          CA Court Gets Tougher On Anti-Jewish Campus Hate      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Los Angeles city prosecutor Spencer Hart, who is reviewing the belligerent shutdown of a Students Supporting Israel panel at the University of California-Los Angeles on May 17, 2018, has requested additional investigative materials from the UCLA Police, according to a prosecution source. The request on Case 18-1206 was transmitted to UCLA campus Detective Selby Arsena, who assembled the original investigative package submitted to Los Angeles Pacific Branch prosecutors in mid-July.

The request was seen as an indication that LA prosecutors are taking the case seriously and undertaking a thorough review. No timeline for a decision could be identified, prosecution sources say, because prosecutor Hart, who is second in command at the Pacific Branch, not only handles his own substantial caseload but as the assistant supervising attorney, he also oversees the caseloads of other prosecutors. However, since a one-year statute of limitations applies, investigative sources envision a decision on the prosecution by year’s end.

In the now well-known case, Students Supporting Israel gathered in a UCLA function room on May 17, 2018, for a panel discussion titled Indigenous Peoples Unite. Disrupters—suddenly and loudly—stormed into the room mid-session. One person tore down the students’ flag, demonstratively pulled away a desk placard, and cursed threateningly close to the face of a panelist. With bullhorns, whistles staged dancing, and slogan shouting, the event was shut down. The disruption and nose-to-nose intimidation of the students attending the SSI event was documented in a video, beginning at minute 41. 

After media revelations about UCLA’s initial inaction, two Jewish groups stepped up—the Louis D. Brandeis Center, headed by constitutional attorney Alyza Lewin, and the StandWithUs Saidoff Legal Department, headed by attorney Yael Lerman. The Washington-based Brandeis Center flew its attorney, Aviva Vogelstein, to LA. Together, Lerman and Vogelstein personally escorted numerous students as well as one member of the community into the UCLA police department, where they all filed formal complaints. These resulted in a formal referral of the incident to city prosecutors. 

The failure of UCLA to act swiftly and transparently has been viewed by the larger Jewish and pro-Israel community as symptomatic of academic administrations across the nation that has allowed anti-Jewish and anti-Israel agitation to flourish and escalate to violence. 

UCLA spokesman Tad Tamberg repeatedly declined to respond to questions, and his office has also instructed the UCLA police to not respond to questions by this reporter. 

More than a few have compared the intensifying intimidation on campus to something approaching Brownshirt tactics in 1932, just before Hitler came to power. Nazi storm troopers would violently break up Jewish and anti-fascist meetings. 

In an August 2, 2018 letter to prosecutor Hart, the Coalition for Jewish Values, representing some 1,000 conservative and orthodox rabbis, urged prosecution of the UCLA disrupters citing verisimilitude to the “Nazi Party in Germany and its Sturmabteilung (SA), the stormtroopers or brownshirts.” 

Facing university inaction across the nation, Jewish and pro-Israel groups have turned to the criminal code. Several organizations are preparing students and community members on other campuses to call 911 to initiate police investigations for referral to prosecutors. 

Headlines were recently made at Stanford University when third-year student and former student senator Hamzeh Daoud, hired as a dorm residential advisor, issued the following Facebook warning: “I'm gonna physically fight Zionists on campus next year if someone comes at me with their ‘Israel is democracy bullshit’ : ) and after I abolish your ass I’ll go ahead and work every day for the rest of my life to abolish your petty ass ethnosupremacist settler-colonial state.” In a Twitter post, Daoud reportedly wrote, "fuck your liberal Zionist ass. fuck your Jewish state … Israel is a state that needs to be dismantled. Any other opinion is complicity." 

The Brandeis Center has been at the vanguard of the criminal referrals at UCLA and was quick to spring into action. Writing to Stanford president August Marc Tessier-Lavigne, Brandeis president Alyza Lewin insisted the threat was “so severe as to potentially violate … Title 11.5 of the California Penal Code, §422, ‘Punishment for threats’ [which] states: Any person who willfully threatens to commit a crime which will result in death or great bodily injury to another person, with the specific intent that the statement, made verbally, in writing, or by means of an electronic communication device, is to be taken as a threat, even if there is no intent of actually carrying it out … shall be punished by imprisonment … not to exceed one year.”

Likewise, the ZOA demanded, “Daoud’s actions be reported to law enforcement for possible criminal prosecution.”

The Israel Group, headed by Jack Saltzberg, went further and directly petitioned Santa Clara District Attorney Jeffrey F. Rosen to commence prosecution under the same 422 penal code statute known as the “Threat Law,” and to add a second count under 422.55, California’s “Hate Crime” statute. “Mr. Daoud’s threat is exacerbated by his being employed by Stanford on the campus as a Residential Assistant,” Saltzberg wrote. In an interview, Saltzberg said his group was bypassing the police and going directly to prosecutors because Stanford students “are not willing to file a complaint. Most are afraid to even go on record using their name regarding their thoughts.” The Israel Group has located just one student who “may be willing to file a complaint,” but the individual is still “undecided.” 

On July 31, 2018, the Pennsylvania law firm of Marcus & Auerbach wrote to Stanford on behalf of a student “client [who] wishes to remain anonymous out of concern for his/her physical safety.” The firm demanded Stanford take action against Daoud.

Other organizations, such as StandWithUs, are already arranging for students at various campuses who have been intimidated to walk into police stations and file complaints. 

Seeking a national “911 on campus” strategy against intimidation, the Brandeis Center is now assembling a catalog of relevant criminal statutes in all fifty states, to be itemized in a handy guide to be distributed to students nationwide. 

As students prepare for the fall, many organizations have decided to draw a line in the sand at the May 17 UCLA incident.

          New L.A. STEM school inspired by JPII      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Los Angeles, Calif., Aug 8, 2018 / 03:12 pm (CNA).- John Paul II taught often that science and religion follow complementary paths toward the same goal- truth.

A new high school in Los Angeles- the St. John Paul II STEM Academy- aims to help students find truth - by teaching faith, and, at the same time, teaching the methods and principles of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

The Burbank school, which plans to begin with 60 freshman in August 2019, is an initiative of the Department of Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. The archdiocese says the school will offer daily prayer and regular Mass to students, while, at the same time, providing science and technology classes, along with internships and apprenticeships at local businesses.

STEM courses- those in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and math- will be single-gender, according to the archdiocese, while the rest of the school’s course offerings will be co-educational. The school will focus on preparing students for careers especially in media arts and trade technologies, according to the archdiocese.

The Archdiocese of Los Angeles says the creation of the new school is a sign of a growing Catholic population in the region, and increased interest in Catholic education.

“At the Department of Catholic Schools, we have a vision of growth that is based on the demographic reality of an increasing Catholic population in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles,” Dr. Kevin Baxter, senior director and superintendent of Catholic schools, said in Aug. 7 press release.

St. John Paul II STEM Academy, Baxter added, “it is a great indicator that our vision is one of building and opening and not closure and consolidation.”

The school will open on a campus formerly occupied by Bellarmine-Jefferson High School, a Catholic school that closed in May because of low enrollment and increased operating costs, according to an October 2017 statement from the school. At the time of that statement, the school’s enrollment was 98 students.

“STEM schools” have risen in popularity in recent decades, especially as funding has become available for STEM curricular models through grants from the National Science Foundation, the Gates Foundation, and other organizations. The National Catholic Education Association has promoted the model for Catholic schools, along with the so-called STREAM model, which incorporates religion and arts into the traditional STEM curriculum.

          My hair has been historically shunned: Lupita Nyong'o      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Los Angeles, Aug 9 (IANS) Actress Lupita Nyong'o wants to fight the stereotype that "natural, African, kinky hair" is "uncivilised" and she wants black women to be proud of their natural hair.

"My hair is something that, historically, has been shunned. I mean, how often do you hear 'You can't get a job with hair like that?' Natural, African, kinky hair - it's often been painted as uncivilised or wild," Nyong'o told Porter magazine.

"Being featured on the cover of a magazine fulfils me as it is an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly our children, that they are beautiful just the way they are," she added.

The "12 Years a Slave" star is writing a children's book to help young dark-skinned children to be proud of their looks, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

The book is titled "Sulwe" meaning "star" in the actress's native language Luo - and is focused on a five-year-old girl and her life growing up in Kenya.

Expert advice on easing social anxiety that has kept daughter largely housebound


My teen daughter has Asperger’s and extreme social anxiety. It started to get worse at 13, resulting in refusing school. It has progressed to hardly leaving the house at all and no education as such for 2 years. She is 15 now, and no one seems to be able to help. I am at a loss too. How do I get her through this? 

This week’s “Got Questions?” answer comes from Jeffrey Wood, PhD, a psychologist at the University of California, Los Angeles. Three Autism Speaks research grants support Dr. Wood’s work on adapting cognitive behavioral treatments for children and teens with autism.

Editor’s note: The following information is not meant to diagnose or treat and should not take the place of personal consultation, as appropriate, with a qualified healthcare professional and/or behavioral therapist.

Thanks for the question. Unfortunately, anxiety – including social anxiety – is very common among children and teens on the autism spectrum. Many of these kids have a particular problem going to school. In fact, the problem is so common that we have a term for it: school phobia, or school refusal. Sometimes, school phobia involves the broader fear of leaving the house, also known as agoraphobia.

Sometimes these phobias stem from a specific fear such as a fear of having a panic attack in public. In other cases, it reflects more general social anxieties and fears around embarrassment or humiliation in public.

We’ve found great success easing both school phobia and agoraphobia with cognitive behavioral treatment (CBT) approaches, which I’ve described in previous posts to this column.

Cognitive behavioral therapy is a widely accepted psychological approach for breaking severe cycles of anxiety. Through extensive research, our group and others have shown that modified forms of cognitive-behavioral therapy can work particularly well with children and teens who have autism.

The first step in this process involves helping the child or teen identify the root of his or her fears. In second step involves taking small, incremental steps to approaching the feared situation and becoming more comfortable, or “habituated,”with the situation.

In your daughter’s case that would mean working with a cognitive behavioral therapist on gradually re-entering school. For instance, the therapist might begin by having your daughter simply step out the front door for a few minutes – or even seconds. In this way, your daughter would begin the process of habituation, and build up from there.

Next, the therapist might work with you and your daughter on briefly visiting the parking lot of the school, then the entryway of the school, the office and so on. Each small step in the right direction warrants praise and reward. Shaming is never a part of the process.

The therapist is likely to take the same or similar approach with social interactions: developing a list of easy to hard social situations and coaching your daughter through each until her anxiety is reduced to a reasonable level before moving to the next level.

Patience is important. After a long time out of public situations, most people are very cautious and avoidant. They need to take it slowly. A good cognitive-behavioral therapist can guide progress through this delicate early phase of treatment.

A good resource for finding a cognitive behavioral therapist is the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapy. You can find local therapists through the associations “Therapist Finder” here.

You may be able to access these services free of charge through your local school system’s Individualized Education Plan (IEP) for your daughter. I would encourage you to work with the school system to evaluate your daughter’s needs and develop a comprehensive educational plan that supports her re-entry. What school placement, grade level and accommodations does she need? A qualified psychologist can perform the needed testing to guide you and the school on providing the appropriate educational environment to support a successful transition back to school.

Meanwhile, if you haven’t already, I encourage you to work with your school district to meet your daughter’s current educational needs, perhaps with in-home services.

In addition, your child’s physician and/or your health insurer may be able to provide a referral to an expert in child anxiety who practices cognitive behavioral therapy and is experienced working with children who have autism.

In other posts to this advice column, my colleagues and I have written extensively about anxiety and autism – particularly on the effectiveness of cognitive behavioral treatments. I think you’ll find them relevant to your issue:

* Managing anxiety in children with autism

* What behavioral therapies can help someone with autism and severe anxiety?

* Research yields tips for easing anxiety in nonverbal kids with autism

Thanks again for your question. Please let us know how you and your daughter are doing by writing us again at gotquestions@autismspeaks.org.

The 2028 Summer Olympics and Paralympics will stretch across a huge geographic area—Long Beach to Encino, Inglewood to North Hollywood, Malibu to San Dimas—bringing over a million spectators, athletes, and volunteers to thousands of communities in between. Developing a coherent visual identity for this multi-sport event will require expansive thinking by designers who can anticipate broad applications and interventions. It is also an opportunity for many voices and visions of LA to be reflected in the temporal streetscapes of the Olympics and be an outward-focused celebration of diverse creative visions. This panel will explore previous examples of visual identity design for the Olympics, how LA 2028 might be different, how designers and artists could be enlisted for citywide supergraphic interventions—like bus wraps, painted sidewalks, building facades, temporary structures—and how local community groups could create their own installations and streetscapes to make LA’s hundreds of neighborhoods feel like they’re part of the action, as well as, to show the world the amazing diversity of LA’s neighboring communities.

          "Brad Pitt non versa gli alimenti ai figli da oltre un anno e mezzo"      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Angelina Jolie sempre più agguerrita contro Brad Pitt nella battaglia legale per il divorzio e nella disputa per la custodia dei figli. L'attrice è ricorsa al tribunale sostenendo che, fin dalla separazione annunciata nel settembre 2016, l'ex marito non stia versando un "mantenimento congruo" per i figli.

Nbc News ha pubblicato la richiesta formale inviata dai legali della diva ai giudici: il volere della Jolie sarebbe quello di ottenere quantomeno un ordine formale sulla cifra che dovrebbe percepire, in modo da accelerare altresì le pratiche relative il divorzio.

"Pitt è tenuto a pagare il mantenimento. Ad oggi, non ha effettuato pagamenti congrui mirati al sostegno economico dei propri figli. Si ravvisa ciò visto che gli accordi informali riguardo il pagamento delle spese relative ai bambini non sono stati regolarmente mantenuti per oltre un anno e mezzo". Per questo motivo, l'attrice avrebbe chiesto alla corte di prendere un provvedimento che abbia valenza retroattiva, in modo che l'ex marito si trovi costretto a versare anche gli arretrati. Questo è quanto si apprende dalla richiesta inoltrata dall'avvocato di Angelina, Samantha Bley DeJean, alla Los Angeles Superior Court.

Dall'altro lato, c'è chi difende Brad Pitt, scagionandolo dalle accuse. Secondo quanto riportato da Tmz, l'attore avrebbe versato all'ex moglie milioni e milioni di dollari in questi ultimi anni. "Si tratta di cifre molto più consistenti di quelle che qualsiasi giudice avrebbe potuto stabilire", dicono fonti vicine a Pitt.

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

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

Actor Charlotte Rae, best known for her role as Mrs. Garrett, the patient housemother at a girls' school in the 1980s sitcom The Facts of Life , has died at age 92. Rae's publicist, Harlan Boll, said she died at her Los Angeles home on Sunday, according to various sources, including The Los Angeles Times. Boll did not give a cause of death, but Rae had been diagnosed with bone cancer last year and had suffered from pancreatic cancer for several years, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Rae's character, Edna Garrett, first appeared on NBC's Diff'rent Strokes , then went on to the spinoff, The Facts of Life. The popular show lasted for nine seasons, although Rae left after seven, explaining, "I needed some time for the rest of my life."

In a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles, Judd alleges sexual harassment and defamation, saying Weinstein "badmouthed her to filmmaker Peter Jackson and cost her a role in the Lord of the Rings trilogy," according to Hollywood Reporter. Judd, now 50, says in 1998 she was in contention for one of two major roles in the adaptation of the J.R.R. Tolkien books when Weinstein told Jackson that she was "a 'nightmare' to work with and should be avoided 'at all costs.' " "Mr. Weinstein's abusive conduct toward others has caused no end of damage to aspiring actors and others in the film and entertainment industry," Judd said in a statement, according to Variety.

          Blood-Red/Orange Sun in the California Fires      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
You can see the blood red/orange sun in the lower
right hand corner of this smokey image I took
while sitting in traffic on the I-215 as I approached
CA Highway 60 in Moreno Valley.
By Douglas V. Gibbs
Author, Speaker, Instructor, Radio Host

I was on my way to a meeting in Riverside, Monday evening, when I noticed the sun, blanketed by the smoke from a nearby fire, likely the one burning in Santa Ana Canyon, was an eerie blood-red/orange color as it worked its way westward.  We've heard about the blood moon events of late, but I didn't expect to see a blood red sun.

While Southern California has seen its share of fires during this fire season, I will have to admit I've seen worse, and what we've experienced down here near the Mexican Border has been nothing compared to the raging inferno that continues to destroy homes and countryside way up north near Redding and Shasta.

According to CalFire, the Carr Fire in northern California is now at an incredible torching of 173,522 acres and is still only 47% contained.  A number of other fires also dot the landscape in that portion of the Golden State.

I live in the middle of that cluster of five fires (three active,
two 100% contained) between Los Angeles and San Diego,
and own property on the western edge of the two fires you see there in
southwestern Oregon.  The stench of smoke in the air has been ominpresent
pretty much most of the summer.  I will be traveling to Brookings, Oregon
in about a week and our route to get there has been severely altered, compared
to how we normally drive to get there, thanks to the fires.
Last December, before school let out for Christmas Vacation (that's right, I called it by its proper name), we had a fire licking the hills near our house, and it got literally across the street from the school three of my grandchildren attend.  My son had to go pick up his kids early, due to the heavy dose of smoke in the air, and he took the following snapshot:


In 2015 we had a fire sweep across the Cajon Pass, literally igniting cars as it crossed the freeway.

During one fire season prior to that, while I was still driving big rigs, I remember driving up the I-15 towards the Cajon Pass around the Ontario and Rancho Cucamonga area and trucks were along the side of the freeway on fire, as the areas all around the corridors of travel were up in flame.

Last night, as I traveled south along the I-15 from beyond the 91 Freeway in Corona, through the Temescal Valley, I noticed a fire that has been burning in the Saddleback area of Orange County had made its way over the hills and was marching down the fuel rich Cleveland National Forest towards homes in Temescal Valley and the northern end of Lake Elsinore.  Here's the pictures I pulled over to the side of the road to take:







In that last shot you can see how close the flames are to those homes down below as the fire creeps onward, and in this case, downward.

While we have had fires get close to us, where we live, before, we have been blessed to not have ever been required to evacuate, nor have we ever lost our home due to a fire.  I could not imagine how that must feel, and while the fire marching over the hills from Orange County was fascinating to watch as I drove home last night, it was nothing compared to what is going on with the Carr Fire in the mountainous and forest rich Redding region of the State.  My prayers go out to each and every one of the folks up there having to deal with the tragic horror of being faced with a massive fire that is merciless, and relentless, when it comes to its hunger to eat up all that you own.

The following review is a special for BlackFive readers provided by Elise Cooper. You can read all of our book reviews and author interviews by clicking on the Books category link in the right side bar. One on One by Michael Brandman is the second installment in the new series. The former original writer of the Jesse Stone series after Robert Parker’s death, decided last year to write a series about a small-town police deputy. Besides a good mystery the author intertwines some social issues as well as an ongoing discussion about assisted suicide. Legendary Sheriff Burton Steel requested his son Buddy leave his job with LAPD Homicide and come home to become the deputy of Freedom, California, a privileged coastal community a hundred miles north of Los Angeles. Reluctantly, he honored the summons because of a sense of duty, and a willingness to make amends with his dying father. Burton Steel has Lou Gehrig’s disease, and has pressured his son to pull the plug when necessary in an assisted suicide. Brandman noted, “I knew someone who pulled the plug on himself. The guy was a physician and worked out a morphine overdose. His future was so dim he did not want to experience the pain. I wanted to explore in this series the issues of the father/son dynamic as well as what happens when someone faces mortality. Burton is not afraid to tell Buddy he will one day ask him to pull the plug. Although Buddy is horrified it is a topic I wanted to delve into, the taking of a life versus ending a loved one’s suffering.” Thankfully, for Buddy he becomes distracted while investigating a fatality. A popular assistant principal, Hank Carson, who is also the assistant swimming coach, is brutally murdered with a steak knife. Further scrutiny reveals that there was another side to Carson. There are people who resent him and are suspicious that he and some football players could be involved in abuse of those on the swim team. Readers will obviously be reminded of the Penn State football scandal along with Michigan State’s gymnastic scandal, both involving sexual abuse. “I wanted to write how a murder could have happened out of these stories of abuse. This violation of a sacred trust had people looking the other way. I like to explore some societal issues. In my first book, Missing Persons, I explored how some preachers are con men that emerged as self-righteous. In this novel, I wanted to show how abuse can impact a victim and what is their recourse. In my next book, Buddy takes on the developers and Coastal Commission after a murder takes place.” The sub-plot of the book has Buddy angry over a sudden outbreak of graffiti. He is forced to find new and challenging ways to thwart those responsible for defacing buildings with their so called “street art.” The author wants “to call attention to this blight and have Buddy find a way to end it. I am tired of driving around Los Angeles seeing this horrifying graffiti. I put in a quote in the book to show these ‘artists’ will do it anywhere and do not care if it is public or private property.” Buddy is a likeable character who uses self-deprecating humor, sometimes acting like an overgrown schoolboy. He is easygoing and can handle people poking fun at him. Being smart, caring, and understanding of people’s emotional pain, Buddy has a moral sense of right versus wrong. Readers will enjoy this fast-paced mystery. With well-developed characters and a plot that takes issues straight from the headlines, this is a good read.

          Book Review: THE BOOKSHOP OF YESTERDAYS      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The following review is a special for BlackFive readers provided by Elise Cooper. You can read all of our book reviews and author interviews by clicking on the Books category link in the right side bar. The Bookshop of Yesterdaysby Amy Meyerson is part mystery and part drama involving family dynamics. It is a shout out to those who love books and bookstores since the main mystery is centered around both, and comes about with riddles from book quotes. Clues to the scavengers’ hunt are found in the classics of the past, The Tempest, Jane Eyre, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Frankenstein, Fear of Flying, Persuasion, The Grapes of Wrath, andBridge to Terabithia. The story begins with Miranda Brooks’ twelfth birthday party. Her beloved Uncle Billy is a no-show and to make matters worse that night she overhears a fight between him and her mother. She sees Billy only once more and then he cuts himself off from her life. Similar to someone who has lost a loved one she experiences grief, loss. and anger. He left her with no explanation.Fast-forward sixteen years later where Miranda attempts to make a life for herself in Philadelphia teaching history in a middle school. She finds out Billy has died and the fond memories of their times together sweeps over her. He took her to his Los Angeles bookstore Prospero Books, where they would read, solve riddles, and have elaborate scavenger hunts full of surprises. After the funeral Miranda learns she inherited the financially challenged bookstore and Billy has left her one more scavenger hunt: a quest to provide answers about the mysterious family’s rift that no one wants to speak about. Myerson explains, “My bookstore visually looks a lot like one in Echo Park. I borrowed a lot physically from it, but not any of the actual character struggles. I also spoke with some managers of bookstores that helped me to understand how they work. Silverlake, the community in Echo Park, has changed a lot. I wanted to make Prospero Books an earlier relic of the neighborhood that is disappearing.” Furthermore, “I love books about books. I wanted to set a story in a bookstore. The reason for the bookstores’ name, “Prospero Books,” is because “The Tempest” has a scene where he gains magical powers through books. Also, Billy would take Miranda there as a way to connect with her. Since it was originally his late wife’s he thought Miranda might also connect to her. I think it was a way for Billy to share his late wife, Evelyn, with Miranda and keep the memory of her alive. I think he tried to explain his life to Miranda through the books in his bookstore and not directly as in a letter. Scavenger hunts were a way Billy communicated. It enabled him to explain his emotions and through the riddles he was able to talk to Miranda.” Early on many readers will realize the big family secret. Yet, they will turn the pages to take the journey of the scavenger hunt with Miranda to find out find out how the past family secrets would be revealed. A scene from the book would forewarn readers that the quest is more important than the mystery: “he left her clues meant to impart wisdom and knowledge as well as lead to the reward: Even though I always figured out where the quest was going before we got there, he refused to let me rush through the lesson.” The author explained, “I wrote how Suze, Miranda’s mother, realized holding back secrets makes it progressively more difficult to tell the truth. I wrote in this book quote, ‘It’s difficult seeing parents for who they are, rather than who we want them to be.’ I wanted to explore the way we can and cannot know our parents. I know I feel this way and I think others do as well. It is hard to fully understand who they were before they became parents. We only know what they chose to tell us and how they chose to tell us.” This heartfelt debut novel explores loss, healing, and family with all the tensions, misunderstandings, and estrangements that are sometimes part of it. Books and the bookstore are an added bonus allowing readers to understand the importance of forgiveness.

          Sinclair, Tribune in talks to overcome regulatory hurdles      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

NEW YORK — The Sinclair broadcasting company says it's in talks with Tribune Media on how to overcome regulatory hurdles to its $3.9 billion deal to buy Tribune's 42 TV stations.

The deadline for either party to walk away from the deal is midnight on Wednesday.

Sinclair CEO Chris Ripley said Wednesday morning that the companies are working to find approaches that are best for the company, employees and shareholders. He made the comments as Sinclair reported quarterly financial results.

In July, Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai raised concerns about the deal and ordered a hearing. Although Sinclair has proposed selling some stations to address potential antitrust concerns, Pai said Sinclair might still be able to operate the stations "in practice, even if not in name."

At the time, one potential buyer was the Cunningham Group, which has ties to Sinclair's founding family. Sinclair has said it will no longer sell two stations to Cunningham and will instead seek FCC permission to sell them to another unrelated party.

Sinclair and its proposed deal for Tribune received widespread attention after news reports in April showed dozens of Sinclair news anchors reading an identical script expressing concern about "one-sided news stories plaguing the country." At the time, President Donald Trump tweeted his support of the company. Sinclair defended the effort as a way to distinguish its news shows from unreliable stories on social media.

With 192, Sinclair is one of the nation's largest owners of TV stations. Tribune's 42 stations include KTLA in Los Angeles and WPIX in New York.

If the companies remain in talks, they will face a lengthy hearing process with the FCC. In the past, just the prospect of that has dissuaded companies from continuing with merger plans. The last deal an FCC hearing blocked was a 2002 merger of satellite TV companies DirecTV and Echostar.

          California Company Reaches $119.5 Million Settlement Over Massive Gas Leak      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Updated at 4:40 p.m. ET The Southern California Gas Co., or SoCalGas, has agreed to pay $119.5 million in a settlement with several government entities over the company's massive methane natural gas leak in 2015 and 2016. The settlement still needs to be approved by the courts. During the months-long leak, the Aliso Canyon natural gas storage well spewed methane into the air. Thousands of people evacuated from Los Angeles suburb of Porter Ranch, as California declared a state of emergency . One analysis found that the disaster was the largest gas leak in U.S. history . The $119.5 million settlement deal resolves multiple lawsuits brought by Los Angeles and California government entities — the city attorney's office, the county, the state attorney general and the California Air Resources Board. "Under the terms of the $119.5 million settlement agreement, SoCalGas will, among other things, reimburse city, county and state governments for costs associated with their response to the leak;

          SoCal Gas Reaches Aliso Canyon Settlement as Costs Top $1 Billion      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

It’s been nearly three years since the Aliso Canyon natural gas storage facility sprung a massive leak, sickening many, evacuating thousands, and forcing a shutdown of the Los Angeles region’s primary reserve for natural gas to keep homes warm in winter and supply regional power plants at times of peak grid demand.  

This week, facility owner Southern California Gas announced that the costs of containing, repairing and maintaining the underground storage site have ballooned to more than $1 billion, even as they long-term future of the site, reopened at limited capacity last summer against the protests of Los Angeles County and angry residents, remains very much in doubt. 

SoCalGas, a unit of Sempra energy, officially broke the $1.014 billion mark for Aliso Canyon costs in its quarterly earnings filing this week. The estimate is up 6.3 percent from $954 million in the previous quarter, and almost all of it ($987 million) has been largely recovered or is likely to be recovered through insurance, the company stated.

Of the total, about 55 percent was for temporary relocation of the people forced to evacuate their homes during the leak. However, SoCalGas also warned that the estimates could “rise significantly” due to still-pending lawsuits and potential fines.

On Wednesday, SoCalGas announced its $119.5 million settlement with state, county and local governments, pledging to repay their costs associated with the response effort, as well as establish a program with the California Air Resources Board to mitigate the methane emissions from the leak, and fund local environmental benefit projects to be run by government parties, not the company itself.

The settlement did not, however, include some of the residents of the Porter Ranch neighborhood, who are vowing to continue their legal battle to close down the Aliso Canyon site. Los Angeles County, which is a party to this week’s settlement, has also opposed the CPUC’s decision to allow SoCalGas to conduct a study into whether or not facility could be kept open for the long term. 

Last July, the California Public Utilities Commission determined that Aliso Canyon could start to operate again at limited capacity of about 24.6 billion cubic feet, or about 28 percent of its pre-leak maximum capacity. But under Senate Bill 380, a law passed in 2016, the CPUC and the utility must operate the facility only as an “asset of last resort” after other options for dealing with energy shortfalls have been exhausted. 

SB 380 also requires the CPUC to study the long-term effectiveness of closing down Aliso Canyon entirely versus keeping it open. Last July, soon after the CPUC allowed Aliso Canyon to reopen, California Gov. Jerry Brown and the California Energy Commission (CEC) put forward a plan to study how Aliso Canyon could be shut down completely within the next 10 years. 

According to SoCalGas, Aliso Canyon serves more than 11 million customers and provides fuel to 17 natural gas-fired power plants with about 10,000 megawatts of generating capacity. It’s also much closer to some of Southern California’s most heavily populated regions — a critical factor for a pipeline system that can only move gas at about 20 to 30 miles per hour. While it takes only one to two hours for Aliso Canyon-stored gas to reach key Los Angeles area power plants, for example, it would take about 10 hours to supply those plants from terminals at the Arizona border, according to SoCalGas. 

Aliso Canyon’s closure in January 2016 led to fears that Southern California could be faced with energy shortages during both cold winter months, when natural gas for heating is in high demand, and during hot summer months, when air conditioning drives natural gas-fired electricity demand to peak levels. A joint state agency study in April 2016 warned of the risk of multi-day blackouts without a wide range of energy efficiency, solar power, demand response, energy storage, and other distributed energy resources to take its place. 

The threat drove the CPUC to fast-track utility deployments of DERs in record time, starting with the 2016 procurement of nearly 100 megawatts of energy storage from Tesla, Greensmith Energy and AES Energy Storage, including what is currently the country’s biggest battery — the 30-megawatt/120-megawatt-hour Escondido system that AES built for San Diego Gas & Electric. 

A law passed in 2017, SB 801, requires LADWP and SCE to procure additional energy storage — 100 megawatts and 20 megawatts, respectively — to meet reliability needs for Aliso Canyon.

Southern California Edison, which contracted for most of the energy storage above, also turned to Nest to enable 50 megawatts of smart thermostat-enabled peak load reduction, tapping about 50,000 of its existing customers in the region with utility incentives to reduce air conditioning loads in summer months. 

SoCalGas has also turned to Nest and Ecobee for an unusual wintertime demand response program, aimed at lowering natural gas consumption for heating, which saw its first test in December 2017. While uptake has been “minimal” thus far, the utility and its partners are seeking to increase participation for the coming winter, according to a March letter from the CPUC that outlined how utilities have been tapping those alternatives before tapping Aliso Canyon’s limited reserves over the winter. 

The CPUC’s letter noted that utilities SCE and Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) have also been working to re-dispatch power generation needs to plants outside the LA basin in an attempt to reduce demand on the regional natural gas supply system. The CPUC even issued a temporary moratorium on new commercial and industrial customer interconnections in parts of Los Angeles County reliant on Aliso Canyon service in December, although it lifted it in March. 

But with state grid operator CAISO facing the need for emergency demand reduction to meet late-summer electricity peaks, and the possibility of a colder-than-expected winter putting more stress on next year’s natural gas demands, it’s likely that Aliso Canyon may be called upon again in the near future — even as agencies look at ways it could be replaced in the long run.

The third and current season of Queen Sugar hasn’t ended yet, but already the show has been renewed for a fourth season by the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), according to reports from Variety.

Queen Sugar premiered on September 6, 2016, and beautifully tells a story of love, loss, struggle, racial injustices, and the importance of family. The series follows three siblings: sisters Nova and Charley Bordelon, and their younger brother Ralph Angel Bordelon. Nova is a Black Lives Matter activist and journalist from New Orleans, while sister Charley has had a more sheltered life. Charley lives in Los Angeles with her basketball star husband and son Micah. Little brother Ralph Angel is a single father, who was recently released from prison and now has to figure out how to provide for his son Blue.

The siblings could not be more different, but after the loss of their father, they’re forced to work together in Louisiana to fulfill his dying wish.

Not quite. Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle Sr., is reportedly friends with a female neighbor who allegedly has smoked crystal meth on occasion. What has that to do with Meghan Markle? The ‘Enquirer’ has decided that Thomas Markle’s concern for his friend is so great, she is like “Meghan’s secret ‘sister.’” Though Meghan has never met her “sister” and most likely never heard of her, the ‘Enquirer’ cover touts this story under the explosive headline: “Bombshell about ‘sister’ she’s hiding from Harry.” Even further removed from reality is a second ‘Enquirer' story about Megan’s father: “Exiled Dad Living With Drag Queen!” This story claims that a male neighbor of Markle’s is a cross-dresser who wants to transition to become a woman. After almost two years of near-constant paparazzi pursuit of Thomas Markle, this “drag queen” - as if that’s somehow the same as cross-dressing or wanting to transition - has been photographed with him precisely once. But that’s enough for the ‘Enquirer’ to report that the couple “spend so much time together under the same roof, they are as good as living together.” No, they’re not. “Elizabeth Smart Saves Hollywood Star From Evil Cult!” screams another fact-challenged ‘Enquirer’ cover headline. Elizabeth Smart, you may recall, was kidnapped at 14 and held captive for nine months by a deranged Utah couple. Evidently she wrote an email to former ‘Dynasty’ actress Catherine Oxenberg’s daughter India, who until recently was in the grips of the controversial Nxivm cult. The ‘Enquirer’ reports that Smart asked India “if she needed support.” India never responded. That certainly sounds to me like saving a Hollywood star from an evil cult, if by "Hollywood star” they mean an actress’s unknown daughter, and if by “saving” they mean sending an email that’s ignored. “Dying Cher Miracle Cure!” screams the cover of this week’s ‘Globe’ magazine, which after years of reporting that the actress-singer is on the verge of death, has finally decided that her obstinate survival counts as a miracle. Admittedly, it must be hard to keep writing about “Cher’s sad last days” (‘Enquirer,’ June 2017) or about Cher being given “three months to live” (‘Enquirer,’ December 2014) when the world can see her cavorting energetically onscreen in the new “Mama Mia’ movie musical sequel. “Brad & Jen Together Again!” is the ‘Globe’ headline reuniting Pitt and Aniston 12 years after their divorce - and now they are “talking about getting hitched to each other again.” No. Not happening.This is a tabloid fever-dream, one from which they refuse to awake. Fox TV anchor Tucker Carlson’s addictions are also exposed by the ‘Globe,’ which reports: “TV Tucker Has Monkey On His Back!” Given tabloid logic and guilt-by-association, the headline could just as easily have read: “Rupert Murdoch’s Secret Drug Hell Exposed!” Perhaps we should be thankful for small mercies. And what is Carlson’s vice? Heroin? Cocaine? Uppers? Downers? The “truth” is far, far darker. “Fox anchor addicted to nicotine gum,” reveals the ‘Globe.’ Oh, the shame. ‘Us’ magazine devotes its cover to Britney Spears a decade after her mental breakdown, revealing: “How Real Love Saved Britney.” Thanks for her ten-year recovery is somehow laid at the feet of her boyfriend of just two years, Sam Asghari, the Iranian model 12 years her junior. “He accepts her for who she is, which has been a struggle for Britney in the past,” reports ‘Us.’ It seems the magazine wants to credit Britney’s comeback to a man who hasn’t tried to change her in any way. Her success is all “thanks to love,” raves the mag, overdosing on romantic fantasies. But why credit Britney with her own success, when ‘Us’ can attribute her career revival and happiness to the love a a good man? Nothing sexist in that, is there? Meanwhile ‘People’ magazine gives up its cover to “The Royal Woman of Windsor - Their Lives, Loves & Secrets.” As if the world’s most scrutinized women could possibly have any secrets left. What insights does ‘People’ offer? Meghan Markle’s “secrets” are suitably shocking: Her childhood nickname was “Flower," she was “born poised,” and “she’s smart, she’s glamorous.” Wow. That’s a revelation. Will the Royal Family ever recover? Fortunately we have the crack investigative squad at ‘Us’ mag to tell us that Karrueche Tran wore it best, that Cynthia Nixon is “a natural blonde,” that Amanda Bynes keeps Mentos, Kind bars and a hairbrush in her Maison Goyard tote, and that the stars are just like us: they shop, carry luggage, eat snacks and take mass transit (at least in New York they do - good luck finding any celebrity on a Los Angeles bus or train.) Most squirm-inducing headline of the week goes to the ‘National Examiner’ story about a nine-year-old quadruple amputee given new custom-fitted running blades: “Legless Boy’s Off and Running!” Onwards and downwards . . .

Get ready for some Japan posts over the next few days, because I spent five wonderful weeks in Tokyo, Koya-san, and Kyoto. Carla, Jane, and I enjoyed it so much that we were not at all homesick. A few days before the end of our stay we tried to think of what we were looking forward to about Los Angeles. The only thing I could think of was the hangnail nippers I'd forgot to put in my travel kit. I had to use regular nail clippers to trim my hangnails, and they didn't do nearly as good of a job of getting to the nub as these little Tweezerman hangnail nippers ($12 on Amazon). I'll never forget them again.

          California Company Reaches $119.5 Million Settlement Over Massive Gas Leak      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Updated at 4:40 p.m. ET The Southern California Gas Co., or SoCalGas, has agreed to pay $119.5 million in a settlement with several government entities over the company's massive methane natural gas leak in 2015 and 2016. The settlement still needs to be approved by the courts. During the months-long leak, the Aliso Canyon natural gas storage well spewed methane into the air. Thousands of people evacuated from Los Angeles suburb of Porter Ranch, as California declared a state of emergency . One analysis found that the disaster was the largest gas leak in U.S. history . The $119.5 million settlement deal resolves multiple lawsuits brought by Los Angeles and California government entities — the city attorney's office, the county, the state attorney general and the California Air Resources Board. "Under the terms of the $119.5 million settlement agreement, SoCalGas will, among other things, reimburse city, county and state governments for costs associated with their response to the leak;

          New Mexico child abuse suspects accused of training children for shootings      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   


August 8, 2018 / 6:17 AM / Updated 2 hours ago

TAOS, N.M. (Reuters) - Two men charged in the abuse of 11 youths found malnourished at a ramshackle compound in New Mexico were training the children with firearms to commit school shootings, prosecutors said in court documents filed in the case on Wednesday. 




Conditions at a compound in rural New Mexico where 11 children were taken into protective custody for their own health and safety after a raid by authorities, are shown in this photo near Amalia, New Mexico, U.S., provided August 6, 2018. Taos County Sheriff's Office/Handout via REUTERS 


One of the suspects, identified as Huraj Wahhaj, is the father of a young boy whose disappearance from his home near Atlanta months ago prompted the investigation that led authorities to raid the compound, located north of Taos, New Mexico, last week.

Remains believed to be that of the boy, who was 3 years old when his mother reported him missing, were found at the property on Monday but have not yet been positively identified, authorities said.

Wahhaj, a second man accused of harboring him as a fugitive, Lucas Morton, and three women presumed to be the mothers of the 11 children, who were taken into protective custody from the compound, were each charged with 11 counts of felony child abuse.

The five defendants made their initial court appearance before a local magistrate on Wednesday. They were due to be arraigned later in the day.

Taos County Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe told reporters on Tuesday that investigators found a shooting range built at one end of the squalid compound, located on the outskirts of the community of Amalia in northern New Mexico, near the Colorado border.

Wahhaj, 39, whose first name is alternately presented in some court documents as Siraj and is the person described as being “in control” of the compound, was heavily armed when taken into custody, the sheriff said.

A foster parent of one of the 11 children told authorities that Wahhaj “had trained the child in the use of an assault rifle in preparation for future school shootings,” prosecutors alleged in an expedited motion for pretrial detention.

The document further stated that Wahhaj was “under investigation for the death” of a 12th child at the compound, as well as for “training of children with weapons in furtherance of a conspiracy to commit school shootings.”

The court filing also states he “transported children across state lines for the purpose of children receiving advanced weapons training to commit future acts of violence.”

Similar allegations were leveled in a motion prosecutors filed seeking expedited pretrial detention of Morton.

The court documents said that most of the defendants appeared to be from Georgia, New York or elsewhere from the U.S. East Coast.

No mention was made of ideology or motive in initial court filings. The sheriff in comments over the weekend referred to the suspects as “extremists of Muslim belief,” but he declined to elaborate on that characterization when asked about it by reporters at a news conference on Tuesday.

According to CNN, Wahhaj is himself the son of a prominent Muslim cleric in New York.


The FBI is also taking part in the investigation, the sheriff said. So far, no federal charges are known to have been brought in the case.

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

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

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

Condolences to the family of NHL Hall of Famer Stan Mikita, who passed away earlier this week as a result of Lewy's Body dementia, the same disease that claimed radio & cartoon legend Casey Kasem a few years back.

The Los Angeles Rams are prepared to start the season without star defensive lineman Aaron Donald, who is holding out for either a contract extension or a new deal altogether.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Augmented Reality headset Magic Leap now available for $2,295

Perhaps the most hyped Virtual, and by Virtual I mean Augmented, Reality headset, Magic Leap, ever has been released to the public. However, the Microsoft HoloLens -like AR headset is by no means everybody's entertainment device, for few reasons.

Magic Leap can be now ordered in six cities in the United States: Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, San Francisco and Seattle. But even if you live in one of these places, the price might put you off. See, the price for what seems to still be a fairly exclusive product, is $2,295, not including VAT.

If you still want to shell out the cash, you might want to know what you are spending your money on. The hotly anticipated AR device comes in a three pieces with the headset itself being one of them obviously. You also get one touchpad controller as well as the computing part of the operation called the Lightpack.

Included in the Lightpack is Nvidia's Parker mobile CPU, a GPU based on Pascal architecture, eight gigabytes of RAM and 128 GB flash storage. According to the company the battery can run the device for up to 3 hours at a time, which should be more than enough to tire your eyes.

Connectivity-wise Magic Leap supports Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.2 and USB-C.

According to some early reviews, including at The Verge, the experience wasn't as polished as expected, although certainly impressive. The technology didn't provide a meaningless upgrade to what could be considered previous gen devices like the HoloLens.

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

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

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


By the numbers:

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

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

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

          Dr. Rex John LeBlanc      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

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

          LeBron's school isn't a charter, but it puts kids first—and that's all that matters      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

You’ve probably heard by now that basketball superstar LeBron James opened a school for at-risk kids in his hometown of Akron, Ohio. Called I Promise School (IPS), it’s a joint effort between the I Promise Network, the LeBron James Family Foundation, and Akron Public Schools. The newly renovated building opened its doors on July 30 to 240 students in third and fourth grade, along with forty-three staff members. Though he’s taking his talents to Los Angeles, King James himself was on hand to dedicate the new school.

Just like students who are part of the I Promise Network that serves more than 1,300 children and their families across the district, IPS students were identified based on their reading achievement data. After identifying students who were a year or two behind grade level, administrators used a lottery to randomly select which children would be offered a spot at the new school. These students will receive free uniforms, transportation within two miles, tuition to the University of Akron when they graduate, a bicycle and helmet, and a variety of other resources. Their families will have access to GED classes, job placement assistance, and a food pantry.

James is being lavished with praise from the likes of Barack and Michelle Obama and Steph Curry, and he certainly deserves it. He could have done something else, or nothing at all, to help the kids of Akron. He could have chosen to just shut up and dribble. Instead, he did something remarkable that has the potential to radically transform lives.

As with all major media stories these days, folks are crawling out of the woodwork to offer their opinions. It should come as no surprise to those who work in education policy that there’s been a lot of emphasis on the fact that IPS is a district public school. Not a private school that accepts vouchers, or a charter school (which, for the record, are also public schools), but a “traditional” public school that’s part of Akron Public Schools, the sixth largest district in the state.

It doesn’t really matter what kind of school IPS is as long as it serves kids well. But anyone who’s done their homework can see that IPS is anything but a “traditional” public school. In fact, the school’s defining characteristics are similar to the schools of choice lauded by ed reformers. Extended school day and year? Yes, just like a lot of the country’s best charter networks. A serious emphasis on teacher professional development, with one day a week reserved for development? Yes, just like some other high-performing charter networks. A curriculum anchored in science, technology, engineering, and math? Yes, just like Ohio’s independent, non-district affiliated STEM schools. (IPS is already part of Ohio’s STEM Learning Network.) Alternative schedules and working conditions for teachers? Also yes, just like plenty of charter and private schools.

And then there’s the philanthropic aspect. At ISP, the LeBron James Family Foundation funds “critical elements” of the school, including technology, additional staffing, and professional development. That’s not necessarily unique, since traditional districts receive philanthropic support all the time, but it is worth mentioning because charter schools are the ones that are typically maligned for seeking charitable funding to provide extra help for disadvantaged children.

Despite these similarities, IPS is a traditional public school, and there’s a whole horde of people who are thrilled about this technical distinction. In a recent piece for Education Week, for instance, Jonathan E. Collins says that it’s a good thing IPS isn’t a charter school because “charter schools by design don’t require the same accountability to the public that traditional public schools do.” I’m no expert on the charter laws in other states, but I do know Ohio charter law—and Collins is wrong. Charters in the Buckeye State are evaluated based on the same state report card that traditional public schools are subject to. Charter sponsors—the organizations that are tasked with overseeing charter schools—are evaluated using a rigorous evaluation system that has stiff consequences for poor oversight. As a result of this sponsor accountability system, dozens of low-performing charters have been shuttered in Ohio within the past few years. In addition, should sponsors fail to correct chronic low performance, state law subjects charters to automatic closure. Moreover, as schools of choice, charters face competitive pressures. If families don’t like the way a charter school is run, they don’t have to stay there—and the school loses funding if they leave.

Collins also argues that charters’ “student-selection process has stirred controversy for being biased.” Because of the “mechanisms that some charter schools have used in order to peel off the most promising at risk-students,” traditional districts are left with “unimaginable challenges.” Although studies have shown that the success of charters isn’t attributable to “cream-skimming,” there are still folks like Collins who argue that the only way a group of “those kids” can possibly succeed is if charter schools recruit the “good ones” and leave all the “bad ones” behind. It’s a notion that’s not just offensive to the charter teachers and kids who worked their butts off to learn and achieve, but also to the kids and teachers who are “stuck” in traditional districts.

Collins isn’t the only one who seems to be concerned for the “other kids” who are stuck and left behind. Washington Post writer Valerie Strauss shared the same concern in her piece titled “Props to LeBron James and his new Akron public school—but what about the other kids?” She takes tons of jabs at school choice, including the accusation that charter supporters “no doubt would have preferred that James opened a charter.” As a charter supporter and an Akron native, I find that accusation so ridiculous that it’s not even offensive. All the charter folks I know are thrilled that there’s another high quality option available for Akron kids. Frankly, anyone who doesn’t feel that way should re-evaluate their priorities.

But what stands out most about Strauss’s piece is her supposition that if schools just had more money, then James wouldn’t have had to open IPS at all. “The fact that this school opened only because of the good graces of a very wealthy, civic-minded athlete underscores the continuing problem with education funding in this country,” she writes. “America’s public schools should not have to depend on any wealthy individual or private entity to be sustained or improved.”

She’s not necessarily wrong. It would be great to have a never-ending supply of cash. If there’s anything we can learn from this spring’s teacher strikes, it’s that there are places in this nation where schools and teachers are severely—almost criminally—underfunded. But many states and localities have limited taxpayer resources that can be used to support public education. So here, too, is a place where we can learn a lesson from charter schools. Across the nation and in Ohio, charters accomplish phenomenal outcomes with less government funding than traditional public districts enjoy. These high-performing charter organizations put taxpayer funds to good use—something that bureaucratic, big-city districts don’t always do. It’s less about how much money there is and more about how it’s spent.

Thanks to LeBron James and his partners, the I Promise School has plenty of funding. Its founding principles and leadership seem to be focused on the right thing—using resources to do what’s best for students. At the end of the day, none of us should really care whether IPS is a district, charter, or private school. What matters is what it can do for kids. And so far, the future looks bright.


          5 awesome Los Angeles staycations that will save you time and money      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

staycation

  • Staycation getaways are perfect for vacationers looking to save money and time while still having a "getaway" experience.
  • Despite Los Angeles' perfect summer weather and beautiful beaches, you may be interested in a quick weekend break from the city.
  • LA has staycation options for every kind of traveler, whether you're seeking an adventurous hike or a trip to a luxurious resort and spa.
  • Here are five LA staycation getaways you need to try this summer.

 

One of my favorite things to do in Los Angeles is spend a weekend in a neighborhood I don't live in. Though I've been in LA for more than four years and currently live in Los Feliz, I still feel like there's so much of the city I haven't had the chance to see.

Even though it's forever sunny in LA, the working grind, smoggy air, and bumper-to-bumper traffic can get to me. Sometimes you need a change of scenery and a break from work — especially during the summer, when half your office is on vacation.

Even if you’re working your dream job and enjoying summer Fridays, things at work can start to feel a little drab.   

Enter: the LA staycation. It's a way to fall back in love with the city and go into full vacation mode without using any vacation days (or booking a plane ticket).

Interest in staycations seem to be on the rise. Between 2012 and 2017, Google searches for the word “staycation” increased steadily year over year, according to Google Trends. Searches peak in the summertime, when people want to be sipping cocktails by a pool, but can’t necessarily afford to do so in the Cayman Islands. In 2015, Millennials reported taking three staycations in the past year, according to the USA Today.

LA is such a versatile city that there are staycation options for every kind of traveler — whether you’re frugal, looking for a luxury excursion, a laze-by-the-pool type, or would much rather be hiking in the wilderness.

Here are five LA staycations to consider this summer:

1. Beach camping in Malibu

That's right, you can legitimately camp at some of the beaches in Malibu. There's nothing like taking in a sunset in Malibu, staying the night, and then watching the sun rise the next morning.

You get all the benefits of a luxury view for a fraction of the price.

To keep your costs down, grocery shop on your way up and pack a cooler with most of the food you'll need. You don't even need to sleep in a tent — just put your sleeping bag on the beach and fall asleep to the sounds of the ocean.

If you’re looking for a hike during the day, I recently hiked Point Dume Nature Preserve, which was lowkey but yielded some stunning coastline views. For something more intense, try the hike to Escondido Falls.



2. Have a downtown weekend filled with art, breweries, and good eats

I'm a huge fan of downtown LA, because when you live in a city that's really just 20 suburbs strung together, it somehow feels exciting to be surrounded by tall buildings and the bustle of downtown.

Stay at the Hotel Indigo, where you might learn quite a bit about the city you thought you knew so well. The hotel partnered with Cartwheel Art to offer an "Underground LA" tour that explores downtown the city’s Prohibition-era underground tunnels and speakeasies.

While you’re downtown, have lunch at Grand Central Market, a beer (or two) at Mikkeller, and an inventive Mexican meal at Broken Spanish.



3. Unleash your inner surf bum in Venice

There is no better aesthetic, in my opinion, than a Venice Beach bungalow. Rent one along the Venice canals and treat yourself to a glorious beach day — and maybe even a surf lesson.

Or rent fat-tire bikes for a ride along the strand. Enjoy a meal at sprawling bakery/deli Gjusta, where the bustling and picturesque outdoor patio truly feels like taking a holiday in and of itself.

The Beverly Hills mansion Elizabeth Taylor once shared with her second husband, Michael Wilding, is on the market for $15.9M.

The famous couple lived in the home with their two children from 1954 until their divorce in 1957. 



The traditional-style home sits on two acres of secluded land and boasts views of downtown Los Angeles and the Pacific ocean.

Allegedly, MGM studios loaned the Hollywood couple money to buy the house. 



Taylor and her husband are rumored to have bought the one-story home after scaling the fence to take a peek inside.

The current homeowners purchased the house for $2 million in 1997 and didn't have to scale the fence.

          Historian of Race Raymond Wolters’ “Road to Damascus”      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Excerpted by Nicholas Stix

Raymond Wolters is the last living, honest historian of race in America. Therefore, I am seeking to read everything he’s ever written or spoken on the topic, and to re-post and discourse on as much as possible of his work.
 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

              New L.A. STEM school inspired by JPII      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Los Angeles, Calif., Aug 8, 2018 / 03:12 pm (CNA).- John Paul II taught often that science and religion follow complementary paths toward the same goal- truth.

    A new high school in Los Angeles- the St. John Paul II STEM Academy- aims to help students find truth - by teaching faith, and, at the same time, teaching the methods and principles of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.

    The Burbank school, which plans to begin with 60 freshman in August 2019, is an initiative of the Department of Catholic Schools in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. The archdiocese says the school will offer daily prayer and regular Mass to students, while, at the same time, providing science and technology classes, along with internships and apprenticeships at local businesses.

    STEM courses- those in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and math- will be single-gender, according to the archdiocese, while the rest of the school’s course offerings will be co-educational. The school will focus on preparing students for careers especially in media arts and trade technologies, according to the archdiocese.

    The Archdiocese of Los Angeles says the creation of the new school is a sign of a growing Catholic population in the region, and increased interest in Catholic education.

    “At the Department of Catholic Schools, we have a vision of growth that is based on the demographic reality of an increasing Catholic population in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles,” Dr. Kevin Baxter, senior director and superintendent of Catholic schools, said in Aug. 7 press release.

    St. John Paul II STEM Academy, Baxter added, “it is a great indicator that our vision is one of building and opening and not closure and consolidation.”

    The school will open on a campus formerly occupied by Bellarmine-Jefferson High School, a Catholic school that closed in May because of low enrollment and increased operating costs, according to an October 2017 statement from the school. At the time of that statement, the school’s enrollment was 98 students.

    “STEM schools” have risen in popularity in recent decades, especially as funding has become available for STEM curricular models through grants from the National Science Foundation, the Gates Foundation, and other organizations. The National Catholic Education Association has promoted the model for Catholic schools, along with the so-called STREAM model, which incorporates religion and arts into the traditional STEM curriculum.

              LA Philharmonic Fluxus Festival Celebrates The Experimental Interdisciplinary Movement Of The 1960s And 1970s      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    The LA Phil pays tribute to the experimental and deeply influential Fluxus movement of the 1960s and 1970s with a season-long program of performances and events at Walt Disney Concert Hall and venues throughout Los Angeles, beginning October 14, 2018. An international, anti-establishment movement whose practitioners included artists, composers, designers, and architects, as well as economists, mathematicians, ballet dancers, and others, Fluxus aimed to collapse what it considered the false wall between art and life by emphasizing artistic process over finished product. In a survey curated by American conductor and composer Christopher Rountree, in collaboration with the Getty Research Institute, the often-humorous, frequently challenging music and performances of Fluxus will be featured in a combination of concerts, symposia, and other live events, as well as surprise installations and performances throughout the 2018/19 Centennial season.

    "As the LA Phil crosses that Centennial marker, we've wanted our work in this season to be a celebration of the inspiring creative community of this city, more than a casual acknowledgement of our longevity," says LA Phil Chief Operating Officer Chad Smith. "Our Fluxus focus started with John Cage, the radical genius who walked these streets as a young man. But it soon became an exploration of those diverse works which reinvented performance practice - works which continue to influence artists today. With the Getty's extraordinary Fluxus collection as foundation and Chris Rountree's imagination to lead us through this provocative movement, we hope the Fluxus Festival will provide a powerful counterpoint to all of our activities in this season."

    "It is my incredible thrill to have put together this extensive series of Fluxus pieces and to work with artists who so exemplify the spirit of the movement today," says Christopher Rountree. "Fluxus work strikes me so deeply because it asks more questions than it answers, binding the audience and performers together in exploration. It commits to the mindfulness of Zen and the focus of activist work, both. It believes that a work's value is in its ability to be obtainable by all and its ability to change our perspective in often humorous, simple moments."

    "One of the joys of living in Los Angeles is hearing the LA Phil perform in Walt Disney Concert Hall," saysNancy Perloff, Curator, Modern & Contemporary Collections at the Getty Research Institute. "The Getty Research Institute is thrilled to share our remarkable collection of works by Fluxus artists with music and art lovers through public lectures, performances, and a viewing of Fluxus scores. This partnership will give new audiences access to our collections and bring to life their musical forms."

    October 14, 2018: Fluxus Learning Event at Getty Research Institute

    Leading Fluxus scholar Natilee Harren will use the Getty's extensive archives of Fluxus-related ephemera (including original scores) to present the movement in its historical context. Christopher Rountree and members of the LA Phil will perform, and Rebekah Heller of the International Contemporary Ensemble will lead a participatory workshop designed around the music of Pauline Oliveros.

    November 6, 10 & 11, 2018: Cage's Europeras at Sony Pictures Studios

    "For two hundred years the Europeans have been sending us their operas. Now I'm sending them back." That's how John Cage described Europeras 1 & 2. The L.A.-born master's 1987 opera - his first - uses fragments of arias and duets from 64 European operas as its source material. Performers sing fragments of between one and sixteen measures, sometimes solo and sometimes simultaneously. They compete for attention with a pre-taped mix of 101 layered fragments from other operas. And the performance will be dictated by chance via a computer program meant to stimulate the I Ching's coin oracle. The end effect is a moving portrait not only of operatic history, but also of the passage of time itself. LA Phil Artist-Collaborator Yuval Sharon's production, in collaboration with The Industry, gives it a further Hollywood twist, with the wily ensemble will taking over a soundstage at Sony Pictures Studios in Culver City. Tickets for these performances go on sale September 12, 2018 at laphil.com.

    November 17, 2018: Fluxconcert at Walt Disney Concert Hall

    Conducted by festival curator Christopher Rountree and directed by R. B. Schlather, this evening-long exploration of the Fluxus movement, staged throughout Walt Disney Concert Hall by the LA Phil, is one of the most ambitious undertakings of the orchestra's 100-year career, and one of the largest Fluxus events ever to be put on by a major symphony orchestra. Designed to dissolve the perceived boundaries between audience, musician, and work, the entire campus will be activated, with sound, light, and action emanating from throughout the building. It will be an evening of chance encounters, unexpected delights, and historic performances.

    Performances include:

    A rare performance of La Monte Young's The Second Dream of the High-Tension Line Stepdown Transformer from The Four Dreams of China, in the Concert Hall, directed by the composer, with lighting by Marian Zazeela


    Guest artists and audience members performing a selection of Fluxus scores by Alison Knowles, Yoko Ono, Ken Friedman, Benjamin Patterson, Christian Wolff, Christopher Rountree, R. B. Schlather, and Pauline Oliveros


    An evening performance by the LA Phil and Roomful of Teeth in the Concert Hall featuring works by Yoko Ono, John Cage, Benjamin Patterson, Nam June Paik, La Monte Young, Dick Higgins, Luciano Berio, and a world premiere by Steven Kazuo-Takasugi


    February 15, 2019: Alison Knowles Make a Salad and music for percussion by Ryoji Ikeda at Walt Disney Concert Hall

    Alison Knowles first performed Proposition #2: Make a Salad in 1962 at a Fluxus concert at the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London. Declared "New Music" by Cage and termed "Intermedia" by Dick Higgins, Knowles' event score proposes the following: "Make a salad." When Knowles performs it, she does precisely that, prepping and tossing a massive salad on a contemporary concert and serving it to everyone attending. Alison Knowles has since performed Proposition #2 at the Tate Modern, London; New York's elevated High Line park; The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA); and at the 798 Arts District in Beijing, among other venues that have hosted the piece due to its radical appeal. Proposition #2: Make a Salad will be performed again by Alison Knowles at Walt Disney Concert Hall on February 15, 2019, on a program that also features the world premiere of music for percussion by Ryoji Ikeda, featuring the Los Angeles Percussion Quartet and Alexandre Babel, and commissioned by the LA Phil. Tickets for this performance go on sale September 12, 2018 at laphil.com.

    March 22, 2019: BREATHWATCHLISTENTOUCH: work and music of Yoko Ono at Walt Disney Concert Hall

    Yoko Ono is one of the most influential artistic figures of the 20th century. Her works as both a performance artist and a musician have not only helped to shape both media in the ensuing years, but have also had wider reverberations in society at large. Her work is conceptually bold and politically confrontational, but it's delivered to her audience with a lyrical touch - one informed by her dedication to peace and spirituality - giving it a great sense of warmth and humanity.

    Produced in partnership with Girlschool, BREATHEWATCHLISTENTOUCH takes its name from Ono's Dance Piece X, a Fluxus score that commands the performer to

    "Breathe

    Watch

    Listen

    Touch

    and move between

    the Earth

    and the Sky."

    Throughout this exceptional evening at Walt Disney Concert Hall, both Ono's art and music will be performed by an ensemble of special guests in a concert-length celebration of her sixty-plus-year career. Tickets for this performance will go on sale on a later date, to be announced.

    April 6, 2019: Patricia Kopatchinskaja performs Fluxus works at Getty Museum

    Fluxus will return to the Getty Museum for a solo performance of Fluxus works by Patricia Kopatchinskaja. The versatile violinist recently served as music director of the Ojai Festival. Program to be announced. Tickets for this performance will be available on a later date, to be announced.

    May 25, 2019: Ragnar Kjartansson's Bliss at REDCAT

    The final aria of Mozart's Marriage of Figaro is one of the most rapturous pieces of music ever composed, the kind of work that's so moving, you want to listen to over and over again. And that's precisely what happens in Ragnar Kjartansson's Bliss - for twelve hours. Through extreme repetition, Mozart's original composition moves from elegant to ironic to ecstatic, finally returning to its original delicacy and joy but freighted with the emotional and physical toll of the experience. The West Coast premiere will be a fully staged production, accompanied by experimental classical ensemble wild Up,under the direction of Christopher Rountree. Tickets for this performance will go on sale on a later date, to be announced. This performance is produced in partnership with REDCAT.

    June 1, 2019: David Lang crowd out at Walt Disney Concert Hall (part of Noon to Midnight)

    Pulitzer Prize winner David Lang had the inspiration for crowd out during a soccer match in London, where he heard the thousands of untrained voices swell, crest, and recede - at times in unison, and at times in total contrast with one another. He composed this major vocal work for one thousand voices as a way of framing how we understand the excitement, fear, and loneliness we feel in crowds; the text itself was crowdsourced with the help of various Internet search engines. Choreographer Dimitri Chamblaswill direct and Lesley Leighton will conduct a performance at Walt Disney Concert Hall on June 1, 2019, as part of Noon to Midnight, where performers will intermingle with the audience, slowly transforming the swirling babble and chatter into a stunningly orchestrated whirlwind of voices.

    Actor Charlotte Rae, best known for her role as Mrs. Garrett, the patient housemother at a girls' school in the 1980s sitcom The Facts of Life , has died at age 92. Rae's publicist, Harlan Boll, said she died at her Los Angeles home on Sunday, according to various sources, including The Los Angeles Times. Boll did not give a cause of death, but Rae had been diagnosed with bone cancer last year and had suffered from pancreatic cancer for several years, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Rae's character, Edna Garrett, first appeared on NBC's Diff'rent Strokes , then went on to the spinoff, The Facts of Life. The popular show lasted for nine seasons, although Rae left after seven, explaining, "I needed some time for the rest of my life." As Hollywood Reporter notes, "Debuting in 1979, Facts of Life revolved around a group of teenage girls attending a private New York boarding school.

    Updated at 4:40 p.m. ET The Southern California Gas Co., or SoCalGas, has agreed to pay $119.5 million in a settlement with several government entities over the company's massive methane natural gas leak in 2015 and 2016. The settlement still needs to be approved by the courts. During the months-long leak, the Aliso Canyon natural gas storage well spewed methane into the air. Thousands of people evacuated from Los Angeles suburb of Porter Ranch, as California declared a state of emergency . One analysis found that the disaster was the largest gas leak in U.S. history . The $119.5 million settlement deal resolves multiple lawsuits brought by Los Angeles and California government entities — the city attorney's office, the county, the state attorney general and the California Air Resources Board. "Under the terms of the $119.5 million settlement agreement, SoCalGas will, among other things, reimburse city, county and state governments for costs associated with their response to the leak;

              Comment on Brexit and Copyright: An Update on the Road to D-Day by David Collier-Brown      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Looking at this from the point of view of a philosopher, it is an interesting real-world "experiment" in removing and then recreating borders. When Britain and the UK were part of the EU, one part of copyright changed significantly: one did not have per-country trade barriers applying to books and broadcast. The pre-EU regime had effective shipping and translations barriers to prevent commercial book dealing, and publishers took good advantage of that. My own publisher, O'Reilly, made separate deals for French, German and Polish translations, and had those copies printed in Europe. The EU changed all that. For certain publishers, significantly for the worse. Broadcast was harder: Radio waves are no respecters of borders, and have a reasonable range. I could listen to WBZ in Boston, Mass from Chatham, Ontario. "Community antenna television" mutated into cable, however, and recreated geographical controls. Again, the destruction of borders by the EU changed all that. Internet was harder still. If you were willing to watch, listen and write in the language where postings originated, you could communicate as if borders no longer existed. The copyright breach of a "screener" in Los Angeles was no longer just a concern in the US, it was a loss of income from that move word-wide. As you noted above, the EU enabled communications via the Online Content Portability Regulation/, /making /legal/ multicast and broadcast communications border-free. Now the EU is headed away from the EU. English-speaking publishers probably won't notice: most of the borders in their business model these days are ones of language. Setting up a branch office and a printing contract in Ulan Bator isn't hard: translating to Outer Mongolian (is there even such a language?) is harder. The visible difference will be in broadcast and multicast media. Britain and the EU created a good simulation of a borderless regime in the content portability regulations, which are no more. Everyday internet continues to flow as it did before, mostly subject to the recipient being able to understand the language of the speaker. The contradiction between the last two will be something to watch. If a Brit in Spain wants to read the BBC website, there is no border, and leaving the EU has no effect.  If our Brit, however, wants to their UK Netflix, That just changed.  Will Spain allow him to use a VPN back to England, or will they call for their own "great firewall of china" to make British broadcasters negotiate tariffs with them? Borders and translation created for us the phrase "May you live in exciting times, and come to the attention of the mighty". Changing borders may make that apply once more to Britain and the UK.

              California just had its hottest month on record, and that means more wildfires      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    California just had its hottest month on record, and that means more wildfiresIt should come as no surprise that California is burning.  On Wednesday, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) reported that July was California's hottest month since record keeping began in 1895. Those scorching temperatures withered the land, creating profoundly parched forests primed to catch fire with just a spark.  SEE ALSO: Engineering Earth's climate might quell global warming, but it could come with a cost Major wildfires are propelled by weather, notably strong winds, but they're also enhanced by overall rising global temperatures due to human-caused climate change, say scientists. This is a particularly stark reality in California, where even in early July, fire scientists noted that the state's vegetation reached near-record dryness.  On Monday, the Mendocino Complex Fire became the largest blaze in state history, easily outpacing the Thomas Fire, which broke the record just this past winter.  Just in: #California had its warmest July on record, as hot, dry weather fueled multiple #wildfires across the state. https://t.co/ggKyL5hS1V — NOAA Satellites (@NOAASatellites) August 8, 2018 Nearly the entire Golden State experienced either record heat or temperatures "much above average" in July, said NOAA.  However, California wasn't alone in experiencing scorching temperatures and multiple heat waves.  Most of the West was abnormally warm, and in the contiguous U.S., May through July temperatures were also the warmest on record, eclipsing the previous record set in 1934. Image: noaaAs climate and environmental scientists are quick to point out, individual temperature records are not too meaningful — it's the long-term trends that matter.  And California's summer heat is certainly a continuation of accelerating warming trends in both the U.S. and around the globe.   Heat waves and longer warming spells will certainly happen, regardless of what the climate is doing, as big blobs of warm air can settle over areas, like California or Europe, for extended periods of time.  But the climate is simply warmer that it was a half century ago, giving hot temperatures an extra boost — which can mean vast swathes of land are turned to fire-ready tinder.   #HolyFire appears to be picking up significantly, making a run to the north, along eastern side of the ridge leading up to Santiago Peak. Current view from HPWREN's camera #CAwx #OrangeCounty #Riverside #SanDiego pic.twitter.com/eqc3gnZ6nR — NWS San Diego (@NWSSanDiego) August 8, 2018 Yet another heat wave continues this week in portions of California, like Los Angeles. As might be expected, this doesn't bode well for the already dry vegetation in the region. Southern California's Holly Fire is now actively growing near suburban neighborhoods. Relieving rains aren't expected in much of the state for months.  California, like recently scorched Greece, experiences the dry, warm summers defined by the Mediterranean climate. Historically, fires happen during this time of year.  But now — just like heat waves around the world — they're getting worse. And the consequences are plainly visible.  WATCH: This "horror" was spotted off the coast of the Carolinas



              WVPT Presents The Last Five Years At MAC      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    West Virginia Public Theatre (WVPT) brings another piece of Broadway to North-Central West Virginia: Directed by Jen Coles, The Last Five Years is an intimate, funny, and devastatingly honest examination of life and love. The musical opens on Friday, September 7 at 8pm, with additional shows on September 8, 13-15 at 8pm and a matinee on September 9 at 2pm. All performances will take place at the Tanner Theatre at Monongalia Arts Center (MAC).

    In The Last Five Years, an up-and-coming novelist and a struggling actress recall the highs and lows of their relationship through a series of songs, starting from opposite points in time and meeting in the middle.

    Jason Robert Brown's Drama Desk Award winning musical premiered in 2001 with Sherie Renee Scott (Aida) as Cathy and Norbert Leo Butz (Wicked) as Jamie and has since been adapted into a film featuring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan. It has been performed to rave reviews all over the world and is now making its professional Morgantown premiere starring Nora Perone and Daniel Stevens, with direction by Jen Coles and musical direction by R.J. Nestor.

    Perone and Stevens, both West Virginians and alumni of WVU, have taken their acting careers far, to Los Angeles and London, respectively. Both are returning to their home state to support local arts organizations.

    WVPT is partnering with the award-winning UK theatre company Streetlights, People! Productions on this show and working with local and International Artists. "Collaborations like this are crucial to the WVPT mission," says Jerry McGonigle, Artistic Director of West Virginia Public Theatre. "We are honored and excited about this production and proud to bring it to the Morgantown community."

The fact that the decision was largely disputed doesn't take away from how surprising it felt, especially considering Johnson had finished Cejudo inside of one round when they met in 2016.

    The Boston Celtics will face the Philadelphia 76ers on opening night, which will fall on Tuesday, October 16, 2018 at 8pm, at TD Garden in Boston.

    The team will follow that up with a match against the Toronto Raptors with their newest acquired player, Kawhi Leonard, on Friday, October 19 at 8pm in that city. The Cs will also play the 76ers in a rematch game of opening night on Christmas Day, also a home game for Boston.

    Personally, I'd have enjoyed a Golden State Warriors-Celts matchup given they are the more likely NBA Finals opponents than any other team in the East save arguably the Raps, injuries and the whims of the basketball gods aside, but that honor goes to the Oklahoma City Thunder.


    The Los Angeles Lakers and their newest player acquisition, LeBron James, will have the honor of getting obliterated by the Dubs, who seems like they would have been better served with a game against the 76ers, a team he spurned the advances of in free agency this summer.

    It's looking quite possible Boston will get the booby-prize of two wins on key dates of the season (if a booby-prize that can be called) instead, but if you need any help with this sort of thing, Adam Silver, I'm free pretty much whenever.

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

    Submitted by Priceonomics

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

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

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

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

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

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

    ***

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    ***

    Conclusion

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

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

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

    Two Mexican American girls and their brother enjoy dancing as a way to keep their spirits up during World War II.  They live near Los Angeles and come in contact with the soldiers who are on their way to fight in the Pacific.  This book explores the way the Mexican Americans were discriminated against during this time in history.  Some of the male dancers would wear baggy suits that were known as Zoot suits and these dancers were targeted by racist soldiers.  Through the eyes of three characters their feelings of racial tension are explored.  

    I know my description doesn’t do this book justice.  I love that Engle writes historical fiction about events that are less known.  The way she expressed the discrimination some Mexican Americans felt during World War II is very well done.  This book is written in poems which gave the history a feeling instead of a bunch of facts.  Well done.

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

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

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

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

    WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) — Chelsea Gray scored 19 points, Candace Parker had 13 points, eight rebounds and six assists and the Los Angeles Sparks beat the New York Liberty 82-81 on Wednesday night.

    Ever wanted the inside scoop on crashing that exclusive party, getting better than average dope, and spending the night with someone you'd be ashamed to be seen with the next morning?

    Filmmaker Paul Sapiano answers your questions on these and many other critical areas of the party lifestyle in this satiric comedy. Presented in part as a faux-documentary and in part as the story of a typical night in the life of a handful of Los Angeles nightlife mavens.

    The Boys & Girls Guide to Getting Down offers "useful" advice on getting into the club, scamming free drinks, tipping the bar staff, dealing with uncooperative drug dealers, talking your way into an all-star after party, how to attract women by pretending to be gay, and getting rid of last night's pickup in the cold light of the morning.

    The Boys & Girls Guide to Getting Down received its world premiere at the 2006 Los Angeles Film Festival.

    So glad you're still with us, David!! Quite a shake up you had! I read some good ones this month, so I'll start off my list with the best one ;) Getting Started by David Allen, 2017, 4★s Loved it, David!!! My Goodreads review: I really enjoyed this book of columns from the first four years of David's writing for the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin (where he is still writing up storm!) in the Los Angeles area. His humor is very dry and infectious (kind of sounds like a disease, doesn't it?!), and I love it! It was also fun for me to read since I know David and several times he made reference to his home town, where I still live :) It was also interesting to read the articles since they were written in 1997-2000. The twenty year span, between the writing and reading it now, was fascinating -- seeing how some things had changed a lot, and some.... well, not at all ;) I highly recommend this book to anyone with a sense of humor - it's really fun! Love Conquers All by Robert Benchley, 1922, 4★s So funny! I really enjoyed these short articles written by Robert Benchley in 1922. Really cute, and some are very apropos for today! And also, fun for me, because I read David's book "Getting Started" at the same time. I could definitely see Benchley's influence on your writing, David! And can see why he is one of your favorites. Thanks for recommending his writing to us on this book blog -- well worth my time :) Ten Days in the Mad-House by Nellie Bly, 1887, 4★s Unbelievable! And very brave of Nellie Bly to investigate and publish this story. Kudos to her! And you call yourself a reporter, David. All you had to do was put on a space suit! ;) The Life and Times of The Thunderbolt Kid by Bill Bryson, 2006, 4★s This is a wonderful, funny, and very entertaining trip down memory lane. This is my second reading and I enjoyed it just as much the second time! Bill Bryson tells the story of his boyhood, growing up in Iowa during the 1950's. And though some of the stories are exaggerated, they all ring true to what was happening at the time, and the joy and freedom that the adults and children of the age experienced. Along with the humor, Bryson also adds in some history and details of the time which were very interesting. Overall, it is a good summertime read that brings you back to your own childhood memories no matter what age you are! I highly recommend it to all :) (I listened to the audio book which is read by the author, and I loved hearing him tell his own story!) (I've read seven of Bryson's books and always enjoy them!) The Heart of the Matter by Graham Greene, 1948, 4★s I enjoyed this story of a "pious and righteous" man serving in a British colony in West Africa who gets himself into a scrape (involving two women, what else?) that he can't seem to get out of = "fall from grace." I always enjoy Greene's writing. He makes you feel like you're there with the characters. (I'm going for "The Power and the Glory" next!) Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk by Kathleen Rooney, 2017, 4★s I loved this story of an 84-year-old woman walking through the streets of New York City on New Year's Eve, 1984. As she walks she relives previous years of her life, as well as encountering a variety of people along the way. She also tells of her love for New York City and how it has changed since she arrived in 1926. It is interesting to hear her tell of the New York City of the '20's, '30's, '40's, and into the '80's, and the reader can compare the New York City up through 2018 -- very cool! As this is historical fiction, it is interesting to know that the character Lillian Boxfish is based on Margaret Fishback who really did work in advertising for R.H. Macy's, and many of her works can be researched and viewed online. Also, this book was written with the cooperation of Fishback's family. I enjoyed this book so much, and I will also say that I listened to the audio book, which was read by Xe Sands, who did a marvelous job! I highly recommend this book and the audio book! Cry, the Beloved Country by Alan Paton, 1948, 4★s This is one I wish I would have read long ago! Wonderfully written, thought-provoking, and though it was sorrowful subject matter, it was easy to read and understand. I recommend this one to all! The Sorrows of Young Werther by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, 1774, 4★s Wow! I ended up really enjoying this one even though it was so sad, and poor Werther really went off the deep end! I had not read Goethe before and was surprised and pleased that it was pretty easy to read and understand. Also, short! I'd recommend it if you need something from the 1700's! White Teeth by Zadie Smith, 2000, 3★s Well...it was interesting...I kept wanting to read and see how all these people were connected and where the story was going...but, IMO, it kind of fizzled out in the end. It seemed to build to a climax and then just ended quickly. I liked the writing and the characters, I just kind of wish that the story was a little better. I know it is an award winner, so maybe it was me. I don't say "don't read it," just try it with an open mind and maybe you'll like it better than I did :) The Hunchback of Notre-Dame by Victor Hugo, 1831, 2.5★s I'm glad I read this and can say "I read The Hunchback of Notre-Dame." But it really was a slog to get through. I really wanted to like it, but it was just a very difficult read. Very hard to pick through all the descriptions and other junk to get to the actual story. And I have no idea how Disney could have made a children's movie out of this since everyone dies in end!! My guess is that they just re-wrote the story to say whatever they wanted :/ But I get to mark it off the list!!

    Jen Awad - Break A Man.

    Background - Grab the nearest fire extinguisher cos Jen Awad is about to set your wig alight. This half Egyptian, half Peruvian powerhouse delivers the kneecap melting soul and sass of Etta James combined with an in-your-face swagger reminiscent of Tina Turner. Self taught on vocals, piano, guitar and bass, Jen also pens the lyrics to all of her material.
      
    Jen's ability to deliver cherubic, velvety vocals that effortlessly transition into the radical rumble of a runaway 18 wheeler doing 90 mph on an open highway is a feat in itself to witness live. Backed by an eight member band with a horn section, Jen Awad packs a combination punch that will leave your core ringing in the most delectable manner imaginable. Recently Jen Awad has been selected to play the Broke L.A. Festival, being 1 of 50 acts chosen out of 700 contenders. She has consistently filled her local L.A. venues to maximum capacity and is steadily gaining ground as a widely respected act in the L.A. music scene. 
      
    When Jen is not writing and performing her music, she is designing for her self-titled label Jen Awad, as well as the urban men's line also out of Los Angeles called "900". It is not a rare sight to behold her 8 piece band donning metallic bomber jackets Jen designed from the "900" label. A few other clients who wear Jen Awad's fashions are: Kali Uchis, Bebe Rexha, Keyshia Cole, Madame Ghandi, Ivy LevIn, Daya, India Love, Christina Milian, Ashanti, Chanel West Coast, and Crystal Westbrooks. 
      
    Jen Awad comments - "Break a Man was originally written about the fragility of men. I like to leave it up to interpretation of the listener and however they identify with the song. The origin of break a man was inspired by an article i read in esquire magazine title "100 ways to build a man". Reading the heartfelt article about men sharing their stories about their dads and those defining moments of what built them to be great men brought me to tears. Having been around so many damaged men i realized it took almost nothing to break a man. the song than progresses and discusses how sometimes a woman has to do what she has to do in order to break out of a toxic relationship even if it means hurting someone to set them selves free. its never the intent to destroy someone going in to a relationship..it just happens" - TWITTER.


    With a deep breath or a sigh (I haven't quite figure out which yet) 'Break A Man' rapidly builds into a gorgeous and vital song. The passion simmers and then boils over into a classic full bodied soul masterpiece, the band and backing singers are majestic, and any fragile men had better watch out!

    Hey Harriett - Too Fast Too Soon.

    Background - Forming in 2017, Hey Harriett is an indie/surf/rock band that has made leaps and bounds in the Adelaide music scene. To the outsider it may seem that Hey Harriett appeared out of nowhere but those closer to the project know that this has been a long time coming for front woman and singer/songwriter Georgy Rochow. Too Fast Too Soon is their latest single. Taking the heartache and uncertainty of young love and wrapping it in indie goodness, Too Fast Too Soon is soaked in positivity and one to get you on the dance floor. 

    Hey Harriett released their debut single Old Parts in November 2017, just months after they formed, proving the hardworking passionate nature of this band family. Launching the single backyard gig style, saw a humble garden in Bowden full of happy faces dancing in moonlight, drunk off a full day line up of local music.

    Following the release of Old Parts, Hey Harriett have been gigging non stop. Winning over audiences in Adelaide and Melbourne this band pulls on your heartstrings whilst getting your body moving to the music. The best way to describe this band is; soaked in positivity, a band full of believers and big thinkers. Hitting the road this year for a few sneaky interstate shows, Hey Harriett is spreading their positive vibe wherever they go. Aspiring towards bigger stages in 2019, this band sits solidly in the indie rock scene.

    With budding sound engineers making up the band, they are tackling recording themselves. Self producing, recording and mixing takes a little extra time but the result is a recording that is 100% Hey Harriett from start to finish. With no limits for Hey Harriett, their latest single will be launched in Willunga as Georgy turns another property into a mini festival only this time think open fires, camping village, vintage clothes, and local food and beverages. Proving herself as a band leader and event manager, this band is getting a name for their backyard bonanzas.

    Rising through the ranks, Hey Harriett is quickly becoming the word on the town. Led by a fierce woman with her eye on the prize, this band pumps out indie bangers quicker than you can say San Cisco. Less than a year in from their first release, it’s going to be an exciting, wild ride with these folk. FACEBOOK.


    'Too Fast Too Soon' is a vibrant indie song that keeps things simple, allowing the upbeat melodic vocals and delightfully tight music to quickly work there way under your skin.

    John Hiatt - Cry To Me.

    Background - John Hiatt is set to return with The Eclipse Sessions on October 12th, 2018 via New West Records. The 11-track set is the Grammy nominated legend’s first new album in four years. It was produced by Kevin McKendree (Delbert McClinton) and features Hiatt’s longtime drummer Kenneth Blevins and bassist Patrick O’Hearn, as well as Yates McKendree (Kevin’s then 16-year old wunderkind son, who also engineered). Hiatt places The Eclipse Sessions in a lineage alongside two of his greatest works -- 1987’s mainstream breakthrough Bring the Family, which sprung from an impulsive four-day session with an all-star combo led by Ry Cooder, and 2000’s Crossing Muddy Waters, an unplanned and largely unplugged effort that garnered a Grammy Award nomination and also set Hiatt on the rootsier path he’s still pursuing today. “The three albums are very connected in my mind,” Hiatt says. “They all have a vibe to them that was unexpected. I didn’t know where I was going when I started out on any of them. And each one wound up being a pleasant surprise.”

    Since the release of Hiatt’s 1974 debut, Hangin’ Around the Observatory, rarely has more than a year or two passed without a new collection hitting the shelves. But after wrapping up a year of touring in support of 2014’s Terms of My Surrender -- the singer-songwriter’s 22nd studio effort overall -- he found himself, for the first time in a long time, unsure of what would come next. “I’ve been lost before,” Hiatt says. “Although usually I have some sort of notion or clue where to go. But this time? I had no sense whatsoever.” He continues, “I wanted to spend more time with my family (which includes his critically acclaimed singer-songwriter daughter Lilly). I was aging, with all that entails or doesn’t entail. Stuff was just happening.”

    During this period of transition Hiatt did compose a new song that closes The Eclipse Sessions - a dusty, road-worn meditation titled “Robber’s Highway” with the ominously prophetic lyrics “I had words, chords and strings / now I don’t have any of these things.”  Hiatt explains, “I was just thinking in terms of somebody who’s out there hammerin’ away with his music, wondering what it’s all coming to.  And maybe the songs just aren’t there anymore…” Fast-forward a few years, however, and it’s clear the songs are still very much there as the 11 tracks presented here demonstrate that the singer-songwriter, now 66-years-old, is only getting better with age, his guitar playing more rugged and rootsy, his words wiser and more wry. 

    True to its title, Hiatt and his band were hard at work on August 21st, 2017 when a solar eclipse traveled the length of the continental U.S. “I think we recorded three songs that day, and then we took a break to go outside and watch everything happen,” Hiatt says.  What he observed amongst his fellow Nashvillians during that moment of totality -- his city was one of a few spots in the U.S. to be plunged into near complete darkness -- did give him pause. “It seemed everything stopped for a minute or two,” he says. “It was like a magical little bit of time, a harmonic convergence or something. Like everybody was on the same page.” NEW WEST RECORDS.


    I am always pleased to feature new music from an artist or band that are older than me (something that is becoming increasingly more of a challenge). Anyhow 'Cry To Me' sees John Hiatt demonstrating that he is not without fresh new musical ideas, and with years of experience and a fine gathering of musicians, his music remains engaging, honest and lovable.

              Oscar quer incluir categoria de melhor filme pop      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    GUILHERME GENESTRETI

    SÃO PAULO, SP (FOLHAPRESS) - A Academia de Ciências e Artes Cinematográficas, responsável pela entrega das estatuetas do Oscar, estuda incluir uma nova categoria na premiação: melhor filme popular.

    A ideia faz parte de um conjunto de novas medidas que a entidade votou na noite desta segunda (7), em Los Angeles, e que quer implantar a partir dos próximos anos.

    Segundo a ata da reunião, a tal nova categoria seria voltada a produções populares que tivessem se destacado. Os critérios da seleção, contudo, serão anunciados futuramente.

    Outras alterações dizem respeito à transmissão da cerimônia.

    Para que tudo caiba no período de três horas, a Academia quer apresentar algumas das categorias ao vivo, durante os intervalos comerciais, e depois mostrar uma versão editada dos vencedores durante a transmissão. Ainda não definiram, entretanto, quais seriam essas categorias.

    As mudanças fazem parte de um grande esforço para popularizar o Oscar.

    A cerimônia deste ano, que premiou o filme "A Forma da Água", teve uma queda de 19% da audiência televisiva em relação à do ano passado. Incluir categoria de filme popular e encurtar a transmissão é uma forma de tentar reverter esse quadro.

    Nos últimos anos, a maior premiação do cinema hollywoodiano também tem sido alvo de críticas por falta de representatividade de minorias.
    Em 2016, por exemplo, o órgão foi bombardeado por ter apenas atores brancos entre os indicados, o que despertou o surgimento da campanha #OscarsSoWhite.

    Para contornar a questão, a Academia tem diversificado as origens e etnias de seus novos membros. Em junho deste ano, fez um convite a 928 pessoas de 59 países, dos quais 49% são mulheres. No ano passado, o convite aos mais de 700 novos membros incluía 30% de pessoas não brancas.

    Aye, there is little "aid" in financial aid, it is a loan. No, I would not feel I am "taking advantage" of that system. As I noted earlier, there are two universities within biking distance of my home (one private, one public) where kids can pretty easily cash-flow the entirety of their own tuition with part-time and/or summer jobs. I have one sister that just finished, debt-free (no my mother cannot afford to help and she doesn't, nor should she, feel guilty about it), and another who is a freshman. There happens to be another poster (literallyironic) who lives in the same area; it is no coincidence that his viewpoint on this is the same as mine - most students in this area pay for their college education completely on their own.


    Not sure how to reconcile those two statements bolded above. But, I think you have answered my question sufficiently.

    We will have to agree to disagree on philosophy regarding taking financial responsibility for kids education, if you can afford to do so.

    It is an individual choice.


    We very clearly were raised, and currently live, in totally different worlds, but judge on morally superior parent. Geez, what must you think of my parents and in-laws, who not only did not offer parental assistance for our education, but are now financially dependent on us as they come close to retirement?



    As I stated earlier, my wife and I have not decided whether we will or will not provide financial assistance with higher education costs, but the judgement from those on this board who are adamant that it is an unconditional parental responsibility is downright shocking.

    You seem to be making some assumptions about my upbringing without any knowledge. If you were raised in the US, I can assure you my childhood almost certainly made yours look like you were living in the lap of luxury. But, I don't think the fact that I raised out of poverty somehow makes me superior to others who were born into better circumstances, nor do i have a chip on my shoulder about it.



    You mentioned that your parents and in-laws were not in a financial position to provide support. So, I am not sure what the relevance is to the question of whether a family who can easily afford to support their kid's college education should do so or not. As I stated before, it is a personal choice, and there is no right answer. But, passing the costs on to society and claiming it is to teach independence does seem a bit ironic.



    You never did answer the question regarding "no debt" and "aid is all loans" statements.


    What questions regarding loans and debt? I am not making any assumptions about your upbringing. Whatever it was, it resulted in you having a completely different viewpoint than mine - and that is A-OK in my book. I have a completely different viewpoint than two of my 4 blood siblings on this particular topic even though all of us were raised in the same home, by the same mother who dropped out of school at 15 because she was pregnant, raised all 5 of us alone since she was 23 in a 2bdr/1bath ~800sq ft home by working as a medical assistant in arguably the worst neighborhood in Los Angeles. Those siblings also happen to currently live in different areas of the country than I; here young adults covering the entirety of their university education is for the most part expected (and it is very possible to do debt-free with how cheap it is). We have opinions, the fact that they are different doesn't make either one of us wrong or deserving of judgement from the other.



    Make no mistake, my mother and in-laws did not have the means to help us, but that was a choice in itself. My mom could have worked another job or maybe not had 5 children by the age of 23 without a stable partner. My MIL could have worked at all (she has never had a job, including the 10yrs since her youngest left the home, despite her family being in dire straits). We all have choices, they decided that helping their children financially pay for education wasn't one they were willing to sacrifice to make possible. I do not fault them for making that choice. I love them all, all 3 of them were fantastic parents despite making choices I would not have.



    We have a difference of opinion about parental responsibility in regards to financing our children's choices as young adults, and again, my wife and I have not even ultimately made a decision about what we will do. More than anything, I am playing devil's advocate because I find the judgment of some in this thread appalling.

    Very much agree that reasonable people can come to different decisions on this topic. Everyone has to find their own comfort level.

              Story Links to Story: In Recent News, Female Church Member Accuses Megachurch Pastor of Sexual Assault, Catholic Women Come Forth to Tell Stories of Assault, Political and Religious Right Keeps Pinning Abuse on Gays       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   


    Pieces of commentary I've read in the past few days that are, in my view, much more illuminating when read side-by-side:


    Laurie Goodstein, "He's a Superstar Pastor. She Worked for Him and Says He Groped Her Repeatedly": 

    Stunned, she remembered feeling unable to say no to her boss and pastor as he straddled her, unhooked her bra and touched her near her breasts. She remembered feeling his hands shake. 
    That first back rub in 1986 led to multiple occasions over nearly two years in which he fondled her breasts and rubbed against her. The incidents later escalated to one occasion of oral sex. Ms. Baranowski said she was mortified and determined to stay silent.... 
    Since the #MeToo movement emerged last year, evangelical churches have been grappling with allegations of sexual abuse by their pastors. A wave of accusations has begun to hit evangelical institutions, bringing down figures like the Rev. Andy Savage, at Highpoint Church in Memphis, and the Rev. Harry L. Thomas, the founder of the Creation Festival, a Christian music event.

    As Mary E Hunt told us in a recent article that I shared a few weeks back and now want to share again, the abuse narrative in the Catholic church has moved from a focus on minors assaulted by clerics to a focus now on adults who have been assaulted, and, increasingly, on nuns and laywomen assaulted by priests, whose stories are just being heard due to the #MeToo movement. Mary Hunt writes,

    Adult women who have been sexually involved with priests represent the third element of this complicated problem. Until and unless their stories are told and the implications parsed, I doubt that the abuse of young people and of employees will be solved. 
    Here's why: The abuse of minors and the utilization of underlings are variants on the systematic abuse of women rooted in an ideology of female subordination to male power. To have that top-down schema recapitulated with young and vulnerable men is totally consistent with the patriarchal logic on which it is based. 
    As long as that ideology remains in place, there is little hope for much-needed changes in priestly behavior and ecclesial structures. There is little hope for the whole church. 


    Raised in a conservative Catholic family in Minnesota, Rachel Mastrogiacomo went to the ultra-right-wing Francsican university at Steubenville, and then on to Rome to study theology. There she met Jacob Bertrand, who was also studying theology and was a deacon who was later ordained a priest.

    He began grooming her, telling her of visions the Lord had sent him of sexual activity with her. And then this happened: 

    After months of "spiritual direction," Bertrand took Mastrogiacomo's virginity. During a private Mass in the loft of her grandmother's Wisconsin cabin, he persuaded her to engage in sexual activities. 
    "This wasn't an ordinary sexual experience between two consenting adults," said Mastrogiacomo. "It was during the celebration of the Mass, with candles lit, very ritualistic." 
    A day or two later, the same scene played out in the Minnesota home of Mastrogiacomo's mother and step-father. Giving herself to him during a religious service, Bertrand told her, was God’s will. 
    "This was far worse, far more ritualistic," she said. 
    When Bertrand, by then an ordained priest assigned to a parish in San Diego, requested more encounters, she refused. 
    "Father," she said, "I have done God's will and I don't want to do this any more.


    Although most attention amid the clerical sexual abuse crisis has been on minors, recent cases of priests and bishops who have taken advantage of vulnerable adults or those under their guidance also have come to light. 
    One such case involves Theodore McCarrick, the 88-year-old retired Archbishop of Washington and Newark who resigned his post in the College of Cardinals following "credible and substantiated" accusations of sexual abuse of minors and multiple accounts of sexual misconduct with seminarians. 
    A second example is a recent report by the Associated Press detailing accounts of religious sisters and nuns who have either been sexually assaulted or raped by priests or bishops, and who have chosen to speak out as part of what has been dubbed the Church’s own "#MeToo" movement. 
    In addition to these sisters, a nun in India also recently accused a bishop of rape, charging that other members of Church hierarchy in the country, such as Cardinal George Alencherry, head of the Syro-Malabar Church in India, knew about it and did nothing. 
    Yet another example, only now coming to light, is the case of Rachel Mastrogiacomo, who, at age 24, was raped in Satanic cult-like fashion by a Catholic priest as he celebrated a private Mass for the two of them. And, she says, when she came forward to the Church, they covered it up.


    "The main thing was not to help children, but to avoid 'scandal,'" the grand jury report says.
    "Several diocesan administrators, including the bishops, often dissuaded victims from reporting abuse to police, pressured law enforcement to terminate or avoid an investigation, or conducted their own deficient, biased investigation without reporting crimes against children to the proper authorities," the report says.


    In the weeks since allegations were made against Archbishop McCarrick, some commentators and clergy have suggested that allowing gay men to be priests has created a culture ripe for the kind of abuse Archbishop McCarrick is alleged to have committed. 
    But Cardinal Cupich said he 'would be very careful' in accepting that conclusion, noting that similar claims made during the height of the child sexual abuse crisis in the 2000s were refuted by an independent 2011 report compiled by the John Jay College of Criminal Justice. 
    "I really believe that the issue here is more about a culture of clericalism in which some who are ordained feel they are privileged and therefore protected so that they can do what they want," Cardinal Cupich said. 
    "People, whether heterosexual or homosexual, need to live by the Gospel," he said, adding that he "would not want to reduce this simply to the fact that there are some priests who are homosexual."
    "I think that is a diversion that gets away from the clericalism that's much deeper as a part of this problem," he said.'


    The question of who in the church hierarchy learned of the allegations against McCarrick — and when — has thus spawned its own predictable controversy. Some Catholics have blamed the hierarchy’s lax attitude toward abuse claims on a modern, Pope Francis-inflected tolerance for gay priests and disregard for traditional church doctrine on sexual morality.

    But it was Pope Saint John Paul the Great who made McCarrick a cardinal, when, as we now know, the Vatican had been informed about McCarrick's behavior — not Pope Francis. Francis inherited this problem from Saint John Paul the Great, the same pope who protected the notorious abuser Marcial Maciel.

    And it was under Saint John Paul the Great and his orthodoxy watchdog Cardinal Ratzinger, later Benedict XVI, that gay people were relentlessly attacked in the church, defined as intrinsically disordered — not coddled or told we were welcome.

    I think we are just beginning to see the first wave of shattering testimony by women who have experienced sexual abuse by pastors in churches, from Catholic to mainline Protestant to evangelical ones. White evangelical churches, which are even more of a problem in producing the authoritarian culture that undergirds the Trump presidency than the Catholic community is, have have long pointed the finger at the Catholic church, blaming its abuse problems on gay priests, and pretending that abuse doesn't exist in evangelical churches — because the pastors of those churches aren't, they've told us, gay. Right-wing Catholics who are deeply, intractably homophobic, who are energized by hatred of LGBTQ people, have colluded in making these charges at the same time that they decry reflex anti-Catholicism in U.S. Protestantism.

    But the abuse in both Catholic and evangelical churches never has been about sexual orientation. It has been about men's astonishing sense of entitlement, of ownership, of invulnerability. It has been about abuse of power. It has been about patriarchal systems that give men that astonishing sense of entitlement. Until those systems are exposed and challenged, the abuse problems will remain in all patriarchal institutions, both faith-based ones and secular ones.

    Despite such clear data showing us that this is the case, that the abuse problems in faith communities and secular institutions are rooted in patriarchal assumptions (which is also to say, in homophobic and heterosexist assumptions), a certain slice of right-wing Catholics deeply fixated on pinning the abuse situation on gay priests and making it about sexual orientation are already gearing up to force whatever findings we read in the Pennsylvania report into their sexual-orientation-explains-it-all-for-you mold. As if the stories of nuns abused by priests and laywomen abused by priests count for nothing at all — as if those human beings count for nothing at all…

    It's all about the gays, or it's about nothing.

    Go figure. Hate's evidently a powerfully addictive drug.

    Hayley Miller, "USC President Steps Down Amid Gynecologist Sex Abuse Scandal": 

    University of Southern California President C. L. Max Nikias stepped down on Tuesday amid a sex abuse scandal involving a former campus gynecologist. 
    Students and faculty had been calling for Nikias' ouster since May, when the Los Angeles Times reported that the school had allowed Dr. George Tyndall to remain on staff for decades, despite repeated sexual misconduct complaints against him….
    Tyndall, 71, worked at USC's student health clinic for nearly 30 years, despite repeated accusations by students and staff that he touched patients inappropriately during exams, made suggestive remarks, and photographed students’ genitals. His behavior was particularly inappropriate toward international students from Asia, several witnesses reported. 
    USC suspended Tyndall in 2016 after a campus nurse reported him to the school's rape crisis center

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    What to look for…
