Interesting. Thanks. Yes, mostly old Germans/Dutch on my father's side going way back to the early 1770s, at least in the longest direct branch that I was able to trace. One Irishman who married an English woman way back, but aside from those Ryals, western PA folks were Sterners, Stokes, Baums, Weddels, Weavers, etc. Mostly sodbusters and coal miners. No Mennonites that I recall but I do have memories as a small child of going out into the farm country around Pittsburgh and my parents buying produce from them in some huge barn. Oddly I don't recall ever seeing any Amish. My mother's family all got off the boat about 100 years ago or more, all from Germany doing roofing or working in the steel mills. A couple worked at a brewery.

          Transit Death Spiral Continues      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Transit ridership has been dropping for four years and increased subsidies won’t fix the problem. Data released by the Federal Transit Administration yesterday show that nationwide ridership was 3.1 percent less in June 2018 than it had been in June 2017. Ridership fell for all major modes of transit, including commuter rail (-2.6%), heavy rail (-2.5%), light rail (-3.3%), and buses (-3.8%). 

June 2018 had one fewer work day than June 2017, which may account for part of the ridership decline. But ridership in the first six months of 2018 was 3.0 percent less than the same months of 2017, and again ridership declined for all major modes of transit.

As in previous months, I’ve posted an enhanced spreadsheet that has all of the raw monthly data from the FTA spreadsheet but includes annual totals from 2002 through 2018 in columns GZ through HP, modal totals in rows 2125 through 2131, transit agency totals in rows 2140 through 3139, and urban area totals for the nation’s 200 largest urban areas in rows 3141 through 3340. The same enhancements are included on the “VRM” or vehicle-revenue miles worksheet.

June 30 is the end of the fiscal year for many if not most transit agencies, so now we can compare transit’s 2018 fiscal year performance against 2017 (see columns HU to HW in the spreadsheet). Nationwide ridership in FY 2018 declined 2.7 percent from 2017 and of course it fell for hundreds of transit agencies.

Of the nation’s 50 largest urban areas, June ridership grew in eleven, January through June ridership grew in ten, and fiscal year ridership grew in just six. Seattle is one of the six, having grown by 1.4 percent, the others being Pittsburgh (0.2%), Providence (1.1%), Nashville (3.5%), Hartford (3.3%), and Raleigh (6.1%). Except Seattle, these urban areas have seen declines in other recent years so this increase is not a great victory and probably won’t be sustained for long in the future. 

As I’ve noted elsewhere, Seattle has enjoyed steady growth in transit ridership not because it built light rail but because it has increased downtown jobs from 216,000 in 2010 to 292,000 in 2017. Downtown jobs are the key to transit ridership because most transit agencies run hub-and-spoke systems focused on central city downtowns. But replicating Seattle’s downtown growth is impossible in most regions, as all but six American cities have far fewer downtown jobs; nor would most people agree to accept the costs Seattle is paying in terms of subsidies to new employers, traffic congestion, and high housing prices resulting from land-use restrictions that prevent jobs and housing from moving to the suburbs.

Fiscal year ridership declines in many urban areas were larger than the increases in the few regions where ridership grew. The worst were Charlotte (-15.1%), Cleveland (-11.7%), Miami (-10.3%), St. Louis (-8.2%), Memphis (-7.7%), Jacksonville (-7.0%), Baltimore (-6.6%), Richmond (-6.6%), Philadelphia (-6.5%), Cincinnati (-6.2%), Virginia Beach (-6.1%), Dallas-Ft. Worth (-5.9%), Phoenix (-5.6%), and Boston (-5.2%). This is in addition to significant declines in all of these urban areas between 2014 and 2017.

Officials at the Charlotte Area Transit System must be proud that the light-rail expansion they opened in March led to a 65 percent increase in June light-rail ridership over June 2017. Yet this was a hollow victory as the agency lost 36,000 more bus riders than it gained in rail riders.

Transit agencies get about a third of their operating funds from fare revenues, and the decline in ridership has forced many to reduce service. The vehicle-revenue miles page shows that nationwide transit service declined by 5.1 percent in June 2018 vs. 2017. While some people blame the ridership declines on the service reductions, at least one study says it is the other way around: service has declined because riders abandoned transit, forcing agencies to cut back on spending.

Transit ridership has declined in many urban areas despite increasing service. Among many others, Phoenix increased 2018 service by 11.0 percent yet lost 5.6 percent of its riders; San Jose increased service by 3.1 percent but lost 4.2 percent of its riders; Indianapolis increased service by 4.3 percent yet lost 3.9 percent of its riders; Austin increased service by 6.5 percent yet lost 1.1 percent of its riders.

It appears that ride hailing is the principal factor in ridership declines. A recent study estimates that ride hailing grew by 710 million trips in 2017. If just 36 percent of those trips were people who would otherwise would have taken transit, then ride hailing is responsible for all of the decline in 2017. Declining ridership leads to service reductions, which results in more ridership declines, producing a death spiral of revenue shortfalls followed by service reductions followed by more revenue shortfalls.

Some cities are supplementing transit revenues by taxing ride-hailing companies, which I’ve noted elsewhere is a little like taxing word processors to protect the typewriter industry or pocket calculators to protect the slide rule industry. At least one city is looking at taxing marijuana to subsidize transit.

It doesn’t really matter. The decline in transit ridership is beyond the control of transit agencies, and increasing subsidies to what is already the nation’s most-heavily-subsidized form of transportation won’t make much difference. The only question is when will appropriators realize that it is pointless to continue subsidizing a dying industry and start winding down those subsidies.

Penguins Update: Who’s on First?

It’s one of the all-time great comedy routines. Who’s on First, sublimely performed by the Hollywood Star duo of Bud Abbott and Lou Costello.

Who’s on First? What’s on second? Third?

I don’t know.

Sounds an awful lot like the Penguins’ potential line combinations for the coming season, doesn’t it? Especially given the fact that black-and-gold coach Mike Sullivan’s a notorious line shuffler.

Still, it might be interesting…and a challenge to boot…to ferret out what the lineup’s going to look like on opening night, especially given our bounty of centers and right wings and the comparative dearth of left wings. Subject to change, of course.

Here goes.

FIRST LINE: It’s pretty much a given that Jake Guentzel will man the port side next to Sidney Crosby. They combined for 19 goals during the 2018 postseason, accounting for a staggering 45 percent of the team’s output. Indeed, the preternatural pair seem to have an innate feel for each other.

Who’ll man the starboard side with Jake and Sid?

Penguins: Winter is Coming!

We are now just 1-month away from this years sneak-peak of the Penguin’s future, the Prospects’ Challenge in Buffalo. During last years Prospects’ Challenge Jordy Bellerive, Sam Militec, and Alex D’Orio impressed the coaching staff enough to earn themselves contracts. Bellerive and Militec built on their Prospects’ Challenge performance with very, very strong junior years, both scoring over 90 points. D’Orio struggled back-stopping a team of new, young kids. Most of his team from the previous year had grew up and moved on.

I had the opportunity to watch the majority of the Penguins Prospects’ games, so I saw why the Penguins offered those players contracts. However, they were not the only players that impressed me. Daniel Sprong, Zach Aston-Reese, Dominik Simon, Lukas Bengtsson, Antti Palojarvi, and Adam Johnson all showed me something. Sprong, Aston-Reese, and Simon all earned some time and had pretty good success in limited ice time and game experience last year in the NHL. Bengtsson struggled with physical ailments but had pretty good success on the ice when healthy in Wilkes Barre – Scranton (WBS) but chose to returned to the European Leagues this off-season (maybe he left due to being demoralized by watching a certain veteran turn-style continually get the lion’s share of the ice time even though he consistently was out of position and turned pucks over, while defensively solid defensemen where run out of town).

          Former Pennsylvania chief justice backs delay of grand jury report      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Harrisburg, Pa., Aug 8, 2018 / 04:30 pm (CNA).- The former chief justice of Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court has warned that the release of a grand jury report into allegations of sexual abuse and coverups by the Catholic Church in that state could violate the constitutional rights of those named in the report.

In an Aug 6 column in the Philadelphia Inquirer, Ronald D. Castile wrote that the state’s Supreme Court initially halted the report’s release because of “important constitutional issues,” including “questions regarding due process, fairness, and deprivation of personal reputational rights.”

“After reviewing the Supreme Court opinion, I agree that important constitutional rights are at risk of being denied because of issues pertaining to procedural aspects inherent in the Grand Jury Act and the impact on individual reputational rights.”

Article 1 of the Pennsylvania Constitution enshrines a person’s right to possess and protect their good reputation, placing it on the same footing as life and liberty.

Several individuals named in the report, including some priests, objected to being included in the document. They argued that the grand jury report links their names to terrible crimes or cover-up efforts, but that they had not been afforded the chance to respond to allegations made against them, or given the benefit of due process of law.

Castile agreed, criticizing “the inability of many of the named clerical members of the Catholic Church to defend themselves against allegations contained in the report.”

A source close to the grand jury investigation told CNA that while named individuals had been allowed to send in written statements during the investigation, they were not given the chance to appear in person, answer questions directly, or question other witnesses.

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ordered on July 27 that a redacted version of the report be published no later than August 14.

Castile, who spent 20 years as a prosecutor in the state of Pennsylvania and served as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court from 2008-2014, said that the Supreme Court’s decision to delay the release and order the redaction of some names had his support.

“I agree with the court's action, and I agree with its decision to assign all the parties concerned immediate hearings on the constitutional issues identified in the process and the substance of the report.”

Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro has been critical of the objections and pressed for the full report to be released as soon as possible. He even wrote to Pope Francis, asking him to tell intervene and order those appealing against the report’s release to “abandon their destructive efforts to silence the survivors.”

Castile said that the attorney general should have an equal concern for protecting the rights of all Pennsylvania citizens, and that the release of “quasi-official accusations of misconduct against many named but uncharged individuals” who have not had the chance to defend themselves was not appropriate.

The former chief justice stressed that an important function of a grand jury report is to recommend ways to address issues brought up in the course of the investigation, but that the Supreme Court’s decision allowed for any such recommendations to be published in a way that did not infringe constitutional rights.

The 800-page report is expected to name 300 priests accused of sexual abuse in six Pennsylvania dioceses over a period of decades. The dioceses are Pittsburgh, Erie, Allentown, Harrisburg, Scranton, and Greensburg.

The Diocese of Harrisburg and Diocese of Erie have already released the names of all clerics credibly accused of abuse, and Bishop David Zubik of Pittsburgh has committed to doing the same.

While Castile said it is important that victims of abuse receive justice, and that the recommendations of the grand jury investigation should be made public, he said that justice also requires protecting the rights of individuals and the presumption of innocence.

“What is called for is exactly what the Supreme Court has ordered,” Castile said, “a rational discussion of the issue by all sides in order to address the important constitutional questions that have arisen in the grand jury report.”

          This new fund is preserving the sites of African American history      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

In August 2017, a rally of hate groups protesting the removal of two statues honoring Confederate generals turned violent and deadly in Charlottesville, Virginia. It was a sad, tragic, and generally grotesque event. But it also sparked a counter-wave of black history preservation efforts, to ensure that more Americans remember the past correctly.

In July, the African American Cultural Heritage Action Fund, which arose post-Charlottesville, awarded $1.1 million to preserve and support 16 historical sites dedicated to sharing stories of African American activism and achievement. It’s the first distribution of an ongoing $25 million fundraising effort by the National Trust for Historic Preservation, which has drawn support from the Ford Foundation, the JPB Foundation and Open Society Foundations.

“The Action Fund was born in the wake of the aftermath of Charlottesville last summer when culture, heritage and public spaces collided,” says fund director Brent Leggs. “We wanted to build a social impact community to create a shared vision to tell the full history of our nation.”

To that end, $15 million from the fund will go toward preserving and promoting currently unrecognized or underfunded sites. Other funding will support ongoing programs that already work to promote African American heritage, and the youth-oriented effort HOPE Crew, which stands for offering “hands-on preservation experience” at African American sites. “The action fund is supporting the preservation of black monuments, and that takes many different forms,” Leggs adds, noting that funding can go to new research, preservation planning efforts, and staff positions at African American cultural institutions.

The fund initially received 830 proposals requesting $91 million dollars across 42 states, which Leggs says affirms the idea that there’s been a dramatic “inequity and invisibility” in how American history is remembered. Initial grantees include Shockoe Bottom, in Richmond, Virginia, the second largest slaveholding site in the United States, which is currently a paved-over and largely unexcavated archeological site, and potential memorial space. More support went to the August Wilson House, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, home of legendary playwright August Wilson (who wrote Fences), and a collection of important civil rights sites in Birmingham, Alabama. Other recipients include honoring the early accomplishments of buffalo soldiers at Yosemite National Park and the artistic contributions of John Coltrane.

Sadly, not much has changed in Charlottesville. The city’s plan to take down those statues was countered by a state law that prohibits interfering with war-veteran memorials. But that hasn’t stopped more national progress, including a wave of anonymous donors who have stepped forward to fund the removal of other Confederate monuments.

In June, the National Trust issued a statement condemning the motivation behind Confederate tributes: “Simply put, the erection of these Confederate memorials and enforcement of Jim Crow went hand-in-hand. They were intended as a celebration of white supremacy when they were constructed.” The organization suggested that decisions about what should happen to such features should probably occur at a community level, but if retained there is an obvious need for many to become “re-contextualized,” in order to remember history without reverting to the wrong values. “As recent rallies in Charlottesville and elsewhere illustrate, they are still being used as symbols and rallying points for such hate today.

The Action Fund continues working even more proactively. “The events in Charlottesville were a moment of moment of reckoning, and in many ways it has propelled the American preservation movement to consider its contribution to society,” Leggs says. “We are now framing preservation through the action fund as a new form of justice equity and activism, as a way to inspire a current and new generation to advocate on behalf of America’s diverse historic places. The time is now for our nation and communities to tell the full history and to honor the full contributions of African Americans to our nation.”

Это цитата сообщения Майя_Пешкова Оригинальное сообщениеПамяти Микеланджело

В среде людей от мала до велика
За то, что смог он миру сотворить,
Чтут его память гения,стоИка
Те кто живёт,почтут-кто будет жить! 

Микеланджело — гениальный скульптор, живописец и архитектор — был одним из последних «универсальных людей» Возрождения, со всей страстностью своего темперамента преданным передовым идеалам итальянского гуманизма — не только эстетическим, но и общественным.На протяжении столетий его имя почитаемо,а творения известны всему культурному сообществу.О нем написаны тысячи книг и монографий,снято множество фильмов,его именем названы улицы...У него множество почитателей,невзирая на век,страну и национальность...

Вначале я вам расскажу о музее имени великого творца...

Чуть в стороне от центраФлоренции, на узенькой, но весьма длинной via Ghibellina, 70 незаметно расположился дом-музей Микеланджело, призванный отдать должное памяти и гению великого флорентийца.

Каза-Буонарроти («Дом Буонарроти») — музей во Флоренции, посвящённый итальянскому скульптору Микеланджело Буонарроти . Размещается в здании середины XVI века, бывшем в собственности Микеланджело (сам он здесь не жил) и его родственников.



Дом семьи Буонарроти во Флоренции

Микеланджело родился в городке Капрезе, в провинции Ареццо, и во Флоренцию был перевезён ребёнком. Повзрослев, он не жил здесь постоянно, но время от времени возвращался. Так как доходы отца были невелики, детей рано привлекали к работе — большинство сыновей были задействованы в производстве шёлкового сукна, которым славилась Флоренция. Микеланджело работал сначала в мастерской художников Доменико и Давида Гирляндайо, а через год, весной 1489 года, он перешёл в художественную школу в сады Боболи, где и начал заниматься скульптурой.

Со временем семья приобрела в городе три соседних участка, где только в 1546—1553 построили имение (сам Микеланджело жил тогда в Риме). После смерти скульптора его тело было перевезено во Флоренцию, так как семья хотела похоронить его на родине. Погребение состоялось в церкви Св. Креста. По завещанию Микеланджело дом отошёл его племяннику, Леонардо Бунарроти.

В 1612 году здание получило свой современный вид. Его последним владельцем в XIX веке был Козимо, по завещанию передавший этот дом муниципалитету Флоренции. С 1859 года, через год после смерти Козимо, здесь обустроили музей.

Несмотря на мемориальную направленность музея, работ самого Микеланджело, который прославился ещё при жизни, здесь немного. Старинное библиотечное собрание включает в себя архив семьи, более 200 рисунков художника и его письма. Среди экспонатов Каза-Буонарроти находятся скульптурные модели и ранние барельефы Микеланджело — «Мадонна у лестницы» и «Битва кентавров». В музее также находится скульптурный портрет Микеланджело работы Даниэле да Вольтерра, которому Буонарроти помогал в создании композиций для его произведений. Экспозиция дополнена выставкой археологических находок, имеющих отношение к истории Тосканы.


Три списка провизии с идеограммами, Микеланджело, 1518 г. (Архив Буонарроти)

Этот музей представляет собой скромный образец барочного дворца, в котором собрана богатая коллекция (по тем временам, конечно) различных произведений искусства, когда-то принадлежавшая семейству Микеланджело.

семья мастера

Его стоит посетить уже хотя бы потому, что здесь выставлены два знаменитых мраморных рельефа, которые скульптор создал в самом юном возрасте, а также – Madonna della scala (Мадонна на лестнице), в которой явственно чувствуется, что Микеланджело тщательнейшим образом изучал творчество своего знаменитого предшественника Донателло. Разумеется, не обойдена вниманием и Битва кентавров – красноречивый знак любви Микеланджело к классическому искусству.

Кроме того, перейдя порог этого дворца, нам предоставляется уникальная возможность «связать» произведения Микеланджело с делами его семейства, которое прилагало все усилия для того, чтобы расширить свое жилище, украсить его и сохранить для потомков ценнейшее культурное наследие (среди которого стоят упоминания богатые Архив и Библиотека).

Была собрана и значительная коллекция произведений искусства: рисунки, картины, статуи, майолика и древние предметы, извлеченные при раскопках, которые в настоящее время выставлены на первом этаже дворца. В одном из залов выставлены ценнейшие фрагменты рисунков, подписанные самим Микеланджело, всего же эта коллекция насчитывает 205 листов.

Но коллекция музея не ограничивается лишь предметами и работами Микеланджело, она располагает еще и довольно большим количеством экспонатов (четрежей, документов и т.д.), которые были переданы музею в дар или же на хранение, и которые значительно обогатили и дополнили семейную коллекцию.Среди этих экспонатов стоит отметить деревянный макет фасада церкви San Lorenzo, выполненный Микеланджело, и очень выразительного Речного бога – фрагмент (я бы даже сказала «набросок») скульптуры, предназначавшуюся для Баччо Дель Бьянко

Портрет семейства БуонарротиНовой Ризницы(в начале), которую Буонарроти так никогда и не создал; также интересны две картины XV века Noli me tangere, созданные неизвестными авторами по утерянному картону Микеланджело.Идея создания подобного музея, прославляющего семейство и главное – знаменитого предка Микеланджело, принадлежала Микеланджело Буонарроти Младшему – довольно заметной фигуре в литературных кругах своего времени, который также был неплохим организатором разного рода культурных событий. Именно он, начиная с 1612 года, начал работы во дворце, уделив особое внимание «Галерее» и трем следующим за ней залам.

Комната дельи Ангиоли

Для него работали такие знаменитые флорентийские мастера как Эмполи, Пассиньяно, Артемизия Джентилески, Пьетро да Кортона, Джованни да Сан Джованни, Франческо Фурини и молодой тогда еще Якопо Виньяли. Именно в этих трех залах Микеланджело Младший разместил самые ценные экспонаты своей коллекции, многие из которых сейчас представляют собой часть экспозиции музея, например, деревянная пределла с Историями святого Николая – шедевр Джованни ди Франческо, последователя Доменико Венециано.

Зал делла Нотта

Помимо постоянной экспозиции, музей устраивает ежегодные выставки, посвященные культурному и историческому наследию Микеланджело и Дома Буонарроти, которые приобрели за многие годы международную славу благодаря своей оригинальности и глубине.

На выходе из музея хочу поделится ещё и музыкой в честь Мастера

1974 год, предпоследний год жизни тяжело больного Шостаковича, принес, после оркестрового варианта «Шести стихотворений Марины Цветаевой», Пятнадцатый квартет, Сюиту для баса и фортепиано на стихи Микеланджело и оркестровый вариант Сюиты.

Figur des Michelangelo mit Bildhauerfäustel von Georg Rheineck, 1890

В этих произведениях композитор, знавший, как мало жизни ему отпущено, говорил о том, к чему неотвязно возвращались мысли:

It is on the list of cultural monuments of Hamburg

О завершении жизни.
О ее смысле.
О смерти.
О бессмертии.

Portrait statue of Michelangelo along the balustrade. Library of Congress Thomas Jefferson Building, Washington, 



Об этом — Пятнадцатый квартет, сочиненный в июне в Доме творчества «Репино». О том же — вокальная сюита, написанная летом на даче, в подмосковной Жуковке и посвященная жене, Ирине Антоновне, ставшей верным другом и спутницей последних лет жизни. О чувствах, вызвавших это посвящение, ярче всего говорят следующие строки:

Унылым сердцем больше не таю
Ни возгласов, ни вздохов, ни рыданий.
Что нам явить, мадонна, гнет страданий
И смерть уж недалекую мою;
Но дабы рок потом мое служенье
Изгнать из вашей памяти не мог, —
Я оставляю сердце вам в залог
.

Собственно, поводом для обращения именно к стихам Микеланджело явилось пятисотлетие со дня рождения великого художника Возрождения. Композитор заинтересовался сборником стихов Микеланджело (1475—1564), изданных в переводах известного литературоведа А. Эфроса. «Я вновь и вновь обращался к его образу, смотрел его работы, читал стихи; меня поражала многогранность его таланта, передо мной вставал не только ученый, не только художник, но и поэт.

И хотя сам Микеланджело относился к своему поэтическому творчеству более чем скромно, меня потрясла красота его стихов, глубина его мыслей, простота и гениальность всего того, что сделал этот один из величайших сынов человечества», — писал Шостакович. Из сборника он выбрал одиннадцать стихотворений, содержание которых ясно из простого перечисления их заголовков, данных композитором: «Истина», «Утро», «Любовь», «Разлука», «Гнев», «Данте», «Изгнаннику», «Творчество», «Ночь», «Смерть», «Бессмертие».

Переводы, сделанные не профессиональным поэтом, кое-чем не устраивали Шостаковича, и он обратился к Андрею Вознесенскому с просьбой пересмотреть и откорректировать их. Поэт согласился и перевел стихи заново. Однако Шостакович, увлеченный замыслом, ожидать окончания его работы не стал и написал музыку на имеющиеся тексты Эфроса.

Желая поскорее услышать новое сочинение, композитор передал ноты исполнителям — превосходному басу Евгению Нестеренко и его концертмейстеру Евгению Шендеровичу, — когда Вознесенский принес ему свой перевод. Он был очень хорош — ярче, интереснее, чем тот, над которым работал Шостакович. Он взял стихи с благодарностью, но увидел, что не может ими воспользоваться: музыка создавалась на те, старые строки. Она срослась с ними в единое целое, и невозможно было что-то вырвать, что-то заменить. Растерянный, он извинялся перед Вознесенским, очень переживал неловкость случившегося.

Верный себе, композитор не дал сочинению определения «цикл», которого не любил, а определил его как сюиту, хотя по сути это именно вокальный цикл. Премьера Сюиты на стихи Микеланджело, ор. 145, состоялась в Ленинграде, в Малом зале филармонии, 23 декабря 1974 года. Еще до нее, в ноябре, Шостакович сделал ее оркестровый вариант под ор. 145а.

Роза Микеланджело

Ещё при его жизни часть стихотворений была положена на музыку. Среди самых известных композиторов-современников Микеланджело — Якоб Аркадельт («Deh dimm» Amor se l’alma" и «Io dico che fra voi»), Бартоломео Тромбончино, Констанца Феста (утраченный мадригал на стихотворение Микеланджело[48]), Жан где Конс (также — Консилиум).

Также на его слова писали музыку такие композиторы, как Рихард Штраус (цикл из пяти песен — первая на слова Микеланджело, остальные — Адольфа фон Шака, 1886), Хуго Вольф (вокальный цикл «Песни Микеланджело» 1897) и Бенджамин Бриттен (цикл песен «Семь сонетов Микеланджело», 1940).

В 2006 году сэр Питер Максвелл Дейвис завершил работу над «Tondo di Michelangelo» (для баритона и фортепиано). В произведение вошло восемь сонетов Микеланджело. Премьера состоялась 18 октября 2007 года.

В 2010 году австрийский композитор Мэтью Дьюи написал произведение «Il tempo passa: music to Michelangelo» (для баритона, альта и фортепиано). В нём используется современный перевод стихов Микеланджело на английский язык. Мировая премьера произведения состоялась 16 января 2011 года

Микеланджело при жизни считался крупнейшим мастером. Сейчас его относят к числу величайших мастеров за историю человечества. Значительное число его скульптур, картин и произведений архитектуры являются самыми знаменитыми в мире. Самая известная его работа — статуя Давида

          TU Pennsylvania Route 6 Brook Trout Odyssey Offers Glimpse Of Challenges Facing Brook Trout      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
By Matteo Moretti

Not very often does a college kid get told that they’ve been selected for an all-expenses paid, three-week long adventure.
So, you know that when four passionate, engaged, and, frankly, pretty quirky fishing geeks were presented with the opportunity to create a life-long connection to the native brook trout that call Pennsylvania’s waters home, there was not a second of hesitation.
The trip: The TU Pennsylvania Route 6 Brook Trout Odyssey.
Piggy-backing off of National TU’s Costa 5 Rivers Native Odyssey, Charlie Charlesworth, president of PATU, decided to create something similar, but added a further element of scientific education in the form of research.
Behind Charlie, our crew consisted of four crazy fly fishermen that are all officers and/or presidents for their school’s TU Costa 5 Rivers clubs: Myself (Middlebury College), Hunter Klobucar and Tyler Waltenbaugh (Edinboro University), and Christopher Piccione (Colorado State).
Teamed up with Penn State University doctoral student Sara Mueller, our mission for this trip was to understand the story behind native brook trout from the perspective of fishermen, scientists and conservationists.
On May 30, our crew met at Keystone College where we would then embark on our trip across Pennsylvania while following the entirety of Route 6 until June 20.
Over the course of the trip, we learned about the deep history that hides within the vermicular pattern of the brook trout’s marbled back, and to be brutally honest, it is scary.
Brook trout tell a story and their presence or absence in an ecosystem details history – ranging from the effects of secondary growth forests due to 17th century logging, or the current impacts of global climate change.
Aside from being able to fish in places ranging from pristine cascading pools beneath the freeway to remote meandering streams, we also grew as fishermen through our research work with Sara.
Sara’s Ph.D. thesis is looking into determining whether brook trout from different watersheds have genetic and physical differences that cause them to act as different species.
Our research consisted of two main parts: The assessment of previously unassessed waters for unknown brook trout populations for the Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission, and fin clippings for Sara’s work on genetics.
The Commission assigned us a list of streams/coordinates to do preliminary assessments of which we were able to complete 17. Many more sites were attempted but certain obstacles such as private land or physical inaccessibility prevented sampling.
Of the 17 streams we assessed, we established that there were four new native brook trout populations and one wild brown trout population.
Through our research of unassessed waters using the technique of electroshocking, we learned about the unlikely places that brook trout populations do and don’t exist.
It was quite an eye-opening experience when we would electroshock a perfect beautiful mountain stream and find nothing, but then find a whole thriving population of brook trout in a roadside drainage/culvert.
By discovering these new populations, we are helping protect our waters for the native fish. Additionally, by collecting fin clippings, Sara hopes that we can unlock any hidden information about brook trout that is currently unknown.
Fortunately, we were able to meet up with and learn from several other groups/ organizations along the way as well.
A site manager from Cabot Oil & Gas toured us around a freshwater withdrawal facility for hydrofracking that constantly strives to be environmentally friendly and conscious.
We spent time with Environmental Science students and professors from Keystone College, Mansfield University and University of Pittsburgh at Bradford and had the opportunity to see what projects they were working on and what material they cover in their classes.
Additionally, we got a glimpse into the work of everyday conservation efforts for native brook trout by US Forest Service Hydrologist Chuck Keeports and Luke Bobnar from the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy.
We used forest debris to create a future fish ladder by building up the stream bed in order to reconnect a tributary to a stream that was previously inaccessible due to the placement of a culvert.
Fishing for “brookies” is as much about the fish themselves and their magnificent displays of aggression towards a dry fly, as it is about the places it can bring you and the people it can help you meet.
It is amazing how one fish could bring together such a dynamic and passionate group of individuals.
All of this wouldn’t have been possible if not for the support of Trout Unlimited, DCNR, PFBC, equipment from Cabela’s and REI, as well as funding from Cabot Oil & Gas, Southwest, Seneca and DKLM Energy.
We’re all grateful that we were able to create a long-lasting relationship not only with each other, but also with Pennsylvania’s state fish.
This trip taught us that brook trout are in danger and although we are to blame, no small task goes unseen.
Accompanying our adventure will be an approximately 20-minute documentary that will expand upon this article and will shed light on the problems brook trout face-- bringing our community into conversation.
The documentary is scheduled to be released at the beginning of September so be on the lookout for it!
It’s time to get the story about native brook trout right and let its voice be heard.

In an Aug 6 column in the Philadelphia Inquirer, Ronald D. Castile wrote that the state’s Supreme Court initially halted the report’s release because of “important constitutional issues,” including “questions regarding due process, fairness, and deprivation of personal reputational rights.”

“After reviewing the Supreme Court opinion, I agree that important constitutional rights are at risk of being denied because of issues pertaining to procedural aspects inherent in the Grand Jury Act and the impact on individual reputational rights.”

Article 1 of the Pennsylvania Constitution enshrines a person’s right to possess and protect their good reputation, placing it on the same footing as life and liberty.

Several individuals named in the report, including some priests, objected to being included in the document. They argued that the grand jury report links their names to terrible crimes or cover-up efforts, but that they had not been afforded the chance to respond to allegations made against them, or given the benefit of due process of law.

Castile agreed, criticizing “the inability of many of the named clerical members of the Catholic Church to defend themselves against allegations contained in the report.”

A source close to the grand jury investigation told CNA that while named individuals had been allowed to send in written statements during the investigation, they were not given the chance to appear in person, answer questions directly, or question other witnesses.

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ordered on July 27 that a redacted version of the report be published no later than August 14.

Castile, who spent 20 years as a prosecutor in the state of Pennsylvania and served as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court from 2008-2014, said that the Supreme Court’s decision to delay the release and order the redaction of some names had his support.

“I agree with the court's action, and I agree with its decision to assign all the parties concerned immediate hearings on the constitutional issues identified in the process and the substance of the report.”

Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro has been critical of the objections and pressed for the full report to be released as soon as possible. He even wrote to Pope Francis, asking him to tell intervene and order those appealing against the report’s release to “abandon their destructive efforts to silence the survivors.”

Castile said that the attorney general should have an equal concern for protecting the rights of all Pennsylvania citizens, and that the release of “quasi-official accusations of misconduct against many named but uncharged individuals” who have not had the chance to defend themselves was not appropriate.

The former chief justice stressed that an important function of a grand jury report is to recommend ways to address issues brought up in the course of the investigation, but that the Supreme Court’s decision allowed for any such recommendations to be published in a way that did not infringe constitutional rights.

The 800-page report is expected to name 300 priests accused of sexual abuse in six Pennsylvania dioceses over a period of decades. The dioceses are Pittsburgh, Erie, Allentown, Harrisburg, Scranton, and Greensburg.

The Diocese of Harrisburg and Diocese of Erie have already released the names of all clerics credibly accused of abuse, and Bishop David Zubik of Pittsburgh has committed to doing the same.

While Castile said it is important that victims of abuse receive justice, and that the recommendations of the grand jury investigation should be made public, he said that justice also requires protecting the rights of individuals and the presumption of innocence.

“What is called for is exactly what the Supreme Court has ordered,” Castile said, “a rational discussion of the issue by all sides in order to address the important constitutional questions that have arisen in the grand jury report.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

~~~~

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

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

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

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

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

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

~~~~

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

The 2018 Hart Institute Administrators are:

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

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

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

The Democratic Socialists of America are planning to hold their first ever “rust belt” caucus conference in Pittsburgh this weekend.
With a call to “radicalize the rust belt,” DSA groups across the country support:
  • A single-payer healthcare system that could cost $32 trillion if implemented nationally and would cost well over $12 billion if Pennsylvania-specific legislation were enacted.
  • “Free” higher education for all, which would come at a cost of $8 billion in Pennsylvania.
  • Open borders and the elimination of ICE.
It has been four weeks since the Republican Party of Pennsylvania asked Pennsylvania Democrat Congressional candidates where they stand on the DSA agenda and, thus far, there has been no response.
Similarly, Democrat Lt. Governor nominee John Fetterman—who is campaigning today with DNC Chairman Tom Perez—has sought the endorsement of socialists, campaigned openly with avowed DSA supporter Bernie Sanders, and supports DSA concepts like single-payer healthcare and “free” higher education for all.
Gov. Tom Wolf has not signaled whether or not he supports his running mate’s DSA beliefs and their associated tax increase.
Currently, four Democratic statehouse nominees have openly stated their DSA affiliation.
In response to the DSA “rust belt” caucus conference coming to Pittsburgh, Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Val DiGiorgio, made the following statement:
“Democratic socialists support a radical agenda that seeks to take away individual freedom in the name of principles that would cause a self-claimed ‘ ‘massive redistribution of income’.’
“It is unbelievable that less than 30 years following the end of the Cold War—a period in our nation’s history where we were united in opposing socialist forms of government—that some in our nation have forgotten the sacrifices made to ensure our freedom from these very same ideals professed by the Democratic Socialists of America.
“Socialist values and concepts, which would do no less than deprive individuals the freedom of prosperity and implement a system of massive government control of earnings, have no place in an American society that values the ability of the individual, liberty, and entrepreneurial spirit.”

The Philadelphia Eagles put out their first 2018 depth chart ahead of the team’s preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday evening. Big news! But not really. Remember, this depth chart is very unofficial. It is not assembled by the Eagles coaching staff. It’s actually the public relations team who puts it together. And even if this WAS the official depth chart, there’s still plenty of time for things to change. The Eagles still have several more weeks of summer practices in addition to an entire preseason schedule to play. With the disclaimers out of the way, let’s overanalyze the depth chart!

Click here to view original web page at www.shotinthedark.infoI noticed it a couple of years ago – whenever anti-gun groups trot out victim stories, one thing that never gets mentioned is the perpetrator – the person pulling trigger. You can listen to “survivors” (they almost never survived violence themselves; they’ve almost invariably hijacked the legacy of a dead relative) for hours without ever knowing that the firearms involved hadn’t levitated themselves. There’s a reason for that; talking about perps would confirm everything the good guys have been saying about the issue, forever: Lawful gun owners accounted for just 18 percent of gun violence, according to a recent studyconducted by researchers at the University of Pittsburgh. Researchers analyzed 762 cases in which a gun was recovered by the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police Firearm Tracking Unit (FTU). “Most perpetrators (79%) were carrying a gun that did not belong to them,” researchers concluded.

          What you need to know about Keith Block, the ex-Oracle exec that Wall Street says got a 'well-deserved' promotion to co-CEO of Salesforce (CRM, ORCL)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Salesforce Keith Block

  • From a managers meeting in Hawaii Tuesday evening, Salesforce announced the promotion of Chief Operating Officer Keith Block to co-CEO, alongside founder and CEO Marc Benioff.
  • Block, who joined the company in 2013, will continue to focus on operations and strategy while Benioff focuses on "vision and innovation."
  • But before joining Salesforce, Block had a lengthy and storied career at Oracle. 
  • Read on for more of what you need to know about Salesforce's new co-CEO.

Salesforce cofounder Marc Benioff has led the company as CEO since its founding in 1999. But now, the $106 billion software company has a new leader to help achieve its goal of $23 billion in annual revenues by 2022. 

President and Chief Operating Officer Keith Block was promoted to co-CEO. He'll continue to focus on Salesforce's strategic growth and operations, while Benioff executes on what the company describes as "vision and innovation."

Salesforce first announced Block's promotion late Tuesday from management meeting in Hawaii, a state whose native culture is imbued through out the customer relationship software company's ethos. 

While the title is new, Block has managed the day-to-day operations at Salesforce since his promotion to COO in 2016. For the last two years, it's been Block's job to grow the company's global sales and marketing units, even as he's tasked with keeping the company's 32,000 employees moving in the same direction. He has been president, vice chairman and director of the company since 2013.

In addition to the title change, Block will get a raise. His base salary will increase from $1.15 million to $1.435 million, according to a company filing. His annual target bonus will also increase from 100% to 200% of his base salary, which means if he does a good job, Block will take home $4.305 million next year. And that's not including the equity in the company he already owns.

Wall Street applauded the move, with analysts calling it "well deserved" and a "positive development for shareholders," as well as a good sign for Salesforce's upcoming Q2 2019 earnings.

Here's everything else you need to know about San Francisco's newest CEO. 

Benioff and Block both have a history at Oracle 

Marc BenioffThe story of Salesforce is deeply linked to Oracle, its longtime rival and inspiration for the "No Software" mentality that fueled Salesforce's rise as a cloud platform. In fact, Benioff and Block met each other back in the '80s, when the pair both worked for Oracle.

"This announcement really reflects how Salesforce is run today, which is that Keith and I over the last five years have developed a very strong partnership,” Benioff told Fortune. “Of course, we knew each other for quite a bit before that — we both started at Oracle in 1986 — so we have known each other forever. And we’ve really grown to be great partners. We wanted to cement that, so we’ve exchanged our vows and now we’re co-CEOs.”

Benioff himself joined Oracle out of college, and by age 26 he was a vice president with a $300,000 salary to boot. Oracle founder Larry Ellison was a mentor to Benioff, so much so that they reportedly spent Thanksgiving together and double-dated. But in 1999, after 13 years at Oracle, Benioff left to start Salesforce.

Block lasted twice as long the storied database giant. When he joined Salesforce in 2013, he had spent 26 years rising up the ranks at Oracle. By the time he left, he had been Oracle's executive vice president of North America for nearly a decade, making him a key player at the company. 

Oracle, which has a market cap of $190 billion, sells databases and the licenses software that helps companies manage their data. But it's best known for the efficacy and performance of its sales teams. 

It's that all-star sales mentality that Block brought to Salesforce. Analysts credit Block with Salesforce's move from serving primarily small customers, to winning business with the largest of enterprises. The company continues to sign big deals at a record pace, and now has roughly 150,000 customers that are under contracts worth at least $13.3 billion.

It's also noteworthy that while not many company's have multiple CEO's, Oracle similarly splits the CEO position between two executives with different strengths: the strategy-focused Mark Hurd and the financially-rooted Safra Catz. 

He famously left Oracle after criticizing Mark Hurd

Despite his long tenure, Block actually left Oracle in 2012 under something of a dark cloud after the publicizing of some unflattering instant message conversations, in which he criticized Hurd, then the second in command at Oracle.

In the instant messages, which came out in the discovery process of a legal battle between Oracle and Hewlett-Packard, Block shared his strong disapproval of Oracle's acquisition of Sun Microsystems, saying "We bought a dog. Mark wants us to sell the dog. ... Nobody wants to sell Sun. ... It baaaallllloooooooows."

It wasn't long after that Hurd left Oracle.

Block has deep roots in Boston

Keith Block

While Salesforce is the biggest tech company with headquarters in San Francisco, Block maintains deep roots on the east coast.

The Carnegie Mellon alumnus and self-declared Boston sports fan is officially based in San Francisco. But in the past, he could be found hanging around the Boston office, and he's credited with building Salesforce's presence in the region.

“Ultimately, we’d like this to be one of the biggest offices that we have in the country, and one of Boston’s biggest employers," Block told the Boston Globe in May 2017. 

As of August 2017, the company had around 1,000 employees in Boston, including the team formerly known as Demandware, which Salesforce acquired in 2016 for $2.8 billion and turned into its Commerce Cloud.

Block's wife Suzanne Kelley is also a longtime resident of Boston, where she is a vice president at Oracle, leading operations and project management for the global business unit. 

In February, the couple donated $15 million to establish the Block Center for Technology and Society, a research and policy institute at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. Block is also involved in philanthropy with the Boston public school system through the non-profit Boston Partners in Education.

Show Me State voters will vote on three different medical marijuana initiatives, Oklahoma finally gets some livable temporary medical marijuana rules, and more.

[image:1 align:left]Illinois

Illinois Governor Signs Bill Allowing Medical Marijuana Administration in Schools. Gov. Bruce Rauner (R) has signed into law a bill that requires public schools to allow the parents of sick children to administer medical marijuana to them at school. The law allows parents to administer "cannabis-infused products" if both the child and the parents have been approved under the state's medical marijuana law.

Missouri

Missouri Will Vote on Not One, Not Two, But Three Medical Marijuana Initiatives. The secretary of state's office last Thursday certified three different medical marijuana initiatives for the November ballot. There is a constitutional amendment from New Approach Missouri, as well as a constitutional amendment from Find the Cures and an easier to amend statutory initiative from Lowell Pearson, a Jefferson City attorney.

Ohio

Ohio Awards First Medical Marijuana Processing Licenses. The state Department of Commerce last Friday issued seven provisional licenses to aspiring medical marijuana processors. This is just the first round of licensing for processors; the state could license up to 40 such operations.

Oklahoma

Oklahoma Health Board Approves New Medical Marijuana Rules. The Board of Health last Wednesday adopted new rules to govern the state's medical marijuana system. The new rules amend or totally revoke the original proposed rules, which included a ban on the sale of smokeable marijuana, a requirement that a pharmacist be present at dispensaries, and a requirement that women of childbearing age take a pregnancy test before using medical marijuana. Also gone are guidelines that limited THC levels.

Oklahoma Governor Signs Revised Emergency Rules for Medical Marijuana. Gov. Mary Fallin (R) on Monday signed a revised set of emergency regulations to govern medical marijuana use in the state. The first attempt at emergency rules blew up in Fallin's and the state Health Department's face, being widely criticized for provisions banning the sale of medical marijuana, requiring a pharmacist to be present in dispensaries, and requiring that women "of child-bearing age" undergo a pregnancy test. None of those provisions remain in the new rules, which Fallin called "very basic" and a good basis for developing a comprehensive regulatory regime.

Pennsylvania

Pennsylvania Dispensaries Now Offering Buds. For the first time since state-legal medical marijuana dispensaries opened their doors in the state, patients can buy dried flowers from plants grown under the legal system. At least 16 dispensaries in the state were offering buds as of last Wednesday, with more certain to follow as harvest season looms. But under state law, the buds cannot be smoked -- only vaped.

Owners, please keep your pets safe: A recall was issued Wednesday for a popular pet food item due to a potential for contamination of listeria.

According to a local CBS affiliate in Pittsburgh, G and C Raw, LLC, has issued a recall of some of its Pat’s Cat turkey line, as well as its ground lamb dog food.

          Ananya Dance Theatre Stages World Premiere of WORK WOMEN DO      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Internationally-recognized and Twin Cities-based Ananya Dance Theatre (ADT) will present the world premiere of Shaatranga: Women Weaving Worlds, a 90-minute dance without intermission, as part of Women of Substance at The O'Shaughnessy at St. Catherine University, St. Paul, Friday and Saturday, September 21-22 at 7:30pm. The work is the fifth in the company's five-year series on the theme "Work Women Do."

Shaatranga (which means "seven colors" in Bangla and is pronounced "SHA-trong-uh") asks the question, "How do we show up for each other?" and suggests that global women who engage in world-making are refusing to be seen in only blue/indigo - the pain, sorrow, and defeat that has historically framed them. Instead, they share their multifaceted stories that express not only their pain, but their joys, laughter, and the work they do, that goes largely unrecognized, to create positive force in their communities and the world.

Choreographer Ananya Chatterjea uses two primary metaphors to explore relationships among global south communities linked by Indian Ocean trade routes that pre-existed colonization and slavery: Indigo, an important export/import on these trade routes across Asia and Africa, and blue jeans, whose ubiquitous presence in global commerce falls differently on our skin, mediated through histories of denim and indigo.

Shaatranga is Ananya Dance Theatre's sixth production and collaboration with The O'Shaughnessy at St. Catherine University. Executive Director Kathleen Spehar and Production Manager Kevin A. Jones are key partners in the detailed planning that leads to the production's mix of interactive and concert elements. "Work Women Do" concludes with this production exploring women's work with indigo and cotton, commissioned by The O'Shaughnessy with support from a Joyce Foundation Award.

Chatterjea's choreography combines metaphor and poetry in Contemporary Indian Dance. Yorchha - the company's remix of Classical Odissi, Chhau martial art, and Vinyasa Yoga - is a movement practice anchored by social justice as it invokes the spirit of Dakini, traditionally embodied by destruction, chaos, and ultimately transformation. Dakini lives in the possibilities of audiences' and performers' discomfort and insists that the role of women's rage and their spiritual ecstasy be seen in the arc towards equity. This tumult resolves through the choreography that weaves ritualistic performance and dances of the gentle warrior.

ADT's dancers and collaborators represent a range of ethnic, cultural, immigrant, and of color communities: South, South east, and East Asian, African American, Pacific Islander, Latinx, and mixed race. The ensemble's composition as "women of color" is crucial, yet nuanced, including queer men of color and trans women of color.

Project collaborators are celebrated artists, including behavioral artist/collaborating director Marcus Young, composer Dameun Strange, composer/lyricist Queen Drea/Andrea Reynolds, scenic designer Chelsea Warren, media designer Darren Johnson, costume designer Annie Cady, and lighting designer Kevin A. Jones.

          Former Pennsylvania chief justice backs delay of grand jury report      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Harrisburg, Pa., Aug 8, 2018 / 04:30 pm (CNA).- The former chief justice of Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court has warned that the release of a grand jury report into allegations of sexual abuse and coverups by the Catholic Church in that state could violate the constitutional rights of those named in the report.

In an Aug 6 column in the Philadelphia Inquirer, Ronald D. Castile wrote that the state’s Supreme Court initially halted the report’s release because of “important constitutional issues,” including “questions regarding due process, fairness, and deprivation of personal reputational rights.”

“After reviewing the Supreme Court opinion, I agree that important constitutional rights are at risk of being denied because of issues pertaining to procedural aspects inherent in the Grand Jury Act and the impact on individual reputational rights.”

Article 1 of the Pennsylvania Constitution enshrines a person’s right to possess and protect their good reputation, placing it on the same footing as life and liberty.

Several individuals named in the report, including some priests, objected to being included in the document. They argued that the grand jury report links their names to terrible crimes or cover-up efforts, but that they had not been afforded the chance to respond to allegations made against them, or given the benefit of due process of law.

Castile agreed, criticizing “the inability of many of the named clerical members of the Catholic Church to defend themselves against allegations contained in the report.”

A source close to the grand jury investigation told CNA that while named individuals had been allowed to send in written statements during the investigation, they were not given the chance to appear in person, answer questions directly, or question other witnesses.

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ordered on July 27 that a redacted version of the report be published no later than August 14.

Castile, who spent 20 years as a prosecutor in the state of Pennsylvania and served as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court from 2008-2014, said that the Supreme Court’s decision to delay the release and order the redaction of some names had his support.

“I agree with the court's action, and I agree with its decision to assign all the parties concerned immediate hearings on the constitutional issues identified in the process and the substance of the report.”

Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro has been critical of the objections and pressed for the full report to be released as soon as possible. He even wrote to Pope Francis, asking him to tell intervene and order those appealing against the report’s release to “abandon their destructive efforts to silence the survivors.”

Castile said that the attorney general should have an equal concern for protecting the rights of all Pennsylvania citizens, and that the release of “quasi-official accusations of misconduct against many named but uncharged individuals” who have not had the chance to defend themselves was not appropriate.

The former chief justice stressed that an important function of a grand jury report is to recommend ways to address issues brought up in the course of the investigation, but that the Supreme Court’s decision allowed for any such recommendations to be published in a way that did not infringe constitutional rights.

The 800-page report is expected to name 300 priests accused of sexual abuse in six Pennsylvania dioceses over a period of decades. The dioceses are Pittsburgh, Erie, Allentown, Harrisburg, Scranton, and Greensburg.

The Diocese of Harrisburg and Diocese of Erie have already released the names of all clerics credibly accused of abuse, and Bishop David Zubik of Pittsburgh has committed to doing the same.

While Castile said it is important that victims of abuse receive justice, and that the recommendations of the grand jury investigation should be made public, he said that justice also requires protecting the rights of individuals and the presumption of innocence.

“What is called for is exactly what the Supreme Court has ordered,” Castile said, “a rational discussion of the issue by all sides in order to address the important constitutional questions that have arisen in the grand jury report.”


          New breast milk depots open in Philly area       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

For women who are either in need of or looking to donate breast milk, new breast milk depots recently opened in the Philadelphia area allow for safe, convenient donations and pick-ups.

The depots were opened by the Mid-Atlantic Mothers’ Milk Bank (MAMMB) at three locations: Lifecycle WomanCare in Bryn Mawr and the Breastfeeding Resource Center locations in Abington and Wayne.

The Milk Bank works to provide breast milk to hospitalized infants in need, specifically infants born prematurely – which make up about 11 percent of the 140,000 babies born in Pennsylvania and West Virginia annually. Natural breastmilk has been shown to produce organic benefits that can't be equaled with formula.

"Babies receiving donated breast milk in the NICU [neonatal intensive care unit] for necessary supplementation have lower rates of serious complications and tend to leave the hospital earlier than those being fed formula," MAMMB said in a press release announcing the opening of the new breast milk depots.

Breastfeeding moms, pictured, can donate excess breast milk to breast milk depots in the Philly area.

The depots are intended for local women, "who have excess milk beyond their own baby’s needs" MAMMB said, to drop off donations that can help out other babies. All donor moms are volunteers and must undergo screening, while donated milk will be bottled, pasteurized and tested before being provided to sick infants.

“These new milk depots will make donating more accessible for local moms," MAMMB executive director Denise O’Connor said in a statement. "There are some moms in the area already donating, and we hope the milk depots will encourage even more. The presence of a milk bank or milk depots in a region is also associated with an increase in breastfeeding rates which is our ultimate goal ­– more babies having the benefits of their own mother’s milk.”

Breast milk depots accepting donations

MAMMB opened in Pittsburgh in 2016 and said it has received donations from nearly 1,000 women, dozens of whom reportedly came from the Philadelphia area. They say they've so far donated 290,000 ounces to 23 different hospitals and numerous clinics throughout Pennsylvania and West Virginia, the area they currently serve.

"The Breastfeeding Resource Center works with mothers in the hospital and in our outpatient settings. Our IBCLCs [International Board Certified Lactation Consultants] see the strong need for donor milk in our NICUs,” Breastfeeding Resource Center executive director said in a statement. "Our dream is that we can one day have it available to full-term babies also."

Philadelphians can also donate breast milk at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), and at other depots like one at Acelleron Medical Products in Bensalem, Pa.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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







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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

On November 27, 1972 he was traded to the Houston Astros in exchange for Rich Chiles and Buddy Harris.

All Time Mets List: Agee has played the third most games in centerfield for the Mets with 591. He is 13th on the Mets all time stolen base list (91) 18th in runs scored (344) 20th in HRs (82) & in the top 25 in hits, doubles & triples. 

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

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

He finished his 12 year career with a .255 lifetime batting average, 999 hits 130 HRs 170 doubles, 27 triples, 558 runs scored 167 stolen bases a .320 on base % & 433 RBIs in 1129 games.

In the outfield Agee played 1073 games, 933 in centerfield. He had 2371 put outs, with a.975 fielding % making 61 errors & 53 assists.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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




          Late Sixties Mets Infielder: Kevin Collins (1966-1969)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Kevin Michael Collins was born August 4, 1946 in Springfield, Massachusetts. In high school he competed against future MLB players Mark Belanger & Fran Healy. 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Collins passed away in Naples, Florida at the age of 69 in February 2016.

          Coeur d’Alene Symphony to celebrate 40th anniversary, new conductor Jan Pellant      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

A 40-year anniversary is nothing to scoff at, but a new conductor brings all the more reason to celebrate.

The Coeur d’Alene Symphony will celebrate four decades of music and the addition of Conductor Jan Pellant on Saturday at its 40th Anniversary Celebration at the Coeur d’Alene Resort.

The two-year search for a new conductor came to an end earlier this summer when it was announced that Pellant would take over as artistic director and conductor after David Demand, who led the symphony for 15 years, announced his resignation two seasons ago.

Pierre-Alain Chevalier, of Houston; Barry Kolman, of New York City; Danh Pham, of Pullman; and Jorge Luis Uzcategui, of Spokane, also competed for the position.

Pellant, a native of the Czech Republic, has been music director of the Lexington Chamber Orchestra since 2015.

He has conducted the Czech National Symphony Orchestra, Prague Symphony Orchestra, North Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, Pilsen Philharmonic Orchestra, Talich Chamber Orchestra, Pavel Haas Chamber Orchestra, Vidin Symphony Orchestra, Carnegie Mellon Philharmonic, Pittsburgh Bethel Park Orchestra and Orchestra Enigmatic as well as orchestras in Thailand, Japan and the United States.

He has also led concert tours in Romania, China and France.

Pellant studied at the Prague Academy of the Performing Arts, has earned degrees from the Prague Conservatory and Carnegie Mellon University, and is currently a Doctor of Musical Arts candidate in orchestra conducting at the University of Kentucky.

The anniversary event will also feature hors d’oeuvres, dessert, entertainment and an auction.

Pellant’s inaugural season with the Coeur d’Alene Symphony begins with “Nineteenth Century Grandeur: Borodin in the Steppes of Central Asia” on Oct. 5-6. The concerts feature guest musician Felicity James.

          Todd Haley yelling at Corey Coleman on Hard Knocks offers insight into why he was traded      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Haley often tried to light a fire under Coleman in practice. Watch video

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Todd Haley yelling at Corey Coleman in training camp was as familiar a sound as sirens blaring, f-bombs from Gregg Williams and fans chanting 'Baker Mayfield.'

In one scene Tuesday night on the premiere of HBO's Hard Knocks, a mic'd-up Haley can be heard admonishing Coleman for not giving enough effort on a few plays, which was a common occurrence in practice. It offered insight as to why the Browns gave Coleman away to the Bills for a 2020 seventh-round pick and a bag of peanuts.

The cameras captured Coleman failing to catch two balls on cornerback T.J. Carrie, one in which he let Carrie break up the pass, and another in which a lob from Tyrod Taylor slipped through his hands as he was diving for the ball.

After the latter, Haley yelled, "C'mon Corey that's a big play. Corey, get in and there get it! Have some desire, geez oh man!''

Haley had already warned Coleman that it was "a make or break year'' for him in the offseason.

The Browns' No. 15 overall pick in 2016, Coleman made some nice catches in camp, but all too often didn't fight hard enough for a contested ball, or let it get picked off by not running a precise enough route.

On Saturday, his last day in Browns camp, Coleman was mostly idle while rookie Antonio Callaway replaced him at the X spot. (Unfortunately for Callaway, he was stopped by the police later that night and accused of marijuana possession).

While receivers and QBs were running through passing drills at the end of camp, Coleman was on the sidelines looking miffed. Coach Hue Jackson later said he was likely suffering from a sore hamstring, which had been giving Coleman problems in camp.

Although Coleman stepped up his game this offseason under the guidance of Jarvis Landry and Taylor, it wasn't up to the Browns' standards, especially not for a first-round pick. Coleman also had the stigma of being the first player drafted from the haul obtained in the Carson Wentz trade with the Eagles, and he was also still in the doghouse for dropping the potential gamewinning touchdown pass in Pittsburgh in the season finale that would've avoided 0-16.

When he arrived at Bills training camp on Tuesday, Coleman indicated the coaches didn't like him.

"It feels good to be wanted," he told reporters after practice. "They have their trust in me. I really don't want to let them down. A lot of things don't work out the way you want it to work out. I've got much respect for my teammates, man, those guys in the locker room over there in Cleveland are top-notch guys. We have a great fan base in Cleveland, too," he added. "I'm going to leave it at that."

Coleman also acknowledged that the drop in Pittsburgh was hard to overcome.

"Right, it's easy to point the finger and stuff," Coleman said. "Every week in the NFL you see receivers drop a ball, drop a pass. It matters how you respond. And that's a big thing."

The Bills are hoping that the Baylor product will flourish with a change of scenery, but GM Brandon Beane called it a "low-risk'' trade given the late-round pick and only $3.5 million guaranteed over the next two seasons.

          Pirates Sweat Out 4-3 Series Clincher Over Rox      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Good start; a Starling single and steal turned into a run after Gregory's slump-busting double, and he came home on Red Beard's two-out knock. Fraze added another single before German Marquez put off the fire. Arch worked a 1-2-3 frame. In the second, Hechy doubled in his first Bucco at bat and went to third on Corey D's knock after a fizzled bunt try by Arch. Corey stole second, but the Bucs couldn't bring them home. The Rox went quietly. Red Beard singled with one gone in the third, beating the shift with an opp field bouncer.  He had a chance to stretch it but put on the brakes before he was doubled to third by Fraze. J-Bell rolled over on a slider, but the resulting grounder got Moran home. Hechy was walked intentionally before Arch K'ed. Marquez got the first Colorado knock with two away but no further fuss was made. Marquez celebrated his hit by tossing an immaculate fourth inning - three K on nine pitches. DJ LeMahieu opened with a knock and David Dahl caught a down-the-middle, knee-high change and sent it over the fence.

The Rox added a two-bagger with an out followed by a walk with Arch at 67 pitches and laboring, but he worked out of it thanks to a nifty grab by J-Bell. Cervy walked to begin the fifth on a generous full count call. An out later, Fraze doubled, but the Rox gunned down Amore at home. It was a bad wave by Joey Cora and he was out by a mile as the Bucs blew another opp. The Rockies dropped a single into left with one gone; a long fly tagged him to second. A walk put another Rox aboard with Nolan Arenado up, who tapped back to the mound to end it. Corey D singled with two outs in the sixth, but Starling's at 'em ball ended it without any noise. Edgar Santana took the hill and gave up a double with two away, then a walk before whiffing his way out of the jam. Seung Hwan Oh took the ball in the seventh and walked Gregory. A two-out tapper moved him up to no avail. Keone Kela gave up an opening knock to Charlie Blackmon, but Cervy caught him stealing, surviving a challenge made after a sloppy tag by Hechy. KK fanned the next pair.

Adam Ottavino worked the eighth, and a walk and a roller to third that Arenado couldn't handle got him into an early pickle. J-Hay pinch hit and dropped a perfecto bunt to load the bases. Corey D's sac fly brought in an insurance run. A force left Corsairs on the corners, then Gregory was walked intentionally before Cervy bounced out. Kyle Crick jogged in and bopped the first batter; a single left Rox at first and third. An out later, another single made it 4-3 with Rockies still on the corners. Kyle got a big K, then Felipe was sent to his rescue, getting a lasered out corralled by a diving Fraze at second. Harrison Musgrave twirled a clean ninth. Felipe gave up another well-stroked ball, but Corey D gloved it. The next two outs were garden variety and you can RTJR.

Arch struggled but gave the Bucs five frames and left with the lead

Coors Field is a bad place to squander opportunities, but the Bucs pushed across just enough to take the day. Missed chances cut ways; the teams combined to strand 21 runners. We still haven't seen Arch do his thing yet - he was under the weather today (food poisoning suspected) and it's to his credit that he could grind out five frames. The pen came to the rescue again, even if Crick was human today. Another interesting sidebar - Fraze has been much improved defensively at second this year; we may see him steal the job from J-Hay.

Notes:

  • Fraze had three hits today; Corey D and Red Beard added a pair of knocks.
  • The Bucs pitching has been rock-steady; giving up just seven runs to the Rox at Coors Field and nine in their last four outings. Now if the bats can crack with some consistency; despite that strong hurling, the Pirates are just 2-2 in those four games.
  • German Marquez's immaculate inning was the second in Colorado franchise history; Rex Brothers did it first in 2014. The Pirates have three, with the last tossed by Juan Nicasio in 2016 against the Cards.

          Pirates Close Out In Colorado w/Rubber Match, Arch v Marquez, Lineup & Notes - Bell Back, Joey O Gone      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Today: The first pitch of the getaway game is at 3:10 and will be carried by AT&T SportsNet & 93.7 The Fan.

Pitchers: RHP Chris Archer (3-5, 4.49) closes the set against RHP German Márquez (9-8, 4.70). Arch didn't exactly flash ace stuff in his Pirates debut, but we expect better now that he's settled in and the initial adrenaline surge has receded. He's faced the Rox once back in 2016, giving up two runs and fanning 11 in six innings at Coors Field. Don't sleep on Marquez because of his line; he's 3-0/2.95 in his last six starts after recovering from a five-game run where he was serving BP. He's already beaten the Bucs in an April outing, holding them to two runs in six innings with six whiffs.

Lineup: Corey Dickerson LF, Starling Marte CF, Gregory Polanco RF, Fran Cervelli C, Colin Moran 3B, Adam Frazier 2B, J-Bell 1B, Adeiny Hechavarria SS & Archer P. A different look for getaway day - Bell's back, Hechy gets his first Bucco start and Fraze steps in at second. Frazier actually has been much better there this year; it's his 26th start and he has a Total Zone defensive runs saved total of +2; J-Hay has a -8. 

Notes:
  • After poking, probing, and a sweaty workout this morning, J-Bell was activated from the DL and Jose Osuna returned to Indy. The gang is back together.
  • Edgar Santana has faced a 50-50 draw against righties and lefties; he's put up a reverse split against them (.265 OppBA v righties, .216 v lefties).
  • Good company: Last night, Jamo tossed the first nine-inning complete game by a visitor at Coors Field since Clayton Kershaw on July 2nd, 2013.

          8/8 Through the 30’s: Triple Triples; 46-Hit Twin Bill; Stop Thief; Radio Rights; Lyons Roar; HBD Billy & Elzie      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
  • 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.

          8/8 From the 40’s Through the 60’s: Bucs Sold; Roadrunner Roll; Murry Does It All; Cover Boy & More; HBD Brett & Mark      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
  • 1946 - Bill Benswanger, representing the Dreyfuss family, sold the Bucs to a group headed by Frank McKinney and John Galbreath with Bing Crosby as one of the minority investors. The price was reported to be $2.5M. The Galbreath group controlled the Pirates until 1985 when he sold the club to a group of local business and civic leaders, the Pittsburgh Associates, who baby-sat the club for another decade. 
Murry Dickson 1952 Topps
  • 1952 - Murry Dickson did it all for the Bucs. He pitched a ten inning, six hit 1-0 shutout against the Cubs at Forbes Field and drove in the game’s only run. Joe Garagiola led off the tenth with a single, and Brandy Davis, who had just been called up from Waco and didn’t arrive at the park until 7:30, was sent in to pinch run. A grounder moved him up a station, and with two down, Dickson hit a ball toward the SS hole. Roy Smalley made a diving stop to knock the ball down, but that didn’t slow down the speedster Davis who sprinted home from second on the infield knock. 
  • 1957 - RHP Mark Ross was born in Galveston, Texas. Mark got six pretty brief stops in the show, two with Pittsburgh in 1987 and his last go-around in 1990. In 10 Pittsburgh outings, he went 1-0/3.95. Ross pitched for Team USA in 1987 and served for several seasons as a minor league coach for the Atlanta Braves organization. 
  • 1960 - Dick Groat was featured on the cover of Sports Illustrated for the story “Fiery Leader of the Pirates.” The team captain and All-Star became the first Pirate to be named MVP since Paul Waner in their last pennant year of 1927 and led league with a .325 BA. 
  • 1961 - The Bucs swept a twinbill against the Phils by 10-2, 3-2, scores at Connie Mack Stadium, running Philadelphia’s losing streak to 12 games. Harvey Haddix and Tom Sturdivant spun the ball nicely while Smoky Burgess went 5-for-5 in the opener with a homer and four RBI while Don Hoak added five hits during the afternoon, also launching a long ball. The frustrated Phillies didn’t go down without a fight - in the sixth inning of the nightcap, Roberto Clemente threw out the tying run, Tony Gonzalez, at the plate. Catcher Hal Smith was spiked high and applied a hard tag; Gonzalez took a poke at him and the fireworks erupted. The ensuing basebrawl went on for nearly 10 minutes, left both managers (Danny Murtaugh & Gene Mauch) battered and had seven different individual battles going on before peace was restored. The umps, who perhaps wisely stayed out of the fray and oddly didn’t toss a soul, had two of Philadelphia’s finest sit on each teams’ bench for the remainder of the contest. 
  • 1963 - Injuries drove RHP Vern Law to the voluntarily retired list. But he returned with a vengeance to win 12 games in 1964, and in 1965, at age of 35, he led the Pirates with 17 victories and a 2.15 ERA. He was honored with the Lou Gehrig Memorial Award as comeback player of the year. But the injuries finally wore him down and the Deacon retired permanently after the 1967 campaign. 
  • 1963 - RHP Brett Gideon was born in Ozona, Texas. He was a sixth round pick of the Pirates in 1985 and made his debut in 1987, getting in 29 games with a 1-5-3, 4.46 line. He was traded to Montreal for Neal Heaton in 1989, and only got in five games in two Expo seasons. Brett worked in the minors until 1992 before hangin’ up the spikes. Now he’s the national sales director for a pharmo company. 
Brett Gideon 1988 Fleer
  • 1964 - Bob Veale struck out 11 batters and tossed a complete game as the Pirates beat the Cubs 5-2 at Forbes Field. The Cubs scored twice in the first inning before Big Bob shut the door and let the offense do its thing. Bob Bailey put the Pirates ahead in the fifth inning with a three-run homer while Gene Freese provided the coup d’ grace in the sixth with a two-run blast. 
  • 1969 - Manny Sanguillen was a homer shy of the cycle and scored three times as he led the Pirates to a 7-1 win over the Padres at San Diego Stadium. The Roadrunner was on a roll, going 13 for his last 26 at bats. Willie Stargell added a double and two RBI. Bob Veale gave up 11 hits but struck out 10 Friars for the win.

          Chris Archer y los Piratas se imponen los Rockies      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

DENVER. Adam Frazier bateó tres hits y realizó una excelente jugada defensiva, y los Piratas de Pittsburgh derrotaron el miércoles 4-3 a los Rockies de Colorado.

Chris Archer (4-5) realizó su segunda apertura desde que llegó en un canje con Tampa Bay. Admitió dos carreras y cinco hits en cinco entradas de labor.

Frazier disparó dos dobletes y un sencillo, pero esa tal vez no fue su mayor contribución en el campo. Con corredores en las esquinas y dos outs en la octava entrada, el emergente Chris Iannetta bateó un fuerte rodado al hueco de la segunda base. Frazier se lanzó para quedarse con la esférica y retirar a Iannetta para terminar la entrada y preservar la ventaja de una carrera.

Germán Márquez (9-9) empató una marca personal con 10 ponches y David Dahl pegó jonrón por los Rockies.

Archer retiró a sus primeros ocho enemigos hasta que Márquez pegó sencillo en el tercer inning. Colorado se destapó en el cuarto episodio con el jonrón de dos carreras de Dahl, que recortó la ventaja a 3-2.

Por los Piratas, los dominicanos g El cubano Adeiny Hechavarría de 3-1. El venezolano Francisco Cervelli de 4-0.

Por los Rockies, los venezolanos Germán Márquez de 2-1; Gerardo Parra de 3-0; Carlos González de 1-0.

          Patriots notebook: Officials say there will be plenty of preseason flags thrown thanks to batch of new rules      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

FOXBORO — Expect plenty of flags tonight when the Patriots open the preseason against the Redskins.

NFL referee Brad Allen visited Gillette Stadium yesterday to discuss rule changes for the 2018 season, and he indicated that officials will “err on the side of throwing (flags)” in the preseason.

“Up until now, we haven’t seen these plays,” Allen said. “The players haven’t experienced this rule. We’re going to have to get a library. And frankly, in preseason, we may throw and then go back and say, ‘No, this is really not what we want.’”

As for the rule change that has generated the most buzz? That’s easily the new “helmet rule,” which stipulates that “it is a foul if a player lowers his head to initiate and make contact with his helmet against an opponent.” Contact does not need to be with the opponent’s helmet to be considered a violation. For example, a player who lowers his head into the chest of an opponent will be subject to penalty.

This applies to all players on the field, even those in the trenches. And a violation can result in an ejection.

Naturally, the ambiguity of the rule has been met with skepticism across the league.

Is it a violation for a quarterback to dive forward on a sneak? How about a running back who lowers his head as he plunges into a crowd of defenders?

Allen explained that officials can make the distinction between “initiating” contact and “bracing” for contact. It’s not considered illegal for a ballcarrier to “brace” for contact.

“Will it be subjective to some degree? I think it will,” Allen said. “We have to remember that safety is a priority, but there are a number of fouls that are subjective. I mean, offensive holding is subjective. . . . So will there always be potentially differing opinions? Yes. But as long as we are all educated in the same line, I think we’ll do the very best we can for the safety of the game.”

Patriots safety Devin McCourty anticipates an adjustment period in the preseason.

“I think all of us — you know, we kind of went over the rule,” McCourty said. “There’s some clarification and understanding, but until you kind of get out there and play and see what’s called, what’s not called, I think it will still be an adjustment for guys. Hopefully by the time we get to the season, guys are just playing.”

Added safety Patrick Chung: “I’m just going to play, man. I mean, it’s football. I don’t play dirty anyway, so, I’m just going to continue to play my way. I don’t make the calls. I just try to make plays.”

It’s baaack

The term “survive the ground” is out.

Our old friend — “football move” — has returned.

For the 2018 season, the criteria for a catch is as follows: 1) if a player has control of the ball, 2) whether any part of his body makes contact with the ground in bounds, and 3) if he is then able to make “a football move.”

Asked about the definition of “football move,” Allen said, “It’s really the same as it was before. I think what they’re trying to get us to envision is either a third step with the ability to extend the ball for a line-to-gain or a goal line or something like that. Pulling the ball back in doesn’t count as a football move because you’re still completing the catch, but the (definition of) football move has not really been expanded. It’s just back.”

The idea of the “football move” was removed from the rulebook in 2015. After several controversial calls under the revamped rule, which focused on a player’s ability to maintain control of the ball as he hit the ground, the NFL decided to revisit its previous terminology.

As the officials explained in an instructional video yesterday, the overturned touchdown catch by Pittsburgh’s Jesse James against the Patriots in Week 15 would have been upheld under the new rule.

Pour it on

Two of the Pats’ past three practices have been marred by hellacious storms.

The skies opened up about midway through yesterday’s session, and the Pats were drenched by the time they walked off the practice field.

“Today was a little bit of a shocker,” McCourty said. “We didn’t see that in the forecast. But guys here are so used to no matter what the weather is or isn’t, that once it started raining, like no one said anything, just keep practicing. I was even talking to my brother and he was like, ‘Man, I’ve been on teams where like we’ve gone inside the bubble once this happens.’ But like here no one thinks that because we never do it.”

Zinedine Zidane admitted his team had to produce a good display as they ended a run of four successive draws with a 6-1 hammering of Real Betis in Seville. D.J. Fluker Jersey . There had been whispers of criticism directed at Zidane after a 100 per cent start to the campaign after four games in La Liga tailed off disappointingly, with a lacklustre draw at home to Eibar before the international break especially unconvincing.But the 11-time European champions underlined their quality on Saturday night as Isco scored a brace and there was a goal apiece for Raphael Varane, Karim Benzema, Marcelo and Cristiano Ronaldo as they remained second behind Atletico Madrid on goal difference. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just £6.99. No contract. I am very pleased - after four draws we had to play a game like that, Zidane said in quotes reported by Marca.We played with the necessary intensity. There are no small teams any more but we started strongly and it can be difficult for the opponent when you start that way. Real Madrid scored their fourth against Real Betis with a superb counter attack Varane headed in the opener in the fourth minute and Benzema added the second 28 minutes later, with Toni Kroos supplying both assists. Marcelo scuffed in a third from an offside position but Iscos fourth was a thing of beauty as his tap-in rounded off a lightning-fast, end-to-end team move.The former Malaga man, who had been on the periphery of Zidanes squad in the early weeks of the season, curled in a brilliant fifth after Alvaro Cejudo had pulled one back for Betis.Ronaldo had the final word with his second La Liga goal, bursting through on goal and powering a shot past Antonio Adan. Heres a collectors item as Ronaldo misses an open goal in Real Madrids match with Real Betis The players are good and intelligent, and we knew we had to play in that (intensive) manner. We have to be satisfied with that result and use it as a reference point for the rest of the season. To win like that away from home is not easy.On the performance of Isco, Zidane added: He did well and I am happy for his goals and his display in general. Cristiano Ronaldo scored his fourth goal of the season for Real Madrid Ronaldos form has been under the microscope and his reaction to being substituted away to Las Palmas earlier in the season was widely scrutinised, but Zidane is content with the contribution from his Portuguese superstar.I dont look at him with even a little bit of anxiety - its normal that he wants to score goals, the Frenchman added.It is important that he conveys a positive energy to the rest of the team, and I am happy for his goal.

Also See: Real Madrid cruise past Betis Messi nets on Barca return Ronaldo feels back to his best Perfect Barca prep for City clash D.J. Fluker Seahawks Jersey . Granlund scored 2:04 into the first period. Max Reinhart, on his first NHL shift of the season, neatly stripped the puck from Zack Smith at the Senators blue-line. As he moved in, his attempted shot deflected into the slot where Granlund buried a shot past Craig Anderson. Sebastian Janikowski Jersey . However, the 38-year-old is in no hurry to sign with another team. "Im not in a rush. This will be my last contract, so I want to do it right," said Burris on Thursday. http://www.seahawksauthenticofficialonli...ersey.html . Still, Milan remained five points behind city rival Inter Milan in the race for fifth place and the final Europa League berth, after Inter beat 10-man Parma 2-0. Meanwhile, Paul Pogba led the way as Juventus stayed on course for a third consecutive title with a 1-0 win over relegation-threatened Bologna.Each week, The Reporters put their thumbs out to the good and the bad in the world of sports. This week they discuss Jason Collins ignoring homophobic slurs, Sam Tagesons big day with the San Jose Sharks, Alex Rodriguez in the news again, and Sidney Crosbys Hart Trophy case. Bruce Arthur, National Post My thumb is up to Jason Collins of the Brooklyn Nets. Remember Jason Collins? Big guy, sets screens, commits fouls, plays defence, and recently the first openly gay player in any of North Americas four major sports leagues. He never did much as a player; he still doesnt. And in his first 10 games since signing with Brooklyn, Collins hasnt been a distraction, hasnt created a media circus, and says that only one opposing player has thrown homophobic slurs his way. And how Collins reacted to that was important. He could have named names, damaged the guys reputation, and cost him a big league fine. Instead, in the manner of Jackie Robinson, Collins ignored the slurs. He just played, with dignity. By doing nothing Jason Collins showed that nameless idiot what mattered, and that it wasnt him. Steve Simmons, Sun Media My thumb is up to the San Jose Sharks, and not because theyre my pick to win the Stanley Cup. Well get to that in another show. This week the Sharks made the most meaningful transaction since the trade deadline. They signed 17-year-old Sam Tageson to a one-day contract, and turned one day into a lifetime of memories for many. Tageson was born with a debilitating heart condition that prevents strenuous activity. But against his doctors advice, he has never stopped playing hockey. The Sharks signed him to a one-day deal, had him practice with the teamm, dress with the club, hang around the players, and then skate out through that gigantic shark head and stand at the blue line for the national anthem. Sebastian Janikowski Seahawks Jersey. The crowd, the bench, the building, went crazy. For one night, there was crying in hockey and everybody loved it. Dave Naylor, TSN Radio 1050 My thumb is down to Alex Rodgriguez, who once again is embroiled in controversy, this time over supposed unpaid legal fees racked up while he was trying to defend himself from the season-long suspension. If you thought we could look forward to this baseball season to some respite from more A-Rod controversy, well, think again. Theres some disputing the legitimacy of this weeks reports, with suggestions that A-Rod fully intends to pay his bills. And since he has a net worth reported at more than 300 million, why wouldnt we give him the benefit of the doubt? Wait a minute … Alex Rodriguez? Benefit of the doubt? Oh, nevermind. Dave Hodge, TSN My thumb is up in agreement with Pittsburgh Penguins coach Dan Bylsma, who thinks Sidney Crosby is due to win the Hart Trophy for the second time, though I will take issue with Bylsma when he says there is "no question" that Crosby is the NHLs most valuable player. I do think theres a question – Im not sure why when the Penguins captain is running away with the scoring race and has appeared in all of Pittsburghs 70 games to lead the Pens to a certain Metropolitan Division title, but NHL watchers seem to want to consider other candidates. One problem with that - theres no answer to the question: who else should win? The next time you want Crosby to be better, name someone who is.

          10 Years After She Went Missing, A Black Lab Is Returned To Her Owners      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
A dog named Abby is back from the dead. Abby, a black Lab mix, wandered away from her home in Apollo, Pa., outside Pittsburgh, 10 years ago. Abby's owner, Debra Suierveld, and her children looked for their dog but couldn't find her, accepted her loss and had her declared deceased. And then, 10 years later, they got a call from an animal shelter. "They said, 'We have your dog,' " Suierveld tells NPR's Scott Simon. "And I said, 'That's impossible.' " The shelter told her they had a female black Lab mix. Suierveld, who had gotten other dogs since Abby's disappearance — including another black Lab — said her dog was at home. But the shelter had run the dog's identification microchip — and her name was Abby, they said. Suierveld was shocked. "I was like, 'Abby?' I said, 'I haven't seen her for 10 years,' " Suierveld says. Once Abby rejoined their family, it was almost as if she had never left. "She settled right it, I'd say," Suierveld says. "The first night, I have other dogs, and they

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




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




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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

It is really tough to pick an AFC Champion this season. I just don't see Jacks winning the Conference with Bortles at QB. I am not buying any team in the AFC West as winning the Conference either. Pittsburgh looks like they are on the verge of getting worse as each season passes too. Until proven otherwise, I still think the Patriots win the Conference. Nobody is strong enough to beat them plain and simple. I think their run is coming close to an end but they will still be Very Good to Great this season. -In the NFC, I think Philly will be Very Good but not Great. It's tough to Repeat. I like The Vikings and Rams alot. I think this is the year that the Vikings break through and win the NFC and the SB. I love their Defense and Coaching, also Cousins is an upgrade compared to Keenum at QB. Dalvin Cook will be back at RB as well. -My League MVP = Aaron Rodgers. The Packers won't win the NFC North Division as the Vikings will but they will still go 11-5 and be a Wildcard. Rodgers will put up huge numbers and get MVP IMO. -I have the Vikings at 12-4, Patriots 12-4 meeting in SB 53. Vikings come out winning. If that happens, losing 2 SB's in a row may be enough to make Brady want to call it quits? -Regarding the Colts, I have them finishing 9-7 and by the LUCK of the draw making the Playoffs as a 6th Seed in the AFC. Some 9-7 teams get in, some don't.

Without taking a side in the “is he worth it” discussion here.... This is my understanding... Pittsburgh has reportedly offered 5/70, 14 per. Bell reportedly wants 5/75, 15 per. But, even that is not the biggest hurdle to clear. Reportedly the Steelers have only guaranteed 33 mill. That’s less than 50 percent of the total offer. By comparison, Todd Gurley just received 4/60, 15 per year. But the key is the Rams guaranteed 45 mill. That’s 75 percent of the offer. The Rams have offered LESS total, 60 vs 70 and yet have guaranteed MORE, 45 vs 33. What the Rams did will make it harder for every other team with a top running back to agree on a deal. Good for the Rams. Everyone else now has to react, which us going to be much harder and more expensive.

          8/9 TRS-PNC Games: Candy No-No; Roof Shot; Firsts; A-Ram Attack; Game Stories      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
  • 1970 - Willie Stargell became the first player to hit a homer into the RF upper deck at the freshly minted TRS, drilling a shot off the Mets Ron Taylor. Pops would reach the top tier four times, with Bob Robertson and Bobby Bonilla also joining him from the Pirates. The Bucs won 8-3, with Luke Walker getting the victory. Willie and Manny Sanguillen, with a pair of doubles, each had two hits as the Pirates sent Nolan Ryan to defeat. 
  • 1976 - The 500th game in Three Rivers Stadium history turned out to be one of its more memorable contests as John Candelaria threw the first no-hitter by a Pirates' pitcher in Pittsburgh, a 2-0 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Candy Man gave up a walk with a couple of errors committed behind him, and survived his only jam, a bases-loaded pickle in the third. It was a fitting showcase performance; the Pirate promotion for the game was “Candy Nite” with all the fans getting a candy bar for the ABC National Game of the Week. 
  • 1984 - The Pirates romped over the Mets at Shea Stadium by a 11-0 count. The Bucs iced the game early with an eight-run second frame, with just five singles as their ante. The Mets filled the rest of the pot with four walks and an error (to go with a wild pitch and stolen base). Pittsburgh did have the bats going, banging out 14 hits over the game with every starter, including P Rick Rhoden, collecting at least a knock. Johnny Ray collected four raps and Tony Pena chased home three runs in a case of overkill; Rhoden tossed a complete game two-hitter. 
  • 1986 - The Pirates pounded out six doubles, and led by Johnny Ray, they outpunched the St. Louis Cards 8-5 at Busch Stadium. Ray had three hits, including a homer and double, scored twice and drove in three runs. Bobby Bonilla, Mike Diaz and Ray touched the plate six times, and Barry Bonds, Tony Pena and Ray chased seven runs home to give Bob Walk the win. The victory was hidden vigorish at its best - the Pirates hadn’t won at Busch Stadium since September 14th, 1984 while the Cardinals had an 11-game home winning streak on the line. 
Al Pedrique 1988 Score
  • 1987 - The Expos Neal Heaton was in charge, entering the eighth with a 3-1 lead over the Bucs at TRS. The Al Pedrique singled and Darnell Coles doubled him home, bringing on Jeff Parrett. The first batter he faced was pinch hitter Andy Van Slyke, who drilled his third offering into the RF stands. Jim Gott made it hold up to give Mike Dunne the 4-3 win. Lotta firsts: it was AVS first pinch hit homer, Coles’ first hit as a Pirate and the first four-hit day of Pedrique’s career. Heaton, who got no decision, would be a Bucco before too long, joining the club in 1989. 
  • 2002 - The Bucs, behind Aramis Ramirez’s homer and four RBI, defeated the Giants 4-3 at Pacific Bell Park. Kip Wells defeated former Bucco Jason Schmidt for the win, but not before giving up Barry Bonds’ 600th home run. Barry’s first 176 dingers had come as a Pirate. 
  • 2012 - It was a big day for a couple of Bucco batters as Pittsburgh ran away from San Diego with an 11-5 victory at PNC Park. Light-hitting Clint Barmes drilled a grand slam and Neil Walker was unstoppable at the plate, going 5-for-5 with a walk and falling a triple shy of the cycle. Erik Bedard got the W, even though he lasted just five frames (four relievers put up zeroes behind him), and ex-Buc Ross Ohlendorf took the loss. 
  • 2013 - It wasn’t a very good day for the Bucs, who gave up nine runs in the first two innings on the way to a 10-1 drubbing at the hands of the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field. But it did plump up the pitching resume of utilityman Josh Harrison, who came in the eighth with two out and two runners aboard to get the last out, coaxing a fly out from future teammate Corey Dickerson. Harrison related to Bill Brink of the Post Gazette that Clint Hurdle told him “All right, I never thought I would have to have this talk with you here on the mound. Go get them." 
Cutch 2015 Donruss Panini Diamond Kings
  • 2015 - In front of a sellout crowd and a national ESPN “Sunday Night Baseball” audience, the Bucs roared back from a 5-1 deficit by scoring nine times in the seventh inning to earn a 13-6 victory over the NL-West leading LA Dodgers. Andrew McCutchen homered and had four RBI; Jung-Ho Kang and Fran Cervelli (who had three hits) also went long. Arquimedes Caminero got the win in relief of Charlie Morton. The Bucs swept the three game set against LA for the first time since 2000.

          8/9 Happenings: Possum Deal; Rabbit HoF; ASG: HBD Ted, Roman, Matty & Pat; More...      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
  • 1919 - The Pirates traded OF Casey Stengel to the Philadelphia Phillies for utilityman Possum Whitted after Stengel’s contract demands got him a ticket out of Pittsburgh. Possum batted .286 in 277 games for the Bucs through 1921, playing 1B, 3B & OF. The Old Professor lasted until 1925, but only started two more seasons. He hit .280 in his two Pirates campaigns. 
Possum Whitted Exhibits
  • 1930 - OF Roman Mejias was born in Abreus, Cuba. He was signed when the Pirates scouted him in 1953 when they held spring training in Havana. Mejias was a spare OF’er and pinch hitter for six seasons (1955, 1957-61) in Pittsburgh, hitting .245 over that span. He earned his way to Pittsburgh with a 55 game hitting streak for Class B Waco of the Big State League in 1954, where he ended the year with a .354 BA. Mejias couldn’t break into the Pirate OF of Bob Skinner, Bill Virdon and Roberto Clemente, but was selected by the Houston Colt .45s in the expansion draft and had his best season for them in 1962, batting .286 with 24 HR. 
  • 1949 - GM Ted Simmons was born in Highland Park, Michigan. Ted caught for two decades in the majors, and after he retired, Simmons was hired as general manager of the Pirates in 1992 after working in a front office job for St. Louis. He held the spot for just a year, retiring after suffering a heart attack in June 1993. Simmons was the GM who almost traded Barry Bonds. He had agreed to deal Bonds to the Atlanta Braves for P Alejandro Pena, OF Keith Mitchell and a PTBNL during camp in 1992, but had to back out when manager Jim Leyland blew up and stormed into president Carl Barger’s office, talking Barger into nixing the swap. The Pirates won a third division title under him, but Simmons was faced with Bonds and Doug Drabek becoming free agents and an ever-tightening payroll, no doubt adding to his stress. After he recovered, he went on to primarily scouting and player development jobs with a couple of bench coach gigs thrown in for several organizations. 
  • 1954 - SS Rabbit Maranville was inducted into the Hall of Fame after a 14-year wait. The sweet fielder played for Pittsburgh from 1921-24, hitting .283. Rabbit sadly passed away in January, so his long anticipated moment was posthumous. Rabbit’s given name was Walter; he earned his moniker because he was quick as a bunny thx to his speed and size (5’5”).

  • 1970 - RHP Pat Mahomes was born in Bryan, Texas. He began his 11-year career as a starter before being converted into a bullpen arm/spot starter and finished it in Pittsburgh in 2003, going 0-1, 4.84 in nine outings with most of his time spent in AAA Nashville. Pat got around; he worked for six teams in both leagues, pitched in the WS with the Mets in 1999, tossed a couple of seasons in Japan and closed out his career in the indie leagues. His son, Patrick II, is also using his arm, but as an NFL quarterback. Young Mahomes was a multi-sports star in high school like his pops and sported a mid-90s heater before opting for the gridiron. 
  • 1974 - RHP Matt Morris was born in Middletown, NY. Matty Mo was at the end of a solid career when the Pirates took over his hefty contract in 2007 by sending Rajai Davis to the SF Giants for him. Mo went 3-8, 7.04 in 16 Bucco starts from 2007-08 and was cut, leaving the Pirates approximately $10M in dead money and greasing the skids for then GM Dave Littlefield. 
  • 1981 - The NL squeaked out a 5-4 win over the AL in the All Star game at Cleveland Stadium. Dave Parker went 1-for-3 with a solo homer, Mike Easler 0-1 with a walk and a run, Bill Madlock 0-for-1 and Phil Garner came in as a defensive sub. The game was held at this late date (it was scheduled originally for July 14th) because of a six week players’ strike, but the fans held no grudges and were happy to see the boys of summer back as 72,086 jammed the ballyard. 
Dave Parker 1981 Topps All Star
  • 1995 - A little fun factoid from BR Bullpen: The Giants defeated the Pirates, 4-3 at Candlestick Park with the winning pitcher being William Van Landingham and the loser Jason Christiansen. The 25 letters in the surnames of the two pitchers of record were the most ever to factor in a major league decision. Christiansen had a chance to ice the game and avoid becoming a trivia answer but gave up a pair of runs in the seventh to earn a blown save/loss. 
  • 2012 - Pitching for the AAA Indianapolis Indians, lefty Justin Wilson tossed his second no-hitter of the season, a rain shortened eight-inning gem against the Charlotte Knights. He walked one, K’ed five and was efficient, using only 86 pitches. Wilson was called up that year by the Pirates as a reliever and spent three seasons with Pittsburgh. After a stint in the AL, he’s now plying his bullpen trade with the Cubs.

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

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

Republicans Frustrate Compromise Efforts

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          【サッカー】 「少年少女のヘディングは禁止にすべき」、脳損傷の専門家が警鐘 (thread.length)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
【8月9日 AFP】サッカーのヘディングが脳に与えるダメージの議論が続く中、スポーツにおける脳損傷研究の第一人者が、18歳以下の少年少女のヘディングを禁止すべきだと述べ、話し合いにさらなる一石を投じている。

 若年層のヘディング禁止を提言したのは、アメリカンフットボールの選手と慢性外傷性脳症(CTE)の関係性を初めて明らかにしたベネット・オマル(Bennett Omalu)医師。医師は英BBCに対し、意見が反発に遭うのは覚悟の上だが、社会は進んでいくべきだと話した。

「18歳以下の若者にサッカーのヘディングをさせるべきではない。12歳から14歳には接触の少ないサッカーが必要で、そうしたタイプのサッカーを考案する必要がある。12歳から18歳の間は、プレー自体はともかくヘディングは禁止すべきだ」

「多くの人が反感を覚えるだろうが、科学は進歩している。人は時とともに変わっていき、社会も変化する。今こそ、これまでの常識のいくつかを変えるべきときだ」

 ナイジェリア生まれで米国に帰化したオマル医師は、米ナショナルフットボール(NFL)のピッツバーグ・スティーラーズ(Pittsburgh Steelers)でプレーしたマイク・ウェブスター(Mike Webster)氏の脳の検視解剖を2002年に行い、そこからCTEがNFL選手に与える影響を明らかにしていった。

 オマル医師は、ヘディング対策はプロでも必要だと考えており、「高速で移動する物体を頭部でコントロールしようとするのはナンセンス。ゆえに、プロのレベルでもヘディングは制限すべきだと確信している。危険だ」と話している。

 英国では、元プロサッカー選手のジェフ・アストル(Jeff Astle)氏が2000年代初頭にこの世を去った際、昔の重い革のボールをヘディングし続けたことによる脳損傷が死因だと結論づけられ、ヘディングの副作用が注目されるようになった。ウェストブロムウィッチ・アルビオン(West Bromwich Albion、WBA)などで16年間のプロ生活を送り、代表に選出されたこともあったアストル氏は、10年近く認知症に苦しんでいた。

 今年初めには別の元プロ選手の脳を家族が専門家に提供し、こちらもヘディングと関連した認知症の一種を患っていたと診断された。
1966年のW杯(World Cup)イングランド大会を制した元同国代表のマーティン・ピータース(Martin Peters)氏、ノビー・スタイルズ(Nobby Stiles)氏、故レイ・ウィルソン(Ray Wilson)氏ら、認知症と診断されている元有名選手は他にもいる。

 オマル医師は「人の脳は頭蓋骨の中に浮かぶ風船のようなもので、ヘディングは脳損傷につながる」と話している。「ボールを頭でたたくのは、脳を痛めつけているのと同じ。サッカーのプレー経験は脳損傷のリスクを高め、影響は年を取って認知症やCTEの傾向が出始めたときに表れる」 (

Daily News Links Are Below These Opening Questions And Warnings
How much carbon monoxide are you in when in any motor vehicle?

Did you know that many people do not measure the air they breathe.

After prevention there is no greater awareness than measurement.
Awareness leads to quick thinking. Measurement leads to quick action.

Are you in the know?

Do I know enough about carbon monoxide and carbon monoxide poisoning to justify never knowing how much is in the air I breathe every day, everywhere I go?”

There are some people who want to be notified of the presence of carbon monoxide at levels or concentrations as soon as the gas is present, at concentrations well below those that can instigate poor health symptoms but not be high enough levels to sound the CO alarm they own.

There are some people who do not want to push a button on their CO alarm to see what low, aggravating levels of the poison might be in their home, or anywhere.


The most recommended CO Alarm in U.S. is a high level alarm

Standard for Single and Multiple Station Carbon Monoxide Alarms

Carbon monoxide poisoning nearly kills Kokomo residents
Kokomo Tribune
Fire Chief Jason Gunning said when responders arrived, they learned the two residents there had been operating a gas generator in the basement after a vehicle crashed into a utility pole and around 8:30 p.m. Tuesday and knocked out the electricity to the house. - Gunning said the toxic air caused a woman at the residence to pass out on top of the stairs after coming up from the basement. A man there also reported feeling woozy, but was able to crawl out the back door and then re-enter the house through the front door to drag out the woman. (More to Read)

The following link takes you to a site with views from those who have been poisoned. The seriousness of carbon monoxide poisoning, the grief, suffering and disorientations experienced are clearly portrayed with the intent to help others and prevent future poisonings. With respect, please visit: Carbon Monoxide Survivor

What is in the air you are breathing right now?

What will you be doing today; walking into poison?
Who will be responsible for the air you breathe?
You may be the only person who can prevent your own poisoning.
We are all vulnerable to carbon monoxide exposure and poisoning.
Everyone has been poisoned by CO and will be poisoned again. The degree of the poisoning depends upon allowing yourself to be in a situation where someone else controls the air you breathe and the mechanisms for alarming notification.

Please read the alarm information on the package and in the instructions that come with the carbon monoxide alarm. Know that if it is a U.L. 2034 Listed product (or CSA 6.19 Listed), it is a high level alarm that has been tested to alarm no sooner than 70 PPM at the lowest (the alarm must resist for one hour when above this level) and when over 400 PPM before 15 minutes at the highest concentration, after resisting alarming for 4 minutes when over this level.

Know when your fire department and emergency responders begin wearing their breathing apparatus and what their civilian evacuation levels are for carbon monoxide; it may be as soon as the gas is present in your presence. Pregnant women, infants & children, people with heart & respiratory struggles, those suffering depression or chronic headaches and all people of vulnerable health should be alerted as soon as the gas begins to concentrate, around 10 PPM (parts per million) or lower.

You most likely need a low level carbon monoxide detector to sound off when carbon monoxide hazards are just beginning, not after you’ve been exposed to levels that make you have headaches, flu-like symptoms, increased tiredness, heart stresses or worse.

Do not take risks with carbon monoxide. Take responsibility for the air you breathe and the combustion systems you are responsible for. If you don’t do it for yourself, do it for others, unless you think $45.00, high level protection is good enough.

Help prevent injuries and deaths; don’t guess about carbon monoxide. Measure carbon monoxide for safety and knowledge. The more you test the more you learn. GET BUSY

U.S. Carbon Monoxide Laws for each state
National Conference of State Legislatures
As of March 2018, a majority of states have enacted statutes regarding carbon monoxide (CO) detectors, and another 11 have promulgated regulations on CO detectors. Alaska requires detectors approved by the state fire marshal be installed in all dwellings. Connecticut requires them in all new construction, as does New Hampshire, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Utah, Vermont, Washington and West Virginia. Florida also requires them in new construction, and in every room with a boiler. Minnesota passed a law requiring detectors in motor boats.

CO Detectors in U.S. Homes
27 states and the District of Columbia require carbon monoxide detectors in private dwellings via state statute: Alaska, California, Colorado, Connecticut, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia (via adoption of the International Residential Code), Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, Washington, West Virginia and Wisconsin. Certain states limit the installation to buildings with fossil-fuel burning devices, others only require the device be installed upon the sale of the property or unit.

Another 11 states require carbon monoxide detectors in private dwellings regulatorily through the adoption of the International Residential Code or via an amendment to their state’s building code: Alabama, Georgia, Idaho, Kentucky, Louisiana, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Virginia, and Wyoming.

CO Detectors in U.S. Schools
California, Connecticut, Illinois, Maine and Maryland require carbon monoxide (CO) detectors in school buildings.

CO Detectors in U.S. Hotels and Motels
Fourteen states require the installation of carbon monoxide detectors in hotels and motels under the statute. - Three of those states (New Jersey, Vermont and Wisconsin) have complementary administrative regulations. - Two states (Kansas and Washington) have requirements through administrative regulations alone.
