          In Oakland, More Data Hasn't Meant Less Racial Disparity During Police Stops      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
For more than 15 years, Oakland's police department has been under federal oversight following a police abuse and racial profiling scandal. As part of a negotiated settlement in 2003, the city agreed to work toward sweeping police reforms. The Riders Settlement mandated ongoing monitoring of the department, including the collection of data on police stops and an end to discriminatory policing. But there's mounting frustration that federal oversight and better data collection have not led to real change, despite a massive price tag. For the past few years, Stanford University researchers have helped the Oakland Police Department analyze the data collected from every police stop and arrest. Studies carried out by the Stanford team show that Oakland officers are still far more likely to stop, search and handcuff black people than white people during a traffic or pedestrian stop. Analysis of bodycam footage also showed that, during traffic stops, officers spoke less respectfully to black
          Moneyball: A value investing parable      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
I don’t like baseball. My baseball career lasted for exactly one season as an outfielder in the fourth grade, wherein I suffered more blows to the head than I really care to remember (or actually can, come to think of it), and my relationship with the sport has been...uh, negative ever since. Despite all this, I really loved Moneyball.

I first saw it on Seth Klarman’s recommended reading list. I wasn’t sure about it - the subject matter obviously wasn’t my cup of tea - but I’ve enjoyed other Michael Lewis books like Liar’s Poker and The Big Short, so I figured I’d give it a whirl.

Moneyball tells the story of the Oakland Athletics, one of baseball’s poorest teams, and their unorthodox ascent to the league’s upper tier. As the title of this post suggests, the process reads like a value investing parable (and the prodigal son’s got nothing on this one). It sounds corny, but it’s true: the book is an excellent expression of the experience of value investing.

Broadly speaking it covers two areas. The first is discovering hidden gems. Value investing requires that you be willing to use metrics that others don’t - or at least use them in ways that others don’t - to find the real bargains. The A’s snagged fantastic deals by using stats that actually measure value rather than more time-honored and comfortable stats. It also means focusing on the tangible present at the expense of some hypothetical future. Lewis’ transcription of the scouts’ conversations about the “potential” lurking in young players sounds like a caricature of analysts pumping up goofy story stocks with big dreams and wild valuations.

Even more than that, the book captures a second aspect of value investing (or actually any type of investing, I suppose): feeling crazy. Making the best moves by definition means making the ones that the herd isn’t, and that in turn means sticking your neck out and risking looking like a fool. That presumably is why a lot of books on value investing start off talking about ass-covering institutional imperatives and the desire of most professionals to save face first and outperform second. Pretty much anyone who’s ever made an investment can relate to the feeling of doubting your own judgment after watching a newly-purchased investment plummet. The A’s built themselves into a great team by making moves that seemed downright bizarre to outside eyes and remaining indifferent to outside judgment. They picked guys who couldn’t have made it through most teams’ tryouts; one was was overlooked for the simple reason that teams thought he was too fat.

It sounds a little goofy to refer to Moneyball as a parable, but Michael Lewis is a pretty direct writer in my experience and here sticks to that style here. He emphasizes again and again that most teams’ strategies - and a lot of baseball wisdom - are based less on facts and more on gut feeling and truthiness. Ironically, I think it does an even better job of (indirectly) evangelizing about the principles of value investing than most books/articles by value investors. A lot of value investors take on a smug or condescending tone when describing the investment practices of the non-value masses and, let’s face it, nobody likes the feeling of being talked down to. Regardless of what Warren Buffet says, value investing isn’t a binary “inoculation” process and if you’ve ever wanted to help a misguided investor (or somebody with frustrating decision-making in general) Moneyball might be a handy under-the-radar teaching tool. I can definitely see why it appealed to Klarman.

Besides all that it’s also a fun underdog story, even for someone who isn’t enthusiastic about the sport. Billy Beane is a tremendously interesting guy who combines a wild temper and lack of personal introspection with the analytical detachment necessary to question and change how baseball was managed. The account of that change is likewise fascinating. All in all, I think that constitutes an enthusiastic thumbs up for anyone who is even vaguely interested in the themes or subject matter.

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

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

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

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

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

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


From Wounded Knee to “Termination”

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

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

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

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

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

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


The Conditions that Gave Rise to Red Power

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


The Birth of the American Indian Movement

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


The Occupation of Wounded Knee

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


Repression and Decline

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          Could the Green Bay Packers Really Trade for Khalil Mack?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Khalil Mack's holdout from training camp has certainly made headlines over the last two weeks causing many to question whether Raiders General Manager Reggie McKenzie would realistically consider parting with his all-pro defender.  Mack is seeking a new contract heading into his fifth season, and the Raiders for the moment seem reluctant to extend him.  All of the ingredients seem to be in place for a lengthy standstill between Mack and the Raiders which leaves the question open to whether the Raiders would actually consider trading him. This speculation was heated up this week when news surfaced that Mack could be a potential trade candidate since there was little to no progress being made on his contract extension.  This news, as it always does, caught the attention of Packers fans nationwide because of the relationship of the Raiders and Packers front office personnel coupled with the fact that the Packers have a tremendous amount of draft capital to offer in a potential trade involving Mack.  Brian Gutekunst did little to extinguish any of the Khalil Mack to the Packers trade speculation when he spoke of his friendship with Raiders General Manager Reggie Mckenzie and said that he is open to conversations with other teams and that he and Reggie are "...going to kind of have conversations about everything..." Gutekunst's response to the Khalil Mack speculation leads me to ask a two-part question, one, is Mack worth the cost both in draft picks and money that it will cost to sign him and two, is there a realistic chance that a deal of this magnitude could happen? Is Khalil Mack Worth the Cost? First, it is important to highlight what the cost to acquire Khalil Mack would be if the Raiders were intent on trading him.  I believe that the Raiders should open the conversation by asking for both of the Packers 2019 first round picks as well as their 2020 first round pick.  If this opening offer seems too steep for the all-pro outside linebacker, let us consider the accolades that he has already achieved in his four-year career.  Mack has been selected to three pro bowls, he has two first team all-pro selections, he was the AP Defensive player of the year in 2016, and was named an all-pro at both defensive end as well as outside linebacker in 2015.  From this standpoint, it is essential for the Raiders to bring back top value for Mack if they do in fact decide to trade him. In addition to Mack's accolades, he would provide the Packers with a versatile skill set that would allow him to make an instant impact as a pass rusher, a run stopper, and a viable option to help in pass coverage at the linebacker position.  Mack's historic season in 2015 shows that he can be thrust into action at multiple positions and can thrive under multiple schemes.  Mike Pettine would be able to deploy Mack in multiple packages and feel confident that he will be the best player on the field and turn the Packers defense into a championship caliber unit. A championship caliber defense? Yes, acquiring Khalil Mack would make the Packers a championship caliber defense.   How, might you ask? Green Bay's defensive front of Mike Daniels, Kenny Clark, and Mohammed Wilkerson will be able to provide penetration against opponents offensive lines from the time that the ball is snapped.  This will allow Mike Pettine to dial up blitzes for Mack in which he would receive more unimpeded rushing lanes to the quarterback, which would allow him to make more impact plays.  This defensive approach will disrupt the timing of opposing offenses and allow the secondary to make more plays on rushed passing attempts. It is evident that Khalil Mack is worth the cost in draft picks and money that he demands from a talent standpoint, but would it be a fiscally responsible decision for the Packers to acquire him.  The reality is that it is never a fiscally responsible decision to acquire a player that will demand the salary allocation and draft capital that Mack demands.  However, it could certainly be worth the tremendous cost from a revenue standpoint if it gives the Packers a three to five-year window to legitimately contend for a super bowl during the final stretch of Aaron Rodgers career. Detractors of making a deal of this magnitude will say that there is no need for Khalil Mack when the Packers can draft and develop each and every year.  These detractors will also say that they are proven correct in their philosophy to draft and develop because of the Packers recent playoff streak which lasted for eight seasons (2009-2016).  Certainly there is a lot to say for being able to draft and develop eight straight playoff teams, but, is it possible that if the Packers signed a few more free agents or converted their draft capital into a few more impact players via trades, that we could be reflecting upon a run that would be closing in on ten straight playoff appearances, winning three super bowls?   Let me be clear, nothing in the NFL is guaranteed, however, there have been years during the Packers playoff runs where it seemed as if the team was lacking one major piece that would have gotten them over the mountaintop. Khalil Mack is certainly a player who can single-handedly change the trajectory of a franchise with his play and can be that difference maker that can get a team over the mountaintop.       For these reasons, I believe that the Packers should enter into serious negotiations with the Raiders if Mack is indeed on the trade block.  I believe that the timing and the circumstances of where both teams are at with their respective franchises could be conducive towards a potential trade match.  The Packers could use Khalil Mack's salary demands as leverage to drive Oakland to lessen their demands in order for a resolution to take place.  Conversely, Oakland could use Green Bay's need for an impactful and versatile edge rusher in an attempt to lure away both of their 2019 first round draft selections.     If both sides are willing to compromise in certain areas I could see the Packers spending one or both of their 2019 first round draft picks in a trade for Mack.  That is obviously a very steep asking price but I believe that the combination of physical talent and production that Khalil Mack could give the Packers over a three to five year period will likely outweigh the production of the first round draft prospects from next season's class. Packers Most Logical Scenario to Acquire Khalil Mack: 1. Finalize Aaron Rodgers contract extension which could clear as much as $15 million in cap space from upfront money. 2. Offer the 2019 first and second round selections in a trade proposal for Khalil Mack and prepare to potentially have to part with both 2019 first round picks in order to obtain his services from the Raiders. 3. Sign Mack to a longterm contract similar to Aaron Rodgers that will have a lot of upfront money to offset the initial cap hit from his first year's salary. 4. Prepare to let Clay Matthews leave in free agency after this season to free up an extra $11.5 million per season.                         Filed Under:  Featured NFL Categories:  Green Bay Packers Tags:  Could the Green Bay Packers Really Trade for Khalil Mack?

          In Oakland, More Data Hasn't Meant Less Racial Disparity During Police Stops      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
For more than 15 years, Oakland's police department has been under federal oversight following a police abuse and racial profiling scandal. As part of a negotiated settlement in 2003, the city agreed to work toward sweeping police reforms. The Riders Settlement mandated ongoing monitoring of the department, including the collection of data on police stops and an end to discriminatory policing. But there's mounting frustration that federal oversight and better data collection have not led to real change, despite a massive price tag. For the past few years, Stanford University researchers have helped the Oakland Police Department analyze the data collected from every police stop and arrest. Studies carried out by the Stanford team show that Oakland officers are still far more likely to stop, search and handcuff black people than white people during a traffic or pedestrian stop. Analysis of bodycam footage also showed that, during traffic stops, officers spoke less respectfully to black

          Peralta Students and Alumni Support Cindi Reiss for Board of Trustees!      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Our district is in crisis and we desperately need change.

Our classes are routinely being cut, making it more difficult for students to earn degrees and balance their work/school schedules. The district continuously pushes for large classes but fails to provide adequate support services or resources. Laney College's facilities are falling apart. As the general funds are being slashed for Laney, Merritt, Berkeley City, and the College of Alameda, the district has hired TEN Vice Chancellors. The district's lack of transparency regarding the budget, lack of responsiveness to student needs, misguided priorities and mismanagement deeply impact and horrify us!

Peralta students are well aware that the colleges have many dedicated faculty and offer great educational opportunities, but the district office and administration are terribly managed. Despite great programs at the colleges, many of us students have had extremely frustrating experiences at the district and administrative level. We fear for the future of our colleges. Oakland and the East Bay need a great public community college system that reflects our vitality and addresses our needs. The Peralta Colleges could be the right system with enough support!

We support Candidate Cindi Reiss, who is running this fall in Area 5 for the Peralta Board of Trustees. In addition to her experience as a college professor and working on the ACCJC, Cindi has met with students and asked about our needs and experiences. We believe she brings the ethical vision and experience that would greatly benefit the Peralta Board of Trustees and help our district get back on track, and truly serve our community.

We plan to actively & broadly support Candidate Reiss and to bring the Peralta District's issues into the public eye this Fall.

    You guys remember Eric Clanton, the antifa puke who bashed the Trump supporter in the head with the bike lock in Berkeley about a year ago? Well, he got let go today on a plea deal. Attempted murder and they just let him walk. No time in jail or prison, not even a felony conviction, just a bullshit misdemeanor for trying to cave someones head in with a bike lock. I'll repeat: for trying to cave someone's head in with a bike lock. Basically, this signals open season on Trump supporters and that antifa is free to inflict grave bodily injury or death without repercussions. We just took a step closer today towards Civil War, not by OUR actions but because of inaction by the government to bring to justice those who bring violence to us. Don't have a CCW? Now would be a good time to get one. It's better to have it and not need it then to need it and not have it and today proved we can no longer count on the government to bring to justice those who would attempt to kill us solely because of our political beliefs and the simple expression of these beliefs and assembly with others who share them. Stay safe out there. Shit just got ratcheted up a few notches today.

    I was not suggesting that race is a factor in how strident someone is with cops, and you should not either. There is no evidence I know of to support that view. But no matter what your race, if you get a ticket, just stay calm, be civil, thank the officer and you are much less likely to spend the week-end wearing orange, eating bologna sandwiches and picking lice out of your hair.

    I deem it very likely that two guys doing the same kind of things in the same area would have known about each other's citations. Both either knew their acts are illegal, or should have known. They understood the risks and then ignored them. But it doesn't matter either way. The noise was excessive and the cop was within his right to detain the perp. In practice I suspect that the perp answered back and remonstrated, which is usually a bad move since it's hard to talk a cop out of giving you a ticket, and pissing him off isn't real smart.

    Why do you refuse to admit that you were the one who read a paragraph incorrectly, and then moved the goalposts when called out on it? Maybe because you're not really interested in the facts (Smith and RB are not the same person), you're just trying to push a narrative. Why are you so committed to your narrative?

    It seems inconceivable that two kindred souls such as these could have had tickets for doing the same thing and they didn't discuss it. Not that it really matters - either the noise was excessive or it was not. I suspect the perp may have engaged in some pushback or ran his mouth, and that increased the odds of a trip to central lockup. Bad luck for it to be a Friday night as an OR release is hard to get over a week-end.

    Asked and answered. We've already discussed the fact that these two individuals were in the same group, and so both would have been aware of the previous citations. Not sure why you are playing a race card there. There is no evidence in the article that race was any kind of issue here. In fact I didn't even notice the race of the perp. Better question. If a driver had made the same amount of noise, and was arrested, would thee be any outrage here? Why is being on a bike make it any different? It's the noise level that is the factor.

    This reminds me of an incident a friend and I experienced in Emeryville a couple (few?) years ago. We were riding in the middle of the right lane going north on San Pablo. EPD fuzz pulled us over and was spewing such nonsense as we don't belong on the road, etc. I took a very argumentative tone with the officer, but my friend (who is African-American) took an approach that was not antagonistic in the slightest. I didn't appreciate it at the time, but because I appear white (even though I'm Latino), I didn't feel nearly at risk for police harassment like my friend did. Sometimes one doesn't appreciate privilege, even accidental privilege, except with hindsight.

    They were both on the same ride. That doesn't mean they are from the same group. Naj runs Rich City Rides, which does important bicycling outreach to the community and POC in Richmond. RB of Scraper Bikes does similar work in Oakland. This would be like saying that the mayors of Berkeley and Albany are in the same group because they happen to do the same thing in nearby communities. Just because the mayor of Berkeley got warned for something doesn't mean that the mayor of Albany also got a warning.

    The stance of the cops towards blacks is so crystal clear. Compare and contrast. I was riding to the Golden Gate Transit stop on the Golden Gate Bridge a few years back. The stop is sort of "on the bridge" or the "approach" to the bridge. To access that location I ride from the parking lot on the South Side (by the snack bar) basically "entering" the bridge roadway for roughly 20 yards at which point I get to the bus stop and get off my bike and get on the bus platform. A cop saw me riding onto the bridge and followed me buzzers and lights flashing, yelling "GET ON THE SIDEWALK" on his megaphone. When I got to the platform and got on the sidewalk, he rolled down his window and started barking at me. I barked back. I indicated that in SF it is illegal to ride on the *sidewalk*, so he was advising me to do something illegal. He said "there is a sign back there that says BIKES PROHIBITED". I said "I'm more than willing to walk down there and let you show me the imaginary sign that doesn't exist, but I'd prefer to get on my bus - you see this is a bus stop and I'm allowed to ride to the bus stop". We kept going and I was reading the cop the riot act, eventually he said "well we are just going to have to agree to disagree". In retrospect I fully believe that if I wasn't a middle age white guy on a very high end bike wearing expensive cycling kit, he would have gotten out of the car and arrested me. But I didn't even blink about yelling at the cop. That is white privilege. I instinctively knew he wouldn't do anything to me. By the way, I was right, there is no sign as he claims - but if you go 50 yards down the roadway past the bus stop and the CHP station is where the actual BIKES PROHIBITED sign is. You can ride to the bus stop and CHP but not beyond. This has probably come up before because at some point the park service stenciled a bike symbol with "BIKE ROUTE" on the sidewalk, it's mostly faded away and the symbol isn't any sort of official street signage, and without a bikes prohibited sign for the roadway it's meaningless. I wish I had said "Don't waste my time arguing, please write me a ticket, but promise to show up to court"

              In Oakland, More Data Hasn't Meant Less Racial Disparity During Police Stops      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    For more than 15 years, Oakland's police department has been under federal oversight following a police abuse and racial profiling scandal. As part of a negotiated settlement in 2003, the city agreed to work toward sweeping police reforms. The Riders Settlement mandated ongoing monitoring of the department, including the collection of data on police stops and an end to discriminatory policing. But there's mounting frustration that federal oversight and better data collection have not led to real change, despite a massive price tag. For the past few years, Stanford University researchers have helped the Oakland Police Department analyze the data collected from every police stop and arrest. Studies carried out by the Stanford team show that Oakland officers are still far more likely to stop, search and handcuff black people than white people during a traffic or pedestrian stop. Analysis of bodycam footage also showed that, during traffic stops, officers spoke less respectfully to black

    While Bruce's comment holds much truth, there are some parts that could be fleshed out and/or may be mistakes.

    Among them is the notion that homeowners cannot participate in Net Metering.

    Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit RACHEL MARTIN, HOST: So Game 2 of the NBA Finals was last night. And it didn't match the drama and all-out craziness of the first game between the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers. In that one, there were blown calls that were outright errors and an overtime win for the Warriors. Still, last night in Oakland, there was history as Golden State dominated Cleveland, 122 to 103, and took a 2-games-to-none lead in the series. NPR's Tom Goldman was there, and he filed this report. TOM GOLDMAN, BYLINE: Warriors fans weren't going to let Game 1 go that easily. Can you blame them? If Cleveland's J.R. Smith hadn't made a major boo-boo, dribbling the ball instead of trying to score with seconds left, the Warriors might have lost. And so it was last night. As the Cavs players were introduced pregame to a chorus of boos from the home crowd, there was this. (SOUNDBITE OF ARCHIVED RECORDING) UNIDENTIFIED ANNOUCER: J.R. Smith. (APPLAUSE) GOLDMAN:

    Don Reed is a nationally renowned comedian - maybe you've caught him during his warm-up act on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno. He started his career doing stand up, performing around the country with comedians like Chris Rock, Robert Townsend, and Damon Wayans. But, he says, when it came to getting big gigs like they did, he never made the cut. The feedback was always the same says Reed, "I'm too white." Reed isn't white though, he's black. Talent agents thought his act wasn't black enough. At the time Reed also says, "I was an impersonator. I wasn't talking about my authentic self, I wasn't portraying what was really happening in the 'hood." Not anymore. His new one-man show, "Can You Dig It?" delves intimately into his own life -- growing up black and in the "hood." He chronicles his childhood on East 14th Street in Oakland, California. Reed embodies the characters of his childhood -- morphing into his strict mother, his pimp father, and his gay brother. He incorporates lots of music

    Twenty One Pilots' 'Trench' video series has been wrapped up, with the release of the third song from their forthcoming album 'Trench'.

    The video for 'Levitate' continues the narrative established in the videos for 'Jumpsuit' and 'Nico And The Niners', both released last month.

    Check out the video for 'Levitate' below:

    When Twenty One Pilots released 'Nico And The Niners' last month, they tweeted that it was "part two of a three part story from Trench".

    This is backed up by the accompanying tweet to 'Levitate', where they shared "•••/••• a story from Trench concludes in 'Levitate'" .

    The new Twenty One Pilots album 'Trench' is set for release October 05, through Fueled By Ramen.

              [EEUU] #PrisonStrike: Huelga de presos del 21 de agosto al 9 de septiembre      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    En abril de 2018 un grupo de presos de Carolina del Sur hizo público un llamamiento para una huelga de presos a escala de todo Estados Unidos, del 21 de agosto al 9 de septiembre: http://prisonstrike.com/. Desde entonces, presos en Delaware, Florida, Louisiana, Missouri y recientemente Carolina del Norte han expresado su apoyo a la iniciativa.  Algunas fuentes cifran en diecisiete los estados de la Unión en que hay presos dispuestos a unirse a esa huelga.

    El colectivo La Llama Dentro - The Fire Inside ha difundido un fanzine en el que explica la convocatoria y en qué se diferencia de otras anteriores que también se convocaron bajo el lema #PrisonStrike.

    Para este mes de agosto confiamos en que se desencadene un vendaval de resistencia y rebelión que cruzará las prisiones de Estados Unidos. La Voz de los Defensores Presos - Jailhouse Lawyers Speak (JLS), el Comité Para La Organización de los Trabajadores Encarcelados - Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee (IWOC) y otros grupos de dentro y de fuera de las cárceles en todo el país nos hemos unido en otra llamada para la protesta a nivel nacional, que tendrá lugar del 21 de agosto al 9 de septiembre de 2018. Este es el tercer llamamiento en muchos años para una acción contra las cárceles a nivel de todo el país, y pensamos que resultará el más masivo e impactante.

    Busque la abolición o la reforma, la excarcelación o el cambio de políticas, la lucha contra el encarcelamiento masivo made in Usa ha avanzado cuando ha consistido en acción directa dentro de las cárceles. En los últimos años la coordinación a nivel nacional ha niquelado el movimiento de resistencia de los presos. Un gran número de personas que en la actualidad se hallan en prisión se han movilizado en respuesta a distintos llamamientos, a pesar de las obstáculos para las comunicaciones y el gran riesgo de represalias. Este año el llamamiento ha tenido una gran difusión y ha encontrado receptividad en las redes externas de apoyo. Ignorarlo o no tomarlo en serio significaría dejar la orientación del movimiento contra la encarcelación masiva en manos diferentes de las de quienes lo sufren inmediata y directamente.

     

    La Llama Dentro fue inspirado por la huelga nacional del 9 de septiembre de 2016. Somos un proyecto para el desarrollo de estrategias, para aglutinar y hacer circular reflexiones, análisis y propuestas de mejora en las acciones de los presos en rebeldía y sus apoyos.  Damos un apoyo sin reservas al actual llamamiento, y esto no debería sorprender, aunque no lo hagamos por rutina o habito. Todas y todos han de entender que creemos que en agosto de 2018 prenderemos la mecha de un cambio de mundo masivo y transformador.

    Esta vez el llamamiento ha provenido de La Voz de los Defensores Presos (JLS), un colectivo de presos que proporcionan asistencia legal y apoyo a otros presos. Mientras escribimos ya son diecisiete los estados de la Unión en los que presos en rebeldía se han comprometido a participar.

    JLS se había planteado en un primer momento aplazar el llamamiento hasta el próximo verano, pero los letales levantamientos del penal de Lee en Carolina del Sur, que costaron la vida de siete presos, les hicieron notar la urgencia de una acción colectiva que ponga el foco de la lucha en la degradación, opresión y tortura inherente al sistema penal, en vez de en el enfrentamiento entre presos amplificado con sensacionalismo por los medios de comunicación y las instituciones penitenciarias.

    Las fechas elegidas por JLS tienen un significado histórico, pero también se eligen dentro de una evolución estratégica. El 21 de agosto de 1971 George Jackson fue asesinado por los guardianes de la cárcel de San Quintín, suscitando una respuesta de los presos de todo el país que culminó en la toma de control de Attica, de triste memoria, el 9 de septiembre. Este año, los presos en rebeldía usarán las mismas fechas como referencia de una protesta sostenida y transformadora.

    Diecinueve días de rechazo a incorporarse a puestos de trabajo para el penal o el Estado, de sentadas, de encierros, son días que le pueden salir caros al sistema carcelario, tanto en dinero como en legitimidad.  Cubrir durante diecinueve días el trabajo que normalmente hacen los presos puede costar millones, sin mencionar el coste de reparar los daños y combatir las acciones. Esta acción puede ser la bancarrota no ya del sistema penal, sino del presupuesto estatal. Exponerse a represalias y llamar la atención sobre las horrendas condiciones rutinarias de las cárceles también puede corroer la legitimación pública del sistema penal. Al terminar el periodo de protestas, cualquier gobierno que las padezca probablemente hará concesiones sustantivas respecto a las reclamaciones de los presos y tendrá una actitud abierta hacia reformas que reduzcan los daños, hacia alternativas y cambios de política. Esta es la manera en que la acción directa desde el interior hace avanzar rápidamente  cualquiera de los muchos frentes de la lucha contra el encarcelamiento masivo y por su abolición definitiva.

    Alimentar el fuego, avivar las llamas.

    Un mes después de que los hechos de Lee llevasen a JLS a lanzar su llamamiento, cuatro facciones de una cárcel de Missouri firmaron una  tregua y pasaron la acción contra la cárcel. Llevaron a cabo una sentada que pronto evolucionó hacia hacerse con una elevadora y penetrar con ella en una factoría de la cárcel con la extensión de dos campos de fútbol. Allí destrozaron todas las máquinas con las que normalmente se les fuerza a trabajar. La conexión con el llamamiento de JLS se hizó explícita mediante grafittis en las paredes de la cárcel con la leyenda "21 de agosto" y con un comunicado que decía "animamos a todos en toda la nación a unirse a nosotros el 21 de agosto, a hacer más sentadas para lograr, con esto, la paz...". En Angola, un antiguo barracón de esclavos convertido en cárcel en Louisiana, los presos también se comprometieron en una huelga masiva.

    El 19 de junio presos de Texas hicieron un llamamiento al apoyo desde el exterior, requiriendo "actividades de amplio espectro dirigidas a presionar al sistema penal y a construir un apoyo comunitario que ponga fin a la encarcelación masiva". Este llamamiento recuerda al del Free Alabama Movement para realizar concentraciones frente a McDonald's en marzo del 2015 o a la Marcha de Millones de agosto de 2017. La puesta en marcha y la visibilidad de movilizaciones en el exterior resulta esencial para las decisiones tácticas y las opciones de participación de los presos en rebeldía.

    Estos eventos en Missouri, Angola, Texas y otras localidades van en paralelo con los que precedieron a la huelga de presos del 9 de septiembre de 2016.  A principios de marzo de aquel año hubo levantamientos en el penal Holman de Alabama, y en abril una huelga en las cárceles de Texas. Estos hechos resaltaron el llamamiento nacional a la acción que tuvo como consecuencia la mayor huelga de presos de la historia de EEUU y la primera organizada a escala nacional, con intensa participación a ambos lados de los muros desde Florida a Michigan y Oregon.

    Lecciones del 2016 y del 2017.

    Entre septiembre de 2016 y la actualidad se han producido numerosos intentos de repetir y extender acciones de protesta a nivel nacional, que han tenido un éxito limitado por diversas razones. La más destacable, la represión continuada del Estado contra los presos en rebeldía y los líderes encarcelados, pero también el ascenso de Trump y la lucha contra la extrema derecha, que han tenido un efecto de eclipse sobre otras luchas y reducido nuestra base de apoyo externo. A pesar de estos factores, la convocatoria de la Marcha de Millones en agosto del 2017 llevó a los responsables de las cárceles de Florida y Carolina del Sur a un bloqueo preventivo que impactó sobre 121.000 presos, lo que dobla las cifras de la huelga de 2016. El suceso no obtuvo mucha atención a nivel nacional  ya que afectó sólo a dos estados; no está claro que habría ocurrido si no se hubiera dado el bloqueo, y además coincidió con los mortiferos hechos de Charlottesville.  Los llamamientos de Black Lives Matter en solidaridad con lo que ocurría en Charlottesville y la masiva acción antifascista en Boston obtuvieron de los medios la atención para que Millones por Prisioneros había sido diseñada.

    Hay otros importantes aspectos de este llamamiento para 2018 que lo hacen diferente de la convocatoria de 2016. Aquel año fue frustrante para los presos tanto el no saber hasta cuándo deberían mantener la huelga como el tener que luchar por concretar sus propuestas locales. Para corregir esto,  los organizadores de la huelga han planteado demandas de nivel nacional, así como una temporalización. La mayoría de las peticiones no son algo que se pueda implementar desde la dirección de las cárceles, sino más bien demandas de profundos cambios legales y culturales. No debemos pensar en ellas como metas de negociación con los responsables penitenciarios a sacar adelante estado por estado, sino más bien en demandas dirigidas por los presos en rebeldía hacia el sistema de plantaciones de la Amérikkka racista.

    Como llamada a la acción, esta de 2018 tiene más claridad y orientación que la ambigua de septiembre de 2016. La meta no es aguantar hasta ganar una negociación con las instituciones penitenciarias, sino mantener durante 16 días la cuestión en la atención y la agenda políticas del país. JLS también da importancia a que los presos dejen de luchar unos con otros, como en el mortífero motín de Lee,  centrando sus energías en luchar contra lo establecido.
     

    El llamamiento de La Voz de los Defensores Presos se ha replicado en numerosas páginas de Internet, incluida la de IWOC, comité de International Workers of the World para unir a los presos en lucha contra la esclavitud a las que se les somete en las cárceles de EEUU al amparo de la decimotercera enmienda de la Constitución.

    Mujeres y hombres bajo privación de libertad en cárceles de toda la nación declaran una huelga de presos a escala de todo Estados Unidos en respuesta a los disturbios en la prisión de máxima seguridad Lee Correctional Institution, de Carolina del Sur. Siete camaradas perdieron allí sus vidas durante un amotinamiento sin sentido que podría haberse evitado si las prisiones no estuvieran masificadas por  la avaricia productora de encarcelación masiva y si en la ideología punitiva de nuestro país no estuviese totalmente ausente el respeto por la vida humana. Estas personas solicitan condiciones dignas de vida, acceso a la rehabilitación, una reforma del sistema judicial y el fin de la esclavitud que subsiste en la actualidad.

    Éstas son las demandas nacionales de presos y presas en las cárceles federales y estatales y en los centros para emigrantes.

    1. Mejoras inmediatas en las condiciones de las cárceles y políticias penitenciarias que reconozcan la humanidad de presos  y presas.
    2. Fin de la esclavitud en las cárceles. Todas las personas presas en cualquier lugar de detención bajo la jurisdicción de los  EEUU deben de recibir los salarios normales en su Estado o territorio por su jornada laboral.
    3. Rescisión de The Prison Litigation Reform Act, poniendo a disposición de las personas presas un canal adecuado para señalar abusos y violaciones contra sus derechos.
    4. La Truth in Sentencing Act y la Sentencing Reform Act deben ser retiradas para que las personas presas tengan una posibilidad de rehabilitación y libertad bajo palabra. Nadie debe ser sentenciado a encarcelamiento hasta la muerte o cumplir una sentencia sin posibilidad de libertad bajo palabra.
    5. Poner punto final a la imputación desproporcionada de negros e hispanos, a la desproporción en sentencias contra negros e hispanos, a la denegación de libertad condicional para negros e hispanos. No debe negarse la libertad provisional a las personas negras cuando la víctima es de raza blanca, un problema frecuente en los estados sureños.
    6. Poner punto final a las leyes racistas que penalizan la pertenencia a una banda, dirigidas contra las personas negras e hispanas.
    7. Ninguna persona presa ha de ser rechazada en los programas de rehabilitación por estar clasificada como delincuente violento.
    8. Las prisiones estatales deben recibir fondos destinados específicamente a ofrecer más servicios de rehabilitación.
    9. Los programas de becas deben retornar a todos los estados y territorios de Estados Unidos.
    10. El derecho a voto de todos los reclusos que cumplen sentencias, están en prisión provisional y de los así llamados ex-delincuentes deben ser tenidos en cuenta. Se pide representación. Todas las voces cuentan.
       

       

    ¡Nos comprometemos a extender esta huelga a todas las cárceles de Améri$$$a! Desde el 21 de agosto y hasta el 9 de septiembre de 2018, presas y presos de toda la nación pueden hacer huelga de las siguientes maneras:

    - Huelga laboral. - Los presos no acudirán a los puestos de trabajo que tengan asignados. En cada penitenciaria se determinará hasta dónde se llegará con esta huelga. Algunas de estas huelgas pueden realizarse en base a demandas para mejorar las condiciones y reducir los daños de la prisión.

    - Sentadas. - En algunas cárceles, presas y presos pueden comprometerse en sentadas pacíficas de protesta.

    - Boicots. - Todos los ingresos deben interrumpirse. Instamos a que los que están fuera no cubran la factura de los de dentro. Presas y presos te informarán de si ellos participan de este boicot.

    - Huelga de hambre. - Presas y presos pueden renunciar a comer.

    Apoyamos el llamamiento del Free Alabama Movement hacia una campaña de "Redistribuir el dolor 2018" -para poner en bancarrota al sistema-, tal como la ha asumido  Bennu Hannibal Ra - Sun, antes conocido como Melvin Ray. Los principios de la campaña se describen aquí: https://redistributethepain.wordpress.com/

    Son varios los presos que se han hecho portavoces de la iniciativa, incluyendo demandas específicas vinculadas a la situación local. Así, Joseph "Shine White" Stewart realizó el siguiente llamamiento desde una cárcel de Carolina del Norte el pasado 16 de julio.

    Este es un llamamiento a tomar una posición de resistencia contra el ciclo de opresión y represión a partir del 21 de agosto. Hemos de rechazar cualquier tarea de mantenimiento, barbería, lavandería o cocina hasta que nuestras exigencias sean tomadas en cuenta. Es un llamamiento para los que quieran cambiar estas condiciones de vida tan ingratas mediante demandas como las siguientes:

    1. Todos los presos con problemas de salud mental que hayan estado en confinamiento solitario más de treinta días han de ser liberados inmediatamente.
    2. Todas las formas de confinamiento solitario a largo plazo han de ser anuladas para toda la comunidad de presos de Carolina del Norte.
    3. Hay que abolir la 85% Act para toda la comunidad de presos de Carolina de Norte. Ningún ser humano puede ser condenado a cárcel hasta morir o cumplir una sentencia sin posibilidad de libertad condicional.
    4. Reestablecer la oportunidad de libertad condicional para toda la comunidad de presos de Carolina del Norte.
    5. Rectificar la estructura de la política de Grupos de Riesgo para la Seguridad (SRG) y los requisitos para ser clasificado en un SRG. Las restricciones que implican son en algunos casos inhumanas. Alguien bajo un perfil SRG sólo puede recibir visitas de su familia directa. ¡Algo que excluye a la madre o el padre de sus hijos! Muchos de los clasificados en SRG no podemos recibir la visita de nuestros hijos. La clasificación también supone restricción en el acceso a empleos o estudios en los que podríamos aprovechar nuestro tiempo.
    6. Anular la fianza de diez dólares por infracciones. Por cada parte que recibimos, se nos deducen diez dólares de nuestras cuentas que pasan al patrimonio del Estado. Anualmente esto supone ingresos de un millón de dólares para el Estado,
    7. Restaurar los programas educacionales y de rehabilitación, así como ayudas para obtener un empleo cuando estemos libres, para que no volvamos a caer en el ciclo del sistema.
    8. Hacer que las cárceles de Carolina del Norte tengan contratos tanto como J. Pay como con Union Suply, ofreciendo así opciones como las de correo electrónico, visita virtual, MP3 y descarga de música.

    Camaradas, es un hecho contundente que a lo largo de la historia las movilizaciones unitarias han dado lugar a logros. Las huelgas de hambre masivas de 2010 en California, el levantamiento del año pasado en las instalaciones Vaughn de Delaware... Incluso los cinco de Lucasville han dado lugar a mejoras para todos los presos de Ohio con sus actos de solidaridad. ¡Cinco personas solas!  Actuamos a veces como si en Carolina del Norte no hubiera nacido ningún revolucionario firme: ¡Nunca olvidemos al camarada Robert F. Williams, al que el KKK tuvo que tomar en cuenta!

    Como media, a un cocinero le pagan 9.50 dólares a la hora, por el mismo trabajo por el que un preso recibe 45 céntimos al día.  Ni siquiera el 2% del salario mínimo. ¿¡Qué mierda es ésta!? Los equipos de mantenimiento o los fontaneros cobran entre 14 y 20 dólares por hora, mientras que nosotros podemos pasar todo un día en aguas fecales por un dólar. ¡Camaradas, nos esclavizan a cambio de una sopa y un bollo! Te esclavizan a tiempo completo para que financies tu encarcelamiento y el de los demás.

    Me doy cuenta de que muchos de vosotros dependéis de esas pagas míseras porque no tenéis apoyo familiar.  En esos casos es cuando la solidaridad de la comuna de presos resulta efectiva. Los que tenemos ingresos podemos aportar a un fondo común para aquellos que no tienen apoyo del exterior. Mantenerlo no debe recaer sobre uno o dos de nosotros, sino que será responsabilidad de todos el que se consolide.

    El deber de los camaradas conscientes y de los cabecillas de las bandas es abrir el camino y que los camaradas lleguen a conocer sus derechos. Si uno no es consciente de sus derechos de los que está siendo privado el deseo de resistencia llega al mínimo. El síndrome de Willie Lynch está profundamente instalado en la mayoría de los presos de Carolina del Norte. La cura de este síndrome de envidia, desconfianza y miedo continuo  está en la solidaridad y en la conciencia revolucionaria.

    En cada una de estas plantaciones rodeadas de alambre de espino en Carolina del Norte ha de haber masas deseosas de dejar claras las cosas y de resistir, comenzando el 21 de agosto y hasta que las demandas se tengan en cuenta - no con promesas, sino con actos. Quienes tengan posición de liderazgo han de plantarse ante la ley y exigir a sus subordinados que se adhieran a este llamamiento a la resistencia. Si alguno no tiene un puesto de trabajo al que rechazar incorporarse, ha de buscar otra forma de resistencia que pueda afectar al ciclo diario del confinamiento y afecte a los costes de la cárcel. Huelgas de hambre, no salir al recuento... El gobernador Roy Cooper ha de sentir que esos superavit presupuestarios de los que se jacta se pueden secar en un mes, debido a que tendrá que contratar los servicios que hacemos gratis.

    La mayoría de los cabecillas me conocéis, y yo os conozco a vosotros. Todos sabemos, todos somos conscientes de lo que hay que hacer, así que hagámoslo. Somos la causa de nuestro propio estancamiento. Una vez  el conjunto de la prisión sea testigo del compromiso de la jerarquía, entonces no habrá límite que no podamos superar. Estamos limitados a lo que nos hemos limitado. Imposible es nada, nada es imposible.

    ¡Atrévete a luchar, atrévete a ganar!

    ¡Hasta que cada celda esté vacía!

    Mientras los organizadores de todo el país dan los pasos necesarios para preparar la huelga de presos del 21 de agosto, los empleados  y administradores del sistema penal también se preparan para responder. En las últimas semanas se ha podido ver lo que parece una campaña coordinada de represión contra figuras prominentes asociadas a la huelga de 2016: Imam Siddique Abdullah Hasan, Kevin Rashid Johnson, Keith Malik Washington,  Jason Renard Walker, son algunos de los nombres sometidos a medidas arbitrarias de aislamiento y dispersión. Todos ellos están vinculados a IWOC o al Nuevo Partido Pantera Negra, otro de los grupos que está siendo central en la organización de la nueva huelga y que es tratado como “banda criminal” por muchos funcionarios de prisiones.

    La vinculación de la huelga con la lucha por la dignidad negra  y su memoria está presente en esta reactivación de los Pantera Negra, en las fechas escogidas o en el rótulo “Redistribute the Pain”, una alusión al último discurso de Martin Luther King, pronunciado un día antes de su asesinato por el Estado. El éxito de la huelga equivaldría, en cierto sentido, al fracaso de la impunidad de quienes exterminaron el movimiento negro de liberación entre los sesenta y los setenta.

    Aunque todo esto ya ha estado presente en las huelgas convocadas a partir de 2016, hay también elementos nuevos. Algunos atañen a la seguridad: una intensa preparación de la cobertura legal -que se puede observar en el fanzine de Fire Inside- o un esfuerzo por afinar técnicas de respuesta desde el exterior, como las alertas telefónicas -Phone Zap- que ya han revelado su utilidad ante casos anteriores de represalias contra presos en rebeldía, pero que ahora se quieren sistematizar y generalizar.

    Otro elemento que se ha podido ver en varios escritos es la insistencia en ligar la huelga a la superación de las divisiones de los presos plasmadas en los diversos clanes y bandas en el interior de la cárcel. Y un elemento más es cierta contextualización de la lucha contra la esclavitud en prisión que fue central en las huelgas anteriores. Sigue la denuncia del trabajo esclavo consentido y fomentado desde la constitución de EEUU -algo por otro lado denunciado incluso desde series de TV-. Pero ya no se da tanta importancia al efecto que la huelga pueda tener en los beneficios de las empresas privadas que se valen de esa esclavitud, un objetivo que recibió algunas críticas en ocasiones anteriores. Cobra más peso la denuncia de los beneficios sociales que se seguirían de dar otros fines al gasto en represión -de ahí la referencia a programas educativos en general-. Aunque las condiciones de vida en las cárceles sean infames, la cifra invertida por cada preso -y en conjunto por la enorme proporción de presos respecto al total de la población USA- es considerable; la huelga pretende ser entonces una llamada de atención sobre los dividendos de un cambio de prioridades sociales.

    Todo ello puede verse reflejado en el siguiente artículo escrito desde IWOC Twin Cities, en Minnesota.

    Este 18 de julio se produjo el primer asesinato de un empleado de prisiones en toda la historia de Minnesota.  El clamor unánime de todo el departamento estatal de instituciones penitenciarias es la necesidad de incrementar su presupuesto, que actualmente es de mil doscientos millones de dólares. Pero lo que nosotros necesitamos es un enfoque nuevo que cambie las cárceles de Minnesota. Hay que dejar de inyectar dinero en una institución violenta que no corrige a nadie. Hay que liberar a nuestra gente, y destinar recursos a la reincorporación y a rehabilitación.

    La violencia que recorre las cárceles de Minnesota no es una sorpresa para quienes tenemos contacto con ellas: es algo inevitable teniendo en cuenta cómo se comporta el sistema mismo.

    - La situación de las cárceles empeora progresivamente. Los servicios de rehabilitación no tienen presencia en el día a día, mientras que la creciente criminalización de nuestras comunidades determina una crisis masiva. Nuestra gente muere. Entre el año 2000 y el 2014, 230 presos en minesota fueron asesinados, un 75% por negligencias médicas. Todo ello, a pesar de que el gasto represivo por persona y año es de 41.366 dólares.

    - Los empleados de prisiones en Minnesota son racistas y abusadores. El día antes del asesinato del guardian de Stillwater, un preso informó de que esta persona decía a todo el mundo que “los guardianes podemos hacerte lo que queremos, mientras que tú no puedes hacer nada contra nosotros”.

    - Está bien documentado, incluso por el propio departamento de Instituciones Penitenciarias, que los lazos comunitarios reducen la reincidencia. A pesar de ello, el propio departamento restringe las comunicaciones, gestiona miserablemente las visitas y reprime los intentos de tender puentes entre los presos y la comunidad. Los resultados son los esperables: un 48% de las personas en libertad condicional terminan volviendo a la cárcel, y un impactante 88 % de estos lo hace por violaciones técnicas de las condiciones de libertad, no por nuevos crímenes.

    Hay una solución fácil para toda esta violencia: liberar a nuestra gente. En lugar de poner más dinero en la cárcel, hay que liberar a todos los presos por violaciones de la burocracia o por crímenes sin violencia, al menos el 40 % de los reclusos. Los recursos estarán mejor dedicados a reinserción y rehabilitación, es decir, a dar oportunidades de mejoras en la vida de todos.

    Ninguna mejora será posible mientras los presos no tengan un poder real y conexiones comunitarias. Debe permitírseles tener sus sindicatos y que se representen a sí mismos. Las visitas de grupos comunitarios y de familiares deben ser bienvenidas. Los horarios de visita deben aumentar, y la intervención de la correspondencia no debe repetirse nunca  más.

    La huelga de presos convocada para el 21 de agosto se dirige contra unas condiciones inhumanas confirmadas por el status de los presos como esclavos, amparado por la decimotercera enmienda de la Constitución. ¿Las cárceles de prisiones buscarán nuevos sistemas para regular la violencia mortífera entre los esclavos y sus carceleros? ¿O trataremos a los humanos como humanos, detendremos la encarcelación sin sentido, y destinaremos recursos a la rehabilitación y la comunidad? La esclavitud debe llegar a su fin, nuestra gente debe ser libre.

    De cara a la coordinación de esfuerzos, IWOC ha lanzado diversas directrices dirigidas a sus miembros.

    Activistas, colectivos y redes en el interior de las cárceles de Estados Unidos han acordado hacer un llamamiento a una Huelga Nacional de Presos desde el 21 de agosto al 9 de septiembre de 2018.  Plantean una serie de reivindicaciones y de orientaciones para quienes quieran apoyarles desde el exterior.

    Nosotros, el Comité para la Organización de Trabajadores Encarcelados (IWOC) de los Trabajadores Industriales del Mundo (IWW) hemos recibido su petición de apoyo, y la consideramos que coincide por completo con nuestro trabajo efectivo y con todos los puntos de nuestra declaración de intenciones.

    Estamos dispuestos a respaldar la huelga, prestándole nuestro apoyo y, sobre todo, asumiendo tareas de solidaridad.

    Nosotros, como órgano de escala nacional de la red IWOC, animamos enérgicamente a todas sus secciones y miembros en general a desplegar todas sus capacidades en el apoyo de la huelga según su mejor criterio.

    La evolución de la huelga conllevará una evolución de las tareas, y por tanto necesitaremos ratificar posteriormente líneas de trabajo, con lo que esta moción sólo ha de ser vista como un marco y un punto de partida. Vendrán después nuevas mociones adaptadas a lo que la práctica demande y enseñe. En el momento actual nos encontramos ante la siguiente lista de tareas:

    La evolución de la huelga conllevará una evolución de las tareas, y por tanto necesitaremos ratificar posteriormente líneas de trabajo, con lo que esta moción sólo ha de ser vista como un marco y un punto de partida. Vendrán después nuevas mociones adaptadas a lo que la práctica demande y enseñe. En el momento actual nos encontramos ante la siguiente lista de tareas:

    1. Inscripción inmediata en la lista de organizaciones que respaldan la huelga, así como promoción del respaldo por parte de otras organizaciones.

    2. Difundir la existencia de la huelga y sus peticiones en el exterior lo mejor y más responsablemente que se pueda, de manera que nuestros miembros en el interior y contactos puedan tomar decisiones informadas sobre su posición y posibles acciones.

    3. Medios de comunicación.

    a. Comité nacional de medios: Con la asistencia y la coordinación de los encargados de medios del grupo de asistencia legal entre presos Jailhouse Lawyers Speak y de Millions for Prisioners, elaborar protocolos para llevar a cabo de manera exhaustiva comunicados de prensa, estrategias mediáticas, diseminación de contenidos en las redes sociales y elaboración de contenidos originales para todos los medios disponibles.

    b. A nivel local: Crear, compartir y publicar materiales de concienciación y agitación en todos los medios disponibles.

    c. Tener claro si hay en los medios personas de confianza a las que se pueda convocar regional o nacionalmente para tratar de la huelga en reuniones o ruedas de presa -de acuerdo con el protocolo de los presos para peticiones a los medios-.

    4. Anti-represión.

    a. Desde ahora construir redes de apoyo en el exterior comprometidas con llamadas telefónicas en cascada, manifiestaciones y cualquier tipo de campaña de presión para combatir la represión y las represalias contra los presos. La represión es completamente previsible y los grupos de presos ya están haciendo peticiones de apoyo.

    b. Dar a conocer a todos los grupos y miembros de IWOC, a todos los grupos solidarios y al público en general las tácticas y la profundidad de las represalias que se adoptan contra los presos.
     

    Importantes convocatorias contra la extrema derecha han hecho suyo el llamamiento por la abolición del encarcelamiento masivo y la solidaridad internacional con este nuevo #PrisonStrike también se está empezando a manifestar. El calendario de convocatorias de apoyo a este lado de los muros empieza a tomar forma:

    8 de agosto

    New York: Un torrente de cartas del Movimiento Revolucionario Abolicionista

    9 de agosto

    Minneapolis: Noche de información y taller de pancartas

    11 de agosto

    New York: Velada de informaciones y escritura de cartas

    16 de agosto

    Minneapolis: Velada de cartas a los presos

    21 de agosto

    Los Angeles: Cacerolada

    New York: Cacerolada

    23 de agosto

    Lansing: Marcha

    25 de agosto

    Bay Area: Movilización en San Quintín

    Michigan: Protesta en la cárcel estatal de Indiana

    Para presentar este calendario, la redacción del periódico  ‘It’s Going Down’ escribe:  “La huelga de presos a lo largo de todo EEUU llegará el 21 de agosto pisando los talones de las inspiradoras acciones contra los centros de internamiento de emigrantes y las manifestaciones antifascistas previstas para las primeras semanas de agosto. Estas luchas están conectadas entre sí, pero por encima de esto, nuestro éxito en cualquiera de ellas dependerá de unir fuerzas entre unas y otras y más allá”.

    • 1865 - RHP Billy Gumbert was born on Frankstown Avenue in Pittsburgh’s East End. He played for the Alleghenys in 1890 and the Pirates in 1892, with a pitching line of 7-8, 3.93 and a .200 BA (he also played a little OF and 1B). Per John Dreker of Pirates Prospects, Billy was only available for home games because he owned & operated a business in Pittsburgh. His brother, Ad Gumbert, was also a major leaguer twirler and pitched for the Bucs from 1893-94. 
    Denny Lyons (photo via NY Public Library)
    • 1893 - Pittsburgh swept a DH from the Chicago Colts 17-10 and 9-8 at Exposition Park. George Van Haltren, Denny Lyons and Joe Sugden (2B & 3B) each had three hits in the opener to give Ad Gumbert the win. In the nitecap, the Colts scored three times in the ninth to go up by four; the Pirates answered with a five spot, keyed by Lyons, who tripled with the bases loaded to tie the game and then scored the winning run. Lyons had six hits on the day. Red Ehret, who went the distance, got the victory. The fans were into the comeback victory; per the Pittsburgh Press “Not at Exposition Park this year has there been such a scone of excitement and enthusiasm...Lyon’s hit (the ninth inning triple in the second game) caused the wildest scene ever seen here for many a day. There were nearly 6,000 people and they all stood up and yelled themselves hoarse. Hats were flying in all directions.” The crowd had been stirred up by Colt manager Cap Anson, who after Chicago took the lead “...indulge(d) in some very jeering talk” per the Press, and then got to enjoy eating his own words as a post-game snack. One final note: parks were not quite so well manicured back in the day. BR Bullpen noted that “Sam Dungan of Pittsburgh start(ed) the (second) game against Chicago by scoring from first base as George Van Haltren's wild throw rolled into a rat hole under the grandstand.” 
    • 1902 - Honus Wagner became the first Pirate to steal second, third and home, against the Boston Beaneaters in an 8-6 loss at the South End Grounds. He did it four times during his career. Other Pirates to swipe a three-pack were Max Carey (2), Kiki Cuyler and Bobby Byrne. 
    • 1903 - RHP Elzie Clise Dudley was born in Graham, North Carolina. He tossed for five years in the majors, putting up a line of 17-33-2/5.03, with his last MLB outing (and only appearance) with the Pirates in 1933, when he gave up five runs on six hits and a walk in ⅓ IP against Boston. He’s noted for two things: As a Pirate, his 135.00 ERA and 21.000 WHIP are franchise records (not in a good way). A better standard was set as a Brooklyn Robin in 1929, when Dudley became the second player (and the first pitcher) to hit a homer on the first pitch thrown to him. 
    Dave Brain 1909-11 American Tobacco
    • 1905 - Second baseman Dave Brain, who hit three triples in a game for St. Louis against the Pirates earlier in the season, repeated the performance against Boston after being traded to Pittsburgh, becoming the only player to triple-triple twice in one season. Pittsburgh defeated the Beaneaters 5-4 in 10 innings at Exposition Park, with Mike Lynch getting the win in relief of Sam Leever. Brain, who went 4-for-5, had the game winning knock, a single to score Tommy Leach. Davy had quite the day; the Pittsburgh Gazette wrote “Not only did Brain bat well, but he fielded in fine style, and some of the plays made by him were decidedly sensational.” 1905 was his only year with Pittsburgh; he hit .257 as a 3B/SS before being flipped to Boston as part of the Vic Willis trade. 
    • 1922 - The Pirates lined, drilled, dribbled and blooped a major league record 46 hits during a doubleheader sweep against the Phillies at Shibe Park. Bucco SS Rabbit Maranville made a record 13 plate appearances during the day. The team had 27 knocks, a franchise record, in their 19-8 rout in the opener. Reb Russell went 5-for-5 with a homer, two doubles, five runs and seven RBI while Cotton Tierney had four hits, scored five runs and drove in five. Tierney went 4-for-5 in the nitecap with four RBI and Russell doubled three times as the Bucs banged out 19 hits in a 7-3 brooming. Tierney and Russell each recorded eight hits during the twin bill. 
    • 1938 - A federal court ruled that KQV Radio could not broadcast games without the permission of the Pirates, who had sold game rights to KDKA/WWSW. The sly KQV broadcasters perched on Oakland rooftops, using that as their play-by-play roost and thus pirating the Pirates contests. The decision etched in stone that the controlling rights of game coverage belonged to the teams, a huge part of the clubs’ ka-ching today.

    Raiders WR struggling to learn new offense

    Former Raiders wide receiver James Jones says current Raiders wide receiver Martavis Bryant is having a rough training camp. Jones said on NFL Network that he talked to Raiders offensive coordinator Greg Olson, and Olson told him Bryant hasn’t learned the playbook. "They’ve only got him lining up in one spot to try to slow it down and help him out," Jones said. "They need him to pick it up." (Pro Football Talk)

    FF Today's Take: Sounds like the coaching staff in Oakland is trying to light a fire under Bryant and get him motivated to be the extraordinary talent that he is. The Raiders may go through some growing pains as they players learn Gruden's new offense. It's best that fantasy owners keep their expectations in check for Derek Carr and company.

    This was a tightly fought game until Grandal dropped the throw from Turner at the plate allowing a run to score. Why wasn't this recorded as an error on Grandal? He should have caught the ball as the throw was on the money. Oakland goes up by a run and we can't knock in the tying or winning runs because we lack a consistent hitting game. This is the weakness that has to be overcome for us. Chargois is charged with the loss after pitching well due to Grandal's blunder. Good to see Bellinger and Muncy get hits. I like our lineup and the way we are starting to play. We just need to see more consistency with the small ball approach, stealing bases, bunting to advance runners, and not swinging for the bleachers. Get the little things done.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


              Se acaba el tiempo de Bartolo Colón para superar de nuevo a Juan Marichal      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    ARLINGTON, Texas, EE.UU. Bartolo Colón tiene en mente otro objetivo después de convertirse en el pitcher latinoamericano con más triunfos en la historia. “Este año está casi por terminar. Pero hay algo que busco. Juan Marichal tiene más innings que yo. Es lo que falta”, dijo Colón. “Quiero superarlo por los dominicanos”.

    Pero es posible que no haya tiempo suficiente en su 21era temporada en Grandes Ligas para que el derecho de 45 años consiga su objetivo.

    Después de requerir seis intentos para obtener el triunfo 246 de su carrera y finalmente romper un empate con el nicaragüense Dennis Martínez en la cima de la lista de triunfos para un latinoamericano, Colón tendría que trabajar ahora 61 innings y dos tercios más para superar a su compatriota Marichal, miembro del Salón de la Fama, en la otra lista.

    Los Rangers, últimos de su división, solo tienen 46 juegos restantes en el calendario. Colón promedia apenas menos de seis innings en sus 21 inicios, y probablemente no tenga más de nueve aperturas restantes en una rotación de cinco lanzadores en caso de no perderse un solo turno.

    Pero los Rangers evidentemente están pensando a futuro y querrán ver a algunos jóvenes, especialmente una vez que el roster se expanda el 1 de septiembre. Además, la rotación actual es de seis abridores y Colón no volverá a lanzar hasta la próxima semana, a pesar de que el equipo no cuenta con días de descanso.

    Cuando se le preguntó el miércoles si se reduciría la carga de trabajo de Colón en la recta final, el manager Jeff Banister respondió: “Seguimos con la misma rotación que antes”.

    Colón (6-10) permitió cuatro carreras y ocho hits en siete innings en martes para conseguir su histórico triunfo en la victoria de 11-4 sobre los Marineros. El robusto dominicano retiró a 14 de sus últimos 16 enemigos.

    Cuando Colón llegó a 243 triunfos el 6 de junio ante Oakland, empató a Marichal con la mayor cantidad para un lanzador dominicano. El pitcher de los Rangers superó al “Dandy Dominicano” en la lista de victorias con su triunfo del 18 de junio contra Kansas City.

    Marichal, quien lanzó 244 juegos completos en su carrera, trabajó 3.507 innings durante 471 juegos en su trayectoria de 16 campañas.

    Colón tiene 3.445 innings y dos tercios, la mayor cantidad para un pitcher en activo, al igual que en triunfos, después de vencer a los Marineros en su aparición número 560.

    “Lo llamativo de las 246 (victorias), hemos estado hablando de eso toda la mañana, es que hay un par de lanzadores con ciertas posibilidades”, dijo Banister. “Si Bartolo llega a 250, podría ser el último con 250. Es lo más loco de todo”.

    CC Sabathia, el lanzador de 37 años de los Yanquis, tiene 243 victorias en su carrera. Justin Verlander, con 35 años, es tercero entre los lanzadores en activo con 199 victorias. Félix Hernández, el derrotado ante los Rangers la noche del martes, acumula 168 triunfos, la mayor cifra para un venezolano en la historia.


              Robinson Canó avanza en su rehabilitación en liga menor con los Marineros       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    ARLINGTON. El infielder suspendido de los Marineros, Robinson Canó, se fue de 4-1 con una anotada como bateador designado el martes por Triple-A Tacoma, en el segundo partido de rehabilitación del dominicano.

    Después de un día libre el miércoles, Canó jugará cuatro encuentros con Clase-A Everett. El veterano será elegible para reintegrarse al equipo grande de Seattle el próximo martes en Oakland.

    Canó viene cumpliendo una suspensión de 80 juegos debido a una prueba positiva por furosemida, un diurético prohibido por MLB que podría usarse para cubrir el uso de sustancias para aumentar el rendimiento, escribe Greg Johns en MLB.com.,

    Los jugadores suspendidos pueden jugar a nivel de liga menor en los últimos 14 días de sus sanciones, con el fin de prepararse para el regreso a Grandes Ligas. Canó lo está haciendo para recuprar el ritmo en el plato y también para practicar nuevas posiciones defensivas fuera de la segunda base.

    Canó se fue de 7-2 con dos sencillos y una base por bolas en sus dos choques con Triple-A Tacoma.

    Con Dee Gordon establecido como intermedista de los Marineros ante la ausencia de Canó, el quisqueyano jugó en la primera almohadilla el lunes. Lo más probable es que el ocho veces convocado al Juego de Estrellas juegue en la segunda y la tercera en Everett.

    “Lo más difícil es cambiar de posición en medio de la temporada, sobre todo una posición que nunca has jugado”, dijo Canó en Tacoma. “Pero no se trata de Robinson Canó. Se trata del equipo, cómo puedo subir y cómo puedo ayudarlo a ganar y alcanzar los playoffs”.

    Se espera que Seattle incluya a Canó en su lineup todos los días, compartiendo tiempo en la primera con Ryon Healy, en la segunda con Gordon, en la tercera con Kyle Seager y en el puesto de bateador designado con su compatriota Nelson Cruz.

    “Seremos creativos”, dijo el manager de los Marineros, Scott Servais. “Aún no tengo la fórmula mágica. Estamos viendo diferentes opciones y lidiaremos con eso cuando (Canó) llegue”.

              One man’s idea to rid the ocean of drifting plastic      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    #source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

    In the classic 1967 film “The Graduate” a house guest tells a drifting Dustin Hoffman he has one word to say to him: “Plastics.” The guest says they have a great future.

    They did. And they do. But the downside to plastics is that they stick around a very long time. And given too many humans’ propensity to simply discard plastic bottles and the like instead of recycling, plastic has become a serious environmental problem, especially at sea.

    Ocean currents have herded immense campuses of floating plastics into massive artificial islands where the debris is slow to degrade and ensnares wild turtles, whales, dolphins, seals and other sea life. A 23-year-old Dutch college student named Boyan Slat was appalled by the floating plastic messes he encountered diving in Greece.

    Now, after years of designing, fundraising and construction, Slat’s Ocean Cleanup Project is almost finished in Oakland, Calif. Next month he’ll set sail — well, actually, it’ll be dragged — out in the Pacific to one of the large plastic masses.

    There, the idea is 2,000-feet of four-foot-diameter closed, floating tubes will drift passively and slowly in a U-shape through the plastic mess. The tubes suspend nine-feet of net skirting below intended to allow sea life to pass through but to herd large volumes of floating debris to the middle for removal and recycling on land.

    USAToday has photos of Slat’s expensive brainchild, which gained foundation funding.

    The project, which is illuminated by solar warning lights, is untried and like any new idea, has also netted a variety of skeptics eager to detail potential problems. The device could break apart in storms. It will not collect sunken debris.

    Also, there’s a large contingent of environmentalists that says the focus should be preventing new debris. Think, for instance, municipal bans on plastic straws.

    Richard Thompson is head of the International Marine Litter Research Unit at Britain’s University of Plymouth. He said:

    If we consider cleanup to be a center stage solution, then we accept it is OK to contaminate the oceans and our children and our children’s children will continue to clean up the mess.

    But there’s this: The loose campaign to stop the pollution of roadside litter really began in the 1950s with Americans’ postwar love affair with cars and travel on modern highways and Interstates. Now, there are hefty fines for littering and volunteer groups and municipal prison crews that clean roadsides.

    But in those days, it was simply radio and TV appeals for manners, not to toss garbage from your car. Back then, my father paid me 25 cents an hour to pick up roadside debris near our rural home, using a nail in the end of a long stick. I can report that people threw away a lot of strange stuff.

    It occurs to me now that if we’d postponed cleaning-up until Americans were trained not to litter, no vehicle could today make it through 55 years of accumulated debris on and along roads.

    So, good luck to Boyan Slat. Imagine the bottle-deposit money he’ll reap.

    BayTech Charter School Under Investigation | East Bay Express

    BayTech Charter School Under Investigation 
    The principal suddenly resigned after the school's board accused him of fraud, but the controversy raises questions about the school's links to the Gülen movement.


    Just before the end of the last school year, the principal of Oakland's Bay Area Technology School, Hayri Hatipoglu, suddenly resigned. At least four other senior staff and two of the charter school's five board members also abruptly quit. As a result, the organization was thrown into chaos. And then Hatipoglu disappeared. According to several sources, he left the country with his family for Australia, where he is a citizen.
    Afterwards, the Oakland Unified School District, which is responsible for overseeing the BayTech charter school, opened an investigation. BayTech's three remaining board members also hired an independent party to carry out their own internal review.
    While OUSD and BayTech have both attempted to keep the mini-crisis under wraps, the Express has learned that BayTech's three remaining board members are accusing Hatipoglu of defrauding the school. They allege that Hatipoglu surreptitiously changed his employment contract to provide himself with three years' worth of severance pay totaling about $450,000, an unusually large sum for a small school with an annual budget of approximately $3 million. His previous contract provided for only six months of severance pay, a standard in the education sector.

    "We believe he changed his contract," said BayTech board member Fatih Dagdelen in a recent interview. "According to his contract, he'd get paid a six-months salary if he resigned, but all of a sudden his contract said he'd get paid two-and-a-half years further."
    As to why Hatipoglu resigned, Dagdelen declined to say, but he added, "we have a lot of evidence and believe there's a fraud."
    Hatipoglu has countered that he did nothing wrong. Instead, he alleges that Dagdelen and two other BayTech board members are part of a "shady network" trying to "take over" the school.
    In an unusual and unsolicited email to the Express sent on June 28, Hatipoglu wrote that the school's Turkish board members conspired to punish him for his decision to break ties with a Southern California-based nonprofit. The nonprofit, Accord Institute, happens to be controlled by the followers of a powerful Turkish imam who leads a global Islamic political force called the Gülen movement.
    Founded in the 1970s by the religious leader Fethullah Gülen, the Gülen movement is an Islamic-inspired social and political force that Continue reading: BayTech Charter School Under Investigation | East Bay Express

              In Oakland, More Data Hasn't Meant Less Racial Disparity During Police Stops      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    For more than 15 years, Oakland's police department has been under federal oversight following a police abuse and racial profiling scandal. As part of a negotiated settlement in 2003, the city agreed to work toward sweeping police reforms. The Riders Settlement mandated ongoing monitoring of the department, including the collection of data on police stops and an end to discriminatory policing. But there's mounting frustration that federal oversight and better data collection have not led to real change, despite a massive price tag. For the past few years, Stanford University researchers have helped the Oakland Police Department analyze the data collected from every police stop and arrest. Studies carried out by the Stanford team show that Oakland officers are still far more likely to stop, search and handcuff black people than white people during a traffic or pedestrian stop. Analysis of bodycam footage also showed that, during traffic stops, officers spoke less respectfully to black

    As legalization of recreational and medical marijuana continues to expand, police across the country are more concerned than ever about stoned drivers taking to the nation's roads and freeways, endangering lives. With few accurate roadside tools to detect pot impairment, police today have to rely largely on field sobriety tests developed to fight drunk driving or old-fashioned observation, which can be foiled with Visine or breath mints. That has left police, courts, public health advocates and recreational marijuana users themselves frustrated. Nine states and the District of Columbia have legalized recreational marijuana and 30 states and D.C. have legalized medical pot. Now one California company claims it has made a major breakthrough in creating what some thought of as a unicorn: a marijuana breathalyzer. "We are trying to make the establishment of impairment around marijuana rational and to balance fairness and safety," says Hound Labs CEO Mike Lynn in his downtown Oakland, Calif

I'm bummed we did not get another starter at the deadline. I am excited that Zunino had a 2 dinger day. I feel blessed we are 15 games over .500 and only a couple games out of the wildcard even though the As are roughly 40-0 since the all star break. I think we might be racing the Yankees at this point. There is some serious voodoo in Oakland atm.

              Seahawks expected to start 15 new players in preseason opener against Indianapolis Colts      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    RENTON, Washington – Preseason openers for Pete Carroll’s Seahawks have been mostly ho-hum, perfunctory exhibitions. The veteran starters already know the game-day routine, from wake-up through kickoff. They play a series or two, reaffirm why they’ve been starters all these years, then watch the younger, new guys compete for jobs the rest of the night.

    Not these Seahawks. Their starters are the younger, new guys.

    “Well,” Carroll deadpanned before the start of his ninth preseason, “we’re a little different than we’ve been.”

    A little?

    Fifteen of the 22 players expected to start Thursday’s first game of the 2018 preseason against Indianapolis at CenturyLink Field were not starters in their spots this time last year. Seven of those 15 new starters weren’t on the team 12 months ago. That was when the Seahawks were coming off five consecutive postseasons and had Richard Sherman, Kam Chancellor, Michael Bennett, Cliff Avril and Earl Thomas as mainstays.

    Those mains didn’t stay.

    One, playoff-less season of injuries and discord then a tumultuous offseason and Thomas’ ongoing holdout have resulted in eight defenders expected to start against the Colts who last summer were not in their present spots: defensive ends Marcus Smith and Branden Jackson, tackle Tom Johnson, strongside linebacker Barkevious Mingo, rookie right cornerback Tre Flowers, left cornerback Shaquill Griffin, strong safety Bradley McDougald and free safety Tedric Thompson.

    It’s seven different starters on offense, which is installing a new, run-based system: left tackle Duane Brown, left guard Ethan Pocic, right guard D.J. Fluker, rookie tight end Will Dissly, fullback (assuming new coordinator Brian Schottenheimer begins the game in his characteristic I formation) Tre Madden, tailback Chris Carson and wide receiver Brandon Marshall.

    Heck, even Seattle’s kickers are new. Sebastian Janikowski, the 40-year-old the Seahawks signed this offseason after his 18 years with the Oakland Raiders, seems to have the early edge over former Jacksonville kicker Jason Myers in training camp. Both are likely to kick Thursday. Plus, rookie draft choice Michael Dickson is competing to win the punting job from 12-year veteran Jon Ryan.

    Yes, even the most fundamental aspects of this preseason opener will be new for most of this so-changed team.

    “Yeah, this is a big deal. This is a really big deal,” Carroll said – and this time it wasn’t just coach-speak. “We’re practicing a lot of stuff, and it’s not just the football stuff. It’s the preparation. It’s the setting. It’s getting comfortable with all of the mode and the buildup to the game and all that.

    “I make a big deal about these preseason games because I want to gain a lot out of them. I don’t want to just go out there and see what happens, you know? I want these guys to gain not just on the field, but all of the processing that is necessary to keep their minds and their performance intact. …

    “That’s just the way it is. You’ve got to dominate at home if you’re going to be any good, and we know that. … It starts with getting comfortable there and taking advantage of the setting.”

    The most intriguing of the new starters the Seahawks need to get comfortable and take advantage of the setting and their opportunities: Flowers and Thompson, against Colts quarterback Andrew Luck.

    Expect Flowers, the fifth-round pick the Seahawks are converting from Oklahoma State safety to NFL cornerback, to start while veteran Byron Maxwell rests a hip-flexor injury. Flowers got his first plays with the starters in practice when Maxwell first went out on Tuesday.

    At Carroll’s prototypical size for a cornerback, 6-feet-3 and 203 pounds, Flowers is Seattle’s future at the position. Flowers’ push to make that future the now includes seeking Marshall, the six-time Pro Bowl receiver, each day. Flowers is learning how to cover the uniquely sized and skilled star.

    Look for Flowers to seek matchups with Colts star wide receiver T.Y. Hilton in Thursday’s first quarter. Don’t just judge by the numbers; if Flowers stays over the top of Hilton, the Seahawks will be fine with any short gains Hilton may get on break-off routes in front of such preferred, step-kick technique coverage. That’s how Griffin won the right-cornerback job as a rookie this time last year, opposite the since-waived Sherman, by staying on top of long routes and defending those throws.

    “I want to be a technician-ist,” Flowers said. “I’ve got the size and the speed. I really want to focus on my technique a lot.”

    Asked how his progress has been learning Carroll’s unique step-kick that requires patience and anticipation off the line, Flowers smiled.

    “It’s comin’,” he said. “It’s going to take more than a couple months to get it. But it’s comin’.”

    What’s Flowers expect from his first NFL game Thursday?

    “Oh, man,” he said. “So much.”

    Thompson will be in the middle of the defense because Thomas will be in day 13 of his holdout over wanting a new contract.Thompson, the fourth-round pick from Colorado last year, spent his rookie season watching Thomas and playing special-teams. So this is his time – for now, anyway, until Thomas finally returns to the team.

    Thomas is nowhere near returning to team headquarters. He’s been at least 2,127 miles away from Renton, in fact. Thomas was spotted in Austin, Texas, on Wednesday watching his former University of Texas Longhorns practice.

    He continues to help Thompson from afar regularly. Thompson said they last talked last week about technique and playing free safety.

    On offense expect Germain Ifedi to again start at right tackle, as he did all last season while leading the NFL with 20 penalties. Carroll yanked Ifedi from Saturday’s mock-game tuneup for this Colts exhibition because of more penalties. Tuesday rookie fifth-round pick Jamarco Jones moved from being Brown’s backup at left tackle to the starting right tackle. Jones replaced Ifedi for a 2-minute-offense scrimmage. Any flags on Ifedi in Thursday’s game will further infuriate his coaches, if not get Jones into the game sooner than the rest of the reserves.

    Seattle’s starters are likely to play one or two series, if Carroll holds to his usual form. First-teamers who may see extended playing times for longer looks include Flowers, Dissly (though Nick Vannett may also start at tight end), Madden (rookie Khalid Hill went on injured reserve Tuesday, leaving Seattle with just two fullbacks on the 90-man roster).

    Aside from quarterback Russell Wilson, the 34-year-old Marshall, All-Pro middle linebacker Bobby Wagner and Pro Bowl linebacker K.J. Wright, there aren’t many Seahawks who will be treating this as the same-old Seahawks preseason opener.

    “We’ve been waiting and holding back,” Carroll said, particularly of all the new players in this new Seahawks era. “You hold back all offseason. It’s really not a football mentality in the offseason. You have to just hold off and hold back.

    “And now they don’t have to hold back anymore. So I’m looking to see if they can embrace the moment and jump on it and we can play our tail off and run up and down the field on those kickoffs and show what they got and have some fun playing the game.”


              Grip on Sports: When Felix is pitching this poorly, maybe it's time to change the channel      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    A GRIP ON SPORTS • If we really wanted to be a bummer on this beautifully hot Wednesday, we could talk about Felix Hernandez and quite possibly his final start as a Mariner. Or we could shift our gaze somewhere else, hopefully to allow you the pain of watching an icon stumble. We’ll pick the latter. Read on.

    ••••••••••

    • If it was Hernandez’s final start for the Mariners – he’s pitched poorly all season and awfully the past month for a team that is battling to stay in playoff contention – then I’ll remember it as the game Kyle Seager let him down. Two routine ground balls, two routine plays that didn’t get made cost four unearned runs. And probably even more.

    When a pitcher is struggling as much as Hernandez is, the mental battle is as important as the physical. When you are afraid to let go, when you are worried about your defense, when you see simple plays turn into runs, then it’s tough to battle through an inning. For a guy who needed all the support he could get, he didn’t get much from his third baseman.

    But we said we wouldn’t dwell on Hernandez. It’s too depressing.

    Instead, we are going to flip through the channels until we find something more uplifting to chat about. And that’s it. Flipping through the channels. When you are doing that, what sporting events do you prefer to stop on?

    My top five is simple. College basketball tops the list, followed by big league baseball. College football is third, golf fourth (though golf majors are No. 1 when they are on) and then the NFL.

    I know it’s not a typical list. The NFL is most everyone’s favorite. But I’m not that big a fan. Maybe it’s because the teams are too precise, too good. I like a few mistakes, the occasional screw up that shows the human side of the athlete. Or maybe it’s because the NFL has so many weird rules it makes it almost impossible to officiate accurately. Or fairly. I’m not sure. But it’s well down my list as favorite TV sports.

    Other sports that are growing on me include soccer, especially the better players from around the world, whether that be in national competition or in club play, and hockey. The advent of high definition TV helped golf more than any other sport, but hockey is right behind. It makes a huge difference these days to actually be able to follow the puck.

    One sport that has fallen from my watch list is tennis. As equipment changed over the past couple decades, the game went from being dominated by serve-and-volley players to those who pound the ball back and forth from the baseline. A two-hour match was normal. Not anymore – unless it is a mismatch. 

    Time is a problem with baseball as well. I love watching but rarely stay for an entire game anymore. The sport’s governors are trying to squeeze minutes out of games. That’s good. And when they have the guts to shave 30 seconds out of each half inning, saving around 10 minutes a game, they will finally be on the right track.

    See, I knew I could take your mind off Felix Hernandez’s troubles. At least for a little while.

But the best story he has is this one on the new redshirt rule – it allows anyone to play up to four games and still redshirt – and how it will impact the Cougars, especially Cammon Cooper. … Elsewhere in the Pac-12, Washington’s defense is going to be really good.

Grow your hair. … Colorado’s nose tackle has lost weight to be quicker. … The secondary may be Utah’s best ever. … Linebacker Porter Gustin, a huge part of USC’s defense, left practice with a knee injury yesterday and will have an MRI. … A dust storm disrupted Arizona State’s practice. … Arizona quarterback Khalil Tate is Sports Illustrated’s Heisman favorite. … The Wildcats may not get a safety back.

    Gonzaga: It may not move the meter much for the season ticket holders, but the Zags added two more home games to their nonconference basketball schedule. Idaho State will open the season Nov. 6 and Texas-Arlington will come to town Dec. 18. Jim Meehan has more in this story. … Jim also spoke with Larry Weir for the latest edition of the Press Box pod. … The West Coast Conference’s travel schedule suits the Gonzaga women just fine. Jim Allen spoke with coach Lisa Fortier about it for this story.

    EWU: There is a lot of experience on Eastern Washington’s football team, but that doesn’t mean there is no hope for the youngsters. Ryan Collingwood has a story on some redshirt freshmen making an impression.

    Idaho: The most-high profile position battle in Moscow is, of course, for the starting quarterback spot. Peter Harriman takes a look at how the competition is shaking out a week into preseason practice. 

    Indians: Spokane representatives played big roles in the Northwest League’s 13-10 loss to the Pioneer League in an all-star contest. 

    Mariners: So the biggest news from last night’s 11-4 loss to Texas was Hernandez’s outing. And whether he’ll get a chance in Houston later this week. But the good news is Oakland lost so the M’s didn’t fall any further back in the playoff chase. … Jean Segura, who has struggled in the second half most of his career, got a day off. … Is Dee Gordon the right guy to lead off?

    Seahawks: Who will play in Earl Thomas’ spot? … There are more questions than that to answer in the secondary. … A new candidate is emerging at right tackle. … Practice is the place to figure such things out

    Sounders: There were a couple additions Seattle wanted but may not get.

    • No matter how great a pitcher is, he can’t consistently throw fastballs past Father Time. Warren Spahn and Nolan Ryan may have been the only exceptions, though the aging process finally roughed up even those Hall of Famers. So Felix is not unusual.

    OAKLAND, California. Uno de los últimos fichajes de Oakland, Mike Fiers, firmó una sólida labor de cinco innings y un tercio y los Atléticos derrotaron el miércoles 3-2 a los Dodgers de Los Ángeles.

    Los Atléticos rompieron el empate a 2-2 en el octavo episodio cuando Khris Davis conectó un roletazo en una jugada de escogencia ante el relevista de los Dodgers J.T. Chargois (2-3) y remolcó a Marcus Semien desde tercera.

    El tercera base de los Dodgers Manny Machado fildeó el batazo de Davis y envió la bola al cátcher cubano Yasmani Grandal, que no pudo controlarla la pelota para eliminar a Semien. El error en la jugada se atribuyó a Grandal.

    El lanzador dominicano Jeurys Familia (3-0) trabajó la octava entrada con pelota de un hit para la victoria y Blake Treinen, que fungió como cerrador, sacó su 29no salvamento en 33 oportunidades.

    La derrota fue al registro de JT Chargois luego de conceder dos hits y una carrera en un inning y un tercio en la lomita.

    Por los Dodgers, los cubanos Yasmani Grandal de 3-1, con una anotada y una impulsada; Yasiel Puig de 3-0.

    Por los Atléticos, el dominicano Ramón Laureano de 3-1, con una producida.

              Detroit vs. L. Brooks Patterson      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson is scared.

    That's a decidedly off-brand emotion for the infamously haughty Patterson, who has governed affluent Oakland County with an open disdain for Detroit. Now, however, it appears the tables have turned, as Detroit redevelopment is showing no end in sight.

    In a July letter to directors of the Oakland Chamber of Commerce first reported by the Free Press, Patterson calls for a meeting to challenge a group of 23 CEOs — who he calls "egotistical," "self-appointed saviors" who are trying to help Detroit at the expense of Oakland County.…
              What was behind the ballot shortages in Michigan's Tuesday primary?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Some Oakland County voters reported waiting more than an hour to cast ballots Tuesday night, as the state saw its highest primary turnout in 40 years, with nearly 2.2 million voters.

    Days before the election, absentee ballot returns were up as much as 50 percent over the same time in the primary election cycle four years prior.

    So why weren't county elections officials prepared with more ballots?

    The answer remains a mystery — and Oakland County Clerk Lisa Brown has launched an investigation to find out — but it may just have something to do with money.

    State rules mandate that — at a minimum — clerks print as many ballots as the “most recent corresponding primary election plus 25 percent.” But four years ago, the turnout was just 1.3 million.

    Recognizing that might not be enough, the Secretary of State's office says it reached out to clerks across the state to suggest they print more.…

    The Mendocino Complex Fire in Northern California is now the largest wildfire ever recorded in California’s history. It started burning in July—the state's hottest month on record. Of the 20 largest wildfires in California history, 15 have occurred since 2000. This year's fires have already burned nearly three times as many acres as the same time last year. Experts say climate change has increased the length of fire season. In Oakland, California, we speak with Michael Brune, the director of the Sierra Club.

              Colón busca otra marca de Marichal      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Bartolo Colón tiene en mente otro objetivo después de convertirse en el pitcher latinoamericano con más triunfos en la historia.

    "Este año está casi por terminar. Pero hay algo que busco. Juan Marichal tiene más innings que yo. Es lo que falta", dijo Colón. "Quiero superarlo por los dominicanos".

    Pero es posible que no haya tiempo suficiente en su 21era temporada en Grandes Ligas para que el derecho de 45 años consiga su objetivo.

    Después de requerir seis intentos para obtener el triunfo 246 de su carrera y finalmente romper un empate con el nicaragüense Dennis Martínez en la cima de la lista de triunfos para un latinoamericano, Colón tendría que trabajar ahora 61 innings y dos tercios más para superar a su compatriota Marichal, miembro del Salón de la Fama, en la otra lista.

    Los Rangers, últimos de su división, solo tienen 46 juegos restantes en el calendario. Colón promedia apenas menos de seis innings en sus 21 inicios, y probablemente no tenga más de nueve aperturas restantes en una rotación de cinco lanzadores en caso de no perderse un solo turno.

    Pero los Rangers evidentemente están pensando a futuro y querrán ver a algunos jóvenes, especialmente una vez que el roster se expanda el 1 de septiembre. Además, la rotación actual es de seis abridores y Colón no volverá a lanzar hasta la próxima semana, a pesar de que el equipo no cuenta con días de descanso.

    Cuando se le preguntó ayer si se reduciría la carga de trabajo de Colón en la recta final, el manager Jeff Banister respondió: "Seguimos con la misma rotación que antes".

    Colón (6-10) permitió cuatro carreras y ocho hits en siete innings en martes para conseguir su histórico triunfo en la victoria de 11-4 sobre los Marineros. El robusto dominicano retiró a 14 de sus últimos 16 enemigos.

    Cuando Colón llegó a 243 triunfos el 6 de junio ante Oakland, empató a Marichal con la mayor cantidad para un lanzador dominicano. El pitcher de los Rangers superó al "Dandy Dominicano" en la lista de victorias con su triunfo del 18 de junio contra Kansas City.

    Marichal, quien lanzó 244 juegos completos en su carrera, trabajó 3.507 innings durante 471 juegos en su trayectoria de 16 campañas.

    Colón tiene 3.445 innings y dos tercios, la mayor cantidad para un pitcher en activo, al igual que en triunfos, después de vencer a los Marineros en su aparición número 560.

    "Lo llamativo de las 246 (victorias), hemos estado hablando de eso toda la mañana, es que hay un par de lanzadores con ciertas posibilidades", dijo Banister. "Si Bartolo llega a 250, podría ser el último con 250. Es lo más loco de todo".

    CC Sabathia, el lanzador de 37 años de los Yanquis, tiene 243 victorias en su carrera. Justin Verlander, con 35 años, es tercero entre los lanzadores en activo con 199 victorias. Félix Hernández, el derrotado ante los Rangers la noche del martes, acumula 168 triunfos, la mayor cifra para un venezolano en la historia.
