          Kayakers to Paddle From Kent to Cleveland for 5th Annual Crooked River Commute      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Two days and 50 miles. That is how long it will take kayakers to paddle the Cuyahoga River from Kent State University to Kent State’s Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative for the 5th annual Crooked River Commute. The event is intended to promote the river as a shared asset for education, recreation, and sustainability.


A Kent State University student pulls a kayak up on the bank of the Cuyahoga River.

The kayakers will leave from Heritage Park in Kent on Friday, Aug. 10, and celebrate their return to Cleveland by paddling into the Cleveland Flats neighborhood on Saturday, Aug. 11. The flotilla of 18 kayakers is expected to arrive at the Cleveland Metroparks Merwin’s Wharf on Saturday evening. An arrival party is planned at Merwins Wharf on Saturday from 6-8 p.m. to cheer on the paddlers and enjoy the riverfront surroundings.


Kent State University students, faculty, alumni, and friends will complete the trek, which includes overnight camping at Heritage Farms in Peninsula. Kayaks will be provided by Kent State’s Crooked River Adventures, a livery offering recreational and instructional opportunities on the Cuyahoga River and Mogadore Reservoir. The Crooked River Commute team hopes to raise awareness about riverfront communities, promote freshwater design issues, and produce a documentary film about the journey.

Kent State’s Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative and Kent State’s College of Architecture and Environmental Design are committed to promoting the ecological health of the river and its recreational opportunities through outreach as well as educational and academic programs designed to promote the river as a critical asset to the region’s future.


The kayakers will be sharing their journey live though social media. You can follow them through Facebook, Twitter and Instagram using #CrookedRiverCommute.

          CAT DAY      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Happy International Cat Day, Spy Vibers! Spy Vibe recommends leather for your active week ahead. Let's face it, it's frustrating when your outfit rips every time you have to dodge bullets on the back of your scooter or when you give a few Judo throws in a dark alley. And don't even mention those midnight strolls over the rooftops! Leather catsuits, especially made for our heroines, are a time-proven solution for your well-dressed adventures. Before this style became hyper-sexualized with exaggerated physicality and shiny latex, it was the original design for cool athletic lady detectives, jewel thieves, and spies. From a time when women in pop culture could be powerful by being independent and skilled, characters didn't have to always play the card of availability- as Gloria Steinem has pointed out: often the only game in town for women to claim power. Figures like Irma Vepp (Les Vampires/1915), Miss Fury (1940s), Cathy Gale (The Avengers/1964), Mrs Peel (The Avengers/1965), Honey West (1965), Marianne Faithful (Girl On a Motorcycle/1968)), and Catwoman (1966) below show us a far more nuanced possibility. Lady Spy Vibers never settle for less! Related posts: Kinky BootsPeeling Off the TrenchcoatsMods to Moongirls. Check out my spring sale on eBay here. Love the fashion? I've included a promo collage below. Enjoy!

And let's give a little room for some other cool cats! Below: T.H.E. Cat, Bettie Page, Diana Rigg, Sean Connery, and John Lennon. Enjoy! Have you heard my new episode of Cocktail Nation Radio? Spy Vibe is featured in a podcast segment every month, where I introduce cool films/series and share recordings from the Cold War. This month I introduce Get Smart. For more radio action, go to Episode #1 (Danger Man) and Episode #2 (The 10th Victim), Epsiode #3 (On Her Majesty's Secret Service), Episode #4 (Roger Moore/The Saint), and Episode #5 (The Avengers), Episode #6 (The Prisoner), and Episode #7 (The Ipcress File), Episode #8 (The Man From U.N.C.L.E.), Spy Vibe Radio: UFO, Spy Vibe Radio: Danger DiabolikSpy Vibe Radio: Peter GunnSpy Vibe Radio: Jerry Cotton, and Spy Vibe Radio: Flint.

I also want to let Spy Vibers know that my new book is available for pre-order on Amazon.Talking Mort Walker: A Life in Comics chronicles the 83-year career of the creator of Beetle Bailey and Hi and Lois with rare interviews, articles, unseen photos and cartoons, and tributes from the comic community. More info at Amazonand Amazon UK. Check other Amazon sites for your region. From the press release: Talking Mort Walker: A Life in Comics is a major accomplishment." -Brian Walker (from the Foreword). Besides syndicating nine comic strips, including Beetle Bailey and Hi and Lois, Mort Walker devoted his life to creating, collecting, curating, and chatting about his one true love- the funnies! Talking Mort Walker: A Life in Comics takes readers on a journey for the first time through Walker's career between 1935-2018, where rare interviews, articles, letters, unpublished photographs, and drawings reveal insights about the child prodigy who grew up to become the Dean of American cartooning.

           Amid engagement news with Nick Jonas, Priyanka Chopra says her personal life is not for public consumption       Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Priyanka Chopra is in headlines every single day either for her current or upcoming projects or due to her relationship with American singer Nick Jonas. As their whirlwind romance continues to be in news, the actress says that her personal life is not for public consumption. The actress returned to India this morning to speak at a session titled 'Challenging the Status Quo & Forging New Paths' organised Jointly by FICCI Ladies Organisation (FLO) and Yes Bank.

Amid engagement news with Nick Jonas, Priyanka Chopra says her personal life is not for public consumption

The interactive session was hosted by Vir Sanghvi where Priyanka Chopra talked about various aspects of her life. Talking about her personal life and why she wants it to be protected, she said, "My personal life is not for public consumption. 90 per cent of my life is for public consumption but 10 per cent is for me. I am a girl and I have the right to keep that to myself. My family, friendship, my relationships are things I don't think I need to defend or explain it to anyone. I am not running for the Office, so I don't think I need to give explanations."

"Sometimes I laugh, sometimes I get annoyed... But mostly, I tell my publicists 'Let it be, today's news is tomorrow's trash'," Priyanka said here on Monday.

It was only in July end that the foreign media reported that after dating for over two months, Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra were reportedly engaged. The 25-year-old singer proposed to Priyanka on her birthday in London. While the couple is yet to officially confirm their engagement, fans are very excited about them. Just this past weekend, Priyanka flew off to Singapore where Nick performed at Hyperplay concert organised by MTV Asia.

Meanwhile, on the work front, Priyanka Chopra recently wrapped up Hollywood flick Isn’t It Romantic alongside Adam Devine, Rebel Wilson and Liam Hemsworth. The film is scheduled for Valentine’s Day release next year. She is also starring in Shonali Bose’s tentatively titled The Sky Is Pink with Farhan Akhtar and Zaira Wasim. Besides these two films, she has booked a leading role in Hollywood film Cowboy Ninja Viking opposite Chris Pratt.

          Confusion Fueling Oklahoma Outcry Over EPA’s ‘Waters Of The United States’ Rule      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Oklahoma Congressman Jim Bridenstine calls it a power grab by an imperial president. U.S. Representative Frank Lucas says it would trigger an onslaught of additional red tape for famers and ranchers in Oklahoma. That kind of hyperbole is expected anytime President Barack Obama’s EPA does, well, anything. But the changes being proposed to the way bodies of water are classified are confusing. The so-called ‘Waters of the United States’ designation is the federal government’s attempt to define which bodies of water qualify for protection under the Clean Water Act. The EPA is trying to tweak that definition. And it’s got farmers like Mason Bolay worried. “My great, great grandpa made the land run in 1893 and we still farm the same farm they originally staked about 5 miles south of here,” Bolay says. as he gestures toward a dry streambed at the bottom of a hill behind his house. “We’re standing here on top of a hill, but yet, there’s a waterway not 20 feet from us that runs water when it

In the jungles of Costa Rica, where humidity routinely tops 90 percent, simply moving around outside when it’s over 105 degrees Fahrenheit would be lethal. And the effect would be fast: Within a few hours, a human body would be cooked to death from both inside and out. Fossils by Heartless Machine

I. ‘Doomsday’
Peering beyond scientific reticence.

It is, I promise, worse than you think. If your anxiety about global warming is dominated by fears of sea-level rise, you are barely scratching the surface of what terrors are possible, even within the lifetime of a teenager today. And yet the swelling seas — and the cities they will drown — have so dominated the picture of global warming, and so overwhelmed our capacity for climate panic, that they have occluded our perception of other threats, many much closer at hand. Rising oceans are bad, in fact very bad; but fleeing the coastline will not be enough.

Indeed, absent a significant adjustment to how billions of humans conduct their lives, parts of the Earth will likely become close to uninhabitable, and other parts horrifically inhospitable, as soon as the end of this century.

Even when we train our eyes on climate change, we are unable to comprehend its scope. This past winter, a string of days 60 and 70 degrees warmer than normal baked the North Pole, melting the permafrost that encased Norway’s Svalbard seed vault — a global food bank nicknamed “Doomsday,” designed to ensure that our agriculture survives any catastrophe, and which appeared to have been flooded by climate change less than ten years after being built.

The Doomsday vault is fine, for now: The structure has been secured and the seeds are safe. But treating the episode as a parable of impending flooding missed the more important news. Until recently, permafrost was not a major concern of climate scientists, because, as the name suggests, it was soil that stayed permanently frozen. But Arctic permafrost contains 1.8 trillion tons of carbon, more than twice as much as is currently suspended in the Earth’s atmosphere. When it thaws and is released, that carbon may evaporate as methane, which is 34 times as powerful a greenhouse-gas warming blanket as carbon dioxide when judged on the timescale of a century; when judged on the timescale of two decades, it is 86 times as powerful. In other words, we have, trapped in Arctic permafrost, twice as much carbon as is currently wrecking the atmosphere of the planet, all of it scheduled to be released at a date that keeps getting moved up, partially in the form of a gas that multiplies its warming power 86 times over.

Maybe you know that already — there are alarming stories in the news every day, like those, last month, that seemed to suggest satellite data showed the globe warming since 1998 more than twice as fast as scientists had thought (in fact, the underlying story was considerably less alarming than the headlines). Or the news from Antarctica this past May, when a crack in an ice shelf grew 11 miles in six days, then kept going; the break now has just three miles to go — by the time you read this, it may already have met the open water, where it will drop into the sea one of the biggest icebergs ever, a process known poetically as “calving.”

Watch: How Climate Change Is Creating More Powerful Hurricanes

But no matter how well-informed you are, you are surely not alarmed enough. Over the past decades, our culture has gone apocalyptic with zombie movies and Mad Max dystopias, perhaps the collective result of displaced climate anxiety, and yet when it comes to contemplating real-world warming dangers, we suffer from an incredible failure of imagination. The reasons for that are many: the timid language of scientific probabilities, which the climatologist James Hansen once called “scientific reticence” in a paper chastising scientists for editing their own observations so conscientiously that they failed to communicate how dire the threat really was; the fact that the country is dominated by a group of technocrats who believe any problem can be solved and an opposing culture that doesn’t even see warming as a problem worth addressing; the way that climate denialism has made scientists even more cautious in offering speculative warnings; the simple speed of change and, also, its slowness, such that we are only seeing effects now of warming from decades past; our uncertainty about uncertainty, which the climate writer Naomi Oreskes in particular has suggested stops us from preparing as though anything worse than a median outcome were even possible; the way we assume climate change will hit hardest elsewhere, not everywhere; the smallness (two degrees) and largeness (1.8 trillion tons) and abstractness (400 parts per million) of the numbers; the discomfort of considering a problem that is very difficult, if not impossible, to solve; the altogether incomprehensible scale of that problem, which amounts to the prospect of our own annihilation; simple fear. But aversion arising from fear is a form of denial, too.

In between scientific reticence and science fiction is science itself. This article is the result of dozens of interviews and exchanges with climatologists and researchers in related fields and reflects hundreds of scientific papers on the subject of climate change. What follows is not a series of predictions of what will happen — that will be determined in large part by the much-less-certain science of human response. Instead, it is a portrait of our best understanding of where the planet is heading absent aggressive action. It is unlikely that all of these warming scenarios will be fully realized, largely because the devastation along the way will shake our complacency. But those scenarios, and not the present climate, are the baseline. In fact, they are our schedule.

The present tense of climate change — the destruction we’ve already baked into our future — is horrifying enough. Most people talk as if Miami and Bangladesh still have a chance of surviving; most of the scientists I spoke with assume we’ll lose them within the century, even if we stop burning fossil fuel in the next decade. Two degrees of warming used to be considered the threshold of catastrophe: tens of millions of climate refugees unleashed upon an unprepared world. Now two degrees is our goal, per the Paris climate accords, and experts give us only slim odds of hitting it. The U.N. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change issues serial reports, often called the “gold standard” of climate research; the most recent one projects us to hit four degrees of warming by the beginning of the next century, should we stay the present course. But that’s just a median projection. The upper end of the probability curve runs as high as eight degrees — and the authors still haven’t figured out how to deal with that permafrost melt. The IPCC reports also don’t fully account for the albedo effect (less ice means less reflected and more absorbed sunlight, hence more warming); more cloud cover (which traps heat); or the dieback of forests and other flora (which extract carbon from the atmosphere). Each of these promises to accelerate warming, and the history of the planet shows that temperature can shift as much as five degrees Celsius within thirteen years. The last time the planet was even four degrees warmer, Peter Brannen points out in The Ends of the World, his new history of the planet’s major extinction events, the oceans were hundreds of feet higher.*

The Earth has experienced five mass extinctions before the one we are living through now, each so complete a slate-wiping of the evolutionary record it functioned as a resetting of the planetary clock, and many climate scientists will tell you they are the best analog for the ecological future we are diving headlong into. Unless you are a teenager, you probably read in your high-school textbooks that these extinctions were the result of asteroids. In fact, all but the one that killed the dinosaurs were caused by climate change produced by greenhouse gas. The most notorious was 252 million years ago; it began when carbon warmed the planet by five degrees, accelerated when that warming triggered the release of methane in the Arctic, and ended with 97 percent of all life on Earth dead. We are currently adding carbon to the atmosphere at a considerably faster rate; by most estimates, at least ten times faster. The rate is accelerating. This is what Stephen Hawking had in mind when he said, this spring, that the species needs to colonize other planets in the next century to survive, and what drove Elon Musk, last month, to unveil his plans to build a Mars habitat in 40 to 100 years. These are nonspecialists, of course, and probably as inclined to irrational panic as you or I. But the many sober-minded scientists I interviewed over the past several months — the most credentialed and tenured in the field, few of them inclined to alarmism and many advisers to the IPCC who nevertheless criticize its conservatism — have quietly reached an apocalyptic conclusion, too: No plausible program of emissions reductions alone can prevent climate disaster.

Over the past few decades, the term “Anthropocene” has climbed out of academic discourse and into the popular imagination — a name given to the geologic era we live in now, and a way to signal that it is a new era, defined on the wall chart of deep history by human intervention. One problem with the term is that it implies a conquest of nature (and even echoes the biblical “dominion”). And however sanguine you might be about the proposition that we have already ravaged the natural world, which we surely have, it is another thing entirely to consider the possibility that we have only provoked it, engineering first in ignorance and then in denial a climate system that will now go to war with us for many centuries, perhaps until it destroys us. That is what Wallace Smith Broecker, the avuncular oceanographer who coined the term “global warming,” means when he calls the planet an “angry beast.” You could also go with “war machine.” Each day we arm it more.

II. Heat Death

Humans, like all mammals, are heat engines; surviving means having to continually cool off, like panting dogs. For that, the temperature needs to be low enough for the air to act as a kind of refrigerant, drawing heat off the skin so the engine can keep pumping. At seven degrees of warming, that would become impossible for large portions of the planet’s equatorial band, and especially the tropics, where humidity adds to the problem; in the jungles of Costa Rica, for instance, where humidity routinely tops 90 percent, simply moving around outside when it’s over 105 degrees Fahrenheit would be lethal. And the effect would be fast: Within a few hours, a human body would be cooked to death from both inside and out.

Climate-change skeptics point out that the planet has warmed and cooled many times before, but the climate window that has allowed for human life is very narrow, even by the standards of planetary history. At 11 or 12 degrees of warming, more than half the world’s population, as distributed today, would die of direct heat. Things almost certainly won’t get that hot this century, though models of unabated emissions do bring us that far eventually. This century, and especially in the tropics, the pain points will pinch much more quickly even than an increase of seven degrees. The key factor is something called wet-bulb temperature, which is a term of measurement as home-laboratory-kit as it sounds: the heat registered on a thermometer wrapped in a damp sock as it’s swung around in the air (since the moisture evaporates from a sock more quickly in dry air, this single number reflects both heat and humidity). At present, most regions reach a wet-bulb maximum of 26 or 27 degrees Celsius; the true red line for habitability is 35 degrees. What is called heat stress comes much sooner.

Actually, we’re about there already. Since 1980, the planet has experienced a 50-fold increase in the number of places experiencing dangerous or extreme heat; a bigger increase is to come. The five warmest summers in Europe since 1500 have all occurred since 2002, and soon, the IPCC warns, simply being outdoors that time of year will be unhealthy for much of the globe. Even if we meet the Paris goals of two degrees warming, cities like Karachi and Kolkata will become close to uninhabitable, annually encountering deadly heat waves like those that crippled them in 2015. At four degrees, the deadly European heat wave of 2003, which killed as many as 2,000 people a day, will be a normal summer. At six, according to an assessment focused only on effects within the U.S. from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, summer labor of any kind would become impossible in the lower Mississippi Valley, and everybody in the country east of the Rockies would be under more heat stress than anyone, anywhere, in the world today. As Joseph Romm has put it in his authoritative primer Climate Change: What Everyone Needs to Know, heat stress in New York City would exceed that of present-day Bahrain, one of the planet’s hottest spots, and the temperature in Bahrain “would induce hyperthermia in even sleeping humans.” The high-end IPCC estimate, remember, is two degrees warmer still. By the end of the century, the World Bank has estimated, the coolest months in tropical South America, Africa, and the Pacific are likely to be warmer than the warmest months at the end of the 20th century. Air-conditioning can help but will ultimately only add to the carbon problem; plus, the climate-controlled malls of the Arab emirates aside, it is not remotely plausible to wholesale air-condition all the hottest parts of the world, many of them also the poorest. And indeed, the crisis will be most dramatic across the Middle East and Persian Gulf, where in 2015 the heat index registered temperatures as high as 163 degrees Fahrenheit. As soon as several decades from now, the hajj will become physically impossible for the 2 million Muslims who make the pilgrimage each year.

It is not just the hajj, and it is not just Mecca; heat is already killing us. In the sugarcane region of El Salvador, as much as one-fifth of the population has chronic kidney disease, including over a quarter of the men, the presumed result of dehydration from working the fields they were able to comfortably harvest as recently as two decades ago. With dialysis, which is expensive, those with kidney failure can expect to live five years; without it, life expectancy is in the weeks. Of course, heat stress promises to pummel us in places other than our kidneys, too. As I type that sentence, in the California desert in mid-June, it is 121 degrees outside my door. It is not a record high.

III. The End of Food
Praying for cornfields in the tundra.

Climates differ and plants vary, but the basic rule for staple cereal crops grown at optimal temperature is that for every degree of warming, yields decline by 10 percent. Some estimates run as high as 15 or even 17 percent. Which means that if the planet is five degrees warmer at the end of the century, we may have as many as 50 percent more people to feed and 50 percent less grain to give them. And proteins are worse: It takes 16 calories of grain to produce just a single calorie of hamburger meat, butchered from a cow that spent its life polluting the climate with methane farts.

Pollyannaish plant physiologists will point out that the cereal-crop math applies only to those regions already at peak growing temperature, and they are right — theoretically, a warmer climate will make it easier to grow corn in Greenland. But as the pathbreaking work by Rosamond Naylor and David Battisti has shown, the tropics are already too hot to efficiently grow grain, and those places where grain is produced today are already at optimal growing temperature — which means even a small warming will push them down the slope of declining productivity. And you can’t easily move croplands north a few hundred miles, because yields in places like remote Canada and Russia are limited by the quality of soil there; it takes many centuries for the planet to produce optimally fertile dirt.

Drought might be an even bigger problem than heat, with some of the world’s most arable land turning quickly to desert. Precipitation is notoriously hard to model, yet predictions for later this century are basically unanimous: unprecedented droughts nearly everywhere food is today produced. By 2080, without dramatic reductions in emissions, southern Europe will be in permanent extreme drought, much worse than the American dust bowl ever was. The same will be true in Iraq and Syria and much of the rest of the Middle East; some of the most densely populated parts of Australia, Africa, and South America; and the breadbasket regions of China. None of these places, which today supply much of the world’s food, will be reliable sources of any. As for the original dust bowl: The droughts in the American plains and Southwest would not just be worse than in the 1930s, a 2015 NASA study predicted, but worse than any droughts in a thousand years — and that includes those that struck between 1100 and 1300, which “dried up all the rivers East of the Sierra Nevada mountains” and may have been responsible for the death of the Anasazi civilization.

Remember, we do not live in a world without hunger as it is. Far from it: Most estimates put the number of undernourished at 800 million globally. In case you haven’t heard, this spring has already brought an unprecedented quadruple famine to Africa and the Middle East; the U.N. has warned that separate starvation events in Somalia, South Sudan, Nigeria, and Yemen could kill 20 million this year alone.

IV. Climate Plagues
What happens when the bubonic ice melts?

Rock, in the right spot, is a record of planetary history, eras as long as millions of years flattened by the forces of geological time into strata with amplitudes of just inches, or just an inch, or even less. Ice works that way, too, as a climate ledger, but it is also frozen history, some of which can be reanimated when unfrozen. There are now, trapped in Arctic ice, diseases that have not circulated in the air for millions of years — in some cases, since before humans were around to encounter them. Which means our immune systems would have no idea how to fight back when those prehistoric plagues emerge from the ice.

The Arctic also stores terrifying bugs from more recent times. In Alaska, already, researchers have discovered remnants of the 1918 flu that infected as many as 500 million and killed as many as 100 million — about 5 percent of the world’s population and almost six times as many as had died in the world war for which the pandemic served as a kind of gruesome capstone. As the BBC reported in May, scientists suspect smallpox and the bubonic plague are trapped in Siberian ice, too — an abridged history of devastating human sickness, left out like egg salad in the Arctic sun.

Experts caution that many of these organisms won’t actually survive the thaw and point to the fastidious lab conditions under which they have already reanimated several of them — the 32,000-year-old “extremophile” bacteria revived in 2005, an 8 million-year-old bug brought back to life in 2007, the 3.5 million–year–old one a Russian scientist self-injected just out of curiosity — to suggest that those are necessary conditions for the return of such ancient plagues. But already last year, a boy was killed and 20 others infected by anthrax released when retreating permafrost exposed the frozen carcass of a reindeer killed by the bacteria at least 75 years earlier; 2,000 present-day reindeer were infected, too, carrying and spreading the disease beyond the tundra.

What concerns epidemiologists more than ancient diseases are existing scourges relocated, rewired, or even re-evolved by warming. The first effect is geographical. Before the early-modern period, when adventuring sailboats accelerated the mixing of peoples and their bugs, human provinciality was a guard against pandemic. Today, even with globalization and the enormous intermingling of human populations, our ecosystems are mostly stable, and this functions as another limit, but global warming will scramble those ecosystems and help disease trespass those limits as surely as Cortés did. You don’t worry much about dengue or malaria if you are living in Maine or France. But as the tropics creep northward and mosquitoes migrate with them, you will. You didn’t much worry about Zika a couple of years ago, either.

As it happens, Zika may also be a good model of the second worrying effect — disease mutation. One reason you hadn’t heard about Zika until recently is that it had been trapped in Uganda; another is that it did not, until recently, appear to cause birth defects. Scientists still don’t entirely understand what happened, or what they missed. But there are things we do know for sure about how climate affects some diseases: Malaria, for instance, thrives in hotter regions not just because the mosquitoes that carry it do, too, but because for every degree increase in temperature, the parasite reproduces ten times faster. Which is one reason that the World Bank estimates that by 2050, 5.2 billion people will be reckoning with it.

V. Unbreathable Air
A rolling death smog that suffocates millions.

Our lungs need oxygen, but that is only a fraction of what we breathe. The fraction of carbon dioxide is growing: It just crossed 400 parts per million, and high-end estimates extrapolating from current trends suggest it will hit 1,000 ppm by 2100. At that concentration, compared to the air we breathe now, human cognitive ability declines by 21 percent.

Other stuff in the hotter air is even scarier, with small increases in pollution capable of shortening life spans by ten years. The warmer the planet gets, the more ozone forms, and by mid-century, Americans will likely suffer a 70 percent increase in unhealthy ozone smog, the National Center for Atmospheric Research has projected. By 2090, as many as 2 billion people globally will be breathing air above the WHO “safe” level; one paper last month showed that, among other effects, a pregnant mother’s exposure to ozone raises the child’s risk of autism (as much as tenfold, combined with other environmental factors). Which does make you think again about the autism epidemic in West Hollywood.

Already, more than 10,000 people die each day from the small particles emitted from fossil-fuel burning; each year, 339,000 people die from wildfire smoke, in part because climate change has extended forest-fire season (in the U.S., it’s increased by 78 days since 1970). By 2050, according to the U.S. Forest Service, wildfires will be twice as destructive as they are today; in some places, the area burned could grow fivefold. What worries people even more is the effect that would have on emissions, especially when the fires ravage forests arising out of peat. Peatland fires in Indonesia in 1997, for instance, added to the global CO2 release by up to 40 percent, and more burning only means more warming only means more burning. There is also the terrifying possibility that rain forests like the Amazon, which in 2010 suffered its second “hundred-year drought” in the space of five years, could dry out enough to become vulnerable to these kinds of devastating, rolling forest fires — which would not only expel enormous amounts of carbon into the atmosphere but also shrink the size of the forest. That is especially bad because the Amazon alone provides 20 percent of our oxygen.

Then there are the more familiar forms of pollution. In 2013, melting Arctic ice remodeled Asian weather patterns, depriving industrial China of the natural ventilation systems it had come to depend on, which blanketed much of the country’s north in an unbreathable smog. Literally unbreathable. A metric called the Air Quality Index categorizes the risks and tops out at the 301-to-500 range, warning of “serious aggravation of heart or lung disease and premature mortality in persons with cardiopulmonary disease and the elderly” and, for all others, “serious risk of respiratory effects”; at that level, “everyone should avoid all outdoor exertion.” The Chinese “airpocalypse” of 2013 peaked at what would have been an Air Quality Index of over 800. That year, smog was responsible for a third of all deaths in the country.

VI. Perpetual War
The violence baked into heat.

Climatologists are very careful when talking about Syria. They want you to know that while climate change did produce a drought that contributed to civil war, it is not exactly fair to saythat the conflict is the result of warming; next door, for instance, Lebanon suffered the same crop failures. But researchers like Marshall Burke and Solomon Hsiang have managed to quantify some of the non-obvious relationships between temperature and violence: For every half-degree of warming, they say, societies will see between a 10 and 20 percent increase in the likelihood of armed conflict. In climate science, nothing is simple, but the arithmetic is harrowing: A planet five degrees warmer would have at least half again as many wars as we do today. Overall, social conflict could more than double this century.

This is one reason that, as nearly every climate scientist I spoke to pointed out, the U.S. military is obsessed with climate change: The drowning of all American Navy bases by sea-level rise is trouble enough, but being the world’s policeman is quite a bit harder when the crime rate doubles. Of course, it’s not just Syria where climate has contributed to conflict. Some speculate that the elevated level of strife across the Middle East over the past generation reflects the pressures of global warming — a hypothesis all the more cruel considering that warming began accelerating when the industrialized world extracted and then burned the region’s oil.

What accounts for the relationship between climate and conflict? Some of it comes down to agriculture and economics; a lot has to do with forced migration, already at a record high, with at least 65 million displaced people wandering the planet right now. But there is also the simple fact of individual irritability. Heat increases municipal crime rates, and swearing on social media, and the likelihood that a major-league pitcher, coming to the mound after his teammate has been hit by a pitch, will hit an opposing batter in retaliation. And the arrival of air-conditioning in the developed world, in the middle of the past century, did little to solve the problem of the summer crime wave.

VII. Permanent Economic Collapse
Dismal capitalism in a half-poorer world.

The murmuring mantra of global neoliberalism, which prevailed between the end of the Cold War and the onset of the Great Recession, is that economic growth would save us from anything and everything.
But in the aftermath of the 2008 crash, a growing number of historians studying what they call “fossil capitalism” have begun to suggest that the entire history of swift economic growth, which began somewhat suddenly in the 18th century, is not the result of innovation or trade or the dynamics of global capitalism but simply our discovery of fossil fuels and all their raw power — a onetime injection of new “value” into a system that had previously been characterized by global subsistence living. Before fossil fuels, nobody lived better than their parents or grandparents or ancestors from 500 years before, except in the immediate aftermath of a great plague like the Black Death, which allowed the lucky survivors to gobble up the resources liberated by mass graves. After we’ve burned all the fossil fuels, these scholars suggest, perhaps we will return to a “steady state” global economy. Of course, that onetime injection has a devastating long-term cost: climate change.

The most exciting research on the economics of warming has also come from Hsiang and his colleagues, who are not historians of fossil capitalism but who offer some very bleak analysis of their own: Every degree Celsius of warming costs, on average, 1.2 percent of GDP (an enormous number, considering we count growth in the low single digits as “strong”). This is the sterling work in the field, and their median projection is for a 23 percent loss in per capita earning globally by the end of this century (resulting from changes in agriculture, crime, storms, energy, mortality, and labor).
Tracing the shape of the probability curve is even scarier: There is a 12 percent chance that climate change will reduce global output by more than 50 percent by 2100, they say, and a 51 percent chance that it lowers per capita GDP by 20 percent or more by then, unless emissions decline. By comparison, the Great Recession lowered global GDP by about 6 percent, in a onetime shock; Hsiang and his colleagues estimate a one-in-eight chance of an ongoing and irreversible effect by the end of the century that is eight times worse.

The scale of that economic devastation is hard to comprehend, but you can start by imagining what the world would look like today with an economy half as big, which would produce only half as much value, generating only half as much to offer the workers of the world. It makes the grounding of flights out of heat-stricken Phoenix last month seem like pathetically small economic potatoes. And, among other things, it makes the idea of postponing government action on reducing emissions and relying solely on growth and technology to solve the problem an absurd business calculation.
Every round-trip ticket on flights from New York to London, keep in mind, costs the Arctic three more square meters of ice.

VIII. Poisoned Oceans
Sulfide burps off the skeleton coast.

That the sea will become a killer is a given. Barring a radical reduction of emissions, we will see at least four feet of sea-level rise and possibly ten by the end of the century. A third of the world’s major cities are on the coast, not to mention its power plants, ports, navy bases, farmlands, fisheries, river deltas, marshlands, and rice-paddy empires, and even those above ten feet will flood much more easily, and much more regularly, if the water gets that high. At least 600 million people live within ten meters of sea level today.

But the drowning of those homelands is just the start. At present, more than a third of the world’s carbon is sucked up by the oceans — thank God, or else we’d have that much more warming already. But the result is what’s called “ocean acidification,” which, on its own, may add a half a degree to warming this century. It is also already burning through the planet’s water basins — you may remember these as the place where life arose in the first place. You have probably heard of “coral bleaching” — that is, coral dying — which is very bad news, because reefs support as much as a quarter of all marine life and supply food for half a billion people. Ocean acidification will fry fish populations directly, too, though scientists aren’t yet sure how to predict the effects on the stuff we haul out of the ocean to eat; they do know that in acid waters, oysters and mussels will struggle to grow their shells, and that when the pH of human blood drops as much as the oceans’ pH has over the past generation, it induces seizures, comas, and sudden death.

That isn’t all that ocean acidification can do. Carbon absorption can initiate a feedback loop in which underoxygenated waters breed different kinds of microbes that turn the water still more “anoxic,” first in deep ocean “dead zones,” then gradually up toward the surface. There, the small fish die out, unable to breathe, which means oxygen-eating bacteria thrive, and the feedback loop doubles back. This process, in which dead zones grow like cancers, choking off marine life and wiping out fisheries, is already quite advanced in parts of the Gulf of Mexico and just off Namibia, where hydrogen sulfide is bubbling out of the sea along a thousand-mile stretch of land known as the “Skeleton Coast.” The name originally referred to the detritus of the whaling industry, but today it’s more apt than ever. Hydrogen sulfide is so toxic that evolution has trained us to recognize the tiniest, safest traces of it, which is why our noses are so exquisitely skilled at registering flatulence. Hydrogen sulfide is also the thing that finally did us in that time 97 percent of all life on Earth died, once all the feedback loops had been triggered and the circulating jet streams of a warmed ocean ground to a halt — it’s the planet’s preferred gas for a natural holocaust. Gradually, the ocean’s dead zones spread, killing off marine species that had dominated the oceans for hundreds of millions of years, and the gas the inert waters gave off into the atmosphere poisoned everything on land. Plants, too. It was millions of years before the oceans recovered.

IX. The Great Filter
Our present eeriness cannot last.

So why can’t we see it? In his recent book-length essay The Great Derangement, the Indian novelist Amitav Ghosh wonders why global warming and natural disaster haven’t become major subjects of contemporary fiction — why we don’t seem able to imagine climate catastrophe, and why we haven’t yet had a spate of novels in the genre he basically imagines into half-existence and names “the environmental uncanny.” “Consider, for example, the stories that congeal around questions like, ‘Where were you when the Berlin Wall fell?’ or ‘Where were you on 9/11?’ ” he writes. “Will it ever be possible to ask, in the same vein, ‘Where were you at 400 ppm?’ or ‘Where were you when the Larsen B ice shelf broke up?’ ” His answer: Probably not, because the dilemmas and dramas of climate change are simply incompatible with the kinds of stories we tell ourselves about ourselves, especially in novels, which tend to emphasize the journey of an individual conscience rather than the poisonous miasma of social fate.

Surely this blindness will not last — the world we are about to inhabit will not permit it. In a six-degree-warmer world, the Earth’s ecosystem will boil with so many natural disasters that we will just start calling them “weather”: a constant swarm of out-of-control typhoons and tornadoes and floods and droughts, the planet assaulted regularly with climate events that not so long ago destroyed whole civilizations. The strongest hurricanes will come more often, and we’ll have to invent new categories with which to describe them; tornadoes will grow longer and wider and strike much more frequently, and hail rocks will quadruple in size. Humans used to watch the weather to prophesy the future; going forward, we will see in its wrath the vengeance of the past. Early naturalists talked often about “deep time” — the perception they had, contemplating the grandeur of this valley or that rock basin, of the profound slowness of nature. What lies in store for us is more like what the Victorian anthropologists identified as “dreamtime,” or “everywhen”: the semi-mythical experience, described by Aboriginal Australians, of encountering, in the present moment, an out-of-time past, when ancestors, heroes, and demigods crowded an epic stage. You can find it already watching footage of an iceberg collapsing into the sea — a feeling of history happening all at once.

It is. Many people perceive climate change as a sort of moral and economic debt, accumulated since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution and now come due after several centuries — a helpful perspective, in a way, since it is the carbon-burning processes that began in 18th-century England that lit the fuse of everything that followed. But more than half of the carbon humanity has exhaled into the atmosphere in its entire history has been emitted in just the past three decades; since the end of World War II, the figure is 85 percent. Which means that, in the length of a single generation, global warming has brought us to the brink of planetary catastrophe, and that the story of the industrial world’s kamikaze mission is also the story of a single lifetime. My father’s, for instance: born in 1938, among his first memories the news of Pearl Harbor and the mythic Air Force of the propaganda films that followed, films that doubled as advertisements for imperial-American industrial might; and among his last memories the coverage of the desperate signing of the Paris climate accords on cable news, ten weeks before he died of lung cancer last July. Or my mother’s: born in 1945, to German Jews fleeing the smokestacks through which their relatives were incinerated, now enjoying her 72nd year in an American commodity paradise, a paradise supported by the supply chains of an industrialized developing world. She has been smoking for 57 of those years, unfiltered.

Or the scientists’. Some of the men who first identified a changing climate (and given the generation, those who became famous were men) are still alive; a few are even still working. Wally Broecker is 84 years old and drives to work at the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory across the Hudson every day from the Upper West Side. Like most of those who first raised the alarm, he believes that no amount of emissions reduction alone can meaningfully help avoid disaster. Instead, he puts his faith in carbon capture — untested technology to extract carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, which Broecker estimates will cost at least several trillion dollars — and various forms of “geoengineering,” the catchall name for a variety of moon-shot technologies far-fetched enough that many climate scientists prefer to regard them as dreams, or nightmares, from science fiction. He is especially focused on what’s called the aerosol approach — dispersing so much sulfur dioxide into the atmosphere that when it converts to sulfuric acid, it will cloud a fifth of the horizon and reflect back 2 percent of the sun’s rays, buying the planet at least a little wiggle room, heat-wise. “Of course, that would make our sunsets very red, would bleach the sky, would make more acid rain,” he says. “But you have to look at the magnitude of the problem. You got to watch that you don’t say the giant problem shouldn’t be solved because the solution causes some smaller problems.” He won’t be around to see that, he told me. “But in your lifetime …”

Jim Hansen is another member of this godfather generation. Born in 1941, he became a climatologist at the University of Iowa, developed the groundbreaking “Zero Model” for projecting climate change, and later became the head of climate research at NASA, only to leave under pressure when, while still a federal employee, he filed a lawsuit against the federal government charging inaction on warming (along the way he got arrested a few times for protesting, too). The lawsuit, which is brought by a collective called Our Children’s Trust and is often described as “kids versus climate change,” is built on an appeal to the equal-protection clause, namely, that in failing to take action on warming, the government is violating it by imposing massive costs on future generations; it is scheduled to be heard this winter in Oregon district court. Hansen has recently given up on solving the climate problem with a carbon tax alone, which had been his preferred approach, and has set about calculating the total cost of the additional measure of extracting carbon from the atmosphere.

Climate Scientist James Hansen: ‘The Planet Could Become Ungovernable’
The 10-Book ‘Uninhabitable Earth’ Reading List
Hansen began his career studying Venus, which was once a very Earth-like planet with plenty of life-supporting water before runaway climate change rapidly transformed it into an arid and uninhabitable sphere enveloped in an unbreathable gas; he switched to studying our planet by 30, wondering why he should be squinting across the solar system to explore rapid environmental change when he could see it all around him on the planet he was standing on. “When we wrote our first paper on this, in 1981,” he told me, “I remember saying to one of my co-authors, ‘This is going to be very interesting. Sometime during our careers, we’re going to see these things beginning to happen.’ ”

Several of the scientists I spoke with proposed global warming as the solution to Fermi’s famous paradox, which asks, If the universe is so big, then why haven’t we encountered any other intelligent life in it? The answer, they suggested, is that the natural life span of a civilization may be only several thousand years, and the life span of an industrial civilization perhaps only several hundred. In a universe that is many billions of years old, with star systems separated as much by time as by space, civilizations might emerge and develop and burn themselves up simply too fast to ever find one another. Peter Ward, a charismatic paleontologist among those responsible for discovering that the planet’s mass extinctions were caused by greenhouse gas, calls this the “Great Filter”: “Civilizations rise, but there’s an environmental filter that causes them to die off again and disappear fairly quickly,” he told me. “If you look at planet Earth, the filtering we’ve had in the past has been in these mass extinctions.” The mass extinction we are now living through has only just begun; so much more dying is coming.

And yet, improbably, Ward is an optimist. So are Broecker and Hansen and many of the other scientists I spoke to. We have not developed much of a religion of meaning around climate change that might comfort us, or give us purpose, in the face of possible annihilation. But climate scientists have a strange kind of faith: We will find a way to forestall radical warming, they say, because we must.

It is not easy to know how much to be reassured by that bleak certainty, and how much to wonder whether it is another form of delusion; for global warming to work as parable, of course, someone needs to survive to tell the story. The scientists know that to even meet the Paris goals, by 2050, carbon emissions from energy and industry, which are still rising, will have to fall by half each decade; emissions from land use (deforestation, cow farts, etc.) will have to zero out; and we will need to have invented technologies to extract, annually, twice as much carbon from the atmosphere as the entire planet’s plants now do. Nevertheless, by and large, the scientists have an enormous confidence in the ingenuity of humans — a confidence perhaps bolstered by their appreciation for climate change, which is, after all, a human invention, too. They point to the Apollo project, the hole in the ozone we patched in the 1980s, the passing of the fear of mutually assured destruction. Now we’ve found a way to engineer our own doomsday, and surely we will find a way to engineer our way out of it, one way or another. The planet is not used to being provoked like this, and climate systems designed to give feedback over centuries or millennia prevent us — even those who may be watching closely — from fully imagining the damage done already to the planet. But when we do truly see the world we’ve made, they say, we will also find a way to make it livable. For them, the alternative is simply unimaginable.

*This article has been updated to provide context for the recent news reports about revisions to a satellite data set, to more accurately reflect the rate of warming during the Paleocene–Eocene Thermal Maximum, to clarify a reference to Peter Brannen’s The Ends of the World, and to make clear that James Hansen still supports a carbon-tax based approach to emissions.

Former Seattle producer Jake Muir rides a new wave of aquatic ambient music on the deeply peaceful "High Tide." by Dave Segal

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

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

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

          Comment on Getting Off (Or Avoiding) Blood Pressure Meds by Charlotte      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
My 78-yr old mother has been on Hydrochlorothiazide, Ibersartan, Amlopidine and Metoprolol for approxmiately 15 years -- along with 2 antcoagulants and 2 cholesterol meds. I did not realize she was on so many meds until recently due to her horrible discomfort, extreme difficulty breathing, sudden deafness, kidney failure, etc. So I am trying to help her taper off and remove some of her meds as her blood pressure is actually quite low -- averaging between 115/55-125/60 over the past few weeks. We started by removing one of her antidepressants Wellbutrin (no idea why her docs gave her those many years ago as one of its many side effects are hypertension). After 4 days of herring off those meds, her blood pressure plummeted to 85/35 and has been very low since. Her doctor recommended removing hydrochlorothiazide first altogether, and reducing er Amlodopine by half. When I give her all of her meds as scheduled, her BP is still very low, ranging between 100/45 to 115/55. My question is, which medicine do you think would be the safest to remove or taper next? I would really like to get her off of al of those meds but she has a couple of stents put in about 10 years ago and she sometimes gets chest pains (although I wonder if those are caused by her many meds or maybe are digestive).

Beste Hyper. Wat er met Alex Jones gebeurd is ook deel van het grotere plaatje. Ik ben absoluut geen fan van hem en het is al lang gebleken dat hij met zijn polariserende schreeuwerigheid deel uit uit maakt van de gecontroleerde oppositie. Heb je hem ooit te keer horen gaan tegen het door de talmudische Joden beheerste Israël, of tegen de bankierselite. In mijn beleving zijn Trump en Alex Jones twee lakens van hetzelfde pak en zijn ze gericht op het emotioneel manipuleren van mensen om de grotere agenda te helpen bevorderen. In 2009 werd Argusoog op een nogal intimiderende manier benaderd door het Meldpunt Internet Discriminatie (MIND naar aanleiding van het ook in dit artikel benoemde voor Argusoog geschreven artikel 'Wie zijn de werkelijk uitverkorenen.' Op niet mis te verstane wijze werd de redactie van Argusoog meegedeeld dat zij moeite hadden met een passage in dat artikel, waarin ik refereerde aan de door dr. Harrel Rhome weergegeven feiten en die moest verwijderen. Ik heb die passage toen aangepast zonder daarbij geweld te doen aan de essentie ervan. In de aangepaste versie van het artikel heb ik ook duidelijk aangegeven dat ik die aanpassing onder druk van het MIND heb moeten vormgeven. Van niemand kwam daar toen een reactie op. Alex Jones heeft met zijn grote roeptoeter zich in de picture geplaatst en wordt nu tot zwijgen gebracht. Waarom pas nu? Welke werkelijk rol speelt hij, gezien zijn gecontroleerd oppositie zijn in dit geheel? Het lijkt me beter om daar de aandacht op te focussen dan je opnieuw mee te laten nemen in een emotioneel manipulerende psy-op!

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment Announces Scribblenauts Mega Pack

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announced Scribblenauts Mega Pack, a new two-game collection featuring full versions of Scribblenauts Unlimited and Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure along with bonus content for both games. It will be available September 18th for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One and Xbox One X with a RRP of £24.99.

Scribblenauts Unlimited fosters unlimited creativity, exploration and social elements that create a fun experience for fans of all ages. The game features a huge side-scrolling open world with high-definition, hand-drawn scenery and objects where players can help the game’s hero, Maxwell, solve robust puzzles and challenges by summoning any object they can imagine. Scribblenauts Unlimited has been updated with two new bonus levels, supports online sharing of user-created objects, updates two-player mode, and features a new easy-to-use “sunflower” style text entry system. The new Zed Zeppelin level lets players battle sky pirates and work with crew members to keep the dirigible safe while the new Land of Sweet Hyperbole level allows players to drive around in a candy car and interact with candy neighbours.

Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure melds the boundless creativity of Scribblenauts with thousands of DC characters and objects - all drawn in the distinctive Scribblenauts art style. In the game, Maxwell comes to the aid of the mightiest DC Super Heroes Batman, Superman and the rest of the Justice League as they face the fiercest DC Super-Villains, such as The Joker, Lex Luthor and Siniestro. Fuelled by the player’s imagination, where anything they write comes to life, Maxwell must use his magic notebook to summon heroes and tools to stop the villains' evil schemes and save the universe. In his imaginative and comical quest, he must travel to iconic DC locations such as Gotham City, Metropolis, Atlantis and two new bonus locations, Titans Tower, under attack by the formidable demon Trigon, and Belle Reve, the base of operations for the Task Force X. Scribblenauts Unmasked: A DC Comics Adventure has also been updated with hundreds of new DC characters, objects and costumes.

We have an adopted cat, Reddy Fox, who suffers from hyperesthesia (fear of his tail.) He seems weirdly wired, has a heart condition and was supposed to drop dead by 6 months old. He is now over 4 years old and going strong. His bouts usually are worse when he is hungry so I feed him when he begins with the low growl (which is not directed at us.) If anyone has any helpful ideas, I'd be grateful.

DUI/Drivers License Checkpoint Planned this Weekend

  The Salinas Police Department  will be conducting a DUI/Drivers License Checkpoint on August 10, 2018 at an undisclosed location within the city limits between the hours of 7:00 p.m. to 02:30 a.m.   

 In recent years, California has seen a disturbing increase in drug-impaired driving crashes.  The Salinas Police Department supports the new effort from the Office of Traffic Safety that aims to educate all drivers that 'DUI Doesn't Just Mean Booze.”  If you take prescription drugs, particularly those with a driving or operating machinery warning on the label, you might be impaired enough to get a DUI.  Marijuana can also be impairing, especially in combination with alcohol or other drugs, and can result in a DUI.

 The deterrent effect of High Visibility Enforcement using both DUI checkpoints and DUI Saturation Patrols has proven to lower the number of persons killed and injured in alcohol or drug impaired crashes.  Research shows that crashes involving an impaired driver can be reduced by up to 20 percent when well-publicized proactive DUI operations are conducted routinely.

 DUI Checkpoints like this one are placed in locations based on collision statistics and frequency of DUI arrests, affording the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence. Locations are chosen with safety considerations for the officers and the public.  

 In California, alcohol involved collisions led to 1,155 deaths and nearly 24,000 serious injuries in 2014 because someone failed to designate a sober driver. 

 Officers will be looking for signs of alcohol and/or drug impairment, with officers checking drivers for proper licensing, delaying motorists only momentarily.  When possible, specially trained officers will be available to evaluate those suspected of drug-impaired driving, which now accounts for a growing number of impaired driving crashes. Everyone should be mindful that if you're taking medication – whether prescription or over-the-counter – drinking even small amounts of alcohol can greatly intensify the impairment affects. 

 Studies of California drivers have shown that 30 percent of drivers in fatal crashes had one or more drugs in their systems.  A study of active drivers showed more tested positive for drugs that may impair driving (14 percent) than did for alcohol (7.3 percent).  Of the drugs, marijuana was most prevalent, at 7.4 percent, slightly more than alcohol.

 Salinas PD offers these reminders to ensure you have a safe night of fun that doesn't involve a DUI:

  • Decide before you go out whether you plan to drink or drive. You can't do both.
  • If you plan to drink, designate a sober driver before going out or map out another safe way to get home by taxi, ride-share or public transportation. You can also look up designated driver services in your area using the National Directory of Designated Driver Services (NDDDS).
  • See your friend or other patron impaired trying to get behind the wheel? Take the keys and help them make other arrangements to get where they are going safely.
  • Report drunk drivers – Call 911.

People are encouraged to be a part of the designated driver very important person ('DDVIP”) program. As a DDVIP, you can ensure those drinking get home safely and get rewarded for it. Partnering bars and restaurants statewide have created non-alcoholic specialty drinks ('DDrinks”) for sober drivers:

 Recording Artists Against Drunk Driving (RADD) also offers a Designated Driver Rewards program at 43 college campuses statewide: Local bars and restaurants provide non-alcoholic drinks and/or food specials to DD's.

 Getting home safely is cheap, but getting a DUI is not! Drivers caught driving impaired and charged with DUI can expect the impact of a DUI arrest to be upwards of $13,500. This includes fines, fees, DUI classes, license suspension and other expenses not to mention possible jail time.

 Funding for this checkpoint is provided to Your Police Department by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

          Oligotrophic lagoons of the South Pacific Ocean are home to a surprising number of novel eukaryotic microorganisms      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The diversity of microbial eukaryotes was surveyed by environmental sequencing from tropical lagoon sites of the South Pacific, collected through the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH)'s Explore21 expedition to the Solomon Islands in September 2013. The sampled lagoons presented low nutrient concentrations typical of oligotrophic waters, but contained levels of chlorophyll a, a proxy for phytoplankton biomass, characteristic of meso‐ to eutrophic waters. Two 18S rDNA hypervariable sites, the V4 and V8–V9 regions, were amplified from the total of eight lagoon samples and sequenced on the MiSeq system. After assembly, clustering at 97% similarity, and removal of singletons and chimeras, a total of 2741 (V4) and 2606 (V8–V9) operational taxonomic units (OTUs) were identified. Taxonomic annotation of these reads, including phylogeny, was based on a combination of automated pipeline and manual inspection. About 18.4% (V4) and 13.8% (V8–V9) of the OTUs could not be assigned to any of the known eukaryotic groups. Of these, we focused on OTUs that were not divergent and possessed multiple sources of evidence for their existence. Phylogenetic analyses of these sequences revealed more than ten branches that might represent new deeply‐branching lineages of microbial eukaryotes, currently without any cultured representatives or morphological information.

          A workers’ resistance to the crisis in Venezuela      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Venezuela under President Nicolás Maduro has further descended into crisis and chaos since Maduro was re-elected in May in an election marked by low turnout and lack of options to vote for. Since the election, though, new workers’ struggles have arisen and spread, though the local and international media have ignored them. This resistance poses an alternative to both the corrupt and repressive Maduro government and the right-wing opposition backed by the U.S. which has opposed reforms and popular power since former President Hugo Chavez came to power.

On August 4, after the interview below was completed, Maduro survived an attack during a speech in Caracas. Drone aircraft carrying explosives reportedly flew close to the president and his entourage and detonated. Maduro was unhurt. The government blames the attack on opponents working with the U.S. and Colombia to topple Maduro.

Gonzalo Gómez is a Venezuelan revolutionary, member of the socialist organization Marea Socialista, co-founder of the independent left-wing website, and a veteran of union and popular struggles in Venezuela for over 40 years. In mid-July, he was interviewed by Carlos Carcione about the situation in Venezuela and the next steps for socialists in the country. The interview was translated into English by Eva María.

ACCORDING TO the information we have, struggles by workers have begun in the country over wage demands and working conditions. Other large protests are taking place over the collapse of public services, such as electricity, water and telecommunications, as well as the situation with public transportation and roads, and also the CLAPs [boxes with food essentials distributed by the government to low-income families] that are not arriving. Could you tell us what the situation is like?

AFTER THE May 20 elections [won by Nicolas Maduro], there has been an escalation of conflicts and demands from workers and from many social sectors in the country. This process has not stopped. On the contrary, it is increasing with new sectors joining every day.

Striking nurses in Caracas demand a fair wage and relief from the crisis
Striking nurses in Caracas demand a fair wage and relief from the crisis

Among the most outstanding are the mobilizations that the nurses of public hospitals and maternity hospitals have been leading for more than two weeks. They are demanding a fair salary; some slogans call for salaries to match the level of the Canasta Básica [the basic needs for a household], which is also what the Constitution [of 1999, which Maduro is attempting to re-write] states.

It’s necessary to bear in mind that the salary today is less than what it costs to get to work. And this also leads to the demand for the improvement of health services: there are no medical supplies, no medicines, inadequate medical equipment — and to top it off, doctors are leaving the country.

However, the government reportedly granted increases to the military that are known to be very close to the Canasta Básica or higher for the upper ranks. These motivated nurses to say “We want a salary like the military’s,” and others to say, “We want to make what Tisbay Lucena [the president of the National Electoral Council] makes in two weeks.”

The nurses are taking to the streets and have the support of patients and their families. They are opting for street protests because the government is in a de facto shutdown in the health sector due to a lack of resources and starvation wages.

This situation of crisis and abandonment is suffered by the vast majority of public-sector workers, as well as throughout the country. For example, workers in the university sector are also going out to protest over wages.

Leaders of the official trade unions try to make agreements behind the backs of the workers with increases that are negligible and completely unsatisfactory. The workers remain unaware of these “agreements,” and the struggles continue.

Workers at the Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Technology and many satellite institutions in this ministry have joined protests and struggle. And just as in the health sector, the demand for higher wages is merged with the demand to improve the conditions of the services they provide.

Electricity workers, telephone workers for CANTV in some regions, some postal workers are taking action. And some who have not yet taken to the streets are beginning to issue statements and demands addressed to the government, as well as protests through communiqués about the situation in which they find themselves, mainly in the public sector.

Then there is also a tendency towards workers in related sectors working together, and in some cases, coordinating struggles. This marks the prospect of a general national struggle for wages and also for the improvement of public services.

For workers in other countries to understand the situation, it should be said that Venezuelan workers and their families would be living on these wages with one or two eggs a day or with a can of tuna a day per household.

The government provides care packages with some food products, called CLAP boxes, to a part of the population. These create a clientelist relation with the government, but they are not part of peoples’ salaries. The system is also very insufficient. People can’t freely decide what food or products they buy. Such measures have been typical of neoliberal governments for social control of the poor.

This has to be put in the context of a collapsing situation. You can’t get transportation to work or you don’t have cash to pay for it, and then you go to work in shifts or part-time. The workers are dividing up a few days a week because they can’t even successfully get to work consistently. The economy is collapsing, and so is Venezuelan society and the state.

We at Marea Socialista are going to be involved in these struggles, bringing our solidarity, our support and our proposals, and helping to amplify the demands and experiences.

We believe that each of these struggles must achieve its objectives. We must not allow them to be repressed, and we should push for them to coordinate into a national struggle for higher wages.

The focus is now in the struggle for wages, but the communities and neighborhoods are also coming out to demand the basic functioning of public services that are currently in disarray: lack of water, constant blackouts, interruptions in phone service, inconsistency in garbage pickup, etc.

WHAT DO you think is the current political situation in the country?

THE GOVERNMENT doesn’t guarantee the normal functioning of the country, nor the living conditions of the people, nor does it really manage to govern. It does not stop hyperinflation. It simply contributes to chaos.

It behaves like an authoritarian government toward the people, but it has no authority to bring order to the economy or to put a stop to the corruption of which it is a part.

The situation is so serious that even some sectors of the PSUV [United Socialist Party of Venezuela, the ruling party] are aware of what is happening and criticisms of the government of Nicolás Maduro are beginning to multiply. Because what the government is doing is equivalent to the effects of neoliberal governments. Because of the precariousness of wages, because employment has no meaning or value, and there is an exodus of professionals and workers.

They are reducing the functioning of the state apparatus to a minimum, albeit without abandoning corruption, to the obvious detriment of living conditions, which is clear in the case of the health sector.

The government attributes all this to a supposed “economic war” against it, but we all know that capital has always sought profit at the expense of everyone else, and it is the government that has the power to influence a set of variables. If the government does not give the necessary wage increases, then they must be held responsible. If it does not provide basic services, the same thing applies.

And we are not only talking about the National Executive, because the National Constituent Assembly (ANC) forged by Maduro — though we can consider it to be illegitimate — is supposed to be supra-constitutional and universal, but even it isn’t capable of fixing things.

All they are trying to do is adjust the political regime to the requirements of capitalist accumulation of the ruling bureaucracy into the new global framework, guarantee themselves freedom to engage in embezzlement, contain the people under social and repressive control, and ensure impunity for their power elite.

Another example of the bureaucratic disaster is PDVSA [the state oil company]. Oil production has fallen to an all-time low. The Maduro government is bankrupting the company — if it’s not already bankrupt.

Basic industries, including the steel sector, are going through a historic decline in production, producing what was previously produced in a few days over the course of a year.

The government can only keep itself in power while we are overwhelmed by appalling corruption. It does nothing to recover the country’s embezzled resources, because the government itself is knee-deep in corruption, whose haul is equivalent to almost a decade of imports.

And on the other hand, the government has prioritized the payment of an illegitimate foreign debt and is pledging the country’s little oil production in exchange for Russia’s and China’s financial aid in the future, putting at risk national and state sovereignty over PDVSA.

This shows that the only plan they have is to unload the crisis on the population. They seek to distract us with calls for electoral processes in very dubious conditions. But the government isn’t carrying out its duty to solve national and working people’s problems.

In sum, we have a disastrous combination of factors: authoritarianism and the degradation of democracy; the collapse of the functioning of the state for social and economic affairs; a frightening setback in the standard of living of the people in contrast to what had been achieved during the Bolivarian Revolution; as well as rampant corruption linked to a mafia pattern of accumulation, which cannot be fixed with this government, nor with a government of the old oligarchy.

This is why I sometimes comment that “La V se ha cuarteao.” [The Fifth Republic is going the way of the Fourth.] The people who have begun to rebel in Venezuela are doing so because daily life is already impossible and because they are reacting against the dismantling of everything. The gravity of the current situation leads us to say that the country must go through a refoundation.

WHAT DO you propose as a way out?

WE HAVE to start from these struggles because they mean a shift in the national situation.

The workers and the popular sectors have started to respond. They have gone from a situation in which uncertainty, demoralization, fear and a desire to flee the country prevailed to the terrain of struggle. People are going out to fight in the streets because they are cornered by a government that does not want and cannot offer alternatives.

These struggles must be coordinated and extended nationally. But the solution will not come as long as we keep doing the same things we’ve done up to this point. We need an emergency plan that is really on the side of the workers and the popular sectors, not that of the bureaucracy, the corrupt and those who take advantage of the crisis to do business and become an elite of predatory power.

This emergency plan would have to guarantee a salary at the level of the Canasta Básica of goods and updated periodically to keep up with hyperinflation, so that wages don’t plummet. This would just be putting into effect what is established in Article 91 of our Constitution [established by Chávez in 1999, in contrast to the one Maduro is trying to draft].

Initially, at least, it can start with what the nurses who are fighting are demanding. For example, we want to get paid at the same level as military officers.

Among other things, we need to recover the funds embezzled from the country, which amount to billions of dollars. The assets and accounts of the corrupt must be confiscated. We also insist on the cessation of payments of the foreign debt and the initiation of a public and citizen audit of this debt, as it is illegitimate and the product of corrupt dealings.

As for other ways we can get the needed resources. First, we can get them from the production of the state-owned companies themselves, especially the food industry, which the government has left practically inactive and whose products are diverted to smuggling circuits or to parallel markets.

This recovery isn’t going to be guaranteed by the corrupt bureaucracy, but rather by the effective participation and control of workers, peasants and communities.

For this plan to be carried out, then, another government is needed, one that is willing and able to carry this plan forward. Neither nor the right-wing opposition, which represents big capital and has leached off the corrupt state, want to apply these solutions. We need another political direction.

This is why we are fighting to build Marea Socialista. At the same time, we say that the workers who are fighting and those who are critical of the government must create a new political alternative for the country that embraces one of our most characteristic slogans: Neither bureaucracy nor capital!

In the international and regional context, the people have also come out to fight and are strongly questioning governments. Some of these governments are using left-wing rhetoric, but empty of content, and in the name of that, they are snatching democratic and social conquests from the peoples and even committing real massacres. This is what is happening in the case of Ortega in Nicaragua.

Governments like Ortega’s and Maduro’s end up becoming instruments of counterrevolution against their people, and today, they are actually implementing a counterrevolution in our countries.

We, in the heat of the struggles, find ourselves needing to build the political vehicles to oppose these leaders and their parties at the same time as we continue to fight the old bastions of right-wing power.

That is why we are trying to build alternatives and new political references with a national reach. But we need and seek to develop international connections with those with whom we share strategic outlooks and who want to struggle alongside us.

Hence our relationship with and our effort to build a new international space as Anticapitalistas en Red, which has been bringing together several revolutionary, democratic, anti-capitalist and anti-bureaucratic political organizations in Latin America and other parts of the world.

If it feels like you blinked and suddenly fall is right around the corner, don’t panic: We promise there’s still ample time to check some final must-do items off the old summer bucket list. But as you squeeze in those last-minute beach trips and backyard barbecues, if you’ve got little ones at home, it’s also time to start getting excited about back-to-school season—and this year, there’s lots for families to look forward to.

“This fall, parents are putting more of an emphasis on creativity, self expression, and individuality when it comes to tackling their back-to-school lists,” reports Etsy Trend Expert Dayna Isom Johnson. Forget one-size-fits-all gear and accessories: From unexpected animal motifs to inclusive toys to cheerful duds championing favorite causes, the biggest kid-friendly trends of the season are all about helping your mini-me stand out and make their dazzling, one-of-a-kind personality known.

Read on to discover some of Dayna’s favorite examples of these kid-friendly trends—and tell us about your all-time favorite back-to-school Etsy purchase in the comments below.

Inclusive toys

Every child comes into the world with their own unique point of view—so why should all their playthings look the same? “It’s so important for children of all backgrounds and abilities to have the opportunity to see themselves in the toys and games they play with,” says Dayna. And this season, Etsy sellers are celebrating the differences that make us beautiful, and reflecting them back in a line of handcrafted, highly personalized toys. “From multiracial dolls with skin tones of every shade to dolls with hearing aids and sensory-sensitive toys, playtime can—and should—be fun and inclusive.”

Llama drama

Our love of unicorns will never fade, but this fall, “it’s time for a new animal to take a turn in the spotlight,” says Dayna. Introducing: llamas. These cuties might be native to South America, but if the recent explosion of llama-adorned items on Etsy is any indication, their appeal is undeniably global. This school year, get ready to see these four-legged fuzzy friends show up on everything from personalized lunch bags to baby mobiles.

Self-care for kids

Healthy habits start young, and in an increasingly fast-paced, hyper-connected world, it’s more important than ever to encourage kids to prioritize their physical and mental health from the get-go. Whether you’re heading to a Mommy-and-me yoga class, or indulging in an extra-long bath time (cue the bubbles!), self-care can take many forms—but some of our favorites for fall put an emphasis on education. Help kids remember to check in on their well-being with a colorful four-pack of vinyl stickers reminding them to eat food, drink water, nap, and breathe, or show them how to pay it forward with an idea box full of wooden coins labeled with assorted acts of kindness. Our favorite? “Share a smile with someone.”

Little change-makers

“Today’s families are more engaged than ever in social, political, and environmental issues,” says Dayna—and it’s never too early to start educating little ones on the importance of being an active citizen of the world. Whether you’re volunteering at your local senior center, learning about sustainable food production at a nearby farm, or just taking your rescue pup out for a stroll, consider bringing your kiddos along for the ride and helping them dress the part with an on-message T-shirt or pin. Because, as Free To Be Kids reminds us with this ethically produced toddler top: “The world isn’t going to change itself.”

Rainbow bright

“Rainbows are the ultimate sign of happiness and optimism,” says Dayna, who’s calling them out as a trending motif to watch for back-to-school 2018. From literal interpretations you can hang on your wall in fiber-art or decal form to more abstract versions including a particularly fierce made-to-order denim jacket with rainbow-fringes sleeves, there’s no place this cheerful staple isn’t surfacing for kids. We were starting to feel jealous—until we realized the jacket comes in adult sizes too.

Hands-on DIYs

Sure, childhood can be messy, but this fall parents are leaning in and embracing the chaos with a slew of fun hands-on projects and activities. “The do-it-yourself trend is fun for all involved and promotes quality family time,” says Dayna. And this season’s most popular picks are all about encouraging creativity and self-expression—and giving your mini-artists room to let their imaginations run wild. Whether they’re playing toymaker by decorating a stuffed animal in the colors and patterns of their choosing, or donning their architect hat to assemble a modular wooden dollhouse based on a blueprint all their own, prepare to be impressed by the results.

Milestone signs

A picture is worth a thousand words—but that doesn’t mean your most meaningful snaps can’t benefit from a few carefully selected ones in the frame. “This year, personalize that treasured memory with a trendy sign that will make your kid stand out,” says Dayna. Make your first-day photos pop with a personalized prop—or use the same approach to celebrate another kind of exciting milestone, like a new addition to the family. Created with social media in mind, there’s a photo-ready milestone sign designed to help you capture all the moments that matter.

          Hasbro Announces Plans for 'Power Rangers' Movie Sequel      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Hasbro’s licensing plans for the iconic Power Rangers brand will resemble the playbook used for Transformers and My Little Pony, featuring a “very robust” line of products “coming from a number of different partners,” Brian Goldner, Chairman and CEO of Hasbro told analysts, reports Insider Licensing.

Hasbro acquired Power Rangers and other brands from Saban Brands for $522 million earlier this year. Goldner termed 2019 a “transition year” for Power Rangers as Hasbro introduces new products in March and April. The existing inventory of Power Rangers products is expected to be sold through retail by mid-2019 and new entertainment content and licensed products will arrive the following year, he said.

Many of Saban’s licensees also have developed My Little Pony and Transformers products, so Power Rangers’ shift to new ownership will be “relatively seamless,” Goldner said. Hasbro also has hired “key personnel” from Saban responsible for the Power Rangers brand, with Saban CEO Haim Saban serving as a creative consultant, he said.

Power Rangers’ will generate an operating profit similar to Hasbro’s other franchise brands and has a “significant opportunity for growth given where the brand had been most recently,” Goldner added. Hasbro will work with a film studio to develop a new Power Rangers movie as a follow-up to the 2017 release. In addition to Power Rangers, Hasbro also acquired Saban properties including My Pet Monster, Luna Petunia, Popples and Julius Jr.

The post-credits scene of PR2017 shows a green jacket while a teacher calls out the name of Tommy Oliver, one of the most famous characters from the Power Rangers franchise. If the film does happen, the cast are hoping they hire a female actor to play the Green Ranger to balance out the team.

Meanwhile Paramount and Hasbro’s All Spark Pictures have postponed release of a new Transformers 6 film until after 2019, due largely to the release of the Bumblebee film late this year, which pushed out plans for home entertainment. Transformers 6 had been scheduled for release on June 21, 2019. Bumblebee, directed by Travis Knight, stars Hailee Steinfeld, John Cena, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., Rachel Crow, and Pamela Adlon. It will be released on December 21st.

While the film side of the series is currently in a state of dusting itself off, the wider franchise is doing quite well in its 25th year.

An anniversary episode called "Dimensions in Danger" will air at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Tuesday, August 28 on Nickelodeon USA, the date that Mighty Morphin Power Rangers first premiered on the Fox Kids Network. The special, which will form part of the franchise's current "Super Ninja Steel" TV series, will see the Super Ninja Steel Rangers team up with Legendary Rangers in an epic battle to save the world.

In addition to the TV series, the comics are running a well-received event called "Shattered Grid" that features dozens of Rangers, there's an online streamed RPG series called HyperForce and a board game that was just announced.

Do you know how difficult it is to describe Iceland without feeling like a slave to hyperbole and su
          “Stolen” by Rythmatik – A Song Feature      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
     Iceland continues to be a source of accomplished musicians. In view of the country’s population, the flow rate of quality music defies logic. The most recent discovery is Rythmatik. The band’s single “Stolen” is lyrically and melodically powerful. Our flawed understanding of the lyrics is included in this post (you’re invited to post corrections in the “comments” section). The lyrics are sometimes clever (“You’ll only speak from your heart, or your behind”) and sometimes insightful and provocative:
I’m glad to say
The only prejudice
I hold in my heart
Is for people
With more money than thought

     Other than the chorus, “Stolen” is more spoken word than sung. But the cadence and inflections embrace the message. Perhaps the best example is in the line “Unless the lab coat says it’s needed,” when a slightly deranged speech approach provides insight into the role of the person wearing “the lab coat.”

      “Stolen” begins with a quick-twitch guitar hook that is melodically simple, but demanding to perform. The percussion soon joins with a force. The members of Rythmatik are Hrafnkell Hugi Vernharðsson (guitar, vocals), Pétur Óli Þorvaldsson (bass), Valgeir Skorri Vernharðsson (drums), and Árni Freyr (guitar). The band is currently based in Reykjavik, Iceland. Fitting for an Icelandic band, they are signed with Ice Will Melt Records (of Germany)

      Paraphrasing content about Rythmatik:
  Rythmatik is an Indie Rock band known for tits tight and powerful live performances. The band became a househould name in Iceland after winning the National Icelandic Battle of the Bands in 2015. Since then, Rythmatik has come a long way. After spending two years constantly writing, rehearsing and performing their patented powerful and energetic live show to sold out audiences around the Reykjavík area, the band finally decided to buckle down and begin working on their debut album – “Grin & Panic.”

Lyrics of “Stolen” by Rythmatik (sorry, rife with errors from best guesses)
I’m glad to say
The only prejudice
I hold in my heart
Is for people
With more money than thought

But honestly
It’s just jealousy
I’m way to way
Not to let the good life
Get the best of me

A stick up the ass
Ain’t a proper substitute for a spine
By the way you’re off kilter
And you’re causing splinters

People with broken hearts
With their liver on their sleeve
Their heart
A featherweight contender
But not by itself will remember

Well, you seem to remember yourself
Taller than this
Standing on the shoulders of
Treading for boulders

You should
Pick your words
Be kind
You’ll only speak from your heart
Or your behind

In a way you got this
Coming back, yah
Feeling the heat, boy
It’s clearer than that
It’s a shift shaker
A heart spot breaker
Scratching that itch
Like you got on your back

I’m glad to say
The only prejudice
I hold in my heart
Is for people
With more money than thought

But honestly
It’s just jealousy
I’m way to way
Not to let the good life
Get the best of me

Well, I walk or run the risk
To choke on the medicine
Unless the lab coat says it’s needed
If it’s the other guy
I think I’m trying to feel it
Cause at this point
I think it could be excessive
Let’s just hope if you will follow point
The lousy death trap

In a way you got this
Coming back, yah
Feeling the heat, boy
It’s clearer than that
It’s a shift shaker
A heart spot breaker
Scratching that itch
Like you got on your back

Previously On MGoBlog Hello post from Ace.
Notes No twitter! Missouri State basketball decommit.



Ronnie Bell is the kind of recruit who assumes that Bill in Social Studies is at it again when someone tells him Michigan's on the phone:

“I went through the entire football season, and it wasn’t until a month after football season ended [that Michigan reached out]. Mentally, I was like, ‘Dang, football isn’t going to happen.’ I can’t even explain how surprised I was. I was like, ‘What?!’ I thought for sure I was being pranked.”

At the time Bell was headed to Missouri State for basketball, which he'd committed to before an 89-catch, 1600+ yard senior season on the gridiron. He was the Kansas City area's player of the year, and that's a fairly large area with several P5 recruits annually. But still the phone did not ring unless Bill in Social Studies had managed to slip his minders yet again.

Michigan only stumbled on him because Harbaugh's brother-in-law is a basketball coach in the area and tipped him off towards the end of that monster season. Michigan put on the tape, and:

"There's got to be a problem here," Harbaugh thought.

There was not. And Harbaugh isn't just blowing smoke about a flier Michigan took. Let's take the unusual step of embedding his highlights in the body of the post, because you may as well scout the guy too:

That is good tape.

[After the JUMP: hermit story]

Bad tape has a lot of wide open easy catches and replays. Bell's tape has a lot of high-pointed balls in traffic and a healthy number of circus catches, with routine balls limited to touchdowns because all touchdowns must go in highlight reels no matter how banal. He's obviously too dang skinny, but being a basketball recruit first and foremost through November of 2017 explains that away rather nicely. That also helps explain the bizarre shape of Bell's recruitment. Harbaugh again:

"He didn't go to any of the shoe camps. The Adidas camp, the Nike camp, or the Under Armour camp. He was busy playing AAU basketball."

Harbaugh said Bell played AAU basketball every summer since the sixth grade, keeping him from attending camps populated by football coaches.

Bell's avoidance of camps was so strident as to be obtuse. His head coach:

Ronnie never attended a single camp or do the other things kids do to get recruited. Ronnie never did that. He played in games and practiced with us while other kids were going to this and that, he was declining invitations. Colleges were saying 'come here and run a 40' and he would skip that to come to weights and football practice that afternoon.

I was telling kids to feel free to skip a gym practice for camp or anything you want to and he thought that was ludicrous and I think that hurt him. He didn't get out on the radar, he wasn't chasing them down, and some schools would come in and see the film and were ready to bite, but I think they were waiting for someone to bite first and then it took off when football season started and he was a freak since week one. We all saw it, we knew it, but I think the schools just missed.

Ronnie Bell lives high on a mountaintop and only permits the villagers to ask one question of him every harvest. If that question is "do you play football?" he arcs a single eyebrow and smiles tightly. It is entirely appropriate that Bell's commit announcement wasn't even a tweet but an update to his twitter bio. Then I think he deleted his twitter.

Anyway: that's a pretty good, convincing story why Bell was off everyone's radar. And once he got on someone's there was a reassuring scramble. When Michigan came in with an offer there was a flood of other interest that may have turned into a healthy offer list if Bell hadn't immediately committed to Michigan and returned to his hermit lifestyle. Kansas State was on the verge of an offer; Nebraska, Penn State, and Notre Dame also got on the phone more or less immediately. The sincerity of those inquiries is impossible to judge, obviously.

The hermit lifestyle means that scouting is basically nonexistent. There was a brief round of articles immediately post-commit seemingly based off just highlight film. Woody Wommack confirms that Bell is a human with the proper number of limbs:

"He looks pretty good. He's a little undersized but he's definitely productive and looks good playing receiver. He knows how to get off the line and seems to get open whenever he wants."

Allen Trieu did give it a crack for 24/7:

Smooth, glides around the field and shows good elusiveness, short-area quickness, and change of direction. Does not exhibit elite long speed ... does not have any on-record, reliable times. Tracks the ball and adjusts to passes very naturally. Competitive as a blocker. Conscientious and hard-working kid ... will have to get stronger ... Intangibles -- football smarts, competitive nature and attention to detail -- are likely to allow him to play and produce beyond his measurables.

Trieu's last sentence there is important. Bell's father was the WR coach at Missouri Western until he decided to focus on his son's potential career, and Bell is really, really a coach's son. He's whatever the coaching equivalent of a gym rat is:

I remember he spent a lot of time in college film rooms and he was out there on the field for college practices, so he's very smart. He would come to the sidelines in our games, grab an Ipad and start showing kids what was happening and talking to the quarterbacks. ...he came to our Sunday coaches meetings. He came to every single one of them. We would gather on Sundays, go over the offensive and defensive game plan together and he was at every one of them, ate food, watched through the gameplan and knew everything that was going on.

Steve Lorenz reported shortly after Bell's commitment that the staff "was really impressed with Bell's explosiveness, ball skills and especially his body control" and that his vertical was "massive"; the opposing coach in the article Rivals always does said he had "speed and explosiveness" plus "great hands and quick feet." Elsewhere Brandon Brown put a number on that vert: 40 inches.

Folks are always taking bouncy basketball wings and turning them into tight ends. Here Michigan is taking a guard and doing the same. It's not a bad bet, and when the guy is also amongst the most productive WRs in the country it's a better bet still. Despite Michigan's clear desperation at the point they struck upon Bell he seems like a legitimate sleeper worth the swing.

Etc.: nope.

Why Jeremy Gallon? Bell is much taller, granted, and much lower-rated, granted. He still projects as a surprise outside receiver who uses his relentless attention to detail and resemblance to Snoop from The Wire to outsmart and intimidate opposing defensive backs. Think it's a bad idea to throw up a fade to a six-foot guy? Well, let me tell you about Jeremy Gallon and his rocket boots.

Bell probably won't have the opportunity to be the #1 until deep into his career and that'll separate him from Gallon but if he goes for 300 yards against Indiana remember I told you so. (If he disappears into a hole, forget this post entirely.)

Other comparables include Grant Perry, another super-productive high school receiver who's a bigger slot or smaller outside WR, and Mario Manningham if Michigan rolls like three critical hits in a row.

Guru Reliability: Nil. Unscouted except for some local efforts.

Variance: Moderate. Not huge but will fill out. Super productive and the most coach kid of all coach kids. Floor relatively high.

Ceiling: Moderate-plus. Maybe he's a secret Manningham but probably he's a good #2.

General Excitement Level: Moderate-plus. If Bell was the second guy in a two-WR class with a touted dude that would be just fine with me. As the only dude in his year I'm a little fussed, but not about Bell. He's got a good story, good film, and a ton of production. He's likely to contribute.

Projection: Near-certain redshirt as he transitions away from basketball training and packs on sufficient pounds to not get broken in half. Large and good WR class in front of him should block him through 2020, and then it'll depend on just how those guys develop. If Black and DPJ are still around hard to see Bell passing them; if they're NFL-bound he's going to be in with Martin and Collins for reps.

Slot versatility will help; Bell's career might look like Grant Perry's if Michigan suddenly needed Perry to be the #1 guy as a senior.


August 7th, 2018 at 12:51 PM ^

His Hello post was reasonably effusive as well, which was also surprising given the feelings shown toward other lower-rated WRs.  

I do think he has a potential to be a solid #2; he's athletic enough to battle for balls, and he does feel like a legit 2-sport athlete who can grow into the position as he focuses on it.

I liked his tape back during the commitment post, and Harbaugh talked about Bell and his weird recruitment more than a few times on his podcast. Harbaugh seems sold on him, and what I've see tells me why. 6'1" is plenty tall enough, and his production against a decent level of competition backs it up too.

I don't understand why some of these guys with insane HS production end up ranked so low.  I get that they might not be 4/5* guys due to measurables, but do the ranking services really think a guy with Bell/Perry level of HS production just won't find a way to get open at the next level?  You'd think guys like this would end up in the 400-600 composite range, yet every year there are DE's that have played one season of football in the top 100 because they can run fast and have long arms, ignoring the fact that they have terrible pad level and uh, don't really know how to play football.

Here is another example of a player on Michigan - List of HS accomplishments:

Honors and Rankings
• USA-Today All-Ohio Defensive Player of the Year
• Named Ohio’s Division I Defensive Player of the Year by the Associated Press
• Member of Maxpreps 2016 Football All American team
• OHSAA Defensive Player of the Year honors

That is preferred walk-on Matt Brown.  I can see how HS stars become average P5 players but it is amazing to me that they can basically become unranked nobodies to the ranking services.

It’s tough to see all kids and these services like rivals wants them at their camp. They don’t come to their camp and their rating takes a hit. Bell may turn out to be a stud but as stated never attended camp and everyone assumed he would play basketball so never looked at him. This is where good coaches find those diamonds in the rough

The recruiting "services" are businesses that are focused on profit margin. It's far more efficient for them to send a scout to a camp where he might see 30 or 40 top prospects than to watch tape of high school games that might have 1 or 2 prospects. They save more money by maintaining minimal staffing levels, and missing prospects like Bell or Brown, than they would make by being more accurate and scouting those guys.

Exactly right.  Brian, Ace and company have done a great job of discussing the state of the current recruiting/scouting industry.  Particularly as it pertains to football, it is consolidated and hyper-focused on just a few camps and a few all-star events and shoe company showcases.  "Underwear football" is how many guys are judged, not the actual body of work in pads, etc.

By the same token, there are a lot of ultra productive HS players who never done anything in D1 level. It's a totally different game from HS where you're often the best athlete as opposed to D1 level where everyone is a good athlete.

Same reason why ultra productive college players who don't pan out in the NFL.

What it really boils down to is how lazy these sites have gotten. They hardly do any in-game scouting anymore, so if you’re a guy who doesn’t go to camps you’re going to fly under the radar. Which is why so many people take recruiting rankings with a grain of salt anyway. A guy like Bell who is probably a low 4*/high 3* type gets ranked outside the top 1000 and is ignored completely by the sites until after he commits.

These days whenever a player doesn't do the usual Twitter maneuvers, I actually do consider it a major plus.  UVA has a DT commit for 2019 whose rankings and offers should have placed him a thousand miles beyond UVA's reach.  When he released his top ten I thought "we actually have a shot" because, instead of having a huge fancy graphic made with logos and a picture of him in a thunderstorm (or, like, being a thunderstorm), he just typed them into Twitter.  A revolutionary idea.  Sure enough, he committed to UVA over Ohio State, a whole mess of SEC offers, and goodness knows what else.

A lack of social media interest or savvy seems to be an indicator of high intelligence and character in football and basketball recruits.  (To be clear, it doesn't work the other way around.)  It's weird, but welcome to 2018, I guess.

Cat Diarrhea

Cat diarrhea is the frequent loose and bowel movements in a feline. The causes for it can be varied, from a simple change in cat diet to a more complicated condition. One bout of diarrhea that lasts only one day is no reason for concern. However, if the condition lasts for two days or more, it can lead to dehydration.

Causes of cat diarrhea

As mentioned before, cat diarrhea can have several causes. Some of them include:

  • A change in diet
  • Ingestion of spoiled food
  • Some food intolerance (most typically diary)
  • Bacterial or viral infection
  • Internal parasites (coccidia or roundworms)
  • Allergic reactions
  • Inflammatory bowel disease
  • Kidney or live disease
  • Cancer or tumors in the digestive tract
  • Colitis
  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Stress
  • Other metabolic diseases
  • Constipation
  • Certain medications

Symptoms of cat diarrhea

The most common manifestation of cat diarrhea is loose and frequent stools. Other symptoms you should be looking at are flatulence, blood in the mucus or feces, and difficulty and straining to defecate.

Other symptoms you should check out in your cat are:

  • Fever
  • Vomiting in cats
  • Lethargy
  • Dehydration
  • Weight loss
  • Decreases appetite
  • Increased urgency to defecate

What you should do

This is where you have to be able to determine what are the symptoms of your cat. If you notice that your cat has a loose stool, you should check again the day after that. Commonly, this diarrhea will go away within one day.

If you start noticing, however, that diarrhea happens more frequent than usual, it is time to pay the vet a visit. Some causes of cat diarrhea will probably require some therapy but others can be treated with proper care.

Often it is recommended not to feed your cat during the following 12-24 hours.  However, do provide water to fend off dehydration. At the veterinarian, he will take a stool sample from your cat to provide a more specific treatment. He will prescribe a treatment that will depend on the duration and severity of your cat's condition.

Wernicke’s Encephalopathy is underdiagnosed, undertreated, and preventable in the first place. One study shows that on autopsy, over 12% of alcoholics have findings consistent with Wernicke’s, and over 80% of cases are not diagnosed during life. Furthermore, the dosing of thiamine for treatment or prophylaxis is not well established, and the "standard" dose of 100 mg is not evidence based and is primarily historical. Some authors suggest a dose of 500 mg or higher for patients at risk (which, by the way, includes not just alcoholics but any population at risk of malnutrition: those with eating disorders, cancer, hyperemesis gravidarum, etc.) Given that thiamine is so benign and the benefit of preventing severe neurologic disability is so clear, I find it difficult to argue that we need to be more strict rather than more liberal in deciding who we ought to prescribe it to.

          ENCERRANDO A BOUDOU      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Ayer, 7 de agosto de 2018, el Tribunal Oral en lo Criminal Federal Nº 4, condenó, entre otros, a Amado Boudou por cohecho pasivo y negociaciones incompatibles con la función pública (5 años y 10 meses de prisión), José María Núñez Carmona por cohecho pasivo y negociaciones incompatibles (5 años y 6 meses) y a Nicolás Tadeo Ciccone por cohecho activo (4 años y 6 meses).

En otra resolución dedicada al efecto, además, los jueces Néstor Guillermo Costabel y Pablo Daniel Bertuzzi ordenaron la detención preventiva de Boudou, Nuñez Carmona y Ciccone (éste último en detención domiciliaria). La jueza María Gabriela López Iñíguez votó a favor de la libertad pero quedó en disidencia.

El voto de Costabel y Bertuzzi es bastante extenso pero no logra fundar, a mi juicio, la necesidad y la legalidad de las detenciones preventivas que ordenan. A continuación enunciaremos brevemente por qué hemos llegado a esta conclusión.

1) La jurisdicción excitada

Afirmaron que la petición de la querella (la UIF) habilitaba al tribunal a resolver la cuestión de la prisión preventiva. Tal solicitud se limitó a decir que se debía ordenar la detención de quienes resultaran condenados con pena de prisión a cumplir pues tal circunstancia generaba un peligro de fuga, junto con las "relaciones residuales" de Boudou.

Además, dejaron en claro, para el que gustara saber, que ellos (los jueces) no necesitaban esa petición para ordenar la prisión, dado que tenían esa facultad que derivaba de los hechos del caso. Por ello, resultó un "hito crucial" el dictado de la condena, por lo cual la facultad jurisdiccional resultó activada. Dejaron en claro, entonces, que lo hicieron por sí mismos y gustosos...

2) Citas de organismos internacionales

Hablando de la "naturaleza" de la prisión preventiva, invocan el Informe 35/07 de la Comisión Interamericana (caso Peirano Basso). El párrafo que se transcribe contiene una cita del art. 7, y luego otro párrafo donde se admite la posibilidad de restringir la libertad.

La cita no tiene sentido, son circunstancias que nadie niega.

3) El "temperamento" que adoptarán

En este punto dicen que la resolución ha sido tomada luego de considerar el nuevo "status" de los imputados, que han sido condenados.

Además, aclaran que han tenido en cuenta "las circunstancias particulares de esta causa definidas en contextos muy peculiares". También señalan que ellos están "completamente persuadidos" de que su decisión no afecta el principio de inocencia de los que mandan presos. A quien no persuaden, a mi juicio, es a quienes leen la resolución...

4) El veredicto condenatorio

Según ambos jueces, existe una nueva circunstancia objetiva que es el dictado de la sentencia condenatoria, tras "un juicio en legal forma" donde se discutieron cuestiones de hecho y de derecho, con prueba de "toda índole".

El veredicto, además de representar "un avance sustancial en la determinación de la responsabilidad penal" de los imputados, es una "circunstancia decisivaque amerita revisar la situación de libertad que ostentan hasta hoy dichos encausados" (destacado agregado).

Frente a estas afirmaciones, cabe señalar que la condena no justifica el encarcelamiento. En primer término, la misma cita del fallo que invoca el tribunal contradice su decisión y exige "peligros procesales" o "alguna circunstancia objetiva que supere el hecho mismo de la condena".

Por otra parte, queda claro que el tribunal está invocando el mérito sustantivo de los hechos imputados para justificar el encarcelamiento. Los imputados, en este momento, son jurídicamente tan inocentes como antes de iniciarse el proceso. La inocencia y la culpabilidad, en este sentido, no son graduables. Se es inocente hasta que la condena adquiera firmeza.

El hecho de que los jueces del juicio tengan la certeza de la culpabilidad de los imputados es una exigencia constitucional para el dictado de toda sentencia condenatoria. Si los jueces no tuvieran esa certeza al dictar sentencia y condenaran, estarían cometiendo un delito, estarían prevaricando.

Es decir que siempre que se dicte una condena los jueces que la dictaron deben alcanzar dicha certeza, o no podrían condenar. Por lo tanto, ese dato no puede considerarse como elemento para justificar el encarcelamiento, pues si no, en todos los casos de condena habría que aplicarlo.

El mérito sustantivo, esto es, la sospecha de que el imputado es autor del hecho que se le atribuye, es un requisito que justifica la persecución penal, pero no el encarcelamiento. En este sentido, el grado de sospecha sobre la responsabilidad penal justifica el avance de la persecución. Por eso se exigen distintos estándares probatorios para tomar declaración indagatoria, para elevar el caso a juicio, o para condenar en juicio. Cuando la causa avanza (pasa de una etapa a otra), el grado de sospecha irá aumentando. La certeza sobre la responsabilidad penal, por otro lado, solo se puede afirmar con la firmeza de la condena.

En cuanto al mérito sustantivo y el encarcelamiento preventivo, el primero actúa como presupuesto del segundo. Si no hay mérito sustantivo, lo que se clausura es la persecución penal. Una vez establecido cierto grado de sospecha sustancial sobre la responsabilidad del imputado, se podrá discutir la necesidad y la legalidad del encarcelamiento preventivo. Y allí la justificación solo puede estar vinculada a la existencia de un riesgo procesal, no al grado de sospecha de la responsabilidad personal.

Por estas razones, la "certeza apodíctica" del tribunal no pone en crisis el principio jurídico de inocencia.

La protección del principio de inocencia, además, se ha extendido con el derecho a recurrir la sentencia penal condenatoria requerida por los textos convencionales de jerarquía constitucional (Convención Americana y Pacto Internacional). Por este motivo, no puede haber firmeza de la sentencia condenatoria antes de que se obtenga la conformidad de un tribunal de alzada, a menos que el imputado no ejerza ese derecho.

La práctica que aquí se pretende justificar, por otro lado, representaría una restricción al ejercicio efectivo del derecho a recurrir, pues el imputado tendrá que soportar el encierro y, al ejercer su derecho a recurrir, debería esperar más tiempo para obtener una decisión definitiva de su caso.

5) Las "peculiares circunstancias" del caso

Bueno, aquí entramos en el terreno de la ciencia ficción. En primer lugar, vuelven a citar los particulares elementos del caso penal vinculados con la responsabilidad de los acusados.

Luego de varias páginas en las que se tratan, exclusivamente, la responsabilidad por el hecho, se concluye que los hechos que se imputan elevan el peligro de fuga. ¿Cómo? No se sabe.

Con esto no les parece suficiente. Entonces hablan del peligro procesal que los imputados pueden generar respecto de otras personas, que están siendo actualmente investigadas. Pero no se detienen ahí. Mencionan incluso a "algún otro que puede estar aún detrás y permanece en las sombras de la impunidad".

          Re: Ina May Gaskin leads her own cult      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Coming to a "different conclusion" is fine. But Dr. Tuteur said things that were clearly false, and when I challenge those things, people keep beating around the bush.

Most of all, if I understand the premise of this blog it is a call for a rational reliance on science and logic, and yet the entire post is filled with hyperbole and invective.

She’s "obviously a complete fraud." - Until y'all come to terms with no, she's not, you will make little ground with your target audience. Ina May Gaskin really is a midwife, she really has delivered and overseen the delivery of an enormous number of babies, and numerous intelligent, fair-minded people don't see her as a complete fraud. So the statement is false, she is not "obviously" any of that. Moreso, invoking the statement at the beginning of such an essay is begging for people to jump to logical fallacies instead of encouraging them to use actual logic.

In fact, logical fallacies are heavy in Dr. T's entire piece. Ad hominem, poisoning the well, begging the question, straw man, false generalization, appeal to emotion/fear - they are throughout the piece.

She "has no education or training in midwifery." In fact, the book makes quite clear that she trained with an obstetrician and a local doctor as well as did informal education from numerous textbooks both contemporary and historical. Perhaps Dr. T wants to say "no formal training", but that's not what she said, and presupposes that the formal course of training is automatically superior, which of course puts the cart before the horse.

She "refuses to publish in scientific journals." I clearly disproved that by citing the exact, peer-reviewed publication of The Farm's results.

"she let one of her own children die." She didn't "let" the child die, her one child who died was born over 2 months premature while they were traveling and before Ina May had even settled on The Farm or had any midwifery experience. It was a deeply tramatic, sad experience that led to a degree of depression for Ina May for years, it has nothing to do with her later midwifery practice on The Farm, and the manner in which Dr. T repeatedly weaponizes her own child's death is mean-spirited.

She "is a cult member" - I read numerous obituaries and biographics of Stephen Gaskin from reputable sources, one of which I linked (The New York Times), and none of them described Gaskin as a cult leader and in fact they were almost universally positive. There are plenty of individual things that Gaskin did that various people don't like depending on their own ethics, but it seems clear that he had a lot more good qualities than bad.

In her practice "Medical attention is strongly discouraged, even though there may be a medical problem." The midwives had several types of medical equipment on hand and were trained in its use, as well as a doctor on-call for any emergencies they couldn't handle. There is strong praise for conscientious doctors in multiple places in her book. The book in no way demonizes doctors.

And when I try to google "Ina May" as a cult leader, the only place I can find that makes that claim is...this website.

Which is especially ironic, because the evidence that supposedly proves she is a cult leader is that she is accused by Dr. T of "dismisses opponents", "sets herself up as THE authority", "wields shame and guilt", uses " peer pressure", is "vicious to those who question their beliefs"....which are all attributes that Dr. T is much more guilty of than anything I've ever seen of Ina May.

Look at the words that Dr. T has used towards Ina May, or even towards myself before, and try to find anything that Ina May has ever said that even comes close to that level of vitriol and dismissal. Even the manner in which I was dismissed here (don't back up any of the arguments, just downvote him until the comment goes away and then mock him if he complains) is in line with that approach.

          A RACIST COMMUNIST FAMINE GROWS IN SOUTH AFRICA      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
South African President Cyril Ramaphosa
Leftist land seizures and racist politics will lead to genocide.

"Strongman politics are ascendant," Barack Obama warned in South Africa. He spoke passionately about "the politics of fear and resentment" at the Mandela Lecture. He worried that we were entering a world, “where might makes right and politics is a hostile competition between tribes and races and religions.”

While the media used the remarks to attack Trump's meeting with Putin, Obama had shared a stage with South African President Cyril Ramaphosa who had come to power promising to seize land from white farmers. Ramaphosa was the latest in a series of ANC strongmen, including his predecessor, an alleged rapist, beginning with the Communist terrorist whose legacy Obama was commemorating.

President Ramaphosa had vowed early on to seize land from white farmers without compensation. "The expropriation of land without compensation is envisaged as one of the measures that we will use to accelerate redistribution of land to black South Africans,” he had declared. And denied that such racist Communist tactics were unconstitutional. Now he’s moving to modify South Africa’s constitution.

Initially, the ANC, which is partnered with the South African Communist Party, had claimed that seizing land would not violate the law. Now it’s actually going to change the South African constitution.

“It has become pertinently clear that our people want the constitution to be more explicit about expropriation of land without compensation,” President Ramaphosa announced.

When your only rule is mob rule by ANC thugs, it doesn’t really matter what a piece of paper says.

“We will accelerate our land redistribution programme not only to redress a grave historical injustice, but also to bring more producers into the agricultural sector and to make more land available for cultivation,” Ramaphosa claimed in his State of the Nation address.

Zimbabwe had already made great strides in improving agriculture through land seizures.

Land was stolen from the farmers who knew how to work it and handed out to politically connected thugs. Soon the former "bread basket" of Southern Africa was starving. Black groups pleaded with the white farmers to remain. Rural Zimbabwe died. Hyperinflation made the currency worthless. A trillion dollars might not be enough to buy one egg. A former food exporter was forced to rely on food aid.

"If white settlers just took the land from us without paying for it," Mugabe had declared, "we can, in a similar way, just take it from them without paying for it."

Ramaphosa’s rhetoric is an echo of one of Africa’s worst racist strongmen. Land seizures won’t bring South African land into “full use”, as he claims. It will mean productive land falling into the hands of ANC thugs who will be too corrupt, incompetent and greedy to do the hard work of working the land.

South Africa’s agricultural sector will go the way of Zimbabwe.

Cyril Ramaphosa is one of South Africa's richest men and has an estimated net worth of $550 million. How did a socialist student activist make a mint? The answer is an inevitable as it is unsurprising.

South Africa’s agricultural sector has been steadily in decline. Farms used to provide millions of jobs. Now they offer less than a million. Wheat planting has fallen to a third. Cotton to a tenth. A country that once...Read More HERE

Your car could act a lot more like your iPhone in the future — at least according to Apple patent filings for an augmented reality windshield.

Patently Apple found a European patent application for a windshield display that presents map and road conditions in autonomous cars. Apple has been testing self-driving cars, but hasn't divulged much about the project. We reached out to Apple about the AR display, but haven't heard back.

So yes, in the future might be able to sit back and relax in your self-driving car while information flashes on the heads-up display. (Don’t get too excited, though.

          Civil War 2.0 Looms, But It Won't Be A Race War      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Authored by Kevin Barrett via,

When we get tired of blowing up Muslims for Israel, will we turn on ourselves?

Scenarios for a second American Civil War have existed ever since the first one ended. Some hyperbolists called Reconstruction the Second Civil War. Alt-history novelists have imagined the ascension of Huey Long or George McGovern to the presidency as Civil War II trigger. The real-life (?!) ascension of Trump has inspired similar fantasies, leading red state partisans to gleefully thump their chests and imagine how easy and fun it would be to take San Francisco—a fantasy that triggers the hell out of the SF-based blue staters.

How might civil unrest spill over into civil war?

One common scenario is race war. The late Charles Manson, we are told, staged his killer-hippie mass knifings because he thought the Beatles were sending him secret orders to start a black-vs. white apocalypse. Obviously Manson must have been taking some really, REALLY bad acid while playing Beatles records backward in hopes of hearing John sneering “Paul is dead”—then suddenly grokked that the White Album, whose mysterious title does not appear on the record and makes no sense anyway, is really about white power! Manson lieutenant Tex Watkins explained: “and what it (the song ‘Helter Skelter’) meant was the Negros were going to come down and rip the cities all apart…Before Helter Skelter came along, all Charlie cared about was orgies.”

Though Manson was a raving nut, his vision of race war was inspired by contemporary reality. Indeed, while the hippies carried on with their orgies, “the Negros” did rip cities apart. Even before the Deep State murdered Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., blacks in New Jersey, Detroit, Minneapolis, and many other cities had been tearing things up and burning neighborhoods down. The “Long, Hot Summer” of 1967 featured 159 race riots in dozens of US urban centers, and elements of the National Security State were drawing up contingency plans for a race based civil war.

William Pepper - the King family’s attorney who proved in a court of law that the CIA, FBI, and US army killed Dr. King with the help of their organized crime assets - once spoke with a US Army Colonel who admitted to helping plan the assassination. The Colonel said that the military had done extensive focus group style interviews with participants in the 1967 race riots and determined that Dr. King’s charisma was the biggest factor driving the riots. Counterintuitively, the apostle of nonviolence was inspiring the psychological liberation of black people in such a way that a certain percentage felt empowered to act out their repressed anger. So when King determined to bring half a million followers to Washington, DC and stay there until the feds pulled out of Vietnam and declared a real war on poverty, the Colonel and his friends immediately envisioned the nation’s capital erupting into mass violence that could spread nationwide on a scale many orders of magnitude beyond what had happened during 1967’s Long Hot Summer, perhaps precipitating a real civil war culminating in the revolutionary overthrow of the American State. This, the Colonel explained to Pepper, was the primary reason King had to be terminated…with extreme prejudice.

Predictably, the Deep State’s murder of Dr. King did not solve the racial violence problem. The assassination itself set off a wave of new riots in cities including Chicago, Baltimore, and - sorry, Colonel - Washington, DC. White-dominated forces of the State retaliated with escalating repression. Black communities felt increasingly under siege, and have continued to feel that way until the present day. Whether it is panicky white police shooting down black people during traffic stops, on sidewalks, or in the black people’s own backyards, or whether it is black people “acting out” against whites (an interesting and under-reported case is the possibly-Cointelpro-orchestrated[*] Zebra killings discussed here by Ron Unz) the simmering racial violence in America is a seemingly unavoidable component of most projections for a New Civil War.

Most red state vs. blue state scenarios, of course, have a race war component. When Trump’s red-staters invade San Francisco, for example, it will not only be to punish the latté liberals and happy homos for their mushy-headedness and luxuriously deviant lifestyles, but more importantly to “make America white again” by ending the sanctuary city movement and deporting the illegal immigrants…while presumably also putting any black people who have managed to remain in America’s highest-rent city, as well as the déclassé ones across the Bay, in their properly subservient place. In other words, just as the first Civil War was really about race (i.e., slavery) the second one will build on the same theme.

American War

Or will it? Omar al-Akkad’s notable 2017 novel American War begs to differ.

In El-Akkad’s dystopian vision, the War on Muslims mutates into the War on Southerners—but has nothing to do with race. Instead, the Yankee Terror State turns its savagery against the New Rebels of the Free Southern States because those good ole boys and girls (of all shades of skin pigmentation and sexual preference) refuse to give up fossil fuels, choosing instead to secede from the Union.

Al-Akkad’s vision of blue vs. red global-warming-driven war run amok in a near-future America that has completely forgotten about the whole concept of race is surprisingly plausible, at least while you are reading it. (Civil War I, after all, was really about economics not race, so why shouldn’t Civil War II also be over an economic issue?) The plot turns on the adventures of Sarat, a young Red State woman of mixed and meaningless (near-black Chicano and po’ white trash) ancestry who awakens politically and goes after the Blue State occupiers in pretty much the same way the Iraqi resistance went after George W. Bush’s storm troopers.

Unlike most dystopian science fiction, American War is not just showing us a terrible future that is really an exaggerated (we hope) depiction of the present-day world we live in. Al-Akkad’s fictional 2074 America is not so much a pessimistic caricature of actual 2017 America as a wish-fulfillment dream of Americans karmically reaping what they’ve sown in their War on Muslims, euphemistically known as the “war on terror.” The horrors that Sarat and other southerners experience under Yankee occupation - drone killings, rape, massacres, torture, internment camps, orange jumpsuits - are precisely those that Muslims have been experiencing since the false flag event of September 11th, 2001. Sarat’s fictional resistance, which culminates in a fantastically horrific act of revenge against the Yankees, represents gratifying fantasy payback for the real-life Terror War’s murder of 32 million Muslims, and a prescient and timely warning about what GWOT is likely to lead to. The whole thing is premised on helping the American/Western reader empathetically imagine what the post-9/11 world looks like to Muslims in general and resistance fighters in particular: Al-Akkad fosters empathy and identification with our victims by casting the archetypal victim-turned-resistance-fighter as ordinary American rather than exotic foreigner.

Zone 23

An even better dystopian “new civil war” novel, C.J. Hopkins’ Zone 23, hasn’t yet garnered the kind of mainstream support that helped American War collect positive reviews in such outlets as The New York Times, win awards, and generally get noticed and sell plenty of copies.

Perhaps that shouldn’t surprise us, since Hopkins, a regular contributor to Unz Review, is on the red side in the real red-vs.-blue civil war that is raging all around us. (I’m talking about the red-pill vs. blue pill war, of course, not the phony culture wars thing ginned up by the Deep State.) Omar El Akkad, despite the subversive aspects of his book, is basically a blue pill kind of guy: His global warming alarmism, gratuitous decision to make his heroine a lesbian, denial of the existence of race, and general penchant for victimology (not to mention his complete avoidance of 9/11 truth in a Muslim-POV takedown of the “war on terror”) all go down well with the Establishment.

C.J. Hopkins offers a deeper, more accurate, vastly funnier, more genuinely subversive vision. His far-future America, which bears an uncanny resemblance to our nightmarish present, features drone-patrolled hyper-surveiled cities, each of which is divided by an Israeli-style Wall complete with Israeli-style checkpoints and incursions featuring Israeli-style killings of hapless untermenschen. But instead of Israelis vs. Palestinians, the divide here is between the Normals on one side of the wall and the Anti-Socials on the other.

The Normals -  good corporate citizens who are submitting to pharmaceutical and genetic correction so they can work and consume and conform and live meaningless lives like everybody else without batting an eyelash - are conditioned to fear and loathe the Antisocials, who retain enough humanity to rebel, in whatever pathetically insignificant way, against corporatist dystopia.

Zone 23, like American War, imagines the future as post-racial: Hopkins’ Normal vs. Antisocial divide isn’t about race. But it is, nonetheless, very much about behavioral genetics. In this (not so) far future, the Hadley Corporation of Menomonie, Wisconsin has developed a variant-corrected version of the MAO-A gene. Inserted into embryos via germline genetic engineering, this patented DNA produces “clears”: people who are intelligent but incurious, incapable of emotionally-driven fight-or-flight aggression (including the most common defensive variety), “easily trained, highly responsive to visual and verbal commands,” and so on. In other words, perfect corporate citizens!

The corporatist state naturally strives to perfect itself, imposing a “final solution” to the ASP (anti-social person) problem by mandating that henceforth no non-genetically-engineered babies may be born. The result is a very one-sided “race war” in which a few antisocial malcontents try to hold out against what amounts to a genocide against “uncorrected” humanity. The plot follows two of those ASP antiheroes as they throw rocks at the Israeli bulldozer of corporatist genocide.

Hopkins’ ferociously funny yarn is not just a satire on our ever-worsening techno-dystopia. In imagining a genetic basis to the difficulties many of us experience adjusting to hyperconformist “technologically-enhanced” lifestyles, and in portraying individuals struggling and flailing against the uber-civilization around them like flies caught a spider web, Zone 23 resonates with the great critiques of technological civilization. According to this tradition, which runs from Taoist Chinese hermits through Middle Eastern prophets and Marxian critics of “alienation” to contemporary scientists who insist that humans are genetically suited to be hunter-gatherers not high tech city dwellers, we are grossly unsuited for living the kind of lives that most modern humans are, for all practical purposes, forced to lead. Through the Brechtian device of estrangement, Hopkins forces us to recognize ourselves in his beleaguered ASP antiheros.

The apostles of race war, from Hitler to Charles Manson to today’s ultra-Zionists, are hugely bothered by what they see as a supposed basic and massive incompatibility between races, i.e. broad, loosely-identifiable swathes of the human genome. According to their bleak vision, we are doomed to fight and kill our cousins whose slightly different average genetic profiles mark them as Other.

Perhaps there is some truth to this notion. Perhaps our nature includes a strong tendency to in-group vs. out-group hostility. And perhaps we tend to divide in-group from out-group on the basis of ascribed ancestry, that is, along tribal lines.

But those who are hugely bothered by other races (or their own race), like those who loathe people of a different ideology or religion or language, may be getting all worked up over nothing. They may in fact be projecting their own experience of a much deeper alienation. They may simply be natural-born hunter gatherers caught in the trap of modern technological civilization, living fantastically comfortable yet somehow miserable lives, desperately seeking someone Other to blame for their predicament.

Có thể hiểu như vầy:

Vấn đề nhân quyền của Việt Nam giống như vấn đề vũ khí hạt nhân của Triều Tiên, đều đang là cái gây cản trở cho các hoạt động thương mại đầu tư giữa Việt Nam, Triều Tiên và các nền kinh tế lớn như Mỹ, Châu Âu. Mà nếu được tháo gỡ rào cản thì sẽ đem lại lợi ích rất nhiều cho đất nước.

Chúng ta biết rằng Việt Nam hiện nay đang mở cửa kinh tế, hội nhập ngày càng sâu vào môi trường thế giới, mới đây VN còn góp quân đi tham gia gìn giữ hòa bình với Liên Hợp Quốc ở Nam sudan.

Nhưng sự hội nhập và phát triển của VN còn chưa hết tiềm năng, đáng ra có những việc chúng ta có thể làm được giúp cho nguồn vốn đầu tư dồi dào hơn, hàng hóa xuất khẩu thuận lợi hơn, đất nước phát triển mau chóng hơn, đời sống người dân được thịnh vượng hơn.

Có một rào cản ngăn cản chúng ta đạt được điều đó, đó là do giữa VN và nhiều nền kinh tế lớn còn có sự bất đồng về vấn đề nhân quyền, về các quyền tự do dân chủ mà người dân được hưởng.

Với các nền kinh tế lớn như Mỹ, Châu Âu thì các hoạt động kinh tế thương mại của họ lại gắn liền với các giá trị tự do dân chủ mà họ cổ xúy, họ cho rằng sự thịnh vượng quốc gia bắt đầu từ tự do cá nhân và thương mại tự do, đây là những giá trị mà thực ra đã trở thành phổ quát được luật hóa thành luật pháp quốc tế.

Họ sẽ khó đặt niềm tin vào những quốc gia mà họ cho rằng còn chưa tuân thủ luật pháp quốc tế, chưa tôn trọng các giá trị phổ quát và do vậy làm giảm đi những cơ hội thương mại đầu tư (luật pháp quốc tế bao gồm các công ước quốc tế ví như Công ước quốc tế về nhân quyền, Công ước quốc tế về các quyền và dân sự và chính trị của Liên Hợp Quốc).

Khi chính phủ nước họ chưa tin tưởng thì doanh nghiệp nước họ cũng được khuyến cáo và kém đi niềm tin để đầu tư làm ăn. Do vậy, nếu VN chúng ta cho thấy nước mình là một thành viên có trách nhiệm, tôn trọng luật pháp quốc tế và các giá trị phổ quát thì các nước họ sẽ yên tâm làm ăn với một đất nước có ý thức như vậy.

Họ sẽ mở rộng các phạm vi giao thương, phát triển đối tác đầu tư lâu dài, thay vì thương mại theo sự vụ ngắn hạn vì thiếu sự tin cậy lẫn nhau.

Hãy hình dung xem nếu Triều Tiên khi tuân thủ luật pháp quốc tế giải trừ vũ khí hạt nhân thì đất nước sẽ hưởng lợi về kinh tế thương mại đầu tư thế nào, nhân dân sẽ hưởng lợi ấm no như thế nào?

Ở Việt Nam vấn đề cũng tương tự chỉ khác nhau ở mức độ. Cho nên mọi người cần nhìn ra vấn đề. Rào cản nhân quyền thực sự là chướng ngại không đáng có, rất đáng tiếc, làm giảm đi cơ hội được phát triển phú cường của nhân dân.

It's word-of-the-year time again. Collins Dictionary chose " Fake news " and went with " complicit ." Others have proposed #metoo, "alternative facts," "take a knee," "resistance" and "snowflake." It's striking how many of those are the words and phrases that warring political camps have been hurling at each other across our deepening national divide. The Trump presidency didn't create that rift but it sort of made it official. The acrimonious climate has ruined a lot of Thanksgivings, as two economists recently demonstrated . Using cellphone tracking data, they found that Americans from politically divided families spent 20 minutes less time at the holiday dinner table after the election than the year before. Wonkish terms like " hyper-polarization " don't begin to convey that sense of unrelenting rancor. Instead, the meme of the moment is to say that American politics has become "tribal," which I'll make my word of the year. It's not a new word even in that meaning,

Senator Chuck Grassley goes to the WSJ to call out the emptiness of Senator Schumer's demand to see Brett Kavanaugh's documents from his time as staff secretary to President George W. Bush. Schumer has announced that he has no intention of voting for Kavanaugh, so why does he need to see the documents if his mind is already made up?
Presumably, Mr. Schumer announced that he would oppose Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination before he read the judge’s 307 written opinions and the many other opinions he joined. Certainly, it was before he reviewed the more than 17,000 pages Judge Kavanaugh provided to the committee in response to our bipartisan questionnaire and an estimated one million pages of documents the committee has requested from the Bush White House, where Judge Kavanaugh once worked.

It stands to reason that Senator Schumer wasn’t too concerned about Judge Kavanaugh’s record before he announced his opposition. Why is it so important to Senator Schumer now?

Democratic leaders are demanding access to every page from every email and every paper record from every one of the hundreds of White House aides who came and went during the entire eight years of President Bush’s time in office. This includes records that merely mention Judge Kavanaugh’s name and records he’s never seen. That is not reasonable. As I have made clear, I will not put taxpayers on the hook for a fishing expedition.

These documents include those from Judge Kavanaugh’s time as White House staff secretary, a post that manages the paper flow into and out of the Oval Office. They are both the least relevant documents to the nomination and the most sensitive to the executive branch, two considerations that have guided previous review processes. They’re extremely sensitive because they contain policy advice that went directly to President Bush, and the policy directives that came directly from him, on the full range of presidential responsibilities, including national security.

The staff secretary is an important position, but it’s decidedly less revealing of Judge Kavanaugh’s legal thinking than his 12 years as a judge on the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia and his legal service in the White House Counsel’s Office and the Office of Independent Counsel—roles in which he acted as a lawyer. The staff secretary documents consist largely of materials Judge Kavanaugh didn’t write. They were prepared by policy advisers across the executive branch. The materials are also saturated with irrelevant documents—including miscellaneous news clippings, the daily schedule, and even the White House lunch menu....

So recent complaints from Mr. Schumer and other Democrats about the scope of records requests ring hollow, especially coming from senators who have already declared their opposition to Judge Kavanaugh and initially refused even to meet with him....

The next time you hear complaints about the Senate Judiciary Committee’s vetting process—the most extensive and transparent in history—remember Mr. Schumer’s pledge to oppose Judge Kavanaugh with everything he’s got. How much more do Democratic leaders need to know when they’re already voting no?
Exactly. I'm glad that Grassley is signaling that he's not going to fall for these stalling tactics.

David French writes in the NYT
about the banning of Alex Jones by Apple, Facebook and YouTube. As French and anyone with a moral sense acknowledges, Alex Jones is a loathsome person. But there is another method for tackling his disgusting statements - slander and libel laws rather than having private companies deciding suddenly that his language is too objectionable for their platforms.
Let me start by making a few things abundantly clear. First, Alex Jones is a loathsome conspiracy theorist who generates loathsome content. Second, there is no First Amendment violation when a private company chooses to boot anyone off a private platform. Third, it seems reasonably clear that Mr. Jones’s content isn’t just morally repugnant, it’s also legally problematic. He makes wild, false claims that may well cross the line into libel and slander.

Right now, Mr. Jones is defending lawsuits filed by multiple Sandy Hook Elementary families accusing him of making intentionally false factual statements. Most appallingly, he has insisted that these grieving families were faking their pain: “I’ve looked at it and undoubtedly there’s a cover-up, there’s actors, they’re manipulating, they’ve been caught lying and they were preplanning before it and rolled out with it.”

So on Monday, when Apple, Facebook and YouTube acted — in seemingly coordinated fashion — to remove the vast bulk of Mr. Jones’s content from their sites, there’s no cause for worry, right? After all, this was an act of necessary public hygiene. A terrible human being who has no regard for truth or decency is finally getting what he deserves.
The problem is the subjectivity of the sites' decisions.
Rather than applying objective standards that resonate with American law and American traditions of respect for free speech and the marketplace of ideas, the companies applied subjective standards that are subject to considerable abuse. Apple said it “does not tolerate hate speech.” Facebook accused Mr. Jones of violating policies against “glorifying violence” or using “dehumanizing language to describe people who are transgender, Muslims and immigrants.” YouTube accused Mr. Jones of violating policies against “hate speech and harassment.”

These policies sound good on first reading, but they are extraordinarily vague. We live in times when the slightest deviation from the latest and ever-changing social justice style guide is deemed bigoted and, yes, “dehumanizing.” We live in a world where the Southern Poverty Law Center, a formerly respected civil-rights organization, abuses its past trust to label a host of mainstream organizations (including my former employer, the Alliance Defending Freedom) and individuals as “hate groups,” “white nationalists” or “anti-Muslim extremists,” based sometimes on disagreements about theology or sexual morality or sometimes on outright misreadings and misrepresentations of an individual’s beliefs and views.

Exhibit A of how wrong the center has been: In June, it paid Maajid Nawaz $3.375 million for labeling him an “anti-Muslim extremist.” This is rich, considered Mr. Nawaz is a former Islamist turned Muslim reformer.

Yet Big Tech still listens to the Southern Poverty Law Center and takes action to punish its targets. Amazon recently booted Alliance Defending Freedom from its AmazonSmile charity program because of the center’s designation....

One doesn’t even have to look to Big Tech to see the almost infinite malleability of the “hate speech” label. In the name of stopping hate speech, university mobs have turned their ire not just against alt-right figures like Milo Yiannopoulos and Richard Spencer, but also against the most mainstream of conservative voices, like Ben Shapiro and Heather Mac Donald.

Dissenting progressives aren’t spared, either. Just ask Evergreen State College’s Bret Weinstein, who was hounded out of a job after refusing to participate in a “day of absence” protest in which white students and faculty members were supposed to leave campus for the day to give students and faculty members of color exclusive access to the college.
Rather than having these private companies decide on their own what is objectionable to them with vague definitions of hate speech, it would be better, French argues to make their decisions based on the legal definitions of libel and slander.
To be sure, this would tie their hands more: Unlike “hate speech,” libel and slander have legal meanings. There is a long history of using libel and slander laws to protect especially private figures from false claims. It’s properly more difficult to use those laws to punish allegations directed at public figures, but even then there are limits on intentionally false factual claims.

It’s a high bar. But it’s a bar that respects the marketplace of ideas, avoids the politically charged battle over ever-shifting norms in language and culture and provides protection for aggrieved parties. Nor do tech companies have to wait for sometimes yearslong legal processes to work themselves out. They can use their greater degree of freedom to conduct their own investigations. Those investigations would rightly be based on concrete legal standards, not wholly subjective measures of offensiveness.

Private corporations can ban whoever they like. But if companies like Facebook are eager to navigate speech controversies in good faith, they would do well to learn from the centuries of legal developments in American law. When creating a true marketplace of ideas, why not let the First Amendment be your guide?
Sounds like a much more reasonable standard than something as amorphous and subjective as "hate speech."

Ben Shapiro, who has been a target of personal attacks from Jones and thinks Jones is a vile person, also criticizes the decision by these companies to ban him. But, as Shapiro argues, the Left won't stop with Alex Jones.
But I’m far more concerned with social-media arbiters suddenly deciding that vague “hate speech” standards ought to govern our common spaces than I am with the daily dose of detritus distributed by this delirious dunce. Social-media giants had a choice here. If they wanted Jones gone, they could simply have defined a standard limit on the number of debunked conspiracy theories one could peddle on the site before being banned, or they could have created a standard prohibiting public threats.

Instead, they chose the most politically correct way of booting Jones: They claimed he’d violated undefined standards regarding “hate.” That’s why so many on the right are rushing to Jones’s defense — not because they like Jones or anything he stands for, but because the Left is happy to apply double standards under the rubric of “anti-hate measures.”

To see how, we only need to examine the last week of news. Sarah Jeong, the newest member of the New York Times editorial board, has tweeted dozens of times, in racist fashion, about white people. The Left defended Jeong, not on the grounds that the New York Times ought to ignore social-media mobbing, but on the grounds that people of color can’t be racist. Were Jeong white, the Left dutifully explained, she would justifiably be fired; but since she is an Asian-American graduate of Berkeley and Harvard Law School, she’s a victim of the white patriarchy, and thus fully entitled to use racist slurs to target those with less melanin in their skin. “Hate speech,” it seems, only runs one way.

And it only applies to particular viewpoints, too. Suggest that Caitlyn Jenner is a man, and you might be violating crucial social-media “hate speech” taboos; suggest that the Jews are bloodsucking demons, as Louis Farrakhan does, and the leaders of the Women’s March will still hobnob with you.

Is it any wonder, then, that conservatives don’t trust social-media hall monitors to apply their alleged rules with equal vigilance? It’s demonstrative of the echo chamber that is Silicon Valley that rather than going after Jones on some semblance of an objective standard, they went directly for the buzzwords that will be most popular among those who love Sarah Jeong.

Unfortunately, the informal implementation of left-wing “hate speech” standards will likely be only a precursor to far more devastating culture wars to come. That’s because the Left does not operate in good faith. People of rational mind agree that Jones is a never-ending font of silly garbage. But the Left won’t leave it at Jones, which is why the social-media giants didn’t craft an objective standard to apply.

Robby Soave also weighs in to argue that the issue isn't free speech, - after all, these are private companies -
but the "incoherence of 'hate speech.'"
Facebook doesn't actually need a reason to ban people from its platform. It can take virtually any action it thinks will improve the user experience. It could ban all conservatives tomorrow if it so desired.

Facebook did give a reason for banning Jones, though, and it's a fairly weak and ill-defined one. "As a result of reports we received, last week, we removed four videos on four Facebook Pages for violating our hate speech and bullying policies," the company explained. The problem was not that Jones was lying, or engaged in libel, or spreading fake news. The problem was hate speech. But we don't know which statements he made were deemed hateful, or why. We don't know if Jones is being singled out, or if anyone who said the things he said would be banned. We don't know if a statement has to be targeted at a particular person to count as bullying, or whether generic trutherism could fit the bill.

I'm saying this for a third time so that I'm not misunderstood: Facebook can define hate speech however it wants. I am criticizing the lack of clarity in its definition, not because I think the government should intervene, but because I am a user of Facebook who worries that a stronger anti-bullying policy will be difficult to apply evenly.

Jones has been engaged in the same shtick for years. I can't imagine that no one had ever complained about him before. So why now? What is so hateful or bullying about his speech that wasn't apparent last week? What prompted the clearly coordinated campaign to remove him from so many major publishing platforms?
Soave quotes what he wrote in response to Zuckerberg's comments that Holocaust deniers should not be banned from Facebook.
In our modern political discourse, Facebook plays a role very much akin to the public square: a massive one, involving the entire world. The arguments for letting nearly all voices—even deeply evil ones, provided they do not organize direct violence or harassment—be heard on this platform are the same arguments for not taking the European route on hate speech: Policing hate on a very large scale is quite difficult given the frequently subjective nature of offense; we risk de-platforming legitimate viewpoints that are unpopular but deserve to be heard; and ultimately, silencing hate is not the same thing as squelching it.
The story of what has happened with Alex Jones is a good trial of whether or not people believe anymore in the famous quote that Voltaire, apparently, never said, "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it." Such an attitude has long been the classical liberal attitude toward freedom of speech. Sadly, it no longer is. Just about everyone can agree that Alex Jones is truly loathsome. Let him rant his ugliness. Let the courts proceed with the suit by the Sandy Hook parents. At least, if they're going to ban him, don't do it because of some ill-defined "hate speech." Do it because he has made reckless statements about the killings at Sandy Hook that have led to harassment of grieving parents by his rabid viewers. What is more important is the precedent that has been set and where it goes from here.

For an example of how those on the Left will band together to try to ban speech of which they disapprove, witness the recent story about how journalists pressured the Newseum, the museum devoted to freedom of the press, to stop selling T-shirts that say "Fake News." Their objection was that this was legitimizing Trump's attacks on the press. As Tunku Varadarajan points out, they were missing the history of the phrase which first arose by Trump's opponents to characterize how Trump and his supporters manipulated the news. Several months later Trump started using the phrase and was able to turn the tables on those criticizing him. But the media critics of Trump ignored that history and pressured the Newseum to stop selling the shirts.
This sweeping mea culpa leads one to wonder how well the folks at the Newseum know their history. “Fake news” isn’t Mr. Trump’s own coinage. He first tweeted the phrase on Dec. 10, 2016, several months after his media detractors had used it as a barb against him. The modern paternity of the phrase, in other words, lies with the people who wanted to kill off the T-shirt.

But its first recorded use predates the Trump presidency by some distance. On June 7, 1890, the Cincinnati Commercial Tribune headlined a story thus: “Secretary Brunnel declares that fake news about his people is being telegraphed over the country.”

That said, the main objection to the Newseum’s decision isn’t pedantic. It has misunderstood completely the semiotics of the T-shirt. Who takes a T-shirt’s text literally? Wearers put them on for all sorts of reasons, frequently in pursuit of irony. Donning a T-shirt that blares “Fake News” on its front can just as easily be a subversion of the idea—a slap at Mr. Trump—as an endorsement of it.

You’d think the guardians of journalism would get that—even as they strong-arm a museum dedicated to free speech to pull a T-shirt whose message they dislike.

Democratic Senator Mazie Hirono has decided to ask judicial nominees about their sexual history.
At the time, she claimed such questions were relevant because at least one judge had been accused of sexual harassment. The judge in question was Alex Kozinski – on the 9th Circuit – while the first judge Hirono asked these questions to was nominated to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals. Not that the difference matters, but it’s basically like someone from Facebook asking if you ever embezzled money because someone from Twitter was accused of doing so. Same industry, different companies, and using one incident to justify asking inappropriate questions....

Hirono in January asked Judge Kurt Engelhardt two questions about his sexual history designed to look like perjury if someone in the future accused him. Engelhardt was confirmed to the 5th Circuit despite Hirono’s questions, and has thus far not been accused of sexual misconduct.

During his senate hearing, Hirono asked Engelhardt the following:
Since you became a legal adult, have you ever made unwanted requests for sexual favors or committed any verbal or physical harassment or assault of a sexual nature?

As Woehrle and attorney Scott Greenfield have pointed out, this is an incredibly leading question that has two unrelated parts.

“This question deliberately lumps together two very different things,” Woehrle wrote. “A request to your spouse for sexual favors is not illegal, even if your spouse says he doesn’t want sex; by contrast, assault of a sexual nature certainly is illegal, and should preclude anyone who commits it from ever being a judge.”

But as anyone with commonsense would know, there is no way to know something is unwanted until you ask.

“Defenders of Senator Hirono’s questions say they are appropriate because she is asking about unwelcome sexual advances, and sexual harassment involves unwelcome sexual advances,” Woehrle wrote. “But that is as illogical as saying that because Aristotle is a man, all men are Aristotle. To be sexual harassment, sexual advances or other behavior must be ‘unwelcome.’ But that does not mean that all, or even most, unwelcome behavior is sexual harassment.”

Woehrle points out that courts have up held that to be sexual harassment in the legal sense, the unwelcome conduct “must be ‘severe or pervasive’ enough to create a hostile environment for a ‘reasonable person,’ based on their sex, and be ‘objectively offensive,’ not just subjectively unwelcome.”

Kamala Harris, who is all set to run for president in 2020, is fully embracing identity politics. She just doesn't want to call it that. But she's happy to advocate that Democrats should be choosing more women of color. And, by happy coincidence, she is a woman of color. Isn't that a wonderful coincidence?
“I have a problem, guys, with that phrase, ‘identity politics,’” Harris told the audience. “Because let’s be clear, when people say that, it’s a pejorative. That phrase is used to divide, and it is used to distract. Its purpose is to minimize and marginalize issues that impact all of us. It is used to try and shut us up.”

The left have become experts at flipping reality on its head, blaming others for the very behavior they project.

Harris launched into the discussion on identity politics after noting the Democrats “shouldn’t just be thanking women of color for electing progressive leaders in 2018, we should be electing women of color as those leaders.”

The California lawmaker declared Democrats “won’t be shut up, and we won’t be silenced” on issues like playing the race card, abortion and advocating for illegal immigrants.

“And let’s be clear these issues that they’re trying to diminish and demean are the very issues that will define our identity as Americans,” she concluded.
Who knew that our identity as Americans meant supporting abortion and illegal immigration?

One member of the Santa Cruz City Council has made a political gaffe by actually saying what he really believes.
A Santa Barbara city councilman inadvertently let slip the primary purpose of progressivism in 21st century America.

The city recently criminalized the use of plastic straws. Speaking to that issue, Councilman Jesse Dominguez said, “Unfortunately, common sense is just not common. We have to regulate every aspect of people’s lives.”

Got that? "We" are smarter than you and know what's best for you better than you do.
That isn't a conservative using hyperbole to characterize the progressive agenda - that's a politician stating what he believes the real goal is. Now he's apologizing for saying what he really thinks.
The comment sparked an immediate backlash from people who read the quote in Noozhawk and other local media, wondering “did he really say that?” Yes, he did, and on Tuesday, Dominguez apologized for the comment.
“I just wanted to apologize,” Dominguez said at the beginning of the meeting. “A few weeks ago I made a string of words in a rhetorical fashion about regulation and they were not taken as rhetorical and that’s my fault so I want to apologize.”

Steven Hayward comments,
Now, we do have to admit that the good councilman has a point about Santa Barbara citizens lacking common sense. He’s on the city council, after all. Sort of an inversion of the great rhetorical question both Thomas Jefferson and Ronald Reagan liked to ask: “Sometimes it is said that man can not be trusted with the government of himself. Can he, then, be trusted with the government of others?”

But “string of words”? I know of a new editorial board member at the New York Times who will buy that, but otherwise I think everyone can understand exactly what the councilman believes. That “string of words” combines into a noose for individual liberty. And common sense. Here’s to hoping the voters of Santa Barbara recover their common sense and pull the string on Dominguez (and his “words”) at the next election, along with the other five knuckleheads who voted for the plastic straw ban.
Maybe he can address exactly which aspects of our lives he doesn't believe the government should regulate.

Tamara Berens explains how anti-Semitism is a chosen strategy of Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party's leadership. It's been clear for a while now that Corbyn has a history of hanging with anti-Semites and participating in anti-Israel activities. But Corbyn isn't apologizing or resigning as most politicians would have to do if even half of what has been made public about Corbyn's history had come to light. And other leaders of Labour with similarly ugly histories are remaining in leadership. It's clear that this is now a choice and that says a lot about the state of British politics.
erate action to sow discord with both the Jewish community and moderate Labour MPs. The Labour National Executive chose not to fully adopt the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of antisemitism used by the British government, Metropolitan Police, and many other institutions around the globe. They opted instead to omit examples of antisemitism relating to Israel from their definition, including guidance that calling the creation of Israel a racist endeavor is an antisemitic claim. After reacting to the Jewish community’s longstanding pleas for change with empty promises, the adoption of the IHRA definition in full was a prime opportunity for the Labour party to achieve an easy win. The choice to reject it should be seen as nothing less than a deliberate snub of British Jewry.

As well as snubbing the Jewish community, Jeremy Corbyn appears to be actively seeking the silencing of his internal political opponents. Margaret Hodge, a veteran Jewish Labour MP, recently publicly confronted Corbyn about his attitude towards antisemitism, accusing him of being a “racist and anti-Semite.” Ian Austin MP, supporter of the parliamentary Labour Friends of Israel group, also stood up for his values and made his disagreement with Corbyn’s rejection of the IHRA definition known. They are now both under formal investigations by the party and were sent letters threatening "disciplinary action."These investigations seem to be moving suspiciously more swiftly than those initiated by the party against Corbyn allies Ken Livingstone and Naz Shah.

Finally, an old video recently resurfaced of Jeremy Corbyn linking a terror attack in Egypt to “the hand of Israel.” The 2012 interview on Iranian-owned Press TV saw him pedal anti-Israel conspiracy theories in a discussion of a bombing where 16 Egyptian policemen were killed in the Sinai desert. His comments from 2012 were defended last week by a Labour party spokesperson, who asserted that his “speculation” had been factually based on previous Israeli actions in Egypt.
So why would he be doing all this? It could be that he's just an unreconstructed anti-Semite but it seems more like he's chosen this as a political strategy that he thinks will help Labour. It's also clear that Corbyn likes hanging with the sort of company that anti-Semitism puts him into.
Anti-Zionism—and by extension, giving credence to antisemites—is fundamental to the worldview Corbyn has cultivated on his journey to political stardom. For most of his political career, Corbyn was a fringe socialist politician and supporter of the USSR, Syria’s Assad, the Iranian Ayatollahs and Maduro’s Venezuela. After becoming Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn toned down some of this support for radical anti-Western groups. Nonetheless, he has consistently maintained his support for anti-Zionist causes. What’s undoubtable is that throughout his career, his ultimate goal has remained the same; rejecting Western values and embracing the alliance between radical socialists and Islamists in a strategic bid to normalize and implement socialism in the UK.

Politically, Corbyn’s strategy is working: According to a recent YouGov poll, 61 percent of the party believes Corbyn is handling accusations of antisemitism well. And 80 percent of the party deems him a good leader overall. The events of the past few weeks indicate that the Labour leadership has been able to build on their apparent success to formally distance themselves from the overwhelmingly Zionist British-Jewish community. This perhaps became most apparent last Friday, when Jeremy Corbyn published another article in The Guardian disregarding his part in normalizing antisemitism in the party. The piece came out at 5pm, when the majority of Jews in the country were busy preparing for the Sabbath.

The reality is that support from the Jewish community is no longer an indispensable part of the Labour party. In fact, Corbyn’s foreign policy—a large aspect of his political differences to Blair’s Labour—rests on weakening UK-Israel relations. Corbyn has constructed a successful strategy for claiming the Labour party as his own socialist vehicle for disruption of the Western liberal order. Labeling recent events a “scandal” greatly underestimates the strategic nature of his leadership.

If you live in Washington D.C., as my daughters do, and already hate the Metro, now there is an additional reason to be contemptuous of how the Metro is being run.
All of the new 7000 Series rail cars on Washington D.C.’s Metrorail subway system must undergo repairs to replace the cars’ wiring, a new report says.

According to a review conducted by Metro’s Quality Assurance, Internal Compliance & Oversight office, the wire crimping on the cars was not correctly completed. The flawed wiring has and has been a factor in issues with the rail cars and can lead to major delays.

As a result, all of the 548 new rail cars currently in service must undergo repairs that are likely to take a full year to complete. The review determined that Metro did not demand Kawasaki, who was manufacturing the rail cars, to conduct relevant quality checks.
More delays - oh, joy. How can the leaders of Metro not demand quality checks?

I lived in D.C. when the Metro system was built and first opened. At the time, I was so very impressed at its design and how it operated. It was so clean compared to other cities' older systems. It's still clean, but it seems to have slow-downs and gets shut down on some routes way too often.

          Ms. Smith's Back to School Letter      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Welcome Indian Families,

Welcome to a brand new year at Marked Tree High School! My name is Mrs. Kimberly Smith, and I am the principal of MTHS. I have 16 years of experience, with 14 in the Marked Tree School District and 2 in North Carolina. I am a 1997 alumni, and this is home to me and my family. I have been married for 18 years and we have 2 sons. I enjoy reading, camping, and watching my boys play sports in my free time.

This past summer has brought about changes to our building. As all of you are aware, we are in the process of adding a new section. We ask for your patience and encouragement as we transition over the next several months. Small steps lead to great change; that is exactly what we are seeking in the new building for our students. I am looking forward to the day when the doors open for the new year, even though it may be chaotic, so that I can welcome all the students and their families. 

The faculty at MTHS is dedicated to meeting the individual needs of all our students. At MTHS, the parents, teachers, and support staff are all part of a unified family working hard to ensure the safety and well-being of all children while providing them with a challenging and rewarding educational experience. As parents, you play an integral role as a part of this family in the education of your child. Your involvement in your child’s education will help your child achieve more success and have a positive outlook on school. I will post weekly newsletters on our Facebook page with important dates and school events. Also, get to know your child’s teacher and stay updated on classroom events. When coming to the school, please sign in at the principal’s office, which is now located in room 211. You will only be allowed down the hallway for a scheduled conference time with a teacher and with a visitors pass. This is for the safety of all students and to protect instructional time.  

I am excited for another school year with your child. Thank you for entrusting us to nurture, encourage, challenge, and enjoy your children as we begin the 2018-2019 school year!

Kim Smith
