          Couple Robbed At Gunpoint In Chicago; Video Apparently Shows Suspects      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The video sent to CBS 2 by a tipster shows two men walking in an alley, a couple crossing in front of them, and then one of the men pulling out a gun before following the couple around the corner. Chicago police confirmed there was an armed robbery around 3:15 a.m. Wednesday near Damen and Charleston. Images from Google Maps confirm the surveillance video came from the same location. While the video does not show the robbery itself, a police department spokesperson said investigators are reviewing the video to definitively link it to the robbery. Police said a 25-year-old woman and a 31-year-old man were walking on the sidewalk when two men came up from behind and knocked them to the ground. One of the suspects hit the man in the back of the head with a pistol. The suspects robbed the couple at gunpoint and ran south on Damen. The male victim was treated at St. Mary's Hospital for minor injuries. No one was in custody Wednesday morning. Area North detectives were investigating. {{embed|t=u4vd_1533764094}}

{{file|t=9T81F_1533763732}} "With worn-out clich'es about the dead voting, Chicago used to be the poster child for voter fraud. But if any state is a poster child for terrible election practices, it is surely Georgia. Bold claims demand bold evidence, and unfortunately there's plenty; on Monday, McClatchy reported a string of irregularities from the state's primary election in May, including one precinct with a 243-percent turnout. McClatchy's data comes from a federal lawsuit filed against the state. In addition to the problem in Habersham County's Mud Creek precinct, where it appeared that 276 registered voters managed to cast 670 ballots, the piece describes numerous other issues with both voter registration and electronic voting machines. (In fact it was later corrected to show 3,704 registered voters in the precinct.) Multiple sworn statements from voters describe how they turned up at their polling stations only to be turned away or directed to other precincts. Even more statements allege incorrect ballots, frozen voting machines, and other issues." {{file|t=ae6P0_1533764386}} More in Article: https://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2018/08/georgia-defends-voting-system-despite-243-percent-turnout-in-one-precinct/?amp=1#amp_tf=From%20%251%24s Additional Source: https://www.mcclatchydc.com/latest-news/article216056560.html

Toronto's transit is on the pricier side, but I don't think you can say that it is "extremely expensive" compared to US counterparts. A single trip is $3 CAD or about 2.25 USD and a monthly pass is 146.25 CAD or about $110 USD. Chicago's fares are 2.25 bus, 2.50 metro, and 105 for monthly pass. My city, Vancouver, seems to have fares similar to its peers, Seattle and Portland. A single bus trip is 2.30 CAD (1.75 USD), and a single metro or ferry trip is between 2.30 and 4.40 CAD (1.75 and 3.30 USD) depending on the number of zones. There is no transfer penalty between bus, ferry or metro. Monthly passes are also zoned and range between 95 and 174 CAD (71.25 and 130.5 USD). Seattle's single bus trips are 2.75 and light rail fares are between 2.25 and 3.25. Monthly passes are between 99 and 117. Monthly passes are more expensive in Vancouver, but you get much more service with three different metro lines compared to one light rail line in Seattle. Portland has lower fares, 2.50 for a single trip on bus or light rail and 100 for a monthly pass, but Portland's level of service is much lower than Vancouver's with consequently much lower ridership.

          Comment on Stan Mikita Has Passed Away by RED TOP PARKING      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
And now 21 belongs to the ages. One of the things about Stan in Chicagoland is that of all the sports people we followed and admired, Stan was more like us, it seemed, than the others. My uncle Walter was a doctor and owned a home in Elmhurst in the 60’s. One night shortly after he had become a young MD Walter ended up in the Blackhawks dressing room stitching up a player. This began a long association with the team and numerous players. Mikita and Walter were neighbors in Elmhurst, about the same age, wives and kids about the same age. They were friends. Of course Stan was my hero, as was Bobby, but Stan was like family and Bobby was more like Mickey Mantle. When 9 left town Stan filled the void and his stature grew. Memories. The golden tones of Lloyd Pettit over the radio in a darkened kid’s room so vividly made alive by what Stosh was doing on the ice. Verdi said Mikita “could stickhandle through a car wash and not get wet”. It is so. One very hot summer day when I was about 10 years old we show up at my uncle’s house. My Aunt Jeannie (God bless her) says “Your uncle is waiting for you in the den”. I mope down the hall as if I’m in trouble and go in. Uncle Walter is sitting there with three other guys. Instantly I recognize Stan, even through his summer mustache (it looked great on him!). Next to him were Kenny Wharram and Pit Martin. They had just returned from the golf course and were well into their beers, frosty mugs of which were quickly set aside when the kid walked in. I got my hair tussled and some how ‘ya doings and also heard some wisecracking between them which I didn’t understand at the time but it sure was special to laugh with those men. I was ten feet tall that day.

          To Curb Illegal Immigration, DHS Separating Families At The Border      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The Department of Homeland Security has undertaken its most extreme measure yet to discourage asylum seekers from coming to the U.S. — family separation. A 39-year-old mother is named as Ms. L in a lawsuit brought against the U.S. Department of Homeland Security by the American Civil Liberties Union. Ms. L traveled with her 7-year-old daughter, named as S.S., from the Democratic Republic of Congo to Mexico.

The Night Aunt Milly Died

Stacy wrote to tell of her bizarre experience:

“I'm in my 50s and do not have many encounters. I'm not a ghost chaser and I'm not good at spinning yarns but I have had two experiences in my life that have convinced me that there are ghosts, hence, something after death. One has actually taken me 40 years to find out the truth about - my Aunt Milly.

When I was very young, my Aunt Milly and I had one of those special bonds. She doted on me and I loved her to death. She would always bring me Pop Tarts when she visited. When I was about seven she came to spend the night at our house as she often did. I went to bed and then in the early AM hours, I woke up to hear my aunt crying and I figured out she was feeling sick. Then I heard the ambulance arrive and the paramedics coming in the house to help her. I heard them climb the stairs to go to her room. When they arrived, her crying became worse and I could hear the terror in her voice. It was tearing at my heart to hear her fear. She kept talking to my father saying, 'Please, Bobby! I don't want to go! Don't let them take me!' It was just heart-wrenching. I can still hear that fearful crying to this day. I guess you could say it was haunting me my entire life. Well when I got up in the morning, my parents told me she had died.

Over the years I never talked about that night with my parents as it was so upsetting to me. Finally, 40 years later my mother and I were talking about Aunt Milly. I finally told her I was awake when she got sick and heard her cries and fear. My mother then told me that it wasn't possible, that she had actually died in her sleep and was dead long before the ambulance arrived to take her away. How had I heard her cries and fear if she was already dead? Why did no one else hear it? It took me 40 years to realize that I'd heard her from wherever comes next.”

Saudi Arabia 'Crucified' Condemned Man

Saudi Arabia executed and crucified a Myanmar man in the holy city of Mecca on Wednesday in a rare form of punishment reserved for the most egregious crimes.

Elias Abulkalaam Jamaleddeen was accused of breaking into the home of a woman from Myanmar, firing a weapon in it then repeatedly stabbing her, which led to her death, the official Saudi Press Agency reported, citing an Interior Ministry statement. He was also accused of stealing weapons and trying to kill another man whose home he broke into, as well as attempting to rape a woman.

The ruling was supported by the country’s supreme court and endorsed by the king.

Crucifixions in Saudi Arabia entail hanging a body in public after an execution, and are unusual. A Yemeni man was crucified in 2010 for raping and killing a girl and shooting dead her father. - Saudi Arabia Carries Out Rare Crucifixion for Murder, Theft

Fisherman Recalls 'Sea Monster' Encounter

CAPE SABLE ISLAND, N.S. – The 1967 Shag Harbour UFO crash is not the only strange, unexplained occurrence that has happened in Shelburne County over the years.

Shag Harbour UFO Festival goers were treated to an eye witness account of a sea creature encounter, experienced by Cape Sable Island fisherman Rodney Ross in July 1976, while fishing with his father on the fishing grounds known as Pollock Shoal.

The opening night of the UFO Festival (Aug. 3) was only the third time that Ross has told the story to an audience. He is the last of the five fishermen aboard three different boats that saw the creature during a one-week period 42-years ago.

“Some like to call it the South Side sea monster and I think I probably agree it looked like a monster,” said Ross.

The story begins on a Monday when a fellow fisherman, the late Eisner Penney, was out fishing on the Pollock Shoal. He had finished fishing for the day and started for home when he turned around and saw this strange looking creature following behind him, said Ross.

          Did Mom Just Come Out to Her Queer Kids?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Savage Love Letter of the Day by Dan Savage

1517598297-1516999045-savage-letter-of-the-day-stamp-2018.jpg

My brother (gay) and I (pan) have long suspected our mom might fall somewhere on the queer spectrum. Yesterday she said "we" and "us" in reference to queer humans. I didn't say anything because my brain couldn't process quickly enough. But, did my mom just come out? Do we follow up? Was this an invitation to ask questions? Or just a show of solidarity for her queer kids?

Did Mom Out Herself?

The one acronym that rules includes us all—LGBTQIA and its many metastasizing variations—features at least one A, DMOH, and often two. One of those As stands for "asexual" and the other stands for "ally." So it's possible that your mother used "we" and "us" not because she identifies with the L, B, or T, but because she identifies with the A-for-ally, since she's an ally to to her G and P kids. But the only person who knows for sure what's up with your mom is your mom, obviously, so you're gonna have to ask her what she meant by that "we" and that "us."

That was too easy—so, hey, bonus question after the jump...

Hey Dan! I'm a long time listener of the podcast and I have a sex question that I'm sure you've answered a million times but here we go. I just ended an LTR that was way past it's expiry date. I got on Tinder wanting to just have some fun for a while—basically, my recently terminated relationship was sexless and I was dying to get fucked. Somehow I ended up meeting a great guy and everything's going great... except for one thing, of course: sex. We can fool around and he'll get really hard and we can get each other off just fine. But when it's time to actually have sex he goes soft. He's said a ton of times it's nerves and that it's just been a really long time for him and that's why he's so nervous. And I'm obviously understanding but I thought it would just be a something that was a one-off or like a couple times but this has happened like 10+ times. It's only been a few weeks so am I just being impatient? Do you have any tips? I've tried touching him and getting really close to just kind of switch my hands to my vagina but that doesn't even work. I'm trying not to rush all of this, and the sexual things we do ARE great but my relationship that I needed out of was completely sexless for so long and your girl needs to get FUCKED. Help!

Frequently Underwhelming Couplings Keeping Me Enervated

First, FUCKME, all those other ways you and the new guy are getting each other off? That's sex too. All those presumably non-PIV things you're doing to each other? Totally sex, totally counts. Which means you are having sex—actual sex, actually—with this guy, FUCKME, even if you aren't having the particular kind of sex you enjoy most and got on Tinder to find: sex of the PIV variety.

The go-to advice in a situation like this is to take the pressure off—tell him there's no rush, FUCKME, and when you head to bed, tell him you have no expectations. If he can fuck you, that would be great; if he can't fuck you, there are plenty of other equally great things you can do together. Enjoy what's working for the time being and, with any luck, soon he'll relax enough to get past the psychological block that's chasing his erections away at the crucial moment.

That said, you're newly single, you met this guy on Tinder, you've only been seeing him for three weeks. Presumably you two aren't committed and/or exclusive at this stage, FUCKME, which means you're free to keep seeing this guy while seeking out other opportunities, i.e. PIV sex with guys whose cocks don't get soft at that crucial moment.

But if you're a one-man-at-a-time kinda gal or if he's made it clear he's a one-woman-at-at-time kind guy—if you're a star-crossed pair serial monogamists—give him three more weeks and 10+ more times to pull himself (and his erections) together. But don't tell him that, of course, as it ensure the problem won't go away before his time runs out.

          Study: Online Daters Aim 'Out of Their League'      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Most people who use online dating websites seek partners who are out of their league, said a study Wednesday based on heterosexuals in four big US cities. "Both men and women pursued partners about 25 percent more 'desirable' than themselves," said the report in the journal Science Advances. Hardly anyone reached out to people who ranked significantly lower than themselves. People's desirability was determined using a ranking algorithm based on how many messages they received from other popular users on a dating site in New York, Seattle, Boston and Chicago. "If you are contacted by people who are themselves desirable, then you are presumably more desirable yourself," said the study. Using this PageRank algorithm, which is employed by web search engines, researchers could establish a person's "league," which they scientifically coined "hierarchies of desirability." For some at the pinnacle of the dating game, the flurry of messages from would-be suitors was dizzying. "The most popular individual in our four cities, a 30-year-old woman living in New York, received 1,504 messages during the period of observation, equivalent to one message every 30 min, day and night, for the entire month," said the study. While researchers did not reveal the end to this lady's love story, they did find that the majority of daters on the site tended to reach out to people who were ranked higher than themselves. They also tended to send lengthier messages to people deemed higher on the desirability ladder. In most cases, these long-shots fell short. When there is a big gap in desirability between online daters, "there is a pronounced drop in the probability of reply," said the report. And only in Seattle were there signs that long letters were more successful than short messages at getting a potential mate to respond. People have probably been pining for unattainable love interests since the dawn of time. But taking a scientific look at the phenomenon gives cause for hope, according to lead author Elizabeth Bruch, a sociologist at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. "I think a common complaint when people use online dating websites is they feel like they never get any replies," she said. "This can be dispiriting. But even though the response rate is low, our analysis shows that 21 percent of people who engage in this aspirational behavior do get replies from a mate who is out of their league, so perseverance pays off."

          The rise of the Red Power movement      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Brian Ward celebrates the anniversary of the formation of the American Indian Movement 50 years ago and the revitalization of resistance to U.S. settler-colonialism.

IN JULY 1968, the American Indian Movement (AIM) was founded in Minneapolis and became the organizational expression of the Red Power movement.

It was three months after Black uprisings shook cities across the country in the wake of Martin Luther King’s assassination, two months after the massive general strike in France, and a month before the brutal repression of anti-Vietnam war protests in Chicago outside the Democratic National Convention.

When we talk about the radicalization that happened in the 1960s and 1970s, we often forget about AIM and the Red Power movement, which were outgrowths of both centuries of resistance to settler-colonialism and the revolutionary fever of 1968.

On the 50th anniversary of founding, and in a time of renewed levels of Native resistance, it’s important to tell this story.


From Wounded Knee to “Termination”

On December 29, 1890, the 7th U.S. Cavalry killed at least 150 people — some estimate as many as 300 — at Wounded Knee, South Dakota, now located on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation.

Many historians and Natives saw Wounded Knee as the turning point after a long fight against relentless U.S. capitalist expansion westward. The massacre is often cited as marking the end of the Indian Wars and the start of a full assimilation policy that would last until the 1970s.

But while Wounded Knee was a historic atrocity, the passage of the Dawes Act of 1887 marked the start of disastrous policy of forced assimilation. It systematically reduced the land held by Natives in the West, and attempted to integrate them into American capitalism by undoing any notion of collective ownership and “giving” 160 acres to each head of household.

One of the law’s most important provisions was that the surplus land was made available for settlers, railroads, corporations and national parks.

This time saw the forerunner of Donald Trump’s border policy of separating immigrant children from their families. Many Native children were ripped from their homes and sent to Indian boarding schools, which aimed to rid the children of their language and culture and teach them a trade to make them useful cogs in the U.S. economy.

Eventually, Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s “New Deal” government was pressured to pass the Indian Reorganization Act of 1934, which ended the Dawes Act and finally gave back some level of sovereignty to Indians by officially “creating” tribal government that were elected by the tribe. Tribal constitutions, however, had to be approved by the federal government and the constitutions could not contain any form of traditional governance.


The Conditions that Gave Rise to Red Power

By the 1950s, many American Indians lived either on extremely impoverished Indian reservations or within urban centers that were often referred to as Red Ghettos.

Natives had always come to cities for work, but this migration started to dramatically increase in 1953, when Congress passed House Concurrent Resolution 108, which called for the end of reservations and federal services and protections “as rapidly as possible.”

The policy of “termination,” as it was known, was aimed at total assimilation — and allowing the U.S. government to eliminate any type of land claim or treaty rights and finally end its “Indian Problem.”

Officials chose Native nations that they considered to be the most “advanced,” eliminated their reservations and federal relationship to Washington, and handed over jurisdiction to the state. The idea of nation-to-nation relationship and treaty rights would be abolished.

The Menominee Nation in northern Wisconsin was the first tribe to be terminated. It fell under the authority of the state, as though it were simply a county without any national identity. Menominee land became easier to sell and privatize so the county could maintain a tax base.

After the policy was implemented, the Menominee were devastated. If the federal government had its way, termination was going to be imposed on every other Native nation within the United States.

As part of the termination policy, one-way bus tickets were given to Natives to leave their reservations with the promise of good jobs, resulting in a influx of Natives into cities like Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Chicago, Seattle, Portland and San Francisco.

From 1960 to 1970, the percentage of Natives living in urban areas nearly doubled — from 28 to 44 percent. Today, 78 percent of Natives live off reservations and 72 percent live in cities or suburban areas.

This was the Indian version of the Great Migration of African Americans from the South to the North 100 years ago, except in this case, it was official government policy.

For the U.S. government, termination turned out to be a double-edged sword. It weakened Native communities, but also brought thousands of Indians together in cities, creating a pan-Indianism that hadn’t existed at least since Tecumseh’s efforts in the early 1800s to build multination resistance to Western expansion.

In cities and on reservations, American Indians faced racial profiling from the police and were one of the most disproportionately represented groups in prison. In 1968, at the time of AIM’s founding, Indians were about 10 percent of the population of Minneapolis and 70 percent of the city’s jail population.

Many of the founders of AIM first met while they were in prison. Clyde Bellecourt and Eddie Benton Banai were Ojibwe inmates in 1962 at Minnesota Stillwater Prison and started reading about the civil rights movement and the Black Panthers.

Their first taste of organizing was an education program with 47 Native prisoners. As Bellecourt recounts in Peter Matthiessen’s In the Spirit of Crazy Horse, “I guess we had the first real Indian Studies Program in the country.”

Many Indians in urban centers also started to fight for health care rights, which were guaranteed to many Natives in treaty rights. At the time, you couldn’t find an Indian Health Services outside a reservation.


The Birth of the American Indian Movement

As more and more Indians became radicalized by termination, unemployment and police violence, many took inspiration from the Black Power movement to develop their own Red Power.

In July 1968 in Minneapolis, Eddie Benton Banai, Clyde Bellecourt, George Mitchell and Dennis Banks founded what they first called the “Concerned Indian Americans.” Quickly recognizing the acronym problem, they renamed themselves the American Indian Movement.

The group’s original aim was fighting police violence in the Native neighborhood of Franklin. In their book Like a Hurricane, Paul Chaat Smith and Robert Allen Warrior describe the group’s original activities:

One of the first projects of the new group was the AIM Patrol. AIM raised money to equip cars with two-way radios, cameras and tape recorders so they could monitor arrests by the police department. When the AIM Patrol heard police dispatched to certain bars or street corners, officers would be met by Indians in red jackets carefully observing their actions. AIM also became expert at providing attorneys for those arrested. It was a tactic similar to Black Panther campaigns to monitor police in Oakland, California and other cities.

AIM’s political program was murky at first, but it evolved and developed through action and organizing into calling for self-determination and liberation.

AIM chapters started springing up everywhere in the country. The organization was growing at a rapid rate. Despite this, however, it faced the issue of disconnect from reservation people. Founded mainly by Minneapolis Ojibwe people (whose homelands are close to Lake Superior in Minnesota, Wisconsin and Michigan), AIM was an urban pan-Indian that didn’t have roots on reservations.

That changed dramatically in February 1972 after the murder of a Lakota man named Raymond Yellow Thunder in Gordon, Nebraska.

Gordon was a small town near the Pine Ridge Reservation. As in many reservation border towns, relations between Indian and white people were extremely strained. It wasn’t uncommon to hear people use the R-word and talk about the difference between “good” Indians and “bad” Indians.

That was the atmosphere in which Raymond Yellow Thunder was beaten to death by Melvin and Leslie Hare — who were charged only with assault and battery and released without bail. Yellow Thunder’s family in Pine Ridge sought assistance from both the tribe and the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), but heard nothing.

That’s when the family turned to AIM, which brought caravan after caravan to Gordon alongside the Oglala Lakota people. AIM demanded justice for the murder of Yellow Thunder. Russell Means, who was Oglala Lakota, but grew up in the Bay Area, helped bridge the gap between AIM and the Lakota people in Pine Ridge.

This unexpected response by Indians inspired people all around the country and forced Gordon authoroies to impose higher charges and convict the Hare brothers.

Gordon was a turning point for AIM, which became a trusted organization to traditionals on Pine Ridge and around the country. AIM’s success no doubt frightened the government because it had shown the ability to bring together people who had been intentionally separated: urban and reservation Natives.

After its successful campaign in Gordon, AIM was emboldened and quickly put itself on the national map, bringing the issue of Indian liberation to the mainstream.

In November 1972, the group organized the Trail of Broken Treaties, in which more than 500 American Indians drove across the country to D.C. to discuss the treatment of Indigenous people with the BIA.

AIM developed a 20-point plan, including the restoration of Indians’ treaty-making authority (ended by Congress in 1871), abolition of the BIA (reminiscent of current calls to abolish ICE), and that all Indians should be governed by treaty relations. Activists kicked the BIA out and occupied the building for a few days on the eve of the 1972 presidential election.

AIM was also part of campaigns against racism in and around Indian Country in places like Rapid City, South Dakota. It called for better housing and continued its campaign against police brutality.


The Occupation of Wounded Knee

AIM’s most memorable action was the 71-day occupation of Wounded Knee in early 1973. As I wrote in a 2013 article about the occupation for SW:

In the 1970s, the Pine Ridge reservation, where Wounded Knee is located, was run like a Latin American dictatorship.

The U.S. government would funnel money to Dick Wilson, the tribal council president, who oversaw the reservation with an iron fist. Supporters of the radical AIM were hunted down by the Guardians of the Olgala Nation (GOON) squad, ending in numerous gun battles. The GOON squad worked closely with the FBI and the Bureau of Indian Affairs.

Wilson was so unpopular that reservation residents formed the Oglala Sioux Civil Rights Organization (OSCRO) to impeach him. Petitions were filed — one even had more signatures than the number of votes Wilson got in the preceding election. Blatantly showing his corruption, Wilson personally presided over the impeachment hearing and insured that it failed to remove him.

In response, residents appealed for help to AIM, which brought 300 armed Oglala Lakota and AIM activists to Wounded Knee, took over the church and trading post, blocked all the roads, took several white hostages (who in fact were there willingly) and declared it a liberated territory.

The demands were simple: get rid of Dick Wilson and have the federal government investigate treaties. But the government was worried that Wounded Knee would become an example that others would follow. A high-ranking BIA official expressed alarm over his view that Wounded Knee had “crystallized a revolutionary movement in the United States.”

Instead, the government response was with overwhelming force, as hundreds of FBI agents, federal marshals, BIA police and Dick Wilson’s GOON squad surrounded Wounded Knee.

By the end of the occupation, two American Indians, Buddy Lamont and Frank Clearwater, were killed and several others were wounded.

As the FBI escalated its attack on AIM, the occupation became harder and harder to sustain. With no electricity, and running water and supplies dwindling, the occupation pushed people to their limits. The occupation ended on May 8. The FBI came in and disarmed and arrested 120 people. However, many people had snuck out the night before, evading arrest.


Repression and Decline

AFTER THE occupation of Wounded Knee, AIM’s prominence started to diminish as the group suffered from two tactics of government repression.

First, the FBI’s COINTELPRO program infiltrated AIM and started to create a culture of paranoia and suspicion. It later emerged that Douglass Durham, the group’s security director and often Dennis Banks’ personal bodyguard, was an FBI informant.

The government shamefully framed Leonard Peltier for the murder of two FBI agents in a 1975 shootout at Pine Ridge, even as the FBI admitted that it did not know who killed the agents and was more concerned about putting Peltier behind bars.

Peltier was up for parole in 2009, but Barack Obama refused to pardon or commute his sentence. He is still serving two life sentences.

The government’s second tactic against AIM was to force those arrested at Wounded Knee to go through long drawn out court cases that the government couldn’t win but that would fatigue and bankrupt the organization. Across the country, AIM members were brought up on minor charges, but would still have to go to court and fight tooth and nail, though the cases often got thrown out. It was meant to bankrupt the organization.

The repression compounded internal divisions and debates. AIM’s leadership was male-dominated, with members like Dennis Banks and Russell Means the group’s public face.

Members like Madonna Thunderhawk and Janet McCloud saw the need for Native women to start their own organization, and formed Women of All Red Nations in 1974 to fight for American Indian women health, against mass sterilization of women and against racist mascots and culture appropriation.

Among their many achievements, AIM and the Red Power movement overturned the termination policy — including restoring the Menominee reservation — and forced the government to pass legislation that promoted self-determination.

The movement’s legacy lives strong through Indian Country, where you will now see countless hats and shirts that say “Native Pride” or “Native and proud of it.”

However, AIM’s goal of liberation is far from being met. Natives are still being targeted by the police. According to the Center on Juvenile and Criminal Justice, Native Americans only represent 0.8 percent of the population, but are 1.9 percent of those killed by police. Indians are also disproportionately represented in prison, and treaty rights are still an important struggle.

As we see a wave of Indigenous resistance on a scale not seen since the 1970s, with the rise of Idle No More in Canada, fights against pipelines at Standing Rock and countless other locations and the #NativeLivesMatter movement, its vital for us to learn the radical history of AIM.

The best way to honor that history is to continue to resist and fight racism and discrimination while calling on the U.S. for reparations and self-determination — and to put forward a vision of socialism and Native liberation that ends the exploitation of the earth and the destruction of Indigenous land, and puts the fight against capitalism and settler-colonialism at the core of our resistance.

Have you been anxiously waiting to dive back into the dark world of the Byrde family? Has your Summer been incomplete without watching the clan navigate the troubling world of money laundering and drug cartels in the Missouri Ozarks?

Well, you don't have to wait much longer, because Ozark season two will be dropping in just a few short weeks. Look for season two on Netflix on Friday, Aug. 31, and get ready for an all-nighter; although Netflix hasn't officially announced the exact moment, it's most probable that season two will drop that date at 3 a.m. ET/midnight PT - which is the time Netflix makes the majority of its original series releases available for streaming.

Although cast members have been tight-lipped on what to expect from the new season, we do know that the majority of the original cast are set to return, including Arrested Development's Jason Bateman, who scored an Emmy nomination for his role as Marty Byrde on Ozark, and his onscreen wife, three-time Oscar nominee Laura Linney, who plays Wendy Byrde. One big addition to the cast is British actress Janet McTeer (Me Before You, The Woman in Black) as a "Chicago based attorney with links to the cartel," according to Netflix.

          Doctors Scrutinize Overtreatment, As Cancer Death Rates Decline      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
For many years, the death rate from cancer climbed steadily, and the focus of big cancer meetings was the quest for better treatments to bring malignancies under control. Cancer death rates have been falling in recent decades, and that's allowed researchers to ask another important question: Are some people getting too much treatment for their cancers? The answer, from the American Society of Clinical Oncology meeting in Chicago these past few days, is an emphatic yes. One dramatic example revealed at the meeting relates to the most common form of breast cancer, known as hormone-positive, HER-2 negative disease. For many women who have this diagnosis, but for whom the disease has not spread to lymph nodes, a new study finds that anti-hormone treatment after surgery is enough, and women won't benefit from rounds of toxic and uncomfortable chemotherapy. Treatment of breast cancer for this large group of women will become easier. And for the many women who already choose not to undertake

Each week the show will see some of the best improvisers in Birmingham take the stage.

During the show our cast will take a suggestion from the audience and then tell a true-life directly from that suggestion. The rest of the cast will then create a series of comedy scenes inspired by the story. This show takes a very intimate look at the lives of our performers, then ruthlessly explores the comic premises from within those stories in a typically high-paced fashion.

After every show we have a break, grab a drink, then head back on stage for our informal Jam where we offer students and members of the audience a chance to get on stage with our house team and feel what it is like.

The Armando Diaz experience first appeared in 1995 at iO Chicago, inspiring similar shows to start up all over the world.

Favourite restaurants...

New Draver. A Surinamese restaurant. It’s small and cozy. No reservations. You eat in or take out. Food is bless!

Umaimon. A ramen specialized restaurant on Leidseplein. They serve some sick ramen (cream based, soy bases, you name it) they also have this sick ramune drink called Melon Soda!

Takeichi is also really good. Also a ramen spot.

Favourite bars...

You can have some good drinks at Cannibale Royal. It’s a restaurant but they are open till late. You can order a long island skull. That’s a dangerous one but so good!

Kopstootbar is also a good one. It’s on Leidseplein. It’s like meeting point! Everybody goes there.

Also to Chicago Social Club (also on Leidseplein).

Must do/must see...

Go to Patta, Daily Paper, Smib/TNO/Bonne Suits. All brands/shops in and from Amsterdam. You can also find Stüssy which is in the same street as Patta and the Smib/TNO/Bonne Suits shop.

Hidden gems...

Duke of Tokyo. It’s a karaoke spot. They did a sick job with the decoration. It’s like you are in Tokyo for a bit. The rooms are named after places in Tokyo (Shibuya/Harajuku and more). Sing songs, eat chicken karaage and drink sake!

If people have one night out in Amsterdam where should they go?

It depends which day to be honest. During the week I would say one of the bars I mentioned before. From Thursday 'til Saturday you can go to Chicago Social Club, Bitterzoet, Jimmy Woo, Chin Chin Club.

Don't miss...

Melon Soda. This is a drink. You can get it at Umaimon (the Ramen Restaurant I mentioned). Best drink EVER! You can basically find me at Umaimon once a week drinking that!

          Secondary market Packers tickets top $300 mark for 4th straight season      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Green Bay isn’t taking 100 years of football lightly. The town and team have been celebrating a century of Packers football since the spring, with activities not just in Green Bay, but all over the state. Ahead of the actual kickoff September 9 against the rival Chicago Bears at Lambeau Field, opening weekend will include concerts, alumni appearances and a gala. Like every other year, the 2018 Green Bay Packers tickets are sold out (with a waiting list 133,000 people long) on the primary market. On the secondary market, prices are as high as they’ve been since 2015, and the seventh-most expensive secondary market average price. According to data from TicketIQ.com, the $316 average price for Packers ticket at Lambeau Field price is the third highest since 2011 and marks the fourth consecutive year that the average asking price has been more than $300. The highest asking price was in 2016, when tickets commanded a price of $382, followed by $338 in 2015. The 2016 season, during which the Packers got to the NFC Championship, marked the end of eight consecutive playoff appearances. The Packers missed the playoffs in 2017. In addition to the 100-year celebration, fans are also excited for the return of a healthy Aaron Rodgers. The face of the franchise, Rodgers missed half of last season with a broken collarbone. Green Bay is counting on Rodgers returning at his peak – especially since the season starts with two of the top demand games: the opener against the Bears and, the following weekend, against rival Minnesota. The Vikings game, which has a current average asking price of $476, is the highest of the season, followed by the Bears game at $383. Get-in prices for those games are also the highest of the season at $298 and $204, respectively. Even the least expensive games of the season won’t be cheap. The average asking price for the Dec. 2 Arizona Cardinals game is $241, with a get-in price of $124. Whether fans want to find a way into the Vikings game or see a lesser rival from a better vantage point, TicketIQ.com can help. For the Vikings game, tickets are available for a low of $299 for a single ticket in Section 108, Row 60 with the company’s Low Price Guarantee, and for the Dec. 9 Atlanta Falcons game, fans can snag a ticket in the lower bowl behind the Packers bench in section 120 for $281, also with the Low Price Guarantee.

          Aaron Rodgers sticks up for player protests during national anthem      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
In a series of interviews this week, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers stood up for players protesting during the national anthem and attempted to refocus the message back on the root issues of Colin Kaepernick’s original protest. Rodgers’ goal: Shift the attention away from the actual national anthem – including the perceived disrespect for veterans and the military – and shine the light back on the social issues at the heart of the movement, such as racial inequality. “I don’t know how many times we can say, as a player and as a group, how much we love and support and appreciate the troops, and the opportunities this country allows us,” Rodgers told Mike Silver of NFL.com. “But this is about equality and something bigger than ourselves, and bringing people together, and love and connectedness and equality and social justice, and putting a light on people who deserve to have the attention for their causes and their difficult situations that they’re in. You know, people have their opinion — you shouldn’t do it during the anthem, you shouldn’t do it during this — that’s fine. But let’s not take away from what the real issue is.” The NFL rolled out a new national anthem policy this summer, which will include fines and/or suspensions if players do not stand or stay in the locker room during the anthem. Rodgers is against the policy, largely due to the owners’ decision to pass the new rule without input from the players or the NFL Players Association. New developments in the process suggest more collaboration between owners and players. However, Rodgers has never protested during the anthem, although three of his teammates – Martellus Bennett, Lance Kendricks and Kevin King – did sit on the bench during the anthem in Week 3 last season. The next week, the Packers came together and decided on a show of unity, with the entire team locking arms on the sideline during the anthem before a nationally televised game against the Chicago Bears. Rodgers isn’t sure how to fix the issue, but he’s certain the original message has been lost in the divisiveness of it all. And he’s sure the NFL and its owners have become hypocritically sanctimonious about the anthem. “If you’re going to take the focus off of what the protest was really about—it was never about the anthem, it was never about the troops, it was about social equality and racial injustice—then make it all about the anthem,” Rodgers told Kevin Clark of The Ringer. “Everybody in the stadium stands and does the exact same thing. You have people in the concession, people in the bathroom; you’ve got cameramen on their knee watching. You can’t have it one way or another.” Rodgers actually remembers how little the national anthem mattered before NFL games when he first entered the league. Now, with government money flowing in and special flyovers planned before almost every game, the national anthem is now a pre-game military spectacle. “Again, the messaging has been changed,” Rodgers said. “If the owners see it as all about the flag and the anthem, everybody should be held to the same standard.” This isn’t the first time Rodgers has defended those leading the battle for social change. Last August, in a wide-ranging interview with Mina Kimes of ESPN, Rodgers publicly defended Kaepernick and his protests during the anthem. He also said he’d be “100 percent supportive” of any teammate’s decision to protest. Packers president and CEO Mark Murphy has attempted to distance his team and the NFL from the anthem issue, citing its schismatic nature among fans. It would appear Rodgers cares more about preserving the heart of the message than avoiding any tension – perceived or otherwise – caused by the protests.

          An Interview with Savoy Motel      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

[photo by Semi Song]

CHIRP volunteer Amelia Hruby met up with Nashville band Savoy Motel in July before their show at the Empty Bottle where they were opening for Royal Headache. Their debut LP/CD will be out October 21st on What's Your Rupture? And you can see them in Chicago opening for the Dandy Warhols on 9/24.

Amelia: Have you guys been to Chicago before?

Jeffrey: It’s our third time. We played here [the Empty Bottle] with the Black Lips and we’ve played at the East Room.

Amelia: Did you enjoy those shows?

Jeffrey: Yeah, it was great. The last time we played here with the Black Lips. It was a sold out show, and it was our Chicago debut and our third or fourth out of town show.

Amelia: How long have you guys been playing together as a band?

Dillon: About two years. We started recording two years ago, and we recorded for six months before we played the first show. We had two records done when we did our first show, but we practiced quite a bit. We wanted to make sure that the live set was its own thing.

Amelia: So, I read that you’ve recorded three records now but haven’t released them. Can you tell me a little bit about that process?

Jeffrey: The third record will be our debut. But honestly no one was interested in the first two.

Jessica: The third album evolved to sound more like we sound live. Because we were all more involved in the making of it. The first two were kind of more … not solo projects, but they were more Jeffrey’s [music].

Dillon: We also spent more time on the third album. Not that we rushed through the first two, but for guitar alone we spent months recording. Jeffrey recorded the records as well. He produced them, and we spent three days on the “Hot Ones” solo. Just on that one part, we spent two or three days, trying to make sure it was the best it can be.

Amelia: And that album will be out ….

Jeffrey: October 21st

Amelia: Will you guys be doing a tour surrounding that album?

Jessica: Yeah, we’ll be back in Chicago in September. We’re opening for the Dandy Warhols on their big tour.

Amelia: So what are you all doing with the rest of your summer?

Dillon: This is our only out of town show until the Dandy Warhols tour.

Mimi: So we’ll be playing Nashville and hanging out.

Amelia: What do you like about Nashville? How do you find the Nashville music scene?

Jessica: Plenty of places to play. There’s a show most nights of the week and people are starting to come there more. In the years past a lot of people would pass up Nashville because there wasn’t really a demand for rock music, but in the last five or six years it’s started to make a comeback, and there’s a really active scene there now. Tons of young kids starting bands and us old folks still rocking it.

Amelia: Last question, so the B-side of the single you put out before your upcoming album is called “Souvenir Shop Rock.” What is one of your favorite things you’ve ever bought at a souvenir shop?

Mimi: Chattering teeth, definitely.

Jessica: I’m thinking a hermit crab and that has to be the best thing I’ve ever bought at a souvenir shop because I’m extremely utilitarian and generally avoid those things.

Dillon: Airbrushed t-shirt or something like that. We used to go to Florida every summer when I was a kid, and I would always get a different one.

Jeffrey: I really liked this wallet/knife combo they used to sell at Opryland. I didn’t actually have one, but my best friend in kindergarten did. My parents wouldn’t let me have a knife yet, but it was also part of a change purse that was made out of fake leather and seemed extremely unsafe. I’d love to see one again, because it barely qualified as a knife or a wallet, but it had the Opryland logo on it and would probably look really cool now. I mean, but what purpose does this serve?

          Family of long-dead ‘King of Ontario Bootleggers’ fight for control of his lost fortune      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Mobster Rocco Perri’s family in Hamilton and Australia say the federal government is withholding vital information that would connect them to what they call the bootlegger’s lost mega-fortune.

“It’s a legit estate,” said Andrew Monterosso, 53, who said he is Perri’s great-great nephew, in a telephone interview from his home in Canberra, Australia.

“It’s not criminal money.”

Perri and his estate have been a mystery since he vanished on April 23, 1944 while visiting a Hamilton relative in the city’s north end.

Perri complained of a headache that morning and went for a walk on Murray St, W., near James St. N.

He never returned.

Some say Perri, a former Toronto and Hamilton resident, was scooped up and murdered that day by underworld rivals — a popular joke in Hamilton was that his body would be found encased in concrete once the waters of the harbour cleared up.

Others — including Perri’s Hamilton and Australian relatives — say he quietly fled Canada and amassed a legal fortune in real estate in Mexico and the United States before dying of natural causes in 1953. Monterosso said Perri quietly lived his final days under the name of “Giuseppe Portolesi” in Massena, N.Y.

“Most of his money was made through properties and stuff like that,” said Monterosso, a spokesperson for the group.

Monterosso and several Australian and Hamilton relatives have hired lawyers and written Ottawa in an attempt to collect what they say is their rightful inheritance.

The Perris of Hamilton and Australian say conversations have gone all the way up to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Office, before being bounced back to the Canada Revenue Agency.

“Please be assured that the time you have taken to write regarding the estate of Mr. Rocco Perri is appreciated and that your comments have been reviewed and given the appropriate consideration,” Jerevan Singh, Trudeau’s special assistant, wrote them on June 15, 2017. “Since this matter falls within the portfolio of the Honourable Diane Lebouthillier, Minister of National Revenue, I have taken the liberty of forwarding a copy of your letter to her office. We are certain it will be given every consideration.”

That was after Lebouthillier’s office said that there are no records to hand over.

Lebouthillier’s staff wrote a March 2017 reply to the Perri’s then lawyer Douglas Burns stating, “Senior officials of the CRA have carefully reviewed Mr Rocco Perri’s file. They assure me that the only records in existence for this file are those associated with the recent communications with you and your client. There are no other documents or records held by the CRA with respect to Mr. Rocco Perri.”

Monterosso said he’s convinced there are records, somewhere.

Monterosso acknowledges that things were complicated because there wasn’t a social insurance number or death certificate for Perri, who would be 130 if he were still alive.

The Hamilton and Australian branches of the Perri family say have been doing plenty of detective work of their own and say they have learned the post-tax Perri estate money was sent to the Italian government on November 27, 2008.

“We had an informant inside the CRA who told us all of this,” Monterosso said.

That final estate was eventually transferred to Italy because Perri was an Italian citizen, Monterosso said.

Monterosso said there’s now a split between the Italian wing of Perri’s family and the Canadian and Australian branches over how to divvy up what he calls Perri’s legitimate fortune.

Ottawa could help settle things by providing details surrounding the money transfer to Italy, he said.

The Hamilton and Australian branches of the Perri family get frustrated when asked why they should be entitled to criminal money.

Robin Parisotto, another member of the family’s Australian branch of the Perris, said Ottawa took a share of the estate in taxes before transferring the rest to Perri family members in Italy.

This could be proven with a federal document called a “clearance certificate,” which would show details of the money transfer from Canada, Parisotto said.

Parisotto wrote to the Star: “It must be stated that if the accrued estate had been deemed as being acquired via illicit means (proceedings of crime) then surely no taxes would have been due on the estate as indicated by release of a Clearance Certificate, the funds would have been quarantined/sequestered into General Revenue and no one would ever have known about this.”

Monterosso says he’s not impressed with Ottawa’s response and doesn’t plan to give up.

Rocco left behind a massive estate, even after Ottawa took out a chunk of taxes, Monterosso said.

“It’s phenomenal,” he said of the sum, declining to provide an exact figure.

Perri supplied booze to the Chicago mob of Al Capone, at the time earning himself the title “King of Ontario Bootleggers” in The Toronto Daily Star.

He boasted to the Daily Star that he ran his business with guile, not violence.

“My men do not carry guns,” he told reporter David B. Rogers in an exclusive interview published on Nov. 19, 1924. “If I find that they do, I get rid of them. It is not necessary. I provide them with high-powered cars. That is enough. If they cannot run away from the police it is their fault. But guns make trouble. My men do not use them.”

          [Ilya Somin] Yet Another Federal Court Rejects Claims that Exposing Taxis to Competition from Uber and Lyft is a Taking      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

This is the latest in a series of federal court decision rejecting such arguments. The right to operate a taxi business does not create a "property" right in suppressing competition.

Over the last decade, traditional taxi cab company profits have taken a hit because of competition from ride-sharing services, such as Uber and Lyft. Some cab companies have tried to fight back by filing cases arguing that local governments that allow Uber and Lyft to compete with taxis have somehow violated the Takings Clause of the Fifth Amendment, which requires the government to pay "just compensation" when it takes "private property." On Monday, the US Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit issued the latest in a long line of federal court decisions rejecting such claims. Nick Sibilla of the Institute for Justice has an excellent summary of the ruling and its significance, in Forbes:

In a resounding win for innovation and economic liberty, the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously ruled on Monday that taxi owners in Miami-Dade County have "no right to block competition" from ride-hailing firms like Lyft and Uber. By rejecting the notion that incumbent businesses are "entitled to…a competition-free marketplace," the 11th Circuit's decision should set an important precedent not just for the gig economy, but for reformers looking to crack open $400,000 on the secondary market....

But when Uber and Lyft entered the scene, they dramatically expanded the supply of available rides....

The rise of ride-hailing was facilitated by a drastic change in the regulatory environment. At first, county code enforcement officers conducted several undercover sting operations, ticketing drivers and even impounding their cars. But in 2016, Miami-Dade County approved an ordinance that legalized ride-hailing....

Facing greater competition, the value for a taxi medallion has since plunged by 90%, and now fetches $35,000 at auction. With a once lucrative business model now imploding, three taxi companies, Checker Cab, B&S Taxi and Miadeco, took the county to court and demanded a bailout. Echoing legal arguments that failed in Boston, Chicago, Georgia, and Philadelphia, the medallion owners argued that by legalizing Uber and Lyft, Miami-Dade County had "significantly devalued" their medallions....

In their view, deregulation was an unconstitutional "taking" that violated their Fifth Amendment rights.....

Writing for the majority, Judge Stanley Marcus meticulously dismissed their claim. Although the owners have an "intangible property interest" in their medallions, "the medallions conveyed only a property interest in providing taxicab services in Miami-Dade County—not in barring competitors," Judge Marcus explained. "Even the most cursory examination of the code reveals that the county did not give the medallion holders the right to enjoin competition," he added, while "the code furnished no basis for the medallion holders' assertion that they were entitled to, or could reasonably rely on a competition-free marketplace."

An earlier ruling on the same issue by Judge Richard Posner of the US Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit (which Judge Marcus cited in his opinion), provides a particularly good summary of why exposing businesses to competition does not qualify as a taking:

[T]he City [of Chicago] is not confiscating any taxi medallions; it is merely exposing the taxicab companies to new competition —competition from Uber and the other TNPs [Transportation Network Providers].

"Property" does not include a right to be free from competition. A license to operate a coffee shop doesn't authorize the licensee to enjoin a tea shop from opening. When property consists of a license to operate in a market in a particular way, it does not carry with it a right to be free from competition in that market... Indeed when new technologies, or new business methods, appear, a common result is the decline or even disappearance of the old. Were the old deemed to have a constitutional right to preclude the entry of the new into the markets of the old, economic progress might grind to a halt. Instead of taxis we might have horse and buggies; instead of the telephone, the telegraph; instead of computers, slide rules.....

Taxi medallions authorize the owners to own and operate taxis, not to exclude competing transportation services. The plaintiffs in this case cannot exclude competition from buses or trains or bicycles or liveries or chartered sightseeing vehicles or jitney buses or walking; indeed they cannot exclude competition from taxicab newcomers, for the City has reserved the right... to issue additional taxi medallions. Why then should the plaintiffs be allowed to exclude competition from Uber?

Judge Marcus and other judges who have ruled on such cases appropriately relied on the fact that city medallion laws did not include any guarantees against competition. As a legal matter, they only give holders the right to operate a taxi business themselves, not the right to suppress competitors. In my view, however, there would be no violation of the Takings Clause even if the medallion laws did include a legal right to block competition, which was then repealed by later legislation. I explained why in this post discussing an earlier taxi/takings case:

[E]ven if the laws conferring medallions did explicitly guarantee the holders protection against competition, that still would not be enough for courts to require compensation under the Takings Clause. The Clause does not require government to compensate businesses for any and all policies that reduce their profits. Compensation is only necessary if the government takes "private property." A state-created legal right to exclude competitors from a market is not private property. It goes beyond giving the holder control over his or her own property, and instead allows them to restrict the use of others' property (in this case, cars). Such a right is not private property as that concept is usually understood in Anglo-American law, and certainly would not have been considered such by the framers and ratifiers of the Fifth Amendment.

One could point to the example of intellectual property as a property right protected by the Takings Clause, despite the fact that it is in large part a legal right to constrain competition. But, as my George Mason University colleague Adam Mossoff argues in an important article, the Founders may have considered patent and copyright to be "natural" property rights, not merely government-created monopolies. If Mossoff is right, intellectual property is readily distinguishable from government-created cartels in conventional markets, including taxi medallion systems. If not, perhaps courts should rethink the status of intellectual property under the Takings Clause (though Congress would, of course, remain free to provide compensation to aggrieved intellectual property owners by statute).

In addition to rejecting the taxi companies' takings claim, Judge Marcus' opinion also ruled against their contention that deregulation of ride-sharing services violated the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment because ride-sharing firms ended up less heavily regulated than traditional taxis. He does an excellent job of refuting this very weak argument. Similar arguments have also been rejected by other courts that have ruled on this issue.

Nearly a week ago, President Trump did what he does best, inflaming his fan base, by shredding CNN's Don Lemon and newly minted Los Angeles Laker LeBron James. He continued his attack on the cabler by labeling Lemon the "worst interviewer" on television, which is questionable. However, in the course of that interview, we found out that James was starting a school for at-risk kids in his hometown of Akron, Ohio, and when Trump went to Ohio last Friday for a rally, he made sure not to mention James by name, or discuss the subject.

Now comes word, via Yahoo!, that more than 4,000 fans have signed a petition suggesting the 33 year old NBA star would replace Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos. They forget that James went directly from high school to the NBA 15 years ago, and with the lack of college education, probably wouldn't be considered for the job.

In between, Trump has been ripped by a number of athletes not just in basketball, but other sports, too. James is also developing and/or producing television shows for cable and broadcast television, including a forthcoming Showtime miniseries that takes a line from Fox News' Laura Ingraham's criticism of James earlier this year, Shut Up & Dribble. James' production company has landed a deal with CBS for a competition series, and also produces NBC's The Wall.

Yes, the Tri-City Valleycats are still clinging to first place in the Stedler Division of the New York-Penn League after taking 2 of 3 from Connecticut, but a series against Hudson Valley, set to start tonight, could wind up infringed upon by rain.

========================================
Mets manager Mickey Calloway may think Jason Vargas is just having a bad year.

Vargas, on his 2nd tour of duty with the team, fell to 2-8 last night after losing to Cincinnati. He only pitched 1/3 of an inning due to a mammoth rain delay as a thunderstorm came downstate, and had the teams cooling their heels for nearly 2 hours.

According to a report in today's New York Post, Calloway is open to putting Vargas in the bullpen in the season's final weeks, but is committing himself to keeping Vargas in the rotation otherwise, headed into next year. In this writer's opinion, Vargas' best days are behind him, and his future lies in the bullpen, after all.

Another report making the rounds says that it's expected that Calloway will return next year, writing off this year as the product of too many injuries. However, given the heat that owner Fred Wilpon and his son, Jeff, have gotten from the fan base, you'd think they were the 2nd coming of M. Donald Grant, the cheapskate representing the Payson family in the 70's when they owned the Mets.

Cody Rhodes may be a villain most of the time in the wrestling ring, but outside the ring, he's becoming a hero to the masses, not quite his late father, Dusty, but a hero just the same.

After reading a message on social media from a disabled fan in New Jersey, Rhodes pledged to ensure that the fan would get to see the September 1 All In event on PPV. The card continues to take shape as of this writing, 3 1/2 weeks before it takes place, and it was revealed on Monday that the program would start with a hour-long broadcast on free TV, specifically WGN America (check listings), while the show otherwise will be on Fite TV, and streaming online at a number of sites, including Ring of Honor's Honor Club streaming service. Rhodes will challenge NWA champion Nick Aldis on the card, while ROH champ Jay Lethal will face the winner of a battle royal taking place early in the card.

Rhodes will also return to the CW's Arrow this season, reprising his role as Derek Sampson, who fought the Green Arrow (Stephen Amell) on a couple of occasions in season 5. Amell, by the way, is also appearing at All In, on a break from production on season 7 of Arrow.

Great two-way players are best known for their offensive feats and were typically listed with their offensive positions, for example Benny Friedman played quarterback on offense but halfback (cornerback) on defense. Defensive positions have changed dramatically over the years, and what you call a thing often takes another generation to change after the job has changed (for a taste, watch this 1940s defensive tutorial).

image

From the '30s to the '60s centers, fullbacks and one of the guards played linebacker. One safety played in the parking lot to deter quick punts because offenses would take a 50-yard field position swing over possession any day.

Transition periods are good for new position names and player nicknames—we're going through one now with Viper—but tough on roster data. Exempli gratia: the starter data list Dominic Tedesco and John Anderson as defensive ends in 1976. In 1977 they were both starters again but now at "outside linebacker."

No, Michigan didn't "switch" that year from a 5-2 defense to a 3-4. They just fixed the glitch. This gets especially troublesome when you consider how often shifts put 3-4 "tackles" on the edge. I mean, they called Mark Messner a tackle his whole career, even though he spent that career aligned up like so:

#60 at the bottom

Since the jobs haven't changed nearly as much as the names, I'm going to do defense by job description.

[After THE JUMP: The numbers.]

------------------------------------------------------

Nose Tackle (Down Guard, Middle Guard, Nose Guard) #96

Will Carr, Ryan Glasgow, Bob Kolesar as an underclassman

image

[Right: Upchurch]

My new rules made this hard: a lot of HM options and no clear winner. The top three were especially close: Martin and Glasgow were very similar players, and Carr was better than Bo's early '70s starter Greg Ellis, but #68 has (the better years of) a Seven-Oaks post, and 96 includes a guy from when I was at school that we try not to talk about. And I wanted to go with 54 because one should take every opportunity to mention Donnie Warner, since Michigan had a non-scumbag, non-loser, non-bench player who was the same size as Rudy with a tougher life story starting on a better defense because Warner was friggin' Sherlock Holmes at knowing offensive linemen tells.

Ultimately I nodded toward the more recent two because we can still talk about the 1940s star who wore this number as a sophomore. Bob "The Maulin' Medical Man" Kolesar was the backside guard (with Julius Franks the frontside) and played on or off the line depending of if Michigan was in its 6-2 or 5-3 alignment. However he only did that for a few games in 1940 before switching to #68. He would later try to stay in med school while enlisted in the U.S. Army and technically on the Detroit Lions. He also kicked off a legacy: Bob's distant cousin Bill played tackle for Michigan in the '50s, Bill's son John Kolesar, a receiver, played with Harbaugh. John's son Caden is a 2019 DB/ATH at St. Ed's with mostly MAC offers who might end up at Northwestern.

Nex let's talk about Will Carr, an All-American in 1996 who can only be googled by including the words "Jason Horn." Carr can take credit for some of that, as Horn wracked up 11 sacks and 18 TFLs in '95 with Carr sucking up doubles. He also lined up at fullback some, though he tended to fumble when he had the ball. Fortunately he lost control after he broke the plane on this one.

image

And Ryan Glasgow was the best of the Glasgows. Remember when about this time one year there were practice reports that Glasgow was ahead of Ondre Pipkins? Larry Harrison was a planetoid starter until he was kicked off the team for creepiness.

#68: Mike Martin (2009-'11), Greg Ellis (1971-'72), and Robert Kolesar (1941-'42). FYI 1947-'48 star OG Stu Wilkins played linebacker on defense when Crisler wasn't inventing the platoon system to get him off the field)
#54: Steve Graves (1976-'77), Donnie Warner (1973), Ernest Pederson Jr. (1936)

All backups no starters number:
#61: Alex Callahan (1957-'58), (Donald Dugger 1951, '53), Lloyd Henevald (1948-'49), John Gallagher (1943), Stanley Broadnax (1965), Nate Rodgers (1983-'84)

Enough of these:
#93 is the jersey they give planetoids who don't pan out: Alex Ofili, Jason Kates, Marques Slocum, Ray Edmonds, Erik Knuth, Jason Ptak, and Ron Kocan—they all share Ofili's single start.

Bring it back:
#65: It had a great run after Dominic Tomasi then went to backups in the '70s and disappeared thereafter.

Defensive Tackle (DT, 3T, 3-4 DE, 4-3 under 5T) #11

Francis Wistert, Albert Wistert, Alvin Wistert

image

So 60 has Messner, and Buster Stanley. 97 has Hutch and a pair of decent early 2000s DTs. 77 has two All-Americans, one of whom goes by "Sheriff" because prior to playing for Michigan Milan Lazetich was the sheriff of his Montana town.

But we have to talk about the Wisterts, who mic-dropped their retired number for this position before we even got to the second half of the 20th century. The Wisterts would be the Hughes family if all three played for Michigan (Jack after 10 years of doing manual labor). Except it was football, and they all played both ways in three different eras: Francis for Kipke, Albert for Crisler, and Alvin for Oosterbaan. All three were All-Americans. All three are members of the College Football Hall of Fame. Between them they have four national championships.

Francis "Whitey" Wistert was the eldest of five children of Lithuanian immigrants—their father was a police officer killed in the line of duty when Whitey was 15. At 6'2"/210 he was big for his era, a star on the offensive line. In an era of misdirection on misdirection Whitey defensively was particularly hard to fool. Third brother Albert "Ox" Wistert was the most talented and second to play for Michigan. His line play was cited as the reason Michigan beat Notre Dame in '42, a game that was only slightly less important than the War. Second bro Alvin "Moose" Wistert was the third to come to Michigan, the largest of the three, and the least likely to end up a Michigan football star. Moose dropped out of high school worked in a factory until WWII, when he served in the Marines. He took the GI bill to Boston University at Age 30 then transferred to Michigan. He was the defensive star of the championship '47 and '48 teams, and captain of the '49 team, at 33.

Other contenders:
#72 Robert Wahl, Jim Orwing (1955-'57), Bill Pritula ('46-'48), James Balog (1952-'53), Clement Bauman (1944), John Yanz (1963-'64)
#60: Mark Messner, Buster Stanley, Grant Bowman
#97 Chris Hutchinson, Shawn Lazarus, Will Johnson, Jeff Perlinger, Chris Ziemann
#68: Albert Wistert for a year, Stu Wilkins, Gregory Ellis
#75 : Bill Yearby, Bruce Hilkene, Richard Williams, Ralph Stribe, Doug Troszak, William Kolesar
#76: Trent Zenkewicz, Tom Johnson, Ed Meads, Jon Schopf, Mike Leoni, Ralph Kohl, Charles Ruzicka
#61: Alex Callahan, Don Dugger, John Marcum, John Gallagher, Lloyd Heneveld, Nate Rogers
#90: Ninef Aghakhan, Norman Heuer, Michael Keller, Juaquin Feazell, Chris Godfrey, Vinny DeFelice

Enough of these:
So much of recent history had Greg Mattison or Brady Hoke coaching the DL and they're really good at finding and developing this kind of guy. Plus, like, do you want a number nobody's worn since 1969 (74?). All numbers are open for DTs.

Bring it back:
#91: Josh Williams had 34 starts, only two other tackles have worn it.
#39: Henry Hill, Edwin Poorman Will Heininger. Everyone who wore it started.
#80: Alan Branch is all alone.
#11: Surely we can find a dollop of Wistertian blood today to be worthy of unretiring this. Cross with some Glasgow genes and let's goooooo!

-----------------------------------------------

Defensive End/Edge: #56

LaMarr Woodley (2003-'06), James Hall (1997-'99), Bill Hewitt (1929-'31), Edgar Madsen (1924)

image

This is a weird position grouping: I included all work done as a 4-3 defensive end (4-3 under 5-techs went with the DTs) all the way out to 3-4 OLBs, so we're including weakside ends, SAMs, and all of those 5-2 Oklahoma ends from the '60s and '70s. Basically guys expected to pass rush and hold the edge of the line.

I think when I announced I was doing this people figured #56 would take this position because of Woodley and Hall. Once glance below at the competition should tell you that wouldn't have cut it. The number nearly disappeared when budding star sophomore end Edgar Madsen suddenly died of pneumonia in 1924:

image

…and the Daily suggested his number be retired.

What did put them over the top was Bill Hewitt, an NFL hall of famer, whose number 56 was retired by the Chicago Bears when he left as the last NFL player to refuse to wear a helmet. He played end and fullback for Michigan and was the MVP of the '31 team that had Maynard Morrison, Charles Bernard, Harry Newman, Ted Petoskey, and a Wistert on it.

After Hewitt, reserve end Chester Stabovitz (name team!) then 1937-'38 starter Vincent Valek wore it.

James Hall burst into opponents' backfields by earning a starting job as a true sophomore in 1997. As with Woodley, they'd call Hall an "RLB" as the weakside end of Michigan's base 4-3 Under; Hall went on to a productive NFL career as an undersized yet unblockable edge rusher. As for Woodley, here's an insane and grainy video that includes videogame clips until Wolverine Historian makes us a better one:

Other contenders:
#86 John Anderson (1975-'77), Martin Davis (1990-'92), Gene Knutson (1952-'53), Gary Prahst (1957-'58), Oswald Clark (1948-'50), Bob Brown (1962), Steve Thibert (1985-'87) Donald Eeaton (1972-'73)
#47: Bennie Oosterbaan, Jake Ryan
#81: Glen Steele (1994-'97) the half of the time they weren't in an under, Dan Jilek (1974-'75), Mike Rotunno (1954-'55), John Halstead (1958-'59), Gene Topp (1951-'53), John Henderson (1963), Bob Boshoven (1957)
#99: Robert Thompson (1979-'82), Dominic Tedesco (1975-'77), Pierre Woods (2002-'05), Jake Frysinger (2001)
#88: Elmer Madar (1942-'46), Craig Roh (2009-'12), Harry Allis (1948-'50) Ron Kocan (1962), Bill Freehan (1960), Bob Rennebohm (1943)
#91: Matt Dyson (1991-'93), Tom Seabron (1976-'78), Walt Williamson (1971-'73), Rondell Biggs (2004-'06), Phil Seymour (1970), David Ray (1950-'51)
#55: Brandon Graham (2006-'09), Dale Keitz (1977-'78), Jibreel Black (2010-'11), Rasheed Simmons (1994-'96), and bits from Gannon Dudlar, Dhani Jones and Cecil Pryor
#90: Tim Jamison (2007-'08), Jake Ryan (2011), Michael Keller (1969), Juaquin Feazell (1996-'98)
#6: Paul Goebel as a junior (1921—he wore #1 in his All-American year), Victor Hobson (1999-2002), David Bowens (1995-'96), Prescott Burgess (played SAM in 2005)

Enough of these:
#95: That one Alain Kashama game is carrying this alone. Whiffs including Patrick Kratus, Chris Rock and Bob Rosema
#93: Three starts by soph and jr Mike Lemirade in the '80s are the contributions from 20 seasons of edge guys wearing this, most recently Chris Rodgers and Lawrence Marshall (who'll contribute at DT this year if he ever does)

Bring it back:
#6: The four guys above are the only edge players to wear it, and single digits are cool.

-----------------------------------------------

Middle Linebacker: #37

Jarrett Irons (1993-'96), Erick Anderson (1988-'91), Tony Rio (1957-'59), Tom Kee (1972), Chris Graham (2005-'07), Zach Kaufman (2000-'03), Mel Anthony (1963), and Jake Ryan as a redshirting freshman

image

I'm sorry, but if you were expecting another number to stand for Michigan middle linebackers you shouldn't have sent a guy born in 1979 to make the picks. I'm all about the doom squirrel archetype that Larry Foote and Ian Gold pioneered after, but there was something about a thumpin' neck-rolled bad-ass screaming up the middle and ending a guy that shaped my early understanding for good defense, and that's all thanks to Mr. Anderson and Mr. Irons. Anderson doesn't have a highlight reel but start The Game of 1991 at 12:00 and start counting how often 37 is around the ball.

With Anderson still fresh in memory, Irons came up, and starting tackling everything in sight. He was named captain his junior year in 1995 and by the end of 1996 he led Michigan in career tackles. I might have written in my high school paper that Sam Sword should switch to 37 in '97 since 93 is a weird number for a linebacker.

Here are all the MLBs, WLBs, plus fullbacks (the original linebackers), centers (the original middle linebackers), and a handful of 5-3 era right guards. Tony Rio, who also played some offense but let Gene Sisinyak take most of those snaps, lost most of his junior year in '58 for leading gambling ring. Rio pled to a misdemeanor and came back to captain the '59 team, when his famous luck led to a nine fumble recoveries.

Mel Anthony switched to full-time offense in 1963 when the NCAA eased the 1952 platooning restrictions but he was a good linebacker before that. Tom Kee was a 2nd team All-American to both the AP and UPI in 1972 playing weakside linebacker in Bo's 5-2 defense that gave up just 57 points all year and would have finished unbeaten but for a legendary referee jobbing in Columbus.

More recently we've had Chris Graham, who is not related to Brandon and should definitely not be lined up on a slot receiver, but was a decent and longtime starter. Zach Kaufman too was rather unheralded for mostly okay play, but his reputation was salvaged by the drop-off in WLB play after he was injured in 2002.

Other contenders:
#48: President Gerald R. Ford (1932-'34), Desmond Morgan (2012-'14), Jack Weisenburger (1946-'47), Dave Dobreff (1990-'93)
#33 Mike Taylor (1970-'71), Don Lund (1942-'44), Carl Russ (1973-'74), Wayne Sparkman (1962-'63), Tom Peterson (1947-'48), James Byers (1957), Marrell Evans (2008)
#57: Maynard Morrison (1929-'31), Tim Anderson (1983-'84), James Dickey (1958), Chris Singletary (1997-'98)
#53: Dick O'Shaughnessy (1951-'53), Jerry Goebel (1955-'57), Mel Owens (1977-'79), Thomas Cecchini (1963-'65), Robert Erben (1948-'49)
#2: Jack Blott (1923), Ernie Vick (1921), Cedric Smith (1915-'16), and future M coach Elton Wieman (1917)

Enough of these:
#51: With respect to Jerry Smith, lately this has been Eric Brackins, Max Pollack, Michael Ferns, and walk-ons. Shoulda stopped at John Duerr

Bring it back:
#93. The other positions aren't doing anything with it, and Sword!

-----------------------------------------------

Safeties & Hybrids: #25

Tom Curtis (1967-'69), Ernest Shazor (2002-'04), Dymonte Thomas (2014-'16)

image

[Right: Fuller]

This position has given me trouble every edition of this series because of the long safety drought in the 2000s. The great old ones weren't a lot of help either because they often stashed some fast guy who couldn't hit back there to prevent the offense from punting when it wasn't their turn (this was a problem until the 1960s). Around the time Bo arrived teams began moving their fullback into a position very similar to the Viper in Don Brown's defense, and Bo changed the term to "Wolfman". Eventually the wolfman or whatever other cool name you could come up with became the strong safety. I counted those and modern Vipers.

Choosing a number was tough: the leaders all have two All-American seasons plus a decent player then a drop-off. For #3 I told myself I would count Marlin's cornerback work there—his year at safety was good but injured after six games. But Tripp Welborne had two A-A seasons in A-squared and Stevie Brown was good as a senior at Spur—Shonte Peoples played on some good defenses but I mostly recall him getting beat. I had another out with #35, with two great safeties from Bo's early years. But Chuck Winters as 3rd guy over Dymonte or even Stevie? Nuh.

So let's finally acknowledge Mr. Ernest Shazor's Thorpe season, which gets dogged for being too hitty and not enough coveragey but it was majorly hitty. And 'twas that hitty that saved the season:

Let's also acknowledge that Tom Curtis is probably the best safety in Michigan history (Dave Brown '72-'74 is the competition). Arriving as a quarterback Curtis moved to safety before his sophomore season and started 8 games as a sophomore, setting Michigan's single-game INT record with three against Illinois—he had 7 that year. He wasn't done, picking off 10 balls in '68, and 8 more in 1969. Never actually that fast, Curtis nevertheless dominated by reading the offense. His 25 interceptions in the pre-let's-pass-a-lot era remain a school record.

Dymonte Thomas was good, never exceptional, splitting time at strong safety with Delano Hill in 2015 then starting at free safety for the even better 2016 defense after a few underclass years when we wondered if he might be moved to receiver. Dymonte was the best at corralling slippery dudes in open space, a useful skill in a Big Ten era with Saquon Barkley, Ezekiel Elliott, J.T. Barrett, Curtis Samuel, Akrum Wadley, Lorenzo Harrison and Ty Johnson in it.

Other contenders:
#3: Tripp Welborne (1988-'90), Marlin Jackson (part of 2003), Shonte Peoples (1992-'93), Stevie Brown (2007-'09), Marvin Robinson (2010-'12)
#35: Don Dufek (1973-'75), Tom Darden (1969-'71), Chuck Winters (1993-'95), Dieter Haren (1984)
#17: Dwight (1975-'77) and Ivan (1984-'86) Hicks, Otis Williams (1990-'91), Clarence Thompson (1993), Deollo Anderson (1992)
#14: Tony Gant (1983-'86), Frank Gusich (1970-'71), Josh Metellus (2017), Josh Furman (2013)
#41: Randy Logan (1971-'72) and Tommy Hendricks (1997-'99)
#49: Rich Volk (1964-'66), Chuch Ortmann (1950), Bob Ptaceck (1958)

Enough of these:
#19: Willis Barringer is the only 19 to start, and he only started so much (17 games!) because of Angry Michigan Safety-Hating God.

Bring it back:
#85: Michigan was later than most schools to go to a pair of safeties after offenses began using split ends as receivers in the early 1950s because Lowell Perry, one of those fancy new receivers himself, could cover ground like a modern NFL free safety.

-----------------------------------------------

Cornerback: #3

Marlin Jackson (2002, '04), John Maulbetsch (1915-'16), Todd Howard (1999-'02), Marion Body (1980-'82)

image

The other reason I didn't use 3 above because we've got three All-American seasons from two guys, and a lot of starts from the backup cast. Historically halfbacks played something closer to what a safety does today—it wasn't until the 1960s that platoon football created a need for guys who can cover a crazy receiving target on his own.

We'll start with the guy you haven't met a bunch of times, because he's more local. John "Maulie" Maulbetsch grew up in Ann Arbor (Pioneer), but transferred to Michigan at 21 after a year at Adrian College, where Maulie beat up on Yost's freshman squad. Yost called him "Another Willie Heston" which would be like someone using the Barry Sanders tag today. In his first year playing for Michigan Malbetsch was nicknamed the "German Bullet" or the "Human Bullet" because dude was known to scream down from his halfback (think of a Cover 2 safety) position into whatever gap was being tried. He won national notoriety by nearly beating Harvard singlehandedly in 1914 (his All-American season), and was blamed for Harvard canceling the rematch in Ann Arbor in 1915. They needn't have bothered: Maulbetsch was out with appendicitis that year and came back not quite himself. But he recovered to captain the 1916 team. Tiny even for his day he was nicknamed the "Featherweight Fullback" as a pro, and is a member of the College Football Hall of Fame. Michigan gives out the John Maulbetsch Award to their favorite freshman every year. That has a nickname too.

The 2002 recipient of the Maulbetsch Award was Marlin Jackson, who switched to Maulie the Human Bullet German Bullet Featherweight Fullback Another Willie Heston's number after his (Marlin's) freshman season. That freshman season was promising but didn't say anything about an All-American sophomore performance, when he wracked up PBUs and tackles. In 2003 Marlin tried to solve that nagging free safety problem himself, then turned down the NFL for another All-American senior season when he did as much as Braylon to send a freshman-quarterbacked team to the Rose Bowl. Marlin's 2002 game against Washington star receiver Reggie Williams is one of the greatest single-game performances in Michigan history. Marlin is also well known to this here site because he went on to found the Fight For Life Foundation, a super-modern, model youth services charity that we'd believe in strongly even if it wasn't created by one of the greatest players in Michigan football history.

I didn't leave much room to talk about Todd Howard, who's joined us for a number of events, mostly in Chicago, since he now coaches in his native(ish*) Bolingbrook. In his playing days Todd was the short cornerback we complained about less because James Whitley was a bigger issue, but spoiled as we were by Woodson, we couldn't appreciate a solid undersized guy who could tackle. Howard would start 34 games for Michigan from 1999-'01, when he played opposite Mr. Jackson above.

* (Todd grew in Southfield, same grade, different elementaries, just across Telegraph from me, but we both moved away before middle school)

We were too young to remember Marion Body who was recruited by Jack Harbaugh and ended up being coached by Harbaugh's replacement Lloyd Carr. Body was inserted as the fist dimeback in the history of football in 1980 as part of Michigan's plan to stop Purdue's potent shotgun passing attack; Body collected one of four interceptions thrown that day by up-to-then Heisman frontrunner Mark Herrmann. Body also picked off two against Notre Dame that year, but is best known for getting called for pass interference to set up ND's winning kick. He started most of '81 and '82 at cornerback, but they learned to stay away from Body's field side after '80. Or the dance he did after they stuffed Illinois:

Other contenders:
#18: Bump Elliott (1947), Jim Pickens (1975-'76), Blake Countess (2011-'13), Leo Koceski (1948-'49), Ralph Chubb (1946), James Rogers (2010)
#16: Mike Jolly (1977-'79), Paul White (1941-'43, '46), Fred Julian (1957-'59), Ed Shannon (1954-'56), Ralph Chubb (1944), Willie Heston, Jr. (1930)
#22: Ty Law (1992-'94), Lance Dottin (1989-'91), Jim Bolden (1975-'76), Glenn Doughty (1969-'70), David Long (2017-?), Gerald White (1984)
#30: Bradley Cochran (1983-'85), Andre Weathers (1997-'98), Markus Curry (2002-'04)
#14: Morgan Trent (2005-'08), Harry Kipke (1921), Dick Sygar (1963-' 64), Don Oldham (1951-'52), Mike Shatusky (1957), Gary McNitt (1960), and Dick "Pick" Vick …sorry, sorry, growing up now (1923)

Enough of these:
#5: James "Future Star of the XFL" Whitley, Courtney Avery, Coleman Wallace who played as turned around as his name, and Charles Stewart. As long as we count Peppers at safety (I do).

Bring it back:
#46: Used to be a big number for Michigan halfbacks.

-----------------------------------------------

Special Teams: #19

Remy Hamilton Mike Gillette, Bob Bergeron, Carl Ward, Ronald Bellamy

image

Three of Michigan's greatest kickers all wore the same number so I had to go with this one over 6, but check out 6 after.

Bob Bergeron was the tiny guy with a huge leg. A walk-on, Bergeron held plackekicking duties for 1983 and '84, going 28/32, earning one all-conference decision and, that Iowa game, and a pizza. After Bergeron Mike Gilette, an all-state quarterback with MAC offers to play under center, took the same number and became the leading scorer in Michigan history thanks to 53 FGs, 130 XPs, and that touchdown—also his 56-yarder is the longest by a Michigan kicker. Gillette was also a strong punter, averaging 40 yards as the team's punter in 1988. Remy Hamilton, who kicked from 1993 to 1996, holds most of the volume Michigan records: five in game, 30 in a season, 63 in a career, 82 attempts. His 4-4 performance vs Notre Dame in 1994 is among the best outings for a Michigan kicker, even if he couldn't tackle Mike Miller.

Carl Ward was a backup running back and all-around offensive weapon who helped Michigan get back to the Rose Bowl in 1964. Naturally he was the kick returner for 1964-'66 (more on the punt returner in a moment). Ron Bellamy was Michigan's primary punt returner in 2000, averaging 11 yards per return though he only ever broke one long (against Rice). He was also a fixture on kickoff and punt units since he got down the field faster than anyone else on the team.

Other contenders:

#6: KR Tyrone Wheatley, PK Ali Haji-Sheikh, PR David Brown (3 punt return TDs from 1972-'74), PK Peter Elezovic, KOS Troy Nienberg (2001-'02, also wore 10)
#3: Ross Ryan, Robert Wood (1973-'76), Brandon Kornblue (1996-'97), Marlin Jackson (his only punt return was the Wisconsin TD), Tripp Welbourne, Quinn Nordin, Brad Robbins
#1: Six return TDs between Derrick Alexander (4) and Anthony Carter (2)
#38: Garrett Rivas (2003-'06), JD Carlson (1989-'91), Erik Lovell (1993-'94), Jason Vinson (1995-'98)

Enough of these:

#34: Since Brabbs it's been Gingell, the scholarship guy who was so bad it doomed the Rodriguez years to walk-ons, and Gibbons, who was a good kicker who should have been removed from the team his redshirt season. There's also Justin Fargas who couldn't catch a kickoff. Retire it for Brabbs.

Bring it back:

#12: For now (Chris Evans be comin'), the last player to wear #12 at Michigan for an entire career remains cornerback/gunner Brandon Williams (1999-'02), who collected that muffed punt return against Wisconsin and delightfully didn't know he couldn't run it in. B-Will, one of the fastest players in Michigan history, is probably the best gunner we've ever had. George Hoey wore it in the mid-'60s and averaged 17 yards per punt return in 31 returns, with 1 TD. Peppers, for reference, averaged 13.1 yards, and Derrick Alexander was at 12.7 despite 4 TDs. Blake O'Neill had that bad thing but until then it was the best game by a punter in Michigan history. Also in '89 there was a kicker named Gulam Khan, which is just a perfect setup for a kicker at a nerd school. More 12's on special teams.

Nope. You need more than one dude there or else this is just a silly "Let's name the best player at each position" exercise and thus boring. The only corners or halfbacks (in the single platoon era) to wear 2 were Woodson and one year of Blake Countess that wasn't his best year. JT Turner rode pine.

When does 2 get retired? Howards was given a legends patch in 2011 (20 years after his college career ended). Althought the official retirement came in 2015 with the end of the legends program.

Coming up on 21 years since Woodson.

Sorry, I'm about the same age as you and when I close my eyes and picture an all time defense it is #3 at Safety (Tripp Welborne) and #2 at Corner (Woodson may be the only one.....but he was the GOAT).

Being the managing editor of Instinct Magazine has been a fun, rewarding, and stressful job for the past couple of years.  It's been a joy to be able to have a great mix of voices represented on our platform.  We have demographically varied contributing writers from New York, Philadelphia, Fort Lauderdale, Nashville, Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and Liverpool, UK. 

We also get to see that demographic variance in our readers.  We are made aware of our audience by he many submissions of stories as well as being tagged heavily on Instagram: @instinctmagazine . Instead of keeping those tweets in house, we thought we would share some of our favorites of this last week.


We were hoping this one was going to be a video, but alas, no, it was just a pic from @will_simons_photography . Many of the tags we receive are businesses trying to promote, models trying to get traction, so this one is a combination, giving us great pics and a variety of men looking to get some traction.

          Police Investigating Random South Loop Sucker Punches       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
So strange and unfortunate (via ABC7):
Chicago police are investigating several seemingly random attacks on people near CTA stops in the South Loop.

The victims are punched in the face with no warning or provocation.

Alan Lee has no clue why he was targeted, but his attack left him with a broken nose, concussion and swollen jaw.

"I remember seeing a quick glance of him and his fist winding up, and that's all I really remember. Then I'm on the ground and people were yelling," Lee said.

Lee was with his fiancee walking on Roosevelt near State around 5 p.m. Saturday. They were steps away from the Roosevelt CTA Red Line stop when they said a man emerged from a parking lot and landed a sucker punch before running away.

Be on guard peeps.

I certainly do not believe that being an Ivy graduate is any guarantee of being 'best and brightest', quote the contrary: see for example my post <a href="https://chicagoboyz.net/archives/50249.html">The Ivy League and American Society</a>. But that's not really especially relevant to the point of Goldberg's post: that universities, and not only those in the Ivy League, are actively selling the message of the badness of American society. I'm not convinced of his other point that this has anything to do with capitalism, England was not a very capitalist country when Bacon made the quoted observation.

Not true. I met Tony Taylor and he did not have batteries thrown at him. The fans hurt Richie's performance by not appreciating his performance. His children were tormented as well. Chicago welcomed him and treated him much better than the Phillies did. Racism in Philly was very popular and it was a shame for Richie. The difference was Richie did not put up with it. He later beat Reggie Jackson two out of three years in home runs because Chicago appreciated him and the Phillies did not. It was good in the end to see his return to Philly and see them win the division. Jimmy

          By the numbers: Unprecedented devastation of California's wildfires      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Wildfires have turned California into a smoke-filled, hazardous landscape as thousands of firefighters — some from as far away as Australia and New Zealand — struggle to contain more than a dozen massive blazes. Many of these fires began during July, which was a brutally hot month across the state.

Why it matters: The unprecedented wildfire siege has killed at least 9 people and burned thousands of homes and businesses across the state. There is no sign of any beneficial rains to come, and we're not yet at the peak of the fire season, which normally comes in the fall. In other words, the situation may get worse before it gets better.


By the numbers:

  • The Mendocino Complex Fire, which is comprised of two large wildfires burning within a few miles of one another, has become the first California wildfire on record to eclipse 300,000 acres in size. This is equivalent to the size of Los Angeles, which is the sixth-largest city in the U.S.
  • There is a trend, driven by climate change, decades of fire management policies and human development, toward larger fires in California. Heat is a big factor in these fires.
  • California had its hottest month on record in July, with average temperatures at 5°F above the 20th Century average. Death Valley, California, set a record for the hottest month of any location on Earth, NOAA found.
  • Out of the top 20 largest wildfires in California history, only one occurred before 1950.
  • All of the top 10 largest wildfires have taken place during the past decade, with four out of the top 5 occurring since 2010.
  • California has seen 4,723 wildfires since Jan. 1, with 749,770 acres burned so far this year, according to Cal Fire and the U.S. Forest Service. This is well above the 5-year average of 18,587 acres burned by this date.
  • The acres burned in California so far is equal to almost four times the city of New York, three-quarters of the state of Rhode Island and is more than four times the city of Chicago.

The bottom line: Given where we are in the fire season, it's likely that the area burned in California this year will eclipse 1 million acres. The Mendocino Complex, for example, is not expected to be controlled — let alone completely extinguished — until sometime in September.

  • And we've yet to see the fire danger spike in southern California, which typically comes in the fall, when strong Santa Ana winds blow hot, dry air down mountainsides and through canyons, threatening a highly populated region.

          Dr. Rex John LeBlanc      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Dr. Rex John LeBlanc, 86, passed away peacefully Friday, August 3, 2018 at his home in Lafayette, surrounded by his family.
Funeral services will be held Saturday, August 11, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. at Fountain Memorial Funeral Home in Lafayette. Father Bryce Sibley, Pastor of Our Lady of Wisdom Catholic Church, will officiate. A rosary will be recited by Deacon Frank Cormier on Friday, August 10, 2018 at 2:30 p.m. at Fountain Memorial Funeral Home in Lafayette. Visitation will be Friday, August 10, 2018 from 3:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and Saturday, August 11, 2018 from 8:00 a.m. until the time of service.
Dr. LeBlanc was a devoted son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, and a member of the Acadiana community. He brought nurture, compassion, and fun to his interactions with family, friends, colleagues, and acquaintances alike, and was well loved in return by all who knew him.
Dr. LeBlanc was born in Abbeville, Louisiana in 1931. Growing up, he loved playing football at Abbeville High School and football remained a passion throughout his life. From 1951 to 1955, during the Korean War, he served in the United States Navy. He was proud to be a medic for the Marine Corps, but it was his time in the Psychiatric Ward of the San Diego Hospital that moved him to start a career in mental health.
He earned his bachelor’s degree from University of Southwestern Louisiana (now University of Louisiana, Lafayette, ULL), and continued playing football while there. He went on to earn his doctorate degree from Baylor University in Waco, Texas. His Baylor legacy includes training primates for NASA to test the effects of space travel on motor coordination.
He worked as a professor of psychology and an experimental psychologist at ULL for 20 years, and was renowned for both encouraging and entertaining fellow faculty and students. While there, he collaborated on projects with the New Iberia Primate Research Center, and with Louisiana mental health services to establish the Pollux House for runaway girls.
He met Sonja Faye Mallet while teaching at ULL, and they were married in 1964. Rex and Sonja shared a deep compassion for others and a love of family and children. They had four children together, and Sonja later joined him in the mental health field. Rex and Sonja had a weekend get-away camp in Vermillion Parish where they loved to entertain family, friends, and colleagues, including the hosting of annual Super Bowl parties; his friends bestowed awards upon him over the years for best crawfish étoufée and barbeque.
After retiring from ULL, Dr. LeBlanc took an administrative position at the Acadiana Mental Health Clinic. He also conducted psychological testing for local schools and clinical psychologists until last year.
Dr. LeBlanc’s community and professional affiliations included the Krewe of Gabriel, the Krewe of Oberon, and the American Psychological Association. He enjoyed music, literature, movies, and local festivals. He was highly respected and well-liked. He will be deeply missed by his family, friends, and colleagues.
Dr. LeBlanc is survived by his beloved wife of 54 years, Sonja LeBlanc of Lafayette; their children, Michelle LeBlanc of Falls Church, VA and her partner, Lawrence Benade, Rex John LeBlanc II of Broussard, LA and his wife, Kelli, Andrea LeBlanc of Los Angeles, CA and her husband, Jan Chaitas, and Stephen LeBlanc of New Orleans, LA; one sister, Dorothy LeBlanc of Baton Rouge, LA; three grandsons, Jean-Paul Pierre LeBlanc, Aiden Rex LeBlanc and Ian James LeBlanc; honorary daughters, Lynn Smith and Sandra Frederick; and numerous dear nieces, nephews and friends.
He was preceded in death by his parents, John Adelbert and Azilie Lege LeBlanc; and his siblings, Eunice LeBlanc, Eric LeBlanc, and Darnella Milliman.
Pallbearers will be Rex John LeBlanc, II, Stephen LeBlanc, Lynn Smith, Eddie Milliman, Jan Chaitas, and Larry Benade.
The family wishes to thank everyone who supported them and Dr. LeBlanc this year, with special thanks to the staffs at Lafayette General Medical Center, Lafayette Extended Care, and Lafayette Physical Rehabilitation Hospital.
Memorials may be made in Dr. LeBlanc’s name to the Alzheimer’s Association, 225 N. Michigan Ave., Floor 17, Chicago, IL, 60601, (504) 613-6505, www.alz.org, or NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) Acadiana via NAMI Acadiana, PO Box 51903. Lafayette, LA, 70505-1903, (337) 504-4752, or email at nami@namiacadiana.org.
Fountain Memorial Funeral Home and Cemetery at 1010 Pandora St. in Lafayette, (337) 981-7098, is handling arrangements.

          The best educational YouTube channels for kids      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

I’ve long had a complicated relationship with screen time for my young sons, but have come to see its benefits, especially if the focus is on quality over quantity. This has inspired me to publish lists of my favorite TV shows for young kids and for families; a compilation of educational videos; and a list of recommended apps. Now for the next frontier: YouTube. My ten-year-old LOVES “Geography Now!” and “Extra History,” from which he’s learned at least ten times more social studies than he has from Montgomery County Public Schools. It feels like a miracle that there’s such good content being produced, and makes me wonder what else we should be sampling.

To that end, I had our Fordham Institute research interns take a spin around the yonders of YouTube, and I asked for help from our readers. Many thanks to those of you who responded.

Now, after checking out these offerings myself, and without further ado, here are the best YouTube channels for learning for tweens and teens, circa the summer of 2018.

History and geography

  • Crash Course (8,010,109 subscribers). This is the granddaddy of educational YouTube, created by Hank and John Green, aka the Vlogbrothers, the latter of whom is already familiar to young readers as the New York Times best-selling author of The Fault in Our Stars. They have built a huge library of videos across most major disciplines, including playlists of forty-eight videos on U.S. history, seventy-two on world history, and fifty on U.S. government and politics. Each episode is generally ten to fifteen minutes long and features John Green talking about the subject, mixed in with some humor and animations.  


  • Extra Credits Extra History (1,486,295 subscribers). Extra Credits started as a channel for gamers, especially those interested in historical war games, like Empire Total War (yes this is a thing). And it still has a lot of content about gaming, but its creators also now make videos about history itself. They are up to over two hundred at last count, ranging all across the world and various epochs. Many are focused on military history (understandable given the channel’s genesis), with occasional diversions. Their vast offerings allow them to deeply explore topics. They dedicate four episodes, for a total of more than forty minutes, to the Punic Wars, for example. Compelling narration and cute animations combine for addictive viewing for budding history buffs.


  • The Great War (875,694 subscribers). The prize for in-depth coverage goes to this channel, which follows the history of World War I, one week at a time. Do the math and you get over two hundred videos, at about ten minutes a pop, looking at the war from every angle. Historical video footage, endless maps, and an informed narrator add up to a great experience, though the endless trench warfare can be a slog. (I know, I know, not as much as living through the real thing.)


  • Geography Now! (1,016,565 subscribers). Affable host Paul Barbado takes viewers on a trip around the world, with fifteen- to twenty-minute episodes on a given country. He’s working his way alphabetically through all two hundred-plus nations; at last count he made it to the M’s. It’s a bit like a video version of an encyclopedia entry, but with dashes of humor and silly graphics to boot.


Science and nature

  • Vsauce (13,375,579 subscribers). Founder and star Michael Stevens didn’t start out making educational videos, but his background in comedy and video editing makes his science-oriented channel hugely engaging, as his massive following demonstrates. He enjoys taking viewers “on a journey,” starting with big questions, like “How much does a shadow weigh?” and “What color is a mirror?” He’s Bill Nye the Science Guy for the YouTube generation.


  • The Brain Scoop (468,108 subscribers). Host Emily Graslie got her start with Hank and John Green, and was recruited by Chicago’s Field Museum to be its “chief curiosity correspondent.” Yes, it’s a dream job. If Michael Stevens is the new Bill Nye, she’s the new Ms. Frizzle. And not surprisingly given her employer, expect a lot of videos on the living world—both today and in the ancient past.


Literature

  • Crash Course Literature (8,010,109 subscribers). As noted above, this is the granddaddy of educational YouTube, created by Hank and John Green. Their video library includes a playlist of forty-five videos on literature. The classics covered include Romeo & Juliet, Catcher in the Rye, The Handmaids Tale, and many more.


Math

  • Khan Academy (4,069,528 subscribers). Surely the best-known educational outpost on the interwebs, Khan Academy’s YouTube channel is a gateway to the more extensive offerings on its own platform. But for quick refreshers and explainers, these videos are hard to beat.


  • Vihart (1,255,570 subscribers). Created by Victoria Hart, a self-described “full-time recreational mathemusician,” this channel strives to make math cool. If Khan Academy is Microsoft, Vihart is Apple. It may not help you cram for your calculus test, but it will surely expand your mind. Her mesmerizing, almost poetic video “How I feel about logarithms” has over 1.2 million views at last count; “Doodling in Math Class: DRAGONS” has over 5 million. Not bad for videos of a hand scribbling numbers—and dragons—with thoughtful insights about math.


Did we leave a great channel off the list? Let us know at mpetrilli[at]edexcellence.net.

I was wondering when we'd see the follow up story on the incredible disappearing protest? At some point people in "the community" need to either decide that the gangsta lifestyle isn't all that attractive OR all the decent people need to follow the tens of thousands who've moved away from the worst elements OR they'll all be dead and the violence will end.

          Film Review: ‘Generation Wealth’ Tells Us What We Already Know      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

CHICAGO – When it comes to really being rich, what do we already know? Money doesn’t buy happiness. Family and friendship connections are more important than accumulation. Yet those simple lessons keep being broken up by the excess of more, the values of which are in the documentary “Generation Wealth.”

HollywoodChicago.com Oscarman rating: 4.0/5.0
Rating: 4.0/5.0

Directed by photographer/filmmaker Lauren Greenfield, “Generation Wealth” is a hodge podge of different stories that eventually add up to those truths that we all know. However, the journey to get there takes different paths, and often those paths are paved with gold. Attitudinally, we all currently live in a society that values the benefits of wealth over anything else (if we’re being honest with ourselves). And basically, the profiles in the film are about those values… the ones that elected a a “rich” (yet fundamentally sociopathic) man as president, the ones that have two billionaires running for a state governor’s office that becomes only an excuse to own something else, and the ones that have people waiting in line to buy a thousand dollar phone (trading in one that works perfectly fine) while in another part of the city 50 people are shot in one weekend. Yeah, the film will make you think about all this.

Lauren Greenfield has spent over 25 years as a successful photographer, cultural essayist and filmmaker. What she began to realize is that the major theme of all her work was the lifestyles of the wealthy in America and internationally. To make the film (along with the book companion and gallery display) she begins to examine the victims in the pursuit of wealth, and even herself as their photographer.

Profiled in the film is Cathy, who obsessed on plastic surgery; Florian (and his son Conrad), a hedge fund manager who eventually defrauded his clients; Kacey, a porn star who tasted the good life with Charlie Sheen; Valbjörn, an Icelandic fisherman turned banker turned fisherman; three now-grown high schoolers that were the subject of Greenfield’s first look at Los Angeles excess; and Suzanne, a driven hedge fund exec who finally had time for a baby at 40, but found she couldn’t get pregnant. All came to some conclusions, but do they all stick?

“Generation Wealth” is currently in limited nationwide release, including Chicago. See local listings for theaters and showtimes. Written and directed by Lauren Greenfield. Rated “R”

NBA Rumors: Joakim Noah Could Be Released By NY Knicks If They Can't Trade Him This Summer, Per 'ESPN'

In the two years since he signed a four-year, $73 million contract with the New York Knicks, former Chicago Bulls All-Star Joakim Noah has played just 53 games, averaging only 4.6 points and 7.9 rebounds per game. With another two years remaining on his contract, it appears that the former Defensive Player of the Year might not be returning to New York for the 2018-19 NBA season, as the team is reportedly planning to release him if they can’t find a willing trade partner to take him on.

          Dolar AS Tertekan Picu Harga Emas Melonjak      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Liputan6.com, Chicago - Harga emas berjangka menguat seiring dolar Amerika Serikat (AS) dan imbal hasil obligasi pemerintah melemah. Hal tersebut memberikan dukungan untuk harga emas.

"Harga emas lebih tinggi untuk hari kedua karena ketegangan perdagangan antara AS dan China meningkat dan reli dolar AS mulai mereda," ujar Kepala Riset Saxo Bank, Ole Hansen, seperti dikutip dari laman Marketwatch, Kamis (9/8/2018).

Harga emas untuk pengiriman Desember naik USD 2,7 atau 0,2 persen ke posisi USD 1.221 per ounce. Kenaikan harga emas itu terjadi dalam dua hari berturut-turut. Namun, komoditas ini sebagian besar diperdagangkan dalam rentang yang sempit.

Sementara itu, harga perak untuk pengiriman September naik 5,9 sen atau 0,4 persen ke posisi USD 15.43 per ounce. Harga emas melemah didorong indeks dolar AS yang tertekan. Indeks dolar AS turun 0,1 persen ke posisi 95,16. Sementara itu, imbal hasil obligasi bertenor 10 tahun berada di posisi 2,96 persen.

Dolar AS yang lebih kuat dapat membuat komoditas logam yang dipatok dolar AS kurang menarik bagi pembeli. "Dolar AS yang kuat akhirnya melemah terhadap yuan China. Kini fokus terhadap kenaikan suku bunga AS, dan bursa saham AS yang menguat. Serta kurangnya tekanan inflasi mengurangi daya tarik emas sebagai safe haven. Perubahan dalam jangka pendek terjadi terhadap dolar AS sehingga membawa risiko turun," tambah Hansen.

 

Perang Dagang Juga Bayangi Harga Emas

Ilustrasi Logam Mulia (iStockphoto)#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Ketegangan perang dagang juga jadi perhatian pasar. AS mengumumkan tarif 25 persen terhadap impor barang China senilai USD 16 miliar. Pemerintah China akan membalas. Hal itu mendorong total penerapan tarif 25 persen menjadi USD 50 miliar untuk impor barang China.

Ketegangan perang dagang juga mendorong aksi beli untuk emas sebagai aset safe haven. Selain itu kenaikan suku bunga bank sentral AS juga bayangi harga emas. Bank sentral AS atau the Federal Reserve akan menaikkan suku bunga dua kali lagi pada 2018 dan tiga kali pada 2018. Pertemuan bank sentral AS berikutnya pada September 2018.

Adapun pergerakan harga logam lainnya yaitu harga tembaga turun 0,1 persen menjadi USD 2.751 per pound. Harga platinum susut 0,2 persen menjadi USD 829,50 per ounce. Sedangkan Paladium turun 1,8 persen menjadi USD 886,40 per ounce.

On Tuesday August 14th, the Midland Cultural Centre (MCC) is proud to present multi award-winning quintet GOITSE as the second in their three-concert "Irish Invasion Month" Series!

The popular group was forged in the white-hot creative crucible of Limerick's Irish World Academy. Named Live Ireland's Traditional Group of the Year, Chicago Irish American News' Group of the Year, as well as winning the prestigious Freiburger International Leiter 2016 award in Germany, Goitse have become a leader of the new generation of traditional Irish ensembles.

Goitse has released four critically acclaimed recordings and maintains a year round touring schedule that includes performances throughout Ireland and the UK, Germany, France and the United States. Their distinctive sound lies in the quality of their own compositions interspersed with traditional tunes from the countryside of Ireland and abroad, which make each performance unique. Laying the foundations for the music are World and All-Ireland Bodhrán champion Colm Phelan and Conal O'Kane, who is fast making a name for himself as one of the finest guitarists of his generation. The gripping rhythm section sets a powerful drive for the music while the sweet, charismatic voice of Áine McGeeney draws audiences into a song the way few performers can.

Together, the quintet Goitse makes what Irish Music Magazine calls: "Music that's brimming with energy and creative zeal".

I'll echo the comments about lunch options being few and far between near the Skydeck. You could take a water taxi to Chinatown (https://www.chicagowatertaxi.com/Chicago-River-Boat-Stops/Ogilvie-Union ; approx. 20 minutes). I've been impressed with Minghin Cuisine lately and also enjoy Go4Food. If you were curious about Lost Lake Tiki, you could pair it with Fat Rice or Cellar Door Provisions to make a whole evening out of it. Other options close by include Lula's, Longman & Eagle, Quiote. Note that Half Acre has two locations - their original tap room (which is small and has a food menu largely limited to burritos but is somewhat more centrally located) and a new production facility (which is large and has a bigger food menu but quite a bit farther to the north). Hours vary by location.

          Red-hot voyage to sun will bring us closer to our star      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – A red-hot voyage to the sun is going to bring us closer to our star than ever before.

NASA's Parker Solar Probe will be the first spacecraft to "touch" the sun, hurtling through the sizzling solar atmosphere and coming within just 3.8 million miles of the surface.

It's designed to take solar punishment like never before, thanks to its revolutionary heat shield that's capable of withstanding 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit.

Liftoff is set for the pre-dawn hours of Saturday for this first-of-its-kind mission to a star.

"The coolest, hottest mission, baby, that's what it is," said Nicola Fox, the project scientist at Johns Hopkins University.

Roughly the size of a small car, Parker will get nearly seven times closer to the sun than previous spacecraft. To snuggle up to the sun, it will fly past Venus seven times over seven years. Each flyby will provide an orbit-shaping gravity boost, drawing it ever closer to the sun and straight into the corona – the sun's outermost atmosphere.

The closer, the better for figuring out why the corona is hundreds of times hotter than the sun's surface. Another mystery scientists hope to solve: What drives the solar wind? That's the steady, supersonic stream of charged particles blasting off the corona and into space in all directions.

"There are missions that are studying the solar wind, but we're going to get to the birthplace," Fox said.

Scientists expect the $1.5 billion mission to shed light not only on our own dynamic sun, but the billions of other yellow dwarf stars – and other types of stars – out there in the Milky Way and beyond. While granting us life, the sun also has the power to disrupt spacecraft in orbit, and communications and electronics on Earth.

"This is where we live," said NASA solar astrophysicist Alex Young. "We have to understand and characterize this place that we're traveling through."

The project was proposed in 1958 to a brand-new NASA, and "60 years later, and it's becoming a reality," said project manager Andy Driesman, also of Johns Hopkins, which designed and built the spacecraft. The technology for surviving such a close solar encounter, while still being light enough for flight, wasn't available until now.

Parker's 8-foot heat shield is just 4½ inches thick. Sandwiched between two carbon sheets is airy carbon foam. The front has a custom white ceramic coating to reflect sunlight; it's expected to glow cherry red when bombarded by the extreme solar heat.

Almost everything on the spacecraft will be behind this and thus in room-temperature shade while ducking through the jagged edges of the corona, without so much as a blister on its science instruments.

The spacecraft will hit 430,000 mph in the corona at closest approach. That's equivalent to going from Washington, D.C., to Philadelphia in a split second. Or Chicago to Beijing in under a minute.

This is the first NASA spacecraft to be named after someone still alive.

Eugene Parker, 91, professor emeritus at the University of Chicago, predicted the existence of solar wind 60 years ago. He plans be at Cape Canaveral for the launch. United Launch Alliance's Delta IV Heavy rocket is providing the muscle.

Parker got to inspect the spacecraft last fall. He said he's "holding my breath that everything goes well."

"This is a journey into never-never land, you might say, where it's too hot for any sensible spacecraft to function," Parker told Johns Hopkins' Fox in a recent interview. "But some very clever engineering and construction have succeeded in making what looks like a very workable instrument."

The spacecraft holds photos of Parker as well as a copy of his 1958 research paper on what he termed solar wind. Despite skepticism, NASA's Mariner 2 spacecraft proved Parker right in 1962.

Also on board: more than 1 million names of space fans submitted to NASA this past spring.

It's a fast-paced mission, with the first Venus encounter occurring less than two months after liftoff, in early October, and the first brush with the sun in November.

In all, the spacecraft will make 24 elongated laps around the sun, closer than the orbit of Mercury, the innermost planet. The records will start falling with the first orbit, when the Parker probe comes within 15.5 million miles (25 million kilometers) of the sun and beats the current record holder, NASA's former Helios 2 spacecraft. Helios 2 got within 27 million miles (43 million kilometers) of the sun in 1976.

Fox puts it this way: If the sun and Earth were on opposite ends of a football field, Mercury would be at the sun's 35-yard line, Helios 2 at the 29-yard line and the Parker probe at the 4-yard line.

NASA's Messenger, which orbited Mercury from 2011 to 2015, provided insight into the solar wind but was too away.

"You know something exciting is just around the bend, but where you're sitting you can't see what that is," Fox said. "So really the only way we can now do it is to do this daring mission to plunge into the corona."

The Parker probe's final three orbits – in 2024 and 2025 – will be the closest. The spacecraft eventually will run out of fuel and, no longer able to keep its heat shield pointed toward the sun, will burn and break apart – except perhaps for the rugged heat shield.

"It's a pretty tough shield," said Fox.

Stella Artois Invites You to Gather Friends, Grab a Stella Artois and Tune Into “STELLASPACE” - An Audio Guide to Mastering the Art of Beer Sipping Narrated by Actor Luke EvansFrom Stella Artois::

Beer tasting notes meet mindfulness techniques in the brand’s new audio guide designed to heighten the experience of savoring a Stella Artois

NEW YORK, NY – August 8, 2018 – Today, Stella Artois is asking people to consider a very important question: when was the last time you really savored a beer? Like it or not, life tends to get in the way of simple pleasures like enjoying a beer with friends. That is why Stella Artois is introducing STELLASPACE, an audio guide designed to help people focus on being present and truly enjoying a Stella Artois, narrated by newly anointed savoring expert and actor Luke Evans.

With the boom in mindfulness tools – apps, meditation studios, adult coloring books and other simple aids to help you pay attention to experiences and be present in the moment – Stella Artois sought to fill a white space by providing a way to help people master thoughtfully sipping their beer.  In STELLASPACE Luke Evans personally takes listeners through a 20-minute guide of what to focus on when enjoying a Stella Artois in order to experience the perfect sensory journey. Twenty minutes may seem lengthy, but Stella Artois’ Master Cicerone® Max Bakker, one of only 16 world-renowned beer experts to have earned the illustrious title, determined it’s the optimal time needed to truly appreciate every sip of the full-flavored, classic Belgian lager.

From the ecstatic anticipation of the cold golden liquid meeting your mouth to feeling the tingle of the bubbles and tasting the aromatic flavors, Luke’s narration of STELLASPACE combines personal anecdotes from his fast-paced life and professional conquests (like slaying dragons or fighting criminal masterminds) with Stella Artois’ 600-year brewing legacy, mindfulness techniques from the modern meditation app Inscape, and expert inputs from the acclaimed palate of Master Cicerone® Max Bakker.

“Whether I’m traveling for work, on set for a new film, or dining with friends it’s so important for me to be able to focus completely on the moment,” said Luke Evans, newly anointed savoring expert. “And one of my favorite ways to connect with friends and family is over a cold beer, which is why I think STELLASPACE is brilliant – it provides a fun way to remind people to be present, make the most of their time and of course enjoy a Stella Artois while doing so.”

“STELLASPACE was designed to help people rethink how they enjoy a Stella Artois,” said Harry Lewis, vice president, Stella Artois. “People today live busy, hectic lives and our mission is to help bring more enjoyment to the limited time they do have – because we believe that everything can be made a little better with a great beer and great friends.”

And because beer sipping can happen in many locations and forms - around the dinner table, lounging poolside, or at a local neighborhood spot, partnering with Inscape to create an experience infused with mindfulness techniques allows consumers to become fully present as they savor their Stella Artois, no matter where they are.

“Inscape delivers modern meditation for modern minds. We help people find balance, heighten their awareness and live life to the fullest through unique, immersive experiences,” said Khajak Keledjian, founder and chief executive officer, Inscape. “With the addition of STELLASPACE to the Inscape app, we’re debuting an intentional, sensory experience that mixes mindful techniques and playful cues to explore Stella Artois like never before.”

STELLASPACE is now available by downloading the Inscape app on iTunes to access the full 20-minute guide or previewing a portion on YouTube. So gather the essentials – a cold Stella Artois, the iconic Stella Artois Chalice, a group of friends and some food or nibbles – and prepare to inhale... and exhale… on this journey into STELLASPACE.

The Ultimate Way to Savor a Stella Artois: The Limited-Edition Sip & Savor Chalice

Properly enjoying a Stella Artois is about more than just the time it takes to drink one,  it’s making sure you get the most out of every sip - but the number of sips it takes to enjoy a beer is currently up for debate online. Stella Artois and Master Cicerone® Max Bakker are here to say a Chalice of its premium lager is best consumed in 12 sips...but we won’t judge if it takes you 11, or even 13.

To help ensure you savor properly the next time you’re sharing a Stella Artois with friends, the brand is introducing a Limited-Edition version of its iconic Chalice that has been designed to enhance your drinking experience. The Limited-Edition Sip & Savor Chalice features “sip markers” to provide a playful guide drinkers can follow in order to slow down, enjoy the moment and truly savor a Stella Artois.

The Sip & Savor Chalice can be used in tandem with STELLASPACE or on its own at any social gathering, and is now available for $12.00 at www.stellaartois.com/stellaspace while supplies last.

Adding More Joie to Everyday Occasions
STELLASPACE is an extension of “Joie de Bière,” Stella Artois’ new campaign that highlights the brand’s trademark sophistication – injected with its signature European wit and charm – to inspire people to savor life’s simple pleasures. The campaign launched earlier this year with the debut of a new television spot - “Les Pockets” - that illustrates how much more enjoyable life can be when you take a moment to truly savor a Stella Artois.

To continue spreading joie this season and beyond, Stella Artois is also encouraging fans across the country to make the most of the time they have both offline and online:

●        “Joie de Bière” comes to life online: To inspire people to experience their summer to the fullest, Stella Artois is partnering with charismatic influencers to share their perspective on how they savor everyday moments with great beer and great friends.

●        Savoring at food festivals nationwide: Food and beer pairings are one of life’s most simple pleasures and an easy way to literally savor the moment. That’s why Stella Artois is teaming up with local chefs to curate unique culinary experiences for consumers at food festivals nationwide, including Chicago Gourmet, The Taste, LA, Greenwich Wine + Food Festival, Eat, Drink, SF and more.

●        ‘Inspiring people to live by the “Joie de Bière” mantra: The brand will inspire New York City residents and visitors alike to savor a Stella Artois using dynamic out of home billboards that deliver tailored messages based on the weather and time of day, as well as select large-scale wallscapes and taxi top messaging.

For more inspiration on how to savor, visit www.stellaartois.com/stellaspace and share how you’re savoring the moment with @StellaArtois and #SavorStellaArtois.

"Well, I think all of us as coaches like to be on the radar from a standpoint of recognizing that our kids have worked hard and have earned this opportunity to be at a wonderful Bowl game."

"We obviously don't like to be on the radar when we err, but we know that's part of being on the radar. And it's not wrong. But as far as whether we've been under the radar or over the radar, I guess I don't check the radar that close. But we've been working hard to prepare ourselves and get ready to play a whale of a football team."

"And I've been pleased with our preparation. The beauty of games, as you look back, there's been, what, 28 games so far? You look at those games that have been played, and the same things that make the difference in games during the regular season are the ones that make the difference in this game. And so what we've got to do is we've got to make sure we do the things you need to do to be successful against a very, very good team. And I wish I could help you more on the radar thing, because I'm not that knowledgeable on where we are there."

"It's a bad answer, I know."


2011 sugar bowl postgame

Congratulations to you gluttons who consumed every bit of that 200-plus word answer to a throwaway question. This was The Jim Tressel Experience™ which Buckeye fans grew accustomed to for his decade coaching in Columbus. That meandering explanation to nowhere was his answer to this in New Orleans on Jan 3, 2011:

Jim, how much lower on the radar screen would you have rather have been on this Bowl with all that's going on?

Try to figure out if he was talking about an actual or metaphorical radar there. Maybe both? Either way, he acknowledged, 200-plus words later, that he had given a bad answer. Hey, at least it was really long and not provocative. That's all that matters.

Tressel was the king of speaking for several minutes without actually saying anything. He was as folksy and lacking urgency as he was complimentary and endearing, whether the Buckeyes had just won the game (often) or lost it (not often). He was all of those things, but he was rarely direct with his answers. For Tressel that sort of thing wasn't a phrase or idiom, it was a damn comma.

Travel back to the longest evening in the Ohio State football canon of the current millennium - Glendale, AZ, January 2007, BCS Championship. That nightmare could not end soon enough, and because life is merciless and cruel, the head coach and several players were stuck in the postgame press conference, being forced to extend their televised funeral.

Coach Tressel, the last two games you gave up a total of 80 points. What happened defensively?

I think if you look at the last two games, in both cases we turned it over back in there. And earlier in the year I think after about eight or nine games, we're in the top few in the country in turnover margin, and that helps your defense. And so, you know, very seldom do we get into an evaluation process that leaves any part of our game out, whether it's what the special teams did or didn't do to affect the defense or what the offense did or didn't do to affect the defense. I would say this, you know, Florida is a good offense. And I thought for a good majority of this year that Chris Leak was a little underappreciated. I think he's an outstanding player. Makes things happen. He's in command of what they do. Gets the ball spread around to some very good guys. And so I'm sure part of it is that Florida is very good. Part of it is that the other components of the whole team left the defense in some tough situations, as we did in our last game in the regular season. But I'm sure we can turn on the defensive film and see where we could have done better there. 

Another 200-plus words, this time to answer what was basically hey coach, please describe what getting murdered and then desecrated at your coronation feels like.

It's difficult to parse his reasoning, but he led with losing the turnover battle as a difference maker, which is odd because the 12-1 Buckeyes finished in the negative for that category in 2006, so...no, that wasn't it. He didn't answer the question. He just said anything, and it was allowed.

This happens all of the time in football press conferences. It has become the expectation for both fans and the journalists in attendance - just say something we can print so we can all get out of here. Coachspeak is an inefficient, non-committal language that carries many dialects and we're all conditioned to it.


2007 bcs championship postgame

Ohio State's current head coach speaks one of those dialects, yet it sounds little like Tressel's did - let's stay in the same nightmare evening: Coach Meyer, you just won the BCS championship and throttled Ohio State, which had previously beaten two other No.2 teams. How big of a factor was overall team speed? (emphasis added)

I have to watch the film. I think the combination of mixing up coverages, we used to be a man coverage team solely and I don't think we can do that much, not against a team like this. Not with the speed. You saw how fast Teddy was out in opening kick-off. I saw him walk out to the locker room. I don't believe he came back. The thing that makes Ohio State different than some other teams, they match speed with the physicalness. 

Raise your hand if you would have guessed that Florida's head coach was the only person that night in the stadium or watching on television who didn't see what everyone else saw.

The Gators were viscerally faster all night, except during the opening kickoff when Ginn...hey did he ever come back onto the field after that touchdown? Can't be sure until we check the film. He may have played some more; it's hard to say. Fifty-one days to prepare for the fastest player in the sport and detail freak Urban Meyer could not definitively remember if he even played a down. Okay.

No one batted an eyelash. And no one cared because coaches drop non-committal phrases all the time. Not a single Urban, you really don't know if Ted Ginn played tonight? Coaches say anything into microphones because their answers are rarely intended to carry any real weight. They bark at their players and are direct to a fault on daily basis, up until the point they have to go on the record.

MEYER'S most direct answers to questions almost always arrive under duress, which is to say he's more forthcoming when HE LOSES.

If you're bored, pick any Tressel/Ohio State or Meyer/Florida-or-Ohio State press conference transcript and scrutinize the questions and answers of your choosing. Pick any one for any coach, anywhere. You'll find a whole lot of hedging half-or-non-answers everywhere you look, and few consequences to saying nothing of substance.

They're conditioned. We are too. This language has a name - it's Coachspeak.

Coachspeak was born out of PR-driven caution to not accidentally blurt out anything that's headline worthy, too revealing or becomes a story in and of itself - because it's impossible to un-say something into a microphone. Don't get in trouble by saying too much, because you can't get in trouble for saying too little. Usually.

Half-answer all of the questions you're given and none of the questions you're not, and then move onto the next question. Don't think too hard. Just get to the end. Time is a vacuum.

And that's usually true, because coaches take softballs ranging from "what does your defensive backfield need to reduce the number of big plays" (answer: a series of whatevers) to "who is going to start at right tackle" (answer: a series of whomevers). Everyone writes it down, everyone else half-reads the story, everyone goes away.

Usually.


Coaches speak knowing that their words are going to be printed somewhere. The psychology behind what and how you say something when there's a microphone present is rarely rooted in being courageous or direct.

Urban's most direct answers to questions almost always arrive under duress, which is to say he's more forthcoming when his team loses (not often).

Q. When you were down last week this time, you talked about the maturity that your team showed in rallying against Penn State. Iowa scored 31 straight points after it was tied at 17. Did you misjudge the maturity level or the ability? Or is it a case of Iowa playing really well and you were just having a bad day?

COACH MEYER: I thought Iowa played really well. And we didn't play really well, and turnovers and not being able to get off the field on defense caused that game to turn out the way it did.

Yeah. That's what happened in Iowa City. He didn't have to check the film or anything.

Meyer was at his most vulnerable when he arrived at Ohio State and was pressed to describe what flaming out in Gainesville was like - probably because the questions felt a little more important - and why this time would be different, because flaming out twice would be bad. Those answers mattered more.

Saying nothing so often without consequence is not healthy conditioning, and it was at its most evident with Meyer's answers to Bill Landis, Doug Lesmerises and then Austin Ward when they asked him about Zach Smith's dismissal.

He prefaced his time on the podium by saying he would only take two questions before getting to football things, setting the tone from the outset: I do not want to talk about this thing you probably want me to talk about. He took three, and in each case he made it clear he had no interest in discussing firing the grandson of his favorite recently-deceased non-relative in the world.

Don't get in trouble by saying too much, because you can't get in trouble for saying too little. Usually.

This is an attempt at gerrymandering the press, where coaches select their questions the same way politicians choose their voters. He wasn't brave enough adequately captures the essence of what Meyer said about Smith's termination, especially in light of his subsequent mea culpa. He wasn't brave enough might also end up describing his actions around Smith for several years, once and if that information is made available.

Everyone understands that most of these guys just want to coach ball. Everything else, from players getting in trouble to the endless stream of requests - is a hassle. Those ancillary job requirements get in the way of coaching ball. Leading a team of 6th graders comes with none of those mundane obligations, but there are fewer commas in the salary too. It's a trade-off. 

So they do it half-assed with dripping reluctance as Meyer did in Chicago, nailing every element of Coachspeak in a sequence that captured the entirety of the dialect: Indirect, incomplete, inconclusive and evasive. Usually coaches get a pass for answering questions like that.

Usually.


          Skull Session: Vegas Favors Urban Meyer's Return, Joe Burrow Starts at No. 4 on Depth Chart, and Joey Bosa Says Nick is Further Along      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

We only got a glimpse of the first portion of a practice, but it still counts. Actual, on-the-field football is back!

ICYMI:

Word of the Day: Surfeit.

 VEGAS BANKS ON MEYER RETURN. One Vegas sports book seems to think it's nearly a lock Urban Meyer remains the head coach at Ohio State, but that it's even more likely he serves some sort of suspension, with the over/under set at 4.5 games.

For those of you not well versed in betting odds, that negative number is how much you would have to risk in order to make $100. This means someone would have to wager $1,500 on Meyer keeping his job in order to win just $100 – 1/15 odds.

To give a little perspective, those are roughly the odds that would be given to a 20-point favorite to win a college football game straight up. Which...

This happened.

There's no way of telling what information they're using to set these odds. It's difficult for me to imagine they have any sort of insider info based on how the investigation is organized, but these odds look extremely, extremely confident.

I guess time will tell.

 STARTING AT THE BOTTOM. Joe Burrow was the highest profile graduate transfer in the country, but as soon as he got to Baton Rouge, he was placed at the bottom of the depth chart, and has to earn his way to the top – just like everyone else.

From TheAdvertiser.com:

It is obviously very early, and it may just be window dressing. But new LSU quarterback Joe Burrow started at the bottom as the Tigers opened practice over the weekend.

The junior graduate transfer from Ohio State worked with the fourth team, while junior Justin McMillan, who had the best spring game of the quarterbacks, took the first snaps with the first team. No. 2 was sophomore Myles Brennan, and No. 3 was redshirt freshman Lowell Narcisse.

...

Orgeron had been waiting to see Burrow, who just arrived in June after graduating last spring from Ohio State, where he was a backup quarterback for two seasons.

"I was very pleased watching," Orgeron said. "It was the first time I've seen him. He's really confident. He's a leader out there. When he steps in there, he's cool. He's confident. He's smart. When we give the guys time off, he's in there watching film on his own. He's really a student of the game. He's mature. He's ready to go. He's competing. Just what we wanted."

That sounds fine and extremely coachy, but I've got a strong hunch he's not actually the team's No. 4 quarterback right now, nor will he be the team's No. 4 quarterback come September.

With all due respect to whoever else is on that roster, LSU hasn't produced a competent quarterback since... Zach Mettenberger? Forgive me for assuming the one Ohio State produced for them is the best option.

 JOEY ADMIRES NEW MODEL BOSA. Since Nick Bosa was a sophomore in high school, we've been hearing that he was just like his older brother, but better.

And as Nick enters his third, and almost-certainly final season at Ohio State, Joey is ready to join that bandwagon and admit that his little brother is undeniably further along than he was as a junior.

From SanDiegoUnionTribune.com:

“I don’t think it’s really close,” Bosa told the Union-Tribune earlier this summer, when asked to compare Nick as a true junior with Joey when he was entering his final season at Ohio State, also as a true junior.

“I think he’s pretty far ahead physically. He has a better understanding of pass-rushing than I did in college, that’s for sure.”

Considering that he was the first non-quarterback drafted in 2016, as the third selection, Joey acknowledged that he’s giving Nick a lot of love.

“It’s true, though,” he said.

“I don’t really give anybody credit for anything, even if it’s my brother,” he added. “It’s going to be fun to watch this year.”

If Nick Bosa could have left college after last season, I firmly believe he would have been a first-round pick without technically ever being a starter at Ohio State, simply because he's just a newer model of his older brother, who is dominating the league after just two seasons.

 SKETCHY HIGH SCHOOL SCHEDULES TOP TEAMS. Some of my favorite stories of the past few years have been the seedy college football teams, like College of Faith, which essentially sell wins to other programs.

But I ran across a story about a brand new Ohio "high school" that quite honestly puts those stories to shame.

This "school," which employs former Ohio State wide receiver Jeff Greene as an assistant coach, has put together a football team and scheduled perhaps the most daunted high school slate in the state of Ohio.

That's great, except said school is missing just about everything else, including an actual school.

From ThisWeekNews.com:

At the beginning of August, Christians of Faith Academy, known as COF Academy, did not have a school building, a working website, an identifiable academic structure, an announced home field or a released roster, to name just a few missing essentials, but it was scheduled to play one of Ohio’s most daunting high school football schedules beginning in just a few days.

The schedule includes such traditional Ohio powers as Huber Heights Wayne, Cleveland St. Ignatius and Lakewood St. Edward, and such major out-of-state programs as North Allegheny in Wexford, Pennsylvania, and IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida. The team has 12 games, two more than allowed by the Ohio High School Athletic Association.

The first matchup, a home game against Football North of Ontario, is scheduled for Friday, Aug. 17. (Most Ohio football teams begin their regular seasons Aug. 23 or 24.) As of Aug. 6, no location had been announced for any of the team’s four home games.

Roy Johnson, listed as the school's athletic director, gives his assurance that this actually is a real school with about 50 teachers, and will have 500 all-male students enrolled this fall semester, slated to start on Sept. 4.

But again, pretty much the only evidence of that, as detailed in the article, is a football team with no roster that has yet to register with the OHSAA.

Mark me down as fascinated to see how this plays out.

 STEAL OF THE DRAFT. In a shocking turn of events, it's looking like drafting a two-year starter at Ohio State at the end of the fifth round might turn out to be quite a steal.

The guy is a pass blocking champion in an increasingly pass-first league. I understand he didn't perform well at the combine, but when someone has the proven tape like Jones, you shouldn't overthink things.

 THOSE WMDs. How a high school defensive end overcame suicidal thoughts, substance abuse... Secrets of a lost girl... Five companies that hit the $1 trillion mark before Apple... William Wrigley, Jr., formerly of Wrigley's Gum, is investing in medical marijuana... How face tattoos have gone mainstream...

Darn right there is! You let me find a suitcase filled with money here. I may have to pray a couple of hail Mary's before deciding if I should turn it in or not. Lol! And I still might just pay off a few bills, before turning in $1.00 to the cops, just in case someone wants to claim that. Sike (maybe 😉).

          Blueprint News Celebrates 250 000 Visitors      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The registration of visitor statistics for "blueprint news" started in May 2010 and reported about 250.000 visitors in August 2018. Here are some numbers that remain incomplete, however, because only the leading 10 visitor nations are given, together with information about browsers and systems applied by visitors. Some rare browsers that came to my attention during the years are not included in the overall statistics as they present only a low number of visitors i.e. < 1%. Same goes with the computer systems where the list is too long to integrate it entirely into the following chart, and there are, as well, some visitors who withhold part of the Information. An increasing trend to data anonymization makes it even more difficult to collect visitor data.



Overall visitor statistics for August 8, 2018.


However, more important than mere numbers should be the following choice of highlights of visitor activity during all those years and which might give an idea of the global acceptance my rather tiny blog achieved.


Visitor Highlights



Chinese visitors coming from River Yangtse and from Hangzhou, both places being
near to Shanghai. A closer look on the satellite images provides interesting features.



The former Portuguese colony of Macao which is now a part of PR China. Two
long bridges, connecting the main parts of Macao, might attract your attention.



Living the Chinese Dream



Economic prosperity and military strength are integral parts of China's global dream. While
facing maritime disputes with other nations, China is enforcing a modernization of its navy.



Japan and North Korea



One visitor came from the diplomatic quarters of Tokyo (above) and which is near to
the Imperial Palace. Another visitor called from Ground Zero in Hiroshima where the
first atomic bomb had been dopped in 1945.



Earlier this year Japanese authorities launched a missile alert via Japan National TV
when a North Korean test missile was heading toward Japanese territory. As tensions
with North Korea were high at the time, I was just watching Japanese news on satellite
TV. I immediately took a photo from my TV screen and posted it. My blogspot was then
available on the internet while the North Korean missile was still in the air over Japan !



One of the rare visitors from North Korea is indicating he came from the Ryugyong
neighbourhood in Pyongyang and which is not far away from the central compound
of North Korea's ruling Workers Party. The internet access point, however, remains
difficult to localize in this case.



In August 2017 two US military bases on Guam were threatened by North Korea which said
it would create an "enveloping fire" around the US territory using four Hwasong-12 missiles
that should detonate 30-40 km off the island. The US side made clear this would mean war.



Nuclear Research

The CERN Institute in Geneva, Switzerland, is operating the greatest particle accelerator
ever built. It was there that a predicted elementary entity, the Higgs boson, was detected
for the first time.



The center for nuclear research in Dubna is situated in the neighbourhood of
Moscow, Russia. In Soviet times it was the most important facility of its kind.



Washington and Israel

No, it's not at all a call from the President but rather from a
public hotspot facing the White House in Washington DC :



In the hustle of the 2016 pre-election times I simply forgot to publish the below picture.
Sorry for that ! The picture can be named "Grabber King at the Chicago Trump Tower".



The US Department of State noticed my translation of a political poem originally written by
Guenter Grass, one German laureate of the Nobel Price for Literature. It's all about Israeli
militarism directed against Arab neighbours (i.e. their Semitic brethren...) and against Iran.



In the week after the author's death, my translation
of his poem was addressed by different US visitors :



US - Iranian Enmity



The National Defense University NDU in Washington DC, a US government institution,
visited a blogspot of mine and which is dealing with a scenario of mutual threats that
has steadily developed between Iran and the USA.

All

All of Central Asia and the Middle East
is under control of The Empire.
Well, not entirely ..........


An Iranian visitor enjoyed, as well, my visualization of the conflict.



One visitor coming from the faculty of law at Ain Shams University in Cairo, Egypt, made
a Google search by simply entering the timeless adage of justice to be found above the
entrance of a Cairo law court, and found ..... my blogspot about decisive battles in Syria.
What an amazing coincidence !



After the ousting of Libyan dictator Muammar al-Ghadafi, a visitor called from some
internet access point nearby to Martyrs Square in Tripoli, the former capital of Libya.
It is on Martyrs Square that a shrine was established for the heroes of the revolution.



A "postcard" from the holy places of Makkah in Saudi-Arabia :



In August 2014 Islamic fighters were threatening Kurdish residents in the
Kirkuk region of Northern Iraq. People fled into the nearby mountaineous
area while Islamists headed further to Mosul. After the fall of Mosul, the
Islamist leader al-Baghdadi declared his caliphate in the great mosque
of Mosul.



Visitors coming from Northern Pakistan took immediate interest in the Iraqi developments.
They came from Islamabad, its southern environment, from Quetta and Peshawar (below).



Mongolia - Chingis Khan and the "Art of War"



A smiling Mogolian leader once presented his Mongolian horsemen to US president Bush.
When a Mongol horde invaded and destroyed the Caliphate of Baghdad in 1258, they left
a gigantic regional chaos similar to what did the US Cavalry under US president Bush. The
difference, however, is: The Mongol horde robbed what they could carry on horseback and
returned home, while the US sat and waited as oil wells cannot be so easily carried away.



Other "cold warriors" can be found on Elmendorf Air Base in Alaska, USA, .....



..... while some people are peacefully fighting the cold in an Inuit community on Greenland :



The "University of the South Pacific" on the lonesome island of Fiji, however, is a real "hotspot".
No wonder they provide a swimming pool needed to cool off the heated brains of young folks.



In comparison, the "Harvard Business School" in Cambridge,
Massachusetts, might make a point with a better reputation.




          The Linda And Mitch Hart Institute For Women Conductors Class Of 2018 Announced      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The Dallas Opera is proud to announce the names of the twelve distinguished professionals (six conductors, two administrators, and four observers) selected to participate in the fourth annual residency of the Linda and Mitch Hart Institute for Women Conductors at The Dallas Opera taking place Oct. 28 - Nov. 10, 2018 in Dallas, Texas:

  • Sonia Ben-Santamaria (France)
  • Priscila Bomfim (Brazil)
  • Sarah Penicka-Smith (Australia)
  • Audrey Saint-Gil (France/USA)
  • Maria Sensi Sellner (USA)
  • Emily Senturia (USA)

Working to address a long-standing issue at the podium, The Dallas Opera in 2015 launched a unique, new residential program-one of only three in the world-designed to provide training and career support for distinctively talented women conductors on the cusp of major international careers. Female conductors, as well as accomplished women singers, opera coaches, accompanists, and instrumentalists with established careers seeking to develop new skills at the podium, were encouraged to apply.

"At this point in my career," observes conductor Priscila Bomfim, "I could not receive better news than the opportunity to participate in the Hart Institute for Women Conductors at The Dallas Opera, supporting the women who have accepted the challenges of conducting in the opera world."

"For me, the Hart Institute embodies the American Dream," writes Audrey Saint-Gil. "Work hard, dream big, and grab your opportunity tight with both hands when it comes."

The initiative received vital foundational support from the Richard and Enika Schulze Foundation. Naming support came through the generosity of Linda and Mitch Hart.

Additional support for the 2018 Hart Institute comes from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Baker Botts LLP, Cindy and Charlie Feld, Jenifer and Peter Flynn, Susan and Mark Geyer, Holly and Tom Mayer, Betty and Steve Suellentrop, and Martha and Max Wells.

Made possible by an OPERA America Innovation Grant, supported by the Ann and Gordon Getty Foundation.

Ian Derrer, The Dallas Opera's Kern Wildenthal General Director and CEO notes: "This proven program - by recognizing the contributions of exceptionally talented women in classical music - helps focus vision for conductors, music directors and administrators by showcasing their rich array of skills. Because recognition and vision lead directly to opportunity.

"I was deeply committed to providing leadership roles for women during my tenure as general director of Kentucky Opera," Derrer adds, "and that continues in Dallas. The extraordinary generosity of our underwriters and the enthusiasm of The Dallas Opera Board show that we are on the right track to improve gender parity on the podium."

A total of 51 women conductors and professional musicians heeded the call in 2018, despite even more stringent admissions requirements this year. Applicants from 19 countries included music directors, principal and assistant conductors, concertmasters and music staff from top-ranked symphonies, opera companies, and conservatories.

"Getting into the Hart Institute will be a game-changer for me," observed conductor Sarah Penicka-Smith. "I value the existence of a program which addresses the whole conductor, not just her technique, and I hope this will allow us to develop as many unique models of what it means to be a conductor as there are women to fill those positions."

Maria Sensi Sellner agrees: "I'm thrilled to have the opportunity to work with the team of exceptional mentors and advisors assembled by The Dallas Opera, and to broaden my community of female colleagues, as we work towards equity on the podium."

Adds conductor Emily Senturia, "I look forward to learning from industry leaders and the other talented women who have been chosen to participate in this groundbreaking program."

As is the case each year, four talented U.S. observers were chosen to "audit" the 2018 Institute: Laurann Gilley, Laura Giuli, Amy Owens, and Sara Parkinson.

~~~~

The 2018 Linda and Mitch Hart Institute will consist of hands-on master classes with the Mrs. Eugene McDermott Music Director, Emmanuel Villaume; TDO's Martha R. and Preston A. Peak Principal Guest Conductor Nicole Paiement and Carlo Montanaro, a renowned Italian conductor who made his official TDO debut last season in La Traviata.

Sessions include career advancement seminars with experienced professionals; topical industry discussions; intensive one-on-ones and networking opportunities; as well as the chance to conduct The Dallas Opera Orchestra in a public concert in the Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House at the AT&T Performing Arts Center on the evening of November 10, 2018 (additional details to be announced).

As part of TDO's five-year commitment to each institute "class" of conductors, alumnae will be invited to summer reunions for additional masterclasses with piano and singers, and a series of seminars about the business of music.

Conductor Sonia Ben-Santamaria writes: "A huge thank you to The Dallas Opera's Hart Institute for being the precursor in promoting and nurturing female talent worldwide."

"Although still in the early stages," says Dallas Opera Director of Artistic Administration David Lomeli, "The Institute appears to be having a pronounced positive impact on the field, with Hart Institute alumnae being singled out for important appointments, projects, and commissions in both the opera and symphonic world."

Marc A. Scorca, President and CEO of OPERA America, earlier remarked: "The Dallas Opera continues to expand its influence and stature among American opera companies, as shown by this exciting new initiative.? The company is to be applauded for taking a significant step to remedy the existing gender imbalance on the podium.? This effort complements OPERA America's support of the work of female opera composers and promises to enrich the art form by encouraging more gifted artists to express themselves through opera."

~~~~

While the Hart Institute began with a focus on supporting talented conductors, the challenges faced by?women opera administrators?are equally daunting.? To address this imbalance, The Dallas Opera last year added a new component to the Hart Institute: Through 2022, TDO will invite between two and four American opera administrators to participate each season.? These women will be selected on the basis of their potential to become leaders of one of America's top opera companies at a later point in their careers.

The 2018 Hart Institute Administrators are:

  • Nicole Eubanks (Lyric Opera of Kansas City)
  • Brooke Tolley (Opera Roanoke)

The selected opera administrators will have access to all group sessions and special sessions during the annual residency in Dallas.? This curriculum includes the role of the board, leadership development, personal branding, media and PR training, effective artist management, and navigating recruiting processes for senior level positions.? To continue to develop their musical skills, which is essential for any opera executive, the administrators will observe rehearsals with The Dallas Opera Orchestra and conducting master classes.? Special sessions on Development, Finance, and Marketing will be offered as well.

One of the goals of the program is to construct a wide network of influential female leaders in the administrative offices of performing arts organizations, both large and small, as well as onstage and in the orchestra pit.

An Illinois state lawmaker has stepped down after an ex-girlfriend accused him of using her name to create a fake social media account and then posting nude photos of her, reportedly as a ploy to lure men into "graphic conversations." Rep. Nick Sauer, a first-term Republican, wrote a letter Wednesday to the Clerk of the House of Representatives in Illinois tendering his resignation. "As a result of the allegations by Kate Kelly, a former girlfriend, I have decided to resign," Sauer wrote. "My ability to fulfill my obligations as a State Representative and public servant will be affected by the distraction of addressing these allegations," he wrote. "After speaking with my family, I feel it best to step away from my public responsibilities." According to the Chicago Tribune , "Republican Gov.

WFLD CHICAGO'S 'JERRY G & COMPANY' PILOT INCLUDES CLIP FROM DE PALMA'S 'GREETINGS'
http://www.angelfire.com/de/palma/gerritgreetingsjerryg.jpg

Last week, Rick Thomas posted to YouTube a pilot episode of WFLD-TV's Jerry G & Company. The episode, taped in Chicago on July 26, 1969, featured Gerrit Graham as a guest, with a clip (not featuring Graham) from Brian De Palma's Greetings. The segment begins at about the 33-minute mark, with host Jerry G saying, " I may be wrong, but this may be the first war in the history of this country, or any other, that is opposed by a significant vocal segment of the population, perhaps a war opposed by a majority-- and I say, perhaps..." Jerry G. introduces Graham by first presenting a clip of Robert De Niro from the end of Greetings, as a shorthand way to say that Graham is involved in this new film that shows America's youth opposing the war in Vietnam. Briefly discussing the film, Graham says, "Well, the director and the producer had a screenplay, scenario, and they knew more or less what they wanted out of the film. But we, the actors, wrote the script, if you like-- we improvised it. We made up the dialogue."

Jerry G. then introduces Loren Smith, a Northwestern University Law School Graduate (who would go on in later years to become a federal judge). Jerry G. reads a quote from Smith that states his position on the Vietnam war: "A hawk: a not-totally extinct bird." Graham tells Jerry G. that he is not by nature a political person. Even so, later on in the segment, Graham cannot help but passionately speak up when Smith states that "part of the solution has to be to tell the communist world that we will use force to gain political objectives"...

Gerrit Graham: Now you see, that's just where I disagree, and I just don't buy it. I don't suppose there's any political rhyme or reason to it-- as a matter of fact, I'm sure there isn't. But it just seems to me that the United States has taken upon itself an obligation which most of the world's peoples would just as soon they hadn't taken upon themselves. And I just... there doesn't seem, to me, to be any need for the United States to impose its political ethos on a country which up to that point was not a capitalist bastion.

Loren: What?

Gerrit: Which is what they're trying to make it into.

Loren: I don't think we're trying to do that...

On July 25, Woodstock resident Ronald Eck filed two complaints with the elections board. One of those complaints targets Tirio for “failure to disclose an in-kind contribution” and “failure to file an A-1 for the in-kind contribution,” complaint documents show.

The complaint claims Tirio's campaign committee did not disclose a $1,200 contribution from the McHenry County Republican Party to pay the fees of attorney Phil Prossnitz. A $1,200 payment to Prossnitz was reported on the committee's latest D-2 filing, according to campaign finance records logged on the Illinois State Board of Elections website.

The beneficiary of the transaction, the filing reads, is the McHenry County Republican Central Committee.

Eck disputed that, saying the payment "was NOT for the benefit of the Republican Central Committee of McHenry County ... the payment was for the benefit of Joe Tirio," the complaint said.

Tirio's campaign committee should have reported those dollars, Eck said, as an "in-kind contribution." 

Tirio declined to comment.

In a separate complaint filed against the McHenry County Republican Central Committee, Eck alleges that the party failed to disclose "an expenditure in excess of $150" on behalf of a candidate on its quarterly financing report. 

Eck pointed to the $1,200 payment to Prossnitz to represent Tirio.

"The funds expended by the committee were not intended as a benefit to the committee and were in fact expended to the benefit of candidate Joe Tirio," the complaint reads.

Republican Party Chairwoman Diane Evertsen could not be reached for comment.

The State Board of Elections has summoned both Tirio and the county GOP to a hearing Aug. 27 to discuss the complaint at the James R. Thompson Center in Chicago.

Anyone who willfully files false or incomplete information about campaign financing, contributions and expenditures could face a fine of up to $5,000.

          Agricultor americano fala sobre a safra e o que espera do mercado      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
 

  
Agosto é o mês crucial para a safra de grãos dos Estados Unidos e neste ano agricultores ainda não conseguem ter muita definição sobre a produtividade. É o caso de David Adcock, dono de 485 hectares de soja e milho em Illinois.

Numa entrevista em sua propriedade, ele conta como está o desenvolvimento das lavouras e o que espera do mercado. A guerra comercial entre Estados Unidos e China está no radar e ele espera que a ajuda prometida pelo governo de Donald Trump compense a recente desvalorização dos grãos na Bolsa de Chicago.

Adcock vendeu até o momento cerca de 30% da safra. Ele não tem necessidade de vender mais no momento para fazer caixa, mas acredita que deveria ter comprometido mais a produção antecipadamente. Os contratos foram fechados antes da guerra comercial se consolidar.

Um indicador do sentimento do produtor agrícola dos Estados Unidos teve queda recorde em julho. O barômetro da economia agrícola da Purdue University e do CME caiu 26 pontos, para 117 pontos, no mês passado, o maior recuo desde que as medições começaram em 2015.

Preocupações com tarifas recentes introduzidas por China e México e preços mais baixos em junho e julho provocaram a piora no sentimento do setor. Mais de dois terços dos 400 produtores ouvidos esperam que sua receita diminua em consequência de conflitos comerciais. O indicador que mede as perspectivas para o futuro também teve queda.

A qualidade das lavouras de grãos nos Estados Unidos piorou na semana passada, de acordo com dados divulgados nesta segunda-feira, 6, pelo Departamento de Agricultura do país (USDA).

Em seu relatório semanal de acompanhamento de safra, o USDA disse que 71% do cultivo de milho 2018/19 apresentava condição boa ou excelente até o último domingo (5), queda de um ponto porcentual ante a semana anterior. O USDA informou também que 96% da safra do cereal estava formando espigas, ante 92% na média dos cinco anos anteriores. Outros 57% estavam em formação de grãos, comparados a 37% na média de cinco anos, e 12% já formavam dentes ante 6% na média de cinco anos.

Quanto à soja, 67% das lavouras norte-americanas estavam em condição boa ou excelente, recuo de três pontos porcentuais ante a semana anterior. O órgão estatal informou que 92% da safra tinha florescido, ante 86% na média de cinco anos. Ainda segundo o USDA, 75% da safra estava formando vagens, em comparação a 58% na média de cinco anos.

O USDA disse que 74% das lavouras de trigo de primavera estavam em condição boa ou excelente, queda de quatro pontos porcentuais ante a semana anterior. A colheita atingiu 13%, abaixo da média de 14% registrada nos últimos cinco anos. A colheita da safra de trigo de inverno estava em 90% da área total, de acordo com o governo do país, ante 92% na média de cinco anos.

Com relação ao algodão, 40% das plantações apresentavam condição boa ou excelente até a semana passada, redução de três pontos porcentuais ante a semana anterior. Até domingo, 92% da safra tinha florescido, em comparação a 94% na média de cinco anos. Outros 60% das lavouras tinha formado maçãs, contra 62% na média de cinco anos e, ainda de acordo com o USDA, 9% da safra abriu maçãs, ante 6% da média de cinco anos.

A comercialização da soja da safra 17/18 de Mato Grosso atinge 90% da produção estimada, 3,8 pontos porcentuais acima de julho, segundo o Instituto Mato-grossense de Economia Agropecuária (Imea).

"Após o cenário de paralisação por parte dos caminhoneiros, nos últimos meses, o mercado disponível de soja começa a ganhar novamente fluidez. Porém, de maneira cautelosa, com algumas negociações pontuais", disse o Imea em relatório divulgado nesta segunda-feira, 6.

Conforme o instituto, o produtor nesse período busca uma melhor margem de lucro, visto que a maior parte da oleaginosa já foi vendida. Já a comercialização antecipada da safra 2018/19 está travada. As vendas, equivalentes a 21,5% da produção esperada, avançaram 0,48 ponto porcentual de um mês para outro. "O principal fator que continua retendo o mercado de soja futura é a indecisão quanto aos custos do frete", explicou o Imea.

          BREAKING: The most significant fact of the day!      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 8, 2018

The Washington Post breaks the news:
The headline appeared atop page one of today's hard-copy Washington Post.

It appeared in the top right hand corner of the page. It announced the top news of the day:
Gates admits to cheating on wife, bilking Manafort
Rick Gates admitted to cheating on his wife! At the Washington Post, it was the most important fact of the day, apparently on a worldwide basis.

The Post's news report began like this. It took four reporters to do this:
WEINER, ZAPOTOSKY, HELDERMAN AND BARRETT (8/8/18): The courtroom showdown between Paul Manafort and his former right-hand man, Rick Gates, grew painfully personal Tuesday as a defense lawyer forced Gates, the prosecution’s star witness, to admit he had a transatlantic extramarital affair and embezzled money to live beyond his means.

During his second day on the witness stand, Gates detailed the lies, phony documents and fake profits he claims to have engineered at Manafort’s direction. Manafort, seated at the defense table, at times stared intently at his former protege and business partner, who has assiduously avoided Manafort’s gaze despite their proximity inside the federal courthouse in Alexandria, Va.
Just so you'll know, these are the topics which actually matter:
Paragraph 1: Did he have a sexy-time affair?
Paragraph 2: What sort of body language obtained inside the courtroom?
These are the topics which actually matter to members of our war-ridden species. Indeed, these were Nicolle Wallace's only three questions about the trial, as delivered to Josh Gerstein on Monday night, her final night of guest-hosting for Rachel Maddow:
WALLACE (6/6/18): Josh, take us through these dramatic points that are coming out in press accounts about Rick Gates, about the dynamic between Gates and Manafort, and about the larger picture that's being filled in through press accounts about Gates is an eyewitness to much more than Manafort`s crimes.

WALLACE: Take us through some of the emotions that went through this room. Was Gates—and did the jury pick up on any of that—was Gates acting fearful of what he was testifying to? Did Manafort seem angry? Were there any family members with any outbursts or emotions that they displayed in the courtroom?

WALLACE: Let me ask you how they deal with explaining to a jury that someone is a cooperating witness, that they`ve already pleaded guilty to committing some crimes. Does that change, or could you detect any change in any of the body language from the jury? Did they seem to, to listen less intently or did they—did they lean in as this was someone who had traded something?
Drama, emotions and body language—these are the issues which matter. Were there any outbursts from any family members?

Atop page one in this morning's Post, the fact that Gates had an affair was today's most important fact from all around the world. Meanwhile:

On page A3 of today's New York Times, we were handed yesterday's "Quote of the Day" (hard-copy editions only). Here it is—and no, we aren't making this up:
Quote of the Day
"Pound for pound, Stan Mikita was one of the greatest players of all time."

BOBBY HULL, the Hall of Fame hockey star, describing his teammate who was just 5-foot-9 and 150 pounds when he joined the Chicago Black Hawks.
On page A3 of the New York Times, that was yesterday's most important statement, also apparently on a worldwide basis.

According to Professor Harari, our smaller-brained Homo sapiens species eliminated the larger-brained Neanderthals thanks to our ability to "gossip" and to adopt group "fictions." According to Kevin Drum, people of a certain age were all exposed to much more lead than the children of modern-day Flint.

We offer those possible explanations for the strange state of our discourse. But when a nation's journalistic and academic elites behave in the way this nation's have done, can anyone really be surprised when we end up, after thirty-one years of girl friend chasing, with a President Donald J. Trump?

(We date that to the mainstream press corps' chase after Gary Hart, who had engaged in sexual acts without prior press corps permission.)

Our major elites have been deeply disordered for decades. We take this to be an obvious fact.

We've reported, you can explain. In our view, there's no obvious way to go back.

It reversed and remanded a lower court ruling that the distraction exception did not apply to the "open and obvious" rule (Georgia Christakes v. SP Plus Corp., No. 1-17-2675, Ill. App., 1st Dist., 6th Div., 2018 Ill. App Unpub. LEXIS 1237).

          Comment on When People Say, “Not All Churches!” by Shary      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
So true churches don't want to expose abuse. But I do know of two church who have stood up to mission boards about covering up for abusers on the mission field. A Pastor from a church that stood up to the leaders of a mission that just moved child abusers around instead of exposing them as child abusers. He will be speaking at a MK Safety Net Gathering in Chicago to adults who were abused as children by missionaries. Most of these MKs never have heard of a church supporting them when they reported the abuse. So technically you can say not all churches but do you have actions that prove it. Your actions are your proof.

          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. &n
