          17 tips from an autism mom to help ease the transition back to school      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

6. "Create a daily school schedule for your child. You may not know the exact routine, but even walking through one day may make your child feel more at ease."

This is a post by Kimberlee Rutan McCafferty, mother to two sons on the autism spectrum and an Autism Family Partner at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). Kim is also the author of a blog about her two children with autism, at autismmommytherapist.wordpress.com

Summer vacation is ending all too fast, and before we know it those bright yellow school busses will be darting through our neighborhoods and a new school year will commence. Moving to a different classroom, grade, or school can be stressful for any child; for those on the autism spectrum, handling anxiety about the unknown can be exceedingly difficult.  These fears can be reduced by taking small steps to familiarize your child to his or her new situation prior to the beginning of the school year. I’ve used many of these strategies over the years with both of my autistic boys, who are on different ends of the autism spectrum. Of course all children are unique, so some may work better than others.  I’ve actually revisited several that haven’t worked in the past and found them to be helpful as the boys grew older.

Below are some tried and true tips that have helped my kids make a smooth transition in September, and have helped them to start a new school year successfully.

1. Talk to your child frequently about what to expect in the upcoming year. It’s the simplest tip, and perhaps the most important one to help reduce your child’s anxiety.

2. Cross days off on your calendar. Some children may have anxiety about when the school year begins. Simply crossing days off the calendar may help your child better understand when the school year starts.

3. Create a new morning routine and practice it prior to the start of the school year. Begin waking up your child a little earlier each morning so that he or she is acclimated to the new wake-up time way before that big first day. Do a few “run-throughs” near the end of summer vacation so your child knows what to expect in the time before leaving for school. If your child responds well to visual schedules, you might create one outlining everything from getting dressed to going on the bus.

4. Take a tour of the school. This can be arranged with the case manager of your child study team. You may not get to meet your child’s new teacher this early, but at least your child will become familiar with the building prior to attending. When you are on your tour, visit the main office, bathrooms, cafeteria, gym, library, playground, and any room your child may spend time in during the coming year. Take pictures on your tour and incorporate them into a social story afterwards so that you and your child can review it during the summer (a social story is a book that a parent or caretaker creates to explain in written and/or pictorial detail what the child should expect for an upcoming event).

5. Walk through emergency procedures on your visit. Many children on the spectrum have difficulty with loud noises and breaks in routine. If possible, when on your tour, have your case manager show your child where to go and what to do during any emergency scenario. Doing this will help your child be prepared, and he or she might find it fun to have mom or dad practice standing along silently.

6. Create a daily school schedule for your child. You may not know the exact routine, but even walking through one day may make your child feel more at ease. If possible, ask your case manager to acquire the present year’s schedule prior to your tour, and have your visit at the school follow that schedule.

7. If at all possible, have your child meet the teacher prior to the start of school. Remember to take his or her photo and add it to your social story.

8. Write a letter outlining your child’s strengths, weaknesses, possible sensory issues, dietary restrictions, and favorite reinforcers. If possible, have your child help you create this document, as it will be invaluable input for school staff. Be sure to include a few things that are fun and unique about your child. A copy of this letter (one to two pages maximum) should go to your child’s teacher and aides, but should also be made available to any staff who work with your child. Remember to send a copy to the principal, assistant principal, occupational therapist, physical therapist, speech therapist, physical education instructor, music teacher, etc. It is very helpful to teachers to have a “snapshot” of your child prior to instructing him or her. Don’t hesitate to brag as well!

9. If appropriate, make certain a behavior plan is in place day one. If your child has a plan that’s been working for him or her, ask that it be shared with his or her new teacher and implemented immediately at the start of the year.

10. If your child uses an augmentative device to communicate, make sure all the adults in his or her classroom are familiar with it. Many augmentative devices require some instruction on how to use them. At the very least, the teacher should be familiar with the device prior to the fall. All the aides who will work with your child should be trained as well, and there should be a plan in place so that all are comfortable using the device within the first few weeks of school.

11. If your child has sensory issues make sure he or she has a favorite sensory item available from the first day. For those children on the spectrum who struggle from sensory overload, certain objects can offer a great deal of comfort. Make sure your child will have at least one available at all times.

12. Ask to meet the bus driver. Many bus drivers take a practice run the last week of summer vacation. Request a “meet and greet” with your driver so your child feels comfortable riding the bus on that first day. You can even ask if you and your child can do a ride-along to the school as some drivers are amenable to that request.

13. After the school year begins be on top of your child’s progress. Make contact with all of your child’s instructors in the first few weeks of school. This enables you to track how your son or daughter is progressing and lets school staff know you are interested and invested in your child’s success.

14. Write a thank-you note to your child’s teacher and principal. If the first few weeks go smoothly for your child, it never hurts to thank those responsible for a smooth transition.

15. If possible, volunteer. Your presence at school sends the message that you are actively involved in your child’s education. Also, (for the most part) children love to see their parents at school. You will score points for being there!

16. Ask for help. Requesting assistance shows that you are willing to learn and to try new things to help your child.

17. Last, but definitely not least, try to relax. All children can pick up on their parents’ anxiety. If you can keep yours in check, it will help your child stay more calm on that all-important first day and through the school year.

Have a great year!

Everyone deserves the chance to reach their full potential. We need your help to tell lawmakers that improving education for children and young adults with autism is a priority for our community. Learn more about how you can get involved here

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.
 
Terms:
 
Confederation: 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.
 
English Bill of Rights: The Declaration of Rights in 1689, following the relatively bloodless "Glorious Revolution" of 1688, reasserting Protestant influence in England, and establishing a written declaration based on the belief that rights are granted by God, limiting the power of the king, and guaranteeing individual rights in writing. At its core, the system of government based on the English Bill of Rights, and the Magna Carta, holds as its philosophy that government is to serve the people, not the other way around.
 
Federalism: Government in which the central government's power and authority is limited by local government units, and where each unit is delegated a sphere of power and authority only it can exercise, while other powers must be shared. The term federalism comes from the Latin root foedus, which means "formal agreement or covenant." It includes the interrelationships between the states as well as between the states and the federal government.
 
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?

          Book Review: THE BOOKSHOP OF YESTERDAYS      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The following review is a special for BlackFive readers provided by Elise Cooper. You can read all of our book reviews and author interviews by clicking on the Books category link in the right side bar. The Bookshop of Yesterdaysby Amy Meyerson is part mystery and part drama involving family dynamics. It is a shout out to those who love books and bookstores since the main mystery is centered around both, and comes about with riddles from book quotes. Clues to the scavengers’ hunt are found in the classics of the past, The Tempest, Jane Eyre, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Frankenstein, Fear of Flying, Persuasion, The Grapes of Wrath, andBridge to Terabithia. The story begins with Miranda Brooks’ twelfth birthday party. Her beloved Uncle Billy is a no-show and to make matters worse that night she overhears a fight between him and her mother. She sees Billy only once more and then he cuts himself off from her life. Similar to someone who has lost a loved one she experiences grief, loss. and anger. He left her with no explanation.Fast-forward sixteen years later where Miranda attempts to make a life for herself in Philadelphia teaching history in a middle school. She finds out Billy has died and the fond memories of their times together sweeps over her. He took her to his Los Angeles bookstore Prospero Books, where they would read, solve riddles, and have elaborate scavenger hunts full of surprises. After the funeral Miranda learns she inherited the financially challenged bookstore and Billy has left her one more scavenger hunt: a quest to provide answers about the mysterious family’s rift that no one wants to speak about. Myerson explains, “My bookstore visually looks a lot like one in Echo Park. I borrowed a lot physically from it, but not any of the actual character struggles. I also spoke with some managers of bookstores that helped me to understand how they work. Silverlake, the community in Echo Park, has changed a lot. I wanted to make Prospero Books an earlier relic of the neighborhood that is disappearing.” Furthermore, “I love books about books. I wanted to set a story in a bookstore. The reason for the bookstores’ name, “Prospero Books,” is because “The Tempest” has a scene where he gains magical powers through books. Also, Billy would take Miranda there as a way to connect with her. Since it was originally his late wife’s he thought Miranda might also connect to her. I think it was a way for Billy to share his late wife, Evelyn, with Miranda and keep the memory of her alive. I think he tried to explain his life to Miranda through the books in his bookstore and not directly as in a letter. Scavenger hunts were a way Billy communicated. It enabled him to explain his emotions and through the riddles he was able to talk to Miranda.” Early on many readers will realize the big family secret. Yet, they will turn the pages to take the journey of the scavenger hunt with Miranda to find out find out how the past family secrets would be revealed. A scene from the book would forewarn readers that the quest is more important than the mystery: “he left her clues meant to impart wisdom and knowledge as well as lead to the reward: Even though I always figured out where the quest was going before we got there, he refused to let me rush through the lesson.” The author explained, “I wrote how Suze, Miranda’s mother, realized holding back secrets makes it progressively more difficult to tell the truth. I wrote in this book quote, ‘It’s difficult seeing parents for who they are, rather than who we want them to be.’ I wanted to explore the way we can and cannot know our parents. I know I feel this way and I think others do as well. It is hard to fully understand who they were before they became parents. We only know what they chose to tell us and how they chose to tell us.” This heartfelt debut novel explores loss, healing, and family with all the tensions, misunderstandings, and estrangements that are sometimes part of it. Books and the bookstore are an added bonus allowing readers to understand the importance of forgiveness.

          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.

          New Fund to Support Delaware Watershed Conservation      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The Delaware Watershed Conservation Fund will accelerate restoration and conservation of wildlife habitat across the Delaware River watershed while supporting local communities

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) today announced the launch of the Delaware Watershed Conservation Fund (DWCF), a competitive grant and technical assistance program of $4.3 million that will provide new support for the protection, restoration and conservation of fish and wildlife habitats in the Delaware River Watershed, which provides drinking water for more than 15 million people.

Congress provided funds to the FWS in fiscal year 2018 to leverage public and private funding to support the environmental and economic health of the Delaware River Watershed for boots-on-the-ground conservation projects — as outlined in the Delaware River Basin Restoration Partnership and Program Framework.

Covering 13,539 square miles of land and water, the Delaware River Watershed is home to native brook trout, red knots, river herring, freshwater mussels, oysters and other wildlife. Headwaters and streams located in rural, forested and agricultural areas play a major role in the entire ecosystem, as do urban and suburban waterways such as those in Trenton, Philadelphia, and Wilmington. 

“We are pleased to be partnering with the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to launch this conservation grant program in the Delaware River Basin that will improve the natural environment, economic health and quality of life for all citizens in the watershed,” said Wendi Weber, northeast regional director for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

Work supported by the DWCF will take place in a variety of landscapes and habitats across the Delaware River Watershed, from the beaches and tidal salt marshes of the Delaware Bay to the farms, cities, and towns of Delaware, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey, to the cold-water rivers and streams of New York.

The DWCF will expand and further facilitate restoration and conservation efforts in the basin to:
  • Restore and conserve fish and wildlife habitat
  • Improve and maintain water quality for fish, wildlife, and people
  • Manage water volume and improve flood damage mitigation for fish and wildlife habitat
  • Improve recreational opportunities consistent with ecological needs

          Cities Are Taxing Ride-Hailing Services Like Uber and Lyft. Is This a Good Thing?      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Cities Are Taxing Ride-Hailing Services Like Uber and Lyft. Is This a Good Thing?

With ride-hailing services like Uber and Lyft continuing to gain popularity and drawing attention for their impact on congestion and other urban ills, cities from Washington to São Paulo are moving to the seemingly inevitable next step: special taxes.

This is unsurprising. Recent research shows that ride-hailing services are contributing to dropping public transport rates and increased private vehicle travel on already-clogged streets.

However, new taxes and fees shouldn't just raise revenue. They can do more than that: they can make cities more livable and transport more sustainable. If ride-hailing is taxed, the mechanism and revenue should be used in carefully targeted ways that improve urban mobility overall.

Taxes on Ride-Hailing Enter the Scene

More than a handful of governments have enacted or are considering fees or taxes, that range from flat-rate fees per ride to taxing as a percent of the ride to systems that target certain types and locations of trips.

These take a variety of forms. For example, Mexico City charges 1.5 percent of ride fare; Washington, D.C., recently raised its tax from 1 to 6 percent of ride fare. Massachusetts levies a 20-cent tax on every trip. Porto Alegre has a monthly fee per licensed vehicle.

A full inventory of city measures to gain revenue from ride-hailing services is provided in a spreadsheet compiled by WRI Ross Center for Sustainable Cities.

Improving Mobility for the City

While new taxes bring in new revenue, these monies aren't necessarily making it easier to get around. For example, in Rhode Island a 7 percent tax on ride-hailing sends revenue directly to the state's general fund. In Philadelphia, a 1.4 percent tax sends money mostly to schools and the remaining third to the city's parking authority. These taxes are also not high enough to change travel behavior in a meaningful way, since transport can sometimes be less sensitive to higher prices.

A tax or charge on ride-hailing—and private traffic as a whole—should improve cities' transport systems overall, as stated in the Shared Mobility Principles for Livable Cities: "Every vehicle and mode should pay their fair share for road use, congestion, pollution, and use of curb space. The fair share shall take the operating, maintenance and social costs into account."

While ride-hailing trends are still changing, and will continue to change as technologies evolve, here are considerations for any city to contemplate in levying taxes that not only raise money but improve mobility for residents too:

1. Encourage more sustainable trips for all users. Any discussion should begin with a consideration of allvehicle traffic. People driving their own private cars continue to dominate traffic, and cause congestion, in most cities.

Places like London, Singapore and Stockholm are known for their congestion charges, but no city has yet comprehensively factored in ride-hailing.

Efforts to charge all road users are bubbling up, however. New York City flirted with a proposal to implement a congestion charging zone coupled with ride-hailing fees, but the State of New York balked and implemented only the ride-hailing fees, leaving anyone driving their own personal car into Manhattan's central business district untouched.

If cities are going ahead with taxes only on ride-hailing, they should encourage sustainable and shared travel over single-occupant rides. This means taxing ride-hailing as a percent of the fare or indexing to distance travelled, rather than a flat fee that would be the same regardless of the ride fare or distance. Most cities are already going this route.

Moreover, shared rides can be taxed at a lower rate than solo rides, or rather, solo rides could be taxed more to incentivize pooled rides. A current proposal in Washington, D.C., aims to reduce the planned tax to 1 percent for pooled rides.

2. Promote equity and access. Taxes should encourage service to transit-poor areas of the city and connectivity to transit generally. Most especially, they shouldn't hinder new mobility services where they may provide low-cost rides to residents in low-income areas or areas poorly serviced by public transport.

São Paulo, the first city to regulate ride-hailing in Brazil, applies its tax according not only to vehicle miles traveled but also equity factors such as whether a driver is a woman and whether the vehicle is accessible to the handicapped. Shared, electric/hybrid, off-peak and weekend trips are all further discounted. A next consideration of cities may be how to incentivize integration with public transit or access to poorly service areas.

3. Invest revenue in multiple modes. Revenue from ride-hailing taxes, like many existing gas taxes or subway fares, should go toward improving mobility systems. It's also important to support other modes of transport beyond the large public transit systems most commonly assumed to suffer from ride-hailing (like metro rail and buses). Improving road safety or adding bicycle lanes and pedestrian spaces are also ways to support a more holistic approach to urban transport.

Washington, DC's 6 percent tax on all ride-hail fares will fund the metro area's public transport agency, yet it is limited to public transport and not aimed at increasing cycling or walking. Fortaleza, Brazil, on the other hand, reduces its 2 percent tax on every trip to 1 percent for companies that make contributions towards urban mobility projects, such as sidewalks, bus lanes, bicycle lanes and bikeshare stations.

Ironically, a more useful guide may be London's congestion charge, which exempts for-hire vehicles such as ride-hailing services. To reduce traffic in highly-congested areas, the city charges all cars entering central London and uses the £1.7 billion ($2.2 billion) revenue to improve bus services, bicycle commuting and walking, and road safety. And recently, Transport for London is proposing expansion of its congestion charge to for-hire vehicles.

How Does Ride-Hailing Fit the Bigger Picture?

As new mobility services change cities and the way people move, today's decisions on taxes and other regulations can help shape a more sustainable mobility for all. There is more to consider, in terms of how to tax, how much to charge and where to send revenues—but taking a more holistic approach to understanding the impact of those policies is a good start.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          [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.

Being the managing editor of Instinct Magazine has been a fun, rewarding, and stressful job for the past couple of years.  It's been a joy to be able to have a great mix of voices represented on our platform.  We have demographically varied contributing writers from New York, Philadelphia, Fort Lauderdale, Nashville, Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and Liverpool, UK. 

We also get to see that demographic variance in our readers.  We are made aware of our audience by he many submissions of stories as well as being tagged heavily on Instagram: @instinctmagazine . Instead of keeping those tweets in house, we thought we would share some of our favorites of this last week.


We were hoping this one was going to be a video, but alas, no, it was just a pic from @will_simons_photography . Many of the tags we receive are businesses trying to promote, models trying to get traction, so this one is a combination, giving us great pics and a variety of men looking to get some traction.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          Red-hot voyage to sun will bring us closer to our star      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – A red-hot voyage to the sun is going to bring us closer to our star than ever before.

NASA's Parker Solar Probe will be the first spacecraft to "touch" the sun, hurtling through the sizzling solar atmosphere and coming within just 3.8 million miles of the surface.

It's designed to take solar punishment like never before, thanks to its revolutionary heat shield that's capable of withstanding 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit.

Liftoff is set for the pre-dawn hours of Saturday for this first-of-its-kind mission to a star.

"The coolest, hottest mission, baby, that's what it is," said Nicola Fox, the project scientist at Johns Hopkins University.

Roughly the size of a small car, Parker will get nearly seven times closer to the sun than previous spacecraft. To snuggle up to the sun, it will fly past Venus seven times over seven years. Each flyby will provide an orbit-shaping gravity boost, drawing it ever closer to the sun and straight into the corona – the sun's outermost atmosphere.

The closer, the better for figuring out why the corona is hundreds of times hotter than the sun's surface. Another mystery scientists hope to solve: What drives the solar wind? That's the steady, supersonic stream of charged particles blasting off the corona and into space in all directions.

"There are missions that are studying the solar wind, but we're going to get to the birthplace," Fox said.

Scientists expect the $1.5 billion mission to shed light not only on our own dynamic sun, but the billions of other yellow dwarf stars – and other types of stars – out there in the Milky Way and beyond. While granting us life, the sun also has the power to disrupt spacecraft in orbit, and communications and electronics on Earth.

"This is where we live," said NASA solar astrophysicist Alex Young. "We have to understand and characterize this place that we're traveling through."

The project was proposed in 1958 to a brand-new NASA, and "60 years later, and it's becoming a reality," said project manager Andy Driesman, also of Johns Hopkins, which designed and built the spacecraft. The technology for surviving such a close solar encounter, while still being light enough for flight, wasn't available until now.

Parker's 8-foot heat shield is just 4½ inches thick. Sandwiched between two carbon sheets is airy carbon foam. The front has a custom white ceramic coating to reflect sunlight; it's expected to glow cherry red when bombarded by the extreme solar heat.

Almost everything on the spacecraft will be behind this and thus in room-temperature shade while ducking through the jagged edges of the corona, without so much as a blister on its science instruments.

The spacecraft will hit 430,000 mph in the corona at closest approach. That's equivalent to going from Washington, D.C., to Philadelphia in a split second. Or Chicago to Beijing in under a minute.

This is the first NASA spacecraft to be named after someone still alive.

Eugene Parker, 91, professor emeritus at the University of Chicago, predicted the existence of solar wind 60 years ago. He plans be at Cape Canaveral for the launch. United Launch Alliance's Delta IV Heavy rocket is providing the muscle.

Parker got to inspect the spacecraft last fall. He said he's "holding my breath that everything goes well."

"This is a journey into never-never land, you might say, where it's too hot for any sensible spacecraft to function," Parker told Johns Hopkins' Fox in a recent interview. "But some very clever engineering and construction have succeeded in making what looks like a very workable instrument."

The spacecraft holds photos of Parker as well as a copy of his 1958 research paper on what he termed solar wind. Despite skepticism, NASA's Mariner 2 spacecraft proved Parker right in 1962.

Also on board: more than 1 million names of space fans submitted to NASA this past spring.

It's a fast-paced mission, with the first Venus encounter occurring less than two months after liftoff, in early October, and the first brush with the sun in November.

In all, the spacecraft will make 24 elongated laps around the sun, closer than the orbit of Mercury, the innermost planet. The records will start falling with the first orbit, when the Parker probe comes within 15.5 million miles (25 million kilometers) of the sun and beats the current record holder, NASA's former Helios 2 spacecraft. Helios 2 got within 27 million miles (43 million kilometers) of the sun in 1976.

Fox puts it this way: If the sun and Earth were on opposite ends of a football field, Mercury would be at the sun's 35-yard line, Helios 2 at the 29-yard line and the Parker probe at the 4-yard line.

NASA's Messenger, which orbited Mercury from 2011 to 2015, provided insight into the solar wind but was too away.

"You know something exciting is just around the bend, but where you're sitting you can't see what that is," Fox said. "So really the only way we can now do it is to do this daring mission to plunge into the corona."

The Parker probe's final three orbits – in 2024 and 2025 – will be the closest. The spacecraft eventually will run out of fuel and, no longer able to keep its heat shield pointed toward the sun, will burn and break apart – except perhaps for the rugged heat shield.

"It's a pretty tough shield," said Fox.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

~~~~

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

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

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

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

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

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

~~~~

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

The 2018 Hart Institute Administrators are:

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

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

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

"Judges’ Union Files Grievance Over DOJ’s Interference with Judicial Independence and Violation of the Due Process Rights of Those Appearing before the Immigration Courts; Guatemalan Youth Ordered Deported Despite Philadelphia-based Federal Judge’s Decision to Delay Hearing"

Press Release, Aug. 8, 2018 - "The National Association of Immigration Judges, the union that represents the nation’s roughly 350 federal Immigration Judges, filed a formal grievance today seeking redress for the unwarranted removal of cases from the docket of a Philadelphia-based judge, United States Immigration Judge Steven A. Morley. NAIJ also is seeking a written acknowledgement from the Department of Justice’s Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR), which oversees Immigration Courts, that no case assignment or reassignment be conducted in a manner that interferes with a judge’s decisional authority. According to the Judges’ filing, EOIR subverted the judicial process, undermined Judge Morley’s decisional independence, and impugned his competence and integrity, by removing pending cases scheduled for decision in order to obtain an Agency determined outcome.

US Attorney General Jeff Sessions personally interceded in the Matter of Castro-Tum in January using the case to severely limit the authority of Immigration Judges to schedule and prioritize their cases, otherwise known as “administrative closure.” The matter was then remanded to Judge Morley to continue to preside over the proceedings.

At that remanded hearing, an attorney appeared as “friend of the court” on behalf of Castro-Tum. Finding that the legal notice of hearing was too rushed to proceed on that day, Judge Morley continued the case to assure adequate time for proper notice. Disagreeing with Judge Morley’s exercise of judgment to ensure that due process was observed, the Agency re-assigned the case to a supervisory judge who traveled from Virginia to Philadelphia to hear just this one case, presumably to assure that an in absentia removal order was issued.

Dozens of additional cases were also removed from Judge Morley's docket after he questioned the reliability of the addresses provided to the Court by the government on behalf of juvenile respondents, including Castro-Tum.

“The decisional independence of immigration judges is under siege,” said Tabaddor. “If allowed to stand, the Agency can simply forum-shop its cases for the outcome it wishes to achieve,” she added.

The grievance filed by NAIJ maintains that actions against Judge Morley, a well-known, respected impartial judge, violated the integrity of the Immigration Court proceedings. The NAIJ filing further states that EOIR’s actions undermined not only Judge Morley’s judicial independence and ability to properly manage his docket, but also threatens the ability of all Immigration Judges nationwide to fairly apply the immigration laws of the United States consistent with due process rights of all parties."

Ani Ucar, Vice News, Aug. 8, 2018 - "[T]he grievance is a sign that immigration judges are growing increasingly defiant of the Trump administration's efforts to control the way they manage their cases. “It is the most blatant example of an affront to decisional independence,” said Judge Dana Leigh Marks, president emeritus of the National Association of Immigration Judges. “It’s a threat to our very existence, the heart of what we are trying to protect.” ... “Morale is at an all-time horrible low,” said Judge Marks, who has been serving as an immigration judge in San Francisco for over 30 years. “Never in the history of the organization have we filed a grievance such as this that goes to the core of our existence.”

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

          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.

          Even 'Proper' Technique Exposes Nurses' Spines To Dangerous Forces      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Scientists say nurses like Sunny Vespico are prime examples of what nursing schools and hospitals are doing wrong: They keep teaching nursing employees how to lift and move patients in ways that could inadvertently result in career-ending back injuries. Vespico, a registered nurse, was working the night shift in the intensive care unit at Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia on March 31, 2012. At roughly 12:30 a.m., a large patient was having trouble breathing, so Vespico and a nursing assistant moved her to a special air bed designed for patients with respiratory problems. "Immediately I felt a pop in my back and pain down my leg," Vespico says. "As a nurse, and understanding the mechanics of the body, I knew that there was something very wrong." An MRI confirmed it: She had herniated one of her discs. And so began a saga of excruciating pain and months off from work. "I am 36 years old," Vespico says. "I've had three surgeries over the last two years. And only now, after the
          Hospitals Fail To Protect Nursing Staff From Becoming Patients      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
When Tove Schuster raced to help a fellow nurse lift a patient at Crozer-Chester Medical Center near Philadelphia in March 2010, she didn't realize she was about to become a troubling statistic. While working the overnight shift, she heard an all-too-common cry: "Please, I need help. My patient has fallen on the floor." The patient was a woman who weighed more than 300 pounds. So Schuster did what nursing schools and hospitals across the country teach: She gathered a few colleagues, and they lifted the patient as a team. "I had her legs — a corner of one of the legs, anyway," says Schuster, who was 43 years old at the time. "And as we swung her up onto the bed, I felt something pop. And I went 'ooo.' " She finished the shift in pain and drove straight home to bed. But after Schuster woke up late that afternoon, her husband, Matt, heard her shouting. He says he ran to the bedroom and found her crawling across the floor. "I thought it was a joke at first," he says. "And she says, 'I can

Something's not quite right with media darling and Richard Holbrooke toady Ronan Farrow. In an interview with Benjamin Hart for "New York Magazine", a few months ago, Farrow was asked Q: "Did you see the [Cosby] verdict as a sort of referendum on what’s happening in the culture?" A: "I will say that<i> I reported a lot </i> about the initial allegations at a time when they weren’t in the headlines." http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2018/05/ronan-farrow-on-the-sad-state-of-american-diplomacy.html Farrow started writing journalistic pieces around 2007. The Bill Cosby scandal broke in October 16 2014, when Hannibal Buress mentioned the accusations in a comedy sketch. After Buress's sketch, women came forward saying Cosby had abused them. The allegations against Cosby were thus put "in the headlines". For instance, Time magazine ran a story on the accusations on Oct 21, 2014: http://time.com/3525865/hannibal-buress-bill-cosby/ As did the "New York Daily News": http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/gossip/hannibal-buress-bill-cosby-rapist-article-1.1981959 I did a Google search for "Ronan Farrow" and "Bill Cosby" between January 1st, 2007, and October 16th, 2014. All I found was one single September 2014 interview with Cosby biographer author Mark Whitaker where Farrow alludes to unspecified "charges of abuse" made against Cosby, and the biographer says he was unable to confirm these charges. Nothing else by Farrow about Cosby. That's not "reported a lot". That's one question in an interview. It's not even as detailed as the article in "Philadelphia" magazine in 2006 which first detailed the Cosby accusations. That's not "reported a lot". Note also that in the NYMag interview, Farrow speaks at length about the Cosby abuse scandal without mentioning Hannibal Buress, Andrea Constand, Beverley Johnson, Louisa Moritz or the other people involved in actually bringing Cosby down. A rich white man stealing the credit for the work done by women and a black man? Surely not? ;)

          What Does It Mean If An Attack Is 'ISIS-Inspired'?       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
When 30-year-old Edward Archer opened fire on a Philadelphia policeman earlier this month, he quickly offered authorities a motive: He told them he had done it for the Islamic State. "He pledges his allegiance to the Islamic State," Capt. James Clark of the Philadelphia Police Department told reporters hours after the Jan. 7 shooting. "He follows Allah and that is the reason he was called upon to do this." The FBI, for its part, has said it is investigating the attack as a possible act of terrorism — inspired by ISIS. The problem is that apart from Archer's declaration, investigators combing through his communications haven't been able to find even the most gossamer connection between the shooter and the terrorist group. It raises the question as to what "ISIS-inspired" really means — and whether by accepting those declarations at face value, law enforcement and analysts are giving terrorists too much credit. "The way we have traditionally talked about attacks being 'inspired' by
          Perrotin Tokyo present exhibition of works by Belgian artist Pieter Vermeersch      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Beyond any sense of fading light or imminent sunrise, paintings by Belgian artist Pieter Vermeersch veer away from seeing the world in simple terms. Instead, they abstract its image through materiality, picturing the world as a series of carefully controlled encounters. Their restlessness and curiosity seek out the unexpected and unknown. Towards the end of Eric Rohmer’s film Le Rayon Vert (1986), a restless Delphine (Marie Rivière) and curious Jacques (Vincent Gauthier) wait for a flash of light said to magically appear as the sun drops behind the horizon. This fading light is briefly exchanged for a moment of genuine connection between the two, while daybreak on the other side of the world creates its own sense of resolve, with Ryunosuke Akutagawa describing the Japanese rising sun as a quieting influence over the restless conflict of sleep.
          Move group      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

In 1978 the Move black liberation group was besieged by a gang of thugs, who eventually tried to shoot them all. One thug was killed — by another thug, since the Move members didn't shoot at all. In a perversion of justice, all the Move members there were sent to prison for life.

They can't ever have parole unless they express "remorse" for what they didn't do.

I don't know enough about the activities of Move to say whether I would support it. I have not heard the other accusations and criticisms against Move, so I cannot judge whether they committed some crime some time, or did things I would disagree with. I don't know whether there were grounds to arrest them in 1978, or in 1985. I have no opinion about those matters.

But it is clear that biggest injustice in the matter was the one done to them by the thugs.

          In China, an entire generation is growing up with censored internet      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Free speech and censorship are hot topics in North America, with heated debates over issues such as Facebook’s decision to delete pages belonging to conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, Twitter’s refusal to ban neo-Nazis, and whether Google should remove controversial or offensive YouTube videos. But none of these topics stir much interest in China, according to a recent piece by Li Yuan, a technology writer for The New York Times—mostly because an entire generation has never heard of Facebook, Twitter, or Google, and censorship isn’t something they seem to care much about.

For anyone interested in the open, uncensored web, Li’s portrayal of how the younger generation in China experience the internet is likely to be profoundly depressing. She mentions an 18-year-old named Wei Dilong, who lives in a city in southern China and likes basketball, hip-hop music, and Hollywood superhero movies. He has never heard of Google or Twitter, and has a hunch that Facebook might be a bit like Baidu, the Chinese search engine. Wen Shengjian, a 14-year-old, said he had heard of the platforms, but said a friend of his father’s told him they were blocked because some of their content wasn’t appropriate for the development of socialism with Chinese characteristics. “I don’t need them,” he told the Times.

As depressing at it might be to consider, it appears the Chinese government has achieved some or all of its original goal in blocking certain sites and services: In other words, it has managed to keep almost an entire generation away from content it disapproves of, and replaced Western apps and services with its own heavily censored versions, to the point where young Chinese men and women show little or no interest in—or even awareness of—the alternative. In a study earlier this year, Li cites, two economists found most college students were not interested in uncensored sites even when they were given free tools to access them.

This has become particularly relevant with the news that Google is reportedly trying to re-enter China after almost a decade of being blocked there, and in order to achieve that goal it is considering offering the Chinese government a search app and a news app that will both be heavily censored. One of the fears that some critics have of this move is that not only will Google be acceding to the demands of a repressive and totalitarian state, but its decision to cater to China’s demands could lead to requests from other repressive governments around the world for their own censored versions of the internet.

Here’s more on China and its tangled relationship with the Web:

  • A Chinese-based cloud: According to Bloomberg, Google is in talks with Chinese internet giant Tencent about a partnership that would see it offer cloud services such as Google Drive and Google Docs in the country. In most markets, Google’s services are hosted on its own servers, which it runs via giant server farms in various locations around the world, but Chinese law requires that any such service using Chinese data must be located in the country, so Google is reportedly looking for partners.
  • Baidu talks tough: After news of Google’s plan to possibly re-enter the country broke, the chief executive of China’s largest search engine, Baidu, said he was confident his company would be able to prevail over the US-based giant. Robin Li wrote on his WeChat account that if Google returned, “we are very confident we can just PK and win again,” using a popular video-game term meaning “player kill.”
  • A disappearing article: People’s Daily, the largest newspaper in China and an official organ of the Communist government, published a piece of commentary about Google’s plans in which it said the company would be welcome to return to China, provided it abided by all of the requisite laws of the country (such as censorship). A number of China-watchers note that the article in question seems to have disappeared.
  • Questions from Congress: A bipartisan group of six senators have sent Google a letter asking the company to explain its plans to re-enter China by acceding to the government’s demands for censorship. The group, which includes Senator Marco Rubio and Senator Mark Warner, called reports of the plans “deeply troubling” and said that a move back into the country “risks making Google complicit in human rights abuses related to China’s rigorous censorship regime.”
  • WeChat is everything: Young Chinese internet users may not have heard of Facebook, YouTube, or Twitter, but they have something that is like all three of those put together and then some: WeChat, which is a discussion platform but also a news source and a payment service. Mia Shuang Li wrote for CJR about how it has become the single most important service for journalists and the media in general.

Other notable stories:

  • Alex Jones, whose conspiracy-peddling Infowars site has been blocked by Facebook, YouTube, Apple and Spotify, has accused the tech giants of censorship, and called on his followers to rise up against anti-Trump “sociopaths.” Jones told The New York Times the moves were part of a plot involving Democrats, China, “globalists” and “corporatists,” and argued that his support for Donald Trump was the main reason he was being censored, not his role in publishing misinformation or hate speech.
  • Two months after the European Community introduced its GDPR or General Data Protection Regulation, which imposes strict requirements on the handling of user data by publishers and platforms, more than 1,000 news websites are still unavailable in the European Union, according to a report from Nieman Lab. Some publishers appear to have decided that serving EU users isn’t worth the cost of complying with the rules.
  • Grace Shulman, who was the poetry editor at The Nation from 1971 to 2006, says in an opinion piece for The New York Times that the magazine “betrayed” poet Anders Carlson-Wee and its own principles when it apologized for a poem that Carlson-Wee wrote in which he used black vernacular (Carlson-Wee is white). Shulman criticized what she called “the backward and increasingly prevalent idea that the artist is somehow morally responsible for his character’s behavior or voice.”
  • According to a survey done by Ipsos, more than 40 percent of Republicans said the President should have the authority to shut down media outlets if they misbehave, according to a report from the Daily Beast. Almost half of Republican respondents also agreed with the statement, “The media is the enemy of the people,” a phrase that President Donald Trump has used many times.
  • Jim Friedlich writes for CJR about the legacy of H.F. “Gerry” Lenfest, the Philadelphia-based cable TV mogul turned philanthropist who passed away on the weekend at the age of 88. Lenfest bought The Philadelphia Inquirer and Daily News four years ago and then created and funded a nonprofit organization, the Lenfest Institute, designed to enable the newspapers to continue publishing in perpetuity.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          Culberson Sparks HR Spree by Braves in 8-3 Victory      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Charlie Culberson homered in a third straight game, Tyler Flowers and Ronald Acuna Jr. added two-run shots and the Atlanta Braves defeated the Washington Nationals 8-3 Wednesday night.

Culberson hit a three-run drive off Tommy Milone (1-1) in the second inning, and it was 7-1 by the fourth. Culberson has eight home runs this season — five against the Nationals.

Atlanta has won eight of 10 to move within a half-game of first-place Philadelphia in the NL East. Washington fell six games back following its second consecutive loss to the Braves.

Bryce Harper hit his 28th home run for the Nationals, who showed their frustration in the sixth inning when rookie Luis Soto and hitting coach Kevin Long were ejected by home plate umpire Greg Gibson. Soto started jawing at Gibson before stepping into the batter's box, presumably in regard to the third strike call on his previous at-bat.

Mike Foltynewicz (9-7) allowed three runs, one earned, in 5 2/3 innings. He's 3-2 in five starts against Washington this season.

Foltynewicz needed 35 pitches to get out of the first inning. He gave up a double, a single and a walk and another runner reached on a throwing error — yet the Nationals scored only one unearned run and left the bases loaded.

In the second, Millone yielded a pair of two-out singles before Culberson sent an 0-2 pitch into the Braves bullpen beyond the left-field wall.

Flowers and Acuna went deep in the fourth to put the Braves comfortably ahead.

It was 7-2 in the sixth before Harper hit a leadoff homer and Soto was ejected. Washington went on to load the bases with two outs before Luke Jackson replaced Foltynewicz and struck out Adam Eaton.

TRAINER'S ROOM

Braves: Placed on the DL on Tuesday with a left groin strain, LHP Max Fried doesn't expect to be out for long. "It's just a little sore," he said Wednesday. "For the most part, I'm just trying to get it better to make sure it's a non-issue going forward."

Nationals: RHP Kelvin Herrera was placed on the 10-day DL with a rotator cuff impingement, an injury he sustained Tuesday. If all goes well, he can start throwing by the end of next week. ... Stephen Strasburg (cervical nerve impingement) and Erick Fedde (shoulder inflammation) threw in the bullpen. "They both threw well, said they felt good," manager Dave Martinez said. "The next step for both is to have another bullpen session and go from there."

WELCOME BACK

With Herrera out, Washington recalled Koda Glover from Triple-A Syracuse. As a rookie last season, Glover notched eight saves in 23 games before rotator cuff tendinitis ended his season in June.

ROBBERY

Acuna made a sensational catch in the fourth inning to rob Matt Adams of a home run. Acuna raced back to the center-field wall, leaped and snagged the ball with his outstretched glove before sprawling on the warning track. Foltynewicz waved his cap to show his appreciation for the play.

UP NEXT

Braves: Anibel Sanchez (6-3, 2.89 ERA) pitches the series finale Thursday afternoon. He's 10-1 with a 2.11 ERA lifetime against Washington.

Nationals: Gio Gonzalez (6-8, 4.04 ERA) is 0-6 in his last 11 starts since May 28 and owns a 5-11 career record against the Braves.


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Breast milk depots accepting donations

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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







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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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




          Former Mets Coach (1982-1983 /1994-1996) & Manager (1983): "The Capitol Punisher" Frank Howard      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Frank Oliver Howard was born on August 8, 1936 in Columbus Ohio. The six foot seven inch tall, 255 pound Howard was one of the biggest players of his era. Howard was an intimidating presence at the plate, and hit some mammoth career HRs.

He attended Ohio State University playing both baseball & basketball. He was drafted by the Philadelphia Warriors of the NBA but chose to play baseball instead. He signed with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 1958. He would earn the nickname of “Hondo” after a character in a John Wayne film.

After two brief appearances he became a regular in 1960 replacing Carl Furillo as the Dodger right fielder. He was the NL Rookie of the Year hitting 23 HRs with 15 doubles 77 RBIs batting .268 although he did strike out 108 times. The next year he batted .296 but was limited to just 92 games, still hitting 15 HRs.

In 1962 he had his best year in Los Angeles, hitting 31 HRs (7th in the NL) with 25 doubles 80 runs scored & 119 RBIs (5th in the NL) while batting .296. On June 30th he hit a HR against the New York Mets, in a game where Sandy Koufax threw his first career no hitter.

He came in 9th in the league’s MVP voting that season, as the Dodgers & Giants tied for first place. A three game playoff was decided for the pennant, and Howard struggled going just 1-11 as Los Angeles lost to the Giants.

The next season he hit 28 HRs with 64 RBIs (third on the Dodger team behind Ron Fairly & Tommy Davis) batting .273 as the Dodgers went on to win the World Series behind the pitching of Sandy Koufax & Don Drysdale.

In the World Series Howard hit .300 (3-10) blasting an upper deck HR off Whitey Ford in the last game of the Dodgers Series sweep. It would be big Frank’s only post season appearance in a 16 year career.

In 1964 Howard hit a three run HR on June 4th at Philadelphia’s Connie Mack Stadium leading L.A. to a 3-0 win in Sandy Koufax’s third career no hitter. Howard had another 20 plus HR season in 1964 but his batting average dropped off to .227 and he drove in 69 runs, striking out 116 times. It was his third straight season of 100 plus strike outs. After the 1964 season he was traded with three other players to the Washington Senators for Claude Osteen and $100,000.

He would spend seven years in Washington D.C. earning the new nickname of “the Capitol Punisher”. Howard became one of the league’s biggest sluggers & most feared hitters. He hit over 20 HRs six times, including three straight seasons of 40 plus HRs.

His first three seasons there he played for Gil Hodges, hitting 36 HRs third in the league behind Harmon Killebrew & Carl Yastrzemski. He also led all left fielders in fielding before switching to first base the next season.

In 1969 he gave up his uniform #9 when the Senators hired Ted Williams as their manager. Williams taught Howard how to be more patient at the plate, go deeper into the count & draw more walks.

In 1968 Howard led the American League in HRs (44) extra base hits (75) slugging % (.52 %) averaging a HR every 13 times up at bat. He was second in league in RBIs (106) and made his first of four straight All Star teams. During a stretch in May, Howard hit ten HRs in one single week, over a period of just twenty at bats.

No one has ever come close to topping this feat, in baseball history. He also had a stretch of one HR in six straight games.

In 1969 the Senators had their only winning season during Howards time there, he bashed 48 HRs (second to Harmon Killebrew) with 111 RBIs (second to Reggie Jackson) leading the league in intentional walks (29), with 60 extra base hits, & a career high .574 slugging %, while batting .296 matching a career best.

In his last at bat at RFK Stadium he hit a massive HR off Mike Kekich of the A.L. New York team, a pitch called by Ralph Houck as a gift to the big man. He thanked the catcher when he touched home plate, threw his helmet into the crowd & said it was his biggest thrill in his playing career.

The Senators moved to Texas and became the Rangers; Howard struggled in the team’s first year in Arlington batting just .244 with 9 HRs in 95 games played, and was soon released.

At age 36 his career was winding down, he finished his last two seasons in Detroit by 1973. On September 8th he hit his final career HR at Fenway Park against the Boston Red Sox, he had hit a Hr in his previous game three days earlier as well.

He then came over to the New York Mets as a coach with Bamberger in 1982 as the Mets batting coach. After Bamberger resigned in 1983 Howard was named the tenth manager in Mets history.

He basically was just an interim manager, who didn’t have much to work with especially in the pitching department. He took over the team on June 3rd 1983 in Los Angeles with the team in 6th place, 9 ½ games back.

In his first game, the Mets beat Tommy Lasordas Dodgers 5-2 as Ed Lynch earned the victory. The Mets would win two out of three in Los Angeles but faltered from there. They did give Howard two four game win streaks in early August, winning eight of nine games, their best streak under his tenure. His Mets finished in last place, as the team went 52-64 in 116 games under his watch.

Although on a positive note, Daryl Strawberry was inserted in the lineup permanently winning the rookie of the year award, & the Mets acquired Keith Hernandez that June under his watch. He was replaced by Davey Johnson the following season (1984).

Howard was known as being a gentle giant, a nice guy who always appreciated the fans. Howard returned as a Met coach in 1994-996 under Dallas Green & later Bobby Valentine.

He remained an active coach with the AL New York team, the Seattle Mariners & Tampa Devil Rays. He also worked in player development in the 2000s.

Honors: When baseball came back to Washington D.C. with the Nationals, the Big Man was honored again, and regularly appears at baseball functions in the area. He also is involved with a lot of charity work at children’s hospitals in the D.C. area.
