          David Copperfield Found Negligent But Won't Pay For Injury During Magic Act       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
No doubt, this was something famed illusionist David Copperfield hoped would go away. However, unlike one of his magic acts, he couldn't just make it disappear with the wave of a hand. On Tuesday, a jury in Las Vegas found Copperfield negligent but not financially responsible for an injury suffered by British tourist Gavin Cox, who says he slipped and fell while acting as a "volunteer from the audience" during an illusion in Las Vegas in 2013. It is a qualified victory for Copperfield, but it still comes at a steep price: His lawyers were unable to prevent the disclosure of secrets about the illusion in question, known as "Lucky #13." The mechanics of the act seem remarkably pedestrian — as in, it involved a lot of walking (and running) around for those who volunteered to "disappear." According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal , "Cox was among 12 other volunteers who seemed to disappear from Copperfield's elevated stage, when in reality, they were whisked off the platform by flashlight

          Trump Supports Improving Background Checks, But Will That Mean Action?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Updated at 9:30 a.m. ET President Trump is facing calls to act in the wake of the latest mass shooting, which killed 17 people Wednesday at a high school in Florida, and the White House is not ignoring them. The president will participate in a pair of listening sessions on school safety this week, and on Monday morning the White House said he supports efforts to improve the federal background check system, something Congress has expressed broad support for without acting on after past shootings. The cyclical aftermath of the nation's mass shooting has repeated itself several times during Trump's year-old presidency, including with the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history when 59 people were killed on the Las Vegas strip last October, and when 26 people were killed at a church service in Sutherland Springs, Texas, in November. In both instances, Democrats called for a major push for gun control, and even some Republicans said modest changes to the nation's gun laws might be in

Gwen Stefani Scores Big In Vegas

Gwen Stefani is set to score a huge payday from her current Las Vegas Residency.

The 48-year-old has joined the likes of Celine Dion, Shania Twain, Britney Spears, and now Lady Gaga by taking up residency in Las Vegas. Stefani has been making her home at the Zappos Theater in Planet Hollywood and she has already played 12 shows during her stay. And since bringing her “Just a Girl” show to sin city, People shares that Blake Shelton’s lady has already raked in $5.5 million from her first few shows.

When she announced her stint, Stefani shared that she was just as excited as her fans were about her stay in Sin City.

“I just gotta take a second to actually believe this is happening. Imagine, I’m just a girl from Orange County in Anaheim, California, and never in my wildest dreams could I imagine that I’d be doing my own Vegas Residency.”

  • I talked to someone who went to the Civil War Museum in Fort Worth. You know, that one on west 820 around Lake Worth which you've driven by a thousand times? Verdict: Pretty, pretty good. 
  • There was a shooting death in Forest Hill over the weekend where the 25 year old victim, Roderick Brunswick, listed his hometown as Bridgeport. 
  • Tell me this can't possibly be true:
  • Here's Trump's lawyer acting crazy again. (1) He got mad at that?, (2) He didn't deny worrying about Trump's tweet?, and (3) And what does "Law School" have to do with any of this? 
  • We've got another security guard killing a guy at a strip club. A few weeks back it happened at Roxy Showgirl in north Fort Worth, and last night it happened off of Regal Road and Stemmons in Dallas (it sounds like in the area of Zona Rosa Cabaret.)
  • What a crazy race last night for a Ohio Congressional seat -- a district that is 86% white and which has been strongly Republican for decades There are still 5,038 absentee ballots and 3,435 provisional ballots outstanding. 
  • In women's professional basketball, the team from Las Vegas, after 25 hours of travel due to delayed and cancelled flights, decided they were too tired to play.
  • Man, if this is real, it is shocking: That's alleged audio of embattled car salesman Bart Reagor addressing his employees with a ton of F Bombs. It definitely sounds like him, and you've got to love him bragging about having a mansion on 19th Street in Lubbock. (And he makes Alec Baldwin speaking to the salesmen in Glengarry Glen Ross look like a choir boy.)
  • We've found the dumbest school board in America. The school board for Parkland, Florida (where the mass shooting occurred) was ordered to release some documents to the press but was allowed to make certain redactions. After the documents were provided, someone on Facebook told the paper, "Hey, if you'll just copy and paste that electronic document into Microsoft Word you'll be able to see the redacted text." (Paraphrased.) It worked. Now the school board is urging the court to find the paper in contempt for publishing the text that was supposed to be redacted. Good luck with all that. 
  • The officer in the story below rejected an odd plea bargain offer of, "Admit to hurting the dog and give up you officer certification and we will dismiss the case." At this point, the only thing that will save his career is a Not Guilty verdict. And it's not the strongest of cases against him. 
  • Greg Abbott's "bail bond reform" proposal was nothing more than trying to advance his own political career by using the death of a DPS Trooper. It won't change a thing. And the head of DPS, Steve McCraw, was right by his side when he did it. 
  • I'm telling you, that Manafort trial is getting weird. The judge and the prosecutor continue to fight, and the judge even accused him of crying in court.
  • Messenger: Above The Fold (Today's paper lists the new teachers in the districts around the county, and I noticed Bridgeport has a "Drone teacher.")

Sinners seeking a taste of old Las Vegas can now get one step closer, thanks to the just-completed restoration and repainting of the iconic Silver Slipper.

For decades the Silver Slipper—a 10-foot-tall, illuminated, rotating piece of ladies' footwear—adorned its eponymous casino with just the right whiff of desert decadence. Originally built in 1950, the Silver Slipper became particularly notorious among Vegas casinos in 1964, when it became the first popular one to be shut down for cheating, on the grounds that it used “flat dice” that made the valuable craps combination of six and one harder to roll.

It eventually reopened, only to draw the ire of eccentric aviation magnate and Vegas kingpin Howard Hughes, who owned the neighboring Desert Inn. The reclusive Hughes feared that a photographer was stalking him from inside the giant shoe. So in 1968 he bought the casino and turned off the slipper for good. The casino was demolished in 1988, and the slipper languished at the Young Electric Sign Company, which then donated it (and many other signs) to the Neon Museum’s “Boneyard” of defunct Vegas signs.

article-image

A collaboration between the City of Las Vegas and the Neon Museum, the Las Vegas Signs Project, has brought nine historic signs blazing back to gaudy life along Las Vegas Boulevard, including the slipper. (A single restoration can cost upwards of $50,000, according to the museum.) Since the early 1960s, the bottom and top of the slipper had been painted a very Vegas red, but the restoration team wanted to return the slipper to its original 1950s hues—silver, gold, and blue. Specialists from the Neon Museum selected the specific shade of blue after analyzing photos of the slipper from the 1950s and early 1960s. To ensure maximum accuracy, collections manager Tracey Sprague explains, the team compared paint samples to the photographs under natural sunlight.

The slipper’s restored, cooler blue tone does seem to slightly de-Vegas the shiny high-heel, but it remains a metallic, historic pillar of illicit Americana.

A full round up from the New York festival...

Though a storm cut the Friday short just a few hours into the festival opening and Lil Wayne pulled out due to travel issues on Saturday, the high-profile artists that did have the opportunity to perform rewarded fans with consistently strong sets in what were two strong days of Panorama 2018.

Boasting two stages and an outdoor club, Panorama’s structure would cause a diehard fan to have to do a bit of sprinting, but the physical grounds are easily navigable with good stage sightlines from just about anywhere.

As an alternative to New York’s other marquee music festival, Governor’s Ball, Panorama feels decidedly more mature, with a lineup that doesn’t seem overly swayed by the trends of the day.

Without further ado, let’s break down eight highlight acts from Panorama.

As I was heading to the festival grounds on Friday the remainder of the acts were cancelled due to severe weather, so these names only reflect Saturday and Sunday of the festival.

Saturday

Japanese Breakfast
Michelle Zauner and her band beefed up tracks like 'Machinist' and 'Road Head' while still showcasing Zauner’s wry lyricism and showcasing some of the tracks’ more intricate guitar and synth melodies. She delivered a standout performance on 'Heft', and drew attention to her own left-field but strong pop sensibility by remarking, “It’s not everyday you get to open for a fucking Jackson.”

St. Vincent
Performing a slew of tracks off 'MASSEDUCTION' with an intoxicating confidence and an unsettling stage lineup (including two of her backup band members in masks and wigs), St. Vincent’s set was a strong contender for the best of Panorama.

The pop sheen of many of the album’s catchiest tracks like 'Pills' or the title song were scraped away revealing whirring and pumping mechanics of digitized drums and angular guitar. By varying her delivery, Annie Clark was able to capture the full dystopian picture of her latest record while still showcasing a darkly humorous sensibility.

And, fittingly, her closing performance of 'New York' was packed with such rich, heartfelt nostalgia for the city of yesteryear it felt like a condensed reading of Lizzie Goodman’s NY indie rock opus Meet Me In The Bathroom.

SZA
A triumphant homecoming of sorts made even more poignant by SZA’s recent struggles with the health of her voice, the TDE songstress was absolutely radiant during her turn on the main stage. “The last time I was in New York I was not well, and I want to say thank you for coming out and fucking with me,” she said to an elated and supportive crowd. Her falsetto was a touch shaky, but she displayed all of the skills that made her one of 2017’s breakout stars rapping and singing during the extended outro of 'Love Galore'.

She also one of the most dynamic visual accompaniments of the weekend, with a nostalgic Drew Barrymore montage underscoring her track named after the actress, and a montage of Disney clips during 'Broken Clocks' that were presented on a stack of screens meant to mirror the cover of 'Ctrl'.

Janet Jackson
Jackson staged a stunning, multi-part set that highlighted her deep catalogue, dancing ability, and ability to command a stage with her words and actions. “That’s a lot hits, huh?” Jackson asked following an opening phrase that included 'The Knowledge', 'What Have You Done For Me Lately', 'Nasty', and more. Jackson’s voice occasionally was overwhelmed by the choreography or booming instrumentals, but she’s always been more of a total package entertainer and hasn’t lost a step since her heyday.

Jackson also paid homage to her storied role in hip-hop, playing collaborations with Missy Elliott, Busta Rhymes, and J. Cole while teasing Kendrick Lamar’s 'Poetic Justice' while performing 'Any Time, Any Place', the song which it samples. The set took a solemn turn in the latter third, when she leaned into the themes of The Velvet Rope and performed 'What About' while her dancers mimed troubling scenes of domestic abuse.

While there was plenty of rhythmic escapism, this is Jackson’s State of the World Tour, and she isn’t avoiding hard truths.

Sunday

Mount Kimbie
The British duo’s intimate tracks blossom live thanks to precise, pounding drums and knack for letting their tracks crack open and ooze into throbbing, synth-heavy jams that feel fit for soundtracking a night spent messing around on the DeepDream generator. The band executes their churning midtempo tunes, with such effortless precision that if Kai Campos didn’t have his sleeves rolled to his elbows it made me have felt almost mechanical.

Still, the band’s commitment to a fuller, richer sound on 'Love What Survives' translates to the stage, and the fuller low end on 'Marilyn' and 'Blue Train Lines' sells each track’s emotional urgency.

Jlin
The mid-western footwork phenom put on a joyous, uptempo, and perfectly EQ’d set at the festival’s open-air club, The Point, but the setting did feel a little minor for an artist who frequently offers a jaw-dropping dance crew or elaborate visuals. Given how far The Point was from the main stages it felt both like a welcome reprieve but also entirely removed from what was happening on the grounds. It’s hard to picture what a set from a hometown star like Yaeji would have been like.

The xx
The iconic UK trio’s set felt largely divided into two segments: one in which guitarist Romy Madley Croft and bassist Oliver Sim, the group’s dual vocalists, were the stars and one where producer/percussionist Jamie xx took the spotlight.

That’s not to say that either section was un-engaging, as Croft and Sim captured the narrative of 'Say Something Loving' unfolding on stage masterfully, while xx built a cathartic dance groove out of his track 'Loud Places'. Had the pacing not been so logical it might have been more obvious, but the setlist built smartly from dark and downtempo to thumping and restorative.

On the last stretch of their tour for 'I See You', it will be fascinating to see how they connect their melodic and rhythmic sides in the studio once again.

The Killers
Since last year, The Killers have been touring without guitarist Dave Keuning and bassist Mark Stoermer, and if it weren’t apparent before The Killers have morphed into the Brandon Flowers show (with an assist from longtime drummer Ronnie Vannucci Jr. As Flowers made clear, this nine-piece ensemble onstage wasn’t merely The Killers but The Killers “By way of fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada,” and the singer certainly seems ready for the band to become Vegas residency darlings. He’s perfected a kind of pseudo-conspiratorial charisma where you quickly become so sucked into his performance it feels like an A-list actor playing Flowers in a biopic.

The setlist put a valiant effort forth in terms of jamming in their staples while still going a bit deeper into the catalogue. The band’s sweeping tracks like 'A Dustland Fairytale' and 'The Way It Was' are so broad and rousing that they feel almost like Americana showtunes, though certain tracks like 'Smile Like You Mean It' carried more of the traditional Killers sensibility.

And as veterans of the festival circuit the band knew how to work the crowd, with plenty of repetitious call-and-response hooks and well-timed vocal dropouts. They even brought an aspiring drummer from the crowd on stage to take over Vannucci’s kit while he played guitar and Flowers handled the bass on 'For Reasons Unknown'. The young fan was solid if a little erratic on the tempo, and a few slight missteps didn’t phase the elated crowd.

Recent cuts like 'Run For Cover' and 'The Man' fit relatively smoothly into a 'Hot Fuss' and 'Sam’s Town'-heavy set, and Flowers sold each track with equal conviction. It’s been unclear for a few years whether the band can regain its widescreen heartland charm in the studio, but even this pared down iteration can find it on stage.

          Hoops Hello: Cole Bajema      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Hoops Hello: Cole Bajema Brian August 6th, 2018 at 12:57 PM

A couple years ago Cole Bajema was a 6'1" shooting guard at a 1A school in Lynden, Washington who was barely more likely to get a Big Ten basketball scholarship than a ham sandwich*. Now he's a 6'7" shooting guard headed to Michigan, and he doesn't even qualify as a sleeper any more. That says something about Bajema, who blew up when his unsponsored AAU team finally got to a tournament with scouts at it, and something about John Beilein, who treated Bajema like a major priority as soon as he saw him at camp:

During the first weekend of the July evaluation period, Michigan assistant coach DeAndre Haynes flew from an event in Atlanta to Seattle to watch Bajema. The following weekend in Pomona, California, Beilein was one of the first people in the gym, according to Brady, for Bajema's 8 a.m. tip-off. And last weekend, Beilein was in Vegas to get another look.

Though Bajema was not the only player Michigan was scouting at these events, he was a focal point.

"It never felt like Cole was on the back-burner or not a priority," Brady said. "It was interesting to see how much effort they put in for a kid on the Canadian border who nobody had really heard of."

The pure misery of the mid-major coaches when they saw Beilein walk into the gym must have been something.

Let's play the Feud!

*[it's reporting a Rutgers offer]

GURU RATINGS

Rivals ESPN 247 247 Comp
3*, NR NR 4*, 95 rating
#61 overall, #17 SF
N/A

Most of the scouting services haven't caught up with Bajema just yet. He was also in the virtually unranked bucket at 24/7 until his commitment prompted them to release his post-blowup ranking a bit early. A couple of Rivals analysts have mentioned Bajema positively on Twitter so he might get the same kind of bump there when they get around to it. Who knows about ESPN these days but they do have a couple of guys who scout the AAU scene pretty heavily. It might take them longer since they just did an update.

The upshot is that Bajema is probably going to be a consensus top 100 guy and his composite probably won't differ much from his current 24/7 ranking. A sleeper he is not. He's also more or less done being evaluated. He can go back to Lynden and score 80 points a game and nobody will see it. Which is fine.

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

SCOUTING

Literally everything not from UMHoops is based off a couple of open-entry AAU tournaments that Bajema starred in a earlier this summer, so there's no development story here. It's "here's this guy. He's pretty good." Virtually anyone who saw Bajema named him to some sort of risers list. 24/7's Josh Gershon:

"...good size and length, impressive athleticism, a pure shooting stroke with range to the perimeter, ball skills, a quick first step, crafty finishing ability and plus vision. He has nothing but upside as there's plenty of room for him to gain strength and as does, his game should only continue to improve."

Bajema featured in two other posts about players standing out in Las Vegas...

 

...breakout ... good size for the position, is very physically immature with plenty of room to get stronger and has an impressive skill set. Bajema has range to three with his jumper, can really pass it, has a respectable handle and is pretty good athlete.

 

Aaand there it is:

... has a lot of value as a shooter, but he’s not just that. He showed good footwork, fine mechanics, deep range and the ability to deck it and make a play. He’s still thin at this stage, but he’s extremely fluid, has long arms and is oozing with potential.

I wish I could bet on these things.

Elsewhere, Rivals's Eric Bossi also named him a riser after Las Vegas because he "looked like one of the best shooters in the country" and "can put the ball on the floor to create shots and moves pretty well laterally." That latter will be important if he's really going to be a 6'7" two-guard.

His coach on the game that got him his first big offers:

“The game that kind of sealed the deal for most of the guys came against Howard Pulley. They’ve got solid players across the board,” Brady said. “We started the game down 20-4, but Cole scored the next 17 and went to work. He put it on the floor, finished through contract, and ones, deep threes against a team that’s good loaded with solid, Division I guys throughout the roster.

“He took over. They switched four or five defenders on him, but it didn’t work. He had 31 points, and really showed he was not only capable of playing well, but doing it against high-level competition."

And a more general take from him:

“He’s great in ball-screen situations, which he’ll have a chance to do in that system. I think he projects as a play-making combo guard,” Brady said. “He’s a fantastic ball-handler in the half-court. He can shoot it on his own, he’s got great vision, and he’s got the length to see over the defense. He can actually capitalize on (his vision), he can make all the passes that he needs to make.”

And Matt Bain goes old school ESPN BOOM BANG scouting:

He played guard his whole life and entered high school at 6-1 before spurting up to 6-7 by his junior year. His handle is crisp. His passing is pinpoint. His long-range shot is a high-arching beauty. His decision-making off a ball screen is smart. His first step is quicker than what you’d expect from a 6-7 player.

“If he’s a 6-7 wing with his weight, he’s maybe not quite a high-major player. But as a combo guard at 6-7 — with the way he shoots it, the way he handles it, the way he passes it — all of a sudden that became very interesting to (schools),” Brady said. “I think people are starting to see what he is as a basketball player — that he can be a combo guard, he can be a 6-7 creator. He’s not a wing; he’s a guy where you put the ball in his hands and he makes plays for people.”

There's also an extensive profile from the local paper if you want to know the particular mania it takes to be a D-I player in Lynden.

OFFERS

Xavier, Virginia, Oregon State, and Washington offered after Bajema's breakout AAU performance. Various mid-majors had also offered.

HIGH SCHOOL

Lynden Christian has not sent any basketball players to DI in the Rivals era. Luke Ridnour is from nearby Blaine, though. Bajema was named 1A player of the year but mostly I'm linking this because "Nooksack Valley." Heh.

STATS

23 PPG in high school.

VIDEO

Tape from Las Vegas:

This is from last year:

PREDICTION BASED ON FLIMSY EVIDENCE

A super-sized, rail-thin combo guard sounds like Caris Levert again, doesn't it? Your other recent comparable is, yes, Nik Stauskas, who became a 6'6" combo guard and pick-and-roll expert in his second and final year in Ann Arbor. I like 'em both.

UPSHOT FOR THE REST OF THE CLASS

Bajema and TX SF Jalen Wilson are likely it for now. Michigan's already oversigned by one, technically; I imagine Charles Matthews was explicit that this was his last year when he decided to return. Adding a third player to the class would (probably) require Michigan to have a pretty good idea that someone else was headed for a transfer or the pros. That's possible but Michigan is unlikely to be confident enough in that departure until the late signing period.

At that point the only players left on the board are the five star one-and-done types and deep sleepers. Michigan is in on WA PF Jaden McDaniels, sort of. Franz Wagner is also out there, being a Wagner. If it's not Wagner, a third player in the class is more likely to be a Caris Levert sort who Beilein unearths.

I'm confused re: Ham Sandwhich, future Rutgers star.

  • I thought he was already starting at QB for Rutgers. Will he count against Basketball or Football for scholarships?
  • Is mayo considered an impermissible benefit?
  • Let's say Sandwich is guarding Poole, and Poole decides to take a bite for every three he makes. When Jordan then goes 15-15 on him , could he then be convicted for  HAMslaughter?

really excited about Bajema... was going to say he seems like your typical Beilein 'sleeper' except the kid blew up... 61 is higher than Staukas or Brandon Johns...

but credit to Beilein and co, who have been on him since April...albeit a lot of that is a result of Bajema's coach reaching out and Bajema making his way to Michigan's Elite camp...

a 6'7" (possibly 6'8 by the time he enrolls) combo guard is really enticing... i don't think his handle is as good as a guy like Jalen was, but having him in the back court is something you know has Beilein rubbing his hands with glee...ditto with Haynes and Yaklich if he sticks as a 2 could be really exciting

tough question; i don't think he discussed playing the one, though i suppose it could happen depending on fouls or who the match up is against...

he did talk about hoping to get a chance at the 2 spot tho, so conceivably like MAAR i guess?

Today's post at UMHoops is worth a read for anyone who's a subscriber there - and if you aren't, you should be.  Basically he said similar things to Brian but gets into the future of the class a bit more with names.  Specifically, Michigan is likely done with all of the similar 3.5-4 star guys you've heard about all cycle.  They'll keep the 5-starts and Wagner on the line until the spring when they have a better feel for their ability to find another spot.  He also talks about Beilein following the trend of "positionless basketball".

August 6th, 2018 at 4:00 PM Cole Bajema Commits To Michigan Brian August 4th, 2018 at 3:55 PM

In news that could have been slightly more spread out, basketball has grabbed a commitment from WA SG Cole Bajema. Like Quintel Kent, who just committed to football, Bajema can be fairly called a sleeper. Unlike Kent there's a lot of reasons to believe he won't be called one for much longer.

Michigan's interest was piqued after Bajema attended their elite camp because he's a guy who went from a 6'1" guard to a 6'7" guard in an improbably short period of time, and from there word spread and hounds started, uh, hounding:

Beilein told Brady he liked what he saw. Bajema, a 6-foot-7 guard, capitalized on the early interest and excelled at Michigan’s elite camp. The Wolverines kept track of him during the first two evaluation periods of July — and they were the only high-major on his trail.

Last week in Las Vegas, Washington, Washington State, Utah, Virginia, Minnesota, Xavier, Northwestern, Virginia and Oregon State joined U-M in the bleachers for Bajema’s games. And Washington, Xavier, Oregon State and Virginia offered.

That's two one seeds from the most recent tournament if you're counting. Rivals's Corey Evans:

Despite Bajema's size it seems like he's taking the combo guard slot in the class:

“If he’s a 6-7 wing with his weight, he’s maybe not quite a high-major player. But as a combo guard at 6-7 — with the way he shoots it, the way he handles it, the way he passes it — all of a sudden that became very interesting to (schools),” Brady said. “I think people are starting to see what he is as a basketball player — that he can be a combo guard, he can be a 6-7 creator. He’s not a wing; he’s a guy where you put the ball in his hands and he makes plays for people.”

That likely means that Joe Girard and Rocket Watts will be looking elsewhere. So too might everyone else. Bajema's commitment puts Michigan one over in 2019. Charles Matthews's probably-inevitable exit for the pros after four years of college should solve that problem, leaving Michigan with a decision about whether to push it one slot further. It seems likely someone will either end up with a long road to playing time or blow up and head to the draft but Beilein might want to wait until that's clearer before taking a third player in the class. They do have some feelers out to touted guys who plan on deciding late.

Full hello on Monday.

Yes, this commit won't waiver. UM is his dream school.

"After writing this the information started to trickle out about how much Bajema coveted that Michigan offer. Before moving to Washington he grew up in Michigan and was raised rooting for the Wolverines. He also sent footage directly to John Beilein to get on their radar in the first place. Given all of that it quickly became evident that Michigan would be the the team to be beat if they offered. The term dream school gets overused but it seems evident that Michigan most certainly is that for Bajema."

          How Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Became a Hollywood Sensation      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
How Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Became a Hollywood Sensation
Alberto E. Rodriguez / Getty

We ask a lot of Dwayne Johnson. And he always comes through. Johnson has yet to encounter an obstacle he couldn’t overcome. He’s outlasted earthquakes (San Andreas), genetically modified rage animals (Rampage), scheming, murderous drivers (the Fast & Furious series), even mouthy comics (Central Intelligence and Jumanji). His screen heroics have made him one of the most bankable Hollywood stars in history—as close to a sure bet as you’ll find in today’s fragmented film industry. Over his career, Johnson’s movies have returned more than $8.9 billion in box office earnings worldwide.

In his newest adventure epic, Skyscraper, Johnson plays a former FBI agent and wounded amputee who must rescue his family from the tallest building in the world, which also happens to be set ablaze. We like his chances.

MAN OF THE CENTURY

From the first time he raised a taunting eyebrow from the squared circle of the WWE, Johnson has captivated a growing global audience of fans who can’t get enough of his physicality, wit, and outsize charisma. Producer, actor, wrestler, best-selling author, philanthropist—Johnson fills so many roles, you have to wonder if there’s more than one of him.

Despite his enormous success in the entertainment realm, Johnson never strays far from his athletic roots. He’s no green-screen concoction when it comes to strength and athleticism. Johnson looks the part because he works at it.

[RELATED1]

A former college football player at Miami, he still trains like an elite athlete. He lifts heavy. Stays lean year-round. Doesn’t skip leg day. A true Muscle & Fitness guy. In fact, he was named Man of the Century by this magazine in 2015.

Perhaps it’s his dedication to hard training that makes the Mr. Olympia contest so intriguing to Johnson. Unlike some who look down on bodybuilding, he’s an enthusiastic fan of the sport. His appearance at last year’s Mr. Olympia in Las Vegas was one of the weekend’s highlights, but Johnson made certain to keep the spotlight on the athletes competing.

Like Arnold Schwarzenegger before him, Johnson leveraged a distinct persona in a nonmainstream sport (or at least one not covered on ESPN) and became box office gold. Like Arnold, Johnson has expressed an interest in serving in political office, hinting at a desire to run for president.

It should be no surprise that Johnson would be intrigued by public service. He already generously gives back, using his social media platforms (e.g., 113 million followers on Instagram) to support numerous charitable causes, including The Rock Foundation, which is dedicated to the welfare of children.

Flaming skyscrapers are one thing, but can anyone fix our broken political system? Don’t count him out. Johnson is one of the few unifying forces left in a divided nation. After recent events, a Dwayne Johnson candidacy doesn’t seem so implausible.

Yes, it just may be time for the United States of The Rock. Because sometimes all you need is a big guy with a big heart.

          The Hurry Up: Ohio State Commits Set to Play on National Television While Several Pledges Receive Bump in Latest Composite Rankings      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The Hurry Up is your nightly dose of updates from the Ohio State football recruiting trail, keeping tabs on the latest from commits and targets from around the country.

FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS

Several Ohio State commits will be featured on national television this fall as part of the GEICO ESPN High School Football Showcase, an 11-week, 18-game schedule that pits some of the nation’s top programs against one another.

Among this year’s slate of games, Scottsdale, Arizona, Chaparral — led by Buckeyes four-star quarterback commit Jack Miller III and four-star running back pledge Darvon Hubbard — will take on Phoenix Pinnacle on Friday, Oct. 19. The Pioneers are quarterbacked by Oklahoma five-star commit Spencer Rattler.

The showcase wraps up with a highly anticipated matchup between top-ranked IMG Academy and No. 10 Hoover, Alabama — which you may recall from MTV’s Two-A-Days fame. Ohio State four-star cornerback commit Lejond Cavazos and the Ascenders are looking to complete their fourth-consecutive undefeated season.

Another notable game on the schedule features a trio of the Buckeyes’ top targets, as Washington D.C. St. John’s College goes up against Good Counsel, Maryland. The No. 5 Cadets are led by five-star linebacker Mekhail Sherman, four-star wide receiver Rakim Jarrett and four-star defensive tackle Tre Williams, all of whom visited Columbus for the first time last month.

In addition to the teams mentioned above, this year’s showcase also includes No. 3 Grayson, Georgia; No. 12 Las Vegas Bishop Gorman; and No. 16 Archer, Georgia. Every game will be televised on ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU.

SOME WELL-DESERVED MOVEMENT

With summer camps and 7-on-7 tournaments in the rearview mirror and actual football right around the corner, a new batch of 247Sports Composite Player Rankings — which combines prospect ratings from 247Sports, ESPN and Rivals — were unveiled earlier this week.

Ohio State holds commitments from 15 prospects, which is good for the eighth-best class in the country and No. 1 in the Big Ten. They hail from 10 different states, which includes three from within the state’s borders; two apiece from Georgia, Indiana and Tennessee; and one from Florida, Maryland, Michigan, New Jersey, Texas and West Virginia.

You can see where the Buckeyes’ pledges stack up nationally (as well as their movement up or down the rankings) below:

Before the Washington Mystics clinched a playoff berth with a win over the Phoenix Mercury on Tuesday, they received an additional win thanks to the Las Vegas Aces forfeiting their game against Washington that was supposed to be played Aug 3. The game was cancelled after the Aces traveled nearly 26 hours from Las Vegas to D.C. via Dallas. The traveling issues started for the Aces when their commercial flight was cancelled creating chaos and a long day of being stuck in an airport, going through the hassles of getting to Washington before their game. The WNBA pushed the start of the game back one hour from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. to help matters, however, after the team did not arrive to the city until well after 3 p.m. the team decided they were not going to risk health by playing the game. Unfortunately, the WNBA cited in their statement that the Aces  “failed to appear for the game.” pic.twitter.com/SBCypeCav8 — Las Vegas Aces (@LVAces) August 4, 2018 The union and team officials worked to a resolution that

Apparently, whoever was involved in setting the summer over-under win total for NBA teams made a big mistake, which means a great opportunity for Bulls fans to make some easy money. The Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas set the Bulls' win total for the 2018-19 season at 27.5, which is just a half game more than they won last season while suffering through a myriad of injuries and ever changing line-up combinations. Add in a full summer and training camp for a fully healthy Zach LaVine, and improved chemistry for the trio of LaVine, Kris Dunn and Lauri Markkanen, and even the most pessimistic NBA analyst would project the Bulls to win 30 games minimum.

          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:

          Las Vegas Shooter's Life Comes Into Focus, But Not His Motive      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Updated at 4:50 p.m. ET Investigators in Las Vegas are sifting through evidence they've gathered from the homes of the man who sprayed a concert crowd with gunfire. They've begun to interview his girlfriend. They've learned quite a bit about Stephen Paddock's past and preparation, but there is still no explanation for why he damaged and destroyed so many lives. Ken Russell is a retired wildlife biologist who lives in the same neighborhood where the Las Vegas shooter lived, in the sunny retirement community of Sun City Mesquite. That the carnage on Sunday night was carried out by someone living there was a shock, he said. "This is a quiet neighborhood," Russell said on Monday, as he walked among palm trees, cacti and houses of stucco and tile. "All of them up here in Sun City are quiet. People are too old to make any commotion." That was the first surprise for investigators: that a 64-year-old man, an apparently wealthy retiree, a former postal worker, IRS agent and government auditor,

Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit KELLY MCEVERS, HOST: Investigators in Nevada are looking through the evidence they collected at the homes of Stephen Paddock, the man who attacked the Las Vegas Strip Sunday night. He killed himself before police stormed his hotel room. Investigators have yet to determine a motive for what has become the deadliest mass shooting in modern American history, but they are hoping Paddock's computer hard drives will give some clues. They also hope to talk to his girlfriend, who has been out of the country. From Mesquite, Nev., NPR's Howard Berkes reports. HOWARD BERKES, BYLINE: One thing is absolutely certain about 64-year-old Stephen Paddock. He loved guns and had his own private arsenal. This is what investigators found at his home in Mesquite according to Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo.

          Microchip Security Flaw inside Samsung Galaxy S7 smartphones      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   



A security flaw inside a microchip of  the Samsung’s Galaxy S7 smartphones has put millions of devices at risk of being spied by the hackers, say security researchers.

Initially, Samsung phones were thought to be safe from a security vulnerability known as Meltdown, which was found to be present in most of the PCs, smartphones, and other devices. The security team from Austria’s Graz Technical University will present their findings at the Black Hat security conference in Las Vegas on Thursday.

The researchers told Reuters that they have found a way out to exploit the Meltdown vulnerability to attack the so-called immune Galaxy S7 smartphones.

However, Samsung spokesperson released a statement: "Samsung takes security very seriously and our products and services are designed with security as a priority. Since being notified by Google, we've promptly rolled out security updates to address the issues in January 2018 and released software updates including additional patches in May 2018 to further protect devices at the chipset level."

"We recommend that all customers keep their devices updated with the latest software to ensure their device is protected at an optimal level," the statement read.

One of the security researchers, Michael Schwarz believe that there could be many more other devices that are vulnerable to the Meltdown vulnerability.

“There are potentially even more phones affected that we don’t know about yet. There are potentially hundreds of millions of phones out there that are affected by Meltdown and may not be patched because the vendors themselves do not know,” said one of the researchers, Michael Schwarz.

          HC Wake-Up Call: Trump's 'Space Force' to Launch, Proposal to Remove Trump's Walk of Fame Star & Biden Announces #AsYouAre Campaign      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Good morning, Her Campus! With a break-neck news cycle, there is no possible way for you to stay on top of every story that comes across your feeds—we’re all only human, after all.

But, life comes at you fast. So grab a cup of coffee and settle in for this quick and dirty guide to stories you might’ve been sleeping on (like, literally. It’s early.)

President Donald Trump's “Space Force” Prepares to Launch

President Donald Trump’s call for a “space force” is one step closer to preparing for launch as the Pentagon is expected to deliver its plans to strengthen the Defense Department’s space efforts to Congress this week.

The president made the surprise announcement that he was directing the military to undertake the space mission during a National Space Council meeting in June, ABC News reports.

via Susan Walsh - AP

While some of the supposed duties of the “space force” are already handled by the Air Force, Trump has argued that an additional military service is needed to protect the country’s military vulnerabilities in space.

The president, however, cannot add another branch to the military without congressional approval, but the Pentagon is moving forward to the extent that is already within the executive branch’s stand up certain elements of a future “space force.”

Last week, Defense One reported that the Pentagon plans to create a new combatant command for space, a new joint agency for satellite purchases and a new warfighting community that draws space operators from all service branches.

Defense Secretary James Mattis expressed his support on Thursday for creating a new combatant command dedicated to space.

Asked if he supports such a program, Mattis said, “Yes. Absolutely, we need to address space as a developing warfighting domain, and a combatant command is certainly one thing that we can establish.”

“We are in complete alignment with the president's concern about protecting our assets in space and contribute to our security, our economy,” Mattis continued. “And we're going to have to address it as other countries show a capability to attack those assets.”

According to a White House official, Vice President Mike Pence will reveal the plan during his speech at the Pentagon on Thursday.

West Hollywood City Council Votes to Remove Trump's Walk of Fame Star

The West Hollywood City Council has unanimously voted in favor of a resolution to remove President Donald Trump’s star from the Walk of Fame, which has been vandalized several times since Trump assumed office.

The resolution requests that the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and Los Angeles remove the star due to Trump’s “disturbing treatment of women and other actions,” Politico reports.

The resolution was brought forth by West Hollywood council members John D'Amico and Lindsey Horvath.

“Similar to how certain members of the entertainment community have been removed from the Academy of Motion Pictures, due to their actions toward women, reflecting a stance on their values by the Academy, this is an opportunity for decision-makers to take a stand on their values in support of women and against disturbing treatment of women,” the West Hollywood City Council said ahead of their vote on Monday.

The council members also noted the president’s policies, including removing the United States from the Paris Climate Agreement and the separation of families at the U.S.-Mexico border.

There have been campaigns to remove stars in the past, but it has never happened in the Walk of Fame’s 40 year history.

Hollywood Chamber of Commerce CEO Leron Gubler told The Los Angeles Times that the chamber has never removed a star because it’s part of the walk’s “historic fabric.”

“Once a star has been added to the Walk, it is considered a part of the historic fabric of the Hollywood Walk of Fame,” Gubler said back in 2015 when the chamber knocked down a proposal to remove Bill Cosby’s star.

The Chamber of Commerce would have the final say in removing the star.

Former Vice President Joe Biden Announces #AsYouAre Campaign to Promote LGBTQ Acceptance

Former Vice President Joe Biden has joined up with singer Cyndi Lauper and former NFL player Wade Davis to launch the #AsYouAre campaign to promote acceptance of the LGBTQ community.

“We’ll use our resources to highlight the harms of family rejection, and to lift up research, best practices, and personal stories to show the importance of family acceptance,” Biden said in #AsYouAre’s promotional video.

Biden has long been a supporter of the LGBTQ community, and touched on the progress made in support of the LGBTQ individuals such as the legalization of same-sex marriage.

“While we must continue working to pass laws and implement policies that protect LGBTQ youth across the spectrum of their lives, laws and policies are not enough,” Emily Hecht-McGowan, director for LGBTQ Equality at the Biden Foundation, said in a statement. “We must also change the culture. We know that personal stories are the single best tool we have to change hearts and minds to move us towards a culture of acceptance — not rejection.”

Amit Paley, the CEO and executive director of the Trevor Project, an organization that serves LGBTQ youth and provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention services, told ABC News that LGBTQ youth are eight times more likely to attempt suicide if they comes from a rejecting family, rather than an accepting one.

To eradicate this issue, the Biden Foundation is asking everyone to share their story of acceptance, or rejection, regarding the LGBTQ community.

“Over the coming weeks, through the #AsYouAre campaign, the Biden Foundation will begin sharing the stories we collect to educate the general public about the reality that many LGBTQ young people face,” Hecht-McGowan said. “We will highlight both the harms that come from being rejected and also the beauty that can come from being affirmed and supported. Our goal is to move us towards a world where no young person is rejected by their family or their community simply because of who they are or who they love.”

“By sharing your stories...Your stories! ...We can work together to change the culture and ensure a bright future for the LGBTQ young people of America,” Biden said.

          Jeff's Famous Jerky - Jamaican Jerk      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
jeffs famous jerky
Jeff's Famous Jerky recently released this new flavor, Jamaican Jerk. Based out of Mission Viejo, CA, Jeff's Famous Jerky is a brand owned by Jeff's Famous Foods, Inc.

The company started up in 2010 when Jeff Richards decided to make a business from his favorite snack food, jerky. Since the 1970s, Richards has been making his own jerky, getting better year after year, similar to like a 40-year old bourbon. Professionally, Richards has spent his career in the restaurant business and also coaches entrepreneurs through a consulting business.

This Jamaican Jerk variety is described as being made from, "authentic Jamaican Jerk Sauce and their famous Scotch Bonnet Pepper", going on to say that it's a limited edition flavor because its so difficult to import the Jamaican Jerk sauce.

Ingredients

Beef, brown sugar, soy sauce, worcestershire suace, jerk seasoning, rice vinegar, balsamic vinegar, cayenne pepper natural smoke flavoring, granulated garlic, granulated onion, cumin, fresh garlic, scotch bonnet pepper sauce

Review

The first flavor that hits right away is a strong sweet, followed by a light salt, and a heavy seasoning. The scotch bonnet pepper flavor comes in, along with a fair amount of heat. The chewing bursts out a tanginess along with a light fruity character, and the natural meat flavors towards the end. There's a lingering garlic and onion in the background.

For being marketed as as Jamaican style, with an emphasis on Scotch Bonnet peppers, this jerky really hits the mark. I do get that heavy seasoning blend that Jamaican style cuisine is known for, but I also get a fruity, tangy flavor that one expects from Caribbean cooking. The Scotch Bonnet peppers, which Jamaica is famous for, adds a noticeable punch to this jerky with its fruity flavor, but also a moderate level of heat. It's not a seething hot burn, but toned down for non-stop snacking purposes. It rates a "medium" on our heat scale (3/5).

Otherwise, the primary taste profile is a well-seasoned steak sauce, savory, with a fair amount of sweet, but also a good deal of fruity, tropical flavors. The flavor and heat of Scotch Bonnet peppers is laden over that, along with a lingering garlic and onion back flavor, and finally the natural meat flavors at the end.

The meat consistency is excellent. This is a semi-moist, and tender jerky cut from what appears to be beef brisket. The initial bite is soft yet meaty, and once chewed down it feels almost like filet-mignon cooked medium rare. I didn't find any stringiness or unchewable tissues.

Verdict

This Jamaican Jerk variety from Jeff's Famous Jerky goes all in with an explosion of flavors that hit all areas of the palate, just as you would expect form Jamaican style cuisine. It's has a lot of sweet, but also a lot of tangy, fruity flavors, and a good dose of spices and seasonings. It's also savory with its saucy marinade, and beefy with its tender, meaty chewing. Moreover, the rich flavor of Scotch Bonnet peppers comes through well in this and adds a moderate level of heat. But this isn't just a mish-mash of ingredients, it tastes like its crafted to lure you in with an initial sweet, slowly introduce the spices and marinade, then burst out the tangy, fruity and chile character. Jeff's Famous Jerky is known for its complex recipes and delicate balance of flavors, and has once against created a jerky that attacks all areas of the tongue like a Michelangelo at a Las Vegas buffet.

Rating: Best (5/5)

For more than a year, GOP Sen. Rand Paul has been staking out positions on issues that resonate in the black community, including school choice and prison sentencing reform. And he's been showing up in some unexpected — for a Republican — venues, including historically black colleges. It's stirred an unusual degree of curiosity about the freshman Kentucky senator — and 2016 GOP presidential prospect — among the Democratic Party's most reliable voting bloc. "He's a different voice in the arena that we don't traditionally hear," says Lorraine Miller, acting head of the NAACP, who expects to invite Paul to speak at the organization's July national conference in Las Vegas. "He's an engaging guy — that's why we want to talk to him," Miller says. Miller is not the only black leader who has been intrigued by Paul, whose father, former Texas Rep.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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







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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Police say that on Sunday night, Paddock broke out windows in a 32nd-story hotel room at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino and pulled the trigger, raining a hail of gunfire on concertgoers at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival across the street. Witnesses described what followed as "nonstop gunfire" that sent people fleeing for their lives. At least 59 people were killed and more than 500 injured.

En esta edición especial de TAG desde el CES (Consumer Electronics Show) que ahora los organizadores insisten en que se llama “InternationalCES” en Las Vegas, podrás ver algunas de las novedades que nos encontramos antes de que arranque de forma oficial la exposición. En el evento previo llamado “Unveiled” nos encontramos con un tenedor que tiene un sensor y avisa si estás comiendo muy rápido… por otro lado, encontramos un teléfono para emergencias con las funciones necesarias para esos casos.Estuvimos en varias conferencias de prensa y en la de Samsung pudimos platicar con José Luis de la Vega, director de marketing para México, quién nos comentó sobre los lanzamientos.Y como buena parte del equipo se trasladó a Las Vegas, ahora Javier salió a la calle –casi nunca lo hace en esta ciudad- y se dedicó a grabar algunos de los símbolos icónicos de la “Ciudad del Pecado” como le dicen por acá. Te invitamos a ver este TAG edición especial y también te invitamos a seguir nuestra cobertura especial desde Las Vegas que estaremos publicando a la largo de la semana en unocero.com.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PDqAvwi-E1M

The Las Vegas Aces lost two games — one on the court, another for refusing to take the court. The WNBA ruled the Aces must forfeit last weekend's contest against Washington, which was called off when the Las Vegas players decided not to play because of concerns about their health and safety after 26 hours of travel . Las Vegas started strong and led much of the way before fading down the stretch, losing 109-100 for a double-setback that largely snuffed out any hopes of making the playoffs.

From the taming of the ‘Wild West’ to the lucrative wages of sin.
In October 1864, with the nation embroiled in civil war, the world’s longest telegram was dispatched west to east across the United States. Its content was the Constitution of Nevada and it was an urgent transmission: the Constitution – required for Nevada Territory to become a state – had originally been sent to Washington by post, but had not arrived. Anticipating Nevadan support, the incumbent president, Abraham Lincoln, was keen to grant statehood in time for a crucial election on 8 November, a deadline met with just days to spare on 31 October. This picture essay takes Nevada as a case study in which many of the broader themes of US history have played out: the taming of the ‘Wild West’; the displacement of native peoples; the pursuit of wealth; exploitation of the land; freedom and the federal system; the Atomic Age; boosters, bravado and, in the leisure pursuits for which the state enjoys notoriety, the lucrative wages of sin.THE STATE OF THINGSNevada’s statehood was controversial: according to the Northwest Ordinance of 1783, states required a population of at least 60,000. Nevada had under half that figure and many of its settlements – such as Ruby Hill, pictured above – were mining towns vulnerable to boom and bust. Destroyed by a storm in 1910, Ruby Hill became one of the state’s ghost towns. In the early 20th century, with population falling, critics questioned whether Nevada merited representation in Congress. Other calls to revoke statehood centred on questions of decency – or Nevada’s lack of it.FEELING LUCKY?‘Luck has shaped Nevada’, as the historian Michael Green puts it. Gambling is near synonymous with the state, but the original Constitution prohibited it, along with theatres, racetracks and cockfighting. Hoping to win big, the state legalised gambling in 1931, just as other states (including neighbouring California) were clamping down on it. The bright lights of Las Vegas were among its winnings.FADING FRONTIERFor those people for whom the New World was indeed new, Nevada was an arid, mountainous expanse of land to be crossed – often as quickly as possible. In the 16th century, the Spanish found nothing of interest in Nevada, which they named for the snowy mountain range which would later prove an obstacle to ‘Manifest Destiny’ – the 19th-century belief that America’s settlers were destined to expand across the continent. In 1846, pioneers trying to reach California, known as the Donner Party, became stranded in the Sierra Nevada, resorting to cannibalism to survive.THIS LAND IS YOUR LANDNevada has been described as ‘a laboratory for how Americans define freedom’. When settlers arrived, the land’s native peoples broadly comprised the Northern and Southern Paiute, Washoe and Western Shoshone people. In 1860, the Pyramid Lake War was fought between allied native forces and victorious US Army-backed settlers, who had been exerting their freedom by usurping Paiute grazing land and disrupting food supplies.GOD’S OWN COUNTRYFounded by Joseph Smith in New York in 1830, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints – the Mormons – were among Nevada’s earliest settlers, moving beyond then-US borders under the leadership of the ‘Mormon Moses’, Brigham Young. Built in 1855, the Mormon fort at Las Vegas is Nevada’s oldest surviving building. The Church established colonies throughout the ‘Mormon Corridor’, but with mass settlement came statehood and a ban on certain Mormon practices – see poster.THE HAND THAT FEEDSNevada’s history might seem driven by the illusion of luck, but the development of its infrastructure was not down to chance. Michael Green identifies another Nevada tradition: ‘supporting limited government while craving federal dollars to fund infrastructure and generate jobs’. The state’s highways – which, like the railway in the late 1860s, transformed the state, facilitating new towns and tourism – are one example of how Nevada has benefited from federal funds. In 1916 the Federal Aid Road Act encouraged states to establish a highway department by offering to match spending on new roads. Nevada spent $10 million on highway construction in 1926, partly funded by a gasoline tax. Grander federal projects followed.ROARING THIRTIESArguably the most recognisable project undertaken during President Roosevelt’s New Deal public works programme, the Hoover Dam – dubbed the ‘eighth wonder of the world’ – was built between 1931 and 1936 on the Colorado River at the Arizona-Nevada border. Boulder City, a federal town built by the government, was created to house the workers (whose wages were often spent in nearby Las Vegas). Surprisingly, the Great Depression could be seen as a boom period for Nevada, which received more money from the New Deal per resident than any other state.MOTHER LODEDiscovery of the Comstock Lode is a defining moment in Nevada’s history. A rich source of silver ore, it generated almost $300 million in the decades following 1859, earning Nevada its nickname ‘the Silver State’. Thousands of miners (and other entrepreneurs) arrived in the nearby boomtown, Virginia City; as the saying goes, fortunes could also be made ‘selling shovels’.MAN’S WORLDThe mining influx was overwhelmingly male. Pictured here, singer and dancer Fanny Hanks died in November 1893. Her obituary reveals a harsh story of boom and bust: ‘In her palmy days enthusiastic miners used to throw her gold’, but, ‘she married John Woodard, a worthless gambler, who was killed when he was found beating her’. Her popularity waning, she ‘lost her money in stocks’.ATOMICIn the 1950s, the US government began testing atomic weapons in Nevada. The first was dropped in 1951; 100 more would be tested at the Nevada Test Site before the explosions began to be detonated underground. The effect of the tests severely damaged Nevada’s relationship with the federal government, forging a legacy of mistrust: the increase of cases of cancer in local communities sat at odds with the government’s denial that bomb testing was dangerous.HEAVEN OR LAS VEGASLas Vegas first bloomed with dollars spent by workers on the nearby Hoover Dam. After they left, it was promoted as a frontier town with slogans like ‘The Old West in Modern Splendor’. The first resort opened on ‘the Strip’ – a stretch of road outside city limits – was El Rancho in April 1941. The rustic frontier image was soon eclipsed – under the influence of mobster ‘Bugsy’ Siegel – by the (gaudy) glitz which attracted Hollywood stars, the Rat Pack – and millions of less famous tourists.FOR A GOOD TIME, NOT A LONG TIMEWhat do André Breton, Jack Dempsey, Rita Hayworth, Bela Lugosi, General Douglas MacArthur, Norman Rockwell and Orson Welles have in common? They were all divorced in Reno. In the 20th century Nevada legitimised – and made unique selling points – of its insalubrious characteristics: this postcard reveals some of its various tourist lures. After 1931, divorce in Nevada required just six weeks’ residency in the state; more than enough time to enjoy the city’s other attractions.

          La chanteuse Lady Gaga annonce qu'elle va s'installer à Las Vegas pendant plus d'un an pour donner deux spectacles différents      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

La chanteuse américaine Lady Gaga a annoncé qu'elle allait s'installer en résidence à Las Vegas pour donner deux spectacles différents, afin de présenter ses deux visages musicaux: l'un extravagant, l'autre plus sobre et jazzy.

Comme notamment Céline Dion, Elton John ou encore Britney Spears avant elle, la chanteuse de 32 ans va donner des concerts dans la capitale du jeu à partir du 28 décembre et jusqu'à novembre 2019.

Elle va se produire sur la scène du tout nouveau Park MGM, un immense complexe hôtelier implanté sur le célèbre Las Vegas Strip et qui était autrefois le Monte Carlo Resort and Casino.

"Nous créons un spectacle qui ne ressemble à rien de ce que j'ai fait auparavant. Ce sera une célébration de tout ce qui est unique et différent en nous", a-t-elle indiqué dans un communiqué. "Les défis de la bravoure peuvent être relevés avec la créativité et le courage qui émergent de l'adversité, de l'amour et de la musique".

Le spectacle "Lady Gaga Enigma" promet d'être très théâtral, à l'image des provocations de ses débuts, tandis que "Lady Gaga Jazz and Piano" doit présenter une version plus minimaliste de son répertoire.

L'artiste a opéré un virage dans sa carrière il y a quatre ans en chantant avec le crooner Tony Bennett, d'une soixantaine d'années son aîné. Et elle a adopté un son plus mûr sur son dernier album "Joanne", aux tonalités de musique country évoquant la famille.

Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit RACHEL MARTIN, HOST: Federal prosecutors have suffered another serious setback in their attempt to convict the Bundy family for leading armed standoffs against the government in the West. A federal judge yesterday declared a mistrial in the conspiracy case against rancher Cliven Bundy, two of his sons and another member of the Bundy militia. The judge said prosecutors had willfully withheld evidence in the case of that 2014 armed standoff near the Bundy ranch. Here's NPR's Kirk Siegler.

So far, prosecutors have struggled to convict Cliven Bundy and his sympathizers in related cases. Here's NPR's Kirk Siegler. KIRK SIEGLER, BYLINE: It's been more than three years since Cliven Bundy led an armed standoff against federal agents near the family's ranch, and in that time, there was another armed standoff in Oregon and several failed attempts by federal prosecutors to convict the ranchers' militia followers. But this is the big case, the first time Cliven Bundy faces a jury. And in this trial, he and his two sons, Ammon and Ryan, and militiaman Ryan Payne are accused of assault and threatening federal officers and other felony conspiracy charges.

          Las Vegas Massacre Prompts Further Look Into Nevada's Gun Laws      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Next door to the Mandalay Bay casino where Sunday night's shooting rampage occurred on the Las Vegas strip, British tourist Gary Shepherd was struggling like nearly everyone else to process what happened. "Whether this will finally change your gun laws, I fancy not, personally," Shepherd says. The country's latest – and now deadliest in recent history – mass shooting has again reignited debate over gun control, and whether tougher gun laws could prevent future tragedies. The early analysis is that Shepherd's hunch is probably right. Just like in many other western states with large rural populations, Nevada's gun laws are relatively lax, and have proven hard to change. Hunting, recreational shooting and gun ownership is woven tightly into a lot of people's identities here. And even in more liberal-leaning Las Vegas, gun tourism is nearly as ubiquitous as gambling and stage shows. "We have a very strong gun culture, especially in rural Nevada and in Mesquite which is where the shooter
          Yes, This is Another Preachy Sermon…      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Remember when you were in Sunday school and the Bible teacher scared you into submission. You dared not talk or move, aghhhh… Most of us tuned out right after the question, “have you thought about your future?” Sure, later in life those of us who listened and those of us who did not, now know the preachy bespectacled authority was not all wrong.  I have to give Republicans credit they have used the vote as a scare tactic to keep their congregation inline, even when the issues are anathema to their own interest.  America’s current state of affairs is a perfect example. Republicans, who control both Houses of Congress are watching a man who has us one ruble away from fascism, destroy America from within, and without a peep.

Despite the obvious threats I was distressed to read a poll a few weeks ago that said only 28% of millennials plan on voting. That statistic is the result of some creative accounting once you examine the numbers.  Twenty-eight percent of 18 to 34-year olds say they will definitely support Trump with many pledging unspecified support to a third party candidate.  Numbers can be manipulated to reach the conclusion you want. Alarmingly only 46 percent, down from 55 percent, are committed to Democrats but that does not consider the overall drop to normal levels in Democratic voters following the enthusiasm of the Obama years. That still leaves a Democratic advantage of 46% to 28% with 26 percent undecided.    

Before you start watching the clock, hoping to get quickly through today’s sermonette, what is important is the  simple fact that voting gives you leverage.  Bump stocks are still legal even after the Las Vegas massacre. Why?  Republican legislators are afraid of losing a voter battle guided by fear of the NRA.  A tax cut that economist say will blow a trillion dollar or more hole in the national deficit passed. Why? Despite being against the interest of Mr. and Mrs. Midwest, Republicans were afraid to defy Trump’s Follie.  Trump has convinced crowds to cheer Vladimir Putin and words like, “ill-advised and ‘not something I would do” is the tepid conservative political response. Why? Trump has so coward Republicans, that war hawks like John Bolton are backing down in fear of his boss’ electorate.

That sort of voting pressure is a good thing when the people’s votes are followed by the demands for a just cause.  Republicans have turned on every one of the righteous credos they have advocated since Saint Ronnie was in office; family values; lower taxes; free trade, truth, justice and the American way, Superman is weeping. Okay Superman breaks the ethereal metaphor, but you did have to look up in the sky.

Anyway, back to the sermon.  I always end my little column with the words “Vote in ’18 for Change.” I know it sounds like the false syrupiness of saccharine but the American people of conscience have to sprinkle some genuine sugar on a quickly souring country. Democrats outnumber Republicans in sheer numbers and the electoral college excuse cannot be used in the Midterms, no more so than in 2010 or 2012. Democrats who sit home and whine about how both sides are the same and the old saw of the lesser of two evils have a tangible example of how wrong they are, in Donald Trump. Sometimes, you just have to admit your mistake, brother Obama said, “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” Benediction follows the hymn.

Vote in ’18 for change.

          New data show continued surge of hate crime, anti-Arab incidents, nationwide      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The sixth anniversary of the shooting at a Sikh gurdwara in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, which left six Sikh Americans dead and multiple wounded, was on Sunday, August 5. Next week, on August 12, we will observe the second anniversary of the hate crime murder of Khalid Jabara in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and the first anniversary of the violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, where a man drove a car into a crowd of anti-racist counter-protesters, killing Heather Heyer and wounding many others. The driver is facing federal hate crime charges.

One thing we can do to honor hate crime victims is to advocate an improved response to hate crime in American communities. State legislatures must pass criminal statutes offering inclusive protections for hate crime victims, enact requirements for hate crime reporting and data collection on the part of state and local law enforcement, and compel state-level police officer training commissions to provide mandatory instruction relating to hate crime and cultural awareness for basic and in-service training. 

While necessary, new legislation alone is not sufficient for an improved response to hate crime. State and local governments and law enforcement agencies must demonstrate a commitment to preventing hate crime, serving communities, and protecting victims. Last month, we released the inaugural edition of Rating the Response, our state-by-state resource guide on hate crime laws, reporting, and data collection. Our findings demonstrate that few states have passed legislation necessary for an improved response to hate crime. Our research into hate crime reporting and data collection also suggests that law enforcement and other government agencies, in some states more than others, are not positioned to effectively respond to hate crime.

In 2016, for example, approximately one-third of the city or university police departments representing populations of 100,000 or more people reported zero hate crime incidents to the FBI. Some agencies, including all 21 police departments in Florida representing a population of 100,000 or more, either did not participate in the national Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) hate crime statistics program or provided a “blank submission” during at least one quarterly submission period. A blank submission occurs when a participating agency fails to submit any data, even data indicating that zero hate crime incidents occurred (zero data), to the FBI during a specific period. Other police departments, including Spokane, Washington, and St. Louis, Missouri, also reported blank submissions in 2016. Even for agencies representing large populations that did submit hate crime incidents to the FBI, the majority reported fewer incidents, when adjusted for population, compared to the national average. Those agencies include Chicago, Houston, Las Vegas, Philadelphia, San Antonio, Dallas, and many others. 

These observations cast doubt over the quality and accuracy of our national hate crime data. In light of these concerns, we must advocate improved statistics at the state, local, and federal level. At the same time, we must continue to monitor and analyze the official data that are available, as they remain the principal resource for understanding the nature and extent of hate crime in American communities. The rest of this post will consider hate crime data for the first half of 2018 from the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), the subject of a recent report from the Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University, San Bernardino. A quick consideration of 2017 hate crime data from state and local agencies will conclude the post. 

According to the Center’s recent report, Los Angeles saw a 6.8 percent decline in reported hate crime incidents in the first half of 2018 over the same period last year. Despite this overall decrease, violent hate crimes increased 8.3 percent. Notably, violent crime in general decreased 2.8 percent during this period. Furthermore, the LAPD recorded five anti-Arab hate crime incidents, compared to zero incidents in the first half of 2017. Based on this partial 2018 data from Los Angeles and 11 other major American cities and counties with available data, the Center is forecasting a decline in reported hate crime incidents nationwide for the first half of 2018.

Based on similar data from last year, however, the Center is predicting a nationwide increase of reported hate crime incidents in 2017. The FBI will release 2017 hate crime data submitted from participating agencies in the annual report, Hate Crime Statistics, which we can expect in the final months of 2018. In addition to hate crime data from local police departments, some state agencies have already published 2017 hate crime statistics. In the 17 states that have published 2017 hate crime data, hate crime increased nearly 20 percent. As a point of comparison, the most significant nationwide increase ever reported in federal hate crime statistics occurred in 2001, when, as a result of post-9/11 backlash, reported hate crime incidents surged approximately 21 percent.

Available data from major jurisdictions also suggest an escalation of hate crime in 2017. In the District of Columbia, the Metropolitan Police Department recorded a 67 percent increase, from 107 reported incidents in 2016, to 179 last year. While the state of New York has yet to publish 2017 statistics, the New York Police Department recorded 325 hate crime incidents last year, up from 127 in 2016. A total of 18 anti-Arab hate crime incidents contributed to that 156 percent increase. According to FBI statistics, a single anti-Arab hate crime incident was reported statewide in 2016. That incident occurred in the city of Rochester.

Returning to state-level statistics, 34 anti-Arab hate crime incidents were reported in the five states to publish anti-Arab hate crime data in 2017 statistics so far. If we include the 18 incidents reported in New York City last year, the total exceeds the 51 anti-Arab hate crime incidents recorded in 2016 FBI statistics. AAI Foundation research demonstrates that state-level statistics often exceed the totals recorded in federal data. However, the preliminary data from major cities considered in the Center’s report, in addition to state-level statistics discussed above, suggest the FBI’s 2017 hate crime statistics will likely report a third consecutive annual increase of hate crime incidents nationwide. The data also suggest that federal statistics will report an increase of anti-Arab hate crime incidents. Readers can expect the second edition of our resource guide, Rating the Response, shortly after the publication of the FBI’s annual hate crime statistics this coming November.

Until then, we will continue to advocate an improved response to hate crime in American communities, monitor available hate crime data, and publish content based on our research findings on a regular basis.


          Global Contractor Day & Zimmermann Selects Signal Sciences Next-Gen WAF Fo ...      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

LAS VEGAS (BUSINESS WIRE) #SignalSciences ― (Black Hat 2018 Conference) ― Global construction and

engineering services company, Day & Zimmermann, has implemented Signal

Sciences next-gen WAF to protect external and internal web applications,

providing visibility and protection over a key part of their business.

Signal Sciences CEO Andrew Peterson said, “We are excited to bring such

a well-established brand from yet another industry, which demonstrates

that production web defense is a key part of risk mitigation within any

enterprise.”

Day & Zimmermann operates a large and complex business, which includes

construction, engineering, and staffing services for its global business

and government clients. As part of its operations, leadership made

strategic investments in digital transformation via third party web

applications to accomplish core business functions. In keeping with

their security strategy, they prioritized the protection of these

modern, dynamic web applications as part of a 2018 initiative.

With a lean security team led by Lance Honer, Day & Zimmermann had

certain goals in mind: find a product that didn’t require a lot of

effort to install, and one that didn’t require thorough knowledge of the

application to operate and maintain, since many of the applications are

not built internally. Given Honer’s previous experience with traditional

WAFs, he knew that managing regular expression (regex) based signatures

would create a burden for him and his team. This would require him to

allocate resources and time to learn and scale, taking away focus from

other key security areas. Signal Sciences not only offered quick

installation, but also could be integrated into their application

deployment systems. This enabled automated updates to all production

systems within five minutes.

After a quick implementation of Signal Sciences initially in a staging

environment, Honer decided to put the solution to the test in production

to coincide with a penetration test ― to test the effectiveness of both

Signal Sciences and the pen testers. Anything the pen testers tried to

hit got blocked immediately by Signal Sciences, sealing the deal for

final selection and procurement.

“We’re a traditional IT shop ― we’re not bleeding edge, but we

recognized the need to shore up our risk from externally facing

websites, where we previously didn’t have visibility. The Signal

Sciences install went so incredibly quickly and easily, showing us

immediate value right out of the box,” said Day & Zimmerman’s Manager of

Cybersecurity, Lance Honer. “It provided us with a solution that wasn’t

regex based, since we didn’t have detailed knowledge of inputs to the

application to compose legacy WAF regex signatures.”

          ExtraHop Leads the Charge for Network Traffic Analytics at Black Hat USA      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Following a Spate of Industry Recognition from Leading Analysts,
Enterprise-Scale Network Traffic Analytics Solution Poised to Challenge
the SOC Status Quo

LAS VEGAS (BUSINESS WIRE) #BHUSA2018 ExtraHop, a leading provider of analytics for security, is upending the

SOC status quo at the Black Hat USA 2018 Conference. The company will be

showcasing its Reveal(x)

network traffic analytics (NTA) solution at Booth 1004, demonstrating

how real-time analytics and machine learning eliminate the darkspace

within the enterprise. ExtraHop has received industry recognition from

Gartner, EMA, and Ovum as these and other leading industry organizations

recognize the need for NTA at enterprise scale.


ExtraHop Leads the Charge for Network Traffic Analytics at Black Hat USA

The ExtraHop booth at Black Hat USA will feature a series of industry

thought leadership presentations from Phantom, Ixia, and others speaking

on the rapidly emerging role of NTA in the enterprise SOC, the

importance of

TLS

decryption for security visibility, and the power of

orchestration automation. Special sessions will occur throughout the day

at Booth 1004 on August 8 and 9, 2018.

“Security teams are drowning in alerts and many are left without the

resources they need to stay ahead of attackers,” said Bryce Hein, SVP of

Marketing at ExtraHop. “Threat hunting in the modern attack landscape is

not possible without enterprise-class network traffic analytics, making

NTA a must-have for the modern enterprise SOC.”

ExtraHop Reveal(x) significantly reduces dwell time by highlighting

late-stage attack activities and shining light on the darkspace

in the enterprise―the hard-to-see areas of the network along the

east-west corridor. Through comprehensive analysis of network traffic,

Reveal(x) automatically identifies attack behavior, delivering

high-fidelity insights into threats to critical assets. By merging

insights into investigative workflows, Reveal(x) helps security

operations teams shrink detection and response times, disrupt threat

activity, and identify ways to reduce the attack surface.

Analyst Recognition

ExtraHop was listed as a Sample Vendor in the Gartner “

Hype

” report. ExtraHop was

named in the Network Traffic Analysis (NTA) category. According to the

Gartner report, “NTA solutions are valuable tools that assist network

security professionals in the detection of compromised endpoints and

targeted attacks that have not been seen in the past. These tools have

limited blocking ability, or none at all (because they are implemented

outside of the line of traffic), but they are effective in shortening

the incident response window and reducing the dwell time of malware.” 1

The recent analyst report from EMA titled:

Radar

identified

ExtraHop Reveal(x) as a “Value Leader” and “Vendor to Watch,” noting

that, “Reveal(x) exhibited strong functionality due to its impressive

feature differentiation, out-of-box reporting, and high-performance

sustained data capture and processing.” 2

Customers Choose Reveal(x)

Global 2000 customers are already using ExtraHop Network Traffic

Analytics to modernize their programs and protect their enterprises. A

top

is using Reveal(x)

as the cornerstone of their next-generation SOC, while other ExtraHop

customers report improving their security visibility by as much as 75

percent and reducing time to detect threats by as much as 95 percent. 3

Industry Accolades

Reveal(x) has also won numerous cybersecurity industry awards in the

last six months including the

          Dept of Homeland Security discovers security flaws in millions of US smartphones      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Researchers funded by the Department of Homeland Security say that they have discovered major security vulnerabilities likely to affect millions of US smartphones …


Dept of Homeland Security discovers security flaws in millions of US smartphones
NordVPN

The flaws have been found in unspecified phones sold by Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint and other carriers. It seems likely that the affected phones are Android devices, butsome vulnerabilities have been found to affect iOS devices also, and the DHS isn’t yet saying one way or the other.

FifthDomain reports that the privilege-escalation flaws allow a complete take-over of devices, including access to emails and text messages without the owner’s knowledge.

The research was conducted by Kryptowire, a Virginia-based mobile security firm and funded through the Critical Infrastructure Resilience Institute, a Department of Homeland Security research center.

The flaws allow a user “to escalate privileges and take over the device,” Vincent Sritapan, a program manager at the Department of Homeland Security’s Science and Technology Directorate told Fifth Domain during the Black Hat conference in Las Vegas.

The vulnerabilities are built into devices before a customer purchases the phone.

Officials have so far declined to name the makes and models of affected phones, but the numbers cited suggest that they will include popular ones. Manufacturers were informed back in February, and it is expected that more details will be revealed to the public later this week.

The research was prompted by the discover of a security flaw in Blu phones last year. Amazon briefly stopped selling the phones following reports of a serious security issue, which was soon dismissed by the company as a ‘false alarm.’ It appears this dismissal may have been premature.

Separately, Reuters reports that Samsung Galaxy S7 phones have been found to be susceptible to the Meltdown vulnerability, which could allow an attacker access to data processed by the CPU. Samsung originally said that it had patched its phones against Meltdown in January and again in July, but it seems that these patches have not proven sufficient.

          Elvis Week Celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the "'68 Comeback Special"      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Here's a thought exercise. As rock-and-roll fans descend on Graceland for the double celebration of Elvis Week 2018 and the 50th Anniversary of Elvis' "'68 Comeback" TV special, try to imagine what Memphis might be like today had Singer Presents ... Elvis (as the career-defining NBC special was officially named) been a wholesome Christmas variety show instead of the juggernaut rock and gospel performance that it was. Imagine if Presley's manipulative manager, Colonel Tom Parker, had gotten his way: There would have been no iconic black leather suit. There would have been no gospel medley backed by Darlene Love and the Blossoms. And no reunion of Elvis and his original Sun Studio guitarist, Scotty Moore and drummer DJ Fontana.

If the Colonel had gotten the TV special of his dreams, the alleged King of Rock-and-Roll would have crooned his way through seasonal favorites like "I'll Be Home for Christmas" and an old Frankie Laine song called "I Believe."

"To this day, I don't know why he thought 'I Believe' was a Christmas song because it's not," says the show's producer/director Steve Binder, in recounting his first awkward encounter with Parker.

Binder had been a logical pick to handle Elvis' return to TV, having helmed the landmark The T.A.M.I. Show, a 1964 rock and soul concert film with a dozen emerging British and American acts, including The Rolling Stones, James Brown, The Supremes, The Beach Boys, and Marvin Gaye.

Still, credentials aside, the young director had to make a good impression on ths Colonel. Otherwise the manipulative Parker wouldn't permit a private one-on-one meeting with Elvis.

"I truck out to MGM Studios, where Elvis had just finished a movie, and where the Colonel's offices were," Binder told the Flyer in a recent telephone interview. "And the Colonel hands me a quarter-inch audio tape of 20 Christmas songs that Elvis had recorded and sent out as a gift to disc jockeys all over America as a present. It's got a picture of Elvis surrounded by holly and berries. He told me, 'This is the show that NBC and myself have decided on.'"

Binder had other ideas.

"In my head, instantly, I knew this was a show I'm not going to do," he says. "So I wrote off the meeting. Drove back to my offices on Sunset."

By the time Binder arrived back at an office he shared with his partner, music producer Bones Howe, there was a surprise message waiting for him: "Elvis is going to be in your office tomorrow at 4 p.m."

"If you're looking for trouble, just look right in my face," Presley snarls in the tight opening shot of Singer Presents ... . And it's not like the audience watching at home ever had any real choice in the matter, since the singer's famously sullen mug is framed in an extreme close-up, floating in pitch black background with just a splash of red at his throat.

This is nobody's Christmas show; it's Elvis daring fans and critics alike to judge him — to gaze into the bright, blue, bedroom eyes of a massively disruptive artist from the previous decade, and determine whether or not he was still the rebel rocker from Memphis, or if he'd become Hollywood's toothless Teddy bear, cranking out another round of cheap, non-threatening product.

You'd never know it to look at him, as the camera pulled back and the tune changed from Jerry Leiber & Mike Stoller's "Evil" to Jerry Reed's "Guitar Man," but nobody wanted to know the answer to this question more than Elvis.

"What if it fails?" Elvis asked Binder during the first closed-door meeting with his new director. Money for making Elvis movies was drying up, and the special had only come about in the first place as part of a deal the Colonel had struck with NBC while seeking backers to make more.  

"If it fails, your career is over," Binder answered, bluntly. "Nobody will forget the success you had in your early recording career and your movies, but TV is instant. The minute you appear on TV, everybody has an opinion the next morning. If you're successful, all the doors will open and you'll have any choice you want. But it's a gamble, and I can't promise you it's going to be successful."

Presley distrusted TV. The medium had burned him in the past, abetting the moral panic that followed rock-and-roll's big bang in the 1950s. But he was also frustrated in his role as King of B Musicals. He trusted Binder's unvarnished answer and felt comfortable in the director's office. Gold records on the wall, from Howe's work with groups like The 5th Dimension and The Association, made Elvis feel comfortable enough to drop an unsurprising confession. "The recording studio's my turf," he told Binder, allowing that he'd always felt more at home behind a microphone than in front of a movie camera.

"You make a record," Binder said. "I'll put pictures to it."  

Elvis had one personal request. He wanted to put "These Boots Are Made for Walking" arranger and session guitarist Billy Strange in charge of the special's music. Binder agreed instantly.

"This was really the first thing Elvis did outside the womb," Binder says, explaining why he didn't hesitate in regard to his star's one major request. "[Elvis] joined our world instead of me joining his."

There was one small problem with Elvis' first choice though. Strange was working on an album with Nancy Sinatra, and the studio was pressuring him to complete it as fast as possible. When, after several prompts, the over-extended Strange still failed to deliver Elvis' lead sheets in time to start rehearsals, Binder fired him.

"You can't fire me," Strange told Binder. "I've known Elvis a lot better and for a lot longer than you."

"Fine," Binder answered. "Then I'll be gone and you'll be there. But one of us is not going to be there."

Colonel Tom backed the original plan and said Elvis wouldn't show up for rehearsal if Strange wasn't there. Nevertheless, Binder moved forward, convincing New York composer/conductor Billy Goldenberg to take over.

"That changed Elvis' musical life, period," Binder says. Before that, Elvis had never sung live with an orchestra before. He'd go into the studio to record movie soundtracks with his rhythm section only. Then, additional musicians would be brought in to overdub all the parts.

"He loved every note he heard, and he bonded with all the musicians," says Binder, who hired Phil Spector's favorite studio musicians, the Wrecking Crew, and brought in The T.A.M.I. Show and Shindig alums the Blossoms to sing backup.

Blossoms singer and Rock-and-Roll Hall of Fame inductee Darlene Love remembers meeting Elvis in the recording studio. "That's where we met Elvis and became friends with him," she told the Flyer. "Especially me because of my gospel background."

During spare moments, Elvis, who'd already cut a pair of acclaimed gospel albums (How Great Thou Art and His Hand in Mine) grabbed his guitar and asked the Blossoms what their favorite sacred songs were.

"We'd be over in the corner with Elvis just having a good time, and I think sometimes everybody got a little bit angry with us for taking all of his time," Love says. "He loved what he called 'the hymns of the church.' Songs like 'Precious Lord Take My Hand' and 'Amazing Grace' and 'How Great Thou Art.' He would sing the leads and we'd do the background. He would ask us, 'Is this key all right?' And you know, whatever key it was in was all right with us."

Binder was fascinated with the Elvis he saw backstage, singing with the Blossoms or casually jamming in his dressing room with friends.

"I said to myself, instantly, this is better than all the big production numbers we're doing on stage," Binder recalls. "We've got to get a camera in there."

But the Colonel, still expecting "I'll Be Home for Christmas" to show up in the set, inserted himself again. He wouldn't allow cameras into the dressing room under any circumstances.

"It was insane," Binder says. "This was the magic! I knew if we were putting out a disc, this is the one that would go platinum. So I just kept pounding the Colonel and hounding him every day. And finally he broke down. I don't think he was happy that he did it. But he said, 'Okay, Bindel [sic], if you want to recreate it on stage, you can try that. But I won't guarantee it'll get into the show.'"

"I don't think they realized that part was going to be so big," Love says of the musical improv reuniting Elvis with Moore and Fontana on numbers like "That's All Right Mama."

When Singer Presents ... first aired in 1968, it was an hour special cut down to about 48 minutes for commercials. Ratings were gigantic. "It was the first time, in primetime, that one guy did the whole show himself without guest stars," Binder says.

Though he still had a few feature films left in him, Singer Presents ... marked Elvis' transition away from Hollywood and a return to his roots, touring and recording. He'd take lessons learned from the TV special on the road with him, all the way to Vegas.

When Elvis died in Memphis in 1977, NBC decided to produce a tribute show with Viva Las Vegas co-star Ann-Margret hosting. “They sent a gopher down to the studio catacombs to track down the Elvis Presley special,” Binder says. In a twist of fate, the guy who went down to the basement pulled Binder’s 90-minute director’s cut version off-the-shelf. “That’s when they started airing the 90-minute version,” he says. “A lot depended on luck and fate. I couldn’t be happier.”

Recently, there was a loud buzz about the Elvis era finally drawing to a close. Las Vegas was losing interest. First-generation fans were dying, changing the market, as rare collectables became less rare. The Sun Records television series failed to earn a second season. But 2018 brought a pair of critically acclaimed documentaries — HBO's exhaustive two-part The Searcher, and Eugene Jarecki's identity-obsessed The King. And between its fancy new facilities and the most ambitious Elvis Week schedule in the event's history, Graceland also seems to be ready for another closeup, daring us all to look Presley in the eye one more time.

Binder, Billy Goldenstein, Darlene Love, and other artists connected to the "Comeback Special" are coming to Memphis to participate in Elvis week events at Graceland.

Love Connection

A Q&A with Darlene Love of the Blossoms

Darlene Love may not be a household name, but the Rock-and-Roll Hall of Fame-inducted vocalist can be heard on some of the most iconic recordings of the rock-and-roll era. As a member of the Blossoms, she was a regular on the seminal TV show Shindig and performed in The TA.M.I. Show. She and fellow Blossoms Fanita James and Jean King can be seen performing alongside Elvis during the "'68 Comeback Special" gospel medley. Love will perform an Elvis week concert Monday, August 13th.

Flyer: I know the Blossoms wanted to be recording stars in their own right, but was there some sense of security in working sessions and singing backing vocals?

Darlene Love: That's very accurate. Because there weren't really any black groups at the time that were doing this. It was unheard of for them to be doing session work. Most of the sessions were contracted through our union, AFTRA (American Federation of Television and Radio Artists), and most of the people in AFTRA were white singers. They'd call them and put together three or four girls. They didn't have groups. But we already had a sound. So they could depend on us to have the sound they wanted. Therefore, we became bigger than life doing session work.

Phil Spector hires the Blossoms to sing "He's a Rebel," then releases it as a Crystals single.

We didn't go in there to do it as a group. We went in as a session. And I got paid extra for singing the lead on it. We knew it was going to be a Crystals record. It wasn't a surprise. The surprise was when we signed with Phil, it was supposed to be my record. But he put that one out under the name of the Crystals too.

But it was a surprise to the Crystals, also, right?

A big surprise. They were out on the road working, and the record was on the charts. They didn't even know the record was out.

Can you tell me about how Elvis would improvise with singers and musicians between takes or after rehearsals?

It was his down-time. Like going to your room and watching TV. It takes a while to come down after you've done a show like that. And [the musicians] would all just sit around and sing gospel songs. Not rhythm and blues or rock-and-roll, but gospel. I've been invited to come to the 50th anniversary with my group and my singers. We're going down to Graceland to celebrate the "'68 Comeback Special." And most of that show's going to be gospel.

Cold comfort seems like the wrong way to describe this latest news. But as we sink into August and the dog days of Summer, maybe we should all be thankful to live in Memphis, and not one of the nine American cities even beastlier, according to a new list of America's sweatiest cities created by Honeywell Fans with Environmental Health & Engineering consultants.

The winners are: 1. Orlando, Florida — As hot and bug-infested as Walt Disney's Orlando World may seem, it's easy to maintain a smile and cheerful demeanor by reminding yourself that you're not in Tampa. 2. New Orleans, Louisiana — Nothing produces more sweat for less effort, than standing roadside on Carrollton, waiting for a streetcar. But at least it's not Orlando. 3. Phoenix, Arizona — Where dry heat meets dry heaves. 4. Dallas, Texas — Like a prison movie where the sadistic warden punishes inmates by locking them in a boiler room. 5. Las Vegas, Nevada — Like somebody covered Dallas in glitter and feathers and stuck it in a sauna. 6. Oklahoma City, Oklahoma — Heat like a blazing fist that reaches down your throat and rips out your tongue. 7. Kansas City, Missouri — Forget the heat, try the brisket. 8. Austin, Texas — Cooler than Dallas in most regards. 9. Atlanta, Georgia — Would be one of America's most miserable rush hours if not for a proper bar at every exit. 10. Memphis, Tennessee — Paradise (comparatively). And besides, who's got time for weather talk when there are Bird Scooters to complain about?

          After A Vow To End 'This American Carnage,' A Year Of Deadly Violence      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
President Trump took office in January, vowing in a dark-toned inaugural to end what he described as "this American carnage" fueled by gangs, drugs and street violence. America did see historic carnage in 2017, but critics say it had far less to do with gangs and drugs than with disturbed individuals with easy access to firearms. October saw the deadliest mass shooting by an individual in modern U.S. history. A gunman holed up in a suite at the Mandalay Bay casino hotel in Las Vegas and rained gunfire on a country music concert across from the hotel. The attack left 58 people dead and more than 500 others injured. It's still a mystery to investigators what sparked the gunman's carefully planned assault. Many of those who survived the gunfire are struggling with the aftermath. "What bothers me more than the motive, or lack of motive, is lack of information," survivor Melissa Barham recently told Weekend Edition .

          Estas son las conversaciones que lo petaban en los 90: algunas podríamos recuperarlas, pero de otras te vas a reír       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Conversaciones Amigos Egb

La popularización de internet cambió el mundo, es una obviedad que lo digamos a estas alturas. Y también cambió, para siempre, las conversaciones con amigos. Mucho más desde que apareció internet móvil y tenemos cualquier respuesta al alcance de la mano. Para bien o para mal.

Hasta hace pocos años, de cañas con amigos, podíamos pasarnos un par de horas enzarzados en la duda de si es más grande la provincia de Cáceres o la de Badajoz. Hoy, alguien se sacaría el iPhone del bolsillo y nos aclararía que Badajoz tiene 21.766 km², lo que la convierte en la provincia más extensa de España, mientras que Cáceres solo tiene 19.868 km² y se sitúa en segundo lugar. Fin de la discusión. Mejor pedir otra cerveza.

Conversaciones Amigos Egb1

Así que, dado que las conversaciones sobre datos objetivos las tenemos resueltas a golpe de Wikipedia, os proponemos un reto: retomar los grandes debates de los 90. Sin móviles, sin que ningún influencer nos haya dado su opinión, sin que ningún tuitero inicie la diatriba. ¿Y de qué hablábamos en los bares, los descansos de la facultad o los paseos por la playa hace veinte o veinticinco años? Estos son algunos ejemplos:

¿Te acostarías con Robert Redford por un millón de dólares?

En 1993, hace exactamente veinticinco años, se estrenó la película Una proposición indecente. Se trataba de un drama romántico algo simplón, pero que dejó en el aire un debate que duró meses. La trama nos presentaba a un matrimonio joven (interpretado por Demi Moore y Woody Harrelson) que pasa por dificultades económicas y que se va a Las Vegas a jugarse sus últimos ahorros. Allí conocen a un multimillonario al que da vida Robert Redford... y surge la incógnita.

Una Proposicion Indecente

El multimillonario en cuestión les ofrece un millón de dólares a cambio de pasar una noche con ella. Y el debate está servido: ¿te acostarías con Robert Redford a cambio de un millón de dólares? O mejor, traducido al mundo millennial: ¿te acostarías con Ryan Reynolds a cambio de cinco millones de dólares? ¿Incluso estando casada? ¿Preferirías el beneplácito o la oposición de tu marido? No podemos negar que el debate da para mucho.

¿Con quién te identificas más de los personajes de Friends?

¿Hay algo más noventero que hablar de Friends? Si hay un icono de esa generación que siempre identificaremos de un solo vistazo, es esa serie que nos presentó a seis amigos, entre los veinte y los treinta, viviendo en Nueva York. Una serie que a nadie le es ajena, sea de la generación que sea, gracias a Netflix y reposiciones varias.

Friends

Pero había un tema en los noventa que todo fan de Friends comentaba: ¿con qué personaje te identificas más? ¿Con Monica y su obsesión por la limpieza y el orden? ¿Con Chandler y su uso del humor para evitar situaciones incómodas? ¿Con Phoebe y sus locuras? ¿Con Joey y su promiscuidad? ¿Con Rachel y su sueño de triunfar en el mundo de la moda? ¿O con Ross y su tendencia al matrimonio fracasado?

¿Cuál es tu top five de películas favoritas?

Si hiciéramos esta pregunta a un grupo de amigos hace veinte o veinticinco años, seguro que entre las respuestas habría algún Dirty Dancing, Footloose, La guerra de las galaxias, E.T., Flashdance, Pretty Woman o Grease. Y aunque algunas de ellas sigan vigentes como favoritas y casi pelis de culto para muchos, quizá lo que ha cambiado es el debate.

Guerra Galaxias

Porque ¿seríamos capaces hoy en día, en estos tiempos de Netflix, HBO, Amazon Prime, Fiesta del Cine, etc. de limitar nuestra selección solo a cinco? Es más, ¿de verdad seguiríamos hablando de nuestras películas favoritas o se nos iría el tema a las series?

¿Puede un enfermo de SIDA ser deportista profesional?

El 7 de noviembre de 1991, Magic Johnson, el que por entonces era probablemente el mejor jugador de baloncesto del mundo y estrella de Los Angeles Lakers de la NBA, anunció al mundo que era portador del VIH. Fue la noticia deportiva de la década. Y el inicio de un debate que puso de relieve que aún le quedaba a la sociedad mucho por aprender sobre el virus del SIDA.

Magic Johnson

Magic se retiró del baloncesto poco después, no sin antes haber vivido la controversia de que algunos compañeros de profesión se negaran a compartir cancha con él por el riesgo a contagiarse de «un virus mortal». Y el debate saltó a la calle: ¿puede un deportista continuar con su profesión a pesar de tener SIDA? La duda que surge, veintisiete años después, es... ¿tendríamos este debate hoy en día?

¿Es infidelidad el sexo oral?

En 1998 (casi) no se habló de otra cosa. Los medios de comunicación de todo el mundo se hicieron eco del impeachment por el cual el presidente de los Estados Unidos, Bill Clinton, estuvo a punto de perder su cargo, debido a las relaciones que había mantenido entre 1995 y 1997 con la becaria de la Casa Blanca Monica Lewinsky.

Clinton Lewinsky

El juicio contra Clinton fue por perjurio, ya que él había declarado con anterioridad que no había mantenido relaciones sexuales con Lewinsky. Solo había recibido sexo oral por parte de ella. Hubo debates de todo tipo (político, social y familiar) sobre el Monicagate, pero una pregunta flotó en el aire durante meses: ¿es sexo el sexo oral? ¿Es infidelidad recibirlo estando casado?

¿Puede haber violación dentro del matrimonio?

El 23 de junio de 1993, Lorena Bobbit le cercenó el pene a su marido, John, con un cuchillo de cocina, después de que él, en estado de embriaguez, abusara presuntamente de ella (aunque posteriormente fue declarado inocente del cargo de violación). Fue la respuesta de ella, según sus propias palabras, a años de violencia física y abusos sexuales dentro del matrimonio.

Lorena Bobbit

El tema fue motivo de chascarrillo a comienzos de los noventa. Si hubiera sido hoy en día, habríamos tenido memes hasta hartarnos. Pero también sacó a la palestra una pregunta que quizá hoy en día ya no nos hacemos (por suerte): ¿existe la violación dentro del matrimonio? Muchos no comprendieron la acusación de Lorena de violación porque John era su marido y ese debate presidió tertulias durante muchos meses.

¿Somos todos bisexuales?

Muchos de los debates que surgían en los noventa venían precedidos de un gran estreno cinematográfico. Eran los tiempos en que las películas se estrenaban en Estados Unidos meses antes que en España y el debate era, en ocasiones, parte polémica y parte promoción. Es lo que ocurrió con Instinto básico (1992), una película en la que la protagonista, una afamada escritora sospechosa de asesinato, mantenía relaciones sexuales con el detective al cargo del caso, mientras tenía una pareja que era mujer.

Instinto Basico

La controversia alcanzó a todos los grupos sociales. Los colectivos LGTB+ protestaron por la imagen que de ellos daba la cinta. Los espectadores más puritanos se manifestaban ante los cines para censurar la emisión. Y en la calle se hablaba, quizá por primera vez, de bisexualidad. ¿Existe o no? ¿Puede alguien enamorarse y sentirse atraído por igual por un hombre o por una mujer... o eso es solo vicio? ¿O quizá es que todos somos bisexuales? Y la gran duda: ¿nos lo seguiríamos preguntando hoy en día?

¿Cabía Leonardo DiCaprio en aquella tabla?

No todos los debates tenían por qué ser tan serios. O sí, porque este habla de la supervivencia de uno de los héroes cinematográficos de la época, Jack Dawson, el personaje interpretado por Leonardo DiCaprio en la película Titanic, de 1997.

Titanic

Para quien no la haya visto, si es que hay alguien que no lo haya hecho, al final de la cinta el barco se hunde (esto no es un spoiler, ¿verdad?) y Rose, su enamorada, se salva subiéndose a una tabla de madera que flota en las frías aguas del Atlántico Norte. Y todos nos hicimos una pregunta en aquel momento: ¿acaso no cabía también Jack en la tabla? Veintiún años después, continúa habiendo debate (e incluso pruebas empíricas).

¿Fue un accidente la muerte de Diana de Gales?

El 31 de agosto de 1997 el mundo se despertaba con un sobresalto: la princesa Diana de Gales había muerto en un accidente de tráfico en el túnel del Alma, en París, junto a su novio Dodi Al-Fayed. Solo sobrevivió al accidente uno de los ocupantes del vehículo y la noticia saltó a todas las portadas de los medios. Había muerto la princesa del pueblo y acababa de nacer el mito.

Diana Gales

Pronto una idea cundió en las mentes de los más malpensados: qué apropiada era aquella muerte para la monarquía británica, de la que Diana había demostrado ser un verso libre, con su divorcio, sus declaraciones en televisión, sus relaciones con otros hombres y su popularidad, que superaba con creces la de su exmarido, el heredero de la Corona. Mohamed Al-Fayed, padre de Dodi y propietario de los míticos almacenes Harrods dio voz a la teoría de la conspiración y aún hoy muchos se preguntan: ¿tuvo algo que ver la Casa Real británica en la muerte de Diana o fue realmente un accidente?

¿El teléfono móvil nos dará o nos quitará libertad?

A finales de los años noventa, el teléfono móvil dejó de ser un objeto de lujo y se convirtió en algo asequible para casi cualquier bolsillo. Atrás fue quedando la imagen de aquellos móviles enormes asociada a hombres de negocios y pijos varios, e incluso quienes eran más reacios al principio se acabaron rindiendo a la necesidad de hacerse con uno. Pero había un tema que se hablaba mucho en las conversaciones entre amigos: ¿el móvil nos quitará libertad?

Movil Libertad

A favor de este argumento, estaban quienes decían que nos convertía en personas fácilmente localizables; en contra, quienes sostenían que, a diferencia del fijo, el móvil no daba información de dónde nos encontrábamos y, además, se podía apagar. Han pasado veinte años y mil innovaciones tecnológicas y todavía no lo tenemos del todo claro... ¿Nos ha quitado la tecnología móvil libertad?

¿Estaban Rachel y Ross tomándose un descanso?

Sí, retomamos Friends porque de ahí llegó la gran pregunta de los noventa. La pregunta por excelencia. La que aún hoy en día divide a quienes vieron la serie hace veinte años, a quienes no han dejado de verla en las sucesivas reposiciones y a quienes la han descubierto en plena era millennial.

Ross Rachel Descanso

Una pareja discute. Uno de los dos propone «tomarse un descanso». No pactan más condiciones que esa. El otro miembro de la pareja sale esa noche y se acuesta con una tercera persona. El asunto dio para debate y más debate a lo largo de las siete temporadas que aún quedaban de la serie... y también para que todos los fans se posicionaran claramente en un #TeamRoss o un #TeamRachel. ¿No os preguntáis de cuál formarían parte vuestros amigos?

Este es el reto que os proponemos, millennials: sacad estos temas una tarde con amigos, dejad los móviles a un lado y permitid que el debate fluya. Será una experiencia inolvidable, un viaje al pasado, a las conversaciones de vuestros padres o vuestros hermanos mayores. Y lo mejor de todo... ayudará a que conozcáis mucho mejor a quien tenéis enfrente.

          A Disreputable Fringe, by Pierre Lemieux      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The overlap of the libertarian and populist fringe includes a number of persons, websites, and organizations that imagine improbable conspiracies, embrace delusions, fabricate facts, relish bigotry, show no respect for the truth, and sell snake oil (sometimes literally).

Alex Jones and his Infowars.com provide illustrations. I think however that the bumping of Infowars from some platforms of Apple, YouTube, and Facebook says as much about the unquestioned orthodoxy of the bumper as of the bumpee. (I don’t claim that Jones himself is a libertarian, but he seems to have some sympathies on the libertarian fringe.)

According to Texas Monthly of July 31, a motion of Jones’s lawyer to dismiss a defamation suit brought by the parents of a six-year-old victim of the Sandy Hook school massacre states:

No reasonable reader or listener would interpret Mr. Jones’ statements regarding the possibility of a “blue-screen” being used as a verifiably false statement of fact, and even if it is verifiable as false, the entire context in which it was made discloses that the statements are mere opinions “masquerading as a fact.”

The “blue screen” or “green screen” refers to a video technique that allows for changing the background of an interview, possibly (but not necessarily) for misleading the audience. The point is that Mr. Jones is apparently willing to admit that the “facts” he peddles are “mere opinions ‘masquerading as a fact’.” This sort of “facts” is the bread and butter of conspiracy theories.

After the tragic Sandy Hook massacre on December 14, 2012, when 20 children and six adults were killed, conspiracy theorists, including Jones, claimed that it was either orchestrated or staged by the government to serve as an excuse for strengthening gun control. This has led to the indecent mobbing of the parents of the six-year-old victim: they have been threatened by true believers who accuse them of being part of the conspiracy. Hence the current defamation suit. A New York Times story is also quite revealing.

Similar conspiracies are also in vogue regarding the Las Vegas mass killing of October 1, 2017. Jones claims it was an Islamic terror attack.

A “conspiracy theory” works as follows. It presents an accumulation of small facts said to support the alleged conspiracy. These facts are sometimes unrelated to the event in question, sometimes coincidental, sometimes false. They may be rumors that circulated as the event unfolded but were later proved incorrect. They are based on no credible outside source and are costly to check. Moreover, the refutation of any single of these facts would not be sufficient to disprove the conspiracy. At any rate, invalidation of a conspiracy “fact” would be explained away by another conspiratorial element, just as any non-conforming trajectory in the Ptolemaic system could arguably be explained by adding another epicycle. In short, a good conspiracy theory is built in such a way as to be non-refutable.

For the gullible who really want to believe, these facts draw a convincing picture. They can be debunked at a cost in time and other resources, as illustrated by Snopes in the case of Sandy Hook or by a delicious YouTube video in the case of the moon landing.

This is not to say that conspiracies don’t exist. The real world or any spontaneous order is full of localized (and mostly legitimate) conspiracies, just as any conspiracy involving multiple persons and operations is a little spontaneous order in itself. This last reason reminds us that it is in the interest of any participant in an illegal conspiracy to rat on his co-conspirators before they implicate him, which is precisely what the paradigmatic prisoner’s dilemma is about. But conspiracy theorists ignore individual incentives.

They also ignore credible sources—such as the mainstream media whose reputations have monetary value. Indeed, credible sources (“the media”) are presented as part of the conspiracy. Here again, conspiracy theorists ignore incentives, such as the incentives of any journalist to win a Pulitzer Prize and of any media owner to make a big money coup. If anybody had been effective at a conspiracy, it would have been Richard Nixon.

We should be on the lookout for illegitimate conspiracies, but they must be incentive-compatible.

Interestingly, conspiracy theorists who claim they are revealing complex operations that would send the conspirators to jail for life don’t fear for their own personal security. If the government, in order to undermine the Second Amendment, is willing to organize mass killings or stage fake massacres and obstruct justice in the following investigations, why wouldn’t its agents eliminate the individuals who disclose their crimes?

Of course, tyranny is worse than conspiracy theories. The cost of free speech in terms of snake oil is certainly lower than its benefits in preventing tyranny. Good arguments exist against defamation laws themselves, if only because people are likely to become more gullible if the state claims to protect them against false information. Another reason is that silencing peddlers of false facts will bring more attention to them and make loose rumors more dangerous.

All this is not reason for libertarians to serve as a moral caution for the lunatic, fact-free fringe. These lunatics are giving a Juda kiss to serious challengers of Leviathan.

          Black Hat 2018: Google’s Tabriz Talks Complex Security Landscapes      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

LAS VEGAS The complexity of the cybersecurity landscape is at an all-time high, with security researchers, vendors, third-party ecosystems and even governments all trying to come to a consensus for making the cyber-world a safer place.

For security experts, navigating these choppy and crowded waters means embracing partnership across these stakeholders, according to Parisa Tabriz, director of engineering at Google.

During her keynote today at Black Hat, she advocated taking a proactive approach to locking down security, with solid, long-term plans and a policy of reaching out to other participants in the fight to make things more secure ― she cited Google’s march to make the web 100% HTTPS and its Project Zero vulnerability disclosure team as good examples. Identifying an issue and then implementing a well-thought-out approach to tackling it, rather than randomly swatting at threats as they come up, should be an imperative, she noted.

“To be successful, we have to stop playing a game of Whack-a-Mole and we have to do three things,” she said during her Black Hat talk. “First, we need to identify and tackle the root cause of problems; second, we have to be more intentional in how we pursue long-term defensive projects; and finally, we have to invest in full, proactive defensive projects.”


Black Hat 2018: Google’s Tabriz Talks Complex Security Landscapes
When it comes to identifying and tackling the root causes of security issues, Tabriz said that vendors and the security community alike need to look at the cause and effect behind the threats themselves, including how they arise and how they are disclosed.

For instance, Tabriz said, for a remote code execution (RCE) bug, the vendor would needsto identify why the vulnerability led to RCE, why it hasn’t been discovered earlier and how long it might take to update end users (and why).

Google Project Zero has taken important steps to proactively address software flaws, including the introduction of a 90-day disclosure policy for vulnerabilities. Tabriz said that this has had the effect of putting pressure on vendors who would otherwise lack an incentive to prioritize security.Project Zero, founded in 2014, has since then has reported over 1,400 vulnerabilities, she said.

“Project Zero aims to advance the understanding of offensive security to inform and improve defensive strategies,” she said.“Speaking to those short deadlines over the years has helped with better strategy, innovating, and investing in institutional and structural change ― both technical and organizational.”

This ultimately has led to more transparency and collaboration, Tabriz said and more results, including, according to Google’s research, one large unnamed vendor doubling its security updates, and another improving patch response time by as much as 40 percent.

She noted that another way to tackle the sometimes seemingly-impossible task of promoting secure measures in a complex landscape isto become more structured and methodical when it comes to how projects are pursued, by identifying milestones and working toward them and celebrating along the way.

On this front, she highlighted Google’s initiatives to encourage the web community to switch from HTTP to HTTPS protocol for web pages, so that site traffic is encrypted and protected against malware injection and eavesdropping. Google recently updatedChrome so that users visiting an HTTP website will see an easily noticeable warning label that the site is “not secure.” This is the latest in a series of steps that have methodically rolled out Google announced in 2016 that it would be encouraging encryption on the web by slowly and steadily moving in on HTTP sites with warning notifications.

“A change like this had to be gradual and intentional,” Tabriz said, adding that team worked to achieve goals like floating the UI proposal publicly, publishing a user experience research paper and publishing an HTTPS transparency report.

Finally, investing and committing to bold projects will help solidify security measures across the board, she noted; as seen in Google’s efforts with Chrome site isolation.Googlerecently introduced new security mitigationsfor its Chrome browser to defend against recently discovered Spectre variants. But the efforts that ultimately ended up mitigating these attacks were in development long before Spectre and Meltdown side-channel flaws first came to light in January, Tabriz said.

Above all, looking for active engagement with other types of stakeholders should be a directive, she said.

“Evenwhen the benefits aren’t immediately clear, we need to communicate upwards and outwards, and get people involved in security,” she explained.“We need to build out coalitions of champions and supports beyond security experts. The world’s reliance on safe technology is increasing, [and] we have to be more ambitious and strategic.”

Jeff Moss, the founder of Black Hat, agreed, noting that how this works in practice is still being uncovered. He cited third-party partner agreements, and even Facebook’s Cambridge Analytica scandal, has gone to show how business models are “running smack into political models.”

“Business models connect the worlds’ users, but are now dealing with governments who may want to control content for the stability of society,” he said from the stage at Black Hat. “There will be some conflict there… we’re seeing that play out on a global scale.”


          Online Stock Trading Has Serious Security Holes      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

It’s never been easier to trade stocks; just a few taps or clicks will do the trick. But most of the platforms that millions of market participants rely on to move their money suffer from cybersecurity shortcomings, new research warns. As if stocks weren’t risky enough already.

A new report from Alejandro Hernández, a security consultant at IOActive, found that nearly all of the 40 major online trading platforms he investigated had at least some form of vulnerability. While they range widely in severity and scope, the overall picture is of an industry that has not taken security measures proportional to the sensitive information involved. Hernández will present his research at the Black Hat security conference in Las Vegas on Thursday.

Hernández analyzed 16 desktop applications, 34 mobile apps, and 30 websites, comprising 40 trading platforms in all. That includes major legacy players like Fidelity and Charles Schwab, mobile-first upstarts like Robinhood, and less common names like Kraken and Poloniex. And while some companies, like Schwab and Merrill Edge, earned mostly high marks for their security hygiene, the overall picture seems bleak.

Well over half of the desktop applications Hernández examined, for instance, transmitted at least some data―things like balances, portfolios, and personal information―unencrypted. That leaves traders vulnerable to a potential attack from someone on the same Wi-Fi network, who could observe that information and potentially intercept and alter it using a fairly straightforward man-in-the-middle attack.

Lack of robust encryption seems endemic to the industry.

Also troubling: Several mobile apps and a handful of desktop applications stored passwords unencrypted locally, or sent them to logs in plain text. With access to the device, either physical or through malware, an attacker could steal that password, then use the newfound account access to, say, add a new bank account and transfer money to it. Two-factor authentication would prevent that scenario, but while most of the web platforms Hernández looked at offer it, they don’t enable it by default. That’s a shame, especially given how much sensitive information a desktop trading app, in particular, is privy to.

Lack of robust encryption seems endemic to the industry, but narrower issues show up as well. Hernández found that on the web platforms of companies like Charles Schwab and E-Trade, logging out didn’t immediately end the session on the server side. If you think of authentication as a handshake, in other words, the site leaves its arm extended after you’ve already walked away. If someone steals your session token, they could get in.

“There are hundreds of ways that an attacker could intercept your communication,” Hernández says. The attacker could trick you to click on a malicious link that allows a man-in-the-middle attack, for example. Imagine the attacker has your session ID. If the authentic user realizes he was compromised, the user would log out." Ideally, the server would end the session at that point, too, overwriting the ID and stopping any unauthorized snooping. But if the session doesn't immediately end on the server side―and Hernández found that some sessions stayed active for as long as a few hours―then the attacker is free to continue as he pleases.

Another vulnerability Hernández emphasizes is, as they say, a feature, not a bug. Several trading platforms let users create their own bots through proprietary programming languages. Those plugins get passed around in online trading forums, a network of get-rich-quick bots that a user can import on a whim. The problem? Those programming languages are themselves based on common ones like C++ and Pascal, making it relatively simple for a malicious coder to hide a backdoor or other malware in what looks like a friendly, automated options-trading assistant.

The research builds on a specific look at mobile app security in the trading space that Hernández released last fall. If anything, the problems he found on the web and on desktop applications are even more alarming, both in severity and scope.

“Desktop applications are the entire package,” Hernández says. “They’re more susceptible to vulnerabilities, because they implement more features, and the attack surface is bigger.”

This is also the first time Hernández is naming names; he previously let companies remain anonymous to give them adequate time to fix the issues. That process appears to be ongoing.

'There are hundreds of ways that an attacker could intercept your communication.'

Alejandro Hernández, IOActive

"Given that our approach to security is risk-based, findings that are truly impactful or relatively easy to exploit are fixed in an expedited fashion, while those with only minor impact or low exploitability factor are not as important to address right away, and some are of such low risk that in the interest of achieving the right balance between security, usability, and performance, we consciously decide not to address,” says Boris Kogan, chief information security officer at Interactive Brokers, which the IOActive report cites for issues across its web, desktop, and mobile offerings. Interactive Brokers did not disclose which specific issues it had fixed, citing security concerns, but did say that “all high-risk issues have been resolved.”

Other responses to WIRED were more cavalier. An inquiry via a web form at IQ Option, which Hernández found storing passwords unencrypted, yielded this response from support staff: “Rest assured your data is securely kept, and no misuse may happen.” Inquiries to several other trading platforms, large and small, went unanswered altogether.

That speaks to an issue Hernández encountered repeatedly. “Many brokers do not have a main point of contact to receive vulnerabilities in their products in general,” he says. “We used to send the vulnerabilities to a generic support@broker.com email address. In some cases they replied, but there were many contacts where we didn’t receive any answer.”

To that end, Hernández recommends sticking with large companies―the ones that have resources to invest in cybersecurity and respond to issues like the ones he found―to help minimize your vulnerability risks. He ranks TD Ameritrade, Charles Schwab, Merril Edge, and Robinhood as especially adept, if not entirely free of issues.

“We view all feedback as positive and use it to review the measures we have in place to ensure our clients and their data remain secure,” Schwab spokesperson Peter Greenley says. “Our multilayered applications are continuously tested and regularly updated to meet the demands of a constantly evolving security landscape.”

Otherwise,safety tips for online trading apps look a lot like they do on every other corner of the web. Enable two-factor. Don’t reuse passwords. And for the love of Gordon Gekko, don’t buy a put on public Wi-Fi networks.

La cantante estadounidense Lady Gaga anunció este martes que cambiará de residencia a Las Vegas el proximo año para ofrecer al público dos espectáculos permanentes con diferentes propuestas artísticas: una extravagante y otra más sobría y con ambientes de jazz. La cantante de 32 años actuará en la capital del juego desde el 28 de diciembre de este año hasta noviembre del 2019. Siguiendo el ejemplo de otros grandes artistas que llevaron este formato a Las Vegas como Celine Dion, Elton John o Britney Spears. El proyecto se presentará en el escenario del nuevo Park MGM, un enorme complejo hotelero situado en el famoso Las Vegas Strip. «Estamos creando un espectáculo que no se parece que haya hecho antes, será una celebración de todo lo que es unico y diferente a nosotros», ha indicado Lady Gaga a través de un comunicado. El espectáculo «Lady Gaga Enigma» promete ser muy teatral, similar a las provocaciones de sus comienzos. Mientras que «Lady Gaga Jazz and Piano» presentará una versión más minimalista de su repertorio. La artista dio un giro a su carrera hace cuatro años cantando con el «crooner» Tony Bennett, sesenta años mayor que ella. Desde entonces ha adoptado un sonido más maduro que ha marcado el estilo de su último álbum, «Joanne», con ritmos country que evocan escenarios familiares.

          Startup ô tô điện của Trung Quốc chưa bán ra bất kỳ chiếc xe nào, nhưng đã được định giá tới 3,6 tỷ USD      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Thị trường xe ô tô điện đang ngày càng trở nên nóng hơn bao giờ hết, khi rất nhiều nhà sản xuất ô tô truyền thống cũng bắt đầu nhảy vào giành giật thị phần với Tesla. Tại Trung Quốc, các nhà đầu tư còn chấp nhận rót hàng trăm triệu USD vào một startup ô tô điện chưa có một chiếc xe nào được bán ra.

Đó là một thực tại khích, startup có tên Xiaopeng Motors mới đây đã hoàn thành vòng gọi vốn trị giá 580 triệu USD. Khoản đầu tư mới nhất này đã giúp cho startup 4 năm thi bang lai a2 tuổi được định giá lên tới 3,6 tỷ USD. Ngay cả gã khổng lồ Alibaba cũng đầu tư vào startup ô tô điện này.

Startup ô tô điện của Trung Quốc chưa bán ra bất kỳ chiếc xe nào, nhưng đã được định giá tới 3,6 tỷ USD - Ảnh 1.

Điều khó hiểu là cho đến tận hiện giờ, Xiaopeng Motors vẫn chưa thể giao bất kỳ chiếc xe nào đến tay khách hàng. Chiếc ô tô điện trước tiên của Xiaopeng Motors là G3, được ra mắt và cho phép đặt trước vào đầu năm nay. Theo thưa, đã có khoảng 6.000 đơn đặt hàng, nhưng chưa có một đơn hàng nào được giao.

Xiaopeng hay còn được gọi là Xpeng, là một trong số những startup tàu điện được chú ý nhất hiện tại Trung Quốc và cả trên thế giới. Xpeng đã có màn ra mắt ấn tượng tại sự kiện Consumer Electronics Show, diễn ra ở Las Vegas. Mẫu xe G3 sau khi ra mắt đã nhận được rất nhiều đánh giá tích cực.

Startup ô tô điện của Trung Quốc chưa bán ra bất kỳ chiếc xe nào, nhưng đã được định giá tới 3,6 tỷ USD - Ảnh 2.

Tuy nhiên, việc sinh sản xe ô tô không phải là điều đơn giản, đặc biệt là với quy mô lớn. Xpeng đang phải vật lộn để tăng sản lượng xe xuất xưởng, nhằm đáp ứng đủ số lượng đơn đặt hàng. Đây là khó khăn chung không chỉ các startup mới thành lập, mà ngay cả Tesla cũng đang gặp phải.

Để sản xuất được một chiếc xe ô tô cần có rất nhiều dây chuyền khác nhau. Trong khi các hãng smartphone dễ dàng thuê dây chuyền sản xuất của bên thứ 3, thì các startup xe điện chẳng thể làm như vậy. Họ phải tự xây dựng các dây chuyền sinh sản của riêng mình, mà các hãng ô tô truyền thống thường mất rất nhiều thời kì trước khi có thể hoạt động ổn định.

Cũng không chỉ có Xiaopeng Motors, mà rất nhiều startup mới khác như NIO hay WM Motor cũng đều được đánh giá rất cao, nhưng lại gặp cùng một khó khăn trong việc sinh sản số lượng lớn các mẫu xe điện của mình.

Hầu hết các mẫu ô tô điện của các startup Trung Quốc có giá bán trong khoảng 29.000 - 58.000 USD. Đây là một lợi thế rất lớn so với những mẫu tàu điện của Tesla, có giá nhập cảng khoảng 131.000 USD.

Tuy nhiên, Tesla cũng bắt đầu kế hoạch xây dựng nhà máy sản xuất tại Trung Quốc, nhằm cung cấp thị trường nội địa. Chính bởi thế mà cuộc đua này mới chỉ bắt đầu. Và sau Mỹ, Trung Quốc có thể sẽ sớm trở nên thị trường ô tô điện lớn thứ hai thế giới. Có thể chúng ta sẽ lại được chứng kiến một cuộc chiến giống như Apple và các hãng smartphone giá rẻ tại Trung Quốc.

          Gonzaga men open West Coast Conference schedule at home, closes on road against Saint Mary’s      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Gonzaga’s West Coast Conference schedule begins with two home games and closes with the last of three Bay Area trips and a regular-season finale against rival Saint Mary’s.

The WCC announced changes to its scheduling format last March when the Zags were contemplating a potential move to the Mountain West Conference. The 16-game schedule replaces the double round-robin 18-game set-up. The conference also voted to give the top two seeds byes into the WCC Tournament semifinals.

Gonzaga opens against Santa Clara on Jan. 5, the first of two one-game weeks. The second is the return game at Santa Clara on Jan. 24. That’s followed by two split weeks (home vs. Pacific, at San Francisco; home vs. Loyola Marymount, at Portland).

The first of two dates with BYU is Jan. 31 in Provo with the return game Feb. 23 for Gonzaga’s Senior Night. The Cougars spoiled Gonzaga’s senior send-off with wins at the McCarthey Athletic Center in 2015 and 2017, the latter ending the Zags’ bid at a 30-0 regular season.

Gonzaga’s 10th WCC game will be Feb. 9 in Spokane in the first of two showdowns versus Saint Mary’s. By then, the Zags will have completed the season series with Santa Clara and San Francisco and staged its lone meeting with Portland (Jan. 19 at Portland).

The home game against the Gaels marks the last of a three-game home stand (San Diego on Feb. 2, San Francisco on Feb. 7).

The Zags play four of their final six on the road, beginning with road trips to Loyola Marymount on Feb. 14 and San Diego on Feb. 16, and capped by visits to Pacific on Feb. 28 and Saint Mary’s on March 2.

Gonzaga’s only meeting with Pepperdine takes place Feb. 21 at the McCarthey Athletic Center.

Gonzaga, projected in the top five in preseason polls, will be heavy favorites to extend its streak of WCC shared/outright titles to seven. The Zags have been solo or co-champions 17 of the last 18 seasons.

The Zags return All-WCC selections Josh Perkins, Rui Hachimura and Killian Tillie, and conference newcomer of the year Zach Norvell Jr. The roster includes sophomore wing Corey Kispert, transfers Brandon Clarke (San Jose State) and Geno Crandall (North Dakota) and incoming freshmen Filip Petrusev and Greg Foster Jr.

The WCC Tournament returns to Orleans Arena in Las Vegas from March 7-12. The semifinals are scheduled for March 11 with the championship game the following night. The double-bye format that was in place from 2003-13 ended when the WCC added Pacific in 2014.
