          Ve la luz un cuento inédito de Ernest Hemingway      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Han pasado seis décadas desde que el gran escritor y periodista estadounidense Ernest Hemingway se suicidara a punta de fusil en 1961, pero sigue sorprendiendo a sus más fieles lectores. Hace unos meses conocíamos el primer relato de ficción escrito por el autor con apenas 10 años, y ahora nos sorprende con la publicación de un cuento inédito. La revista estadounidense «The Strand Magazine» ha sido la encargada de divulgar «A Room on the Garden Side», una breve historia ambientada en la Segunda Guerra Mundial que Hemingway escribió durante una de sus estancias en París. Su origen se encuentra en el verano de 1957, cuando el autor escribió un total de cinco historias breves sobre las experiencias vividas años atrás, durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial. En agosto de ese mismo año se las entregó a su editor, Charles Scribner, al que le explicó que «las historias podrían ser un poco chocantes porque lidian con tropas irregulares, combates y personas que matan a personas». «De todos modos, siempre puedes publicarlos después de mi muerte», rezaba el final de la carta a Scribner. Estos cuentos se encuentran en la Biblioteca Museo John F. Kennedy de Boston y son conocidos dentro del entorno académico. Allí están los manuscritos de «A Room on the Garden Side», «Black Ass at the Crossroads», «Indian Country and the White Army», «The Monument» y «The Bubble Reputation», los títulos de los cinco cuentos que dejó en herencia el autor a su editor. Solo llegó a publicarse uno, «Black Ass at the Crossroads». Hasta ahora. Amor por París «Es una historia que refleja el amor de Hemingway por París, cómo odiaba la muerte y el sufrimiento y cómo amaba la vida», explica a ABC Andrew F. Gully, responsable de «The Strand Magazine». En 2.100 palabras, y narrada en primera persona, la historia está ambientada en el verano de 1944, cuando las tropas aliadas liberaron París de la ocupación nazi. En el epílogo de la obra, Kirk Curnutt, miembro de la junta directiva de la Hemingway Society, señala que la pieza «contiene todos los elementos que los lectores adoran en Hemingway». El cuento es una buena muestra de la fascinación de Hemingway por la guerra, que tanto plasmó en su literatura. El autor sirvió como voluntario en la Primera Guerra Mundial, conduciendo ambulancias en Italia, hasta que la metralla de una explosión le hirió de gravedad y volvió a Estados Unidos. Su experiencia en el combate le sirvió de inspiración para escribir la novela que le condujo a primera línea literaria: «Adiós a las armas» (1929). Lo mismo ocurrió con la Guerra Civil española y «Por quién doblan las campanas» (1940). Pero Hemingway no se cansó del campo de batalla entonces: fue soldado y reportero durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial y estuvo presente en Francia, en agosto de 1944, durante la liberación de la ocupación nazi y el Desembarco de Normandía. Cicatrices de batalla Desde ese momento su escritura se aderezó con las cicatrices de batalla, el amor, la guerra y la camaradería de los hombres que charlan sobre libros y vino, que están presentes en este nuevo cuento. Poco después de escribir «A Room on the Garden Side», Hemingway le confesó a su amigo Harvey Breit a través de una carta que odiaba «la naturaleza perturbadora de la fama», añadiendo que «probablemente sería mejor no publicar nada más; es más simple dejar las cosas una vez has muerto». Sin embargo, «A Room on the Garden Side» es la entrega veraniega de «The Strand Magazine», una publicación trimestral literaria que se dedica a divulgar trabajos inéditos de maestros literarios y nuevas obras de ficción de autores con gran relevancia en la actualidad. En cuanto al resto de inéditos, se desconoce cuándo saldrán a la luz, pues «la Hemingway Society quiere esperar a publicar los documentos en el momento correcto con el editor adecuado», según explica Andrew Gully.

          Convergint acquires ACT      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Company CEO says deal bolsters presence and expertise in the East
08/08/2018
Paul Ragusa

SCHAUMBURG, Ill.—Convergint Technologies recently announced the acquisition of New Jersey-based Access Control Technologies (ACT), adding approximately 1,000 customers and bringing greater expertise and depth to the Eastern region of the U.S.

“They have a tremendous reputation in the New York market and are one of the top Lenel integrators in that part of the country,” Ken Lochiatto, CEO of Convergint Technologies, told Security Systems News. “ACT’s leadership and service-oriented focus are exactly what we look for when evaluating whether an organization is a cultural fit for Convergint Nation.”

Lochiatto said Convergint has increased its presence in the East, particularly in the Boston and New York markets, where “combined between the two we are probably doing around $150 million in revenue,” he said. “We have so much need for great talent from companies like ACT, which have brought great additional depth to us now as well as some tremendous accounts. We are very excited about adding them as part of our team and supporting them across the U.S. and the world.”

Headquartered in Clifton, ACT provides integrated security solutions involving access control, video surveillance, identity management and alarm monitoring to customers in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware and eastern Pennsylvania. All 38 ACT colleagues, including leaders Joe Liguori and Remo Cinquino, will be joining Convergint.

“Our two organizations possess a strong alignment of strategic philosophies with respect to customer satisfaction,” Joe Liguori, senior managing partner of ACT, said in the announcement. “Making the decision to join Convergint was an easy one. We look forward to the prospect of being a part of Convergint Technologies’ growth and adding to their capabilities.”

Lochiatto pointed out that Convergint also closed on another acquisition that it will announce next week, and has many more planned for the remainder of the year, both in the U.S. and overseas. “We are benefitting greatly from the strategy of buying outstanding companies that are known first as service-focused organizations,” he added.

Convergint has strategically grown its service footprint across the United States, Canada, Europe and Asia Pacific through strong organic growth and the completion of 18 acquisitions since early 2016.

In terms of overall growth, Lochiatto said Convergint will finish the year with strong organic growth in the mid-teens percentage-wise. “And if you take that along with the acquisition activity, we should be north of a billion dollars by year’s end, which is very exciting when you consider that we finished last year at $840 million.” He said that the company will also surpass the 4,000 employee mark by year’s end.

          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.

          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."

Lesson 01
 
Historical Influences and the Preamble
 
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
 
            History
 
The formal version of the Magna Carta in England was issued on June 19, 1215. There was a minor change in the new document, when the final provision was drafted, replacing the term "any baron" with "any freeman" in stipulating to whom the provisions applied. The term would eventually include all Englishmen. The final version's applicability to all members of the English Society served as a starting point for the Constitution's Preamble, where "any freeman" was changed once again, but this time to the first three words of the American document: "We the People."
 
The English Colonists developed legal codes largely incorporating liberties guaranteed by the Magna Carta and the 1689 English Bill of Rights. Though the education levels of the colonists varied, and few could afford legal training in England, they were familiar with English common law. During one parliamentary debate in the late 18th century, Edmund Burke observed, "In no country, perhaps in the world, is law so general a study."
 
James Madison and Thomas Jefferson drew inspiration from the doctrines of the British constitution, or in what were called English liberties.
 
Unlike the Spanish Colonies, which were conquered land ruled over by the Spanish Conquistadors, and authoritarian governors, the English Colonies were granted by charter. Rather than bear the burden of empire, which, as Spain discovered, could be expensive, and taxing on a nation's armed forces, the English Crown offered the lands along the Atlantic Coast to investors, entrepreneurs, and families seeking a new start. In the northern colonies, the colonists sought religious freedom. The Pilgrims did not want to keep their membership in the Church of England. As separatists, the Pilgrims organized their worship independently, colonizing north of the Puritans at Plymouth Rock.
 
The English Colonies enjoyed autonomy that the Spanish Colonies did not. To survive in the Spanish Colonies, the colonist exhibited a warrior spirit, conquering the lands and the people who stood in the way, forcing the captured natives into slave labor and marriage for the purpose of accomplishing the tasks necessary for survival, while also being heavily dependent upon supplies from the homeland. The English Colonies were expected to survive by living off the land. They were families, indentured servants, and seekers of fortune. They were forced to be self-reliant, personally responsible, and hard working, in order to survive. The English Colonists did not attempt to conquer the natives as the Spanish did, but worked with them, making treaties with the Native Americans, because they needed the native population's help in order to survive. In the English Colonies, freedom was a necessary component of survival, and after failing under communitarianism, the colonists found that a free market system, where colonists kept more of what they worked for, and had the option to trade goods in an open market, worked best for the burgeoning society.
 
In English America, freemen adopted the best of the English system, while adapting it as necessary to the new circumstances in the colonies. The English Colonies was a place where a person could rise by merit, not by birth. The thirteen colonies was a place where men could voice their opinions and actively share in self-government. When the British Crown challenged these beliefs, turning to the colonies as a source of revenue to help alleviate the Crown's substantial debts, and the growing expense of keeping troops on American soil, the colonists questioned the government in Britain, challenging the actions of Parliament, arguing that without consent or direct representation in Parliament, the acts by the motherland were "taxation without representation," and an act of tyranny against the free Englishmen of the colonies.
 
The influence of the Magna Carta, and the demand for liberty, existed along the Atlantic Coast long before the War of Independence. As John Adams later wrote to Thomas Jefferson, "The Revolution was in the minds of the people, and this was effected, from 1760 to 1775, in the course of 15 years before a drop of blood was shed at Lexington."
 
The Americans knew their rights, and they were willing to fight for them. The seal adopted by Massachusetts on the eve of the Revolution summed up the mood. The image was of a militiaman with sword in one hand, and the Magna Carta in the other.
 
When it was time to form a new government, embodied in a written social contract we now know as the Constitution of the United States, the founders determined that like England under the Magna Carta, the government must be limited by subjecting it to the rule of law. The Constitution, once ratified by the States, became the law of the land. The document serves as a written standard where the authority emanates from the people, not from any governmental body. Pursuant to the Constitution, no man, not even the country's leader, was considered to be above the law. The rule of law based on the philosophy of the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God was the basis of constitutional thought in the United States in 1787.
 
"A government of laws, and not of men." - John Adams
 
Elder statesman Benjamin Franklin strolled across a grassy lawn from Independence Hall in Philadelphia, after the conclusion of the Federal Convention of 1787, when a woman in a bonnet approached him, asking, "Sir, what have you given us?"
 
"A republic," Dr. Franklin replied. "If you can keep it."
 
The new government in the fledgling United States was considered to be one that was doomed to fail. Europeans scoffed at the American experiment in self-government. The Old World argued that without the hand of a divinely appointed, wise, ruling monarch in place to guide society, a culture could not succeed. The Grand Experiment was a waste of time, and it would not be long before the rebellious, starving, treasonous, and petulant, English colonists came crawling back to the British Crown, begging to be readmitted to the empire.
 
In a society with no government, people have no freedom. In a society with too much government, people have no freedom.
 
Without government there is no law, and without law there are no enforcers of the law. This kind of system is called an anarchy, which is a transitional form of government. In an anarchy, there is no freedom because the citizens must constantly protect their property, and their lives.
 
With government in place, there are laws in place. When there are laws in place, it is necessary to hire enforcers of the law, such as a police force. A society with a government in place can create an environment of freedom that allows citizens the ability to leave their property and engage in activities away from their homes.
 
Tyranny through a unitary state dominates the pages of history. Tyrannical governments obtain their power through violence, and bloodshed in a complete disregard for authorities granted, justice, or the rule of law. To maintain their power, tyrants use violence and bloodshed. When tyrannies are finally toppled, the path to dislodging tyrannies normally includes violence and bloodshed.
 
Violence and death are the common results of powerful central governments with dominant rulers.
 
Dictators do not normally reveal their plans of tyranny during their rise to power, for the people would never have allowed them to become their leaders if they knew this kind of violence was in their future. Tyrannical leaders render legislative bodies irrelevant, demoting them to nothing more than a consultative assembly.
 
In history, tyranny is the rule, and liberty is the exception. Governments that protect the freedoms of the people, and respect the rights of their citizens, are a rare occurrence. Freedom requires the citizens to be informed and involved. With freedom comes responsibility.
 
An educated society begins by teaching the younger generations the principles of liberty, and to encourage them to be involved in civic activities, and local government. The founders understood we need government, but a limited government was required to secure the rights and property of the citizens. However, because of human nature, the founders realized that without making sure the people remained educated about the system they had established, a downward spiral into despotism and tyranny was inevitable.
 
The Declaration of Independence was approved by the Continental Congress on July 4, 1776, and outlined the reasons why the colonies were seeking independence from Great Britain. The founding document declares that it is the right of the people to alter or abolish their government should it become destructive. It also states these truths are self-evident, and that "all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."
 
The document penned by Thomas Jefferson includes a list of grievances, most of which are also iterated in the U.S. Constitution. The Declaration calls for fair representation, encourages immigration, calls for a judiciary that is separated from the will of the central leadership, calls for a stop to the presence of a standing army, demands that Great Britain stop the quartering of troops in the houses of the citizens, demands fair trials, and calls for due process, free trade, fair taxation, a protection of rights, and for the Crown to hear the redress of grievances by the colonists.
 
A key aspect of the Declaration of Independence reveals itself in the final sentence of the document. The call for independence ends with the incredible statement, "And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor."
 
Political Spectrum
 
In the battle of Left versus Right, it is important to understand what it all means in the first place. Like-minded individuals naturally tend to gather together when a theater of opinion erupts. Congregating in such a manner, creating political parties, is a part of our human nature. Houses, or chambers, of government are no different. Members of the political assembly who support similar agendas sit together, much in the way social allies tend to hang out together at a dinner party. The classification of "left" and "right" grew out of the tendency of people to group together on one side, or the other.
 
The early definition of "left" and "right" was different than in today's American Society. Among the most commonly known split between the left and the right in a political assembly occurred in France before the French Revolution. Members of the National Assembly sat on the right or the left of the hall depending on their level of political support in regards to the ruling monarchy. Those in support of the monarchy, and the religious elements that came with the reigning government, would sit on the right. The people on the right were defined as being those holding traditional interests in line with the Church and the monarchy, believing the king ruled by divine right, and that Catholicism must continue to be the state religion, and therefore continue to be a strong influence on governance. The people who sat on the right side of the assembly believed that the Church had a vested interest in the political system, and sought to preserve that system.
 
Those who sat on the left side of the hall in France during the period preceding the French Revolution did so in support of "enlightenment," which was considered to be in the interests of rationalism and secularism. The left used secular elements to challenge the Church's long-held influence over government, fostering nationalism among its allies, and promoting hope in constructing and shaping the political community. The left desired to change government by overthrowing the Church and the aristocracy by promoting secularism and nationalism. The planners of this glorious new "Enlightened" government became the leaders of France after the French Revolution, orchestrating a Reign of Terror, which was a period of chaos during which thousands were guillotined for being politically incorrect.
 
The radicals within this new government saw the Catholic Church as the enemy while promoting its Cult of Reason. Like with the monarchy before them, however, it became clear that to control the political and social upheaval, the government in place must also become tyrannical in their own right. Under the rule of statism, France remained a nation unable to cultivate liberty, and one that remained under the iron fist of a dictatorial government. For many, this was no surprise. Some of the planners of the change of the form of government in France knew that in order to keep order they would need to "treat the people as cattle."
 
The French National Assembly established a constitutional monarchy and adopted a new constitution in 1791 that created a Legislative Assembly. The political assembly, as with any other political body, rapidly divided into factions opposing each other. The three factions that formed in the new French Legislative Assembly were the radicals (liberals), moderates (centrists) and conservatives. The radicals (liberals) sat in the left section of the assembly hall, the conservatives sat on the right, and the moderates sat in the center section. Their political identities have some similarities to political movements today in the United States, and had little in common with the pre-revolution arrangement that emphasized itself more on monarchy and religion.
 
America is much younger than the European nations, and never had a landlord class of titled nobles. In fact, the Constitution specifically prohibits such a system. The Founding Fathers desired to break away from European traditions as much as possible, even abandoning much of British Common Law when defining citizenship. To be a British Subject the rules were weak, and divided loyalties ran rampant throughout the British Empire. The United States as a nation could not tolerate divided loyalties, and placed a stronger standard of natural born citizenship upon the President in order to eliminate the opportunity for the executor of the American Form of Government to harbor divided loyalties between the United States of America, and any other nation. That way, the new American government could break completely free of any European influence, and forge itself into a Republic independent from British influence, and in fact, the authoritarian nature of Europe as a whole.
 
The political landscape of the United States of America, since there never was a class of nobles, was simple in the young nation. Either you were a Federalist, an anti-Federalist, or somewhere in between. In other words, you believed in a stronger centralized federal government, you believed that the federal role in government should be limited greatly, or you found yourself somewhere between the two political beliefs.
 
Unlike the Europeans, royalty and religion played no role in determining the nature of American political philosophies. Nearly all of the early American Politicians were deeply religious men, but the political spectrum did not separate factions along religious lines. God played a major role in the principle foundation of the nation, but the founding fathers also determined that no religion could ever take an official role in government. In other words, the establishment of any religion as the official religion of the United States was forbidden. However, the freedom to practice one's religion was not to be infringed upon. Almost all of the signers of the Declaration of Independence were either clergy, or highly involved in their church. 27 of the 56 signers had Christian seminary degrees. The founding fathers fervently prayed in Congress.
 
Benjamin Franklin is widely regarded to be among the least religious of the founding fathers. However, his speech given to Congress on June 28, 1787 asking that Congress have a prayer every morning before conducting business was overtly religious in nature. Despite modern assumptions, there was not a political battle between The Church and the secularists during the founding of the United States of America.
 
From the newer models of government in France, and America, the definition of the Political Spectrum changed, becoming more about the level of control of government over a society, rather than the presence of a monarchy, or established church. Zero percent of government intrusion on the lives of the people inhabits the far right of the current political spectrum, which is a condition known as anarchy. 100% governmental control inhabits the far left extremity of the Political Spectrum, or a totalitarian government. The American form of government, or a Constitutional Republic that operates under the rule of law, is at the center of the political spectrum.
 
Most of the current forms of government present in today's international political arena reside on the left side of the Political Spectrum, drawing their foundations from socialist principles. Socialism is authoritarian. Socialism claims to seek to overthrow the Church and aristocracy by promoting atheism and nationalism, much like the enlightened planners of the French Revolution, only replacing the government they thought to be a tyranny with a tyranny of their own. In Russia, the rise of socialism held the basic tenet of replacing the individual's commitment to God with a commitment to love and serve a collective society ruled by an elite few.
 
When one examines the communist society, which resides on the left side of the Political Spectrum, one finds that if society was ruled over by an equally powerful religious theocracy, the basic governmental elements of the ruling doctrine are the same, and just as tyrannical. Therefore, a controlling government based on religion is no different than an atheistic system of communism. Either way, the form of governance is based on a centralized control over the people, and limits on personal individualism, and freedoms.
 
Economically, leftism encourages increased government involvement with the instruments that regulate the economy. Under a leftist economic system, such as in the communist model, the government seizes control of the industries, eliminating private ownership. In the fascist model, however, the authoritarian political entity engages in corporatism, allowing the private enterprises to remain private, yet bundled together in a uniting strength under authoritarian government rule. Because fascism (from Italian fascismo, Benito Mussolini's authoritarian political movement in Italy 1922 to 1943) was created to be an adverse reaction to the apparent economic failure of Marxism, and labeled itself as the opposite of communism, fascism is often referred to as being right-wing, and ultra-conservative. If you break down the political structure of fascism, however, it becomes apparent that defining fascism as being on the right side of the political spectrum is problematic. Like socialism, fascism exalts the group above the individual (in fascist states often the nation or race is exalted above the identity of the individual). Like other leftist systems, fascism also calls for a separation of church and state, a national civilian army, and progressive taxation. One element of fascism some may argue as being right-wing is the fact that fascism seeks to eliminate labor unions for co-ops. But the co-operatives, in a fascist state, are controlled by the government, and therefore become more leftist than the system before. Though fascism, during the early twentieth century, claimed to be anti-communist, the National Socialism aspect of the ideology places fascism on the left side of the Political Spectrum.
 
Ultimately, the true definition of the Political Spectrum is dependent upon how government interacts with society. Increased government intrusion moves needle on the spectrum to the left. Increasing limitations on government intrusion moves the needle to the right. In both cases, the extreme of totalitarianism, or anarchy, are equally dangerous. Ultimately, most forms of government, despite the promise of fairness, are often only precursors to another form of government. The Founding Fathers realized this, recognizing that the only form of government that both limits the powers of the federal government, while still giving it adequate authority to protect and preserve State Sovereignty, is a Constitutional Republic. They knew that if you pursue leftism too far, an authoritarian government would rise from the movement. If government was limited too much, and the government did not have enough power to enforce law, an authoritarian government would also rise to fill the void.
 
            The Preamble
 
We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.
 
The Preamble is the introduction of the U.S. Constitution. The opening paragraph of the founding document holds no legal authority. The Preamble serves to establish who is granting the authority to create a new federal government, and the reasons for the decision. We The People of the United States are the grantors. In other words, the States, which were the embodiment of the people, were creating the federal government, and granting authorities to it so that it may function in a manner necessary to protect, promote, and preserve the union of States. The concept became known as federalism.
 
The Preamble is designed much like a permission form the doctor's office may present to you to sign, giving the doctor the authority to perform necessary procedures on your body in order to make you well. The form begins with your name (I, patient's name), and then limits the doctor to only the procedures necessary to make you well. The doctor, if he or she believes additional procedures may be necessary, must ask for your permission before performing the additional procedures that are not granted by your original agreement with them.
 
Like the form in the doctor's office, the Preamble begins with who is granting the authorities. "We the People of the United States" are the grantors of the authorities given to the new federal government. The people, through their States, allow the federal government to exist, and to perform the procedures expressly granted in the United States Constitution.
 
If a homeowner hires a contractor to add a room to their house, a contract is created between the homeowner, and the company hired to do the work. The contract establishes the granted authorities to the construction company regarding the room addition, listing the materials and labor necessary and proper to carry out that task. If, later, after the work begins, the homeowner observes the workers tending to the garden, and mowing the lawn, the homeowner would be angry because lawn maintenance was not among the authorities granted to the contractor hired to provide the service of adding a room to the house. In the same way, through the Constitution, the federal government has been granted a list of authorities that are necessary and proper for it to carry out the tasks vested in it. The tasks directly relate to protecting and preserving the union, while also respecting and promoting State Sovereignty. The federal government's authorities encompass only the external issues necessary to protect the union, and the sovereignty of the States. Internal issues are not granted to the federal government. Local issues are reserved to the local governments, such as the States, counties, and cities.
 
The first three words of the Preamble, "We the People," often lead people to believe that we are a democracy. Taken in context, the first part of the Preamble is not only "We the People," but "We the People of the United States." In the context of original intent, "the people of these States that are united have come together to establish this contract for the following reasons."
 
The words "United States" appear often in the U.S. Constitution. When those words appear in the text of the Constitution, they mean one of two things. Either, "United States" is a reference to the new federal government, or United States means "these states that are united." In the case of the Preamble, both definitions are used. As we notice the first time united States appears in the Declaration of Independence, "united" is not capitalized. Failing to capitalize "united" in the Declaration of Independence was a reflection of the common opinion of the people of that era. America was not a nationalistic country dominated by a powerful government, but a union of States that are sovereign, autonomous, and individual - like the people. We the People are the individual parts of their States, and the States are individual parts of the union.
Early Americans saw the United States in the plural, rather than as a singular nationalistic entity. The people were citizens of their States first, but realized that the States must be united to survive. The individual States would only be safe if they all worked together as a united country. To ensure the union was protected they proposed forming a central government through a social contract called the United States Constitution. This contract to grant limited authorities to a federal government was designed to ensure that the federal government remained limited so as to not infringe on the individual rights of the sovereign States, and the people who resided in those States.
 
A limited government is the essence of liberty.
 
The reasons listed in the Preamble for forming a new government were "In Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity." In line with classical writing standards, these reasons were listed in order of importance.
 
The most important reason for the formation of the federal government, the main purpose for the creation of the U.S. Constitution, was "in Order to form a more perfect Union." A union already existed under the Articles of Confederation. A confederation, however, is a weak form of government where nearly all of the power remains with the individual members. A confederation is an association of sovereign member states that, by treaty, or other agreement, have delegated some of their powers to a common institution in order to coordinate policies, without constituting a new state on top of the member states. The government under the Articles of Confederation was formed hastily during the Revolutionary War, and as revealed by Shays' Rebellion, proved to be too weak to protect the union not only from threats beyond our shores, but insurrection from within the country. The founders realized that they needed to form a more perfect union, one with more authorities, while still remaining fairly limited in its power and scope. The realization that the Articles of Confederation were too weak, and either needed to be fixed, or replaced, was first discussed in delegation during the Annapolis Convention in 1786. During that meeting, the attending State delegates decided to meet again in May of 1787 in a convention of all States, which became the Federal Convention of 1787.
 
Under the Articles of Confederation, the central government was as weak as a lamb. What America needed was a central government with the strength of a lion. The problem with lions, however, is that they can kill you if not restrained. So, the Founding Fathers had to figure out a way to create a lion strong enough to deal with the external issues, and conflict between the States, while restraining that lion in such a way that the people living under it were safe from its potential tyranny. The lion is the federal government, and the chains and restraints of a set standard that protects We the People from that lion is the United States Constitution.
 
In the Constitution, the authorities granted to the federal government are limited to protecting, preserving, or promoting the union. The federal government, through the express powers granted in the Constitution, was granted authorities including, but not limited to, maintaining an army and navy in order to protect the union, to collect taxes in order to pay for that military and the other necessary functions created for the purpose of preserving the union, to regulate commerce by acting as a mediator between the States so that the flow of commerce flows regularly and in good order so as to encourage a growing economy for the union, establish a uniform rule of naturalization for the purpose of ensuring the union grows through legal immigration, and to establish post offices so that the many parts of the union may remain in contact with each other. The federal government was created for the sake of the issues related to the union. The federal government was not created to manage local issues that have nothing to do with the union, and everything to do with the unique cultures and societal needs of the local communities.
 
The second reason listed in The Preamble for the creation of the federal government through the ratification of the U.S. Constitution were to "establish Justice." Note that the word "establish" is normally used in situations where whatever is being established never previously existed. The word "establish" being used in the Preamble, then, leads us to believe that there was no justice prior to the writing of the founding document. However, justice systems already existed in each of the States, through State court systems. Therefore, the U.S. Constitution was not written to establish justice in the States, but to establish justice at the federal level where a judicial system had not previously existed. The language used in the Constitution, in this case, provides us with a clue that the original intent of the Founding Fathers was for the Constitution to apply only to the federal government, unless it specifically states otherwise.
 
Though "establish Justice" is listed second in the list of reasons for creating the federal government, we must not confuse "importance" with "power." To establish justice was a very important reason for creating a federal government, but the federal court system, for fear of it becoming a powerful judicial oligarchy, was also greatly limited. During the debates of the Constitutional Convention in 1787, there was actually a consideration to not establish a federal court system. The delegates realized that tyranny easily flows through an activist judiciary. The rule of law could be easily compromised by a judicial branch not willing to abide by the original intent of the U.S. Constitution, or poisoned by political ideology. For this reason, the powers of the judicial branch are greatly limited by the Constitution. We will go into more detail regarding those limitations when we get to Article III, and the 11th Amendment.
 
The first two reasons for the writing of the U.S. Constitution, according to the Preamble, were to form a more perfect union through the formation of a federal government, and to establish justice by creating a federal judicial system. Those primary goals reveal to us that the Constitution was not written to grant powers to the States, but for the purpose of creating, yet limiting, a newly formed federal government, which was designed to serve the States by protecting them, and preserving the union they enjoyed. Before the States delegated some of their own powers to the federal government through the Constitution, all of those powers belonged to the States - a political condition known as Original Authority. The States, however, only granted "some" of their powers to the federal government, retaining most of the powers for themselves.
 
The U.S. Constitution, and all language within the document, is directed to the federal government, not to the States, unless specifically indicated otherwise. This is because the States essentially "hired" the federal government to protect and preserve the union. The contract that authorizes the federal government to exist and receive the authorities from the States is the U.S. Constitution. Therefore, it would not be reasonable to assume that the provisions of the Constitution are to be applied to the States as much as it would not be logical to believe that an agreement between you and your doctor tells you what you can and can't do regarding the procedures that are about to be performed on you. The agreement with the doctor is specifically designed to tell the doctor what procedures are allowed, just as the Constitution is specifically designed to tell the federal government what authorities it is allowed to have in order to protect, preserve, and promote the union. In that contract with the doctor there may be instructions that tell you what not to do so as to not undermine healing, such as submersing oneself in water before a wound is fully healed. The same is true in the Constitution. There is a section, Article I, Section 10, that tells the States what they are prohibited from doing. These prohibitions were necessary to ensure the States did not interfere with federal functions.
 
Since it is We The People of the United States who granted the federal government its powers, that means it is the people's responsibility, through the States, responsibility to ensure the federal government acts in a constitutional manner. The Constitution is nothing more than ink and paper if we don't fight for it.
 
The union, at the time of the writing of the Constitution, was fragile. The States, as colonies, or as individual states shortly after the American Revolution, did not always coexist in a mutually beneficial manner. The States enjoyed their own unique cultures, religions, and laws. The States clashed over territory, commerce, and a variety of other issues that often included disputed legal issues and definitions. The States were much like siblings, fighting over everything under the sun; but when it came down to brass tacks, they were united when it came to defending each other.
 
The bickering between the States created an atmosphere that placed the cohesion of the union at risk. Therefore, when it came to creating a more perfect union, it was understood by the framers that the federal government would have to "insure domestic Tranquility" and to "promote the general Welfare."
 
The federal government was expected to ensure there was tranquility between the States by acting as a mediator in disputes. Part of that task by the federal government was to also promote the general welfare of the republic. In other words, the federal government was tasked with making sure the squabbles were properly resolved, while also protecting the union, so that the welfare of the union would not be in jeopardy.
 
The term general Welfare, as it is presented in the Preamble, is capitalized in a curious manner. Welfare is capitalized, but the word "general" is not. Capitalization in the Constitution was often used for the purpose of emphasis. With that tendency as our guide, we recognize that "Welfare" was the key component when these two words were presented in the Preamble. The Founding Fathers were seeking "Welfare" with a capital "W." The founders tasked the federal government with the duty of ensuring there was Welfare in the nation in a general manner. Or, you could say that they wanted the atmosphere in general to be one of "Welfare," or "all's well," hence, the reason general is not capitalized, and Welfare is, in the Preamble.
 
Tucked between "insure domestic Tranquility" and "promote the general Welfare" is the phrase: "provide for the common defence." The placement of this phrase in The Preamble reveals that providing for the common defense was almost as important as ensuring peaceful cooperation between the States, and slightly more important than promoting the general Welfare of the republic (and a necessary part of ensuring the general Welfare).
 
The need to provide for the common defense, one may note, was not listed first in The Preamble as one of the reasons for the creation of the federal government. The Founding Fathers, though they recognized the importance of the federal government to field a military force, as realized from the failure of the government to put down insurrection during Shays' Rebellion under the Articles of Confederation, did not list the need to provide for the common defense at the beginning of the Preamble because a country that places too much importance on a military is doomed to become a police state. Defending this nation was not placed at the bottom of the list of reasons for the writing of the Constitution, either, because a nation that refuses to defend itself ultimately becomes a conquered entity that is subject to the authority of a foreign government. Despite the fear of a powerful military that could be used against the people and the States, providing for the common defense was still indeed one of the primary reasons for creating the federal government in the first place. That is why "provide for the common defence" is listed in the Preamble within the central depths of the body of the paragraph.
 
The final reason for the writing of the Constitution was to "secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity." The presence of the word "Blessings" reminds us that the Founding Father's grateful spirit recognized that the result of the American Revolution, and the inspiration for the new federal government, could have only come from the favors of Divine Providence. Liberty, remember, is one of the unalienable rights listed in the Declaration of Independence that has been given to us by The Creator. In fact, that is one of the foundational beliefs of the original intent behind the creation of the federal government. Our rights are granted to us by God, not by government, for if our rights are granted to us by government, government would then be able to take those rights away. This idea of God-granted rights is based on a concept called Natural Law penned by John Locke during the 1600s. In the Declaration of Independence, it is referred to as, "Laws of Nature and of Nature's God." Natural Law is the unchanging moral principles regarded as a basis for all human conduct, which is observable law we participate in as related to our natural existence.
 
The U.S. Constitution was not solely written only to protect our natural rights, liberty, and property. Protecting our rights, liberty, and property are among the chief reasons the Constitution was written in the manner that it was, and protecting those natural rights are predictable byproducts when the Constitution is being followed by the government, but those are not the only reasons for the perceived need to compose the founding document, or for the creation of the federal government.
 
As indicated in the Preamble, the primary reason for the Constitution was "in Order to form a more perfect Union." However, the very formation of that union, and devising a governmental system to protect, preserve and promote that union, was not exclusively for the sake of the union, either. The ultimately desire was to protect the sovereignty of each component of that union - The States. The framers understood that by creating a federal government, the potential for the governmental system to become a tyranny was unleashed. Therefore, in order to protect the rights, liberty and property of the people (more specifically to "secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity"), the federal government needed to be limited in its authorities by the rule of law. The law of the land in which the governmental system is limited to, in the case of the United States, is the U.S. Constitution, for the sake of protecting the individuality of the States, and We the People.

Magna Carta: The "Great Charter" of English Liberties, forced from King John by the English barons at Runnymede, June 15, 1215. A fundamental constitution, or law guaranteeing rights.
 
Unalienable Rights: Incapable of being alienated, that is, sold and transferred. You can not surrender, sell or transfer unalienable rights, they are a gift from the Creator to the individual and can not under any circumstances be surrendered or taken. All individual's have unalienable rights.
 
 
 
Questions for Discussion:
 
1. How might the United States be different if the Magna Carta, or the Glorious Revolution, had never taken place?
 
2. Many of us were taught to memorize the Preamble in school, others remember it because of the School House Rock cartoon on Saturday mornings, but growing up how many times were we taught what it means?
 
3. Federalism, or the belief in a central government limited by the authorities granted to it in the Constitution, began as a wonderful idea. The members of the "Federalist Party," however, were not satisfied, and desired the federal government to have more authorities than it was granted. Why do you think this is true?
 
4. Why did the Founding Fathers only desire the federal government to be granted powers that regarded the union, and not authorities in regards to other issues?
 
4. The judicial branch was supposed to be the weakest of the three branches. Why do you think the Founding Fathers wanted to limit the judiciary to such an extent?
 
5. One of the founding principles is that our unalienable rights are given to us by the Creator. Is it a coincidence that historically most authoritarian governments that sought to take away the rights of the individual did it either by taking control of the church, or by rejecting religion/the existence of God?
 
6. At what point does a government take "provide for the common defense" too far?

          US stock indexes dip as oil prices sink energy companies      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

NEW YORK — A late gain for U.S. stocks slipped away Wednesday as a four-day winning streak ended. Energy companies sank along with the price of oil.

The price of crude oil fell more than 3 percent Wednesday. Big dividend payers and industrial companies slipped. Gains for Microsoft, Facebook and Alphabet helped technology companies finish higher. Banks and health care companies also rose.

The U.S. and China both announced new tariffs: later this month each country will put a 25 percent tax on $16 billion in goods imported from the other. Both countries placed tariffs on $34 billion in imports earlier this month, and they have threatened much larger tariffs to come.

But investors have been focusing on rising company earnings instead. Karyn Cavanaugh, senior markets strategist at Voya Investment Management, said U.S. companies are expecting bigger profits in spite of the tariffs.

"That speaks to me a lot louder than a lot of negative headlines," she said. "Companies have gotten very good at minimizing their costs and being very efficient with what they have."

The S&P 500 index dipped 0.75 points to 2,857.70. The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 45.16 points, or 0.2 percent, to 25,583.75. The Nasdaq composite rose 4.66 points, or 0.1 percent, to 7,888.33. The Russell 2000 index of smaller stocks lost 1.42 points, or 0.1 percent, to 1,686.88.

The Trump administration plans to tax Chinese industrial products such as steam turbines and iron girders starting Aug. 23. China's government said it will put tariffs on U.S. goods including cars, crude oil and scrap metal starting on the same date.

Oil futures fell sharply. U.S. crude oil lost 3.2 percent to $66.94 a barrel in New York. Brent crude, the standard for international oil prices, fell 3.2 percent to $72.28 a barrel in London.

Exxon Mobil lost 0.7 percent to $80.73 and Chevron dipped 1 percent to $123.88.

Snap, which runs the Snapchat video app, fell 6.8 percent to $12.23 after it said daily users fell during the second quarter. It's the latest technology company to have its stock drop after announcing discouraging user totals, joining Facebook, Twitter and Netflix.

Match Group, the parent of online dating companies including Match.com and OKCupid, bucked that trend. Its stock jumped 17.3 percent to $45.60 after Match reported big gains in subscribers, especially for Tinder. Its adjusted profit and revenue beat Wall Street projections.

Drugstore and pharmacy benefits manager CVS raised its annual profit forecast and rose 4.2 percent to $68.17. CVS said prescriptions sales grew, although it took a loss after it wrote down the value of its Omnicare pharmacy services business by almost $4 billion.

In April, construction equipment company Caterpillar said it doubted it would top its first-quarter profit for the rest of this year. Investors were concerned that that might hold true for the rest of corporate America, but so far it hasn't.

A month ago analysts expected the companies of the S&P 500 to earn $160.32 per share in 2018. That's risen by almost a dollar, to $161.29 a share. Their estimates for 2019 have risen by a bit more than a dollar, to $177.52 a share from $176.38.

Twinkie maker Hostess Brands plunged 17.6 percent to $11.49 after it said its results were hurt by cuts in promotional support and inventory from a major retailer and higher costs, including for transportation.

Pizza maker Papa John's fell 5.2 percent to $38.94 after it said North American sales fell again. The company also cut its forecasts for the year. Papa John's is in a public spat it with founder John Schnatter, who was ousted as chairman in July after a report he used a racial slur in a conference call.

Domino's, a rival pizza delivery company, climbed 3.4 percent to $286.92.

Walt Disney fell 2.2 percent to $113.98 after the entertainment company's profit and revenue fell short of analysts' estimates.

Cars.com and Avis Budget Group both sank after cutting their sales forecasts. Rental car company Avis skidded 15.2 percent to $32.85 while Cars.com, an online auto marketplace, dipped 2.6 percent to $27.29.

Struggling rival Hertz jumped 24 percent Tuesday after a better-than-expected quarterly report. Hertz fell 7.3 percent to $18.11 Wednesday.

Bond prices turned higher. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note fell to 2.96 percent from 2.97 percent.

In other commodities trading, wholesale gasoline fell 4 percent to $2.02 gallon. Heating oil lost 2.5 percent to $2.12 a gallon. Natural gas rose 1.8 percent to $2.95 per 1,000 cubic feet.

Gold rose 0.2 percent to $1,221 an ounce. Silver gained 0.4 percent to $15.43 an ounce. Copper remained at $2.75 a pound.

The dollar fell to 110.96 yen from 111.43. The euro inched up to $1.1619 from $1.1594.

The German DAX fell 0.1 percent and France's CAC 40 lost 0.4 percent. In Britain, the FTSE 100 index rose 0.8 percent.

Japan's Nikkei 225 index gave up early gains and closed 0.1 percent lower. Hong Kong's Hang Seng index added 0.4 percent while South Korea's Kospi edged 0.1 percent higher.

          Tufts Medical Center in Boston announces new CEO      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

BOSTON — The head of a children's hospital in Canada has been named the new CEO of Tufts Medical Center.

The medical center announced Tuesday it is appointing Michael Apkon as its next leader beginning in the fall. Apkon currently is president and CEO for The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto.

Tufts Medical Board of Directors Chairman Joe Campanelli says Apkon has distinguished himself working in renowned institutions and developing innovative systems.

He previously worked as chief medical officer for Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and as executive director at Yale New Haven Children's Hospital.

Apkon, a Massachusetts native, says the appointment is a homecoming and his daughter, a student at Tufts University Medical School, originally led him to the position.

          CVS Health tops 2Q forecasts, downplays help from rebates      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

CVS Health detailed a better-than-expected second quarter Wednesday and then reassured investors that it doesn't depend heavily on much-criticized prescription drug rebates that regulators may eliminate.

Shares of the drugstore chain and pharmacy benefit manager climbed after CEO Larry Merlo told analysts that rebates from drugmakers will amount to only about 3 percent of the company's adjusted earnings this year.

Mizuho Securities USA analyst Ann Hynes said she thought they contributed about 14 percent, and Wall Street probably had an even higher estimate. She called the CVS disclosure "a big deal for the stock," and she said in a research note that it shows that any potential changes should be manageable for the company.

CVS Health runs the nation's second-largest drugstore chain and processes more than a billion prescriptions a year as a pharmacy benefit manager.

These so-called prescription drug middlemen have taken heat in the debate over rising drug prices, especially over rebates they receive from drugmakers. Critics say those largely secretive agreements play a major role in keeping drug prices elevated, and regulators have talked about eliminating them.

CVS Health says it passes well over 90 percent of its rebates on to its customers, and Merlo added Wednesday that the idea that what it retains affects prescription drug prices is "entirely false."

In the second quarter, CVS Health actually lost $2.56 billion, due to a hefty charge from its long-term care business. But adjusted earnings, which don't count such one-time items, came in at $1.69 per share. Revenue rose 2 percent to about $46.7 billion. Both figures beat expectations.

Analysts predicted earnings of $1.61 per share on $46.32 billion in revenue, according to FactSet.

The company booked a $3.9 billion charge in the quarter tied to its long-term care business. It said Wednesday that it has struggled to grow that business after spending more than $10 billion a few years ago to buy Omnicare, which provides pharmacy services to nursing homes and other clients.

That charge and some costs tied to a pending $69 billion acquisition of the health insurer Aetna led to the quarterly loss.

Overall, though, the company had a good quarter, Edward Jones analyst John Boylan said in another research note. He added that the Omnicare charge was a surprise, but he was already expecting modest results from that business.

For 2018, the company now expects to earn between $6.98 and $7.08 per share this year, better than the per-share projection of between $6.87 and $7.08 that the company put out in May.

Analysts expect, on average, earnings of $6.97 per share.

Regulators are still reviewing the Aetna deal, but CVS Health said it expected to close that transaction either late in the third quarter or early in the fourth.

Company executives have said they want to use the combination to move deeper into managing customer health and to expand the care CVS provides through all of its retail locations.

Shares of CVS Health Corp., which is based in Woonsocket, Rhode Island, climbed 4 percent to $68.04 Wednesday afternoon, while broader indexes were mixed. The stock is still down about 6 percent so far this year.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          There Is More Than One Way to “Spin” a Stat      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

I recently wrote about how ideology and confirmation bias has infiltrated research into the opioid overdose issue. I spoke about how researchers can “spin” their findings to comport with the prevailing narrative and improve the likelihood of getting published in peer-reviewed journals.

An example occurred yesterday, when the University of Michigan’s Institute for Healthcare Policy and Innovation announced, with the headline “Unwise opioids for wisdom teeth: Study shows link to long-term use in teens and young adults,” the publication of a research letter in JAMA that day by a team of its researchers.

The study of over 70,000 dental patients, ranging from 13 to 30 years in age, who had wisdom teeth extracted between 2009 and 2015 found, 

In all, 1.3 percent of 56,686 wisdom tooth patients who filled their opioid prescription between 2009 and 2015 went on to persistent opioid use, defined as two or more prescriptions filled in the next year written by any provider for any reason. That’s compared with 0.5 percent of the 14,256 wisdom tooth patients who didn’t fill a prescription.” 

Set aside the fact this study shows prolonged use is very low. Is there something inherently bad about refilling opioid prescriptions and staying on opioids longer than the average person if one is not addicted? Since we know that opioids have very few harmful effects on organs compared to alcohol, acetaminophen, or NSAIDs (with prolonged use), and since the addiction and misuse rate is somewhere around 1 percent, why are the authors so upset if some people stay on the drug longer than others. The lead author calls this a “long term ill effect.” Really?

Meanwhile, on the same day, another research letter was also published in JAMA by researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston that looked at 1.3 million patients who received 22 types of surgical procedures between the years 2004 and 2015. The study found a 30-day post-discharge overdose rate of 10.3 per 100,000 patients (0.01 percent), dropping to 3.2 overdoses per 100,000 patients (0.0032 percent) for those 61 to 90 days post-discharge. The authors found overdoses within 30 days post-discharge were very low in patients who were “opioid naïve”—2.8 per 100,000 patients (0.0028 percent)—as opposed to patients who were receiving opioids prior to surgery. In patients who were chronically receiving high-dose opioids prior to the operation (defined by the authors as greater than the equivalent of 100mg of morphine per day) that rate jumped to 142.5 per 100,000 patients (0.14 percent).

The authors stated in their concluding discussion:

This study demonstrated that opioid overdose after surgical discharge was rare. Patients were at risk of experiencing an overdose after leaving the hospital, especially in the first month. Furthermore, patients using high quantities of opioids preoperatively were at a heightened risk compared with those not receiving high-dose opioid therapy prior to the operation.”

The big takeaway from this study is that overdose rates in patients discharged on opioids postoperatively are extremely low—even in those who had been chronically receiving high-dose opioids preoperatively. But the authors of the study spent most of the time discussing the fact that overdoses can and do occur in patients discharged from surgery on opioids and occur more frequently in patients who had been on opioids preoperatively.

Give credit to the medical news service MedPage Today for providing dispassionate, no-spin coverage to both studies by covering them together in a story on August 7 entitled: “Post-Surgery Overdoses Are Rare—but higher odds of persistent use seen following some procedures.”


          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.

          Veteran Receives Penis Transplant To Repair War Wound      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
A team of surgeons says it has repaired the genitals of a serviceman severely injured by an explosion in Afghanistan. It's the first time a penis has been transplanted to treat a war wound. Doctors at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore say 11 surgeons were involved in the 14-hour surgery in March. The patient, who requested anonymity, is expected to be released from the hospital later this week, "and we are optimistic that he will regain near-normal urinary and sexual functions following full recovery," Dr. W.P. Andrew Lee said at a news conference announcing the surgery on Monday. The man's fertility won't be restored, however. His testicles did not survive his ordeal and a testicle transplant would raise deep ethical issues, because the genetic material in the sperm would be from the donor, not the recipient. Surgeons in South Africa and Boston have previously reported successful penis transplants. "Our transplant is different because it's a much larger piece of tissue," said Dr.

          Trump's legal team responds to Mueller interview request      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

WASHINGTON — Lawyers for President Donald Trump said Wednesday they have responded to the latest interview proposal from special counsel Robert Mueller, part of a months-long negotiation process over whether and how investigators can question the president on possible obstruction of justice in the Russia investigation.

The two sides have gone back and forth over the scope and conditions of an interview as Mueller looks to understand whether the president acted with a criminal intent to stymie the investigation into possible coordination between his campaign and Russia.

Mueller's team has put forward dozens of potential questions for the president, including about his firing of FBI Director James Comey last year and his public antagonism of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who recused himself from the Russia investigation against the president's wishes.

Though he's publicly railed against the Russia investigation, including earlier this week, Trump has said he's willing to be questioned. His lawyers have been far more hesitant and have challenged the right of investigators to interview Trump about actions they say he is authorized under the Constitution to take, such as firing an FBI director.

Speaking on his radio show Wednesday, Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow again expressed reservations about an interview with Mueller, saying it would set a "bad precedent to allow just unfettered questioning on that process."

"The decisions that are made here are all about the Constitution of the United States," Sekulow said.

Trump's lawyers did not detail the terms of any counteroffer they may have made and they also did not suggest that they were close to agreeing to an interview, suggesting the possibility of additional negotiations.

Sekulow said he expected Mueller's team to take time to evaluate the written response.

"These are not two paragraphs," Sekulow said. "These are well-thought-out legal positions that, as I've said multiple times, have implications not just for this president but for any presidency."

Rudy Giuliani, another lawyer for the president, said millions of pages of documents have been provided to Mueller along with testimony from dozens of witnesses.

"We're re-stating what we have been saying for months: It is time for the Office of Special Counsel to conclude its inquiry without further delay."

It is not clear what would happen if Trump's lawyers definitively reject Mueller's interview request. Mueller's team raised the prospect in March that it could subpoena the president, though this would unquestionably prompt a court fight.

The Supreme Court ruled in 1974 that President Richard Nixon could be forced to turn over recordings that had been subpoenaed.

"Ultimately this decision is the president's to make," Sekulow said on his radio show during a conversation with Guiliani. "We're going to give advice, but the president is going to make this decision."

The negotiations unfold as Trump's former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, stands trial in federal court in Virginia on financial crime charges. Manafort is one of four former Trump aides to be charged in the Mueller investigation.

          Ohio, Kansas elections too close to call; Trump claims win      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

WESTERVILLE, Ohio — Two high-stakes elections that tested President Donald Trump's clout and cost both parties millions of dollars were too close to call on Wednesday. Trump claimed victory in one nevertheless and proclaimed himself '5 for 5' for Tuesday's Election Day.

In battleground Ohio, the president took credit for Republican Troy Balderson's performance, calling it "a great victory," though the congressional contest could be headed to a recount. Democrats could also celebrate their strong showing in the district that has gone Republican for decades.

"We're not stopping now," Democrat Danny O'Connor told cheering supporters Tuesday night. Whoever is eventually declared the winner in the special election will take office immediately but only until the end of the year. The two men will face off again in November for the full 2019-2020 term.

But Trump declared unconditional victory, tweeting Wednesday, "As long as I campaign and/or support Senate and House candidates (within reason), they will win!"

He claimed to have helped five GOP candidates win, including Bill Schuette for Michigan governor, John James for Michigan Senate and Josh Hawley for Missouri Senate. "5 for 5!" Trump tweeted.

Though, as in Ohio, the Kansas primary for governor was too close to call.

With election officials halting the vote count Wednesday morning, Secretary of State Kris Kobach led incumbent Gov. Jeff Colyer by fewer than 200 votes. It could be several days before all absentee votes are counted.

The day's races in five states, like many before them, tested the persistence of Trump's fiery supporters and the momentum of the Democratic Party's anti-Trump resistance.

The results were helping determine the political landscape — and Trump's standing within his own party — as the GOP defends its House and Senate majorities this fall.

If Balderson holds on in Ohio, Republicans will have won eight of nine special House elections since 2016, most in Republican-leaning districts.

In Kansas, Republicans were fighting among themselves in an unusual battle for governor in which the president sided with the incumbent's challenger.

A new state law allows ballots postmarked as of Tuesday to be counted, so long as they arrive within three days of Election Day.

Kobach received a late endorsement from Trump. Colyer received the endorsement of the National Rifle Association and had the backing of Kansas political legend Bob Dole.

Should the polarizing Kobach win the primary, some Republican operatives fear he could lose the governorship to Democrats this fall. The race could become further disrupted if Kansas City-area businessman Greg Orman makes it onto the November ballot. He submitted petitions Monday with more than 10,000 signatures for what could become the most serious independent run for Kansas governor in decades.

Trump made his preference clear for Kobach.

"He is a fantastic guy who loves his State and our Country - he will be a GREAT Governor and has my full & total Endorsement! Strong on Crime, Border & Military," the president tweeted on the eve of the election.

In Kansas' 3rd Congressional District, Sharice Davids became the state's first Native American and gay nominee for Congress.

The 38-year-old attorney and activist prevailed in a close six-candidate Democratic primary and will face four-term Republican Rep. Kevin Yoder.

Davids edged labor lawyer Brent Welder, who received the endorsements and a June campaign visit from Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and New York House candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Democrats are targeting the district, which includes the state's metropolitan Kansas City area. Hillary Clinton narrowly won it in the 2016 presidential race.

In Ohio, the script for the special election was somewhat familiar this year: An experienced Trump loyalist, Balderson, was fighting a strong challenge from O'Connor, a fresh-faced Democrat in the state's 12th congressional District, a Columbus-area suburban area held by the Republican Party for more than three decades. As voters were going to the polls, Trump said Balderson would make a "great congressman."

The winner takes the seat previously held by Pat Tiberi, a nine-term incumbent who resigned to take a job with an Ohio business group.

There were at least 3,367 provisional ballots left to be reviewed. That's enough for O'Connor to potentially pick up enough to force a recount.

The Associated Press does not declare winners in races subject to an automatic recount.

In a special election season that featured nearly a dozen congressional contests, Democrats claimed just a handful of wins, but they may have cause for optimism this fall. In virtually every special election test dating back to the spring of 2017, Democratic candidates performed significantly better than their party had in those same places two years earlier.

Trump won Ohio's 12th Congressional District, for example, by more than 11 points in 2016; on Tuesday night, Balderson and O'Connor were separated by less than 1 point.

There are 79 House races this fall considered more competitive than the Ohio district — at least looking at Trump's 2016 performance — according to data compiled by the Democrats' national campaign committee.

Despite the deadlocked race, the details of the Ohio returns suggest considerably higher Democratic enthusiasm less than 100 days before the midterms.

O'Connor's total of nearly 100,000 votes far exceeded what the Republican Tiberi's Democratic opponent got in 2014. Balderson's total — just more than 101,500 votes — was barely two-thirds of Tiberi's 2014 mark of about 150,000.

"Over the next three months, I'm going to do everything I can to keep America great again, so that when we come back here in November — get ready, we gotta come back here in November — I have earned your vote for a second time," Balderson told supporters.

It's unclear how much Trump's support helped or hurt Balderson. Described by campaign operatives as a "Whole Foods" district, the largely suburban region features a more affluent and educated voter base than the typical Trump stronghold.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a leading voice in the GOP's shrinking anti-Trump wing, once represented the district in Congress.

At times, the race centered on Trump's tax cuts as much as the candidates.

O'Connor and his Democratic allies railed against the tax plan, casting it as a giveaway for the rich that exacerbates federal deficits and threatens Medicare and Social Security. Balderson and his Republican allies have backed away from the tax plan in recent weeks, training their fire instead on top House Democrat Nancy Pelosi.

O'Connor's campaign spent $2.25 million on advertising compared to Balderson's $507,000, according to campaign tallies of ad spending. But the Republican campaign arm and its allied super PAC picked up the slack, spending more than $4 million between them.

In Michigan , former state Rep. Rashida Tlaib is poised to become the first Muslim woman in Congress. She won the Democratic nomination to run unopposed in November.

The field was set in two Senate contests.

In Missouri, Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill claimed her party's nomination, while state Attorney General Josh Hawley will represent the GOP.

And in Michigan, Democratic Sen. Debbie Stabenow will take on military veteran and business executive John James, who won the GOP nomination. James would join Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina as the chamber's only black Republicans.

Trump tweeted that James is "a potential Republican star."

          Senate candidates take stance on Elizabeth Warren      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Subtitle: 
Diehl: Warren bigger threat than Russia

U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren is a bigger threat than Russia, GOP U.S. Senate hopeful Geoff Diehl insisted yesterday, saying his Democratic rival is the one pushing communist notions.

“Russia is not the old Soviet Union,” Diehl said during yesterday’s Boston Herald Radio’s GOP Senate primary debate. “To me, the bigger threat is someone like Elizabeth Warren.”

The debate — the first face-to-face event between the three GOP candidates for Senate — was moderated by Herald columnists Joe Battenfeld and Hillary Chabot. Diehl, a state representative and front-runner in the race, faced former Romney cabinet member Beth Lindstrom and businessman John Kingston.

“Elizabeth Warren is a bigger threat than Russia?” Battenfeld said, pressing Diehl on his statement. Diehl doubled down.

“Elizabeth Warren is a big problem,” Diehl said. “She wants to get our — what you heard her recently on CNBC that she wants to tax us anywhere between 50 percent and 90 percent. She seems to be the new communist regime here in the United States, with the progressive movement to make government so big. Whether it’s taking over health care or free education, all of that coming at a price tag, with health care at $32.6 trillion. That doubles our $34 trillion federal budget.”

Kingston pushed back, saying, “We have to be careful with our false equivalency … the Russians aren’t our friends — they just flat aren’t.”

Diehl then tried to walk back his remarks, saying he was being “facetious” about Warren.

When asked about the comments and others throughout the debate framing Warren as an extremist, the senator’s campaign spokeswoman Gabrielle Farrell told the Herald, “Massachusetts Republicans will decide among themselves who will run for U.S. Senate. Senator Warren is focused on her work fighting for the people of Massachusetts and standing up for working families against powerful corporate interests.”

Meanwhile, Lindstrom came out swinging in the debate, suggesting front-runner Diehl is unelectable in deep-blue Massachusetts because of his full-throated support for Trump.

“You will have a tough time if you are a blind loyalist like Geoff is,” said the centrist Lindstrom, though she said she is ready to vote to re-elect Trump. “He cannot unseat her.”

Diehl shot back that his long-standing support for Trump could benefit Massachusetts citizens by giving the state stronger pull than it would have otherwise.

“That gives me a seat at the table that Massachusetts doesn’t have,” Diehl said.

Massachusetts political strategists say whoever receives the GOP nod in the Sept. 4 primary will have a very difficult time taking on Warren.

“I don’t think any of the Republican candidates have a shot at winning this,” political observer Todd Domke told the Herald.

“This state is so anti-Trump. … That’s what it’ll come down to: are you pro-Trump or anti-Trump? And Trump will help make it that binary of a choice.”

          Unearthed video shows Trump questioned John McCain’s ‘war-hero’ status as early as 1999      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

NEW YORK—President Donald Trump’s beef with John McCain has been cooking for nearly two decades.

While mulling a long-shot White House bid in 1999, Trump went after McCain during a TV interview, questioning whether the Arizona senator was a “war hero” even though he spent more than five years in captivity as a prisoner of war in Vietnam.

“He was captured,” Trump said after CBS anchor Dan Rather asked what he thought of the Republican senator, who had at the time just kicked off his first presidential run. “Does being captured make you a hero? I don’t know. I’m not sure.”

Trump — who received five draft deferments while McCain fought in Vietnam — had made a failed run for the Reform Party’s presidential nomination that year. The interview with Rather went viral on social media Tuesday after a reporter unearthed it.

The White House did not return a request for comment from The New York Daily News. A spokesman for McCain did not respond to e-mailed questions.

Trump’s 1999 remarks are remarkably similar to ones he made on multiple occasions during the 2016 campaign.

“I like people that weren’t captured,” Trump said of McCain during a rally in Iowa in July 2015, claiming the longtime Republican was “not a war hero.”

The comments drew bipartisan condemnation at the time, but Trump hasn’t backed down.

Even though McCain was diagnosed with brain cancer last July, Trump has repeatedly gone after the 81-year-old senator for his decisive vote last year against repealing the Obama-era Affordable Care Act. Trump delivered one such attack as recently as last week during a campaign-style rally in Florida.

The 1999 interview resurfaced hours before Trump issued a statement in honor of Purple Heart Day, which celebrates recipients of the nation’s highest military decoration — two of which have been awarded to McCain.

“This award symbolizes the timeless and noble values of patriotism, honor, and courage, which are hallmarks of our Armed Forces,” Trump said. “In every generation, the Purple Heart has been awarded to American service members in recognition of their devotion to duty and sacrifice on the battlefield.”

McCain’s daughter, Meghan McCain, has frequently called out Trump for his broadsides against her cancer-stricken father, calling the president “gross and pathetic.”

After Trump’s 1999 remarks resurfaced Tuesday, the younger McCain took a more subtle approach, tweeting out a news story titled, “What John McCain Went Through as a POW — for five and a half years, McCain was held captive by the North Vietnamese.”

          Laura van den Berg's Playlist for Her Novel "The Third Hotel"      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The Third Hotel#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

In the Book Notes series, authors create and discuss a music playlist that relates in some way to their recently published book.

Previous contributors include Jesmyn Ward, Lauren Groff, Bret Easton Ellis, Celeste Ng, T.C. Boyle, Dana Spiotta, Amy Bloom, Aimee Bender, Heidi Julavits, Hari Kunzru, and many others.

Laura van den Berg's The Third Hotel is a haunting and innovative novel, easily one of my favorite books of the year.

Kirkus wrote of the book:

"Laced through with sharp insights―not just on marriage and grief, but also on the pull of travel and the dynamics of horror movies―the layers of [The Third Hotel] fit together so seamlessly they're almost Escher-esque. The line between the real and the imagined is forever blurry, and the result of all that ambiguity is both moving and unsettling. Gorgeously haunting and wholly original; a novel that rewards patience."


In her own words, here is Laura van den Berg's Book Notes music playlist for her novel The Third Hotel:



For every book, there is always a moment—or, more accurately, moments—when I wake up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat and think, with what feels like certainty, I will never finish this project. Experience has taught me that this kind of flattening doubt is typically a prelude to the work undergoing a major and necessary transformation, that I am about to jump off a new cliff narratively speaking and I am preemptively terrified, but nevertheless those sleepless nights can be a difficult psychic space to move through.

I love music and yet my approach to listening to music when I write is pretty scattershot. Sometimes I don’t listen to any music at all. Sometimes playlists. Sometimes one song on a loop, for a kind of sensory hypnosis. I often can’t remember what exactly I listened to when I was working on a book, let alone the timeline, because when I am really highly focused I stop hearing any sound at all.

However! I do tend to remember, with a little more sharpness, the songs that pulled me through the I will never finish this project 2AM night sweats phase, six of which I’ve listed below. Why these six, you ask? In their very different ways, each of them left me feeling energized and clear-headed and motivated, nudged me a little farther down the path forward (also, I firmly believe that listening to David Bowie will help with most problems).

1. Heroes, David Bowie

2. Doves, Future Islands

3. Room on Fire, The Strokes

4. Rolled Together, The Antlers

5. Fleur de Lys, Phoenix

6. I’ll Still Destroy You, The National

          [Ilya Somin] Yet Another Federal Court Rejects Claims that Exposing Taxis to Competition from Uber and Lyft is a Taking      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

This is the latest in a series of federal court decision rejecting such arguments. The right to operate a taxi business does not create a "property" right in suppressing competition.

Over the last decade, traditional taxi cab company profits have taken a hit because of competition from ride-sharing services, such as Uber and Lyft. Some cab companies have tried to fight back by filing cases arguing that local governments that allow Uber and Lyft to compete with taxis have somehow violated the Takings Clause of the Fifth Amendment, which requires the government to pay "just compensation" when it takes "private property." On Monday, the US Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit issued the latest in a long line of federal court decisions rejecting such claims. Nick Sibilla of the Institute for Justice has an excellent summary of the ruling and its significance, in Forbes:

In a resounding win for innovation and economic liberty, the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously ruled on Monday that taxi owners in Miami-Dade County have "no right to block competition" from ride-hailing firms like Lyft and Uber. By rejecting the notion that incumbent businesses are "entitled to…a competition-free marketplace," the 11th Circuit's decision should set an important precedent not just for the gig economy, but for reformers looking to crack open $400,000 on the secondary market....

But when Uber and Lyft entered the scene, they dramatically expanded the supply of available rides....

The rise of ride-hailing was facilitated by a drastic change in the regulatory environment. At first, county code enforcement officers conducted several undercover sting operations, ticketing drivers and even impounding their cars. But in 2016, Miami-Dade County approved an ordinance that legalized ride-hailing....

Facing greater competition, the value for a taxi medallion has since plunged by 90%, and now fetches $35,000 at auction. With a once lucrative business model now imploding, three taxi companies, Checker Cab, B&S Taxi and Miadeco, took the county to court and demanded a bailout. Echoing legal arguments that failed in Boston, Chicago, Georgia, and Philadelphia, the medallion owners argued that by legalizing Uber and Lyft, Miami-Dade County had "significantly devalued" their medallions....

In their view, deregulation was an unconstitutional "taking" that violated their Fifth Amendment rights.....

Writing for the majority, Judge Stanley Marcus meticulously dismissed their claim. Although the owners have an "intangible property interest" in their medallions, "the medallions conveyed only a property interest in providing taxicab services in Miami-Dade County—not in barring competitors," Judge Marcus explained. "Even the most cursory examination of the code reveals that the county did not give the medallion holders the right to enjoin competition," he added, while "the code furnished no basis for the medallion holders' assertion that they were entitled to, or could reasonably rely on a competition-free marketplace."

An earlier ruling on the same issue by Judge Richard Posner of the US Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit (which Judge Marcus cited in his opinion), provides a particularly good summary of why exposing businesses to competition does not qualify as a taking:

[T]he City [of Chicago] is not confiscating any taxi medallions; it is merely exposing the taxicab companies to new competition —competition from Uber and the other TNPs [Transportation Network Providers].

"Property" does not include a right to be free from competition. A license to operate a coffee shop doesn't authorize the licensee to enjoin a tea shop from opening. When property consists of a license to operate in a market in a particular way, it does not carry with it a right to be free from competition in that market... Indeed when new technologies, or new business methods, appear, a common result is the decline or even disappearance of the old. Were the old deemed to have a constitutional right to preclude the entry of the new into the markets of the old, economic progress might grind to a halt. Instead of taxis we might have horse and buggies; instead of the telephone, the telegraph; instead of computers, slide rules.....

Taxi medallions authorize the owners to own and operate taxis, not to exclude competing transportation services. The plaintiffs in this case cannot exclude competition from buses or trains or bicycles or liveries or chartered sightseeing vehicles or jitney buses or walking; indeed they cannot exclude competition from taxicab newcomers, for the City has reserved the right... to issue additional taxi medallions. Why then should the plaintiffs be allowed to exclude competition from Uber?

Judge Marcus and other judges who have ruled on such cases appropriately relied on the fact that city medallion laws did not include any guarantees against competition. As a legal matter, they only give holders the right to operate a taxi business themselves, not the right to suppress competitors. In my view, however, there would be no violation of the Takings Clause even if the medallion laws did include a legal right to block competition, which was then repealed by later legislation. I explained why in this post discussing an earlier taxi/takings case:

[E]ven if the laws conferring medallions did explicitly guarantee the holders protection against competition, that still would not be enough for courts to require compensation under the Takings Clause. The Clause does not require government to compensate businesses for any and all policies that reduce their profits. Compensation is only necessary if the government takes "private property." A state-created legal right to exclude competitors from a market is not private property. It goes beyond giving the holder control over his or her own property, and instead allows them to restrict the use of others' property (in this case, cars). Such a right is not private property as that concept is usually understood in Anglo-American law, and certainly would not have been considered such by the framers and ratifiers of the Fifth Amendment.

One could point to the example of intellectual property as a property right protected by the Takings Clause, despite the fact that it is in large part a legal right to constrain competition. But, as my George Mason University colleague Adam Mossoff argues in an important article, the Founders may have considered patent and copyright to be "natural" property rights, not merely government-created monopolies. If Mossoff is right, intellectual property is readily distinguishable from government-created cartels in conventional markets, including taxi medallion systems. If not, perhaps courts should rethink the status of intellectual property under the Takings Clause (though Congress would, of course, remain free to provide compensation to aggrieved intellectual property owners by statute).

In addition to rejecting the taxi companies' takings claim, Judge Marcus' opinion also ruled against their contention that deregulation of ride-sharing services violated the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment because ride-sharing firms ended up less heavily regulated than traditional taxis. He does an excellent job of refuting this very weak argument. Similar arguments have also been rejected by other courts that have ruled on this issue.

Oxford Study Finds Conservatives Are ‘Right To Be Skeptical’ of Scientists

An initial note:  The leading author in the paper mentioned below is Nathan Cofnas, not Confas.  It is of course an unusual name so confusion is understood. It is a Lithuanian Jewish name.

I have read the original academic journal article and rather admire the way Nathan has minimized his upsetting of applecarts.  Most social psychological research is utter bilge but Nathan quotes a lot of it with a straight face. He establishes his point about biased scientists even while not criticizing a lot of biased science.

So his paper is a very scholarly and thorough discussion of three areas where the positions of the scientific establishment are unreasonably liberal. And he doesn't even mention global warming!  Conservatives have long been acutely aware of the liberal bias in academe but Cofnas gives detailed chapter and verse coverage of how that affects scientific findings.

I myself worked for ten years in a sociology department of a highly rated Australian university and rapidly became aware that all of the other teaching staff were Marxists of one stripe or another -- so it was clear from that that conservative ideas would not get fair consideration, if they were considered at all.

Cofnas mentions the difficulty that conservatives have in getting results of their research published in the academic journals.  I experienced that and had to go to great lengths to overcome it.  I overcame it by doing much higher quality work than Leftist authors were presenting  -- which was not actually that hard.

By that I am referring to the virtually universal practice among psychologists of carrying out their research using either white rats or available groups of freshman students.  Such studies are no more than childish games.  To arrive at any sort of generalizable conclusion, you have to base your research on  a representative sample of the population you wish to discuss. Normal psychological research, however, does nor use representative samples of anything.  They do not even attempt to use representative samples of freshman students!  Yet such totally useless research results are routinely presented as if they were generalizable to all humanity!  That is just about as far away from real science as you can get.  It's about as authoritative as medieval theology.

So I used that to my advantage.  I did my research using real random samples of specifiable populations. I went out and doorknocked, for instance -- something that would give almost any leftist academic the horrors. So when my papers came up for evaluation, editors and referees would have looked absurd  even to themselves if they rejected the only bit of generalizable research that they had ever seen.  Even then, however, if I questioned liberal dogma too sharply or sweepingly, my papers were rejected.  Like Cofnas I had to stick to a careful consideration of just a few detailed points.

So conservatives do well to be skeptical of conclusions from liberal social scientists. Their conclusions are not only biased, they are in general just rubbish by normal scientific standards, and blatant rubbish at that.

Wisely, Cofnas did not extend his critique to global warming. But that allegedly "scientific" theory was obviously wrong from its first formulation in the 80s.  The theory is that the worldwide expansion of industrialization after WWII led to a great increase in atmospheric CO2 and that that rise in turn caused a rise in the global temperature.

And they were half right.  CO2 levels did shoot up steadily in that timeframe.  But here is the catch:  Temperature levels did not.  They plateaued. Over a 30 year period from 1945 to 1975 there was no rise in the global temperature.  Temperatures just bobbed up and down around a static average.  Temperatures at the end of the period were essentially the same as at the beginning.  It would be hard to think of a clearer disproof of the temperature effects of CO2.  When Warmists are confronted by that fact they mumble something about "special factors".  Special factors that exactly  cancelled out rising CO2 effects for 30 years?


Conservatives have long been skeptical of certain scientific claims, especially in regard to the science behind man-made global warming.

However, a study by the University of Oxford suggests that there may be a reason for that. In fact, they go as far as to say that conservatives have a “right” to be skeptical of scientists.

The study “Does activism in the Social Sciences Explain Conservatives’ Distrust of Scientists?” was led by Professor of Biology for the University of Oxford Nathan Confas and was first published online back in 2017. However, the study was brought to light again when it was republished this month in the recent issue of the American Sociologist.

While conservatives’ distrust in scientists has increasingly decreased every year since 1974, there has been little understanding as to why.

The research hits the well-repeated claim that conservatives often dismiss scientific claims because they contradict their religious beliefs. There are some who believe that conservatives throw out these scientific claims because, as Confas and his team note, it “threatens their worldview.”

However, Confas told Campus Reform that this was a “misguided approach.” Additionally, he said that “liberals and conservatives are equally likely to discredit science if it conflicts with their world-view.”

Confas proposed that the reason so many conservatives are skeptical is that there is an increase of liberalism within the scientific community.

He cited a recent study to prove his point. The study surveyed 479 sociology professors, and only 4 percent identified as conservative or libertarian. Compare this with the 86 percent who identify themselves as liberal or left-radical.

Additionally, Confas suggests that goal of sociology “involves reorganizing society to fight inequality, oppression, poverty, hierarchy, and the like. Its ideological orientation arose out of … civil rights, feminism, Marxism, and other progressive movements.”

But it’s not just the area of sociology where this bias is creeping in. UNT professor George Yancy published a piece titled, “Yes Academic Bias is a Problem and We Need to Address It.”

“Given the reality that academics are much more politically progressive and irreligious than the general population, one should be concerned about the potential of liberal and secular bias,” he wrote. “Those like myself are also concerned about academic bias simply because such bias can lead to bad science.”

It’s this “bias” that leads to “bad science” that is concerning to Confas. He told Campus Reform, “Taking the easy route isn’t something that I or my coauthors are tempted to do. We want to do our part to help correct the science.”

He added, “Conservatives are right to be skeptical. Take any politicized issue that is connected to some disagreement about scientific fact. I do not believe there is a single case in the last couple decades where a major scientific organization took a position that went against the platform of the Democratic Party.”

Flashback: Trump Stops Motorcade After Seeing Firefighters in Full Turnouts

President Donald Trump has made respect for the men and women who serve our communities a top priority for his administration. Whether it’s police or firefighters, he’s been conspicuously generous with his praise.

That translates into plenty of speeches and tweets, but also real-world displays like this one from Bethpage, New York.

According to BizPac Review, the incident took place in May as the president was leaving a forum on illegal immigration. (Long Island has seen a wave of violence from the MS-13 gang. The president spent part of the meeting paying tribute to families who had lost loved ones to the violence.)

That’s not what got everyone talking, however. What has created a buzz was a bunch of firemen standing to salute the president in their full turnouts — fire helmets, jackets, boots, the whole nine yards.

And, as it turned out, the president was more than willing to salute them by stopping his motorcade. The video shows several vehicles go by as the firemen are saluting. Then, as the presidential limo came by, it stopped.

A few individuals emerged from the limo, after which the very familiar figure of President Trump could be seen getting out.

Cheers greeted the president as he walked over to the group. He eventually signalled the men to come over and the two sides greeted each other warmly.

“Thank you, thank you,” Trump said as he shook the hands of the firemen.

“That’s awesome!” one of the firefighters could be heard saying. And, indeed, you can’t say they didn’t get the experience of a lifetime.

YouTube users seemed to agree. “Best president ever!” one wrote.  “President Trump…..a man for the people. He loves America and he loves her people,” another wrote.

Keep in mind that full firefighter turnout gear isn’t exactly a) light or b) cool. May isn’t the coolest month in New York, either. For these guys to be out in the street with their full gear on says a lot about how they feel about the president.

Then again, the president has said a lot about how he feels about them. Just this past weekend, Trump told an Ohio rally audience that his administration is “standing up for the heroes who protect our country.”

If these firemen are any indication, that relationship is definitely reciprocal.

Elizabeth Warren under fire after ripping U.S. criminal-justice system at Netroots Nation

She's just solid evil

Republican Senate hopeful Beth Lindstrom called Monday on Sen. Elizabeth Warren to apologize for denouncing the U.S. criminal-justice system as “racist … front to back.”

“Sen. Warren needs to apologize to every police officer, judge, corrections department employee, probation worker and the many other honest and decent people in our criminal justice system who have been smeared by her alienating and careless rhetoric,” Ms. Lindstrom said in a statement.

She referred to Ms. Warren’s comments Friday at Netroots Nation, an annual left-wing gathering, where the Democratic senator appeared as part of a session at Dillard University in New Orleans.

“Let’s just start with the hard truth about our criminal justice system,” Ms. Warren said. “It’s racist. It is. And when I say our system, I mean all the way. I mean front to back. We’re talking about the front end on what you declare to be illegal; on how you enforce it, on who gets arrested.”

Those taking umbrage at the Democratic senator’s blast included the right-leaning Boston Herald editorial board, which asked, “Is there any hard-working American who Elizabeth Warren has not condemned?”

“The United States is a terrible place. At least that appeared to be the theme of Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s ominous chat at a historically black college on Friday,” said the Herald op-ed headlined, “Liz Warren keeps playing blame game.”

Ms. Lindstrom, one of three Republicans seeking the party’s nomination in the Sept. 4 primary, accused Ms. Warren of smearing those who work in the justice system to boost her chances for a possible presidential run in 2020.

“Words like this are polarizing and divisive: completely used for personal political gain for 2020, without regard for how they sound to the many good people in Massachusetts and around the country who are punishing criminals, keeping us safe and administering justice,” Ms. Lindstrom said.

Others pointed out that until recently, the Justice Department was headed by Attorney General Loretta Lynch, who succeeded Eric Holder during the Obama administration. Both are black.

A compromise that might be needed for immigration reform

Rejection of House Republicans’ “compromise” immigration bill on June 27 by a lopsided 121-301 margin may be exactly what is needed to end the decades long immigration reform gridlock, if more-moderate House conservatives learn the right lesson from the bill’s failure.

The compromise bill was intended to attract support from these more moderate Republicans after a more restrictionist bill proposed by Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), was defeated 193-231 the previous week. Neither of the bills received a single Democratic vote.

In truth the votes, rather than serious attempts to fix immigration policy, were just political theater in advance of this Fall’s midterm elections. Everyone involved knew that neither bill would attract the necessary Democratic support needed to pass the Senate.

Because Goodlatte’s bill, which would have created legal protection for fewer immigrants who were brought to the United States as children and more severely restricted future legal immigration, received greater support, there is danger that Republicans will believe that more restrictive immigration bills may have more of a chance of passing in the future.

Although President Trump ultimately supported the compromise bill, he had previously tweeted that “Republicans should stop wasting their time on Immigration until after we elect more Senators and Congressmen/women in November” and that “We can pass great legislation after the Red Wave!”

That’s exactly the wrong lesson. Republicans are so deeply divided on this issue that even if they gain seats in both houses of Congress, immigration reform would still require bipartisan support to become law. To get bipartisan support they’ll have to forgo the votes of those members of Congress who want to decrease legal immigration. Both recent proposals alienated Democrats with changes that would have decreased future legal immigration through existing family reunification visas.

Though you might not know it from the angry rhetoric, U.S. public opinion has been becoming more favorable, not less, on immigration in recent years. According the Gallup Poll that asks “Should Immigration Be Kept at Its Present Level, Increased, or Decreased?” 39 percent of respondents said immigration should be kept at current levels. While 29 percent said immigration levels should decrease, that number was down from 38 percent two years ago. Similarly, the 28 percent that said immigration should increase was up from 21 percent two years ago. Opinions have trended in these directions for decades and two years of President Trump’s rhetoric hasn’t changed this. As the opinions of voters continue their trend in this direction, politicians will ultimately follow.

Any immigration reform bill that stands a chance of becoming law, with the current Congress or in the foreseeable future, will need to be less restrictive than the ones the Republicans just proposed. That’s a good thing, not just for immigrants, but for native born Americans as well.

Economists who study immigration do not find the negative consequences that many people imagine. Immigration raises the income, on average, of the native born. Immigrants create about as many jobs as they take and they don’t depress wages of the vast majority of Americans.

Passable immigration reform today would likely trade funding for a border wall for a legal pathway to citizenship for immigrants brought to the United States illegally when they were children. Law and order Republicans could claim that they were securing the border and they could defend themselves against charges of “amnesty.” Since this reform only applies to people brought here as children, they could point out that when children break most other laws in the United States they are held to a lesser standard than adults and that this is no different.

Democrats would be wise to sign on to such deal too. Net migration from Mexico has been negative since the Great Recession. So, while symbolic, the wall would do little to change immigration numbers.

Such a reform would still leave 11 to 12 million immigrants, most of whom contribute to our overall prosperity, in the United States illegally. But no politically viable proposal is possible for them at the moment. Hopefully, if voters’ opinions continue to move in the direction they have been moving, even this may be possible in the future.

Previously:

This week: We continue picking the best number for each position with the defensive side. Offense is here.

Rules: It's what you wore when you contributed there. Starts, stats, big plays, etc.

All photos from priceless resource UM Bentley Library unless stated otherwise. All-Americans highlighted.

-----------------------------------------

A Short History of Defensive Positions

My goal so this wouldn't just be some useless offseason #content was to include all players since they started having numbers in the '20s. That way it's not just "here's the guys we remember from the last 10 years."

That makes defense WAY harder to do this (correctly) than for offense. Great two-way players are best known for their offensive feats and were typically listed with their offensive positions, for example Benny Friedman played quarterback on offense but halfback (cornerback) on defense. Defensive positions have changed dramatically over the years, and what you call a thing often takes another generation to change after the job has changed (for a taste, watch this 1940s defensive tutorial).

image

From the '30s to the '60s centers, fullbacks and one of the guards played linebacker. One safety played in the parking lot to deter quick punts because offenses would take a 50-yard field position swing over possession any day.

Transition periods are good for new position names and player nicknames—we're going through one now with Viper—but tough on roster data. Exempli gratia: the starter data list Dominic Tedesco and John Anderson as defensive ends in 1976. In 1977 they were both starters again but now at "outside linebacker."

No, Michigan didn't "switch" that year from a 5-2 defense to a 3-4. They just fixed the glitch. This gets especially troublesome when you consider how often shifts put 3-4 "tackles" on the edge. I mean, they called Mark Messner a tackle his whole career, even though he spent that career aligned up like so:

image_thumb[28]
#60 at the bottom

Since the jobs haven't changed nearly as much as the names, I'm going to do defense by job description.

[After THE JUMP: The numbers.]

------------------------------------------------------

Nose Tackle (Down Guard, Middle Guard, Nose Guard) #96

Will Carr, Ryan Glasgow, Bob Kolesar as an underclassman

image

[Right: Upchurch]

My new rules made this hard: a lot of HM options and no clear winner. The top three were especially close: Martin and Glasgow were very similar players, and Carr was better than Bo's early '70s starter Greg Ellis, but #68 has (the better years of) a Seven-Oaks post, and 96 includes a guy from when I was at school that we try not to talk about. And I wanted to go with 54 because one should take every opportunity to mention Donnie Warner, since Michigan had a non-scumbag, non-loser, non-bench player who was the same size as Rudy with a tougher life story starting on a better defense because Warner was friggin' Sherlock Holmes at knowing offensive linemen tells.

Ultimately I nodded toward the more recent two because we can still talk about the 1940s star who wore this number as a sophomore. Bob "The Maulin' Medical Man" Kolesar was the backside guard (with Julius Franks the frontside) and played on or off the line depending of if Michigan was in its 6-2 or 5-3 alignment. However he only did that for a few games in 1940 before switching to #68. He would later try to stay in med school while enlisted in the U.S. Army and technically on the Detroit Lions. He also kicked off a legacy: Bob's distant cousin Bill played tackle for Michigan in the '50s, Bill's son John Kolesar, a receiver, played with Harbaugh. John's son Caden is a 2019 DB/ATH at St. Ed's with mostly MAC offers who might end up at Northwestern.

Nex let's talk about Will Carr, an All-American in 1996 who can only be googled by including the words "Jason Horn." Carr can take credit for some of that, as Horn wracked up 11 sacks and 18 TFLs in '95 with Carr sucking up doubles. He also lined up at fullback some, though he tended to fumble when he had the ball. Fortunately he lost control after he broke the plane on this one.

image

And Ryan Glasgow was the best of the Glasgows. Remember when about this time one year there were practice reports that Glasgow was ahead of Ondre Pipkins? Larry Harrison was a planetoid starter until he was kicked off the team for creepiness.

#68: Mike Martin (2009-'11), Greg Ellis (1971-'72), and Robert Kolesar (1941-'42). FYI 1947-'48 star OG Stu Wilkins played linebacker on defense when Crisler wasn't inventing the platoon system to get him off the field)
#54: Steve Graves (1976-'77), Donnie Warner (1973), Ernest Pederson Jr. (1936)

All backups no starters number:
#61: Alex Callahan (1957-'58), (Donald Dugger 1951, '53), Lloyd Henevald (1948-'49), John Gallagher (1943), Stanley Broadnax (1965), Nate Rodgers (1983-'84)

Enough of these:
#93 is the jersey they give planetoids who don't pan out: Alex Ofili, Jason Kates, Marques Slocum, Ray Edmonds, Erik Knuth, Jason Ptak, and Ron Kocan—they all share Ofili's single start.

Bring it back:
#65: It had a great run after Dominic Tomasi then went to backups in the '70s and disappeared thereafter.

Defensive Tackle (DT, 3T, 3-4 DE, 4-3 under 5T) #11

Francis Wistert, Albert Wistert, Alvin Wistert

image

So 60 has Messner, and Buster Stanley. 97 has Hutch and a pair of decent early 2000s DTs. 77 has two All-Americans, one of whom goes by "Sheriff" because prior to playing for Michigan Milan Lazetich was the sheriff of his Montana town.

But we have to talk about the Wisterts, who mic-dropped their retired number for this position before we even got to the second half of the 20th century. The Wisterts would be the Hughes family if all three played for Michigan (Jack after 10 years of doing manual labor). Except it was football, and they all played both ways in three different eras: Francis for Kipke, Albert for Crisler, and Alvin for Oosterbaan. All three were All-Americans. All three are members of the College Football Hall of Fame. Between them they have four national championships.

Francis "Whitey" Wistert was the eldest of five children of Lithuanian immigrants—their father was a police officer killed in the line of duty when Whitey was 15. At 6'2"/210 he was big for his era, a star on the offensive line. In an era of misdirection on misdirection Whitey defensively was particularly hard to fool. Third brother Albert "Ox" Wistert was the most talented and second to play for Michigan. His line play was cited as the reason Michigan beat Notre Dame in '42, a game that was only slightly less important than the War. Second bro Alvin "Moose" Wistert was the third to come to Michigan, the largest of the three, and the least likely to end up a Michigan football star. Moose dropped out of high school worked in a factory until WWII, when he served in the Marines. He took the GI bill to Boston University at Age 30 then transferred to Michigan. He was the defensive star of the championship '47 and '48 teams, and captain of the '49 team, at 33.

Other contenders:
#72 Robert Wahl, Jim Orwing (1955-'57), Bill Pritula ('46-'48), James Balog (1952-'53), Clement Bauman (1944), John Yanz (1963-'64)
#60: Mark Messner, Buster Stanley, Grant Bowman
#97 Chris Hutchinson, Shawn Lazarus, Will Johnson, Jeff Perlinger, Chris Ziemann
#68: Albert Wistert for a year, Stu Wilkins, Gregory Ellis
#75 : Bill Yearby, Bruce Hilkene, Richard Williams, Ralph Stribe, Doug Troszak, William Kolesar
#76: Trent Zenkewicz, Tom Johnson, Ed Meads, Jon Schopf, Mike Leoni, Ralph Kohl, Charles Ruzicka
#61: Alex Callahan, Don Dugger, John Marcum, John Gallagher, Lloyd Heneveld, Nate Rogers
#90: Ninef Aghakhan, Norman Heuer, Michael Keller, Juaquin Feazell, Chris Godfrey, Vinny DeFelice

Enough of these:
So much of recent history had Greg Mattison or Brady Hoke coaching the DL and they're really good at finding and developing this kind of guy. Plus, like, do you want a number nobody's worn since 1969 (74?). All numbers are open for DTs.

Bring it back:
#91: Josh Williams had 34 starts, only two other tackles have worn it.
#39: Henry Hill, Edwin Poorman Will Heininger. Everyone who wore it started.
#80: Alan Branch is all alone.
#11: Surely we can find a dollop of Wistertian blood today to be worthy of unretiring this. Cross with some Glasgow genes and let's goooooo!

-----------------------------------------------

Defensive End/Edge: #56

LaMarr Woodley (2003-'06), James Hall (1997-'99), Bill Hewitt (1929-'31), Edgar Madsen (1924)

image

This is a weird position grouping: I included all work done as a 4-3 defensive end (4-3 under 5-techs went with the DTs) all the way out to 3-4 OLBs, so we're including weakside ends, SAMs, and all of those 5-2 Oklahoma ends from the '60s and '70s. Basically guys expected to pass rush and hold the edge of the line.

I think when I announced I was doing this people figured #56 would take this position because of Woodley and Hall. Once glance below at the competition should tell you that wouldn't have cut it. The number nearly disappeared when budding star sophomore end Edgar Madsen suddenly died of pneumonia in 1924:

image

…and the Daily suggested his number be retired.

What did put them over the top was Bill Hewitt, an NFL hall of famer, whose number 56 was retired by the Chicago Bears when he left as the last NFL player to refuse to wear a helmet. He played end and fullback for Michigan and was the MVP of the '31 team that had Maynard Morrison, Charles Bernard, Harry Newman, Ted Petoskey, and a Wistert on it.

After Hewitt, reserve end Chester Stabovitz (name team!) then 1937-'38 starter Vincent Valek wore it.

James Hall burst into opponents' backfields by earning a starting job as a true sophomore in 1997. As with Woodley, they'd call Hall an "RLB" as the weakside end of Michigan's base 4-3 Under; Hall went on to a productive NFL career as an undersized yet unblockable edge rusher. As for Woodley, here's an insane and grainy video that includes videogame clips until Wolverine Historian makes us a better one:

Other contenders:
#86 John Anderson (1975-'77), Martin Davis (1990-'92), Gene Knutson (1952-'53), Gary Prahst (1957-'58), Oswald Clark (1948-'50), Bob Brown (1962), Steve Thibert (1985-'87) Donald Eeaton (1972-'73)
#47: Bennie Oosterbaan, Jake Ryan
#81: Glen Steele (1994-'97) the half of the time they weren't in an under, Dan Jilek (1974-'75), Mike Rotunno (1954-'55), John Halstead (1958-'59), Gene Topp (1951-'53), John Henderson (1963), Bob Boshoven (1957)
#99: Robert Thompson (1979-'82), Dominic Tedesco (1975-'77), Pierre Woods (2002-'05), Jake Frysinger (2001)
#88: Elmer Madar (1942-'46), Craig Roh (2009-'12), Harry Allis (1948-'50) Ron Kocan (1962), Bill Freehan (1960), Bob Rennebohm (1943)
#91: Matt Dyson (1991-'93), Tom Seabron (1976-'78), Walt Williamson (1971-'73), Rondell Biggs (2004-'06), Phil Seymour (1970), David Ray (1950-'51)
#55: Brandon Graham (2006-'09), Dale Keitz (1977-'78), Jibreel Black (2010-'11), Rasheed Simmons (1994-'96), and bits from Gannon Dudlar, Dhani Jones and Cecil Pryor
#90: Tim Jamison (2007-'08), Jake Ryan (2011), Michael Keller (1969), Juaquin Feazell (1996-'98)
#6: Paul Goebel as a junior (1921—he wore #1 in his All-American year), Victor Hobson (1999-2002), David Bowens (1995-'96), Prescott Burgess (played SAM in 2005)

Enough of these:
#95: That one Alain Kashama game is carrying this alone. Whiffs including Patrick Kratus, Chris Rock and Bob Rosema
#93: Three starts by soph and jr Mike Lemirade in the '80s are the contributions from 20 seasons of edge guys wearing this, most recently Chris Rodgers and Lawrence Marshall (who'll contribute at DT this year if he ever does)

Bring it back:
#6: The four guys above are the only edge players to wear it, and single digits are cool.

-----------------------------------------------

Middle Linebacker: #37

Jarrett Irons (1993-'96), Erick Anderson (1988-'91), Tony Rio (1957-'59), Tom Kee (1972), Chris Graham (2005-'07), Zach Kaufman (2000-'03), Mel Anthony (1963), and Jake Ryan as a redshirting freshman

image

I'm sorry, but if you were expecting another number to stand for Michigan middle linebackers you shouldn't have sent a guy born in 1979 to make the picks. I'm all about the doom squirrel archetype that Larry Foote and Ian Gold pioneered after, but there was something about a thumpin' neck-rolled bad-ass screaming up the middle and ending a guy that shaped my early understanding for good defense, and that's all thanks to Mr. Anderson and Mr. Irons. Anderson doesn't have a highlight reel but start The Game of 1991 at 12:00 and start counting how often 37 is around the ball.

With Anderson still fresh in memory, Irons came up, and starting tackling everything in sight. He was named captain his junior year in 1995 and by the end of 1996 he led Michigan in career tackles. I might have written in my high school paper that Sam Sword should switch to 37 in '97 since 93 is a weird number for a linebacker.

Here are all the MLBs, WLBs, plus fullbacks (the original linebackers), centers (the original middle linebackers), and a handful of 5-3 era right guards. Tony Rio, who also played some offense but let Gene Sisinyak take most of those snaps, lost most of his junior year in '58 for leading gambling ring. Rio pled to a misdemeanor and came back to captain the '59 team, when his famous luck led to a nine fumble recoveries.

Mel Anthony switched to full-time offense in 1963 when the NCAA eased the 1952 platooning restrictions but he was a good linebacker before that. Tom Kee was a 2nd team All-American to both the AP and UPI in 1972 playing weakside linebacker in Bo's 5-2 defense that gave up just 57 points all year and would have finished unbeaten but for a legendary referee jobbing in Columbus.

More recently we've had Chris Graham, who is not related to Brandon and should definitely not be lined up on a slot receiver, but was a decent and longtime starter. Zach Kaufman too was rather unheralded for mostly okay play, but his reputation was salvaged by the drop-off in WLB play after he was injured in 2002.

Other contenders:
#48: President Gerald R. Ford (1932-'34), Desmond Morgan (2012-'14), Jack Weisenburger (1946-'47), Dave Dobreff (1990-'93)
#33 Mike Taylor (1970-'71), Don Lund (1942-'44), Carl Russ (1973-'74), Wayne Sparkman (1962-'63), Tom Peterson (1947-'48), James Byers (1957), Marrell Evans (2008)
#57: Maynard Morrison (1929-'31), Tim Anderson (1983-'84), James Dickey (1958), Chris Singletary (1997-'98)
#53: Dick O'Shaughnessy (1951-'53), Jerry Goebel (1955-'57), Mel Owens (1977-'79), Thomas Cecchini (1963-'65), Robert Erben (1948-'49)
#2: Jack Blott (1923), Ernie Vick (1921), Cedric Smith (1915-'16), and future M coach Elton Wieman (1917)

Enough of these:
#51: With respect to Jerry Smith, lately this has been Eric Brackins, Max Pollack, Michael Ferns, and walk-ons. Shoulda stopped at John Duerr

Bring it back:
#93. The other positions aren't doing anything with it, and Sword!

-----------------------------------------------

Safeties & Hybrids: #25

Tom Curtis (1967-'69), Ernest Shazor (2002-'04), Dymonte Thomas (2014-'16)

image

[Right: Fuller]

This position has given me trouble every edition of this series because of the long safety drought in the 2000s. The great old ones weren't a lot of help either because they often stashed some fast guy who couldn't hit back there to prevent the offense from punting when it wasn't their turn (this was a problem until the 1960s). Around the time Bo arrived teams began moving their fullback into a position very similar to the Viper in Don Brown's defense, and Bo changed the term to "Wolfman". Eventually the wolfman or whatever other cool name you could come up with became the strong safety. I counted those and modern Vipers.

Choosing a number was tough: the leaders all have two All-American seasons plus a decent player then a drop-off. For #3 I told myself I would count Marlin's cornerback work there—his year at safety was good but injured after six games. But Tripp Welborne had two A-A seasons in A-squared and Stevie Brown was good as a senior at Spur—Shonte Peoples played on some good defenses but I mostly recall him getting beat. I had another out with #35, with two great safeties from Bo's early years. But Chuck Winters as 3rd guy over Dymonte or even Stevie? Nuh.

So let's finally acknowledge Mr. Ernest Shazor's Thorpe season, which gets dogged for being too hitty and not enough coveragey but it was majorly hitty. And 'twas that hitty that saved the season:

Let's also acknowledge that Tom Curtis is probably the best safety in Michigan history (Dave Brown '72-'74 is the competition). Arriving as a quarterback Curtis moved to safety before his sophomore season and started 8 games as a sophomore, setting Michigan's single-game INT record with three against Illinois—he had 7 that year. He wasn't done, picking off 10 balls in '68, and 8 more in 1969. Never actually that fast, Curtis nevertheless dominated by reading the offense. His 25 interceptions in the pre-let's-pass-a-lot era remain a school record.

Dymonte Thomas was good, never exceptional, splitting time at strong safety with Delano Hill in 2015 then starting at free safety for the even better 2016 defense after a few underclass years when we wondered if he might be moved to receiver. Dymonte was the best at corralling slippery dudes in open space, a useful skill in a Big Ten era with Saquon Barkley, Ezekiel Elliott, J.T. Barrett, Curtis Samuel, Akrum Wadley, Lorenzo Harrison and Ty Johnson in it.

Other contenders:
#3: Tripp Welborne (1988-'90), Marlin Jackson (part of 2003), Shonte Peoples (1992-'93), Stevie Brown (2007-'09), Marvin Robinson (2010-'12)

#19: Willis Barringer is the only 19 to start, and he only started so much (17 games!) because of Angry Michigan Safety-Hating God.

Bring it back:
#85: Michigan was later than most schools to go to a pair of safeties after offenses began using split ends as receivers in the early 1950s because Lowell Perry, one of those fancy new receivers himself, could cover ground like a modern NFL free safety.

Cornerback: #3

Marlin Jackson (2002, '04), John Maulbetsch (1915-'16), Todd Howard (1999-'02), Marion Body (1980-'82)

The other reason I didn't use 3 above because we've got three All-American seasons from two guys, and a lot of starts from the backup cast. Historically halfbacks played something closer to what a safety does today—it wasn't until the 1960s that platoon football created a need for guys who can cover a crazy receiving target on his own.

We'll start with the guy you haven't met a bunch of times, because he's more local. John "Maulie" Maulbetsch grew up in Ann Arbor (Pioneer), but transferred to Michigan at 21 after a year at Adrian College, where Maulie beat up on Yost's freshman squad. Yost called him "Another Willie Heston" which would be like someone using the Barry Sanders tag today. In his first year playing for Michigan Malbetsch was nicknamed the "German Bullet" or the "Human Bullet" because dude was known to scream down from his halfback (think of a Cover 2 safety) position into whatever gap was being tried. He won national notoriety by nearly beating Harvard singlehandedly in 1914 (his All-American season), and was blamed for Harvard canceling the rematch in Ann Arbor in 1915. They needn't have bothered: Maulbetsch was out with appendicitis that year and came back not quite himself. But he recovered to captain the 1916 team. Tiny even for his day he was nicknamed the "Featherweight Fullback" as a pro, and is a member of the College Football Hall of Fame. Michigan gives out the John Maulbetsch Award to their favorite freshman every year. That has a nickname too.

The 2002 recipient of the Maulbetsch Award was Marlin Jackson, who switched to Maulie the Human Bullet German Bullet Featherweight Fullback Another Willie Heston's number after his (Marlin's) freshman season. That freshman season was promising but didn't say anything about an All-American sophomore performance, when he wracked up PBUs and tackles. In 2003 Marlin tried to solve that nagging free safety problem himself, then turned down the NFL for another All-American senior season when he did as much as Braylon to send a freshman-quarterbacked team to the Rose Bowl. Marlin's 2002 game against Washington star receiver Reggie Williams is one of the greatest single-game performances in Michigan history. Marlin is also well known to this here site because he went on to found the Fight For Life Foundation, a super-modern, model youth services charity that we'd believe in strongly even if it wasn't created by one of the greatest players in Michigan football history.

I didn't leave much room to talk about Todd Howard, who's joined us for a number of events, mostly in Chicago, since he now coaches in his native(ish*) Bolingbrook. In his playing days Todd was the short cornerback we complained about less because James Whitley was a bigger issue, but spoiled as we were by Woodson, we couldn't appreciate a solid undersized guy who could tackle. Howard would start 34 games for Michigan from 1999-'01, when he played opposite Mr. Jackson above.

* (Todd grew in Southfield, same grade, different elementaries, just across Telegraph from me, but we both moved away before middle school)

We were too young to remember Marion Body who was recruited by Jack Harbaugh and ended up being coached by Harbaugh's replacement Lloyd Carr. Body was inserted as the fist dimeback in the history of football in 1980 as part of Michigan's plan to stop Purdue's potent shotgun passing attack; Body collected one of four interceptions thrown that day by up-to-then Heisman frontrunner Mark Herrmann. Body also picked off two against Notre Dame that year, but is best known for getting called for pass interference to set up ND's winning kick. He started most of '81 and '82 at cornerback, but they learned to stay away from Body's field side after '80. Or the dance he did after they stuffed Illinois:

Other contenders:
#18: Bump Elliott (1947), Jim Pickens (1975-'76), Blake Countess (2011-'13), Leo Koceski (1948-'49), Ralph Chubb (1946), James Rogers (2010)
#16: Mike Jolly (1977-'79), Paul White (1941-'43, '46), Fred Julian (1957-'59), Ed Shannon (1954-'56), Ralph Chubb (1944), Willie Heston, Jr. (1930)

Enough of these:
#5: James "Future Star of the XFL" Whitley, Courtney Avery, Coleman Wallace who played as turned around as his name, and Charles Stewart. As long as we count Peppers at safety (I do).

Bring it back:
#46: Used to be a big number for Michigan halfbacks.

-----------------------------------------------

Special Teams: #19

Remy Hamilton Mike Gillette, Bob Bergeron, Carl Ward, Ronald Bellamy

image

Three of Michigan's greatest kickers all wore the same number so I had to go with this one over 6, but check out 6 after.

Bob Bergeron was the tiny guy with a huge leg. A walk-on, Bergeron held plackekicking duties for 1983 and '84, going 28/32, earning one all-conference decision and, that Iowa game, and a pizza. After Bergeron Mike Gilette, an all-state quarterback with MAC offers to play under center, took the same number and became the leading scorer in Michigan history thanks to 53 FGs, 130 XPs, and that touchdown—also his 56-yarder is the longest by a Michigan kicker. Gillette was also a strong punter, averaging 40 yards as the team's punter in 1988. Remy Hamilton, who kicked from 1993 to 1996, holds most of the volume Michigan records: five in game, 30 in a season, 63 in a career, 82 attempts. His 4-4 performance vs Notre Dame in 1994 is among the best outings for a Michigan kicker, even if he couldn't tackle Mike Miller.

Carl Ward was a backup running back and all-around offensive weapon who helped Michigan get back to the Rose Bowl in 1964. Naturally he was the kick returner for 1964-'66 (more on the punt returner in a moment). Ron Bellamy was Michigan's primary punt returner in 2000, averaging 11 yards per return though he only ever broke one long (against Rice). He was also a fixture on kickoff and punt units since he got down the field faster than anyone else on the team.

Other contenders:

#6: KR Tyrone Wheatley, PK Ali Haji-Sheikh, PR David Brown (3 punt return TDs from 1972-'74), PK Peter Elezovic, KOS Troy Nienberg (2001-'02, also wore 10)
#3: Ross Ryan, Robert Wood (1973-'76), Brandon Kornblue (1996-'97), Marlin Jackson (his only punt return was the Wisconsin TD), Tripp Welbourne, Quinn Nordin, Brad Robbins
#1: Six return TDs between Derrick Alexander (4) and Anthony Carter (2)
#38: Garrett Rivas (2003-'06), JD Carlson (1989-'91), Erik Lovell (1993-'94), Jason Vinson (1995-'98)

Enough of these:

#34: Since Brabbs it's been Gingell, the scholarship guy who was so bad it doomed the Rodriguez years to walk-ons, and Gibbons, who was a good kicker who should have been removed from the team his redshirt season. There's also Justin Fargas who couldn't catch a kickoff. Retire it for Brabbs.

Bring it back:

#12: For now (Chris Evans be comin'), the last player to wear #12 at Michigan for an entire career remains cornerback/gunner Brandon Williams (1999-'02), who collected that muffed punt return against Wisconsin and delightfully didn't know he couldn't run it in. B-Will, one of the fastest players in Michigan history, is probably the best gunner we've ever had. George Hoey wore it in the mid-'60s and averaged 17 yards per punt return in 31 returns, with 1 TD. Peppers, for reference, averaged 13.1 yards, and Derrick Alexander was at 12.7 despite 4 TDs. Blake O'Neill had that bad thing but until then it was the best game by a punter in Michigan history. Also in '89 there was a kicker named Gulam Khan, which is just a perfect setup for a kicker at a nerd school. More 12's on special teams.

The All-Numbers Team

  • QB: #7, for Leach, Henson, Henne

Nope. You need more than one dude there or else this is just a silly "Let's name the best player at each position" exercise and thus boring. The only corners or halfbacks (in the single platoon era) to wear 2 were Woodson and one year of Blake Countess that wasn't his best year. JT Turner rode pine.

When does 2 get retired? Howards was given a legends patch in 2011 (20 years after his college career ended). Althought the official retirement came in 2015 with the end of the legends program.

Coming up on 21 years since Woodson.

          Người phụ nữ Ấn Độ giúp nhân đôi doanh thu Pepsi sắp từ chức      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

CEO Indra Nooyi, 62 tuổi, hôm 6/8 thông báo sẽ từ chức, sau 24 năm gắn bó với Pepsi và 12 năm ngồi ghế điều hành.

Nằm trong số rất ít nữ giới dẫn dắt một tập đoàn tầm cỡ thế giới, mỗi bước đi của bà luôn nhận nhiều nghi hơn so với những đồng cấp nam. Tuy nhiên, dấu ấn ảnh hưởng của người phụ nữ này lên sự lớn mạnh của PepsiCo suốt hơn một thập kỷ qua rất rõ rệt.

Bà có công lớn khi tăng sự hiện diện của hãng trên thị trường quốc tế cũng như chuyển đổi cơ cấu thực phẩm và đồ uống của họ theo hướng lành mạnh.

Nữ CEO đưa doanh thu PepsiCo tăng gần gấp đôi kể từ khi điều hành năm 2006. Ảnh: AP.

Indra Krishnamurthy Nooyi sinh năm 1955 tại thành phố 7 triệu dân Chennai, miền Nam Ấn Độ. Thời trẻ, Nooyi chơi trong ban nhạc rock và là một đứa con có thiên hướng nổi loạn trong gia đình thuộc tuýp truyền thống.

Cá tính này vẫn luôn là một phần nằm trong con người Nooyi. san sẻ với Harvard Business Review năm 2015, bà nói: "Tôi phần nào vẫn là con người mà luôn cảm thấy chúng ta không thể ngồi yên. Hàng sáng, bạn cần thức dậy với nỗi sợ thế giới đang đổi thay, và sự quả quyết rằng để thắng lợi nó, mình phải thay đổi nhanh hơn và nhanh trí hơn những người khác".

21 tuổi, người đàn bà này đã chinh phục tấm bằng cử nhân Đại học Madras Christian và MBA của Viện Quản lý Ấn Độ Calcutta. Đây là hai trường đại học danh giá nhất nhà nước Nam Á.

Làm việc cho tập đoàn Johnson & Johnson trong vài năm sau đó, Nooyi chuyển hướng tu nghiệp tại trường Quản lý Yale ở Mỹ từ năm 1978. Mẹ bà hầu như chơi cho phép con gái đến Yale, dù nhận khoản tương trợ tài chính lớn, chỉ bởi Nooyi mới 22 và chưa lấy chồng.

rút cuộc, Nooyi kết hôn ở tuổi 25 với Raj K. Nooyi, người về sau thành chủ toạ hãng phần mềm Amsoft Systems. Họ hiện có với nhau hai con gái và định cư ở thị trấn phong túc Greenwich, bang Connecticut, Mỹ.

CEO Pepsico từng san sớt hồi năm 2007 rằng bà liên tiếp phải giữ thăng bằng giữa các vai trò làm mẹ, vợ và một lãnh đạo doanh nghiệp. Bà nói: "Đó là thử thách hàng ngày. Có những ngày tôi phải có mặt ở trường học của các con. Tôi rứa tham dự, dù không hàng tháng như trông mong bình thường dành cho một bà mẹ. Tôi muốn đến xem con gái chơi bóng rổ. thi bang a2 chẳng thể trận nào cũng dự nhưng tôi sẽ đến một đôi buổi".

Những năm 20-30 tuổi, người đàn bà gốc Ấn giữ vị trí hoạch định chiến lược lần lượt tại các tập đoàn Boston Consulting Group, Motorola và Công ty robot ABB.

Năm 1994, l úc 39 tuổi, bà Nooyi nhận lời đề nghị chiêu mộ từ General Electric và PepsiCo. Với việc PepsiCo mời về làm chiến lược gia trưởng cho họ, bà bắt đầu hành trình tại tập đoàn thực phẩm và đồ uống quen thuộc trên toàn cầu này.

Một trong những quyết định sớm và gây tranh cãi nhất của bà Nooyi là thuyết phục Pepsi bỏ mảng nhà hàng, bao gồm cả những chuỗi ăn nhanh như Pizza Hut hay Taco Bell.

Tại PepsiCo, bà Nooyi tuần tự trở thành giám đốc tài chính năm 2000, chủ toạ năm 2001 và sau cùng chủ toạ hội đồng quản trị kiêm CEO vào năm 2006.

Hãng đồ uống và thực phẩm kinh dinh phát đạt thập niên 1990 và những năm đầu 2000. Tuy nhiên, công ty chững lại sau đó, vừa lúc bà Nooyi tiếp quản vị trí điều hành năm 2006. nên chi nữ CEO bấy giờ phải đối mặt quyết định theo đuổi thành công ngắn hay dài hạn . Bà kể: "Tôi đã có thể chạy nước rút, cắt giảm tổn phí, đạt lợi nhuận cao trong vài năm rồi nói từ giã. Nhưng làm vậy chẳng đem lại kết quả lâu dài".

Một trong những đột phá bà Nooyi đem lại là tập kết hơn vào mẫu mã. Bà khích đi thị trường hàng tuần để quan sát các sản phẩm của PepsiCo trông ra sao trên giá.

Một nội dung quan trọng khác trong chiến lược lâu dài của nữ CEO là ưu tiên các sản phẩm lành mạnh. Ban đầu tuyển lựa này khiến doanh thu quý của PepsiCo giảm và giới phân tách hiềm nghi năng lực điều hành của Nooyi.

Trong nhiều năm, bà đối mặt những lời chế giễu như: "Tại sao lại là bà hả mẹ Teresa? Sao phải cố chuyển sang bán những thứ lành mạnh làm gì?". Nhưng người phụ nữ này nom: "Bởi đó sẽ là xu hướng của thị trường. Đó là đường chúng ta phải đi".

Là phụ nữ hiếm hoi trong giới lãnh đạo tập đoàn khổng lồ, bà Nooyi thường vấp phải nhiều hoài nghi. Ảnh: Bussiness Insider.

Là phụ nữ hiếm hoi trong giới lãnh đạo tập đoàn đồ sộ, bà Nooyi thường vấp phải nhiều hiềm nghi. Ảnh: Bussiness Insider.

Từ năm 2016, những kết quả tài chính quý của PepsiCo bắt đầu vượt trông chờ. Kể từ khi điều hành, bà Nooyi đưa doanh thu PepsiCo tăng gần gấp đôi, đạt con số 63,5 tỷ USD năm ngoái. Góp một nửa trong đó là các sản phẩm đồ uống và snack lành mạnh hơn. Riêng nữ lãnh đạo gốc Ấn thu nhập 31 triệu USD trong năm 2017.

Sau 24 năm cống hiến cho Pepsi và 12 năm điều hành, bà Nooyi thông báo rời ghế CEO trong tháng 10. Trong tuyên bố của mình, bà phát biểu: "Dẫn dắt PepsiCo là một vinh hạnh lớn của thế cục tôi. Tôi kiêu hãnh những gì chúng tôi đã làm hơn 12 năm qua để thúc đẩy quyền lợi của không chỉ cổ đông, mà hết thảy những ai liên đái trong cộng đồng chúng tôi phục vụ".

Người đàn bà 62 tuổi san sẻ với Bloomberg dự kiến dành cho mình một quãng nghỉ ngơi, nhưng không quá dài. Bà muốn viện trợ những thiên tài nữ để có ngôn ngữ mạnh hơn trong giới lãnh đạo cấp cao. Bà nói: "Công việc của tôi chỉ thực thụ bắt đầu khi rời PepsiCo, vì giờ mới có thể bắt tay làm những việc mà khi ngồi ghế CEO gặp rào cản".

Three days before Garba Bakunawa traveled from Nigeria to Harvard for a nearly month-long course on global healthcare delivery, an electrical injury with the potential to imperil his ability to practice surgery knocked him unconscious. Heavy rains had flooded parts of his community in northeast Nigeria and damaged the local power provider. Abnormal voltage flares were causing problems throughout the area.

He awoke on June 29 to the furious chirp of wires sparking in the ceiling of his house. Telling his family to remain behind him, Bakunawa reached for the control box in the house to cut the power—and everything went black.

“I remember that I made an effort to touch it, but I can’t remember what happened next,” he said. “I just remember that I woke up on the way to the hospital and my brother was telling me that I was electrocuted.” By his account, he was luckier than most. The electrical problems injured many in his community, and even killed a few people. “At least I was healthy enough to walk around,” he said. After 12 hours in the hospital, he left on a regimen of antibiotics and with his right arm covered in a large cast. The shock had heavily charred the skin of his hand. It was not clear if he would recover well enough to practice again.

Bakunawa was due in Cambridge the following week for the start of the 2018 Global Health Delivery Intensive (GHDI), a three-week program jointly offered by the School of Public Health (HSPH), the Medical School (HMS), and Brigham and Women’s Hospital that convenes mid-career health professionals from across the globe for lessons about improving access to key health treatments. Voted an outstanding member of his hospital’s staff, Bakunawa received funding to attend the program and had already booked his ticket to Boston before his injury. His family urged him to try to reschedule. He would not be swayed.

In Boston, he joined a 55-member cohort of summer student learners representing 27 countries and a wide array of professional backgrounds, including in nonprofit leadership, clinical care, and community health work. More than half of that cohort labors in “resource poor settings” and a plurality of program participants are direct patient care providers, according to demographic data gathered by the program’s leaders. 

While Harvard does not provide financial assistance for the program, almost 90 percent of this year’s cohort received financial support from outside sources such as scholarship or training programs, or from employers, to cover the program’s $8,000 tuition fee. Sources of support came from a wide array of local and international organizations such as Massachusetts General Hospital and the Center for Health Care Delivery in Dubai (which funds ten full and ten partial scholarships to GHDI). 

“Some of the students are, of course, incredible themselves,” Davin Eurich, the program’s coordinator, added, “and will receive funding from the World Health Organization or their own ministries of health. It’s a work of art to see the funding work out.”  

Thinking Globally

In some ways, Bakunawa’s experience navigating dramatically different care infrastructure in Nigeria and the United States underscores the mission of the GHDI: to provide healthcare professionals with the know-how to standardize levels of care globally.

GHDI grew out of a larger effort launched nearly 11 years ago (the Global Health Delivery Project, GHDP), which sought to standardize a “lexicon” that healthcare professionals could apply to their respective regional contexts, said GHDI program director Rebecca Weintraub in an interview  (she is assistant professor of global health and social medicine at HMS). Eleven years ago, she said, her team set out to generate “what we viewed as novel public goods”—in this case, resources about best practices for global health professionals, including case studies similar to those created at the Business School, with step-by-step descriptions of how health professionals tackled issues in their regions, designed to help alleviate the disparities in levels of care and infrastructure that exist across the world. 

The GHDP was, according to Weintraub, one of the first of its kind, merging HMS’s clinical know-how with HSPH’s population-level, solutions-based frameworks: “It sounds not-so-novel now, but at the time the intersection between clinical and public health was relatively new, and when you think about it, Harvard Medical School and the School of Public Health are separate entities.” 

Harvard’s focus on global health is wide-ranging and continues to expand: it has launched more than 120 global-health related offerings, from Business School executive-education leadership programs to an undergraduate secondary field that focuses on interdisciplinary study of healthcare, policy, and science. 

GHDI, while not a degree- or certificate-granting program, is just as intensive as most other HMS courses. During their time in residence, students enroll in three courses—“Epidemiological Methods for Global Health,” “Introduction to Global Healthcare Delivery,” and “Management Practices in Healthcare Delivery”—which are meant to provide an interdisciplinary introduction to how health professionals tackle public health issues that recur worldwide. A combination of Harvard professors (some from HMS, HSPH, and the Kennedy School) and guest lecturers who work in healthcare teach the courses, which typically run 2 hours per session.

One GHDI case study this year examined a mother of three in rural Kenya whose youngest son developed a fever. A community health worker diagnosed him with malaria. The mother (named Esther in the study) could not find the prescribed antimalarials and mosquito netting for her children at the village drugstore, and she couldn’t get the materials from neighboring villages because their pharmacies were either out of stock or charged exorbitant fees. The case served as the starting point for a discussion on best practices for “last-mile logistics,” or how supply chains deliver their products to patients. The session pushed students to consider the inefficiencies at every step of the delivery process, from communication errors or demand fluctuations, that might lead to stock-outs during a crucial time of need. 

Other cases tackled issues such as the role of diplomacy in healthcare, community-based solutions to healthcare, and financing.

In one wide-ranging session of the management-practices course, Kolokotrones University Professor of global health and social medicinePaul Farmer—who chairs the eponymous department and co-founded the nonprofit Partners In Health—spoke at length about the challenges facing healthcare professionals: distrust of nonprofit organizations in places like Haiti (where Farmer and Partners have long been active); the need to understand historical context when planning broad care efforts; and continuing debates over how to define “equity” and “universality” in care. He stressed the importance of addressing such issues explicitly. “When you impoverish a discussion about healthcare for decades, a lot of not talking about it, I tend to believe any discussion of universality is a good one,” Farmer said. He put current discussions about the universality of healthcare into the context of American upheavals such as the abolitionist and civil-rights movements.  

The theme of equity in healthcare emerged in many of the program’s sessions, Weintraub emphasized. “In many ways, our students come to the program with that sense. Equity is already a part of their professional agenda, but they come here looking for ways to operationalize it.”

A Vast Network 

Though coursework is a major component of the experience of the GHDI, program coordinator Davin Eurich said networking and opportunities for peer-to-peer learning bolster the graduates’ experiences.

“Those that were willing to share their vulnerability and hardships [in ways] that others in the class could really relate to...is what really builds this network,” she said. “The students are coming and meeting different inspiration points. Some are moving on...to other programs at Harvard. Others are leveraging GHDI in numerous other ways back home.”

GHDI has graduated 350 students from 60 countries so far. Many have returned to work in the ministries of health of their respective countries or to aid nonprofits in region-specific work, while others return to local hospitals to deploy the new knowledge they have acquired.

Bakunawa will return with that—and more. O[2] ne day, during a lecture in the beginning of the program, Bakunawa raised his hand to answer a question, and HMS professor and GHDI co-director Joseph Rhatigan noticed the injury to his hand for the first time. 

“That day he sent me a message saying there was a doctor, a hand surgeon, who would like to review me, and he was able to link me with a plastic surgeon,” Bakunawa said. “Just like a family, they treated me very well.” Faculty from the program, HMS instructors, and physicians at Brigham worked to provide Bakunawa with surgery free of charge, including skin grafting to the affected areas on his hand and the removal of one of his fingers, which had been badly damaged.

“I called my wife and my family and I told them what was happening, and that they’re doing it for free. I didn’t have the money to do it here, and this was at one of the best hospitals globally,” he said. “I was so happy with the consideration, with the sympathy I received from my colleagues.” 

The program and the care he received from classmates has inspired him, demonstrating in word and deed that anything is possible. And that has become a mantra. “One of our facilitators here, Rebecca [Weintraub], she says that instead of saying ‘no,’ just say ‘it’s possible.”  

At the graduation ceremony on the last day of the program, the students heard from Stephen Kahn, president of the Abundance Foundation, an organization that helps train nonprofit leaders who work on the intersection of health, arts, and education. Kahn graduated with the first cohort of the program, and the foundation he now heads has supported Partners In Health in the past, and according to Eurich, provides financial support to GHDI that helps the program’s leaders improve the course offerings each year. 

In his keynote remarks, Kahn spoke of grappling with issues of scarce resources during an experience working in hospital in Zambia before attending GHDI. Without the necessary HIV diagnostic technology, he said he “had to guessat which of my languishing patients were dying of AIDS.” 

“I thumbed through my Merck manual, hoping the pages would answer the endless cascade of questions I had. All I had was my clinical vigilance,” he said. 

Kahn called GHDI a “profound turning point” for him, and stressed that the program’s emphasis on providing political and historical context for its cases helped deepen his understanding of how to address public-health crises. Moreover, he emphasized that relying on the network of GHDI graduates has strengthened his work—by providing professional advice and by helping him weather the toughest moments of being a healthcare provider.

“I’m standing shoulder to shoulder with you in this work to bring equity and excellence in healthcare,” Kahn told the graduates. “It’s so easy to get conditioned to scarcity. The global health delivery course is an antidote to that mindset.”

Although it can be impossible to plan in advance for a medical emergency, research published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences suggests that patients—especially women—who receive care from a medical professional of the same gender have a significantly higher chance of survival.

Laura Huang, associate professor at Harvard Business School, Brad Greenwood of the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, and Seth Carnahan of Washington University in St. Louis share a common research interest in examining bias and disadvantage. “I’ve looked at [gender bias] a lot in terms of entrepreneurship and who gets venture-capital financing,” Huang said. “I’ve also looked at it in terms of hiring and promotion decisions within organizations.” Given how pervasive gender bias is in the workforce, the researchers felt compelled to apply this lens to healthcare, a context in which they believed there should be absolutely no bias or discrimination. “If you are somebody who has a heart attack and you go to the ER, the doctor’s only job is to save your life. It shouldn’t matter who you are,” Huang said. “The only outcome is that either your life is saved or not saved. It’s not like work where there are questions like, ‘Oh is this person capable of working well on our team? Or, are they qualified for this promotion?’”

Huang’s research is far from the first to indicate that implicit bias plays a negative role in healthcare. A huge body of research spanning decades has found that, among other outcomes, racial and ethnic minorities experience significantly higher mortality rates from chronic illnesses for reasons other than access to care or early intervention. There is also growing evidence that socioeconomic background plays a critical role in premature mortality rates in cities like Boston.

Despite these indications, anyone who comes into the ER with a heart attack has an 11.9 percent baseline rate of not surviving. Although the findings show that gender concordance—whether a patient is being treated by a doctor of the same gender––matters for both men and women (if a patient is seen by a physician who is of the same gender, her or his probability of death is reduced by 5.4 percent relative to the baseline mortality rate the statistics paint a much more dire picture for women. Female patients who are treated by male physicians are 12 percent more likely to die of a heart attack than an average patient: their absolute chance of dying is 13.4 percent.

“That’s pretty significant, when you really think about it,” said Huang. “You have a 5.4 percent increased chance of living, relative to the baseline mortality rate, if you’re seen by a physician of your gender.” Another way to interpret the findings is that females who are treated by a male doctor see an increased absolute risk of dying by about 1.5 percent. “This means that one out of every 66 women is suffering because they saw a male physician,” she said.

The researchers were careful to control for as many variables as possible, including patients’ medical history and which schools attending physicians attended. Huang said that they were especially mindful of existing research that suggests women are less likely to seek medical care early on and are also generally less likely to report pain levels. “If the implication was purely that women are harder to treat, then we should find that women who come in to the hospital with heart attacks have a lower chance of survival across all doctors. If they’re waiting longer to be seen, and that’s driving a higher percentage chance of dying, then that should hold true regardless of their doctor’s gender—it didn’t.”

 While the research doesn’t point to one overarching reason why gender concordance plays this role in cardiac-arrest survival rates, Huang said that one strong hypothesis involves communication norms. “Perhaps there’s something implicit that’s happening where male physicians are not picking up on something tacit,” she said. The researchers found that when male physicians develop a history of treating more women or when they have more female colleagues, the negative effects (the higher mortality rates for women) are mitigated. “Because the effect is attenuated when these doctors have more women around them, this suggests there’s something to do with a communication mechanism or attention to detail,” she said.

Ultimately, the researchers aim to draw more attention to the implications of gender bias. “We see [bias] happening in other contexts, and in the medical arena we’re seeing the workplace being mirrored. We seeing glass ceilings in workplaces and in entrepreneurship and here, this is a glass ceiling on life.”

          Simmons' 76ers to open NBA season      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Philadelphia 76ers star Ben Simmons will clash with Aron Baynes and the Boston Celtics to open the upcoming NBA season.
          Patriots training camp: Tom Brady sees more work Wednesday      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

FOXBORO — The Patriots were in full pads for Wednesday's practice, an uncharacteristic move on the day before a game.

And Tom Brady saw more work than he has in recent sessions, leading the huddle in the 11-on-11 drills at the beginning of the practice.

The skies opened midway through the afternoon, and rookie quarterback Danny Etling had to deal with torrential downpours over the final half-hour or so.

Let's recap the Patriots' 11th practice of the summer...

ATTENDANCE

Absent: RB Sony Michel (fifth straight missed practice), OT Marcus Cannon (fifth straight missed practice), LB Harvey Langi (second straight missed practice), OL Brian Schwenke (first missed practice)

Limited: WR Matthew Slater, S Nate Ebner, CB Jonathan Jones, CB Cyrus Jones, DE Trey Flowers, RB Rex Burkhead (left for lower field midway through practice), WR Kenny Britt, OL Jason King

NOTES

**With DE Trey Flowers on the lower field for conditioning/rehab, second-year DE Derek Rivers took reps opposite Deatrich Wise.

**As most of the team engaged in 11-on-11s, CB Cyrus Jones fielded punts on the adjacent field. CB Jonathan Jones and S Nate Ebner practiced their punt coverage as Jones caught the ball.

With Julian Edelman suspended four games and Danny Amendola in Miami, the punt returner position appears to be up for grabs. Jones, who was a dynamic returner at the University of Alabama, should be in the mix. He'll need to have a solid preseason to secure the job. Jones struggled with his judgment and ball security as a rookie.

**During kickoff/kick return work, DEs Adrian Clayborn, Deatrich Wise, and Derek Rivers worked on pass-rush technique.

**RB Jeremy Hill was sent to run a lap after a botched hand-off with QB Brian Hoyer.

**WR Eric Decker had a drop on a deep crossing pattern. The ball was thrown by Brady.

**RB Mike Gillislee also committed a drop on a short route over the middle.

**WR Braxton Berrios dropped a pass from QB Danny Etling late in practice. He had a legitimate excuse, though. It was raining sideways.

HIGHLIGHTS

**WR Phillip Dorsett beat CB Eric Rowe deep down the left sideline to haul in a pass from Brady in 11-on-11s.

**DE Deatrich Wise batted down a Brady pass at the line of scrimmage in 11-on-11s.

**Brady connected with TE Rob Gronkowski twice during red zone 11-on-11s.

**QB Danny Etling took the reps late in practice. He hit WR Braxton Berrios for a touchdown on a perfectly-placed ball deep toward the right sideline. CB J.C. Jackson was in coverage.

Etling also found WR Cordarrelle Patterson for a touchdown on a slant route.

S Damarius Travis intercepted Etling on a poorly thrown ball in the end zone.

**P Corey Bojorquez blasted one punt from his own territory, sending returner Riley McCarron back-pedaling to his own goal line to field it.

          Can Pope Francis’ Council of Cardinals still deliver on reform?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Vatican City, Aug 7, 2018 / 04:17 pm (CNA).- By most accounts, Pope Francis was elected with a mandate to reform the Roman Curia- the complex network of dicasteries, commissions, and councils charged with the central administrative work of the Catholic Church- a network that, even to insiders and experts, more often resembles a rabbit warren than a well-defined system of governable offices with clear responsibilities.

From the beginning, there were high expectations for Francis, and widespread belief that he could succeed in reforming the Curia. His informality and disdain for protocol -his ability to think ‘outside the box’- led many to believe that under his leadership, the Curial wilds could be tamed.

One month after his election, he made his first major reform announcement: the creation of the Council of Cardinals, tasked with helping him review and reform the entire governing structure of both the Roman Curia and the universal Church.

Cardinals Maradiaga, Bertello, Errázuriz, Gracias, Marx, Monsengo Pasinya, O’Malley and Pell were informally dubbed the C8, later the C9 (Cardinal Parolin was added to the council when he became Secretary of State). Many saw them, and the enormous task they were assigned, as the embodiment of the kind of global perspective the Church needed for Curial reform.

Five years on, Curial dysfunction has been compounded by international crises, and several members of the C9 are themselves mired in controversy. Rather than bringing an end to scandals in the Curia, Rome’s ongoing problems seem- to some observers- to have gone global.

Embroiled in sexual abuse scandals, shady financial dealings, Curial power-plays, and even full-blown doctrinal disputes – rather than becoming the engine of reform, the C9 has, to some, begun to look like a microcosm of everything going wrong in the Church. Critics have begun to ask if the Council of Cardinals, and the whole of Pope Francis’s reforming agenda, still has the credibility to effect any meaningful change.

For example, clerical sexual abuse has reemerged as a major crisis in the Church, and three of C9 are connected directly to issues surrounding sexual abuse allegations.

Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga, Archbishop of Tegucigalpa and a close confidant of the pope, is the C9’s official coordinator. For months, he has been dogged by allegations concerning his personal finances. At the same time, his auxiliary bishop and his frequent proxy in the governance of his  archdiocese, Juan Pineda, was forced recently to resign, after allegations were made public that he sexually approached seminarians and maintained a string of male lovers – and allegations were also made that those behaviors were widely known in the diocese and by the cardinal.

In response to that scandal, several seminarians from Tegucigalpa wrote an open letter to the bishops of Honduras, detailing a culture of open and active homosexuality in the seminary, with reprisals taken against those who spoke out. Cardinal Maradiaga reportedly denounced the letter’s authors and their motivations for writing it.

Cardinal George Pell, another member of the C9, has had to return to Australia to defend himself against “historic” allegations of sexual abuse. While the trial is ongoing, the cardinal is vigorously defending himself in court against the charges, and questions have been asked about the methods of Victoria police during their investigation.

Furthermore, Cardinal Francisco Javier Errázuriz, a C9 cardinal who was known to be a close friend of the pope before his election, has emerged as a central figure in the disastrous Chilean abuse scandal.

Though he retired as Archbishop of Santiago in 2010, Errázuriz is alleged to have participated in cover-ups of clerical sexual abuse in Chile over a period of years, – including the abuse of notorious Fernando Karadima. It has also been reported that he tried to prevent Juan Carlos Cruz, the most visible and vocal of the Chilean abuse victims, from being appointed as a member of the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Young People.

While five Chilean bishops have had their resignations accepted by Francis, and although Archbishop Theodore McCarrick made history recently by resigning from the College of Cardinals in the wake of his own scandal, Errázuriz remains both a cardinal and a member of the C9.

Meanwhile, Cardinal Sean O’Malley of Boston, whose public intervention was credited with the pope’s change of heart toward Juan Carlos Cruz and the other Chilean victims, is widely considered to be the Church’s most credible voice in speaking out against sexual abuse. Yet the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors, which he leads, has seen the resignation of two high-profile members, both survivors of sexual abuse. One of them, Marie Collins, has spoken often about her frustration that the Commission’s recommendations have not been adopted in the Curia or by national bishops’ conferences.

And O’Malley has faced criticism over reports that in 2015 his office received a letter from a priest detailing allegations against McCarrick, but issued only a staff member’s response, saying that the allegation was not the cardinal’s responsibility to address.

If the president of the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors, a member of the C9, cannot advance binding reforms in the Curia, or even instill a culture of moral responsibility in his own staff, some working in Vatican tell CNA they are left wondering whether meaningful change can be expected to get beyond rhetoric.

Meanwhile, the structural reform of the Curia rumbles on, with Vatican departments being newly created, combined and renamed.

Initially, the most important of these new developments was the creation of the Prefecture for the Economy, led by Cardinal Pell. But even before Pell had to return to Australia, it became clear that bringing transparency and accountability to the Vatican finances was going to be an uphill slog.

In 2016, the Secretariat of State cancelled an external audit of  Curial finances that had been arranged by Pell’s department. The cancellation was ordered by then Archbishop, now Cardinal, Angelo Becciu. It was widely seen as an old-fashioned power-play - neither Becciu nor anyone else at the Secretariat of State technically had the authority to overrule Pell and the Prefecture for the Economy. That Francis was persuaded to back the move, granting it legal authority after-the-fact, was seen a serious blow to financial reform in the Curia.

In June 2017, Pell’s departure for Australia coincided with the dismissal of the first Vatican auditor-general Libero Milone. Milone was fired in dramatic fashion by the Secretariat of State, once again through Angelo Becciu, while being accused of “spying” on the finances of senior officials and facing the threat of prosecution.

Milone maintained that he was fired for being too good at his job, and because he and the reforming work of the Prefecture for the Economy were a direct threat to the Curial old guard. In May of this year, the Vatican quietly announced it had dropped all charges against Milone, but the financial reforms he and Pell were working towards appear to have been effectively dropped as well.

Despite expectations that the C9 would deliver a comprehensive reform of the Roman Curia, the results have been decidedly haphazard. New ‘super-dicasteries,’ like the Dicastery for Laity, Family, and Life, were announced with much fanfare, but thus far, without clear mandates of responsibility and processes for oversight, changes to the names of departments appear to be about as tangible as the reforms have gotten.

Meanwhile, as other departments like the Prefecture for the Economy have had their wings very publicly clipped, the Secretariat of State has seen its influence grow under Cardinal Parolin, to the point where virtually all Vatican business, either formally or informally, comes under its purview.

Ironically, some in Rome claim that Parolin’s greatest coup was arranging for his personal rival and nominal deputy, Angelo Becciu, to be made a cardinal and moved to the far less influential Congregation for the Causes of the Saints.

Parolin has also been known to take a personal interest in high-profile disciplinary cases handled at the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, “checking in” with the CDF to monitor their progress – something unthinkable in previous decades. Outside of Rome, bishops in far corners of the world have been awakened by phone calls from the cardinal weighing in on those local issues of Church governance that may have caught his attention.

A capable diplomat and politician, Parolin has managed to thrive in a Vatican where foundering structural reforms have disrupted traditional spheres of influence and centers of power, and the day-to-day authority he has centralized in his own department is considerable.

If the reformed Curia under Pope Francis has become, perhaps accidentally, ever more administratively centralized, doctrinally the pull is in the other direction.

On a whole range of issues, most notably the pastoral implementation of Pope Francis’ 2016 exhortation Amoris laetitia, bishops’ conferences have begun articulating very different approaches to what were, until recently, universal points of teaching and discipline.

Many of the more radical approaches have begun, or at least been strongly championed in Germany, where the national bishops’ conference is led by Cardinal Reinhard Marx. As de facto head of the German Church, Marx has been closely associated with some highly controversial pastoral policies, most notably the recent proposal to allow protestant spouses of Catholics to receive Communion.

The way in which the German bishops have effectively refused to take no from Rome as an answer is seen to demonstrate how weak the CDF has become, and how little Parolin’s preeminent state department can do, for all its administrative clout, on matters of discipline.

Some have noted that Marx and the German Church can act with a level of autonomy, even impunity, because of their vast financial resources. It is certainly not coincidental that Cardinal Marx also serves as the coordinator for the Vatican’s Council for the Economy.

The Church tax, by which the German government awards the local Church a proportion of the income tax of every citizen who registers as Catholic, has kept German dioceses fabulously wealthy, even as actual church buildings empty at a staggering rate.

The German bishops send millions of euros abroad each year, and with the Church in some parts of the world – and even parts of the Vatican – depending on Teutonic largesse, Marx can publicly muse about theological issues in a way that progressive bishops elsewhere would not dream of doing.

The result of the peculiar Parolin-Marx dynamic is that, under Francis, the Church has inched toward a federalized approach to teaching and discipline, even as administrative power in the Curia becomes more centralized.

It is possible that this situation will be reversed, or at least placed into some more coherent context, if and when the C9 produces a final version of a new governing constitution for the Vatican’s departments. A first draft was apparently presented to the pope in June of this year, but there is no clear indication of when a final document might be made public, let alone brought into force.

In the meantime, Curial politicking and scandal continues to rumble on, and the global sexual abuse crisis shows no signs of meaningful resolution.

Five years ago, the C9 was created to reassure the world that the best leaders from the global Church were hard at work to deliver on the Franciscan promise of reform. Today, with several of its members directly implicated in personal scandals and others publicly maneuvering for their own agendas, the Council of Cardinals seems every bit as tainted as the structures it was tasked to reform.

Famously reliant on people he knows and trusts to work his will, Pope Francis may be fast running out of credible collaborators, and that is likely to create a whole new problem for the universal Church.

Firestone Walker Introduces Terroir Project Collaborations Coming 9/29From Firestone Walker:

Introducing the Terroir Project, an experimental crossover between wine & beer! Join us & @BeavertownBeer, @Garage_Project, @jesterkingbeer, @SierraNevada, @SideProjectBrew & @trilliumbrewing as we debut our Project beers on Sept. 29th in Los Olivos, CA.

Ter'wär // the complete natural environment in which a particular wine is produced, including factors such as the soil, topography & climate.

In 2017, seven breweries passionate about wild ales gathered to discuss the hybrid between beer & wine, noting how our different regions (or terroir) differ based on that particular region's variants. We came up with a concept: what if we each brewed the same beer but allowed our local influences to take shape & see how our beers differ. The Terroir Project was born: an experimental crossover between wine & beer! Each of these beers are wild ales that were made as one-offs for this specific event.

West Ranch is located just 15 minutes from Barrelworks in a vineyard setting on the private Firestone family property & until now has never been open to the public. A portion of the proceeds will be benefitting the Pacific Conservatory Theatre. The Terroir Project is hosted by the folks at our wild ale facility, Barrelworks, where minds are curious & palates are thirsty .

Purchase Tickets Here

Tickets cost $65 per person & include unlimited (but responsible) tastes of the seven different Terroir Project wild ales & guest brewery beers. A commemorative tasting glass & small bites are also included. This is an extremely limited & intimate event where we will be showcasing experimental, one-off beers that will not be available anywhere else!

Tickets go on sale Wednesday, August 15th at 9am via Nightout (link coming soon).

The Project Concept

The Rules:

From the West Coast to the East Coast, London to New Zealand, each participating brewery was invited to produce their own distinct hybrid, but with three binding stipulations: we all had to use the same grain bill; the same maturation period in barrels; and the same co-fermented percentage of wort & wine grapes. The kicker: all grapes had to be grown within 100 miles of each brewery.

The result is an unprecedented exploration into how “terroir”—or sense of place—drives what we taste.

This event will also feature five guest breweries who are not part of the 2018 Terroir Project but who are pushing boundaries & exploring new realms of wild ales.

2018 Terroir Project Breweries

Beavertown - London, England

Barrelworks - Buellton, CA

Garage Project - Wellington, New Zealand

Jester King - Austin, TX

Side Project - St. Louis, MO

Sierra Nevada - Chico, CA

          Skull Session: Vegas Favors Urban Meyer's Return, Joe Burrow Starts at No. 4 on Depth Chart, and Joey Bosa Says Nick is Further Along      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

We only got a glimpse of the first portion of a practice, but it still counts. Actual, on-the-field football is back!

ICYMI:

Word of the Day: Surfeit.

 VEGAS BANKS ON MEYER RETURN. One Vegas sports book seems to think it's nearly a lock Urban Meyer remains the head coach at Ohio State, but that it's even more likely he serves some sort of suspension, with the over/under set at 4.5 games.

For those of you not well versed in betting odds, that negative number is how much you would have to risk in order to make $100. This means someone would have to wager $1,500 on Meyer keeping his job in order to win just $100 – 1/15 odds.

To give a little perspective, those are roughly the odds that would be given to a 20-point favorite to win a college football game straight up. Which...

This happened.

There's no way of telling what information they're using to set these odds. It's difficult for me to imagine they have any sort of insider info based on how the investigation is organized, but these odds look extremely, extremely confident.

I guess time will tell.

 STARTING AT THE BOTTOM. Joe Burrow was the highest profile graduate transfer in the country, but as soon as he got to Baton Rouge, he was placed at the bottom of the depth chart, and has to earn his way to the top – just like everyone else.

From TheAdvertiser.com:

It is obviously very early, and it may just be window dressing. But new LSU quarterback Joe Burrow started at the bottom as the Tigers opened practice over the weekend.

The junior graduate transfer from Ohio State worked with the fourth team, while junior Justin McMillan, who had the best spring game of the quarterbacks, took the first snaps with the first team. No. 2 was sophomore Myles Brennan, and No. 3 was redshirt freshman Lowell Narcisse.

...

Orgeron had been waiting to see Burrow, who just arrived in June after graduating last spring from Ohio State, where he was a backup quarterback for two seasons.

"I was very pleased watching," Orgeron said. "It was the first time I've seen him. He's really confident. He's a leader out there. When he steps in there, he's cool. He's confident. He's smart. When we give the guys time off, he's in there watching film on his own. He's really a student of the game. He's mature. He's ready to go. He's competing. Just what we wanted."

That sounds fine and extremely coachy, but I've got a strong hunch he's not actually the team's No. 4 quarterback right now, nor will he be the team's No. 4 quarterback come September.

With all due respect to whoever else is on that roster, LSU hasn't produced a competent quarterback since... Zach Mettenberger? Forgive me for assuming the one Ohio State produced for them is the best option.

 JOEY ADMIRES NEW MODEL BOSA. Since Nick Bosa was a sophomore in high school, we've been hearing that he was just like his older brother, but better.

And as Nick enters his third, and almost-certainly final season at Ohio State, Joey is ready to join that bandwagon and admit that his little brother is undeniably further along than he was as a junior.

From SanDiegoUnionTribune.com:

“I don’t think it’s really close,” Bosa told the Union-Tribune earlier this summer, when asked to compare Nick as a true junior with Joey when he was entering his final season at Ohio State, also as a true junior.

“I think he’s pretty far ahead physically. He has a better understanding of pass-rushing than I did in college, that’s for sure.”

Considering that he was the first non-quarterback drafted in 2016, as the third selection, Joey acknowledged that he’s giving Nick a lot of love.

“It’s true, though,” he said.

“I don’t really give anybody credit for anything, even if it’s my brother,” he added. “It’s going to be fun to watch this year.”

If Nick Bosa could have left college after last season, I firmly believe he would have been a first-round pick without technically ever being a starter at Ohio State, simply because he's just a newer model of his older brother, who is dominating the league after just two seasons.

 SKETCHY HIGH SCHOOL SCHEDULES TOP TEAMS. Some of my favorite stories of the past few years have been the seedy college football teams, like College of Faith, which essentially sell wins to other programs.

But I ran across a story about a brand new Ohio "high school" that quite honestly puts those stories to shame.

This "school," which employs former Ohio State wide receiver Jeff Greene as an assistant coach, has put together a football team and scheduled perhaps the most daunted high school slate in the state of Ohio.

That's great, except said school is missing just about everything else, including an actual school.

From ThisWeekNews.com:

At the beginning of August, Christians of Faith Academy, known as COF Academy, did not have a school building, a working website, an identifiable academic structure, an announced home field or a released roster, to name just a few missing essentials, but it was scheduled to play one of Ohio’s most daunting high school football schedules beginning in just a few days.

The schedule includes such traditional Ohio powers as Huber Heights Wayne, Cleveland St. Ignatius and Lakewood St. Edward, and such major out-of-state programs as North Allegheny in Wexford, Pennsylvania, and IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida. The team has 12 games, two more than allowed by the Ohio High School Athletic Association.

The first matchup, a home game against Football North of Ontario, is scheduled for Friday, Aug. 17. (Most Ohio football teams begin their regular seasons Aug. 23 or 24.) As of Aug. 6, no location had been announced for any of the team’s four home games.

Roy Johnson, listed as the school's athletic director, gives his assurance that this actually is a real school with about 50 teachers, and will have 500 all-male students enrolled this fall semester, slated to start on Sept. 4.

But again, pretty much the only evidence of that, as detailed in the article, is a football team with no roster that has yet to register with the OHSAA.

Mark me down as fascinated to see how this plays out.

 STEAL OF THE DRAFT. In a shocking turn of events, it's looking like drafting a two-year starter at Ohio State at the end of the fifth round might turn out to be quite a steal.

The guy is a pass blocking champion in an increasingly pass-first league. I understand he didn't perform well at the combine, but when someone has the proven tape like Jones, you shouldn't overthink things.

          “A new world was now opened to Rebecca…”      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Susanna Rowson was America’s first blockbuster novelist, achieving lasting success with her fourth fiction, Charlotte: a Tale of Truth (1790), later retitled Charlotte Temple.

In 1792 Rowson published The Fille de Chambre (chambermaid), later retitled Rebecca, or The Fille de Chambre. It features a detailed and dramatic description of a voyage to America in the 1760s:
The day after Rebecca entered Miss Abthorpe’s service she set off for London, where she was to join Mr Seward’s family, who were to embark on board the same ship with her, and under whose protection she was to proceed to New-England. It was late in September when they arrived in town, and a variety of incidents detained them till the middle of October, so that they had but an untoward prospect before them, when so late in the season they embarked at Deal, on board a brig bound for Boston.

A fair wind presently took them out of the channel, and they flattered themselves with a prosperous voyage; but these flattering appearances were soon reversed, for the wind suddenly changed, rising almost to a hurricane, so that it was impossible to pursue their intended course, or return to port, and they continued tossing about in the Atlantic till the latter end of December, and then had not half made their passage, though their provisions
were so exhausted that they were obliged to live on a very small allowance of bread; of the water and salt meat which they had, together with a few pease, they were extremely careful.
After some anecdotes about the crossing (which I’ll return to), the ship finally reaches Massachusetts Bay. But by now it’s in the middle of winter.
The port of Boston is situated in such a manner, that, after having made land, six or seven hours good sailing will take a vessel into safe harbor, so that our weary voyagers began to think of landing that evening, however late it might be when they arrived;—but as the night came on, the wind increased, accompanied by snow and sleet; the cold at the same time being intense, it froze as it fell, and in a very short period the ropes about the ship were so incased in ice that they became immovable; the darkness increased, and to add to their distress, they lost sight of the light-house at the entrance of the harbor.

Their situation now was imminently dangerous; driving before the wind, among a multitude of rocks and breakers, without the least chance of avoiding them; to be shipwrecked in the very sight of home, was a painful trial indeed, yet this was what all expected, and for which all endeavored to prepare themselves with patient resignation.

About ten o’clock all their fears were realized, and a sudden shock convinced them they had struck on some rocks. The ensuing scene from that time till seven the next morning is better imagined than described, for till that time they had no prospect of relief, but continued beating on the rocks, the waves washing over them, and expecting momentary dissolution.

As the day-light advanced they discovered the island, from which the reef ran, to be inhabited. Several muskets were immediately discharged, and signals hung out, and about eight o’clock they discovered people coming to their assistance. It was impossible to bring a boat near the vessel, but the tide beginning to leave her, the men waded into the water, and placed a ladder against her side, down which the fear of immediate death gave Miss Abthorpe and Rebecca courage to descend; but what were the feelings of Mr. Seward, when he found the impossibility of his little daughter’s going down, so dangerous was it rendered by the ice that enveloped the steps of the ladder, and whence, if she fell, she must have been dashed to pieces, or lost among the rocks; nor did he dare to venture to descend himself with her in his arms, lest a false step or slip might destroy them both. But there was not time for much deliberation, as it was absolutely necessary to leave the ship before the tide returned.

At length an old sailor offered an expedient which was thought feasible; and the agitated parent fastened a strong cord round the waist of his child, by which he lowered her down the side of the vessel; the old sailor caught her in his arms, and bore her exultingly to the shore.

A new world was now opened to Rebecca, who, when she was a little recovered, beheld with astonishment how every object was bound in the frigid chains of winter.—The harbor which she could see from the house on the island, was one continued sheet of ice. The face of the country was entirely covered with snow, and from the appearance of all around she could form no probable hope of getting to colonel Abthorpe’s till the genial influence of spring should unbind their fetters; but in this she was agreeably mistaken, for the inhabitants of those cold climes being accustomed to the weather, were quick in expedients to facilitate their conveyance from one place to another.

The very next morning a boat was procured, and men placed at the head to break the ice as they proceeded. By two o’clock on the thirtieth of January, 1767, our heroine found herself once more on terra firma, comfortably seated at a large fire, in colonel Abthorpe’s parlor; for during the voyage Miss Abthorpe had conceived such an esteem for her, that she insisted on her being considered as a friend and sister, and her parents had too high a respect for their daughter, to wish to contradict so laudable a desire.
The Abthorpe family was no doubt inspired by the Apthorps, probably the wealthiest family in pre-Revolutionary Boston.

The Apthorps were even more an inspiration for America’s very first fiction blockbuster, William Hill Brown’s one-off The Power of Sympathy (1789). The young lawyer Perez Morton married Susan Wentworth Apthorp in 1781, then seduced her younger sister Frances. After becoming pregnant, Frances Apthorp committed suicide in 1788. That situation just cried out for a roman à clef. But unlike Rowson, Brown never published another novel.

TOMORROW: How Rowson drew on her own memories.

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

Namı diğer “Turkish Coffee Lady.” Ama ben ona “Türk kahvesinin prensesi”demeyi tercih ediyorum.

Bu kamyonla 6 ülke, 14 şehir gezdi 20 bin yabancıya Türk kahvesi ikram etti

KAGİDER Başkanı Sanem Oktar aracılığıyla tanıştım Gizem’le. Çok mutluyum, çünkü nerede şahane bir kadın girişimci var, yollarımız kesişiyor. Gizem, gönüllü girişimcilerden...

KÜLTÜREL DİPLOMASİ YAPIYOR

13 yıldır Washington’da yaşıyor ve ülkemizin markalaşma sürecine katkıda bulunmak için “kültürel diplomasi” yapıyor.

500 yıllık bir Türk markası olan Türk kahvesini yaygınlaştırmak ve daha çok insana tanıtabilmek için 2012’den beri Gezici Türk Kahvesi Kamyonu’yla dünyayı dolaşıyor.

Ne müthiş, ne şahane bir fikir değil mi?

Düşünün, bugüne kadar 6 ülke, 14 şehir gezdi o sempatik kamyonuyla!

Kurukahveci Mehmet Efendi ve Arzum Okka da bu nefis projeye destek oluyor. Tabii ki ona yardımcı olan gönüllü bir ekibi var. Ama yine de deli işi!

SIRADA LONDRA VAR

2012’de Amerika’da, 2013’de Hollanda, Belçika ve Fransa’da, 2015’de de Kanada’da 20 binden fazla kişiye Türk kahvesi ikram etti ve zengin kahve kültürümüzü tanıtmaya gayret etti.

Projesi ABD Temsilciler Meclisi’nde bir dostluk projesi olarak onurlandırıldı, yurtiçi ve yurtdışında birçok ödüle layık görüldü. Bundan sonraki destinasyon da Kültür Bakanlığı’nın desteğiyle, Kasım ayında Londra...

Tabii Gizem’i yakalayınca sormadan edemedim...

 

ASIRLARCA ÇOK GÜÇLÜ BİR İLETİŞİM ARACI OLMUŞ

- Tebrik ederim. Hem faydalı hem yaratıcı bir iş yapıyorsun. Kendi kahvemizi ve kültürel mirasımızı dünyaya tanıtıyorsun. Türk kahvesine bayılan biri olarak çok hoşuma gitti. Böyle bir şey yapmak nereden aklına geldi?

Çünkü ben de Türk kahvesine bayılıyorum! Tek geçerim! Ve şurası da gerçek ki Türk kahvesi, asırlar boyu çok güçlü bir iletişim aracı olmuş. Dünya tarihinde çok önemli bir yere sahip. Ama ne yazık ki yurtdışında yeterince tanınmıyor. Ben bunu dert edindim. “Tek başıma ne yapabilirim ki?” demedim, benim gibi Türk kahvesi tutkunlarıyla bu gezici kamyon fikrini hayata geçirmeye karar verdim. 2012’den beri dünyayı dolaşıyoruz. 22 aylık bir kızım var, kamyona onu da atıp dünyayı dolaşmaya devam etmek istiyorum.

- Türk kahvesinin diğer kahvelerden farkı ne?

Aroma, sunum, pişirme yöntemi açısından birçok farkı var, ama galiba en önemli fark şu: Bugün, dünya çapında bilinen tüm kahve geleneklerinin temelinde yatıyor bizim kahvemiz. Dünyanın ilk kahve pişirme yöntemi 16. yüzyılda Türkler tarafından geliştirilmiş. Telvesinden gelen tadı, damakta uzun süre kalıyor. Kendine özgü pişirme ve sunum tarzıyla da eşi benzeri yok. O yüzden de UNESCO 500 yıllık Türk kahvesini kültürünü ‘Kültürel Miras’ listesine aldı. Ayrıca sağlığa fayda açısından diğer kahvelere nazaran doktorların tercih ettiği bir içecek...

- Peki Starbucks kültürünün egemen olduğu dünyada işi zor değil mi?

Zor. Benim de amacım bunun değişmesine katkıda bulunmak. Kamyonumuzla dünyayı gezerken hep yabancı toplumların yoğun ilgisiyle karşılaşıyorum. Türk kahvesinin, eşsiz lezzeti ve geleneksel sunumu doğru şekilde tanıtıldığı takdirde potansiyelinin çok yüksek olduğunu düşünüyorum!

 

HER GİTTİĞİMİZ YERDE ACAYİP İLGİ GÖRDÜK

- Kamyon fikri nereden doğdu?

2008’de ‘ülke markalaştırma’ konsepti üzerine yüksek lisans eğitimi aldım. Tam da o dönem, dünya mutfaklarını Amerikalıların beğenisine sunan yemek kamyonları Amerika’da çok yaygın bir hale geldi. Bu seyyar araçlar bizim için eşsiz bir tanıtım yolu olabilirdi. Ama ne yazık ki Türk mutfağına dair hiç bir araç yoktu...

- Peki sen ne yaptın?

2012’de tam zamanlı işimden ayrılarak bir bağış kampanyası başlattım. Kurukahveci Mehmet Efendi’nin ve ATA-DC Derneği’nin destekleriyle, kâr gütme amacı olmayan ‘Gezici Türk Kahvesi Evi - Turkish Coffee Truck’ gönüllüleriyle beraber, 5 eyaleti kapsayan bu kamyon projesini kısıtlı bir bütçeyle hayata geçirdim. Washington, Baltimore, New York, New Haven ve Boston şehirlerinde tanıtım turları düzenledik. Sonra bize bir güç geldi, güvenimiz de yerine geldi. Hollanda, Belçika ve Fransa’yı kapsayan bir tur daha organize ettik. Derken ver elini Kanada, Toronto... Her gittiğimiz yerde acayip ilgi gördük, şimdi Kasım’da heyecanla Londra’ya gitmeyi bekliyoruz...

          China Is Better Able To Withstand A Trade War Than In The Past      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
As President Trump threatens to heap more tariffs on Chinese imports, he's got one important fact on his side: The United States remains China's biggest single export market, buying some $500 billion in goods last year alone. But China is less dependent on the American market than it was even a decade ago and in some ways is better able to withstand a trade war than the United States. "The question is less whether we can do harm to them than, which one can endure the pain the better? And there are some reasons to believe that over the short term, the Chinese are better positioned to manage this," says Robert Ross, a professor of political science at Boston College and an expert on U.S.-China relations. China grew into an economic superpower by becoming a major exporter, rapidly developing a large and highly efficient manufacturing base that enabled it to sell cheap products all over the world. "We built China," President Trump boasted during a recent appearance in South Carolina. But

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Benioff and Block both have a history at Oracle 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

He famously left Oracle after criticizing Mark Hurd

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

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

It wasn't long after that Hurd left Oracle.

Block has deep roots in Boston

Keith Block

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

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

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

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

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

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

          Celtics will play 76ers opening night (10/16), Christmas Day      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

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

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

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


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

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