like "She was drunk" or "She was only joking." I told my wife that I wouldn't be coming to my own birthday party if her friend was invited, but she invited her anyway "by accident." (She sent the invite via group text.) She doesn't want to confront or disinvite her friend because that would be awkward. What do we do?

    Her Unthinking Buddy Bad Yucks

    Here's what you're going to do, HUBBY: You're going to ask your wife how she would feel if a friend of yours was sexually harassing her and you made excuses for that friend ("He was drunk!") and then "accidentally" invited that asshole to her birthday party. Then if she won't call her friend and retract the invitation, you do it. It will be awkward, that's for sure, but your wife's friend shouldn't be spared that awkwardness. Lord knows she made things awkward for you—don't hesitate to return the favor.


    I am a 23-year-old bisexual woman and I have two questions for you: (1) Is it possible to fall in love differently with women than with men? I think I am bisexual because I have been in love with some women, despite never getting past a kiss. What I find strange is that whereas with men I feel immediate attraction, with women the attraction rises after a deep friendship is formed. (2) Is it possible that I was in love with two different people at the same time? I always thought that I could be in love with only one person at a time, but during that short span, I was in love with both a guy who made me suffer and my best friend, a woman, who helped me with that guy. After I found a new boyfriend, I stopped thinking about anyone else because our relationship is closed. But I don't know if that's just because I avoid thinking about others or because I wasn't really in love with the two people (despite my surprisingly real heartbreak).

    Bisexual In Need And Inquiring Finally

    1. See my response to BLOW, above.

    2. A person can love more than one parent, more than one child, more than one sibling, more than one set of tit clamps, and more than one romantic partner. Telling people they can feel romantic love for only one person at a time isn't just stupid, it's harmful. Let's say Bill is partnered with Ted, and Bill believes romantic attraction/love is a one-at-a-time phenomenon because that's what he was told. Now let's say Bill develops a crush on Sandra. If Bill doesn't question the one-at-a-time bullshit he was taught to believe about romantic love, Bill is highly likely to think, "Well, I must not be in love with Ted anymore, otherwise I couldn't feel this way about Sandra," and then he may dump tried-and-true Ted for shiny-and-new Sandra.

    I'm not arguing that everyone should be poly—most people want only one partner at a time, and that's fine. But telling people they can't experience romantic attraction or romantic love for more than one person at a time sets long-term relationships up for failure. Because while stable, lasting love feels amazing, it's less intoxicating than shiny, new, cum-drunk love. And while almost all stable, lasting loves were shiny, new, cum-drunk loves early on, very few new loves become lasting loves. If we don't want people tossing lasting love overboard every time they develop feelings for someone new, people need to know that, yes, you can be in love with two different people at the same time.

              Will Tacoma Officials Stand Up to the Private Prison Company Detaining Immigrants in Their Backyard?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Activists say the City of Tacoma should revoke GEO Group's business license. by Heidi Groover

    After protests, new fences now surround part of the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma.
    After protests, new fences now surround part of the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma. NWDC RESISTANCE

    Last week, Tacoma Mayor Victoria Woodards was one of dozens of mayors to call on the federal government to reunite immigrant families separated at the border. In a statement, Woodards said Tacoma "remains a welcoming city that is committed to providing immigrant and refugee communities with equitable access to city services."

    "I vow," she said, "that I will continue to fight for the health, safety, and success of immigrants and refugees."

    Now, immigration activists are asking Woodards to match those words with action by opposing Tacoma’s privately run immigrant detention center.

    Northwest Detention Center Resistance will deliver a petition to the mayor and Tacoma City Council today at 5 pm asking the city to revoke the business license of the GEO Group. The private company operates the Northwest Detention Center (NWDC), which holds around 1,500 immigrant detainees.

    “If they don’t want to be seen as part of Trump’s police, the city should revoke the business license immediately,” said Maru Mora Villalpando, an organizer with NWDC Resistance.

    The NWDC has been at the epicenter of local immigration advocates’ fights for years. Detainees there have launched hunger strikes over guards' treatment of detainees, the lack of contact visits with family members, and the food in the detention center. In recent months, women who were separated from their children at the border were transferred from a federal prison in SeaTac to the NWDC in Tacoma.

    Last year, Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson sued GEO Group over its practice of paying detainees $1 a day or less for work inside the detention center. GEO Group attempted to have the case dismissed, and in April a federal judge rejected that motion. The case is currently set for a trial in January 2019.

    GEO Group is also a player in local Congressional races. As the Seattle Times recently reported, Washington Senator Patty Murray was one of two Senate Democrats who received the most campaign donations from the private prison industry, including GEO Group. (Montana Senator John Tester received the same amount.)

    According to Tacoma city records, GEO Group currently has two business licenses, one to operate the detention center and another for its “in-house transportation division” that transports detainees.

    Today's action will mark the second time activists with NWDC Resistance have urged the City of Tacoma to revoke GEO Group’s business license. Mora Villalpando said city officials did not respond last year when activists made a similar demand.

    New outrage about U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) should make the city more willing to act, Mora Villalpando said. The city council has several new members, and the city this year created a Commission on Immigrant and Refugee Affairs.

    Neither the mayor nor any member of the Tacoma City Council responded to a request for comment from The Stranger. (I’ll update this post if I hear back.)

    Under the Trump Administration's "zero-tolerance" policy, thousands of immigrants have been separated from their children at the border and detained. Some of those detainees were transferred to federal prisons, including the Federal Detention Center in SeaTac.

    There, mothers who were separated from their children have told stories of fleeing violence in their home countries and receiving little information about where their children are now. Some of those detainees were later transferred from the prison in SeaTac to the Northwest Detention Center in Tacoma. Three women separated from their children and transferred to Washington prisons are now suing the federal government.

    As protests against ICE have swept the country in recent weeks, people have gathered outside both the prison in SeaTac and the NWDC in Tacoma to protest.

    In Tacoma, some protesters camped overnight beside railroad tracks near the detention center. Late last month, Tacoma Police arrested 10 people at the site. Additional fencing now blocks access to the train tracks.

              Inbox Jukebox Track of the Day: The Title Track from the Recently Reissued 1985 Electric Africa LP by Cameroonian Funk Legend Manu Dibango      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    The Inbox Jukebox track of the day is Manu Dibango's "Electric Africa," the highlight of the Cameroonian saxophonist's just-reissued 1985 LP. by Dave Segal

    Theres no Soul Makossa here, but this reissue of Dibangos 1985 LP exudes an air of mellow tropical celebration.
    There's no "Soul Makossa" here, but this reissue of Dibango's 1985 LP exudes an air of mellow tropical celebration.

    Manu Dibango, "Electric Africa" (Tidal Waves Music reissue; dist. by Light in the Attic). Arriving long after Manu Dibango's 1972 breakout hit, the oft-sampled, David Mancuso-caned "Soul Makossa," 1985's Electric Africa found the Cameroonian saxophonist/composer joining forces with producer Bill Laswell, legendary jazz keyboardist Herbie Hancock, synth magi Bernie Worrell (Parliament-Funkadelic, Talking Heads) and Wally Badarou, and other brilliant session players for a slight reinvention of his exuberant afro-jazz-funk. Its four easygoing tracks undulate with a casual gracefulness, their funk understated, their euphoria semi-muted; everything's dispersed over the long haul for an overall air of mellow tropical celebration.

    Electric Africa's highlight is the title track, 10-and-a-half minutes of Manu's deep declarations contrasting with a dulcet chorus of women vocalists. Over that interplay, Mory Kanté and Nicky Skopelitis's spidery kora harp and guitar riffs, respectively (much in the vein of James Brown's guitarists Jimmy Nolen and Catfish Collins), Hancock's mercurial piano motifs, and Dibango's joyous sax stabs work up a humid head of steam, nudging you onto the dance floor with the subtlest of gestures. Oddly, the track recalls the inexhaustible buoyancy of Tom Tom Club's classic 1981 debut album, which bore obvious and reverent influences from Africa. Circle of life... of the party right here.

    Tidal Waves Music has reissued Electric Africa in a limited edition of 500 on blue vinyl.

              Stanley Kubrick Explains the Endings of 2001 and The Shining in a Lost Japanese TV Documentary About Paranormal Activity      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

    My god, its full of movie stars.
    My god, it's full of movie stars.

    I loathe the internet and nearly everyone who uses it for any purpose. Every so often, however, it turns up a flawless diamond like this unedited compilation of b-roll footage shot in 1979 by a Japanese TV crew visiting the offices of Stanley Kubrick during post-production of The Shining as part of their research into paranormal activity on the set of the film. The footage, produced and presented by Jun'ichi Yaoi, had been languishing on VHS in the incomparably vast archives of the late "UFOlogist" Wendelle C. Stevens, presumably for the last 38 years or so.

    The footage below offers features incredible interviews with both Kubrick (whom Stranger Film Editor Charles Mudede once called "the most overrated director of the 20th century") and his brilliant daughter Vivian—who was in the midst of making her own (vg) documentary about the production (before the Scientologists got their nefarious meathooks on her)—that reveal more, almost offhand, about the late filmmaker's famously guarded authorial intentions than any other existing document... Times like these it's almost hard to stay mad at the internet, even if it did kill language, culture, and democracy.

              How Whitney Houston Destroyed Dolly Parton's Beautiful "I Will Always Love You" Forever      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    by Charles Mudede

    body.jpg
    The Bodyguard

    What the new doc on Whitney Houston, simply called Whitney, makes abundantly clear is that her life as a celebrity was far more interesting than her chart-unstoppable songs. In her voice, we heard the death of a long tradition of expressing, in popular terms, deep human emotions (soul music) and the emergence of the sheerness of presence. This was a now-ness even surpassing that of the android in Blade Runner, Rachel, which at least had artificial memories. There was no past to speak of with Whitney. There was just there there. This is how she sounded in song after song.

    Hers was a will that sings 'I will,' a confidence that sings of its own confidence. The generation that discovered Aretha ("One Step From Misery") Franklin would have ignored or completely missed Houston. But Reagan's USA could not. Here was the voice of an age that attacked (and finally destroyed) a working-class subjectivity with bitter class memories and the idea of progress as a history of master/servant struggles (Walter Benjamin's "historical cognition"), and replaced it with a depth-less, content-less subjectivity that was cellular, self-invented, and self-improving. No one sang this better than Whitney. She wasn't the secularization of gospel (that's Franklin), but the real subsumption of the black secular. This is why the praise heaped on Whitney Houston by the wealthy New York investment banker in American Psycho, Patrick Bateman (Christian Bale), is so effective. He is not being funny. He gets her voice. She is the purest sound of Reaganomics ever recorded.

    Patrick Bateman to the women making out on the couch next to him:

    It's hard to choose a favorite among so many great tracks. But "The Greatest Love of All" is one of the best, most powerful songs ever written about self-preservation and dignity. Its universal message crosses all boundaries and instills one with the hope that it's not too late to better ourselves... Since, Elizabeth, it's impossible in this world we live in to empathize with others, we can always empathize with ourselves. It's an important message. Crucial, really. And it's beautifully stated on the album.


    Whitney Houston's debut album is "called simply Whitney Houston."

    In 1992, Houston made millions of dollars by destroying everything that was truly beautiful in Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You." Her robo-powered R&B version of the country-lite tune was, as always, a force that sings it is a force because it is a force. Whom ever she was singing to, she was blowing that person down to the ground. Recall that Maxell tape commercial from the '80s.

    80s.jpg

    That was the lover in her song. And this person is nothing like the one in Parton's original version, which was recorded in 1973. Both the lover and the singer are broken people. They are going through a lot. Breaking up is painful. Parton's voice is so fragile. She may or may not have made the right decision. She could be alone for the rest her life. Her heart may never heal. She is a reed in Pascal's existential wind.

    This is how the soul of a human really feels. It has texture, and grain to it, and it might be on the point of breaking and falling into a despair that the self, by itself, cannot hope to pull its own self out of.

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

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

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

    The latest iteration of this culture jamming impulse has a slightly more caustic aim. A Facebook group is campaigning to make Green Day's 2004 single "American Idiot" number one in the charts during the time when US President Donald Trump is in the country for a "working visit." According to CNN, the effort is working, and it's only one of several art-based anti-Trump protests gaining momentum.

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

              I'm Tired of Swinging. Tell My Husband to Do It Without Me!      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Savage Love Letter of the Day by Dan Savage

    1525120010-1516999045-savage-letter-of-the-day-stamp-2018.jpg

    My husband and I are at an impasse, and I’m really hoping you can help. A few years into our marriage, my husband started talking about swinging. He also revealed he’s bi and wanted to explore that side of his sexuality. I felt uncomfortable with the idea of swinging, but gradually came around. Yay! GGG! Over the last two years, we joined a web site, met a few couples, and had three experiences—once with one couple, twice with another.

    On my end, the experiences were progressively less enjoyable. I tried to get in touch with my bisexual side, and found it pretty much missing. I tried to have a good time for my husband’s sake, and came away feeling more and more uncomfortable with the entire situation, and a whole hell of a lot less turned on in general. I want to be GGG, I want to give it a good faith effort, but I also really don’t want to have sex with other people, and I don’t know how to change that.

    I don’t mind if my husband swings without me. Watching him with another man or woman wasn’t a problem; I was happy to see him getting off, and getting something I couldn’t give him. But he wants to swing with me, because he feels like it will bring us closer together. He also worries he won’t find a partner without me.

    Now we’re stuck in a situation where it feels like, whatever we do, something is going to get screwed (or not get screwed). I don’t want to swing again, because our last experiences were so uncomfortable. But I also feel like I’m taking something important away from my husband if I say we can’t swing again. (He can’t exactly explore his bisexuality with just me.) This issue is impacting our marriage, and we’ve got two small kids together. Please help!

    No Clever Acronym, Sorry

    You wanted to be GGG and you were GGG—you gave swinging a try, you gave it a chance, and it doesn't work for you.

    And while he may not be able to swing on his own—the organized swinging scene is notoriously hostile to openly bi men—your husband can seek out other sex partners, right? You don’t mind him sleeping with other people, NCAS, so long as don’t have to sleep with other people too? And so long as seeking outside sex doesn't negatively impact your marriage or kids? Is that accurate? — Dan

    Wow, thanks for your response! I’m totally cool with him seeking out men, or women, himself... but yeah, I just don’t want to sleep with them myself. And yes, we’ve found swinging is not very friendly to bi-identified men, but it’s not clear where else to look. We live in a pretty rural area. — NCAS

    First things first: If you don’t wanna go to swingers parties to swing, don’t go. If you don’t wanna sleep with other people, don’t sleep with other people.

    You’re not even obligated to open up your marriage—that’s something two people have to negotiate and agree on together, NCAS, if both parties are interested in practicing ethical non-monogamy. (A lot of people open their relationships unilaterally and secretly; that would be unethical non-monogamy, aka cheating.) If you’re willing to let your husband sleep with other people, he should be grateful for that—he should be ecstatic. What he shouldn’t be is pressuring you to sleep with other people because that makes it easier for him to find other sex partners. You’re his spouse, not his bait.

    That said, NCAS, I'm going to quote from the advice I recently gave a guy in a newly opened marriage whose wife was getting tons of extramarital D while he got no additional P...

    Openness only works when it's working for both partners. While getting her male partner laid is not the responsibility of a woman in open relationship, helping him—if she can—may be in her own best interests. If her husband/boyfriend becomes jealous and jealousy curdles into resentment, well, that's gonna undermine the primary relationship. So a willingness on a woman's part to attend swingers events or play parties with her male partner or to vouch for him if another woman wants to check in with her first (to make sure the husband/boyfriend isn't lying) or to make an introduction when and where she can—are any of her male sex friends in open relationships? are the women they're with looking to get laid too?—are all proactive steps a woman in an open relationship can take to help out her male partner. It's not about her being responsible (for getting him laid), it's about her being supportive (in his efforts to get himself laid).

    You aren't obligated to get your husband laid, NCAS, but you can vouch for him and, if the swingers parties themselves aren't too painful (if it's just the sex part that bothers you and not the other-people-including-your-husband-having-sex part), you could attend a party now and then with your husband and let him play on his own. (Single men aren't welcome at most swingers parties.)

    As for the husband finding guys to have sex with: I’ve heard that apps are a good source of dick and lots of queers who live in rural areas are on Scruff and Grindr. Your husband could look there. Also, if there’s a big city nearby, your husband could list himself in that city on dating/hookup sites and travel for dick. Lots of people do.

    Having to seek outside sex on his own may make things slightly more difficult for your husband, logistically speaking, but coercing you into doing sexual things that you don’t wanna do is gonna create conflict and resentment—precisely the kind of conflict and resentment that can (and should!) prove fatal to a marriage.

    You've given him permission to explore on his own. That's enough—hell, it's more than a man who made a monogamous commitment to a person before having two children with that same person has a right to expect. He can't demand that you fuck other people just because it'll make it easier for him to do the same. — Dan

    Both of us really appreciate your thoughtful response and your suggestions. And I’m flattered to just get a response at all—I think sending so many letters to my senators and getting absolutely nothing in response has left me genuinely stunned when I hear back from anyone. So, thanks on a whole different level! — NCAS

              Happy Dab Day: Why 7/10 is a Stoner Holiday      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    by Josh Jardine

    Today is July 10. It’s a special day for those of you who enjoy concentrates and extracts, although if you do enough dabs, any day can be a special day. Numerically speaking, today is 7/10. Virtually all dispensaries will have sales on numerous forms of dabs, so stock up, and give thanks for this "high holy day" in remembrance of the late great Doctor Leopold von Dabowitz, born on July 10, 1939.

    Dr. von Dabowitz was the first stoner who, after finishing a bowl of flower, asked himself, “Is that all there is? Is there not a way I can get higher?” And in that moment, it dawned on him that yes, certainly there must be, and so the good doctor set out to find out.

    Leopold began with the notion that solvents could be utilized to strip the THC and terpenes from the cannabis plant and concentrate them. His first attempts left something to be desired, as he used fully leaded gasoline in his first runs. While this resulted in the popular “diesel” taste sought after in today’s marketplace, he neglected to fully purge his product. As such, during his first hit, he burned off his eyebrows and hair in a fireball. Neither ever grew back, gaining him the derisive nickname “Egghead,” which is why we call smart people that same thing to this day.

    He moved into kerosene, motor oil, rubbing alcohol, paint stripper, and radiator fluid, with each subsequent explosion resulting in the loss of his nose, ears, and lips. “Maybe you should just try agitating the bud in ice water and collecting the accumulated THC crystal,” suggested his wife, who like all women, was far smarter than her husband. “Nurmer!” he shouted, which is lipless for “Never!”

    Leopold upgraded to butane, which produced a cleaner, clearer finished product, although his friends pointed out that a box of lighters from the Dollar Store didn't make for the best butane available, and was resulting in a nasty, black, tar-like finished product, and perhaps he shouldn’t be producing his concentrate in his wife’s dog grooming studio, as nearly half the weight of his dabs consisted of a mixture of stray Labradoodle and German Shepherd fur. “That stuff is nasty, broheim—what about using a mixture of heat and pressure to obtain a solvent-free product?” asked his friends. “Ruck lew,” Leopold cursed at them between coughing fits from smoking his OG Chihuahua Kush.

    Von Dabowitz died in an explosion while producing a full nug run. Being high AF, he had decided to address his munchies by making s'mores in his lab. “I can just make you a sandwich,” his wife said nervously. “I’m not sure you want to have an open flame in a room filled with butane fumes.” “Nit gill re line [It will be fine]," he replied, just before a 30-foot fireball consumed him.

    So this 7/10, celebrate this pioneer of pot by heading to your local dispensary, and dabbing while remembering his amazing work that—wait, what? Are we sure?

    I’ve just been informed that the real meaning of 710 is that it spells “OIL” when that number is turned upside down. Huh. Not sure where I got that other stuff. Must be the dabs.

    Check your social media feeds or resources such as Leafly and Weedmaps to find Dab Day deals near you. Happy 710 everyone!

              Machine House's New Pub Is Serving Seattle’s Most Understated Beer      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Machine House Brewing, Seattle's best purveyor of traditional cask ales, opened a new pub in the Central District. They're open for all the World Cup games. by Lester Black

    Machine Houses new pub has two televisions for your soccer viewing pleasure.
    Machine House's new pub has two televisions for your soccer viewing pleasure. Lester Black

    This past Saturday I was at a pub before 8 a.m. watching the World Cup, which is weird because I couldn't care less about soccer. So, what made me wake up at such an ungodly hour on the weekend?

    Something far more important than sports: Beer, specifically Machine House Brewery’s Dark Mild.

    Saturday’s 7 a.m. match between England and Sweden coincided with the grand opening of Machine House’s new pub on Jefferson Street in the Central District. So, while men fought over a soccer ball and eager fans gazed at two flat screens in the pub, I let myself be consumed by the beautiful balance of Dark Mild. This beer has the mellow flavor of roasted grains, a completely dry body, and finishes with notes of dried cherries and raisins. It’s probably Seattle’s most understated beer.

    Machine House's new pub has been a long time coming. They've had a lease on their space for almost a year, but Saturday's timing with England winning a match in the World Cup felt natural, considering the cask ales Machine House produces are the traditional drink of Great Britain. Bill Arnott, the brewer and owner of Machine House, spent the game pacing behind the bar watching his native England play an elimination game, occasionally wincing at plays even after his team was up by two goals.

    “I’m just glad we got this place open before England got knocked out, I didn’t think it was going to happen,” Arnott said.

    The pub is Machine House's second location; their original taproom and brewery is in the original Rainier Brewery building Georgetown. The pub strikes a design balance between the new American urbanism that has invaded the Central District with polished concrete floors and big glass windows and the wood-paneled coziness you expect from a classic English pub. A chalkboard runs above the entire length of the bar, displaying the tap list and a small menu of toasts, and a glass window sits underneath the board, giving drinkers a peek at casks of beer.

    Even if Arnott’s new pub looked like a Mexican restaurant he would still be serving the most authentic English drinking experience this side of the Atlantic. Arnott ferments his traditional cask ales in open vats, as opposed to the sterile and sealed fermenters most modern beer is made in. Cask ale is never artificially carbonated, creating a smoother beer that lacks the strong fizz of your classic IPA.

    Without any forced carbonation, cask ales are served with only the help of gravity and the traditional hand pumps that the bartender pulls to fill up your pint. This serving method is what makes cask ale especially unique, and perfecting Machine House’s new pub’s serving system was one of the reasons for the pub’s delayed opening.

    "Everything is designed to serve cask ale the best way, better even than our bar in Georgetown," Arnott said.

    This specialized serving system is one of the reasons Arnott opened up this new pub—he doesn’t trust most taprooms around town to serve his beer correctly. So, to get his beers to customers unable or unwilling to track to the deep south of our city, he had to bring his own cask lines north.

    The central district pub is likely to make a lot of the city’s brewers and craft beer fanatics happy. His beers are beloved in the city for their nuance and balance, and it helps that most of their best beers are under 4 percent alcohol, an enjoyable proposition for industry regulars who often tire of excessive alcohol. When Machine House is at its best, and it usually is, their beers are succinct little packages that deliver beguiling flavor without hitting you over the head. They’re charming beers, like a witty remark that lingers in your head for hours.

    That’s not to say everyone will love Machine House’s ales—their warmer serving temperature and lack of fizz make for a rude awakening for those that lack curiosity. Just check the Yelp page for the Georgetown taproom and you’ll see how many patrons are confused by the “warm beer” and “off flavors.” Arnott plans to appease cask ale haters with a few guest taps as well as cider and wine. Given Machine House’s local prestige, good kegs will likely find their way to this pub.

    Machine House plans to open early every weekend for European soccer matches as well as the rest of the World Cup. England plays their semi-final match Wednesday at 11 a.m., and with beer this good Machine House is likely to have a packed house watching.

    Arnott watches his native England play in the World Cup from behind his new bar.

    Someone please tell Costco that good things really don't have to come to an end, because they seem to think otherwise. 

    As reported by the Seattle Times, the wholesale giant will be retiring the Polish dog from their food court menus across the country and replaced with healthier options — and people are livid.

    Thankfully, you'll still be able to enjoy the cheap delicacies of an all-beef hot dog or chicken bake while you wait in line or peruse the warehouse. But in addition to those classic food items, customers will also be able to buy organic burgers and vegan options, including a meatless plant-based salad called "Al Pastor Salad," and açai fruit bowls.  Read more...

              Liquid Music Series Presents Hanna Benn & Deantoni Parks      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Analogue, digital, acoustic, and synthetic sonorities seamlessly intermingle in this luminous collaboration between Atlanta-based duo vocalist/composer Hanna Benn (Son Lux, Boots) and percussionist/composer/producer Deantoni Parks (John Cale, Sade, T Bone Burnett, Flying Lotus). Procession explores the spiritual and emotional core of ceremonial music in the form of Benn's newly arranged song cycle - a combination of Benn's ethereal vocal textures with electronic flourishes, anchored by Park's ceaselessly kinetic rhythms alongside an SPCO string quartet. Join us to step into this truly numinous "sanctuary of sound" (Pitchfork).

    "In this fast paced world filled with screens and social media, we wanted to create a piece reflecting purposeful procession of being," said Benn and Parks in a statement describing their collaboration. "Procession, is a song cycle that enters a ceremony and never exits. It's a gesture of intention to show up to one's life with presence, a set of musical meditations on letting go of the past and the myth of tomorrow-like a whirling dervish, the intention spins and dances. We're excited to share this music and for the opportunity to bring this to life with the SPCO musicians."

    CONCERT DATE AND LOCATION

    Sunday, Sept 23, 2018

    Machine Shop, Minneapolis

    Music at 7:00pm

    ABOUT HANNA BENN

    With origins rooted in gospel and choral music, Hanna Benn began exploring music as both an intimate and collective experience at an early age. Her influences soon included Stravinsky, English pastoral music, R&B, Alice Coltrane and Olivier Messiaen. Benn studied composition and voice at Cornish College of the Arts and has been composing ever since. While in Seattle, she co-founded an experimental pop band called Pollens. She has worked with CMF Festival Orchestra, Saint Helen's String Quartet, Seattle Chamber Players, St. Marks Cathedral Choir, Opus 7 and the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra.

    She wrote and recorded work on Son Lux's Bones album and toured with Boots (who has produced Beyoncé, FKA Twigs, and Run the Jewels). Her commissioned work and compositions have been performed across the country, from a five-hour immersive opera and dance performance in collaboration with Alice Gosti and the Northwest Symphony Orchestra to a composition celebrating Black American composers with Davida Ingram and the North Chamber Orchestra. She recently completed a residency at Central State in Indianapolis where she wrote much of her new album.

    Benn's voice carries with it the crispness of cathedral tones - the sensuality of her sacred sonic corpus mixes with a clarity that rushes ambiguity out through the stained glass windows. She is able to take clearly delineated genres, deconstruct them, and then unify them in her work - creating pieces that are simultaneously accessible and profound, elevated and organic, sacred and common.

    Deantoni Parks is an American new wave/avant-garde/experimental drummer, songwriter, film director, actor and record producer. He is the founder, producer and drummer of the New York band KUDU, and one-half of the writing duo Dark Angels with producer and keyboardist Nick Kasper, also a member of KUDU.

    POMONA, Calif. (AP) — Prosecutors say former NFL cornerback Brandon Browner has been charged with trying to kill his ex-girlfriend after breaking into her Southern California home.

    Browner, who won Super Bowls with the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots, was arrested Sunday east of Los Angeles.

    The LA County District Attorney's Office says the 33-year-old was charged Tuesday with attempted murder, first-degree residential robbery and other counts.

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


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

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

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

    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.

              NFL player says TSA spilled mother's ashes inside suitcase      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    New York Giants defensive tackle A.J. Francis says the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) spilled his late mother's ashes in his suitcase during an inspection of checked luggage before a flight. However, the agency contends his version of events, saying the container with the ashes was "loosely packaged" after reviewing video.

    On Monday morning, Francis tweeted about his frustration with the TSA, along with a photo showing the ashes scattered on items of clothing inside his luggage. He was flying out of Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) after spending time with family following his mother's death last month.

    "Hey you pieces of [sh*t] @TSA next time you [a**holes] feel the need to go thru my mother's ashes for no reason, make sure you close it back so her remains aren't spilled on all my clothes," he wrote.

    The photo included a flyer from the TSA informing Francis that his luggage was among the pieces of checked luggage that was inspected by agents. He tweeted that he has no problem with the TSA checking his bag, but said the agents were "irresponsible" when handling the urn that held his mother's ashes.

    "The craziest part of this @TSA [sh*t] is that I don't even care that they checked it... they were just being cautious, & I can understand that. But to not ensure that it won't spill back into my bag after you put it back in is the most asinine & irresponsible [sh*t] I have ever seen."

    The TSA apologized to Francis on Twitter, replying with a link to file a formal complaint. "Out of respect for the deceased, under no circumstances should the container be opened," the agency's customer service account said.

    On Tuesday, TSA spokesperson Michelle Negron told CBS News the agency reviewed video of the screening and agents were alerted to an opened, unidentified object in Francis' checked bag.

    "A TSA officer discovered the unidentified object was an opened, unmarked ceramic container, wrapped in aluminum foil inside a small bag. Upon further inspection of the checked bag, the container was loosely packaged, unmarked and the contents unknown to the TSA officer," Negron said, adding that the officer carefully repacked and placed it back into the checked bag.

    Francis joined the Giants in May after playing for several NFL teams, including the Washington Redskins and Seattle Seahawks.

              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.
