Toronto's transit is on the pricier side, but I don't think you can say that it is "extremely expensive" compared to US counterparts. A single trip is $3 CAD or about 2.25 USD and a monthly pass is 146.25 CAD or about $110 USD. Chicago's fares are 2.25 bus, 2.50 metro, and 105 for monthly pass. My city, Vancouver, seems to have fares similar to its peers, Seattle and Portland. A single bus trip is 2.30 CAD (1.75 USD), and a single metro or ferry trip is between 2.30 and 4.40 CAD (1.75 and 3.30 USD) depending on the number of zones. There is no transfer penalty between bus, ferry or metro. Monthly passes are also zoned and range between 95 and 174 CAD (71.25 and 130.5 USD). Seattle's single bus trips are 2.75 and light rail fares are between 2.25 and 3.25. Monthly passes are between 99 and 117. Monthly passes are more expensive in Vancouver, but you get much more service with three different metro lines compared to one light rail line in Seattle. Portland has lower fares, 2.50 for a single trip on bus or light rail and 100 for a monthly pass, but Portland's level of service is much lower than Vancouver's with consequently much lower ridership.

Drupal Europe

Reminder: Drupal Europe is coming up soon

Drupal Europe is coming up in less than 40 days! Drupal Europe will be the largest gathering of the Drupal community in Europe and is a reimagining of this important community event as both technical conference and family reunion. The Drupal Association engineering team will be attending to connect with the community, provide updates on Drupal.org, and listen to some of the incredible speakers who will be in attendance.

Join the community in Darmstadt, Germany, from September 10-14, 2018. Make sure to register, book your travel, and secure accommodation: http://drupaleurope.org/

We want your feedback on ideas for Drupal Core

The Drupal Association has proposed several initiatives for Drupal Core - but before they can be officially adopted they need feedback from stakeholders in the community (even if it's just a "+1") and to reach community RTBC. Here are the proposals:

Drupal.org Updates

Staff retreat

In July the Drupal Association gathered together in Portland Oregon for our bi-annual staff retreat. At these retreats we discuss the progress made in the last six months, and our prioritization as an organization going into the next six month period.

Hightech users of Drupal

Hightech industry page launched

Drupal is the CMS of choice for a variety of companies in the high tech space, including organizations like Redhat, Cisco, and Tesla. Whether it is used in a front-facing application, as a decoupled back-end, or for an internal intranet experts in hightech defer to Drupal's example for their needs.

We launched a new industry page featuring these stories from high tech in July.

Drupal.org API updated for security advisories

To improve the automated toolchains built by organizations and individuals in the community to watch for new security advisories, we've updated the Security Advisory API. One of these changes ensures that the full canonical identifier for each advisory is included in the API data, which is a small but valuable change for anyone monitoring the API for advisory information.

Social Media Sharing for Events News

The DrupalCon news feed now includes social media sharing icons, so that you can better promote DrupalCon news and announcements to your networks. Word of mouth has always been a critical part of Drupal's success - so we hope that as featured speakers are announced, early bird registration begins, or the schedule is published, you will help us get the word out!

DrupalCon Seattle is coming up from April 8-12 2019, and we're featuring some bold new changes to support a variety of audiences from our traditional core of those people who build Drupal, to marketers and content editors, and to the agency sales forces that sell Drupal to the world.

———

As always, we’d like to say thanks to all the volunteers who work with us, and to the Drupal Association Supporters, who make it possible for us to work on these projects. In particular we want to thank:

If you would like to support our work as an individual or an organization, consider becoming a member of the Drupal Association.

Good on you Port Fairy. Now if only we could get their conservative Warrnambool cousins to do likewise. The South West is home to frequent wind and should be doing everything it can to harness. Yes, turbines are installed at Yambuk, Codrington, Portland, Cape Bridgewater, Sir William Grant and other areas but geeez there is so much more that could be done. Its like denying the resource exists for the sake of aesthetics. Warrnambool and the South West are home to staunch conservatism and that's reflected in its general attitude to renewables (except for Port Fairy). The only proposal the local MLA has come up is an idea to build (wait for it) a Nuclear Power generation facility at the deep water port of Portland. It would be interesting to note how the Biopower tidal trial fared and would be even more interesting to find out if it ran successfully enough to progress to the next level. The South West is not only blessed with a wonderful wind resource but a wild Southern Ocean lapping its shores. Opportunities abound but for those who are prepared to be bold.

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

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

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

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

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

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


From Wounded Knee to “Termination”

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

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

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

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

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

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


The Conditions that Gave Rise to Red Power

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


The Birth of the American Indian Movement

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


The Occupation of Wounded Knee

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


Repression and Decline

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


          Solidarity against a fascist attack in London      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

On August 4, a group of far-right thugs attacked the Bookmarks socialist bookstore in London. Approximately a dozen people — some wearing “Make Britain Great Again” hats and carrying placards reading “British Bolshevik Cult,” and one in a Donald Trump mask — ransacked the store’s displays, ripping and tearing books and magazines.

One staff member told the Independent, “Books on Islamophobia were ridiculed and thrown around. They chanted about Muslims and pedophilia, and called us traitors.” The attackers also made threats to return and “show what they can do.” They were so confident that they even filmed themselves before the attack, describing their plans for the “ambush,” as one called it.

Bookmarks is the largest socialist store in Britain and the official bookseller for the Trades Union Congress. As manager Dave Gilchrist said following the attack: “This horrific attack on a radical bookshop should send shivers down the spine of anyone who knows their history. The Nazis targeted books because they knew how important radical ideas are for challenging racism and fascism. The same is true today, and that is why we have to unite and show that we won’t be intimidated.”

In the statement below, the International Socialist Organization, publisher of Socialist Worker, expresses its solidarity with Bookmarks in the face of this fascist assault.

THE INTERNATIONAL Socialist Organization condemns the August 4 attack on the Bookmarks bookshop in London and expresses our solidarity with Bookmarks, its staff and its customers.

In a period in which far right is growing both here in the U.S. and internationally, the ability of the left to come together in solidarity to challenge the politics of hate and division is key.

The attack by a group of thugs wearing “Make Britain Great Again” hats, and one in a Trump mask, took obvious inspiration from the current U.S. president and his politics of bigotry, division and violence. As the infamous photos of Nazis burning books in the 1930s remind us, attacks on left-wing books and literature have long been a feature of the far right, which sees left-wing ideas — in particular socialist ideas — as a threat to be smashed.

It has been discovered that at least several of those involved in the attack are members of the far-right UK Independence Party. In response, UKIP suspended three members. This disingenuous move does nothing to stop the climate of racist scapegoating, immigrant-bashing and anti-left sentiment that UKIP’s politics are built on fostering.

The far right uses the pretense of “free speech” to spread its bigoted ideas, but as the attack on Bookmarks shows, it wants to terrorize the left into silence.

We saw that here in the U.S. one year ago in Charlottesville, Virginia, when the fascists tried to take the streets. Their car attack on anti-racist marchers injured a number of people and took the life of Heather Heyer. In recent days, the far right has again attempted to regroup and march — holding rallies in Portland, Oregon, and Berkeley, California, and planning for a “White Civil Rights Rally” in Washington, D.C., on the anniversary of Charlottesville.

Here in the U.S., we take heart from the mass protests organized in Britain and elsewhere when Trump recently visited, and from the ongoing work in defense of migrant and refugee rights, against Islamophobia and to oppose fascists and the right. Here in the U.S., we seek to build a strong united front against fascism wherever such forces attempt to march and grow.

We will not allow their hate to spread unopposed.

We stand in solidarity with Bookmarks and with all who are fighting the threat of the far right. We are inspired by the large outpouring of solidarity with the bookstore following the attack, and support of Bookmarks’ plans for its August 11 public solidarity event.

          City Audit Unsurprisingly Finds Majority of Portland Airbnb Hosts Shirk City Regulations      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
by Alex Zielinski

ARDA SAVAŞCIOĞULLARI/ GETTY IMAGES PLUS

A new city audit has revealed that the vast majority of Portlanders who rent out their homes through Airbnb, HomeAway, or other short-term rental companies are shirking the city's regulations.

As of October 2017, auditors estimated that nearly 80 percent of all listed rentals were operating without the mandatory city permit. More than 97 percent of all rentals offering three or more bedrooms lacked a permit (kudos to the 13 people that registered). Not only does the audit show that Portland's 4-year-old regulations on short-term rentals aren't being followed, it found that it's nearly impossible for the city to enforce them. That's largely because companies like Airbnb don't require their hosts to apply for a permit before listing a rental, nor do they share any data on their listings with the city.

But, for city officials and housing advocates, this news doesn't necessarily come as a surprise

"Without data, the original version of the rules is completely unenforceable," says Marshall Runkel, chief of staff for Comissioner Chloe Eudaly.

Eudaly's office oversees the Bureau of Development Services (BDS), the bureau tasked with regulating these short-term rentals. However, since none of the 15 rental companies that operate in Portland regularly share data with BDS, it's impossible for the city to know which homes or condos are being used as short-term rentals, let alone who owns them and if they have a permit. The city essentially relies on the benevolence a host to apply for a permit (which can cost $178 for a host renting one or two bedrooms or $5,000 for a house with three or more bedrooms) before renting out their home. But without actual repercussions in place for skipping that step, it's hard to blame hosts for shirking on their permits.

The more serious problem, according to Runkel, is the city's inability to regulate what it calls "commercial" short-term rental outfits—or, people who manage several different listings across the city. Those hosts are blatantly breaking one of Portland's short-term rental rules: that a host must occupy the residence at least nine months of the year. Once the city gets data from those companies, Runkel says, "it's not going to be very hard to find out who those commercial providers are."

But first, those companies must hand over their data. According to Portland's Director of Revenue Thomas Lannom, the city is currently in negotiations with short-term rental companies to get them to start sharing data with the city, a requirement that other larger cities like San Francisco have mandated.

In an email to the Mercury, Lannom writes that while "there are no substantive disagreements about what information to share" between the city and companies, it's unclear when data-sharing will begin. In Lannom's words: "Soon."

City council passed short-term rental regulations in 2014, even though they didn't have access to the data needed to enforce the new rules or calculate their impact. Should they have waited until rental companies agreed to share that data before passing the ordinance?

"No, definitely not," says Katrina Holland, director of Oregon Community Alliance of Tenants (CAT). "This is one of those situations where we have no choice but to act, because the housing crisis is so incredibly traumatic."

Holland says that the city and community organizations like CAT already have enough anecdotal data to prove that there's a need for immediate regulations on all aspects of housing—including short-term rentals. Many renters have reported getting a no-cause eviction by a landlord who wanted to turn their apartment or room into an Airbnb. It's that kind of qualitative data that can inspire urgently-needed city policies, even when quantitate data is lacking, Holland says.

She compares this process to when her father was treated for sepsis.

"He came in [to the hospital] with all the physical signs of sepsis. No, they didn't necessarily have all the tests back to clearly identify what bacteria had invaded his bloodstream," Holland says. "But they gave him antibiotics because they knew it was going save his life."

CAT and other tenants' rights organizations have long pushed the city to collect housing data—not just on short-term rentals, but on permanent rentals, on how rents are changing over time, how many people receive no-cause evictions, and a number of other metrics. Now, the city appears to be catching on, slowly.

In July, city commissioners approved a new program that would require all landlords register their properties with the city and be subject to routine inspections. Ideally, this system would give the city a better idea of how many rental units are on the market and track negligent landlords.

Today's audit may expedite to the current city negotiations with companies to start collecting data.

"CAT and Mayor Wheeler... we have our differences," Holland says. "But one thing we definitely agree on is that there's a significant lack of data collection. And we need that."

          Managers of unlicensed guesthouses fined      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
     Two men were charged with contravening the Hotel and Guesthouse Accommodation Ordinance at the Kowloon City Magistrates' Courts today (August 8). A man was sentenced to two months' imprisonment, suspended for two years, and fined $12,000. The other man was fined $8,000.

     The courts heard that in July last year and February this year, officers of the Office of the Licensing Authority (OLA), the Home Affairs Department, inspected two suspected unlicensed guesthouses on Shanghai Street and Portland Street in Mong Kok. During the inspections, the OLA officers posed as lodgers and successfully rented rooms in these guesthouses on a daily basis.

     According to the OLA's records, these guesthouses did not possess licences under the Ordinance on the days of inspection. The men responsible for managing the premises were charged with contravening section 5(1) of the Ordinance.

     A department spokesman stressed that operating or managing an unlicensed guesthouse is a criminal offence and will lead to a criminal record. Upon conviction, the offender is liable to a maximum fine of $200,000 and two years' imprisonment.
            
     The spokesman appealed to anyone with information about suspected unlicensed guesthouses to report it to the OLA through the hotline (Tel: 2881 7498), by email (hadlaenq@had.gov.hk), by fax (2504 5805) using the report form downloaded from the OLA website (www.hadla.gov.hk), or through the mobile application "Hong Kong Licensed Hotels and Guesthouses".

Summer is the time for beer and lots of it, and that's exactly what you can expect at this year's Witchstock ― an all-you-can-drink beer festival happening next month in Toronto.

Bellwoods Brewery is back with its annual beer festival that will feature a ton of brewers from all over Canada and beyond. Notably, it offers unlimited beer samples throughout each three hour session. 

This ain't no buck-a-beer-a-thon, though, as tickets are a hefty $120 per session. And unless you can drink 120 beer samples in three hours (don't do that), the price tag has generated some concern over whether it's worth it.

Aside from the cost, it might be worth it to try beer from almost 30 brewers, including Québec's À la Fût, Bissell Brothers from Portland and Cantillon from Belgium, to name a few, while food and merch will also be available on site.

As for Bellwoods, they're encouraging folks to drink responsibly and to eat plenty of food. They've also outlined that servers will be keeping an eye on everyone and cannot legally serve "anyone visibly intoxicated."

It's all going down September 29 at Bellwoods Brewery's location on Hafis Road.

          #Doughnutgate: Online conspiracy theorists target Oregon donut shop with Pizzagate-like claims      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   


Melissa Joskow / Media Matters

A rising far-right conspiracy theory claims that a popular donut shop in Portland, OR, Voodoo Doughnuts, is a front for child trafficking. As of this writing, a YouTube video featuring the claim has more than 63,000 views, while the hashtag #donutgate appears to be gaining traction on Twitter. The allegation is an echoand an offshoot of Pizzagate, a conspiracy theory President Donald Trump supporters popularized during the 2016 election cycle, which baselessly claimed Democratic politicians operated a pedophilia ring from Washington, D.C. pizzeria Comet Ping Pong.

On August 4, a man named Michael Whelan, known on Twitter as VeganMikey went on Nathan Stolpman’s YouTube channel Lift the Veil to share an incident after, according to him, he “was made aware of people that were participating in sexual abuse and trafficking of children in the city of Portland, OR.” Stolpman claimed the incident was connected to the owner of Portland’s Voodoo Doughnuts and that they were going to “be linking this to Comet Pizza as well.”

Whelan said he had been “eyewitness to children taken back” at a party at the home of Tres Shannon, the owner of Voodoo Donuts, where “there was abuse of children going on.” Whelan also claimed people within the alleged ring “had worked at Comet,” linking his allegations to Pizzagate.

In the video, both Whelan and Stolpman credited Isaac Kappy for talking about pedophilia rings as an inspiration for others to go public with similar allegations. Whelan also directly addressed Kappy asking him to “help the people on the ground level of this happening.” Kappy is a minor actor and QAnon enthusiast who was among the conspiracy theorists claiming on videos that Hollywood celebrities like Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg were involved in pedophilia rings. As a result, searches on YouTube last week for Hanks and Spielberg were momentarily dominated by videos of the wild conspiracy theories. Kappy’s allegations were too extreme even for conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, who hosted Kappy on Infowars and asked him to restrain his wide-ranging accusations by avoiding “getting into names,” a precaution possibly linked to the defamation lawsuits Jones is currently battling for his own conspiracy theories.

Kappy promoted the Lift the Veil video to his followers during a Periscope session in which he also gave oxygen to the wild QAnon-related absurd claim that John F. Kennedy Jr. is, in fact, alive and behind the anonymous Q posts, saying “that would be the jaw-dropper of the century” if Kennedy Jr. was alive.

The claims about Voodoo donuts have reached Reddit, where users have shared Stolpman’s video within a QAnon subreddit. On the online message board 4chan -- from where many hoaxes and harassment campaigns often originate -- users appear to be actively organizing a campaign against the donut shop focused on distributing flyers containing the unsubstantiated claims.

Such campaigns can have dangerous real-life consequences. Despite the fact there is no evidence to substantiate Pizzagate, a man inspired by the wild conspiracy theory showed up at the restaurant to self-investigate and opened fire.

One YouTube video linked Sen. Bernie Sanders (D-VT) to the conspiracy theory while a website peddling in Pizzagate tried to link evangelist Franklin Graham to the supposed crime ring.

The claims regarding Voodoo Doughnuts earlier appeared on YouTube in late 2016 and early 2017, when multiple uploaded videos focused on the allegations. One recurring allegation was that designs on certain doughnuts were secret references to changelings and pedophilia:

The allegations were also made on a dating forum in early December 2016, with the poster citing “Patriot News.”

This time around, these allegations have received much wider attention following Kappy’s endorsement. An analysis on the hashtag tracker Keyhole shows that tweets containing #doughnutgate are now gaining traction and its impressions have reached more than 826,477 users; tweets for #donutgate have reached an additional 186.623 users. According to Keyhole, the major related hashtags that appear next to #doughnutgate are #pizzagate and #pedogate.

Media Matters reached out to Voodoo Doughnuts and will be updating this piece if the donut shop responds.

    Cascade Brewing Announces Release of Framblanc 2017 on Draft and in 500ml BottlesFrom Cascade:

    PORTLAND, OR . (August 8, 2018) – Cascade Brewing will release its Framblanc 2017 project on Friday, August 17. Framblanc is a blend of sour blond ales aged for up to 14 months in oak wine barrels with more than 3,500 pounds of white raspberries. Fresh flavors of raspberries, green grapes, white peaches and pears earned Framblanc the gold medal at the 2017 Oregon Beer Awards. The 2017 project will be available on draft and in 500ml bottles. The beer is 8.4 percent ABV.

    “The warm 2017 growing season produced beautifully ripened raspberries that contributed lots of fresh fruit flavor in this blend, making this project year one of the most expressive we’ve ever released,” explained Kevin Martin, Head of Brewing Operations for Cascade Brewing.
    This marks the third 500ml bottle release for Cascade Brewing, on the heels of Kriek 2017 and Apricot 2017. The brewery switched from 750ml bottles to the new size with a commensurate price point; according to Cascade Brewing VP of Sales and Marketing Tim Larrance, the change has been very effective in increasing sales velocity.
    Framblanc is a tier two offering, with pricing based on the style of beer, the type of ingredients contained within, the time aged in the barrels, and types of barrels used. It will be available at Cascade’s two Portland-area pubs – Cascade Brewing Barrel House and The Lodge at Cascade Brewing – and through the brewery's worldwide distribution network.
    The next scheduled Cascade Brewing release will be the introduction of 500ml Rose City Sour in September.

    They are only supposed to be there to maintain public safety, and I can't help but believe that their actions are colored by their own personal biases, political or otherwise. Most of them are getting paid good overtime wages to be there, getting to bust a few lefty heads is just an added bonus.

    Embracing phones = embracing fans. It's fun to take pics / vids to share on social media. Encourage hashtags and make it a positive thing! Shaming phone use is not the way forward, in my opinion. Let people decide if they want to be "present" or whatever. If your performance is amazing, all eyes (and phones) will be on you, anyway.

    This weekend, Portlandholds its annual Pride Parade . The lineup is packed with everyone from Pacific Northwest legend Darcelle XV to LGBTQ+ organizations and lots of local businesses. Closing the parade, in the 167th and final spot, will be the Border Riders Motorcycle Club , one of the largest and longest-running motorcycle clubs for gay men in North America. The club was founded in 1969, the same year as the Stonewall riots in New York City. But for Jeff Booth, who grew up across the country in Portland, the uprising wasnt initially big news. It was off my radar, Booth said. I was only 19, barely out of high school. And I personally was not aware of things at that time. Growing up gay in the 1950s and 1960s wasnt easy for Booth. He said he knewas a child that he was gay, but he also realized early onpeople around him would not have responded positivelyif he came out. Its a matter of always having to hide, always having to conceal, never really being who you are, Booth said. ... with

    Nick Sheehy’s “Swarm” at Talon Gallery.

    Currently on view at Talon Gallery in Portland, Oregon is artist Nick Sheehy’s solo exhibition of excellent new paintings entitled, “Swarm.”

    For “Swarm,” the Gallery explains, “he continues to explore his development into the world of color with mixed media paintings. This has been a gradual process and these paintings represent another step on a journey away from the monochrome works, a palette which he says remind him of death, morning and loss, toward a fuller albeit still unnerving atmosphere. Exploring themes around conflict and constraint, aggression and repression, greed and destruction, Sheehy is not only commenting on his own experience, in what he describes as semi-autobiographical works, but also on our innate nature.”

    Swarm” will be on view until September 2nd, 2018.

              Mayor Wheeler Unveils New Bureau Assignments      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    by Alex Zielinski

    1525882734-portlandcityhall_640edited.jpg
    City of Portland

    It's that time again: Mayor Ted Wheeler has redistributed (some of) the city's bureaus among his fellow city commissioners. It's one of the few responsibilities that sets Wheeler apart from the rest of city council, thanks to our city's "weak mayor" form of government. It's also a patently bizarre tradition, but now's not the time for that debate. Here's the list of new assignments.

    Two of Wheeler's biggest changes: Assigning himself the Bureau of Development Services (BDS), which was originally in Commissioner Chloe Eudaly's portfolio, and moving the Office of Equity and Human Rights from his office to Comissioner Amanda Fritz.

    Wheeler already raised eyebrows in 2017 when he didn't assign the Housing Bureau to incoming commissioner Eudaly, whose election campaign was rooted in fair housing and tenant's rights. But Eudaly has been able to flex her housing muscle through BDS, the bureau that issues building permits and enforces building codes.

    Not any longer. In a press release announcing the reassignments, Wheeler spokesperson Sophia June explained that the mayor has assigned all "major planning bureaus" to himself in hopes of streamlining development projects.

    Eudaly has been newly assigned to the Portland Bureau of Transportation—which is currently under outgoing Comissioner Dan Saltzman's watch. Eudaly will continue to oversee the Office of Community and Civic Life (formally Office of Neighborhood Involvement).

    Wheeler's decision to shed the Office of Equity and Human Rights will likely disappoint community equity advocates—especially those who believe the mayor's office holds the most power. But the decision to hand the bureau over to Fritz makes sense, based on history alone. According to Office of Equity spokesperson Jeff Selby, Fritz was the original commissioner to suggest to then-Mayor Sam Adams that the office exist in the first place. Since Adams created the office in 2011, Fritz has been a vocal advocate of the office's work.

    "She has offered unwavering support of our office since its inception," says Selby.

    A few less-notable assignments: Portland Parks and Recreation reassigned from Fritz to Comissioner Nick Fish, Portland Water Bureau moved from Fish to Fritz. Fritz will also be in charge of the Bureau of Hydroelectric Power which I didn't know existed and now I am very interested in.

    Wheeler handed all "non-police public safety bureaus" to Saltzman, and noted that his replacement will be expected to take on those assignments in January.

    “These bureau assignments link the daily management of the city with a vision for the future of Portland as an equitable, sustainable, and economically vibrant city,” Wheeler said in the press release. The new assignments will take effect on September 4.

              Portland Police Arrest Two Protesters at City Hall      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    by Kelly Kenoyer

    Two people protesting police brutality during a Portland City Council meeting were arrested this morning after refusing to leave.

    The protesters were part of a larger group that came to protest how the Portland Police Bureau (PPB) handled last weekend's Patriot Prayer rally, which ended with the cops tossing flash bang grenades at counter-protesters. At least two people who suffered serious injuries from those munitions came to testify before council.

    The group interrupted the weekly council meeting with loud chants—eventually forcing city commissioners to hold the meeting in another room in the building. Police arrived and arrested two protesters who refused to leave the second floor. Both people were arrested on second degree trespassing charges.


    While this was going on upstairs, city hall security guards were attempting to wrangle the rest of the protesters out of the building. It wasn't easy. Protesters allegedly called guards "Nazis" and demanded the guards let them speak with Mayor Ted Wheeler. According to the Oregonian, one of the guards was repeatedly hit in the head with a megaphone.

    According to a PPB press release, two security guards were assaulted during the confrontation on the first floor, though neither sustained serious injuries.

    This is the second incident in two months where a protester injured a security guard during a Portland City Council session.

    There are two important things that you learn about Michael Zusman, baker and co-author of The Artisan Jewish Deli at Home, when you bake with him. First, his real job has nothing to do with bread or writing recipes: He's a trial judge. "Full time," Zusman says. "Wear a black robe every day." Zusman presides from the bench in Portland, Ore. He handles drug cases, small claims disputes over shoddy car repairs, fights between landlords and tenants, and other daily battles that overload America's legal system. But he had a few days off and visited Washington, D.C. And Zusman made some of the best bialys I've ever had, right in my own kitchen. In case you've never had a bialy, it looks like a miniature pizza, topped with roasted onions and poppy seeds. Bagels are far more famous in the annals of Eastern European Jewish cooking, but plenty of people feel passionate about bialys. They got their name as a favorite food in Bialystok, a major city in what's now Poland. Zusman and his co-author

    That would be a more accurate time frame. We moved to North Dakota 20 years ago this summer to find less Willamette Valley-style hub-bub. At that time, the pace here was much like Oregon in the 1950's. The 'oil boom' changed all that, but we still have our little niche of unspoiled farmland a few miles east of the Missouri River. I do miss Oregon's natural beauty and the way Portland was in those years growing up there.

    "Patrick Littles 'Name The Jew' Tour Spreading Anti-Semitism Nationwide" By jewess Alyssa Fisher for the jew publication, Forward - [August 8, 2018] "Before he moves to northern Idaho in mid-August with plans of establishing a “regional capital,” neo-Nazi former Senate candidate Patrick Little has embarked on a cross-country tour he calls “Name The Jew,” where he spews anti-Semitic propaganda at passers-by, according to the Anti-Defamation League. --- Throughout his tour, which began in July, he has carried a sign that reads, “Jews Rape Kids.” Generally people ignored him, the ADL reported, but one person threw a soda can at his direction while another yelled, “F—- you.” His tour will have had stops in at least 10 cities, including Portland, Seattle, Fargo and Minneapolis. He unsuccessfully attempted to enter Canada, and now he says he plans to visit New York City, or the “the vipers’ nest,” the ADL reported. Little visited the North Dakota State Fair, Brown University in Rhode Island and the Illinois Holocaust Museum and Education Center. He livestreamed most of his “J Walks” and encouraged viewers to fund his efforts. He’ll end the tour in Sandpoint, Idaho, where he wants to create a “regional capital.” Residents have received anti-Semitic robocalls fueling his message. “America has a Jewish problem,” Little says at the start of the call, as the theme song from “Friends” plays in the background. “To the people of Sandpoint, Bonner County, North Idaho: My name is Patrick Little, and I’ll be arriving shortly to make Sandpoint one of my new regional capitals throughout the country. This area has a reputation as a home to people with the moral courage to recognize the consequences of diversity.” https://forward.com/fast-forward/407707/patrick-littles-name-the-jew-tour-spreading-anti-semitism-nationwide/

              Two People Arrested During Protest at Portland City Hall Wednesday (Photo)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    On Wednesday, August 8, 2018, at approximately 11:00 a.m., Central Precinct officers responded to Portland City Hall, located at 1221 Southwest 4th Avenue, on the report that protesters had violated Portland City Council rules and refused to leave when directed to so by Portland City Hall security staff.

    When officers arrived at Portland City Hall, they contacted security officers. The security officers informed the responding police officers that protesters on the third floor of City Hall were told to leave the premises, but refused to leave. The police officers arrived at the third floor of Portland City Hall and observed a group of protesters with two people lying on the ground. The protesters were informed by Portland City Hall security they were trespassed from the building and that if they refused to leave, they would be arrested. The protesters that were lying on the floor did not leave and they were taken into custody without incident.

    Portland City Hall security officers also requested police officers respond to the main level of City Hall. City Hall security instructed protesters located inside Portland City Hall and near the east entrance of the building to exit the facility. As protesters were directed out of the building, two City Hall security officers were assaulted. One protester was seen throwing a glass jar to the ground as the group was directed out of Portland City Hall.

    Neither of the security officers suffered injuries that required medical transport by ambulance. Officers were not able to take the suspect who reportedly assaulted City Hall security officers today. At this time, no arrests have been made in connection to the assault. Officers were also contacted and will write a report after a protester reported being "elbowed" by a security officer.

    Both people arrested at City Hall this afternoon were lodged at the Multnomah County Jail. One of those arrested has been identified as 67-year-old Diane Keeauver. Keeauver was lodged on a charge of Trespass in the Second Degree. The other person arrested at Portland City Hall has not been identified and was lodged at the jail as "John Doe" on a charge of Trespass in the Second Degree.

    The investigation into today's events continues. Anyone with information about this incident or the identity of the suspect who assaulted the City Hall security staff, should contact the Portland Police Bureau non-emergency line at 503-823-3333.

              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.

              Cleveland Cavaliers absent from NBA's Opening Week, Christmas Day national TV schedule      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    The Cavs, who appeared on national TV a whopping 39 times during the 2017-18 regular season, are notably absent.

    CLEVELAND, Ohio -- LeBron James is gone. So is the NBA's interest in the Cleveland Cavaliers. 

    The league released part of its regular season schedule on Wednesday afternoon, unveiling the national television lineup for Opening Week, Christmas Day and Martin Luther King Jr. Day -- the NBA's three marquee slates. 

    The Cavs, who appeared on national TV a whopping 39 times during the 2017-18 regular season, are notably absent. 

    Normally a day reserved for the league's best teams or brightest stars, the Cavs will not be playing on Christmas for the first time in four years, a timeline that coincided with James' return to Cleveland in the summer of 2014.

    There will be no game for the Cavs on MLK Day either, as the Milwaukee Bucks, New York Knicks, Boston Celtics and Philadelphia 76ers will represent the Eastern Conference on that day. 

    The first week of the season features 15 teams in the national TV spotlight. The Cavaliers are not one of them. 

    It remains to be seen how much national coverage they will receive this season, as the remainder of the schedule has not yet come out. Still, it's clear that James being in Los Angeles has taken the focus away from Cleveland and sent the reigning Eastern Conference champions into national TV obscurity. 

    Opening Night is scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 16. The season starts with the Celtics hosting the 76ers. To cap the night, the Golden State Warriors will receive their championship rings before playing the Oklahoma City Thunder. 

    James' new team will get plenty of time in the spotlight. The Lakers are scheduled to play twice on national TV during the first week. They travel to Portland on Thursday, Oct. 18 -- the second game of TNT's doubleheader and the first game for James in the purple and gold. Two days later, James' Lakers will host the Houston Rockets -- one of the four teams he considered in free agency -- at 10:30 p.m. on ESPN. 

    As has been the case for the last three years, James' December get-together with rival Golden State is scheduled for Christmas. The Lakers-Warriors will be the fourth game on Dec. 25.

    The other Christmas games are Milwaukee vs. New York, Oklahoma City-Houston, Boston playing host to Philadelphia and Blazers-Jazz. 

    James will also get top billing on MLK Day, as Los Angeles hosts Golden State to cap the star-studded night.

Newly built multi-use residential buildings have sprouted up in CoHo's Slabtown neighborhood, but who can afford to live in them?

    Sorry to take up two IA spaces, but we might really HAVE to take to the streets to protect the Mueller investigation, to protect the integrity of the ballot box, to force Trump to concede to election results and leave office rather than appointing himself for life, etc. I hate that you're burning up time, money, and resources to protest the existence of fuckheadz who are just USING you. Far from stopping the creep of authoritarianism or fascism or racism, you are contributing to it by showing up to play the boogie-woogie man. Why don't you have an Antifa rally someplace nice, break out the bubbly and the frisbees, take a break? Even the FBI informants among you can be nice people sometimes.

    OK, so there's a professional right-wing female in town — platinum hair, carrot for a nose, two glittering coals for eyes, Bowie-level glam make-up — trolling hard for the negative attentions of the professional protesters of Portland. What I've seen of her on YouTube is fucking stupid, BUT YOU CARE SO HARD! You're going to turn out in the heat, charge through the fouled air into the city streets to stop traffic. You're going to throw urine- and feces-filled balloons at the police. You're going to get hurt and cause hurt and waste my time and money. WHY DO YOU FEED THE TROLLS? Without your tender mercies, she's got nothin'. WHY DO YOU ACT LIKE PAVLOVIAN DOGS? Weed not meth, kidz.

    How do these dumb asses "taking over" City Hall expect to be treated seriously and have their voices heard when they have a total disregard for the rules, act like children, start fights with security personnel and shout down the Mayor and other elected officials?

    One suspects they might be the same crowd who were wearing masks and homemade body armor "counter-protesting" over the weekend.

    Don't these people have jobs?

              Re: As Berkeley prepares for Sunday rallies, police warn: ‘We will be making arrests’      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    In all of these instances in Berkeley, the out of town organizers have refused to get a permit. They invite dozens, (sometimes hundreds,) of other out of town people to join them, because they don't like the "liberal values" they think Berkeley represents. The entire point of their event is to come agitate Berkeley, or Portland, Seattle, Boston and other towns they have been doing this in.

    The local residents can't use our downtown area or parks when things are shut off to accommodate out of town agitators, and then we get stuck paying the bill for damages and police. If a local community group wanted to hold an event in the park, they would need to fill out forms which outline the nature of the event, how many planned to attend and what accommodations they have made for adequate security, ADA access, restrooms, etc., then show ID to verify who they are, get an insurance certificate to cover any injury or damages--which can be gotten through the city, all within a time frame and wait to have it approved.

    Out of town agitators refuse to take responsibility and our city keeps bending over backwards to accommodate them at the expense and inconvenience of people who live here.

              Auftakt-Hammer! Schröder muss gegen Warriors ran       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Mitte Oktober startet die neue Saison, doch schon jetzt hat die NBA Teile des Spielplans veröffentlicht. Und gleich am ersten Tag geht es richtig heiß her.

    Die Oklahoma City Thunder mit Dennis Schröder und Superstar Russell Westbrook müssen gegen die Golden State Warriors ran. Mit dem Meister wartet auf OKC gleich ein richtiger Gradmesser.

    Auch für die Boston Celtics könnte der Start in die neue Saison einfacher sein. Auf Daniel Theis und seine Teamkollegen warten die Philadelphia 76ers mit dem Super-Duo Joel Embiid und Ben Simmons.

    Erstes LeBron-Heimspiel gegen Rockets

    Für LeBron James und die Los Angeles Lakers geht es an Spieltag eins gegen die Portland Trail Blazers. Richtig spannend wird es für King James in der zweiten Partie.

    Zwei Tage nach dem Auftakt spielt er erstmalig in der heimischen Arena und muss gegen die Houston Rockets und Superstar James Harden sein Können unter Beweis stellen.

    Dirk Nowitzki und Maxi Kleber müssen mit den Dallas Mavericks an Spieltag eins gegen die Phoenix Suns antreten. Dabei kommt es erstmalig zum Aufeinandertreffen von Nummer-eins-Pick DeAndre Ayton und Mavs-Supertalent Luka Doncic.

    Spannende Spiele an Weihnachten

    Nicht nur zum Saisonauftakt, auch für die Weihnachtsfeiertage hat sich die NBA ganz besondere Partien einfallen lassen.

    Es ist eines der mit Spannung erwarteten Duelle und an Weihnachten bekommen es die Fans als Geschenk unter den Baum gelegt.

    Am ersten Feiertag trifft LeBron James mit den Lakers auf Meister Golden State, gegen die er in den vergangenen Finals mit den Cavs verloren hat.

    Celtics vs. Sixers als Auftaktspiel

    Auch sonst haben sich die Spielplanmacher bei den NBA Christmas Games wieder einmal nicht lumpen lassen. Mit dem Ost-Kracher zwischen den Boston Celtics und den Philadelphia 76ers kommt es zudem zur Neuauflage der Eastern Conference Finals der Vorsaison. 

    Und auch auf das neue Team von Nationalspieler Dennis Schröder, die Oklahoma City Thunder, wartet mit den Houston Rockets ein echter Brocken.

    Die NBA startet am 16. Oktober mit dem Auftaktspiel Celtics vs. Sixers.

He is the youngest person to be included in both Halls, and is hailed by the Los Angles Times as, "the model of what a contemporary guitarist should be."

In usual Nardwuar the Human Serviette fashion, he magically knew about about Rex's father, Green Day influence, high school days and more. Rex Orange County is a UK singer-songwriter best known for his songs "Loving is Easy," "Best Friend" and "Sunflower." Tyler, the Creator put Rex on last year with the release of Flower Boy, of which he was featured on "Foreward" and "Boredom." Back in May, he and Randy Newman released a new version of Toy Story song "You've Got a Friend in Me." Rex is currently on the last few dates of his North America tour. He will play at Portland tonight, Santa Ana on August 12th and Los Angeles on the 13th. Watch Nardwuar's interview with Rex above.

    LIAR by Stephanie St. Klaire

    Coming August 23

    Synopsis:

    Fake it until you make it. That was the mantra Cori Dash chanted as she chased a big city dream. The more you tell people you’re on top of the world, the more they believe it – just like they believed the embellished image she sold them with her knock off designer facade. It wasn’t lying if the truth stood somewhere in the middle – and she didn’t get caught.

    Dominic Blackthorne owned half of that big city…and a reputation. Rather than dispel rumors or show the world the real Nick, he let his own fake image run free. Until Cori Dash – the only person who told him exactly how it was, even if it stung.

    When Cori is faced with her ex-fiance, now engaged to her ex-best friend, it’s game on. In her boldest move yet, she concocts her biggest lie to date by introducing the first handsome stranger that walks by as her new fiancé. Happy to play the part, Nick is already planning the fake wedding of her dreams.

    You know what they say about lying – the truth always comes out – and it hurts. Especially when Cori finds out she isn’t the biggest Liar in this game, and she’s been out played.

      Stephanie St. Klaire is a Pacific Northwest native currently living in Portland, Oregon with her husband, five children, and two ferocious lap dogs that are used to the finer things in life like sleeping all day. When she isn’t writing, she can usually be found with a plate full of taco’s, a side of bean dip, and probably some gummy bears while being a little bit hippy and a lot bit busy mom’ing and wife’ing. When she’s not tossing around gritty crime show inspired serial killers and diabolical bad guys, she likes to make people pee their pants a little with a good romcom. Sometimes, her worlds collide, and she writes really funny stuff right before she kills people off on the pages! She loves murder and mayhem as much as a good laugh and HEA! That’s why she’s a die-hard Hallmark junky but loves her gritty crime shows – balance! Stephanie has always been a story teller, with the gift of “gab”, and a life-long goal to be a writer. Unfortunate circumstances with her health, finally afforded her the time to do so. Irony at its best, she began writing her first novel at an adverse time, to escape her circumstance and explore the stories in her imagination for relief. She is happy to share those stories with her readers, and bring a little fun, entertainment, and of course smexy characters to the pages.

              Comment on The Windy City by The Wobbly Guy      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    There are both genetic and cultural causes for the dysfunctional american cities. Note that just liberalism doesn't necessarily lead to social breakdown, e.g. Portland, San Francisco. These are cities with relatively few blacks, and have more or less done ok with low rates of homicide, AFAIK. San Francisco, of course, is buckling under a whole lot of other problems of the liberals' making. But still, at the moment loads better than the black liberal havens of Baltimore, Detroit, and Chicago. As Paul Marks mentioned, the cultural collapse of white civilisation will eventually bring down white liberal cities as well. It's just a matter of time. Then we have the cities with a high proportion of blacks, with high crime and murder rates. https://rapidcityjournal.com/news/national/the-cities-with-the-highest-murder-rates-in-the-us/collection_0e7dd367-2f62-5822-b849-97f4e9a43e3d.html#24 That's not a coincidence. The characteristics of blacks Bob Sykes mentioned - IQ’s in the 70’s (genetically fixed), high impulsivity, proclivity to violence, can be controlled, and were indeed controlled, as recently as the 50s. Then the Great Society, the welfare state, the collapse of traditional religion, all acted to release the innermost id of the black population. Which brings us to New York. New York's liberal order does not tolerate threats to its safety, power and prosperity, despite what BLM and SJWs say. Stop-and-frisk policies, stringent laws (Eric Garner was essentially killed over selling single cigarettes, which was ridiculous) serve to keep the black population under control, and even to drive them out into other cities (look up AFFH) so that the liberals can enjoy urban living free from the threat of black crime. A similar gentrification effect is going on in Washington, and if rumors are believed, Chicago. When conditions are bad enough, anybody will succumb to chaos and disorder, no matter what their genetics are, just how long to get there and how bad it would be. E.g. the east asians (especially chinese) in the US seem pretty productive and civilised now, but it wasn't that long ago that the Cultural Revolution and its excesses were going on. It's just that blacks succumb the quickest. Is there any high black proportion city NOT controlled by Dems that can serve as a counter-example? Or can we also say that the propensity of blacks to vote Dem is emblematic of their id problems?

              Antifa goon who hit people with a bike lock gets 3 years probation      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

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

    Even given the tendency of judges to later drop or downgrade the charges against people involved in left-wing protests, I’m pretty surprised by this one. Eric Clanton is the Antifa member who was caught on video last April swinging a metal bike lock and bashing a Trump supporter in the skull. Clanton was facing four felony counts of assault, but Berkeleyside reports those charges were dropped in favor of a single misdemeanor charge:

    Wednesday, Clanton was supposed to have had his preliminary hearing, where a judge decides whether there’s enough evidence in a case for it to move ahead to trial. Instead, there was no hearing, and information about Clanton’s plea deal became available online.

    According to Alameda County Superior Court records, Clanton entered a “no contest” plea Wednesday to one misdemeanor battery charge. The felony charges against him were dismissed, and an allegation that he had caused serious bodily injury was stricken. A misdemeanor charge that Clanton wore a mask during the commission of the crime also was dropped.

    Police said, previously, that Clanton attacked at least three people with a metal U-lock during the April 15 rally in and around Civic Center Park. Court papers later revealed that Clanton struck at least seven people in the head, according to authorities. One person received a head laceration that required five staples to fix. Another was uninjured but had a piece of a helmet broken off. A third was struck across the neck and back, police wrote.

    Here’s the most well-known video of Clanton at work. As you’ll see, he sneaks up from behind other people and swings the heavy metal lock directly into the victim’s head before retreating:

    There’s another clip on YouTube showing another bike lock attack by the same guy. In this clip you can actually see his face right after the attack:

    Berkeleyside reports when police searched his apartment they found a bike lock, Antifa literature, and clothing that matched what was seen in the video clips. Also, his phone records placed him near the site of the attacks last April. All of that to say, I’m not sure why prosecutors decided to offer this guy a sweetheart deal when they had a fairly solid case that he’d engaged in multiple assaults and at least a couple cases of battery. At a minimum, why not charge him with misdemeanor counts for each attack?

    These street battles in Berkley, Portland, Sacramento, and elsewhere are going to keep happening so long as the masked goons continue to get a pass from authorities. Berkeley is inviting more violence by lowering the personal risk of engaging in it.

    The post Antifa goon who hit people with a bike lock gets 3 years probation appeared first on Hot Air.

    Vedeta LeBron James şi noii săi coechipieri de la Los Angeles Lakers se vor deplasa în sala dublei campioane en titre, Golden State Warriors, de Crăciun, conform programului competiţional pentru sezonul 2018-2019 anunţat miercuri de Liga profesionistă nord-americană de baschet (NBA), al cărei debut de sezon va avea loc pe 16 octombrie. James, care a jucat contra lui Warriors în ultimele patru finale din NBA sub culorile clubului Cleveland Cavaliers, a cucerit titlul în 2016. Dar cvadruplul MVP (cel mai bun jucător al anului) a părăsit-o pe "Cavs" pentru LA Lakers în luna iulie, cu care a semnat un contract pe patru ani, în valoare de 154 milioane dolari. NBA a anunţat miercuri programul mai multor meciuri cap de afiş, înainte de a da publicităţii programul complet al sezonului cu numărul 73, prevăzut pentru vineri. Conform planificării, Philadelphia 76-ers va juca cu Boston Celtics, în timp ce Oklahoma City Thunder se va deplasa în sala lui Warriors pe 16 octombrie pentru uvertura sezonului. Cu această ocazie, jucătorii lui Golden State vor primi, în cadrul unei ceremonii, şi inelele de campioni ai NBA. Cinci meciuri se vor juca de Crăciun pentru al 11-lea consecutiv: New York Knicks - Milwaukee Bucks, Houston Rockets - Oklahoma City Thunder, Boston Celtics - Philadelphia 76-ers, Utah Jazz - Portland Trail Blazers şi Golden State Warriors - Los Angeles Lakers. Trei meciuri vor avea loc pe 21 ianuarie, cu ocazia Martin Luther King Day: Memphis Grizzlies - New Orleans Pelicans, Philadelphia 76-ers - Houston Rockets şi LA Lakers - Golden State Warriors.

              #14691: Allow commas in tag names      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Adding tags to posts via the web interface involves a lot of what boils down to

    explode( ',', join( ',', array( $tag_name, ... ) ) );
    

    both in PHP and JS.

    We settled on commas so we could have tags with spaces in them (see #10320, for example).

    It'd be nice if tags (and other taxonomies) could have commas in them, though. Example use case: normalized locations ("Portland, OR"). Admittedly, commas in tag names is an edge case.

    The attached treats tag inputs as "real" CSV strings instead of just exploding by commas.

    That way, you can enter:

    hello, "hello, world"
    

    in the tags input field and the following tags would be added to the post.

    • hello
    • hello, world

    This addresses commas in tag names but makes entering double quotes in tag names more annoying. If you wanted a tag named double"quote, you'd have to enter the following.

    "double""quote"
    

    This may also help with #7897.

    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."

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."

    http://twitter.com/CBSNews/status/1026668775070949376

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

    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."

    PORTLAND, Oregon—Days later there’s still a bloodstain on the sidewalk where a police stun grenade smashed into Anthony’s head.

    Anthony, who asked to be identified only by his first name, was injured last weekend when cops in riot gear unleashed flashbangs, pepper spray, rubber bullets and other less-lethal weapons as local protesters demonstrated against far-right groups massed downtown.

    In his first interview, he told The Daily Beast he was running from what many observers have described as an unprovoked police assault when the grenade punched through an air hole in the bicycle helmet he was wearing for protection.

    • Guest View: In praise of open source

      When you think of little social movements that bring about big societal shifts, the first thing that comes to mind probably isn’t open source. But maybe it should be.

      The technological revolution that is steadily digitizing every nook and cranny of human activity obviously relies on code, and open-source code underpins much of the recent surge in innovation. Streaming movies? Digital Assistants? Autonomous cars? All made possible to some degree by the open-source movement and the rapid evolution it has enabled. Access to open-source code lets us reversion, refine, enhance, and scale programs quickly and exponentially — it’s a font of collective knowledge that fuels a whirlwind of computational advancement.

    • OpenStack and Open Source MANO: Technologies for NFV Deployment

      We have experienced how open source software technologies revolutionized the application development process, which ultimately resulted in digital transformation across various industry verticals. Open source technologies now are disrupting the telecom sector for building 5G internet, which will be powered by network functions virtualization (NFV) and software defined networking (SDN). With NFV and SDN, multiple network functions and control and management operations in telecom networks will be software-driven; enabling the cloud-native and DevOps approach.

    • 5 golden rules for working openly with difficult people

      Sometimes these personalities can rub each other the wrong way, generate conflict, and be difficult to work with. Some of these people can be unclear in their expectations, overreact to relatively benign scenarios, and be unreliable. They can be your founders, executives, team-mates, other team members, or people who report to you. In many cases, people handle these challenging personalities in a sub-optimal way. They get distracted by the ego and emotion in the situation as opposed to focusing on clear, productive outcomes and building lasting trust.

While some of the program focused on retrospectives, there were also talks and tutorials on multiple technical topics and open-source community management. To give you a feel for the whole conference, we will explore it in a two-part article. This installment will cover a retrospective of open source and some presentations on releasing projects as open source at your organization. A second article will include a few of the technical topics at the conference.

              Why Is CNN Mainstreaming A Right-Wing Radio Host Who Promotes Violent, Extremist Rhetoric?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    John Fredericks has appeared on CNN many times. His radio show often features loose talk about right-wing violence.

    Why has CNN, which this week publicized death threats made against two of its journalists, continued to provide a platform for a right-wing talk radio host who promotes a man who has suggested it may nearly be time for Trump supporters to kill reporters and other prominent Americans?

    There was a certain quiet drama when talk radio host John Fredericks appeared on a recent panelhosted by CNN and HLN anchor Carol Costello. The drama was what went unstated – something at least as important as the tabloid-style discussion of the Trump family’s differences of opinion over whether the press is the “enemy of the people.” What went undiscussed was that Fredericks has repeatedly used his radio show to promote an ex-CIA agent who says, as Salon reported on July 31, that it is nearly time for armed Trump voters to kill numerous public figures -- including reporters such as CNN’s own Jake Tapper and Jim Acosta.

    Costello did not ask Fredericks -- a CNN regular since 2016, whom CNN has featured 53 times in the past year, including 30 interviews on its sister network HLN -- why his show amplifies the voice and promotes the blog of ex-CIA official Michael Scheuer, of McLean, Virginia, who for years has listed the names and occupations of people he says armed factions should prepare to kill with guns or ropes. Scheuer had offered a notional deadline of Aug. 1 before Trump supporters were to take matters into their own hands.

    She also did not ask Fredericks -- who describes himself as “the Trump campaign’s Virginia chairman” and serves on Trump’s 2020 presidential advisory board -- about his recent interviewwith Scheuer, in which the latter characterized several prominent public officials as “maggots” and undocumented immigrants as “vermin.”

    Such dehumanizing language is, according to David Neiwert, author of “Alt-America: The Rise of the Radical Right in the Age of Trump” and the Pacific Northwest correspondent for the Southern Poverty Law Center, a forerunner to justifications for murder, as seen in the rhetoric of 19th-century minister and self-proclaimed Indian-hater Col. John Chivington, which preceded a massacre; Bill O’Reilly’s demonization of Dr. George Tiller on Fox News, before the abortion provider’s assassination; and the “hate radio” talk that inspired genocide in Rwanda.

    “Violent eliminationist rhetoric like this has a long and deep history in America,” Neiwert told Salon, “from Col. Chivington declaring ‘Nits make lice’ at Sand Creek to Bill O’Reilly labeling Dr. George Tiller ‘the Baby Killer.’ It creates permission for less stable, more violent actors to murder their targets in cold blood. We saw rhetoric like this inspire the massacre of thousands of people in Rwanda, and its purpose here is to do the same for our country and its citizens. It’s not just vile, it’s profoundly dangerous and profoundly un-American.”

    Many CNN journalists, including Costello, Tapper and Acosta, have reported on President Trump’s claims that the media are “the enemy of the people.” They and others have sought to hold White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders (who has appeared on Fredericks’ show, and who has recently elevated and validated him at a White House press briefingaccountable for her silence, which some observers might view as complicity.

    Recently, CNN’s Don Lemon held Fredericks accountable on-air for defending Trump’s characterization of nations in the developing world as “shithole countries” by cutting his mic. That CNN has continued to give Fredericks a platform is surprising. CNN could have and should have known about Fredericks’ and Scheuer’s promotion of eliminationist rhetoric –– and disclosed to viewers this fact and its significance –– lest anyone come to misinterpret CNN’s silence as complicity.

    When Salon asked CNN spokesman Richard Hudock why the network continues to provide Fredericks a platform, despite his promotion of the views of an ex-CIA agent who has said it is almost time for armed Trump voters to murder journalists and other prominent Americans, including CNN's own Tapper and Acosta, he had no comment.

    “Kill them. Kill them all!”

    Scheuer is a frequent guest and occasional host of John Fredericks Radio, which routinely directs its listeners to his blog, where he wrote on July 14 that it was “quite near time” for “well-armed citizens who voted for Trump” to “kill those seeking to impose tyranny,” of whom there was a “long and very precise list” of journalists, activists, pundits, abortion providers, Republican and Democratic elected officials, federal judges, law professors, FBI agents, intelligence officials and Justice Department officials, along with “all who support them.”

    “If Trump does not act soon to erase the above noted tyranny and tyrants,” he concluded, “the armed citizenry must step in and eliminate them.”

    As recently as July 17, Scheuer, writing on his blog, cast as “traitors” a number of public officials – as well as journalists Tapper, Acosta, MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and reporters for the Washington Post and New York Times. He said that these members of the media, along with members of Congress, federal bureaucrats, and “prominent Jewish-Americans” who participate in, oversee or report on the “Russia-hacking” investigation are “more than worthy of merciless annihilation.”

    The same day, Scheuer appeared on John Fredericks Radio, on which he commended the example of Russian President Vladimir Putin, whom he said killed indiscriminately in Syria – as if suggesting that were a good thing. Fredericks said this reminded him of Confederate Gen. Stonewall Jackson, who once said, “Kill them. Kill them all!”

    “Kill them all,” Scheuer repeated. “And whoever supports them. Kill them, too.”

    Fredericks echoed, “Kill them, too.”

    John Fredericks’ signal-boosting of Scheuer’s eliminationist rhetoric escalated on the same day that Salon published its report, “Trump-endorsed radio show has promoted ex-CIA agent’s call for right-wing rebellion.”

    Scheuer told Fredericks’ listeners that, while GoDaddy had taken down his website (archived here) after his inflammatory July 17 blog post, he planned to launch a new blog at the domain non-intervention2.com, which he said is “now registered” with JustHost, one of dozens of hosting companies owned by Endurance International Group (@EnduranceIntl) of Burlington, Massachusetts. The site at that domain, registered anonymously with JustHost on July 21, went live on Aug. 7.

    Fredericks repeated the domain name for the benefit of listeners. He said that Scheuer’s website had offered “insight and analysis that no one else has, and I value that.”

    “We look forward to your getting your website back up, so your blogs can get going,” said Fredericks. “You should be able to post whatever you please.” However, the Freedom Forum Institute – the education and outreach partner of the Freedom Forum and the Newseum – has pointed out that the First Amendment does not protect some types of speech, such as plagiarism, false advertising, defamation, child pornography, blackmail, solicitation to commit crimes, incitement to imminent lawless action or true threats.

    Scheuer told Fredericks that he was attempting to transfer all his previous blog posts to the new domain. These collectively represent years of his vision of “a collective, armed, and wide-ranging American rebellion” to eradicate “tyranny,” along with lists of people whom he casts as “tyrants,” “traitors,” “miscreants,” “maggots” and “expendables,” and whom he says Trump voters should prepare to shoot or hang, and soon. For example, in a July 2 blog post, Scheuer advised giving Trump time to act, and holding off the “reckoning” until at least Aug. 1. He wrote, “If this period passes, Americans are in the happy position of already being well-armed and in possession of an initial, partial list of miscreants who are in desperate need of attrition.”

    Scheuer’s inaugural blog post

    This is why CNN’s platforming of Fredericks matters. Fredericks amplifies Scheuer’s voice and promotes his website; this call to armed rebellion is what readers will find when they go there. Scheuer filed his inaugural blog post on his new site on Aug. 7. He protested that GoDaddy had taken down his previous site due to his argument “that if Trump cannot/will not enforce the law and arrest, try, incarcerate, and, if the law allows, execute those who believe and act as if they are above it, American citizens will have to do their duty by using their weapons to snuff out the authors of tyranny” along with “those who support them.”

    “I stand not as an inciter,” Scheuer claimed, despite his advocacy of armed rebellion, “but rather as the incited and as a responder to the clear threats of civil war” which, he said, come from Democrats, the media, academics, the financial and tech industries, antifa and Black Lives Matter activists, teachers’ unions, “the minority groups,” feminists, immigrants, members of the LGBTQ community and advocates of the value of diversity. “Those are the sources that are solely responsible for the civil war that is nearing,” he wrote. “That they are ignorant, or feign ignorance, of that fact will add to their surprise if the time for Rob Reiner’s war comes and so many of them find themselves reaping the armed whirlwind they and ol’ Rob have sown.”

    He also embraced Russian President Vladimir Putin as a champion for white people, adding that “it seemed ridiculous to worry about Russian meddling in U.S. elections.” Scheuer mused, “I have nattered on here longer than I intended.” He then excoriated the “tech giants” for removing content from “Alec Jones” [sic]. “In banning Jones,” he warned, “those on the left again have proven that they are the ones who are seeking to provoke a civil war. ... My own hunch is that if their provocations work, they will enjoy the reality of war with considerably less gusto than they did while so loudly calling for and provoking it.”

    “The truth shall make you free”

    Scheuer made clear to John Fredericks Radio listeners, in his July 31 interview, that he had no intention of tempering his violent visions or inflammatory rhetoric. Indeed, in defense of his recent blog posts, he said that the Declaration of Independence provides the American people “a duty to kill those who are trying to impose tyranny.” He said that “if you have a tyranny being imposed on you, it is your right, it’s your duty, to resist it.” When he added, “And that means using the Second Amendment,” Fredericks appeared to ratify this idea of gun violence, saying, “The truth, Dr. Scheuer, will set you free. No doubt.”

    While any Christian listeners might have recognized “The truth shall make you free” as a quote from the Gospel of John, others who might have caught the broadcast, such as Scheuer’s wife, CIA senior official Alfreda Frances Bikowsky, would know it as the agency’s motto.

    “The vermin we see running around”

    Scheuer went on to characterize Sen. Mark Warner, D-Va., vice chair of the Select Committee on Intelligence, Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller, prosecutor Andrew Weissmann of Mueller’s team, and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper as “maggots” who, he says, “have to be eradicated.”

    “Weissmann, Mueller, Warner, these are not men, John,” he said. “These are maggots. And our system is loaded with these maggots. Whether it’s Clapper, or any of the rest of them that we’ve talked about this morning. And the system has to be cleaned. They have to be eradicated out of the system.”

    Fredericks introduced the topic of what to do about illegal immigration on the Mexican border, and how to respond to people who call for the abolition of ICE.

    “I think the vermin we see running around – ” Scheuer began, “without ICE, it would be up to the American people to stop immigration. And there’s only one way to do that, John. And that’s with weaponry. These people are playing with civil war, with fire, with horrible results.” He went on to suggest that without ICE, the situation would require “an armed citizenry” to take vigilante action.

    In a series of essays, Neiwert has described eliminationist rhetoric as a shunning of “dialogue and the democratic exchange of ideas” by advocating the “outright elimination of the opposing side,” often exemplified by descriptions of the “enemy” as “vermin.”

    Such rhetoric “always depicts its opposition as simply beyond the pale,” Neiwert has written, “and in the end the embodiment of evil itself – unfit for participation in their vision of society, and thus in need of elimination.”

    “It often depicts its designated ‘enemy’ as vermin (especially rats and cockroaches) or diseases, and loves to incessantly suggest that its targets are themselves disease carriers,” Neiwert continued. “A close corollary – but not as nakedly eliminationist – are claims that the opponents are traitors or criminals, or gross liabilities for our national security, and thus inherently fit for elimination or at least incarceration.”

    Such depictions are “often voiced as crude ‘jokes’,” Neiwert noted, “the humor of which, when analyzed, is inevitably predicated on a venomous hatred. But what we also know about this rhetoric is that, as surely as night follows day, this kind of talk eventually begets action, with inevitably tragic results.”

    CNN commentator Ana Navarro has responded forcefully to this kind of dehumanizing talk. On CNN’s “New Day,” Navarro has accused President Trump of “dehumanizing people” by referring to “animals” during a discussion on immigration. “It’s what the Nazis did,” she said. “It’s what slave owners did. It’s not what Americans do.” She advised Trump to “measure his words.”

    This week, Apple, Google and Facebook announced that they had removed content from conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and his Infowars show, which Facebook said violated its policy against “dehumanizing language.” Whether one agrees with their actions or not, they were within their First Amendment rights to do so. As Freedom Forum Institute president Gene Policinski has stated, “the amendment is designed to restrain the government, not private companies.” It remains to be seen whether these corporations will respond in a similar fashion to John Fredericks Radio, which has its own Facebook page, and is available on YouTube and as an iTunes podcast.

    Fredericks, however, neither questioned nor challenged Scheuer’s visions of civil war and vigilantes shooting immigrants like “vermin,” and eradicating public servants he dehumanizes as “maggots.” Instead, Fredericks thanked him for his “intriguing insight” and wished him well on the relaunch of his website.

    Two days later, Carol Costello hosted Fredericks on HLN to discuss characterizations of journalists as enemies of the people. No doubt everyone at CNN understands the seriousness of such violent rhetoric and the urgency of holding Trump’s administration and his campaign accountable for their silence, which might fairly be seen as complicity.

    When CNN journalists have received threats, the network has taken them seriously. CNN media critic Brian Stelter recently aired a C-SPAN clip of a caller threatening to shoot him and Lemon. Stelter said such calls and emails are “coming in more often.” But the fact remains that CNN has continued to provide a platform for Fredericks while turning a blind eye towards his involvement with Scheuer, who has called for the “merciless annihilation” of numerous people, including reporters for CNN and its competitors. CNN’s confusion about how best to respond to the notion that they are the enemy of the people recalls the ironic phrase often associated with Walt Kelly’s cartoon possum Pogo: “We have met the enemy, and he is us.”

              How A Labor Of Love Grew Into An 'Enchanted Forest' In Oregon      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Summertime is for road trips. Atlas Obscura and All Things Considered are traveling up the West Coast, from California to Washington, in search of "hidden wonders" — unique but overlooked people and places. Driving on Interstate 5 in Turner, Ore. — about an hour south of Portland — it's hard to miss the towering road sign, topped by a waving Humpty Dumpty: "Enchanted Forest Theme Park. Next Exit." The park's attractions fill the hillside just off the highway — but it wouldn't exist without the dedication of one man. Roger Tofte grew up wanting to be an illustrator in the mold of Norman Rockwell. Instead, he found himself working as a draftsman for the Oregon highway department. It was during a family road trip with his wife and kids in 1963 when inspiration struck. Tofte remembers seeing roadside amusement parks that were "just plywood and there wasn't much to them so I kinda started dreaming up what I'd like to do." Tofte returned home, made a $500 down payment on 20 acres of wooded

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




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




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

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

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

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

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

    2018-08-07 - Warming Earth causing plants, trees and soil to absorb less methane:

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

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

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

    Quote: "A plane made an emergency landing at New York's Kennedy Airport after reports of smoke in the cockpit. Officials say United Airlines Flight 4697 from Washington to Providence, Rhode Island was diverted about 2 p.m. Tuesday. About 50 people were evacuated from the twin-engine Embraer ERJ-145 regional jet and bused to a terminal."

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

    Quote: "The largest wildfire in California's recorded history expanded to almost 300,000 acres on Tuesday, postponing the start of the school year as ash choked the air and thousands of people remained driven from their homes.

    Quote: "The blaze, dubbed the Mendocino Complex, was reported 20 percent contained on Tuesday. Its rapid growth at the same time firefighters were battling more than a dozen other major blazes around the state fanned fears that 2018 could become the worst wildfire season in California history."

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    SANTO DOMINGO. Los campeones de la NBA, los Warriors de Golden State, comenzarán el 16 de octubre la ruta de la próxima temporada en su hogar donde recibirán al Thunder de Oklahoma City (10:30 p.m.) y el día 18 será el debut de LeBron James con sus Lakers de Los Ángeles contra los Trail Blazers en Portland (10:30 p.m.)

    Los 76ers en Boston completarán la jornada de dos partidos del 16 de octubre contra sus rivales de semifinales de Conferencia. Será el primer juego de Al Horford en la campaña y el retorno a juego de Kyrie Irving, con su novato de segundo año, Jayson Tatum. El día 20 de octubre, será el debut de LeBron en su nuevo hogar, en Los Angeles, y ese día reciben a los Rockets de Houston al Más Valioso de la temporada, James Harden. Un día antes, los Warriors visitarán al sensacional novato, Donovan Mitchel.

    Así se conoció ayer, cuando la NBA dio a conocer su calendario para la próxima temporada.

    El día de Navidad, LeBron le robó el protagonismo a Cleveland, aunque tendrá el mismo rival de los últimos años, cuando los Warriors reciban a los Lakers el 25 de diciembre. Ese día el Thunder estará de visita en Houston; los 76ers volverán a ver a Boston; los Bucks ante los Knicks y Blazers ante Utah.


              Beyond the rebel girl : women and the industrial workers of the world in the Pacific Northwest, 1905-1924 / Heather Mayer.      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    cover image"More than a century after their founding in 1905, the Industrial Workers of the World--or Wobblies as they are commonly known--remain a popular subject for study and discussion among students of labor history and social justice. They are often portrayed as lovable underdogs, with their songs and cartoons, generally irreverent attitude, and stalwart courage in the face of systemic persecution from vigilantes, law enforcement, and government officials. In Beyond the Rebel Girl, historian Heather Mayer questions the well-worn vision of Wobblies as young, single, male, itinerant workers. While such workers formed a large portion of the membership, they weren't the whole picture. In small towns across the Northwest, and in the larger cities of Seattle, Portland, and Spokane, women played an integral role in Wobbly life. Single women, but also families--husband and wife Wobbly teams--played important roles in some of the biggest fights for justice. IWW halls in these Northwest cities often functioned as community centers, with family-friendly events and entertainment. Women were drawn to the IWW for its radical vision, inclusionary policies, birth control advocacy, and emphasis on freedom of choice in marriage. The IWW also offered women an avenue for activism that wasn't focused primarily on the fight for suffrage. Beyond the Rebel Girl deepens our understanding of how the IWW functioned and how the union supported women in their fight for birth control, sexual emancipation, and better labor conditions, all while facing persecution at the local, state, and federal levels"-- Provided by publisher.

              How A Labor Of Love Grew Into An 'Enchanted Forest' In Oregon       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    Summertime is for road trips. Atlas Obscura and All Things Considered are traveling up the West Coast, from California to Washington, in search of "hidden wonders" — unique but overlooked people and places.

    Driving on Interstate 5 in Turner, Ore. — about an hour south of Portland — it's hard to miss the towering road sign, topped by a waving Humpty Dumpty: "Enchanted Forest Theme Park. Next Exit."

    The park's attractions fill the hillside just off the highway — but it wouldn't exist without the dedication of one man.

    Roger Tofte grew up wanting to be an illustrator in the mold of Norman Rockwell. Instead, he found himself working as a draftsman for the Oregon highway department.

    It was during a family road trip with his wife and kids in 1963 when inspiration struck. Tofte remembers seeing roadside amusement parks that were "just plywood and there wasn't much to them so I kinda started dreaming up what I'd like to do."

    Tofte returned home, made a $500 down payment on 20 acres of wooded hillside, and started building, sometimes one cement bag at a time.

    For nearly a decade, Tofte worked in isolation, sculpting figures from fairy tales and nursery rhymes: Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater, the Seven Dwarfs, Little Red Riding Hood. He built each one by hand.

    The Enchanted Forest finally opened in 1971. Tofte says 75 people visited the first day; 1,000 came the next Sunday. A couple of years later, Tofte quit his day job to focus full time on the park.

    These days, more than 100,000 people visit the Enchanted Forest each year, according to the Tofte family. It's grown to include a roller coaster, a log ride and a comedy theater troupe. Three generations of the family now help keep the park thriving.

    "It's really rewarding," says the 88-year-old Tofte, "especially seeing all these families come in, and so many of 'em will stop me and thank me for doing this."

    The key to realizing your dreams, he says, is follow-through.

    "It's not something that you just sit around and hope it's going to come true," he says. "It takes a lot of sacrifice. It takes a lot work and effort."

              Salem, Ore., Considers Plastic Grocery Bag Ban      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

    City officials are expected to vote on whether to adopt a plastic grocery bag ban later this month.

    Officials in Salem, Ore., will decide later on this month whether the city will become one of the latest in the state to adopt a ban on plastic grocery bags.

    Environmental activists have maintained that plastic bags harm the Earth and wildlife. But grocers in Salem worry that if customers aren’t required to pay a small fee for recycled paper bags, the ban could force stores into raising their prices to offset costs.

    If Salem adopts the ban on plastic grocery bags, it will join the ranks of cities like Portland and Corvallis.

    The Statesman Journal has more:

    A proposed ban on single-use plastic bags will come before the Salem City Council later this month amid a broader push to increase environmental protections across the city.

    Councilors will consider the ban at their Aug. 27 meeting.

    But local grocers warn that if customers aren't required to pay a 5-cent fee for recyclable paper bags, they could be forced to raise prices at Salem stores to offset costs. Paper bags cost retailers significantly more than plastic.

              Right-Wing Marchers Have Declared Portland Enemy Territory      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
    Why Portland? And will it ever stop? "Last weekend, 400 people, mostly men, met in a parking lot along the Columbia River in Vancouver, Wash., girded for battle. They carried helmets and shields. They wore full suits of futuristic combat armor, Boba Fett helmets and homemade Pepe the Frog costumes. They clambered onto private school buses and drove into enemy territory: Portland. Within hours, the streets of the Rose City were filled with strange sights that have recently become common in Portland: neon chemical smoke, men in costumes throwing punches, and riot cops charging into battle."



    "It was the 15th rally held in Portland in the past year and a half by the Vancouver-based protest group Patriot Prayer. In that time, the group has visited just three other cities outside its home state of Washington: Salem, San Francisco and Berkeley, Calif."

    "And, like every other time the right-wing group comes to Portland, it has been confronted by antifascist counterprotesters, sometimes in masks and "black bloc" clothing. This time, roughly 1,000 antifascists arrived, and proceeded chanting from the other side of Southwest Naito Parkway."

    "And last weekend, like every other time Patriot Prayer has come to Portland, police were present. This time, their larger and more militant presence meant that running brawls like those seen downtown one month ago did not occur."

    "Police largely kept the two groups apart. They did that in part by turning explosive devices and gas weapons on the antifascist protesters, seriously injuring two people."

Sebelum pertandingan, Warriors akan menerima cincin juara mereka dan memperkenalkan banner untuk titel mereka pada NBA 2018. 

    Bentrok antara Lakers melawan Warriors pada periode Natal akan menjadi salah satu laga yang menyedot perhatian. Laga-laga lain juga tak kalah menarik.
