Ohio's Danny O'Connor and Troy Balderson
The suspense in Ohio's 17th District today is palpable. The two candidates in a special congressional election won't know the results for a few weeks - the final tally is that close. It won't be until the provisional and absentee votes are counted that the results will finally be known to all. Whether or not the Democrats win this one, it's still good news for them. The 17th is a district that has been so gerrymandered to the benefit of the Republican Party in recent years, the area hadn't gone Democratic since 1982. This is a grim prologue to the November midterms for the GOP. We may very well see the "blue wave" that more than a few of the talking heads have been predicting for months. We shall see.
`
This cannot be emphasized enough. The future of this country is at stake. Does that sound just a bit extreme for your tastes? Perhaps it might be; but please, I would beg you to consider this: In 2020, after the next census, the party in power - particularly in Governors mansions all over the country - will be redrawing the election districts. If the Democrats are not the party doing most of the redistricting, look forward to another decade (at least) of America sinking into the abyss that is being manufactured by America's extreme right wing.

I really hate to be seen as a PR man for the Democratic Party, as I've said on this site too many times to count,  left that party in May of 1998 and I've never regretted my decision. It's not the party of Franklin an Eleanor Roosevelt - and hasn't been for a very long time. But while the Dems make me pull my hair out in frustration at times, the Republicans are beyond redemption. Theirs has not been the "party of Abraham Lincoln" for since 7:22 in the morning on April 15, 1865. That was the moment that old Abe breathed his last breath. Theirs is not a political party. Theirs is an organized criminal enterprise. America's very existence depends on them disappearing forever. Does that sound paranoid? I'll tell you what: keep voting Republican. Let's see what happens.

The Democratic Party needs to win this overwhelmingly in November. This is not the time to be experimenting with third parties. This is a time to get serious. It's later than you think.

I've never asked this before, but please share this little piece with as many people as possible. I think it's the most important thing I've ever posted on this site.

Anthony Swofford (Jake Gyllenhall) landet im Jahr 1989 beim Marine Corps und wird nach der Grundausbildung ein Marine-Scharfschütze. Unter Führung des überzeugten Marine-Ausbilders Sergeant Sykes (Jamie Foxx) wird sein Platoon in den Nahen Osten geschickt. Dort beginnt eine quälend lange Zeit des Wartens, die mit unsinnigen Übungen in der Gluthitze des irakischen Wüstensandes verbracht wird. Während die jungen Soldaten ihrem ersten aktiven Einsatz entgegen fiebern, erkennen sie, dass sie sich in einem unbekannten Land befinden, wo sie gegen einen fremden Gegner aus einem Grund kämpfen sollen, den sie nicht kennen. Ein großartiger Anti-Kriegsfilm, der auf dem autobiographischen Buch von Anthony Swofford basiert. Bei Erscheinen wurde Sam Mendes’ Film mit Stanley Kubricks Meisterwerk „Full Metal Jacket“ verglichen. IMDb 7,1/10

          Transcript of remarks by CE at media session       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
     Following is the transcript of remarks by the Chief Executive, Mrs Carrie Lam, at a media session before the Nam Pak Hong Association 150th anniversary ceremony this evening (August 8):
 
Reporter: Why do you insist that Fred Ma should stay, because a company certainly can do without one man and shouldn't he also be responsible? And secondly, why should Transport Secretary Frank Chan stay too? Should he be accountable for this whole incident surrounding the Shatin to Central Link?
 
Chief Executive: Well, I understand that in some quarters, whenever an issue like this happens, people want all the heads to roll, but we have to be reasonable and take the appropriate actions. I have explained at length that when we talk about responsibility and accountability, there are different levels of responsibility and accountability.
 
     In this particular incident, the director or the project director and the works team have the most important responsibility that they have to shoulder, and that's why we are very decisive in taking actions on that front. But as far as the senior management is concerned, because there is division of labour within a company,  the senior management perhaps could have done better in terms of monitoring, especially after the incident has hit the news. They have been given a period of time to produce and submit report to the Hong Kong SAR Government, the senior management should have exercised an even higher level of diligence and vigilance to ensure the accuracy of the report. So Mr Lincoln Leong has also taken responsibility for that.
 
     Then finally is the Chairman and the Board of the MTR Corporation. I have a look at the facts and asked my government directors on the MTR Board. They have been kept in the dark. They have performed their role in asking a lot of questions from the management, especially the project team, but they have been kept in the dark. My consideration is based on this sort of analysis of responsibility and accountability. But practically, the MTR Corporation is a very sizeable company. It has several business areas. One is of course the projects, the railway projects. The other is operating railway every day, transporting 5 million of passengers on a daily basis, and they have the property side as well. For such a big company to have all these senior people leaving at the same time would not be a very sensible proposition. So despite Mr Fred Ma himself wanting to take accountability for this matter and step down, I have invited him and persuaded him to stay for a while in order to help us to undertake the various functions.
 
     As far as the Secretary for Transport and Housing, the considerations are very much the same. He is also a member of the Board, and I think the government directors have also exercised their diligence in scrutinising the work of the project team and asking questions. In terms of a monitoring role, of course the Highways Department is assisting the Secretary for Transport and Housing in monitoring and the discovery this time that we could come out to tell the public about is part and parcel of that effective monitoring.

Rod, I have read the Benedict Option. Like I said, I’ve bought all your books in hard cover at full price at a real brick and mortar store (my way of helping both writers and real book stores). Lol. I know you wrote the Benedict Option for ALL Christians in this messed up age, but I’ve encountered Christians in real life and this blog who think their particular denomination is immune from the types of things we’re seeing in the Catholic Church. That, as you know, is an illusion. PS: Your Dante book was my favourite. It really helped me through a tough time. Thanks. <i>[NFR: It is a complete illusion. In fact, as we now know, many people of the Diocese of Lincoln thought their diocese was a safe place from all this rot. In fact, it was not. Their sense of safety was an illusion. -- RD]</i>
          Trump is on a 'working vacation' at his private golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey. Here's how his vacation time compares to past presidents.      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

Washington can be a tough town, where scandals abound and never-ending political drama rules the day.

Perhaps the hustle and bustle of life in the US capital takes a greater toll on nobody more than the president.

"Over the years, presidents struggle so hard to get to the White House and then they're almost desperate to get away from the place once they're there," journalist Kenneth Walsh said during an interview in 2009.

Vacations and weekend getaways help US presidents cope with the pressures of leading the country. John F. Kennedy frequented Hyannis Port in Massachusetts. Ronald Reagan had a ranch in California. And President Donald Trump has a golf course in New Jersey and his famous Mar-a-Lago private resort in Florida.

Here's how some US presidents vacationed as compared to Trump, who is taking a "working vacation" at his private golf club in Bedminister, New Jersey this week:

Teddy Roosevelt's "Summer White House" in Sagamore Hill, New York, served as an ideal location for the president to enjoy the outdoors, away from Washington.

NPR Music issued their list of "The 200 Greatest Songs by 21st Century Women+" last month, a year after they published the "150 Greatest Albums by Women". The list has is filled with great songs from across all genres and is well worth exploring (Beyonce doesn't have the #1 spot). To celebrate, NPR and Ann Powers hosted an event called 'Turning the Tables Live' at Lincoln Center's Out of Doors series with Mitski (#16), Phoebe Bridgers (#190), Jamila Woods (#144), and Carly Rae Jepsen (#21), plus an intro set from I'm With Her (Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz and Aoife O'Donovan).

Each artist shared a bit about themselves and their songwriting in response to questions from Powers before performing one of their hits. Jepsen's fans were the hardest core and stood to sing "Run Away With Me", "I Really Like You", and "Cut to the Feeling" along with her. (I'm not sure how often she plays acoustic, but this was a great way to see a pop singer perform without any sheen.)

Mitski performed "Your Best American Girl", "Geyser", and "I Will" after she noted how she understands how her music reaches a wider audience. She said, "If you write something that's true to you, it'll be true to someone else, 'cause you're not that special", a sentiment Bridgers echoes later on. Bridgers performed my favorites "Scott Street", "Smoke Signals", and "Motion Sickness".

Jamila Woods connected her set (songs like "LSD", "Holy", and "Blk Girl Soldier") to her activism (though really the lines aren't strictly defined as the latter informs the former) as she responded to Powers. Woods also had the powerful finale mashing her song "In My Name" (people can't pronounce her name correctly the first time she noted) with Destiny's Child's "Say My Name". It was a unique finish to a special event.

Lincoln Center will be hosting AmericanaFest this weekend (August 11-12) featuring Mavis Staples and Margo Price (both of whom had performed at Newport Folk Festival). Both shows are free but be sure to arrive early to get a seat.

Milwaukee journalist arrested after photographing squad cars at police lot

A Milwaukee journalist working on a story about police response times was arrested over the weekend after taking photographs of squad cars in a Milwaukee Police Department parking lot.

Edgar Mendez, a reporter with the Milwaukee Neighborhood News Service, was issued a $181 ticket for trespassing — but only after being handcuffed, fingerprinted and questioned at the police station at 245 W. Lincoln Ave.

A Police Department spokesman said Wednesday that the no-trespassing signs were clearly marked and that Mendez had no press credentials on him when he was pulled over after leaving the lot.

But News Service Editor Sharon McGowan said Mendez's treatment appeared excessive and that the agency plans to contest the citation.

"The whole thing was completely unnecessary," said McGowan, who has reached out to the nonprofit Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press for assistance with the case. (read more...)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

~~~~

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

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

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

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

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

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

~~~~

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

The 2018 Hart Institute Administrators are:

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

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

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

          Lincoln Said What? Bogus Quotations Take On A New Life On Social Media      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
It wasn't a serious political gaffe, but it was awkward. On Feb. 12, the Republican National Committee tweeted a picture of the Lincoln Memorial along with the quote, "'And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count; it's the life in your years' — Abraham Lincoln." You'd have figured the party of Lincoln would have come up with something a little more consequential than an adage about staying sprightly in your declining years. It didn't sound very Lincolnesque, and people quickly pointed out that he never said anything of the sort. Some took that tweet as another occasion to deplore the plague of bogus quotations on the Internet. That's fair enough. But quotations can be bogus in different ways. Some are purely fraudulent, as when people ascribe a modern political sentiment to some historical figure to give it a phony pedigree. It's like slapping a thick coat of varnish on a recent painting and trying to pass it off on eBay as a Rembrandt. The Thomas Jefferson website at
          Nebraska man holds frog hostage      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

On August 8, 2018 around 1:05 a.m., Lincoln County deputies received a call of a motor vehicle accident at Kelly Avenue and Hershey / Dickens Road, south of Hershey. It was reported a single vehicle had rolled, but the driver was not staying by the accident scene. The male driver of the wrecked vehicle had gotten a ride and was on his way to North Platte.

The driver contacted the 911 Center and told them he was not wanting to speak to police and if he had to, he would assault the officers. A deputy was able to identify the vehicle the driver was riding in and stopped it at Leota and Dewey Street in North Platte. The driver, who was now a passenger, jumped out and began yelling at the lone deputy. 

The driver reached down and picked up a frog and wanted to hand it to the deputy. He changed his mind and began shouting he was holding the innocent frog hostage, as well as yelling threats at the deputy.

A North Platte Police Officer arrived to assist the deputy and the subject began to throw paper and trash at the Officer, while holding the frog hostage. The deputy gave the subject numerous commands to comply and calm down. Eventually the deputy deployed his taser, releasing the frog and controlling the male driver.

The driver was taken to Great Plains Health and placed in Emergency Protective Custody. Drugs and maybe alcohol is suspected. The frog appeared uninjured.


          Ricketts announces plan to promote Nebraska abroad      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Lincoln, Neb.  - Gov. Pete Ricketts has unveiled a plan to promote Nebraska abroad, increase trade with other countries and attract more foreign investment.

Ricketts announced the plan Wednesday with members of the Nebraska Governor's Council for Foreign Relations, a group he established last year.

The plan calls for more international trade missions over five years and a focus on specific countries that are likely to partner with Nebraska. It also recommends creating a network of “Nebraska goodwill ambassadors” to tout the state overseas.

The group also plans to work with Nebraska's universities and colleges and the Nebraska Tourism Commission.

The council includes officials from state agencies and industry groups.

          Kommentar zu Tagesdosis 8.8.2018 – Der Drops ist gelutscht, Freunde von Kodohama      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Ehrlich gesagt habe ich keinen in meinen Bekanntenkreis der nicht Umwelt-bewusst leben will, die Gesellschaft versucht schon einiges, Mülltrennung, keine Plastiksäcke, Pfandflaschen, Energiesparen. Von Ignoranz kann nicht gesprochen werden. Es ist das Thema das viele schon sehr stark beschäftigt und das schon lange, die Grünen waren vor vielen Jahren auch mal wirklich grün. Ja also daran liegt es nicht das die Katastrophe ignoriert wird. Das hat der lieben Her Flecke leider völlig verkannt. Aber es liegt an der Manipulation dieser Menschen durch die Mainstreammedien die den wahren Grund, die Ursache verschweigen und das mit voller Absicht. Wie kann ein System das exponentielles Wachstum, exponentiellen Resourcenverbrauch fordert in eine endliche Welt passen? Das geht nicht. Und die Ursache dafür ist eine Geldsystem und der Zins, Gier nach Reichtum und mehr. Täglich werden uns in den MSM die sogenannten Promis presentiert wie sie mit ihren Reichtum protzen und sie sind deswegen die Besten. Alle streben danach ???? So und WIR sind der Meinung das es nichts bringt zB einen korrupten Politiker oder verbrecherische Bankmanager beiseite zu schaffen weil dann ja eh der nächste Verbrecher nachrückt, weil die MSM uns eben zu gierigen Verbrechern erziehen die aber eigentlich eh auf die Umwelt schauen wollen und bio einkaufen ? oder ? So aber die Rothschilds und andere Ganoven haben erfolgreich genau dieses Model angewendet und wenden es immer noch an. Wie ? Wer hat den Lincoln beiseite geschafft als er die staatliche Druckerpresse anwarf ? Oder wer hat Kennedy beiseite geschafft als dieser die Staatliche Druckerpresse anwarf ? Und wer hat Herrhausen beiseite geschafft als dieser die afrikanischen Staaten entschulden wollte ? Und was sagt uns ein Ackermann ? Er möchte ja nicht so enden wie Herrhausen ! Also Bankmanager tauen sich ja gar nicht mehr so zu handeln wie sie es für richtig halten würden weil sie sonst beiseite geschafft werden würden. Ganze Regierungen werden beseitigt weil sie sich nicht diesen System der Ausbeutung beugen wollen. 95 % der Bevölkerung laufen einfach immer einen hinterher, sie gehen zur Wahl und hoffen aufs Beste. Sie kaufen bio und gehen arbeiten weil sie das Geld zum Überleben brauchen. Ja von denen ist nicht viel zu erwarten was sollen die ändern solange das 1 % korrupt ist das bestimmt. Die Menschen laufen Blinden nach und wer Blinden nachläuft rennt bekanntlich über einen Abgrund. Was notwendig ist ist die Beseitigung der 1 % Verbrecher und Bestimmer und Verführer und Menschen in der Politik die die Mauer sehen und die zB auf die Bremse treten. Die 95 % müssen sich dann eh danach richten aber solange wir die Verbrecher nicht beseitigen die an den Hebeln der Macht sitzen wird sich nichts ändern. Nur die Verbrecher werden irgendwann die Notbremse ziehen weil die selber ja nicht so blöd sind und draufgehen wollen. Das wird dann aber nicht gut ausgehen für die 95 %, die Umsetzung dieses Planes ist voll im Gang. Der Erde wird es womöglich egal sein.

          Fox River Grove man sexually assaulted young girl, police say      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
A Fox River Grove man accused of sexually assaulting a young girl he knew is expected to make a court appearance Thursday.

Police arrested 57-year-old Bryan D. Stahl at 10:40 p.m. Monday, according to a criminal complaint filed in McHenry County court. Stahl, of the 1100 block of Lincoln Avenue, is accused of sexually assaulting the girl Saturday, according to the complaint.

He is charged with criminal sexual assault, which typically carries a penalty of as many as 15 years in prison.

The assault was reported to the Fox River Grove Police Department, which continues to investigate the situation, Police Chief Eric Waitrovich​ said Wednesday.

Waitrovich declined to comment on details while the investigation is ongoing.

Stahl previously had a license to practice dentistry in Fox River Grove. He let that license expire, however, in 2012, according to Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation records.

Stahl has no previous criminal charges in McHenry County, court records show.

He remained at the McHenry County Jail on Wednesday afternoon on a $50,000 bond, meaning he would need to post $5,000 bail to be released.

Stahl is scheduled to appear in court with a public defender Thursday morning.

McHenry County Assistant State's Attorney John Gibbons could not be reached to comment on details surrounding the investigation.

          A Paris Education - Trailer      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Etienne (Andranic Manet), a serious and impressionable shaggy-haired young cinephile, leaves behind his steady girlfriend (Diane Rouxel) in Lyon to study film in Paris. Settling into a dingy flat with a rotating cast of roommates, he immerses himself in a bohemian world of artists, intellectuals, and fellow film geeks who excitedly share their passion for Bresson, Ford, and obscure Russian directors. It’s a seemingly idyllic life of the mind—until more complicated matters of the flesh, as well as jealous creativity, intrude. Shooting in timeless black and white and interweaving references to philosophy, music, and cinema—from Pascal to Mahler to Parajanov—Jean Paul Civeyrac conjures a bittersweet ode to the heady days of student life that evokes the films of the French New Wave. – Film Society of Lincoln Center

River Proposal Threatens Kansas Lakes, Rivers

TOPEKA – To meet Nebraska’s legal obligation to increase the flow of the Republican River into Kansas, the Central Nebraska Public Power and Irrigation District has proposed creating a connection in Nebraska between the Platte River Basin and the Republican River Basin. After entering northcentral Kansas, the Republican River feeds into Lovewell Reservoir and Milford Reservoir before joining the Kansas River near Junction City. The Republican River also connects with several other waterways in northcentral Kansas.

The State of Kansas opposes this project because invasive Asian Carp and White Perch in the Platte River could enter the Republican River (along with other nuisance species) if the two rivers are connected. As a result, the project could severely impact Kansas’ sportfish and native aquatic species, water-based recreation, tourism and the state’s fishing economy. There is no evidence that those two species currently live in the Republican River.

Asian Carp can grow to more than 40 inches long and weigh more than 50 pounds. One Asian Carp species, the Silver Carp, is known to leap up to 10 feet in the air when boats or personal watercraft pass over. They pose a risk of serious injury to boaters and skiers who may find themselves surrounded by dozens of large, heavy fish leaping wildly from the water. Asian Carp and White Perch also compete with sportfish, so Kansas’ $210,000,000 recreational fishing industry would be at risk from declines of sportfish such as bass, crappie and walleye. Asian Carp are filter-feeders that compete with other fish for food and space. They are prolific breeders, grow fast and can quickly become the predominate fish species in a lake or river. In other states, some lakes with Asian Carp have experienced sportfish population declines of more than 80 percent with corresponding damage to their fishing and tourism economies.

White Perch are native to the east coast of the United States, and they can produce overpopulated, stunted populations in reservoirs. Stunted White Perch are too small to be sought after by anglers and can be so numerous that they can clog cities’ water intakes if there is a die-off. In addition, these fish eagerly eat the eggs of other fish species.

Changes to the Republican River could also impact critical habitat for the Shoal Chub and Plains Minnow which are threatened species in Kansas. Both species release their eggs into flowing water where they would be susceptible to being eaten by White Perch.

          Around The River Bend, A Flood Of History      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The Bark River is my backyard, childhood river. And yet, in a lifetime of travel, I'd never explored it. I knew it carved the land from the Ice Age to settlement times, from the Black Hawk War of 1832 (in which young Abraham Lincoln appears) to the era of grist mills. But the Bark also flows past impressive Indian mounds. It nurtured poets, naturalists and farmers. When former Marquette University professor Milton Bates published his Bark River Chronicles through the Wisconsin State Historical Society, I jumped at the chance to learn about the river with him. The Bark River winds nearly 70 miles through southern Wisconsin and travels, literally, through the glacial lake on which my family lives — Nagawicka Lake — in the city of Delafield. It then flows southwest through the city of Fort Atkinson, where it joins the Rock River on its way to Lake Koshkonong. It's part of the Mississippi watershed. All my life, I'd ridden my bike past an old mill house in Delafield. A mill had been on

That car came with only 27,000 miles on the odometer and a 460 ci 385-series V8 under the hood connected to a C6 three-speed automatic transmission. Shabir did not like the power output of the smog-era big-block V8. ... Read more

This is the last day of my west-coast traveling. I am flying back to Lincoln, Nebraska, from LA tonight.

I enjoyed sightseeing spots in each state, Washington, Oregon and California, at the same time, I learned a lot of hints of communication. In addition , of course, I was able to soak myself in “English Shower”. Mexican English which I heard in LA was hard to understand at the beginning of staying there.

This is a picture that I took at Santa Monica on August 6th. I was staying at a house of my mother’s friend in Torrance. I rode a bike both ways from her house to Santa Monica, which is about 50km away. Of course, my arms got tanned. The reason why I did this was I just wanted to see this college with my eyes where my parents used to go to when they were students. Comparing this college with universities such as Senshu and UNL, its campus was comparatively small and a lot of international students were learning there. Honestly, nothing inspired me. Having said so, this college actually a tribute to my parents and eventually myself. My visit was etched deep in my memory. (WREN@LA)

          Comment on Which States Referred to Slavery in Their Cause of Secession? by mimilyn      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
I'm wondering what purpose it serves to Google things and only read those from a narrow minded perspective. I've read the ordinances. I've also read the declarations of succession. I've only seen that four states listed slavery as part of their declaration. This doesn't mean that slavery was the sole cause of those four states decision to secede. It was almost surely a major factor, but some were very lengthy and pointed to other issues as well. This says nothing about the reasons for the rest of the states choosing to secede. One thing that people get confused about, is that the reasons for secession are not the reasons for the war. The main motivation for the states to begin seceding, was the perceived threat of radical abolitionists imposing their will onto their home states. The issue at hand was differences over the laws in place, regarding negro slavery. But, the principle behind it, was the federal government and yankee states disregarded the laws of sovereign states. In spite of the nobility behind the idea of abolition, their actions were contrary to the constitution. The reason for the war was less complex. Lincoln refused to accept the dissolution of the union. He didn't send his armies to free slaves, but to reclaim the CSA. He later decided to declare the Emancipation Proclamation to rally more soldiers. A strategic war maneuver. The war ultimately ended slavery, but at a huge price and left many in the south with deep resentment. It spawned much hatred, racism, lynchings, Jim Crow era, KKK, etc. The white supremacist views and oppression of blacks carried on in the entire country for many years after "emancipation".
          Best Things to Do in New York City This Weekend, Aug. 9-12       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The best things to do in New York City this weekend include an immersive outdoor screening of The Fifth Element, a Gelato Festival and queer comedy.

A sexy take on Shakespeare, with food

Shakespeare in the Square isn’t quite traditional; in fact, instead of laughter or sadness, their productions tend to provoke unexpected feelings -- like hunger. This August, a cast of six performs all 20 characters in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Their only props are food, from marshmallows to mashed potatoes, oats to oranges. Seeing how they’re juggled, cradled, weaponized and otherwise transformed for each scene is part of the messy, erotic fun. Through Aug. 19, The Access Theater, 380 Broadway, $30-$45, shakespeareinthesquare.com

Revel in the embarrassment of others

If you’ve passed a few hours suffering happily through the new Netflix series Mortified, where talented comedians and storytellers recount their most humiliating stories onstage, you’ll be thrilled to know that you can experience that secondhand embarrassment firsthand with a live performance of Mortified at Littlefield this Thursday. Seats are first-come, first-served. Aug. 10, 8 p.m., Littlefield, 635 Sackett St., Brooklyn, $10, littlefieldnyc.com

Immersive theater goes outdoors

You could pack a picnic and check out an outdoor movie in one the city’s parks — or you could head to the tropical outdoor dance hall Brooklyn Mirage for an immersive screening of The Fifth Element with projection effects, a 32-foot screen, an interactive photobooth of movie scenes, an ice cream social and lots of cookout food, a post-show dance party, and a full cocktail menu of tropical drinks that will make you think you’re aboard the Fhloston Paradise, all courtesy of BBQ Films. Aug. 10, 6-11 p.m., 140 Stewart Ave., Brooklyn, $14-$50, eventbrite.com

Hear a new take on West Side Story

Bobby Sanabria’s Multiverse Big Band adds some modern flair while playing through Leonard Bernstein’s classic in West Side Story Reimagined. Infusing the score with fresh Latin sounds — like Afro-Puerto Rican, Cuban, Dominican, and Mexican rock, funk and jazz — the concert is accompanied by live poetry readings and takes place blocks from where the acclaimed movie was filmed. Proceeds will go to the Jazz Foundation of America Puerto Rico Relief Fund. Aug. 10, 7:30 p.m., Damrosch Park, 70 Lincoln Center Plaza, free, lcoutofdoors.org

Eat the world’s best gelato

For the first time, Italy is exporting its famous Gelato Festival from its hometown of Florence to the East Coast. It’s worth the trek to Jersey City to sample the creations of a dozen of the world’s best gelato makers, including a local star, all challenged to come up with unique creations just for the festival. Between tastings, drop into the Gelato School to learn about the history of Italy’s take on ice cream, see how it’s made, test your skills to see if you could crack it in a gelateria, watch chef demos and more. Aug. 11-12, Liberty State Park, 1 Audrey Zapp Drive, Jersey City, $30, eventbrite.com

The buzziest weekend activity

Have you heard the buzz? It’s all about bees and their highly popular product this weekend at Wave Hill in the Bronx. Honey Weekend has activities for all ages, from honey-extraction and candle-making workshops to tasting sessions, plus arts & crafts. Whether you’ve got a sweet tooth or just into beekeeping, Honey Weekend is all about education and hands-on fun. Aug. 11, 10 a.m.-3 p.m., Wave Hill, W. 249th Ave. at Independence Ave., Bronx, $12, wavehill.org

Try out the latest music gear

Whether you love to personally shred some axe or just find that every playlist you love leans heavy on guitar, from acoustic American folk to ear-splitting electric rock, you’ll be in heaven at the Fear the Riff Expo. Over 70 companies will be showing off their latest instruments, amps and other accessories, catch celebrities like Ozzy Osbourne’s guitarist Zakk Wylde, plus cocktails, craft beer, tacos and barbecue. Expect artist appearances and demos, plus live performances. Aug. 11, 10 a.m.-6 p.m., Brooklyn Expo Center, 79 Franklin St., Brooklyn, $10-$40, feartheriff.com

NYC’s largest indie video game festival

Last year saw the debut of New York’s largest gathering of video game developers, Play NYC. This year, the convention to try new games (and even help devs on works in progress) expands to the Manhattan Center with over 140 games across four floors, plus more than 20 panels, talks and guided demos from industry insiders. Aug. 11-12, The Manhattan Center, 311 W. 34th St., $33, play-nyc.com

Cheer on the dragons

Over 120 fierce and majestic dragon boats take to the waters of Queens to vie for glory during the Hong Kong Dragon Boat Festival. The two-day fest isn’t just limited to spectatorship: learn about the history of the annual tradition with authentic food, live performances (including drumming, dance, kung fu, and fashion shows) and hands-on crafts. It’s free for all ages. Aug. 11-12, Flushing Meadows Park, Queens, Free, hkdbf-ny.org

The most scenic dance festival

The Battery Dance Festival can lay claim to have the most scenic venue in the city: All of its free performances happen outdoors in Battery Park with the Statue of Liberty as the backdrop. The week of performances all take place at sundown, with diverse styles from international companies including the Martha Graham School, Ballet Nepantla, and Jamal Jackson Dance Company, as well as workshops at Battery Dance Studios (with RSVP). Capping it off is a free Closing Night event at the Schimmel Center, with a VIP reception for $65. Aug. 11-18, multiple locations, free-$65, batterydance.org

Comedy = tragedy + time

Comedian Zach Zimmerman wants you to know that he’s very, very gay. That’s despite growing up Christian, with conservative parents, and hitting the big city in the time of Grindr. But it’s okay to laugh about it now, especially with a drink in hand. Union Hall debuts his scathing show, I Started as a Bottom, Now I’m Here, which might be about him, but it’s really about the determined queers in us all, surviving their way to the top. Aug. 12, 7:30 p.m., Union Hall, 702 Union St., Brooklyn, $8-$10, unionhallny.com


          Wrestling UFC rumors CM Punk WWE return at Summer Slam?       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

If WWE was going to bring back CM Punk, Summer Slam 2018 would be the absolute perfect event to do so. The current storyline of Brock Lesnar dumping his longtime advocate, Paul Heyman, shapes up perfectly for Punk to make his triumphant return to help out his former manager. Punk, of course, is a Paul Heyman guy. And before Heyman touted Lesnar as the “reigning, defending, undisputed champion” of the world he was telling the WWE Universe how Punk owned the record for the longest WWE heavyweight title reign of the “modern era.” Could Wrestling UFC rumors CM Punk WWE return at Summer Slam come true?

Punk’s lengthy title reign, which was a big part of his character at the time, ended at 434 days when The Rock beat him at the 2013 Royal Rumble. Interestingly enough, Lesnar just beat that record earlier this summer during his current reign with the Universal title.

Who better to help Roman Reigns finally conquer the beast than Punk, who could help end Lesnar’s title reign and place himself back with Heyman.

 

Wrestling UFC rumors CM Punk WWE return at Summer Slam this month?

The UFC and WWE have never gotten along any better than they do right now. Both organizations are continually promoting one another’s product with UFC mentions being dropped on RAW on a regular basis and Lesnar having shown up at a UFC Pay-Per-View last month.

UFC’s two biggest stars of the past 10 years – Lesnar and Ronda Rousey – are both currently under contract to WWE. That said, Lesnar is likely to return to the Octagon by the end of this year to fight Daniel Cormier and Rousey said earlier this year that she is not ruling out a return to UFC as well at some point.

Meanwhile, Punk’s UFC career is over. Dana White does not want to see Punk fight again after Punk was pounded by Mickey Gall a couple years back and was most recently shredded by Mike Jackson via unanimous decision.

It’s got to sting a bit for Punk that WWE is currently on such good terms with UFC. But in the long-run it could be a benefit to his career. Say Punk returned to WWE for a few months, got bored again and wanted to give UFC another try? In today’s UFC – WWE friendly climate, anything is possible when it comes to the swapping of talent. Could Wrestling UFC rumors CM Punk WWE return at Summer Slam come true?

Wrestling UFC rumors CM Punk WWE return at Summer

 

Wrestling UFC rumors CM Punk WWE return at Summer Slam this month?

Vince McMahon only follows 50 people on Twitter. There’s a bunch of XFL people on there. There’s newly elected Mayor Kane. There’s Rousey, The Rock, Lesnar and Donald Trump.

But one of the first persons McMahon followed when he joined Twitter in 2013 was Punk. Curiously, after all the legal battles. After all the bad-mouthing. Vince has not un-followed Punk. Either he’s genuinely interested in what his former champion is up to in 2018, or he simply doesn’t know how to unfollow people on Twitter. Either is obviously very possible.

Given McMahon’s ties to Trump, making a CM Punk return to WWE even more interesting is the fact that Punk flat-out called the President a racist earlier this year.

“If David Duke invites me over for tacos, I’m not going to David Duke’s house,” Punk said in June when asked if he would meet with Trump if he was ever invited to the White House. “Come on, I call it like I see it. A racist is a racist. I don’t care if you’re at the White House, or you live down the street from me. I’m not hanging out with you.”

Punk is 39-years-old, so it’s not exactly now or never considering AJ Styles is 41 and John Cena is the same age. But make no mistake - the clock is ticking as it pertains to him ever making any money in an octagon or a squared circle ever again.


          Comment on ‘Death of a Nation’ Review: Dinesh D’Souza’s Latest Right-Wing Propaganda Compares Donald Trump to Abraham Lincoln by Marko      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
This critique is nothing but hot air. Never responds to the facts laid out in the movie. For example; How is Antifa not like the brown/black shirts of fascists past? Which side is perpetrating violence and shutting down speech? Which side is in total control of the media, entertainment, Federal Law enforcement and educational institutions? Which side has been managing inner cities for the last 30 yrs? Why aren’t the policies making things better and only worse? Since the 1930s have the left improved blacks lot in life? Did the Left “earn” the black vote with progress? Where is all the hate for women and minorities at Trump rally’s? The left would have you believe somehow the right is fascist, yet the answers to the questions above and the movie all point to the left as being the text book definition of fascist.

Maybe you can get your cars fixed as well as the Fusion is a clone of the Zephr/MKZ.

National Gallery: Nevada

Rhys Griffiths

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.

Cancer of the colon is the fourth most common cancer in the United States — and, caught early, it’s also one of the most curable.
About 90 percent of individuals whose cancer is found before it has spread survive five years after diagnosis. That mean 9 out of 10 people with early-stage cancer live at a least five year. But, if the cancer has spread, the five-year survival rate is just 10 percent.
This month, two Lincoln Parish health care providers — Green Clinic and Northern Louisiana Medical Center — are teaming up to bring awareness about colon cancer.

          Estilista foi morto com crueldade       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Com requintes de crueldade, foi encontrado morto na manhã de quarta-feira, em sua residência no centro de Itabuna, o estilista Mar Ramos. Ele residia na Rua Eduardo Fontes, onde o corpo foi encontrado por sua doméstica, ao chegar à residência. Mar Ramos foi morto com golpes de pá e o corpo estava bastante machucado.

Mar Ramos, 51 anos, foi encontrado em cima de sua cama. De acordo com os peritos Carlos Eduardo e Robson Lincoln, a cena do crime não mostrava sinais de luta, porém os braços do estilista estavam enrijecidos e em direção para cima, o que pode significar uma provável tentativa de defesa.

Os peritos também constataram que, pela rigidez do cadáver, o crime ocorreu pelo menos 6 horas antes de descoberto, por volta das 9 horas. O companheiro da vítima, que não teve a identidade divulgada, é o principal suspeito. O homem morava com o estilista há 30 dias, segundo testemunhas e é procurado pela polícia.

A arma do crime, a pá, estava com vestígios de sangue e ao lado do corpo, ensanguentada nas pontas e na parte traseira. O irmão de Mar, Gilvan Ramos, revelou que há um ano houve uma tentativa de homicídio contra uma pessoa que estava com o estilista, porém acredita não ter nenhuma relação com o caso atual.

"Ele era uma pessoa muito boa, sempre ao lado da família", disse Gilvan. O presidente do Grupo Humanos, Itamar Santos, esteve no local e lamentou o ocorrido, afirmando que Mar Ramos era uma pessoa maravilhosa e não merecia um fim tão trágico. A família de Mar reside em Pau Brasil.

The Bark River is my backyard, childhood river. And yet, in a lifetime of travel, I'd never explored it. I knew it carved the land from the Ice Age to settlement times, from the Black Hawk War of 1832 (in which young Abraham Lincoln appears) to the era of grist mills. But the Bark also flows past impressive Indian mounds. It nurtured poets, naturalists and farmers. When former Marquette University professor Milton Bates published his Bark River Chronicles through the Wisconsin State Historical Society, I jumped at the chance to learn about the river with him. The Bark River winds nearly 70 miles through southern Wisconsin and travels, literally, through the glacial lake on which my family lives — Nagawicka Lake — in the city of Delafield. It then flows southwest through the city of Fort Atkinson, where it joins the Rock River on its way to Lake Koshkonong. It's part of the Mississippi watershed. All my life, I'd ridden my bike past an old mill house in Delafield. A mill had been on

One of my favorite authors is Zadie Smith. She’s a mixed race British woman who grew up in a housing project in north London. I remember reading her debut novel White Teeth as a graduate student at Oxford 20 years ago and being deeply inspired by the music she heard in the multicultural mosaic of modern life.

She recently wrote an essay in The New York Review of Books about Brexit, an election in Britain that highlighted divides, revealed ruptures and sent shockwaves not unlike a recent election you might have heard about on this side of the Atlantic.

There’s a particular story she tells in that essay that I think says so much about where we are at now, and the complicated work we need to do moving forward. Zadie Smith is at the playground and her daughter is playing with the son of this white woman standing a few steps away. The woman is considerably younger than Zadie, although their children are about the same age. She speaks in an accent that signals membership in the broader social and ethnic class that voted for Brexit.

Zadie remembers a time when conversation would have come easily between them. In fact, friendships that cross boundaries is the overriding theme in many of her novels. Neither she nor this other person are antisocial, and the playground has plenty of racially mixed groups chattering away. And yet she can’t find words to share with this woman whose son her daughter appears to be enamored of.

The drama seemed to grow as they walk up the hill a few feet apart and still not talking, Zadie Smith watching this woman turn left into the housing project she grew up in, and feeling the woman’s eyes on her as she turned right into the new development of considerably nicer homes. The barrier between them felt like it had become an electric fence surrounded by armed guards – all of it invisible, all of it also feeling very real. 

Several things struck me about this scene. One, Zadie Smith is not neutral on Brexit. It’s a vote, not unlike the vote here, with deep and painful impact on her friends and family. After the vote, a skinhead directs a fascist slogan at her Jamaican-born mother. A local shopkeeper says in her general direction, “I suppose you’ll all have to go home now.”

Two, she’d seen a stranger and somehow imagined a monster. The fact is she didn’t know who this woman was, or who she had voted for, or why. She had imagined a story about this white woman on the playground, and it was the tale of a villain.

Three, Zadie Smith was self-aware enough to wonder, What story is this woman imagining about me, as she hears my Oxbridge accent and watches me turn the lock in a big house? Am I somehow the villain of her story?

The ultimate tragedy for me is that Zadie Smith and this woman, they loved things in common. Matters in which they had a significant stake. A friendship between their children, the thriving of the playground on which that friendship was developing, a neighborhood, perhaps a school. Whatever else might have divided them, why were they unable to at least begin with the things they loved in common? Why do we these days imagine monsters when we meet strangers, and turn away? 

For anybody who has read especially the early novels of Zadie Smith, it is a jarring realization. This is a writer whose imagination conjured the most optimistic visions of all identities of people, and combined them together in ways that made them better than they could have been alone. She herself is the product of a marital union precisely like that. But something about the poisoned social environment of post-Brexit Britain had deformed that imagination, and retarded even Zadie Smith’s superhuman gifts for conversation across boundaries.

For me, this scene says a lot about the times in which we live, the problems that we face and the work we need to do.

John Courtney Murray defines ‘civilization’ as “people living together and talking together.” Danielle Allen advances that definition by saying that a central act of citizenship in a diverse democracy is talking to strangers. She says that the goal of a nation like ours is not really oneness, which requires a homogeneity that is neither possible nor desirable. Instead, the goal is wholeness – the ability to have a sense of cohesion and coherence alongside our multiplicity. Michael Walzer defines it thus: “How are we, in the United States, to embrace our differences and maintain a common life.” Danielle Allen’s answer to this question is: when strangers are willing to build trust with one another, they have the chance to build a new wholeness, a society in which they can call one another citizen. 

So what do we do when injustice is so clear that you can no longer stay silent? When a country is so divided that we feel like a nation under two flags? And when the atmosphere is so poisoned that talking to a person on the playground who has a child the same age as yours feels impossible? 

It just so happens that as I was tying myself in knots defining the problem, Barack Obama shows up in South Africa and starts talking about Nelson Mandela.

One of the main themes of Obama’s speech was on Mandela’s willingness to work with people with whom he disagreed, even the ones who clearly oppressed him – his jailers. Mandela did things that I find superhuman. He learned the language of his jailers, Afrikaans, so he could understand them better. He met with them in private negotiations when he was in jail. When he was inaugurated President of South Africa, the person who held the keys to his prison cell was by his side.

For Obama, there is a deep spiritual wisdom in Mandela’s moves: “it was not just the subjugated, the oppressed who were being freed from the shackles of the past. The subjugator was being offered a gift, being given a chance to see in a new way, being given a chance to participate in the work of building a better world.”

The genius of Mandela was that he was able to speak about the problem of polarization in a way that didn’t paper over marginalization, and address the injustice of marginalization in a way that didn’t exacerbate polarization, and to do it all recognizing that there will always be legitimate disagreements between different groups in a diverse democracy.

He was able to paint a picture of a society where everybody thrived, and to get people to trust that he could play a role in leading them there. Aime Cesaire: “There is room for all of us at the rendezvous of victory.”

Michelle Obama said, When other people go low, we go high. Well, apartheid is the lowest low you can imagine, and Mandela’s actions the highest high. What he did reminds me of Edward Markham’s poem:

You drew a circle that drew me out

Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout.

But love and I had the wit to win

We drew a circle that drew you in.

 

I do not for a second want you to think that I believe this is going to be easy. We have signed up for the hard work of being interfaith leaders in at a time in which large swaths of people have weaponized their identities and are wounding one another. It is enormously tempting in that situation to circle around your flag, burrow into your bunker, declare those outside your lines the enemy and fire away. My friends who work with young people who have been involved in violence tell me the line, “Hurt people, hurt people.” It is entirely natural.

And in a situation when hurt is all around, some group of people has to stand up and be healers. 

Obama ends his speech on Mandela by reminding people of perhaps Mandela’s most remarkable quality - his hope. His belief that day after backbreaking day splitting limestone in the unforgiving heat on Robben Island - even when apartheid felt to so much of the world that it would last forever – that he was somehow part of bending the arc of the universe in the right direction.

Mandela felt a cosmic wind at his back. He knew that young people were gathering to push forward. That gave him hope. He heard the voices of people who believed in societies that gave everyone dignity – voices ranging from African tribal leaders to the Founding Fathers of the United States – calling him forward. That gave him hope too.

I believe he heard angels whispering in his ear.

I hope you hear those angels, too. In fact, they are all around us. There is the angel of Swami Vivekenanda who spoke at the Parliament of the World’s Religions in 1893, about the glory of nations that welcome all people and the righteousness of religion that builds bridges not barriers. There is the angel of Jane Addams, who imagines American democracy anew, welcomes the strangers of her time and sees in each one a contributing citizen. There is the angel of Abraham Lincoln, who says to a meeting of people in Chicago that America is not an ethno-state. It is not meant for one race or one religion. If you hold with the ideals of our founding documents, you are “blood of the blood, and flesh of the flesh” of the people who wrote them. 

I leave you with the voice of one more angel, the great poet of the south side of Chicago, Gwendolyn Brooks:

 

SPEECH TO THE YOUNG SPEECH TO THE PROGRESS-TOWARD (AMONG THEM NORA AND HENRY III)

Gwendolyn Brooks

Say to them,
say to the down-keepers,
the sun-slappers,
the self-soilers,
the harmony-hushers,
"Even if you are not ready for day
it cannot always be night."
You will be right.
For that is the hard home-run.
Live not for battles won.
Live not for the-end-of-the-song.
Live in the along.

          Opinion: Calling The Press The Enemy Of The People Is A Menacing Move      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
"Enemy of the people" is an incendiary phrase. It's been uttered by some of history's most vicious thugs — Robespierre, Goebbels, Lenin, Stalin, Mao — to vilify their opponents ... who were often murdered. President Trump must know that history by now when he calls the press "the enemy of the people." As he must also know the anti-Semitic and racist history of the America First slogan , by which the president describes many of his policies. But Sarah Sanders, the White House press secretary, pointedly declined the chance this week to say, as Ivanka Tump did , "I do not feel that the media is the enemy of the people." We should be careful about calling President Trump's attacks on the press unprecedented. Abraham Lincoln shut down newspapers during the Civil War. President Wilson signed the Espionage Act that made it illegal to print, "any disloyal, profane, scurrilous, or abusive language about the form of government of the United States," which would put many Americans behind bars

Foram consideradas para a seleção ficções, documentários e animações de longa-metragem. A classificação considerou a avaliação de críticos de cinema, filtradas a partir da plataforma Metacritic. Apesar de os clássicos terem se destacado mais, alguns filmes recentes também conquistaram boas posições no ranking, como é o caso de “Projeto Flórida” (2017), de Sean Baker; e “Lady Bird: A Hora de Voar” (2017), de Greta Gerwig.

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




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




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

2018-08-06 - Unknown odor blows through neighborhood in North Baton Rouge (Louisiana):

http://www.kxxv.com/story/38824908/strange-smell-reported-near-airline-prescott-no-gas-leak-found

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

http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12102567

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

2018-08-06 - Insurers fleeing California and other western states as fires escalate:
http://www.cbsnews.com/news/california-wildfires-property-insurers-cancel-policies-because-of-risk/
http://twitter.com/CBSNews/status/1026668775070949376

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

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

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

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

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

cover image"Twenty-nine-year-old Abraham Lincoln has spent his entire adult life running from his past--from the poverty of the dirt-floor log cabin where he was raised, from the dominion of his uneducated father, and from a failed early courtship. But now, Lincoln's past is racing back to haunt him. It is the summer of 1838, and Springfield is embroiled in a tumultuous, violent political season. All of Springfield's elite have gathered at a grand party to celebrate the Fourth of July. Spirits are high--until a prominent local politician is assassinated in the midst of fireworks. When his political rival is arrested, young lawyer Lincoln and his best friend Joshua Speed are back on the case to investigate. It's no ordinary trial, however, as Lincoln and Speed soon face unwelcome complications. Lincoln's ne'er-do-well father and stepbrother appear in town and threaten Lincoln's good name and political future. And before long, anonymous letters start appearing in the local newspapers, with ominous threats that make Lincoln fear for himself and his loved ones. As the day of reckoning arrives, the threats against Lincoln continue to escalate. Lincoln and Speed must identify the culprit and fast, before Lincoln loses the race to outrun his past in Final Resting Place, the brilliant third installment of Jonathan F. Putnam's acclaimed Lincoln and Speed mysteries." -- provided by publisher.

           The lethal logic of the Monocultural National Us: Part Three – two case studies       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The Monocultural National Us wreaks havoc all over the world. How do we loosen its grip on our imaginations, and what might this mean for the defence of our democracies?

lead Donald Trump and Theresa May hold a joint press conference at Chequers, July 2018. Stefan Rousseau/ Press Association. All rights reserved.

I want to apply the criteria for a ‘healthy nationalism’ sketched in part two to two cases of the Monocultural National Us that have been causing havoc in our midst: the use of the word Zionism as a pejorative; and the two warring versions of ‘Us’ in Brexit Britain.

Talking about Zionism

Here it is an altercation between two Facebook posters. It strikes me as mild but typical in the long-gathering process of accusation that has accompanied any enlightenment the IHRA definition (plus examples) of “anti-semitism” has afforded since it reappeared over the horizon, despite noble attempts since the OSCE Berlin Declaration of 2002 kick-started this process, to point out its inherent flaws. Here, GLG and RE are discussing "a thoughtful and thought-provoking piece on this thorny topic."

“GLG When I claim to be anti-zionist, what I mean is I am opposed to the colonialist actions of a succession of Israeli governments - especially the current one under Netanyahu, and the Settler Movement. Who, aided and protected by the IDF, are blatantly evicting Palestinians and taking their land and property for themselves. I also hold the strong conviction that Israel should withdraw to its pre-1967 borders and that all sequestered lands should be returned to their rightful owners. I do NOT mean reversing the historical fact of Israel's creation, even though I do believe that the way that it was done in the first place was grossly mishandled - for which the UK is most to blame.

 

RE Best not to define that as anti Zionist then - your position is clear when you define it the way you do here, but will be understood differently if you call yourself an anti Zionist.”

What is interesting about RE’s response is that it contains no criticism of GLG’s analysis, but warns against the offence that may nevertheless be given attached to the role of the ‘anti-Zionist.’ This is meant to be a helpful warning. But it is a confused one, and repeated in many places, has led to a chilling effect on debate around the relationship of Israel and Palestine, when that debate is surely crucial for progress in the world.

It is a confusion at many levels, beginning with the fundamental problem shared by definitions of antisemitism with hate speech legislation generally, the minute it moved beyond the relative clarity of  ‘incitement to violence’, which is that the meaning of language is crucially determined by context, and that exactly the same phrase can mean completely different things uttered by different people in different situations. Even statements calling for the destruction of the state of Israel mean something very different when yelled by a young Palestinian, trapped in the Occupied Territories and humiliated by the experience of occupation, from, say, the opinion of a Middle East military man with influence over the development of a nuclear arsenal in his country.

But setting aside this comprehensive dilemma, and all the uncertainty around who is qualified as a result to judge the use of certain formulations and expressions, let alone an appropriate response… the concept of Zionism has a particularly vexed history thought-provokingly described in openDemocracy by Jonathan Shamir, who also concludes, though with more clarity than RE, that “ these polarising terms should be shelved, and taken out only when we are discussing political philosophy, which most of the time we are not.”

I hope I may be forgiven by him for what follows, on the grounds that it is Zionism as a term of political philosophy that concerns me. In the accusations and counter-accusations around the term Zionist, I want to argue that what those who are avowedly anti-Zionist often fail to articulate is the Monocultural National Us which lurks implicitly in its definition, with all the results in terms of violence that concern us most about bad nationalism. When they spell out what they criticise about Zionist support for the Israeli state, there are controversial analogies with apartheid, disputes about the precise nature of a colonial-settler state, all sorts of ways of trying to pin down what is uniquely appalling to them about Israeli policies with regard to Palestinians. All versions of course are furiously pushed back, and accompanied by the statement that has been given new topicality by Trump’s decision to pull out of the ‘cesspool of political bias’ which he alleges is the UN Human Rights Council, on the grounds that Israel is being singled out for special opprobrium in a way that can only be antisemitic, when there are many other – the implication is far worse – transgressors who are even members of that Council.

Trump doesn’t attempt to explain, of course, why the US singles out Israel for its special protection, considerable support and military alliance, one reason for the dismay in what used to be thought of as the free or civilised world at the impunity with which Israel acts towards the Palestinians.

The Zionist state claims to be especially for Jewish people: in fact it goes out of its way to offer Jewish people everywhere a special access to its citizenship. In this regard, and because Jewishness is linked to race and religion, it is very easy to make the mistake of seeming to criticise Jewishness when criticising the actions of the Israeli nation state. And it is not quite so simple as following the advice that one should always differentiate between criticism of the state and criticism of the Israeli people, in a situation in which so many Israeli citizens seem to have bought into the Monocultural National Us.

However it is not surprising that they have. Given the history of antisemitism, fear and violence in which the state was born, it is actually almost obvious that in this context the ‘Never again’ of World War II should with very little encouragement become, let us always have the upper hand and never be weak or frightened again. And as we have seen, that is not a million miles away from the basic building bricks of the Monocultural National Us, which always in the end requires a Them. So it is not at all surprising that internally in Israel, the exclusion and discrimination against its Palestinian minority (around 20 per cent of the population) has become entrenched over the years in laws that are deemed to “preserve the ability to realize the Zionist dream in practice”. It is not surprising that human rights, particularly minority and migrant rights are on the run in Israel, or that the Knesset Presidency recently disqualified a bill named: “Basic Law: Israel [is a] State for All its Citizens”. And it is not at all surprising that the projected external enemy that always returns to threaten one’s peace has been steadily turning the Occupied Territories into a large open air prison that is a reproach and scandal to us all. Because this is the logic and inevitable destiny of the Monocultural National Us, and it is precise to criticise Zionism as the political philosophy which underpins the Israeli state, because it is (or has become) this type of National Us, backed by the violence of the state that Zionism is committed to, and it is in the nature of that same economy of desire that, unless it is recognised for what it is and stopped, it must lead to all this violence.

But doesn’t Trump have a point? There is something extremely normal, even mundane, about what is wrong with the Israeli nation state in its response to Palestinians, and it is not very different at all from the European nation-state that was its model, only differing recently in the degree of violence internal and external that it has been willing to undertake in perpetuation of that model.

This is precisely where three of the examples of what could be considered antisemitism “taking into account the overall context”, given the then new EUMC definition of antisemitism which was the precursor to the IHRA definition – take their aim:

‘Denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination, e.g., by claiming that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavour.’

‘Applying double standards by requiring of it a behaviour not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation.’

‘Drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis.’

By these definitions, Jacqueline Rose’s thoughtful book The Question of Zion (2005), could be said to have transgressed on all three counts, when it argued that, “Zionism …imported into the Middle East a Central European concept of …organic nationhood, founded on ethnicity and blood (or “land, descent and the dead”)… the very version of nationhood from which the Jewish people had had to flee.”

What we are meant to conclude from these warning definitions is that an Israeli democracy so constituted has as much right to pursue such policies as any other democracy similarly constituted. But Rose’s point is the opposite one: that the rigour with which Israel pursues the defence of a state based on racial and religious unity makes it a stark and leading example of the inevitably racist and self-defeating outcome of ‘organic nationhood’.

And not only ‘organic nationhood’. At a time when most European countries are engaged in a decisive worldwide swing towards the defence of various monocultural constructions of the ‘National Us’ – for example, not just Hungary or Poland, but the re-Christianisation of Italy, the re-laicising of France, Brexit Britain – and what’s next, a central European “axis of the willing against illegal immigration” ? – not to mention Trump’s United States, the Russian version including its “liberal-nationalist cocktail”, and the staggeringly violent Turkey, India – we could go on – there are timely and important conclusions we might indeed draw from the Israeli experience that these formulations, like the Facebook poster RE, are instead aimed at removing from contestation.

So I hope we will continue to debate the nature and effects of Zionism, as we consider the banality of evil taking place all around us. Because this is one way to show solidarity with the predicament in which the Israeli people find themselves, and do more than bear agonised witness to the violence that results. Meanwhile, if this argument is to be taken seriously, popular movements like Standing Together, pioneers in the social change that can liberate Israelis from this lethal logic, are an avant-garde from whom we all have much to learn.

Brexit means civil war

In investigating nationalisms we have been talking about fictions that seem to amplify the power of the individual at the same time as they enrich our lives in their lived reality. These fictional realities are essentially ideological formations, and ideologies always have exactly the dual character that we have been exploring here. Are they false? Not at all. The nineteenth century novel can tell us more about life then than many a drier document of fact. At the same time, we recognise that the fiction has other intentions. It is designed to produce pleasure, promise a happy ending and perform other functions not strictly to do with reflecting reality. The same is true of ideologies.

These visions of what we have in common can really unite people, and they can exact enormous sacrifices. They can be rich and revealing in their vocabularies and their assumptions about the world. Moreover, there is no form of lived reality which can detach itself from ideology to know the world directly, without any vocabulary or assumptions.

At the same time, in having the function of making sense of our world, ideologies necessarily aim for closure. They do this in many different ways, all summed up in the classic Marxist reading in the function of repressing contradiction by producing a smooth surface over reality – hence the unitary or monocultural compunction. This smooth surface holds for a while, making us feel whole, until history and the world moves on, and then, as with the NHS or the BBC, the contradictions in the narratives we use to explain our experience begin once again to disturb and fragment that surface.

For this reason, ideologies are simultaneously our only way of knowing about the world, and a way of knowing the world which always and increasingly contains an element of not wishing to know. Bertolt Brecht, that canny baiter of dominant ideologies in his time, surely put his finger on one key aspect of what nationalism didn't want to know when he wrote: “Unhappy the land that is in need of heroes”.

To grapple with Brexit, however, I need to return to the work of Giorgio Agamben, and his ideological deconstruction of a key Brexit category in “What is a People?”. The essay opens with him pointing to the deeply ambivalent nature of “the people” in modern European languages, beginning with its use in the French Revolution at the very moment in which the people’s sovereignty was proclaimed as a principle. At one and the same time, he points out, “the people” represents the body politic as a whole, and a dispossessed subgroup of the poor, the excluded and underprivileged:

“Even the English people – whose sense is more undifferentiated – does retain the meaning of ordinary people as opposed to the rich and the aristocracy. In the American Constitution one thus reads without any sort of distinction: ‘We, the people of the United States…’; but when Lincoln in the Gettysburg Address invokes a ‘government of the people, by the people, for the people,’ the repetition implicitly sets another people against the first.”

What is fascinating about this opening move in an essay which gathers increasingly devastating analytical force as it unravels this conundrum, is how similar it is to an account of how ideologies fundamentally work. In the 1970’s, when wordplay was fashionable, Ros Coward and John Ellis in ‘Language and Materialism: developments in semiology and the theory of the subject’, gave us a definition which I believe has stood the test of time, “the function of ideology is to fix the individual in place as subject for a certain meaning. This is simultaneously to provide the individual with a certain subject-ivity… and to subject them to the social structure with its existing contradictory relations and powers.” This subjectivity simultaneously involves a recognition that enables the subject to act, and a misrecognition, since, “The individual lives his subject-ion to social structures as a consistent subject-ivity, an imaginary wholeness… a reflection of himself as the author of his actions.” 

By these accounts, the identification of the individual with the Monocultural National Us is an ideological move which represses the contradictions in which we live, in order to be able to assert our own importance and agency, in this case against the evidence of our subjection. We know who we are, is the statement. And we know if you are one of us.

This very certainty about what ‘we know’ which dismisses any challenge and refuses any elaboration is the regular mark of ideology. We can hear it when Michael Dobbs defines what the BBC brings to the nation in 2015, “The House of Lords Communications Committee… decided there was no clear definition of what Public Service Broadcasting is – but it didn't matter. It's the sort of thing we all recognise. When it hits you… one of the essential characteristics of Public Service Broadcasting, it seems to me, is that it must be a window into the nation's soul. Our ways, our values, our qualities. What makes us different.” 

Dobbs is following in a noble British tradition of uncodified non-explanation, as we read in Paddy Scannel’s history of the BBC:

"It is well known that broadcasting in Britain is based on the principle of public service, though what exactly that means can prove elusive. The most recent Parliamentary committee to report on broadcasting, the Peacock Committee, noted in 1986 that it has experienced some difficulty in obtaining a definition of the principle from the broadcasters themselves. A quarter of a century earlier, the members of the Pilkington Committee on Broadcasting were told by the Chairman of the BBC’s Board of Governors that it was no use trying to define good broadcasting – one recognised it. With the passing of time the concept has become more and more obscure. Most commentators rightly attribute a central role in the definition to John Reith but few have attempted to go much further…. Briggs summarises Reith’s concept of public service as… There is no mention of its political significance.”

And we hear it again in recent times, in the brazen circularity and withholding of meaning which is Theresa May’s counter-intuitive claim that ‘Brexit means Brexit’. Here, the very circularity announces a deep contract with the people. “Join me in knowing who we are – the people of Britain taking back control, and in the very process giving up any questions you may ask, shedding all the conflicting interests, ignoring all the contradictions, and asserting, with me, the people’s will …. You will be delivered from the servitude, the exclusion and humiliation of Agamben’s ordinary people. You will take back control and in one stroke, be in possession once again of what makes us different, and that which, unquestioned, makes us whole.”

Theresa May knew exactly what her job was when the Brexit referendum delivered its surprise result, if never so clearly since then. Here she is setting out her vision for running Britain in her Birmingham speech to delegates on Oct 5, 2016, and talking revolution:

“But change has got to come too because of the quiet revolution that took place in our country just three months ago — a revolution in which millions of our fellow citizens stood up and said they were not prepared to be ignored any more. Because this is a turning point for our country. A once-in-a-generation chance to change the direction of our nation for good. To step back and ask ourselves what kind of country we want to be…

 

It was about a sense — deep, profound and let’s face it often justified — that many people have today that the world works well for a privileged few, but not for them… And the roots of the revolution run deep. Because it wasn’t the wealthy who made the biggest sacrifices after the financial crash, but ordinary, working class families…

 

But today, too many people in positions of power behave as though they have more in common with international elites than with the people down the road, the people they employ, the people they pass in the street. But if you believe you’re a citizen of the world, you’re a citizen of nowhere. You don’t understand what the very word “citizenship” means.

 

So if you’re a boss who earns a fortune but doesn’t look after your staff . . .  An international company that treats tax laws as an optional extra . . .  A household name that refuses to work with the authorities even to fight terrorism . . .  A director who takes out massive dividends while knowing that the company pension is about to go bust . . . I’m putting you on warning. This can’t go on any more…

 

That means tackling unfairness and injustice, and shifting the balance of Britain decisively in favour of ordinary working class people… Because too often that isn’t how it works today. Just listen to the way a lot of politicians and commentators talk about the public. They find your patriotism distasteful, your concerns about immigration parochial, your views about crime illiberal, your attachment to your job security inconvenient. They find the fact that more than 17 million voters decided to leave the European Union simply bewildering…”

For an Establishment appreciation for the centrality of this key rhetorical intervention, and the huge problem presented by its remaining just that – rhetoric – see Sebastian Payne's FT column for August 7, 2018, Forget Brexit, Britain is failing to tackle its 'burning injustices'. The brazen cheek of it is breathtaking. And more or less exactly the same message was uttered by her American counterpart in his inaugural speech: again, brazen, and breathtaking:

“Today’s ceremony, however, has very special meaning. Because today we are not merely transferring power from one Administration to another, or from one party to another – but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the American People.

 

For too long, a small group in our nation’s Capital, has reaped the rewards of government while people have borne the cost. Washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered period, but the jobs left and the factories closed. The establishment protected itself but not the citizens of our country. Their victories have not been your victories. Their triumphs have not been your triumphs and while they celebrated in our nation's capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.”

These are leaders of the people tapping into archaic managerial wisdoms, perhaps planned long before the financial crisis of 2008, but anticipating the fall-out of such an inevitable occurrence and knowing in those circumstances what they have to do.

But I don’t want to concentrate on the very obvious Monocultural National Us that has arisen in our midst to Ukipise Britain’s Conservative party. You can easily fill in all the gaps for yourself, from what has been said so far, brought up to date by Adam Ramsay on the no-deal Brexit that Britain’s hard Brexiters never mention but actually want. Chillingly, this scenario is made more likely because of the impossibility of assembling positive majorities for any single Brexit option, since it is the only option that doesn't require one. So much for ensuring consent.

Instead, I would like to point to a second Monocultural National Us that has been in formation since the referendum in 2016, and whose recent emergence in our midst leads to similar dangers.

Anthony Barnett has written better than anybody on the two warring factions that have emerged from this toxic debate and polarised the country, in his ‘How to win the Brexit Civil War. An open letter to my fellow Remainers’. He is surely right to warn us against the violence lurking in the gathering confrontation, and implicit in the enemy images that he summarises. What he calls this “civil war” has already tragically claimed the life of one young and dedicated MP.

Yet the winner take-all-character of the contest he describes continues in both camps. Neither ‘Us’ is sharing useable plans for the country’s future. They are too busy projecting their people as the whole people, either on the grounds of the scanty advantage of the referendum result, which is declared to be the ‘people’s will’, or on the thin grounds that Leavers must see that they couldn’t have been more stupid. The Remainers whom Barnett tries to chastise into a more respectful stance, have been calculating what it would take to reverse the referendum, 52%: 48% in their favour, given for example the demise of enough older Leave voters. They too have a certainty, a vision, of a quite different ‘people’s will’, better informed maybe – this is surely where Michael Sandel’s ‘meritocratic hubris’ has its provocative part to play? – but which still shows no real interest in the diversity of the permanently absent people whom they claim to represent.

Whether we are promised a return to the centre ground, delivery from right and left extremists alike, or a government for the nation with an extra dash of Cold War thrown in  – isn’t a ‘People’s Vote’ billed as designed to ‘Stop Brexit’ only a mirror reflection of the ‘people’s will’ behind little global Britain ‘taking back control’? Like the latter, it admits of no relationship except hostility to the many Leaver worlds outside it, and no awareness of the many different Remainer strands within its ranks. Nick Inman is surely correct when he says in his recent openDemocracy contribution on ‘6 Un-British Brexit myths’: “I have never heard anyone speak up for those who think the EU is a terrible thing but on balance, the UK should stay in for a little while longer and figure out the best course of action calmly.”

These two warring Us’s, taken together, mark the radical decline, if not the end of the élite manufacture of consent. And this is without even mentioning the illicit forces behind Cambridge Analytica, Aggregate IQ and the Vote Leave campaign, working very effectively for the élite manufacture of civil wars they intend to win. Yet this development marks an extraordinary moment in human affairs, when for the first time the future defence of democracy may depend not only on the ‘democratic media’ Adam Ramsay would bring to the rescue, but on giving internet users the rights of opting in (or not) to any dominant ideology with which they may be targeted.

The Monocultural National Us wreaks havoc all over the world. How do we loosen its grip on our imaginations, and what might this mean for the defence of our democracies?

lead Donald Trump and Theresa May hold a joint press conference at Chequers, July 2018. Stefan Rousseau/ Press Association. All rights reserved.

I want to apply the criteria for a ‘healthy nationalism’ sketched in part two to two cases of the Monocultural National Us that have been causing havoc in our midst: the use of the word Zionism as a pejorative; and the two warring versions of ‘Us’ in Brexit Britain.

Talking about Zionism

Here it is an altercation between two Facebook posters. It strikes me as mild but typical in the long-gathering process of accusation that has accompanied any enlightenment the IHRA definition (plus examples) of “anti-semitism” has afforded since it reappeared over the horizon, despite noble attempts since the OSCE Berlin Declaration of 2002 kick-started this process, to point out its inherent flaws. Here, GLG and RE are discussing "a thoughtful and thought-provoking piece on this thorny topic."

“GLG When I claim to be anti-zionist, what I mean is I am opposed to the colonialist actions of a succession of Israeli governments - especially the current one under Netanyahu, and the Settler Movement. Who, aided and protected by the IDF, are blatantly evicting Palestinians and taking their land and property for themselves. I also hold the strong conviction that Israel should withdraw to its pre-1967 borders and that all sequestered lands should be returned to their rightful owners. I do NOT mean reversing the historical fact of Israel's creation, even though I do believe that the way that it was done in the first place was grossly mishandled - for which the UK is most to blame.

 

RE Best not to define that as anti Zionist then - your position is clear when you define it the way you do here, but will be understood differently if you call yourself an anti Zionist.”

What is interesting about RE’s response is that it contains no criticism of GLG’s analysis, but warns against the offence that may nevertheless be given attached to the role of the ‘anti-Zionist.’ This is meant to be a helpful warning. But it is a confused one, and repeated in many places, has led to a chilling effect on debate around the relationship of Israel and Palestine, when that debate is surely crucial for progress in the world.

It is a confusion at many levels, beginning with the fundamental problem shared by definitions of antisemitism with hate speech legislation generally, the minute it moved beyond the relative clarity of  ‘incitement to violence’, which is that the meaning of language is crucially determined by context, and that exactly the same phrase can mean completely different things uttered by different people in different situations. Even statements calling for the destruction of the state of Israel mean something very different when yelled by a young Palestinian, trapped in the Occupied Territories and humiliated by the experience of occupation, from, say, the opinion of a Middle East military man with influence over the development of a nuclear arsenal in his country.

But setting aside this comprehensive dilemma, and all the uncertainty around who is qualified as a result to judge the use of certain formulations and expressions, let alone an appropriate response… the concept of Zionism has a particularly vexed history thought-provokingly described in openDemocracy by Jonathan Shamir, who also concludes, though with more clarity than RE, that “ these polarising terms should be shelved, and taken out only when we are discussing political philosophy, which most of the time we are not.”

I hope I may be forgiven by him for what follows, on the grounds that it is Zionism as a term of political philosophy that concerns me. In the accusations and counter-accusations around the term Zionist, I want to argue that what those who are avowedly anti-Zionist often fail to articulate is the Monocultural National Us which lurks implicitly in its definition, with all the results in terms of violence that concern us most about bad nationalism. When they spell out what they criticise about Zionist support for the Israeli state, there are controversial analogies with apartheid, disputes about the precise nature of a colonial-settler state, all sorts of ways of trying to pin down what is uniquely appalling to them about Israeli policies with regard to Palestinians. All versions of course are furiously pushed back, and accompanied by the statement that has been given new topicality by Trump’s decision to pull out of the ‘cesspool of political bias’ which he alleges is the UN Human Rights Council, on the grounds that Israel is being singled out for special opprobrium in a way that can only be antisemitic, when there are many other – the implication is far worse – transgressors who are even members of that Council.

Trump doesn’t attempt to explain, of course, why the US singles out Israel for its special protection, considerable support and military alliance, one reason for the dismay in what used to be thought of as the free or civilised world at the impunity with which Israel acts towards the Palestinians.

The Zionist state claims to be especially for Jewish people: in fact it goes out of its way to offer Jewish people everywhere a special access to its citizenship. In this regard, and because Jewishness is linked to race and religion, it is very easy to make the mistake of seeming to criticise Jewishness when criticising the actions of the Israeli nation state. And it is not quite so simple as following the advice that one should always differentiate between criticism of the state and criticism of the Israeli people, in a situation in which so many Israeli citizens seem to have bought into the Monocultural National Us.

However it is not surprising that they have. Given the history of antisemitism, fear and violence in which the state was born, it is actually almost obvious that in this context the ‘Never again’ of World War II should with very little encouragement become, let us always have the upper hand and never be weak or frightened again. And as we have seen, that is not a million miles away from the basic building bricks of the Monocultural National Us, which always in the end requires a Them. So it is not at all surprising that internally in Israel, the exclusion and discrimination against its Palestinian minority (around 20 per cent of the population) has become entrenched over the years in laws that are deemed to “preserve the ability to realize the Zionist dream in practice”. It is not surprising that human rights, particularly minority and migrant rights are on the run in Israel, or that the Knesset Presidency recently disqualified a bill named: “Basic Law: Israel [is a] State for All its Citizens”. And it is not at all surprising that the projected external enemy that always returns to threaten one’s peace has been steadily turning the Occupied Territories into a large open air prison that is a reproach and scandal to us all. Because this is the logic and inevitable destiny of the Monocultural National Us, and it is precise to criticise Zionism as the political philosophy which underpins the Israeli state, because it is (or has become) this type of National Us, backed by the violence of the state that Zionism is committed to, and it is in the nature of that same economy of desire that, unless it is recognised for what it is and stopped, it must lead to all this violence.

But doesn’t Trump have a point? There is something extremely normal, even mundane, about what is wrong with the Israeli nation state in its response to Palestinians, and it is not very different at all from the European nation-state that was its model, only differing recently in the degree of violence internal and external that it has been willing to undertake in perpetuation of that model.

This is precisely where three of the examples of what could be considered antisemitism “taking into account the overall context”, given the then new EUMC definition of antisemitism which was the precursor to the IHRA definition – take their aim:

‘Denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination, e.g., by claiming that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavour.’

‘Applying double standards by requiring of it a behaviour not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation.’

‘Drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis.’

By these definitions, Jacqueline Rose’s thoughtful book The Question of Zion (2005), could be said to have transgressed on all three counts, when it argued that, “Zionism …imported into the Middle East a Central European concept of …organic nationhood, founded on ethnicity and blood (or “land, descent and the dead”)… the very version of nationhood from which the Jewish people had had to flee.”

What we are meant to conclude from these warning definitions is that an Israeli democracy so constituted has as much right to pursue such policies as any other democracy similarly constituted. But Rose’s point is the opposite one: that the rigour with which Israel pursues the defence of a state based on racial and religious unity makes it a stark and leading example of the inevitably racist and self-defeating outcome of ‘organic nationhood’.

And not only ‘organic nationhood’. At a time when most European countries are engaged in a decisive worldwide swing towards the defence of various monocultural constructions of the ‘National Us’ – for example, not just Hungary or Poland, but the re-Christianisation of Italy, the re-laicising of France, Brexit Britain – and what’s next, a central European “axis of the willing against illegal immigration” ? – not to mention Trump’s United States, the Russian version including its “liberal-nationalist cocktail”, and the staggeringly violent Turkey, India – we could go on – there are timely and important conclusions we might indeed draw from the Israeli experience that these formulations, like the Facebook poster RE, are instead aimed at removing from contestation.

So I hope we will continue to debate the nature and effects of Zionism, as we consider the banality of evil taking place all around us. Because this is one way to show solidarity with the predicament in which the Israeli people find themselves, and do more than bear agonised witness to the violence that results. Meanwhile, if this argument is to be taken seriously, popular movements like Standing Together, pioneers in the social change that can liberate Israelis from this lethal logic, are an avant-garde from whom we all have much to learn.

The nineteenth century novel can tell us more about life then than many a drier document of fact. At the same time, we recognise that the fiction has other intentions.

“Today’s ceremony, however, has very special meaning. Because today we are not merely transferring power from one Administration to another, or from one party to another – but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the American People.

 

For too long, a small group in our nation’s Capital, has reaped the rewards of government while people have borne the cost. Washington flourished, but the people did not share in its wealth. Politicians prospered period, but the jobs left and the factories closed. The establishment protected itself but not the citizens of our country. Their victories have not been your victories. Their triumphs have not been your triumphs and while they celebrated in our nation's capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.”

These are leaders of the people tapping into archaic managerial wisdoms, perhaps planned long before the financial crisis of 2008, but anticipating the fall-out of such an inevitable occurrence and knowing in those circumstances what they have to do.

But I don’t want to concentrate on the very obvious Monocultural National Us that has arisen in our midst to Ukipise Britain’s Conservative party. You can easily fill in all the gaps for yourself, from what has been said so far, brought up to date by Adam Ramsay on the no-deal Brexit that Britain’s hard Brexiters never mention but actually want. Chillingly, this scenario is made more likely because of the impossibility of assembling positive majorities for any single Brexit option, since it is the only option that doesn't require one. So much for ensuring consent.

Instead, I would like to point to a second Monocultural National Us that has been in formation since the referendum in 2016, and whose recent emergence in our midst leads to similar dangers.

Anthony Barnett has written better than anybody on the two warring factions that have emerged from this toxic debate and polarised the country, in his ‘How to win the Brexit Civil War. An open letter to my fellow Remainers’. He is surely right to warn us against the violence lurking in the gathering confrontation, and implicit in the enemy images that he summarises. What he calls this “civil war” has already tragically claimed the life of one young and dedicated MP.

Yet the winner take-all-character of the contest he describes continues in both camps. Neither ‘Us’ is sharing useable plans for the country’s future. They are too busy projecting their people as the whole people, either on the grounds of the scanty advantage of the referendum result, which is declared to be the ‘people’s will’, or on the thin grounds that Leavers must see that they couldn’t have been more stupid. The Remainers whom Barnett tries to chastise into a more respectful stance, have been calculating what it would take to reverse the referendum, 52%: 48% in their favour, given for example the demise of enough older Leave voters. They too have a certainty, a vision, of a quite different ‘people’s will’, better informed maybe – this is surely where Michael Sandel’s ‘meritocratic hubris’ has its provocative part to play? – but which still shows no real interest in the diversity of the permanently absent people whom they claim to represent.

Whether we are promised a return to the centre ground, delivery from right and left extremists alike, or a government for the nation with an extra dash of Cold War thrown in  – isn’t a ‘People’s Vote’ billed as designed to ‘Stop Brexit’ only a mirror reflection of the ‘people’s will’ behind little global Britain ‘taking back control’? Like the latter, it admits of no relationship except hostility to the many Leaver worlds outside it, and no awareness of the many different Remainer strands within its ranks. Nick Inman is surely correct when he says in his recent openDemocracy contribution on ‘6 Un-British Brexit myths’: “I have never heard anyone speak up for those who think the EU is a terrible thing but on balance, the UK should stay in for a little while longer and figure out the best course of action calmly.”

These two warring Us’s, taken together, mark the radical decline, if not the end of the élite manufacture of consent. And this is without even mentioning the illicit forces behind Cambridge Analytica, Aggregate IQ and the Vote Leave campaign, working very effectively for the élite manufacture of civil wars they intend to win. Yet this development marks an extraordinary moment in human affairs, when for the first time the future defence of democracy may depend not only on the ‘democratic media’ Adam Ramsay would bring to the rescue, but on giving internet users the rights of opting in (or not) to any dominant ideology with which they may be targeted.

          Republicans Frustrate Compromise Efforts      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Image result for The Southern Dream of a Caribbean Empire: 1854-1861, Robert E. May,

Well-aware of his meager claim to electoral victory with only 39% of the popular vote, Lincoln told Republican Congressman James Hale of Pennsylvania that supporting the compromise plan of Kentucky’s John J. Crittenden would mean the end of the Republican Party and of his new government. During several compromise efforts between December 1860 and March, 1861, Lincoln wrote important Republican leaders in Congress to oppose any settlement with the South, which of course ensured secession and his war upon the South. Again, it is clear that the cause of secession and war was the Republican Party, and Lincoln placing party survival over saving the Founders’ Union.
Bernhard Thuersam, www.Circa1865.org   The Great American Political Divide

Republicans Frustrate Compromise Efforts

“[Crittenden desperately] was trying to halt what he called the “madness” possessing the South and begged northerners in Congress to make the “cheap sacrifice” and “little concessions of opinions” that his pan required in order to save the country.

Crittenden directed his plea primarily to Republicans. They held the balance of power in Congress, and their reaction would decide the fate of the Crittenden program. Northern Democrats who had been traditionally more conciliatory toward the South . . . could be expected to give the program substantial support.

Some Republicans agreed with Crittenden that a few concessions to the South to preserve the union might be worthwhile, if the price was not too high. From the beginning, [Republican] antagonism doomed Crittenden’s high hopes [though] Unionists in both houses of Congress, however, fought for legislation that encompassed Crittenden’s plan.

In the lower house, on December 5 [1860], Alexander Boteler of Virginia successfully moved that a committee of one member from each State (the Committee of Thirty Three) be established to work out a plan to save the Union. Republicans cast every negative vote on the resolution, giving an early indication that they were opposed to compromise. Republicans blocked every other compromise measure suggested in the Committee of Thirteen.

Crittenden’s followers still refused to admit defeat. The Virginia legislature invited all the States to send representatives to a “Peace Conference” in Washington in February. Although none of the States that had already seceded sent delegates, twenty-one States did join the conference. Once again Republican leaders opposed compromise plans, claiming they did not want to cripple Lincoln’s freedom to deal with secession by committing him to a program before his inauguration.

An Indiana Republican delegate wrote to his governor from the conference: “We have thus done all in our power to procrastinate, and shall continue to do so, in order to remain in session until after [Lincoln’s inauguration on] the 4th of March.” The Senate voted on the original Crittenden plan and defeated it by a 20 to 19 vote. Not one Republican supported the plan.

The Republican decision to frustrate compromise efforts was one of the most significant political decisions in American history. Although it would be unreasonable to assert that had Republicans supported compromise they would definitely have ended the secession movement and prevented the Civil War, such a result was quite possible given the wide support that Crittenden’s plan attracted.

All the pro-Southern aspects of the compromise disturbed the Republicans; but their ire was raised in particular by the territorial provisions. The Republican party’s strength was contained in its antislavery wing, which was held together by opposition to any expansion of slavery [into the territories].

Had Republicans abandoned their opposition to slave expansion in 1860, they would have committed political suicide. Such a concession to the South would have constituted a repudiation of their own platform, “an admission that Southern complaints were valid,” and a confession that Lincoln’s election as president warranted secession.

Republican voters by the thousands cautioned their congressmen and leaders not to compromise with the South and agitated at home against conciliation, as when Pittsburgh Republicans broke up a unionist meeting by turning off the gas, smashing seats, and yelling “God d —-n John J. Crittenden and his compromise.”

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




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




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

Quote: "Intermountain Gas has received more than 100 calls reporting a gas odor in and around Kuna, according to the Kuna Fire Department. The cause of the odor has not been determined yet. The Kuna Fire Department first received reports of the gas odor at 6 a.m. Monday. Intermountain Gas investigated and found there were no breaches or leaks in their system. By 1 p.m. Monday, the smell had gone away, but reports started again around 3 a.m. Tuesday and lasted until 11 a.m."

Quote: "Intermountain Gas technicians have responded to roughly 100 calls about a natural gas-like odor."

Quote: "In a statement issued Wednesday afternoon, The L & R Group said results from a third-party tester to determine if its facility is the source of the smell have been inconclusive. The company also said: 'While our facility does produce odors under certain conditions, we have never had any complaints of smell outside a two-mile radius of our facility. Based on historical information it is unlikely that the smell at our facility is traveling as much as twenty miles, as reported by some.'"

Note: So some people wanna blame a wastewater pond, but independent testing has been unable to verify that, and the company who owns the pond thinks that it's unlikely any odor from their pond could travel 20 miles. So, back to rotten egg odor from unknown source...

http://www.earth.com/news/climate-change-forests-methane/

Quote: "Trees, plants and soil play a vital role in absorbing and preventing many of the greenhouse gases responsible for global warming from entering the earth's atmosphere. But a new paper from researchers at the Advanced Science Research Center (ASRC) at The Graduate Center of The City University of New York finds that the existing effects of global warming are decreasing the soil's ability to absorb methane gas--one of the major drivers of global temperature increases--and creating a positive feedback loop between the effects of global warming and the variables that cause it."

Note: And there's yet another self-reinforcing feedback. As the world warms, the plants, trees and soil absorb less methane, so more methane accumulates in the atmosphere, which causes more warming, which causes less methane to be absorbed AND causes more methane to be released, which causes more methane to accumulate in the atmosphere, etc, etc. This is only one of the degrading methane sinks. Another big methane sink involves hydroxyl radicals in the atmosphere, and the amount of hydroxyl radicals in the atmosphere is also in decline...

Officials say United Airlines Flight 4697 from Washington to Providence, Rhode Island was diverted about 2 p.m. Tuesday. About 50 people were evacuated from the twin-engine Embraer ERJ-145 regional jet and bused to a terminal."

Note: This is the 132nd aircraft to smoke/burn/explode in 2018. In all of 2017, 116 planes came down smoking or burning or exploded, so we're already well past that count, with nearly five months to go in the year.

"You can learn to change the world or go on being changed by it."

Dragon's Gate, p. 35

When I think of the nationwide railroad that was built in America during the nineteenth century, I tend to picture a young Abraham Lincoln driving in railway spikes, tough young guys hardening their muscles and working at all hours and through the night, and a spirit of general camaraderie that united our country in its fledgling days. I did not, prior to reading this book, think of thousands of imported Chinese workers who came to America with hope, only to be stripped of their dignity and worker's rights.

Otter, a Chinese teenager who has inadvertently come into some trouble in his home Chinese province, departs his tumultuous homeland to join his father and Uncle Foxfire in "The land of the Golden Mountain", aka America. Otter is excited by the chance to join his Uncle Foxfire in the work that has made him a legend in China, building up a reputation at the Golden Mountain until one day he will be able to return to China and take it back from the Manchu revolutionaries who have turned his country upside down.

While the United States may have been a place of equality for all westerners, however, upon arrival in America Otter soon learns that Chinamen do not necessarily fit into that picture of equality. After making his way to the mountain where his uncle and father work at trying to bore a tunnel for the new railway, Otter is told that he will be required to stay and work among the men, even in the dangerous freezing winter conditions, and that the westerners have broken nearly all of their promises to the Chinese laborers about working conditions.

Watching the transformative process that affects Otter's new life is fascinating. Not only do we see the subtle changes occur within his own heart and mind, but we, as well, are able to be changed by the wisdom that Otter experiences through the lives of the hardworking men around him. All of Otter's preconceived notions about Foxfire's heroism are severely challenged yet somehow, ultimately, find their lasting root in parts of Foxfire's personality that have always remained hidden from Otter beneath the surface, in areas that could only have been found by living in close proximity to his uncle for many months.

Author Laurence Yep not once glamorizes the courage of the Chinese workers beyond the dictates of reality, yet the view of their lives and character, as a unit, shows a passionate strength that no reader will ever be able to forget. The thought processes of the Chinese workers is vastly different from their American counterparts, but their weaknesses are balanced by some areas in which they view the world with a kind of wisdom that is unknown to the westerners.

This is an important story, I think. It definitely is an example of first-class writing and story building all the way, and it hooks in exceptionally to an historical tale about a mistreated group of thousands who finally banded together to take back their rights. It is also a superior cultural novel about growing up in another nation among strangers, and finding peace with one's own decisions and the responsibility that one has to those around oneself.

          Drug company lawsuit could delay execution      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Lincoln, Neb. -  A pharmaceutical company has filed a lawsuit to prevent Nebraska from using lethal injection drugs next week in what would be the state's first execution since 1997.

The lawsuit filed late Tuesday could delay the Aug. 14 execution of Carey Dean Moore, who was sentenced to death for killing two Omaha cab drivers in 1979. Moore has stopped fighting the state's efforts to execute him.

State officials have refused to say identify the source of their drugs.
However, the pharmaceutical company, Fresenius Kabi, alleges that the correctional department's supply of potassium chloride is stored in 30 milliliter vials. Fresenius Kabi says it's the only company that makes vials in that size.

The company takes no position on capital punishment but opposes the use of its products in executions.


          How the director of 'The Meg' set out to make the most fun movie of the summer — and not rip off 'Jaws'      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The Meg 2 Warner Bros.Warner Bros.

  • "The Meg" director Jon Turteltaub explains how he made sure not to do a remake of "Jaws" while making his shark movie.
  • "The Meg," starring Jason Statham, is based on a novel about a massive shark known as a megalodon thought to be extinct since prehistoric times.


“You can win an Oscar if you do a shark movie where the shark represents some grand flaw in mankind’s soul,” director Jon Turteltaub told Business Insider over the phone in a moment of contemplation. “But in this case, I wanted to do a movie where the shark represents a big f--king shark!”

Turteltaub went into making Warner Bros.’ late-summer, $130-million-plus blockbuster “The Meg” (in theaters Friday) with one goal in mind: let the audience have fun. His favorite movie of all time is “Jaws,” and he said fun was the one thing he leaned on when deciding to take this project.

Steven Spielberg’s three-time Oscar winning classic isn’t just the greatest shark movie ever, but also launched the Hollywood summer blockbuster season. Turteltaub knew in his gut he could make “The Meg.” But the challenge he faced was to figure out how to make a summer shark movie that audiences wouldn’t feel was just a rip-off of “Jaws.”

The Meg Bantam BooksBantam Books“The Meg” is based on the 1997 Steve Alten book, “Meg: A Novel of Deep Terror,” which follows the adventures of Navy deep-sea diver Jonas Taylor as he combats the thought-to-be-extinct massive shark known as a megalodon, which ruled the deep oceans in prehistoric times. (The gory sci-fi book launched a series of novels with titles like “MEG: Hell’s Aquarium” and “MEG: Generations.”)

It was the kind of story Hollywood had to get a piece of. The rights to the book were quickly acquired by Disney, then moved over to New Line where directors like Jan de Bont and Guillermo Del Toro were attached, and finally landed at Warner Bros., where Turteltaub took the reins.

“It was really quick, I think I signed on in March [of 2016] and we were shooting in September,” Turteltaub said. “Because of the novels, because of the many lives the project had before I joined, the ball was already rolling and some really smart work had already been done.”

Thanks to Chinese financier Gravity Pictures coming on board to help with the costs, “The Meg” got the blockbuster treatment, with a majority of the production shot in New Zealand (doubling for Singapore) and lots and lots of work put in for CGI and 3D.

Though Turteltaub had practically seen it all in Hollywood — having directed everything from “Cool Runnings” to the “National Treasure” movies — he was shocked by how much work had to be done in post production for the movie.

the meg movieWarner Bros.“When you have this much CG you know it’s going to take at least a year to finish the movie,” he said. “But you also leave a shocking amount of time to do all the 3D work. I couldn’t believe how much time and effort and expertise goes into that. We really needed five months just for that."

Another big change in today’s moviemaking compared to years past was that America no longer dictates when a movie is released.

“It used to be America picked the best date and then the world followed,” Turteltaub said. “Now it’s the best worldwide date and America follows.”

That's especially true when China is behind your movie's financing.

Turteltaub said “The Meg” was completed in the beginning of the year but because Chinese New Year is in February, the thought was it wasn’t a good time to open the movie there. So it got pushed, with August eventually being the right date.

Turteltaub wasn’t too worried when the movie opened because test audiences had given him the only feedback he needed.

Jon Turteltaub Getty finalGetty“I was thrilled how the word ‘fun’ was the first word out of everyone’s mouth regardless of what country we showed it in,” he said. “When someone says your movie is fun, that’s usually the word they say when they don't have something nice to say — but in this case I was going for that response. Not primarily interesting or political or emotional, primarily fun.”

In the movie, action star Jason Statham plays the Jonas Taylor character, who has sworn off the water after previously battling a megalodon (though no one will believe that was what he actually saw). But when he gets word that his ex-wife along with the crew of an underwater research facility are in danger, and that they may have discovered the meg, Jonas has no choice but to throw back on the wetsuit and save the day.

The movie is a mix of outlandish gory action, dark comedy, and a central theme of family, which Turteltaub believes will play well to a global audience. And in staying away from “Jaws,” he intentionally flipped the structure so the part of the movie when beachgoers are rudely visited by the meg, which suddenly appears from beneath them, comes at the end instead of the first hour of the movie.

“It just gets bigger and more fun,” Turteltaub said of the movie. “Ultimately, I thought of this less as a shark movie and more like a monster movie.”

          The 10 best tallboys $2 can buy      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

It's hot.

This has been true lately pretty much wherever you are, except maybe Antarctica. Blame climate change if you want. Blame the gods. Whatever. It's too hot to think about it.

You deserve a tallboy.

Why a tallboy specifically? Because a 24 oz. can is more than a 12 oz. By drinking a tallboy you're saying, essentially, "I'd like to do more than have one beer but for whatever reason I can't. But I'm going to have the biggest one possible without being one of those irresponsible people who would chug a 40." In other words, it's a sound adult decision.

Here are the 10 best choices for your next tallboy excursion:

10. Icehouse

Because I am not a purveyor of fake news, I am not going to pretend that Natty Ice is some kind of amazing beverage experience. Ditto basically every bear with "ice" in the name. The etymology there should be a dead giveaway. These beers are basically ice water with the tiniest little bit of nail polish remover thrown in there along with chemical rice or corn flavor. They get the job done, if the job is getting you buzzed quickly in an alley or a parking lot, but that's about all that can be said in their favor. The exception to the rule is Icehouse. I couldn't tell you why, but for some reason this one is way more pleasant than any of its competitors. If Miller High Life is the "champagne of beers," Icehouse is the Hendricks of beers you can get more than 20 fluid ounces of for less than two bucks.

9. Old Milwaukee

Old Milwaukee just barely edges out Icehouse because the cans look so cool. It's basically the platonic ideal of what a beer can should like, if by "platonic ideal" we mean "the thing it's easiest to imagine somebody's grandpa drinking after mowing the lawn."

8. Budweiser

Budweiser is fine on draft, great in bottles, and awful in cans. Unless, that is, they are 24 oz. ones. I don't know why this is true but the rule has held up consistently for me over the years.

7. Colt 45

I know it's almost heresy to admit this, but for me Colt 45 is better as a tallboy can than in the iconic 40 oz. bottle. When I was in college I was, very briefly, the editor of a publication called The Fortynightly Review. If I recall correctly we never published anything but the first editorial meeting was great thanks to Colt 45. It's Lando freaking Calrissian's beer.

"Works every time," says the guy who did that little maneuver at the battle of Taanab. What else could you possibly say?

6. Kirin Ichiban

As the geniuses at the old "Stuff White People Like" blog once pointed out, many white people like Japan solely because it allows them to make tedious comments along the lines of, "Well, when I was in Japan, x." Here "x" is almost certainly something about food or drink — e.g., "When I was in Japan, the Kirin tasted way better than it does here." As a fellow white person I can say — without, I hope, anybody calling for my firing — that white people are as usual full of it. Kirin tastes great no matter where you are, especially when it's hot outside. Also: That dragon on the can is just awesome.

5. Coors Light

One time I was editing something by a writer who described someone as "sipping" a Coors Light. I'm not saying this guy was Stephen Glass or whatever, but in the absence of clear video evidence and sworn affidavits affirming that what I'm seeing is not staged, I have to say I find it hard to believe that anybody has ever "sipped" a Silver Bullet. These beers are meant to go down smooth and fast. That's why they have the amazing cold-activated blue mountain logo thing — if the color changes all the way back, you're doing something wrong.

4. Miller High Life

In bottles I tend to think of High Life, with its sparkly amber color and goofy tagline, as more of a novelty than anything else. But when you're in the tallboy mindset it's actually one of the best beers you can drink. Instead of the purely smooth taste you might think is always ideal in these circumstances, High Life is peppery and bright in these big cans.

3. Pabst Blue Ribbon

I get so tired of the dialectic about whether liking Pabst is fine or only for "hipsters," a group of people who stopped existing around the time that Barack Obama asked Mitt Romney to give the '80s back their foreign policy. I don't really care if there was a brief period in the early 2010s when lumbersexual Bon Iver fans drank this because they thought it was funny. My great-grandmother used to drink these every day, and as she reminded me many times when I was a teenager, "Music died with Perry Como!"

2. Naragensett

Naragansett, the preferred beverage of New England fratboys and Quint in Jaws, is brewed in Lincoln Chafee's and H.P. Lovecraft's glorious home state. One of the worst things about living in the Midwest is that it is virtually impossible to get it out here. Somebody should fix that.

1. Coors

Here are some facts about Coors:

• It's brewed from a mountain stream.

• It'll set your head on fire and make your kidneys scream.

• It sure is fine.

• Johnny Paycheck wrote a song about it, which is the source of some of these facts.

• It has been around for a century and a half.

• If you tour the brewery in Golden, Colorado, which is the largest in the world, you get two free beers.

• The best beer in the history of the world is still the best beer in the world if you drink it from a tallboy can instead of the classic "yellow-belly" bottles.

"(...) Nel 1857, su raccomandazione del deputato repubblicano John Bingham e nonostante la famiglia fosse notoriamente di "fede" democratica, George Armstrong Custer fu ammesso all'Accademia Militare degli Stati Uniti d'America di West Point. Di carattere testardo, ribelle, orgoglioso, permaloso, scarso amante dello studio, in pochi mesi raggiunse tante e tali note di demerito da rischiare l'espulsione, evitata, anche in questo caso, per intervento del deputato Bingham. Uniche materie in cui eccelse erano quelle pratiche: scherma, tiro con la pistola, equitazione. (...)" "(...)Dal punto di vista eminentemente tattico, Custer non dimostrò particolare immaginazione nell'esecuzione degli attacchi, limitandosi a sfruttare quello che era il criterio di attacco frontale normalmente insegnato presso le scuole militari dell'epoca e giustificando così l'asserzione di un suo collega che dichiarò che era salito ai vertici della carriera militare «camminando sulla schiena dei suoi soldati caduti in battaglia». Spesso avventato, abituato ad attaccare sempre il nemico anche in condizioni di evidente inferiorità numerica, Custer ebbe di certo dalla sua una notevole fortuna (...) Tuttavia, di fronte alla manifesta inettitudine di altri generali nordisti, i giornali dell'epoca si appropriarono della figura di George Armstrong Custer, facendone l'eroe per eccellenza (...)" "(...) Benché non prevista dall'ordinamento militare, Custer applicò ai disertori la pena di morte, talché, al termine della campagna, fu arrestato, tradotto a Fort Leavenworth e accusato dal Comando supremo di: assenza senza autorizzazione e abbandono del posto di comando (era andato a trovare la moglie abbandonando il reparto in pieno territorio "nemico"); crudeltà verso i propri soldati (tra l'altro aveva fatto colpire alcuni soldati che stavano per disertare, vietando ai medici poi di curarli); abbandono dei corpi di due suoi soldati nelle mani dei nativi americani; mancato intervento in difesa di una postazione attaccata dai nativi americani; comportamento pregiudizievole per il buon ordine e la disciplina militare; distruzione di proprietà del governo. La corte marziale, riunitasi il 15 settembre 1867 a Fort Leavenworth, il 20 novembre successivo giudicò Custer colpevole di tutti i reati ascrittigli (...)" "Lo scalpo di Custer non fu asportato, probabilmente perché al momento dello scontro i suoi capelli erano particolarmente corti avendoli tagliati prima di lasciare Fort Lincoln; questa circostanza rese Custer irriconoscibile agli indiani, e per gran tempo i Sioux ritennero di aver sconfitto un reparto comandato dal generale Crook". Forse non era un codardo (per certo non si sa...), di sicuro era un poco di buono.
          Nixon Resigned 44 Years Ago Today. We're Just Saying, DONALD.      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   


The day Richard Nixon resigned, Yr Dok Zoom was a bit over 12 years old, and while I was a fairly bright kid, I was by no means a sophisticated consumer of news media. That morning, when a special bulletin saying Nixon was expected to resign later that day came on the TV, my first reaction was to run to the phone and call our little town's one radio station, because they offered a ten dollar prize to anyone who offered a news tip they used on the air. I was so disappointed when the guy on the phone said they'd just gotten the same bulletin from a wire service. Kids and their crazy ideas of how the world works! I bet it came on a teletype machine. They used to have teletypes back then.

Another thing they used to have back then was Republican members of Congress who were capable of being shocked by a Republican president's complete disregard for the law. Let's not get overly nostalgic -- plenty of hardcore Nixon supporters were happy to make excuses and blame the Watergate scandal on the Democrats or the liberal press or maybe communists, which seemed at least plausible to my very Catholic, very Republican mother -- who had in 1972 voted not for Nixon, but for certified loon John G. Schmitz, a John Birch Society guy who ran as the nominee of George Wallace's American Independence Party and was the father of Mary Kay Letourneau, that Lifetime Movie come to life teacher who married her elementary school kid. My mom liked the hourlong ad Schmitz ran the week before the election accusing Nixon of going soft on the reds for going to China.


But there were, as we say, Republicans, including Barry Holy Shit Goldwater, willing to tell the President that not only were there enough votes in the House to impeach him, but almost certainly enough votes in the Senate to convict him of high crimes and misdemeanors, which he certainly had to already know himself, since he too had a teletype machine. But that come-to-Jesus meeting the Republicans held with him made the difference, because he'd surrounded himself with so many Yes Men who echoed his own delusions that he needed some outsiders to point him in at least the general direction of reality. It may have taken some doing, since the portrait of Abraham Lincoln he had late-night drunken chats with had reassured him he could prevail against anything if he fought to the very last. It was probably easier for Republicans to deliver harsh truths when they didn't have a majority in either house, honestly.

So Nixon decided he was all out of tricks ("Tricky Dick" was still considered a pretty creative insult in the sixth grade), and he gave an embarrassingly bathetic private farewell speech to his staff* telling them (again) of his humble origins, and reminding them his father was "sort of a little man, common man," and yet "he was a great man, because he did his job, and every job counts up to the hilt." And his mother -- well, his mother was a saint, who'd seen two of her sons die of tuberculosis, and there was a whole lot of saintliness and death in his family. In a blog post on the 40th anniversary of Nixon's resignation, four years ago, editor and writer Larry Wallace notes how brilliantly Nixon connected with his staff and family:

It was at this point in the speech that friend and former counsel Leonard Garment thought to himself, "Oh, my God, he's beginning to break down. A binge of free association. Money, father, mother, brothers, death. The man is unraveling right before us. He will be the first person to go over the edge on live television." David Eisenhower, too, thought his father-in-law was about to crack. He stood beside him along with Nixon's two daughters, Julie and Tricia, and Tricia's husband, Ed Cox. And of course, as ever, there was Pat. Except that Nixon would not mention Pat even once during the speech.

Americans only found that out much later, of course. On that hot afternoon in Oregon, the main thing I was feeling was a sense that this really was historic, and also a keen awareness that the longer it took Nixon to resign, the less time we'd have at the Douglas County Fair that evening, and I'd have to see a cousin's dumb 4-H pig before I could go on any rides and could you please get this over with, Mr. Nixon. Which he did, eventually, on live TV:

Then Jerry Ford became president and Doonesbury imagined a huge wall being taken down outside the White House, but then Ford pardoned Nixon to spare the nation any more agony and we got Jimmy Carter and we moved to Arizona just after the Bicentennial, but I wasn't a hip enough teenager to start watching "Saturday Night Live" until 1978, so I missed the whole first season. Devo was the first musical guest I saw, and they kind of freaked me out.

Oh, yeah, and if you haven't read Rick Perlstein's Nixonland, you're in for a hell of a treat. It's a brilliant examination of how we got from there to here. Unfortunately, it doesn't offer any map for where we go now that we have a president and a Republican Congress who are utterly immune to shame or even basic decency. At least it's a reminder that this dumb country has survived a petty, mendacious prick of a president before.

And now it's your Open Thread.

* Update/correction: I obviously misremembered things -- Nixon's teary awful farewell to White House staff was the next morning, after the resignation on TV. Wonkette regrets the error.

          Robert Spencer Video: Trump May Really Be More Popular Than Lincoln Was      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

The establishment media sneered when President Trump recently noted poll results showing his popularity among Republicans, and stated that he was more popular than Lincoln. Forgotten, however, is the fact that Lincoln was quite unpopular as President, even for statements and actions for which he is now revered.

 


          Trying to understand the logistics of a 403b in relation to bonds and selling      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
I'll try to give a little background to help supplement my questions:



This site has been great as it educated me on the necessity to plan ahead and open up my Roth IRA and a 403b account. Both are less than a year old, however I've fully funded my Roth IRA for this year (and was able to make a full contribution in time for last year too). My Roth is through Vanguard and is comprised mostly of VTI/VXUS however I do have $2,000 invested in BND. This account is hovering around 12K. My 403b account is through a Lincoln Investments Self-Directed Participant Plan, which means I'm able to pick from any Vanguard funds I want. It was opened a couple of months later and I contribute $450 per month into this account ($225 per paycheck). Right now my 403b is hovering around $1,600. 90% of my 403b money contributions goes into VTIVX (2045 Target Date Vanguard Fund). I also have a second fund that I throw 10% of that money in VBTLX (Vanguard Total Bond Market). The reason for this second holding is to try and catch up on my bond allocation because between these two tax-advantaged accounts and my brokerage accounts I'm not yet where I want to be with bonds. I figured the additional holding of VBTLX would help me get to my ideal bond allocation quicker.





After reading more posts on Bogleheads I've learned that, in an ideal world, you hold your bonds in your pre-tax account (such as the 403b) while having stocks, such as VTI/VXUS, in a Roth because of the growth that won't be taxed on it. I understand this concept and I think I would like to ultimately phase out the $2,000 I currently have in the Roth after my bonds have caught up in the 403b.



My questions:



#1: If I were, to say, increase the amount of money I'm contributing in my 403b ($600 instead of $450 per month) and put this excess money into VBTLX, I figure I'll eventually catch up on my bond allocation to the point where I can sell the bonds in my Roth and achieve the goal of not having bonds in my Roth. However, does this limit my flexibility when/if it comes to some possible point where I want to sell some bonds to rebalance because they will only be in my 403b? I have a great understanding of how to utilize my Roth IRA (I wish I could contribute more to it than just the 5,500) because I have control to go in and buy/sell individually whenever I want with no paperwork involved. That flexibility seems to be lost when it comes to the 403b because everything always involves paperwork. I know I can change my contribution amount at anytime, but I don't know a lot of the other logistics. Does re-balancing with bonds become more difficult when they are all held in your 403b versus a Roth?



#2: How exactly does selling work in a 403b? Is this even possible? Do I just have to fill out paperwork that says to sell something? For example, another long-term goal I may have is to eventually stop contributing to the Target Date Fund in my 403b (VTIVX) and just break it down into VTSAX/VTIAX/VBTLX in the future. If I have $20,000 invested in the target date fund does it stay there forever and I just make new contributions moving forward? Or can that money in the target fund be sold and then divided up between whatever funds I would like to buy?



Thanks in advance for the clarity I know I'll get from all of you!

          Interview with Stephen Mack Jones      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
By David Nemeth

Back at the beginning of 2017, Stephen Mack Jones's "August Snow" was published by Soho Crime. It took some time for me to get to it, okay, over a year, and damn was it worth it. I wrote that it was "a fine private detective novel filled with great writing and a timely mystery." If you haven't had a chance to read it, buy it or check it out of your local library. You will not be disappointed.

Stephen Mack Jones
David: A recent review or interview called your book a “sleeper hit.” I don’t know about the hit part, it was much more of a hidden gem. But a lot of that has changed now with the awards: winning the Hammett Prize for Crime Fiction and nominated for the 2018 Shamus Award for Best First Private Eye Novel and Strand Magazine Critics Awards Best First Novel. How did you come to terms with writing what you know was a good novel and then hearing only crickets to the buzz that “August Snow” is getting today?

Steve: I came to peaceful terms with the sound of crickets early on, D.  Frankly, those sounds are the only way I can focus on the job at hand and that’s to create vivid, emotionally engaging stories.  I think any writer who puts the noise of fame, fortune and millions of cheering worldwide fans at the forefront of their storytelling is bound to be sorely disappointed. To be honest with you it was enough for me when my agent called to tell me a publisher made an offer for AUGUST SNOW! I mean, the offer wasn’t nearly enough to nab me that little six-bedroom champagne-and-shrimp shack on the coast of Ibiza—but, come on! Somebody wanted to buy words I’d strung together! And in a traditional publishing world that’s becoming more top-genre exclusive, bestseller-driven and, in some ways, myopic in terms of creative investment, that to me was a major accomplishment. The traditional way to the bookstore—producing the story, finding an agent, trusting that agent to find the right publisher for your work and pocketing an advance—can be a long, hard slog. Fewer and fewer folks find they have the patience for that slog in an age of digital upload and e-book download instant gratification. The traditional way to the bookstore is like choosing to be Sisyphus—the query letters, the rejections, all in an effort to push that 80,000-word manuscript up and over the crest of the hill. I guess my point is, I was well prepared and frankly happy to have sales of the book top out with my mom, brother and maybe a cousin or in-law. At a family discount, of course. Enough copies to say, “Look! I did it! I finally pushed the rock over the hill!” That the book is getting “buzz” these days—curtesy of Soho’s marketing efforts, the Hammett Award and other nominations, and film interest—just gives me a deep sense of satisfaction and gratitude.

David: You come to the novel writing game late in life––you’re giving a 50-something blogger some hope. How has your age helped or hindered you with the publication of “August Snow”?

Steve: I consider myself the poster-elder for AARP and second careers, man! Listen. Everybody knows this is a youth-obsessed culture—and that youth obsession puts a lot of pressure on a person to “succeed” by a certain age. If you haven’t reached your creative and economic life-goals by 25 or 30, then your dreams and ambitions are just fodder for the scrap heap. Might as well just settle in to being a cost-accountant to feed the baby and meet the mortgage. I used to feel that pressure and its awful. It's especially awful if you’re a college-educated minority and you’re hitting walls and pitfalls set up only for you. Something happened to me when I hit forty; I found I really didn’t give a shit about anybody else’s limited timeframe for my success! Success for me after forty simply became a matter of staying true to myself, my family and my writing—whatever came of it. And that’s the attitude that helped me stay true to the storytelling of AUGUST SNOW.

David: The character of August Snow is half African-American and half Mexican American. He grew up outside of both cultures and is always having to prove himself. When we meet Snow, he’s an ex-cop who has turned on crooked cops and now he’s out of that group. In the creation of Snow, you’ve seemed to have isolated him by making it difficult to be part of a group. I thought writers were supposed to like their protagonist. What did Snow ever do to you?

Steve: August and me, we cool, D! Seriously, though, isolation is sometimes the best way to find out who you truly are. Mentally, spiritually and physically. Isolation can help separate the wheat from the chaff so that you become stronger and possess more clarity of purpose. August has certainly walked through fires. And in walking through those fires he has more clarity of who he is: He’s a guy who doesn’t see himself as an ethnic anomaly or racial dichotomy; rather he embraces the best of his two familial cultures. And while his experiences as a Marine and as a Detroit cop may have tested him morally and ethically, he found a way to incorporate the best of both into his personal way of life. So, yeah—I may have knocked him around a bit in AUGUST SNOW and maybe a little bit more in the upcoming LIVES LAID AWAY, but I think he’s a better man for it. Did that sound like something a strict Catholic father would say about a son?

David: Before writing “August Snow”, you’ve written poetry and plays as well as read extensively. At the beginning of the book, you name drop a lot of writers, but one struck me and that was Rudolph Fisher. I have since gone out and purchased “The Conjure-Man Dies”. Can you talk about your writing influences and, in particular, what influenced the writing of “August Snow”?

Steve: You got a couple minutes? I mean, ‘cause a whole bunch of folks have made an impact on me over the years. Everybody from Ray Bradbury, Robert Silverberg, Octavia Butler and Ursula Le Guin to Agatha Christie, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Robert B. Parker and Walter Mosely. And then there are the poets. Always the poets! Frederico Garcia Lorca, Pablo Neruda, Octavio Paz, Nikki Giovanni, Langston Hughes, Rainier Maria Rilke and Seamus Haney. Reading poetry is where I learned—and continue to learn—the weight, color, music, and nuances of words. In some ways, I’d like to think of August Snow as the love-child between Robert B. Parker and Octavio Paz. (That image is going to be in your head for a very—long—time.)

David: I read that your father, who is in his nineties, is a prolific reader. What was it like handing him a copy of your book “August Snow”? And, did he like it?

Steve: My father passed away in 2003 at the age of eighty.  Thirteen years before August Snow. That being said he had an insatiable appetite for reading. From William Shakespeare and George Eliot to Isaac Bashevis Singer, Studs Turkel and The Wall Street Journal. Not bad for a blue-collar guy who quit school in the tenth grade so he could work to financially help out his mom and dad, brothers and sisters.  My mother is, at the age of ninety-three, still a prolific reader.  I’ll never forget visiting her maybe two, three years ago.  She spent nearly an hour regaling me with the many reasons I should read Doris Kearns Goodwin’s Abraham Lincoln biography TEAM OF RIVALS!  Yeah, to be honest with you, I was a bit nervous about my mom reading the book. She’s Catholic and a Puritan at heart. Alcohol and profanity do not cross her lips. Conversely, alcohol and profanity are familiar companions of August’s.  So, yeah—I was afraid she might say, “Your father and I spent a lot of money on your education—and this is how you squander it? Writing about alcohol and guns and sex, never mind the profanity!”  But her reaction after reading the book was very positive and in line with what I’ve heard from a number of other people:  She enjoyed the story, the intrigue and the relationships that are built between the neighbors on Markham Street in Mexicantown. And the food I mention throughout the book made her very hungry!

David: There’s a lot of love for Detroit in “August Snow”. As much as Snow’s life would have been better in Europe where he escaped to after leaving the police force, he felt the pull to come back to the city. For many of us who have only seen news footage of abandoned buildings and talk of debt, can you tell us what makes Detroit so special?

The GM Renaissance Center in Detroit

Steve:
The national news media seems stuck in a mid-to-late-sixties time-loop when it comes to their shorthand assessment of Detroit. They love the pious sound of their own studio voices as they spout unctuous pity for Detroit and its residents: The pervasive poverty. The “ruin porn” of burnt out houses and shuttered factories. The unbridgeable black-white divide. The incompetent and corrupt mismanagement of city government.  The only thing missing from their nightly news assessment of Detroit is black-and-white footage of a concrete wall topped with razor wire and the Stasi scanning the area for defectors trying to escape to Chicago!  Yes, there’s poverty and burnt out houses and shuttered factories—but not of the bizarre all-encompassing magnitude the news media might have you think. To begin with, the city that gave you Motown in the ‘60s and ‘70s has since given the world EDM (Electronic Dance Music) and Techno in the ‘90s and the 21st century. I very much doubt you’d have Diplo, The Crystal Method, Massive Attack, Deadmau5 or Koan Sound if you didn’t first have Kevin Saunderson or Juan Atkins or Derrick May. Artists living on the edges of society: Marginalized black communities. The LGBTQ community. Young people in search of a new audio stimulus.  And from Detroit’s recent bankruptcy woes came a new model for economic sustainability and membership expansion for art museums across the country based on the innovations-by-necessity from the Detroit Institute of Arts. I guess what I’m getting at is the fact that Detroiters are tough. Resilient. We’re fighters and our creativity is at its best when we have to fight. If you’re not from Detroit it’s easy to think one right hook and we hit the mat. But the count never gets to ten because we get back up, bloodied and bruised, and with a smile, we say, “Is that all you got?” Everybody wants the story of the fall. The truth of Detroit’s spirit is how we rise.  Every day. All day.

David: Can one really get good Mexican food in Detroit?

Steve: Oh, hell yes, you can get good Mexican food in Detroit! You can also get good Chinese, Vietnamese, Korean, Indian, Italian and Brazilian!  You want really good Greek souvlaki or Lebanese baba ghanoush? Yeah, we got that! Soul-food from the American South, soul-food from the south of France and the soul-of-soul foods from Nigeria—yeah, no problem.  Did I hear you say sushi? What’chu want, man? California Roll? Spicy Tuna Roll? Come and get you some! Vegetarian and vegan? Try Seva in Midtown, Detroit Vegan Soul on the East Side or The Nosh Pit in Hamtramck. And speaking of Hamtramck—where else you gonna go for really good Polish and Hungarian food? This ain’t a town that makes it easy to go on a diet, ma brotha!

David: Let me give you a chance to promote your new book which is coming out in 2019. Tell me about “Lives Lead Away”. (Pre-order)

Steve: Ya know, D, the last thing you wanna do is give an ex-ad guy a chance to promote something. But since you swung the door wide open, yes, January 8th of 2019 will see the release of the next book in the August Snow series, LIVES LAID AWAY. After the body of a nineteen-year old undocumented Hispanic woman dressed as 17th century French Queen Marie Antoinette is dredged from the Detroit River, August finds himself up against a “lake rat” neo-Nazi biker gang and a rogue Immigration & Custom Enforcement (ICE) unit, both neck-deep in human trafficking. This outing is going to cost August a lot in terms of neighbors and friends, especially when an old nemesis from his Detroit cop days named Marcus “Duke” Ducane plays a dangerous game of up-jump-the-devil. Things get very personal very fast in LIVES LAID AWAY which plays out against a suffocating 90-degree/forty-percent humidity Michigan summer.

David: Give me five books to read, genre doesn’t matter. I was going to ask for only poetry books, but I didn’t want to limit you.

Steve: To begin with I highly recommend either of two non-fiction books by Harry G. Frankfurt, professor emeritus of philosophy at Princeton University: On Bullshit or On Truth. Compact volumes that are amazing studies of—well—bullshit and truth.  I’d also suggest Anna Leigh Clark’s tremendous non-fiction and profoundly moving investigation of the Flint water crisis titled The Poisoned City.  And any time’s a good time to dip into a poetry collection by Seamus Haney, Rainier Marie Rilke or Octavio Paz. Taken in small bites with a nice Pinot Noir, I’d suggest Jim Harrison’s last collection of essays A Really Big Lunch.  Is that five books? I think that’s just four. Okay, last book. For whatever reason I find myself almost on a yearly basis going back to Kurt Vonnegut’s Galapagos. Couldn’t tell you why. Don’t know. It just is. And so it goes . . .

          Poem of the Day: The Whitsun Weddings       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
That Whitsun, I was late getting away:
    Not till about
One-twenty on the sunlit Saturday
Did my three-quarters-empty train pull out,
All windows down, all cushions hot, all sense   
Of being in a hurry gone. We ran
Behind the backs of houses, crossed a street
Of blinding windscreens, smelt the fish-dock; thence   
The river’s level drifting breadth began,
Where sky and Lincolnshire and water meet.

All afternoon, through the tall heat that slept   
    For miles inland,
A slow and stopping curve southwards we kept.   
Wide farms went by, short-shadowed cattle, and   
Canals with floatings of industrial froth;   
A hothouse flashed uniquely: hedges dipped   
And rose: and now and then a smell of grass   
Displaced the reek of buttoned carriage-cloth   
Until the next town, new and nondescript,   
Approached with acres of dismantled cars.

At first, I didn’t notice what a noise
    The weddings made
Each station that we stopped at: sun destroys   
The interest of what’s happening in the shade,
And down the long cool platforms whoops and skirls   
I took for porters larking with the mails,   
And went on reading. Once we started, though,   
We passed them, grinning and pomaded, girls   
In parodies of fashion, heels and veils,   
All posed irresolutely, watching us go,

As if out on the end of an event
    Waving goodbye
To something that survived it. Struck, I leant   
More promptly out next time, more curiously,   
And saw it all again in different terms:   
The fathers with broad belts under their suits   
And seamy foreheads; mothers loud and fat;   
An uncle shouting smut; and then the perms,   
The nylon gloves and jewellery-substitutes,   
The lemons, mauves, and olive-ochres that

Marked off the girls unreally from the rest.   
    Yes, from cafés
And banquet-halls up yards, and bunting-dressed   
Coach-party annexes, the wedding-days   
Were coming to an end. All down the line
Fresh couples climbed aboard: the rest stood round;
The last confetti and advice were thrown,
And, as we moved, each face seemed to define   
Just what it saw departing: children frowned   
At something dull; fathers had never known

Success so huge and wholly farcical;
    The women shared
The secret like a happy funeral;
While girls, gripping their handbags tighter, stared   
At a religious wounding. Free at last,
And loaded with the sum of all they saw,
We hurried towards London, shuffling gouts of steam.   
Now fields were building-plots, and poplars cast   
Long shadows over major roads, and for
Some fifty minutes, that in time would seem

Just long enough to settle hats and say
    I nearly died,
A dozen marriages got under way.
They watched the landscape, sitting side by side
—An Odeon went past, a cooling tower,   
And someone running up to bowl—and none   
Thought of the others they would never meet   
Or how their lives would all contain this hour.   
I thought of London spread out in the sun,   
Its postal districts packed like squares of wheat:

There we were aimed. And as we raced across   
    Bright knots of rail
Past standing Pullmans, walls of blackened moss   
Came close, and it was nearly done, this frail   
Travelling coincidence; and what it held   
Stood ready to be loosed with all the power   
That being changed can give. We slowed again,
And as the tightened brakes took hold, there swelled
A sense of falling, like an arrow-shower   
Sent out of sight, somewhere becoming rain.

          Meet Street Fighter 5's new drop-kicking president      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Gavin Jasper
Aug 9, 2018

G wants to make America great again. And punch things.

At Evo 2018, the weekend was finished off with the top 8 Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition players fighting for supremacy.

Before the virtual bloodshed, producer Yoshinori Ono stepped out to speak about...well, he spoke. It was past midnight, so we were all loopy.

Anyway, he was interrupted by none other than voice actor Christopher Corey Smith, decked out as the new Street Fighter character known only as G, giving a long-winded speech about unity across the globe.

This led to the announcement trailers of the final two characters in Street Fighter V’s third season: G and Sagat.

G is a bizarre hybrid of Abraham Lincoln and Uncle Sam who doesn’t just want to be President of the United States, but President of the world itself. If that wasn’t bonkers enough, his stature, single-letter name, and alternate outfit seem to suggest that he has ties with the enigmatic Street Fighter character Q.

Then there’s Sagat, the King of Muay Thai. Introduced as the final boss in the first Street Fighter, Sagat soon became second-in-command to M. Bison as a member of Shadaloo. Over time, Sagat learned the error of his ways and became one of Ryu’s strongest allies, while remaining one of his most tenacious rivals. Now Sagat washes his hands of his criminal past and spends his days raising his two adopted children and preparing for the day when he will fight Ryu once again.

The good thing about all of this? Capcom pulled a Cloverfield Paradox on us by announcing both new characters and then saying, oh yeah, they’re out now!

With Street Fighter V’s eSports status keeping at it, we’re sure to get a fourth wave of DLC characters soon. We're intrigued to see who will show up, though at this point, it seems like Dan Hibiki is a lock.

          Dinesh D'Souza's lazy, ugly propaganda film      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   


Melissa Joskow / Media Matters

Dinesh D’Souza’s new fake-documentary Death of a Nation opens with Adolf Hitler and his companion Eva Braun grimly committing suicide in the Fuhrerbunker, after which their bodies are hauled up to the streets of war-ravaged Berlin and set on fire. If you were to ask me why the movie opens with this gruesome reenactment, or why D’Souza had the actor portraying the Nazi dictator stare poignantly into the camera before shooting himself in the head, I honestly could not tell you. Nor can I offer any coherent explanation for why this film inflicts several other cinematic retellings of Hitler’s life upon the viewer. None of it is explained, and none of it makes much sense. What I can say is that Death of a Nation is a terrible and disgusting film, even by D’Souza standards.

By now D’Souza’s filmmaking shtick is tiresome and relentlessly predictable: He play-acts at being a public intellectual and haphazardly tortures the historical record in the service of “proving” an ill-considered argument. In the process, he typically ends up accidentally disproving his own thesis and veers off into bigotry. The shodiness of the scholarship is (poorly) papered over with cinematic flourishes and ego-engorging footage of “Dinesh D’Souza: Serious Historian” as he walks around historically significant sites bathing them with terribly meaningful glances. Death of a Nation ticks all these boxes and offers a couple more pathetically self-indulgent twists, like carving out a few minutes of screentime for D’Souza’s wife to warble a treacly song about America.

The thrust of Death of a Nation is that America is at a moment of existential crisis similar to the Civil War, and that the nation will, ahem, die if “the left” (George Soros, antifa, moderate Democrats, whoever) succeeds at whatever nefarious scheme it is assumed to have. The only thing standing between America and its demise is President Donald Trump, whom D’Souza casts as a glittering reincarnation of Abraham Lincoln. D’Souza presents the divide between left and right in hilariously childish terms, describing Democrats and progressives as “the bad guys” (meaning racists and fascists and totalitarians) and Republicans and conservatives as “the good guys” (the opposite of the bad guys). This dynamic has held firm throughout American history, D’Souza argues, and is a global phenomenon as well.

That brings us back to Hitler. D’Souza’s theory of history requires that every villain be of the left, so he is obligated to demonstrate that fascism is actually a left-wing ideology. D’Souza is a late arrival to this rotten exercise in partisan revisionism, and his contributions to it are characteristically lazy. “Check out the official Nazi platform,” D’Souza says. “State-controlled health care, profit-sharing for workers and large corporations, moneylenders and profiteers punished by death, state control of education, state control of media and the press, state control of banks and industries, seizure of land without compensation, state control of religious expression -- this reads like something jointly written by Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders!”

This grotesque comparison required D’Souza to both water down the explicit bigotry of the Nazi platform and impute its totalitarian character to two sitting senators -- one of whom is Jewish, and neither of whom advocate for murdering bankers or call for state-run media, etc. But since D’Souza wants to ply this simple-minded exercise, I’ll point out that the Nazi platform also calls for a ban on immigration, mass deportations, a military buildup, and “legal opposition to known lies and their promulgation through the press.”

Blundering and incendiary allegations of leftist-fascist alignment abound in Death of a Nation. D’Souza argues that Auschwitz doctor and war criminal Josef Mengele was a “progressive” because he performed abortions in South America after the war. “Under Obama, we saw government control increase dramatically over banks, investment companies, energy companies, the entire health care sector, and education,” D’Souza says. “This is state-run capitalism [it isn’t], which is the clinical definition of fascism [it’s not].”

His treatment of Hitler’s relationship with Ernst Röhm, the commander of the Nazi Party paramilitary force Sturmabteilung, clearly demonstrates D’Souza’s pernicious sloppiness. “Some progressives try to portray Hitler as a right-winger by insisting he was anti-gay,” D’Souza says. “But Hitler knew that the brownshirt leader Ernst Röhm was a notorious homosexual, as were many other brownshirts. ... When Heinrich Himmler urged Hitler to purge the gay brownshirts out of the Nazi movement, Hitler refused. Hitler said he didn’t care what the brownshirts did in private, as long as they were good fighters. Hitler was no social conservative.”

This argument is a disgusting whitewash of Nazi terror and is an accidental indictment of social conservatism. To suggest that Hitler was somehow tolerant of (or indifferent to) homosexuality because he declined to persecute the stormtroopers who committed political violence on his behalf deliberately ignores Third Reich’s legal attacks on Germany’s LGBTQ population and the countless LGBTQ people who died in Hitler’s concentration camps. Röhm’s purge was followed by a viciously homophobic propaganda campaign used to justify the action.

And it’s absurd for D’Souza, himself a social conservative, to define “social conservatism” against Hitler’s politically expedient hesitancy to expel/murder gay men from his political movement. If Hitler’s (temporary) unwillingness to do that disqualifies him from the ranks of social conservatives, then what does that say about true social conservatives?

The flipside to D’Souza’s artless smearing of leftists as the “real” fascists is his equally incompetent effort to absolve the right generally (and Donald Trump specifically) of the taint of white supremacy.

D’Souza tries to argue that 2017’s violent white supremacist outburst in Charlottesville, VA, which left one counter-protester dead, had nothing to do with right-wing politics or Donald Trump. “There they are, white supremacists and neo-Nazis in Trump hats,” D’Souza sneers over footage of the Charlottesville rallies. “Doesn’t that prove that racism today is on the right?”

Not at all, D’Souza counters, saying that Charlottesville organizer and white supremacist Jason Kessler was once an Obama supporter. He doesn’t explain why that fact precludes Kessler being a white nationalist Trump supporter now, nor does he explain how it debunks the footage D’Souza himself aired of white supremacists in Charlottesville wearing “Make America Great Again” hats, nor does he address the fact that Trump defended the white nationalist protesters. He just makes a largely meaningless observation that leaves the ongoing issue of white nationalists’ affinity for Trump glaringly unresolved.

D’Souza also interviews white supremacist figurehead Richard Spencer in an attempt to demonstrate that Spencer’s and Trump’s worldviews are wholly divergent, and his gambit backfires. D’Souza asks him: “Would you be happy with an immigration strategy that basically said, ‘We want people from New Zealand, Australia, white guys from Europe, Iceland, and South Africa; we don’t want that many people from -- if any -- Barbados or Bombay?’” After Spencer says yes, D’Souza responds: “Now this seems very different than Trump.”

It’s not really that different, though, given that Trump reportedly told lawmakers that he wanted more immigrants from Norway and fewer people from “shithole countries” -- Haiti and African nations, specifically. That comment was a big hit among white supremacists, including Spencer. D’Souza insists to Spencer that “the line that Trump is drawing is not a racial line but a line between the legal and the illegal immigrant.” The Trump White House, meanwhile, is reportedly planning harsh restrictions on legal immigrants seeking citizenship.

Ridiculous, self-defeating arguments like this permeate Death of a Nation primarily because D’Souza doesn’t give a shit and has precisely zero respect for his intended audience. D’Souza does not want to change minds or start a discussion about political history -- this movie exists to wring as much cash as can be wrung from people who already believe that Democrats are Nazis and, as D’Souza puts it, “the real racists.” He doesn’t care about the soundness of his arguments. He just wants money and to go on TV.

At this point, D’Souza barely bothers to conceal his avarice and mendacity because he doesn’t have to. He exists within a putrefying conservative political and media ecosystem that either celebrates his fraudulent money-grubbing or determinedly ignores it. He’s doing the rounds on Fox News and talk radio, and he has the support of the president and the president’s family. None of them care that D’Souza has been discredited more times than can be counted, or that he’s erasing Hitler’s murderous persecution of LGBTQ people, or that he accidentally demonstrated parallels between Trump and white supremacists. D’Souza is calling Democrats “fascists” and Donald Trump the next Abe Lincoln, and that’s good enough.
