          Dolan praises St. Dominic at KofC convention      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Baltimore, Md., Aug 8, 2018 / 03:54 pm (CNA).- The Archbishop of New York encouraged Catholics to imitate the patient and persistent prayer of St. Dominic, during a homily Aug. 8 at the 2018 Knights of Columbus convention in Baltimore.

“Jesus prefers patient, persistent, persevering, pestering prayer! St. Dominic claims this creates within us a readiness, a space, to receive God’s answer.  We would say such constant prayer exercises our ‘faith muscle,’ which tends to get flabby,” said Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York.

The cardinal pointed to St. Dominic’s dedication to the rosary and contemplation of the Gospels as daily practices worthy of imitation, comparing St. Dominic’s perseverance with that of the Canaanite woman in the Gospel.

Dolan also commended the amount of prayer that takes place at the Knights of Columbus’ annual convention, which includes daily Masses, a Eucharistic adoration chapel, and invocations before every event.

Aug. 8 is celebrated in the Church as the memorial of St. Dominic, the 13th century founder of the Order of Preachers, known as the Dominicans, who spread devotion to the rosary.

“This towering saint gives us an abundance of attributes to celebrate: his preaching, so renowned that his spiritual sons are called ‘the order of preachers’; his intellect, the spring that gave us scholarly giants such as St. Albert and St. Thomas Aquinas; his zeal, as St. Dominic was non-stop in his teaching, preaching, travel, and work, all for Jesus and His Church,” said Dolan.

However, he reminded the Knights that prayer was “what generated the renowned preaching, scholarship, and evangelical energy of St. Dominic.”

After the Mass, the Greek Melkite Archbishop of Aleppo, Syria, Jean-Clement Jeanbart spoke briefly about a pilgrim icon of Our Lady Help of Persecuted Christians, which was then blessed by Archbishop William Lori of Baltimore.

Lori’s blessing was the kickoff to the Knights’ Marian icon prayer program. The archbishop invoked St. Paul’s words, “though we are afflicted in every way, we are not crushed; though perplexed, not driven to despair; though persecuted, not forsaken; though struck down, not destroyed.”

          Harrisonburg’s Illiterate Light discovers the pull of Montrose Recording      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Musicians Jeff Gorman and Jake Cochran wanted to tour the mid-Atlantic in a different way. So in 2012, they did a nine-day bike tour, stopping in Harrisonburg, Staunton, Charlottesville, Richmond, Fredericksburg, Alexandria and finishing in Baltimore.

Accompanied by friends, they hauled a bike-powered generator in a bike trailer. At shows, two people biked in place on a tandem bicycle to run the generator that powered the sound system for the show. The seeds were planted for what would become their experimental indie rock duo, Illiterate Light.

Gorman's grandfather was a jazz drummer while his uncle Steve is a drummer and founding member of the Black Crowes, so he grew up drumming. In high school, he picked up the guitar because he wanted to write. Cochran studied drums in high school, but by the time he met Gorman at James Madison University, he was playing guitar more than drums and working on his songwriting.

Both are passionate about life outside of music — agriculture, biking, building community and social justice — but by the time they graduated in 2012, they'd decided to focus all their energy on it. It was when they started touring heavily out of state that they got comfortable onstage.

"That meant making errors, playing wrong notes, good shows, bad shows, having a guitar amp crap out midset, singing with strep throat, playing while exhausted or playing to an empty room in a cold city," Gorman says. He says getting comfortable with their imperfections allowed their shows to improve because they were less reactive to each unexpected moment and more present and focused on enjoying every second of it.

While they'd started as a trio in February 2015, by November that year, they'd transitioned to a duo. The band's name comes from a Wilco song called "Theologians," which has a line: "Inlitterati lumen fidei / God is with us everyday / That illiterate light / Is with us every night." Gorman saw the phrase illiterate light as representing a force or energy that was big and loving, inclusive and full of mystery.

Although the band is based in Harrisonburg, the two feel drawn to Richmond.

"There's something special about Richmond and I think it comes down to the people," Cochran insists. "We've played all over the East Coast the last three years, but for some reason Richmond opened their arms to us like no one else."

When it came time to record, choosing a studio was a no-brainer. Impressed by records coming out of Montrose Recording by local bands such as Camp Howard and the Wimps, the band got a nudge from local musician Charlie Glenn of the Trillions.

"After hanging a few times, he told us pretty plainly that we needed to record with his friend Adrian [Olsen] at Montrose," Cochran recalls. "He said, 'You need to capture your live sound and energy and your current recordings aren't doing it."

The duo already had a few days of studio time booked in Nashville with Vance Powell, who'd worked with Kings of Leon and the White Stripes. But it was several months off, so they booked two days at Montrose with a few half-finished songs. "We came out three days later with five incredible tracks that we just couldn't believe," Cochran says. "We fell in love with that studio and felt we finally found the right team with Adrian and Charlie co-producing."

They wound up booking another week a few months later and finished with a full length album that was mixed by Powell.

Nashville has become a second home for Illiterate Light because of the support they've gotten from its scene. It's meant meeting musicians they love and respect and finding out they're welcoming and supportive of young bands.

"Tom Blankenship, the bassist for My Morning Jacket, caught one of our shows at an East Nashville dive bar last year and now he comes to a ton of our shows there. He's really supportive, which means the world to us."

At the upcoming Richmond gig, the band will be playing songs from the new album, which is fitting, not just because the songs are fresh right now, but because they came to life at the Camel over the past year. Touring follows with the East Coast in August, the Southeast in September and Midwest in October.

"Believe it or not we've got more studio dates booked with Montrose," Gorman admits. "We just finished this album, but the next one is already brewing and Richmond is a great place for us to keep the ball rolling." S

Illiterate Light, the Trillions and the Wimps perform at the Camel on Aug. 18 at 9 p.m. at 1621 W. Broad St., thecamel.org.

GODZINA: 1:10 DYSCYPLINA: Baseball MECZ: Tampa Bay Rays vs Baltimore Orioles TYP: 1 KURS: 1.56 BUKMACHER: LvBet ANALIZA: Mecz pomiędzy 7 a 15 drużyną American League. Wczoraj w pierwszym meczu tych drużyn po zaciętym meczu i bardzo dobrej końcówce gospodarzy padł wynik 4:3. Dzisiaj moim zdaniem będzie podobnie chociaż liczę na bardziej okazałe zwycięstwo zawodników z Florydy. Tampa zajmuje aktualnie 7 miejsce ale bardzo dużo brakuje im do 6 miejsca. Na ostatnie 10 meczy wygrali tylko 4 ale myślę że dziś poprawią ten wynik. Baltimore jest drużyną która na wyjazdach spisuje się fatalnie. Ich bilans w meczach wyjazdowych wynosi 14-44. Dawno w lidze nie było tak słabej na wyjazdach drużyny. Miotaczem gości będzie Andrew Cashner (3-10) 31 letni bardzo doświadczony zawodnik którego statystki w tym sezonie wyglądają bardzo słabo. Jego ERA wynosi 5.05. Po drugiej stronie miotaczem będzie Ryne Stanek (1-3) 27 letni zawodnik dla którego jest to dopiero 2 sezon w lidze. Mimo niewielkiego doświadczenia jego statystki wyglądają dobrze. Jego ERA wynosi tylko 2.27. Wszystko wskazuje na to że Tampa odniesie dziś zwycięstwo. Liczę tylko że będzie bardziej okazałe przyjdzie nam oglądać fajny i emocjonujący mecz. Powodzenia!!!

          Transit Death Spiral Continues      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Transit ridership has been dropping for four years and increased subsidies won’t fix the problem. Data released by the Federal Transit Administration yesterday show that nationwide ridership was 3.1 percent less in June 2018 than it had been in June 2017. Ridership fell for all major modes of transit, including commuter rail (-2.6%), heavy rail (-2.5%), light rail (-3.3%), and buses (-3.8%). 

June 2018 had one fewer work day than June 2017, which may account for part of the ridership decline. But ridership in the first six months of 2018 was 3.0 percent less than the same months of 2017, and again ridership declined for all major modes of transit.

As in previous months, I’ve posted an enhanced spreadsheet that has all of the raw monthly data from the FTA spreadsheet but includes annual totals from 2002 through 2018 in columns GZ through HP, modal totals in rows 2125 through 2131, transit agency totals in rows 2140 through 3139, and urban area totals for the nation’s 200 largest urban areas in rows 3141 through 3340. The same enhancements are included on the “VRM” or vehicle-revenue miles worksheet.

June 30 is the end of the fiscal year for many if not most transit agencies, so now we can compare transit’s 2018 fiscal year performance against 2017 (see columns HU to HW in the spreadsheet). Nationwide ridership in FY 2018 declined 2.7 percent from 2017 and of course it fell for hundreds of transit agencies.

Of the nation’s 50 largest urban areas, June ridership grew in eleven, January through June ridership grew in ten, and fiscal year ridership grew in just six. Seattle is one of the six, having grown by 1.4 percent, the others being Pittsburgh (0.2%), Providence (1.1%), Nashville (3.5%), Hartford (3.3%), and Raleigh (6.1%). Except Seattle, these urban areas have seen declines in other recent years so this increase is not a great victory and probably won’t be sustained for long in the future. 

As I’ve noted elsewhere, Seattle has enjoyed steady growth in transit ridership not because it built light rail but because it has increased downtown jobs from 216,000 in 2010 to 292,000 in 2017. Downtown jobs are the key to transit ridership because most transit agencies run hub-and-spoke systems focused on central city downtowns. But replicating Seattle’s downtown growth is impossible in most regions, as all but six American cities have far fewer downtown jobs; nor would most people agree to accept the costs Seattle is paying in terms of subsidies to new employers, traffic congestion, and high housing prices resulting from land-use restrictions that prevent jobs and housing from moving to the suburbs.

Fiscal year ridership declines in many urban areas were larger than the increases in the few regions where ridership grew. The worst were Charlotte (-15.1%), Cleveland (-11.7%), Miami (-10.3%), St. Louis (-8.2%), Memphis (-7.7%), Jacksonville (-7.0%), Baltimore (-6.6%), Richmond (-6.6%), Philadelphia (-6.5%), Cincinnati (-6.2%), Virginia Beach (-6.1%), Dallas-Ft. Worth (-5.9%), Phoenix (-5.6%), and Boston (-5.2%). This is in addition to significant declines in all of these urban areas between 2014 and 2017.

Officials at the Charlotte Area Transit System must be proud that the light-rail expansion they opened in March led to a 65 percent increase in June light-rail ridership over June 2017. Yet this was a hollow victory as the agency lost 36,000 more bus riders than it gained in rail riders.

Transit agencies get about a third of their operating funds from fare revenues, and the decline in ridership has forced many to reduce service. The vehicle-revenue miles page shows that nationwide transit service declined by 5.1 percent in June 2018 vs. 2017. While some people blame the ridership declines on the service reductions, at least one study says it is the other way around: service has declined because riders abandoned transit, forcing agencies to cut back on spending.

Transit ridership has declined in many urban areas despite increasing service. Among many others, Phoenix increased 2018 service by 11.0 percent yet lost 5.6 percent of its riders; San Jose increased service by 3.1 percent but lost 4.2 percent of its riders; Indianapolis increased service by 4.3 percent yet lost 3.9 percent of its riders; Austin increased service by 6.5 percent yet lost 1.1 percent of its riders.

It appears that ride hailing is the principal factor in ridership declines. A recent study estimates that ride hailing grew by 710 million trips in 2017. If just 36 percent of those trips were people who would otherwise would have taken transit, then ride hailing is responsible for all of the decline in 2017. Declining ridership leads to service reductions, which results in more ridership declines, producing a death spiral of revenue shortfalls followed by service reductions followed by more revenue shortfalls.

Some cities are supplementing transit revenues by taxing ride-hailing companies, which I’ve noted elsewhere is a little like taxing word processors to protect the typewriter industry or pocket calculators to protect the slide rule industry. At least one city is looking at taxing marijuana to subsidize transit.

It doesn’t really matter. The decline in transit ridership is beyond the control of transit agencies, and increasing subsidies to what is already the nation’s most-heavily-subsidized form of transportation won’t make much difference. The only question is when will appropriators realize that it is pointless to continue subsidizing a dying industry and start winding down those subsidies.

BALTIMORE (AP) - The plaintiffs in a public prayer dispute are dropping their request for a federal judge in Baltimore to reinstate his order barring the Carroll County Commissioners from opening their meetings with invocations mentioning Jesus Christ. Lawyers for the Washington-based American Humanist Association said in a filing recorded Monday that they withdrew the motion to save court time. They say they plan to file a motion for summary judgment, asking the judge to decide the matter without a full-blown trial. The U.S. District Court judge lifted the injunction May 8 after the U.S. Supreme Court approved of clergy invoking specific deities in opening prayers at government meetings. The ruling didn't specifically address Carroll County's practice of having opening prayers said by the elected commissioners themselves.

Artificial intelligence, which is bringing us everything from self-driving cars to personalized ads on the web, is also invading the world of medicine. In radiology, this technology is increasingly helping doctors in their jobs. A computer program that assists doctors in diagnosing strokes garnered approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration earlier this year. Another that helps doctors diagnose broken wrists in X-ray images won FDA approval on May 24. One particularly intriguing line of research seeks to train computers to diagnose one of the deadliest of all malignancies, pancreatic cancer, when the disease is still readily treatable. That's the vision of Dr. Elliot Fishman , a professor of radiology at Johns Hopkins Medicine in Baltimore. Artificial intelligence and radiology seem like a natural match, since so much of the task of reading images involves pattern recognition. It's a dream that's been decades in the making, Fishman says. "When I started in radiology, they said
          Veteran Receives Penis Transplant To Repair War Wound      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
A team of surgeons says it has repaired the genitals of a serviceman severely injured by an explosion in Afghanistan. It's the first time a penis has been transplanted to treat a war wound. Doctors at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore say 11 surgeons were involved in the 14-hour surgery in March. The patient, who requested anonymity, is expected to be released from the hospital later this week, "and we are optimistic that he will regain near-normal urinary and sexual functions following full recovery," Dr. W.P. Andrew Lee said at a news conference announcing the surgery on Monday. The man's fertility won't be restored, however. His testicles did not survive his ordeal and a testicle transplant would raise deep ethical issues, because the genetic material in the sperm would be from the donor, not the recipient. Surgeons in South Africa and Boston have previously reported successful penis transplants. "Our transplant is different because it's a much larger piece of tissue," said Dr.

Raymond Wolters: My Journey to Race Realism
August 10, 2015
Luke Ford

From 1944 until 1956, I attended Catholic schools in Los Angeles County. I mention this because the Catholic school curriculum of the 1940s and 1950s differed from the standard fare in public schools. Both school systems taught students to read, write, and cipher. But many public schools also adopted a social science curriculum that was intended to combat racial prejudice by showing that race was a historical and social construction, or myth, rather than a meaningful way to describe human diversity. Designed by Franz Boas and his disciples, this curriculum maintained that there was no scientific proof that race influenced the distribution of behavior, intelligence, or personality; that culture was more influential than race in determining the behavior of individuals; that “opportunities” were more important than “biology” in determining success. Boas acknowledged that his program, which was funded by the American Jewish Committee (AJC), was a form of propaganda. But so many schools adopted this curriculum between the late-1930s and the mid-1950s that Boas succeeded in revising the prevailing views about race. He showed, as Margaret Mead has noted, that it was “well within the power of educational leaders” to change “the climate of opinion in which young people are reared, a change which will inevitably have profound reverberations . . . “ Some public school parents and students continued to believe that racial differences were important, but these parents and students also learned what teachers expected them to say about human diversity; and to recognize that adhering to the Boasian gospel would help them avoid a career damaging faux pas.

Those of us who attended Catholic schools, on the other hand, were not taught to mimick Boas. The leaders of our Church (especially in Los Angeles) associated intercultural agitation with the propaganda of the Communist Party, and my teachers, while insisting that all individuals should be treated with respect, said little about racial matters and nothing about social construction. In grade school the nuns taught reading, writing, and arithmetic, drilled students on the Baltimore Catechism, and taught us something about the history of our Church. Then, in my high school, the curriculum was especially strong in math and foreign languages. All students were required to take at least two years of Latin (and two years of a modern language as well) and four years of math. In addition, there were four years of religion and English, three years of history, two years of science, and a year of civics. We learned the geometry of Euclid and were told about the theology of Thomas Aquinas. But we heard nary a word about Franz Boas and his disciples….

By the 1980s liberals were dominant in academia and in the national culture (although not in American politics at that time), and academic liberals had coalesced in support of the idea that racial justice required that students should be assigned by race to create racially balanced, white majority schools. The rationale for this was articulated most influentially by sociologist James S. Coleman. It held that the quality of a school depended largely on its youth culture and that middle-class schools were better. Since “white” was presumed to be synonymous with “middle class” and “black” the same as “lower class,” the purpose of integration was to create schools with enough middle-class white students to shape the prevailing attitudes and a substantial number of lower-class black children to benefit from being exposed to peers who recognized the importance of school work.

It took some courage – or maybe just contrariness – for me to challenge the liberal consensus. But I pointed out that careful studies of test scores did not support Professor Coleman’s theory; that, in fact, the evidence was so strong that Coleman eventually conceded that his theory was, in his own words, mistaken “wishful thinking.”…

              Dolan praises St. Dominic at KofC convention      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Baltimore, Md., Aug 8, 2018 / 03:54 pm (CNA).- The Archbishop of New York encouraged Catholics to imitate the patient and persistent prayer of St. Dominic, during a homily Aug. 8 at the 2018 Knights of Columbus convention in Baltimore.

    “Jesus prefers patient, persistent, persevering, pestering prayer! St. Dominic claims this creates within us a readiness, a space, to receive God’s answer.  We would say such constant prayer exercises our ‘faith muscle,’ which tends to get flabby,” said Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York.

    The cardinal pointed to St. Dominic’s dedication to the rosary and contemplation of the Gospels as daily practices worthy of imitation, comparing St. Dominic’s perseverance with that of the Canaanite woman in the Gospel.

    Dolan also commended the amount of prayer that takes place at the Knights of Columbus’ annual convention, which includes daily Masses, a Eucharistic adoration chapel, and invocations before every event.

    Aug. 8 is celebrated in the Church as the memorial of St. Dominic, the 13th century founder of the Order of Preachers, known as the Dominicans, who spread devotion to the rosary.

    “This towering saint gives us an abundance of attributes to celebrate: his preaching, so renowned that his spiritual sons are called ‘the order of preachers’; his intellect, the spring that gave us scholarly giants such as St. Albert and St. Thomas Aquinas; his zeal, as St. Dominic was non-stop in his teaching, preaching, travel, and work, all for Jesus and His Church,” said Dolan.

    However, he reminded the Knights that prayer was “what generated the renowned preaching, scholarship, and evangelical energy of St. Dominic.”

    After the Mass, the Greek Melkite Archbishop of Aleppo, Syria, Jean-Clement Jeanbart spoke briefly about a pilgrim icon of Our Lady Help of Persecuted Christians, which was then blessed by Archbishop William Lori of Baltimore.

    Lori’s blessing was the kickoff to the Knights’ Marian icon prayer program. The archbishop invoked St. Paul’s words, “though we are afflicted in every way, we are not crushed; though perplexed, not driven to despair; though persecuted, not forsaken; though struck down, not destroyed.”


              Knights of Columbus pledge support for persecuted Christians      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Baltimore, Md., Aug 7, 2018 / 04:00 pm (CNA).- Knights of Columbus Supreme Knight Carl Anderson pledged the fraternal organization’s continued efforts to aid and rebuild persecuted Christian communities in the Middle East, during his Aug. 7 address at the 2018 Knights of Columbus convention in Baltimore, Maryland.

    Anderson also unveiled a new pilgrim icon, “Our Lady Help of Persecuted Christians,” created for the Knights by Italian artist Fabrizio Diomedi. The icon will travel from parish-to-parish across the country to raise awareness, show solidarity, and inspire support for persecuted Christians.

    In his opening remarks at the convention, taking place August 7-9, Anderson said that he hopes that this “pilgrim icon program” will “focus the eyes of our Church on the sacrifice of so many of our brothers and sisters in Christ.”

    Anderson’s remarks highlighted the pivotal role that the Knights of Columbus have played in supporting Christians in the Middle East, where they have committed more than $20 million since 2014 to provide “food, shelter, and clothing to our neighbors who lost everything in Iraq and Syria because they refused to give up their love of Christ.”

    “It is clear that without the support of the Knights of Columbus, Christianity might have died in Iraq,” said Archbishop Bashar Warda of Erbil, Iraq, in a video shown during Anderson’s speech. The Chaldean archbishop’s community was driven from their historic home in the Nineveh Plains by repeated attacks from the Islamic State starting in 2014.

    Vice President Mike Pence also thanked the Knights of Columbus for their support of minorities in the Middle East in a video message shown at the convention. Anderson said that the Knights are working with the vice president to ensure that these minority communnties are included in U.S. and U.N. assistance in Iraq.

    “When the conflict between Kurdistan and the Government of Iraq threatened an ancient Christian town that had just been rebuilt, we alerted the State Department and the White House.  We worked with them to help de-escalate tensions and avoid a bloody conflict that could have ended the Christian presence in Iraq,” said Anderson.

    The Supreme Knight also thanked Archbishop Jean-Clement Jeanbart of Aleppo, Syria, who was in attendance at the Baltimore convention, for his courageous leadership.

    Anderson said that he is challenging the Knights of Columbus to raise $1 million this year to finish a project to provide housing for both Syriac and Chaldean Christian families. The 140-unit apartment building will be called the McGivney House, in honor of Father Michael McGivney, the Connecticut priest who founded the Knights of Columbus in 1882.

    Anderson commended the Knights for meeting last year’s challenge of raising $2 million for the rebuilding of the Iraqi town of Karamles, which he said had been “a Christian town for centuries before ISIS overran it, drove out its inhabitants, destroyed their homes, and desecrated their churches.”

    One Knights of Columbus council in Nebraska, St. John the Baptist Council 10-305, raised $163,000 for the families of Karamles at a dinner and auction.The funds will be used to rebuild more than 80 homes of Christians in Iraq.

    “If we value only self-interest, we will get discord and division. But if we value charity — if we value unity and fraternity — we will build a society where the common good is protected,” said Anderson.

    He highlighted the many other charitable initiatives the Knights have funded throughout the world, including providing for 950 ultrasound machines, 7,649 new wheelchairs, 105,000 new coats for children, and a pilgrimage that brought over 200 wounded veterans and military personnel to Lourdes, France. Last year, the Knights also contributed $4.2 million dollars for disaster relief after hurricanes hit Puerto Rico, Texas, and Florida.

    The Knights of Columbus’ total charitable contributions last year exceeded  $185 million dollars with its members providing 75.6 million volunteer hours.

    Internationally, Anderson also announced that the Knights of Columbus is expanding, with its newest territory in now in South Korea and a new State Council designation for Ukraine. He also noted that the Knights have experienced a considerable growth in membership both in France and the Philippines.

    This year, membership totalled 1,967,585 - a new high, according to Anderson.

    Addressing attendees in the Baltimore Convention Center, Anderson quoted a speech delivered by Saint Pope John Paul II at the Baltimore Orioles Park at Camden Yards next to the center:

    “Catholics of America,” St. John Paul II proclaimed, “Always be guided by the truth — by the truth about God who created and redeemed us, and by the truth about the human person, made in the image and likeness of God.”

              Liberty Heights - Barry Levinson (1999)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    À Baltimore, en 1954. Les États-Unis entrent dans une nouvelle ère et la famille Kurtzman va connaître, de nombreux changements, elle aussi. Le fils cadet qui répond au nom de "Ben" et qui a toujours vécu dans un milieu et un quartier exclusivement juif va tomber amoureux de Sylvia, la seule élève noire de son lycée, contre l'avis du père de cette dernière, pour le motif de la couleur de peau (blanche) de Ben. De son côté, Van, le frère aîné de Ben, est éperdu de la belle et aristocratique Dubbie. Quant au père, il s'efforce de sauver son petit music-hall.

    Liberty Heights est dans la filmographie de Barry Levinson le quatrième film du cycle "Baltimore" après Diner (1982), Les Filous (1987) et Avalon (1990). Ces films s'inscrivent dans la veine la plus personnelle du réalisateur, chacun d'eux recelant une part autobiographique où il se penche sur son adolescence et entrée dans l'âge adulte (Diner et Liberty Heights), premiers pas de sa famille juive et leur quotidien dans l'Amérique du début du siècle puis des années 50 (Les Filous et Avalon). Liberty Heights est une sorte de synthèse du cycle, chacune des storylines creusant un sillon qui constituait la trame entière des films précédents.

    Le fil rouge est le constat d'une Amérique à la fois figée et doucement changeante dans ses clivages à travers les différents personnages. Au sein de la famille Kurtzman, les plus jeunes aspirent à sortir du microcosme de leur communauté juive pour s'ouvrir au monde qui les entoure. Pour Ben (Ben Foster) cela passe par les lois de mixité scolaire qui le verront s'attacher à Sylvia (Rebekah Johnson), jeune fille noire ayant intégré son lycée juif. Pour son grand frère Van (Adrien Brody) cette ouverture sera sociale quand il tentera de se mêler à la jeunesse dorée de Baltimore et tombera amoureux de la belle Dubbie (Carolyn Murphy).

    Levinson oppose les jeunes insouciants et curieux envers l'ailleurs aux adultes rigides par leurs éducations, préjugés et probables souffrances passées qui interdisent tout rapprochements. Chacune de ces deux tendances s'expriment par un humour décapant (Ben déguisé en Hitler pour Halloween, la réaction de sa mère quand il dit trouver Sylva attirant) mais où les barrières n'en semblent pas moins présentes. La tonalité nostalgique expriment ainsi moins une révolution en marche qu'une parenthèse enchantée où l'on s'ouvre au monde à travers une nouvelle culture notamment Ben sous le charme de la musique noire et son humour (James Brown et Sammy Davis jr en tête dont on reconstitue un concert et entend un sketch). Pour Van l'émerveillement que représente la jeune bourgeoisie de Baltimore à travers Dubbie (symboliquement déguisée en fée durant leur première rencontre) va se confronter à leurs penchants autodestructeurs (attachant personnage de Justin Chambers).

    L'inconnu est donc source d'un ailleurs lumineux et festifs ou plus torturé qui se combine dans la trame adulte où la criminalité de petites mains du père 'Joe Mantegna) rencontre celle imprévisible et dangereuse des ghettos noirs avec Little Melvin (Orlando Jones). Avec ses attitudes outrées et son look de pimp, le personnage pourrait sombrer dans la caricature mais au contraire il suinte à la fois la menace et les injustices qui semblent expliquer sans excuser son comportement. Levinson aurait pu verser dans une noirceur plus prononcée avec ce protagoniste mais préfère maintenir une tonalité bienveillante mais où demeure une vraie mélancolie. Au final les différents mondes n'auront fait que s'entrecroiser et même cette timide proximité restera source de crispation (le baiser d'adieu final). Un joli film, l'une des belles réussites de l'inégal Barry Levinson.

    Namı diğer “Turkish Coffee Lady.” Ama ben ona “Türk kahvesinin prensesi”demeyi tercih ediyorum.

    Bu kamyonla 6 ülke, 14 şehir gezdi 20 bin yabancıya Türk kahvesi ikram etti

    KAGİDER Başkanı Sanem Oktar aracılığıyla tanıştım Gizem’le. Çok mutluyum, çünkü nerede şahane bir kadın girişimci var, yollarımız kesişiyor. Gizem, gönüllü girişimcilerden...

    KÜLTÜREL DİPLOMASİ YAPIYOR

    13 yıldır Washington’da yaşıyor ve ülkemizin markalaşma sürecine katkıda bulunmak için “kültürel diplomasi” yapıyor.

    500 yıllık bir Türk markası olan Türk kahvesini yaygınlaştırmak ve daha çok insana tanıtabilmek için 2012’den beri Gezici Türk Kahvesi Kamyonu’yla dünyayı dolaşıyor.

    Ne müthiş, ne şahane bir fikir değil mi?

    Düşünün, bugüne kadar 6 ülke, 14 şehir gezdi o sempatik kamyonuyla!

    Kurukahveci Mehmet Efendi ve Arzum Okka da bu nefis projeye destek oluyor. Tabii ki ona yardımcı olan gönüllü bir ekibi var. Ama yine de deli işi!

    SIRADA LONDRA VAR

    2012’de Amerika’da, 2013’de Hollanda, Belçika ve Fransa’da, 2015’de de Kanada’da 20 binden fazla kişiye Türk kahvesi ikram etti ve zengin kahve kültürümüzü tanıtmaya gayret etti.

    Projesi ABD Temsilciler Meclisi’nde bir dostluk projesi olarak onurlandırıldı, yurtiçi ve yurtdışında birçok ödüle layık görüldü. Bundan sonraki destinasyon da Kültür Bakanlığı’nın desteğiyle, Kasım ayında Londra...

    Tabii Gizem’i yakalayınca sormadan edemedim...

     

    ASIRLARCA ÇOK GÜÇLÜ BİR İLETİŞİM ARACI OLMUŞ

    - Tebrik ederim. Hem faydalı hem yaratıcı bir iş yapıyorsun. Kendi kahvemizi ve kültürel mirasımızı dünyaya tanıtıyorsun. Türk kahvesine bayılan biri olarak çok hoşuma gitti. Böyle bir şey yapmak nereden aklına geldi?

    Çünkü ben de Türk kahvesine bayılıyorum! Tek geçerim! Ve şurası da gerçek ki Türk kahvesi, asırlar boyu çok güçlü bir iletişim aracı olmuş. Dünya tarihinde çok önemli bir yere sahip. Ama ne yazık ki yurtdışında yeterince tanınmıyor. Ben bunu dert edindim. “Tek başıma ne yapabilirim ki?” demedim, benim gibi Türk kahvesi tutkunlarıyla bu gezici kamyon fikrini hayata geçirmeye karar verdim. 2012’den beri dünyayı dolaşıyoruz. 22 aylık bir kızım var, kamyona onu da atıp dünyayı dolaşmaya devam etmek istiyorum.

    - Türk kahvesinin diğer kahvelerden farkı ne?

    Aroma, sunum, pişirme yöntemi açısından birçok farkı var, ama galiba en önemli fark şu: Bugün, dünya çapında bilinen tüm kahve geleneklerinin temelinde yatıyor bizim kahvemiz. Dünyanın ilk kahve pişirme yöntemi 16. yüzyılda Türkler tarafından geliştirilmiş. Telvesinden gelen tadı, damakta uzun süre kalıyor. Kendine özgü pişirme ve sunum tarzıyla da eşi benzeri yok. O yüzden de UNESCO 500 yıllık Türk kahvesini kültürünü ‘Kültürel Miras’ listesine aldı. Ayrıca sağlığa fayda açısından diğer kahvelere nazaran doktorların tercih ettiği bir içecek...

    - Peki Starbucks kültürünün egemen olduğu dünyada işi zor değil mi?

    Zor. Benim de amacım bunun değişmesine katkıda bulunmak. Kamyonumuzla dünyayı gezerken hep yabancı toplumların yoğun ilgisiyle karşılaşıyorum. Türk kahvesinin, eşsiz lezzeti ve geleneksel sunumu doğru şekilde tanıtıldığı takdirde potansiyelinin çok yüksek olduğunu düşünüyorum!

     

    HER GİTTİĞİMİZ YERDE ACAYİP İLGİ GÖRDÜK

    - Kamyon fikri nereden doğdu?

    2008’de ‘ülke markalaştırma’ konsepti üzerine yüksek lisans eğitimi aldım. Tam da o dönem, dünya mutfaklarını Amerikalıların beğenisine sunan yemek kamyonları Amerika’da çok yaygın bir hale geldi. Bu seyyar araçlar bizim için eşsiz bir tanıtım yolu olabilirdi. Ama ne yazık ki Türk mutfağına dair hiç bir araç yoktu...

    - Peki sen ne yaptın?

    2012’de tam zamanlı işimden ayrılarak bir bağış kampanyası başlattım. Kurukahveci Mehmet Efendi’nin ve ATA-DC Derneği’nin destekleriyle, kâr gütme amacı olmayan ‘Gezici Türk Kahvesi Evi - Turkish Coffee Truck’ gönüllüleriyle beraber, 5 eyaleti kapsayan bu kamyon projesini kısıtlı bir bütçeyle hayata geçirdim. Washington, Baltimore, New York, New Haven ve Boston şehirlerinde tanıtım turları düzenledik. Sonra bize bir güç geldi, güvenimiz de yerine geldi. Hollanda, Belçika ve Fransa’yı kapsayan bir tur daha organize ettik. Derken ver elini Kanada, Toronto... Her gittiğimiz yerde acayip ilgi gördük, şimdi Kasım’da heyecanla Londra’ya gitmeyi bekliyoruz...

    KİMDİR?

              La Injusta Venganza De Emely      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Uno de los personajes que mas acapara la atención del Pueblo Dominicanos en estos momentos es Marlyn Martínez, madre del supuesto culpable de la muerte de Emely Peguero, un hecho ocurrido el 23 de Agosto del año pasado que conmovió los cimientos de esta sociedad, cuando esta desaparece en manos de su novio Marlos Martínez y este una vez consumado el hecho o mejor dicho el asesinato recibe el apoyo incondicional de su madre en el desaparecimiento y ocultamiento de la malograda joven de 16 años y la criatura que llevaba en su vientre.

    Por lo que se ve y las pruebas obtenidas en contra del acusado Marlon Martínez es imposible refutar el homicidio voluntario vía ahorcamiento o en el mejor de los casos involuntario como resultado de un intento de aborto fallido e involuntario a manos de su novio y Verdugo Marlon.

    Por otra parte tenemos a la co acusada Marlyn Martínez, madre o mejor aun, madre-apoyadora, de este pichón de sicópata. Esta señora sin arrugársele la cara se para en frente de las cámaras suplicándole a su yerna embarazada que "por favor volviera" cual Jesucristo al tercer día. 

    Según el Vox Populi, traducido al español como "la voz del pueblo" esta señora viaja a la capital el día del crimen y solo regresa a su pueblo una vez consumado el hecho. También se sabe que Marlyn que en su afán de proteger a su único vástago contrato a un pelafustán el cual ayudo en el traslado del cuerpo de la victima a diferentes lugares.

    Es mas, tanta es su culpabilidad que todavía hoy en los juicios televisados se le ve defender al asesino de la adolescente con uñas y garras maternales, es  por eso que la justicia Dominicana debe aplicarle la pena máxima a esta cómplice e imponerle los dos años de prisión que le tocan por ser cómplice en el OCULTAMIENTO del cadáver de Emely.

    Señores la ley no puede gobernada por el Vox Populi, la ley debe ser justa y coherente aunque no sea popular. Lo primero que voy a definir son los crímenes morales de Marlyn: para comenzar no supo criar un hombre de bien, sino aun hombre sin carácter lo cual no lo ayudo en el momento de sopesar las consecuencias de sus actos.

    También se le acusa de burlarse del pueblo Dominicano al implorarle a la fallecida victima que "apareciera" aun ella teniendo conocimiento que esto era imposible pues el olor de la desesperación y la sangre de Emely todavía emanaban de los poros de su vástago, el cual con cara de idiota y "yo no fui" estaba sentado a su lado como todo un mojón!

    Para sellar su condena moral están las fuertes demostraciones de amor que ella todavía de forma irreverente le da a su hijo en los tribunales cada vez que se "topetan".

    Ahora bien quitémonos las mascaras de jueces morales e hipócritas de todos los que quieren ver la cabeza de esta mujer rodar en la corte cual coliseo romano. 
    Nada de lo que ha sido acusada moralmente es punible por la ley, ni ser ma'i apoyadora, ni viajar a la capital el día de la desgracia, tampoco es ilegal decirle a su hijo rico que resolviera su problema con respecto a la muchachita barrial, la cual su madre hoy muy acongojada y haciendo lujo de un dominio escénico pide justicia para su hija y 20 millones de pesos para ella claro esta. 

    Acaso no es la mama de Emely culpable de amoralidad al dejar a su hija de 11 años meterse en una relación física-amorosa con un joven 5 años mayor que ella? 

    Entonces la lógica solo nos deja una conclusión muy clara: ninguna madre rica quiere parir pobres y todas las madres pobres quieren parir ricos, esta no fue la excepción.

    La justicia Dominicana no puede ser manejada por los medios de comunicación y mucho menos por ustedes los allantosos morales, dueños de una doble cara y en ocasiones hasta una doble vida, es por eso que te pregunto a ti que en este momento estas leyendo estas líneas con las cejas paradas cual juez Ingles del renacimiento, lo siguiente: si tu hijo/a comete un crimen ya sea de esta calidad o por ejemplo que esconda un kilo de drogas en tu casa, llamarías a la policía y lo/a entregarías?

    Antes que contestes te dejo con mi contra respuesta: JABLADOR!

              A couple reasons why Elon Musk could actually pull off his wild plan to take Tesla private (TSLA)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    elon musk

    • Elon Musk's plan to take Tesla private has generated a lot of buzz, and it has been met with a lot of skepticism
    • But there are several reasons why he might actually be able to pull off the deal.
    • He's got a few things going for him, including a market with mountains of uninvested cash, an army of believers, and ties to some massive backers that could help him make his plan a reality. 

    Since setting Wall Street ablaze on Tuesday with an unexpected tweet about taking his car company Tesla private, Elon Musk has been met with a healthy dose of skepticism over his proposed plan as well as his unconventional method of announcing it. 

    Analysts are taking Musk at his word that he has indeed secured funding, has investor support, and is seriously considering taking the company private — he could face serious legal consequences if he wasn't entirely truthful. But many nonetheless find the $420 a share price tag he's floated exceptionally high given that Tesla ended trading on Wednesday at $370.34 a share.

    It would be the largest buyout of all time and would require gargantuan amounts of capital to complete at the more than $70 billion valuation implied by Musk's tweet. The company would need roughly $57 billion in committed financing to buy up the 80% of the company Musk doesn't own, according to Goldman Sachs estimates. 

    "We don't believe the current fundamentals of Tesla support a valuation anywhere close to $420 per share," Cowen analyst Jeffrey Osborne said. He set a price target of $200.

    Colin Langan at UBS set a target of $195, taking an even more dubious view: "Disclosing news of this nature via Twitter is unprecedented and, according to a former SEC chairman, may constitute fraud if Tesla does not already have the financing lined up.

    "The deal would likely require participation from numerous banks and institutional investors, and we think it likely that news of the deal would have leaked had Tesla already held discussions to secure funding," Langan added.

    In short, the skepticism around Musk's proposed deal is abundant.

    So let's focus instead on a couple reasons why he might actually be able to pull it off.

    Lots of capital sloshing around

    Musk's take-private of Tesla would be unprecedented. 

    But so is the amount of capital available for investment right now — a byproduct of the ultra-low interest rate environment the decade following the financial crisis.

    Private equity shops having been accumulating record amounts of dry powder as funding remains plentiful while smart deals are comparatively scarce. Pitchbook estimated in March that PE funds had amassed nearly a trillion in undeployed funds.  

    Sovereign wealth funds and other large backers, such as Japanese investor SoftBank, have billions in cash to throw around and the appetite to do so, too. 

    A market ripe with cash looking to be invested is ideal for Tesla's charismatic leader.

    "Right now there is so much money sloshing around the system that has no place to go," Rita McGrath, a professor at Columbia Business School, told Business Insider.

    As McGrath sees it, there are two types of Tesla investors: Those who view the company as just another car company, akin to Ford or General Motors. These tend to be the skeptics.

    Then there are those who believe the company is on the cutting edge of batteries, energy transmission, and renewable energy and that "owning Tesla is a front-seat ticket to whatever the future holds."

    An investment like Musk is seeking would carry a lot of risk given the rich price tag, but for those in the latter camp who believe Tesla offers incredible upside, that may be a bet worth making "if you've got nothing else to do with that cash."

    Forget about the debt

    Many have pointed out that the math on a leveraged buyout for Tesla looks dicey. The company doesn't generate enough free cash flow to justify massive amounts of additional debt burden, which would create crushing interest payments for company. 

    Given the cash-flow pressures and the ongoing Model 3 ramp-up, "adding as much as $50 billion of net debt to the capital structure would clearly intensify the outcomes of such an action," Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas wrote. 

    "Given Tesla's financials, we don’t believe lenders would sign up to support the deal," RBC's Joseph Spak added. 

    But people shouldn't be viewing this as a potential LBO, according to David Erickson, a lecturer at the Wharton School.

    The deal would instead be a debt-light transaction focused on converting existing public shareholders into private shareholders, and then raising enough additional equity to cash out the shareholders that want to exit.

    "What it would have to be, predominantly, is an equity take out," said Erickson, who spent 25 years on Wall Street, including several years as the global co-head of equity capital markets at Barclays. "They would have to come up with enough cash to monetize whoever doesn’t want to stay in. Most of that I would assume would be equity related." 

    Getting a large chunk of existing shareholders to convert isn't that far-fetched. Large mutual funds have grown increasingly willing to invest in promising private companies.

    As Musk himself has pointed out, Fidelity, the third-largest Tesla shareholder with an 8% stake, has already invested in private tech companies, including the likes Uber, Blue Apron, and his own SpaceX. 

    T. Rowe Price, the second-largest shareholder with a 9% stake, has as well.

    While funds that hold Tesla stock in their publicly traded indexes would be different, they could potentially cash out and shift their investment to a different arm of the company. 

    The unknowable question at this point is how many shareholders would want to exit, and how much Tesla would need to raise to cash them out. 

    "Let’s assume $20 billion is required. Is there somebody going to write equity checks for $20 billion?" Erickson asked, noting that Japanese investor SoftBank could be a possibility, as could a sovereign wealth fund.  

    SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son held talks with Musk about a potential investment in 2017, though a deal failed to materialize and discussions are no longer active, Bloomberg reported Wednesday

    Musk has assured us the funding has been secured.

    And it's quite possible it has. 

    Don't sleep on the Saudis

    Who has that kind of money laying around?

    As previously mentioned, private equity funds have mammoth amounts of capital to deploy. However, they tend to prefer companies that already generate gobs of cash rather than those that are still rapidly burning it as they carve out a business model. 

    A large private investor or a sovereign wealth fund are considered more likely candidates, with many suggesting the aforementioned SoftBank and the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia as potential suitors.

    The Saudis could make for a particularly good fit.

    Under the direction of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the country has been trying to reduce its dependence on its vast oil reserves and diversify its income streams. The much ballyhooed initial public offering of state oil giant Saudi Aramco has yet to materialize as a solution.

    "The Saudi angle is interesting to me. Their existential problem is their whole economy is based on oil," McGrath said.

    Tesla's rich price could seem justifiable to the Saudis if they believe Tesla isn't just car company, but rather a bet on the future that hedges their oil riches with a "window into batteries and renewable energy," McGrath said. 

    And there's evidence that of the two types of Tesla investors that McGrath highlights, the Saudis are Musk believers: The Financial Times reported Tuesday that the Saudi sovereign wealth fund had acquired a nearly 5% stake in Tesla. 

    Would they be willing add substantially to that stake? Or would several other large players need to step up as well?

    Musk has a great track record of wooing big investors to back his projects. Even so, it still won't be easy. 

    "He'll have to convince an awful lot of people with very deep pockets," McGrath said.

              Civil War 2.0 Looms, But It Won't Be A Race War      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Authored by Kevin Barrett via Unz.com,

    When we get tired of blowing up Muslims for Israel, will we turn on ourselves?

    Scenarios for a second American Civil War have existed ever since the first one ended. Some hyperbolists called Reconstruction the Second Civil War. Alt-history novelists have imagined the ascension of Huey Long or George McGovern to the presidency as Civil War II trigger. The real-life (?!) ascension of Trump has inspired similar fantasies, leading red state partisans to gleefully thump their chests and imagine how easy and fun it would be to take San Francisco—a fantasy that triggers the hell out of the SF-based blue staters.

    How might civil unrest spill over into civil war?

    One common scenario is race war. The late Charles Manson, we are told, staged his killer-hippie mass knifings because he thought the Beatles were sending him secret orders to start a black-vs. white apocalypse. Obviously Manson must have been taking some really, REALLY bad acid while playing Beatles records backward in hopes of hearing John sneering “Paul is dead”—then suddenly grokked that the White Album, whose mysterious title does not appear on the record and makes no sense anyway, is really about white power! Manson lieutenant Tex Watkins explained: “and what it (the song ‘Helter Skelter’) meant was the Negros were going to come down and rip the cities all apart…Before Helter Skelter came along, all Charlie cared about was orgies.”

    Though Manson was a raving nut, his vision of race war was inspired by contemporary reality. Indeed, while the hippies carried on with their orgies, “the Negros” did rip cities apart. Even before the Deep State murdered Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., blacks in New Jersey, Detroit, Minneapolis, and many other cities had been tearing things up and burning neighborhoods down. The “Long, Hot Summer” of 1967 featured 159 race riots in dozens of US urban centers, and elements of the National Security State were drawing up contingency plans for a race based civil war.

    William Pepper - the King family’s attorney who proved in a court of law that the CIA, FBI, and US army killed Dr. King with the help of their organized crime assets - once spoke with a US Army Colonel who admitted to helping plan the assassination. The Colonel said that the military had done extensive focus group style interviews with participants in the 1967 race riots and determined that Dr. King’s charisma was the biggest factor driving the riots. Counterintuitively, the apostle of nonviolence was inspiring the psychological liberation of black people in such a way that a certain percentage felt empowered to act out their repressed anger. So when King determined to bring half a million followers to Washington, DC and stay there until the feds pulled out of Vietnam and declared a real war on poverty, the Colonel and his friends immediately envisioned the nation’s capital erupting into mass violence that could spread nationwide on a scale many orders of magnitude beyond what had happened during 1967’s Long Hot Summer, perhaps precipitating a real civil war culminating in the revolutionary overthrow of the American State. This, the Colonel explained to Pepper, was the primary reason King had to be terminated…with extreme prejudice.

    Predictably, the Deep State’s murder of Dr. King did not solve the racial violence problem. The assassination itself set off a wave of new riots in cities including Chicago, Baltimore, and - sorry, Colonel - Washington, DC. White-dominated forces of the State retaliated with escalating repression. Black communities felt increasingly under siege, and have continued to feel that way until the present day. Whether it is panicky white police shooting down black people during traffic stops, on sidewalks, or in the black people’s own backyards, or whether it is black people “acting out” against whites (an interesting and under-reported case is the possibly-Cointelpro-orchestrated[*] Zebra killings discussed here by Ron Unz) the simmering racial violence in America is a seemingly unavoidable component of most projections for a New Civil War.

    Most red state vs. blue state scenarios, of course, have a race war component. When Trump’s red-staters invade San Francisco, for example, it will not only be to punish the latté liberals and happy homos for their mushy-headedness and luxuriously deviant lifestyles, but more importantly to “make America white again” by ending the sanctuary city movement and deporting the illegal immigrants…while presumably also putting any black people who have managed to remain in America’s highest-rent city, as well as the déclassé ones across the Bay, in their properly subservient place. In other words, just as the first Civil War was really about race (i.e., slavery) the second one will build on the same theme.

    American War

    Or will it? Omar al-Akkad’s notable 2017 novel American War begs to differ.

    In El-Akkad’s dystopian vision, the War on Muslims mutates into the War on Southerners—but has nothing to do with race. Instead, the Yankee Terror State turns its savagery against the New Rebels of the Free Southern States because those good ole boys and girls (of all shades of skin pigmentation and sexual preference) refuse to give up fossil fuels, choosing instead to secede from the Union.

    Al-Akkad’s vision of blue vs. red global-warming-driven war run amok in a near-future America that has completely forgotten about the whole concept of race is surprisingly plausible, at least while you are reading it. (Civil War I, after all, was really about economics not race, so why shouldn’t Civil War II also be over an economic issue?) The plot turns on the adventures of Sarat, a young Red State woman of mixed and meaningless (near-black Chicano and po’ white trash) ancestry who awakens politically and goes after the Blue State occupiers in pretty much the same way the Iraqi resistance went after George W. Bush’s storm troopers.

    Unlike most dystopian science fiction, American War is not just showing us a terrible future that is really an exaggerated (we hope) depiction of the present-day world we live in. Al-Akkad’s fictional 2074 America is not so much a pessimistic caricature of actual 2017 America as a wish-fulfillment dream of Americans karmically reaping what they’ve sown in their War on Muslims, euphemistically known as the “war on terror.” The horrors that Sarat and other southerners experience under Yankee occupation - drone killings, rape, massacres, torture, internment camps, orange jumpsuits - are precisely those that Muslims have been experiencing since the false flag event of September 11th, 2001. Sarat’s fictional resistance, which culminates in a fantastically horrific act of revenge against the Yankees, represents gratifying fantasy payback for the real-life Terror War’s murder of 32 million Muslims, and a prescient and timely warning about what GWOT is likely to lead to. The whole thing is premised on helping the American/Western reader empathetically imagine what the post-9/11 world looks like to Muslims in general and resistance fighters in particular: Al-Akkad fosters empathy and identification with our victims by casting the archetypal victim-turned-resistance-fighter as ordinary American rather than exotic foreigner.

    Zone 23

    An even better dystopian “new civil war” novel, C.J. Hopkins’ Zone 23, hasn’t yet garnered the kind of mainstream support that helped American War collect positive reviews in such outlets as The New York Times, win awards, and generally get noticed and sell plenty of copies.

    Perhaps that shouldn’t surprise us, since Hopkins, a regular contributor to Unz Review, is on the red side in the real red-vs.-blue civil war that is raging all around us. (I’m talking about the red-pill vs. blue pill war, of course, not the phony culture wars thing ginned up by the Deep State.) Omar El Akkad, despite the subversive aspects of his book, is basically a blue pill kind of guy: His global warming alarmism, gratuitous decision to make his heroine a lesbian, denial of the existence of race, and general penchant for victimology (not to mention his complete avoidance of 9/11 truth in a Muslim-POV takedown of the “war on terror”) all go down well with the Establishment.

    C.J. Hopkins offers a deeper, more accurate, vastly funnier, more genuinely subversive vision. His far-future America, which bears an uncanny resemblance to our nightmarish present, features drone-patrolled hyper-surveiled cities, each of which is divided by an Israeli-style Wall complete with Israeli-style checkpoints and incursions featuring Israeli-style killings of hapless untermenschen. But instead of Israelis vs. Palestinians, the divide here is between the Normals on one side of the wall and the Anti-Socials on the other.

    The Normals -  good corporate citizens who are submitting to pharmaceutical and genetic correction so they can work and consume and conform and live meaningless lives like everybody else without batting an eyelash - are conditioned to fear and loathe the Antisocials, who retain enough humanity to rebel, in whatever pathetically insignificant way, against corporatist dystopia.

    Zone 23, like American War, imagines the future as post-racial: Hopkins’ Normal vs. Antisocial divide isn’t about race. But it is, nonetheless, very much about behavioral genetics. In this (not so) far future, the Hadley Corporation of Menomonie, Wisconsin has developed a variant-corrected version of the MAO-A gene. Inserted into embryos via germline genetic engineering, this patented DNA produces “clears”: people who are intelligent but incurious, incapable of emotionally-driven fight-or-flight aggression (including the most common defensive variety), “easily trained, highly responsive to visual and verbal commands,” and so on. In other words, perfect corporate citizens!

    The corporatist state naturally strives to perfect itself, imposing a “final solution” to the ASP (anti-social person) problem by mandating that henceforth no non-genetically-engineered babies may be born. The result is a very one-sided “race war” in which a few antisocial malcontents try to hold out against what amounts to a genocide against “uncorrected” humanity. The plot follows two of those ASP antiheroes as they throw rocks at the Israeli bulldozer of corporatist genocide.

    Hopkins’ ferociously funny yarn is not just a satire on our ever-worsening techno-dystopia. In imagining a genetic basis to the difficulties many of us experience adjusting to hyperconformist “technologically-enhanced” lifestyles, and in portraying individuals struggling and flailing against the uber-civilization around them like flies caught a spider web, Zone 23 resonates with the great critiques of technological civilization. According to this tradition, which runs from Taoist Chinese hermits through Middle Eastern prophets and Marxian critics of “alienation” to contemporary scientists who insist that humans are genetically suited to be hunter-gatherers not high tech city dwellers, we are grossly unsuited for living the kind of lives that most modern humans are, for all practical purposes, forced to lead. Through the Brechtian device of estrangement, Hopkins forces us to recognize ourselves in his beleaguered ASP antiheros.

    The apostles of race war, from Hitler to Charles Manson to today’s ultra-Zionists, are hugely bothered by what they see as a supposed basic and massive incompatibility between races, i.e. broad, loosely-identifiable swathes of the human genome. According to their bleak vision, we are doomed to fight and kill our cousins whose slightly different average genetic profiles mark them as Other.

    Perhaps there is some truth to this notion. Perhaps our nature includes a strong tendency to in-group vs. out-group hostility. And perhaps we tend to divide in-group from out-group on the basis of ascribed ancestry, that is, along tribal lines.

    But those who are hugely bothered by other races (or their own race), like those who loathe people of a different ideology or religion or language, may be getting all worked up over nothing. They may in fact be projecting their own experience of a much deeper alienation. They may simply be natural-born hunter gatherers caught in the trap of modern technological civilization, living fantastically comfortable yet somehow miserable lives, desperately seeking someone Other to blame for their predicament.

    A small-town Ohio police chief ODs on drugs he stole from his own department, a veteran Baltimore cop gets nailed for peddling pills, a TSA worker goes down for participating in a cocaine conspiracy, and more. Let's get to it:

    [image:1 align:right]In Kirkersville, Ohio, the cause of death for the Kirkersville police chief was announced on Monday. Chief James Hughes Jr., 35, died of "acute fentanyl intoxication" after using drugs he stole from his department's evidence room. Police searching his home found packages of heroin, fentanyl, and LSD strewn about his living around, as well as three syringes, one containing traces of a powerful opioid, and another containing fentanyl.

    In Oklahoma City, a now-former Cleveland Police volunteer reserve officer was arrested July 27 after being caught with nearly 160 pounds of marijuana. Terry Browne, 33, was fired immediately after being arrested. He now faces drug trafficking charges.

    In Baltimore, a Baltimore police officer was arrested last Wednesday on drug trafficking charges after Baltimore County police officers observed him making a drug deal in a suburban parking lot. Officer Spencer Moore, a 14-year veteran of the department, and another man were detained, and police found three pill bottles containing over a hundred oxycodone pills in Moore's car. He is charged with possession with the intent to distribute a narcotic, possession of a controlled dangerous substance, and obtaining a prescription by fraud. He is being held without bail at the Baltimore County Department of Corrections.

    In Baker, Louisiana, a now-former probation officer was convicted last Thursday of taking money to rig a city worker's drug test. Peron McCastle, 56, went down after he was recorded telling the worker the test had come back positive, but he had reported it as negative. He then demanded an unspecified sum of money from the worker. He was convicted of public bribery and is looking at up to five years in state prison.

    In Pueblo, Colorado, a now-former state prison guard was sentenced last Wednesday to 60 days in jail for smuggling methamphetamine to a prisoner with whom she was romantically involved. Sarah James, 25, had pleaded guilty last month to a misdemeanor count of possession of contraband. She went down after she was caught coming to work with two packages of meth and a love letter to the inmate in her lunchbox. She admitted to being paid $2,000 on each of three occasions she had smuggled drugs into the jail.

    In Charlotte, North Carolina, a former Transportation Security Administration (TSA) officer was sentenced Tuesday to 25 years in federal prison for participating in a cocaine trafficking conspiracy that introduced large quantities of the drug into North Carolina cities. Jamie Blunder, 50, was convicted of drug trafficking conspiracy and firearms charges. Blunder wasn't accused of trafficking drugs at his airport job, but he did use his TSA position to avoid police detection while traveling.

    Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit ARI SHAPIRO, HOST: The violence in Chicago has been getting a lot of coverage this week. Over the weekend, more than 70 people were shot. So you might be surprised to learn that the homicide rate in Chicago is not the highest in the U.S. According to the most recent FBI data from 2016, Chicago came in number nine among U.S. cities of a quarter million people or more. To talk about how Chicago fits into the broader national picture of gun violence and homicide, Thomas Abt of the Harvard Kennedy School of Government joins us now. Welcome. THOMAS ABT: It's a pleasure to be here. SHAPIRO: If the problem is not worst in Chicago, where is it worst when you look at U.S. cities? ABT: There are a few cities that are sort of perennially at the top of the list in terms of per capita murder rates. St. Louis is currently the nation's murder capital. But cities like Baltimore, Detroit and New Orleans are always near the top. SHAPIRO: And are we talking about

              Joël Dicker: «Me inquieta que la gente no se informe cuando lee cosas en internet»      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Antes de contar sus ventas por millones, Joël Dicker (Ginebra, 1985) tuvo que escribir cinco libros que nadie quiso publicar. Sin frustrarse, nunca cejó en el empeño de convertirse en novelista. Preguntaba, limaba errores, pulía tramas... Tecleó una y otra vez sin descanso, dejando las vacaciones de lado, rechazando las invitaciones de sus amigos; así hasta llegar a «La verdad sobre el caso de Harry Queberc», una obra que se convirtió en un gran fenómeno editorial en 2012. Desde entonces, ya convertido en un superventas del suspense, ha publicado «El libro de los Baltimore» y, ahora, «La desaparición de Stephanie Mailer» (Alfaguara).

    Vuelve con la misma premisa con la que alcanzó el éxito: un crimen pasado que no se cierra, que sigue marcando vidas, que determina el presente.

    El interés de la historia no es tanto el crimen en sí mismo –que no es especialmente interesante porque ya se ha cometido– sino todas las consecuencias que tiene en la vida de la gente que está alrededor y que tiene un vínculo con ese hecho. Y cuanto más tiempo pasa, mayores son las consecuencias, que se van perpetuando. Creo que eso es lo que me interesa realmente: el efecto del tiempo que pasa.

    Y el crecimiento de los personajes, me imagino.

    El corazón de la novela son los personajes. Esta galería de personajes que se encuentran en esta ciudad. El crimen es menos importante, es hilo conductor de la historia, el motivo que nos permite seguir un poco todo, que explica por qué en 2014 se encuentran estos individuos.

    ¿Sigue rechazando la etiqueta de novela negra?

    Sigo dudando. Sí: hay policías, hay una investigación, al final del libro descubrimos el culpable… Pero estos elementos de novela negra no son los que constituyen el libro.

    El libro tiene elementos de suspense, pero desde el primer momento, desde la primera frase del libro, ya intuimos el destino de Stephanie Mailer.

    Es un personaje que da título al libro, pero que dura media página. ¿Por qué es tan importante para darle título a la novela? Porque es el elemento que desencadena todo. Sin ella no hay historia.

    Y solo la conocemos a través de testimonios.

    Bueno, ese es el juego de la narración: un personaje muy presente que está muerto. Y lo descubrimos a partir de los recuerdos de los vivos que cuentan cómo era ella. Es algo metaliterario. La novela es una historia de personajes que, en realidad, no existen. Stephanie Mailer no existe, pero es que los demás tampoco.

    Hay varios momentos en la novela, que transcurren en la redacción de un pequeño periódico local, en los que se lamenta de la situación actual del periodismo. ¿Echa de menos el tiempo en el que todo el mundo compraba el periódico en papel?

    Lo echo de menos. Y me inquieta. Me inquieta que haya gente que no lea periodismo de verdad. Me inquieta que la gente no se informe cuando lee cosas en internet. Por ejemplo, si hay que pagar por un artículo, la gente no lo lee. Sin embargo, cuando vamos a la frutería o a la cafetería, tenemos que pagar por la fruta y el café. Si uno quiere algo que necesita, tiene que pagar. Y no entiendo a las nuevas generaciones que con las películas, con la prensa o con la música no quieren pagar. Quieren que sea todo gratis. Y no puede ser gratis. Si es gratuito, no existe.

    Bueno, en internet también hay contenidos de calidad.

    Pero existe un consumo perezoso, por así decirlo. Hacemos click en los vínculos gratuitos, leemos algo en Facebook sin comprobar nada… Para mí es una locura. Gracias a internet tenemos acceso a los periódicos del mundo entero. A todos. Sin embargo, se hace cada vez menos. Y no entiendo por qué.

    Le preguntaba todo esto porque no sé si hay un periodista dentro de usted. Con solo diez años fundó una revista en el colegio.

    Se ha informado muy bien (ríe). Yo no soy periodista. Tenía esa pequeña revista sobre naturaleza y animales, que duró siete años. El periodismo no me interesaba mucho porque se limitaba a la realidad. Pero me fascinaba escribir algo en mi casa, imprimirlo y mandárselo a los lectores por correo. Este proceso de compartir me gustaba muchísimo.

    La dedicatoria del libro termina con un «¡Leamos!». Es una invitación a la lectura, parece que casi desde un punto de vista lúdico, de «vamos a divertirnos con esto».

    El «¡Leamos!» de la dedicatoria es una invitación a integrar la literatura en la vida cotidiana, a incluirla no solo como placer, sino como fuente de conocimiento, de riqueza. Lo serio también puede provocar placer. No son cosas antagónicas.

    ¿Le preocupa el futuro de la lectura?

    Me preocupa. Estamos en un mundo en el que la gente no presta tanta atención a los demás ni al mundo que les rodea. Están ensimismados, viendo imágenes sobre ellos mismos, encerrados en ellos mismos. Hemos perdido esa costumbre de estar con un libro, de llevar un libro en el bolsillo para los momentos de espera. Y es una pena, porque hay gente que está pagando un gran precio por no leer.

    ¿Qué precio?

    Leí un artículo de un científico noruego que decía que según los datos que maneja el cociente intelectual de los jóvenes está disminuyendo. Y estoy seguro de que es así.

    Si no me equivoco, su madre trabajó como librera: supongo que en su casa no escaseaban los libros.

    Y mi padre era profesor de literatura en un instituto. En mi casa había millones de libros y hablábamos de literatura constantemente. He crecido rodeado de libros. Nunca me han dicho que no podía leer este libro o el otro porque eran de adultos. Todo era posible.

    Ha llegado al éxito muy temprano con «La verdad sobre el caso de Harry Quebert». En una entrevista con este periódico durante su promoción dijo que «el éxito siempre llega después del fracaso».

    Efectivamente. «Harry Quebert» es mi sexta novela, pero las otras cinco fueron rechazadas por las editoriales. Y porque me rechazaron, me preguntaba cómo podría escribir un libro de éxito. Eso hace que Harry Quebert no hubiese podido existir sin los cinco fracasos anteriores, que son importantes. Gracias a los fracasos se avanza, se progresa. Cuando se tiene éxito desde el principio no se aprende nada. El éxito no te da nada. ¿Por qué se ha tenido éxito? No está muy claro. La enseñanza del fracaso es mucho más clara. Te permite avanzar y evolucionar más.

    Bueno, ahora me gustaría saber qué llega después del éxito.

    Cuando no tenía éxito tenía que hacer tiempo para escribir. Hacía sacrificios: no me iba de vacaciones o no me iba a cenar con mis amigos. Una vez que tienes el tiempo, tienes que preguntarte por qué continúas escribiendo, cuál es la razón. Muchas veces no escribo para ver si tengo el mono de escribir.

    ¿Y por qué sigue escribiendo?

    Porque es un acto indispensable para mí. Me devora esa necesidad.

              1969 World Champion Mets Center Fielder: Tommie Agee (1968-1972)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Tommie Lee Agee was born on August 9th, 1942 in Magnolia, Alabama.

    The area has produced the great baseball talents of Hank Aaron, Willie McCovey, Billy Williams, Satchel Page, Amos Otis & Agee’s lifelong friend, Cleon Jones. He grew up playing ball in junior high with his future Mets team mate Cleon Jones.

    Agee was a star athlete at Grambling State University batting .553 (the second highest average in the Conferences history). Cleon Jones was at his house the day all the MLB scouts arrived to attempt to sign him.

    Agee went with the Cleveland Indians signing a deal with a $60,000 bonus. He made his debut in a September cup of coffee in 1962, playing five games going 3-14. The next two seasons he made brief appearances playing in only 13 games each season, hardly hitting at all.

    In 1964 he hit 20 HRs with 24 doubles at AAA Portland in the Pacific Coast League. Prior to the 1965 season he was sent to the Chicago White sox with Tommy John, in a three team deal that included Rocky Colavito & Cam Carreon (Mark Carreon’s dad). He spent most of the year at AAA batting just .228 with 8 HRs & 33 RBIs. He got another September call up to the Sox batting just .158 in ten games.

    In 1966 he was named the White Sox regular centerfielder & finally made his impact. He won hit .273, with 22 HRs, 27 doubles 8 triples 84 RBIs, 98 runs scored (3rd in the A.L.) & 44 stolen bases (3RD in the A.L.). .

    Agee won the Rookie of the Year Award, made the All Star team, & won a Gold Glove while leading the league in putouts , posting a .982 fielding percentage with 12 assists. Agee was a free swinger who would strike out over 100 times five straight seasons.

    In 1967 the Sox were in the pennant race until the last days of the season, falling to the Boston Red Sox in their Impossible Dream season. Agee had a good first half making another All Star team, but his numbers fell off in the second half. He finished batting .234 with 14 HRs 26 doubles 52 RBIs & 28 stolen bases while striking out 126 times.

    The Sox gave up on him, but the new Mets manager Gil Hodges, remembered what he saw of Agee while he was managing the Senators & wanted him as his centerfielder in New York. That December, Agee was traded to the New York Mets along with Al Weis in exchange for Tommy Davis, Jack Fisher, Billy Wynne and Dick Booker.

    Agee was happy to be re-united with his childhood friend from Alabama, left fielder Cleon Jones. In his first at bat in Spring Training he was beaned in the head by Bob Gibson & had to be taken to the hospital. Hodges penciled him in as the Mets starting centerfielder on opening day 1968 and he remained there for the next five seasons.

    Agee made his Mets debut batting third & playing centerfield on Opening Day 1968. In that game he went 2-4, stole a base & scored two run in the Mets 5-4 loss to the Giants in San Francisco.

    After starting out by going 5-16 he then he slumped for two weeks going hitless in 34 at bats finding himself batting just .102 at the end of April. He didn’t hit his first HR until May 10th coming at Wrigley Field in Chicago.

    On may 16th he singled in the bottom of the 9th inning off the Reds Gerry Arrigo to give Tom Seaver the Mets a 2-1 walk off win. Agee struggled mightily his first season in New York, he didn't even hit over the .200 mark until midway through September.

    On June 7th he hit a HR inSan Francisco & wouldn't hit another until August 4th almost two months later. He hit another later in the month then went all through September without a HR or an RBI. He finished up hitting .217 with 5 HRs 12 doubles 3 triples a .255 on base % & 17 RBIs in 132 games.

    Agee continued to hustle, he did steal 15 bases, stayed positive and never complained. He earned the respect of his manager Gil Hodges as well as the New York fans.

    In 1969 he became one of the most important position players on Mets Championship squad. He was moved up to the leadoff position and provided most of their speed as well as power until Don Clendenon arrived in June. On Opening Day he got two hits & drove in two runs against the expansion Montreal Expos who beat the Mets at Shea Stadium 11-10.

    Longest HR In Shea Stadium History: On April 10th, in the third game of the season Agee blasted a tremendous HR to the left field Upper Deck Section 48 at Shea Stadium. It was the longest HR in Shea Stadiums history, estimated at 480 feet, coming off Montreal’s Larry Jaster. No other player has ever hit an upper deck HR in that part of the old ballpark.

    To commemorate the HR, a red & white marker was painted on the spot where the ball landed. He hit two HRs that day leading the Mets to a 4-2 victory.

    Agee was in the middle of most Mets highlights throughout the 1969 season, whether it was with his glove on the bases or at the plate. On May 2nd he had a big four hit day at Wrigley Field, hitting a HR & driving in two runs. In a May 11th double header at Shea against the Houston Astros, he homered in the first game & then hit two in the night cap driving in three runs leading the Mets to a 11-7 win.

    In the week of May 11th through the 17th he was in the midst of a ten game hit streak, as he drove in 11 runs & boosted his batting average up to .313. On June 10th in San Francisco Agee had a four hit day where he clobbered a pair of HRs & drove in three runs in the Mets 9-4 win.

    In a June 22nd double header at Shea, Agee drove in two runs of the first game to help New York defeat Steve Carlton 5-1. In the nightcap he drove in the games only run, helping Jerry Koosman defeat Mike Torrez 1-0.

    On July 3rd he led off the game with a HR, leading the Mets to an 8-1 win over the Cardinals in St. Louis. Agee would hit three lead off HRs that month & set a club mark with four on the season.

    The next day he hit another HR & drove in three runs as the Mets swept a July 4th twin bill & went on to a seven game win streak.

    The next day he July 9th, the night of Tom Seaver's classic imperfect one hit game, Agee helped the cause by driving in the games third run with a double in the second inning. On July 13th he hit two HRs at Shea Stadium to lead the Mets past Montreal 9-7 as he drove in four runs in the contest as well. He helped the Mets take two of three from the first place Cubs at Wrigley Field when he homered in the last game & drove in runs in both wins.

    On July 25th against the Cincinnati Reds, he hit a two run HR in the bottom of the 5th inning, leading Tom Seaver & the Mets to a 3-2 win. He had six HRs with 17 RBIs in July at one point getting his average up near .290.

    In August he was consistent with six more HRs & 16 RBIs, keeping his average at .280.

    On an early August road trip he homered in back to back games in victories at Atlanta to beat the Braves. Then he had a big two hit, four RBI day at the Houston Astrodome & drove in runs in three straight games. On August 19th he hit a walk off HR off the San Francisco Giants & Hall of Famer Juan Marichal, helping Gary Gentry & the Mets to an exciting 1-0 victory. 

    In the first eight days of September Agee hit four HRs two in Los Angeles & then two more on a Shea home stand.

    On September 8th the first place Chicago Cubs came to town with the hot Mets just 1.5 games back. This game would go down in Mets history as "Black Cat Night" as a black cat ran onto the field & glared into the Cubs dugout.

     As the game began, New Jersey born Cubs pitcher Bill Hands knocked down Agee with a brush back pitch to try to send a message. Well the Mets sent a messgae right back, as Jerry Koosman knocked down Cubs slugger Ron Santo when he hit him on the wrist with a pitch, injuring him. The message was don't mess with these Mets.

    In the 3rd inning Agee hit a two run HR scoring Bud Harrelson sending the same message back to Hands & the Cubs. In the 6th inning he singled and stretched it into a double, scoring on a close play at home plate on Wayne Garrets base hit. The Mets won the game 3-2 & were within 1/2 a game of first place.

    The next night Gary Gentry beat the Cubs 7-1 as the Mets took over first place, Agee had two hits, a walk & scored a run in the game.

    On October 1st with the Mets having clinched the NL Eastern division & the Cubs 9 games back the Mets were playing at Wrigley Field. With the score tied in the top of the 9th inning, Agee doubled to score two runs & put New York ahead. Although they couldn't hold the lead, they won the game in extra innings.

    Overall in the 1969 Mets Championship Season, Agee played in 149 games, more than any other position player. He led the team in HRs (26) RBIs (76) runs scored (97) & at bats (565) hitting 23 doubles, with 4 triples, & 12 stolen bases.

    He played an excellent center field; posting a .986 fielding %, making only five errors & nailing seven assists. He was considered for the MVP award coming in sixth overall in the final voting.  

    1969 Post Season: NLCS: In the 1969 NLCS against the Atlanta Braves, Agee hit .357 with 2 HRs and 4 RBIs. He went hitless in Game #1 at Atlanta.

    In Game #2 he went 2-4, hitting a two run HR, off Ron Reed in the second inning.

    In the 7th inning he walked & scored on his buddy Cleon Jones two run HR. In the game, Agee scored a pair of runs as the Mets went on to romp the Braves 11-6.

    Late in that game, Agee was on third base, with the Mets leading 9-6. He attempted a surprise steal of home plate off side arm pitcher Cecil Upshaw.

    As he headed home, Cleon Jones was trying to distract catcher Bob Didier swinging at the pitch. He fouled off the ball with a line shot down the third base line about a foot from Agee’s head. Luckily no damage was done.

    In the pennant clincher Game #3 at Shea Stadium, Agee went 3 for 5, driving in two runs and stealing two bases. In the third inning he hit his second NLCS HR, this time off pitcher Pat Jarvis cutting the Braves lead to 2-1. In the sixth inning, he singled home the seventh & final run of the game off future Met George Stone. The Mets won the game 7-4 sweeping the Braves in three games & advancing to the World Series.

    1969 World Series: Agee led off the 1969 World Series against the Orioles in Baltimore, grounding out to third base, and then went hitless in the first two games. The Series moved to New York and Agee had what Sports Illustrated called “the greatest day any centerfielder ever had in a World Series”.

    He led off the Mets first inning with a HR off the Orioles Jim Palmer, getting the Shea crowd all revved up. Then he made two catches that probably saved five runs and will be remembered forever in Mets & World Series history.

    In the 4th inning with runners on the corners, the Oriole’s catcher Elrod Hendricks ripped a Gary Gentry pitch to left center field. Agee dashed and stuck out his glove, catching the ball backhanded in the webbing & running into the wall to rob Hendricks of an extra base hit. He preserved the Mets 3-0 lead & ended the inning.







    In the seventh inning, the bases were loaded & the Mets led the game 4-0. Baltimore outfielder Paul Blair ripped a shot to right center field. Agee ran back at full speed and made his second spectacular catch of the day. This time a sliding grab on the warning track saving three more runs from scoring. The crowd of 56,335 was ecstatic, and when Agee led off the bottom of the inning he received a standing from the Shea faithful.

    Quotes: "Words can't describe how that made me feel," he said. "I felt like I wanted to hit two home runs in that one time at bat."

    The catches immediately were rated among the best in World Series history, along with grabs by Brooklyn’s Al Gionfriddo off Joe DiMaggio in 1947, Willie Mays’ off Vic Wertz in 1954. & Sandy Amoros’ catch off Yogi Berra in 1955.

    Quotes: Agee said after the game. "The homer meant only one run, the catches saved more than that."

    Overall in the Series he only hit .167 going (3-18) striking out five times, hitting the one HR, driving one run and walking twice. Game #3 was the high point of his career and made him a Mets legend. After the Series he was voted the NL Comeback Player of the Year, and enjoyed stardom like many other 1969 Mets.

    He appeared with his team on The Ed Sullivan Show, then appeared with other members of the 1969 Championship Team in a short lived Las Vegas revue singing American standard tunes. In their home town of Mobile, Alabama a parade was held in honor of hometown heroes Agee & Cleon Jones.

    Agee followed up the 1969 Championship season with possibly his best season ever.

    In 1970 he became the first position player to win a Gold Glove in both leagues, and the first Mets player to ever win the award. He led all outfielders in put outs (374) as well as errors (13) while posting a .967 fielding percentage.

    He opened up the season with three hits in Pittsburgh, scoring two runs in the Mets 5-3 win over the Pirates. At the end of April he had a 20-game hitting streak going into May, & later in the summer he had a 19 game hit streak from late June into July.

    On May 19th Agee hit a pair of HRs against the Montreal Expos, leading New York to a 7-4 win. On a seven game June home stand he hit five HRs & drove in ten runs, getting 14 hits while scoring ten runs. Overall in the first three weeks of June he hit nine HRs, giving him 15 for the year among the league leaders. In the month he also drove in 28 runs, with 11 multi RBI games.

    On Monday night July 6th at Shea Stadium, Agee hit for the cycle in a game against the St. Louis Cardinals. He singled in the first, then scored a run. In the bottom of the 4th he blasted a three run HR off Jerry Reuss, putting the Mets up 6-0. In the next inning he doubled, driving in Al Weis & then tripled off Frank Linzy in the home 7th. Quite a day for Agee in the Mets 10-3 win.

    Two weeks later he had another four hit day in Los Angeles and was batting above .290. On July 24th Agee reached base in the bottom of the 9th inning, on a fielder's choice grounder in a 1-1 game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. He stole second base & reached third on a Jim Brewer wild pitch. Then with Cleon Jones aboard he got a great jump & stole home plate to score the winning run. After a seven week drought without any HRs, he blasted two round trippers on August 23rd leading the Mets past the Cincinnati Reds 5-4. 

    In September he kept the Mets in the pennant race ending the season by hitting safely in 13 of the last 15 games, including nine straight to end the year. The Mets stayed in the race but faded in the final week of the season, after being as close as 1.5 games back on September 22nd.

    In 1970 he led the club in hitting with career highs in batting (.286) HRs (24) doubles (31) runs scored (107) at bats (638) & slugging percentage (.469).

    He set a Mets record stealing 31 bases (6th in the league) that stood until 1977. He also had career drove in 75 runs with a .344 on base % He received votes for the MVP Award as well coming in at 19th.

    In 1971 Agee drove in a run on Opening Day against Montreal's Rookie of the Year Carl Morton, helping Tom Seaver to a 4-2 victory. On April 24th he hit a grand slam HR at Wrigley Field against Milt Papas & the rival Cubs.

    On May 3rd as the Cubs came to Shea Stadium, Agee hit a walk off game winning single off Chicago's Ken Holtzman, scoring Jerry Grote. During the next home stand he had back to back HR games while leading the club in wins. In June he was batting .280 when he injured his knee & missed almost three weeks of action.

    In the August he had a three hit game in the Mets 20-6 win over the Braves at Fulton County Stadium. On August 28th in the second game of a double header against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Agee singled home Duffy Dyer in the bottom of the 8th inning off pitcher Jim Brewer. The Mets won it on a Cleon Jones walk off HR in the 9th.

    The next day it was Agee's turn to be the walk off hero, this time in a pinch hitting role. He singled off Dodger pitcher Bill Singer in the bottom of the 9th driving in Ken Singelton with the game winning run.

    By September 3rd the Mets were 11 games back of the Pittsburgh Pirates & Agee went down with another injury, keeping him out of action for two weeks. Agee finished the 1971 season batting .285, second on the club to Cleon Jones. He tied for the team lead in HRs with 14 HRs, also hitting 18 doubles with 50 RBIs & 58 runs scored with a .362 on base % (third on the club). Agee stole 28 bases & tied with Bud Harrelson for 4th most steals in the league.

    By 1972 Agee’s career was already winding down at the age of 30. In Spring Training, Manager Gild Hodges passed away from a sudden heart attack & the Mets family was in shock. Agee took it hard as did almost all of his team mates.

    The season began a bit late as a players strike delayed the home Opener until April 15th. That day the Mets retired Gil Hodges uniform #14 and beat the Pittsburgh Pirates on a Tom Seaver 4-0 shut out.

    On April 28th in Los Angeles, Agee had another big moment coming at Dodger pitcher Jim Brewers expense. He hit a grand slam HR leading Rookie of the Year Mets pitcher; Jon Matlack to a 6-1 win.

    In May Mets Owner Mrs. Joan Payson acquired her favorite player, the veteran Willie Mays from the San Francisco Giants. Although Mays was over forty, he was a huge fan favorite & took playing time away from Agee. On May 21st in with the Mets down 3-0 in Philadelphia, Agee hit a two run HR in the 6th off Steve Carlton scoring Willie Mays. In the top of the 8th Mays then hit a two run HR leading New York to a 4-3 win.

    On June 6th, his 7th inning RBI single ended up being the game winner in a 3-2 win over The Big Red Machine. But Knee injuries were also setting Agee back. He would miss three weeks of action in July & after peaking at .300 at the end of May, he dropped off to only hit .228 on the year. In August he hit HRs in three straight games, including an extra inning game winner off the Cubs Burt Hooton in Chicago's Wrigley Field.

    On September 24th, Agee hit a 1st inning HR off The Phillies Steve Carlton. The only other run of the game was driven in by rookie Lute Barnes, helping Tom Seaver out duel Carlton 2-1, for his 19th win of the year.

    On September 29th Agee drove in his last career Mets run, it was the only run of a 1-0 game where Tom Seaver earned his 20th win of the year, beating the Pirates Nelson Briles at Three Rivers Stadium. He would play his last Mets game on October 4th 1972.

    Agee will always be remembered as one of the most popular Mets & a Shea favorite. In 1972 Agee played the least amount of games in his Mets career (114) and only stole eight bases.

    He led the team with 23 doubles, and was second to Rookie John Milner in HRs hitting 13. He drove in 47 runs, scored 52 runs & posted a .317 on base %. That year he led all centerfielders in errors (10) & posted a .962 fielding % while making six assists.

    On November 27, 1972 he was traded to the Houston Astros in exchange for Rich Chiles and Buddy Harris.

    All Time Mets List: Agee has played the third most games in centerfield for the Mets with 591. He is 13th on the Mets all time stolen base list (91) 18th in runs scored (344) 20th in HRs (82) & in the top 25 in hits, doubles & triples. 

    He spent his last major league season platooning for the Houston Astros (83 games) and then the St. Louis Cardinals (26 games). In 108 games he hit .222 with 11 HRs, 8 doubles & 22 RBIs.

    He was traded to the the Los Angeles Dodgers for Pete Richert, but didn’t make the big league club. In way too short of a career, Agee retired from baseball at age 31, during spring training, 1974.

    He finished his 12 year career with a .255 lifetime batting average, 999 hits 130 HRs 170 doubles, 27 triples, 558 runs scored 167 stolen bases a .320 on base % & 433 RBIs in 1129 games.

    In the outfield Agee played 1073 games, 933 in centerfield. He had 2371 put outs, with a.975 fielding % making 61 errors & 53 assists.

    Quotes: “When you win in New York, it just happens to carry on. Every day I walk around the city and people stop me and want to talk about 1969. They remember some home run I hit or the time I stole home in the 10th inning. They remember that team.”                     

    Retirement: Agee went into business running his own Restaurant called the Outfielder's Lounge, located on Astoria Blvd. near Shea Stadium. After that he also worked for the Stewart Title Insurance Co. in New York City.

    He married Maxine Agee in 1985; his best man was friend & teammate Cleon Jones. Agee had Art Shamsky on standby to fill in, just in case Cleon didn’t show, since Cleon was running very late.

    Passing: In 2001, Tommie Agee collapsed while walking out of a midtown Manhattan office building. Emergency medical service workers found him in cardiac arrest and attempted to work on him. They used a defibrillator en route to Bellevue Hospital, but could not resuscitate him. He passed away at age 58.

    Teammates from the 1969 Amazing Mets (Tug McGraw, Ed Charles, Ed Kranepool, Art Shamsky, Bud Harrelson, and Donn Clendenon) served as pallbearers during his funeral service in Mt. Vernon, New York.

    Ed Charles, his friend & the third baseman on the 1969 championship team, spoke on behalf of the Mets during the service. "In that miraculous year of 1969, he was very special to us. I can't recall anyone who ever said a bad word about Tommie Agee, or anyone that wasn't taken by that disarming smile of his."

    Quotes: “Forget teammates. Teammate was over a long time ago. He was a friend."-Ed Kranepool, who did a lot of charity events with Agee. "He was a great friend and the way he conducted himself after his playing days were over was admirable. He's gone way too soon," Ron Swoboda.

    Honors: Agee was inducted into the Mets Hall of Fame in 2002. His widow & daughter were invited as he was honored at the closing ceremonies of Shea Stadium in 2008. Agee is third all time in Mets games played in centerfield (591) he is 13th in stolen bases (92) & ranks in the top 25 in most other categories.

    Damn right. And the thin blue line is being erased in places like Baltimore and Chicago, and we're seeing the results. But we don't need police. The hue-and-cry worked great 800 years ago in England, and the posse and the vigilance committee worked great in the West 150 years ago, so why not try them again? It also saves money and time, since nobody will go to court. They'll just be killed on the spot. Ah, the good old days. . . .
              Twig Harper & Bill Nace - Live at Dreamland (Open Mouth, 2018) ****      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    By Nick Metzger

    Live at Dreamland is a writhing, oozing, viscous specimen of electronic free improvisation by two of the Northeast-US’s true maestros. I first became aware of guitarist Bill Nace through his Vampire Belt collaboration with Chris Corsano. YouTube videos of their early shows prompted me to mail-order their first two self-produced CDRs and I’ve been a fan of their post-Blue Humans style clamor ever since. Besides Vampire Belt (and various Vampire Belt + 1 configurations), Nace has worked with a diverse cast of talent ranging from his collaborations with the Italian psych jazz powerhouse Jooklo Duo to Body/Head, to his free guitar duo with Kim Gordon, to his collaboration with the poet and writer Charles Plymell on Apocalypse Rose. He also runs Open Mouth Records, which has released fantastic music in ultra-limited editions for well over a decade now. Contemporary psychonaut Twig Harper (formerly of Nautical Almanac) is originally from the same 90's noise/total music scene that produced Wolf Eyes and Andrew W.K. among others. Following his relocation to West Baltimore he established Tarantula Hill which hosts local bands and serves as the headquarters for his isolation tank business. If you’re not familiar with Harper’s work, his Intuitive American Esoterica trilogy is a great place to start. The two men toured together last year, this record being a documentation of their performance at Louisville’s sadly-since-closed Dreamland venue (recorded by the most-affable Tim Barnes).

    The piece begins with a swelling tape loop over which percussive noises and disembodied moans intermingle. Bowed guitar joins as the vocalizations intensify and are stretched out and modulated via Harper’s homemade electronics into an impenetrable kaleidoscope of sound. About half way through the first side the piece slows and becomes more introspective, alternating between drone and silence. Nace then goes in a more direct path, providing metallic popping noises and string scrapes. Harper runs eerie swells over which his electronics jot out their weird logic. Low tones close the first side over a wash of tape delay and feedback. The second half finds our heroes beginning with what sounds like tape loops of breaking glass being eaten by the tape machine. Shaking bells create a ritualistic vibe over which Harper pushes the delay feedback into the red. All of this action throws up a miasma of residual sounds that builds up into a din before succeeding into a section of contemplative drone and scattered echoing horrors. The guitar scrapings coalesce with the specters that Harper has conjured, whirring and humming into silence. Harper provides aftershocks in the form of several jarring electronic spasms, bringing the set to a close.

    Harper and Nace are an interesting pairing given their respective sound palettes, and it’s a little hard to discern who is doing what on this recording at times but that’s not really important. What is important is that it’s a nicely done, well recorded album that documents an interesting coupling of musicians, performing in a fantastic venue, during its final days. RIP Dreamland, you are sorely missed.

              A couple reasons why Elon Musk could actually pull off his wild plan to take Tesla private (TSLA)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    elon musk

    • Elon Musk's plan to take Tesla private has generated a lot of buzz, and it has been met with a lot of skepticism
    • But there are several reasons why he might actually be able to pull off the deal.
    • He's got a few things going for him, including a market with mountains of uninvested cash, an army of believers, and ties to some massive backers that could help him make his plan a reality. 

    Since setting Wall Street ablaze on Tuesday with an unexpected tweet about taking his car company Tesla private, Elon Musk has been met with a healthy dose of skepticism over his proposed plan as well as his unconventional method of announcing it. 

    Analysts are taking Musk at his word that he has indeed secured funding, has investor support, and is seriously considering taking the company private — he could face serious legal consequences if he wasn't entirely truthful. But many nonetheless find the $420 a share price tag he's floated exceptionally high given that Tesla ended trading on Wednesday at $370.34 a share.

    It would be the largest buyout of all time and would require gargantuan amounts of capital to complete at the more than $70 billion valuation implied by Musk's tweet. The company would need roughly $57 billion in committed financing to buy up the 80% of the company Musk doesn't own, according to Goldman Sachs estimates. 

    "We don't believe the current fundamentals of Tesla support a valuation anywhere close to $420 per share," Cowen analyst Jeffrey Osborne said. He set a price target of $200.

    Colin Langan at UBS set a target of $195, taking an even more dubious view: "Disclosing news of this nature via Twitter is unprecedented and, according to a former SEC chairman, may constitute fraud if Tesla does not already have the financing lined up.

    "The deal would likely require participation from numerous banks and institutional investors, and we think it likely that news of the deal would have leaked had Tesla already held discussions to secure funding," Langan added.

    In short, the skepticism around Musk's proposed deal is abundant.

    So let's focus instead on a couple reasons why he might actually be able to pull it off.

    Lots of capital sloshing around

    Musk's take-private of Tesla would be unprecedented. 

    But so is the amount of capital available for investment right now — a byproduct of the ultra-low interest rate environment the decade following the financial crisis.

    Private equity shops having been accumulating record amounts of dry powder as funding remains plentiful while smart deals are comparatively scarce. Pitchbook estimated in March that PE funds had amassed nearly a trillion in undeployed funds.  

    Sovereign wealth funds and other large backers, such as Japanese investor SoftBank, have billions in cash to throw around and the appetite to do so, too. 

    A market ripe with cash looking to be invested is ideal for Tesla's charismatic leader.

    "Right now there is so much money sloshing around the system that has no place to go," Rita McGrath, a professor at Columbia Business School, told Business Insider.

    As McGrath sees it, there are two types of Tesla investors: Those who view the company as just another car company, akin to Ford or General Motors. These tend to be the skeptics.

    Then there are those who believe the company is on the cutting edge of batteries, energy transmission, and renewable energy and that "owning Tesla is a front-seat ticket to whatever the future holds."

    An investment like Musk is seeking would carry a lot of risk given the rich price tag, but for those in the latter camp who believe Tesla offers incredible upside, that may be a bet worth making "if you've got nothing else to do with that cash."

    Forget about the debt

    Many have pointed out that the math on a leveraged buyout for Tesla looks dicey. The company doesn't generate enough free cash flow to justify massive amounts of additional debt burden, which would create crushing interest payments for company. 

    Given the cash-flow pressures and the ongoing Model 3 ramp-up, "adding as much as $50 billion of net debt to the capital structure would clearly intensify the outcomes of such an action," Morgan Stanley analyst Adam Jonas wrote. 

    "Given Tesla's financials, we don’t believe lenders would sign up to support the deal," RBC's Joseph Spak added. 

    But people shouldn't be viewing this as a potential LBO, according to David Erickson, a lecturer at the Wharton School.

    The deal would instead be a debt-light transaction focused on converting existing public shareholders into private shareholders, and then raising enough additional equity to cash out the shareholders that want to exit.

    "What it would have to be, predominantly, is an equity take out," said Erickson, who spent 25 years on Wall Street, including several years as the global co-head of equity capital markets at Barclays. "They would have to come up with enough cash to monetize whoever doesn’t want to stay in. Most of that I would assume would be equity related." 

    Getting a large chunk of existing shareholders to convert isn't that far-fetched. Large mutual funds have grown increasingly willing to invest in promising private companies.

    As Musk himself has pointed out, Fidelity, the third-largest Tesla shareholder with an 8% stake, has already invested in private tech companies, including the likes Uber, Blue Apron, and his own SpaceX. 

    T. Rowe Price, the second-largest shareholder with a 9% stake, has as well.

    While funds that hold Tesla stock in their publicly traded indexes would be different, they could potentially cash out and shift their investment to a different arm of the company. 

    The unknowable question at this point is how many shareholders would want to exit, and how much Tesla would need to raise to cash them out. 

    "Let’s assume $20 billion is required. Is there somebody going to write equity checks for $20 billion?" Erickson asked, noting that Japanese investor SoftBank could be a possibility, as could a sovereign wealth fund.  

    SoftBank CEO Masayoshi Son held talks with Musk about a potential investment in 2017, though a deal failed to materialize and discussions are no longer active, Bloomberg reported Wednesday

    Musk has assured us the funding has been secured.

    And it's quite possible it has. 

    Don't sleep on the Saudis

    Who has that kind of money laying around?

    As previously mentioned, private equity funds have mammoth amounts of capital to deploy. However, they tend to prefer companies that already generate gobs of cash rather than those that are still rapidly burning it as they carve out a business model. 

    A large private investor or a sovereign wealth fund are considered more likely candidates, with many suggesting the aforementioned SoftBank and the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia as potential suitors.

    The Saudis could make for a particularly good fit.

    Under the direction of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the country has been trying to reduce its dependence on its vast oil reserves and diversify its income streams. The much ballyhooed initial public offering of state oil giant Saudi Aramco has yet to materialize as a solution.

    "The Saudi angle is interesting to me. Their existential problem is their whole economy is based on oil," McGrath said.

    Tesla's rich price could seem justifiable to the Saudis if they believe Tesla isn't just car company, but rather a bet on the future that hedges their oil riches with a "window into batteries and renewable energy," McGrath said. 

    And there's evidence that of the two types of Tesla investors that McGrath highlights, the Saudis are Musk believers: The Financial Times reported Tuesday that the Saudi sovereign wealth fund had acquired a nearly 5% stake in Tesla. 

    Would they be willing add substantially to that stake? Or would several other large players need to step up as well?

    Musk has a great track record of wooing big investors to back his projects. Even so, it still won't be easy. 

    "He'll have to convince an awful lot of people with very deep pockets," McGrath said.

              Charlottesville gave momentum to Confederate monument foes      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Pressure to take down America’s monuments honoring slain Confederate soldiers and the generals who led them didn’t start with Charlottesville. But the deadly violence that rocked the Virginia college town a year ago gave the issue an explosive momentum.

    Confederate monuments at public parks, county courthouses and college campuses fell almost daily for weeks after a speeding car killed a woman and injured dozens in Charlottesville on Aug. 12, 2017. The vehicle plowed into a crowd protesting a gathering of white supremacists whose stated goal was to protect a statue of Gen. Robert E. Lee.

    At least 30 Confederate monuments have been uprooted in the year since the Charlottesville clashes, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. Groups including the Sons of Confederate Veterans complain America is purging history. Others say the monuments romanticize the Confederacy and downplay its defense of slavery and racism.

    Many more Confederate monuments remain standing. Seven Southern states have laws protecting them.

    Here’s a look at some key monument battles in Charlottesville’s aftermath.

    Prosecuting a takedown

    A 2015 law in North Carolina essentially prohibits permanent removal of Confederate monuments on public property without approval from state lawmakers. Protesters in Durham took matters into their own hands using a ladder and a rope – and found themselves charged with rioting and vandalism.

    It was Aug. 14, two days after the violence in Charlottesville, when an angry crowd gathered around a monument to Confederate soldiers outside a former courthouse building. A woman climbed a ladder and attached a rope to the bronze statue. Protesters yanked it down.

    The woman on the ladder, 22-year-old college student Takiyah Thompson, was among a dozen protesters charged with crimes in the monument takedown.

    None of the cases stuck. A judge found one defendant not guilty and dismissed charges against two others. On Feb. 20, six months after the statue came down, Durham District Attorney Roger Echols dropped all remaining prosecutions.

    A 2015 state law essentially prevents permanent removal of Confederate monuments unless the General Assembly agrees to it.

    ‘Quickly and quietly’

    Like other U.S. cities, Baltimore began reconsidering its Confederate monuments before Charlottesville gave the issue new urgency.

    After the 2015 slayings of nine black church members in Charleston, South Carolina, by an avowed white supremacist, Baltimore named a special commission that spent a year reviewing four monuments on Baltimore city property. The panel ultimately urged the city to keep two Confederate monuments, with some changes. It advocated removing two others, including a monument honoring Gens. Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson.

    They remained standing for almost another year before Mayor Catherine Pugh ordered all four taken down Aug. 15, 2017, after the violence in Charlottesville. City crews dismantled them in the dead of night.

    The Maryland Sons of Confederate Veterans complained that Baltimore acted without approval from the Maryland Historical Trust. Pugh said waiting would have risked more violence.

    “It was important that we move quickly and quietly,” Pugh said.

    Finding a loophole

    Civil rights groups wanted Confederate statues out of public parks in Memphis, arguing they glorified racism in a city where most residents are black. But Tennessee’s Heritage Protection Act prohibited removing monuments to U.S. military figures on public land.

    Memphis city leaders sought a waiver in 2016 to relocate one monument – a statue of Confederate Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest, who had also been a slave trader and Ku Klux Klan leader. Their petition was denied.

    After Charlottesville’s bloody protests, the Memphis City Council looked for new options. And they found a loophole. On Dec. 20, the city sold the two public parks for $1,000 apiece to a nonprofit group. Almost immediately, the new owner took down the Forrest monument as well as statues of Confederate President Jefferson Davis and Capt. J. Harvey Mathes.

    A judge upheld the move. Tennessee legislators were outraged. They soon amended the law to close the loophole. The state House also stripped $250,000 for Memphis’ bicentennial celebration from a budget bill.

    Monument Avenue

    Take down Jefferson Davis, but leave standing statues of Gen. Robert E. Lee and three other Confederate officers.

    A commission delivered those recommendations in July to city officials in Richmond, Virginia, after spending nearly a year considering five Confederate statues along Monument Avenue in the former Confederate capital.

    Virginia has one of the oldest state laws protecting war monuments. Richmond’s city attorney warned that removing any of the statues would risk fines and possible criminal charges.

    Still, the commission urged removing the monument to Davis, saying its design “most unabashedly” romanticizes the South while downplaying the role of slavery in the Civil War.

    Lee’s monument stands on state property, meaning the city can’t move it. The commission said statues of J.E.B. Stuart, Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson and Confederate naval commander Matthew Fontaine Maury should stay, but with new signs or plaques to add historical context.

    City officials haven’t taken action. Meanwhile, vandals splattered the Lee monument’s base with red paint in early August, about a week before the Charlottesville anniversary.

    Confederate Rushmore

    Carved into a mountainside, the towering Confederate figures of Stone Mountain have shown a rock-solid resistance to the wave of toppling Southern monuments.

    The giant sculpture of Jefferson Davis and Gens. Robert E. Lee and Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson has long made Stone Mountain Park near Atlanta one of Georgia’s top tourist attractions. After the bloodshed in Charlottesville, the Democrat running to become the state’s next governor said it’s “a blight on our state and should be removed.”

    Stacey Abrams would be the first black woman elected governor of a U.S. state if she wins in November.

    Demolishing the granite monument would be tough, and not just because of its imposing scale. Stone Mountain is protected by its own state law that mandates the carving “be preserved and protected for all time.”

    Confronted about her criticism of Stone Mountain at a recent event, Abrams said the sculpture was created “to terrify African Americans.” But she also hedged on whether it should be destroyed.

    “I never once said sandblast, but I did say that we should do something about the fact that we have this massive monument to domestic terrorism without context and without information,” Abrams said. “And I believe absolutely the state should not be paying for a monument to domestic terrorism.”

              Austin stadium vote could trigger Crew SC move to Texas      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    AUSTIN, Texas — Texas’ thriving capital city may finally become a major league sports town. It will just take moving a bedrock franchise of Major League Soccer out of its home turf to do it.

    Anthony Precourt, owner of the Columbus Crew, has been pushing for months to move his team to Austin, the largest city in the country without a major professional sports franchise.

    While the league front office has supported Precourt’s desire to look around for a new city, picking up and relocating from Ohio to uber-hip Austin hasn’t been easy. It hasn’t been a slam-dunk deal in Austin and the state of Ohio is suing to block the move. Fan groups in Columbus have rallied to try to save their team, the 2008 MLS champion which was one of league’s founding clubs when it started in 1996.

    The Austin City Council will vote Thursday on whether to make land available and authorize negotiations for a new $200 million, 20,000-seat privately financed stadium for the Crew. Precourt’s original hopes for a picturesque riverfront location downtown were quickly scuttled, but plans have shifted to build near a fast-growing business, shopping and housing development.

    Other Austin developers are also interested in the site. Several City Council members have questioned whether the stadium is the best use of the land and the vote on the stadium plan is expected to be close.

    If the stadium plan is approved, the Crew will likely chart a course to become the third MLS franchise in Texas by 2019, joining Houston and Dallas. Where the Crew would play until the stadium is built is yet to be determined.

    Precourt has been eyeing Austin since he bought the team in 2013. His purchase agreement included a promise to keep the Crew in Columbus for at least 10 years, but it also had a clause that would let him move to Austin. And before Precourt announced his intention to move, MLS had trademarked Austin FC and Austin Athletic as possible names for a franchise even though the city had not applied for expansion.

    Major League Soccer did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    Precourt noted Austin’s “growing presence as an international city, combined with its strong multicultural foundation” when he first announced plans to explore a move in October 2017. “MLS in Austin could be an ideal fit.”

    The Austin metropolitan area is just over 2 million. The sports scene is dominated by the University of Texas Longhorns, but the city also hosts Formula One and MotoGP racing every year. Its economy centers on state government, the university and the city’s surging role as a major technology hub featuring companies like Dell, Samsung and Apple. Facebook and Google also have offices here and there’s a chance Amazon’s coveted HQ2 could be coming as well.

    Mayor Steve Adler has said soccer would be a “huge success” and a perfect fit for his city, which ranked among the top television markets nationally for watching the World Cup.

    “Soccer would be important for our community because it would bring our city together,” Adler said. “It is also a sport that doesn’t require a stadium with 70,000 people.”

    If the council approves the stadium plan, “the soccer team will come,” Adler said.

    Precourt has complained that Columbus has a lack of corporate sponsors and said the Crew’s current stadium, which opened in 1999 as the first soccer-specific stadium in the U.S., is showing age and needs to be replaced.

    MLS Commissioner Don Garber has said the league is reluctant to see one of the original franchises move, but has also backed Precourt’s desire to look for a new home. Deputy MLS Commissioner Mark Abbott has visited with a partnership in Columbus that is interested in buying the team to keep it there.

    Columbus isn’t giving up the team without a fight . The state lawsuit to block the move cites an Ohio law that owners of teams that use tax-supported facilities and accept state financial assistance must give at least six months’ notice and allow local investors the chance to buy the team. The law was enacted after the NFL’s Cleveland Browns moved to Baltimore in 1996.

    A group of passionate Crew fans don’t want to lose their club. Save the Crew has been collecting pledges from fans to attend games next season, has appealed for a new ownership group to step in and even offered its own renderings for a new stadium in Columbus.

    “The Crew is tremendously important” to Columbus, said David Miller, Save the Crew communications director. “We’re the original team in MLS. This team is a representation of history.”

              Institutionalizing Intolerance: Bullies Win, Freedom Suffers When We Can't Agree To Disagree      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Authored by John Whitehead via The Rutherford Institute,

    “Whoever would overthrow the liberty of a nation must begin by subduing the freeness of speech.” ― Benjamin Franklin

    What a mess.

    As America has become ever more polarized, and those polarized factions have become more militant and less inclined to listen to - or even allow for the existence of - other viewpoints, we are fast becoming a nation of people who just can’t get along.

    Here’s the thing: if Americans don’t learn how to get along - at the very least, agreeing to disagree and respecting each other’s right to subscribe to beliefs and opinions that may be offensive, hateful, intolerant or merely different - then we’re going to soon find that we have no rights whatsoever (to speak, assemble, agree, disagree, protest, opt in, opt out, or forge our own paths as individuals).

    In such an environment, when we can’t agree to disagree, the bullies (on both sides) win and freedom suffers.

    Intolerance, once the domain of the politically correct and self-righteous, has been institutionalized, normalized and politicized.

    Even those who dare to defend speech that may be unpopular or hateful as a constitutional right are now accused of “weaponizing the First Amendment.”

    On college campuses across the country, speakers whose views are deemed “offensive” to some of the student body are having their invitations recalled or cancelled, being shouted down by hecklers, or forced to hire costly security details. As The Washington Postconcludes, “College students support free speech—unless it offends them.”

    At Hofstra University, half the students in a freshman class boycotted when the professor assigned them to read Flannery O’Connor’s short story “Artificial Nigger.” As Professor Arthur Dobrin recounts, “The boycotters refused to engage a writer who would use such an offensive word. They hadn’t read the story; they wouldn’t lower themselves to that level. Here is what they missed: The story’s title refers to a lawn jockey, a once common ornament of a black man holding a lantern. The statue symbolizes the suffering of an entire group of people and looking at it bring a moment of insight to a racist old man.”

    It’s not just college students who have lost their taste for diverse viewpoints and free speech.

    In Charlottesville, Va., in the wake of a violent clash between the alt-right and alt-left over whether Confederate statues should remain standing in a community park, City Council meetings were routinely “punctuated with screaming matches, confrontations, calls to order, and even arrests,” making it all but impossible for attendees and councilors alike to speak their minds.

    In Maryland, a 90-year-old World War I Peace Cross memorial that pays tribute to the valor, courage and sacrifice of 49 members of the Prince George community who died in battle is under fire because a group of humanists believes the memorial, which evokes the rows of wooden Latin Crosses that mark the graves of WW I servicemen who fell on battlefields far away, is offensive.

    On Twitter, President Trump has repeatedly called for the NFL to penalize players who take a knee in protest of police brutality during the national anthem, which clearly flies in the face of the First Amendment’s assurance of the right to free speech and protest (especially in light of the president’s decision to insert himself—an agent of the government—into a private workplace dispute).

    On Facebook, Alex Jones, the majordomo of conspiracy theorists who spawned an empire built on alternative news, has been banned for posting content that violates the social media site’s “Community Standards,” which prohibit posts that can be construed as bullying or hateful.

    Jones is not alone in being censured for content that might be construed as false or offensive.

    Facebook also flagged a Canadian museum for posting abstract nude paintings by Pablo Picasso.

    Even the American Civil Liberties Union, once a group known for taking on the most controversial cases, is contemplating stepping back from its full-throated defense of free (at times, hateful) speech.

    “What are the defenders of free speech to do?” asks commentator William Ruger in Time magazine. 

    “The sad fact is that this fundamental freedom is on its heels across America,” concludes Ruger. “Politicians of both parties want to use the power of government to silence their foes. Some in the university community seek to drive it from their campuses. And an entire generation of Americans is being taught that free speech should be curtailed as soon as it makes someone else feel uncomfortable. On the current trajectory, our nation’s dynamic marketplace of ideas will soon be replaced by either disengaged intellectual silos or even a stagnant ideological conformity. Few things would be so disastrous for our nation and the well-being of our citizenry.”

    Disastrous, indeed.

    You see, tolerance cuts both ways.

    This isn’t an easy pill to swallow, I know, but that’s the way free speech works, especially when it comes to tolerating speech that we hate.

    The most controversial issues of our day—gay rights, abortion, race, religion, sexuality, political correctness, police brutality, et al.—have become battlegrounds for those who claim to believe in freedom of speech but only when it favors the views and positions they support.

    Free speech for me but not for thee” is how my good friend and free speech purist Nat Hentoff used to sum up this double standard.

    This haphazard approach to the First Amendment has so muddied the waters that even First Amendment scholars are finding it hard to navigate at times.

    It’s really not that hard.

    The First Amendment affirms the right of the people to speak freely, worship freely, peaceably assemble, petition the government for a redress of grievances, and have a free press.

    Nowhere in the First Amendment does it permit the government to limit speech in order to avoid causing offense, hurting someone’s feelings, safeguarding government secrets, protecting government officials, insulating judges from undue influence, discouraging bullying, penalizing hateful ideas and actions, eliminating terrorism, combatting prejudice and intolerance, and the like.

    Unfortunately, in the war being waged between free speech purists who believe that free speech is an inalienable right and those who believe that free speech is a mere privilege to be granted only under certain conditions, the censors are winning.

    We have entered into an egotistical, insulated, narcissistic era in which free speech has become regulated speech: to be celebrated when it reflects the values of the majority and tolerated otherwise, unless it moves so far beyond our political, religious and socio-economic comfort zones as to be rendered dangerous and unacceptable.

    Protest laws, free speech zones, bubble zones, trespass zones, anti-bullying legislation, zero tolerance policies, hate crime laws and a host of other legalistic maladies dreamed up by politicians and prosecutors (and championed by those who want to suppress speech with which they might disagree) have conspired to corrode our core freedoms, purportedly for our own good.

    On paper - at least according to the U.S. Constitution - we are technically free to speak.

    In reality, however, we are only as free to speak as a government official - or corporate entities such as Facebook, Google or YouTube - may allow.

    Emboldened by phrases such as “hate crimes,” “bullying,” “extremism” and “microaggressions,” the nation has been whittling away at free speech, confining it to carefully constructed “free speech zones,” criminalizing it when it skates too close to challenging the status quo, shaming it when it butts up against politically correct ideals, and muzzling it when it appears dangerous.

    Free speech is no longer free.

    The U.S. Supreme Court has long been the referee in the tug-of-war over the nation’s tolerance for free speech and other expressive activities protected by the First Amendment. Yet the Supreme Court’s role as arbiter of justice in these disputes is undergoing a sea change. Except in cases where it has no vested interest, the Court has begun to advocate for the government’s outsized interests, ruling in favor of the government in matters of war, national security, commerce and speech. 

    When asked to choose between the rule of law and government supremacy, the Supreme Court tends to side with the government.

    If we no longer have the right to tell a Census Worker to get off our property, if we no longer have the right to tell a police officer to get a search warrant before they dare to walk through our door, if we no longer have the right to stand in front of the Supreme Court wearing a protest sign or approach an elected representative to share our views, if we no longer have the right to voice our opinions in public—no matter how misogynistic, hateful, prejudiced, intolerant, misguided or politically incorrect they might be—then we do not have free speech.

    What we have instead is regulated, controlled speech, and that’s a whole other ballgame.

    Just as surveillance has been shown to “stifle and smother dissent, keeping a populace cowed by fear,” government censorship gives rise to self-censorship, breeds compliance, makes independent thought all but impossible, and ultimately foments a seething discontent that has no outlet but violence.

    The First Amendment is a steam valve. It allows people to speak their minds, air their grievances and contribute to a larger dialogue that hopefully results in a more just world.

    When there is no steam valve - when there is no one to hear what the people have to say - frustration builds, anger grows and people become more volatile and desperate to force a conversation. By bottling up dissent, we have created a pressure cooker of stifled misery and discontent that is now bubbling over and fomenting even more hate, distrust and paranoia among portions of the populace.

    Silencing unpopular viewpoints with which the majority might disagree—whether it’s by shouting them down, censoring them, muzzling them, or criminalizing them—only empowers the controllers of the Deep State.

    Even when the motives behind this rigidly calibrated reorientation of societal language appear well-intentioned—discouraging racism, condemning violence, denouncing discrimination and hatred—inevitably, the end result is the same: intolerance, indoctrination and infantilism.

    It’s political correctness disguised as tolerance, civility and love, but what it really amounts to is the chilling of free speech and the demonizing of viewpoints that run counter to the cultural elite.

    We’ve allowed ourselves to be persuaded that we need someone else to think and speak for us. And we’ve allowed ourselves to become so timid in the face of offensive words and ideas that we’ve bought into the idea that we need the government to shield us from that which is ugly or upsetting or mean.

    The result is a society in which we’ve stopped debating among ourselves, stopped thinking for ourselves, and stopped believing that we can fix our own problems and resolve our own differences.

    In short, we have reduced ourselves to a largely silent, passive, polarized populace incapable of working through our own problems with each other and reliant on the government to protect us from our fears of each other. 

    So where does that leave us?

    We’ve got to do the hard work of figuring out how to get along again.

    Charlottesville, Va., is a good example of this.

    It’s been a year since my hometown of Charlottesville, Va., became the poster child in a heated war of words—and actions—over racism, “sanitizing history,” extremism (both right and left), political correctness, hate speech, partisan politics, and a growing fear that violent words would end in violent actions.

    Those fears were realized when what should have been an exercise in free speech quickly became a brawl that left one activist dead.

    Yet lawful, peaceful, nonviolent First Amendment activity did not kill Heather Heyer. She was killed by a 20-year-old Neo-Nazi who drove his car into a crowd of pedestrians in Charlottesville, Va.

    Words, no matter how distasteful or disagreeable, did not turn what should have been an exercise in free speech into a brawl. That was accomplished by militant protesters on both sides of the debate who arrived at what should have been a nonviolent protest armed with sticks and guns, bleach bottles, balloons filled with feces and urine and improvised flamethrowers, and by the law enforcement agencies who stood by and allowed it.

    This is what happens when we turn our disagreements, even about critically and morally important issues, into lines in the sand.

    If we can’t agree to disagree—and learn to live with each other in peace and speak with civility in order to change hearts and minds—then we’ve reached an impasse.

    That way lies death, destruction and tyranny.

    Now, there’s a big difference between civility (treating others with consideration and respect) and civil disobedience (refusing to comply with certain laws as a means of peaceful protest), both of which Martin Luther King Jr. employed brilliantly, and I’m a champion of both tactics when used wisely.

    Frankly, I agree with journalist Bret Stephens when he says that we’re failing at the art of disagreement.

    As Stephens explains in a 2017 lecture, which should be required reading for every American:

    “To say the words, ‘I agree’—whether it’s agreeing to join an organization, or submit to a political authority, or subscribe to a religious faith—may be the basis of every community. But to say, I disagree; I refuse; you’re wrong; etiam si omnesego nonthese are the words that define our individuality, give us our freedom, enjoin our tolerance, enlarge our perspectives, seize our attention, energize our progress, make our democracies real, and give hope and courage to oppressed people everywhere. Galileo and Darwin; Mandela, Havel, and Liu Xiaobo; Rosa Parks and Natan Sharansky — such are the ranks of those who disagree.”

    What does it mean to not merely disagree but rather to disagree well?

    According to Stephens, “to disagree well you must first understand well. You have to read deeply, listen carefully, watch closely. You need to grant your adversary moral respect; give him the intellectual benefit of doubt; have sympathy for his motives and participate empathically with his line of reasoning. And you need to allow for the possibility that you might yet be persuaded of what he has to say.”

    Instead of intelligent discourse, we’ve been saddled with identity politics, “a safe space from thought, rather than a safe space for thought.”

    Safe spaces.

    That’s what we’ve been reduced to on college campuses, in government-run forums, and now on public property and on previously open forums such as the internet.

    The problem, as I make clear in my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, is that the creation of so-called safe spaces—where offensive ideas and speech are prohibited—is just censorship by another name, and censorship breeds resentment, and resentment breeds conflict, and unresolved, festering conflict gives rise to violence.

    Charlottesville is a prime example of this.

    Anticipating the one-year anniversary of the riots in Charlottesville on August 12, the local city government, which bungled its response the first time around, is now attempting to ostensibly create a “safe space” by shutting the city down for the days surrounding the anniversary, all the while ramping up the presence of militarized police, in the hopes that no one else (meaning activists or protesters) will show up and nothing (meaning riots and brawls among activists) will happen.

    What a mess.

              Institutionalizing Intolerance: Bullies Win, Freedom Suffers When We Can't Agree To Disagree      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Authored by John Whitehead via The Rutherford Institute,

    “Whoever would overthrow the liberty of a nation must begin by subduing the freeness of speech.” ― Benjamin Franklin

    What a mess.

    As America has become ever more polarized, and those polarized factions have become more militant and less inclined to listen to - or even allow for the existence of - other viewpoints, we are fast becoming a nation of people who just can’t get along.

    Here’s the thing: if Americans don’t learn how to get along - at the very least, agreeing to disagree and respecting each other’s right to subscribe to beliefs and opinions that may be offensive, hateful, intolerant or merely different - then we’re going to soon find that we have no rights whatsoever (to speak, assemble, agree, disagree, protest, opt in, opt out, or forge our own paths as individuals).

    In such an environment, when we can’t agree to disagree, the bullies (on both sides) win and freedom suffers.

    Intolerance, once the domain of the politically correct and self-righteous, has been institutionalized, normalized and politicized.

    Even those who dare to defend speech that may be unpopular or hateful as a constitutional right are now accused of “weaponizing the First Amendment.”

    On college campuses across the country, speakers whose views are deemed “offensive” to some of the student body are having their invitations recalled or cancelled, being shouted down by hecklers, or forced to hire costly security details. As The Washington Postconcludes, “College students support free speech—unless it offends them.”

    At Hofstra University, half the students in a freshman class boycotted when the professor assigned them to read Flannery O’Connor’s short story “Artificial Nigger.” As Professor Arthur Dobrin recounts, “The boycotters refused to engage a writer who would use such an offensive word. They hadn’t read the story; they wouldn’t lower themselves to that level. Here is what they missed: The story’s title refers to a lawn jockey, a once common ornament of a black man holding a lantern. The statue symbolizes the suffering of an entire group of people and looking at it bring a moment of insight to a racist old man.”

    It’s not just college students who have lost their taste for diverse viewpoints and free speech.

    In Charlottesville, Va., in the wake of a violent clash between the alt-right and alt-left over whether Confederate statues should remain standing in a community park, City Council meetings were routinely “punctuated with screaming matches, confrontations, calls to order, and even arrests,” making it all but impossible for attendees and councilors alike to speak their minds.

    In Maryland, a 90-year-old World War I Peace Cross memorial that pays tribute to the valor, courage and sacrifice of 49 members of the Prince George community who died in battle is under fire because a group of humanists believes the memorial, which evokes the rows of wooden Latin Crosses that mark the graves of WW I servicemen who fell on battlefields far away, is offensive.

    On Twitter, President Trump has repeatedly called for the NFL to penalize players who take a knee in protest of police brutality during the national anthem, which clearly flies in the face of the First Amendment’s assurance of the right to free speech and protest (especially in light of the president’s decision to insert himself—an agent of the government—into a private workplace dispute).

    On Facebook, Alex Jones, the majordomo of conspiracy theorists who spawned an empire built on alternative news, has been banned for posting content that violates the social media site’s “Community Standards,” which prohibit posts that can be construed as bullying or hateful.

    Jones is not alone in being censured for content that might be construed as false or offensive.

    Facebook also flagged a Canadian museum for posting abstract nude paintings by Pablo Picasso.

    Even the American Civil Liberties Union, once a group known for taking on the most controversial cases, is contemplating stepping back from its full-throated defense of free (at times, hateful) speech.

    “What are the defenders of free speech to do?” asks commentator William Ruger in Time magazine. 

    “The sad fact is that this fundamental freedom is on its heels across America,” concludes Ruger. “Politicians of both parties want to use the power of government to silence their foes. Some in the university community seek to drive it from their campuses. And an entire generation of Americans is being taught that free speech should be curtailed as soon as it makes someone else feel uncomfortable. On the current trajectory, our nation’s dynamic marketplace of ideas will soon be replaced by either disengaged intellectual silos or even a stagnant ideological conformity. Few things would be so disastrous for our nation and the well-being of our citizenry.”

    Disastrous, indeed.

    You see, tolerance cuts both ways.

    This isn’t an easy pill to swallow, I know, but that’s the way free speech works, especially when it comes to tolerating speech that we hate.

    The most controversial issues of our day—gay rights, abortion, race, religion, sexuality, political correctness, police brutality, et al.—have become battlegrounds for those who claim to believe in freedom of speech but only when it favors the views and positions they support.

    Free speech for me but not for thee” is how my good friend and free speech purist Nat Hentoff used to sum up this double standard.

    This haphazard approach to the First Amendment has so muddied the waters that even First Amendment scholars are finding it hard to navigate at times.

    It’s really not that hard.

    The First Amendment affirms the right of the people to speak freely, worship freely, peaceably assemble, petition the government for a redress of grievances, and have a free press.

    Nowhere in the First Amendment does it permit the government to limit speech in order to avoid causing offense, hurting someone’s feelings, safeguarding government secrets, protecting government officials, insulating judges from undue influence, discouraging bullying, penalizing hateful ideas and actions, eliminating terrorism, combatting prejudice and intolerance, and the like.

    Unfortunately, in the war being waged between free speech purists who believe that free speech is an inalienable right and those who believe that free speech is a mere privilege to be granted only under certain conditions, the censors are winning.

    We have entered into an egotistical, insulated, narcissistic era in which free speech has become regulated speech: to be celebrated when it reflects the values of the majority and tolerated otherwise, unless it moves so far beyond our political, religious and socio-economic comfort zones as to be rendered dangerous and unacceptable.

    Protest laws, free speech zones, bubble zones, trespass zones, anti-bullying legislation, zero tolerance policies, hate crime laws and a host of other legalistic maladies dreamed up by politicians and prosecutors (and championed by those who want to suppress speech with which they might disagree) have conspired to corrode our core freedoms, purportedly for our own good.

    On paper - at least according to the U.S. Constitution - we are technically free to speak.

    In reality, however, we are only as free to speak as a government official - or corporate entities such as Facebook, Google or YouTube - may allow.

    Emboldened by phrases such as “hate crimes,” “bullying,” “extremism” and “microaggressions,” the nation has been whittling away at free speech, confining it to carefully constructed “free speech zones,” criminalizing it when it skates too close to challenging the status quo, shaming it when it butts up against politically correct ideals, and muzzling it when it appears dangerous.

    Free speech is no longer free.

    The U.S. Supreme Court has long been the referee in the tug-of-war over the nation’s tolerance for free speech and other expressive activities protected by the First Amendment. Yet the Supreme Court’s role as arbiter of justice in these disputes is undergoing a sea change. Except in cases where it has no vested interest, the Court has begun to advocate for the government’s outsized interests, ruling in favor of the government in matters of war, national security, commerce and speech. 

    When asked to choose between the rule of law and government supremacy, the Supreme Court tends to side with the government.

    If we no longer have the right to tell a Census Worker to get off our property, if we no longer have the right to tell a police officer to get a search warrant before they dare to walk through our door, if we no longer have the right to stand in front of the Supreme Court wearing a protest sign or approach an elected representative to share our views, if we no longer have the right to voice our opinions in public—no matter how misogynistic, hateful, prejudiced, intolerant, misguided or politically incorrect they might be—then we do not have free speech.

    What we have instead is regulated, controlled speech, and that’s a whole other ballgame.

    Just as surveillance has been shown to “stifle and smother dissent, keeping a populace cowed by fear,” government censorship gives rise to self-censorship, breeds compliance, makes independent thought all but impossible, and ultimately foments a seething discontent that has no outlet but violence.

    The First Amendment is a steam valve. It allows people to speak their minds, air their grievances and contribute to a larger dialogue that hopefully results in a more just world.

    When there is no steam valve - when there is no one to hear what the people have to say - frustration builds, anger grows and people become more volatile and desperate to force a conversation. By bottling up dissent, we have created a pressure cooker of stifled misery and discontent that is now bubbling over and fomenting even more hate, distrust and paranoia among portions of the populace.

    Silencing unpopular viewpoints with which the majority might disagree—whether it’s by shouting them down, censoring them, muzzling them, or criminalizing them—only empowers the controllers of the Deep State.

    Even when the motives behind this rigidly calibrated reorientation of societal language appear well-intentioned—discouraging racism, condemning violence, denouncing discrimination and hatred—inevitably, the end result is the same: intolerance, indoctrination and infantilism.

    It’s political correctness disguised as tolerance, civility and love, but what it really amounts to is the chilling of free speech and the demonizing of viewpoints that run counter to the cultural elite.

    We’ve allowed ourselves to be persuaded that we need someone else to think and speak for us. And we’ve allowed ourselves to become so timid in the face of offensive words and ideas that we’ve bought into the idea that we need the government to shield us from that which is ugly or upsetting or mean.

    The result is a society in which we’ve stopped debating among ourselves, stopped thinking for ourselves, and stopped believing that we can fix our own problems and resolve our own differences.

    In short, we have reduced ourselves to a largely silent, passive, polarized populace incapable of working through our own problems with each other and reliant on the government to protect us from our fears of each other. 

    So where does that leave us?

    We’ve got to do the hard work of figuring out how to get along again.

    Charlottesville, Va., is a good example of this.

    It’s been a year since my hometown of Charlottesville, Va., became the poster child in a heated war of words—and actions—over racism, “sanitizing history,” extremism (both right and left), political correctness, hate speech, partisan politics, and a growing fear that violent words would end in violent actions.

    Those fears were realized when what should have been an exercise in free speech quickly became a brawl that left one activist dead.

    Yet lawful, peaceful, nonviolent First Amendment activity did not kill Heather Heyer. She was killed by a 20-year-old Neo-Nazi who drove his car into a crowd of pedestrians in Charlottesville, Va.

    Words, no matter how distasteful or disagreeable, did not turn what should have been an exercise in free speech into a brawl. That was accomplished by militant protesters on both sides of the debate who arrived at what should have been a nonviolent protest armed with sticks and guns, bleach bottles, balloons filled with feces and urine and improvised flamethrowers, and by the law enforcement agencies who stood by and allowed it.

    This is what happens when we turn our disagreements, even about critically and morally important issues, into lines in the sand.

    If we can’t agree to disagree—and learn to live with each other in peace and speak with civility in order to change hearts and minds—then we’ve reached an impasse.

    That way lies death, destruction and tyranny.

    Now, there’s a big difference between civility (treating others with consideration and respect) and civil disobedience (refusing to comply with certain laws as a means of peaceful protest), both of which Martin Luther King Jr. employed brilliantly, and I’m a champion of both tactics when used wisely.

    Frankly, I agree with journalist Bret Stephens when he says that we’re failing at the art of disagreement.

    As Stephens explains in a 2017 lecture, which should be required reading for every American:

    “To say the words, ‘I agree’—whether it’s agreeing to join an organization, or submit to a political authority, or subscribe to a religious faith—may be the basis of every community. But to say, I disagree; I refuse; you’re wrong; etiam si omnesego nonthese are the words that define our individuality, give us our freedom, enjoin our tolerance, enlarge our perspectives, seize our attention, energize our progress, make our democracies real, and give hope and courage to oppressed people everywhere. Galileo and Darwin; Mandela, Havel, and Liu Xiaobo; Rosa Parks and Natan Sharansky — such are the ranks of those who disagree.”

    What does it mean to not merely disagree but rather to disagree well?

    According to Stephens, “to disagree well you must first understand well. You have to read deeply, listen carefully, watch closely. You need to grant your adversary moral respect; give him the intellectual benefit of doubt; have sympathy for his motives and participate empathically with his line of reasoning. And you need to allow for the possibility that you might yet be persuaded of what he has to say.”

    Instead of intelligent discourse, we’ve been saddled with identity politics, “a safe space from thought, rather than a safe space for thought.”

    Safe spaces.

    That’s what we’ve been reduced to on college campuses, in government-run forums, and now on public property and on previously open forums such as the internet.

    The problem, as I make clear in my book A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State, is that the creation of so-called safe spaces—where offensive ideas and speech are prohibited—is just censorship by another name, and censorship breeds resentment, and resentment breeds conflict, and unresolved, festering conflict gives rise to violence.

    Do black and white children who live in assisted or subsidized housing experience different life outcomes? That question was at the center of a new study by Sandra Newman and C. Scott Holupka, two researchers at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore. They combed through federal data on households in public housing or those that received housing vouchers from the 1970s through the first decade of the 2000s. What the pair found was neither straightforward nor surprising. When it came to life outcomes, living in assisted housing didn't predict significant differences in how children turned out because of their race, a big change from decades past. They also found that black and white people living in subsidized housing in the first decade of the aughts were living in homes of comparable quality, which was not true in the past. But while they found parity in the housing conditions in which black and white households lived, there were still wide disparities in the neighborhoods in which

    There are both genetic and cultural causes for the dysfunctional american cities. Note that just liberalism doesn't necessarily lead to social breakdown, e.g. Portland, San Francisco. These are cities with relatively few blacks, and have more or less done ok with low rates of homicide, AFAIK. San Francisco, of course, is buckling under a whole lot of other problems of the liberals' making. But still, at the moment loads better than the black liberal havens of Baltimore, Detroit, and Chicago. As Paul Marks mentioned, the cultural collapse of white civilisation will eventually bring down white liberal cities as well. It's just a matter of time. Then we have the cities with a high proportion of blacks, with high crime and murder rates. https://rapidcityjournal.com/news/national/the-cities-with-the-highest-murder-rates-in-the-us/collection_0e7dd367-2f62-5822-b849-97f4e9a43e3d.html#24 That's not a coincidence. The characteristics of blacks Bob Sykes mentioned - IQ’s in the 70’s (genetically fixed), high impulsivity, proclivity to violence, can be controlled, and were indeed controlled, as recently as the 50s. Then the Great Society, the welfare state, the collapse of traditional religion, all acted to release the innermost id of the black population. Which brings us to New York. New York's liberal order does not tolerate threats to its safety, power and prosperity, despite what BLM and SJWs say. Stop-and-frisk policies, stringent laws (Eric Garner was essentially killed over selling single cigarettes, which was ridiculous) serve to keep the black population under control, and even to drive them out into other cities (look up AFFH) so that the liberals can enjoy urban living free from the threat of black crime. A similar gentrification effect is going on in Washington, and if rumors are believed, Chicago. When conditions are bad enough, anybody will succumb to chaos and disorder, no matter what their genetics are, just how long to get there and how bad it would be. E.g. the east asians (especially chinese) in the US seem pretty productive and civilised now, but it wasn't that long ago that the Cultural Revolution and its excesses were going on. It's just that blacks succumb the quickest. Is there any high black proportion city NOT controlled by Dems that can serve as a counter-example? Or can we also say that the propensity of blacks to vote Dem is emblematic of their id problems?

              Once a teacher, always a teacher: Elizabeth Warren's lesson of persistence for progressives      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Last week at Netroots Nation in New Orleans, I had the opportunity to speak with Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren. A well-beloved figure among progressives and the Daily Kos community, Warren graciously agreed to give us some time before her speech to ask a few questions about her background, priorities for Congress, and what she’s most proud of accomplishing in the Senate.

    You can watch the full interview below the fold.

    I really enjoyed speaking with her. As you can see, she’s thoughtful, incredibly smart, and really grounded in the values of justice and fairness. While everything she said gave me a lot to think about, I particularly appreciated her answer to my first question about how her time as an educator informs her political priorities. As someone who never planned to go into teaching as a career, I found myself teaching Spanish in Baltimore City Public Schools after college through Teach for America. I felt called to do that work based on all that I had learned and experienced regarding educational inequality and its disproportionate impact on children of color around our country. I never really left education, having stayed in the classroom for five years and then going on to work in and teach at the university level, which I still do part-time.

    I wholeheartedly agree with Sen. Warren when she says that teachers invest in the future. Though we don’t pay them nearly what they are worth nor give them all the resources they need to be successful, teachers are on the front lines every day giving young people a chance at becoming better and more thoughtful human beings, community members, and global citizens.

    It’s also quite clear from listening to her that she understands what’s at stake for our country’s future if we don’t fix what’s broken. Student loan debt, low-income jobs that don’t allow people to provide for their families, cutting Medicaid—all of these (and more) are issues that the next Congress must make progress on in order for America to live up to its promise of freedom and equality for all.

    Unfortunately, there are two questions that I wish I’d been able to ask her, but didn’t have the time.

    Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit ARI SHAPIRO, HOST: The violence in Chicago has been getting a lot of coverage this week. Over the weekend, more than 70 people were shot. So you might be surprised to learn that the homicide rate in Chicago is not the highest in the U.S. According to the most recent FBI data from 2016, Chicago came in number nine among U.S. cities of a quarter million people or more. To talk about how Chicago fits into the broader national picture of gun violence and homicide, Thomas Abt of the Harvard Kennedy School of Government joins us now. Welcome. THOMAS ABT: It's a pleasure to be here. SHAPIRO: If the problem is not worst in Chicago, where is it worst when you look at U.S. cities? ABT: There are a few cities that are sort of perennially at the top of the list in terms of per capita murder rates. St. Louis is currently the nation's murder capital. But cities like Baltimore, Detroit and New Orleans are always near the top. SHAPIRO: And are we talking about

              INDIANAPOLIS -- Adam Vinatieri has warmed up to those chilly New England receptions.      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    INDIANAPOLIS -- Adam Vinatieri has warmed up to those chilly New England receptions. Jakob Poeltl Jersey . Sometimes, he hears cheers. Sometimes, he hears boos. Its all part of life as an ex-Pat in one of footballs fiercest rivalries -- even for a kicker who signed with the Colts eight years ago. "Its the (Red) Sox-Yankees, if you will, that kind of thing where I think both teams respect each other and know what comes to the table," Vinatieri said. The story lines in this annual series have traditionally started and ended with the quarterbacks -- Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and now Andrew Luck. But the ties run so much deeper, especially given Indianapolis ever-expanding list of former Patriots. In addition to Vinatieri, theres cornerback Darius Butler, who may replace injured starter Greg Toler in Saturday nights playoff game, with the winner advancing to the AFC championship game. Butler was New Englands second-round pick in 2009, and since joining the Colts in September 2012, hes intercepted eight passes and returned three for scores. "Youve always got something to prove," said Butler, who was cut by the Patriots at the end of training camp in 2011. "And its always special when youre facing a former team." Safety Sergio Brown spent two seasons with New England (12-4) before landing with Indy last season, too. If LaRon Landry doesnt clear the concussion protocol before kickoff, the special teams standout could be starting, too. And on Monday, the Colts added another New England fan favourite -- receiver Deion Branch, the Super Bowl MVP in the Patriots last title run. Saturday will be his first trip to New Englands visiting locker room, and Branch isnt entirely sure about how hell be treated by the fans who warmly embraced him for so many years. "I think so far its been a little 75-25 (positive)," Branch said, based on what hes heard about the fans reaction to signing with Indy (12-5). "Most everybody understands and they respect that, but then you have those die-hard fans." Massachusetts native Matt Hasselbeck is one of three Colts players -- along with left tackle Anthony Castonzo and right tackle Gosder Cherilus -- who played at Boston College, and he knows enough about the city and its fans to know the boos are nothing personal. "Its probably a sign of respect, deep down," said Hasselbeck, who was a New England ball boy when his father, Don, played for the Patriots. "I think Adam is one of the all-time sports icons in that area, I know he was to me when I was in college there. Those kicks, especially in the snow, were special moments." Vinatieris history didnt matter to some fans when he returned to Foxborough for the first time in November 2006. While former teammates and team owner Robert Kraft traded handshakes with Vinatieri, he heard boos along with the cheers. It probably wont be much different Saturday night. New Englands ties to Indy are limited. Coach Bill Belichick started his NFL coaching career with the Colts back in 1975 when the team was still in Baltimore, and offensive line coach Dante Scarnecchia worked on the Colts staff in 1989 and 1990. The only former Colt on New Englands roster is receiver Austin Collie. "I look forward to seeing guys that Ive built relationships with there," Collie said. "But to me its just - weve got to win. Its all about advancing. Thats what my mindset is." The Colts concur. "Ive been over on that sideline for a lot of years, too, and I know what they bring to the table. Theyll have their team ready to play. The fans will be loud and crazy. Its playoff football," Vinatieri said. "Thats what its supposed to be like." Notes: Receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey (hamstring) was the only Colts player who did not practice Thursday. Coach Chuck Pagano said he expected everybody except Heyward-Bey to play Saturday night, though Landry still has to be cleared because of his concussion. Delon Wright Jersey . -- Arizona came out of its last meeting with California a bit discombobulated, hurting from its first loss and the loss of forward Brandon Ashley for the rest of the season. Custom Toronto Raptors Jerseys .Kraft says Goodell realized before seeing a video showing Baltimore running back Ray Rice striking his then fiance that domestic violence was very serious for society in general. http://www.shopraptors.com/Cheap-Cj-Mile...rs-Jersey/ . -- The Chicago Bears say they have agreed to a one-year contract with centre Roberto Garza.Nine players have withdrawn from the Australian Open through the first two days due to injury, including No. 12 Tommy Haas, No. 13 John Isner and No. 21 Philipp Kohlschreiber. Thats five more players in two days than the entire 2013 U.S. Open in September of last year. While the final Grand Slam at the end of a gruelling season might be expected to have more impact on the health of players, the Australian Open is taking out competitors at an alarming rate to kick off the 2014 schedule. And although none of the nine players officially retired due to the roaring heat in Melbourne, one would think its played a part. Heat has always been an issue for this event but it seems to be getting worse. What should be done to make things better for the players? The average temperature in Melbourne in January - the first month of summer Down Under - is 25.9 C. The average temperature for the opening two days of the seasons first Grand Slam was 36 C. Despite any match-ending issues related to the heat, there is no shortage of players - and a ball boy - struggling to maintain their composure under the sun. But tournament organizers have not suspended any matches as yet. "I think its inhumane, I dont think its fair to anybody, to the players, to the fans, to the sport, when you see players pulling out of matches, passing out," Canadian Frank Dancevic told reporters after his first-round loss in which he collapsed on the sideline during the second set. "Ive played five set matches all my life and being out there for a set and a half and passing out with heat stroke, its not normal." The tourrnament has contingencies in place to deal with the heat, which was put into effect Tuesday by granting womens matches an extra 10-minute break between the second and third sets. KJ McDaniels Jersey. Stopping a match, however, is at the discretion of tournament director Wayne McKewen as part of a new rule instituted this year. "We have to reach a minimum threshold and have a forecast that it will be sustained for a reasonable time," McKewen said in a statement. "That didnt happen. While conditions were hot and uncomfortable, the relatively low level of humidity ensured play would continue." Organizers use the Wet Bulb Global Temperature composite, which factors in humidity and wind in an attempt to assess the conditions more accurately. On Tuesday, temperatures were expected to reach as high as 42 C. Rod Laver Arena and Hisense Arena are the only two venues with retractable roofs and air conditioning, but have yet to be utilized. All other courts remain at the mercy of the heat and the forecast is calling for high 30s on Wednesday and low 40s for Thursday and Friday. Two-time defending champion Victoria Azarenka said the court at Rod Laver was "like youre dancing in a frying pan." Is it time for organizers to provide more cooling options, including stopping matches before its too late? Could the tournament begin earlier or later and still comfortably sit between the U.S. Open in September and the French Open in May? What more can be done to combat the uncomfortable and potentially dangerous conditions at the Australian Open? As always, its Your! Call.

              NFL to Have Its First Male Cheerleaders This Season      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Male dancers will appear on NFL sidelines starting in 2018.

    The New Orleans Saints and Los Angeles Rams both added men to their cheerleading teams, according to the rosters on their official team websites.

    It marks the first time men will be cheering a team in the league since the spirit squads made their debut in 1954, according to nfl.com. All but six of the 32 NFL teams have cheerleading teams. 

    Men perform stunts during Indianapolis Colts and Baltimore Ravens games but don’t dance alongside the women, according to a USA Today report.

    The Rams added two men to their cheerleading roster and the Saints added one.

    "We are proud that one of our new members Jesse Hernandez, like all of the other candidates, went through a very rigorous and thorough audition process which was podcast on our digital assets," said Ashley Deaton, senior director of the Saintsations, in an email. "Jesse was evaluated by a panel of judges that deemed his talents warranted a position on the team."

    In an email, a Rams spokeswoman said there are 40 cheerleaders on this year's team. The selection process includes an application submission, two rounds of preliminary auditions, an interview, three rehearsals and a final audition.

    Future Rams cheerleader Napoleon Jinnies tweeted that he "still can't believe" he's one of the first cheerleaders in the NFL: "Everyone’s support and love has been insane!"

              Domestic Violence Expert Resigns From NFL Players Association Commission      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Deborah Epstein has spent her professional life fighting for victims of domestic violence. But protecting such victims is also what Epstein says led her to step down from a commission meant to tackle the issue of domestic violence in the National Football League. The NFL's Players Association Commission on Violence Prevention was formed after several NFL players were accused of violence against their domestic partners, including Ray Rice of the Baltimore Ravens, who knocked his fiancée unconscious in an elevator. In 2014, Epstein, director of the Georgetown University Law Center's Domestic Violence Clinic, was asked to serve on the commission. She and research psychologist Lisa Goodman were authorized to conduct a national study of players' wives, collecting the women's suggestions for handling domestic violence and supporting its victims. As she tells NPR, her decision to resign came after troubling "pattern emerged" in her communications with the NFLPA. "I brought a number of ideas

    GLEN BURNIE, Md. (AP) — A 22-year-old man who went for his driver's test left in handcuffs after the examiner became suspicious about a certain odor emanating from the car.

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




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




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

    Quote: "A portion of North Baton Rouge was blocked off due to multiple reports of a suspicious odor in the air Monday night. Reports of the odor began around 7:45 p.m. Monday evening. At 10:20 p.m., a spokesperson with the Baton Rouge Fire Department said the smell was dissipating, but response teams were unable to find the source. Entergy says crews searched in the area near Shelley Street and Evangeline Street, and while there was an odor in the air, it's not from gas."

    Quote: "About a dozen Onekawa Industrial area businesses were evacuated this morning after reports of a gas leak in the area. Fire and Emergency in Napier were called just before 10.15am and three appliances went to the scene which centred around Niven St, Edmundsen St, Wakefield St and Thorn Place. Cordons were set up and traffic diverted while staff and occupants of buildings in the immediate area were evacuated, including a large number from the Quality Bakers in Niven St. Using gas detectors crews moved through the area but at the end of a detailed search of buildings and sites came up with nothing."

    http://twitter.com/CBSNews/status/1026668775070949376

    Quote: "Residents of U.S. towns damaged by wildfires may need to prepare for another repercussion: insurers that decide to cancel policies because of increased risks from more frequent fires. Facing mounting losses, some property insurers are pulling back from selling policies in California and other western states where wildfire risk is elevated. In California alone, damages had mounted to at least $12 billion by early 2018, while the state's Carr fire likely added another $1.5 billion in insured losses."

    http://fox40.com/2018/07/29/live-blog-mendocino-complex-fire/

    Quote: "Two wildfires blazing in California, known as the Mendocino Complex fire, became the largest recorded in state history on Monday, crossing a grim milestone. The fire, in Colusa, Lake and Mendocino counties, has killed two people and burned almost 283,800 acres as of Monday. It has destroyed at least 143 structures, including 75 homes, according to Cal Fire officials. More than 9,000 structures remain under threat. The Mendocino complex fires, which encompass an area the size of Los Angeles, surpassed the Thomas wildfire in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties, which burned 281,893 acres last year."

    Quote: "We're looking at over 629,000 acres of ground and vegetation burned in California since January 1 of this year. Last year, same period of time, 223,000 acres..."

    Note: So wildfires are burning at almost triple the rate of last year, and last year was itself a record-setting year. From the full hypothesis: "Probably the most noticeable effect will be fires and explosions sweeping across the planet."

              Premiere! Männliche Cheerleader in der NFL       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    In der NFL wird mit Beginn der neuen Saison Geschichte geschrieben. Erstmals seit Einführung werden auch männliche Cheerleader an der Seitenlinie den Fans einheizen.

    Bei den Los Angeles Rams und den New Orleans Saints gehören sie in Zukunft zum Cheerleading-Team. 

    Die Tänzer Quinton Peron und Napoleon Jinnies zeigen ab September in L.A. ihre Moves und das als "richtige" Cheerleader: Beide Männer werden exakt die gleiche Choreographie tanzen wie ihre weiblichen Kolleginnen. 

    Bisher zeigen Männer nur Stunts

    Bei den Baltimore Ravens und den Indianapolis Colts gibt es bereits Männer im Team, diese tanzen aber nicht, sondern zeigen atemberaubende Stunts.

    "Ich kann es immer noch nicht glauben, dass ich einer der ersten Männer in der Geschichte bin, der bei einem NFL-Team als Cheerleader arbeiten kann", zeigte sich Jinnies auf Twitter begeistert.

    Im März hatten die beiden an einem dreiwöchigen Ausscheidungsverfahren teilgenommen und sich ihren Platz erarbeitet. Auch bei den Saints gibt es in Zukunft männliche Mitglieder im Cheerleading-Team. 

    Geschichte der Rams inspiriert andere

    Von den Rams inspiriert, hat sich auch der Tänzer Jesse Hernandez in den Kopf gesetzt, bei einem NFL-Team durchzustarten. Nach einer Audition wurde er bei den "Saintsations", dem Cheerleading-Team der New Orleans Saints aufgenommen.

    "Der ganze Prozess war toll, jeder war nett zu mir und ich kann nicht erwarten, wie das alles weitergeht", sagte Hernandez gegenüber CNN.

    Die neue NFL-Saison startet am 6. September.
