          A Gubernatorial Candidate’s Disturbing Ties To Linda Sarsour      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

On August 7, Michigan’s citizens will be going to their polling booths to vote in gubernatorial primaries. Attorney General Bill Schuette and Lt. Gov. Brian Calley are vying for the GOP ticket. Democratic candidates have whittled to three; former state Senate leader Gretchen Whitmer, business executive Shri Thanedar and former state health official Abdul El-Sayed.

When he first threw his hat in for contention, El-Sayed, who is Muslim and whose father is Egyptian, was a dark horse who trailed both the front runner Whitmer as well as Thanedar. However, as reported by the left-wing Intercept, at least one recent poll has him now surpassing Thanedar and within striking distance of Whitmer (other polls still have him lagging).

This should be a source of concern for centrist Democrats, those who cherish free-enterprise as well as those who value the continuation of the strong alliance between Israel and U.S. When it comes to El-Sayed, two age-old adages come to mind; “Don’t judge a book by its cover,” and “A man can be judged by the company he keeps.”

On paper, El-Sayed has an impressive resume – he’s a doctor, Rhodes Scholar, and former director of the Detroit Health Department – and appears qualified for the job. But there’s more to being a state’s top executive than impressive credentials. Looking beyond the cover, El-Sayed is a member of the regressive hard Left and has Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez squarely in his corner.  In fact, the Democratic Socialist duo has been actively campaigning on his behalf.

But it gets worse, much worse. El-Sayed also maintains close ties to the foul-mouthed racist Linda Sarsour and that says a lot about what kind of person El-Sayed is. El-Sayed is a sly fellow and has been careful to steer clear of the Arab-Israeli dispute so as not to overtly alienate an important constituency. In at least one instance, El-Sayed punted when asked an unsolicited question on the Mideast; “I’m running for governor of Michigan,” he answered.

But his association with Sarsour should raise alarm bells. Sarsour is an anti-Semite to her core and is on record making a number of disparaging comments about the “Jewish media,” Zionism and Israel. She infamously tweeted that there is “nothing creepier than Zionism,” and absurdly asserted that Zionism and feminism are incompatible. Yet Sarsour, in a number of twitter posts, ironically championed Saudi-style Sharia law, which subjugates women and imposes on them institutional second class citizenship. 

Sarsour, who touts herself to be a leading women’s rights activist, is in actuality, anything but. She infamously lashed out at two leading female critics and noted on social media that she “wish[ed]…to take their vaginas away.” One of the victims of Sarsour’s invective was herself a victim of female genital mutilation. Sarsour later scrubbed the vulgar tweet as well as others in an attempt to rehabilitate her image but her obscenities continued unabated.

Last year, Sarsour voiced support for Assata Shakur, a murderer who killed a New Jersey state trooper in a 1973 shootout. That asinine support prompted pushback and criticism from CNN’s Jake Tapper. The thinned-skinned Sarsour then bizarrely accused Tapper of being a member of the “alt-right.”

Sarsour’s unhinged demeanor showed no signs of let-up. On November 29, 2017 Sarsour blamed the “Jewish media” for fostering negative views about her. But perhaps most disconcerting is her unabashed support for the unrepentant Judeophobe, Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan.

There was a time when any association with Farrakhan, even among Democrats, would be the death knell of any political career beyond the confines of garbage collector. In 2005 for example, a smiling Barack Obama was photographed with Farrakhan but the photo was deep-sixed and never saw the light of day until two years after the completion of his two terms. But the Democratic Party of today, with the Jeremy Corbyn-like influence of the Democratic Socialists, has been transformed into a vastly different party, one in which antisemitism has been mainstreamed. 

Aspiring Democratic politicians like El-Sayed no longer shy away from toxic bigots like Sarsour. Sadly, they embrace them. On August 7, Michigan’s Democratic primary voters will have a chance to reject this malign influence and partly reverse the Democratic Party’s noxious trajectory.

Germany: Muslim migrant plotted to explode ricin bomb packed with shrapnel, targeting “unbelievers”

Danke, Merkel!
“Tunisian Migrant Planned Biological Weapon Attack Against ‘Unbelievers’ in Germany,” by Victoria Friedman, Breitbart, August 4, 2018:
Tunisian migrant Sief Allah H., 29, planned a deadline ricin terror attack against “unbelievers”, according to German prosecutors.
“He wanted to explode a ricin bomb packed with shrapnel in a busy indoor place” targeting “unbelievers”, the Federal Prosecutor’s Office said, in what is believed to be Germany’s first biological weapons terror plot.
Authorities revealed further details about the Islamist plot on Friday, after the Tunisian migrant was arrested following a raid on his apartment in the Chorweiler district of the west German city of Cologne on June 12th.
The suspect was charged with possession of weapons of war, “planning a serious act of violence against the state”, and of membership with a terrorist organisation, according to Deutsche Welle
Police conducted the raid in early June and found “toxic substances” which turned out to be the highly dangerous ricin which is used in the manufacture of biological weapons.
Sief’s wife — a Muslim convert 13 years his senior identified as Yasmin H. — was also arrested in late July.
It is alleged that 42-year-old Yasmin H., a German national, had arranged a trip for her husband to Poland to buy explosive materials. Officials claim she then had allowed him to use her online accounts to order ingredients and components for the bomb, including thousands of “castor seeds [used to make ricin] and an electric coffee grinder”, in May….

          Ford Celebrates 10 Millionth Mustang, Banks on Its Appeal      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The Ford Mustang — an iconic American symbol of cool — reached a major milestone Wednesday as the 10 millionth vehicle rolled off an assembly line at a Detroit-area plant. Ford marked the occasion for the car, celebrated in American song and film and recognized the world over as a quintessentially American cultural export, with a big party and parade at the Michigan headquarters — complete with a flyover from World War II-era P-51 Mustang fighter jets that are the car's namesake. It is a key moment for Ford, which is banking on the Mustang's wide appeal to help it grow global market share. US sales of the model are declining, but they are accelerating overseas. "The Mustang is the best-selling sports coupe in Germany, as well as in the United States," Ford CEO Jim Hackett boasted in remarks to revelers assembled at Ford headquarters. As it celebrates the milestone, Ford is appealing to the sense of nostalgia for the vehicle that exemplified the love of the open road and shares its a name with the horse that still roams free in the American West. The 10 millionth Mustang was painted the same "Wimbledon White" as the first one to roll off the assembly line in 1964. "I can think of no other American car that captures the love affair with the automobile that Americans have had," automotive historian John Heitmann of the University of Dayton told AFP. 'Freedom vehicle' The Mustang germinated an entire subgenre of cars. From a technical standpoint, the original 1965 model was not meant as a muscle car intended to attract those who gravitate to fast wheels. It was in fact one of the original so-called "pony cars" — a smaller, affordable, practical sibling of flashy sports cars intended to appeal to young professionals, including women. But the Mustang became an icon almost from the start, in no small part thanks to marketing that would rival a modern-day iPhone launch. It debuted in the spring, at the 1964 New York World's Fair, far before other companies that announced their latest offerings in the fall. It was hyped up in advance and automotive industry journalists were on hand. Automotive historian Bob Merlis, at the time a teenager, witnessed the World's Fair launch. "It was almost like pandemonium. People were so excited about this car," Merlis said. "It was sort of a counterpoint to the very square, staid station wagon ethos that Americans grew up with in suburbia," he recalled. "It represented some kind of a freedom vehicle. It embodied that." The car captured the public imagination, reflected in its popularity on the big screen. The Mustang made its first appearance in 1964 in a chase scene with Sean Connery's James Bond in "Goldfinger," and American film star Steve McQueen drove a Mustang in the 1968 thriller "Bullitt" — cementing the car's cool factor. It even appealed overseas, appearing in the 1966 Oscar-winning French film "A Man and a Woman" by Claude Lelouch. And Wilson Pickett immortalized the car in "Mustang Sally," a rhythm and blues classic from 1966. Global draw Ford has been playing up that nostalgic past. At this year's Detroit auto show, the company unveiled a new limited-edition Bullitt Mustang, along with McQueen's original. For its celebration, Ford highlighted the loyalty of Mustang owners who are known to form clubs and restore older models. Owners were called upon to bring one Mustang for every model year to Ford headquarters, and they responded enthusiastically. The company held a 20-mile (32 km) parade Wednesday morning from its headquarters in one Detroit suburb to its Mustang assembly plant in another. "It's been part of my life for a long time," Mike Magri, owner of five different Mustangs since 1988, told AFP. But Mustangs soon will be one of only two passenger cars from Ford -- along with a crossover Focus — sold in North America. All other Ford offerings will be trucks and SUVs. Ford sold only about 81,000 of the sporty model in North America last year, a mere 0.5 percent of the market, according to Autodata. But Mustang sales are growing overseas. Since Ford began exporting Mustangs in 2015, it has become the world's best-selling sports coupe, according to the company's figures — including in China, which by 2025 is projected to have twice the share of the global car market compared to the US. Ford's head of global markets, Jim Farley, said the vehicle's largest dealer in the world is in Stockholm, Sweden. "Now, you see Mustangs on the streets in London and you see Mustangs in Beijing," Farley told employees at the plant.

Quella rete che andrebbe sradicata


http://www.trafioriepiante.it/images/infogardening/ambulatorio/radici.jpg
Per combattere davvero il fenomeno degli abusi sessuali occorre sradicare le reti gay esistenti all’interno della Chiesa.
Questa la tesi sostenuta dalla professoressa Janet E. Smith, teologa morale Al Sacred Hearth Major Seminary di Detroit, in seguito all’ennesimo scandalo che sta travolgendo la Chiesa cattolica negli Stati Uniti dopo che il cardinale Theodore McCarrick si è dimesso a causa della sua condotta sessuale e degli abusi su seminaristi.



Secondo Janet Smith (https://www.facebook.com/janet.e.smith.73/posts/10214929625212700) a questo punto occorre dire chiaramente che lo scandalo non sta solo nelle coperture da parte dei vescovi, né si può pensare che tutto possa essere risolto con provvedimenti disciplinari verso i responsabili e il perfezionamento di meccanismi per la segnalazione dei pastori viziosi. In profondità, sostiene la teologa americana, il problema sta nella presenza di reti omosessuali all’interno della Chiesa, probabilmente nelle diocesi di tutto il mondo e certamente nella curia romana.
L’omosessualità attiva, spiega Janet Smith, https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/we-must-eradicate-churchs-gay-networks-to-fight-sex-abuse-moral-theologian) non è l’unica condotta immorale che vede protagonisti esponenti del clero. C’è anche l’uso di sostanze, c’è l’amore per il lusso, c’è l’avidità, c’è il clericalismo, ma “sradicare le reti omosessuali sarebbe di grande importanza per liberare la Chiesa dai sacerdoti immorali”.
La vicenda MacCarrick ha dimostrato che la lobby gay opera senza tregua da lungo tempo e che le reti omosessuali sono in grado di condizionare le scelte della gerarchia, attraverso protezioni reciproche e avanzamenti di carriera.
“Stiamo ricevendo segnalazioni di seminaristi e giovani sacerdoti che sono stati predati da preti omosessuali attivi e che non hanno ricevuto alcun aiuto dai loro vescovi e sono stati a volte messi a tacere”, spiega Janet Smith, sottolineando le conseguenze che tali comportamenti hanno anche per le vocazioni: “Quanti bravi giovani non sono sopravvissuti al seminario o al sacerdozio per queste ragioni? Quanti giovani non prenderanno nemmeno in considerazione il sacerdozio per paura di entrare in un simile ambiente?”.
Occorre quindi affermare, dice la teologa, che è scorretto parlare di pedofilia quando invece si tratta nella maggioranza dei casi di abusi omosessuali nei confronti di adolescenti.
Le statistiche al riguardo parlano chiaro e lo studio più approfondito in materia, quello del John Jay College of Criminal Justice sulle denunce di abusi sessuali commissionato dalla Conferenza episcopale degli Stati Uniti nel 2004 (The Nature and Scope of the Problem of Sexual Abuse of Minors by Catholic Priests and Deacons in the United States), ha rilevato che su un totale di oltre cinquemila casi l’81 per cento riguardava rapporti di preti con giovani vittime di sesso maschile e il 90 per cento di tali giovani vittime era composto da adolescenti.
Il rapporto afferma inoltre che “una percentuale molto piccola di sacerdoti accusati di abusi erano motivati da patologie come la pedofilia”.
Già all’epoca il National Review Board della Conferenza episcopale Usa aveva affermato che, sebbene la crisi degli abusi sessuali non abbia una sola causa, non è possibile comprendere la crisi senza prendere in considerazione la presenza di sacerdoti con orientati omosessuali.
Nel 2006 il dottor Paul McHugh, psichiatra al Johns Hopkins Hospital e membro del National Review Board, in un editoriale del National Catholic Register scrisse che lo studio del John Jay aveva messo in luce nella Chiesa cattolica una crisi dovuta alla “predazione omosessuale sui giovani cattolici americani”.
Tuttavia, nonostante i dati in suo possesso, la Chiesa degli Stati Uniti non ha affrontato la questione del clero omosessuale né ha smantellato le reti di protezione. La stessa lettera della Conferenza episcopale Usa sulla protezione dei bambini e dei giovani, prodotta nel 2002 in seguito all’esplodere dello scandalo degli abusi, si è concentrata sulla pedofilia, senza affrontare il problema della condotta omosessuale dei preti che hanno rapporti con adolescenti e adulti.
Come riferisce LifeSiteNews, già dieci anni fa il giornalista Phil Lawler nel suo libro The Faithful Departeddimostrava che la componente omosessuale ha un ruolo decisivo nella questione degli abusi, ma quelle conclusioni non sono mai state veramente prese in considerazione dai vescovi. Anzi, spesso chi osa affrontare il problema è messo ai margini.
Il padre Regis Scanlon, direttore spirituale e cappellano dei Missionari della Carità di Madre Teresa di Calcutta a Denver, ha spiegato che l’errata interpretazione dello studio del John Jay College, tutta concentrata sulla pedofilia, mettendo l’accento sulla protezione dei bambini in età prepuberale ha consentito al problema dell’omosessualità di sfuggire quasi completamente all’analisi.
Don Dariusz Oko, prete dell’arcidiocesi di Cracovia, docente dell’Università pontificia Giovanni Paolo II della stessa città, nel suo saggio Con il Papa contro l’omoeresia nella Chiesa (https://www.riscossacristiana.it/con-il-papa-contro-lomoeresia-di-don-dariusz-oko/) già alcuni anni fa denunciò il diffondersi nella gerarchia ecclesiastica di una rete di omosessualità. E adesso, intervistato da Lifesitenews (https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/mccarrick-is-tip-of-the-iceberg-polish-priest-who-warned-of-gay-bishops-5-y) sostiene che un caso come quello di McCarrick rappresenta solo la punta dell’iceberg di un fenomeno ben più esteso.
Sulla stessa linea sono don Davide Cito, docente alla Pontificia università della Santa Croce, secondo il quale su quattrocento casi che giungono a Roma ogni anno il 90 per cento riguarda abusi omosessuali su adolescenti, dai 15 ai 17 anni, e Christine Vollmer, già membro del Pontificio consiglio per la famiglia (dal 1994 al 2016), che in un saggio pubblicato un anno fa (https://www.thecatholicthing.org/2017/07/15/when-waves-break-over-the-barque-of-peter/) ha spiegato come il problema degli abusi nella Chiesa, anche se viene sempre presentato come pedofilia, è in realtà questione di efebofilia, o pederastia: ovvero si tratta di preti omosessuali che predano adolescenti.

Il silenzio del vescovo sulla falange cattolica al Gay pride

Si chiamano Katholische junge Gemeinde (KjG), ossia Giovani Cattolici Parrocchiani e vengono da Stoccarda. Hanno deciso di partecipare, quasi in un centinaio, al Gay Pride della loro cittadina e di parteciparvi proprio come gruppo cattolico. E il vescovo? In silenzio, per paura o codardia. I gay pride assomigliano sempre più alle marce di propaganda dei regimi politici totalitari del passato. 


Si chiamano Katholische junge Gemeinde (KjG), ossia Giovani Cattolici Parrocchiani e vengono da Stoccarda in Germania. Questi giovani parrocchiani hanno sfatato un luogo comune: le popolazione latine sono più fantasiose di quelle sassoni. Infatti i membri del KjG hanno deciso di partecipare, quasi in un centinaio, al Gay Pride della loro cittadina e di parteciparvi proprio come gruppo cattolico. Gli slogan che urlavano appartengono ormai allo stereotipato repertorio drammatico dell’omoeresia: “Dio ti ha fatto così e ti ama così”, “Il Papa ti ama così come sei”, “Devi essere felice così come sei”, “Non dovresti preoccuparti di ciò che gli altri pensano di te”. Poi un cartello tentava di trovare un appiglio teologico all’omogenitorialità: “Gesù aveva ... due padri".

Katholisch.de, il sito dei vescovi tedeschi, ha plaudito all’iniziativa e ha dato spazio a Miriam Lay, membro della direzione diocesana del KjG. La Lay ha dichiarato: "Dio ama tutti indipendentemente dal proprio sesso o orientamento sessuale. Molti conoscono solo la posizione conservatrice della Chiesa, Vogliamo cambiarla".

Gli organizzatori del Gay Pride hanno dato pure un premio al gruppo KjG, che conta circa 3.000 membri. Le motivazioni si riferivano al fatto che il gruppo ha dato un significativo contributo ai temi della "diversità, dell’accettazione e dell’uguaglianza".

Il vescovo di Stoccarda ovviamente tace. Codardia? Silenzio assenso? Desiderio di allinearsi al nuovo che avanza? Oppure addirittura indifferenza dato che ormai di gruppi cattolici che in materia di omosessualità sposano idee non cattoliche se ne contano a bizzeffe? Non è dato di saperlo. A questo proposito però cade a fagiolo una dichiarazione che il vescovo del Kazakistan Athanasius Schneider ha rilasciato il 28 luglio scorso. Mons Schneider ha affermato che "c'è un diffuso clima di silenzio, passività e paura tra coloro che nella Chiesa devono affrontare senza ambiguità questa situazione e proteggere la vita del Chiesa dall'infiltrazione del veleno dell'ideologia dell'omosessualità e del gender, e proclamare la verità della creazione di Dio e dei suoi santi comandamenti”. 

Ha poi aggiunto che le “cosiddette manifestazioni dei Gay pride assomigliano inequivocabilmente alle marce di propaganda dei regimi politici totalitari del passato”. Il paragone è in effetti azzeccato. Le marce dei regimi nazista e comunista erano una esibizione di forza e nello stesso tempo una sintesi simbolica dell’universo ideologico a cui si ispiravano. Parimenti i Gay Pride, dove “l’orgoglio gay” viene sbandierato come atto di sfida e dove i carri, l’abbigliamento (scarno), i cartelli tenuti in mano dai partecipanti condensano tutto il portato culturale del mondo omosessualista. Cambia solo il tono della marcia: austera quelle del passato, fintamente ilare quelle omosessuali. Una ilarità che sappiamo bene è rivolta unicamente a chi si mostra gay friendly. Gli altri sono solo oggetto di dileggio, insulti e attacchi rabbiosi.

Torniamo ai giovani KjG i quali hanno riproposto una ormai frustra strategia per sostituire il Credo apostolico con quello gaio: affermare che occorre accogliere la persona omosessuale e così facendo accogliere l’omosessualità e che Dio ti ama così come sei, dimentichi del fatto che Dio non ama né il peccato, né il peccatore, bensì la persona nonostante pecchi e dunque sia peccatrice. 

Ce ne rendiamo conto: oggi queste riflessioni appaiono sottigliezze teologiche e morali, ma ciò è avvenuto perché il peso dell’ideologia arcobaleno ha schiacciato queste verità imponenti come montagne assottigliandone lo spessore nel percepito comune che le considera ormai irrilevanti se non addirittura “contrarie allo spirito del Vangelo”, come si suol dire.

          Ford Celebrates the 10 Millionth Mustang      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Henry Ford began manufacturing automobiles for a curious American population when he invented the assembly line production process in 1913.

There certainly were a number of legendary vehicles made in those early years, perhaps most notably the Model T.  But it wasn’t until 51 years later that Ford Motor Co. revealed its first sports car in grand fashion at the 1964 World’s Fair in Flushing Meadows, N.Y.

For Ford, persistence certainly paid off.

The 10 millionth Ford Mustang rolled off the assembly line at the revolutionary automaker’s Flat Rock Assembly Plant on Wednesday. It continues to be the best-selling muscle car of all time.

Like its iconic rival —  the Chevrolet Corvette — the Ford Mustang has always been manufactured in America. During its 54-year lifespan, the Mustang has been built in San Jose, Calif., Metuchen, N.J. and at the original production home of Ford in Dearborn, Mich. Production was consolidated at Flat Rock Assembly Plant in 2004, located about 25 miles southwest of Detroit.

"Mustang is the heart and soul of this company and a favorite around the world," said Jim Farley, the company's president of global markets. "I get the same thrill seeing a Mustang roll down a street in Detroit, London, or Beijing that I felt when I bought my first car — a 1966 Mustang coupe that I drove across the country as a teenager. Mustang is a smile-maker in any language."

Ford took time on Wednesday to celebrate the Mustang, including with a parade from Ford’s Dearborn headquarters to the Flat Rock Assembly plant that featured a Mustang from every model year.

Pony car No. 10 million is painted Wimbledon White, just like the sports car Ford recognizes as the first production vehicle stamped with serial number ending in 001. It is a 2019 GT convertible, with a 460-horsepower V8 and a six-speed manual transmission.

The Mustang has come a long way in 54 years, when the original V8 engine possessed just 164 horsepower and a transmission with half the forward speeds.

“Many vehicles have hit the 10-million mark over the years, but they tend to be either practical family cars – like the Volkswagen Passat and Honda Accord – or long-running utilitarian haulers like the Ford F-150,” Matt Anderson, curator of transportation at the Henry Ford Museum told the Detroit Free Press. “Mustang is a fun car, something owners tend to purchase as a second – or maybe third – vehicle rather than a one-and-only daily drive. That makes Mustang’s 10 million milestone all the more impressive.”

          Ohio, Kansas elections too close to call; Trump claims win      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

WESTERVILLE, Ohio — Two high-stakes elections that tested President Donald Trump's clout and cost both parties millions of dollars were too close to call on Wednesday. Trump claimed victory in one nevertheless and proclaimed himself '5 for 5' for Tuesday's Election Day.

In battleground Ohio, the president took credit for Republican Troy Balderson's performance, calling it "a great victory," though the congressional contest could be headed to a recount. Democrats could also celebrate their strong showing in the district that has gone Republican for decades.

"We're not stopping now," Democrat Danny O'Connor told cheering supporters Tuesday night. Whoever is eventually declared the winner in the special election will take office immediately but only until the end of the year. The two men will face off again in November for the full 2019-2020 term.

But Trump declared unconditional victory, tweeting Wednesday, "As long as I campaign and/or support Senate and House candidates (within reason), they will win!"

He claimed to have helped five GOP candidates win, including Bill Schuette for Michigan governor, John James for Michigan Senate and Josh Hawley for Missouri Senate. "5 for 5!" Trump tweeted.

Though, as in Ohio, the Kansas primary for governor was too close to call.

With election officials halting the vote count Wednesday morning, Secretary of State Kris Kobach led incumbent Gov. Jeff Colyer by fewer than 200 votes. It could be several days before all absentee votes are counted.

The day's races in five states, like many before them, tested the persistence of Trump's fiery supporters and the momentum of the Democratic Party's anti-Trump resistance.

The results were helping determine the political landscape — and Trump's standing within his own party — as the GOP defends its House and Senate majorities this fall.

If Balderson holds on in Ohio, Republicans will have won eight of nine special House elections since 2016, most in Republican-leaning districts.

In Kansas, Republicans were fighting among themselves in an unusual battle for governor in which the president sided with the incumbent's challenger.

A new state law allows ballots postmarked as of Tuesday to be counted, so long as they arrive within three days of Election Day.

Kobach received a late endorsement from Trump. Colyer received the endorsement of the National Rifle Association and had the backing of Kansas political legend Bob Dole.

Should the polarizing Kobach win the primary, some Republican operatives fear he could lose the governorship to Democrats this fall. The race could become further disrupted if Kansas City-area businessman Greg Orman makes it onto the November ballot. He submitted petitions Monday with more than 10,000 signatures for what could become the most serious independent run for Kansas governor in decades.

Trump made his preference clear for Kobach.

"He is a fantastic guy who loves his State and our Country - he will be a GREAT Governor and has my full & total Endorsement! Strong on Crime, Border & Military," the president tweeted on the eve of the election.

In Kansas' 3rd Congressional District, Sharice Davids became the state's first Native American and gay nominee for Congress.

The 38-year-old attorney and activist prevailed in a close six-candidate Democratic primary and will face four-term Republican Rep. Kevin Yoder.

Davids edged labor lawyer Brent Welder, who received the endorsements and a June campaign visit from Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and New York House candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Democrats are targeting the district, which includes the state's metropolitan Kansas City area. Hillary Clinton narrowly won it in the 2016 presidential race.

In Ohio, the script for the special election was somewhat familiar this year: An experienced Trump loyalist, Balderson, was fighting a strong challenge from O'Connor, a fresh-faced Democrat in the state's 12th congressional District, a Columbus-area suburban area held by the Republican Party for more than three decades. As voters were going to the polls, Trump said Balderson would make a "great congressman."

The winner takes the seat previously held by Pat Tiberi, a nine-term incumbent who resigned to take a job with an Ohio business group.

There were at least 3,367 provisional ballots left to be reviewed. That's enough for O'Connor to potentially pick up enough to force a recount.

The Associated Press does not declare winners in races subject to an automatic recount.

In a special election season that featured nearly a dozen congressional contests, Democrats claimed just a handful of wins, but they may have cause for optimism this fall. In virtually every special election test dating back to the spring of 2017, Democratic candidates performed significantly better than their party had in those same places two years earlier.

Trump won Ohio's 12th Congressional District, for example, by more than 11 points in 2016; on Tuesday night, Balderson and O'Connor were separated by less than 1 point.

There are 79 House races this fall considered more competitive than the Ohio district — at least looking at Trump's 2016 performance — according to data compiled by the Democrats' national campaign committee.

Despite the deadlocked race, the details of the Ohio returns suggest considerably higher Democratic enthusiasm less than 100 days before the midterms.

O'Connor's total of nearly 100,000 votes far exceeded what the Republican Tiberi's Democratic opponent got in 2014. Balderson's total — just more than 101,500 votes — was barely two-thirds of Tiberi's 2014 mark of about 150,000.

"Over the next three months, I'm going to do everything I can to keep America great again, so that when we come back here in November — get ready, we gotta come back here in November — I have earned your vote for a second time," Balderson told supporters.

It's unclear how much Trump's support helped or hurt Balderson. Described by campaign operatives as a "Whole Foods" district, the largely suburban region features a more affluent and educated voter base than the typical Trump stronghold.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a leading voice in the GOP's shrinking anti-Trump wing, once represented the district in Congress.

At times, the race centered on Trump's tax cuts as much as the candidates.

O'Connor and his Democratic allies railed against the tax plan, casting it as a giveaway for the rich that exacerbates federal deficits and threatens Medicare and Social Security. Balderson and his Republican allies have backed away from the tax plan in recent weeks, training their fire instead on top House Democrat Nancy Pelosi.

O'Connor's campaign spent $2.25 million on advertising compared to Balderson's $507,000, according to campaign tallies of ad spending. But the Republican campaign arm and its allied super PAC picked up the slack, spending more than $4 million between them.

In Michigan , former state Rep. Rashida Tlaib is poised to become the first Muslim woman in Congress. She won the Democratic nomination to run unopposed in November.

The field was set in two Senate contests.

In Missouri, Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill claimed her party's nomination, while state Attorney General Josh Hawley will represent the GOP.

And in Michigan, Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow will take on military veteran and business executive John James, who won the GOP nomination. James would join Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina as the chamber's only black Republicans.

Trump tweeted that James is "a potential Republican star."

          My Kids Are Too Young For Halloween, but I Bring Them Trick-or-Treating Anyway      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Many parents opt out of taking their babies trick-or-treating on Halloween. I get it. The kids are too small, they won't remember a thing, they can't walk up to a house and ask for candy, and you feel a little bad splurging on an adorable costume that definitely won't fit them for more than a week. But if you're on the fence about taking your littlest ones door-to-door this year, I'm here to tell you that it can also be totally worth it.

No, they won't remember their first time trick-or-treating, but they will have those obnoxious family photos with our matching costumes to look back on.

For my son's first Halloween, he was only five months old, so I debated whether or not I should take him trick-or-treating. Bringing him meant I had to carry him, and if he was in a costume, that would make things even more of a challenge. It also meant that my husband and I had to do all the actual trick-or-treating while he smiled and charmed everyone. But as most first-time parents know, we really wanted to show him off. So, after a little bit of thought and a lot of costume searching, we dressed him up in a Detroit Tigers costume. He couldn't have looked any cuter. My husband, in-laws, and I walked the streets and took turns having him strapped inside the baby carrier or planted on our hip. People kept stopping us and commenting about how cute he was, and to be honest, hearing those things all night made me so happy. My son was all smiles at every new face that looked his way (many of whom were in costumes), and even though he won't remember it, I like to think that gave him a really good foundation for fun Halloween memories. So, after that first successful year, we decided to do it again when we had our daughter.

Related: I Should Probably Feel Bad About the Halloween Prank I Play on My Kids Every Year, but It's Just Too Good

We immediately became that family of four that wears matching themed costumes. Cheesy, I know, but I just can't help myself. It's so fun! On my daughter's first Halloween, we all went as part of the Curious George crew. My husband was The Man with the Yellow Hat, I was Professor Wiseman, my almost 2-year-old son was Curious George himself, and our baby daughter was a banana. She definitely won't remember her first time trick-or-treating with her big brother, but she will have those obnoxious family photos with our matching costumes to look back on, and that's more than worth it to me. The photos will serve as a reminder of the early days when my husband and I were just starting to build our very own family traditions.

I understand why some parents don't want to bring their babies trick-or-treating, but I definitely don't think those who do should be shamed because of it. Yes, it's a lot of work and the weather rarely cooperates, but it's also about spending quality time together as a family. And those photos (of matching costumes or not) will last a lifetime for both you and your children. You'll be able to look back on them and tell your kids all about their very first Halloween, and that's something they'll always remember.

Ford celebrates 10 millionth Mustang while banking on car's drawThe Ford Mustang -- an iconic American symbol of cool -- reached a major milestone Wednesday as the 10 millionth vehicle rolled off an assembly line at a Detroit-area plant. Ford marked the occasion for the car, celebrated in American song and film and recognized the world over as a quintessentially American cultural export, with a big party and parade at the Michigan headquarters -- complete with a flyover from World War II-era P-51 Mustang fighter jets that are the car's namesake. It is a key moment for Ford, which is banking on the Mustang's wide appeal to help it grow global market share.

The Michigan All-Numbers Team: Defense Seth August 7th, 2018 at 1:22 PM

Previously:

This week: We continue picking the best number for each position with the defensive side. Offense is here.

Rules: It's what you wore when you contributed there. Starts, stats, big plays, etc.

All photos from priceless resource UM Bentley Library unless stated otherwise. All-Americans highlighted.

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

A Short History of Defensive Positions

My goal so this wouldn't just be some useless offseason #content was to include all players since they started having numbers in the '20s. That way it's not just "here's the guys we remember from the last 10 years."

That makes defense WAY harder to do this (correctly) than for offense. 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:

image_thumb[28]
#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.

Hello: Quintel Kent Brian August 6th, 2018 at 4:26 PM

Quintel Kent is sleeper #2, but unlike Cole Bajema he looks set to stay that way. Michigan offered after he impressed at camp, and that offer remains Kent's only one from a Power 5 school. He doesn't have imposing size and was reasonably productive for his high school team so the relevant people have seen him. Without something out of the ordinary happening this fall, Kent will be one of the lowest-rated recruits in Michigan's class.

That's not fate, of course, but usually you like to see some sort of indication that the ranking isn't everything. Especially at a position where Michigan struggled last year and is struggling this year.

GURU RATINGS

Rivals ESPN 247 247 Comp
2*, 5.4 rating NR 3*, 84 rating
#1105 overall, #130 WR
N/A

As mentioned, these rankings are extant and probably won't change too much. Rivals will give Kent a courtesy bump to a low three-star at some point.

[Hit THE JUMP for scouting, video, and the rest.]

SCOUTING

There isn't much, as you'd expect. 24/7's Bill Greene has a detailed post that makes it clear he's seen the kid in person a few times and very much reads like an attempt to say what he thinks without saying what he thinks:

Kent catches everything thrown his way, and a teammate of his told me he does this every day in practice as well. He is a fine route runner, as we can see on film, and he has enough speed to play in the Big Ten. ... not going to be a kid that is physically ready to contribute as a true freshman ... I do think Kent is rated properly, but will be flexible enough to adjust it after seeing him play this year as a senior.

Greene's seen him and thinks he's a MAC recruit, more or less. Brandon Brown's impression off film:

...quite slight but he's sudden, quick and seems to have a knack for getting open. ... going to have to bulk up and add strength  ... pretty well versed in winning at the line of scrimmage and seems to understand how to use his strengths to win against defensive backs.

Touch The Banner:

From watching film of him, though, I don’t see whatever Michigan must see. There’s nothing about him that jumps off the screen. He has average size with average acceleration and average top-end speed for an FBS recruit. He’s not a nuanced route runner, and he doesn’t get great separation from defensive backs, some of whom don’t look stellar themselves.

Overall, I don’t think this does anything to push Michigan’s program forward. There are some walk-on guys who I can see being just as successful as I would project Kent to be. He may be able to be an effective slot receiver if he’s a decent blocker, because slot guys can be productive based on play calling and taking advantage of play action. I just don’t see a whole lot of upside from him at this point.

And that's more or less it as far as scouting goes. Kent provided a little more insight into his game:

 

"I can play either a wide receiver or a slot receiver, but I also return kicks and punts," he noted. "I think I have good speed, and I can play any of the wide receiver positions."

OFFERS

Kent had five MAC offers and a couple of I-AA offers before Michigan stepped in.

HIGH SCHOOL

St Ed's in Cleveland is a powerhouse that sends guys to major colleges on the regular. Kyle Kalis is the most recent to head to AA.

STATS

I didn't actually run across a full season number.

FAKE 40 TIME

Kent claims a 4.56 40, which gets four fakes out of five.

VIDEO

PREDICTION BASED ON FLIMSY EVIDENCE

This is the kind of camp commit that seems to come from resignation. Michigan is credibly in on zero highly touted wide receivers and needs numbers at the position after taking just a flier last year, so they were likely to come from camp. It's nice that Michigan saw him in person twice, but for a camp offer to mean something good it needs to be made in a context where it's clear that Michigan is willing to take camp kid X despite having a fair or better shot at a big-timer.

And then there's nothing else to indicate the recruiting sites are wrong about a kid at a powerhouse they've scouted and didn't think was a P5 prospect. A useful, non-star slot guy seems to be the ceiling here.

UPSHOT FOR THE REST OF THE CLASS

Kent is the second slot-ish receiver Michigan's added along with George Johnson III, which makes this commitment a little bit odder yet—Michigan is not a school with a heavy demand for slots. I imagine they're still in the market for a bigger guy on the outside, or maybe two. Probably one, because the chance Michigan gets in on a touted player at this point is close to zero.

That last point says the complete opposite to me. It's exactly right that they could have called Kent on NSD and asked him to commit and he would have, but they wanted him now. That's not a resignation, in my opinion, that's the staff wanting to secure the kid that won WR MVP at their camp. I'm not saying Kent should be a top 100 recruit, but the staff saw him in person and asked him to commit in August. That says they like him enough to not be a last minute scramble kid.

But then why accept his offer now?  If it's true they could have gotten him at any time, the "resignation" that Brian mentions wouldn't matter.  You can resign yourself on NSD-1 days out and still be fine.  

Also, this was apparently posted a couple weeks ago by Lorenz saying that it was a race between Oregon and Michigan, even though all the current crystal balls are for USC, which seems almost like a default assumption and not really based on any updated information.

No because literally nobody outside of Michigan homers expect those guys to come here. You really think the staff is taking a guy who wasn't a take a few months ago because they think they will get those guys? Its nice to be optimistic but at some point you have to read the writing on the wall, the staff isn't getting it done at the wide receiver recruiting position. Maybe a fantastic year fixes that but nobody thinks we are getting those guys except you.

1. "Getting" and "credibly in on" are completely different things. We are certainly in the top three, maybe two for both Ford and Johnson as of 4:45pm, August 6th, 2018. That doesn't mean we get either, but it does mean that saying we are not credibly in on any touted receiver prospect is a questionable statement.

2. Sam made a point on his show this morning that I agree with: Michigan could push for and get Kent literally on signing day if he was a backup plan. They wanted him to commit now, which tells me that it's incredibly unlikely that he took the spot of a Ford or a Johnson. The staff plain wanted Kent, he will be a slot, and we will still be pursuing Ford and Johnson heavily. 

3. The 2016 and 2017 classes brought in 8 WRs, all of whom were either a 4-star or better, an All-American, or both. The only non-4+ stars or non-All-American WRs we have signed under Harbaugh have been Grant Perry (almost always open, safely outplaying his ranking) and Ronnie Bell (complete flyer the year after the greatest WR class in program history). I think the notion that Harbaugh has "not gotten it done" at receiver is laughable.

It is certainly not laughable. The 2017 class was great and all appear to be on track for good careers but at some point you have to acknowledge that 2017 is the exception and not the rule.

Perry- Good pickup

Nate Johnson- gone (albeit for other reasons)

Crawford- Total wiff

Mcdoom- No more than a gadget player

And the recruiting in 2018 and 2019 at the position has been the worst of all the position groups.

It’s amazing that the 2017 class was so good that it is able to make up for all of this. But they need to get some guys in the 2020 class (Branham is a good start but more is needed) or else the future looks very grim.

Mitchell, Johnson, and Crawford being gone deal with issues independent from recruiting (actually Crawford might not, since he was buried on the depth chart due to great recruiting the next cycle).

 

You can discuss oversights of character flaws, or usage once on the team, in a separate discussion perhaps, but the ability to get receiver talent to come to Michigan has not been lacking in Harbaugh's years. That's all I am pointing out. There's a contention by some that we have been unable to recruit highly touted receivers - the facts don't support that contention. Eight of the ten receivers Jim has signed in 3.5 cycles have been 4 or 5-stars, All-American game invitees, or both.

Brad Hawkins was another good receiver recruit.  Anyway, after having the top wide receiver recruit in the country last year (DPJ) I'm still not complaining.  Worst case, Brian is right and we aren't in the running for any of the remaining top uncommitted recruits.  Best case, JERRY RICE!

Or the non homer version is that Kent wasn't going to wait until signing day and miss out on a spot at a MAC school and be left holding the bag. So they knew he might go off the board to a MAC school if they waited too long and they had to decide if they felt confident enough about Ford or Johnson to risk not taking Kent. 

Ford has been to Colorado as much as he's been here, Oregon is a major player and has a much better history of pulling  players from California. ND is the leader for Johnson and Stanford is considered their primary competition. Who cares if we are 3rd for both guys if nobody actually thinks we are going to get them? Being third gets you nothing in recruiting.

There is literally zero justification for taking Kent now if you think you can get him on signing day, there is no downside to waiting. So if they knew they could get him on signing day and took him now its incredibly poor recruiting strategy from the staff because if they still think they can get Ford and Johnson they'll have 4 receivers in a class and some other recruits are pushed out. Recruiting has a finite number of spots.

99 out of 100 kids who "go off the board to a MAC school" would flip their commitment to a top P5 school if one came knocking on signing day.

Likewise, there are plenty of MAC schools who have room in their class to take a guy at the last minute who was in consideration for a scholarship at a top P5 school, so Kent wouldn't have been screwing himself over by waiting to commit.

If you agree with Webb and think they could have easily had him on signing day what is the justification for taking him now? I only see negative potential options. Unless the argument is a bunch of other high profile schools were about to get involved, which doesn't seem like the case there isn't a lot of upside to this take right now.

Editor’s note: This article originally appeared in a slightly different form on CenterPoint Education Solutions’ blog.

Earlier this year, I had the pleasure of visiting a group of schools across the country distinguished by their embrace of high-quality curriculum. The tour was sponsored by the Knowledge Matters Campaign, which seeks to lift up the stories of schools that use knowledge-rich English language arts curriculum to promote educational excellence, provide equity, and inspire in students a passion for learning.

The campaign is particularly interested in drawing attention to schools and curricula that bring a joyous, knowledge-filled schooling experience to students of poverty, as they have been the ones particularly harmed by a skills-based approach that is arguably one of the most significant factors in reading scores remaining flat over the past twenty years (see this article published by the Campaign last month), to say nothing of driving out a love of learning in our young people.

Most of the schools we visited on the tour had adopted a curriculum highly rated by EdReports, the independent non-profit organization that, for the past four years, has served as something of a Consumer Reports on Common Core-aligned curriculum. Three key instructional shifts: regular practice with complex texts and their academic language; reading, writing, and speaking grounded in evidence from texts; and building knowledge through content-rich curriculum, underpin the Common Core standards in English language arts and are what guide the reviews on EdReports.

The schools included on the tour employed a variety of instructional approaches and represented different geographic locations, demographic diversity, and governance structures. The common feature was their commitment to knowledge-rich schooling and their faith in comprehensive, high-quality curriculum, implemented school-wide, as a means of achieving it.

So, what stood out to us as we visited these schools? Without a doubt, the most salient feature—which was, in fact, a distinguishing feature (as it was in stark contrast to our experience in schools last fall that had not embraced the importance of knowledge-building)—was the fact that all students were engaged with grade-level complex texts. While we certainly saw the full range of student reading levels one would expect of a school serving high-need students (including typically large numbers of English learners), in each classroom we visited, texts were interrogated communally, thus exposing students, who may not have been able to read all the words on the page, to key vocabulary and content knowledge. Importantly, all kids got to discuss, amongst themselves, the ideas in the text. This is huge. As Jaden, a previously struggling reader at Monticello-Brown Summit Elementary School in Greensboro, North Carolina, told me, “I like it when we read it (a book) together because you can get others’ opinions. I like being in book arguments.”

Another profound experience of the tour was the amount of content knowledge these students were exposed to. A recent survey by the Thomas B. Fordham Institute found that 56 percent of ELA teachers worry, “not enough attention has been paid to building students’ general knowledge,” with 46 percent saying their curriculum and/or instructional materials “do a poor job of building students’ general knowledge.” A brief review of the travel blog associated with the Knowledge Matters School Tour will reveal a very different story, with topics—mind you, for K–8 students—ranging from the War of 1812, Athenian governance, medieval Europe, the lost colony of Roanoke, Galileo, animal anatomy, patterns in nature, Greek mythology, etc.

It’s no wonder, given how much kids like to “learn stuff,” that a final standout feature of the schools we visited was virtually no disciplinary problems. The look and feel—what some would call the school culture—at Maryvale, a classical school in Phoenix, and Detroit Prep/Detroit Achievement Academy, which both use EL Education 2.0 (formerly named Expeditionary Learning), were studies in contrast. But the level of student engagement was uniformly high. In both cases, and indeed in each school we visited, there was a palpable sense—among kids and adults alike—that real learning was taking place, that knowledge was expanding.

The word I most associate with the Knowledge Matters School Tour is “confidence.” While teachers told us that learning the new curriculum was the hardest thing they’d ever done in teaching, they’ve also report it being among the best things to have happened to them professionally. After years of floundering, knowing they weren’t really meeting their students’ needs but not knowing what to do about it, they report now being more certain that they’re preparing their students for academic success in the future.

When we asked the teachers to give advice to colleagues around the country who might be at the start of their journey with a new, high-quality curriculum, we generally got some version of, “have faith in the curriculum.” For many, it wasn’t until they’d gone through the school year that they developed a full appreciation. “I had to see the whole picture” says a second-grade teacher in Dayton who added, “This is by far my best year of teaching in seventeen years.”

More importantly even than these teachers’ journey to professional confidence was what we saw and heard from the kids. As Aurora, a fifth-grade student in Riverside, California, told me, “We learn higher level things and we are not afraid to share what we learn.”

The enduring images of the Knowledge Matters School Tour are of deep and shared engagements with a wide range of quality informational and literary texts; a high volume of reading; students receiving far more science, social studies/history, and art instruction than is currently seen in the average public school; and near universal confidence among students—from the smallest kindergartners to students ready to advance on to middle or high school—that they were in good hands, and that their school was preparing them for the academic challenges that lay ahead.

Would that every child could feel this way about their school…

The Humanity in Action Fellowship brings together international groups of college students and recent graduates to explore national histories of discrimination and resistance—including the political foundations of racial hierarchies, Antisemitism, Islamophobia and colonial domination—as they affect different minority groups today. The Fellowship seeks to educate, connect and inspire the world's future leaders in the fields of human rights and social justice. Separate programs take place for five weeks every summer in Amsterdam, Atlanta, Berlin, Copenhagen, Sarajevo, and Warsaw.  Additionally, in the U.S., the John Lewis Fellowship brings participants to Atlanta to study America's unique history of diversity, immigration and civil rights along with present-day tensions Atlanta, and the Detroit Fellowship brings participants to Detroit to study the city's history and contemporary issues within the larger national context of the transformation of urban and regional economies at time of profound inequality in the United States.

Humanity in Action covers the costs of participation and accommodation during the fellowship programs, but Fellows will be responsible for financing the cost of round-trip airfare to their program city. Humanity in Action will cover this cost for Fellows with documented need.

Although Humanity in Action provides a modest stipend for meals, Fellows should also plan to bring spending money of approximately $750 for food and social activities during the fellowship program.

In September, The Studio Theatre Tierra del Sol (806 San Marino Drive, The Villages, FL) will open the first production of its third season with the musical The Story of My Life, with Music & Lyrics by Neil Bartram and Book by Brian Hill.

Thomas, a successful author is tasked to write the eulogy of his lifelong friend Alvin. Delving deep into the recesses of his mind, Thomas finds himself staring at a notebook of empty pages. Sifting through thousands of memories with his inspiring and eccentric friend, Thomas celebrates a lifetime of love, devotion, and friendship. Guided by Alvin we see their complicated relationship and the influence it had on making Thomas' dreams a reality. This intimate two-person musical celebrates the balance necessary for a lasting friendship and the consequences when life gets in the way.

Portraying the character Thomas Weaver, is Alan Gillespie. Originally hailing from Detroit, Michigan, Gillespie has been acting in New York City for the last twenty years.

His most coveted role was Chris in Miss Saigon, in which he played over 950 performances. His talents also include being a Musician; he's well-versed in playing the trumpet and percussion. Alan is looking forward his first time on The Studio Theatre's stage and also embarking on an intimate two person show that deals with true lifelong friendship that audiences can relate to. Alan is a proud member of the Actor's Equity Association.

Playing Alvin Kelby is actor Alex Jorth. Born and raised in Davenport, Iowa and currently residing in Boynton Beach, Florida. Jorth may be recognized at our venue, as he is currently gracing The Studio Theatre's stage this summer, performing in Life Could Be a Dream as Skip, produced by Victory Productions.

          These Are The Places In America Where All Your Salary Goes To Rent      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Submitted by Priceonomics

A career in “business” is broad enough that it can mean just about anything. Hundreds, if not thousands of jobs, can be classified as “business” related work ranging from being an accountant to a chief medical officer.

We analyzed data from Priceonomics customer Business Student.com, a company that has created an index of 127 “business” careers, where they track the average salaries and how they vary by location. While these jobs are by no means comprehensive of all jobs in business, they comprise a representative index of business careers and their salaries, that we call the “Business Jobs Index.”

So what are the highest and lowest paying jobs in our index? Which cities have highest paying business jobs and where you’ll still have money leftover after paying rent if you live there?

Across our business index, the highest paying job paid $187,000 on average in the United States (Medical Director). The lowest paying business job we track is Security Supervisor, which pays $31,000 per year. The average business job we track pays $75,000 per year.

Across the country, the highest paying business jobs are in Washington, DC, California, New York, and Massachusetts. The states with the lowest paying business jobs are Montana, Idaho, and North Dakota. We also analyzed 215 of the largest job markets in America to find the cities that have the highest business salaries; all five of the top cities with the highest paying business jobs are located in Silicon Valley, with Palo Alto, CA having the highest paying jobs of all.

Lastly, we found there were a number of cities like San Francisco, Miami and Los Angeles that have high paying business jobs, but most of your income will go to paying rent.

Before diving into the data, a brief note on the methodology of our Business Jobs Index. The index is comprised of 127 popular business jobs.

For each of these jobs, we track the average salary on Indeed.com by location.

In our index, the highest paying jobs are senior positions in the medical industry or “C-suite” position like Chief Marketing Officer. The vast majority of the business jobs in our index pay less than a $100,000 salary however.

Popular jobs like Social Media Manager, Accountant, and HR Coordinator all pay less than $50,000 per year.

Which states pay the most in our Business Jobs Index? The following chart shows the average salary of business jobs by state, ranked from highest to lowest:

Washington DC, California, New York, and Massachusetts are the four highest paying places for business jobs, where the typical position pays around $90,000 per year.  The lowest paying states for business jobs are mostly in the MidWest.

Next, how much do business salaries vary by city? We analyze the average business salary on the 215 largest job markets we track. The chart below shows the cities with the highest and lowest salaries:

Almost unbelievable, the top nine highest paying cities for business jobs are all in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The high cost of living and number technology employers have catapulted business salaries in the Bay to over $100,000 per year and nearly twice as much as cities on the “lowest” business salaries list.

However, places that pay a lot of money also tend to be very expensive. We were curious, after you have to pay your rent, how much of your salary is left for anything else?

Below, we show the average salary by city, the average monthly rent for a two bedroom apartment according to Rent Jungle, and how much money is left over on an annual basis. For it, we looked at the top 65 largest markets on our site (excluding Athens, GA where there was no rent data available).  Keep in mind this is a preliminary analysis that doesn’t include taxes, child care, partner-earnings, or other factors that can influence cost of living.

The cities where you have the most money leftover after rent are a mix of ones with high salaries (Palo Alto, San Jose, Sunnyvale) and ones with decently high salaries but low rents (Detroit, Chicago, Las Vegas). Considering that some of the states these cities are in have relatively high state income taxes (California) and others have zero state income tax (Texas, Nevada), further analysis should include taxes and other expenses.

And which cities do you have the least money leftover after rent? Below are the top ten:

The places where most of your paycheck goes to rent is actually cities with high salaries but very high rent. Only College Station and Orlando have relatively low rent and make the list because of low salaries. Most of the other cities are places like San Francisco with high salaries but exorbitant rent ($4,509 for an average two bedroom apartment rental).

***

Conclusion

There is a huge variety of business jobs out there with an equal variance in salaries. Not all jobs pay a lot, but some do, especially in California, New York, Massachusetts and Washington, DC.

However, cities that pay a lot in salaries also typically have very high cost of living. The city with the highest business salaries is Palo Alto, but it’s also a place with some of the highest property prices in the country. Additionally, some places like San Francisco and Los Angeles do have high salaries, but you don’t take home very much money after your rent.

Curious how much money you’ll have leftover from your paycheck after you pay rent? Here’s the list of all the cities we analyzed:


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

Authored by Kevin Barrett via Unz.com,

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

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

How might civil unrest spill over into civil war?

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

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

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

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

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

American War

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

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

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

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

Zone 23

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          Comment on Twins have been experimenting with “opener” strategy by detroitfanatic      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
All you folks have opinion without facts. The Opener does not go "2 or 3" innings. The Opener gets through the best hitters, so that the starter (multi inning reliever), can go through the crap hitters twice, and the good hitters once. We will use the Angels as an example, because there is such a disparity between their good and bad hitters. Trout, Upton, Simmons, Ohtani are the only good hitters. So the Rays will use Stanek and his 100 MPH fastball to get through 5 batters, those 4, plus crappy Pujols, whom the Angels insist on batting cleanup every day. So whether Stanek goes 1.2 innings, or 0 innings and leaves down 5-0, he gets the best the Angels have to offer, so that the starter (long reliever) only has to face them twice maximum. Once they are past those 5, Faria, Yarbrough, Chirinos or Beeks face 6-9, then 1-9, then manager's discretion. So many people, even the baseball wise one's, don't understand this. Your non-ace starter only facing Trout twice is a good thing. I suspect we see this from every team in the postseason. Imagine Craig Kimbrel opening, and mowing down Dee Gordon, Haniger, Cruz Cano, and then bringing in Price to mow down the rest of that garbage 2 times. Then piggyback with the right handed Eovaldi for the final 6-12 outs. Game over.

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — After getting three big homers and nine innings of outstanding pitching to complete a series sweep, the Los Angeles Angels are headed into a day off with a rare feeling of contentment in their disappointing season.

The Detroit Tigers are just grateful to be going home after a horrific California road trip ended with nothing but losses.

Justin Upton and Albert Pujols hit back-to-back homers in the fifth inning, and the Angels swept the Tigers with a 6-0 victory Wednesday.

Kole Calhoun hit a leadoff homer and rookie Jaime Barria (7-7) pitched five-hit ball into the sixth inning for the Angels, who were in a 1-6 skid before getting back to .500 with their first series sweep — and their first shutout victory — since early June.

"It's always good to win like this, especially when you sweep a series," Barria said "Everybody is feeling much better.

          Why a 36-year-old Michigan oil spill still matters today      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
A Michigan oil spill is still bringing in new questions, even after its events took place over 30 years ago. It was around 1980 when Canadian oil transport company Enbridge leaked five barrels of oil into the Hiawatha National Forest. However, they were only able to clean up four of the barrels, leaving the area contaminated to this day. The same company owns 63-year-old pipelines that run under the Straits of Mackinac, causing concern over the safety of Michigan's shorelines. Detroit Free Press reporter Keith Matheny joined Cynthia Canty on Stateside to understand why this spill still matters today.
          Group pushes alternatives to oil pipeline beneath the Mackinac Straits      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
An environmental group says oil pipelines running beneath the Mackinac Straits could be shut down without disrupting oil and propane supplies in Michigan. Environmentalists say there is enough capacity on other pipelines skirting the Great Lakes to reroute the crude oil currently flowing through Line 5. The report says at least 90% of Line 5's oil goes to Canadian refineries, so it's not essential for the Marathon refinery in Detroit. Gary Street is with the group For Love of Water, or FLOW . The retired engineer says there’s no reason to continue using the aging pipeline and risk a devastating oil leak in the Mackinac Straits. “Enbridge, at that point, would have to do what we’re talking about doing now. So why wait until the disaster occurs,” says Street. Enbridge has no comment on the environmentalist group's report. The Canadian company says its pipeline is safe.

There's been a lot of concern expressed about Enbridge's oil and liquid natural gas pipelines running under Lake Michigan at the Straits of Mackinac. But Keith Matheny of the Detroit Free Press reports that an oil spill contingency specialist with the U.S. Coast Guard is more worried about the above-ground section of Line 5 running across the Upper Peninsula. From Matheny's piece : The 30-inch-diameter transmission line runs under at least 20 rivers and creeks that feed into northern Lake Michigan, and at points is within a half-mile of the lake. "Quite frankly, we see a spill in the straits as a very low probability," said Steven Keck, who's based at the Coast Guard's Sault Ste. Marie station. "But that corridor along U.S.-2 we see as a much higher probability. "We don't seem to get a lot of attention on that stretch between Manistique and St. Ignace, but it's still the Great Lakes."

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

          Obama Immigration Assistant To Speak At Dayton Conference      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Representatives from more than a dozen rust belt cities are gathering in Dayton Thursday to talk about immigration and economic development. The “Welcoming Economies” conference will include a keynote speech by Felicia Escobar , Special Assistant to the President for Immigration Policy. Global Detroit is one of the organizations sponsoring the event—the group has pushed for more immigrant-friendly policies in the city for several years. Raquel Andersen, the group’s VP of External Affairs, says groups providing services for immigrants have a lot to consider. For example, she works on homeownership and spoke with a client, a woman from Iraq, who was confused by the idea of a mortgage. “There are no mortgages in Iraq, you save for four years, you live with your family, and you buy a house outright,” Andersen says. “So it’s about really finding out what each community needs and how we might best describe all of these new concepts.” Organizations and cities at the Welcoming Economies

Scorpion Sam's Gold (Aired July 12, 1947)
Challenge of the Yukon was a long-running radio series that began on Detroit's station WXYZ (as had The Lone Ranger and The Green Hornet). The series was first heard on February 3, 1938. Under the title Sergeant Preston of the Yukon, it later transferred to television. The program was an adventure series about Sergeant William Preston of the Northwest Mounted Police and his lead sled dog, Yukon King, as they fought evildoers in the Northern wilderness during the Gold Rush of the 1890s. Preston, according to radio historian Jim Harmon, first joined the Mounties to capture his father's killer, and when he was successful he was promoted to Sergeant. Preston worked under the command of Inspector Conrad, and in the early years was often assisted by a French-Canadian guide named Pierre. Preston's staunchest ally, who was arguably the true star of the show and indeed often did more work than he did, was the brave Alaskan husky, Yukon King. Typical plots involved the pair helping injured trappers, tracking down smugglers, or saving cabin dwellers from wolverines. THIS EPISODE: July 12, 1947. ABC network. "Scorpion Sam's Gold". Sustaining. "Scorpion Sam" is a crazy old man who shoots at anyone who comes near his cabin. When Sam dies in a fire, he leaves behind a fortune in gold. Years later, the gold finds a good home! Paul Sutton, El Prowell (announcer), Mildred Merrill (writer). 29:02. Episode Notes From The Radio Gold Index.

No. Pretty much the opposite. You want your best pitchers to face the best hitters, and the fewest amount of times possible. Let 6 through 9 beat you. First, you have to accept that the more often a batter faces a pitcher in a game, the more advantage the batter has. It's a fact. The a pitcher's third time through the order is worse than his 2nd, which is worse than his first. Not debatable. Kimbrel, your best non-Sale pitcher, faces Gardner, Judge, Stanton, Gregorius. Price, a good not great pitcher gets to face 23 batters without throwing to Gardner/Judge, Stanton, Gregorius three times. That's a better maximization of Price than to have him throw to 27 batters, but face everyone 3 times. It's also a better maximization of your best reliever, Kimbrel. "Hey, we need you to get their 4 toughest batters out to start the game" is a better utilization than "You will pitch the 9th today regardless of who is up, but only if we are winning, but not by too much. If we are tied or losing, or ahead by more than 3 runs, you, our best relief pitcher, isn't pitching today"
          Late Sixties Mets Infielder: Kevin Collins (1966-1969)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Kevin Michael Collins was born August 4, 1946 in Springfield, Massachusetts. In high school he competed against future MLB players Mark Belanger & Fran Healy. 

Collins was signed out of high school by the New York Mets in 1964 for $25,000. He was part of Casey Stengel’s “Youth of America” young Mets players of the mid sixties. Collins made the club out of Spring Training 1965 at age 17. Unfortunately he tore a muscle in his throwing arm & had to wait until September to make his debut.

His first career game was at Shea Stadium on September 1sy pinch hittingin the 5th inning against the Houston Astros. His first hit came on September 22nd against the Pittsburgh Pirates. He played in just eleven games that month batting .184. He then spent the next two seasons in the minor leagues playing on an infield with Ken Boswell, Sandy Alomar & Amos Otis.

In 1966 he hit .251 with 6 HRs & 32 RBIs at AA Williamsport. He was then promoted to AAA Jacksonville playing there for two seasons. He had another brief four game stint with the Mets in September 1967. There wasn’t much room for Collins with Harrelson at short stop, Boswell at second base & Ed Charles being brought in for third base. He realized he would have to make the best of being a utility role player. In 1968 he played in 58 games mostly at third base hitting just .201 with one HR seven extra base hits a .233 on base % & 13 RBIs.

His biggest day came on August 6th at the Houston Astrodome when he hit his only HR of the season& the first HR of his career. It was a three run shot off Dave Guisti, as he drove in all four runs in the Mets 4-1 win over the Astros.

Brawl: Two days later while playing at third base, Houston’s Doug Rader came into third base with a pop up slide, landing his elbow to Collins jaw. He was knocked down, lying dazed on the floor as a bench clearing brawl followed. Coach Joe Pignatano went at it with Astros Manager Harry Walker, as did the rest of the team.

The brawl got so out of hand the Houston Police had to step in to break it up. Many believed it was retaliation from earlier in the season when the Mets Tommy Agee slid into second base & spiked Joe Morgan, who was an Astro at the time. Collins suffered a broken jaw and missed just one week of action during the incident.

At the start of the 1969 season, Collins was on the roster and appeared as a pinch hitter om Opening Day (0-1). He played in 16 games through May but hit only .150 (6-40). He hit aHR in the Mets 11-3 win over the Cardinals at St. Louis on April 20th. He was demoted to AAA Tidewater in early May, & being the true gentleman he was, he left a note in his roommate Ken Boswell’s locker that said “keep on hitting”. He also left a note in his locker which would be occupied by his roster replacement Art Shamsky saying “good luck kid”.

Collins wasn’t in the Mets plans for the future, and on July 15, 1969 he was traded along with Steve Renko, to the Montreal Expos for 1969 World Series hero Donn Clendenon. Sadly the same day he was traded was his father’s funeral, after a sudden passing. His Mets career spanned four years, 89 games batting .185, with two HRs & 15 RBIs. He would always joke in the years that followed, that "Renko and I won the World Series for the Mets,” in reference to the Clendenon trade.

In Montreal Collins played in 52 games from July 15th to October, batting .240 with 2 HRs & 12 RBIs. In 1970 with the Expos AAA team he hit .347 & had his contract purchased by the Detroit Tigers at the end of the season. He spent two years with Detroit playing on their big league club as well as with their minor league club, the Toledo Mud Hens.

In 1971 Collins batted .268 in 35 games and played his last game in the majors. Collins left baseball in 1974 at the young age of 27, because he did not want to uproot his family anymore. He finished his brief six season career as a .209 lifetime hitter with 81 hits 6 HRs 17 doubles & 34 RBIs.

Retirement: He would work in the automotive supply business for twenty years eventually becoming their Vice President.

In 1993 while visiting a plant, a forklift ran over his foot & he lost half of it. He moved to Sand Point, Michigan and remained still friends with his former Toledo Mud Hens teammate, Tiger manager Jim Leyland.

Collins was also a subject of a book with former team mate Tom Timmerman called “Role Players, the Unknown Fraternity”.

Collins passed away in Naples, Florida at the age of 69 in February 2016.
          Former Mets Coach (1982-1983 /1994-1996) & Manager (1983): "The Capitol Punisher" Frank Howard      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Frank Oliver Howard was born on August 8, 1936 in Columbus Ohio. The six foot seven inch tall, 255 pound Howard was one of the biggest players of his era. Howard was an intimidating presence at the plate, and hit some mammoth career HRs.

He attended Ohio State University playing both baseball & basketball. He was drafted by the Philadelphia Warriors of the NBA but chose to play baseball instead. He signed with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1958. He would earn the nickname of “Hondo” after a character in a John Wayne film.

After two brief appearances he became a regular in 1960 replacing Carl Furillo as the Dodger right fielder. He was the NL Rookie of the Year hitting 23 HRs with 15 doubles 77 RBIs batting .268 although he did strike out 108 times. The next year he batted .296 but was limited to just 92 games, still hitting 15 HRs.

In 1962 he had his best year in Los Angeles, hitting 31 HRs (7th in the NL) with 25 doubles 80 runs scored & 119 RBIs (5th in the NL) while batting .296. On June 30th he hit a HR against the New York Mets, in a game where Sandy Koufax threw his first career no hitter.

He came in 9th in the league’s MVP voting that season, as the Dodgers & Giants tied for first place. A three game playoff was decided for the pennant, and Howard struggled going just 1-11 as Los Angeles lost to the Giants.

The next season he hit 28 HRs with 64 RBIs (third on the Dodger team behind Ron Fairly & Tommy Davis) batting .273 as the Dodgers went on to win the World Series behind the pitching of Sandy Koufax & Don Drysdale.

In the World Series Howard hit .300 (3-10) blasting an upper deck HR off Whitey Ford in the last game of the Dodgers Series sweep. It would be big Frank’s only post season appearance in a 16 year career.

In 1964 Howard hit a three run HR on June 4th at Philadelphia’s Connie Mack Stadium leading L.A. to a 3-0 win in Sandy Koufax’s third career no hitter. Howard had another 20 plus HR season in 1964 but his batting average dropped off to .227 and he drove in 69 runs, striking out 116 times. It was his third straight season of 100 plus strike outs. After the 1964 season he was traded with three other players to the Washington Senators for Claude Osteen and $100,000.

He would spend seven years in Washington D.C. earning the new nickname of “the Capitol Punisher”. Howard became one of the league’s biggest sluggers & most feared hitters. He hit over 20 HRs six times, including three straight seasons of 40 plus HRs.

His first three seasons there he played for Gil Hodges, hitting 36 HRs third in the league behind Harmon Killebrew & Carl Yastrzemski. He also led all left fielders in fielding before switching to first base the next season.

In 1969 he gave up his uniform #9 when the Senators hired Ted Williams as their manager. Williams taught Howard how to be more patient at the plate, go deeper into the count & draw more walks.

In 1968 Howard led the American League in HRs (44) extra base hits (75) slugging % (.52 %) averaging a HR every 13 times up at bat. He was second in league in RBIs (106) and made his first of four straight All Star teams. During a stretch in May, Howard hit ten HRs in one single week, over a period of just twenty at bats.

No one has ever come close to topping this feat, in baseball history. He also had a stretch of one HR in six straight games.

In 1969 the Senators had their only winning season during Howards time there, he bashed 48 HRs (second to Harmon Killebrew) with 111 RBIs (second to Reggie Jackson) leading the league in intentional walks (29), with 60 extra base hits, & a career high .574 slugging %, while batting .296 matching a career best.

He increased his on base % to .402% as he doubled his base on balls from the previous season to 104 walks.

In 1970 he led the AL in HRs (46) RBIs (126) & walks (132) posting a .416 on base %. He hit 237 HRs in a Washington uniform the most by any player and his 1969 totals are all around season bests by any Senators Player in history.

In his last at bat at RFK Stadium he hit a massive HR off Mike Kekich of the A.L. New York team, a pitch called by Ralph Houck as a gift to the big man. He thanked the catcher when he touched home plate, threw his helmet into the crowd & said it was his biggest thrill in his playing career.

The Senators moved to Texas and became the Rangers; Howard struggled in the team’s first year in Arlington batting just .244 with 9 HRs in 95 games played, and was soon released.

At age 36 his career was winding down, he finished his last two seasons in Detroit by 1973. On September 8th he hit his final career HR at Fenway Park against the Boston Red Sox, he had hit a Hr in his previous game three days earlier as well.

He finished up his 16 year career with 382 life time HRs (59th All time), 1119 RBIs (186th all time), 1774 hits 245 doubles 35 triples 783 walks 662 extra base hits (202nd all time) and a .273 average with a .352 on base %. He struck out 1460 times putting him 56th on the all time K list.

Retirement: After his playing days, he first coached under George Bamberger in Milwaukee with the Brewers from 1977-1980. He then managed the San Diego Padres during the strike shotened 1981 season. He then came over to the New York Mets as a coach with Bamberger in 1982 as the Mets batting coach. After Bamberger resigned in 1983 Howard was named the tenth manager in Mets history.

He basically was just an interim manager, who didn’t have much to work with especially in the pitching department. He took over the team on June 3rd 1983 in Los Angeles with the team in 6th place, 9 ½ games back.

In his first game, the Mets beat Tommy Lasordas Dodgers 5-2 as Ed Lynch earned the victory. The Mets would win two out of three in Los Angeles but faltered from there. They did give Howard two four game win streaks in early August, winning eight of nine games, their best streak under his tenure. His Mets finished in last place, as the team went 52-64 in 116 games under his watch.

Although on a positive note, Daryl Strawberry was inserted in the lineup permanently winning the rookie of the year award, & the Mets acquired Keith Hernandez that June under his watch. He was replaced by Davey Johnson the following season (1984).

Howard was known as being a gentle giant, a nice guy who always appreciated the fans. Howard returned as a Met coach in 1994-996 under Dallas Green & later Bobby Valentine.

He remained an active coach with the AL New York team, the Seattle Mariners & Tampa Devil Rays. He also worked in player development in the 2000s.

Honors: When baseball came back to Washington D.C. with the Nationals, the Big Man was honored again, and regularly appears at baseball functions in the area. He also is involved with a lot of charity work at children’s hospitals in the D.C. area.

In 2014 he threw out the ceremonial first pitch at the NLDS vs the St. Louis Cardinals.

          Republicans promote fear, not tax cuts, in key elections      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
WASHINGTON – There's a border crisis in Pennsylvania. The radical left is surging in New Jersey. And Nancy Pelosi is a threat to New York.

Republican candidates in the nation's premiere midterm battlegrounds have embraced a central message in their fight to maintain the House majority this fall – and it has little to do with the surging economy or the sweeping tax cuts that the GOP celebrated as a once-in-a-generation achievement just eight months ago.

Instead, as Republicans enter the final month of the primary season, they're looking ahead to a general-election strategy of embracing anxiety as a tool to motivate voters. That was clear this week as the GOP's closing message in an Ohio special election questioned Democrat Danny O'Connor's connection to Pelosi, the House Democratic leader and preferred super villain for Republicans.

"We wish it got the pitch forks out and it doesn't," GOP ad maker Will Ritter said of the Republican tax cuts.

Some Republican strategists are frustrated the party isn't focused on the tax law or the broader health of the economy in the run-up to Election Day. Others concede that in the Trump era, there's no better motivator than fear of the other side, particularly the prospect of Pelosi returning to the speaker's chair.

The plan had some success in Ohio: The race was too close to call Wednesday as Republican Troy Balderson maintained a razor-thin advantage over O'Connor, staving off an embarrassing GOP debate for now. Going forward, the debate over highlighting the tax law will help determine whether Republicans will maintain control of Capitol Hill after November.

While Republicans are reluctant to engage on tax cuts, it's a fight Democrats – and their voters – want.

"The tax cuts were for the top ... income earners," said George Stringer, a 58-year-old Democrat who lives in Detroit. "The rich keep getting richer, the poor keep getting poorer."

In Ohio, which hosted the season's final special election, O'Connor railed against the tax cuts as a giveaway to the rich that threatened Medicare and Social Security. While his Republican opponent may prevail, the 31-year-old Democrat trailed by less than 1 percentage point in a district that's been in Republican hands since before he was born. On the defensive, Balderson appeared in a late ad sitting next to his ailing mother and promising that he wouldn't dismantle the social safety net.

It's somewhat similar to the problems Democrats faced in 2010, when they controlled the White House and Congress and managed to pass the most significant health care legislation since the creation of Medicare and Medicaid. They celebrated with President Barack Obama in the Rose Garden, only to run from it in the midterm elections that became a disaster for the party.

President Donald Trump, plagued by scandal and wed to his Twitter account, sits atop the struggle.

Republican pollster Frank Luntz said Trump energizes the Republican base, but that his broadsides and distractions will also alienate the swing voters who tip battleground House districts.

"This is political malpractice," he said. "You can't find me a time in modern times when the economy was this strong and the governing party was headed toward a potential political disaster like this."

Republicans are also reluctant to embrace their tax cuts because the benefits don't change the household budget for many Americans. The party predicts that will change next year when families file their first tax returns under the new law. But as electoral strategy, that's akin to Democrats in 2010 insisting voters would like the health care law once they understood it.

The tax debate comes amid new evidence of a Democratic surge in early elections across America.

Michigan Democrats will feature the state's first all-female statewide ticket this November following Tuesday's primary elections. Democrat Rashida Tlaib also won a race to run unopposed for the Detroit-area House seat vacated by John Conyers, making her poised to become the first Muslim woman in Congress. In Kansas, 38-year-old attorney Sharice Davids won her congressional primary and became the state's first Native American and gay nominee for Congress.

Both Davids and Tlaib campaigned aggressively against the Republican tax cuts.

Beyond avoiding the tax law, there has been a consistent theme for Republicans across House battlegrounds: casting the Democrat as too liberal.

A National Republican Congressional Committee ad in Ohio tied Democratic candidate O'Connor to Pelosi and "the liberal resistance movement." A super PAC backed by House Speaker Paul Ryan charged that it was O'Connor who would cut Social Security and Medicare by $800 billion; fact checkers have questioned the accuracy of the attack.

In central Kentucky, GOP Rep. Andy Barr is reminding voters that Amy McGrath, a former fighter pilot, voted for President Barack Obama and opposes Trump's proposed border wall. In suburban Pennsylvania, vulnerable Republican Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick has warned of "a border in crisis" and demanded a surge of immigration enforcement agents. And in New Jersey, Republican Rep. Leonard Lance featured an ad in which Democrat opponent Tom Malinowski calls himself a "lifelong progressive Democrat" over and over. Lance also warns of his "dangerous policies" like abolishing U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Anthony Brindisi, Democratic nominee in an upstate New York district, is the target of an ad from Rep. Claudia Tenney claiming that Pelosi is "bankrolling" Brindisi "because he'll support their radical immigration agenda."

Brindisi blasted the Tenney ad as dishonest, repeating his general support for border security and opposition to Pelosi continuing as Democratic leader. "I'd think after almost two years of being in Congress, the first advertisement that my opponent would run would be something about her accomplishments," Brindisi said.

He's running his own tax ad, localizing the law by highlighting Tenney's campaign support from the cable giant Charter, whose New York subsidiary, Spectrum, has raised rates and spent hundreds of millions on stock buybacks after getting a tax windfall. "I want to point out to the voters that when we talk about the swamp, this is the worst kind of example," Brindisi told The Associated Press.

Republicans aren't apologizing for their tax votes, even if it's not at the forefront of their campaigns.

Rep. Mimi Walters, a vulnerable Republican in southern California, said in a recent interview that she plans to use it in her paid advertising this fall. But her ads so far this year have focused on other topics.

"In the beginning ... there was a lot of pushback. That's just natural. You're making a big change, and people weren't sure," said Walters, who represents one of 25 districts nationally that sent a Republican to the House in 2016 but opted for Hillary Clinton over Trump in the presidential race.

"Now that people have started to see the benefits ... people come up and thank me," Walters said, adding that she's "results oriented" and pointing to economic growth figures that she says prove "we made the right decision."

webRNS School Drives5 080218OKLAHOMA CITY (RNS) — Christy Watson, communications director for the Oklahoma State School Boards Association, said she has noticed a definite uptick in engagement between houses of worship and public schools throughout Oklahoma. Since much of the activity occurs at the grassroots level, though, it’s difficult to quantify, Watson said.

OKLAHOMA CITY (RNS) — On a recent weekend, Pamela Jennings brought her 7-year-old granddaughter, Amara, and 4-year-old grandson, Trend, to People’s Church, an evangelical congregation. But though Jennings is a Christian, the family didn’t come for worship.

Instead, they were drawn by the church’s Day of Hope — an annual Saturday event where volunteers give away 3,200 backpacks filled with school supplies and offer free services such as medical exams and haircuts.

“It’s just awesome because some people really can’t afford to get school supplies or get a haircut,” Jennings said. “This is a real blessing for a lot of people.”

Christy Watson, communications director for the Oklahoma State School Boards Association, said she has noticed a definite uptick in engagement between houses of worship and public schools throughout Oklahoma. Since much of the activity occurs at the grassroots level, though, it’s difficult to quantify, Watson said.

Houses of worship and schools “are both places people turn to and gather at in times of celebration and need,” she said. “So it makes a lot of sense that they would join forces to serve their communities.”

The Oklahoma State School Boards Association gives an annual award for outstanding community partners, and each year, school districts nominate faith groups, Watson said.

RNS photo by Bobby Ross Jr.Emmaus Baptist Church, in the Oklahoma City suburb of Moore, has received the award. The Southern Baptist congregation not only buys school supplies and provides mentors for students, Watson noted. It also served as a temporary school location for an entire year after a tornado devastated the community.

“I don’t have any baseline data, so I’m reluctant to claim there is a trend of any sort,” said Lallie Lloyd, director of All Our Children, a national network that promotes church-school partnerships as a way to address social justice. “However, our organization was formed because we noticed that these ministries were emerging.”

Lloyd, whose organization is affiliated with the Episcopal Church, said church-school partnerships typically have two purposes. “One is to provide direct services to the children … and that’s where the school supplies would come in,” she said.

“But the second purpose, and really the motivating aspiration and dream behind All Our Children, is taking a more systemic approach to the realities of educational inequity.”

Photo by Kemberly Groue/U.S. Air Force/Creative CommonsAccording to the National Retail Federation, families with children in elementary through high school will spend an average of $684.79 on back-to-school shopping this year.

But for the poor, buying crayons and pencils, much less shoes and jackets, can be a major financial burden, which has inspired many houses of worship nationwide to get involved, said leaders of faith groups doing back-to-school work.

“Islam teaches that you cannot just sleep at night if your neighbor is hungry next door,” said Wassalam Shahid Farooqi, national coordinator for Islamic Circle of North America's back-to-school drive. That principle applies to children who need school supplies, Farooqi said.

This year, the ICNA drive is distributing 50,000 backpacks in 34 states. Both numbers have increased every year since the project’s launch six years ago, he said. The Northridge, Calif., mosque is among the participants.

Sandi Matz, co-president of the National Council of Jewish Women in Southfield, Mich., said her organization aims to help women, children and families.

Before school starts, the group will welcome 600 Detroit schoolchildren to a shopping spree, Matz said. “They will come and shop — but they don’t pay — for a complete set of clothing, jacket, hats, mittens, pants, shirt, shoes, underwear and a backpack that will be filled with supplies and a book.”

Some of the children never have owned a new pair of socks and light up at how soft they feel, she said, “just like you gave them the biggest candy bar in the world.”

School supplies, haircuts, medical exams, entertainment and more were available for free at the event.

School supplies, haircuts, medical exams, entertainment and more were available for free at the event. RNS photo by Bobby Ross Jr.Andy Wynn, People’s Church’s director of communications, said it’s easy to forget how costly a new school year can be.

“You’ve got to get new clothes for your kids. You’ve got to get school supplies, immunizations, haircuts, shoes and things of that nature,” Wynn said. “So when you multiply that across having four or five kids, and maybe being a single parent and having only one job, it can really add up to where it’s not possible.”

In addition to school supplies, People’s Church regularly dispatches remodeling, painting and landscaping crews to public school buildings.

“It’s just another part of being part of the community … and just showing the love of Christ,” Wynn said.

At Day of Hope, bounce houses and “Veggie Tales” screenings on big screens welcomed children and parents. Volunteers wore bright red T-shirts with the message “How may I serve you?” on the front.

Member Keyona Thompson’s 3-year-old grandson, Isaac, was helping stuff the backpacks.

Thompson said she was motivated to volunteer “by that one smile, that one parent that’s struggling, that one kid that any other day wouldn’t be able to have any type of supplies.”

A fellow volunteer, La Keena Carter, agreed. “The community needs to know the church is there for them, no matter what the situation, that there’s always going to be an open door.”


          Rashida Tlaib, Wanita Muslim Pertama dalam Sejarah Anggota Kongres AS      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Liputan6.com, Washington DC - Mantan perwakilan negara bagian Michigan, Rashida Tlaib, akan menjadi wanita muslim pertama di Amerika Serikat (AS) yang terpilih sebagai anggota Kongres, setelah dia memenangi jajak pendapat Demokrat dalam mid term election atau pemilihan anggota Kongres tengah periode untuk mewakili distrik 13 di daerah asalnya.

Bertarung di medan penuh kandidat yang berlomba-lomba menggantikan John Conyers Jr, yang bertugas sejak 1965 hingga pensiun tahun lalu, menyusul klaim pelecehan seksual, Tlaib berhasil meraih 33,6 persen suara pada kampanye akar rumput yang kuat, di mana ia turut mengumpulkan lebih dari US$ 1 juta, atau setara Rp 14,4 miliar.

Dikutip dari Independent.co.uk pada Kamis (9/8/2018), tidak ada kandidat Partai Republik yang bertarung di kursi tersebut, sehingga Tlaib memasuki Kongres tanpa perlawanan berarti pada pemilihan khusus, 6 November mendatang, ketika dia akan secara resmi menggantikan Conyers.

Pesaing terdekat sang wanita muslim adalah Ketua Dewan Detroit, Brenda Jones, yang meskipun mendapat pengakuan nama yang lebih luas dan beberapa dukungan terkemuka, hanya mampu meraih 28,5 persen suara.

Tlaib, putri dari keluarga imigran Palestina, lahir di Detroit pada 1976, di mana ayahnya bekerja di perusahaan otomotif Ford. Dia belajar politik di Wayne State University dan kemudian melanjutkan ke jenjang pascasarjana di bidang hukum hingga lulus pada 2004.

Pada Selasa malam, dia mengatakan bahwa harinya telah penuh dengan perasaan emosial, yang digambarkannya kepada The Detroit News sebagai "kekacauan bahagia".

"Terutama bertemu pemilih dan berbicara dengan mereka, yang mengaku merasa terinspirasi," katanya sebelum jajak pendapat publik ditutup.

"Seorang penduduk mengatakan dia senang saya berani maju, dan mereka terang-terangan akan memilih saya. Sungguh menakjubkan berinteraksi dengan banyak keluarga di lokasi jajak pendapat. Saya merasa sangat didukung," lanjut kandidat wanita muslim  yang tengah menjadi sorotan publik AS itu.

Distrik Kongres ke-13 yang akan diwakilinya mencakup wilayah selatan Detroit di daerah Wayne County. Setelah garis batas diatur ulang pada 2012, Distrik 13 adalah satu-satunya wilayah kongres yang sepenuhnya berada dalam satu wilayah.

Kemenangan Tlaib terjadi di tengah apa yang dianggap sebagai peningkatan besar pada isu Islamophobia di seluruh AS, setelah pemilihan Donald Trump pada 2016, yang kemudian berkaitan dengan permusahan terhadap problematika imigrasi.

          Justiça decreta indisponibilidade de bens do deputado Nelter Queiroz e de servidora "fantasma"      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

ICÉM CARAÚBAS | GIDEL DE MORAIS | 08 DE AGOSTO DE 2018 -17:00HS



O Ministério Público do Rio Grande do Norte (MPRN) conseguiu que a Justiça potiguar decretasse a  indisponibilidade de bens do deputado Nelter Lula Queiroz e de uma servidora "fantasma" da Assembleia Legislativa, Kadydja Rosely, até o valor de R$ 1.018.825,71. A determinação do desembargador  Ibanez Monteiro reforma decisão anterior de primeira instância, que tinha sido proferida pela 4ª vara da Fazenda Pública de Natal e atende a um recurso interposto pelo MPRN. 


O Ministério Público ajuizou ação civil pública de responsabilização por atos de improbidade administrativa para apurar a prática de atos atribuídos aos réus de 2005 até a presente data. Na ação, o MPRN apontou que a dupla desviou recursos dos cofres da Assembleia por meio do “cheque salário” e transferências bancárias destinados a servidores inseridos fraudulentamente na folha de pagamento. O objetivo era obter vantagem de cunho patrimonial em benefício próprio e de terceiros. 

Ambos se beneficiaram da utilização da figura fraudulenta e conhecida popularmente como “funcionário fantasma”, ou seja, aquele que apesar de receber a remuneração, não trabalha ou o faz apenas de maneira parcial, eventual ou esporadicamente. A consequência é enriquecimento ilícito e causando dano ao erário, bem como a violação a princípios constitucionais da moralidade, da impessoalidade e da eficiência. 

Kadydja Rosely, que constava na folha de pagamento da AL, segundo apurou o MPRN, residia a 3.755 km de Natal, em Foz do Iguaçu (PR), onde possuía vínculo formal de trabalho com a Associação Educacional Iguaçu desde 2009 (entre diferentes outros vínculos de trabalho) e registro junto ao Conselho Regional de Psicologia do Paraná desde agosto de 2005 – além de ter casado com pessoa nascida e domiciliada na cidade paranaense. 

Tal condição torna impossível a prestação de serviço como analista legislativa junto à AL, cargo efetivo ocupado por ela desde 1998 e cuja última remuneração foi no valor de R$ 14.832,77. Após diversas diligências investigatórias, mediante requisições de documentos, pesquisas em bancos de dados e escuta de testemunhas, com a finalidade de angariar elementos que pudessem esclarecer a verdadeira situação funcional de Kadydja Rosely, restou demonstrado invariavelmenelternte que ela jamais prestou qualquer tipo de serviço à AL. 

A demandada, inclusive, pediu desligamento da faculdade em que dava aula (que integra a Associação Educacional Iguaçu) em março de 2016, um mês após a disponibilização dos nomes dos servidores da AL no seu portal da transparência. 

Nesse sentido, o deputado estadual Nelter Queiroz foi o responsável pela manutenção de Kadydja Rosely na relação de pagamento da casa legislativa, para o recebimento de remuneração sem que existisse qualquer contraprestação. Vale dizer que era de seu inteiro conhecimento a condição de “fantasma” da demandada, pois a servidora era lotada em seu gabinete. A gravidade da conduta evidencia-se quando o deputado, em documento anexado aos autos, informa que a servidora cumpria expediente regular no setor de lotação. 

Para o MPRN, toda essa construção demonstra a má intenção e a finalidade de favorecimento, mediante a utilização de recursos públicos para “presentear” determinadas pessoas, afastando-se total e indisfarçadamente do interesse público, sendo as atribuições do cargo de deputado estadual empregadas para satisfazer interesse integralmente particular.

Not much happens in the tiny Detroit suburb of Pleasant Ridge, Michigan -- I would know, because I grew up there. But last spring, an unlikely visitor came to town: a mother deer who was pregnant with a fawn. People were surprised that the mother deer would choose Pleasant Ridge, because the town is wedged between Woodward Avenue and 10 Mile Road, both busy streets. After giving birth, fears for the safety of the deer were realized. The mother deer was killed by a car on Woodward, leaving behind her fawn, now known as "Baby." People in Pleasant Ridge wanted to be sure that the same cruel fate wouldn't befall Baby, so they began taking care of her.

          Angelinos vence a Tigres; Pujols dispara cuadrangular 632       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

ANAHEIM, California. Justin Upton y Albert Pujols conectaron jonrones consecutivos en la quinta entrada y los Angelinos de Los Ángeles completaron la barrida en la serie de tres juegos al vencer el miércoles 6-0 a los Tigres de Detroit.

Albert Pujols tiene 999 hits de carrera con los Angelinos y cuadrangular 632 de por vida. Su próximo imparable lo haría 1 de 9 jugadores en la historia de MLB con 1,000+ hits en ambos la Liga Nacional y Americana.

Kole Calhoun abrió el juego con un cuadrangular y el novato panameño Jaime Barria (7-7) permitió cinco imparables en cinco innings y dos tercios de labor por los Angelinos. Los Ángeles había perdido seis de siete antes de regresar a .500 en la serie ante los Tigres, que anotó solo ocho carreras durante su gira con California, que culminaron con marca de 0-6.

Upton disparó jonrón de dos carreras en cuenta llena ante Blaine Hardy (4-4) y de inmediato le siguió Pujols con el vuelacercas 632 de su carrera.

Hardy admitió siete hits en cinco innings por los Tigres, que han perdido 21 de sus últimos 26 juegos fuera de casa.

Los Tigres fueron blanqueados por tercera vez en su gira. Anotaron cinco de sus ocho carreras, en 58 innings, en la derrota del martes 11-5 ante los Angelinos.

Mike Trout se ausentó por séptimo juego consecutivo con molestias en la muñeca derecha, pero los Angelinos esperan que el dos veces ganador del premio a Jugador Más Valioso pueda reaparecer este fin de semana contra Oakland.

Por los Angelinos, los dominicanos Albert Pujols de 4-1 con una impulsada y dos anotadas; Jefry Marte de 4-2 con una remolcada y una anotada. El venezolano Juan Briceño de 3-1 con una impulsada.

Por los Tigres, el cubano José Iglesias, el dominicano Jeimer Candelario y el venezolano Víctor Martínez de 4-1 cada uno.

C8 Corvette
How we think the next-generation Corvette could look
Hardcore hybrid will be used for C8 version of America’s iconic sports car, due in 2019

The eighth-generation Chevrolet Corvette will switch to a mid-engined layout for the first time in the model’s history.

Recent photographs of a test mule confirm years of rumours that the next generation of America’s sports car, due on sale in late 2019, will undergo the most radical change in the car’s 65-year history.

In a further break with tradition, the new Corvette, known by its C8 model code, will be sold alongside a version of the current car. Sources inside General Motors, which owns the Chevrolet brand, indicate that we can expect a slightly revised version of the existing C7 as an entry-level alternative. Although the C8 will carry a price premium over its front-engined sibling, it will be sold at a price that significantly undercuts the junior supercars offered by other manufacturers.

Corvette C7 review

There will be no surprise in the choice of launch powerplant, with the C8 set to reach the market using a developed version of General Motor’s current LT-spec 6.2-litre V8. Although this engine still uses pushrods, and will be unable to match the low-down torque of turbocharged alternatives, the all-alloy unit has many virtues: it is light, responsive, relatively cheap to build and able to generate around 500bhp with little work.

It also gives a clear connection between the radical new car and the front-engined Corvette that will continue in production. This could be advantageous given the existing car has an older and more conservative buying profile than other sports cars in the US.

Punchier powerplants are a certainty, however — especially given GM’s history of offering faster variants soon after the launch of a base car.

Media in the US have reported that these will include a newly developed overhead camshaft V8, set to be sold in both naturally aspirated and twin-turbo forms, the latter sure to produce at least as much as the 745bhp of the current supercharged Corvette ZR1. Beyond that, a hybrid version will add an electrically powered front axle to the mix, potentially giving a total system output approaching 1000bhp.

Gallery: Corvette Sting Ray - America's greatest sports car?

Another big change will be a new twin-clutch transaxle gearbox, developed by transmission supplier Tremec and effectively removing the option of a conventional manual version — a significant shift given the relatively high percentage of current Corvettes that are still sold with a clutch pedal.

Like its rivals from Ferrari, Lamborghini and McLaren, the new Corvette will display its mid-mounted engine through a glass cover.

Other parts of the design remain a closely guarded secret for now; the test mule gives little away beyond the need for significant cooling at the front of the car. Despite GM’s sale of its European operations to the PSA Group last year, the new car is being developed with significant use of the Nürburgring Nordschleife and we can expect the sort of aggressive aerodynamics necessary for good high-speed performance there, possibly including active elements.

But while the C8 will no doubt be extremely fast, the need to keep costs down means that the use of expensive materials will be limited. The chassis is believed to be an aluminium spaceframe, and it will have the glassfibre bodywork that has been used by every previous generation. Carbon brakes are certain to be available, but the new Corvette is likely to stick to a base specification of cast-iron discs for the same reason.While the C7 Corvette has a ‘targa’ roof with removable panels, it seems likely that the C8 will shift to a more conventional split between coupé and a convertible, the latter to follow at a later date.

The finished car will be shown in the US early next year, although it is understood that it won’t be at the Detroit motor show. Sales will begin in the US in the autumn, with a base price under $100,000 (£75,000 at current exchange rates).

There is no confirmation of right-hand-drive production, which would seem like a long shot despite the success that the Ford Mustang has enjoyed in the UK and Australia.

A US source said that the loss of Vauxhall and Opel has not made a significant difference in the case for European sales, with the C6 and C7 Corvettes both sold on this side of the Atlantic through non-GM channels, albeit in tiny volumes.

The IWA was the first wrestling promotion to have a television program nationwide. Promoters Eddie Eihorn and Pedro Martinez put together a huge talent pool that would provide a national and international promotion with more stars than any other promotion had ever done. The list of stars in this first of many to come DVD series is like a who's who of the 1970's wrestling superstars. The IWA spared no expense to give the fans only the best. Jack Reynolds was a well noted and household name for his coverage of professional wrestling. Tex McKenzie not only wrestled, but also filled in as the color analyst. Ring announcing was handled by Rick Martin, who in real life was son of promoter, Pedro Martinez, his given name was Ronnie Martinez. They all provided professional insight and knowledge of the king of sports, professional wrestling. Not that Big Time Wrestling from Detroit had to take any back seats.

Featured here are a few of the Big Time Wrestling moments with the wisdom of Veteran mic man Chuck Allen and his partner Terry Sullivan filling us in on the action and shows coming up and the latest news. But the bonus here is the Memphis match that features the silver tongue, Lance Russell. Russell was like a good friend telling you always what was on his mind.

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

          Election System Failures and Reported Results in KS, MO, MI, WA, OH-12: 'BradCast' 8/8/2018      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Also: Rep. Chris Collins (R-NY-Trump) indicted for insider trading...

On today's BradCast: The Election Administrator's (and Election Integrity journalist's) Prayer was decidedly not answered on Tuesday, based on reported results in at least two key races, and problems in the four states (Kansas, Missouri, Michigan and Washington) which held midterm primaries and the one (Ohio) which held the final major U.S. House Special Election of the year. [Audio link to complete show is posted below.]

But, first up today, Republican Congressman Chris Collins of New York, the first sitting member of Congress to endorse Donald Trump's candidacy, was indicted Wednesday morning, along with his son and the father of his son's fiancee, for an insider trading scheme, after he had tipped off his son to failed testing for a multiple sclerosis treatment by an Australian company in which Collins was the top shareholder and a member of its board. According to the indictment by the Trump-appointed U.S. Attorney in Manhattan, it sure looks like they've caught Collins red-handed. Though he vows to fight the charges and remain on the ballot this November, his once-safe seat is now believed to be in danger.

Then, onto yesterday's Election Day and the very long night that followed.

In the OH-12 special election, Democrat Danny O'Connor trails Republican Troy Balderson by about 1,700 votes out of some 200,000 cast, mostly on 100% unverifiable touch-screen systems across seven Ohio counties. About 3,500 uncounted provisional and late vote-by-mail ballots could change the outcome in the days ahead, or at least lead to a state-mandated "recount" in the district that, for decades -- until Tuesday -- had been solidly "red".  In 2016, Trump carried the district by 11 points and the now-resigned House GOP incumbent had carried it by 36 points. That has clearly changed with a virtual dead heat contest on Tuesday, leading to growing confidence in a "blue wave" this November by many Democrats and, yes, a "RED WAVE" in the same crucial midterms, as predicted today by Donald Trump.

In Detroit, where voters cast hand-marked paper ballots, they were able to continue voting even during power outages at more than a dozen polling places on Tuesday, following storms the night before.  We have results from MICHIGAN's closely-watched Gubernatorial primaries and the somewhat bizarre, two separate Democratic primary races (one normal, one special) to fill the U.S. House seat left vacant last year by Rep. John Conyers resignation. State Dems will now host an historic, all-female slate at the top of the ticket for Governor, U.S. Senator, Attorney General and Sec. of State, and Rashida Tlaib will become the first Muslim woman in Congress.

In KANSAS, $10 million wasted on new, unverifiable touch-screen voting systems didn't help voters as some of the brand new ES&S ExpressVote ballot marking devices failed to work at all on Tuesday morning, and electronic tabulation grounded to a halt all together in Johnson County, the state's most populous, due to a problem that remains unclear at this hour.  All of it resulted in another "too close to call" race today, in the GOP's gubernatorial primary between current Gov. Jeff Colyer and the controversial Trump-endorsed Sec. of State Kris Kobach. He leads, according to unverifiable touch-screen results finally reported on Wednesday morning, by just 191 votes(!) out of some 300,000 cast. A "recount" (overseen by Kobach himself) almost certainly awaits, as do future failures on the ExpressVote systems which produce unverifiable barcoded "paper trails" instead of hand-marked paper ballots. Sadly, the same systems are also being adopted by many other jurisdictions around the country as well.

In MISSOURI, a few Republicans came up with a novel new way to stop voters from voting. But that didn't deter the state which voted for Trump by double digits in 2016 from soundly rejecting a GOP anti-union (so-called "Right-to-Work") measure by a 2 to 1 margin. And, in St. Louis County, in a triumph of democracy, Bill McCulloch, the 7-term Democratic prosecutor who failed to bring charges in the 2014 police killing of Ferguson's Michael Brown, was defeated by Wesley Bell, one of the African-American leaders of the 2014 protests there. Bell had become a City Council member in Ferguson in 2015 and he will now be St. Louis County's Prosecuting Attorney.

And finally today, in WASHINGTON state, results of several U.S. House primaries suggest incumbent Republicans previously thought to be in safe "red" districts -- including Cathy McMorris Rodgers, the highest ranking female in Congress -- may not be quite as safe in this November's midterms as they had thought...

          Tuesday’s primaries—what to watch for in Ohio and elsewhere      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

There are four primary elections, of various significance, scheduled for tomorrow night. While in a win in the special election for Ohio’s 12th district is both important and plausible, post-election analysis of the deeper trends will tell us more about what will happen in November.

In a previous post, we mentioned that Ohio’s 12th Congressional District is even more favorable towards Republican candidates than it was during the tenures of John Kasich and Pat Tiberi.

When the Republican Governor and state legislature gerrymandered the 12th District, Delaware County was expected to dilute the Democratic trend in Franklin County (Columbus). But as a result of Donald Trump and the demographic and cultural changes, it appears that Delaware is on its way to politically melding with Franklin as a suburban enclave—potentially neutralizing the gains Trump has made in Licking County and the rural segments of the 12th District. The Franklin and Delaware suburbs reflect the kind of district Democrats must win in November in order to gain control of the House. Conversely, while not ignoring Licking and the old manufacturing cities of Newark and Mansfield (Richland County), 60 percent or more of tomorrow’s vote will be accounted for in Franklin and Delaware counties.

The last statewide Democratic candidate to win Delaware County was Ted Strickland, when he was elected Governor in 2006. But Delaware is the fastest growing county in Ohio, and contains a far different demographic mix than was discernible in 2006. Strickland won 51.2 percent of the major party vote there. If Danny O’Connor, the Democratic candidate, wins tomorrow night, he may have to amass an even higher percentage in Delaware County than did Strickland, who won 57 percent of the vote district-wide.

This is not to understate the importance of the share of the vote that will come from Franklin County and the city of Columbus. To win tomorrow night, O’Connor needs a margin of more than 20 percent in Franklin, along with a vote share of 34 percent or higher. In Columbus which we expect will account for at least 14 percent of the total votes cast, O’Connor needs to win by a margin of 30 percent or more. Again, these are prototypical of the battleground terrain in the midterm election in November.

Licking County (which we expect will account for 20 percent or more of the total vote share) has always been a Republican leaning area. It is a more middle-class and blue-collar area in which Trump won by more than 30 percent in 2016. O’Connor will not win Licking County, but if he can narrow the margin to 20 or 15 percent (rather than 30 percent) of the major party vote, he would potentially clinch a district-wide plurality. Mansfield, a blue-collar, formerly-Democratic leaning old manufacturing city in Richland County swung to Trump in 2016, also deserves closer attention

What to watch for in tomorrow’s other primary elections

Kansas

If militant conservative Kris Kobach defeats Republican Governor Jeff Colyer tomorrow, a Democrat would stand a good chance of winning the general election. Moreover, two congressional races critical to Democratic midterm aspirations will be decided tomorrow night. In the 2nd Congressional District (Topeka area) former State House Minority Leader Paul Davis, who won a plurality of the district vote in his unsuccessful gubernatorial race, will be the Democratic nominee. There are several Republican candidates and Steve Watkins is the narrow favorite to win.

Even more attention will be focused on the 3rd District (Kansas City area) currently represented by Republican Kevin Yoder. Among the Democrats competing for the chance to unseat Yoder are Sharice Davids, an attorney who overcame enormous personal obstacles to be in this position; Brent Welder, a former Bernie Sanders campaign official; and Tom Niermann, a teacher who is signaling that he is the moderate candidate in this race. With one of the highest levels of educational attainment in the nation, the 3rd District mirrors how Democrats have made gains in Congress over the past election cycles. Winning both of these elections in the fall is critical to Democratic fortunes. Davis, Niermann and 2016 candidate Jay Sidie are all stronger general election candidates, but Welder may be the slight favorite tomorrow night.

Michigan

Michigan’s 8th Congressional District, an area that is more exurban than suburban, seems poised to nominate former Acting Assistant Secretary of Defense Elissa Slotkin as the Democratic nominee, who will oppose Republican incumbent Mike Bishop in the fall.

In the heavily suburban 11th District, located in the wealthy Detroit suburbs, moderate Republican Dave Trott is not running for reelection. Accordingly, both parties are holding competitive primaries. Trending Democratic, this race is as toss up in the fall.

Missouri

Democratic incumbent Lacy Clay is being challenged by progressive activist Cori Bush, a strong challenger in the 1st District (St. Louis area) who might unseat Clay.

In the 2nd district (suburban St. Louis), veteran Mark Osmack and attorney Cort VanOstran vie for the nomination. The winner will face Republican incumbent Ann Wagner, who is the favorite this fall. Still, a potential Democratic wave is as threat to Republican-held competitive suburban district.

Washington

In the 8th Congressional District, vacated by Republican Dave Reichert, three strong Democratic challengers lead the field. The winner will likely face state Senator Dino Rossi in November. This race is a toss-up and the district is more middle-class and culturally neutral than the booming Seattle suburbs.

We will post an analysis of the implications of these primaries on Wednesday.

The National Committee for an Effective Congress has been working to elect progressive Democrats for nearly 70 years, and the push to counter Donald Trump and his right-wing allies has already begun.

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

The Iraq War may be officially over, but for thousands of Iraqis who fled to America during the conflict, there's no going home. Many left successful careers to settle in Detroit, where finding their future is a challenge. The U.N. estimates several million Iraqis are now refugees — either inside Iraq or outside the country. Almost 60,000 of them have come to the Detroit metro area since 2006, drawn by the large Arab community that's been there for years. "There are mosques, schools, churches and neighbors," says Rifat Ita, a counselor with Lutheran Social Services of Michigan, one of four resettlement groups in Michigan. "We have the infrastructure to help new arrivals." But what Michigan does not have is enough jobs to meet demand for anyone, let alone this group. That falls harshly on refugees, particularly the professional class, which is often middle-aged and older.

          Aaron Rodgers Says...'Relax?'      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The Green Bay Packers return home this weekend for a game against the Detroit Lions. The game couldn’t come at a better time for the Packers who just lost two road games in a row, and in convincing fashion. There’s more than a little angst in Packer Nation at the moment, and sports contributor Howie Magner thinks it may be a bit of an over-reaction from fans. "Suddenly, people are wondering if they are going to make the playoffs, or if they need to fire everybody. Or whether they should trade Aaron Rodgers, which is all kind of silly," he says. Meanwhile, the Bucks have been "maybe slightly below average" as head coach Jason Kidd continues to see what works best for the players, both old and new. "The goal this year is not to win an NBA Championship, the goal is to see the younger players continue to improve and continue to foster the core," says Magner. Magner comments more on the Packers season, and a better look at the Milwaukee Bucks and Marquette Golden Eagles as they start their

Next player prediction is Tyler Bertuzzi! Bertuzzi had an excellent second half, where he combined grit, determination and skill to win puck battles, cause turnovers and make plays. He gets under your skin, he's a feisty kid with a high-energy game. He thrived with the bigger minutes and I can see them only increasing (I see him slotting on the LW with Larkin and Zadina), and so will his points. He'd be the perfect compliment to that two-headed monster, basically forming a 3-headed monster. Bertuzzi is very good at creating line chemistry as well. He's a machine that never stops - Breakout Potential: 9.99999999/10 - Player Role: Top 6 F - Pre-season Player Grade (based on abilities): B+ - I'm going to be doing a season prediction for every player who I think will have a spot with the Wings this year. Next up is Athanasiou. This could be his massive breakout should Blashill give him the chance. He's fast, big and highly skilled. He needs more ice time, and why wouldn't he get it? He's also on a contract he wasn't forced into this year. I see him playing anywhere in the top 9, and on the power play. He's got great hands, such great skating ability and a ton of skill and upside. He still could become a real impact player on a nightly basis if Blashill gives him the time to grow, which it seems more likely he will. He could be traded, but I don't see that happening. He's poised for a big breakout season, he COULD flop but I can feel it, he's going to have a good year - Breakout Potential: 9 - Player Role: Top 6 Forward - Pre-season Player Grade (based only on abilities): B+ - #Bertuzzi #TylerBertuzzi #Detroit #RedWings #DetroitRedWings #LGRW #LGRW🐙 #🐙 #Hockeytown #NHL #Hockey #NHLHockey #FollowTrain #LikeTrain #Prediction #Hockey #Net #Stick #Puck #Arena

          NEW YORK -- Jonathan Quick watched plenty of New York Rangers games on television whi      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
NEW YORK -- Jonathan Quick watched plenty of New York Rangers games on television while growing up in nearby Milford, Conn. Alexei Kovalev Jersey ., but it was always a tough ticket to get into Madison Square Garden. Just once before he got on the ice at the age of 12 for an intermission pee-wee shootout, and then Monday night at the age of 28 the Los Angeles Kings goaltender made a much more memorable appearance. Quick shut out the Rangers 3-0 to put his team up three games to none in the Stanley Cup final and one victory away from a second title in three years. "You make one save and then you try to make the next," Quick said with little excitement in his voice after arguably his best performance in these playoffs. "We had a lot of guys that block shots, clear rebounds. Our (penalty kill) was very good tonight, possibly the difference in the game. You just make one save at a time and try to get ready for the next one." Of Quicks 32 saves, two of them stuck out. In the first period he got his stick on a shot by Mats Zuccarello that went off the post and was bound to deflect in, and in the second he extended his paddle to get a piece of Derick Brassards offering that couldve been just what the Rangers needed to get back into the game and perhaps the series. Quick couldnt remember what happened on either one. It was hard for anyone else to forget. "Hes one goalie that can save those kind of things," Kings defenceman Drew Doughty said. "Not to say that we expect those saves from him, but were so used to seeing them because they happen so often that its just normal business." After watching Quick win the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP during Los Angeless 2012 Cup run, Dustin Brown isnt even in awe anymore. The Kings captain used to look up at the video board to figure out just how the puck stayed out of the net, but now he doesnt even bother. "The best example is playing at the Olympics and seeing other guys react to it and Im just sitting there because Ive played with him long enough and hes made enough of those saves you kind of expect him to do it," Brown said. "Its not shocking by any means. Hes been doing this all playoffs." Quick hadnt been doing quite this in these playoffs. Monday night was just his second shutout in 24 games this post-season, but it was the ninth of his NHL career. His stats during this run -- a 2.80 goals-against average and .906 save percentage going into Monday -- were hardly dazzling, but teammates were eager to give him credit for what had transpired before his masterful Game 3 showing. "All I know is everyones talking about Quickie and hes a big, big part of the reason were here because he is a goaltender that makes big saves at big times," Brown said. Quick did need some help and got it with goals from Jeff Carter, Jake Muzzin and Mike Richards. Carters goal with 0.7 seconds left in the first period stunned the sellout crowd of 18,000-plus in the first Cup final game at the Garden in 20 years. Carters seemingly innocent flick of a shot deflected off the skate of diving Rangers defenceman Dan Girardi before going in off Henrik Lundqvists glove. "I was reacting low and it went high," Lundqvist said. "Its just one of those plays where, with a little luck there that puck ends up in the netting or the glass. Unfortunately, half a second left and it ended up in our net. It was a tough play." That goal marked the first lead for the Kings since Game 6 of the Western Conference final against the Chicago Blackhawks. Los Angeles came back from two-goal deficits to win Games 1 and 2 at Staples Center. "It was a little bit easier scoring first, obviously," centre Anze Kopitar said. "Scoring at 0.7 left the first takes a little bit of wind out of their sails and energizes us." A rash of high-sticking penalties by the Rangers early in the second period didnt help, and Marc Staals led to Muzzins power-play goal. With Martin St. Louis trying to get his body in front of Muzzins shot from the point, the puck instead went off the Rangers winger and past Lundqvist 4:17 into the second period. Fans tried to generate some noise off the face-off, and the Rangers followed with plenty of chances to get back into the game. The power-play unit that entered the night 1-for-8 in the series managed some sustained pressure but came up empty thanks to Quicks brilliance. New York finished 0-for-6 on the power play in Game 3. Asked what went wrong in general, coach Alain Vigneault answered only: "We couldnt score." When Lundqvist was asked what happened, the usually charming media darling fired back: "Better question." What happened in the second period was the Rangers fell behind 3-0 as Richards got a two-on-one with Trevor Lewis, banked his initial shot off Ryan McDonagh and buried his second to put the Kings in cruise control. Despite 15 multi-goal comebacks already in these playoffs, an NHL record, a three-goal deficit looked daunting even as the Rangers out-shot the Kings 32-15 overall because Quick appeared unbeatable. Ultimately, he was. "He was obviously the best player on the ice tonight," Vigneault said of Quick. "Give them credit. They found a way to put the puck past our real good goaltender and we couldnt do it." Marian Gaborik, playing his first game back at the Garden since the Rangers traded him to the Columbus Blue Jackets at the 2013 deadline, called Quick the Kings "cornerstone" Monday night. Doughty termed him their "backbone" all the time. Monday night was a reminder of that to anyone who forgot how good Quick can be at his best. "I dont think he has to remind us too many times," Kopitar said. "We know what hes capable of. Thats why we love having him back there." Twice in Game 3 he made saves that earn him that kind of love and admiration and a place on highlight reels. At the 12:37 mark of the first, Zuccarello had a no-doubt goal from just in front, but his shot hit the post and then Quicks before going wide. "It was an empty-net goal, and he got a piece of it," Brown said. "That allowed us to get our legs going and not fall behind early." Quicks most spectacular of the night came 10:22 into the second on Brassards offering from the side of the net. A cross ice pass forced Quick to go full extension, and with his paddle almost parallel to the ice he kept it out. "It looked from the bench like the guy just missed it, but you look at the replay and he gets a piece of it," Brown said. "He has a different style than all the other goalies in the league. Hes just quick and he gets post-to-post faster than any goalie in the whole entire league." Now one victory away from a second championship in three years, Quick isnt a strong Conn Smythe candidate this time around. But in dominating against the Rangers on Monday night, he put the Kings on the verge of recapturing the trophy they really care about. "Hes still been very sharp for us and hes been a huge key for our success without a doubt," Doughty said. "Maybe he didnt have to stand on his head like he did in 2012 but tonight I thought he stood on his head." NOTES -- Neither team made any lineup changes from Game 2, which meant that Kings defenceman Robyn Regehr missed his 16th straight game with injury. David LeNevu again served as the Rangers backup goalie with Cam Talbot (undisclosed) still out. ... A handful of celebrities were featured on the arenas video screens, including New York Knicks forward Amare Stoudemire, late-night TV host Jimmy Fallon and actors Bryan Cranston and Robert De Niro. That dampened the enthusiasm of a crowd that included more than a few people who paid a premium to attend. Tickets on the secondary market were going for over US$1,000. As their realistic chances of making it a series hung in the balance, the Rangers didnt put together a season-saving performance. After falling behind, New York picked up two straight high-sticking penalties that could have been worse had defenceman Marc Staal not gotten away with an extra one on Kings captain Dustin Brown. Staals offensive-zone high-sticking penalty that did get called led to the Kings second goal of the night. With Martin St. Louis trying to get his body in front of Muzzins shot from the point, the puck instead went off the Rangers winger and past Lundqvist 4:17 into the second period. Fans tried to generate some noise off the face-off, and the Rangers followed with plenty of chances to get back into the game. The power-play unit that entered the night 1-for-8 in the series managed some sustained pressure but came up empty thanks to Quicks brilliance. The 2012 Conn Smythe Trophy winners best save of Game 3 came just after a New York power play expired, when he got his stick on what should have been a gimme goal for Derick Brassard at the side of the net. While Quick made saves look easy, Lundqvist got a break. The Kings didnt manage a shot on net for more than nine minutes in the second period. When they got back on track, it didnt take long to suck the rest of the air out of the Garden. With Trevor Lewis accompanying him on a two-on-one rush, Richards took an initial shot that hit Rangers defenceman Ryan McDonagh, and the Kings forward buried the second offering to make it 3-0 at 17:14. A record 15 multi-goal comebacks have meant no lead is safe in these playoffs. But Quicks stellar play ensured this would not be the 16th.

PETERSBURG, Fla. http://www.canadiensauthority.com/authen...ns-jersey/ . And fellow Leaf, Jake Gardiner, hiking in Whistler.Tampa Bay Lightning forward Steven Stamkos continued towards his potential return on Friday, taking part in practice drills with light contact. While the 23-year-olds progress had some teammates saying he was looking pretty good, Stamkos offered a more tempered approach to his return. "I dont feel where I need to be in order to play a game yet, but its getting there," he told reporters after practice at the Bell Centre in Montreal. "Its nice to hear that the guys are saying that. Today I was in the corners a little more and getting bumped around (but) by no means was it full contact." Stamkos fractured the tibia in his right leg in a Nov. 11 game against the Boston Bruins and underwent surgery the following day. He returned to practice earlier than expected, leading each days progress to be closely monitored by Lightning fans as well as Canadians. Lightning general manager Steve Yzerman named Stamkos to Canadas 25-man roster for the coming Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia, but with Canadas first game just two weeks away, the clock is ticking on his hopes to be healthy in time. "You just have to listen to your body," Stamkos said. "Were talking a lot about the Olympics and my goal is to try to be ready for those Games, but your body doesnt lie. If youre doing certainn movements and you feel pain then thats an indicator that maybe its not quite ready. Mark Streit Jersey. . "It is tough mentally as well, going in there knowing that youre a little hesitant in certain areas. Ive said that before that thats what you dont want so you just try to overcome that as you progress and you take more contact in practice and hopefully that goes away." Stamkos scored 14 goals and 23 points in 17 for the Lightning this season prior to his injury. However, opportunities to get into game action before the Olympics are dwindling for the sniper. The Lightning have four games remaining before the NHL goes on break for the Games with the teams final game coming Feb. 8 against the Detroit Red Wings. While the Brampton, Ontario native wouldnt commit to a timeline, he acknowledged his progress thus far and expressed hope for it to continue over the next two weeks. "It has gotten better," he said. "Theres less and less pain every time I get on the ice but there is still a little discomfort. "Im hoping in the next week and a half, two weeks, that that feels a lot better and I can do certain movements without having that pain or at least with some pain thats manageable. Right now its still a little sharp in certain areas so thats what Im trying to improve."

CHICAGO - A series which once seemed firmly in the hands of the Los Angeles Kings has been stretched to the limit. Alonzo Mourning Jersey . Now the defending champion Chicago Blackhawks will try to complete a monumental comeback when they host the Kings in Sundays Game 7 battle at United Center. You can listen to all the action on TSN Radio 1050 beginning at 8pm et/5pm pt. The Kings grabbed a 3-1 lead in the Western Conference finals after Mondays 5-2 home victory, but Chicago has responded with two close victories to even this best-of-seven set at three games apiece. The winner of Sundays clash will meet the New York Rangers in the Stanley Cup Finals, after the Blueshirts eliminated Montreal in six games for the Eastern Conference title. Chicago, winner of two of the leagues last four Stanley Cup titles, first staved off elimination with a 5-4 double-overtime win Wednesday on home ice and did it again with Fridays 4-3 decision in Los Angeles. The Blackhawks hope to complete the comeback Sunday in the Windy City, where the club boasts an 8-1 record this postseason and a 19-3 mark since the start of the 2013 playoffs. The Blackhawks also hold a 13-0 mark after Game 4 in each of the past two postseasons and is seeking another successful comeback from down 3-1 after recording the first one in franchise history last spring. Chicago lost three of the first four games in last years conference semifinals against Detroit, but won the final three tilts and claimed Game 7 in overtime en route to winning its second Cup since 2010. If Chicago wins Sundays contest it will become just the second team in NHL history to overcome a 3-1 series deficit and win the conference finals. Only the 2000 New Jersey Devils, who beat Philadelphia, have overcome a 3-1 series deficit in a conference final and advanced to the fourth and final round. The Kings, meanwhile, hope to regroup Sunday and avoid being eliminated by Chicago in the West finals for a second straight year. Los Angeles, the 2012 Cup champions, fell in five games to the Blackhawks in 2013 and appeared well on its way towards exacting revenge for that loss before the last two games. With the Game 6 loss, L.A. became just the third team in NHL history to have its first three playoff series advance to a seventh game in one playoff year. The 1993 Toronto Maple Leafs and 2002 Colorado Avalanche previously saw each of their in-conference playoff matchups reach Game 7s, with the Leafs losing to the Kings and Avs to the Red Wings. "Weve got to win. There is no other option," Kings star defenseman Drew Doughty said of Game 7. "I think were going to have our best effort of the series next game. All of the guys are going to step up to the plate. Our leaders are going to lead the way. Everyone else is going to follow. Were going to have our best effort." The Kings, of course, were only the fourth team in NHL history to erase a 3-0 deficit to win a playoff series when they beat San Jose in the opening round and then came back from 3-2 down to eliminate Anaheim in seven games during the conference semis. Both of L.A.s previous Game 7 victories in this postseason also came on the road. "We know theyre a resilient group," Chicago forward Patrick Kane said after leading his team to the Game 6 triumph. "Theyve won two Game 7s on the road in their first two series. Its going to be a tough one. Right now were happy we got the win, but it doesnt mean anything because we havent won anything yet. Well get ready for the next one and we know theyll bring the best for Game 7." Kane, last springs Conn Smythe winner, has been a big part of Chicagos revival in this series, recording seven points over the last two games. After notching four assists in the Game 5 victory, Kane scored two goals and added an assist on Friday. Kane assisted on the tying goal in Game 6 and then netted the game-winning score late in the third period to force tonights winner-take-all battle. The speedy forward had been held without a point in the first three games of this series, but has amassed eight points (2G, 6A) over the last three contests. Ben Smith and Duncan Keith added Game 6 tallies for the Blackhawks, while Corey Crawford picked up the win thanks to 26 saves. Los Angeles scored the only goal of the first period before Chicago carried a 2-1 lead into the second intermission. The Kings then grabbed a 3-2 lead with a pair of goals in the first eight minutes of the third period before the Blackhawks mounted a comeback. "I dont think anyone lost confidence or got down after those two goals they scored in the third," Crawford said. "If anything we kept pressing even harder. Some great shots by Duncs and Kaner, some great plays, and we were able to shut then down at the end." Kanes slick pass on the left wing found Keith at the inner edge of the circle for a successful wrister to knot the game with 8:26 showing. Kane struck once more with 3:45 left in regulation. He trailed a Brandon Saad rush on the right wing, accepted a back pass, then moved from the circle into the middle and beat Jonathan Quick with a wrister to give the Blackhawks a 4-3 edge. "Its unbelievable, I looked at him, I think it was about a minute left, I think there was a stoppage of play and I almost started laughing," Toews said of Kane. "Its amazing what he can do in these big games, when our season is on the line and nobody else seems to be able to do it the same way he does it, its pretty amazing." Doughty, Dwight King and Alec Martinez scored for the Kings, while Quick stopped only 21 shots in defeat. Doughty has collected seven points (3G, 4A) in the last five games. The loss didnt deter Doughty from adding confidently: "Weve had two chances to close out this series and were not going to blow the third one." The Stanley Cup Finals will begin Wednesday night with the Rangers visiting the winner of Sundays Game 7 for the first two tests of the championship round. Custom Charlotte Hornets Jerseys .

Kemba Walker Jersey .com) - Sergio Agueros 63rd-minute goal was enough to lift Manchester City to a 1-0 win over 10-man Manchester United on Sunday at the Etihad Stadium. http://www.hornetsteamproshop.com/Cheap-...ts-Jersey/ . Tristan Jackson returned a missed field goal 129 yards early in the fourth quarter as the Roughriders beat the B.C.PARIS – Eugenie Bouchard grew up admiring Maria Sharapova. "First, I noticed her cute dresses and things like that when I was young," said the 20-year-old Canadian, who met Sharapova when she was just eight-years-old at a tournament in Miami. "As a child, I looked up to her and I remember watching her in the finals of Wimbledon and thought what she was doing was so cool and I wanted to do the same thing." Bouchard and Sharapova will play on Thursday in the French Open semi-finals. It is the second straight year that the two have met at Roland Garros with the Russian prevailing in straight sets in the second round a year ago. "For sure I respect her," said Bouchard. "But now were in the semis of a Grand Slam, so Im going to respect her but not put her too high on a pedestal and really just battle. Thats what its going to be." Sharapova may be seeded seventh, but she has been widely considered the favourite to win the title since the top three seeds – Serena Williams, Li Na and Agnieszka Radwanska – all lost in the first three rounds. And Sharapova is favoured to beat Bouchard (-325, 4/13 per BoDog) for the same reason she is expected to hoist the Coupe Suzanne Lenglen on Saturday: she has the experience. She made the finals here a year ago. She won the whole thing just two years ago. At the age of 27, she has already won the career slam and has an Olympic silver medal on her resume.  "Achieving what she has, she is of course very strong mentally," said Bouchard. "It is one of her strengths. Im going to be ready for another battle. You know, the semis of a Grand Slam, thats what you have to expect. "Im just looking forward to the challenge." Bouchard is earning her own reputation for poise under pressure. She overcame a 2-5 deficit (two breaks) and a set point to win the opening frame against clay-court specialist Carla Suarez Navarro in the quarterfinals on Tuesday. Then, after dropping the second set 2-6, Bouchard dug out of a 1-4 hole in the deciding set by winning 12 straight points. She then served to stay in the match at 4-5, holding easily.  "At the end of the day, whether I win or lose, I want to at least leave it all out there and try and at least battle. Charlotte Hornets Jerseys. Im proud of the way I did that in both the first and third. Shes a great player and a really good clay courter, as well. I knew it was a tough battle, and thats exactly what it was today. Im just proud of the way I stayed in there." Bouchard appeared to show some nerves after wasting a match point, serving at 6-5, with a double fault. She was asked if that was a sign she is, after all, human. "I show Im human all the time," Bouchard noted with a smile. "Yeah, you know, its one of those things. I didnt really worry about it. I think thats the most important thing: I didnt see it as a big deal, and I just regrouped for the next point, which allowed me to just give me a chance to get in a position to have a match point again. "Even on the second match point I missed a ball, but I was trying to go for it, so I didnt worry too much, either. "I think that was a bit the theme the whole match: even if I was down 5-2 or 4-1 in the third, not to worry too much, keep going, keep going, keep going, and it paid off in the end." Bouchards mental toughness and aggressive play have earned her comparisons to Sharapova. Does she like that? "There are positives and negatives," Bouchard said. "Of course shes a great champion, so to be seen as the next of someone who has won four slams and has been No. 1 in the world, its a compliment. "But at the same time, of course, Im my own person and I just want to be myself on the court, and you know, try and achieve what I want to achieve and just be seen as that." Bouchard is the only womens player to make the semis at both slams this season. She is part of the future of womens tennis and looking to prove the future is now. Bouchard readily admits that back in January when she made that magical run to the Australian Open semis, she suffered from a bit of stage fright at the start of a straight-sets loss to Li Na. "I was maybe a little bit frozen at the beginning of that match," she said. "Ill be much more ready this time."

          Americano-palestiniana Rashida Tlaib va deveni prima femeie musulmană aleasă în Congresul SUA      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Rashida Tlaib, fiica unor imigranţi palestinieni arestată în urmă cu doi ani pentru că a întrerupt un discurs al lui Donald Trump, a intrat miercuri în istorie, urmând să devină prima femeie musulmană aleasă în Congresul american, informează joi AFP. Fosta avocată în vârstă de 42 de ani a câştigat alegerile primare din Michigan, clasându-se în faţa altor cinci candidaţi democraţi şi asigurându-şi intrarea în Camera Reprezentanţilor după alegerile legislative de la mijlocul mandatului, în noiembrie. Astfel, Rashida Tlaib va deveni prima musulmană din istorie ce va intra în Congres, la 12 ani după primul musulman, Keith Ellison, ales din Minnesota. În prezent, doar un singur musulman este membru al Congresului SUA: Andre Carson, ales din 2008 în Indiana. Vizibil emoţionată după anunţarea rezultatelor, Rashida Tlaib s-a aruncat în braţele mamei sale, originară dintr-un sat din Cisiordania, de unde restul familiei a urmărit cu atenţie seara electorală. Alegerea republicanului Donald Trump a constituit, în opinia ei, "un semnal de alarmă" pentru numeroase femei americane, care au candidat în număr mai mare ca oricând pentru un loc în Congresul federal, în principal în tabăra democrată, după un an marcat de mişcarea #MeToo. Ea a explicat că a candidat mai ales din raţiuni personale, având în vedere în special dificultatea celor doi fii ai săi de a-şi găsi locul într-o ţară tot mai ostilă la adresa musulmanilor, care reprezintă în jur de 1,1% din populaţia americană. În mai, ea a afirmat pe postul CBS News că alegerea sa va trimite "un important mesaj" la nivelul SUA. "Noi (musulmanii) suntem parte integrantă a societăţii şi vrem să-i dăm ceva în schimb, la fel ca toţi ceilalţi", a spus ea. Rashida Tlaid îi va succeda oficial în ianuarie democratului John Conyers, 89 de ani, obligat să demisioneze în urma acuzaţiilor de hărţuire sexuală, după ce a fost membru al Congresului timp de peste jumătate de secol. Licenţiată în drept, Tlaid, care s-a născut şi crescut în Detroit, a lucrat ca avocat înainte de a intra, în 2009, în Camera Reprezentanţilor din Michigan. În august 2016, ea a întrerupt, la Detroit, un miting electoral al lui Donald Trump. "Copiii noştri merită mai mult", a declarat ea, implorându-l să citească textul Constituţiei americane, înainte de a fi scoasă din sală de serviciile de ordine. Fosta avocată promovează un program foarte progresist, începând cu egalitatea salarială între bărbaţi şi femei şi terminând cu accesul gratuit la universităţi, sănătatea publică, drepturile comunităţii gay, abrogarea decretului lui Trump asupra migraţiei sau protejarea mediului. Alte trei musulmane, candidate în Arizona, Massachusetts şi Minnesota, speră să intre alături de Tlaib în Congres, după alegerile de la jumătatea mandatului.AGERPRES/(AS - autor: Adriana Matcovschi, editor: Mihaela Toth, editor online: Alexandru Cojocaru)
          The insurgent left largely fell short in the Midwest, but they're playing the long game      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Michigan Democratic gubernatorial candidate Dr. Abdul El-Sayed with Sen. Bernie Sanders

  • A slate of insurgent progressives who hoped to ride to victory on the coattails of New York's Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez mostly fell short on Tuesday. 
  • But their campaigns have put pressure on the "establishment" wing of the party, and will likely reverberate through November's elections. 
  • Overall, female candidates — including one Democratic socialist — won the night. 

A slate of insurgent progressives who hoped to ride to victory on the coattails of New York's Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez mostly fell short on Tuesday. 

But their campaigns — powered by young people, people of color, and left-wing heavy-hitters — have put pressure on the "establishment" wing of the party, a trend that will likely reverberate through November's elections. 

In Michigan, one progressive insurgent — Democratic Socialist Rashida Tlaib — eked out a victory, while four others, including gubernatorial candidate Abdul El-Sayed and House candidate Fayrouz Saad, did not. (Notably, all three of these candidates are Muslim, and Tlaib will likely become the first Muslim congresswoman.) 

Both El-Sayed and Saad were beaten by female candidates with backing from major party institutions, including Emily's List, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, and labor unions. Gretchen Whitmer, a former leader in the state Senate, has spent years growing political roots in Michigan and won the gubernatorial race with 50% of the vote, while Haley Stevens, a Democratic consultant who helped lead President Barack Obama's auto task force, got a lift after Hillary Clinton recorded a rare, last-minute robo-call for her. 

Democratic activists say that El-Sayed, backed by Sen. Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, should see his loss as a first foot in the door. 

"We haven't heard the last of Abdul El-Sayed," said Sean McElwee, a progressive activist and pollster. "This is a genuinely impressive state-wide performance and proof that young progressives have something to say. It's time for the party to listen."

And they see Tlaib's victory as a boon for Democratic socialism and progressivism more broadly. 

"The future of the Democratic Party is progressive women of color with deep roots fighting for their districts," McElwee said. "Progressives should be thrilled about Tlaib's victory."

In Kansas, Brent Welder, a labor lawyer promoted by Sanders and Ocasio as the most progressive candidate in the state's third congressional district, lost to Sharice Davids, an attorney and Kansas' first gay and Native American congressional nominee. And in Missouri, Rep. William Lacy Clay beat insurgent challenger and community activist Cori Bush, who received strong support from Ocasio-Cortez. 

McElwee said no one should be surprised that progressive leftists tend to do better in deep-blue places like the Bronx and Detroit. It makes sense that first-time outsider candidates — particularly with new ideas — would have a harder time in the Midwest. 

"Progressives tend to endorse underdog candidates," McElwee said. "Underdog candidates tend to lose — that's why they're called underdog candidates." 

He added that as the progressive left grows, its candidates will improve in quality, viability, and diversity. 

But others in the Democratic party say the candidates who won on Tuesday are progressive leaders in their own right, nominated to defy the president. 

"Anyone who tries to see every 2018 primary as if it was redux of 2016 doesn't really understand what Democrats are voting for right now," said Jesse Ferguson, a top spokesman for Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign. "The candidates who are winning primaries are almost all progressive leaders who have demonstrated something special about them and their campaign which makes Democratic voters ready to trust them to take on Trump and take away his full control of government." 

Jess McIntosh, a Democratic consultant, argued that characterizing a Democrat like Davids as part of the political "establishment" is wrong-headed. 

"Congratulations to @sharicedavids in #KS03!" she tweeted. "<whispers> there is no political reality in which a Native American LGBTQ woman candidate is 'establishment.'" 

Time's Charlotte Alter pointed out on Wednesday that while young and insurgent candidates have had mixed success this year, female candidates are doing remarkably well.

In addition to Tlaib, Whitmer, Davids, and Stevens, Laura Kelly won the gubernatorial primary in Kansas and former Acting Secretary of Defense Elissa Slotkin won another Michigan House primary on Tuesday. 

In May, Dave Wasserman of the non-partisan Cook Political report looked at the 65 House Democratic primaries (without incumbents) that featured at least one man and one woman. The female candidates defeated their male opponents in 45 of the 65 races (69%).
