          The Secret Token Exposes the Mythology of the Roanoke Colony      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Andrew Lawler outlines the history, disappearance, and the eventual mythologizing of the Roanoke colony in his new book The Secret Token. by Joe Streckert

In 1587, 115 colonists established England’s first small colony of the Americas on Roanoke—a swampy, coastal island that would eventually be considered part of North Carolina. The governor of the colony, John White, returned to England shortly after. Three years later, he returned to find the colony gone. There was nothing: no corpses, no burned buildings, and no signs of struggle. The only thing left of the lost colony was a word scratched into a tree: CROATOAN.

Andrew Lawler outlines the history, disappearance, and the eventual mythologizing of the Roanoke colony in his new book, The Secret Token. Lawler is a journalist who’s written for publications like Science and Smithsonian, and his level-headed approach works well for considering a mystery that’s been the subject of pseudo-science and pseudo-history.

{{image:1, align:left, width:250}}

The Roanoke colony is often associated with phenomena like ghosts, zombies, or alien abduction. Lawler, thankfully, doesn’t spend too much time debunking that kind of thing. Far more interesting is his exploration of Roanoke in regards to how America thinks about itself, its history, and race.

When John White, the governor of Roanoke, returned to the island in 1590, he didn’t think anything all that strange had happened. “Croatoan” was the name of an island 50 miles south of Roanoke, and the colonists had planned that, if they had to leave, they would write their intended destination on some trees. White saw the name of a nearby island and noted that everything seemed fine. Reasoning that the colony (which included his daughter and granddaughter) was on another island, probably with a group of local Native Americans, he left.

The “lost colony” mystery only became a major facet of American history some 200 years later when the US tried to create its national origin story. Roanoke saw the birth of Virginia Dare, the first-ever person of English ancestry born in North America. In later centuries, Dare would be upheld as a mythic figure, celebrated as the first American, and frequently considered the darling of white supremacists who pointed at her existence as proof of the whiteness of America. All that, despite the fact that we know next to nothing about Virginia Dare other than her name.

The Secret Token doesn’t dismiss the fate of the colony as White did. Lawler dives into what could have happened to it. He puts it into context. Roanoke existed at a time when England and Spain were actively trying to kill each other, Native Americans and Europeans were first encountering each other, and the beginnings of America’s genocide and displacement were already under way. That context is inescapable, but everyone loves a good mystery. recommended

          Comment on Here’s Why Canada’s Traffic Safety Record Is Better Than Ours by yvrlutyens      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
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.

Respecto al oscar del público os puedo comentar una cosa que sucedió en la BBC en 1999 cuando yo vivía en Londres. Barry Norman, un prestigioso crítico de cine se le ocurrió hacer una encuesta entre la audiencia para que votaran las 100 mejores películas de la historia por aquello del cambio de milenio y todo eso. Los resultados dejaron al tal Norman con una cara de pasmo absoluto. De las 100 películas tan solo una de lengua no inglesa: Cinema Paradiso. Eso quiere decir que olvidaros de encontrar en dicha lista a gentes como Kurosawa, Buñuel o Fellini. Ni una sola película de alguien tan aclamado en las últimas décadas como Woody Allen.

Boeing Faces New Production Snarls for Cash-Cow 737 JetlinerBoeing Co. is working through cascading supplier problems that will hamper third-quarter deliveries of its 737 jetliner, the planemaker’s largest source of profit. Hiccups at the makers of fuselages and engines, combined with record 737 output, have contributed to a production logjam at the planemaker’s Seattle-area factory. Like Airbus SE, Boeing is starting to feel the consequences of its fastest-ever tempo for narrow-body aircraft as suppliers struggle to keep pace.

          Drupal Association blog: 2018 Q1 & Q2 Financials Statement Summary      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Our board of directors is responsible for the Drupal Association’s financial health and as part of their duty, they review and then vote to approve monthly financial statements. The board met virtually on July 25, 2018 and voted to approve the Q1 & Q2 2018 financial statements, which can be found here.

Each month we compare our results against the financial KPIs we have set with the advice of our virtual CFO, Summit CPA. These KPIs were set to help us focus on increasing our net income so we can build a stronger cash reserve to ensure the organization’s sustainability.  

Our 2018 Financial KPIs are:

  • Cash Reserve: have a cash balance of 15% of Total Revenue
  • Net Income Profit Margin: end 2018 with a net income profit of 4%
  • Increase our Non-Event Revenue to $1.6M
  • DrupalCon Profit Margin of 27%

As of our June financial statement, which was approved by the board, the organization is tracking well against these KPIs.

Table showing KPI analysis reflecting actual results through June 30, 2018 end of year conservative budget
KPI analysis through June 30 is looking positive for money in the bank, net income, non-event revenue, and event profit margin.

You can see that April was lower than the ideal target, due to missing revenue in a couple of areas. One with DrupalCon Nashville, where ticket sales came in lower than expected, and the second was some hosting contracts coming in later. These contracts will be reflected in future months.

We will monitor all KPIs through the year to ensure we are on track. However, one KPI is now complete: Nashville profit margin. DrupalCon Nashville was forecasted to come in at a net profit of $445K at the close of the conference in April, 2018, or 22%. While training tickets under-performed, resulting in a lower than expected ticket revenue, we still exceeded our net profit goal due to a decrease in expenses and an increase in sponsorship revenue. The final net profit was $481K or 25% which is 2% under the set KPI.  

DrupalCon Nashville Snapshot of costs and revenue
Details for the DrupalCon Nashville forecast and actual income

While we did exceed our net profit forecast, it should be noted that this event did not generate as much for the project as past DrupalCons. This is because Nashville’s cost per attendee was higher than usual due to the location. However, at the time of selecting the venue, it was the best option compared to the other available cities. The Drupal Association continues to seek ways to diversify revenue so we are not so reliant on one event to fund the project.

The overall trend shows Nashville coming in lower than recent DrupalCon North America net income margins

Drupalcon is evolving and we are making changes.  While the programming, speakers, sessions make up the core of DrupalCon, our event staff is retooling and creating more value to serve everyone in the Drupal ecosystem.

We would not be able to do our mission-driven work without the support and contributions of our community. Contributions come in many forms, through the purchase of DrupalCon tickets and event sponsorships, through our Supporters and Members, Drupal.org sponsors, recruiters who post jobs on Drupal Jobs and many other fantastic ways our community supports the Drupal ecosystem. We are deeply grateful for everyone who contributes time, talent, and treasure to move Drupal forward.

Thank you!

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.

          The Fact Is Nothing Is Going to Done About Climate Change Until It Kills Lots of White People      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The average white person only wakes up when it's: "time to die." by Charles Mudede


This is the world we live in, and those in power know this world very well. What is between climate change and meaningful human action is simply white American lives. As long as they are not directly threatened, we can continue business as usual. Cars can burn fossil fuels with total abandon, fires can burn huge portions of US states, houses can fall into the sea. But if white lives are not lost, we can pretty much not change a damn thing about this society. Climate denial has nothing but this as its firm and dependable political support. It is indeed the central platform of the US's dominant political party, the GOP. And many middle-class whites are aware of this fact in the back of their minds. It is their price for what soul singer D'Angelo called a slice of the "devil's pie."

And there is plenty to go around.

Indeed, we can expect that, as climate change worsens, the government will spend more on white lives for no other purpose than to maintain the current economic order, which is largely structured to grow, endlessly, the profits of energy corporations. The market capitalization for just the gas and oil sector alone is over $1 trillion. They have the money. They have the data. They have huge political influence. And I'm going to say it like it is: In the light of this influence, Trump appears as no accident of history. It's not a miracle that the racist somehow seems to never sink no matter what he says or does. You can always walk on water if the future of climate change non-action is the recognition and defense of white American lives.

We only have to see last year's hurricane season to find evidence for this claim. Examine the government's responses to destruction in Texas and Florida and to that in Puerto Rico. It's day and night. No one even talks about Texas and Florida anymore. Puerto Rico, which only got most of its power back this week (just in time for the next hurricane season), is still in the news because it lost, according to report from Harvard University, "at least 4,645." This was more than 70 times the official count of 64. But that high number still means nothing to most white people. It could easily be 400 times or 800 times or 1600 times that, and still the fortress of climate change denial would be safe from terrified whites. Those lives on that island are black and brown. They do not matter. Politically, the average white person only wakes up when it's: "time to die."

At the beginning of the 21st century, we see the final expansion of American racism, which had its roots in the justification of robbing labor from black Africans. American socialism, which became politically potent after the crash of 1929 (entered the mainstream as the New Deal), was kept in check by this racism (political compromises to Southern Democrats). The GOP's rise in the 1980s was made possible by this racism. And now, at the global stage, as the planet faces a devastation whose scale will be apocalyptic, we find any attempt to address it is again checked by American racism.

This post and its reasoning dubs this passage in Ta-Nehisi Coates's Between the World and Me:

The Earth is not our creation. It has no respect for us. It has no use for us. And its vengeance is not the fire in the cities but the fire in the sky. Something more fierce than Marcus Garvey is riding on the whirlwind. Something more awful than all our African ancestors is rising with the seas. The two phenomena are known to each other. It was the cotton that passed through our chained hands that inaugurated this age. It is the flight from us that sent them sprawling into the subdivided woods. And the methods of transport through these new subdivisions, across the sprawl, is the automobile, the noose around the neck of the earth, and ultimately, the Dreamers themselves.

          Did Mom Just Come Out to Her Queer Kids?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Savage Love Letter of the Day by Dan Savage

1517598297-1516999045-savage-letter-of-the-day-stamp-2018.jpg

My brother (gay) and I (pan) have long suspected our mom might fall somewhere on the queer spectrum. Yesterday she said "we" and "us" in reference to queer humans. I didn't say anything because my brain couldn't process quickly enough. But, did my mom just come out? Do we follow up? Was this an invitation to ask questions? Or just a show of solidarity for her queer kids?

Did Mom Out Herself?

The one acronym that rules includes us all—LGBTQIA and its many metastasizing variations—features at least one A, DMOH, and often two. One of those As stands for "asexual" and the other stands for "ally." So it's possible that your mother used "we" and "us" not because she identifies with the L, B, or T, but because she identifies with the A-for-ally, since she's an ally to to her G and P kids. But the only person who knows for sure what's up with your mom is your mom, obviously, so you're gonna have to ask her what she meant by that "we" and that "us."

That was too easy—so, hey, bonus question after the jump...

Hey Dan! I'm a long time listener of the podcast and I have a sex question that I'm sure you've answered a million times but here we go. I just ended an LTR that was way past it's expiry date. I got on Tinder wanting to just have some fun for a while—basically, my recently terminated relationship was sexless and I was dying to get fucked. Somehow I ended up meeting a great guy and everything's going great... except for one thing, of course: sex. We can fool around and he'll get really hard and we can get each other off just fine. But when it's time to actually have sex he goes soft. He's said a ton of times it's nerves and that it's just been a really long time for him and that's why he's so nervous. And I'm obviously understanding but I thought it would just be a something that was a one-off or like a couple times but this has happened like 10+ times. It's only been a few weeks so am I just being impatient? Do you have any tips? I've tried touching him and getting really close to just kind of switch my hands to my vagina but that doesn't even work. I'm trying not to rush all of this, and the sexual things we do ARE great but my relationship that I needed out of was completely sexless for so long and your girl needs to get FUCKED. Help!

Frequently Underwhelming Couplings Keeping Me Enervated

First, FUCKME, all those other ways you and the new guy are getting each other off? That's sex too. All those presumably non-PIV things you're doing to each other? Totally sex, totally counts. Which means you are having sex—actual sex, actually—with this guy, FUCKME, even if you aren't having the particular kind of sex you enjoy most and got on Tinder to find: sex of the PIV variety.

The go-to advice in a situation like this is to take the pressure off—tell him there's no rush, FUCKME, and when you head to bed, tell him you have no expectations. If he can fuck you, that would be great; if he can't fuck you, there are plenty of other equally great things you can do together. Enjoy what's working for the time being and, with any luck, soon he'll relax enough to get past the psychological block that's chasing his erections away at the crucial moment.

That said, you're newly single, you met this guy on Tinder, you've only been seeing him for three weeks. Presumably you two aren't committed and/or exclusive at this stage, FUCKME, which means you're free to keep seeing this guy while seeking out other opportunities, i.e. PIV sex with guys whose cocks don't get soft at that crucial moment.

But if you're a one-man-at-a-time kinda gal or if he's made it clear he's a one-woman-at-at-time kind guy—if you're a star-crossed pair serial monogamists—give him three more weeks and 10+ more times to pull himself (and his erections) together. But don't tell him that, of course, as it ensure the problem won't go away before his time runs out.

The “blue wave” came through Blabbermouth's home state on Tuesday, and Dan Savage, Rich Smith, and Eli Sanders talk about what happened — including some drama Rich got into with local Republicans trying to pull an “enemy of the people” move on his right to report.

They also talk about the Ohio special election, in which there’s a virtual tie between the Democrat and Republican candidates in a district that Republicans would normally win easily. That’s great news for wave-trackers, but: Did the Green Party candidate in this special Ohio election spoil the Dem’s chances of turning a virtual tie into an outright win? Dan has some thoughts.

After that, Katie Herzog explains what QAnon is and why Republican “thought leaders” are trying to keep Trump’s base from believing the conspiracy theory.

Finally, Dan offers a tribute to Charlotte Rae and Eli talks about a new, must-see documentary called Dark Money.

Plus, as always the music of Ahamefule J. Oluo.

          Finally, People Are Talking About Climate Change. But Is It Too Late?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
by Katie Herzog

Something strange is happening in America right now: People are talking about climate change.

Before The Stranger saved and then quickly crushed my body, mind, and spirit, I worked for Grist, the Seattle-based online magazine with a focus on climate change. (Apropos of nothing, Grist unceremoniously booted me and four out of five of the staff writers a few days after Donald Trump took office, but I'm not bitter. Really. The office was always freezing and it's going to get creamed when the earthquake comes.) While I was at Grist, what I noticed through writing about climate change five days a week, was that no one gave a shit. We had a dedicated audience of 6 to 10 commentors (everyone's favorite was a gay man in New York who primarily used the comment section to hit on a very cute young intern named Sam), but for the most part, people just didn't care. Nothing makes someone's eyes glaze over faster than the word's "climate change."

It's kind of wild how little people are paying attention: climate change is leading to huge increases in human suffering as parts of the world dry up and others flood, burn, and blister. The repercussions of this man-made phenomenon are genuinely terrifying, and not just for tree-huggers and nature-lovers. There's some evidence, for instance, that the conflict in Syria was in part sparked by climate change-connected drought and subsequent food shortages, which then led to the migrant crisis currently embroiling Europe... which, in turn, led to a resurgence of white nationalism and xenophobia in places like Italy, France, and the UK. Climate change touches everything, and yet, we really don't talk about it much. Broadcast news organizations ABC, NBC, CBS, and Fox had a combined total of 50 minutes of climate change coverage in 2016. That's less than the Jolie-Pitt breakup. The world is burning, and we're over here freaking out about celebrity divorce.

In recent weeks, however, there's been a noticeable uptick in climate change news, inspired, I'm guessing, by the catastrophic wildfires currently burning through California. Climate change is easy to ignore until a wildfire threatens to destroy your neighborhood. Here's how Google has tracked in the term over the past 30 days.

In the midst of these disasters, NPR has been discussing climate change every day, and the networks and cable changes have at least mentioned the words. Even Jimmy Kimmel talked about it on his show Tuesday night, with a message that was designed to reach the heart of one Donald J. Trump:

But will an uptick in coverage have any affect on public policy? And is there still time to correct this collision course? According to a report released this week by a international team of climate scientists, we're reaching the "too-little-too-late" stage of ecological collapse. The paper portrays a potential future of dead forests, rapid sea level rise, and storms that make Sandy, Maria, and Katrina look minor if we don't transition to a carbon-neutral economy yesterday. It does not look good.

The media immediately jumped on the study, issuing dire headlines about the end of mankind, but the paper's author took issue with this sort of coverage. She pointed out on Twitter that people probably weren't reading the study if their takeaway from it was that it's too late. The truth, according to the researchers, is that it's not too late—at least, if we actually take action on fossil fuels now, not later. Of course, Donald Trump is the kind of man who thinks wind turbines are ugly and diesel exhaust smells like money, so under this administration and with Republicans in control of Congress, the hope of any sort of progressive action on climate change is smaller than none. Still, there's an election coming in a mere 90 days. If we're going to get leaders in office who are willing to help up save ourselves, now may very well be our last chance to do it. There's no excuse this time; each and everyone of us who is concerned about the fate of the planet—and our species—must vote.

          That Summer, a Doc For Those Who Can't Get Enough of Grey Gardens      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Those who can't get enough of the Beales are likely to feel as if they've discovered a long-lost family photo album. by Kathy Fennessy

ThatSummer.jpg

Once upon a time, Grey Gardens was like a dark, tantalizing secret shared among friends. It's not that the filmmakers, Albert and David Maysles (Salesman, Gimme Shelter), were unknown, or that their subjects, Big and Little Edie Bouvier Beale, weren't of historical interest, but there was a certain air of disrepute to the whole affair. Unlike their other direct-cinema documentaries, Grey Gardens, which depicts lives of distressing squalor and fantastical delusion, plays more like a movie intended for drive-ins and grindhouses.

Since 1975, however, the film has become respectable—a camp classic, a black comedy, and an inspiration-generator for fashion designers. It's also joined the Library of Congress and the Criterion Collection and spawned a play, a musical, a spoof, a made-for-cable movie, and a sequel constructed by Albert after his brother's passing. Now Göran Hugo Olsson (The Black Power Mix Tape 1967-1975) has unearthed the Beales' first go-round with the star-making machinery through 16mm footage directed by Peter Beard in 1972 plus material from Jonas Mekas and Andy Warhol. It's called That Summer. In their narration, Beard and Lee Radziwill (Jackie Kennedy Onassis's sister) recall their attempt to make a film about the East Hampton of the Bouviers' youth.

Instead of a full-fledged film, however, Olsson's documentary feels more like a prologue and an epilogue rolled into one. When Beard and Radziwill abandoned the project, the Maysles took over. If there's nothing especially necessary about That Summer, those who can't get enough of the Beales are likely to feel as if they've discovered a long-lost family photo album. As the now 80-year-old Beard concludes wistfully, "They were in a dream world, and it was okay."

          Mayor Durkan Is Hell-Bent on Killing the Center City Connector      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
by David Cole

Future corridor of the Center City Connector. For Mayor Durkan, no lie is too big in order to stop the project.
Future corridor of the Center City Connector. For Mayor Durkan, no lie is too big in order to stop the project. DAVID COLE

This past spring I compared Mayor Durkan’s decision to “pause” the Center City Connector with a similar idiotic decision by Cincinnati Mayor John Cranley in 2013.

Upon due reflection, I owe the mayor an apology—Mayor Cranley, that is. Jenny Durkan has proven herself to be far more dishonest and conniving than John Cranley could ever hope to be.

John Cranley, to his credit, at least made his intentions clear about what he planned to do to the city’s under-construction streetcar project if he were to be elected as mayor. He vowed to kill the project, and when he got elected, he did his best to do so. It was only a groundswell of grassroots activism that flipped two members of city council to a veto-proof supermajority in favor of completing the project. But for all of John Cranley’s faults, which are many, at least we knew what we were in store for.

Jenny Durkan, by contrast, is a master of Seattle-style passive-aggression. Her own campaign page—conveniently taken offline since I linked to it in my last column about the streetcar—touted the Center City Connector’s benefits. At campaign forums, she made sure to follow her consultants’ advice and at least pretend to be in favor of public transit and bike lanes.

Her actions as mayor to date, though, show where her true feelings about public transit lie, and it’s not a pretty picture.

When Durkan first paused the Center City Connector, she commissioned a study (with a six-figure price tag, no less) to determine why the project was supposedly running over-budget. That report, which was to have been made public no later than June 19th, still hasn’t yet been released to the public.

I can guess at its findings.

The cost increases are most likely due to scope creep—that’s when the city decides to build a streetcar and a dozen other city agencies use that as an excuse to add to the project their own new utility lines, street lights, and anything else that’s been sitting on their wish list for a while—and the fact that literally every construction project in the nation is facing rising costs due to labor shortages, Trump’s trade wars, and a construction boom. Contractors and their subcontractors are in a position to name their price because they have people breaking down their doors to build stuff. My colleagues and I are dealing with these issues on our own projects; it certainly isn’t limited to transit projects.

And the study most likely concludes that, despite these cost increases, canceling the project at this stage will cost nearly as much as finishing it—and cancelling it will also cause long-term damage to the city’s credibility when applying for federal grants for future transit projects. In other words, kiss light rail to Ballard and West Seattle goodbye.

It is any wonder Durkan doesn’t want the study released to the public? If my educated guesses are correct, the study makes Durkan look stupid for pausing the project. And I'm pretty confident that I'm on the right track here—because if the study said the streetcar was a boondoggle that should never be built, Durkan would be shouting its findings from the top of the Space Needle and hand-delivering the study itself to every household in Seattle.

Instead Durkan went with Underhanded Plan B: Put out a press release saying the ten new streetcars the city just ordered are too big to fit the tracks and the maintenance barn. “We just need to find a media outlet credulous enough to report our press release verbatim without doing any independent fact-checking,” an aide probably said.

Seattle Times: “Hold my beer.”

Local transit advocates and bloggers jumped upon the Seattle Times story like flies on a pile of shit, digging up the technical specifications online and pointing out that the differences between the new streetcars and current ones are negligible.

Let’s take the track gauge, for example. Standard Gauge is 4 feet, 8 ½ inches (1435mm) between the inside faces of the rails, and it’s been that way since the British invented railroads during the Industrial Revolution. That’s why it’s called Standard Gauge. With only a small handful of exceptions, every transit system, every streetcar, every commuter railroad, and every freight railroad in the United States—and throughout much of the world—uses Standard Gauge tracks.

This isn’t rocket surgery. Durkan claiming the new streetcars are of a different track gauge is like the salesman at Home Depot claiming the electric appliances sold at Lowe’s don't run on the kind of electricity in your home's electrical outlets.

The Seattle Times eventually updated its story to reflect the technical specifications, but the damage had already been done. Fox News, ever eager to paint liberal Seattle as a bunch of incompetents, as on the story within minutes. (Ironically, it was Durkan herself who was made to look like the idiot.) As they say, a lie gets around the world before the truth can get its pants on.

As it turns out, Durkan had simply been following the script of another Cincinnati sage, one who took place long before Mayor Cranley ever assumed office. Back in the 1920s, Cincinnati was building a subway system. But inflation and materials shortages were causing costs to skyrocket, and a new administration took charge in City Hall. Before long, stories were leaked to gullible newspapers that the curves in the tunnels were too tight for the subway trains. Those stories live on as urban legend in Cincinnati today, but in reality, the tunnels were built to the exact same specifications as what is now the MBTA Red Line in Boston. But the lies worked, and two miles of tunnels and uncompleted four station shells now sit abandoned under Central Parkway just north of downtown.

The new mayor of the time, Murray Seasongood, is still looked upon as a “reformer” even as the Cincinnati area chokes on car exhaust. With Seattle now copying so many of Cincinnati’s past mistakes, I wouldn’t be shocked to see Jerry Springer become our next mayor. But then, maybe he’d be an improvement over Durkan.

Seattle's Center City Connector has been through years of planning, design, public hearings, and Seattle Process. City Council has voted to approve it. Promises have been made, and federal grants have been approved. For Durkan to kill the project now, via a deceitful end run around all that public input, is so dictatorial a move that Trump himself would approve. (Memo to Mayor Durkan: Nobody gives a flying fuck how many photo ops you take with refugees on the Mexican border so long as you're acting like a Trump surrogate here at home.)

If Mayor Durkan doesn’t want her mayoralty to be looked upon as an unfortunate mistake in Seattle’s history, she needs to resume construction on the Center City Connector post-haste. And if she won’t do it, a veto-proof majority of City Council needs to step in and provide the leadership that Durkan is apparently incapable of.

You can and should sign the petition demanding that the city build the Center City Connector now.

          PSA: Seriously, Stop Lighting Things on Fire!!!      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Add this fire to the ever-growing list of fires. by Nathalie Graham

There’s a white semi-truck parked on Harvard Street behind the Pike and Broadway QFC that was lit on fire at about 8:30 a.m. this morning, according to the Seattle Fire Department.

The innards of the truck are all ash, the hatch and the roof are now just smoldering remains. Two firefighters work with axes to extinguish any remaining flames on the inside of the truck. Other firefighters are coiling up a firehose that’s still dripping from use. The rest of that water is coursing down the Harvard Street gutter. White firefighting foam coats the pavement.

“We’re investigating a fire that sprung up out the blue,” said Lieutenant Tim Frank. “It may have been intentionally set.”

Arson? During a burn ban? Again?? C’mon guys, we talked about this YESTERDAY.

QFC didn't know anything, couldn't confirm if it was one of their trucks that caught fire, and wouldn't say anything more without a media release.

One of their security guards, who declined to be named, said customers had spotted the fire first and called 911.

Upon closer inspection of the pictures, some of the truck's contents that escaped unscathed and, to The Stranger's untrained eye, look like containers of instant ramen and Annie's Shells & White Cheddar mac n' cheese.

Its like a game of iSpy but with more fire.

UPDATE, 12:20 pm: The Seattle Fire Department has confirmed that pallets on a semi-truck were ignited. It was a set fire.

          Inbox Jukebox Track of the Day: The Aquatic Blissout of "High Tide" by Former Seattle Ambient-Music Producer Jake Muir      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Former Seattle producer Jake Muir rides a new wave of aquatic ambient music on the deeply peaceful "High Tide." by Dave Segal

The beat(ification) goes on.
The beat(ification) goes on. Patricia Castaneda

Jake Muir droned and zoned briefly and brightly in Seattle's experimental-electronic-music underground for a few years before heading down to LA in early 2018 to try to get into the soundtrack/sound-design game. Before that, though, he released a strong LP on Further Records, Muara (2016), under the Monadh alias and another top chiller on Dragon's Eye, Acclimation (2017). He also played Corridor Fest and some Chapel Performance Space gigs, but in general, Muir flew under the radar of most heads.

Since moving south, Muir's released a new album for Manchester, England's Sferic Records, Lady's Mantle. The nine-track opus floats on a wave of radically altered, microscopic samples from a famous rock band. The sonic alchemy is so extreme, though, you'd never be able to discern the source. More important than that fact is the result: serene ambient aquascapes that do what the most earnest New Age records strive for, but without the belabored liner notes and overplayed "nature" snippets. It might be hyperbole to say that "High Tide" is healing music, but if it doesn't lower your heart rate and massage your overtaxed mind and tense muscles into a state of deep relaxation, I'll be quite surprised. Hearing it during this heatwave is like an icy aural bath that centers you while keeping reality at a safe distance... for four-and-a-half minutes, at least.

          Let Farmers Sell Their Own Pot      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
by Lester Black

Originally published on May 23, 2018.

Imagine this: The next time you buy pot, you get to shake hands with the person who grew it. You can ask the actual farmer if they used pesticides, or which strain is especially good right now, or which one is best for sleeping and which is best for fucking.

If you live in Seattle or anywhere in Washington, this is of course completely illegal. Our state's weed laws put a big fat wall between customers and farmers, barring producers from opening stores or directly selling their goods in farmers markets. That disconnects customers from the people who grow their weed and puts small businesses at a serious disadvantage.


          Counterpoint: I Don’t Hate Pineapple Pizza, Because It's Pizza      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
by Leilani Polk

I am so hungry right now.
I am so hungry right now. isuaneye/Getty

After reading Mudede’s rant against pineapple pizza, I can’t stop thinking about pineapple pizza.

Maybe it’s because I’m gluten-free and don’t eat much pizza anymore, and maybe it’s because of this fact that, after feeling pretty indifferent towards pizza before becoming GF, then becoming obsessed with it because I couldn’t eat it anymore, I want all pizzas. Like, every time I see someone walking down Broadway with a Domino’s Pizza box, and that bready aroma goes wafting by, my mouth waters. And I was never a fan! Never! If I had to eat corporate pizza, the Hut was always my go-to. Then Westshore Pizza, which you guys don’t have here (it’s a chain in Tampa Bay).

So, I guess it has something to do with the GF factor. But… I didn’t hate pineapple pizza before I stopped eating pizza. In fact, there was a brief period in my high school years that I loooved it. I was all, put that Hawaiian pizza in my mouth please, now.

It’s weird they call it Hawaiian pizza—and kind of culturally fucked up, because apparently, it was conceived in Canada, with credit for that particular pizza flavor profile claimed by Greek-Canadian Sam Panopoulos, who says he did it first, in 1962 at his restaurant, Satellite in Chatham, as inspired by the mix of savory and sweet flavors in Chinese dishes and his experience eating pizza, which amounted to liking the pie he tried during a brief stop in Naples while emigrating by boat from Greece to Canada in the mid-1950s. So I guess you can’t blame him.

But also, I’ve always thought the best thing about pizza was that you can put whatever the fuck you want on it. I mean, when I was eating it, which wasn’t all the time (because as mentioned earlier, I wasn’t pizza’s No. 1 fan until it became my colon's No. 1 enemy), I didn’t even have toppings on it. I was a plain cheese all the way kind of girl, as toppings got in the way of all that cheese and bread that was torturing my insides.

The addition of pineapple to the traditional mix of tomato sauce and cheese—sometimes with added saltiness via ham or bacon—really isn’t that novel or that big of a deal. So, why get so up in arms about it? Enjoy your pizza how you want, and fuck all those people who rag on you for it. (Sorry Mudede.)

          Boring Report: New Machines on the Scene      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
by Christopher Frizzelle

Two weeks ago, a blue thing appeared.
In the last week of July, I got home from work and this blue thing, seen above, had appeared onsite. CF

If you're not familiar with Boring Report, um, not a lot happens. You can get caught up on Boring Report here.

Anyway, the blue thing. What is it? A slingshot? A crane?

Okay, maybe its not quite as eager as that trackhoe.*
Even by the light of day the next morning, I could not tell. CF

Whatever it is, it looked ready to work. Eager.

Okay, maybe not quite as eager as that trackhoe.*

Big ups to the cement trucks.
Later on the scene: more things. CF

A day or two after the blue thing appeared, the white thing appeared. Pretty sure the white thing is the sibling or cousin of the blue thing although I'm no constructionologist.

Big ups to the cement trucks.

Look, some new machines.
Here they are on the opposite side of the site doing god knows what. CF

What you can't see well in this photo (at all) is that the blue thing is inserting a giant drill into the ground.

I realized that by standing and watching for a while. Even though the transit station is blocking a good view of the blue thing (as you can see), after standing and watching for a while I could decipher that it's a drill—just below the roofline of the light rail station, a gigantic drill bit turned as it churned down into the ground, then pulled up soil in a column, and then shook itself free of the fresh soil, and then, with a clean drill bit, dug into the earth again, and so on.

Presumably they're making room for columns for the foundation or poking holes in the Earth's crust so magma can spew out or something cool like that.

I still cant tell you what the white thing is.
I still can't tell you what the white thing is.

Looks a little lazy if you ask me. Maybe I just caught it at the wrong time. Or maybe it's the thing that pumps the cement from the mixing trucks into the holes the blue thing makes.

Don't ask me! We report, you decide.

To answer the burning question I know is on your mind: How are the trackhoes doing?

The trackhoes are doing great.
The trackhoes are doing great.

* Hat tip to Slog commenter kristofarian who filled me in on backhoes vs. trackhoes.

          Death Cab for Cutie's Ben Gibbard on Why the Showbox Should Be Saved      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Why has Deathcab for Cutie's Ben Gibbard become such an outspoken supporter for protecting the Showbox Theater? by Lester Black

Ben Gibbard at City Council chambers on Monday waiting to give public comment.
Ben Gibbard at City Council chambers on Monday waiting to give public comment. Lester Black

Ben Gibbard has played nearly 25 shows at the Showbox theater, mostly with his band Death Cab for Cutie, but he didn’t skip a beat when I asked him what was his most memorable experience at the historic venue.

It was a run of three shows in 2004 just after Death Cab for Cutie’s Transatlanticism album was released, before that record went on to sell half a million records and launch Gibbard into international fame that has included world tours, number one hits, and two certified platinum records and five more certified gold records.

“You know, growing up in this area I couldn’t fathom playing one show at the Showbox let alone three,” Gibbard said. “And to just have this energy over the course of the three days every time we walked in there feeling like a Friday night hometown show was just pretty incredible.”

Over the course of the last two weeks, Gibbard has become an outspoken proponent for saving the Showbox from being demolished and replaced with a 44-story, $100-million apartment building. A few minutes before I talked to Gibbard he was standing at a podium in front of Seattle’s City Hall pleading for the council to save the historic venue. To Gibbard, losing the Showbox wouldn’t just be losing one of the city’s venues, it would be losing a nightclub that is internationally respected.

“What upsets me so much about the Showbox is this is one of those venues in the country and also the world that people outside of this city talk about,” Gibbard said. “San Francisco has the Filmore. Minneapolis has First Avenue. We have the Showbox. And this is one of those rooms that is not only part of our cultural history but it’s also a place that people around the country and around the world enjoy coming to and playing.”

Over 90,000 people that have voiced their support for saving the Showbox from destruction but some of the most ardent supporters of the Seattle nightclub are not the concertgoers but the musicians that have played the historic venue. National acts that have little connection to Seattle other than an occasional tour stop have expressed their support and local musicians, some of whom have only gotten the chance to play the big stage once, are proclaiming how exceptional the venue is.

Gibbard said he has personally heard from Jenny Lewis and bands like Spoon lamenting the impending loss of the venue. Gibbard said the intimacy of the large venue, both for performers and for concertgoers, is one of the reasons artists love to play there.

“It’s one of those places in the country where you walk in there either as a performer or as a concertgoer and you feel like this is going to be an event tonight, this is going to be special,” Gibbard said. “When you’re at a show at the Showbox no matter where you are standing you feel like you are very close to the performers. It’s very unique to have a venue that holds 1,200 people that feels that intimate.”

Gibbard said the first show he played at the venue was in 1996 when his former band Pinwheel opened for Modest Mouse, another local act whose journey to international acclaim has included many stops at the Showbox.

Councilmember Kshama Sawant’s attempt to expand the Pike Place Historical District to include and protect the venue sees its next vote this Wednesday at the City Council’s Finance Committee. We’ll see if the protections for the beloved nightclub get any closer to reality.

          What You Need to Know About Last Night's Primary Election Results in Washington State      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
It was a good night for Democrats in Washington State. by Heidi Groover

He quoted a Stranger article even after his party tried to refuse The Stranger entry to their election night event. the stranger

It was a big night for Democrats across Washington, though at least one race remains too close to call. Here are a few takeaways from Tuesday’s primary election:

WE CAN’T SAY FOR SURE WHO’LL FACE DINO ROSSI IN THE 8TH

The only thing we really know for sure about the race in Washington’s 8th District is that Republican Dino Rossi will be one of the two candidates heading into the general election in November.

Rossi pulled in 43 percent of the vote. If you add the other Republican and Republican-ish candidates, that brings his total to just shy of 48. Collectively, the Democrats pulled in 50 percent of the votes. (Side note: who were the 949 people that voted for Tom Cramer? Show yourselves in the comments.) Rossi didn’t crack 50, and that’s not bad news for the Democrats.

“I think you’ve seen the ceiling for Rossi,” says Washington State Democratic Party Chair, Tina Podlodowski. “The Dems collectively have more than 50 percent of the votes. I’m feeling pretty happy.”

That said, there are still thousands of votes left to be counted in this district, and so some of this math might change.

For now, pediatrician Kim Schrier is leading attorney Jason Rittereiser by 1,369 votes. She sounds hopeful in her statements last night, he sounds grateful and pumped to still be in the running. We’ll see how it plays out over the next few days. But in general, it seems like this toss-up race is going to stay a toss-up. RICH SMITH

HOLY FUCK, LISA BROWN

Eastern Washington is going to see one of the state’s most exciting races this fall and it could knock Cathy McMorris Rodgers—the fourth highest-ranking Republican in the U.S. House—out of office.

Democrat Lisa Brown, who previously worked as a state legislator and chancellor of Washington State University Spokane, was neck-and-neck with McMorris Rodgers in the first returns. McMorris Rodgers has about 47.5 percent of the vote. Brown has about 47 percent. They are separated by just 525 votes. The two will face off in November and the race is sure to attract national attention and money between now and then.

“Looks to me like over 50 percent of people in the district are ready for a change,” Brown told The Stranger over the phone Tuesday night. Brown said her campaign has attracted more than 1,000 volunteers and 10,000 donors. “They feel Congress has become completely dysfunctional with Congressional gridlock and dark money.” Brown says her campaign plans to focus on turning out college students this fall.

While Tuesday’s results are big for Democrats, Caleb Heimlich, chairman of the state Republican Party, tried to play them off Tuesday night. If you combine McMorris Rodgers’ support with the other, lesser known Republicans in the race, Republicans together took just over 50 percent of the vote, Heimlich said Tuesday at the party headquarters in Bellevue.

The response from Tina Podlodowski, chair of the Washington State Democrats, goes back to those college kids Brown is counting on. The 5th District includes private and public colleges that span the political spectrum, including Washington State University, Eastern Washington University, Whitworth University, Whitman College, and Gonzaga University. “That’s where Caleb Heimlich’s math didn’t add up,” Podlodowski said. “The electorate gets a lot younger in November when 60,000 college students flood in.” HEIDI GROOVER

HOLY FUCK, CAROLYN LONG

Carolyn Long’s internal polls were kinda right! The first-time Democratic candidate trails four-term incumbent Jamie Herrera Beutler by 4.5 points in the race for Washington’s 3rd Congressional District, 36.6 to 41.

The two other candidates running as Democrats—Justice Democrat Dorothy Gasque and David McDevitt—pulled in 4.6 points and 8.1 points, respectively. If you add their votes to Long’s total, she’d be sitting at 49.3 percent. If you do the same math for Beutler, she edges Long out with 49.7 percent. That’s pretty close for a race that the non-partisan Cook Political Report scored as “likely Republican,” and for a district that Trump won by 8 points.

“Forty percent is a pathetic showing for an incumbent,” says Washington State Democratic Party chair Tina Podlodowski, refusing to round up for Herrera Beutler.

“Beutler should be worried,” says Long’s spokesperson. “Long feels great and we are looking forward to the next stage of this election.”

But Washington GOP Chair Caleb Heimlich sees the race differently. “If you go back to the 2016 primaries she added 6 points to her total from her August total to her November total. So I think we’re going to be in good shape,” he said.

If Herrera Beutler starts spending her considerable pile of money on attack ads and other media, we’ll know she’s concerned. But until then one thing’s for sure: we got us a race down there in Southwest Washington. RICH SMITH

Sarah Smith at her election night party. Will she make it through the primary?
Sarah Smith at her election night party. Will she make it through the primary? The Stranger

HOLY FUCK, SARAH SMITH

But not in the same way! Sarah Smith is no Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and it showed in her numbers Tuesday night.

In the first drop of ballots, it's not even clear Sarah Smith made it through the primary to face 11-term incumbent Democrat Adam Smith. As it stands, Republican Doug Basler is in second place with about 26.6 percent of the vote. Adam Smith is out front with 50.3 and Sarah Smith trails with 23.15.

Fewer than 3,000 votes separate Sarah Smith from Basler and there are more ballots to be counted, so it's not over. "This is all completely expected by our campaign,” Smith told supporters in a video message Tuesday night. “We totally knew it was going to play out this way." But it's not the showing Sarah Smith needed to prove voters in the district are as tired of Adam Smith as she is. HEIDI GROOVER

HOLY FUCK, HOLY IS LOSING IN THE 6TH LD

Democrat Jessa Lewis appears to be winning her race against anti-gay Republican Jeff Holy to represent the Spokane area in the State Senate. That’s no thanks to SEIU 1199, who tossed Holy 500 bucks in the primary for his support of nurses getting breaks at work. Hey, union, guess what? Jessa Lewis is pro nurses-getting-breaks, too! She’s also pro-choice, pro-worker, and pro-universal healthcare. Unlike Jeff Holy! Jesus!

And Holy’s not the only Republican incumbent who’s losing. The Seattle Times reports at least 11 Republican House members are behind their Democratic challengers.

While Democrats have for the past few years held only slim majorities in Olympia, the state Democratic Party vowed this year to fight for seats long held by Republicans. In these first results from Tuesday’s primary, that strategy appears to be paying off.

The party is now “running in every race in every place,” said Washington State Democrats Chair Tina Podlodowski. “We’re also talking about two things quite a bit: jobs and healthcare… We should find a way to get universal healthcare covered—I think we have an opportunity to do that in Washington State with a serious Democratic majority.”

Several Democrats, mostly those running in safe Democratic seats, have promised to champion single payer healthcare next session.

Meanwhile, Democrats could also be competitive in several state senate races where the seats are currently held by Republicans but those Republicans won less than 50 percent of the vote. In Federal Way's 30th District, Republican Senator Mark Miloscia currently has 48.4 percent. Democrat Claire Wilson will make it through the primary to face Miloscia. In the 42nd District, including Ferndale north of Bellingham, Republican state Senator Doug Ericksen—who flirted with joining the Trump Administration—currently has 45.8 percent of the vote.

One last note here: Voters in the Tacoma area appear to be booting out incumbent state Representative David Sawyer, a Democrat who faces allegations of inappropriate behavior toward young women in Olympia. Eight women told The News Tribune, The Olympian, and the Northwest News Network that Sawyer repeatedly or inappropriately texted them or made comments about their bodies or clothing. Sawyer described his actions as friendly and denied that his behavior was inappropriate. In June, the legislature released the findings of an investigation by an outside lawyer who found Sawyer acted inappropriately and used state resources on personal business. Progressive organizations and the women who accused Sawyer of inappropriate behavior have called on him not to seek reelection. In Tuesday night’s returns, Sawyer was trailing in third place behind Democrat Melanie Morgan and Republican Terry Harder. If those results hold, he won’t make it to the general election.

A CLOSE #WALEG RACE IN WEST SEATTLE

The only real legislative contest in Seattle proper this year is this open state senate seat in the 34th District, which covers West Seattle. Democrats Shannon Braddock and Joe Nguyen will make it through the primary and they are ridiculously close.

Nguyen leads by just 199 votes. That sets up a close contest for the next few months—and one that could get expensive. In the primary alone, Braddock raised about $88,900 to Nguyen’s $41,200.

Braddock is deputy chief of staff for King County Executive Dow Constantine. She is also on the board of Westside Baby, a nonprofit that serves low-income mothers. Nguyen is a Microsoft manager who is on the board of a housing nonprofit.

While the two agree broadly on progressive causes like a capital gains tax, Braddock will likely be cast as the establishment candidate. In her 2015 race for city council, she received support from the Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce. In an interview with the Stranger Election Control Board, she was skeptical of Seattle’s recently passed (then abandoned) head tax on large businesses. Nguyen supported the tax.

Even Nguyen seemed surprised by Tuesday’s results. “I thought we were going to get second place but what?” he said. “We are not fucking around.” HEIDI GROOVER

          Slog AM: Washington Farmers Sweat New Chinese Tariffs, Man with Fake Charities Sued by Bob Ferguson, What's Up with Canada and Saudi Arabia?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Amazon capitalizes on convenience, Rep. Collins indicted, election night by Nathalie Graham

Saudi Arabia puts Canada on blast for its human rights violations... wait.

China’s retaliatory tariffs are no good for Washington farmers: The farmers are anxious. More than $480 million worth of Washington agricultural exports are impacted by Chinese tariffs, reports KING 5. China struck back against Trump’s latest tariffs. It slapped $16 million of tariffs on American goods.

New Yorker sued by WA AG for fake charities: This guy, a New York stockbroker, is heavily involved with organized crime. He’s being sued by Washington State attorney general Bob Ferguson for setting up six fake charities. He’s allegedly done this same thing in eight other states. He hasn’t been charged criminally in Washington State, reports the Seattle Times.

What the fuck is going on between Canada and Saudi Arabia? Good question, glad you asked. The two are in some sort of a human-rights tiff. Canada’s ambassador rebuked Saudi Arabia for arresting human-rights and women’s-rights activists. Saudi Arabia clapped back immediately and expelled the ambassador, giving him 24 hours to get his ugly, yella, no-good keister off its property. Then, Saudi Arabia announced it was canceling all flights to and from Toronto. Now it’s barring all of its citizens from receiving treatment in Canadian hospitals. Saudi Arabia has put Canada’s human-rights policies on blast. Meanwhile, they executed a man by crucifixion today. The worst part? The United States says it’s caught in the middle of this quarrel between its two allies. Doesn’t seem like too hard of a choice here, America.

Durkan loves the Showbox too! But will she act? She’s sending representatives to talk with a real-estate developer about the future of the venue today. She’s not ready to support Council Member Kshama Sawant’s legislation to expand the Pike Place Historic District to cover the Showbox. This extension would include other businesses other than the Showbox, such as a restaurant and a strip club.

Attack the fire from the air: Washington firefighting crews are finding quick successes by utilizing aircraft. According to the Washington Department of Natural Resources, there have been 830 fires so far on the land it oversees. A typical fire season averages 817 fires, according to KING 5. Crews have been knocking out these fires with their “Huey Helicopters, along with eight single-engine Fire Boss aircraft.”

BREAKING: We’re all too familiar with how initial reports like these play out.


Election night breakdown: What do you mean you weren’t keeping up with SECB all night? Yeah, there’s a lot to read, but we had a lot to say. The short list: We got banned from the GOP election night party (but then got let in), Dino Rossi won, Joey Gibson lost, the Washington version of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez didn’t manage to make it through to the next round, and we had to listen to Coldplay on our Uber ride home. There’s probably more. Why don’t you take the morning and catch up?

Election nights outside Washington: It’s still too close to call in the Kansas Republican Primary — a mere 191 votes separate the candidates. This is why voting matters! The Ohio special election is also too close to call. The Republican candidate, Troy Balderson, had a lead of 1,754 votes as of this morning but there are still more than 3,000 ballots yet to be counted. It’s heated!

The Seattle Times write-up about the Automated Fingerprint Identification System levy omits one small detail: That it isn’t just about fingerprint identification. Nah, sorry, voters ignorantly (an assumption) voted to give the Seattle Police Department facial recognition technology. Everything will be fine, right? The police having a database full of our scanned faces can’t possibly be bad… can it?

Don’t get my hopes up, National Weather Service: I am currently sweating in a Capitol Hill Starbucks. It isn’t even 6:30 a.m. yet. Someone was already arrested in here this morning. That’s not about the heat, but it’s been a day already. The good news is that there’s apparently a significant cool down on the way. Maybe even light showers? I won’t believe it until I see it.


But... it's not the end of the week yet, is it? Beat the hump day slump, beat the heat.


He did that:


Amazon continues to thrive off our thirst for convenience: It’s steadily introducing drive-up grocery pick-up at Whole Foods locations. So far, it’s only available in Sacramento, California, and Virginia Beach, Virginia. It’s also only available to Prime Now members, but you could’ve guessed that. Additionally, only Prime Now members will be saved in the Rapture.

New York Republican charged with insider trading: Representative Chris Collins, an outspoken Trump supporter, is having a rough day. Looks like there may be another seat open for the blue wave to scoop up.


Everyone bands together to ban Alex Jones — except Twitter: Jack Dorsey, Twitter CEO, says Alex Jones, notorious conspiracy theorist and flagrant asshole, hasn’t violated Twitter’s rules. YouTube, Facebook, Spotify, and Apple have already banned Jones. This just confirms that Twitter truly is the cesspool we love to hate and cannot bear to stop using.

Maryland man goes to take driving test, forgets about all the drug-dealing paraphernalia in the car: The man, 22, was just trying to get his driver’s license. Nerves must’ve gotten to him — trust me, they got to me like two times during the, uh, two driver’s tests I took — because he forgot about the pound of marijuana in the car. He also forgot about the loaded Glock and the $15,000 in drug-related money. He didn’t get his license. He did get arrested, though.

Tonight's best Seattle entertainment options include: The Trap Kitchen Cookout Tour: Compton 2 Tha 206 (a pop-up lauded by the likes of Nicki Minaj, Kendrick Lamar, and Snoop Dogg), the opening of That Summer, which reveals footage of Edith and Edie Beale not shown in the 1975 documentary Grey Gardens, and The Phantom of the Opera, which Christopher Frizzelle calls "fog-machine technology’s greatest achievement."

          Study: Online Daters Aim 'Out of Their League'      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Most people who use online dating websites seek partners who are out of their league, said a study Wednesday based on heterosexuals in four big US cities. "Both men and women pursued partners about 25 percent more 'desirable' than themselves," said the report in the journal Science Advances. Hardly anyone reached out to people who ranked significantly lower than themselves. People's desirability was determined using a ranking algorithm based on how many messages they received from other popular users on a dating site in New York, Seattle, Boston and Chicago. "If you are contacted by people who are themselves desirable, then you are presumably more desirable yourself," said the study. Using this PageRank algorithm, which is employed by web search engines, researchers could establish a person's "league," which they scientifically coined "hierarchies of desirability." For some at the pinnacle of the dating game, the flurry of messages from would-be suitors was dizzying. "The most popular individual in our four cities, a 30-year-old woman living in New York, received 1,504 messages during the period of observation, equivalent to one message every 30 min, day and night, for the entire month," said the study. While researchers did not reveal the end to this lady's love story, they did find that the majority of daters on the site tended to reach out to people who were ranked higher than themselves. They also tended to send lengthier messages to people deemed higher on the desirability ladder. In most cases, these long-shots fell short. When there is a big gap in desirability between online daters, "there is a pronounced drop in the probability of reply," said the report. And only in Seattle were there signs that long letters were more successful than short messages at getting a potential mate to respond. People have probably been pining for unattainable love interests since the dawn of time. But taking a scientific look at the phenomenon gives cause for hope, according to lead author Elizabeth Bruch, a sociologist at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. "I think a common complaint when people use online dating websites is they feel like they never get any replies," she said. "This can be dispiriting. But even though the response rate is low, our analysis shows that 21 percent of people who engage in this aspirational behavior do get replies from a mate who is out of their league, so perseverance pays off."

          Book Review A Steep Price      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The following review is a special for BlackFive readers provided by Elise Cooper. You can read all of our book reviews and author interviews by clicking on the Books category link in the right side bar. A Steep Priceby Robert Dugoni perfectly balances the character’s professional and personal lives. This sixth book in the series continues with Seattle Violent Crimes homicide detective Tracy Crosswhite and her fellow A-Team colleagues. Although the two cases to solve are not related, Dugoni is able to show how a real precinct works. The first crime has Vic Fazzio (Faz) and his partner investigating the murder of a community activist who stood up to the realities of drug dealing, sex escorts, and gangs. Faz’s determination to nail the obvious suspect leads him to a South Park housing project. He searches for evidence against the menacing Cartel Surano, which is led by Little Jimmy. They are a powerful local gang, dealing in drugs and terrorizing the local community, ensuring that they do not cooperate with the police. Because his partner injured his back Vic is now paired with the newbie, Andrea Gonzalez. Complicating everything is the shooting of the key witness. His and Gonzalez’s account do not mesh and it appears she is trying to frame him over the fatal shot. The other crime has Tracy Crosswhite helping on a missing person’s case. Besides the investigation Dugoni explores many social issues including “sugar dating,” and the different cultural expectations of East Indian women versus the ramifications in contemporary society. After the body turns up in an abandoned well, Tracy wonders if anyone in the victim’s estranged family is responsible. Kavita Mukherjee balked at an arranged marriage and had plans to attend medical school, but her dreams have now been cut short. She was resolute to make it on her own and raised money by having a “sugar daddy” on the side. With people of interest mounting up Tracy is determined to find Kavita’s killer. Dugoni explained, “I got into a UBER with a young guy in the car. We got to talking and he told me he had just been married. I asked if he had dated for a long time and the response, ‘no, it was an arranged marriage.’ He was Eastern Indian and told me he met her twice before the marriage. His parents were the product of an arranged marriage and have been together for thirty years. I was told by him arranged marriages have a lot less divorces. As he was talking I took notes in my head and then started the research.” To help solve the crime Tracy uses a technological angle. Cell phones play an important role and they almost appear to be a secondary character. The important keys include the phone’s location history, the Find My iPhone app that can be shared between phones, and text messages with parental safeguards. It is a subtle warning how technology contributes to less privacy for the individual. Another issue explored is maternity leave. Tracy is pregnant and worries that a new hire, Andrea Gonzalez, is being groomed to take her place. A book quote explains her thinking, “It would be much more difficult for her to argue discrimination if Nolasco (her Captain) replaced her with another woman-especially a minority woman.” “I wrote Tracy as a tough cookie. When on the job she is all business. Her problem is she must deal with a sexist pig, Captain Johnny Nolasco. Her concern is that he brought in a Hispanic woman, Andrea Gonzalez. If a team has an urgent need they can bring in somebody. She can have her job back, but not necessarily with the A Team. She will have to be put back in a position of a detective on a violent crimes team. Yet, she can become the fifth wheel or go to another team. It will be difficult for her to argue she was demoted because of sexism. I think in other circumstances she and Gonzalez would probably have been close instead of clashing as they are now.” The dedication of the book, “To all the women who have suffered from breast cancer and have fought the good fight. Hopefully, someday, research will break through and we finally will have a cure.” In this story, a few of the characters are suffering from breast cancer, Vera included. “I wrote those scenes because some in my family have it. My mother is a breast-cancer survivor of twenty-five years. She went through it when I was younger. I have a sister-in-law who is currently going through this. We lost my cousin’s wife from breast cancer. It really impacts families. It really impacted me. It is very difficult.” These fast-moving plot lines intertwined with some social issues creates a gripping story. Dugoni’s ability to tell a riveting action-packed plot while exploring the topics of arranged marriages, returning to work after a pregnancy, a cancer diagnosis, sex escorts, and drug dealers within a community, makes for a riveting suspense novel.

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.

Vintage Harvest Gold Drawer Organizer-

Here's a perfectly spiffy 1970's flatware tray/organizer in classic harvest gold. It shows signs of general use, but is in very good condition*. This would be perfect for kitchen storage and flatware organization, but it is non specific enough to be very useful just about anywhere, such as a desk or work space. The plastic material is flexible, fairly pliable, and sturdy. 1970's harvest gold goodness, get it while it's hot!

*I just noticed that there is one tiny split that is only detectable when you are flexing it, which you won't be doing while it sits in your drawer holding your stuff. The tiny split in the top corner of the one short section that is running the opposite direction of the rest of them, let's call it the "teaspoon" space. In order to notice this, you would have to be seriously torquing on it, which you won't be. This one super tiny flaw is virtually invisible during normal use, and does not affect the usefulness or attractiveness at all.

This piece measures approximately: 12.5"L x 9.5"W x 1 3/4"D.

Looking for a flatware tray that's more of a sunny golden yellow? Here's a link to another one in my shop, that has a little more of a cheery pop to it:

          Could I Transfer into UW Seattle's Computer Science Program?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Hey all! CC student here from North Seattle College. I have a 3.7 college GPA, but my lowest grades by far are in Calculus (2.9 Calc I, 3.7 Calc II, 3.2 Calc III). 4.0 in Engineering Physics I. 4.0 in all 3 of the Chem sequence. 4.0 in Comp Prog I. 4.0 in a bunch of liberal arts classes. A few questions: 1) Clearly I'm a B math student. Do I even have a shot when it's obvious I'm not great with math? I'm continuing with Vector Calc, Linear Algebra and Diff EQ regardless. 2) Surprise! I'm actually going to be a geology major (once I transfer next year), but am considering tacking on Computer Science as a double major if I'm qualified. I've been told than many geologists/geophysicists spend a large chunk of their postbac work learning how to program and that it's helpful have a background in comp sci. I want to get into a good grad school with a head start. Too ambitious? I'm applying for Fall 2019, and I haven't even been admitted to the UW Earth Science program. (*hopefully* I get admitted. I got 4.0s in every Geo course you can take in CC...still nervous!). 3) For all of the UW CSE students out there, if I were to get admitted, what classes should I target if I want to do scientific modeling and prediction? For geology, my focus is on the physics of natural disasters (volcanos, earthquakes, general plate tectonics) and I want to research and model what's happening beneath the earth's surface in greater detail than what's available now to offer predictions for narrower timetables for events like eruptions, plate faulting etc. (I know this is HARD to do, but no progress will ever be made if no one tries, right?!) My ultimate goal is to get a geology degree and get into a really good grad school for geophysics. I've always dreamed of Stanford, but although I'm a hard worker, I'm not a super brilliant mind. Any advice? I'm 33, and I can take feedback :)

          Transit Death Spiral Continues      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          The Complicated Business of Farming Snails in America      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
article-image

On weekdays, Ric Brewer lives in Seattle and works as a communications manager for a disaster-relief nonprofit. But most weekends, he heads to his five-acre spread in Quilcene, among the foothills leading to Olympic National Forest, to check on his livestock. In this temperate rain forest setting, nearly everything glows an intense green: the grass and Douglas fir and Oregon grape. It’s a good climate for his moisture-loving animals.

It doesn’t take more than weekend visits. As many a frustrated home gardener knows, snails can thrive without much loving care on our part.

Brewer is the owner of Little Gray Farms, named for his stock in trade, the common garden snail, or petit gris. It’s smaller, as the name implies, than the canned escargots that are supposedly French, though they’re more likely processed in France, not grown there. The petit gris is more tender and more palatable, American snail farmers will tell you, and requires less processing.

It’s also healthier for the planet and our bodies than most sources of farmed animal protein. A serving of 100 grams (about three and a half ounces) has only 90 calories, according to the USDA, and snails are lower in fat than salmon. They also require microscopic grazing range—Brewer uses only a half-acre of his property—and the carbon footprint is far lower than for most animals. There’s an exhaustive 2015 Italian study, published in the journal Agricultural Systems, to prove it.

article-image

Maybe the best thing about snails as a food for Americans: Like edible weeds, common garden snails are an invasive species, found in about 20 states. Eating them is, in a way, doing a favor for the environment. In fact, Brewer got the idea for his farm after eating snails he’d foraged.

“I tasted my first one way back in high school, in 1981,” he says. His first cooking attempt with fresh snails—tossed in pasta with olive oil, oregano, and salt and pepper—was successful enough to keep him at it. “I was always kind of transfixed with them not only as a dish but as an animal.”

Snails are unusual for sure. They’re hermaphrodites who throw “love darts” (harpoon-shaped spears of calcium carbonate) at each other during their mating sessions. “They can spend about eight hours in courtship and mating,” Brewer says. “They twine around each other to match up the holes in the sides of their heads where their sex organs are.”

Another fascinating snail fact: Earlier this year, UCLA scientists wrote in the journal eNeuro that they had successfully transplanted primitive memories between snails—in a different species than the petit gris—through RNA injections. (Rather than a memory of a snow globe, think of an untrained snail suddenly acting like a trained one.)

At his farm, Brewer shelters the eggs indoors, raising the baby snails, which have shells from the start, until they’re large enough to live in an outdoor shadehouse. The structure is similar to a greenhouse, but with a woven cloth that rain and air can permeate, and perimeter fencing to thwart his snails’ escape attempts and attempts by rats and raccoons to feast on his crop. He feeds the snails organic vegetables that he grows, sharing his food with them. It takes them a year to mature fully. Then he purges them for a week by giving them only water—an important process done with clams too, which clears out their little digestive systems.

article-image

“They will eat almost anything,” Brewer says. “I’ve seen them in the wild eating dead baby birds.” Some snail farmers go for the more elegant term of “finishing” the snails; one New York operation uses malt barley, saying it improves the flavor.

Snail farming (and eating) is common in many parts of Europe, Africa, and Australia. In the United States, though, Brewer is one of just a handful or petit-gris pioneers, and he says this tasty, environmentally friendly trend is on ice due to a government-bureaucracy nightmare.

It's this problem—and not a lack of interest from eaters—that's chiefly kept snail farming niche. The “ew” factor that turned off many Americans a few decades ago has dissipated in a more globalized culture that seeks out the newest food thrills, especially those based in traditional cuisines. (Authentic Valencian paella, for example, frequently contains snails and rabbit.) Brewer and a handful of other snail wranglers have no problem finding customers among restaurants and private chefs, even though Brewer’s snails, boiled, shelled, and frozen, sell for about $50 a pound or two dollars a snail.

For one special customer in Seattle, he delivers live snails. Tarsan i Jane, owned by Perfecte and Alia Rocher, serves paella each Sunday. Often, that’s the snail-and-rabbit version that was part of Perfecte’s childhood in Valencia.

“By keeping your roots, you maintain some kind of integrity throughout the dish,” Alia says. A few customers’ eyebrows are raised when they read the ingredients, but they all seem happy in the end.

Still, growing Little Gray Farms into Bigger Gray Farms has proved more frustrating and expensive than Brewer ever imagined.

Because the snails are an agricultural pest, the U.S. Department of Agriculture tightly controls their interstate movement. Brewer can’t ship live snails even to a state that’s already infested. And when he needs more stock, he can’t have the animals shipped to him, even though the pests are established in Washington. He can’t just forage for snails on his property because they prefer groomed gardens and tilled fields. But right now, he can’t get his hands on the snails from places such as California, perhaps the snail capital of the U.S., that would love to get rid of them.

Still, Brewer is determined to make snail farming in America a thing. He’s created the Snail Raising Association of North America, an admittedly tiny trade group, to offer snail-husbandry advice, encourage others to take up gastropod wrangling, and advocate for looser restrictions. This isn’t anything like giant fields of corn, concentrated animal feeding operations, and other large agribusinesses that are better set up to absorb the costs of federal regulatory details and lobby for and receive government support. The USDA needs to think beyond common industrialized monocrops, Brewer says, and look to the foods of the future than can be sustainably raised by microbusinesses.

“In the right areas and with the proper safeguards, snails can be responsibly raised and a good source of nutrition,” he says. The snail isn’t native to Central Europe either, yet snail raising there is a profitable business for small-scale farmers. “While technically USDA will allow snail farming, the obstacles are expensive and unduly stringent.”

To comply with the federal government’s requirements, Brewer has built a fully contained indoor building so that he can receive snails from out of state. They have to be shipped in three containers: a box within a box within a box. The new building has only one door, with a vestibule before the snail area (think a space station airlock) to prevent escapes. Homeland Security required a six-foot-high fence around the building to discourage agricultural terrorism, he says, complete with “Keep Out” signs. Meeting all the rules is costing Brewer around $25,000.

A USDA spokesman said the agency would respond to Brewer’s critiques, but despite repeated requests, it never did. That said, snail wrangler Frederick Dargenton, owner of SoCal Escargot, sympathizes with Brewer’s problems but doesn’t share them.

Dargenton lives in California, otherwise known as garden-snail heaven. California has the temperate climate snails need, and its vast, irrigated agricultural fields, along with well-watered suburban yards, provides moisture and a feast of edibles. The snails devour citrus and avocado trees, strawberries, you name it. So Dargenton doesn’t need to breed snails; he forages them from organic farms that want these pests removed.

By foraging locally, Dargenton’s business doesn’t need to ship in triple-boxed snails. And while he sells some frozen snails outside of California, living in a state of 40 million means the French former chef—who hates the big, rubbery, tinny flavored snails found canned in supermarkets—has plenty of local customers for his live mollusks.

In contrast, Brewer’s imported snails won’t live in the wild until they are harvested for food. Once the snails arrive from distant origins, they will spend their entire lives in his new building, a little like the Hotel California. They’ll breed there, and their offspring will know no environment beyond its walls. The only way they’re allowed to leave is by dying—and being transformed from marauding mollusk to sustainably raised protein for a new generation.


          U.S. Expelling Russian Intelligence Officers, Closing Consulate In Seattle      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Copyright 2018 NPR. To see more, visit DAVID GREENE, HOST: The Trump administration has announced that it is expelling dozens of Russian intelligence agents from this country. It said the expulsions were in response to the poison attack on a former British spy and his daughter in the United Kingdom. A senior administration official said this move was in solidarity with NATO allies. Now, by expelling these agents, the unnamed officials said it would reduce Russia's ability to subvert Western institutions. Let's talk about this with NPR's White House correspondent Tamara Keith, who's been listening to officials describe all of this. Tam, good morning. TAMARA KEITH, BYLINE: Good morning. GREENE: Tell me more about these expulsions. And also, it sounds like the Trump administration is closing the Russian Consulate in Seattle. These are significant moves. KEITH: That's correct. So they've ordered the expulsion of a total of 60 Russian intelligence officers. About a dozen of them are tasked

          Kris Kobach refuses to recuse himself from conducting recount of his own election      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

On Wednesday morning, when it became clear that Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach could potentially control the whisker thin recount of his race for Kansas governor—a race in which Kobach currently holds a razor thin lead pending review and a possible recount—other Kansas officials were quick to say that Kobach would “do the right thing” and recuse himself. They said that Kobach would be “well advised to remove any appearance of impropriety” and that “fairness would dictate that Mr. Kobach personally recuse himself” and that both legal and ethical guidelines would lead Kobach to stepping back.

Which obviously proved that no other Kansan has have ever met Kris Kobach. Because the “voter fraud expert” who chaired Trump’s commission and loudly announced there were “three to five million” illegal votes out there based on zero evidence, is suddenly convinced that 191 votes is such a huge margin that there’s simply no point in even looking at it. As the Kansas City Star reports, Kobach is shocked, shocked, that his opponent would even consider such a thing.

“If the margin is less than 10 votes or something extraordinarily close, I would expect any person to call for a recount,” Kobach said. “A recount would take a significant amount of time to do a recount statewide. It also depends on what kind.”

Yeah. If the margin was just 0.003 percent, instead of an enormous 0.06 percent … then it might be worth a recount. It’s not like anyone ever overcame a 191 vote difference. Well, anyone other than Al Franken, who went to the Senate after a recount altered the vote total by 206 votes. Well, not anyone except Franken and Christine Gregoire, who took the governorship of Washington after a recount moved the vote by 262. 

In fact, while 538 points out that recounts rarely affect the outcome of elections, in the 27 statewide recounts that took place between 2000 and 2016, the average change in the outcome was 219 votes. Which is, hmm, more than Kobach’s current edge in Kansas. So yes. Maybe this recount is worth doing, even if it takes a “significant amount of time.”

Arson Nicki's Durational Drag, Snack Attack!, Jeff Mihalyo, and More by Stranger Things To Do Staff

Every second Thursday, rain or shine, the streets of Capitol Hill are filled with tipsy art lovers checking out galleries and special events. On our Capitol Hill Art Walk calendar, you'll find a bunch of great options for the August 9 edition. Below, we've compiled our critics' picks—the things you shouldn't miss.

Ethan Harrington: Northwest Palate
Harrington is the latest artist featured at this gallery devoted to depictions of food and food establishments, including a reverent painting of Rancho Bravo. (Our print editor Christopher Frizzelle ran across him as he was painting.) Harrington says: "It's been tough to watch some of my favorite Seattle restaurants and bars get bulldozed over the years to make way for new construction. Progress is fine but I'm sentimental so I'm on a mission to capture vintage dining spots in paint while I still can."
FoodArt Collection

Imminent Mode: Lore
The Imminent Mode fashion and art series returns with garments and accoutrements by queer trans people of color. This iteration's theme is "Lore," referring to interpersonal traditions and legends passed among communities and individuals.

The artist expresses "pop culture nostalgia" by juxtaposing texts from literature, songs, and film with drawings and collages. If you're a fan of Edgar Poe, Willy Wonka, or any number of classic tales of weirdness, take a look.
Salon Bar-Kon

Laura Van Horne
Laura Van Horne's past exhibitions have focused on colorful orbs that bring to mind microbes, eyeballs, and inkblots. This show looks like it might add an intriguing element of figurative collage.
Victrola Coffee & Art

Odette Allen
Allen shapes desert landscapes and coral shoals out of rich curves of color, focusing on areas of the Earth that are vulnerable to climate change.
Front Room

Sam Wolfe Connelly: Underbrush
This New York-based charcoal-lover sensitively depicts nocturnal animals and other sinister sights in eerie shades.

The second installment of "Sense of Place: Solutions to Save Showbox & Cultural Space" will focus on "ways to preserve cultural space within a city that is quickly transforming." The evening will combine storytelling, case studies, films, and live testimonials about the historic theater.
Northwest Film Forum

Slow Burn: A Durational Drag Performance
Delightfully freaky local drag artist Arson Nicki "pushes the art form of traditional drag lip sync to its extremes," this time by hitting "shuffle" on a nine-hour-long playlist (without breaks) and mouthing the words while moving around the room. Attendees are free to come and go as they please, and blankets, pillows, and other comfy items are encouraged.
Studio Current

Snack Attack!
These snacks, depicted by artists like Seth Goodkind (Push/Pull), Valerie Niemeyer, Zac Boetes, Genevieve St. Charles-Monet, Rich Stevens, and others, might entice you or creep you out a little. Find yourself among anthropomorphic burgers, silly cupcake dogs, giggling ice cream cones, and other denizens of the plate.

          A Special Message to the Washington State GOP, and a Special Thank You to Seattle Journalists      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Dino Rossi: You owe me an Italian dinner. by Rich Smith

The face of a real winner.
Washington GOP Chair Caleb Heimlich isn't mad about the primaries. This is just his resting Republican face. RS

Last night the Washington State GOP kicked me out of the election party they were hosting for Dino Rossi and Susan Hutchison. As my closest friends will tell you, my modesty is legendary and the very essence of my being shrinks from the spotlight. I would never dream of directing the reader’s attention away from the story at hand and toward me, a mere vessel through which language passes, a floating eye with a tape recorder, a roving cloud in trouser shorts. This is especially true for a story as important as the results of the Washington State primaries, which saw signs of a blue wave sweeping across the state’s legislative and congressional districts. I mean, really, when was the last time I ever made any story about me and my own views, my own work, my own life? When was the last time ANY writer at The Stranger did anything even remotely like that?

And yet in Crosscut, Seattle’s own mascot Knute Burger said that the GOP booting me from their party was “the biggest news of election night from Dino-land.” Plus, The Seattle Times saw fit to include a high res photo of me in their digital live coverage of the primaries.


And so—in this case and only in this case—I feel the need to step out from the shadows and tell my story, to make my voice heard, if only as a way to publicly invoice Republican Dino Rossi for quoting me in his acceptance speech only two hours after kicking me out of his fucking party. Dino Rossi: You owe me an Italian dinner.

Last week some Republican flack told The Stranger that the GOP's election party was going to start at 8:00 p.m. in an office building in Bellevue. Having covered millions of these parties before, we were not exactly fooled by this intern's ruse. Later on, we learned the party actually started at 7:00 p.m.

Anyhow, I walked into the building along with two Crosscut reporters, who also happened to arrive a few minutes early. Stranger writers are tasked to write two posts at the site of the event—one post before the election results drop and one post after the election results drop—so we like to get to venues as early as we can. The paper has a long history of writing 1,000 words about the surprisingly good/bad/patriotic food, 1,000 words about what people are wearing, and then 500 words about the election results. All of this is done, of course, in the spirit of Democracy, freedom, and conservation—we hate letting a plate of lemon bars go to waste.

In the lobby, a young communications flack named Kyle Fischer greeted us at a little welcoming podium. All smiles. But when we introduced ourselves and our respective outlets, Fischer told me the party was a “closed event” and that The Stranger hadn’t filled out an RSVP. I asked why The Stranger was being barred from entry when other outlets were not. He gave me the RSVP line again. I talked in circles for a little while. The Crosscut reporters stood up for me, saying they didn’t think it was fair that I was being denied entry and directing Fischer to answer my questions when I asked them.

When Fischer left briefly to attend to another matter, I saw a woman walk in, confess she hadn’t signed an RSVP, and then ask if she could come in anyway. Another Republican volunteer told her she could just write her name on one of the empty name tags piled next to a stack of pens.

Every other news outlet—The Seattle Times, Crosscut, King 5, KOMO, etc.—was welcomed and given mostly unnamed press tags. Tags for Natalie Brand (KING 5), Amy Radil (KUOW), and Jim Brunner (Seattle Times) were pre-printed, but anonymous “press” lanyards lay piled on the welcoming table. This was not about a fucking RSVP.

When Fischer returned we had some more strenuously polite conversation, during which he told me he was “just doing his job” by escorting me outside. He banished me to the steps outside the “private property” and said I could stay there unless someone came out to push me farther back. With the door open I repeatedly asked why The Stranger wasn’t being let in when every other outlet was, and Fischer specifically pointed to our negative coverage of Republicans and of the candidates they planned to celebrate tonight.

The SECB was relegated to the stairs outside of the GOPs event.
The SECB was relegated to the stairs outside of the GOP's event.

Reporters from local outlets overheard all of this go down and immediately took to Twitter. One of the reporters said he hadn't seen anything happen like this in his 25 years of reporting. In the middle of a busy and consequential election night they all had to cover, in the middle of arranging meetings and conducting interviews, reporters from newspapers and TV and digital mags all found the time to show solidarity for one of their colleagues. In a political moment when the President of the United States is referring to the press as "the enemy of the people," this show of support moved me deeply.

After pressure from other members of the press, Kyle walked outside with a press lanyard for me. He said I could come in so long as I played nice, which only reinforces the idea that the whole reason they were barring The Stranger from entry wasn't just because of some RSVP bullshit, but because we've been critical of their party and its policies.

Does the chair of the Washington State's Republican Party agree with the President that the press is the enemy of the people? He says he doesn't. "I think The Stranger has demonstrated that it is the enemy of the Republican party, the enemy of our candidates... I don't think they report the facts... I don't think The Stranger has been fair in their treatment of Republicans," Heimlich said. HAVE YOU READ WHAT WE'VE WRITTEN ABOUT DEMOCRATS, CALEB? ALSO, IF WE WE DON'T "REPORT THE FACTS," THEN WHY DID YOUR BOY ROSSI UNIRONICALLY QUOTE FROM MY REPORTING TO SUPPORT HIS POINT?

Anyhow, as you can see from my reporting last night, I got in and reported the facts as I always try to do. I have and will always add commentary—so long as I work at The Stranger, and so long as I have time—in the service of informing our readers without boring them to tears. I was let in at the mercy of the Republicans, it's true, but only under pressure from other journalists. So, thank you Seattle journalists. Your support meant a lot.

As for you, Washington Republicans? PLEASE CONSIDER THIS POST MY RSVP TO ALL FUTURE ELECTION NIGHT EVENTS.

          Hoops Hello: Cole Bajema      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Hoops Hello: Cole Bajema Brian August 6th, 2018 at 12:57 PM

A couple years ago Cole Bajema was a 6'1" shooting guard at a 1A school in Lynden, Washington who was barely more likely to get a Big Ten basketball scholarship than a ham sandwich*. Now he's a 6'7" shooting guard headed to Michigan, and he doesn't even qualify as a sleeper any more. That says something about Bajema, who blew up when his unsponsored AAU team finally got to a tournament with scouts at it, and something about John Beilein, who treated Bajema like a major priority as soon as he saw him at camp:

During the first weekend of the July evaluation period, Michigan assistant coach DeAndre Haynes flew from an event in Atlanta to Seattle to watch Bajema. The following weekend in Pomona, California, Beilein was one of the first people in the gym, according to Brady, for Bajema's 8 a.m. tip-off. And last weekend, Beilein was in Vegas to get another look.

Though Bajema was not the only player Michigan was scouting at these events, he was a focal point.

"It never felt like Cole was on the back-burner or not a priority," Brady said. "It was interesting to see how much effort they put in for a kid on the Canadian border who nobody had really heard of."

The pure misery of the mid-major coaches when they saw Beilein walk into the gym must have been something.

Let's play the Feud!

*[it's reporting a Rutgers offer]

GURU RATINGS

Rivals ESPN 247 247 Comp
3*, NR NR 4*, 95 rating
#61 overall, #17 SF
N/A

Most of the scouting services haven't caught up with Bajema just yet. He was also in the virtually unranked bucket at 24/7 until his commitment prompted them to release his post-blowup ranking a bit early. A couple of Rivals analysts have mentioned Bajema positively on Twitter so he might get the same kind of bump there when they get around to it. Who knows about ESPN these days but they do have a couple of guys who scout the AAU scene pretty heavily. It might take them longer since they just did an update.

The upshot is that Bajema is probably going to be a consensus top 100 guy and his composite probably won't differ much from his current 24/7 ranking. A sleeper he is not. He's also more or less done being evaluated. He can go back to Lynden and score 80 points a game and nobody will see it. Which is fine.

[Hit THE JUMP for scouting, video, and the rest.]

SCOUTING

Literally everything not from UMHoops is based off a couple of open-entry AAU tournaments that Bajema starred in a earlier this summer, so there's no development story here. It's "here's this guy. He's pretty good." Virtually anyone who saw Bajema named him to some sort of risers list. 24/7's Josh Gershon:

"...good size and length, impressive athleticism, a pure shooting stroke with range to the perimeter, ball skills, a quick first step, crafty finishing ability and plus vision. He has nothing but upside as there's plenty of room for him to gain strength and as does, his game should only continue to improve."

Bajema featured in two other posts about players standing out in Las Vegas...

 

...breakout ... good size for the position, is very physically immature with plenty of room to get stronger and has an impressive skill set. Bajema has range to three with his jumper, can really pass it, has a respectable handle and is pretty good athlete.

 

Aaand there it is:

... has a lot of value as a shooter, but he’s not just that. He showed good footwork, fine mechanics, deep range and the ability to deck it and make a play. He’s still thin at this stage, but he’s extremely fluid, has long arms and is oozing with potential.

I wish I could bet on these things.

Elsewhere, Rivals's Eric Bossi also named him a riser after Las Vegas because he "looked like one of the best shooters in the country" and "can put the ball on the floor to create shots and moves pretty well laterally." That latter will be important if he's really going to be a 6'7" two-guard.

His coach on the game that got him his first big offers:

“The game that kind of sealed the deal for most of the guys came against Howard Pulley. They’ve got solid players across the board,” Brady said. “We started the game down 20-4, but Cole scored the next 17 and went to work. He put it on the floor, finished through contract, and ones, deep threes against a team that’s good loaded with solid, Division I guys throughout the roster.

“He took over. They switched four or five defenders on him, but it didn’t work. He had 31 points, and really showed he was not only capable of playing well, but doing it against high-level competition."

And a more general take from him:

“He’s great in ball-screen situations, which he’ll have a chance to do in that system. I think he projects as a play-making combo guard,” Brady said. “He’s a fantastic ball-handler in the half-court. He can shoot it on his own, he’s got great vision, and he’s got the length to see over the defense. He can actually capitalize on (his vision), he can make all the passes that he needs to make.”

And Matt Bain goes old school ESPN BOOM BANG scouting:

He played guard his whole life and entered high school at 6-1 before spurting up to 6-7 by his junior year. His handle is crisp. His passing is pinpoint. His long-range shot is a high-arching beauty. His decision-making off a ball screen is smart. His first step is quicker than what you’d expect from a 6-7 player.

“If he’s a 6-7 wing with his weight, he’s maybe not quite a high-major player. But as a combo guard at 6-7 — with the way he shoots it, the way he handles it, the way he passes it — all of a sudden that became very interesting to (schools),” Brady said. “I think people are starting to see what he is as a basketball player — that he can be a combo guard, he can be a 6-7 creator. He’s not a wing; he’s a guy where you put the ball in his hands and he makes plays for people.”

There's also an extensive profile from the local paper if you want to know the particular mania it takes to be a D-I player in Lynden.

OFFERS

Xavier, Virginia, Oregon State, and Washington offered after Bajema's breakout AAU performance. Various mid-majors had also offered.

HIGH SCHOOL

Lynden Christian has not sent any basketball players to DI in the Rivals era. Luke Ridnour is from nearby Blaine, though. Bajema was named 1A player of the year but mostly I'm linking this because "Nooksack Valley." Heh.

STATS

23 PPG in high school.

VIDEO

Tape from Las Vegas:

This is from last year:

PREDICTION BASED ON FLIMSY EVIDENCE

A super-sized, rail-thin combo guard sounds like Caris Levert again, doesn't it? Your other recent comparable is, yes, Nik Stauskas, who became a 6'6" combo guard and pick-and-roll expert in his second and final year in Ann Arbor. I like 'em both.

UPSHOT FOR THE REST OF THE CLASS

Bajema and TX SF Jalen Wilson are likely it for now. Michigan's already oversigned by one, technically; I imagine Charles Matthews was explicit that this was his last year when he decided to return. Adding a third player to the class would (probably) require Michigan to have a pretty good idea that someone else was headed for a transfer or the pros. That's possible but Michigan is unlikely to be confident enough in that departure until the late signing period.

At that point the only players left on the board are the five star one-and-done types and deep sleepers. Michigan is in on WA PF Jaden McDaniels, sort of. Franz Wagner is also out there, being a Wagner. If it's not Wagner, a third player in the class is more likely to be a Caris Levert sort who Beilein unearths.

I'm confused re: Ham Sandwhich, future Rutgers star.

  • I thought he was already starting at QB for Rutgers. Will he count against Basketball or Football for scholarships?
  • Is mayo considered an impermissible benefit?
  • Let's say Sandwich is guarding Poole, and Poole decides to take a bite for every three he makes. When Jordan then goes 15-15 on him , could he then be convicted for  HAMslaughter?

really excited about Bajema... was going to say he seems like your typical Beilein 'sleeper' except the kid blew up... 61 is higher than Staukas or Brandon Johns...

but credit to Beilein and co, who have been on him since April...albeit a lot of that is a result of Bajema's coach reaching out and Bajema making his way to Michigan's Elite camp...

a 6'7" (possibly 6'8 by the time he enrolls) combo guard is really enticing... i don't think his handle is as good as a guy like Jalen was, but having him in the back court is something you know has Beilein rubbing his hands with glee...ditto with Haynes and Yaklich if he sticks as a 2 could be really exciting

tough question; i don't think he discussed playing the one, though i suppose it could happen depending on fouls or who the match up is against...

he did talk about hoping to get a chance at the 2 spot tho, so conceivably like MAAR i guess?

Today's post at UMHoops is worth a read for anyone who's a subscriber there - and if you aren't, you should be.  Basically he said similar things to Brian but gets into the future of the class a bit more with names.  Specifically, Michigan is likely done with all of the similar 3.5-4 star guys you've heard about all cycle.  They'll keep the 5-starts and Wagner on the line until the spring when they have a better feel for their ability to find another spot.  He also talks about Beilein following the trend of "positionless basketball".

August 6th, 2018 at 4:00 PM Augmented Reality headset Magic Leap now available for $2,295

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

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

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

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

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

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

Between our new loft in Salt Lake City, a Seattle heatwave, and two weeks in Southern Italy - I am having a HOT and fabulous Summer. GLORIOUS, and I love it. Finally, I don't feel cheated of a proper Summer. I come alive in the heat, and am very comforted by it. Happy :)

My Summer clothes are getting an enormous workout, and I thoroughly enjoy the variety of my Summer style. I LOVE my new dresses, tops, skirt and shoes. I'm thrilled I stocked up early in the season because most of it is gone in my size. AND I've duplicated the winning footwear. 

Here are my 2018 HIGH Summer wardrobe workhorses. Please post yours too. (New blue stripe NAS dress is an anticipated workhorse - am wearing it to work today). 

ETA: I wear the short black Zara dress OVER the black pants as a tunic.

Self build String Instruments.

Hi everyone. I have just been accepted as a member of this groupe of music lovers. As i am in my 77th year I am privileged to be welcome anywhere. I live in Newbridge Ireland. Having had to retire at age 68 yrs due to ill health, and having been a Lumberjack in my earlier life, I took up woodwork as a hobby. Firstly I started making Ivy Sculptures,  then I decided to build an Autoharp. I got a lot of help from a great Autoharp builder in Seattle, Pete d'Aigle, a wonderful gentleman. I decided to go in at the deep end and build a "Grand Autoharp" , which is twice the normal size , 204 cubic inch sound box as opposed to the normal 104 cubic inch. Picture attached. As I only play solo music I included All semitones, which allows me to play some Classical music. I then began resurrecting old and decrepit  Zimmerman  autoharps .Having read reams of posts about Cigar Box autoharp  I cannot find anyone who has made one.  Michael Kearney.See More

           President and Sister Nelson Plan Visit to Pacific Northwest       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Joining the Nelsons for the Northwest devotionals will be President Henry B. Eyring, Second Counselor in the First Presidency.On Sunday, September 16, the Vancouver devotional will be held at the Langley Events Centre, in the Vancouver suburb of Langley. Both meetings are scheduled for 6 p.m.For that initial international foray into Europe and Asia, the Nelsons—joined by Elder Jeffrey R. Holland of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and his wife, Sister Patricia Holland—spoke in meetings held in London, England; Nairobi, Kenya; Harare, Zimbabwe; Jerusalem, Israel; Bengaluru, India; Bangkok, Thailand; Hong Kong; and Laie.This will be the Nelsons’ fourth major trip to meet with Church members in devotional settings since his ordination and sustaining as president of the Church, and his second devotional to be conducted outside of the state of Utah. The April 2018 Global Ministry Tour concluded with a devotional stop in Laie, Hawaii, while the Nelsons spoke in a June 3 worldwide youth devotional that originated from Salt Lake City.With its 10 provinces and three territories, Canada is home to nearly 200,000 members in 496 congregations as well as eight temples and seven missions, including the Vancouver Canada Temple and the Canada Vancouver Mission.The September 15 date could draw the largest in-person crowd in his first year as Church president—the Saturday evening event is slated to be held in Seattle’s Safeco Field, the 47,943 seat ballpark with a retractable roof that is home to the Seattle Mariners of Major League Baseball.Church statistics for the state of Washington include 288,515 members in 546 congregations as well as three temples and seven missions. Located in the Seattle metro area are the Seattle Washington Temple and missions headquartered in Seattle, Everett, and Tacoma; an earlier fourth metro-area mission—the Washington Federal Way Mission—was folded into the Seattle and Tacoma missions this summer.For the latter, the Nelsons—along with Elder Neil L. Andersen of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and his wife, Sister Kathy Andersen—are scheduled to conduct three evening devotionals in as many days. Planned stops are Friday, August 17, in Winnipeg, Manitoba; Saturday, August 18, in Montreal, Quebec; and Sunday, August 19, in Hamilton, Ontario.It will be their third trip in Canada, a pair of three-stop visits earlier this summer—their June visit to the Canadian province of Alberta and a planned itinerary to central and eastern provinces later this month. (See related story.)The June 8–10 Alberta tour included daily stops and devotionals in Edmonton, Calgary, and Raymond. President and Sister Nelson were accompanied there by Elder Ronald A. Rasband of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and his wife, Sister Melanie Rasband. (See related story.)President Russell M. Nelson and his wife, Sister Wendy Nelson, will conduct a pair of weekend devotionals next month in the North Pacific Coast region—Seattle, Washington, and Vancouver, British Columbia.

          99 Warriors: No. 24, All-American and All-Big Ten Cornerback Shawn Springs      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
We're counting down the days to kickoff with “99 Warriors,” the greatest Ohio State Buckeyes by jersey number, as voted by the staff of Eleven Warriors.

No. 24 Shawn Springs

The son of former Ohio State and Dallas Cowboys running back Ron Springs, Shawn Springs was seemingly destined to be a Buckeye from birth — despite the fact that he largely grew up in Silver Springs, Maryland, where he was an all-state selection at Springbrook High School as a senior.

CB Shawn Springs

1994-96
b. March 11, 1975 (Williamsburg, VA)

  • Consensus All-American (1996)
  • Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year (1996)
  • First-Team All-Big Ten (1995-96)

Springs was named a consensus All-American, the Big Ten’s Defensive Player of the Year and all-conference selection following his junior year in 1996, despite the fact that he did not record a single interception that season. Opposing teams rarely tested him, so he finished the year with 39 tackles and a team-high 15 pass break ups instead.

Following a win over Arizona State in the Rose Bowl, Springs opted to forgo his final year of eligibility. He was selected with the third overall pick in the 1997 NFL Draft by Seattle — which remains to this day the highest a cornerback has ever been picked.

Springs played 13 seasons in the NFL with Seattle, the Washington Redskins and New England Patriots. He was a two-time Pro Bowl selection who finished his career with 714 tackles, 84 pass break ups, 33 interceptions, 8.5 sacks and two forced fumbles.

Springs — who was also named a member of the Seahawks’ 35th Anniversary Team — retired in 2009 after he sustained a career-ending knee injury. He currently works as a sports reporter for Comcast SportsNet and NBC Sports in Washington D.C. and serves as the CEO of Windpact, a company that develops safety technology for sports, military and recreation helmets.

There’s a thing at talks around Seattle. Often enough, you can feel it when the crowd gets restless if the event goes to a certain length. You can see the people looking for a chance to exit. One bolts, and others rush to follow. There was no restlessness at author Alexander Chee’s reading on Monday night. Even though the room was a tad warm, no one left. They hardly stirred. Here, Chee discusses his life and work with Seattle-based writer Matillda Bernstein Sycamore. And he reads two pieces from his new book of essays “ How to Write an Autobiographical Novel .” The book is part memoir, part writing guide. His readings are personal, revealing and poignant; a sort of aural time capsule of cherished, remarkable lives: “Why am I telling this story? I am, as I have said, a minor character, out of place in this narrative. But the major characters of all these stories from the first ten years of this epidemic have left. The men I wanted to follow into the future are dead. Finding them had

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The 2018 Hart Institute Administrators are:

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

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

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